CREATED for a Time such as THIS!
Shalom Partner and Friend of
What we are watching in our world today is significant, it’s also Biblical, and it’s all according to God’s “Mo’ed’” – “appointed times!” We want to encourage you to see 2021 (5781/2) as a year to stay faithful to God, His Word and especially family ...and to know that you are dearly beloved by God who has a special plan and purpose for your life!
When we face this year as a year with positively and hope and realise that as true Bible believing - Judeo-Christians we have an assignment …even though the days are evil and are filled with unknowns we can be assured and know that our God is in control over every situation that we WILL ever face! When we look clearly and see that everything about our lives, including the way we look – our height – our hair or skin colour are all uniquely made and God designed to fulfil God’s purpose and plan - “for a time such as this!”
“Perhaps you were born for such a time as this…?” What does that verse mean to you? Yes, we know it is quoted from the Book of Esther but just for a moment place yourself in this situation in this generation - our generation! We could have been born at any time over the centuries - over thousands of years before or after Christ’s First Coming …but Almighty God choose every one of us to be here at this time! Now read the verse as Mordecai tells Queen Esther of the dangers and give her an ultimation and leaves her with a question; “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” - Esther 4:14-16. Esther recognized her life was more than just about herself and that she had a calling or assignment from God and replied; “Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai. Go and assemble all the Jews who can be found in
What does it mean to us today? It means that ALL of us born in this generation – on this earth at this End-Time are by “God’s appointed time” (Mo’ed) …and He has placed us right where we are and with the people we are with for a reason. It’s NOT by chance we are in alive today or how we are placed into our families or even the country we live in. Yes, even the day that we were born and the day we will die (Hebrews ) - all of us are here by “an appointed time!” God knew us before we were even in our mother’s womb; “The word of the LORD came to me, saying; ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’” – Jeremiah 1:5-10. Also Read; Psalm 139:15-16; Galatians ; Luke ; Isaiah 49:1 and in Isaiah 45:1-3
Isaiah carries a remarkable prophecy and in it, God announces by name the deliverer for His people from a coming captivity, and He does it 210 years before the man Cyrus is born… Thus, says the LORD to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held; to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: "I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places that you may know that I, the LORD, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel." – Isaiah 45:1-3. “Thus, says the LORD to His anointed means that this word was particularly directed to Cyrus. This was God's message to him, and Cyrus apparently listened. "These things Cyrus knew from reading the book of prophecy which Isaiah had left behind two hundred and ten years earlier." (Josephus, Antiquities XI, 5).
God Himself even prepared the way for King Cyrus – His anointed’s “assignment!” His “anointed” - means that Cyrus had a particular anointing from God for his work. God poured out His Spirit on a pagan king, because God wanted to use that man to bless and deliver His people -
So, when God called Cyrus, he was a pagan but there is precedent for the divine anointing of a non-Israelite king though in one passage only and that can be found in 1 Kings 19:15-16. Remember when Elijah hid in a cave from Jezebel the Lord came to him where he was hiding; “…Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.” The Lord said to him, “Go back the way you came, and go to the

What we did we see after Barack Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring?” It brought
President Trump is so unique and truly God appointed and anointed him - for “a time such as this.” Trump did something so unique as he brought peace to
It’s the same thing that
It’s a safe, secure and prosperous
What are we seeing in our world today? Evil men and women are waxing worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13; Isaiah 60:2). Deception and lies are daily on the Media propagating for wicked leaders and they are no longer even trying to hide it …but rather openly expressing it as if were truth! God however sees, the world differently to us and wants all to be saved so we can also expect to see an “awakening” or “harvest” of souls as people begin to see through the deception that has been fed to them …and begin to seek God and Truth! You see the Holy Spirit of God is the Spirit of Truth and evil people will be held accountable! God is speaking to all of us but are we listening? He is saying to the Church that in these Last Days He is preparing to do something greater, bigger than anything that has ever been seen in the history of the earth and in the history of the Church – and He is doing it NOW! Though there is an enormous battle taking place in the earth - Satan is going to be defeated and his time is short. There will be a visitation of God greater than the world has ever seen. You may say; “BUT everything looks just impossible?” Well, our God is a God of justice and is also a merciful God. As we read in Joel 2:28 God promises; “In the last days I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh!” The Church – the Body of Christ MUST arise as it is time to shine in the midst of great darkness!
