Here we go...a report today on Yahoo and Sky and Euronews.

A toddler has been killed and his two brothers wounded in the latest Israeli airstrike on Gaza, emergency services said.

The 18-month-old Palestinian boy died in a strike east of the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza, spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya told the AFP news agency.

Health ministry spokesman Ashraf al Qudra said the two wounded boys, aged four and five, were "in critical condition".

The bombardment of Gaza by Israel entered a new phase overnight, with Israel shelling the Palestinian territory from the sea, as well as continuing its airstrikes.

The latest bombings come as Egypt's President suggested that there could be a ceasefire soon - and a Palestinian official said this morning that a truce is possible "today or tomorrow".

Mr Morsi said: "There are now intensive efforts through communication channels with the Palestinian side and with the Israeli side and there are now some indications that there is possibility of a ceasefire soon between the two sides."

Forty-eight Palestinians, about half of them civilians, including 13 children, have now been killed in Israel's raids, Palestinian officials said.

Militants in Gaza resumed firing rockets into Israel this morning, with at least one landing in Ashkelon in southern Israel.

More than 500 rockets fired from Gaza have hit Israel since the recent violence flared on Wednesday, killing three people and injuring dozens.

Two buildings housing local Arab media in Gaza were among the targets in the latest airstrikes.

Among the buildings hit was a media centre housing the offices of al Quds TV, often a voicepiece for Hamas. Three journalists were wounded.

Both buildings also contained offices used by foreign journalists, including Sky News.

"I think that this demonstrates just how dangerous and complex with aerial bombardment is," said Sky's Sam Kiley.

Two other pre-dawn attacks on houses in the Jebalya refugee camp killed one child and wounded 12 other people, medical officials said. These attacks followed a defiant statement by Hamas military spokesman Abu Ubaida.

"This round of confrontation will not be the last against the Zionist enemy and it is only the beginning."

The masked gunman dressed in military fatigues insisted that despite Israel's blows Hamas "is still strong enough to destroy the enemy".

On Saturday Israeli aircraft bombed Hamas government buildings in Gaza, including the offices of Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and a police headquarters.

Israel has said it will keep schools in its southern region closed as a precaution to avoid casualties from rocket strikes, which have reached as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in the past few days.

Israel unleashed its massive air campaign on Wednesday, killing a leading militant of the Hamas Islamist group that controls Gaza and rejects Israel's existence.

Israel says it is trying to stop militants in the coastal enclave from launching rockets that have plagued its southern communities for years.

The Jewish state has since launched more than 950 air strikes since Wednesday.


This Shabbat's prophetic portion (haftarah) speaks into a similar situation to the one we face now with Gaza. We [the intercessors]read from that and then praised God because of who He is - regardless of the events of the day.

The burden of the Word of YHWH to Israel by Malachi. I have loved you, says YHWH. But you say, How have You loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? Says YHWH; yet I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau and made his mountains a desolation, and his inheritance to be for the jackals of the wilderness. Edom says, we are beaten down, but we will return and build the waste places. Yet YHWH of Hosts declares, they shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them the border of wickedness, the people with whom YHWH is indignant forever. And your eyes shall see, and you shall say, YHWH will be magnified from [and/or beyond] the border of Israel.

Malachi 1:1-5

We thank and praise YOU for being ever faithful to watch over YOUR word to do it (Jeremiah 1:12).

We take comfort in the fact that YOU are all-knowing and that there are never any crises in heaven.

Not to us, YHWH, not to us, but to YOUR name give glory, for Your mercy and for Your truth's sake. Why should the nations say, Where now is their God? But our God is in Heaven; He has done whatever He has pleased.

Psalms 115:1-3

The IDF's Operation Pillar of Cloud [the name is taken from Exodus 13:21-22], is a response to a huge numbers of various attacks from Islamic terror groups in Gaza. The operation started four days ago with the targeted assassination of Hamas' military leader who had much blood on his hands. It has continued with Israeli Air Force and Navy strikes. Hamas and other terrorist groups have responded by the firing of hundreds of rockets against the citizens of southern Israel. A few missiles landed very close to Tel Aviv, and one even hit the surroundings of Jerusalem last night. Israel could be sending in ground troops by the time you read this and that will make this operation very messy and more deadly - to both sides. In line with 1 Timothy 2:1-2, we prayed first for those in authority in the government.

