Praying in Israel

“The need has never been greater. The whole world is taking sides regarding Jerusalem.” –Robert Stearns

(Jerusalem, Israel)—At a time when Israel faces caustic criticism and a rising tide of anti-Semitism from nations around the world, Christians gathered in Jerusalem—and thousands more tuned into a live broadcast—to pray during the Global Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem on Sunday.

This year’s attendees included an array of Christians including Palestinians taking part in the Jerusalem event. Around the world, 300,000 churches had signed up to host their own gatherings to pray while the event was broadcast live on God TV, a Christian satellite channel.

“It is incredibly moving to see so many Christians who have come together for the purpose of praying for the peace of Jerusalem,” columnist Michael Freund, director of Shavei Israel, told Travelujah. “These people sincerely love Israel and they believe it is part of their obligation to bless Israel. We gladly welcome them.”

Christian leaders from Jerusalem and around the world called for prayer including Rebecca Brimmer, director of Bridges for Peace, who noted that the supplication was originating from and were prayed for the city where God chose to put His name. This was the first time that a Catholic priest joined the line up in the Global Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.

Robert Stearns, executive director of Eagles’ Wings, and founder of the global prayer day, said this year’s prayers for the city were especially poignant and timely.

“The need has never been greater,” he told Travelujah. “The whole world is taking sides regarding Jerusalem.”

Stearns also noted that in his 10 years organizing this event that cooperation between Believers has never been stronger. Palestinian Christians prayed for the peace of the city alongside Jews and international Christians. Prayer was also lifted up for persecuted Christians around the world and for Israel’s neighbors, including the Palestinians.

“We are not praying because we have all the answers,” Stearns said. “We are praying because we need God’s wisdom.”

Gidon Ariel, an Orthodox Jew who runs Root Source, which promotes understanding and cooperation between Jews and Christians, said that Israel gets to know who her friends are during the tough times.

“This (event) speaks to Israel that you have friends and you are not alone,” he told Travelujah. “These Christians are taking up what they believe to be their responsibility as Believers in the God of Israel as He wrote in His Bible to (pray for the peace of Jerusalem).”

Knesset Member Gila Gamliel, deputy chair for the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, and Naomi Tsur, deputy mayor of Jerusalem, were some of the Israeli dignitaries who addressed the event.

    Following is a Prophecy from a Pastor that I attended his church over 30 years ago in Hamilton NSW, the church being one of the many Assembles Of God Churches throughout Australia.

    Please Keep Praying For Israel.

    Here is a Prophetic Word the Lord gave Pastor Paul Wolfenden, on Mt Carmel Sunday 20th November 2011.

    “A great invading army is gathering secretly to invade Israel. As dark clouds speak of storms and lightening, hail and rain, so dark clouds are gathering on the horizon.

    Israel has forgotten her God. By miracle after miracle God has protected and won battles for her in the past, but she has not as a nation, given thanks and returned to worship The Lord her God. So, God will allow the invading armies to come and attack and for a little while succeed. But as Israel calls out to God in her distress, God will intercede in the conflict.

    The tide of battle will turn, not because of Israel’s army but by supernatural intervention. I saw a great light coming out of Heaven with great power, causing great confusion amongst the invading armies.

    Rockets will explode on their launch pads causing other rockets to explode, killing whole companies of soldiers; guns refusing to fire; field guns exploding as the shells explode in the barrels. Planes will explode as they release their bombs. All kinds of supernatural intervention will take place. It will not happen because of the power of the Israeli army, but by My might and power I will drive them back into the sea.

    Armies from all the surrounding nations will come to bring an end to the Israel problem. It will happen quickly. Even now secret messages are being passed around from one country to another. Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Hezbolah, Egypt, Turkey and others will be involved, some majorly, some less so.

    But, I will drive them back and Israel will gain territory. The nations of the world will be shocked and never again will the boundaries of Israel be questioned. In fact, territory will be offered for peace.

    Nations will know it’s been by the might of God as Israel returns to her God and calls upon Him.” Amen.

    Note. I trust this “word’, will cause you to pray for Israel. Both jews and Arabs, Orthodox Jews and Messianic [Christian] Jews and Christians, live in Israel. We are called upon to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

    Dear Prayer Warriors of Almighty God who have been faithful and persistent in prayers for the salvation and Shalom of Jerusalem and Israel,

    A very serious message.

