Is Your Lamp Filled With Oil?

Sundown tomorrow is the feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, the beginning of the final feasts. The last feast is Tabernacles, a seven day feast beginning on October 9th this year. The whole world is shaking right now with the birth pangs of a new Kingdom. Wake up and prepare for the coming of the Lord! There are many Bible scholars who believe that the Messiah will come on the Day of Trumpets. So, the question of the day is: Is Your Lamp Filled With Oil? Here are the words of Jesus the Son of God, Yeshua ben Yehovah:

“Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’ All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’ But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’ So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.”  Matthew 25:1-13 NLT

Will you be celebrating the final feast, the marriage feast? It is the marriage supper of the Lamb of God. Not all will be admitted. Of course, the unrepentant will not enter, but even many who claim to serve Him will not enter. This is consistent in Jesus’ teaching as recorded earlier in Matthew.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”  Matthew 7:21-23

The Ultimate Preppers – There are many preppers around the world today who are saving up food and water and more. Some have bomb shelters or they move into the wilderness because of the things that are about to come on the earth. Preparedness is wise, but the question remains: Is Your Lamp Filled With Oil? This oil is the Holy Spirit, and the lamp is your life. Are you full of the Holy Spirit? Do you know His voice? His assignment from Yehovah is to prepare the bride for the Heavenly Bridegroom and the great wedding feast of eternity. As Abraham sent his servant to find a bride for Isaac, so God sent the Holy Spirit to prepare a bride for the Messiah. I am glad you have plenty of freeze-dried food for the next hurricane, but, Is Your Lamp Filled With Oil?

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and abundant rains for the land.

Parent and Senior Adult Challenge

If you use a computer or a smartphone you can have a blessing ministry to your children. When Michael Masambu was with us a month ago, he challenged us to speak God’s words into our children and grandchildren with God’s blessing. We can all do that.

Well, today I began my blessing project for my own family. It is just a simple group text with a short word of wisdom, a Bible verse, or even just a “Grampa joke.” I won’t do it so often that it gets old for them, but try to keep it interesting. Even though I have authored eight books, they may not read them. But a sentence or two is enough to sow a seed. Here is the link to “The Blessing” by Kari Jobe & Cody Carnes.

Here is the first one I sent today: This text is GT#1 of random Grampa texts of wisdom and humor that I will be sending just to family. I hope you like them, but even if you don’t, I am still “the Grampa!” (sung like “Tra-di-tion!” from Fiddler on the Roof.) There is no set order or timing. You will get one when you least expect. Here is the first one, a very important truth. – If you want to understand God, you need to learn to “stand-under” God.

This affords us the opportunity to share a legacy with our posterity. Anyone can do it. You may not have great financial wealth to leave, but what is greater than the wisdom of Yehovah from many years? Why not start your own legacy blessing for your family?

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.”  Proverbs 13:22

“Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.”  Proverbs 17:6

“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren,”  Deuteronomy 4:9

“But the mercy of Yehovah is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;”  Psalm 103:17

“All your children shall be taught by Yehovah, And great shall be the peace of your children.” Isaiah 54:13

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for your children!

3 Quick Updates

14 07 2022

img1079283

  1. My first reaction to President Biden’s Israel visit is good. He generally said the right things other than still holding out for the “two state” idea, which is virtually dead by all accounts. His joint Jerusalem Declaration with Interim Prime Minister Lapid confirmed Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and neglected any idea of dividing the city. He even said his visit to a Palestinian hospital did not indicate any change of status for the U.S. position on Jerusalem. He had a very warm handshake with Netanyahu and a short meeting. We pray now for good news tomorrow in Saudi Arabia. Perhaps against his personal wishes, President Biden is clearly promoting the Abraham Accords. I have stated all along that God is in these Accords and man cannot block what Yehovah is doing.

    “We made a mistake walking away from US influence in the Middle East”“No change in policy implied” by American-only visit to eastern Jerusalem, says Biden.

  2. I was recently interviewed on a popular podcast by my friend and Messianic leader Myles Weiss. We spoke of the Abraham Accords and other prophetic fulfillments. You can listen Here: To Life! The Hope Behind the Headlines 
  3. I apologize, but we have to change Issachar Forum: A Prophetic Think Tank back to Tuesday nights. Milton’s Restaurant reversed their announced plan to open Sunday nights. Therefore we will convene at 6pm each Tuesday beginning July 19th. The YouTube version will also be uploaded on Tuesdays from that date. You can always click on the YouTube logo for the link.

I Was Wrong; But it’s Inevitable

17 06 2022

So, Israel’s coalition government is still standing after one year. I was wrong. I was wrong. I was wrong. A mishmash collection of conflicting parties beat my prediction. A year ago I predicted it would collapse in the first year (not “thus says the Lord”). But even now its end is near. Even the Prime Minister says it will probably not last two weeks.

Bennett warns coalition will collapse within a week or two unless MKs end rebellion – On 1st anniversary of taking power, PM says ruling bloc members ‘haven’t internalized’ importance of the hour; Netanyahu claims premier fighting for his job, not the country.

Shaked pressuring Bennett: Agree to right-wing government in the current Knesset – If his government disintegrates, Bennett will consider joining a right-wing government led by Netanyahu.

The current eight member coalition includes a Communist party, a Muslim Brotherhood party, other liberals, and a couple conservative parties who betrayed their own voters by linking with the extremists. Therefore its collapse is still inevitable. We pray for a new government that will listen to the God of Israel in all of its decisions. It’s not over. Yehovah has the final say!

Why did I stand on a chair? As a young father (and rookie Pastor) of three young girls, God spoke to me very clearly one evening as I was washing my hands before supper. It was not audible, but nevertheless quite clear in my spirit. He said I was to stop burping at meals with my family. He pointed out that I would never do that at a dinner with the Mayor. He said I was dishonoring and disrespecting my wife and girls with the nasty habit. He said I should tell them what He had spoken. He then told me I was to stand on a chair and say: “I was wrong.” Three times! To say they were shocked is an understatement, but I have obeyed that instruction ever since.

I later realized how important it is for fathers to own up to their mistakes and failures. The example for my girls 40 years ago has born life-long fruit. Even today, in family gatherings, if I say something wrong, they will say: “On the chair, Dad!” It is now a warm memory and occasion for laughter and love. But, this is important for any leader. Don’t be so full of yourself. Walk in proper humility before all. We have the privilege of showing Jesus to the world. When some people see Jesus in us, it may be the first time they ever see Him.

I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you.15 For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Therefore I urge you, imitate me. — Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” 1 Corinthians 4:14-16 and 1 Corinthians 11:1

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:5-8

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”  James 4:10

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

God is with Israel

21 05 2022

Aliyah 2019

The time is coming when ten people will grab the sleeve of one Jew and beg them to walk together with Yehovah God. Is this a proportional (10 to 1?) prophecy? I don’t know about that, but it tells a lot about the future of Israel. We know that He was with them in the past, but He is also with them in the future.

