In the following videos Dr Dwight Nelson of Pioneer Memorial Church tackles the question, Is Islam in Bible Prophecy. He goes to among other Bible books, the book of Revelation to explain the origins of Islam. He goes further to show how God has used the sons of Ishmael in the Bible to preserve the truths of the bible and to preserve God's people. He gives among others the time when Joseph's brothers wanted to kill him but ended up selling him to the Ishmaelites who eventually sold him to the Egyptians. Through this intervention God saved his people from famine when they were allowed to settle in Egypt where Joseph had become a Senior official in Pharaoh's household. In history he mentions the case of the Turks whose attacks diverted the attention of King Charles ensuring that the Protestantism would take root and when King Charles returned from fighting the moslem Turks he could not extinguish the fire of protestantism as it had grown a lot during the intervening period. One historian actually says, 'they would not be a protestant had it not been for the Turk'. You will hear all about this in the videos that follow.
