Revival Among the Arabs | Ishmael Shall Live!

Be prepared to see a great move of God in the Middle East. There will be a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in these nations. This will be the real Arab Spring. A spiritual awakening that shall move many of the nations into the worship of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

On Tuesday 11 July 2017 at 2:20 am this is what the Lord said about some of these nations.

Pray for change in Iran. The gospel shall find root in this area. Pray for the doors to this nation to be opened. 

Pray for an end to all pilgrimages to Mecca. I am calling the people of the generations of Ishmael into the Kingdom. They are being engrafted into the promise. For My covenant with My servant Abraham was that I would make of him a great nation. 

Natural princes have come from him. They have prospered and fervently serve their idols.

I will shift the heart of Ishmael to My worship. 

I will tame the wild man and his fierce strength shall be directed at the neck of his real enemy. His hand shall now be at the neck of Satan instead of his brother. He who was a man of war shall be called a man of peace. He shall beat his sword into plowshare. His wealth shall be used for the Kingdom (of God). His resources will be used to build monuments of worship. 

Pray for revival in United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Iran, Irag, Syria, Somalia, Mogadishu and Egypt. 

I have humbled the nation of Egypt. I have broken the back of its gods and it has not yielded. Pride is its strong tower. Its wealth has been its strength. Pray for the redemption of Egypt.

A month ago while I was in prayer the Lord said to me:

I have heard the cry of my servant Abraham, ‘Ishmael shall live before Me‘. I covenanted to make him a father of many nations. Now I will bring Ishmael into the Kingdom. The time has come.

Prayer for Ishmael

Father, blessed be your name forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to You. Lord you are God, you change the times and seasons; You removes kings and establishes them. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. You reveals the deep and hidden things; You know what lies in the darkness and light dwells with you. To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise (Daniel 2:20-23).

I thank you that you have made known your answer to the request of your servant Abraham.

I thank you that in these last days you will extend your hand to cover Ishmael. For you are the God who sees. Lord I thank you that the cries of Ishmael has been heard. You have removed his rejection. For His shame there shall be a double. As you pour out your spirit on all flesh, thank you that you will bring into fulfillment the prayer of Abraham. Ishmael shall indeed live before you.

No longer shall his hand be against his brother. Now Ishmael shall raise his hand to make peace with his brother. He shall be known as a man of peace. Your word says ‘Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God‘ (Matthew 5:9). Ishmael shall be called a child of God.

Father, thank you that now Ishmael will be engrafted into the promise. Ishmael shall be a man of love. May the descendants of Ishmael be known by their love. A people who love and serve the God of their father Abraham. Whose faith and devotion to the God of heaven shall be as their father. Lord may you call them friend, just as you called Abraham friend (James 2:23).

Lord, may you give him a new heart and a new Spirit. Remove the stony heart. Give him a heart of flesh. Write your commandments on his heart. That he may walk in your commandments. That he may love beyond measure. That he may be known by his love. Just as you Lord Jesus is known by your love.

Father by your mighty hand may you clean the idols from the land. May it be known that the God of heaven reigns among his people. That He raises man up and removes man. He sets kings in place. He removes kings. He watches over the affairs of men.

May the nations of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Mogadishu, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Syria and Somalia be governed by Kings and princes of righteousness. May the people be lead to the mountain of the Lord, to worship you in Spirit and truth. For the Father seeks for such.

We cry out for the deliverance and redemption of the nations. May they come in with rejoicing, singing, waving, running, shouting, with joy and laughter. ‘Hosanna! Hosanna! In the highest. Blessed be He who comes in the name of the Lord. For He as redeemed us and purchased us with His blood.  Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus.’ May they call upon your name and be saved.

Lord we thank you for hearing our cry. Thank you for a great revival among the nations of the Middle East. We ask that you send laborers into the vineyard. For the harvest is truly plentiful. The fields are ripe for picking. May the labors be filled with your love and fire. The fire that comes only from your Holy Spirit. May you confirm your word with great signs and wonders. As they stretch forth their hands to heal may miracles by done by the hand of our Lord Jesus. Lord you know there may be threatenings. Evil will seek to diminish the voice of your labors. Evil will attempt to fill them with fear but Father place the Spirit of Love upon them. For perfect love drives out all fears. May they be filled with boldness to proclaim your great name.

Lord Jesus please open doors that your laborers may boldly proclaim the good news of the Kingdom. May the heart of the children be turned back to their Father.

Lord Jesus, thank you that as they call on your name they shall be saved. Great deliverance shall come to these nations. For your holy fire of revival comes to the nations. Lord Jesus thank you for visiting your people and raising an horn of salvation. For saving them from their strong enemies. For securing their borders. And releasing peace within their gates.

Father, thank you for answering our prayer. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!

Are You Available

Thank you for praying with us. There is more that needs to be done. You may provide support for missionaries in these nations. Prayer is also needed for persecuted saints.

Do you desire to be a part of the move of God in these nations?

Right now ask the Lord to send you. It starts with a simple prayer, ‘Lord here am I, please send me’. The Lord Jesus needs willing hands to work in the vineyard. Are you available to be used for His glory?

This is an excerpt from a message given recently by Prophet Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj on Angel TV. At the end of the message he spoke about revival in the Middle East, as God fulfills the request of Abraham to let Ishmael live before him.

Scriptural References

Genesis 16: 7 – 15

Now the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur. And He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?”

She said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.”

The Angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.” 10 Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, “I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for multitude.” 11 And the Angel of the Lord said to her:

“Behold, you are with child,
And you shall bear a son.
You shall call his name Ishmael,
Because the Lord has heard your affliction.
12 He shall be a wild man;
His hand shall be against every man,
And every man’s hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

13 Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?” 14 Therefore the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; observe, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

15 So Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram named his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. 16 Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

Genesis 17:17,18

17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!

Matthew 8:11

I tell you, many will come from east and west, and will sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven

Luke 13:29

And [people] will come from east and west, and from north and south, and sit down (feast at table) in the kingdom of God.

Malachi 1:11

For from the rising of the sun to its setting My name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered to My name, and indeed a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts.
