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

Warning: The world is ending and the Messiah is coming!

Monday, July 09, 2012 | Aviel Schneider – israeltoday.co.il

On one of Israel’s largest websites Ynet a yellow banner with large letters appeared on Saturday proclaiming the coming of the Messiah. “The Messiah is in Israel. This will be the last government of Israel.” A click on the banner leads directly to the website 871. Here, the religious creators of the site warn about the end of the world. “The next leader will be the Messiah Ben David. The situation in the country is getting worse and the government will become more incapable. Only the Messiah can save Israel during the war of Gog and Magog. In the near future the world will witness terrible disasters, like earthquakes and tsunamis. Cities in Europe and the United States will disappear in the sea. The world’s financial system will collapse and God will destroy the Mammon (Yiddish slang for “money”). Anti-Semitism in the world will get worse, just like on the eve of World War II. For every inch of land that the government abandons the people of Israel will be punished for, because this is a rebellion against God. Solely because the two-state solution was discussed in Israel we must pay a high price. This land was promised to the people of Israel for eternity and who negotiates about the God-given land will not experience the redemption.” The ones behind the website, who regularly publish warning signals in the Israel network, are unknown. The majority of Israel’s society does not take such websites seriously, but still they appear on Israel’s largest Internet portals, such as Ynet.

THE EILAT REPORT BAMIDBAR-IN THE DESERT

Sing to Elohim, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts, Whose name is the YHVH, and exult before Him. Psalm 68:4

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!

This entire report is dedicated to understand the importance of the Desert and most particularly the City of Eilat  for the restoration of Israel and the salvation of mankind! Everything that has fashioned Israel as a nation and everything that has to do with Salvation started in the desert! Just to mention a few important events:

  1. Moses is prepared as the Deliverer of Israel  in the Desert of Midian for 40 years
  2. Torah is give in the desert of Sinai
  3. Israel is fashioned as a nation walking for 40 years in the desert
  4. King David is prepared to rule Judah and Israel in the wilderness of Ein Gedy
  5. The Kippurim (Atonement) scapegoat is sent into the desert
  6. Demons roam in desert places after they leave a person
  7. Yochanan Hamatbil (John the Baptizer) is prepared in the Desert.
  8. Yochanan also preaches REPENTANCE to Judah in the desert
  9. Yeshua is immersed (baptized ) under Yochanan in the Desert of Judea

10. Yeshua is empowered for Ministry for 40 days in the Desert.

11. Shaul-Paul the Shaliach (Apostle) was prepared for 3 years in the Desert

12. The last and most important even before the RETURN of Messiah Yeshua is the restoration of the Anusim/Sephardic Jews to their possession in the Negev (South) Desert of Israel!

There is of course many more things that happen in the desert but these are the most important ones! In Hebrew the word for DESERT is MIDBAR and MIDBAR comes from the word DABAR which means WORD or the WORD! So we see that in the MIDBAR (Desert!) The DABAR (Word!) is given to the people of Israel and it is called TORAH (5 Books of Instructions also called 5 Books of Moses starting with the Top 10 Commandments!).

It is this very thing that has forged the People of Israel as “ The People of the Book”. These Commandments given to our people in the Desert are what I call “The Heavenly Constitution!”. Any nation that will adopt the Top 10 Commandments as the national constitution will thrive!

Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever mine. Psalms 119:98

We can see that YHVH delights in preparing His Chosen Vessels in the Desert: Moses, Joshua, King David, Yochanan Hamtbil (John the Baptist), Yeshua the Messiah, Shaul-Paul the Apostle and so on….

O God, You are my Elohim; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1

In the Midbar (Desert), the Dabar (Word) speaks in a clear way to the people that are being prepared for a great task! In that place of dryness, prophetic revelation is poured out like Rivers of Living Water to those that are thirsty and dry and seeking Him! The MIDBAR is the Divinely Appointed place of preparation for Greatness! It is from this place that all of Israel has been impacted! It is from this place that Yeshua was anointed to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and it is to this place that the Holy Spirit sent us almost 5 years ago!

He changes a wilderness into a pool of water And a dry land into springs of water. Psalm 107:35

EILAT THE STRATEGIC SOUTH GATE OF ISRAEL

Islamic Jihad book: Eilat ‘life or death’ for Israel

Terror organization published book claiming Palestinians have underestimated southern-most city’s strategic value to Israel: ‘From here Israel sends out its octopus arms to the coasts, cities and capitals of Africa, Asia
Elior Levy from Ynet

The volatile security situation in Sinai, last summer’s terror attack on Route 12 and the recent firing of Grad rockets towards Eilat have led Israel to reassess its defense strategy vis-?-vis its southern borders. A new book released by Islamic Jihad’s armed wing, the al-Quds Brigades, highlights the strategic importance of Eilat and its port to Israel.

