Morning Chapel Prayer Playlist

Pastor Jim…

Well, good morning, everybody. Happy Tuesday. Welcome to Staff Prayer. Happy you guys came today.

Set a watchman upon your walls…

It’s going to be a little bit different type of prayer today. I want to start with Isaiah 62:6. It says on the Amplified classic. “I’ve set a watchman upon your walls, old Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace, day or night.” That’s us in the spirit. “You who are his servants and by your prayers today put the Lord in remembrance of His promises.” It’s not because He doesn’t remember. It’s because He wants them spoken. We’re going to speak a lot of these things today. Keep not silent and give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her a praise in the earth.

Prayer for Israel daily…

Even though I say a few words for Israel every day in my personal prayer life, I look at that as more of a chore. And so anytime that I do that… I’m just being straight with you. It’s like, “Well look what all that’s going on here in this country.” And you want to go at what’s going on here a lot of times, right? Because you know that they’re God’s people too, but it does nothing but help you.

The Bible is very clear that if you pray for Israel, you will be blessed. And you’re going to hear some facts here because you guys are… But you guys are here to pray. A lot of you are here every day or two or three times. I know that you go home and you do stuff. So you take what you hear home and use this. Because if you have facts, then you can pray specifics. And I’m not saying general prayers don’t work when you don’t have the facts. But when you have the facts, you can go so much deeper and the Holy Spirit can lead you even more.

An answer to prayer…

And I just want to be clear. It is an answer to prayer. And I have to say just about every time I hear Pastor Ken pray, he at least touches Israel. And it is an answer to prayer… I was on the phone with a friend of mine in Israel. He had just lost his best friend who had 10 confirmed kills before they shot him down. And he said, “Jim, I know that you have issues with your administration.” But he said, “I have tears in my eyes when I say this. The American military is landing planes full of ammunition every minute at Ben Gurion Airport. That’s what we need. We need ammunition.”

They have a reserve army of 300,000. Their regular army is probably… they have half a million soldiers. They’ve fought wars on two fronts. And one, it’s about the ammunition. Prayers. And some reason, somehow, the Biden administration, who is pushing for a two state… they want two countries out of Israel. So you just gave six billion dollars to Iran. But yet they’re doing everything they can do to give them every supply that they need. And he said, “Jim, that just brings tears to my eyes. I can see the jets landing every minute.” And so that’s answered prayer because you would never think that… that we would do that right now because of where our government is. That’s from praying… the few people out there that pray for Biden… Seriously, because that is not their MO and normally politically, if you follow it.

And so, I was in those very towns that Hamas took over. They’re overran. Down there in Gaza, we are looking at two walls. This is in March. With John and Diana Hagee, and they took like 15 rabbis and 15 pastors. And these walls are huge, separating Israel from Gaza. And there’s two of them. Giant. You’re just like, they could never get  through this. They have towers on these walls spaced out. They’re not even manned by soldiers. These towers have high caliber machine guns looking into Gaza. Female soldiers are about a thousand yards back operating these machine guns by computer and with cameras. And it’s females because they’re better at it. They’ve proven that. They’re all females that are operating these guns, but they’re a thousand yards back. So they’re not even on the wall. But they can see everything. They’ve got weapons on the wall. And you’re just like… Then there’s another wall that they have to get over before they can get into these settlements. And so I remember being down there saying this will never happen. This would be impossible.

And they came by air, where they landed in troops, and then obviously got out of there quick. And they came by sea. And they took bulldozers, and they just went right through those walls.

You need to know this if you’re going to pray…

If you’re going to pray, then you need to know what’s going on. Can we put up the map? See this little purple thing down here is the Gaza Strip. That’s what George Bush gave them in a land-for-peace deal. What kind of peace we got now, huh? That’s what he gave them. That’s the Gaza Strip. So you have these little settlements. We were lectured by these people in these settlements that were just overrun in the spring. But you see the West Bank, that’s what they want to give up. They want Israel to turn that into a country. Can you imagine giving up that much? Their nation could be cut in half and in 20 miles. And so they can’t give that up. But they were made to give up the Gaza Strip. That’s what’s going on. But I want to point out this is much bigger than this. The threat is in Lebanon and Syria. The big threat. And so really, pray-ers, they’re holding their breath. It’s like everybody’s holding their breath because I just want… down here, they’ve put Gaza in a siege. They’ve surrounded it. They can’t get food. They can’t get water. They can’t get ammunition. And that’s just what you do in a military situation like that.

But Lebanon in the north and Syria… The Golan Heights. We’re up there looking into Syria, every trip to Israel, Hezbollah is in Lebanon, Hamas is the Gaza Strip, mostly. There’s some Hamas up in Lebanon. They don’t even believe the same. These Muslims have been killing each other for thousands of years. And so they’ve come together. Hezbollah and Hamas, they kill each other. And so they’ve come together all funded by Iran who is in Syria. Hezbollah is a proxy army of Iran, highly trained… 16,000 Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip, estimated by Israeli intelligence.

Down in the Gaza Strip, they have 30,000 short, midrange, and long-range rockets. Alright, 30,000. They launched 1,000 the other night. And then at the same time, they hit them from the ground. And they’ve launched 4,400 rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip since George Bush said we’ll give you land if you’ll give us peace. So in 15 years, 4,400 rockets, that’s 300 rockets a year. Well, the other night, they just got 1,000 from the Gaza Strip, which they gave control. They had control. It was a beautiful place. It was one of the most productive places to farm in Israel. It was amazing. It was beautiful. And so that’s just in the south with Palestinians and Hamas who is funded by Iran.

