We have been waiting on the Father for Israel and looking into their news and praying for them, as the Holy Spirit asked us to do. I had a vision while praying for them. Pray for Israel. Pray for their health, for their protection, for wisdom, for the softening of their hearts. This is an area in which the angels will help, as described by Silvana in A SEASON OF THE ANGELS. This vision was described by Char Tierney in a Yahoo Conference on April 7, 2008
People can save it and look at the news in Israel for two weeks. Just go and look and ask Jesus about everything happening there.Today is the 7th, so if we look until the 21st and pray for them just whenever you get a chance, go and see what is happening and talk to Jesus about everything. And if He says anything or shows anything, then share it with the rest of us. I will tell you what happened while I was watching a show and praying for them.
I was watching the news on this Internet station broadcast from Israel, and they were talking about an attack that had happened in the Gaza strip and one person was killed. They said that more would have been killed, but Israeli snipers defended and fought off the attack and they talked about the courage of those living in that neighborhood. And I was watching it and I admired them. I admired their fortitude and their camaraderie towards one another and then, I was thinking that it was like it was in the days of Nehemiah when they tried to build the wall in Jerusalem and they had to wear swords as they built. With one hand they built, and with the other they defended and fought off those who tried to stop it so it seemed the same to me. So I thought about how much the Palestinians would love to tear them down and entirely destroy them. And so, as I thought that, I also thought of the fact that only Jesus will (and can) deliver them from that trouble and when I thought of Jesus I looked at them and I was thinking how far would they go to defend?
The Jews in Nehemiah's day were prepared to give their lives and I thought the same is true, they would all die rather than give up their nation. It is like the Alamo, and like the movie "300". They would die to the last man rather than give up Israel as a nation, and I thought, would they defend Jerusalem the same? Then I thought, yes, I think they would. That thought brought me back to Jesus again because we know that Jerusalem will be attacked with nuclear weapons, but Jesus returns to put an end to that warfare. And so I looked at them again with the thought of Jesus and when I looked at them, there in Israel, I saw what looked like a cage around their minds. It looked like a steel (stainless steel) cage with prongs inside. It was like a mesh, with prongs woven together, like a nest or something, but it was a cage around their minds to keep them from thinking deeply of Jesus and of Jesus as the Messiah.
As I looked, the Holy Spirit showed me the cage as though it was like unto a "crown of thorns" - around their minds. How wise He is! What justice after what they put on His Son's head (though we are all responsible) but the cage keeps them from thinking clearly when it comes to Jesus. Then I saw the Father and He reached out to remove it from their minds, and as He reached out, Satan reached out also and as the Father's hand reached their minds, Satan's hand was right behind. The Father's left hand was on the cage, and Satan's right hand was just behind His hand. Then the Father threw back Satan's hand and Satan staggered back. I saw the look on Satan's face and he was shocked. I looked at Satan for a moment, but then I saw angels taking cages off many minds in Israel. And the Holy Spirit wants us to take two weeks and watch the news there, and pray for them and NOT BE religious about what we see, but practical with common sense and let Him show what He thinks and stand by them and with them as we identify by watching, always knowing that the Father is taking off the cages, so we can hope and pray that they will see Jesus.
I looked again at Satan, and I said to him, "Why do you refuse to come face to face with the Father?" and when I said it the Father came behind me and spoke through me, and it was repeated: "Why do you refuse to come face to face with the Father?" Then the Father said to Satan, "Don't you see the cage around you?" and I saw the cage and Satan saw the cage too. Recently I have talked about seeing Satan on the earth, no longer up in the heavenlies but over the earth and I said, by the Holy Spirit, "he can't go back". He (Satan) cannot go back up to where he was because he is now barred. Then I saw the barrier to that, and I saw the barrier at the sides of the earth and the total barrier surrounding Satan was like the cage around the minds of the Israelis. As I looked, Satan looked too and he saw it, he said nothing, but I could see that he saw and knew it was true. Then the Father moved back over, away from behind me, and I could see the Father was speaking to Satan, but I could not see nor hear what was being said. I could see it coming out of the Father, and I said to Jesus, who was there as well, "What is Satan going to do? Run away?" Where would he run? Then I saw a tugging on that which was coming out of the Father by Satan.
It was as though the Father and Satan were connected by what was coming out from the Father and going to Satan, without words. Satan was tugging and I said, "He is trying the Father's strength!!" And he was. Then I said to Satan, "He is the Creator of strength! There was no strength until God made it" and Satan stopped tugging and of course I had no idea what to say so I just stood and waited. I saw the Father go to an Israeli to take off the cage from his mind, and the Father stooped down to pick the man up. The Father's hands were sure and strong, and He was gentle as He lifted the man as you would a child.
