What the LORD is doing...
Passover and Resurrection Sunday (First Fruits)
A Note From BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said,
"Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29)
But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20)
He is not here; for He is risen, as He said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay. (Matthew 28:6)
At the time of this writing Israel is under increasing lockdown, which is being enforced with fines and up to six months incarceration. The hospitals in Israel just cannot handle a widespread outbreak of this virus. So, all that is possible is being done to contain it. Eerily, it reminds me of our people being in their houses when the final plague swept across Egypt. Interestingly, a plague of millions or even billions of locusts from Africa have begun to sweep across the Middle East and are projected to cover Saudi Arabia, Yeman, the UAE countries, Iran, and Iraq. The charted path given by those who forecast such things say that it looks like they are going to avoid (pass over) Israel. And get this-the modern day Biblical plague will be covering these lands during Passover!
As Israeli believers in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) we see that we can do our part by not only obeying the laws and guidelines of our government-but also by prayerful intercession for the Land and People of Israel! Just like Moses stood between the dead and the living in intercession and the atonement of his day-Numbers 16-we stand between this plague and our people relying upon the atonement of the blood of the Lamb-Messiah Jesus.
So Moses said to Aaron, "Take a censer and put fire in it from the altar, put incense on it, and take it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them; for wrath has gone out from the Lord. The plague has begun." Then Aaron took it as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and already the plague had begun among the people. So he put in the incense and made atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living; so the plague was stopped. Numbers 16:46-48
With the blood of the Lamb on the doorposts of our hearts here in Israel, and wherever you are, we can be praying that this disruption of our normal Passover season will be an opportunity to share about the Passover Lamb Messiah Yeshua-and that this plague will pass over our Land very soon.
Thank you for your prayerful and financial support during this very difficult time. May our Savior and Lord also make this virus plague pass over you and your loved ones according to His mercy that endures forever!
Blessings, Dov Schwarz
Thank you from Janet, one of our BIB Partners here in Israel:
Dear "Blessing Israeli Believers",
I am so overwhelmed!!
You have poured out on us so abundantly and hilariously, your kindness and your generous gifts to me and my husband!! God Himself knows who you are, and He will not forget you!! I know that even so, some of you are likely also in need yourselves, especially now in these current days with the virus affecting world commerce, and yet in faith and love, you give!! I am overwhelmed!!
You remind me of the Macedonians:
2 Cor. 8 : 1-4 NKJV
"Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.
For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints."
You have and ARE ministering to the saints in Israel! My husband, a Jewish non-believer in Yeshua, who sees this witness of yours in Yeshua Messiah, was so amazed, he went and wrote a bagpipe tune and named it : "The Gift." (He writes a lot of music for the bagpipes, and is well known in international piping circles! We actually MET in a bagpipe band!) I am going to post the tune on "Watch Therefore TV" on facebook! This gives great glory to God our Father, and our beloved Bridegroom for sending this help from you, exactly when we needed it! (Our old rusty water pipes finally blew and we had to replace the lot!)
Soon, I hope, sooner rather than later, we shall all be together before Him rejoicing for all eternity, married to The Lamb of God!!
Thank you, thank you,
With overwhelming gratitude!!!
In Messiah our Saviour,
Janet and David

Romans 15:26-27 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal (material) things.
