June 2021 is the 2nd anniversary of the patriotic people of Hong Kong’s courageous resistance to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The CCP was working for complete control of Hong Kong with a national extradition law. That law allows the CCP to extradite dissidents from Hong Kong to mainland China. Many have been thrown into prison and/or been “disappeared.” The CCP doesn’t want you to know — and mainstream media/Big Tech don’t care — but like much else with the CCP, this is also a Christian persecution issue. CCP control means Communist hegemony in Hong Kong.
Back in 2019, protesters were in the streets of Hong Kong resisting the extradition law. They stood
strong in the face of attacks from both the Hong Kong police and CCP security. They were beaten
back brutally, with many injured and some even killed. But the resistance continued, and a video
escaped from Hong Kong of the protesters singing the worship song “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord”
on the streets. Many of the young Hong Kongers, not following Jesus, came from strong Christian
families and a Christian legacy, so they knew to Whom to turn when they needed strength. You can read about where I believe Hong Kong’s legacy of freedom came from in this article I wrote for The Stream.
Since the 2019 Anti-Extradition Protests, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have continued
to show extraordinary courage and perseverance in the face of the continuing brutality, oppression, and authoritarianism of the CCP. China has military power and political pressure. Hong Kong’s leadership and police appear to fully be under China’s sway. Protests continue against Hong Kong’s stolen freedom. And security forces continue to attempt to completely crush them.
As Christians, and people who believe in freedom, we should stand with Hong Kongers against the
brutal CCP regime. As a thug, bully regime, the CCP gains strength when the free world does not
push back on behalf of its victims. Our own national security depends on it, as well.
At the recent annual Synod of the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word, lay delegates and other attendees did just this. KGI Global Advocacy led those at the meeting for the laity on Saturday, June 12, in singing “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord,” to show our prayerful support for the “Hong Kongers.” That recording has been sent to Hong Kong to encourage them!
Another recording was also sent to Hong Kong. This was a rally against the CCP held at The Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC. Those standing against the Communist regime and singing “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord,” included Christians and non-Christians alike. The members of what are “captive nations” to the Chinese Communist Party regime such as Uyghurs from East Turkestan, Tibetans, Mongols, Burmese, and Falun Gong practitioners were joined by Koreans, American Christian supporters, and others.
Please join us in a show of solidarity for the Hong Kongers by bringing glory to God and singing Hallelujah to Him in support of Hong Kong. Grab a group of friends, your Sunday School class, your youth group, or your entire church membership and record yourselves singing Hallelujah to the Lord! You can have posters and banners as we did at the Chinese Embassy. You can pray for Hong Kong. . . you can even pray for the CCP! That God will get a hold of them1 If you send your video to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will make sure that it gets to Hong Kong.
Praise the Lord along with us and with the people of Hong Kong!
