The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

What is the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem?

On the first Sunday of every October, hundreds of millions of people around the world join together to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. In just a few years, this event has quickly become the largest Israel-focused prayer event in history. But why set aside this day each year to pray for Jerusalem?

Purpose

We set aside this one day each year to raise global awareness and intercession for G-d’s purposes in Israel, knowing that this hour in history is critical and our authority in prayer is great. Though we pray every day for Israel, we seek on this day to unite believers around the world in raising a cry to Heaven on behalf of this troubled, but strategic land and its people. We believe in G-d’s promises for His beloved nation and fervently pray to hasten the day when He brings fulfillment to His word. (Read more).

Isaiah 62:6-7

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,

And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Why Stand with Israel?

IsraelFlag_(1).jpg

Israel is a land about which G-d says – uniquely, prophetically, redemptively, and repeatedly in the Bible – “This is Mine.” G-d refers to Israel as He does to no other land on Earth. Israel was raised up to be a light to the Gentiles.

The Church at its inception was virtually entirely Jewish, and it remained so until the Gospel began to spread. Ultimately, the Gospel spread to Antioch – where the first Gentile congregation began – the base from which the Gospel spread into all the world.

In the book of Romans, chapters 9 through 11, the Apostle Paul deals with the question of the Jews in G-d’s providence and purpose. These three chapters virtually stand alone, within the whole of the Bible, as an elaboration of the theology of G-d’s dealing with Jews. The Jews were the “first fruit” … the “first people” (through Abraham) to understand a covenant G-d. They then relayed the riches of that truth to the world, and through their agency, the Messiah came into the world. The Word of G-d calls Jews the “root” and Gentiles the “branches.” We’re reminded that while “because of unbelief, some of them were broken off and you stand by faith,” we are not to become haughty but to fear: “For if G-d did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.” When the fullness of the Gentiles is completed, “all Israel will be saved.” (ch. 11:16-27) (Read more)

Psalm 122:6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Pope Francis Unites the World and Deceives the Nations

beforeitsnew

The Pope’s rise to power and popularity on world stage bring many “Christians” out of the Truth and they together deceive the nations. This is what the Holy Spirit said a few days ago during my prayer. I was not particularly praying about it but it is the Father’s prerogative to interrupt the thoughts of those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.

I heard clearly in my spirit, “Many are coming out of the truth, deceiving the nations.” Simultaneously, the pope was impressed strongly in my heart. The timing was perfect as it was Sept. 21, the day before he landed in Washington. DC. for a tour of the US and the UN that certainly made history.

When God speaks of those coming out of the Truth, He definitely isn’t referring to the world which has always been on the wrong side of spiritual matters. He is referring to those who supposedly know the Truth in the Bible but choose to listen to the deceiving spirits and false prophets, foremost of whom is the highest official of the most popular pseudo-Christian religion in the world. Consequently, the world plunges deeper into the deception because the Bible-believing Christians fail to stand up for the Truth that they have been taught and in the name of false peace and unity embrace the doctrine of this world for humanity’s sake.

The Lord warns us in Matthew 24:24

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

The pope has not done any great signs and wonders yet, none that I know of, but many Christian churches have already bowed to him. How many more will follow the piper when he or any one from his ranks will arise and show forth signs and wonders?

Brothers and sisters in Christ, this message is for us. Let us not compromise. The pope isn’t an advocate for the Lord Jesus Christ. No matter how well-meaning his words or intentions are, he is still deceived for the Truth is not in him. The smooth talk does not come from the Spirit of God but from the prince of this world, the father of lies.

This article below is worth your time: The Shocking Message Pope Francis Preached at New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Let us not join hands with him and help deceive the nations, rather, let us focus on our Savior and Lord and keep sharing the Gospel for we are almost out of time and many are still lost in the dark.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

The Father’s Response to the US Supreme Court Ruling that Gay Marriage is a Right

Supporters of same-sex marriage celebrate outside of the Supreme Court in Washington, on June 26, 2015. time.com: Read Obama’s Speech About Same Sex Marriage Ruling

