About Daniel Shayesteh

Dr Daniel was born into a Muslim family in Northern Iran. He became a radical Muslim leader and teacher of Islam in the militant Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini. However, after falling out of favor with Khomeini’s political group, he escaped to Turkey where there began an amazing journey to faith in Jesus Christ.

Daniel's mission is to help others understand and lovingly respond to those who do not know Christ. He is also deeply concerned for the future of Western societies, their loss of confidence in Judeo-Christian values, and their persistent naivete about the implications of the world-wide Islamic revival.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly (Eph.6:20b)

The sworn enemies of the Gospel do not give up. We, therefore, must expect to be bothered, confined, imprisoned, persecuted and killed. They persecuted and killed the One who revealed the glories of heaven. If they are so against the Prince of Peace, obviously they will act the same towards His followers.

What we can do in the face of all the above pressures in this world?

Every person in the world can only make one of two choices:  follow the Prince of absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness; or follow His sworn enemy.

We are full of excitement that we have a new identity in Christ and are able to stand for His absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness and hold them as the standard of our lives, no matter how angry His enemies will be. We have solid reasons to be excited; our sins are forgiven; we are free and have the hope of glory.

On the other hand, the enemies of Christ are chained by their man-made traditions.  Sadly they are not able to see their bondages. This means it is not easy to talk to them. Some of them are full of anger and are even taught to practise anger and avoid listening. The Lord has chosen and called us to deal with these very hard ones. Please hold us firm in your prayers so that we might be always able to remember our identity in Christ and declare His saving message fearlessly.
