What is Shavuot? [Prayer May 26th, 2012]

In my family, we admit ignorance. So, altho I might know more than the average student of Scripture, I mean it when I ask, “What is Shavuot?”

This last Saturday and Sunday we had the extreme privilege of sitting under the instruction of a brother in the faith of Yeshua named Asher Intrater. In fact I’ve uploaded the audio from his very informative meetings and you can listen here:

And I’ll study along with you!
But here’s a HUGE consideration from Asher (“Revival in the End Times – May 19 8 PM” – about 26 minutes in) –

So what did Peter mean (in Acts 2:16) when he said this is what happened! this is what Joel was talking about?

What Peter meant was, ‘this experience that we just experienced is the experience that Joel is talking about that will one day spread from us, go all the way around the world and, one day, EVERYONE in the world TOGETHER is going to have this experience. We are the start of it but there is another end to it.’

So it’s the same experience they had back then… but what they had was a localized Pentecost and we believe in WORLDWIDE PENTECOST! It will be the same experience! Are you listening? We’re not looking for a DIFFERENT experience!

This is very important! Because some people are saying, ‘Well, we don’t want that tongues stuff and we don’t want that fire stuff and we don’t want people looking like they’re drunk!

Listen, we don’t have another plan!! We gotta have the SAME EXPERIENCE! …

We believe in all that stuff – we don’t believe in anything BUT that stuff! Hello?

We want the EXACT SAME THING with nothing missing and nothing added! And that’s what we’re looking to have!

We want the SAME FIRE that they had!

Now we have to go back to Jerusalem to be in the same place that they were and we  ‘re speaking Hebrew just like THEY were speaking Hebrew! And we’re Jewish people just like THEY were Jewish people! And we’re celebrating the Jewish holidays just like they were celebrating it! We want to be the SAME people in the SAME place at the SAME time with the SAME language with the SAME plan! Why??

Because we want the same results! …

We’re not doing all this stuff culturally in the same way they did so you all can be impressed with our culture.

We’re going back and doing the same things that they were doing because we want the same FIRE.

And this is a promise back to YOU.

That if the same people are back in Jerusalem at the same time believing the same thing that they were believing in… it’s time for you to get the same fire that they had!

Why else would we be there right now?! God has restored the REMNANT OF ISRAEL so this SAME event can happen again! This same experience! We want the same fire! …

Every place we go in the world we’re praying for that same fire to descend. We’re sending out young Israelis all around the world today… this year to over 20 nations. And we told them, ‘You go to that place, you believe for the same fire, the same gospel, the same thing they did in Acts Chapter 1 and Acts Chapter 2. You go believing the same thing to happen! And it’s gonna happen all around the world! Glory to God!


Join us as we join them! The following came from:


Acts 2:1-4 “When the day of Shavuot had fully come, they were all together in one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues as of fire and rested upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and beagn to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. ” Acts 2:17 (Joel 2: 28) –” It will come to pass in the last days that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh”


Shavuot Prayer & Fasting in One Accord from Jerusalem

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh”

City of David – Son of David

Not only are Jews keepers of the Scripture and keepers of Torah (the idea of “right and wrong”), but they are the keepers of Biblical antiquity!

Some will say “who cares?” But they would, likely, also call good evil and evil good.

For those who care and are grateful, check this out:

King David existed. He was the hero, the leader that our Amazing Scriptures speak of..

And, therefore, Yeshua, Son of David (by lineage) is also.

Not only is Yeshua a hero and a leader, but He is to be worshipped!

“One for one!”

Netanyahu: Jerusalem will remain united

[Update: Full Speech Translation at – here]

From – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday that partitioning Jerusalem could result in a religious war.

Speaking at a state ceremony marking Jerusalem Day in the capital’s Ammunition Hill, Netanyahu said: “If we place this quadrate of the Temple Mount in the hands of others, I doubt we will be able to avoid a religious war.

“I know what history has taught us: only under Israeli sovereignty were peace and quiet among the faiths maintained.”

Netanyahu further added, “Israel without Jerusalem is like a body with a weak heart. Never again will our heart be divided.