Lord, we lift up the arms of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak.

Help them walk in one accord and receive wisdom from YOU concerning what Israel needs to do.

Bring government leaders into a unity in purpose and a desire to protect the Israeli people.

May You be glorified in all that goes on by having Your will done on earth as it is already settled in heaven (Matthew 6:9-10).

Lord, forbid the upcoming Israeli elections to intervene with Israel's leaders' decisions concerning how to run this operation.

Abba, YOU have raised up Netanyahu for just a time like this. Therefore, make him a statesman and do not allow political gain or lose impact his decisions.

Reveal to Israeli leaders YOUR goals for this time and YOUR plans on how to accomplish them.

A man's heart plans his way, but YHWH directs his steps.

Proverbs 16:9

There are many thoughts in a man's heart, but the counsel of YHWH shall stand.

Proverbs 19:21

Enable clear communication between Israel's governmental leaders and the leaders of its army.

Dampen all contradictory voices that would seek to take personal/political advantage of this operation - especially in the Israeli media and in the political opposition.

We then prayed for the leadership of the Israeli Defence Forces, the IDF, to receive the mantle from on high to lead the army in this time of crisis.

Abba, we do not trust in the Israeli IDF - but in the heavenly IDF - Israel's Divine Father!

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of YHWH our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save, O YHWH; let the King hear us when we call.

Psalms 20:7-9

Hear the Word of YHWH, nations, and declare it in the coastlands afar off, and say, He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep [guard] him, as a shepherd keeps his flock.

Jeremiah 31:10

Yeshua, Lord of the hosts of heaven, give the IDF leaders unity of purpose and courage.

Enable them to quickly adapt to changing scenarios on the battlefield.

Impart YOUR plans that will stand in the face of chaotic battle situations.

Rise up the wise advisors and remove all false or deceived ones from the ranks of the IDF leadership.

Purposes are established by counsel; and with good advice make war.

Proverbs 20:18; cp. 24:6

Like YOU gave to King David, give current IDF leaders an ability to hear and respond to Your specific directions (1 Chronicles 14:14-15).

We next prayed for the courage, protection and skills of the rest of the IDF.

Be strong and of a good courage. Do not fear nor be afraid of them. For YHWH your God is He who goes with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:6

We ask for YOUR covering to be on all of Israel's soldiers, sailors, pilots and spies.

Use them all to deal a debilitating blow to the terror organizations that thrive in Gaza.

They have prepared a net for my steps… they have dug a pit before me, into which they have fallen.

Psalms 57:6

Impart courage and wisdom to the mid-to-low level commanders throughout the IDF.

Protect and use the believers in the IDF for Your purposes.

Rise up more Messianic Jews to positions of influence.

Lord, Hamas said this past week that by assassinating their top military leader, Israel opened up the gates of hell. We say that the gates of hell will not prevail against Your Church (Matthew 16:18) - and since we are a growing remnant in Israel, those gates will not prevail against YOUR nation either.

We turned our focus in prayer to the people of Israel. The situation for the citizens in the south has been hellacious for many years now. Although there are very few deaths from the terrorist rocket fire, yet there are many injuries to one's emotional, mental and physical person. Some of these might never be healed and will impact negatively many of these Israelis and a whole future generation that has been traumatized for a decade.

Throughout Your Word, You say to the children of Israel, Fear not! Speak that to YOUR people in the night seasons, during the missile attacks, and many times during the day.

Father of all comfort; give YOUR divine comfort and courage to the children and teens.

Comfort all who have already lost loved ones and/or who are suffering from the terror they have had to endure during all these years.

We bless and thank YOU that the majority of this nation is standing in one accord with the government and this IDF operation. Continue to keep this nation unified.

Abba, use these times of tension and fear to draw many to Your Son Yeshua (John 6:44)

Anoint leaders of synagogues and messianic congregations to know what to say and what not to say.

Give Rabbis an ability to speak truth and turn their flocks to look to YOU.

