In this Shabbat’s Torah, in Genesis 26 we read God’s intention to proclaim the Gospel to the gentiles through Israel the messenger nation and guardian of God’s Word. Also in this week’s prophetic portion in the Book of Malachi, there is another prophecy that gentiles will worship the God of Israel:

“From the rising of the sun to its setting My name shall be great among the gentiles, and in every place worship shall be offered to My name… for I am a great King, says YHWH of hosts, and My name inspires awe among the gentiles.” [Malachi 1:11, 14b]  

Malachi’s prophecy is indeed coming to pass because multitudes around the world call upon the Lord Yeshua. From the very beginning of God’s election of Abraham, the Lord envisioned the salvation of the gentiles  – through the conduit of Israel and the promised Messiah (Gen. 12:3b).
In the meantime, we believers are engaged in battle for truth as never before in our lifetimes. Let us run to the battle while we have our strength!
And I am delighted that God does also chose and use women in this End-time battle.
Therefore, I am so glad to share with you this week a quote and observations from a female member of my family:
Hebrew midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, disobeyed the Pharoah because they feared God more than man. For the obedience, God not only spared Moses to deliver his people but he also honored these women with families and children of their own. As women, they were given great distinction because they alone are named in the first chapter of Exodus, an honor since not even the name of the pharaoh is provided in the whole story. What I loved was how the Pharoah underestimated the women, saying all the sons must be killed but to let the daughters survive.  It was the women whom God chose to help deliver the deliverer of the Hebrew slaves.
We affirm this week along with Intercessors for Israel,
Lord, as we see the chaos and confusion and fear in today’s world, we still believe that You are in control; that You have a plan and will save multitudes – for Your glory’s sake.  (Psalm 46:1-3, 6-11).
Thank you for joining with Jerusalem Channel to preach the Gospel and reach the world one soul at a time via the media. When Jesus told us to go into all the world, he surely envisioned  the worldwide web and all the media platforms in the Last Days. Thank God for his strategies which never cease until the last gentile is brought into the fullness of the Church Age.
Let us be responsible for bringing in the last Gentile sheaves:
“Bringing in the Sheaves” was written in 1874 by Knowles Shaw,  inspired by Psalm 126:6,  “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” 
Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze;
By and by the harvest, and the labor ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
