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

Rest for the weary cometh. I believe that (and like to practice my Old English every so often.)

Be not weary with another email. This one is for you!

“Keep On Keeping On” follows below. And check out the Elvis video from Jerusalem!

Ahava and shalom. Happy Thanksgiving!

Keep on Keeping On 

“’He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.” Daniel 7:25, NASU 

The Word of God speaks to us from times past to show us what was then, is now, and what is to come. Even as the enemy of our soul continually seeks to stand against those who side with the Living God of Israel, we are most aware of his motives and schemes. The enemy of our very being will always seek to tear down the saints, the believers; those who are called and commissioned to join the battle and stand on the ramparts. We are aware of his tactics and stand strong against him, together. 

When I returned from my ahava (love) adventure to Israel on Nov. 12, 2022, I was a bit weary. No, in fact, I was just plain worn out. Having given all that I had to make full use of the three weeks I had been given for the days there, my body, soul, and spirit needed some rest.

But with relatives coming in a few days; my good friend still in the hospital going on six weeks (the one who was to have joined me on this trip for his first one to Israel) there just seemed to be no time to rest, and then another close prophetic friend was moving out of state and needed some help; a concert trip to bless my son on his birthday was the same week… 

All important, but at times the saying, “No rest for the weary,” holds true. Yeshua and the disciples knew the feeling, but they kept on keeping on. The days are short, and the night comes when no man can work. So we must keep on going. 

“The apostles then rendezvoused with Jesus and reported on all that they had done and taught. Jesus said, “Come off by yourselves; let’s take a break and get a little rest.” For there was constant coming and going. They didn’t even have time to eat. So they got in the boat and went off to a remote place by themselves. Someone saw them going and the word got around. From the surrounding towns people went out on foot, running, and got there ahead of them. When Jesus arrived, he saw this huge crowd. At the sight of them, his heart broke — like sheep with no shepherd they were. He went right to work teaching them.” Mark 6:30-34, THE MESSAGE

“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:4-5, NKJV 

Many times I have silently prayed the prayer, “My times are in Your hands, and when I am weak then You are strong.” It has kept me going at times when I would rather sleep in bed. 

We are living in those hours when it is fast approaching when no man will be able to work. So, we must be about our Father’s business when the day is light, and not give in to weariness and discouragement.

Governments will keep trying to shut down our travel (the “planned-demic” had been in place for years beforehand, based on truth accounts) and stifle our means of earthly support; leaders will say they have our back when it is only theirs that they care about.

How is it that so many “broke” men and women get into positions of power and then leave being millionaires after decades, or even just 8 years? 

These are times when we must rely on the Lord’s strength, His grace, His power, and provision, to complete the works He has set before us to do. Only by Him working through us will we be able to complete the glorious tasks we have been given to do while here. The Lord did not let Moses in the promised Land due to the mishandling of his commission. We must press on in complete obedience so we can complete ours. 

“At that same time, I begged God: “God, my Master, you let me in on the beginnings, you let me see your greatness, you let me see your might — what god in Heaven or Earth can do anything like what you’ve done! Please, let me in also on the endings, let me cross the river and see the good land over the Jordan, the lush hills, the Lebanon mountains.” Deuteronomy 3”23-25, THE MESSAGE 

Fulfilling the mission set before us will only get done if we keep our eyes on Jesus, call on His Name in the midst of battle and war, and keep our faith and trust fully in His ability to finish His eternal plans and purposes, using us in those plans and purposes. We too set our hearts like flint, as He Himself did. 

“For the Lord God helps Me, therefore, I am not disgraced; therefore, I have set My face like flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed. He who vindicates Me is near; who will contend with Me? Let us stand up to each other; who has a case against Me? Let him draw near to Me. Behold, the Lord God helps Me; who is he who condemns Me? Behold, they will all wear out like a garment; the moth will eat them. Who is among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of His servant, that walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.” Isaiah 50:7-10, NASU 

Carry on and do that which you too are to do. Get some rest as you can along the way. 

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

Message #165 in this series – in the year of our Lord 11.20.2022 – “Keep On Keeping On”  Sunday, 6:30 am in Charlotte, North Carolina


I did a bit of walking while in Israel this month. That may have added to the weariness, but it was still a joy to have walked in the Land where our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, walked all over! Come with me on this “Walk With Me” to go to the place where the Elvis American Cafe’ is, so I could add another annual mug to my collection. (I believe it makes it about 8 now.)

Walk in the Land where the King did. (And where Elvis may have longed to also.) Look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSvUg0T1rpA

Shalom, Steve Martin

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO by Steve Martin (published Nov. 14, 2022)

On Nov. 11, 2022, as I awaited the shuttle to the Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, I asked the Lord what the title of my 36th book should be. “Why We Do What We Do – We Live For the Lord” came the response from the Holy Spirit. So, I named it that. 

The morning after I got home on Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022, I opened the November/December 2022 issue of Charisma Magazine which my good wife Laurie had been reading on the kitchen table. I skimmed through the pages and noticed an article by Rod Parsley entitled, “Seek the Father’s Face, Hear His Voice”. I had known of Rod and his ministry, but not a regular listener. 

On page 57 of his article, the written paragraph header was, “His Voice in My Ear”. In the 4th paragraph, he wrote of the Lord asking Him this question, “Why do you do what you do?” Confirmation! Thus, I had heard the Lord also. 

This book contains the five months of messages I shared with subscribers to my weekly email, and then posted on our website www.loveforhispeople.com and other social media platforms. For each of us to accomplish the Lord’s will, plans, and purposes for our individual lives we must know what we are to do and do it. We will then understand the “why we do what we do” question, as we walk out His ways. 

Be inspired and encouraged as you read, either as a daily discipline or as a book with examples as to how to walk the Christian faith in your own life. And as you know the “why”, your courage, boldness, and firmer commitment to live for Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, will be evident to many. You may not even have to say a word. 

I have also included the six messages I wrote from Jerusalem, between Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2022 when I was there on my 26th journey to the Land. Since 2010 I have called these journeys “Ahava Adventures”. “Ahava” is love in Hebrew. 

Blessings on ye head. Ahava and Shalom, Steve Martin, Founder
