Dear Partner, 

Each year, beginning in 2013, we’ve asked the Lord to give us HIS Promise for the upcoming year. This is based on several verses:

Isaiah 45:11— "Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: 'Ask Me about the things to come ...'"

Isaiah 42:9-10—
"Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you. Sing to the Lord a new song, Sing His praise from the end of the earth!"

Then, by having His promises, knowing what is to come, what He has proclaimed, we then can individually and as a ministry, we can acknowledge this promise, and hear His voice clearly behind us as He leads us!

Proverbs 3:4-6—
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

Isaiah 30:21—
"Your ears will hear a word behind you, 'This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.'"

Psalm 23: 1-3—
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; HE LEADS ME beside quiet waters. He restores my soul.”

Take a moment to read this Year’s Promise and the promises we’ve enjoyed and have continued to build upon!!

2021 IWAH “I Will ALLURE Her”

Dear Partner, 

My life is riddled with calendar notifications, alerts, alarms, and every other means of reminding me of what I need to stay on top of. Yet I find it amazing or amusing that I don't believe I have any such way of reminding me to when the Lord gives me His promise for the upcoming year, which happens in September.

This time I heard, then felt a few words "I will allure her" a well-known verse in Hosea, which He pressed into my heart, making my eyes tear up and my heart began to swell—and in the next instant, I realized it was September. Since I am happily now by nature a fool "to confound the wise" I began asking Him what Promise He was giving us—not registering in my mind—that's just what He'd done!

What I heard Him say all day long "I will allure her..." before opening my saved verses or looking it up online, I heard... "Therefore, I will ALLURE her and speak kindly to her, I will remove the Baals [all her false god's] from her mouth. She shall be Mine."

Dear Partners, although I believe each of us will be "allured, spoken kindly" to in 2021, I knew He was speaking of ALL the millions of women who will begin hearing Him call them. Hearing Him allure each of the millions of hurting and broken and confused women coming to us. Giving us the privilege and honor for us to share the GOOD NEWS—He will be her Husband and Bridegroom, she, His bride, His betrothed. And from now on, He will care for her, and instead of tears or waling she will sing! 🎶

The next morning I couldn't wait until He led me to read the verse. Surprisingly it began with a version I don't normally read, then to my familiar version, ending with a third (a strong 3 Cord)—each time emphasizing something wonderful that will be in bold and/or italics.

God’s Mercy on His People NKJV

"Therefore, behold, I will allure her, will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her. I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

“And it shall be, in that day,” says the Lord, “That you will call Me ‘My Husband,’ And no longer call Me ‘My Master,’ For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, “owner” (other god's who own you) And they shall be remembered by their name no more.

In that day I will make a covenant for them...To make them lie down safely.

“I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me In righteousness and justice, In lovingkindness and mercy; I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, And you shall know the Lord.

“It shall come to pass in that day That I will answer,” says the Lord; “I will answer the heavens, and they shall answer the earth...They shall answer Jezreel (May God Give Seed).

Then I will sow her for Myself in the earth, and I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; Then I will say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people!’ And they shall say, ‘You are my God!’ ”

Restoration of Israel NASB

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Bring her into the wilderness And speak kindly to her.

“Then I will give her her vineyards from there, And the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will sing there as in the days of her youth, As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

“It will come about in that day,” declares the Lord, “That you will call Me Ishi And will no longer call Me Baali. “For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, So that they will be mentioned by their names no more... And will make them lie down in safety. “I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, In lovingkindness and in compassion, And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord.

“It will come about in that day that I will respond,” declares the Lord...“I will sow her for Myself in the land.
I will also have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion, And I will say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people!’ And they will say, ‘You are my God!’”

The Lord’s Love for Unfaithful Israel NLT

“But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there. I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to Me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt.

When that day comes,” says the Lord, “you will call me ‘my Husband’ instead of ‘my Master.’ I will wipe the many names of Baal from your lips, and you will never mention them again. On that day I will make a covenant...so you can live unafraid in peace and safety. I will make you my wife forever, showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion. I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as the Lord.

“In that day, I will answer,” says the Lord...And they in turn will answer, ‘Jezreel’—‘God plants!’

At that time I will...I will show love to those I called ‘Not loved.’ And to those I called ‘Not my people,’ I will say, ‘Now you are my people.’ And they will reply, ‘You are our God!’”

2020 FCBH “Faith Comes by Hearing”

Dear Partner, 

Not realizing it was September, my HH led me to move these Promises to their own web page, and as I was cleaning it up (which normally I would have simply assigned to our web team), I stopped for a second wondering if I was here because He was going to tell me what His promise was for this upcoming year. Only later did it dawn on me it’s September.

I paused a long time trying to figure out what this year's promise was because when He’s “given” them to me in the past—it’s always been a verse that I realize had been running through my brain over and over and over again. But I just couldn't remember any such verse. So I finished the page and decided when I knew, I’d come back.

Upon waking the next morning there was the verse!

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 KJV a verse that had been on repeat for weeks!

