MIDEAST UPDATE 3/26/2018

Today, I am taking another opportunity to reprint an update from about three years ago. The stories of the past, the past victories, as well as past trials and persecutions need to be remembered. Just as we read in the Book of Acts in the Bible, many in our present age have lost their lives for their faith in Jesus […]

PASTOR R–HEALTH REPORT, MIRACLES CONTINUE!

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of them that bring good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, YOUR GOD REIGNS.  ISAIAH 52:7 It was only a few days ago that I received news about Pastor R’s feet and the likelihood that the toes would have to […]

WISE AS SERPENTS, HARMLESS AS DOVES

Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” Matthew 10:16 True believers and followers of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, have been given the power through God’s Spirit to deal with any situation that presents itself in our earthly life as we await His second coming.  Of this […]

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 I received an urgent email from Jerusalem this morning and a few minutes later received a phone call from Pastor R in southern Syria.

As I was watching the news a couple days ago, reports came in about three large earthquakes; one in Japan, another in Costa Rica, and a third located on the Iraq / Iran border. This last quake was the largest of the three and registered approximately 7.3 on the richter scale. Due to the quake being relatively shallow in depth, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 9/11/2017

As the Middle East continues to change, the work of the House of Blessing missionaries continues. Over the last handful of years, this work has spread from one mideast nation to another. The enemy of our souls was on the attack from the very beginning of this project as Pastor R was directed by the Lord to begin ministering over […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 8/21/2017

After three weeks of not receiving any new information from the House of Blessing missionaries, it was a welcome relief to hear Pastor R’s gravely voice on the phone once again. Although notably tired, he sounded like the inspired man who has been sharing news with me from the front lines of the war for men’s souls in the Middle […]

-Quick- MIDEAST UPDATE, 8/14/2017

It has been longer than normal since I wrote my last Mideast Update. I base my updates on the current news I receive through Pastor R in Syria. He has been taken around to the innumerable communities of Christian believers all around the Damascus region and even further in the last three weeks or so. As regular readers will know, […]

THEY ONLY ASK US TO PRAY

A Story from Mosul July 2017 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17) I have told you these things, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 7/10/2017

Not long after I spoke with House of Blessing’s Pastor R, in my personal devotional time with the Lord today I came across a verse of scripture that accurately describes how many believers in the West feel who have been following, financially supporting, and holding up in prayer the House of Blessing and its missionaries. It is found in 1 […]
