The empire strikes back

Multi cultural hands

Prayer moves mountains – literally. The prayers of Gods people around the world,  lifted to heaven by faith in Jesus, have arrived in heavens courts, and the empire is striking back!

Two lawyers, one a professor of law, who act on behalf of persecuted people, met with Masih Das and Sarita in custody and discovered huge irregularities in the way the investigation into the murder had happened. It was obvious that the police have been under pressure from political and religious groups to try and pin something on Masih Das and Sarita, and so have intimidated the children in custody to say things they never meant, by putting words into their mouths. Words totally inconsistent with the reality of what happened.

The application for bail will now go in on Monday unopposed, and hopefully they will be released this week before we have to leave. Praise God!

Even better, the lawyers are going to bring charges of  incompetence and corruption against the officers involved , being leant on by the religious fanatics. They have some compelling evidence. Some hidden stuff is going to come out into the light.

Our  prayers all the way along have been that Masih Das and Sarita would be completely exonerated and that their good reputation be untarnished. The tidal wave of evil unleashed on them is being pushed back. Just like when Joshua led the people across the River Jordan when it was in flood mode. In Joshua 3v16 it says that as soon as the priests stepped into the river  the water piled up , far upstream. The people walked across on dry ground! Over five million of them.

It goes onto say that the news of this spread all along the Mediterranean. The enemies of Gods people , ‘became afraid and lost their courage ‘ (Joshua 5v1). Keep praying! Keep believing this is going to be a ground taking victory for Gods persecuted and down trodden people. When God acts,  obstacles become highways for His name to be talked about in whole regions. River beds become main roads for Gods people to walk across with joy and wonder.

We could be about to see a wonder take place. There is still a long way to go but take heart and keep that water piled up.

In front of the policemen guarding them, Sarita’s mother was able to give to each of them a beautiful carved olive wood heart from Bethlehem, given to us from friends who work in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. The smile that lit their faces was memorable. They knew tangibly that they had brothers and sisters around the world standing with them . They were not alone, not forgotten. As they were led away to their prison cell they knew and felt they were loved. Their heads were high.

Lets pray this through to complete victory

    AMAZING! Will keep praying total victory through to the end for God’s glory & for the truth to come out & all things to be exposed by God’s light. He is the creator of all things & Jesus upholds the whole universe by the power of His word. Who can stand against HIM?

    Shalom, Shirley xx

    Dear Les & Ann

    What wonderful encouragement to continue to pray in a seemingly hopeless situation! Hallelujah. My prayer have been centred on the local police.

  3. Amen. I was praying for them on Saturday mid morning and I kept hearing that the truth will set them free. And I know it comes from scripture but not in that way but just that the literal revealing of the truth of what really happened will set them free. Thank you God for bringing these people who have the wisdom and skill to bring the real truth of the situation to light. He will get all the glory x
