One Step at a Time:
Introducing Five Dates to Mark on Your Calendars
Monday, February 23, 2015
Five Dates to Mark on Your Calendar:
Daily now, we are seeing headlines from the mainstream media trumpeting this season of "abounding sin."
Whether we look inward, to our own nation, or "outward," to nations beyond our borders . . . everywhere it seems that evil is increasing and that these dark days are getting darker.
In the quiet way behind the scenes that our Lord often works, initiatives are beginning to come together that demonstrate that His continued Grace and His Mercy yet is resting upon our people!
To help each one of you "seize the moment," we are setting aside time tonight to call your attention to at least five of these events that might otherwise be lost in the news.
So, please stay with us as we "walk you through" each one, knowing that in the days ahead, these events will be announced again, with more details to follow.
Step One: Tues., March 3rd
Step One: Tuesday, March 3rd
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Speak before a Joint Session of Congress
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting Come to a Close
Please continue to hold this speech before our Lord, asking Him to remove any remaining barriers that the enemy has set in place to either block him from giving this address, or to divert the public's attention that they not take note of his warning.
We quote this prayer request from The Elijah Prayer Army:
Pray for PM Netanyahu's speech in the US Congress that he will be able to warn against making concessions to Iran!
"The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty." (Pr 22:3)
Step Two: Wed., March 4th
Step Two: Wednesday, March 4th
Event to Repent to Support Israel
(In Preparation for Purim)
In addition to this historic speech by the Prime Minister of Israel, next week will also mark the date of Purim -- the time of celebration for the Jews as they remember the triumph of Queen Esther who saved her nation from the schemes of the wicked Haman.
(Please see Step Three, below, for more about Purim.)
Traditionally, the day preceding Purim is a time of fasting for the Jews, and a time of deep reflection.
This year, on that date (Wednesday, March 4th), a coalition of ministry leaders led by Pastor Jeff Daley of the National Day of Repentance, is encouraging all our Jewish friends to offer actions to not only pray, but to also REPENT of their own sins before the Lord.
Just as Queen Esther led her people in a time of great peril for their nation, so the the time is now to follow the Lord's instructions in 2 Chronicles 7:14, 15. It is written:
". . . if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place." (2 Chronicles 7:14,15)
On that day, we, as believers, have the opportunity to come alongside our Jewish friends through our own intercession to once again support Israel in a time of great peril through a spiritual solution to this spiritual crisis.
> > > We encourage all of our readers to prayerfully consider this document in preparation for this "set time" on the Hebrew Calendar.
May each one -- Jew and Gentile -- in our own closet of prayer, take this time to search our own hearts for the sin that so easily entangles us, and to come to our Father for cleansing, healing and renewal. Amen.
"Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life." (Acts 11:18)
Step Three: Thursday, March 5th
Step Three: Thursday, March 5th
The Feast of Purim
The feast of Purim is perhaps the most joyful holiday on the Hebrew Calendar, and for good reason!
On this date, so many years ago. after three days of taking no food or drink until her people be freed, Queen Esther wrought the final victory over the wicked Haman, who sought to destroy her people.
We commend to you the Book of Esther, in its entirety, to "seize this moment" with Israel and to declare and decree that the spirit of Haman, that seeks to divide her land and destroy her people, is rendered null and void through the work of the Cross.
"And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14)
Step Four: Friday, March 20th
Step Four: Friday, March 20th
The Midpoint of the Shemitah Year
(A Solar Eclipse Will be Visible in the United States)
In the midst of this year of judging, it is perhaps worth noting that Friday, March 20th marks the exact center, or middle date, of the Shemitah year.
If one considers the design of an anchor, used by the Navy to secure its vessels, we can "see" that the lowest point of the anchor represents that date . . .
Until then, we may each have been "swinging back and forth a bit" as we seek to find and to know the center of God's will in our lives and His path for our future.
But at the center point, we come before His Throne of Grace, trusting in His mercy.
Heaven forbid that any of us, with that anchor, may be found "weighed in the balance and found wanting!" (Daniel 5:27)
"With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness." (Isaiah 26:9)
Step Five: Friday, April 3rd
Step Five: Friday, April 3rd
Passover, and a Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse
The Passover Prayer Surge 2015
We would like to invite you and your ministry to join in on the Passover Prayer Surge 2015. Passover this year falls on Friday night, April 3rd, and the blood moon will occur in the early hours of Saturday morning, April 4th.
Why a Passover Prayer surge now?
