I recently saw a 2017 documentary on YouTube called “Harvested Alive: The 10 Year Investigation” which was very startling and compiles a broad amount of evidence showing the large-scale live organ harvesting of State labelled dissidents, predominantly Falun Gong practitioners in China since 1999.
The video is translated into English and details evidence from Chinese Communist Party officials, military leaders, the Judiciary, hospitals, Police and more, showing a massive and organised State-led system of forced human organ harvesting. The documentary details how organs are procured from Falun Gong practitioners who have been systematically imprisoned and tortured since 1999 in secret concentration camps, to be transported to hospitals for transplantation with a one or two week waiting time for the recipient, some receiving the donor organ in as little as four hours.
The ordinary wait time for a donor to receive an organ in the United States can be five to ten years. Evidence revealed that a hospital was disposing of corpses after their organs were harvested in the boiler room and not a morgue, allowing people to vanish without a trace after being harvested for any organ of financial value, including the cornea, heart, liver and brain.
A particularly harrowing account comes from a Police Officer who stood guard as a female Falun Gong practitioner screaming in pain was cut in two with no sedative or pain medication and her heart was cut out and the rest of her organs extracted. This documentary details this appalling practice led by the Chinese Government and concludes that this practice of forced human organ harvesting is still in widespread implementation across China.
As a Christian to hear of these things and the evidence behind it reveals an atrocious and vile evil that is ongoing and seems to operate with impunity.
Shining light on darkness
The Scripture tells us in Luke chapter 8 verse 17 “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.”
Bringing to light the injustice and evil done in secret is something we are called to support: Ephesians chapter 5 verse 11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Documentary maker Dr. Zhiyuan Wang was an aviation military doctor in China for 30 years and came to the United States in 1995 to study cardiovascular disease. In March 2006 his life changed when he heard of the wide scale organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners and thereafter set himself to investigate and prepare the documentary which he released at Washington DC on the 23rd of June 2017. Falun Gong is a spiritual practice that combines the Chinese “qigong”, a slow-moving exercise popular in the 1990s, with Taoist moral teachings. They exercise a non-violent belief said to be centred on the tenets of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance.
Persecution of Falun Gong practitioners began in 1999 and increased greatly over subsequent years, with the practice being banned outright and declared an “evil cult”, a threat to society to be stamped out by the Chinese Communist Party, whose members itself must be Atheist. Falun Gong practitioners numbered at around 70 million at this time. In 2001 reports and footage of five people alleged by the State as Falun Gong practitioners pouring fuel over themselves and lighting themselves on fire at Tiananmen Square supported Government led persecution efforts.
A Washington Post article on August 5, 2001 reported: “Some local governments had experimented with brainwashing classes before, but in January, Beijing's secret 610 office, an interagency task force leading the charge against Falun Gong, ordered all neighborhood committees, state institutions and companies to begin using them, government sources said. No Falun Gong member is supposed to be spared. The most active members are sent directly to labor camps where they are first "broken" by beatings and other torture, the adviser said.”
The article describes the use of electric truncheons and other torture techniques to re-educate the Falun Gong, to have them renounce their beliefs.
Jesus spoke in Revelation chapter 2 verse 10: “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
A massive State-led persecution campaign, imprisonment, torture and organ harvesting of the followers of a religion the Chinese Communist Party deemed an unscientific evil cult should bring concern for Bible believing Christians.
Why Christian’s should take this seriously
As of 2010 a Pew forum estimated there are 67 million Christians in China, similar to the amount of Falun Gong before the persecution. Christianity is the fastest growing religion in China, and currently practice must be at State prescribed churches with State prescribed teachings and all “underground churches” including home churches, preaching the Gospel and non-sanctioned meetings are strictly banned, with persecution against Christians in China growing strongly.
Christians should take these matters seriously and remember the warnings of Jesus Christ and what He told us would happen before His return: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.” (Matthew chapter 24 verses 9 to 10)
We are warned again in Matthew chapter 10 verse 22: “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”
I myself have dreamed of Christians being labelled and arrested under terrorism laws for speaking about the end times and the tribulation here in Australia. I know that great persecution against Christian’s is coming as the Word of God tells us it will be so, and I imagine the coming persecution of Christians may in some ways mirror that of the Falun Gong in China.
Hope in a dark world
I see the signs of what is coming in the world. The forced organ harvesting in China seems to continue unhindered and I am reminded of the many other atrocities that go on every day in this world. Abortion is now the leading cause of death in the world with 41 million babies killed in 2018, with now almost one in four of all pregnancies being aborted (murdered) as reported by Breitbart on 31 December 2018, and this is carried out by brutal techniques including cutting, tearing and suction of living babies, often limb by limb.
We live in a world where evil runs rampant and is often covered up and excused. We should not be afraid to speak the truth as followers of Jesus Christ and to expose the unfruitful works of darkness. We should soberly consider what is going on in the world and what God tells us will come.
I feel led to pray for those Falun Gong practitioners who are suffering and facing brutal persecution, for the Chinese people and for all those facing oppression and persecution around the world, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. I hope that the light of God through Jesus Christ may shine upon them to the saving of their souls, and that the Lord may strengthen and deliver them.
