As the unending spate of religious uprising from the Islamic State fighters continue to ensue, with mass slaughtering and beheading of Christians and others, some of its members are reportedly having encounters with Christ.
According to a Middle East missionary, ‘Julian’ a sheik who served as a jihadist teacher for ISIS has turned to the Bible because he became “sick of the killing.”
The testimony was shared online via the Operation Mobilization missionary on the Voice of the Martyrs radio show.
Julian said the sheik was traveling home from Lebanon when he asked a taxi driver for a Bible.
“The taxi driver knew a Christian in Beirut who was very happy to give the guy with the beard a Bible and then, ‘Sir, would you like to tell us why you’re looking for a Bible?’ And his response was ‘I’m from Saudi. I’m a sheikh,’ which means a teacher of Islam,” Julian recounted the story.
“‘I’ve been in Syria teaching the ISIS fighters jihad 101,’ the theology and the practice of jihad. ‘I’m sick of the killing. There must be something better than this.'”
VOM explained, “He had come to see that the violence of ISIS was not the path to peace. He was tired of it; he wanted something else, and so he was interested in having a Bible. “
The story of the Sheik is the latest of several reports about jihadists either converting to Christianity, or desiring to learn more about the faith, as growing number of jihadists around the world were reported to have apostate to Christ after having a dream or vision of Jesus.
