Focus on Israel

1. Report: Iran expected to attack Israel following Lebanon's May 6 election - Jerusalem Online

On Monday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad claimed that the latest airstrikes in Syria constitute an escalation in hostility toward Syria. In the airstrikes, several sites in the Hama and Aleppo areas were destroyed. Pro-Assad media outlets and Hezbollah have accused Israel of carrying out the airstrikes.

"The entire region is in a stage where the political maps are being redrawn," Assad said during a meeting with an Iranian lawmaker, according to Hadashot news. "The incorporation of other countries in the phase of direct aggression [against Syria] after their plans failed only increases the determination of the Syrians to eradicate all forms of terrorism."

Meanwhile, the New York Times reported that more than 200 missiles were destroyed in last night's attack, quoting an unnamed official from a regional alliance that includes Iran, Syria and Hezbollah. In addition, the official said that 11 Iranians were among the 16 people who were killed.

2. Israeli official says Israel should welcome Trump peace plan - Washington Post

JERUSALEM - A top Israel official said Monday that his government has never had a more favorable ally in the White House than Donald Trump and therefore it should welcome his administration's forthcoming peace plan regardless of its content.

Michael Oren, the deputy minister for diplomacy in the prime minister's office, said the U.S. president's much-anticipated plan will undoubtedly require Israeli concessions, but that Israel would be foolish to reject it.

"I have never known a team to be more favorably disposed to us," Oren, a former Israeli ambassador to Washington, told foreign journalists. "My own feeling is to strongly recommend that the Israeli government accept this plan with an open mind, if not open arms, that we engage with it energetically and that we certainly don't reject it out of hand."

3. Palestinian terror groups trying to kidnap soldiers on Gaza border - IDF chief - Times of Israel

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot said Tuesday that Palestinian terror groups had attempted to kidnap soldiers during mass protests on the Gaza border which he said were a front for terrorist activity.

At a ceremony marking the installation of a military top liaison to the Palestinians, Eisenkot said, "In recent weeks, we've once again seen the complexity of the situation, when our forces found themselves facing mass protests that served as cover for terrorist actions, attacks on soldiers, attempts at kidnapping, attacks on military posts, and attempts to infiltrate [Israeli] towns."

Eisenkot did not provide further details.

4. 'The Battle With Israel Has Moved Outside The Occupied Lands:' Hamas Leaders Debate International Terror Escalation
- Algemeiner

Prominent supporters of Hamas have been engaged in a fraught debate on whether to launch terrorist operations against Israeli targets abroad, following the killing earlier this month of a Palestinian engineer in Malaysia in a drive-by shooting that his family blamed on Israel's Mossad intelligence service.

Dr. Fadi al-Batsh, said by Palestinian sources to have been a Hamas official, was walking to morning prayers at a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, when he was shot dead by a passing motorcyclist on Apr. 21. Among those who paid tribute to al-Batsh - a Gazan who worked as a lecturer in electrical engineering - was Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, who urged the Malaysian government to launch an investigation that would "reveal the involvement of the Mossad organization in the assassination." Haniyeh also added pointedly, "The battle with Israel has moved outside the occupied lands."

Haniyeh's latter statement has resulted in a wide-ranging debate in the pro-Hamas media about the legitimacy and efficacy of attacking Israeli targets around the world. A report released on Tuesday by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) documentedseveral instances of open calls for military action against Israel "outside the occupied lands," all of them published by Hamas-linked outlets in the days following al-Batsh's death.

Writing in the Filastin daily, columnist Fayez Abu Shamalah asked, "Why shouldn't the response come outside the borders of Palestine, when the Palestinians and Arabs are being attacked outside the land of Palestine?"

5. Dead Sea Scroll fragment unveiled in Israel may point to an unknown manuscript - Times of Israel

Previously unseen Dead Sea Scroll fragments, which had been stored in cigar boxes since archaeologists unearthed them in the 1950s, were identified and unveiled at an international conference on Tuesday in honor of the 70th anniversary of the scrolls' discovery in Jerusalem.

The tiny fragments, all thought to be taken from Qumran's Cave 11, are game changers and provide new puzzle pieces towards completing the picture of known published scrolls, experts said.

