“The Lion of Judah Roars: His Name is Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach” – book by Steve Martin

“The Lion of Judah Roars: His Name is Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach” – book by Steve Martin

Amazon paperback $12.95 Kindle $1.95
“Thus says the LORD, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.’ Zechariah 8:1
Our Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, promised before He left earth the first time, from Jerusalem, Israel, that when He returns the second time it also will be to Jerusalem, the city that has His Name written on it.
He is not returning to New York City, Moscow, Beijing, London, Paris, nor Chicago. He is returning, as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, to Jerusalem, the Golden City, the Holy City, the City of Truth.
The Lion of Judah is coming back, to rule and reign over the nations, setting up His kingdom, made up of Jews and Gentiles that have acknowledged His Kingship and know Him as their Redeemer, the Savior of their soul.
The following chapters speak of the life that we can live in the here and now, as we await His return. We are not looking for the “escape out of this hell”, raptured away before the Great Tribulation as we have been so badly taught since the late 1890s.
Jesus Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, is seated on His heavenly throne, but His soon return will be made known. Now is the time for us to see what He is doing, how He is doing it, and “get on board” as Bob Dylan sang in the 70s.
We are working while there is still day, to accomplish His plan and purposes for our life and the nation He has placed us in now.
Anticipate, prepare, be about the Father’s business, even as Jesus did. That is what we are called to do. And then we will see the Lion of Judah ROAR!

Praying Daily for the peace of Jerusalem & All of Israel!



Praying Daily for Jerusalem & All of Israel!

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 & Shalom,

"Holy Spirit" - Now Think On This by Steve Martin


Holy Spirit


“Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call." Acts 2:38-39, NKJV


Some know Him as the third Person of the Godhead, for He is. Others may know Him better as the Comforter, for He is that too. In fact, Jesus said that once He had ascended into heaven, He would send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. He did.
In some circles, He is known as Ruach HaKodesh, as so in the Hebrew language. (“Ruach” – Spirit, “Ha”- the, “Kodesh” – Holy.)
In the New American Standard version of the Bible, the Holy Spirit is spoken of 1,127 times. That may be surprising to many. Some think He quit His work on this planet after the first century. How sad is that? Especially if it was true.
We first read of Him in Genesis 1:2, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water.” (Complete Jewish Bible) 
Then a few verses later we read this in Gen 1:26-28, “Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (NKJV) The Trinity in action, in the very beginning. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
King David knew of the Holy Spirit, as recorded in Psalm 51:10-12, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.” (NKJV)

Yeshua (Jesus) promised this in John 14:25-26, “I have told you these things while I am still with you. But the Counselor, the Ruach HaKodesh, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything; that is, he will remind you of everything I have said to you.” (Complete Jewish Bible)
Throughout the Gospels, in the Acts of the Apostles (Messengers) and the Epistles, written primarily by Jews, the Holy Spirit continued to interact with mankind. He never would leave nor forsake.
Paul, formerly known as Saul, a Jew, both before and after he became a believer, was among the first to persecute the new believers in Yeshua. He was fully committed to doing so, and did quite extensively until he literally saw the light. Later he wrote this in his writings, speaking of the Holy Spirit’s continuing action in his life, and that of Timothy’s, his disciple, many years after Pentecost (Shavuot in Hebrew).
In 2 Timothy 1:13-14, Paul wrote to his spiritual son, “Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.” (NKJV)
The dwelling of God’s Spirit continued throughout their lives.
Even Jude, in his short book, wrote in verses 20-21, “But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God's love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life!” (THE MESSAGE)
Praying in the Holy Spirit was, and still is, a gift of the Holy Spirit. Some have long dismissed this to their own hurt, and thus lack spiritual power in their Christian walk today.
When Ruach HaKodesh fulfilled the promise of Yeshua (Jesus), in coming after Jesus’ ascension 50 days later on Pentecost (“Pente” - 50 in Greek) on the Lord’s Feast of Shavuot, He indeed empowered the previously fearful, carefully hidden away in the Upper Room. Those same 120 disciples (come with me to Israel and I will show you that location) were the ones who then changed the world through the mighty outworking of the Spirit in them.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a real thing. It is a much-needed experience in the life of the Church, the One New Man, to encounter the lies and deceit of the enemy we battle, and which the world glorifies. While satan the deceiver advances his agenda, it will be those walking, moving, and believing in the Almighty God, through the power of the Holy Spirit in them, who will be the ones putting up the fight to bring about the deliverance of souls, humans, for the Savior Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

