Charisma News reports – It seems like almost every day we read about ISIS parading people in cages, beheading Christians or kidnapping dozens of believers and making threats against shopping malls. No wonder Jesus warned that in the last days we would see “men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth” (Luke 21:16).
Chris Mitchell, Middle East Bureau Chief for CBN News, isn’t surprised by any of it. In his recently released Destination Jerusalem: ISIS, Convert or Die, Christian Persecution and the Coming Days Ahead, Mitchell discusses the rising evil of Islam. In part three of this exclusive interview, Mitchell shared his thoughts on the ISIS ripple effect.
Charisma News: How do the events taking place in the Middle East reverberate to the shores of America?
Mitchell: America is now in the midst of a national debate on how to deal with ISIS. The outcome of that national debate will affect our future, our economy and our way of life.
It will have a direct impact on our service men and women in the armed forces, our sons and daughters. It will likely influence the price of oil and certainly have an impact on our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel.
Suddenly it’s not just “over there”; it’s “over here.” What these Islamic terrorists are doing is sowing fear just as the Quran encourages them to do. We need to resist this fear. We’re facing a dangerous future when fear will be prevalent.
In Destination Jerusalem, I suggest a number of ways to prepare for the days ahead. We need to as Jesus said, “Watch and pray.”
We need to draw close to the Lord, our families and our church family. We need to be informed about the world and, like the Sons of Issachar in the Bible, “understood the times.” The book also includes the gospel, so it’s also a book someone can give to a loved one who doesn’t yet know the Lord.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- 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 "
