December 15th, 2017 via Intercessors for Israel

  1. Praise: We are in the middle of the feast of Dedication/Chanukah, so the prophetic portion for this Shabbat is Zechariah 2:10-4:7.
    • Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion. For behold, I come, and I will dwell in your midst, says YHWH. And many gentiles shall be joined to YHWH in that day, and shall be My people. I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that YHWH of Hosts has sent Me to you. And YHWH shall possess Judah, His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. Be silent, all flesh, before YHWH; for He has risen out of His holy dwelling place.

      Zechariah 2:10-13

    • This is the Word of YHWH to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says YHWH of Hosts. Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain; and he shall bring forth the top stone with shoutings, Grace! Grace to it!

      Zechariah 4:6b-7

    • Thank You that we see today how many gentiles are joined with Jews in Yeshua (Romans 1:16).
    • You are God and what You say You will do – You do (Numbers 23:19).
    • We bless You for all Your precious promises upon which we can rest as we run the race set before us (2 Peter 1:4; Hebrews 12:1-2).
    • God of grace and mercy – we thank You for all that You gift us with (Ephesians 2:8).
    • In the light of US President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem and all the craziness surrounding that, we are encouraged by this verse from Shabbat’s prophetic portion: And YHWH said to Satan, YHWH rebuke you, Satan! YHWH who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! (Zechariah 3:2)
    • Yeshua, You are the Light of the world who has given us light (Psalm 36:9; John 1:9)
  2. Security: For Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.
    • I, says YHWH, will be to her a wall of fire all around, and the glory in her midst.

      Zechariah 2:5

    • This is Your city (Psalm 48:8). Arise and protect it for Your name’s sake (Isaiah 37:35).
    • Continue to bless and use all Israel’s security forces in defending this nation (Isaiah 41:10-16).
    • Help them to co-labor with You, because You say in Psalm 127:1b, unless YHWH keeps the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. We thank You that You do watch over this city/nation (Psalm 121:4).
    • As birds flying, so YHWH of Hosts will defend Jerusalem; also defending, He will deliver it; and passing over He will preserve it.

      Isaiah 31:5

      Amen!

    • Keep all of us who live in Jerusalem alert and aware of their surroundings.
    • Totally confuse all those who are planning to attack this city and its people (Psalm 35:26).
    • Thank You that most of the demonstrations against the Trump recognition of Jerusalem as being Israel’s capital have not been very large or impactful (Proverbs 22:8).
    • Abba, hinder all media induced riots, as the rioting is too often encouraged by media coverage.
    • Lord, to those who say, Let us take possession for ourselves of the houses of God, we ask that you make their words of incitement like a wheel; like the stubble before the wind. (Psalms 83:12-13)
  3. Security: The relative calm that has existed in the south of Israel since 2014 has been broken. Missiles have been shot from Gaza towards the Israeli communities there. Hamas says this is because of Trump’s Jerusalem recognition. No Israelis have been killed or physically injured, although the emotional and mental anguish resulting from this should not be ignored. Israel needs to know how to respond.
    • Lord, these attacks against Israel are not Trump’s fault. Do not allow our family in Messiah Yeshua to be deceived by excuses from Islamic terrorists who really need no excuse to kill Jews – or Christians!
    • Since Hamas is celebrating its 30th anniversary by stirring up hatred against Israel, make this their last celebration. Destroy, O YHWH, and divide their tongues; for I have seen violence and fighting in the city. (Psalms 55:9)
    • Confound all the various terrorist groups in Gaza and set them against one another (Psalm 129:5).
    • Enable Defense Minister Liberman and all the IDF command staff to defend this nation with great strength and courage (2 Chronicles 32:7).
    • Reveal all remaining terror tunnels and allow the IDF to destroy each one of them (Job 12:22).
    • Prevent all kidnapping attempts from succeeding (Proverbs 19:21).
    • Bring an increased alertness to the soldiers who are assigned to the Gaza area (Psalm 44:5).
    • Do not allow the mixed – male/female – combat units to be distracted by the opposite sex.
    • Protect and comfort Israelis living within range of Gaza’s terrorists’ activities (Psalm 121:3-4).
  4. Security: We then prayed for Israel’s internal security situation. There is a radical minority of Israeli Arabs who are enemies of the state. This includes most Arab Knesset – parliament – members. Also, Israel needs to deal with the Palestinians who have been stirred up by their leaders.
    • Lord, deal with this radical minority so that they will not end up ruling over the majority of Israeli Arabs who prefer to live in Israel than any other nation in this region (Jeremiah 12:14-17).
    • Let them be humbled and put to shame who seek after my soul; let them be turned back and be brought to shame who plot evil to me. Let them be as chaff before the wind; and let the Angel of YHWH drive them away. Let their way be dark and slippery; and let the Angel of YHWH pursue them. For without cause they have spread their net for me in a pit…Let destruction come upon him, he will not know; and let his net which he has concealed catch him, let him fall in it, into destruction.

      Psalms 35:4-8

    • We bless our enemies, and ask that You cause all their demonic plans to fail so that they understand that Allah is not God (Matthew 5:44; Psalm 83:16).
    • Give wisdom and courage to Israel Arabs to vote for Knesset members whose concern for them will be greater than their hatred towards Israel and its Jews (Romans 13:1-4; 1st Timothy 2:1-4).
    • Protect all Israeli security forces at all the check points and the bus and train stations (Jeremiah 31:10).
    • Uncover all plots that try to bring harm to Israelis or tourists (Ecclesiastes 3:18).
    • Deal with the unscrupulous media who always finds a way to blame Israel when it defends itself.
    • Thank You for the Christian and Muslim Israelis who do stand up for Israel openly. Bless and protect them and all their families (Genesis 12:3a).
  5. Security: The situation along Israel’s Lebanon and Syrian borders is still fraught with danger.
    • As Israeli leaders make decisions to protect this nation – show them to be more concerned about Your approval that man’s. It is better to trust in YHWH than to trust in man. It is better to trust in YHWH than to trust in princes. (Psalms 118:8-9)
    • Lord of hosts, impart Your wisdom to Israelis who are responsible for dealing with the enemies who are now encamped alongside Israelis borders (2nd Samuel 5:24).
    • Abba, You hear Hizbullah head Nasrallah’s blasphemous words against Your land and people. Is it not time to show him that You are God (Psalm 10:4-12; 68:1, 30)!
    • As he is threatening to turn his terrorists against Israel at this time, give Israel courage to pre-empt as and when needed (Ecclesiastes 8:11).
    • We praise You that Israel has been doing that with weapon transfers between Hizbullah and Iran. If need be, may Israel increase its attacks in this area.
    • Thank You also that Russia entrenched in Syrian has not stood against Israel’s red lines.
    • Arise YHWH; let not man prevail. Let the nations be judged in Your sight. Put them in fear YHWH, let the nations know they are but men. Selah.

