Well, done, good and faithful intercessors!!
Our prayers have been answered! The left wing leaders and media throughout the world are enraged and shocked by the election results in Israel. They never saw it coming! The anti-Bibi folks never dreamed that he would be re-elected; let alone be returned to office by a landslide. Those negative people worked too hard, and spent too much money to insure his defeat, for them to imagine Bibi Netanyahu walking away with a victory. Surely, the Palestinian Authority was a bit shocked as well. John Kerry has been telling Abbas to sit tight, and to keep things quiet to help the left-wing cause in the election. The enemies of Israel are sooo disappointed that the humanist “doves” weren’t put into power. TOO BAD! YHVH had a different plan in effect. As the poster reads: YOU CAN’T ELECT A DOVE TO DO A LION’S JOB!” The lion has not been bounced off the mountain! Thanks be to YHVH! Here is the latest tally”
With 99% reporting, the projection stands at 30 seats for Likud and 24 for the Zionist Union. The parties that follow are Joint Arab List (14); Yesh Atid (11); Kulanu (10); Jewish Home (8); Shas (7); United Torah Judaism (7); Yisrael Beiteinu (6); and Meretz (4)
61 seats must come together successfully in order for a coalition to be assembled into
an operating government. When a party agrees to come into the coalition, the total number of seats won by that party are added to the count toward a successful government formation.
President Rivlin now wants Bibi to go into a unity government with Herzog. However, neither of those men will go for it. They are far too different in their goals, priorities, worldview, and methods to be able work together. Herzog will be the voice of the opposition that sits against Bibi’s coalition; offering an alternative to Bibi’s governance. That is a role Herzog never expected; considering the polling results just a couple of days ago. The Lord turned the election.
On Sunday, Bibi will be given the opportunity to form a coalition government in the meeting that he and Herzog will have with Pres. Rivlin at the president’s residence. Between now and then, Bibi will be making deals with those, who are willing to join his government. The bargaining will center on the distribution of the prestigious and powerful cabinet ministry portfolios. After that consideration, will be the demands of potential coalition members regarding specific policies/positions to be taken by the new government. Some of the leadership assignments for the various ministries have already been conditionally offered (during negotiations prior to the election) … in the event that Bibi won. Herzog did the same thing, hoping that he would be elected over Bibi. Now is the time when all the offers must be extended officially, solidified, and confirmed.
Newscasters are suggesting that the results of this election will impact the whole world. I suspect that is true. No one doubts that war in Israel is far from coming. Hamas is actively building tunnels every day, and firing test rockets and missiles out into the sea. That is an unmistakable signal to the Israelis that another round of violence is being planned for the Jewish State. Hamas has been preparing to attack Israel regardless of the election outcome, so no one should blame Bibi for a future conflict from that wicked group. It also appears that Kerry and Obama are ready to sign a deal with Iran over their nuclear program. Surely the Lord will not be silent much longer. Imagine the blind arrogance of signing on to a dangerous, false, agreement, in order to receive a Nobel Peace Prize, and to leave office with a legacy! Never mind that these two are willing to sign a document with Iran regardless of the fact that the ink on the paper might be comprised of the blood from nuked Jews. The global elite will be happy to offer up the Nobel Peace award for such foolishness, if it advances their humanist goals. We are heading into uncharted waters. It’s good to know that YHVH is the “Overseer” of all things. We can find deep rest and peace in that truth. Now, let’s consider some matters and strategies for intercession to cover this week.
–Bibi is physically and emotionally exhausted. He has been poured out continually week after week, but especially during these last three days before the election. The trip to Washington, the first week of March, would have been enough to deplete most leaders; considering all the stress and conflict that surrounded his speech. Bibi had no opportunity to rest following that momentous event, before heading back into the campaign battlefield. Never before has an Israeli leader, seeking re-election, been so slandered, disrespected, and brutalized in the media (and from those vying for the premiership) as Netanyahu has been. Pray for Bibi to be restored and refreshed. Pray the same for his family, as they, too, have been attacked viciously throughout the campaign. Pray that any form of fatigue will not play a role in the decisions he will need to make in the coming weeks. Pray that YHVH will renew Bibi’s mind and rebuild his strength.
–As Netanyahu invites various parties to join his government, he must not make any unholy compromises … or break any promises. The people need to see Bibi’s word as trustworthy, after the intense slander campaign against him (suggesting that he couldn’t be trusted). The vital promise that he must NEVER compromise is the one that he made in the final days prior to the election. He announced that he would never agree to the Two State solution and to a Palestinian State on his watch. Pray that YHVH will bring in the coalition partners that HE wants in the government, and keep out all those, who need to stay outside. Pray that YHVH will lead Bibi as he offers cabinet positions and solidifies key appointments. Pray that YHVH would not allow Bibi to make any unholy or foolish deals in order to secure a coalition partner. Pray that he will move swiftly to announce the construction of more apartments, as well as the building of new hospital facilities (and adding more staff) to meet the current needs. Pray that he increases benefits to the pensioners, and to the Holocaust Survivors, to ease their financial suffering. Pray that Bibi will get stronger every day in regard to his position about “NO PALESTINIAN STATE”. He is correct in saying that life as a peaceful, mutuality of neighbor nations is not possible with the Palestinians at this point; given the goals and activities of the Palestinian leadership … and due to the anti-Israel hatred within the Palestinian people … incited through endless streams of propaganda and lies from the Palestinian leadership for many years.
