"No longer will violence (Hamas) be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation (YESHUA) and your gates Praise." Isaiah 60:18
The prophetic meaning of restoring Gaza to Israel starts with the fact that Gaza is actually pronounced as "Aza" in Hebrew. Aza starts with the letter Ayin, which means "eye" in Hebrew.
Why is this significant?
Firstly, this means that prophetically speaking, just as Israel has entered into a new season by taking over Aza and is now in the process of bringing it back into Israel's control, this is a physical representation of what is happening in the spiritual realm, with Israel entering into a new season where their spiritual eyes are being opened, in a more profound way! Many are now inquiring about YESHUA in a much more serious manner than ever before!
Secondly, as shown on the map, the Name of YESHUA in Hebrew, is also an acronym for the entire Land that was originally promised to our Forefathers:
YE, for YEHUDA: Representing the area of Judea
SH, for SHOMRON: Representing the area of Samaria
VE, is Hebrew for "and" or "&", which on its own, makes the sound of "U"
A, for AZA: Representing the area of Gaza
When we put all of these letters together, they spell YESHUA! And YESHUA means SALVATION in Hebrew!
(This Hebraic Messianic acronym was discovered by Ariel Cohen)
25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, 26 and in this way all Israel will be saved.
As it is written:
“The deliverer will come from Zion; He will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins.” Romans 11:25-27
The biggest issue right now, is that there needs to be an act of repentance in the hearts of the Jewish people. There needs to be, firstly, a recognition of the fact that Israel needs an atonement for sin, and secondly, an acceptance of the Redemptive work of YESHUA on the cross, to pay for their sins!
We need to intercede and repent on behalf of Israel at this time. Not only for those living in the Land, but also on behalf of the 10 lost tribes, the lost sheep of the House of Israel scattered throughout the nations, in the Diaspora.
We call forth an AWAKENING to come upon them, the LIGHT of MESSIAH YESHUA piercing through the partial blindness and opening up their EYES, causing them to receive the revelation of MESSIAH YESHUA!
The Prophet Daniel sought the LORD and repented on behalf of his people.
We can use this example of Daniel's prayer as a guide, in order to repent on behalf of Israel, standing in the gap for the Nation, which is the apple of ADONAI'S Eye:
4 "I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
“Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, 5we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. 6We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.
7“Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. 8We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, Lord, because we have sinned against you. 9The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; 10we have not obeyed the Lord our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. 11All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you.
“Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. 12You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing on us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. 13Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come on us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. 14The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.
15“Now, Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. 16Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us.
17“Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. 18Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”
In YESHUA'S MIGHTY NAME, AMEN!
WATCHMEN ON THE WALLS FOR ISRAEL!!
Dear friends, when you pray for Israel, pray the scriptures.
Here are several Scriptures you can proclaim on behalf of Israel:
Jeremiah 31:10 "He who scattered Israel is gathering him, and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock."
Psalm 129:5–6 "Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion. Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up."
Psalm 55:9a "Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues!"
Psalm 125:3a "The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous . . ."
1 Samuel 12:22 "For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make Israel His people."
Psalm 33:8–12 "Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, And the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance."
Psalm 17:7–9 "Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You from those who rise up against them. Keep Israel as the apple of Your eye; Hide them under the shadow of Your wings, From the wicked who oppress them, From their deadly enemies who surround them."
Psalm 124 “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,” Let Israel now say—“If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, When men rose up against us, Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their wrath was kindled against us; Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have swept over our soul; Then the swollen waters would have swept over our soul.” Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth."
Thank you for your commitment in keeping Israel in your prayers!
“But Moses said to the people, “Don’t be afraid! Stand still, and see the salvation of Adonai, which He will perform for you today. You have seen the Egyptians today, but you will never see them again, ever!” Exodus 14:13
