Special Bulletin May 2021
May 2021 / Sivan 5781
Oy (Woe!) to those who call evil good and good evil,
who present darkness as light and light as darkness,
who present bitter as sweet, and sweet as bitter!
Eight centuries before the birth of Yeshua, the prophet Isaiah warned us about the promulgation of what is called “virtue signaling” today. We are witnessing the most egregious accusations against Israel (an imperfect, but spiritually chosen nation) by forces of darkness.
Think of the irony of certain members of congress (the “Squad”) using every possible situation to marginalize, assault, and essentially call for the annihilation of the Jewish people! The insanity of their stance is that it is promoted in the name of “racial justice”. How far we have fallen from the insight of an important (also imperfect) leader.
We need to recognize that behind the State of Israel-bashing is an age-old battle of raging jealousy against the GOD of Israel. That is what is at stake today as it has been from time immemorial. This tiny country (smaller than New Jersey) comprised of Jews, Arabs, and refugees from many nations, is touted as the cause of all the problems in the world.
The current crisis is a clash of complex history and modern manipulation designed to turn the hearts of the earth against Israel and the USA. Pictured below is the inspired technology of the “Iron Dome”. This is a major deterrent against Jihadist aggression. We thank God for the scientific defensive breakthrough, while we grieve over the need for such a defense.
We mourn for the loss of Israeli life and normalcy (many friends are running to bomb shelters!), AND WE MOURN FOR THE ARABS UNDER THE OPPRESSIVE RULE OF HAMAS, THE PA, HEZBOLLAH, AND ALL THE PROXIES OF IRANIAN HEGEMONIC IMPERIALISM.
It is hard to cut through the competing noise of media reports about the current military situation. May I remind you of the actual process?
1. Jihadis attack Israel, using various pretexts Click here for a reliable in-depth update
2. Jihadis stash their arms and rockets in hospitals, schools and civilian apartments, using their own people as human shields.
3. Israel drops leaflets, uses bullhorns to warn of an impending military response
4. Israel CALLS all civilians in the area asking them to evacuate
5. Israel fires a rocket into a corner of the rooftop – this is called “knocking on the door “, a final warning for civilians to leave the area
THEN, and only THEN…
6. Israel flattens the building where Hamas stores weapons
7. Jihadis hope for Gazan civilian casualties to parade before the “useful idiots” in the western media [and the US CONGRESS!] to decry Israeli aggression
8. Israel is condemned internationally and called upon to restrain themselves
YOU HAVE A PART TO PLAY / A PART TO PRAY IN THIS HOUR!
On your walls, Jerusalem, I have set watchmen.
All day and all night, they will never hold their peace.
“You who remind Adonai,
take no rest for yourselves,
And give Him no rest until He establishes
and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
WITH YOU, WE ARE CALLED TO SERVE SOME KEY INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES – PLEASE PRAY WITH US!
~ We will be the keynote speakers at the International Conference of the Evangelical Church Alliance
~ The Chinese underground House Church movement has asked us to come overseas and minister to a gathering of their missionaries who serve in the ‘closed’ countries of the world, e.g., North Korea, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, et.al.
~ Iranian pastors have invited us to meet with them in a certain foreign land to understand the connection between the Messianic Jewish part of the Body and the prophetically fast-growing Persian church. We have been connected to Iran for many years.
~ Local congregations and several US churches are inviting us as well to present Marriage Enrichment Seminars and teach on the centrality of Israel in the world Gospel movement.
The only way we can “keep on keepin’ on” is through your prayers and generous partnership.
We are so blessed to know that you “love what God loves” and you reach with us for souls, healing, and revelation of Yeshua, the Messiah of the Jews and the Savior of the world.
