A few years ago when American troops were in Iraq, I had a vision of our troops being in a very dangerous place between two rivers – the Tigris and Euphrates. I am not a good geography student, so I had to later confirm that there was such a place for my own curiosity.
I saw that our troops were in great danger and began to pray for them. I could see an onslaught of military vehicles and tanks headed across a place and as the vision unfolded, and I prayed, I saw a mighty sandstorm rise up of red sand. It was so thick, the headlights were barely visible through the sand. A couple of days later, it was reported in the news that this actually happened.
This morning, I am reminded of that red sandstorm and that the enemies of Israel are amassing in secret places… tunnels; in the desert; along her borders. There is danger from Russia. There is danger from Syria. There is danger all around Israel. Plans have been put in motion. Dates have been set.
My prayer for Israel today is that God would stir up that red sandstorm once again. May any malevolent forces in the region be overwhelmed with desert sands to the point that the engines of their vehicles be choked out, their weaponry lose its accuracy and implode, the forces coming against them be brought to total disarray and brought to confusion. May the enemies of Israel turn on each other. May the megalomaniacs who have formed an alliance against Israel devour each other in high places and be consumed with their own paranoia about their “partners” and alliances against Israel.
May God shelter the believers in Israel and the USA who pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and who do not agree with political schemes to destroy God’s people and the nation He has established. May God expose the lies and deceitfulness of all international leaders. May the truth prevail in every situation.