“This is what Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies says: In those days ten men from different nations and languages of the world will clutch at the sleeve of one Jew. And they will say, ‘Please let us walk with you, for we have heard that God is with you.’” Zechariah 8:23 NLT

Remember what Rahab, the prostitute, said when Joshua was entering the Promised Land? She immediately knew that God was with them and it was wise to join them in order to be blessed by their God.

and (Rahab) said to the men: “I know that Yehovah has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how Yehovah dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for Yehovah your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath. Joshua 2:8-11

These are two examples the fame of God reaching the ears of unbelievers. The literal “fear of the Lord” brought wisdom to Rahab. In the end times people will clamor for God’s blessing by physically traveling to Israel. In order for this prophecy to be fulfilled, the world will need to see and acknowledge that God is truly with Israel. This has begun with the miracle rebirth of the nation in 1948 and the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967. Millions of Jews are returning to their roots in Israel. From 600,000 Jews there in 1948 to over seven million in 2022. Israeli tourism is amazing, fulfilling God’s promises.

“This is what Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies says: People from nations and cities around the world will travel to Jerusalem. The people of one city will say to the people of another, ‘Come with us to Jerusalem to ask Yehovah to bless us. Let’s worship Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies. I’m determined to go.’ Many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies and to ask for his blessing.” Zechariah 8:20-22

Even if you cannot travel to Israel, you can seek the blessing of the God of Israel. He has made it personal for each of us by offering the Messiah, His Son Yeshua. He loves us and wants to have a relationship with us that includes all His blessings. As the world watches God’s increasing favor on Israel and the Jewish people, they must recognize that God is with them.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and abundant rain in God’s timing. Also, please pray for my ministry in Idaho for the next two weeks.

Do THIS! – Remember Ishtar?

16 04 2022

IMG_4295 c

The most glorious sunrise in 6,000 years of history on earth revealed that the tomb was empty. Jesus was raised from the dead! He is alive! Just hours before his execution He led His last Passover meal with His disciples. There are three keys from that dinner that guide our relationship with Him today.

  1. Jesus said at that moment: “For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.” Luke 22:18 The next meal will be the marriage supper of the Lamb!
  2. Do THIS!He gave a most significant instruction at that Passover which is minimized by many of today’s Christians. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: THIS DO in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19 The “THIS” that He was referring to, is the Passover meal which Christians call the Last Supper. It has been shrunk down from a full meal with four meaningful cups, to a thimble of juice and bit of bread. We can all reap the rich importance of Passover, not only the Jews.
  3. The third key is found in the same verse: And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: this do IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME.” Luke 22:19 Somehow, we have managed to replace Jesus in the name of the resurrection celebration with the name of the Babylonian pagan goddess of fertility. Known as “the queen of heaven,” this pagan goddess has been called by various names such as: Ishtar, Astarte, Diana of the Ephesians, and Venus, from which we now have “Easter,” (from Ishtar). This is most unfortunate because most Christians don’t have a clue that our most glorious season does not “remember” Jesus, but rather carries the name of a demonic goddess. I would love to see the church move away from the pagan name and call the glorious morning “Resurrection Day!”

Finally, notice I said these verses guide our “relationship” with Jesus. I am not talking about religious duty, but rather knowing Him as a friend. The Kingdom of God is relational. It is not “what” you know, but “Who” you know. After training His disciples for several years as “disciplined followers,” Jesus promoted them to the highest honor:

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you FRIENDS, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for seasonal rains.

Four Headlines – Twisted Truth

8 04 2022

Image

HEADLINES MATTER – If you did not know the real story you would not get it from these headlines. A terrorist walked into a restaurant in Tel Aviv, Israel and started murdering Jews. Three died and a dozen more were injured. His motive was to please the god of Islam as a special offering during Ramadan. Gaza and other Palestinian cities celebrated three innocent civilian Jewish deaths with fireworks and handing out candies to honor their “sweet victory.” The father of the terrorist even celebrated his own son’s death.

Tel Aviv attack: Father of assailant praises son’s actions ‘Victory will come soon, in the coming days you will see the change. You will be free and independent.’ He is reportedly a former senior officer in the Palestinian national security establishment.

Three of these headlines do not mention Jewish victims and do not use the term: “terrorist.” The fourth is the worst. It makes it sound like Israel murdered a Palestinian during a manhunt. Israeli headlines say something more like this: “Terrorist Eliminated After Murdering Civilians in a Restaurant.”

These new deaths now make fourteen Israelis murdered in four different Israeli cities in the last two weeks. There is a major rise in terrorist attacks. It is worse this year because of the convergence of Ramadan, Passover, and Resurrection Day all at the same time. Pray seriously for Divine protection for Israel in the next two weeks. Pray that these threats will turn the hearts of many to the living God of the Bible.

“The name of Yehovah is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

“Yehovah’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over. Therefore, Yehovah, we know you will protect the oppressed, preserving them forever from this lying generation, even though the wicked strut about, and evil is praised throughout the land.”  Psalm 12:6-8 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and pray for rain in Israel.

Why Pray for Israel Rain?

26 03 2022

Sea of Galilee 2

Just so you know, it is commanded by God to pray for rain in Israel. There is even a specific prophetic timing to do it. There are four related prophetic reasons, but here is the first and most direct command.

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

  1. Command to pray for rain.
  2. Specific timing to pray for rain.
  3. Desert will blossom “like a rose.”
  4. We are living in the time of restoration of Israel.

The second reason is the timing mentioned in that verse, “the time of the latter rain.” This refers to Joel’s prophecy of the last days outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the start of the “church age” and the end. Peter identified the early rain on the day of Pentecost. We are now seeing the last great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our generation. This is precisely the prophesied “time of the latter rain.”

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in Yehovah your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, and the latter rain.

“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Joel 2:23 & 28

Third, there is a specific promise of the Negev, Israel’s southern desert. Where it was once a forest, it is now desert because of God’s judgement. Yet the promise remains that it will blossom again!

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; Isaiah 35:1

Those who come He shall cause to take root in Jacob; Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit. Isaiah 27:6

The fourth reason to pray for Israel rain is that we are living in the time of Israel’s restoration. After 1,800 years of judgement, God turned the page after the Holocaust and Israel as a nation was reborn. The exiles are retuning from all the countries where they were scattered. Yehovah has restored the land, the people, the language, the capital city, and most importantly, His favor. Since 70 A.D. the Jews never won a war. From 1948 they never lost a war. What changed? God turned the page from judgement to restoration, favor, and blessing. Hallelujah!