Addressing the book, titled “Umm Rashrash (Eilat) – life or death for Israel,” a senior Jihad operative said, “From the city of Eilat (Israel) sends out its octopus arms to the coasts, cities and capitals of Africa and Asia and cunningly sneaks into the fabric of their lives to carry out its plans, which are aimed to destroy these cities and thus preserve (Israel’s) existence.”

The 156-page book explores Eilat’s history and its conquest while claiming that Jewish leaders from the early days of Zionism recognized Africa’s importance. To prove its point, the book mentions that the Zionist movement’s leaders considered establishing a Jewish state in Uganda. It also notes that late prime- minister David Ben-Gurion sought to improve Israel’s relations with various African countries in hopes they would support the Jewish state during crucial votes at international bodies.

WARNING LIGHTS!
In the book, Islamic Jihad also outlines its plan to restrict Israel’s movement from the Red Sea to the Horn of Africa:

  • Maintain security-related cooperation between the Arab states and attempt to establish a joint Arab naval force.
  • Boost Arab military presence in the region.
  • Form a strategic alliance between Arab countries bordering the Red Sea.

    The senior Jihad operative admitted that the Palestinians have underestimated Eilat’s strategic importance. “We did not allow our soldiers (attack) this target – only rarely – because we did not have any knowledge regarding the importance of this target and the special place Eilat’s port has in Israel’s strategic outlook,” he said.

THE EILAT PRAYER TOWER!

The gates of your land are opened wide to your enemies; Fire consumes your gate bars. Nahum 3:13

When YHVH sent us to Eilat we did not fully realize the purpose neither did we know the fight that was awaiting us. Satan had kept the South Gate of Israel for long enough and he was not happy for us to relieve him from his evil “gatekeeping job”. Most of the wars of Israel have started from Eilat and the Body of Yeshua was in terrible strife!

And knowing their thoughts Yeshua said to them, “ Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand. Matthew 12:25

We have always loved, blessed and prayed for the South Gate of Israel but what are we there to do? And why leave the beautiful Mountains of Jerusalem for this dryness so far away from the rest of Israel. Indeed we felt like “John in the Isle of Patmos” exiled and banished! A few prophetic words began to come forth about establishing worship in the South Gate, other words about Revival and yet other words about the return of the Anusim according to Obadiah 20 (Spanish Jews that were forced to convert to Catholicism in 1492 in Spain and Portugal). All these were great visions and great prophetic words and we started to see signs of fulfillment as the Eilat Prayer and Worship Tower was established almost 4 years ago!

This was a pioneer work of the Spirit that began to be contested by every power and principality in the region, by non- spirit filled Christians, by spirit filled Christians and by nearly “everything that moved”! Though we remained quite low key all these years, the taxi drivers began to realize that there is a Prayer Tower in Eilat as many of the saints coming and going to the Tower from the nations to pray and worship would testify to them of its existence!

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14 NIV

TERROR ATTACKS THWARTED!

Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 18:19

Many Grads and other rockets have been fired against Eilat and yet in a miraculous way they have missed all human targets and there has almost been no damage in the city! Praise be to Yah that has answered the insistent prayers and prophetic proclamations that have come out of the Eilat Prayer Tower!

Heart Cry for Revival

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

During all these years we have stood in intercession, repentance and prophetic proclamation for REVIVAL in Eilat and in all of Israel, for the protection of Eilat’s borders and for the return of the Anusim! The enemy tried to deal tremendously low blows against us, to the point that we would want to die or leave! Blow after blow, rejection after rejection, stroke after stroke, we have hang on for dear life keeping the South Gate of Israel covered, the prayer and the worship going, our fight for unity and revival in the Body alive against all odds!

The Finnish Season

During the winter months Eilat has a very nice climate so many Scandinavians and especially from Finland frequent the city! Many of them visited the Eilat Prayer Tower and were mightily touched by the Word and the Spirit! Many of them returned to Finland more rested because of the nice holydays in this beautiful city but also because of the touch of the Holy Spirit, deliverance, healing and revelation that they received during the services in the Tower!

The Ends of the Earth

Wonderful Vessels of Yah (God) such as Prophet Ian Johnson from New Zealand, Pastor Phyllis Lines from Australia and Pastor Elizabeth Harold from Papua New Guinea have visited the Eilat Prayer Tower and have been blessed to take the Dabar (Word) from Zion to their nations and have also blessed the City of Eilat and the saints that have gathered with prophetic prayers and encouraging words!

A Multitude of Nations!

