Yehovah God: #1 Zionist

18 07 2018

Zionist 2.jpg

Let’s start with the heart. God loves Israel and we are in a new day prophetically regarding Israel as a nation. Later I will explain more about the Holocaust, but three years after that horrific event, God turned a page of history from judging Israel to blessing, favoring and restoring Israel. Understanding why He did this is to understand His love for Zion. Most people, even Christians, don’t have a clue about Zion. It has been obscured and maligned. Yet, Zion is a key to grasping God’s choice of Israel.

A hundred years ago, the word Zion was a positive word sung in many of our hymns, like: “We’re marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion; we’re marching upward to Zion, the beautiful city of God.” They named churches, schools, towns, and even a national park after Zion, but not so much anymore. The meaning of the word has been sullied and made into a curse word. Anti-Israel propaganda has changed the public perception of the word. No wonder, when it is now used like this: Dirty Zionist, Zionist pigs, Zionist apes, Zionist liars, Zionist occupiers, imperialist Zionists, and racist Zionists. Whew! With this avalanche of epithets, no wonder the average person is confused. Even within Israel there is confusion. In the 2015 election two liberal parties joined together with a new name: The Zionist Camp. The problem is that they were the party in favor of dividing the land and giving it to Palestinians.  A true Zionist knows the land cannot be divided. What a shame that they twisted the meaning of Zionist to gain votes. Fortunately, the Israeli people were not fooled and the real Zionists won in a landslide. We really need to know God’s definition.

Yehovah also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; ​​the heavens and earth will shake; ​​But Yehovah will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. ​​“So you shall know that I am Yehovah your God, dwelling in Zion My holy mountain.” Joel 3:16-17a

Here are the topics of a few of the 150 verses about Zion in the Bible: King on Zion – God dwells in Zion – Captives return to Zion – Zion joy of whole earth – Born in Zion – Favor Zion – Rule from Zion – God rests in Zion – ​Salvation in Zion – Ransomed return to Zion – ​Ask way to Zion – Trumpet in Zion – Law and word from Zion – Zeal for Zion – Cornerstone in Zion. (Today’s blog is an excerpt from my book Blessing Israel.)

Therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily. Isaiah 28:16

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Speak to the Dirt!: The Way of God in the Resurrection of Israel by [Lawrence, Les]

Here is a way to read the first few chapters for free. Click here to download the free Kindle App for IOS, Android, Mac and/or PC; and then click here for the free sample of Speak to the Dirt! Notice that it is not the Kindle Unlimited box in gold, but the blue box a little further down on the left which says: “Send a free sample.” Thanks. Enjoy!

Why would God command a man to speak to dirt? Yet “Prophesy!” is the command that the Lord Yehovah gave to Ezekiel. Its force is no less urgent today. End time prophecy regarding Israel is being fulfilled before our very eyes and the church needs to understand what God is doing in the Promised Land today. 
A tremendous ingathering of souls is taking place all over the world. This is even more significant when considering the physical and spiritual ingathering of the Jewish people. In this book you will see how the events in Israel reflect the Fulfillment of God’s plan, the coming of the Messiah!
“The spotlight of history is not held in man’s hand but in the hand of God. He is the Director of the Final Act – He will do precisely what he has always said he would do!” (Excerpt from Speak to the Dirt! by Les Lawrence)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!

Compromise?

10 07 2018

Compromise

“I think you’re always going to have tension in the middle east when there’s people who want to kill the Jews and Jews who don’t want to be killed and neither side is willing to compromise.” 

(The above quote is from Frank J. Fleming)

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 3:14-22

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Not. Making. This. Up.

Iran general cloud theft

Iranian general says Israel stealing Iran’s clouds – An Iranian general on Monday accused Israel of manipulating weather to prevent rain over the Islamic republic, alleging his country was facing cloud “theft,” before being contradicted by the nation’s weather chief. The head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization claims Israel is ‘working to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,’ insisting this was confirmed by an Iranian scientific study; but head of Iran’s meteorological service says ‘it is not possible for a country to steal clouds.’ Ynet News

It has been a busy week…thought it was a good weekend for a “you can’t make this stuff up” blog. This really is a true story, reported all over the world media. The good news is that it is further evidence that cracks in Iran’s terrorist state are getting wider.

As Protests Multiply, Is Iran On Verge Of Revolution? – Mideast: While the U.S. remains focused on immigration and a Supreme Court vacancy, Iran is in the middle of a major social convulsion that’s verging on a revolution. Last time this happened, President Obama ignored it. This time, the U.S. supports those in the streets. Investor’s Business Daily

Iran’s Persistent Protests – Iranians are protesting in the streets again, only a few months after the regime crushed nationwide demonstrations over the country’s sagging economy and widespread corruption. The periodic eruptions are a sign of discontent that may spread as the pressure from renewed U.S. sanctions increases. Wall Street Journal July 3, 2018

This follows the Biblical principle of Yehovah God causing the enemies of Israel to fight each other. You see this in Jehosophat’s victory and also in Gideon’s victory. This is the means of victory even in the Psalm 83 War where we are instructed to pray that God would deal with Israel’s enemies as He did with the Midianites in Gideon’s day.

