What the LORD is doing...

A Note From BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz

Things have changed dramatically in the short time since our last update. It is difficult to understand how much we are truly living in a different season in Israel and the world! A passage from the Psalms explains it perfectly.

If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?
The LORD is in His holy temple,
The LORD's throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men." (Psalm 11:3-4)

In eternity I believe we will understand the full extent of the dark and evil environment, full of troubles, through which we lived. In such a short time the foundations on which we stood have been shaken and uprooted. Yet, this passage reminds us that our Abba Father and our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) sits on our Father's throne in His heavenly temple.

The LORD is using these events, amongst other things, to test the inhabitants of the earth. One of things I remind myself is that the LORD cannot and will not curse what He has blessed or bless what He has cursed. He will always be true and faithful to His own holy character and His holy word! So, we know He will bless what He has promised to bless.

Thankfully, our dear prayer and financial partners in the nations understand this as well. If ever there was a time to clearly define and understand what is pleasing to the God of Heaven and to walk in those things-it is now! Certainly, one of those things is Blessing Israeli Believers in Messiah Jesus! Here are just a few verses of Scripture that pertain to Israeli Believers.

"I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)

"For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors.
For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to
them in material things. (Romans 15:26-27)

"Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved." (Romans 10:1)

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!"
(Romans 10:14-15)

I am also reminded of the faithful prayer partners who receive this letter. That being the case, I am going to give an update on critical prayer and financial needs that are facing Israel in general and Israeli disciples of Messiah Yeshua as well. Thanks once again for your faithful obedience to the Lord and His word.

Israel is leading the world in distributing the vaccine in the Promised Land. Our government is very strongly urging all to get their two dose shots. Many are not comfortable with the risks of the vaccine and the strong-arm tactics being used to implement it. This is causing division in the body of Messiah here in Israel as there are leaders and those in congregations on both sides of this discussion. Along with whatever the Holy Spirit leads-please pray for wisdom, truth, and unity to prevail.

Israel has been locked down more than any nation in the world. Since the virus issue began we have been locked down 139 days! Along with all the emotional and mental effects, our economy is suffering terribly. So many are hurting financially which is causing despair and potential unrest. Please pray that the witness of our Israeli believing partners would be an agent of salvation and discipleship in Messiah Jesus at this time. As you can imagine, our Israeli partners are more than ever so thankful for your support.

Since the new American administration is cozying back up again with Iran the winds of war are blowing again in that direction here in the Mid-East. High-ranking Israeli military officials are discussing drawing up more plans to hit Iran's nuclear program should the American administration re-enter the previously cancelled nuclear agreement. As Israeli disciples of Messiah Yeshua we are praying and standing for peace within our borders.

Most agree that a war against Iran would likely also involve Hezbollah who has about 150,000 rockets pointed at Israel from Lebanon and Syria. If a full-fledged war like this broke out many experts believe the casualties would be catastrophic! Thankfully, the One who never slumbers or sleeps is watching over this Land. PLEASE PRAY!

I must say, I am so thankful to our Heavenly Father and encouraged by so many who faithfully are hearing from Him in these troubled times. To the contrary of shrinking back, many are faithfully praying and financially supporting our Israeli brothers and sisters in the faith of Messiah Yeshua. I will close with a special promise to you!

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." (Galatians 6:9-10)

What the LORD is doing...

We at Blessing Israeli Believers are looking forward to 2021 with great anticipation even in the midst of the challenges we face in these troubled times. Thankfully, ours is an "all weather" faith in the Faithful One Messiah Yeshua! Having said that, we think it is fitting to start the year with testimonies from a few of many whom we together support here in Israel both prayerfully and financially.

Happy 2021 from Dov Schwarz and John McTernan,
Co-Founders Blessing Israeli Believers

Update from Ezra & Shulamite, Golan Heights

Praise & Prayer
2020 has been a difficult year like no other in our generation yet even at its darkest moments the love of God has shone through His servants. Through your prayers and sacrificial giving we were able to distribute blood pressure monitors this month to those over 80 yrs old in our community as well as food baskets.

Olga received a BPM and has asked us to visit her again as she desires to hear about the God of Israel. Others have also asked us to visit them on a weekly basis as Covid 19 has made them feel isolated, some who believe and others who are seeking the truth about the promised Messiah.

We were blessed to be able to meet with the Holocaust Survivors before Israel enters it 3rd major lockdown. What a blessing to see God working in the life of Larisa, who came to faith through these meetings 1.5 years ago and is now sharing her faith.

Larisa is also part of a group of our women who volunteer 2 days a week for the military, cleaning weapons, making alterations to uniforms and whatever else is needed. All while praying and sharing the love of Messiah with all who see the light within them. PRAISE THE LORD!

