Time for Worship!

Welcome friends!  A few weeks ago, the Lord led us into worship together as I shared a short video containing a worship song in Hebrew and English.  The response was overwhelming, as many shared with me how much they enjoyed the worship.  I believe that pleases the Lord and I want to spend more time in worship with you.

So, it’s time for worship!  Will you join me in the presence of the Lord today as we worship the holy name of Yeshua (Jesus) together?  May you be richly blessed!

 

Amir Tsarfati Speaking in the US on Sunday

Ok Bible students, you have another opportunity to hear good, solid Bible teaching from Amir Tsarfati.  He will teach his new lesson on 70 Weeks of Daniel, helping us understand the crucial prophecy regarding Jesus’ first coming and His Second Coming, and the timing of those events.  God laid it out for the prophet Daniel who recorded it for us!

If you are in the Euless TX area (just southwest of DFW airport), consider going to hear Amir’s teaching live.  He will be at First Euless Church at 11:00am (Central).  (For more information click here.)  There is a “Watch Live” button on FEC’s website, so I suspect it will be live streamed.  If not, there are plans to record it, so look for it on that website, or on Amir Tsarfati’s YouTube channel.

Plug in, my friends!  It is important to know and understand the times in which we live, in light of Scripture.  You will get that in Amir’s teaching.  Enjoy!

NFL Hall-of-Famers’ Visit to Israel “Changed our Lives”

Most don’t view Israel as a hotspot for sports.  However, Israel has seen recent successes in Olympic competition, as well as in soccer and other sports.

Recently Jewish New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, sponsored a tour of 18 NFL Hall-of-Famers to Israel to promote American football, and to provide a glimpse into the truth about Israel (despite what media outlets portray).  Only 2 of the 18 had previously been to Israel.

While there, the former greats provided coaching and encouragement to Israeli high schoolers as they hit the gridiron.  As they promoted the game, they were met with great fanfare and appreciation.

However, I think God had bigger plans for that trip than simply promoting football.  Not only did the stars learn much about Israel’s history and tour many Christian sites, but many took advantage of the opportunity to be baptized in the Jordan River (as Jesus was).

According to Breaking Israel News:

Cornerback Lem Barney told media that he had been drawn to Israel for religious reasons. Barney, who serves as associate minister at Empowerment Church in Southfield, Michigan, described the “great spirituality” in the country. “This is a dream come true,” he said.

“Israel is the center of what’s happening, and it’s good to see it,” added tight end Dave Casper.

Pro-bowler Jerome Bettis told attendees at a Sunday football event in Jerusalem that the trip had been incredibly meaningful for he and his wife, saying it had “changed our lives.”

“A dream come true…Israel is the center of what’s happening…changed our lives.”

Visiting Israel will do that to a person!  Which leads me to ask: What was more dramatic, the Hall-of-Famers’ promotion of football, or Israel’s impact on the lives of those Hall-of-Famers?

I dare say, those men likely left knowing they had been far greater blessed than they ever imagined.  Superstar Joe Montana may have said it best:

“While we come here on a mission for American football, I think we take home a lot more than we bring.”

Amen to that!  If you have never been to Israel, put it on your list!  Your life will be changed, and you will take home more than you ever thought possible!

Please Take Action!

Hi friends!  I’m going off the beaten path today, but I want you to understand why.  Though no one knows the day or the hour in which our Savior will return, we are told to be ready (Matthew 24:36-50, Matthew 25:1-13).  Jesus also taught the principle of knowing and understanding the times and the seasons in which we live (Matthew 24:32-35, Luke 12:54-56).  2 Timothy 3:1-5 even gives us a list of characteristics we will find to be true on a very broad scale in the last days.

We are in those days.

One of the most horrific things I can think of to grieve the heart of God is the mass murder of unborn children in their mothers’ wombs.  Abortion continues to be rampant in our world, and embarrassingly so in the United States where the rights of those children are brutally trampled under foot.

Jesus lived out,  and passed on, a very specific principle regarding “being about His Father’s business” (Luke 2:49, for example).  We would be wise to live out the same principle.  But how?  Many ways…some simple,  some not so simple…and God’s call is different for each of us.

However, I think we can all do the simple things, such as fight for the lives and rights of the unborn.  So, here is an opportunity to faithfully “be about the Father’s business” as it pertains to that battle.

Please sign a petition to defund Planned Parenthood.  According to information from Senator Ted Cruz’s office (R – TX), that organization alone is responsible for 300,000 abortions per year, and is funded by $500 MILLION of taxpayer money annually.  Though PP ads come across as working for the interests of mothers, you must know that PP executives have been caught on video negotiating prices for baby body parts, discussing how to more efficiently harvest organs (for sale), and bragging about the profit from the sale of those baby body parts.  Don’t believe me?  See those videos here.

With the current majority in Congress who campaigned on conservative platforms, now is the time for our Senators and Congressmen to take action.  In these last days, let’s be about our Father’s business.  Let’s speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 31:8-9).  Let’s tell our elected leaders that we expect them to stand for righteousness.  Let’s bombard Congress with petitions stating our position.  It will take you less than 20 seconds.

SIGN THE PETITION HERE

Blessings!
