IDF chief: No weapon formed against us shall prosper

Israeli army chief echoes biblical promise as he highlights the triumph of the Jewish people over every historical attempt to annihilate them

Tuesday, April 09, 2013  Israel Today Staff

130409_gantzThough he failed to reference the Bible or acknowledge God directly, Israeli army chief Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz did seem to give a nod to the biblical promises concerning Israel while marking Holocaust Remembrance Day at the Auschwitz death camp on Monday.

Speaking to a large number of Israeli, Jewish and non-Jewish dignitaries, Gantz echoed Isaiah 54:17 in declaring that “there is no weapon or evil intention that can stand” against Israel.

Gantz said the presence of Israeli Jewish soldiers in Auschwitz, along with their supporters, was “living proof of the victory of light, the victory of morality, [and] the triumph of Israel.”

Even the most calculated and well-oiled attempts to destroy the nation of Israel have failed, and those who devised them have fallen from power, just as the prophet warned.

But knowing that such attempts will not cease, Gantz said Israel “knows better than to make light of existential threats,” a likely reference to the defiant Iranian nuclear program.

New Knesset Bible study group off to strong start

More than 30 Knesset members show up for inaugural weekly Bible study session initiated by new centrist party Yesh Atid, which has called for all Israelis to both learn the Bible and serve the nation

Friday, February 22, 2013  Israel Today Staff

tremble1We have already reported several times on Benjamin Netanyahu’s revival of the Prime Minister’s Bible Study group in Israel. Now the Knesset is getting in on the trend with the establishment of its own weekly sessions of scriptural enlightenment.

The initiative came from one of the new Knesset parties, the centrist Yesh Atid, which fields both secular and religious lawmakers.

Despite running an election campaign that emphasized an end to army exemptions for and exaggerated welfare payouts to the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sector, and subsequently being labeled anti-religious by ultra-Orthodox leaders, Yesh Atid has since the election been the most outspoken party about getting more Israelis to study the Bible.

Tuesday’s Knesset Bible study was led by Yesh Atid lawmakers Rabbi Shai Piron, Rabbi Dov Lipman and Torah scholar Dr. Ruth Calderon. More than 30 Knesset members attended the inaugural session.

“Seeing MKs and staff members from ultra-Orthodox through secular studying Torah together showed the beauty of the environment we are creating in this new Knesset,” Lipman told the Times of Israel.

There is a growing sense in Israel that the Bible needs to form the basis of the state’s culture and policies, but that the ultra-Orthodox must not have a monopoly on the biblical interpretation of what it means to be Jewish.

Israel faces existential economic threat, too!

Israel Today

Outgoing Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer this week stated that Israel has one of the strongest and most resilient economies in the world. However, Israel is facing a very serious existential threat… well, many existential threats, really, but one of those threats is the economy itself. Israel is a fully welfare state, and there are two large sectors – the ultra-Orthodox Jews and the Arabs – which largely do not contribute to the mainstream workforce or pay taxes. The other 70 percent of the population is left to carry the financial burden of the state…. and (includes the military service)….

Praise & Prayer Points

Praise God for the economy has been strong so far! However a serious problem has arisen now the burden bearers mid class mostly secular Jews are tired because they have to keep two jobs to make end meet and both parents need to work ; this leaves the children in institutionalised daycares full time from as 6 months old onward. Most important also is, that they can no longer afford to buy a home.

Let us pray for balance and equality and all to share the burden to work pay taxes (Neh.4;17 ) and go into military service (Neh.4;14) Let us pray for conviction on those who refuse to submit to work , pay taxes, serve in the military,.. may they gain a sense responsibility and be blessed as they submit !

Muslim woman: Jews don’t rape us, unlike Arabs

Israel Today Staff

An Arab Muslim mother from northern Israel who is aspiring to a life in politics called out fellow Arab women on Tuesday for failing to differentiate between the Jews and Arabs with whom they are in conflict. Commenting on a Facebook event page protesting the sexual harassment and torture of female activists in Egypt, Anet Haskia said Palestinian women should take a close look and realize how humane their Jewish “enemies” really are. “We are talking about the rape of Arab women in Egypt and other Arab states, and you still try to make a connection to Israel? Jewish men do not rape Arab women and girls! It is Arab Muslim men who are raping you, so focus this campaign on them and leave Israel alone.”

Praise & Prayer Points
Praise God for this courageous woman who can see clearly . Yes very very seldom for jewish men to rape women! She is wise to direct the muslim women attention the right way !

