IF LOT WERE ALIVE TODAY
 

"For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,  putting them in chains of darkness  to be held for judgment;  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority." (2 Peter 2:4-10) 
 

If Lot were alive today, would not his soul be tormented?  Mine is. I am so grieved by the world around us and the depths of depravity to which human kind has fallen.  My flesh and my heart yearns, even faints, for our home of righteousness.  But we are told to wait.  God’s Word is very optimistic about the final act of human history.  Though at present it appears that a cloud of insanity is infiltrating our world systems, yet God is raising up his sons and daughters.  We are not to fret as this only leads to evil. As we focus on things above, God’s peace and confidence will rule in and over our hearts.  This is not the time to fear.  Yes, Scripture talks about the times in which we live and mentions the fruit of accumulative sin as being a depraved mind, yet there is hope.
 

"Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.  They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.  Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." (Romans 1:28-32)
 

We have the example in Scripture of King Nebuchadnezzar who was warned in a dream about the dangers of pride (Daniel 4). When he boasted of all that he had built, he lost his mind (became depraved) and began to live and look like an animal.  But God opened the eyes of his heart and he returned to his senses and repented.  He received a powerful revelation of the sovereignty of God and realized that all power came from him.  He understood that God does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth.  When Nebuchadnezzar acknowledged God, his sanity was restored.  He was also restored to his kingdom and his throne. So too the sanity of fallen man can be restored and be restored to his God-given destiny.  How will this take place?  In the same way that King Nebuchadnezzar received his deliverance: through repentance and acknowledgment of God.

 

I have been crying out for revival: for signs, for wonders and for miracles.  Surely if God broke through with visible proof of his presence then the lost and even prodigal children would see and believe.  Didn’t Yeshua say that if you cannot believe his words then believe on the basis of the miracles that he was doing?  “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves” (John 14:11).  But alas, miracles are not enough to change many hearts.  “Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him” (John 12:37). A hardness can creep into our hearts through pride and unrepentant sin.  This prevents us from hearing or perceiving the truth when God’s word is spoken.  Even visible and tangible manifestations of his power are not acknowledged.  As in the days preceding Yeshua’s ministry, so too today we need preachers anointed with the same Spirit as John the Baptist. We need to cry out for the Spirit of grace and supplication so there can be true repentance resulting in true humility. This is the kind of humility where when truth is revealed, there would be a surrender of obedience: “Be it unto me according to your word” (Luke 1:39).  May our hearts become soft so that when we see a “burning bush” we will stop and turn towards it in wonder.  May God’s truth be our life’s compass and not our feelings.  This is not the time to give up, but the time to press in to God until he comes and showers righteousness on mankind (Hosea 10:12).

A NEW SEASON OF TRAVEL
 
Just prior to our leaving Israel, Dan was a part of the Toward Jerusalem Council II elders’ meetings.  We have very important plans for meetings in Asia and Africa, and then a pre-council meeting in Jerusalem.   This is all to lead to seeing the churches world-wide aligned with Israel and the restored Messianic Jewish Community.  Do keep this effort in prayer. 
 
We have finally landed in the States and are beginning our winter season of travel. At the end of this itinerary we will have completed 19 years of being “circuit riders” traveling to the various Tikkun Congregations (25 now) under our care in the States.  We are so grateful for you who have followed our journey and have been faithful in keeping us in your prayers.  At present, we are at a convocation of apostolic leaders in Dallas receiving encouragement and strategy for partnering with God in establishing his kingdom on earth before he returns.  Dan was part of a panel on “Apostolic Theology.”  The International Coalition of Apostle’s meeting in Dallas is one of the greatest convocation of leaders of which we are a part.  We meet people who lead networks of thousands of churches from North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Europe.  It is a great opportunity to expose them to our books and to those of other Tikkun leaders and to connect them to our work in the Land of Israel.  The word of God breaking through and turning things around here is very optimistic. One of the leaders from Brazil gave an amazing report of unity and victory.
 
On Friday we return to Kansas, our home base in the States, for a couple of days and then we head out to minister at Rosh Pina in Baltimore, MD and then teach at the Tikkun Leadership Institute in Frederick.  You can follow our schedule on the left.  Thank you so much for your continued giving and prayer.  Your commitment to us makes our work possible, the trips to the nations and our work in the Land of Israel.
