ISIS, Islam and forced conversions today.

Does history repeats itself?

Have you been disturbed, as I have been, about recent news about ISIS and the atrocities committed in the name of God–Allah, to the Muslims? We are fortunate to be living in the USA where we have the right to have the freedom to believe in whatever faith we wish–as long as we don’t go around killing people and being a nuisance to society.

But even today, in this very instance, there are Christians being forced to convert to Islam!

I recently received a letter from a friend pleading for prayer for Christians who live in the Middle East. If you think that this is an exaggeration, think again, and please read the letter that’s from someone connected to what is happening in the Middle East and asking for prayer help. People are actually being converted at the point of the sword–even today! You can also read my article where I have the timeline of forced conversions here.

Islam's History of Violence

Islam–A History of Violence


It is shameful that this violence is not brought to light–all in the name of being politically correct. How can we call ourselves politically correct if we hide from the truth, do not allow the truth to be made known, and pretend such atrocities are not actually occurring right this moment? ISIS is here to stay if we don’t expose the truth to the masses.

Here is the letter:

Dear brothers and sisters,

Thought you should see this first- hand account about what is happening on the ground in Iraq at the hands of the ISIS. These believers are suffering the same conditions that the early Christians faced, and who gave their lives rather than recant.

A friend from Ohio just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him and his parish in prayer. He is part of a mission team and ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents.

The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries are now on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families – even if it means their own deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time. Even so, he is begging prayers for his courage to live out his vocation in such dire circumstances. And like the children accept martyrdom if he is called to do so.

She asked me to ask everyone we know to please pray for them. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and perseverance. She was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn’t say it but I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten.

Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region. May I plead with you not to ignore this email. Do not forward it before you have prayed through it.

Send it to friends and Christians you may know. Send it to your prayer group , pray on Sunday during the service – making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.

“And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercifully and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

With love to all,

So, please take a moment  pray for these people.