Wake up the liberal left-wing to the reality of what Israel faces and confront them to take responsibility for this situation because of their support for the Gaza disengagement.

Protect supernaturally all of the communities bordering on Gaza.

We confessed, No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness is from ME, says YHWH. (Isaiah 54:17)

The two areas in which Israel seems to always lose the battle is in diplomacy and public relations. There are so many lies in the media, in governments and in the spirit realm, about Israel and her reasons for battling Hamas, or restricting what goes into Gaza, that it will take a miracle for most of the world's population to see this current operation as anything more than further Israeli aggression. Yet we believe in miracles.

Ah, Lord YHWH! You have made the heavens and the earth by YOUR great power and stretched out arm. Nothing is too great for YOU.

Jeremiah 32:17

Behold, I am YHWH, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for ME?

Jeremiah 32:27

Give much wisdom and revelation to those who are leading the fight to explain Israel's situation to the world at large.

Anoint PM Netanyahu and Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein to take advantage of all media interviews to speak the truth boldly.

Use Israel's ambassadors in the nations and to the UN to state the facts clearly and openly - without the fear of man infecting them in any way (Proverbs 29:25a).

Enable Israel's use of social media to reach the younger generation - and even many in the Arab and Muslim worlds.

We thank YOU that up to this point, the US and Canada are standing behind the IDF operation (in fact, even the British foreign minister seems to understand!).

Because of the IDF moving many of its troops and equipment south - to the area around Gaza - the northern border might look enticing to Israel's enemies.

Lord, we ask for YOU to protect Israel's northern border.

Do not permit any attacks from either Hezbollah in Lebanon or Assad in Syria - unless it is absolutely YOU drawing them into YOUR trap (Isaiah 37:29)!

Keep the soldiers in the north - many of whom will be reservists - alert and protected.

Forbid any successful kidnapping attempts.

Give the IDF wisdom concerning the deployment of all of its troops.

Let the priests, the ministers of YHWH, weep between the porch and the altar, and pray, Spare YOUR people, O YHWH. Give not YOUR inheritance to reproach… Why should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then YHWH will be jealous for His land and pity His people. Yes, YHWH will answer and say to His people, Behold… I will no more make you a curse among the nations. But I will remove the northern army far from you, and will drive him into a barren and deserted land… Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice. For YHWH will do great things.

Joel 2:17-21

We ended by praying for the Israeli Messianic Body, and the worldwide Body of Messiah.

Yeshua, pour out YOUR burden on Your Body for this weekend.

Anoint Arab believers to know how to pray at this time.

Help us all too always and only pray in line with YOUR will.

Therefore let us not sleep as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober-minded.

1 Thessalonians 5:6

But the end of all things has drawn near. Therefore be sober-minded, watch and pray.

1 Peter 4:7

Blessings, peace and Shabbat shalom from Zion

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on YOU; because he trusts in YOU. Trust in YHWH forever; for in the Yah YHWH is everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3-4


My position on this is that I do not believe that WAR ever solves anything…in fact it just hardens the enemy against the other side.

In this case I know that Israel is a special land to our Lord Yahweh and that the descendants of Abraham…Israelites have the right to the land and they should be allowed to live in peace. In fact they have Arabs living in their Nation and treat them better than they would be treated in Arab lands. The Western Media fuel this hatred as it suits their agenda of anti- Semitism.

So I pray for BLESSINGS & PEACE upon Jerusalem

The Presidental Showtime is over, so will things get better?
The same President has been voted back in office, so what is he going to do in the wake of the terrible events occurring to this Nation?

Obviously no one likes to see terrible disasters hitting Nations and the misery it causes for Millions of people. Our thoughts certainly go out to people caught up in these nasty events. However this question needs to be asked.

The Sandy 'Super-storm' was the worst ever recorded on the East Coast and the financial centre of the USA - was just one in a long line of "historic" catastrophes to hit the United States in the last 11 years. It follows right on the heels of one of the worst droughts ever recorded in America which occurred this summer - the most severe in more than half a century.

Quite a number of Christians are now asking whether the Lord has lifted His hand of protection off the USA and especially since September 9th 2011. Below is an astonishing list of major disasters that have occurred one after the other in America since that awful event in 2001….

