Ep. 159 – Restoration of Isaac and Ishmael

Perhaps when people hear my name or ministry, they think of Pakistan and the Middle East. This area and group of people have been the focus of my mission for almost 30 years, but the Lord has recently started to sharpen and adjust that focus. 

Just a few months ago, the Holy Spirit spoke to me, in what almost seemed like an audible voice, with the clear instruction to reconcile Isaac and Ishmael. “Reconcile Ishmael and Isaac?” This may sound like mission impossible from the natural standpoint, but biblically speaking, Jesus will not return until this reconciliation takes place. The Apostle Paul talks about this in Romans 11, explaining how the Lord will use the Gentiles to ignite a jealousy within His people, Israel, leading to their salvation.

Over the last 30 years of my ministry life, I have had the privilege of attending thousands of churches of different denominations and backgrounds all over the world. I’ve found that it’s common that people honor Jews but struggle to love Muslims not realizing that it’s their salvation that will lead the Jews to Jesus. It’s my hope that as you listen to this week’s podcast that you will hear and understand the Father’s desire for these two nations.
