I was shocked. It was unexpected, but tragedies like the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting always are.

I learned of this horrific event during my School of the Prophetic. I instructed my students to do a prophetic exercise I call “Current Events” where they prophesy into a news headline.

While they were praying, I decided to look at the news headlines to find an example so I could demonstrate. To my surprise, I read headlines about a massacre in a synagogue in Pittsburgh. It shook me as I saw what the enemy was planning next.

The massacre left 11 dead in an attack during worship services. According to CBS News, the victims ranged in age from 54 to 97, the latter of which was a Holocaust survivor.

Police sources tell KDKA’s Andy Sheehan the gunman, Robert Bowers, walked into the building and yelled, “All Jews must die.”

According to 2016 FBI statistics (the most recent year data is available), there has been a nearly 5 percent hate crimes increase since 2015 and 10 percent since 2014. The FBI reports 1,273 crimes committed due to religious hatred—half those were against Jews.

Anti-Semitism is rising in the US, and this is just the beginning. The Holy Spirit showed me Ant-Semitism is going to ramp up. Most people aren’t aware that there are nearly as many Jews in America as there are in Israel. America is a stronghold for the Jewish people and therefore will become a greater target of terrorism in the years ahead.

In my School of the Prophetic, I heard the Lord say:

“This is indeed a day of demarcation where you will begin to see more public, more vicious attacks upon My people. You will see them targeted for abuse and targeted for discrimination. You will see this because I am preparing a way for the Aliyah. I am preparing a way for them to return to their land. I am preparing a way in an unwelcome environment.

“As for you, you shall stand for them and you shall bless them and curse them not. You shall bless them with your prayers and you shall bless them with your words. And you will not be known as a people who tears down a people that I am building. For My heart is still with My chosen nation. My heart is still with My people.

“And I am charging you today with a renewed response of intercession to press in for My people, to bless Israel and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem but not just the Jerusalem that is in the Middle East but the Jerusalem that is here, represented by My people that are round and about you.

“They need know My Son. They need to know Him as Messiah, the one that came to sacrifice His blood and His body on the cross for their eternal redemption So begin even now to press into strategies to see My people saved because I am bringing them to a new place even as the attacks against them begin to arise. I will place a hedge of protection around them according to the intensity of your prayers because I want them to come into the knowledge of the truth.”

    Last week while driving home highlighted was ey out of word KeyBank, next was highlighted was the doors on a Catholic Church next was highlighted garage doors which used to be transport services. A few days later prayed in Hebrew for the peace of Jerusalem. Friday night family noticed paracites and was not always walking in spirit. This spring on a Thursday God showed me he was jealous for His people to know Him, I was crying and heartbroken in this time. I will pray and interceed.
    may God strengthen the intercessors and bring up more. Open heavens was word I awoke one day last week. And one feeling. I hope you understand and may we love one another, truly Love.

    Thank you for this prophetic word. Wow, what a word! It speaks directly to the heart of our ministry. Please pray for the ministry I work for, Operation Exodus USA, which is a Christian ministry that assists the Jewish people in performing Aliyah. We’re trusting God to help us meet the demand and be there for any Jewish person that needs our assistance. This year alone, we’ve exceeded our total number for 2017! We haven’t said ‘no’ to not one yet, and we’re not expecting to, in Jesus Name. You can check us out at http://www.operationexodususa.org or aliyahusa.org. Thank you for your prayers.
