Dear OR TZION family & friends,
“Shalom shalom.” May the perfect peace of G-d our Father be yours in our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah.
This letter is an account of miracles, great and small which, I pray, will be a blessing and an encouragement in your life.
“Anna, let’s do it. Its time!,” my husband said, ever so suddenly. “Its time to move to Israel!” In that short instant my world changed from ordinary to glorious. We were leaning against our car in the driveway, sipping ice-tea on a warm September evening in Dallas, when this extraordinary miracle occurred -- my husband making the decision for our family to make Aliyah.
For this I had prayed to G-d for 10 years. I might as well have asked to take us to the moon. But I believed G-d and desired to obey His command -- “Set up waymarks for yourself, make yourself guideposts; consider well the highway, the road by which you went. Return, O virgin Israel, return to these your cities.”1
On May 10th, 1980, one day before receiving my Associate Degree at Dallas’ "Christ for the Nations Institute”, an aeriogram came with Jerusalem on its front. It said: “Thus says the Lord: WAIT! Wait for your husband... your call is not without him...” I had been ready to go and serve the Lord willing to give up everything to obey Him. Oh, I was so ready... I thought. But over 3,000 miles away, in the land of my heart’s desire, G-d moved upon a man I had met only once before when he spoke at Christ for the Nations about his life and service in Israel. The Lord instructed him to write me on this paper featuring Jerusalem, and tell me to wait and pray for my husband. We were called together.
But nothing in my husband changed concerning Israel. He was an “All-American boy”. He was not about to move anywhere. He liked it just fine where we lived!
In February of 1982 Chuck Flynn, a well-known prophet, taught at our Church. His custom was to prophecy over people after teaching. He pointed to my husband, “You, brother, with the beard, stand up, please.” My husband arose. “Is your wife with you? Please, stand also.” The moment I arose Chuck Flynn broke out into mighty praise of G-d, “O the beauty of husband and wife, flowing together in the anointing!” Then he continued, “My son, the peace that I have given you, and the authority and that visison!”2
“And my daughter, yeah, the authority that I have given - you shall flow together, and I am weaving your hearts together; for you are joint-heirs together of the graces of life.”
“Therefore your prayers will not be hindered and that which - yeah - is working within you: that fresh vision, that fresh glory of authority!” He said much more - things of the present of which he could have no knowledge unless they were shown him; things pertaining to the future; the promise of victory and of “... that anointing of the Lord Jehovah!”
Since Chuck Flynn’s words until this particular evening in 1986, nothing much indicated a fulfilling of this prophecy. It seemed as far away as ever. Yet suddenly -- there it was! The Lord had moved upon my husband’s heart -- and he was ready to obey!
For many years I had desired for my husband to become a “true man of G-d.” Of course, only in the sense of what I understood a “true man of G-d” to be. It escaped me, how G-d always moved us together, and never did anything in my life apart from my husband.
When the Lord prompted me to look for a Bible School “...because," He said, " it was time to start running the race, to aquire skill in rightly dividing My Word and to guide My sheep with a skilful hand,” He also defined the conditions by which the school would qualify as the right one for me: 1) it had to be in active support of the nation of Israel and involved in ministry there; 2) the curriculum was to be not only theoretical, but also provide immediate practical application; 3) my children were to come with me; and 4) my husband had to bless it.
I wrote to many Bible Schools all across the nation, “willing to go wherever He would send me.” But my husband never gave his blessing. The last school I wrote to was this “Institute” in Dallas which had been mentioned to me by three different ministries. I imagined it to be the least and the lowest where I probably would not learn much. When the Institute’s brochure arrived, I did not even bother to read it. My husband, however, when home from work, plunged into his easy chair, saw the brochure and began reading in it. On his way to the shower he said, “If you go to that school, you have my blessings.” I raced to read the brochure.
It fulfilled all four conditions.
During my second year at Christ For The Nations, I besought the Lord to show me how my husband would serve Him, that I could be more sure of our united calling. The Lord gave me Isaiah 60:5, and said that my husband was His chosen vessel to turn the wealth of the Salt (Dead) Sea over unto Israel. Then He gave me Exodus 31:1-5, and 35:30-34 and said, that He had given my husband the anointing of Bezalel son of Uri son of Hur3. He then instructed me not to say a single word about this to my husband. I would know this as a word from G-d by the way He would guide my husband. And the Lord’s first sign would be an immediate manifestation of the anointing.
And so, it happened at my husband's place of work. From then on he could solve problems no one else could, and seeing mistakes immediately while others worked for hours to no avail. It was truly amazing!
As soon as my husband gave me his blessings to attend Christ For The
Nations, the Lord opened a door for him to go to College. We both began
our studies in the fall of 1978, and the Lord provided the finances as
well as the car I needed to drive to the Institute and back. But if I tell
you all these little miracles, how will I ever get to the big ones I feel
led to share with you?!
