Love For His People - moving forward in our 9th year with you. For them.

July 11, 2018

Charlotte, North Carolina

Dear friends of Love For His People,

Just over a year ago - Saturday, July 1, 2017 - was a very special day for me.

Seven years ago on June 30, 2010, I had left the third ministry I had worked for in the past 24 years (this one was Vision for Israel with Barry and Batya Segal, after 14 years at Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda Ministries/All Nations Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, and eight years total at Derek Prince Ministries (Ft. Lauderdale and Charlotte), finishing with the last five at VFI. (Some years I split the 40 hour work week between two of them if you are a numbers person counting the years.)

The complete reason in departing my service at VFI was to start a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie and I. We called it Love For His People (officially formed in April 2010 with our USA non-profit, 501(c)3 approval) - primarily to bless the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers, those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.

As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization/ministry to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael - the Land of Israel - in this world of nations that continually becomes more anti-Semitic daily. We have been called, as the prophetic word in 2002 was spoken, as a "scepter for Israel."

 With both Laurie and I saved and called to be man and woman in the Lord Jesus Christ, our heart's desire is to do our part in speaking up for those who, for centuries, experienced nothing more than "hate" in the "name of Christ", from so-called Christians. That included Adolf Hitler himself, who used Martin Luther's last completely inerrant days, of non-Scriptural theology, to espouse Replacement Theology. This totally wrong belief that the "church" had replaced Israel as the one receiving the promises of the God of Israel. Today, it continues to be totally inaccurate, both historically and spiritually.

Thus, with these seven years now completed since the start of Love For His People (seven being "completion" in the Lord's number listing), it is similar to the seven ones that King Solomon took to complete the first Jewish Temple on the Mount (in Jerusalem, ISRAEL) centuries ago. As it states in the Torah, "he was seven years in building it." (1 Kings 6:38).

As a side note, this fact alone is proof enough that ALL of Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. The Jews had been given, and on many occasions even bought, the land of Israel they have now returned too.

We now begin our 9th year with the ministry of Love For His People, Inc

Israel, of course, continues to be the main objective in our support, but we also will be standing with those others who join alongside us in helping Jews make aliyah (return to Israel), speak out for the nation, and appreciate their Jewish roots as believers in Jesus (Yeshua).

We ask you to join us in our continuing efforts.

This ministry, with no staff or paid contractors, sends monthly funds to families in Jerusalem. For some of these, it has been for over seven years now. Consistently. Each month.

Our daily blog Love For His People also features my messages Now Think On This, which then are posted to our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. These messages are then printed into books (15 as of this date) on various encouraging and uplifting subjects.
Our Love For His People blog regularly shares Messianic news posted by Israel Today, with Aviel Schneider, Russ Jones, and team. Other news and prophetic ministry outlets, CharismaNews, CBN News Jerusalem, Breaking Israel News, Israel365, The Elijah List, are reposted to give you the truth, current events and relevant articles to help you grow in spirit, soul, and body.

Israel Today Editor - Aviel Schneider (Jerusalem, May 2013)

Our YouTube channel (Steve Martin) has over 1100 videos (several dozens recorded by myself in Israel over 16 trips) with over 940 subscribers; Twitter accounts, including (Steve Martin@Martinlighthous) have tweets that have gone out more than 55K at this point in time.

"He Saddled His Donkey" ✡ Donations Matched for a New Ambulance to Save Lives - ISRAEL365

And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he saddled his donkey … and went to the place of which God had told him.

GENESIS (22:3)

וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר וַיַּחֲבשׁ אֶת חֲמֹרוֹ... וַיֵּלֶךְ אֶל הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אָמַר לוֹ הָאֱ-לֹהִים

בראשית כב:ג

va-yash-kaym av-ra-ham ba-bo-ker va-ya-kha-vosh et kha-mo-ro ... va-yay-lekh el ha-ma-kom a-sher a-mar lo ha-e-lo-heem

Today's Israel Inspiration

We learn an invaluable life lesson from just one Hebrew word in today's verse - awoke earlyוַיַּשְׁכֵּם. Abraham was zealous to do God’s will at the first sign of daybreak, teaching that we too should grab opportunities to do good without hesitation. Fast forward 3,000 years and meet  ZAKA volunteers who follow in Abraham's footsteps. ZAKA is Israel's incredible volunteer terrorism and disaster emergency response organization. Volunteers remain on call every hour of the day ready to rush to any tragic scene to save lives. With the increase in terror, ZAKA is in dire need of 5 new ambulances to carry out their sacred mission throughout Israel. No matter where you live in the world, you can partner with ZAKA for the benefit of mankind. Help save lives, strengthen faith, and strengthen Israel.

Israeli Traffic Behind an Ambulance Gets Interesting

What happens when Israelis are stuck in traffic behind an ambulance at the scene of a tragedy? You must watch their reactions!

