HEART OF G-D MINISTRIES is actively engaged in sharing the Good News in Israel to people from all walks of life, promoting Aliyah (the Biblical return of the Jewish people to Israel), helping to plant Messianic Congregations, and encouraging and equipping Christians to fulfill their Biblical calling toward the Jewish people.
Richard Hyde is the director of Heart of G-d* Ministries. He and his wife, Carolyn, have planted congregations and ministered in the US and Germany since 1990. Now that they have come home to Israel and have become Israeli citizens, they have helped to launch two new Messianic congregations and are currently helping to plant a new work in the Jordan Valley, the very place where Yeshua (Jesus) began his ministry.
G-d promises that after the Jewish people would return to Israel, He would “sprinkle clean water” on them, give them “a new heart,” and put His Spirit within them (see, for example, Ezekiel 36:24-28).
In fulfillment of G-d’s Word, for the first time in centuries, the heart of the Jewish people is beginning to open to their own Messiah. At the same time, G-d is opening the eyes of many Christians to understand their calling toward the Jewish people. Our heart is to see the Jewish people embrace their Messiah, and for Christians to fully understand and actively participate in what G-d is doing in Israel.
* In both the Jewish and Christian traditions, the name of G-d is treated with honor and respect. In the Jewish tradition, in order to show respect, the name of the L-rd is written without a vowel. The idea is that if a document with His name on it is destroyed or deleted, His name will be spared because it was not written out fully.
