Your Battle Plan for Spiritual Victory

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

 

Years ago, I wrote a book called Know Your Real Enemy. Revised and updated for today’s battlefield, it has been republished as Conquer: Your Battle Plan for Spiritual Victory. I want to reiterate its message because I believe it is so pertinent for our times as more and more churches are departing from Biblical authority, leaving the door open to all kinds of false gods and gospels.

If we could peer into Satan’s playbook, I believe we’d find that our enemy has a battle plan targeting each of us by name. I believe the best way we can defend ourselves and live in victory is to fill our minds and our homes with God’s Truth.

We recently heard from a Christian father in Canada who had struggled with alcoholism. After years of sobriety, he was invited to a party at a bar. He convinced himself he could have “just one beer” without losing his sobriety. As he drove to the bar, he listened to our Leading The Way broadcast and heard about the moral compromise of Lot in the book of Genesis. The Truth of God’s Word stopped this man and turned him back home to his family.

“I was experiencing a lot of joy when I drove home,” he told us. “It was a victory—a victory over sin, relying on Christ. That message was pointed exactly where I needed it to be. It couldn’t have been any more perfect.”

Experiencing spiritual victory is simply a matter of understanding and applying the Word of God. This is why Leading The Way continues to proclaim Christ 4,300 times a week to more than 190 countries. Through these efforts, a Christian father was reminded of the danger of spiritual compromise—all in God’s perfect timing.

This month, I would like to offer you a copy of my new book, Conquer, for your gift of any amount to the ministry of Leading The Way. Your support allows Leading The Way to proclaim God’s Truth at critical moments in the lives of listeners, readers, and viewers all over the world. Through your giving, you will not only receive teaching to equip you in your spiritual walk—you will also help us equip millions of listeners and viewers around the world with Biblical Truth.

I hope you’ll partner with us!

In Christ,

Jesus, Jihad and Peace: Answered Prayers

 

 

Since its release, Dr. Michael Youssef’s new book, Jesus, Jihad and Peace, has sold more than 15,000 copies – making it his fastest selling book to date. Over the last month, many of you have shared your stories with Leading The Way - testimonies of how God is using this timely book to bring Biblical clarity to world events, to provide opportunities to share the Gospel, and to ignite your prayers for the Middle East as well as our own nation.

From the pastor distributing hundreds of copies to his congregation, to the couple who has used the book to share the Gospel with their Iranian friend - these stories are answered prayers, and we are so grateful for all those who are continuing to spread the word about Jesus, Jihad and Peace.

Shortly after the release of the book, Dr. Youssef addressed an audience of Christian media professionals with a powerful message on the topic of Islam and how we are called to respond to the rising tide of Islamic fundamentalism. We hope you’ll watch it and be encouraged in your partnership with Leading The Way and empowered to share God’s Truth with those around you.

Thank you for your support of Leading The Way as we continue to passionately proclaim uncompromising Truth 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at this crucial time in history.

Jesus Is the Answer

It seems that every week, we hear another heartbreaking story of young people who are unexpectedly leaving everything behind to join ISIS. Through edgy videos and a strategic social media presence, ISIS' goals are very clear: they are intentionally targeting young people.

In praying and planning for 2015, one of Leading The Way's goals for the new year was to create  more content for children and teens through THE KINGDOM SAT, the ministry's satellite channel broadcasting the Gospel deep into the Muslim world. As Islamic extremists continue to target young audiences, it is imperative that we also be intentional about sharing the hope of Christ with the same people extremists are attempting to radicalize and manipulate.

"Jesus Is the Answer" is one example of the content THE KINGDOM SAT is airing. The lyrics of this powerful Tunisian song, some of which you can read below, were intended by the songwriter to serve a dual purpose:

  1. To reach the lost who may be going through a difficult time.
  2. To encourage Christians, specifically former Muslims who have converted to Christianity and are experiencing persecution, alienation, or loneliness because of their faith.

While the message itself is impactful for listeners of any age, the song style will resonate most with young audiences.

Please pray with us that God will use this video to minister to young audiences who are in desperate need of the hope that only Christ can bring.

Jesus is the answer
Jesus is the hope
 
You, who want to commit suicide
Feel that your spirit is below zero
You wish to get into a tomb (to die)
Stop!
He is the Way, The Truth and the Life
He was crucified and died for you
He was raised from the dead to give you life
You, who are poor in spirit, desperate and sad
You, who are dismayed and have no hope
Jesus is extending His hands to you
 
You, who found all doors locked before you
Where you go, you get insulted and humiliated
You look alive while you are dead
You look covered up but in fact you are naked
You feel that you are not a human being any more
You, who are lost and burdened
You, who get all kinds of blame
You, who feel subjugated and oppressed
The Lord tells you, “Stand up now! Stand up now!”
 