      Psalms 9:19-20

  6. Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu is being questioned again today. Another leak from these sessions said that the police want to incriminate Bibi for both the cases they are investigating him for. Also, there is the daily cares of being Israel’s leader that he deals with. He needs our prayers.
    • Abba, have mercy on Bibi and his wife Sara and their sons (Lamentations 3:22-23).
    • May the truth come forth and may these investigations be resolved speedily (Psalm 43:3).
    • Lord God, arise and rebuke any and all satanic attacks against this man (Zechariah 3:2).
    • Deal with all those who are illegally leaking what is happening behind closed doors (Psalm 57:3).
    • Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. (Psalms 85:10) May this be true in these accusations against Netanyahu and his family.
    • Thank You for all Netanyahu has done up to now as Israel’s leader.
    • If You have allowed the pressure to increase on Netanyahu because of his seemingly servile relationship with Trump, show him and may this lopsided relationship be broken (Jeremiah 17:5).
    • Remind him that he is Israel’s Prime Minister – and not the Governor of another American State.
    • Give Bibi the same backbone to deal with Trump that he has in dealing with Russia’s Putin (Isaiah 50:7).
    • Lord, prepare whomever it is that will eventually follow Netanyahu as Israel’s leader – and if You would be gracious to reveal Your choice to us, we will pray for them (Amos 3:7).
  7. American Vice-President Mike Pence, a strong Christian-Zionist, will be visiting Israel and other nations in our region this next week. As many leaders in the Middle East, including Palestinian Pres. Abbas, are refusing to meet him because of Trump’s Jerusalem recognition, this is a great time to pray for the anti-biblical land-for-peace process die a real death.
    • Lord, we thank You for placing Pence, Your son, in a high position of influence. Use him for Your glory’s sake here in Israel (Psalm 115:1-3).
    • Anoint him to be an encourager to Netanyahu and to be able to hear what Bibi says (Proverbs 17:17).
    • Protect Pence from all assassination attempts (Psalm 119:114).
    • Thank You for continuing to harden the hearts of Israel’s enemies so that Your land cannot be divided any further (Leviticus 25:23; Romans 9:14-23).
    • Let the boycott of Pence be taken by Trump as a personal affront and use this to open Trump’s eyes to the type of people with whom Israel is being asked to make peace (Psalm 55:21).
    • Abba God, how much longer? Use this Pence boycott to kill this peace process (Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11).
  8. As we are in the midst of Chanukah, we prayed for the true Light of the world, Yeshua the Messiah, to shine ever more brightly in the hearts of His still chosen people (Romans 11:28). Please join in and pray for the salvation of many Jews at this very time. Pray as specifically as you can, whether for individuals you know or for specific groups. And remember, we are asking God to save them – so that through them He can be glorified!
  9. We ended by continuing to pray for water. Israel desperately needs the rains in heavy amounts in the right places. Continue to join us in this request as well.

May the Light of the world, the Messiah Yeshua, shine even more brightly in and through you during these days. We are so grateful to God for you – our extended family – who stand with us on Jerusalem’s walls, asking for His kingdom to come and His will to be done here in Zion unto the ends of the earth.

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of YHWH,

as the waters cover the sea.

Habakkuk 2:14

Shabbat shalom and Chanukat sameach

Christine Darg,

Jerusalem Channel

It’s been exactly a century since the British Entrance to Jerusalem.

Under bright sunshine, Israel is honoring the capture and surrender of Jerusalem exactly 100 years ago today. On 11 Dec 1917, British General Edmund Alleby led an Allied Christian army through Jaffa Gate into the Old City to accept the surrender. After battles all the way from Gaza and Beersheba, the Allies conquered  Jerusalem without a shot being fired. Jerusalem had been under Muslim domination for 673 years.

Here at Jerusalem’s historic Jaffa Gate, we’re in a time warp as Israeli actors re-enact the surrender of the holy city  in a colourful ceremony.

Throughout its history, the city of Jerusalem has known many historical and great moments.

Some of those moments have become legendary. One such legendary moment is when General Edmund Allenby walked from the Jaffa Gate to the Tower of David Citadel during the afternoon of December 11, 1917.

“A Hanukah Miracle” and “a Christmas Present” are just two of the many titles given to the historical event in which the Ottomans, the city’s rulers for 400 years, were defeated by the British Empire, which crossed the country’s borders in the fall of 1917.

Jerusalem, the city holy for Jews, Christians, and Muslims, now had a new government.

“The General and Gentleman – Allenby at the Gates of Jerusalem” exhibition opens today at the Tower of David Museum, exactly one hundred years after the historic event.

The exhibition tracks the dramatic events that unfolded in just one week, a week that marked the beginning of a new and fascinating era in the history of Jerusalem, the Jewish Yishuv, and the entire Land of Israel.

Exhibition opens today at Jerusalem’s Tower of David Museum

At the ceremonies today, the Jerusalem Channel’s Christine Darg says to “General Allenby,” wait for me! I’m coming along 100 years later!

December 8th, 2017 via Intercessors for Israel

 

  1. This week’s prophetic portion concludes with Amos 3:1-8, and there are some truths in that which encouraged our praise – and a healthy dose of the fear of the God of Israel – this morning.
    • Hear this Word that YHWH has spoken against you, sons of Israel…You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities [cp. Luke 12:48]. Can two walk together unless they are agreed? …If a ram’s horn is blown in a city, will the people not also tremble? If there is a calamity in a city, has YHWH not also done it? For the Lord YHWH will do nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord YHWH has spoken; who will not prophesy?

      Amos 3:1-8

    • We bless You that what You say is so consistent throughout Your Word (Numbers 23:19).
    • You do not change and Your Word stands forever (Psalm 119:89).
    • Thank You for being totally sovereign – even if at times we just cannot see it (Revelation 17:17).
    • Thank You for sovereignly choosing us (John 15:16).
    • We praise You for watching over Your Word to do it (Jeremiah 1:11-12).
    • Ah, Lord YHWH! You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and stretched out arm. Nothing is too great for You… Behold, I am YHWH, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?

