ANOTHER NETWORK IS BORN!   >>
“IN THAT DAY ISRAEL WILL BE ONE OF THREE WITH EGYPT AND ASSYRIA — A BLESSING IN THE MIDST OF THE LAND, WHOM THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL BLESS, SAYING, ‘BLESSED BE EGYPT MY PEOPLE, AND ASSYRIA THE WORK OF MY HANDS AND ISRAEL MY INHERITANCE.’” Isa. 19:24, 25 NKJV

PRAISE THE LORD! Remember when we got excited when just one more TV station came on the air? Actually, I still do! But now with well over 6,000 TV and cable stations on the air, fed by 46 great satellites (and still growing), what really gets us excited these days? Well, how about another whole TV NETWORK aimed at the heart of the MIDDLE EAST!

Yes, Benny Hinn Ministries has agreed to take one whole channel from TBN’s satellite and program it in the cultures and languages of the Middle East! TBN will supply technical services, plus uplink and master control facilities to reach this vast area 24 hours a day! Benny was born in Israel and knows the ways to reach over ONE BILLION SOULS better than anyone. Actually, this area is covered NOW in English on TBN’s Hotbird 6 satellite, but multitudes do not understand English — so we need Arabic for the Arabs, Hebrew for the Jews, Urdi for the Pakistanis, and Farsi for the Iranians! Wow! A tall order, but by the grace of God we all, together, can do it!

TBN will also help by providing some of the programming. We have already translated our movies into Hebrew and Arabic. We will begin translation of more of our programs like “Praise the Lord” and others. Dear Benny is translating his “This is Your Day,” program, plus producing new and different specials and movies. Yes, say it with me —

“MIDDLE EAST HERE WE COME!”

Better yet, hear the prophet Jeremiah:

“HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, O YE NATIONS, AND DECLARE IT IN THE ISLES AFAR OFF….” Jer. 31:10

Praise God, prophecy is being fulfilled so quickly it takes our breath away! Israel has been regathered as a nation in the land prophesied by Isaiah and many of the Old Testament prophets. No, peace has not yet come because Jerusalem has become that “BURDENSOME STONE” as prophesied by Zechariah:

“AND IN THAT DAY I WILL MAKE JERUSALEM A BURDENSOME STONE FOR ALL PEOPLE: ALL THAT BURDEN THEMSELVES WITH IT SHALL BE CUT IN PIECES, THOUGH ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH BE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST IT.” Zech. 12:3

How I wish I could say that things over there will get better, but according to the Word of God, it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better! The good news: it will get better — there is a “road map to peace,” but the political leaders of today cannot bring that longed for peace. In fact, in the Scripture above there is a dire warning! It warns that any and all who seek to force the peace of Jerusalem —

“SHALL BE CUT IN PIECES”! Zech. 12:3 So where do we go from here? The prophet Isaiah gives us a chilling scenario of events to come:

“HOWL YE; FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND; IT SHALL COME AS A DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY.” Isa. 13:6

While some of the events described in chapter 13 related to things in Isaiah’s day, we will see clearly that much of this prophecy is future and deals with events soon to occur in our day! Brace yourself as we delve deeper into the prophecy.

“BEHOLD, THE DAY OF THE LORD COMETH, CRUEL BOTH WITH WRATH AND FIERCE ANGER, TO LAY THE LAND DESOLATE: AND HE SHALL DESTROY THE SINNERS THEREOF OUT OF IT.” Isa. 13:9

Believe me — God has, as we say, just about “had it,” with the enemies of Israel and particularly Jerusalem! Yes, God is of great mercy, but the time finally comes when mercy ends, and the wrath of God is poured out!

Right here let me pause to say that while most Arab nations are the enemies of Israel, not all Arabs are! This is a very important point. Of the vast Arab population, only a small minority are the radical terrorist kind. Estimates range from two percent to ten percent of the nearly two billion Arabs, worldwide. But woe, woe to that minority whose goal is the elimination of the Jewish state! They are the focal point of God’s wrath that will soon be poured out!