WHY: "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision, for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision" (Joel 3:14)
From these verses, we see that there are two signs that the day of the Lord is near:
*Multitudes will be brought to a "valley of decision" where a monumental decision is to be made:
- At the time this decision is being made, a sign will be seen in the sun AND the moon; they will be darkened. These two signposts, when they happen in close proximity to each other, this is a big sign telling us that the day of the Lord is NEAR.
Yahweh warns us that He will judge the nations for dividing the land of Israel:
Behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and divided my land. Joel 3: 1-2
What is this "valley of decision" about? The decision is this: whether to divide the land of Israel in order to create a full member Palestinian state . . . or not.
There is an election coming up in Israel on 3/17/15. These elections are like no other elections. Why are these elections so significant?
Multitudes of people in Israel will be in this "valley of decision" on 3/17/15 as they choose between two possible futures:
- a future "secular Zion" that aligns with the "Two state solution" or
- a future "biblical Zion" that aligns with and embraces the Abrahamic covenant; that the land is to remain forever undivided and forever in the possession of Yahweh and His people.
There will be more multitudes in this valley of decision soon after the Israeli elections. The UN Security Council will be considering the same decision: whether to divide the land of Israel in order to declare and decree a full member Palestinian state . . . or not. There are at least two UN Security Council resolutions that will soon be considered and voted upon sometime after the Israeli elections.
So, this is a call for a PRAYER SURGE, a call to the wall. We are inviting Christians, Jews, and Messianics to join with us to watch and pray over Israel on Passover night, April 3rd and through the night hours into Saturday morning, April 4th.

Today's Prayer Alert
Al Shabaab calls for attack on Mall of America in new video
A CALL TO PRAY OVER OUR SHOPPING MALLS
A new video from Al Shabaab purportedly shows the terror group calling for an attack on Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn. According to Fox 9, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
The narrator, his face wrapped in a black-and-white kaffiyeh-type scarf and wearing a camouflage jacket, spoke with a British accent and appeared to be of Somali origin. He accused Kenyan troops in Somalia of committing abuses against Somali Muslims. He ended the video by calling on Muslim men to attack other shopping malls in Western countries.
An image of the Mall of America is shown in the video, alongside its GPS coordinates. The mall says it is ramping up its security in response. (Fox News)
> > > In light of this breaking news, and following the burden of the LORD, Capitol Hill Prayer Partners is now calling ALL WHO ARE IN OUR NETWORK to make the security of all of our shopping malls a matter of highest priority in prayer.
PLEASE JOIN US NOW IN MAKING THIS DECREE:
Declaration "for such a time as this"
O Lord God of Hosts - God of Angel armies - who is mighty like You, O Lord? - You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm -- Your right hand and Your holy arm have gained You the victory! LORD SABAOTH - We implore You to put on Your righteousness as a breastplate with Your garments of vengeance. Clad Yourself with holy zeal - Arise as our DELIVERER and raise Your standard against the enemy!
Mighty Jehovah, the covenant keeping God - we bring You in remembrance of the blood of the martyrs upon this land. Remember the faith of our founding fathers and their holy covenant with You for the dedication of this land to the glory of God and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.. O, Lord, do not forget or forsake this covenant, we pray. For IT IS WRITTEN: "The scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous." (Ps. 125:3) For the sake of Your mighty Name, do not allow our enemies to triumph over us! Arise! and repay fury to Your adversaries and recompense to Your enemies!
In the Name of Jesus, we stand and declare, as God's Kingdom Representatives on earth, the severing of the cords of the wicked network of terrorist cells in this nation, including the dismantling and failure of all rogue jihadist plans. We proclaim disarray, confusion, defection, and a holy fear of God into the enemy camp. (Matt.17:25) We declare the failure of any and all terror plots against the American people. And we rebuke the spirit of fear which would seek to immobilize people, business and government. For the sake of our King and His Kingdom, we call forth the armies of heaven to engage in this battle and to encamp around and protect (Ps.34:7) our borders, waterways, highways, railways, subways, shipyards, military installations, government buildings, the power grid, and all public venues, including schools, airports, office buildings, post offices and shopping malls -- including the Mall of America -- and every other place that could be a target for terror.
We declare over the entry-ways of our cities and our nation: "LIFT UP YOUR HEADS O YE GATES - AND BE LIFTED UP YE EVERLASTING DOORS - THAT THE KING OF GLORY MAY COME IN - the LORD STRONG AND MIGHTY - THE LORD MIGHTY IN BATTLE!" O LORD OF HOSTS (Ps. 24:7-10) the heavens are Yours, and the earth also . . .
"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne." (Ps. 89:11 & 14) Establish the dominion of Your throne over our wayward nation -- in the Mighty Name of Jesus and for His Glory!
