A Refuge in Times of Trouble

The word refuge is a word that gives us the sense of security, when we are going through danger of any kind. It is a place of comfort and safety. The most secure place available as our refuge is in the secret place of the Most High- under the shadow of His wings. One might think, How do I get there? Or Where is that place, invisible it is to me. To all of us, as a matter of fact, this place, my friend is found in your faith, for faith elevates us to God’s presence no matter the circumstances we face. It is a shield of protection against any weapon coming our way, even today’s weapon, the covid-19, followed by its vaccine. Both humanly created for a purpose of destruction of the human race. The spirit of fear has been hovering its stings around the world since then. Our refuge is not found in the vaccine, but in God, Who has never left us forsaken. He is just a call away. He said, He shall call Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble (Ps. 91:15). Calling on His name brings salvation to all who calls on Him. What does the Lord promise when we make Him our refuge?  There shall no evil come near your tent, for He will give His angels charge over you to accompany and defend and protect you in all your ways; they shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample under foot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him, I will set him on high because he knows and understands my name; he shall call upon Me and I will answer him, I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver and honor him; with long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation (Ps. 91:9-16).

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