–The combined Arab list gained enough seats (14) in this election to become the third largest party in the Knesset. If they ever joined Herzog in the opposition role, Bibi’s government would be more at risk for a take down from a “no confidence” vote. But, most important is the fact that the nation would be greatly at risk if the Arabs were officially sitting among the opposition. In the event of war, or when dealing with major security issues, the opposition must be included in the briefings, as decisions are made. Can you imagine what would happen if the hostile, anti-Israel Arab members of the Knesset (including Zoabi) were given the secret information regarding Israeli troop movements, capabilities, and strategies in a conflict with any Arab Moslems? They probably wouldn’t hesitate to share private Israeli information with the global humanist nations either. Every bit of classified information could be immediately placed into the hands of Israel’s enemies, by these Arab Knesset members, if they were privy to it by sitting with the opposition headed up by Herzog. That must NEVER happen! Pray that the unity of these Arabs will BREAK UP quickly, so that they become a collection of fractions rather than a whole block. Pray that Herzog will reject any relationship with the Arabs, and that they will reject him. Pray that when classified secrets are discussed within this new government’s leadership, that information will remain with inside the cabinet. NO LEAKS! NO TRAITORS! Pray that the FEAR OF YHVH will be upon this collection of Arab legislators, so that they don’t bog down the progress of the Knesset, nor keep it in perpetual turmoil. Pray for the Fear of YHVH to be upon the entire coalition, and all of it’s members. Pray for YHVH to rule over the whole Knesset.
–One big issue to consider is how Obama, the EU, and the international community will now deal with Israel and with Bibi. Netanyahu has demonstrated his valid authority (and rightful responsibility) to take a stand on behalf of his nation against Iran and the Palestinian State. At the time of this writing, Obama has not yet offered Bibi congratulations for that win. I would have been very surprised had he done so. Obama only offered congratulations to the Israelis for having had a successful democratic election. That’s lame, but it’s congruent with Obama’s lack of regard for Bibi. Not surprisingly, the EU has come forth today, declaring that Israel MUST restart the Palestinian peace talks immediately. Their suggestion is that if Israel does not bow to the will of the nations, she will be hit with more BDS pressure, as boycotts, divestment and sanctions come crashing down on her economy to force compliance. Meanwhile, all around the world media voices are suggesting that with Bibi still in power: “peace for the Palestinians will now be impossible” … “world peace is now more threatened because of Bibi’s re-election” … “the Palestinian State will now form in the UN without Israel’s input, because the global community has the authority to correct this ‘great injustice against the Palestinian people’, if the Israelis will not do it.” It sound to me like the God of Israel will have to LOUDLY state His opinion of those threats very soon. Another part of the negative ferment about Israel (as a result of Bibi’s win) involves the Jewish people in the Diaspora (outside of Israel). Many of the Jews that live in the nations are minimally connected to Israel. They are more likely to be secular or humanist in their worldview … and often (due to the social justice priorities of Reform Judaism and the total seculars) more of them are pro-Palestinian. Many of these blind Jews are supporting BDS campaigns against Israel, and criticizing the Israelis for again choosing Bibi. Interestingly, though, the countries of Saudi Arabia and Jordan are breathing a personal sigh of relief that Bibi is back on top. He is the only present leader, who is taking the proper stance on Iran. The reality is that Iran is threatening these Arab nations with nuclear attacks as well as Israel. They need Israel to go after Iran and deal with the problem since the West is unwilling to do so. Al-Sisi of Egypt is probably pleased that Bibi is still PM, due to his unified stance with him against Hamas and the Moslem Brotherhood … and perhaps against Turkey. Problematic for al-Sisi will be Bibi’s declaration of NO PALESTINIAN STATE. Al-Sisi is in relationship with Abbas, and firmly believes that the Palestinian Authority needs to be given the Palestinian State declaration, and control of Gaza, soon. Handle all of this, Lord!
–Pray that Bibi will follow the course that YHVH sets for him and for Israel. NO COMPROMISE, even in the face of international pressure and threats.
–Pray that YHVH would personally deal with this ruse of a Palestinian State … putting it to rest once and for all with a firm, DIVINE, “NO!.”
–Pray for the EU to WAKE UP! The EU nations are walking on very thin ice with the Lord. They are very vulnerable to Islamic violence and take-over in their own nations. The position, which they are demanding Israel assume, might well become what they will experience in their own lands very quickly.
