Ministry Update from Bill
It’s been a while since I sent out an email — for that I apologize. So much has been happening so fast at Jacob’s Tent that Beth and I seldom have a chance to come up for air. We’re not complaining though — the Father’s is blessing our congregation immensely.
At long last, our teaching In the Footsteps of Abraham: From Babylon to Moriah is available for purchase as a DVD. This teaching has been posted in the Premium Video section at www.billcloud.com for several weeks now, but finally, we have hard copies available for purchase in our store.
In this teaching series, Bill follows the life of Abraham and patterns established in his life’s story. Beginning with the call to come out of Babylon, his sojourn in Egypt and the ultimate test at Mount Moriah, Abraham’s journey teaches us what it means to be “a living sacrifice.” In this series Bill explores the principles gleaned from the many tests presented to Abraham and what is meant by doing the works of Abraham.
Included in this teaching:
- The significance of the korban.
- Why Ishmael’s birth may have been the result of fear.
- What did Abraham see on the third day?
- Isaac as a picture of the Messiah
- MUCH MORE!

Beth and I certainly appreciate your support of Shoreshim Ministries. Your assistance has enabled us to continue producing teaching resources as well as allowing us to branch out and start Jacob’s Tent. As I’ve said before, even though the two ministries are separate entities, your continued support of Shoreshim plays a very important role in fulfilling our mission through both. One of the best ways that you can assist Shoreshim is by becoming a Premium subscriber at www.billcloud.com. If you haven’t done that, we hope that you will give it prayerful consideration.
Update on Jacob’s Tent
For weeks now we have been at maximum capacity at Jacob’s Tent. We are hoping that, soon, we will be able to remove a wall that will allow us to seat another 40 – 50 people. We are using every square inch of space and aren’t sure how much longer this building will contain us. All in the Father’s time; until then we are blessed to have what He has given us and will be content with it until He moves us in another direction.
If you desire to support Jacob’s Tent, you may send gifts to PO Box 3904, Cleveland, TN 37320, made payable to “Jacob’s Tent.” Online donations for the congregation can be made at www.jacobstent.org/support/. Remember: Jacob’s Tent and Shoreshim Ministries are separate entities. If you have any further questions about the matter, please let us know.
We’re very excited about our upcoming Passover celebration. It will be held at the Church of God of Prophecy Ministry Training Center, located at 3750 Keith Street NW, Cleveland, TN and will begin at 6:30 PM, April 8, 2020.
We will start with Praise and Worship with Brandon and Melody and begin our seder soon thereafter. The meal for the seder will be catered and everyone must purchase an advanced ticket.

A Great Big “Thank You”
