I have been now a week in Portugal. From Lisbon to Porto in the north of Portugal and back now to Lisbon in the South of Portugal. The main objective of this trip is to consolidate the plans and the arrangements for the next major international conference for the restoration of the victims of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisition that started in 1472 and ended (if it has ever ended) in 1824. A period of approximately 350 years of hell on earth for the Jews in the Iberian peninsula and beyond. A period of several 100’s of thousands of Jews were forced to convert to Catholicism and where tens of thousands of Jews were who tried to keep their Jewish identity were tried in the courts of the church for heresy and burned to death. Now, we at Netivyah like other Jewish organizations are trying to restore the descendants of these Jews back to their roots and Jewish identity without forcing them to convert to Orthodox Judaism. With the grace of God we have been able to make things happen here that were near impossible to happen. Here is the information for you to follow:

  1. The dates of the conference; May 17-19, 2019
  2. The place of the conference; Castelo de Vide, Portugal
  3. The cost of the conference – just arrive there and participate. All you need is to get there and play a modest price for lodging and food.
  4. After the conference there is a prayer tour in four cities where Jews were tried by the church court and executed for being Jews and for practicing some Jewish practices like keeping the Passover or lighting a candle on Friday evening. This is a very important tour for intercession and prayer and repentance and preparation for the great revival and restoration of the Jewish people from the Spanish speaking world back to Israel and their roots.
  5. There will be very important speakers and teachers from Israel, from Portugal, from Asia, and the United States and England and Holland and from other places.
  6. The tour will be rich in both information and spiritual battles for this major historical breakthrough that is so important and needed for the restoration of these Jews and for Israel and Aliyah.

Now how to make the arrangements for this trip and find out the price:

The person in control of the plans and prices is Ana Mendes from the Osiris travel agency. Her contact information is here:

I want to repeat that this tour is not an issue of a joy ride and visiting important places. This tour is a part of a major spiritual battle for the release of millions of Jews who have been captive by the Catholic Church for near 400 years, just like the Israelites in Egypt, and now it is time to release them. The battle in Egypt and in the entrance to the land of promise today is just as intense and as important as it was in the days of Moses and Aaron. You need to make a sacrifice to come and participate in this battles. The city of Castelo de Vide, the mayor and the secretariat and the administration are investing money and time to make this conference a success.

The truth is that I almost “through in the towel” and was ready to give it all up, but I saw the secular mayor of the city stand up and fight to make this possible. The city is spending a lot of Money to make an atonement for history. We must be there to help open the doors of Israel to immigration of these lost Jews of the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal). Important people are making sacrifice of time and money to participate and join the battle for the liberation of these victims of the hate, anti-semitism, sectarianism, and fake Christianity. I expect you too to make a major effort to come and pray and intercede and learn and participate in this major event in the history of our time.

The first conference was the same thing. People were reluctant and did not think that anything good could come from such a small conference. In 2010 the conference in this same place changed the history of the Anussim / Marrano Jews by changing the awareness around the world that these victims actually exist today and continue to suffer and they want to come home to Israel and to their Jewish roots.

Please make an effort, save your money and join this conference to pray, to learn, to encourage, and to enable Aliyah of these lost Jews in the Spanish speaking world. Please if you have questions – write me copy everyone listed above and we will find a solution for you.

Beside all of the above Portugal is beautiful in the sprinting time! You will enjoy it immensely.

I am not listing the important people who have already made a commitment to come and confirmed their coming for obviously security reasons. But we already have a big roster of ambassadors and diplomats and academics and others who can make a major contribution to the future fulfillment of these divine prophetic goals for the church and for Israel.

This weeks Torah reading fits the spirit of these times: Moses and Aaron are standing before Pharaoh and delivering the last plagues over Egypt and allowing Pharaoh make choices either to release the children of Israel or to continue hardening his heart. Well, he made the wrong choices and both he and his household and all of Egypt had to pay the price. The Lord’s people did come out of Egypt and the glory of God had the upper hand over the Egyptian hordes of chariots and soldiers.

We should know that every time that men contended with God the hand of God was always on the upper hand. In the end of history it will still be the same thing. People will think that all hope is lost and that there is no salvation left for the righteous, but at the right time in the right way the light of God will shine and the trumpet will sound and the enemy will retreat and the children of God will return home with shouts of joy and jubilations. Be among the redeemed and return home with joy!

