ISIS – Pushing Muslims Toward Christ

This is from the Voice of the Martyrs site, describing something that I’ve now heard about from many sources.

While many in the west, including Christians, grow fearful and suspicious of Muslims in their communities and want to resist the flow of Muslim refugees from war zones like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan;  God is doing among Muslims  despite those Christian attitudes..

Islamic State (ISIS) is now believed to have fully operational branches in 18 countries across the world, not only persecuting Christians, but also pushing Muslims toward Christ.

Its efforts to create a ‘pure’ Islamic nation are causing a growing number of Muslims to examine their faith more closely and more critically. “There are a lot of people turning from Islam”, said Ibrahim Al-Jamil, a pastor in northern Iraq. “Jesus has a big net and ISIS is pushing people toward this net. What we are seeing now is like the tip of the iceberg”.

While Christian fear is a disappointing response, even worse is outright Christian hostility towards Muslims, particularly those who are refugees after being driven from their homelands. I’ve written about this before. (Will hating Muslims lead them to Jesus?)

 

Such fear and hostility is working against what God is doing. Do we want to be on the wrong side of His purposes?

Fearless for Christ

Four masked gunmen charged into Mohammad Yousuf Bhat’s home on the evening of 1 July 2016, pushed his wife aside and demanded to talk to him. After he stepped forward, the gunmen escorted the 43-year-old father of three outside his home in the Kashmir Valley, India and shot him seven times, killing him. Those who worked with Yousuf describe him as being a fearless, bold and passionate believer who “would not be quiet about Christ”.

Mission and Motivation

In the previous post I included the trailer for a film about some of the work being done by FAI Mission. In the following half hour talk, Dalton Thomas gives a brief description of that ministry and the motivation behind it.

And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Frontline Ministry

Rarely would the meaning of “frontline ministry” become so literal.

BETTER FRIENDS THAN MOUNTAINS VOL. II

explores the opportunities for a tangible witness of Jesus and the work of FAI Relief before, during, and after the campaign to liberate Mosul from the clutches of ISIS. Follow our team and get a first-hand look at what is means to give an incarnate witness of the Incarnate God amidst bloodthirsty conflict and carnage.

The power vacuum left by ISIS in Iraq and Kurdistan will bring a no less long and arduous road than the one to eradicate them from these territories. We are committed to mourning with these people through their losses, and moving forward with them into their futures.
