David Demien’s Visit 20th-21st April 2022

 

David Demien came back to HOPE Nazareth for two meetings in April. On Thursday 20th, about 35 young people from across the Galilee came together a powerful time of worship and fellowship. Declarations were made over the young people for them to have a fresh baptism of love for the Lord. David Demien shared a beautiful message about the revelation of being transformed as we behold Him. As we look into His face, it is as though we look into a mirror and are transformed from glory to glory. This was such a precious time of receiving revelation from the heart of God that as we behold Him we receive more revelation of His heart and that revelation draws us still closer to Him.

On the 21st April, we had another powerful time of worship and sharing hearts with pastors and leaders from the region. Many of the leaders shared what they were seeing and sensing about these times and the need for unity. There was a powerful moment when we held hands together, standing as an army. The power of God fell as we declared that we would cover one another’s backs and not allow any accusation to come among the brethren. Then we broke bread and declared the power of the blood of Jesus.

They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.

Revelation 12:11
Through this day and the unity that we shared together, God was breaking the power of the accuser of the brethren.

A Vision during the Global Communion Gathering in Jerusalem – April 18th, 2022

 

This is a vision that I had while taking part in the Global Communion at Christchurch, Jerusalem. Jews, Arabs and internationals had come together for this event during Passover 2022.

During worship, as we were exalting the Lord, I saw a vision of a door opened in heaven and the cloud of witnesses appeared from this open portal in the spirit. Then I noticed two angels appeared on either side of this door, one was on the right and the other on the left, each had a cup in his hand that looked like a bowl. I saw that the cups/bowls began to overflow with a substance, the first cup was overflowing with blood and the second with water. All of a sudden the angels took the two cups and began to pour them out over the land of Jerusalem in particular. Then, as the two ingredients mingled together, I noticed that they became golden oil that was being poured out onto the land, and then a fountain began to flow from the ground of Jerusalem that was flowing with oil. The oil began to flow through the streets of Jerusalem, and went on throughout the land of Israel and to the nations!

I heard also in my spirit the verse from Zechariah 13:1-2:

“On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity. “On that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be remembered no more,” declares the Lord Almighty. “I will remove both the prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land.”

Also, another verse that was highlighted was 1 John 5:6-12:

“This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify:  the[ Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.  We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.  And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

Prophetic Assignment on Mount Hermon – 27th March 2022

On Sunday 27th March, Rania went to pray over the northern borders of Israel with a few sisters. They prayed for God’s protection over the land in response to a vision in which they had seen tent pegs being driven into the ground over the northern borders of Israel. They took with them prophetic elements – bread, wine, salt, oil and a tent peg, asking for confirming signs from God. The exact time that they stepped out of the car was 2:22 and they noticed a horse in the street nearby where they had parked. They prayed Isaiah 22:22, Daniel 2:21-22, Joel 2:21-22 and wrote those verses on the tent peg before striking it into the ground. 

The very moment that they began to pray for the northern borders, another horse appeared and started to neigh like the sound of war. After praying, they went to check where the horse came from. It was in an enclosure and had climbed a steep hill to see Rania and her group, looking directly at them (you can see the steep bank it climbed in the photo below). The Lord was confirming that He was with them and releasing the angelic hosts with chariots to be stationed at the borders. They prayed and declared that there will be a highway between Assyria and Egypt passing through that area (Isaiah 19:23) and that reconciliation and healing will take place. 

Bat Tsion Women’s Conference 1st April 2022

About 65 Jewish Messianic sisters gathered in Nazareth for the annual Bat Tsion Women’s Conference. Rania and several Arab Deborahs joined them. Rania spoke from Isaiah 62:3, “You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.”

The theme of the conference was crowns. Rania brought a diadem with her (see the photo above where Karen Davis is wearing this crown). The conference included prophetic acts placing crowns and diadems on each other’s heads as we crowned one another as God’s beautiful daughters with His glory and splendour.  

Rania spoke about being crowned with glory and the beauty that the bride carries before the Lord. She explained the difference between crowns and diadems: a crown is a reward of victory or a mark of honor, while a diadem is an ornamental headband worn as a badge of royalty.

Rania also spoke about walking in our royal identity before the Lord. When we walk in our true identity, we will see the blessings of God, we co-reign and rule with Christ, and are destined to carry His glory. 

“All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold. In many-colored robes she is led to the king, with her virgin companions following behind her.”

Psalm 45:13 & 14

Rania prayed with and ministered to several of the women and saw some creative miracles. Please see some of the highlights of the conference in the photos above and below.

