Jesus Christ the Son of God and Savior. If you do not have a personal inward witness that the Blood of Jesus has redeemed you from this dark and twisted world this video will speak volumes to you.

I wanted to share this short video with all of you and encourage you to share it with all your friends and family members. It’s only 18 minutes long but it really packs a wallop and we have already received a lot of truly awesome comments:

 

– Hail to my LOVING GOD JESUS CHRIST! The GREAT I AM! – L.C.

 

– …… Joshua 24:15,”As For Me And My House, We Will Serve The LORD”

Listen To The Message Of The Cross; JESUS Did Give His Life For You.

Accept His Free Gift Of Eternal Salvation Today, ‘Being Left’ Behind Is Forever!

 

Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem, GOD Bless ISRAEL – RANJO517

 

– OH HOW I LOVE JESUS HE IS MY HERO AND I JUST CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HIM COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS COME QUICKLY IN JESUS NAME AMEN!!! – Cecil4god

 

–  WOW  THANK YOU AND GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY!! – Diva2dz

 

 

 

We prayerfully and humbly ask for your Support and help

 

Folks, each DVD that we make is made up of hundreds of static images video clips, the longer the video the more clips it takes to produce the finished product. The saying is really true that a picture is worth a thousand words, well, multiply that with a video clip made up of 100’s of pictures then it’s worth is even more. In the short video above, Our Time is Short, we used many of the video clips in our library to portray an idea or provoke a thought and we are always adding images and clips to our library so that we can keep our videos fresh and contemporary.

 

These video clips are very expensive, a 30 second clip can cost as much as a $100 dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the contents and the source. We purchase a lot of our clips in sets to help reduce the cost, sometimes you can get 20 to 30 clips as a set for a couple of hundred dollars.

 

One of the major suppliers of video clips, Digital Juice, is having a half price special on their animated video clips of which we use all the time, several of them were used in the above video. We have already purchased 14 of their 27 volumes that they have available, we would like to be able to purchase the remaining 13 volumes that they have available. They are normally $199.95 for each set but for the next few days they are only $99.95, so we would need about $1300 to purchase the remaining sets for our library. Would you please pray about helping us to make this purchase, we use these all the time and the bigger selection we have to choose from the better we are able to convey our message.

 

Our Mission Statement

 

Prophecy Update is a ministry solely dependent upon the grace of our Lord for support and direction. Its purpose is to distribute God’s word in the form of Bible study teaching materials on the web and through print and DVD’s as well other media applications as the Lord leads.

 

Our prayer is that you will be blessed through the material that we have produced and that it will increase your knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and through this you will draw closer to Him!

 

Informing

 

We pray that our website and various media resources that we have produced will help to keep you informed of current events and how they relate to Bible prophecy.

 

Inspiring

 

We pray that by being informed you will be inspired to draw closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 

Equipping

 

We endeavor to daily provide believers worldwide with sound doctrinal teaching and with the practical tools and scriptural perspectives needed to successfully tackle the myriad challenges of being salt and light in today’s world.

 

Connecting

 

We endeavor to provide relevant educational and informative inspirational tools that enable Christians around the globe to encourage and build one another up in the faith.

 

Are You Being Blessed Through This Ministry?

 

One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed and if that information inspires you and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers and open the eyes of non-believers and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.

 

Many of you have supported Prophecy Update for years and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I give God thanks for your support daily. Many of you are new readers, about 100 new readers sign up every week and have no idea that we need support. We will never guilt you into supporting this ministry and only ask for those who can cheerfully and willfully give. I know that times are tough and many times your support comes with great sacrifice, but I truly believe that in these tough times that the ministry of Prophecy Update is needed more than ever!

 

My prayer: Lord Jesus, I pray right now that you would touch the hearts of those that you would lift up to support this ministry and I pray that you would bless them and give them a heart and a fire and a passion to support this ministry. Lord Jesus I pray that you would bless them in return for their faithfulness beyond any measurable comprehension, wonderfully and abundantly exceeding any and all expectations! Lord Jesus I pray for those that already support this ministry through prayer and financial means that you would continue to bless them in the most amazing ways, that not only they would be blessed but also all those whom you have surrounded them with! In Jesus Name…Amen!

