SOUTH AFRICA AHEAD FOR PJTN
There is never a good time for me to leave Israel. It has been a trip filled with fulfillment as I’ve been in the presence of the Prime Minister, the President of Israel and top leadership who have for me further underscored the value of and need for PJTN at this moment in world history. While in Israel, I was filled with renewed energy and commitment with each step taken in the Holy Land and I have re-dedicated the mission ahead of us to the hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I am accepting only victories for PJTN on the march forward!
Ahead is South Africa where I arrive this afternoon in Johannesburg to begin our long awaited series of meetings in Pretoria on Sunday. The opportunity to speak in both Johannesburg and Capetown will follow and I am thrilled with the report that significant attendance is expected on all dates—this thanks in great part to the tremendous dedication and hard work of Cheryl Charles, Executive Director of PJTN in South Africa. Major Christian leadership pastors and tribal kings from all regions have outreached their positive intentions to attend for which I am most grateful.
Perhaps nowhere on earth has antisemitism grown more rapidly from the seeds of “replacement theology” within the ranks of Christians—fueled as it has been from the pulpits of Christian churches across South Africa. The false teaching that God’s promise to Israel has been transferred to Christians and that Israel has lost His favor is gasoline to the torch of antisemitism. South Africa too has played a historical role in the links of BDS and the rise of the ‘new antisemitism’ being seen worldwide. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) emerged at the 2001 UN sponsored World Conference on Racism, and Racial Intolerance which was held in Durban, South Africa. What ultimately was born of the meeting was a document called the ‘Declaration of Principles’ that birthed the antisemitic BDS Movement, declaring Israel to be a racist apartheid state and accusing it of committing crimes against humanity, demanding punishment and world censure, as well as the imposing of world sanctions on the diplomatic, economic, social and military fronts between all nations and the Jewish nation. We must change minds and hearts in this wonderful country!
The mission coming up will be challenging but South Africa must both repent and heal to become a strong ally of Israel and the Jewish people. Please pray for my messaging and its seed to fall on good ground!
I’ve continued to have good news on our “Gideon’s Army” challenge! Since the original $1,000 challenge from Judith in New York last week, we have already this week seen increase challenges of $2.000 from a Tennessee Watchmen, followed by a $1,000 increase challenge gift from Marilyn, a PJTN Watchman in California!
Please accept the challenge and prayerfully consider your gift match!
As I mentioned on Tuesday, PJTN continues to wear our “hate list” definition from the Southern Poverty Law Center as a true badge of honor! We are trusting in the war against antisemitism that God’s word is true—as it was in the days of Joseph when he faced those who had persecuted him. He said to his brothers: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
We must continue to work for a world where no Jew—young or old—lives within the dark hatred of antisemitism!
Remember: What we at PJTN value as freedom of speech and defensible expressions of truth, the SPLC defines as hate.
Our faith, family and freedoms are at stake—as well as PJTN’s tireless voice in the war on antisemitism! We will not allow our voices to be silenced! We will not lose ground to our enemies in this battle!
You can make a difference!
Please let me know I can count on your support in this battle! We will need to raise $250,000 by the end of 2019 to achieve all that needs to be accomplished at hand by year’s end, as well as be prepared to stand in any legal battles that may arise from this challenge from the SPLC.
PJTN will continue to assure that your voice will never be silenced.
Thank you for your prayers as we travel and for victory in South Africa!
