“Do not weep!
See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed”
(Revelation 5:5 NIV)
ISRAEL HURLING TOWARDS UNPRECEDENTED THIRD VOTE
Last week, Israel’s President, Reuven Rivlin, lamented that the days ahead for Israel will be a “troubled time.”
Amidst the constant threat of Iran encroaching on her borders, as well as other radicalized Islamic terror organizations, Israel remains in a political deadlock.
Unity continues to remain out of reach. Compromise doesn’t appear to truly be an option for anyone.
Neither Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor his opponent Benny Gantz has been able to form a government. Neither has been able to solidify Israel’s future.
Even though both have publicly said they want to avoid a third vote.
MARCH 2 IS THE AGREED-UPON DATE FOR ISRAEL’S THIRD ROUND OF ELECTIONS IF NO COALITION IS FORMED
The mandate to form a government was then given to the 120-member Knesset.
According to reports we’ve received, if no lawmaker manages to get the support of at least 61 members of the Knesset by December 11, elections will be called for the third time in less than a year. If those third elections are called, the date for them to be held would be March 2, 2020.
In the background, the Prime Minister has attempted to spark negotiations with Gantz and the Blue and White party. But all attempts have been quickly shut down. According to officials in Israel, the Blue and White party refuse to form any kind of unity government – with shared power.
The Prime Minister has agreed to Likud primaries if a new election is called. This could see Netanyahu replaced as the head of Likud after more than a decade in power.
AND THE THREAT AGAINST ISRAEL REMAINS FROM IRAN
As I’m sure you can imagine, the Jewish people in Israel are certain to feel a sense of frustration. There’s talk of boycotting this third round of elections because the outcome will be no different from what they’ve experienced since April.
And all the while, Israel has been fighting on two fronts against Iran – on the Syrian border and Gaza – which continues to vow to wipe the Jewish State off the map.
Regardless of political stalemate, Israel has no other options but to defend herself. Especially now as Iran’s brazenness continues to increase.
That’s why we need to remain standing in support of Israel and the Jewish people through our prayers…
WILL YOU PRAY WITH US?
Please join us as we pray for God to:
- Protect Israel and her people amidst the ongoing threat of her surrounding enemies
- Give discernment to Israeli leaders as they seek political unity amidst the prospect of war
- Instill peace and protection to Israel and her people during this time of uncertainty
- Move in the hearts and minds of world leaders, Israel’s enemies and the Jewish people, to help them come to the saving knowledge of their Messiah, Jesus
As a Believer in Jesus, I hope you’ll go beyond prayer and put your support into action by giving a generous gift to stand with the Jewish people – in Israel and around the world.
GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT
Your gift today will be put to work to provide dental and eye care to Holocaust survivors in Israel.
Your generosity will also be used to rush humanitarian aid, clean water and medical care to the “Lost Tribes of Israel” scattered around the world.
WE’D LIKE TO BLESS YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
For your gift of $60 or more, we’d like to bless you with our Lion of Judah Afghan Throw.
This beautifully designed afghan throw features a regal lion’s face, the Star of David and shining rays of light depicting the glory of Yeshua (Jesus), the Lion of Judah.
In the corner are the words of Revelation 5:5: “The Lion of Judah has triumphed.” This reminder is critical, especially now during Israel’s long season of political instability.
The reality is, the government in Israel won’t truly be established until Jesus returns and sits on His throne.
Our Lion of Judah Afghan Throw would be an inspiring addition to your holiday season – and the perfect gift for a friend or loved one!