 

I ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with us to get the Word out and keep the world informed and help us to take advantage of this unique sales opportunity. Remember, your gift, no matter how small, does make a difference! You will be helping to touch lives, around the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, thanks to the internet your generosity carries a global impact! Please pray about giving $5, $10, $25 or more if possible each month or making a onetime gift. I know in these harsh economic times many of you just can’t afford to give financially but you can lift this ministry up in prayer daily!

Shamim Masih with Christian Students

Shamim Masih Reading to Christian-Pakistani Students

John R. Houk

© September 7, 2013

 

I have a friend and Brother in the Lord that does work among poverty stricken Christians in Islamic dominated Pakistan. The nation of Pakistan was originally founded as a secular state. However, over the decades dictators have made Pakistan an Islamic state with Sharia Law as the standard for the rule of law. That means any citizen of Pakistan that is not a Sunni Muslim is treated shabbily and too often with a threat to mortality.

 

Shamim faithfully sends articles with a Christian perspective on the treatment of Christians in Pakistan. The picture is not a pretty one. Here is a link to read many of Shamim’s articles on SlantRight 2.0.

 

Since Shamim is a Christian living in Pakistan he is also subject to discrimination other Christians experience in providing for his family. I pray Shamim forgives me for I am about to post a personal email that is a plea for financial assistance. I doubt that Shamim desired this plea to be posted in a public forum, BUT YOU NEED to read the same thing I did to understand the necessity of considering placing Shamim Masih on your regular donation list to enable his Ministry and Civil Rights work continues while his family has provision as well:

 

Dear Sir,

 

I am sorry, but it is urgent….. very first thing,,,,, Is there any money donated for me in the said request……. if not…. can you manage some money for me…. I am totally disappointed and dishearten…. I am totally penny less and nothing left to eat even….my kids have been struck from their respective school …. what else… should i say…….. in this situation if you can manage to send me some money for the time being…..

 

I sent some money via my PayPal account using the PayPal email delivery system. Shamim’s email: shamimpakistan@gmail.com. I believe I recall that Shamim does not have a lot of confidence in PayPal for a delivery system to reach Pakistan. So he has provided an International Method that gives choices depending on where you live in the world. Please send Shamim Masih some money. Shamim’s information is below.

Please Support Christian Worker-Journalist Shamim Masih


Shamim & Najma Masih 2

Below is a worthy request for support for the Christian worker/journalist Shamim Masih. Shamim is a frequent contributor to this blog which I do often cross post other places including social networks. Shamim does an awesome job in explaining what he does but I also included some information he sent last year during the Christmas season that I believe provides even more insight into Shamim’s servanthood for Christ Jesus to those starving the for the Good News.

 

In case you find the bank transfer methods Shamim provides to daunting you can use the SlantRight 2.0 PayPal donation BUTTON at the top of the Page – just make sure you specify that your support is for Shamim Masih so I can separate it from the funding that helps support my blogging efforts.

Dear in Christ,

 

I, Shamim Masih have continued my work writing for Pakistani Christians during a very difficult time period for the sake of my community in the country. I have been a leading voice for my community and was the first one who raised voice for Rimsha, a Christian girl accused in a blasphemy case in Islamabad. I have been to Karachi for the young boy Ryan Santana, and for Sawan Masih in Joseph Colony, Lahore.  I have been to Gojra in 2009, in Gujranwala, in Mardan, when a riot began against controversial film against Mohammad and protesters set ablaze a church. I have also been to Joseph Colony, Lahore and to Gujranwala after a month of this incident.

 

Other than this, I have been raising different issues Pakistani Christians are facing through my writings. People witness that I am pure voice of Pakistani Christians at a grass roots level. Unfortunately due to the lack of funds I couldn’t visit the couple in Gojra arrested in a blasphemy case.

