Benjamin Watson: Rise Of ISIS Sign Of Christ’s Soon Return

Benjamin Watson, the NFL player whose statements on Ferguson went massively viral, is now speaking out on ISIS and the soon coming of the Lord.

Watson made news headlines last November when he said sin is the root of racism. He was later cut off during a CNN interview after he started glorifying Christ. Watson’s latest concern: the images that keep flooding our timelines and newsfeeds. He points to men being burned alive or beheaded by masked assassins. He talks of stories of families on the run, fleeing their homes while they are pillaged and burned. He said their testimonies hold a familiar chord: “Convert, Pay or Die!”

“The persecution of Christians is not a new concept. As early as the first century we read about the Spirit-filled boldness of Christians like Stephen and Paul who proclaimed the gospel through beatings and imprisonment, torture and death,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “We remember Christ’s disciples, most of whom were killed just like their master. Roman emperors like Nero, executed Christians in the most ghastly ways, using them as torches to light the evening sky.”
