The wake up call - ONE FOR ISRAEL




Dr. Erez Soref, President of ONE FOR ISRAEL 
Shalom!

This week, we want to share with you the powerful story of Igal, an Israeli man who should have died, but was saved by a fellow soldier who took his place. He was shocked about how the rabbis dealt with his friend's death, which led him on a road of awakening - to what it was that Yeshua the Messiah had done for him by dying in his place. There is no greater love!

Why is there such a gulf between the rabbis and Jesus?

What if the actual reason why the Rabbis rejected Jesus is being hidden from you? Jesus was the only one who dared to stand up against the religious oppression by breaking down the walls that rabbinical tradition had put up. Jesus opened the door to God for everyone. Continue reading...


Biblical Archaeological Treasures: Signed, Sealed and Delivered!

Hebrew University archaeologist, Eilat Mazar, came across a cave full of treasures during excavations below the Temple Mount's southern wall. The cave contained coins bearing interesting messages, and close by, in the same dig, seals from King Hezekiah and possibly Isaiah the Prophet have been found! Continue reading...

Picture a Day - The Holy Land Revealed 

Israel's History - a Picture a Day (Beta)


Posted: 29 Apr 2018 10:15 PM PDT

The Enigmatic Photograph from the Library of Congress:
Lag B'Omer & Jewish Children’s Parade exactly 100 years Ago

Jewish children's procession -- where, why, when?
Among the thousands of very old and recently digitalized pictures from a Library of Congress collection of photos from Palestine, there is this captivating picture.
All the original Library of Congress caption explained was that the picture was taken between 1910 and 1930 and that it is  a “Group of children and adults in procession in street, some holding a banner with a Star of David.” 

Today, the caption reads: Procession may have taken place on April 30, 1918, on Lag Ba'Omer, when visits were traditionally made to the tomb. British army tents in background, indicate year of 1918. (Source: L. Ben-David, Israel's History - A Picture a Day website, August 19, 2011) 
Title devised by Library staff. (Source: L. Ben-David, Israel's History - A Picture a Day website, August 19, 2011)

Who are the hundreds of children?  Why are the boys and girls separated?  Where are they marching to? Where is this picture taken? And why is there a tent compound on the left horizon?

Photo analysis and comparison to an aerial photograph from 1931 and contemporary pictures indicate that the children are walking south on the Nablus Road (Derech Shchem) in the direction of the Damascus Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem. Behind them is the road that veers to the right toward Mt. Scopus.  The road leads to a neighborhood built around the grave of a High Priest named Shimon the Righteous  (Hatzadik) who lived in the days of the Second Temple.  


The boys and girls come from ultra-Orthodox schools, evidenced by the boys’ hats and frocks. The girls are wearing ultra-Orthodox fashion: shapeless, modest smocks. But wait, the second batch of girls, those behind the Star of David banner (might they be from a “Zionist” school?) are wearing more stylish dresses and hats.
Enlargement of the army camp. Note the permanent 
structure surrounded by tents.
The tents belong to a British army camp after they defeated the Turks in 1917 and were deployed along the northern ridges stretching from Nebi Samuel to the Mount of Olives. The compound appears similar to other British army compounds in Library of Congress photographs.   
The day started off cool, and the girls have shed their sweaters.  It’s a warm Spring day, and from the shadows it’s probably around 2 PM. 

Shimon Hatzadik's tomb today (Israel
In fact, the day was Tuesday, April 30, 1918.  The procession is almost certainly an organized outing of several Jerusalem schools taking place on Lag Ba’Omer, four weeks after Passover.  Traditionally, on Lag Ba’Omer Jews flock to the Galilee mountaintop of Meiron to the grave of Shimon Bar Yochai, one of the most famous scholars in the Talmud.  But some 100 years ago, travel to Meiron would have taken days.  Instead, the children took a hike to Shimon Hatzadik’s grave, a known custom 100 years ago in Jerusalem.

The picture was taken just four months after the British forces captured the city of Jerusalem. The city's Jewish residents received the soldiers as their saviors -- saving them from severe hunger and deadly diseases. The children had much to celebrate.

Veteran Jerusalemite Shmulik Huminer wrote in his memoirs:
“Anyone who could travel to Meiron on Lag Ba’Omer would go, and there take place miracles and wonders.  But the residents of Jerusalem who couldn’t afford to travel to Meiron have as compensation the cave of Shimo Hatzadik located at the edge of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood north of the Old City.”
Today, Lag Ba’Omer is a day when Jewish children still go out to parks and forests to celebrate.  In Jerusalem, many traditional Jews still visit Shimon’s grave.

were added to the buildings over the years. (IDP)

Christy Johnston: "Call Them Home: A New Day for the Nation of Israel!"

