They will know too. Their heritage. Steve Martin, Love For His People Ministry

Aug. 5, 2022 Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

Greetings to my family and friends of Love For His People Ministry.

We all love adventures, and with the summer winding down, I hope you enjoyed one recently with family and friends before school and the fall season begins.

This morning, as I was reading an article from Joel Rosenberg’s news site out of Jerusalem, All Israel News (AIN), I was really, I mean really, blessed to see a feature that I have had on my heart from the Lord Yeshua for years. I will tease you here. (

You have to read my message below, “They will know too. It’s their heritage.”

And after that, watch the videos. As you know, another “Walk With Me” is here now for thee!

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin, Founder, Love For His People Ministry

P.S. Lathan Wood, a dear friend whom the Lord connected years ago, is seeing his flock, The Movement (check out the link), “expand the pegs of their tent” into Gastonia, NC. We pray the Lord will bring all the provision they need as this new bishop in his community steps out in faith along with those joining him. Go, Lathan!

They will know too. It’s their heritage. Steve Martin

“Now when the queen of Sheba heard about the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to test him with difficult questions. So she came to Jerusalem with a very large retinue, with camels carrying spices and very much gold and precious stones.” 1 Kings 10:1-2, NASU 

Seeing the article in the Aug. 4, 2022, edition of All Israel News (published by Joel Rosenberg out of Israel) really caught my eye. Entitled “New collaboration takes Black American Christians to Israel to explore minority life” and written by Maayan Hoffman (I know Maayan!) (see Black Americans in Israel), it again reaffirmed in my heart that which the Lord is and will further do in the African-American community. Connect them with their heritage – Israel. 

When the Queen of Sheba came to see King Solomon, she was coming from Africa. Most likely Ethiopian. And yes, she was black. A black queen who had heard of this wealthy and full of wisdom Israel king, and came to pay him homage, and see if what she heard was true.

And this will happen more and more in our time. The Africans and the African Americans will further catch the vision which the Lord God of Israel has for them. They will realize their King reigns in Jerusalem, and He, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, will be a fulfillment of all their hopes and dreams. Only He can. And He will.

How the Lord connects people always amazes me. In 1999 a Native American by the name of Little Big Eagle walked into the Friday night, 10 pm – 6 am gathering of the Watch of the Lord which we held at All Nations Church off Westinghouse Street in Charlotte. Seeing him come in, dressed in his usual garb as he does, I walked over and greeted him. He thought it was a gathering of nations – Native American nations. In a sense, it was, as we all were lifting the Name of Jesus, Lord of the nations, above all the nations.

From that point, and years later down the road, Eagle, as we called him, introduced me to Lathan Wood, a young, vibrate, full of Holy Ghost giftings and charisma, who was founding a budding church in Rock Hill, SC. It was called The Movement, filled with young, black millennials.

In 2018, after Lathan had asked me to be on his church board, I gave him a check for $100 to put in his “Israel fund”. He said, “We don’t have an Israel fund.” I said, “You do now.”

From decades gone far back, the Lord had given me a heart for the black community, and I had a few that I called my friends. One played the drums on our Ahava Love Band. Others played softball on our New Covenant Church team in East Lansing, Michigan in the 1980s which I managed. Being together in His purposes and plans is always a good thing.

It is the Lord’s heart to connect the black community with their heritage – to bless Israel. Even as Queen Sheba led the way out of eastern Africa to pursue the king of Israel, and bring him gifts and wonders, they too in our day will receive the impartation to bless the Living King of Israel, Yeshua Himself.

In Oct. 2019 Lathan Wood came with me and two others on an Ahava Adventure, a part of Love For His People Ministry, to the Land of Israel. (My book on Amazon has the story! An Ahava Adventure) I believe the Lord gave him further impartation and authority from which he in turn, now a bishop in the church community, will further connect those under his care and oversight to a very spiritual heritage that they are to be built on.

The Lord God of Israel is moving in the black community. And when they fully grasp the shofars, the Hebrew language, the heart and importance of loving the Jewish people as their Creator does, in the Land from which the Savior was born on this planet, I say, “Watch out world!” Their influence will be beyond measure among their people and those who will join with them.

Ahava and shalom,

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Ahava (Love) Moments With You – Steve Martin and David Peterman 

We have a big announcement! David Peterman and I are available to come and minister to your home group, church, or Messianic synagogue to share what we have found in our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) and now walk out in faith – a love for Israel, the Jews, and believers. We speak from our hearts and experiences based on biblical disciplines, with foundational Jewish roots, and continuing onward through to the end of the Book in Revelation, to strengthen the One New Man in Yeshua.

David and I have known each other through fellowship for over 10 years and have walked closely in both natural and spiritual events and moments. Through working together in building a house, traveling to Israel, having home groups, Shabbat meetings, and other gathering locations in the Carolinas, the Lord has bonded us together, and now we sense the timing of the Lord to expand our tents to help establish others even more

Over the past four months, we have also been recording our new video series Ahava (Love) Moments With You, shared on the Love For His People YouTube channel and other social platforms. These messages help bring encouragement, inspiration, insight, and further understanding of the ways of the Lord.

We look forward to hearing from you if you would like to invite us to come.

Contact us at either Steve Martin ( or David Peterman ( Further details will be shared as we hear from you.

I love recording and sharing my Walk With Me video series. Here is a most recent one on our adventure to Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC, as Laurie fulfilled a Christmas present promise to our grandson Levi. Come on, walk with me! Check it out! Steve Martin WATCH HERE:

Here is my latest book. SALE PRICES! Click here: Encouragement! Paperback, Kindle, and now HARDBACK!
Encouragement – first from Jerusalem, Israel, and then from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA by Steve Martin (published May 25, 2022) In April 2022 my good friend David Peterman of Lancaster, South Carolina, and I took an Ahava Adventure (“love” in Hebrew) back to Jerusalem as soon as the skies and the Land of Israel opened up again. During those 10 days the Lord Yeshua, Jesus Christ, gave me words to share, which I wrote down each day to share with others. These make up the first part of this book.

The next section is comprised of messages inspired by the Holy Spirit from our home in Charlotte, North Carolina, beginning before and after the Israel trip. As the Lord would give me a prophetic word, I would start writing and He would further expand on it. Thus those words are written in the major section of this book.

Everyone needs encouragement. Every day. All the negative news spewed out from social media platforms and airwaves needs to be offset by the good news the Lord Jesus (Yeshua) brings to us. From the time He walked the streets of Jerusalem in the first century, to today in this 21st Century, He shares love from heaven and from this home in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Until He returns soon, may these messages uplift your spirit, reveal more of His heart, and sustain you as you walk daily in the direction the Holy Spirit gives with the grace and provision that comes with His presence.

Steve Martin
