On PRAYER FOR ISRAEL – the prophesied 7 year PEACE COVENANT – the ANTI-CHRIST – the SABBATH Commandment and the Last Days SEAL OF GOD – for Divine Protection Rev.7
(Photo shows prayers placed in the Western “Wailing” Wall at Jerusalem)
Praise God if you have a heart for Israel and keep the Sabbath holy as they who love YAHWEH there do… for then you are a “partaker” as one of YAHWEH’s precious people… numbered amongst His flock... part of His “Holy Nation” ISRAEL as in Ephesians 2! “…ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world….. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone” 1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”
May He “seal” you with His Holy Spirit and perhaps even with a visible seal to protect a chosen remnant in the time of the 7 Trumpet judgements to come. Intercessors groan within for the abominations that are done in the earth against the Holy One of Israel… as Lot’s righteous soul was vexed by the sin and homosexuality around him. The Ten Commandments written by YAH’s own finger are Holy, Perfect, Spiritual and Eternal and still the standard of Godly living for all, by which a person is judged by God as a “sinner” for… “Sin is the transgression of the law”. These 10 basic laws or teachings about our relationship to God and others, were put inside the Ark of the Covenant and have now been written on and placed inside the new hearts and minds of Holy Spirit filled believers who carry them as His priests and worshipers. This was prophesied in Jer. 31... and started to happen in Acts 2 The other 600+ laws written by Moses about daily life for Israel were placed on the outside of the Ark. Yeshua said He had NOT come to do away with the Commandments of His Father in Mathew 5. Because He lives in us we LOVE God’s Commandments and WANT to obey Him who IS the EMBODIMENT of the Word of God. See also 1 John which is all about Love and the Commandments.
(Roman Emperor Constantine changed the 4th Commandment from the 7th day of the week Sabbath which the churches were still keeping and the Celtic churches fought to keep… to Sun-day which was the 1st day of the week. The Romans worshiped the SUN god and he wanted the people to MIX in Sunday and pagan holidays with Hebrew based Messianic Christianity. Thus started the falling away process and the murder or control of Sabbath keepers. God has restored this truth to many and more details are on YouTube. The Roman Catholic Church still claims it has the power to change God’s Laws and that protestant Christians SHOULD STILL KEEP SATURDAY AS THE SABBATH BECAUSE THE SUNDAY RULE IS ONLY FOR CATHOLICS!.. so are you a Roman Catholic? If not, why obey their Popes and the teachings of men over the teachings of the LORD?)
See Nehemiah 10, Esther 8:8, and Ezekiel 9:4 “And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof”.verse 6 “Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.” See Romans 4:11 and 2 Cor.1:22“Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts” ALSO Eph. 1:13 and 4:30 and Rev. 7:2-4, “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel” 7:3 “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads”. Rev.9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads“.Rev. 13:16 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” Rev. 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years”.
It is very debatable in a symbolic vision… if the “sealing” of the 144,000 in Rev. 7 from all the 12 tribes of Israel is only for pure DNA JEWS and ISRAELITES… and or converts to the faith, or are they “Messianic Jews” and are they the same group as the 144,000 seen in chapter 14. The number itself may not be literal number but be symbolic of multiples of the number 12 meaning the “chosen”. They “follow the Lamb wherever He goes” so surely that’s the Bride of Messiah… or else where are we if not with Him on the Heavenly Mt. Zion? Surely the Bride of Messiah would be more than 144,000 souls. Many Christians have Israelite DNA in their past family genealogy without knowing it anyway… as when the Northern Israeli tribes were sent into exile for their sins and idolatry hundreds of years before Christ… God said they would be scattered into all nations and forget who they were. Paul could be said to have thought of many Gentiles as descendants of the lost tribes of Israel who had intermarried and were without hope in the world. This may explain the intense interest some Christians have about identifying with Israel and her God which is “awakened” by the Gift and revelation of the Holy Spirit. In any case, through the life of Jesus Christ / Yeshua, many millions of souls have come to know and trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and are therefore counted as “spiritual children” of Israel, not saved by natural birth but by their faith and the will of God, making them sons of God!
See Book of Romans chapters 9 – 11. Paul says the Gentiles are grafted into the olive tree and both Jews and Gentiles are sustained and supported by the same root… and not to be arrogant. Romans 11:17-21 “And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high minded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.” Hence the Messianic Movement has been restoring this truth since about the 1970’s and dismantling the “replacement” theology of Gentile churches. A good website article explaining the divide of Gentile churches away from their Jewish beginning as the ekklesia of Yehsua is http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Articles/Israel/israel.html recommended by my friend Florence http://iamavesselofgod.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/israel-my-beloved/
Those who are praying “for” Israel are actually joined into the SAME faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as those who pray every day in Israel for deliverance from their enemies and for the Messiah to come. Israel is still in the process of restoration both in the natural and the Spiritual. It is not yet what it shall be when Yeshua comes back as their Savior, High Priest and Messiah and rules over all nations from Jerusalem. Satan wants to use his servants to prevent this happening. He wants Jerusalem too, as does the Roman Pope and the Muslims.
