Please watch this video talk. These are real stories. We must not ignore what is really happening in to Christians in our world, but instead should prepare ourselves and our children for the challenges to come. I pray that you will be blessed by this message from our brother in Christ. May you be strengthened in your faith in the Lord, and challenged to reach out to others with the true Gospel, in Christ’s love.

Video: How Do We Prepare For Persecution In America and Canada?

A group of Christians was discovered in North Korea. They had worshiped God and His Son Jesus. Their children were with them. The adults were told by those who had captured them: “If you do not acknowledge our Dear leader as god and if you do not renounce Christ, your children will be hanged.” One of the children looked up at her mother. What would she do? Earlier that morning, twenty-eight other Christians had been bound and taken before a screaming crowd of North Koreans. The guards made it clear: “If you don’t deny your Christ you will die.” The mother thought of her child but she could not deny her Lord. The other Christians quietly made the same decision. Their God was real. The North Korean guards again shouted: “Deny your Christ, or we will hang your children.” The children looked at their parents. The parents loved their children but they knew there was an eternal heaven for them.

They could not deny their Lord. One mother leaned down to her child and whispered with confidence and peace: “Today, my love, I will see you in heaven.”

All the children were hanged. The adults who were still bound had to lie down on the pavement. A large steamroller was brought which was used to flatten the road. They were given one more chance. The guards told them if you give up your Christ you will live. If you don’t give Him up you will die. The Christians thought of their children in heaven and started to sing softly. As the steamroller started to roll over them crushing them to death they were singing: “More love, O Christ, to Thee, more love to Thee.”
