"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD.

Towards the future, hope and charity - Israel Today

Towards the future, hope and charity

Monday, February 22, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff
It is evening and a wounded Syrian young man reaches an army base - on the Syrian side of the border! Should he not receive urgent medical treatment he would succumb to his injuries.
Troops of the IDF's 366th division were preparing to summon the division's medics when they had to determine that the wounded Syrian was one of the rebel troops and not an Islamist. They had to take the necessary precautions to ensure that the situation was genuine, without planted explosives, and not simply a ploy.
The Givati unit, responsible for the security along the Golan border, gave the green light for the treatment of the wounded Syrian. The soldiers worked quickly because time is of the essence for the Syrian with serious gunshot wounds and to them it does not matter who the person is when it comes to saving a life.
To date, over 1600 wounded Syrians have been treated in Israeli hospitals.
Many soldiers and paramedics are surprised by the severity of the wounds of many of the wounded. Especially the number of wounded women and children which make up the majority of the wounded being brought for treatment. Sometimes the soldiers find it difficult to keep their emotions under control at the sight of some of the wounded.
Aboud Dandachi, a 39-year-old engineer and a refugee now resident in Turkey, having experienced the bloody Syrian civil war first hand, has created a website called "Thank You Am Israel."
"Thank You Am Israel" reports on the support that Syrian refugees receive, either directly from the State of Israel or from Jewish organizations or groups. "My upbringing taught me that 'these people are your enemies. The Jews are evil'!!"
"After what I have seen and experienced since leaving Syria," Dandachi continued, "I have come to the realization that Jews are the most humane and generous people. We have Jews who even endanger themselves to help us. So why should I be an enemy of the Jews? They have proven that they want to be my friends. They held out their hand in friendship, so why should I be against them?"

Israeli Researcher: European Jews Have No Future

Israeli Researcher: European Jews Have No Future

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Anti-Semitism continues to rise in Europe amid a surge in popularity of extremist parties in the region, according to a new study by the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University.

The study's findings were released Monday ahead of Israel's Holocaust Memorial Day.

***For more about how Israel is educating people about the evils of the Holocaust, watch this report from CBN News' Mideast Bureau.

"Normative Jewish life in Europe is unsustainable," Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress, said in a presentation of the study's results, the Jerusalem Post reported. "Jews do not feel safe or secure in certain communities in Europe."

"The Jews in Europe do not have a future," Kantor told the Post. "I think that their future is bleak."

According to the Kantor Center, European Jews experience anti-Semitic incidents almost every day.

"According to that survey, almost half of the Jewish population is afraid of being verbally or physically attacked in a public place because they are Jewish, and 25 percent of Jews will not wear anything that identifies them as Jewish or go near a Jewish institution for fear of an attack," Kantor said.

Researchers recorded 554 violent anti-Semitic acts in 2013, including attacks on people and vandalism against synagogues, cemeteries, and other Jewish institutions.

For the second year running, France had the highest number of incidents, with Hungary, Belgium, and Sweden following close behind.

The report warns about the increasing popularity of far-right parties, especially in France, Hungary, and Greece, where they're expected to make big gains in European parliamentary elections next month.

