Trump 8 / Media 0

14 10 2017

Trump at Value Voters Summit 2017

If you are keeping score, this week it was President Trump with eight wins and the media with zero. Hollywood was caught knee deep in scandals and infighting to further frustrate the left. But, let’s look at the wins for the Administration.

  1. Trump ended coal power plant restrictions (CPP)
  2. Stopped illegal subsidies in Obama Care
  3. Enacted market-based health insurance reforms
  4. Declined to certify Iran deal
  5. Exited UNESCO over anti-Semitism
  6. Welcomed Pakistan freed hostages
  7. Goodell backed down on the National Football League anthem fight.
  8. Confirmed that the Department of Defense (DOD) severed all ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), scrubbing SPLC training from DOD manuals.

Not a bad week for the good guys. God really answered the intercessors in DC last week at Rise Up/The Call at the Mall. We must keep praying for our government with the same passion with which we pray for Israel. Here is a great intercessors site: Capital Hill Prayer Partners 

In addition, President Trump told the Value Voters Summit that “We must worship God, not government.”

Remember to keep praying for abundant rains to break the drought in northern Israel and fill up the Sea of Galilee.

“He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful.
In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows.”
Isaiah 30:23 NIV

Let Israel Rains Begin

11 10 2017

Rain in Israel

Thirsty Sea of Galilee sinking toward lowest level ever recorded – Days before tens of thousands of Israelis descend on the Sea of Galilee for the Sukkot holiday, the Water Authority warned that the freshwater lake is at dangerously low levels and expected to reach “the lowest level ever recorded.”

 

The Lord woke me early Monday morning and led me to pray for rain for Israel. Later Monday, my friend Rob Brown, shared the news from Israel of a surprising early rainstorm. It was an answer to my prayers (and prayers of many others, I am sure). I was elated to be used so directly in intercession. It encouraged me to pray for abundant rains to come and refill the Sea of Galilee. Please let it be a word for you as well to pick up the burden to break the drought in Israel.

Ask Yehovah for rain in the time of the latter rain.
Yehovah will make flashing clouds;
He will give them showers of rain,
Grass in the field for everyone. Zechariah 10:1

Water flow into Sea of Galilee at lowest level in a century

150 rescued near Dead Sea as first rain hits Israel 

Pray for rain and for the peace of Jerusalem!

You Have An Appointment with God

4 10 2017

IMG_1824blue

We have now entered the final Fall feast, the Feast of Tabernacles. This is the seventh feast and is calling all Jews and also Christians (which I like to call former Gentiles). Most people don’t know that the word “feast” is a wrong translation. The Hebrew word used means “appointment”. It makes a big difference to change from a big party, to an actual appointment with Yehovah.

These seven appointments are listed in Leviticus 23. There are really eight, if you include the Sabbath Day, designed to give God’s creation a day to rest and hang out with Him. Here is a quick outline of the seven appointments. (Here is a link to my radio interview where I spend 10 minutes on each appointment: Radio link ). The first four have already been fulfilled in the ministry of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

  1. Passover/Pesach – blood of lamb on doorpost/Jesus Lamb of God.
  2. Unleavened Bread- no leaven symbolizing sin/Jesus was sinless.
  3. Firstfruits – celebrates the early harvest of wheat/Jesus raised from the dead.
  4. Pentecost/Shavuot – celebrates summer harvest with leavened bread/Jesus body of redeemed sinners.
  5. Trumpets/Yom Teruah – celebrates the end of harvest/Jesus Second Coming!
  6. Atonement/Yom Kippur – Day of repentance/Jesus pronounces us clean.
  7. Tabernacles/Sukkot – Looking back to tabernacle in the wilderness/Looking forward to our eternal dwelling place with our Father Yehovah and Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

“In addition to the Sabbath, these are Yehovah’s appointed festivals, the official days for holy assembly that are to be celebrated at their proper times each year.” Leviticus 23:4 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Vicious Violence in Vegas

3 10 2017
Moment of Silence at WH Vegas shooting

The first lady & Pres. Trump on the south lawn of the White House for the moment of silence.

What a month! Three hurricanes and now this vicious violence in Vegas. Is there anything in the Bible that speaks to all this? Yes, indeed. Take a look at this:

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:1-5,12-13

Are all people basically good? I think not. Because of the fall of Adam we are all bent toward sin. It takes the supernatural mercy, grace and forgiveness of Yehovah God to turn things around for each of us. This “turning” is called repentance. Since Jesus, the Messiah, became God’s payment for our sin, we are free to live for God. Hallelujah!

