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.

Fake Refugees

3 09 2018

Dry Bones Fake Refugees

What do you call four generations of perpetual refugee status? They are called: Palestinians. After seventy years, an actual number of five to seven hundred thousand Arabs displaced by the Israeli War of Independence has ballooned to from five to seven million! This is ten times as many “refugees” as actually fled in 1948. Also, some estimate that only 20,000 of the original ones are still alive. Yet, they demand that Israel accept millions into Israel in a so-called “right of return”. This while also demanding that the new Palestinian state will allow zero Jews in any capacity whatsoever to live in their state.

Plus, an equal number or more Jews were driven out of Arab countries at the same time. Yet, Israel joyfully accepted them as full citizens and they have completely integrated into Israeli society.  Arab countries do not grant Palestinians citizenship and normal rights because they serve a political purpose as continual victims on the world stage. What is wrong with this picture? They are fake refugees.

After seventy years a U.S. President finally has the courage to call for an end to the travesty. President Trump calls them fake refugees. The UN has a refugee agency for the rest of the world that routinely resettles refugees in a few months or a year or so. The UN agency for Palestinians is called UNRWA and has perpetuated them in refugee status.

The President made three momentous decisions that have literally changed the face of the peace process.

  1. Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved our Embassy there.
  2. Cancelled $200 million in aid from the Palestinian authority. (Taylor Force Act)
  3. Stopped our $300 million annual contribution to UNRWA.

Some are reporting that President Trump will spell out his peace plan at his UN speech this month. We need to pray fervently that he will follow the voice of Yehovah, who is the ultimate defender of Israel and the #1 Zionist.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

God Will Bless the U.S. x3

8 08 2018

 

flags2

  1. Cast your bread
  2. Yet 7,000
  3. Trump/Israel

Some things are so obvious, so simple, that most people can’t see it right in front of their eyes. Here are three foundational reasons that Yehovah God will bless America. Many naysayers see terrible judgement coming for the United States. They are wrong. We have been talking about sheep and goat nations and we are choosing the righteous path of a sheep nation. I know we are not righteous, but we are on the right path. Here’s why.

  • Cast your bread – God is faithful to reward the sending forth of the Gospel to the four corners of the earth from this nation. There has never been a country or a people who have sent “the bread of life” out to nations (the waters) as the U.S. has. It is impossible to calculate the money, the missionaries, the equipment, the medicine and doctors that have been cast on the waters. They have sown the love of Yehovah even at the cost of their lives.

Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1

  • Yet 7,000 – We underestimate the power of God in the remnant of believers who have stayed faithful to Yeshua even in the overwhelming evil darkness around us. Yehovah is never concerned about numbers, but faithfulness to Him. If you have one room filled with darkness and the next with just one candle, what happens when you open the door between the rooms? Does the darkness flood in and block out the candle? No, just the opposite, the light floods the room that was dark. It only takes one person of light to challenge the darkness. Yehovah will always use those who are true to Him, and He knows who they are.

“Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” 1 Kings 19:18

  • Trump/Israel – The third reason that God will bless the United States is for our standing with Israel. We have a strong leader as President who is determined to help support, defend, and bless the nation and the people and the holy land of Israel.

    “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you;and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

“Certainly Yehovah does not forsake his people; he does not abandon the nation that belongs to him. Psalm 94: 14-15 NET

“Yehovah loves justice, and does not forsake His saints; they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever.” Psalm 37:28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Prayer Bullseye

1 06 2018

BullseyeHere is your intercession target for the next few days. There is a possible prophetic connection to the date of June 6, 2018. The Bible rarely uses dates down to the month and day, but this date has a prominent mention in the Torah, specifically Esther 8:9. What is the connection to this week?

So the king’s scribes were called at that time, in the third month, which is the month of Sivan, on the twenty-third dayand it was written, according to all that Mordecai commanded, to the Jews, the satraps, the governors, and the princes of the provinces from India to Ethiopia, one hundred and twenty-seven provinces in all, to every province in its own script, to every people in their own language, and to the Jews in their own script and language.Esther 8:9

That reckoning is according to the Jewish calendar which used today indicates June 6 this year. Now, the story of the exposure of Haman’s evil plot for genocide of the Jews the entire Persian Empire, is clear in the Book of Esther. We are talking about the date of the proclamation that would lead to the deliverance of the Jews in their day. The subsequent victory was achieved on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, some eight and a half months later. (See verse 12)

America and to some degree Israel, are both embroiled in rather unprecedented attempts to attack, delegitimize, and overthrow the elected administrations. I have been writing about this for months here and here.

My prayer is that the lies and secret plots will be exposed. June 6 could be a pivotal date for this turnaround. Since I started interceding, it was announced that the Inspector General’s report on the Clinton FBI investigation could be released June 6. Therefore, I call for all who bear witness by the Holy Spirit in your own heart to join me this week in sober prophetic intercession. Who knows, perhaps we have been called, as Esther, for this very hour?

A final thought: The victory of Mordecai and Esther’s Jews was assured by the king’s degree that they were allowed to defend themselves. After many months of merciless accusations from “anonymous sources,” repeated ad nauseam by the feckless media, I pray that our nation’s leaders will be allowed to defend themselves in the court of truth. Yehovah God is the King and only His truth will stand the test. Selah.

The Jews had light and gladness, joy and honor. And in every province and city, wherever the king’s command and decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a holiday. Then many of the people of the land became Jews, because fear of the Jews fell upon them. Esther 8:16-17

Pray for President Trump and for Prime Minister Netanyahu. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for rain. (It is raining this weekend again in Israel.)

President Trump as Mordecai

13 04 2018
Mordecai Pieter_Pietersz._Lastman_-_The_Triumph_of_Mordechai

The Triumph of Mordecai by Pieter Lastman, 1624.

