Un reporte desde Cuba

La iglesia continua a pesar de dificultades y persecución

HABANA (FRI) – Mientras miro por la ventana de mi destartalado cuarto, en el piso doce, con vista a la ciudad de la Habana, Cuba, pienso en el pasado viaje que fue excitoso y emocionante. He tenido el privilegio de no sólo predicar en varias iglesias no registradas (no gubernamentales), sino también de alentar pastores en cultos privados.

Estos hombres y mujeres son los héroes de hoy. Han enfrentado persecución, pobreza, sacrificio, terror y siguen viviendo en el. Estos hermanos y hermanas a veces pasan hambre por causa de la crísis económica. Esto es particularmente triste cuando pensamos que sólo viven a noventa millas de los Estados Unidos.

A pesar de las increibles dificultades, ha habido una explosión del renacimiento y una increible difusión del Espíritu Santo en ésta isla. La mayoría de las iglesias están repletas de multitudes de pie, mientras en los 60s y 70s muchas iglesias fueron cerradas, hoy filas de gente salen por la puerta de enfrente. Recientemente muchas congregaciones se han multiplicado, e incluso triplicado en participación.

Quizá lo más emocionante es el hecho que el 70% de los miembros de la iglesia estén por debajo de los 30 años de edad. Existe una hambre espiritual entre la juventud cubana, como nunca antes. Sin embargo, a causa de su crecimiento, el gobierno ha empezado a oponerse a las iglesias locales viendo al cristianismo como una amenaza para su futura existencia.

En mi primer viaje a Cuba en 1993, había mas apertura hacia las iglesias por parte del gobierno. Ahora , hay un crecimiento en la sospecha, el miedo y la preocupación de que ésta revolución cristiana se les esté saliendo de las manos. Restricciones y persecución a ministros se ha convertido en algo común, algunas iglesias han sido cerradas por el gobierno. A pesar de la buena imagen de relaciones públicas internacionales creada recientemente por el liderazgo del país. En el fondo hay una gran preocupación de que la alianza con el comunismo se esté tambaleando.

Otro método que ha sido utilizado en contra del crecimiento fenomenal de la iglesia es la promoción de una religión sustituta en Cuba: la brujería. El gobierno declaró abiertamente que la Brujería/Santería es la “religión cultural oficial” de la isla. En cualquier tienda del gobierno se puede encontrar una sección entera dedicada a la venta de artificios, vestidos e instrumentos para la práctica de este sustituto espiritual demoníaco. Más que eso Cuba ha patrocinado conferencias internacionales y talleres en la introducción de la Santería.

El misionero Hudson Taylor dijo: “La gran comisión no es una opción para considerar, es un mandato para obedecer!” El sonido de la trompeta es claro. Además de enviar grupos evangelistas de “Campeones para Cristo” a Costa Rica, Honduras, Panamá, Colombia, Perú y Nicaragua, seguiremos este año con más ofensiva en Cuba.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Running Time: 145 minutes
