Update from Israel
Please forgive me for not being in touch since coming to Israel.
My first reason for not blogging, is that I was so involved in leading our initial 3BI Tour to Israel. This study-heavy tour, the first of its kind, will make a superb online course.
Days we travelled and videoed with an amazing group of 88 students.
Nights I prepared for the next day.
We hired a top notch Israeli “film” crew. In fact, after viewing their very professional work, I questioned if we could produce a product of the quality they had done. Right away my qualms were eased through one of the cameramen’s story.
The tall blond young man named Hans leaned down to me and in his quiet voice touched with a bit of a tremor he told me how he had chosen his life’s profession. Thirty-three years ago, I had preached in an underground church in Estonia, then part of the USSR. The Finnish pastor who’d accompanied us videoed the service. Three years later, young Hans saw the video of my teaching. The video, the first he’d ever seen, so impressed him that he decided he wanted to make videos as his life’s ambition. He felt a call to spread the Gospel in this way. He works freelance for the company we hired. When they told him he was to meet this lady, Billye, at a certain place. He asked, “Billye who?” The witness of the Spirit of God came upon him as he found out it was me. And when he told me this story, I knew God’s hand was upon the project. Thank you, Lord.
Desiring to study the Land in biblical order, we began at Beer Sheva.
Scripture reveals Beer Sheva as a coming in and going out place of the Patriarchs. It was also a place of their visions.
A few thousand years later, it became the entry into the events that led to the establishment of the modern state of Israel. It was the place of the great cavalry charge of the 800 *ANZAC Light Horsemen that led to the freeing of Jerusalem from the Ottoman Turks in 1917. I’d assigned the tour-students to read Col Stringer’s exciting book (click here to view book) about the event before we came. And as we stood at the magnificent statue lauding both the horses and their riders, everyone was impressed with the fearlessness it took to open the door which began what will finally be the end of the nations’ “trodding down” Jerusalem.
Which brings me to the subject of fear. News concerning the coronavirus has swallowed up news of the election, and other topics. And even public Purim celebrations.
In the whole of the country of 9 million, they have only 58 cases. Israel has no cases that were not “brought in” from other countries. So–the government is refusing entry to Israel from many other countries. Asian countries. Italy. France. And many others. Today they ruled that anyone coming into this country from anywhere has to undergo a 14-day quarantine. The tourist industry is hurt.
I’m really amazed at how fear has gripped the world. I checked today the status of the virus in America state-by-state.
Missouri has 1 case.
Oklahoma has 1 case.
What has happened to the world! The fear is worse than the virus. President Roosevelt said during WWII, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”
Everyday on the tour we read Psalm 91 aloud together. As you know, it includes: “You shall not fear…the pestilence that walks in gloom….no evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. He will charge His angels for you, to protect you in all your ways.”
We sat in our seats of authority, and declared the virus would not come near our dwellings. Then we proceeded to enjoy our very full days with no fear.
Forgetfulness of God
Israel in the Plan of God
Commenting on Isaiah 51
“I, I am He who comforts you;
who are you that you are afraid of man who dies,
of the son of man who is made like grass,
and have forgotten the LORD, your Maker,
who stretched out the heavens
and laid the foundations of the earth,
and you fear continually all the day
because of the wrath of the oppressor,
when he sets himself (aims) to destroy?
…it is not only foolish and unreasonable for Zion to fear, but sinful; for fear is the offspring of unbelief and the result of forgetfulness of God.
How wonderful is the grace of God which expresses itself even in this rebuke! For He seeks at the same time to drive out their fear, and create confidence by reminding them of His all-sufficient power to save, You fear because you forget Me, and only look round and about, and see the enemy making ready to destroy. But look up, and remember that “I Am with thee.” The covenant keeping, faithful God who will never fail thee, “Thy Maker” who is surely able to protect thee.
Tune in Tomorrow!!!!!
I will write and post another blog tomorrow. And I will be on the 8 AM Prayer Call for Israel.
As for our Wednesday Live Webcast, my daughter Brenda will be leading Noon Prayer.

I love hearing from you and feel so

Can’t wait for tomorrow’s prayer call. I look forward to the time I will join one of these study tours. Greetings to Shellie, Chip and Candace.
Sitting in our seat in the heavens in Christ for CA. We are taking our authority over this virus and the fear. Cursing the darkness and speaking life and light. One whole school district where Dean Braxton just preached last month had closed all schools. It is to reopen next week, in Jesus name! Glory!
Thank you! I agree completely.
Dr. Billye, Thank You and I in total agreement! God Bless You!!
Thank you sis. Billye for your blogs! I love the one I just read from Israel! I recently ordered your book, “First of All…” and several small booklets, and am reading them now. Your information is excellent and I re read them all, and replay your CDs too. Some day I would love to be able to visit Israel and visit a cousin who lives there. I was wondering if I it is permissible for me to put a portion of your blog on my Facebook page, with your name for credit? Thank you so much for your ministry. Blessing on you all as you stay strong for the Master!
So good to hear your encouragement along with watching Sid Roth’s message about the virus. I’ve told my granddaughter to find Psalm 91 in her Bible and read it with her family. Fear is being routed out of my being and I’m claiming release from fear for all I’m connected to. Shalom and Amen!
So happy to hear from you. Looking forward to praying with you tomorrow morning.
Thanks for the update. I love and pray for Israel..How exciting for you to meet the young man called because of your video! Shalom!

