MIDEAST UPDATE…9/18/2022…”God’s Love in Action”

Even though there was only one Apostle Paul, variations of his salvation story can be told by countless believers and followers of Jesus today, who at one time had declared themselves His enemies. A small portion of Paul’s lengthy testimony before King Agrippa of His encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus reads this way: 13 “…at midday, O […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….8/2/2022….”Whether I Live or Die…”

I thought of a couple passages of Scripture as I prepared to write this short update. The first is found in Psalm 27: The LORD is my light and my salvation: Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…11/25/2019…”A Dying Woman’s Vision–Part Two”

I find it amazing that we are almost at the end of 2019. Looking back through the website archives, to see that the subject matter of the Update at the end of November 2018 included four major events, one year ago. Here at the end of November, the House of Blessing missionaries all across the mideast are doing their best […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…7/20/2019…The Book of Acts Continues…

This past week as I heard from Pastor R in Syria, he told me once again of some of the enormous challenges the House of Blessing missionaries are experiencing–not last year; not last month, or even last week. It’s a reality for them right now…TODAY!  As I was readying myself to write this week’s update, I could not help but […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…6/24/2019….And the Harvest Continues…

As we continue watching the unfolding of news in the Middle East, we see tensions continue to rise. The reality of the life and death struggle faced by this generation is real across the entire world, few places more desperate than for the millions of displaced peoples of the Mideast. Some regions are of course experiencing harsher circumstances than others.  […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 3/11/2019 Is War Near?

This week is the eighth anniversary of the beginning of Syria’s civil war. One would think that the regime in Syria would be more than anxious for the end of the nightmare that the people of Syria have been going through. Yet, even after millions of Syrian civilians have left the nation and millions more have been displaced within the […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 12/26/2018 God is Good!

As I begin this update close to the end of 2018, I felt the Holy Spirit urge me to share a few thoughts about how we ought to view the days we are living in and how we should approach them. We live in unique times and it is important that we see what God has to say to us […]

ALL EYES ON ISRAEL Part Ten

There are those in our world who think that history, as it unfolds, is random. Others believe that history is cyclical and will eventually always come back to its starting point. Then there are others who aren’t convinced it has to be random or cyclical because history’s outcome can be determined by man. The Bible teaches us that mankind, regardless […]

ALL EYES ON ISRAEL Part Five

In the latter portion of Part Four we went into detail, mainly provided by the prophet Isaiah, about what the Bible foretells of the destruction of Damascus just prior to the Day of the Lord. The prophet Jeremiah also prophesied the doom of Damascus and the details God provided Jeremiah help to broaden the picture. As we see both prophecies […]

ALL EYES ON ISRAEL Part Four

In the conclusion of part three of this series of articles, I mentioned that Israel knows that they are facing war on all sides. The news in the last few days serves to strongly confirm that fact. As Friday prayers were finished in mosques in Gaza last week, once again the Palestinians were urged to challenge the Israeli military by […]
