At the annual Subra family reunion (Everett Willard and Lucy Yarwood Subra family) on July 27, 2013 in Winona, Minnesota, grandson Kevin Subra (my cousin) shares some history of the family, beginning during the Civil War days with Stephen Subra. He then follows it through to days in Minnesota and onward.

Seven of the original nine children of Everett & Lucy were able to attend this year. Many of their children also, including myself from Charlotte, NC.

Firebrands In God's Hand

The enemy is about to hear from our children and grandchildren beginning this season. 

Watch and expect the passion for Christ to run wild like a raging fire inside of them. The Lord has allowed them to be placed in strategic locations in the earth and even in some unusual places where we might think they shouldn’t be. 

Even in prisons, homeless on the streets, or wherever they are being held in satan’s grip. 

They have now been divinely positioned to become a firebrand in God’s hand to ignite and explode like dynamite inside the camp of the enemy! This is why the enemy forever has fought against marriages. He feared concerning the Godly seed that was about to come upon the earth to do him in! 

And here they come! Genesis 22:17 ( Message Bible ) “Your descendants will defeat their enemies.”

If a coin was found in a fish's mouth, maybe there is a connection between our mouth and
our money. 

How many times have we said, "I'm broke, I'm sick, I'm catching a cold," and watched it come to pass? Little do we realize that when we open our mouth we are prophesying either good or bad! 

Why not say, "I have all the money I will ever need! I'm being attacked by healing! Healing runs in my family! I heard a saying once that even a fish would stay out of trouble if it learned to keep its mouth shut!

Subra Family Reunion in Winona, Minnesota - seven siblings and their children

Subra reunion in Winona, MN July 27, 2013

On July 27, 2013, the Subra family of Everett Willard Subra and Lucy J. Yarwood Subra (both have passed on) held their annual reunion in Winona, MN. Of the original nine siblings, seven were there. These were Doris, Violet, Lavonne, Lila (my Mom), Glen, Lorraine (the reunion host this year), and Loren.

Roger Subra has passed on (but his wife Marliyn, daughter Cheryl and son Jim were there) and Irene, the oldest, was unable to attend.

In this video, each sibling had their children, who were present with them, to come and stand with them for photo opportunities.

Hebrew words. With Pictures!

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem! - Ora por la paz en Jerusalem!

We pray daily for our friends in Jerusalem and all of Israel, whether "in season or out".

As believers in Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach), we lift up our brethren, as fathers in the faith.

The Jewish people have been, and are being used by the Lord (Adonai) to show His love and purposes for all people in all nations. We are wise to take heed.

I use the above pictured proclamation card in my daily prayer time, from Derek Prince Ministries.You can get a copy for your prayer time (in black and white), if you write to me using the address below.

Blessed are those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Blessed are those who bless the Jews, even as Scriptures states in Genesis 12: 3:

"I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed." (CJB - Complete Jewish Bible)

Our love for His people is constant, unchanging, and eternal.

We share His love with ongoing support for our Messianic friends in the Promised Land, Eretz Israel. We welcome all who will join us in expressing His love.

Ahava Love Letter (#63) - "Anxious"


My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my
enemies and from those who persecute me. Make Your face
to shine upon Your servant; Save me in Your lovingkindness.”
Psalm 31:15-16 NASU

Dear family of friends,

When I find myself in times of trouble…” Words from a popular song, even these many years after being recorded by Paul and his friends. I used to think he was talking about Mary, the birth mother of Yeshua (Jesus). I later learned it was about his own mother. I guess that was whom he turned to when he needed help, and I would think she provided some.

When you are anxious, who do you turn to? Yourself? A family member or friend? Your pet Fido? Your favorite glass of wine or the TV comedy show?

We all seek comfort in someone or something more often than not it seems these days. Just trying to relieve the stress of the daily grind on the job; having that financial lack, with more bills piling up; or the relationship that constantly churns away in our awaken and even nightly thoughts.

The words that I have learned to speak during these moments of anxiety are simply, “My times are in Your hands.” A simple prayer to the Lord (Adonai), asking for His intervention in what is troubling me at the moment. Whether I am in distress over the next mortgage payment or the situation at work for which I need better understanding, my heart cry often is to the Lord, saying My times are in Your hands.”

The singer Paul continues in his own words, “speaking words of wisdom, let it be, let it be.” Let it be what? Make it just go away?

Sometimes our stress release choice doesn’t hold up under the continuing load that befalls each of us. And then ruin comes, resulting in poor health, broken marriages, or lost time in doing anything worth the eternal value it could and should have.

Our faith, or as the Complete Jewish Bible puts it, our trust, must abide in that Person Whom has proven to give peace and security. If you want a Rock to stand on, I know of no other that has been shown stronger. Who can compare? None can compare.

We need not to just endure another day, and end up with wasted years. Our Creator has a good plan for each of us, and also a good path He will take us on, if we keep our eyes fixed on Him, and our faith in His purposes. 

As I daily speak His promise - that my steps are ordained by Him - my confidence grows. Especially as I see His hand guiding and leading me in the way I should go, and grow.

My trust in His provision also expands, as I see Him provide in unexpected ways. This builds on the expectations of His constant love and direction.

As I walk the enduring walk, I find myself not asking mother Mary to help, but speaking to Him Who alone gives us our heart’s desire, declaring “My times are in Your hand.” Thank you Jesus.

Learn to rest in His abiding peace. Give Him the opportunity to show Himself strong on your behalf, as you continually call upon His name. He will be there for you. Even today.

Ahava (love in Hebrew) to my family of friends,

Steve Martin
