MIDEAST UPDATE…9/29/2022…” And They Loved Not Their Lives Unto The Death”

I have been on a trip for a few days and although it will be a rather short update, it will be my attempt to catch up, at least a little bit. In light of the world news in the last couple days, with the war rhetoric becoming increasingly ominous, many are wondering how long until something really serious begins […]

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….9/8/2022….”DOOR TO THE ARK IS STILL OPEN”

Many Christ-followers today are asking the question: “How long O Lord?” Those who have been watching, have seen the signs of our Messiah’s return increase in number and intensity. Some days our faith is strong, other days, not so much. All of us are susceptible to getting discouraged or despondent at times, but we don’t need to stay in that […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…8/21/2022…”And They Spoke the Word of God with Boldness”

I would like to begin today’s update with a passage of Scripture from Acts 4. 29 “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus”, […]

SPECIAL MIDEAST UPDATE…7/12/2022

This morning’s update is a very short one to let readers know of a couple new developments on the front lines with the House of Blessing missionaries. As you know, the emphasis on evangelism during the observance of the Muslim Eid al-Adha was very successful this year again. The miracle of the blind man being being opened before the eyes of […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…6/27/2022…”Keep Looking Up!!”

In the previous update, I made mention of the fact that one of Islam’s most important feast days is coming up early in the month of July. The yearly Hajj begins July 7 and continues through July 12. The Eid al-Adha feast is celebrated in the last three days, ending on the 12th. I explained the significance of the feast […]

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….4/5/2022….Multitudes of Gentiles Being Brought into God’s Kingdom!

This will once again be a rather short update but I received a call from Pastor R and he asked me to let you know the latest, now that the Muslim month of Ramadan has begun. Just before doing so, I would like to share a passage of Scripture found in the Book of Acts: 22 “…we want to hear […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….3/31/2022…”Redeeming The Time”

“…redeeming the time, because the days are evil”  Ephesians 5:16 As this update is posted on line, it is only a matter of hours until the Muslim month of Ramadan begins. The House of Blessing has been planning, preparing, and praying now for weeks in preparation for 30 days of intensive evangelism. The question is asked every year, could this […]
