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.

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.

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.)
