God is doing a work in you as you wrestle in this season. You are increasing in favor with God even as you fight for righteousness to prevail in this election fraud. This chapter of history has caused deep divisions within the church. I say that’s good actually. The Apostle Paul wrote that God uses divisions among His people in order to identify those that are “approved.” Approved for what? I’ll explain. PLUS I’ve got an important update on Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia!

JERUSALEM, Israel – One of Jerusalem’s most iconic sites is the Tower of David at the entrance of the Old City. This ancient citadel is getting its first major overhaul in hundreds of years.
“This is a rare and unique opportunity for archaeologists because we have a lot of questions about the citadel, archaeological questions, historical questions and not every day you get the chance to explore a symbol in Jerusalem,” Amit Re’em, Jerusalem’s Chief Archeologist told CBN News. “The David Citadel Museum, the citadel, is a symbol. This is the struggle of Jerusalem.”
Re’em is overseeing this massive project.
“Suddenly, the stones start to speak,” he said. “We are excavating…We discover hidden passages, ancient walls, ancient fortifications. It’s become alive.”
The coronavirus pandemic has brought virtually no tourists to Israel, giving experts the unique opportunity to conserve and renovate the site.
“It’s a huge project to renew this museum for the future visitors,” Eilat Lieber, Director of the Tower of David Museum said. “Of course, we’re talking about seven new galleries, which tell the story of Jerusalem, but it’s more than this.”
Lieber is looking forward to one-day welcoming tourists to the newly renovated site.
The last major construction project on the citadel goes back to Suleiman the Magnificent during the 1500s who rebuilt this fortification and the walls of the Old City. It is a timepiece of Jerusalem.
“You can see the layers upon layers upon layers and understand the beauty of the evidence, the archaeology, and the history together, the combination is really unique,” said Lieber.
Re’em says visiting the citadel is critical to learning about the history of Jerusalem. He and his team of archaeologists working in the site have already found relics of the pat, past including a 1,000-year-old private toilet that was probably used by the commander of the citadel.
The renewal project is uncovering hidden treasures and secrets of ancient Jerusalem. One hidden passageway may have been used by Crusaders to escape the Citadel.
“Every time I’m here, I just imagine that in the time of trouble, all knights – all the crusader knights, all the Muslim knights, running away in this dark tunnel, emerging outside the city,” Re’em said.
The citadel also holds a place called the Kishle where now many believe Jesus was brought before King Herod.
“If you look in ancient Christian sources from the 5th, 6th century AD. They describe the way of the suffering starting on Mount Zion, going in approximately direct access towards the north, towards the Holy Sepulcher. Meaning passing today the area of the citadel and the area of Herod’s palace,” Re’em explained. “On the way, they described the Praetorian, the place of the sentence. Meaning, in ancient Christian times, people saw the place of the Praetorian probably around Mount Zion, or today, in [the] Jewish Quarter, Armenian Quarter, Herod’s Palace.”
“It’s only natural to assume that when Pontius Pilate came to Jerusalem, where did he sit? He sat in a luxurious place, in the former Herod’s Palace in Jerusalem, right here. And, maybe, just maybe, the sentence of Christ happened here,” he continued.
The renewal project’s goal is to bring the story of Jerusalem to life.
“I’m sure that the combination which takes new exhibit rooms, which tell the history of Jerusalem from [the] ancient period until [the] modern period, with the combination of archaeology that you see right before your eyes, this is the perfect combination. And the visitor will have here the ultimate experience before they enter to visit Jerusalem. You must visit here,” said Re’em.
The project will take two years to complete but when tourists do return to Israel, the museum will be open.

We are NOT going back to Egypt. We are crossing the RED Sea. – Love For His People newsletter
Nov. 14, 2020 Charlotte, North Carolina USA
Greetings to our Love For His People family and friends.
A few days ago I sent you a word I had entitled, “It ain’t over till it’s over – Cross the RED Sea.” (If you hadn’t read it, here it is: It Ain’t Over, or read it again.)
As these days string out with the legal counts being tabulated across the USA, and exposure of the fraud rightly coming to light in the election, I want to encourage you with this word now: Back To Egypt?
People of God don’t quit. We don’t look at the giants in the land and sit down and cry. We don’t deny our God, by saying what HE SAID isn’t going to happen, and the prophets got it all wrong.
WE JUST DON’T DO THAT.
We stand strong. Head held high except when bowed down in prayer, and looking to see the hand of the Lord God of Almighty move. He is the same God of Moses, King David, the prophet Elijah, and the Messiah Jesus (Yeshua).
He can and will move mountains, shake the nations, and bring the fulfillment of His plans and purposes, for NOTHING and NO ONE can stop our God.
We won’t quit believing. We will see God stand up and roar His voice in the nations.
Be encouraged. Have faith. Share this with others who need some too now.
Ahava and shalom, Steve Martin

