"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. (Matthew 24:9)."
In eastern Islamic countries converting to Christianity could be a death sentence.
Hassan Hussein Mohammed wouldn't normally have admitted to being a Christian while attending mosque prayers. But he had to explain why his mind and tongue froze last month when told to lead prayers at a mosque in Mogotio, they said.
Upon admitting his faith in the true Jesus Christ, he was beaten, arrested without charges and taken to an unknown location. Hassan sent to Mogotio for an internship, training to become a Muslim leader, instead, found Jesus Christ.
"Mohammed met people from a church in the town in Baringo County. Members of a King’s Outreach Church in Mogotio spoke with him about Jesus, and on April 10 he met with church leaders."
“I have just come and want to be prayed for to be a follower of Jesus,” Mohammed told them."Pastor Victor Kurui prayed for him, and Mohammed received Christ, they said.
Mohammed later went to the mosque to hurriedly gather his belongings, but elders commanded he stay and lead evening prayers. After some hesitation, he agreed. A voice within, he later told church leaders, told him not to lead the supplication, and when he tried to say them his mind blanked. He then admitted that he had accepted “Isa,” Jesus.
Those in the mosque beat him with a blunt object, kicked him and struck him until he was unconscious, he told church leaders. When he regained consciousness a few minutes later, he said, “I am ready to die for Isa, and I forgive you for what you have done to me,” the church leaders told Morning Star News."
"A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. (Psalm 102:1)."
The righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright.
"Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered.
Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues.
You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.
They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.
