Instead of attending regular church services March 1st, my husband and I stayed home to do an internet research project regarding the "current state of the church." We started our morning in prayer and then we began our church research project. We gathered a sample size by searching a list of churches located in around the NC/SC area of Horry County who offered on-line LIVE streaming services.
We documented what topic the Pastors were preaching on this very "important" Sunday morning. We wanted to assess if church organizations were praying for Israel and/or Nations Leaders or "connecting" current events such as the Prime Minister of Israel's visit to Washington, with Biblical Prophecy.
I felt like I was in a bad dream as we realized the fact that many churches are not understanding or connecting the seasons of the times. It appears the chronic condition of the post-modern church needs to re-open the veins that return the blood flow to its heart and let God re-OXYGENATE the blood or a fatal church heart attack with death as the outcome will be the prognosis.
Now is the time for Bible believing families to come together and STAND WITH ISRAEL AND WITH PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS. The church must REPENT and pray for Revival, Community, Heritage and the Future of America. The families spiritual, moral and ethical world view is critical to every aspect of life. Every family has Talents, Resource and Skills that can all be used to Glorify God out in the community. There are so many opportunities to get involved in Community and Fight for American Values but you must step "outside" the comfort of the four walls of the church to do it!
Pastor John Hagee Ministries has educated America through many TV appearances, books, and conferences. He has stated "There is a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way."
Pastor Hagee went on to state that he believes "The Four Blood Moon Cycles are seasons when we are going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world!"
"The sun and the moon and the Earth are controlled by God almighty," Hagee said. "He is the one that is getting them in a direct alignment on a certain day at a certain time -- but each time, it's a Passover or Sukkot.
Blood moons appeared April 2014, on Passover, and then again in October 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot.
The timing is the same for 2015 -- a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.
On March 3, 2015, the day before PURIM the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress on the catastrophic danger of a nuclear Iran. This was the most important speech of his life. Elle Wiesel, an 86 year old Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate attended. (Mr. Wiesel author of "NIGHT" a famed book that documented his horrific experiences in Nazi concentration camps.) Mr. Wiesel was featured in a full-page newspaper advertorial that ran in both the New York Times and the Washington Post, Reuters reported.and he has stated " I have seen the enemies of the Jewish people make good on threats to exterminate us, how can I remain silent?"
Besides the fact that Standing With Israel is a Biblical Mandate, the reason I am so passionate about Israel is best explained by my personal life experience as a Christian Mother. God tapped me on the shoulder twice. First, HE sent beautiful adopted twin souls-babies into my arms. Upon connecting and talking with their beautiful birth mother I found out they were both Jewish! This event turned our family into discovering the Jewish Roots of Christianity as we studied as best we could in preparation to teach our babies how to live a Jewish life!
This promise & goal opened an entire community of Jewish Rabbi's and special Jewish friends who teach us and guide us in our journey. As a Christian Health Provider who has taught Biblical Nutrition for the past 20 years, adding in the teachings of Kosher to our table was exciting and it elevated my spiritual approach to food to a even greater level!
In this process of re-arranging our lives for ministry work we learned to walk by faith as we gave up careers, sold homes, cars, furniture, as well as changed churches, friends, communities, states, and managed the lost income in order for Ken to "go back to fellowship status" of no income at Hershey Medical Center. Medical friends told us we were "crazy" to loose the income and safe job as an Anesthesiologist, however, as you probably might have guessed, our loss was given back to us above and beyond measure which we sowed back into Israel!
We lived, we listened, we trusted, and today, years later we see the entire picture of our ministry and medical practice. During the process we could only see one day at a time. Today we are positioned owning our own medical practice, which opens and closes based on our Mission Schedule, Jewish Feast Schedule and Ministry work!
Standing for biblical values is critical to family and community survival as well as the biblical mandate to Stand With Israel Persecuted Christians Globally.
