Our first speaker was Jane Hansen Hoyt. She reminded us of the prophetic words spoken over the ministry by Dutch Sheets regarding the call to Israel & the nations and the authority we have as believers.
Nineteen people were commissioned as Watchmen on the Wall this morning and 20 were commissioned in the evening session. Jane called out their names and Sandy gave them their certificates and the pin from Jerusalem.
The evening session covered many things. Asher Intrader spoke about the moral decline of the nation of Israel and the causes. He then brought a powerful message entitled, "Throwing the First Stone." This message compared the laws of justice in Deut. with the way Jesus dealt with the woman caught in adultery in the N.T. Jesus said, "I don’t condemn. I don’t condone." In Deut. It says a person caught in adultery should be stoned. The man first, then the woman. In NT they condemned the woman, but not the man. Jesus actions to the woman said, "I love you, and I want you to know freedom!"... NEED TO HEAR THE REST OF IT.
Leon Mazin, a Russian Messianic Jew spoke to us. He has a ministry called "Return to Zion" in Haifa . He said 60-70% of the Messianic believers in Israel are Russian.
