I am reflecting on the last 25 years as I read through the emails:
In 1990, I was becoming addicted to crack cocaine while running four restaurants in Portland, Oregon. I married Michele in 1991 We gave birth to two children but raised four. Our son was born in 1989 our daughter, 1992 We both had two children from previous relationships. A son born in 1986 and a daughter born in 1988
Drug addiction is a tool used by hell itself to distort who we are. Many of us learn how to live distorted. The reality of crack cocaine or any drug addiction is not a reality at all but a consequence of being separated from our Creator. Reality is being connected to the God of Israel. Seeing those twisting in this lie breaks my heart. The drug addiction lasted 7 years. God delivered me over night. I have never used drugs of any kind since that day including cigarettes. If you are struggling with this lie.....get help. The lie is so compelling that you need others to help pull you out of what you are doing. Life renews when you make this choice. This is the truth that the lie does not want you to know.
Back in the late 90's I was a car accident that should have killed me. Shortly thereafter, I lived through a two week long headache [Migraine from hell, 1999] that turned out to be an aneurysm that should have left me brain dead or dead altogether. By the year 2000 I knew my marriage to Michele was over. In 2008 I sold my plumbing/drain cleaning company [The restaurants were gone by 1994] I turned back to the God of Christianity in 1998.
In 2007 my God showed to me that he was actually the God of Israel. Towards the end of 2009 Michele moved out and I moved to Tacoma, Washington to study with El Shaddai Ministries The divorce was final in August 2010. ABBA allowed everything that I had to be taken away from me. However, since 2007 I have never lived sick...I found the cure. He is YHWH the Elohim of Israel. I live with anticipation that all is being restored just as is promised. Now you understand what this re-marriage represents to both Michele and I. It tickles me when Michele says, "Learning the Hebraic understanding of God's word makes knowing him so much easier than what I learned in the church!" I have yet to hear another Christians say otherwise.
One day in late 2011, I was shaving. I watched the razor slide up and over a lump in my throat. Stage four cancer was diagnosed. Many of you walked with me through that painful mess. I am still recovering and as yet have not had my voice fully returned. My face, on the right side feels prickly with a constant pain, and numbness. My lip no longer works on the right side of my face and I can no longer drink from straws. Joyfully, thankfully, what God has asked of me continues........
About 4 months ago a woman at El Shaddai Ministries came up to me and asked for the names of my kids and my former wife. She was on her way to Israel and said, "God wants me to place these names into the Wailing Wall" Her name is Darlene, she is an intercessor among a group of ladies at our congregation. She continued, "Abba is restoring to you what has been taken from you"
On July 22nd [ a couple of days ago] I remarried Michele. At one point, a rainbow appeared over the sky outside of Myer's Road Baptist Church. I don't know how, I know this but, I know that ABBA placed the sign of the "Covenant of the Bow" above Michele and I to declare his blessing over our marriage.
I am thrilled to be obedient to all that he has placed in my path and will continue to encourage fellow Christians to "Return to the Beginning."
To not understand Israel is to not understand the Living Word of our Elohim. God has flooded my life with people. He knows how much I love people. I truly love what he is doing to reclaim his number one creation...that would be us! He is doing all of this through Israel and a particular prophet that He raised up.
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.
My life with Michele is a testament to all that is possible when we "Return to the Beginning."
Adding the Hebraic understanding of the Holy Scriptures illuminates the light already turned on via Israel. I will spend the rest of my life encouraging fellow Christians to Return to the Beginning. It will take what God has shown you through the Gospel and connect 98% of the Holy Scriptures to your biblical understanding that we simply are not taught on Sunday. You will salute the Jewish people who continue to die in order to do all that God commands.
For those of you who would say, "The Jews killed Jesus or we need to convert them to Christianity your ignorance to the WORD is truly, Biblical just as is those who cannot see the Messiah throughout the Holy Scriptures. Only haShem knows why this veil remains but, it is lifting.
Isaiah 25:7 He will destroy in this mountain the surface of the covering that covers all peoples, and the veil that is spread over all nations.
With the Love of Yeshua the Messiah of Israel, Shalom
Isaiah 46:9-10 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me; Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