Many powerful saints from all walks of lives, prophets, intercessors and apostles have visited the Tower, have been refreshed, transformed and have left a deposit of anointing that is opening the Heaven over Eilat! Among those nations are Germany, UK, Italy, Norway, France, USA, Curacao, Brazil and many, many more!

The wilderness and the desert will be glad,and the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; Like the crocus. It will blossom profuselyand rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy.Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Isaiah 35:1,3

Israelis are Being Saved!

Many Israelis have been touched by a word, a book, a song or a prayer. Some we never see again and we believe that the seed planted will bear much fruit but some return to the Tower.

THE STORY OF AHAVA

The story of Ahava (not the real name) is particularly exciting! She is our neighbor and I was concerned about her demeanor so started praying for her. Her boyfriend told me she was sick and had fallen and broken her ribs. On Passover eve I passed through their apartment only to see them and their friends totally drunk! When I asked the boyfriend to speak to Ahava, she came staggering to the door and hang on my neck on a “drunk embrace”. I told her “I am concerned about you and am praying for you”. Ahava said: “Help me, please, he (boyfriend!) broke all my ribs! Will you help me? I said Yes I will! On the following day that was Shabbat I passed through her apartment and told her “you are coming with us to pray”! “Where to? She asked?”  I said “to a good place!  We took her in the car to the Eilat Prayer Tower to our Shabbat meeting. She already gave her life to Yeshua in the car and we ministered some deliverance during the meeting!

When she stepped into the worship hall, she felt like she had stepped into Heaven! Since then Ahava has broken all ties with the boyfriend, has cleansed her apartments from all witchcraft objects and amulets, is being disciple and is studying the Word and praying every day! She frequents most of the Worship and Prayer meetings in the Tower!

We did not know that Ahava was an accomplished singer that has established a well- known band in the City of Eilat! She looked like a complete wreck when we found her, divorced, living in sin, poor, sick and old! Today to the Glory of Yah Ahava is starting to bloom like never before and she takes every opportunity to share with all that we and Yeshua rescued her from sure death!

PRAYER

Please pray for Ahava and her two children that are not with her and keep praying that the Eilat Prayer and Worship Tower will remain a beacon of light in the Desert of Eilat. Pray that it will be filled with Word and Worship all the time that many more intercessors from the nations will come and that many Israelis will find Messiah and will serve Him radically and especially musicians and omanim (artists!)! We and our team are here to stay until YHVH so desires! We have suffered much these last 5 years here but we know that REVIVAL is knocking at the door of the South Gate of Israel and that our stand has made a difference!

AN OPEN HEAVENS!

Lately the Holy Spirit has showed me that there is an Open Heavens in Eilat because of the prayer and the worship from the Eilat Prayer Tower! Praise be to Yah!

THANK YOU!

Thank you beloved friends and partners for believing in us and in our calling and for supporting us faithfully in prayer and giving! Thank you to all the intercessors that have come and gone from the Eilat Prayer Tower! Thank you for all the offerings that you have left behind to enable us to continue without giving up, to make the desert bloom! Thank you Yeshua that Your Grace is sufficient for us and Your strength is made perfect in our weakness!

We welcome to the Tower Team beautiful Sarah who is a great blessing in all respects and an accomplished musician and especially violinist! The sounds of praise coming out of that violin can truly cause the Glory to come down! We also welcome Pastor Peggyan who will be the Tower Keeper for the next year! May Yah use you mightily to make the MIDBAR bloom!

For the Restoration of Israel and the Salvation of the Nations against all odds!

A CALL TO ARMS

Torah Portion: Tazriah-Metsorah –Vayikrah (Leviticus) 12-15

For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece; and I will make you like a warrior’s sword. Zechariah 9:13

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved:

There are times when “normal ministry” is not enough but rather an urgent “Call to Arms” in order to gain as much Kingdom Territory as possible in the shortest amount of time! All those that are aware of the times that we are living in agree that these are indeed the End Times and that Bible Prophecy is being fulfilled “at the speed of light”. Moreover it is clear to all those of us that love Yeshua with all of our hearts that “business is not as usual”.

We are standing before the greatest awakening of all times!

YHVH (the Lord) is recruiting His End Time Army! The time of “civilians” in His Body has come to an end and also the time for a hippy kind of “pacifism”! Yeshua wants His Bride pure and holy and ready to advance the Kingdom like never before! He is eagerly waiting for His True Bride to shine to such an extent that the powers of darkness will be blinded by the Light!

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

We are living in extreme times and extreme times demand extreme measures! Satan has been kidnapping the hearts of this generation into gross immorality of a kind never seen before. Fornication, drug addiction, homosexuality, abortion and the like are not considered shameful anymore. This present day society has grown accustomed to darkness and has exchanged light for darkness. It calls the evil, good and the good evil. Very basic foundations are destroyed already!

