Lebanon is still recovering from the massive explosion in the port of Beirut that shattered windows around the city and killed hundreds. Read more about the strength of the explosion here.


We reported previously that Lebanon had authorized the military to use special powers after the Beirut explosion. But Pierre Houssney of Horizons International says, “I wish that there would be martial law. And most Lebanese people would love the military to take over. Because this has been yet another fake resignation of the government.”

Houssney says this resignation is largely symbolic. The administrative wing resigned, but not the parliament or the president. “It’s just well-known now that behind all of these presidents and institutions, Hezbollah really calls the shots and approves any major decision that’s going on.”

Government corruption paved the way for the explosion to happen, and Lebanese want a thorough investigation. Even the FBI has started looking at the details surrounding the blast.

  • Pray that as Christians help in ways the government won’t, many will see their love and be drawn to Christ.
  • Consider helping people of Beirut financially through channels that the government can’t manipulate.
