Grieving Mother Defiantly Vows to Stick It to Hamas by Having More Children - Israel Today

Grieving Mother Defiantly Vows to Stick It to Hamas by Having More Children

Sunday, December 16, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff
Where one has fallen, many more shall rise.
Shira Ish-Ran, 21, recently experienced every mother's nightmare. She was the most critically-wounded of seven victims resulting from last week's terrorist drive-by shooting in central Samaria.
While Shira survived, her 30-week-old baby boy, delivered via emergency Cesarean section following the attack, did not.
Such an experience would cause most people to crumble and lose all hope.
Not Shira Ish-Ran.
A day after her prematurely-born son died, this resolute Jewish woman vowed to stick it to the Palestinian terrorists who had visited upon her such pain and suffering by having "many more babies."
While it remains unclear which Palestinian terror group was responsible for the shooting, Hamas issued a public statement praising the atrocity as "heroic."
Shira was having none of it. Speaking to local media after burying her baby, she said: "I will prove to them, I will show them. I will bring many more babies into this world. Am Yisrael chai."
The goal of such terrorist attacks is to scare Jews away from resettling their biblical heartland. They often have the exact opposite effect, as Shira Ish-Ran demonstrated.

The Mayflower and the Jews ✡ "The Land That He Had Promised On Oath" - Israel365

And us He freed from there, that He might take us and give us the land that He had promised on oath to our fathers
Deuteronomy 6:23 (The Israel Bible™)

וְאוֹתָנוּ הוֹצִיא מִשָּׁם לְמַעַן הָבִיא אֹתָנוּ לָתֶת לָנוּ אֶת־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעלַאֲבֹתֵינוּ
Hear the verse in Hebrew

v’-o-TA-nu ho-TZEE mi-SHAM l’-MA-an ha-VEE o-TA-nu LA-tet LA-nu et ha-A-retz
nish-BA la-a-vo-TAY-nu

The Mayflower and the Jews

Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, summed up this verse in a speech he gave to the Peel Commission in 1936. “Three-hundred years ago, there came to the New World a boat, and its name was the Mayflower. The Mayflower’s landing on Plymouth Rock was one of the great historical events in the history of England and in the history of America. But I would like to ask any Englishman sitting here on the commission, what date did the Mayflower leave port? How many people were on the boat? Who were their leaders? What kind of food did they eat on the boat? More than three-thousand three-hundred years ago, long before the Mayflower, our people left Egypt, and every Jew in the world, wherever he is, knows what day they left. And he knows what food they ate. And we still eat that food with every anniversary. And we know who our leader was. And we sit down and tell the story to our children and grandchildren, in order to guarantee that it will never be forgotten. And we say our two slogans: ‘Now we may be enslaved, but next year, we'll be a free people.’ … Now we are in the prison of the Soviet Union. Now, we're in Germany where Hitler is destroying us. Now we’re scattered throughout the world, but next year, we’ll be in Jerusalem. There'll come a day that we'll come home to Zion, to the Land of Israel. That is the nature of the Jewish people.” Read The Israel Bible Daily Inspirations devotional to discover more connections between the Bible and contemporary Jewish history.

'A Downpour of God's Love Is Coming' - JOE JOE DAWSON CHARISMA NEWS

'A Downpour of God's Love Is Coming'

In a time of corporate prayer, the Lord spoke this to me, "Download. Downpour. But not downsize." As I continued to pray, I saw a vision of a barren land. It was very dry and desolate but I could tell that there was seed in the ground. Then, suddenly a downpour of rain came and replenished the land. This downpour brought renewal and refreshing. I believe there is a downpour coming to many people. A downpour of God's love is coming to wash away the hard places in your heart and lies you have believed. This downpour of God's love will also wash away hurt, pain and resentment that has held many people back for so long. There is also a downpour of blessing coming. Many have been faithfully sowing for many years, but this downpour of blessing is coming for you to reap. This downpour will water those seeds of destiny and increase that have already been planted.
Many people want to move forward but they are missing key insight from heaven. You know how it is when you want to use a new app or system on your phone; you have to download it first. Sometimes the download takes a minute. But until the download is complete, you cannot use your device the way you want to. If we try to move forward before the download is complete, we will not be able to fully operate the way that we know we should. Then we will become frustrated and take a step back; therefore, they downsize. We must wait and trust God's timing, then move forward when we have fully received the download from God. I believe God is giving many people a download from heaven during this season that will help them function at a higher level. A download from heaven is being given to the body of Christ to move us forward.
I have seen many people in life, ministry and business experience a few rough seasons and downsize. There are times in life that you have to stand firm on the prophetic word that God has spoken over your life. Even when it looks impossible in the natural, remember to see with spiritual eyes and believe the promise. A downpour of God's love and blessing is coming your way. Then a download from God is going to come and make you operate at a higher level. And during the process, as you're waiting on the downpour and the download, do not shrink back, give up or downsize. Don't move forward just to move back. I'm telling you, my friends, stay firm and hold onto what God has promised you!

