GOLAN HEIGHTS, Israel, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- We know the statistics—we've heard them in health class, seen them on television, and read them in the news. If we forget, a scroll through Twitter will quickly remind us: at least one in four women have been sexually assaulted in their lifetimes, and at least one in six men. These are just the reported cases. This is just what we know.
These are U.S. statistics, and they're terrible. But they're exponentially higher in Iran.
Almost no woman in Iran reaches adulthood without first experiencing profound abuse.
Jesus sees every blade of grass in the field and knows exactly how many hairs are on your head. And He knows exactly how many people have been abused, assaulted, and taken advantage of. He knows where they were, who did it to them, and what the trauma has done to them ever since. And He is the "avenger of all such things" (1 Thessalonians 4:6).
"THE LORD IS THE AVENGER OF ALL SUCH THINGS."
What does justice look like for these crimes? How does the slaughtered and resurrected Messiah respond to systemic sexual assault?
When you hear the testimonies of the people leading the charge as the Gospel sweeps through and takes root in Iran, it may surprise you to hear the move is predominantly led by women. That is unusual—particularly for the Islamic Republic of Iran. But what will perhaps impact you more is what the Lord has done for these women who've been beaten, oppressed, raped, and silenced. What has He done—and what will He do—to avenge all these things?
"THE IRANIAN REGIME IS LOSING CONTROL OF THE IRANIAN PEOPLE TO A SWEEPING MOVEMENT OF WOMEN WHO FOLLOW ISRAEL'S MESSIAH."
Discover the justice of Jesus as He delivers captives held in the tightest clutches of a regime founded on demonic doctrine, raised in a culture saturated in seventh-century Mohammedan mores, and hear directly from them how He has healed their pain, delivered them from their trauma, and restored their bodies, souls, and minds. Indeed, "they overcame by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives unto death" (Revelation 12:11).
The persecuted church of Iran is a persevering church. Listen to the testimonies carrying the life and light of Jesus into one of the darkest regimes on earth and discover the power of Jesus to avenge the worst things and set victims and perpetrators alike free for the best thing: Himself.
