“The Worthy One” — “The Lamb of GOD” Part Two

–Study of Revelation 4-5 Continued From Part One– –Part Two– Because of where this study is taking us in Revelation 4 and 5, three passages below in the New Testament will be of importance. These passages make an undeniable connection between the “suffering Messiah” and the “Son of Man” phrase. 24 “ For as the lightning that flashes out of […]

“The Worthy One” — “The Lamb of GOD”

In preparation for a detailed study of Revelation 6-7 which includes the 7 Seals of the Apocalypse, I have reformatted and brought back a study done in 2019 on Revelation 4-5. An accurate understanding of the Throne Room scene and its timing will help with a proper understanding of what the unfolding of the 7 Seals and details surrounding them […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….1/1/2023….”Onward and Upward!”

By now, most of us have had time to reflect on the year 2022 we just left behind. One of the thoughts that has repeatedly come to my own mind is the phrase “in the fullness of time.” We find this phrase in the Scriptures several times. In the New Kings James version of the Bible, we find those words […]

ISRAEL AND THE COMING GREAT MIDDLE EAST WAR…..Part Three

“How Close Are We?” As I launch into the third part of this series on Israel’s prophetic ‘end of the age’ wars, I would like to make it clear that I am not of the opinion that the nation of Israel — in spite of the fact that it is called the ‘chosen nation,’ — is better than any other […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….11/17/2022….”And They Realized They Had Been With Jesus!”

A passage of Scripture I have referred to on occasion is found in Acts 4 when Peter and John were arrested by the religious authorities. The passage below will connect directly to today’s House of Blessing Update and also to each one of us as believers and followers of Jesus Christ, our Messiah. 1 Now as they spoke to the […]

“The Catching Away” in Zephaniah’s Prophecy?

Zephaniah’s Pre-Tribulation Rapture I recently came across an excellent article which happens to be in line with some of my own studies in the Old Testament Book of Zephaniah. It was written by an author by the name of Corey (last name unknown to me) and is found on a website called “End Times: Darkness Descending”. I decided to share […]

THE ‘PREEMINENCE’ of JESUS CHRIST…..Colossians 1:12-23

Who is Jesus Christ? Why is it that after 2,000 years of history having passed, He is still the central figure of all history? Was He merely a prophet as some claim? Was He just a historical influential philosopher, one of many? Or was He one among the many religious leaders we find listed in our history books? Was He […]

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 […]
