The root of this siege is to shut down the flourishing Messianic restoration that has been going on among the Jewish community. The government is investigating this only for the purpose of exploitation. One person has died because of…

1.  A SPIRIT OF VIOLENCE RELEASED IN THE LAND. “Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O LORD; let your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.  For innumerable evils have surrounded me; My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; They are more than the hairs of my head; Therefore my heart fails me.  Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me; O…

Israel Prayer Update, June 30, 2014

Two weeks ago in the June 16th Update  we wrote: “The landscape is changing quickly in the Middle East—spiritually, demographically, perhaps soon to be geographically as well.”  The following day, during a watch at Succat Hallel in Jerusalem devoted to intercession over the “Isaiah 19 Highway,” our friend Rick Ridings received a vision regarding the shifting of boundaries in the Middle East.  We find the elements of this vision to be of critical importance and submit it with Rick’s analysis for your prayerful consideration below.  Certain aspects of that vision appear already to be moving into place:   ISIS During the past twenty-four hours the “Islamic State in Syria and Iraq” (ISIS, or alternately, the “Islamic State in Syria and the Levant”) has declared itself a new “Islamic Caliphate,”  its…

  “Make the arrows bright!  Gather the shields!  The LORD has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes for His plan is against Babylon to destroy it, because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance for His temple”  (Jeremiah 51:11).   1. “SPRINGTIME FOR THE KURDS.” This past Friday a tanker arrived at Israel’s Ashkelon port bearing crude oil originating in Iraqi Kurdistan.  An independent pipeline has been built from the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq to the Turkish port of Ceyhan.  If Israel is the final destination for this oil (which it appears to be), its arrival marks the first delivery of crude from the pipeline to a company abroad.  All are not pleased with this transaction.  The central Iraqi government in Baghdad…

Israel Prayer Update for June 16, 2014

“He is coming with clouds, and every eye shall see him, even they who pierced Him” (Revelation 1:7) Recent photograph of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem . A QUICKENING The landscape is changing quickly in the Middle East—spiritually, demographically, perhaps soon to be geographically as well. As fierce new military forces are arising, coming into array and beginning to devour territory as well as lives, those nations outside, which until now were considered to have strong interests in the area,  are finding themselves in sudden dis-array— wavering in their former alliances, in some cases on the brink of making almost farcical turn-arounds.  Only a few months ago Sunni Muslims were seen by the West as being for the most part the more “moderate” of the two divisions of Islam—ideal…
