ISIS Caliphate Now Aggressively Pursuing Christians In Towns Across The Nineveh Plain


Nahum 1:11-12a, “From you, Nineveh, has one come forth who plots evil against the LORD and devises wicked plans. This is what the LORD says: ‘Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be destroyed and pass away.'”

Heavenly Father, make what was true then in the vision of Nahum be true today. Mosul wasn’t enough, and the evil that was plotted against it is now being plotted against the rest of Nineveh. Yet, even the rest of Nineveh will not be enough to satisfy this wickedness. When we are weak, You are strong. Be the strength that Your people need to endure this hour, until You come to deliver them from the hand of the enemy …

Tribulation: Christians Throughout The Middle East

Tribulation: Christians Throughout The Middle East

By Catholic Online – “There is no rest for the wicked – or for those fleeing with their lives, it appears. Islamic State militants have now launched a mortar attack against the village of Tilkif in an attempt to break into one of the towns in the Nineveh Plain, where families driven from Mosul have found refuge.

The militia of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate having successfully driven all the Christians and Shiites from the city of Mosul in Iraq, has stepped up their campaign on ruthless persecution.

‘The attack started from a village controlled by jihadists,’ Father Paul Thabit Mekko, a Chaldean priest told the Fides news agency, ‘but was rejected by the Kurdish Peshmerga troops.

‘In the night, panic had driven dozens of Christian families to flee to Dohuk, but the Kurdish soldiers who were controlling a checkpoint told them that the situation was under control and could return home.’

Both towns lie north of Mosul. It was at this besieged Iraqi city that an ultimatum from the Islamic State last week to either convert to Islam or die, left the ancient city devoid of Christians. The Peshmerga are known to be fierce troops, fighting for a Kurdish independence movement in the north of Iraq.

As the Fides news agency outs it, on the one hand, the attack represents proof that the militia of the Islamic Caliphate are not content with controlling Mosul and would like to extend control over the Nineveh Plain. The reaction of the Peshmerga, notes Father Thabit Mekko, confirms that the Kurds are determined to protect this area from jihadist militants…

There are very real concerns about the possible genocide of Christians in the region. Christians in the country cannot wait for help from the international community.” Read more.

Flashback: ISIS Caliphate Orders Muslim Employers To Fire All Christian Workers, Cuts Off Water To More Christians – “The Islamic State, which sees itself as the restoration of the caliphate to rule all Muslims, immediately imposed anti-Christian rules, ordering Muslim employers to fire Christian workers. The homes of Christian religious leaders were ransacked and occupied by militants. A Christian population as old as the faith shrank from 3,000 families to several hundred in weeks. On July 18, ISIL ordered non-Muslims to convert or pay a tax last imposed during the Ottoman empire. If not, they would face ‘death by the sword’ …” Read more.

Flashback: ISIS Caliphate Forbids Government Workers From Giving Food Rations To Christians – “ISIS has ordered government workers to stop giving rations to Christians and Shiites in Mosul, according to a report by Younes Thonon for ankawa.com. The official in charge of distributing rations in the Rifaq neighborhood said he had received orders from ISIS to cut the rations. Mr. Fadel Younis, the official in charge for the Kifaat neighborhood, said that he had received a similar order and a threat from ISIS, and was warned that if he gives rations to Christians and Shiites he will be charged and prosecuted according to sharia law.” Read more.

    Jesus said follow me. Jesus did not threaten with death. ISIS follows Satan’s way. Why ISIS, WHY? Jesus went around healing drying tears not giving tears.

    Can any of us even imagine what it must be like to have to flee for your life from village to village? My heart breaks for these brothers and sisters. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

      I agree. People have solidified their rebellion against God refusing to do the works of him even when they know what the works of Christ are.
