Inside Israel – Update

Hi all! God bless you this day as you rejoice in Jesus. Thanks for stopping by for a look inside Israel. This is an older update from J of Jerusalem, a Jewish believer, back from December 4, 2010. Hoping it will still bless someone and help us all to keep praying! Now, here’s J . . .

Thank you for the many responses to my email. With great joy I share that after I visited Marin in the hospital this morning, she called and told me through tears that her husband Rudy had accepted The Lord! After that, he asked her not to leave his side. Although he is past 90 and she in her 70s, a marriage with only one partner walking with Him is ALWAYS rocky. She is now looking forward to the short time that they have left together to be one of unity and fellowship. He is to have electroshock to his heart tomorrow morning which they were told is their last medical hope. They ask for prayer. Thank you for praying for this special couple.

Since we KNOW that He hears and answers prayer, and our fires still rage, we know that He has something specific for us to hear. In my spirit I am cautioned NOT to jump to conclusions or grab at obvious scriptures, but to WAIT on Him and listen. While I am doing what is written (pray, humble myself, repent) I have been praying for ears and heart to HEAR what He is saying.

Currently (as we suspected might happen) there are many other fires breaking out around the country as those who hate us within sense that if they can start other raging fires…well, you understand. With vigilance, these have been put out quickly. Particularly around Jerusalem they have been set.

We have received foreign help, mostly in the form of planes and chemicals for fighting fires from a large number of countries. We heard today that Bulgaria was the first to send help, and also surprised us by sending top notch fire fighters and some of their experts. Bulgaria has been a great friend of Israel. America has promised chemicals, but they have yet to arrive. Russia has sent some very useful equipment and help. However, our ‘neighbors’ are using this vision of Israel asking for help to strengthen their own arms (see article below). I think of the books of Ezra and Nehemiah and how our weakness is perceived and gloated over. But (wouldn’t you know it!) one of the places that I was reading this morning was Isa 44 and 45…and even as The Lord chastens and calls us to Himself, He has NOT forsaken us and eventually we, as well as those who hate us, will see that He is GOD, and that He is well able to glorify Himself here, as He said!

A friend sent a link to a wonderful blog from here (so well written and with pictures too!) that I think might be a blessing to you, so I include it here

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!! Lovingly, your sis in Yeshua

Sowers

“Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, ‘Behold, a sower went out to sow.'”¬† Matthew 13:3

In the parable of the sower and the interpretation Jesus gives to His disciples, He never once faults the sower for where the seed falls.

Oh Jesus, help us to spread Your word as often and as much as we can, not withholding it according  to our judgment of the soil condition of the hearts around us.  Here is a simple poem . . .

Open That Hand

Whatcha gonna do with that seed He brought
gonna hold it tight, with all you’ve got
’til you find the perfect place, just the right spot
where you can make sure it grows, as you think it ought
Oh, whatcha gonna do with that seed He brought?