 

My work remains unfunded adding limits to my success. However I hope that more of my regular readers who learn about the situation facing Pakistani Christians primarily through my writing, would be willing to donate towards my ongoing costs. If you feel you can spare a monthly donation why not join a small and I am praying a growing list of regular supporting donors by asking your banks to arrange a standing order for any amount you can spare each month. Each penny will be appreciated and the money will encourage continuing my work Pakistani Christians.

______________________

Shamim made a similar request about a year ago. That request has a few more details of Shamim and his wife Najma:

 

Greetings from Reformation for Empowerment and Alleviation of Poverty (REAP) Islamabad (REAP description from GlobalPeaceBuilders website). I work as freelance journalist and normally published in Assist News (ANS), Salem-News- USA, Pakistan Christmas Post (PCP) – USA, Continental News (France) and Global Christian Voice, (GVC) Holland. My primary aim is to raise Pakistani Christian’s persecutions, concern, and obviously their workings nationally and internationally.

 

REAPsharing prosperity is the name of our organization based in Islamabad.

 

Vision: REAP endeavors for creating cohesion, tolerance and unity amongst various segments of the society. It has a challenging task ahead in view of current situations of polarization, turmoil and confusion between different ethnic, linguistic, religious and vested interests. Therefore, REAP likes to significantly contribute in leading our nation towards social justice, solidarity, trust and tolerance.

 

Philosophy: REAP pledges to devote to promote interfaith harmony, women empowerment and strive for Alleviation of Poverty amongst our populations living below the poverty line, especially Christians. We emphasize on working hand in hand with all likeminded forces committed to achieve greater glory of God.

 

Mission: REAP focuses on women folk, school drop outs, special persons, drug addicts, abused children and exploited minority and low income groups. We support socio-economic support to all deprived classes living in habitats like camps, “katchi bastis” and slums. REAP eagerly conceives, vigorously executes and zealously implements programs and projects of national interests in all circumstances, conducive and otherwise.

 

History: REAP comprises a team of God fearing and dedicated professionals having over two decades of selflessly contributing towards education & training, earthquake and floods relief and awareness and advocacy programs and projects of diversified nature in the past.

 

Our track record is a hallmark of achievements and accomplishments in institutional strengthening and skills development. REAP is a beacon house of Media research, promotion and management.

 

Profile: REAP has all along struggled for improving quality of life to the poor masses and low income groups. We already have an experienced faculty willing to impart on the job, hands on vocational and technical training right at the corners of slums. Our think tank prepares strategic policies and our human resources wing helps employers in head hunting. The economist, engineers, medical doctors, journalists, teachers, literary persons, sociologists on our penal of Volunteers work round the clock to strengthen our philosophy and mission. In addition, REAP also works with women and children through providing them an education, a vocational training center, medical camps and a nutritional feeding program.

 

 

Coats of Love:

 

REAP-sharing prosperity: Shamim and Najma live in Islamabad, Pakistan where they work to Alleviate Poverty.  The pioneers are raising money to provide 5,000 children living in the slum settlements in northern Pakistan with coats and blankets this December [i.e. in 2012].

 

Winter brings severely cold weather to the people of northern Pakistan. Many families living in tents and don’t have proper livings. Their children don’t have warm clothes like coats or sweaters. Many families have only one blanket to share among all of their children, and unfortunately many families do not have a blanket at all and warm clothes.

 

A small act of kindness- such as providing a warm clothes and blanket can be blessing and show God’s love in a practical way.

 

Now we are raising money to provide 5,000 people especially for northern areas of the country with blankets and warm clothes. Many of the people are considered least reached or unreached [Even though this request was applicable to 2012 I suspect this an annual situation].

 

Each blanket or coat costs $ 10.00 and will be delivered to a needy family this winter. You can make a donation at………….. [SEE ABOVE BANK TRANSFER INFORMATION]

 

Thank you for showing God’s love to some of Pakistan’s least reached through a tangible act of compassion.
