Malaysia Flight #17: A Key for Prayer

The History of the City of Donetsk
[Editor's note: this article was written by a member of our Board of Directors, Pastor Eric Teitelman. As the Lord has brought this information to light, we realize that this research goes beyond a discussion of the "cause" of the crash of Malaysia Flight #17. Rather, this documentation speaks of the brutality of the era of World War I, and hence the need to come before our Lord with acts of repentance, asking Him to "heal our land," and that of Ukraine, too. Amen.]
The town of Donetsk, Ukraine is where the Malaysian plane came down. The whole town now smells of death. There is a curse over this land and it is defiled for the shedding of innocent blood.
The territory of Donetsk at the time of the German occupation consisted mainly of a Jewish ghetto, in which 3,000 Jews died, and a concentration camp in which 92,000 people were killed. During the war, a collective responsibility system was enforced. For every killed German soldier, 100 inhabitants were killed, and one for every killed policeman. (Wikipedia)
In April 1942, the liquidation of the Donetsk ghetto commenced. The Germans took the Jews to the abandoned Maria mine and threw most of them down the shafts alive. They also used gas vans, throwing the bodies into the mine. Some 15,000 Jews were murdered. (Jewish Virtual Library)
As it relates to WWI and our prayer focus:
In 1910, there were three synagogues and five Jewish private schools in the city. Zionism was active and a delegate from Donetsk was sent to the Sixth Zionist Congress. During World War I, many Jewish refugees from the surrounding areas came to Donetsk and were helped by a local Jewish committee. (Jewish Virtual Library)
During the 1917 Russian Revolution and the ensuing Russian Civil War, an estimated 70,000 to 250,000 Jewish civilians were killed in the atrocities throughout the former Russian Empire in this period. In the territories of modern Ukraine an estimated 31,071 were killed during 1918-1920. (Wikipedia)
And more recent history:
In the city of Donetsk, someone distributed fliers ordering Jews to register with the separatists who have taken over government buildings. Even though nobody in Ukraine believed the leaflet was real, the fliers hit a nerve. It all started at a Donetsk synagogue after evening prayers two nights ago, when a group of masked men in camouflage showed up. Everyone says they were very polite as they distributed a stack of leaflets. The fliers said local Jews must come to occupied buildings with a passport, family history, a list of possessions and a $50 registration fee - a huge sum in these parts. According to the leaflet, the penalty for failing to register could be deportation, loss of citizenship and confiscation of assets.

> > > Of course, the spirit of anti-semitism did not begin at Donetsk, but has been in place since perhaps the beginning of time. However, the crash of the aircraft last week, directly on this land, points to a desperate need for an act of cleansing by the Hand of God.
Remembering World War I . . . and the Persecution of the Jews
In the article above, we can clearly see that the city of Donetsk has been a literal "killing field" for the Jews, ever since World War I and beyond.
Time after time, this land has been given over to the shedding of innocent blood, giving ground for the shedding of the innocent blood of 298 civilians last week on a Malaysian commercial flight, on the same land.
How are these two facts related?
They are related because their blood cries out for revenge.
"Therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will give you over to bloodshed and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you." (Ezekiel 35:6)
"The LORD said, 'What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground.'" (Genesis 4:10)
Might there be a way, once and for all, to repent for the sins perpetrated at Donetsk against the Jews, and to ask our Lord to cleanse this land, for His Glory?
And is anti-semitism one of the roots planted in this era, for which repentance can be made?
And as we ponder the time of World War I, one hundred years later, are there other roots of defilement that must be uprooted, through repentance and prayer, so that they no longer bear their wicked fruit?
Does our Messiah point the way, in His Word, to a cleansing move of the Holy Spirit, so that all might be forgiven and a new beginning spring forth?
The answer to these questions is: YES.
