Hello? Can you hear me now?

Matthew 14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,

Here in Israel, cell phones are all the rage. You wouldn’t believe it but parents even buy cell phones for their kids and send them to school with them in their schoolbags. I’m talking about six and seven-year-old kids! While it is true that part of the reason for this cell phone craze stems from the fact that violence goes on here daily and people want to be able to contact one another in the event of an emergency, I would still say that it’s somewhat excessive.

Mark Twain was once asked to record a Christmas message on an early gramophone. This is what he said, “It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, and admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage–every man and woman of us all throughout the whole earth–may eventually be gathered in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss, except the inventor of the telephone.”

Not that technology is a bad thing, but I think we have become entirely too dependent on it! Telephones, cell phones, televisions, computers, X-Boxes, MP3’s. what’s next?!

Sometimes I feel like we just need to go back to the basics. Put all those things away in a closet somewhere and just sit down with the Word and with our Father. He wants to whisper in our ears sweet words of encouragement and wisdom. He wants to tell us of His wonderful plans for our lives and reveal to us the extraordinary mysteries of His Kingdom. But this can’t happen if we’re too busy taking calls!

So let’s spend the weekend — disconnecting from the world — and reconnecting with our creator … perhaps He’ll give us a fresh revelation … if we will take the time to listen!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

You Are Not What You Don’t Eat

by Jonathan Cahn

You’ve heard the expression, “You are what you eat.” Of course, it’s true. Whatever you eat, that’s what you are. That’s true in the physical realm and also in the spiritual. If you partake of spiritually bad food, if you receive into your heart what is impure, carnal and ungodly, your life will become the same. You might say, “I stay far away from those things.” That’s good, but it’s not enough because the inverse is also true— you are not what you don’t eat.

All believers are called to be as Messiah, in every part of their lives. So here’s the question— are you like Messiah in every part of your life? If not, the problem can be solved with a change of diet. You are what you eat— so the more you partake of Messiah, the more you’ll become like Him. Just as you can’t partake of a food without becoming like it, it can’t fail. Commit yourself to partaking more of His word, His presence, His love, and His beauty, and your life will become more and more Messiah-like. It’s a basic law— you are what you eat.

Today’s Mission – Today, spend time in His presence and partake of the bread of Messiah.
