In the warm clear waters of the Arabian Sea, 18 former Muslims were baptized recently at an early morning service conducted by Bibles for Mideast.

The new believers had personally approached the ministry leaders and requested baptism. “They wanted to be purified in the Spirit and the Water to get ready to meet Jesus Christ – the Bridegroom, who is coming in the clouds soon to take His Bride,” says Pastor Paul. “Our Lord’s return is imminent, they all believe.”

After the baptism service the group worshiped together and celebrated the Lord’s Supper.

“During the worship service two women and a man from among the believers together prophesied in the Spirit to vacate the present shelter soon and move away to another place,” Pastor Paul reports.

Not knowing where the Holy Spirit was leading them, they obeyed the Lord and left the house where they stayed on July 17th and reached a new location a significant distance away from there.

In his farewell to them, Pastor Paul instructed the new believers and the voluntary ministers to conduct regular services and launch further ministries in their new location. “We promised that by God’s grace we would go there to do follow up ministries often and whenever they need our help.”

Little did Pastor Paul realize how God was protecting them in the move.

The following day Pastor Paul “heard the shocking news that some fanatics under a religious leader came to that house with bombs and guns late at night (before dawn July 18th), broke the door by gun shot and entered inside to kill everybody at the house,” he reports.

But praise be to God, they found nobody inside! The new believers had left less than 24 hours before the malevolent visit.

Frustrated beyond measure, the Islamic militants proceeded to destroy the house “with great anger and violence.”

“We praise and thank our Lord Jesus Christ that He cares for His servants as a hen protecting chicks with its wings. We praise and thank our Lord for His unspeakable gifts and mighty protection (2 Cor 9:15).

“We are in a new area. Pray for us and the people of this place and surrounding places to experience the salvation of Jesus Christ by God’s grace and God’s protection.”

“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles” (Ps 103: 1-5).

  1. See what is missing in MSM as well as independent ones? The ‘Whosoeverwill. God is not dead, and His Spirit is moving throughout the whole world.
    Praise Him.

  2. We, here in the USA need to be so in tune to the voice of the Holy Spirit and so close to the LORD Jesus Christ because the same thing could be happening to us in not so far future. If we don’t know when He speaks it could very well be the difference between life and death for us just as it was for those Followers of Jesus Christ.

  3. No, weapons formed against you will prosper, no evil shall befall you, and every arm that will be lifted against you by the wicked one will be broken. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is before You always. And youare advancing with Him in power and in His glory, taking territory and advancing the Kingdom of God with power and the fire of the Holy Spirit.
    To the praise and glory of our Heavenly Father. And to the Honor, praise, and glorification, and power to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

  4. PRAISE BE TO GOD! I thank God they obeyed the Holy Spirit! Not leaning to their understanding! Acknowledging His word of WARNING & instruction! Bless His Holy Name! I will pray for these to grow daily in the Love of God!

  5. Praise be to our Lord an Saviour, Jesus Christ, who died so that we can live forever with Him in glory! Amen

  6. Just had a dream where God told me to get out of a meeting. Saved my life, in my dream. Felt it was a word from the Lord “Hear my voice!!!”

  7. God be praised, all glory to him alone. I am sure that with this great miracle the faith of the convert will grow stronger and unshakeable in Jesus.

  8. I cried when I read this! Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. He indeed is worthy of our praise! Holy is His Name. Shalom!

  9. THANK YOU . THANK YOU LORD BECAUSE YOU PROTECT AND PROVIDE FOR THE ONES WHO BELIEVE IN YOU. WE CHRISTIANS BELIEVE IN THE MOVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BUT, WE NEED TO KEEP IT ACTIVE BY FASTING AND PRAYING NOT ONLY FOR OUR OWN GOOD WILL AND FOR OTHERS. ALWAYS , ALWAYS BRING UP THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

  10. What an Awesome testimonial to the God we serve. He protects us and watches over us..
    We must listen quietly because He’s always speaking to us and directing our path. Spend time in His Presence and become sensitive to His voice.. Amen, love to all

  11. Praise our Lord and please pray for peace in our world. Please pray the evil change and come to our God

  13. I give you Holy praise and thanks giving for your mighty deliverance for my new family in Christ.You are so wonderful and glorious my Lord and Savior. Lord lead them to a place of protection and safety. Provide Lord for them. There is no God like Jehovah!!!! Shout Hallelujah!!!

  14. The name of our God is a strong tower,the righteous runs into it and is safe. May the power of the Lord continue to manifest in the lives of His faithful ones all over the world as the Gospel of Jesus Christ continues to expand in leaps and bounds.

  15. This was a good reminder that we need to be able to let go of the material things in our life. Would we be willing to up and move in a moments notice? I fear the pull of our worldly goods will hold us in place….and perhaps be our downfall. Pray that this will not be so!!!
