Speak to the Dirt!: The Way of God in the Resurrection of Israel by [Lawrence, Les]

Here is a way to read the first few chapters for free. Click here to download the free Kindle App for IOS, Android, Mac and/or PC; and then click here for the free sample of Speak to the Dirt! Notice that it is not the Kindle Unlimited box in gold, but the blue box a little further down on the left which says: “Send a free sample.” Thanks. Enjoy!

Why would God command a man to speak to dirt? Yet “Prophesy!” is the command that the Lord Yehovah gave to Ezekiel. Its force is no less urgent today. End time prophecy regarding Israel is being fulfilled before our very eyes and the church needs to understand what God is doing in the Promised Land today. 
A tremendous ingathering of souls is taking place all over the world. This is even more significant when considering the physical and spiritual ingathering of the Jewish people. In this book you will see how the events in Israel reflect the Fulfillment of God’s plan, the coming of the Messiah!
“The spotlight of history is not held in man’s hand but in the hand of God. He is the Director of the Final Act – He will do precisely what he has always said he would do!” (Excerpt from Speak to the Dirt! by Les Lawrence)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!

Who is Fair?

22 06 2018

Fairness

Here is a little something to ponder as you unplug from work this weekend.

While raising our three daughters, the question of fairness came up occasionally. Children can be quick to conclude they are being treated unfairly, usually because they don’t get their way. But fairness is not so much a question of what, but of who.

When a parent defends his judgement “…because I say so!” it can fall short, because we are imperfect and can be wrong. However when God defines fairness, He is 100% right, since it issues out from His perfect character of righteousness and truth. If you have an argument with God, the solution is simple; admit that you are wrong and He is right. Turn from you wrong-doing and line up with His will. “Turn (repent) and Live!” is His advice.

“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair?

“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Therefore turn and live!” Ezekiel 18:25-32

God has no pleasure in death. Many will die in sin, but it grieves the Father God. He has given us the choice to turn to Him or refuse. He does not force us to repent. That is on us. He provided the way out for us by sacrificing His Son, the Messiah Yeshua to die for us and thus satisfy Yehovah’s righteousness. Therefore turn and live!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Fruitful Idaho Ministry

18 06 2018

Challis, IdHere is a quick update of our Idaho ministry so far. I have spoken in eight different meetings, seven in Sandpoint and one in Challis. There is an amazing hunger for Israel news. I am finding that in spite of anti-Israel propaganda on media, folks are hearing the voice of Yehovah calling out to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

We met a precious body of believers in Challis, Idaho which is in the central mountains about an eight hour drive from Sandpoint in northern Idaho. You go through Missoula, Montana to get there, which is halfway. The leader of Living Waters Ranch (2700 acres) is Christopher James whom I know from years ago in Clearwater and St. Petersburg, Florida. We had great fellowship with Christopher and Debbie. They raise cattle, fish, vegetables, and strawberries, as well as a beautiful gourmet quality restaurant. You should visit Tea Cup Cafe when you get to Challis.

My brother Ken and good friend Ross Hall and I had three wonderful days together on that trip. The Living Water Ranch vision is to prepare to accommodate over 40,000 refugees. Thank you for praying for our weeks here in the spectacular Pacific Northwest. I have two more engagements to preach at the Sandpoint Assembly of God on Wednesday night and Cocolalla Cowboy Church next Sunday.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. ​​Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. ​​There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard Psalm 19:1-3

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Happy Israel 70 Years!

21 04 2018

Dry Bones 70

Seventy years ago David Ben-Gurion publicly read aloud Israel’s Declaration of Independence. According to the Gregorian calendar, that day was May 14, 1948.
According to the Jewish calendar that day was the fifth day of the month of Iyar in the year 5708. So, in Israel they celebrated this week and also in May. Dry Bones

The US Embassy is opening in Jerusalem the day before and the Guatemala Embassy opens the day after. Other countries will soon follow. At least a dozen or so are working through legal details to move their embassies. It is about time that all nations recognize the reality that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. Praise the Lord!

Israel’s Population Tops 8.8 Million On 70th Anniversary – Prophecy News Watch

At 70, Israel’s population is 8.842 million, 43% of world Jewry – Times of Israel

Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them: I will increase their men like a flock. Like a flock offered as holy sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem on its feast days, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they shall know that I am Yehovah.” Ezekiel 36:37-38

Persecution and the Resurrection

31 03 2018

Dry Bones Jews of Europe

Jews have the right of return to their own country, but where do persecuted Christians find refuge? Christians rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus, but are the most persecuted. Christians are the world’s most-persecuted religion

You would think that America would be the place of refuge for Christians, but that has been a problem. In 2016, under the Obama administration, Muslim refugees were given priority over Christians. Yet, Christians are the most persecuted group world-wide. How ironic that we celebrate the resurrection this week while our brothers and sisters are killed. Why can’t Muslim countries take Muslim refugees?

