"Praying for All in Authority"

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

" . . . who knows whether you have come to the kingdom
for such a time as this?"
(Esther 4:14)

Queen Esther's story:


" . . . sometimes you have to go uninvited . . . Glory to the Most High!)


"For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways." (Psalm 91:11)

The Daily Brief

1. Jordanian King Warns Global Battle With ISIS Has Launched World War III - Jewish Press

Jordan's King Abdullah II is warning that the international battle against Daesh - the terror organization known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS or ISIL - has launched World War III, although the rest of the U.S.-led coalition fighting the radical Islamic terror group may not yet realize it.

~O Lord, our God, show Yourself strong against Your enemies, and ours. Arise from Your throne, and put Your enemies to flight, we pray. We thank You that You are the Living God, the only true God, and we worship You alone! We thank You that our times are in Your hands, and that You are the Lord of the nations. We put ourselves in agreement with You as to these wars, rumors of wars, and timing. Have Your way, Lord! Amen.

- "A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:8)

2. Netanyahu speech divides Dems - The Hill

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's fiery takedown of one of Obama's top foreign policy priorities split leading Democrats, some hailing the speech as a thoughtful warning from America's closest ally in the Middle East and others condemning it as an underhanded attack on the White House.

~O Lord God of Israel, and our God, we thank You for those Democrats who chose to stay in the House Chamber and listen to the Prime Minister. We thank You that they extended to him courtesy and respect, to at least listen to him. We ask that all who attended will continue to "think on these things" and weigh them carefully, and that they, through Your wisdom, and Your Hand, will successfully intervene in halting this "bad deal" in its tracks, and bring glory to You. We thank You that, as one Senator said, 'Netanyahu is our Esther', bringing warning to the king.' (Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) Thank You, Lord. Amen.

-"For wisdom will enter your heart, knowledge will be enjoyable for you, discretion will watch over you, and discernment will guard you. They will save you from the way of evil and from those who speak deceitfully. (Proverbs 2:10-12)

3. Netanyahu responds to Obama: We did indeed present practical alternative to Iran deal - Jerusalem Post

Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu landed in Israel on Wednesday after his two-day trip to Washington saying that "many around the world heard what Israel has to say about the bad deal with Iran." Apparently pushing back against those saying that there was no tactical alternative in his speech, Netanyahu said that he did indeed present a practical alternative that would extend Iran's break out time by adding new restrictions.

~Abba, we thank You for Your protection and safe return to Israel of PM Netanyahu. We also thank You for filling his mouth with Your words, and giving him much wisdom. We also thank You that he was able to deliver Your message with clarity and respond graciously to our president's criticism of him. Thank You for Your mercy and Your grace. Amen.

-"The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, he awakens my ear to hear as the learned. The Lord God has opened my ear; and I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away." (Isaiah 50:4,5)

4. Critical day for ObamaCare as high court hears new challenge - The Hill

The nine justices of the Supreme Court on Wednesday will again hold the future of ObamaCare in their hands, as they take up a new legal challenge that could strip insurance subsidies from millions of people.

~Father, we come to You concerning this matter before the Supreme Court today relative to the Healthcare mandate. We ask that the case will be clearly articulated and documented by both parties, and that You would grant Your wisdom to these nine justices, and that they would humbly seek that wisdom from You. We ask that the decision, which is scheduled to be made known in June, will give them plenty of time to think on these things and rule with discretion and understanding. We ask that the outcome of Your choice will come forth, in Yeshua's Name we pray, Amen.

-"They shall judge the people with righteous judgment. You shall not misinterpret or misapply judgment; you shall not be partial, or take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous."(Deuteronomy 16:19,20)

5. Critics tie email to Benghazi - The Hill

The revelation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private email account for government business breathed new life Tuesday into a congressional investigation of Benghazi. "Our interest is in gaining access [to] all the documents," Gowdy said. "We want her emails and her documents that are relevant to Benghazi."

~Lord, we thank You that You desire truth to triumph over evil, and You desire to expose things done in secret, so they may be dealt with appropriately. We ask that this revelation regarding Secretary of State Clinton's use of her personal emails to discuss government business, will bring about a further digging to see if there is information regarding the Benghazi fiasco. We praise You that You have said that the truth will set us free! Amen.