Please pray for Israel – there is an election scheduled for the government of Israel on April 9th, just a few days before the Passover Holiday. The Israeli political scene is being split into splinters. There is a chance that our Prime Minister will be inedited with serious crimes of receiving bribes. The whole country is rocking and rolling of everyone against everyone in the political arena. Israel needs your prayers for peace, and unity, and charity between our leaders and among the people. We don’t need to splinter this nation at this time when the world is watching us. Our own dishonor brings dishonor to the LORD God who is the father of all of creation. Pray, pray, pray, for us and continue to stand with Israel – Israel is the end time panacea for the whole world. It is the devil’s work to confuse and create confusion and division and dishonor. We ask God for mercy and wisdom for this nation and for the leadership of our nation.

Please pray for Netivyah and for the Roeh Israel congregation. The challenges that stand before us and the opportunities that the Lord has put before us are really great and we need your prayers and your support is very important. The Lord is giving us challenges and also opportunities.

Please pray for Marcia and me, and for Barry our son and his family and Danah our daughter and for our granddaughter Noaam. Pray especially for me. This Next week, I shall be teaching in Amsterdam, Holland. The teaching will be from the book of Ezekiel from Sunday January 20-23, 2019. The place will be in the building that Beit Yeshua congregation meets near the Rai in Amsterdam. It is free and you are welcome after you register. Please pray for me and pray for the spiritual battle that is raging in Europe these days. The Lord of victory has to be victorious.

Please remember our dear brother Jacob Damkani in your prayers. He is still no back to himself, but he is well enough to go home from the hospital and that makes him much happier and of course it makes Elisheva his faithful wife much happier to have Jacov back home. Please keep Jacov and Elisheva in your prayers.

Keep a dear sister in the Lord named Courtney in your prayers. I am adding two very important prayer requests: Amir the son of Amira – is a young man a father and a husband and a nephew of some of our very close Arab/Palestinian friends. He has a very serious cancer and needs the LORD’s hands of mercy to touch him with healing. The other family that needs healing is in Sweden, Tertu and Tapio Luca. They are true prayer warriors for Israel and for Netivyah, and they too need healing from serious health issues.

Please continue praying for baby Lion from the Huch family in DFW. Little Lion is doing better in the last week and is back receiving Chemo-Therapy.

Please continue to pray for our Jewish brother Hillel from Helsinki. Pray for Patty, Andrea and Tineke are all in Netherlands and need healing from God. Continue to Pray for Julia and Victor our dear sister and brother in Jerusalem. Both need healing and God’s help. Please add a dear sister that is suffering from prejudice in Switzerland. Her name is Paula and she needs divine breakthrough.

Please keep praying for a dear sister named Zhou WenriIan living in China. There is a dear Pastor Isaac in Chenai, India, who has a deep love for the Lord and for Israel. He is sick with kidney problems and needs a dialysis treatment several times per week.

I am also asking you to pray for a dear sister in China that is doing so much for the Kingdom of God – her name is Ema! She has a big burden for a big school that needs the Lord to bless it and open up all the venues of blessing and enable success both in the physical and spiritual realm.

Margareta, keep her in your prayers she is a dear woman who is going through some real hardship and anguish for her faith.

Pray for Um Abu-Eid is a dear old Arab/Palestinian sister. Keep the following brothers who are improving with their health, but still need God’s merciful hand to touch them with healing, George, Gary, Melanie, Aharon, our dear brother Yuri Marianenko has died this last week and has gone to be home with his maker. Please pray for the Marianenko family as they sit seven days to morn their father and husband and grandfather. These brothers and sister you’re your prayer and your intercession for them and their health conditions: Sarit, Ahuva, Leah, Ilana, Miraim, Yehuda H., David Stern, Paulo, Noami, Tim Tucker, Anne-Mirjami, Satu-Maria and Anna-Majia, Sinni Tuuli, Erki and Sirpa, Keijo and Salme, Evelina, Eva H., Horace and June Marcia’s father and mother, Marcelo’s parents. Curita Sensei, the Abe family, Toru, Takeo Sensei, Daisuke Sensei, Tomoko San, Sadako San, Yumi, her husband has just died last week, and keep praying for her father, Pastor Oharah in Okinawa.

Please pray Ritva Huhtala and for sister Oksanen they need prayer for illness. Please pray for Louisa and Tony in Hong Kong. I have special concern for our dear brother Goh and his family, and for Sister Christy, Sister Laurel, and for Brother Michael Knezevich. I want to add a brother from Brazil who is living in Portugal now and is having some serious family problems. His name is: Ismael Alves.

If you would pray for those whom you know that need this prayer – the Lord will surly cover those for whom you pray and those for whom I pray. It is hard enough to live in this world and work and business-related issues make it harder and as much as we pray for the spiritual issues and health issues.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and believe in God’s promises!
