Sunday Go To Meeting Bun – Israel Update!

John KerryThere 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

by

Jerry Golden

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

Sunday Bun – Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

BUN!

This is from the Golden report and with all that is happening in the Middle East, I felt it pertinent to post it here.  Isaiah 17 seems to be coming closer with each passing day.  So what can we do?  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  What is written will come to pass, what was foretold will unfold.  L.A.

If I lived in Damascus I’d move now

A while back I wrote a report that stated that things couldn’t look worse in regards to possible war, well I was wrong, it looks worse now. The IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gant now says it looks like we have to prepare for war on multi fronts. He has also made it very clear that Israel will act decisively and with overwhelming power, his quote is ” If Assad destabilizes the Golan Heights he will pay a heavy price.” That sure sounds like Isa. 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Russia’s Naval Forces are building up like never before in the Eastern Mediterranean they are not only supply Assad with S-300 missiles that pose a real danger to the Israel Air Force but Putin has told both Obama and Netanyahu “Hands Off Syria”. Iran has said they will attack Israel, if Israel attacks Syria. It seems that once again they are underestimating Israel, and its ability to defend itself. But Israel’s greatest weapon cannot be found in military might but in the supernatural.

Our northern border along the Lebanon and Syrian southern borders is beginning to look like war could be any day now or at least if preparation means anything we are certainly looking ready.

The US keeps saying things like all options are on the table, making everyone nervous not so much about what the US might do in Syria but what Russian and Iran will do if the US tries to enforce a no fly zone over Syria.

In the mean time Israel cannot and will not allow any shipment of advanced weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Even after Putin says hands off, simply because we already know that Hezbollah has something in the neighborhood of 80,000+ missile many capable of hitting all parts of Israel.

What this means when this wars breaks out, Israel has no choice but to unleash its full military power for a fast and certain victory, because around 2/3rds of our population lives on the Mediterranean Coast between Jaffa and Haifa and are now in range of Syrian and Hezbollah missiles, and the thought of Assad using his chemical warheads isn’t a thing Israel can allow.

As for here in Jerusalem it takes abut 5 minutes for fighter jets to come from Jordan to Jerusalem, not giving a lot of time for defense. For the past few years Hamas has been busy stocking up with everything in the way of rockets and missiles in preparation for this coming war. Israel will have no choice but to destroy Gaza very quickly. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt are having many of their own problems with the population, but the Egyptian military is strong and could be a real threat on our southern border thanks to the US weapons like F-15′s & 16′s long range artillery and the best Tanks the US has to give them.

Bottom line, Israel will have to fight many fronts and all at the same time keeping in mind we are a very small country and losing is not an option for us, which means like they say all options are on the table…

So we have a lot on our plate, and our first concern will be to defeat the enemy and we will, of this you can be sure.

As for this Ministry we still have the concern of raising the needed finances to move our three boats into the places necessary, they are all now in good condition and ready for any kind of service. The need to purchase a larger boat is always on my mind, but first it is necessary for us to have the needed finances to operate the three we now have, and there is many needs not only fuel, but food, emergency items, communications and logistics.

We also have others with boats who have said they are willing to join us, but most of them also have financial problems and will need help from us.

The way things are now looking in the US and throughout Europe the ability to get finances to this Ministry could come to an end at any time now. I am asking you to pray, just pray, ask God what He would have you do in regards to this Ministry, we need your help and all I am asking is for you to be obedient when you hear from God.

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
