CHRISTIANS AND MOSLEMS
 

In Genesis 16:5, and Genesis 21:2 it is written that Abraham the grandfather of the Jews and Arabic had two sons. These two sons, born from two spouses, were representative of two covenants that the apostle Paul teaches in Galatians 4:21-30 < <... Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.  But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.  But
Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.  For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.  Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.  > >

The Old Testament  being the image(allegory), when reality came with Jesus Christ,  Saint Paul  the apostle explains and says (Romans 9:6-8) < < Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:  Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but
the children of the promise are counted for the seed. > >. The Lord Jesus Christ knowing that,  exclaimed against the religious  Jews leaders and said < < I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.  They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.  But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. > > John 8:37-40. (verse 40 chows clearly that: the fact of refusing the biblical truth reveals the deep nature of our interlocutor, it means the devil is guiding the concerned one. )

God rich in mercy had envisaged, without discrimination, a time of Grace for all humanity as it is written  in Romans 9:23-24
< < And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. > > Hosea 1:10 < < Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. > >. In Ephesians 2:11-14, the apostle  reminds and  describes what  God, in Christ, carried out for all humanity < < Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcised  by that which is called the Circumcised  in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace >>.

God of Abraham (father of Isaac and Ishmael) could not bless all the nations according to the carnal descent, not. It is only in Jesus Christ that the promise made to Abraham finds really its fulfillment  
Galatians
3:29 < < And if you are to Christ, then you are the descent of Abraham, heirs according to the promise > >. Saint Peter the apostle confirms that the people of all the nations tribes and races form, in Christ, only one race of God, 1 Peter 2:9-10 < <  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. > > Saint Paul gives the same testimony in Galatians 3:27-28.

Since the beginning of the time of the grace Luke 4:18-19 (Isaiah  61:1-2) Every body who believe in true God, creator of the heaven and the earth, God of Abraham, should use the time of our journey on earth with caution, we should seriously check out  to see the continuation of the work of the same God in our time. We should refrain from becoming fanatic of anyone. According to the Bible, the time of the grace must be used with recognition, without seeking to walk, as in the past, in our own ways (Isaiah 53:5-6). The membership of a carnal race should not blind our Arab brothers and sisters to see the realization of the promise of God to Abraham Geneses 17:6-7, Galatians 3:29.

Because, this time of the grace is about  to finish for the nations. In fact, it is written in Romans 11:26-27, the apostle Paul point out  that after He reveals to us, His people of the nations; the Lord our God will then return to reveal His self to his people of Israel, Zachariah 12:10 < <
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.> > This is in direct connection with the plan of God revealed to his servants the prophets, because, according to Daniel 9:24, Israel (nation), was to be in the presence of God for  70 prophetic-weeks. Thus, there remains to them one week which must be achieved after the time of the nations, because the Messiah was to be cut off after 69 prophetic-weeks, this means; 62+7: Daniel 9-25-26. It concords with the Ministry of two prophets of Apocalypse 11:3, which corresponds exactly to a prophetic week that remains to  Israel. 

Due to the fulfillment of the promises of God in our generation, we owe to exhort our brothers and sisters, Arabic and others, that it is not a business of < Jews >, but rather of God who has a plan that He thoroughly carries out.  He has opened a new era to grace everybody, from all nations. Nobody can escape from God’s will just choosing a religion according to the fashion or his racial membership --- not.
It is very serious to recognize that in Jesus-Christ, God as fulfilled his promise to bless all the nations of the earth through Abraham. The things are not any more according to the flesh, but according to the spirit. If you recognize God of Abraham (father of Isaac and Ishmael) as the only true God; then repent to have passed your life up to now without Christ in order to have share of the promises of the same very God in this time of ours.  Acts of the Apostles 2:38-39, Saint Peter already said <<... Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. > >.
