MIDEAST UPDATE…5/16/2022…Every Stain of Sin Cleansed by the BLOOD

One of the most important principles of the Christian life is “forgiveness”. When the disciple Peter asked Jesus how many times he would be required to forgive someone—thinking seven times was more than generous—Jesus told him he might need to forgive a person seventy times seven! That is almost unimaginable for most of us, but God’s view on most things […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…3/4/2021…”Yeshua, Lover of Souls and Changer of Hearts”

Most who read the Mideast Updates have a pretty good understanding of God’s grace and forgiveness made available through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Something that is difficult for some to comprehend, however, is how far the grace of God reaches. This is often especially true for believers who have never fallen into a lifestyle of sin and guilt to […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 1/8/2019 “Facing the Days of Evil”

My first phone call in 2019 from Pastor R in Syria was quite short but I was able to get a quick overview of the situation the House of Blessing missionaries are presently facing. As is with every winter, the missionaries who embed themselves within the refugee populations, go through the very difficult winter conditions along with the people they […]

THE FINAL SACRIFICE, Part 2

  A Study in Hebrews Chapter 9:11-Chapter 10:18 Part Two Continued from Part One… Verses 5-10 read this way: Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, Then I said, Behold, I have come—in the volume of the book it is written of Me—To do Your will, O God.’ Previously saying, “Sacrifice […]

THE FINAL SACRIFICE, Part 1

                                  A STUDY IN HEBREWS Chapter 9: 11-Chapter 10:18 Part One I have had opportunity to speak with a number of former Muslim sheikhs living in the Middle East. Almost invariably, each will share a bit of their personal testimony. These men have been […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 10/11/2016

As I begin to write this update, I think back to all that has transpired in the last few years. A little less than a year after the beginning of the Arab Spring in the Middle East, the Lord spoke to Pastor R, the founder of House of Blessing, asking him to go over the border from Israel and begin […]

THE INFALLIBLE WORD OF GOD, Part 3

In our study of the infallible Word of God, we ended part 2 with an emphasis on the divine identity of Jesus Christ. We will continue with that theme as we unfold some more unique golden nuggets that God has embedded in His Word to show us there is no other Book like the Bible. As introduction to what we […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 12/15/2015 “It Continues!”

I cannot count how many times I have wished I was not 10,000 miles from where the things are happening that I have the privilege to chronicle. Today is another of those days! As I mentioned in the last update, I have been rereading the Book of the Acts of the Apostles. I have purposely been reading it slowly and […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 10/13/2015

I think one of the things that has astounded me the most from the reports I receive from the Mideast, is the phenomenal response to the gospel of God’s love for the human race. As the chaos continues to escalate, the Christian missionaries are sought out even more for any help they can give, whether food, medicine, or a spiritual […]

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 10

Over the years I have met many people who have had a great struggle trying to forget their own past. In this part of this series, I would like to take some time to offer some Scriptural help to those who so often struggle with the despair that this torment brings. God’s Word does not leave us without the tools […]
