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).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re 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. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
