We have a new government in Israel. This is a major political change; perhaps the largest since the 1970’s. In the Bible, change in the Israelite government was often accompanied by a change in the message of the prophets.
For instance, it seems that Isaiah chapters 1 through 5 occurred during the reign of Uzziah; chapter 6 during the reign of Yotam; chapters 7 – 14 during the reign of Ahaz; and from 15 on during Hezekiah. [Note reference in Isaiah 1:1; 6:1; 14:28; 36:1]
Each time there was a change of government, there was also a change in the spiritual realm. Even so we are in a new era of the kingdom. There are new spiritual challenges and new spiritual opportunities. In the world there will be more and more tribulation, but we are to be encouraged, for Yeshua has overcome the world (John 16:33).
The word “Hebrew”, ivri עברי means to cross over. Like Abraham, we need to cross over into this new period. Like the children of Israel crossing the Red Sea, we can’t look back and we can’t complain. We have to concentrate on the promised land and not on the dryness of the wilderness.
When God opens a door for you, run to it and run through it. Forget what lies behind and run forward and upward toward the higher call that God has for you in Yeshua (Philippians 3:3-14).
I have recorded for you a series of short videos describing my impressions about how to pray for Israel in this coming age.