      Jeremiah 32:17, 27

  2. US President Trump’s declaration this past week that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital is an answer to prayer and – for those with open eyes – a signal for more prayer about the possible results.
    1. We prayed for the peace of Jerusalem – focusing especially on the “day of rage” ‘response coming from the Islamic spirit in the Palestinians.
      • This is Your city, and while it was good to hear Trump’s declaration, what You say in Your Word is the truth we trust in. Great is YHWH, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness. Beautiful on high, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. (Psalms 48:1-2)
      • Lord, watch over Your city at this time and do not allow the enemy to have its way (Psalm 121:4).
      • We do pray for Jerusalem’s peace – in both the security and spiritual realm (Psalm 122:6).
      • Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem. (Psalms 51:18) We ask for Your security walls to surround this city – both now and in the future.
      • As birds flying, so YHWH of Hosts will defend Jerusalem; defending, He will deliver it; and passing over He will preserve it. (Isaiah 31:5) Amen and amen!
      • Lord, unless You defend this city, all that Israel’s security forces do will be in vain (Psalm 127:1b).
      • And since You do defend Jerusalem, please place all security personnel in exactly the right place at the right time to be those warrior-guardians You have raised them up to be (Ezekiel 37:10).
      • Give the security forces discernment to know who the “bad guys” are and who are innocent.
      • Pour out Your fear upon any Muslims who are planning to kill Israelis (Exodus 23:27).
      • Shout the mouths of those media outlets who only look for huge headlines and end up exaggerating that which is in reality a small issue (Jeremiah 9:3-5).
      • Use the fear that some Israelis have of the possible consequences of what Trump said to cause them to cry out to You (Psalm 50:15).
      • Lord Yeshua, precious Prince of Peace – send Your peace into many Israelis’ hearts (Isaiah 9:6-7).
      • As US Vice-President Mike Pence travels to Israel and other nations in this region, please protect and use this Christian Zionist for Your glory (Psalm 115:1-3).
    2. We are concerned of what might be asked of Israel as “payment” for this declaration. Trump comes from the business world and still wants to see the “ultimate deal” of an Israeli-Arab-Palestinian peace, so we must pray for Israel to not compromise on any essential issues.
      • Lord, cut off all demands from America that are not in line with Your will (Psalm 33:10-11).
      • Keep those in the administration who were against this in the first place from placing unreasonable demands from Israel into Trump’s heart (Proverbs 21:1).
      • Give courage to the believers who are in his inner circle to remind Trump that by blessing Israel, America is blessed and warning him to not spoil that with any quid-pro-quo demands (Numbers 24:9b).
      • While we understand why Israel’s PM Bibi Netanyahu was so excited about this and seems to take Trump’s opinion into account in almost every decision he makes – remind him that he is the leader of Israel and not just a governor of another American state (Joshua 1:6-9).
      • Give courage to Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders to reject all dangerous and unbiblical demands.
      • Give grace so that both Bibi and Donald walk in agreement with You (Amos 3:3).
  3. The Palestinian leader Abbas threatened that if Trump did what he did, then the peace process was dead. Hallelujah! So we prayed that for once, what Abbas said he would do – he actually did.
    • Lord, how long will this demonic peace process threaten Your land and nation (Ecclesiastes 3:8)?
    • Take advantage of the rage among the Palestinians to kill this land-for-peace process once and for all.
    • I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

      Psalms 120:7

    • Expose Abbas for who he really is – a Holocaust denier, master terrorist, and anti-Semite (John 3:20).
    • As the Palestinians continue to riot in Israel – use this to wake up Israelis to the truth that there is no real peace partner on the other side (Psalm 55:21).
    • Encourage all intercessors to pray in line with Your Word on this issue and not be deceived by the nice words of “peace” and “love” that tend to muddle the thoughts of too many in the Body.
    • And Yeshua [said], Beware that no one deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I AM, and shall deceive many.

      Mark 13:5-6; cp. Jeremiah 9:5; 29:8; Romans 16:18; Ephesians 5:6

  4. We do thank you for continuing to pray with us for Israel’s security. For all Israel to be saved, they must be alive, so that this prayer burden has a kingdom goal as well as an earthly goal.
    • Lord, we bless You that Israel has declared its red lines and then backed them up with military action. Continue to give Israeli leaders the courage to do this (2 Chronicles 32:7).
    • Forbid that this Jerusalem declaration in any way distracts Israel’s leaders from any security issues.
    • Create a great unity between Netanyahu, Defense Minister Liberman and IDF Chief of Staff Eisenkot.
    • Abba, as per Your threat to break the bow of Elam (Jeremiah 49:35) – where modern Iran sits – we ask You to apply this to the Shi’ite Crescent Iran is establishing Tehran to the Mediterranean Sea (49:37-38).
    • Since the Shi’ites delight in war, we ask You to “scatter” them as per Psalm 68:30.
    • Speak to Russian leader Putin to understand it is better to side with Israel than Iran (Exodus 32:26).
    • Yet do not allow Putin to use Israel for Russian purposes.
    • Bring to Israeli intelligence services accurate actionable intelligence and the wisdom to know with whom this information should be shared (Matthew 10:27).
    • Lord of hosts, assign to all of Israel’s borders a huge host of huge angels – for Your glory (Malachi 1:5)!
    • Pour out a spirit of alertness on all IDF soldiers – especially during the winter season (Proverbs 6:9).
    • Abba God, expose all terror tunnels – today (Job 12:22; Psalm 139:12).
    • Thank You for the advances Israel has made in cyberwarfare. Make this nation the cyberwarfare superpower in today’s world (Deuteronomy 26:19; 28:1).
    • But YHWH is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

      Psalms 94:22; cp. 62:2, 6

    • And YHWH will create over all the site of Mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for on all the glory shall be a defense.

      Isaiah 4:5

  5. We then prayed for the Church to wake up and get serious with the things that God is doing in today’s world to wrap up the age.
    • We do thank You for the Israeli Body of Messiah that is alive in Israel today (Isaiah 2:3b).
    • Protect it from false prophets, false teachers and wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 7:15-16).
    • Mature Christian Zionists beyond the basic understanding of blessing Israel so that they can be blessed, unto the stage to where whatever they do in relation to Israel is for You (Colossians 3:17).
    • Why are church leaders in the nations of the world, whose political leaders are rebuking Trump for agreeing with biblical truth that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, not also speaking truth? (Zechariah 8:16).
    • Reveal Your heart towards Israel to the Chinese and Iranian Churches and let them see that what You are doing in restoring this nation to its land – is with all of Your heart and soul (Jeremiah 32:41).
    • Move among Arabic speaking churches to have Your heart for the Jews and Israel (Deuteronomy 7:8).
    • Use the African churches throughout the West to provoke Western Christians with a love for the Bible, a renewed love for the Lord Yeshua and a biblical revelation of Israel.
    • Rebuke and remove all elders who do not honor Your Word and Son above all else (Ezekiel 34:1-10).
    • This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation; we confess we need a new one (Psalm 51:12).
    • Return us to You, O YHWH, and we will turn; renew our days as of old,

      Lamentations 5:21

  6. Water
    • We do thank You for the wonderful rainfall we received in Israel this past week (Psalm 68:9).
    • Lord, we need much more and are asking You for rain to fall in all the right places (Zechariah 10:1).
    • Please release the hail and snow that are stored by You for a time of trouble (Job 38:22-23).
    • We are still trusting and asking You to fill up the Sea of Galilee by the time Israel’s rainy season is over.
    • You do watch over this land. Please provide it with all the water it needs (Deuteronomy 11:11).
  7. We next prayed for spiritual water to be poured out on the Jewish people over Chanukah – which starts this coming Tuesday evening.
    • Thank You for the Chanukah victory of the sons of Zion over the sons of Greece (Zechariah 9:13).
    • As the Chanukiah – the Chanukah eight branched menorah – is lit, and its light increases over the feast, may the true Light of the World, Messiah Yeshua, also increase in many Jewish hearts (John 1:9; 12:46).
    • For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we shall see light.

