The Smart One by Steve Martin

“Our Lord is great, his power is vast, his wisdom beyond all telling.” Psalm 147:5, Complete Jewish Bible

Often it has been said that the timing of the Lord is of utmost importance. Well, let me please confirm that. It is.

We have our understanding of the overall picture. It is finite.

God the Father has His understanding of the big picture. It is infinite.

He is God. We are not. So often, after it has all been said and done, I am so, so grateful for that. For indeed, our Father knows best.

As we mature in the Lord, we discover the wisdom of the Lord in all things. It is a true statement. “You can’t see the forest for the trees.” In other words, He sees it all. We don’t. Thus we need to let God be God and direct our steps accordingly, as He is the Wise One, the All-Knowing One, the One Who sits on the throne above. Our God is the Smart One.

Because He can see the big picture from where He is seated, we can entrust our lives into His hands. The more we do that, the better it goes for us. Sixty years in walking with the Lord has proven that in my life. How about you?

For those who have ever been to a sporting event or a band concert, and you happen to sit near the top row (because the seats are more affordable!) you can better see the overall picture because your perspective is higher than the ones sitting in the lower, front areas. When the NASCAR drivers are on the backstretch; when the Mercy Me contemporary Christian band starts to walk on stage to begin the night of worship and joy; when the Phantom in the opera sings from the top stairs and you see him before others do…(these are a few of my favorite things.)



Perspective is a big deal. Remember when you were a kid and you thought you knew it all? (Maybe you are a big kid now and you still do!) But when you had kids of your own, you had hopefully learned a bit in the decades that followed, enabling you to train them up in the way they should go.

So, it is with our Lord Yeshua and His Father, through the outworking of Holy Spirit. They know it all. Three Persons in One. What a team!

When you get frustrated because you think you should have already been “there” and you are actually “here” on the journey; or when you believe the Lord missed it a year or two ago, or a decade, and now you think you are behind and missed so much – just remember – the timing of the Lord is everything. He knows it all, and you can trust Him that your life, the path He has placed you on, the location He has you right now, is all to get you to the fulfillment of His placement and purpose He has along had for you, along with all those who are also part of His Body.

He gives us in Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in Adonai with all your heart; do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him; then he will level your paths. Don’t be conceited about your own wisdom; but fear Adonai, and turn from evil. This will bring health to your body and give strength to your bones.” Complete Jewish Bible

Have faith in God. He is the Smart One.


Love For His People ministry with Steve and Laurie Martin in Charlotte, North Carolina USA


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. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, including our own USA, we have been called, as the prophetic word was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.” Ministering for 10 years now!

With the reminder already written in the Connection Greeting above, please click on the links given. With this on the Lord’s heart for unity, I hope it starts and continues with us. We need to be about His business, not about our individual agendas.

Just last week this NEW upcoming event here in the Charlotte, North Carolina/Rock Hill, South Carolina region began to unfold, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Briefly, after a dream shared by Carolyn Hyde in Israel, with amazing images about North Carolina, four of us, David Peterman, David Lauka, Mordecahi Porter and Steve Martin made a 2.5-hour journey to attend an aliyah meeting hosted by Tim & Nancy Buck, Focus on the End Times ministry.

That further got our attention that our Lord was pressing us onward in our support of Jews making aliyah (immigration) from America to Israel. And the realization was understood – sooner rather than later.

If you support Israel, and the Jews, you need to come to this gathering too. Get informed.

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!
