Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world

God named Ishmael ‘God hears’ before he was born. Years later, God heard Ishmael’s cry when he was perishing in the wilderness and opened his mother’s eyes to see a spring of water from which she gave him drink – and he lived! Islam claims Ishmael as a spiritual forefather. Today’s Muslims are in the wilderness perishing and crying out for living water. Let the Church pray to the Father to reveal the well of living water, Jesus, so they might live!
Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world

30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World has been mobilizing prayer during Ramadan for 25 years, with unquestionably great impact. The first few years of this present century have seen more Muslims come to Christ than in the previous 14 centuries. God hears prayer!

30 Days of Prayer encourages us to pray on Ramadan’s so-called Night of Power (commemorating when Muslims believe Muhammad began to receive his revelations) that Muslims will receive dreams and visions of Jesus. Many Muslims do have such dreams and visions that are factors in their turning to Jesus.

We Christians also commemorate a Night of Power – when the sun failed for three hours at midday (Lk 23:44-45) as the Lamb of God suffered and died on a cross for the sins of the world. Three days later He rose again, having defeated the power of sin and death, and sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heavenly realms (Eph 1:19-20). NOW THAT WAS A NIGHT OF POWER! Pause and think on that.

Jesus’ substitutionary death was foreshadowed when God provided a ram to replace Isaac when Abraham obediently offered his only son as a sacrifice. “So Abraham called the name of that place, ‘The Lord will provide’; as it is said to this day, ‘On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided’ (Ge 22:2, 12-14).

About 600 years later, Jesus’ death as the Lamb of God was again prefigured as the angel of death swept through Egypt killing the firstborn of the Egyptians, but passing over the homes of the Israelites, who had smeared the blood of perfect lambs cared for in their households on their doorposts (Ex 12:3, 5-7, 12-14). The commemoration of that Passover begins this Friday evening at sunset, coinciding this year with Good Friday.

Let’s declare that Muslims and Jews will have visions and dreams of Jesus as the Lamb of God this Passover season (Ac 2:17-18).

Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to convict Muslims and Jews of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment and point them to Jesus as their Saviour (Jn 16:8-11).

Let’s pray fervently for Muslims and Jews to have clear revelation that only the Son of God could die for the sins of the world, and to call on the name of the Lord and be saved (Ac 2:21).

Let’s declare that as the third day dawns, the day that commemorates when Jesus rose from the dead and first appeared alive to His disciples (Mt 28, Mk 16, Lk 24, Jn 20-21), Muslims and Jews will be drawn to churches offering Easter services and to the homes of Christians who have reached out to them, hungering and thirsting for righteousness – and that they will be filled (Mt 5:6).

You shall have Your inheritance, Jesus!