The US Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of gay marriage didn’t surprise me. On May 21, around midnight, as I was falling asleep after praying I heard a message in my spirit which says, “gay marriage atlas.” I wrote it down without the slightest idea what it meant. Later in the day I checked online if there is such a thing as “Gay Marriage Atlas.” The top results on Google were: New online atlas ‘heat-maps views on abortion, gay marriage, immigration  Religious Americans Support Gay Marriage Both articles led me to “The American Values Atlas” which shows that on the national level 54 percent are in favor of same-sex marriage, 38 percent oppose it and 8 percent either don’t know or refuse to make a stand. The stats reveals clearly the moral decline of America which reached its pinnacle on the infamous day of June 26, 2015. On June 26 the court handed its decision which turned upside down the natural and Biblical law on marriage as between a man and a woman. It was around 9:30 p.m. here in the Philippines when I received the news feed on my phone. It read: “U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage nationwide.” I closed my eyes  and said, “What do you say now, Lord? What is your message to this people?” I thought I would just go to sleep with the questions but gently I heard in my spirit, “Jeremiah 14:10.” I was sleepy yet I could not wait to see what Jeremiah 14:10 says. The default version of Bible Gateway is NIV so here is what it says: Jeremiah 14:10

10 This is what the Lord says about this people:

“They greatly love to wander;     they do not restrain their feet. So the Lord does not accept them;     he will now remember their wickedness     and punish them for their sins.”

 The Holy Spirit then prompted me to read through verses 11 to 12:

11 Then the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of this people.12 Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague.” Then the following words of Paul in Romans 1 came to mind: 18 What is revealed is God’s anger from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people who in their wickedness keep suppressing the truth; 19 because what is known about God is plain to them, since God has made it plain to them.  20 For ever since the creation of the universe his invisible qualities — both his eternal power and his divine nature — have been clearly seen, because they can be understood from what he has made. Therefore, they have no excuse; 21 because, although they know who God is, they do not glorify him as God or thank him. On the contrary, they have become futile in their thinking; and their undiscerning hearts have become darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they have become fools! 23 In fact, they have exchanged the glory of the immortal God for mere images, like a mortal human being, or like birds, animals or reptiles! 24 This is why God has given them up to the vileness of their hearts’ lusts, to the shameful misuse of each other’s bodies. 25 They have exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, by worshipping and serving created things, rather than the Creator — praised be he for ever. Amen. 26 This is why God has given them up to degrading passions; so that their women exchange natural sexual relations for unnatural; 27 and likewise the men, giving up natural relations with the opposite sex, burn with passion for one another, men committing shameful acts with other men and receiving in their own persons the penalty appropriate to their perversion. 28 In other words, since they have not considered God worth knowing, God has given them up to worthless ways of thinking; so that they do improper things. 29 They are filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and vice; stuffed with jealousy, murder, quarrelling, dishonesty and ill-will; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God; they are insolent, arrogant and boastful; they plan evil schemes; they disobey their parents; 31 they are brainless, faithless, heartless and ruthless. 3They know well enough God’s righteous decree that people who do such things deserve to die; yet not only do they keep doing them, but they applaud others who do the same.

Over a year ago I received this word while in prayer, “America has come to the point of no return.” If that was the condition then, how much worse is it now when through the depraved justices the nation has officially become “Sodom and Gomorah” in her perversion?
I am aware that America is not alone in rebellion. She’s not also the first one to embrace this abominable homosexual union/marriage. But her position as world leader makes her doubly responsible as her influence is great. And how time flies. It was three years ago that Obama gave his controversial comment about his pro-gay marriage stance. I wrote about it as the Lord gave me the message, and sadly, it has become a reality. Here’s an excerpt:
“On the evening of May 24 during intercession, an image of gay people flashed and I heard in my spirit “Gay Stories” followed by an image of President Obama. Instantly I knew it was about his declaration on May 9 of his support for same-sex marriage. I shuddered at the thought that God’s anger is stirred up over this repulsive declaration of the world’s most powerful leader, Barack Hussein Obama. My prayer hastily shifted as I began to feel heaviness in my spirit. Then the Holy Spirit impressed to me along with earlier revelations, the effect of President Obama’s controversial remark on America. My mind swirled as thoughts upon thoughts came. The Lord was enumerating the sins of the nation; and Obama’s bold declaration of his support for homosexual marriage tipped the scale further down, weighing heavily on to destruction. America’s leader, the world’s leader has mocked God yet again!.. As the world’s most powerful leader, Obama’s word has set the tone for ultimate sexual perversion. The world may not necessarily give in to legalizing same-sex marriage today, yet in time it will stand at a crossroad and have to decide on the issue. It will be the final test to the extent of the world’s acceptance of homosexuality as merely another harmless preferred lifestyle. So far, the fuss that Obama’s remark has created already provoked many to examine their personal conviction openly or quietly.” See full article: Gays, Gay Stories and Obama
When Obama was re-elected, the Lord said that it’s time to mourn and I dreamed of a devastating storm and the homosexuals defying the storm. See article here: Obama’s Re-election: A Time to Mourn!
The righteous Judge will not tolerate wickedness forever. America is going down to the pit and there’s no stopping it. But just as Lot and family were rescued before fire fell down on the cities, the Holy Spirit will rescue those who belong to Him. So, if you hear the Spirit speaking today do not harden your heart. Seek the Lord while He is available; call on Him while He may be found. Give your life to Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah for He alone can save you from the fierce judgment that will soon be upon America.
Love in Yeshua,

