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)
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,


Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

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,


Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

January Notes from Our Inbox

Each month, we hear joyful reports of how the Lordhas moved in the lives of our listeners, viewers, and readers through the Gospel teaching of Leading The Way. As you read their stories, we hope these testimonies will guide you in your prayers for Leading The Way and fill you with faith in God’s mighty power.


“I have received the Lord as my savior and I am experiencing a joy that I never had before. I need help in learning how to practice prayers. All the people around me are Muslims. I went to the church in my city but I could not understand the language. Please help me know more.”


“Please pray for me so that Jesus will forgive all my sins. I confess that I have done a lot of things that displeased His heart. Please pray that I will return to His ways, because I am easily tempted. May God give me strength and forgive my sins. Amen.”


“For months, I have been watching the rich sermons that opened my mind more and deepened my understanding of the Word of God. Wonderful! May our God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ bless all who work in this blessed ministry that truly leads and feeds the sheep of the Lord.”


“I’m a young Christian and I’m amazed by Dr. Youssef’s teachings. I have heard the program on the radio and now I’m listening on the Navigator I got as a gift from the radio station. I’m so thankful to God for all the lessons I’m learning. Everything is so new to me. Thank you for your ministry.”

United States:

“I just watched Leading The Way as Dr. Youssef started a new series called To Know Jesus Is to Love Him. I’m deaf so I use closed captioning and I’m so grateful for that. As Dr. Youssef presented the beginning of this series, it just totally consumed me! It brought me to tears. It’s beautiful and I can’t wait until next Sunday to continue this series. Even though I can’t hear, I see and feel the deep passion Dr. Youssef has as he delivers these powerful messages. I look forward to Sunday evenings to watch and learn as I continue on my spiritual journey. Thank you for helping me along the way!”


From one of our TV partners in Pakistan: “One of our viewers told us that he was so fed up with his life and wanted to commit suicide because all sorts of evil thoughts and plans occupied his brain. But when he listened to Dr. Michael’s message, his life changed and he is now leading a happy life. Praise the Lord.” 

Share the Gift of the Gospel This Christmas

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the region where our Savior was born—the Middle East—has exploded in violence. In 2014, the Islamic State (ISIS) shocked the world, conquering much of Iraq and Syria while committing horrifying atrocities. In Israel, where angels once proclaimed “peace on earth, good will toward men,” the peace is shattered by ongoing conflict.

Yet the Good News is going out across this troubled region. We recently heard from Muhammad, who was flipping through the channels on his satellite TV when our KINGDOM SAT channel caught his eye. Day after day, he watched Christian programs in Arabic. Soon he wanted his wife and children to know Jesus, so he invited them to watch with him, and they all received Christ.

Muhammad contacted our follow-up team, who met with him and helped him find a church where his family could be baptized. Despite the risks of witnessing in a Muslim culture, Muhammad is so passionate about His faith in Jesus that he cannot stop sharing the Good News with everyone he knows. He found Christ thanks to your support of Leading The Way.

There is good news coming out of the Middle East because the Good News is going into the Middle East. The Gospel is the only force powerful enough to oppose Islamic expansionism. I love the Muslim people, and I want them to know the fullness of life that comes from a personal relationship with Christ. That’s why, in addition to broadcasting to more than 190 countries, we are specifically saturating the Middle East, North Africa, and Arabic-speaking populations in America with the Good News.

This month, generous ministry partners have committed $500,000 to Leading The Way—and they are challenging you to match their gifts in our December Gift Challenge. There’s no greater gift you can give at Christmastime than the Gospel—and that’s why I’m excited to share this special giving opportunity with you. With your participation, their $500,000 can become $1 million for the advancement of God’s Kingdom into places like Iraq, Syria, and beyond.

With all the bad news we hear today, you’ve probably wondered, “Can one person make a difference?” Yet there’s never been another time in history when one person could reach so many for Christ. Your faithful support enables Leading The Way to reach thousands more like Muhammad in the world’s most critical hotspots.

God has done amazing things in 2014. I can’t wait to see what He will do in the year ahead as a result of your partnership!

Your fellow worker for Christ,


Michael Youssef, Ph.D.
