SOWING INTO A LEGACY

Patty: Through the grace of God, Dan and I have received a legacy from those who have gone before us, both from the natural children of Abraham and from our spiritual brothers and sisters in the international church. The Bible calls it an inheritance.  We highly value the contributions both of our ancient people and of the godly saints in the Church over the past 2000 years.  We have received blessing after blessing from the saints who have poured out their lives to extend the Kingdom of God both past and present.  The impartation of wisdom and experience from connecting to these saints through books and personal contact is incalculable.
 
Not only are we heirs of all that has gone before us, (‘And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed” Acts 3:25) but Yeshua, our Lord and Savior, looks at us as being his glorious inheritance: “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people” (Ephesians 1:18).  We endeavor to bring him a glorious inheritance through our lives linked with the great cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1).
 
An inheritance is often thought of as something of material value that is left behind after a person has passed.  What is inherited is something for which one has worked and given to another who hasn’t personally earned it.  However, a legacy, though similar to an inheritance, is something anyone can benefit from at any time, not just the designated inheritor after someone has died. Legacy, for the believer, is more about bequeathing values, learned experiences, a history of relationships and overcoming obstacles.  It is advancing the Kingdom of God rather than valuables, as material wealth is only a small fraction of our legacy.
 
You leave a good legacy to future generations when you are genuinely grounded in offering yourself to God and his purposes.  By this you are making a meaningful and lasting contribution to advancing the Kingdom of God on earth.  It is serving a greater cause than your own.  The requirements of a legacy are that you embrace your uniqueness as a child of God – there is only one you – passionately immersing your whole self into the life God has given you so that the gift of “you” will be available to all.  Only you can take up the responsibility to ensure that your life will make an impact on others that will outlast your time on earth and even have significance for eternity.
 
Dan speaking at the Wheaton College Chapel service, a fulfillment of a life long dream ... giving honor to the legacy given him from his many godly professors.  He will always be grateful for their impartation into his life.  Both Dan and Patty are graduates of Wheaton, in fact that is where they met :-)
Dan and I have sought, though not perfectly, to seek God and his Kingdom with all our heart and have hopefully left our children, children’s children (both natural and spiritual) and beyond, treasures outside a monetary value.  Many of you have connected in heart with Tikkun International and us for accomplishing the work that God has already done through us:
 
  • Stewarding the modern Messianic Jewish movement as one of the founding parents
  • Laying the foundational theology for the modern Messianic Jewish movement as one of the original leaders
  • Establishing a Messianic Jewish Day school that continued for thirty years
  • Promoting Kingdom congregational governmental order in the body of believers
  • Maintaining covenant relationships for more than 38 years
  • Leading the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations; being instrumental in laying foundations in this great move of God
  • Yielding to the Holy Spirit’s manifest works in the face of skepticism
  • Teaching and leading out in effectual intercession
  • Promoting five-fold ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Leading a network of Tikkun Congregations for the past 30 years and serving, at present, over twenty congregations and ministries
  • Teaching hundreds of hours of biblical courses through various Bible schools, seminaries. discipleship schools and churches
  • Connecting to the international Church and faithfully building relationships with leaders, promoting the unity of Jew and Gentile and proper alignment
  • Raising up leaders who have been sent all over the world
  • Supporting and sending and serving the men and women we sent to Israel who have been faithful with the vision God has given them
  • Working towards reconciliation of the Church and Messianic Jewish believers through the venue of Towards Jerusalem Council II
  • Writing many foundational books to equip and to inform both the Church and Messianic leaders
  • Mentoring, equipping and releasing the next generation both in the States and in Israel
  • Serving the ministries in Israel, helping to establish a restored apostolic movement to welcome back the return of the Messiah
That connection has supported God’s work done in us and our family yielding:
  • An amazing love worked out in a marriage of almost 45 years
  • Children and grandchildren who are living in Israel and are passionately following God
  • A legacy of dependence on God and sacrifice of what’s allowable to do and what’s beneficial
  • A legacy of perseverance, endurance, and intentionality with Holy Spirit led vision
  • A legacy of an ongoing faithfulness to God and his Kingdom
 
Above all, we pray that we will leave a legacy of finishing well, of living a life of ministering to the Lord and others motivated by love. We desire for these aspects of Kingdom legacy that God has birthed through us to last well beyond the day when we have passed on from this life to be with Him in eternity.  Thank you for being used of God to help build this legacy together.  Your prayers and financial contributions over the years have expanded our capability to reach out in God’s love all over the world.  Moreover, you have contributed to the lasting legacy that will also bear your name, for we are certain that you share our eternal reward.
 
We now serve under the ministry name of “Restoration From Zion” and ask that you consider giving to this ministry as part of your end of the year charitable donations and your continued support in the coming year.  Most of all, we covet your prayers.  Your faithfulness has been such a part in furthering the fruitfulness of this ministry.

Have a blessed Holiday Season and New Year, dear friends and supporters!
 

In Messiah's Love,
Dan and Patty
