Still in the Hospital for a few more days

Zola has had a few setbacks but nothing much to worry about. His heart is still doing well. They drained some fluid off his right lung, which also drained him of energy. But he is doing well and the doctors are very encouraged.

They are targeting for Saturday or Sunday as a possible release date, but naturally, that’s a hard thing to predict right now.

    We are still praying for you Zola. It looks like you are coming along really great. Sorry to hear that they had to drain fluid from your lung. We imagen that did not feel to good while the Doctors did that to you. But soon you will be on your way home and will forget about your hospital stay. You have alot of Christians praying for your healing. We need you more than you will ever know. The endtime are here and we need to hear your voice and keep us encouraged to “keep looking up” for Jesus to blow the trumpet and rapture us out of here. God Bless You always!!

    Hello Zola,
    I am sorry to hear you will have a couple days longer to stay in the hospital, praying you will have no more set backs….I know we are always anxious to get home, but it is better to be there where they can keep a close eye on you……Just take it one day at the time and try to enjoy the rest you are getting…..I know you are so proud of your wife and son….Mark certainly wrote a beautiful August letter…..He has had a good teacher.
    I just want to tell you Zola how much your teaching has meant to me….I am 80 years old now and have been in church all my life, but never really realized our Jewish roots until I found you in the early 1980’s and began sending off for your books, etc……Of course the Seven Feasts of Israel has to be my favorite…..I am still working my way through the Institute of Jewish Christian Studies, I have all 12 and am determined to finish…..I tape your program each week, so you can see you are an important part in my life.
    I thank God for the mark you have made in the Christian growth of so many…..My prayers are for you to gain more strength each day…..God bless you!

    Hi Zola, Sandra,Mark and staff: I am late in learning that Zola has already had his surgery and has come through it well. Praise God for bringing him through. Sorry to hear about the current set back but soon it will be history and he will go home to recover and prepare to be in transition to his normal regimen.

    I want to say that Zola’s program and ministry is so important to me. I always keep a couple of copies of the Levitt Letter in my tote bag so I can keep up on the articles when ever I have a few moments sitting in a restaurant or waiting in a doctor’s waiting room. Zola’s website is a blessing as well since it is a means for us to keep up with the ministry’s news and now with Zola’s progress following his surgery. My prayer for him is a complete recovery and God’s peace . I also pray that financial support will come in during this time…Your friend in Christ…Marietta Redman

    “By His stripes we are healed” Yeshua, Himself bore our infirmities and by His stripes we are healed (Isa 53:5). Blessed be His holy name. Jesus we trust in your Word. Zola “keeps your Word in the center of his heart and it brings healing and health to all his flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22). “Remember the former things, those of long ago; …There is no other God. There is none like You” (Isa 46:9). We do remember what the Lord has done for Zola in the past and believe that He is a God who will do it gain. Shalom to Zola and his entire ministry team, here and in Israel.

    Hello! I’m glad to know that you are doing well. A set back or two maybe, but you’re coming along well. I and my family do pray for you and your health. May God bless you with health and comeplete shalom even during this trying time. May your family and ministry be blessed. May you prosper as your soul and spirit prospers, in the name of Yeshua Ha Mashiakh, Amen.

    Shalom Zola: I’m sorry about your setback but after the bypass you had, a few more days of complete rest and a watchful eye in the hospital is probably a good thing. I’m continuing to pray for you and am so encouraged by your peace and courage. You are a living testamony to Jesus’ words, be of good cheer (courage) I have overcome the world. You have certainly been obedient to this command. Thank you for being such a wonderful example for all of us. I’m looking forward to you getting back to the ministry and your anointed teaching. Look up, your redemption draweth nigh. You’ll be back to work before you know it.
    Love and prayers

    Dear Zola,
    I check the website each day in hopes of an update. Hope you regain your strength soon. Praying for you, Sandra and Mark.

    We love you Zola. There are so many that have been blessed by your love of God’s Word. We all thank you for your faithfulness. We are all lifting you up, knowing that the Lord has heard us. May your recovery be quick and your joy be full. May the Peace of the Lord rest upon you and your House.

  11. Mary Jane Says:

    Thank you for continuing to keep us informed of Zola’s recovery. I will continue to check daily and pray for Zola’s steady and sure recovery.

  12. Jim Willis Says:

    We are praying for you Zola (also Sandra and Mark) When your Dad is in hospital one does get concerned, but that means to pray more – worry does not help – look at Daily Bread for today!

    God Bless….

    PS: We still remember our trip to Israel in Spring 2002 !!!

    Anxious to hear today (Saturday)-
    Praying for all of you. Zola, you
    are such an inspiration!

  14. Bob [Elishama] Says:

    Sorry to hear about your physical problems, & the need for surgery. By your character & humility, one would never have known of your condition by watching or listning to one of your broadcasts. You’ve played a major part in pulling down spiritual stronghold’s against Israel & the church body, by proclaiming the Gospel Of Jesus Christ with your anointed and insightful teachings, tours, etc & have many more “trumpets” to sound for all to hear if The Lord Tarries.

    God bless you with a speedy & miraculous recovery:

    One Of Your Miscopah In Christ/Messiah;

    Dearest Zola: How I have prayed for you! All of these many years you have been such an inspiration and teacher. God has so much more for you to do, and I will be waiting and praying to see you once again.
    Rest in the Lord. I will continue to pray and seek the Lord’s face concerning your improving health.
    What a joy to hear you teach the True Word of the Lord and to listen to the music He has given you!

    In Yeshua’s name,

    Toni Maturo

  16. Harold Munson Says:

    Dear Zola, What a privilege we have to go directly to the Creator on your behalf. We love to ask Him, as a child asks a father, to restore you soon to excellent health that you may continue His work. We have grown to love Israel through your ministry and hope to visit there soon. May God continue to bless you and yours. Harold and Sarah Munson

  17. Aaron Reynolds Says:

    Shalom My Brother,
    You are such an inspiration to so many. God blesses us through you. I look forward to walking the streets of Jerusalem one day with you. I learned to love the Jewish people through my dear Mother. So when I found you teaching the same things she taught, I learned to love you.
    Thank you for your teaching, for your music (She was a musician too) for following the Holy Spirit. Thank you for reaching out to a world hungry for the truth.
    Where I grew up (and I’m older than you) We used an expression of Blessing very applicable
    now, “Bless Your Heart” from the depth of mine.
