Never Means Never

12 11 2019

Fear not

Israel has been hit by over 200 rockets in the last 24 hours (now over 360 in 48 hours) after eliminating a top terror commander in Gaza. We pray that this will not escalate into a major invasion. Gaza continues to burn with violence year after year. The very name “Hamas” in Hebrew means violence. Yet rather than be discouraged, we pray for Israel and confess the immutable purpose of Yehovah God:

For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says Yehovah, who has mercy on you. Isaiah 54:10 NLT

Here is one example of God’s miracle mercy:

Netivot home hit: ‘Miracle – not sure we’d get to shelter’ – Batsheva Haddad’s home suffers direct rocket hit. She and family entered protected space on time and were saved.

Rockets Rain Down on Israel After Killing of Top Jihadist – Overnight, the Israel Air Force (IAF) had taken out Bahaa Abu al-Ata, a high-ranking Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza. Al-Ata was responsible for numerous attacks on Israel in recent months and years. He is also believed to have been planning further larger attacks against Israeli population centers.

 It is Yehovah who provides the sun to light the day and the moon and stars to light the night, and who stirs the sea into roaring waves. His name is Yehovah of Heaven’s  Armies, and this is what he says: “I am as likely to reject my people Israel as I am to abolish the laws of nature!” Jeremiah 31:35-36 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Will the Nile River Run Dry?

Nile River over Luxor, Egypt 10-9-19

Does the Bible prophesy the Nile River will dry up? Among certain unfulfilled prophesies this one about the Nile is quite troubling. How could such a devastating thing even happen? Is it real? The prediction is found in the prophecy of Isaiah, chapter 19.

The waters of the Nile will fail to rise and flood the fields. The riverbed will be parched and dry. The canals of the Nile will dry up, and the streams of Egypt will stink with rotting reeds and rushes. All the greenery along the riverbank and all the crops along the river will dry up and blow away. Isaiah 19:5-7 NLT

Could this really happen? It is as real as today’s headlines.

Egypt’s options dry up as Nile dam talks break down Egypt has been holding talks for years with Ethiopia and Sudan, which have long complained about Cairo’s overwhelming share of the river. The Nile supplies more than 90% of Egypt’s fresh water, although Egyptians have one of the lowest per capita shares of water in the world. The latest breakdown in talks with Ethiopia over its construction of a massive upstream Nile dam has left Egypt with dwindling options as it seeks to protect the main source of fresh water for its large and growing population.

Talks collapsed earlier this month over the construction of the $5 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which is around 70% complete and promises to provide much-needed electricity to Ethiopia’s 100 million people. But Egypt, with a population of around the same size, fears that the process of filling the reservoir behind the dam could slice into its share of the river, with catastrophic consequences. Pro-government media have cast it as a national security threat that could warrant military action. Israel Hayom

We have been looking at Isaiah 19 for awhile now, and it is a severe judgment in verse 12: “what God plans, what Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is going to do to Egypt.” Yet, the chapter does not end there, but with great news. The resulting repentance of Egyptians causes them to cry out to the God of Israel!

In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. In that day there will be an altar to Yehovah in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to Yehovah at its border. It will be a sign and a witness that Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to Yehovah for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them.Yehovah will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know Yehovah and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to Yehovah and will keep it.Yehovah will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to Yehovah, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them. Isaiah 19:18-22 NLT

Wow! Can you believe it? What a wonderful salvation in the end. Finally, there will also be something similar happening in the area of ancient Assyria which is now Syria and the area where the Kurds now live.

In that day Egypt and Assyria will be connected by a highway. The Egyptians and Assyrians will move freely between their lands, and they will both worship God. And Israel will be their ally. The three will be together, and Israel will be a blessing to them. For Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, my special possession!” Isaiah 19:23-25 NLT

Wow again! Fasten your seat belts, the ride may get a little bumpy in the near future. This is a literal prophecy for our day, soon to be fulfilled. Watch and pray.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray and thank Him for rain.

Road Trip! Idaho

16 10 2019

20191013_145647

Michael Masambu and I had a fun road trip through the spectacular mountains of Idaho traveling from Challis to Boise with only one minor wrong turn (one hour). We are now in our third week of ministry in this great part of God’s country.

The Challis ministry at Living Waters Ranch was wonderful with rich worship, fellowship and teaching with other leaders, a gathering of eagles. Now we are staying in the most hospitable lodging in Eagle, Idaho. The Aldous family has been a great blessing hosting us.

Brian Harrison has put together a week-long celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles with multiple speakers and great worship teams. My emphasis on the restoration of Israel has been well received.

Monday I return home for three days and then Doreen and I fly to New Hampshire for two weeks of meetings into November. At the end of November we fly with Patrick Kennedy to 15 days of ministry in Kenya. Wow! What an honor to be used by Yehovah.

Please continue to hold us up in prayer for utterance from above to speak the words of life from Jesus.

I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of Yehovah, do not keep silent, And give Him no rest till He establishes And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:6-7

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Him for the heavy rains falling now!

