Shabbat Letter from
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!

Shabbat letter from
Come, my people, enter into your rooms and close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while until indignation runs its course. Isaiah 26:20
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved:
Throughout my years of ministry, many have asked me about the “rapture” or the catching away of the Bride. It seems to be a subject that intrigues many and for some it provokes great passions. The first time I encountered the subject was in 1990 – about two years after my radical conversion to Yeshua! I was at Christ for the Nations Bible School in Dallas, Texas and I had just woken up in the morning in order to go to class, however this was not a natural awakening but a supernatural awakening.
I woke up from the most vivid dream I had ever dreamt. In fact the last vision of this dream was still before me when I opened my eyes and this is how I know that this is called an “Open Vision” and not only a Prophetic Dream. The last vision of the dream was what people call the “Rapture” or the “Catching Up of the Bride.” Actually, my personal “Catching Up” experience.
Before I can share this dream with you, it is important that you know that I was not raised as a Christian. I am a Jew and every member of my family is Jewish throughout all our generations. I had no idea of the doctrine of the rapture and in 1990 I was a fairly new believer. I had heard some times Christians debating about whether the rapture will be pre tribulation, mid tribulation or post tribulation, but frankly, it did not interest me at all when the “rapture” would take place. From my point of view of a radical and passionate born again Jew, I just wanted to serve Messiah with all of my heart and whenever He wanted to come for me, I wanted to be ready to GO! This understanding accompanies me to this very day. We must be busy with Yah’s business and not spend our lives debating when He will come, though TIMING is very important. What good does it do to know all prophecies but to miss it altogether because we are not walking in love and obedience?
If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.1 Corinthians 13:2
It came like a play in three acts (like in the theatre) except it was like three visions within the dream.
Rabbi and I received an instruction from the Holy Spirit to build Him a high-tech Center in the Centre of Jerusalem to prepare Israel for the return of Messiah Yeshua. The name of the place would be Makor Niftach (The Open Source or Fountain) based on Zechariah 13:1
In that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity. Zechariah 13:1
The place would be highly computerized and I could see some high-tech devices I could not recognize. In fact I was extremely puzzled about this center because I did not even know how to use computers at that time (1990!) and the internet did not exist! I figured after the dream that it would be a very expensive venture to build something so fantastic! Of course today it is a “piece of cake!” I saw that it would have time line videos and prophetic videos and maps proving without a shadow of a doubt that Yeshua is the Messiah and that He is on His way to return soon to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).
Rabbi Baruch and I were travelling through many countries and churches where we shared on stage about Makor Niftach and the importance of this for the salvation of the Jewish People and Israel. We were raising funds for this project very fast and we succeeded to recruit all the money to start building it.
We had finished establishing the high-tech center. I could see the area in Jerusalem and the kind of building it was. Now I was alone (Rabbi was not with me anymore) and I was dusting the outer stones of the building (white lime stone or Jerusalem Stones). I was busy giving the building its last touches before opening when all of a sudden the Shofar-Trumpet sounded and I was instantly caught up to the skies! I was going up “at the speed of light” but then I was stopped in the midst of the skies and I heard the Archangel’s Voice announcing “Then the Great Tribulation Began.” Then I heard the voice of Yeshua instructing me to “look down”. I saw our building Makor Niftach in the midst of the City of Jerusalem. The Holy City was full of people! So full that it was hard to walk in the main street called Jaffa Road because of the mass of people walking there. It was a time of peace and prosperity and many were frequenting the City! I also saw a great chaos right after I was taken up and a group of young beautiful teenage boys with back packs on who had their hands lifted up and their faces were radiant (144.000?). They were the only ones that were worshipping YHVH and discerned what had happened. The others were in utter chaos. In the midst of it all our High Tech Center was standing ready to give answers to all who would inquire.
Proclaim the Rapture
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:17,18
When I woke up, the last picture was still vivid and I could see every detail from it with open eyes! At that time I used to play the tambourine according to worship patterns I had learnt at CFNI. However Yeshua gave me instantly a new pattern called “Proclaim the Rapture”. The Tambourine pattern was in two stages implying that there would be TWO raptures. One before the Great Tribulation and one immediately before Yeshua plants His feet in the Mount of Olives.
In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the North and the other half toward the South. You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him! Zechariah 14:4,5
That morning I went to class as usual pondering all the way what this all meant. In the afternoon I went to work at the Gym of the Bible School where I decided to share my dream with some other students. I can only remember that the very fact that in my dream the Archangel said “Now the Great Tribulation Began” which meant that the Great Tribulation would be after the rapture caused a stir and a heated debate! One of the students was ready to beat me, I think! Wow! Had I known that the Christians were so “touchy” about it I would have not shared my dream with them!
