One of the signs Jesus said will occur before His return, “…And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” ( Mt.24:9; Mk.13:9-13; Lk.21:12-19) and He says, “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be excedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven…” (Matthew 5:11-12)
“Maya, the second child of Meriam Ibrahim and Daniel Wani was born earlier this week in a prison clinic, where her mother awaits execution for refusing to renounce Christianity. Maya and her 20-month-old brother, Martin, will remain in prison with their mother until she is weaned. Then, she and her brother will become orphans if Sudan’s government carries out Meriam’s death sentence.” http://www.persecutionblog.com/2014/05/by-choosing-christ-her-children-will-be-orphans.html
Lord God, please give Meriam and her family Your peace that passes all understanding and Your strength to endure. Thank You, Jesus.
