Still Small Voice – June 25th 2022

From Meridel’s desk  Dear reader, By God’s grace, this will be my last letter to you from Israel this year. Our children Daniel and Shelly are living in our home for the next year, and we are going to our cottage in Greece. The sale of our home in Canada helped us buy an old house in Greece AND Josh designed and oversaw the construction of a place to go to rest and write.  Our address: P O Box 47554, 21051 Ermioni, Greece. Your SNAIL mail will be safe here. It is not in Israel, I am very sad to say. We cannot receive checks as no bank will cash them. You can use this account in Germany.  Jay Rawlings.

Still Small Voice – June 19th 2022

Dear Friends: I feel the following life-giving words belong to those suffering from the ongoing effects of the vaccine. Mind you, the doctors call it ‘long COVID’. Having not had COVID but after taking the 2nd vaccine in early February 2021, I had an immediate negative reaction. Fluid poured out of my nostrils after 15 minutes and continued for some time. Seven months later, I was stricken with debilitating weakness. imbalance and exhaustion. 8 months later to the day, I woke up with weakness in my right hand. I couldn’t turn on my electric toothbrush or open a cupboard door. I was hospitalized for a week in Neurology, and given daily tests, and 3 MRIs. Nothing!  But one of my Drs. came to me privately and said, “We’ve had many such cases.”  I am allowed my personal experience. I have a brother who died of a massive heart attack a month after the 3rd dose. I had never heard him complain of heart trouble or needing heart meds. Yes, this is my experience and opinion. …

Still Small Voice – June 13th, 2022

Dear Friends: I begin with this encouraging quote: “The presence of the LORD comes when reading the Still Small Voice and with it a mixture of joy and tears. I love to support your work, you are good ground, and I pray for you and your family daily.” J. M., USA “The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great …” Genesis 6:5 To quote Jesus:  “What comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.” Matthew 15:18 What does My Future Hold? Today, citizens in every nation are grappling with this question. Will slavery continue? I can hear the Spirit of the LORD calling ‘listen’! Those who desire to hear the invisible voice will obey. “Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness, who seek and inquire of the LORD: Look to the rock you were cut from and to the quarry from which you were dug.” Isaiah 51:1 Sometimes we need to backtrack to see how far we have gotten off the beaten track. No matter the challenges; …

Still Small Voice – June 5th, 2022

My dear Friends, Shalom! Shavuot  –  Pentecost This weekend in Israel we are celebrating The Feast of Shavuot which in English is Pentecost. God chose a family of people, the Jews, for Himself. He led them into slavery, so they would cry out to Him. Then, He delivered them through Moses at Passover. Then while in the desert of Sinai He chose to SPEAK. Darkness, earthquakes and fire descended upon Mount Sinai. Sadly, fear sent the people running in the opposite direction of The Terrifying, Commanding, yet Blessed Presence. They fled. Left all alone, Moses communed with the Almighty and wrote and spoke the words of instruction he heard. This Law of God, known as the Ten Commandments forever changed the world, FIRST becoming the foundation of Israel as a Nation. Until today the Biblical laws given to Moses are the basis of constitutions in democracies and Supreme Courts. But, sadly, in this day, ALL democracies are under threat of being diminished.  Jesus Brings the Fulfillment  Two thousand years later, Jews came up to the …

Still Small Voice – May 29th 2022 

Dear Friends who pray! Today is JERUSALEM Day!   Jerusalem in Hebrew is Yerushalayim –  which is plural meaning Jerusalems. Jerusalem on earth is twinned to the Jerusalem above. Jerusalem points to the one that is to come. This is Jerusalem the earthly and speaks of Jerusalem the heavenly. This is Jerusalem of time and space, pointing to the Eternal. This city is flawed and imperfect and points to the perfect and glorious. If you belong to God you belong to both Jerusalems. We are celebrating 55 years since Jerusalem was united under Israeli sovereignty in 1967, for the first time since her destruction in 70 CE / AD. Marchers will carry flags of Israel throughout the city. Hamas is threatening rocket attacks. They are insulted that Israel’s flag flies over all of the ancient city.  Yes, hatred is a kind of madness. It’s very simple. Hamas wants Jerusalem.  The world wants Jerusalem. Do you want Jerusalem? See Psalm 122.  “Jerusalem has been fought over 16 times. It has been destroyed twice. Besieged 23 times. Attacked …

Still Small Voice May 2017 – Lest We Forget

This May in Israel is a time for look back and remembering our history, for pausing today to consider the price in blood paid over the land of Israel, and then to look forward and rejoice in the good promises of the Eternal Book concerning this Land of Israel and her peoples. “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again  be two or be divided into two kingdoms.”  Ezekiel 37:21-22 Hebrew Bible. This eternal word is for the Jewish people, represented by the olive tree to the left. 20 years ago we transplanted this olive tree in our garden, an ever present reminder of this verse. What promise in the Bible are you making your very own today? This spring, I found a …

Still Small Voice thanks you

My overview of Dr. Jay Rawlings health situation. The rough neighborhood around Israel… Short piece: “My Father holds the Rope” Shalom Dear Friends: March 2017 For a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold, which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Messiah. 1 Pet. 1:6,7. Thank you for your inquiries about our ‘head’ Dr. Jay Rawlings, and my beloved husband, whom we all just call ‘Jay’. I want to send you a good report in spite of present difficulties. Just this week Lydia a German friend called to pray. She immediately discerned; “Plead the blood of Jesus over Jay’s breathing, pay attention to his breathing..” It was an amazing word. A week ago Jay had an ‘incident’ and one of his medications had to be changed. This now requires that he have blood tests weekly. Having waited since my last letter for the results of …

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!

Holy Bloodshed

Terror in Jerusalem does not just happen. It is calculated, and carefully coordinated by senior PA politicians to inflict the greatest pain into Israel through lies, their youth, rocks, knives and screwdrivers. Gaza is the 2nd front with rocket attacks. ISIS represents the 3rd front secreted in Jerusalem’s Old City and Gaza. This beautiful generation of young Palestinians are only being obedient in acting out the lies they have swallow; as did their fathers and their grandfathers before them.
