If you were to meet my friend Saeed for only a moment you would immediately sense the grace and love of God that abounds in his heart. His kind gentle manner of getting to know you is more inviting than a warm room on a cold day. Of course Saeed is always more interested to get to know you than he is to tell you about himself. But when, and if, the time comes that you get to read the "Epistle of Saeed" (2Cor 3:2) be prepared to have your heart touched in a way you never expected. For here is a man whose encounter with Jesus is clearly seen by even a blind man. Once a devoted Muslim, now he is a man passionately in love with Lord Jesus Christ. After a nearly Saul of Tarsus encounter with the Lord, Saeed has become a fox with a firey tail in the fields of the enemy. His conversion has led to hundreds of home churches starting in Iran. But here is what you may or may not know: Saeed's captivity in one of the worst, most dangerous prisons in the world has become known around the world. Multiple millions of people across the globe now know the name "Saeed Abedini". The significance of this cannot be overstated because now two very different roads could lie ahead - which one will be the outcome is yet to be seen, but here are what I believe are the two possible paths for Saeed's future:
1). If Saeed continues to remain in this prison, I am sorry to say I do not believe he will make it out alive.
2). If he is delivered, I believe the world will become his pulpit as doors to share his testimony around the world will open. This has the potential to result in the salvation of a countless number of souls, including an unprecedented number of Muslims who will come to know the love of God in Christ.
This is an UNPRECEDENTED time in history! We have an UNPRECEDENTED opportunity to have millions of people, many whom are Muslims that have NEVER even one time heard the gospel, to hear the same life saving message that Saeed heard and be saved!
But this WILL NOT HAPPEN if Saeed is not delivered from prison. So here is what YOU must do, ...turn off the tv, get off Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., and get alone with God and cry out on Saeed's behalf. Knock! Ask! Pray! We must storm heaven with our prayers till the prison doors open. We are HORRIBLY mistaken if we think this is solely about the life of one man and his family! This is about the souls the hundreds of thousands of people whose eternities will be changed forever if this ONE man is released from prison! Maybe you won't skip a meal or a tv show or a ballgame for one man and his family, but will you skip it for the staggering number of souls whose eternity will forever be changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ as testified to by His suffering servant, Pastor Saeed Abedini?
I hope you will join me storm heaven with your prayers for Saeed.
