ISSUES IN NEED OF INTERCESSION:
1: TERROR ATTACKS, RIOTS, and WORSENING ODDS AGAINST ISRAEL
During this past week, Jerusalem suffered a deadly terror attack, by a member of Hamas (driving his car into a crowd waiting to get on the light rail train); killing a three-month-old baby, and a 22-year-old young woman. Arab riots have become nearly a daily experience in the city; with Moslem pride and rage peaking against the Jews. Much of this unrest is a result of the constant incitement from the Palestinian leadership; which is receiving support, diplomatic fuel, and encouragement from the Islamic world.
What YHVH is waiting for is a situation that leaves Israel with NO HOPE and NO HELP, except in Him alone. In this way, the glory for Israel’s deliverance (from certain takeover and destruction) will come to YHVH, and to no one else. It will also mean that the maximum humiliation will come to Israel’s enemies when they are defeated by a little nation standing alone without any human help. If not for the Lord, Israel is history. In the type of scenario that YHVH is bringing forth, the Jews will recognize YHVH’s deliverance with brilliant clarity, even as their enemies will see the source of their defeat with perfect revelation. In 1948 … in 1967 … in 1973, etc. … each time when Israel was backed into a desperate corner by the Islamic nations around her, YHVH stepped in to miraculously save her. However, now, it is the whole world that is set against Israel. There are many more enemies to be convinced, defeated and humiliated in our present situation. Therefore each enemy must be drawn into the fray as YHVH plants a hook into its jaw. Think about it: Israel still looks toward the USA to be a savior and a supplier for her. Finance Minister, Yair Lapid, made headlines a couple of days ago when he declared that Israel must overcome the current crisis with the USA. In other words, he and others believe that Israel needs to comply with the demands of the US administration (keeping them happy), or Israel will be left to die without help, without allies, and without supplies. In reality, Israel only needs to comply with the mandates of YHVH for us to make a successful stand against the whole world.
**Pray that as the situation becomes more desperate … more lopsided against Israel … so that the Jewish people will look to, and cry out to, YHVH for their deliverance through His intervention.
**Pray that the pride and control, being exerted by Israel’s enemies … working and threatening against her survival … will be brought swiftly to utter humiliation by the hand of YHVH in His set time and way.
**Pray for Israel (especially for her leaders … governmental, military, and spiritual) to SEE and to BELIEVE the words of the scriptures that promise YHVH’s deliverance.
**Pray that the Israeli idolatry of America will end, so that her heart is available to apprehend the delivering reality of YHVH.
**Pray for protection of the Jewish people against the terror attacks and threats that are all around them on an increasingly daily basis.
**Pray for the Jews to trust in YHVH, even as the parents of the murdered baby expressed their confidence in Him at her funeral. They said that they could not understand why YHVH allowed their greatly beloved and longed-for child to be taken … and yet they knew that He had a plan greater than their understanding could grasp.
**Pray for comfort to be upon these parents, who lost their baby after waiting years to conceive her. Pray for them to be given another child … even two.
**Pray for comfort to be upon the family of the slain young women, who was also killed by the terror attack.
**Pray healing for the wounded man, who remains in the hospital.
**Pray for the police, the border control, and the military as they deal with the Arab uprisings and threats.
**Pray for the Jews to stand against fear, and to pick up courage to face the threats increasing against them
2: THE TWO-STATE SCENARIO … A RECIPE FOR DESTRUCTION
Why are the Palestinians so insistent upon having a state based upon the pre-1967 borders and nothing less? The answer to that question MUST be understood in order for the erroneous western mindsets (determined to grant such a state) to be broken. This is not an Israeli/Palestinian conflict. This is an Israeli/Islamic conflict. Islam is not just a religion. It is an ideology and system that encompasses social, military and governmental operations. It is all about victory and conquest on behalf of Islam, based upon the favor of allah … favor, which is derived from strict obedience to the mandates of the Koran and the Hadiths. In the early part of the 1900’s, the Ottoman Turks were defeated in the region after 1400 years of Islamic conquest victories. In 1915 the British and the French divided up the territory of the region, which the Moslems had at one time taken in conquest. IMPORTANT NOTE: Islam does NOT ALLOW for any smidgeon of land, which was once taken in the name of allah, to EVER exist under another sovereignty. The Koran insists that once a territory (or an individual) has been identified as Islamic, it must remain that way forever. If the followers of allah are favored by their god, he supposedly gives them the victory of conquest.