Idaho Update

9 10 2019

Idaho Feast of Tab Conf

Today is Yom Kippur in Idaho. Jews around the world have been repenting and seeking atonement for their sins. How wonderful is the revelation that Yeshua the Messiah gave His own blood as the Lamb of Yehovah to wipe away our sin once and for all who believe! We cannot atone for our own sins, only trust Yeshua’s blood sacrifice. Hallelujah!

Tonight I have my fourth meeting in Sandpoint, Idaho. It has been great so far. One of my favorite spots is always at the Cocalalla Cowboy Church. Tonight is Sandpoint Christian Center and tomorrow I drive nine hours to Challis, Id. to Living Water Ranch with Christopher and Debbie James for a three-day conference. I will be joining there with Michael Masambu of Kenya, and then we go together to Boise for next week’s Feast of Tabernacles One New Man Conference in Meridian.

Please continue to pray for utterance from above as I declare God’s faithfulness to Israel based on two immutable (unchangeable) things: His character and His Word.

For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set  before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 16:20

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

Prayer for Travel

4 10 2019
Living Waters Ranch

Living Waters Ranch Challis, Idaho

Here is my travel update and request for prayer as I leave today to minister in Idaho, New Hampshire and Kenya. My prayer request is simple:

And for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:19

And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike. Ephesians 6:19 NLT

Notice that I pray as Paul did, not for boldness, but that utterance would be given by God. Anyone can be bold, but we need to hear from God so we speak the right words. God has opened doors for me to speak in seven of the next ten weeks, ending with two weeks in Kenya speaking to 3,000 high school and college age future leaders of Kenya. I have also been scheduled to speak to several dozen pastors in two weekends on the subject of Kenya standing with Israel. Finally, I will speak each Sunday in local churches.

This week is Sandpoint, Idaho, at River of Life Church, Saturday morning and evening. Cocollala Cowboy Church  Sunday morning, and Sandpoint Christian Center Wednesday night. The following weekend is Challis, Idaho at Living Waters Ranch. The third week is in Boise at a week long Feast of Tabernacles One New Man Conference in Meridian led by Brian Harrison (details: 208-899-0888).

Doreen and I will be in New England Oct 25-Nov 5 at Milton, NH the first weekend with Pastor Jim Weedon at Milton Christian Fellowship; and then with Pastor Henry Snyder at River Church in Conway, NH the second Sunday.

Doreen is also going to Kenya with me (along with Patrick Kennedy) for two weeks from Nov 27-Dec 11. Michael Masambu leads the Kenya Purpose, Destiny, Achievement Conference. Michael and I will also be together in Challis and Boise. Praise God for His open doors. Your prayers are gratefully appreciated. Thank you.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for the latter rains to fall this season.

Happy Jewish New Year!

28 09 2019

Dry Bones Jewish new year

The Jewish New Year 5780 starts at sundown Sunday. We do pray for peace and God’s blessings for the new year in Israel and for Jews everywhere. Especially pray for the formation of the new Israeli government. The impasse is formidable.

Dry Bones impasseDry Bones election magic

Only Yehovah God and His Messiah Yeshua can solve the dilemma. We continue to pray that the spirit of Haman be exposed and the evil plot revealed. 

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. 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. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.” Daniel 2:20-22

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

Who Owns the Land of Israel?

24 09 2019

Canaanite4_1

Who owns the Holy Land? Is it the Palestinians? Is it Israel? Is it the United Nations? Is it the Roman Catholic Church? OR, is it Yehovah God?

The earth is Yehovah’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him. For He laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Psalm 24:1-2 NLT

“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since He is Lord of heaven and earth, He doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve His needs—for He has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need. From one man He created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and He determined their boundaries. Acts 17:24-26  NLT

Now that we have made that clear, you can understand the outright blasphemy of the Palestinian leaders’ recent statements. Both President Abbas and his Minister of Culture claim they own the land because: We are Canaanites!” If that is not bad enough, an Arab Minister of Knesset in Israel makes the same claim.

Tibi to Rivlin: We own this land –  “We did not immigrate here, we were born here, we are a native population, we are not guests, we are the owners of this land: says Joint List MK Ahmed Tibi. INN

First, it is a lie that they are a native population. History is clear that they are Arabs who came to the land from Syria, Egypt and other Arab states in relatively recent centuries. The Jews trace there habitation at least 4,000 years.

Second, the Palestinians are proven by DNA to have no ancestry to the Canaanites or even to the Philistines (another bogus claim). They have never claimed Canaanite ancestry until the last few years for political leverage.

Which brings me to my final point. Why did the Canaanites get expelled from the land? Did God remove them from the land unfairly or unrighteously? The Bible states two reasons they lost the land. It was a combination of their complete wickedness and God’s oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (who became Israel). God is quite clear about this point:

Because the entire land has become defiled, I am punishing the people who live there. I will cause the land to vomit them out. Leviticus 18:25 NLT

“After Yehovah your God has done this for you, don’t say in your hearts, ‘Yehovah has given us this land because we are such good people!’ No, it is because of the wickedness of the other nations that He is pushing them out of your way. It is not because you are so good or have such integrity that you are about to occupy their land. Yehovah your God will drive these nations out ahead of you only because of their wickedness, and to fulfill the oath He swore to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Deuteronomy 9:4-5 NLT

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