-"He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He." (Deuteronomy 32:4)

The Middle East in Focus

"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you." (Isaiah 54:10)

1. Shas leader says party wants Netanyahu as PM -Times of Israel

Shas leader Aryeh Deri indicated Tuesday at a party gathering that he was likely to recommend that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu form the next government following the March 17 election.

"Bibi," he said, referring to the prime minister by his nickname, "we're with you. We want to be with you. We want you to be prime minister."

But Deri, speaking at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena to thousands of party loyalists, said Shas needed Netanyahu to act like late Likud prime minister Menachem Begin - well regarded in traditional Sephardic circles - rather than secularist Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, seen by Shas's low-income base as aloof and elitist.

2. UK bans ad for implying Jerusalem's Old City part of Israel - Times of Israel

LONDON - Britain's advertising watchdog banned an Israeli government tourism advertisement for suggesting that the Old City of Jerusalem is part of Israel on Wednesday.

The newspaper brochure showed a panorama of the walled Old City with the text "Israel has it all", and was ruled misleading by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which said it implied the UNESCO World Heritage Site was part of Israel.

Israel, which has controlled all of Jerusalem since 1967, considers the Old City as part of its capital, which the international community mostly rejects.

The dispute is an emotional subject as the area contains places precious to Christians, Jews and Muslims, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Western Wall and al-Asqa Mosque.

3. Iran denounces Netanyahu's 'lie-spreading' Congress speech -Times of Israel

Iran denounced as "lie-spreading" a speech Tuesday in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the US Congress that a nuclear deal being negotiated with Tehran would threaten the world.

In a statement, foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham rejected as "very repetitious and boring Netanyahu's continuous lie-spreading about the goals and intentions behind Iran's peaceful nuclear program."

Earlier Tuesday, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted that "US officials are obliged to show consideration for Israel & cover up its crimes."

4. Herzog: After the Applause, Netanyahu Remains Alone - Israel National News

Opposition leader MK Yitzhak Herzog was unimpressed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress, claiming on Tuesday evening that Israel has been left isolated, even after the speech.

Speaking at Moshav Nir Moshe in southern Israel, Herzog noted the significance of his being in the Negev instead of in Washington.

"As you know, I could have been somewhere else this evening. But it was important for me to be here. I'd rather be in the Negev than in Washington because the security problems in the Gaza Envelope, Kiryat Shmona, Manara, Zarit and Jerusalem concern me no less than the threat of a nuclear Iran, which I do not underestimate," he said.

"No Israeli leader would tolerate a nuclear Iran. The determination to prevent Iranian attainment of nuclear weapons crosses continents and cross parties," he continued.

5. 'Time has Come for an Alternative to Two-State Solution' - Israel National News

Days before the March 17 elections, the Women in Green (WiG) movement has published issue number five of its Sovereignty Journal, which features interviews with right-wing politicians and thinkers in an attempt to shift the public discourse towards declaring sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.

The new issue, which will be distributed in 120,000 copies in Hebrew and English and can be requested from WiG, includes interviews with politicians Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud), Economics Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home), and Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis (Likud).

It also features interviews with the head of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) Itamar Marcus, Prof. Moshe Arens, Prof. Eliav Shochetman and other right-wing thinkers, in addition to articles by Attorney Dafna Netanyahu and Jerusalem Post editor Caroline Glick.

WiG heads Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar emphasized that the journal issue is important given that the public is caught up in the leftist parties debating social and economic matters ahead of elections, and losing sight of how behind these issues the left aims to establish "a Palestinian terror state in the heart of the Land of Israel."

6. Saudi pundit supports Netanyahu's Congress address -Times of Israel

A columnist writing in the the Saudi daily Al-Jazirah expressed support Monday for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's determination to address Congress on Iran, even as the Israeli leader faced mounting criticism both at home and from Democratic lawmakers.

In his column, Ahmad Al-Faraj wrote that President Barack Obama, "one of the worst American presidents," is working to sign a deal with Iran at the expense of America's longtime allies in the Gulf. Netanyahu's campaign against the deal, he continued, was therefore justified and it served the interests of the Gulf states.

"Netanyahu will devote his speech to expressing his firm objection to the signing of an agreement between the Obama administration and Iran on the nuclear issue. He hopes to convince the Congress members that he is right, which could delay the agreement," wrote Faraj, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors Arabic-speaking media outlets.