Looking back at 2020… It was a year that most around the world WILL remember as the year of Corona - COVID-19 Virus, Lockdowns, lies and great deception, Government controlling freedoms. It was a year when the world looked on in horror to see godless people causing chaos of lawlessness and using racialism as a weapon to loot and destroy property …NOT only in America but also across the world …and in South Africa the murder of farmers, theft of funds and corruption in government. The wickedness of Democrats, radical Liberals, Communism raising its dragon flag through China, Socialists and Islam all worked their plans together for 4 years against President Trump …and in 2020 “the STEAL” of an election was openly revealed as the world watched the recent US Election and saw in the dark hours of the morning on the 04th November, 2020 when that when Trump was winning re-election hugely and so the Democrats switched off the electoral counting machines, and began to “cheat” for Biden who had openly boasted about the cheating being the greatest cheat ever and of all time and proclaimed a "dark night for America!
Unjust Judges… Just like the times of Ancient Israel when a nation turns away from God – then God gives them bad leaders they desire – those that passes legislation against God and then hands them over to their enemies. Did you know? Israel and America both share Biblical foundational history. Israel had 13 tribes and America had 13 colonies. Ancient Israel was once divided into two territories – Judea and Samaria. America was once divided into North and South. Modern America today parallels with those “unjust judges” of Ancient Israel - where corrupt MONEY determined the outcome not the TRUTH! Truly we are living in times of Noah and Lot where violence covered the earth as our Lord warned us in Matthew 24 what it would be like just before His return. 2020 showed the world just how violent and lawless people had become for power!
The LORD hates anyone who cheats, but he likes those who are honest; “Dishonest scales are an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is His delight.” – Proverbs 11:1. (See also; Leviticus 19:35-36; Deuteronomy 25:13, 16; Proverbs 16:11, 20:23; Hosea 12:7; Micah 6:11). A scale was used as the means of weight especially during harvest times of the Old Testament in Israel and men would take stones to weight out good their goods they were selling. Dishonesty would occur when they would use the lighter stones if they were selling their goods and they would use the heavier stones to get more for their produce. In fact, they would even hollow out stones to make them lighter …or make them heavier to cheat the other person. This was called the “unjust scales” by God and says that it is an abomination to Him to cheat.
Today even the SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the
Another meaning for “corrupt” is “decay” as in a dead body! The Lord says He hates corrupt or false balances and the scales that would be used to promote power for Liberal rule, unrighteous living, abortions and wickedness is evident even in the courts not only in
The world witnessed and watched in horror “the cheat” happen in the early hours of
The world looks at the Gregorian Calendar…. They perceive things to be or even anticipate things to be by looking at how the unbelievers WITHOUT God has to control or manipulate things to look as if they have control. A good example is on the cover of the “The Economist’s December 2020 edition!” If you look carefully you see a slot machine with; Covid-19 Virus, Biden, American flag split, Zoom, China, Climate Change, Nuclear, Economy, Masks and Vaccines (which they will soon force upon everyone or suffer difficult times) …and this is their predictions for 2021 in a nutshell! Look carefully and you see the plans of godless Liberal, Socialist, and Communist GLOBALIST Leaders that have been put in place in secret long before they were even revealed to the unsuspecting public!
