MEDITATE ON ZECHARIAH 12:2-9
2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling (staggering, bewilderment, drunken destabilization) to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.
3 “It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.
4 “In that day,” declares the LORD, “I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.
5 “Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘A strong support for us are the inhabitants of Jerusalem through the LORD of hosts, their God.’
6 “In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples, while the inhabitants of Jerusalem again dwell on their own sites in Jerusalem.
7 “The LORD also will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem will not be magnified above Judah.
8 “In that day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who bis feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the LORD before them.
9 “And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
**Pray that YHVH would WAKE UP King Abdullah, and warn him of the danger he now faces.
**Pray for YHVH to judge Abbas, Tibbi, and all those, who stir up the nations in hatred against Israel through blatant lies and misrepresentations.
**Pray that the Lord would cause al-Aksa and the Dome of the Rock to be crushed by His own hand.
**Pray that He will demonstrate where His footstool actually stands on the earth. Pray that He will put His foot down on that footstool for all to see.
**Pray that the leadership of Israel, and all the people of Israel will be strong and courageous in the face of these horrible threats and wrongful accusations/false claims.
**Pray that the security forces of Israel would continue to protect the people and the city … and their own lives … without hesitation in the face of mortal threats. Disregard the threats and lies of their enemies, and stand in truth … stand alone if necessary!
**Pray that the Lord would raise up a multitude of intercessors on behalf of Jerusalem throughout the world.
**Pray that the weight of this city would increase against all, who would try to transfer it into the possession of Islamic or Global Elite ownership.
**Pray that the plans of Abbas, and that of all Israel’s enemies, will backfire on them.
Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has just returned from a visit with Putin in Russia to prevent misunderstandings. As more sophisticated weapons are being sent into Syria by Russia, in support of Assad, Iranian backed Hizbullah is gaining access to them. The threat to Israel is increasing. In addition, as more Russian troops are coming into Syria to fight the rebels, who are seeking to topple Assad, it becomes more likely that any defensive move by Israel against Hizbullah, ISIS, or others in the conflict could cause the accidental death of some Russians. Bibi and Putin are working out a way to avoid that, as well as an understanding that if any Russians are accidently killed by Israelis, in an operation against Hizbullah, (Assad’s ally) that it wouldn’t be accounted as an act of war by Israel against Russia. Part of the conversations in Moscow could have also included items involving Iran; such as Russia’s provision of more high tech centrifuges to help Iran create more powerful isotopes more quickly … or possibly the matter of the sale of Russia’s missile defense system to protect the Iranian nuclear facilities. The meetings between the two men also included military leadership personnel from both countries. The details have not been made public, but I suspect that Bibi made a wise decision when he asked for this meeting. Time will tell us what was accomplished, if anything. Putin is a power broker, and a man, who wants to control. However, there is some indication that he lacks the level of anti-Semitism that the current White House now holds.
**Pray that the Lord would keep His hands upon Putin; moving him wherever he wants him, and containing him against going wherever the Lord does not want him to go.
**Pray that they Lord would protect against any accident or action in Syria, which would bring forth a threat from Russia against Israel … that is until the Lord calls such a conflict forth to fulfill His word.
**Pray that Israel will not hesitate to attack Hizbullah or other threats in Syria, if her security demands it.
**Pray that if Russia is alerted to whatever Israel might do in Syria, that the information is not passed on to Hizbullah or to her other enemies.
Watch out for the Pope this week in regard to Israel!!
As Pope Francis meets with Obama in the White House on Yom Kippur, the outlined discussions are to center around the challenges of illegal immigration, the issues of climate change management and control, and the redistribution of wealth. But that isn’t the worst of it. The Pope also plans to come out in support of the Iran deal set up by Obama, as well as the establishment of a Palestinian State in the immediate future. To top off the bad news, the Pope is promoting an anti-nuclear agreement in the Middle East, which would call for the exposure of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and disarming it. This man will be taking his agenda of “peace” to the joint session of both houses of Congress on Thursday, and to the UN General Assembly on Friday. Watch to see adoring crowds gathering to hail Pope Francis as a “prince of peace”, and as the anointed leader to bring forth a global religion that will be able to embrace all religions. We are living in critical days. Will the Palestinian State be prospered during this sessions of the UN General Assembly? Will the US apply its veto if a resolution is presented, or will the Obama administration make a good excuse for not applying it … such as: France will now take the lead in the Middle East peace negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel, because the US has been unable to move things forward … therefore the US will no longer stand in the way of the will of the rest of the nations.
**Ask for the Lord’s forgiveness for masses of Christians being duped and idolatrous toward this Pope.
*If this is the time to bring forth the fulfillment of the prophesies about the global false prophet, pray that the true believers will be wise and discerning.
**Pray that the Lord would direct the conversations between Francis and Obama … and that He would reveal to the public anything that they intended to remain secret.
**Pray for the deceived Jews to wake up to the threat of this Pope and his agenda. He does not have the welfare of Israel in his priorities or plans.
**Pray to bind down the mesmerizing witchcraft that accompanies this man, which blinds the people.
**Pray that the Lord would use this Pope for His purposes; hemming him in, so that he cannot fulfill his desires without the expressed permission of the Lord.
**Pray that Israel would never be exposed or disarmed militarily … nor agree to it for ANY reason.
**Pray that the Lord would direct all movement and development regarding a Palestinian State.
**Pray that Israel, which is being put into a huge trap, would be sprung free by the hand of the Lord.
**Pray that the spiritual leaders and political leaders in Israel would not be sucked into serving the agenda of this Pope … nor trust his word and affections.
**Pray that the media would stop treating Francis as a rock star or as a messiah for the world community. Expose him completely, as well as the full agenda that satan is running here.