7. Court Allows Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount - Israel National News

Temple activists were euphoric Monday after a precedent-setting ruling by Magistrates' Court Judge Malka Aviv in the case of Yehuda Glick vs. the Israeli Police, a day earlier. The judge ruled that the police "must make sure that Jews are able to pray on the Temple Mount" - in a ruling replete with harsh criticism of the police's policies on the Temple Mount.

Activists were quoted on a Temple activists blog as saying: "This day will be remembered for generations in the annals of the struggle for the return of Jews to the Temple Mount."

The police are legally bound "to ensure that Jews are able to pray on the Temple Mount, and not to act sweepingly to prevent Jews from praying on the Temple Mount," the judge determined.

The modern Esther story with a dangerous twist
Since the early 2000's, the Ayatollahs of Persia (Iran) have been developing nuclear technology to advance the "peace of Islam." During that time frame, even to this day, the leadership of Iran has stated repeatedly that they sought to "wipe Israel off the face of the map." The United States has participated in a United Nations negotiating team of Britain, France, China and Russia to get Iran to stop its nuclear program. Until now, where the US "president" has taken it upon himself to negotiate directly with the terrorist state that has called for the destruction of both the US and Israel. These negotiations appear to be a ruse to allow Iran to continue its nuclear program under the guise of developing energy.

On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee saying that "As prime minister of Israel, I have a moral obligation to speak up in the face of these dangers while there's still time to avert them." Netanyahu's contention is that the US "president's" solution of giving Iran a decade to enrich uranium for "peaceful purposes" gravely endangers Israel. For Iran and Islam, "peaceful purposes" very well translates to "The Peace of Islam," meaning all nations submit to Islam. The US "president" says that Netanyahu's visit to the US and subsequent speeches to AIPAC and Congress are a distraction to the greater issue of Iran exercising its nuclear rights.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State John Kerry is basking in the glory of his new-found diplomatic BFFs (best friends forever), the Iranian negotiating team. Reuters reports that Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met for about 90 minutes on the first of what could be three days of talks in the Swiss lakeside town of Montreux on curbing Iran's nuclear program. Coming out of that meeting, Kerry warned, "We are concerned by reports that suggest selective details of the ongoing negotiations will be discussed publicly in the coming days. Doing so would make it more difficult to reach the goal that Israel and others say they share in order to get to a good deal." Israel has said it opposes Kerry's deal.

This is a modern story of Esther with a dangerous twist. Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is playing the part of King Ahasuerus of Persia. The US "president" is Haman, the king's servant bent on destroying the Jews. Kerry is Haman's lieutenant. Netanyahu plays both Esther and her uncle Mordecai--both trying to save the Jews from destruction.The drama is being played out during Purim, the feast celebrating the delivery of the Jewish people from the execution squads of Haman. Esther 9:28 says, "And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed." We all must remember. Pray that the American Haman does not prevail.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Prophetically losing the way

While the US "president," playing the role of an American Haman, says that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said nothing new in his Esther-like speech before a joint session of Congress, anyone who heard the speech or read its text, knows that a true leader took a bad one to school. While admitting that he did not watch the speech, the "president" responded saying, "Prime Minister Netanyahu has not offered any kind of viable alternative that would achieve the same verifiable mechanism to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon." In reading the text, the American Haman must have missed a key segment of Netanyahu's stirring speech. He did offer an alternative, a very practical and viable one.

Netanyahu outlined why the "president's" deal is a bad one: "...this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That's why this deal is so bad. It doesn't block Iran's path to the bomb; it paves Iran's path to the bomb." Then offered a viable alternative: "We can insist that restrictions on Iran's nuclear program not be lifted for as long as Iran continues its aggression in the region and in the world. Before lifting those restrictions, the world should demand that Iran do three things. First, stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East. Second, stop supporting terrorism around the world. And third, stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state."

Since 2009, this "president" has been on a path to allow Iran nuclear weapons. On June 4, 2009 in Cairo, he said, "No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons...And any nation - including Iran - should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty." This president, more than any other, has accelerated Iran's "peace of Islam" nuclear program by allowing the terrorist state to negotiate while working furiously to develop nuclear capacity. His plan would allow Iran to continue its nuclear ambitions and even develop nuclear weapons with impunity after 10 years. It is insane. Unless you support Islam.