“Back To Egypt?” – Time To Act by Steve Martin
“It so happened that after Pharaoh released the people, God didn’t lead them by the road through the land of the Philistines, which was the shortest route, for God thought, “If the people encounter war, they’ll change their minds and go back to Egypt.” Exodus 13:17, THE MESSAGE
You get in a tight spot. You think you can’t hold on. You want to quit and just go back to where and what you thought were “easier days.”
We all have been in those situations where the Lord has led us. He has guided us. He has brought us “out” to take us to a better place, for His plans and purposes to be fulfilled. And yet…we struggle to keep the faith, hold the line, stay in belief and not waver in His words.
We want to go back to Egypt.
During these times of political turmoil, many will begin to doubt, if not already, the prophetic words the Lord gave to His prophets in our day, in regard to the spiritual warfare we are in. We have heard the promises spoken by reputable, trusted, proven men and women of God, who have heard the Lord through visions, dreams, and prophetic utterance; spoken it forth as they are rightly to have done, and urging us to believe.
But when we face the Red Sea, the “blue wave”, the backlash of the opponents completely standing against the Lord’s heart for America…are we going to waver in unbelief, and want to quit holding on? Saying the word was not true? They must be false prophets? Surely, they did not hear the Lord and got it wrong?
Imagine if Moses had stopped looking to the Lord, after he had obediently brought the millions of Hebrews out of Egypt, through the guidance and redemption of the Almighty God, to bring them into freedom? If he then recanted of first hearing and then acting on God’s word given to him in the desert? Now facing the Red Sea before them, the Egyptian army behind them, would he stop trusting now? Where would they have ended up? Back in Egypt?
Consider if Elijah had backed down when facing the prophets of Baal, Jezebel and Ahab, when he challenged them on Mount Carmel, to prove that what the Lord had told him to do, displaying the power of the Lord to challenge their evil ways, and chose to instead walk away in unbelief?
What if Jesus, Yeshua, the Son of God, chose not to believe His Father when He had the chance to leave the Garden of Gethsemane before the Roman soldiers came, to take Him to His death on the cross, and also just escape away? Or if He had chosen to not trust and obey the will of the Father, to redeem mankind with His death on the cross, and not believe in the resurrection that was to follow?
We have heard the Word of the Lord through His modern-day prophets, through the gifts of men and women He has given to us in our day, to speak His word clearly and boldly. We have received His heart of grace and mercy, desiring to save the United States by raising up a president who fearlessly has carried out His plans for so many – the unborn, the land of Israel, the poor and oppressed.
Are we now going to back down, choose instead to go back to Egypt, give up as the fight continues to rage on? We must not. We cannot. We will not give in to the lies of the enemy, the evil that has encompassed far too many in this land.
We must stand strong. Believe the words of the Lord spoken through His prophets in our time and see Him yet deliver His people in America and beyond.
It is time to act upon the Word, stand strong, and see His deliverance once again.
It is time to act, for that which we have been anticipating and waiting for so long is now upon us. Yes, the Lord God Almighty, the One seated on His heavenly throne, had His Hebrew prophets speak centuries ago to His people of this time.
So, what is happening that you and me need to be so observant of?
The nation of Israel was rebirth in 1948.The city of Jerusalem was united in 1967. The Holy Spirit has been poured out on the nations, as signs and wonders reveal His power and glory in our time. The One New Man is coming together, as Jews and Gentiles, believers in Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, unite.
And Jews from around the world are returning to the promised land, Israel, making Aliyah. Prophesied through Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and more…they are coming home by the thousands as it is becoming a priority for them, prompt by the Lord God of Israel Himself.
JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli archaeologists have uncovered an ancient fortress from the time of King David, giving researchers a window into one of David’s biblical allies.
The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) exposed the fortified complex in the Golan, where construction for a new neighborhood was set to begin. The archeologists believe the fort was manned by the ancient kingdom of Geshur, which ruled the southern and central Golan during the 11th and 10th centuries BC.
The kingdom of Geshur was one of King David’s allies and according to the Bible, King David married Maachah, the daughter of the king of Geshur. Their son, Absalom, fled to his mother’s native land after he murdered his half-brother.Related
“The complex we exposed was built at a strategic location on the small hilltop, above the El-Al canyon, overlooking the region, at a spot where it was possible to cross the river,” IAA Excavation Directors Barak Tzin and Enno Bron said in a statement. “The c. 1.5 m wide fort walls, built of large basalt boulders, encompassed the hill.”
There they discovered a number of artifacts, including ancient figurines and jewelry.

Geshur was an independent Aramean kingdom that appeared to worship a moon-god often depicted in the form of a bull stele. Tzin and Bron discovered stone carvings that are likely evidence of Geshur’s religious practices.

“In the excavation, we were astonished to discover a rare and exciting find: a large basalt stone with a schematic engraving of two horned figures with outspread arms. There may also be another object next to them,” they said.
In 2019, a similar stone carving was found by Dr.Rami Arav of Nebraska University at the Bethsaida Expedition Project. Bethsaida is believed to have been Geshur’s ancient capital city and the carving found there represented the moon-god.
“It is possible that a person who saw the impressive Bethsaida stele, decided to create a local copy of the royal stele,” Tzin and Bron said of the carving found in the Golan.
Israeli archaeologists are working to protect and preserve the fortified complex to enable further research and excavations