      Psalms 36:9

    • Lord, watch over and give a huge harvest of all the seeds we planted and watered (1 Corinthians 3:6).
    • Continue to grace us to be lights representing You to all we meet (Matthew 5:14-16).
    • You said Your sheep hear Your voice (John 10:27). We know that that is true and trust You to guide us in paths of righteous ness for Your name’s sake (Psalm 23:3).
    • Chanukah is a time of miracles, so please save Your people, the remnant of Israel (Jeremiah 31:7b).
    • Pour out that gift of repentance that all need in order to come to You (Ephesians 2:8-10).
  8. We ended by asking God to bring His people home – aliyah.
    • Lord Yeshua, open the eyes of the Church to see that helping Your people return to Zion is an essential part of what You are doing in preparation for Your soon return (Psalm 102:16).
    • Let more believers give financially to help Jewish families return and get settled (Isaiah 60:5, 11).
    • As Jews celebrate Chanukah in exile, make them truly homesick for Israel (Isaiah 62:4-5).
    • How shall we sing YHWH’s song in a foreign land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget. If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth; if I do not prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.

      Psalms 137:4-6

    • Lord, over Chanukah, let Trump release Jonathan Pollard to come home to Israel (Matthew 27:15).
    • Enable Jews in non-Western locations to come home– from Ethiopian, India, China, etc. (Isaiah 43:5-7).
    • Help all Jews who are searching for documentation to prove their Jewish heritage to find it.
    • Bless all organizations, both Christian and Jewish, whose goal is help gather the scattered children of Israel. Bless them with all the finances and workers they need to fulfill their tasks (Philippians 4:19).

Concerning President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an Arab friend wrote in frustration:

Balfour Declaration of 1917 and Trump Declaration of 2017

Similar words also came from the mouth of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“There are great moments in the history of Zionism: the Balfour Declaration, the establishment of the state, the liberation of Jerusalem, and yesterday – the Trump Declaration,” Netanyahu said. “I told him ‘My friend, Mr. President, you are about to make history’, and yesterday he made history.”

Many are wondering about the timing of the decision, but Trump was encouraged by Pastor John Hagee, Governor Mike Huckabee and others to be sure to make the move within the Jubilee Year of 2017.

I also recalled the above black and white illustration that compared Britain’s Gen. Edmund Allenby’s capture of Jerusalem to the victory of the Jewish Macabees.

In fact, due to the timing of Trump’s announcement, the illustration is making the rounds on the Internet:

“This is amazing because what Trump has just done comes almost exactly 100 years from that moment you witness above (in the black and white Hannukah illustration),” commented Chris Moore, compiler of the Chrisifiles news service.

“From 1897, the first International Zionist Congress–where it all began— 50 years later–Jubilee– came the UN Vote for Israel; go forward 70 Years—2017.  The Bible is clear about the significance of the number 70 to do with Israel’s and Jerusalem’s captivity period and Daniel’s prophetic years.

“Then from 1917 to 1967—50 year- forward 50 more years to Trump’s announcement now 2017.”

President Trump Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital (White House screenshot)

US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) also gave quite a summary, saying, “I enthusiastically commend President Trump for today’s courageous and heroic decision. Roughly 120 years since a pioneer of the Zionist movement, Theodore Herzl, convened the first Zionist Congress in Basel, 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem during the Six Day War, and nearly 70 years after the United States was the first country to give recognition to the modern State of Israel, the President of the United States has for the first time formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This day will forever be etched in the history books as one of the great moments in history. The strongest and most prosperous country in the world has rectified what has been a historic injustice for far too long, recognizing the ancient and sacred city that has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years, and the capital of the one and only Jewish State since 1948. This announcement recognizes the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and sends a powerful message that rejects all those who wrongly seek to delegitimize Israel through falsifying and erasing the profound ties that exist between the Jewish people and Jerusalem.”

Many Bible students and prophets have been comparing the 45th President, Donald J. Trump, to Cyrus the Great, the gentile ruler referred to in Isaiah 45, the only non-Jewish figure in the Bible as an “anointed one.” Cyrus respected the customs and religions of the lands he conquered. The Edict of Cyrus is part the biblical narrative about the Jews’ return to the land of Israel from Babylonian captivity.

Eschatologists are also pointing out that it was been 120 years since the first Zionist Congress in 1897 and 2017—the period of grace allotted by God in Noah’s day.

In his speech from the White House, Trump simply said,“Today I am delivering” the promise that his precedessors had also made. . . but failed to deliver.

Journalist Jack Engelhard wrote in Israel National News, “Indeed, mark Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 1 p.m., as a date that will live in glory between the two great powers of Liberty; the United States and Israel…owed largely through the grit and courage of this singular president, Donald Trump.”

The following quote is from an article written by “One  For Israel” with the headline “Jerusalem, 1917 AS FORETOLD IN THE BIBLE:”

Is it a coincidence that the Muslim authorities raised a white flag in Jerusalem, the city that God calls “Mine”? Jerusalem on the 24th of Kislev, (Dec. 9, 1917) was liberated, ending Islamic rule.

Moreover, even further back than Haggai, Daniel 12:12 also prophesied that there would be blessing for Jerusalem after “1335 days.” As one of the British officers was amazed to realize, the Islamic year in 1917 was 1335, since the Muslim (lunar) calendar started in 622. Keen observers of prophecy such as Dr. H. Aldersmith had already put the pieces together, and were expecting redemption and blessing for Jerusalem in 1917. The 1335 years were up. “Blessed is he,” writes Daniel, “who waits and arrives at 1,335 days.”

After 1335 years of Islam, the city of Jerusalem was delivered by the British using airplanes that “hovered like birds” on 24th Kislev in 1917.