Netanyahu ended his speech saying: "Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land. And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years. I leave you with his message today, (SPEAKING IN HEBREW he quoted from Deuteronomy 31:7-8), "Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them."" Verse 8 says, "And the Lord, he it is that go before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, nor forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed." Israel will find its way with God, but has America prophetically lost its way?

Senate could take up Iran bill next week

Senate could take up Iran bill next week

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the Senate could take up legislation on the Iran nuclear talks next week. McConnell said the legislation would allow Congress to weigh in on any deal made between the administration and Iran over its nuclear program.

"This bill will ripen by next week. It will be on the floor of the Senate for debate next week. We think the timing is important, we think it will help the administration from entering into a bad deal," the Kentucky Republican told reporters during a press conference.

The legislation is similar to a bill introduced last week by a bipartisan group of senators, except that it has a different enactment date, according to an update from Senate Democrats.

Under that bill, which was introduced by a bipartisan group of senators including Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) last week, Congress would have 60 days to debate any agreement, and during that time, Obama wouldn't be able to remove sanctions against Iran.

McConnell said Tuesday from the Senate floor that the legislation would allow the American people "have a say in any deal." "Congress must be involved in a reviewing and voting on an agreement reached between this White House and Iran, and this bill would ensure that that happens," he said.

McConnell's announcement comes after a speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a joint meeting of Congress. He warned lawmakers against accepting a "bad deal." "For more than a year, we've been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well, this is a bad deal. It's a very bad deal. We're better off without it," he said. (The Hill) Read more.

- Lord God Almighty, we come before Your Throne as the Omniscient One. Father God, the whole world now has its gaze upon this critical piece of legislation. We thank You, Lord, that as we ask . . . You do answer.

We ask now for Your wisdom to rest upon every member of the Senate, and the House, as they write and pass a bill that will ensure the safety of Israel, and cause Iran to stand down from its nuclear ambitions. We ask this miracle in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

- "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you." (Psalm 32:8)

Alveda King "Unleashed"

Alveda King Unleashed as She Chastises the Congressional Black Caucus for Its Anti-Israel, Anti-Netanyahu Stance

"Black Caucus members have placed slavish party loyalty above the lives of our most oppressed and helpless brothers and sisters-the unborn. They have turned their backs on children in the womb, the victims of horrifying violence, and now they turn their backs on the leader of Israel, the home God gave to His chosen people." -Dr. Alveda King

(Washington, DC)-The following is released by Dr. Alveda King:

Israel faces annihilation from Iran, a sponsor of terrorism that is developing nuclear weapons. It faces terror attacks from radical Islamists on every side. The leader of Israel comes to our Capitol at one of the most critical junctures in his nation's history and what do members of the Congressional Black Caucus do?

They boycott Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel.

Why? Pride and quibbles over protocol, citing disrespect to President Obama from the Prime Minister because he didn't clear his trip with the White House before accepting Speaker Boehner's invitation.

But since when do you turn your back on an old friend over an alleged sleight? What kind of person turns his nose in the air when a trusted ally who faces death wants to talk with you?

Let's not forget that Prime Minister Netanyahu has not always been treated graciously at the White House. And let's not forget that one of the President's chief campaign strategists is right now actively working in Israel to defeat Mr. Netanyahu in Israel's upcoming election. If one wants to find reasons to be offended, the Prime Minister doesn't have to look too far.

This is not the first time the CBC has placed politics above people's lives. Black Caucus members have placed slavish party loyalty above the lives of our most oppressed and helpless brothers and sisters-the unborn. They have turned their backs on children in the womb, the victims of horrifying violence, and now they turn their backs on the leader of Israel, the home God gave to His chosen people.

God promised Abraham, the father of the Hebrew and Arab nations that He would bless his seed. He made no exception that said, "But it's OK if you walk out on the leader of My chosen people for your pride's sake." God said to Isaac's children, "I will bless you abundantly." God also promised to abundantly bless Ishmael's children. So God is impartial with His love to all of His Children. The Congressional Black Caucus would do well to remember the words of Martin Luther King: "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools." Perhaps there is a way to negotiate peaceful nonviolent conflict in the world if we can get past the enemy of pride.
God instructs us, "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall." We puff ourselves up at our own peril. But while the only peril the Congressional Black Caucus sees is damage to the President's prestige, the peril Prime Minister Netanyahu faces is the nuclear destruction of his entire nation. The Congressional Black Caucus needs a reality check.
And the reality check is this-ultimately, there is no escape for the sin of pride or for the sin of abortion or for any other sin, except through the redeeming work of Jesus on the cross. It's time that the Congressional Black Caucus look to God and His Word instead of President Obama, Planned Parenthood, or some political playbook.
When we look to God, we see our pride melt away, we see to whom glory is due, and we see our friends as more important than ourselves. We see leadership as servanthood, serving God and serving others-not ourselves. Our priorities are realigned.

