Bye Bye Avigdor Liberman

6 06 2019

Liberman2

“We won’t allow Israel to return to how it was under King David” This statement is from Avigdor Liberman, after blowing up the Israeli election process by refusing a compromise to form a conservative government under Prime Minister Netanyahu. (Excellent analysis of his personal vendetta against Netanyahu in this Caroline Glick column.)

My Prediction: Let me go out on a limb here. Bye-bye Liberman. He will not prosper politically. His party won five seats in the April election, and some polls suggest he will win nine in the September election. However, I believe Netanyahu was selected by God to lead Israel and therefore Liberman is fighting against Yehovah God. Let me explain his most egregious violation.

Liberman is strongly secular and he opposed the religious parties on the military draft controversy. However, with the above declaration rejecting King David, he has stepped away from the favor of God. He accused the orthodox of wanting to establish a theocracy, which may or may not be true. In fact, I have my own reservations about the motives of the religious orthodox parties. Yet the issue is above politics or religion.

King David did not rule over a theocracy. It was a monarchy, led by a fallible man, but who was a man after God’s own heart. We also should seek God’s heart.

But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man about whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do. Acts 13:22 NLT

David’s government was not a theocracy. It prospered when he listened to God and it faltered when he did not listen. The point is the amazing liberty that God gave David, a man, to rule as a king, under God. Israel will have no king until the Messiah. But any leader who listens to God’s voice will prosper. King Saul would not listen:

“How foolish!” Samuel exclaimed. “You have not kept the command Yehovah your God gave you. Had you kept it, Yehovah would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom must end, for Yehovah has sought out a man after his own heart. Yehovah has already appointed him to be the leader of his people, because you have not kept Yehovah’s command.” 1 Samuel 13:13-14

I have made clear my opinion about Pres. Trump and PM Netanyahu being chosen by God. This does not speak to their character any more than King David. But as long as they manage to walk in God’s purpose for their nation, they will prosper in their governing. That is why I have faith to pray for them. It is so important that they listen to God, and to godly counsel surrounding them both. 

If you doubt my reasoning, just remember the name on the eternal throne from which Jesus, the King of Kings, will rule. It is not Jesus. It is not Yehovah. It is the name of a man: David. The mystery of intimacy with God is the secret key that every believer should desire. Seek first…the Kingdom and His righteousness.

He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and Yehovah God will give Him the throne of His father David. Luke 1:32

We will never have a better idea than God’s plan. Let us seek His face, His intimacy, so we can walk, and yes govern, the way He chooses for us.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Haman and Global Jihad

28 05 2019
Bullseye

Here is our prayer target for this week.

Israel may have to have another round of elections. There is a major battle in the spiritual realm that requires our sincere and sober intercession in prophetic prayer. Early this year I heard a new emphasis of this clear word from the Lord about Haman in the Book of Esther. I declared a warning about the genocidal spirit of Haman in March of 2016, and several blogs since then. It was immediately apparent that the devious spirit was arrayed against Israel and the U.S. to oppose Donald Trump. It is still true, and also applies to PM Netanyahu of Israel. We must bind the spirit of Haman and pray that the evil plot will be exposed.

The Esther Solution: Jews all over the world celebrate Purim, the great victory over their enemies in the Book of Esther. The basis of their win was simple: self-defense. The King had issued a law allowing the execution of all Jews. Esther’s famous story “for such a time as this” and “if I perish, I perish,” resulted not in reversing the law, but in a new decree allowing the Jews to defend themselves. What a concept!

Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month of Adar, on the thirteenth day, the time came for the king’s command and his decree to be executed. On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them. The Jews gathered together in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hands on those who sought their harm. And no one could withstand them, because fear of them fell upon all people. And all the officials of the provinces, the satraps, the governors, and all those doing the king’s work, helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them. Esther 9:1-3 (You should read this short Book of Esther)

What does this have to do with global jihad?  Europe is one big “gun-free zone.” Citizens are not allowed to defend themselves. Believe it or not, the solution is not simply a 2nd Amendment argument. This Esther principle is the global solution for nations. Israel (as usual) is the classic example. Their correct justification for military action is that they have a national right and a personal right to defend themselves. Their enemies also attack civilian soft targets. Israel is different because they fight back. In the United States, we still have the 2nd Amendment, although it is seriously undermined, but Europe is defenseless.

The goal of Haman in Esther was the death of every Jew. That is the same demonic principality unleashed today. Only now, it includes Christians, and by extension, the Western free world. Are you willing to stand up for Israel today? We are in this together, make no mistake. President Trump is known for “punching back” whenever he is attacked, and is often criticized for his undiplomatic attitude. However, this is a time in history when we need to wake up, stand up, and speak up for God’s purpose.

Here is the warning that Mordecai gave Esther.

“Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14

Pray for courage for our leaders in America and Israel. And keep praying for the peace of Jerusalem and for rain.

Israel Election!

8 04 2019

Israel votes

Please pray for God’s purpose and blessing for Israel’s elections tomorrow (midnight tonight Eastern Daylight time). I still believe Prime Minister Netanyahu is chosen to lead Israel at this time. He has been under accusations at home similar to President Trump in America.

Our intercession has been based on the Book of Esther. Pray that the spirit of Haman (which is the spirit of Amalek) would be bound, and pray that the evil plot would be revealed. I am praying this way for both countries, and both leaders.

For Israel, it is about dividing the land. For the U.S it is about blessing and standing with Israel. President Trump has been the most pro-Israel president in history.

Great news announced yesterday by PM Netanyahu! He declared that he will extend sovereignty over the West Bank (Biblical Judea and Samaria). He is the first Prime Minister in Israel’s modern history to say there will be no Palestinian state between the Jordan River and the Sea. That is really big! It is the end of the “two state” fantasy.

“Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria – with US support” – Netanyahu in special interview: ‘There will be no Palestinian state – I am making sure of it.’ Watch: (The most important part in the video starts at about 4:20.)

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 pray for rain.

You Said It, You Did It.

25 03 2019

Prime Minister Netanyahu made another of his excellent speeches today in the White House with President Trump. The occasion was the Declaration of the US recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights in northern Israel. This one-minute clip highlights the fact that President Trump does what he says he will do. The PM mentions four times that the President said he would do something for Israel and each time he did. Therefore, he is Israel’s best friend. (Click here for the full fourteen-minute video.)

During my recent Florida ministry, I declared everywhere that we should pray for the spirit of Haman (from the Book of Esther) to be bound and the evil plot exposed. Today we see that happening in the news, with the Mueller Report finding no collusion. Also, one of Trump’s worst critics, Michael Avenatti, was arrested for multiple criminal acts. The Golan decision is part of allowing the Jews to defend themselves.

Now we wait for the results of two more reports that will likely be shocking to the Haman plotters.

Trump allies await results of two internal probes  – Trump allies are now awaiting the results of two long-running internal probes that could expose the back story behind the Russia probe’s beginnings — and provide more detail on already-documented misconduct among top FBI and DOJ officials.

  1. DOJ Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz confirmed at a panel discussion last week that his office is continuing to review potential surveillance abuses by the FBI, a review that began last March and that Fox News is told is nearing completion.

  2. Republicans, meanwhile, are increasingly looking for answers from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber, who was appointed a year ago by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review not only surveillance abuses by the FBI and DOJ, but also authorities’ handling of the probe into the Clinton Foundation

The attempted genocide of the Jews has been repeated throughout history, yet Yehovah God has preserved them to this very day.

When Haman saw that Mordecai would not bow down or show him respect, he was filled with rage. He had learned of Mordecai’s nationality, so he decided it was not enough to lay hands on Mordecai alone. Instead, he looked for a way to destroy all the Jews throughout the entire empire of Xerxes. Esther 3:5-6 NLT

We must continue to intercede for our nation and for Israel, where Netanyahu is under similar accusations from the same spirit of Haman. God is moving, but we must keep praying.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

New Israel Elections

29 12 2018

Prophesy To The Land! 6 jpgWhile most of us have been unplugged for the holidays, big news is breaking in Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu has called early elections for April 9. The scheduled time was November 2019 so it is only six months early, but is shaking up Israeli politics. The good news is that the Prime Minister has a big lead in early polls.

Political attacks on the conservative Likud government headed by Netanyahu are strikingly similar to those against President Trump. I have the same answer for both men. They are in place to do the will of Yehovah God regarding His restoration and favor of Israel. If either leader veers away from enacting God’s plan for the Land of Israel, he will surely fall.

The Land, The Land, The Land! It is always about the Land of Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump have been raised up by God to protect the Land of Israel. Ezekiel 22 is about the severe judgment against Israel for defiling the Land. It led to the scattering to all the nations because Yehovah could find no leader to stand up for the Land.

“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30

The judgment certainly was severe (see Romans 11:22). But the story does not end there. God promised the restoration of Israel and the Land, in the end times. We now see that He turned the page after the Holocaust (described in Psalm 102), and pronounced the set time to favor Zion had come!

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

From 70 A.D. to 1948 the Jews never won a war. From 1948 to now, they never lost a war. What changed? God turned the page from judgment to favor and restoration. Hallelujah! So, now He is using two leaders to stand in the gap for the Land of Israel. This is so much bigger than politics. Pray for President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Pray for rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

While You Were Watching

28 09 2018

Iran's atomic sites

Plenty of words are flying around about the US Supreme Court, but while you were watching that “must see TV” something else was happening at the United Nations. Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel gave an amazing speech that you don’t want to miss. Please watch it here, which includes the transcript. He shows a map of Iran’s hidden nuclear storage site. (Also, Hezbollah missile sites near Beirut Airport in Lebanon)

“Thus says Yehovah to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: ​‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; ​​I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. ​​I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, Yehovah, ​​Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.” Isaiah 45:1-3

Please continue to pray for me as I complete my New Hampshire ministry this Sunday morning and Sunday night in Milton, NH.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Netanyahu to Iranian People

5 06 2018

This minute and a half video says it all. Israel’s quarrel with Iran has nothing to do with the people, only the radical religious leaders. The Ayatollah regularly calls for the complete genocide of Israel and the Jews.

Prime Minister Netanyahu touches the perfect tone in this amazing video. We need to pray for the liberation of the people of Iran so they can resume to historic good relationship with Israel.

Within the Iranian backed Gaza terrorists, the call is likewise the genocide of the Jews. Even today, the call is out for more violence against Israeli citizens to commemorate the defeat of the Arabs in the Six Day War. There seems to be no end to the “Days of Rage” for one date or another. In fact, they also have rage on no particular occasion at all, just to give vent to their demonic hatred of the Jews.

In only the last two weeks, over 180 rockets were fired from Gaza at Israeli citizens with the intent to murder. That is 180 attempted murders. Just because they failed does not absolve them of the crime.

How amazing that Yehovah God keeps watching over Israel and protecting them from the satanic intentions of the terrorists. Thank you, Jesus.

​“And it shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, ​​O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. ​​Do not fear, let your hands be strong.” For thus says Yehovah of hosts: “‘​Just as I determined to punish you when your fathers provoked Me to wrath,” ​​Says Yehovah of hosts, “​And I would not relent, ​​so again in these days ​​I am determined to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. ​​Do not fear.” Zechariah 8:13-15

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!
