As the Islamic State (ISIS) continues to advance across Iraq and Syria, it not only persecutes Christians but also pushes 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.”
Ibrahim said he also sees evidence on social media and the internet that Muslims are leaving Islam. He said they are repulsed by what ISIS is doing and increasingly disagree with Islam’s teachings. “ISIS is making people, especially Muslims, think about their faith and question the faith they were born with and don’t understand,” he said. They were reading the Quran, but there is a veil. So now when they are reading the Quran they have better understanding and they are questioning if this is the true faith and if Allah…..is ordering people to kill each other.”
Ibrahim estimates that about 80% of the Christian converts he has met came to Christ after having a dream about Jesus. “Muslims strongly believe in dreams and visions,” he said. And when we pray for the Muslims, the Lord is going to use the way they are believing strongly, which is dreams and visions. (Information from “The Voice of the Martyrs” magazine, January 2016).
SO LET US PRAY THAT ISIS DRIVES MORE AND MORE MUSLIMS INTO THE “NET” OF SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. LET US PRAY THAT JESUS REVEALS HIMSELF TO THE DESPERATE PEOPLE IN SYRIA AND IRAQ, RESULTING IN A GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS!