14 Day Daniel Fast until 21st April

Please join us in prayer and fasting until 21st April for Israel and for an end to the terror attacks that have taken place recently in busy locations across the land. On 22nd March, 4 people were killed in a shooting outside a mall in Beer Sheva, on 27th March, 2 people were killed in a shooting in Hadera, on 29th March, 5 people were killed in Bnei Barak (including the first policeman on the scene, an Arab Christian from Nof HaGalil – see below), on 7th April, 3 people were killed in a busy street in Tel Aviv.  Our hearts are broken for the loss of so many precious lives over the past few weeks.

“In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there. But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭37:10-11‬ ‭‬‬

A Hero from Nof HaGalil.
HOPE’s new premises is in Nof HaGalil, a residential area just outside of Nazareth where Arabs and Jews live together. Amir Khoury (30), a Christian Arab
was the first policeman on the scene in Bnei Brak on 29th March.  He killed the terrorist but also lost his own life. Bnei Brak is an Ultra Orthodox (Haredi) town near Tel Aviv. Thousands of Israelis (religious and secular, Jews and Arabs) came to Amir’s funeral. 

Eagle with Keys 16-3-22

On the first day of Purim, as we finished the 44 days of fasting for Iran and Israel, it was strategic that we received a beautiful painting from Norway. The painting is of an eagle releasing keys. 

And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
Isaiah 22:22
On this 44th day of fasting (2 x 22), God was saying to us that He is releasing the keys and increasing the authority of the Ecclesia to rule and reign with me and partner in shaping history over the nations. It is time for us to soar in the Spirit with the strength, sharp eyes and sight of eagles. The timing that the Lord orchestrated for delivery of this painting was amazing! 

2021 Year in Review

“Now there was a famine in the land, besides the former famine that was in the days of Abraham… And Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. The LORD blessed him.”
Genesis 26:1&12

2021 was another difficult year for people all over the world with the continued travel and work restrictions. Yet looking back, we can see that God blessed HOPE Nazareth with increased gatherings, prophecies and worship sessions. Then, towards the end of the year, He multiplied His blessings more than we could ever have imagined by guiding Rania to the new premises for HOPE.

As we look back on 2021, join us in giving thanks for all the blessings that God has poured out on us. The review below is in the form of a mini book in which you can turn the pages and click to see each video and article featured.

Canada, once again you will rise to release the river of healing over the nations!

Vision for Canada – By Rania Sayegh – 17-2-2022

While I was praying and interceding for Canada and the situation there, the Lord began to take me into a vision.I saw the streets of Canada and also the highways. On the streets, I saw a creature moving, swirling and spitting water out of its mouth. The creature looked like a serpent with 7 heads. People in the streets were fighting for their freedom with great courage but at the same time this creature was trying to release water to bring chaos to the land and get the people to be in a state of chaos in their souls with fear and anxiety. The Holy Spirit, impressed on my spirit that this creature is a leviathan spirit that is attacking the land!

The battle for men’s souls and the destiny of the nation is real. As I continued to intercede and pray for God’s deliverance and intervention, I saw the Lord as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah appearing on the scene. He moved through the streets and roared over the whole nation – every province, city and neighborhood. When He roared, I saw the people being filled with such courage that they began to join hands together and stand in prayer creating a wall that looked like a big, huge crown. The crown had 7 points, these points were regions where God’s family (army) was gathering and praying and standing together. When they stood together and gathered in prayer, I saw the river of life beginning to rise higher and higher – much higher than the river that the spirit of leviathan was releasing.

As the river rose to a higher level through the united prayers of the family, I saw a big scroll opened and the scriptures of Revelation 22:2 became alive at this moment of the history of the nation!

“In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
Revelation 22:2

As I continued to pray into this, the Holy Spirit began to highlight regions of gatherings and cities where it will be strategic to unlock this river:  Saskatchewan, Toronto, Vancouver, London, Cornerstone, Edmonton, and Newfoundland. As the gatherings were taking place, I saw the Lord being crowned as King of Canada and a big, huge rainbow appeared on the horizon from the west coast to the east coast of the nation.

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”
Isaiah 59:19

The Lord was highlighting to me that it’s crucial for Canada to stand firm and gather in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14 to combat the leviathan spirit on Tuesday 22/2!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14

Time Sensitive Esther Call to Prayer and Fasting for Iran and Israel

A strategic Esther call to 44 days of prayer and fasting for the rising threat from Iran towards Israel & the nations!  

In November last year, the Lord began to speak to me during a time of prayer at HOPE in which we were watching over Iran and the growing crisis  between Iran, Israel and the nations.

On the 8th of November as I was praying for Iran, I received a vision in which I saw a huge plumbline descending over Iran’s land. As the plumbline touched the land, an earthquake struck. So I began to pray and declare that the Lord will shake everything that can be shaken, specially the evil systems in the Iranian government, so that the unshakable can remain and His kingdom will advance in mighty ways.

