Israel and the Nations — An Intertwined Destiny
“I have posted watchmen [Shomrim] on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.”
If there’s anything this past year has showed us, it is that we cannot ignore what is happening all around the world. We have to be alert and acknowledge the times we’re living in.
Too many things have happened and are happening for us to ignore the fact that things are shifting and times are changing, and we have to be prepared for what is ahead.
We also acknowledge our God given power to impact and cause things to shift by the sheer power of prayer!
There’s so much turmoil currently all across the world, nations are being shaken by both global and internal crisis. Seeing images from around the globe, there’s one thing that is certain: we need to take up our calling as Shomrim (watchmen) and become the prayer guardians.
Israel is currently facing its biggest crisis yet; both in leadership, economical and social. This nation has never been so divided and without direction. This is the time this nation truly needs God more than ever.
If there’s one thing the Bible makes very clear; is that there is everything starts and ends with Israel — because this is the nation God chose. If Israel is submerged in darkness, as it is now, the world cannot see light. Israel’s destiny is tightly intertwined with the nations’ destiny. You cannot superarte the two.
Which is why God calls us all to become Shomrim — Prayer Watchmen – and not keep silent, not giving God rest until He establishes Israel and Jerusalem, so that the whole world can see the fulfillment of prophecies given thousands of years ago.
We invite you to join our new prayer movement: “Shomrim”, and become the watchmen God called us to be on the walls of this nations, and pray that as God establishes His order in His nation, as a result that order will be established in your nation as well.
We will be sending out very special and specific prayer updates every week, with some encouraging words from Pastors, as well as some insight into what is happening in Israel and local congregations and ministries that are working among Israelis — such as Beit Hallel.
Sign up here to get your weekly Shomrim prayer update.
The time is now!
Much love and blessings,
Pastor Israel Pochtar