Vision: Israel Through the Lens

Last night the Father reminded me of the dream/vision I received sometime in 2011 as I was praying what to do about the confusion on Israel. When I woke up this morning, the Holy Spirit prompted me to write about this.

The Lord started giving me dreams, visions, words on Israel around 2009 after I heard His voice in December 2008, in a dream or night vision saying, “As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.” (The audible voice sounded as John described in Revelation like the sound of many waters). But it was in 2011 when the frequency of dreams and visions increased that I began to seek and understand what He was trying to tell me. One of those dreams I had was about seeing the vision through the lens.

In the dream I saw vividly very beautiful flowers in vibrant yellow, something I’ve never seen or perhaps won’t really see in this world.  The vast array was glorious and heavenly. It was impressed in the dream that what I saw was someone’s vision and I heard this, “To see correctly, the vision must be seen through the lens.”

The message in the dream puzzled me for months until I read in the book ‘Praying for Israel’s Destiny,’ what James W. Goll said:

“If you want to have an accurate perception of life, Scripture and God’s purposes in the Earth- especially in the days before Christ returns- you must have God’s vision. You must see through God’s eyes and then hold dear to your heart the things closest to the heart of God. Since Israel is at the center of God’s vision, we will need to see through the lens of Israel’s destiny if we are to see correctly and clearly…” (emphasis added). Read the entire excerpt on Amazon.

On a side note, I bought James Goll’s books because of the vision I had of him during prayer. It was in one of my prayers about what God was doing to me and trying to tell me in the many dreams and visions He was giving me constantly that I saw James Goll with shelves of books behind him. Immediately the impression was that the Holy Spirit was telling me to read his books. Amazingly, this man of God discuss in his books many of the messages I received on the Prophetic, Israel, and Prayer and Intercession.

The Lord also prompted me this morning to check on another man of God, Derek Prince, who, throughout his solid years in ministry during his lifetime, saw Israel and the Church in the right and Biblical perspective. I am astounded by another confirmation of what it is about seeing the vision through the lens. His book entitled “The Destiny of Israel and the Church” depicts this image.

The Destiny of Israel

Excerpt

(Below is from a PDF file. Just google to get the link to the file and read the whole excerpt)

The Focus of World Attention

“Why is Israel the focus of attention in the world’s
media? Why do pragmatic and statesmanlike
world leaders erupt with emotional outbursts when
Israel is discussed? Why does the United Nations devote 30
percent of its time and one-third of its resolutions to Israel—a
tiny country with a population of only five million?
There is only one source for a clear and authoritative
answer: the Bible. Although it was completely written almost
two thousand years before the current problems in the Middle
East arose, the Bible provides a supernaturally inspired
analysis of both the issues and the forces that are involved.
Israel occupies a unique place in the current
controversies, because the place that Israel occupies in God’s
purposes is likewise unique. God’s prophetic Word reveals
that this present age will culminate with the restoration and
redemption of Israel. The nearer we come to the close of the
age, therefore, the more intense will be the pressures
surrounding Israel.

