JUNE 2016


“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).

As the Summer arrives, and I contemplate yet another annual gathering with Margaret’s family later this month, the above verse comes to mind because of the many spiritual blessings bestowed on our immediate family for our conscientious decision to walk by faith, and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). After all, our family has been walking by faith for nearly two decades since we were commissioned to serve the emerging Messianic community. Along the sojourn, Margaret and I have modeled to our children what it truly means to walk by faith in total dependence upon our Heavenly Father for His provision. Our actions have spoken much louder than all the words we could have mustered. As a result, we have been blessed with children who love the Lord and in their own ways are seeking to serve the Almighty with their many talents and gifts.

Hence, the familiar expression, “An apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree,” has come to mind a number of times this past month, primarily because Margaret and I had the blessed privilege to attend our youngest daughter’s graduation at the University of Oklahoma. After six years in Norman, Maggie earned a Master of Arts degree in history, to compliment her Bachelor’s degree with a history major and Naval Science minor. Maggie fulfilled the requirements to be commissioned an Ensign in the United States Navy, and will commence her military service as a surface warship officer (SWO) at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Florida later this month. Needless to say, two very proud and patriotic parents beamed with joy, as our daughter repeated her solemn oath to continue the family tradition to serve, in her case, the armed forces of the United States of America.

Consequently, the influence of being raised in a ministry family, which appreciates theology and history, resulted in Maggie’s master thesis reflecting her interest in how the Lord used godly and sincere people in Great Britain to establish a framework for the return of the Jewish people to the Promised Land. As I read her thesis entitled, “Glory and Empire: The London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst the Jews and the Road to the Balfour Declaration,” I was reminded of God’s sovereign hands over the course of human events. In addition, Maggie gave me a copy of a 1956 book by Barbara Tuchman, entitled Bible and Sword: England and Palestine from the Bronze Age to Balfour, which added more detail to how the influence of the Holy Scriptures ultimately established the environment for the formation of the State of Israel. As a result, I have written an article entitled, God’s Patient Perseverance,” in order to encourage others to appreciate the Lord’s sovereign will over His Creation. After all in these tumultuous times, there is a tendency to forget that God is in charge, despite the attempts of “the prince of the power of air” to persuade the faithful otherwise (Ephesians 2:2). Let us never forget the following reality of the Messiah’s power and authority:

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Finally, your support of our mission is greatly appreciated, as we have established the Theological Defense Trust and the Prison Ministry Free Book Fund to write and disseminate our materials to those seeking balanced, scholarly, and loving perspectives on what we believe the Holy Scriptures describe is happening in this hour of restoration. Also, please prayerfully consider helping us with our new OIM Technology Fund! Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership in our efforts to produce sound teaching that we believe, in His time, will be critical for the emergence of the “one new humanity” (Ephesians 2:15) our Heavenly Father is bringing together!

“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-25).

Advancing His Kingdom, until the restoration of all things…

Mark Huey
