I was inspired to create this music video as a show of Solidarity for Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani and for his unwavering faith in Jesus Christ during intense persecution. This video also serves to honor the persecuted Christian church world-wide.
A Tribute to Persecuted Christians (song Manifesto)
It really is quite incredible. two weeks ago, a convicted murderer, Troy Davis was executed in the United States, and it seemed as though the entire British (and EU) Establishment arose to denounce the barbarism. Even Pope Benedict XVI appealed for clemency.
Yet, as it stands today, Iran is scheduled to hang a Christian pastor for 'apostasy', and for not renouncing his faith in Jesus Christ to covert to Islam. The collective silence from our scurvy politicians, trappist churchmen and hypocritical media is positively deafening.
For you Pastor Yousef and the tens of thousands of Christians persecuted world-wide. Be encouraged in your faith; knowing that many are praying for you -- mighty warrior.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:
“ For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
