Still Small Voice – Heshvan 18, 5783 / November 12th 2022

Shalom Dear Friends: Sometimes I think we become all too familiar with the many privileges of being a believer in a God who lives! What do I mean? I know that I have not appreciated the immense potential granted me through His Living Word. We speak it daily, read and discuss it, but do I release it? I woke up this morning with some instructions:  “My Word IS the source of Life, hinder me not!”  Our Shabbat dinner is the highlight of the week. This week, two sons, a kalah, (Hebrew for a son’s wife}, a family friend and a delightful 22-month-old grandson were our guests. As is our custom, after the blessings we hugged and kissed before beginning to eat. It was a superb feast of fresh fish caught earlier in the day and masterfully prepared by our Greek friend. We topped it off with chocolate cake, berries and ice cream. Yummy. The real piece d’resistance was the scripture reading that followed. Today, who isn’t seeking direction in this upside-down world? It read as …

Still Small Voice – Cheshvan 12 5783 / November 6, 2022

To the dear company of my Friends: “Intercessors are really prophets who pray.” Jennifer Evaz  With the mounting stress, I turn to prayer. What do you do? Prayer is thankless work. One engages mostly alone with the LORD or in fellowship with fellow believers.  As a prayer warrior-intercessor-prophet, have you ever expected to be thanked? Of course not. I find the communion and fellowship with Yeshua my greatest reward, and I learn new things all the time. Thank you for also being willing to bear this yoke. No it is not easy. We don’t expect ‘easy’, for His burden IS Light! Prayer brings change, God’s way. I have kept a journal over the years, and the answers and solutions to insurmountable circumstances have been amazing. Prayer is the oil that keeps all parts moving in harmony … be it a car or the body of Messiah. This unity produces unseen energy, salvation, creativity and productivity. Yes, we must all do our part for faith without works is dead. “The LORD saw that the wickedness (depravity) …

​​Still Small Voice – Heshvan 4 5783 / October 30, 2022

My Dear Friends: “Meridel, here. Still weary from the Canadian journey, but listening for the Still Small Voice and trying to be obedient. Thank you for your prayers over us and your letters and notes. I will eventually catch up. Most urgent are your prayers for the nations and their generations This is needed more than ever before. May you and I be found faithful to work along with the heavenly hosts and warrior angels. If you are at a loss on how to pray, pray in the Spirit of God. The hour is late.” “I hid my face from you for a moment; but with everlasting loving kindness, I will have compassion on you, says the LORD your Redeemer.” Psalm 44:23 “But Zion said; The LORD has forsaken me, and the LORD has forgotten me.” Isaiah 49:14 During our morning family devotions, we mused over these verses.  Many times the prophetic voice relates to Zion, Israel, and also Yeshua – Jesus the Messiah, even Sion, the living Body of Messiah. Jay surmised that Psalm …

Still Small Voice – West Jet Airline: en route Calgary to Toronto.   Oct.1/22  

Dear Friends, old and new: Let’s begin with something from ISRAEL:  Recently, before Prime Minister Yair Lapid addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations at the annual opening, we, Israelis were in a state of nervous expectation.  The order of speakers in that august, if impotent, an organisation is – First Presidents, then Prime Ministers and when his turn came the PM walked confidently to the podium and began the speech of his life. He was brilliant, quiet, understated but firm and his introduction opened by telling of his love of country and his family’s Holocaust history. Quietly he brought his discourse to the crux of the Middle East problem and the possible solution. He promoted the idea of a two-state solution but with one essential caveat.  First and foremost a peace agreement is signed and honoured between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Here is his speech.  The religious opposition uses hate speech and fear of the Palestinians to move their agendas forward. Amazingly P.M.Lapid actually called the Palestinian Leadership’s bluff. THEY DO NOT …

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 …

Still Small Voice: Vancouver island, Canada – Sept 18th 2022

Shalom Dear Friends: “Sound the Shofar for the four winds of heaven to bring the elect home to Israel.” Zechariah 2:6 “To God Almighty, the Lord of Israel: May Michael be at you right hand, Gabriel at your left hand, before you Raphael and behind you Uriel, and above  you the divine presence of God.” From the Shema “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.” John 15:26 The amazing truth is that when we are weak He is strong. Last night we were at Christian Fellowship Centre in Qualicum up island. A beautiful dinner was laid out, in the Fireside room. Jay and I continue to labor under a viral infection picked up in Holland, but inspite of our weariness, the Holy Spirit showed Himself to be strong touching lives. We were with dear friends last night who have stood with us these many years. Jay and I have learned to lean hard on …

