A Christian man executed by the Iranian regime said in a video before his death that he is not afraid of losing his life, and suggested that Iran’s leaders who kill hundreds of people every year should fear God’s judgment.

Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini has been sharing accounts and videos about Ali Asadi, one of the Christians who was recently executed by the Iranian regime, and noted that the prisoner asked God to forgive all other prisoners before his execution.

Abedini, who spent three and a half years in Iranian prison before being released in January, said one of the videos was recorded in Rajaeeshahr prison, where he spent more than two years.

In the video, Asadi shared his testimony, and according to Abedini declared that he is “not scared” of death, but instead asserted that Iran’s leaders, who kill hundreds of people, should be the ones who are afraid, as they are going to face God’s judgment one day.

Asadi reportedly said in the video that he’s glad he’s going to be with the Lord, and asked people to be happy for him, despite his execution.

“We rejoice with him because we know he is with Lord Jesus Christ today and we know the Lord will punish evils, but we pray that Lord forgive them and save them from their evil ways,” Abedini wrote, adding that Asadi’s body may be dead, but his “testimony is alive,” and he is with God.

The pastor has asked world leaders in the United States, the European Union and the U.N., to forcefully speak out and condemn the continued mass executions of prisoners in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
