Message of Hope in the ME [blog]

1 Comment


Everyone is talking about Middle East and North Africa these days. As in some celestial chess game, kings and rulers are falling down, and players are changing colors. There are blockades of news from outside, Internet is being cut as well as mobile services, in order for local leaders to regain strong grip of rule.

Amid the ongoing unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, Christian media organization TWR continues to deliver spiritual programming to the region, proclaiming the peace, hope and love of Jesus Christ. Producers are now preparing special programing to address the present situation. Broadcast in 22 countries where Arabic is spoken (both a local version and a classical Arabic) goes for 4 hours every day on MW/AM uninterrupted.

“There’s no doubt that the Middle East and North Africa region is in a state of turmoil and chaos,” says TWR’s Arabic Ministries leader. “What we see on the news – whether local, regional or international – is heartbreaking and can be quite alarming since we don’t know what the future holds for this region. People are boiling in anger, rebellion and hatred, and their wrath is being manifested in violent attacks on private and public sectors.”

“We are thankful that God is in control and focus on His promises and His Word in Philippians 4:6: ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God,’ the Arabic Ministries leader says.

“Please pray with us that the broadcast of God’s Word into the region would continue to have a profound and extensive impact on people in the region,” the leader adds. “Also pray for the safety of our teams in the region, and that they would be able to continue to do the work that He has called them to do. Pray that their lives—at all times—would reflect the Source of our peace.”

  1. What do you mean: “since we don’t know what the future holds for this region”? A reliable source in Egypt informs me that radical Muslims are trying te take over the whole Arab region in order to attack and destroy the nation of Israel. Besides that, the bible tells us that there a terrible times ahead for Israel and the entire world. So we do know what the future holds for this region, and for ourselves. From that point of view it would be better to spread a realistic message to the unsaved and tell them that the end is near and it is crucial to turn to Jesus nów… before it is to late. Jesus Himself spoke about that 2000 years ago. What’s keeping us from doing the same. The gospel is not a road to a happy and peacefull life, as a lot of Western preachers proclaim. It is a tough, painfull en heartbreaking war about lost souls, about life and death, heaven and hell. They need to know the truth, the real truth! That starts with telling them what the future holds for that particular region, and for there personal lives. Not a very cheerfull start, I must admit, but It’s the only way to open their eyes to the cross on which our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ gave His life in order to save us from hell and give us eternal life with Him.
    God bless you all, especially the workers of TWR and the people who are brave enough to go into the Arab countries and spread the gospel.
