What is Happening at IHOP-KC is a Demonic Assault that Impacts Prayer for Israel

 I often feel like the voice crying in the wilderness on this one and everyone else seems to be baying for Mike Bickle's blood. 

The other day I was listening to the IHOP singers and one of them started a 'chant' personalizing that she was "the apple of God's eye." I happened to catch her give one of the musicians a mischievous eye and smile when she repeated it and others picked it up. Maybe it is just her way, but it  troubled me and seemed purposeful - a knowing "appropriation" of a uniquely specific God-to-Israel verse. The Church has not replaced Israel as the apple of God's eye. Church people are no more worthy of God's love and loyalty than Israel. 

It disturbed me seeing that in one of my most favorite musical teams at IHOP, but this is an overwhelmingly young congregation. They did not come to Kansas City untouched by the indoctrination of what their peers believe about Israel. Every young congregation needs to look at IHOP-KC as a cautionary tale: if young people are not rooted and grounded in God's intentions and plans for Israel and how they fit in, a coup may be waiting in the wings. Some of the ideas of equality and social justice are not rooted and grounded in God's Word at all.

I know that the apple of God's eye can include all followers of Jesus who have been grafted in, however, many do not realize that is because we Christians have become the "commonwealth of Israel." It is only those Christians who embrace Israel who are going to go on into "the fullness" of spiritual maturity to the identification by God of being called "Zion" along with the "one new man" Messianic believers.  I honestly do not think that embrace is a mere elective; it will be the ultimate litmus test of our caring about God's way or our way.

As far as Israel is concerned, I don't consider what is happening at IHOP-KC a distraction, but a pointed indicator of the warfare ahead for standing with Israel as a Christian. It is not only an indicator, but the first major case of a hostile take-down of a ministry that was raised up for such a time as this to watch over worldwide prayers being made on Israel's behalf to the throne of God. 

That is why God gave Mike Bickle a dual mandate for 24/7 prayer and worship houses network to ultimately pray for Israel's salvation in such a time as this. The heat is on and the work of the enemy has benched Bickle and sidelined the vision of IHOP-KC. If you took a poll at IHOP-KC and alumni, I believe it would show overwhelming that they believe IHOP-KC could continue to thrive as a 24/7 prayer and worship house network WITHOUT praying for Israel except as a token gesture. But that is not the vision God gave when establishing it. 

In the past week Jeremiah Johnson published a dream he had about Mike Bickle being "the pope" of 24/7 prayer houses. In the dream God gave JJ a prophetic word telling how God was taking Mike's 'pope crown' away, throwing it down and breaking it and JJ was to distribute it out pieces of it to other prophets. Johnson named a few. Then he said he gave a piece of Mike's "crown" to the believers in Asia and they would be the ones that carried the ISRAEL MANDATE. That is so against what God's WORD says about the mandate to pray for Israel being ALL Christians in ALL nations!

God never set up Mike Bickle as "the pope" of the work he was called by God to build, and he sure never acted like "the pope" in the eyes of those of us who watched him over the years. I am reminded suddenly of the rebellion of Korah who led a rebellion against Moses and Aaron, accusing them of exalting themselves above the congregation of the Lord ( Numbers 16:1-3 ). BEWARE what you accuse Bickle of. Tread carefully. 

Mike's rollout of the fasting and prayer for Israel and for the worldwide intercessors who would be praying for Israel at the end of May 2023 was with all humility. In honesty, much of what has come out from the prophets smacks of envy to me. There is always a willingness to assume the worst about someone we feel competitive against. 

I know that many are thinking, well what do you do about the accusations of sexual impropriety against Mike Bickle, just give him a pass? No. But I do recognize that ALL OF THE ACCUSATIONS four months later are still just accusations even though most of the charismatic world has already accepted all the accusations as true, and dismissed Mike Bickle without so much as even knowing, much less questioning his accusers.

This is why God calls us judge all matters His way - not our own way, and not the world's way! Because His way is measured, calm and just - it does not spiral into judging matters based on our emotional ties with someone, like an accuser. 

We are instructed by God that we HAVE TO judge matters without "respect of persons" - without strong emotional ties that do not allow us to judge without prejudice or bias; and on the basis of facts, not accusations alone. Anyone can make accusations for any number of reasons, but facts are the high standard to convict anyone of anything justly. Family members make terrible investigators, prosecutors, judges and juries because they are too clouded with emotion to focus only on facts. 

I have watched the accusations made against Mike Bickle quickly grow into being a serial "predator" who "manipulated using prophecy" to "groom" young women for "future forbidden relationships" to being the spiritual world's version of Jeffrey Epstein, allowing other sexual predators a place to pick out victims. No evidence, just accusations that are being hidden from the rest of us. I have seen prophets pontificating on how he was always the spiritual offspring of other older prophets who were tied with IHOP early on who had their own sexual sins. What bitter, envious, wrong-spirited accusations against Mike Bickle! 

It has been a full on demonic assault against him. It may not be a human conspiracy, but it sure is a demonic conspiracy. Mike Bickle carried a mantle for raising up 24/7 prayer and it was for the purpose of creating WORLDWIDE PRAYER HOUSES THAT WOULD BE ENGAGED IN THE PRAYER FOR ISRAEL MANDATE. Never has Israel needed worldwide prayers more than now. 

This attack on Mike Bickle began to unfold on the very month - March - when Bickle first shared his vision for the 21-days of prayer for Israel's salvation to engage the worldwide intercessors who would be meeting in Jerusalem at the end of May to pray for Israel. Most of that second group that Mike was directing prayers for them to catch the Israel vision, had NO inclination to understand GOD's HEART for Israel - that is why Mike called for IHOP to completely immerse themselves in Fasting and Prayer for this extensive worldwide group of intercessors to get the revelation. 

