Boqer Or (Good Morning Light)!

Shalom Fellow Warriors,

Wow!  Massive downpours and flooding hit the central sector of Israel last week and more is on the way!  Is there any significance to the recent Flashfloods here in Israel for us who are looking to this promised land as a prophetic clock in understanding world events?  I believe there is and the immensity of the display of the atmospheric disturbances here has been quite startling!  What a lighting show indeed!

Early Friday morning, after waiting in His shahar blackness of the predawn glory haze, I attended my weekly long distance run here in Israel with some friends.  Soon this run in the sand dunes along the beach was swallowed up in a unprecedented display of lightning and thunder that even startled some of the IDF reservists running with us.  As the rains fell I noticed how sweet it tasted compared to the rains I experienced in the recent 100 year flood that deluged Atlanta last month.  The Scripture verses that kept coming to me during this run was that this is the “showers of blessings” spoken of when the true shepherds arise before the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel (see Ezek. 34:23-31)!  Wow!  I’m telling you dear warriors, I have been in a plethora of violent thunderstorms being raised in the USA, yet I have never experienced such a lightning storm that just continued day after day this last week!  What does all this mean for us?

Besides being a rainfall/flooding that is blessings the agricultural heart of Israel in this central Sharon region, I believe it is also without a doubt a mysterious rare sign to all of us of the late hour we are in per Zechariah 9 and 10.  I encourage you to take the time to listen to this short podcast we have put together for you this morning and thus become even more cunning and wise as to the late hour we are all living in.  This is the time for us to re-calibrate our ears and listen to what the Spirit is saying in this late hour lest we be hardened due to the deceitfulness of sin (Heb. 3:12-19)!  The early rains have come and it is time to yield to Him with all haste
(Joel 2:23-32)!!!

(This is a recon weather update from the promised land.  Stay tuned for atmospheric disturbances….)

In His service for your faith,
