4. Netanyahu said open to drawing up boundaries for settlement blocs
- Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini last week that Israel is prepared to resume negotiations with the Palestinians and to define boundaries for the major settlement blocs in the West Bank, the Haaretz newspaper reported Tuesday, quoting an unnamed source.

In a marked departure from his long-held stance, Netanyahu showed willingness to reach an understanding with the Palestinians that would involve Israeli territorial concessions in the West Bank, the report said.

The understanding would include annexing major West Bank settlement blocs to Israel.

The source noted that Netanyahu is seeking clear boundaries to enable Israel to continue building in the major settlement blocs without incurring the wrath of the international community. (Read more)

5. Netanyahu confidant Dore Gold to head diplomatic corps - Times of Israel

Former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Dore Gold will head up the Foreign Ministry, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Monday shortly after firing director Nissim Ben Shitrit.

Gold, who heads the conservative-leaning Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, is considered to be one of Netanyahu's closest confidants. He has served as an adviser to the prime minister on various issues during Netanyahu's previous three terms in office, including most recently on foreign policy matters. (Read more)

6. Interior Ministry official commits suicide after accusation of racism goes viral - Jerusalem Post

Ariel Ronis, a manager at the Interior Ministry's Population, Immigration and Border Crossing Authority (PIBA), shot himself to death on Saturday evening after a Facebook post accusing him of racism went viral.

On Wednesday an Ethiopian- Israeli woman from Tel Aviv complained in a lengthy social media post about how she was mistreated at the ministry when she was there with her small children. In her message, which has garnered significant media attention and nearly 7,000 shares on Facebook since it was published, the mother of three recounts how she was repeatedly told to go to the end of the line at PIBA, while other mothers were quickly ushered inside via a shorter line designated for parents. (Read more)

- Abba Father God, we are so saddened today to read of this news . . . We ask that You wrap the Ronis family in Your arms, and bring them Your comfort, Lord. Please visit them now, with healing in Your wings. We ask this in Your Name, Yeshua, amen and amen.

- "I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security." (Jeremiah 33:6)

7. Jews, Muslims Arrested in Temple Mount Confrontation - Israel National News

Israeli police said they arrested six Muslims and six Jews on Monday after a confrontation on the Temple Mount, which is a scene of frequent religious tensions. "The Palestinians were arrested while trying to prevent Jews from entering the Temple Mount," police spokeswoman Luba Samri said. The security forces then arrested four Jews who broke a rule forbidding them to pray there, and two other Jews for "causing disturbances," she said.

Despite the fact that the Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism, Jewish visits are strictly regulated and Jews are forbidden from praying there due to threats of violence by Muslim groups. (Read more)

8. Hezbollah seizes hilltops from al-Qaida in Syrian province bordering Israel - Jerusalem Post

BEIRUT - Hezbollah fighters have captured two hilltops from al-Qaida's Syria wing Nusra Front in areas close to the Lebanese border and have killed dozens of enemy combatants, Hezbollah-run al-Manar television reported on Monday.

It said in a newsflash that the Lebanese Shi'ite Muslim group had captured the hilltops of Quba'a and Naqar in Syria's southwestern Quneitra province, which lies in sensitive territory close to Lebanon and Israel. (Read more)

9. ALERT!! Leading Islamic voice calls for reconquering Jerusalem - WND

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on his countrymen to refocus on the Ottoman goal of re-conquering Jerusalem for Islam and uniting Shia and Sunni tribes for that same mission.

In a speech that got almost no coverage in the Western media, Erdogan talked about invading and reconquering Jerusalem, according to an article in the Anadolu Agency of Turkey.

"We Muslims lost our aim to head towards Jerusalem," he told throngs of adoring Turks while in the state of Erzincan in central Turkey, according to a translation by Walid Shoebat. "The water of our eyes froze making us blind, and our hearts that was destined to beat for Jerusalem is now instead conditioned for rivalry being in a state of war with each other."

Erdogan was in the city to promote numerous service projects, but the speech focused on Jerusalem. (Read more)

The Daily Brief

1. Authorities say 12 missing in Texas floods likely dead, 14 killed in Mexico tornado - Fox News

Recovery teams were resuming the search early Tuesday for 12 people who are missing after a rain-swollen river in Central Texas carried a vacation home off its foundation, slamming it into a bridge downstream.