One of the fragments, unusually written 2,000 years ago in anachronistic First Temple script, may even point to a wholly unique, previously unknown manuscript. "This fragment could not be attributed to any one of the known manuscripts," the conference organizers said. "This raises the possibility that it belonged to a still unknown manuscript."

The Daily Brief

1. U.S. Confirms Authenticity of Secret Iran Nuclear Docs, Officials See Game Over for Deal - FreeBeacon

U.S. officials and congressional insiders view the disclosure Monday by Israel of Iran's ongoing efforts to develop a nuclear weapon as game over for the landmark nuclear deal, telling the Washington Free Beacon that new evidence of Iran's top secret nuclear workings makes it virtually impossible for President Donald Trump to remain in the agreement. Senior Trump administration officials confirmed the findings as authentic and praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's for disclosing thousands of secret documents proving Iran lied about its past work on a nuclear warhead, telling the Free Beacon the revelation was a "powerful presentation" by Israel outlining why the Iran deal must be fixed or killed.

The State Department further confirmed that "new details in this information are consistent with a large body of evidence and intelligence the U.S. government has amassed over many years on Iran's past clandestine nuclear weapons program," according to the official. In addition, the new "information indicates plans for Iran's nuclear weapons program included building five nuclear weapons," the official said. "It demonstrates once again that Iranian leaders have for years lied to the world and their own citizens when they claim Iran has never pursued nuclear weapons." (Read More)

Father, we pray these revelations will rescind the Iran deal for France and Germany as well. We pray renewed pressure upon Iran will eliminate their ability to develop these weapons and diminish their influence in the region.

Do not grant the wicked their desires, Lord; do not let their plans succeed.
(Psalm 140:8)

2. NY Times Prints Dozens of Questions Mueller Wants to Ask Trump - CNS News

The New York Times has obtained and printed more than 40 questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller reportedly wants to ask President Donald Trump as part of the Russia coordination probe. As noted by the Times, the "open-ended" questions fall into four broad categories -- and they "appear to be an attempt to penetrate the president's thinking, to get at the motivation behind some of his most combative Twitter posts and to examine his relationships with his family and his closest advisers.

Michael S. Schmidt, one of the Times reporters who broke the story, called in to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow show Monday night shortly after his story was published. "Let me explain how these questions came about," Schmidt told Maddow: There had been a lot of negotiations that had gone on between Trump's folks and Mueller's folks. In March, it got a little contentious, and Mueller's office offered to have the president's lawyers come in and be told the questions that they wanted to ask them. So the president's lawyers went in, they met with Mueller's investigators, and they went through subject after subject after subject that they wanted to ask about. The list of questions compiled by President Trump's attorneys was given to the New York Times by "a person outside Mr. Trump's legal team," the newspaper said. (Read More)

Father, we pray President Trump will be protected from this legal game of 'process crimes' that have nothing to do with any actual wrongdoing. Expose all the malfeasance of his enemies and bring this investigation to a merciful end.

A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. Elam, attack! Media, lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused.
(Isaiah 21:2)

3. Mark Meadows: Rod Rosenstein should go if he thinks being asked to do his job is 'extortion' - Washington Examiner

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., hit back at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after the No. 2 at the Justice Department said Tuesday his agency would not be extorted by threats of impeachment. "If he believes being asked to do his job is 'extortion,' then Rod Rosenstein should step aside and allow us to find a new Deputy Attorney General-preferably one who is interested in transparency," Meadows wrote on Twitter.

The Washington Post and The Hill reported Monday that a group of House Republicans led by Meadows had drafted eight articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. GOP lawmakers allege Rosenstein is hindering their efforts to obtain documents about FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, as well as documents that could show bias among top DOJ officials.

Rosenstein dismissed the drafted articles Tuesday , vowing to not bow under the pressure to resign and criticizing the anonymous manner in which the information was leaked. In a longer statement released by Meadows' office Tuesday, the Freedom Caucus chairman said Rosenstein would be mistaken to assume the lack of signatures affixed to the draft articles meant members of Congress are satisfied with his leadership. "Valid investigative requests from Congress have been slow-walked, stonewalled, and impeded at each step of the way under his watch," the statement reads."If Mr. Rosenstein's hesitance to produce documents and information to Congress represented an effort to save the Department of Justice from embarrassment, it is too late," it continues. (Read More)

Father, we pray for accountability at the Department of Justice, and for all requested documents be immediately turned over to Congress.

