Jim Goll: Pray for the Salvation
The 700 Club
-- The Mordecai Calling
Recently Jim woke up in the middle of the night and heard the
voice of the Lord say, "You must pray for the salvation of
Israel." Jim says that the voice was clear and had a sense
of urgency. "We are all aware of the escalation of violence
in the Middle East," says Jim, "but this word cut to
the core of all the political issues." As in all wars, peoples
lives are being lost on both sides. However, we do not wrestle
again flesh and blood, but against the powers of darkness.
"Our intercessory battle is against the demonic price of
Persia, fueled by the spirit of antichrist and anti-Semitism,
which has always hated Jewish people. We must realize that the
goal of Islam is not to stop until the national entity of Israel
is destroyed," says Jim.
On Easter 1999, Jim heard from the Lord that "the hunters"
would be released in 18 months. Todays present violence
began a week short of 18 months later and has now already lasted
for 18 months. On the morning of the terrorist attacks in September,
Jim says the voice of the Lord came to him saying, "The hunters
have just been released." Jim did not know what this was
in reference to until he turned on the TV and saw the attacks.
Jim says there are two things we must pray for:
- Pray for protection. New York City is the largest Jewish city
in the world. "Is it any wonder that New York City is called
the Big Apple when Zechariah 2:8 declares that Israel is the
"apple of Gods eye"?
- The salvation of Israel. No man can come to the Father except
through the Son. Pray that the blinders fall off the Jewish
peoples eyes so they may behold the beauty of the Lord
and call out to Him to save them.
The Mordecai Calling
Jim says there is a dark spirit of anti-Semitism, or what may
be called "the spirit of Haman," named after the man
who plotted to exterminate the Jewish people in the book of Esther.
"This ancient spirit of genocide still lives," says
Jim. "It yields only to the power of God, and that power
can only be released by a people who pray, fast and put themselves
at risk for the sake of His covenant people." Esther, tutored
by her cousin Mordecai, seized the moment through prayer and fasting,
launching an all-out appeal to the king for the deliverance of
the Jews from their enemy. Esther was anointed to intervene, but
she had to walk in cooperation with Mordecai, the spiritual authority
God placed in her life. It is the responsibility of this generation
to step forward and prepare Esther (the Church) for her greatest
hour of selfless intercession for Jewish people.
Jim believes the spirit of Haman has loosed a fresh plot to destroy
Jews today and believes God is seeking Mordecais and Esthers to
step forward. "God is offering an opportunity for the Body
of Christ to arise," says Jim. "A window of opportunity
has opened, enabling the Church to rewrite history before the
throne of God!"
Jim believes this is a more dangerous time for Jews than in Hitlers
era. Some of the nations that were once part of the Communist
empire are now in the hands of radical Muslim leaders. "They
have the potential to become virtual powder kegs of violence against
the Jewish people," says Jim.