As Deaths in Israel Rise from Wave of Terror, Search & Rescue Ambulances Needed

Typically, ZAKA volunteers deal with an average of 30 incidents of unnatural deaths every week. But with the current wave of terror, ZAKA is being swamped with a dramatic increase of incidences throughout Israel.

This Elijah Cup is a wooden Kiddush Cup filled with wine for the Prophet Elijah during the Passover Seder. Yair Emanuel is a well known Israeli artist famous for his depictions of the Jerusalem's Old City. This cup features an impressive Jerusalem skyline image.

Yesterday's Photo Trivia

Yesterday's photo featured the Tower of David (in Hebrew, מגדל דוד, Migdal David), an ancient citadel located near the Jaffa Gate at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Despite its name, the tower has no connection to King David, but rather dates back to the Ottoman empire.

Thank You

"Israel Support for the Household of the Faith" - Ahava Love Letter (Steve Martin)

“Israel Support for the Household of Faith” 

 “So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.” Gal. 6:10 NASU

Dear family of friends,

Since the founding of Love For His People, Inc. was established in the spring of 2010, our main focus and effort has been to bless the people of Israel, in both practical and spiritual ways. We have been called to be ones who stand for the Lord’s purposes in His Promised Land. Our voice, spoken through written social media and public events, has daily proclaimed that.

Having been to Israel 10 times since 1988, our connections in Eretz Yisrael (the land of Israel) have been strengthened, especially with Jewish believers. Friendships have been built. Encouraging them face to face continues. With our annual Ahava Adventures fall trips to Jerusalem and the cities beyond, we can see the Lord Yeshua’s (Jesus’) will being accomplished, first hand.

Several of you have been to Israel. Many more would love to go. My prayer is that your heart’s desire, which the Lord Himself placed within yours, will come about. And when you go, I want you to meet these whom we love. So you can too.

When the nations increasingly turn their backs on the people of Israel, we proclaim that our stand for them and their families remains stronger than ever. As we push forward in proclaiming the eternal purposes of the Lord Yeshua for His Land, our strength and encouragement He gives through us grows daily. We know what His Word says. We are committed to standing on that solid ground.

Please consider sharing a portion of your regular giving also to the work of Love For His People. The monthly financial support of four families in Israel through this ministry has been ongoing these first three years of our existence. One family of six (with another on the way!) receives a $200 a month gift from this ministry. Another work there received $100 monthly to help supply lunch food for school kids in the poverty districts. We know others who could and should be blessed with yours and our support.

Love For His People does not have a paid staff. Those who do the work you have seen on the social media have secular jobs to fund what has thus far been accomplished. We ask you to be a part of sowing into this good field. It is a good work.

There are many ways you can send your contribution today. They are listed below.

Thank you. Eternity will know of your heart’s love for His people, and even today.

Ahava to my family of friends,

Steve Martin

India - Help for Flood Victims through Lighthouse Center India


Pastor John Ebenezer of Lighthouse Center India

From: John Ebenezer <>Sent: Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:00 AM
Subject: Re: FLOODS

My Dear Partner Friends,

Praise the Lord, today I walked back to Dehradun and I have seen the very worst scenes which I have not seen in my life time. (Editor's note: John is over 70 years).

There are so many dead bodies which are floating in the water. No trace of many thousands of people. By the grace of GOD I have given some biscuits, bed sheets and towels, small food and water, given one bottle to each, but I could not reach all due to very small I have little money.

From my state there are 2,376 people who were on the pilgrimage and only 23 arrived. The rest all died. Still all the relatives are asking us in many ways where are they, but I have no answer. I just tell them to have peace of mind, for the love GOD will make all things for all people. The only way is Jesus Christ.

I am going to stay for a few more days so I can able to help the few people. Since I know the language, by the grace of GOD, I am able to speak with suffering people and slowly bring them to safer place. It's very heard to explain how it has happened. These people are blind  because of their worship of dead gods. I feel it's one way to know living GOD Jesus Christ.

Even today there are thousands of dead bodies floating on the waters. It takes a few weeks just to get it all cleaned. Even today they broadcast three more days of rain will come.

Please pray for us and the families who have lost their loved ones.Many people are searching for their loved ones and families too. Last night we prayed for five member group. Praise GOD they are all  saved and  received  the Lord Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. All praise to HIM only. 

Tonight we also have seen one small room asking people to join with us for food and then we are going to worship the Lord after the dinner. May GOD bring many souls to night. Please join with us in prayers, by this we need any kind of support to help those who are still suffering. We need any kind of support to live. Please pray what I need my GOD will provide in time of need.


I look up to Him> He will answer of my prayers and  NEEDS. Praise HIM ....Amen.

Servant of GOD,
John Ebenezer
