Amir Tsarfati: Christians Around the World Steadfast in Their Support

Shalom from Eilat in Southern Israel –

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – My region of the world never takes a holiday. And it hasn’t been “business as usual” in the Middle East. Things are continuing to escalate. Egypt exchanged fire with the IDF. The IDF has made its way into the heart of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. The Hague revealed its true colors. Europe is recognizing a Palestinian state. What’s next?

While I may not know what tomorrow holds, I remain certain concerning who holds tomorrow.

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.

Despite the darkness of the times we’re living in, I’m encouraged to see the great number of Christians around the world who are steadfast in their support for Israel. From small groups to churches to different ministries, I’ve received countless pictures of believers standing for Israel. Why does it matter? Because it reveals to me that there is a remnant of believers in these last days holding fast to the promises of God from ages ago.

As I begin to dive into the details of several different current events, I want to remind you that the best way to stay up to date regarding world events – especially those impacting Israel – is to subscribe to my Telegram Channel. This is the one-stop shop for my real-time news updates as they unfold in Israel, the Middle East, and throughout the world.

The Middle East

Israel & Hamas
As I mentioned previously, the IDF has made its way into the heart of Rafah – the last major Hamas stronghold in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Tragically, more bodies of Israelis who were killed on October 7 and taken to Gaza continue to be recovered in this city. Being the cowards they are, Hamas leaders are content to dwell in their tunnels presenting the façade that hostages are alive in order to leverage some sort of deal with Israel. Of course, when their strategy fails, they blame Israel for their deaths.

Like the rest of Gaza, the true city of Rafah is based in its hundreds if not thousands of terror tunnels under the city, which the IDF is progressively destroying. Of course, the military is also terminating weapon-storage facilities, rocket-production sites, and more along the way. It’s time for us to put an end to Hamas!

Speaking of Rafah, are you aware that Israel accomplished the safe removal of civilians from the city in a matter of weeks when the Biden Administration said it would take months? While the Biden Administration is screaming, “But the civilians in Rafah…!”, we find rockets and other weapons everywhere we go. It’s safe to say that the opinion of the White House is not held in high esteem these days.

As you probably know by now, the Hague condemned Israel last week for what we’re doing in Rafah. At the end of the day, this is meaningless. Israel will do what we need to do to survive and prevent future terrorist attacks. However, consider the darkness of the hour in which we live, as an international court condemns Israel for protecting its people, ultimately sympathizing with Hamas and terrorism in general! And yes, Hamas praised the decision! Oh, and by the way, yes, Hamas is continuing to kill the people of Gaza. And in case you’re still on the fence concerning UNRWA, it was in the tunnels inside of buildings constructed by UNRWA that the mutilated body of the German-Israeli woman, Shani Louk, was found. UNRWA is corrupt to the core!

As of Wednesday, the IDF obtained full operational control of the Philadelphi Corridor near Rafah. This is extremely significant because Hamas is now completely cut off from all sides. There is no way of escape. There are no incoming resources. As one source put it – This is the beginning of the end of Hamas.

On another note, while tourism in Israel – a very large source of income – continues to be hammered by the ongoing war in the region and threats from the BDS movement, a unique business located next to the Dead Sea is in need of your support. The people at Kedma & Revival Products are friends of mine. All of our tours visit this well-known shop that is popular due to the variety of mineral-based cosmetics it offers – Minerals sourced from the Dead Sea. Please consider supporting them during this difficult time. The provided link includes a special discount at checkout.

In the wake of the deteriorating relations between Israel and Egypt, a very unusual incident occurred between the IDF and the Egyptian army in the Rafah crossing area. Israel is conducting an investigation into the details of the incident, which may have significant political consequences. Basically, Egyptian soldiers opened fire on IDF forces. Ultimately, one Egyptian soldier was killed. I encourage you to watch my breaking news segment regarding this incident!

Lebanon, Syria, & Hezbollah
Israel is continuing to conduct targeted attacks in Lebanon as Hezbollah’s presence thrives in the region. Northern Israel has experienced a host of air raid sirens due to more barrages of rockets being fired from Lebanon over the last week. Sadly, the terrorists successfully caused some damage to homes in the Galilee region. However, it’s almost a daily occurrence that we’re killing Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon.

Our targeted attacks are not isolated to Lebanon, as they’re happening throughout Syria as well. Last night, Israel carried out a dramatic and remote bombing in the Alawite city of Banias on the Syrian coast (north of Tartus near the Russian base in Khmeimim Air Base). Hezbollah trucks were bombed and there are casualties. Make no mistake, while Gaza is the largest terror base on the face of the earth, the largest war is yet to come – and it will be with Hezbollah.

Yemen & the Houthis
The Houthis continue to provoke violence in the region whenever and wherever they can. In the last week, they’ve claimed attacks on ships in various bodies of water, and they’ve even shot down another Reaper Drone belonging to the US military.

In case you forgot, the war between Russia and Ukraine is ongoing. However, there are reports of a proposed ceasefire by Russian President Vladimir Putin pending certain conditions.

