Breaking Israel News X2

Israel elections 2019

Two big stories from Israel today deserve your prayerful consideration.

  1. Reports: Israel Slated for Early Elections as Netanyahu Coalition Breaks UpNetanyahu had met the education minister, Naftali Bennett, who wanted the defence ministry post in the right-wing government, but the meeting ended with a decision by cabinet members to hold national polls, which were previously due in November 2019.
  2. Trump Admin Moves Toward Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights – For the first time ever, the United States on Friday intended to vote against an annual UN resolution condemning Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights. Ever since Israel seized control of the strategic plateau on the 1967 Six Day War, the US has abstained when the resolution titled “The Occupied Syrian Golan” was brought to a vote. (Also see: In first, US votes against UN resolution condemning Israeli presence in Golan)

We rejoice that the US finally took a stand for the Golan in the UN. Pray that we will openly declare our acceptance of Israel’s 1980’s annexation of the Golan Heights. The Golan has been at peace since the 1967 Six Day War. However, every peace agreement leads to violence and war, whereas Israel’s wars end in peace. Remember this when Israel finally decides to re-enter Gaza and establish peace through Israeli control.

On the looming election in the Spring, pray that Yehovah God of Israel will strengthen Netanyahu to hear and do God’s will.

My help comes from Yehovah, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. Yehovah himself watches over you! Yehovah stands beside you as your protective shade. Psalm 121:2-5

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Miraculous Mercy in Israel

12 11 2018

BUS-FIRE-GAZA-12.11.18

Minutes after Israeli troops got off their bus, it was hit by an anti-tank missile from Gaza. It was truly the mercy of Yehovah God that only one soldier was injured. At one point, 200 missiles were fired in only two hours, more than one a minute. 60 were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense.

Rockets from Gaza pass 300 in five and-half hours The successive salvos of rockets from the Gaza Strip in five and a half hours on Monday climbed past 300 at 10 p.m. The second direct hit in Ashkelon caused extensive damage in a residential district. One person was injured.  In the first, the damage to a four-story residential building was heavy, but all the residents made it to shelters in time to escape harm.

Attacks from Gaza have injured 22 Israelis today — medical officials Times of Israel

Update Tuesday: ‘Miracle’ Kept 50 IDF Soldiers From Being Killed by Hamas Missile

Here is the video of the bus attack from Hamas TV.

Safety of Abiding in the Presence of Yehovah

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of Yehovah, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow (MISSILE)that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. Psalm 91:1-3

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

European Union Kills Free Speech

29 10 2018

ECHR

Free speech is not free anymore in Europe. Last week, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), ruled that a woman who spoke a historical truth about Mohammed was guilty of speech violations and must pay a fine of 480 euros plus legal fees.

A European court has ruled that saying bad things about the Muslim prophet Mohammad is verboten, and state punishment is appropriate.
The European Court of Human Rights has ruled a woman convicted by an Austrian court of calling the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile did not have her freedom of speech rights infringed.
 
The woman, named only as Mrs. S, 47, from Vienna, was said to have held two seminars in which she discussed the marriage between the Prophet Mohammad and a six-year old girl, Aisha….Mrs S. was later convicted in February 2011 by the Vienna Regional Criminal Court for disparaging religious doctrines and ordered her to pay a fine of 480 euros plus legal fees. Prophecy News Watch

Calling Prophet Muhammad a pedophile does not fall within freedom of speech: European court The ECHR ruled against an Austrian woman who claimed calling the Prophet Muhammad a pedophile was protected by free speech. The applicant claimed she was contributing to public debate. 

 

SHOULD IT BE ILLEGAL TO CALL MOHAMMED A PAEDOPHILE? The ECHR have decided that truth is not a justification – Should you be allowed to say that the founder of one of the world’s largest religions was a paedophile? According to the European Court of Human Rights the answer is ‘no’. In a decision issued this week the Court in Strasbourg ruled that this statement is defamatory towards the prophet of Islam, ‘goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate’ and ‘could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace.’ 

To a Muslim, this is basic Sharia Law. Obvious. Blasphemous. In some Muslim countries, it is worthy of the death penalty. We need to be aware that curtailing free speech, even bad speech that we don’t like, will ultimately lead to the loss of free speech itself. If that ever happens in the U.S., our republic will fall. I remind you of a stark warning from the Bible:

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Pray that our God-given inalienable rights will prevail in America. Also, keep praying for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

High Idaho Desert

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.

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.

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

28 09 2018

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.