The truth is, most of IHOP-ers have had no clue why they should be involved with the Israel Mandate.
[My source of this comes from an "insider" in IHOP who confided it was so before the controversy of 2023). Most IHOP-ers only have the vision for 24/7 prayer and worship. I believe the same is true in the international network of associated prayer houses. IHOP-KC was a foothold that if this controversy had not broken out, would have become the launching point of God's vision of the "one new man" (Ephesians 2:15) breaking new ground internationally. I pray God will make a way for that to be carried out still.

Also I do believe the lack of understanding at IHOP about the essential role of the Israel Mandate is due to a lot of generational baggage younger people have been indoctrinated with. They have been taught to equate Israelis and Palestinians as mutually aggressive rather than understanding the the terrorists who rule Palestinians have for over 70 years been fully committed to annihilation of all Israel. Many Christians have bought into the lie that if they are not pro-Palestinian and instead support Israel, that they are not really being "Christian" about it. Lie. 

I don't believe that it is by coincidence that Accuser #1 had a 20 years later traumatic revelation in March of what her sexual activities with Bickle meant to her. 

Her view was that he had victimized her, not that she as a 19 year old woman had decided to engage in a romantic involvement with a married man. At 19 she is responsible for her own decision regardless of how she might idolize Mike. For me it is not so hard to understand that she would throw Bickle under the bus as a predator, so she could remove herself from any responsibility or accountability. She would not be the first woman to do such a thing - feigning innocence and blaming the man entirely. 

We have been overly sensitized to the #MeToo Feminist version of sexual encounters, that many men are eager to prove they are not one of those brute beasts males who take advantage of the weaker sex. Hence they "Believe the Woman"

In the Deep South 100 years ago, when a white woman would have consensual sex with a black man, then afterwards have fearful regrets of being caught, she would accuse the black man of rape.  Of course her word was accepted over his and he would end up swinging from a tree for consensual sex.

Pardon me speculating but I fear this is exactly what is happening to Mike Bickle. If it were not the case, then he wouldn't be left hanging for the past four months being tried in public opinion instead of getting a real, just, fair, impartial investigation and hearing of the facts - within the body of Christ. If there are none among us who can be considered impartial judges, able to hear the facts and give judgment without bias or prejudice, then we are far truly in horrible condition as His representatives on the earth.

The refusal to allow cross examination of the accusers and with the "Advocacy  Group" now making videos to tell 1-sided stories that further inflame public opinion is a huge red flag to me. One of the women featured in the YouTube Advocacy Group gave us another layer of the story by saying it was because she was seeing the life of the husband of accuser #1 blowing up, she got him to confide in her the story his wife told him about Mike Bickle. 

That is what set everything in motion. Why must we just accept that she told her husband the whole truth, keeping nothing back? People keep secrets even from their spouses, especially guilty secrets. How much greater do the stakes become to the accuser's marriage if an honest and fair cross examination pokes holes in what she told her husband? It is motivation to stick with the story, isn't it?

 Any group that seeks to silence a fair hearing for Mike Bickle is censoring fact-finding and that will only lead to gross injustice. Personally I believe there is much jealousy being exposed in those who are so willing to believe the worst of Mike Bickle without a fair investigation and hearing by judicial, spiritual elders in the international body. Also that among many of the women involved in the controversy surrounding this there is an aspiration for a spiritual version of the Feminist movement in Christian circles. I believe the hearts of many are being exposed, and really it is for the purpose of everyone being able to repent for their failures and sins, not just playing at holier than Mike.

I pray God will speak mightily into this nightmare at IHOP-KC which is bringing denunciation of prophesy altogether and causing others to walk away losing faith. "Its all been a lie."

As for Mike Bickle, he has confessed to an out-of-bounds relationship with accuser #1 that was just short of actual sexual intercourse. Still forbidden, but he also said he confessed his sin before God, repented of it - which means turned away from the behavior - and believed it was a sin under the blood of Jesus.

As for accuser #1, it ludicrous to me to believe that after 20-something years of keeping her secret from everyone, she finally had a sudden revelation 
while watching the trial of Bill Cosby that her sexualized romance with Bickle had been all his fault. She never told anyone in all those years what had taken place. That is guilt, not repressed memory.

I believe we should pray for God to arise and shake the lies out of this whole thing. Let the sunshine in and the truth be known.

On 2/1 the investigator for IHOP released her findings which can be downloaded. From these findings & additional information, I stand by completely what I wrote above several days ago. 

"Never Again" really is NOW


A majority of at least 15 out of 17 judges voted in favor of imposing the so-called provisional measures, including the court's president, Joan Donoghue of the United States. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel on Friday to take action to prevent acts of genocide as it wages war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip but stopped short of calling for an immediate ceasefire.
Five days later the full impact has hit me that “Never Again” really is NOW.

“Never Again” really is NOW
by Donna Diorio

I found I cannot walk together with people who do not embrace Israel. When I left the Messianic congregation I was a member of for many years, my full intention was to go to D/FW churches to bring in awareness of God's intentions for the restoration of Israel. I realize this doesn't speak very well of me, but I found I could not exist among a people who could not grasp the intentions of God's heart toward Israel. 

     They made me too mad teaching the whole book of Romans and just skipping over Romans 9, 10 & 11 like those chapters held no relevance to the church. Or hearing a famous healing minister take the pulpit of that same church to say he didn't get Mike Bickle's ‘Israel deal.’ Things like that ended up making me flee. Even in the beginning of my discovery of the Messianic movement, hearing a major prophet preaching from a replacement perspective one night rolled off the platform and hit me like a physical gut punch. When I took the issue to discuss with the pastor later, he denied there was any prejudice in himself or the prophet. But what else explains a theological conviction that in God's eyes there is no more place was found for Israel, but the Church has replaced them as God's chosen people? How does anyone erase the reality of Israel in the whole Bible? How do we get so blinded we "appropriate" God's promises to Israel for ourselves and leave all the punishments to Israel alone?