Why this is so significant is due to what’s been happening for the past several weeks (or maybe it’s been months). From the beginning, our ministry team has always worked together (from all parts of the world) by way of writing: emails, texts, all written comments as we collaborate. Then one day we began sending voice notes to each other, and it was a game-changer—hearing the excitement in each other's voices, besides realizing how quickly we moved through the process of working together was remarkable!

Next, the voice notes led to recording podcasts, where we were hearing testimonies and praise from each other. And seeing how powerful they've been, we are now hoping to convert our Be Encouraged video series into an audible version—so women can listen and hear encouragement as they travel or go about their day.

Then I realized we had just recently added the love songs for everyone to hear, and in Course 1, women can now hear chapters being read to them!

Romans 10:17 NLV—
"So then, faith comes to us by hearing the Good News. And the Good News comes by someone preaching it."

Isaiah 30:21—
“Your ears will hear a word behind you, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right or to the left.”

Proverbs 22:17—
“Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your mind to my knowledge.”

1 Corinthians 2:9—
“Things which eye has not seen (2020 vision) and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him."

Mark 4:20—
"And those are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold."

AMEN!!!

2019 ENT “Every Nation, Tribe”

Dear Partner, 

In September remembered to ask our HH to give us HIS Promise for the upcoming year. No one was surprised, and yet we were beyond OVERJOYED to read what He has promised!

Isaiah 49:6 MSG "I’m setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!” VOICE “ I will make you a light for the nations, and You will illumine them until My salvation reaches to the ends of the earth” and then also...

Revelation 7:9 NET Bible "After these things I looked, and there was an enormous crowd that no one could count, made up of persons from every nation, tribe, people, and language..."

All of us have watched our HH take two brides, Tara and Sara, to fulfill beyond our dreams C2Y “COME to meet so many of YOU” brides around the world— along their LAL Tour!!!! And then how He began doing the same with other members of our Ministry Team. How many of you experienced this in your own lives? Please share your Praise Report with us so we can celebrate our HH with you!!

2018 C2Y “Come to You”

Dear Partner, 

At the very same time, GOD was busy blessing many of our own families, He also gathered 2gether many RMIEW ministry members, meeting in South Africa, Japan, Nicaragua and even Paris, France!

Isaiah 60:4 NASB—

“Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you.

Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in their arms. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you.”

“Whereas you have been forsaken and hated with no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, a joy from generation to generation.”

praise will be on the lips of all who enter there.”

 

Isaiah 60:4 EXB—

“[Lift up your eyes and] Look around you.

    People are gathering and coming to you.

Your sons are coming from far away,

    and your daughters are coming with them [or carried on the hip; escorted by guardians].

 

Isaiah 60:4 VOICE—

Don’t be shy; don’t be doubtful; lift up your eyes and look around.

    They have gathered all around you, eager to come and be close to you.

And your children will come back to this land:

    your sons from the farthest places of wandering,

    and your daughters gently carried home.

 

Isaiah 60:4The Message (MSG)—

Look up! Look around!

    Watch as they gather, watch as they approach you:

Your sons coming from great distances,

    your daughters carried by their nannies.

When you see them coming you’ll smile—big smiles!

    Your heart will swell and, yes, burst!

Who did God cause to C2Y? If you’re not personally experiencing His promises, be sure you know Him as your HH. Find LOVE at Last! Sing Love Songs to Him, remain washed in His truths as a Restoration Fellowship Member.

2017 BNN “Brand New Name” 

Happy New Year Partner!

It doesn’t seem possible that it’s 2017 already—but here we are entering and embracing a New Year.

Just as Proverbs 31:10, 25 says, “An excellent woman, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels” “Strength and dignity are her clothing and she smiles at the future.” I believe due to our Heavenly Husband’s love; this is the woman we’ve each become, and that alone makes each year, each month, week, day, hour and moment something worth smiling about!

This year, 2017 is BNN brand-new name from Isaiah 62.

Isaiah 62—
“You’ll get a brand-new name straight from the mouth of God. You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God. No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined

You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight), and your land Beulah (Married), Because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration. For as a young man marries his virgin bride, so your Builder marries you, And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride, so your Husband is happy with you.”

This year’s promise is for us as a ministry—but it’s also for YOU. Take this to Him during a time of quiet and ask Him just how this applies to you and your life. Today, Dearest friend is the beginning of Him rebuilding you from the inside out—what as others see you differently, seeing you anew!

2016 EYT “Enlarge Your Tents”

Dear Partner, Happy New Year!! 

As many of you know, we asked the Lord for this year’s promise and was given EYT “Enlarge Your Tents” Isaiah 54:2 and already we are seeing so much expansion as we simply do so without any fear, just as it says in His promise!! Here is the full verse that you need to read and accept in your own life too!!

Isaiah 54:2—
“Enlarge the place of your tent; stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your pegs.”

“Fear not, for you will not be put to shame;

And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced;

But you will forget the shame of your youth,

And the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.