These events that center on Israel will also determine the
destiny of Satan, the age-old adversary of God and man. In
2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan is called “the god of this age.” He is
well aware that when Israel’s redemption is completed and
this age closes, he will no longer be able to pose as a god. He
will be stripped of his power to deceive and manipulate
humanity and will be subject to the judgment of God.
Consequently, he is at this time deploying all his deceptive
strategy and exercising all his evil power to resist the process
that will lead to Israel’s restoration and ultimate redemption.
Here, then, are the two main spiritual forces that meet in
conflict over the Middle East: on the one hand, the grace of
God working toward Israel’s restoration; and on the other
hand, the deceitful strategies of Satan, who is opposing this
process by every means in his power. This is the real but
invisible reason for the struggles and tensions which Israel is
currently experiencing.

A major part of Satan’s strategy against Israel has been
to obscure the truth as revealed in the Bible. It is amazing
that so much confusion has existed, and still exists, in the
church today concerning God’s purposes for Israel. The
battle for Israel is, in fact, the battle for truth. There are two
vital areas of truth that we will consider in this book: Israel’s
identity and Israel’s destiny. After we have examined these,
we must consider whether the destiny of Israel also sheds
light on the destiny of the church. Finally, we will discuss the
responsibility of the church toward Israel in this hour of
crisis…

Essential truth is usually simple. And the truth is, Israel
is Israel, and the church is the church.
To recover the truth about the identity of Israel it is
necessary to go back to the actual text of the New Testament
and see how the apostles used the term Israel. This is the
only legitimate basis for a scripturally accurate use of this
term. Ever since the canon of Scripture was closed, no
subsequent writer or preacher has been authorized to change
the usage established by the apostolic writers of the New
Testament. Any writer or preacher who introduces a different
application of the term Israel forfeits the right to claim
scriptural authority for what he or she has to say about Israel.

I have discovered seventy-nine instances in the New
Testament where the words Israel or Israelite occur.* After
examining them all, I conclude that the apostles never used
Israel as a synonym for the church.
Nor does the phrase the new Israel occur anywhere in
the New Testament. Preachers who use that phrase should
take care to define their use of it. They should also state that
it is not found in the Bible.”

I don’t, at this point, want to add more to the writers’ words. They both eloquently explained the destiny of Israel and the church and so I recommend the readers who want to see the truth in the right perspective, to read the books. You may also visit their websites and search on Israel topics.

Finally, I emphasize that the ultimate source of truth is the Bible and so read it over, asking the Holy Spirit to show you the truth from His point.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”

With love, in Yeshua,

Cynthia

 

 

 

An Abomination: Vision of the Popes

Google Images

On January 10, 1:22 a.m. I had a vision of the Papal parade and I heard, “An abomination.” In this vision I saw not one but two Popes, Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis. In front of me was Pope John Paul II in the Papal car and Pope Francis was to my right. The former Pope visited the Philippines in 1981 and 1995. Pope Francis arriving today, January 15. As I saw the vision the following words of the Lord came to mind:

Matthew 23:9, “Do not call anyone on earth ‘Father’ for you have one Father and He is in heaven.

Mark 10:18, “Yeshua said to him, “Why are you calling me good? No one is good except God!”

I used to wonder why the Lord warned us to not call anyone on earth ‘Father’ when that is what we call our earthly fathers; and why would He say to not call Him good? Those questions were answered as I pondered on the vision above. His warning is about referring to any religious leaders as ‘Father,’  and in the case of the Popes, ‘Holy Father.’ As I realized this, I heard the Holy Spirit said, ‘Blasphemy!’

This vision is a warning to my country which is predominantly Roman Catholics. We are committing ‘blasphemy’ for calling the Pope ‘Holy Father;’ for giving him such an honor as if he is God. The true Church, the true believers of the Messiah must stand in the gap and pray for forgiveness of this sin.

One of the Pope’s purposes for coming is to meet with the different religious heads of the country to discuss unity and religious harmony. The Evangelical Church is also represented. Let this vision be a warning to the leaders of the Church and the Body. When God separates the wheat and the tares, which type will you be?

Matthew 13:30

“Let them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest-time I will tell the reapers to collect the weeds first and tie them in bundles to be burned, but to gather the wheat into my barn.”

Matthew 7:21

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants.”

May the Father open your eyes to see that He alone deserves the honor, glory and praise and adoration!

