Revival Needed Today
In our land, in our churches and in our ministers, men and women.

"I don’t wish to have a coward as a husband." -Sabina Wurmbrand

Listen below to how Richard Wurmbrand (suffered terribly for 14 years and founder of Voice of the Martyrs) stood up at the encouragement of his godly wife. Notice, he did not argue or reason with the politics of the day, he preached Christ. There is indeed much we can learn from this small bit of history that became so much more, even to this very day.

“The Communists convened a congress of all Christian bodies in our Parliament building. There were four thousand priests, pastors, and ministers of all denominations – and these men of God chose Joseph Stalin as honorary president of this congress. At the same time he was president of the World Movement of the Godless and a mass murderer of Christians. One after another, bishops and pastors arose and declared that communism and Christianity are fundamentally the same and could coexist. One minister after another said words of praise towards communism and assured the new government of the loyalty of the Church.

“My wife and I were present at this congress. Sabina told me, ‘Richard, stand up and wash away this shame from the face of Christ! They are spitting in His face.’ I said to her, ‘If I do so, you lose your husband.’ She replied, ‘I don’t wish to have a coward as a husband.’

“Then I arose and spoke to this congress, praising not the murderers of Christians, but Jesus Christ, stating that our loyalty is due first to Him. The speeches at the congress were broadcast and the whole country could hear proclaimed from the rostrum of the Communist Parliament the message of Christ! Afterward I had to pay for this, but it was worthwhile.”