Let us pray for her salvation ! Let us pray for the women in the muslim countries in the world to be courageous to speak out and be spared from this horrible violence. We must pray for the Christian women who are also on high risk in these muslim countries ! REDEMPTION SALVATION PROTECTION LORD WE CRY OUT TO YOU!

Egyptian Christian: Why Is The Church Ignoring Us?

Israel Today Staff

An Egyptian Christian leader living in the US is calling out the global Church, in particular the Catholic Church, for failing to champion the plight of Egypt’s

8-10 million Coptic Christians, who are living increasingly dangerous conditions. Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, director of Voice of the Copts, wrote the following open

letter to the Vatican to plead his case….( very little response came back )

Prayer Point

Wow this is a large number of people (most likely nominal) Christians left to fend for themselves!

However we must pray for these souls for the Lord to convict mightily those who are in leadership of the church leadership for not responding to their cry for help ! Lord we ask You to blow throughout Egypt with Your Holy Fire to convict of sin and to give the revelation of the Living Saviour, Redeemer! May many find You! Make a way out for them give them a place of refuge within their own country !

Signs and Wonders from the Sky

By Kad Esh Map Team

We were struck by an unusual sequence of events :

UKRAINE 13 FEB. Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Roof partially collapses under heavy snow; people fear about radiations were quickly dismissed by the authorities?

VATICAN/ROME 13 FEB. Pope resigns his position. Few hours later a strong storm starting with lightings strikes twice the very top of the Basilica of…

St. Peter!

RUSSIA 15 FEB. Meteorites explosions on Chelyabinsk and area. More then a 1000 injured. Synagogue also hit during prayer; one attendant left his seat to check about the noise; while the stained glass window blows away inward by the meteor explosion. The person who left came back to his seat and found a good size piece of glass on it . Wow that was a close one ! Ps 97 1-9 describes the entire scene perfectly !

Prayer Points

Read Ps 97:1-9 Let us pray for the people of Ukraine, Vatican/Italy , Russia, and the rest of the world that their hearts will be open to seek the living God and His ways! We ask for strong repentance from idolatry of bowing down to worthless idols! As for Israel (represented by the man who was spared and the others) as it happens were gathered in prayer in the synagogue . What a better place to be in a house of prayer in time of trouble ..HalleuYah… let the entire house of Israel forsake her idols and let her be found in prayer before the King of Kings Yeshua the Messiah!

3 Neglected Children in Petach Tikva

Arutz 7

Police found one-and-a-half year old twins and their four-year-old brother, naked and in a serious state of neglect, Sunday evening, when they responded to neighbours’ calls of crying coming from their apartment. Police took the children to Schneider Children’s Hospital and detained their mother, about 30, for questioning.

Prayer Point
This is an extreme case ok; however we are concerned for the children in Israel who are left unattended at home at a tender age (we know this to be a fact we can see this all around us) because the parents have to work full time , and can not afford to pay for after hours school care! More 900.000 children live under the poverty line. The more blessed children are those who have grandparents who are actively involved in their care and lives.

Let us pray for the children ” better the family unit of Israel “…. that the government will make a way for at least 1 parent can stay at home to care for the children and take the excessive tax burned burden off of them and spread it out! Father bless the children of Israel we ask for your protection and help for them ..raise up a standard for their well being hear our cry mobilise more workers to help and to speak for these who can not speak for themselves!

Uprooting of Vineyard Part of Unending Harassment

Arutz7

Chairman Avi Ro’eh of the Binyamin Regional Council called, Monday, on security services to protect Jewish residents and agriculture in the region. Reacting to the uprooting of 3,000 vines in the vineyards in the Shilo-bloc community of Meshek Achya, Ro’eh said, “Unfortunately the uprooting of the vineyard is part of ongoing harassment by Arabs in the region which is directed at residents and agriculture. “We expect the army to protect the people and agriculture, and to lead to the order and security in the region. It is unthinkable that such an action may pass without any response from the police and security forces,” he stressed !

Prayer Point

Let us pray for the Benyamin region, Samaria and Judea, this kind behaviour of uprooting vineyeards and olive groves and during the summer months setting fire to fields has been going on for a long time, and it is in the increase! On top of this also rocks throwing attacks aimed at cars have become almost a daily happening. Please Father send forth the enforcers of the law and order to put a stop of this unnecessary destruction going on … we bind the destroyer from operating in the name of Yeshua !

