Weekly Roundup from Amier

Just two days before the arrival of our September Bible Experience Israel Tour, we are back to normal with quiet borders and defeated enemies. The attempt of Hezbollah to avenge their humiliation from last week resulted with an even greater one. Sunday afternoon, a few Russian anti-tank Kornet rockets were fired by their terrorists at an Israeli armored vehicle along the border. All missiles missed their targets. Israel deceived Hezbollah by pretending that we had casualties. The Iranian proxy quickly announced that it is no longer interested in any escalation. Believing that Israel was hurt badly, Hezbollah started celebrating in the streets of Beirut and southern Lebanon. Little did they know that the alleged Israeli casualties were nothing but healthy soldiers who returned back to their units that same night. 

Iran is defeated and so is Turkey. From the promise of the Sunni world and the rescuers of the trapped rebels in northern Syria, Turkey has turned into a passive bystander watching a literal genocide of nearly 3 million Sunni Muslims being butchered from the air by Putin and on the ground by Bashar Al-Assad.  Russia is trying to help Iran bypass the oil sales embargo and recently started collaborating with Sudan.  We are not only watching Israel bloom, but we are witnessing the entire Ezekiel coalition form before our very eyes. 

This week I’ll start working on my challenging message for the Understanding the Times 2019 conference later this month. I’m excited to have my new message, Why Should Christians Support Israel?, available on DVD via our online resource store. This message, like all others, will be uploaded on our YouTube channel very soon. 

Our social media growth is amazing, and we are receiving many online messages from people that are interested in knowing more about Jesus and/or about Israel and its significance in relation to God’s word.  I receive messages from Israelis, as well as people from Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Egypt, and even Iran. 

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. In the midst of this dark world, we want to make a difference and share the hope of our salvation and His soon return. 

In many messages given by prominent pastors worldwide, I noticed that they speak of the second coming of Christ as if it’s the event the believers should hope and pray for. That prompted me to put together a new message, “The Second Coming of Jesus – For Us or With Us?”. Just as the Jews confused the first with the second coming, Christians confuse the rapture with the second coming. 

John 14:1-4 

1 Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

 

Awaiting His Return,
