The Arabic letter "N" or "Nasara" is the marking that has been used by demons calling themselves ISIS or ISIL to mark the homes of Christians demanding that they convert to Islam or die.
In a Sunday March 22nd show of CBS's 60 Minutes, it was outlined that this letter was being used as a marking to persecute Christians, but somehow, in all the journalism, the piece did not outline why this letter was being used and what this letter stood for as it pertains to religious persecution.
On February 26th in Washington DC, Mr. Frank Gaffney, Director of The Center For Security Policy, briefed both myself and other pastors from around the country on the use of "Nasara" in the ISIS persecution. In this case the letter stands for "Nazarine". This would refer to Jesus or a Jesus follower, eg: a Christian. To be marked with this mark, means that you are a Jesus follower and that you and your family will die, if you do not convert to Islam. In other words, for these demons, being a Christian is also a way of being marked for death.
In a reversion back to medieval times, the Islamic State has decided to kill anyone and everyone who doesn't agree with not only their political aspirations, but also their theology. It is clear to see that these murders are devils, led of the devil himself. We know from scripture that the devil seeks rest but finds none. There persecution is not simply designed for the middle east nor is it simply for Christians. The persecution of these devils is designed for anyone and everyone, even those who do not believe in God at all. The evil that this group espouses is for the fulfillment of world domination and control and subjugation of everyone under the laws and rule of shariah as interpreted by them. This is a serious and expansive persecution, and one that we only study and read about in history and historical narratives. In light of all this, I wonder is the church really ready to deal with this sort of thing?