We thank and appreciate You all for your prayer and intercession

May You and your families be blessed in the Name of Yeshua

Intimacy with Yeshua is death to “SELF”

Shabbat Letter from

kad-esh

I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved:
I did not plan to write on this topic but the Holy Spirit commanded me to do so. When I say “commanded”, I mean He “nudged me” but for me every prompting of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is a command. Most people relate to the Spirit’s promptings and light whispers so lightly that they can never develop true intimacy with Yeshua. Then they wonder what He is saying to them and why is it that they do not know what their purpose is in the Kingdom! Every time the Holy Spirit prompts me, impresses upon my heart or whispers into my being something to say or do for Him, it encroaches upon my plans, my timings and my ideas or opinions! In other words listening to the Holy Spirit demands self-denial and surrender.

Intimacy with Yeshua is only developed by carefully listening and obeying the promptings of the Holy Spirit and they are very surprising and challenging.

When I say “surprising and challenging” I do not mean that they always cause one to suffer (though often it does as death to “self” can come through suffering. Yeshua learnt obedience by the things that He suffered!) Sometimes the Spirit prompts us to do enjoyable things for ourselves like shopping or going to the spa and sometimes it leads us to do wonderful things for others, nevertheless it is always something we did not think about!

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27

I remember when I was freshly married and ordained to the Ministry, the Ruach (Spirit) gave me a dream and in that dream I had another haircut (my hair was long and quite old fashioned at that time) and a much more modern frame in my eye glasses. I was very surprised when I woke up to the clear realization that my Abba was “styling me” Himself! I promptly went to the hair dresser that cut my hair in the exact shape I saw in that dream, the exact same style that I have until this day! I know that “hair” doesn’t seem to be such an important thing but when you lose it or when it does not look nice you realize that YHVH gave us hair for a purpose! And what a blessing this has been! The Holy Spirit style of hairdo that He gave me is so easy to keep looking good that in spite of my many ministry trips I did not have the need to visit the hair salon too frequently! He really thinks about everything!

Intimacy with Yeshua means that He has access to every area of my life! Hair included

You are My friends if you do what I command you. John 15:14

Every time that I ignored a “prompting” or disregarded it because of insecurity, fear or laziness I ended in the “ditch” or in distress, missing something or making mistakes! I always regret it terribly when I was dull to Yah’s promptings!

I noticed that people ignore His whispers when it is “importune” (would “mess” our plans altogether) or when it seemed like a trifle or non-important. But when the Holy Spirit impresses us to do or say something it is never “trivial”. It is always IMPORTANT and it always makes a huge difference!

. John 16:13  But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come

I remember many years ago I was leading a meeting in our home in the Mountains of Jerusalem. This was a prophetic meeting and I was training this particular group of believers to move in the Prophetic Gifts as mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12. Everyone was encouraged to stir up their spirits by praying in the Spirit (in tongues see Jude 20) to build up their faith and to listen from the Holy Spirit. Then each one had to bless their appointed partner-brother or sister with a Prophetic Word. Everyone seemed to be flowing wonderfully! But then I saw a lady that was doing nothing. I asked her about this and she said to me: “I get nothing from the Lord to say!” I told her that I don’t believe it! For from my experience YHVH always is ready to speak something to His Creation! In fact He starts the whole Bible with “Elohim said….”

Then Elohim said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Genesis 1:3

And ever since, He is saying. He is always looking for a channel through whom He can speak. In fact one time there were no people and He had to use a donkey!

And YHVH opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?” Numbers 22:28

I told the sister, you surely have one word in your spirit? She said: “But it is nothing it does not mean anything!” I said: “GO ahead and give it!” she looked at her partner in this Prophetic Exercise and said “POPCORN!” Well the moment her partner heard the word “popcorn” she broke out weeping! You see the Holy Spirit immediately gave her revelation that her gifts and dreams had been dry like popcorn but soon with hot oil (anointing!) of the Holy Spirit – they will break open and will come to fruition! The word “popcorn” triggered in her this powerful and encouraging revelation! In fact this sister is now with Yeshua in Heaven and she is probably smiling from the Cloud of Witnesses for this one, seemingly insignificant word “popcorn” in a seemingly non important meeting in the Mountains of Jerusalem accompanied for many years to come and encouraged her in her earthly walk!

