American Pastor Saeed Abedini Imprisoned in Iran and Facing a Hanging Muslim Judge IS NOW A FREE MAN!!!

Naghmeh Abedini, Pastor Saeed Abedini and their son and daughter.

UPDATE 16 January 2016: According to numerous media reports which were confirmed a few hours ago by the American Center for Law and Justice, Pastor Saeed Abedini was one of five dual-nationality American-Iranian prisoners released from Iranian imprisonment today. 

Also released with Pastor Abedini were Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, and businessman Nosratollah Khosravi. The fifth one released was Matthew Trevithnick. These five were part of a deal that released seven Iranian prisoners from U.S. jails, six of who were also dual US-Iranian citizens who had been convicted as guilty of violating sanctions against Iran.

The release of Pastor Abedini is indeed an answer to many prayers offered to God by his brethren.

20 January 2013: Brothers and Sisters in Christ all over the world the situation of Pastor Saeed Abedini is our immediate concern, and we must lift him, his wife Naghmeh and their two young children up to God in prayer. Pastor Abedini, an American-Iranian citizen, was pulled off a public transportation bus and arrested in September 2012 for the same "crime" as Iranian Pastor Yusef Nadarkhani - his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his preaching of The Word to the Iranian people.

Pastor Abedini in being held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran where is subjected to an alternating daily regimen of physical torture, mental anguish, sleep deprivation as well as an unrelenting assault upon his inviolable human rights. A hastily scheduled trial before Judge Pir-Abassi the day after tomorrow, Monday, 21 January 2013, stands  before our brother-in-Christ. Judge Pir-Abassi is infamous the world over for the number of unwarranted death sentences he has handed down.

At the present time and to the best of any one's knowledge the United States Department of State under Hillary Rodham Clinton has done absolutely nothing to intercede on Pastor Abedini's behalf. Neither has U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama made an official statement regarding Pastor Abedini's imprisonment and impending trial. However, in a "better something than nothing" development the following statement was issued on Friday, 18 January by National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor:

“We remain troubled by the case of US citizen Saeed Abedini, who was arrested by Iranian officials more than three months ago on charges relating to his religious beliefs. We call upon Iranian authorities to release him immediately.”

Even though the United States of America's National Security Council remains "troubled," let us continue to pray in vigil wherever we are in the world for Pastor Saeed, his wife Naghmeh and their children in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Praying for Pastor Abedini to be released without any further charges and also, for God to move so mightily upon this judge that he will be unable to pronounce his death sentences upon any other Believers in Jesus Christ. I plead the blood Jesus Christ over Pastor Abedini and call forth a Holy hedge of protection around him and his entire family.

Shalom,GG5

Praying for Pastor Abedini. The devil wants to thwart the Gospel of Jesus Christ and this is just another wicked attempt to do that. But by the miracle of God Almighty the devil will not succeed.

Praying for supernatural intervention and courage during this trying time.

Sean,
Had a message from one of the lawyers with ACLJ regarding the latest information on the pastor. According to their official report, Pastor Abedini was relocated to another unit at the prison and then was brought before the judge unbeknown to the pastor's family. The verdict was guilty and he has been sentenced to 8 years in another prison that is noted for their extreme ruthless treatment.

However, I just received an update from Fox News and they are saying that he will serve out his sentence in the Evin Prison but it is just as ruthless. Cannot remember the name of the other prison.

We have had a measure of answer to our prayers in that he was sentenced to hang. Now we have to intercede for his release quickly. As I was reading the report, I suddenly recalled the incident in the New Testament where Peter was imprisoned and SUDDENLY an angel opened the jail cell gates, escorted Peter out and restored him to his group unharmed. I am asking our Abba to bring into being the promises that what was in the past shall be again and that Pastor Abedini's Angel lead him out unnoticed, and adding "healing by the stripes of Jesus Christ".

Shalom,GG5

GG5,

Thank you for the update.

I also would pray that the Lord Harpazo Pastor Abedini out of that prison and into his Utah home in the same manner that he Harpazoed Phillip from outside of Jerusalem into Azotus (Ashdod) in Acts 8:39-40.

There would be no doubt that the Lord of the Universe had acted and the god of islam is a fraud.

Sean,
I stand in agreement with your Harpazo petition to Abba Father. Strongly confirming that when 2 or more are gathered together in the Name of Jesus and agree touching anything, IT SHALL BE DONE AS THEY SAID.

Shalome, GG5
