MIDEAST UPDATE…4/14/2021…”Teach us to Number our Days”

In Psalm 90 we find these words: 10 The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is one of labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. 11 Who knows the power of Your anger? For as the fear of You, so […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…3/22/2021…”End of the Age Harvest”

As we look back at Church history we find that no matter the circumstances, the true Church, as it was empowered by the Holy Spirit, was able to thrive and grow. We see this in many locations in our world today, including the troubled Middle East. The Book of Acts gives us many examples of this, one of them in […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….3/18/2021….”Just As I Am”

In the last update, I told the story of five men; a father named Suleiman, and his four grown sons, Majd, Mustafa, Refaat, and Aref. These five men had been raised Muslim but eventually became Islamic State (Daesh) militants. When in God’s providence their paths crossed with House of Blessing’s missionaries, Omar, Sami, and Mussa, they found that Jesus Christ […]

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…2/8/2021…”Little is Much when GOD is in It!”

In today’s world, particularly in Western culture, most people find it hard to believe in miracles. Yet, supernatural events do occur. It is not true that the miraculous events recorded for us during Jesus’ 3-1/2 years of ministry in Palestine and then continued by Jesus’ hand-picked apostles ended when they had passed on into eternity. Church history is laced with […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…1/27/2021…”Looking for Another Country!”

I was sent quite a number of photos showing the difficult conditions people in the refugee camps are having to endure again this year. This is of course not something new this winter of 2021. It is however something that many of us need to see again in order for us not to forget to pray for these folks and […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…1/4/2021…”Grave-robber to Child of GOD!”

In spite of all we are seeing happening in our world today, I think a good way to begin the year 2021 is with Psalm 118:24 which says, “This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Those of us who are the servants of the Most High GOD can say this with […]

It is hard to believe how fast this year has gone by. Here we are nearing Christmas already in 2020. What a year it has been! 2020 became a year like none other in memory. The convergence of extraordinary events around the world, including inclement weather, increase in geological events, Biblical signs in the heavens and strange cosmic events, rumors […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 11/20/2020 “Help From on High”

As the nations of the world are continuing to struggle with the COVID-19 virus, so are the people in the Middle East. The hardest hit are always those who have the least at their disposal to fight the virus. This is especially the case among the multitudes of people who have been displaced. Large numbers of the displaced live in […]
