Dear  Praying Partner:

  In the millennium the Lord Jesus Christ will rule the world from Zion. Only those who has  received the glorified bodies will see him in glory. The rest of the people will see only a cloud. “And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.”  Isaiah 4:5  (The word defence in Hebrew means to cover or veil.) This cloud covers the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ to protect the people from being killed by the glory of God. “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.” Ex 33:20

 The results of the 8000 tracts, we  distributed and send out in spring of this year, started to give results.  We are receiving mail and email, all the time until now in October. Some are writing and saying they have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior.

 We set the 15th of July to be a day of prayer, bible study, soul winning,  visitation, and hours of preaching. All preachers preached on one theme. “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:”  Col. 2:6  The results were a family joined the church and one of the young people came forward for baptism and I baptized him and he joined the church.

 Rami Ayyad, a born again Christain, was kidnapped last night by an unknown group directly after he closed the doors of the Bible Society  bookshop. A day before, Rami noted that a car with no plate numbers had been following him. News of his kidnap was reported to the main office after his family received a telephone call from him  saying that he had been taken by a group of people and will return home late that evening.  Rami's body had been found at a location near the  Bookshop in Gaza where he had spent most of his time running the bookshop. Signs of bullets and knife stabs could be clearly seen on his body.   Rami 26, leaves behind two young children , and a pregnant wife.

 Pray for us and for the Christian in our church and other churches who are witnessing every day to Jews, Catholics, Greek Orthodox,  Druze and Moslems.
