Believers across the world are persecuted for Yeshua (Jesus). Even to the point of torment and death by so called peaceful religions. Freedom is not free, many have paid the price for freedom with their blood such as many missionaries.

HOW CHRISTIANS WERE MARTYRED
GLOBAL PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS
Followers of Yeshua are the most persecuted group of people in the world. Therefore Christianity Today shares what countries persecute Christians the most.
Islamic oppression (29 countries): Therefore this is the main source of persecution that Christians face in more than half of the watchlist countries, including 5 of the 12 where Christian face “extreme” levels: Libya (No 4), Pakistan (No 5), Yemen (No 7), Iran (No 8), and Syria (No 12). Most of the 29 are officially Muslim nations or have Muslim majorities. 7 have Christian majorities with Islamic attacks, such as, Nigeria (No 9), Central African Republic (No 35); Ethiopia (No 36), Democratic Republic of Congo (No 40), Cameroon (No 42), Mozambique (No 45), and Kenya (No 49).
Clan oppression (6 countries): Therefore this is the main source of persecution that Christians face in Afghanistan (No 2), Somalia (No 3), Laos (No 22), Qatar (No 29), Nepal (No. 34), and Oman (No 44).
Dictatorial paranoia (5 countries): Therefore the main source of persecution that Christians face in five countries, mostly in Central Asia with mainly Muslim majorities. Uzbekistan (No 21), Turkmenistan (No 23), Tajikistan (No 33), Brunei (No 39), and Kazakhstan (No 41).
Religious nationalism (3 countries). Christians are primarily targeted by Hindu nationalists in India (No 10); and by Buddhist nationalists in Myanmar (No 18) and Bhutan (No 43).
As a result Christians are the most persecuted group of people in the world.

The video titled MOTHER in the section : Persecuted for Yeshua. The family in this story knew they were persecuted because of their love of Jesus even after they were removed from jail for being a Christian. Although not in jail they were persecuted and had very little to eat. They never cried out in anger to Jesus and remained praiseworthy and the love of Jesus revealed itself by bring a benefactor to their door steps in their hour of need. I enjoy stories where Christians help one another so much!
‘Imam a Christian’ is really good, but all these testimonies really humble me and my approach to my faith – that they would stand for Jesus amidst such persecution – I will continue to pray for you my brothers and sisters!
As Christians who live in countries where we have liberty to practice and preach our faith, we owe to do so and follow the example of many who are bold and strong and do it risking their own lives. Just as our Lord Jesus and His disciples did to fulfill the Great Commission.
The “Forgiveness” video is hard to believe. Being murdered for your beliefs happens all the time and many people don’t know about it. We need to remember and pray for our family across the globe suffering simply because they believe in Jesus. Anyone have ideas on other ways to help them??
The video titled “Imam a Christian” Is absolutely incredible.
This is how we’re supposed to be living. Not afraid of one that can take away our lives, but fearing the One which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matt 10:28)
Hey, that’s a clever way of thinking about it.
Christians are persecuted and martyred across the world today. They have been through the years, even to the point of death or death of their family members. We need to help our brothers and sisters in Christ through prayer, by helping them and their families. Yeshua said that whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward (Matt. 10:42)
Unbelievable what unfairness and injustice is going on around the world. Jesus loves people and Hos followers love people but there is so much hate in the world! Thank God for His mercy and His Spirit.
So difficult to see people suffering for something we take for granted. These people were imprisoned for the best years of their lives – 20 – 40 years old. Most women would have past their child bearing years and would never be able to get that time back. BUT they never gave up on JESUS!
Some of these videos are so difficult to watch but being uncomfortable stirs up the desire in me to pray for and seriously do something about all the persecution and injustices I see and hear about. Thanks for reminding me about that which is easy to forget.
Watching the video titled “Victoria” is so powerful! The story of Nigerian Christians being shot at during a church meeting reminded me of the amazing freedoms we have in Canada! I was also brought to tears at the part where Victoria said that her father was not actuallydead, but that they would meet again one day in Heaven. Her testimony reminded me about how much we need to pray for not only the families of those persecuted, but also more importantly for the souls of the persecutors. They need the love, healing and forgiveness of Jesus!
Satan hates 3 things: Bible, Christians & Israelites or some call Jewish. So Satan uses Muslims, the Liberal Media, Buddhists, Atheists, etc to speak against and kill Christians, Jewish and always against the Bible. Wikipedia extract, Persecution of Christians can be traced historically based on the biblical account of Jesus in the first century of the Christian era to the present time. Early Christians were persecuted for their faith at the hands of both Jews from whose religion Christianity arose and the Romans who controlled much of the land across which early Christianity was distributed. Early in the fourth century, the religion was legalized by the Edict of Milan, and it eventually became the State church of the Roman Empire. Christian missionaries as well as converts to Christianity have been the targets of persecution ever since the emergence of Christianity, sometimes to the point of being martyred for their faith. In the 20th century, Christians have been persecuted by various groups, including the Islamic Ottoman Empire in the form of the Armenian Genocide, Assyrian Genocide and Greek Genocide, as well as atheistic states such as the Soviet Union and North Korea. During World War II members of some Christian churches were persecuted in Nazi Germany for resisting Nazi ideology. In more recent times the persecution of Christians has increased in India according to International Christian Concern. The Christian missionary organization Open Doors (UK) estimates 100 million Christians face persecution, particularly in Muslim-majority countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
