Glory to God forever and ever. Amen !
By God’s grace, underground house church of “Bibles for Mideast” (http://bibles4mideast.com) conducted 127 baptism services in Asia, Africa and Middle East Nations during 17 to 20 October, 2016. There were 1268 former Muslims received baptism according our Lord’s great commission.
In Saudi Arabia alone baptized 613 people in 72 places. Rest of the services held in other Mideast countries and some other countries of Asia and Africa.
Because of the police patrolling and the attack of the Islamic militants and terrorists we avoid sea shores for baptism services,” Pastor Paul, the Director of Bibles for Mideast said. “We held the service inside of our churches”, he added.
Almost churches arranged fiber or polythene water tanks and kept inside of the prayer hall and baptized the people.
“A mob of Islamic militants attacked the people of our church who were coming for the baptism service. But nobody knows what was happened. The people of the mob had a serious argument about something and they divided into two groups. Finally they fought each other and police came and arrested them all”. Pastor Hilal of a church reported.
Al Muthalib of another church reports, “Some militants smell about the baptism service of our church, and they gathered outside of the church wall with weapons and tried to enter Into the church compound by jumping over the gate. While jumping, one of them was seriously injured by an iron bar fix on the top of the gate. The cute point of the Iron bar went through his body. Others took him to the hospital at once”.
“Police came to search in our church. But pastor of the church got the information before police arrived. So church quickly finished the baptism service and kept the water tank upside down in a corner of the compound and put hollow bricks around and upon the tank. When police came they could not find any religious services and went back”, Evangelist Davood reports from his church.
Salmath share the experience of her church, “During the baptism service, there was a star light descending from above to the water tank and water was boiled with steam, but having no hot. Till the end of the baptism water was continuously boiling. All the people who were baptized in that water tank immediately anointed by the Holy Spirit”.
water boiling in the tank.
According the reports, these are just few. There are many more incidents in other places too.
“I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him” (Ps 34:4-8).
