 "For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved,[g] as it is written.  Romans 11:25-26 NKJV

My mission is to know and to proclaim the glory and soon return of our crucified and risen Lord Jesus to the Muslim world.  I work with i2 ministries to train, energize, and mobilize the global local church to effectively love and evangelize Muslims everywhere. The promise of the "fullness of the gentiles" being saved  refers to a promise of an eschatological harvest in regions surrounding Israel that are predomantly Muslim.  (Also see Rev. 7:9-14, Isaiah 19, Acts/Joel 2, Amos 9:11-12). I long for the day when the decendents of Ishmael will be swept up into the glory of Jesus and sing the songs of Zion provoking Israel to jealousy. Imagine in the darkest hour of history as the return of the Lord draws near a revial unto a worship movement in the Muslim world that will not be silenced no matter the persecution.... a song that won't be quenched no matter the cost.  When the remnant of "Ishmael" sees the glory of Jesus and starts worshipping and longing for the coming of the Jewish Messiah to rule and reign from Jerusalem then Israel will be provoked to Jealousy leading to the salvation of the Jewish people.    This will be the hardest, darkest, most difficult yet most glorious task for the church in all of history as a remnant of Ishmaelites are reconcilled and grafed into the hope of Israel despite millions of martyers.  As the end of the age is drawing near and Islam is exploding across the whole earth soon to become to worlds largest religion and by far the largest unreached people group the only appropriate resoponese of the Global Church is to give ourselves to continaual prayer and proclaimation of Christ in the darkest Islamic regions.  This echoes the great moravian cry.. "May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering".  I exist just as the rest of the global church to ensure that the fame of Jesus is proclaimed where He is not known... Where His renown can be experienced by those who have not heard.  And my personal burden is to see Ishmael sing....   -  Ryan James