The Grief, Pain, and Sorrow of Holidays - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

The Grief, Pain, and Sorrow of Holidays
Now Think On This
Steve Martin

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation." (Psalm 91:14-16, NKJV)

The winter Saturday had been rather long, though the daylight hours were shorter now. Our Dachshund dog woke me up at 3:00 am, needing to go out. After a time of Bible reading and prayer, I had to wait until 6:30 am to go to WalMart when they opened. I had forgotten my 20“x24” poster frame at the self-serve checkout counter the day before. (I know. How can you forget an item that big when you leave? Don’t know. I just did.)

Long-time-no-see nephew and niece-in-law came by the house a few hours later, after picking up their oldest daughter (of five girls, and one son) from the college campus dorm in a town nearby. With them having a full house, my childhood days helped realize a few their days. We had a truly delightful time with them. All eight. Their husband/dad had just gotten home from his fourth or fifth tour of duty the week before - Afghanistan (2x), Iraq (1) and Bosnia (1) or the years. So I guess that is four, unless I missed one. That I may have forgotten too.

Needing more photos frames for an idea I had made another trip to Walmart necessary (no advertising dollars for this plug given this way). By late afternoon I had completed my gift wrapping of 19 presents, fed the dog, ate the leftover chicken wings from a family Christmas party the night before, and told my good wife I needed to shut my eyes for a few minutes after she got home from her shopping.

Sitting in my regular prayer chair, I closed my eyes, anticipating a power nap. It didn’t happen.

This grief, pain and deep sorrow then came over me. I quickly realized it wasn’t any of my emotions coming to the surface, buried far below from days gone by. I had no reason to feel that, given the joy, peace, and love from God the Father in my life recently. Someone else was experiencing this.

This Holy Spirit word of knowledge, which often comes as a thought, word or emotion “out of nowhere”, was given to me to start interceding for another. I knew not who, or where they were. They, at that moment, or within a few days prior or forthcoming, were suffering from loss, and maybe exceptional rejection. Holy Spirit knew their need and knew I was available.

The holiday season wasn’t the joy, peace, and love that they wanted so bad to have too. And needed so much to experience. They were hurting.

Maybe a very close loved one had passed during this season in years gone by; or a spiteful rejection by a longtime friend left them clinging to any glimpse of hope they could grip onto, possibly loneliness from not having family or friends nearby, as others did, was enveloping their spiritual being. 

Whatever the reason, one of these events or another trauma was causing this very real moment in time hopelessness, helplessness, and gut-wrenching emotional pain. I could really sense it in my spirit, coming from Holy Spirit.

Praying in tongues was my immediate reaction. God the Father was reaching out to embrace this one, who was needing to now know of His longtime committed love for them. Whether they knew Him or not, He fully knew them and was there to bring comfort and healing balm to their soul.

Maybe this is you? Maybe it is a bad memory, an unresolved, rejected relationship lost; or a Christmas went wrong that you never, ever want to remember or experience again. Please know that our God knows, and is wanting to reach out to you, bringing His love, peace, and joy into your heart right now, right at this moment.

Here are the full Bible verses of Psalm 91 for you to read.

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust."
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place,
no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation." (Psalm 91, NKJV)

I have known deep loss. I have suffered rejection by ones who once called me their good friend. I am sure you have too.

You can be healed from this. You can forgive, and also receive forgiveness for anything on your end. It is not the end of the world. It can be the new beginning, whether you or 22 or 72.

May my prayer, and others so led and directed by Holy Spirit Himself, bring you the restoration and emotional surgery that you so long to acquire. May this be a true season of joy, peace, and love, as it was meant to be.

In Jesus, it certainly can.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