The Congressional Black Caucus needs realignment. It should have turned its back on selfish pride and extended a welcoming hand to Prime Minister Netanyahu. (Breaking Christian News)

Jesus' House? Archaeologists Think They May Have Uncovered the Home Where the World's Savior Grew Up

(Israel)-A building thought to be where Mary and Joseph raised Jesus has been found by an archaeologist from the University of Reading.

While conducting a wider archaeological study of Nazareth and its hinterland, in Israel, Dr. Ken Dark identified a Byzantine church with a crypt or cellar containing a first-century AD house.

The church matches the description in a famous late seventh-century pilgrim account, De Locis Sanctis (concerning the holy places) of the church built above the house where it was believed that Jesus was brought up centuries before.

The house is partly made of mortared stone walls, and partly cut into a rocky hillside. Due to its location and careful preservation in later centuries the building is incredibly well preserved.

The house and remains of the Byzantine church are now preserved in the Sisters of Nazareth convent in the center of the modern city of Nazareth. Although they were known to the nuns and pilgrims since the 1880s, their significance was unrealized prior to Dr. Dark's work and they had never been recorded or published in detail.

Dr. Dark, from the University of Reading's Research Centre for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies, said: "Although world-famous for its association with Jesus Christ, Nazareth had received surprisingly little attention from archaeologists. The convent cellars contain well-preserved Roman-period, Byzantine and later walls and other features. These include a first-century house, early Roman-period burials and a Byzantine cave-church. Above them once stood a large Byzantine church, encompassing the earlier house and tombs in its crypt."

Dr. Dark identified this as the Church of the Nutrition, described in the seventh-century pilgrim account De Locis Sanctis, so-called because it was built to encapsulate the house where Jesus was brought up.

Dr. Dark added: "De Locis Sanctis describes a crypt with two tombs (on) either side of the house where it was believed Jesus had been raised by Mary and Joseph. These features are present at the Sisters of Nazareth site."

In 2006, the nuns at the convent granted Dr. Dark and his team complete access to the site along with records and finds from earlier excavations. By combining a detailed recording of the site and objects, with an extensive review of earlier unpublished work by the nuns and a Jesuit priest, Henri Senès, they built up a clear picture of the site's development from its first century origins.

NASA Releases First Global Rainfall and Snowfall Map from New Mission

Global Precipitation Measurement mission has produced its first global map of rainfall and snowfall.

Like a lead violin tuning an orchestra, the GPM Core Observatory - launched one year ago on Feb. 27, 2014, as a collaboration between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency - acts as the standard to unify precipitation measurements from a network of 12 satellites. The result is NASA's Integrated Multi-satellite Retrievals for GPM data product, called IMERG, which combines all of these data from 12 satellites into a single, seamless map.

The map covers more of the globe than any previous NASA precipitation data set and has repeat coverage every three hours, allowing scientists to see how rain and snow storms move around nearly the entire planet. As scientists work to understand all the elements of Earth's climate and weather systems, and how they could change in the future, GPM provides a major step forward in providing the scientific community comprehensive and consistent measurements of precipitation.

"With the GPM core observatory acting as an anchor to allow us to cross-calibrate data from a very diverse set of satellite measurements from our international and interagency partners, we can clearly see the big picture in terms of where it's raining or snowing across the globe," said Ramesh Kakar, GPM program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

The GPM mission includes additional satellites from NASA and JAXA, as well as satellites from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Defense's Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, Indian Space Research Organisation, and France's Centre National d'Études Spatiales.

A visualization of the data from this April to September time frame offers a glimpse at what the new data set will provide to scientists.

"What this visualization shows so clearly is that all precipitation is interrelated all around the globe," said GPM Project Scientist Gail Skofronick-Jackson at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "What people sometimes don't realize is how rain over their backyard in the U.S. then goes on to affect the people in Europe once the storms go across the Atlantic." (Source: NASA; exceprts)
