Eitan Shishkoff - Calling on the Lord Together in Zion
 
 
"'Baruch HaBa 2012' will be an experience in the Land of Israel, with the people of Israel, that will equip you to take an active role in bringing the Messiah Yeshua back to this earth, to finally rule and reign in true righteousness. That may sound presumptuous, but the Word of the Lord assigns us this privilege as 'midwives' for the birth of His Kingdom on this earth."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"We are planning as an intercessory tour of Israel and an equipping conference for March 7-15, 2012. We heartily invite you to join us for 9 Spirit-enlivened days. Please pray, asking God if this is your appointed time to go up to Zion, to the mountain of the Lord (Isaiah 2:3)."
 
 

What in the world is happening? The occurrence one right after the other of natural disasters, national revolutions and continued terrorism is too much to ignore. Yeshua said that these things would happen. In Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13 His description underscores the destabilization of the world as His return approaches. How relevant then, was His conclusion. "When you see these things happening, life up your heads, your redemption is drawing near" (Luke 21:28).

Clearly, we are not to freak out with fear and discouragement, but rather take up our positions to "hasten the day of His coming" (2 Peter 3:12). One way to do that is to give our energies and faith to strengthening the nation of Israel and especially the local, indigenous Jewish believers in Yeshua. In fact, the Lord speaks of them (us!), quoting Messianic Psalm 118, in a key prelude to teaching on the End Times. "You will not see me again, until you say 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord (Baruch haBa b'Shem Adonai)'" (Matthew 23:39).

Our closely related ministries - Revive Israel, Tents of Mercy and Tikkun International - believe that one of the central keys to this end-times revival in Israel is the covenant partnership between Jesus' Jewish and Gentile followers. Over the past five years, we have experienced the deepening of this friendship through four gatherings of 9-10 days, in which we traveled through Israel worshiping, praying, learning and fellowshipping together. Our last such event saw men and women from 19 nations come together with their Israeli brothers and sisters. It was unforgettable. That was in October, 2010. Yet world conditions and prophetic events have undeniably been accelerating in the short time since then. Therefore we are convinced that it is important to gather again in 2012. We are planning as an intercessory tour of Israel and an equipping conference for March 7-15, 2012.

"Baruch HaBa 2012" will be an experience in the Land of Israel, with the people of Israel, that will equip you to take an active role in bringing the Messiah Yeshua back to this earth, to finally rule and reign in true righteousness. That may sound presumptuous, but the Word of the Lord assigns us this privilege as "midwives" for the birth of His Kingdom on this earth. Our role is not one of passive observation, but of active participation.

With that in mind, I want to issue a personal invitation, together with my treasured colleagues, Asher Intrater (Revive Israel) and Daniel Juster (Tikkun International), and with our congregational leaders, Eddie Santoro (Ahavat Yeshua, Jerusalem), Avishalom Teklehaimanot (Ohalei Rachamim, Kiryat Yam), Leon Mazin (Shavei Tzion, Haifa & Netzer HaGalil, Upper Nazareth) and Guy Cohen (Katzir Asher, Akko). We heartily invite you to join us for 9 Spirit-enlivened days. Please pray, asking God if this is your appointed time to go up to Zion, to the mountain of the Lord (Isaiah 2:3). There we will call out together, Jewish and Gentile lovers of Messiah, giving prophetic praise and welcome to Israel's King, Yeshua, using the words of proclamation He has given us: "Baruch HaBa, B'Shem Adonai," from March 7-15, 2012.

2 Peter 3 also says, The heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, for the day of judgement and destruction of ungodly men ... The Lord is patient toward you not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. The day of the Lord will come like a thief in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat and the earth and its works burn up. SINCE ALL THESE THINGS ARE TO BE DESTROYED IN THIS WAY, WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE OUGHT YOU TO BE IN HOLY CONDUCT AND GODLINESS LOOKING FOR AND HASTENING THE COMING OF THE DAY OF GOD.
I sit this morning convicted and saddened because I was not patient yesterday.
I do not know about prayer summits, but this passage scares me to death. For as much as I long for Yeshua's coming I know His coming means there are those I love who will perish if it were today. What I need more than anything is the power of His Spirit to walk in holy conduct and godliness before Him. I sometimes wonder if He is really waiting for the people of God to walk in holy conduct and holiness ... with patience! ... so that in this way many more will come to repentance. It gives me great pause and I cry woe is me I am undone. My only prayer is to utter: Baruch Ha Ba B'Shem Yeshua in my own holy conduct and godliness. I am very grateful for Yehovah's great love and patience. Thank you for leading me to this passage of scripture. It has led me to repentance.

Israel needs more than ever now intercessors in prayer - for the peace of Jerusalem, the protection of Israel, and for more and more of God's chosen people to come and kneel before the cross of Yeshua in penitence, in awe, and in overwhelming joy.
