1.  THE PEACE CONFERENCE IN PARIS The conference in Paris has come and gone.  We stand amazed at what our Lord Yehovah of Armies—the God of the arraying of Israel (I Samuel 17:45) has done!  Truly, He brought His army around the world into array on Israel’s behalf! At many on-site locations—embassies  (in France, Sweden, England, the US, the Hague, many more), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Paris (and

I will bring them out from the

PRAYER UPDATE FROM ISRAEL–December 5, 2016     Rain-soaked slope of Mount Carmel Saturday morning, which a week ago was dry, portions of the mountain exploding into an inferno around Haifa.   “For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which YHVH your God cares; the eyes of YHVH your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.  And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My

1.  ISRAEL AFLAME.  HER LORD WANTS TO RENEW HER DAYS.  WILL SHE OPEN HER EYES?   I have no other country/Even if my Land is burning Just a word in Hebrew/Penetrates my veins into my soul Into a body that hurts/Into a hungry heart Here is my Home I won’t be silent/Because my country changed its appearance I won’t give up on her/I will remind her And sing here in her ears/Until she opens her eyes Until she renews her days/Until she opens her eyes   This poem (Hebrew: Ein li Eretz Acheret) written by Ehud Manor in 1982 came to many of our minds here in Israel over the past week.

PRAYER UPDATE FROM ISRAEL –NOVEMBER 21, 2016  Al-Aqsa Mosque minaret in Jerusalem   1.  SOUND POLLUTION IN THE ATMOSPHERE OVER JERUSALEM AND THE LAND OF ISRAEL  More than the sounds of many waters, Than the mighty breakers of the sea, The Lord on high is mighty  (Psalm 93:4). For the Lord is going to destroy Babylon, And He will make her loud noise vanish from her. And their waves will roar like many waters; The tumult of their voices sounds forth  (Jeremiah 51:55). Above every Islamic mosque rises a minaret, a tall thin tower usually adjoined to the mosque wall.  In earlier times, a muezzin [myu-EZ-in] would climb the tower five times a day, emerging onto a circular balcony near the top, from which he would lead Muslims in the
