There is a prophecy which states: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about…. Jerusalem twill be] a burdensome stone for all people….in that day will I make the governors of Judah…like a torch off re in a sheaf; and they shall devour an the people round about…” Zechariah 12:2,3,6
I re-posted this from Jerry Golden’s web site as I believe it is pertinent and timely.
Our media is not covering what is going on there. Jerry acts as our eyes and ears.
The situation could escalate….
Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem. L.A.M.
Happening Now in Israel
Once again the war drums are beating louder here in Israel. Southern Israel is being bombarded with thirty to forty rockets out of Gaza daily, with tens of thousands of families with children running to bomb shelters several times every day. With homes being shelled and some landing directly in bedrooms in the middle of the night. We hear that the IAF (Israel Air Force) has bombed more empty buildings in Gaza. For some reason that doesn’t seen like enough for killing Jews.
Our soldiers are grouping up on the Gaza border hoping that will frighten the Islamic murderers enough to stop bombing our civilians. Or that the UN and the rest of the world will notice that war crimes are taking place against Israel practically on an hourly basis.
Hamas has threatened that if the IDF moves into Gaza that Israel will be very surprised as they can reach Israeli cities never before bombed from Gaza. In the meantime Jews in southern Israel are wondering what is wrong with Netanyahu and why he keeps threatening to do something while they are being bombed daily. What is he waiting for? Does a group of children have to be hit with a bomb before he takes action to stop them?
Today I have to drive to Jerusalem and will pass several Arab villages where I have been shot at and stones thrown at us on the highway. Our news is telling us that fighting is breaking out in and around Jerusalem and there is a fear of another Intifada – this time even worse than the first two. One thing is certain. All this will improve and intensify our prayer life.
On the way to Jerusalem we go through two permanent IDF checkpoints and sometimes with others set up along the way. What is usually a 45 minute drive can take hours.
With the war in Syria now spreading far into Iraq and threatening to move into Jordan, this has Israel wondering what we should do- knowing that their final goal is to destroy Israel. We see Obama once again on the wrong side, supporting the “Rebels” who are now ISIS. These so-called rebels are very barbaric – beheading dozens, even hundreds daily as they move across the territory. Most of the ones they are murdering are other Muslims who don’t agree with the Islamic ideology. At present it is mostly the Sunnis killing Shiites and setting up Sharia Law as they go.
It must sound like all of Israel is under attack – but that is not the case. If you were to go to Tel-Aviv today you would find the beaches full and life very normal. At present it is in the southern parts of Israel and in and around Jerusalem. There is also a lot of IDF build-up on our northern borders with Syria and Lebanon with an occasional rocket coming across the border into Israel. The IDF always responds with force but nothing seems to stop these Islamic devils. Even with the Gaza border build-up of IDF military Hamas knows that if Israel comes into Gaza many will die and there will be a terrible amount of destruction. They know they can’t win but as I have said so many times, they love death more than we love life.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden
