1. John Kerry is set to arrive in Israel
Kerry is headed to Israel on Thursday to add pressure to the Israel/Palestinian peace process, by presenting requirements and “opportunities” for both parties. Kerry has been making repeated trips (5 in all) to Israel since March, and with each visit, the situation becomes more dangerous. Kerry keeps insisting that this is the time for peace and that huge sacrifices must be made to produce an independent PA State. Naturally, the sacrifices are demanded of Israel, while largely giving the Palestinians a pass. The fact that there are no raw materials for a functional, legitimate, Palestinian State is a moot point in the discussions. One simply must conclude that the international and Arab goal (in this Palestinian State mess) is the annihilation of Israel. The whole Palestinian claim and demand for their own state, is a Trojan horse; perched on top of a feeble house of cards. And yet … this seems to be the #1 project of the entire world community!! The latest word is that Bibi Netanyahu is being told to release 120 Palestinian prisoners, who have been jailed since before the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993. As a goodwill gesture to entice the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table, Israel is supposed to release terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands. How ridiculous is that? Just to get these Palestinian negotiators to the table to talk, Jewish lives are already being put at risk by such a demand … and justice is being thrown out the window to be trampled under foot, How about if everyone dumps that prisoner release idea, and begins discussions with the basic demand that ALL of the Palestinians agree that Israel has a right to exist? Now that is a reasonable (and a just) STARTING PLACE worth demanding!! Think about it! No one releases terrorists, to bring other terrorists to a negotiating table, so that they can give a massive number of terrorists (who have covenanted together to kill you) a permanent home on your own property. Such an endeavor is the definition of insanity … but that is what Washington is demanding of Israel. With this kind of help from Washington, we would soon be crushed under the Palestinian agenda, if not for the Lord! Oh, and I should add that the Palestinians are demanding that ALL construction of Jewish homes in East Jerusalem and the “West Bank” be stopped immediately, if we want any Palestinian to talk peace with Kerry.
- Pray that NOT ONE SINGLE PALESTINIAN PRISONER is released, and that Israel will have the chutzpah to say, “NO!”
- Pray that Israel will stop trying so hard to please the Obama administration, and the EU, and the Arab League, and the UN, and instead begin to make it a priority and our goal to please YHVH the most.
- There are people, like Deputy Defense Minister, Danny Danon, who are committed to holding onto the truth and onto the Land … those, who want to annex the disputed territories and to build upon them legally, rather than kowtow to the Palestinian lies/agenda. Pray for these visionaries to have increased authority, credibility and opportunity. Also pray for their protection.
- Pray that John Kerry has to return to the States before they can even land the plane in Israel.
- Pray that Jewish building increases geometrically, and the angels of YHVH will defend that everything that is built.
- Pray that the Palestinian negotiators and the PA leadership totally overplay their hand in making these demands. May their greed make them foolish in the way they speak, even as their hatred toward the Jews makes the arrogant in making their demands.
- Pray for the Jewish members of the Knesset to unite behind the plan to hold onto the Land, and to give nothing to the Palestinians for the privilege of negotiating with them.
- Pray that the treasonous, hateful, Palestinian members of the Knesset will resign from their posts and not be replaced by others like them … or that they will be run out of the Knesset, and have their citizenship revoked on the basis of treason, Those, who call for the destruction of Israel, should not be allowed to be legislators for the State of Israel.
- Pray for the wisdom of Solomon to fill Bibi this week, and to fill the hearts and minds of all those, who hold positions of leadership within Israel.
2. Rockets are being fired into Israel from Gaza again!
Supposedly a power struggle of disagreement between Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza is playing a role in these rocket launches. However, it could be that the terrorists are baiting Israel into a larger confrontation with them, to gain greater sympathy and support from the whole Arab Islamic world; manipulating them into coming forth into a war with Israel, on behalf of the “Palestinian struggle.” Whatever this is all about, the IAF will be hitting back hard on Gaza. There are currently some discussions going on, in some circles, about the Jews re-taking Gaza and cleaning it out. After all, Gaza is part of Judah’s biblical inheritance from YHVH. Israel handed it over a few years ago for a promise of peace … and got increased terror attacks in return.
- Pray that the terror factions in Gaza and elsewhere would really begin to battle each other for ascendency … destroying each other and making it clear to the world that this will never work.
- Pray protection over all the Jews (and over the sojourners with Israel) against these rocket attacks.
- for the IAF to have skill, wisdom, supernatural intelligence, and accuracy when it comes to responding to these attacks.