You maybe lived your life in hiding
Satan may deceive you and say,
“Too late. With me you will live. Without me you find death.”
My Lord tells you, “I am here. I exist”

Truth in the Age of Chrislam

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

 

The attack against Canadian parliament. The radical hostage situation in Australia. The Charlie Hebdo shooting in France. The failed plot to attack the U.S. Capitol.

As radical Islamic attacks strike closer and closer to home, our political and religious leaders continue to be deceived about the true nature of Islam. A number of Christian churches are even trying to merge Christianity and Islam into something called “Chrislam.” They have placed the Qur’an in pew racks beside the Bible, and they are preaching the words of Muhammad and Jesus side-by-side.

A delusion is sweeping through many evangelical churches. A recent study revealed that one-fourth of self-described born-again Christians believe all people will eventually be saved, even without faith in Christ. Forty percent said they believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. This age-old deception comes straight from the great deceiver - Satan himself.

But Muslims are not the enemy, and neither is Islam. Our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of darkness - and the only way to dispel that darkness is to shine the light of Christ. That’s why, day and night through TV, radio, and the Internet, Leading The Way is proclaiming the uncompromised Truth of Jesus here at home and in the Arab world.

I continually hear stories of Muslims finding Christ through the broadcasts on our 24/7 satellite channel THE KINGDOM SAT. One Egyptian woman contacted our follow-up team. Her husband had beaten her for reading the Bible, yet she said, “I am joyful and comforted in the Lord.” At great risk, she boldly shares Christ with friends and family members.

While many are risking their very lives for the cause of Christ, we in the West cannot afford to be politically correct with the Gospel. This month, would you prayerfully consider joining us in sharing that Gospel?

If you haven’t already, please request a copy of my new book, Jesus, Jihad and Peace, along with your gift of any amount this month.* As you read it, I trust you’ll be emboldened in your witness and encouraged in your prayers and partnership with Leading The Way.

As Bible-believing Christians, our challenge is to proclaim the Gospel lovingly and fearlessly. I hope you will join us as we sound the alarm of Truth in a spiritually sleeping world.

Gratefully in Christ,

Responding to Radical Islam

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

 

When I place the headlines of global news alongside of God's Word, I see startling parallels. Within the last 50 years, many have begun to ask, "What is the Biblical significance of today's turbulent events in the Middle East? Is radical Islam a true threat to the Western world?" This week's attacks on a French satirical newspaper office at the hands of three men—all in the name of Allah—have only served to reinforce these questions.

Many leaders in the West display a frightening ignorance about Islam, falling for the propaganda that Islam is a "religion of peace" or that Allah and Yahweh are one and the same. As a ministry, I believe God has called Leading The Way to unmask these myths, to preach Christ and Christ alone, and to shed light on today's events with clear, concise, Biblical answers.

I was raised as an Egyptian Christian in a Muslim culture. I have seen firsthand how Muslims struggle to earn Allah's mercy, yet they have no promise of salvation, no peace, no assurance that they have done enough. My heart breaks for Muslims living under the curse of spiritual uncertainty and fear.

Yet today, many Muslim hearts are open to the Gospel as never before. We recently heard from a young former Muslim named Abd, who was raised to fear Allah as a harsh judge. One day, Abd found our Christian programs on THE KINGDOM SAT, our 24/7 satellite TV channel. He was amazed that all of his spiritual questions were answered on these programs. Every show had a common theme: the forgiving love of Jesus. Abd prayed and received Jesus as Lord and Savior, and he now prays daily for this ministry.

Abd's testimony is one of the many stories we hear of Muslims coming to Christ through the ministry of Leading The Way. We are uniquely positioned to reach the Muslim world around the clock, both over the airwaves and on the ground. In addition to broadcasting the Gospel there, our follow-up teams are staffed by committed believers with Muslim backgrounds who know how to relate to Muslim people.

I believe the spreading wildfire of Islamic ideology is one of the greatest challenges of our time. That's why I wrote my most recent book, Jesus, Jihad and Peace—to confront the core beliefs and motivations of Islam and to share how God has called Christians to respond.

This month, I want to offer you a copy of Jesus, Jihad, and Peace for your gift of any amount to Leading The Way*. The book does not release until February 17, but we want to make this special pre-order offer available to you this month. Your generous gift to Leading The Way will help us proclaim uncompromising Biblical Truth here in the Western world and reach many more Muslims around the world like Abd with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Now is the time for all believers to declare to a warring world that Jesus is the only way to peace. I hope you will join me in sharing this message with the world.

In Christ,