Several comparisons apply to this President, with Cyrus of Persia being the clearest. (See Isaiah 45) However, I can’t stop  meditating on the striking similarities between Trump and Mordecai the Jew, in the Book of Esther. Mordecai’s mortal enemy was Haman, the Agagite (more on Agag and the spirit of Amalek). Haman deviously plotted to kill Mordecai and all the Jews of the Persian Empire.

Haman even built a gallows 75 feet high to hang Mordecai. But in the end, the plot was reversed a hundred and eighty degrees through the intervention of Esther (thus the title of the book). The turnaround was so complete that Haman was hung on his own gallows and the King decreed that the Jews could rise up and defend themselves. The application to Israel today is unmistakable.

So let’s get to my point regarding President Trump. He is likewise the subject of a devious plot to destroy him. But I see a complete reversal about to unfold that will be nothing short of miraculous. The truth will come out that there was no Trump/Russia collusion, and the hidden plot will be revealed, exposing real Russia collusion. Also, it will lead to the destruction of the plotters.

Therefore, we must pray and intercede even more for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail. Mordecai’s word to Queen Esther applies to us. We called as prophetic intercessors for this very hour.

 “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

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory – Here is a summary:

At the end of the Book of Esther, the world gets turned upside down (or, right-side up): the bad guy who seemed to be on the verge of a horrible victory gets hanged, the good guy takes his place in the king’s court, and the party of people about to commit a massacre become massacred themselves. Everything runs in reverse, overturning all expectations.

As for the gallows itself, well, it’s really big (75 feet)—outlandishly and pointlessly so. It demonstrates the egotism and wicked madness of Haman to the world (even though building it was technically his wife’s idea). He constructs the gallows as a horrible, over-the-top way of pursuing an unjust personal vendetta—killing Mordecai—but it backfires and ends up being used to kill the person who built it. The irony—the ancient irony! https://www.shmoop.com/esther/gallows-symbol.html

We know we are near a conclusion of the Russian collusion story. The question is which way it will go. Look for major surprises opposite from what the anti-Trumpers are expecting. Of course, in the end only Yehovah God knows, so we pray for His mercy and His purpose to be accomplished, for us and for Israel. As long as our president continues to stand with Israel, our nation will be blessed.

As I finish this post, the limited strike on Syrian chemical assets has been announced. The fact that one facility was in Damascus reminds of the Isaiah 17 prophecy of its destruction. This was not it tonight, but we are in the prophetic timing where it could happen very soon. Pray and watch for God’s plan.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Trump and Pence Hung in Effigy

29 01 2018
Fake lynching

Palestinian concept of “dignity” – give us free money or else.

This was the reaction in Bethlehem Saturday in response to President Trump cutting funding to the Palestinian Authority. Such mob insanity reveals the bankruptcy of the failed “peace” process. It only progresses with concessions to their demands. It is about time we stopped the foolish policy of appeasement. It didn’t work for British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with Hitler. It never works. Thank you President Trump for following Winston Churchill’s example. The true demonic spirit behind the terrorists is always exposed.

It appears to me that we are witnessing the “Haman Principle” from the Book of Esther.

So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided… Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, “Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews. Esther 7:10 & 8:7

We can also see this principle at work in the U.S. It appears that a major secret plot against President Trump is about to be exposed. My prayer is for the truth to stand against every lie of the devil.

But to the Son He says: 
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” Hebrews 1:8

Pray and give thanks for the rain in Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

US Embassy: Recognition of Reality – X4

6 12 2017

Old city street 7-17

Praise God for President Trump keeping his promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people. Here are my four prophetic observations that you won’t see in the secular news.

  1. It’s not about Israel, it’s about the United States. Although Israel is rejoicing with today’s Presidential declaration, the real effect is God blessing the US because we are blessing Israel according to Genesis 12:3. We are recognizing the reality on the ground that Jerusalem has been Israel’s modern capital for 70 years , and in the Bible  for over 3,000 years, since King David’s original declaration.
  2. It’s not about Trump, it’s about God. I honor our President for keeping his word from the campaign. Our three previous presidents broke their promise to move the Embassy. But the real credit belongs to God who moved on President Trumps heart, who is simply obeying and carrying out the will of the God of Israel. Derek Prince, one of my mentors, used to say: When you and the Holy Spirit arrive at the same place, at the same time; it makes you look good.” The same applies to Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp”. I believe God is draining the corrupt and immoral swamp of modern American culture way beyond politics in DC. It is God’s doing and the fact that Trump gives voice to God’s purpose actually does make Trump look good, but it is happening because it is God’s timing for restoration.
  3. It does not kill the “peace process” which was already dead. The Arabs and Muslims have been opposing peace for 100 years, blocking every attempt. The most recent major push was the 1993 Oslo accords which have been a joke. How is that working out for you? It only brought suicide bombings and riots with Israel losing land in every “land for peace,” deal, that never brought peace. After 24 years it is time to pronounce that process dead. It is futile to impose the two-state concept for many practical reasons, but the final word is God’s. He has given the land to Israel; and all the nations of the world and all the demons of hell will not cancel out Yehovah’s eternal plan.
  4. Yehovah is raining on the “Days of Rage”. All the usual suspects are lining up to oppose the move with threats and a call for three days of rage. I had to laugh when a Fox News report a few minutes ago suggested that it is going to be cold and  rainy the next three days in Israel, which may reduce the demonstrations. Ha! Pray for rain!
O Yehovah, my strength and my fortress, ​my refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.” Will a man make gods for himself, which are not gods? “Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; And they shall know that My name is Yehovah. Jeremiah 16:19-21
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!
