Iran delaying decision on fate of Christian pastor

Court rules verdict won't come for another year

An Iranian court has said it will delay a final verdict on the case of imprisoned Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani for a year.

Previous reports said that Nadarkhani's case – he's accused of leaving Islam and could be sentenced to death – would be decided in mid-December by Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Sayyed Khameini. Khameini has not announced a decision.

Pastor Nadakhani was arrested and convicted of apostasy in 2009 for allegedly leaving Islam, a charge he denied by saying that he was never a Muslim.

International Christian Concern's Aidan Clay says the delay in a decision is a careful but deliberate decision by Iran's judiciary.

"Recent reports indicate that the presiding judge over Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's case was ordered by the head of the judiciary to postpone the announcement of Youcef's verdict for another year, meaning Youcef will remain in prison," Clay said.

Clay adds that even a month ago, the Iranians were promising a decision by the middle of this month.

"Only a month ago, the court said it would make a decision by mid-December. The court had handed the decision over to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, following fervent international pressure in October. Whether or not Khamenei made a decision is not known, but the verdict that was expected to be announced in the coming days has instead been put off once again," Clay said.

Clay believes the real reason for the delay is that the Iranians are hoping human rights groups will forget about the Iranian pastor.

"Undoubtedly, authorities are hoping that the international community will forget about Youcef altogether. However, up until now, that has not been the case as international attention continues to grow. On December 9, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for Youcef’s immediate and unconditional release," Clay said.

"Her statement followed the demands of others, including Britain, Canada, France, Mexico, and a European Parliament resolution. Groups like the ACLJ have done an outstanding job by acquiring hundreds of thousands of signatures on a petition to raise awareness of Youcef’s plight," Clay said.

"There is no doubt that the considerable amount of attention on the case has played a vital role in keeping Youcef alive," Clay said.

Clay believes the Iranians will use the time to accomplish their main objective – to get the pastor to deny his faith.

"Iranian authorities will clearly use the lengthened imprisonment and the extensive amount of pressure it entitles to attempt to persuade Youcef to recant his Christian faith," Clay said.

Sociality  have level us all out  :

Common people and Preachers

Owners and Workers alike

Riches People and No bodies alike

Buyer and Sellers

Bankers and Debtors and Beggars alike

The haves and have -nots alike

Lenders and Borrowers

 

We are finding ourselves saying  like King Solomon  Vanity !

Sometimes people are not immediately punished for the bad things they do. Their punishment is slow to come, and that makes other people want to do bad things too.

A sinner might do a hundred evil things and still live a long time. But I know that it is still better to obey and respect God.  Evil people don’t respect God, so they will not get good things or live long lives. Their lives will not be like the shadows that become longer and longer as the sun goes down. There is something else that happens on earth that does not seem fair. Bad things should happen to bad people, and good things should happen to good people. But sometimes bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. This is not fair.

Just like when you was a slaves to this system of this world. God said I will break the chains that hold them. I will save them from the powerful hands of those who made them slaves. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

God gave you a divorce from the world system of  life.  But you decide to take the back door.  You became a Sharecropper.  You went to work for someone else Business . Some went to the  state / city Government jobs.  You receive your portion of the harvest. But soon found out it couldn’t  met you needs. So you had to go to college and get a degree . Only to find out that your new job was build on a foundation of sinking sand.  It left you with creditor calling you and bills.  Only thing you find yourself doing is ask for extend of credit and that come with restriction on your life. Now you are in a perpetual cycle of debt.

God saying   I’m  the One comforting you.  What are you afraid of  or who  ?  Some man or woman who’ll soon be dead ?  Some poor wretch destined for dust ?  You’ve  forgotten me, God, who made you,  and  I  sent my only beloved son Jesus !  

Jesus said I am come that they might have Life and that they might have it

More Abundantly !

This Christmas make a commit to  Live  Jesus  Way of  Life Style  !

Go  Create a BUSINESS  of  Your Own !  No  More Sharecropper Life Style for You !

                               You  Are  A  King `s  Child  !
