Mighty.la’s video produced by Rise Media Missionaries, powerfully communicates a translated letter from the People of the Cross to ISIS, for everyone to witness the truthful message about Jesus Christ and what real Christianity is.
The People of the Cross celebrate what the cross signifies: the eternal defeat of brutal, denigrating, state-sponsored terror.
Unlike Muslims who kill because of alleged insults to their prophet Muhammad, Christians celebrate Jesus Christ’s indescribable humiliation, persecution, beating, and death—because he overcame it, for eternity.
People of the Cross don’t riot, burn, loot, or kill after learning that bibles and churches are burned and Christians are murdered. They sing even in jail. “The blood of the martyrs,” as Tertullian said, is still “the seed of church.”
The church does not die even in death—it’s witness contagiously knows no bounds proclaiming what Christ Crucified actually means. Including loving and praying for the very people who seek to kill them.
The letter’s message could not more clearly evidence that of Jesus Christ’s. To fully absorb this truth, watch the video.
A Letter from the People of the Cross to ISIS
The world is talking about you.
Your apocalyptic dreams and spectacular sins
Are now awakening the Middle East.
In your holy war, come to holy ground.
Come children of Abraham come,
The people of the cross gather at your gates with a message:
Like a rush of wind grazing over the pacific,
From hills of the Mount of Olives to the desert winds of Jordan,
From the cedars of Lebanon to the silk roads of the East,
An army comes. With no tanks or soldiers,
But an army of martyrs faithful unto death,
Carrying a message of life.
The people of the cross
Come to die at your gates.
If you won’t hear our message with words,
Then we will show you with our lives
For every throat you slit and every woman you rape,
For every man you burn and every child you turn to dust,
There is blood on your hands brother.
But Come Brothers Come!
Come with your bloodstained hands,
Come with your eyes full of murder for the people of the Cross,
Come lay your guns and your knives at the foot of the cross,
A love that is overdue and overwhelming,
Breathes through your cities.
Though your sins are like scarlet,
They can be washed white as snow,
Though you call yourselves servants,
He will make you into Sons,
Where can you run from His love?
Even the darkness cannot hide you!
Come Brothers Come,
There is the sound of a rushing rain,
To remove your sins and bind your wounds,
You die for your god but our God died for us,
The King of Kings comes to be the sacrificial lamb,
Slain on the altar where we should have been,
Jesus Christ, Isa Al Masih,
Walks through the Middle East.
There is forgiveness tonight oh brother!
There is healing for your sins oh brother!
We are no different.
Apart from Christ, we are no better than the worst jihadist,
Christ has been crucified once and for All.
To make sinners like you and me into brothers.
