Letter from Pastor Nick Plummer
Dear Mishpacha (Family)
As I am writing this newsletter, tonight will be the eighth and last night of celebrating Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a story that is not only historical but prophetic as well. We had a great time celebrating Hanukkah as a community and for a lot of our guests, it was their first time. The word “Hanukkah” means dedication and I want to personally thank the hospitality team led by Dee Cromwell for their dedication towards all of the food that they prepared for us. I would also like to thank my Hanukkah committee which consists of Pastor Russell, Joanne Cecere and Susie Pruitt for the dedication in making this year’s Hanukkah celebration one of the best. I know going back twenty-five years, Hanukkah was only celebrated by the Jewish people, but since then we are seeing a lot of non-Jews celebrating as well. This is truly a phenomenon throughout the world among the nations and the Jewish people are taking notice. In Romans 10:19 Paul says, “…I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation, I will anger you!” This is why the Vision of Beit Tehila is so important in these last days because I believe that Jews and Christians can work together. This last year was great but I believe this next year will be even greater and I am expecting a fresh glory experience with our Heavenly Father. Just before we celebrated Hanukkah, the President of the United States declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6th, 2017. President Trump’s position as Commander-in-Chief makes him the most powerful man in the whole world. Some have likened him to the Persian king, Cyrus, who issued a decree to have the Jewish temple restored and that is very interesting. President Trump also wants to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The church needs to wake up to the fact that they are grafted into the olive tree (Israel) and God is waiting for a right action and for all of us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Danielle and I want to thank all of you who share the Vision of Beit Tehila with us because we need each other.
As the Pastor of Beit Tehila, I feel it is my duty and responsibility to let you know what our Heavenly Father has put on my heart. In 1 Corinthians 12:14 Paul states, “for the body is not one member, but many.” Paul goes on to say in 1 Corinthians 12:18, “But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased Him.”
This year, I will be presenting a church membership program for those who wish to make Beit Tehila their church home. We are going to help you get connected to the body of Yeshua (Jesus) at Beit Tehila, so we can build a strong community and raise up the next generation. My goal is to work together and grow the Kingdom of God. More information will be coming early this year. Please be praying and anticipating great things for 2018!
