Blog 8 - Up To Jerusalem

Part 8 Blog – Israel – Up to Jerusalem   Hello friends and intercessors, Much has happened since my last update so it’s time once again to talk with you. My friend’s BNB was officially closed on July 25th. She has moved to a new smaller place in a great neighborhood in Jerusalem about one kilometer from the hotel where she has started a new career. For my part it was difficult to find a furnished apartment for one month. Most owners want long term for a minimum of one year. So......

Part 7 Blog - Israel - Up To Jerusalem

Part 7 Blog – Israel – Up to Jerusalem   Hello friends and intercessors, Isaiah 43:19 is becoming clearer for Arad……………….. “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth, shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”. We are not to do things done in the past concerning the lives and traditions of His people………………but a new thing – a move of His Spirit that......

Part 6 - Up to Jerusalem

Hello friends and intercessors, This is the latest update to the Up to Jerusalem Journey.  I arrived in Tel Aviv on June 8, 2017.  A dear friend picked me up at the airport and drove me Up to Jerusalem. Upon arriving at the BnB in Jerusalem that afternoon, I settled in and later went to dinner in the Old City with my friend. Another friend joined us there and the conversation immediately moved toward the Lord and His purpose for our being there. That night the city was still celebrating Jerusalem Day......

Part 5 Blog – Israel – Up to Jerusalem

Hello friends and intercessors, This is the latest update to the Up to Jerusalem Journey.  Somethings have changed slightly as God continues to reveal His plan for me and those concerned in Israel. I was able to negotiate my rental lease here in Colorado. They pro-rated my last month’s rent and  released me from the two month rental payment for breaking a lease. This helps me to leave for Israel the first week of June which is my new plan. Two things have happened in Israel that speed things up a bit.......

Part 4 –Rich’s Israel Trip – Clarifying the Vision-Up To Jerusalem

The recent trip to Jerusalem was quite different from the trip in October/November of 2016. Arriving at the BnB where I stay while in Jerusalem, my hostess greeted me at the door being very sickly. A new guest was also in the house a pastor from South Korea. A few days later we all celebrated a Shabbat dinner at the BnB with two Jewish couples (unbelievers), some missionaries from Taiwan, Japan, and the South Korean pastor. A few days later we found out that Tikva my hostess, had pneumonia. She remained resting......

Part 3 –Rich’s Israel Trip – Casting the Vision-Up To Jerusalem

As I write this portion of the “Up To Jerusalem” vision I am looking at a scripture given to me by a friend in our congregation. It comes from Ezra 1:3 “Who is among you all of His people? May His God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God) which is in Jerusalem.”  This is a word of Cyrus king of Persia to all the nations as God commanded Cyrus to build......

Part 2 –Rich’s Israel Trip – Casting the Vision-Up To Jerusalem

So much is happening – so quickly. To that I say, I am not in a hurry and neither is the Lord because all things happen in His time frame if there is such a thing. We are the measurers of time – He takes it or makes it for us. In this we learn patience and endurance, in being patient. My spirit is excited and my soul is curious as to what my spirit is doing? I am going with my spirit on this one “For as many as are led......

Part 1 – Up To Jerusalem – Casting the Vision

First of all I want to thank all those who gave financially as well as all those who faithfully interceded for me on this trip. As you may recall, I had a personal agenda for this trip which God compelled me in the Spirit to lay aside and follow His leading day by day. I humbly obeyed and below find some of the results. You may remember, much of my focus was on the previous work in Ashkelon some 12-15 years ago. And now God was clearly speaking that I was to......