Update from Oded Shoshani - King of Kings, Hebrew Congregation

God's Faithful Provision
Throughout these months of the coronavirus we have been assisting some of our congregants in financial need. Together with this we also have seen how the Lord is supplying in a supernatural way to some of our congregants.

One family in which both spouses lost their job were living off of savings. Last week we asked them how they are doing financially and they shared that the Lord has been blessing them so much in the last few months that they are actually able to help others in financial need! Thank you for standing with us in prayer.

Baptisms
Praise the Lord this Friday we will be able to baptize one of the young adults who has been preparing! After such a long time waiting we are delighted to see this special step fulfilled. Thank you for your prayers for protection and peace and a fresh pouring out of the Holy Spirit!

Update from Ariel & Shayla, Tree of Life Ministry Team

"I Will Give You a New Heart" Written by Eliel
We've been continuing to reach out to Shlomit and praying with her. She is searching for Jesus Yeshua from an ultra-Orthodox Jewish background, and God has been working in amazing ways. After many phone calls, she has finally decided to put her faith in Yeshua as the Messiah! Hallelujah! She is actually considering making a public statement of her faith in Yeshua - even though it would almost certainly mean being completely cut off from her family and community!

In our latest talks, she was asking questions about how to build a strong relationship with Yeshua. I started to teach her about worshipping God in song, and shared one of my favorite songs with her, "Worthy of It All." She responded, "Wow, this is so new for me!"

She also wanted to learn more about prayer, so I taught her The Lord's Prayer. Whenever we pray together, she talks with Yeshua with such amazing freedom! It's wonderful to see her hunger for Yeshua and how she is excitedly reading the Word of God.

She recently said, "There's so much life in the New Testament!" Her heart has truly come to life! It reminds me of Ezekiel 36:24-28 - God has given her "a new heart and a new spirit"! At the end of our last talk when we prayed together, this is what she prayed:

"God, sometimes I think, 'Why am I doing this to my family, why am I causing so much trouble?' But then, when I think of what You did for me, how can I deny You? Thank You Jesus that I feel so much freedom in You and that I am no longer under the burden of the Law."

I could hear how genuine her prayer was! She's not struggling to find righteousness through the Law but has found it in Yeshua! Afterwards, she said she needed to go - she was eager to get off the call so that she could spend more time with Yeshua!

May our Savior Yeshua be praised for these powerful testimonies! Dov Schwarz

What the LORD is doing...

A Note From BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz

Our Blessed Assignments from Heaven for Israel-A Year End Exhortation

It is one thing to be told what to do-yet it is much better to be told what to do by the Almighty Creator of the Universe along with a promised blessing for doing so! As disciples of Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus) we have assignments from our Heavenly Abba Father that directly pertain to Israel. These promises begin at the beginning...in Genesis.

I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
Genesis 12:3

Our spiritual/earthly Father Abraham received seven perfect promises from the LORD of heaven that are passed down to Isaac, Jacob/Israel and the children of Israel. The promise of blessing those who bless the children of Israel is certainly for today as it is part of what the Bible calls "the everlasting covenant." (Psalm 105:9,10) Just think, an increasingly cursed world that collectively stands with its fist in the air in God's face cannot stop me from being blessed! Why - How? It is because the promises of the LORD are an expression of His grace and where sin has abounded-grace has abounded all the more! (Romans 5:20)

So then, here are a few reminders of how important it is to prayerfully and actively bless Israel:

We are commanded to love and care about Jerusalem. It truly is the city of our great King Yeshua over which He wept and to where He is returning. (Matthew 5:35, Luke 19:41) We are reminded that if we love Jerusalem we do not need to follow after prosperity-prosperity will follow after us!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May they prosper who love you.
Psalm 122:6

I have set watchmen on your walls,
O Jerusalem;They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:6-7

We sometimes need to be reminded that the Holy Spirit inspired the words of the Bible and the Holy Spirit perfectly represents the heart of our Heavenly Father and our Messiah Yeshua. Bearing that in mind, see the heart of the LORD in the words of one of three chapters Paul wrote in the book of Romans pertaining to Israel.

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel
is that they may be saved. Romans 10:1

Also in Romans you find a BIB foundational passage showing the responsibility given to Gentile disciples to help Israeli Believers in Messiah Yeshua. This mandate was out of existence while Israel was dormant. But now, Israel is back, Israeli Believers are back, and this principle is alive and well also-that of Blessing Israeli Believers!

But now I am going to Jerusalem to minister to the saints. For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things. Romans 15:25-27

Certainly, our Blessing Israeli Believers partners and myself are your partners on the ground here in the Promised Land doing all these things and MUCH MORE! We are getting out the gospel, making disciples, saving babies from abortion, and helping Holocaust Survivors in the Holy and Powerful Name of Yeshua! And what a blessing, you are right in the middle of all these things with your prayers and financial support. Let's be reminded- in all these things may our Savior Yeshua be praised as it is only fitting for Him to receive all the glory, honor, and praise!

