MIDEAST UPDATE 1/18/2019

One of the many passages of Scripture applicable to the difficulties we have during our short journey through this physical world is found in 2 Corinthians: Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort […]

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 Two

As mentioned in the concluding remarks of Part One, we have In the Old Testament 83rd Psalm a unique prayer petition recorded which many, myself included, is more than just a prayer, but a prophecy of a future conflict that Israel is going to face. It is one of several prophecies that predict a specific conflict with Israel’s enemies, distinct […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 3/19/2018 Our GOD is Not DEAD!!

This morning, as I was thinking through how to put today’s Mideast Update together, my wife came into my office with a Bible fact that seems perfect for today’s House of Blessing update. A phrase that is used 54 times in the Book of Ezekiel is “…that they will know that I am the LORD.” This pertains to the New […]

WHERE IS THAT WOLF? Part 5

One of the most troubling conflicts today is the one between Israel and the Palestinians. Here in Part 5, although I don’t intend to offer a clever solution that has eluded world leaders for decades, I would like to detail some truths that the mainstream media is not including in the discussion of the problem. I will also go a […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 10/27/2016

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil; therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17: I think many of us, as professing Christians, do not think enough about what the will of the Lord may be. We have very […]

“Sarah’s Story”, MIDEAST UPDATE, 5/31/2016

Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.   Psalm 115:1 The lines of people coming to Pastor R’s tent, asking for prayer, continue day by day.  People who have so little, living only moment by moment, asking for prayer, seeking the comfort of a God they have […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 5/10/2016

As I write this update, both the chaos of war as well as the supernatural intervention in the lives of people continues. The struggle for control of Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, continues with Syria’s dictator Assad sending the Syrian military in full force, indiscriminately killing militants and civilians alike. Hospitals, clinics, and even refugee camps have been hit, leaving many […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 3/21/2016

A second century Church father was quoted as saying this: “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” From the time that Stephen, the first official Christian martyr, was stoned to death in AD 36, Christians have been laying down their lives for the One who gave His life for them. I believe God has a special […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 3/11/2016

After receiving the tragic news of the death of brother Omar and his wife a few days ago, I decided that I would write an update this week around them and what their lives have meant to the Kingdom of God as they worked as missionaries through House of Blessing. As regular readers will know, our contact with House of […]
