Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

Today is a special Sabbath to me – Marilyn’s birthday! It is a perfect occasion to remember and honor this amazing woman of God and spiritual mother to so many worldwide.

Marilyn lived with an unwavering drive to serve the Lord. With the unselfish love of a spiritual mother, she travailed over each person with the expectation that we would become vessels of God’s Word. Every day she prayed the Lord’s prayer: Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. She was—and is—an example of unrelenting intercession. Throughout this travail, she expressed God’s love to all of us in a simple yet powerful way.

On her birthday today, we celebrate her faith by entering into the Sabbath rest and celebrating God’s presence. Thank you, Marilyn, for drawing us into a deeper relationship with our Father. We honor you by staying true to all that you imparted to us.

An Impartation From John Stevens’ Word

The Lord is speaking to my heart through this message, “Lonely? Run After Him!” God has one purpose in all the circumstances and experiences we go through: to draw us closer to Him, to get us to open our heart to Him more and more, and to teach us to trust Him and love Him. He is drawing us into the higher level He has prepared for us. In this message, John Stevens talks about how God, in His love for us, is constantly drawing us into a greater revelation and awareness of Him in everything we go through.

The impartation in John Stevens’ message opened up a meeting with the Lord that is deeply changing me and this fellowship. I talk about this personal experience in a message I brought this past Sunday titled “If You Love Me, You Will Rejoice.” I encourage you to hear both messages. Let us continue to seek the Lord with all our hearts, knowing that His purpose is to draw us into a greater oneness with Him.

Yom Kippur At The Western Wall

I just got back from Israel and I wanted to share with you this video I received of thousands of Jewish worshipers at the Western Wall, gathered to celebrate Yom Kippur. This video shows faithful Jewish people from many synagogues, all singing their prayer to God. I am moved by their oneness in observance of this holiest day of the year. Let us cry out to God with them, to see the Father’s continued atonement for His people in every corner of the world.
