"A Launch Pad Year"by Joe Joe Dawson, Texarkana, Texas

This is going to be the year of acceleration, shifting, alignment, stepping into, regaining, fulfillment, abundance, overflow, suddenly and the year of the launch.

The Lord showed me a very clear, prophetic vision about a launching pad. Before anything is shot off of a launching pad it must be in the very center of it so that it will make sure it hits the destination. Before the people at NASA launch a rocket or space shuttle into space, they make sure it is in the center of the pad and that everything is working properly. When everything is aligned properly, then there is a sudden shifting in, and the rocket or space shuttle is shot with the great acceleration into space.

2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."

This is the year of self-positioning, not self-promoting. God knows the perfect timing and when we are ready for our launch. This is a year that the shifting is about to happen in our lives and ministries. There will be an acceleration and an abundance that will come from a "suddenly" moment in our life.

I felt the Lord say in March and April that we will start to see numerous people who have been in the season of seeking the Lord through prayer and fasting and reading of the Word, step into a "suddenly" moment. Many people will start to walk in the supernatural things of God that look impossible in the natural.

The Lord spoke to me that this is going to be a year that many people would do great exploits for Him that naturally they have never had the courage to do. The Lord spoke to Joshua, in Joshua 1:6,-7 & 9, and told him to be strong and full of courage and do not be dismayed because the Lord is with you wherever you go.

The Lord speaks to Joshua and said, "As I was with Moses, I will always be with you" (verse 5). Moses led the children of Israel on a 40-year journey that should've only taken 12 days. He never prepared the people to take the promises of God and take the Promised Land. After Moses passed away Joshua took the reins and the Lord told him to prepare the people's heart, listen to Him, send the priests and the ark in front to the Jordan River and watch what He says and does because they had never gone that way before (Joshua 3).

The priests standing in the Jordan is symbolic of the American Church going half way but not completing going into the Promised Land. 

God is raising up a company of Joshua-minded people who will lead America into the Promised Land. We must have Revival and Awakening in our land. In America we are about to enter into a season that we have to understand what the Lord is saying because we have never gone this way before and we've never done it this way before.

A few weeks ago the Lord said to "Make sure that you are fully awakened to the purposes and the plans that I've spoken to you and I will do all that I said that I was going to do."

When the Lord said this, I was stirred with excitement for all of the great things that we are about to experience through God in America. Then the Lord said, "Yes, you and so many others are pregnant, dated with the purpose and a dream that I have given you, but do not push prematurely. Just like when a woman gives birth a month or two early, yes the baby will live but it needs to be developed full-term." 

The Lord said, "In the right season just like I told Joshua, when you position yourself on the launching pad, I will launch you and many others to see all that I have for America in this year."

The Lord has also been speaking to me about "supernatural thinkers". When the Lord gives you a vision or dream, never try to figure out how you are going to do it in the natural. What the Lord is about to do in this day and hour is going to be done by the supernatural power and hand of God.

God is going to make key alignments amongst people and ministries to advance the Kingdom of God in this hour. Remember my friends, the launching pad is the place of prayer!

Amazing Underwater Dead Sea Footage ✡ "The Mountains Did Tremble" - JERUSALEM365

Then the earth did shake and quake, the foundations also of the mountains did tremble;
they were shaken, because He was wroth

PSALMS (18:8)

וַתִּגְעַשׁ וַתִּרְעַשׁ הָאָרֶץ וּמוֹסְדֵי הָרִים יִרְגָּזוּ
וַיִּתְגָּעֲשׁוּ כִּי חָרָה לו

תהילים יח:ח

va-tig-ash va-tir-ash ha-a-retz u-mo-s'-day ha-reem yir-ga-zu va-yit-ga-a-shu kee kha-rah lo

Jerusalem Inspiration

David sings a song of gratitude to God after defeating his enemies. Sometimes God’s support is in the form of a ‘still small voice’ (I Kings 19:12); other times it shakes the very foundations of the world. In Israel, there have been a number of quakes which shook the earth over the years. The Dead Sea, for example, is a result of a cataclysmic rift in the earth’s crust, a result of the shifting of plates under the surface. This shift produced mountain ranges and volcanoes in the Golan Heights, as well as deep fissures. The Dead Sea was formed from one of these fissures, and is the world's largest hypersaline lake.  Aside from being a fantastic vacation destination, the waters of the Dead Sea have been proven to have a host of healing powers.  Feel Israel on your skin with our most popular Dead Sea products!

