HAPPY NEW YEAR from us all at Revive Israel and every blessing in Yeshua to you for 2019!
Looking back on 2018, it was a year of growth and we give thanks to the Lord, and also to you who partner with the ministry of Revive Israel in prayer, giving and practical help. Some key advances were:
- 100,000 Arabs reached through Social Media via our Arab Outreach partner program – double the previous year.
- 70 volunteers translating Revive Israel teaching, both text and video, reaching many language groups concerning Yeshua’s end-time plan etc.
- 30 international conferences organised or contributed to, with cutting edge teaching and prophetic impact.
- 4 million videos played on Revive Israel Social media.
- 60,000 followers on social media tracking with us – a 3-fold increase.
- Monthly outreach on the streets of Jerusalem, touching the hearts of local people.
God is certainly restoring Israel! Ezekiel writes concerning this restoration and in response to the sinfulness of our nation, “It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name.” (ch36:22) Paul adds concerning the Jewish people, that we are, “…loved on account of the patriarchs” – Romans 11:28. He continues, Yeshua serves the Jewish people, “So that the promises (covenants) made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy.” (Romans 15:8-9) So restoration is taking place for His name’s sake, because of the covenants and for your sake in the nations – and we are thankful for our small part, in partnership with you!
Asher in the USA
In November, Asher travelled to the USA. In Atlanta, Georgia, he spoke with key leaders of the Assemblies of God from around the world. There was a special time to share together with his friend David Demian (of Global Gathering). There was such harmony between the two, Arab and Jew, that they simply shared the microphone with one heart.
In Kansas City there were some wonderful opportunities to teach at Kingdom Living Messianic Congregation and the International House of Prayer and to spend time with Mike Bickle. Asher then spoke at a session of the Messianic Leaders Roundtable in Phoenix, Arizona, led by Jonathan Bernis and Troy Wallace, and then fellowshipped with Messianic leaders.
Towards the end, there was a precious time in Dallas, Texas, with friends and at Destiny Church. He was also interviewed on Daystar TV, speaking about the Alignment book. Finally, there was a conference for Tikkun Global ministries, at Open Door Church.
Please pray for Asher, Betty and their family, for much eternal fruit for Yeshua’s kingdom.
The ministry of Beit HaYeshua continues to bear much fruit, with 15 drug-addicted or alcoholic people coming to faith and having their lives transformed in 2018. Dima is in his early 40s and was an atheist, addicted to heroin for 20 years when he came for help. According to centre manager Roni, “He was a true example of someone walking in darkness. He came to faith and was set free from drugs. Now he truly walks in the light, an example to others of someone who is happy, helpful and responsible.” The linked Beit HaYeshua congregation helps to disciple those who come to faith through the rehabilitation center. Please pray for continued healing, deliverance and restoration in the lives of precious broken people.
Revive Israel East Asia Gathering
In November, Revive Israel Teams from Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong/ China, South Korea and members from the Israel team gathered in Japan for fellowship, teaching, development and coordination. A Korean attendee commented, “There was supernatural unity from heaven, which will bring great breakthrough in the journey of standing with Israel.” The teams are growing and beginning to gain traction and regional impact. Ariel Blumenthal, who has pioneered the work, led the sessions and everyone enjoyed the snow and hot baths. Part of the Israel team continued on to Seoul and Busan, South Korea, to speak at churches, youth meetings, prayer gatherings, and to build up Revive Israel Korea. Meanwhile Ariel continued to Hong Kong to strengthen the team there. Please pray for Ariel and for our east-Asian teams to play their part in new or renewed revival in their respective countries.
