Faith Becomes Sight!

 Migdal Arbel

 FIRST SIGHT!

Astonished! Pleasantly shocked! Downright flabbergasted! I cannot even begin to describe my emotions as we drove up and saw the BIG, HIGH buildings that are growing to be the Migdal Arbel Prayer and Study Center!

 

The construction (two months ahead of schedule and under budget) has so progressed since we were here December 11. Exactly six months. Even Guy was surprised. It is evident the hand of God is on the project.

We were told that construction sites are often visited with unexpected inspections. The afternoon before, an inspector showed up. He asked, “How many men do you have working today?” They answered, “Eight.” He marveled. “That’s eight more than any of the sites I went to this morning.” The war has stopped many projects. But not this one.

 

Lynne Hammond, who has been with me from the beginning, wept profusely! It was her first time to see it since building began.

 

FAITH BECOMES SIGHT!

When I say “faith,” the Lord made me to know something as I prayed in my room before we went to the site. Though He commended my faith, He made me to know that my own faith would never be enough for this assignment. He let me know that He had granted me the “Gift of Faith,” one of the nine gifts of the Spirit. The measure of faith given to each of us is enough to get us born again. Then, if fed with the Word and exercised in the Spirit, great things can be accomplished through it. But for this, and for me, it took “The Gift of Faith.” Brother Hagin described it as “special faith.” It was with that Gift, dropped down in me, that I was able to hold on all these years.

He said to me in my room on the Sea of Galilee, “Many miracles were done around these shores. Migdal Arbel will be one more.” And then came a long and wonderfully encouraging word I will share at Wednesday Prayer when I get home.

 

FROM A NAPKIN TO AMAZING REALITY!

 Years ago, the Lord gave me the plan for Migdal Arbel as I prayed in my Prayer Chair. I drew it in simple squares in a little yellow journal. Then, years ago, as we sat in Israel, I attempted to draw it for Rani Levy on a napkin.

I was remembering that at the site, when Heather Bergstrom exclaimed, “I was there! I think I have photos on my phone.” She did. And I am posting them here. I am not an architect or an artist—stick figures are the best I can do when attempting to illustrate people. So you can see how shocked I was to see these buildings with their beautiful views solidifying what I attempted to portray on a napkin!

 

77 Rooms!

 A few months back, Nir Kimchi called. A moment of decision had arisen. Migdal Arbel can serve as a place for others besides us, but to do so and to pay for itself, we needed to increase the number of rooms. He could do it simply by going up, adding floors. He proposed the number to be 66. I said, “We can’t have that!” And so I prayed. The Lord gave the go-ahead. So I chose 70 as a good number. Nir came back and said it worked out to  make it 77 rooms.

Some of you may remember one of the first offerings we received for the project at an Autumn Assembly in Branson. The Lord spoke to me specifically to tell the people to participate in increments of seven. Seven dollars. Seventy dollars. Seventy-seven dollars! Seven hundred dollars! Etc. That offering was especially blessed, bringing blessings to the project and, I believe, blessings to the givers.

I was reminded of that offering when I immediately said to Nir, “Yes! That’s right!” Nir and the architect explained to us in the construction office just how the additions would be made.

 

ON THE WINDY SEA!!!

 We got a little idea of how the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) can be a little rough, though it is not the time of storms. Yet, as we read the Scripture of the Lord’s calming the sea, our experience with the choppy waters certainly gave us a greater appreciation of what Jesus did that day so long ago.

    Overjoyed, Billye, I can understand your astonishment seeing these buildings before your eyes. I have laughed in the Spirit with laughter! Lynn, I can imagine, sweet lady of prayer, how the joy rolled out in tears. What you ladies accomplished will stand in history, in this age and the one to come!
    This prayer call morning, so enjoyed hearing some of the tour moments you shared. The man from Singapore baptized in the Jordan at the exact moment, 9:00 am when sirens sounded, Baptized under fire!!! For sure, the Osage pastor who was performing the baptisms. Oh, and the eagles flying right over you. Can’t wait until we can hear more stories when you return.
    This was another war-time ministry tour not to be forgotten.

  9. Kathy I Fain on June 13, 2024 at 11:37 am

    Miss Billye it’s going to be beautiful! I’m so excited for you and the vision God gave you. Can hardly wait to go back and see it growing and getting ready to bloom, since 2015 when our group did a dedication to that sight, with the Pearson’s and your family. I will never forget! I was thinking too, that since many other projects in israel have stopped, it’s probably allowed supplies to be readily available and not detained. God is SO amazing. Shalom Shalom Save and blessed travels home.