5 “For your husband is your Maker,

Whose name is the Lord of hosts;

And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel,

Who is called the God of all the earth.

6 “For the Lord has called you,

Like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,

Even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected,”

Says your God.”

Isaiah 54:2 The Message “Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!

Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities.”

“Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed.

    Don’t hold back—you’re not going to come up short.

You’ll forget all about the humiliations of your youth,

    and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory.

For your Maker is your bridegroom,

    his name, God-of-the-Angel-Armies!

Your Redeemer is The Holy of Israel,

    known as God of the whole earth.

You were like an abandoned wife, devastated with grief,

    and God welcomed you back,

Like a woman married young

    and then left,” says your God.

The Voice “Enlarge your house. You are going to need a bigger place; don’t underestimate the amount of room that you’ll need. So build, build, build. You will increase in every direction to fill the world. Your offspring will take over the nations; your people will revitalize long-abandoned towns.

Don’t be afraid, for there is no one to shame you.

    Don’t fear humiliation, for there is no one to disgrace you.

The shame of your younger years and the sorrow of your widowhood are over.

    You’ll forget those days as if they never happened.

5 Because the One who made you will be your husband;

    the One called Commander of heavenly armies

Will set you right again, the Holy One of Israel.

    It’s not for nothing that He is called “God of all the earth.”

6 For the Eternal has called you to come back home,

    like a young wife, once deserted and deeply injured.

Now God is pulling you close again. Like a spouse forgives,

    He will take you back and be reconciled.

The Eternal, your Redeemer, says this.”

2015 G2G Glory to Glory

Dear Partner, Happy New Year!! 

This year, 2015, is the year the Lord gave us G2G meaning Glory to Glory, take a look at what these linked verses say to get really excited.

2 Corinthians 3:18—

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”

2 Corinthians 3:18 Expanded Bible (EXB)—
“Our faces, then, are not covered [With an unveiled face…]. We all show [reflect; or behold; or contemplate] the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed [transformed] to be like Him [ into the same image]. This change in us brings ever greater glory [or is from one degree of glory to another; is from glory to glory], which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

And as the year of abundance, our  G2G Year, Glory to Glory year, the Lord led us to begin sending quarterly newsletters to you, our partners! 

2014 DB Double Blessings

Dear Partner, Happy New Year!! 

This year the Lord told us it will be a year of DOUBLE blessings or DB. Without researching this too much, probably because if we had the Lord knew we may easily approach the new year with trepidation, it wasn't until the last 3 months when we realized that He gives us DOUBLE due to sins or errors we fall into and also what others do TO us.

Isaiah 40:2—
“Speak kindly . . . And call out to her, that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed, that she has received of the LORD'S hand DOUBLE for all her sins.”

Isaiah 61:7-8—
“Instead of your shame you will have a DOUBLE portion, and instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion Therefore they will possess a DOUBLE portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs. For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery . . . And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them.”

This too proved to be true when we began experiencing a stalker who was relentless, which I wrote about in my Weekly "Living Lesson" Messages, the importance of leaving everyone alone "perchance" the Lord will look upon our afflictions and return good to us 🙂

2 Samuel 16:11-12—  “Then David said to Abishai and to all his servants, ‘Behold, my son who came out from me seeks my life; how much more now this Benjamite? Let him alone and let him curse... [Perchance] the Lord will look on my affliction and return good to me instead of his cursing this day.’ So David and his men went on the way; and Shimei went along on the hillside parallel with him and as he went he cursed and cast stones and threw dust at him. The king and all the people who were with him arrived weary and he refreshed himself there.’”

Now, based on what happened within the last 3 months of 2014—He did return good to us!! 

Isaiah 40:2—

“Speak kindly . . . And call out to her, that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed, that she has received of the LORD'S hand DOUBLE for all her sins.”

Ecclesiastes 9:18— “Wisdom is better than weapons of war…

NASB: but one sinner destroys much good.”

The Voice: yet one wrongdoer can undo much good.”

CEB: but one incompetent person destroys much good.”

DRA: and he that shall offend in one, shall lose many good things.”

ERV: but one fool can destroy much good.”

ISV: and a single sinner can destroy a lot of good.”

TLB: but one rotten apple can spoil a barrelful.”

NABRE: but one bungler destroys much good.”

Isaiah 61:7-8—
“Instead of your shame you will have a DOUBLE portion, and instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion Therefore they will possess a DOUBLE portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs. For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery . . . And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them.”

Ephesians 5:26-27—
So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.”

2013 NB New Beginnings

Dear Partner, Happy New Year!! 

Before the year 2013 began, He gave us Isaiah 45:11— "Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: 'Ask Me about the things to come ...'" So we believed 2013 to be the year of NB “New Beginnings”!

Isaiah 42:9-10—

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you. Sing to the Lord a new song, Sing His praise from the end of the earth!"

Isaiah 30:21—

"Your ears will hear a word behind you, 'This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.'"

Isaiah 48:6—

“I proclaim to you new things from this time, even hidden things which you have not known."