     Believe me, I tried to stick it out among people who don't believe God's everlasting intentions for Israel, but the spiritual warfare swirled around me so much I could not stay in those places. There are those who obviously must be far more mature spiritually than I am, who can just sit there and intercede for them, but I couldn't. I had to run away—far, far away. My place is where believers understand that Israel is God's and He will give them sight to see Yeshua is their Messiah.

     The Israeli ministries having been saying for a while now, "Never Again is Now." Not until just this minute had that statement hit me full force that it really is now. In my mind I had set that time farther out in the future—the things I studied in the 1990's about the Holocaust, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life, about how eventually we will all be "counting the cost" in hostile, anti-Semitic times. It was my great desire not to fail to stand with the Jews if I was ever in the place where it would cost dearly to cast my lot with God's plans for the restoration of Israel. Now I can't keep the tears from flowing realizing just how now 'Never Again' really is. 

     This is the place where the devil begins peeling away in earnest all those who didn't realize it was going to cost them something to stand with Israel. It does cost something, but not making the choice to stand will cost more in the end.

The World Entertains the Enemy’s “Days of Rage”

 The Hit Israeli TV Series

FAUDA is what OCT 7th released
throughout the world

The World Entertains
the Enemy’s “Days of Rage”

It was just a matter of days after Hamas launched one of the most brutal attacks on Israel that has ever been seen, that a “Day of Rage” was called for supporters of Hamas to demonstrate in cities around the world – many cities in the nation, not just one city for each nation.  Israel was staggered not only by the level of violence against them, but deeply grieved by the level of international support for the terrorists. The brutality of Hamas even exceeded the brutality of Isis that stunned the whole world. Why was there such a wide empathy gap for what Hamas terrorists did to hundreds of Israeli citizens?

     It has been the blatant lies of the enemy that international governments have played along with over 70 years of ruthless attacks on citizens in the modern state of Israel. Israel and their terrorist attackers were portrayed as equally provocative with each other. Lie. Israel has always been on defense posture against intractable aggressors. If anyone wanted to know the truth they could find it. Instead lies are chosen.

     On the 99th day after the Hamas attack, even more people around the world came out to “Globalize the Intifada.” This is Fauda – pure and simple: Chaos. It is lawlessness and no so-called Christian can explain it away to me as anything else. If people align themselves with brutal terrorism and call it “freedom fighting” that doesn’t mean I have to trust their emotions are rightful. What these demonstrations are a witness to is not the globalization of the intifada, it is the globalization of lawlessness expressed in anti-Semitism. It is both spiritual and prophetic that the whole world is mobilized to such an irrational, undeserved hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. It is rebellion against God and a rejection of the truth.

     2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 says, "The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie."

    If that verse doesn’t fit this situation, as we like to say in Texas, then I’m a monkey’s uncle.  –D.Diorio

The last week of 2023 I was in expectation of what God would speak to me about 2024 and within days the Spirit began to impress on me that the word God was giving me for 2024 was "Generations." It has be a concern to me for several years the great chasm between generations that exists in the world, now exists in the body of the LORD.
This is so against God's desire for all generations alive today. 

Donna Diorio, January 26, 2024

I am opposed to the youth divide that is so evident in the body of the LORD today. It should not exist! There are no Gen X or Z, Baby Boomers, Millennials or Alphas in the spiritual body of the LORD - that is the divisions that seculars make to divide and conquer.
There are no disrespectful divisions if we follow Yeshua, but VALUE for all ages. We will reject the popular secular divisions according to decade-"generations" in favor of His making of us all "one New Man" in Himself. There is a God given beauty to every age that is to be valued and respected, not disdained as youth have chosen in the past decades.
I know this is true: my generation of the 60's and '70's were led down that same path too and deep divisions were the result. When I rediscovered God in the 80's, I was so blessed to see youth and the aged value and respect each other. It spoke to me the truth, "and they shall know you by your love for one another."
Can't have love of one another with value and respect regardless of age. And when we are alienated by each others views, someone is not aligned with the Word of God.

The Age of Consent


Strictly speaking, this article is out of the bounds of Israel orientation, but not really because it is something that the Israeli body of Messiah handles better that Western Christian ministries do. It is also about a Christian ministry that raised up both 24/7 prayer and worship houses and intercession for Israel worldwide. My focus on what is happening in Kansas City is directly related to my mission of advocacy for the Israeli body of Messiah.

First written Jan 24, 2024 on my Facebook page: 

One of the incidents that turned me off to American prophetic circles is an experience I had many years ago with a group of female intercessors who were so caught up by the prophetic that they did not use any discernment with prophetic words or prophets. I created a great uproar when I told them that the male prophet whose word they were passing among themselves was in opposition to the Word of God. The spit hit the fan and I was #1 bad guy to them.

What was he saying? He was telling married women how God saw how wonderfully spiritual they were and what a spiritual deadbeat they were married to, that God was going to get rid of their husband and grant them a spiritual partner on the same level of spirituality as the women.

Frankly I could not believe that any of those women accepted this kind of "prophecy" but they just adored the prophet, who went on to become quite a famous name in prophetic circles. Of course that was not the end of what this group of women followed prophetically. I couldn't be a part of that, and anyway, I was already marked as an 'enemy' to their prayer vision which I have always believed "preyed" on me in witchcraft prayers.

That is part of my turn-off experience to the prophetic, although I have always believed in the true prophetic - it just has to align with God's Word, that's all. I have developed a zero tolerance for prophetic weirdness.

I have told this story because although I believe some good efforts are being made in the IHOP situation, there is still something that troubles me greatly and that is the "believe the woman" thread running through everything I see coming out of the investigations there. That there has not been even a hint of accountability for the women involved in accusing Mike in the first place, is greatly troubling to me. The women are being treated like child abuse victims, instead of women making bad decisions which allowed sinful sexual relations.

