The Apostle Paul was used by God the Holy Spirit to spread the good news of the Church. Many in the early days of the Church suffered greatly and this is simply a matter of history. In all of his travels the Apostle Paul only collected money for one group and that according to I Corinthians 16:3 was for the suffering saints of Jerusalem where the Church began. The Churches of Macedonia and Achaia formed the backbone of this effort. As the Church age comes to a close and I Thessalonians 4:13-18 comes closer maybe it's time to one more emphasis the Jewish people and Jerusalem. I challenge you to make Jewish needs your priority in these last days of the Church age.
