Revival Comes Through A Remnant

Morning Thought: God uses a remnant to usher in revival. We see this in the life story of Eliezer Ben-Yehudah, who lived from 1858 to 1922. Ben-Yehudah had a vision of reviving the Hebrew language. At the time, only pockets of people spoke it. So what did he do? He only communicated to his son, Ittamar Ben-Avi (Ben-Zion), in Hebrew. His wife joined him in this endeavour though at times struggled. It started with one…then two…soon three. Within a generation, not only was the Hebrew language revived, but the whole nation of Israel was reborn. For those who long for a Scriptural revival within God’s people, let’s remember this story and the power of a seed. “For there will be peace [shalom] for the seed: the vine will yield its fruit, the land will yield its produce and the heavens will give their dew; and I will cause the remnant [sh’eyreet] of this people to inherit all these things” (Zechariah 8:12, NASB).

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from six to twenty. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people.