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

Israel faces very cold, wet weekend as Kinneret continues to rise  With rain expected to continue over the weekend, the Kinneret is set to rise to just half a meter below maximum capacity. March 25, 2022

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!

Functioning in a Dysfunctional World

19 03 2022

Lions

The prophet Daniel revealed an amazing principle right in the middle of his last days prophesies, a revelation for us today. Most Bible students are aware of this phrase from the King James: the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” We love to focus on doing great exploits, but here is the amazing truth. The word “exploits” is not in the Hebrew. Look at it in the New King James and the King James translation. Notice that “great exploits” and “exploits” are in italics in each case.

“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32 NKJV

And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32 KJV

When you see words in italics in our English translations, it means the words are not in the Hebrew, but are added as what the translators deemed was the intention. In this case I believe it actually takes away from Daniel’s and the Holy Spirit’s intent. The Hebrew word for “do” literally means to act and make things happen when others are not able to function, by implication. Still being functional in the middle of a crises is, in itself, the great exploit.

My research indicates that his real point was that when people all around are dysfunctional, those who know Yehovah God will be functional! This is our time to shine, to stand firm in the power of the living God.

The world is surrendering to fear, to panic, to depression, and hopelessness. But, we know God. He is with us. Jesus will never leave or forsake us. Yet, this is not only for us to survive the trouble, but that we will rise up and lead the hopeless ones to hope in God. We are to speak peace to panic, faith to fear, and LIFE to the depressed. This is not a time to hide or escape, it is time to function! We have read the end of the Book, Jesus wins!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Chosen People – Chosen LAND!

19 02 2022

Almond blooms in Israel(Almond trees blooming in Israel)

Most know that the Jews are God’s chosen people, but few realize how important His chosen land is to Yehovah God who promised. In the original promise of Genesis 12 where God spoke of the blessing and curse relating to Israel, He pointedly called seventy-five year old Abram to leave his own country and family to a specific land.

Now Yehovah had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s  house, to a LAND that I will show you.” Genesis 12:1

I wrote an entire book about the LAND promise (Speak to the Dirt!) This is no small point. The LAND of Israel is a non-negotiable promise of Yehovah. Once you see this, you find land references throughout the Bible. Here is another of my favorites, from the mouth of Moses.

“Therefore you shall keep every commandment which I command you today, that you may be strong, and go in and possess the LAND which you cross over to possess,and that you may prolong your days in the LAND which Yehovah swore to give your fathers, to them and their descendants, ‘a LAND flowing with milk and honey.’For the LAND which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the LAND which you cross over to possess is a LAND of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a LAND for which Yehovah your God cares; the eyes of Yehovah your God ARE ALWAYS ON IT from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.” Deuteronomy 11:8-12

The blessing and curse principle of Genesis 12 is rising in importance as the antisemitism reaches new depths. Verbal and physical attacks against Jews (and also even Christians) are breaking records in many countries. This is directly tied to end times prophecy and starkly reveals that our battle is not carnal but “against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

‘Vicious Libel’: AOC Blasted After Implying Israel Keeps Palestinian Children In Cages  Ocasio-Cortez was blasted for her false claims involving the Jewish state. The American Jewish Committee responded by tweeting, “@AOC, you know as well as we do that there are no Palestinian children ‘in cages’ in the West Bank. This kind of gross misinformation hurts chances for reasonable discussion and furthers harmful biases. You must apologize for these baseless allegations.”

Jews, Christians Outraged After PCUSA Leader Accuses Israel of Enslaving Palestinians   Jewish leaders are calling for a top Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) official to resign for repeatedly accusing Israel of practicing slavery.

It does not matter if every nation stands against Israel and every demonic spirit spreads lies and libel against them. In the end, God will bless Israel in their OWN LAND and their enemies will be defeated. Jesus, the Messiah (Yeshua haMashiach) will rule from His throne in Jerusalem to the final glory of Yehovah God, the Father!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Hamas and Perverse Hope

10 12 2021

scene of a stabbing attaack

Satan is not subtle, nor is he bright. He only lives to bring darkness, destruction, and death. In comments about recent terrorist stabbings in Jerusalem, Hamas, the Gaza terrorist overlords, have reached a new low in this headline:

Hamas spokesman: Stabbings give us hope A Hamas spokesperson called on Israeli Arabs to step up attacks against “settlers” saying it “gives hope to Gaza.” Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for the Hamas movement, said that the increased terrorist activity in Judea and Samaria draws its inspiration from the spirit of jihad and the struggle in the Gaza Strip. “…in stabbing the settlers with a knife and in confrontations with the soldiers of the occupation, you gave us back the hope of victory and liberation.” Barhum called on Israeli Arabs to continue shooting and stabbing the “occupation and its settlers.”

The name they use, Hamas, is actually an acronym of the organizations full name. They use it because the acronym forms a specific word in Hebrew: violence. It is intended as a sort of subtle propaganda intimidation of Israelis. The Hebrew word “hamas” occurs 60 times in the Hebrew text of the Bible.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with VIOLENCE. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with VIOLENCE through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6:11-13

Hamas occurs 60 times. The KJV translates Strong’s H2555 in the following manner: violence (39x), violent (7x), cruelty (4x), wrong (3x), false (2x), cruel (1x), damage (1x), injustice (1x), oppressor (with H376) (1x), unrighteous (1x).

Click on each to see an amazing glimpse into the death cult of jihadism. It was no accident that Hamas uses this acronym. Death is the final threat of Satan. The good news is that Yeshua not only paid for our sins with His own blood, He defeated death itself! He rose from the dead! Death no longer has its hold on believers. We know we shall live again, no matter what the devil does. He is defeated. The Messiah rules! Jesus if the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! And, He is coming soon!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank God for the winter rains.

Real Miracle of Hanukka

2 12 2021

Dry Bones Hanukkah 2021

This cartoon sums it up. The miracle of Israel’s restoration is the story of the faithfulness of Yehovah, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The supernatural blessing of God on Israel continues to this day. When the Maccabees defeated the Greco/Syrian dictator Antiochus, they thwarted his intention to destroy Jerusalem and Israel’s temple. My wife, Doreen, wrote a children’s book about it: How Hanukkah Saved Christmas.

If Antiochus had succeeded, the prophecies of the Messiah entering Jerusalem and the Temple could not have happened. Here is just one example of the triumphal entry into Jerusalem prophesied and fulfilled.

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.” Zechariah 9:9

“The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: ​​​Hosanna! “​Blessed is He who comes in the name of Yehovah!” ​​The King of Israel!

​Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: ​​“Fear not, daughter of Zion; ​​Behold, your King is coming, ​​Sitting on a donkey’s colt.”Zechariah 12:12-15

The miracle of Israel’s survival through nearly 2,000 years of scattering among the nations is nothing less than the supernatural faithfulness of God. He has kept His promises to the forefathers in this wonderful time of restoration. After the great dispersion both Jews and Christians are eagerly looking for the Messiah to come. They are also now sharing persecution from the enemy. The wall that has separated Jews and Christians is coming down. We are seeing the promise of “one new man!”

“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,” Ephesians 2:14-15

When God Moves Enemies Scatter

14 10 2021

ark_testimony

The cry of God’s people under attack is that Yehovah God Himself would rise up and intervene to defeat the enemies. There is a powerful prayer of Moses that was declared every time the Ark of God moved out of the camp to lead the way as Israel advanced. We know about the cloud by day and fire by night, but the real key was Yehovah going with them in the Ark of God’s presence, the Ark of the Covenant. If God does not go with you, you don’t want to go.

So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O Yehovah! Let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You.” Numbers 10:35

The fear of Yehovah God literally came on the enemies of Israel as they approached the Promised Land. His reputation proceeded them. Notice the last phrase in the declaration: “Let those who hate you flee before you.” Make no mistake, God’s wrath is toward those who hate Him.

Even today the lines are drawn. There are a lot of accusations of “haters,” but the ultimate evil hatred is against God. Enemies attack His people, but it is God they hate. This prayer of Moses is a very practical prayer for believers today. Our first priority is to let God lead. Put Him out front in everything we do. If we put Him and His presence first, that is when the enemies will scatter. If your enemies are winning, maybe you are not putting God first.

This declaration was said by Moses as the Ark moved out. However, the next verse gives another prayer for when they camp for the night and the Ark is in their midst. It is also good for us today.

And when it rested, he said: “Return, O Yehovah, To the many thousands of Israel.” Numbers 10:36

We pray for God to go before us as we go out, and for Him be in the middle of our lives when resting.

We also declare these very verses when we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Yehovah God is our hope and protection through the Messiah, His Son: Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus Son of God!

Abraham Accords Israel Caucus

11 10 2021

Dry bones ABE Peace

Today is the convening of the new Abraham Accords Caucus in the Israeli Knesset (Parliament). This is another step in the expanding peace between Israel and the Arab states. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are in Israel today to participate in the caucus. The media invitation describes the initiative as: “The launch of the caucus will focus on the enormous economic and tourism potential, the deepening of relations with countries in the region and the possibility of new agreements with additional countries,”

Kushner, Trump to attend launch of Abraham Accords CaucusKnesset caucus to focus on economic and tourism potential of historic pact between Israel, four Arab countries. Former US president Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, who both served as senior White House advisers, will attend the launch of the Abraham Accords Caucus at the Knesset (Israel parliament) on Monday.

Also, a promising new sign is seen in a joint water agreement with Jordan and Oman. The latter is another country interested in the peace accords.

Senior official hopeful for future Israel-Oman normalization – A senior official from Israel’s Foreign Ministry expressed interest in the country’s potential for diplomatic relations with Oman on Wednesday.

Israel is not an apartheid state, Pompeo says“We recognized that this is not an occupied nation, this is not an apartheid country,” Pompeo stated. “It is a democracy where faiths can be practiced from all of the Abrahamic traditions.” 

Even while the world is distracted by many things, Yehovah, the God of Israel is still proceeding with His prophetic purpose of peace for Israel. Of course, there is the ultimate peace of the Messiah, but in this season God is moving toward a peace that will meet the conditions of the Ezekiel 38 Gog and Magog War. Israel must be at peace, having taken down the present walls, enjoying an unprecedented respite from the constant threats of war. Most expect that war, but I maintain that there must be a breakthrough peace to set the stage first. Pray into God’s will. Pray according to His revealed order of events in Scripture.

Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—  Ezekiel 38:10-11

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain in this new rainy season in Israel.

Why Are We Called Elisha Vision?

7 08 2021

L & D Gulf Coast 2019 cropped

Les and Doreen Lawrence have a specific ministry to connect Jewish and Christian believers. 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

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain for Israel.

Israel’s Legal Right to the Land

25 01 2017

1920_-_original_territory_assigned_to_the_jewish_national_home-400x267

ISRAEL FACT CHECK Israel is the legal owner of the land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria, the so-called West Bank. Lost in the propaganda barrage is the historical legal record, which has just been confirmed January 12, 2017 by a French Court. First mentioned in the Balfour Declaration of 1917, it became law at the San Remo Conference on April 25, 1920 (see blue links below). It was confirmed by the League of Nations and later by the United Nations. So why the confusion now?

Modern propaganda relies on the simple historical ignorance and definition of the term “Palestine.” Any Christian can whip out his Bible and point to the maps section where many Bibles show a map of “Palestine in the time of Christ.” The problem is that there was no Palestine then. The term was invented for the area by the Romans after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. They intentionally renamed Israel as Palestina in order to further humiliate and destroy the Jews. They invented the term, drawing from Israel’s historic enemies, the Philistines, with absolutely no connection to modern Palestinians, who are actually Arabs mainly from Syria and Egypt.

Furthermore, it was not a country, but under Roman rule. In fact, it never became a country later and there has never been a country called Palestine. The name was more of a description of that part of the Roman Empire. Later it became part of the Ottoman Empire for four hundred years before World War I, but never a country of itself. There is no Palestinian culture separate from Arabs. There is no separate Palestinian language or history. It was invented by PLO terrorist Yassar Arafat in the 1960’s as a means of replacing and destroying Israel.

They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4

Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank, says the Court of Appeal of Versailles

Jerusalem Embassy Controversy

21 12 2016

jerusalemoct172016The United States has Embassies in 167 countries, but in only one country is our embassy NOT in that country’s capital city. Israel is the only one that the United States refuses an embassy in their capital. Our embassy is in Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem. Israel named Jerusalem as its capital in 1950, not to overlook that King David made it his capital over 3,000 years ago. All Jews have considered Jerusalem their capital for 3,000 years, whether they are in the land or scattered among the nations.

The US Congress passed a law in 1995 requiring our embassy be moved by 1999. However, a six month waiver included, allowed the President to waive the mandate. Each President has signed the waiver every six months for over sixteen years. But this year is different. President-Elect Trump insists that he will move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Most Israelis rejoice with the prospect. Yet, extreme leftists and most nations are in a panic about the move. David Friedman’s nomination as US Ambassador to Israel further confirms Trump’s intention to follow through.

I maintain that the near future will see Israel annexing Judea and Samaria (the entire West Bank). This is the only option for peace. The two-state plan is dead. Hamas is gaining influence over the Palestinian Authority and Israel simply will not allow Hamas to take over the area.