As long as we realize Jezebel, the principality so rampant in Western nations, has a part in all that is going on, how can we possibly ignore what scripture has to say about these situations?
Here is what the Apostle to the Gentiles had to say in

2 Timothy 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

6 FOR OF THIS SORT ARE THOSE THAT *CREEP* INTO HOMES *AND LEAD INTO CAPTIVITY* SILLY WOMEN" (gynaikarion) and LOADED DOWN WITH SINS, LED AWAY WITH (epithymia) desire for what is forbidden/various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Women can look for love in all the wrong places too, but God's Word does not absolve them from their choices to sin even when wooed by men who are also being led about by "desire for what is forbidden/various lusts".

As Daniel Juster of Restoration from Zion has said, "the male minister carries a deeper accountability," but there is no justice if the women are treated as abused children, and not held accountable as having chosen sin at an age of consent. We aren't taking about 12-year olds or about rape, only regret after the fact and many women carry that same regret without trying to shift all blame on the man.

The level of Jezebel influence in this thing is a true bother to me. I get it the men who want to protect their daughters, but as a woman of God, I can tell you: women make choices to sin just as much as men do.

I am also concerned that even though we have had hints thrown out about the sexual exchange between Mike and accuser #1 - that the exchanges fell short of actual intercourse, but involved everything else, that is really all we have been told about any kind of sexual interaction with Mike himself by any of the accusers. Even that accusation is over 20 years old. Mike has been reported to have said he believed it was a sin repented of and under the blood of Jesus. I have seen nothing of substance in all the accusations to doubt this.

What we have heard is accusations against Mike that he did not do the proper thing when incidents were reported to him about other men who pursued women at IHOP for sexual purposes.

This is why I believe this aspect is being mishandled because Mike saying the man was not under his authority to deal with on accountability level is pretty much the same thing you would hear across the board in prophetic circles in America, and probably beyond prophetic circles too. This is kind of 'spiritual rule' to keep to your own sphere of those under your authority and accountable to you, and not to intervene with people who are not under your authority and accountability. I think this is wrong when we a speaking of wrong-doing that impacts the body, but this is just the way it is practiced widely across ministry.

So it is easy to see why the women holding Mike's feet to the fire on this point would think it Mike's personal failure, instead of realizing it is 'industry standard'.

One of the men who is accused of preying on women at IHOP and through his own ministry, has been conflated to add additional weight to accusations against Mike, as if he has been running a sexual predator's pleasure resort. That is so out of the bounds of justice in my view.

Other leaders who were contacted to do something about that prophetic man also declined to intervene with one citing the 'not under my authority rule' and the other given a pass because it was in the midst of his wife dying of cancer.

The fact is, if 10 - 20 highly placed prophetic ministers had been contacted about the man, likely all would have passed on doing anything. This is not Mike's failure alone, this is 'industry standard'.

It is not fair or just even to imply it is all Mike's fault publicly, in my opinion, seeing how it is only the "insiders" with a certain view of Mike that have been allowed to publicly air their narratives about what is going on. No defense of Mike is allowable and until transparency and accountability for ALL involved is embraced by the authorities over this, injustice is the only thing that can come out of it. And leaving the whole prophetic world divided against each other for the failure of biblical justice.

Genesis 3:13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

Blame shifting doesn't get by God.

Rachel weeping

"Prayer request for Israeli Messianic minister, Guy Cohen: "There are many soldiers who were injured and killed from this Gaza war. Please pray and share for need of recovery and consolation to the families who lost their beloveds."
Donna: I was reminded of Matthew 2:18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”
The fuller context may be prophetic still, as God has a habit of repeating prophecy in the time it was spoken, and then in the far off time of the future.
The Slaughter of Innocents | Matthew 2:17-20 Then what was spoken through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: 18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” 19 After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt. 20 “Get up!” he said. “Take the Child and His mother and go to the land of Israel, for those seeking the Child’s life are now dead.”
The time of Yeshua being taken to the hurting "Rachel" after this horrible war and so much loss, is when the persecutor is dead. Herod is like Hamas, slaughtering innocents to make a claim that God does not back.
Pray even now for the body of Messiah in Israel to comfort their people with the knowledge of the promises of God in Yeshua, to be with them and the save them. Like Job, after the trial of his faith, losing his children and all that he had, after he prayed for his accusing friends, God returned to Job many children to comfort him, and restored Job's peace and all he had lost.

Pray for the body of Messiah in Israel who are suffering right alongside their countrymen - sharing in the losses, sharing in the great hurt of being a people persecuted and hated century after century because God called them "chosen." Pray for comfort of their hearts, their souls, restored vision for the salvation of "all Israel" that is at the DOOR even as we speak in the beginning of 2024. Now is the time to lift they arms in the work of the ministry and to lift their spirits in encouragement that WE DO SEE - it is them who are the CHOSEN OF GOD for the salvation of all Israel.

The Will of God is Taught in the Word of God


You do realize that you can never know the will of God by listening to the Spirit only? That's because the Holy Spirit is not the only one with access to speak to you in thoughts. There is also the human spirit of your own thoughts and there are demonic thoughts that have access to every person's mind. They love putting on spiritual airs as they speak as if they were God. Demonic spirits can't read your mind, but they can speak demonic reasoning into your thoughts just like they did in the Garden of Eden speaking to Eve. Thoughts that lead you away from God, not toward God.

Why was Eve not able to refute what the serpent told her about the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Because "She erred when she added that even 'touching the fruit would lead to death.' The serpent took advantage of her error, but it seems Adam did teach her God's word." 

Because Eve ate from the tree and enticed her husband Adam to compromise God's instructions, all humanity now eats from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil. Compromising God's Will doesn't kill us instantly, and if we don't repent, how great is our fall.

The ONLY thing that stands between our compromise of God's Will is not knowing what His Will actually is. In other words rejecting the very Word God gave to Moses and the all the people He chose to walk in His Will. So many Christians reject the Hebrew scriptures completely, thinking, "We have the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth, what do we need God's Word for?" If we are really listening to the Holy Spirit, He will guide us into all truth BY God's Word. Selah.

