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!

 

 





United Nations

18 09 2017

This week is the UN General Assembly. You may like this video warning about the UN’s bias against Israel. It was recorded by a young Israeli from a so-called “settlement” in the West Bank, known as Judea and Samaria in the Bible. Pray for God’s purpose of restoration for Israel.

President Trump met with PM Netanyahu today (Monday) and will speak to the General Assembly tomorrow morning. Netanyahu will speak tomorrow afternoon. Pray that they will be on the same page and speak what Yehovah God wants them to say.

This is a very prophetically pregnant week with the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh haShana beginning Wednesday night/Thursday.  This is the first of the Fall feasts, followed by Yom Kippur and Tabernacles. Thursday also happens to be the United Nations Day of Peace and Safety. I am not making this up.

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yehovah and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.” Psalm 2:1-6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Netanyahu at White House Updated

14 02 2017

netanyahu-in-dc-with-trump

Major news this week…President Trump hosts Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House. He arrived a few hours ago and is meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson among other dignitaries today and tonight. Tomorrow he will meet with President Trump. Here are some prayer points. They are followed by my comments on Thursday after the press conference.

  1. Praise God for a new attitude from our government toward Israel. This was clear in the warm tone of the joint press conference.
  2. Give thanks for godly counsel surrounding both men. We continue to pray for this.
  3. Appreciation that Israel’s Chief Rabbi blessed Netanyahu before he left. This is critical for Israeli unity and for putting God first.
  4. Pray for a clear announcement to move our Embassy to Jerusalem, despite rumorsThis was mentioned as an issue “under consideration with caution.”
  5. Pray for a strong statement in favor of settlement/annexation. This was an issue to be discussed further. But the biggest headline of the meeting was President Trump’s public openness to a “one-state” option in addition to the “two-state” that has prevailed for 70 years. That was a major new path to peace. The knee-jerk  rejection of annexation (one-state), is always based on the widely accepted (but incorrect) idea that Arabs would soon outnumber Israelis. The errant bias believes: a. Incorrect exaggerated Palestinian census numbers, b. Wrong assumptions about comparative birth rates, and c. failure to account for continued aliyah (immigration) of millions of Jews still to come home.
  6. Pray for agreement between the two men to reject the Iran boondoggle. This was clearly stated by both leaders.
  7. Pray for a warm personal connection between the two. This was also clearly evident.
“Let’s see if your idols can save you when you cry to them for help. Why, a puff of wind can knock them down! If you just breathe on them, they fall over! But whoever trusts in me will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.” God says, “Rebuild the road! Clear away the rocks and stones so my people can return from captivity.” Isaiah 57:13-14 NLT

And as always, pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Intentional Betrayal

27 12 2016

obama-betrayalTis the season…of joy and celebration, and I sincerely bless all who honor the birth of the Messiah and all who observe Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights and Re-dedication of the Temple.

HOWEVER, while we were focused on the holy days of God, a great betrayal was undertaken against Israel by our President in the name of the United States. Personally, I disavow any part of the decision to stab Israel in the back. Last Friday the UN passed a Security Counsel resolution condemning Israel and setting in motion a dark new era of anti-Semitism around the world. Here is my Facebook post from Friday.

The United States has abstained in the UN anti-Israel vote today. Therefore it has passed; and I am concerned that God will abstain from protecting the United States from terrorist attacks over Christmas. Pray for mercy!

The key words in this story are abstain, abandon and betrayal. Here is the response from Prime Minister Netanyahu:

Prime Minister’s Office –Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolution at the UN and will not abide by its terms. At a time when the security Council does nothing to stop the slaughter of half a million people in Syria, it disgracefully gangs up on the one true democracy in the Middle East, Israel, and calls the Western Wall “occupied territory.” The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes. Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.

Here are a few more links for further information on this story:

Netanyahu Speaks at UN Thursday

20 09 2016

 

Great-Quotes-056Netanyahu: I’ll speak truth to power at United Nations: Prime Minister promises UN will hear Israeli side of the story as he departs for US ahead of meeting with President Obama. 

“I will then address the United Nations General Assembly. I will present Israel’s case, Israel’s truth, Israel’s justice and also Israel’s heroism – the heroism of our soldiers, our police officers and our citizens, who are waging an uncompromising struggle against brutal terrorism.”

Israeli Prime Minister will thank President Obama for the new 10-year agreement for military aid when they meet on the sidelines of the UN on Wednesday. It will likely be the last face-to-face meeting in office. Their relationship has not been good. Israel believes either candidate replacing President Obama will be am improvement, although Clinton is viewed as simply a third Obama term. Trump has declared total support for Israel and says he will not impose solutions on Israel. That in itself would be a great advance in mutual trust for both countries.

88 senators urge Obama to uphold veto on ‘one-sided’ UN resolutions: “Even well-intentioned initiatives at the United Nations risk locking the parties into positions that will make it more difficult to return to the negotiating table and make the compromises necessary for peace,” the senators wrote adding that the US “must continue to insist that neither we nor any other outsider substitute for the parties to the conflict.” … The letter came amid concerns and reports that Obama would consider letting the Security Council vote in a resolution deemed unfavorable to Israel, without using the US veto, at some point before he leaves office in January.

Pressure is building from Palestinians and anti-Israel voices in many countries, Muslim and non-Muslim. Even UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has joined the chorus: Ban Ki-moon says one-state solution ‘would spell doom’

It is critical for Israel that President Obama not abandon Israel for the sake of his personal legacy. Every President thinks they will be the “savior” of the Middle East by finally bringing peace. But the prideful temptation always leads to sacrificing Israel on the peace altar. We must pray and stand against this potential for the remaining months of the Obama Administration.

It is also critical for the US that we not double-cross Israel. We must bless Israel for their sake and for our own sake. The higher truth than any political or personal agenda is the will and purpose of God. He has declared His choice and favor and we cannot reverse it!

I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you. Genesis 12:3 NLT
