God has a plan for you in 2022
by Rabbi Hector Gomez on January 5th, 2022

R.E.C./Beit Tikkun Family,  God has a plan for you in 2022!  (Jewish year 5782)
 
As the secular year comes to a close, many Believers are recommitting themselves to pursuing God with all of their might, to be more fervent in prayer, and to diligently seek to be a blessing to others in the coming year.
 
One true test of our walk with God is living a Spirit-led life in the midst of a secular world.
 
Think on These Things
 
“But godliness with contentment is great gain.”  (1 Timothy 6:6)
 
If we need a new start in life, or if we desire a new beginning in 2022, your faithfulness to God and our ministry and especially Praying for Israel is one of the best places to find inspiration.
 
Here in our own land, and especially in Israel and around the world, we could dwell on the negatives: the wave of terror, the threat of ISIS, the high cost of living, the secular godless people in our government, and in the land of Israel and the Arab-Israeli situation, the increasing international pressure on Israel to divide Jerusalem and desist in building houses for Israelis, the persecution of Messianic Jewish Believers . . . 
Our list could go on and on. . . 
 
But why focus on the negative when we can choose to say, “Baruch HaShem” and praise God for all the wonderful and amazing things He has done in our life, and in the reborn State of Israel, which has only existed since 1948, just after the Holocaust.
  
In the War of Independence in 1948, Israel's enemies outnumbered her four to one!  And yet she triumphed because God miraculously intervened!
 
Even today, the people of Israel are surrounded by hostile neighbors 60 times their population!  And yet, Israel continues to thrive just as we will thrive as ministry.
 
We are also grateful for the support of people like you who support our church!
 
And we thank God daily for you, as we remember His blessings and the ways He is supernaturally providing for this ministry to reach our community with the truth of God’s word, and with the salvation message of eternal life through Yeshua, and the Power of Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit).
 
 
New Beginnings: Remembering Who He Is
 
"Remember the wonders He has done, His miracles, and the judgments He pronounced.”  (1 Chronicles 16:12)
 
According to the Bible, we are all called to remember.
 
For example, in Israel, most of the national holidays are days of remembrance recalling tragic events:
  • Holocaust Memorial Day remembers the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.
  • Yom HaZikaron (Day of Remembrance or Memorial Day) honors all the fallen soldiers and terrorist victims.
  • Tisha B'Av remembers the destruction of the First and Second Holy Temples in Jerusalem.
While it is important to keep these events alive in our memory, perhaps it is even more important to look back at the ways God has blessed us, saved us, healed us, helped us, and provided for our needs, just as He has blessed Israel, God will bless us for our faithfulness.
 
Thankfulness is one of the keys to living a blessed life, and we will not be thankful if we fail to reflect on His blessings. Remember, whatever you give thanks to will come towards us!
 
“From them will come songs of thanksgiving and the sound of rejoicing.”  (Jeremiah 30:19)
 
An Even Greater Miracle
 
Since the first coming of Yeshua (Jesus) 2000 years ago, God is performing His greatest supernatural intervention in our ministry, and in the nation of Israel right now before our very eyes!
 
During the time of Moses, God miraculously parted the Red Sea and delivered approximately 600,000 Jewish men out of that one nation.  If we include women and children, the exodus population was likely 2.5 million.  (Exodus 12:37)
 
In 1948, there were 800,000 Jews living in Israel.  Amazingly, and in fulfillment of biblical prophecy, over the last 73 years God has brought over 3,340,000 Jewish immigrants from 70 different countries back to their Promised Homeland of Israel by land, water, and air!  With population growth, today there are 6.9 million Jews in Israel.
 
This is an amazing miracle that fulfills so many Bible prophecies, which the Hebrew prophets uttered so long ago.  How many have longed to see their fulfillment and, yet, our generation is privileged to live in this prophetic time period!
 
