Jerusalem of Gold

By Asher Intrater

This morning I went out early to pray. The skyline of Jerusalem was to my right and the sun was beginning to rise to my left. The angle was just right so that the predawn rays of the sun reflected off the buildings, which seemed to shine with a golden light. The light did not originate in the buildings but came from the sun.

In Scripture, the sun represents the light in the face of Yeshua when He returns in glory (Matthew 17:2, 25:31, Revelation 1:16, 19:11).  Jerusalem of today is the earthly pattern of Jerusalem of above.

Revelation 21:10-11, 23
…the great city, the holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone…
The city had no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it.

What I saw seemed to be a parable of what is to come, when heavenly Jerusalem will descend and God's glory will fill this city—and the whole world.


Tabernacle of David

By Mike Bickle, excerpt

In 750 BC, Amos prophesied of the restoration of David’s tabernacle.

On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old. (Amos 9:11)

The tabernacle of David speaks of the governmental center of earth that operates with a spirit of worship and prayer. It consists of both a worship order and a governmental authority.  It has a national expression in Israel and an international expression through the body of Christ.

The tabernacle of David has at least seven expressions to it that are deeply connected:

  1. Spiritual — the body of Christ in prophetic worship  (1 Chr. 16:1-4, 37).
  2. Political — God’s righteous government in the nations(Isa. 16:5).
  3. Messianic —a believing remnant in the restored land and state (Amos 9:14-15).
  4. Missional impacting all nations with the gospel of the kingdom (Amos 9:12).
  5. Transformational — grace to restore cities and the agriculture (Amos 9:13-14).
  6. Supernatural — release of God’s power, glory and miracles (Ps. 145:11–12).
  7. Eschatological —Jesus received in Jerusalem as King over all nations.

It is expressed through the international church in every tribe and tongue of the earth. It is expressed through the messianic remnant in the restored land and state of Israel.  It connects three dimensions—the praying Church, the Messianic movement, and the State of Israel.

It is manifest in part in this age (as it continually increases) and in fullness in the Millennium. The full restoration of the tabernacle of David occurs only after Jesus returns to rule all nations from the throne of David in Jerusalem.


Possibility and Power

By Greta Mavro

The Greek word for power is dunamis and the word for possible is dunato. Possibility and power are linked together in God. 

Mathew 19:26 - With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

In Greek, this can read: By men this is (a-dunaton) – without the power and ability, but by God all things are (dunata) - empowered and able. The impossible (adunato) becomes possible (dunato) with God.  God is panto-dunamos - omnipotent or all powerful. 

Acts 1:8 - You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.

The Holy Spirit brings to us the dunamis of God.

Mark 9:23 - All things are possible to him who believes.

Through faith, all things become (dunata) possible to us. Our faith plugged into God's dunamis makes the impossible possible. 


Peres Birthday

By Jackie Santoro

Thousands of people gathered Tuesday evening in the National Convention Center to celebrate the 90th birthday of Shimon Peres, the President of Israel.  In 1934, the 11 year old Peres left his native Belarus to join his father in the new city of Tel Aviv. All of his family that remained behind were murdered by the Nazis. Throughout the decades, he has tirelessly served to establish and build up this nation. Many celebrities attended, including Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, and Barbara Streisand.  The audience rose for a standing ovation as Streisand sang "Avinu Malkeinu" (Our Father, our King) in Hebrew.  Although many do not agree with his policies, it was a wonderful experience to see this nation come together to honor one of its founding fathers. 


Natural Gas

Prime Minister Netanyahu led business and government leaders to an agreement that the enormous resource of natural gas found off the shores of Israel will be allocated as 60% domestic and 40% for export.  This arrangement promises to supply Israel with natural gas for the next 25 years, as well as to provide increased revenues for the Israeli economy.


Israel-China Kingdom Destiny

By Ariel Blumenthal

What would happen if leaders from the Israeli “remnant” got together with leaders and intercessors from the Mainland Chinese churches for 4 days of worship, prayer, and teaching?  Well, we are going to find out!  Asher Intrater, Ari Sorkoram, and I will join 500 Chinese for this jointly organized conference next week, June 24 – 28 in Hong Kong.   Please join us in prayer for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:17-18); for a revelation of the mysteries of the End Times (Romans 11:25-26); and for a declaration of the wisdom of God to the principalities and powers as the One New Man (Ephesians 2:14-3:11).