The fate of those who were inside the home was still unclear. Recovery teams were to resume looking for as many as a dozen people who may have been staying at the two-story house in this small town in the Texas Hill Country, where punishing rains and other severe weather have destroyed or damaged more than 1,000 homes.

Storms dumped record rainfall on the Plains and Midwest, caused major flooding and spawned tornadoes and killed at least 11 in Oklahoma and Texas. (Read more)

- Father God, we ask that You would extend Your hand of mercy and cause the rain to cease in those areas where life and property has been lost and send it to those regions where it is needed. We cry out for immediate provision for those who are displaced and who have lost their homes. Please heal those who have been traumatized by this flooding and restore what has been lost. Minister Your love to those who have lost loved ones. We ask this in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

(Written by a prayer editor who lives in an impacted area.)

- "Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof, for it shaketh." (Psalms 60:2)

2. Bulletin warns US analysts overwhelmed by pro-ISIS social media, military posts threatened - Fox News

U.S. investigators are becoming overwhelmed trying to keep up with the social media barrage by U.S.-based supporters of the Islamic State -- with the latest information suggesting "US military bases, locations, and events could be targeted in the near-term."

The warning comes in a new, six-page bulletin obtained exclusively by Fox News. It warns law enforcement and specifically military personnel to be vigilant during upcoming national holidays and military events due to the "heightened threat of attacks by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)."

Sent one day before the Memorial Day holiday weekend,the joint bulletin -- from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center -- advised there is no "credible" threat information targeting events on U.S. federal holidays. But it said, "we are aware of recent information suggesting US military bases, locations, and events could be targeted in the near-term." (Read more)

- Lord God Almighty in heaven, we offer praise to You for the groundswell of "prayer assaults" that were raised up over the Memorial Day weekend, that all who attended these special events would be protected. As a result, all of these activities were uneventful, and we were free to honor the fallen, as planned.

Abba, there are other patriotic days ahead. Help us, O Lord, to find the grace to remain on the wall together, even as we take care of our own day-to-day activities. THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THIS VICTORY. In Jesus' name we offer this chorus of PRAISE, amen and amen. - [for the intercessors] "Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power . . ." (Psalm 110:3 NASB)

[for the FBI analysts, etc., who are dealing with potential cyberattacks and feeling overwhelmed]
"For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light."(Mark 4:22)
"And he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you . . .'" (2 Corinthians 12:9)

3. FDA Approves Radiation Medical Countermeasure - FDA

A drug long-used to counter the negative effects of chemotherapy has won US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use in treating the nasty effects of exposure to radiation following a nuclear disaster. Known commercially as Neupogen, the drug has been shown to work by shielding the body's white blood cells to heighten a patient's chances of survival. (Read more here) and Read FDA Bulletin here.

- Oh, Lord, we are grieved at idea that the threat of radiation is so real that the government has felt the need to approve this drug as a defense. We pray, in the name of Jesus, that the citizens of the US will not be exposed to such danger ever. Please hear our prayer and protect the country You have established as a witness on earth to Your goodness. In Jesus' name, amen and amen.

- "The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul."

4. Statement by the Vice President on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia - The White House

Joe Biden Says Bible Believing Christians Violate LGBT Rights By Simply Existing - nowtheendbegins

Vice President Joe Biden say today that the rights of the LGBT people are violated by "religious condemnation". He is directly referring to Bible verses like the one posted at the top of this article. The Progressive Liberals are well aware that it is God, speaking by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, that condemns homosexuality in all it's many forms.

According to Joe Biden, the American Bible believing Christian who takes the Bible literally, is violating the "rights" of the LGBT by trusting in God's word. And this is why old-fashioned preaching will soon be classified as a "hate crime". Because Liberals can't stand it. Biden is also saying that the rights of the Christian are inferior to the rights of the LGBT individual. (Read more here)

(Read the White House statement here)

- Dear Lord!!! We ask You to bring revelation of Your ways to this leader of our country. We come against these words, in the name of Jesus, spoken for purposes other than truth and wellbeing of the Kingdom of God on earth. We place this man's heart in Your hands to turn as You desire. We pray no one will be deceived by his words of error.

