You Said It, You Did It.

25 03 2019

Prime Minister Netanyahu made another of his excellent speeches today in the White House with President Trump. The occasion was the Declaration of the US recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights in northern Israel. This one-minute clip highlights the fact that President Trump does what he says he will do. The PM mentions four times that the President said he would do something for Israel and each time he did. Therefore, he is Israel’s best friend. (Click here for the full fourteen-minute video.)

During my recent Florida ministry, I declared everywhere that we should pray for the spirit of Haman (from the Book of Esther) to be bound and the evil plot exposed. Today we see that happening in the news, with the Mueller Report finding no collusion. Also, one of Trump’s worst critics, Michael Avenatti, was arrested for multiple criminal acts. The Golan decision is part of allowing the Jews to defend themselves.

Now we wait for the results of two more reports that will likely be shocking to the Haman plotters.

Trump allies await results of two internal probes  – Trump allies are now awaiting the results of two long-running internal probes that could expose the back story behind the Russia probe’s beginnings — and provide more detail on already-documented misconduct among top FBI and DOJ officials.

  1. DOJ Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz confirmed at a panel discussion last week that his office is continuing to review potential surveillance abuses by the FBI, a review that began last March and that Fox News is told is nearing completion.

  2. Republicans, meanwhile, are increasingly looking for answers from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber, who was appointed a year ago by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review not only surveillance abuses by the FBI and DOJ, but also authorities’ handling of the probe into the Clinton Foundation

The attempted genocide of the Jews has been repeated throughout history, yet Yehovah God has preserved them to this very day.

When Haman saw that Mordecai would not bow down or show him respect, he was filled with rage. He had learned of Mordecai’s nationality, so he decided it was not enough to lay hands on Mordecai alone. Instead, he looked for a way to destroy all the Jews throughout the entire empire of Xerxes. Esther 3:5-6 NLT

We must continue to intercede for our nation and for Israel, where Netanyahu is under similar accusations from the same spirit of Haman. God is moving, but we must keep praying.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Our 2019 Purim Prayer!

10 03 2019

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As Doreen and I travel on our Florida ministry tour, a strong prophetic word has emerged at each event. “Pray for the spirit of Haman to be exposed!” This Wednesday at sunset is the beginning of Purim, the Jewish observance of the great victory in the Book of Esther. Haman plotted the total genocide of all Jews in his day. Only the courageous intervention of Esther reversed the plot, after it was exposed.

Today we see the same evil spirit of Haman plotting the overthrow of God’s purpose to bless Israel in political attacks on both President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu. Both men are being used by Yehovah God in His restoration and favor of Israel. We must pray for them both as never before.

Israel elections are April 9th and could swing Israel to the left, but for God. Media has proclaimed a lie that Netanyahu has been indicted, but he has not. It was announced that there may be enough to indict, but the next legal proceeding is a hearing where he can defend himself with witnesses. Only then will the decision be made whether to indict. The catch is that the hearing cannot take place till after the election. Is it a coincidence that this confusion will taint the election? Pray that Haman’s evil plan will backfire.

Personal Update: We have enjoyed wonderful ministry at each stop with numerous personal ministry appoints, reunions (Happy anniversary Kevin & Roseanne), and four public meetings with one more to go. We managed to enjoy our favorite pizza place on Clearwater Beach and several long beach walks (see sunset photo above). We always love our time at “the Raymond resort” with our dear friends. Thanks to Gulf Coast Church for their hospitality and lodging, and the bonus Lee University Campus Choir concert. The next few day are in Ft. Meyers and Naples (thanks Duane).Please continue your prayer support for our last meeting Thursday night with Fred & Tracy Norris in Charleston, SC.

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

Time to wake up, stand up, and speak up for Israel and the purpose of God! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

President Trump as Mordecai

13 04 2018
Mordecai Pieter_Pietersz._Lastman_-_The_Triumph_of_Mordechai

The Triumph of Mordecai by Pieter Lastman, 1624.

Several comparisons apply to this President, with Cyrus of Persia being the clearest. (See Isaiah 45) However, I can’t stop  meditating on the striking similarities between Trump and Mordecai the Jew, in the Book of Esther. Mordecai’s mortal enemy was Haman, the Agagite (more on Agag and the spirit of Amalek). Haman deviously plotted to kill Mordecai and all the Jews of the Persian Empire.

Haman even built a gallows 75 feet high to hang Mordecai. But in the end, the plot was reversed a hundred and eighty degrees through the intervention of Esther (thus the title of the book). The turnaround was so complete that Haman was hung on his own gallows and the King decreed that the Jews could rise up and defend themselves. The application to Israel today is unmistakable.

So let’s get to my point regarding President Trump. He is likewise the subject of a devious plot to destroy him. But I see a complete reversal about to unfold that will be nothing short of miraculous. The truth will come out that there was no Trump/Russia collusion, and the hidden plot will be revealed, exposing real Russia collusion. Also, it will lead to the destruction of the plotters.

Therefore, we must pray and intercede even more for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail. Mordecai’s word to Queen Esther applies to us. We called as prophetic intercessors for this very hour.