    • Kathy I Fain on June 13, 2024 at 11:38 am

      Safe (save) travels.

    Glory be to God! This is beautiful and so exciting! Thank you for sharing what the Lord told you about Him giving you the special gift of faith for this. How reassuring to know He provides even His own faith to accomplish His plans; that gives us all such rest and hope in our own lives as well. This is all so powerful and a demonstration of His grace, glory, and power. I simply cannot wait to behold this in person. I’ve been praying for you and this trip all along and with the WWPs as always. Blessings on the remainder of your trip and on Migdal Arbel!

    • Linda Fassett on June 13, 2024 at 3:19 pm

    Thanks for the update Dr. Billye! I was there this past week and was hoping our group would come in contact with yours. I will contine to pray and support this God ordained project and look forward to going back to see it. Blessings abound for you and team!

  17. Jan Ellis Suydam on June 13, 2024 at 12:17 pm

    Sister Billye, I love you so much and have followed you from the early 2000’s when you started being on Believers Voice of Victory with Sister Gloria Copeland.
    I listened to the 2 cd series Heavenly Jerusalem and Judgement of the Nations and they were so helpful in preparing me to go to Israel in 2004.
    I’m wondering if you will still receive my offering of $77.00 so I can be part of the Migdal Arbel project.
    Gods greatest blessings be upon you and this sanctified project.
    Shalom Shalom from Janette Ellis Suydam in North East Florida…Yulee, Florida to be specific
    Love in Jesus Service

    Bless the Lord! How exciting to see the building progress with such blessings, under budget and ahead of time! I’m thankful for the opportunity to be part of something so anointed of Elohim. May this be an encouragement to whoever lays eyes on this building. Seventy seven floors touched by the Lord because of one woman’s willingness to step out and obey, no matter what! Hallelujah!

    Wowzer !! So exciting to see the vision come to pass! I remember being on the prayer calls for years with the multiple delays and hurdles that were being reported. Perseverance and corporate agreement in prayer pushed it through. I still have my rocks that I collected from the sight in 2017. I look forward to being there again.
    Shalom Shalom, 🇮🇱

  35. Yany Lynne on June 13, 2024 at 6:47 pm

    A friend introduced me to this ministry. I heard of Dr. Brim through Victory Channel. I am very excited to know about this ministry and praying for everything to be completed soon. My husband and I love Israel and have visited 3 times. I would love to study with this ministry in Israel if God wills. Thanks for your ministry.

    Ms. Billye, thank you so much for the update! Our God is so faithful in the midst of violence. Every chance I get I sow into this project. I long for the day when it is available to pray and study at!
    With all my love and prayers and blessing,
    Shalom, shalom

    Dear Billye,
    The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

  38. Elayne Stewart on June 13, 2024 at 10:25 pm

    When I first began giving I marked it to Migdal Arbel not knowing what that really meant. $17.00 After reading this today I will change my gift to match the greater 7’s. Praise the Lord for your great faith Billye.
    It is a beautiful thing

  39. Terry Marie Parrott on June 14, 2024 at 1:33 am

    Sis Billye, what a thrilling sight!
    I was preparing for time with the Lord when your update came through, and I too, like Lynn burst into tears, as the love of Jesus washed over me. His Spirit was revealing the “covering” and “favor” He has placed over this property; the 77 rooms are not a coincidence, but ordained by the Lord. What rejoicing that cannot be put into words! The people of Israel have no idea what blessings will be poured out through this facility!!!
    There is an anointing that will flow out when the doors open, and those that work on this project will be blessed in a special way, too. I took communion, & had a beautiful time of prayer and worship; and there is such “peace” flowing all around.
    Love you, & Blessings as you continue to walk out His will! 🤗

    Migdal Migdal what a miracle more monies needed to get it built and furnished more quickly. HE WHO BLESSES ISRAEL I WILL BLESS We send our love Partners in Ireland

  41. Karen Culpepper Beaumont on June 14, 2024 at 8:43 am

    I feel so privileged to view this amazing miracle in these difficult times in Israel. Our God has certainly shown Himself true in the Migdal Arbel Prayer and Study Center project! All the years of standing with you for this, Miss Billye, has brought a wonderful reward. We continue to pray with you for its completion. Miss Lynne, your tears are a sign of God’s compassion for His people, and I bless you for allowing them to flow.

