Blessings on Ishmael | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 5 –

Blessings on Ishmael

A lot of unfortunately ignorant pastors, right wing watchers, and muslim imams are speaking against The Call, saying its divisive because we are doing something against muslims. We are not against muslims, we are for muslims being saved from sin by Jesus Christ and stepping into their full blessing and calling as the sons of Abraham!

God told Abraham that He would bless all the nations of the earth through His family. That includes not only Isaac – but Ishmael. It includes not only Jacob – but Esau! It includes Jews and Gentiles, and every nation of the earth.

Jesus Christ is the seed of Abraham that God uses to bless every people group of the earth. Instead of keeping a bunch of religious laws, we get to trust in the fact that Jesus hung on a tree for us and took our punishment as the lamb of God. That is part of the blessing of Abraham that is for everyone!

13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written , Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3

I was preaching the gospel earlier this week, I had a couple of conversations with some very religious people. One was into Sikkhism – he worked for his church, tried to do right, and everything, but he knew he wasn’t clean from all his sins, and he was just hoping that he was good enough for his god to let him in. Another group was Muslim – they didn’t even know if they were going to heaven, or what level of they were going into, but they were very devout.

Jesus came to give you The Way! He is the only guaranteed Truth, and Life. No one gets to the Father but by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is a True Prophet, and this is what He said. So that makes Him more than a Prophet. If this wasn’t true, that would make Him a false Prophet.

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way *, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. – Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

The Blessing of Ishmael

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. Genesis 17

Even though God brought the Messiah Jesus Christ through Isaac, Jacob, and the Jews – God put a special blessing on the sons of Ishmael.  Twelve princes, (national leadership), and a great people group. Many of the muslim nations consist of the sons of Ishmael. They are blessed.

But a much greater Eternal blessing is coming when they come to salvation through Christ and get rid of their dependence on the false prophet Muhammed. Jesus Christ is the only offering of sinless blood that can wash away the sins of Ishmael, Esau, Israel, and every other nation of the earth.

The World Is Not Worthy of You | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 29 –

The World Is Not Worthy of You

 

The Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11 talks about Moses, who refused to be identified with Egypt (which represents the world system).

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; 25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. 27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured , as seeing him who is invisible.

This is an encouragement to those who, like Moses, forsake the ways of the world, not fearing the wrath of the kings of this world. You would rather have the reproach of Christ than the treasures in Egypt. Because you see the heavenly reward in the future. Your Faith is Real. You are a prisoner of hope. You are not looking for honor in man’s eyes, but you are a Nazirite, set in heart to see God’s glory alone. The world is not worthy of you. The Hall of Faith continues in Hebrews 11.

38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect

The world system is still exactly the same. From torturing those in Hebrews 11, to killing Christians in Roman Colliseums, to the literal deathly persecution that is prevalent in the world today. Even the financial and media “persecution-lite” that you get in America. They kill and persecute those that stay true to God’s truth. They only accept those that compromise, copy the world, and mix the holy with the profane. But you have overcome the world. God is providing something better for you. Just like the prisoner of hope, you will get double! Keep praying and preaching the truth, and saying no to the world, and yes to the Kingdom of God.