“FOR THE STARS OF HEAVEN…SHALL NOT GIVE THEIR LIGHT: THE SUN SHALL BE DARKENED…AND THE MOON SHALL NOT CAUSE HER LIGHT TO SHINE.” Isa. 13:10

Sounds pretty bad, does it not? Brace yourself again — it gets worse:

“AND I WILL PUNISH THE WORLD FOR THEIR EVIL, AND THE WICKED FOR THEIR INIQUITY; AND I WILL CAUSE THE ARROGANCY OF THE PROUD TO CEASE, AND WILL LAY LOW THE HAUGHTINESS OF THE TERRIBLE [OR TYRANTS].” Isa. 13:11

And finally an event so fearsome, we know that it is yet to come —

“THEREFORE I WILL SHAKE THE HEAVENS, AND THE EARTH SHALL REMOVE OUT OF HER PLACE, IN THE WRATH OF THE LORD OF HOSTS, AND IN THE DAY OF HIS FIERCE ANGER.” Isa. 13:13

As Isaiah moves on in his prophecy we see clearly the coming of the Lord, but finally He gives us one last horrifying glimpse of the last gasp of planet earth, just before He returns:

“THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH DO SHAKE. THE EARTH IS UTTERLY BROKEN DOWN, THE EARTH IS CLEAN DISSOLVED [OR SPLIT OPEN], THE EARTH IS MOVED [OR SHAKEN] EXCEEDINGLY. THE EARTH SHALL REEL TO AND FRO LIKE A DRUNKARD…. IT SHALL FALL, AND NOT RISE AGAIN.” Isa. 24:18-20

WOW! I do not want to be here when this happens, and I truly believe we will be with Jesus when it does! Finally, Isaiah tells us that right after all these horrors —

“THEN THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL REIGN IN MOUNT ZION, AND IN JERUSALEM, AND BEFORE HIS ANCIENTS GLORIOUSLY.” Isa. 24:23

Yes, peace is coming to the Middle East and to the world, but in God’s time and in God’s way! Until then, as I say often — WE HAVE A BIG JOB TO DO! This is why God has given us TBN, His Voice to the world! This is why another whole network to target the Middle East!

As I was writing this letter, I heard from my elder sister, Naomi, whose son Ricky lives and ministers in Jerusalem. He reports that many, especially young Jewish people, are coming to know their true Messiah! He reports that they are having awesome prayer meetings where many are being gloriously filled with the precious Holy Spirit! Praise the Lord!

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of meeting Pope Shenouda III, head of ten million Coptic Christians in Egypt. He gave me a glowing report of the growth of the church not only in Egypt, but around the world. He went on to say that he and the church leaders are urging adherents to be “filled with the Holy Spirit”! I said, “Your holiness, you will have me believing you are Pentecostal!” With that he threw his head back with a holy and sincere laugh!

Ah, dear partners — the final Harvest is pouring in — a blind man can see it! Your TBN is exploding with growth worldwide! Now with 6,265 stations fed by 46 satellite footprints! At this rate we are averaging about one station a day! Praise the Lord!

Yes, Jan and I love you and need you NOW as never before! Another whole NETWORK has to be supported. Do you love souls? I know you do! Your special love gift will bring God’s blessing and reward to YOU, plus millions more will now hear the Gospel in their own languages and culture!

Yes, we will meet you — “Just inside the Eastern Gate over there,” when the “LORD OF HOSTS SHALL REIGN IN JERUSALEM GLORIOUSLY”!

North, South, East,West… let’s “preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere”!

How fitting that our new Middle East TV network will be called “The Healing Network.” It will reach Arabs and Jews throughout the Middle East—including Jerusalem!

Shortly after TBN started, God put a burden to reach the Middle East into Paul and Jan’s hearts. In 1980 they met with Israeli Prime Minster Menachem Begin and presented him with a scroll of support signed by 1 million TBN partners.

In 1995, TBN built a TV station in Bethlehem. Paul rejoiced as he gave his report standing on the TV tower. Sadly, the station was destroyed by radical elements, but that didn’t stop God’s plan—today TBN is coming in now on every satellite dish! Praise the Lord!

While in Baghdad, Paul and Matt stood in front of Saddam Hussein’s FORMER military parade grounds. NOTHING can stop the Gospel from reaching the people of Iraq and the entire Middle East!
