Still Small Voice – New Year’s Eve, Tishri 1. 5783

Shalom Shalom dear friends:

In 5783 “ALL WILL BE REVEALED” … this is the prophetic meaning of this new year.  See the end of the letter for more details.

What time is it? High powered men warn us of an event today! Our God who sits in the heavens laughs. The end of the “times of the gentiles” is here. Father is bringing Israel front and center onto the world stage. Do you see Him in action through His people? If not stay with us!

“Therefore says the LORD God, now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob and have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and I will be jealous for my holy name. They will forget their shame and all the treachery they have practiced against me when they dwell safely in their land with none to make them afraid. When I have brought them back from the people and gathered them from their enemies lands, and through them have vindicated my holiness in the sight of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God because I sent them into exile among the nations and then assembled them into their own land. I will leave none of them remaining among the nations anymore. And I will not hide my face anymore from them, when I pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel declares the Lord.”

Ezekiel 39: 25-29

Pause and think of that Selah! This is what Father God is doing. I believe we will face a terrible war before this completely unfolds.

ALIYAH: Ingathering of the Jewish exiles: Record 60,000 Jews move to Israel this Jewish year. “Israel absorbed 60,000 new immigrants over the past Jewish year 5782 and expects to reach 64,000 by the end of the secular year 2022, this Friday. 

That’s more immigrants in one year than any year in the last two decades and close to a “130% increase compared to 2021, when 28,500 Jews immigrated to the country.“ – Maayan Hoffman | September 20, 2022

News Flash: Putin is calling up 300,000 more troops and Russians are fleeing Russia by air. They are going to Turkey as no visa is required. 

A Trumpet Call: We caught glimpses of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral during our extensive travels. I was so edified by the scriptures she chose for this momentous occasion. Apparently 4 billion people watched it live. The truth of God’s Word the was like a trumpet blast out into the earth shattering the darkness. If you get an opportunity to watch please do so. God’s Kingdom received the glory. Hallelujah!

The Province of Alberta: We flew over the beautiful snow capped Rockies to land in the Calgary, sprawling over the great grass lands of Alberta. We are now visiting my home province. It is huge in its magnificence bordered by the beautiful Rocky Mountains on the west and flat prairie lands on the east. Alberta along with the other prairie provinces was a bread basket to the world for generations. It is know for its oil, (which has been capped), wheat and cattle. The farmers here are under duress as they are in Holland. As long as I can remember Alberta has given 1 billion dollars a year to. Quebec. Yet Alberta has suffered terribly through COVID restrictions and the inordinate persecution of some of her pastors. Alberta is filled with Bible loving Christians and conservatives.

To my dear friends: Those of you who read Still Small Voice, to my joy, on this trip I have met many of you. Yet, to my amazement, you have not felt a desire to communicate back to me? I am curious and must ask why? How do I know you are even there?  Think of it? Perhaps loneliness is the one thing that is a constant to those who live among other cultures. That is what draws us close to Jesus. But there is nothing like a little milk of human kindness. Share it with others as well please.

Inheritance: is the theme of these High Holy Days, known as the Days of Awe. We are being observed from heaven and weighed in the balance. May we not be found wanting. Life is so very short, only what we do for God’s Kingdom will stand.

Inheritance is what you leave someone,

Legacy is what you have imparted.

God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and my cup: Ps 73: 26

My heritage is beautiful to me. Ps. 16: 2,5,6.

This video will give you some idea of the conflict we in Jerusalem face every single day. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” [A city that has had no peace since the days of King Solomon.] “They shall prosper who love her.”

Ps. 122:6

Blessings, Prosperity and Love. Meridel

God’s holy word will come to pass. Watch for it, in this very place.

“At the end of every seven years, at an appointed time, in the Festival of Sukkot [following] the year of Shemitah. When all Israel comes to appear before the Lord, your G‑d, in the place He will choose, you shall read this Torah before all Israel, in their ears. Assemble the people: the men, the women, the children.” 

Deuteronomy 31:10-12 

Every blessing from the Rawlings family to you and yours! Shannah Tova!

For your interest: In ancient Israel, every seventh year was a Shemitah or ‘sabbatical’ year. For an entire year, the nation’s economy came to a standstill as all farmers and agrarian workers abandoned their fields and flocked en masse to the study houses where for a full year they focused on their spiritual, rather than physical needs.

Now, at the onset of the eighth year (the first in the new seven-year cycle), the nation is ready to head back to the fields and orchards. But first, on the second day of the holiday of Sukkot, [Feast of Tabernacles] sixteen days into the new year, all used to gather in the Holy Temple for inspiration to tide them over for the next six years, most of whose time would be spent in business endeavors. Pray for your Jewish brothers and sisters in Israel, as they seek the Lord God of their Fathers in these times.

What are we to expect in these next seven years?
