BEIJING, CHINA (Worthy News)-- China has sentenced an Uyghur house church leader to 15 years "criminal detention" on charges of "providing state secrets to overseas organizations", but his supporters linked the sentence to  his Christian activities.

China Aid Association (CAA), an advocacy group with close ties to house churches, said Monday, December 7,  that 36-year-old Alimujiang Yimiti received the sentence October 28, but added that his lawyers have filed an appeal against the verdict.

Alimujiang was held at Kashgar Detention Center for over two years without a verdict, several Christians confirmed.

He was first formally detained and charged on "suspicions of harming national security" by the Bureau of State Security of Kashgar, a city in the western part of China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, apparently because of running a house church.

CHARGES CHANGED

The charges were then changed to "suspicion of instigating separatism and providing national secrets or intelligence to overseas organizations or individuals," earlier this year, trial observers said.

Information has been difficult to confirm. He was tried secretly including in the Kashgar Intermediate Court on May 27, Christians said.

China has denied human rights violations saying Christians are free to worship within the Communist-government backed churches. Many of the roughly 130 million Christians prefer to worship in 'house churches', named this way as they are often organized in homes and other buildings of individual believers.

    Yes!

    Yes They Are!

    "Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews.
    They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever.
    Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image:
    And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
    There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
    Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these men before the king."

    Even In Their Dying They Will Worship The Living God

    "Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
    Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?"

    Has Not God Called You Oh Mighty Rulers Over New China

    "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
    If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
    But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up."

    Do Know The Killing Of God's Children Has Happened May Times Before

    "Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
    And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
    Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
    Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.
    And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace."

    And Sometimes God Has Mercy On The Mighty Rulers And Saves Them Even From Their Own Hatred

    "Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellers, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
    He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."

    Oh Mighty And Ruthless Rulers Over The Little Ones Of New China, Has God Called You

    "Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
    And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellers, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
    Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God."

    Yet?

    "Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.
    "Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, in the province of Babylon." Daniel 3:8-30

    Hallelujah!

    I Love You LORD Jesus