‘WE’VE BEEN LIVING IN A DELUSION–‘Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a good move that aids the pursuit of peace, does not concern America’s closest Arab allies and tells the world the president will do what he says he will do.

Bolton said the president’s action was simply a confirmation of reality.

“We’ve been living in a delusion by not acknowledging the fact that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” said Bolton. “Israel is probably the only country in the world where the American embassy is not in the capital city of the country to which our diplomats are accredited. What Trump did was nothing more or nothing less than making Israel the same as every other country where we’ve got an ambassador.”

Bolton said that in the seven decades of the modern Israeli state, it’s clear where the center of government is. But he added that Trump left room open for the Palestinians to still get some of what they want.

The Jerusalem Channel, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) and other Bible-based organizations welcome the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as stated in the Bible.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to praise the action in a televised speech in Jerusalem.
In 1995, Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act mandating the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, sparking Palestinian protests. On Wednesday, Trump said his administration would begin the process of moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and would build a beautiful embassy for peace. His predecessors, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, had consistently put off that decision to avoid inflaming tensions in the Middle East. But Trump said that reality needed to be recognized–that the parliament, supreme court and leaders’ residences are all in Jerusalem–and therefore acknowledging a sovereign nation’s choice of its capital is “the right thing to do.”

Dr. Jürgen Bühler, ICEJ President, wholeheartedly welcomed what he called “today’s courageous landmark decision by the United States to finally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This is a long overdue step which goes to the core of the historic national identity of the Jewish people.” The ICEJ issued the following statement:
“Jerusalem holds great historical and religious significance for billions of people of faith all around the world, and as Christians we have to acknowledge that it all began with the Jewish people and their deep spiritual attachment to this city. For seven decades now, Jerusalem has served as the capital of the reborn state of Israel, demonstrating the centrality of this city to Jewish national life. In that time, Israel has established a proven track record as the proper custodian of its many holy places. Thus, we rejoice with the Jewish people that their beloved city is finally getting its due recognition. This also is a day of rejoicing for our own ministry, as the Christian Embassy has been at the forefront of Christian efforts to convince the community of nations to grant full diplomatic recognition to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. We are now hopeful other nations will quickly follow the bold lead of US President Donald Trump and move their embassies to this extraordinary city. Surely, the time has come to end the wholly undeserved diplomatic snubbing of Jerusalem.”

Trump emphasized in his speech that he is still committed to a peace deal between the two sides: “This decision is not intended in any way to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement. We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians.”

The U.S. embassy move is not expected to be immediate and could take at least three or four years.

In this televised speech, Netanyahu commented, “Israel will always ensure freedom of worship for Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. President Trump, thank you for today’s historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jewish people and the Jewish state will be forever grateful.”

Netanyahu says other countries have also contacted him as well as the Foreign Ministry to explore moving their embassies to Jerusalem.

As angry reactions erupt amongst Israel’s enemies, let us continue to”Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” (Psalm 122:6) If Israel chooses Jerusalem as its capital, then America and every other nation should simply recognize Israel’s capital. This is just plain common sense.

The president’s speech was no-nonsense, and as the politician that he has become, he also did not commit himself to the city’s “final status.” However, the God of Bible prophecy has!

Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain. (Zechariah 8: 3)

The following prayer letter was issued by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem:

We are currently at a very critical moment as US President Donald Trump is seriously considering a change of American policy on Jerusalem, a decision that is facing stiff opposition even within his own government. On Monday, he let pass the deadline for signing a waiver to delay the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, and on Wednesday he is expected to deliver a speech outlining his new position on the city. Press reports indicate he will announce his official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital while again delaying the move of the Embassy here.

This appears to be a half-way step meant to placate the Arabs and Muslims, while also trying to please his base, including pro-Israel Christians. But it still touches on the sensitive issue of Jerusalem, and thus the spiritual battle over the city is about to intensify even more. Here in Jerusalem, we sense an urgency to call Christians everywhere to pray and intercede over this pending decision by the US administration.

From the start of 2017, the Lord has been speaking to us about this being a year of Jubilee for Jerusalem. In modern times, there seems to be a Jubilee cycle in operation whereby every fifty years something dramatic is happening to release Jerusalem further into its prophetic destiny. This includes the discovery of the original City of David by Charles Warren in 1867, the liberation of Jerusalem by Gen. Edmund Allenby in 1917, and the reuniting of Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty in 1967. This means we can expect another Jubilee release for Jerusalem sometime during this biblical calendar year, which runs through mid-March 2018 (1st of Nisan).

According to the Law of Moses (Leviticus 25), in a Jubilee year slaves are set free, debts are forgiven, and land reverts to its rightful owners. The Bible further speaks of it as a year of God’s favour upon Israel. So we urge you to pray for all of Jerusalem to be fully released into God’s redemptive purposes for Israel this year. Pray that President Trump would be a modern-day Cyrus, making a decree that enables the Jewish people to reach their prophetic destiny here in this city. Pray that the Lord would show favour to Israel by quickly dealing with those who would seek to stoke violence over this decision. And finally, pray for the peace of Jerusalem – that the city would remain calm, united and in Jewish hands.

In Christ!

Dr. Jürgen Bühler

December 1st, 2017 via Intercessors for Israel

  1. We looked at Psalm 115:1-3 to jump start our prayer time.
    • Not unto us, YHWH, not unto us, but unto Your name give glory, for Your mercy, and Your truth’s sake. Why should the nations say, Where now is their God? But our God is in the heavens, and He has done whatever He has pleased.

    • We give You all the glory for whatever we accomplish in prayer during this time (Revelation 19:1).
    • We are encouraged that You truly are totally sovereign over Your creation (Psalm 96:10; 103:19).
    • We acknowledge Your Word as true and the truth and we trust totally in it (John 17:17).
    • For with You is the fountain of life: in Your light we shall see light. (Psalms 36:9)
    • Thank You for being our Comforter – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 1:3-4; John 14:16).
    • You are our Rock upon whom we can stand even in the middle of Your shakings (Psalm 18:2).
    • Lord Yeshua, You are all we need and we thank You for being here with us (1 Corinthians 1:30).
  2. Rain remains a very urgent need for this land.
    • Ask of the YHWH rain in the time of the latter rain, and YHWH shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. (Zechariah 10:1) So we ask You for lots of rain.
    • Regardless of Israel’s condition, Messiah Yeshua, You said Abba pours out rain on the just and unjust (Matthew 5:45). Therefore Abba, based on who You are, we ask for an abundant rain at this time.
    • Bless Israel with snow on Mount Hermon and the other higher elevations during the winter.
    • As per Your promise, please create whatever new water sources this nation needs (Isaiah 41:18).
    • Please regulate the amount of rainfall so that not one drop is wasted.
    • This is Your land (Ezekiel 36:5), which You said would be like the Garden of Eden (36:35). We ask for all the water that is needed for that word to be fulfilled soon.
  3. There seems to be no end to this demonic “peace” process – which is based on Israel giving away its God-given inheritance in exchange for a promise of peace. And that is not a good deal.
    • Yet God, we thank You that there is still no nation called ‘Palestine’ on Your land. Keep it that way.
    • Rejoice not…Palestine, because…I will kill your root with famine, and he shall slay your remnant. Howl, O gate; cry, O city; you…Palestine, are dissolved…

