Prayer Letter – September 2013

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear Prayer Partners

What a delight to be part of the new Web page for the ministry of our Lord. Indeed a time of new beginnings. It is my prayer that you will be actively involved in your prayers for our brother Angus and the ministry to which the Lord has called him. I am convinced that you will be blessed when you see your prayers fulfilled and answered and see the reports on this new webpage. I welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

It is interesting to note that, according to the Old Testament, the New Year for 2013, in terms of the Hebrew calendar, commenced on the 4-6 September (6 hours on the 4th September – 18:00 to 24:00; and 18 hours on the 5th September – 00:00 to 18:00). In South Africa we celebrate Spring Day on the 1st September of every year. For the Hebrews it was the year of new beginnings and for us in the South Africa, it is the season of new life – the awakening from the death of winter. In the Kruger National Park it is the season of new birth for many animals. Let us pray that this will also be a time of new and greater things of God’s plan for our brother and for us that pray for him in particular.

At this very moment, Angus is waiting upon the Lord for a powerful, effective and ‘in season’ word for the Church that will gather in Israel for the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles over the period 20th – 25th September 2013. You will recall that this is an event that Paul the Apostle made sure to celebrate. On a few occasions he travelled all the way from Asia Minor in order to be in Jerusalem during this time. I have no doubt in my mind that God retained this event as a connection between the Jews and the Church for the purpose of offering His reconciliation in Christ Jesus to the Jews ( 2 Cor 5:18-19). Let us, therefore, ask the Lord to open the eyes of their (both Jews and Gentiles) understanding that they may know what is the hope of His calling. Let us also make intercession with Christ for the lifting of the veil that hangs over the faces of the people. Let us trust that the Lord Jesus will use this event for the honour and glory of His name.

Living in Him with you,

Leon Vermeulen
