    Grafted In

    Politically, the only part of Israel now permitted to return to our land to live (to make Aliyah) are the Jewish people. What the government of Israel doesn’t realize is that those of you who believe in Yeshua have also become Israel – you have been grafted in. After all, one day we will dwell

    Restoring the Ancient Paths

    Behold, I am bringing them from the north country, and I will gather them from the remote parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together; a great company they will return here.  With weeping will they come, and by

    Returning from the Four Corners

    Since the late 19th century, the Almighty has been fulfilling Biblical prophecy regarding the return of the exiles to Eretz Israel.  Our Jewish brethren have been returning from the four corners of the world, and Yeshua continues to call them out through many different circumstances and situations. In the early 1990’s, after decades of groaning

About Us

Believers around the world are awakening to the Creator’s will to “restore the ancient paths,” to bring His people back to the way of life He intended for us. An integral part of His original design was helping the poor, providing them with what they need to survive.

If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which Yahshua thy Elohim giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.”

– Deuteronomy 15:7-8

How Can You Help?

The heart of The Lydia Project is to fulfill the mandate of the Torah and the clear word given to the believer in the Brit Chadasha (New Testament), which is to help the widows, orphans, and poor in the land of Israel.  We have also discovered a great need among those who have made Aliyah to Israel and are believers in Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) or have become Believers since returning to the land.

For many years, more A Rood Awakening! supporters than Michael Rood can count have called and asked how they can help Israel.  They want to know how they can help the widows, the orphans, and the poor in the Land.

The Lydia Project has been set up by A Rood Awakening! International, and all funds raised are earmarked for the Land of Israel for the widows, the orphans, the poor, and the persecuted and forgotten Messianic Believers who need help so that they won’t be driven from the land they love.  In the last three years, The Lydia Project has distributed over $300,000 of your tithes and offerings. We need your help!

We are asking you for two things:  first, to pray about your part in The Lydia Project, and second, to pray about what you can pledge to help us, either as a one-time gift or, better yet, on a monthly basis.

Thank you for joining your tithes and offerings with ours as we fulfill this sacred mandate that is so close to the heart of our Creator who promises to bless those who bless Israel.

“Blessed is he that considereth the poor;  YHVH (The LORD) will deliver him in time of trouble.  YHVH will preserve him and keep him alive, and he shall be blessed upon the earth, and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.” – Psalm 41:1-2