      Isaiah 14:29-31

    • Lord, dissolve the very idea of a ‘Palestine” being formed in the midst of Your land (Leviticus 25:23).
    • Thank You that PM Bibi Netanyahu openly stated that there is no Sadat on the Palestinian side.
    • Make Israel’s cabinet united on this truth of there being no Palestinian peace partner (Psalm 133:1).
    • Open President Trump’s heart to hear what Netanyahu is saying on this issue (Proverbs 12:15).
    • Hedge in the US “peace” team that is still working based on the failed “land-for-peace” paradigm.
    • Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

      Isaiah 33:7

      My hand shall be on the prophets that see vanity, that divine lies…because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace…

      Ezekiel 13:9-10

    • Strengthen Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon and use him to reveal the truth about this false peace process in the UN itself (Ezekiel 3:8-9).
    • Warn all global leaders how desire to divide Your land with this word: There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end of it leads to death. (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25)
  4. There are rumors that the US is about to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – even if they do not move their embassy up to it at this time. Is this good? Is this of God? Or is this a trap?
    • Lord, show us how to pray about this (James 1:5).
    • If this is to be done, let it be done because it is the right thing to do, and not with a quid-pro-quo attitude attached to it.
    • Help Trump be faithful to his pre-election repeated promise of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem (Matthew 5:37).
    • Protect Israel’s government from being trapped into agreeing with something that is not of You just to see this happen (Psalm 124:7-8).
    • Great King of kings, this is Your city (Psalm 48:1-2; Matthew 5:35). Arise and defend it.
    • We see that You are challenging the nations with Jerusalem in this hour (Zechariah 12:2-3). Impart to intercessors wisdom on how to pray for their nations to not fail this deadly test (12:9).
  5. Israel’s security situation is getting more complicated and dangerous with every passing day. Yet most of what we see can be broadly linked to what God says will occur at the end of this age. So we take comfort in Him and pray for Israel to be all He has chosen it to be – for His holy name’s sake. And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the gentiles, which you profaned in the midst of them; and the gentiles shall know I am YHWH…when I shall be sanctified in you [Israel] before their eyes. (Ezekiel 36:23)
    1. Intelligence
      • Give Israel’s military intelligence accurate actionable intelligence of all enemies’ plans (2 Kings 6:8-12).
      • Hide all of Israel’s spies and collaborators and provide them with all vital information (Joshua 2:4-11).
      • Give discernment to those receiving this information to know real vs. fake reports (Proverbs 22:20-21).
      • When deciphering the information, help Israel not to miss that which is vital and urgent.
      • Protect this nation against all cyberwarfare attacks (Psalm 140:7).
      • Aid Israel to have the tools to be able to attack their enemies in the cyberwarfare arena.
    2. Plans, tactics and strategies
      • Protect Israeli military planners from preparing for the past war – and not plan for the next one.
      • Break them out of all dangerous preconceived notions (Proverbs 16:3, 9).
      • Watch over this word for all those planning Israel’s future battles: There are many plans in a man’s heart; yet the counsel of YHWH – that shall stand. (Proverbs 19:21)
      • Download plans for all current and future battles from Your throne room to the IDF’s headquarters.
      • For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says YHWH. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

        Isaiah 55:8-9

      • Bring a deep unity among those responsible in this area and let them hear each other (Zechariah 8:16b).
      • Show Israel exactly where they are to position each of its submarines.
      • With all those who are planning for Israel to fight a multi-front war – which is so dangerous – encourage them to remember that the 1967 Six-Day War was also multi-front, and yet in six days…!
      • Abba, we ask for the fear of Israel’s God to descend upon all Your enemies now (Psalm 68:1; 83:1-2).
      • Move upon Israel’s civilian population to also be prepared for all future battles (Proverbs 22:3; 27:12).
      • Give wisdom to all hospitals and city governments to also be ready.
      • Give clarity today as to who will be in charge in the civilian areas – the IDF Homefront Command or the local city councils (1 Corinthians 14:33).
    3. Ultimately, God has promised to defend this nation – whether sovereignly or through the IDF, or both –it is still He Himself who has taken the responsibility to protect His regathered nation.
      • Behold He who guards Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.

        Psalms 121:4

      • As birds flying, so will YHWH of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also He will deliver it; passing over He will preserve it.

        Isaiah 31:5

      • Hear the word of YHWH, O gentiles, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep/guard him, as a shepherd does his flock.

        Jeremiah 31:10

      • YHWH also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but YHWH will be the hope of His people, the strength of the children of Israel.

        Joel 3:16

      • And it shall come to pass in that day that I will seek to destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem.