Love in Christ Jesus,

Cynthia

 

How to Pray for Israel- Regardless of Israel’s Political Situation

Psalm 122:6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.

Isaiah 62:6-7

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.

This is from the Intercessors for Israel (IFI):

  1. Introduction: Considering that the current crisis and the headlines in and about Israel change very rapidly, how can we consistently intercede and know we are hitting God’s target?
  2. First, here are two basic foundations for effective intercession:
    1. We pray according to God’s Word because it is only as we pray according to His will that we are confident that He hears and answers – in His timing:

      And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us. [The Greek “hears” indicates listening with an intent to act on what is said.] And if we know that He hears us… we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.

      1 John 5:14-15

      Why can we have this confidence in His Word? Because, God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good? (Num. 23:19)

      God also states, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isa. 55:11). See also Psalm 119:89, Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 24:35, etc.

    2. Our goal is the sanctification of God’s name. In Hebraic/biblical thought, name equals essential nature or reputation. This is the foundation for what the Lord is doing today in Israel, in the Church and in our personal lives.Tanach [Old Testament] saints had this as one of the basic goals of their prayers. After Israel sinned by demanding a human king, Samuel exhorted the people saying, Fear not. You have done all this wickedness, yet do not turn aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart…For the LORD will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you His people. Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you (1 Sam. 12:20,22-23a).The Psalms use this foundational concept frequently.

      Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name. Deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Your name’s sake. Why should the gentiles say, Where is their God?

      Psa. 79:9-10a; cp. 115:1-3

      The most important and relevant chapter relating to Israel’s restoration today is Ezekiel 36. Concerning Israel’s return, God says, I am not doing this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the gentiles, where you went. And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the gentiles, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the gentiles shall know that I am the LORD…when I shall be sanctified in you [Israel] before their eyes (Ezek. 36:22-23).

      Messiah Yeshua undrstood this biblical concept of seeking God’s glory first, so He commands us, After this manner therefore pray. Our Father in heaven, hallowed [sanctified] be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:9-10). Yeshua is saying that one of the ways in which God’s name will be sanctified/glorified is by His will being done on earth. And that is what we see in the situations concerning Israel today.

  3. As we see what God is accomplishing in and through Israel, then we can accurately pray about current issues.What is God’s ultimate goal?

    For the earth [to] be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

    Hab. 2:14

    When will that happen? When Messiah Yeshua returns. For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels… (Matt. 16:27a; see also Psa. 24:7-10; Zech. 2:5,8; Matt. 24:30; 25:31; Luke 2:32; Rev. 5:13, etc.)

    What is needed for Messiah Yeshua to return? First, the gospel must go from Jerusalem (Acts 1:8) unto the ends of the earth.

    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    Matt. 24:14

    This has taken place and is continuing to occur today as multitudes are being saved in throughout the world – except in affluent “westernized” nations.

    Then from the ends of the earth, the scattered Jewish people need to be regathered. For I will take you from among the gentiles, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. (Ezek. 36:24; see also Psa. 147:2; Isa. 43:5-7; Jer. 32:37-41; Amos 9:14-15; Zech. 8:7-8, etc.)

    Their return to the land will result in all Israel being saved. Many prophetic verses say that the Jews return in unbelief – then God opens up their spiritual eyes to see Yeshua, their Messiah and Lord. In Zechariah 12, nations come against a people already in Jerusalem and Judea. Then God says, I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me [in Hebrew: “look to Me”] whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. (Zech. 12:10; see also Deut. 30:3-6; Jer. 33:7-8; Ezek. 36:24-28; Zeph. 3:14-20, etc.)

    Israel’s salvation occurs before the physical return of the Lord because Yeshua is returning to Jerusalem (Zech. 14:3-4; Acts 1:10-12). And Yeshua said He will not return until He is invited back by Jerusalem as Messiah. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem [He is talking to the people, especially the leaders of Israel.], you that kill the prophets and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together…and you would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, You shall not see Me henceforth until you shall say, Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord. (Matt. 23:37-39) Blessed is he that comes in the name of YHWH [God’s personal name in the Tanach] is quoted from Psalm 118:26. Many in Judaism see this verse as what they will say to their Messiah. Until a significant remnant in Israel says this from the heart, Yeshua will not return.

