Isaiah 62
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


Psalm 122:6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you. 



Love For His People Ministries


Our good friend Steve Martin announced in December 2009 that he would be leaving Vision For Israel on July 1, 2010 - completing 5 years with the Israeli Based humanitarian aid organization founded by Barry & Batya Segal, to lead "Love For His People Ministries, a new ministry based in Charlotte.  Beit Yeshua is excited to be working with this wonderful new ministry.

Steve at the Vision For Israel offices in Charlotte, NC, in 2009

"Love For His People Ministries" (in Hebrew "Ahava le Amo") was established on November 23, 2009 to connect people who love Israel - so that together they can more effectively bless the people of Israel.  A primary focus of this "arm in arm" ministry will be to encourage, support and edify Messianic Believers in the Promised Land of Eretz Israel.  Seminars and Conferences will be conducted to teach about our spiritual and historic debt to Israel and the Jewish people.  The ministry will seek to teach youth to share the true perspective of Israel, in opposition to the current typical worldview, and to implant a love for Israel and His people in their hearts. There will be trips to the land for youth, parents and seniors.  These short-term ministry trips, to be known as "Ahava Adventures", will be to give Americans and others "hands on" opportunities and experiences; walk the land of Abraham, David and Yeshua (Jesus); to meet and encourage sabras (those born in Israel) and those who have made aliyah (immigrated to Israel).

Isaiah 40:1-5
“Comfort, O comfort My people,” says your God.  “Speak kindly to Jerusalem; And call out to her, that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed, that she has received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.”  A voice is calling, “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness; make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.   “Let every valley be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; and let the rough ground become a plain, and the rugged terrain a broad valley;  Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all flesh will see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

Beit Yeshua Erev Shabbat & Midrash

On Friday, July 23, 2010, Beit Yeshua met at Chuck & Janice's home for Erev Shabbat, Praise & Worship, Prayer, a Midrashic-style Bible study, and Oneg.  Doug leads our Midrash, serving as fascinator of the group discussion for the weekly portions.  It's definitely one of our favorite parts of our Erev Shabbat meetings.  There were 37 in attendance at this particular home meeting - a large crowd for a home group meeting.

Janice lights candles - setting apart the beginning of Shabbat


Paul says blessings over the bread and wine


Announcements and an extensive time of prayer



Spending time in praise and worship


Doug fascinates the Midrash Torah discussion - what a wonderful gift to our fellowship


Note the large mural of Jerusalem on the wall behind Christi & Doug in Chuck & Janice's home


The group listens intently and actively participates in the discussion on the Torah portion
"Va'etchanan" from Deuteronomy 3:23 - 7:11, Isaiah 40:1-26, Acts 3 - 5


Vat'etchanan ("And he pleaded") includes:
* the described failed effort of Moses to God to let him enter the land
*the Ten Mitzvot/Commandments as stated by Moses
*the Sh'ma which proclaims the oneness of God
*the duty to love God, study His torah and teach it to the children
*The mitzvot of the tefillin and mezuzah
*Moses' prophetic warning of the exile and the eventual redemption of Israel


Acts 3:19-21  Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Yeshua the Messiah appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which GOd spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.



The evening ends with Oneg - a time of food and fellowship






Beit Shofarot Torah Dedication Service


Beit Yeshua joined Beit Shofarot in China Grove/Landis, NC, on Saturday, August 7, 2010,

first stage of moving it to its permanent location - in the new Ark.  Rabbi Yossi carried the
Torah in a procession for the 1st lap of 7 Aliyah around the building.

Bill Cloud is recognized as one of the leading authorities on end-time events and the Hebraic study of Scripture and its relevance to the Believer.
Under the tutelage of a local rabbi, Bill began studying Hebrew and became prolific at reading and writing the Holy Tongue.  He has spent many hours studying, not only the Hebrew text, but the Hebraic roots of Christianity as well.  This research has been rewarded with a keen insight into Biblical Judaism and its relationship to Christianity.
Through Shoreshim Ministries, Bill and his family have launched an effort to reintroduce Christians to the Jewish Yeshua and to educate Believers in the roots of their faith.
Bill has appeared frequently on TV with Perry Stone and Zola Levitt.

Bill does a wonderful teaching that talked about Satan's attacks on people and groups from within


Adam failed to "shamar" (guard) the Garden of Eden - allowing Satan to enter and temp Eve






Bill Cloud's teaching at Beit Shofarot was awesome.
