Stand firm in your faith or you will not stand at all! – Richard and Carolyn Hyde from Heart of G-d Ministries

Dear friends and prayer partners,

We hope and pray that you’ve been growing beautifully in Messiah during this season of lockdown. The L-rd showed me that this was just a test run for what’s coming. We and many friends who follow Yeshua found this to be an incredibly rich season of pressing into the L-rd like never before, proving again that G-d can use anything for His glory. So ultimately Bill Gates and George Soros are NOT in control of everything but G-d alone is and sometimes, beyond our understanding, He allows Job Chapter 1 encounters to occur in our lives.

For many pre-believers the lock-down was an unprecedented season of fear and uncertainty. One evening while prayer-walking in our village, we ran into a dear neighbor who shared what he’s been hearing from his friends.

Y said we are at the “sof ha olam – the end of the world” and many Israelis believe that Messiah is coming soon. I always gently correct people who say this because Messiah is not just coming soon but He is returning soon – there’s a difference. Then I ask him that when Yeshua returns, will Israelis look up at Yeshua and exclaim in shock, “What – You’re the Messiah? I was expecting someone else!” Y laughed, but a bit nervously and then followed us to our home to visit more. This was one of the first times he really paid attention so please pray for this precious soul! 

Another evening I ran into a young American Jew who got stuck at a guesthouse in our village when the flights ceased. He’d planned to be an Orthodox rabbi but recently decided to be secular. When I asked him why, he explained about his search for G-d. So I was able to share with him about my faith journey. He was intrigued and really respected that I still keep Shabbat and the Leviticus 23 Feasts. He also completely understood that if I didn’t share Messiah with him, I would not be following one of the basic tenants of my faith – to make disciples of all men. We had a brilliant conversation and I’m so grateful for other divine appointments that the L-rd has brought since the lock-down ended.

Through many encounters with shopkeepers in town, with whom I’ve been sharing for years, I was pleased to hear how many understand there is something sinister lurking behind all this flu season. Conspiracy theories and fear abound but truth is scarce so it’s been a privilege to speak of the Hope we find in the Tanach, the Old Testament. My challenge to them is to ask G-d to reveal to Himself in a dream or vision and I truly believe that He will respond when they do!

A Testimony from the Media TeamStand firm in your faith or you will not stand at all!

Does the Bible speak of a dual covenant where Gentiles are saved by Yeshua, Jesus, while Jews are saved by Moses (John 14:6)? Is it right or wrong to share the message of salvation through Yeshua with Jews in Israel (Romans 1:16)? These questions have caused quite a stir since the release of Shelanu TV, the Israeli cable channel that proclaims the Gospel from a Messianic Jewish perspective. Of course many Orthodox Jews have protested but now some Christian leaders are also requesting the removal of this station.

Yet this station is sharing Messiah in Hebrew in a sensitive way and most of their content comes from local Israeli believers, including our sons and the Media Team in HaifaAs we know Yeshua was also controversial when He walked this earth. Peter describes Him as a stumbling block to pre-believers, but G-d gave Him the title of Cornerstone to those who believe.

I understand the animosity that lingers between Jew and Gentile due to events throughout history. I grew up in an Orthodox synagogue, so if as a pre-believer I would have seen a program like Shelanu TV I would’ve also been greatly angered, but G-d had another chapter in my story.

A prophetic dream-vision that the L-rd gave about the coming harvest

Back in the studio with a new song from Psalm 91 played on Appalachian dulcimer and the Arabic oud!

When we consider all that must take place before the anti-Christ arrives, it seems clear that the stage is being set for the last days. But remember that Yeshua said that He is with us even till the end of the age. So may you enter into these last days focused on Yeshua with a holy fear of the King of Kings, sharing His message of love and hope with a daily increase in your faith!

Have a Holy Spirit-filled Shavuot / Pentecost season in Yeshua’s love,

Carolyn and