2001 - TWIN TOWERS - The worst ever attack on American soil. The most shocking and devastating event in US living memory

2005 - HURRICANE KATRINA - The most destructive and expensive hurricane in US history.

2007 - MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH - The worst school shooting in the history of the United States.

2007 - HOUSING CRISIS - Start of the worst (by far) housing crash in US history. Millions lose their homes across the nation.

2008 - FINANCIAL PANIC - The beginning of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. (still on-going).

2011 - TORNADO OUTBREAK - The largest outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded (Also the costliest and most devastating).

2012 - DROUGHT - The worst and most extensive US drought in more than half a century.

2012 - SUPER-STORM - A 1000-mile-wide hurricane that slams into New York and the East Coast harder than any ever recorded.

QUESTION - Is God allowing this terrible shaking in order to wake the nation from its deadly spiritual slumber? There was a time when America spread righteousness in the earth. But today the USA is the # 1 exporter of pornography and youth rebellion and homosexuality to the whole world. Does this have anything to do with what is happening? She has exported Coca Cola, McDonalds, Burger King and many other fast food operations that many of us would label Junk Food and along with that has been the Junk life style as well.

America is the ‘leader’ in so many things. Are there other reasons why she might be under judgment? (It is not that the USA is ‘worse’ than many other nations - but rather that she is a 'leader' in World events and influencing the whole earth with these things. It is this place of "leadership" that makes America a unique case).

Despite all the prayers from well-meaning religious groups, the US continues its slide into even more God dis-honouring practices and moral breakdown.

Great Empires of the past gradually fell apart because of similar lifestyles and ignoring of the ONLY TRUE GOD.

The Country will not improve until it REPENTS for what it has done to its own people and the World it influences. OUR LORD GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED

Keep praying that the Lord will give the commanding call soon.

Bless you

Many Churches, Charismatic, Pentecostal, Evangelical and ‘Free Churches’ have been trying to bring about a ONE WORLD CHURCH that accepts and respects each other .

This sentiment sounds very good, so what does this involve in reality?

Here is a brief summary of what Ecumenicalism (joining together) really is.


“The general understanding of the ecumenical movement is that it came from the Roman Catholic Church's attempts to reconcile with Christians who had become separated over theological issues. After World War 1 the Roman Catholic Church was not the only church which began to make changes within their denomination. The world war had brought much devastation to many people. The church became a source of hope to those in need. In 1948 the first meeting of the World Council of Churches took place. Despite the fact that the meeting had been postponed due to World War 2, the council took place in Amsterdam with the theme of “Man’s Disorder and God’s Design”. The focus of the church and the council following the gathering was on the damage created by the 2nd World War. The council and the movement went forward to continue the efforts of uniting the church globally around the idea of helping all those in need whether it be a physical, emotional, or spiritual need. The movement led to an understanding amongst the churches that despite difference they could join together to be an element of great change in the world. To be an agent of hope and peace amongst the chaos and destruction that humans seem to create. More importantly the council and the movement lead to not only ecumenism but to the forming of councils amongst the denominations that connected churches across continental lines”.

Therefore the Roman Church and others have been trying to foster ‘harmony out of chaos’ so that they can ‘bring the heretics back into the fold’ of the one and only Mother Church.

So how did the Roman Catholic Church get its start?

The Roman Catholic Church claims to have started in Matthew 16:18 when Christ supposedly appointed Peter as the first Pope. However, the honest and objective student of the Scriptures and history soon discovers that the foundation of the Roman church is none other than a ‘Christianisation of the pagan religions of Rome’ and is referred to in the book of Revelation as the mystery religion of ancient Babylon.

While enduring the early persecutions of the Roman government (65-300 A.D.), most of professing Christianity went through a gradual departure from New Testament doctrine concerning church government, worship and practice. Local churches ceased to be autonomous by giving way to the control of "bishops" ruling over hierarchies. The simple form of worship from the heart was replaced with the rituals and splendour of paganism. Ministers became "priests," and pagans became "Christians" by simply being sprinkled with water. This tolerance of an unregenerate membership only made things worse.

