Prayer for Protection

Over the past two months, we have requested your prayers for God's protection over Israel on an almost daily basis. The daily terror attacks have forced us to lean in to God for trust, refuge, comfort and strength. We ask that you would join with us in praying Psalm 71:1-5 for the people of Israel. In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be ashamed. In Your righteousness deliver me … [Read more...]

God’s Promises Continue

In recent blog entries, we have studied God’s unconditional covenant with Abraham and Isaac. This covenant was not just for them, for that time and place, but was also to continue with their descendants. It is a spiritual law that God’s Word and Promises must come to pass; He is not a liar, nor does He go back on His Word. We can see the continuation of these unchangeable promises with Jacob, the … [Read more...]

Stabbing in Gush Etzion Takes Israeli Girl’s Life

Kiryat Gat Attack

Four people were wounded in an attack yesterday in Kiryat Gat, the first of its kind in that city since this last month's surge of violence began. The 18-year old attacker stabbed four people, a 13-year old girl, a 51-year old man, and two women aged 44 and 56.

Wisdom for the Nations

Ever since the attacks in Paris occurred, every media outlet is buzzing with opinions about the war on Islamic extremists, ISIS and what to do about the refugees. Many people fear the current state of the world and their future's. Many people fear their lives from an infiltration of terror through unknown channels. These are legitimate issues and concerns, but we must be careful of the schemes of … [Read more...]

The Future Generation

During the past years, I have witnessed something that grieves my heart immensely – the increasing use of children to commit acts of terror in the ongoing struggle in the Middle East. In past years, children were encouraged to take to the streets to riot, to spit on and curse at law enforcement, and to throw stones and Molotov bottles. Yet, as we have recently witnessed in Israel and France, … [Read more...]

Blaming Israel

Already, as does in almost every occasion, there have already arisen a number of opinions and politicians blaming Israel for the attacks in Paris. This is nothing new, and obviously entirely unfounded and incorrect, but it can cause backlash against Jews. We ask for prayer that these voices blaming Israel will be quickly corrected and silenced so that they do not lead people astray and cause … [Read more...]
