Tours to Israel--Fall 2014!
"On Your Walls, O Jerusalem" by Barry and Batya Segal
UNDERSTANDING THE TIMES
Editorial: January 2014
By Melva Lea Beacham
In 2007, the most respected rabbi in Israel’s modern history died, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, at 108 years of age. So venerated was he that over two hundred thousand Jews attended his funeral. In 2005, two years before his death, Rabbi Kaduri told his closest disciples that Messiah had revealed himself to him in a vision, and that he knew his name. He wrote a note with the name inscribed, asking that it be sealed and locked away, not to be opened until one year after his death.
At the prescribed time, the note was opened. According to Rabbi Kaduri, the Messiah’s name was Yehoshuah (Jesus). If that were not enough, Rabbi Kaduri went on to prophesy that Messiah would appear after a particular, famous world leader died. That leader was Ariel Sharon.
January 4, 2006, Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of Israel, was stricken with a massive stroke leaving him in a deep coma. This came five months after he ordered the expulsion of all Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria. Regarded as a great military defender of Israel, he nonetheless divided God’s Land.
It is now January 2014, eight years later. The Israeli media is reporting that Sharon’s vital organs are shutting down, and his sons have been told that death is imminent.
Eight is the number of new beginnings. God is about to do a new thing in the earth, one that will astound believers and non-believers alike.
He is also speaking to us from the heavens through signs in the sky. Blood red moons are forecast for Passover and Succot in 2014 and 2015. Known as a tetrad (4), these have only occurred 3 times in the last 500 years, always around historical events involving the Jewish people. The first occurred shortly after the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492 (1493-94); the second, following the formation of Israel as a nation in 1948 (1949-1950); and the third, at the retaking of Jerusalem by Israel in 1967 (1967-68).
According to NASA, no more tetrads will occur this century.
What do these latest signs portend? In times past, they have signified times of great suffering—but ultimate victory—for the Jewish people.
Are they warnings of war, division of the Land, a false peace treaty, the arising of AntiChrist, or the return of the Lord? We do not know specifically; but one thing they do signify is that Israel must not trust in her own strength, but turn to the God of Heaven’s Armies. It is time for the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts (Jesus) to be revealed to the Jewish people.
Above all, these signs are shouting, “It’s time for the Jewish harvest! It’s time for an outpouring of anointing and revelation that will break the yoke of blindness and unbelief currently on God’s chosen people! It’s time for Jesus to be revealed to His brethren!”
Melva Lea Ministries is determined to expand our prayer efforts this year for the Jewish harvest. We are initiating a weekly prayer alert, praying in agreement with our Messianic brothers and sisters in Israel; Jewish and gentile believers standing together in concerted, united prayer before the throne of God on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people.
We have named this part of the ministry, Echad Prayer Team. Echad is the Hebrew word for one, or unity. It is the word used to describe the Godhead. It was what Jesus prayed in John 17, that we, Jewish and gentile believers, would be one, even as He and the Father are one.
Paul later elaborated with the revelation of the “one new man;” Jewish and gentile believers being one in Jesus; the wall of enmity between the two groups having been broken down through His sacrifice. (Eph. 2:13-22)
The formation of Echad Prayer Team is Melva Lea Ministries’ response to this revelation and the biblical mandate to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
We invite you to join us. If you would like to become a member of Echad Prayer Team, and receive the prayer guide by email before the beginning of Shabbat each week, please click here.
