UK-USA Ministries: Bringing the Gospel to A Post-Christian England

I highly recommend this organization as worthy of your support. I absolutely love the concept. If you’ve ever considered getting involved in a ministry making a lasting impact to the glory of God, here’s a great opportunity to serve in a country which is unbelievably spiritually dark. Less than 5% of the population of England […]

Stalkers by HeartCry Missionary Society

These two men are messing with my family. This is going to stop. Click the photo for what these boys have done.

Every Christian Is A Missionary

Every Christian is commissioned, for every Christian is a missionary. It has been said that the Gospel is not merely something to come to church to hear, but something to go from the church to tell  – and we are all appointed to tell it. It has also been said, ‘Christianity began as a company […]

The Primary Business of the Christian

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”– I Peter 1:14-16 (NASB) Neither church planting, discipleship, apologetics, missionary […]

Persecuted Church Seeing Angels?

It was another Sunday. My family arrived to our meeting place of worship on time, maybe a little early. We took our usual seats. This Sunday would be a little different. It would include a presentation of the purposes of a particular missionary society and a special speaker from a foreign land. He would not […]

Gospel Hoarders

The church began in power, moved in power, and moved just long as she had power. When she no longer had power she dug in for safety and sought to conserve her gains. But her blessings were like the manna: when they tried to keep it overnight it bred worms and stank. – Rick Via […]

We Need How Many People to Pray?

The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. – James 5:16 In regards to seeing revival or a great work of God, do we need large numbers or entire congregations to be praying? Here is food for thought. About this matter of millions of people praying. How many people does God need to […]

The World Our Parish

“Wherever there is found a man, there is the minister free to preach. The whole world is our parish, we know of no fetter upon our feet, and no gag upon our lips. Though kings should pass laws, the servants of Christ can bear the penalty, but they cannot disobey their Master, though the Emperor […]

SIL/Wycliffe Bible Translators Deny Removing ‘Father’ & ‘Son’ from Bible Translations

Wycliffe Bible Translators, Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) and Frontiers are under fire for "producing Bibles that remove "Father," "Son" and "Son of God" because these terms are offensive to Muslims. According to some, Christians are being ‘set up’ to convert to Islam. Wycliffe is denying any such actions. However, the facts (pdf) seem to […]

Walid Bitar: Forsake Everything & Preach Christ to the Arabic World

He grew up in Lebanon, and became a Christian while living in California a number of years ago.  He has since lived in Beirut, Lebanon for the last 15 years where he […]

Christian Martyrdom or Christ?

In the Islamic religion, martyrdom is sought after. According to that false religion, it is a great honor and brings much glory. It is thus encouraged. This martyrdom, or (shahada) is closely related to jihad, or holy struggle. The Islamic concept of mediation and intercession (shafa’a) goes far beyond mere spiritual mediation and includes the […]

How to Experience Deeper & Higher Manifestations of God

Oh please. The Word of God commands, gives precepts or examples for believers of no such thing. Do you really desire to know the deep things of God? Go back to the Gospel and get a clearer view of the cross and what happened there. Do you seek or desire to experience a manifestation of […]

The Gift of Missiology?

Therefore it says, "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men." –Ephesians 4:8 I’m all for missions. What true Christian isn’t? But I’ve been thinking for quite some time now about all this ‘missiology’ talk. It’s a huge buzzword, at least for now, and careers are […]


Luke 10:1-3 says: After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest […]

Missions Cost How Much?

You have forgotten your history. How much money did the apostles spend to turn the world upside down? How much did Luther have to alter the entire course of Church History? How much money did Whitefield and Wesley have to turn England inside out? Search and look, and you will find that this is the […]

Kimyal–Grateful for the Word of God

The Battleground of Northern Mexico

A few days ago I received communication from a brother who lives on Falcon Lake, Texas. He is a fellow pastor, my friend, and one who happened to be ordained on the same day and in the same church as I. He has been proclaiming the Gospel in that area for many years. He recently […]
