Update from the Pierce’s in Israel

Dear Friends of Israel:

Thank you so much for your continued prayers for the volatile situation in Jerusalem and across Israel. As you can read below, Daniel and Amber have seen the Lord’s hand of protection in so many ways. Join with them in declaring Psalm 121.

Also, please begin praying for their trip to India. Next week they will be joining Apostle Trevor Baker and a team from England to minister in the northeast region of that nation. Last year, I was privileged to minister, along with Trevor, in that region, and Daniel and Amber accompanied me. They came away with such a burden for that people and land, and have looked forward to returning. Please pray for safety in their travel, as well as for the Lord to anoint them and the team for signs, wonders, miracles, and salvation of the lost.

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce

I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have been praying for us this week. Even in the midst of daily rioting and terrorist attacks, God has been with our family and continues to supernaturally protect many in Israel. Over the last week, we have seen several situations in which many people could have been killed, but the enemy’s plans were exposed and thwarted without the loss of innocent life. Yesterday morning, two terrorists with knives tried to board a school bus in Jerusalem but were stopped by the quick actions of nearby civilians. Over the last several days, there have been at least ten other incidents in which terrorists were discovered and neutralized before carrying out stabbing attacks. A terrorist cell in Hebron was also arrested with explosives and cash in their possession, suggesting that a bombing was imminent.  While the nation feels like a powder keg, and tensions are tangible, it is clear that the hand of God saves!

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121: 1-8

Please continue to pray for all of Israel that peace will come and God’s will be done.

On to India!
Next Tuesday (October 27), we will join Apostle Trevor Baker in India for crusade meetings. We have looked forward to this time for quite some time, and God is giving us many dreams and encouragement for this trip. Please pray for our family as we travel and minister.

Shabbat shalom,
Pierce Family

ADONAI SABAOTH, Lord of the Armies: An update from Jerusalem during a time of terror and overcoming!

Two days ago, I was on the way to get our kids from school when around thirty police cars and ambulances passed me with their lights and sirens screaming! All of these emergency vehicles were responding to the latest stabbing in a string of terrorist attacks that have become a daily occurrence here in Jerusalem.

The current round of violence started several weeks ago with rioting at the Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque. Unrest quickly spread across the West Bank and into several Israeli cities.

Yesterday morning, two terrorists boarded a city buss in Jerusalem and proceeded to shoot several passengers. Along with the buss attack, a third terrorist rammed his car into a group of people who were waiting at a bus stop in another neighborhood. He then jumped out of the car and stabbed several more people before being shot by an armed civilian. After the attacks, we received a call informing us that our kid’s school would be on lockdown due to the security situation in the city. Yesterday was a long day; we experienced a sense of peace in the evening after the whole family made it home.

Netanyahu convened an emergency meeting yesterday afternoon to address:

the situation and implement new security measures. The city of Jerusalem now has several thousand police and military personnel patrolling the streets. There is also some talk about installing security checkpoints between East and West Jerusalem as terrorists from East Jerusalem have been involved in most of the recent attacks.

We will continue to keep you updated on unfolding events. Pleas keep our family in your prayers, and continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the rest of Israel! Pleas pray that God will expose every plan of the enemy and bring deceitful hidden agendas into the light. Pray that demonic forces behind this violence would be sealed up and their power stripped from them. Pray for a release of supernatural strategy over our leaders to bring peace. Pray that the international community will experience a quickening to the truth surrounding current events in Israel. Pray that God would make his ways known to us and pour out his presence in times of trouble.

 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is He, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty-He is the King of glory.  (Psalm 24:8-10)  

Blessings,

A YEAR FOR MIRACLES

Dear Friends of Israel:

Thank you so much for your prayers for Daniel and Amber throughout this Feast season. Beginning with the worship gathering they hosted just before Rosh Hashanah through Simchat Torah, they have been busy hosting many who have traveled to Jerusalem. Even amidst the unrest that is occurring in the Middle East, I love what they are hearing about a time for miracles. We are also sensing a powerful move of Holy Spirit in our gatherings. Do not fear 5776! The best is yet ahead!

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce

Shalom,

The last time you heard from us was right after our worship gathering on September 10th. Since then, we jumped into the holiday’s full swing, and the kids have been out of school for almost two weeks now. We celebrated with many leaders and friends, and spent a lot of time in our Sukkah this week. We were also blessed to spend some down time with Mike and Cindy Jacobs, and Myles and Katherine Weiss filmed several shows in our kitchen. Lily had the opportunity to be Esther for one of their shows which will air in the future on Zola Levitt Presents. Just a few days ago, we had a powerful time of prayer and connecting with a large tour from Indonesia. This was also a highlight for Lily, as she stepped into pray with the group and blew the shofar over the city.

Even as tensions stir in Israel and the Headlines this morning read. IS THIS THE THIRD INTIFADA? We still feel encouraged for the year to come.

A few days before Rosh Hashannah began, I had a dream that God came and sat down next to me. I asked Him why everyone was scared of the year to come.  He told me that people forget very quickly that He created the whole earth in just 7 days and that He can change a life or a circumstance in just a moment.  He also told me that He would be doing more miracles this year than we have seen in the past and that He was really going to show us His glory in a huge way. I’m encouraged even as we are watching what could be the beginning of the 3rd Intifada.

Update from Daniel on the Middle East and Israel
On September 30th, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas made a long speech in front of the UN assembly in an attempt to once again lay the groundwork for negotiations on the two state solution.  After the speech concluded the UN raised the Palestinian flag in an act of recognition for “Palestine” which was recently upgraded to “non-member observer state” by the United Nations.  As Abbas concluded his address at the UN, masked Fata gunmen flooded the streets in several West Bank cities and began firing weapons into the air in celebration.

Over the last two weeks, there have been numerous terrorist attacks across the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Last week, one of our neighbors was returning from business in Hebron when his car was mobbed and stoned by masked men.

Fortunately, he sustained only minor injuries. Last night there were two separate stabbing attacks in the Old City of Jerusalem leaving at least four people dead and several more injured. As things unfold, Israel has called emergency security meetings to evaluate the situation.

As Amber mentioned earlier, we feel that in this year we will experience some turbulent times but God will also work in a mighty way, in this season!

India Trip
Over the next two weeks, we will be preparing to travel to India with Trevor Baker and take part in ministry. We are very excited to be a part of this trip and have great expectation for everything God has in store for India this year. Please pray that God will cover us in our travels and that we would bear witness to the creative miracles that India has become known for. We pray that God continue to pour out His provision of miracles in that land! We are grateful that God is speaking of great miracles over the entire earth! Know and believe that God is doing great miracles on your behalf. Tonight begins the holiday of Simchat Torah. This is the holiday where we rejoice in the Word and begin reading from the very beginning of the book of Genesis again.

Blessings,

Daniel and Amber Pierce
