I Still love Israel! Grateful for USA!

I Love Israel, and Jerusalem, the City of God!

I wrote this way back in 2013, but I still love Israel after having spent the summer there this year.

Jerusalem sketch
“Typed in the word, Jerusalem in On-line Bible today. Phew, sure received a download from heaven, as I read the almost 800 verses with the word Jerusalem in it. God is going to honor His covenant with Jerusalem, it’s His hometown…
1Ki_11:13 Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen.
1Ki_11:36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.
1Ki_15:4 Nevertheless for David’s sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:
1Ch_23:25 For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever:

Jerusalem wall
Ezr_7:19 The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem.
Ezr_7:27 Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king’s heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem:
Psa_135:21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
Isa_62:6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
Isa_62:7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
Jer_3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.
Jer_17:25 Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.
Eze_5:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.
Mic_4:8 And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
Mat_5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
Luk_24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Jerusalem lion
Joe_3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
Mic_4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Psa_122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Well, last night, I fell in love with Israel all over again, with the cry of my heart singing: ‘next year in Jerusalem!’ I have not yet been there, and I long to walk the land, where Jesus walked, and have fallen in love with the Jewish people, all over again. Yes, our church hosts, ‘A Night to Honor Israel’ only once a year, in conjunction with the Jewish community here in Tulsa, but my love for the land of Israel, its people, and more importantly, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, grows more passionate each year, as I learn of Him through His Word. If someone out there wants to bless my house, send me to Israel!

Well, now I have been there! Spent almost 4 weeks there this summer. I still love Israel, but after seeing the face of Hamas and radical Islam, we literally knelt down in Chicago at the airport, and thanked God for the United States of America, and the freedom we enjoy here.

Jerusalem
Let’s pray:
‘Father, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and Your blessing on Israel, again, today, as I do every day. I am grateful that You love me as I love Your people and the land, and that You bless me according to Your Word, that I prosper, simply because I bless Israel, and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Thank you Lord Jesus for this privilege, Amen!”

Praying for America – Hidden Things Revealed – Truth revealed

Praying for America Hidden things to be revealed. Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. Isa 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not […]

Praying for America Hidden things to be revealed.

pray America
Here are some great verses to bring before Gods throne in prayer today:

Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Father, please give us treasures out of darkness, and hidden riches from secret places today, that it might be known that you are the God of the United States of America.

Isa 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

Father, there are inventions, things of heaven, inventions, technologies, water production, mineral rights, food production systems, business wisdom, and administrative processes that will bring glory to Your name in this nation. We are blessed, but need Your grace, strength, and wisdom to know how to best implement your grace to see this nation prospered, at peace, and light to the other nations of the earth.

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Father, there is hidden wisdom in your heart and mind, that we seek. We need You, and ask for Your knowledge, insight, and creative problem solving ability.

1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

2Co 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

Father, may we do right, honestly, uprightly, free from lies, deception, and guile. Deliver us from our own way, from the dishonest and crafty ways of wicked people. We we work together with a clear conscience before God and all men. Where we have lied, cheated, violated trusts and confidences, forgive us, and have mercy upon us. Teach us to do right in Your sight, individually, and as a nation. Bless us, so that we can be a blessing to the nations of the earth.

As we proceed toward National Day of Prayer, these are the verses I feel impressed to pray:

That God will reveal to us hidden things:

1. Hidden keys of knowledge to dismantle and destroy works and roots of darkness.

2. Hidden keys of wisdom to know what to do, to see the kingdom of God advance and be restored in the United States of America.

3. That God reveal the very motives of men’s hearts, the agendas of godless men, intent on destroying this country, and that He, Himself destroy them: Ps 112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish. That these very desires perish, and that God change both the hearts of men and leadership here, or, if nessesary, the leadership itself, that the government be righteous, holy, and fully under the Lordship of Jesus.

4. That the Lord come, and reveal the hidden things of dishonesty and iniquity, and that by manifestation of the truth, these be destroyed and cleansed from our land.

5. That the Godly agenda voted in by, be implemented, that obstacles be removed to forward progress in righteousness.

6. That wicked people be removed from authority, and that legislation and decisions made against God’s will, be washed from this nation.

7. That God protect President Trump, his family, and every government official. That God give them strength to drain the swamp, eliminate abortion, destroy racism, and to promote and provide economic prosperity and jobs for all Americans. That inventions and energy technologies that will honestly bless this nation be implemented, immediately – that barriers to their use be removed.

8. That God move on and for native Americans, healing this land from broken treaties, and historic genocide and atrocities. That God make a way for natives to prosper and grow in wisdom and knowledge, to implement ways to heal this land.

9. That God give wisdom on water usage. That He would bring clean water into the desert of this continent.

Postcards of Prayer!

