TORTURED & IMPRISONED PASTOR Saeed Speaks of His 3 Years of Abuse by Iran’s Government; all Due to Him Loving the Iranian People in a network of House Churches in Iran; ‘if you renounce Jesus as your Savior, as the Son of God, we’ll let you go!’ He says they told him
So many prayers and petitions have been lifted up and signed throughout the Body of Christ as a response to Pastor Saeed Abedini’s imprisonment in Iran. After more than three years he has finally been released. Jay Sekulow, with the ACLJ, and Franklin Graham have spearheaded so much in order to bring Saeed back home safe. With compassionate hugs and eager embraces, Saeed’s parents see him and urgently embrace him just seconds after he steps off the plane in Asheville, North Carolina.
Saeed later sat down with FOX News in an exclusive interview about his time in captivity. Of all the time that Pastor Saeed was in captivity, the most memorable memory for his was when he was in court, standing before an Iranian judge. When the judge questioned his reason for being sentenced, Saeed responded with his work in the ministry. He was surprised when the judge told him why he was arrested. “You are here because you want to use Christianity to remove government…you guys are using Christianity to remove the government.” Even after Saeed pressed that that was not what he was doing, the judge quickly ordered him to be taken away. This is such an important truth.
In solitary confinement for more than 60 days, he was in the same room with United State Marine, Amir Hekmati. Seeing this Marine in this state was very heartbreaking with him. Saeed shares how he passed the time by simply praying, ‘Each day hours and hours. Sometimes more than 20 hours. I just prayed and prayed. It was wonderful time with the Lord.’ Other encounters and memories of his captivity were not enjoyable as he recounts the interrogation and beatings that he suffered.
Watch the full interview to hear him talk personally about what he witnessed and endured, the unforgettable moment of embracing his family for the first time upon his release, and so much more.

2016 Year of Turning Tides; Enemy Coming in Like a Flood; Supernatural Victories; Angel Armies Released; Flood of Violence satan Wants to Unleash in Parts of U.S. & World; Prayer Will Prevent. Prophet Cindy Jacobs Shares Prophetic Word for 2016 From the Prophetic Round Table
There have been many discussions talked about regarding what will take place during this year. After a round table gathering of prophets they all shared about what the Lord has been revealing to them. Cindy Jacobs has now released what was gathered in that round table meeting. She squarely sets the tone to what is to take place with these opening words, “2016: The Year the Tide Turns”.
Many have been fighting repeated attacks from the enemy that seem to never end. Sometimes it appears like the enemy comes in like a flood. She gives a powerful perspective to have in these moments. “Now don’t be surprised if the enemy comes in like a flood. He’s just doing his evil job. I mean he’s gonna be true to his nature. He’s mean, he’s the father of lies, he hates you, don’t think he’s ever going to like you…When the enemy comes in like a flood, get excited cause something supernatural is getting ready to happen. The Spirit of the Lord WILL, not might, raise up a standard against him!” This is very encouraging to remember as these moments will come.
We have heard many repeated reports about the acts of terrorism that are happening and increasing all throughout the world. God is making known His plans as well. “This is a year when angel armies are being released to see the purposes of God revealed.” In the awareness of what is happening regarding the economies of the world she continues to talk about what can take place. “There is a flood of violence Satan wants to unleash in many parts of the U.S. and the world. But, the angel armies of God are waiting to restrain them if God’s people will do their part in standing in the gap.” This is so encouraging! There is a part that God wants us to take part in. We must do what God is calling us to do.
These are very exciting words and truths about what God is going to do and what He has called us to be a part of. We have a part to play. The only thing the Devil can do is lie to you and tell you that you’ve lost before the battle is even over yet. Don’t give in to those lies and give up hope now. God is for YOU! Be greatly stirred and encouraged as you hear more about what God has planned for this year, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: OPEC, financial shaking, terrorism, and hope.

Franklin Graham and Daughter Cissie Graham Lynch on 7 Day Tour: Part 1 – Arriving in Israel
Franklin Graham is a man that is extensively versed in the truths of the Biblical land of Israel. After traveling there many times with others, this is the first time he is able to take a historic trip to the Holy Land with his daughter, Cissie Lynch Graham. Her words reveal the impacting experience this is having. “I always knew a trip like this would be special. But actually being here; walking the stone streets and seeing the historic hillsides of Jerusalem, it exceeds every expectation.” She continues, “The Bible stories I’ve heard and the verses I’ve memorized, they all come to life here in the Holy Land.”
Taking a trip like this with your daughter for one last moment before she has her first child strikes a memory of how Greg surprised his young daughter for a lobster lunch on the Palafox Pier for her 25th birthday.