–Break the power of the negative decrees that have prophesied disaster for Israel and the world, because of Bibi being back in power, and because of his stance on the Palestinian State and Iran. Break their negative words in the NAME, BLOOD, and AUTHORITY OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH! Decree and declare that the Prince of Peace will come to Jerusalem to bring the greatest level of peace to Israel and to the world. Decree that the hand of YHVH will manifest through the leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu … and through the prosperity, victory, and testimony of the nation of Israel.
–Pray for the secular Jews … whether in Israel or in the Diaspora … to see clearly, and to come to an understanding of the truth about YHVH, about Israel, and about WHO THEY ARE AS JEWS. Lord, forgive them for their opposition to Your word, and to Your nation. Wake them up and teach them!
–Pray for the Lord to clearly lead Bibi in all dealings with ANY Arab nations … particularly with Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Egypt. Pray for Bibi’s wisdom and discernment when dealing with all the nations … particularly with the USA and with Russia in these days.
–Now that the diplomatic moves against Israel in the UN, and in the International Criminal Court, are going to increase, pray that YHVH would lay the arrogant, accusing, controlling, and manipulating powers down on their faces. Make them irrelevant as they threaten Israel. Make THEM accountable, Lord!
–Pray that YHVH would personally deal with the Obama administration, and with the US State Dept. for their treachery against Israel and her leader. Have mercy on the people of the USA, Lord! Remember the leaders of Congress, who have stood with Israel, and who have honored Benjamin Netanyahu!
I will be flying to Orlando tomorrow for meetings, so need to cut this writing short in order to pack and to prepare. Before I sign off, though, I want to alert you to two major things that are about to take place.
#1: This Friday is the midpoint in the Shemitah year. It is also the first day of the Hebrew biblical calendar New Year, Nissan 1. It is also the day of the Spring Solstice, as well as the day of a total eclipse of the sun. I don’t have the time to deeply review the significance of all these “coincidences” occurring on one day. Suffice it to say, this set of events has never before happened before in human history. The total eclipse of the sun will take place at 12:18 PM (Jerusalem time, 10:18 GMT, 6:18 AM Eastern time) this Friday; putting the North Pole into total blackness for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that the North Pole is a representative of all the nations, because it is international property, owned by no nation. Keep in mind that a solar eclipse usual portends a danger or a judgment upon the nations of the world (excluding Israel). The Lord could be sending us a significant warning this Friday. Please consider standing silently in prayer for confession, repentance, and declaration of YHVH’s absolute sovereignty over the whole world during those two minutes of total darkness occurring at the North Pole. There will be a group of people standing at the Wailing Wall at that exact time; declaring Isaiah 11:9. Please join them:
“None will harm or destroy another on My entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the LORD as the sea is filled with water.”

#2: The world’s largest Hadron Particle Accelerator … CERN … is about to be restarted at double power after two years of being upgraded. The global elite have supposedly built this mammoth underground thing in Europe to re-create the Big Bang theory, and to explore dark matter. It is to be restarted on Monday, March 23rd. These scientists (and those, who fund the project) are acting like the builders of the Tower of Babel. They are messing in YHVH’s business, and potentially putting the world physically and spiritually at risk. New Age, and occultic rituals have been taking place at the underground site. It has been suggested that portals to other worlds may be opened … and it appears that those, who are in league with the dark kingdom are seeking to open up a portal from the pit. Prominent scientists are making warning statements about firing up of this machine. It could impact the magnetic fields and the crust stability of the planet. It is a great unknown. If you want to explore more about it, take some time scanning the internet, but avoid some of the first listings you will find on your search engine. The “powers at be” are trying to feed the people their version of what is taking place, so ask the Lord what sites you should inspect. Here is one to start:
CERN’s Move To Restart Large Hadron Collider At Double Power Reignites Doomsday Fears
Given that we have this set of events taking place on Friday, and then this CERN start-up on Monday … with a blood moon to take place on Passover, the 3-4th of April … I believe we need to be praying. This all sounds like science fiction, but the way that the dark kingdom has been boldly making inroads into our cultural values/practices, morals and beliefs … and through such atrocities as ISIS … I believe we need to seek the instruction of the Lord for how we need to prepare, and how we are to stand in this hour. No fear! Satan always tries to push the envelop to doomsday. YHVH will lead us in how to raise up a counter-effect if this is necessary.
NOTE: I believe the Lord has been taking loudly through nature since yesterday. A solar storm was projected to give the earth a glancing blow of plasma sometime today (Wed.). It was expected to be a level 1 out of a possible 5 levels of severity. Interestingly the solar blast surprised the scientists by arriving 24 hours early (10 AM Tuesday) … making a DIRECT HIT … and reaching level 4. SURPRISE! YHVH is sending a G-MAIL! The solar blast messed up the magnetic fields, altered the GPS readings, messed with communication signals, and froze up internet transmissions. It was just a reminder that the election yesterday had YHVH’s full attention. WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF ANYTHING GLOBAL. HE IS!
We got the memo … now we just have to remember what is said.