Never, never disregard ANY word, small or big that the Holy Spirit impresses upon you.
But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word. Isaiah 66:2b

Of course there are other times when the words spoken by the Spirit may make tremendous demands on your life! Such was the instruction that I received from the Holy Spirit at the start of my walk with Him. I was a few months old in the faith and the Ruach sent me to the UK. When I was there and staying with some precious pastors YHVH visited me and changed the course of my life and the life of many thousands forever! I was still very wounded from the ravages of sin and personal family tragedy! My two beautiful children of the tender age of 18 months and 5 were not in my custody after a painful divorce. My heart was broken for my children and yet I could not have them. While in the UK I worked as a nanny and was great at it as I gave to the other people’s children what I would have given to mine that were far away from me in Israel! The time in the UK was a time of deep discipleship and personal restoration. Our wise Elohim knew exactly what I needed! Then one day He surprised me with a most uncommon demand.

I was listening to a tape by a very well- known Bible Teacher and lover of Israel by the name of Derek Prince. He was preaching about Apostolic Ministry and being “sent out”. Then He gave an altar call asking who was willing to be “Sent Out” and to “Go” for the Kingdom. My heart was making flip-flops! I had been thinking lately that I would like to go to Bible School and to serve Yeshua full time but it did not look possible! It was a dream that I forced myself to die to. Then when this preacher gave the altar call I wanted to jump and say: HINENI! (Here I am) like Isaiah. I felt the Spirit pressing me to stand, but my thoughts were arguing “How can I answer such a Call, and what does it all mean? Will I ever be able to see my children if I am “sent out”? So for the sake of some sort of motherhood (even if a visiting mother at this point), I decided to deny the promptings of the Spirit and not to stand up before the Tape Recorder and the teaching tape! I stayed seated! However I felt like I was going to die! I was grief stricken! I had grieved the Holy Spirit!

Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30

I realized that I had sinned and begged Him to forgive me for putting motherhood and my children above Him and His High Calling! I begged Him to give me a second chance! I rewound the tape and listened to the altar call again! This time I jumped promptly to my feet and said “HINENI”, I will GO, I will be sent out! Indeed Apostolic Ministry has demanded everything from me and very often I could not see my children for long periods of time. One time for over three years! The price was high and it still is but Yeshua is really all that matters! At the end of the day it is only that obedience born of intimacy with Him that really bears fruit! Many thousands have been and are being touched daily all over the world since I said YES to the Spirit concerning Apostolic Ministry! Many have been saved, healed, delivered and discipled and they in turn are blessing others!

Whenever the Holy Spirit tells us to do something for the King against all odds it will bear Eternal Fruit! Sometimes you will only know much later or in Heaven how effective your service to Yeshua was but never doubt its effectiveness and importance!

What originates with Him, always succeeds if we are faithful to keep walking in intimacy and obeying His promptings for a lifetime!

He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over thenations. Revelation 2:26

About a month earlier than my UK experience, on the other side of the globe, in Israel, the conference took place in Jerusalem where Derek Prince preached this message that was challenging me! A handsome man by the name of Baruch Bierman in attendance prompted by the same Holy Spirit answered the Call to be sent out to the nations! About a year later Rabbi Baruch and I were married having answered the exact same Call with the exact same message and preacher without knowing about each other! Yah does all things PERFECTLY!

For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah Yeshua for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

It is never too late to start! Even the “smallest” of Calls makes a GREAT difference! Not everyone is called as an Apostle or to be a leader in a ministry. Some are called to SUPORT a Ministry or a Minister. But every gift and call that originates from YHVH is urgently needed to advance His Kingdom! He gave me a second chance to answer His Call! Maybe you need one too? If so go before Him today and ask Him to forgive you for considering your plans, circumstances, needs or loved ones above His Call and for giving Him excuses. Then go ahead and present yourself before Him.

Answer the Call and keep on answering as you obey even the lightest promptings of the Holy Spirit! Your life and the world will never be the same after you DO!

Do not quench the Spirit’s Fire” 1 Thessalonians 5:19

Turning Jcobs Trouble Into Blessing

nazioeilat

IAN JOHNSON

Recently I was confronted with a Messianic Jewish believer teaching a doctrine of destruction and judgment based around Jeremiah 30:7 known as Jacobs’s trouble.  He taught that soon the people of Israel are going to be destroyed down to only a handful or remnant.  It seems to me that his teaching was based on Scofields dispensational doctrine, which takes portions of the written word but largely ignores the Character and nature of YHVH.

