Prison Guard Has Visions of Jesus and Sets Captive Pastors Free

Two pastors conducting a Bible study for new believers in an underground Middle East church were beaten, arrested by police, and taken to a secret jail. But after Jesus appeared to an official at the prison, their situation changed dramatically.

“Police brought us to the religious (Shariah) court,” Pastor Irshad* told Bibles4Mideast. “We were accused of blasphemy charges against the prophet, as well as misguiding Muslims into a false religion. The court ordered we be imprisoned, and we were taken to a secret jail run by secret police.”

During the first few days in prison, they received harsh treatment. “The jail wardens brutally beat and persecuted us,” Pastor Irshad recounted. “They tied our hands up through the hole of a steel bar which forced us into a bent position while they beat us.”

They received one meal a day, ‘Kubboos,’ a local bread. “We never thought we’d ever get out alive,” Pastor Irshad noted.

After the first two months, they became discouraged and cried out to the Lord: “Where are You? Why won’t You come and save us?”
