It hadn’t ever rained before, but Noah still built the ark

"God told Noah to build an ark…and Noah obeyed. Noah’s obedience would ensure him, his wife, his three sons—Shem, Ham, and Japheth—and their wives a place of safety. They would be spared the destruction that was about to rain down—literally—upon the earth. As he worked on the vessel, Noah preached righteousness to any who would listen. The response: ridicule, derision, mockery, and scorn.

Bible scholars tell us that before the time of Noah, it had not rained on the earth. The faithless were unable to accept by faith that God would fulfill His declaration—whether or not they knew what “rain” was. They had the choice to believe or reject…and the overwhelming majority chose unbelief and rejection.

When the Lord appeared to me when I was 11 after my father strangled me and left me for dead, I heard Him say, “Son, I love you and have a great plan for your life.” Like Noah, my word from God seemed impossible; I had a speech impediment, a stomach ulcer, hundreds of fears, and no self-esteem. But one word from Jesus changed my life forever. That was 8 million miles ago, more than 55 world leaders ago, more than 4000 meetings ago, and 47 books ago. That was four kids and nine grandkids ago. My ark was to hide in Jesus and obey His voice no matter what. God was greater than I thought, closer than I thought, more committed than I thought, and more ambitious than I thought.

Noah and his family obeyed the voice of God, the direction to enter the ark and be saved. Noah must have been quite an example to his sons who worked alongside their father to fulfill God’s directive. He obeyed despite the harassment. He had followed the instructions to gather the animals as outlined and see them safely inside. He had gathered food for the preservation of his family, all the while warning of the impending disaster. He was an obedient servant of Jehovah—the characteristic of a true servant of God.

Do you want to attract God’s favor in your life? Do you want to be like a magnet that draws good things from the Father? Do you want to be equipped to perform His work on earth? Do you want to activate the tools that will enable you to bless others? If you do, then you need to begin Living in the F.O.G. (Favor of God). Learn how you can get a copy of this life-changing book below with your gift for the Jerusalem Prayer Team today.

We have a huge opportunity right now to touch the world from the Holy City through the construction and equipping of our new Operations Center in the Jerusalem World Center. This will be the command and control center for everything we do, including organizing help for victims of terror, Holocaust survivors, and every possible need we can help meet. Our goal is based on the prophetic word of the Lord: “Comfort ye, comfort ye, My people, saith your God” (Isaiah 40:1).

So far 2,470 loving friends have given $246,980 toward the Operations Center on the Ambassador Floor (5th floor) of the Jerusalem World Center, but we are still $28,020 short of reaching this crucial goal. But I have some wonderful news to share with you. A dear friend and partner has agreed to match your gift! Whatever you give today will be doubled. If you give $100, it is like giving $200. If you give $500, it is like giving $1000. Please be as generous as you can when you send your gift.

The team that will operate and manage all of these outreaches (and more in the future) is being assembled. We have legal, management, property development, construction, programming and other staff—and they must have a place to work. The fifth floor of your Jerusalem World Center will be the Operations Center…but we must make this happen now so we can stay on schedule for everything that is to follow.
        For your gift of any amount…

We will send you this brand new Star of David bookmark.

Each time you see it in your Bible or the book you are reading, you will be reminded of your commitment to stand with Israel and the Jewish people in prayer.

        With your gift of $30 or more…

We will send you the bookmark and a copy of my book Living in the F.O.G. (Favor of God).

In this book I reveal the most important revelation God has ever given me—a truth from Scripture that revolutionized every part of my life…and can do the same for you.

If you are able to send a gift of $80 or more, we will send you the bookmark and an autographed hardback edition of the book.


Perhaps you would be able to do even more.
    For your gift of $1000 or more…

We will place your name or the name of someone you wish to honor or remember in the Hall of Righteous Gentiles in the museum.

In addition, we will send you the bookmark, a copy of Living in the F.O.G. and this large silver-trimmed Yemenite shofar. I have one in my office, and it is both a beautiful piece and a great reminder to pray.        
Remember that your gift today will be doubled by the matching gift offer to do twice as much to help us reach this urgent goal.
Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team today allows us to continue our work on the Righteous Gentile Heritage Center, to stand up and speak out for Israel, and to meet urgent humanitarian needs among the poor Jewish people living in Israel. Thank you so much for being part of this vital worldwide prayer movement.

Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah.
Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans"
