With God's help, we'll get through...
For Yeshua, our Passover lamb, has been
sacrificed. 1 Corinthians 5:7 NIV The special time, when according
to the Biblical calendar we celebrate the holiday of Unleavened Bread and the
Exodus from the house of slavery, I wish you health, success, and victories.
Let’s be honest, we are not living in simple easy times.
The whole world is focused on the situation between Ukraine
and Russia, we see how various spiritual forces both good and bad are active. Unfortunately, these days
Israel is being shaken by brutal terrorist attacks. In just three weeks, fourteen people were murdered by terrorists. Pain, anger,
disappointment... All this is our pre - Passover experience. I think many are
disappointed with the government's policy of not being able to solve internal
Speaking of news near home – at Return to Zion, three staff members of our Ministry are ill with Covid, as well as many others in the Congregation, which prompts me to ask for PRAYER.
Be that as it may, I think that all this is a
reaction to future changes. I believe that we are standing on the threshold of
a new wave of Aliya …For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors. “But now I
will send for many fishermen,” declares the Lord, “and they will catch them.
After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every
mountain and hill... Jeremiah 16:15-16 NIV
30 years ago, there was a big
Aliya - The return of Jews from the former USSR, everyone said it was the time of fishermen... And many believers (Who were like fishermen), traveled around the USSR and
asked/convinced people to go to the land of their fathers. Today, due to the war, in
Europe there are already 4.5 million refugees from Ukraine. 200-300 thousand of them have Jewish
blood and can AND SHOULD!!! come to Israel, we can see that many are already “running from the hunters”,
running from misfortune and death.
In order to receive so many
people, Israel must take measures by changing the internal logistics of
receiving these people. Congregations like ours also need to change direction.
In Shavei Zion - for many
years we encourage/ed people about Aliya (our name is Shavei Zion - to Return to Zion)`. But now, from the mode of
slow Aliya, we must enter the mode of intense mass Aliya.
This is what we are doing
now, updating our stock of “bedding”, “quilts”, “kitchen
utensils” etc... We are also gathering additional volunteers, and
we want to see how our people serve not only in physical assistance to others,
but also Shine with the Light of the Lord.
Therefore, I ask you to partner in this project with us..
Our goal in 2022 is to release for new Olim / refugees 50-100K dollars worth of any/all assistance…
In some way, all this reminds
of the Exodus from Egypt.. Pesach… And in this time we live, God
gave us to be born for these days and it is important to fulfill OUR ROLE in
His great plan.
I want to end with the words
of the Scriptures: And you will again see the distinction between the
righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not. Malachi 3:18 NIV
Serving God… walking in His perfect will... Hearing His Voice…
Blessings to you in Yeshua
