Israel is Flourishing
This verse is a blessing in disguise. It implies that throughout the ages, no matter how many foreign empires occupy Israel, the land will not cooperate to bring forth its bounty. Only when the Jewish People return to the Land of Israel does it give forth its blessing and return to its former glory. Today, thanks to the return of its indigenous Jewish population, the Land of Israel is once again thriving and prosperous. Even the deserts of Israel are teeming with region appropriate plants and animals such as this Ibex, shown above, which is native to the Land.
STEVE & LAURIE MARTIN - LOVE FOR HIS PEOPLE FOUNDERS
My good wife Laurie and I (married 45 years), founded Love For His People Ministry in 2010. This work gives love and support to our friends in Israel and other nations with friendship and humanitarian aid. Through social media, Steve's messages, and our Ahava Adventures trips to Israel, it is a growing, effective organization.
Steve has also authored and published 36 books.
We live in the Charlotte, NC area and have four adult children, spouses, and eight grandkids.
Ahava and shalom with blessings on ye head!
