People will come to the Lord from the Arab nations
Isaiah 18:7 -
In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
If one recollects before the Arab-spring started the Lord had given us a message of it and had also given us an indication that it would last for about 4 years. Today we are entering the 3rd year of the Arab spring and we are seeing things are getting murkier, one fighting against another and the whole Arab nation is divided into groups which are fighting each other in different countries.
Let me expound on some words in today's scripture before I come to its message.
Isaiah 18:7 - In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people deferred and scoured and from a people fearful from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
We see today more and more Christians are waking up to the evil named 'Islam' and realizing no longer they can sit down and just observe and sigh over this religion while it spreads across the world. If we look at world statistics this religion has maximum count in places where Christians are fewer. Largest numbers of Muslims dwell in Asia with Pakistan, India and Indonesia together having more Muslims than in the Middle-East or the African subcontinent. Now with Christians in Asia waking up and more and more taking up Apologetics we will soon see Islam getting wiped out from the face of this world.
God on His part is working directly in the Middle-East and one may say how. If one reads scriptures the Lord promised His people that He would send before them locusts into the enemy's land and clear the land for them so as enable them to dwell in it. If one studies locust - they symbolize hurts. When Arab-spring started people thought they were fighting for democracy but today we see the fight has nothing to do with democracy but with sectarianism. Hurts that were existing as long as 1000 to 1200 years back, have suddenly cropped up in a big way and are causing them to destroy their own land, and each other, eating into their nation as a plaque.
Today the Lord is telling us by the end of the Arab-spring we will see many will accept Christ and come to the knowledge of the Truth. These will not be ordinary Christians but will be mighty warriors for the kingdom of God.
To some extend this work has already started and some of the Arab countries which are still not got involved in the Arab-spring have started to take notice of this activity. To stop this they are thinking of ways to reduce the presence of Christians in their land so planning to increase Zakat which is a tax which a non-Muslim pays to the state so as to be allowed to follow their religion in an Islamic country. This increase is going to be not small but big so that most immigrants (who are the ones evangelising) will be discouraged to live there and thus go to their own countries. Others are directly removing immigrants on some or other pretext.
Let us rejoice and thank the Lord for the harvest He is going to give us from among the Muslim nations and the souls who are going to be saved from being perished due to vanity.