    Anyway we are going to keep praying for the Shalom of Jerusalem and that the city will not be divided. As time goes on the bible did say that judgement will come onto Jerusalem and all round the world. We don’t know the times but we know the season.

    I treat every prophecy with great respect for it is written not to despise prophecy.

    This prophecy if you would read closely has a very good ending where the nation of Israel will bow the knee to the Lord Jesus!

    I anticipate the final transcript will be on the Jesus Ministries website as this was transcribed via podcast.

    God blessxx

    From Joy and John,

    Copied below is a very important word from Jerusalem, – about what is coming soon – sent out by Simantov re Zech 12.
    The report is from Sadhu whose conference was in Jerusalem – and a prophetic revelation that he was given about Jerusalem being divided and what the world-wide consequences will be. A young Indian man who attended this conference last year, was translated to get there – he had no ticket!

    There is a word doc attached, if you want to print this out. You can change the font size if you want to.

    JERUSALEM WILL BE DIVIDED
    Transcribed by; Sandy Warner
    PROPHESY by SADHU SUNDAR SELVARAJ:12/06/11

    Following is a word that was given in Jerusalem on the 6Th of December 2011. I bear witness with much of what is being spoken but I feel not only will Israel sacrifice East Jerusalem, I think they will be pressured to surrender all of Jerusalem to the U.N. as a international city. Oh God You alone are our defence.

    From: “Word From Yerushalaim”
    For out of Zion shall go out the Law, and the Word of YHVH from Yerushalaim . Isa 2:3

    From: eyes2c@hearts4humanity.org Date: 12/07/11 23:06:04 The scripture in Zechariah is plain. The analogy of what Jesus went through and what Jerusalem is going to go through hits the nail on the head.
    (Note from Sandy: I typed the sections of the sermon that were directly related to the Word. Any place where there is an ellipsis, sections are missing. A few places in the live telecast the sound was unclear and those words are marked in parenthesis and ??? where I was unsure.

    Sadhu begins the prophesy by saying He was visited by the prophet Zechariah. He was also visited by Jesus and angels confirming the same subject. Please remember that God is the God of the living, not the dead. This is scriptural as Jesus Himself was visited by Moses and Elijah on the Mt of Transfiguration, and that was witnessed by Peter, James and John.)

    Live Telecast of Open Heavens Prophetic Conference 2011 held in Jerusalem 12/06/11
    Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj http://www.jesusministries.org/

    Sadhu had a visitation from the prophet Zechariah who told him the following scripture.
    Zech 14:1-3 NKJV Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle.

    “After reading I looked up at the saint and asked, “What does the scripture mean?” He said, “The city of Jerusalem is going to be divided very soon.” That was the shocking statement that he made. And I just looked at him and said, “Sir how is it possible?” And then he explained to me what are the ramifications that are going to take place. How it is going to take place.

    And when we came here on the 5th of December, I spent the whole day in prayer before the Lord that day… I waited on the Lord … and as soon as I entered into my room I saw this huge mighty angel in the living room part of the room. I approached them and asked them, what Word have you brought? And they reiterated the same thing, “The city is going to be divided very soon. This is what you shall share and this is what is going to happen. And this is what is going to happen very soon now. It is going to be divided very soon.” I was shocked. But they went on to explain to me how it is going to happen. What are the events that will lead up to all that…

    *I also had a similar word: >> THE DAYS OF ZECHARIAH’S PROPHECIES ARE HERE !

    …My dearly beloved brothers and sisters, there is a war that is coming over this city. Zechariah 14 verses one and two tells us very clearly. For I will gather all the nations to against Jerusalem to battle. He doesn’t say I will gather all nations against the nation Israel. Very specifically against Jerusalem and the city shall be taken, captured, occupied. I looked into all the root Hebrew words. And that what it says, it will be taken into captivity just like how it happened in the olden days when they went into Babylonian captivity. And the houses rifled, broken down, destroyed. And the women ravished, raped, put to shame. And half the city, not the entire city, half the city shall go forth into captivity. And the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city…

    …. All these angels that are watching over this city. Michael standing guard over this great nation. Now they will all pull back, everyone of them will pull back. Like how they pulled back and they were restrained not to protect the Lord Jesus, (Sadhu had just spoken about Jesus’ crucifixion when the angels were restrained) they were all pulled back. Because the city must be divided.

