Make His Deeds Known Among the Nations
Now Think On This
“And as you do it, you’ll say, “Give thanks to God. Call out his name. Ask him anything! Shout to the nations, tell them what he’s done, spread the news of his great reputation! Sing praise-songs to God. He’s done it all! Let the whole earth know what he’s done! Raise the roof! Sing your hearts out, O Zion! The Greatest lives among you: The Holy of Israel.” (Isaiah 12:4-6, THE MESSAGE)

Coming to a close today is one of the best adventures I have had in these 63 years of living, with this soon completion of my 18th trip to Israel. They are cherished days to be home with my good wife and family, but it is also a wonderful time to be among those whom the Lord has brought back from the many nations from which they have been scattered.
We are living in the amazing times of biblical prophecy being fulfilled right before our eye. I must shout out (or write, as I best do), what He has done, the Holy One of Israel.
With all that is happening, nothing must stop you and me from walking in His ways, protection, and abundance, as we commit ourselves to His daily purposes and plans. And on this particular journey, even the two canceled flights (there and back) and all that entailed; nor the WiFi that daily kept knocking me off from uploading my wonderful 1,700 photos and 71 fun hearted (and a few serious) short videos taken in Israel, could hold me back. Not even the pesky, cursed mosquitoes that bit up my feet often in the middle of the night, as I got 4-5 hours of sleep each day to refuel for the next one.
Nothing should stop us from pursuing the living God, the One from Whom all the nations must seek and find their fulfillment in.
As we see Him bringing back the Jews from all the nations – Russia, France, England, China, Ethiopia, India, the USA, and so many more, to the Promised Land of Israel, we must give thanks, declare and make known that the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach) and the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) are together performing their mighty acts. It is truly a wonder to behold.

Spending time with my Jewish friends of Israel is always the best time. Nissim and Hadassah Lerner from Giv’at Ze’ev (originally from Virginia); Abraham Saidan and his family who made aliyah (immigrated) from Iran; Louie the Old City Arab gift shop owner who always gives me the real “best price”; my new friend Shlomo (Solomon) in the Jewish Quarter; and Rabbi Kokeb Gedamu and his wife Menalu (Congregation Amud HaEsh), who are Ethiopian Messianic Jews bringing hope and teaching to those who also came from the south to Israel.

Sharing this bond of our Father’s love is uniting the Jews and Christians together there in the land, along with those of us who have heard and received the call to stand with them.
Our Mighty God is doing it. He is manifesting Himself, showing His glory, and revealing His heart for the nations.
Being a part of it all is a thrill for a lifetime.