Prophecy is clear that Israel will win the Psalm 83 War as their enemies fight one another. It is the same as the Midianites in Gideon’s day yielding total victory for Israel. Prophecy is also clear about the status of Jerusalem, which is why it is so important for us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This is what the sovereign God of Israel says:

This message concerning the fate of Israel came from Yehovah: “This message is from Yehovah, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. Zechariah 12:2 NLT

Israel…Is…Real

1 12 2016

dry-bones-trumpOnce upon a time we could assume that a Jew would naturally support the survival of the Jewish State. Once upon a time we suspected all Christians of being secret antisemites. Well, those days are gone forever! Here’s hoping that President Trump appoints a dedicated Zionist to the post of Ambassador to Israel, and that does not necessarily mean a Jew. (comments by Yaachov Kirschen, Israeli cartoonist who has drawn Dry Bones since 1973)

I have enjoyed the Dry Bones cartoons almost from the beginning. It is such a joy for me to see Mr Kirschen recognizing the major change in evangelical Christendom from replacement theology to openly Zionist. I have never met him, but consider him a true friend, due to the common bond of Zionism. He knows that all Christians are not Zionists, and that it is also true that not all Jews are Zionists. I applaud him for his honesty. Keep up the great work!

On a related point, consider the hypocrisy of one of Israel’s main political parties. They have changed their name from Labor to the Zionist Party; yet, they are anti-Zionist. They are in favor of dividing the land for a two-state solution. (By the way… been there – done that! The land dedicated by Britain for a Jewish state was already divided to create a Palestinian state. That is how we got Jordan. Now they want to divide the land again for another Palestinian state!) The “Zionist Party” is just the opposite. They are co-opting the term to confuse things.

My view is clear. The only solution that will bring peace is annexation of Judea and Samaria (West Bank). As I wrote in a recent blog, if you want your prayers answered, pray what Yehovah God has already said He is going to do.

“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2

Act of War?

22 11 2016

plo-demoHere is an odd little story to spice up your holiday.

‘Muezzin Law is a declaration of war’ The Palestinian Authority is warning that Israel’s law to ban loudspeakers for the Muslim call to prayer (5 times daily) is an act of war.” Really? “The Palestinian Authority leadership blasted a proposed law to ban the use of loudspeakers to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer from mosques across Israel, warning that if passed the law would spark a new war.”

Turkey has also weighed in: Turkey: ‘Muezzin Law’ is an insult “Turkish Deputy Prime Minister says law prohibiting mosques from using loudspeakers is an insult to the history of Jerusalem.”

What is wrong with this picture? Well, for starters, many nations already have a loudspeaker ban in place. This includes Muslim nations such as Egypt, UAE, and Saudi Arabia.

Secondly, Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for over 3,000 years. Islam has been around less than half that time.

If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth— If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy. Psalm 137:5-6

Thirdly, why the double standard? If other countries ban loudspeakers under decibel rules, why can’t Israel?

Other Countries Muffle Mosques, But Israel Cannot? (This a great article from Israel Today, my favorite Messianic site.) “Quite the controversy is raging over Israel’s proposed legislation aimed at muffling the five daily Muslim calls to prayer from local mosques. In recent decades, the call of the muezzin has been amplified by multiple loudspeakers, resulting in tremendous noise pollution starting at 4:30 AM every morning.”

Of course the issue is not the new law, it is an excuse for another accusation against Israel. Her enemies continue to demand the elimination of Israel.

UC Berkeley Offers Class in Erasing Jews From Israel, Destroying Jewish State This article reveals a new class at UC Berkeley that was stopped temporarily and then reinstated. The anti-Israel propaganda machine is world-wide, and especially strong on US campuses. We need to pray for our students that they will learn actual history, which will protect them from the lies of revisionist history.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! I pray you will have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.

Hear the word of Yehovah, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, “He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.” For Yehovah has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of Yehovah — for wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of the flock and the herd; their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, and they shall sorrow no more at all. Jeremiah 31:10-12

So…, Trump. Now What? How to Pray.

18 11 2016

trump-prayer-shawlPraying for President-elect Trump is an opportunity for me to explain a wider concept of intercessory prayer. Have you heard of prophetic intercession? It is a completely different approach to prayer. A friend and brother recently asked for my thoughts on the subject; and it seems worthy of sharing more widely. Contrast prophetic intercession with what I call “pathetic” intercession. Please don’t whine when you talk to God. Prayer is conversation with God; so be adult about it. He has made certain promises which He expects us to remind Him about, and hold Him to them. Pray with a basis for expecting Him to do what we ask because He said He would.

Praying for the new President and “leader of the free world” is a sobering assignment and is not for the faint of heart. The future of our country, Israel and indeed the world is at stake. So, let’s look at a few simple ideas about prophetic prayer.

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. Romans 13:1-2

Prophetic Intercession – a Twelve Step Plan

  1. Pray into what God has already declared He will do.
  2. Prayers are answered if you pray what God wants.
  3. Don’t whine or beg; but agree with God.
  4. Authority is from above; God’s heart, not your heart. (King David Acts 13:22)
  5. Pathetic intercession is about what I want (general, all about me).
  6. Prophetic intercession is targeted (specific, God’s plan). Example: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    May they prosper who love you. Psalm 122:6 This is a prayer God will answer.
  7. What do you see God doing? Pray into that.
  8. What do you hear God saying? Pray into that.
  9. What has God already said and done? Base your request accordingly.
  10. Requires scriptural foundation.
  11. Requires hearing the Holy Spirit
  12. Requires seeing by the Holy Spirit (Elisha and his servant 2 Kings 6): eyes to “see”.

And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:19-21

Native American Historic Forgiveness

25 10 2016

all-tribes“TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY.” An extraordinary event happened in Washington, DC last Friday while no one was watching. Representatives of nearly all native American nations gathered for one purpose in prayer led by Chief Dr. Negiel Big Pond. They were there to declare forgiveness to the United States of America for all the  treaties broken by the US. If you don’t know the history, almost every treaty was broken. The US government has a miserable record toward the sovereign Indian nations.

Chiefs and leaders from 1,000 tribes met to simply forgive. The US did not ask for it. Indian leaders initiated it out of Christian love, as a way to remove America from the righteous consequences of broken governmental vows. This is is their statement:

“We, the All Tribes DC Council invite all Tribes and Nations to join us on October 21, 2016 at the Washington Memorial in Washington, DC to release the power of forgiveness and to bring healing and restoration to America.
As indigenous people of this land, we carry a governmental responsibility to bring a Nation back to its ordained purpose. A representation of Nations within a Nation, we believe in an outcome that will yield a bountiful harvest of souls through the power of forgiveness.
This is the first time in the history of America that the First Nations people will lead a National Day of Prayer for the healing of this Great Country. It’s time for us to take our rightful place in the Body of Christ and lead this Great Awakening!” All Tribes DC

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES FORGIVING U.S.A. FOR EVERY BROKEN TREATY  (a full report from Rick Joyner)

TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. Very few may even know that anything special happened. Jesus even said that the kingdom came “without observation,” or unnoticed. Some of the greatest things happen that way, and only a very few who have their eyes open, and are looking in the right direction, see them. So what is happening today that is so special?

