Netanyahu Lives Again

Israeli parliamentary politics lurches into the next phase with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu charged with forming the new government.

President “fears for Israel” as he taps Netanyahu to lead government – 24 hours of high political drama once again leaves Netanyahu king of the hill. But can he form a coalition?

Israel: President Rivlin formally nominates Netanyahu with task to form gov’t 

I know it is confusing for Americans to follow, but I will try to explain as clearly as possible. The election ended in a virtual draw again. Even though the conservatives have more than the 61 seats needed, they are fighting among themselves with some wishing to dump Netanyahu. Yet, because he has more seats in his own Likud Party, he is the one to try to “herd the cats” into agreement for a right-wing government. He has 28 days to do it with a possible extension of another 14 days after that. If he fails, another (probably from the left) will be given the same opportunity.

Here is a little inside glimpse into the dilemma from a conversation I had a few years ago with an lsraeli editor who shall remain nameless. He stated that Netanyahu was corrupt. I then assumed he would not vote for Netanyahu, but he said: “No, I will vote for him because he is not as corrupt as the rest.” 

This is the fourth election in two years. One major reason for that is that Netanyahu is on trial (literally), facing three different indictments which are relatively minor in my opinion. They are based on dubious testimony and bear a striking resemblance to American politics. Netanyahu even condemns his accusers of being on a witch hunt. The trial has moved into a new phase with Netanyahu appearing in court just this week. However, the trial may take another three years! The accusations have been hovering around for three years already. It is mainly an excuse to bring him down from Prime Minister. The tactics of the Israeli left look a lot like the American left.

So, how does this all fit with Biblical prophecy? Yehovah, God of Israel, is right on schedule advancing His divine plan of restoration. He will do it with or without Netanyahu, but I still think God is using Netanyahu. God’s purpose is to expand Israel’s sovreignty over more of the Promised Land. The left wants to give half of it to a “Palestinian” state which divides the Land and directly violates God’s will.

“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

Yehovah will judge the nations AFTER He brings back the scattered exiles of Judah and Jerusalem. The judgment is because they DIVIDED THE LAND! That has already occurred in the last one hundred years. We are now in the phase of regathering and restoration. Since 1948 (Israel’s rebirth as a nation), Yehovah has been extending Israel’s territory. The Abraham Accords have further solidified this direction by removing the Palestinian two-state option from being a necessity for peace. The Arab states are choosing peace and normalization. This fits into God’s actions. The Biden Administration is desperately trying to roll back the clock, but it is too late. God is moving His purpose of favor, blessing, and restoration of Israel. He will accomplish every promise He gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Yehovah God is faithful to His word!

​“God is not a man, that He should lie, ​​nor a son of man, that He should repent. ​​Has He said, and will He not do? ​​Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?  ​​Behold, I have received a command to bless; ​​He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.” Numbers 23:19-20

Pray for the next few weeks for God’s choice to be raised up as Prime Minister of Israel. Pray for the real peace of Jerusalem which will be only when the Messiah Yeshua comes. And pray for seasonal rains in the time of restoration.

Israel Good News: Aliyah Rises

7 09 2019

Aliyah 19

ALIYAH RISES BY 30%: Jewish aliya (immigration) to Israel rose by nearly 30% in the first half of 2019 over the same period last year. The sharp increase in newcomers, 16,005 arrivals, has been attributed to Russian speakers from countries facing financial problems, nationalism, and crackdowns on civil liberties. The majority of immigrants came from Russia, where aliyah rose by 72% to 7,884 arrivals this year, and Ukraine, which saw a 9% increase to 3,007 immigrants. (JNN)

“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.” Isaiah 43:6

What a day to be alive, to see the scattered captives of Israel returning by the millions in our lifetime. It is truly a resurrection miracle. A nation that was exiled, a language that was dead, and a people without hope, are now growing, blossoming, prospering in their own land. Hallelujah! Yehovah God is faithful.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain in the time of latter 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

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