- "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet." Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)

5. Church of England to consider 'transgender baptism' service - christiantoday

A "transgender baptism" service is to be considered by the Church of England for the first time. The idea is to bless into God's family the new identities of Christians who have undergone gender transition. The proposal was welcomed by the Church's most senior trans priest. Rev Rachel Mann, Rector of St Nicholas Burnage and a minor canon at Manchester Cathedral. (Read more here.)

- Father, forgive Your church for its abominable thinking that is devoid of Your heart and Your laws. We pray for a deep revelation of how You view "transgender" people to the clergy so that they will be able to lead Your people into righteousness. Bring about deliverance from the deceptions of the enemy in this important area under attack around the world, especially in America and in Great Britain. Give Your people a heart to love You and therefore to obey Your commandments.

- "And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel:" (2 Samuel 4:21)

6. Ireland Legalizes Gay Marriage in 'Social Revolution' - CBN

Ireland has become the first country to legalize same-sex marriage through popular vote by adding it to their constitution. Friday's referendum saw 62.1 percent of Irish voters say "yes" to changing the nation's constitution to define marriage as a union between two people regardless of their sex.

In response to the landslide vote, Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said Catholic leaders in Ireland needed urgently to find a new message and voice for reaching Ireland's young. "It's a social revolution . . . The church needs to do a reality check right across the board," Martin said. (Read more)

- "And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel:" (2 Samuel 4:21)

- (Prayer for Ireland offered by our friend, K, who writes Insights for Israel and who has just returned from a ministry trip to Ireland . . .)

Ireland has just voted overwhelmingly to change their constitution to bless the legality of gay marriage in that country. Prayers had better be ascending. The Lord may be ready to bring something very stressful upon that nation. We sent out the warning in April. The people of the land will now have to live with the consequences of their rebellion against YHVH.

- "And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel:" (2 Samuel 4:21)

7. Australia to Strip ISIS Suspects of Citizenship - CBN

Australia is introducing a new law that would strip dual citizens of their Australian citizenship for terror-related crimes. The law, expected to pass within weeks, would allow Islamic State supporters to be treated the same as Australians who join foreign armies at war against Australia.

"There should be no difference in how we treat Australians who join a hostile army and those engage in terrorism," Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said in a statement. "Both are betraying our country and don't deserve to be citizens of Australia." (Read more)

- Lord God, we praise You for the courage, wisdom and boldness taken by the leaders of Australia, who have correctly identified an enemy "within" and are now taking definitive measures to protect their citizens. We ask, dear Lord, that our own leaders in Congress and in the White House would also "see clearly" the threat among us and take similar measures to protect our own people. We ask this in Jesus' mighty name, amen and amen.

- " . . . the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." (Daniel 11:32)

8. Iran's mixed messages - Rouhani talks peace, while military flexes muscles - Jerusalem Post

The Iranian regime is sending mixed signals these days. While its president, Hassan Rouhani, speaks of moderation, its military, led by the high command of the Revolutionary Guards, continues with its saber-rattling.

In a rally near Tehran on Tuesday, Rouhani spoke of pursuing "the path of peace" and "constructive interaction with the world." "The absolute majority of the Iranian nation supports the path of peace, reconciliation and the course of constructive interaction with the world," Rouhani said. The president called for "unity, unanimity and harmony inside [the country] and resistance against enemy plots to create insecurity in the region."

While Rouhani spoke of harmony and understanding, the head of Iran's navy was singing a different tune - touting plans to build a fleet of speedboats that will bolster the Islamic Republic's maritime force. "Based on the fifth five-year (development) plan, we should materialize our objective of mass-producing military speedboats with the speed of 80 knots per hour," Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi told an assembled crowd in Tehran. "This is a formidable speed in the world's navies." (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, it appears from this report that words are spoken by the Iranian President to 'appease' the world's power nations. However the actions of the military reflect the 'true' plans of this nation. Father, have mercy upon us and protect us. We ask that You awaken the leaders of the world to respond and make their decisions based on the actions of this nation instead of the 'appeasing' words. We pray this in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil." (Proverbs 15:28 NKJV)

9. Amid Russia Tensions, 100 U.S., European Jets Hold Drills in Arctic - Moscow Times

About 100 fighter jets from the United States and eight European nations began an Arctic training exercise in the Nordic nations on Monday, a region worried by increased Russian military activity. The exercise, based in the north of Norway, Sweden and Finland with 4,000 personnel, is meant to test cooperation among Arctic nations near Russia. It was planned before Moscow's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region last year raised regional tensions. "The aim is to exercise and train units in the orchestration and conduct of complex air operations, in close relations to NATO partners," Norwegian brigadier general Jan Ove Rygg, heading the exercise, said in a statement.

