Israel Update

“My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.” Ps 62:7

LAND DAY AND GLOBAL MARCH TO JERUSALEM A TICKING BOMB: Friday, March 30, is a volatile and potentially violent day for the Jewish State. Tens of thousands of Israel-haters will be participating in a massive global march on Israel’s borders and Jerusalem. The onslaught has been months in the planning by Palestinians, fellow anti-Israel Arabs and supporters of Jihad groups and activities, including the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran.

Terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas are among the ranks of those who will be attempting to descend upon Judaism’s holy capital - Jerusalem, claiming it is a possession of Islam, a Muslim city called Al-quds. Marches are planned from Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and from within the Palestinian Authority-controlled territories. Simultaneously, thousands of Palestinians are planning to march towards different checkpoints from various Palestinian held territories. Organizers and leaders of Land Day events and the Global March to Jerusalem have promised this Friday’s demonstrations will be non-violent, but take a look at the array of groups, societies and sponsors behind the events. When have such leagues ever refrained from violence or maintained reason in getting their message across regarding the Jewish state?

So-called peaceful marches, protests and activities have all the elements in place to turn into a full scale disaster on Friday, March 30. Understandably, there is no way Israel can allow the huge number of foreign marchers to actually reach Jerusalem. IDF forces are positioned and under orders to prevent any disruptions on, or breaches of, Israel's borders. The forces have been directed to thwart any violations of Israeli sovereignty with minimal injuries to the protesters, if they do approach the border. The Vision for Israel team calls upon faithful intercessors globally to remember this day in prayer and to target spirits of violence and terror from achieving their aims.

Blessings from Israel 

Barry Segal with the Editorial Staff 


As international speakers and messengers of the Good News through music, Barry and Batya Segal are at the forefront of what God is doing in the present day nation of Israel. With strong ties in both the nations and Jerusalem, the Segals are weaving the deepest roots of our biblical heritage together with the fresh Spirit-filled worship of today to create their rich harmony of Scripture and song.

The Segals have a vast vision for God's purposes in the nations and to the people of Israel. In fact, their longing to help rebuild Israel both spiritually and physically inspired them to pioneer the non-profit charity organization, Vision for Israel and The Joseph Storehouse. This arm of their ministry focuses on assisting the poor and needy, widows and orphans, and reaching out to the new Jewish immigrants coming into the land of Israel. Vision 's most challenging project to date is "The Joseph Storehouse?", humanitarian aid center, located in the hills of Jerusalem. The Joseph Storehouse functions as a channel of blessing to all of Israel, Jewish and Arab, through the gathering and distribution of emergency medical supplies, food, clothing, and other basic life necessities.