God told Adam what not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, but He did not speak the same to Eve. Adam was expected to lead his wife and family into knowing the Word of God. Instead Adam compromised what he knew to be forbidden by God's own Word and comprised his relationship with God by allowing his wife lead him astray in her ignorance of God's Word. 

We have a special problem with the same thing in believer families to this day: family members who know the Word of God compromising it because of other family members ignorance of God's will. It is a sticky and widespread problem, but we need to seek God for the answer to how to show love to family members without compromising either our relationship with God or with God's Word. If we cannot be counted on to stand faithfully with God's Word then our family will never follow after us toward God.

Don't Pray for Israel like there is no Remnant of Faith within Her

The beautiful feet in Israel belong to the Messianic Jewish believers.

Please do not pray for Israel as if the LORD does not have a Remnant of faith in Yeshua within them. As if the Gospel is not going forth in Israel, as if there are no worshippers, no intercessors, no 24/7 houses, no congregations discipling people, none helping lost people in need. God placed them there and they are increasing daily.

Lift up their arms and speak prayer support towards their needs when you set yourself to pray for Israel. They are doing all the work of the ministry that is being done in every other spiritually conscientiousness congregation of our faith. Don't assume they are of lesser spirituality level than you - some are, some aren't exactly like in your nation.

The beautiful feet in Israel belong to Israeli Messianic believers.

Spiritually Countering the Principalities of the Age

 "There is a dangerous aspect of the Jezebel spirit that has seductive and even religious traits, therefore it disguises itself well. The Lord shall utterly destroy every effort of Jezebel to destroy His prophets and the prophetic move of God." - prayer of a woman blogger I found yesterday.

At the end of the age, prophetically two major principalities dominating humanity are revealed in the book of Revelation. They are the spirit of Jezebel and the Beast spirit. In the West the dominant spirit is Jezebel, in the East the dominant is the Beast spirit.
America has become ruled by the Jezebel spirit to the point that not even an enormous number of Christians can even recognize it and many, in fact, have been deceived to see it as justice and equality. Jezebel doesn't bring justice or equality to those she deceives and manipulates to do her will and give her hidden control over seats of power.
The Beast spirit is dominant in Beastly empires, who commit beastly atrocities against those they rule, and they desire their rule be over all. Islamists are a Beast spirit and so are oppressive nations like China. Islamists swarmed the European nations first. For years we have heard of the reports of areas that have come so fully under their control in European nations that they became known as "no go zones". Then came the rape domination of the women of those nations. Now it is the rabid rise of antiSemitism.
Islamists in North America were on a different approach, a strategy they laid out in 1993 of stealth gaining influence. They have been wildly successful in their plan. Like their brothers back in the lands they came from, like Hamas, they have a deep disdain for the "Big Satan" of America, but for their purposes of putting down deep roots in North America they are not above alliances with those deep under the control of the Jezebel spirit. In due course, when they determine their strength is great enough, and in a moment of American weakness and vulnerability, the Beast spirits will throw off the pretense of alliance with feminists, lgbtq and others they formed alliances with to increase their own influence and power.
Generations of North American Christians have been duped by these two spirits in alliance. Not everything that looks like the quest for justice is that.
That was the macro. Here is the micro: As relates to IHOPKC, my strong belief is that the sin involved was repented of before God over 20 years ago, and it was under the blood of Jesus, not repeated by the leader.
By the woman, it was never admitted until these 20+ years later in order to accuse, and the excuse herself from feeling terrible about her sin, not to actually be accountable herself.
We have seen this before. As the scripture says, First the natural, then the spiritual.
When our president was encircled by those intent on excluding him from a second term, many came forth with baseless lies...and they kept coming and are still trying to keep him from taking the reins of this nation. He was the natural, and in my view MB is the spiritual.
The spirit of Jezebel orchestrating the downfall and takeover of God's vineyard, raised for a purpose. It is a powerful deception, dividing spiritual friends, in major part a generational divide - same as in the natural with the former president.
My prayers continue to be for God to arise and the coup to overthrown, to expose the liars, usurpers and those that move KC in a way it should not go. Repentance and restoration for all involved.
God requires our forgiveness of each other, and He metes out justice that is righteous.

The Issachar Anointing in Prayer for Jerusalem

Jerusalem: Eye of the Storm

 Many times over the past couple of decades doing my Israel Prayer elists, I have had Christians tell me they didn't need to know what was going on in Israel because the HOLY SPIRIT told them what to pray. That is Charismatic arrogance if you ask me. 

Here are a couple of biblical examples that I base my assessment on. One is found in 1 Chronicles 12:32, the passage about the tribe of "Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do". That has a New Testament parallel where we are told to pray in the Spirit and pray with understanding.

It's pretty hard to pray with understanding if you have no understanding of what is going on in Israel. That praying in understanding didn't just mean a language you and other listeners understood.

Over the past several years many of the Israeli ministries have written about a famous line from the Psalms that everyone who ever saw a Zola Levitt program will recognize even in Hebrew: "Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim," Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. 

Hebrew is an language for wordsmiths - it has very precise meanings. So when Psalm 122:6 was translated as, Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, you need to know this: 

"The Hebrew text is 'Shalu Shlom Yerushalayim' where Shalu is translated 167 times as "ask, enquire, request, salute, greet" AND YET ONCE AND ONLY ONCE, translated as "pray" and it is in Psalm 122 verse 6.

What do my Israeli Messianic Jewish friends make of that? They see it as the call by God not only to ask Him for the peace of Jerusalem, but to be proactive in inquiring about the peace of Jerusalem. Not to adopt an laissez faire attitude toward the peace of Jerusalem, but to lean in to know what's going on.

This isn't political. This is about not being passive about the peace of Jerusalem, but to know what are the things that make for peace. 

In trying to find some of the articles Israeli Messianic ministries have written about this in the past, I ran across a very interesting article about a Baptist preacher who had come to the same conclusion about the meaning going beyond uninformed prayers for the peace of Jerusalem.

