Conversation with Joel C. Rosenberg

I recently had the privilege of sitting down in our studio with my dear friend, Joel Rosenberg.  You may know Joel through his many NY Times bestselling books, his educational and charitable organization, The Joshua Fund, or his blog ( and Twitter account (@joelcrosenberg), both of which I follow and strongly recommend you do as well.

I know Joel as passionate Follower of Jesus Christ, whose heart for the Gospel to be proclaimed and embraced in the Middle East, even in Iran, is unmatched and genuine.

During his visit, Joel and I sat down and had a wonderful conversation about the Middle East and specifically his thoughts related to Iran in the Scriptures and the unique role the Lord has in store for this dangerous, beautiful and spiritually open country.

  2. Hello Hormoz,

    My name is Angela, I live in the U. S in Chicago, IL. I received an email from Joel C. to watch this nice interview and all I can say is that I’m overjoyed by The Great news as to what God is doing. I can totally see The Lord’s Glory upon you and that’s a beautiful thing to see….I have been praying for Muslims all around the world that they would all come to know the Truth….That Our Lord Jesus Christ is The Truth, The Light and The Way and that they’d all some day come to believe, worship and serve The Lord just as you are doing and is a Light in this world :) God is Good! And I will continue to pray for all!! May God Bless you and your ministry always

    Thanks for sharing

  3. I’m amazed a the love of God towards the people of the Middle East, they are so very hungry and the Lord is filling them with the knowledge of His Word, this is awesome because we are living in the last days, and things are wrapping up…

  4. I’m very much impressed with this wonderful interview especially to see how the Holy Spirit is transforming many Iranians & others in the Middle East in accepting our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives.
    I pray that God will give me a heart & passion for his people as he has done for these great men of God. Thank you brother Shariat, I’ve marked the above listed fields to be in contact with your ministry to assist in anyway the Holy Spirit leads me. Thank God for this ministry! Amen!

  5. […] This is a not-to-be-missed interview by Hormoz Shariat with Joel Rosenberg. What excited me was not just the great news of what God is doing in Iran right now, but also that in spite of His coming judgement on Iran and Gog, God is so determined to bless these people that He says He will set up His throne in Iran. This is clearly impossible in man's mind as Iran is hardline Islamic and the Twelver's are looking for the coming of the false messiah and the return of their false Jesus, but nothing is impossible with God. Not mentioned here but referred to by Joel from time to time is God's plan to bless Egypt. Now think of this for a moment: two nations that are hardline against God's Word but God is going to do as He did with Nebuchadnezzar and bring them low that they may recognize His hand and so He will bless them as they lift Him up. Everything is written for our encouragement upon whom the ends of the world has come, so if you are praying for a situation that is impossible and you can't get through, then be encouraged and remember that in God's time He can do miracles that shock and confound everyone.