A Strategy for Healing
The Crash of Malaysia Flight #17:
A Strategy for Healing
"Even now the ax of God's judgment is poised, ready to sever the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire." (Matthew 3:10)
Knowing that this month marks the Centennial of the outbreak of World War I, for the past several weeks, we have assembled a team of researchers and prayer warriors who have looked deeply into the past to discover and research many key roots of that era -- roots that have plagued the nations ever since they were established.
The sin of anti-semitism (actually in place for centuries) is only one of the sins that festered and "took root" in 1914. There were -- and are -- many others . . .
This Sunday, July 27th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. EDT and continuing for as long as necessary, we will carefully examine each root issue, go to the Lord asking forgiveness for those sins, and praise Him for bringing us to a new beginning in Him.
We will "visit" acts of iniquity committed (or omitted) by our national government, the "global government," and the church.
We invite all of our prayer partners to join us in this nationwide conference call, as follows.
A NATIONAL CONFERENCE CALL
A National Conference Call Exposing the Roots of Our Iniquity during
World War I and Asking our Lord to Forgive our Sin, and to Heal our Land
Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, "Spare your people, LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, 'Where is their God?' (Joel 2:17)
This month marks 100 years since the outbreak of World War I . . . "the war to end all wars." After the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria on June 28, 1914, the nations (failing to seek God and following their own human reasoning) scrambled to respond. One month later, on July 28, 1914, the first shots were fired . . . the result was a brutal war that spanned five years, cost 9 million lives, and became known in time as World War I.
Sadly, this proved not to be "the war to end all wars," but the seeds that were planted in that time instead bore fruit over the next generation, bringing all to the horrors of World War II. And of course, there have now been numerous "wars and rumors of war" among the nations ever since.
Have we learned anything in those one-hundred years -- anything that will help us to serve the Lord and His purposes now, in these end times? Is there a way for us to get back on track with our Lord as a people, so that His destiny for us might yet be fulfilled? Can we, indeed, "come home" to Him?
The answer is: YES - we can come home to Him through acts of repentance.
Over the past few weeks, a team of intercessors has been quietly researching the history of World War I in order to expose the root issues that caused this conflict, as well as the fruit of those roots and for which we must now repent. The enemy's plan is to reinforce and strengthen those roots, but God wants to revisit them in order to break them up. We have a lot of work to do as a nation to reverse the trajectory of our choices. We have brought our current state upon ourselves - just like the European nations did before the outbreak of World War I.
It is time to face the Babylonian world system, to flee from her, to sever the roots of our past, and to embrace our Lord as King over our nation. It is time for a new beginning; it is time to walk in His paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.
It is time.
OUR INVITATION TO YOU
Please join us this Sunday, July 27th (July 28th in Europe), as we seek the Face of God together in repentance. We will uncover and expose sins committed (or omitted) by our own government in 1914, by the governments of the nations, and by the church. We will examine both the root and the fruit of each issue, and together praise Abba for His cleansing work! Intercessors from across the land will participate as a panel on this call; and opportunity will be given for you, too, to raise your voices in agreement with each prayer.
In the end, we will seek our Lord for a vision for the future: a vision in which America can come back to the destiny that God has designed for us to pursue.
HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE
You can join our conference as follows:
Date: Sunday, July 27, 2014
Time: Beginning at 7:00 p.m. EDT [Please adjust to your own time zone]
Conference Number: 559-726-1300
Access Code: 596015#
In order to change the course of our nation, we will need to do the following:
1. Realize the consequences of our rebellion
2. Realize the need for God's mercy and our own repentance
3. Seek the Lord's strategy for redemption and victory over the enemy. Ask for His throne-room perspective (the enemy is already defeated), which will:
4. Bring us back to the fulfillment of God's promises once we are in submission to Him again
By the end of this three-hour conference call, and by the grace of God, all four points will have been addressed as we position ourselves for a new day before Him. Thank You, Lord!
"Come now, let us reason together; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow." (Isaiah 1:18)
