LISTEN NOW! (Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM!) The days that we are living in are truly interesting times as we are seeing prophecy being fulfilled at such a rapid rate. It appears that we are on the edge of war with North Korea. Presently, we have two aircraft carriers that are heading to the South China Sea. As the New York Times is reporting, the United States is wasting no time preparing their defenses against a possible North Korean missile attack, as they have successfully test fired a defense system that would be able to shoot down an incoming nuclear missile.
According to the Christian Post, “Prior to the Communist takeover, the capital city of Pyongyang used to be known as the ‘Jerusalem of the East,'” he continued. “In North Korea, Christianity was once a way of life with two churches on the same street corner [being] a common sight.” All of this began to change when a radical decision was made. “It was in 1962 that then-leader Kim Il-sung told the regime’s security agency that “we cannot move toward a common society with religious people…That is why we have to put on trial and punish those who hold positions of Deacon or higher in Protestant or Catholic churches”.
As Amnesty International UK reveals through interviews and testimonies, what is happening in North Korea, is quite shocking. Kim Young-Soon spent 9 years in the political prison camp, Yodok. “From sunrise to sunset, you work. There are no set working hours. You get up at 3:30 am to report for work at 4:30 am and then you work until dark.” Jihyun Park was sent to a labor camp after she fled North Korea, but was later caught in China. She shares how pregnant women are forced to work. “Pregnant women get sent to labor camps to carry loads up and down the hills which cause miscarriages.”