 “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory – Here is a summary:

At the end of the Book of Esther, the world gets turned upside down (or, right-side up): the bad guy who seemed to be on the verge of a horrible victory gets hanged, the good guy takes his place in the king’s court, and the party of people about to commit a massacre become massacred themselves. Everything runs in reverse, overturning all expectations.

As for the gallows itself, well, it’s really big (75 feet)—outlandishly and pointlessly so. It demonstrates the egotism and wicked madness of Haman to the world (even though building it was technically his wife’s idea). He constructs the gallows as a horrible, over-the-top way of pursuing an unjust personal vendetta—killing Mordecai—but it backfires and ends up being used to kill the person who built it. The irony—the ancient irony! https://www.shmoop.com/esther/gallows-symbol.html

We know we are near a conclusion of the Russian collusion story. The question is which way it will go. Look for major surprises opposite from what the anti-Trumpers are expecting. Of course, in the end only Yehovah God knows, so we pray for His mercy and His purpose to be accomplished, for us and for Israel. As long as our president continues to stand with Israel, our nation will be blessed.

As I finish this post, the limited strike on Syrian chemical assets has been announced. The fact that one facility was in Damascus reminds of the Isaiah 17 prophecy of its destruction. This was not it tonight, but we are in the prophetic timing where it could happen very soon. Pray and watch for God’s plan.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Deceit Meets Truth at Purim

26 02 2018
Megillat_Esther_(1)

The opening chapter of a hand-written scroll of the Book of Esther, with reader’s pointer – Purim begins at sundown this Wednesday.

Haman and Mordecai in the Book of Esther have a direct application to today’s news. For several week my heart has heard that there is going to be a major reversal of all the accusations and intrigue against President Trump. The deceit has reached “Biblical proportions” that cries out for truth and justice.

Haman, the Jew’s enemy in Esther, nearly succeeded in the genocide of the Jews in the Persian Empire (modern-day Iran). However, through the courageous appeal of Esther, the King counteracted his decree and saved the Jews. But justice also prevailed against deceitful Haman. He had prepared gallows to hang Mordecai, but in the end was hung on his own gallows.

 

Now Harbonah, one of the eunuchs, said to the king, “Look! The gallows, fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai, who spoke good on the king’s behalf, is standing at the house of Haman.” Then the king said, “Hang him on it!” So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided. Esther 7:9-10

My suggestion to you intercessors is to pray that the trap that has been set for the President will rather end up entrapping the deceivers. My faith is that Yehovah God is working behind the scenes to expose the wicked plots in fulfillment of His divine purpose of one last great awakening in the United States. God doesn’t care about our politics, He is establishing His Kingdom and His Son as King. Pray about it.

Also He (Jesus) said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 4:21-23

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!

Happy Purim

11 03 2017

Dry Bones Purim 2017

Today and tomorrow Jews around the world celebrate Purim, the festival honoring Esther’s great courage saving the Jews in ancient Persia/Iran. Today Iran again threaten Israel, yet the Jews take time to remember the victory story of Esther (Hebrew name: Hadassah), Mordecai and the evil Haman. Read about it in the Bible’s short Book of Esther.

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” Esther 4:13-16

Global Jihad and Esther: Serious Analysis

22 03 2016

BrusselsMetroexplosion21296_20160322_063650Dozens dead today in Brussels. At least 34 dead as explosions rock Brussels airport, metro Terrorists again attacked innocent civilians, this time in Brussels, Belgium. A news analyst opined that civilian targets were chosen because military targets are harder to attack “because they are hardened” and soft targets are easier. This is not why. Civilians are attacked because the goal is terror, not military conquest.

The Esther Solution: This week, Jews all over the world celebrate Purim, the great victory over their enemies in the Book of Esther. The basis of their win was simple: self-defense. The King had issued a law allowing the execution of all Jews. Esther’s famous story “for such a time as this” and “if I perish, I perish,” resulted not in reversing the law, but in a new degree allowing the Jews to defend themselves. What a concept!

Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month of Adar, on the thirteenth day, the time came for the king’s command and his decree to be executed. On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them. The Jews gathered together in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hands on those who sought their harm. And no one could withstand them, because fear of them fell upon all people. And all the officials of the provinces, the satraps, the governors, and all those doing the king’s work, helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them. Esther 9:1-3 (You should read this short Book of Esther this week for Purim.)

What does this have to do with global jihad?  Europe is one big “gun-free zone.” Citizens are not allowed to defend themselves. Believe it or not, the solution is not simply a 2nd Amendment argument. This Esther principle is the global solution for nations. Israel (as usual) is the classic example. Their correct justification for military action is that they have a national right and a personal right to defend themselves. Their enemies also attack civilian soft targets. The difference in Israel, is that they fight back. In the United States we still have the 2nd Amendment, although it is seriously undermined, but Europe is defenseless.

The goal of Haman in Esther was the death of every Jew. That is the same demonic principality unleashed today. Only now, it includes Christians, and by extension, the Western free world. Are you willing to stand up for Israel today? We are in this together, make no mistake.

Here is the warning that Mordecai gave Esther.

“Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14