As we close out this year-for those of you who are our prayer and financial faith partners-always know that we love and bless you in our Savior's Name! This year Jews, and even a few Muslims, in Israel have come to faith through our partnership! Many who have not yet come to faith have received great seeds and watering from which our Savior may give the increase anytime! We have covered Jerusalem in prayer and watched over and warned where necessary as it pertains to Jerusalem, and we have ministered together in spiritual and practical ways to many Israeli Believers in Messiah Yeshua!

Also remember, we believe next year will be even better because in Messiah Yeshua the best is yet to come!!! So again, you are being blessed by covenant promises as you have stood with us this year. Why? We have learned one of the best ways to bless Israel is by Blessing Israeli Believers In Messiah Yeshua!

In Messiah Yeshua, our soon coming King! Dov Schwarz

What the LORD is doing...

A Note From Blessing Israeli Believers Co-Founder Dov Schwarz

Our partnership in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) here in Israel with you in the Nations has so many facets and out-workings. We love, share, and pray which is lived out in different ways through our ministry partners here on the ground. All of it would be empty if our Savior and His Gospel were not at the center of our activities - and Hallelujah - He is!
It is my joy and pleasure to share a few powerful passages of Scripture and a personal testimony of four different Israelis with whom in the last few weeks I was able to share our Jewish Messiah.

"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes,
for the Jew first and also for the Greek." Romans 1:16

"Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech- unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains un-lifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord,
the veil is taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:12-16

First, we are reminded by these passages that the only hope for our Jewish people in this life and the next is that they be forgiven for their sins and saved through our Messiah Yeshua. Next, we see though the world and even some in church try to shame us from sharing the Gospel with Israelis-we must not be ashamed of the Gospel as it is Abba Father's power for salvation to the Jew first and then for the Nations. And then, we need to use wisdom because a uniquely hindering veil truly is over the eyes of Israel that can only be removed by our Adonai Yeshua (Lord Jesus) Himself!

My New Hair Stylist
Due to the Covid lockdown I had to find someone in our little village in the mountains to cut my hair. This sweet Israeli man, who speaks English very well, was a delight to spend time with-and he gave me a really good haircut! Yet, the best part of our discussion was about our very different faith perspectives. Very quickly, we agreed not to get upset with one another as we explained to each other what we believe about God.

I challenged him that his faith is not very Jewish as it takes on the same most important concepts of the Gentile religions. He has not yet understood that simply trying to be a good person, and doing good things for God, and confessing his wrongdoing was not enough to spend eternity with the LORD. I then explained through the Passover testimony that he needed the blood of the Lamb to be applied to the doorpost of his heart to satisfy the wrath of Elohim (God) for his sins. And, that Messiah Yeshua is the Passover Lamb. Well, since the veil is over his eyes he did not get it-YET. Lord willing, he is what we call a pre-believing Israeli.

One of My Hebrew Language Instructors
I have shared the gospel with this precious Israeli man a few times. In addition to modern/conversational Hebrew, he has also taught me some Biblical Hebrew as He agreed to teach me John's third chapter line upon line in Hebrew! Yet, our most recent faith discussion involved the Resurrection of Messiah Jesus. He did not yet realize or understand that the New Covenant Bible teaches that Messiah Yeshua rose from the grave on the third day. It was another opportunity to water seeds previously planted-Hallelujah!

Two Very Different Self Defense Instructors With The Same Age Old Problem-Their Need For The Savior!
Truly, more than I need self defense training, which I used to take many years ago, the Lord has given me a special opportunity! When you live amongst the two most resistant to the Gospel people groups in the world-you have to be creative regarding potentially fruitful interaction opportunities with Jewish people and Muslims.

So, I have two Israeli self-defense instructors who live in different cities. One is a religious Jewish man and the other a moderately religious Muslim. Both have become my dear friends, which makes me want to see them saved even more! One does not like me to speak about Messiah Jesus, which I do anyway, sparingly with fervently prayed for wisdom, and with the other-we frequently have very open and deep discussions about our faith. It is a perfect scenario when compared to the Romans 1:16 principle of the Gospel to the Jew first and then to the Greek-in this context meaning the Gentile.

Having heard these things, let's go full circle back to the beginning of this letter. Along with our Israeli believing partners -- you are co-laborers with me/us to be this kind of witness here in Israel during this critical generation! Your prayers and financial support help us TREMENDOUSLY to take these opportunities as the Lord raises them up for us-and He does on a regular basis! And, there is nothing like watching precious Israelis get on their knees and pray to receive Yeshua as their personal Savior and Messiah-which I have witnessed here in this Promised Land!

