Weekly Watch Focus: Bind the Rise of Antisemitism

FRIDAY, May 4, 2018—In recent days, we have seen an alarming rise of anti-semitism in Europe and even America. The targeting of Jewish people and institutions has been exacerbated, some believe, by the wave of immigrants coming from the Middle East. In France, holocaust survivor Mireille Knoll was murdered in her home by her neighbor. In Germany, Jewish leaders are discouraging followers from wearing kippahs in public because of violent attacks. In New York, an orthodox Jewish man on his way home from Shabbat services was brutally assaulted, the second such attack in recent months.

Bind the demonic spirit of anti-semitism which is repugnant to the heart of God and brings a curse on a people and nation. The Bible clearly tells us “Salvation is of the Jews” (John 4:22).  We owe so much to the Jewish people from whom comes the Bible, the apostles, and our Savior. Our values originate in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who promises that those who bless Israel will be blessed (Genesis 12:3). Those who curse Israel will suffer God’s curse. Those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem will prosper (Psalm 122:6). We hunger for God’s blessings over us, our children, and our nation.
Release blessings on Israel and pray for peace of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israeli Defense Forces. Pray for President Trump and his administration who have promoted the move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. Pray that our nation continue strengthening ties with Israel and those who are allied with her. May God put a shield of protection over Israel and all those who bless her.

Exodus 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.’”

Genesis 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.”

Psalm 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.”

Psalm 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.'”
 
Isaiah 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.”
 
Zechariah 14:8-16, Psalm 91
