Shalom dear intercessors and friends of Israel. 

His Dwelling Place

In July we had some uprisings by the enemy of
our souls, as we saw in the news: terrorist attacks and conflicts at the Temple
Mount beside attacks on Jewish homes in the West Bank.
“For
the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place: “This  is My resting place forever; Here I will
dwell, for I have desired it.”
Our God is Spirit and dwells wherever He wants:
in the Heavens, in our hearts and in JERUSALEM!
“Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.”
He chose that place to reign through his son,
our Mashiach!
Knowing this, the enemy tries to steal His
place:
“How
you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down
to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I
will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the
north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most
High.’”
We can’t be apathetic seeing the enemy profane
the dwelling place chosen by YHWH. We must be zealous for his Word and have dominium
with the direction of his Spirit.
“Then
David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, “What shall be done for the
man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who
is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living
God?””
David was zealous over the people of Israel and
also over His land, the dwelling place of the most high.
“Your  Dwelling Place”
“I will not
give rest to my eyes
I will not rest my
eyelids
Till find a place
for you Jesus
I will enter the
sanctuary
And I will climb up
on your holy mountain
Till find a place
Prepared for you
COME MAKE YOUR
DWELLING PLACE, MAKE YOUR DWELLING PLACE AMONG US
One thing I ask the
Lord
And will seek, and
will seek
That I can live in
your House
Every day of my
life
I found, I found
Your altars Lord
and my God

Bein Hametzarim-Between the Straits

The
11th of July and 1st of August represents the first and last days of three
weeks
of lament, anguish, tribulation, Strait in Israel, recalling
the destruction of the walls of Jerusalem (17 of the 4th month this
year on 11th of July) by Nebuchadnezzar (586 BC – 2 Kings 25.3-4; Jeremiah 39.2 ;  52.6-7 ) and by the Romans,
six centuries later (70 dC), both culminating in the destruction of the two
sacred temples or Batei HaMikdashim, in Jerusalem ( 9 of the 5th
month- Tisha B’Av – 9th day of the month of Av or fifth month this year
in August 01).
The
direct consequence of the destruction of the temples was the destruction of
Jewish life in Israel. Those days are recalled with fasting (the 4th and 5th
months).
“I
called on the LORD in distress; The LORD answered me and  set me in a broad place. The LORD  is on my side; I will not fear. What can man
do to me? The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see
my  desire on those who hate me. It  is better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence
in man. It  is better to trust in the
LORD Than to put confidence in princes. All nations surrounded me, But in the
name of the LORD I will destroy them. They surrounded me, Yes, they surrounded
me; But in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. They surrounded me like
bees; They were quenched like a fire of thorns; For in the name of the LORD I
will destroy them. You pushed me violently, that I might fall, But the LORD
helped me. The LORD  is my strength and
song, And He has become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation Is
in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly. The
right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly. I
shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD.”
In times like these it is always good to be in
more constant vigil and prayer.
BUT, as always, our beloved Father gives us a
promise of hope:
““Thus
says the LORD of hosts: ‘The fast of the fourth month, The fast of the fifth,
The fast of the seventh, And the fast of the tenth, Shall be joy and gladness
and cheerful feasts For the house of Judah.Therefore love truth and
peace.’”
Let us declare this Word over the House of Israel,
so there will no more be sorrow, but life and joy in the Beloved Mashiach
Yeshua!
The place in God

Something that the Lord ministered us this month
was about the importance and the need of positioning and persisting.
In many areas of our lives we start projects
that we believe have been guided by God.
We begin
with a lot of enthusiasm and expectation, but over the days and months in the
middle of the journey, the enemy comes with its subtleties try to steal our
calling and we get discourage.
He attacks us in our emotions and we make
decisions based on circumstances and feelings.
Suddenly we are departing, we look and listen to
men, their opinions and we deviate from His Word.
We must always return to the feet (and lap) of
the one who loves us, who leads and take care of us.
If we hear His voice we will realign to His
purpose, repositioning ourselves in the place he placed us, regardless of
anything.
In this way, soon we will see His faithfulness
changing circumstances, but all because we were faithful in running to the
author of life, to our Shepherd.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
Thank you Lord for teaching us every day.
