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.

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.

100 Rockets from Gaza Today

There is no sign of  a slowdown of projectiles fired from Gaza into Israel today. Israel hit back, hitting 40 Hamas targets after the first 35 rockets and then 25 more targets after a second 35 rockets this evening. (Now, over 100.) “No Sign of Ceasefire…:  Israel Today Live blog

At US behest UN Security Council to hold urgent meeting on Gaza barragesNations to convene Wednesday; Haley says council should be ‘outraged’ over rocket, mortar fire at Israeli civilians and ‘Palestinian leadership needs to be held accountable’. “The recent attacks out of Gaza are the largest we have seen since 2014,” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in a statement.

Earlier, Hamas and the Iran-backed Islamic Jihad released a joint statement claiming responsibility for the dozens of rockets and mortar shells fired at southern Israel throughout the day. Israel holds Hamas responsible for all violence emanating from the coastal enclave, as it has ruled Gaza since 2007.

As near as I can tell from early reports, there are two Israeli civilians and three soldiers with non life threatening injuries so far. One rocket fell near a kindergarten before school. There are no Israelis living in Gaza since 2007 and no troops stationed there. Yet, the duped world press shouts: “Occupation!”

Top minister warns Israel on cusp of war with Gaza: Israel Katz says neither side wants war but ‘we have a red line’; Steinitz: Israel could be forced to conquer Strip if rocket attacks continue. Israel is the closest its been to war in Gaza since the 2014 war with Hamas, Intelligence Minister Israel Katz told Army Radio Tuesday evening, following a day of intense rocket and mortar fire from the Strip and retaliatory Israeli strikes.

This calls for some serious prayerful intercession. Please join with us in prayer for peace in Israel. Most of the world stands opposed to Israel, but Yehovah God is watching over her and will protect Israel. He turned the page in 1948 after 1900 years of judgement. He is now restoring favor and blessing and prosperity to Israel. Through many wars and rumors of wars He is faithful, and Israel only grows stronger.

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 NLT

Israel Is-Real

16 05 2018

Dry Bones Pal kids

Let’s Get Real! That could be the slogan for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the only capital city the Jews have looked to, for over 3,000 years. NO. OTHER. COUNTRY. HAS. EVER. MADE JERUSALEM. ITS. CAPITAL. CITY.

Reality also needs to be invoked in the Gaza uprising that has consumed most of the media. The nations are ignoring the real history and slamming Israel for the deaths in the Hamas attacks on the Gaza border. They again accuse Israel of killing women and children. Yet, even though Hamas did everything it could, to put women and children in harm’s way, the reality contradicts the propaganda.

Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members – Salah Bardawil’s confirmation means number of acknowledged members of terror groups who died on Monday and Tuesday is now 53 Israel National News

Our local NBC affiliate in Raleigh, NC at 11 PM Monday only showed video of the rioting, but no pictures of the Embassy opening ceremony. Hamas has aimed to destroy Israel for years, nothing new here. But moving our Embassy was a truly historic event, not deemed of any significance at all to WRAL-TV. The only mention was as the motive for Hamas attacking the sovereign border of Israel. Shame on WRAL.

Hamas will fail to destroy the Jews and disappear from history, just as the empires of the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans and every other empire up to now. This includes the Nazis, Soviets and inevitably Islam. This is not because the Jews are any better people, but because Yehovah God, the God who is a father, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob made eternal, unconditional promises to Israel. Their very existence after 3,000 years is a miracle testament to God’s faithfulness to His own word.

“Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign Yehovah: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name, on which you brought shame while you were scattered among the nations.” Ezekiel 36:22

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Israel is One

1 08 2014
It is hard to think of a time when we have been so united. And the internet brings us even closer.

It is hard to think of a time when we have been so united. And the internet brings us even closer.

There is an old saying that if you have two Israelis, you will have three opinions. That is normally true for the feisty new nation. However, the Gaza War has united Israel like few have seen before. One of the points I make in teaching Psalm 83 is that Israel’s enemies are a confederacy, not a unity in their war against Israel. It is encouraging to see the unity of the Israeli people, including many Israeli Arabs and Israeli Christians. Just read Israel Today Magazine for examples.

Today I am sharing two more Dry Bones cartoons from my favorite cartoonist, Yaakov Kirchen, expressing that oneness presently in Israel. I am including his own comments below each cartoon.

It is a serious question. . . .to be answered by a world which will have to deal with an angry, righteous, and united Israel.

Miracle in Gaza: Bullet Embeds in Grenade

28 07 2014

bullet in grenade Gaza 7-27-14An Israeli soldier is alive today thanks to the “miracle” grenade which saved his life in Gaza.

Israel’s Channel 2 News reported that a bullet fired by a Palestinian militant shooting an AK-47 missed the soldier’s body, instead slamming into a hand grenade in one of his pockets. The Israeli news service called it “a double miracle in Gaza” – one because the bullet didn’t hit the soldier’s body and two that the grenade did not detonate. The Blaze.com

Who Calls the IDF a Nazi Army?

