Calamities in Iran See Many Iranians Seeking Jesus Christ

Iran suffers one calamity after another, but many Iranians are seeking Christ and even seeing visions of a “man in white.”

The city of Abadan in Iran has been placed under lockdown after a spike of COVID-19 cases. Leaders claimed people were not following social distancing rules.

COVID-19 hit Iran hard, but the country has slowly started opening back up. Still, Iran faces many challenges. U.S. Sanctions during the quarantine have hurt recovery efforts, and an earthquake hit the country Friday, causing many to leave their homes and mingle in the streets.

Reza* with Global Catalytic Ministries points out that Iran suffered the killing of a military leader earlier this year, as well as a locust plague. On Sunday, a military training accident sunk a ship and killed 19 Iranians. “Everyone sees this as God’s judgment on the country, and everyone’s waiting for something even worse to happen because it’s been non-stop.”

Even COVID-19 numbers have been underreported. As a result, Iranians do not trust their government and live in fear of more judgment from God.
