We knew this was coming:
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
And the message to those who have created this scenario?
It is written: "'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'"
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
The fanatical jihadis are sending teams of trained killers into camps disguised as refugees to kidnap and kill vulnerable Christians.
But refugees are terrified to report many of the killings in case they are targeted next, according to aid workers.
The horrifying tactic emerged after one terrorist got cold feet and renounced jihad after witnessing Christians helping out other refugees within the camp.
He then revealed that he had been sent with an Islamist hit squad to eliminate Christians as part of the hate group's ideological drive to wipe the religion off the map.
Express.co.uk has revealed how Christianity could disappear from the Middle East within five years as fanatical fundamentalists ramp up their campaign of persecution.
An aid worker at a Unite4d Nations (UN) run camp in Jordan, who did not wish to be named for fear of reprisals, revealed that the jihadis are also kidnapping young refugee girls to sell on as sex slaves.
He said: "The Muslim gangs come as refugees, but they have their agendas.
"They're like a mafia. People are even killed inside the camps, and the refugees are afraid to say if they saw somebody get killed. If you ask them, they'll say, 'I don't know, I was asleep.'"
Britain has pledged to take 20,000 people in from such camps in the last five years.
But there are fears that hundreds of jihadis could disguise themselves as refugees in a bid to reach the UK, where they will plot terror attacks on our streets.
The aid worker told the Christian Post: "The last time I went inside a camp, I had a policeman with me.
"The camps are dangerous because they have IS, Iraqi militias and Syrian militias. It's another place for gangs.
"They're killing inside the camps, and they're buying and selling ladies and even girls."
ISIS is believed to have executed thousands of Christians in Iraq and Syria who have refused to renounce their faith.
When the terror group conquered the city of Mosul, in northern Iraq, it gave Christians 24 hours to either leave or face a gruesome death.
But it appears that not all ISIS fighters are immune to the horrors the group's commanders order them to inflict.
The aid worker told how one terrorist from northern Syria, who was sent to a camp in Jordan to kill Christians, renounced his jihad after "witnessing the love of the Christians".
He said: "He first saw how Islam brainwashed him about Christianity, and how that contrasted with the reality of what he saw in the Christians.
"And we're talking about an area of Jordan that has three Salafist [a strict, fundamentalist branch of Sunni Islam] mosques. They raise up people to go and fight."
The jihadi was reportedly so enthusiastic about his new religion he had to be hidden away to prevent him from being killed by ISIS militants furious at his conversion.
At least 1,800 Christians have been brutally murdered by Islamist fanatics in Iraq since 2003, whilst 100,000 were forced to flee Mosul in one night when ISIS captured the city.
The 'Arab Spring' - which was initially celebrated by Western leaders across the globe - has unleashed a wave of persecution against Christians across North Africa and the Middle East.
The Archbishop of Aleppo, in Syria, recently warned that Christianity could be wiped out in the region in just five years if Islamist fanatics including ISIS are allowed to carry on their campaign of persecution unchecked.
They’re marked for extermination in the Middle East. They’re banned from practicing their faith in many nations around the world. They’ve been subjected to violence, intimidation and hatred from the very beginnings of the faith until the present day.
Christians are no strangers to persecution. But such treatment largely hasn’t erupted in the United States of America. Until now.
"American Christians need to prepare for persecution," Carl Gallups told WND TV. The former law enforcement professional and pastor of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church argued Christians are increasing being "targeted" for both political harassment and outright violence.
And he's written a new book, "Be Thou Prepared: Equipping the Church for Persecution And Times of Trouble," designed to prepare believers for the dark times ahead.
Gallups cited several disturbing trends he believes will prove a threat to American Christians.
"We've got a huge Islamic influx and we've got radical agendas including the radical abortion movement. That movement has just been exposed in videos and they're angry. We've also got the radical homosexual movement and now the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage."
Gallups argues political and cultural opposition to Christianity is likely to intensify in coming years. He warns individual believers may find their businesses targeted for destruction by politically motivated activists, especially homosexual rights protesters.
"There's not really a concern by the current administration for the victims, the deepest concern is for the agenda," Gallups argued. And the Obama administration's agenda, Gallups intoned, was to attack the Second Amendment Rights of law abiding citizens.
The situation is especially dire, Gallups argues, because of an increasing terrorist threat against churches and Christians in particular.
"We have an ISIS presence in all fifty states according to the FBI," Gallups warned. Thus, Christians are right to fear "direct persecution, or, in some cases, death."
Gallups said political persecution and violent attacks are simply part of a larger, united effort to undermine Christianity and attack believers.
"America, and particularly Christian America, is increasingly understanding one of the premises of my book is that there is an increase in the targeting of Christians in America and it's a part of this long process of degradation," Gallups said. "You lampoon them first, and then you get to the point where eventually it's outlawed. People see this slide and they see where we are."
Gallups says Christians can take comfort in the church's long experience with persecution and look to history for lessons to apply today.
"What I've tried to do with God's help in this book is to see what's coming," Gallups told WND TV. "I can look at history. I go all the way back to the early church and deal with what they dealt with and deal with the biblical principles that bring us up to today."
The Islamic State group has published its first-ever video in Hebrew on Friday, in which a masked member of the terror group threatens that "not one Jew will remain in Jerusalem" or Israel.
Dressed in full army regalia and speaking with an Arabic accent, the ISIS member addresses "the Jews occupying the Muslims" to inform them that "the real war has not yet begun and everything you have seen until now is only a child's game," he said, invoking a Hebrew idiom.
"Do what you want in the meantime, but then we will make you pay ten times over," he said.
The masked Islamist then taunts Israel over the recent string of terror attacks, saying "look what happens to you after a number of stabbing and car attacks from our brothers in Palestine. You've been turned on your head," he said, using the Hebrew slang for losing control.
"You're afraid of every speeding driver and every person holding something in their hand," he said.
In wake of the recent string of attacks and increasing violence, ISIS launched an unprecedented media campaign calling on Palestinians to step up attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians, taking advantage of a wave of violence between the two sides to deliver rare incitement against Israel.
In a video posted Monday, the group urged Palestinians to carry out attacks using every means at their disposal, including knives, vehicles, poison and explosives.
ISIS has no organized presence in the West Bank or Gaza Strip. But dozens of Palestinians in Gaza are believed to be inspired by the group's extremist ideology, seeing Gaza's Islamic militant Hamas rulers as too soft.
