ISRAEL-PREPARE FOR REVIVAL!
I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. Ezekiel 36:27
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!
Israel is preparing for Revival! Since I was born again in Israel over 23 years ago, the major prayer in my spirit has been: Adonai pour out REVIVAL in this Land after 2000 years of drought! Wash us with clean water. Yes you have brought us to the Land but NOW it’s time to also return us to the Elohim of the Land!
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:24-26
I am a great example of the fulfillment of the above promise as I was saved in the Land after making Alyah (returning to Zion!) from Chile. I went through every one of the steps described above when Yeshua started to talk to me at the waters of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee!). (See my Testimony book YES in Kad-Esh MAP shop www.kad-esh.org)
HIS PERFECT WILL!
YHVH says 10 times “I will” in Ezekiel 36:23-30! And when He promises, He keeps His word even if it takes time! So we are always on sure ground when we insistently pray for the Restoration of Israel and for Revival and Salvation! In fact Israel is the only nation in the world that is promised National Salvation! (Romans 11:25)
We know that these prayers for Israel’s Revival and ultimate Restoration shall be answered! But why do we need to pray? After all Yah (God) will do what He promised, what does He need us for? He has appointed the Body of Messiah world- wide to be a partner with Him and to fulfill the mandate of Adam:
RULE OVER THE EARTH
RULING WITH HIM!
Then Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26
Adam lost the dominion over the earth to satan because they listened to the snake, broke His Commandment and fell from grace. Through Messiah Yeshua- the Last Adam we received the authority back!
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
The Last Adam (Yeshua Messiah) will rule and reign over the earth, He has to return to establish His Throne in Jerusalem for 1000 years. That is called “The Millennial Reign” We are called to rule and reign with Him (those who have been faithful to Him, Revelation 20:6!), so we must PREPARE Israel for His return! Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and is forever the Headquarters of the Kingdom of Elohim on earth!
“At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of YHVH, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of YHVH, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts. Jeremiah 3:17
Of course YHVH can fulfill all of His word by Himself, but from the time of Creation He has bound Himself to work through MAN (includes Woman as Adam was both male and female!)
So Elohim created man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him; male and female He created them.. Genesis 1: 27
Both men and women in the Body of Yeshua in the nations are called to pray and act for the Revival and for the Restoration of Israel!
Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations and set up My standard for the peoples; They shall bring your sons in their arms and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders; kings shall be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. Isaiah 49:22,23
REVIVAL AMONG THE ULTRA-ORTHODOX JEWS
In order to have Israel ready for His return, Israel must have a visitation of REVIVAL whereabouts even the most ultra-orthodox enemies of the Gospel would have their eyes open to Yeshua!
“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn. Zechariah 12:10
That is why this portion in Zechariah is giving us a clear inspiration of how to pray for REVIVAL to fall even over the ultra-orthodox Jews:
Abba pour out the Spirit of grace and supplication in the Land of Israel!
The land will mourn, every family by itself; the family of the house of David by itself and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself and their wives by themselves; Zechariah 12:12
It is clear from this portion that the men and the women are mourning separately as is common among the “Haredim” (Ultra-Orthodox Jews). So we know that Yah’s will is the salvation of all of Israel which includes the most hostile groups to the Gospel of the Kingdom just like Rav Shaul (Apostle Paul) was “arrested” by Yeshua and was dramatically saved!
ORTHODOX Vs. SECULAR and a NEW BRAND OF BELIEVERS!
Right now there is a fierce battle in the Israeli society between the secular and the ultra-orthodox. This is due to their religious fanaticism that even persecutes and spits on little girls for not being dressed modestly enough such as showing a portion of an arm or a leg! It really reminds us of the Taliban! It is actually the same religious spirit! On the other hand the secular Israelis have taken immorality to terrible extremes such as homosexuality being totally acceptable and so is abortion! However we must have a Heavenly Intervention between the different groups in Israel to prevent hatred from running its course! The answer is REVIVAL!
A large portion of the Israeli society (about 80%!) believes in the Creator-Elohim! Most people mention Him during the day and thank Him and whenever something good happens in their lives they praise Him!
There is a growing group of Israelis that are neither religious, nor secular. They are true believers that have not yet received the revelation of Yeshua!
For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Ezekiel 36:24,25
This is fast becoming a very large group with many young people in it that are seeking for TRUTH and don’t want religion but also do not want the immoral and godless lifestyle of the secular! It is so exciting to see the way that this group is growing in both faith and numbers. There is a grass roots move of the Holy Spirit among them and it manifests especially in the music!
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you. Zechariah 9:9
A MUSICAL REVIVAL!
The voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say: “Praise the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for His mercy endures forever” and of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the YHVH. For I will cause the captives of the land to return as at the first,’ says the YHVH.—Jeremiah 33:11
Judah means PRAISE, so there is a true musical revival in Israel with amazingly anointed singers and many, many prayer songs. There are songs that are actively reminding us of the Creator and even His Word and His Character. There are many songs that are coming from the depth of the heart of an entire nation (Israel!) that is seeking YHVH. This is not an individualistic move it is a collective move and it is everywhere! Please note that this emerging, growing group is not a Messianic (or Christian) group as such but rather it is totally Jewish and though they have not yet received the revelation of Yeshua, it will only take a little touch of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and the blinders will fall!
Just as it is written, “GOD GAVE THEM A SPIRIT OF STUPOR, EYES TO SEE NOT AND EARS TO HEAR NOT, DOWN TO THIS VERY DAY.” Romans 11:8
Once those blinders fall we will have a totally new Body of Messiah in Israel that will walk in an unprecedented Faith, Love, Obedience and Signs, Wonders and Miracles!
For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written. Romans 11:25
Let us pray today: Adonai remove the blinders from the eyes of the Israelis that believe in You without knowing You and let them SEE Yeshua!
THE BODY OF YESHUA IN ISRAEL NEEDS TO PREPARE
When we pray for Israel to come to REVIVAL we must pray first and foremost for TESHUVA (Repentance) in the Body of Yeshua of Israel. We must break through every obstruction to the Holy Spirit, every enemy of LOVE and Truth! Judgment starts FIRST in the House of YHVH (the Lord) and REVIVAL is always preceded by humble people coming to REPENTANCE!
And My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Then and only then we will be ready to receive the new Israeli spiritual babes that are coming in, full of Zeal, full with the spirit of prophecy, non- religious yet obedient to the Torah and thirsty for the Truth of the Kingdom! They will be like David and Joshua and it is high time to usher them in in the Speed of Light!
Pray for a mighty Prophetic Move of TESHUVA (Repentance) in the Body of Yeshua in Israel to prepare for a Great Revival!!
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness, and her salvation like a torch that is burning. Isaiah 62:1