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

Yeshua said to His Jewish disciples about 2000 years ago that they must be light and salt in the midst of the world!

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Matthew 5:14-15

He prayed a prayer in John 17 where He requested Abba not to take the believers out of the world but that they will be preserved from the world in the midst of the world!

I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. John 17:15

In other words He did not suggest building communities of believers separately from the rest of the people but rather asked us to shine in the midst of darkness!

HOLINESS MUST BE RESTORED!

But how can we shine when the lifestyle of a large portion of believers is almost the same and some -times even worse than that of the neighbor next door? How can we shine if we practice the same social practices as the rest? It is so common for young Christians to date and to experiment sex before marriage, just like anyone else. Purity and abstinence is not in “fashion” among a large amount of church goers! Too many Christian women have experienced at least one abortion because of one reason or another. Divorce in the Church is at an all -time high not any less than among the “worldly people” and self- centeredness and rebellion runs rampart just like anywhere else!

You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under- foot by men. Matthew 5:13

Disrespecting parents and elders has become totally acceptable just like with the rest of the world and making plans without consulting the Almighty is quite normal among believers! In fact it is quite amazing to see that too many Christian couples got married because of sexual attraction and lust and without consulting the Holy Spirit, their parents or their pastors first. It is no wonder that so many end in divorce! Covenant are not covenants, promises are not promises and people that are considered good believers and churchgoers break their word right and left and think nothing of that!

In many church circles I would be considered “religious” for preaching repentance, purity and holiness but the entire Bible speaks of it!

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12: 14 NIV

The word Holy in Hebrew is KADOSH which means set apart, separated and not for common use. What does that mean to us? How do we relate to the call to Holiness? One thing is sure without Holiness no one will make it to Heaven; no one will see the Lord!

Holiness starts when we respond to the Holy Spirit! He is the Spirit of Holiness! I remember when I just got saved the Holy Spirit did not let me smoke or speak evil anymore. But how many times we shut the voice of the Holy Spirit because of convenience? Do we let the Holy Spirit bring conviction to our hearts; do we ask our Abba to help us? Do we practice an intimate walk with Yeshua and His word? Those are very important and urgent questions! In fact this is a matter of life and death to many! We are at the time of the greatest apostasy or the greatest AWAKENING! I prefer an awakening even if it is a bit “rude” than apostasy don’t you think?

HOLINESS AND UNITY

Consider this serious scripture:

“Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of YHVH. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6

Unless the relationships between parents and children is restored to love and holiness the earth will suffer a greater curse. One of the biggest problems inside and outside of the Church is strained relationships, hatred and strife in families. Can the earth suffer a greater curse unless there is repentance in this matter? Indeed it can and it will! We must struggle to have repentance and reconciliation in families. This is a real war!

And what about the greater family, the family of Yah (God?). There have been so many church splits and so many strained relationships inside of churches? Have we forgotten that it is as we dwell in harmony that Yah commands the Blessing?

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! For there YHVH commanded the blessing—life forever. Psalms 133:1-3

But how can we live in harmony if sin is running rampart? Sin always brings strife and every demonic spirit! We must repent and be cleansed at the speed of light!

Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. John 17:17

Many years ago the Almighty spoke to me and told me that restoring the Church to the Hebrew Foundations of faith is a matter of life and death! I was amazed at the sharp revelation but when Israel was in apostasy Elohim called them through Jeremiah the Prophet to go back to the ancient paths!

Thus says YHVH, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16

Jeremiah told the People of Israel to STAND or to STOP and to look for the ancient paths of Torah, righteousness and holiness. He promised them that if they found those ancient paths given by YHVH to the People of Israel, they would also find REST for their souls! Most of the people today are restless, impatient and hyperactive. If the pastor preaches more than ½ hour they begin to fidget in their chairs. They have no rest in their souls, there is no shalom!

THE ARMY OF THE SONS OF ZION

Beloved this is a Call to Arms! We must preach repentance to the Church at the speed of light! The whole Body of Messiah world- wide has to find these Ancient Paths that the Jewish disciples of the First Century walked in. This move of restoration and awakening must happen globally BEFORE Yeshua’s return!

Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Yeshua, the Messiah appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. Acts 3:19-21

It is time for the Sons of Zion to be revealed! It is time for the Army of the Sons of Zion to come forth!

For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece; and I will make you like a warrior’s sword. Zechariah 9:13

And who are they? Those that have Zion as their Mother! Those that follow a Jewish Messiah are grafted into the Olive Tree, love Yah’s Torah and follow Biblical (Hebrew!) Culture!