One Thousand North American Indian Tribes from the U.S. and Canada are sponsoring a special ceremony on the Mall in Washington to forgive the U.S. Government for all of its broken treaties. In Scripture, breaking a vow or treaty brings a curse on the land, and the U.S. Government broke every treaty it made with the Native American Tribes. Chief Negiel Bigpond, the primary coordinator for this event, told me that they were going to forgive the U.S. whether we asked for it or not, simply because they do not want our country to suffer the consequences of this any longer. This is one of the most noble acts of true Christian charity I have ever heard of by any people group.

Have we suffered because of the curse that comes when we break an agreement? We have suffered profoundly, and virtually every major crisis America is facing right now is a reflection of the crisis on that the Native Americans have endured on the reservations that were directly caused by the broken treaties. A couple of years ago Chief Bigpond shared about a ten minute address with a room full of high impact leaders and some world class thinkers, which he titled, “Welcome to the Reservation.” He connected all of the crises we had been discussing to what they faced on the reservations, and when he finished it shut down the meeting as no one else there wanted to speak after such a profound revelation, besides, we had possibly the most important answer to the crises.
This is very real. National injustices are a major issue we’re facing now whether we want to or not, and this is a big one. We will continue on the road to oblivion if we do not consequences of injustices that were sometimes done generations ago, but are still a festering, infected would that is poisoning the whole body.
I’ve known Negiel for many years, and I’ve never seen him ever display a victim mentality, or bitterness. I call him “the happiest Indian” and I think he may be. He’s a transcendent leader and thinker of such stature possibly because he does not waste his time on pettiness, and he so easily forgives. I once asked Chief Bigpond if he was offended by the Washington Redskins name, and his reply was, “Only when they play bad.” One thousand tribes are going to forgive us today simply because they don’t want us to suffer for wrongs done to them. Have you ever heard of anything so noble? How would our world change if we all started to think like that? ~ Rick Joyner

UN Revisionism

14 10 2016

dry-bones-bds-revisionism

UNESCO backs resolution ignoring Jewish link to Temple Mount You can’t make this stuff up. Now the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has voted to make the Temple Mount in Jerusalem a Muslim holy site exclusively. The decision effectively denies 3,000 years of Jerusalem as the Jewish Capitol. It also claims that the Western Wall is Muslim. What foolishness. The tragedy is that much of the world will believe it. The anti-Semitic anti-Israel propaganda has reached new lows for blatant lies and revisionist history.

Prime Minister Netanyahu understandably reacted strongly. Netanyahu called the decision “absurd,” while President Reuven Rivlin called it an “embarrassment” for UNESCO… “To say that Israel has no link to the Temple Mount is like saying that China has no link to the Great Wall or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,” Netanyahu said, adding that “with this absurd decision UNESCO has lost what little legitimacy it still had.” He also said UNESCO was ignorant regarding the Bible, and accused the body of taking part in a “Theater of the Absurd.” What’s next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?

Deputy Foreign Minister Hotovely: UNESCO decision an ‘affront’ to Jews and Christians

Israel suspends cooperation with UNESCO over Jerusalem vote. Bennett says all work with ‘history-denying’ global body will be halted, as resolution ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites ‘gives boost to terrorism’

Trump slams UNESCO decision. Trump, Netanyahu, lawmakers, slam UNESCO declaration that Israel has no historic ties to Temple Mount.

Happy 5777 New Year!

4 10 2016

shofarJewish New Year 5777 began Sunday night with the sounding of the trumpets around the world. What will the coming year hold for this planet? With the Jewish year started and 2017 only three months away, storm clouds seems to be everywhere. From Hurricane Matthew, to the US break with Russia over Syria, to the economic crisis, to the major US presidential elections, foreboding signs abound.

But it is not all gloom and doom if you believe in Yehovah God and Jesus, His Messiah Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah. My preference to gloom and doom is doom and va-voom! Zionist Christians along with Jews are observing Trumpets, Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles. Prophetically, this is the time for repentance, reflection and hope. This is the very season that the Messiah comes, at the sounding of the trumpets (Yom Teruah).

So, don’t lose faith. Don’t look down, but look up. Our redemption is drawing near. Yes, there are clearly predicted prophetic events yet to unfold, but Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. God said He would tabernacle among us! Run to the Rock of Yehovah to find refuge!

The name of Yehovah is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. Psalm 18:10

Yehovah lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted. Psalm 18:46

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “Yehovah is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 10:5-6

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Policy or Personality?

28 09 2016

“If you want to make America great again, seek the One who made America great the first time.” (Pastor Ken Lawrence),

My brother is pastor of River of Life Church in Sandpoint, Idaho. His statement sums up the heart of Christians everywhere. Our future is bigger than the candidates in the election. Typical politics make it about personality when it is always really about policy. Folks who opposed the leftist policy agenda of President Obama were accused of racism. The same agenda now touted by Hillary draws accusations of sexism. My prayer is that America will wake up to the “wrong track” reality of that agenda.

Democrats will win and democracy will lose, if we are distracted from’ policy. I challenge every believer reading this to consider the stated goals of the party platforms. One is rooted in Biblical values and the other has moved far left. As a Christian Zionist, Israel policy is at the top of my list. On Israel, the Republican Platform is the most pro-Israel in history, while the Democratic Platform is the most anti-Israel in history. But that is only one issue. Consider this clear comparison from LIFE SITE News.      (Click here for enlarged PDF)

YES! Pray, pray, pray, but VOTE! It is your Christian duty in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! Many have fought and died for our voting privilege. Don’t squander it.

The Holy Spirit gave me a verse in February that I first thought was “exposing” Trump. It speaks of pride, arrogance, evil and a perverse mouth. However, I now believe it exposed at a far more insidious evil revealed by the full-throated policy of the Democratic Party. If you are a believer, and you have seriously studied the above chart; can you really vote for their platform? Are you voting for the person or the policy?

The fear of Yehovah is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, all the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:13-17

Don’t Feed the Animals

23 09 2016

don't feedThe food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in its history.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals,” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves. (Thanks to Dave McCurdy for this.)

Does anyone notice a disconnect here?

This bothers me on three levels. First, is the obvious fact that our government is systematically creating total dependence on its services. Between welfare and government employees, 50% of Americans now depend directly on the government for their “daily bread”. The transfer from depending on God to man is breathtakingly arrogant, and is accelerating.

