Transformed before our very eyes!

 

Transformed before our very eyes!

It truly is miraculous, the changes that take place when a person comes to saving faith. Ezekiel describes the process for us:
 
Ezekiel 36:26  I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
 
The Lord and His angels see that miraculous transformation in us. Before that actual transfer from the darkness to light takes place, we can sometimes witness visible changes as an individual begins to open up to the truth. Recently, one of the teams saw a man’s hardened face transform into something soft and gentle, as he chose to listen to what we had to say. He went from a flat refusal of the Word to a grateful reception of the gift. Read more…


Knocking to Know

We won’t know what people, whether rich or poor, powerful or meek, are truly thinking until we knock.

Knock and Talk report
 
First team’s report:
Many were not home or did not open their doors. Nevertheless, we still gave out four sets. One woman seemed quite happy to receive a set. However, we had very little conversation at the door. Another woman took a set, thanked us, and said it was a very nice gift! Read more…


With God all things are possible

 

How fast can a prayer request be answered? Check out what happened in Daniel 9. Before Daniel even finished praying, the angel gave him an answer. Let us ask, in faith, believing that our prayers as well can be answered quickly, that joy would so soon fill the heart. That is what one team felt when they prayed for a  particular woman’s attitude to change. And God heard their pleas… when we pray to God, can we not expected the unexpected? With God, all things are possible.

Straight to The Heart

We always ask the Lord to walk ahead of us and to bring these people straight to their doors so that the Word may go straight to their hearts.

Montreal Report: May 6th, 2019

On this lasting outing, we were two teams of two.

Team One:
We met a woman at one door who had a big smile and chatty children in the background. Although busy, she took the set and asked if we wanted a donation. We assured her it was a gift to which she smiled and thanked us twice. She assured us she would read it. A second set was given to a caregiver who popped her head out of the door to say her client was sick in bed. She thanked us quickly and closed the door.
 
We offered a set to a young man who was amazed by what we were doing. He said he already had a set and we spoke about the rising anti-Semitism and the situation in Israel. The father then arrived and confirmed that they already had a set but thanked us for distributing the bibles.
 
We then met a lady who claimed to be 92 but looked much younger. She spoke about her loneliness and after giving her a set and taking our leave, we saw her eyes tear up. We asked if we could pray for her. She declined the offer but invited us in to see her poodle and share more. We then remembered her from a few years ago when she had previously accepted a set. She relayed to us about her granddaughter’s illness. She had flown to Florida to be by her bedside, so we were able to encourage her with the Word and how the Lord gives us peace in times of illness. We gave her verses from Isaiah that she might draw strength from. She offered us a drink and we said that perhaps we would be able to visit another time, and that we were unable to stay. Please pray for her daughter and her granddaughter. Read more…


Sliding Forward

 
Job 37:10 By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen fast.

But we continue to seek those whose hearts are willing to be broken and contrite before the Lord.

 

We are pleased to be back at the doors once again. Montreal experienced a lot of ice this winter and our streets were dangerous to maneuver. In fact it was reported that broken bones were sustained at a 60% increase this winter over previous ones. But we continue to seek those whose hearts are willing to be broken and contrite before the Lord. We are eager to share the Good News that could ultimately mend every shattered soul. With God all things are possible.

Revealing the Existence of the Messiah

 
Even when just the Tanak is given out (without the NT), we know that our Heavenly Father is fully capable of revealing the existence of the Messiah in the Tanakh to all who are thirsty for the truth. “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me”. John 5:46.
 
When we bring the message of Yeshua at the doorsteps of Jewish homes, we are ambassadors of His message. That message must be brought reflecting the character of the Kingdom. The fruit of the Spirit, love and joy, peace, patience and gentleness must describe our attitude of heart and mark our conversations. But in your hearts set apart Messiah as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…  1 Peter 3:15 Read more…


A Religion With Relationship

 
Is Christianity a religion? It’s religion with a difference. There is relationship. Yeshua doesn’t hate religion; what He hates is pretense and pride in that relationship.  Guard your tongue… that is religion. Look after the orphans and widows and keep from being polluted… that is religion (see the Book of James). Religion is not about that we have done or what we do, it’s about what He has done for us. Because of that, we are in an ever-thankful relationship with Him. Though we walk the street to give out Bibles, our walk with God contains the most important step of our lives- a relationship that changes the direction of where we’re heading.   Read more…


Being street wise on the road to Emmaus

Outreach Montreal

Due to the rain, we did not go out on October 28th. This past Sunday (November 4th) proved to be a much better day in terms of the weather. There was one team who had the privilege of giving out two sets and one all English bible. From those who refused the set, they all received the Isaiah 53 pamphlets which includes Talmudic references verifying the suffering servant motif of the Jewish Messiah.  For those who weren’t home we put the Isaiah 53 leaflets and the prophecy bookmarks into their mailbox.

If anyone would like to have this Isaiah 53 leaflet emailed to them, please contact us and let us know. Read more…



GOD’S WORD IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR HOME

Changing our presuppositions concerning

the rich and the religious.

Another blessed afternoon was spent last Sunday as we had one team going out into one of Montreal’s wealthier neighborhoods. An amazing correlation was noted. Twelve bible sets and one Tanach were given in just one day. Similarly, on a previous outing, the same number of Bibles was also given out in one of Montreal’s religious neighborhoods. We live with many presuppositions.  We would normally think that the religious and the wealthy would claim they have it all and don’t need to add anything else to their lives. And while that was the declaration of quite a few from both these communities, nevertheless, the greatest number of bible sets in the least period of time saw their way into so many of these same two communities. How do riches and religion get reconciled? How can we mix the two? 1Timothy 6:17-19 gives us the solution:

Instruct those who are rich in the present age not to be conceited and not to put their hope in the uncertainty of wealth, but in God, who richly provides all things for us to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works and to be generous and ready to share, treasuring up for themselves a firm foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.… Read more…


Capturing a portrait God has designed for our eyes

 
When life is a rush and we don’t take the necessary time to stop, admire and get refreshed, God uses signs to keep reminding us of this need. Fifty kilometers is your maximum, so slow down and soak in all the autumn hues. Going out on a Sunday afternoon has not only allowed us this privilege, but we were also blessed to give out 5 full sets, one English-only Bible and 4 New Testaments. Yes, dear readers, you read that right. Very often in our experience when full Bible sets are offered, some would take only the Tanach and refuse the New Testament. This past Sunday, there was a reversal in the trend. Four individuals said that they already had the Tanach, but not “that little one” (the New Testament is quite a bit smaller than the Old Testament) and so each of these 4 homes took just the New Testament.