Deal with them as with Midian, as with Sisera, as with Jabin at the Brook Kishon, who perished at En Dor, who became as refuse on the earth. ​​Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said, “Let us take for ourselves the pastures of God for a possession.” Psalm 83:9-12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Hypocrisy in the News

3 07 2018

Dry Bone chicken

So Sarah Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen Restaurant because she works for President Trump. But leftists demand that a baker must make a cake for a wedding they don’t agree with for a gay couple. Double standard hypocrisy.

Another example from the southwest border – People are (almost literally) up in arms about children separated from their parents who have broken the law. This happens every day with citizens in America. If  a parent has a child with them while being arrested in the committing of a crime, they are separated. The child is taken to Child Protective Services. Double standard hypocrisy.

Now let’s get really serious. How many leftists are up in arms about the 60 million babies who are separated from their parents through abortion while still in their mother’s womb? Double standard hypocrisy.

If you watch one hour of news a week you probably know more examples. Logic, reason, discussion, and truth are out of fashion. Just demand your own way regardless of laws or civil order; or even despite not owning citizenship. Double standard hypocrisy.

Diverse weights are an abomination to Yehovah, and dishonest scales are not good. Proverbs 20:23

In transgressing and lying against Yehovah, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.  ​​Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. ​​So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Isaiah 59:13-15

We must wake up, stand up and speak up! If we don’t, who will? If not now, when? Are you willing to stand for truth even if you “make yourself a prey?” Now is the time.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and America; and pray for rain.

Fascist or Anti-Fascist? The Question

29 06 2018

Winston Churchill

The uncanny accuracy of Churchill’s “prophecy” is now unfolding in our American society. There is a violent anarchist movement today called Antifa. Do you know what that stands for? Anti-fascists. They enter peaceful protests and violence erupts by design. Anarchy is their philosophy and violence is their method.

Fascism has a wide variety of definitions, but let’s focus on one common trait… violence to impose the will of the state against the freedom of individuals. When conformity is not obtained by reason, it is imposed through violence. The only official definition of fascism is from WWII Italian dictator Benito Mussolini:

1.”Everything in the state”. The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompassing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator. 
2.”Nothing outside the state”. The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government. 
3.”Nothing against the state“. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens. 

The United States Constitution stands as a beacon for individual rights and a standard for the world to emulate. Yet, today these liberties are under attack both on university campuses where conservatives are shouted down, and in the streets where peaceful protests more and more end in violence.

Suppression of dissenting viewpoints is spreading in our culture from town councils to social media censorship and blacklisting. This is the opposite of our founding documents which are based on our Judeo/Christian roots, ultimately derived from the Bible. This is the philosophy of leftists that dominate our pop culture. A clear example of their error is  their insistence on open borders, which is anti-Biblical:

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellingsActs 17:26

Globally, this is also evident in the Sharia system of total control of the individual by the state/religion. I have often stated that communism would have conquered the world but for one flaw: godless atheism. There was never that religious fervor unto death that characterizes radical Islam. Even many Muslims reject the radicalism, but it is in the DNA of Islam’s total control. Islam means submission, but not the way the Bible teaches. Biblical submission is voluntary; but Islamic submission is imposed, even by the sword: Submit or die! Bible believers choose life and then live in freedom.

We rejoice that millions of former Muslims have found that Jesus is the Son of God. There is a cosmic spiritual battle for the souls of men. One side brings liberation and freedom, the other slavery and bondage. In the end, it is not about the philosophy, but in a relationship with the loving God Yehovah who is a Father, through the intentional sacrifice of His own Son as the payment for our sin. His voluntary sinless death as the Lamb of God purchased our salvation for this life and for eternity.

So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:42-45 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and pray for rain.

Damascus on the Bubble

26 06 2018

Damascus syria-air-strike-damage-5 - April 2018Once again prophecy comes into focus about the capital of Syria. Events this weekend again raise the question of when will the Isaiah 17 prediction be fulfilled? Damascus has been the capital city of various nations continuously for over 5,000 years. And it has never been destroyed. Jerusalem has been destroyed at least eleven times in history, but Damascus not once. Yet here is the word of God clearly foretelling the complete end of Damascus as an inhabited city.

The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.Isaiah 17:1

Pro-Assad troops take over Golan UN post in demilitarized area on Israeli border – IDF hints it may act to remove soldiers by force, noting the new position marks a violation of the post-1973 separation of forces agreement. Forces loyal to the regime of Syrian strongman Bashar Assad took control of an abandoned UN post in the no-man’s land between the Israeli and Syrian areas of the Golan Heights, Israel’s Kan public broadcaster reported on Sunday.

Report: Israeli missiles fall near Damascus airport – Syrian TV reports two Israeli missiles fell in the vicinity of the Damascus international airport. The head of monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman, told AFP that “the Israeli missiles hit arms depots for Hezbollah near the airport.”

Each time there is an escalation between Israel and Syria it increases the inevitable fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1. Syria taking over the abandoned UN station in the buffer area moves them closer to the Israeli border. This will not be allowed to stand by Israel.

As the tensions rise and fall on the border we should pray for protection for the IDF troops, but especially for the civilians on both sides of the border. Most are Druse on both sides who are caught in the crossfire. The Syrian army is making major moves into the triangle borders with Israel and Jordan. Pray for wisdom for all the leaders. One thing is for sure. God’s purpose will be accomplished because His word never fails.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
