China Places Harsh New Restrictions on Religion

Reuters reports that the new restrictions, which will go into effect Feb 2, 2018, also increase existing restrictions on unregistered religious groups - such as house churches - to include explicit bans on teaching about religion or going abroad to take part in training or meetings.

Additionally, the state will have further influence over religious education, with explicit provisions on the establishment and registration of religious colleges.

The document, passed by Premier Li Keqiang on Thursday, updates a version of rules put into place in 2005 to allow further regulation of religion and better reflect "profound" changes in China and the world. ...

"Here are judgments threatened against the enemies of the church, that have fought, or do fight, against Jerusalem; and the threatening of these judgments is in order to the preservation of the church in safety. Men that read and hear of these plagues will be afraid of fighting against Jerusalem, much more when these threatenings are fulfilled in some will others hear and fear. Those that fight against the city of God, and his people, will be found fighting against God, against whom none ever hardened his heart and prospered (v. 12): This shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; whoever they are, God will punish them for the affront done to him, and avenge Jerusalem upon them. 1. They shall waste away under grievous and languishing diseases: Their flesh shall consume away, and they shall be miserably emaciated, even while they stand on their feet, so that they shall be walking skeletons; nothing shall remain but skin and bones. The flesh which they pampered and indulged, and made provision for, when they were fed to the full with the spoils of God's people, shall now consume away, that it cannot be seen, and the bones that were not seen shall stick out, Job 33:21" (Matt Henry at Zech 14)

""Additionally, the state will have further influence over religious education, with explicit provisions on the establishment and registration of religious colleges.""

When Communism identifies a threat from the church its immediate reaction is to retaliate by taking more control over the people.

This is how Big Brother works. When the threat is observed by the Communist Party it treats the "menace" of stealing the minds of the people as an alternative influence over the lives of the masses. In other words they get scared of losing their followers.

Here in the west the party which tries to exert this style of oppression are the Lefty Liberals. They see the church as a threat to their moral relativism and call it discrimination.

These are Satan's tactics to overthrow the church.

It won't work since the gullible reprobates are those who respond to Satan's works and they are going to hell anyway.

Meanwhile the Elect will continue to heaven just as God planned it.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit"

Because of these ongoing abuses, the church is ranked 39th on Open Door USA's World Watch List of countries where Christians face the most persecution.
In an interview with The Gospel Herald, China Aid President Bob Fu shared how Chinese citizens are "thirsty" for the truth of the Gospel - particularly in light of the oppressive nature of the Communist government.
"The authentic love and compassion that is manifested in the lives of believers has been a major factor in the spread of the Gospel," he said, citing a Purdue University study that found the country is on course to become the world's "most Christian nation" by 2030.
"Under Communism, trust among the Chinese was destroyed," Fu revealed. "But the church was the opposite - Christians were the first ones to love those with disease and illnesses, the first ones to care about the elderly, the vulnerable, the children."
Despite ongoing persecution, Fu added that he is "more optimistic than ever" that the Gospel will continue to impact the country in a tremendous way.
"While we still feel the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters in China, we have seen the Good News spark the rapid growth of Christianity," he said. "We have seen a great revival - more and more believers are becoming actively involved. "...