“‘However, the days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when it will no longer be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but it will be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where He had banished them.’  For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors.”  (Jeremiah 16:14–15; see also Isaiah 43:5)
 
Who would have believed, even 30 years ago, that over a million Jews would come out of Russia into the Land of Israel, fulfilling the prophecies of Jeremiah and Isaiah? 
 
At that time, it was a Communist country and no one could leave!
 
Even today Israel we take the return of Russian Jews to Israel for granted, it is a miracle and the fulfillment of prophecy
 
Despite all odds, over 1.2 million people have come from the former Soviet Union, resulting in a 20 percent increase in Israel’s population.
 
The last state-organized aliyah (literally, going up) of over 9,000 Falashmura (Ethiopian Jews who were pressured to convert to Christianity in the 19th and 20th centuries) was approved. 
 

Other campaigns brought home 7,000 Ethiopian Jews with Operation Dove's Wing in 2013; 14,000 with Operation Solomon in 1991; and 8,000 with Operation Moses in 1984.
 
This, too, is in fulfillment of end-time Bible prophecy.
 
"In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to bring back the remnant of his people — those who remain in Assyria and northern Egypt; in southern Egypt, Ethiopia, and Elam; in Babylonia, Hamath, and all the distant coastlands."  (Isaiah 11:11)
 
In the last few years, record numbers of Jews have made aliyah to Israel from the Ukraine (due to instability caused by war) and from France (due to rising anti-Semitism and violence).
 
This year, 4000 Jews from the United States received their Israeli citizenship upon moving to Israel.
 
Thirty years ago there were 3.5 million Jews in the Greater New York Area and only three million here in Israel.  
 
Today, there are about 2 million Jews in New York City and over 6.9 million here in Israel!
 
Also in 2021, more than 500 Jews from South Africa moved to Israel, the highest amount since the end of apartheid in 1994.
 
In total, aliyah increased by 31% in 2021, with more than 22,000 Jews moving to their homeland.
 
Surely these are signs that we are in the end of days, approaching the return of the Messiah.
 
 
A New Beginning for the State of Israel!
 
I also believe God is giving us a New Beginning in our ministry!
 
“Who has ever heard of such things?  Who has ever seen things like this?  Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment?  Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.”  (Isaiah 66:8)
 
The Prophet Isaiah asked, “Can a nation be born in a day?”
 
As unbelievable as it seems, the answer to that question is a resounding yes!  The nation of Israel was born in one day on May 14th, 1948.
 
Today, Israel is made up of Jews from about 70 different nationalities.  Nine out of every 10 Israeli citizens are either a first or second generation immigrant.
 

Furthermore, the survival of the Hebrew language and Jewish culture is absolutely incredible considering the fact that it generally only takes about two generations in a new country for the language of one’s country of origin to be forgotten.  Israel was dispersed to the nations for an astonishing two thousand years!
 
Before Israel became a state in 1948, God raised up a man by the name of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda who resurrected Hebrew as a spoken language in the late 1800s.
 
At that time Hebrew was only used in synagogues and for religious purposes. Today, however, Hebrew is once again the spoken language of the people in Israel.  Even Arab Israelis speak Hebrew. Thank God the Hebrew Roots of the Christian faith is growing more and more in the Body of Christ!
 
The Desert Blossoms
 
“The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. ...The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God.”  (Isaiah 35:1–2)
 
Believers in Yeshua around the world, and the People of Israel are living a modern miracle of God!
 
Even the land of Israel itself is experiencing revival.  Israel has the highest per capita percentage of agricultural production.
 
The Prophet Isaiah said that the wilderness will blossom and rejoice once again, and that the glory of Carmel and Sharon will come to the Arava (desert).  (Isaiah 35:1–2)
 
This prophecy is being fulfilled literally as the crops once grown in the fertile northern Carmel and Sharon regions of Israel are now also being grown in the southern Negev Desert.
 
The world has struggled with the problem of desertification over the past 60 years.  The reverse trend is happening in Israel.  Israel’s deserts are actually shrinking as they produce olives, grapes, pomegranates, and other crops.
 