    For Israel to be saved, they need to be alive. God is not in the business of saving dead people (Heb. 9:27). For the Jews to remain alive – especially in Israel’s neighborhood – they need a strong army. This also is a fulfillment of the prophetic word. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. (Ezek. 37:10; see also Isa. 41:10-16; Jer. 51:19-24; Mic. 4:11-13; Zech. 12:6, etc.)

    For Israel to be saved, they need a land to return to. In Ezekiel 36 and Zechariah 12, God deals with Israel once they are back in the land.

    For Israel to be saved and remain in His land, they need a godly government. This is also a prophetic promise from God. I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds…And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them…saith the LORD. (Jer. 23:3-4; also Isa. 1:26; Jer. 3:14-15; Zech. 12:6, etc.).

    In other words, for God’s Kingdom to come, that is for Yeshua to return, all Israel needs to be saved. For that to happen, she needs to be in the land of Israel (although we bless God for every Jew who has met Messiah while in exile). The land needs to be here for the Jews to return to it. Israel also needs to be able to protect her people, which requires a strong army. All of this entails having a government that – as much as possible – lines up with God’s will.

    Anything that hinders this is not God’s will. With this outline in mind, it becomes easier to pray into Israel’s current situation.

  4. We can now pray for Israel, regardless of her current situation. Here are just some areas for intercession that are always in line with God’s will.
    • Cry out for Israel to cry out: Call upon Me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you, and you shalt glorify Me. (Psa. 50:15; also 2 Chr. 7:14)
    • Plead for mercy in the midst of God’s righteous judgments: LORD, I have heard Your speech, and was afraid. LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known. In wrath remember mercy. (Hab. 3:2; also Psa. 85:4)
    • Pray for aliyah: For thus says the LORD, Sing with gladness for Jacob, shout among the chief of the nations: publish, praise, and say, LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travails with child together. A great company shall return there. (Jer. 31:7-8; also Psa. 147:2; Isa. 43:5-7; Ezek. 36:23-24)
    • Pray against any “Land for Peace” process: For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and divided My land. (Joel 3:1-2; also Lev. 25:23; Ezek 35:12-13)
    • Intercede for the salvation of Moslems through the destruction of Islam: Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Your name, LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever. Yes, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that You, whose name alone is YHWH, are the most high over all the earth. (Psa 83:16-18; also Zech 14:16)
    • Pray for Israel’s salvation:

      And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob. For this is My covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

      Rom 11:26-27

      Turn us again, O God, and cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved…
      Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved…
      Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved.

      Psa 80:3,7,19

      See also Psalm 44:4 and Zechariah 12:10.

    • Intercede for the Church to awake to her responsibility and relationship to Israel:

      Ruth said, Do not beg me to leave you, or to turn from following after you, for where you go, I will go. Where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God:

      Ruth 1:16

      I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.

      Rom. 11:11

      Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bear not the root [God’s covenantal promises to Israel], but the root you.

      Rom. 11:18

With a biblical foundation for our intercession, we are better able to hear the leading of God’s Spirit as He places on our hearts His burdens for the nation of Israel – and the Church – in these days of great shakings. (IFI)

Love in Yeshua,

Don’t Be Deceived! A Vision of Speed Timothy Rathbun of the Trumpet Call of God

Trumpet Call of God

The Lord Jesus Christ has warned us that in the last days many false messiahs and false prophets will come in His name to deceive even the elect if it were possible. Deception is rising ever increasingly and many well-meaning believers have fallen into it without even knowing they are deceived.

I am drawing your attention to the “Trumpet Call of God” as the Lord showed me in a vision the true spiritual condition of its leader/prophet Speed Timothy Rathbun. I didn’t hear and know anything about Speed Timothy Rathbun and the TCOG until Brother Carlos (nabiy4america) told me of his concern over a dear sister, a common friend who had stopped communicating with us for nearly three years now. I have been concerned about her from the moment I learned of her involvement. I scanned the net for anything I could read about the Trumpet Call of God and the extent/depth of this friend’s involvement. The information I gathered in the two days that I heard of this group is quite disturbing. I could barely sleep and prayed fervently for this dear friend. In answer to my prayer the Lord gave me a vivid dream which showed that my suspicion of the group’s true spiritual condition is right. Unfortunately, the dream also showed that our dear friend is deep into this group. About a month later as I sought the Lord if I had to see and talk to this friend after my calls and past emails went unanswered, He gave me another dream that reiterated the message of the first dream. I also saw in this second dream how she turned away and would not to talk to me anymore. Three days after the second dream, the Lord gave me this vision of Timothy Rathbun during my intercession for this dear sister.