In the Australian version of Christianity Today (1/7/2024), Baptist minister "Mark Tronson, who is a qualified Holy Land guide, has revisited Psalm 122 verse 6a, challenging the translation which reads 'Pray for the peace of Jerusalem'."

"M V Tronson says that this verse has caused him more concern and uneasiness than any other in relation to things Israel. He noted that 'war' has been a consistent feature of Israel's existence, past, present and future and that the City of David was established in 'war and blood' [2 Samuel 5:8].

"He said that he has been puzzled that Christians in his holy land circles pray Psalm 122:6a daily, yet Jerusalem's populations have suffered more wars and seen more bloodshed than any other city. Some years ago he painted 'Jerusalem' in blood red in one of his paintings, under his artistic guise, 'Tronson du Coudray – the missionary painter'.

"Prayer is a precious commodity according to the will of God, but when said outside 'His will' its value is questionable."

I found his comments remarkable. It is easy to assume we know the will of God when we know little of His promises to Israel or how they are being fulfilled in our own day. War, as in the re-capture of the City of David" (Jerusalem) was necessary even though people died. The war in Gaza is also necessary because Israel cannot live with the level of brutality that was unleashed on her citizens October 7th. Israel will continue to war for its existence...with the blessing of God. 

Only Christians who are not passive about praying for Israel as commanded by God know that. They have committed to understanding what to pray over Israel. Casual commitment is not going to cut it from here on out.

Uninformed Prayers Do Harm

 The prayers of the uninformed do hurt. 

Many hear them and are influenced to believe this is the "spiritual" route. Some believe they can pray for peace to prevail in the Middle East so all the Jews and Arabs can come to the knowledge of the LORD, implying this war is unnecessary. It is not true, and if they knew their Bible, they would realize that is just the OPPOSITE of what God has said prophetically will be the case in the last of the last days.

The nations are already pressuring Israel to back off, let the Hamas terrorists off the hook, so no innocents will be killed as collateral damage. When Christians begin to take up the same theme in their prayers, how long will it be before demands are made that Israel stop immediately? Not long. And it will turn even more Christians and nations to become enraged against Israel.

The reality that Christians who pray like this can't see is because they have dismissed the Hebrew scriptures - as well as any New Covenant scripture that includes input about Israel's place in God's plans. If the veil was removed from their eyes, they would be able to look over the reality of the situation Israel is in today and recognize these are the building blocks of Zechariah 12:3 "On that day, when all the nations of the earth gather against her, I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who would heave it away will be severely injured."

Israel is currently in a 7-front war: the first front is with Hamas in Gaza. The other 6 are Lebanon, Syria, Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), Iraq, Yemen and Iran. All of these are participating in warring against Israel AT THIS TIME. Israel will be facing several of them as immediately as they  remove the Hamas threat.

God will restrain them by His Hand as we pray in accord with that mercy on Israel. Israelis will continue to see that there hope is only in Him and will awaken to the Messiah. Seeing Christians praying as the prophetic Word of God over Israel will be a great part in the removal of the veil over Jewish eyes to the identity of Israel's Messiah. So also will the example of the Messianic Jewish Israelis in their midst who are sharing the Gospel. 

But too many Christians are praying "Peace, peace, when there is no peace."  Can't pray peace over the season God has declared to be the season for war, the season to pluck up."

Pray for the salvation of Arabs - many are marked by God for salvation, but they have to be brought out from the rule of terrorists, who for the majority, will never come to the wells of salvation. Their choice of evil already made. Israel cannot make peace with those intent on the annihilation of Israel and Jews in every place they still remain in the nations. 

Ezekiel 13:9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and speak lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of My people or be recorded in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord GOD. 

     10 Because they have led My people astray, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and whitewashing any flimsy wall that is built, 11 tell those whitewashing the wall that it will fall. Rain will come in torrents, I will send hailstones plunging down, and a windstorm will burst forth.

Can't make peace with those intent on your annihilation

Recent headlines from the Times of Israel 

Can't make peace with those intent on your annihilation

In recent years we have been sold a rotten bill of goods on spirituality, that we could not pay attention to politics and be truly spiritually. It is a trap that leads evil to grow up unchallenged by the faithful of God. The generation before mine removed from politics as the assault mounted on abortion, prayer in school as the enemies of God began to erase our faith from the public sphere. We were to sit in our churches and listen to politics-free sermons while evil began to re-educate our nation away from faith to their new religion of secularism. 

We are in even worse shape now as especially younger generations have been persuaded that spirituality must be kept in a politics-free  mind. Now people can't tell what is right and wrong because whatever is happening in society, they consider it to be "politics." 

The war in Israel is not "politics." The rabid anti-semitism in the nations is because believers closed themselves in, refusing to aware of the enemy sowing hatred in their midst. They considered it merely politics. Right and wrong, evil and righteousness. These are not mere politics in a society. To render ourselves so spiritually above these things is to allow the threat we are in now. 

At some point your spiritual bubble is going to burst, that place where you have kept your spirit marked safe from 'politics.' You are going to wake up and realize first they turned on the Jews and now they are turning their attention to you. 

Wise as serpents Harmless as doves

 We are to be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves according to Jesus, not spiritually floating on a cloud when evil is stalking us to take us out.

There were many times when there was a desire to kill Jesus that rose up against Him. The very first time when declared Himself to be the answer to Isaiah 61, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

It enraged the people of His hometown. Who did He think He was anyway? "And he said, 'Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown....On hearing this, all the people in the synagogue were enraged. They got up, drove Him out of the town, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw Him over the cliff."

Jesus evaded them. In their fury of pushing Him towards the cliff, when they got to the edge, they were pushing each other so much that He turned and walked right through them to safety.

