Wealth of the Nations & Feet of the Apostles

There are several passages in the prophets that speak of a day in which the “wealth of the nations (or Gentiles) will come” (Isaiah 60:5; 60:9; 60:11; 60:16; Zechariah 14:14; Revelation 21:6).

New Age of Acts of the Apostles

At the turn of the year 2017, as we were praying during our conference in Brazil, I sensed the Spirit of the Lord saying in my heart, to “return to a new age of the acts of the apostles.” For decades we have looked to the book “Acts of the Apostles” as the pattern for… Read more »


Timing of the Rapture

Yeshua’s foundational teaching on the end times is found in all three synoptic gospels (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21).

Three Goals of Apostolic/Prophetic Restoration

Three times the letter to the Ephesians makes reference to the work of “apostles and prophets“. 1. Laying Ecclesia Foundations The first reference deals with laying foundations for the Church… Read more »


Aggressive Humility

Recently while praying over a situation affecting many of our friends both in Israel and internationally, I saw a picture in my heart of a massive stone wall, indicating the difficulty of the problem. The wall was too big to destroy or to climb over. The wall represented the pride, ego and honor of the… Read more »
