What Christians Need to Know About Muslims
Four thousand years ago, Abraham cried out to God, “if only Ishmael might live under your blessing”. this hear-rending plea of a father for his son touched God’s heart, and He replied, “And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him… I will make him into a great nation” … but my covenant will I establish with Isaac …” (Genesis 17:20,21).
Today, the spiritual sons of Ishmael are called Muslims — the people of Islam. Over 1.5 billion Muslims are scattered around the world, and they are still outside the Covenant. They have been blessed in a material sense, submitted to God, but not to His Son.”
