  • 1. LEBANON FOR CHRISTLebanon for Christ is the motto of the campaign that we need tolaunch as soon as possible by the grace of the one who guides us,the Lord JESUS himself, after he had anointed us strongly by theholy spirit, sent us to fulfill his glory & to win the precious souls onhis heart, to help them receive his complete, miraculous salvation.To him be all the glory, power, dignity & glory forever more.Amen.
  • 2. Meaning of “Lebanon”: The name of Lebanon is derived from the root “Laban” that means“white”, some of them say it’s also derived from the root“Louban”& it means “Incense”.The concept of whiteness comes from the existence of the white snowthat exists on the pick of the high mountains during the six months ofthe year or from its caclaire white mountains.Jer 18:14 Shall the snow of Lebanon fail from the rock of the field? or shall the cold waters that flow down from afar be dried up? Whereas the concept of the incense is mentioned in the holy bible“smell of Lebanon” as an indication to the wax, the fragrance & theincense that smell from the forests of Lebanon & its woods.
  • 3. Hos14:6 "His branches shall spread, and hisbeauty shall be as the olive tree and his smellas Lebanon".And the 2 notions may be combined together in the word"Lebanon",referring to the pure white incense, "Frankincense", that the magihas offered to Christ at his birth.(Mat2: 11)"And when they were come into the house, theysaw the young child with Mary his mother, andfell down, and worshipped him: and when theyhad opened their treasures, they presented untohim gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh".the border of LebanonThe holy bible presents an accurate account about the border ofLebanon that is stretched from the northern hills of Galilee, north ofPalestine and it includes Mount Harmon (Mount Sheikh) known asSirion or Sneer (deut3: 9) & that is showing Damascus (song7: 4),& eastern mountain of Lebanon , behind him till the gateway ofHamah (Jos13: 5), it includes also the valley of Bekaa (Jos11: 17),& chain of western mountains parallel to the sea (1kin5: 9). Themost important Lebanese cities are: Tyr, Sidon, Byblos & Arwad(Eze27: 8-9).The Christ manifested forth his gloryAs Jesus started choosing his 12 disciples, he went by an invitationwith his mother & disciples to a wedding in Cana. There, heperformed his first miracle when he changed water into wine &there he revealed his glory and since that time his disciples believedin him & clung to him.The Christian scholars confirmed that the Galilee in which the 1stmiracle has happened by Jesus is located in the south of Lebanonnot in Kafarkanna beside Nazareth as some people claim, alsorather the forefathers scholars in the first & second century A.D.that was spotted in phoenix. The Lord Jesus declared that he is theawaited messiah in Lebanon and proved what it was confirmed byJohn the Baptist that he is the messiah and since that time hisdisciples believed in him through his 1st miracle and followed himwith utter confidence & hope.(John2: 11)"This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana ofGalilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believedon him". This miracle is the first sign that has been done by Jesusin Cana in the Galilee, revealed his glory therefore his disciplesbelieved in him.
  • 4. Responsibility of LebanonThe holy inspiration resembles Christ to Lebanon, he says about himin (Song of Songs5:15) "his countenance is as Lebanon, excellentas the cedar". It put in us a big responsibility and it explains the circumstancesthat this special country is facing, that experiences the blessingsevery time it humbles itself & seeks the face of the Lord (Isa29:17-19), … (Isa2: 12- 15: 10-23,34)(Zek11: 1)and experiencestragedies every time it feels the pride (Isa35: 2- 60: 13).Due to this long experience that Lebanon has went through, wedidnt want to stand watching, crossing our arms but the zeal of Godwas stirred in our hearts, therefore we willed together some of theLebanese brothers to have a motto campaign "Lebanon for Christ",in order to achieve the salvational & perfect plan of God to hispeople to all the nations.The vision of this campaign is to carry out the desire of Jesus heartfrom the beginning. He said:( song4: 8)" Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me fromLebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shiner andHarmon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards".Isa29: 17" Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall beturned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed asa forest?". John10: 9" I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall besaved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. john10: 10" The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, andto destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they mighthave it more abundantly.After the invasion of Lebanon over the years, domination by manynations that trampled over his people and shed his blood & ruinedits economy until the exile of all its youth to the whole inhabitants.Since the Christianity didnt testify about Christ, preach his gospel,and be faithful to its Lord, so it opened its gates to all the Muslims,and its land became fertile for the increase of the religions & thedifferent sects that work against the salvational message of Christ.We have made sure of the official statistics concerning the numberof the Christian & Muslim in Lebanon: muslim59.7% (Shiite,Sunnite, Druses, Ishmaelite, Alawian…).Christianity: 39% (Maronite, Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical…).And a varieties of pagans, cults & heresies & the far east religion1,3%.