Since that dream I had known that the Rapture is a true doctrine and that the Great Tribulation, which is the wrath of God poured out, would happen after it. I also understood that not everyone was going up and that some may have to endure the Great Tribulation which is the wrath of Elohim on the nations – maybe be martyred through it and pay a great price. Many in Israel would get saved during that period and our high-tech center was ready to assist in their salvation and preparation for the return of Messiah. After all Israel is saved and after the Millennial Reign of Messiah, it will join the rest of the Bride and the New Jerusalem and Old Jerusalem will unite.
For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written. Romans 11:25,26
And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them. Revelation 21:2,3
I also understood that we must be busy about Abba’s business all the way to the end or else we will not be ready and that our End Time Mandate is to prepare Israel for the return of Messiah. Since we had to raise funds from churches in the nations for this very important project, it showed us that the Father was calling the church to cooperate financially with us to make this project happen for the sake of Israel. It would be their opportunity to repay a debt!
Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them (to the Jews). For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things. Romans 15:27
I want to mention a few raptures of people that were taken up by YHVH while they were alive in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures so we realize that this doctrine is not a New Testament Doctrine, it is a Biblical Doctrine all the way from Bereshit (Genesis).
Enoch walked with Elohim; and he was not, for Elohim took him. Genesis 5:24
So Moses the servant of YHVH died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of YHVH . And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor; but no man knows his burial place to this day. Deuteronomy 34:5,6
I believe that Moses was caught up for the reason that his burial place was not found. In fact, he appeared together with Elijah to Yeshua on the Mount of Transfiguration in the Golan Heights so that means that he is alive just like Elijah who was Caught Up! (Matthew 17)
As they were going along and talking, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven. 2 Kings 2:11
THE TWO RAPTURES
Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Matthew 24:40
It is also in YHVH’s nature and style to remove those that are faithful to Him by Covenant from the wrath to come like in the case of Lot. Because he was Abraham’s nephew and Abraham was a friend of the Almighty, the angels went to bail him and his family out of Sodom and Gomorrah. I have no doubt that when YHVH pours out His wrath on the nations, He will hide His own! This hiding place is UP somewhere because when Yeshua returns and plants His feet on the Mount of Olives, He will gather His saints from the FOUR WINDS and from the SKY. That means that they are in the Sky since what I will call the First Rapture. (They are not raised from the dead as they were caught up ALIVE in body like I was in the dream, like Enoch, Moses and Elijah.)
And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. Matthew 24:30,31
I believe that some will be caught up BEFORE the Great Tribulation while others will be caught up right before Messiah lands on the Mount of Olives as He gathers His Chosen Ones both from the earth (that went through the Great Tribulation) and from the skies (that were raptured before the Great Tribulation). This is what I would call the Second Rapture.
Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven. Mark 13:26,27
NOT EVERYONE WILL BE CAUGHT UP
The Bible is clear that some will not be ready.
And while they were going away to make the purchase (of oil), the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. Matthew 25:10
How do we buy oil? We must pay the price to stay anointed all the days of our life on earth. Religion will not do! We must know Him intimately and walk in Truth and Obedience!
YHVH showed me that one of the most important issues in order to stay in the flow of His Spirit is to walk in Truth but in Love. That is why it is so important to repent from all Replacement Theology that has held the Church captive for so long to the lies and doctrines of Constantine through the Council of Nicea. It is very important to return to the Biblical Apostolic Hebrew Foundations of Faith and to reject the doctrines of demons and men that have the Bride in so much pagan mixture. One of the issues the Spirit showed me is that His Bride will love His Holy Name Yeshua, which His eternal name forever.
For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, So that they will be mentioned by their names no more. Hosea 2:17
It is very important to be restored to the original Gospel “made in Zion” not in Rome, Babylon or New York but the one that the Jewish Apostles preached that included radical obedience, holiness and miraculous power!
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
Last but not least, we must be cooperating with the Father on the issue that is most urgent in His Heart, namely the Restoration of Israel. That is why the last thing that I was doing in my dream before being Caught Up is making sure that Israel can get the Message of Salvation.
We invite you to be busy with us and to partner with us in the restoration of Israel and the salvation of the nations until He comes!

WORD FOR 2013
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. Acts 3:19
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!
Many people start the Gregorian Calendar New Year with what they call “new year’s resolutions”. For the most part they revolve around improving some problem areas such as weight loss or quitting smoking etc. Most of these resolutions remain as “wishfull thinking” as most people cannot carry them through! They are a vain attempt of the flesh to “improve itself” without Repentance- Teshuva which brings about a true Revolution in the way we THINK and ACT.
