April 16, 2021

“With God we will do mighty things, and He will trample our foes.” Psalm 60:14 (TLV) As Israel is commemorating both Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day or Israel Fallen Soldier’s Remembrance Day) and Yom HaAtzmaut (Independence Day) this week, I am reminded of both the sacrifices made by so many and the miraculous victories God has brought to pass for Israel and her people. I am also reminded of you and your great compassion and love for the Jewish people. Thank you. In the news this week...

April 09, 2021

What an amazing time we live in. As dark as some aspects are, the Lord continues to map a way through this new territory we all navigate. This is especially true for our Global Outreach Team, who are our boots on the ground working to see Jewish people not only receive care and blessing, but most, and best of all, come to know Yeshua (Jesus). We have wholeheartedly sought the Lord in this season, and He is answering with new strategies for ministry. As we follow His Spirit, He is helping us b...

Declare your support for Israel and the Jewish people

April 07, 2021

The United States has an established history of standing with Israel. Since President Truman supported the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, the U.S. has been a staunch ally of the Jewish State. One of the biggest moments in recent memory happened three years ago. On May 14, 2018, in honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, the new U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem. This was after spending decades in its temporary home in Tel Aviv. I’m so thankful that even in the midst of the sweeping chang...

Passover Day 8 – Saved to Glorify God

April 03, 2021

“Adonai is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation. This is my God, and I will glorify Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him” (Exodus 15:2). The word glorify has several related meanings. One indicates that when we glorify God, we worship or praise Him. Another meaning is to reveal God as glorious. Yet another definition of glorifying is to light up or shine. When the Lord called His people out of Egypt to be His own, He called us out of slavery to a new, free lif...

April 02, 2021

“So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, to bring them up out of that land into a good and large land, a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 3:8). Passover is a wonderful time of remembrance when we reflect on& how God delivered and provided for His Chosen People. For 40 years, He sustained our ancestors in the wilderness. In a desolate land, He provided manna for food and water from rocks. Through all that time, the clothing of the Israelites never...

The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night never departed from the people” (Exodus 13:21–22). God called the Israelites out of Egypt, freeing them from bondage to evil masters, not to be without guidance or covering. He led them with His presence in pillars of cloud and fire. He directed them where to go, when to ...

Passover Day 5 – Saved to be God’s Own

March 31, 2021

“I will take you to Myself as a people, and I will be your God. You will know that I am Adonai your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians” (Exodus 6:7). The Israelites had suffered as slaves in Egypt for 430 years. When God called them out of bondage, He called them into a deeper relationship with Him. He promised to be their God, and they would be His people, and He would walk among them. He said they would be His “inheritance” and His treasured possession. ...

Passover Day 4 – Saved and Supplied

March 30, 2021

“Adonai gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians and let them have what they asked for. So they plundered the Egyptians” (Exodus 12:36). God saved the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt and sent them off into the wilderness as free people. Our ancestors had to leave in a hurry – so much so that their bread didn’t have time to rise, and they took the dough still in their bowls. Yet, even in their haste, they were able to take their livestock. Not only that, God instructed the Isra...
