“And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God.” -Revelation 20:4
Scripture is clear that beheading has been used against Christians for thousands of years, and not only will it continue, it will become a chosen form of execution of the martyrs.
When ISIS brutally beheaded 21 Coptic Christians, spilling their innocent blood into the sea, they fulfilled their infamous Nasheed, the cultish chant that sounds in the group’s propaganda videos.
Theodore Shoebat translates:
If unbelief (in Islam) waved as the froth (of the sea) we will fill the plains red crimson blood … we walked dark nights, to slice and slaughter, with the blade of vengeance that poisons whom [our] anger is upon.
Although Muhammad set the example of devout Islam when he said, “I have been made triumphant through terror,” no evil Islamic tactic was enough to divert the zealous Christians from the faith.
In the video, the hostages are seen feverishly whispering in their final hour, but it’s their chosen words that put us in awe.
Bishop Antonios Aziz Mina of Giza acknowledged that “in the moment of their barbaric execution,” the Christians were repeating the words “Lord, Jesus Christ,” the Catholic Philly reports.
Some screamed “Yeshua,” the name of Jesus in their moment of suffering.
“The name of Jesus was the last word on their lips,” said Bishop Mina, and we can believe that was the first word on their lips as they entered eternity.
Allah commands brutality and warns against mercy, saying, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you.”
There is no doubt that ISIS is the most devout to Islam, following Allah’s and Muhammad’s commands in the purest and most literal form, as was carried out in the Muslim conquests for centuries.
The time for denying Islam’s guilt in the Islamic State’s atrocities is over. We must identify that the fundamentals of Islam are indeed political and tyrannical, and they have brainwashed its followers into fulfilling a bloody Caliphate. The very scriptures ISIS quotes to justify this savagery cannot be misinterpreted as anything other than a call to physically war with unbelievers.
Islam must never coexist, because Muslims “must not take the Jews and Christians as friends.” Instead, Allah promises his followers, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”
The Islamists shout “Allahu akbar” to call the attention of their god to bless their obedience, while the followers of the true religion of peace cry out to their God to seal their salvation.
Muslims call on Allah to invoke death; Christians call on Jesus to invoke life.
Share the incredible testimony of these 21 martyrs, that their deaths might inspire, combating the glamorization of such evil.