Thank you sooo much for being “right on time”.. I decided to watch my local news from Dayton, Ohio.. and thought that people have overreacted and being dramatic!!!.. for no reason! Some Of the public seem to enjoy being in fear!! I thought that possibly I was missing the reality. Pastor Billye; You have been on my mind and in my heart and
prayers! As I take my place of Authority in prayer .. I am at peace.!Sending Much Love
Always good to hear from you????
Greetings sister Billy: It is so good to hear that all is going like clock work and even could be on a literal sense of the term.

Been praying for you, wasn’t sure if you & your group could get out of Israel. Heard a report saying they were closing the big airport.
Thanks for the wonderful testimony of the film maker.. I moved to a place of light. I am having difficulty breathing at night, sucking my breath all night.. Cyst on my left ovary went from 5 to 7. I am going to Er tommorrow. Thanks for your faithful witness. You are in Israel for such a time as this, like Esther.
So wonderful to meet you again Sister Billye, Shelli, Chip & Candace while our Group was in Tiberius last week. You & your family blessed me so much. Thank you for sharing about your study tour & encouraging words re the Coronavirus. God richly bless you. From the 2 Aussie girls from 2009 tour.
Thank you so much for this timely message of encouragement! (No fear here ….we remember hearing this years ago: “The safest place to be is in the will of God”) We are delighted to hear how the Lord is orchestrating things in the ministry so beautifully. Certainly His hand is guiding and blessing 3BI for His glory. (Love the connection made!) Our son has the same desire in his heart….to create film that glorifies God and spreads the Gospel and it’s so clear to see Him at work in his young life. We look forward to joining you all on the call tomorrow morning! Shalom Family!
Thank you Billye, I am always blessed with your ministry. Thank you for sharing with us. Enjoy Israel, they will surely enjoy you.
Because of PSALM 91 and knowing that you cover me and mine(partners) when you sit in your seat of authority daily, I fear no evil and believe that the virus cannot befall me and mine. That rest and trust is beyond explanation except it is truth.
Thank you for the words of the LORD our God! Feel like I am there with you. Staying in my seat every morning in my authority in HIM as you taught me to do. I am so thankful for you, my Sister Billye and I love you so very much! You and all of your family are in my prayers every day.
Thank you for all you do for the Body of Christ! God bless you in all His Ways! Love Sis Laura!
So good to hear your voice on the prayer call this morning! God is so Good!! Blessings to you and Shelli as you travel back home. Thank you for ALL you Do and all you’ve taught us. I sit in my seat of authority every morning in the state of Idaho!! Love You!!
Hi! What Bible is Billye quoting The 91st Psalm from, please? Thank you.
We usually use Amp. and personalize it. Example: I drell in the secret place. Blessings Jan
I love you Dr. Brim and thank God for your hearing heart and your willing obedience to our Glorious Savior Jesus Christ, or Redeemer and LORD. Keep the faith that has been delivered to you and stay focused on love. To His great glory. Amen.
Yes. On the Victory Network. Dish Network. God TV. NOW Network
Read the March 10 Blog. Do you see the role of The Body of Christ in this time right now? What an opportunity for the Church to come together in UNITY to take authority over this fear and satanic attack? We can wipe this out World Wide with our authority.
I am so happy for the 88; we will all benefit from this trip and teaching!
May our God enlarge your borders and may the Sword of the Word cut assunder anything placed in your path. May the Blood of Jesus cover and keep you all. Shalom
Hi! Glad your trip was successful and you all got back safely. You have been in my prayers. God Bless and take a good REST.????
I so enjoy your perspective on the current events concerning Israel and the world. I love Israel and I love the USA.
Please keep us updated.
Dr. Billye, So glad you did the tour and took time out to update us with what is done each day I feel so part of it even though I am not there to learn and to enjoy every highlighted moment of it. Thank God I have been there once and every time I read the Bible or one of your blogs when you are there it makes me feel as if I am right there with you all. Little did you know what God did for this young man Hans through the teaching of the word; truly there is no secret what God can and will do.
Glad you touched on the spirit of fear that has caused panic in our nation This spirit of fear that wants to rule in our nation will not be tolerated we have too much of God inside of us to sit still and be quietly forgetting our God given authority to stand against this evil invasion. Waiting to see how this all will have to fizzle out to nothing.
Watching for your next blog. Blessings.
So wonderful to read your faithful message, I have been seeking faith filled messages as it seems that it’s almost impossible to find prayers with some muscle behind them online. For all who may be interested Jesse DuPlantis preached last Sunday at his church, a wonderful message called What’s Behind the Coronavirus. Part 1 and 2 on YouTube. We as the faith filled church must stick together in one accord as our strength abides in unity. Amen! Blessing to all
