What the LORD is doing...
Dear Blessing Israeli Believers Friends and Partners,
"Happy New Year" is the common phrase for this time of year. However, while it may or may not be a "Happy" 2020 for some ~ for those who are participating in the Lord's prophetic plans and purposes, we have something about which to be very HAPPY!! Keep in mind Israel is the center of Bible Prophecy.
Today, and thankfully temporarily, much of our land and many of our people are in darkness. During this brief window between the time of darkness and the glorious light of the soon coming Kingdom of Messiah Yeshua-we have this incredible opportunity. We can participate prayerfully and financially with those who are the shining light to Israel today-Israeli Believers in Messiah Jesus! Remember what our Savior told the first Israeli Believers:
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
There are so many unique challenges associated with living in Israel - especially as a disciple of Messiah Yeshua. That is one reason I have said for years that one of our goals is that the last thing our Israeli Believing Partners and myself would have to think about is money. We have families to support, ministry expenses associated with our Kingdom work, and a very high cost of living in Israel. Remember what this work is: getting out the gospel, making disciples, ministry to needy and Holocaust survivors, saving babies from abortion-and so much more!
Dov's Special 2020 Announcement!
We enter the New Year with great excitement as we are participating with the Holy Spirit, along with a few friends from our Home Bible study, in making a new disciple in Messiah Jesus! What an honor to be involved with this man's life by sharing the gospel and upon him receiving Yeshua as his Savior, baptizing him in the Jordan River! His first name is Omer-please be praying for him.
A Bible Prophecy Update/Reminder
The burden against Damascus.
"Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.
Damascus is one of the world's most ancient cities and the things written in this passage have not yet happened. However, since Israel's War of Independence and the Scriptural prophetic fulfillment of Israel's physical re-birth as a nation, Syria has been begging for the LORD's judgment. Their headquartering of the world's worst terror actors through the years is about to come to an end.
Isaiah prophesies about this time, which I was reminded of last night by what is becoming a more common occurrence in our neck of the woods. We live on a mountain by the Sea of Galilee and one evening close to midnight we heard the familiar sounds of IAF (Israeli Air Force) jets overhead. I figured they were headed to or back from Syria. These days Israel is frequently bombing the outskirts of Damascus, which is being used as an Iranian hub for weapons and troop transfers to encircle Israel from Lebanon to Syria in the North.
Literally minutes after we heard the sound of the planes over our house we watched as a reporter on FOX News announced the airstrikes on Damascus. Folks, your prayers and support are a true Kingdom partnership of Bible Prophecy leaping off the pages onto the TV screens all over the world-Hallelujah! We often stand outside-with arms stretched toward our Northern borders as we intercede for Israel and pray according to the Biblically relevant passages of Scripture. With that in mind-let's keep going together for King Yeshua-our great Savior Jesus!
Blessings, Dov Schwarz
A special Thank You from one of our partners, Janet in Haifa
Greetings to the partners of "Blessing Israeli Believers"! You really DO bless Israeli believers! I am so grateful for your kindness and generosity; my life would be very different without it!
You know, I had recently gotten quite discouraged and despairing about the burden of being the sole money earner at my age, the difficulty to make it to the end of each month, and I was questioning the Lord why this burden He has given me to bear. His answer to my fears, anxieties and depression was to give me a vivid revelation of the EXPENSE my salvation cost Himself personally. He accepted the Father's cup of wrath for my sin, even though He had asked if that cup could be passed by Him!! He was bruised, beaten, He was cursed and spat on while He carried that heavy splintery wood cross on His back flayed open by the Roman scourge. And He trudged step after blood stained step up to Golgotha to be nailed onto that wood, and experience the horror of separation from the God and Father He loved. Separation that was due me. I saw that any cost of my obedience to His will would never come close in comparison to the exorbitant cost of His obedience to the Father's will for my sake. I am absolutely silenced. And His promise:
"Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you" (Isaiah 46:4).
I continue to work at Ebenezer Home for elderly believing Jews and Arabs, these mover/shakers from the early years of building the body of Yeshua in the land of Israel. It is a pleasure and an honor to care for these elder brothers and sisters! They laid the foundations in the ministries that thrive and expand today.
Last Shabbat we had our outreach effort in Haifa during "Chag HaChagim" (Holiday of Holidays) the inter-congregational Christmas festival that draws many non-believing Israelis and tourists. I led worship and did prayer cover with other intercessors for the evangelism team that went out into the crowds. I also continue to play guitar and sing on our worship team for our Shabbat meetings.
May God greatly bless you all, and visit you with a great and fresh revelation of Himself! May His presence be manifest in all your lives!

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.
