I was a young believer. I had only known Yeshua for a little over a year when I was led to invest in silver. I purchased two $1,000 bags of silver coins and hid them in a hole I cut out in the wall behind our washing machine. It was early in 1976 and the Hunt brothers had begun a scheme to corner the world market in silver. Every day my investment increased in value substantially. One day, I heard ...Continue Reading →
I(Jamie) was a bit exhausted after the Esther Tea at our home, but I pushed myself yesterday to go to Curves to exercise anyway. I was shocked when an elderly woman approached me to thank me for inspiring her to smile, and be more energetic in her exercising. Then she asked me why I had such joy. I explained to her that it was Yeshua’s joy, the joy He said would be in His followers, the joy He said would ...Continue Reading →
The Lord blessed our Esther Tea yesterday as 12 ladies gathered at our home to hear about a God who wears a mask in the Book of Esther, but is ON THE SCENE! A precious Jewish woman came – Patti – whom we met through a “God-incidence.” We found her husband’s wallet two months ago on the ground at a gas station. It was filled with cash, credit cards, and his driver’s license. A potential disaster. We were just leaving ...Continue Reading →
Israeli Medical Team Heads for Japan
Israel was the first country to offer assistance to the Japanese government a scant hour after hearing news of the tragic 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami. In response, an official request from Tokyo for aid from Jerusalem resulted in a first responder team of two doctors and one officer from Israel’s Home Front Command departing from Ben Gurion International Airport Saturday night.
The Japanese ambassador was among those present at the airport to wish the team well ...Continue Reading →
The fundamental issue between the Jews and the Arabs in the middle east is a cultural worldview. The Jewish people celebrate LIFE while the Arabs celebrate DEATH. It has often been said: “If all the Arabs put down their weapons there would be no more war, but if all the Jews put down their weapons there would be no more Jews.”
It has taken me several days to be able to calm my spirit enough to report on the following tragedy.
About ...Continue Reading →
We have just been informed of a special Esther Fast – one day on water – called by Asher Intrater, a senior leader of a Messianic congregation in Israel, from sundown Wed. 3/16 until sundown Thurs. 3/17. We are joining in this fast as we conclude our 21 day Daniel Fast. We all have been called to the Kingdom for such a time as this! Suggested Scripture to proclaim as you read the verses out loud: Esther Ch.3 &4, Zech.12:2-3,6-10 ...Continue Reading →
The celebration of Purim this year will begin on the evening of March 19. The book of Esther will be read in the Synagogue and children will dress up in costumes. Every little girl wants to be Esther and every little boy wants to be Mordecai. Everyone will BOO loudly whenever the name of Haman is mentioned in an attempt to obliterate this arch enemy of the Jewish people. Some will even write his name in chalk on the bottom ...Continue Reading →
Anti-Semitism has been around since God made a covenant with Abraham and told him: “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” It is a spiritual phenomenon. An attempt to prevent God’s promise from being fulfilled, thereby making God ...Continue Reading →
The Lord Yeshua never causes us to be “too busy.” We get that way by saying YES to other people and other things. [In data collected from 20,000 Christians (ages from 15 to 88 across 139 countries, Dr Zigarelli, a Professor at Charleston Southern University, found that about 6 in 10 Christians say it's "often" or "always" true that "the busyness of life gets in the way of developing my relationship with God."]Continue Reading →
I had a dream last night about a banquet. The chicken was tough as leather, the gravy on the mashed potatoes was burned, and the green peas were as hard as ball bearings. The people complained and grumbled. The Lord gave Neil the interpretation: 1/5 of the world goes to bed hungry every night. We don’t appreciate the food we have; both Physical and Spiritual. We are going to support a new ministry in each area.Continue Reading →