1 Timothy 2 (NASB)

A Call to Prayer

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in [a]authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and [b]dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the [c]knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

This is the verse read at President Trump’s inaugeration, and then preached powerfully at the national prayer breakfast by Rear Admiral Barry Black (Ret), Senate Chaplain – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr9sCtJ61_8

The Enemy’s attack against this administration is relentless!  As we discussed in our Thursday meeting recently, a postcard attack against President Trump is planned for the White House for March 15, which is the Ides of March.  This attack of pink post cards is to commemorate the assassination of Julius Caesar on March 15 in 44 B.C.!!!  It is to tell Donald Trump that he is fired and that they have assassination in mind if he doesn’t leave the Presidency!!!

But greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world, and we can do a preemptive counter attack by praying and also by sending our own postcards of support, prayer, and love to the White House!  I’ve got to mine ready to mail later today!  How about all of you Battle Cry warriors???  Let’s join our fellow believers in this regard:

Starting Now through March 14 – Let’s Flood the White House
With Post Cards of Prayer!

by Jane Hansen Hoyt, Edmonds, WA
“A Call to Action! Starting Now through March 14 – Let’s Flood the White House With Post Cards of Prayer!”
We know that we walk as Esthers in the earth. We know that since the beginning, women function under a mandate that exposes every evil plot of the enemy. While we were in DC recently, we learned of such a hideous plot called the Ides of March that has a dedicated Facebook page.

Those currently involved in resisting the new administration have targeted March 15th as a day to send President Trump a postcard expressing their opposition to him. Their plan is to overwhelm him with pink postcards symbolic of the pink slip that a person is given when fired. They plan to overwhelm the postal service by sending cards that contain hate-filled messages. Such as, Sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your sincerest ill-wishes can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin.

Queen Esther wrote a new decree that trumped the one previously written.

I am asking you to begin sending in postcards to President Trump that simply say, “I am praying for you.”

President Trump said those were the most meaningful words that he heard while on the campaign trail. And with the current atmosphere of chaos and insanity in our nation, I want him to know that there is a worldwide army that is supporting him in prayer.

I ask that you share this opportunity with your friends, your family, at your workplace, and with your church.

Start NOW sending your cards of support, but also – let us all send one on March 14th (the day before) to counter the Ides of March plot.

The address to send your post cards is:

President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Washington, DC 20500

The Word of God tells us that we are to pray for all those in authority. I’m asking you to lay aside your personal, political views and join together for the good of our nation.

Let’s counter the hate with grace and love. Let’s flood Heaven with prayer and the White House with cards and letters for such a time as this!

Go to Church! Your Nation depends upon it!

Go to church, Restore your nation Jer 13:16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness. 17 But if ye will not hear it, […]

Go to church, Restore your nation

go-to-church

Jer 13:16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORD’S flock is carried away captive.

Hear the heart of Jeremiah here, the one Bible scholars call, ‘the weeping prophet’. He sees God, and sees the people of God rebelling against Him, in pride going their own way.

Note for intercessors, the only way to bring down a spirit of pride, is with an opposite spirit, a spirit of humility. Jesus did it with His disciples, setting the eternal example of servant-hearted leadership, for all generations, He washed His disciples feet. Jeremiah too, has found a secret place, away from the eyes of men, to weep.

Why? He sees the inevitable consequences of their rebellion, captivity and bondage.

Over the past couple years, as I have spent time simply walking around and meeting new people here in Tulsa, I have discovered an amazing ignorance of the things of God in the people I have met.

They seem like nice enough folks, but out of the heart, the mouth speaks. I ask them where they go to church, and they tell me that they used to attend church, but…and then come the stories….

Yes, horrible things have happened in churches, simply because fallen, broken, sinful people attend them, but we cannot allow the behavior of others, no matter how ‘spiritual’ they appear dictate our decision to obey God in attending a place of worship:

Proverbs 18:19

A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city, and quarreling is like the bars of a castle

Field of play

Pride is not just someone walking with their chest puffed out, strutting their stuff.

No, pride in God’s eyes, is deciding that our will is greater than His. Like we are smarter than He is….

The Bible says, GO TO CHURCH! Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

In these last days, it is not a time to be playing with God: tremendous prophetic events are occurring in the earth, and great consequences happen from both obedience, and disobedience.

The way I see it, you are either part of the solution, or part of the problem.

The solution is Jesus, His kingdom, power, and restoration through the establishment of His Word. His church, the bride, is the answer to this world, His kingdom extended through His people…

Yet, if you think you are too smart for God, that ignorance is bliss, think again.

