I am in Jerusalem and I am praying for you

I am in Jerusalem, and I am praying for you here in the Holy City. The Lord has greatly blessed the Restoring Courage events that have been held so far. I have been privileged to speak to thousands in person and a worldwide audience through television and the Internet, calling people across the globe to stand with Israel. My heart is full of rejoicing, and I want to let you know how much I appreciate your sending me back here to the Promised Land as your ambassador. I pray a commanded blessing upon your life, like the anointing of Aaron that covered him from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet. May God’s goodness and rich outpouring of favor come upon you.

Events continue to unfold rapidly around the world that greatly impact Israel. Iran is moving more of its nuclear program into hardened underground bunkers as a precaution against a military attack to halt its acquisition of nuclear weapons. The apparent collapse of Libya’s government would remove a brutal dictator who supported terrorists from power, but according to news reports, huge stockpiles of weapons have gone missing—and could easily find their way to Hamas or Hezbollah for use against Israel. Tensions with Egypt are very high since last week’s terrorist attacks where the terrorists infiltrated Israel not from Gaza but from Egypt itself. I am staying here in Jerusalem as the Restoring Courage event continues.


Pray that God will protect this special event and all of us who are involved with it and that I will be anointed to deliver the message to our world that we MUST stand with Israel. I also ask that you pray regarding the $350,000 we need to defend Israel this month through our urgent campaign to expose the anti-Semitism behind the plan to divide the Promised Land and the Holy City of Jerusalem. Thus far $79,000 has come in toward this goal. Pray that every beloved lover of Israel who gives will receive a commanded blessing on their lives.

Now is our moment. This is our time. God has brought us together for this defining crossroads moment of human history. Will you help me stand for Israel? Will you pray for God's blessing and protection for me on this vital trip? Will you give to meet the needs of the Jewish people and allow me to continue to stand for them on the world stage?

Every nation and individual that supports the plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment. Every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing. That is why we have launched a national campaign to rally opposition to the Obama Administration's plan, to expose the anti-Semitism that lies behind world efforts to curse Israel, and to support the Jewish people. Your gift today to bless Israel is urgently needed.

I am in a Nation in Mourning

I am in Israel, a nation in mourning. Families mourn the dead while others keep watch by the bedside of critically injured victims of this week’s brutal terrorist attacks. The world should be rising up in righteous anger at this assault on the innocents of Israel; instead they scarcely notice. No world leader has pointed to this latest and most clear evidence of the implacable hatred of the Palestinians for the Jews as proof of the folly of making concessions in the name of peace. These evil, demonically-inspired anti-Semites will never rest as long as one Jew still clings to life.

In just a few hours, I will speak to the world as your ambassador on behalf of the Chosen People. God opened the door through the invitation of Glenn Beck for me to speak at the Restoring Courage rallies Sunday in Caesarea and Monday in Jerusalem. Oh how my dear Jewish brothers and sisters need courage today! These events will be broadcast to more than 100 nations, and I urge you to make time to watch. You can watch this powerful event on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) on Sunday evening, August 21, at 10:00 ET, 9:00 CT, 8:00 MT, and 7:00 PT.

Israel urgently needs our help and support right now. Many people here are frustrated and confused by the fact that so many nations that have been friendly—like the United States, England, and others—are now turning against them, ready to divide their land and their capital city. There is a constant threat of terrorist attack, and looming over everything is the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran that will come to pass in the very near future. Now more than ever, we must stand for Israel, and I'm asking for your help.

Please sponsor me today by giving your most generous donation. The funds will be used for flight, hotel, and related expenses for the trip. When you watch this event on television, listen on radio, or view it on the Internet, you will know that you sent me as your representative and are one of the sponsors.

Each time I go to Israel, we receive dozens of appeals for help from Holocaust victims, poverty-stricken Jewish people, soup kitchens, people who have no bomb shelters for their children, and so many more. Please be as generous as you can because it grieves me to have to say no to such needs.

Please pray for me while I am here in the Bible Land as your ambassador. I know that God has opened this door of opportunity thanks to your prayers, and I want to be a clear voice in support of the Jewish people.

What would happen to an American or Israeli city in a “dirty bomb” attack?

Israel's Vice Prime Minister, Moshe Ya'alon, was previously head of military intelligence and Army Chief of Staff. He is an expert on Iranian terrorism, and described the potential for a "dirty bomb" attack this way: "You can bring a dirty bomb to any city using maritime cargo or air cargo or ground cargo. It doesn't matter. It might be brought to be used in a very highly populated urban area.

"It would cause devastating collateral damage—killing many civilians in a concentrated area of a big city. It might be tens of thousands; it might be hundreds of thousands. It depends on the quantity of the materials in the dirty bomb." In addition to those killed by the initial blast and the fallout as radioactive materials are spread by the explosion, a major downtown area could be contaminated so that it would be rendered uninhabitable for years to come.

As Iran comes ever closer to completing its nuclear weapons program, the day when Israel and the rest of the world must deal with the awful reality draws near. Yet instead of doing anything effective about this grave threat, the world is focusing on Israel. In some ways it's not surprising since in his Cairo speech, President Obama identified the Arab-Israeli conflict as second only to Al Qaeda as a threat to peace. But it's ridiculous! The Obama Administration and the UN are fully committed to creating a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Understand this clearly—every nation and individual that supports the United Nations and Obama Administration plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment. Every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing. Your gift today to bless Israel is urgently needed.

