The Greening of Israel

Why do we pray for rain for Israel? Israel must become green. We pray according to God’s restoration purpose prophesied by prophets of old. If you want your prayers answered, pray what God has already said He will do. 

“Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance—all who seek Yehovah! Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined. Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.” Yehovah will comfort Israel again and have pity on her ruins. Her desert will blossom like Edenher barren wilderness like the garden of Yehovah. Joy and gladness will be found there. Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air. Isaiah 51:1-3 NLT

THE GARDEN OF YEHOVAH – We are now living in the season of the supernatural restoration of Israel, promised by Yehovah God of Israel, through many prophets over 4,000 years! God turned the page in 1948, following the prophesied judgement of the 1,800+ years of scattering to the countries of the world,  and we now see favor and blessing for His Chosen ones.

I will be to Israel like a refreshing dew from heaven. Israel will blossom like the lily; it will send roots deep into the soil like the cedars in Lebanon. Its branches will spread out like beautiful olive trees, as fragrant as the cedars of Lebanon. My people will again live under my shade. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon. Hosea 14:5-7 NLT

After years of drought the sea of Galilee is beginning to fill up again. It has risen three and a half feet already. Rainfall is “an unusually high amount for this point in the season.” The lake is 13 miles long and 8.1 miles wide covering 64.4 square miles. That’s a lot of rain! Thank you Jesus.

Ask Yehovah for rain in the time of the latter rain. Yehovah  will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.  Zechariah 10:1

Finally, we pray for the restoration of the seasonal rains because God says to, when we are “in the time of latter rain.” The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in this generation on “all flesh” means it is time for Israel’s greening! The best part is Israel is included in His Holy Spirit rain.

For I will gather you up from all the nations and bring you home again to your land.“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. “And you will live in Israel, the land I gave your ancestors long ago. You will be my people, and I will be your God. … And when I bring you back, people will say, ‘This former wasteland is now like the Garden of Eden! Ezekiel 36:24-28, 35 NLT

Thank God for the rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

2020 Zion’s Favor

8 01 2020

FB_IMG_1571508973945

This new year will see continued restoration of God’s favor toward Israel. The graph of His faithful blessings is still moving steadily upward. There are setbacks along the way, but Yehovah turns them around in the fulfilling of His Plan. The recent flare-up with Iran only confirms what I have been saying for several years. Iran will be diminished in this season. Iran only rises to join the final coalition for the final battle of Gog & Magog: foretold in Ezekiel 38. The primary countries named are Turkey, Iran, Sudan and Libya . (The towns listed are in Turkey and the ancient country names are now Iran/ Persia, Ethiopia/Sudan and Libya). This can only emerge after a time of peace when Israel takes down all of their present walls. Read the conditions listed for yourself.

Therefore, Doreen and I continue to travel to support Israel as we “stay in our lane” proclaiming the restoration of Israel: the land, the people, the Hebrew language, their culture and salvation through the Messiah Yeshua and the restoration of the covenant name of our Father God: YEHOVAH!

Our travel was extensive this year with 2 1/2 weeks in Florida in March and a stop in Chareston, SC on the way home. Patrick Kennedy and I went to Lt. Gov. Dan Forest’s men’s retreat at the Billy Graham Cove in April and also shared in the Shalom Peniel Passover at the Raleigh Hilton. June was our wonderful Israel tour with 30 folks forever changed. In July, Doreen and I were blessed to attend the Christians United for Israel Summit with John Hagee in Washington, DC. August found us at Liberty University for the American Renewal Project promoting Christian pastor and church involvement in the election process. It is time Christians stand up and speak up and VOTE for righteousness in government. Idaho was the location of 2 1/2 weeks of ministry in October in Sandpoint, Challis and Boise. Two weeks ministering in New Hampshire followed throuugh Nov 5. We then left Nov. 27 for Kenya ministry, returning on Dec 11. The PDA youth conference saw over 1,500 saved and over 3,000 baptized in the Holy Spirit. I also spoke  to 100 pastors in Nairobi and had several life-changing impartations of my Israel message to key pastors from Zimbabwe and India. Whew! What a wonderful year. Thank you Jesus! (This excerpt is from our EV Intercessors 2019 Report.)

We have deep appreciation and gratitude for your love and support. As always, if the Lord speaks to you to send financial gifts, you can give by credit card or PayPal on the Donate Button or send mail to PO Box 1601, Wake Forest, NC 27588.

Also, please note that our Oct 20-30 Elisha Vision Speak to the Dirt Israel Tour is now accepting deposits of $300.00 for 14 remaining spots. You can use the same Donate Button and mention the Tour. First come, first served.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Him for the present rains!

2020 Vision in Prophecy

4 01 2020

Dry Bones 2020

This cartoon with the sound of “ticking” has prophetic meaning. This is not just another year or decade. Major prophetic pieces are fitting into the puzzle. Hidden plots in the past are now being revealed. Israel is at the center of the world in many respects. The geo-politcal shaking of nations is being overtaken by cosmic contests of war in the heavenlies.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

Elisha Vision Ministries is based on the prayer of Elisha for his servant’s eyes to be opened to see in the spiritual dimension. Elisha’s great declaration was “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 2 Kings 6:16 We see the end of days, and we win in Jesus. Pray for 2020 spiritual vision.

But in the meantime, we are at war in the spiritual plane. Don’t look down at the flesh, look up to the Messiah and Yehovah, the God of angel armies. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

Yet I see real victory in 2020. We plan to take two groups to Israel. I see victory for God’s purpose in the elections in both Israel and America. I see a greater harvest of souls for the Kingdom and greater activation of believers to function with authority in a broken world. I see revival in Africa sparked by a greater move of God in Kenya and beyond. I see believers moving into greater faith, not just for healing, but faith to live in health. We are closer than ever to the glorious appearing of the Messiah Yeshua! Here is a word for 2020. Speak, exhort and rebuke with authority.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you. Titus 2:11-15

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for seasonal rain in the Land! May your new year be blessed and effective for the Kingdom of God.