  • 5. So this official statistics confirms that the number of Muslims is 1,5times more than the genuine & so-called Christians together.So this is dangerous, so we have to move & work by the command ofthe sovereign Lord, that is to evangelize in his name & to preach thegospel among all.After the increase of the different parties & Islamic groups & theextremist fundamentalist, their first & last goal is to transformLebanon into an Islamic government that submit to the law of"Mohammad Bin Abdullah" prophet of the Islam, inevitably thiscountry will be under the control of the Muslims politically,religiously & socially.The Lord was shouting with his loudest voice to the Lebanese peoplewhom underwent the yoke of the misleading shepherds & governorswho work for their goal achievements & their personal interests.Isa2: 22"Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: forwherein is he to be accounted of?" Jer17: 5 "I will get me unto the great men, and will speak untothem; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgmentof their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burstthe bonds".And this is what happened exactly when most of the Lebanese haveput their hope & built their illus ional peace on mankind & throughthat there were the mean of rescue & the salvation to them.Thus, the divisions & parties have increased although thecommandment in the holy bible says: Rom2: 8 "But unto them that are contentious, and do not obeythe truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath". Jas3: 16 " For where envying and strife is, there is confusionand every evil work"2Cor12: 20 ". For I fear, lest when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults: "Jos 3: 14 " But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. " And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to passover Jordan, and the priests bearing the Ark of the Covenant before thepeople;So the man reaps whatever he sows. He summoned the wrath of Godon him & the prophecies about the war of Lebanon since hundred ofyears till now has come to pass.
  • 6. Isa34: 16 "Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: noone of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth ithath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them".The holy inspiration mentioned about the war in the Old Testamentdeclaring that Lebanon & its towering cedars will topple & hispeople will be cut off, shall be humiliated, wander away &captivated.1st: the prophecies about the Lebanese war: Jer 22:20 Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan: and cry from Abarim; for all thy lovers are destroyed.Jer 22:21 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.Jer 22:22 The wind shall feed all thy shepherds, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.Jer 22:23 O inhabitant of Lebanon, that makest thy nest in thecedars, how greatly to be pitied shalt thou be when pangs comeupon thee, the pain as of a woman in travail!Nah 1:4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.2Ki 19:23 By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the innermost parts of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into his farthest lodging place, the forest of his fruitful field.Psa 29:5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.Zec 11:1 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.
  • 7. Zec 11:2 Howl, O fir tree, for the cedar is fallen, because the goodly ones are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan, for the strong forest is come down.Zec 11:4 Thus said the LORD my God: Feed the flock of slaughter;Zec 11:5 whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty; and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD, for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.Isa 33:9 The land mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and withereth away: Sharon is like a desert; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their leaves.Eze 17:3 and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD: A great eagle with great wings and long pinions, full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto Lebanon, and took the top of the cedar:Eze 17:4 he cropped off the topmost of the young twigs thereof, and carried it into a land of traffic; he set it in a city of merchants.Eze 31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.Eze 31:4 The waters nourished him, the deep made him to grow: her rivers ran round about her plantation; and she sent out her channels unto all the trees of the field.Eze 31:5 Therefore his stature was exalted above all the trees of the field: and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long by reason of many waters, when he shot them forth.Eze 31:6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.Eze 31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by many waters.Eze 31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the plane trees were not as his branches; nor was any tree in the garden of God like unto him in his beauty.Eze 31:9 I made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.
