Mosab Yousef, speaking at the UN last week

I saw this video this week, shared on Facebook by a congregational leader in Israel. It is of a former Muslim terrorist, the son of a Hamas leader & founder, speaking out at the UN on behalf of Israel, no less!

This amazingly courageous young man, Mosab Hassan Yousef, is now a believer in Jesus, and he recently spoke at the UN Human Rights Council on behalf of UN Watch, a non-governmental organisation. He speaks out from his own experience against the lies and atrocities perpetrated by the Palestinian Authority against the Palestinian population.

By doing so he will be clearly aware he is placing his own life in great danger of reprisal and murder, as he also is a Muslim who has converted to faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour. It’s a fascinating video.

The article in which the video is linked cites a lack of Western media integrity in reporting such atrocities (as described by Mosab Yousef in the video), actually contributes to the ongoing political impasse in Middle Eastern politics.

Please pray for this young man, for the Lord’s protection on him, and for his message to receive widespread distribution.

 

 

 

Answer to prayer: Britain refuses to sign Paris summit statement

Posted on

I’m pleased to be able to report the UK refused to be a signatory to the Paris summit statement issued yesterday, January 15th.

Whilst we all want peace in the Middle East, we know from the Bible peace will not come as a result of a conference of 70 nations which did not even include Israel, a one day conference which had at best questionable motives and timing.

Massive Dust Storm Forms ‘Hand of God’ Over Israeli Border to ‘Protect Nation From ISIS — Just Like in Old Testament’

Posted on Updated on

A very interesting article with the above title appeared on the website of Christian Today recently. A weather phenomenon occurred recently on the Golan Heights, on the border of Israel with Syria, that it’s claimed helped to quell an ISIS attack on Israel.

It does indeed bring to mind events in the Old Testament where the God of Israel physically intervened on behalf of Israel against her enemies. The story of the pillar of cloud by the Red Sea is quoted in the article, but I’m also reminded of the time when Hezekiah pleaded with God against the attacking Babylonians in Isaiah 37. There are other examples too. There’s also the story from 1973, when a group of Israeli soldiers were caught in a Syrian minefield, dramatised here.

This all remind us that God still does intervene in human affairs, and that His promises in Psalm 121 still stand.

“Behold, He who keeps Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.”
