In Israel – Preparing for Shiloh University’s February 2018 Israel Tour

I am now in Jerusalem, eagerly completing preparations for Shiloh University’s February 2018 Israel Tour. This second study tour by Shiloh University will include participants from our prophetic communities in Mount Zion, Niterói, Brazil, and Shiloh, Kalona, Iowa, along with members of Austin Cathedral in Texas, which is pastored by my dear friends Bill and Sue Hart.

Our faith and anticipation is for a meeting with the Lord and a deepening revelation of the Jewish roots of our faith. Join with me in prayer that our love relationship with Israel and the Jewish people will bear fruit. We stand firm, knowing God will fulfill His Word over Israel.

 

Shabbat Shuvah — He Treads Our Iniquity Under Foot

This evening I brought a message titled “Shabbat Shuvah — He Treads Our Iniquity Under Foot” at a celebration of Shabbat Shuvah at Rayen Resort in North Hills, California.

This special Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur only comes once a year and the focus of this night is repentance. Hosea 14:2-9, Joel 2:15-27, and Micah 7:18-20 are beautiful passages which Jews read on this night every year. They speak of returning to the Lord and saying, “Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously.” In these verses, God responds to Israel and speaks of His jealousy and love for them, and talks about how they will be satisfied and will never be put to shame. Micah writes that He will tread our iniquities under foot. Yes, You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

This is the night in which we see all our sins being tread under God’s foot and cast into the sea of forgetfulness, never to be remembered again. Whatever you are dealing with, make this a night like never before and walk away from your iniquity. Forget it, knowing He has dealt with it.
