This week, I went to the movie http://godsnotdeadthemovie.com/ as a birthday present from my wife. We agreed that it was well done, for being low budget. At one point, a little too well done. However, we both also acknowledged that for Muslims it may be very frontal as it addressed the harsh rejection people face when they leave muhammed to follow Jesus, outside the camp.
The following morning, I woke after dreaming that I came down a main traffic artery in town where I often encounter Muslims on the busses. Right at the mall on the route in the middle of the avenue and stretching miles beyond, were “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision.” They were led by Arabian women in full Hijab & Niqab with camels accompanying them carrying treasure. All the crowds were seeking Jesus. Lord, may it happen soon!!
The story below reminds me of what Paul said to the Romans about when Israel has faith in the Messiah, it will lead to life from the dead. They aren’t there yet 100%, and so we pray & speak to the nations.
From Bibles for Israel:
Israeli Doctors Save Jordanian Boy
"Heal the sick, raise the dead.… Freely you have received; freely give." (Matthew 10:8)
Last week, even as the Jordanian parliament was calling for the ousting of Israel’s envoy to Jordan (due to the self-defense killing of a Jordanian judge at the Allenby Bridge crossing), Israeli doctors at Haifa's Rambam Medical Center provided a 7-year-old Jordanian boy with his mother's donated kidney.
After the boy faced critical kidney failure, his parents wrote a request to the Civil Administration Health Services for the operation to go forward at Rambam Medical Center. (Israel National News)
Civil Administration Health Services Coordinator Dalia Bessa hurried them past the waiting lines.
"We direct many patients from Jordan and the Palestinian Authority to Rambam and other hospitals as well," Bessa said. "In the past year alone, I coordinated the arrival of 600 patients from the PA to Rambam." (Israel Hayom)
Israel isn’t only helping Palestinians and Jordanians.
It also runs a field hospital near the Golan Heights, where the Syrian Free Army transfers victims of the Syrian conflict. As well, Israel has treated about 1,000 Syrians in four hospitals. (The New Zealand Herald)
Rebecca Sieff Hospital (Ziv Hospital) in Safed has housed some of these victims—including an 8-year-old Syrian girl named Aya, who received five reconstructive surgeries on her shattered leg and was provided a brace to help her heal.
"All patients are immediately being seen by social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists as soon as their medical condition allows," Sara Paperin of the Rebecca Sieff Hospital's international-affairs department said. “With families that need to be reunited or children that are alone, there is clearly special attention given to them."