So then, please join me in prayer for these four you have heard about in this letter-along with the many others who are hearing, seeing, and experiencing the gospel through our Israeli believing partners. And, thank you once again for hearing from and obeying the Holy Spirit with financial support-which is even more critical during this difficult time in Israel.

In all these things, may Messiah Yeshua's Name be praised! Dov Schwarz

What the LORD is doing...

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.
John 12:46

Once again, I want to say that I am so very blessed to be a Jewish disciple of Messiah Yeshua -partnering with precious Israeli Believers here in the Promised Land during this critical hour of time. And I am also so blessed to be partnering here in the Land with precious believing partners all over the world - we truly are Team Yeshua for such a time as this!

As you read this update from our partners - please remember (and pray accordingly) that at the time of this writing Israel is in a full lockdown with some of the worst Coronavirus numbers in the world. Incidentally, our Israeli healthcare system and hospital network was overwhelmed before the virus. Our Kingdom partnership at this time is more important than ever and truly together we are shining the bright light of Israel's only hope - our Messiah Yeshua!

A Word of Thankfulness from one of our Partners in Haifa

Greetings in Yeshua to all of you at "Blessing Israeli Believers"!

Thank you for your faithful help during these very hard times that are affecting you and the whole world! I am still privileged to play on our worship team (with Dov's son Yaakov) as we "gather" via "live feed" on youtube.

The nursing home I serve at continues to be so blessed with protection by the Lord from corona!! The staff gets tested once a week by Magen David Adom. There are stories in the news about other nursing homes in Haifa, and around Israel, that have as many as half their residents infected with the corona virus, so we consider ourselves miraculously blessed!

Our CEO, head nurse, house mother and house managers are very serious about the application of the Department of Health rules and regulations, and our staff is serious in compliance. We pray before shifts, and praise the Lord for His blessings and continued covering! In one of our recent inspections, the Dept. of Health representatives remarked that they didn't even feel they needed to enter the premises to look around, for they already knew that all would be in order!!! That was just such a huge compliment to Jonny our CEO, and all of the staff!!

Thank you blessed people once again, and may the Lord watch over you and keep you safe from "the pestilence that lurks in darkness".

Love and appreciation, Janet

Update from Ariel & Shayla, Haifa Israel

We've had about 6 times as many orders of New Testaments and evangelistic materials in the last 2 months compared to usual! God is stirring a hunger in Israelis to know the Messiah!

Here are a few of the many marvelous stories:

A man named Haggai ordered the New Testament and an evangelistic book. When Eliel called him, he said, "I'm kind of busy - I'm in the back seat during a driving lesson."

But then, surprisingly, he began talking with great boldness about Jesus, Yeshua. Eliel asked him if the books had arrived and he said, "Yes, I'm really glad to have received the New Testament, and I'm reading it!" Eliel asked, "What do you think about Yeshua?" He responded, "Wow, based on what I'm reading, Yeshua's amazing!"

Just a few years ago, most Israelis weren't willing to talk about Yeshua at all. Now they're extolling Him in the middle of a driving lesson in front of their non-believing friends! The Good News is spreading and God is changing hearts!

***************************************
A lady in her 50's named Niba made an order on our website, and when we spoke with her we could see she was very open to Yeshua. We sensed that she's really searching for the truth, and she even asked, "Is there some kind of group I can join that learns more about Yeshua?"

We've connected her with a women's Bible study group that is being held online now because of the virus. Lord-willing, she will connect personally with believers in her area soon as well.

***************************************
A few days ago a prominent Israeli rabbi ordered an evangelistic book from us about Isaiah 53 and the Messiah!

This rabbi - we'll call him Nathan - is especially known for his prophecies, and loves speaking about the Messiah. Often, when people see our Isaiah 53 video, they order this same book in order to learn more. Maybe this rabbi is beginning to see that his own "prophecies" weren't in line with what God Himself had said about the Messiah in the Tanakh, Old Testament.

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5-6

We wrote him a personal letter explaining how the Jewish leaders rejected their own Messiah - "The stone whom the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone" (Psalm 118:22), yet now many Israelis are beginning to look upon Him whom we pierced (Zechariah 12:10). We encouraged him with God's promise: "And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13).

His organization runs multiple educational institutions across the country, including those training future rabbis, and is estimated to have property worth about $30 million. This man is a "teacher of teachers." Let's pray that he will become like the Apostle Paul, turning to the Light of Messiah and passionately declaring the Gospel!

What the LORD is doing...

A note from BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz
Dear friends,

This month's letter is full of uplifting and blessed reports, which are fitting given the season we are in on the calendar. The Jewish month of Elul is one of prayer and repentance leading to the Fall Holidays Yom Teruah--Day of Blowing Trumpets (traditionally Rosh Hashanah), Yom Kippur-Day of Atonement, and Succot-Feast of Booths or Tabernacles beginning Mid-September. We pray your lives will be full of the presence and eternal blessings of Messiah Yeshua during this special season.