America is on a prophetic countdown to the gravest days in our history. In a few weeks, a vote will be taken at the United Nations that will force America to choose between standing with Israel and standing with her enemies. Israeli leaders have asked the Jerusalem Prayer Team for its support at the United Nations and a week later as the nations of the world gather for the demonic Durban III conference to continue accusing Zionists of being racists. The first Durban Conference occurred in 2001. At that conference, the Palestinians distributed copies of the anti-Semitic The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion to all delegates. It was the most evil, anti-Semitic UN assembly ever against Israel.

The conference ended on September 8, 2001...and 72 hours later, the US was attacked by Radical Islam. I can assure you that in the spirit realm, this was no coincidence. God's Word promises a curse on any nation that touches Jerusalem. Once before, an American President attempted to divide Jerusalem and surrender the Temple Mount to radical Islam. That president was Bill Clinton. Now President Obama plans to do the same—this time by formally recognizing a Palestine State at the UN in September within days of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

I do not believe for a second that all the economic and political turmoil America is going through is coincidental. America needs Divine intervention that can only come from God's people standing in the gap like Esther. This national campaign will cost $350,000. We give thanks for the 480 Jerusalem Prayer Team members who have given $33,000 so far to this urgent need. I am asking every Jerusalem Prayer Team member to stand up to Jew hatred like Corrie ten Boom and her family did in Holland during the Holocaust.

In my new book, The Protocols, I reveal how so many of the modern expressions of anti-Semitism trace their roots back to The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. I wrote this thriller, The Protocols, to expose the world to the fact that although it was uncovered as a forgery not long after it was written, millions of people today still accept it as truth...and act on that false belief. My new book is a chilling look at how the tentacles of hatred of Jews reach even into our own country.

When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you a copy of The Protocols. This powerful book explains the anti-Semitism behind the plot to divide Jerusalem and curse Israel. If you are able to send a gift of $80 or more, we will send you an autographed hardback copy. This is the truth that our world most urgently needs to hear today. You can see a brief highlight from the gala launch event at the Begin Center below.

David Ha'ivri, Executive Director of the Shomron Liason Office wrote: I have just finished reading your new and exciting book, The Protocols. You did an amazing job taking a world shaking but normally ignored true conspiracy and offering it to your readers in a suspense novel format. I hope that this book becomes a bestseller and a motion picture. It should also be published in multiple languages. Thank you for all that you do for Israel and the Jewish people.

The Jerusalem Prayer Team has set up a dedicated prayer wall especially for this campaign to defend Israel. Post your prayers that God will guide our nation and turn the hearts of our leaders toward Israel...that He will grant Israel His favor and guard and defend His Chosen People. Your prayers will be an encouragement to others, and we ask that you take a moment to share your prayers for the Jewish state...and that you continue to pray faithfully for the peace of Jerusalem.

Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team makes it possible for us to continue to stand for Israel on the world stage, to rally Believers across the globe to join in fervent intercession for Israel, and to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the Chosen People. Thank you so much for being part of the team.

Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah.

Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.

De-legitimization At Its Worst

by Dr. Michael D. Evans

Since its rebirth in 1948, Israel has endured and overcome military attacks from neighboring nations. She has been assailed by gun-wielding fanatics and terrorists encased in explosive-laden backpacks. Israel stands today because of the grit and tenacity of the Jewish people and the providence of God. Having been deterred by Israel's security forces, her enemies have turned to defaming the nation by questioning her very right to exist. This attack is both convoluted and hazardous. The airwaves are constantly bombarded by those wishing to prove Israel's lack of legitimacy as a nation and detailing her supposed "war crimes" against humanity. I don't often quote Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi war criminal, but in this instance, it is appropriate: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

The denial of the authentic claim of the Jewish people to occupy their homeland is de-legitimization at its worst . Those who would wish to strip the Jewish people of their birthright are subtle and urbane. Israel is cleverly portrayed as a nation of immoral people whose birth is illegitimate and character questionable. The test for those embroiled in this issue is to separate valid criticism from innuendo--to distinguish the truth from the lie. In peace talks, Israel is portrayed as the recalcitrant child unwilling to share her toys with the other kids on the block. The Palestinians are the poor, deprived underlings. They are the orphans with a hidden roomful of toys donated by those who pity the underprivileged--the bully on the block who somehow manages to elicit sympathy while surreptitiously pummeling the innocent. The fires of public opinion are burning brightly against the State of Israel.

Western countries and leaders unfortunately seem to have embraced this crusade for de-legitimizing Israel. The Liberal Left has joined forces with fanatical Muslim elements in an attempt to crush the very life from the Jewish nation comparable in size to the state of New Jersey. Israel is expected to kowtow to the demands of its detractors without a whimper and accept her intended fate without a fight. With the Liberal Left emphasis on human rights and a finger of blame pointed at Israel as a nation that intentionally violates those standards, world leaders have become more accepting of the de-legitimization process.

Understand this clearly -- every nation and individual that supports the United Nations and Obama Administration plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment. While every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing. Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.
