Saeed Abidini’s Powerful Testimony A Year After His Release & A Word From God 



“Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?”

Today Pastor Saeed Abidini posted a powerful testimony about his persecution and release from darkness.  But before I get into that I want to give you a powerful word I received from the Lord while reading his post.

I received a clear vision of the Spirit asking “Were you there when they crucified your Lord?”  As Christians we should feel a stabbing pain and also rejoicing when we think of our Lord’s crucifixion.  He lives!!

He showed me what the words to the song Were you there when they crucified my Lord,  meant.    Every time a brother or sister is persecuted for their faith in Christ, the persecutors are crucifying our Lord over again!  Every time we turn our backs on a persecuted brother or sister our Lord is crucified again.  Turning our backs to persecution is turning our backs to the Lord!

God gave me this because of what Brother Saeed said.  I’ll show you what he said, then I will explain.

In his own words:

Matthew 19:29-30  (NKJV)
29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[a] or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
One year ago in the same night when I got to sleep in a very cold prion of Iran I was thinking by myself when I left U.S. to mission field 5 years ago I had my family and freedom and so many other things but Now in prison after 3/5 years I don’t have any of them with me and probably not have them again forever so I slept in so much pain.

But the day after in the morning of January 16, 2016 when the guard woke me up , I got the biggest surprise of my life

They told me you need to follow us to another prison called Evin

They didn’t talk to me but I could smell the Smell of Freedom and I knew Iam going to be FREE, soon.

I knew I lost my family forever

I knew I would lost my job because of accusation of my ex wife

I knew I lost my reputation

I knew I would have a even harder life after prison with so many public and financial and relational issues problem

I knew I would be rejected with religious Christian world after of years of serving the Lord and years of being under tortures just because of keeping my faith on JESUS Christ as my Lord and Savior. And I forgave them all.

While I was walking out of prison it seemed one of my legs wanted to stay in prison and another leg want to get out and see what’s next

It was a very very sweet-bitter emotional time and I hardly could walk but I didn’t have any other choice I must step forward

I was so confused because for years, I handled all these suffering to be a testimony and witness for Christ but in a night just 3 months before my freedom media and others turned it to something different

But I got free

Maybe Today you lost so much like me but keep faith, maybe when tomorrow you wake up again, you will receive some big surprises as I got my freedom back a year ago , who knows? and maybe NOT but still you can keep your focus and joy on eternal life ( Daniel 3:18 ).

Keep courage , hundreds millions all around the world sleep in pain at nights and some of them get some surprises in the mornings, not all of them but all of them can get the eternal surprises everyday in Jesus , We all can be one of them

Let’s keep focus on Him, There is some eternal promises in Him

There is a light after this tunnel and always there is a day after a dark night

Sweet dreams tonight.

I read this testimony through tears and remembered how we travailed for him for 3 1/2 years.  I remembered his release and how much I wanted to run to him and hold him as a brother in Christ and wipe away his tears.  I had already heard weeks before his release of the damming news released about him.  I wept as so many Christians turned their backs on him.  God laid him on my heart and said “you will defend my child.”  I was asked many times why do you support this man and all I could say was he is a persecuted brother.  That is until today.  God showed me that to issue unrighteous judgement on a brother, a persecuted brother was an agregious abuse.  And to turn away was to turn from our Lord!!

I will never turn away from the persecuted.  Shame on those who do.  As God showed me they are crucifying our Lord all over again.  I know many won’t understand what the Holy Spirit says but many will.  I’ll leave you with God’s words given to me and the words to the song.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord? (Were you there?)
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
O Sometimes it causes me to tremble! tremble! tremble!
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nail’d him to the cross? (Were you there?)
Were you there when they nail’d him to the cross?
O Sometimes it causes me to tremble! tremble! tremble!
Were you there when they nail’d him to the cross?

Were you there when they pierced him in the side? (Were you there?)
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
O Sometimes it causes me to tremble! tremble! tremble!
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?

Were you there when the sun refused to shine? (Were you there?)
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
O Sometimes it causes me to tremble! tremble! tremble!
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

One last note.  Notice how Brother Saeeds faith INCREASED through his sufferring,  would yours?  I hear this over and over and over from the persecuted their faith grows.

  1. Amen! I agree. Shame on those who turned against him with nothing but the accusations of a self serving woman.
    LORD+ help and strengthen brother Saeed in his walk and heal and sooth his aching heart. In JESUS’ Name.
