When you support BTJ Bible distribution efforts, you support one of the most aggressive frontline Christian mission operations in the world. Nations like China, North Korea and Iran have declared all-out war on Christians, which is why BTJ employs small-unit gorilla-warfare tactics to support the underground church.
Many Christians are not comfortable with language that mixes the Gospel with the harsh brutal nature of battle, but the undeniable truth is that Christians are being slaughtered every day for their simple belief in Jesus Christ and are involved in spiritual warfare that is manifested in the flesh. Iran is no different. The enemy in Iran has launched an all-out attack on Christians. Christians are hunted down, arrested, beaten, incarcerated, tortured, and sometimes executed for their belief in Jesus Christ.
Persecution in Iran has led to more people coming to Christ in the last century than all of the previous centuries combined! This flood of new believers has created a demand for God’s Word. To help meet this need, BTJ has developed three main ways to provide Bibles in Iran.
The three ways that BTJ provides Bibles in Iran are:
- Electronic Distribution
- Printing Inside the Country
Electronic Bibles are distributed through different channels. One of the electric distribution channels is through ‘bread factories’. BTJ has ‘bread factories’, or electronic Bible distribution centers, throughout the nation that can produce and distribute micro-electronic Bible tools. Details of the Bibles that they distribute and where they are distributed cannot be shared.
In addition to the ‘bread factories’ is Operation Black Trumpet. Operation Black Trumpet is a clandestine project led by our Hackers network. Every year, BTJ hosts a BTJ Hackers Conference to provide back-door access to Bibles for Christians in closed nations like Iran. Operation Black Trumpet is the first project of its kind to allow Christians in closed nations unique access to Bibles on the Internet without being detected.
Operation Black Trumpet is just one of the many projects that have been carried out by those who have attended the BTJ Hackers Conferences – where Christian hackers from all around the world come together to find unique ways to spread the Gospel in closed nations.
Due to the nature of Operation Black Trumpet, further details cannot be released in any public setting.
In the last couple of years, God has provided an open door into Iran where we have been able to smuggle in several thousand Bibles.
Though the electronic Bible distribution and the Bible smuggling operations are helpful, they are not the only answer to the current need. In order to sustain the revival for years to come, we believe that it is imperative to support the domestic production of Bibles inside Iran. Instead of providing Bibles from outside resources that are subject to border control and cross-border commerce during times of sanctions and war, it is necessary to support sustainable and independent manufacturing inside.
