Still Small Voice – Feast of Feast of Tabernacles. 14 Tishri 2783. Oct/12/22

Dear Friends who are praying for us:

When I have brought them back from the peoples 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 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 God.”

Ezekiel 30:27-29

We have begun almost every service with my reading these incredible promises over the Jewish people. I ask our audiences “Have you seen the face of the LORD?”  Let us keep humble hearts when it come to Israel and the Jew.

Jay tells of our time inside the Kremlin in 1989 when he had to stand against the ire of head of Jewish Emigration. He amazes people with is experience of “A soft answer turning away wrath.” YES, inside the Kremlin. For the full story you will have to get our next book to released, Israel our Odyssey. Times are not so different today, it is all heating up again. Jay asks. “Can Putin stop Aliyah?”

“NO!” Is always the united response.

Our God reigns, and it is written 64 times in the Bible that Father will bring His sons and daughters home to Israel. Aliyah  is a hot topic again today, 2022, and will be ever more so in the days ahead. Open your eyes to see this global move of God’s mighty Spirit! Canadians are listening. Jay challenges our audiences to make their own personal Aliyah toward the LORD and MOVE FORWARD!

Howard Flower heading up the ICEJ Aliyah in St Petersburg writes: “The only winner in this conflict is Israel. Praise God, The LORD has sent you, Meridel and Jay out at such a time as this …” Howard is presently enjoying the Christian Celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem.

Some 6,500 Russians arrived in Israel since Vladimir Putin called-up army reservists. Israel expects the number of new immigrants from Russia to continue climbing. As a result, Israel is sponsoring camps in Finland and Azerbaijan, to contain Russian Jews. Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in Jerusalem at Israel’s weekly Cabinet meeting: “… following recent events in Russia and Ukraine, we expect tens of thousands of olim (new immigrants) in the coming months. We are preparing for their arrival and welcome them.”

Time to celebrate:

The Feast of Tabernacles the fulfillment of one of Messiah’s names – Immanuel, God With Us!  Here in Canada we have had the joy of celebrating Thanksgiving and the biblical Feast with believers in many locations. It has been glorious. We have also renewed old acquaintances and made many new ones along the way.

Tabernacles is my favourite Feast. In Israel,  we build a succah and family and friends come to us over the next 8 days to feast and fellowship. We are most of all mindful of the heavenly guests who also hover near. All over the walls of the succah curtains are written the names of our heroes, Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David and of course we include Yeshua! To Read about it in scripture: See Leviticus 22:26-23:44. Numbers 29:12-16. Zechariah 14:1-21

The metropolis of Toronto:

This famous Canadian metropolis is graced by Friends of Jesus Christ. Filippino/Canadians make us proud for their standard of excellence is seen in their service to others. Pastor Tek Wy always welcomes us so warmly as does his wife Myrna and fellowship. He has loaned to us  his van for our journey around the Province of Ontario. We are enjoying autumn with its glorious fall colors: red, orange, scarlet, and burgundy leaves shine in the sunshine among the tall ever greens. I have spoken with new immigrants from Yemen, Jordan, Iraq, Pakistan, and Punjab India. Many of them are nervous when asked where they are from.  As I spoke with the shy Yemenite women, I wondered what they saw ad endured during the war? Or the Pakistanis dealing with the worst flood in their modern history. My heart is open to pray for their peace and salvation. Canada has changed in every way. I believe immigrants from the Middle East and Asia are pouring in here looking for a better life. Many are very hard working, and yet we hear stories of how Canadians no longer want to work as they get hands out from the government?

I have reminded several churches that Jesus’ birth name is Yeshua! Our old friend and pastor Ralph Rutledge opened the way for us to minister in City Church in Brantford Ontario. Here, the praise was thunderous. This simple chorus was sung over and over: ‘Yeshua … the most beautiful of thousands and thousands.” I couldn’t help but sing to myself, “The most beautiful of thousands and TEN thousands.” This passage in Daniel begins at Father’s throne … A river of fire  flowing, coming out from him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him …” Daniel

“This is the best service, I have ever attended.” 

After the service, many old timers, come to us and say, “This is the best service I have ever attended.” They loved that we present historical fact and yet are relevant to today. ALIYAH is the single greatest sign of the moving of the Holy Spirit across the earth today. Again Russia is rising up to dominate and control.

The Queen:

I saw snippets of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, in all of its beauty and pageantry. I was deeply impressed by the ceremony in Windsor Castor when the scepter, orb and crown were removed from her coffin and placed back on the alter. All authority comes from His throne. What a lesson in humility and truth to leaders of the entire world. Her dedication was unparalleled from age 21 when she vowed to commit her life to the service for the good of the Commonwealth. She followed through in faithful service to Jesus, her Servant-King, in like manner. I feel grateful to have witnessed her life of wisdom and restraint.

Messiah Presented

“Behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like the son of man.

 He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him.

 To him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom 

that all people, nations and languages should serve him.

His domain is an everlasting dominion with shall not pass away.

And His kingdom is one the shall not be destroyed.”

Daniel 7:10, 23,24.

Lastly, go to 13 minutes … to listen to a savour one of my favourite Hebrew worship songs. 

Blessings to you all,

Meridel Rawlings