Now consider what happened in 1967. Israel was attacked in overwhelming numbers by a confederacy of Islamic nations; intending to regain the territory of Israel, which the Turks had lost. Little Israel was massively outgunned and impossibly outnumbered, and yet, Israel defeated these attackers in just six days. In the process, she legally acquired land, according to international law, as a result of the unprovoked aggression of these enemies against her. The defeat of these Islamic fighters by puny little Jews was a shock, a trauma, and a massive shame to the Moslem world. Rather than reacquiring the land lost by the defeat of the Turks, these attacking Moslem nations lost additional land to the Jews, because of their own defeat. As a result of this massive sign of allah’s disapproval, the Islamic leaders from around the world met in Cairo to find out where they went wrong. Rather than to consider that they had been battling the God of Israel unsuccessfully for many years, they concluded that they had lost allah’s favor because they had not been stringently following sharia law. Now we can understand why the strict sharia sects have been increasing since then. The Moslem Brotherhood, ISIS, al-Qaida, Boko Haram, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the Taliban, Hizbullah, Hamas, etc, etc, etc. have been seeking the favor of allah, so that he will give them victory and the caliphate. These groups credit their bloody victories and territorial gains to allah’s favor arising from their severe observance of sharia. Now consider that any Moslem, who cedes any territory to infidels, (or who fails to reclaim it for Islam) will be absolutely hell bound according to the Koran, and you get a clearer understanding of where we are with this pre-1967 borders demand. Not only do the Palestinians NOT WANT a state unless it is pre-1967 (which is really 1949 Armistice lines), according to the Koran, they are FORBIDDEN, by threat of hell, to not demand it and get it. That means ALL of Jerusalem, and ALL of Judea and Samaria, the Jordan Valley, the Golan Heights, etc. are required to eventually become Islamic possessions by either international manipulation (through diplomatic lies), or by jihad (violent take-over). The western nations could stop this activity diplomatically, but have chosen to support the Palestinian State (with the pre-1967 borders) to gain Islamic favor and benefits. They could help Israel stop it militarily (by fighting Palestinian terrorism), but they have chosen to accuse Israel, and thereby open the door of opportunity to those, who are intent upon destroying her.
Now consider the left-wing Israelis. Most of these folks are humanists, who have no reality in Israel’s God … no investment in Jewish identity as inheritors of the Land … and no grasp upon the true reality of evil vs. good. They are fearful that the world will NOT ALLOW Israel to exist unless she agrees that the land belongs to the Palestinians, and unless Israel hands it over. They are pessimistic about Israel’s chances of survival, and of her ability to fight against the overwhelming odds. They believe that handing over the Land and accepting indefensible borders (which will be maintained only until their enemies cross over to kill them) is their best chance of survival. They surmise that perhaps our enemies will come to love us, when they see how generous we are to them. WHAT FOOLISHNESS! The Koran FORBIDS any Jewish presence on any part of the Land of Israel, unless we convert to Islam or become slaves of Islam (becoming dhimmis that perpetually pay a demanded price to stay alive). This conflict will not end with a Palestinian State. That State will only supply the Moslems with a launching pad for a larger war against us … much like our surrender of Gaza has done in the hands of Hamas.
NOTE: Here is an Islamic text that makes the point of the real plan of Islam toward infidels:
Ishaq: 327 “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”
Anyone, who declares that Islam is a religion of peace is either totally ignorant about Islam or is a blatant liar.
**Pray that Israel will present the legal, international, right for Israel to keep her Land, according to the San Remo doctrines (treaty), and according to the Levi report.
**Pray that Israel’s leaders (especially Bibi Netanyahu and his cabinet) will stand firmly against this ploy of Islam to take the Land, and to kill the Jewish people.
**Pray for intercessors around the world to get a revelation of what is REALLY happening in regard to Islam and Israel in this hour. Rise up and pray! Rise up and speak the truth!
**Pray for the western leaders of the world to get a revelation about the realities of Islam, and about the Moslem goals to institute sharia law worldwide; involving a global bloodbath … including those foolish western “enablers” known as Humanists, living among the infidels.
**Pray for the blindness of the west and that of the Israeli left to break off.
**Pray for the mesmerization of the media to end … this intoxication of prideful power to influence outcomes, which turns a blind eye to the truth, in order to prosper the Islamic agenda, or to promote the cause of the purported social “underdogs” of the world.
**Pray for the Spirit of Truth to be released across the world, and for an appetite for truth to be sent into the populations of the world.
**Pray for the Israelis to unite as one voice against this Palestinian State formation, regardless of what the world community says or does. The Lord will back up our “NO!”.
**Pray for the believers around the world to arise into positions of influence … into leadership of governments, media, business, etc. to stand up and to speak in support of Israel.
**Pray for the truth about Islam to become widespread and common knowledge.
**Pray for protection of the truth-tellers about these things.
3: THE MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLBEING OF THE ISRAELIS/JEWS, WHO ARE BEING BOMBARDED BY CURSES FROM ISLAM AND THE WORLD.
It is very difficult to describe to you the ferment in the atmosphere over the Land right now. Believers and non-believers are feeling the attacks and the pressure emotionally and mentally, as well as physically. The voices of the Arabs in Israel are getting louder, even as their physical attacks are becoming more virulent against the Jews. The calls to prayer from the minarets now come with greater volume and length; containing blatantly bold calls for action against the Jewish presence in the Land. They announce that Jerusalem and the Temple Mount are about to become totally Islamic … that fighters from around the world are on their way. Consider the impact upon the Jewish the heart and mind, arising from these declarations! The world is saying that we are illegal occupiers and thieves of Palestinian land. They say we were not defenders, but rather murderers of the “innocent Palestinians” during Operation Protective Edge. The Hamas leader, political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal, during an interview with Vanity Fair Magazine denied that the Gaza tunnels were created or used for terrorism. He said that they were used for defense against Israeli attacks … that the Jews lied about the tunnels in order to have the freedom to kill the Palestinians through air attacks. In a direct quote, Mashaal told the interviewer: “The war was imposed on us and we simply defended ourselves . . . we are saddened by the loss of lives, but who should bear responsibility? It’s the Israelis: politicians, military, and security leaders. As for us, we stood our ground in this war. We thwarted Netanyahu’s plot .” He has also said that Mohammad Deif, the arch terrorist of Hamas, is actually alive … that the Israeli attacks did not kill him. The world reads … it listens, and it swallows down the lies as truth. Hatred against Israel is growing as the result. Word curses are flying at us, as lies are being given the power to direct the global attitude regarding Israel and the Jewish people. The unofficial vote in the UK parliament in support of the Palestinian cause was falsely reported as being the official will of the British government. One by one the western nations … and even China and Russia … are coming into line with the Palestinian/Islamic agenda against Israel. Islam is telling us that our days are numbered, and that we will soon be overrun and slaughtered.
**Pray that they Holy Spirit would wash the minds and heal the hearts of the Jews, who are under attack from this witchcraft.
**Pray to break the power of the witchcraft and the curses by the application of the blood of Yeshua … especially those curses being sent forth from the mosques, from the occult practioners, and from the global elite.
**Pray for the Lord to deal with the intentional liars, who are inciting hatred against the Jewish people and against Israel.
**Bind down the Accuser of the Brethren in the global Christian and Jewish communities, so that their voices of condemnation and cursing are not raised against Israel.
**Pray for the armor of the Messiah to be placed upon the Israelis; protecting them from the constant onslaught of hatred and cursing.
**Pray for the voice of YHVH to be louder in the hearts and minds of the Jews, than the voice of their enemies is heard.
**Bind down the spirits of Hopelessness, Death, Self-Hatred, Depression, Displacement, and Sadness.
**Pray for the Jews to have the ability to recognize that these negative, rejection thoughts and messages are not coming from within their own hearts and minds.
**Pray for the believers in the Land to recognize the mental/emotional attacks against them, so that they can reject them, and then become a voice of truth and encouragement to others, who are under this kind of attack.
**Pray for a renewing of the minds of the Jewish people, and a healing of their wounded hearts.
**Pray for true, sacrificial, steadfast, friends of Israel to arise to hold up the Jewish arms in this hour.
**Pray for YHVH to send help from His holy mountain … to send His angels to knock these curses out of the atmosphere.
**Pray that those, who are cursing, condemning and rejecting Israel, would receive back a large dose of the Fear of YHVH for every unholy word or action they send forth.
**Pray for the Gentiles, who love Israel, to also love the Jewish people. Too many love their fascination with Israel, and the blessings they receive from Israel for themselves, but have little love in action for the Jewish people. Convict them, Lord.
**Pray that the word of YHVH would come alive in the Jewish hearts and minds in this season, so that they would root their hearts in His love and affirmation, as the world rejects/condemns them.
**Release the Spirits of Life, Faith, Hope, Courage, Joy, and Shalom into the hearts and minds of the Jewish people.
**Pray that the Jews see/recognize the hand of the Lord moving on their behalf in this hour.
**Pray for the Israelis to endure and to never give up their land, their identity, their calling, or their hope in YHVH.