The Deep Dead Sea:

This is just incredible! Check out this footage taken underwater by divers exploring the bottom of the Dead Sea.

Something Old Something New?

With only six seeds recovered from excavations at the Masada fortification in the 1960s, one scientist set out to cultivate a Judean date palm.  The result will fascinate you.

Olive Wood Pendants

These fabulous olive wood pendant necklaces with the Star of David come in two sizes, small and large. Both sizes have a flat olive wood base, in all of the wood’s striking, unique coloring, and have a pewter Star of David appended to the front to adorn it. The pendants come with a leather cord, a strong way of hanging a bold pendant around one’s neck.

"Streets of the City Shall Be Filled" ✡ Zechariah's Prophecy is Coming True Right Now - ISRAEL365

So said the Lord of Hosts: Old men and women
shall yet sit in the streets of Jerusalem ...
And the streets of the city shall be filled,
with boys and girls playing in its streets.


כֹּה אָמַר יְהֹוָה צְבָאוֹת עֹד יֵשְׁבוּ זְקֵנִים וּזְקֵנוֹת בִּרְחֹבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם... וּרְחֹבוֹת הָעִיר יִמָּלְאוּ יְלָדִים וִילָדוֹת מְשַׂחֲקִים בִּרְחֹבֹתֶיהָ

זְכַרְיָה ח:ד-ה

ko a-mar a-do-nai tz'-va-ot od yaysh-vu z'-kay-neem u-z'-kay-not bir-kho-vot y'-ru-sha-la-yim ... u-r'-kho-vot ha-eer yi-mal-u y'-la-deem v'-y'-la-dot m'-sa-kha-keem bir-kho-vo-te-kha

Today's Israel Inspiration

How exciting to see Zechariah's vision being fulfilled in our own generation! After 2,000 years of desolation, the streets of Jerusalem are alive and "filled with boys and girls playing," exactly as foreseen by our prophets. With the miraculous renewal comes an obligation to care for those who are struggling. A sobering report shows that 776,500 children, or 1 out of 3, are living below the poverty line in Israel. TikvaHope ("Tikvah" is Hebrew for hope) comes to the aid of disadvantaged children and struggling families. TikvaHope's unique and comprehensive approach gives children the nourishment, learning and support they need to succeed, while their parents receive training and counseling to improve their financial stability and strengthen the family unit.

The Children are Ready to Rebuild the Temple

When will the third Holy Temple be rebuilt? Today’s youth are already linking arms together and putting aside all differences, ready to rebuild. This is the generation that will rebuild the Holy Temple.

IDF Soldiers Serve Up Kindness at Local Soup Kitchens

IDF soldiers from every battalion are getting hands-on lessons in helping the needy. From delivering food packages to serving patrons in soup kitchens and more, this is a lesson for life, for all societies.

Shabbat Table Painting

Challah and candlesticks are two of the most iconic symbols of the Sabbath. Together they transform the home into a palace awaiting the Shabbat Queen.
"The Shabbat Table" by Jordana Klein uses bold colors, streaming up to a Challah and Shabbat candlesticks, to illustrate how joyful the Shabbat can be. This 10″x14″ canvas print would look amazing hanging up beside the candlesticks or on the wall next to any Shabbat table.

Today's Israel Photo

A bike ride along Jerusalem's light rail tracks. Though not as popular a pasttime as in Tel Aviv (due to Jerusalem's hillier terrain), cycling in Jerusalem is quite doable if you stick to the flatter, more central routes, with a few bike rental shops!