Here is the vision as I shared with Brother Carlos:

“As I was asking the Lord to open her eyes to see the errors of Timothy’s teachings, at the mention of his name I saw the guy in (a) yoga sitting position while enjoying/smoking pot. Then bending forward to the ground and without using his hands, he drank something which I knew was milk.”

His Interpretation:

“Now about Timothy- yoga suggests eastern mysticism/demons/New Age/deception and the milk could have a twofold meaning. Milk of the Word, which in his case means a lack of true spiritual understanding of Scriptures as opposed to “meat,” but I believe it also points to mixing in of some truth to make his deception more “drinkable” to the vulnerable. The ground suggests the earth/world, not of the Spirit of God. No use of hands = no true authority from God. Marijuana = deception… about the milk, it also means that only those at the “milk level” of Bible understanding will be fooled by him.”

As the Spirit led, I emailed this friend about the vision that she might be warned and hopefully would listen and come out of it. Sadly, she didn’t answer me but instead, later removed her blog and her Facebook page which she knew I was reading and watching. (However, she keeps to this day another Facebook page dedicated only to “trumpeting” the letters of Timothy Rathbun). When I realized what she did, I could not help but cry unto the Lord. As I mentioned, she has stopped communicating with us her friends for a long time now. She isolated herself which is the natural result of being indoctrinated into the cult. I felt so bad about the situation and sought God for answers. Feeling so hopeless, He strongly laid in my heart to write and share this on the blog to bring the warning out not only for her and the group but for everyone whom the Lord wants to warn, and, as a confirmation, led me straight to Ezekiel 3:17-27 when I opened my Bible. The two highlighted verses (17 & 27) that immediately caught my eyes say this:

Ezekiel 3:17

17 “Human being, I have appointed you to be a watchman for the house of Isra’el. When you hear a word from my mouth, you are to warn them for me.

27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth; and you will say to them, ‘This is what Adonai Elohim says.’ Whoever is inclined to listen will listen, and whoever is inclined to refuse will refuse, because they are a rebellious house.

The message of the Lord is clear- speak up and warn them. So, if you heard of this group or read the so-called letters from God and His Christ supposedly given to Timothy which he describes as the ‘Modern Scripture Spoken to this Generation,’ please know that this group is a cult and Timothy is a false prophet. To say or imply that the letters are in equal footing with or as authoritative as the Bible that must be obeyed is already in itself an error that a discerning believer must know. The letters seem to be authentic as they are taken from the Scriptures but as deception is deception, they contain doses of errors and are twisted  that eventually lead to one’s bondage to Timothy and his teachings. The “Trumpet Call of God” is a prison cell and it is Timothy’s subtle manipulation through the so-called prophetic letters that imprison those who are enticed to join. To cite one example of this manipulative tactics, here’s the ‘letter’ about ‘staying separate.’

Regarding Staying Separate

12/11/04 From God The Father – A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

“My children, struggle not against another’s principles, nor rebuke them, says The Lord. Let go of your own notions of right and wrong, and strive to love one another in spite of yourselves; have compassion for those with whom you disagree. Do not judge them, nor shun them in your heart; rather love those who speak against you, and pray for them. Yet have no part in their sin, nor keep their company anymore, for they do rebel against their God. Their argument is with The Lord, though it may seem as though you have become the object of their dispute. 
For they do always struggle against God, in an effort to hold onto their sin. For it is I who wrote The Law in their hearts. Therefore, they know right from wrong and choose to rebel. Yet if they did not know, then I did not write it within their hearts, nor would they be in the wrong, nor would they be accountable for their sins or guilty of rebellion, for one can not rebel while in ignorance. 

If you casually read the letter, you will simply think it is about staying separate from the world which aligns with the message of the Lord Jesus about being set apart from the world for though we are in the world yet we are not of it.

