HomeThe Arab world in Bible Prophecy By Chaplain Bob Walker Deu 32:25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling [also] with the man of gray hairs I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, [and] lest they should say, Our hand [is] high, and the LORD hath not done all this For they [are] a nation (USA?) void of counsel, neither [is there any] understanding in them. Deu 32:28 Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God. Terror, now that is a word we have heard much of in the news lately. I for one know that the TV and news is violently anti-Christ as well as almost all of its programs. The only truth we will find is in God’s word the HOLY BIBLE and its prophecy. We need to take a look at the Arab world from the eyes of God’s word. Let us go back to genesis (the beginning) and see what it has to say about Abraham. Abraham was married to Sarah his wife and she was barren of children. So Sarah told Abraham to have a child by her handmaiden, Hagar. Now Hagar was an Egyptian woman and She had a son by Abraham who was named Ishmael. Gen 16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto (Hagar) her, Behold, thou [art] with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the “LORD hath heard” thy affliction. Ishmael’s name means the Lord has heard and he was Abraham’s first born son and as a father he greatly loved him. Abraham asked the Lord to make Ishmael the “promised seed” and the Lord said to Abraham. Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. Look at this carefully the Lord said he would Bless Ishmael and make him fruitful and multiply him and with 12 princes make of him a great nation. However he was not to be the promised seed. The Arabic nations are blessed with oil and some very good crop growing areas. Gen 17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his seed after him. Isaac was the promised seed. Now the time came that there was friction in the family of Abraham with his having two sons by two different wives. Well let us continue the story Gen 21:10 Wherefore she (Sarah) said unto Abraham, Cast out this (Hagar) bondwoman and her son: for the son (Ishmael) of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, [even] with Isaac. Now the Lord allowed Sarah’s words to come to pass. Gen 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called So now Hagar and Ishmael were to leave the presence of Abraham, Yet the Lord was to look after his beloved son. Gen 21:15 starts this part of the story And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave [it] unto Hagar, putting [it] on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. Gen 21:16 And she went, and sat her down over against [him] a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against [him], and lift up her voice, and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he [is]. Gen 21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. Gen 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. Gen 21:20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. Gen 21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt. So the Lord had mercy on Ishmael and made a promise to Abraham to make of him a great nation and multiply him. The Arab’s to this day claim descent from Ishmael and Abraham. Look at this promise that God made to Abraham. Gen 17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations So does one nation over in Palestine called Israel fulfill this promise of many nations? Is God able to keep his promises or did he lie? There are over 250 Million Arabs in the world so I say God keeps his promises. There are maybe only 18 million Jews who claim descent from Abraham, so yes I say God kept his promises. Let us take a look at what the Lord said as a prophecy concerning Ishmael. In Gen 16:10 it says And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. This was fulfilled by over 250 million Arab’s today. Gen 16:12 And he (Ishmael) will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. Look at this carefully he was to be a wild man, whose hand was against every man and he was to live among his brothers (Abraham’s children). Now if your pastor says this is not true about the Arabs then whom does it apply to? Does God lie or make promises he cannot keep? I know better than to believe that. Has the Children of Ishmael been wild men and live in the midst of their brethren and have their hands against every man? Yes I would say they have. Let us look at the religion of the Arab’s and contrast it with the Jews and Christians. All of the above claim a belief in one God as opposed to the Hindu’s of India and the old Greek and Romans who had many gods. The Arab’s claim the Koran as their “Bible” it too is a collection of books. One such book in the Koran is Sura and in Chapter 9 verse 5 it states that “Fight and slay the pagans (non-Muslims) wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer (surround with troops) them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war”. This is only one such verse to be found in the Koran. Muslims attacked Europe on a few occasions and wiped out whole Christian cities. The city of Constantinople was completely destroyed by the Muslims and many Christians were killed. Yet the Muslims consider Jesus to be a sinless prophet of God. I agree that he is a sinless prophet and the Son of God as well. Muslims deny Jesus was God the son. Jews also deny Jesus is Christ as well. 1 Jo 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. By Bible definition the Muslims and Jews are antichrist. Jews deny Jesus was born of a virgin and was not sinless. In the time of Christ it was the Jews and the Romans who killed Christians. Let us see what Paul says: 1Th 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they [have] of the Jews: 1Th 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: So here we have both sides of Abraham’s children killing the Christian believers at differing points in the history of the church. Do you want to know a secret? Well look at what the Bible says about who are “Abraham’s Children” Gal 3:29 And if ye [be] Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. After World War II Zionists like Menachem Begin who became prime minister detonated a bomb in a hospital killing patients and doctors and nurses in Jerusalem. I also know Zionists detonated a bomb in the King David Hotel and killed civilians by the scores. This fact of history is forgotten by out TV and media spin (witch) doctors. There is much bloodshed on both sides of the conflict. Arab’s kill Jews and Jews kill Arab’s like the unarmed Palestinian man and his 12 year old son who were just shot to death on international TV years ago. There has been much bloodshed in the Middle East. American made Fighter bombers of the Israeli air force dropped bombs on an Arab elementary school and set fire to children killing around 100 of them. And we wonder why the Arab’s hate us? Without the Spirit of Christ both sides will continue to kill each other. Would Jesus say…Blessed are they that kill elementary school children, blessed are they that support the Zionists in dropping flaming napalm gasoline bombs on children? The so called “Church” of John Hagee would say so. Jesus said to those who denied him: Jhn 8:44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. In Muslim countries they never argue over granting “rights” to sodomites or performing same sex “marriages” and abortion is not legal in any Moslem country. Tel Aviv is the legal Capitol of the Israeli state and they are the “gay capitol” of the middle east having numerous annual gay pride parades. The Arab’s consider the USA the “great Satan”. They have satellite dishes in their country and watch our TV shows including “Jerry Springer” and our sex and violence shows. Without Jesus Muslims are LOST yet they know sodomy and abortion is wrong, what a testimony against the USA. We wave the flag and will we bomb women and children in Afghanistan? I wonder what Jesus would say about us bombing woman and children? It is a shame that the church has turned the resurrection into an Easter egg hunt and traded the Birth of Christ for a satanic x-mas tree. Until we purge the church of such practices Jews and Jehovah’s (false) witnesses as well as Muslims consider us pagans and we will watch them slip into hell without Christ. Do you know the Jews are ready to rebuild the temple and start performing animal sacrifices? 2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. The temple was destroyed in 70 AD and IF my interpretation is correct will be rebuilt according to the Bible prior to the anti-Christ’s appearance. Do you understand what animal sacrifice is in relation to the sacrifice of the shed blood of Jesus? It says that the blood of Christ was shed in vain according to man. This is sheer blasphemy as the Jews seek to build the temple. Many so called churches are assisting in this project for the temple to be built and then shall the antichrist come according to the Bible. Hbr 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us]. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Christ died for you and His Children in whatever country they are in. America we need to REPENT and cry out to God, He is withdrawing his blessings and protections from us. If we will not have Christ as Lord then maybe God will let us have Satan or maybe let Satan have us? Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
