Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem

God planted me in a fertile field of World Revival Church where Pastors Steve and Kathy Gray have been hosting the presence of God with hungry and desperate people for 19 years. Their hope is in the restoration of God’s creation and their plan is to bring honor and glory to the King of Kings. 

My heart leaped with joy to be planted and grow alongside spiritual warriors. Pastor Steve and Kathy both have a desire and heart to bring this same hope and glory to the Jewish people, to the city of David, God’s chosen people.

Steve Gray Ministries is an organization recently expanded to bring the reviving presence of God to his covenant people in Israel. Pastor Steve and Kathy know and carry that presence of God. It is an honor to join with them and give my life as a service to the King of Kings.

As Jesus wept over Jerusalem, our hearts weep over the city.

As Jesus wept over Jerusalem, our hearts weep over the city, and to see once more, Israel become a nation that worships the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the city that Jesus wept over when He came to his own and they received Him not. 

Have you ever wept over the separation of someone dear? I have. My testimony is one of an interception and a change of direction. I was born into the culture of Mennonite where our mode of travel was horse and buggy and for generations believed that was your way to heaven. 

My testimony is one of an interception and a change of direction.

Through a season of an intense crying out to God my walls came down and my life was totally wrecked while encountering the overwhelming love of God that superseded my will. I was enabled by the Holy Spirit to make hard decisions to go a new direction in life leaving everything I loved and ever believed. Through this journey, God has been preparing me to be an instrument in His plan of restoration as I wrestled in tears with deep love and loneliness.

Words don’t describe the depth of sorrow and love that were so intertwined with a love from God and through it revealed His love for nations. In those desperate times He spoke to me that I was to help His people. 

God is still looking for those who will hear Him and give their lives to His plan. Desperate hearts will respond to His call and follow for the Glory of God. God broke through my walls and I have given my life to the King of Kings.  Will you be one that is willing to respond to God and let him reveal His heart to you?

God broke through my walls and I have given my life to the King of Kings. 

It is time for all that Jesus gave his life for to be accomplished and for Israel to hear, the Lord, our God is One. The God who defeats their enemies and nations tremble to hear of their great God. And the world will know I AM is and forever reigns!
