World events are crazy right now. Even as war breaks out, the Gospel is reaching people all over the world!
12 The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge, but He frustrates the words of the unfaithful [with truth].
On Sunday, I mentioned that Israel has 30,000+ professing Christians, but according to One For Israel, the responses and testimonies they receive daily from new seekers tell a different story. They believe that number “is just the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands more underground seekers and new believers still afraid to come forward with their faith.”
“In the most closed countries, from the Islamist Gaza Strip to the fields of Afghanistan,
social media reaches places no minister could ever preach.
This is where we make our stand, in the online streets of the Middle East.”
You might be wondering why One For Israel’s online footprint is so big. Israelis lead the world in social media usage. The average Israeli spends 11+ hours a day on social platforms, almost double the global average! Subsequently, their “market” is virtually everyone, including Bedouin Israelis. “In the last 50 years, illiteracy was reduced in the Bedouin community from 95% to 10%. Many are online today and can hear the Gospel from our online outreach.”
It’s amazing the avenues God uses to reach us. Who ever thought that the Pandemic would be so fruitful for the souls of mankind? May we pray for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha’Mashiach, to spread like wildfire in the Middle East, and may He use One For Israel as one of His vessels.
Abba, even before I visited Israel, I loved her. The rich history and the tangible historical sites are like a cord that ties my heart to her. Draw the people of Israel and her surrounding neighbors to Yourself, Lord Jesus. I look forward to the day when every knee will bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord. May it be soon. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Amen.
