Weekly Watch Focus: Bless Israel—Bind the Rise of Anti-Semitism

Friday, Jan. 30, 2015, This week marked the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz. Once again, in recent days, we have seen an alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and in certain institutions in America such as our university system and even our government. Some see disturbing similarities to what occurred just before the Second World War and the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany. The hate for Israel and persecution of the Jews is often disguised as battling for the rights of Palestinians.
Our values originate in the Word of God. The Bible clearly affirms that those who bless Israel will be blessed (Gen. 12:3). Those who curse Israel will suffer God’s curse. Those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem will prosper (Ps. 122:6). We hunger for God’s blessings over us, our children, and our nation. 

During our days of corporate fasting and prayer, let us once again release blessings on Israel and pray for peace over an undivided Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu  and the Israeli Defense Forces. At the same time, pray that our government will bless rather than curse Israel. Let us also pray for the U.S. armed forces  who  help protect our freedoms as well as their families. 
May God put a shield of protection over Israel and all those who bless her. May the God of Israel especially confuse her enemies and render the plans of all terrorist forces of no effect.

Exod. 15:16-18, “Fear and dread will fall on them; by the greatness of Your arm they will be as still as a stone, till Your people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over whom You have purchased. You will bring them in and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which You have made for Your own dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established. ‘The Lord shall reign forever and ever.’”

Gen. 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Ps. 83: 1-18, “Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no  more’… O my God, make them like the whirling dust, like the chaff before the wind! As the fire burns the woods, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire, so pursue them with Your tempest, and frighten them with Your storm. Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Your name, O Lord. Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish, that they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.”

Ps. 102:13, “You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come.”  

Psalm 122:6, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: 'May they proper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.'”

Is. 62:6-7, “I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” 

Zech. 14:8-16, Ps. 91