But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. Romans 11:17, 18

Who are the Sons of Greece? Those that have Greece/Babylon as their Mother, they follow ancient Greek culture with pagan feasts and celebrations, they hate everything Jewish, are afraid of the Torah and practice a “cheap grace gospel”. This cheap grace gospel is nothing but license to sin in the name of “grace”.

Many of the true Sons of Zion are mixed with Babylonian Greek culture, replacement theology and a cheap grace gospel. They are suffering in their spirit as they know that something is wrong and that something is missing in their faith but do not know what it is! There are MILLIONS of these Sons of Zion, true Sons and Daughters of the Most High God that feel trapped in a Babylonian religious system that has left them dry and confused! It is heart breaking as they are true children of the King but do not know Him, His Word or the true Gospel made in Zion as the Jewish Apostles preached 2000 years ago!

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. Revelation 22:4

For their sake we must ACT and we must act quickly to help restore them to the True Faith as handed by Yeshua to His Jewish Disciples prior to the Council of Nicaea! We must bring Israel and the Jewish Roots of the faith to them quickly before they are swept away with the judgment that is coming to this present world system!

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

We have a Great Harvest to collect in Israel and in all the nations of the world but it starts with a Great Awakening in the Church itself!

The Awakening of the Sons of Zion!

Jew and Gentile grafted in together in the same Ancient Olive Tree with the same Roots, the same Word and the same Hebrew Foundations!

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the (Jewish) apostles and (Hebrew) prophets, Messiah Yeshua Himself being the corner stone. Ephesians 2:19, 20

When the Army of the Sons of Zion is READY, we will see the greatest REVIVAL that the world has ever seen!

For if their (the Jews) rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? Romans 11:15

THE CRY OF THE ANUSIM – SPECIAL PASSOVER 2012 EDITION

Turn to freedom our captivity and restore our fortunes, O YHVH, as the streams in the the Negev (South), are restored by the torrents. Psalms 126:4 AMP

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved:

This coming Shabbat we are celebrating the Feast of Passover and Matsa (Unleavened Bread) for seven days. We rejoice in Yeshua being our Passover Lamb through which both Jew and Gentile can be free from the bondage of sin and escape the coming judgment!

Purge out therefore the old leaven that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us. 1 Corinthians 5:7 KJV

We remember that all of Israel was a slave in Egypt for 430 years until YHVH heard our cries and sent us a deliverer from among our people by the name of Moses to confront the wicked rule of Egypt on our behalf. Finally after 10 astounding plagues against Egypt YHVH set us free to start our journey back to our Covenant Land of Israel. We call this the Exodus and indeed the whole story is in the book of Exodus in the Holy Scriptures. We are commanded to celebrate Passover and Unleavened Bread forever!

And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to YHVH throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever. Exodus 12:14

ONE LAST CRY

And the sons of Israel sighed because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry for help because of their bondage rose up to Elohim. So Elohim heard their groaning; and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Exodus 2:23,24

There is one last cry of the Jewish People to be released from bitter bondage of exile. This is the Cry of the Anusim. There is still one large Exodus awaiting the Jewish People. This is the Last Exodus, the Exodus of the Sephardic Jews that lost their identity due to the Spanish Inquisition since 1492.

And the exiles of this host of the sons of Israel, who are among the Canaanites as far as Zarephath, and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad will possess the cities of the Negev. Obadiah 20 NASB

There are a people on earth that are becoming known at the speed of light! These are a hidden Lost and forgotten people that until recently not many knew about or even gave them a thought or a minute of prayer. The most surprising fact about these people is that they are descendants of Spanish Jews that lost their identity due to the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition (from 1492) that forced them to either convert to Christianity or be expelled out of Spain after 500-1000 years of living there.

A few of them, like my family chose to flee Spain relinquishing all our possessions but not being willing to relinquish our identity as Jews. Many more yielded to the threats and converted reluctantly while keeping their Jewishness under- ground. These were called the Conversos or the Crypto Jews. There was a large number of Portuguese Jews that were not even given the option to decide whether to convert or no, they were simply baptized en masse in the central square of Lisbon against their will. These are called the ANUSIM.

The ANUSIM are those who were forcibly converted in Spain or in Portugal against their will therefore they kept their Jewish traditions under penalty of death.