A picture speaks “a thousand words!” We are NOT gamblers …but anyone ever playing a slot machine will know that the chances of winning are slim unless you are “lucky” or the machines are rigged! According to the Economist 2021 is going to be a “gamble!” Man can plan or propose but in the end God Almighty – the God of the Bible - the God of Israel …and our God can and will intervene at any moment as judgement comes upon the godless just like the “Tower of Babel” in Genesis 11:1-9. We live in a very strange world however still we have a “peace” as God is in control …even though we on an “edge” of major changes!
Always remember that the true
Freedom around the world is under attack by Globalists, radical Liberals, Big Tech, Socialists, Communists, Islamists, Media,
FREEDOM is NOT FREE – it must be fought for; “From then on, half my men worked and half stood guard, wearing coats of armour and armed with spears, shields, and bows. And our leaders gave their full support to the people who were rebuilding the wall. Even those who carried building materials worked with one hand and kept a weapon in the other, and everyone who was building kept a sword strapped to his waist. The man who was to sound the alarm on the bugle stayed with me. I told the people and their officials and leaders, “The work is spread out over such a distance that we are widely separated from one another on the wall. If you hear the bugle, gather round me. Our God will fight for us.” – Nehemiah 4:16-20. Time for Luke-Warm Christianity is over! We must fight with the sword God has given us (Ephesians 6) and we must NOT be SILENT! We must change of FOCUS and take heed what we hear and how we hear (Luke ).
Like Nehemiah – President Trump over the past 4 years had to literally work with one hand shielded …and the other hand with a sword as the attacks came daily …and daily rely upon God’s protection! Nehemiah challenged everyone as they rebuilt walls and gates of
What we allow in this New Year of 2021 - will either be for us or against us …and just like Nehemiah we MUST take control …and so we must NOT allow the enemy to shift our focus off God and believe their lies and deception! Nehemiah spoke with authority to his people and told them; NOT to be afraid of them but to rather (1) remember the Lord who is awesome and (2) FIGHT for their families, sons, daughters, wives and homes!” You see what Nehemiah did here was wisdom as he took the focus off of the enemy and then placed it where it was MOST important! Nehemiah told them to focus on God who is working with them and for them. God has not forgotten us either but we must fight for righteousness! It may cost something BUT we know in the end that with Almighty God is on our side we win!
So how does it affect the Church and what do believers do…? When our Lord Yeshua came 2,000 Years ago the authority was given to us! It’s the most wonderful time and exciting time to be alive as God is on our side! “…and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” – Hebrews 12:1. In 2021 let’s look at it like a relay race! The fastest and strongest runners are always placed at the end to finish the race. We MUST remain true to God’s Word and as Judea-Christian believers that God has promised; “…I (God) will bless those who bless you (
This generation is the “Fig Tree” generation and it is a privileged generation and we are ALL chosen to be “born for a time such as this!” We are watching Prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes almost daily! God is today judging not only governments and leaders but the nations too! Which nations…? Sheep and goat nations! “And He will separate one from another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats”- Matthew 25:32. To see which nations will be here during the 7-day Millennium Reign of Yeshua – Jesus Christ! So, the main issue is how we treat
History as well as the Bible has shown us that when a nation blesses Israel, they WILL be blessed. Germany and the Holocaust is a good example of cursing the Jew …and they themselves were destroyed and had to be rebuilt after WW11 …but even today anti-Semitism is still a fact there! You see judgement WILL come to all who oppress the Jews – so that is ALL nations including South Africa under the current government who support the enemies of Israel. America is truly blessed under US President Donald Trump who aligned the U.S. very close to the Biblical view that God has for Israel …and so the U.S. saw great financial blessing when Trump moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognised it as their Eternal Capital, and as he recognised and annexed the Golan Heights to Israel; recognised Judea and Samaria (West bank) …but if America ever chooses another president like Barack Obama who cursed Israel …the blessings of God will be removed again. Individual people in the nations who bless and support Israel will be blessed even if their governments don’t as God also judges us individually.
