Report:  bibles4mideast.com

Police arrested four “Bibles for Mideast”  (http://bibles4mideast.com) people and sent them to the prison in the Middle East today, 19 January, ’17. Two of them are pastors and two others are believers.

Pastors were taking Bible class to the other two when the police forcibly entered into the room.

The two believers started coming to the underground church for worship services just two months ago. They became firm believers and preparing for the baptism.

Police brutally beaten them before taking into custody. One of the pastors tried to speak something, but the police beaten his face. It broke some of his teeth and blood came out from nose and mouth. He fall down on the ground. Then police hit him with boots under his stomach. Three others also brutally beaten.

Then police took them to the Shariah court and the court sent them to the jail run by secret police. The prisoners are considered and treated in that jail is very harsh and brutal way. The ordinary people can’t imagine it; such kind of brutal punishments are being done in that jail.

“BIBLES4MIDEAST” CALL FOR A 100 HOURS FASTING PRAYER TO ALL OF OUR FELLOW BELIEVERS FOR OUR LORD’S MIGHTY PROTECTION AND DELIVERANCE FOR THEM. WE REQUEST THE ENTIRE CHURCH TO JOIN WITH US IN PRAYERS. PRAY FOR THE MINISTRIES, MINISTERS AND THE BELIEVERS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

DEAR FELLOW BELIEVERS, DO NOT BE AFRAID. OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST IS WITH US. HE IS MIGHTY AND POWERFUL. THE CHURCH IS HIS BODY. HE WILL NOT ALLOW HIS BODY TO GO ASTRAY.  ONCE HE SUFFERED, CRUCIFIED AND DIED FOR US AND RISEN FROM THE DEAD. HE IS WITH US. WE ARE UNDER HIS MIGHTY WINGS.  AND WE HAVE A BRIGHT TOMORROW, FOR BATTLE IS THE LORD’S. TRUST HIM AND LOOK UNTO HIM. HE WILL DO EVERYTHING FOR GOOD. AMEN! (following is the Arabic translation of this paragraph, to the fellow believers).

لمؤمنين زملائي الأعزاء، لا تخافوا. لدينا الرب والمخلص يسوع المسيح معنا. والأقوياء وقوية. أن الكنيسة هي جسده. أنه لن يسمح جسده ضل.  بمجرد أنه عانى، صلب ومات من أجلنا، وارتفع من القتلى. ومعنا. ونحن تحت جناحيه الأقوياء. وقال أنه سيحارب بالنسبة لنا. الثقة به، وتبدو له. لدينا من مشرق غدا، للمعركة هو ربنا. سوف يفعل كل شيء للخير. أمين.

Royal Family Members Believing Jesus and face death threats

prison

Report: bibles4mideast.com

Pray for the member of a ruler’s family who is in prison as a court-ordered punishment. He believes in Jesus and supported evangelism.

Another man sentenced to death. He was accused of a big crime which was done some years ago. But he confessed his sins and accepted Jesus. The  topmost people asked him to give up that faith. But he did not want to leave his faith. And he gave encouragement for Christian ministries. Finally, by the instruction of the ruler, court implemented his execution accusing as the punishment of the criminal case. They totally hide his Christian faith.

Recently one man also imprisonment from same family. Some others are killed and many are facing death threats.

Maybe this report will make bibles4mideast and its believers put into severe troubles. So we hide it and prayed over the months because of the security reasons. But the blood of Jesus is the seed of the church. We could see a new faithful Christian land in the nearest future by God’s grace.

Pontius Pilot ordered to crucify Jesus, though he did not find Him any faults.  But he afraid Jews and the crowed. Also he did not want to loose his obedience and friendship with Ceaser. Here also rulers afraid the religious law because of the people and do not want to loose their power.

Pray for the victims that our Lord Jesus may protect them in His Mighty Hands. Also pray for “Bibles for Mideast”, it’s ministers, believers and the ministries. And all other Christian missions involving evangelism activities in the region.

Jesus, You Are My Everything

jesus1

Jesus is the song that I sing

He is the joy that a new day brings.

He is my strength when I am weak,

He is my voice when I speak

He is my friend when I need a hug

 

He is my lover, when I need real love.

He is the lawyer who pleads my case

He is the only righteous judge who forgives me,

then, all my sins he does erase.

 

He is the doctor who heals my wounds,

He is my redeemer, and He’s coming back soon.

He is my comforter when I’m feeling down,

He is my angel that is ever present, always around.

He is my provider always supplying when I need help,

He is my water, my bread, stored up on the shelf.