BNEI ANUSIM- THE DESCENDANTS OF THE ANUSIM

Then you will say in your heart, ‘who has begotten these for me, since I have been bereaved of my children and am barren, an exile and a wanderer? And who has reared these? behold, I was left alone; from where did these come?’” Isaiah 49:21 NASB

Statistics tell us that there are about 60 Million descendants of the general population of the Conversos, those Spanish Jews that decided to convert rather than be expelled from Spain. They carry well known Latin names such as Perez, Gonzalez, Lopez, Hernandez , Olivares and others that end in ES or EZ , S or Z at the end like Ruiz, Diaz and many more!

However among those 60 Million descendants there are a certain number of them that we would call the Anusim because they did not choose to convert, they were forced to do so and they kept the traditions of our ancestors alive yet with time (over 500 years!) they forgot their identity but the traditions remained. Many of them light candles on Friday night (start of Shabbat) and they do not why, or put a white table cloth and have a festive meal and do not know why, they mostly marry among themselves, keep some sort of version of Passover and again do not know why.

These traditions were kept at great cost. If any Christian-Catholic neighbor would notice them, they could report it to the Inquisition authorities, the Auto de Fe or the moving tribunal of the inquisition. They in turn would interrogate the culprit which would most likely end being burn alive in the central square of the city after horrendous tortures and terrible humiliations. The Auto de Fe of the Inquisition moved all over Spain but also it travelled to North and South America, to the new continent discovered by Cristopher Columbus. This Auto de Fe would reach all the way to countries such as Peru, Mexico and Colombia.

Columbus was a Christian from a Jewish family that had converted much before the Spanish Inquisition started. Contrary to most beliefs, what moved him to do his voyages to discover new land for the Crown of Spain was not his patriotism but rather his concern for his Jewish People. In fact all of his journeys were funded not by Spanish money but by Jewish money of some prominent Jews that supported him so he could fill his boats with Converso-Jews (New Christians as they called them) or Marranos (meaning “pigs” as they were also called). Columbus purpose was to take these Converso Jews as far as possible from the ever seeing eyes of the Spanish Inquisition in order to rescue them from its grip. Nevertheless eventually the Auto de Fe began to visit all the new lands and colonies established by Columbus and his peers so the terror continued throughout the Americas, both North and South America.

THE END TIME RESTORATION

For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land. Ezekiel 36:24

In the last 20 years YHVH has been moving to restore these lost Jews, the Anusim to the bosom of Israel; both to their identity as Jews and to the Land of Israel. I was sent in 1994 to Toledo in Spain where the Spanish Inquisition started and from where my Sephardic Ancestors were expelled. Sepharad is the Biblical term for Spain and a Sephardic Jew is a Spanish Jew. At the time I did not know that I was interceding for the Anusim as I was repenting for the sins of my Spanish Jewish ancestors and also mourning the loss and the horrors that they suffered. I prophetically called them home to Israel and to the God of Israel!  A while later the Ruach Adonai (Spirit of the Lord) revealed to me that I was prophetically calling the Anusim home. I believe that this powerful time of heart breaking intercession in Toledo began to create a Reality of Restoration and therefore the Return of the Anusim was set in motion first in the spirit and then in the natural!

In 2002 I was led by the Spirit to do the first Prophetic Convocation in Israel for the Restoration of the Sephardic Jews. I was joined by Dr. Dell Sanchez who has written two very important books on the subject: The Last Exodus and Alyah. He, himself is a son of Anusim (Ben Anusim) and has been committedly working for the restoration of our people. It was during this prophetic convocation that I cried out to YHVH to give us 6 Million Anusim (a tithe of the 60 Million!) to return to Zion and to settle the Negev!

6 Million lost Sephardic Jews as a restitution for the 6 Million Jews that we lost during the Nazi Shoa (Holocaust) in Germany and all of Europe during WW2!

HASTENING THE ANUSIM’S RESTORATION!

Then said the YHVH unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:12 KJV

However the restoration of the Anusim has been very slow and actually too slow. The Israeli authorities that are fast recognizing the existence of the Anusim, do not allow them to make Alyah (return, come up and immigrate to Zion) without them being converted into Orthodox Judaism. A few Anusim have done this conversion that is quite long and arduous and it certainly cannot answer the need of conversion of millions of them. In fact converting them to Orthodox Judaism is a type of violation since most of Israel is not Orthodox and these Anusim have been forced to convert before to a religious system. We must understand that being a Jew is both an ethnic issue as well as a belief system in the Torah as given to Moses. However among us Jews there are many expressions of this belief system and Orthodox Judaism (being the most extreme) is only ONE of them!

Also among the Jews that have been allowed to make Alyah (immigrate) there are hundreds of thousands of them that are not religious in any form. In the 1990’s after the fall of the iron curtain about 1 Million of Russian Jews returned to the Land of Israel! The majority of them had absolutely no religious upbringing and had no knowledge of their own Jewish history or traditions nevertheless they were accepted in the Land as equal fellow Jews without any need of conversion!