Update from Melech Ha'Mlachim, Hebrew Congregation -
King of Kings, Jerusalem
Pastor Oded Shoshani & David Boskey

Dear BIB Partners,

We are thrilled to update you on how the support of BIB has enabled us to bless a local family here in Jerusalem who faithfully attends our congregation.

You recently sent a special gift to help the M family who welcomed the births of twin boys into their home roughly a year ago. While H receives some disability from the government due to several health issues, he is unable to adequately work to fully support his family. On top of the health issues, the M family recently had to move apartments. Your support both enabled them to have a stress-free move as well as some crucial food cards to subsidize their financial setbacks.

We greatly appreciate the consistency with which you empower us to be our Lord's hands and feet to the needy saints in our midst. We ask that our God would continue to bless you all and your ministry that channels God's support to the local Body.

Update from Efraim & Jeannie, Nahariyya, Israel

Shalom! - ! שלום Blessings and peace to youall during these days of pandemic and uncertainty. "The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him." Exodus 15:2

On August 1st we returned to Israel directly into a government mandated quarantine of 14 days. What a 'welcome home' after being away from home for five months. Our planned Sabbatical was different than we expected (Proverbs 16:9). Instead of doing all of the many things that we had planned, we were sheltered in place for the whole time with our son and his family. We had a wonderful time with the grandchildren, which, was something we had hoped for, just not in the way we expected.

Here in Israel, Covid-19 is still running rampant and the government is considering ways to curb the effects of the virus. People will be praying fervently during the month of Elul for the Lord God to stop the pandemic and
seeking forgiveness through His mercy. Pray that with all that is going on in Israel and the world, this would be a real time of repentance and turning to God.

Update from Ariel & Shayla, Haifa Israel

Yeshua Heals a Muslim Lady!
A couple of days ago Shayla, the kids and I went to a park. I had been praying fervently that the Lord would open a door to share the Gospel that day as we were out and about. When I saw a Muslim woman with a crutch going by with her family I knew the Lord wanted us to reach out to them.

We walked over, greeted them and said, " We noticed that you have a crutch and we wanted to see if we could pray for you. We've seen God heal many times."

They were intrigued by this and wanted to hear more about us first. After sharing some, Shayla and our girls laid hands on her and prayed in Yeshua's name.

We asked her to gently try something that would usually hurt and see if it still hurt. She had broken her leg and had surgery and whenever her foot would be pushed back toward her shin in physical therapy it would give her excruciating pain. So she asked her husband to push her foot back a tiny bit. Surprised, she said "A bit more...now more...more..." He pushed it back as far as it would go, but she didn't hurt anymore!

This opened up the door to share the Gospel with them for about 1.5 hours! Praise God! One of their family members was very intellectual and well versed in religions and philosophies so it was quite an in-depth and challenging discussion, but I saw God working in their hearts. Although we've had a number of opportunities to reach out to Muslims, I was stirred by this encounter to learn more about how to share the Gospel more effectively with them.

Please pray for this Muslim family and others like them - that God would stir our hearts as believers to reach out to these precious people, just like Yeshua reached out to the Samaritans as well as to the Jewish people, and that there would be revival in their midst, just as there was in Samaria (see John 4)!

Update from Ezra & Shulamite, Golan Heights, Israel

We wanted to take this time to introduce you to Victor, a Holocaust Survivor, from FSU (Former Soviet Union) who has graduated to heaven earlier this month. It was through the demonstration of your love and prayers that prepared Victor's heart to hear and receive the Word resulting in his accepting Yeshua as his personal Lord and Messiah.

Victor truly is a new creation with new desires, he only read his Bible, or listened to worship music every day for the last year of his life. Please continue to pray for the Holocaust Survivors in our town to receive Yeshua.

Victor said, "God has given me one more birthday to celebrate with a few of my close friends, until we meet in heaven."

What the LORD is doing...

An Encouraging Update From Dov Schwarz Co-Founder Blessing Israeli Believers

Our Adonai Yeshua (Lord Jesus) has taught me something about His grace and mercy that is full of His presence in these difficult times. Oh, please hear this: His presence will overtake the darkness and discouragement of these times! That "something" is "grace giving" directed where He is powerfully and prophetically working.

Sea of Galilee

I could give you so many examples, but here is a simple one that helped me sleep with a smile on my face recently. I was getting ready for bed-it was late and I had just glanced at a very difficult headline in the Jerusalem Post. The sad article, which was no fun to read just before going to bed, stated that about 50% of Israelis do not know how they are going to make it financially because of the Corona Virus economic downturn.

