 "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.  And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written.  Romans 11:25-26 NKJV

Ryan James is a husband, and a father to five children. His mission is to know and to proclaim the glory and soon return of the risen Lord Jesus to the Muslim world.  He is the head of operations for i2 ministries and school administrator of Mission Muslim World University (mmwu.org) to train, energize, and mobilize the global 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 predominately Muslim.  (Also see Rev. 7:9-14, Isaiah 19, Acts/Joel 2, Amos 9:11-12). I long for the day when the descendants 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 worship movement to Jesus 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"  starts worshiping 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 and it will happen 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 continual prayer and proclamation of Christ in the darkest Islamic regions.  This echoes the great Moravian cry.. "May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering".  I long for the fame of Jesus to be proclaimed where He is not known so His renown can be experienced by those who have not heard and my burden is to see Ishmael sing....
