A ‘Holy Spirit Hunch’ Led Lebanese Pastor to Send Everyone Home Before the ExPolsion

Published

on

Pastor Said Deeb of Life Center Church in Beirut said the day of the massive explosion, a strange feeling came over him – a combination of anxiety, anger, and sadness that shook him to the core.  He said he prayed with his staff but didn’t get a break-through and couldn’t shake the feeling that something bad was going to happen. 

“I don’t know why, I was so rude, I told everyone, ‘Go home, go home, just close the Center’,” Pastor Deeb explained. “But people said, ‘How come? We came a long way, we have commitments, we have meetings.’ I said I don’t know why but please go home and come back on Sunday and it was a Tuesday afternoon,” he said.
 
So Pastor Deeb sent his entire staff of 34 people home and canceled all children’s Bible classes after sensing something terrible was about to happen. 

“It was as if the Holy Spirit is saying, Go! Go! Go! Go! So I was saying everybody go home, turn off the computers, forcing them to leave, I was forcing them and they said, ‘We are cooking, cooking food for the refugees and for the poor,’ and I said, ‘Today cancel everything, put it in the fridge’.”

“They were thinking I lost my mind but they didn’t know and I didn’t know it was the Holy Spirit’s prompting.”

Life Center Church Beirut sits only about a mile from the explosion epicenter. He says the blast blew out windows and doors to the 4,000-square-meter facility and would have surely taken lives if anyone had been there. More than 200 people lost their lives in that explosion, thousands were injured, and tens of thousands are now without homes. But Pastor Deeb says he is seeing the Church come together more now than ever before on behalf of Beirut. 

“The need all around us is huge, so people were coming from all over Lebanon to help clean the area where we are and we started sending them food and giving away drinks. And I thank God for the Body of Christ, people keep calling me from all over the world asking how they can help. It’s the first time in my life I feel like the International Church is united together to help Lebanon and to help Beirut,” Deeb said.

Pastor Kumuyi’s reaction to his birthday celebration by the youths

As the church is moving forward, we need ideas from the youth to spread the gospel and innovate evangelism.

If you have innovative ideas, don’t be too shy to share with the church.

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

  • Roman 12:2 KJV

“The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.”

What Does Jesus Want for Christmas?

everyone is preparing for Christmas, you need to see the crowd at Alaba intl Market yesterday….. Someone told me that he visited Oshodi central market on Christmas Eve and almost lost is shadow in the crowd. Hahaha 😴

Preparation everywhere… One thing that I get to notice is that we prepare more for the funFair part, we spent more time planning and thinking of what to eat, drink and wear. Which I 100% agree that is all part of the celebration of Christmas.

But have you ever asked yourself this question…

What Does Jesus Want for Christmas?
what gift those he desire from us? What has always been is dearest desire and expectation from us.
There is really only one thing that Jesus wants for Christmas. Jesus wants you.
Of course He wants other people too, but you cannot give other people to Jesus. You can only give yourself.

You can exhort and challenge others to give themselves to Christ, but that begins by giving yourself fully to Christ. Prepare to receive him, Create a room for him in your heart.

You are aware of what happened 2000 years ago according to the Gospel of Luke 2:6-7
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

So back then there was no room available for him….

What about now he wants you, One of the greatest gifts you can give Jesus this season is the gift of you. Jesus wants a relationship with you.

Your distance brother
©️ Apt Clement OC Merciful

Merry Christmas to you all
