Jerusalem Day

It has been 50 years (May 24 this year according to the Hebrew calendar) since Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six-Day War in June, 1967.  It is clear now for many years already that this did not bring the “times of the Gentiles” to fulfillment. (Lk 21:24)  Jerusalem is still being trampled under foot by the Gentile powers, and East Jerusalem — the Biblical Jerusalem, where the Old City and Temple Mount are located — is still being offered … Continue reading

Religious War? – 21 Nov 2014

The recent terrorist attack in a synagogue in West Jerusalem by Arab Muslims from East Jerusalem, in which rifles, knives, and meat cleavers were among the weapons used against Jewish men praying their morning prayers, has brought closer to home the reality that we are entering a religious war, and not only a nationalistic, political war here in Israel.   Among the dead and wounded Jews, a Druze policeman was also mortally wounded and killed as he responded to the terror within the Har … Continue reading

At The Crossroads Conference in Jerusalem – 20 May 2014

Last week, from May 13-16, the second bi-annual “At The Crossroads” conference was held in Jerusalem at Christ Church inside Jaffa Gate.  The conference did not focus on either politics or theology, but on carrying out the Great Commission in a triangular region in the middle of the Earth inspired by the Word of God in Isaiah 19: 23-25:  the highway from Egypt to Assyria (the whole area of its former empire), with Israel in between as the bridge of … Continue reading

Dates to Remember

Times and seasons have a way of stirring the memories, both personal and collective. Depending on what they may signify, the reactions and anticipations may vary among individuals or nations, or among those joined together through religion or faith. Below are some historical markers that are beginning to converge to draw attention to a watershed, perhaps. Both friend and foe are taking notice.

Oct 31, 1517 – Reformation Day, which gave the Bible back to the people that they may … Continue reading

Not Only God, But The Civilized World Has Spoken – 30 Mar 2014

A case study of sovereign legal rights to Jerusalem — in particular East Jeruslaem, and more specifically the Old City with the Temple Mount:  a thesis by Dr. Jacques Gauthier, an international lawyer and human rights attorney:

Today’s peace negotiations are a battle of narratives less grounded on facts and more on historical fallacies and revisionist history, personal and national emotions, and increasing lawlessness (recognizing no law as binding).

MORE TERRIBLENESS – 24 Mar 2011

Early yesterday morning at 5:15, we were awakened in Beer Sheva by the sound of the air raid siren.  Another rocket from Gaza was fired our way, hitting in a residential neighborhood in the center of the city.  Thankfully, it missed a direct hit on a house, but nonetheless caused injury and damage.  Schools were called off that day, and once again the Mayor made the right decision:  another rocket hit around 9:45, when children would have been in school.  … Continue reading

ARSON IN JERUSALEM – 2 Nov 2010

An arson attack was carried out a few nights ago on the Christian and Missionary Alliance center in Jerusalem.  There were people inside sleeping during the attack.  I was able to meet with them when they came down to Beer Sheva on Sunday for a work project at HaMaKoM Bible House. 

What alerted me to be concerned was an internet article sent out by someone (with an Arab name) which took some of the facts of the case, and turned … Continue reading

WHY PRAY FOR ISRAEL?

A commandment from the Holy Spirit!      —Ps 122   Pray for (Ask about) the peace of Jerusalem                       –this present Jerusalem (the heavenly New Jerusalem does not need any prayers!)                       –still being trodden down by the gentiles

Understanding the times  —1Chron 12:23 (24 Heb), 32 (33 Heb)   those prepared for war; . . .the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do

—Dan 9:2   in the first year of [Darius’s] reign I, Daniel, understood … Continue reading
