Christian Pastor in Iran Update 2/12

February 22, 2012

I have been following this story for 8 months and it seems like it made another turn.  Pastor Youcef has yet agreed to recant his faith in Jesus and has been issued a death sentence.  

Fox News reports the story Here

It begins with,”A trial court in Iran has issued its final verdict, ordering a Christian pastor to be put to death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity, according to sources close to the pastor and his legal team.” 

“Supporters fear Youcef Nadarkhani, a 34-year-old father of two who was arrested over two years ago on charges of apostasy, may now be executed at any time without prior warning, as death sentences in Iran may be carried out immediately or dragged out for years.”

It is both an honorable and biblical thing that pastor Youcef is doing in the name of our savior Jesus.  

Jesus said, “…. but whoever loses his life for me will find it.” (Matt: 16:25)

Please continue to pray for pastor Youcef and his family.  Jesus Christ be with them.
