Israel

A Demonic Strategy for the Deceiving of Israel

Introduction

We are in various ways indebted to Israel, but mostly for their facilitating role in receiving and recording the Word of God, which was made available to us through the ministry of first generation Jewish evangelists.

Our Responsibility in Respect of Jerusalem

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you” (Ps. 122:6).

“I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth” (Isa. 62:6-7).

A Courageous Follower of the Messiah in Israel

The following testimony of a modern Messianic Jew contains excerpts from Jacob Damkani’s website www.trumpetofsalvation.com and his autobiography, Why Me?:

My name is Jacob Damkani and I was born in 1952 by the Sea of Galilee to a religious Jewish family of the tribe of Judah. By the grace and the mercy of God, I was born again in 1977. Only then did I understand my true God-given identity

The Third Intifada

The widening circle of Arab uprisings in the Middle East is a cause of great concern to Christians, Jews, and all people who prefer peaceful solutions to violent struggles in settling political, religious and other disputes. The situation is rapidly deteriorating as the revolutions spread from one country to another, everywhere aimed at bringing down the local government and replacing it with an “Islamic people’s government”. The circle of violence is closing in on Israel and the scene is already set for a “Third Intifada” by the Palestinians and their millions of militant supporters in neighbouring Muslim countries.

In Defence of Israel?

Dr. Mike Evans of the Jerusalem Prayer Team (JPT) issued a strong appeal for international support for Israel in the face of a planned declaration of a Palestinian state in September 2011, with East Jerusalem as its capital. According to Mike, the United Nations will ratify this plan with the full support of the US and most other countries. Great concern is rightfully expressed that the implementation of the plan will seriously threaten the national interests of Israel.

Comfort My People!

The Bible gives very clear directions to the nations, particularly to the Christians, about their conduct and responsibilities towards Israel. If this advice is heeded, God promises to bless both parties – the giver and the recipient. These directions are mostly given in the imperative form and are therefore commands. If you want to know God's will regarding your relationship with Israel, and at the same time secure blessings for yourself and your nation, then do these things.

In Revelation 1:13, Christian congregations are likened to lampstands. As witnesses of Christ they must be like lights shining in a dark world. The lampstand referred to in this case, has seven branches. It also features in the Jewish religion, and is called a menorah. Apart from our general commission as witnesses of Jesus in the world, these seven candles must also be made to light up Israel's way, as indicated in the illustration.

Epicenter – the Heart of the World and the Universe

A well-known Messianic Jew of our time, Joel C. Rosenberg (see www.joelrosenberg.com) wrote a book with the title, Epicenter, in which he dramatically describes the rising tension in the Middle East as a prelude to the great war of Ezekiel 38 and 39. This best-selling book has led to a documentary dvd production with the same title (www.epicenterdvd.com). Epicenter pursues some themes explored in fiction form in his books, The Last Jihad, The Last Days, The Ezekiel Option, and The Copper Scroll.

The word epicenter (Greek: epi-kentros) means in or on a central point. It may, for instance, refer to the point at which an earthquake reaches the earth’s surface, spreading out from there. Joel Rosenberg uses this concept to indicate that Israel is the epicenter of the world, Jerusalem is the epicenter of Israel, and the Temple Mount is the epicenter of Jerusalem.

Final Phase in the Revival of Israel’s Temple Culture

Israel’s traditional religion revolves around the temple service and cannot be properly expressed without a fully functioning temple in Jerusalem. Modern Israel is on the threshold of the revival of their Old Testament (OT) temple culture and the reverting to these practices will have far-reaching consequences for the entire Jewish nation – including their form of government. The following reforms are contemplated by the leaders of the temple project:

God’s Love for Israel

Abstract: God’s love for Israel, and His irrevocable covenant with them, guarantees the complete restoration of this nation.

In the Old Testament, the wonderful characteristics of God’s love were in a very clear way revealed to Israel. This nation owes its entire existence to the love of God. However, it was always meant to be a reciprocating love in which the obligation rested on Israel to respond to God’s love by living in the right relationship with Him. Moses said to his people:
