It has been a week or so since I read this most recent news of ISIS beheading at least 4 Christian children under the age of 15. It has really been eating at my heart that I have been ill and unable to write about this until now. These children were told by the ISIS Devils all they had to do was convert to Islam and they could live.
Canon Andrew White said, "“Islamic State turned up and said to the children, you say the words that you will follow Mohammed.
“The children, all under 15, four of them, said no, we love Yesua, we have always loved Yesua, we have always followed Yesua, Yesua has always been with us.
“They said, ‘Say the words.’ They said, ‘No, we can’t.’ They chopped all their heads off."
The Faith of these 4 children is amazing. I Pray if I am ever in that position I will have the Faith and courage of these 4 children.
Canon White went on to say:
“It was safer, but then one day, ISIS – Islamic State. They came in and they hounded all of them out.
They killed huge numbers, they chopped their children in half, they chopped their heads off, and they moved north and it was so terrible what happened.”
Islamic State forced Christians to convert to Islam on pain of death, he said. “They came to one of our people the other day, one of the Christians.
“They said to one man, an adult, ‘Either you say the words of conversion to Islam or we kill all your children’.
We are warned of these days in The Scriptures:
2 Timothy 3:12 - Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
Revelation Chapter 69 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
1 Peter Chapter 414 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, or [as] an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
16 Yet if [any man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
Revelation 20:4 - And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
These children have assured themselves a place with Jesus for Eternity. I will be glad when Jesus reigns down His Justice on the EVIL TOOLS OF SATAN!