God wants to bless you and your family, and He wants YOU to be a part of His work. Thank you to all partners for your prayers, unconditional love and support to Pray4Zion so that we together can bless and make a difference in the lives of God’s chosen people and nation of ISRAEL! “For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirst and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in….!” – Matthew 25:35-36.
When the Lord Yeshua (Jesus Christ) calmed the waves of the sea, He was demonstrating “dominion” rule over the earth, the authority which Adam and his descendants were deprived of as a consequence of his transgression; “But the men were amazed, saying, ‘What kind of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!?’” – Matthew 8:27. Remember what the demons said to Yeshua (Jesus)? “What have we to do with You, Jesus, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time? – Matthew 8::29. And, in; Revelation 12:12; “…for the Devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows his time is short!” You see Satan knows his time is up very shortly and this is why “Days of Chaos” have come a full circle …and just as Satan fooled Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden today “great wrath” is being poured out upon the earth as Satan is fighting for his survival and is using wicked people to help him. We are living in “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1) and people are saying it’s going to get better but it’s only going to speed up and we must be prepared for the fact that we are living in the End-Times and though we face days of “great deception!” Bible prophecy is mostly about the Middle East and particularly about Jerusalem and Israel. Everything that we are seeing now happing in the world is important as it is a precursor of what is coming to Israel. The rise of China is the prophetic rise of the “kings of the East.” And the revealing of the plans of the Globalists including their cohorts in the Media, Elites, Hollywood, radical Liberals and Socialist who are fighting Trump today are predominantly working against America in Europe as they knowingly or unknowingly are preparing the way for the revealing of Antichrist. It may be happening and centred around America today …but, make no mistake it eventually WILL work its way to Israel; Daniel 11, Isaiah 49, Revelation 16 – make NO mistake China (land of Sin or Sin’ím) wants world rule but they not Globalists …BUT so do the Globalists want to rule and are literally the spokespersons for the coming Antichrist. They are two different entities but are using each other to get America out of the way and then the fight will be between them for power.
We believe that China and Asian countries are rising and just as the Bible warns us WILL come against Israel as “kings of the East.” Globalists who are today headed by a very wicked man and billionaire called George Soros and they offer money to people to do their bidding and so does China – both are offering money to literally “implode” America …but in the end both WILL be coming against Israel and the Messiah upon His return! China – “the king of the East” and Globalist Antichrist! Just as we all have witnessed the impact on the nations with the Covid-19 Virus deliberately spread by China with the help and coverup by the World Health Org. (WHO) and the lies of corrupt Media spreading fear as well as governments using this “plannedemic” for their personal political gain. You see God is judging the nations! Yes, the plague of the Covid-19 virus was spread by man …but man is NOT above God and today He is judging the nations. Think on this? Only Almighty God could shut ALL the nations of the world all at once! Not only did all the airlines cease, economies fell and people locked up in homes. When was Israel last locked down in their homes over Passover? 3,500 years ago! There are so many indications of God’s Hand during lockdowns. Truly God protected His children and supplied every need, healed and were kept from harm and some even were blessed in many ways above their expectations.
What is going on in America right now is a reflection of what the world is going to go through… We must understand that there is a “clash of civilizations” at this moment. Globalism wants to take over through chaos and violence and even the deception of Media has fooled everyone to think that to have a Globalists Socialist Government is the way out of problems. Even in South Africa and Australia they are pushing for Globalism by saying Capitalism doesn’t work but as these same leaders are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. These Globalists say we need to be dependent upon government for all our needs and sadly many are blinded! In Israel it will not work as there will be many that will NOT accept Globalism above the Word of God! There are Liberals in Israel that are even waving black flags to try and bring down Israel BUT Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will NOT allow this and neither will the people who know their God. We too have to rather be pro-Biblical and seek God’s truth and live our lives for Him knowing that He is on our side and will bring us through troubled times.
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With “lockdown” and difficult “recovery” still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
