MIDEAST UPDATE….10/3/2022….”A Priceless Treasure”

I have had the opportunity to speak with Pastor R several times in the last few days. He told me about a new challenge being faced in Syria; cholera. To be clear, cholera has been faced before in the Mideast, and the House of Blessing missionaries have had to deal with its effects before. This however is the first time […]

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….8/13/2022….”Who Holds Your Tomorrow?”

There isn’t one of us who has knowledge of what our tomorrow will bring—unless of course, God gives us special knowledge. As believers, we are thankful at the end of every day for another day that has passed and we are now one day closer to Jesus’ return for His own. A personal practice of mine is to thank the […]

Rapture Typology in Acts Nine

Dramatic Escape From Damascus   (Word for word reprint of article written for UNSEALED website, Author: Jeff) Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

MIDEAST UPDATE…7/3/2022….”How Amazing is our GOD!”

Considering the size of the series of miracles in the last few weeks, including today’s addition, this update will be rather short. The reason for the brevity of today’s update is because the Muslim, Eid al-Adha, a time of special evangelism by the House of Blessing missionaries is only days away and I’d like you to know what has happened […]

SPECIAL MIDEAST UPDATE…5/26/2022…”And They Overcame Him By The Blood of the Lamb and Their Testimony”

This will be a very short update. I would like to pass on some information I just received a few hours ago. Pastor R called me earlier today, broken hearted, to let me know of an incident that he had just been made aware of. As regular readers will remember, the House of Blessing opened four Bible School classes just […]

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…4/19/2022…”All These Things Will They Do”

Today’s update is once again quite short as it is regarding a special call I received from Pastor R concerning an incident that happened three or four days ago. There is a Scripture in John 15 I would like to share that is applicable. 18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. […]

MESSIAH

Perhaps the most controversial figure in history is Jesus Christ. Have you ever wondered why? In his excellent book, Mere Christianity, 20th century British author C.S. Lewis made this statement: “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him (that is, Christ): ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral […]

When You See These Things Beginning…

Missing the Forest for the Trees As Jesus sat with His disciples in the evening on what was most likely the day before His crucifixion, they asked Him three questions: “Tell us when these things shall be”? “What shall be the Sign of Your Coming?”  “What is the sign of the end of the age?” The Bible uses terms like […]