The Father told me to go and write to Mercy Ciniraj about taking the picture to the Wailing Wall. He said to write to her as though Paul was healed. So I went to the other computer because I did not have her email on my laptop and when I got to the main computer, there was an email from her saying that Paul was healed! (Note: And now, Mercy writes to say that she and Paul are going to Jerusalem from May 1-9, 2008 and they will take the picture of Jesus and put it in the Wailing Wall, wrapped in tissue, as people do when they leave a prayer request. And Jesus will be there!)
Before I even finished reading the email from Mercy, I ran in to tell Silvana. I woke her up - it was 8 am - and told her that Jesus had done it - He had healed Paul - and we rejoiced! Then I told her about the things I had seen about Satan, and she commented about Satan liking to cut off heads, as we know he does, first because Jesus is the Head, and second because of the minds of the people. Then I saw, when she said that, that Satan wanted to be the head, but Jesus is the heart of the Father while Satan is more about the mind, and the head is the heart, not the mind. The Spirit leads and Silvana said, the mind can lead the spirit or the spirit can lead the mind. We follow the Holy Spirit with our spirit and our minds follow, and Jesus leads, and He is the heart – He cares. He is the exact representation of the Father who so loved the whole world that He gave His Son.
On April 19, Silvana was in the Spirit and she was talking about Israel. She said there are three problems that the Father sees with Israel today:
1. Rebellion - their ongoing rebellion that has caused them to reject Jesus for 2000 years. They go so far in rejecting Him that they put people out of the congregation for believing in Him. They go further to reject Jesus than even the Muslims, who believe that Jesus is a prophet. The Jews raise their children to reject Jesus. Don't they remember how Abraham was sent up the mountain to offer his son as a sacrifice, and the Father said, "I WILL PROVIDE". This was because the Father was going to send His own Son. Since the Jews ally themselves with the enemy so strongly by rejecting the Father's Son, how shall the Father reach them?
2. Judgment - they judge the Father for the Messiah that He sent, and reject Jesus, or they judge God for not sending one, (which is what they think) and they also judge God for allowing the Holocaust. But they don't talk to Him and hear what He has to say about any of this: they just judge Him.
3. Love of the world - some Jews wish that they were not Jews at all. They are tired of being rejected by the world. They want to fit in, to be received, so they have lost their desire to be God's chosen people.
The other day while talking about Israel, Silvana spoke to Moses, who is in the Cloud of Witnesses. She said, "What would you say to Israel today, Moses?" Then today, while watching a court case on TV about a Muslim who shot five Jewish women, killing one, Silvana saw Moses. She saw the woman who had been killed by this wretched murderer and she wondered, what happens now with her? Then, in the Spirit, she saw the woman ascending, and she saw Moses before the woman. In Moses' hand was a staff, and the staff was the shape of a cross. So, when the Jews leave this earth, that is what they are confronted with: Moses and the cross. The shock to them is almost overwhelming. (Click here for a post on Silvana's blog about what she saw.)
About a week ago, I saw King David in the Cloud of Witnesses. I was reading on an Israeli news site and they mentioned King David. But I know that David loves Jesus, and I looked up and saw him. David would not and does not approve of their rejection of Jesus. He would say to them today, "Come to Jesus. Don't reject Him."
Here is a prophecy called A NEW PSALM OF DAVID from Silvana Lupetti, prophet of the Father in the United States.
A NEW PSALM OF DAVID - August 3, 2006:
Just recently I saw the Cloud of Witnesses gathered together. Someone was singing and the Cloud of Witnesses were listening, as were the angels. I saw who was singing. It was David, with Isaiah and Jeremiah on either side of him. David was singing a new psalm. Then today, in a rush I heard the words. Here they are:
There is a land called Israel
The land of the Father's heart
The Father's heart is given to you
And nailed to the tree
If you, the children of Abraham,
Will come to the Father's heart
Messiah and friend will gather you up
In His arms that are open to you.
His heart is beating for his chosen ones
He wept for Jerusalem
And promised a land would be given
To the apple of His eye.
And now the land is Jesus Himself
The Messiah who was foretold
And I, David, am singing my song
With the blood of the Lamb upon me
Come to Him who waits for you
My song is my appeal
And make the journey through the cross
To the land of the Father's heart.
Prophet of the Father in the United States

A note from Therese Cooper: While I was reading what is written here, when I got to the part that says, "so we hope and pray they will see Jesus" , (in the fourth paragraph under the heading Yahoo Conference), I saw something in the Spirit: suddenly I saw time move forward. I saw a young Jewish girl sitting in a chair and she was smiling. She was in her late teens or early twenty's, and she knew Jesus was the Messiah. Then I looked and saw all the Jews, and they knew Jesus was the Messiah. They were with Him, and heard Him speak to them, and they acted on what He said. They were happy and healthy in their spirits.
