Nigerian Christians: ‘Our Blood Will Speak about Christ’

What Finger News

In Nigeria, Christians in the Muslim-majority North have been the targets of relentless deadly attacks by Islamic extremists.

More than 200 pastors in the Northeastern Borno state have either fled, closed their churches, or have been murdered by the militant Islamic group Boko Haram.

Christian leaders who remain have committed to fasting and praying for the region one week each month.

“We have to stay and uphold the name of Christ in this state,” one pastor named James told the international ministry Open Doors.

“We are willing to pay the price for our calling. We don’t only share the Gospel when things are rosy,” he continued. “It is to be done in every situation. Hunger and want will never discourage us. Swords and guns, even the roar of the devil, will only encourage us to stand first for Christ.”

“If we die, our blood will speak about Christ to our killers,” he said.

“We are seeking the face of God in this situation,” Rev. Pona, whose full name we cannot reveal for security purposes, told Open Doors. “Brethren are being killed all over the state. Thousands of homes have been destroyed. Our churches have not been spared. We are being struck from every direction. Only Christ can deliver us from this trial.”

About VOICE OF THE PERSECUTED

Our voices cry out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves, and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!

  1. My prayers are with the Nigerian Christians. We live in a country when the biggest decision is what channel to watch that night on television. Nigerians are making the decision to face torture and death for Christ and they do so willingly hoping that their death will show Christ to their lost tormentors.I am humbled. It just brings me to tears.