        Zechariah 12:9

  6. This past week Israeli children hiking in Samaria were attacked by a large mob of Palestinians. One Palestinian was killed by the Israeli guard – and some Palestinians even tried to protect the kids.
    • Lord, cool down the hotheads who will try to spark riots over the death of this cowardly thug.
    • Even speak calming words through Palestinian Authority President Abbas (Numbers 22:28-33).
    • Heal the traumatized children and their parents from this horrific deadly confrontation (Jeremiah 17:14).
    • Exonerate the guard from all wrongdoing if in fact this was a righteous use of his weapon in defense of helpless children (Romans 13:4b).
  7. We prayed for Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who seems to be trying to bring that nation into the 21st century and is acting in surprising ways towards Israel.
    • Lord, prevent Israeli leaders from salivating so much over this new openness with Saudi Arabia that they are not on the alert for this being a trap (Exodus 34:12; Psalm 91:3).
    • And please prevent Israeli politicians from saying things that they should not be saying (Psalm 141:3).
    • Protect this new young leader from all assassination attempts.
    • Move deeply upon him and introduce him to Messiah Yeshua, the King of all kings (Psalm 2:10-12).
    • As more Saudis are saying and writing positive things about Israel – watch over Your word to bless those who bless Israel – and let many other Muslims perceive this (Numbers 24:9b).
  8. With the Chanukah holiday approaching (from the evening of Dec. 12th to the 20th), the battle against the spirit of Humanism is not far from our thoughts. Humanism – which exalts man while diminishing God and His Word – was the real issue in the war of the Maccabees against the Syrio-Grecian armies (c. 185 BC). This spirit has invaded both Israel and the Church in our day.
    • Messiah Yeshua, You are the Light of the world (John 1:4-5). We ask for Your light to triumph over all darkness in both Israel and the Church at this season (Matthew 4:16).
    • Lord, as Jews the world over light the Chanukiah, the Chanukah menorah, and it burns brighter each night, may the light of the truth of Your Word also shine brighter in their hearts (Proverbs 20:27).
    • Drive this verse into many hearts in the Body of Messiah at this time: Thus says YHWH, cursed be the man that trusts in man, makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from YHWH. He shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. (Jeremiah 17:5-6)
    • Lord Yeshua, bring Your Body back to the place where instead of us judging Your Word – we allow Your Word to judge us (Psalm 119:133; Hebrews 4:12-13).
    • Messiah Yeshua, You are the Good Shepherd (Psalm 23:1; John 10:11, 14). Seek out and save many more sheep to add to Your sheepfold during December.
    • Please set Messianic Jews free from the humanism that has penetrated so much of rabbinic Judaism.
    • Please set Christians free from the humanism that has infiltrated so much Church doctrine and action.
    • For both of these parts of Your Body, impress on them that You are the center and circumference of our faith (Matthew 17:8; Hebrews 12:2).
    • Since You are the ultimate reason for this season – both for Chanukah and Christmas – we give You the glory for the great things You have done – and are doing in our day (Philippians 2:9-11).
    • During this season, may all Jews who are celebrating in exile and need to hide their light out of fear of man, see that it is time to come home and be free to openly let their light shine (Isaiah 60:1-2).
    • May Jews in exile when spinning a dreidel that indicates, “A great miracle happened there,” come back to Israel where the dreidels say, “A great miracle happened here!”

Shabbat shalom and blessings from Zion

  1. Hosea 14, the ending chapter of Shabbat’s prophetic portion contains some very encouraging verses which helped us to jump-start our morning.
    • O Israel, return to YHWH your God, for you have fallen by your iniquity. Take with you words, turn to YHWH; say to Him, ‘Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously…Assyria shall not save us; we will not ride on horses. Nor shall we say any more to the work of our hands, Our gods, for in You the fatherless finds mercy.’ I will heal their backslidings; I will love them freely; for My anger has turned away from him.

      Hosea 14:1-4

    • You are as much a God of love and grace in the Tanach [OT] as You are in the New [NT] (Malachi 3:6).
    • Bless You that all You have given is given freely. Nothing from You can be bought or earned.
    • Praise You for loving us so freely and graciously (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8).
    • Lord Yeshua, You are our source of hope (1 Peter 1:3).
    • Thank You for the gift – Your Word which is Your light to aid all our ways (Psalm 119:103).
    • Great is Your faithfulness which is new every morning to us and to Your nation (Lamentations 3:23).
  2. The Chanukah season always refocuses us on the dangers of the spirit of Humanism which has infiltrated Israel, the West and most of the Western Church. Humanism can be identified by the two methods Satan used to deceive Eve in Eden: 1) Has God said? The diminishing of – or placing doubts upon – God’s Word. 2) You shall be as God! The exaltation of man into the place of God.
    • Lord, You told us to remove the beam that is in our own eyes first (Matthew 7:5). So if there is anything of this anti-Christ spirit in us – search us and remove it for Your holy name’s sake (Psalm 139:23-24).
    • In both Israel and the Church, raise up the sons of Zion – those who look to Zion’s God for guidance, strength, and everything else – against the sons of Greece – those who look to mankind. (Zechariah 9:13).
    • While we thank You for Israel’s strong economy, its exceedingly great army (Ezekiel 37:10) and for its ally America – prevent this nation from trusting in anyone or anything other than You. Some trust in chariots, some in horses; but we will remember the name of YHWH our God. (Psalms 20:7)
    • It is better to trust in YHWH than to trust in man. It is better to trust in YHWH than to trust in princes. (Psalms 118:8-9) Make this the motto of both Your nation and Your worldwide Body at this crucial time.
    • Speak to Israel’s PM Bibi Netanyahu, warning him to not trust in any man or “princes” (Isaiah 31:1).
    • As Jews are reading the prophetic portion this Shabbat, speak into their spirits that You will heal their backslidings and You will heal them freely (Hosea 14:4) – that salvation is not something earned, but freely given by Your grace and love.
    • Expose and remove religious traditions that hinder having this relationship with You (Mark 7:8-9, 13).
    • Set Israeli society free from this humanistic spirit – especially its court system, the IDF, its academia and all its hospitals and the medical staff (Jeremiah 17:5-8).
    • Strip any vestige of this spirit that has gotten its claws into the Israeli Body of Messiah.
  3. Aliyah, the immigration of Jews in exile to Israel, is greatly hindered by the spirit of Humanism.
    • You told us to go through the gates and cast out all stones of stumbling from the path of Your people (Isaiah 62:10). As the context of Isaiah 62is intercession, we pray that all humanistic excuses for Jews in the nations to not come home to Israel now would be removed and destroyed.
    • While this will take a major miracle, nothing is impossible for You (Jeremiah 32:17, 27).
    • During Chanukah, speak to the Jews who hide their lamps that the time to return home is now.
    • We ask this not because it is easier here – but because the Jews coming home is declared to be for Your holy name’s sake (Isaiah 43:5-7; Ezekiel 36:22-24).
    • Show the Jews living among the nations that they will be safer here than there (Jeremiah 31:10).
    • As anti-Semitism grows, use it to chase Your people home (Jeremiah 16:16).
    • As the spirit of Islam in these nations grows, use that to also chase Your people home (Jeremiah 50:4-5).
  4. We prayed next for those parts of the true Church which, because of being infected with this demonic spirit, actually stand against the return of the Jews to God’s land. They do this through man-made doctrines and interpreting the Tanach – allegorically or as less of God’s Word to the Church today than the New Testament.
    • Lord, show many of these folks who have remade You into their image and likeness, that they are worshipping a man-made idol – and lead them to deep repentance.
    • Strip the Churches – especially in the West – of this humanistic spirit (Revelation 2:14-15, 20).
    • Speak to them as You spoke to Peter: Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you do not savor the things that are of God, but those that are of men. (Matthew 16:23)
    • Show those who place “social justice” against the fulfillment of prophecy, that their image of You is so small it is not worthy of the God who has revealed Himself in His written and living Word. For YHWH is a great God, and a great King above all gods. (Psalms 95:3)
    • We thank You that You are powerful enough to both fulfill Your prophetic Word and be socially just at the same time! God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
    • At this season of gift giving, give Your Body a gift of a deeper hunger for Your Word (Jeremiah 15:16).
    • Open the eyes of the elders to proclaim the full counsel of God – and help them to see that when Paul said this to the elders of Ephesus, he was historically only referring to the Tanach (Acts 20:27).
    • Lord Yeshua, restore to the Church the Bible that You read when sojourning among man – the Tanach of which You said it is the Word of God and cannot be broken (John 10:35; see also Luke 24:27, 44).
  5. The Iranian leadership are continuing their threats to annihilate Israel. They do not know that by cursing Israel they are cursing both themselves and their nation (Numbers 24:9). They are also trying to establish bases in Syria near the Israeli border and it seems to Israelis that neither Russia nor America have any problems with this. Yet Netanyahu and all the Israeli government are saying a very loud, “No!”
    • Lord, the nations are raging against Your nation! Arise God and scatter Your enemies (Psalm 68:1)
    • Abba, defend this nation for Your name’s sake (Psalm 44:4-8, 26).
    • Give heavenly wisdom and courage to Israel’s leaders at this time (Proverbs 21:1).
    • Enable them to preempt if needed and to not look to the nations for permission.
    • Keep not silence, O God. Do not be speechless. Be not still. For behold, Your enemies roar; those who hate You have lifted up their head. They take shrewd counsel against Your people…[saying] ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, so that the name Israel may be remembered no more’. For with one heart they have plotted together; they have made a covenant against You…