Still Small Voice from British Columbia Canada – Sept 11th 2022

Shalom Dear Friends: “ No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make a level path for our feet so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.” Hebrews 12:12 The destinies of the nations are changing before our very eyes! Pause and consider. Traveling so intensely, leaves us with not a moment to even hear world news. We didn’t even know Queen Elisabeth had died. We still have not had a moment to catch up. While in Holland we were hit with a heavy flu, and are still in the process of shaking it off as we have been traveling and ministering.  Welcome to the Dominion of Canada.  The first impression here is one of incredible prosperity, affluence, abundance and plenty. There seems to be no lack of anything. This turns out to be an illusion. We began our prayer tour in Vancouver, and on the …

Pieni hiljainen ääni – Alankomaat, Elul-kuu 5782 4. syyskuuta 2022 

Shalom ystävät!  On ilo palata jälleen Alankomaihin. Tämä syksyn ajanjakso tunnetaan Jumalan vuodenaikana! Sitä  kutsutaan myös ‘ennalta määrätyiksi ajankohdiksi’. Syksyn kolmen juhlaa ovat: pasuunansoiton  juhla, suuri sovituspäivä, joka päättyy seitsenpäiväiseen lehtimajanjuhlaan! Profeetallisesti ottaen  pasuunat kätkevät vertauskuvana Kristuksen kuolleistanousemisen. Suuri sovituspäivä on aikaa,  jolloin Jumala kohtaa ihmisen. Lehtimajanjuhla [en. Feast of Tabernacles, tabernacle = asumus,  telttamaja, sukkah] puhuu Messiaan olemisesta meidän kanssamme; Immanuel, Jumala kanssamme  [hepr. immanu = kanssamme El = Jumala]!  Olemme 40 päivän katumuksen tai kääntymyksen ajanjaksossa, jota hepreaksi kutsutaan teshuvaksi. Se alkoi elul-kuun 1.päivänä, elokuun 28. päivänä, ja päättyy lokakuun 5. päivänä, suurena  sovituspäivänä.   Pyydämme teitä rukoilemaan Jayn ja minun puolesta lähtiessämme matkaamaan halki Kanadan  rannikolta rannikolle. Uskomme MUUTOKSEEN kaikialla minne menemmekään.  Kymmenen päivän jaksoa pasuunansoiton päivästä (juutalainen uusi vuosi) suureen sovituspäivään  (syyskuun 26. päivä – lokakuun 4.päivä) kutsutaan myös syvän kunnioituksen, ihmetyksen päiviksi.  Se on anteeksiantamisen suuntaamista niitä kohtaan, jotka ovat loukanneet meitä. Juutalainen uusi  vuosi osuu syyskuun 25.-27. päiviin. Muista elämäämme ympäröivää armoa ja päästä irti  kaikesta loukkaavasta. Tämä on jumalallisen armon aikaa sinua kohtaan, ja sinun on tarpeen katua ja …

Still Small Voice – Holland, Elul 5782 Sept 4th 2022

Shalom Friends; It is a joy to be back in Holland again. This fall season is known as, The Seasons of God! This season is also called The Appointed Time. The three fall festivals are; The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, concluding with the seven-day Feast of tabernacles!  Prophetically, Trumpets conceals the imagery of the resurrection of the dead in Christ.  The Day of Atonement is when God meets man. The Feast of Tabernacles, speaks of Messiah tabernacling with us; Immanuel, God with us! This is a 40-day season of repentance or turning – Teshuvah. Elul the 1st began, on August 28th and concludes on October 5th, the Day of Atonement. We ask you to pray for Jay and I as we work our way from coast to coast across Canada. We are believing for CHANGE everywhere we go. The 10 days from Trumpets (the Jewish New Year) to the Day of Atonement (September 26th – October 4th) are also called, The Days of Awe.  It is a time to extend forgiveness to …

​​Still Small Voice – August 29th  2022

Shalom Dear Friends:  “Leave the children alone and do not forbid them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. After placing his hands on them [for a blessing] He went on from there.” Matthew 19:14,15 My husband and I belong to the Silent Generation. We are among those who lived through WW2. Even as little children, we paid a price as did every living soul involved.  Canadians had a will to stand up against the darkness of Nazism. Our nation confronted that evil from 1939-1945. Today, we are challenged to speak Truth but often are inhibited. Silence is seen as consent by the New World Order. Next week, my letter will come to you from Holland. Dear friends, please keep a prayer watch for us from September 1st – Oct 20. Pray for us to cross international borders without incident. What a time to be on the road? May we be found faithful and obedient to deliver the Word of the Lord. A widowed friend from Switzerland writes: …
