6 Million Jews Dead

22 01 2020
Holocaust Forum

49 countries, including 41 heads of state, are expected in Jerusalem this week

Half of U.S. adults do not know about this! The murder of six million Jews is one of the darkest moments in world history and yet many American adults are ignorant of the historical facts. No wonder anti-semitism is on the rise.

Survey: Most US adults don’t know 6 million Jews killed in HolocaustPew study finds half of US adults don’t know basic facts about the Holocaust, including how Hitler came to power or number of Jewish victims. Those are some of the findings of a new study by the Pew Research Center released on Tuesday, about a week ahead of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The study asked nearly 13,000 respondents, Jewish and non-Jewish adults and teenagers, four questions about the Holocaust.

January 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. From Auschwitz to Jerusalem, the Holocaust is remembered so it would never happen again.

Everything you must know about the biggest diplomatic event in Israel’s history – Who’s coming and who’s boycotting the event? Who will be allowed to speak? Will Putin sit next to Pence? What are the leaders doing in their spare time? And what’s on the menu?

The prophetic importance of the Holocaust is even bigger than the tragedy itself. What Satan meant for evil, God has used for good. Only three years later, the world saw the miraculous rebirth of Israel, the Jewish nation. Nothing could have been more impossible in 1945 and yet it happened. The terrible suffering was forseen by the Psalmist is Psalm 102. I call it “The Holocaust Psalm.”

If you have never consider it, please read Psalm 102 right now. The first ten verses are a graphic vision of those demonic concentration camps and the indescribable suffering. But it is more than that, it is a prayer which is answered in verse thirteen:

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

This is one of the most profound prophecies in the Bible. Many last day interpretations require a bit of mental gymnastics, but this is so literally and historically clear. The Psalm that looked to the future is now a record of history and prophecy fulfilled. How can anyone read it in the context of the Holocaust and not see the direct historical connections? The Holocaust happened. Israel was reborn. Israel passed from being tormented and scattered around all the world to experiencing favor, restoration, and blessing from Yehovah, God of Israel. Hallelujah!

Verse eighteen gives us the final clue:

This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise Yehovah. Psalm 102:18

Unfortunately, a mistake in translation obscures the clue. Most versions say either “a generation to come” or “a future generation.” However, the Hebrew text is quite the opposite of some “nebulous” future time. The Hebrew is simply: “this will be written for the last generation.” Psalm 102 could not be literally understood until after the events transpired in history. Now it is clear. This is the time to favor Zion!

Pray for the peace and favor of Jerusalem! Praise Him for the abundant snow and rain the last two weeks.

Planet-wide Birth Pangs

17 01 2020

earthheldau092018

According to the Bible this planet is wearing out, like old clothes. Did you know that? There are an extraordinary number of volcanos and earthquakes right now around the earth. The volcanoes and earthquakes and wildfires and wars and rumors of wars and climate catastrophes like floods and tornadoes and hurricanes and even resistant bacterial epidemics are all prophesied in the Bible. Whew! What does all this mean?

Well, it is the answer to a question Jesus was asked by his disciples in Matthew 24. “How can we know when you are coming back?” His answer was summarized in a curious analogy. It will be at time when all these things listed will converge in something He calls, in verse eight, “the beginning of sorrows”. The literal Greek meaning is travail or birth pangs. The whole earth is now going through these birth pains. His analogy is of a woman about to give birth after many, many days of pregnancy. That is where we are in history. 

When the birth is imminent, three things happen. The pains keep increasing in number and intensity, they are closer together, and they last longer. This is where the earth is in history.

THE SHAKING EARTH

“You, Yehovah, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain; and they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not fail.” Hebrews 1:10-12

Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will have no end. Psalm 102:25-27

THE UNSHAKABLE KINGDOM

When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.” This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire. Hebrews 12:26-29 NLT

Jerusalem is the only time specific reference in the Matthew 24 and Luke 21. Jesus prophesied its destruction of 70 AD and then its restoration, which we now see fulfilled. This is the generation that will “not pass away.”

So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away tillall things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Luke 21:231-33

Watch Jerusalem and pray for her, as we continue to pray for rain.

The Greening of Israel

13 01 2020

Why do we pray for rain for Israel? Israel must become green. We pray according to God’s restoration purpose prophesied by prophets of old. If you want your prayers answered, pray what God has already said He will do. 

“Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance—all who seek Yehovah! Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined. Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.” Yehovah will comfort Israel again and have pity on her ruins. Her desert will blossom like Edenher barren wilderness like the garden of Yehovah. Joy and gladness will be found there. Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air. Isaiah 51:1-3 NLT

THE GARDEN OF YEHOVAH – We are now living in the season of the supernatural restoration of Israel, promised by Yehovah God of Israel, through many prophets over 4,000 years! God turned the page in 1948, following the prophesied judgement of the 1,800+ years of scattering to the countries of the world,  and we now see favor and blessing for His Chosen ones.

I will be to Israel like a refreshing dew from heaven. Israel will blossom like the lily; it will send roots deep into the soil like the cedars in Lebanon. Its branches will spread out like beautiful olive trees, as fragrant as the cedars of Lebanon. My people will again live under my shade. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon. Hosea 14:5-7 NLT

After years of drought the sea of Galilee is beginning to fill up again. It has risen three and a half feet already. Rainfall is “an unusually high amount for this point in the season.” The lake is 13 miles long and 8.1 miles wide covering 64.4 square miles. That’s a lot of rain! Thank you Jesus.

Ask Yehovah for rain in the time of the latter rain. Yehovah  will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.  Zechariah 10:1

Finally, we pray for the restoration of the seasonal rains because God says to, when we are “in the time of latter rain.” The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in this generation on “all flesh” means it is time for Israel’s greening! The best part is Israel is included in His Holy Spirit rain.

For I will gather you up from all the nations and bring you home again to your land.“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. “And you will live in Israel, the land I gave your ancestors long ago. You will be my people, and I will be your God. … And when I bring you back, people will say, ‘This former wasteland is now like the Garden of Eden! Ezekiel 36:24-28, 35 NLT

Thank God for the rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

2020 Zion’s Favor

8 01 2020

FB_IMG_1571508973945

This new year will see continued restoration of God’s favor toward Israel. The graph of His faithful blessings is still moving steadily upward. There are setbacks along the way, but Yehovah turns them around in the fulfilling of His Plan. The recent flare-up with Iran only confirms what I have been saying for several years. Iran will be diminished in this season. Iran only rises to join the final coalition for the final battle of Gog & Magog: foretold in Ezekiel 38. The primary countries named are Turkey, Iran, Sudan and Libya . (The towns listed are in Turkey and the ancient country names are now Iran/ Persia, Ethiopia/Sudan and Libya). This can only emerge after a time of peace when Israel takes down all of their present walls. Read the conditions listed for yourself.

Therefore, Doreen and I continue to travel to support Israel as we “stay in our lane” proclaiming the restoration of Israel: the land, the people, the Hebrew language, their culture and salvation through the Messiah Yeshua and the restoration of the covenant name of our Father God: YEHOVAH!

Our travel was extensive this year with 2 1/2 weeks in Florida in March and a stop in Chareston, SC on the way home. Patrick Kennedy and I went to Lt. Gov. Dan Forest’s men’s retreat at the Billy Graham Cove in April and also shared in the Shalom Peniel Passover at the Raleigh Hilton. June was our wonderful Israel tour with 30 folks forever changed. In July, Doreen and I were blessed to attend the Christians United for Israel Summit with John Hagee in Washington, DC. August found us at Liberty University for the American Renewal Project promoting Christian pastor and church involvement in the election process. It is time Christians stand up and speak up and VOTE for righteousness in government. Idaho was the location of 2 1/2 weeks of ministry in October in Sandpoint, Challis and Boise. Two weeks ministering in New Hampshire followed throuugh Nov 5. We then left Nov. 27 for Kenya ministry, returning on Dec 11. The PDA youth conference saw over 1,500 saved and over 3,000 baptized in the Holy Spirit. I also spoke  to 100 pastors in Nairobi and had several life-changing impartations of my Israel message to key pastors from Zimbabwe and India. Whew! What a wonderful year. Thank you Jesus! (This excerpt is from our EV Intercessors 2019 Report.)

We have deep appreciation and gratitude for your love and support. As always, if the Lord speaks to you to send financial gifts, you can give by credit card or PayPal on the Donate Button or send mail to PO Box 1601, Wake Forest, NC 27588.

Also, please note that our Oct 20-30 Elisha Vision Speak to the Dirt Israel Tour is now accepting deposits of $300.00 for 14 remaining spots. You can use the same Donate Button and mention the Tour. First come, first served.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Him for the present rains!