Cutting the Un-Biblical Cord by Dr. Kluane Spake

Cutting the Un-Biblical Cord 

by Dr. Kluane Spake

Identity Network

For years, we've pushed and struggled to give birth. We've been in "transition" far too long. But, scripture tells us we no longer have to struggle to birth this promised child. Notice particularly that it is"BEFORE Zion travails - she gives birth" (Is. 66:7).  Who has heard of such a thing?
Still, we are still influenced by old thinking in our culture with certain rigid mindsets and old systems of that we don't even realize. We "labor" in vain because that is how we think it should be!
Allow the transition time end! Let that which is of God be born... We thrash about and yell out in pain... waiting and waiting.
Can that be right? Paul said, "I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you" (Gal. 4:19). When will that happen?  When will that Christ-child manifest?
We know that the moment of conception of any existing life-force, contains almost all of the determining elements of that fetus' potential. These formative genetic contributors affect the entire rest of that child's life.
The Formation of the Future Depends upon our Now
The Medieval times were extremely complex and perplexing and still affect our thoughts and choices. Their emphasis on mystical visions and encounters is perplexing. The religious masses celebrated joyous festivals with elaborate dances around Maypoles, they built overwhelmingly colossal cathedrals, pilgrimaged thousands of miles to behold relics of dead saints, burned witches, and feared dragons. Meanwhile, the holy fathers spent their lives in monastic retreats and caves, reservedly debating the "jots and tittles" that defined their doctrines of morality, ethics, and logic.
Perhaps we couldn't see all that happening - in the dark. But, the dawn has come and many proceeding truths and dimensional understandings are restored - concept by concept, our minds are renewed.
Now, we triumph over darkness. Suddenly, we hear the watchman cry, the "morning cometh!" (Is. 21:12). Dawn breaks - Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. (Ps. 108:2, NIV).  And we realize that it's time to arise and shine! (Is. 60:1).
Perhaps, our discernment was dulled and we didn't realize that birth is no longer cursed. The Man-Child is born and we have a baby in our arms!
If we allow this child to be born, then these present days of the raising up of this infant will be profitable. The way we live NOW determines the rest of the ages to come. The choices that we make now will affect the world and the church forever. The formation of the future depends upon our now.
Let's make a fresh declaration in accordance with the will of God. From every corner of the earth the "now" purposes of God must be released. This new era must demand our greatest attention, greatest passion, and greatest clarity -- now.
The question is, WHAT do we do next? How do we tackle the challenges that face us today? How do we shift and at the same time, embrace the vital necessity to corporately progress in our spiritual journey? We begin today. "Yes, the set time has come…" (Ps. 102). Everything that does not produce the LIFE of God must go!
This Child must Breathe
What we must do next is pop the baby on the bottom and get him breathing. This miraculous child must breathe - and soon. Then, it is our job to CUT THE UN-BIBLICAL CORD!
"Let's make a CLEAN BREAK with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Let's make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God" (2 Cor. 7:1 MSG).
We must CUT and sever this man-child (and ourselves) from old superstitions and belabored archaic "second day" concepts that will stunt his growth. Let's sever the strongly held myths of the past.
Cutting away from un-Biblical habits is not an action of disrespect - it is one of necessity. There's no time to debate this issue - it's time to CUT.
Ezekiel 16:4-5 describes Jerusalem, "On the day you were born your umbilical cord was NOT CUT, you weren't bathed and cleaned up, you weren't rubbed with salt, you weren't wrapped in a baby blanket. No one cared a fig for you. No one did one thing to care for you tenderly in these ways. You were thrown out into a vacant lot and left there, dirty and unwashed--a newborn nobody wanted…" (MSG). This child grew up in shame.
In our day, many of us have wanted to move further… past the limitations and superstitions of the still controlling mentalities that want to dictate Biblical interpretations. Up until now, most of us have tried to conform to the charismatic party line -- not wanting to "make too many waves," not wanting to be misunderstood or identified as a rebellious misfit, or a nonconformist!
If we, as believers, take strong action now to raise our child together --the Man/child -- the image and likeness of God on this earth, the Bride, company of apostles and prophets (already conceived and birthed by the woman - the church), who will vitally establish government and vision in the church to come.
The substance and manifestation of this New DAY is this…God raises up His answer!! Maturity is upon us. The maturity to not only conceive but to cut the cords of the past and begin to nurture this new age ourselves.
Parenting the Child
As the older Naomi took Obed (servant nature) to nurse and to suckle, we must endow this child with all that he needs to develop and be released into destiny. As we reach out in faith, we will be given a Divine supply.
We're chosen to be part of God's vital current plan and parent this child. How do we do that? By exemplifying and walking as that NEW CREATION. By overcoming evil with good. By epitomizing LOVE.
The controversy with Marcion and the differing Gnostic sects gave even greater impetus to the priestly control of theology and thought. In order to maintain control and stop division, the orthodox defense was to establish Apostolic Authority - and that meant that only a select few priests could read Scripture and define it. Their interpretations, called "Oral Tradition," ruled the church and became the main standard for further interpretations - even though this usually didn't agree with the written gospels.
Official Scriptures were kept in Latin and Greek and carefully guarded in order to prevent the ordinary people from understanding or interpreting differently than they were instructed. During that time, the laity could not read…and they were not allowed to have even a verse a scripture in their possession.
Over the centuries, we've slowly emerged from these controlling limitations. Wycliffe (1339-1384) was persecuted for translating the Scriptures into a common language. So threatening was his work, that 44 years after Wycliffe died, the Pope ordered his bones exhumed and burned. Peasants were hunted and killed for possessing pieces of cloth with the Word of God written in their own language. Private interpretation was totally forbidden. Hundreds of years later, Luther translated the Bible and said, "I have undertaken to translate the Bible into German. This was good for me; otherwise I might have died in the mistaken notion that I was a learned fellow." Then, Luther broke away from the authority of the papacy. For centuries, continual wars have ensued over religion and the lack of freedom to allow other interpretations of the Bible.
But, we've scrutinized the scriptures for what might be ahead. Proverbs says, "So teach us God, to NUMBER our days (Ps. 90:12)." That caused us to analyze the progression and typology of the feasts, the covenants, the offerings, and the sacrifices - We saw the truth, but nothing happened. Though many of us have tirelessly taught on the THIRD DAY for a long time, we find that most believers have been traditionally stuck in DAY TWO - waiting, hoping, and becoming discouraged in standing for an answer not yet received. Stuck as it were, in doing the identical same things the same way day after day. Day TWO has the Rolex, the crowds, and the money…but it brings no RELEASE.
Pressing Further
Through it all, we've preached about the THIRD DAY and determinedly sung about it. We've been looking for it. Believers have been in transition for decades - trying to give birth to this "new thing" (Is. 43:19). We thought that transition would be brief…and that something would happen. But, after so long, even though we fervently preached as we did - there were no great visible changes. Still "yada yada" - the same ol' tired excuses for living the same ol' ways.
Only a few dared to press further - past the place of old wine and men's ideas. Paul said, "The smallness you feel COMES FROM WITHIN YOU. Your lives aren't small, but you're living them in a small way. I'm speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!" (2 Cor. 6:12b-13, MSG). Rosa Parks tired of smallness. One afternoon, she didn't have the strength to walk to the back of the bus. She thought, "Go ahead and shoot me, I don't care." Rosa could not have realized the potential of her simple actions that vaulted against long standing cultural beliefs and released new freedoms. Could we ask, who made up some of the rules that we follow?
Now, it's time for us to be free from our places of spiritual confinement and narrow-mindedness. Restriction kills the dream. Mental boxes limit opportunities. It's time that our past failures cause us to get up one more time. The fact remains that all of creation waits for us - anxious to see the Christ-centered visible manifestation of those who have ACTUALLY shifted into the new spiritual dimension. Those with fire in their bones and who act like Jesus is very much alive and IN them (in every way these words could mean), right now! Vitally, the more excellent ministry (Heb. 8:1-5) BREAKS THROUGH with RELEASE. Living as Overcomers - and having healings happening in their shadows.
We're to be the "Overcomers" (Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 26, 3:5, 12, 21, 21:7), the hidden people in secret places of the stairs (SOS 2:14). As grown up sons of God, we're chosen for this hour and are clothed in the splendor of His might. Now, Zechariah, the priest comes once again to measure the temple (that's us, Rev. 11:1, see Daniel 5:17-31). How wide and far-reaching are we? How much can we contain? Do we hold up the standard?

