"O let us praise Him, friends." - Love For His People newsletter, Steve Martin
Aug 15, 2019
Greetings to you, our friends of Love For His People ministry.
It is a bit late for me to be up this evening. My, my. It is almost 10:00 pm! I normally try to get to bed by 8:30 pm, so I can get up at 3:30 am and spent that time with the Lord until out the door to work at 6.
Try it some time. The time with the Lord, I mean. It will change your life, as you put Jesus first, where He should be. With so many things grabbing our attention, how best can you live when you place the One who made you on the throne of your life. O praise His Name!
With our eyes wide open and our ears attuned to that around us, it doesn't take much to see that our land, and the nations, are in trouble. What does one expect when for decades we declare, "No God" in schools and media, and then see the results.
We must praise His name!
With the USA elections becoming ever more upfront and in our face, and as turbulence rages even more so in the towns and cities unsuspecting, I encourage you to do as I do, and praise His Name.
Jesus said, "If I be lifted up, I WILL draw all men unto Me." All men. That is the good, the bad, and the ugly. I think we'd best heed His words and do that. First in our life, and then among others.
The last three listed will all be in Fort Mill, South Carolina at Antioch International Church. Check for more details with those links provided.
I will be jetting off to Israel September 24 -Oct. 4, 2019 with three other men. We are calling it the "Four Louis Brothers Ahava Adventure". (Want to know why??!!) You can email me if you want to go on the next "only for men" adventure next October 2020. (Sorry, ladies, the Lord and I have our reasons! Gotta shape some men up!
Be encouraged in all that He puts your hands to do. We have the God Who is revealing Himself to us as we seek Him.
Ahava and shalom,

P.S. Join us Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, for our next Strength For Israelat Antioch International Church in the main auditorium - The Barn. We will have Hadassah Lerner from Jerusalem speak.
“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself." John 12:32, NASU
Speaking of His soon approaching death on the wooden cross, Jesus (Yeshua) told His disciples that when He was lifted up, this would be the main catalyst that would then draw all men to Himself.
When Jesus was lifted up, He drew all people to Himself.
In a recent Sunday worship time, before the speaker came to the podium, the beautiful song being sung wonderfully proclaimed Jesus. As the congregation focused in on praising His Name, I could really sense the move of the Holy Spirit drawing those focused on Jesus, and bringing them into a greater realm of the spirit. Jesus was being lifted up in our midst. He was drawing the people even closer to Him.
We weren’t focused on our needs. We weren’t singing, “Bless me. Bless mine.” Or, “Woe is me. Help me. Take care of me.”
We were singing Jesus.
Over 7 years ago now I led a worship team at a local Highway to Zion assembly here in Charlotte, North Carolina, headed by founder Cathy Hargett. We sang several Messianic songs, written by Messianic Jews, and a few written by popular Christian worship leaders. Present in the meeting was a Messianic Jewish leader from Israel, one very prominent in the movement taking place among believers in the Land of His people.
Be encouraged in your daily walk with God, for when it is all said and done, our God wins!God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and God the Holy Spirit - the Three in One - rule from their heavenly throne. Together they are daily involved in the lives of men, women, and children in all the nations.
The establishment of their kingdom here on earth is taking place. And one day Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, will set up His earthly throne in Jerusalem, Israel, the place where He left from in 33 AD, promising to return to that same place.
Knowing the last chapter recorded in the end of the Book, the Word of God, the Bible, as revealed to John the Apostle, we know that from the beginning in Genesis, to that ending chapter in Revelation, the Lord has been preparing His people and bringing about His plans and purposes.Both believing Jews and Gentiles are seeing His work and getting involved.
These messages are to encourage you, included among them I trust, in your walk with the Living God of Israel.
