Love For His People – Steve Martin Update Oct. 29, 2017

October 29, 2017
Greetings to you my friends from Love For His People here in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina.
This past week I wrote Now Think On This – “Multi-ALL“, and recorded corresponding Arms of Love video message of the same. I was amazed at the number who saw, read and heard it. We need a bit of wisdom, understanding, and practical love in all this mess around us, wouldn’t you agree? I believe I have some to speak – from that which lies under my gray hairs, and within my enlarging heart of His love.
Please read the messages shared from our Love For His People directors and friends from Jerusalem, Pakistan, and Nigeria. As the Lord expands our tents of influence, we know He is looking to connect His worldwide Body together for the plans and purposes He is revealing in our midst.
Above all, ahava and shalom to you this week! (My last days before “secular” retirement have finally come!)

Multi-All! – by Steve Martin
Being a light to the nations has to begin with how we join with each other – to be that which we have been called to be. Joining together black, white, Jew and Gentile, to be the Body of Messiah. Why else did the Creator choose to create all kinds that He has? And no wonder there are so many Chinese! The Lord Jesus loves them so much!
When it comes to doing the right thing, the churches in our nations better be taking the lead. You want racism dealt with? Better have a multi-racial gathering Sunday mornings in your church.
Want the Millennials to gain some wisdom, especially from the Golden Oldies (like me!)? Join together in church and small group gatherings.
Looking for a place that, wow! Even Jews, Gentiles, and anyone in between (is there such a one?) celebrate life? Use our synagogues and churches as a place that all can worship the Living God of Israel together. (And no, there is no other god above Him.)
I grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. Went to a parochial Catholic high school (Columbus High). Of the 1100 students from 9th-12th grade, there were many 15 black kids. Racial tension was often present, with the “West Side” and the “East Side”. But I was friends with at least half of them whom I personally knew. They were good kids.

Hadassah from Jerusalem
UP TO JERUSALEM!
The Word tells us that the Temple is a house of prayer for all people! Not just Jewish people. It speaks of a day when all the Nations will come up for Sukkot: “Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.” Zechariah 14:16
Years ago, many Christians understood what this passage is all about and began to come up to Jerusalem NOW to celebrate. This year, 47,000 Christians visited during the Feast.
The Jerusalem Parade is a highlight each year as Pilgrims, dressed in native costumes, armed with country flags and treats, march thru the city proclaiming their love and support of Israel and the Jewish people. We went to enjoy the parade with our grandchildren.

Multi-ALL! – Arms of Love
Video Message by Steve Martin
In order to fight the ungodly spirit of racism, the anti-Semitic overtures in many countries, and the young versus old culture that is blasted out from almost every front, believers need to be the ones to show it right, get it right, and do it right.
If you haven’t got a friend who doesn’t look like you, talk like you, eat like you, or speak like you, then maybe it is about time you get one. That is the Plan He has set forth. Hear and obey what He knows and has desired since the day His family revealed themselves to us, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Watch here: Multi-ALL!
Pastor Abel Oyewale, Abba Father Fellowship International
Nigeria, West Africa
“So now, go, I am sending you to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt (Exodus)
Eventually, the people of God (Israel) found themselves in Egypt according to God’s declaration. Of course, He had gone ahead to prepare them and provide for their unstoppable release.
He came down to sensitize and facilitate the unstoppable movement to the covenant Land.
He appointed, empowered and commissioned the Leader (Moses) for the unstoppable journey.
He raised up aides for Moses, fought all their battles and supplied all their needs on the road. Why? He was faithful to His covenant.
The few losses they encountered on the road came about during the periods of disobedience.
The presence of God in the lives of His people is indispensable but can be sustained by total obedience.

Our world needs saving. The nations are in much turmoil, rage, anger, and lawlessness. Just keep watching the news and it is obvious that times are changing, and it is not changing for the good. It is happening just as the prophets spoke; just as Jesus (Yeshua) Himself said in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 as to how it would come about.
The signs are all around us, forth-telling those exact events which would take place before the Lamb of God returns as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, is the Messiah of Jews and Gentiles, for all who call upon His name for salvation. All indications are that He is coming back soon. While time is yet with us, and there is light among the growing darkness, we must work with His Holy Spirit to spread the Good News.
This is the news of His salvation, which is available to any and all who come to Him, for freedom from sin, death, destruction and all evil. This salvation is found only in His saving Blood and through His sacrifice on the cross. He is so willing and loving to give His saving grace to all who call upon His Name. He alone is our salvation. His Name is SALVATION.

Multi-All! – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

“…and he made him a varicolored tunic.” (Genesis 37:3-4, NASU)

Talk about writing some good news! The Charlotte Observer (Charlotte, North Carolina) finally did it this morning on their Sunday, October 22, 2017 front page. I personally rarely read that newspaper by the way, with its anti-bent slant on most of the many things which I stand for in this life. But thanks Tim Funk. You did good.

What was the article about, filling almost a full page? How Elevation Church (Steven Furtick) is becoming more and more multi-racial, multi-cultural, and multi-generational. Multi-ALL!

