What the LORD is doing...
Ministry Update – Pastor Oded Shoshani, Melech Hamlachim, Jerusalem
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of truth.”
1 Timothy 2:1-4
Paul told us that prayers and supplications for those in power are pleasing to the Lord. However, these prayers are not just so that we will line in peace and have a comfortable life, but that we would live in godliness and reverence. And if that were not enough, God wants us to pray for our governments, specifically those who rule, and His desire is for them to be saved. Sometimes the situation appears to be especially hopeless, and we are certain that terrible things will happen. While we know that God hears our prayers we feel that He is not answering them. In these exact moments, we must lift our eyes heavenward and cry out to Him, with prayer and worship and without relenting. This is our current situation in Israel today.
Please pray for protection for every innocent life in Israel! Please pray that the camp of the enemy would be divided and the plans for death and destruction would fail. Please pray that we would deeply know that the Angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them. (Psalm 34:7)
Please also pray that our nation would not feel self-righteous but turn to the Lord with tears of repentance.
The current extreme Knesset is moving in the direction of a legal revolution, not a reform! The revolution, if accomplished, will give the government new tools to act without checks and balances by the court system. It will also allow the government to persecute those who the government does not find acceptable. It also seems that the government is promoting a religious Jewish agenda in a way that we have not seen until recently. The chance of persecution against believers is increasing.
Please pray for wisdom for the government so that it will lead the whole nation. Please also pray for the work of the Holy Spirit to awaken the hearts of our people to seek the face of the Lord, and as they are weary from religion their eyes would be opened to the source of true Life.
With Much Love, Oded & Sandy
Praise & Prayer
By the grace of God we have been able to assist another family immigrating to Israel as they flee the war between Russia and the Ukraine.
Misha and his family took the step of faith and started their immigration application while in Israel. This means no new Olim benefits until they are approved to become Israeli citizens. This is where we were able to bless them with a free place to live for over a month during this process.
They are now Israeli citizens and are looking forward to attending Ulpan (Hebrew language school) and have decided to stay with us.
We held a Hanukkah Celebration with the Holocaust Survivors. It was a dinner party with poetry, skits, singing and even dancing. Pray for those who have not yet received Yeshua.
Our aunt Asiya 93 yrs old who lived with us and came to faith has gone to be with the Lord, as well as one of our elders Valodia. They both finished the race well and the Lord has already added 4 new people to the Fellowship to fill the gap.

A closing note from BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz

Having said that, here is the best way I can end this letter—THANK YOU!

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.
