Living Waters Ranch

John Fisk and I are in Challis, Idaho at Living Waters Ranch this weekend. My speaking session is Saturday afternoon; prayers appreciated. John and I are sharing amazing one on one time in this spectacular corner of the globe. “A brother assisted by a brother is like a lofty and fortified city.”

Christopher and Debbie James have a wonderful vision for this 2,700 acre ranch as a ministry refuge center for the West coast. Christopher also has a strong heart for Israel. I will be speaking on Ezekiel 36 which declares the end-time restoration, blessing and favor of God on Israel. This the subject of my latest book, Speak to the Dirt! (Click on sidebar picture to order it.) Right now it is available on Kindle, but will be published as a print book soon.

Here is a photo of John at the Tea Cup Cafe, which is in town, but an outreach of the Ranch.

Idaho, John in Challis

Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let Yehovah be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long. Psalm 35:27-28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Israel Always World News

16 10 2018

regathering_nefesh-students

Three news stories from other countries show once again that Israel makes news beyond its size. Israel is about one-tenth of one per cent, of the world’s population. Yet it is constantly in the news.

 

  1. Australian PM mulls recognizing Jerusalem as capital, moving embassy Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison told Israel’s prime minister that he is considering following in the footsteps of the Trump administration by formally recognizing Jerusalem as the country’s capital Monday. The potentially major shift in Australia’s foreign policy would align Morrison’s conservative government closer to the US and Israel, but likely draw widespread condemnation from the Arab Muslim world.
  2. Brazil’s Jews Move to Israel Amid Political Chaos Approximately 120,000 Jews live in Brazil and the country is witnessing an exodus like never before.

  3. Exodus: British (& Russian) Jews Join Global Flight and Leave for Israel The number of British Jews leaving the UK and seeking a new life in Israel has risen seven percent on last year’s figures, mirroring a sharp increase in Russian Jews also fleeing Europe. Overall, Israel saw the arrival of 18,965 immigrants under its Law of Return for Jews and their relatives, or olim, in the first eight months of 2018 compared to 19,067 in the same period last year, the Jerusalem Post reports.

He will raise a flag among the nations
and assemble the exiles of Israel.
He will gather the scattered people of Judah
from the ends of the earth. Isaiah 11:12 NLT

“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.” Ezekiel 36:24-28 NLT
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Pray Supernatural Wisdom for Pres. Trump

13 10 2018

Pastor Brunson, just freed from captivity in Turkey, prays for President Trump. He asks for supernatural wisdom. His wife also prays, for the Holy Spirit to be on our President. I think we should all take up this prayer for our President.

This second video is the entire Oval Office gathering. Watch especially at the very end from 18:30 to the 21:00 minute mark. Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina boldly proclaims Jesus and the Gospel, followed by Senator Tillis and Rep. Meadows. Well worth the time to watch. Praise Yehovah, the Lord God of Israel, and Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel. Hallelujah!

Thank God for the release of Pastor Brunson. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for rain, and Pray for President Trump.

Nikki Haley – “We’ll be taking names”

10 10 2018

Dry Bones Nikki HaleyHere are excerpts from a great article by Jack Engelhard, writing for Israel National News.

He quite clearly expresses the strength of Nikki Haley as US Ambassador to the UN. Her unapologetic stand for Israel was clear when the UN tried to condemn the US for moving our Embassy to Jerusalem. That is why she is my hero. In addition, she is an outspoken Christian personally and also boldly defending persecuted Christians around the world.

The best of Nikki Haley – “We’ll be taking names” Most days at the UN, she was the only man in the room. Pray that Trump will find another. Those days of bowing to the nations are over, finished, and if there was one moment that defined her entire approach to the entire world, it came at her defense of Israel.

Precisely, it came after President Trump named Jerusalem the capital of Israel, a decision that angered the nations. They were so used to having Israel their wayIsrael was their sport.

So they insisted on a do-over, which meant, as we recorded it here, a General Assembly resolution to protest Trump’s declaration. That included moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, which infuriated them even further—and which triggered Nikki Haley to rise to the occasion – and did she ever!

