Bible & News Weekly Roundup: Dec. 28, 2017. | Behold Israel

Bible & News Weekly Roundup: Dec. 28, 2017.

As we near the end of 2017, I wanted to thank you all for supporting and partnering with our ministry. It has been a fruitful year and we want to give God all the glory!

“…For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands…”
(Psalm 92:4)

Some of our 2017 milestones:

  • I visited over 15 countries on 4 different continents, sharing the Word of God with hungry believers, bringing clarity and understanding of the times and the seasons in which we live.
  • We passed 100,000 likes on our Behold Israel Facebook page.
  • Our Youtube presence has more than than tripled over the last year.
  • We are proud of having an active Japanese Youtube channel that continues to grow! We are working on two new channels, in Spanish and Chinese, which will be available soon. Stay tuned!
  • We have had over 150,000 downloads of our free app.
  • My Instagram now has over 20,000 followers. This is a great way to keep up with my family life, my Israel tours and global ministries. 

Ahead of Christmas and due to a large number of followers who were asking for my personal opinion on the topic “Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?“, I gave a live update on the subject, as well as a written Christmas message called “The Day He Was Born“. I recommend you watch and read both and I would appreciate it if you shared them with others.

This weekend, I will give an important Facebook Live end of the year and Middle East current events update. I will speak about our ministry’s accomplishments this year and current projects, followed by an update on the situation within and around Israel. Tune in this Saturday, December 30, 2017 at 10:00 pm (Israel time), 3:00 pm (EST), 12:00 pm (PST). As always, we will share this update on our Youtube channel.

Last week we shared my upcoming Philippines ministry tour schedule for January. Following my time in Asia, I will travel to teach alongside Pastor Jack Hibbs at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in California. We will be teaching during all three morning services on Sunday, January 28, 2018, as well as giving a special “Happening Now” service in the evening. These events will be streamed live, and we will be sure to share them with you.

Our Young Adults Israel Tour 2018 is open for registration! We are offering young adults a unique experience in Israel on June 1-10, 2018 to broaden their understanding, deepen their faith and strengthen their trust in God and His Word. Check out the promo!

By faith we have allocated ten scholarships for participants and we encourage you to pray about giving towards this important work.

We are in our final stages of deciding where our 2018 alumni tour will be. Our decision will be published shortly and I encourage those who have been to Israel with me before, who want to experience new and significant Biblical places, inside and outside of Israel, to prayerfully consider joining us.

Awaiting His Return,