A Word To the Prophetic Camp - Kent Simpson

Kent Simpson:
A Word To the Prophetic Camp
- The Elijah List

Kent SimpsonFor many years the Church has been asking people, "Do you know who Jesus Christ is?" Today's question, however, is, "Does Jesus Christ know who you are?"

Through two wonderful gifts of the Holy Spirit, prophecy and the word of knowledge, we have discovered that when you receive a prophetic word and it is straight from the throne of God, you are launched into a euphoric experience. 

Having the knowledge that God knows who you are is like having your name called from Heaven, revealing to everyone that your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

The gift of prophecy creates a pathway, imparting purpose into your life. 

Knowing even a small part of your destiny for this life can make a huge difference. With all the struggles that you are going through, receiving a word of knowledge from our Father that tells you He knows what is happening in your life today or reveals something He fixed in your past increases the measure of your faith. Does it not? It builds power within you to hear that He is on your side.

You can rest assured in the fact that you can handle all things when you know God has your back.

I believe this is why Apostle Paul encouraged the Body of Christ to seek spiritual gifts, and why he specifically requested that in our search we ask for the gift of prophecyFor God's prophetic words build, comfort, and exhort the Body of Christ into a unified force of faith that effectively changes the world.

Prophecy is a spiritual gift from the Holy Spirit. This gift is the foretelling of things to come. Many who have the gift of prophecy are also found to have an accompanying spiritual gift: the word of knowledge. The word of knowledge gives the spiritual ability of knowing in part about a person's life, whether the word speaks to their past or present situation.

What Is the Problem With My Prophetic Word?

Three moves of GodThe two gifts working in unison are very powerful. However, there are a couple of things I would like to point out about these two gifts. The word of knowledge has much more of a shock-and-awe effect than the gift of prophecy. The gift of prophecy reveals things that are to happen somewhere in their future. 

Most people will go through many tests and changes, a pruning process, before their prophecy comes to pass. 

This is what we call the process. Most people wish to avoid this part and go straight to the promise that is declared in the prophecy.