Second, this creates a “demanding spirit”. Derek Prince, Bible teacher and mentor, used a profound phrase: “You can never satisfy a demanding spirit”. A genuine, sincere request can be answered. But once people get something for nothing, they always want more.Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied. Proverbs 27:20 There is a satanic spirit behind the demands. It is also illustrated in the demands of terrorists. All attempts to meet their demands are only answered with more demands. Appeasement is a dead end.

Third, never cast your pearls before swine. Jesus taught, that not valuing your gestures, they would turn and attack you! Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you. Matthew 7:6

There is a place for food stamps for truly needy people, but it should have the goal of independence rather than unending dependence. The same can be said of nearly unlimited unemployment benefits. There are now operational plans where the benefits lead to actual employment. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Censoring Trump

6 09 2016

trump-prayer-shawlThere are a growing number of reports about the liberal media openly opposing Donald Trump’s presidential run. The latest example has dangerous implications for Jews, Christians and our American political system. Consider the censorship last Saturday.

Saturday Trump spoke at a black Christian church in Detroit. After he finished speaking, the pastor, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, presented him with a Talit, a Jewish prayer shawl, along with a Messianic Jewish Bible. As the pastor quoted “with God nothing is impossible,” the video feed suddenly blacked out in mid-sentence.

It turns out that the video feed was cut intentionally by order of the Director of the Reuters News Agency who was providing the single pool feed for all networks. It was done over the objections of the cameraman. I conclude that the topic was rejected by Reuters for three reasons.

  1. It was very positive for Trump to be honored by a black pastor and contradicts the media narrative that no African Americans will vote for him.
  2. The pastor clearly made a connection to honoring Israel and Christians who share common Jewish roots. After the video was cut, the pastor went on to point out that Jesus was a Jew and most of His early followers were Jews. (Here is a link to a cell phone that caught the rest of the presentation: Facebook video – You need to have Facebook to listen and watch this part.)
  3. The Scripture being quoted by the pastor was a strong declaration of Christian and Jewish faith that the Director tried to block.

The Hebrew God Who Has No Name

30 08 2016

Hebrew God cover photoMy brand new book has arrived! Please consider ordering it online by clicking on the picture. It is time that we learn to use God’s name, which is Yehovah. Here is a brief synopsis from the Introduction:

“My title comes from the classic movie, The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Pharaoh. The Pharaoh, who worships many gods, mocks Moses as bringing “the Hebrew God who has no name.” However, the opposite is true. Moses was sent to declare the personal name of God, as clearly seen here in Exodus at the burning bush:

God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘Yehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” Exodus 3:15: ESV

Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4 

The ultimate intent of Yehovah God is not to be the “Hebrew God who has no name”. However, in the current status quo, the Name of the Creator God of Scripture is missing. The good news? God intends to restore His Holy Name, especially in the context of the rise of Islam’s pagan deity. This book reveals and restores the Name of Yehovah God and gives the people who are called by His Name, His identity. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob wants the world to know Him by His Name.

Today, our planet is as lost and enslaved as the Hebrews in Egypt; and we see Yehovah God again revealing, restoring and declaring His Name. Please follow along this journey of rediscovery as we find not only the truth of His name, but the purpose of using His name in the 21st Century.” The Hebrew God Who Has No Name

Here is the Table of Contents:

Introduction

  • The Problem of the Missing Name
  1. The Hidden “LORD” Code
  2. When God First Revealed His Name

Action Points

Thank you for your prayers for this project, that it will be used to open the eyes of the people of Yehovah God, both Jews and Christians, to a new intimacy with Abba God our Father in Heaven, who indeed has a name used over 6,800 times in the Hebrew text of Scripture. It is mistranslated as LORD, but now is the time with the rise of Islam’s counterfeit god that we use the covenant Name once again, Yehovah!

End of Season Sale: Pay Now Play Later?

23 08 2016

Dry Bones Clinton FoundationDoreen and I were just discussing this. By announcing that foreign governments will not be able to buy influence through the Clinton Foundation if Hillary is elected, they have made it clear. Send money now! It’s your last chance. They can still contribute right up to November 8. That is the message.

How far we have fallen from integrity and trust in our beloved United States. We must pray for God’s mercy. I know many are thinking they can’t vote for either candidate, but I see a binary choice, one or the other. We need to hear from God’s Holy Spirit, and applying all wisdom from above; we must vote!

Too many brave men and women have died for our precious freedom to vote. Please don’t throw it away. Use your vote. The platforms are opposites. The contrast between liberal/conservative, insider/outsider, status quo/change, pro-abortion/pro-life, anti-Israel (as in more of the same)/pro-Israel and then there is the marriage issue, the bathroom issue, corruption and on and on, ad nauseam.

Many are sick of it already, with 77 days to go. But don’t lose heart. Here are two reasons to believe God for mercy for America.

  • There are still millions of believers in Yeshua who have not bowed their knees to Baal. Pray. Hard.

“Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” 1 Kings 19:18

  • Our nation has sent the Gospel around the world: Jesus, the Bread of Life. We are now the recipient of many missionaries from far nations bringing the Gospel back to these shores for a Third Great Awakening.
Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1

Pray for Israel. Pray for America. Pray. Hard.

Trump, Brexit and Christian Zionism

What Do Trump, Brexit and Christian Zionism Have in Common?

I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Genesis 12:2-3

Pray for One Another

1 07 2016

LOLConfess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 NLT

A new phenomenon has emerged in Christian relationships with non-Christians. We are offering to pray for them when they share a need or a hurt. God responds by touching them in such a way that they know He did. It may be healing or they may feel “electricity” or heat or fire in their body. It is a reversal of traditional “witnessing” where we started with their sin and their “lostness” rather than their pain.

This is patterned after the Luke 10 model of first blessing, then fellowship, then sharing their hurts and then prayer. It is at this point, after God acts, that we can share the Kingdom of God.

Speak peace (blessing) – “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ Luke 10:5

Eat and fellowship – “And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give,” Luke 10:6

Heal the hurts – “And heal the sick there,” Luke 10:9a

Share the Gospel – “say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke 10:9b

A friend in our home group has been praying for people out in the marketplace for several months with supernatural healing testimonies every week. Another friend is spending the summer in Germany sharing Jesus with Muslim refugees and also seeing supernatural results. He has talked to several who have a story of “a man in white” in their dreams, leading to salvation and baptism. Some even experience severe persecutions from other Muslims and their own families.

The key is to pray with them. We all need to offer to pray for anyone who shares their pain and need with us. It is what allows Yehovah God the Father to touch them through Jesus and the Holy Spirit; in a way that opens their heart to His Kingdom.