The Elijah List Apr 30, 2018

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
God loves Israel and they are highly favored from Him.
As Israel is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year of becoming their own country...there is much to be praying for and speaking over this God-blessed land.
Christy Johnston of Australia had an awesome dream encounter with the Lord and shares:
This year marks the 70th year of independence for the nation of Israel. Significantly, the number 70 is prophetic for freedom and the fulfillment of a time or cycle. I believe this remarkable season of time is where the Father is calling out to Israel to experience their TRUE freedom in the revelation of Yeshua. I believe we, as His adopted sons and daughters, are to call their hearts to awaken to His name.
We are heading to Israel ourselves in June on this 70th year for our Elijah List Prophetic Israel Tour with Lance Wallnau and Steve Swanson...we can't wait! It's going to be a significant time to be there!
Let's all keep praying over Israel...the apple of God's eye. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

I had a powerful encounter dream recently that has branded my heart in ways I was not expecting. In the dream, I was standing in a downpour of rain, when suddenly I saw Jesus standing directly in front of me. The interesting thing was He was not simply standing in the rain, He WAS the rain. His beautiful face had formed through the droplets falling in front of me. I sensed such a powerful authority as He then spoke to me very clearly, and with a profound weightiness. He spoke this three times and said, "Christy, they will hear My name in the rain. They will hear My name in the rain. They will hear My name in the rain."
The Latter Rain
"He is stirring the hearts of the nation of Israel and those of the lost and positioning them to reap a harvest of souls like we have never seen before."
Instinctively, I knew in this dream that He was referring to the nation of Israel, the Jewish people. It was at that very moment that I woke up to the sound of a thunderous downpour of rain falling heavily upon our roof and I began weeping. His presence in this dream had so overwhelmed me as He had pierced my heart with an intense intercession for the nation of Israel. I began crying out for them in the middle of the night. The Holy Spirit then led me to Hosea 6:3 which says:
"Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord (to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him). His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the heavy rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth."
I believe that Jesus is declaring it is a time of rain on the dry hearts of those who don't yet know Him, including the people of Israel.
Harvest Over Israel
He also led me to Isaiah 55:10-11"For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it to bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void (without producing any effect, useless), but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." (Photo via Unsplash)
These two Scriptures both point prophetically to harvest. I believe the significance of this dream was speaking of the latter rain – the harvest rain that has been long prophesied. The Holy Spirit is moving in power in these days as the latter rain begins to fall. It's the rain of the outpouring of His Spirit, whereby the nation of Israel and those who have been lost, will recognize the name of Jesus in the harvest. They will recognize His name as the rain of His Spirit pours forth across the earth over His sons and daughters. They will see His name in us.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
As Isaiah 55:10-11 mentions both the rain and the Word, I recognize that the Father is speaking here of Jesus. Jesus is the Word made manifest and He is the "Lord of the Harvest." He is stirring the hearts of the nation of Israel and those of the lost, and positioning them to reap a harvest of souls like we have never seen before.
Out of Captivity – A New Day for the Nation of Israel
"I believe that Jesus is declaring it is a time of rain on the dry hearts of those who don't yet know Him, including the people of Israel."
This year marks the 70th year of independence for the nation of Israel. Significantly, the number 70 is prophetic for freedom and the fulfillment of a time or cycle. I believe this remarkable season of time is where the Father is calling out to Israel to experience their TRUE freedom in the revelation of Yeshua. I believe we, as His adopted sons and daughters, are to call their hearts to awaken to His name.
Recently, I have discovered a wealth of testimonial videos where Messianic Jews are sharing their experience of discovering Isaiah 53 and the revelation of Yeshua in this chapter. I feel strongly to call upon the intercession of the Church to pray to awaken the heart of Israel, in their 70th year of freedom, to the revelation of His name and the righteousness of His person. Just as Hosea 6:3 states, I pray they would recognize and hear His name in the rain that pours forth across the earth in this time of increased harvest.
Israel has just entered into a new era where things will begin to accelerate and be fast-tracked. God's heart for His people is to see them come into the fullness of their destiny as the marker for the nations on the earth. It's a time that the Father is calling this great nation out of spiritual drought and captivity into TRUE freedom in the revelation of Yeshua as their awaited Messiah and Savior. There is a major awakening that is beginning to emerge where the veil that has kept His people in the dark is being removed and they will encounter Jesus in a powerful way, sending waves of healing and truth throughout the land. It is a new day for the nation of Israel.
A Call of Intercession for Israel and the Lost
I feel to release a call of intercession for Israel. I want to ask you to intercede for Israel with me. As they celebrate the significance of their freedom, I believe the Holy Spirit is releasing a CALL to PRAY for their salvation. A call to pray and CALL THEM HOME! I heard the Holy Spirit speak to my heart, "As you pray for My beloved Israel and call them home, I will rain upon the hearts of your beloved ones and call them home also." (Photo via Unsplash)
I believe this call of intercession will release a double portion effect of freedom. Freedom from captivity for not only the sons and daughters of Israel, but for our own sons and daughters as well. It is the showering rain of harvest upon the entire earth as the Holy Spirit covers the earth with the latter rain. Will you pray with me?
Pray for the hearts of Israel to awaken to the truth of Yeshua. Pray for their protection in this time of increased opposition. Pray for them to recognize His name in the rain. Call home the sons and daughters who have walked away from the truth – both of Israel and our own loved ones.
I encourage you to write, "I AM CALLING THEM HOME" as a declaration that you are standing with Israel in prayer. I also ask you to WRITE the names of your own family members who you are calling home as a declaration of their hearts awakening to Jesus. Let's CALL UPON THE HARVEST RAIN TOGETHER!
