Apocalyptic Evangelism—Letting All the Nations Hear at the End of Days
Part 3 continued from September 10th
So what is really going on in the world of Islam? Here are just what the local Arabic newspapers are reporting country-by-country:
MORROCCO: In July of 2005 Josh MacDowell was invited to speak at an open stadium filled with 80,000 young people. He preached the Gospel. Later the newspapers reported that there are 25-40,000 Moroccans who have become followers of Jesus Christ. Even if they exaggerated the numbers, it only shows how fast the church is growing in this North African Moslem country.
As a result of such efforts and many others, thousands upon thousands of Iraqis have already made decisions to become followers of Christ, and many others are coming to Christ every week. What's more, some 162 new Iraqi believers recently began ministry training in an undisclosed section of the country to become pastors and lay leaders. But Arab Christians note there are 700,000 Iraqi believers in need of encouragement, and millions of Muslims who need the love of Christ. It's a war of ideas, they say, and it's not just about capitalism and democracy.
I could read equally incredible news reports from the lands them selves for
Islamists tell us what is happening.
Listen to the transcript of this interview.
Maher Abdallah: Dear viewers, peace of Allah be upon you, greetings and welcome to a new episode of the program Islamic Law and Life.
Our topic this evening will be Christianization …To discuss this topic, it is my pleasure to introduce today a man who is an expert on the issue of Christianization in
Sheikh Ahmad, welcome to you on the program.
Ahmad Al Qataani: Greeting to you.
Maher Abdallah: If we start by inquiring about your strict stance against the Christian missions in
Ahmad Al Qataani: … Christianization means the following: preparing plans, and executing these plans and evolving these plans to change Muslims into Christians by taking advantage of the ignorance and poverty (of the people) and whatever necessitates from similar circumstances.
Maher Abdallah: Fine. This is a big and dangerous phrase. Taking advantage of poverty, of ignorance, of lack of education, of some need is something that a Muslim can also be accused of. So if you don’t back up what you say with examples, with references, your words remain in the air without much weight to them.
Ahmad Al Qataani: As to how that happened, well .there are now 1.5 million churches whose congregations account for 46 million people. In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed …..
Maher Abdallah (interrupting): Hold on! Let me clarify. Do we have 6 million Muslims a year converting to Christianity?
Ahmad Al Qataani: Every year …..
 Paul once summed up earthly life for a believer with these words, ‘When Christ who is our life appears…” (Col. 3:4).
Jesus Christ is the theme of this church,
He is the subject of this conference
Christ's work on the Cross is the message of evangelism and missions.
Christ's return is the culmination of history.
Christ's Voice is heard in all of Scripture.
Christ's Glory is most clearly seen in the Book of the Revelation.
 “nations” ethnos # 1484 ‘nation, race’; “tribes” phule # 5443 ‘tribe, clan’; “peoples” laos # 2992 ‘people group’; “tongues” glossa # 100 ‘dialect, language’. Interestingly enough the ‘Great Commission’ was specifically to the “nations” Greek word ethnos # 1484 each time Christ gave it in Matthew 24:14; 28:19; Mark 13:10; and Luke 24:47. The other tribes and people groups seems to be only in Revelation in a Tribulation context.
 These sections drawn from various blogs by Joel Rosenburg blog 5.5.05
 Gog’s Plan: 38:7 – Gog (not the Antichrist of Daniel 11 and Revelation 13-16, and 19 who is at Armageddon) will build a military coalition and “be prepared" to strike; 38:8 – Gog will deploy the coalition against Israel (versus the Battle of Armageddon where the whole world descends upon Jerusalem from North, South, East and West); 39:9 – Gog will use overwhelming force against Israel; he and his coalition will “come like a storm....like a cloud covering the land”. God’s Plan: 38:2 – The Lord God will bring judgment upon the enemies of Israel, beginning with Gog, the dictator of Russia; 38:20 – The Lord will trigger a massive earthquake in which “all the men who are on the face of the earth will shake at My presence”; 38:21 – The Lord will turn Gog’s forces against one another; 38:22 – The Lord will subject Gog’s coalition forces to: pestilence, blood, torrential rains, hailstones, fire from heaven (not the sword from His mouth in Rev. 19 and disintegration in Zechariah 12-14); 39:6 – The Lord will “ send fire upon Magog” itself and others (no mention of this in Rev. 16, 19); 39:9 – Israel will capture her enemies weapons and burn them for 7 years (vs. Armageddon ends normal life for Earth); 39:12 – It will taken 7 full months to bury all the bodies of Israel's slain enemies (no mention of this in Armageddon passages); 39:17-20 – Birds and beast will feast on the bodies of Israel's slain enemies (yes in both passages).
