Watchmen from Jerusalem, Issue 3, 2010
Shalom from Zion,
What could very well be the birth pangs of the last days seem to be increasing in intensity and frequency. How should we respond? By sharpening our focus on God's nature and His Word. The time is now for
the night comes when no man can work. (John 9:4b; Rom. 13:12; 1 Thes. 5:5) To see Him fulfilling His word through events surrounding Israel today is for the eyes of the whole world. What excuse will believers have if we fail to see the signs of the times and respond in prayer and obedience?
O fools and slow of heart
After His resurrection Yeshua said to two of His disciples:
Luke 24:25-27O fools, and slow of heart to believe all the prophets have spoken. Ought not Messiah to have suffered ...and then to enter into His glory?And beginning at Moses and in all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
Would Yeshua say something similar to those of His disciples who are either unaware or dismissive of Israel's end time rebirth - her current restoration in preparation for His return? If He could pull their attention away from all that distracts them from God's Word, would He then point to all the Tanach prophecies coming to pass literally before their eyes?
Later that day, Yeshua explained to all His disciples,
that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me. (Luke 24:44) True by necessity concerning Israel as well, otherwise God, who promised and literally fulfilled all that He said about the Messiah, would be a liar if He promised and did not literally fulfill all that He said about Israel's resurrection in the last days. Of course this is impossible.
God is not a man, that He should lie...Has He spoken, and shall He not make it good? (Num. 23:19)
At IFI's annual prayer conference in Scotland Chuck received this word:
Believing that I am restoring Israel in these days is no longer an option for My Body. Either My Body will support what I am doing with all of My heart and all of My soul (Jer. 32:41) or they will find themselves moving further and further away from Me by various deceptive winds of doctrines. Time is short. Today if you hear My voice harden not your hearts, but stand with Me and witness to the truth of My watching over My word to perform it (Jer. 1:12)!