It’s not just an error in Messianic/Christian belief, but also in extreme branches of Orthodox Judaism. In Israel in 2011 while in the wilderness of Zin in the Negev, I came across a group of Orthodox Jews from the USA who were praying “Against” the land of Israel. In their belief system YHVH would not set up a “land” of Israel until Messiah had come. So they felt it was their role to pray for the dismantling of the secular state of Israel. How could all these people not see the miracle of the regathered land of Israel?

How is it possible, that in the light of the miracle of the restoration of Israel happening in our times before our very eyes, that this sort of teaching even exists?  The key to unlocking the truth of scripture is not understood by some, because the heart of YHVH is not understood.

YHVH is not bound by our interpretation of his word, but he is bound by his own character and nature and this and this alone must be used in understanding scripture. Otherwise we will form strange man made doctrines. Under this thinking it could be said that the doctrines held by Mormons or Jehovah witness folk are true because they use the word of God to justify a faulty belief system. We know that these extremes are not YHVHs heart, and we mustn’t use the same form of interpretation to form our own faulty doctrines

Ezk36:22-30; makes it clear that YHVH is restoring Israel for his own names sake.  He also states I am going to clean you and deliver you from all your sins and idols, Then he says I am going to put my spirit in you and change your hearts. This is the heart of YHVH.  it is all HIS work and there is nothing of mans work in there at all. Romans 11 makes it clear that Jews have paid an enormous price so that the Gentiles can partake of salvation, but Paul goes on in Romans 11 to say that it is YHVH that will restore the Jews to their rightful place, I like to call this restoration “Resurrection glory” or as Paul puts it “Life from the dead”

THE SHOAH AS JACOB’S TROUBLE

Anne Frank the famous Jewish Shoah victim, who died in Auschwitz after being hidden in Holland for most of the war. In 1944 wrote: Who has afflicted us? Who has made us Jews different to all other people? Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up till now? it is G_d that has made us as we are, but it will be G_d, too, who will raise us up again. If we bear all this suffering and if there still be Jews left, when it is all over, the Jews, instead of being doomed will be held up as an example.

Anne Frank perhaps without realizing it, was actually echoing the words of Hosea 6:1-2: Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but He will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence.

Although this scripture is most often quoted as relating to the resurrection of Yeshua, as is common with Hebrew prophecy it has a dual meaning. An examination of the text makes it clear I think. The terms “he has torn US” and “he will heal US” is plural rather than being recorded in the singular. I suggest that this represents the days of Israel since or just before Messiah Yeshua was born.

The short lived independent nation of Israel won by Judas Maccabee or in the Hebrew Y’hudhah Ha Makabi ended with the Roman invasion 150 odd years before Yeshua’s birth. 2000 years (or two days) later the restoration of Israel started with Theodore Hertzls first Zionist congress in 1897, Israel has been miraculously resurrected and now we are in the third day of both Israel and Judah. Gentiles are grafted into Israel therefore we share her joy, and Judah is restored again to the land and soon as one new man in Messiah Jew & Gentile, Israel & Judah will rejoice to see their king.

The Rabbis during and around the second world war saw the sufferings they were experiencing as a sign that “The Age of redemption” was approaching, that is the coming (or for followers of Yeshua the return of Messiah) Rabbi Levin of Warsaw, actually recorded much of the suffering as a record; he described the birth pains of Jacobs trouble as “the pains before the coming of Messiah”

Jacobs trouble is fairly easy to see in the Shoah. Any one who doubts this MUST spend a whole day reflecting at Yad Vashem Shoah memorial.

There is a time of trouble coming for the nations called the great tribulation which will of course affect Israel but this is not the time of Jacob’s trouble. Jeremiah 30:7 actually says He (Jacob) will be saved out of it.

No one can doubt that the restoration of the land of Israel is indeed the result of the birth pains of Jacob’s trouble, and the good news is that Abba says Jacob will be saved out of it. This is YHVH’s heart.

The Jewish population has not yet recovered from the day of Jacobs trouble, in 1939 there were 16,728,000 Jews; today 74 years later, The Jewish population is still only 13,085,000, however Zechariah says as a promise, “I will call for them (as a Shepherd calls his sheep) and gather them in. THEN I will redeem them and they will be as numerous as before” (Zec 10:8)

I spoke to a young British Jewish girl who didn’t want to make Aliyah because she still carried Jacob’s trouble in her heart, she felt as a Jew she was safer outside of Israel rather than all being in one place.

