If you keep up with current world events at all you are likely aware that the ISIS(Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)are on the offensive in an attempt to gain control of the nation of Iraq.The ISIS method of achieving this is to make a surprise attack,inflict maximum casualties and spread fear before withdrawing without suffering heavy losses.Isis is highly fanatical, killing Shia Muslims and Christians whenever possible.

So you might ask what in the world does any of this have to do with me?Well as a Christian this interests me greatly because of the effect that ISIS is having on decimating the Christian population in Iraq,not to mention the mass slaughter of innocents who simply want to go about living their lives as peaceably as possible.

During the past 11 years nearly half of Iraq’s Christians have fled the country to escape frequent attacks by Muslim militants targeting them and their churches.In leaving,Christians are abandoning communities that date back to the first centuries of Christianity,including Chaldean, Assyrian and Armenian churches.

So why is any of this important and what does it have to do with you? It’s important because the demise of Christianity we are witnessing in Iraq will no doubt eventually spread to all Middle Eastern countries.If you are a student of prophecy you will no doubt grasp the significance of this as it relates to the coming war for world domination.

The Christian church in Iraq is in serious trouble.Please join me in praying for these persecuted brothers and sisters,as well as the many thousands of innocent people in harms way.

Be blessed,

Ron
