This month I want to call attention to David Silver and Out of Zion ministries in Haifa, Israel. The Silvers are warriors of the spirit and warriors in the flesh! David’s eldest son, Stefan, was something of a wonder when he led a brigade into Lebanon during the recent war there – a forward-moving brigade that, historically, incurred many casualties – without one lost soldier. His testimony was recorded on both Israeli radio and television as a stunning testimony to Yeshua’s grace and angelic covering! HaleluYah!
Found this just now – Stefan on his life in the IDF – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGPsnSadZeo
So THIS is the family you are about to hear from. Please pray hard into this one, dear saints.

David’s Comment: Are You Ready to Pray as Never Before ?
Bob Dylan: “For the times they are a changing ………. “
As I have shared more than once in recent months, we are all on the precipice of massive disruption to our regular daily routine. I have been closely monitoring world events ever since I became a Believer 22 years ago. Much has changed in the world over those 22 years, but I still find it absolutelly incredible, the way things are unfolding before our very eyes, here in Israel and in the nations.
I remember when it was considered indecent to show sexually explicit material in movies or on TV
I remember when it was illegal to use profanity in movies, TV & on the radio
I remember when it was shameful for an unmarried woman to have a baby
I remember when it was shameful for a person to be homosexual
I remember when children and teenagers were expected to show respect to their elders
I remember when most people in the western world considered themselves and their country to be Christian
I remember when using the Lord’s name in vain was a no-no
I remember when we used to allow our children and young people to pray at school
I remember when tattoos were for sailors and Hells Angels
I remember when normal people didn’t pierce their bodies in bizarre places
I remember when the presidents of the USA used to have names like George, Bill, Ronald, John, Gerald. Now the president is called Barack Hussein Obama
And finally I remember when Israel was called the Promised Land and most western people saw Israel as a ‘hero’ nation
But all that has changed – drastically – the Lord says to us in His word Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20 NKJ) But that is exactly what most of the once Christian world is doing today. And it is bringing the wrath of God down upon our nations.
So your country is in big trouble and its definately time to pray for your own well-being as never before. Even more importantly, we in Israel are in dire and urgent need of your pray and intercession. In the natural the odds are stacking up against Israel as never before ………….
Hizbollah is armed to the teeth with 40,000 plus missiles, some with chemical and biological warheads – leader Sheik Hazrallah continues to rant and rave
about destroying Israel
Syria is similarly armed and is desparate to regain the Golan Heights that Israel captured in the Yom Kippur War
Hamas in the Gaza Strip is also re-arming after the war with Israel in earlier this year – many of the smuggling tunnels have been recommissioned and
weaponry and terror personnel are pouring in to the Strip in preparation for the next war with Israel.
Fatah in the West Bank are talking peace at the table, but on the ground are also preparing for war. Fatah refuses to acknowledge the right of Israel to
exist as a Jewish state
Iran is working frantically to complete its nuclear weapons program – at every opportunity mad Ahmadinejhad (who is actually Jewish) denies that the
Holocaust took place, and proclaims the destruction of Israel. He threatened last week that if any US or Israeli missile strike Iran, Israel will cease to
Finally and perhaps of most concern, Israel’s one-time friend, the United States of America has turned her back on the Jewish nation and now seems to be
far more interested in placating the Muslim world. In a statement that should shock us all, former US Secretary of State, Zbignew Brezinski,
suggested that the US Air Force shoot down Israeli jets if they fly over Iraq on the way to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities
All of Israel is under imminent threat, especially the major cities of the coastal plain – Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tel Aviv and Haifa. We live in Haifa, on the upper slopes of Mt Carmel, and to be honest with you, our vmuch valued prayer team, we are more than a little concerned about what lies ahead for our city. Haifa must surely be a primary target for enemy missiles. Not only is Israel’s only oil refinery is in Haifa, there are many fuel storage tanks here as well as a large ammonia storage tank in the port. If that ammonia tank is hit, even with conventional missiles, the resulting explosion will destroy a large part of the city, and the escaping ammonia gas cloud could kill tens of thousands of people in the city and suburbs downwind of the explosion. If Iran, Syria or Hizbollah launches a multl miissile attack, Haifa and the other cities will suffer enormous damage and if chemical or biological weapons are deployed, the death and injury toll could be horrific. And in the worse case scenario, if Iran manages to send just one nuclear warhead to Israel, millions could be killed and most of the country will be inhabitable for a very long time.
Some of the above scenarios must come to pass as there are quite a few scripture verses that seem to indicate that Israel will be attacked and suffer greatly before the Lord returns. However in Zechariah 14, we read that at the crucial time, the LORD will step into the battle to save Israel from utter destruction and to totally destroy the armies that came against her.
We cant stop what is about to happen, as it written and it must come to pass, but we can pray and intercede as never before, to beseech the Holy One of Israel to save as many of His people as possible – to save them physically and more importantly, to save them spiritually. Remind Him that He promised in Romans 11, that one day ALL Israel will be saved. And PLEASE pray every day for our family and all of the Believers in Israel, that even in the worst case scenario, the angels of the Lord will watch over and protect us. Your prayers are heard and will move the hand of God. Please take this as seriuosly as I have written it …………..
The Lord bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the God of Israel. Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their God. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for that breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray for all of the soldiers in the IDF -they are defending and fighting for the Kingdom of God.
Shabbat Shalom …. David & Josie