Moreover in the 60’s there was a large group of people that called themselves “The Black Hebrews” from the USA that claimed to be part of the tribe of Judah that went into exile after the Fall of Jerusalem to Rome in year 70 AD. Though they were Christians, they fought and they won and they are now residing in the Land of Israel without any need for conversion. They live today in the Negev town of Dimonah leading their own lifestyle as a very close sect with its own traditions.

None of these were required to convert so why the Anusim?

The Anusim’s Return will lead to Messiah’s Return

And the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad will possess the cities of the Negev. The deliverers will ascend Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the kingdom will be YHVH’s. Obadiah 20, 21

Satan is deathly afraid of the Anusim. The return of the Sephardic Jews to Israel and their settling in the Negev is the last sign before Messiah’s return! If he manages to delay or obstruct the return of the Captives of Jerusalem from Sepharad (Spain), he will manage to delay or obstruct the return of Messiah to rule and reign for 1000 years!

Anusim or Islam?

And the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad will possess the cities of the Negev. Obadiah 20b

The Negev is the South Desert of Israel and it comprises 55% of the land.

According to very up to date internal statistics, it is largely known by the government of Israel that the Negev is in danger. If we do not settle the Negev with Jews and Israelis at the speed of light we will lose most of it to Islam! The Bedouins, the nomadic tribes that have settled all the different deserts of the Middle East are fast becoming militant Muslims, are building mosques in the Negev and are squatting over large portions of Israel’s land claiming ownership. They are also reproducing very fast as there is no birth control among them. They are constantly attacking and robbing the already established Israeli farms and some framers are hanging on a thread almost ready to relinquish the land! Statistics predict that in about seven (7!) years from now the Negev may be predominantly Moslem. This would pose a very real threat to the existence of Israel and to cities such as Beersheba, Arad, Dimona and Eilat that would be completely cut off the rest of the country!

Yet YHVH said that the captives of Jerusalem that were in Sepharad (the Anusim!) will possess the cities of the Negev and not the Moslems!

The reason for this dangerous state of affairs is the reluctance of the Israeli government to receive the Anusim quickly without any need of conversion at all just like the Russian Jews were! There are many thousands of them that would be willing to come and make Alyah immediately if the doors of Israel were opened!

HEAR THE CRY OF THE ANUSIM!

For the sake of YHVH’s Prophetic Word to be fulfilled and the preservation of the Negev (55% of the land of Israel) as Israeli we must act and we must act quickly! Seven years is not a long time!

Can you hear the Cry of the Anusim?

Can you hear the Cry of the Negev?

Can you hear the Cry of YHVH?

Can you hear the Cry of Yeshua wanting to return?

He will only return after the Sephardic-Anusim return to their people and to their land and possess the cities of the Negev!

The deliverers will ascend Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the kingdom will be the YHVH’s. Obadiah 21

What are we assigned to do to hasten their return and the return of Messiah?

We are assigned to facilitate this End Time Move through:

  1. Prayer Towers in the Negev
  2. Publications to the nations
  3. Preparation of the Anusim teaching Jewish Roots, Jewish history and Hebrew
  4. Publicity to influence the Israeli government

 

PRAYER MOVES MOUNTAINS

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 NASB

The most urgent assignment is to establish THREE Prayer towers immediately in the Negev.

Only a committed Prophetic Prayer Movement will be able to release the full Exodus of the Anusim back home! Everything must be established in the spirit before it manifests in the natural! That is the order of Yah’s (God’s) Kingdom!

And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, ‘O mountains of Israel, hear the word of YHVH. Ezekiel 36:1 NASB

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 11:23 NASB

Our Prophetic Prayer/Praise Presence will halt the advance of Islam and will create a bridge for the return of the Anusim. It will move on the heart of the Israeli government because the hearts of kings is in the hand of YHVH!

The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of YHVH; He turns it wherever He wishes. Proverbs 21:1

We must establish a headquarters for the Ministry in Ashkelon, the North Gate of the Negev, another prayer Tower in Beersheba the Capital of the Negev (that was released from Moslem Turkey by the Anzacs in 1914) and we must establish firmly the already existing Prayer Tower in Eilat, the South Gate of the Negev. We have sowed spiritually into these three key locations but need to establish a solid and powerful prayer presence that will be like torrents in the wasteland, torrents of the Spirit!

AFIKIM BANEGEV PRAYER PROJECT

Restore our captivity, O YHVH, as the streams in the South (Afikim Banegev). Psalms 126:4 NASB

The Word for Streams or Torrents in the Negev is AFIKIM BANEGEV which also means inroads in the Negev, making a way where there seems to be no way.