    It’s a painful event that’s going to take place. Not a pleasurable event. It’s going to be a painful event. But Israel needs to walk through that part so that other prophetic events can take place. She also must walk through that part of the cross so to speak, so that she will look up just like the Lord Jesus Christ, “My Father, My Father why have You forsaken me?” She will cry out, “Oh Lord God where are You, please help us!” She will cry out, she will cry during those moments of her crucifixion. That is necessary.

    Then will be fulfilled what is written in Zech 12 verse 10, and they cried out and the Spirit of grace was poured out upon the nation. And she began to cry out unto the Living God. Just like the children of Israel began to cry out for 400 years. “Send us the deliverer Lord! Send us the deliverer!” And when God called Moses He said the cries of My people have reached My ears. That’s what He says. Their cries have reached My ears.

    All these years, the last 2,000 years it’s the Gentiles that have been praying for Israel. All the Gentiles, and there are some Messianic Jews, but the majority are Gentiles. It’s the Gentiles that have been coming to bless the nation. It’s the Gentiles who have been praying for the salvation of Israel. But in the equation of God not only others must pray, you must also pray. (Sadhu is prophesying this at a conference in Jerusalem.)

    So the prayers of the Jew are also necessary to be mingled together with the tears of the Gentiles. They must be mixed together. So how is she going to get an opportunity to cry out to the Living God?
    She must be crucified and then she will cry out to the Lord. And this is the part they need to walk through. If you read Isaiah chapter 37, verse 35 it also tells us how the city will be taken and it will be divided. (???? I rewound my tape and listened over and over and Sadhu clearly said that scripture, however it doesn’t make sense, so I am not sure what scripture he meant..)

    I saw the Lord Jesus appear and He said, “Come aside I want to talk with you”… I went up to my room and I saw the Lord Jesus standing out on the balcony. So I went out into the balcony and I stood there. And the Lord Jesus was just looking at the city…. He was pointing at places where He did His work. As I looked around, the city looked so very calm, serene, gentle. As I was looking, suddenly a building, maybe a 10 story building, it just exploded. And it began to crumple with dust and smoke. All this is happening right before my eyes. And just before the shock was to sink in, I saw on the other side a huge high-rise hotel and a missile came and fell on top of it and it just crumbled and ashes like how I saw the Twin Towers come down in 2001. And airplanes, warplanes were flying all over the sky.

    And the Lord Jesus said when we saw all of this, tears streaming down His eyes, “My city will suffer the (???) of war.” And I saw the angels standing there with me and they said, “In the war Israel will put up a stave fight against the enemies amidst heavy losses.” She shall suffer heavy losses. In the past she suffered minimal losses. There were losses, but they were minimal. But this time all the restraints will be removed.

    This is the picture they gave me in comparison. They said, “Look at the Lord Jesus. When His moment came and He surrendered Himself, how He was beaten.” That is a simile , a parable to you what is going to happened to this city. She will be beaten, she will be slashed, she will be butchered, dead bodies will be lying on the streets, little kids, young people, bombs exploded and they will be lying on the streets. Their bodies will be lying everywhere and it is a horrible sight to see.
    A political trap will be laid out for the city to be captured. She will be deceived by those who love her….If you remember Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar. His closest friend Brutus is the one to give the deadly blow to Julius Caesar. Everyone who (struck ??) Julius Caesar were all this close associates. They were not his enemies. They were close associates and Brutus was his best friend. It was he who dealt a deadly blow. Likewise Israel’s closest ally and her lover will set a political trap for the city to be captured.

    Then the son of perdition will come to offer peace. A land for peace deal…

    …Land to be traded for peace. Israel withstood strongly (back) then, but this time she will fall for the political trap that will be set before her. And I saw in a vision, the Prime Minister of Israel very helpless. Feeling so shocked that this friend that he trusted would come as an ally to help, who came as a disguise as a friend. But it was a trap that said for them to give up, they will have no choice but to surrender half of the city. They will give it away, that is how the city will be divided.

