On Our Faces and On Our Knees

“Don’t say your prayers! You must pray with all your might. That does not mean saying your prayers, or sitting gazing about in Church or chapel with eyes wide open while someone else says them for you. It means fervent, effectual, untiring wrestling with God…this kind of prayer be sure the devil and the world and your own indolent, unbelieving nature will oppose…”  –William Booth.
“…all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory” (Isaiah 45:24-25).
Be Prepared For An Emergency:
Recent events (i.e. the butchering of an Israeli family in Itamar, the bus stop bombing in Jerusalem at one of the busiest times of day and the unending cries, by the Palestinians and the entire Arab world, to save “Palestine” from the Jews) have proven that Israel may be on the edge of an emergency. As intercessors, it is our responsibility to recognize the harbingers before they happen! Israelis are bracing for a major war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the Arabs are now planning their own Palestinian state and to top it all off, they have been propagating their “rush on Jerusalem” and possible dates of war on Facebook. As someone said “all they have on their minds is to kill the Jews (and then the Christians).” Facebook Intifada pages abound. As soon as the scandalous announcements about another “Intifada” on Israel are removed, new ones are launched. Reports circulate that hundreds of Facebook pages still exist. The message is the same: “Arabs worldwide must begin their Jihad (holy war) and killing Jews is praiseworthy.”

The Spirit Of Defiance:
Islam’s hideous threats and mockery of the Jewish people are unending and to say these types of people are “heartless” is to be kind. Gaddafi called for Arab refugees to “March on Israel.” He also called for the Muslim world to unite against the non-Muslim world. The “Western world,” including the United States and Europe, has gone on the attack against the Islamic world, he has said. Even Barghouti called for a march on Israel from his prison cell. Of course his statements make no sense but this is typical of the lies they spread. Iran is claiming it has advanced centrifuges in operation now so they are continuing in their pursuit for world domination. The spirit of defiance is unparalleled. Turkish IHH ill-fated anti-Israel ship convoy to Gaza are organizing another one – this time with an airplane. (See article by Hillel Fendel on Arutz Sheva News, 04/11/11).

March Of Return Scheduled For May 15, 2011.
According to Herman Wouk’s book The Hope, written in 1993, May 15, 1948, was the “long-fixed official date—the British mandate will end, the British government and army will pull out of Palestine, in toto, and a showdown is bound to explode. Five neighboring Arab countries are pledged to march their armies into Palestine on that selfsame day, to wipe out the Zionist entity in a week or two. The British Balfour Declaration, which encouraged Zionism, the Arabs have always considered a monstrous illegality, and this is their chance to reverse it” (Pg. 5, The Hope, 1993). On Independence Day, May 14, 1948, a nation was “born in a day” (Isaiah 66:8). It was a birth brought about by the Almighty in accordance with His Promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—Israel’s forefathers. The first Intifada began on December 9, 1987, the second Al-Aqsa Intifada was underway in late September 2000, and according to a very popular Facebook page, the third coming of the violent Palestinian uprising is scheduled to kick off this year, on May 15 - the Palestinian Nakba Day and the anniversary of the establishment of Israel in 1948.
Israel has learned to live one day at a time and one fight at a time, but today the Arab world is armed to the teeth with lethal weaponry and Israel cannot afford a miscalculation. The Church cannot afford to miss this spiritual opportunity to push back the enemy, not only from the gates, but to be a Wall of spiritual protection shielding the Jewish state from any pre-emptive attack to start an Armageddon-type war.

Deception! The Immediate Coming Of The Islamic Messiah?
Reza Kahlili on March 29th wrote, “several months ago I was informed by my contacts in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard that the Basij had started a project that had the approval of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The purpose of the project was to inform Muslims across the globe of the immediate coming of the last Islamic messiah. The Iranian leaders, now more than ever, feel that all the stars are aligned for such an event. Ever since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, the Islamic rulers of Iran have declared themselves representatives of God on Earth, believing their mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the last messiah, the Shiites 12th Imam Mahdi… According to the Hadith in the age of The Coming, a revolution takes place in Iran. This is a key sign indicating that the reappearance is near…Based on this belief, the leaders of Iran see it as their duty to prepare the ground for The Coming. One of the most important events to securing the reappearance…is the annihilation of Israel and conquering Beitol Moghadas (Jerusalem). They state with conviction that Islam will soon conquer the world and all infidels will be destroyed…War, chaos, and lawlessness must engulf the world to pave the way for Imam Mahdi’s reappearance...” The deception lies in that they feel they are the righteous on the earth and all of us are the infidels and sinners.
As this movie is distributed throughout the Basij and Revolutionary Guards’ bases, their hope is to also distribute it throughout the entire Middle East. Their intention is to incite further uprisings with the hope of motivating Arabs to overthrow the US-backed governments with the final goal of the annihilation of Israel and Allah’s governance of the world! This movie can be viewed on Google at: Video: The Coming is Upon Us.
If my discernment and knowledge of the Bible are correct, this pushing forward the “appearance of the Mahdi war” is to prevent the appearance of the REAL MESSIAH! Islam (the basis of its teaching from satan’s deceptive lies) believes that if it destroys Israel, the real Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus) will not return. We know He will come only to a Jewish Jerusalem and the Land will be in the hands of the Children of Israel. Somehow, we must pray that the back of Islam will be broken so that many disenchanted and disappointed hearts will look to the real One True God of Israel and Messiah, Jesus (Yeshua). Without a defeat, they will brag about “their” messiah. Let’s study God’s Word again, be certain of its promises and begin to pray His Word into being. This way we will be firmly fastened to the ROCK OF AGES, which will  never budge during the hard times ahead! Intercessors…it is time to pray!! Please, forward this all over the earth as the Church must arise and push back the battle away from the gates!
The world needs to know what acts are continually forced upon the Jewish state and need to raise voices in protest against the continual war of hatred against the Jewish people by Islam. Reports are that Iran’s fingerprints could be seen on the attack and this will increase. And so…Christians who love Israel awaken others to the necessity of unceasing prayer for the Jewish nation. Remember: if the tree falls so will the branches!! Facebook pages have been created calling for a third “Intifada” on Israel which actually means to take over Israel by force. The last Intifada resulted in 18 deadly terror bombings, and hundreds of innocent people were killed. As residents of Israel, we remember well those sad days and we launched a project “Under His Wings” to help terror attack victims in Israel (see below). The reason I choose to send another “alert update” now is to ask for fervent prayer and intercession from all lovers of Israel all over the earth.
