FREED AMERICANS GIVE MIKE PENCE PSALM 126 NOTE

Give thanks to the Lord for His deliverance of these American hostages in North Korea and the powerful testimony to God that they are sharing with our leaders and the world.

When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, LORD, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. (Ps 126)

The three American Christians who were released this week from North Korea gave Vice President Mike Pence a note citing Psalm 126 as a thanksgiving of freedom during their meeting early Thursday morning.

Pence, a devout Christian and former Indiana governor, took to his Facebook page to share the note he received while meeting the men — Kim Dong-chul (arrested in 2015), Tony Kim (arrested in 2017) and Kim Hak-song (arrested in 2017) — at Joint Base Andrews in a Washington suburb of Maryland after their release was secured by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang earlier this week.

“It was an amazing moment I’ll never forget … when three Americans stepped onto the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews and gave me a signed personal note with Psalm 126 on the back,” Pence wrote in his post. “To these men of faith and courage — God bless you and welcome home!”

It has not been made clear who wrote the note and how the note was presented to the vice president.

The three men issued a statement upon their return early Thursday morning thanking God and the Trump administration.

“We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary [of State Mike] Pompeo and the people of the United States for bringing us home,” the prisoners said in their statement.

Through his translator, Kim Dong-chul  explained that “it’s like a dream” to be returning to the U.S.

“And we are very, very happy,” Kim, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was sentenced to 10 years on spying charges in April 2016, said.

Responding to a question, Kim detailed what it was like to live inside a North Korean labor camp.

“Yes, we were treated in many different ways,” he said through the translator. “For me, I had to do a lot of labor. But when I got sick, I was also treated by them.”

North Korea has been ranked for the last 16 years as the worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution, according to Open Doors USA’s annual World Watch List.

Thousands of individuals and families have been subject to brutal torment and torture inside of North Korea’s “re-education camps” for crimes such as defection from the country and even Christian worship.

The release of the three Americans comes after the death last year of U.S. college student Otto Warmbier. Warmbier was arrested while in the country with a tour group in 2016 and sentenced to 15 years in prison for allegedly taking down a poster of late dictator Kim Jong Il….

“I really think he wants to do something. I think he did this because I really think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world,” Trump said. “I really believe that, Jon. And I think — I think that we’re going to have a success. I think this will be a very big success.”…  (Excerpts from  Samuel Smith article in the Christian Post)

  1. This is a prophetic sign that The Lord of Hosts really is opening doors to let the captives go free in Asia, out of the darkness into the marvelous light of Jesus! We pray for a massive harvest of souls in both Koreas and across Asia! Thank you Lord, You are the one who hears prayers!!!

  2. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!! Thank You heavenly Father, for setting the captives free. Father I ask that You will set other Christians free, too. I agree with Cathy that Turkey will set the Christians free also, especially Pastor B. Father, hear the cries of Your children as they humble themselves and seek Your face for the deliverance of the captive Christians in every nation. Even the USA has been limiting Christian freedom telling Christians they must go against their faith to make cakes and take pictures for weddings that go against their faith. Father, I pray for the Pro-life Clinics to be able to share their messages freely. Father, I pray that all tax payer funding going to Planned Parenthood would be stopped. I pray for the children who are confused by the transgender teachings they receive in our public schools. Father, You created us male and female. That is not a mistake. Set the captives free in this area too.
    We know satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but Jesus came to set us free from our sins, sicknesses, and diseases. (Psalm 103)
    Thank You for hearing our prayers. Amen

  3. Praise God for His faithfulness, “ taste and see that the Lord is Good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him”, Psalm 34:8.
    May God continue to bless these 3 men.

  4. Praying will inspire Turkey to do the same and all other Christians to be set free. We shout joyfully to the Lord of all who sets the prisoners free!

  5. God has opened prison doors like he did with St Peter and St. Paul.
    Blessed be the name of the Lord!!!
