The International House of Prayer: Eastern Gateâ€™s Israel Mandate is being set in place to mobilize to pray and stand with the Jewish people regionally, nationally and spiritually.
We seek to raise up intercessors who will be the â€˜Watchmen on the walls of Jerusalemâ€™, as it is prophesied in Isaiah 62:6, â€˜who never hold their peace day or nightâ€™ — calling out to God for His justice and righteousness to be made manifest on the earth through His chosen vessel Israel.
We also seek to help bring understanding to the church that they are the wild olive branch being grafted in to the Jewish Olive Tree (Romans 11). Our confidence is that believers being filled with the Spirit of the L-rd will stir Israel to embrace Yeshua/Jesus as her Messiah. In return, God will use Israel as the instrument to bring restoration to the earth at the end of the age.
â€œYou (Israel) will not see me again until you cry out, â€˜Baruch Haba BaShem Adoniaâ€™, â€˜Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lordâ€™ (Matthew 23:37-39)
The strategy of this reality is in the building up of a network of prayer and partnership with the local Messianic Jewish communities and churches in the region. The key to this network will be Messianic prayer sets geared towards specifically praying for the salvation of the Jewish people and the restoration of Israel. These connections combined with seminars, internships, and conferences, will evoke the Psalm 133 commanded blessing found in the unity of both Jew and Gentile.
â€œI do not pray for these (Jewish people) alone, but also for those (the Gentiles) who willbelieve in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. Â And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.â€ John 17:20-23