The answer sounds like a variation of an old joke, but it is real. I am not making this up. What do you get when you cross Yasser Arafat with Mahmoud Abbas? You get Yasser Abbas, the son of Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority. Remember them? They are the “moderate” peace partners with whom Israel is supposed to negotiate the two-state solution. Yes, the same ones who incite hatred of Jews, refuse to remove the destruction of Israel from their Charter (ditto Hamas), and who are now calling for a third Intifada. You probably need to know a little more about Yasser Abbas. He is one who calls the Israeli Army “a Nazi army.”

Yasser Abbas is a Palestinian Canadian businessman and the son of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.[1] He was named in honor of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.[2] In 1983, he graduated with a degree in civil engineering from Washington State University.[3] His conspicuous wealth has caused “quiet controversy” in the Palestinian Territories.[4]

Despite Abbas’ father being accused—by former economic advisor to Yasir Arafat, Mohammed Rachid—of taking $100 million from the Palestinian government for himself, Abbas claims that his wealth comes from his own businesses.[5] Abbas had worked for a number of contracting firms from the Persian Gulf from the 1980s until he left to Ramallah to start his own company in 1997. Abbas is the current owner of Falcon Tobacco, the company that controls all American made cigarette sales in all Palestinian territories.[6] Yasser Abbas also is the Chairman of the Falcon Holding Group, a Palestinian investment firm that owns Falcon Electric Mechanical Contracting Company (FEMC).[7] However, FEMC’s success hadn’t came without the assist from the U.S. government: The Company had been rewarded a contract for $1.89 million from the U.S. government during the Iraq war to build a sewage system in the town of Hebron.[8] (This is the Yasser Abaas entry in Wikipedia.)

Gaza Inconvenient Truths

18 07 2014
These are top Hamas leaders.

These are top Hamas leaders.

While watching and praying for Israel this week I have discovered three little known truths about Gaza. They are inconvenient because they do not fit the media narrative. For years now Hamas has succeeded in portraying Israel as Goliath and Gaza as David. (Ironic that they choose to pervert a Biblical story.) However, it seems for the first time Israel is gaining ground against the Hamas and PLO propaganda machine. Here are three truths about Gaza that you will not likely see on the evening news.

#1   Gazans Are More Scared of Hamas than Israel. The civilians of Gaza, including Hamas supporters, have begun to express resentment towards the militant organizations that have made their lives hell. Such expressions of dissatisfaction, both to foreign reporters and in private conversations, have become more and more common, and could well signal the beginning of unrest against Hamas. Ynet News.com

#2   Hamas Has Become a Millionaires Club. In recent media interviews, Professor Ahmed Karima of Al-Azhar University in Egypt noted that in recent years Hamas has blossomed into a movement of millionaires. According to Karima, Hamas can boast no fewer than 1,200 millionaires among its leadership and mid-level officials. That assertion was backed up by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, who in 2012 estimated the number of Gaza millionaires to be 800. Israel Today

In particular, overall Hamas leader Khaled Mashal has amassed a fortune of $2.6 billion, the Jordanian media reported. All of this is happening as many Gazans wallow in poverty and struggle with a 40 percent unemployment rate. Imagine how many new jobs could be created by all that money Hamas collects. Instead, the terror group is well pleased to see the people of Gaza suffer, both economically and as a consequence of its violence against Israel, all in service to Hamas’ ultimate goal.

#3   Innocent Gazan Civilians are Responsible Too. Gazans who claim to be victims of their rulers should have rebelled against those building missile bases under their homes. Because they have failed to do so, they will have to pay a price. YnetNews.com

Here is a link to the Hamas Charter for your information.

Believers need to pray for discernment as we read, listen and watch the news. There are innocents in great danger who need our prayers, both Gazans and Israelis.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Hamas Killing Gazans

15 07 2014

Hamas Map-Amlach-new-EN1-640x640Fact: Since July 8, 100 rockets fired from Gaza have fallen within Gaza. Hamas fires from civilian areas…and hits its own people.  7-15-14 (from the Israel Defense Forces IDF Twitter feed)

Hamas uses human shields by firing from schools, mosques, neighborhoods and and ten per cent blow up within Gaza. These casualties are then included in their propaganda statistics claiming they were killed by Israel.

Hear the word of Yehovah to Israel:
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. “Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them—Those who contended with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, Yehovah your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.Isaiah 41:11-12
Hear our prayer to Yehovah, God of Heaven’s armies:
Don’t let my treacherous enemies rejoice over my defeat. Don’t let those who hate me without cause gloat over my sorrow. They don’t talk of peace; they plot against innocent people who mind their own business. They shout, “Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we saw him do it!” O Yehovah, you know all about this. Do not stay silent. Do not abandon me now, O Lord. Wake up! Rise to my defense! Take up my case, my God and my Lord. Declare me not guilty, O Yehovah my God, for you give justice. Don’t let my enemies laugh about me in my troubles. Don’t let them say, “Look, we got what we wanted! Now we will eat him alive!” May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced. May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor. But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, “Great is Yehovah, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!” Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long. Psalm 35:19-28 NLT
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

(As is my custom, 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!)
