THE DAY SPRING FROM ON HIGH
Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist exclaimed at the birth of his son that The LORD 'hath visited and redeemed His people' (Luke 1:68), he also said that 'the day spring from on high hath visited us' (Luke 1:78). What strange expressions (or are they?) at the advent of John the Baptist. You would think that Zacharias would have shouted for joy for the birth of his son John, but remember, that he was 'filled with The Holy Ghost' (Luke 1:67), therefore, his thoughts and words transcended the pale of humanity as he prophesied about the soon coming of The Messiah, who would appear a few months later.
What can we learn from the above? So often the things and issues of life have a tendency to get our attention in such a way that our priorities before The Almighty GOD can often become secondary. You and I as children of The most High GOD need to make sure that our reason and purpose in life shows forth a true and unmoveable commitment. Like Zacharias of old, you and I need to continually proclaim the wonderful message of love 'to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile' that Y'shua (Jesus) is coming again. 'Even so, come, LORD Jesus' (Revelation 22:20b). May we not forget our blessed mission in life, and that is, to proclaim Y'shua (Jesus) to all that will hear His wonderful and precious Word. Yes, we also are filled with 'The Holy Spirit' guiding and directing us, always. Amen.
A NOTE OF THANK YOU
Both my wife and I are totally overwhelmed at the generosity and response that many of you have shown us as you prayed for my recovery and also gave towards the special need mentioned in our 'letter of appeal'. There is still a need, but we know that The Almighty GOD will provide 'according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus' (Philippians 4:19).
Isn't it wonderful to know that we are not alone. Yes, there is a great hosts of believers in Y'shua (Jesus) that care and are concerned about one another, and, many of you have indeed put your faith into action. Thank you LORD.
We have received get well cards and gracious letters from many of you, and believe me, when you are recovering from (two) heart attacks, it is so refreshing hearing from each one of you. It reminds us of that beautiful Scripture in Proverbs 25:11, 'A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver'.
The LORD God is allowing me a time to recuperate little and little, but nevertheless, our mission and work for our Saviour through Shalom Scripture Studies continues. By the way, any afternoon, if you would like to speak with us,
please call us at: (912) 691-0709 or, you can E-mail us at: Eli3760@aol.com
Mrs. Hidalgo and I desire that the following Scripture be effective in your very own life, now and always.
'Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and The GOD of love and peace shall be with you' (II Corinthians 13:11).
NEWS FROM ISRAEL
A Jewish fund raising organization has recently been established in Britain with the aim of giving financial and other forms of assistance to Israeli mothers-to-be who are considering abortion as a way out of their present circumstances. The group known as 'Just One Life' models itself on Israel's Nefesh Achat B'Yisrael - 'One Soul In Israel'. A trustee of the group commented "We lose thousands of children in Israel because of financial considerations and we want to prevent this loss to ensure the growth of the Jewish population."
"I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Marvellous are Thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret".
DROPS OF HOPE:
Clinical trials of a flu vaccine developed at the Hebrew University Hadassah School of Medicine have proved successful. The breakthrough, however, is not the vaccine but the way it is administered to the individual. It will be the first influenza vaccine in the form of nose drops to be found safe and effective. One of the University's senior virologists commented that if the vaccine was manufactured on a mass scale it would prove to be of great benefit to many people at high-risk who currently avoid having a flu injection.