The vast majority of the test takes place within one's soul. The mind, however, poses the big question: Is this prophecy even from God, and if so, when will it come to pass? 

The recipient of the prophecy must wait sometimes years before the prophecy comes to pass. They must have patience in order to know whether or not the word was truly from God. Sometimes it takes so long for the word to come to pass they forget ever receiving their prophecy until years after it has come to pass, and then it hits them like a bolt of lightning.

On the other hand, when a word of knowledge is given, its impact is immediate and the person knows without a doubt the word is from God because it has already happened in their life, which makes the reality of the gift unquestionable.

What Makes a Prophecy Appear To Be Hit and Miss?

Here are some other reasons people become confused after they have received a prophetic word. When the message is delivered, it may start with a word of knowledge, then go into prophecy, foretelling of things to come, and later shift back to a word of knowledge, speaking about something that has already happened in their life. This can become confusing to the person receiving the prophetic word.

There have been times when I mailed out a prophetic word and the person called and told me later that I was right in a few places but the other parts of their word did not fit them. After listening to their prophecy, I discovered that the parts they said were correct were words of knowledge. The ones they said I missed were prophecy. Well, of course the prophecy has not manifested in their life, for they just received the prophecy a few days before calling me. How would the word have time to come to pass?

These two gifts listed in 1 Corinthians, chapter 12, are found to be in operation throughout the Holy Bible. We also find in the Scriptures a guide for those who are delivering a prophetic word. This same Scripture is used in the Body of Christ today; its purpose is to keep those ministering in the gift of prophecy or the word of knowledge from hurting people by delivering cruel and punishing words. 

If this Scripture is not enforced, people can use their own words as weapons rather than using the true spiritual gift to express our heavenly Father's love.

But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 1 Corinthians 14:3

Can It Be Different When a Prophet Prophesies?

The same verse, however, does NOT apply to all who prophesy. For those who walk in the office of an apostle or prophet, you will discover that this verse does not always fit when a prophet is ministering in the word of knowledge or in the gift of prophecy.

ElijahList Prophetic Resources

A prophet also has the gift of prophecy and operates in the word of knowledge; however, there are times the prophetic word is for correction and confirms that God knows what you have been doing in secret. Scripture tells us that what is done in darkness shall be brought into the light, and that which is done in secret shall be shouted from the rooftops (Matthew 10:27, Mark 4:22).

It is the prophet's place to speak when God calls upon him or her to minister in a prophetic word of correction. If the prophetic word is received, the rebuke can bring comfort, exhortation, or edification.

In fact, the very writer of the letter to the Church at Corinth was Apostle Paul, who gave this verse I am using as the focus of this teaching, proving there is a difference between those who operate in the gift of prophecy and those who walk in the office of an apostle or prophet.

We see in the Book of Acts that it was common to find apostles and prophets traveling together. The apostle Paul and the prophet Silas were a traveling pair; as was Barnabas, an apostle, and Judas, a prophet, who traveled as a ministry team.

In one of the recorded accounts from the Book of Acts, Paul and possibly Silas came upon a false prophet named Elymas, a sorcerer who had been harassing and hindering them from preaching the Gospel. Paul turned and prophesied blindness to come upon the man. The Scripture proves that there is a difference in the instruction Apostle Paul gave to the Church at Corinth and how he operated in this instance. 

Why? Because there is definite distinction between walking in the ascension gift ministries as an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher, according to Ephesians 4:11 and those who operate in spiritual gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12.

Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, "O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time."

And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord. Acts 13:9-12

Surprisingly, this is not the only account where the Holy Spirit has revealed, according to the Holy Scriptures, what power is given to the prophets. We also see that in the days of tribulation the Holy Spirit will give power to the prophets to call down plagues and pestilence equal to the days Moses and Aaron as they stood before Pharaoh demanding that he let the people of God go free.

But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets. Revelation 10:7

And he said to me, "You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings." Revelation 10:11

These have power to shut Heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire. Revelation 11:6
God Would Never Give a Prophetic Curse, Right?

I know that it is not popular to reveal the complete truth from what is recorded in the Holy Scriptures. However, if you are like me, you only want the truth. 

The truth forces us to listen for God's word. This is why we must know exactly how to pray, hear, and obey. It is paramount we obey Him, for to do otherwise would be far too costly.

My calling came as God spoke to me from Ezekiel 33 on the 14th day of March, 1979, and it is part of my calling to share and teach on the prophetic gifts and functions, even to those who operate in the duties of a prophet, who stand in the office of a prophet. I pray we all be open to hear God's message. In this day and time we need to shed more light upon the truth, lest we find ourselves out of balance within the prophetic camp.