  • 8. Eze 31:10 Therefore thus said the Lord GOD: Because thou art exalted in stature, and he hath set his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;Eze 31:11 I will even deliver him into the hand of the mighty one of the nations; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness.Eze 31:12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the watercourses of the land; and all the peoples of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.Isa 10:33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the boughs with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the lofty shall be brought low.Isa 10:34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one. Eze 27:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,Eze 27:2 And thou, son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyre;Eze 27:3 and say unto Tyre, O thou that dwellest at the entry of the sea, which art the merchant of the peoples unto many isles, thus saith the Lord GOD: Thou, O Tyre, hast said, I am perfect in beauty.Eze 27:4 Thy borders are in the heart of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty.Eze 27:5 They have made all thy planks of fir trees from Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make a mast for thee.Eze 27:6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; they have made thy benches of ivory inlaid in boxwood, from the isles of Kittim.Eze 27:7 Of fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was thy sail, that it might be to thee for an ensign; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was thine awning.Eze 27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy rowers: thy wise men, O Tyre, were in thee, they were thy pilots.Eze 27:9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee thy calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee to occupy thy merchandise.Eze 27:10 Persia and Lud and Put were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they set forth thy comeliness.Eze 27:11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadim were in thy towers:
  • 9. they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they have perfected thy beauty.Eze 27:12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded for thy wares.Eze 27:13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy traffickers: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass for thy merchandise.Eze 27:14 They of the house of Togarmah traded for thy wares with horses and war–horses and mules.Eze 27:15 The men of Dedan were thy traffickers: many isles were the mart of thine hand: they brought thee in exchange horns of ivory and ebony.Eze 27:16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of thy handyworks: they traded for thy wares with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and rubies.Eze 27:17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy traffickers: they traded for thy merchandise wheat of Minnith, and pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm:Eze 27:18 Damascus was thy merchant for the multitude of thy handyworks, by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches; with the wine of Helbon, and white wool.Eze 27:19 Vedan and Javan traded with yarn for thy wares: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were among thy merchandise.Eze 27:20 Dedan was thy trafficker in precious cloths for riding.Eze 27:21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they were the merchants of thy hand; in lambs, and rams, and goats, in these were they thy merchants.Eze 27:22 The traffickers of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy traffickers: they traded for thy wares with chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.Eze 27:23 Haran and Canneh and Eden, the traffickers of Sheba, Asshur and Chilmad were they traffickers.Eze 27:24 These were thy traffickers in choice wares, in wrappings of blue and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.Eze 27:25 The ships of Tarshish were thy caravans for thy merchandise: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the heart of the seas.
  • 10. Eze 27:26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the heart of the seas.Eze 27:27 Thy riches, and thy wares, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, with all thy company which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the heart of the seas in the day of thy ruin.Eze 27:28 At the sound of the cry of thy pilots the suburbs shall shake.Eze 27:29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land,Eze 27:30 and shall cause their voice to be heard over thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:Eze 27:31 and they shall make themselves bald for thee, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee in bitterness of soul with bitter mourning.Eze 27:32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying, Who is there like Tyre, like her that is brought to silence in the midst of the sea?Eze 27:33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many peoples; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.Eze 27:34 In the time that thou wast broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, thy merchandise and all thy company did fall in the midst of thee.Eze 27:35 All the inhabitants of the isles are astonished at thee, and their kings are horribly afraid, they are troubled in their countenance.Eze 27:36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at thee; thou art become a terror, and thou shalt never be any more.And as the prophecies of the old testament were completed in anastonishing and clear way, concerning the civil war in Lebanon,captivity, about the devastation of the cedars of Lebanon, its people,its nationalism, about the human slaughter, and the blood shedamong the brethrens, hence it happened in full details. So thisassures the verity of the prophecies and its fulfillment sooner orlater. Therefore, the prophecies about the war has took place, butwe wait patiently for the fulfillment of the salvation to Lebanese
  • 11. people, return from their exile, and the scattering in order to live inthe paradise of God that he has implanted by his pure hands.2nd: the prophecies about the salvation of Lebanon and thesafety to its people.The obvious call of the Lord is his invitation to Lebanon & all theLebanese to be his bride, he calls her and says to her "Come to mefrom Lebanon", he has compassion on her & stretches his hand toher & he is still waiting for her that she may come to him hastily asa revered heavenly bride.But he promised also that if she puts her hands into his & if shebecomes his fiancée then the Lord shall turn Lebanon into anearthly paradise in a moment as every Lebanese dreamt hundred ofyears ago.So Lebanon can not be transformed into an earthly paradise unlessit turns to the Lebanese groom the Lord Jesus Christ with faith,unlimited love, and confidence in his miraculous salvation.Our vision is only for Lebanon to become a paradise for Christ, sohe wants to step on the land of Lebanon by his pure feet, he shallreign over it and built his throne in it.Isa 60: 13" The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the firtree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place ofmy sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious".The crusade can not be evangelized by the mean denominationalsect, but rather only through Christ the groom & the savior whowants to engage Lebanon, he is jealous over it more than all of us &he guaranteed his salvation to it because he is capable ofeverything: Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; Neither the son of man, that he should repent: Hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?Son 4:8 Come with me from Lebanon, my bride, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Senir and Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards.The perspective of the writer of song of songs in the holy bible wasto write from the summit of Mount Harmon where the highest & theholy place is & where the groom king can finally see his belovedbride in his presence prepared, perfect, flawless or unblemished thatshe may celebrate their wedding day.
