By Dick Brogden The confluence of events that started in 2020 and extend now into 2021 have blessed us by reminding us that we are in the last days. The technology, thinking, immorality, tensions, wickedness, global connectedness and cooperation, and circumstances of our times have clearly revealed the imminent possibility of what was prophesied in…

The heavenly choir is, well, heavenly. Comprised of the nations of the world, it now sings as it warms towards the crescendo that will announce and accompany the return of Jesus Christ to reign. “What’s that unusual note?” a glorified African singer asks. “I have not heard one quite like that before. It’s unusually beautiful,…

By Dick Brogden Some see demons everywhere; some see them nowhere. To some, spiritual warfare is code for everything unpleasant, while to others, it is a curiosity from far away or long ago that has no impact on our daily life. In the Live Dead movement, we have committed to living the crucified life, and…

By Dick Brogden Recently a worker here in the Arabian Peninsula had to be sent home for conduct unbecoming to a minister of the gospel. Whenever sinful choices lead to tragic consequences and difficult decisions, we should pause and examine our own hearts and hedges—as “there, but for the grace of God, go I.” The…

It is a most interesting phenomenon. Here in Saudi Arabia we are seeing more Muslims come to Jesus during the COVID-19 season than at any prior time. This is true in our personal and team experience, and it’s true across the entire country. Those who elected to endure, despite limitations, have been inundated with the…

John Piper said, “Go, send, or disobey.” (Prayer is a given.) So why is there such a dearth of workers in the harvest field of the unreached? I’m sure individuals offer many reasons, but to me, as one living in America, a few reasons stand out: security, comfort, and materialism. The American dream is to…

There is one primary way to compassionately touch the world, and it is not popular. If, in all things, we take our cues from Jesus, we must respond in compassion as He did, not as is convenient for us. In Matthew 9:35, Jesus went through cities and villages teaching, proclaiming the gospel, and healing every…

Because Jesus is the supreme beauty and goodness of eternity, it is altogether appropriate that everything we do exalts Him and lifts Him up. Strange it is then to read the verse: “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4:10). The humble part is to be expected,…

God is a missionary God. The Bible is a missionary book. We are to be His missionary people. The Scriptures are organized around the supreme goal of God being worshipped by every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. When you’ve never heard that the whole point of human history is that God be glorified, it sounds…

We took a look at some year-end stats from friends doing media ministry in North Africa. Here is what stood out: From an initial wide sowing of 200,000 (135,000 visits to Facebook and another 63,000 to the web), they established 3,027 contacts. A return of about 1.5 percent. From that 3,027, they met 196 persons…