As follows: “At the UN we’re always asked to do more and give more. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American people, about where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thursday there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The U.S. will be taking names.”

Message sent. Message delivered. Message received…

…Sure enough foreign aid was cut to nations and agencies, like UNRWA and the PA, that were either wasteful or hateful, and always ungrateful.

Now they tiptoe around her.

Depending on who replaces her, the UN will never be the same again. She will have left her mark…and a triumphant mark it is. Tough shoes to fill… 

…One of a kind. Pray that there is another. INN Jack Engelhard

Yes indeed, we pray for another godly person to be our UN Ambassador.

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

LORD or YEHOVAH?

6 10 2018
Yehovah

YEHOVAH

One of the most profound prayers in the Bible for both Jews and Christians is the high priestly prayer, benediction, and blessing in Number 6. Today I want to share the simple but critical necessity of using God’s name in the prayer. Custom dictates using the generic LORD (in all caps), instead of His actual name, Yehovah, which is clear in the Hebrew text. But, does it matter? Yes indeed! The necessity of using His name is revealed in the last verse of Numbers 6, which is never quoted along with the prayer. Notice first, both the added intimacy and power of using the name of Yehovah. Secondly, notice the virtually unknown intent of Yehovah Himself for declaring the blessing and protection of placing His name over us.

And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:

​​​“YEHOVAH bless you and keep you; ​​YEHOVAH make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;

​​YEHOVAH lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” ’ ​

“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:22-27

Don’t you think it is time to invoke His real name over His people and receive His promised blessing?

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

(Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the best simple explanation I know, from my friend, Keith Johnson. Also, here is a link to my book which explains it in detail, The Hebrew God Who Has No Name.)





I Found the Right Word… 

1 10 2018

Kavenaugh

I Found the Right Word… Our nation has been transfixed on the Supreme Court nomination battle and I have been trying to think of the right word to describe the proceedings. These words came to mind, but were not exactly clear: despicable, deceitful, dishonest, misleading, confusing and threatening. However, this morning I realized the correct word: abomination.

Let me be clear and perhaps surprise you. I believe her. AND. I believe him. I believe she experienced something horrific, but I believe she was mistaken about who did it. You may see it differently, this is just my opinion. But the overall spectacle in the Senate’s pitiful handling of the “inquisition” is best described as an abomination to our nation.

How many of these seven things listed in Proverbs 6 apply to the Senate hearings?

These six things Yehovah hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

Only “shedding innocent blood” is missing from the Senate hearings. The other six were on display in abundance. I share this today, as we await the FBI report, so we can focus our intercession on the real problem. Pray for truth!

(Doreen just commented that even innocent blood is part of the discussion because of Roe V Wade and the pro-life/abortion issue.)

I understand that Judge Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley, has requested that believers pray Psalm 40 for their family. Here is a portion, but please pray the entire Psalm. What a great glory to God that their daughter included prayer for the accuser in their family prayers.

Be pleased, O Yehovah, to deliver me;
O Yehovah, make haste to help me!
Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion
Who seek to destroy my life;
Let them be driven backward and brought to dishonor
Who wish me evil.
Let them be confounded because of their shame,
Who say to me, “Aha, aha!”
Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let such as love Your salvation say continually,
“Yehovah be magnified!”
But I am poor and needy;
Yet Yehovah thinks upon me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Do not delay, O my God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

While You Were Watching

Iran's atomic sites

Plenty of words are flying around about the US Supreme Court, but while you were watching that “must see TV” something else was happening at the United Nations. Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel gave an amazing speech that you don’t want to miss. Please watch it here, which includes the transcript. He shows a map of Iran’s hidden nuclear storage site. (Also, Hezbollah missile sites near Beirut Airport in Lebanon)

“Thus says Yehovah to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: ​‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; ​​I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. ​​I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, Yehovah, ​​Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.” Isaiah 45:1-3

Please continue to pray for me as I complete my New Hampshire ministry this Sunday morning and Sunday night in Milton, NH.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
