Amir Tsarfati: None of These Realities Change God’s Promise to Israel

Shalom from the Promised Land –

Yes. Things are escalating in the north. Yes, we have political turmoil. Yes, my region of the world is chaotic. However, none of these realties change the fact that the promises of God are sure. God initiated my blessed country through Abraham. He rescued it through Moses. He restored in through Joshua. He preserved it through David. He rebirthed it from the ashes of the Holocaust, and He’s going to do an amazing work in my people in the future, just as He promised through the prophets and New Testament authors.

Romans 11:25-27
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: 

“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”

On Tuesday, I delivered an important MidEast update from CONNECT, which was only my second update from the new studio here in Galilee. It is exciting and refreshing to be able to deliver news from this facility on a weekly basis!

As I give you a synopsis of the key events in my region of the world over the last week, I just want to remind you to subscribe to my Telegram channel if you haven’t already. Telegram is where I post real-time news updates concerning Bible prophecy and current events, and it’s the only platform that enables me to be transparent and get the truth out!

The Middle East

Israel’s Internal Circumstances
Tragically, the progressive movement within Israel continues to push on despite our existential threats. These people are ready to bring everything tumbling down with them as long as it means removing Netanyahu from office. First, they capitalized on COVID and the fake trial, then it was the judicial reform, and now it’s the hostages. I feel bad for the families of the hostages. The progressives are sympathizing with the hostages for their own gain and nothing else. They are being used and abused!

If there is something I hope my country has learned from October 7, it is to never underestimate our enemy and overestimate our own capabilities. Just like it’s taking us over eight months in Gaza, Hezbollah won’t go down without a long and painful fight. My hope and prayer are that hostages won’t be part of our war this time! We must make sure Hezbollah doesn’t get the chance to do to us what Hamas did.

War in Gaza
The war rages on as the IDF focuses primarily on Rafah. However, our troops are continuing to eliminate targets in other cities as well. In fact, our soldiers eliminated #4 in the hierarchy of this depraved terrorist group just days ago!

Psalm 94:1
O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongs—
O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth!

Hamas has become accustomed to starting a war, negotiating a ceasefire, begging Gulf countries and the West for money for reconstruction, and then using most of that money to build tunnels and prepare for the next round. Meanwhile, their leaders get richer. The other Palestinians are just useful pawns. That which was shall be no more!

The West Bank
Last night, our soldiers conducted an overnight operation in Jenin wherein one soldier was killed and 16 more were injured after an improvised explosive device (IED) was detonated next to their armored vehicle. When the rescue force arrived, another IED went off.

We continue to operate in the West Bank (Judea & Samaria) on a daily basis.

The Coming War in the North
We’re continuing to exchange strikes with Hezbollah on a day-to-day basis despite there technically being no declaration of war. Moreover, targeted assassinations are becoming a frequent occurrence. Multiple countries around the world have called on their citizens to leave Lebanon immediately. Everyone knows a war is imminent. However, strikes aren’t limited to Lebanon. Israel has also recently targeted Iranian-backed militias in Eastern Syria. If dealing with Hezbollah isn’t enough, we now know that Iran is not afraid to attack us directly. They intend to involve themselves in any war we have with Hezbollah. And they’re not alone in this vow. Their militias in Iraq have vowed to involve themselves as well. Things are getting more prophetic by the day.

Many Christians are asking me what can they do to help. The answer is the same today as it was yesterday and even decades ago – Pray! Things are going to be very tough, rough, ugly, and painful. But since when do the people of God rely on circumstances? We have two promises: 1) That the God of Israel will help Israel and won’t allow it to be annihilated! And 2) That the enemies of Israel once again will be defeated! My prayer is that through the pain, sorrow, and sadness my nation is going through, more and more would lift up their eyes to see that our help comes from the Lord and it’s time to return back to Him. So, in a nutshell, please pray for two things: 1) For God’s victory to be quick and 2) for Israel to have the humility to acknowledge that the victory is from the Lord.

Trouble in the Gulf
The Houthis once again claimed to attack a commercial ship in the Gulf of Aden in addition to carrying out another strike targeting the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Red Sea. This ship has now made its way to the Mediterranean Sea before heading back to the US.

Russian Activity
Following the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un, the two countries made a military agreement just days ago. In the aftermath of this agreement, North Korea now intends to send some of its soldiers to Ukraine to help with Putin’s war.

Happenings Around the World
US apathy and manipulation remains a constant issue for Israel as we seek the end of Hamas. By now, you should be asking yourself, “Why would a country stand in the way of Israel trying to eliminate a terrorist organization that killed 1,400 civilians?” Ironically, the US has vowed to provide any aid we need should we enter into a war with Hezbollah, but we’ll see what happens when rubber meets the road. High-ranking US military personnel have already started to issue a recall on this promise.

The pro-Iranian militias in Iraq carried out a drone attack on the Al-Tanf base of the US military forces on the Syria-Jordan-Iraq border. This is the first attack by the militias against the Americans in nearly five months. You’d think activity like this would force the Biden Administration to see that we’re dealing with the same threats and that its time to stop playing diplomatic games ahead of another election.

Unfortunately, Armenia has now decided to become the ninth country to recognize a Palestinian state. The global deception is clearly continuing to increase.

The Ministry

It’s been an exciting week in the CONNECT studio, as we’ve had the opportunity to facilitate more broadcasts, including my most recent MidEast Update, as well as our second installation of The Anchor Podcast. This episode featured my friend, Dr. Golan Broshi, as we addressed the topic, “Israel: Replaced or Embraced?”. I strongly encourage you to tune in for this unique episode.

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.

Tune in tomorrow, Friday, at 12:00 PM PDT on Facebook & YouTube! Throughout history, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have played a central role in biblical and world affairs. After all, Israel is the only nation ever to have a covenant with God – a covenant concerning them as a people and their land. Following the initiation of this covenant, hatred for them as a people and nation quickly surfaced and exists to this day, even spouting from the mouths of celebrities. What is Judaism? What is Zionism? Why are the two, when paired together, such a driving force for Antisemitism? Join Amir on a tour through biblical and world history as he brings clarity to “Judaism, Zionism, & Antisemitism”.

I can’t thank you enough for your fervent prayers and generous financial gifts that continue to enable us to do what we do and fulfill the ministry that the Lord has entrusted to us. Your prayers fuel what we do on a daily basis. Please continue to pray that God would give us creativity, discernment, and vision in the months ahead. We live in unprecedented times and our desire is to make the most of whatever time is left!

Acts 17:30-31
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.

Awaiting His Return,
