Greetings friends of Love For His People ministry!

The 1st day of the new decade! The Lord’s blessings on ye head!

In 2003 the Lord gave me a word to share with 5 major ministries in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, about working together more fully for His purposes. The 4-page letter emailed to them went over like a lead balloon. From the only one who took the time to reply, his answer was, “It will never happen.”

Wow. Real encouraging, right, when you think you heard from the Lord, and He wants this to happen!

I let it go, until 16 years later in October 2018 He spoke to me again. I didn’t want to hear it, knowing the reputational, financial, and spiritual cost that came with obeying, if I did choose to. (We always have a choice whether to obey or not.)

But I had to obey. What I feared most was not obeying the Lord, rather than all the rest that I knew I would face in challenges, hard work, and getting people to even consider something like this. And having administrated 44 conferences over a 24 year period with three ministries, I knew what it was going to take.

Have you ever resisted obeying the Lord? But I knew this was of Him, and thus He would make it happen if I did as His Holy Spirit led to do, with others joining me.

Unity will happen, one way or another. Jesus prayed it so. And He is God, the One Who sits on the throne.

I took the leadership, got three other founders/leaders of one local church and two ministries to come along, and started the year-long work in preparation for it.


After checking out the website, I hope you personally will seriously consider coming along with your involvement, and most importantly getting the word out. Not for my sake, but because this is on the Lord’s heart.

If ever there was a time for believers in local ministries and churches to get together, it is now. Why have we waited so long?

It is a new year. It is a new decade. The dark is getting darker. We need to shine together more as the Body of Christ, so the world knows Jesus is alive. He is desiring their lives, and we, as the Church, need to represent Him so they know Him, too. Will you be a part?

Please see the whole page with the 11 speakers, bios, time and location.


Also, I released another book, this one entitled, The Lion of Judah Roars: His Name is Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.

We are living in the times when our God continues to reign. And even though we may ask, “Where are You, God?” at some occasions, we can walk in the faith that He is working to perform His perfect will and plans for America and the nations. As you watch the news remember that He knows all, and is actively involved. Please support this ministry and buy a book. Thanks!

Laurie and I bless you in this new year, in Jesus’ Name. May He guide you in all your ways, direct your steps, and give you the adventures you so desire, with the courage, grace, and provision to see them fulfilled in your life. Sooner than later!

Ahava and shalom,

Love For His People ministry – moving forward into our 10th year with you. For them.

As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the ministry Love For His People in April 2010, to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, including our own USA, we have been called, as the prophetic word in 2004 was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.” Steve & Laurie Martin, Co-Founders


2020 Gathering Together Event
Friday, Saturday, April 3-4, 2020
Charlotte, NC area
2 days. 12 speakers. 2 worship teams.

For several years there has been a strong desire among some to pull churches and ministries in this local area, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Fort Mill, South Carolina together.

In 2003 the Lord initially put it on my heart to ask several ministries with similar connections to somehow, someway, work together in areas where they could, to bring the Lord’s Body together in unity. Only one replied, writing back, “It will never happen.”

It is not about big names, big churches or big ministries. It is about being the Body of Christ, together, as Jesus Himself prayed in John 17. We believe His prayer will get answered – one way or another. That one and only response back then, almost 17 years later, must change. It is still on the Lord’s heart, and now in an even greater measure.

The Lord again spoke in October 2018 that it was time to once again attempt to bring local churches and ministries together, if even for a day or two. Now is the time for all types, many walks, from several churches and ministries, to come together. Now is the time that the world may see one Body of Christ, believers in Jesus (Yeshua), be as one, if even for two days.

Can I get a witness? There will be One New Man, one Body of Christ, all believers walking and serving in His plans and purposes. We pray it will happen in our cities here. We truly hope so.

On the website page, you can see those who are committed to making a go of it, who comprise the leadership team for the event, followed by those who will also be ministering. We are bringing together male, female, Jew, Gentile, black, white, and all in between, in this Charlotte, NC and Rock Hill, SC region.

Check it out. And mark your calendars now. Gathering together in Jesus’ Name!

The Lion of Judah Roars by Steve Martin

“Thus says the LORD, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.’ Zechariah 8:1

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, promised before He left earth the first time, from Jerusalem, Israel, that when He returns the second time it also will be to Jerusalem, the city that has His Name written on it. He is not returning to New York City, Moscow, Beijing, London, Paris, nor Chicago. He is returning, as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, to Jerusalem, the Golden City, the Holy City, the City of Truth.

The Lion of Judah is coming back, to rule and reign over the nations, setting up His kingdom, made up of Jews and Gentiles that have acknowledged His Kingship and know Him as their Redeemer, the Savior of their soul.

The following chapters speak of the life that we can live in the here and now, as we await His return. We are not looking for the “escape out of this hell”, raptured away before the Great Tribulation as we have been so badly taught since the late 1890s. Jesus Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, is seated on His heavenly throne, but His soon return will be made known.

Now is the time for us to see what He is doing, how He is doing it, and “get on board” as Bob Dylan sang in the 70s. We are working while there is still day, to accomplish His plan and purposes for our life and the nation He has placed us in now.

Anticipate, prepare, be about the Father’s business, even as Jesus did. That is what we are called to do. And then we will see the Lion of Judah ROAR!

On its release, the Kindle version made the Amazon #1 list for NEW Israel Travel Guides!
