UPC Church in Liverpool England
by Editor George Duke
So many times because of what is happening in the USA and Uk over the Muslim Terrorist situation it is easy to overlook the evangelism of the Muslim people that has entered our nations. Yesterday we had the news of another act of Terror on the subway in London England where 29 people were injured from a Muslim terror act. As these news stories unfold we miss some of the great news events regarding the conversion of the Muslim people to Christ. Jesus told his deciples to go into all the world. The easiest place to begin is where you live.
Mark 16:15-16 (KJV) 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
As a former Missionary to the UK for 13 years the Muslims were not so prevalent but in recent years there has been a huge influx into our nations. Because of the violent acts we hear about Muslim Terrorist, it is easy to lose the “They need Jesus Christ and New Birth attitude” , and fail sometimes to see and feel their need for salvation. God has called all of us to be a witness to all souls no matter who or what they are or where they are from.
Jesus Christ is and always has been since his death, burial, and Resurrection reaching out to all that will receive him which includes as we sang as children, all the children of the world. The words of the song states that Jesus loves all the little children, all the children of the world, red and yellow black and white, they are precious in his sight , Jesus loves the little children of the world. We are all little children in God’s eyes.
Week after week I receive reports from the Uk where many are being filled with the Holy Spirit and being baptized in Jesus name and this news is wonderful. But what has captured my attention has been the UPC Church in Liverpool England Pastored by John & Sherri Hemus and their wonderful family. They have been seeing a lot of Iranians come to the Lord Jesus Christ and accept the Acts chapter 2 salvation. Yes many former Muslim Iranians are repenting of their sins, being baptized in Jesus name and God is filling them with his Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongue’s as his Spirit gives the utterance. Below is a recording from their church service.
Below is pictures of the church through the years. My memory of the church is the 1980 picture. I was blessed to be able to visit the church and donate to the church some chairs.
In your prayers please remember to pray for the Hemus family and do not forget Muslims can be delived also but God needs us to be his witness
