God has a specific plan for the Middle East. Though the region is filled with turmoil and conflict, He has a specific purpose for the region. We have to understand that the source of the conflict in the Middle East is primarily spiritual and ultimately is resistance to God establishing the throne of His Son. Just as the Scripture gives us specific information about God’s plan for regions in the Middle East, He also gives us specific information about the expression of the church in this generation. It is our responsibility to understand these descriptions of the church and to labor to build the church according to the pattern God has given. The notes in this session summarize many of the topics emphasized in previous sessions relating to the expression of the church.