The Roman Emperor Constantine established himself as the head of the church ‘Pontifex Maximus’ around 313 A.D., which made this new "Christianity" the official religion of the Roman Empire. The first actual Pope in Rome was most probably Leo I (440-461 A.D.), although some claim that Gregory I was the first (590-604 A.D.). This ungodly system eventually ushered in the darkest satanic BLOOD SPILLING period of history known to man, known as the "Dark Ages" (500-1500 A.D.). Through popes, bishops, and priests, Satan ruled Europe and Biblical Christianity became illegal. Faithful men of God who tried to translate the Bible into the language of the people were brutally tortured and killed. This new satanic religion killed Jews (Christ’s brothers) and waged war on any Nation or group who opposed their wicked apostate religion.

Throughout all of this, however, there remained individual groups of true Christians, such as the Waldensens and the Anabaptists who would not conform to the Roman system.

The Papacy and Priesthood

In the Bible there are no popes or priests to rule over the church. Jesus Christ is our High Priest (Heb. 3:1; 4:14-15; 5:5; 8:1; 9:11), and all true Christians make up a spiritual priesthood (I Pet. 2:5). Jesus Christ has sanctified all Christians who believe on Him (Heb. 10:10-11), so all priests today are unnecessary and unscriptural. Furthermore, the practice of calling a priest "father" is forbidden by Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:9. There is only ONE mediator between God and men (I Tim. 2:5).

The Catholic Church teaches that Peter was the first Pope and the earthly head of the church, but the Bible never says this once. In fact, it was Peter himself who spoke against "being lords over God's heritage" in I Peter 5:3. Popes do not marry, although Peter did (Mat. 8:14; I Cor. 9:5). The Bible never speaks of Peter being in Rome, and it was Paul, not Peter, who wrote the epistle to the Romans. In the New Testament, Paul wrote 100 chapters with 2,325 verses, while Peter wrote only 8 chapters with 166 verses. In Peter's first epistle he stated that he was simply "an apostle of Jesus Christ," not a Pope (I Pet. 1:1). The Roman papacy and priesthood is just a huge deception to keep members in bondage to a corrupt pagan church.

The Worship of Mary

Roman Catholics believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, remained a virgin after the birth of Jesus and was sinless all of her life. She is worshiped in the Catholic Church as the "Mother of God" and the "Queen of Heaven." St. Bernard stated that she was crowned "Queen of Heaven" by God the Father, and that she currently sits upon a throne in Heaven making intercession for Christians.

The Bible teaches otherwise. In the Bible, Mary was a sinner just like the rest of us. She said herself that she needed a "Saviour" (Luke 1:47), and she even had to offer a sacrifice for her sins in Luke 2:24. Jesus was only her "firstborn" son, according to Matthew 1:25, because she later had other children as well (Mt. 13:55; Gal. 1:19; Psa. 69:8). There's only ONE mediator between God and men, and it isn't Mary (I Tim. 2:5). The last time we hear from Mary in the Bible she is praying WITH the disciples, not being prayed to BY the disciples (Acts 1:14). The Bible never exalts Mary above anyone else. Neither should we. The Catholic Church even claims that Mary is the Co Redemptrix along with Our Lord Jesus himself…what blasphemy.

The Roman Church has changed its tactics over the Centuries and now uses subversion and infiltrators to undermine any Bible believing Church or Group.

The people mainly used for this evil tactic is the Jesuits….here is a statement of what this group are really intent on doing within various Churches.

Instructions from Jesuit Superiors to the Initiates

"My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.

You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed, to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means.

You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto death.

You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for "without the shedding of blood no man can be saved." Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me---” END OF STATEMENT

The amazing thing about this statement is that the LORD JESUS CHRIST or the BIBLE is not mentioned ONCE….only verses taken out of context to try and validate their evil schemes. ALL authority and praise is given to the Pope.

What ‘LOVING’ people these are…certainly the SEED of Satan himself. They will stop at nothing to KILL and stop the work of the only TRUTH and that is Jesus Christ and him alone.

So be very careful about Ecumenicalism in any shape or form

Blessings in the Mighty Name of Yeshua
