Singing Through Interrogation – March 2020

Psalm 9:1-2

Chinese officials from the Public Security Bureau invaded a Sunday School room at a church in early 2005.  They found 30 children inside and herded them into a van.  Despite the scary situation, one child began to sing.  In a few moments, all the children were singing.

Upon arrival at the police station, the children marched bravely into the interrogation room, still singing to the Lord.  The Chinese officers attempted to force the children to write: “I do not believe in Jesus”, telling them that they had to write it a hundred times before they would be released.  Instead, the children wrote: “I believe in Jesus today.  I will believe in Jesus tomorrow.  I will believe in Jesus forever!”

Exasperated, the officials called the children’s parents, some of whom renounced Christ.  However, one widow refused to deny Christ when she same to pick up her twin sons.  The officers threatened her, saying, “If you do not deny Jesus, we will not release your sons”.

She Replied, “I guess you will just have to keep them, because without Jesus, there would be no way for me to take care of them!”  The exasperated officials said, “Take your sons and go!”

Church, keep on singing and believing!!!