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!

What Would Jesus Say?

Terror War is Not Human

17 06 2016

Dry Bones Religious programmingThe debate this week has been about using the phrase: “radical Islamic terrorism.” However, even using that phrase misses the real problem. This is not simply a human war. There are real living spiritual demonic forces behind the human activity.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NLT

Most view Islam and Sharia as only a political ideology. They see the religion as less significant. But Islam is a demonically empowered religion. Communism might have conquered the world if it had a religious fanaticism component. Islam is more dangerous because it has the political world supremacist ideology married to the fundamentalist religious spirit.

Jesus warned about bothThen He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” Mark 8:15 NKJV

The leaven of the Pharisees was the religious spirit of “self-righteousness.” The leaven of Herod was the political spirit of “self-interest.” Communist supremacy, Nazi supremacy, and even “white” supremacy are all primarily political. Islam is both.

Most Christians are aware that God gave us the power of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2. Most also know that the Greek word translated “power” is “dunamis.” It is the root of our English words “dynamic” and “dynamite.” However, most Christians don’t know about the revelation of Luke 10. The King James translation for generations read like this:

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19 KJV

Notice that the word “power” is used twice. This choice of the translators had the effect of hiding an important revelation. They are not both “dunamis” in the Greek. The first one is actually the Greek word for jurisdiction or jurisdictional authority. Later translations read like this:

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19 NKJV

So, the devil has dunamis power and we have dunamis power. The difference is that followers of Jesus have authority or jurisdiction over the enemy power. Therefore, our victory over the spiritual forces arrayed against us, depends completely on the authority of Jesus that has been given to us to overcome the enemy. Praise God! So let’s do it. Make sure you battle in the spiritual dimension. Don’t allow distractions to human issues.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Israel Exists = God Exists

1 06 2016

536748_385193128190099_100000982451242_1074228_1062423626_nIsrael is profound proof of the existence of Yehovah, the God of the Bible. A Messianic ministry in Israel is producing a series of videos calling Israeli Jews back to their roots in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Please enjoy the video. (Click here if it doesn’t load).

The rebirth of Israel as a nation-state, in such perfect correspondence with prophecies thousands of years old, is the most tangible evidence that God is real, and that He is faithful to His word. The above video is part of a much larger series produced by the Messianic ministry One For Israel on their Internet portal iGod.co.il (Hebrew only). The aim of these videos is to cause fellow Israeli Jews, so many of whom have turned their backs on God in their frustration with today’s religious authorities, to reëxamine the evidence before them. Israel Today 5-30-16

“For you are a holy people to Yehovah your God; Yehovah your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. Yehovah did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because Yehovah loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, Yehovah has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 
Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:6-9

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Israel Government Shift

20 05 2016

LibermanThis week while I am speaking in Idaho, Israel has seen a major change in its governing coalition. Even after months of back channel pressure from Britain, U.S. and Egypt to choose a liberal path, Netanyahu surprised all by moving right. Instead of forming a “unity” with the Labor party, he invited a conservative party, expanding unity on the right.

Avigdor Liberman is head of Yisrael Beytenu, a conservative party representing Russian immigrants and settlers. He is a “settler” himself. Even the description is a loaded term, because Israel considers all of it citizens equally. Living in Judea or Samaria, (called West Bank by globalists and anti-Israel propaganda).

This means Israel will stand  in stronger agreement with Bible prophecy. The two-state idea is dead. The real answer is annexation of Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian leaders will never accept a Jewish state of any size. This week, they have again denied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

2,500 Year-old Prophecy for Today

17 05 2016

nebuchadnezzars-imageThe prophet Daniel wrote over 2,500 years ago at the end of the Babylonian Captivity. He heard from God, and the word applies today. The Lord spoke to me this morning from a song written by my old friend, Ron Aldridge, years ago. from Daniel, chapter 2. I can still sing parts of it, although I think he has forgotten it himself. It comes from the King’s dream that only Daniel could interpret. As you know, it was a vision of world history and the great empires.

This part is often overlooked for the dream, but contains great revelation for today. Daniel was thanking God for giving him the answer. Today we are on the verge of the last great prophetic season change.

Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
Daniel answered and said:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
I thank You and praise You,
O God of my fathers;
You have given me wisdom and might,
And have now made known to me what we asked of You,
For You have made known to us the king’s demand.” Daniel 2:19-23

There is so much in these verses.  First, he blessed God for His wisdom and might. Then Daniel lists seven things God does. Each is so profound it will explode in your spirit if you let them soak into your core. To save space, I underlined each action verb.

Changes Times and Seasons – I believe we are at the final turning point of history. In the United States, if you thought the election has been wild, fasten your seat-belt. Greater turbulence lies ahead. We are entering a new un-chartered season. Yet, we do not fear. Daniel ends his prayer of thanks with an amazing declaration. The attribute of God that Daniel began with is now his! You have given me wisdom and might.” Wow! If God had not answered, Daniel and all the wise men of Babylon would have been executed.

The season is changing, but God is with us. Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. Ask big things. Expect big answers. Yehovah, God of wisdom and might, shares His with us! Might is deadly without wisdom. Make sure to pray for both. Pray for our leaders and this election season, but know that there is a greater season upon us.

Yehovah God is Faithful!

Light Flash at Human Conception

Bright flash of light marks incredible moment life begins when sperm meets egg

Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film. 

An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception. Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in other animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.

Not only is it an incredible spectacle, highlighting the very moment that a new life begins, the size of the flash can be used to determine the quality of the fertilized egg. 

What a wonderful story about the moment life bursts into existence at conception. This is a good news story to brighten you day. Northern Idaho is the location for my current ministry trip. Just seeing the incredible beauty all around with the mountains and lakes and fir trees gives me sweet refreshing. It is ministry to my spirit. Be sure to click on the link above for the full article. There is a 35 second video also on the site.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14

London Buses: Glory to Pagan god

10 05 2016

busAs I leave for an Idaho ministry trip, thought you might find this interesting. London has elected its first Muslim Mayor and critics are calling it Londonstan. Some areas of the city are over 50% Muslim.

Separate from this, but coincidental is a new ad campaign on London buses that say: Glory to A-lh, using the name of the god of Islam, as you can see in the above photo. It is happening faster than you think!

All this while the U.S. is arguing over who can use the ladies restrooms and showers. Maybe there should be a course in our schools about the rise and fall of Rome. We are on the same path. God bless Governor McCrory.

Yet, all is not lost. Jesus is still on the throne. Millions are still coming to the Messiah, including Muslims. Praise the Lord! Keep faithful to Yehovah God and His Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

Please pray for me for this Idaho ministry, speaking 6 or 7 times. Greetings to my Idaho family!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