U.S. Christian Groups Support Muslim Refugees, Ignore Persecuted Christians - by Raymond Ibrahim

Raymond Ibrahim

U.S. Christian Groups Support Muslim Refugees, Ignore Persecuted Christians

According to recently released figures from the State Dept., the United States has let in a miniscule number of Christian refugees from Syria — only 34 — during the four years since the Islamic State began its campaign of mass slaughter.  Put differently, although Christians amount for 10 percent of Syria’s population—and so should at least be 10 percent of the refugees accepted into the States—only two percent of those accepted are Christians.
This disparity is being ignored by influential U.S. Christian groups.  The Church World Service (CWS) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have both called for the resettlement of 100,000 Syrian refugees in the United States next year.   Yet advocacy for especially persecuted Christians is lacking among these U.S. Christian organizations.
The CWS, for example, does not even mention the special plight of Christians on its website’s call to help Syrian refugees; it primarily features pictures of Muslims. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops — which touts itself as the world’s largest refugee resettlement organization and even received $80 million from the federal government in 2014 for its Migration Fund — also often fails to mention Christians in its public advocacy for the resettlement of Syrian refugees.
Refugee Resettlement Watch charges that “The Bishops [of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops] surely are not telling local priests and parishioners that they are raking in millions of dollars of cold hard cash from federal taxpayers for refugee resettlement activities.  And, they aren’t telling them that they are NOT advocating to save the persecuted Christians of Syria through this program” (emphasis in original).
When the Catholic hierarchy does mention persecuted Christians, they are often lumped in with every other group, including Muslim majorities.   This approach begins with Pope Francis.  Last September, when he stood before the world at the United Nations, his energy was, once again, spent on defending the environment.  In his entire speech, which lasted nearly 50 minutes, only once did Francis make reference to persecuted Christians—and he merged their sufferings in the same sentence with the supposedly equal sufferings of “members of the majority religion,” that is, Sunni Muslims (the only group not to be attacked by the Islamic State, a Sunni organization).  Said Francis:
I must renew my repeated appeals regarding to the painful situation of the entire Middle East, North Africa and other African countries, where Christians, together with other cultural or ethnic groups, and even members of the majority religion who have no desire to be caught up in hatred and folly, have been forced to witness the destruction of their places of worship, their cultural and religious heritage, their houses and property, and have faced the alternative either of fleeing or of paying for their adhesion to good and to peace by their own lives, or by enslavement.
In the real world, however, “members of the majority religion”—Sunnis—are not being slaughtered, beheaded, and raped for refusing to renounce their faith; are not having their mosques bombed and burned; are not being jailed or killed for apostasy, blasphemy, or proselytization.  Quite the contrary, “members of the majority religion” are responsible for committing dozens of atrocities against Christian minorities every single month all throughout the Islamic world.
From a strictly humanitarian point of view, then—and humanitarianism is the chief reason being cited in accepting refugees—far from being lumped in with “members of the majority religion,” Christians should receive top priority simply because they are the most persecuted group, as repeated studies have shown.
At the hands of the Islamic State and in Syria alone, Christians have been repeatedly forced to renounce Christ or die; they have been enslaved and sold on sex slave markets; they have hadmore than 400 of their churches desecrated and destroyed.
If Christian minorities are true refugees, most Muslims are to a large extent economic migrants not fleeing real persecution but arriving from safe locales such as Turkey.  Moreover, roughly 97-98 percent of those being accepted as refugees into the U.S. are Sunni Muslims—the same sect that ISIS, which supposedly precipitated the refugee crisis, belongs to.  And many of them, unsurprisingly, share the same vision of relentless jihad on the infidel—such as the “refugees” who murdered some 120 people in France, or the “refugees” who persecute Christian minorities in European camps and slaughter them in their beds, or the “refugees” who drown Christian migrants in the sea, or the ISIS-affiliated Sunni jihads who massacred over a dozen Americans at a Christmas party in San Bernardino.
In short, the refugee resettlement system egregiously discriminates against those who are most deserving of sanctuary and refugee status.  Yet little is said or done by pro-resettlement U.S. Christian groups to address, much less correct, this problem.
If influential Christian organizations are ignoring the discrimination against or at least indifference to Christian refugees, the Obama administration’s policies should not be surprising.  Aside from the fact that 98 percent of refugees being accepted into the U.S. are Sunni Muslims and only two percent are Christian—a skewed ratio based on Syria’s demographics—consider:
Days before the disparity against Christian refugees was revealed, President Obama lashed out against the idea of giving preference to Christian refugees, describing it as “shameful”: “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” loftily admonished the president—even as the exact opposite was occurring: Muslims were getting every preference over Christians.
Such open hypocrisy can stand when influential Christian groups—they who are most responsible for speaking up for savagely persecuted Christian minorities—engage in it themselves.