And so in Syria, you had the Russians and the US during that civil war, but that’s when Iran came in and they immediately brought 8,000 troops, regular Iranian infantry in Syria. And they brought another 10,000 of their highly trained Republican Guard right away. And they’ve been in there ever since. They brought in a militia from Afghanistan, Iranian backed, called Fatah Mayon. They brought them in immediately. They brought in another militia out of Pakistan that I can’t even pronounce. Highly trained. These people live their lives killing people and fighting. That’s all they’ve ever done is fight. And they even had groups that have been fighting in Iraq. They brought them over to Syria. They started converting Syrians to Shiite. All Syrian men that became Shiites… They took them back to Iran, trained them for two months, put them through a boot camp, equipped them and sent them by the thousands back into Syria to fight for Iran.

And so they’ve been doing this all along. The Israelis realized that suddenly these groups are armed in Syria with missiles with a range of 500 miles. Precision guided. And so what I’m trying to get across is these aren’t just a bunch of dudes running around with machine guns and knives. This is real war with very well trained, well led armies. And you heard some of this on the Final Hour podcast in March after I got back. But this is just Syria. I mean these groups have been outfitted by the Iranians and are also armed with some of the best anti-aircraft warfare systems in the world. That means they can shoot down jets. And they also have an army of unmanned aerial vehicles, weaponized, that are drones. They are trained to operate these anti-aircraft systems, precision guided missile systems, and drones.

So if you just add it up… thirty thousand rockets in the Gaza pointed at them. They only got a thousand of them the other night. Which was traumatic. But here’s the thing. In Lebanon, Hamas has an army of 50,000 well-trained troops… 7,000 of them are right on the border. Hezbollah in Lebanon is considered a top 10 artillery in the world. They have 140,000 short midrange and long-range rockets put into Israel. On top of that, many other things.

And so, that’s Lebanon. Add it all up, 30,000 short range, midrange, long-range rockets in Gaza down in the south… 140,000 rockets in Lebanon with the Hezbollah army of 50,000 troops. Could we put the picture of him up? That picture of that guy? We were up on the border with the Hagees, and it’s this in your face. We get off the bus and they’re taking pictures. They’re standing on the other side over there, just taking pictures. This is the Lebanese border. It’s Hezbollah right there.

And they’re just looking at each other and there’s stuff that goes on every single day that you don’t see in the news and he’s taking pictures of us and we’re taking pictures of him and that’s just a normal thing. If he could kill you, he would kill you.

And so they don’t even know the numbers in Syria as far as artillery and mortar rounds and things like that. But the point is, this is not a primitive bunch of guys. And Iran is behind the whole thing… their finances, the whole thing. And so these are advanced, highly trained soldiers. My mom’s identical twin who went home to be with the Lord, her name was Lucy McKee. The last sermon that she ever preached, I was there, it was in Branson. It was on Psalm 83. It was the last one. As a matter of fact, she couldn’t even talk. She was so sick with cancer. She couldn’t talk and she’s up in that pulpit and so she’s communicating with my mom. And then my mom would preach it out. That was the last sermon that she ever did at Branson.

But she was prophesying this… And Psalm 83 is a war. Billye Brim, my mom, my mom’s late twin sister, believed this will take place before Ezekiel 38. And so, but it’s only Islam attacking Israel in this war. It’s very clear. You’ll see when we look at Psalm 83. Because Psalm 83 is also a prayer. It’s not just a prophecy, it’s a prayer. We need to declare things about the Israelis just like it said.

This is an attack. Psalm 83 is an attack of Muslim nations on Israel. Does this lead to Ezekiel 38? We do not know. We don’t even know if this is Psalm 83 war yet. But the prayer we’re about to pray is effective and is meant for this type of situation.

This is from another guy, ex-military, probably ex Mossad friend of mine. He says a 70-year-old lady friend, neighbor of mine was killed this morning from a rocket. I took my son and two other soldiers this morning back to base. We’re instructed to be armed inside our homes for several hours. Think about that, living that kind of life, where your government says, “Get your guns and stay in your homes and be ready.” Cause that’s what they were doing.

And so, he says in two different settlements, I can’t pronounce, they were fighting door to door combat because what they did is they went in and they got in these houses and they said, we’re not coming out. You’re going to have to kill us. And so he said several door to door combat units exchanging fire with several terrorists who are still alive. Dozens still stranded inside their home bomb shelters with Hamas terrorists and still barricaded inside their homes. The Sderot police station is still held by Hamas infiltrators… right now it’s 900 Israeli civilians were killed in that. And approximately 100 were kidnapped and taken back into Gaza. And 900 killed, over 1,000 wounded, 1,000 rockets fired. Now our area is quiet. This was Sunday, sounds of bombings in Gaza by the IAF is starting. The Israeli Air Force and if you watch any of it, they’re leveling Gaza, a very bad day for Israel of historic proportions. I assume a very fierce response from us, a serious intel failure on the IDF’s part. Embarrassing and costly, but this has to be a turning point on how we handle Gaza from now on.

And so, that’s someone who’s, you know… that’s someone who’s in their home at the ready, and probably his wife who’s ex-military too. I’m sure they’re both sitting there, with high powered weapons. And you have to put yourself there.

So this’ll help you pray. The ones that are serious about praying. It’s better that you know all this, and you know that it’s not just about what happens in Gaza. It’s really about… it’s going to get difficult if it explodes up north. That’s when it’s going to get really difficult and there’s going to be ammunition issues. If the U.S. does just not keep it coming.

And so this Psalm 83, I know this is different and we’re going to pray this, but I want you to see it before you pray it. Because if we put it up there and I pray it, you’re computing what it’s saying, but if we just go over it once, you’ll already know what it says and then we’ll pray it. So can we throw Psalm 83 up. It says,

“Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.
