GOD ANSWERS PRAYER
As usual it was a very powerful and awesome experience to stand in the gap before the Throne of Grace in the Holy of Holies on behalf of Israel and the Middle East on Yom Kippur. We are certain that the hand of God was moved on behalf of His people as a result.
We can clearly see two specific answers to prayer already. The Road Map is now basically dead. Secondly, President Bush has this week clearly declared Israelís right to defend itself against terror. He even said about Israelís strike against Syria, which caused an international uproar and an extra meeting in the UN, that the United States would have done the same as Israel in this situation and the US Congress is voting on bringing more sanctions against Syria for supporting terror. Furthermore, the United States has already declared that they will not vote for a resolution against Israel in the UN because of Israel's attack of a training camp for terrorists outside of Damascus or for erecting the separation fence. Let us rejoice and thank the Lord for these answers to prayer! Hallelujah! Pray that America will remain firm on these issues!
Also, Yasser Arafat might be on his way out. He has been very sick this week and there are serious rumors about his health. While we don't rejoice over his poor health, we must recognize that we have prayed for "Haman" to be dethroned and "Mordecai the Jew" to be exalted. When the Lord finally removes Arafat it represents a major shift in the heavenlies over the Middle East. Let us continue to declare in prayer that all "Hamans" are on their way out!
We have to understand that the whole world right now is involved in a war with the forces of Islam. The Third World War has already begun! It is still in the initial stages, but it is here and we must get involved in prayer. A major prayer subject is that Israel will receive optimum liberty to defend herself as she are the main target of Islamic fury and a full scale war confrontation will come sooner or later.
Islam is a far more dangerous enemy than even Nazism and Communism. It took a lot of unnecessary time for the world to wake up to the danger of Hitler. And today most of the world is asleep to the danger of Islam. Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political system as well as a military power with a very clear goal to conquer the whole world for Allah and Mohammed and to kill Christians and Jews. In short their goal is to erase Biblical faith in the earth and to stop God's plan of redemption through Israel and the harvest in the nations. We need to wake up!
Last week Mike
Evans, the Director of Jerusalem Prayer Team, wrote an article called "Sleeping With
the Enemy." This article is an answer to our prayers for
America to wake up regarding the danger of Saudi Arabia.
We want to forward this e-mail. Please note especially point #9 below. Mike Evans
urgently appeal to you to get this email out to everyone you know. We must defend
Israel and America. Saudi Arabia seems
intent on destroying both nations by financing the H-bomb (human suicide bomber). If
we close our eyes, I fear America will be next.
"Please pray for
our President today. The President needs to release the 28-page
** THANK THE LORD FOR PRESIDENT BUSH'S FIRM STAND WITH ISRAEL THIS WEEK! Pray God's anointing and blessing over his life!
** PRAY FOR PRESIDENT BUSH THAT HE WILL RELEASE THE 28-PAGE REPORT THAT IMPLICATES THE SAUDIS IN WORLDWIDE TERRORISM AND THAT HE WILL MAKE THE NECESSARY DECISIONS BASED ON THE REPORT! The truth needs to come out and the United States must stop sleeping with the enemy.
** PRAY FOR THE EXPOSURE OF ISLAMIC TERROR IN YOUR NATION! PRAY FOR YOUR POLITICIANS! PRAY FOR REVIVAL AMONG MUSLIMS!
The battle against Islamic terrorism is certainly not limited to the United States and Israel. These nations are on the forefront, but the battle is worldwide and involves every nation. Many lives are at stake. We must take this seriously. Only prayer can save our nations. Even in our "peaceful" home country Sweden, the Islamic Center in Stockholm held a conference this summer about the Muslim religious duty of suicide terrorism.
Last month, Russia for the first time in history entered into a deeper level of cooperation with Saudi Arabia. With Muslims making up about 20 million of Russia's 145-million population, President Putin also expressed a desire to see Russia become an observer nation in the Organization of Islamic Conference, a grouping of Muslim-majority countries. This is a dangerous development that prophets have warned about and we need to pray for a breakup of this unholy alliance between former Communist regimes and Islam.
Now that the Road Map is shattered, we also need to pray specifically for Israel to stand united. There are forces working again out of frustration and bitterness on the left in Israeli politics, to sabotage the Government of Ariel Sharon behind his back even in cooperation with Arafat and his men to establish another "peace deal" for Israel's destruction. The recent strikes in Israel that seriously harm Israel's economy are another expression of this treachery.
Please understand that we are not against real peace. But we are opposing Arafat's and PLO's agenda to "destroy Israel piece by piece through 'peace.'" Peace and terror can not go together. We must pray against the spirit's of deception that eventually will bring Israel into an alliance with the anti Christ. That alliance, when it finally occurs, must be as small, weak and short lived as possible because we have been faithful to pray.
** PRAY THAT GOD WILL STRENGTHEN THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL IN THIS VULNERABLE SITUATION AFTER THE ROAD MAP HAS COLLAPSED!
** PRAY FOR THE LORD'S WILL TO BE DONE REGARDING A PLANNED EXCHANGE OF PRISONORS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HEZBOLLAH IN CONNECTION WITH RAMADAN!
Israel is planning to release hundreds of Arab prisoners for one alive and three dead Israeli soldiers. There are indications that Ron Arad, an Israeli pilot missed in action in Lebanon since 1986, is still alive. At the moment Arad is not included in the prisoner exchange even though Israel plans to release a Hezbollah terrorist specifically caught for the purpose of freeing Arad in a prisoner swap.
** CONTINUE TO PRAY THAT BOTH JEWS AND ARABS WILL TURN TO THE LORD AND FIND PEACE IN MESSIAH!
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES HAS BEGUN. LET'S CELEBRATE THE KING!
The Feast of Tabernacles is a feast of much rejoicing, praise and worship in anticipation of the Lord's ultimate victory when He returns as King to Jerusalem. God has set aside this time for celebration of His goodness, power and victory.
"Be joyful at your Feast -- you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. For seven days celebrate the Feast to the Lord your God at the place the Lord will choose. For the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete." Deuteronomy 16:14-15