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. (Romans 2:1)

4. Republicans confirming Trump's court nominees at record pace - The Hill

Senate Republicans are poised to confirm more of President Trump's nominees to appeals courts next week, putting Trump on pace to have more of those nominees approved in the first two years of his tenure than any other recent president. It's the latest milestone for GOP senators who have worked frantically to confirm nominees to the key bench, where judges have played crucial roles in cases involving controversial issues like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and Trump's travel ban.

Republicans were already setting a record pace for circuit court picks, breaking a record in December for the most confirmed during a president's first year and confirming Trump's 15th appeals court nominee late last month. In addition to the 15 appeals court nominees already confirmed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has set up votes on six additional circuit court nominees for next week, when the chamber returns from a week-long recess. That will bring the total number of appeals court nominees confirmed for Trump up to 21.

The fast pace comes as Republicans have increasingly pointed to their ability to confirm Trump's nominees as a key reason they should keep control of the Senate heading into the midterm election. And unlike signature legislation - which GOP senators note Democrats could be quick to overturn once they are back in power - confirming Trump's judicial picks could shape the direction of the U.S. court system for decades. McConnell told Fox News late last month that confirming circuit court nominees is his "top priority." Democrats have bristled over the pace of the confirmation votes. With only a simple majority needed to confirm nominees, Trump's picks can clear the Senate without help from Democrats if most of the GOP caucus supports them. (Read More)

Father, we pray each of these nominees will be confirmed and serve our nation with integrity and distinction.

When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Proverbs 29:2)

5. Congress Seeks Showdown On Ending U.S. Aid to Palestinians - FreeBeacon

A delegation of leading Republican members of Congress are urging newly installed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to cut all U.S. taxpayer funding to the Palestinian government over its continued use of American dollars to pay the salaries of terrorists and their families, according to communications between these lawmakers and the State Department. A group of 14 lawmakers formally petitioned Pompeo this week to "immediately suspend all aid payments to the Palestinian Authority" due to recent reports these funds continue to be used to pay convicted terrorists and their families, a material breach of newly passed laws barring American aid money being used for such purposes.

The lawmakers seek a public showdown with the Trump administration over the future of U.S. aid to the Palestinian government, which has publicly refused to comply with new U.S. laws mandating the terror payment program known as "pay to slay" be stopped. While similar efforts to cut U.S. aid to the Palestinian government for its open support for terrorism have not gained traction under past administrations, the latest call is expected to gain steam as President Donald Trump executes a more hardline stance on Palestinian terrorists and their regional supporters, including Iran. (Read More)

Father, we pray the Palestinian government will be fully exposed as sponsoring terrorism, leading to a cutoff of funds from all nations, including the United States.

"Cursed is anyone who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" (Deuteronomy 27:25)

6. Sessions Announces Criminal Charges Against Suspected Caravan Members - FreeBeacon The Justice Department is acting quickly against suspected members of the so-called "caravan" of immigrants who allegedly illegally entered the country, escalating a showdown with immigration activists who are trying to rally support for Central American asylum-seekers aiming to gain entry to the United States at the San Diego border.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Monday night announced that the Justice Department has filed criminal charges against 11 different suspected members of the caravan, alleging that the immigrants illegally entered the country. "When respect for the rule of law diminishes, so too does our ability to protect our great nation, its borders and its citizens," Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. "The United States will not stand by as our immigration laws are ignored and our nation's safety is jeopardized." Sessions said U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California Adam Braverman should be commended for "quickly filing illegal entry charges for individuals apprehended along the southwestern border." (Read More)

Father, we pray our government will effectively protect our southern border and prevent illegal immigrants from abusing our immigration laws.

The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will exalt the law and make it honorable. (Isaiah 42:21)

7. Lawmakers call on Trump to cut off Planned Parenthood's Title X funding - Washington Times

Nearly 200 members of Congress and 100 state and national pro-life groups are calling on the Trump administration to take taxpayers out of the abortion business. The coalition sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on Monday asking him to cut off abortion providers from Title X dollars, which are earmarked for family planning services."For far too long the Title X Family Planning Program has been integrated with abortion centers," the letter read. "It is time to act swiftly to disentangle abortion centers from the Title X network. Doing so would be consistent with the President's pledge and subsequent actions to defund Planned Parenthood and reallocate funding to alternative providers."

