This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I am hearing disturbing news coming from the middle East and surrounding Israel right now. Even though she is God’s chosen people, she has always suffered such persecution in the world that hates her. If you have been watching the series of The Bible, you will see this has been going on since the beginning of time from their deliverance from Egypt. God’s Word tells us in Deu. that those who curse Israel will be cursed and he who blesses her will be blessed. Our nation is in the throws of coming under a curse because our commander in chief, the vice president and secretary of state do not support Israel. If you read Jeremiah chapter 30, you can see all this coming to pass as it has not been fulfilled yet. I pray for Mr. Obama to have his eyes open to the truth, I pray for this country and her alliance with Israel. It’s time we know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I pray that blind eyes will be open to the word of God, who will not be mocked.
An inside view of what President Obama is doing here in Jerusalem
By Mike Evans and the Jerusalem Prayer Team
Shalom from your Jerusalem World Center. I am here as your ambassador. Please pray for me. Secretary of State John Kerry is already here in Israel, and President Obama arrives tomorrow. Here’s an inside view of what the president is up to this week in Jerusalem. President Obama’s primary purpose in coming is to push for more time to allow diplomacy and economic penalties to run their course with Iran.
Netanyahu, in his speech to the United Nations last September, said Iran was about six months away from being able to build a bomb. Obama told an Israeli television station this past week that the U.S. thinks it would take “over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon.” The centerpiece of Obama’s visit will be a speech in Jerusalem to an audience mainly of Israeli students. It’s part of the president’s effort to appeal to the Israeli public, particularly young people.
He will make several cultural stops, all steeped in symbolism, in the region. They include the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem; Mount Herzl, where he’ll lay wreaths at the grave of Theodor Herzl, and visit the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Mr. Obama will also view an Iron Dome battery, part of the missile defense system the US has helped pay for. I believe this is meant to be a signal to Israel that if they attack Iran, they will lose US support.
The nation of Israel urgently needs our help, support, encouragement, and prayers right now. This is a prophetic crisis, foretold in the pages of Scripture. We are watching it happen before our eyes. Today I am asking you to join me in urgent prayer. As God leads, perhaps you would fast for one meal or one day as we pray together for His blessing and protection on His Chosen People.
