2018 - 5779   High Holy Days


Sunday Sept 9 (Sundown) – Sunday Sep 30


WELCOME


I extend a warm welcome to everyone joining us for the seventeenth Jewish Prayer Focus, which will be the final printed version as we look at other ways to communicate the information and reach the next generation. 2018 is another significant year. On April 19 and May 14 we celebrated Israel’s 70th birthday in the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars and the US Embassy move to Jerusalem. On September 19, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the final breakthrough of World War 1 in the Middle East which liberated northern Israel, Jordan and Syria, without which the Balfour declaration would have been empty words. This final ‘great race’ culminated with the Armistice enacted exactly a year after the Beersheba charge, opening the way for the return of the Jews and the re-formation of Israel as a modern nation.


God has a mighty plan for this planet which involves not only the salvation of individuals but also the salvation of nations. Israel is a key, as God will once again bare His holy arm to deliver the people from destruction and draw them to Himself as He did at Mt Sinai. This time, He will write the law on their hearts, not on stone (Jer 31:33-34), and a remnant from the nations will come to worship Him as King in Jerusalem (Zech 14:9,16). As the world turns against Israel, God is calling His children to stand with her and work with Him to see His purposes accomplished and the One New Man emerge (Eph 2:13-16). His kingdom is expanding via the Jewish, Christian and Arab congregations across Israel.



The Feast Calendar and Timing


The appointed times given by God in Leviticus 23 prophetically show us God’s grand redemptive plan for all humanity. The first four feasts occur in the springtime. Jesus fulfilled the first three festivals at Passover (I Cor 5:7), and the fourth at Pentecost (Acts 2), all on the EXACT DAY in this Biblical calendar. This indicates the importance of this calendar.


The Jewish Prayer Focus prayer time is aligned with the last three feasts which occur in the autumn/fall season. These have not yet been fulfilled, but prophetically speak of the Messiah’s return in the end times: to gather His church, to judge the nations, to save Israel and to rule the nations as the Prince of Peace. These feasts lead us through repentance and reconciliation, personally and nationally, to thankfulness for His provision, and rejoicing in His presence. We, the intercessors in the nations, stand together with Israel as Jew and Gentile, one in Messiah (Eph 2:14-16), sharing His appointed times, and looking towards Yeshua’s final fulfilment of these prophetic festivals.

David Ben-Gurion said, ‘In Israel, in order to be a realist you have to believe in miracles.’ Israel is a miracle – firstly of preservation. The Jewish people have survived, against all odds, scattered throughout the world for 2,000 years. No other nation still exists after being exiled for so long.