Being a light to the nations has to begin with how we join with each other – to be that which we have been called to be. Joining together black, white, Jew and Gentile, to be the Body of Messiah. Why else did the Creator choose to create all kinds that He has? And no wonder there are so many Chinese! The Lord Jesus loves them so much!

When it comes to doing the right thing, the churches in our nations better be taking the lead. You want racism dealt with? Better have a multi-racial gathering Sunday mornings in your church.

Want the Millennials to gain some wisdom, especially from the Golden Oldies (like me!)? Join together in church and small group gatherings.

Looking for a place that, wow! Even Jews, Gentiles, and anyone in between (is there such a one?) celebrate life? Use our synagogues and churches as a place that all can worship the Living God of Israel together. (And no, there is no other god above Him.)

I grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. Went to a parochial Catholic high school (Columbus High). Of the 1100 students from 9th-12th grade, there were many 15 black kids. Racial tension was often present, with the “West Side” and the “East Side”. But I was friends with at least half of them whom I personally knew. They were good kids.

And then I married a German Lutheran 18-year old girl! (Her father’s name was Otto Unzicker. Loved him and still do. See you in heaven Otto!)
(Photo: Otto with his Bethlehem Bell painting after his trip to Israel in the late 1980’s.)

If we are going to be the answer to the racial tension in our cities, our schools, and even within many churches, believers have to take the lead and do what the Lord Jesus, Yeshua, commanded us to do. Love our neighbors as ourselves. And yes, my neighborhood neighbor next door is black. Single mother Tracey, her son Diesel and mom are originally from Atlanta. I have mowed their yard occasionally being she works two jobs.

Do we practice what we so often preach?

How about this photo above from 2013? The Ahava Love Band with Jew (Gid Anthony – guitar) black man (Ron Bowen – drums), the Islands! (Wane Daroux – bass guitar), keyboard and singers (Patty Paquette and Laurie Martin – white females) and then me. The old man!

In order to fight the ungodly spirit of racism, the anti-Semitic overtures in many countries, and the young versus old culture that is blasted out from almost every front, believers need to be the ones to show it right, get it right, and do it right.

If you haven’t got a friend who doesn’t look like you, talk like you, eat like you, or speak like you, then maybe it is about time you get one. That is the Plan He has set forth.

Got it?

Incredible – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

 

“Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts, and I will tell of Your greatness.” (Psalm 145:6, NASU)

When I look into the star-filled night sky, I know one thing. God did it. Incredible.

When a Monarch butterfly glides across the tips of the park flowers, I know this. God did it.

When I consider the heartbeat of a newborn babe, being lovingly held tightly by his young mother, I am amazed at the beautiful creation of the Lord. He is Incredible.

And when I see prophecy being fulfilled right before my eyes, having been written in the Bible over 2,000 years ago, that the Living God of Israel would return His chosen people the Jews, from all the nations, to their Promised Land after being exiled, I know I serve an incredible God. He is doing it as He promised. This too is most incredible.

“For on my holy mountain, the high mountain of Israel, I, God, the Master, tell you that the entire people of Israel will worship me. I’ll receive them there with open arms. I’ll demand your best gifts and offerings, all your holy sacrifices.

What’s more, I’ll receive you as the best kind of offerings when I bring you back from all the lands and countries in which you’ve been scattered. I’ll demonstrate in the eyes of the world that I am The Holy.

When I return you to the land of Israel, the land that I solemnly promised with upraised arm to give to your parents, you’ll realize that I am God.” (Ezekiel 20:40-42, THE MESSAGE)

The Jews are going home. They are making aliyah (immigrating) from each and every nation on this planet, just as their God and mine promised He would have them do in fulfillment of His eternal Word.

Yes, He is an Incredible God!

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).

“Salvation – My Lord & My God” – new book release from Steve Martin. Available now!

 

AVAILABLE NOW – PAPERBACK $7.95  Kindle e-book also.

Oct. 14, 2017

Greetings to all.

My latest book Salvation – My Lord & My God (#16) is available now in paperback (7.95) and Kindle ($2.99) through Amazon.

As I was writings these messages, the Lord kept impressing upon me the word “salvation”. When one studies the Hebrew meaning of the word, you will find that the name Yeshua means salvation.

Yeshua (Jesus) is our Salvation.

Thus the title of this book.

Following are a few of the contents. I hope you will help support the ministry of Love For His People, where all the income from the sales go, with your purchase of either the paperback ($7.95) or Kindle version.

Ahava and shalom!

INTRODUCTION

Our world needs saving. The nations are in much turmoil, rage, anger, and lawlessness. Just keep watching the news and it is obvious that times are changing, and it is not changing for the good. It is happening just as the prophets spoke; just as Jesus (Yeshua) Himself said in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 as to how it would come about.

The signs are all around us, forth-telling those exact events which would take place before the Lamb of God returns as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, is the Messiah of Jews and Gentiles, for all who call upon His name for salvation. He is coming back soon.

While time is yet with us, and there is light among the growing darkness, we must work with His Holy Spirit to spread the Good News. This is the news of His salvation, which is available to any and all who come to Him, for freedom from sin, death, destruction and all evil.