Russia has allegedly offered weapons and ammunition to Sudan in exchange for a fueling station to be established in the Red Sea by the Sudanese government. This deal is expected to be signed soon. Sound familiar? Indeed, we live in the days of Ezekiel’s prophecies.

The United States
The $320M dock in Gaza that American taxpayers provided – courtesy of the Biden Administration – was short lived, as it met its end yesterday. The dock began to be dismantled by the waves earlier in the week and finally deteriorated yesterday. What was a terrible idea from its conception resulted in a massive waste of resources in the end. This dock turned out to be an embarrassing metaphor for the current US foreign policy.

All of that said, America should be far more concerned about what’s happening internally. If what’s coming out of DC isn’t telling you everything you need to know, the terrible fruit coming from America’s college campuses ought to do the trick. If Al-Qaeda and the supreme leader of Iran are siding with what’s taking place on your college campuses, it’s a sneak preview into the decline of your empire.

The International Community
Last week, I informed you that a handful of European countries were moving towards recognizing a Palestinian state. Sadly, what was moving last week is a reality this week, as just days ago, Ireland’s & Spain’s governments chose to formally recognize a Palestinian state. I expect that others will follow suit. Personally, I’m curious if they will be recognizing Narnia as well. If that’s not enough, Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Yolanda Diaz called for a genocide of Jews in Israel saying, “We cannot stop. Palestine will be free from the River to the Sea.” Apparently, the Inquisition wasn’t enough.

Thankfully, there are countries like Denmark standing in opposition to this stupidity. Moreover, Greece has motioned to deport any foreign students who participated in anti-Israel protests.

October 7 was so barbaric that it either intimidated the free world into appeasement or inspired others to courage, such as Holland and Argentina. Regrettably, much of the West and Asia simply tried to stop Israel from defending its people from the savagery of the Islamic fascists. In doing so, they revealed their own corruption. And so, the violence continues due to their cowardice. If only the world was united against evil, this war would’ve ended long ago.

The Ministry

Much progress continues to be made here at CONNECT. The studio is nearly complete and we’re now preparing to begin producing a wide variety of broadcasts – something I’m so excited to begin doing. MidEast Updates, CONNECT Round Tables, the Anchor Podcast, Author’s Corner, various interviews, and other installments are in the works! Please continue to pray for us as we prepare, and thank you for your unwavering support up to this very moment.

On another note, I’d like to ask for your prayers regarding a very specific need we have here at the studio, and that’s for an administrative assistant/personal assistant for me. Ideally, this person will be able to speak solid Hebrew and English, but even more importantly, I need for them to be a believer in Yeshua. Please join me in asking God to help meet this need.

It is easy to get discouraged as we look at the world around us, but as Christians, we are not to be a people of fear or despair. Instead, we have been called by God to a mission – the Great Commission. I want to challenge you to keep your eyes upward towards Christ as you run the race that is set before you! Tune in for my teaching, “Reaching the Finish Line”, on Friday at 12:00 PM PDT.

In the days ahead, I will air an unfiltered video of the October 7th events. The atrocities are very difficult to watch and so graphic that no social media platform will ever allow me to show this content. That is exactly what the deniers are banking on! In preparation, there are two ways you can help me: 1) Please send my telegram channel to everyone you know! 2) Please be there to watch and then forward the video! Here is a link to my telegram channel for you to share with others:

I want to encourage you to monitor our Facebook page and YouTube channel for the consistent release of short, informational videos over the next two weeks. These videos will cover a variety of topics from Zionism to the Palestinians to the third temple to the UN and more, and they’re perfect for sharing with others in order to provide a fact-based and Scripture-driven perspective on such relevant topics! The most effective way to be updated whenever we share a new video is to subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking the “subscribe” button. The most recent video can be found HERE.

Discovering Daniel is now available in the Behold Israel Shop! Moreover, the study guide that accompanies this bestseller is also available for order. I am so excited for this book to fall into the hands of believers and unbelievers alike. Understanding the Old Testament is the key to making sense of the New Testament. What Daniel foretells; Revelation fulfills. I believe you’ll find this new book to be a very helpful resource in your biblical studies.

Be sure to check out our Behold Israel Store, as we offer a handful of spiritually valuable resources, including books, Bible stuffers, and more! We’ve recently added two new Bible stuffers entitled, “Choose Life”, and “Who Has the Right to the Land of Israel?”. We designed these to be easy handouts to help equip people with the gospel and the truth about Israel!

Things Are Falling into Place

While the events of Bible prophecy ought not surprise us when they come to pass, there’s no question that it’s a rather surreal thing to live through them. And indeed, we live times of great biblical proportion. As I look at the events unfolding in Israel and the Middle East and I see the rapid decline of the western world – namely, America – and so much more, I’m reminded of what God said to the prophet Isaiah. He’s declared all things. He knows all things before they take place. His perfect plan will stand. While so much seems to be spiraling out of control, the reality is that things are only falling into place.

Isaiah 46:9-10
Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure…’

Awaiting His Return,

Amir Tsarfati
