Love For His People – moving forward in our 9th year with you. For them.

Dear friends of Love For His People,

Just over a year ago – Saturday, July 1, 2017 – was a very special day for me.

Seven years ago on June 30, 2010, I had left the third ministry I had worked for in the past 24 years (this one was Vision for Israel with Barry and Batya Segal, after 14 years at Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda Ministries/All Nations Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, and eight years total at Derek Prince Ministries (Ft. Lauderdale and Charlotte), finishing with the last five at VFI. (Some years I split the 40 hour work week between two of them if you are a numbers person counting the years.)

The complete reason in departing my service at VFI was to start a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie and I. We called it Love For His People (officially formed in April 2010 with our USA non-profit, 501(c)3 approval) – primarily to bless the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers, those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.

As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization/ministry to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael – the Land of Israel – in this world of nations that continually becomes more anti-Semitic daily. We have been called, as the prophetic word in 2002 was spoken, as a “scepter for Israel.”


 With both Laurie and I saved and called to be man and woman in the Lord Jesus Christ, our heart’s desire is to do our part in speaking up for those who, for centuries, experienced nothing more than “hate” in the “name of Christ”, from so-called Christians. That included Adolf Hitler himself, who used Martin Luther’s last completely inerrant days, of non-Scriptural theology, to espouse Replacement Theology. This totally wrong belief that the “church” had replaced Israel as the one receiving the promises of the God of Israel. Today, it continues to be totally inaccurate, both historically and spiritually.

Thus, with these seven years now completed since the start of Love For His People (seven being “completion” in the Lord’s number listing), it is similar to the seven ones that King Solomon took to complete the first Jewish Temple on the Mount (in Jerusalem, ISRAEL) centuries ago. As it states in the Torah, “he was seven years in building it.” (1 Kings 6:38).

As a side note, this fact alone is proof enough that ALL of Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. The Jews had been given, and on many occasions even bought, the land of Israel they have now returned too.

We now begin our 9th year with the ministry of Love For His People, Inc

Israel, of course, continues to be the main objective in our support, but we also will be standing with those others who join alongside us in helping Jews make aliyah (return to Israel), speak out for the nation, and appreciate their Jewish roots as believers in Jesus (Yeshua).

We ask you to join us in our continuing efforts.

This ministry, with no staff or paid contractors, sends monthly funds to families in Jerusalem. For some of these, it has been for over seven years now. Consistently. Each month.

Our daily blog Love For His People also features my messages Now Think On This, which then are posted to our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. These messages are then printed into books (15 as of this date) on various encouraging and uplifting subjects.

Our Love For His People blog regularly shares Messianic news posted by Israel Today, with Aviel Schneider, Russ Jones, and team. Other news and prophetic ministry outlets, CharismaNews, CBN News Jerusalem, Breaking Israel News, Israel365, The Elijah List, are reposted to give you the truth, current events and relevant articles to help you grow in spirit, soul, and body.
