Shalom and Greetings in our Messiah:
Ecclesiastes 7:1-2 says, A good name is better than precious ointment, And the day of death than the day of one’s birth; Better to go to the house of mourning Than to go to the house of feasting, For that is the end of all men; And the living will take it to heart.
I begin with these two verses because since we last communicated, I have had the difficult task of officiating the funeral of two very dear friends. King Solomon reminds us a funeral is better than a wedding. If these words were not in my Bible, I would not believe them. After all, who would rather attend a funeral than a wedding? But then we are reminded just who funerals are for. The living take it to heart!
During my thirty-six years of ministry God has used funerals to remind the living that ten out of every ten people die; then what? I was compelled in my spirit to make certain that the living take dying so seriously that they will be prepared for the inevitable. This was difficult because I was torn between my emotions for the two men I loved, and the need to love those who were in attendance. We learn from our Lord that the dead are concerned about family left behind. You may recall the man who went to Hades and he wanted someone to return from the dead and tell his five brothers to repent. Abraham made it clear they had the Word of God (see Luke 16:19-31). We never know for certain the effects such a message might have, but we do know this. God uses His message! As I looked out over the first row, I saw many tears—tears that remind us how sad the loss of life is. I also came to learn those tears were a response to the Gospel that promises the hope of resurrection for those who repent and believe the Gospel.
PLEASE PRAY FOR…
- The Gospel, that it would first spread rapidly and be glorified in the hearts of “the lost sheep of the house of Israel,” and also for the salvation of the Gentiles with whom I share the Gospel message;
- Church meetings—to increase both in number and fruitfulness;
- Salvation of neighbors;
- Family and friends at funeral;
- God’s protection; and,
- Success of a new outreach.
We are so grateful to you for being such a crucial part of the Lord’s work through us. Without your prayers and financial support, we would be unable to continue and survive as the Lord’s ambassadors to the Jewish people. Thank you for your commitment to our ministry.
