ISIS Tortures, Kills 12 Christians As They Recited The Lord’s Prayer For Refusing to Convert To Islam
“The martyrs were faithful to the very end; right before one woman was beheaded by the terror group, she appeared to be smiling slightly as she said, ‘Jesus!'” The Beast is killing Christians for Allah’s glory, yet through it all it is Christ who is being glorified …
Matthew 10:22, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”
Revelation 20:4, “… And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

By Leah Marieann Klett, The Gospel Herald – “Twelve Christians have been brutally executed by the Islamic State, including the 12-year-old son of a Syrian ministry team leader who had planted nine churches, because they refused to renounce the name of Jesus Christ and embrace Islam. The martyrs were faithful to the very end; right before one woman was beheaded by the terror group, she appeared to be smiling slightly as she said, ‘Jesus!’
According to Christian Aid Mission, a humanitarian group which assists indigenous Christian workers in their native countries, the horrific murders took place on August 28 in an unnamed village outside Aleppo, Syria.
‘In front of the team leader and relatives in the crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the boy and severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam,’ Christian Aid revealed, according to a report from Morning Star News. ‘When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion.’
They were killed for refusing to return to Islam after embracing Christianity, as were the other eight aid workers, including two women, according to Christian Aid. The eight were taken to a separate site in the village and asked if they would return to Islam. However, after they refused to renounce Christ, the women, ages 29 and 33, were raped before the crowd summoned to watch, and then all eight were beheaded.
They prayed as they knelt before the Islamic State militants, according to the ministry leader Christian Aid assists, who spoke with relatives and villagers while visiting the site. ‘Villagers said some were praying in the name of Jesus, others said some were praying the Lord’s Prayer, and others said some of them lifted their heads to commend their spirits to Jesus,’ the ministry director told Christian Aid. ‘One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, ‘Jesus!”
In a manner reflective of Christ’s crucifixion, the bodies of those killed were then hung on crosses for display.” Read more.
How Revelation’s Predictive Biblical Prophecy Foresaw Islamic Teachings – “According to the Qur’an in suras 3:31, 4:80 and 48:10, to follow the ‘prophet’ Mohammed is to follow and worship Allah. As the most sacred of men in Islam and an ‘excellent example’ for Muslims to follow, Mohammed remains the personification of Jihad as an act of worship … Today we can read Islamist material online and in print from organizations like Al-Qaeda and ISIS praising terrorism and urging more attacks against those who do not worship Allah. We see Al-Shabaab terrorists attacking and killing people for not professing allegiance to Allah. The Islamic State continues capturing and forcing sex slaves to convert to Islam and worship Allah while offering others the chance to convert to Islam and worship Allah before killing them. As one ISIS recruiter explains, ‘It is every Muslim’s duty to fight those of a different belief until only Allah is worshiped around the world.'” Read more.