It would not be the last time Jesus evaded those who were trying to kill Him prematurely. He knew He was going to die, but He also knew it was not time for Him to LAY DOWN HIS LIFE, so until it was His time, He did not allow anyone to take His life that had to be laid down in God's timing, not man's - or the demons that moved them to try to kill Him.

Many Christians have come to accept that they must allow whatever comes to them, "turning the other cheek" even when demons have been stirred in people to take you out permanently. Jesus did not allow every attempt to succeed, and we should not either, unless God has spoken to us that this is our time to lay down our lives.

We must be wise as serpents, but harmless as doves. We are not to seek hurting those who seek to kill us off, but we should be wise concerning evil schemes of serpents, and not let them put us to death - literally or figuratively.

Fauda is an Arabic word meaning Chaos

I have held off posting about the cast and crew of the popular Israeli program, Fauda. Most of my followers have probably enjoyed the series because of up close and personal view of the conflicts in Israel because of terrorism. That is because it shows the heartbreak on both sides. It has never tried to dehumanize the Palestinians but also did not soft peddle terrorism. 

“Fauda,” which launched in 2015, follows an undercover anti-terrorist unit in the West Bank. A fifth season was announced in September 2023. I have loved it for the realism, and the chance to see what it is really like from the counter-terrorism viewpoint in Israel. Most of actors in Fauda are not just "acting" in something they know nothing about. They all served, like all Israeli young people after the graduate from high school. They have to. Israel has too many deadly enemies for their population not to be trained. 

But the point of this post is to say that the cast, crew and creators of the hit series, Fauda,  stepped up immediately to play active roles in this war, including Lior Raz who is the lead actor in Fauda, and its creator along with co-creator Avi Issacharov, also fellow “Fauda” stars Tomer Capone, Yaakov Zada Daniel, Tzachi Halevi, and Idan Amedi have also returned to IDF duty.

In an article on October 12th “Fauda” actor Guy Shalom said  “On Saturday morning I was awakened by sirens, and along with the sound came Hamas fighters.”

Shalom continued, “I have cried and I will surely cry for a long time. However, our spirit will not break, I am moved by the unity of Israelis who help each other in any way they can, by donating blood, money and supplies.”

Just last week, our Messianic brother Chaim Malespin ran into a Fauda actor while the Aliyah Return Center funded and volunteered at a BBQ by Kibbutz Berei (one of the Kibbutz’s that suffered from October 7th attack). In the picture above, the fellow in uniform next to Chaim is Tzachi Halevy.

One of the Fauda crew members in the early days of fighting gave the ultimate price.  Master Sgt. (res.) Matan Meir, 38, a soldier in the 551st Brigade's 697th Battalion and a longtime member of the "Fauda" production team, was killed November 11 in northern Gaza. 

It is not that they are celebrities that this needs notice, it is that even though they could easily have excused themselves from fighting, they did not. They joined the fight for their people's survival. This is heroic in my mind.


Why God is intent on One New Man unity?


How fitting that I found a beautiful graphic with exactly the verse I wanted to use, EXCEPT I had to alter it because they had removed the very important words of God "and before the people of Israel". It is time for Christian denial of God's commitment to Israel to END!

Why God is intent on One New Man unity?

In Ephesians 2:14-15 the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul, wrote about God's plan for uniting Jew and Gentile in the faith in His Son.  Have you ever wondered why? Or why we haven't really seen that take place in any undeniable way?

The passage goes, "For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has torn down the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing in His flesh the law of commandments and decrees. He did this to create in Himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace"

Many Christians have interpreted that passage as God abolishing "the Law" He gave Israel to live by in commandments and decrees that trained them in what God's standards of holiness, righteousness and justice are.  That was not the point.

The point, as explained by Paul in Romans 11:32, was that God "has bound up all in disobedience, that He may show mercy to all." The Jews could not keep all of God's standards of holiness, righteousness and justice and neither can Christians. As Paul says in Romans 3:22-23, "And this righteousness from God comes through faith in Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah to all who believe. There is no distinction, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

The Chosen People of God were put on the same level ground of the nations, but in the end times God would remove the veil from Jewish eyes. John 12:40 citing Isaiah 6:10 "“God has blinded their eyes and closed their minds, so that their eyes would not see, and their minds would not understand, and they would not turn to me, says God,for me to heal them.” 

Why would God do such a thing?! So He could have mercy on the nations, but He would not keep Israel in spiritual blindness forever as Paul explains in Romans 11:31 "so they too have now disobeyed, in order that they too may now receive mercy through the mercy shown to you."

That is why Paul presses Christians with understanding WE ARE INDEBTED TO ISRAEL because Romans 15:27 we "are debtors of them. For if the Gentiles/nations have shared in their spiritual things, they ought also to minister to them in the material things."

Paul was speaking to the contributions of the churches to the ministries in Israel, ministering the Gospel to the Jews - because they were in great need and great adversity. 

Romans 11:26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come from Zion; He will remove godlessness from Jacob. 27 And this is My covenant with them when I take away their sins.”

God made a covenant with Israel and the promises are throughout the Bible, if you don't see them, then you don't want to see them, but they are there. It will be the ekklesia that Jesus has raised up in the nations who will see this plan of God as their business, and do it.

The Gates of Hell Shall NOT Prevail


Banias near Caeserea Phillipi, known as the Gates of Hell
because of the human sacrifices made in idolatry there.
As Yeshua was preparing His close disciples for His coming death,
they walked in the valley below this site, and what He spoke to them
was about the keys of the kingdom He was leaving with them with
so “the gates of hell” would not prevail over the ekklesia He was building.  
Let this reignite in your spirit as it has in mine the first days of 2024.

The Gates of Hell Shall NOT Prevail
by Donna Diorio January 2, 2024

     Thirteen years ago in May 2010 I wrote about the passage of Matthew 16:17-19 speaking of how Yeshua has given us the keys of the kingdom and because of it, the gates of hell shall not prevail against the house of the Lord He is building. I wrote it as the Holy Spirit led me and I believed it, but I cannot say that I have walked in it anywhere near fully...more like spottily. Still, as this passage became reignited in my spirit on January 1st, I am at a new level of expectation about what God means to do with us, the ekklesia that Yeshua is building of us, living stones in the Temple of God.

