David’s Comment: In Latin the Word ‘Left’ is ‘Sinister’ – Is it just a coincedence ?
Isaiah 59:19 When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will raise up a standard against him.
Over the last five decades the Western world has seen a dramatic rise of the left wing in the political realm, in the media, and those two have influenced the majority of the citizens of the Western nations. Most left leaning people are very liberal minded, who have left GOD and righteousness behind, most of them being atheists or agnostics, supportive of the murder of the unborn and the abominable homosexuals lifestyle, who are taking over our once half decent societies. Communism began in Russia at the end of World War 1 in 1917 and continued to expand its influence as Russia became the USSR, and took control over more and more Eastern European nations. At the end of World War 2, Europe was divided into West and East, the dividing line being Democracy and Communism. During the Cold War that began with this division and ended in 1989 when the Berlin Wall was breached, the world was at numerous times on the verge of Nuclear War, as the Western democratic nations faced off with the communistic USSR. The dividing line was drawn between Democracy and Communism, and was also defined as the West or the East. This division was also defined as Right Wing or Left Wing. Even though the communistic USSR broke apart in 1991, the division between left and right continued to grow stronger and is the main dividing line in almost every nation of the world today. Most European languages are based on the Latin language.
In Latin the word for left is sinister and right is dexter. It is noteworthy that YHVH’s standards contained in the Torah are designed to lead mankind to righteousness, and we can see that the word right is there in the word righteousness. As more and more people move to the left wing, Bible defined righteousness is becoming less and less a part everyday life in almost every nation. Our world has become morally bankrupt and each generation becomes more morally bankrupt as the left wing people wage their war against the right, doing their utmost to ensure that the upcoming generations are not taught right from wrong. This is invading every area of our societies, the extreme being the behavior of the abortionists and the homosexuals. The LORD declares in His Word that homosexuality is an abomination, and in Proverbs 6:17 the Bible says that hands that shed innocent blood are an abomination. I believe that the murder of the innocent unborn is even more of an abomination to the One who created the babies, but over the few decades, for most Western leaders and the secular media, these activities have become fully acceptable in our societies. And because of the influence of the left wing politicians and the media, the majority of people in the world today also see these 2 abominations as acceptable. GOD is watching over the world and He is not pleased with the behavior of the nations, including Israel. I believe He is beginning to shake the world in the hope of waking people up before it is too late.
As I am watching the political situation in Israel, in the USA over President Trump, in the UK over Brexit, and the violent protests in Gaza, Hong Kong, Iraq, Lebanon, Chile and other places, I am asking the question, “has a spirit been released over the Earth ? – Is GOD shaking the world ?” There is also the increasing occurance of extreme weather and other natural disasters.
The Bible tells us that Satan is the God of this world (2 Cor 4:4) and he is the ultimate expression of sinister. And in 1 John 5:19, we are told that the whole world lies under his influence. It is he who is leading the world to the left and as far away from righteousness as he can. I felt inspired to write this comment to highlight the agenda of the left wing, and more importantly as a call to prayer and intercession. Here is the verse that we can pray to slow down and hopefully reverse it. Isaiah 59:19 When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will raise up a standard against him. For the sake of Israel and for the sake of your nations and your unsaved family and friends, please take this call to prayer seriously. Let’s storm the gates of Hell and declare that verse and any others that the Holy Spirit may show you.
The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on all of the land given to the Jewish people by the GOD of Israel. Please pray that all 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 a breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.
Shabbat Shalom ….. David & Josie h

1. USA Concerned About Increasing Relationship Between Israel and China sheldonkirschner.com
Israel?s increasingly close economic ties with China, its third largest trading partner, pose a problem for its chief ally, the United States. The Trump administration, currently locked in a trade war with China, has warned Israel in recent months that its pivotal relationship with the USA could be adversely affected unless it scales back its commercial cooperation with Beijing. The warnings have come from, among others, President Trump, Secretary of State Pompeo and the U.S. Senate. Last March, around the time that President Trump asked PM Netanyahu to curb Israel?s links with China, Pompeo sounded a similar warning, saying the United States might reduce ?intelligence sharing? with Israel if it did not accede to Washington?s request. Israel is acutely aware of American misgivings. Top-level Israeli official have raised concerns about this sensitive issue, which basically revolves around China?s role in building and maintaining Israel?s national infrastructure. China companies, for example, are currently involved in constructing a light rail system in Tel Aviv. He was referring to one case in particular: Israel?s decision in 2015 to permit the Chinese government-owned Shanghai International Port Group to manage part of Haifa?s port for 25 years from 2021 onward. Israel?s Foreign Ministry has also addressed this issue. Two-and-a-half months ago, in a report sent to the Israeli cabinet, it warned that Israel could be heading toward a confrontation with the United States unless tight restrictions are imposed on China?s investments in Israel. As a result, Netanyahu instructed the Foreign Ministry, the Finance Ministry and Israel?s ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, to devise a plan to balance its interests with the United States and China. Since the early 1990s, the annual volume of trade between Israel and China has rocketed from $50 million to more than $18 billion. Pray that the diplomatic, trade and spiritual relationships between Israel, the USA and China will remain healthy and in the best interests of all 3 nations
2. Possibility of Israel / Iran War Continues to Escalate Israel Today News Oct 24th
