Jerusalem Prayer List — August 21, 2014

By Joseph Shulam – from Incheon, South Korea Rockets are again flying from Gaza to most parts of the Land of Israel.  The Rocket alarms sounded last night in Jerusalem.  Jerusalem citizens had to scramble to their shelters around 1:00 a.m.  – Several of my friends were already sleeping in bed and although they heard the alarms they did not get up and run down three or four floors to the shelters.  Some said that next time they hear the alarm they will get up and run down to the shelter because when they heard the big BOOM of the… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer list August 14, 2014 – An Important Message

By Joseph Shulam – from Tokyo, Japan. We just finished the first seminar in Japan a few hours ago.  We had near 200 people who have attended this seminar in Tokyo.  There were some brothers in the faith and some guests that came for the first time.  There were brothers who came all the way from Okinawa specially to attend this seminar, and others came from way up North of Japan.  The interest in what we have to say was sparked without a doubt from the serious situation in the Middle East.  The whole Middle East is actually reaching the… Read More

Joseph Shulam from Jerusalem, Israel This has been a month of war in Israel.  Over 3500 missiles have landed on the land of Israel.  From Eilat in the South to Haifa in the North missiles rained from Gaza and north of Haifa missiles rained from the Lebanese border.  The Hezbollah shot missiles on northern Israel in solidarity with the Hamas, their terrorist brothers in Gaza.  I just heard the Greek Orthodox Christian Priest from Gaza speaking from the roof of his church in an interview and pointing to the church yard and reporting that the Hamas was shooting rockets from… Read More


By Joseph Shulam Israel is at war with a terrorist organization called Hamas in Gaza.  The same terrorist ideology and tactics and goals of the Hamas are shared with El-Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah, the Islamic Jihad, Boku Haram in Nigeria, and others around the world.  All these terrorist organization are fighting, not for land, and not for financial issues, they are fighting for their religious ideology against Jews, Christians, and all non-Muslims.   They state clearly that they want the elimination of Israel, and the spread of Islam around the whole world. Israel is not fighting against the Palestinian people, nor is… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List July 25, 2014

by Joseph Shulam – in Jerusalem, Israel Israel is at war again!  This war is something that none of us want and all of us regret.  Any time that we have to war is not a good time.  Anytime that we have to send our men and women to battle is a punishment from God.  War is not a gift from God.  War is not a blessing even when you win the war and even when the war is a righteous and just war it is still a test and a punishment. “And Moses said to the people, “Do not… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List July 17 2014

Jerusalem Prayer List July 17 2014 Israel is under rocket fire already ten days.  More than 1000 rockets have been fired against our cities, villages, Kibbutz Communities, and specially against Ashkelon, Ashdod, Jerusalem, Beer-Sheva, and Tel-Aviv.  The “Iron Dome” Israel’s defense system against missiles and rockets has been able to shoot down 90% of the missiles and rockets that the Hamas from Gaza has fired.  They fire their missiles against Israel with the express wish to kill civilians, women, children, the old and the young.  Israel has done it’s best to defend the population from these rockets and missiles.  The… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List – July 11, 2014

By Joseph Shulam – from home. Today we returned home after five weeks of travel in Finland and the United States.  This was a special trip because we did much teaching and also spent a few days in between teachings with both Barry’s family and Danah and Noaam.  It was the first time in several years that our whole family was together and praise God for this opportunity and for the joy of being with children and grandchildren and our daughter-in-law. The teaching was interesting.  Returning to Lipscomb University after many years is a real challenge.  There is no doubt… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List – July 2, 2014

Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry Jerusalem Prayer List - July 2, 2014 By Joseph Shulam – from Nashville, Tennessee The Lipscomb University Summer Celebration is over.  I believe that I have given a good set of teaching in this lectureship, and a copy of my lessons will be posted soon on and also on our face book and web page.  This is not really the most important event that took place this week.  The most important event for me is the finding of the bodies of the three Yeshiva boys who were kidnapped 18 days ago and probably immediately murdered.  These were young… Read More

