Kenya banner

We leave tomorrow, Nov 29 for two weeks ministering in Kenya. You may be able to make out our picture on the left side of the above banner. Pastor Michael Masambu specifically requested that I speak in seven sessions on the covenant with Israel for all believers. There are expected to be 2,000 young future leaders of Africa at this conference. The ages include high school, college and young professionals from Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania.

We covet your prayerful intercession as we speak the heart of God for His beloved Israel. I will also be speaking in churches in Nairobi and elsewhere. If you are on Facebook, I hope to post updates on our Elisha Vision page. When you visit, please like the page. Thank you.

 “This is what Yehovah says: You have said, ‘This is a desolate land where people and animals have all disappeared.’ Yet in the empty streets of Jerusalem and Judah’s other towns, there will be heard once more the sounds of joy and laughter. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will be heard again, along with the joyous songs of people bringing thanksgiving offerings to Yehovah. They will sing, ‘Give thanks to Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies, for Yehovah is good. His faithful love endures forever!’ For I will restore the prosperity of this land to what it was in the past, says Yehovah. Jeremiah 33:10-11 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

HIS-Story

9 11 2018

j0309700The only accurate way to look at the history of the world, is to see it as God’s story. The written records of history from fossils to the Bible all tell one single narrative. It’s HIS-story. In fact, the best way to view the Bible, is as God’s recording of history, much of it even before it happens in our time/space continuum.

My friend, Rick Heeren, inspired me to write this blog from an important view of the Torah that we both share. The Torah (aka the Old Testament) was not cancelled when Yeshua/Jesus came as the Messiah. He was the Promised One to Abraham and all generations. His appearance brought to pass much of what was promised to the Fathers and the Prophets.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Matthew 5:16-18

Notice the phrase “jot or tittle.” Jesus knew exactly what he said, because He was referring literally to the tiniest letter (yod) and the tiniest marks in the writing of Hebrew letters. What an amazing confirmation by Jesus, that every word God spoke will come to pass to the most exact detail! Listen to Joshua, a forerunner of Yeshua/Jesus:

“Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yehovah your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.” Joshua 23:14

Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:9

Yet, the narrative did not end there. Even today much remains to be fulfilled, that was sworn by Yehovah God, to Abraham thousands of years ago. My favorite example is Psalm 102, which I call The Holocaust Psalm. The first eleven verses are a graphic literal description of the Holocaust. Then, verse 13 clearly states:

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

This also is readily seen in history. From 70 AD (the destruction of the 2nd Temple by the Romans) until 1948, the Jews never won a war. Since the rebirth of Israel immediately after the Holocaust, according to HIS-story, the Jews have never lost a war. Only Yehovah, the faithful God, could accomplish such a continuing miracle up to today. If one tries to predict the future, he only need consult the Bible as a continuing literal historical narrative. SELAH

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Never Again!

Let’s get one thing straight… Israel is back in their own land and will never again be uprooted.

“I will firmly plant them there in their own land. They will never again be uprooted from the land I have given them,” says Yehovah your God. Amos 9:15

This promise reveals two things. First, Israel has been uprooted in the past. And second, when they come back from all the nations where they have been scattered, they will never be uprooted again! We are living in the time of history where this prophecy is fulfilled.

Dismiss the nations raging against God’s people. Don’t listen to the demonic threats of annihilation. Yehovah God is on the Throne and He will defend His chosen ones. Rejoice in this short quotation from Amos. It is only one of many such promises in the Bible.

hayovelharvest“The time will come,” says Yehovah, “when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine!
I will bring my exiled people of Israel back from distant lands, and they will rebuild their ruined cities and live in them again. They will plant vineyards and gardens; they will eat their crops and drink their wine.
I will firmly plant them there in their own land. They will never again be uprooted
from the land I have given them,” says Yehovah your God. Amos 9:13-15 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
