Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke this week in the United States Congress warning of the danger of Iran's current regime obtaining nuclear weapons. The speech lasted 45 minutes, had 107 mentions of Iran, was interrupted 36 times by applause, 23 times accompanied with standing ovations (Yediot, 4-3). Netanyahu referred to the Bible twice: once comparing the current situation with the book of Esther (amazingly the speech took place on the eve of Purim); and the other referring to Moses telling the people of Israel to be strong and courageous.
When God makes a new covenant, it can never violate a previous covenant. Why is the Messianic covenant given through Judah? Why is the gospel supposed to go to the Jew first? In this message Asher answers these questions and others as he teaches about God's covenant logic and order. To watch in English, click HERE!

In a couple weeks Israelis will go to the polls to elect another new government. Unlike Americans, Israelis vote for a political party and not for a candidate. The many political parties that are vying for the votes of the Israeli electorate go from the extreme left to the extreme right of the political spectrum. The Zionist Union which represents the left is in a tie with Likud which represents the right and the continuation of Netanyahu as Prime Minister.
Although many Israelis see the economy as the primary voting issue, the question of the future of the West Bank, the possible creation of a Palestinian State and the division of Jerusalem will be deeply impacted by the results of this election.
What about the Palestinians?
There is no easy answer. If Israel's citizens elect a right wing government with Netanyahu as Prime Minister, the government will continue to demand conditions that will protect Israel but be difficult for the Palestinian Authority to accept. This perceived “intransigence” by Israel will probably result in an intensifying wave of anti-Semitism, international boycotts and world isolation.
If Israel's voters choose the Zionist Union block which could move the nation towards a policy of submitting to world pressure and the creation of a Palestinian State, then there will be likelihood of the Gaza War being played out again but on a much larger scale. Although a demilitarized state is one of the primary conditions for a future Palestine, Israel's ability to prevent the smuggling of large and advanced weapons would be all but impossible.
Please join us in praying for God's supernatural involvement in the coming elections that will be held on March 17th.
Thank you to everyone who joined us this week for the Esther Fast. Next week we will share more in depth about the event.
You Shall Love