2020 Vision in Prophecy

4 01 2020

Dry Bones 2020

This cartoon with the sound of “ticking” has prophetic meaning. This is not just another year or decade. Major prophetic pieces are fitting into the puzzle. Hidden plots in the past are now being revealed. Israel is at the center of the world in many respects. The geo-politcal shaking of nations is being overtaken by cosmic contests of war in the heavenlies.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

Elisha Vision Ministries is based on the prayer of Elisha for his servant’s eyes to be opened to see in the spiritual dimension. Elisha’s great declaration was “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 2 Kings 6:16 We see the end of days, and we win in Jesus. Pray for 2020 spiritual vision.

But in the meantime, we are at war in the spiritual plane. Don’t look down at the flesh, look up to the Messiah and Yehovah, the God of angel armies. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

Yet I see real victory in 2020. We plan to take two groups to Israel. I see victory for God’s purpose in the elections in both Israel and America. I see a greater harvest of souls for the Kingdom and greater activation of believers to function with authority in a broken world. I see revival in Africa sparked by a greater move of God in Kenya and beyond. I see believers moving into greater faith, not just for healing, but faith to live in health. We are closer than ever to the glorious appearing of the Messiah Yeshua! Here is a word for 2020. Speak, exhort and rebuke with authority.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you. Titus 2:11-15

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for seasonal rain in the Land! May your new year be blessed and effective for the Kingdom of God.

The Answer to: WHY Anti-Semitsm?

1 01 2020

anti-semitism GettyImages-672360242-1024x570

With the recent sharp rise in anti-Semitic attacks against Jews, a fundamental question begs an answer. Statistics are abundant, but what is behind the hatred of Jews, not just now, but throughout history? The answer is simple and may surprise you. Jews are not the true object of the hatred. They are substituted for the real hatred. Why them? The answer is in Psalm 83 and Zechariah 2. God’s enemies cannot reach Him, so they go after His chosen people. It will never stop before the Messiah comes.

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You:  Psalm 83:1-5

The hatred is against Yehovah God. It issues forth from the very hatred and rebellion of Satan himself against God. The devil cannot touch God, so he goes after God’s beloved people. He orchestrates hatred and violence against Israel trying to get back at Yehovah.

For thus says Yehovah of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.  Zechariah 2:8

The devil has been trying to seduce man since the garden of Eden. He has been trying to prevent the Messiah’s salvation since the beginning. Even after seeing Jesus killed, he still lost when the Messiah was resurrected from the dead! Satan hates God. He instills this hatred in all who fall under his influence. The parallels between now and pre-war Nazi Germany are striking.

As long as this present world keeps talking about race or economics or politics to justify or explain anti-Semitism, they will never understand the real source of the evil hatred. It is destined to culminate in the battle of the ages between heaven and hell when the Messiah comes. But as stated, Satan has already lost; because Jesus Himself is the resurrection and the life!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank God for the rain and snow this season.

Un-Christianity Today

20 12 2019

 

Franklin-Graham-640x480Last night I read the editorial from Christianity Today magazine. It was a rehash of Democrat talking points cleverly couched in religious and moral superiority. Name-dropping Billy Graham backfired immediately with Franklin Graham’s denunciation of the article, and revelation that Billy Graham voted for Trump, knew him personally and “He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.”

The Bible exposes the self-righteousness of the editorial. Only when one feels morally superior does he forget this fundamental truth. No man knows another man’s heart:

“Judge not, that you be not judged.For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:1-5

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 2:11

President Trump will ultimately be judged on the fruit of his actions, not his words. Of course he offends many with his words, but what does he actually do, not in the past, but in his presidency? I maintain that his policy accomplishments have done more for Biblical standards in our nation than any President since Reagan. Whether it is from his heart or political expediency is not for me to judge or even know. But I do know that when I go into that voting booth in 2020 my vote is for the candidates who stand for pro-life, pro-Israel, pro-family, pro-America (not a globalist), pro legal immigration (not open borders), pro-school choice, pro-jobs and pro-minorities. Is President Trump a flawed human being? Of course! Show me one person without sin (other than Jesus) and I will hand you the stones. Compare the platforms of the parties and vote for the party which most closely lines up with the Bible. No contest.

I agree with Billy (and Franklin) Graham. Donald Trump (like Cyrus of old) is God’s man for this hour in America.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for the seasonal rains.
