SHOW NOTES

Check out the news article in the local Herald Dispatch about the event and my talk.

News clipping from Melitz (1901) mentioning Nehemia Gordon’s Great Great Grandfather R' Baruch Netanel.

Translation: When the Lovers of Zion and the Zionists gathered for the annual meeting at the shul on Chol HaMoed Pessach, Gershon Epstein blessed ? the great rabbi here R' Gershon Mendel Ziv, the great rabbi the righteous teacher here R' Baruch Netanel for his exalted sermon in praise of Zion and the great rabbi R' Samuel Jacob Rabinovitz and handed over to me 50 kopeks for the good of the workers in the Land of Israel.

  1. Toda achi. It brought tears to my eyes. I long to return home, beautiful land of Israel that bears the Name of our Elohim! HaleluYAH. YaHUaH Eloheinu continue to bless you and keep you. Shalom

  2. Thank u for sharing on so many levels … May YeHoVaH continue to be, and to provide for all that you need, our precious brother/cousin/friend. And may He now powerfully draw and purify His people, that the Land may finally inherit ALL of her promises, which flow from His boundlessly beautiful heart of Love for ALL peoples.

  3. May it be Yah’s will that this generation would finally learn the lessons of why the previous exiles happened, in order that it might not happen again.

  4. I thank you for being so open and honest with your feelings. You paint wonderful pictures in my very soul! May YeHoVAH continue His Work in you. And as always praying for the peace of Jerusalem.

  5. Rich history told; and so much hope for the future of Israel. May many of us heed the Zionist call, both Jew and Christian. May Yehovah’s truth grow in our hearts, daily. And may we act to support Israel. Amen.

    • “But if ye return unto Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though your dispersed were in the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to cause My name to dwell there.” Nehemiah 1:9 (The Israel Bible™)

  6. I am so grateful that you share with us so that we can see the hand of God at work in your life that has allowed you to touch so many and literally change my life.

    Thank you and God bless you.

  7. Hey guys…cj here again with one more connection that Abba Father brought to my mind as I posted, regarding words from your “69th Anniversary of Israel” speech “quiet of Jerusalem shattered by thundering artilery & mortars”…

    The connect: while teaching school in the 1990’s, a wonderful student gave me a book written by his uncle who lived & survived by the grace of God as a child in war-torn South Vietnam, during the 60’s. The books title “Distant Thunder Hear My Cry”. It was a brief, heart-rending read of the horror & tragedy of war…told from the eyes of a child.

    Please pray night & day for peace in Jerusalem…and everywhere that mothers & fathers raise God’s beloved children.

    Much Shalom love to all,
    Cj

  8. Nehemiah, listening to your heart speech regarding the 69th Anniversary of Israel, Zionism, the Dead Sea Scrolls, & your Grandfather! Amazing! Wow! Holy wow!

    We want to thank you for all you do to help re-institute Abba Yah’s ancient path.

    We know your walk is important because God said to me, cj, shortly before sending us to Jerusalem, September 17, 2016,
    “I need you to help Me re-institute the ancient path.”

    Now today as I listen to your speech about about Abba Yah’s holy way of connecting our present lives to His-story of the past, these words captured me, slinging me back into my own past (paraphrased in part) “we were cut off from the world…the quiet of Jerusalem was shattered by thundering artillery and mortars…in them (Dead Sea Scrolls) we heard the distant echoes of an ancient time when the people of Israel dwelt in their land…at times it seemed not of distant past, but of pages of our own lives.”

    My past met this article head/heart on as my spirit leapt, remembering a night in the early 2000’s when the will of God called out to me in the quiet night as we tent camped alongside a lake that we called “the new Texas coast”.

    His words were poetic & soul stirring, “From a distant land so far away, I here the pounding of ancient drummers calling out my name”

    Shalom to the heart of every home,
    Cj & Randy Randolph