John 17:16-17

16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

In this example, Timothy is subtly telling his “little flock” (that’s how he calls his followers) to stay away from everyone including families who oppose, question or simply do not agree with or accept the letters and believe and obey the instructions thereof. That is the very essence of a cult. He has successfully manipulated them to the point of isolating them from their families. Read some testimonies of past members who escaped from the group from this link:

Damaging Testimonies of Past Members

So, is that what the Lord is saying, to stay away or isolate yourself from everybody who does not agree with the Word? Let’s see what He actually says in the verse prior:

John 17:14-15

14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

The Lord Yeshua did not ask the Father to take us out of the world but that He should keep us from the evil one. We are to remain in the world with everyone around us, believer or unbeliever, but we are to set ourselves apart from the deeds of the world which obviously are opposed to the righteousness and holiness of the Father for which we are called to conform by the grace given to us through our relationship with His Son, our Messiah Yeshua who died in our behalf and imparted to us His very own righteousness. We are not to shut out ourselves in isolation. If you do, what happens then to the Word of the Lord about us being the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden?

Matthew 5:14-15

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

The testimonies of past members contradict this calling to be lights of the world as they actually became stumbling blocks even to their own families in their physical or social and even mental isolation.

Here’s an email from a dear sister in Texas about what she heard/saw about the TCOG:

“… I saw a special on TV about them.  They are very controlling, won’t let you have contact with the outside including your family, friends, and etc.  Sometimes they might let you see your mom or dad but the elders must be present at the meeting.  They won’t let you answer letters, receive phone calls, or having any kind of contact with the outside world.  I think even the house they lived in was boarded up.  It was very depressing. The people that join with them seem to act like zombies.  The elders demand complete obedience.

The TV show that did a special on this cult I think was done by Fox News Channel.  There were two families who each had a daughter taken in by this cult.  All their correspondences were unanswered.  They went to the location where their daughter was but was denied visitation rights.  They called the local police, they came out, but could not do anything because to that point the cult leaders had done nothing wrong where they could intervene.  One of the families did get to see their daughter and alone but nothing positive came of it like the daughter wanting to leave.”

Noteworthy also is how Timothy lives his life for as the Lord says, we shall know them by their fruit (Matt.7:15-16). If the letters indeed are God’s Word through Timothy so as to make them equal to the Bible that the Body must accept and obey, then he should have a life patterned after the Messiah in all manner as a true disciple/prophet, for why should he be more privileged than the Lord? The student is no greater than the teacher. Certainly, Timothy will not make such an outrageous claim that he is for that makes him obvious. So, Timothy’s great teacher and master, Jesus the Messiah, the Son of the Living God who came to reveal to us the Father and reconciled us to Him through His blood and sacrifice had nowhere to lay His head and owned no material riches. He even advised the rich young man to sell everything he owned and give them to the poor and follow him. This should be the kind of life that Timothy Rathbun leads but instead, he lives the opposite. The sad thing is, he gets his privileged life at the expense of his faithful or rather manipulated “little flock.”

Please read Surprising Background on Timothy Rathbun.

Honestly, it is not easy to call one a ‘false prophet’ and label a group ‘cult.’ But after much prayer and seeing the vision, the Lord solidified what I felt strongly about Speed Timothy Rathbun and his Trumpet Call of God.

This friend’s Facebook page dedicated to “trumpeting” Timothy’s letters get so many likes, an indication that people are reading and appreciating the messages. I pray that this article, written in obedience to the Father, reach those who blindly or innocently follow the letters of Timothy Rathbun. May everyone diligently study the Word of the Lord, the Holy Bible. May you seek Him to teach you and lead you into all truths that you may not be deceived by those wolves in sheep’s clothing claiming to have the truth; claiming that theirs is the right way when there is only one who is the Way, the Truth and the Life- Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach. He alone is the True Shepherd on whom we must fix our eyes and follow earnestly for He alone will not mislead us.

John 17:11-15; 27-30

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”

On a final note, Speed Timothy Rathbun of the Trumpet Call of God is not the only one who misleads the people of God, in fact, his is probably just a small flock compared to the more popular Christian leaders’ whom Brother Joseph Herrin (parablesblog) has written extensively about. If you have not read his articles on “Deception” yet, I highly recommend that you do.
