Unusual Planes Overhead

2022-07-11 Samaria, Israel:

So, Israel has recently shot down drones from Iran and Hezbollah (Iran’s proxy army terrorist group which runs the Lebanese government and is active in Syria as well). As for nukes in Iran, this time around neither the USA nor the Israeli government are stable and strong enough to do much: Israel increasingly needs to look to YHWH alone for protection. Meanwhile, USA’s President Biden travels to Saudi Arabia this week, I suppose to make oil deals, which is odd considering he closed down lots of oil business in Texas; but anyway… and then after that, the White House plans to stop by Israel for a visit, and the government coalition has just fallen apart here, last week.

So with all that in mind, this morning an unmarked military plane, about the size of a C-141 passed over my house in Samaria. It was an unusual sound, much lower rumble than the commercial planes ✈️ and instead of flying west towards Ben Gurion airport, this one was heading South-East. Very strange. Two minutes later, a plane with commercial markings and colorings followed behind on the exact same path.

Therefore, I think that flight had less to do with Iran, and more to do with Saudi Arabia. It may have been US or Israel military and support staff heading over to assist the White House people in Saudi Arabia. All this to say – let’s remember to pray for the leaders of the USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, as the Bible instructs us to do – regardless of any opinions we have about them. If we pray for them to become saved, and serve YHWH, and walk according to His purposes, things will certainly be better. Thanks.

Israeli Ship Struck By Iranian Missile

26 Mar 2021 Jerusalem Post Pg 4:

While the world tries to pretend that the government regime in Iran is as harmless as the Boy Scouts, with a new administration in the US White House, Iran has attacked Israeli ships for two months in a row.

Israel needs our prayers, and courageous prayer warriors on the front lines in Israel.

Who Cares About Giving Tuesday?


Yes, we at JTOD are aware that Giving Tuesday exists, at least in the minds of the nonprofits vying for your gifts.

I hope you’ll pray about it and ask our Father in Heaven what He would ask you to do!

I see a lot of potential for JTOD in the coming civil year: Local teaching, worship and praise music and 10-string harps released, men’s fellowship, and more.

Realistically, to realize this vision, we desperately need access to the LORD’s funds.

I’m asking for an expansion of 31 Partners by Dec 31. Set up your partnership now at the Donate button:




The term “Black Friday” has become a phrase which is used to boost retail sales every autumn season. Where did the term come from? Is it related to Giving Tuesday, Thanksgiving, or Succot? Check this video to find out.

Incendiary Balloons

Israel is dealing with the plague; In the midst of political changes; Three national elections in one year; and then the neighbors pick up again with explosive packages carried by balloons, incendiary balloons lighting fires in the southern farmlands (this is a recognized war crime); Rockets fired at civilian homes (another war crime).

Taking the high ground, the army responds by targeting missile launch sites, missile factories, and terror tunnels (not a war crime).



Israel and the UAE…Really?

What’s been going on with the peace deal with the UAE and Israel? The United Arab Emirates has come out into the open, Trump has announced the agreement (The Abraham Accords), and Netanyahu has announced it, the agreement between the UAE and Israel has become public; I’m getting two main responses. The first is, for example: “The UAE can’t be trusted; they’re Arabs, they’re going to use the deal with Israel and stab Israel in the back;” And the other response is, “Well, whatever, what else is in the news?” In other words, “Why is this important?”

So, first of all, let’s take a look at Genesis 12:3.

Israeli Law in Area C

Israel, the USA, and the Gulf States are in discussions lately about how and when to apply Israeli law in Area C, that is, in 30% of the poorly-named “West Bank.”. The USA set this as a precondition for the two parties – Israel and the Palestinians – entering into negotiations to agree on final borders.

In any case, this part of Judea and Samaria would certainly end up in Israel. The USA wants this to be established (along with the Capital) before talks.
