Jews and Muslims Will Come Together, Drink a Coke and Live in Harmony
I really had the gumption to go to Pastor Malcolm M.’s church. We’ve never been there before, although we’ve known Malcolm for quite a while. He’s an amazing man; he’s in his seventies and is pastoring the church he founded over twenty years ago. He has a vision like the rest of us that the last days are upon us and great events are just ahead of us.
I was so glad we went. Right off the top he shared a scripture he said he had never noticed before. I hadn’t noticed it either until then; it was like a slap in the face. I know I read it many times, but never “noticed” it. I believe this particular scripture is prophetic, and I believe it shows that the Jews and Arabs will come into agreement as fulfillment of this prophecy. Are you intrigued yet?
First of all, where do the Arabs come from?
Most of our focus right now is on Arabs. What are Arab origins? Let’s be careful to note that not all Muslims are Arabs, even as not all Arabs are Muslims. However, the Arab-Israeli conflict turns out to be a family feud that goes back to Abraham who made the big mistake of trying to help God fulfill His promise made to Abraham. You know the story from Genesis 16 and 17, but we usually only focus on God’s promised blessings to Isaac. Did you know that God also left promised blessings to Ishmael’s descendents? Thanks to prophecy teacher Dave Reagan for providing this insight.
In Genesis 17:20, God promises to make Ishmael fruitful and multiply his descendents making of him a “great nation.” He also gave Ishmael’s descendents the land to the east of Canaan as shown in Genesis 16:12 and today there are 22 Arab nations with a combined population of 289 million people. Arabs occupy a total area of 5.3 million square miles of oil-rich land. In contrast, there is only one Jewish sate with a population of five million who are squeezed into only eight thousand square miles of space. That’s a population ratio of 58 to 1 and a land ratio of 662 to one. The Arabs have been blessed.
Arab descendents are traced to Ishmael and his Egyptian wife (Genesis 21:21), the six sons of Abraham born to him through his second wife (Genesis 25:1-4), and some came through Esau, the twin brother of Jacob. Arabs have been characterized throughout history for their violent and impulsive nature, and this was prophesied in Genesis 16:12 when God told Hagar that her son Ishmael would be “a wild donkey of a man, with his hand against everyone.”
Several prophesies concerning Arabs are found in the Bible. First the Bible prophesies in Ezekiel 35:5, 10, 11 that they will claim the land of Israel for themselves. Mt. Seir is the metaphor for the Arab people. Ezekiel also states that this claim will culminate in the end times or “at the time of punishment of the end.” Today we see that the Arabs will not be satisfied until Israelis are exterminated so they can take the land.
The Bible also prophesies that God will pour out His judgment on the Arabs in the end times for their hostility towards them and their attempt to claim the Jewish homeland as their own, Joel 3:19. Edom represents all Arab peoples, and Ezekiel further demonstrates this future destruction of Arabs in Ezekiel 35:10-11, 15, and 36:1-7. Obadiah 15-18 also describes this destruction of Edom.
During the tribulation, many Arabs will face punishment for their sins, but will turn their hearts toward Jesus (Jeremiah 12:14-17). Isaiah 19:16-25 indicates that when the Lord strikes Egypt and Assyria, they will turn to Him and He will have compassion on them and heal them. Here Isaiah also shows Egypt, Assyria, and Israel living in peace and harmony worshiping the same God.
I’m kind of starting at the end and working my way back to the beginning so I can capitalize on the element of shock and awe. Just wait; it’s coming. Don’t skip to the end, or you won’t totally understand it. Keep in mind; we see Jews and Arabs living harmoniously during the Millennial Reign. It could also be that they come together just before that too to enable the third temple to be built.
The third temple is definitely the tribulation temple. Prophecy Dude has a whole page dedicated to articles, news, and videos aobut the third temple and Temple Mount; click here to see that. Daniel and Jesus both mention it as being in existence during the tribulation period, so we know it will be built. Jewish groups in Israel are calling for the construction of it even now. It’s a big deal because it’s a big sign of the end. But, the problem is, there are a couple of important Islamic buildings (al-Haram al-Sharif, Dome of the Rock shrine, and al-Aqsa Mosque) located on the Temple Mount where everyone believes the third temple should be built. They are in the way. Some say one of them is collapsing and will fall anyway, some think an earthquake will knock them out of the way, and some think Israelis will just storm the Temple Mount and bulldoze it clear for the third temple. But, what if it were built right next to the mosque?
A lot of prophecy teachers interpret Ezekiel’s temple (Ezekiel 40-44) as being the Millennial Temple. Some prophecy teachers say this describes the tribulation temple because it immediately follows the Ezekiel war described in chapters 38 and 39. Some say it’s both.
If the mosque is not destroyed, then somehow the tribulation temple will be built in a manner satisfying scriptural requirements, that’s for sure. It will require the cooperation of Arabs. So now we know that during the Millennial Reign, Jews and Arabs will dwell together harmoniously, and some sort of agreement, treaty, or accord will be crafted to allow a peaceful construction of the third Jewish temple. How is this possible? Abraham will bring them together just as the scripture Malcolm shared with us reveals.
Remember back when Sarah demanded Hagar and Ishmael be banished in Genesis 21? It was granted. Abraham sent them on their way and the two brothers, sons of Abraham, were then seemingly forever separated. But, they did come together and this is the scripture Malcolm shared:
“Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered o his people. And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him…(Genesis 25:8-9).
This is prophetic: Abraham will bring them together again. How? Through the Seed.
Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ. Galatians 3:16
It may be that this, or at least part of this, is seeing fulfillment with what seems to be a special grace for Muslims who are converting to Christ in droves. Many testimonies disclose that Christ Himself, the Seed, is visiting the Muslim people in dreams and visions.

It's amazing that the Bible never mentions any further relationship of Ismael with his father Abraham and brother Isaac, until the brothers come together to bury their dad. That seemingly "slip of scripture" was purposely placed providing prophetic insight to the end times. It's a sign! How else do you see this being fulfilled?
