Godís Promises to the Arabs

Genesis 21:13-19

  1. And of the son of the maid I will make a nation also, because he is your descendant."
  2. So Abraham rose early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulder, and gave her the boy, and sent her away. And she departed and wandered about in the wilderness of Beersheba.
  3. And the water in the skin was used up, and she left the boy under one of the bushes.
  4. Then she went and sat down opposite him, about a bowshot away, for she said, "Do not let me see the boy die." And she sat opposite him, and lifted up her voice and wept.
  5. God heard the lad crying; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "What is the matter with you, Hagar? Do not fear, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
  6. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him by the hand, for I will make a great nation of him.
  7. Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the skin with water and gave the lad a drink.

The Arabs MAY CLAIM ETERNAL LIFE

(Written by Salem Kirban)

The Arabs must come to realize that Genesis 15:18 and Jeremiah 23:7,8 along with other Scripture reference promise Palestine to Israel (from the river of Egypt to the river Euphrates? some 180,000 square miles)

And while Israel is the inheritor of this hallowed area call the Promised Land . She also has been and will be the inheritor of many trials and tribulations that Arab nations will not be subjected to

Yet the Arab people may claim ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD the promise of eternal life by accepting Christ as Saviour and Lord (Romans 10:9-13), the promise of a Heavenly home (John 14:2,3) and reigning forever with our Lord in Heavenly city New Jerusalem (2 Peter 3:13,14; Revelation 21:2ff)

Here are the following Scriptures that Salem Kirban quoted:

(Rom 10:9 NNAS) that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

Comments

"Confess" is the Greek word homologeo, meaning "to declare the same thing." Therefore, the confession that leads to salvation is that which agrees with God in His judgment concerning man and His remedy for man in Christ. Confession of Jesus as Lord is one of the earliest Christian confessions of faith. To acknowledge Jesus as Lord certainly involves:

  1. a recognition of His deity: Lord (kurios, Gk.) is often used to translate the name of God in the O.T. (Yahweh);
  2. a recognition of His ability to save;
  3. an acknowledgment of His sovereign right as God-Savior to demand obedience to Himself in all things. The idea of personally trusting Him is involved.

 

(Rom 10:10-13 NNAS)

  1. For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
  2. For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED."
  3. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
  4. for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."

 

(John 14:2-3 NNAS)

"In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

(2 Pet 3:13 NNAS) But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

(2 Pet 3:14 NNAS) Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,

(Rev 21:2 NNAS) And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

Salem Kirban conclude this exhortation to the people of the Arabs:

"As Arabs all these Promises are ours if we but believe. But to Israel belongs the promises of Palestine. And this will yet be fulfilled to those end-times Jews who will accept Christ as Saviour and Lord.

With such an overflowing abundance of promises to the Arab, our hearts should be filled with everlasting joy and thankfulness!"