Messianic Jews and Christians are under the New Marriage Covenant Yeshua made with the Houses of Judah and Israel and are not a part of the “world” or secular, political, military or even the “religious” Rabbinical Judaism of Israel… but we are spiritually joined by the Ruach Holy Spirit with all those who personally love and identify with our God ELOHANU YAHWEH… and those who will yet turn to Him in faith in the days to come! “Then all Israel shall be saved”. Jews from the Tribe of Judah united again with those from the other 11 tribes whom the Lord is gathering from the four corners of the earth. Besides these are a “great company of people” from all nations, which cannot be numbered and which the Apostle John saw in a vision of the future. God had promised Abraham that his seed / offspring would be as the sands of the sea in number. For the last nearly 2,000 years the Lord has cast out a great net and gathered a huge catch of “fish” from the seas of humanity into His kingdom. Yeshua told his disciples where to cast their net and said He would make them “fishers of men”.
We must be thankful for all the faithful witnesses and disciples who have carried on His commandments since then… millions of whom have been martyred for the faith… which leaves us here now for such a time as this! This is AMAZING! We must expect to be anointed and protected and do great things for Ha Shem… to shine more brightly as the darkness is encroaching over the earth. REMEMBER how the Israelites who had the Blood applied on their homes were protected from the plagues and death judgements that went over Egypt? We must put on our spiritual armor (Eph.6) and not lose perspective or hope even if we see others around us die or fall away. Many will not know what is going on in the days ahead so it will be a time for witnessing as never before. (Hence we should know Bible prophecy even though many churches don’t even mention it or the return of Christ, for fear of all the different versions of these things.)
Here is a revelation to meditate on… John said the wicked one (anti-christ?) cannot touch the anointed ones who are walking in obedience to the Lord’s Holy Commandments of Love. See 1 John… especially 5:18! Paul said there WON’T be a rapture until AFTER the falling away AND the man of sin is revealed by sitting in the re-built Solomon’s Temple and claiming he is god! (the Temple is seen built and functioning again in Rev. 11:1-2 and 2 Thess.2:1-4 describes the other details and as he said even then “let no man deceive you” about the coming of Christ and our being gathered together unto him)
Whatever happens… you will be rewarded for standing for God’s purposes “against the flow” of words from the mouths of mockers and anti-christ spirits that shall surely come against the Nation of Israel and those who support her. They hate the Bride… the Righteous ones who OBEY the Most High Father of Love… and want to destroy her. Rev. 12:15 “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” I had a dream the other night that Israel shall be called Satanic and Jews and pro Israel Christians shall be called Satanists! That is a shocking thought but the alternative is to abandon her and join the great apostasy of the Interfaith Movement which I’m trying to warn against on my website. (see “DECEPTIONS OF THE NEW AGE IN CHURCHES” in the Tabs above) https://brideofmessiah.wordpress.com/deceptions-of-the-new-age-religion/
We have to pray for ourselves and families as well… mindful of the lateness of this hour and how quickly things can change… just as a wild wind can come out of nowhere and flatten homes and kill and injure many who have no time to react or don’t know what to do… so the whole world can and will be effected with what’s coming… the great tribulation and the time of God’s wrath on those who will by then, worship the “man of sin” / the son of Satan as their god. The stage is being set now. ( Lord Yeshua will appear and remove His Bride, whose righteous soul is vexed by ungodliness… before the Bowls of Wrath of God Almighty is poured out on the Satanic world system and all those who worship Satan by then… just as He removed Noah from harm, Daniel from harm by the lions and the fire and Lot out of Sodom and Gomorrah for “We have not been given unto wrath”)
I am weeping and praying for Israel this morning…maybe war with Iran is close as many predictions are that Israel will preemptively strike at Iran’s Nuclear plants between April and June 2012. They could take them by surprise and start this month. However even a small skirmish could lead to both sides deciding to make a Nuclear war “Peace” deal with the coming of a “prince” / leader? who will make the last “week”… 7 year Peace Covenant with Israel that Daniel 9:27 prophesied about?… be that an EU representative, a Russian? an Assyrian? /Ahmadinejad or the expected Muslim Messiah Mahdi? We will have to see as God told Daniel these things were SEALED up and couldn’t be understood until the last days. See the categories list for “Videos of Bible Prophecy” by Joel Richardson https://brideofmessiah.wordpress.com/category/videos-of-bible-prophecy/
It wouldn’t necessarily have to be the same man of sin / anti-christ who will come / appear 3 1/2 years later, stop the sacrifices and oblation and sit in “the Temple of God,” claiming to be god. (This is also mentioned by the Lord in Mark 13:14 and Mathew 24:15 well as Paul in 2 Thess.2 as PRECEDING His coming in the clouds and sending out angels to gather us together! The appearance of anti-Christ and his false prophet is in Rev. 13) This coming covenant / agreement with Iran / Arabs / Palestinian Muslims will certainly include some sort of agreement to rebuild the Solomon’s Temple which seems so impossible at the moment. So a change is needed soon! Possibly an attack on Israel could end up with an “accidental” bombing of the Dome of the Rock? These are all prayer points to consider.

