Still Small Voice – May 16th, 2022

Dear Friends Shalom: “Comfort, O comfort My people:” says your God.  Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,  And call out to her, that her time of compulsory service in warfare is finished, That her wickedness has been taken away, That she has received from the LORD’s hand Double [punishment] for all her sins.”   Isaiah 40:1-2 If you are a prayer warrior, and I am assuming that the majority of my readers are: one of your calls will be to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”  You in return are promised prosperity. It is a bond with the Almighty worth cashing in on. Psalm 122:6 We must always remember that nothing can be done without the permission of a man or woman giving ascent spiritually.  Father God gave the earth to the children of men, not angels. Just as Adam was called to keep and tend the Garden of Eden, so we are called to do the same in our spheres of inference. But Jerusalem stands out as the City of God for all peoples. Let me quote Jesus: …

Still  Small Voice – May 8th, 2022

Shalom Dear Friends: “You will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not frightened …” Matthew 24:6 But the good news: “But for you who fear My name, [with awe-filled reverence] the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go forward and leap [joyfully] like calves [released] from the stall.” Malachi 4:2 Israel Celebrates 74 Years: Independence Day The Arabs refer to this day as Nack-bah – Disaster! It seems the whole country spent the day picnicking in our many parks. Our son David and his best friend kept 3 barbecues going the entire time. Forty young Israelis came and Jay and I were the ‘older’ generation. We spoke into several needly young lives. On the way, we drove by Jerusalem’s major parks and saw many tens of thousands of families out ‘barbecuing’! The Jews were the original barbecuers; it all began 4,000 years ago in the desert of Arabia. Jay said, “The blue smoke can be seen from outer space on Israel’s birthday! At …

Christmas & New Year greetings from Meridel

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year dear friends! With joy, I write my last Still Small Voice letter for 2017. Above is a photo taken at the Mandala Center on the shores of Galilee. This location rests within the biblical fishing village of Mary of Magdalene. The painting above represents the time when Jesus stood still in the midst of a moving throng of humanity and demanded: “Who touched me?” Luke 8:44a. A woman with a flow of blood for 12 years, dared to reach out and touch the tallit on Jesus’ prayer shawl. No one noticed, but He did! She had to come forward in front of all to receive her healing. Let each one reading this letter do the same. Come, reach out, push through until you touch Him. You hold the keys to your life, for only you can allow Jesus to renovate your life. Take this step now. Jerusalem The unusual photo Rt. taken by my nephew Paul Chobaniuk from Vancouver, is of the S.W. corner of the Temple Mount. In this place the Almighty said 45 times …

PM Netanyahu 2016 Holiday Greeting

We at Israel Vision and Still Small Voice send to YOU our dear frends worldwide very best wishes for Christmas and Channuka. We sense that 2017 will be a momentous year, and all who pray will be encouraged by this greeting from Mr. Netanayhu. Join us as Meridel gives personal greetings to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a reception at the International Christian Embassy. She was able to mention that the lovely life size oil painting porraits of the Presidents and Prime Ministers which hang in the entrance way to the cabinet room of Israel’s Parliament, Knesset; were painted by renowned Canadian artist, Joy Caros Rawlings of Vancouver, BC Canada. They are a gift to the country. PM Bibi’s response to Meridel was the warm Israeli expression, “Kol Ha Kavod” – meaning in English ” All the Honor or Congratulations”! These are days of unprecedented attacks on Israel by the United Nations. What is happening hearkens back to the days of the Greek occupation of the land 2,300 years ago.  Jews were not allowed to …

Where is the LORD?

The earth is reeling today under the threat of terror. Multitudes are numb with grief and pain, prayer for them perhaps is just mute silence. Let those of us who are quiet and at ease, pick up the slack, and remember the suffering in loving prayer. Today the ‘valley of decision’ is crowded with humanity from every nation. We can remember them. Here’s how.

Prayer for Israel

Thank you for your prayers everyday before the sun sets.  Please know that on behalf of the Jewish nation and people Jay and I thank you for those faithful prayers that we as a nation LIVE!
