Being a parent and hearing that your child has gone missing is a devastating feeling. Your mind starts racing as you think of all the possibilities of where they could be and what happened to them. You don’t want to believe that they are hurt or in danger, but you can’t help but feel that […]
Communist North Korea will soon get hit with a massive new radio signal carrying the message of Christ’s love, CBN News reports.
“It’s an AM station, 250,000 watts, which will clearly cover North Korea,” said Ed Cannon, president of Fart East Broadcasting Company.
FEBC has been using radio signals for over 75 years to share the message of Jesus Christ to those around the world.
According to Cannon, this new “Super Station” will be placed close to the border of North and South Korea.
“We’ve secured a location on the western coast of South Korea just a few miles south of the Demilitarized Zone,” Cannon told CBN News. “It’s a perfect location because the signal goes across the ocean for a few miles and then goes right into North Korea.”
Cannon shared that the radio signal will launch in a few months. He also says the signal will be “unlockable” by North Korea’s regime and will “reach far past the northern boundary of North Korea covering the entire country with the message of Jesus Christ.”
The current strategy of the organization is to use indigenous people in their native language to produce the programming, Cannon said.
“We have a large segment of South Korean people broadcasting and we also have a number of escapees, refugees from North Korea, who’ve come to our organization.”
North Korea is ranked number one as the most dangerous and oppressive countries for Christians on the World Watch Lost.
Being a Christian in North Korea is considered one of the worst crimes possible. In this totalitarian communist state, Christians are forced to hide their faith completely at all times.
Worship of the ruling Kim Family is mandated for all citizens so any disruption of this can place your life and your family’s life in jeopardy.
It is extremely dangerous for parents to teach their faith to their children until their kids are old enough to understand the dangers.
Owning a Bible in North Korea is grounds for execution or deportment to a harsh labor camp, where unknown numbers die each year from torture, beatings, overexertion and starvation.
It is incredible that even in the midst of major persecution; there is still hope for the message of Jesus Christ to be spread throughout North Korea!