    And the disguise is this. The son of perdition will be the one who will broker like for peace. To make peace with the land. OK we will divide the land into half, the city into 2 half, you take one half and the other guys get one half. And in return you get peace promised, guaranteed peace. And comes the bonus, you get to build the temple. Already now, secular Jews, they don’t care whether the whole of Jerusalem is intact or not. They don’t care if Golan Heights stays with Israel or not, they don’t care…

    … Can you imagine if Golan Heights is surrendered? All the rockets will be launched from Golan heights. Can you imagine if Jerusalem is divided into two? I don’t want to imagine it.

    Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled at that time.
    Dan 9:27 NKJV Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

    There will be a peace treaty made. And the person who brokers the peace is called the prince of the people. And he is also called the son of perdition. And I am sure all wise Christians know who is the son of perdition, he will broker the peace. Even now I was told the son of perdition is making plans with the beast for this division of the city to take place. Even now they are all being planned.

    My dearly beloved brothers and sisters what you see as a beautiful city from the outside, and all her allies from the outside are not really allies. They’re not. They are made to look like good allies. No they are just waiting, everyone of them to step on Israel’s back. She will be all alone by herself. She will have no friends. Her only friend will be Believers. True Believers will be her only friend, no one else.
    The UN will gather all the nations to force Israel to divide Jerusalem.

    And the prime minister of Israel at that time, he will have no choice but to surrender. because the friends whom they have trusted to help has betrayed them. And they will have no choice.

    Now what is the aftermath? You know God is not going to simply sit back and keep quiet and let all hell break loose. He will not do that. If you touch the apple of His eye, be careful with Who you are contending with. You will have to contend with God Himself. History proves this.

    When Pharaoh tried to stand against Moses, he was not standing against Moses. He was standing against the God who sent Moses. Then what happened? The Lord sent them one judgment, two judgment, one by one. Finally the Lord said “It’s enough. I’ve had it.” And He made a plan, OK bring them all to the Red Sea. It seems to the natural that the Israelites were forsaken. And that is what is seemed. “Why have you brought us here to die? Isn’t there any sea on Egypt?” They all murmured against Moses….But this was God’s great plan. He was luring the Egyptian army for one final blow. And God told Moses, these Egyptians you see today, you will never see them anymore for the rest of your lives. And while Israel was safely out of the Red Sea, the Egyptian army thought OK the sea was waiting for us to cross over. And while they were all jolly good in the middle of the path, the wall of sea came over them.

    In the same way, history will be repeated one more time. The aftermath of dividing Jerusalem, what is going to happen? Great earthquakes are going to happen in many places around the world. When the Lord Jesus died on the cross, there was a great earthquake. When He arose from the dead there was a great earthquake. When He comes again and His feet lands on the Mt of Olives there will be a great earthquake. Likewise, when the city is divided there will be great earthquakes in many places around the world, followed by great tidal waves. Huge, monstrous tidal waves.

    What you see happen in 2004 tsunami and what you see happen to Japan to March, 2011 is nothing compared to this huge monstrous tidal wave. I saw that when they were explaining to me. This huge monstrous tidal wave coming across the Pacific Ocean, moving at great speed that nobody can stop.

    And the third thing. I was fasting and praying on Mt Sinai and when this was spoken to me I saw in an open vision what is going to happen to this other nation that will be a prime (mover ???) in this separation of Jerusalem. Right before my open eyes I saw a 3 dimensional map of the United States of America. This map appeared like on what you see on the news networks. Three dimensional map. Huge map. An angel, a mighty angel with a drawn sword standing beside the map and he turned and looked at me. And he said, “This will be the judgment upon this nation who will turn her back against God’s people.” And with that, with the sword he pierced the very center of the land and cut it asunder. (Upon the word asunder, there was a sudden huge sound coming through our speakers(!!) and I missed an entire sentence that was undecipherable.)

    This will happen. And the nations that were responsible for dividing Jerusalem, God will gather them for war to destroy them. Joel 3:2 and Zech 14:3 tells us like that.

    Joel 3:2 NKJV I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.

    Zech 14:3 NKJV Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle.

