Wise Men Still Seek Him

ISRAEL E-CARD Volume 4 Issue 24 December 15, 2010

Topic #1  Jesus Is My Reason for the Season

Christmas once again dominates the conversation. The convergence of agendas creates extra pressure. Congress is down to the wire again this year passing tax relief and cramming another 20,000 hidden earmarks in the omnibus CR (Continuing Resolution) just to fund the government. Atheists are attacking belief in God on billboards. Merchants are clamoring and almost begging as they vie for our dollars. Shoppers are frenzied with last minute pressure to avoid offending by their gifts or lack thereof. Whew!

And oh, by the way, the Creator of the Universe was born into our humanity for the express purpose of bringing fallen man back into loving relationship with our heavenly Father. Jesus is buried under the avalanche of commercialism, government chaos, and personal gratification. Yet, miraculously, the name of Jesus is heard everywhere. Once a year Jesus’ name is in the news (even though scholars believe His actual birth was probably in late September). The Messiah is news even at Macy’s. (Yes, you will really be blessed to click on this link.) I pray you recognize the choices before you, choose wisely and be blessed. As for me and my house, we will serve Jesus (Yahweh Yeshua: God is salvation).

Topic #2 Fire Rain and SNOW!

During Israel’s worst fire, we prayed for rain to end the drought. Last week brought enough rain to replace the deficit of the previous two months. Last weekend four feet of snow fell in the Golan foothills and twelve feet on Mt. Hermon. Thanks to God for His mercy. Pray Israel will recognize and turn to Him.

Topic # 3 Motor Home Project Update

We are very close to the 5K level and then 3K more to reach our first goal of 8K to take possession. (The remainder of the total 12K price would be at 500 a month for 8 months interest free.) Please pray and ask the Lord if you can give a year end donation to help us get over the top. Thank you for your prayers for Elisha Vision and for Doreen and me personally.

He took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel. “And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” Luke 2:28-33