The Jerusalem Prayer List June 26, 2014

By Joseph Shulam – from Mount Juliet, Tennessee, USA I received this article today from a dear brother in Brazil.  It is a very interesting viewpoint that needs to be at least pondered.  Normally I write my own ideas in this prayer list.  This is an exception and I am including this short article for you to consider.  Right in the start of this article I would like to state that words like “stupid” and “filth” and “ignorance” to describe the Arab or Muslim population is an unfair and not totally true.  I would myself not use these words to… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List June 5, 2014

Joseph Shulam We have arrived in Finland and to the city of Nokia.  Our brothers and sisters have received us royally. It is always a great joy to come and visit and fellowship with brothers and sisters who have such a kindred spirit and the same commitment to the Restoration of the New Testament Church and the restoration of Israel. For us it is a real work of the Holy Spirit that makes out of strangers instant brothers and friends and ties us with an eternal bond through the resurrected life of Yeshua.  A brother from the North Atlanta Church… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List – May 22, 2014

By Joseph Shulam The book of Revelation has three chapters in the very beginning of the book that address seven churches of Asia Minor, i.e. Turkey of today.  These seven churches receive no little criticism by the angel of Revelation, and a little praise.  What is interesting to me is the following:  Would any leader of the Lord’s Body today have the courage and the authority to write such criticism and such praise to any church today?  Would it be “politically correct” and acceptable for the leaders of the evangelical churches or denominations or the undenominational denominations to evaluate the… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List May 15, 2014

By Joseph Shulam Transition is both one of the most challenging times and the most wonderful times.  Transition is challenging because you are on the move.  Things around you are changing.  You are changing.  There is a degree of insecurity in times of transition, and insecurity makes us uncomfortable and anxious and worrisome.  On the other hand a period of transition almost always is accompanied with hope for improvement and a time of cleaning up the cob-webs of the past that muddled the view and obstructed the scenery.  In the period of transition there is always new energy flowing with… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List – May 8 2014 by Joseph Shulam In a sleepy fisherman’s village on the north side of the Sea of Galilee five of the twelve Disciples of Yeshua lived with their families.  The village of Capernaum was the home of Peter and Andrew, and John and Jacob (who in the English Bible only is called James, because King James paid for the translation), they were the sons of Zebadiah, and Alpheus. If you want visit the village of Capernaum today you can come by car or bus or if you wish you can come by boat and… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List May 1, 2014

This is going to be a very short and simple Prayer List.  We have been almost the whole day in the construction site of the building and we finalized the choice of flooring and stairs for the building.  We have also finalized the placing of electrical and communication services and things are going well in the building.  The financial side is still a matter for fervent prayer.  I am not going to write anything more than to just say that the Lord is in control of all things and we have full faith and confidence in His Will and in… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List April 25, 2014

By Joseph Shulam Things have been very busy here in Jerusalem.  There is a steady stream of guests from all around the world and it is a real privilege to receive people who pray for Israel and for Netivyah and host them and show them what the Lord is going in this wonderful country and in the city of Jerusalem.  Jerusalem was always a city of pilgrimage and a city that has welcomed pilgrims.  There is a difference between just a regular tourists that comes to see stones and ancient walls, and a pilgrim who comes to reconnect and establish… Read More

The Jerusalem Prayer List – April 17, 2014

By Joseph Shulam The first item for prayer is for the hundreds of high-school age children who have been missing from the shipwreck off the shore of Korea.  This is a national tragedy for our Korean brothers and sisters and we must pray to God and beg The Almighty One to show mercy and give strength to the families of these children.  We must pray for the Lord to turn this tragedy into a search for faith and rededication for those families who endured this great loss and tragedy.   Second, Please pray for Israel and the Palestinians.  There has… Read More

Jerusalem Prayer List April 9, 2014

This Sabbath is the last Sabbath before the Passover.  It is called “The Great Sabbath.”  The reason it is called “The Great Sabbath” is because on this Sabbath the reading from the Prophets, the Haftara” is from the last chapter of the Prophet Malachi.  There we are introduced to Elijah the prophet who is supposed to come to unite the hearts of the Fathers with their children, and the hearts of the children with their fathers.  Also the “Great Day of the Lord” comes from this same chapter.  Preparation for the Passover are at their highest point because on Monday… Read More
