The enemy will do everything he can to keep you from reading this email. Perhaps he already has. So please take time to read it carefully and prayerfully.
As many of you know, last month donations were much lower that usual and left us well under budget.
I have been praying and meditating on this issue as of late. I am also convinced and convicted (as many of you have told me that you do as well) that this ministry is in fact doing key work in YHWH's plan of restoration in these last days.
So why is our income low and our burden so great financially? I believe the answer is to be found in the Scriptures. Yeshua said:
A thief does not come, except to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy.
I have come that they might have life,
and they might have that which is abundant.
(Jn. 10:10 HRV)
There are two forces at work described in this verse. Messiah desires us to have life, and to have abundance, meanwhile the Enemy seeks to kill, steal and destroy.
It should be emphasized here that "Abundant Life" does not always mean monetary wealth, it can mean health, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, fulfilling marriage, personal or family relationships etc..
But my point here is that while Messiah desires to bless us, HaSatan wishes to steal these blessings from us.
If in fact this ministry is doing such key work in YHWH's plan of restoration in the last days, then it is no surprise that this ministry is also a prime target for HaSatan.
There is a war going on, and we are in the midst of that war. Paul writes:
"Your struggle is not with flesh and blood,
but with principalities and with authorities
and with the possessors of this dark world
and with the evil spirits that are under heaven."
(Eph. 6:12 HRV)
Do not let the principalities and authorities and the possessors of this dark world succeed. Stand with us in standing against the Enemy as we present the truth of Torah and the goodnews of Messiah to this lost world. As I have said to you many times, I look on this work as a co-operative one with me, and all of you combining our resources together in order to get the job done of helping to teach this great truth to all in the world who will listen.
Remember we depend on you to support this work with your contributions, tithes and offerings.
We are reaching a lost world with Torah and Messiah. Through our blogs, literature and podcasts we are also feeding young believers milk and mature believers with nice juicy steaks.
