China’s communist authorities are continuing their crackdown on Christianity by removing Bible Apps and Christian WeChat public accounts.
When someone tries to access those accounts, a message reads, “(We) received a report that (this account) violates the ‘Internet User Public Account Information Services Management Provisions’ and its account has been blocked and suspended.”

Bible Apps have also been removed from the App Store in China, and Bibles in hard copy are no longer available for sale online either.
Bible Apps can only be downloaded in China with the use of a VPN.
Another sign of the ongoing crackdown is that bookstores owned by the state-sanctioned Three-self churches have increasingly been selling books that promote President Xi Jinping’s thoughts and communist ideology
Let us pray.
- Pray the Lord will flood this nation with His Word through printed Bibles and technology. Thank Him that no plan of man can stop His word from going forth and achieving His purposes (Isaiah 55:11).
- Pray this latest crackdown will bring further resolve to His children to stay strong and not be moved.
- Ask the Lord to soften the hearts of those in authority, drawing many to Himself.
