Protestants in Jiangxi Province’s Yugan county have been suffering CCP’s persecution for the past few years. Attacks renewed after coronavirus lockdown was lifted. by Tang Zhe Since the coronavirus lockdown measures were eased, local governments throughout the southeastern province of Jiangxi started intensifying efforts to suppress places of worship.

Yugan county, administered by Shangrao city, has over one million residents, more than ten percent of whom are Protestants, who attend over 300 officially registered Three-Self churches.

It’s no mystery why Xi Jinping and his evil regime have the peddle to the floor with the murder, torture, and imprisonment of Christians with the hope of completely annihilating Christianity in China.
The CCP will never succeed. Because Satan is a defeated foe and for Christians Satan’s power has been broken. The best this fallen world can do to believers is harm our fleshly bodies but are spirit and eternal destiny is hid in Christ, in God (Colossians 3:3) and no one, no entity not even Satan can change that.
‘What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”’
