Yes, Time to Favor Zion

My sojourn in Idaho has been abundantly blessed with renewed confirmation of Yehovah God’s perfect timing. I see it in the anointed ministry all around this month, but mostly every time I look at the favor on Israel.

I have spoken on Psalm 102 with greater clarity each time. The Holy Spirit confirms over and over the graphic description of the the Holocaust in that Psalm. That is why I call it: The Holocaust Psalm. Yet, the message is not one of despair because it leaps to the fruit of six million seeds of martyrs for their faith. Verse thirteen shouts the glorious news that God turns the page to favor, blessings and restoration. I maintain that the full prophetic meaning of this Psalm could only be grasped after the Holocaust.

A people who did not win a war from 70 AD to 1948, have not lost a war from 1948 to the present. Why? FAVOR! The time to favor Zion has come. We are eyewitnesses to the amazing evidence. They got their nation back, their land back, their language back, their capital city back and more! They are the technology start-up nation. They have made wonderful breakthroughs in medicine and agriculture. They have discovered trillions of cubic feet of natural gas offshore and are energy independent. I could go on.

It is my awesome honor to proclaim the mighty works of God in Israel from city to city, from state to state and in other countries. We are truly living in the Biblical time of restoration. Hallelujah! Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus.

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:19-21

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and give thanks for this week’s rains! Also, pray for Canada’s election:

Jerusalem recognition on the table in Canadian federal election – Poll show dead heat as pro-Israel Conservative aims to unseat PM Justin Trudeau. Challenger vows to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital.

God is Faithful

Yeshua Lives! Israel Lives!

The eternal promises of Yehovah God are based entirely on His character of faithfulness. He does not lie, and He keeps His word, even to a thousand generations. I want to look at one promise in Jeremiah that illustrates God’s faithful character. Jeremiah 29 has one of the most quoted verses in the Bible. Yet, it is greatly misunderstood. Christians are quick to jump on verse 11:

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yehovah, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

This text is not a blanket promise that things will always get better for everybody. History and life certainly contradicts that interpretation. So what is the message here that is so encouraging to believers? I see three distinct messages in the context of Jeremiah 29.

  1. First, this is written historically to the specific Jews who were taken away from Jerusalem and Judah in the 70 year-long Babylonian captivity. In verse 11, Jeremiah speaks a literal promise that Yehovah God has not forgotten them. They are to live and thrive in that strange land. Notice this verse:

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to Yehovah for it; for in its peace you will have peace. Jeremiah 29:7

So verse 11 is a literal promise that God will restore them after 70 years.

  1. Secondly, this promise applies as a general principle of God’s covenant faithfulness, but only to those who believe and follow His ways. In that sense, it applies to us today who love Yehovah and walk in His pathway. However, it cannot be taken as a blanket promise for all people. There is still reaping and sowing and accountability. Judah’s physical and spiritual adultery is why they ended up in Babylon. If you want to claim the promise, you also sign on for the accountability part. So remember that there is a future and a hope….in God!

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:12-13

  1. Thirdly, there is a literal application for Israel today! Yes, it applied to historical Judah. Yes, it applies to believers everywhere who call on Him from the heart. They will find Him. But almost like a verse that doesn’t fit, verse 14 speaks of a different historical period that is way in the future.

I will be found by you, says Yehovah, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says Yehovah, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jeremiah 29:14

This does not refer to Egypt or Babylon or any limited captivity in a single nation, but to the future great Diaspora (dispersion). It foretells a time when Israel will have been scattered to all the nations of the world. This has been their condition for nearly 2,000 years since the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. BUT GOD! But, Yehovah does not leave them scattered. He has planned one last great regathering of His chosen ones to the PLACE from which they were scattered. We are now eyewitnesses of this great miracle that proves Yehovah’s covenant faithfulness. He is the promise keeping God!

I wrote in my book, Speak To The Dirt!, that God has no Plan B. The church did not replace Israel, we were adopted by the Father and added to the family. If God broke His promise to Israel then we have no logical basis to trust Him to keep His promises to Christians. Ah, but He has kept His Israel promise. He is restoring them to their land, their language, their scriptures, their God and their Messiah. Therefore we trust His promises to us.

