Greetings to my family and friends of Love For His People Ministry from Jerusalem, Israel.

With the completion of the 4-day Aliyah Seminar here in the Golden City last night, I now turn my attention to additional personal connections, believing the Lord is setting these up for upcoming days (and years). The importance of this cannot be overstated. The time is now when we will need each other even more, as the Lord’s joining of Jews and Christians for His ultimate plans and purposes continues. For those who respond with, “I will. Use me,” He hears and makes the way before us.

Please read my new message from here in Jerusalem, Israel. (I like to always say “Israel” because that is what His Land is so named by Him. Not another name assigned by man.)

You can read my new message below: His Connections in Israel – Jerusalem, Israel Series

As for the Aliyah Seminar, hosted by founder Glen Haines of Operation Tarshish and his executive team, it was another one of those times when the Lord allows each to connect with others. Some you may not have even considered before, but years from now you will look back and know He was doing the joining. When His One New Man, Jew and Gentile believers in Him do as He directs, the wonders begin. And they are for eternity. The ones I met here and also in Jerusalem at the 2018 conference are among the top ones Love For His People Ministry now supports monthly.

As connections form, His Body grows.

It was my extreme joy to lead worship on three of the nights for the days of these meetings. The Lord makes a way to share the gifts He has given to us with one another.

Challenges abound for each of us. So far I have been able to upload on our YouTube channel 37 videos but have another 14 that I have been trying to do. I have to wait literally hours (I am not speaking evangelistically!) for a 3-4 minute video to get up there in the cloud for you to see. So please see them here: Steve Martin, Love For His People YouTube Channel.

I hope my joy in recording them comes across to you. The Land is good. The people are greater.I am most grateful to Nissim and Hadassah Lerner, His Lighthouse, Inc., who have given me a place in their ministry apartment and home to lodge for these 3 weeks in Jerusalem.

Ahava mucho gracious my good friends!

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem!


Ahava,

Steve Martin, Founder, Love For His People Ministry

His Connections in IsraelJerusalem, Israel Series   

“…we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:15-16, NASU  

Coming to Jerusalem, Israel, several times a year is for divinely appointed purposes – to continue to establish and build on the connections the Lord began bringing together over 35 years ago with me and this people, beginning with my staff positions on three international ministries touching the people of Israel. 

And thus, Love For His People Ministry, begun in 2010, is walking out these connections with the Ahava Adventures (“ahava” is Hebrew for love), bringing His love from His heart to ours and then into theirs, the Jewish and Arab people of Israel. I could not have asked for a better “job”. 

When it comes to loving people, it takes time, money, physical strength, and above all, the spiritual realization that this is the Lord’s doing, and yet He allows us to be involved with Him. And for me, that isn’t a job. It is an adventure and a great opportunity to fulfill that which He puts in our hearts, as we seek Him. God the Father has a plan. Yeshua, the Messiah, brought it to this Land of Israel in the continuing act of salvation, for Israel and the other nations who will see and believe.

As a believer in Him myself, as a Christian, a “goyim” or “Greek”, being a non-Jew, it amazes me to see Him bring it all together and use us to be a part of it. His mercy and love are bringing the chosen ones, the Jews, back to this land, as prophesied for centuries through His prophets. In our time it is happening. We get to be part of the plan. What a God He is and Whom we serve. 

During the chaos, in the midst of war, in the daily battles with everything the enemy of our souls throws at us, all around the world, our God is making it happen. To see His hand upon this land of Israel and these people whom He chose, beginning with the call of Abraham the Patriarch to go forth from that which he knew and come here, it is indeed a marvelous sight. Then to be scattered for centuries, and then brought back in restoration, it is a miracle. It is God. 

“Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you went. “I will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord,” declares the Lord God, “when I prove Myself holy among you in their sight. “For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land.

“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. “Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. “You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:22-29, NASU 

Being a part of the Operation Tarshish, Glen Haines Founder, Aliyah Seminar 2022 here in Jerusalem Oct. 31-Nov.3, 2022, was work, but it was what one knows is part of the fulfillment of the call on one’s life. And when each of us knows what that is, and chooses to walk in it, we cannot begin to imagine what the Lord has in store for us. The eternal connections made at this seminar are very important. Small in number, but even as the Lord Jesus (Yeshua) Himself had the few when His earthly mission was completed, these here will continue with all the others who are laboring and doing the awesome tasks to see the aliyah (immigrating of the Jews) back to this Land.

When Yeshua HaMashiach returns Himself as the rightful King of kings, to sit on His throne here in Jerusalem, all Israel will know who their God and King is. They will see it with their own eyes, right here. Yeshua is coming back to Jerusalem for His Bride, the One New Man of believers connected together, Jew and Gentile. His ongoing plan and purpose will be established. He is joining each to one another to get the job done. 

“Next I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. Sitting on it was the one called Faithful and True, and it is in righteousness that he passes judgment and goes to battle. His eyes were like a fiery flame, and on his head were many royal crowns. And he had a name written which no one knew but himself. He was wearing a robe that had been soaked in blood, and the name by which he is called is, “THE WORD OF GOD.” The armies of heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. And out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down nations — “He will rule them with a staff of iron.”

It is he who treads the winepress from which flows the wine of the furious rage of Adonai, God of heaven’s armies. And on his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelations 19:11-16, Complete Jewish Bible 

You too can commit yourself to that which He gives you to do. Know what your calling is, gather with like-minded believers, and do it. Fulfillment in life results. His life outworking through you brings it as you connect with others to get the job done. 

Ahava and shalom from Jerusalem, 
Steve Martin, Love For His People, Founder

Message #123 in this series – in the year of our Lord 11.04.2022 – “His Connections in Israel – Jerusalem series”  Friday, 10:58 am in Jerusalem, Israel


Please meet a friend now for over 6 years, Uri Shkalim, in this special “Walk With Me” video we recorded 2 nights ago. We didn’t actually plan to do this short one, but as I like doing spontaneous videos, I did give him a heads-up so as not to be too surprising. His shop is one of the best on Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem. My outerwear during the fall and winter attest to that. This is another way we support our friends in their Land and cities.
