July 03, Joined to the Lord

If you have never been shocked by the Bible, you have probably never really read it, because the Bible says some extremely shocking things. Take 1 Corinthians 6:16, for example:

July 02, United with God

Co-opt and Control or Remove

Ian Johnson, writing in Foreign Affairs, defined the direction of Chinese government policy to the church in China in a way that should be helpful to all those who pray for China’s church. He essentially made three points.

Arrests in China

On December 9th 2018, Chinese security officials shut down Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu, arresting Pastor Wang Yi and his wife Jiang Rong, as well as several elders and 100 church members. Some have since been released, but the pastor and elders have not been freed (at the time of writing).

China and the Bible, The Word of God

Paul, writing in 2 Timothy 4:1-2, makes a very interesting emphasis to his young team member, Timothy - especially since “this is the final chapter of Paul’s final letter.” Paul’s emphasis is on the Bible, the Word of God.

China’s New Status In The World Today.

Recently two high profile international events took place which created two very different responses from other nations. These responses provide an interesting glimpse into China’s unique status in the world today.

China And The Roman Catholic Church

On September 22nd 2018 the Vatican announced that it had reached a provisional agreement with the Chinese government concerning the relationship between the Catholic church and the Chinese state. The agreement has not yet been finalised, so there are some details that are not yet ironed out. Read more...

Two Giants in China

“Alibaba and Tencent: Disrupting China, Dozens of Industries at a Time” was the title of an article by Stratfor. It is not difficult to understand the reason for the title. Traditionally the two companies are seen as internet companies “involved in social media, e-commerce, streaming media and mobile payments”. But they are in fact much more than that.

A New “Weapon” For China

China’s economic growth has created new ways of influencing other nations, both those who are friendly and those who to one degree or another are considered ‘hostile' by China. Stratfor recently analysed one specific area where this influence will be especially effective for China – tourism.

China’s Plan to 'Sinicize' Religions

One of the most important changes governing religious policy in China is the 2017-18 emphasis on the “sinicization” of religions in China. Sinicization is defined as “a process intended to shape religious traditions and doctrine to better conform with Chinese society and CCP objectives.” Simply put, that means making religions agree and...

Two Huge Events For The Church In China

“Having settled into what was thought to be a ‘new normal’, it seems that the religious community in China (both Chinese and foreign) must now adjust to a ‘new, new normal’.” (Joann Pittman, ChinaSource Blog, May 2018). Though the facts of what Pittman wrote will be familiar to many who pray for China through Antioch missions, her analysis is very helpful.

Prayer Focus 13/05/2018 - 19/05/2018

This Week: Croatia, Cambodia, India, East Africa, Czech Republic, France, and Turkey.

Bibles in China in 2018

In a ChinaSource article posted in early April 2018, Joann Pittman wrote helpfully to define what is the actual position relating to the sale of Bibles in China. The following is a summary of her comments:

Religious Freedom In China?

In 1982 I had my first opportunity to travel into China. During that visit I had the huge privilege of meeting for two nights with a house church leader in Shanghai. That was in many ways a defining time for Derek Prince Ministries’ work in China. This brother and his wife shared with me the needs of the church at the time in China which defined our responses in the years to come.

The Roman Catholic Church In China

Recently there have been a number of reports about a possible rapprochement between the Vatican and China. The Holy See has been in negotiations for several years with the Chinese Communist Party and is now believed to be close to an agreement over the appointment of bishops in China. That agreement says...

China Prayer Points for 2018

The Mainland Chinese magazine China Christian Daily ran an article in January 2018 that serves as a very helpful prayer guide for those who are burdened to pray for China in 2018.

Dealing With Cheating Spouses In China

Recently the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) ran an article which began: “A new industry has emerged in China, helping husbands and wives to separate their unfaithful spouses from their lovers. It's called ‘Mistress Dispelling’, in which clients often pay tens of thousands of dollars to...

The Source of China’s Massive Wealth

Perhaps you have wondered how China pays for all this massive investment expenditure. Where does all that money come from? Stratfor recently offered one explanation which is in plain view of the whole world, and yet little noticed. China, the article stated, has 35 cities whose economies are as big as whole countries in Asia and Europe and elsewhere!

Five Pictures Of China Today, November 2017

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) published on its website an article around the time of the 19th party Congress which pointed out some revealing statistics concerning China. The article was not about China’s politics, but rather gave insights into the ordinary Chinese and their lives today. It contained five graphs with...

Quick Money Or Quick Disaster?, October 2017

"It's almost an epidemic, especially in rural areas," saId one financial expert. She was referring to pyramid schemes (known in Chinese as ‘chain selling’), “which are flourishing in parts of China where education levels are low.

A Hidden Danger Of War?, September 2017

High atop the Doklam Plateau, Indian and Chinese forces were locked in a standoff. This is an area around Sikkim and Bhuttan in the region of North India near Nepal, which is described as “the roof of the world”. It is therefore out of sight and perhaps out of mind, but carries dangers in respect of the relationship of the two most populous nations in the world.

“Blue Whale”, August 2017

Recently, reports speak of the “death game” Blue Whale, which has already caused many young people in Russia to commit suicide, and now has entered into China through social media. The game participants are mostly young people who are asked to complete 50 game assignments, such as...

2 Chinese Christians murdered in Pakistan, July 2017

At the time of writing there is some confusion regarding the deaths of two young Chinese in Pakistan. But this much is clear. Meng Li Si and Li Xinheng were abducted on May 24th in Quetta, the capital city of Baluchistan province in Pakistan. Pakistan authorities confirmed their deaths saying they had been abducted by the Islamic State.

One Belt, One Road, June 2017

Most people who keep up with China news would know of the existence of China’s One Belt One Road massive project. Fewer would be able to define what exactly it is.

A Mega-City Rising From Rice Fields, May 2017

“Until the start of this month (April 2017), no one had ever heard of Xiongan. Today, it is the most talked-about place in China. When the government announced on April 1st that it would create ‘Xiongan New Area’ as a metropolis from scratch, it immediately set off a frenzy.

Chinese in Namibia

Many Chinese are moving to Namibia to start a business there. As worldwide ministry we were requested for these people in Namibia.

Testimony from Pakistan

Special testimony from Catholic Church: "For the past two years, I observed four of our lay leaders growing in their character and spiritual gifts. I had a conversation with them in the presence of about 58 other leaders. They shared boldly that the transformation in their personal and ministry life is because of the sound Bible teachings of Derek Prince."