Truly, what the Lord did then turned my frown-upside down! I found myself asking Abba Father in heaven a question and I believe I was asking by the fullness of the PRESENCE of His Holy Spirit through Messiah Yeshua. As I was putting on my pajamas I looked up and asked Abba if there was any Israeli believer in Messiah Yeshua I needed to help beyond our normal monthly support we had already given.

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)

I was asking our Heavenly Father about someone in the household of faith here in Israel who He knew needed help so that I could be an agent of His love, grace, and mercy for them. We Israeli believers are so thankful for the warmhearted Christians who love Israel-and most here would not mention this-but often times Christian support to Israel leaves out the Israeli believers in Messiah Jesus. Again, we are so thankful for the outpouring of love and support for Israel-but we also believe like the Scripture above states-that it is best to start with the support of believers in Messiah Jesus.

Well, back to my testimony. I went to bed and was half asleep when my wife nudged me as she was reading a recent email on her phone she had not seen. The email was from a precious Israeli believing family who really needed financial help. We know them, they are very special people, and we have not been in contact with them for a while. As I listened to my wife read the email I was immediately reminded of the prayer from just minutes earlier. I told my wife with a rejoicing smile on my face of my prayer and our opportunity to be involved with some provision at the hands of our Savior Yeshua!

That night I did not go to sleep with the sadness of a bad news article - I went to sleep with the good news of Messiah Jesus! And remember something, many of you reading this article are just as involved in this grace and mercy from our Savior for this precious believing family as we are here in Israel! And maybe you have not done so yet, but you can begin to prayerfully and financially join us now in Blessing Israeli Believers.

One more thing before you hear from Helen-the wife and mother of this family who sent my wife the email requesting assistance. You should have heard her voice when I called her the next day - Oh what rejoicing in our Savior King Yeshua! She and their entire family were so thankful to our Lord and also for you who are agents of His grace and mercy!

An update from Helen & Eldad living in Israel

Dear Blessing Israeli Believers,

On behalf of my family I would like to thank Blessing Israeli Believers for blessing our family with much-needed financial aid during the Coronavirus pandemic these past few months. Your generous support has enabled us to provide for our family during this crisis. I would especially like to thank Dov for hearing and acting on God's answers to his prayers!

We are a Messianic Jewish Believing family living in Israel. We have four children, with miracle baby number five due in September! Six years ago my husband Eldad contracted a virus that attacked his peripheral nervous system, a condition that leaves him unable to walk without aid. Eldad continues to experience pain and is still walking with a leg brace. But we have seen an improvement in his health, and he is recovering.

In September 2016, we were the first-place winners of the First Fruits Business Plan Competition. We invested our fantastic cash prize into founding our business Lily-Pops. We produce 100% all natural frozen pops. We are a small family business with a very big heart. Over the past four years we have overcome numerous challenges. However, while the world around us remains turbulent, we keep trusting in the Lord because He is our strength.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic which caused complete lockdown from March 2020, Lily-Pops launched an on-line, Facebook and Instagram advertising campaign. In April and May 2020, Blessing Israeli Believers very kindly reached out to our family and asked if we needed help during the lockdown. We were so grateful to receive funds from Blessing Israeli Believers. The Israeli economy has suffered, and we have noticed that our on-line sales have drastically slowed down. Despite our healthy business attitude and passion to succeed we are struggling to keep our business up and running and provide for our family.

On behalf of my family, thank you so very, very much for always walking with us, for praying for us and for loving us as your family in Yeshua. Thank you for supporting Blessing Israeli Believers, your kindness and generosity has touched our lives in so many ways!

We thank God for His Goodness and His provision and for using everyone at BIB and BIB's supporters for reaching out and blessing our family.

In Messiah's Joy, Helen and Eldad and family

What the LORD is doing...

A Note From BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz

 

 

As I was prayerfully considering what to share with you regarding our lives, partnership, and ministry in Messiah Yeshua here in Israel, all I could think about is two words - GIVE THANKS! These words are throughout the Bible, yet see how they are repeated in Psalm 107:

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 107:1

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:15

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:21

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:31

One of the great things about understanding Bible prophecy, including how it relates to Israel and the Nations, is that while it may appear that everything is falling apart-we know the opposite is true! Just like the shepherd boy David needed a Goliath to help him become King David, and since our Savior Messiah Yeshua needed a cross to save us from our sins and to become the Resurrected King of Glory, these difficult times for us will be our opportunity to shine and give glory to our Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

We who live in this critical generation will receive eternal rewards directly associated with our faithfulness to believe and abide in our risen Savior Yeshua! Having said that, where should we start? I want to lead by example and commit this letter to giving thanks.

