Twenty-three Christian families were reportedly unable to escape from Raqqa and are now trapped in the ISIS stronghold. The families are now facing Islamic extremism and will be forced to pay ISIS’ “protection tax.”

Some Christians were unable to flee due to finances; others could not leave because poor health or old age prevented travel.

The Christian Post reports that the families will be subject to the protection tax of $535 in a few days. Some of the families will not be able to afford to pay and be evicted from their homes.

ISIS also continues to implement strict Sharia law in the region and has converted Raqqa’s churches into offices for the promotion of Islamic extremism.

Munir S. Kakish, chairman of the Council of Local Evangelical Churches in the Holy Land said,
“In my opinion this is a very grave situation. No western leader is moving to stop such a tragedy but they offer only empty words with no actions.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
