B'resheet 18:14 "Is anything too hard for ADONAI?"
Please! Please! Pray for those in the Community that refuse to take part in the vision and expressed goals that the Leadership has been given by HaShem. Let us all keep clearly in mind that this is not religion, but rather lifestyle. May HaShem touch the lives of those who are not embracing these truths, and may the Ruach Elohim convict them as such.
Please pray that the vision given 14yrs ago to begin a Messianic Jewish Congregation in West Michigan, will be adhered to by the Board and the constituency.
Please keep the graduates in prayer for wisdom in future decisions.
Please keep Mary Sue in prayer for physical healing from cancer
Please keep the Marriages at TOL and our extended families intact and spiritually strong
Keep those in prayer who have chosen to separate from the Community
Pray for the parents/guardians of child run households to assume family leadership responsibility
While it is not our intention to make or even suggest political agenda statements concerning our President and his proposals for Mideast peace, Scripture provides the source of our responsibilities in such cases whether we agree or disagree with him. Romans 13:1~2 states: "Everyone is to obey the governing authorities. For there is no authority that is not from God, and the existing authorities have been placed where they are by G-d. Therefore, whoever resists the authorities is resisting what God has instituted; and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves."
Our task then is to pray that G-d will surround our President and his advisors with godly men and women who will enable him to make godly decisions for this nation and its influence on other nations. We stand with Yisra'el and pray for her governing authorities in the same way. Tehillim (Psalms) 121 states: "1 A song of ascents: If I raise my eyes to the hills, from where will my help come? 2 My help comes from ADONAI, the maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip -your guardian is not asleep. 4 No, the guardian of Isra'el never slumbers or sleeps. 5 ADONAI is your guardian; at your right hand ADONAI provides you with shade 6 the sun can't strike you during the day or even the moon at night. 7 ADONAI will guard you against all harm; he will guard your life. 8 ADONAI will guard your coming and going from now on and forever."
"For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Isra'el after those days," says ADONAI: "I will put my Torah within them and write it on their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 No longer will any of them teach his fellow community member or his brother, 'Know ADONAI'; for all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest; because I will forgive their wickednesses and remember their sins no more." 35 This is what ADONAI says, who gives the sun as light for the day, who ordained the laws for the moon and stars to provide light for the night, who stirs up the sea until its waves roar -- ADONAI-Tzva'ot is his name: 36 "If these laws leave my presence," says ADONAI, "then the offspring of Isra'el will stop being a nation in my presence forever." 37 This is what ADONAI says: "If the sky above can be measured and the foundations of the earth be fathomed, then I will reject all the offspring of Isra'el for all that they have done," says ADONAI.
