Present Truth ministries just reported apostacy charges against condemned Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani have been dropped. It appears the Iranian authorities will charge him under endangering national security. Observers fear that Iran is looking for a way to either imprison Youcef for an indefinite length of time. Or more than likely look for a ligitimate way to execute him without calling attention to the fact he is a ChristIan.The only thing is Youcef was arrested and charged with apostacy. He was sentenced to death because of this. Actual court documents reflect this. Yet with so much attention focussed on Iran and his case it appears Iran is trying to sweep this under the rug and still justify an execution.Iran has gone on record as being opposed to the spread of the gospel and many church leaders and members have been arrested. Now to justify these arrests Iran will charge the believers with endangering national security. Observers fear to justify future executions. But despite the persecution the church of Iran continues to grow. Many Persians are coming to faith and life in Jesus.Saints let us please remember Brother Youcef and other saints imprisoned in Iran. Let us keep them in our prayers. Let us also pray forthe spread of the gospel in Iran. For the demons there are getting quite nervous. God grant the cross triumph over the prince of Persia.May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward if his sufferings.Posted by Bearmaster.