My prayer for the grieving families in Vegas is that they would look up from the darkness of despair and find the Light of the World in Jesus. He is free to all who call on His Name, and He comforts all who mourn.

Shalom, shalom.

Must See Viral UN Video

29 09 2017

EPIC MOMENT: U.N. stunned, Palestinian delegates in shock, as UN Watch brings surprise guest speaker—Palestinian Mosab Hassan Yousef—to expose PLO lies. Watch heads turn & eyes bulge! Over 2 million views (UNWatch)

If you have not seen this video, please watch. This is a former member of Hamas (son of a Hamas founder) who became a Christian in 1999.

Seldom, if ever, has such a clear declaration of truth about the Palestinian Authority and the PLO been spoken, especially at the UN. If you have not read my book, Simple Islam, it is now available on Kindle and I suggest you read it for clarity about Islam.

We always pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but we also pray for the salvation of Muslims. Some of the most joyful believers you will ever meet are ex-Muslims who have experienced the love and forgiveness of Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus the Son of God.

Forgiven Much – Love Much If you want your faith to take off like a 747 jet, then meditate on this verse from Luke 7:47

“I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” Luke 7:47

Yom Kippur, the Day Atonement for Sin begins tonight at sundown. We can all pause to thank our Heavenly Father for the merciful forgiveness provided through the Messiah.

May you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a sweet and wonderful year to come.

Terror Murder in Israel

26 09 2017

 

victims of terror

Today, a West Bank Palestinian, with a work permit for Israel, murdered three Israelis (one was an Arab Israeli citizen). He killed the three guards at an Israeli checkpoint. He had been cleaning house for one Israeli customer for two and a half years.  His own house was upper middle class.  He also announced on Facebook (above photo) that he wanted his terrorist pension to be given to his wife. What does this tell us?

  1. This was pre-meditated murder/terror.
  2. It was not done because he lived in poverty.
  3. It was planned well in advance.
  4. He boasted of it on Facebook.
  5. Facebook was his last will and testament.
  6. He banked on the policy of the Palestinian Authority to pay a lifetime salary to his wife for his “martyrdom.”

So, when did murder get defined as martyrdom? The answer is: 1,500 years ago with the birth of Islam. Have you noticed the difference between Christian and Muslim martyrdom? For Christians and Jews, it is simply because they exist. They are hunted down by obedient, observant Muslims and killed. As for Muslims, they initiate the violence as the perpetrators. Yet, in the perverse anti-Christ religion of the Koran, they get glory and eternal rewards for killing infidels. The Palestinians have added a new wrinkle by including millions of dollars in their budget to pay terrorists in prison and their families in the most perverse form of “welfare.” This has become a murder mill for hire. And Israel is supposed to negotiate with these monsters?

This evil criminal was not a “freedom fighter” as they are called by the PA and Hamas. This perversion of terms must be exposed. Yet, he will probably have a street or a soccer field named after him. Seriously, that is what they will do. It is a culture of death.

Here is a report added since I first posted this story…

Facebook page of Abbas’ Fatah movement praises terrorist who murdered 3 Israelis, calls terrorist a ‘Martyr.’

We must stand for truth, love truth and speak up to the propaganda. This same blight on humanity is spreading across the Western world and is coming to America.

My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Yehovah; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. ​For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You. The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; ​Yehovah abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Lead me, O Yehovah, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face. Psalm 5:3-8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the families of the true martyrs.

Waiting for the Last Trumpet!

22 09 2017

Dry bones Messiah

YOM TERUAH! We are at the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles. Today we are hearing the Sounding of the Trumpets, which is Yom Teruah, the first Fall Feast. In light of all the signs in the heavens, the wars and rumors of wars, and the terrible natural disasters, it is good to lift up our eyes to the Heavens. Our redemption is closer than ever.

And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. Matthew 24:6-8 NLT

“Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28 NKJV

It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 NLT

There are many believers who sincerely believe Jesus may come this weekend. Personally, I think there are a few more prophesies to be fulfilled, like Isaiah 17. However, I could be wrong, so my lamp is trimmed and ready!

One time I was musing out loud, in a message I was preaching, that the times of great tribulation would be a wonderful time to share the Messiah. After I was finished, Doreen made me promise to go on the first load. So, I always “stay ready.” Maybe it will be decades before the great appearing of our Lord and Savior, but we stay alert and watching.

Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near. James 5:7-8 NLT

The servants who are ready and waiting for his return will be rewarded. I tell you the truth, he himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat! Luke 12:37 NLT

(Today’s posting was inspired by my grand-niece-in-law, Sam Gardner of Sandpoint, Idaho. Thank you, Sam, for your Facebook post.)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
