Let it Rain!

27 11 2020

We have been praying for rain according to Zechariah 10:1 for Israel and our prayers are being answered. Thanks be to Yehovah, the faithful God of Israel, that even with the flooding there are no deaths reported.

“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

Massive Increase in Lightning Strikes Across IsraelHeavy rains bring flooding, in addition to welcome increase in Sea of Galilee water level.

Wettest November since 1994 causes flooding, damage in coastal cities – Storms expected to let up over the weekend.

“Therefore the showers have been withheld, and there has been no latter rain. You have had a harlot’s forehead; you refuse to be ashamed.” Jeremiah 3:3

Blessing or Judgement? – Giving or withholding rain is a sign that God uses to let us know our condition before Him. We may complain about the flooding, but it sure is better than drought. Israel is in restoration, which is why I have faith that the rains are being restored. One specific sign of the last days is the promise that the desert will blossom like a rose. That is happening on a very small scale through irrigation, but the real blessing comes with the restoration of full scale seasonal rains that will cause the seeds in the desert to sprout and grow and produce fruit. Hallelujah!

“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; ​​It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing. ​​The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon. ​​They shall see the glory of Yehovah, the excellency of our God.” Isaiah 35:1-2

Keep praying for seasonal rains in abundance and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Two Responses to Favor in Judgment

17 04 2020

Yehovah love

So what have you learned so far from the pandemic? God is with us, you know. He is here, and He is speaking to us. He always speaks to each of us. You may say that He does not talk to you, but you would be wrong. God speaks, we just aren’t listening or we don’t know how. I will let you in on a little secret. You get better at listening with practice! After you have poured out all your own prayer requests, stay a little longer and listen. Learn to recognize Him. He explains a lot to us when we tune in. It really does take practice, so don’t give up. Here is some pretty clear guidance for how to respond to the judgments of God in the earth.

At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. 

Though the wicked is shown favor, He does not learn righteousness; he deals unjustly in the land of uprightness, and does not perceive the majesty of YEHOVAH.  Isaiah 26:9-10 NASB

Has God favored you with life and provision? Has He blessed you with more than you deserve? It is possible to see and hear God in favor and even in judgment. It is our opportunity to learn righteousness. The wicked have the opposite reaction. They hate God and get angry at Him and continue in their wicked injustice. The wicked ones don’t get it. Instead of being in awe at the majesty of Yehovah, they curse Him and suffer in their self-inflicted pain. On national TV, New York Gov. Cuomo declared that God did not save us, we ourselves did. During this coronavirus pandemic we should pray for a great awakening in America to see and hear the answers provided by our majestic and loving Heavenly Father through His Son, Jesus the Messiah.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Him for the abundant rains in Israel.

Understanding Hamas?

16 04 2019

Hamas

What is Hamas? Hamas is the acronym of al-Harakat al-Muqawwama al-Islamiyya—the name of the Islamic Resistance Movement, a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist terror organization that is legally banned by the United States, Canada, the EU and Israel. CUFI

 

The above definition of Hamas by Christians United For Israel rightly explains that Hamas is an acronym for the terror movement’s Arabic name. Why did they specifically choose to end up with Hamas as their name? The answer is in the Bible. The five letter name has a subtle message to Israelis. Even though it is an acronym in Arabic, it forms a real word in Hebrew. What is the word? It is “violence”. Here are a few examples of “hamas” in the Hebrew text. Each use of “violence” is the Hebrew word “hamas”. Try changing “violence” to “hamas” as you read.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. … And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6:11 & 13

The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3

Yehovah tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. Psalm 11:5

For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. Proverbs 4:17

The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do justice. Proverbs 21:7

Over fifty more verses in the Bible use this Hebrew word and the Hamas terrorists know it well and intended it to intimidate Israel. (Read the list of uses of “violence”.) However, they fail because Yehovah God fights for Israel. When you scan down the list, you see that God will settle accounts with all men who use violence in such a way.

Remember that Yehovah judged the entire planet in Noah’s day. You can be sure that he will judge this present day terror group, and all the terror clones that rule and intimidate with violence.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

In an unprecedented event, hundreds from San Antonio’s Jewish community, joined by Jewish leaders from throughout the US and Israel, celebrated and expressed appreciation for the past four decades of Pastor John and Diana Hagee’s ardent support for the state of Israel, through CUFI, which now has over 5.6 million members.
