Shalom and warmest greetings to you from our God the Father and the Lord Jesus the Messiah.
Thank you very much for your partnership with us. Thank you very much for your support by prayers and financial giving. May your faith never be shaken and may God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, God of Israel bless you abundantly!
Summer is over and we are just ready for the Gods Fall Feasts – Tishrei month Holidays.
On September 20 (Tishrei 1), from sunset, we are going to begin celebrate The Feast of Yom Teruah (Feast of Sounding of the Shofar or by Rabbinical tradition Rosh-Ha Shana- Jewish New 5778 Year) , and ten days later, we will celebrate Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement),
and finish with Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles).
All of these feasts have prophetic meaning regarding Rapture of the church, Tribulation, Repentance and salvation of Israel, and the return of the Messiah.
The ancient rabbis held a similar view: “In the month of Nisan (at Passover), our ancestors were redeemed, and in Tishrei (Rosh Ha-Shana), they will be redeemed in the time to come”.
Also they say:” And it is the ram’s horn that the Holy One, blessed be he, is destined to blow when the son of David , our righteous one, will reveal himself, as it said ‘And the Lord God will blow the horn’ “.
Our congregation always celebrates Feasts of the Lord, and
we will use this opportunity to witness to people about The Messiah Yeshua.
In the month of August, we witnessed by God’s grace to more than 500 people.
In Cleveland OH, I met a Chinese woman who accepted NT.
A family from India who spoke Tamil, and an Arabic man got some
Christian literature in their languages, and a lady from England received NT.
In Chicago, IL I had a blessed opportunity to witness in a Millennium park during a festival.
Thousands of people from around the world were there. I wasn’t allowed to use a microphone, but God gave me a strength to preach loud. Before we started I spoke with a security supervisor to confirm that we have a right to speak the Word in public places. While I was preaching another security officer tried to stop me, but he contacted with his supervisor, and we could to continue to preach. When we started to have problems from different angry people, security guards were protecting us that we could continue preaching. I remember an Arabic lesbian, who told me that she attends a church, and that it’s normal to be a lesbian and Christian, and that she’ll be in heaven. I responded that homosexuality is a sin, and she is not a Christian if she continues to be in a sin, and that according Bible she will not to be in heaven until she repents in her sins. Another gay man who heard my conversation with the lesbian became very angry and started scream at me. Next 15-20 minutes I had a conflict with the man. He followed me and screamed. Lot of people were around. Security asked him to calm down.
Most people did not like what we were saying, but they heard Word of God.
In Pittsburgh, PA with our friends from Ukrainian Evangelical church, we shared Gospel in S.District area. Lot of people received witness. First, whom we met was a gay couple. Conversation was good and very peaceful with them. After that I started to read and preach publicly by using a microphone. A woman stopped, and asked why am I preaching about God? I responded that because people need to know about God and the way of Salvation in the Messiah Jesus. During our conversation, more and more the woman started to be angry, especially when I said that Lord Jesus is only the way to be saved. When I asked her if she believes in Lord Jesus, she responded that not, and that she is a spiritual. She also said that Bible is not word of God. After that she was trying to interrupt my preaching and was screaming. I told her that she needs to meet Lord Jesus and repent to be saved.
In State College, PA I was participating in a Bible track project. We were at a festival field area. I decided to go through all business booths there and share Gospel. You could watch this video on my Youtube. Hundreds and hundreds were listening. Praise God! Even I had couple conflicts when few people who were trying to stop me, everything went well. Some business owners were angry. They told me that I can’t preach Gospel, and hailed devil. One woman told me that she is godless.
Very shortly God blessed us, and a woman from India accepted NT.
