His death and the gossip reminds me to remind readers about keeping our preachers/teachers/ministers and pastors and their families lifted up before the Lord in prayer. The enemy really rejoices when one of our teachers is brought down, because it affects the body of Christ in a negative way and gives unbelievers yet another excuse to persecute believers. We lift up our teachers, church leaders and their families before You, Lord!
The last two ministries I wanted to highlight are:
Messianic Perspectives 9:30 am - 9:45 am 1110 (http://www.cjfm.org/) - This program is one of the highlights of my morning! The teachers alternate, but my favorite one is Gary Hedrick. He is very knowledgable and presents knowledge in an extremely digestible way. Essentially, Messianic Perspectives is a fellowship of Jews who accept & believe that Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus the Messiah a.k.a. Jesus the Christ) is the Messiah. Therefore, they trust Christ alone for salvation. They are known as Messianic Jews (as opposed to other Jews who at this point in time, do not believe that the promised Messiah has come - please continue to pray for the opening of their eyes). The teachers on Messianic Perspectives instruct in the Word from their Jewish perspective and from it, believe me, you learn a GREAT DEAL. I could go on and on about this program. (Check out their website!)
Hope for the Heart with June Hunt (http://www.hopefortheheart.org/) - This program may have gone off daytime air because I have not been able to locate it at the regular time. There is also an extended version of this program called "Hope in the Night" which plays from about 11pm until past midnight. The "Hope for the Heart" daytime radio program addresses a variety of problematic personal issues and other strongholds that people face such as: drug abuse, low self-esteem, sexual abuse, and anger to name a few. On the "Hope in the Night" night program, June takes phone calls from people who struggle, prays with them and walks them through a brief counseling session, reminding them of God's many encouraging promises and teaching how they can be set free from them.
and keep you;
25 the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”’