Kenya Loves Israel

Last year’s PDA Conference: Purpose Destiny Achievement

Doreen and I along with our friend, Patrick Kennedy, are flying out to Kenya in a few hours. It will be my honor to speak for three hours to 100 pastors in Nairobi this Friday. Later in the next week I am speaking to another 100 pastors in Bungoma Town. Both pastors’ meetings are on the subject of Kenya standing with Israel.

Speaking in a church each Sunday is also a blessing. Last year the Lord Jesus really joined us in the Holy Spirit with two church families. The main youth conference has 3,400 youth and young adults registered. Please pray for us that the Gospel of the Kingdom of God will touch many. Also, please pray that the flooding rains in Kenya would stop for the next two weeks during the conference. More than 65 died in floods and landslides last weekend.

My good friend Michael Masambu tells me that ancient Cush included part of Kenya, and that there are Cushites still living in northern Kenya. The nation is 80% Christian and has a record of standing with Israel at key times. Pray for Kenya!

“And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; ​for the Gentiles shall seek Him, ​and His resting place shall be glorious.” It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Assyria and Egypt, from Pathros and Cush,From Elam and Shinar, from Hamath and the islands of the sea. He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Isaiah 11:10-12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain in Israel.

Hand of God Defeats Missiles

23 11 2019
Syria missile Damascus_Missile-Strike

This is a true report of the recent Israeli cruise missile counter attack on Iranian forces near Damascus, Syria as missiles were fired at Israel.

Hand of God Returns Syrian Missiles to Fall Upon the Enemies of Israel – On Wednesday night, the Syrian army launched missiles at Israel but a video released on Twitter shows that at least one missile changed course after launch, striking inside Syria.

The story goes on to explain that Israel shot them down with “Delilah” cruise missiles with radar-jamming technology. Some of the successful defense was credited to Israeli technology, but part could not be explained. It reminds me of the Gaza rocket that hit a Gaza building instead of the Israeli target two weeks ago. Amnesty International blamed Israel but was contradicted by an eye witness Fox News reporter across the street from the Gaza building. (See Israel Fake News).

It should be noted that this is not the first time the hand of God has sent missiles back to fall upon the enemies of Israel. In 2016, Russia sent the advanced S-300 anti-air system to Iran. The move caused great concern in Israel but Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, a prominent spiritual leader, reassured his followers that the missiles were not a threat.The rabbi predicted,“These missiles, which can shoot down practically any plane, will get a virus in their computers, and go crazy. They will blow up inside their bunkers. The launcher will blow up underneath them.” A few weeks later, a YouTube video showed precisely what the rabbi had prophesied: a missile shot out of an S-300 launcher but its rocket failed to ignite. The missile dropped back onto its launcher, exploding inside the bunker.Breaking Israel News

They have prepared a net for my steps;
My soul is bowed down;
They have dug a pit before me;
Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah  Psalm 57:6

Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken. Psalm 37:15

This concept is consistent throughout the Bible. It is the promise of Yehovah God to protect His people as in Psalm 91. That is why I steadfastly pray against the spirit of Haman (Book of Esther). As his evil plot was exposed and all those conspiring were hung on the gallows Haman had built for Mordecai, so too today I pray that those who conspire against God, would fall into their own trap.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray with faith! And pray for rain in season.

Israel Defense Minister’s Prayer

19 11 2019

Watch: Defense Minister’s prayer at first General Staff meeting – Naftali Bennett recites prayer for the State of Israel at first General Staff meeting since becoming Defense Minister.

What a great way to start your term in office! Naftali Bennett, Israel’s new Defense Minister started his first General Staff meeting with prayer. It inspires me to pray for Israel. If we pray for Israel’s defense from their enemies, Yehovah God will protect us from our enemies. It is the eternal “quid quo pro” of Scripture.

I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

The name “Naftali” means “my wrestling” or “one who struggles or fights.” He was Jacob’s fifth son. It seems appropriate for the Defense Minister of Israel.

Then Rachel said, “With great wrestlings I have wrestled with my sister, and indeed I have prevailed.” So she called his name Naphtali.Genesis 30:8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for an abundant rainy season.

Israel Fake News

15 11 2019

Dry Bones misfire D19B14_1

The problem of fake news is not just in America. Israel regularly faces the same issue. Here is just the most recent example.

Fox News reporter in Gaza: Amnesty International lied – Reporter rebuts Amnesty claim Israel hit Gaza building, explaining, “A rocket misfired from Gaza. I was across the street when it happened.” Amnesty International lied yesterday, Tuesday, when it accused Israel of violating international law for bombing the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights building in Gaza, said Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst. 

Amnesty International Called Out for Falsely Accusing Israel of Attacking Gaza Building — Which Was Actually Hit by Misfired Palestinian RocketAmnesty quickly issued a tweet saying, “We strongly condemn attack on the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights whose office in Gaza was struck by an Israeli missile earlier this morning. Strikes targeting civilian buildings is a violation of international law.” 

The irony and hypocrisy of this charge is that Israel always strikes military targets in response to terror attacks while the terrorists target civilians. That is the whole point of terror, to intimidate the civilian population. Don’t be deceived by “media reports,” find out the truth by double-checking the several sources of any story. Amnesty International is notorious for its left-leaning anti-Israel stance.

Pray for truth to come out. I end with my favorite revelation from 2 Thessalonians:

He (Satan) will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10–12 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for seasonal rains.
