We see a prophetic timing in God’s last generation which brings Jews and Christians together as “One New Man” in Jesus (Yeshua). This prophetic merger explains many of the geo-political events of this day, especially in contrast to the rise of radical Islam.

Our task is to help others see this and understand what believers ought to do, thus participating in the fulfillment of His plan.

Our method is by following the example of Elisha who could “see” the spiritual dimension when others could not. We endeavor to open eyes to the fact that “more are they that are with us than they that are with them.” This is primarily working with leaders to provide “seed to the sowers” regarding our critical union with Israel in God’s final purpose of restoration.

Our support for Israel is first and foremost for the eternal purpose of God for His people and His Land through many unconditional promises. Our support begins by standing with the believers in the Land. Many Israelis have come to believe in Jesus as the Messiah. We choose to stand foursquare beside them in these difficult days. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, knowing that the only true peace is in Yeshua ben Yehovah. We pray for the government, knowing that many of its leaders do not know God, but we believe that God is the one who removes and sets up kings. Jesus died for all men, and we therefore pray for the salvation of all the neighbors of Israel as well, while still recognizing God’s unique prophetic relationship to Israel.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. Ephesians 2:14-16

Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 2 Corinthians 8:10-11

Doreen and I have a “niche” ministry. By that, I mean we have a unique calling to a singular lane of ministry. I see my assignment as a “voice of Christian Zionists.” My hope is that my blog and my YouTube videos will supply you with seed about God’s faithful promises made and promises kept in the restoration of Israel today. You may not have time to spend 40+ hours a week keeping up with prophetic developments, but that is my calling, to sum it up for you. We are also on Facebook and Twitter.

Ephesians 2:11-22

Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh–who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands– that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Leviticus 19.33-34: When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
It is easy to see the East as “backwards” and the West as “correct.” It is easy just as Said says, to romanticize about the East and to consider there ways not fitting to our cut-throat Capitalist world. Yet Jesus would not go into an indigenous people’s land and commit genocide and other acts of hate to throw them out.
Correct me if I’m incorrect, but Christian Zionists believe that once Israel has been “conquered” by Zionists, Jesus will come again? In the Bible it states, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” in regards to the coming of Jesus.
As a Catholic, I agree with the Catholic Church in that peace cannot be settled without compromise. “There cannot be peace without justice, and there cannot be justice without forgiveness”, says the Pope. What the Pope has said reflects Jesus’ teachings of love and forgiveness of all “backward in thought,” black, white, etc.

Thank you so much for writing. I encourage you to read Ezekiel 36, especially the first half. The prophet’s assignment was to go around the land of ancient Israel and “prophesy” to the land itself: the mountains, the hills, the rivers, the valleys. My whole understanding changed when I paid special attention to taking it literally. Pay close attention to when he was “speaking to the dirt” and then the second half where he speaks to the people. My conclusion is that God has made a land covenant that He will keep for Israel whether they deserve it or not. God will extend His mercy in due season. The Gentiles have had 2,000 years to accept or reject Jesus while Jewish eyes were blinded. Now, at the end of history, they have a little while to consider whether Jesus really is their Messiah.

I am coming in late on this conversation, but with so much happening in the Middle East right now I had to respond.(Mr. Lawrence please feel free to delete this post if necessary.)

I am also Catholic, however we have to read the scriptures for ourselves….it is clear in them that the whole world will come against Israel in the end times. We are certainly in the end times right now.

I am Very concerned also with the recent call from the Vatican to establish a global banking system! This would further push us into the one world government/one world religious system. The current Pope certainly needs prayers for him to see that though this plan is put forth with good intentions, it is actually a Horrible idea.

If one believes any of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary, there was one in LaSalette France in the 1800’s. She wept throughout the message she gave, part of which was that a time would come when the Catholc Church would be in eclipse. If the leadership of the Catholic Church is pushing for a global system of Any kind, I would say the time of eclipse is very possibly the days we now live in.

There can be no true compromise for ‘peace in the Middle East’ when the only concessions are supposed to be on Israel’s side. The surrounding nations will Never be satisfied until Israel is wiped out completely! Thank God He will Never let that happen!

” Who is Jesus?” This is “THE” defining question for all breathing human beings. God the Father gives Grace to the humble but opposes the proud. No one can come to Jesus unless The Father draws them by His spirit. This is Grace. Peter was given THE revelation of who Jesus IS. Jesus said He would build His church on This. Knowing just a portion of Jesus is not enough. Jesus changeth not. He is God Yahweh Eternal. yes He is mercy,grace, and desires such. But He is also The Law giver to Moses. Jesus is much more than The soft submitted Worthy Lamb of God. He is also to be respected and feared with exaltation. He is! He is The Lord of Hosts also. A waring God of Righteousness against wickedness and Evil, Isn’t that what He really did on the Cross. ” HATING” and judging sin so that the sinner can repent and come to Him for eternal Life. Without Him one dies in their sin and they reap with their sin Holy Judgement. I know the spirit of this world and its religeous spirit does not like this but it is truth. Jesus is The Judge now in the Heavens down to and through this planet as well as The Judge to be revealed. One can tell what spirit someone is of by their submission to THE KING. So If Jesus sees fit to wipe a people out by ALLOWING it to happen then He must be right and we just do not understand everything but we trust and believe. Hence, ” KNOW The Real Jesus.”

For your consideration. It came to me that while the Arab nations are becoming increasingly more unstable and hostile to Israel, the net effect strengthens Israel against them. Their hatred for Israel was as real and ardent as before and now it is just more visible. But what’s changed is the structure and stability of the Arab nations where before they were disciplined and well organized. Now, while their hatred is boiling over, their caapacity to act in a well coordinated disciplined way has been severely reduced. Perhaps our Lord is preparing to soon deliver them into the hands of Israel. Like in the days of old … the enemies of Israel will turn upon themselves and devour one another. Shall we raise our trumpets and lamp jars? HaHa

Much love.
