God’s TimingPaul observed in Rom 11:25 that Israel had “experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.” As we follow God’s spirit to start discipling movements among all the Gentiles, perhaps God is lifting a hardening from the spiritual descendants of Ishmael in preparation for a great turning among the Jews as well. May it be so! http://www.missionfrontiers.org/issue/article/why-are-muslims-coming-to-jesus-like-never-before
It's also true that many from the West are joining ISIS. Here's why, and how we either contribute to that problem or help avert it:https://soundcloud.com/mnncloud/e3-partners-tom-doyle-on-isis-prevention-may-27-2015
But, Diane. Are you lumping anti-dispensationalists with ISIS? I don't quite understand your comment. Like Isaac’s children Jacob and Esau, we shouldn't be fighting over the birthright but rather sharing the blessing (Christ).
Julius, This report by Tom Doyle describes why so many are heading to the Middle East to join ISIS. It's worth hearing! And, yes, our willingness to share "the blessing" can help avert this trend. Diane
Amen, Diane. I will listen to it.
Wow! Thanks for the audio! That is exactly how Christians should act! God is bringing a lot of people to the Christian church in America and those who are not racist will minister to them. Not only muslims but also Catholics from Mexico, Latin American and South American countries are coming to America. We have a great opportunity to minister Christ to them regardless of the political wars in this world. I think there is huge spiritual vacuum with these groups that the Lord wants to fill with Himself through His Church. Tom Doyle says this is a very open people group and the one thing that attracts them is the Love of Jesus through these believers.
Glad you were blessed by the video! God's ways are best! Diane