Yay God! We are with you. Count us in. We rejoice in the true peace of Jerusalem. Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Kenya Final Update

14 12 2018

20181203_083855

It is great to be home again after wonderful ministry in Kenya to 2,600 young people at the 18th annual PDA Conference in Kimilili, Kenya near the Uganda border in western Kenya. PDA stand for Purpose-Destiny-Achievement. (Click here for videos.)

I spoke ten times, six at the conference and four in local churches. Future leaders of Kenya and missionaries to the nations were called from the youth there from high school, college and young professional. Many pastors also attended. Although most were committed believers, there were over 100 born again and filled with the Holy Spirit.

My goal of providing seed for the sowers, regarding God’s restoration of Israel and our call to stand with Israel as a blessing to the nations, was exceeded. Doreen and I were particularly blessed to connect and impart our Israel vision to three specific leaders from Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Uganda, who vowed to take the Israel “seed” to their respective nations. Several Kenyan pastors were inspired to visit Israel as soon as possible.

Psalm 102 (which I call the “Holocaust Psalm”), was the core of much of my teaching. Verse 13 was key as the point Yehovah turned the page for Israel from judgement to favor after 1,878 years from 70 AD to 1948. I pointed out that Israel never won a war during that severe period of judgement and scattering among the nations. But since 1948 they have not lost a war because God turned the page to restoration, blessing, regathering, rebuilding, and favor.

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

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:19-21

Thank you for all who prayed for us and supported us for this amazing two weeks in Africa. May Yehovah God’s plan and purpose be fulfilled for each one of the blessed participants. Special thanks and honor to our host, Pastor Michael Masambu.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

High Idaho Desert

Living Waters Ranch

John Fisk and I are in Challis, Idaho at Living Waters Ranch this weekend. My speaking session is Saturday afternoon; prayers appreciated. John and I are sharing amazing one on one time in this spectacular corner of the globe. “A brother assisted by a brother is like a lofty and fortified city.”

Christopher and Debbie James have a wonderful vision for this 2,700 acre ranch as a ministry refuge center for the West coast. Christopher also has a strong heart for Israel. I will be speaking on Ezekiel 36 which declares the end-time restoration, blessing and favor of God on Israel. This the subject of my latest book, Speak to the Dirt! (Click on sidebar picture to order it.) Right now it is available on Kindle, but will be published as a print book soon.

Here is a photo of John at the Tea Cup Cafe, which is in town, but an outreach of the Ranch.

Idaho, John in Challis

Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let Yehovah be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long. Psalm 35:27-28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Israel Hi-Tech

21 03 2017

Mobileye_logo

Israeli hi-tech innovation leads the world. In the midst of the gloom and doom of surrounding wars and terrorism, Israel is booming with prosperity and blessing. Mobileye, an Israeli start-up, is just the latest example. Its autonomous driving technology innovation attracted the interest of Intel, one of the world’s largest companies. Intel paid $15.3 billion, the most ever for an Israeli start-up.

Hi-tech behemoth Intel is really excited about its acquisition of Israel’s autonomous driving company Mobileye, and its new base of operations in the Jewish state.

At a press conference announcing the acquisition, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said: “We think of ourselves as an Israeli company as much as a US company.” 

The chip-maker believes so much in Israeli innovation, that it’s going to make Mobileye’s Jerusalem headquarters the new central base of operations for all of Intel’s autonomous vehicle efforts. Israel Today

This is another sign of the favor of God on Israel. After nearly two millennia under God’s judgments, (see Romans 11), the page has turned. We are now in the period of Israel’s favor and restoration.

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

The worst time ever for the Jews was the Holocaust, followed almost immediately by the “page turning” miracle of Israel national rebirth. The Hebrew language was restored. They got their land back, the people back and even their capital city back, with the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967.

What a day to be alive to witness all this with our own eyes. We rejoice for Israel under the favor of God. Israel is meant to be a blessing to all the other nations. This safety technology is another example.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain this month.