I am so very thankful for our Father in Heaven who has given me eternal life in Messiah Yeshua-every day I am thanking Him for saving me! Let's thank Him and draw near to Him with gratitude and thanksgiving. Remember, we who have been born again have ETERNAL LIFE!

I am so very thankful our LORD has given us the opportunities to have many Kingdom purposes during this special hour of time. Here are just some: disciples/witnesses of Messiah Yeshua, fathers, mothers, children, gospel ministers, righteous servants, neighbors, and more! Here is a question: What are your Kingdom purposes for which you are thankful? Count your many blessings one by one...

I truly am thankful our Savior raised up this ministry Blessing Israeli Believers! I am so grateful to have such ministry partners here in Israel. It is truly amazing to see how such a tiny percentage of our nation's population is successfully carrying out such a great mission. Along with being a holy preserving influence in the Promised Land-our partners are getting out the gospel, making disciples, saving babies from abortion, helping Holocaust Survivors in Messiah Yeshua's Name, helping poor saints in Israel-and much more!

Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel:
"Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea,The remnant will be saved.
For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness,
Because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth."
And as Isaiah said before:
"Unless the Lord of Sabaoth (Hosts) had left us a seed,
We would have become like Sodom,
And we would have been made like Gomorrah." Romans 9:27-29

I am also thankful, almost beyond words but I will try, for YOU! ~ our BIB partners in the nations! Many of you truly have tapped into our Heavenly Father's heart:

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that
they may be saved. Romans 10:1

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all,
especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10

For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things. Romans 15:26-27

Truly, I know my help comes from the LORD, Maker of heaven and earth. However, I am so very thankful that He has raised up such faithful ministry partners in the nations who help us so faithfully and generously. We pray for you often and know, according to Bible promises, that you are tremendously blessed. I want to end my note with two words to so many of you: THANK YOU!!!

From Beit Tfilah, House of Prayer - Golan Heights
Comfort, comfort My people... Isaiah 40:1

After 3 months of living in a world with Covid-19 many things have changed. The most difficult change for us is social distancing in other words the lack of personal interaction. We went from total lockdown and holding 10 meetings a week using today's technology to having meetings in our garden and finally in our facility. Things never stopped they just changed, as my Pastor always said, "Blessed are the flexible they will not break." Thanks to the support of Blessing Israeli Believers we were able to distribute shower chairs and food to the Holocaust Survivors bringing the chur

ch to them at this time.

Praise & Prayer
We praise the Lord for all of your prayers and sacrificial giving during this difficult time. Many good things have transpired during lockdown such as more family time and individuals drawing closer to the Lord, there has also been more prayer and interaction by every one in our meetings.

Please pray for our town as Israelis from the cities are coming up north to enjoy the beauty and solitude, but also bringing Covid-19 with them. Our schools have re-locked down because of infections and we are adapting to the new normal.

We are so thankful for our special Israeli Believing Partners here in the Promised Land. We are equally thankful for our praying and giving Partners in the Nations. Let's rejoice together in Messiah Yeshua in the gospel outreach, discipleship, and helping the poor saints here in Israel that you will see in this Blessing Israeli Believers partner update!

Update from King of Kings Hebrew Congregation, Jerusalem

Shalom Dov,

David Boskey here again - an elder at Melech Ha'Mlachim Congregation in Jerusalem who works alongside Oded Shoshani. Much has happened since our last correspondence and we wanted to continue to thank you for the support that Melech Ha'Mlachim is receiving from Blessing Israeli Believers.

Through your giving we have been able to support another single mother with 4 children. Her single status is a recent and heartbreaking development that we are walking through with her. Apart from having to move apartments amid this turmoil, she suffers from certain physical disabilities that make working a significant challenge. Even so, the government's assessment of her limitations does not put her in a category where she can receive ample financial assistance. She has placed herself under our oversight and through support from Blessing Israeli Believers we are able to help her through this difficult time.

Thank you so very much for holding up our arms so that we can administer God's love directly to the needy. We pray that God will continue to bless you all and your ministry that channels God's support to the local Body.

Update from Efraim & Jeannie, Northern Israel

Dear Friends,

Shalom! Blessings of health, strength and hope for the future to you. Usually we write these updates with a sense of anticipation of what lies ahead for us and our ministry, but these are times where the immediate future is unsure. In
times like these, we have a sure word of hope found in the Scriptures. I have been finding comfort in the opening verses of Psalm 91:1-3:

My Refuge and My Fortress
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.

The troubles from plagues, pestilence and wars were experienced personally by the psalmist. However, there was the biblical history of the people of Israel recording all that the people of Israel had lived through. In the midst of trials and tribulation, our peace and protection come from the Lord.