  42. Joan NewVine on June 14, 2024 at 9:35 am

    With God all things are possible!

  43. Esther Matos on June 14, 2024 at 11:13 am

    My eyes filled with tears the second time I viewed the video of Migdal Arbel; seeing the Lord’s faithfulness and the steadfast prayers of the Saints to push this vision through, in prayer and giving. I read each and every comment. It has so blessed and encouraged me. I came to know of this ministry through a message I heard in YouTube, it was on Signs Of The End Times, last year, 2023! This is how I came to be connected with Wednesday prayer calls and found out About Migdal Arbel. Thank you for these post and all up dates of Migdal Arbel.

  44. Jo Haberbush on June 14, 2024 at 5:36 pm

    Oh how my heart burns within me to see what God has prepared for the preservation of His people! I weep to see the manifest presence of God! As the smoke of glory and the pillar of fire, so Migdal Arbel is the manifest display of God to all!

  45. Joy Evans on June 14, 2024 at 9:23 pm

    Wonderful, just so lovely! The views are exceptional!
    Money cometh to Migdal in Jesus Name, for the complete furnishings within and without. Look forward to one day to visit! God is eternally GOOD !

  46. Karen Jacobs on June 15, 2024 at 8:16 pm

    PTL! SIS BILLYE! LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO FOR HIS MIGDAL ARBEL PRAYER AND STUDY CENTER! THE LORD IS FAITHFUL AND GAVE YOU THE GIFT OF FAITH TO PERSEVERE AND ENDURE ALL THESE YEARS TO ITS COMPLETION! IT IS SUCH A BLESSING TO SEE HOW FAR IT HAS CONE SINCE THE LAST TIME I WAS HONORED TO PRAY OVER IT IN JUNE OF 2022! LOVE AND BLESSINGS AND PRAYERS! KAREN JACOBS 🙏❤

  47. Effie Farr on June 16, 2024 at 8:13 pm

    Dr. Billye, I am in awe of the progress that is visible since I was there in December, 2023. THANK YOU for keeping us informed through your blogs! I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say to us during the Wednesday prayer call.

    To God Be the Glory, Great things He has done!!
    My heart rejoices with you as we see the progress being made. We have prayed for years about this project and are so glad
    that is is coming into being there by the Sea of Galilee. Jesus, too, rejoices over this with JOY. His heart is gladdened with the placement,
    the progress and the manifested presence of God on sight with all the workers. The Gift of Faith will help secure the needed finances until
    completion. 1000s are joining with prayer for BBM during this time. Praise God from whom all blessings flow….

  51. Laura on June 17, 2024 at 3:05 pm

    What thrills me most about the Migdal project is that it’s not just another church building for us Christians to meet and pray in. It is for Israel. I really got a sense that it’s a seed. Though I may never see it myself, I am happy to have been given the honor of contributing to this marvelous work.

  52. Candi on June 19, 2024 at 11:00 am

    Lord, Father is so amazing! Let God be the Glory!!! Amen

  54. Sharon Saltee on June 19, 2024 at 3:26 pm

    Thank you for sharing all these wonderful pictures and updates of what the Lord is doing at Migdal Arbel. Somewhere I have an early picture of Migdal Arbel when I was on a tour with Pastor David Pizzimenti just after you and Lynn miraculously purchased the property. We stopped there to pray because Israel had been in a 3 year drought. Pastor David said you had just purchased this property and it was to become a place of prayer. We prayed on that land until we felt the Holy Spirit release us. Our tour guide and our bus driver both thought we were all crazy. That night around midnight we were awakened by lightening and thunder. It rained all night. We went from crazy people from America to our tour guide and driver telling everyone they came in contact about the miracle God brought through prayer. I believe we were blessed to be His vessels in united prayer in one of the early miracles in prayer at Migdal Arbel. I know there will be countless more!

    I was not aware of the story of the offering you received at Autumn Assembly years ago asking for gifts with the number “7”. The Lord put on my heart to give monthly to Migdal and when I asked for a figure, He spoke $77.88. I thought the $77 was declaring it is complete. I now I know it was also for the 77 rooms. The 88 he spoke to me was for “new beginnings”. I believe it is a place the Body of Christ will come, be refreshed, draw closer to the Lord and leave with “new spiritual/physical beginnings”. In addition, and I believe so important, for the Jews that will find this place to be their Goshen in the not too distant future. I have great expectation this will be supernaturally completed very soon, way ahead of schedule and under budget!!!

