house churchIran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, made many promises including tolerance towards non-Muslims.

Unfortunately, his Islamic regime is now infiltrating the Iranian Christians through social media and other various ways to damage the reputation of Iranian leaders including the house church movement.

Did you know there is a revival happening right now inside the country of Iran? 

According to Open Doors, there are presently 450,000 Christians (nearly 1% of the population of Iran).

One of the ways the Iranian regime is attempting to reach Christians in Iran is through numerous Facebook pages like this one (in Farsi): These pages are designed scare Christians in Iran from joining an Iranian House Church.

house church 2Here is a post from their Facebook page, which reads: Running House Church is Forbidden. The writer claims to be a house church leader and a Christian. He further explains how the government cracks down the cell groups, and why the house churches are no longer safe, and to stick to Satellite TV.

As Christians in the Western World, we often take advantage of our freedoms to worship wherever, however, whenever, and with whomever we please.

Let’s pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Iran who will not be persuaded by fraud, like this Facebook page. 

Let’s also pray against persecution and for their safety.

“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you” (Matthew 10:16-20, NIV).