    My dearly beloved brothers and sisters, I prayed very much you know. “So what about all the righteous people who are living in this land?” I prayed very much. I asked the Lord this question. I asked the angel this question. “What about the Messianic Jews, the righteous people in this land?”

    And they all assured me they will be protected. Not a single hair will fall down from their head to the ground. They will be protected, and not only them, but during these days, God will even speak to many Christians to move into the land of Israel. Even Christians, God will speak to them, “You move and stay in the land because the fervent prayers of the righteous people are needed.” The prayers of the righteous are needed to be raised up for this land for such a time as this.

    click here to read a word I received >> ALL OF ME, TO BE ALL OF YOU LORD

    So if you ever hear the nudging, even the tuck of pull in your spirit about moving to Israel, don’t doubt. Today I tell you that is the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to you. Move, don’t wait to delay! In fact even the Lord told us we shall have an inheritance in this land.

    So Jesus will plant His foot in this land. We will do that, we are not going to run away from Israel, we stay with her. In the hour of her crisis, in the hour of her tears, just like John the Beloved was the only one who stood with the Lord Jesus til the end God’s people must be like that to stay with Israel til the end..”Other prophetic words I have received that are in agreement with this word:

    “His foundation is in the holy mountains” and “I AM ABOUT TO TEAR ISRAEL”

  3. 3 Michael posted prophetic word from Maurice Sklar

    We are living in very volatile and dangerous times, I received this in an email today, normally I wouldn’t pass it on but it fits well with in all that I believe the Holy Spirit is telling me. Our Yahovah is getting His People ready for the big day and the things that must happen first and that is why He is telling us all these things, as the scriptures say He does nothing without informing His prophets first and their job is to warn the people, in my heart I am saying Come Adonai, hurry and deal with this world so we can be with You, but my head is hoping it is all our imaginations. We are very close at the moment we are to wait and that means to pray and draw near to Yahovah, to be close to Him is to be under His wings.

    Shalom

    PROPHECY by Maurice Sklar 12-1-2011

    “The LORD says:

    The American dollar is about to lose 30% more of its’ present value. This will be the second drop since the previous 2008 drop of 20%. The dollar will then be worth half of what it was before September 2008. This drop will cause great economic distress upon our nation. The church will be shaken and many will wake up spiritually and cry out to ME. There will be also looting, rioting, and terrorism in our land.

    There is an even greater financial disaster that is falling upon Europe that will collapse the Euro, cause panic and chaos there. Germany will refuse to prop up the euro any more. Basic needs in the poorer European nations will be threatened. Many will lose their money overnight as the stage is set for the financial takeover of the Antichrist system. This is imminent, and the dollar will also follow, although it will survive for a season more.

    The great revival will also begin. God has hidden His Holy Apostles and Prophets for this present hour. There will be great outpourings of supernatural provision, miracles, and healing in various places. These areas will become cities of refuge and places of refuge for God’s people.

    There is coming an all out war in the Middle East as the neighboring Arab nations will come against Israel with a sudden missile attack starting from the north with Hezbollah, Lebanon, and Syria. Other Arab nations will join. Israel will be hit from all sides at once and there will be deaths and partial destruction of settlements, smaller cities to the north, and some damage to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem as well. Israel will respond with great force, and limited nuclear weapons will release devastation upon the neighboring countries, particularly Lebanon, Damascus, which will be destroyed completely, and the rest of Syria as well as military strikes into Iran, Gaza, and even northern Egypt/Sinai region.

    The resulting shaking of the West will then release a tremendous movement of Jews making aliyah back to Israel. There will no longer be security or stability as it has been up to now in America and Europe. Israel will emerge victorious from this war, but hurt. However, the devastation inflicted upon the attackers will be one hundred times worse. The spoils of this war will include much territory and will force the west to recognize the Holy God of Israel. It will emerge as the only stable country in the region. Many, even millions of Arabs will be killed. Islam will receive a mortal wounding by the Holy God of Israel.

    I am taking Billy Graham home to heaven soon. When you see this, know that My time of grace for the Gentile nations is coming to a close.”

    Prepare your hearts, the LORD is at the door to appear for His Bride, the overcoming church in this midnight hour

    Pray for those that are trapped in darkness that God will reach them in time.

    In our Messiah,

    Maurice Sklar