A few days after this prayer watch, I saw in the news that there was a powerful earthquake that hit Iran with a magnitude of 6.4 on the Richter scale in southern Hormozgan province.
(https://www.tehrantimes.com/news/467037/Powerful-6-4-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-southern-Iran)

When I saw the news and that the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.4, instantly the Holy Spirit spoke to me from Isaiah 64:1-4:

Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
that the mountains would tremble before you!
As when fire sets twigs ablaze
and causes water to boil,
come down to make your name known to your enemies
and cause the nations to quake before you! 
For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
you came down, and the mountains trembled before you.
Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.

 

God was giving us a sign that He had heard our decrees and was shaking the internal structure of Iran, He will pass judgment on the evil that is taking place in the oppressive regime of the Islamic republic of Iran!
 
As we continued to watch the nation of Iran during the month of December 2021, God spoke to me through a lecture by a well-known Jewish historian named Dr. Mordechai Kidar entitled, “Will Iran’s regime collapse in 2022?” I was so drawn to this lecture that I listened to the whole 41 minutes. He explained how the anthropology of Iran is made up of so many people groups which means that the majority  are not Persian. These groups do not support the current Iranian regime. They have been waiting for a window of opportunity to start another revolution from inside the nation, turning the regime upside down again and bringing down the Islamic government. The expected timing of this possible revolution is during the week leading up to the celebration of the Iranian new year, “Noroz”. The reason for this timing is that the Wednesday preceding the Iranian year is called “Char Chambi Sori” in Farsi which means “the Wednesday of fire.”
 
On the evening of “the Wednesday of fire” everyone comes out onto the streets and lights fires. The day is known for chaos! Therefore these groups would most likely choose such a day to make an organized effort to come out onto the streets in an attempt to oppose the government. This year, “the Wednesday of Fire” falls on March the 16th. 
 
When I heard the date of “the Wednesday of Fire,” I felt instantly that the Holy Spirit was impressing on my heart to check the date that Purim falls in 2022! To my amazement, the date was also the 16th of March! 
 
When I saw this, I knew the Holy Spirit was speaking to me clearly that He is setting up something for this coming Purim, to bring judgment on the Haman spirit that has been working in Iran, and for a possible revolution that could be ignited inside the nation to bring down princes and principalities. 
 
As I continued to pray into this, I asked the Holy Spirit what He would want His watchmen to do at this time. I heard the number 44 in my spirit and realized it was connected with 22×2 from this year, 2022. I felt the Lord leading me to launch an urgent call to prayer and fasting for 44 days. This will begin on 2/2/2022, which will lead up to Purim on March 16th, which itself falls on “the Wednesday of fire” in Iran this year! 
 
After searching more on the numbers I received, 44 days of fasting and prayer, I looked to see how many years Iran’s Islamic republic has been in power. The date of the establishment of the government after the revolution was February 11th, 1979. That means on February 11th 2022, Iran’s Islamic government will have lasted 43 years and be entering into its 44th year! 
 
I knew that the Lord was speaking to me, that we are to ask Him to rend the heaven and come down over Iran and shake the regime and give courage and faith to the people of Iran to rise up and stand against this evil structure that has been threatening all the Middle East and especially the existence of Israel. 
 
After receiving this revelation from the Lord, I asked Him what He wanted us to do. He showed me that He wants the intercessors to unite globally and begin to roar His decrees over Iran and speak deliverance to her people. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is about to roar from Zion and bring vengeance over the Haman spirit that is moving in the land. Enough is enough, Aslan is on the move! 
 
This is the decree to be released on Purim 16/3/2022! 
 
The Lord will roar from Zion
and thunder from Jerusalem;
the earth and the heavens will tremble.
But the Lord will be a refuge for his people,
a stronghold for the people of Israel. 
Joel 3:16

I believe we are called to another Esther moment in history to rise as Esthers all over the world and release our verdicts and decrees over the land of Iran for deliverance from the Haman spirit. Will you join the table of the Lord that He has set before our enemies, even as Esther created a banquet and invited the King together with her enemy “Haman?” There the battle was won! Let’s create a table before our enemies and partake of the table of the Lord, the bread and wine, and unite together for a corporate release from Zion and from the nations of the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!  

We encourage you to join us daily during these 44 days and partake of the table of the Lord with bread and wine!

At the banquet of wine the king said to Esther, “What is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your request, up to half the kingdom? It shall be done!” 
Esther 5:6
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?
Esther 4:14
The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts:
Behold, I will break the bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.
I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord.
‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days:
I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord..”
Jeremiah 49:32-39