The Reagan administration issued regulations preventing Title X recipients from engaging in abortion-related activities. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the rule in the 1991 Rust v. Sullivan decision. Planned Parenthood would stand to lose between $50 and $60 million annually if the rule were reinstated, said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. "The pro-life grassroots are furious with the inability of the Republican-controlled Congress to stop taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood," Ms. Dannenfelser said in a statement. "We urge the Trump administration to act swiftly to revise the Title X regulations, stopping the flow of Title X dollars to abortion centers." (Read More)

Father, continued funding of Planned Parenthood is a disgrace. Give President Trump and our leaders wisdom regarding the best ways to care for the most needy in our nation while cutting off funding for those who devalue life.

I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)

8. The Hill to end attendance at WHCA dinner without 'major reforms' - The Hill

The Hill said Tuesday it is pulling out of future White House Correspondents' dinners without "major reforms" to the event following the controversy that erupted over comedian Michelle Wolf's performance at this year's dinner on Saturday. "The Hill, which has participated in the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner for many years, does not plan at this time to participate in the event moving forward," James Finkelstein, The Hill's chairman, wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to Steven Thomma, executive director of the White House Correspondents' Association.

"In short, there's simply no reason for us to participate in something that casts our profession in a poor light. Major changes are needed to the annual event," the letter states. Finkelstein's letter criticized Wolf's performance as "out of line" and said that The Hill hoped the dinner could get "back to talking about the importance of the Fourth Estate without the kind of ugly sideshow that completely overshadowed the event this year." Complaints about the dinner have picked up under Trump, who has boycotted the event in his two years in office. (Read more)

Father, thank You for this recognition that the White House Correspondents' Dinner truly needs to change for journalists and news organizations to have any credibility. We pray this event will cause people in this industry to realize the need for reform and take action to implement it.

Drive out the mocker, and out goes strife; quarrels and insults are ended.
(Proverbs 22:10)

9. Conservative Leaders Coalesce To Cry Foul Over Social Media Censorship - Daily Caller

More than 60 conservative leaders, some more prominent than others, published a joint statement Tuesday arguing big tech companies need to do more to ensure people aren't being unduly silenced for their ideological viewpoints."Social media censorship and online restriction of conservatives and their organizations have reached a crisis level," the message reads. "Conservative leaders now have banded together to call for equal treatment on tech and social media."

Signees of the missive include: Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith, who is also chair of the Media Fairness Caucus; Young America's Foundation President Ron Robinson; Retired Army Lt. Col. and former Republican congressman Allen West; president of the Heartland Institute and former House representative Tim Huelskamp; Penny Young Nance of Concerned Women for America, and several past higher-ups in former President Ronald Reagan's administration.

Facebook prematurely launched a new feature Tuesday that aims to combat hate speech. The rollout was due to a bug, a spokeswoman at the company told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Yet it showed an increased appetite, perhaps due to intensified public pressure, to do something about vitriolic and potentially racist content found on the platform. But as evident from the statement, there is also an insistence to stop moderating content as much as it has been because large portions of the public - mainly conservatives and libertarians - feel as if they are being unfairly singled out. (Read More)

Father, we pray our freedom of expression will be respected by these large social media companies and by the government.

Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord-that you alone are the Most High over all the earth. (Psalm 83:18)

10. Homeschoolers Celebrate Victory Over Outrageous Homeschooling Bill - CNS News

They came by the hundreds, one newspaper said - "perhaps thousands." Some traveled hours, others waited hours, all for the opportunity to protest one of the most outrageous homeschooling bills every introduced: California's AB 2756.

Spilling out into crammed hallways and overflow rooms, families poured into the statehouse just for the opportunity to spend a few minutes speaking out on a measure that would give the government more power over parents who educate at home. Initially, the bill tried to mandate fire inspections of all homeschooling families (which, not surprisingly, firefighters rejected). Then the proposal was amended - this time to force homeschooling families to give out private information about the names and address of homeschooling families.

