(Netanya, Israel) — We urgently need Christians around the world to pray for peace and to mobilize your family, friends and churches to pray and fast. The situation here is rapidly going from bad to worse. It is nearly midnight here, and the battle between Hamas and Israel has been intensifying hour by hour throughout the day. Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian terror organizations are firing rockets, missiles and mortars at innocent civilians in Israel, along the southern border. Each act is a war crime. The terrorists are also firing from behind innocent civilians in Gaza, often from hospitals, mosques and schools. Thus, each act is actually two war crimes. In just the past several hours, the terrorists have fired more 50 times at Israel. That’s more than 100 war crimes. Since Saturday, they have fired at Israeli civilians more than 200 times. That’s more than 400 war crimes. Yet the world is paying very little attention and doing little to stop the terrorist attacks. Israel, therefore, is moving swiftly to defend herself.
Please pray for the Lord to intervene and stop the violence. Pray for the Lord to protect and comfort those injured and traumatized on both sides, Jews and Arabs. Please pray for the followers of Jesus Christ here to be brave and courageous to humbly serve those in need and provide humanitarian relief as needed.

I saw the video of the pale green horse shortly after it happened. They never could prove it was faked or doctored. It was amazing, the spirit in Perry Stone’s video is also amazing. I believe in spirits, and I believe we’re going to see alot more supernatural happenings and spirits. Satan is indeed alive and well. Thanks for sharing with everyone.
You’re welcome! Check out the post i made on it. There is one in japan too..and at a distant shot, the two news reporters see it running quite a distance. The red fiery horse one is for real, as the image, I believe, was originally from nasa.
I went to You Tube since this one didn’t work and found:
Perry Stone aligning with Satan 1, 2, and up to 6.
Is this the one you are talking about since it won’t allow me to see it on here?
That’s it. I posted it here too..the one that works 🙂
Jericho and Antony are dear friends.
They just need to get it over with. Decades and decades of negotiations and peace talks have not worked and will NEVER work.
They are being emboldened by Syria’s near collapse and Jordon’s new found friends The Muslim Brotherhood who has been putting pressure on King Abdullah II, are you noticing the laws that are being replaced by Shari’a law by the day and woman are seeing the brunt of it, eventually they will either kill or exile him, they will prefer killing off any remnants of hierarchy.
Lebanon has always been weak and has been in the deal making process with Hamas and Hezbollah since they leveled much of Hezbollah’s enclaves back in 2010. They aren’t far off from being castrated either.
With Egypt, Libya, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon enclosing them completely off, we may just be in the beginning birth pangs to the end times.
God bless you Jericho. In my opinion, we’ve bee in them now, at least this year. I feel so sorry and am praying for all of the people…saved and unsaved, good and bad alike. We are no more than pawns of Satan…play toys…chess peices in a war between he and God. Everyone in the end is going to know how they were used…and then it will be too late. Thank you so much for leaving your comment..and again, God bless you and you family!
I believe Obama brought in that era of evil and agree with you, we have already seen the beginning of this, I believe, when we turned our backs on YHVH in 2007 as a Nation and again this election with our own candidate as a people.
Christians are mistaken when they believe YHVH and Yeshua to be all tolerant of these betrayals to him and his son. Every sin is his is to bear, how much longer do they believe he will tolerate and bear what most surlily cannot be tolerated any longer.
Like you, I do pray for us all, mostly for the unsaved, YHVH has put it in their hearts to know all these things, and they had better open their eyes to them, or be lost forever to hell.
Over half of the American population and our very own government have betrayed our holy YHVH and deny him and our precious Yeshua. I believe our comeuppance is at hand and we Christian’s must fight to the bitter end, it has to do with more of what we do, than what we say from here on out, and we had better do all we can to warn these folks, it has always been about the lost, and it will be so to the end of times also?
Amen! Do you live in the USA? I wish you were my neighbor! Actually, there are a lot of people on here, I wish we all took residence in one huge neighborhood..we’d have a Holy Spirit street party going on! LOL! Read my comment on this post here: https://lynleahz.com/2012/11/14/hamas-says-israel-has-opened-the-gates-of-hell-and-warns-of-massive-retaliation-reports-of-possible-idf-ground-invasion-of-gaza/ It is the long one that starts with “AMEN”. You will see it right away…and you might want to check out the link I provided. I think it explains a lot. Also of interest for you, the Lord gave me several words this year..when u have time: https://lynleahz.com/2012/07/01/an-urgent-prophetic-warning-from-god-given-me-june-29-2012/ That one was a few months ago during a power outage. Next, https://lynleahz.com/2012/11/03/genesis-123-we-are-one-body/ He gave me that one last week. Finally, https://lynleahz.com/2012/09/25/the-gift-hear-what-the-lord-said-today/ Just a month or so ago. God bless you!
Bless you Lyn
Yes Mam, Born out of the Appalachians in NC and raised in and about that area for 13 years and in SC since 1972, Poppa was a career Marine. LOL, that would be one big Street party aye? And no one would be arrested, that’s what the South is for though, praise YHVH that we and some of our Northwest brothers and sister see as we do, Wyoming and Montana, the Dakota’s and along our Midwest are strong bible belt champions and we seen that appear this election in denying the Devils anointed one. Upaces by the way is my mentor, what a great Patriotic champion she is. Glad she led me here…
God’s Speed Lyn and thanks for the ;inks, will give em a peek see!
Well upaces is a great gal! God bles you UPACES for leading Jericho777 here! God bless both of you! There are so many here that I wish we were all in the same town..I guess we’ll all be together sometime soon for all of eternity! Praise the Lord!
Well, if we’re in each others hearts and thoughts, that makes us closer than most are, who knows, we may just get chased into each others backyard soon enough LOL, YHVH has a grand plan and going out in a flash is just one of the many Christian benefits we have of being his Saints and Soldier…
That’s right. I think that day is closer than it seems. On a different note, I know a bunch of people who do not know one another who have all been having visions of warning…pale horses..and closer than we think..and the call to prayer and readiness.
I had to Google it…there was an article about a year ago about the Pale Rider Showing Up In Egypt:
A mysterious, pale green figure seen in televised news coverage of the Egyptian riots has prompted some viewers to ask, “Could this be the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse?”
Perry stone has a video, toward the end, that shows what I believe you are talking about. I don’t believe it was the rider. The one I saw clearly was said to be Satan himself…he is mimicking the motions of the Islamic men cutting themselves during a festival they have every year where they go up to the mountain and cut themselves. This pale thing in a robe can be seen mimicking a gashing/slashing motion with a sword. I will post the video here for you..it is near the end.
You, by the way, will definitely want to watch this video if you’ve never seen it. It blew me away! He has connections!
Watch this on youtube…they removed the full version and have it in parts now. This is PART ONE. You will have to see ALL parts!
Awww, it says the “video is no longer available.”
I’ll go to You Tube and see if I can find it.
Oh I found it..and more! I found one that happened around the same time, shortly after, in China during the horrible earthquake that happened! Go look at the post (the pale green rider) There are two videos. The china one shows it from far away trotting all over the place too!
Shared on facebook. Praying for Israel.
Will make sure that this goes viral for Prayers.
I fixed it! That is the first one…they have it in parts now…but wait a minute..the part I am talking about is right here in this one at 9 min and 30 seconds. Forward to there.
Then, when u have time, go back up to the one I originally posted that was removed…it is part one to this entire thing. There are 6 parts..you have to watch all of them eventually!
I saw that! This is very exciting that there are so many…..We were just talking about this in my inbox…I have friends over tonight “IN MY INBOX” talking LOL.