 

He is my teacher, who shows me what to do,

He is my encourager, when I really don’t want to.

He is that fire burning deep down in my soul,

He is my fortune-teller, for in his hands, my future he holds.

He is the repairman, who comes to fix my stuff,

He is the everlasting father, who is more than enough.

 

He is the prince of peace; yes a peacemaker is he,

He is my eyes, my light, my pathway, when I can’t see.

He is my mighty counselor when I need advice,

He is my debt consolidator, for He paid the ultimate price.

 

He is my hope for tomorrow,

He is my ever-flowing income,

so I don’t have to beg, steal, nor borrow.

He is the mercy, which He renews for me every day,

He is my truth, my life, the only way.

 

He is the warden, who unlocks the chains and sets me free,

He is my role model, for I always look up to thee.

He is the author, the finisher of my faith,

He is the patience that always tells me to wait.

 

Jesus is my everything,

although with my natural eyes, Him, I cannot see,

Jesus is my everything, my everything,

everything I want to be.

 

Jesus is my everything,

all the time, every day of the year

So when I wake up the morning

I will tell Him that He is my everything

 

When I am about to close my eyes to sleep,

I will tell Him that He is my Everything

 

And even if death should take me

And worms have destroyed my body

Yet in my flesh I shall see Jesus

And I shall tell Him face to face

Jesus, You are my everything!

The End Time Prophecy About Middle East

lord_of_glory

Special message from bibles4mideast.com

It is the end time harvest. Our Lord will be returning to take His bride on glory at any time. Before His return we have to reach the Gospel to the unreached, especially Muslim world. Because of that we don’t fear death and persecutions for His names’ sake. Still harvest is plenty and the laborers are few.

Our Lord has given us clear information about the Middle East through the prophecies.  Within 5 to 7 years, there will be an absolute devastating for the Arabian Peninsula. The oil fields will burn and even some countries will disappear.

And our Lord will break the power of Islam in order to set the Nations in the Middle East free. Some Nations will turn entirely to the Lord. The Glory of the Lord will be such, that thousands, even those with nuclear infection will be healed!

Bibles for Mideast timely ministering by the guidance of the Holy Spirit for this great breakthrough and the end time harvest.

WE ASK PRAYERS FROM THOSE WHO ARE WAITING HIS SOON COMING ON GLORY.

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1Thess 5:2-6).

Anti-Christian Testifies Jesus Holding Bible in One Hand And Unusual Stomach in Other Hand

Picture:  Thankappan

Report: bibles4mideast.com

His name is Thankappan. He was a taxi driver in South Asia. He never liked Christian missionaries, because he was a fanatic Hindu and an active member of anti-christian movement. He often spoke out against Christianity and even organized people near Hindu temples to challenge the evangelistic activities of Christians.

Once he burnt a Christian leaflet before the public when an evangelist trying to convey him the message of Gospel. Another time he argued with an evangelist and  slapped him unnecessarily.

But Christ Jesus captured him and made use of him as a good vessel in His vineyard. And today he testifies Jesus as a miraculous man.

One day when he was driving his taxi just few years ago, he happened to drive near a Gospel meeting in a street corner conducted by Pastor Paul of the Bibles for Mideast  (http://bibles4mideast.com),   who was a convert from Islam to Christianity. He noticed a former Muslim and a former Hindu also witnessing for Christ in that meeting. This enraged him. He got so angry. He spit at the meeting through his car window.

At that very moment – while his anger distracted him — his car was hit by a large truck and he sustained substantial injuries.  He was hospitalized as a comma stage.

His intestines, both small and large came out of the stomach cavity. Doctors tried their best, but were unable to replace the intestines in their original position. They had not even 0.01% hope he would survive. So they created a pouch outside his body and just simply kept intestines together as a pack and stitched the stomach.  which hangs below his waist.

After few days, while still in the coma, something remarkable happened. He had a vision that Jesus Christ touched him and said, “I am giving you life again. Confess your sins and become my witness.”

When Thankappan opened his eyes, he saw Pastor Paul praying over him. Others, including his wife, stood nearby with tears in their eyes, expecting his death at any moment.

Though he had been unable to speak, he slowly opened his mouth and said to Pastor Paul, “Pastor, I spat at you. I spat at Jesus Christ. I persecuted the Lord Jesus and His servants. Forgive me. Forgive me. Ask my Lord to forgive me.”  Then he began to weep deeply.

A short time later, someone called for the doctor. He was amazed to see Thankappan had emerged from the coma, speaking and crying.