  55. Sonika Badenhorst on June 22, 2024 at 12:04 am

    Dear Mrs Billye,
    I thought of you when I read Yahoshua 14 verse 12.
    I am so thankful for your ministry.
    Praise Jesus, Abba and Ruach HaKodesh.

  56. K Joseph on June 25, 2024 at 9:33 pm

    Hello I am having some difficulty understanding the gift of faith vs the faith we build up by the word vs the measure of faith we are given at our new birth. Could you recommend some materials to help me understand a bit better?
    TY

  57. Candi Thomas on June 26, 2024 at 9:38 am

    Sister Billye, you says you read the blog. I am on your prayer call on Wednesday both time. Lord, show me to not just read the the verses separately when given together but to also read them together example today call : 2 Corinthians 2:4 and 2 Peter 3:9, when examined together, offer insights into the heart of God towards His people, reflecting both His desire for their well-being and His patience towards humanity. Let’s explore these verses more closely to understand their messages.

    **2 Corinthians 2:4** states:
    “For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.”

    In this verse, Paul is expressing his deep care and concern for the Corinthian church. The context of this passage is Paul addressing various issues within the church, including challenges and misunderstandings that had caused tension between him and some of the Corinthian believers. Paul’s goal in addressing these issues so forthrightly was not to cause pain or grief but rather to demonstrate his profound love and commitment to their spiritual well-being. His words were written from a place of “affliction and anguish of heart,” underscoring the sincerity and depth of his concern for them. This verse highlights how godly correction and difficult conversations are often rooted in love, aiming for the growth and strengthening of the faith community.

    **2 Peter 3:9** says:
    “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

    This passage speaks to the character of God, particularly His patience and desire for all people to come to repentance. Peter is addressing concerns that some were having about the apparent delay in the Lord’s return. Peter reassures them that what might seem like a delay is actually a demonstration of God’s patience. God’s timing is governed by His mercy, giving people the opportunity to turn to Him. The verse reflects God’s heart, emphasizing that His desire is for no one to perish but for everyone to have the chance to repent and receive eternal life. This patience of God underscores the importance He places on individual choices and the value of each person coming to a saving knowledge of Him.

    When considered together, 2 Corinthians 2:4 and 2 Peter 3:9 reveal the depth of God’s love and His desire for reconciliation and restoration. Paul’s personal anguish over the Corinthian church and his efforts to guide them back to right living reflect a microcosm of God’s larger plan of salvation and His patience with humanity. Both verses showcase the balance between truth and love, correction and patience, ultimately aimed at bringing individuals to a closer relationship with God.

    He give us 2 Corinthians 2:4 twice but I believe cause of what he is saying give it with Rev 15:2 example 2 Corinthians 2:14 and Revelation 15:2 both speak to the themes of triumph and victory, albeit in different contexts. Let’s explore each verse individually.

    **2 Corinthians 2:14** says:
    “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”

    In this verse, Paul expresses gratitude to God for the triumphant victory believers have in Christ. It highlights the idea that through Christ, believers are led in a victory procession, spreading the knowledge of God like a fragrant aroma. This imagery draws on Roman triumphal processions where the scent of incense would fill the air. Here, the fragrance represents the knowledge of God being spread everywhere by the apostles and Christians. It’s a celebration of the divine victory over sin and death, and the role of believers in making the presence and power of God known in the world.

    **Revelation 15:2** says:
    “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.”

    This verse is part of a vision of heaven and the end times. It describes those who have emerged victorious over the beast and its system, a symbol of opposition to God and His people. The “sea of glass mingled with fire” likely symbolizes purity and judgment, and those standing on it are the faithful who have remained loyal to God amidst persecution and trials. Their victory is celebrated in a heavenly context, indicating their eternal reward and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. The imagery is rich with the themes of judgment, purification, and the final defeat of all that opposes God.

    Together, these verses affirm the theme of God’s people achieving victory through faithfulness and divine empowerment. While 2 Corinthians 2:14 focuses on the spreading of the Gospel and the spiritual victory in Christ, Revelation 15:2 looks forward to the eschatological victory over evil. Both verses encourage believers to remain steadfast, highlighting the triumph that comes through God’s power and the fulfillment of His promises.

    I was hit with some news from my son Logan who is not walking with the Lord. I really believers to stand with me in prayer for miracle of his salvation. I can not say here. Lord knows. It is critical moment in his life now. Oh, Father give me wisdom how to pray for You to win this victory in Jesus name.