  • 12. The king calls his beloved bride to keep on moving higher fromglory to glory, from the head of "Amana" to the head of "Shiner" tothe head of "Harmon". After reaching the highest pick among the 3picks of Mount "Harmon", the voice of the groom continues saying:"Hasten with me, O my distant lover".The definition of this private call shows as if the beloved one of themost highest is busy in climbing the chain of its mountains, before itis caught up spiritually that she may enjoy & rejoice in the course ofthe heavenly victory with its master.So finally this victory will collect them together to enjoy theeverlasting heavenly wedding.Isa 29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be counted for a forest?So what happens if Lebanon turns into the heavenly paradise in ashort while? The scripture declares about the fruit of thistransformation thus he says according to his honest promiseIsa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.Isa 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.Isa 29:20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner ceaseth, and all they that watch for iniquity are cut off:Isa 29:21 that make a man an offender in a cause, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just with a thing of nought.The depression & the despair in Lebanon, the political conflict &the economical crisis, hatred, grudges in the hearts, the spiritualblindness for the knowledge of the Christ the groom, the settlementof the injustice between the Lebanese, the divisions of the Lebanesehouse into parties, sects and parental devouring each other to thepoint of annihilation. But the Lord has a wonderful plan that he willturn Lebanon into a paradise because deaf will hear the words ofthe scroll, by hearing the faith comes and by faith the perfectsalvation comes, and afterwards the eyes of the spiritual and the
  • 13. biological eyes will also see in order to see the groom in the midst ofLebanon roaming, healing, delivering and saving the Lebanese byhis miraculous salvationIsa 35:1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.Isa 35:2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon: they shall see the glory of the LORD, the excellency of our God.Isa 35:3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompence of God; he will come and save you.Isa 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.Isa 35:6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.Isa 35:7 And the glowing sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water: in the habitation of jackals, where they lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.Isa 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, yea fools, shall not err therein.Isa 35:9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up thereon, they shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:Isa 35:10 and the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.The vision is not only exclusive in Lebanon but its a message andthe lamp stands to the entire Arabic orient. The light of Christ shallshine from it reaching out to all the inhabitants.So when God turns it into his paradise, when his peace enters theheart of his heart and afterwards the light of the groom will shineupon all the nations all people.Our vision will bring the desire of Christ by which he wants to getengaged to Lebanon & turn it into his paradise & his embassy
  • 14. 2Co 5:20 We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beseech you on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God.1Ti 2:4 who willeth that all men should be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.Isa 62:5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.Therefore, the groom Lord rejoices in his bride Lebanon with aninexpressible joy, he is the Lord of this paradise & her fiancée fromthe beginning.He wants to restore all the captives & all the scattered Lebanese abroad because she is his brideJer 33:11 the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that say, Give thanks to the LORD of hosts, for the LORD is good, for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that bring sacrifices of thanksgiving into the house of the LORD. For I will cause the captivity of the land to return as at the first, saith the LORD.This is his promise, he is faithful and honest forever more.The lord calls us (the Lebanese) his bride to fulfill this visionJoe 2:16 gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.The bride of Lebanon will not come out from its chamber & wake upuntil it hears the voice of the groom through our campaign forLebanon for Christ . Why? Because he is commanding us to gatherthe people and pray with him & preach the salvational gospel to beconsecrated until she becomes ready to receive the groom, so hegets out from his secret place suddenly to encounter his ready &pure bride by his precious blood and that has been washed by theblood of the lambIsa 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of
  • 15. righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with a garland, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.The groom will not come out of his secret place only through ourinvitation to the people to get gathered, to be one body & one bridefor Christ the groom.Our vision is to see Lebanon getting out of its slumber & from itshibernation & to wake up quickly before it is too lateMat 25:6 But at midnight there is a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.We want Lebanon to be like the 5 wise virgins that the Lord Jesushas talked about that is to be ready & prepared & to wait patientlythe advent of the groom. When they heard his voice they came out tomeet him…they entered with him & the doors were closed instantly.He is calling her "hasten to me O my bride from Lebanon".Our vision is to win Lebanon for the Lord Jesus, so all the means &the capabilities are available to us because he has anointed us &sent us to evangelize in his name & preach the gospel to all thenations & religions without fear or hesitation.Isa 29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be counted for a forest? Isa 32:15 until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.Isa 32:16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness shall abide in the fruitful field.Isa 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and confidence for ever.Isa 32:18 And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. Isa 35:2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon: they shall see the glory of the LORD, the excellency of our God.Isa 35:9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up thereon, they shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk thereIsa 35:10 and the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
  • 16. Our main goal is to win Lebanon for Christ & not for anybodyelse no matter how important or great he is, because we onlyacknowledge the dominion of the Lord Jesus Christ himself.Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. The longing of our heart is the salvation of the souls & seeingpeople get baptized by the holy spirit & living a victorious life.We want people to receive the healing in all aspects of life:spiritually, mentally, psychologically, physically, financially &socially.
