Israel and Jews worldwide celebrated the start of the fall feasts of the Lord this past Wednesday evening and shofars were blown in honor of Yom Teruah – the biblical name for Rosh Hashanah. With this, the new religious year on the Jewish calendar begins. As the only instruction we have in scripture is to create a loud noise as a memorial before God and to offer an offering by fire (Lev. 23:24-25; the offering is not possible without the Temple), Jews obey this by blowing the shofar and honoring God in his capacity as the Creator and the King. The Lord Yeshua is also declared as Creator and King.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made…John 1:1, 3b; see Psa. 33:6
Welcome to Intercessors for Israel.
Psalm 122:6 tells us to 'Pray for the peace of Jerusalem" Every Friday we at Intercessors for Israel send out an update to keep you informed and to encourage you to pray. Please sign up to receive these updates in your inbox.
To begin, we read Isaiah 61:10-11 from this Shabbat’s prophetic portion.
I will greatly rejoice in YHWH, my soul will be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the robes of salvation, He covered me with the robe of righteousness…For as the earth comes out with its bud, and as the garden causes that which is sown to grow; so the Lord YHWH will cause righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.

I will stand upon my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.Habakkuk 2:1-3
Habakkuk is a watchman, an intercessor and a prophet. The sign of his genuineness is his humility and his willingness to be corrected.
When we look at the Church today we see many self-proclaimed prophets but very few men and women of God who are really open to correction – by God or by man.
