In blessing all the nations of the earth in Jesus, God has claimed all nations as His people whom His desire is to bless. It is the individuals' choice to respond to or to reject God's initiative to bless them with His own presence. http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/religion/islam/history.html

 

The history of Islam goes back to creation according to the website: http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/religion/islam/history.html

““The word Islam means "submission to God". The Holy Quran describes Islam as an Arabic word Deen (way of life). The followers of Islam are called Muslims. The literal meaning of Muslim is "one who surrenders" or "submits" to the will of God. In order to understand Islam, the basic portrayal of belief in Quran must be considered. According to Quran, those who submit to one God are Muslims. Aisha Y. Musa writes in his article, Jews in the Quran: An Introduction  that, "Islam is the religion of all the prophets from Adam to Noah to Abraham to Moses, Jesus and Mohammad. (10:71-72, 84; 2:128http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/religion/islam/history.html-133; 5:110-112)." Quran also declares that all the prophets who came before Mohammad and their followers were all Muslims. 

“ The origin of Islam dates back to the creation of the world. All the prophets who came to this world preached the same message of believing in one God and to accept them as His messenger. The prophets were also blessed with a manifestation of divine will or truth. Likewise, Prophet Mohammad was also a messenger of God. He revealed the truth and the way of life through the Holy Quran. 

“Before the birth of Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him), the Arab society believed in multiple Gods. Although the Arabs believed in the unity of God, but they also claimed that God has entrusted His duties to various gods, goddesses and idols. For this purpose, they had more than 360 idols. They considered angels as the daughters of God. They were ignorant of social values. They were nomadichttp://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/ religion/islam/history.html people who were http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/religion/islam/history.htmldependent on cattle for their living. There was no government or law. All power existed with the rich. The society was full of barbarity and brutality. Tribes fought with each other over trivial matters for centuries. A slight argument over horses or water could lead to the slaughtering of thousands of innocent people.

“It was the birth of Prophet Mohammad in 570 A.D in the city of Makkah which brought a revolution to the entire fate of the nomadic Arabs. He became famous among the people of Makkah at a very early age because of his allegiance and reliability. He was widely known as Al-Ameen (honest, trustworthy.)”

 

Who are the Arabs?

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_people):

Arab people (Arabic: عربي, ʿarabi) or Arabs (العرب al-ʿarab) are a panethnicity of peoples of various ancestral origins, religious backgrounds and historic identities, whose members, on an individual basis, identify as such on one or more of linguistic, cultural, political, or genealogical grounds.[12] Those self-identifying as Arab, however, rarely do so on their own. Most hold multiple identities, with a more localized prioritized ethnic identity — such as Egyptian, Lebanese, or Yemeni — in addition to further tribal, village and clan identities.

Arabic, the main unifying feature among Arabs, is a Semitic language originating in Arabia. From there it spread to a variety of distinct peoples across most of West Asia and North Africa,[13] resulting in their acculturation and eventual denomination as Arabs. Arabization, a culturo-linguistic shift, was often, though not always, in conjunction with Islamization, a religious shift.

With the rise of Islam in the 7th century, and as the language of the Qur'an, Arabic became the lingua franca of the wider Mediterranean region. It was in this period that Arabic language and culture was widely disseminated with the early Islamic expansion, both through conquest and cultural contact.[14]

Arabic culture and language, however, began a more limited diffusion before the Islamic age, first spreading in West Asia beginning in the 2nd century, as Arab Christians such as the Ghassanids, Lakhmids and Banu Judham began migrating north from Arabia into the Syrian Desert and the Levant.[15][16] Currently, as many as 7.1% up to 10% of Arabic language speakers are Arab Christians. [17]

 

 

The Bible and history records that the Arabs descended from Abraham.

 

Genesis16:15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.

 

God told Abraham that his son Ishmael would become a great nation.

 

Genesis 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.

 

God told Hagar, Ishmael's mother about her first child, Ishmael:

 

Genesis 16:12 And he 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.

 

History has shown the truth of these prophecies concerning the descendants of Ismael.

 

God's role for the children of Ishmael today

 

God has used the nation of Islam in connection with His purposes to bless all nations of the earth. In the time of the early Christian Church, it was the children of Ismael that God used to bring down pagan Rome which was persecuting the early Christians for 1260 years. The end of pagan Rome's persecution of the early Christians in 508AD was followed by Papal Rome's persecution of the Christians during the dark ages for another 1260 years.

 

The reformation from the Dark Ages of Papal supremacy would not have survived had it not been for the role of the children of Ishmael in harassing the Papacy and the armies of Europe that were supporting the Papacy giving the reformation opportunity and time to grow, strengthen, and survive.

 

Today the same pattern is seen in the role of the modern children of Ismael who are being used of God to harass and eventually bring to its knees modern pagan Rome which is ruling the world from Washington, DC in the United States of America. When that happens in the future, history will again repeat and modern pagan Rome falls apart the vacuum will again be filled by modern Papal Rome whoe's deadly wound will by those circumstances have been fully healed.  Papal Rome will get back its power to make religious laws and persecute dissenters and the end of the world will follow in a short time.

 

Now is the time to understand these events and to prepare to resist the false Christ that will come first claiming to be Christ and making claims that agree with and fit politically with the New World Order's agenda for a new one world religion. Now is the time to become wedded spiritually to Jesus day by day for the spiritual wedding is now in progress where Christians who understand the signs of the times are being cleansed from sin by the work of Jesus in the most holy place in the sanctuary in heaven, and by their own diligent efforts to die to self and live for Christ. When the cleansing of His true believers from all sin is accomplished Jesus will return to claim them as His own.

 

Then will come to pass the saying that has been prophesied that true Christians will say when the true Christ returns to earth:

 

Isaiah 25:9 “And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this [is] our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this [is] the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