But is G_d rounding up the Jews so he can destroy them?.. NO NO NO!!!  He is rounding them up so he can show forth his glory in them and show them tender mercy and great loving kindness and lead them to see Messiah. The Gentiles role in all of this is to show forth the resurrection power and glory of Yeshua to such an extent that our Jewish brothers will become jealous and return. No amount of theological nonsense from the Gentiles or mis-informed Jews is going to touch the hearts of Israel.  Martin Luther made the same mistake in his word based message, which became hatred towards the Jews and ultimately led to the Shoah. Only a demonstration of the resurrection glory of Messiah will turn Jewish hearts toward Messiah.

Many teachers understanding of the Character and nature of G_d is not redemptive, rather it is restrictive and religious, the very things that made Yeshua angry. Moses was able to turn YHVH’s heart regarding the sons of Jacob when he was going to destroy them. That’s the redemptive nature of G_d. ” He is Willing that none should perish”. This is the heart of YHVH.

Psalm 102:16 says “For I will rebuild Zion and appear as its glory“. The Hebrew context here (means end or last) indicates that this promise is given for the end generation. Joel refers to the end thus: Joel 3:1 ‘In those days and at that time I will restore the fortunes of JUDAH and Jerusalem.’ There is no mention of being destroyed, the constant theme is restored. Restoration is the heart of YHVH.

Amos 9:15 says

I will again plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them says the LORD your G_d

Abba’s heart is to restore Israel into the glory of her Messiah and we must remember that the G_d of Israel is a supernatural G_d who lives in a supernatural place and does supernatural things.

My personal experience in talking to secular Jews in Israel and in New Zealand is that they are not interested in religious words, but they do respond to the power of the Spirit of YHVH. Many friends in Israel who love and know messiah had their encounters not through words but through the action and workings of Ruach ha Kodesh.

It is now time to see Jacob’s trouble turned into Jacobs redemption, this is the heart of YHVH and we need to say as Ezekiel said when YHVH asks us “Can these bones live?” He said “You know Lord” by saying Lord you know, that was a smart answer from Ezekiel and it would be smart of us too to yield to His heart for Israel’s redemption. As it says in Acts 3:20-21; Messiah will remain in heaven until the restoration of all things, as Bishop Bierman puts it, The restoration of all things is, the Gentiles back to their Jewish roots and the Jews back to their land and their Messiah.

The teaching that says God is rounding up the Jews to destroy all but a remnant is designed by the enemy to stop Jacob returning to the land out of fear. Abbas heart is fear not for I am with you. Jacobs trouble will become Jacobs blessing.

Ian Johnson is a prophetic revelator based in Auckland New Zealand, speaking in conferences and Churches in Australia, New Zealand and the nations. He regularly brings people from the ends of the earth and the Islands of the sea to Israel to experience for themselves the heart of YHVH for the restoration of all things.

‘Jesus and Mary have become weapons in hands of Israel-haters’

“The identification of Mary and Jesus as Palestinians is clear, and is quite pervasive,” wrote Modai. “Not a few of the Irish actually believe that Jesus was an Arab Palestinian! In a Christian country like Ireland, it shouldn’t be a sin for us to occasionally point out the historical fact that Jesus was a Jew.”

Sunday, December 23, 2012 |  Yossi Aloni – http://www.israeltoday.co.il

121219_jesusandmaryAnti-Israel activists in Ireland have printed and distributed Christmas greeting cards that claim if Mary, the mother of Jesus, was alive today, she would be unable to give birth to Jesus as documented in the New Testament because Israeli soldier would hold her up at the Bethlehem checkpoint as they do all Palestinian women.   These new greeting cards were announced the same weekend that the Israeli embassy in Irelandcaused a storm by posting to its official Facebook page that if Mary and her baby, Jesus, were in Bethlehem today, they would likely be lynched as Jews. Shortly after, the embassy deleted the post and issued an apology.

Several days later, Nurit Tinari Modai, deputy chief of mission at the Israeli embassy, explained the affair thus:

“The use of the symbols of Christianity in a political context is considered acceptable as part of anti-Israel campaigns, Ireland! These symbols have been used in such a way many times in the past decade. Jesus and Mary have become a weapon in the hands of those who hate Israel in Ireland, and our post on Facebook should be seen in the context of this local discourse and as a response to the anti-Israel Christmas cards.”

