ISIS spy gives his life to Jesus Christ

According to CBN News, a miraculous encounter happened at Pastor Ghassan Thomas’ church in Turkey, where he fled after Islamists threatened him and his family.

It was that day an ISIS spy was sent to his church. Little did either man know, God already had a plan in motion.

A man identified simply as Mohammed told the rest of the story.

“Hello my dear brothers,” he began before explaining his job as an ISIS spy.

“In that time, I think in this way: I should kill. I should do many bloody things just to be close with my Allah,” he admitted, describing how the blood lust fuels the Islamic State.

“For sure it will be more and more since it’s in the Koran,” Mohammed continued. “If you are not a Muslim, you need to be a Muslim or we should kill you and take your everything – financial, women and everything. This is in the Koran.”

Mohammed was a devout Muslim who honored the Koran. He was an obedient man who listened when his parents told him to flee to Turkey in the wake of Sunni ISIS and Shiite militia fights.

When ISIS sent him to spy on Pastor Thomas’ church, Mohammed saw the opportunity to enter Turkey without enraging his ISIS brothers.

Once at the church, he was surprised to be welcomed by those he hated. It was then God struck.

“I saw the people, how they welcomed me and they don’t know me,” Mohammed recalled. “And I hate those people and they show me love.

“When they pray for me, I start to cry like a child. And I feel like something come out of my body – very heavy. When I finished the service, I went home, but there is a person walk[ing] with me, just talking, but I feel like I’m not on the earth.

“I said, ‘am I flying? I don’t feel like I’m walking. Like someone carry me.'”

Mohammed described how he began to read the Bible and compared its message to the Koran’s.

“I went there and discovered this is the God I’m trying to find. This is the true God. This is what I want for my life,” he explained.

After turning to Christ, the former ISIS spy revealed a warning.

“Do you think there’s a great danger to Europe right now? For sure! It’s a huge thing. They should wake up.”

Stunning Patron Saint Medals

Pastor Thomas believes God will continue to change the hearts of ISIS Muslims and acknowledged the need for more missionaries in Europe.

“For this reason, we need some people [to] come and serve God in Europe with the refugees, just to wake them up – to be against what ISIS do.”
