EQUIP AND EMPOWER MORE SECRET BELIEVERS IN NORTH KOREA GOAL: $175,000 BY OCTOBER 29

Hostilities in the Korean peninsula have spiked higher than at any other time in the previous decade.

Even as I write, the world watches the lingering threat of war.

But what you don’t see or hear about, on the evening news, are the precious believers hidden in plain sight.

And through God’s protection and grace, we’ve expanded our underground network in North Korea to smuggle supplies and resources to strengthen untold numbers of secret believers.

It’s tedious work. And it’s dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, I can’t share many details in writing.

But I can share that the result is nothing short of a miracle—God is using these resources to strengthen His church and expand His Kingdom in North Korea.

Our partners on the ground report believers are being empowered to pass on their faith—even amidst the incredible risk!

And I believe God is calling us to do more…

That’s why we’ve stepped out in faith and have established a goal of raising $175,000 by October 29 to provide resources to Christians in North Korea that will equip them with everything they need to endure today’s uncertainty and stay strong in their faith.

  1. Bibles
  2. Emergency Food
  3. Medicines
  4. Safe Houses
  5. Training
  6. Other Critical Resources

And I’m turning to friends like you for help. This is about more than survival. It’s about igniting a spark of revival in one of the most oppressive areas on the planet.

We know that the spiritual battle always intensifies when God is doing something amazing.

But please don’t wait. Anything you can give now, God will use to strengthen and equip His people who refuse to worship Kim Jong-un and who risk everything to follow Christ.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

In Christ,

Dr. David Curry

Jewish, Muslim and Christian Leaders call for Greater Religious Tolerance in U.S., World


Jewish, Muslim and Christian leaders gathered in Los Angeles at the Museum of Tolerance Wednesday to discuss progress on religious freedom in the Arab world. They also called for more religious tolerance in the world and in the U.S.

The gathering included a morning news conference and also an evening ceremony at which the leaders will release publicly for the first time a document known as the “Bahrain Declaration for Religious Tolerance.

King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the king of Bahrain wrote the document. According to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a global human rights organization co-sponsoring the event, the declaration is the first of its kind written by an Arab Head of State…. read more

opinion: So it begins the cry for a one world religion. Believer’s in Christ Jesus should not accept tolerance. What does tolerance mean — 1. tolerating or being tolerant, esp. of views, beliefs, practices, etc. of others that differ from one’s own, 2. freedom from bigotry or prejudice The bible clearly talks about whom you are going to serve, how God is a jealous God, and you cannot serve God and mammon.

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

There are many more, we hope you read them for yourselves, God Bless

Who Will Rid Us of These Christians? They’ve Done Something Else Now.


If you believe in the “imaginary sky god” you are treated with utter contempt by the left these days. Your Jesus is a bigot unless he is not the real Jesus and you people are contemptible bigots. In Georgia, even the Republicans hate you and are planning on revising adoption laws to prohibit Christians from helping the state place children in adoption and foster families. You would think Christians would learn from all of this, but instead they have gone and done something even more ridiculous to highlight just how absurd they are.

Christians across America have contributed more personal funds and more sweat equity than any other group in organized efforts helping the people of Texas and now Florida and Georgia due to Harvey and Irma. In fact, Christian non-profits like the North American Mission Board, Salvation Army, and Samaritan’s Purse have been more active in helping FEMA than the Red Cross or other secular non-profits. In fact, in Miami, the Red Cross did not even show up to run shelters that were designated as Red Cross shelters…. read more

CHRISTIANS LIVING AMID JIHADIST ACTIVITY IN MALI


August 14, eight people were killed in Mali during two separate attacks, seven at the UN mission in the ancient city of Timbuktu and one in Douenza, 130 miles to the south.

Militants who shot and killed 18 people at a restaurant in Burkina Faso’s capital the same day most likely came from Mali, a security source in Ouagadougou told the AFP news source on Wednesday. “Looking at the tactics of the assailants, their physical traits, they probably came from northern Mali or closer to the border” with Burkina Faso, an army officer said on condition of anonymity. No group has so far claimed responsibility, but Burkina Faso has witnessed a string of such attacks…. read more

From Franklin Graham to Frank Amedia, Intercessors Are Warring Against Hurricane Harvey


A gas pump is covered with an out-of-service message as fuel ran out ahead of Hurricane Harvey's arrival near the Texas coastal area, in Houston, Texas.

It threatens to be the worst storm in more than a decade, with expected damage expected to rival if not exceed Hurricane Katrina.

But Christians don’t view this storm through the world’s eyes. Rather, they’re commanding it to dissipate in the name of Jesus.

Here’s what they’re saying:

Franklin Graham, evangelist and president of Samaritan’s Purse:

Hurricane Harvey is expected to bring catastrophic flooding and severe storm damage to the coast of Texas. As we wait for the storm to hit, we are positioning supplies and planning to bring immediate assistance to affected families. Most importantly, we are praying for God’s protection for those in the storm’s path…. read more

CNN Publishes Fake Hate List – Targeting Well-Known Christian Groups


Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared.

The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute.

American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.”

Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.”

“Liberty Counsel is not a hate group,” he said. “The false ‘hate’ label is very damaging to our reputation and is a safety risk to our staff. Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry, and hates no one.”… read more

Christian Hungary on Collision Course with European Union’s Islamic ‘Blackmail’


BUDAPEST – In a time when most of Europe is in the grips of atheism, there is a nation where Christianity seems to not only be holding its own but some say is thriving.

Imagine a government that is unabashedly Christian, that thinks Christian values are worth defending, that wants to protect and even nourish the family. Welcome to Hungary.

A Christian Nation

Hungary’s constitution is explicitly Christian and says that marriage is between one man and one woman and that life begins at conception. It even includes the phrase, “God bless the Hungarians.”… read more
