God of the impossible – ONE FOR ISRAEL

I think God loves to surprise us. To stack impossible odds against himself, and then knock them down. Consider the Exodus, the birth of Isaac, and of course the resurrection! What thoughts and feelings might Yeshua have experienced when he revealed himself to Mary outside the tomb, and to his friends?
We are seeing the risen Jesus perform the impossible time after time here in the Middle East. The Son of David is working out His plans to reach the nations in a wonderful way, and it is always with wonder that we see Muslims respond to the truth of the gospel.
Dr. Erez Soref, President
One of the new Muslim background believers we are in contact with recently made a dramatic escape from a very dangerous situation in the Middle East. He has already traveled to two different countries, and is seeking asylum in a place where he will be free to live and express his faith as a follower of Jesus. He arrived at a safe house where a room was prepared for him, in the home of a family who love Israel, and there was an Israeli flag on the wall.
“Does the flag bother you?” His host asked.
“No, I have family there!” He replied.
Despite growing up in an environment full of fury against Israel, there was no hatred in this man’s heart. He knows that we love him and have been praying for him without ceasing over the last couple of years that he has been in touch with us, learning more and more about Jesus. He even counts us as family. We feel so privileged that he sees us this way, to the degree that it would override such strong sentiments that have been instilled since birth. You can also imagine that we are feeling the weight of responsibility for the safety of this young man, his family, and for all the others in similar situations that we are in touch with.
Again we ask for your prayers for him and his family, and for wisdom for us, as we hold out the gospel in dangerous and dark places. Their decision to follow Jesus can cost them everything, and we are very mindful of that. But our God is worthy, and mighty!

Our Arabic evangelism is reaching far and wide – we have had Muslims not only from Gaza and the West Bank responding, but also new believers in Jordan, Iraq and Syria.
More than that, we now have a Muslim background believer from Syria who has started to study with our Bible College, via distance learning! He used to study the Qu’ran for many hours a day, and now hungers to know the word of God in the same measure.
It is wonderful that Israel is in pole position to help, with born-again Arabs as well as Jews here in the Body of Messiah. Our team are trained and ready to serve in a region that is hungry for God.
