In China, police raided a small house church celebrating Christmas. For security reasons, the region of the raid cannot be named.
The police did not make any arrests, but instead mandated every attendee to take a coronavirus test. The police were carrying testing kits with them and took oral samples. Strangely, everyone at the Christmas service tested positive with the coronavirus and were ordered to immediately quarantine.
According to current covid-19 regulations, the phones of the church members – which has their digital ID – were labeled with a red QR code which prohibits them from traveling. In addition, all of the friends and family members of the church members were issued a yellow QR code on their phone to prohibit certain types of activities in China.
Once the church members were in quarantine, the leader of the fellowship arranged for another covid test to be administered by a private clinic. Amazingly, none of the church members tested positive for the coronavirus!
The pastor said that one of three things had happened: either the local police are using covid restrictions as a way to control church activity, the police are carrying faulty tests, or God has supernaturally healed all of the church members of the virus.
BTJ continues to work with the underground church during this season of persecution to continue bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to China.
