What is the Root of Violence Against Jews in Israel?

Several weeks ago I wrote an update, A Day of Violence in Israel, relating to the current spiral of violence and terrorism against the Jewish people in Israel. Unfortunately there has been no reduction and Palestinian knifings of Israelis, motor vehicle attacks, rock throwing and rioting has been continuing. Jerusalem’s streets are filled with soldiers, many civilians have been called up to active military service to help with Israel’s ongoing defense and new restrictions have been imposed in the West Bank and throughout East Jerusalem in an effort to further reduce the ongoing attacks.

The root of the violence against Jews in Israel and throughout the world has nothing to do with “Palestinian Rights” but is rather based on the ancient desire of the powers of darkness to destroy Israel, make God a liar and ultimately prevent the return of Yeshua. The ease with which so much of the world openly embraces the lie, condemns Israel and sympathizes with the Palestinians is nothing less than a demonic “end time” strategy.

We who live here and know our God are certain that His promises will be fulfilled. Israel will be blessed and will be a blessing to the entire world. All of the satanic strategies and plans for this nation will ultimately fail.

Please pray for wisdom for our government, army and security forces as they endeavor to take control and end this current terrorist uprising. Pray that Israelis would not be overwhelmed by a spirit of fear and intimidation. Pray against the spirit of antisemitism that is so prevalent in today’s world.