According to Modai, it has become clear from the debate surrounding the Facebook post that many in Ireland do not know the realities on the ground in and around Bethlehem.

The Israeli embassy gave as an example a number of hypocritical Christmas cards that depict Christian icons in a political context. One in particular shows Mary and baby Jesus surrounded by pictures of violence and suffering among which is a photo of what looks like an Israeli soldier aiming his rifle a Palestinian mother and child.

That particular postcard comes with a letter the publisher, the UCC Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the perpetuates the popular Irish myth that were Mary alive in our days, she would be unable to deliver Jesus as recorded in the New Testament because Israeli soldiers would have detained her at the Bethlehem checkpoint, because Mary was a Palestinian! As such, Mary would have been forced to give birth at the checkpoint, as all Palestinian women are apparently forced to do…

Another card shows the three wise men on the way to visit Jesus after his birth,but they are unable to reach Bethlehem because of the Israeli security wall.

“The identification of Mary and Jesus as Palestinians is clear, and is quite pervasive,” wrote Modai. “Not a few of the Irish actually believe that Jesus was an Arab Palestinian! In a Christian country like Ireland, it shouldn’t be a sin for us to occasionally point out the historical fact that Jesus was a Jew.”

Winning the Battle of the Ages

shabbat_letter_2_clip_image001

 

 

For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. Revelation 12:12

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!

What is really happening in this world? Where are we going? What does the future hold? Some think that the development of High Tech and Nano-Technology plus Genetic Engineering shows that things in the world are getting better and better since humans seem to be brighter and brighter. While I am quite excited about some High Tech and other developments, the fact that we can now clone animals and even humans makes me feel jittery and for some reason it reminds me of the Tower of Babel. Can you imagine the euphoria they felt when they were about to cross the Atmosphere layer over the earth into the Stratosphere in their building before Elohim stopped them? After all, all they wanted with their own efforts was to reach the Throne of Elohim!

They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4

Just like a friend of theirs in the Angelic Force of Heaven, a guy by the name of Lucifer decided to lift himself up above the Stars of God and make himself equal to the Most High!

But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ Isaiah 14:13,14

Humans have always wanted to remove the Curse and all limitations by their own efforts! But the Word of Yah (God) tells us that there is only one way to remove the curse and its limitations of disease, poverty and the like. That one way has a name and His name is Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah! He said about Himself “I am the Light of the World”, He went on to say that whoever would walk with Him will never be in darkness!

This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:19-21

The Battle of the Ages is between Light and darkness, Truth and lies, the Rule of Messiah or of anti-Messiah (antichrist). It is about removing hell from earth and bringing Heaven down to earth.

Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10

This particular battle is already won but needs to be implemented seriously by those that have found the Light!

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. Matthew 11:12

Broken Foundations-Desensitized to Sin

If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3

The challenge that we face in the 21st Century is the broken foundations in nearly every area of life – In marriage, in relationships between parents and children, in the use of money, in education, in the media, in manners and of course in beliefs.

Foundations are so destroyed that we call what is good, bad and what is bad, good. We have been desensitized to sin and to ungodliness. Our senses have been bombarded with filth coming from media, newspapers, radio, TV, internet, cell phones, billboards etc. There is so much of it that we have accommodated filthy language, dirty thinking, dirty joking, rebellion against authorities, disobedience to parents, fornication, incest, immorality, greed, homosexuality, abortions, corruption in politics, divorces and so much more. This is happening not only in what we call “the world” but inside of our ranks as well, right here in what is supposed to be the holiest, purest and most powerful group of people on earth- The believers in the Messiah!

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, aholy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9

The battle is so “Titanic” that one must be a hero not to succumb to it. One must be 100% committed to the Messiah and disciplined in prayer, the Word, fellowship, praying in tongues, spiritual warfare, worship and declaration of the Word instead of circumstances.

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8: 6-8

Yes one has to be wholly devoted and surrender to the Holy Spirit 24/7 by talking to Yeshua continually, practicing His Presence, in order to maintain the anointing that destroys all yokes. We must learn to walk in the Spirit at all times, for if not darkness can easily engulf us! It is a huge battle but we are on the winning side!  We must be aware though that the enemy knows that he has a short time and therefore he has come to attack the foundations of this generation more ferociously than ever. We cannot be oblivious to it or passive! We must learn to walk in the spirit and in obedience! He promised Israel that at times of great darkness Israel would shine with great Glory! In the same way everyone that is grafted into the Olive Tree with Israel! It is at the time of the greatest darkness that we will be covered in the greatest Glory!

Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of YHVH has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness is over the peoples; but YHVH will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Isaiah 60:1,2

FAITH IS THE KEY!

There is one powerful promise that can help us to arise above the darkness that is covering the earth,

When a man’s ways are pleasing to YHVH , He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7

How can we walk in such a way that pleases YHVH? We have to walk like our Father Abraham by Faith and not by sight!

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. Hebrews 11:1,2

Just like those saints of old we also gain approval and have the God of the Universe on our side when we choose to believe His Word and Goodness above all!

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

In spite of all the High Technological advances of humans and the quantities of impressive  achievements, the Almighty is not moved by any one of them as much as He is moved by the Faith of those who love Him, obey Him and put their trust in Him alone. When He sees such faith He comes in with His Power and brings untold victories!

For the eyes of YHVH move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9a

When we walk by faith we do not depend on circumstances and we are not led by the media or our own needs. The only thing that is in front of us is the Word of Promise and the Word of Instruction of the Almighty! Yes! El Shadai has given us amazing promises and also powerful instructions in His Word. He also keeps on giving us promises and instructions as we fellowship with the Holy Spirit who interprets Yah’s Word to us. So in order to please the Father and have all our enemies at peace with us, in order to defeat the enemy at the gate (of our eyes, ears, mouth and heart!) we must walk by Faith believing His Word and Good Character against all odds! Believing only the Truth of His Word as reality and relating to the passing circumstances of life as temporary. When we spend all our day seeking Him (as we walk, as we drive, as we work etc.) and meditating on His Word and Goodness our gates will be open to the Kingdom of Heaven and closed to the hell that is flooding this world daily from all sides!

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19

We must use the Keys of the Kingdom and BIND the enemy! But what does “bind” mean? It means to FORBID. That is right, we have to forbid the influx of filth from touching our soul and mind and the only way to do it besides saying “I bind you satan” is actually putting on the LIGHT inside of you as you spend 24/7 with your mind on things above!

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2

Once the light inside of us is bright and clear, all darkness (and it does not matter how thick) must flee! Light is stronger than darkness and truth is stronger than lies! There is no comparison between Yeshua and satan. We must know this, because the biggest, fattest and most common lie is that satan is too strong for us; that disease, poverty, immorality, the media and whatever, is too strong for a “normal” believer! Beloved “normal” believers and even the smallest one among us is greater than Yochanan,  John the Baptizer!

Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Matthew 11:11

The Word of our Abba tells us that those that are redeemed by Him have a supernatural ability to be strong though they are naturally weak and to multiply though there are many obstructions!

The smallest one will become a thousand, and the least one a mighty nation.
I, YHVH, will hasten it in its time
. Isaiah 60:22

 

SPEECH ACTIVATED FAITH-WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?

I loved at the start of my walk with Yeshua, the song that says “let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich, let the blind say I can see,  because of what the Lord has done for me”. The key for this victorious walk is in the SAY. We can have whatever we SAY.

22 And Yeshua answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Mark 11:22, 23

So what are we saying? And when we pray, are we praying in faith?

Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:24

Before anything manifests in the natural we know that we have already received it! That is faith!

Before we bought the Eilat Prayer Tower, in fact before I signed the contract I had already written a flyer saying “we have signed the contract” and I did not have any money for it in my hands yet! Kingdom reality manifests when People of Faith bring the Kingdom down from the Heavenly realm to the earthly realm by their prayers of faith and words of faith!

Then Elohim said, “light be”; and light was. Genesis 1:3 from Hebrew

Remember that the thickest darkness was pierced right at Creation when Elohim SAID “Light BE!” and Light was! Yeshua is the Word made flesh and He only SAID what He heard His Father speak. If it was good for Him, it is good for me! I am sure that He spoke not one word of unbelief though He was pure and truthful all the time. The Truth that He lived in, is the Truth of the Heavenly Kingdom and not the reality of hell on earth due to the Adamic induced curse. He knew that this “hellish reality” can be changed to Heaven on Earth by the Power of His walk and talk. That is why He preached, healed and cast out devils all the time. So can we, because believe me we are equipped with all that we need to win the Battle of the Ages and present our Father with a multitude of newly born children!

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. Matthew 17:20

Walk in the Light, Talk in the Light, Stay in the Light and spread the Light!

We are the winners in the Battle of the Ages!

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. John 14:12
