July 2016 OIM News


JULY 2016

During the first week of this month, Margaret, John and I traveled to Grantham, PA, where the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA) has their annual conference, Messiah 2016, during the week of the Fourth of July. For Margaret and me, there had been a twenty years hiatus since 1996, when we first attended the national conference in our attempt to understand where the Holy Spirit had led us after our tour of Israel with the Zola Levitt Ministry in 1994. At that time as evangelical Christians, we pondered, why had the Lord directed our walk with Him to join a Messianic Jewish congregation? In 1996 as serious seekers of the Most High, we were extremely curious about Messianic Judaism, and so Margaret and I attended both the MJAA and UMJC national conferences, in an effort to evaluate what we had gotten involved with.

Certainly, as we look back at those exploratory stops on what we have referred to as our “spiritual scavenger hunt,” we have fond memories of our journey. During those score of years, our Heavenly Father called and commissioned us to found Outreach Israel Ministries, and with the addition of John McKee in 2003, what is now his Messianic Apologetics division. In our ministerial capacity, we have endeavored to collectively cross-examine, principally in writing, what the Holy Scriptures have declared to those who call upon the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

This July, our ministry was able to have two tables in the Cultural Marketplace, to display and exhibit our books and publications to a broad selection of people in the Messianic Jewish community. Providentially, the day before arriving at the conference, two unsolicited e-mail messages from highly respected Messianic Jewish rabbis, posted laudatory comments about J.K. McKee’s exhaustive work and commentaries to an e-mail forum of hundreds of their fellow rabbis. Needless to say, Margaret, John, and I are very appreciative of the great favor being bestowed upon us, along with the blessings I am personally receiving from coordinating a significant shipment of medical equipment and supplies to the Joseph Project in Israel, a ministry of the MJAA.

While at Messiah 2016, I was able to attend a number of breakout teaching sessions where various leaders and teachers shared their thoughts on a variety of Biblical and Messianic Jewish topics. From my notes, there were some very encouraging messages from two wise and seasoned leaders, which have prompted me to write this month’s lead article entitled, A Messianic Vision.” For most assuredly from what I gleaned at the conference, the patience and perseverance we all need to maintain—as the Holy One is indeed reconstituting the “one new man” in Yeshua (Ephesians 2:15), and is implementing the prophesied Messianic restoration of all things (Acts 3:19-21)—is just a matter of His time, and not ours.

We want to graciously thank those of you who have given generously to our OIM Technology Fund! This Summer, we are in the process of upgrading all of our office computers, as the need to multi-task—particularly with the editing of new video and audio podcasts—has been growing in intensity. The first stage of this involves relegating our three main machines to a secondary working capacity. One of the three new computers we need has already been acquired. Once the remaining two computers we need are acquired, then we will be able to evaluate what additional hardware we might need, including moving beyond just having computers which employ the Windows operating system. We want to be able to have a very efficient and streamlined setup, as we continue to add new teachings to our two websites, and we reach out via social media venues such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and most especially YouTube!

“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-25).

Advancing His Kingdom, until the restoration of all things…