Liberals used a nightmarish story to prop up their argument, insisting that the case of the Turpins, parents who used homeschooling as an excuse to torture and starve their kids, meant that greater oversight was necessary. Conservatives fired back. Committee member Kevin Kiley (R) said that using the Turpin family to create law was not good policy. "That is an extreme outlier case. Any data set will have extreme outlier cases." Nearly 1,000 people spoke out in opposition, reporters said, including a candidate for governor, Assemblyman Travis Allen (R). "AB 2756 is absolutely wrong. It must fail. It must fail today," he said. "California's parents and children have the right to the very best education this state can possibly provide."

The line of opponents waiting to testify snaked around the building, many, one outlet pointed out, "with small children in tow." By afternoon's end, only two people from the surrounding area spoke in support of the controversial bill. Hours later, families got the news they'd been waiting for "no member of the committee was willing to make a motion for a vote." The bill was dead. Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, cheered the outpouring of parents from around the state. "All is not lost in California," he said. "When we stand together, we can still make a difference." (Read More)

Thank You, Holy Father, for this victory! We pray Your remnant people in California will be energized to continue to fight for their freedom, their communities and their families. Bless them with continued favor and victory!

For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
(Psalm 149:4)

The whirling winds of prophecy

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

The prophets of the Bible speak of a day when the traditional enemies of Israel will come against the country "like a cloud to cover the land (Ezekiel 38:9, 16)" and God will rebuke the nations that rush against Israel "like a rolling thing before the whirlwind (Isaiah 17:13, 41:16)." Revelation 13:7 speaks of the beast, "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them." These are end time prophecies that indicate there will be nations led by the beast (Gog, the Assyrian, King of the North, the prince that shall come, little horn, etc.), against Israel. The world political stage elevating Islam in the recent decade has emboldened these players as the whirling winds of prophecy are forming up.

Gog of Magog (Turkey), chief prince of Meshech (Turkey) and Tubal (Turkey) leads Persia (Iran), Libya, Ethiopia (Sudan), Gomer (Turkey), Togarmah (Turkey), Sheba (Saudi Arabia) and Dedan (Saudi Arabia) against Israel to "take a spoil and to take a prey (Ezekiel 38:12)." This coalition originates and is led from areas which are currently in Turkey. Turkey is becoming increasingly radical. The Gatestone Institute reports that at an April 11 event to unveil the 2017 European Islamophobia Report, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called on European governments to criminalize criticism of Islam as "a hate crime and a form of racism." In essence, If adopted in Europe, Jews and Christians could be killed or incarcerated for their belief in the Bible, as they are in many Islamic nations today.

The leader of the terrorist-backed Palestinian Liberation Organization/Palestinian Authority singled out Jews as the cause of growing anti-Semitism in Europe. AP reports "In rambling remarks that were part of a lengthy speech to the PLO parliament on Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was the Jews' "social function," including money-lending, that caused animosity toward them in Europe, citing what he said were books by Jewish authors. He also portrayed the creation of Israel as a European colonial project, saying "history tells us there is no basis for the Jewish homeland." His remarks prompted an immediate response from the US Ambassador to Israel, "To all those who think Israel is the reason that we don't have peace, think again."

These are just two examples of what is happening around the Middle East to influence Europe (the West) against Jews and Christians. They are stirring up trouble and trying to establish a narrative that is friendly to the end time beast system and diabolically against Jews, Christians, and Israel. Interestingly enough, the very countries that are listed as coming against Israel are part and parcel to this stirring. Turkey's leaders are very vocal about those who resist Islam. Also remember that Turkey and Iran both are ardent supporters of the "Palestinian" movement to divide the land of Israel and to drive the Jews into the sea. These two events, while seemingly unrelated, are part of the whirling winds of prophecy.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
Bill Wilson

We have now completed the reading of the Whole Word of God, from Genesis to Revelation . . . 36 times! We praise God for the literal hundreds who have joined us over the past year and a half to accomplish this feat, and we know that our Lord must be deeply pleased to have heard His Word read back to Him . . . 36 times.

Abba shared with us that we have now entered a NEW SEASON in our readings . . . one that would include a "seventh day rest" for the people of God.

And so, beginning this week, our Readathon WILL continue (as above) for SIX DAYS, but will be suspended on Sunday mornings, 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., that we might rest before Him and dwell in His presence, abiding even more deeply in Him.

We welcome you back every Monday night through Saturday morning, and then we wish you . . . shalom!
