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.

Israel’s New Government

11 05 2015

Dry Bones ministers

View inside Israel by cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen.

In order to get a solid government in place, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu needs to bribe support from various political parties! And the bribes he’s forced to offer is “Ministries”. Leaders of his potential partners, and members of his own Likud party are demanding that he appoint them to be a “Minister” in the new gov’t. So the list of government ministries is blowing up out of proportion. And each “Minister” gets a car and driver and an office and a budget , and, and… But hey, it’s the Israeli system!
BTW, the modern Hebrew word for a government Minister is the old Hebrew word for a Prince.

With less than 2 hours to spare, Netanyahu secures a coalition PM informs president he’s clinched a 61-seat government after 11th-hour talks with Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett, expresses hope for an expanded coalition by next week.

Israel now has a new government with a narrow majority. We need to pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu to listen to wisdom from above to lead Israel forward in blessing and security. Here is a very accurate Biblical standard for our prayers.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his worksare done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:13-18

Rise of Arab Army!

28 03 2015

Acceleration: While you were watching basketball, the Middle East has turned a new dark corner. Saudi Arabia has attacked Yemeni rebels and now Egypt is joining along with Jordan. This might be a good thing if it was just about Yemen, but the next turn could be deadly for Israel. The armies that are massing will be getting good practice that could turn against Israel. Look at this headline from Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.

Nasrallah: Israel Should be Targeted, Not Yemen Hezbollah leader blasts Saudi Arabia for launching airstrikes against Houthi rebels, saying it should lead a campaign against Israel. Speaking in a televised speech, Nasrallah said the military campaign should be directed at Israel, not Yemen, adding that if the warplanes were directed towards Israel, Hezbollah would join in.

This could be the trigger that leads to the end of the Psalm 83 War. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is now openly talking about getting nukes because of Obama concessions to Iran.

The Israeli elections concluded with a stunning victory for PM Benjamin Netanyahu. The last polls had him behind by four or five seats and he won by six, a swing of 10 seats! This was despite (or perhaps because of) President Obama’s attempt to influence the vote toward the liberal Herzog. Even the New York Times reported the growing acrimony toward not only the PM, but Israel itself.

White House Antagonism Toward Netanyahu Grows The White House is stepping up its antagonism toward Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu despite his victory in this week’s elections, signaling that it is in no rush to repair a historic rift between the United States and Israel.

Obama-Netanyahu Hostility is ‘Unprecedented’ in History Historian reveals the key clashes between US presidents and Israeli prime ministers, and why none have been as bad as the ‘new low.’

In just two weeks, major shifts have occurred that may accelerate the timing of prophetic fulfillment regarding God’s promises of Israel’s restoration and favor.

The Remnant of Israel Saved “At the same time,” says Yehovah, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.” Thus says Yehovah: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness—Israel, when I went to give him rest.” ​Yehovah has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you. Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria; The planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food. For there shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Ephraim, Arise, and let us go up to Zion, To Yehovah our God.’ ” Jeremiah 31:1-6

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 Election Crunch Time

16 03 2015

Israel election 2015Today is a mega prayer day for Israel. Tomorrow, Israel chooses its next government. The choice has never been clearer. Netanyahu’s conservative camp will hold onto the land. The liberal camp of Herzog will divide Israel to establish a Palestinian Muslim state which will immediately be overtaken by terrorists. If you are a watchman on the wall; or if you just like the view from the top of the wall, Pray! Pray today! Pray NOW!

I don’t mean hope. I mean pray that the God of Israel will act to defend her. Pray with the prophetic confidence of agreement with His covenant. Here is the scriptural foundation for our prayer of faith.

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. Daniel 2:21 NKJV

This means God will choose whom He wants to lead Israel. I am praying that the Holy Spirit will touch the hearts of the Israeli voters and move them toward His choice.

My faith is not in the people, but the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. Psalm 121:4 NLT

Israel Election for New Government on March 17, 2015

2 12 2014

img550204Flash News Update!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired part of his ruling coalition today. This will lead to new elections on March 17. At this early moment it appears that the conservatives will benefit most as the leftist parties look to lose Knesset seats. Netanyahu has had strong resistance to his platform from the left leaning members of his own coalition. Livni and Lapid were fired for undermining the Prime Minister from within.

Here are a few links to this fast breaking story, followed by my observations.

Elections Likely

Bibi Accuses Lapid, Livni of Leading a ‘Putsch’; Calls Elections

Netanyahu Fails to Save Coalition, Early Elections Expected Opposition parties have already submitted a motion for the dissolution of the Knesset, and party officials say Netanyahu’s Likud faction will support them, thereby accelerating the process of early elections, which would presumably be held by mid-March (17th) of next year.

Current polls suggest that Netanyahu and his Likud will handily win the election, and that the right-wing overall will benefit, while leading centrist and left-wing parties will almost all lose mandates.

While the prospects for Bibi Netanyahu continuing as Prime Minister look good, it is not without possible pitfalls. Put simply, Bibi represents Biblical Zionism and the leftists represent the humanist compromise for peace at any cost. They will keep trading land for peace until Israel would be destroyed “piece by peace.” In the end it will be the promise of Yehovah God that will determine the future for Israel.

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud… so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55: 10-11

“Yehovah has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause.” Isaiah 34:8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and begin now praying for the new elections.
