Dear Faithful Companions in the trials and tribulations for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints, (aren’t salutations great!)
Last night we had a wonderful time of praise and intercession for the trial here in Beer Sheva on Wednesday (and again on Sunday, June 21). Worship and intercessory leaders all came together from the different parts of the country to lead in prayer and praise to the Lord on behalf of His name in our trial against the Chief Sephardi Rabbi of Beer Sheva, Yehuda Deri’, and against the anti-Great Commission organization, Yad L’Achim. It was a very encouraging and uplifting evening here, both regarding the trial itself, and also for a breakthrough in the spirit amongst the Jewish people. It was an expression that this case is seen as a national issue and not only as one affecting Beer Sheva or Nachalat Yeshua Cong. Our two lawyers, Marvin Kramer and Kevork Nalbandian, were present, as well as four of the seven witnesses (not counting myself). Wednesday morning throughout the time of the trial, which is scheduled to begin at 9:00 local time, there will be continued praying and praise taking place.
There is much encouragement IN THE LORD!
Prayer Points:–that the truth versus lies would be evident
–for Judge Iddo Ruzin to be filled with the fear of God
–for our lawyers to be alert to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as they manage to trial
–for confusion and division within the house of the adversaries
–for clarity and Holy Spirit control within us as we testify and respond to cross-examination
—for the advance of God’s purposes towards His righteous judgments and the coming of the Lord Jesus,
bringing salvation to those whose hearts are steadfast on Him
–for more fruit of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the believers participating in this case, WHATEVER THE OUTWARD OUTCOME
Num 10:35-36 (read out last night):
“So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: ‘RISE UP, YHVH! Let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You!’
And when it rested, he said: ‘RETURN, YHVH, TO THE MANY THOUSANDS OF ISRAEL.’ ”
Thank-you all for your standing with us for the name of the Holy One of Israel to be honored in His own people and land and city.