     Then weeks later in July 2010, with new information I received after Jim Melnick, a friend read my article. Iron sharpens iron. So I wrote this in The Gates of Hell, Part 2: "Yeshua did not snatch the term 'gates of hell' out of thin air, but in true parabolic form gave His disciples an object lesson about the spirit realm in the very geographical location that demon spirits and false religions had claimed so many victims by sacrifice.

     "The time frame of this conversation was at the beginning of His preparation of the 11 for His death as the Passover Lamb that would take place in Jerusalem. He was preparing them to graduate from being His disciples to becoming His apostles. This conversation was critical to that transition, which they did not know yet would be profoundly distressing and troubling in the process of unfolding. They were on a mighty threshold of transition and didn’t even know it yet.

     "What exactly was Yeshua communicating to His disciples? We are not just looking at the words but at the context His disciples would have readily grasped from the location this conversation took place. When Yeshua used the term 'the gates of hell' at that site notorious throughout Israel for idol worship and ritual sacrifices, it cannot be without significance.

     What strikes me now the opening days of 2024 is the vexing things we have been looking at here at the end of 2023. I sense we are in a position like the disciples were when Yeshua spoke to them preparing them for the unimaginable times ahead. He was telling them that no matter how bleak, disappointing or hopeless it would look to them in the days ahead, He was giving them something that the gates of hell could not prevail against.

There is a black saint of God who has always been consistent praying at the microphone of the Prayer Room at IHOPC, but Lillian had disappeared for the past few weeks. I wondered about her often because she was so steadfast, praying with great wisdom daily many times at the microphone. Mostly her intercession was on behalf of Israel. I believe she was likely given so much access to the mic because her prayers for Israel are so right on. She has been hearing from God on the subject. That access appears limited now and I believe it has to do with those who have taken charge.
    January 1st I was thrilled to see her once again take the IHOP Prayer Room mic to pray. She only prayed once, not many times as she usually has. She has a deep heart for Israel, so I was glad to see her and hear her praying. I believe she has been hearing God’s opinion, and that is the only opinion that matters!
     The worship teams at IHOP called a fast & prayer from 1/1-1/7/2024 – especially to intercede about all the chaos and division among them since the accusations against Mike Bickle were spoken of publicly. There has never been a biblical due process over the past weeks, but accusations have been accepted at IHOP and Bickle severed from IHOP "forever." This has deep ramifications for the Israel Mandate because the Accuser of the brethren has walked into that congregation.
They are all being impacted because of the division unleashed. Behind the scenes there are those, even in Israel, who are speaking to them that due process must take place - biblical due process, not according to WOKE standards, but according to God's standards. In my view, WOKE standards are idolatry and this is something to add to our prayer list for Israel. Unless God’s due process prevails for IHOP, I believe honestly their prayer for Israel will begin to break down very quickly. I even heard one of the worship leaders praying about Israel and “all the sin they are enacting in war." After contacting him for clarification he said it was because he was seeing children in Gaza dead from bombings and he believes that is always sin.  I attempted to lay out the facts about that, because it is sin, it is just not Israel’s sin, it is the jihadists’ sin. But today, I do believe they are going to try to push past everything and try to maintain all is well at IHOP regardless of how they have dealt with Bickle and the leadership that they have severed.    

     When Lillian prayed at the mic yesterday, that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church," this covers every bit of chaos, division, warfare we are looking at as the reality of our days. That means in the war Israel is engaged in, in our personal battles, in the current state of IHOPKC.  If things are not carried forth by God's standards at IHOP, I believe that house of prayer for Israel will break down very quickly.
     Don't get me wrong: I am not saying we ignore sin in leadership because of the great things Bickle has done for Israel, but I am saying we don't convict men on accusation alone, without proper judgment within the body of the LORD, not in public opinion or court systems we know would love nothing better than to put their finger on the scales of justice to lock up a man of God and throw away the key. That's not Jesus.

     Even now, I believe that we can use our keys of the kingdom to call for God to bring HIS justice to Mike Bickle and to cast out the Accuser of the brethren operating in the midst of the congregation. I believe there is repentance and restoration for all concerned...but only if it is done God's way.  

     There are some things in this spiritual battle we have entered that are not changeable because the rising darkness over humanity has been prophetically uttered by God, but not all the darkness is unchangeable. There is still much impact we can have because God has determined in Messiah to build an ekklesia that the gates of hell cannot prevail against. That will include many of the people you are praying over, in your family, in your nation and in Israel.
     How do we know what God wants? Yeshua explained the path is lit by "hearing" God.

Matthew 16:17-19 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven.  18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.  19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

     Without the benefit of understanding Hebrew, Catholic leaders interpreted that passage to say that the apostle Peter was to be the foundation rock of Catholicism, therefore the first pope. It suited their plans. But Jesus was really pointing out Peter's formal name "Simon" is based on the word "hearing" and He was telling Peter that he had a revelation of the truth because he was hearing from God, not man.

     Then He uses the name Peter was known by to his friends, Peter, which means a rock and "used metaphorically of a soul hard and unyielding, and so resembling a rock."  Jesus is telling Peter he is a rock-hard man, but it will be on based on the revelation of hearing God, that Jesus will build His church, and the gates of hell will not be able to prevail against it. Rock hard men and women, men and women of strength, unwavering can only get so far.
     It is only in hearing God that the church can prevail against the gates of hell that come against the church, only He can speak true enlightenment for our times. Woke ideas will not deliver justice as God’s Word does.
     IHOP cannot simply dismiss the Hebrew understanding of how to judge matters of sin in the congregation and expect to go on like there was just a minor bump in the road. Especially in a congregation that was raised up for 24/7 prayer and worship for Israel in such a time as this.
