Family News – December, 2012

Dear Ones,

Here we are, once again rejoicing at the abundant and amazing faithfulness of our God!  I presume you’ve been able to read John’s latest two lessons, Israel, the Thorn in the Flesh of the World, Parts 1 and 2.  Did they impact you as deeply as they did me?  I saw so much more clearly our Lord’s deep and abiding devotion for His Bride and why in His infinite wisdom, He had to veil her eyes in order to allow the pagan gentile world to come to salvation.  If that hadn’t happened, they would have just have shrugged it all off as some Jewish thing and would have never known the gift of eternal life.

I’m reminded of Habakkuk 2:3 as I’m writing:  “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false.  Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”

There is an excitement in my soul as I look at the world around me through that newly opened understanding.  And I believe the veils will soon be removed – Jewish people will see and embrace their promised Messiah, and the pagan gentile world will see and embrace Israel as their root.  We non-Jewish believers will finally see that it’s not, nor has it ever been, us vs. them or us replacing them.  In God’s sight it’s always been them and in His heart, there has always been room to graft us in and include us all.

I feel like we have been invited to be a part of the great work of preparing the way for the coming of the Lord (see Isaiah 40) and that as we are faithful to live and model and share His Truth, He will add the increase to the seeds our yielded lives have allowed the Spirit to plant in us and reveal through us.  And in the fullness of time, those seeds will blossom in the hearts of many more truly Blood-purchased disciples who will bow their knees to the King of Kings.

Several emails this month were again deeply personal and spoke of great pain and God, reaching through that pain, to touch these wounded souls.  I was brought to tears reading them, feeling not only grief and compassion for their pain, but also an overwhelming thankfulness to God because it again proves that nothing is impossible for Him and that no pain is too deep, and no damage is beyond His healing hand.  Like the others before them, I’ve written back to ask permission to share these stories and will incorporate them if permission is granted.  But because we can pray both with the spirit and with the understanding, even if the details of their struggles are never shared, I am asking the rest of the FMM family to stand with these dear people in an attitude of prayer until their healing, freedom and restoration is fully obtained.

As you read this month’s mail, be prepared to be amazed again at how marvelous and faithful our God is!  And may His richest blessings be yours in the New Year.

In His Perfect Love,

Your sister, Nancy