“A nation willing to sacrifice its heart would convince its enemies it has no desire to fight for anything. Jewish history has changed forever: the divided city has been united and will stay that way.

“Our generation has a great privilege of witnessing the realization of the words of the prophets. It is up to our generation to secure this change for generations to come.”

President Shimon Peres, who also attended the ceremony, said: “The Jewish longing for Jerusalem is unparalleled.” In a message of peace, he remarked: “We will always cherish and respect Jerusalem’s residents and visitors of all faiths. We shall honor their holy places and their right for freedom of religion.”

“The crowing glory (of the Six Day War) that gave it great spiritual meaning and that struck a chord with every Jew in Israel and the world was Jerusalem,” he said. “Jerusalem was and is the Jewish people’s first city,” Peres added.

“In its entire history, Jerusalem has never been so great, open, versatile, lively and yearning for peace as it is today.”

The ceremony was also attended by Mayor Nir Barkat, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and bereaved families.

As Yeshua’s followers in Israel struggle with how to tell their story – the Bible story – to the nations at the end of the information age, pray that they do not lose YHWH’s “zeal for Zion” (John 2:14-25) in the process of diplomacy.

Happy birthday, Israel!

While Yom Haatzmaut (Day of Independence) was April 26th, 2012 on the Hebrew (lunar) calendar this year, today is the Gregorian equivalent of the Rebirth of Israel – May 14th, 1948 – one of our planet’s most ancient and faithful nations.

I am Israel Intercessor. And so are you. We are here on the wall between chaos and shalom, guarding against the evil that would hurl unrest, disease, destruction… and chaos into the lands of the peace-seeking. We are the Israel Intercessors!

Pray in agreement with King Yeshua now as never before, dear saints. He WILL remove everything that hinders love. There WILL be a highway of holiness connecting Israel with it’s partner nations (Isaiah 19). The Sar Shalom shall prevail.

Israel Mandate

Zechariah 12:3: “It will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples. All who burden themselves with it will be severely wounded, and all the nations of the earth will be gathered together against it.”

I love Israel. I love the Jews. I’m a Christian Zionist (The one your neighborhood Islamic tyrant warned you about). And I actually love the fact that Jerusalem is SO peculiar that those who seek to move it – to destroy it – to divide it – to preach “separation” or “replacement” theology against it… will be severely wounded.

It’s YHWH’s way of saying. “That’s MINE. Back off!”

And I believe I myself have been wounded severely by YHWH’s faithful jealousy. Knowing enough to be included as His son, by faith, yet being ignorant enough to wander painfully into the depths of darkness, I’ve been wounded.

But, since 1997 when a secretary at the radio station I worked at invited me to meet a wise Jewish sage, and simultaneously I began to pray into and to study the “Israel Mandate” of IHOP-KC, I stand today, by YHWH’s glorious Grace, with fire in my bones for the purpose of seeing Yeshua take His rightful place on my planet as the King of kings and LORD of lords – His place in Jerusalem!

Today I’m backing away from a task that was gestured towards me by one of my favorite mentors, Jim Maher (see image left).

Jim, who had served many years as leading brother for our Israel Mandate ministry at IHOP, turned to me one day, said, “Tom, the LORD has need of you!”

The need was for an approach to sharing the message of the Israel mandate online which would encompass today’s technology.

I took him and YHWH up on the task and that’s how the Facebook page came about!

Today, however, over a year later, I’ve changed the URL from to

Having lost all communication with any form of leadership (by no one’s fault) and not feeling I properly represent IHOP-KC’s vision any more, I am distancing myself from Jim’s “last known command.”

I don’t plan to stop reporting on and laboring for Israel, for “hasbara” (“explanation”) or for other intercession – whispered or acted out – but I do want to make it clear that I no longer seek to represent IHOP-KC in any way with the Facebook account.

The name “Mr.” Israel Mandate is still attached to the account. And the email is still named thus. But, from now on, I’ll be focusing my energy (back) on the My Right Hand’s Art account.

Yeshua, bless those who bless Israel.