Do not mistake God’s silence for permission or acceptance of your lifestyle. He loves you, but He is holy, and when the only word He could speak would be correction that He knows you will not hear, in His mercy, He is quiet, hoping you will, of your own volition, turn to Him. If He were to speak, His only word would be judgement upon your sin, and so, in mercy, He is silent.

If you won’t, of your own volition do what the Word clearly says: He remains faithful and true, but the withdrawing of His presence and blessing has very tangible consequences, like here in the nation of the United States of America, a 14 trillion dollar deficit. (At the end of FY 2016 the gross US federal government debt is estimated to be$19.4 trillion, according to the FY17 Federal Budget. )
american-jesusWe have prayed, and now have a President, and Vice President that understand this: God will make America great again, and this debt is nothing, before the Creator of the Universe – His righteousness will exalt America again, and blast this debt back into the hell that spawned it.

The church’s task with regard to the state which is posed for all time is thus clear. First, it must loyally give the state everything necessary to its existence. It has to oppose anarchy and all zealotism within its own ranks. Second, it has to fulfill the office of watchmen over the state. That means it must remain in principle critical towards every state and be ready to warn it against transgression of its legitimate limits. Third, it must deny to the state which exceeds it limits, whatever such a state demands that lies within the province of religio-ideological excess; and in its preaching, the church must courageously describe this excess as opposition to God.”

Oscar Cullman, The State in the N.T., pp. 90-91

No matter how great any of us are, God has instituted pastors and five-fold ministry that are faithful to HIS Word. This Word, properly articulated and applied, is the answer to every human need, both personally and nationally.
Come back to Jesus today. Find a good church. Find a place to serve and give something back. There is joy and eternal purpose in it.

Your nation depends upon it.

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, you see the state of the ‘church’ in my area. You know me, and all that has been done. Give me the courage to attend where You want me to attend, for Your sake, not the sake of the people there. Lead me, guide me, speak to me, and make a way, where there has been no way. In Your Name, I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

The Supernatural Blessing of Rain..

lessons-in-creation
As most of you know, we have spent many years walking among native americans, learning much about the movings and workings of God in North America, from a people close to Him and nature.
lived

Many times, in times of drought, we would witness prayer for rain, and it would rain, watering the earth, and causing life to again come forth.

We know how God caused a drought to come upon Israel and then Elijah prayed and rain came, in abundance.

Rain in Scripture, generally symbolizes God’s blessing upon the earth:

The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.

He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.

choni
There are many instances of God sending rain, throughout Jewish history. Here is an account given in my seminary reading from Dr. Young’s ‘Jesus the Jewish Theologian’, that I find edifying and comforting, the story of the Jewish rabbi known to be heard by God, and answered in rain: He is known as Choni the Circle Maker. Here is his story, from the Jewish legend:

http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/448345/jewish/Choni-the-Circle-Maker.htm

Is it any wonder then, that many native american tribes identify strongly with Israel, recognizing clearly that the Jesus we worship as Christians is Jewish, that His homeland is Israel, the land that He loves.
Yesterday, as Franklin Graham opened in prayer at President Donald Trumps inauguration, as President Trump took the platform, a gentle rain began to fall:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8CHxAoIcl4

I believe God has had mercy on the nation of America again, that as we again bless Israel, stop abortion and corruption, and do what is right before God, He will again bless this country.
rain-blessing
God has had mercy upon America again!

Now, we must recognize this great love towards us, and respond to heaven…
The change begins with me and you.

What can I do to make America great again?

What can you do?

What are areas of corruption that I have allowing in my life, my family?

What, today, will I do to eliminate these, to rise up to be the person of honor God has created me to be?

America Shall Be Saved!

America shall be saved!
america-saved

This is the verse given to our founding fathers, giving us the three branches of government. It is also a promise from God:

Isaiah 33:22 For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us.

Notice the last four words of that verse: HE WILL SAVE US!

Jesus is Lord over America!

He, Himself will save this nation!
America

Allah is not God, we are not too far gone.. He is Almighty God the Son…

He who flung the stars into being, Creator of the universe, is well able to save America!

He will fight for this nation!

So let call upon the Lord of heaven’s armies!

Ps 80:9 Turn us again to yourself, O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies.
Make your face shine down upon us.
Only then will we be saved.
national prayer
Let’s Pray:
‘Father in heaven, release the host of heaven to fight against darkness, deception and devils here in America today. We stand before heavens courts, praying the bowls of incense before your throne, the anguished prayers of your saints, be tipped today into answers, movings of Your great power, as Your mercy again triumphs over the judgments we deserve. Reveal Jesus once again to us, and turn our hearts by Your Spirit to fully obey You, that might truly turn from all evil, to be the people of honor, love and holiness You have redeemed us to become. I ask, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask again, in Your great name Lord Jesus!”
