 Brother Yun - Heavenly Man by Brother Yun

Topic: Underground Church
Description: Brother Yun speaking at Great St Mary's Church, Cambridge. His account of persecution, escape but most of all his faith inspires obedience to following God. On 26th February 2004, 1500 people packed out Great St Mary's Church to hear the remarkable testimony of Brother Yun and Brother Peter Xu. Brother Yun is one of China's house church leaders, a man who despite his relative youth has suffered prolonged torture and imprisionment for his faith. Instead of focusing on the many miracles or experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to emphasize the character and beauty of Jesus. His story was told in the best selling Christian book of 2003 - The Heavenly Man by Paul Hattaway. Accompanying Brother Yun was Peter Xu, a house church leader who was imprisoned with Brother Yun in 1997 in Zhengzhou Number One maximum security prison, when Brother Yun had a miraculous escape.

 Really Encouraging!!! 
Brother Yun, thank you for sharing your amazing testimony!! I am really being encourage by your testimony. By reading your book of Heavenly Man, its strengthen my spirit to keep obey and put my trust on Jesus whenever I facing storm. May God Jesus Christ bring you to glory after glory and blessing after blessing. Amen!!

 Passionate Message, Repeats Yun's Book 
This is a message that Brother Yun gives in Chinese and is interpreted into English. I came at this message from the perspective of having read Yun's book The Heavenly Man and being familiar with the Back to Jerusalem concept. If you have done the same, this message will contain nothing new. I found it interesting to hear Yun's speaking or preaching style and to take note of what he chose to emphasize from all his experiences. However, the listener will have no doubt that Yun's heart is fully behind his message and he has a burden for God, for China, and for Christians everywhere. In short, if you are seeking to hear Yun speak, this message will fit the bill, but if you are seeking something beyond what you can read in the books, this contains mostly identical accounts.

Bro. Charles Finney said there are two things that will put our the fire of the Spirit in our lives . . . 1.) Becoming complacent with where we are in the Lord . . . and 2.) A lack of persecution! Our burning brethren in CHINA don't suffer from either of these problems. We, however, certainly do! WHERE'S THE FIRE!!!!!

 Eye Opener 
I became more aware of the Chinese church through a magazine interview with Bro. Denny Kenaston and Bro. Ren and Bro. ?. The answers and theology were so clear and pure I looked for audio and found this which was excellent. I was telling a bro. about this and he gave me the book Heavenly Man....WOW. Since then I ordered from Chinasoul a 4 hr. video The Cross- Jesus in China which includes about the Canaan Hymns. The video can be downloaded or viewed from their website. These aren't perfect people, just purified. Having faces and testimonies helps us better pray for the persecuted church.

A heart-moving message, full of passion and fire. May God touch the world through the testimonies of Bro Xu and Bro Yun. It's amazing to know that there are about a 100 million evangelical Christians in the underground church in China. How much suffering and persecution our brothers and sisters in China are enduring! And how cold and formal and heartless our Christian life is compared to theirs! May God give me a burden to pray for the church in China and for the testimonies of his saints who have come through fire!
