Pray for Egypt Now! (from a LIVE Cairo feed – July 4, 2013)

Pray for Egypt now, saints. Pray the END of Isaiah 19 – ask YHWH to SKIP the Egyptian civil war part! – Why this handling of Holy Scripture? Because it’s what INTERCESSORS do. We stand in the gap between the now and the not yet. We ask YHWH – plead – implore – envision – paint – sing and dance – proclaim – stand and deliver. We are the seers who see Egypt as one in Messiah Yeshua!

This LIVE video link may not work for longer than a few days – it’s July 3rd – watch capture screenshots – and pray in praise for the God of Israel who LOVES Egypt!

Isaiah 19:

25 whom יהוה of hosts shall bless, saying, “Blessed is Mitsrayim My people, and Ashshur the work of My hands, and Yisra’ĕl My inheritance.” (TS 1998 version)

25 because Yahweh of Armies has blessed them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.”  (World English Bible)

  1. Is it possible to pray for skipping of the prophecy found in beginning of Isaiah 19? I don't think so, it's like praying against Gods Word…

  2. Viekko, I apologize for missing this comment! I have a very busy schedule and this entire site is proof of a temporary fix for a server-wide WordPress hack from 2010 that took out 20-some WordPress sites – 4 of which are preserved here. I also don't yet understand how to get notifications from squarespace.

    I appreciate your sentiment of being faithful to Scripture, but, no, it's not praying against God at all. In fact, To me, it's one of those, fairly obvious things about Scripture that so many are missing today.. as hearts wax cold. No offense intended, but it's a big deal.

    Remember the cry of the Father heart?

    <h3>YHWH "wondered that there was no intercessor!" (Isaiah 59:16)</h3>

    And, in context, as we see in verse 21, this passage is a Messianic passage speaking of Messiah's work of "intercession" on the crucifixion stake itself!

    Isaiah 59:15 Yes, truth is lacking; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.

    16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness, it upheld him. 17 He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head; and he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a mantle.

    18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, wrath to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense. 19 So shall they fear Yahweh’s name from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun; for he will come as a rushing stream, which the breath of Yahweh drives.

    20 'A Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from disobedience in Jacob,' says Yahweh.

    21 'As for me, this is my covenant with them,' says Yahweh. 'My Spirit who is on you, and my words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your seed, nor out of the mouth of your seed’s seed,' says Yahweh, 'from henceforth and forever.'"

    I see it as Abraham, Moses, a willful Jonah and, Chief Intercessor, Yeshua Himself would see it – "Father, forgive them! They don't know what they're doing!"

    It's an increasingly popular Christian past-time to pray "imprecatory" prayers of judgement "according to Scripture," dear brother. But I would argue that God will ask us when we stand before Him, "Why didn't you show them the mercy I showed you?"

    Here are the verse references for those passages and their overall intercessor (not imprecatory) import –

    1 – Abraham interceded before God's judgement set for Lot and Sodom and Gomorrah – Genesis 18:22-33 "..The men turned from there, and went toward Sodom, but Abraham stood yet before Yahweh."

    2 – Moses interceded before God's judgement against all the Hebrews in the wilderness – Exodus 32:9-14 "..YHWH repented of the evil which he said he would do to his people."

    3 – Jonah SHOULD have interceded for Nineveh but, altho his feet were on Ninevite soil in reluctant obedience, his heart wasn't for the souls of those strange people! – Jonah 4 (the whole chapter) "..YHWH said, 'Is it right for you to be angry?'"

    4 – And Yeshua, on the crucifixion stake, interceded for all humanity (once and for all!) – Luke 23:34: "Yeshua said, 'Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.' Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots."

    The nature of my prayer before YHWH is very creative.. I seek creative (right hand's art?) solutions that spring from my heart for people I don't know. I like to pray with my wife and children, "Father, there, but for the grace of God, are WE! WE could have been born Muslim! Have mercy on Muslim families! Cause them to know the grace shown to us – to America – to Israel!"

    Does that make sense, Viekko? Isn't that a Scriptural stance?
