Shalom Dear Friends and Valued Partners,
How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
…for there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
Meridel and I, our sons and team want to thank you personally for your faithful support in Prayer and Finances in this very difficult time. Your partnership has blessed us in many meaningful ways that have furthered the Kingdom of God on earth. You are like Gideon’s army of victorious warriors. Each of you have chosen to stand with Israel and her peoples in this battle. Yes, we are small in number but strong because He is strong. There are more than 10,000 anti-Semitic and anti-Israel websites on the Internet. But there are barely 100 websites that stand for the truth about Biblical Israel. The difference in numbers is like the battle that faced Gideon’s army. Here are two pro Biblical Israel websites.
As the Scriptures say, “there is a famine in the land, a famine for the Word of God, “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
“when I will send a famine through the land
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord. Amos 8:11
Tragically, there is as well a famine for food or nourishment. God promises to provide food for the hungry. This is affirmed in the Jewish prayer called “Grace After Meals.” We all have to act in obedience to help feed the hungry. There are many organisations doing exactly this. But we at Jerusalem Vistas/Israel Vision have focused our outreach for fifty years to reach those starving for the Word of God. It is His life giving Word that satisfies the hungry and thirsting FOREVER!
For me, in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, it is the ideal time to point people back to the Word of God for comfort, solace, and guidance. Never before has the Word been more meaningful and relevant. Many, many times Jesus said to His disciples, FEAR NOT. We just have to believe and apply the Word in every circumstance of life. When He says be anxious for nothing that means, NOTHING!
Over the years we have sent the Word out via the Internet. We have gotten “hits” even from Muslim countries, including Saudi Arabia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Iran and Malaysia. That is ministry, This is your ministry. Thanks for helping us give away the Bread of Life. Muslim people are curious about Israel. Now the UAE connection to Israel is a MIRACLE and an answer to prayer. it is a new time on earth!
Statistics show that many of the major social media sites get many billion hits per year. Most people however stay on these site only a few seconds or a few minutes. Why? Because they are not getting fed. We have statistics that people who land on our sites stay for 5, 10, to 15 or 20 minutes because there is nutritious, inspiring and blessed food served up there. Praise God. He gets all the glory!
Over the years we have used the Biblical expression, “Send the Light” to describe our work. We are have opportunities to send His Light into the darkness using all types of media. Just watching the daily evening news lets us know it is needed.
“See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” Isaiah 60:1b, c
But this means that we have to be proactive, to be involved, to see this happen lets
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1a
Thanks for helping us to do as King David did so long ago…he fed his people in Israel a triple portion, a nourishing meal – bread, meat and wine. 2 Samuel 6:19 Thanks for,
1. Your partnership in sending out the Word is making a huge difference,
2. Because “My Word will always accomplish the purpose that I intended” Isaiah 55:11
3. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away but my Word will last forever. Matt 24:35
May God Bless you and yours with health, safety, prosperity and blessings.
In His Love from Jerusalem,
Jay and Meridel and team