The exercise, lasting from May 25 to June 5, is one of the biggest fighter jet exercises in Europe this year and the second of its type after one in 2013. Plans are for exercises every second year, testing everything from shooting down airborne targets to mid-air refueling. NATO members involved are the United States, Germany, Britain, France, the Netherlands and Norway, as well as non-members Sweden, Finland and Switzerland, which are linked to the alliance via NATO's partnership for peace.

Russia has stepped up military activity around the Nordic and Baltic region. Incursions into airspace have especially rattled the Baltic states and Sweden last year hunted in vain for a suspected submarine in its waters. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we clearly see escalating tensions on both sides of this 'Arctic standoff' between NATO and Russia. We ask, Father, that You rise up and confront the leaders of both sides to act to defuse this growing tension so that an extremely deadly and all - destructive war does not occur. We cry MERCY, praying this in the Name of Jesus, Amen and Amen.

- "Help me, O Lord my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, that they may know that this is Your hand-That You, Lord, have done it!" (Psalm 109:26-27 NKJV)

10. American destroyer joins large-scale military exercise in the Black Sea this week - Romania Insider

A total of 12 Romanian military ships, an American destroyer, a sea dredger from Bulgaria and some 1,500 troops conduct this week specific battle actions for the defense of sea communications. American destroyer USS Ross came to Constanta harbor last weekend, its second visit in the past 12 month, after a previous one in September 2014. The American ship is the star of this week's exercise in the Black Sea.

The military drills, part of the Trident Poseidon 2015 exercise, are carried out in Romania's territorial waters and the international waters of the Black Sea between May 25 and May 28. The exercise aims to strengthen the level of interoperability between NATO forces, as well as the interagency cooperation in Romania, in an environment with multiple threats, according to a statement of the Romanian Naval Forces.

The program includes an exercise that targets non-combatants evacuation from a conflict area. This action will take place in Constanta Military Port on May 27. (Read more)

- Abba Father, here again is an article reflecting NATO 'flexing its muscles' to show Russia how they are 'ready'. We cry for 'MERCY', Father. It appears that diplomacy is not being utilized to work through the differences here, but instead this is an ongoing growing 'show' of military strength. We take the Blood bought Cross of the Lord Jesus Christ and ram it into the gears of all these military exercises, planned by men and their "wisdom," and we instead call forth Your plan to bring peace to this troubled region. We pray this in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen. We pray this in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen.

- "Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies." (Psalm 108:12-13)

The prophetic world they created--Libs in hiding

The New York Times reports that many wealthy people are now putting "panic rooms" in their houses in case of a "home invasion." Interviewed were several former politicians, actors and actresses, all liberals. Welcome to the world they created. Now they are cowering in it, afraid to embrace the fallen world informed by the poor morals, failed politics and outright anti-God concepts they have helped to foment. One of the people who builds these bullet proof bunkers for hundreds of thousands of dollars says, "The world is a very scary place right now, especially for people of means; they feel cornered and threatened. When you have so much to lose, and you can afford to, you put a premium on your safety."

It probably doesn't occur to them that all their leftist ideals from abortion to same sex marriage to gun control to global warming to illegal immigration to glorification of violence in movies and television to the covetousness of heavy taxation to taking God out of the public square to non-gender bathrooms to, well whatever...you get the point--all this contributes to pushing the world toward a dark place. Actor Robert Redford said in a commencement speech at Maine's Colby College: "You're stepping into a world that's, well, pretty rough. It's pretty chaotic, pretty divisive. You've got climate change, you've got debt, you've got wars, you've got political paralysis. It's kind of a grim story." Captain Obvious or Major Obliviousness?

It's kind of like the "president" saying that the best way to stop street violence associated with poverty is through jobs. Yet his policies have not only driven a record number of people out of the workforce, but also have caused a record number to go on welfare. Another example is how liberals want strict enforcement of sexual harassment laws, yet they promote sex without consequences beginning in elementary school. They demand equal pay for equal work, yet women on their own staffs are paid far less than men doing the same jobs. It seems with these people that good intentions account for more than effective actions. And their actions have the opposite impact. Big hat, no cattle.