- If YHVH wants the Jews to regain Gaza, pray that HE makes it happen.
- Pray that there will be no war, unless YHVH initiates it, and unless He fights for Israel in all the battles.
- Pray for the Left-wing Jews to WAKE UP to the truth!
- Pray for the ultra-Orthodox Jews, who believe that the existence of the State of Israel is a form of blaspheme against YHVH, would GET A REVELATION!
3. NEIGHBORS TO THE NORTH
The situation in Syria continues to intensify; with Russia standing firmly with Assad. The message is clear from Putin. An attack on Assad’s forces is an attack on Russia. Western powers, including the USA, have been joining with Sunni forces from various Islamic nations, to train and to discuss how to support rebel forces so that they can oust Assad. They are also preparing for some potential cross border fighting from Syria into Jordan and Turkey (by land or by air. Of course Israel is watching her borders to the north for the same threat from hostile forces on either side of the conflict. To add to the tension, Hizbullah is now being embroiled with conflict in Lebanon’s city of Sidon, with Sunni forces, who are in favor of the Syria rebels. Many of the members of the Lebanese army are Sunni, even as the government of Lebanon includes (Shiite) Hizbullah leadership … as well as Hizbullah infiltration into that nation’s army. What a tangled, Islamic mess!! The USA and the west would do well to stand back and let the Moslem’s fight it out, as Israel’s enemies sometimes battled each other in bible times. YHVH could be blessing Israel by putting her enemies at odds with each other. We shouldn’t get into the middle of what YHVH is doing and thereby try to change it. Father knows best! Interesting note: A massive ocean liner container ship (the Mol Comfort), carrying 4500 containers of US weapons (being sent as aid to the Syrian rebels), broke in half inexplicably and sank in the Indian Ocean. Hummmm … what a sign!
- Pray that the Lord would sort out all this mess, and in doing so, fulfill His word to Israel.
- Pray that Israel’s enemies would be continually stirred up against each other to the point that they forget about Israel altogether. Pray that the destruction of Israel would not be raised up by satan, in their minds and hearts, as a renewed, common, goal around which, they can all rally in common purpose for Islam.
- Pray that YHVH would make Russia too busy to threaten Israel on behalf of her Islamic allies. Pin Russia down, Lord!
- Pray that YHVH would put up a roadblock against any US involvement in the Syria conflict. Pray that there would not be any American boots on the ground in Syria, or pilots flying over Syria.
- Pray that YHVH would sort out the leadership and power struggles in Syria; putting His own people into leadership posts.
- Pray for revival to fall upon the Syrian people. Pray strength, wisdom, and courage into the hearts and minds of the Syrian believers.
- Thank YHVH for the message of the ship, Mol Comfort, and for making this strange catastrophe well known to the public.
4. A UN Human Rights Committee has charged Israel with atrocities against hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children. Please read the details:
The Palestinians are among the most abusive people in the world, when it comes to children. They teach them to hate, and train them from pre-school age on up into adulthood to kill Jews. The build and launch rockets from within schools, and kindergartens. They hide behind them and send children to carry explosives between terrorists. And this UN decree has the audacity to report that the Israelis murder and torture Palestinian children … use them as human shields … deny them water and basic human rights … and even imprison them for throwing harmless rocks. OUTRAGEOUS! May YHVH judge this committee and the UN for this biased, Jew hatred that fills the hearts and minds of the international ignorant with hatred toward Israel!
- Pray that YHVH would bring down shame upon the head on the United Nations organization, and upon those in the UN, who knowingly allow this wicked Human Rights committee (comprised of some vicious human rights offenders) to use this committee as a weapon of lies to destroy Israel.
- Pray for the release of the Spirit of Truth into this situation
- Pray for protection, deliverance and inner healing of the Palestinian children.
- Pray for honest, Palestinian truth-tellers to arise to counter these claims of the UN.
- Pray for the truth about Israel’s conduct and care of the innocents … and even for the guilty … to be accurately reported.
- Pray that the hearts of the Israelis do not grow cold and bitter in light of these kinds of constant false reports and condemnations.
- Pray for YHVH’s mercy to appear. The UN, and the Palestinians fabricating these reports, are returning evil for good. Such deceitful behavior against YHVH’s people is very dangerous.
- Pray for righteous advocates to arise and to strike down this report … decrying it utterly, and holding the members of this committee to account.
- Pray that the USA would cut off its funding to the UN and disassociate from it. Pray that other nations would as well. Bring down the UN, Lord! Strip it of all power, in the moment of Your choosing … humiliate it.
