From The Christian Post:
Numerous Syrian Muslims who fled their war-torn country and found refuge in Lebanon have converted to Christianity despite threats and incidents of attacks on new converts, according to a report…
George Saliba, Bishop of Syrian Orthodox Church in Lebanon, said he has baptized around 100 Muslim Syrian refugees since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011, according to USA Today.
Abu Radwan, who fled the city of Homs in Syria and was baptized by Bishop Saliba in Beirut, was quoted as saying that Jesus appeared to him in a dream two years ago. “I started going to the church. I believed that Jesus was coming to help us, to save us.”…
An evangelical church in Beirut, which was not identified due to safety concerns, also has several Syrian converts, according to the report.
“When I see a person wishes to be Christian, I don’t stop him, but we try to test him,” the pastor was quoted as saying.
A June 2016 article from The Guardian noted anecdotal data of rising Christian church attendance in Europe by Muslims.
Trinity church in the Berlin suburb of Steglitz, for instance, saw its congregation rise from 150 to 700 due to new Muslim converts, while the Austrian Catholic Church saw its applications for adult baptism swell by nearly 70 percent in the first three months of 2016.
“I found that the history of Islam was completely different from what we were taught at school. Maybe, I thought, it was a religion that began with violence,” an Iranian convert, 32-year-old Johannes, was quoted as saying. “A religion that began with violence cannot lead people to freedom and love. Jesus Christ said ‘those who use the sword will die by the sword.’ This really changed my mind.”

2-3 years ago I had a vision flash through my head of a field being harvested, there were harvesters dressed in traditional middle eastern clothes, the harvest was almost complete with sheaths standing in the field. Though it was a broad seeded fielded I saw two rows left to harvest. It came to me that one represented the Jews and the other the Arabs. It looks as if the gospel has gone around the world and has now come back to where it originated from.

That is really interesting. I wonder if that ties into the belief that there is a number that will be met before the rapture – ‘until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in’. I am not of the mind that there is a specific number that is met but more a matching event/time and God already knows when all those will coincide with his time.
When you saw 2 rows, Jews and Arabs, we know that the Jews won’t be harvested until later. So maybe all that is left to be harvested BEFORE the rapture are those (Arabs) coming in now. I say that speaking as a whole, not saying that there will not be individuals (our loved ones 🙂 ) between now and then saved.