      Psalms 83:1-5

    • Lord, disrupt their one heart; throw them into deep confusion and division (Psalm 109:26-29; 129:5).
  6. While Israel is a target for Shi’ite Iran, their ultimate enemy is the Sunni Muslims – a majority in the Arab Middle East. We have seen an increase in animosity between these two enemies of Israel for many decades, and perceive this to be one of the ways God is answering our prayers. We also prayed for Israel’s leaders to have much wisdom in their dealings with the so-called “moderate” Arab nations.
    • Abba, we are encouraged that to You all nations are like a drop in a bucket (Isaiah 40:15-17).
    • Thank You Lord, for setting Israel’s enemies against each other (2 Chronicles 20:22-23).
    • Prevent Israel from being deceived in its growing relationship with Saudi Arabia (Numbers 23:23).
    • Reveal the true heart intent of Saudi’s Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman so that Israel does not waltz into a trap by joining hands with an enemy of God (Ezra 8:22, 31).
    • Watch over the relationship between Israel and Egypt and protect Egyptian President al-Sissi from all assassination attempts.
    • Lord, hedge in the words that Israel’s leaders speak about their relations with the Arab nations.
    • Let that which should be secret – remain secret (Deuteronomy 29:29).
    • God, break the relationship between Sunni Turkey and Shi’ite Iran (Jeremiah 49:35).
    • Show us show to pray into this Russian, Iran, Turkey triumvirate that has recently developed.
    • O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no might against this great company which comes against us. Nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.

      2 Chronicles 20:12

  7. With all the political shakings, there is also a spiritually shaking among the Muslims. Reports are that multitudes are coming to know the true King of Israel – Yeshua the Messiah! There is no better way to pray for our enemies than to ask for them to become part of our family.
    • Thank You for moving among many Muslims in the Middle East – and saving them (Matthew 5:44).
    • Lord, send out more laborers into the harvest (Luke 10:2).
    • Continue to shame Muslims in all their actions against Israel so that they come to see that Allah is not God and will then seek Your name (Psalm 83:16).
    • Protect and hide the growing Iranian church from that nation’s anti-Christ leadership (Psalm 17:8; 27:5).
    • Speak to those Iranians believers who have been saved in the nations that You want to send back home.
    • Move upon Muslims in Israel – especially in Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:16).
    • As You save Muslims, also set them free from all anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist spirits (Exodus 18:9-11).
    • Empower the Egyptian Church to grow and influence all aspects of their society (Isaiah 19:18-19).
    • Save, protect and use many Syrian refugees – including many of those who have come to realize that Israel is not their enemy.
    • Move upon the Church in Lebanon to take a stand against Hizbullah in the spirit realm (Isaiah 28:6).
    • Lord, save influential people from Iran, Hizbullah and Hamas – and use them for Your glory.
  8. We prayed for Jews in Israel and in exile to meet their King Messiah during Chanukah. By the way, Chanukah is not until the evening of December 12th. We are just praying as He leads.
    • Abba, as the light of the Chanukiah increases each night, make the light of Your revelation concerning Your Son also increase. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it. (John 1:4-5)
    • We bless You for the positive articles and letters to the editors about believers that have appeared in the Israel English newspapers this past week – including about Messianic Jews. Use this answer to prayer.
    • Bring into the saving light of Yeshua all unsaved loved ones of Messianic Jewish families (Acts 16:31).
    • Impart dreams and visions to Your people during this feast – especially to the children (Joel 2:28-29).
    • Draw many Jews to read the New Testament without the filter that rabbinic Judaism lays over it.
    • In fact, may more of Your people read the Tanach as well – without that same filter.
    • For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we shall see light.

      Psalms 36:9

Please continue to pray for rain and whatever other wetness the Lord wants to pour out on this land. We have had several days of rain and there are forecasted for several more – yet we need lots more. While we do bless God for what He has sent in this area, we continue to ask for that miracle of having Him fill up the Sea of Galilee and all of Israel’s underground aquifers by the end of the rainy season.

Shabbat shalom and blessings from Jerusalem,

The IFI team

Washington, D.C.– The Jerusalem Channel’s UK Trustee Barbara Dingle attended the gala opening dinner as well as the ribbon cutting and mezuzah blessing of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) section in the newly opened Museum of the Bible.

“The People of the Land – History and Archeology of Ancient Israel” is a spacious exhibition housing over 800 artefacts from ancient Israel at this powerful new museum in the heart of the nation’s capital city. In the photo above is Museum of the Bible President Carey Summers during the opening which is the only permanent exhibition of the IAA outside of Israel.

Standing next to a large stone from Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, Israel’s Tourism Minister Yarin Levin declared that this new museum will “unravel the Bible for both scholar and novice.” Levin also spoke of the emotional connection to Jerusalem to be found within the walls of the massive new museum.

Ambassador Ron Prosor, one of Israel’s most distinguished ambassadors, was also present to stress the importance of this exhibition in showcasing the Jewish nation’s  4000-year history in the Land of Israel.

In Jewish tradition, a mezuzah was placed on the entrance door as a sign of God’s promises and protection along with the related prayer. For more information  on this new monument to the Word of God, visit www.museumofthebible.org

The Museum of the Bible – a project seven years in the making – officially opens its doors this weekend.  The opening celebration and dedication of The Museum of the Bible is a great declaration in the American capital of Psalm 119, “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