“This is a great miracle!” doctor exclaimed. Thankappan healed totally from that time onwards.

After healing, he was baptized and became an evangelist, distributing tracts and literature and witnessing about Jesus  all over the city.  His wife also became a believer and helping him for the ministries.

When he is preaching on street corners, he holds the Bible in one hand and reveals his unusual stomach as part of his testimony. “I was an enemy of Christians, but Jesus Christ loved me, made me alive and saved me from sin and death. Now I am His servant,” he declares.

During his testimonies he says , “I was persecuting Christians; but Lord Jesus showed me how He mightily fighting for His children. And I am a clear example for that.”

His children are living with their own families. They were against of his Christian faith. But now they all accepted Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Still Thankappan drives cars for his livelihood along with involving with our Lord’s ministries.

Pray for him and his entire family that they would continue to be used mightily as a witness for the Lord.

LORD I CAN’T EVEN WALK ……….

savedbygod

Lord I can’t even walk…

I can’t even walk without You holding my hand

I thought that number one, would surely be me

I thought I would be,

what I wanted to be I thought I could build,

on loftiest sinking sand,

but I can’t even walk, without You holding my hand.

 

Let me see the hands that feel like that tonight

I thought that I could do a lot on my own

I thought I could make it, all–alone

I thought of myself as a mighty big man

but I found out later that

I can’t even walk without You holding my hand.

 

As simple as it may seem, we can’t even walk

without the Lord holding our hands.

May I testify? One Sunday I met Jesus, my all and all,

from now on–when I’m in trouble,

I can’t speak for you tonight,

But only His name I’ll call, and if I don’t trust in Him.

I’ll be less than a man, because

I can’t even walk without You holding my hand.

 

Those of you that feel that way tonight,

help us sing the course one last time.

Lord I can’t even walk, without You holding my hand.

 

Sometimes I sit about all by myself.

Lord I can’t even walk, without You holding my hand.

 

How many of you tell the Lord like that sometimes?

Can’t do without the Lord tonight.

The mountain is too high, and the valley is too wide

Down on my knees, thank you Lord.

I’ve learned to stand because,

I can’t even walk without You holding my… hand.

Father Tom Uzhunnalil requests help to save him from terrorists

fr.tom  fr-tom

Fr. Tom earlier picture (left), latest (right)

Report: bibles4mideast.com

A video with Father Tom Uzhunnalil, an Indian Catholic priest has been released by his captors in which the abducted Indian priest calls upon Pope Francis and also the President and the Prime Minister of India to do more to save him. In the video, Fr. Tom says noting is being done to save him, may be because he is an Indian.

Fr. Tom was working in a retirement home run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in Port City of Edan in Yemen back on March 4, when militants stormed his workplace, killing fifteen people, including four nuns. Fr. Tom was taken hostage.

His captors threatened to kill him almost immediately, while Church and government officials scrambled to locate him and determine if he was alive or dead. On Good Friday, the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Schonborn, said that Fr. Tom had been crucified. The news was shocking, but the premature report proved false.

Since then, there has been virtually no news about Fr. Tom. His loved ones have waited for news of his fate, unsure if they will see him alive ever again.

Now, the day after Christmas, Fr. Tom has appeared in a video made by his captors. His statements are painful to hear. It is obvious that Fr. Tom’s captors are wearing him down and he is losing hope.

“If I were a European priest, I would have been taken more seriously. I am from India. I am perhaps not considered of much value,” Fr. Tom said in the video.

“Dear Pope Francis, dear Holy Father, as a father please take care of my life. I am very much depressed. My health is deteriorating… I am very sad that nothing has been done seriously.”

“I am from India and not considered. Dear people, I pray you all, ask you all, beg you all to do your might to help me to save my life. I need hospitalization soon. Please come to my help quickly,” Fr. Tom begged.

For their part, Indian officials say they are working hard to secure his release, but that the process takes time. They have not specified what efforts are underway, or what demands the terrorists have.

For now, it remains up to the Indian government and Pope Francis to negotiate the release of Fr. Tom. It is up to the rest of us to do our part to secure his release though prayer. We must petition the Church and the government of India to do more to save Fr. Tom, a humble priest whose only purpose was to comfort the elderly. He does not deserve to be imprisoned for his Christian faith.

“We have spared no effort and we will spare no effort to secure Fr Tom’s release from captivity. The government will do everything to resolve to bring him back,” Sushama Swaraj, the External Affairs Minister of India tweeted after seeing Father Tom’s video.

Please pray for Tom Uzhunnalil’s soon release.
