Today I share from my heart about the season that is upon us…
 
 Happy New Year! You may be wondering what I mean by this because the calendar that most of us use shows we are in the first week of October 2011; however, the Jewish calendar reveals something else! The Hebraic New Year 5772 has just begun! Even as I write this we are in the midst of the Jewish celebration called The Ten Days of Awe. These are High Holy Days which Jews set apart for solemn reflection, repentance of heart and joyful hope which conclude on the holiest of day of Yom Kippur – The Day of Atonement. This is something much deeper than a time to make resolutions. “Resolutions” cannot bring about hope-filled redemption! In recent years I’ve noticed the Father’s heart move within the times and traditions of the Hebraic calendar, so I’m learning to pay closer attention to God-breathed holidays and feasts. (This website has a lot of helpful information: http://www.jewfaq.org/toctimes.htm)
 
The Father reveals Himself in different ways: As seasonal changes can be seen in the natural, so too can spiritual changes. For example, a person will exhibit new ways of speaking and treating others when they have truly repented of a life of sin and accepted salvation bought by Jesus the Messiah at Calvary. It’s like they have come out of the dormancy of winter and blossomed in spring! Something the Lord showed me awhile back is that at any given time in all areas of life we are in one of three stations: in preparation, in battle, or at rest. Wisdom is knowing which one we are in at any given point in time! Obviously we wouldn’t want to rush into battle when we are supposed to be preparing or resting – as well when we are in battle we first need to have rested up and gotten prepared in order to be victorious.
 
THE MISSION! Much of this year I’ve been at the Lord’s feet resting and earnestly seeking His direction. Today I write to share a vision so that together we may prepare for a coming mission. What I believe I’m seeing is a trip that will involve several destinations – including both Western and Eastern Europe, and at least three nations in Africa (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Uganda). In every nation visited I believe that many will be restored to the Father’s love and this will involve spiritual, emotional and physical healing as well. I sense that as we step out in faith together, the Lord will bring everything into focus at its perfect time and make all needed connections. He has been faithful to do this for every other mission trip He’s sent me on, and I trust completely He will again. 
 
The priests who carried the Ark across the Jordan River come to mind: They had to step out in faith and touch the water’s edge before the river ceased to flow – and all while it was in flood stage!!! This is how the Israelites entered the Promised Land! (See Joshua 3:14-17. Full story: Chapters 3 and 4) Given the day and hour in which we live, I sense an urgency to be prepared for more than just calamity. May wisdom prevail! It is not a time to shrink back; I believe it is time to prepare to advance the Good News of the kingdom of heaven like never before. This is what the Lord has called us to do as a Church. It is time to make a leap of faith and bring the impartation and edification of the Father’s Love to leaders and their congregations. If you believe you are to help send me on this mission quest, you may give online by credit card through PayPal atwww.thefathersloveim.org or by check or money order to:

MISSION ISRAEL 2011!
 
My trip to Israel was profound in so many ways; it is difficult to know where to start!  The Father absolutely opened every door that needed to be opened, provided for every need – even to the point of being extravagant in His love. I am so grateful to Him for His “pouring out” over me.  Because of the nature of the days we live in, much of what took place has to be kept sealed. I pray you understand. There is a day that the Father will allow it to be revealed, but it is not today.
 
This entire trip was an intensely blessed time where the Lord spoke directly into my life. The only word for the Church the Lord gave me during my time in Israel was what I sent you last week called, “Come Away from the Ledge of Despair.” This word directly speaks into end-time scenarios that are producing fear that is not from the heart of our Father. “God has not given us a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound and well-balanced mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) It is my prayer that we make peace be our umpire; may it rule and reign in our hearts!
 
Some of you took the opportunity to sow into the lives of my hosts in Jerusalem; those gifts were greatly appreciated. This precious couple generously housed me and extended an invitation to share in their Seder Feast. This is something my heart has longed for since I surrendered my life to Jesus! The Seder Feast or Pesach is known by Christians as the Last Supper. It is the Passover Feast (also known as the Feast of Unleavened Bread) and is what the Lord shared with His disciples just prior to His death on the Cross. (See Matthew 26) It was an amazing experience and a gift from God that I do not take lightly. All of the symbolism that Jews have practiced for centuries during these Holy Days, point to Jesus as the Passover Lamb and Messiah. It is my sincere hope that they will turn, look and behold their King! 
 
As I wrote you prior to the Lord sending me on this trip, the ministry is in dire need of a computer. Mine was working very slowly before the trip and this voyage was very taxing on it. I will be doing a great deal of writing in the days to come and working with photos taken, so your gifts sown toward a computer are genuinely and deeply appreciated!

While in Israel, I took this photo of the Eastern Wall.  Right as I got there the sun came out from behind the cloud.  All creation testifies to the glory of God!