A PRAYER & DECLARATION…
>>> May YAHWEH’S perfect will be done in Israel and the prophecies of His prophets be fulfilled at the right time. May all Satan’s / Allah’s plans and agendas through the Muslim and Gentile nations be brought to nothing if they are not in accord with YAHWEH’s plans, will and ultimate purposes for His land and His people. We thank you Father for your Righteousness and Holiness and to you alone is all the Authority and Power to make judgements upon sin and unrighteousness. All that mankind does by his own strength and ambitions will fall but your Kingdom shall come and your will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven! We ask for divine angelic protection upon all those who love, trust and pray to you in Israel… for you have not brought them back there to be butchered and raped… but to be a faithful remnant waiting for your deliverer Yeshua Ha Mashiach. Let this time of the birth pangs of Messiah be a wake up call to those who take you for granted in Israel, the secular and godless… those who bring reproach to the Name of YAHWEH and your holy land… let them arise and cry out to you for SPIRITUAL FORGIVENESS, SALVATION and RESTORATION… then let that fountain of cleansing be opened… in Yeshua’s Holy Name… our Savior, Messiah and Bridegroom… “Come soon Yeshua… the Spirit and the Bride say Come” <<<
Someone told me video cameras were set up on the tops of buildings in Tel Aviv a few weeks ago to cover the possible bombings they expect… either way?… something is sure to happen soon… but remember the vision of angels of war in the skies given to Elijah and Elisha! Some Israeli soldiers also saw supernatural angels in the sky during the 1967 war! Israel is still the apple of God’s eye… and He will seal and protect those who call upon Him.
Lord seal and protect us too in the days to come… those who keep your Holy Commandments of Love… those who identify with being “grafted” into Israel… your returning sons and daughters… write your Name on our foreheads as your priests had “HOLY UNTO YHVH” engraved over theirs.

I do not recommend Jeff Rense… but this article he posted is by someone else and lists the possible scenario of horrific weapons, biowar viruses and international effects of war between Israel and Iran. He does NOT take into account Biblical prophecy but his estimate is half of Israel could die plus casualties and tens of millions in Arab countries. World trade would stop for months… it will effect you! PLEASE READ and pray for YAHWEY’s will to be done and supernatural, angelic Spiritual protection for all those who love and serve Him! Psalm 91 http://www.rense.com/general83/irwar.htm
I wanted to encourage others to pray for Israel today… and have also touched on the divine protection /sealing of God’ servants and the restoration of the Sabbath truth as well. (which is itself a “sign” of YAH’s people)
I don’t have all the answers, who does… but it’s all food for thought. Maybe there’s something here you hadn’t thought about before?
All will be revealed… we are here for such a time as this… to see our Beloved Messiah and Bridegroom come back for us… and it’s AMAZING!
Blessings in Yeshua from Susan. (Australia)
Taken from my article THE BRIDE OF MESSIAH – Living as “Holy unto the LORD” in this world…
So please be encouraged in your holy faith… to do all you can and remain standing in Him in the evil day… Ephesians 6:10-18. It may not be long, for all this shaking and the fearful things that are happening on the earth is to see what people’s lives are really based on and particularly to prepare Israel for the coming of their Messiah! We are being tested like gold in the fire! Our motives and attitudes even under pressure must be Christlike or we cannot represent the Lord of Love. We are to be His Lights in the world and the salt of the earth… representing the Great King of the Kingdom of Heaven. “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
This is all that matters now… being faithful unto His coming… keeping ourselves from worldly ambitions and distractions and being busy about the work He has given us to do. Draw on more of the Anointing Oil of His Presence and… “Occupy until I come” …“Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” Ephesians 5:19…
Let us be mindful of who we are and live in this world as representatives of our King Yeshua / Jesus Christ… keeping ourselves un-spotted by the world, dressed in the white linen of His Righteousness and having “HOLY UNTO YHVH” sealed on our foreheads and hearts… because if we have received His Holy Spirit… then we belong to Him!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love” Eph.1:3-4