The wilderness and the desert will be glad, and the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; like the crocus. And the ransomed of YHVH will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.  Isaiah 35:1 NASB

Can you hear the Cry of the Anusim for us to make AFIKIM BANEGEV and facilitate a way for them to return?

Turn to freedom our captivity and restore our fortunes, O YHVH, as the streams in the South (AFIKIM BANEGEV), are restored by the torrents (of prayer!). Psalms 126:4 AMP

This Friday night as we celebrate Passover let us declare:

LESHANA HABBA BYERUSHALAYM AND BANEGEV TO THE ANUSIM!

Next year in Jerusalem and the Negev for the Anusim!

A blessed Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread to all of you!

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent” Isaiah 62:1

As Expected – Land Day Turns Violent

Land Day turned violent Friday when Arabs began hurling Molotov cocktails and stones at soldiers near the Kalandia checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

The riots began after Friday afternoon Muslim prayers – often a starting point for violence – when dozens of masked Arab youths began rioting at the checkpoint.

Soldiers responded with teargas and deployed the “Skunk” – a vehicle loaded with canons spraying a noxious-smelling liquid. A machine that transmits high frequency sound waves was also employed.

Israel Radio reported several protesters were lightly injured in the clashes and taken to the hosptial. Hamas parliament member Ahmed Atoun was lightly injured when he was struck in the head by a stone hurled by the rioters.

A video uploaded to the IDF Spokesperson’s YouTube channel showed rioters in Bethlehem hurling stones and firebombs at an IDF watchtower.

Hundreds of Arabs gathered near the Nablus Gate in Jerusalem in an attempt to stage an illegal march, but were stopped by police. Numerous arrests were reported.

Some 200 people attended a parade marking Land Day in Kafr Kanna near Nazareth, where no violence was reported.

Meanwhile, Jordanian news sites reported some 20,000 people are gathering in order to take part in the massive march towards the Israeli border. According to reports, 4 rabbis from the extreme anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect were marching with them.

The stridently pro-Hizbullah Lebanese newspaper As-Safir reported 120 Hamas-provided buses will be transporting protesters to the Israeli border to participate in the “Global March on Jerusalem.”

Friday’s violence was widely expected by security officials who deployed on Thursday thousands of additional troops and police officers in anticipation of trouble.

Palestinian Authority enclaves in Judea and Samaria were also cordoned off.

IDF chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Israel Police commissioner Yochanan Danino on Friday personally toured potential hotspots to make first hand security assessments.

At least 15 people were killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers when they tried to cross the Syrian and Lebanese borders with Israel in May protests over Israel’s creation in 1948.

In June, Israeli troops killed 23 infiltrators who crossed into the no-man’s land between Israel and Syria as a part of violent protests against Israel’s presence in the Golan Heights since 1967.

Israelis find Jesus on Facebook

Israeli Messianic ministry One for Israel  continues to find success spreading the Gospel via online social networks and specialized Hebrew-language websites.

In its annual report, One for Israel again pointed out that Israelis are far more active on the Internet than average Westerners, making the online space a perfect, though often overlooked avenue for evangelism.

For example, One for Israel pointed to comScore statistics that revealed Israelis spend 11.1 hours per month on Facebook, more than double 5.7 hours spent by the average person worldwide. It was further noted that “overall a whopping 94 percent of Israeli Internet users are active on social networks.”

In order to reach all those Israeli Internet users, One for Israel takes out ads on Facebook, Google and other high-traffick websites. Those who click the ads are taken to a series of evangelism-focused Hebrew-language websites (like iGod.co.il) that seek to explain to the average non-believing Israeli why Jesus’ claims deserve consideration.

But the average Israeli is not well versed in the Bible, and certainly not in the prophecies that point to Jesus. So recently One for Israel launched a new website, TheOne.co.il (English version here), that takes a very simple and basic approach to the prophetic narrative, leading the viewer by the hand through the Bible’s messianic prescription to Israel’s woes.

These efforts continue to bear fruit.

One for Israel’s annual report spoke of several individuals who have personally contacted the ministry over the past year seeking greater knowledge of Jesus, including a high-ranking officer in the Israeli army. Additionally, the group’s evangelism-focused websites were visited over 150,000 times and Israelis downloaded a digital, Hebrew version of the New Testament ever five hours during 2011. Physical copies of the New Testament were requested more than once a day on average.

This is a persistent trend. Statistics provided by Google showed that Israelis searched (in Hebrew) for the name “Yeshua” (Jesus) more than 25,000 times every month. The phrase “Brit Hadasha” (New Testament) was searched for over 5,000 times every month.
