Major ISIS Leader Sets Up Meeting With Christian TV Host Planning To Slaughter Him, The Host Witnesses The Gospel To Him And He Leaves Islam And Is Now A Christian


A major leader for ISIS was looking to make a high-profile murder of a famous Christian TV ministry host. He claimed to be interested in learning about Christianity and wanted to meet the host so he could kill him. Instead, he ended up getting converted after hearing the Gospel:

After watching Leading The Way’s satellite TV channel, he had a plan, according to Michael Youssef’s ministry.

That plan: to kill a member of Leading the Way’s follow-up team.

“Muhammad called the number on the screen. ‘I need to meet with you,’ he told Peter*, one of Leading The Way’s follow-up team leaders,” according to the ministry.

For security purposes, the ministry is strategic about vetting callers before meeting with them in person. But follow-up team leader Peter discerned God’s voice urging him, “This time is different. Go and meet this man—and be bold with him.”

According to the ministry, Peter met with Muhammad and boldly proclaimed the gospel to him. After they parted ways, the ministry reports, God continued to speak to Muhammad, revealing Himself in a dream and bringing great conviction upon him.

“He shaved his beard—the symbol of his radical devotion to Islam,” the ministry reports. “He decided to follow Christ. And he reached out to Peter once more, desperate to meet with him.”

“Peter, I have a confession,” Muhammad told him. “The first time I was going to meet you, I intended to kill you, and I am sorry.”

With that, Leading the Way reports, the ISIS leader fell on his face and repented before the Lord.

“This former ISIS leader is now your brother in Christ,” the ministry says. “His conversion happened just weeks ago, and by God’s mercy and grace, he is already serving Christ where he lives. Only God can change an ISIS leader. Only God can transform hearts—and yet we are blessed to join Him in His work of reaching the lost with the Good News of Jesus Christ. (source)

Like I have said before and I will keep saying, no matter how evil these guys are, we have to pray and make sacrifices for Muslims just like this man because there are a lot more out there- just like how Walid once was.

Christ came to give us new life. This Christmas, help give the gift of a new life to a Christian in need. Please donate to the Rescue Christians Project.

    This truth reminded me of a powerful autobiography I read a couple of years ago about a Catholic Rwandan genocide survivor titled ‘Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Genocide’:

    God Bless

      Yes, there are evangelists also to these areas, like the wonderful Reinhard Boenke, whose book is amazing also. It is inspiring to hear of those who sacrificed comforts of life to save the souls of others!

        It is a horrific example of how humans who make ethnic tribalism their god can descend into a savagery that’s worse than animals. It was a protestant pastor, sorry can’t remember the denomination, who saved Immaculee and the women she was sheltered with. We had our fair share of heroes and martyrs. There were other Protestants and Catholics alike, including priests and pastors, who gave into the tribalism and became savages (going against God and their faith).
        It’s a shame we aren’t taught these lessons in the west. We take for granted the society and culture God through Christianity has blessed us with, that’s why it’s presently dying.

        Maybe the most important lesson to take away from this story is that even if a nation descends into barbarism God can and will bless those who remain faithful to Him with the “Grace” to be faithful until the end, whether they miraculously survive like Immaculee, or courageously die like most of her family members.

        Another important lesson we can learn is that even savages are human and they can be broken. Many of the Hutsu’s have sincerely repented in the months and years since through the light of Christian charity, faith and forgiveness.

    Michael Yussef is doing amazing things. Here is his message on Christmas Eve from The Church of the Apostles in Atlanta.

    • mspip

      he is on tv. don’t watch him often but he seems to be legit unlike some of them that are always wanting money etc.

      • Grandmere

        He is from Egypt. I have been inside his church twice. It is beautiful. Wiki has a little article about his Christian tenets. He’s a solid guy.

  • Wilma Mills

    How can he be truly saved, unless we’re saved by faith in response to hearing gospel preaching ?!? Which we are !!!!! All Glory to God !!!!!

  • Ceirwyn

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Praise be to God!!! Now get the rest …

  • Michelle Therese

    That is amazing!

    That is because you value your earthly life more than Christ’s great commission and the eternal soul of others. Luke 17:33 tells us how short-sighted that is:”Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.” There isn’t room in heaven for the selfish; think CAREFULLY about your soul and what God asks of us in this life, brother!

    Christ commands us:” Matthew 28:19 ‘”Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit”.The internet makes this possible as do donations to organizations who risk everything to witness to communist and Muslim nations.
    And your daily, earnest prayer: .Matt 5:44 “But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!”.

    The Great Commission is NOT OPTIONAL, sir, :
    Matt 7: 20-23 “: 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

  • Grace Ziem

    Yes, but Muslims are lost sheep, and they are seeking. It is our job to help them, not kick them!

  • Grace Ziem

    Robert, where is your compassion? You are lucky to have heard the gospel; WHAT DO YOU DO to be sure as many Muslims hear the gospel as you can afford? (They are seeking a god, it is not their fault they have been given false information; that was the work of Satan, who deceived Mohammed at the beginning.
    You fail to have Christ’s compassion for others, fail to pray for your enemy as Christ commands; I would be worried about my soul if I lived like that, brother. Or do you not even know your Bible to be aware of how many commands you are breaking?

  • Grandmere

    Mecca is going to get it alright, but it will not be the Christians who do it. It will be Muslims.

  • Grandmere

    Do you trust Walid Shoebat??? Maybe you are new here so I will cut you some slack until you do some homework to see who he is and why you should trust a former Muslim.