It is very interesting that the Pagan Calendar Year starting in January and ending in December is celebrated from midnight on and not from sunset as the Bblical Day goes. It is also interested that most people party until the wee hours of the morning and get drunk a lot, all that on top of the famous “resolutions” to be a better person next year! People everywhere are hoping for New Beginnings and yes YHVH is a God of new beginnings and second opportunities but they come as a fruit of Teshuva-Repentance and not human resolutions!
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
What is the difference between a Resolution and a Repentance induced Revolution? In the first the source of it is the flesh and on the second one it is the spirit. The first one depends on human self effort and the second one depends on Elohim-God and His Mercy and ability to change us. The first one is a total failure and the second one is an eternal success. The first one is rooted in pride and self confidence and the second one is rooted in humility, faith and trust in a loving Creator that cares about us.
Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
TESHUVA in Hebrew means to Repent, to Return (to Yah’s ways) and to be Restored. It is only His goodness that leads us into Teshuva-Repentance. It starts with humilty and prayer, fasting and prayer which in turn releases grace to change our ways and forgiveness in order to have a fresh new start. When we celebrate Rosh Chodesh and Rosh Hashana (New month and New Year) according to the Hebrew Biblical Calendar, the shofar is blown calling the people to Teshuva. In the Biblical Culture there ae two times a year when we celebrate the “New Year”. The first one is on the FIRST Biblical month, the month of Abib (Nissan) or the month of Pessach (Passover). Since it is the first of the months, it is Rosh Chodesh celebrations calling us to return to YHVH and through that to receive FREEDOM and Deliverance!
On this day in the month of Abib, you are about to go forth. Exodus 13:4
The second “New Year” is the Feast of Shofars (Trumpets) on the first of the Seventh Biblical Month (Tishrei) where the whole theme is Teshuva leading to the Fast of Yom Hakippurim or the Day of Atonement.
Both New Year celebrations are totally Biblical and focus on seeking the God of Abraham, Isaac and Yaakov and His Kingdom and not oneself. These Biblical New Year celebrations are not accompanied by disco bar parties with lots of alcohol and vain resolutions but rather by prayer services, public and private repentance and worship in spirit and truth. How far and different are these Biblically oriented celebrations from the pagan New Year where the center of it all is man and his/her resolutions!
Both in the Biblical New Year for Agriculture and Feast Cycle (First of Abib normally in March) and on the Jewish New Year for civilian affairs which falls on Feast of Shofars called Rosh Hashana the focus is WORSHIP to YHVH, He is the Center and we revolve around Him. When He is the focus and the center of our life and celebrations, we can truly enjoy a revolution!
An important question to ask is this one: When Yeshua returns to rule and reign from Jerusalem will we He be following the Hebrew Biblical Calendar or the Gregorian pagan calendar that is rooted in sun worship? The Word of Elohim tells us clearly that He will actually not return until ALL things are restored and that includes Holy Worship and the Biblical Feast Calendar.
This is so clear in Zechariah 14:16 when His Word states that ALL the nations will have to come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Biblical Feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles) and that the nation that does not come will have no blessing, no rain. Nations are commanded to celebrate Biblical Feasts not Christmas or Easter or New Year’s Eve!
Because of the ignorance He has had mercy on nations but once He establishes the Millenial Reign they will have no choice but to choose the Biblical Hebrew Calendar. After all why would Greek-Roman-Babylonian traditions have more influence and power in the nations and especially in the Church than Hebrew Biblical traditions or actually COMMANDMENTS? It is because the spirit of Anti Messiah (AntiChrist) has been ruling since the Council of Nicea established Replaceemnt Theology as Church Doctrine! But the Command for 2013 is Repent and Return to the Biblical Hebrew Foundations of Faith that times of refreshing and REVIVAL will come from the Presence of YHVH!
In order to assist you in making the turn and entering into Revival we have produced a one of a kind video Bible School called GRM that you can order through http://www.kad-esh.org press on Bible School. It will help you immensely as it is helping many around the Globe! Then your New Year Resolutions will turn into The MAP Revolution, the Messianic Apostolic Prophetic Revolution and you will be able to enjoy a New Beginning like never before! Many people that have experienced the change that Teshuva-Repentance towards the original Hebrew Foundations of Faith as in the Book of Acts state that they feel “born again again!”. That is true REVIVAL!
I encourage to study GRM and start celebrating the Biblical Feasts rather than following the pagan feast calendar! After all it is His Word that is established in Heaven and not our traditions!
“Do not quench the Spirit’s Fire” 1 Thessalonians 5:19
Your Friends and Mentors in Israel,
Bishop Dominiquae and Rabbi Baruch Bierman
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, 7 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, 8 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. 2 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