2 Timothy 3 is a prophecy about the fallen world in the latter days. Verse 1 says, "...in the last days perilous times shall come." The Apostle Paul goes on to list all the perils and they pretty well match the world in which we live. While others may hide from the perils they helped advance, we have a better way. Verses 14-17 advise: "But continue thou in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them; and that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." Let your light so shine!

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

A Decree Over ISIS Threats

A Decree Over ISIS Threats

"THE LORD . . . THE GOD OF ANGEL ARMIESS says, 'Do not be afraid of ISIS who smites with a rod and lifts up his staff against you . . . for yet a little while MY indignation against you shall be accomplished and MY anger shall be directed to their destruction.' They make many seize their belongings and flee for safety, yet this very day ISIS will halt at NOB ("Not Our Borders") and shake their fist at ZION . . . but just when ISIS is in sight of their goal . . . with terrorizing force THE LORD . . .THE GOD OF ANGEL ARMIES will hew them down. They fall by the MIGHTY ONE. They fall mightily . . .

Watchmen lift up their voices together and they sing, for they see THE LORD has comforted HIS people . . . THE LORD . . . THE GOD OF ANGEL ARMIES will make a full end of whatever is decreed in the midst of all the earth."

Our Grandmothers' Songs

Songs Our Grandmothers Sang:


"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus." (Hebrews 12:2)


O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There's a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!


Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion-
For more than conquerors we are!


His Word shall not fail you-He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

India heatwave toll nears 800

The death toll in the heatwave sweeping India has reached nearly 800 with temperatures nearing 50C (122F) in some areas.

Most deaths have taken place in the southern states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where more than 750 people have died since last week. Reports say 24 people have died from the heat in West Bengal and Orissa. Hospitals are on alert to treat heatstroke patients and authorities have advised people to stay indoors.

"The state government has taken up education programmes through television and other media to tell people not to venture into the outside without a cap, to drink water and other measures," news agency AFP quoted P Tulsi Rani, special commissioner for disaster management in the state, as saying.

"We have also requested NGOs and government organisations to open up drinking water camps so that water will be readily available for all the people in the towns," he added.

The Indian capital, Delhi, is enduring a week of sweltering heat as the maximum temperature in the city hit a two-year high of 45.5C (113.9F) on Monday. (BBC News) Read more.
- Father God, we do lift up these suffering souls in the nation of India today. We ask for relief from this intense and unrelenting heat wave, and for comfort for all. Lord God, there are millions in India who have not yet come to know you as their Savior. We ask for extended grace for the many missionaries on the land, that their outreach would be effective for You. In Jesus' name, amen.

- "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:22)

'Fix It, Jesus'

Emergency Prayer at Graduation Goes Viral

A recent high school graduate in Alabama is the spotlight for his impromptu graduation ceremony prayer.

When Thursday night's Clay-Chalksville High School graduation ceremony was interrupted by a medical emergency, graduating senior Christian Crawford stepped up to the podium and asked everyone to join him in prayer, The Trussville Tribune reported.

"Everybody, can I have your attention real quick?" Crawford asked. "We don't know what's going on, but we will pray. We know that prayer is power, and that God is able. Let's pray," he said as he bowed his head.
"Father God, we thank you for this day, Lord. We pray right now that whatever is going on, you will fix it, God. We pray that you will heal it, God. We pray that you will redeem it, God. We pray that you will deliver it, God," he prayed. "Because we know that you are a God who knows how to make a way," he continued.

"And in the name of Jesus we declare and decree in the name of Jesus that whatever is going on shall be fixed because you are a God who is a fixer. You are a God who is a healer. Jehovah God, Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Shiloh. Fix it, Jesus. In Jesus' name, amen."

When Crawford finished praying, the crowd cheered and the graduation ceremony continued. The video, posted courtesy of The Trussville Tribune has gone viral.

"I'm glad the video has gotten this far," Crawford said. "But it's all to God be the glory. If God is not getting the glory, then this whole thing is in vain."

Crawford is the senior class president and wants a career in politics. He has been asked to present the opening prayer at the Alabama legislature next Wednesday. (CBN)