 Streams in the Desert
 
“Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.  The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs.”  (Isaiah 35:6–7)
 
Isaiah prophesied that water would "gush forth" in the wilderness and streams would flow in the desert.
 
This is good news since the Negev covers at least 55 percent of The Land.  That’s about 4,700 square miles (12,000 square km).
 
This desert is rocky with dusty mountains, crater-like makhteshim (box canyons), wadis (dry riverbeds that bloom briefly after rain) and deep craters.
 
The word Negev (Modern Hebrew) is Negheb in the Hebrew Scriptures.  It comes from a Hebrew root meaning dry and is also used in Scripture for the direction south.
 
Several years ago, a man approached the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) with what seemed to be a crazy scheme to dig for water in the high plateau area of Ramat HaNegev.  He was turned down.
 
This plateau area is between 370 and 520 meters above sea level with extreme temperatures in summer and winter.  It gets 100 mm of rain per year.  The soil is considered inferior and partially salty.
 
Undeterred, this man invested his own money to dig 600 meters underground.  He said that when he finally hit the underground aqueduct, the water gushed 60 meters into the air!
 
Today, at the Ramat HaNegev site, dates, pomegranates and grapes grow next to a lake.
 
Israel is even seeing successful fish farms, quite often Tilapia, established in the Negev.  Fish farms in a desert—now that's incredible!
 
Hidden Treasure
 
“They shall call the people to the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck [yanak-nurse] of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hidden in the sand.”  (Deuteronomy 33:19)
 
It has been said in the past that the only natural resource Israel possesses is the Jewish mind.  This is simply not true anymore.
 
A few years ago, Israel discovered 122 trillion units of natural gas off the Mediterranean Coast.
 
And due to the ingenuity of Israel’s desalination water plants, more than a quarter of Israel's water supply for its citizens is desalinated.
 
This means that not only will Israel be independent for her oil, gas and water needs in the near future, but also she might even become an exporter of these precious resources to the world.
 
In fact, an Israeli company opened the “largest desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere” near San Diego, producing 190 million liters of water daily to aid in California's historic drought.  (JPost)
 

David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, publicly pronounced
the Declaration of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948 in Tel Aviv.
 
 
Can These Bones Live?
 
“And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way.”  (Isaiah 35:8)
 
Isaiah speaks not only about the physical revival of the land, but also a spiritual revival of the people.
 
All the prophets of God promised a spiritual restoration for His people Israel (that’s you and me) will be even more exciting than this amazing physical resurrection of the Land.
 
The prophet Ezekiel said that after God brings us out of the nations and into our Land, He will cleanse us from our filth, our sin, and our idols — and He will sprinkle clean water on us, and we will be clean.  (Ezekiel 36:25–28)
 
One of the most dramatic prophecies of this restoration is the vision of the valley of dry bones:
 
“Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!  This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.  I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life.  Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”  (Ezekiel 37:4–6)
 
 
The Jewish people who have moved to Israel, are the dry bones that have come to life as the Nation of Israel, from all four corners of the earth.
 
But Israel and the Jewish people still need the breath of God—His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit)—they need Yeshua as he said: “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.”  (John 11:25)
 
As 2022 is around the corner we wish you a new year filled with promise and hope.
 
 
And now as 2021 winds down to a close, please help our ministry finish on a strong note and prepare for a successful New Year of sharing Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah in 2022.
 
P.S. Save on your 2021 Taxes
Give a Gift that will last for Eternity. 
 
Please ask the Ruach HaKodesh/ the Holy Spirit what amount to give.
Remember there is a Biblical promise when you bless God’s work on the earth!
 
Proverbs 3:9-10
Complete Jewish Bible
9 Honor Adonai with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your income.
10 Then your granaries will be filled and your vats overflow with new wine.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile."  
(Romans 1:16)
 
 We pray abundant blessings for you, and your families for your faithfulness, and for your support to our ministry to return to you, and your household a thousand-fold return! Amen !
Love & Blessings to all in 2022/5782
