Family News April, 2013
I’d like to begin this month’s news by sharing some Scriptures. First, an account that can be found in Matthew 12:41-43 and Luke 21:1-3 (quoted here): “As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. ‘Truly I tell you,’ He said, ‘this poor widow has put in more than all the others.’”
And then from Galatians 5:13-14: “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
And finally, Luke 4:14-21: “Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him. He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.’ Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began by saying to them, ‘Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’”
As you read through this month’s mail, like our Omaha pilot group, you too will see that our FMM family has seen fulfilled scripture in our midst. Our dear brother Timothy has been honored by other family members contributing whatever they could to register the ministry and make his trip to Omaha possible. Prayers continue for Mum’s recovery, and freedoms continue to be proclaimed as our blessed Yeshua meets people all over the earth who have found its teachings either on the website or through the printed booklets. You would have smiled and laughed right along with us last Monday night as all we could do was shake our heads and grin like crazy as we marveled at what our mighty God has been doing!
All any of us has done is to say, “Yes!” when He wooed us out of the darkness and into His marvelous Light, and as we kept saying, “Yes!” to whatever followed, He found a people to whom He could entrust these teachings and Biblical meditations. But, of a certainty, absolutely no glory is ours – we are those who were described in I Corinthians 1:27: “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” So please join us in our symphony of praise as His mighty deeds are once again extolled by grateful disciples in our ever expanding FMM family.
Your sister, Nancy