President Trump?s sudden decision to pull out US Special Forces from Syria after he had a phone call with the Turkish President has caused major changes in the strategic situation in the Middle East and could lead to a war between Iran and Israel. Israel Army Radio has reported that the Israeli military is preparing for an Iranian cruise missile and drone attack similar to the one which hit Saudi Arabia at the beginning of September. Unnamed Israeli government sources told Army Radio that the IDF is already on high alert and that the Israeli Security Cabinet will convene again to discuss the increasing Iranian threat and the situation in Syria. An earlier Security Cabinet meeting two weeks ago also dealt with the rapidly changing strategic situation in the Middle East and the one in Syria and Iraq in particular. At the time, PM Netanyahu told Israelis that they should ?always remember and apply the basic rule that guides us: Israel will defend itself, on its own, in the face of every threat.? It was clear the Israeli leader was talking about the increasing Iranian threat to Israel and the American betrayal of its Kurdish allies in the war against Islamic State. In Syria and Iraq, in the meantime, tectonic strategic changes are taking place which could have major consequences for Israel?s overall security situation. Pray that in the event of an Iranian Attack, the Israeli government and military will act swiftly and decisively, and more importantly, that GOD and the Heavenly armies will fight the battle for Israel
3. IDF Plans to Strengthen Israel’s Borders Algemeiner News Oct 28th
Late last week the IDF disclosed its new five-year plan of operations with its chief of staff warning, ?The situation is fragile in the north and south and may deteriorate into a confrontation.? The publication of the plan was reportedly postponed as a result of the continuing political uncertainty in Israel, with coalition talks still underway and a caretaker government in charge. The army concluded, however, that it had ?no choice but to move forward? in light of recent developments. The IDF said the proposal was intended to address ?the multiplicity of events and the multiplicity of activities? on the security front. The plan was formulated through a thorough assessment of the IDF?s capabilities and was intended to address and design solutions to perceived flaws. The plan also deals with what is believed to be the central threat facing Israel: A decentralized enemy in an urban space equipped with precision weapons. This description fits both the Hezbollah terrorist organization in the north and Hamas terrorist groups in the south. The IDF Chief of Staff emphasized the threat from Hezbollah, saying, ?Israel?s central strategic challenge lies in the northern arena: in the entrenchment of Iranian and other forces in Syria and the precision-missile project. In both cases, it is an Iranian-led effort, using the territory of governments that are limited in their powers,? he added. ?For years, Hezbollah has ?taken Lebanon prisoner,? established its own army there, and it is the one that actually determines Lebanon?s ?security policy,?? Kochavi stated. Pray that Israel?s enemies in Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and Gaza, along with terrorists among the Palestinians in Israel will be uncovered, defeated and swept away.
4. PM Netanyahu: Iran Planning to Attack Israel from Yemen World Israel News 28th Oct
PM Netanyahu said on Monday that Iran was attempting to deploy advanced weaponry in Yemen to threaten Israel and other countries in the region. During a press conference in Jerusalem with visiting the U.S. Treasury Secretary, PM Netanyahu said that Iran is seeking to develop now precision-guided munitions, missiles that can hit any target in the Middle East with a circumference of five to ten meters.? ?They want to place them in Iraq and in Syria, and to convert Lebanon?s arsenal of 130,000 statistical rockets to precision-guided munitions,? PM Netanyahu continued. ?They seek also to develop that, and have already begun to put that in Yemen, with the goal of reaching Israel from there too.? PM Netanyahu emphasized the global threat posed by the Tehran regime, saying, ?We view Iran as the greatest threat to peace, stability, and our security, and the security of many others. They fired into Saudi Arabia. They?ve interfered with international shipping lanes. They?ve attacked Americans and they?ve killed Americans throughout the last ten years in Afghanistan and elsewhere.? ?Iran is the single greatest threat to stability and peace in the Middle East,? he added. Pray that Iran’s war plans are exposed and prevented from being carried out.
5. Israeli Embassies on High Alert INN News Oct 30th
Israeli embassies around the world have increased security and awareness over fears that Iran will attack Israel by targeting a diplomatic mission on foreign soil. The diplomatic missions have been put on high alert and ordered to take certain security measures, according to reports. The Israeli military?s chief of staff and PM Netanyahu both have warned in recent days that Iran has become more aggressive and apt to respond to Israeli attacks on Iranian targets in Syria and Lebanon. Kochavi warned that the attacks could come from Iran or from its proxies in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, the Kan public broadcaster reported. PM Netanyahu warned Monday during a news conference with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin that Iran was trying to launch precision-guided missiles at Israel from Yemen and that the Islamic Republic would place such missiles in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Pray that any plans by Iran to attack Israeli embassies will be exposed and terminated.
6. Israel on Alert for Iranian Missile Attack Times of Israel News Oct 31
The Israeli Air Force chief said the military?s multi-tiered network of air defense systems were ?on alert? amid a general threat of attack by Iran. In recent weeks, the military has begun to believe that Tehran intends to eventually retaliate against Israel?s regular airstrikes against its forces and proxies in the region. Israeli military believes this could take the form of a large-scale attack involving cruise missiles and attack drones, similar to the strike on Saudi Arabia?s Aramco petroleum facility that was attributed to Iran. Earlier this week, PM Netanyahu said Iran intends to attack Israel from Yemen, which may make intercepting such a strike more difficult as the IDF?s intermediate and long-range air defenses are better positioned to shoot down incoming attacks from Israel?s north, rather than from the south. Pray that any Iranian attack will fall back on their own heads and that Israel will be ready to repel every weapon sent against it.
7. Israeli Police Confiscated Thousands of Illegal Weapons Israel Today News Oct 24th