The psalmist gives the assurance that the Lord God watches over those who seek shelter in His love. As we follow the Lord we are living in a sure and secure place; we are in His Place. Twice, he makes reference to where we dwell. Three times are references that the Lord is our refuge, fortress and deliverer. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul summarized this by saying:

"If the Lord is with us, who can stand against us?" (Romans 8:31)

Update from Ariel & Shayla, Haifa Israel

Shalom Friends! We pray you're doing well!

An ultra-Orthodox man named Jacob saw our evangelistic videos and said that he hasn't been able to stop thinking about Yeshua since then. He spoke with one of our staff and then with me, and many times when we read together with him verses about the Messianic prophecies or about the Gospel, he said "Wow," and these truths amazed him. When we weren't in the office for a few days, he called 30 times! Apparently you could say that he is hungry for the truth!

He started reading the New Testament and had a lot of questions. He's also
started praying together with us, and even asked us to pray for him over and over in Yeshua's name, because he could feel something happening.

He even was quite open to how the Tanakh shows that the Messiah is God Himself. He prayed in his own words: "God, if Yeshua isn't the Messiah, then show me quickly. If he is the Messiah, then show me even more quickly!"

It seems to me that perhaps he's already persuaded in his mind that Yeshua is the Messiah, but his difficulty is with the cost of following Him. He understands that he could lose everything, including his wife and many children. He brought up the topic of Yeshua to his wife, and she responded severely: "Don't ever say that word! Don't ever talk about him!"

Please pray for him, that Yeshua would reveal Himself to him in an indisputable way, and that he would have the courage to take the difficult step and give his life to Yeshua. Please pray that the Lord will guide us in every conversation with him! And let's pray that there will be many more like him from the ultra-Orthodox community!

What the LORD is doing...

A Reminder and Encouragement from BIB Co-Founder, Dov Schwarz

It is days like these that test and purify our faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). All of Psalm 91 is such an important Bible chapter upon which to meditate. For brevity's sake I have included and bolded three places in which the Coronavirus is mentioned. Let's do the first two things-dwell and abide-and then thankfully experience the promised protection.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust."
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
Psalm 91:1-3

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
Psalm 91:5-6

No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:10-12

Update from Ariel & Shayla in Haifa Israel
The Gospel goes viral in Israel during coronavirus!

In these days of uncertainty, one thing is sure: God is still at work and His Word is not quarantined! In the midst of this coronavirus crisis, with all its real challenges, there's also something incredible that God is doing.
The world is being shaken! Economies are collapsing, healthcare systems are overwhelmed, governments are perplexed, and many are full of fear and uncertainty. Now is the time for us, as children of God, to rise up, demonstrate His love, and spread the Good News of hope and eternal life found in Messiah!

Amazingly, since the crisis started in Israel, we've reached twice as many Israelis with the Gospel per day! We're excited to see what God will continue to do as we follow up with them!

One surprising conversation we had was with a young man from Bnei Barak, one of two most ultra-Orthodox cities in Israel. He saw our videos, then started mocking us, but at the end of the conversation, he asked us to send him the New Testament!

Another Orthodox Jewish man named Judah called and said, "I'm confused. All my life I've been religious, but something is missing for me." He was looking for something real.

And secular man named Asaf asked three good questions in a row: "What does God want? How can I have a relationship with God? And how do you give your heart to God?"

One lady we reached out to, named Alona, told us her tragic story: She lost her father, then her brother, then her husband left her and their baby. Then when her mother came to live with her and help, she suddenly had a stroke. Alona was broken, lonely and disappointed with God. We listened, then read Isaiah 61 together, how Yeshua, Jesus, came "To preach good tidings to the poor...to heal the brokenhearted...to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes."

We shared some testimonies of how God used losses in our lives to help us see our need for Him, and how Yeshua's given us new life through His death. After we prayed for her, she smiled and said, "Wow, I feel like something good happened in my soul!" She was glad to receive the New Testament and said she would begin reading it immediately. Please pray for these and many other precious Israelis. Pray that God will open many more hearts through online evangelism and in the upcoming outreaches to the poor!

Remember, when Paul was in "quarantine," he used the time to write letters still transforming lives until today. Let's use this crisis as an opportunity to draw closer to God than ever before, and to bring His Kingdom here on earth.

We'd like to say to all those who are standing with us in prayer and support, thank you from the bottom of our heart. You're an important part of the harvest here. We deeply appreciate it and don't take it for granted!

Update from Beit Tfilah, House of prayer
Comfort, comfort My people... Isaiah. 40:1

The world is facing an unprecedented situation in our lifetime where people are faced with many uncertainties. I love what my Pastor used to say, "When faced with the unknown fall back on that which you know," that God is still on the throne. He still is a God who tells us to cast all our cares on Him, because He cares for us. We want to thank all of you for standing with us, enabling us to continue distributing food to the Holocaust Survivors and we were able to purchase them shower chairs & BP Monitors.