Of the nearly 85,000 refugees admitted to the U.S. in fiscal 2016, 38,901 were Muslims, while 37,521 were Christians, according to a Pew Research Center report

According to that same report, about 99 percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. were Muslim, while less than 1 percent were Christian.

The good news is that President Trump is trying to correct the problem. Trump: Persecuted Christian refugees will get priority. 

We are so insulated in the U.S. that most Christians are oblivious to the oppression and death of Christians in other countries. 215 MILLION?

The Top 50 Countries Where It’s Most Dangerous to Follow Jesus Approximately 215 million Christians now experience high, very high, or extreme levels of persecution; that means 1 in 12 Christians live where Christianity is “illegal, forbidden, or punished,” according to Open Doors researchers.

We have always known as believers, that our only hope is in Yehovah God and His Son, Yeshua. We face death with the confident hope of eternal life, which is quite different from those who have no hope. However, as we pause to celebrate the supernatural resurrection and the defeat of death itself, remember the millions of fellow believers enduring persecution for the same faith. Pray for them. Don’t feel pity, because they testify of the honor of suffering for Him and they rejoice, just as Jesus predicted.

“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:11-12

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: 
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:31-39

Pray for persecuted Christians and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Passover News from Israel

27 03 2018

Passover at Temple MtHere are some very interesting stories about Passover from Israeli news sources for your enjoyment. My last commentary was about why Christian Zionists observe Passover. This time I just want to share a glimpse into modern Israeli culture around Passover which starts at sundown this Friday.

Treasure trove of ancient Jewish ‘freedom coins’ just in time for Passover  JERUSALEM, Israel – Hebrew University archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar uncovered a rare treasure trove of bronze coins from the time of the Jewish revolt against the Romans more than 1,900 years ago. “A discovery like this – ancient coins bearing the words ‘Freedom’ and ‘Redemption’ – found right before the Jewish Festival of Freedom, Passover, begins is incredibly moving,” she said.

Third Temple Alert: Police Authorize Passover Sacrifice Next to Temple Mount – Last year, the Passover sacrifice was conducted in the courtyard of the nearby Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, some 450 yards from the Temple Mount. This year, it will take place at the Davidson Center, an archaeological park situated at the southern foot of the sacred plateau, and just below the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Symbolic and Traditional Passover Recipes A poll just taken in Israel – which, incidentally has a majority secular population – found that 67.3 percent of Israeli Jews will eat only kosher (satisfying the requirements of Jewish law) food for Passover and that 63.1 percent will also clean their homes, removing all traces of hametz, or unleavened products, symbolic of sin. (Note from Les: The author made what I am sure was simply a typo. It is “leavened” products removed, not unleavened.)

PA: Passover rites a ‘dangerous precedent’ – Palestinian Authority says Jewish worship in vicinity of Temple Mount is unacceptable, vows to continue to pay terrorists.

So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to Yehovah  throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses.Exodus 12:14-15

Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Lost in Translation…

17 03 2018

For some time now I have listened to the voice of Yehovah God regarding a bombshell controversy in the Bible translation business. Here is the issue in a nutshell. Three major translators today are substituting the name of the god of Islam for Yehovah in Bibles intended for Muslim countries in their own languages. Their rationale is to make it more acceptable to their readers. On the surface, it may sound like a good evangelistic plan.

However, if you trick people into reading the Bible by deceiving them about the nature of God, you confuse rather than convert. Many moderns think Islam is some great complex religion, impossible to grasp. Allow me to simplify. The god of Islam is not a father and does not have a son, according to all their holy books and writings. This is indisputable from their own sources. The God of the Bible is a father and has a son revealed in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

What does this conclude? The god of Islam is a different god. Period. Full stop. Selah.

Therefore, we do not “all worship the same god” no matter how many people, how high their place (including pastors and presidents) say otherwise. It really is that simple. You need go no further. You do not need 20 hours of comparative religion classes to “understand” Islam. You need to read your Bible. What part of: “You shall have no other gods before me” don’t you get? Exodus 20:3

The translation deception is only possible, because for millenia translators have refused to translate the name of God, Yehovah, conforming instead to Jewish rabbinic tradition. They substitute the generic LORD (in all caps) for His name. Yehovah is His personal name, mentioned 6,828 times in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament. Try reversing the substitution in your own reading. Say Yehovah every time it says LORD. You will open up an artesian well of revelation through Scripture.

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4

I will declare the decree: Yehovah has said to Me, “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.” Psalm 2:7

Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:12

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17

 (Today’s commentary is a timely re-post from my blog from March 14, 2012 – See my book, Simple Islam, Kindle version now available.)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
