A Message From Jon

Shalom SearchLighters!

Like you, I too have a deep love for the nation of Israel.

And like you and the Apostle Paul, I too pray for the Salvation of that Nation (Romans 10:1).

In light of this, I want to share with you a recent interview that TBN television network did with my son Benjamin right there in the City of Jerusalem.

The interview is about 15 minutes long, done in a spectacularly beautiful setting overlooking that Holy City.

In the interview, the host Samuel Smadja brings up Ben’s just-released book entitled “Optimisfits.”

May I suggest your picking up a copy of this most hopeful and helpful handbook that’s focused on walking with Jesus in joyous victory day by day.

You can order a copy of Optimisfits on the link below.

And in so doing, you will be assisting its nation-wide launch that will ensure an even broader release in bookstores across the country.

(By the way, all royalties/profits go directly back into Hope Generation’s outreaches).

Please pray for the book to be used mightily.

And let us “pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” faithfully.

I’m praying for you with joy and thanksgiving continually!

Yeshua is Meshiach,

And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way. And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahai-roi; for he dwelt in the south country.
Genesis 24:61–62
Knowing that his father had sent the servant to find a bride for him, Isaac doesn’t go and look for her himself. According to Jewish tradition, the father would arrange the marriage of his son. Upon agreement of both fathers, the bride and groom-to-be would then be betrothed at a simple ceremony in which cups of wine were exchanged and a dowry was given. Then the son would return to his father’s house to build a dwelling place for his bride either close to or adjoining the house of his father. When the father deemed all had been properly prepared, he would send his son out to call for his bride - and she would run out to join him.

“In my Father’s house are many mansions,” Jesus, our Bridegroom, said. “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2–3).

When will this day be? “No man knows the day or the hour - not even Me,” Jesus answered (see Mark 13:32).

But this much is sure: Like the brides of old, when our Bridegroom calls for us, we will run to meet Him not in the streets, but in the air (1 Thessalonians 4).

Most of us are watching for the Lord. But there is something more important than that. That is, the Lord (as seen in the person of Isaac, being at the well of Lahai-roi, or “The Lord sees”) is watching for us. The Lord longs for us more than we long for Him. Why? Because while we can only speculate concerning the wonderful things God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9), He knows all about them and is eager to share them with us.
