Israel faces existential economic threat, too!
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 )
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

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…
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 !
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
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.
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
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 !
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
