Dear Friends, Rejoice with us. Asia Bibi is free!!! After 8 years in the solitary confinement of death row (more than 10 years in prison in Pakistan ), for refusing to renounce her faith in Jesus Christ, she has arrived in Canada; which is giving her asylum. She and her husband have been reunited with their daughters. Asia spent her years in deteriorating health and deplorable living conditions surviving by prayer and the presence of God, for refusing to deny Christ and convert to Islam. Several years ago, the governor of her province spoke out in support her and the injustice of her case and was then assassinated.
Millions of Pakistani Muslims wanted her hanged; our Father wanted her to live and testify of His love and faithfulness. He has humbled the mighty by His resurrection life and love in the weak and helpless.
1 Corinthians 1:26-31 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, hat no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption–that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”
To all our brothers and sisters who prayed with us for Asia, thank you for your faithfulness and prayers. To God be the Glory, He alone is worthy
2 Timothy 2:8-13 Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained. Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
Thanks to Asia who refused to quit on Jesus Christ our Lord. Your example inspires us to live abandoned to the cause of Christ. Praise God for His enduring faithfulness!!!