This salvation is found only in His saving Blood and through His sacrifice on the cross. He is so willing and loving to give His saving grace to all who call upon His Name.

He alone is our salvation. His Name is SALVATION.

DEDICATION

After dedicating the previous 16 books to dear family and friends, I want to dedicate this book to those who have joined with us in the ministry of Love For His People, Inc. over these first 7 years, since 2010 when the ministry was birthed.

I thank the several board members who have given encouragement, suggestions and input, as we began on young legs and moved ahead in the Lord’s guidance.

To those who have blazed the trail, as they say, in their own writing and publications, I thank and acknowledge them.

I give thanks to Hadassah and Nissim of Jerusalem, who for the last three times on our Israel trips have been so hospitable to us in their home. Hadassah also now shares her inspirations on our ministry website, and someday we will publish her book of writings!

Hadassah and Nissim, Jerusalem Israel

Nissim is a great cook (when he isn’t tied to the desk doing ministry accounting) and loves the Washington Redskins NFL football team.

And now, I want to speak highly of our new International Directors who have joined with us, by showing themselves foremost in blessing their own countries, and by also having the heart of the Lord Most High to bless Israel and His Chosen Ones.

Moses Julius

Moses Julius in Pakistan has done a tremendous work with his Shalom Today Ministry over the years, and we welcomed him on board when he joined us as the Director of Love For His People – Pakistan this summer of 2017. We love you Moses and your passion for Yeshua HaMashiach!

Pastor Abel and his wife Margaret

Just this month of October 2017, we welcomed Pastor Abel Oyewale of Nigeria as the Love For His People – Nigeria Director. As he continues to serve the people in his city through Abba Father Fellowship International, he will now also be the lead man on the ground to bring further messages of teaching and humanitarian assistant to the Nigerians. We bless you Abel, your family and those who serve with you!

In years to come, as further connections are brought forth in fulfillment of prophetic words spoken years ago to us, we welcome others across the nations, all the time giving utmost thanks, honor and glory to our Risen Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach.

Help Love For His People continue to send monthly funds to pastors and Israel-supporting ministries in international lands – with free teaching materials. Financial support for families in Jerusalem, Belfast, UK and Lahore, Pakistan continue monthly. We count on you. Even a gift of $5 helps!  Thank you.

Please donate online safely through our website. Click on the DONATE button found on the side columns. A USA tax-receipt will be provided for each online gift and check.

The Unexpected – Now Think On This by Steve Martin   

 

“Even if I pass through death-dark ravines, I will fear no disaster; for you are with me; your rod and staff reassure me.” (Psalm 23:4, Complete Jewish Bible)

Fear suddenly comes upon you. Your stomach churns as if you had just been punched in the gut. Panic wants to overtake you. Your head spins, looking for a quick solution to get you out of the mess you just found yourself in. What in the world are you going to do? Where can I run? Who can I call? What do you do?

You trust in the One whom you have trusted in thus far. You call on the Name of the Lord Jesus.

“For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

‘I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’ (Jeremiah 29:11-14, NASU)

You can believe that is true. God cannot lie.

When I woke up this morning I had just gotten a text message from a friend who is newlywed. (I keep my phone on silent when I go to bed. Smart thing to do. Derek Prince, the great Bible teacher whom I was honored to serve on his ministry staff for eight years, often said, “There are no emergencies in the kingdom of God.”) They got married in her country, went on a fantastic honeymoon in another country, but when they came back to cross over into his homeland to start their new life together, they were stopped at the border. The paperwork hadn’t been done as it was supposed to have been done. She couldn’t cross over.

They were then told it was going to take much legal paperwork, several months, and could cost thousands of dollars. Dollars they didn’t have. Bills they never dreamed of having to be paid on the road ahead. The unexpected had just happened.

How many times have we faced challenges and circumstances when the impossible was facing us, and we didn’t know where to turn, who to call, or what to do next. We seemed frozen with fear, which itself wanted to keep us there. But that is when we need to stand on His Word – that He never leaves us, never forsakes us, never lets the enemy have the final victory.

All of us have faced these situations. A traumatic car accident; a tragic turn of events; an impossible place in our life when it looks as if we have been forsaken, forgotten about, and left standing alone. That is where and when we need to stand on His Word.
“Even if I pass through death-dark ravines, I will fear no disaster; for you are with me; your rod and staff reassure me.” (Psalm 23:4)

When these times come, we need to know in our heart, our soul, our very being that the Lord Jesus, Yeshua, is faithful to see us through whatever comes our way. Even if death itself stands at the door and says he has got us now, we must be firm in our belief, that even then, eternity with our Lord awaits us on the other side.

Whatever you face today, this week, or this month, know that He is on your side. You will not fail, you will not fall, you will not be left standing alone. The Living God of Israel has promised to never leave you nor forsake you. He will see you through.

I told my friend that on the phone. It may be a tough road ahead, but the Bible is full of examples which have been given to us to show His faithfulness towards those who believe.

Be reassured in your faith. Stand strong. He is a BIG God, and we are His.

“For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.

Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you.” (2 Timothy 1:2-14, NASU)

Be at peace. For the Lord will always be your strong tower. You can run to Him and He will see you through.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
