Amid an ongoing surge in Christianity that developed as communism created a spiritual vacuum in people’s lives, China has launched a new crackdown, including rules introduced last month that further restrict the activities of unregistered house churches, according to a new report.
Christians in China have been repressed ever since the People’s Republic was created in 1949, with the government’s control of churches and imposition of the Communist Party’s atheistic values.
The state’s oppressive control prompted the rise of an underground house-church movement that, combined with the growth of registered churches, will make China’s Christian population the world’s largest by 2030, according to the new report by the Council on Foreign Relations… more
Psalm 72:4 May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, Save the children of the needy And crush the oppressor.
Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry The LORD sets the prisoners free.
Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
NEW YORK — Michael A. Walrond Jr., one of New York City’s most influential pastors who leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, is coming under fire online for telling his congregants that the belief that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is “insanity.”
Prior to preaching one of his sermons at First Corinthian just over two weeks ago, Walrond asked the congregation to recite their purpose statement, which he said “shape[s] our identity as a congregation.”
“We are an ever evolving community of visionaries, dreamers, and doers who have been called by God to live the lives we were created to live; commanded by God to love beyond the limits of our prejudices and commissioned by God to serve,” the statement read…. more
We could do an entire bible study on his one statement alone “There was a time when you would see people in the pulpit say, ‘well, if you don’t believe in Jesus you going to Hell. That’s insanity in many ways because that is not what Jesus even believes.”
Do you know what God says about this “if you don’t believe in Jesus you going to Hell“?
Here is what the bible says: John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 If you had known Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”…
We are definitely living in the last days and he is a false teacher! He is speaking against God and for God. If he feared God he would not be saying these words. Know who you are in Christ. Beware for more teachers will arise and a decision will need to be made on who you will serve, either man or God!
Joshua 24:15 CEV But if you don’t want to worship the LORD, then choose here and now! Will you worship the same idols your ancestors did? Or since you’re living on land that once belonged to the Amorites, maybe you’ll worship their gods. I won’t. My family and I are going to worship and obey the LORD!

Six pastors have been arrested and accused of “masterminding” a ploy to disobey the Rwandan government’s order to shut down over 700 churches in one province.
The pastors were alleged to have held “illegal meetings with bad intentions”, the BBC reported.
The churches in the central province of Kigali were ordered to halt operations until they meet building regulations, safety and hygiene standards, and pollution laws, according to South Africa-based News24.
Rwanda National Police spokesperson Theos Badage told journalists on Monday, 5 March, that the six “ring leaders” were aiming to mobilise other clergy against the authorities. It is not clear when the arrested clergymen will appear in court…. more
Chinese officials reportedly demolished a Christian church on Tuesday, detonating bombs to bring down the house of worship.
ChinaAid, an organization that monitors Christian persecution, reported that the Golden Lampstand Church in Linfen, China, is “serially persecuted” and noted that the unregistered church was privately paid for by its members for just over $2.6 million.
The organization is speculating that the order to destroy the church came from China’s top officials, seeing as military police have been under the government’s command since last year. Officials placed bombs beneath the structure to bring it down…. more
Understanding the Times 2017 Conference speaker Dr. Mark Hitchcock teaches that a prominent “sign of the time” is the raging apostasy in our seminaries and churches today. He gives examples of this and encourages believers to not give up.
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Dr. Ron Rhodes about his last book, “End-Times Super Trends: A Political, Economic, and Cultural Forecast of the Near-Term Prophetic Future.” Their discussion covers the reasons people will see the message of the last days as gloom and doom.
We have been told by a church that we teach doom and gloom. This is how L.W.H.M. started online bringing you bible studies, sermons, bible teaching, and news that lines up with the bible.

I will not use pronouns or any verbiage which may be called politically incorrect when I am referring to the heads of these so-called churches in Sweden.
I will refer to them as what they truly are: HERETICS and LIARS. I am sorry if I have offended any of my readers, but unfortunately “truth” is the new hate speech.
The gender neutral crowd are simply modern day feminists and homosexuals. Satan has brought them into “churches” to confront, confuse and corrupt the Word of God.
I am sick to death of those who would claim to belong to our Lord Jesus, yet hate His Word. I am also sick to death of the so-called “Social Gospel.”… read more
Three of the 26 victims in Sunday’s mass church shooting in Texas were a mother and two of her young daughters, though the woman’s two other children reportedly survived only because she sacrificed her life for them, a family friend has said.
Vonda Smith, a close friend of slain mother Joann Ward, told Fox News in an interview on Wednesday that she spoke with 9-year-old Rihanna, one of Ward’s children that survived the shooting at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs.
“The first thing she told me was that the reason she didn’t get shot like everybody else was because her momma threw her on the ground and told her to hide,” Smith said.
“As soon as she threw her on the ground, she scooped up her other three that were sitting next to her in a pew — Ryland, who’s 5, and Brooke, who’s 5, and Emily, who’s 7 — and she immediately covered them with her body. And that’s exactly how Rihanna described it.”…. read more
