Bad News – Good News… Hoshanna!

The crowds that went before Him and that followed Him were shouting ‘Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! – Matthew 21:9

As I began to pray and seek the LORD for this week’s comment, I heard just one word – Hosanna. The word Hosanna is mostly used in the Body of Messiah in association with praise, however the correct meaning of the original Hebrew word Hoshanna is ‘Save Us LORD.’ The way our World is heading this is the most relevant word we should be crying out to LORD, in desperation to see a dramatic turn around in the moral and spiritual decline of our nations, Israel included. In almost every area of life we need to be crying out in prayer to the GOD of Israel … HOSHANNA – Save us LORD.

Hosanna – Save us LORD from the influence of the lies and deception of the evil one  (Matt 24:24, 1 John 5:19, 2 Cor 4:4)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the one who has come to lie, steal and destroy  (John 10:10)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the deception of false religions, cults and unbiblical philosophies (2 Tim 4:4)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the deception and wickedness of our own human hearts  (Jeremiah 17:9)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the inclination to serve and worship other gods and idols  (Exodus 20:3)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the pride and lust of the flesh  (1 John 2:16)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the moral and spiritual attack against our youth / children / grandchildren (Isaiah 49:25)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the corruption and self concern of our political leaders ( 2 Thess 3:12)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the corruption and greed of the corporate giants (Prov 15:27)
Hosanna – Save us LORD from the physical harm being caused to our bodies by the large food and pharmaceutical companies  (2 Cor 3:16)

Of course there are many other things that people are trapped in and need to be saved from. That is the bad news … now for the Good News. YHVH – the GOD of Israel has already made a way for every one of His children, from every tribe and every tongue, to be saved from this present evil age, and to be grafted, or in the case of Jewish people, to be re-engrafted into His Kingdom forever and ever. YHVH has manifested Himself physically in the person of His Son Yeshua (Salvation), who was born of a virgin, lived according to the Torah, was crucified and rose again on the 3rd day, to be our Messiah, Saviour and Redeemer, if we make Him our Lord.

Even better news is that Yeshua will soon return to the Earth, as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, to re-establish the Kingdom of YHVH, ruling the nations from the Throne of David, located in the  place where the Holy of Holies was located, in a new Beit ha Miqdash (Holy House) or Temple in our language. The only place this can be is on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the undivided capital city of Israel, which will one day soon, become the capital of the worldwide Kingdom of GOD – Hallelu YAH !!!

Back to the bad news ….. the enemy of the Kingdom has known this for millennia and has tried many times over the years to destroy Israel and the Jewish people, which if that every happened, would prevent the even better news above from being fulfilled. The god of this world is still trying to destroy Israel and in his desperation is influencing most politicians and the secular media to carry out his final attempt to get rid of Israel and the Jewish people, to maintain his place as the god of this world. This is why most of your leaders want to redivide Jerusalem and create another state where the Kingdom must be located.

To end this comment some more good news  …..  its You! You have come to the Kingdom at such a time a this to stand with and pray for Israel and the Jewish people. As a Born-again son or daughter of GOD, you are called and destined to hasten the day of the Lord’s return (2 Peter 3:12). How do we fulfil that?  –  I am glad you asked. Here are my Bible based suggestions  …..

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (Psalm122:6) – We need to pray angelic protection over Jerusalem and all of Israel.
Pray for and assist the Jewish people to return to the Promised Land  (Isaiah 49:22, Jeremiah 16:14-16, (Ezekiel 38:8 – 10, Ezekiel 39:28-20).
Pray for the salvation of all the Jews (Romans 11:26 – 27, Hosea 3:5, Jeremiah 30:9).
Pray for the 144,000 Messianic apostolic Jewish evangelists to be raised up (Revelation 14:1-3).
Pray for your family, friends, neighbors, people you work with and people you meet to have their eyes opened and that they will come into the Kingdom before it is too late.

The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on all of the land given to the right Jewish people by the GOD of Israel. Please pray that all of the Jewish people will turn back to their GOD.  Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Let’s also pray for a breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.  And let’s begin to pray for Jews and Christians to be given full access to the Temple Mount.