By grace, I received the Holy Spirit’s baptism in my high school senior year, in 1973, even as a Roman Catholic. Since then, 46 years ago as of this writing, I have been praying in tongues, receiving prophetic words, seeing actual miracles of supernatural healing in “real” time, and knowing all the gifts of the Holy Spirit exist today. Because He does live and move daily in lives around the world, we are thus able to show what the world needs to know about and experience too.
If you walk with the Spirit of the Living God of Israel, Who energizes daily (for we all need Him), then great!
If not, then what are you waiting for? Ask. Seek. Knock. He will come. To you.
Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

Ahava and shalom,

All Nations - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

All Nations
Steve Martin

  
“All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name. For You are great, and do wondrous things; You alone are God.” (Psalm 86:9-10, NKJV)


If you consider the current status of the nations of the world, more than likely you would not say that they will ever magnify or acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the King of kings nor the Lord of lords. In fact, if you just for a moment think of those represented in the United Nations, your confidence that this will ever happen decreases even more. Very few nations, if even a handful, call upon the Name of the Lord at this present time. Personally, I might consider two at most. Guess which ones?

And yet…the Scriptures state in many verses that ALL NATIONS will one day come and worship the Living God, this One and Only Living God of Israel.

Consider this verse, written by one of the minor prophets of Israel, and yet very profound, a shepherd named Haggai.

“For thus says the Lord of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord of hosts.” (Haggai 2:6-8, NKJV)

All nations will be shaken. Then they shall come to the Desire of All Nations.

In the spring of 1994, my good wife Laurie and I were included as founding members of All Nations Church, at the time just getting established in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Those first ones were Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, Michael and Leslie Adams, Art and Ruth Maki, and a very nice lady many called Yoo-hoo, or sometimes Lois Hanks. She was the Chavda kids’ grandma nanny. They and all others called her Yoo-hoo because when entering a home she would announce her arrival with, “You Hoo”.

Later that summer the Chavdas and us moved our families to Charlotte, North Carolina, landing here ahead of two semi-loads hauling our belongings after the long 14-hour trip on July 4, 1994. The former 13 acres of Lamb’s Chapel property, now covered over by part of the huge development of Ballantyne in south Charlotte, including the once converted horse barn and all that became our church building, was the memorable scene of glorious nights, particularly with the weekly Friday all-night Watch of the Lord. (You can read much of these days in my book, The Promise – One Man’s Journey to See God’s Word Revealed, published in 2013.)

The church was so named All Nations because it was our belief that the Bible was true, and all people, from every tribe and tongue, would one day come to the Desire of All Nations, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.The Word of God is forever true, with Haggai 2:6-8 as the foundational Scripture.

Fast forward almost exactly 25 years. In a Sunday morning, March 2019 gathering of Antioch International Church, located on the former Heritage USA (PTL) property, once holding the ministry of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, Laurie and I, now members there, were part of the worship team as background vocals. (All Nations Church now resides just across the railroad tracks of that same property, which was part of Heritage USA, and once known as Fort Hope. I was still on staff there in 1999 as the Administrator when we purchased the 36-acres of good land.)

During one of the songs, as we were lifting up the name of Jesus, the Lord gave me a prophetic word. At the appropriate time, during an instrumental break, I loudly proclaimed that “All nations will come the Lord, for He is the King of kings and the Lord of lord. Even as the flags of the nations here wave above you (the near-ceiling walkway perimeter of the assembly room of The Barn is lined with a multitude of national flags from around the world) know that all nations will come and acknowledge Me as their Lord and King.”

As I later thought of it, to myself I wondered if all nations will indeed come. I searched the Scriptures later when I got home. It was confirmed in the written words of the Good Book, this will truly will happen. There will be those from each and every nation that will come and bow the knee to the King of Israel, ruling from the holy city of Jerusalem.

There is also a warning given in several verses in the same Scriptures. Those people of the nations which refuse to give the proper homage to our God and His Only Son will pay the price of their pride, ignorance, and obstinance.

“I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.

They have cast lots for My people,
Have given a boy as payment for a harlot,
And sold a girl for wine, that they may drink.”
(Joel 3:2-3, NKJV)

My heart cry, reflecting that of my Lord and Savior Jesus, is that each and everyone reading this message will choose now to be included with those, gathered from all nations, who call upon the Name of the Lord. Let all other names be called liars, but His Name, Adonai, Hashem, the Blessed Lord, be called the Name Above All Names, by all nations.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
