Shalom friends,

As we race towards the beginning of a new year, the world is racing towards its final destiny with God – and for most of humanity, that will not end well (Rev. 19:11-21). As for the Church, despite what Dominion Theology says, it will not conquer the world for Messiah Yeshua but will need to endure until the King of Israel returns to extend God’s sovereignty over the earth (Rev. 6:9-11; Zech. 14:9, 16).

For those who trust in the Lord Yeshua, we must keep our eyes on Him (Heb. 12:2) and recognize that so much of what is happening today has been prophesied to take place in the days leading up to His return (Isa. 55:11; Jer. 1:12; Luke 24:44). As I often write in Intercessors for Israel’s Friday Prayer Alerts, nothing takes God by surprise and there are no emergencies in heaven (Isa. 42:9; 46:9-10; John 13:19).

If God is truly sovereign and the Lord Yeshua already has all authority in heaven and on earth, then why be anxious (Psa. 103:19; Isa. 52:7; Matt. 28:18; Acts 10:36)? And yes, I ask myself this all the time. On the other hand, if He is not sovereign and Messiah does not hold the reins of this age – then all the panic in the world will not make a bit of difference.

The next section shows us that while we usually know only what the mainstream media deems is important, yet God is openly restoring Israel – and He is reaping a final harvest of millions today. Yet God’s Spirit has been moving on the earth ever since the Jews started to return to their land in large numbers in the late 1800s – and it is still ongoing! But because this is no longer happening in the West, most Western Christians are still waiting for it. So be encouraged and look up. Our redemption is definitely drawing near.
