WE NEED TO PRAY...We need to pray for mercy. And we need to pray for clarity. We need to pray for clear paths to be made forward. We need to pray for God to protect the Christian community and the Kurdish community in Northern Syria, that tonight is wondering if this is the end of their existence on the soil that they once called home.

Lord, we just pray and we agree all over the world together right now, as we're tuning in this amazing thing of technology, this gift of technology, that we get to agree together in prayer and I just want to invite you, everyone who's listening to this, to agree in prayer.

Lord we pray for the protection of the families, the children, the mothers, the vulnerable, the weak tonight, who are right now literally in holes in the ground, hiding; the people who are on the move who just left their homes that are sleeping out in fields tonight; we pray for those who are at this moment, bleeding out, who can't get out of the places where they're trapped; Lord for the children that are screaming in agony. Right now, just thinking about these places that are under bombardment, hearing the screams of the children, we're asking you for mercy and protection upon these communities, whether they're Muslims, whether they're Christians, whether they're socialists and atheists, Lord. We're asking for the vulnerable and the weak. Lord, we're asking You to protect them and keep them safe.

And Father, we're asking for the wicked, for those who spilled the blood of the innocent, Lord that You would execute judgment upon their heads. We ask You for righteousness to flow, Lord, like a river and a mighty flowing stream. Lord, we ask You for justice.

Lord we ask You as well for mercy on them, even the enemies and the persecutors, Lord, that You would enlighten their eyes, Lord, and there would be the quickening of conscience in those who are on the ground right now carrying out this dark and evil deed.

Lord, we're asking you for the collision of mercy and justice on the ground in Syria. Lord, we're asking You to stay the hand of the Turkish regime, Lord, in conducting more violence and more bloodshed and more genocide, Lord, on this land that has known so much genocide. Lord, we're asking You to break this cycle. We know that wars will continue until He comes, but Lord we're asking You for this part of the world, to have mercy on Rojava, Lord, this pocket in Northern Syria that as of a few weeks ago was one of the quietest and most peaceful areas in the area.

And Lord, we're asking you tonight for United States President, for Vice President Pence, for Pompeo, we're asking for the whole administration, God, that you would shine light and clarity.

And, Lord, where there is confusion and division, Lord, where the plans of the evil one, Lord, are prevailing right now for the destruction of life, Lord, we're asking You that you would break these purposes. And Father we're asking that You would intervene in these scenarios, that You would break in, Lord, with light and clarity and truth and hope, God.

And we’re asking You tonight for the Kurds, we cry out for the Kurds tonight in the Middle East, Lord. And we're asking, God, bring beauty from these ashes. As we're hurting, we can hear the nails being driven into the gallows that Haman is building tonight. And Lord, we ask You, would this be one of those moments where you flip the script and do something unexpected and profound, Lord; and that you would do something in our day they would just blow our minds for the protection and the vindication of the weak, and the persecuted, and the trodden down, Lord. You are near them. You are with them and we know how history goes. History is full of calamity and injustice and atrocities, but you are near the brokenhearted. And tonight, Lord, we cry out and we ask You to be near the brokenhearted.

Lord, we ask you for forgiveness on the United States that just committed an act of great injustice on a people who've done a great deed for the nations of the earth and facing a great evil. And Lord, we're asking you to show mercy on America. Lord, we're asking you for the due judgment for these decisions that are going to steal the lives of so many. Lord, we’re asking You, we don't deserve it, but we're asking you for mercy.

We cry out to you. We cry out to you for, Lord, hope to spring up from the ground in Syria, this nation that has been so ravaged by war and the plans of the evil one.

Lord, we love you and we bless you. We ask You to lead us and guide us in all You would have us do, in all that's happening in the nations in these days. And give us, Lord, a prophetic Spirit to discern what You're saying and what You're doing as these things continue to unfold.

We love You, Lord.

In Jesus name.

(The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, often referred to as Rojava, is a de facto autonomous region in northeastern Syria. It consists of self-governing sub-regions in the areas of Afrin, Jazira, Euphrates, Raqqa, Tabqa, Manbij and Deir Ez-Zor.)

This is the prayer of Dalton Thomas of Christian Alliance International. The organization is being heavily censored by social media and the press.

SALVATION

S A L V A T I O N… "Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christ's death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.” Hebrews 9:27-28


God revealed the foundation for His plan of salvation in Leviticus 23:27, 32 when He said, “The Day of Atonement will be on the tenth day of the seventh month…This special day of rest continues from that evening until the next evening.” Leviticus 23:27, 32.


Appointed by God during the wilderness Exodus of the Israelites, this special day is called Yom Kippur. (“Yom” rhymes with home, “Kippur" pronounced “key poor”, accent on poor) “Yom” means day, from sunset to sunset, as marked by God in Leviticus 23:32. “Kippur” is from the Hebrew word “kaphar” (kah-farrrr') meaning “to cover”. The concept of our English equivalent, “atonement” is “covering”. Put the two words together: Day of Covering or Day of Atonement.


The covering or atonement was first appointed by God as the blood sacrifice of an innocent animal. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement (covering) for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:11.


Hebrews 9:1-28 binds the “Old” together with the “New”, pointing us straight to Jesus as the Perfect Blood Sacrifice! He did away with the need for atonement for our sins. His precious blood blotted them out entirely!


(1-5) “That first plan contained directions for worship, and a specially designed place of worship. A large outer tent was set up. The lampstand, the table, and "the bread of presence" were placed in it. This was called "the Holy Place." Then a curtain was stretched, and behind it a smaller, inside tent set up. This was called "the Holy of Holies." In it were placed the gold incense altar and the gold-covered Ark of the Covenant containing the gold urn of manna, Aaron's rod that budded, the covenant tablets, and the angel-wing-shadowed mercy seat. But we don't have time to comment on these now."


(6-10) "After this was set up, the priests went about their duties in the large tent. Only the high priest entered the smaller, inside tent, and then only once a year, offering a blood sacrifice for his own sins and the people's accumulated sins. This was the Holy Spirit's way of showing with a visible parable that as long as the large tent stands, people can't just walk in on God. Under this system, the gifts and sacrifices can't really get to the heart of the matter, can't assuage the conscience of the people, but are limited to matters of ritual and behavior. It's essentially a temporary arrangement until a complete overhaul could be made."


(11-15) "But when the Messiah arrived, high priest of the superior things of this new covenant, he bypassed the old tent and its trappings in this created world and went straight into heaven's "tent"—the true Holy Place—once and for all. He also bypassed the sacrifices consisting of goat and calf blood, instead using his own blood as the price to set us free once and for all. If that animal blood and the other rituals of purification were effective in cleaning up certain matters of our religion and behavior, think how much more the blood of Christ cleans up our whole lives, inside and out. Through the Spirit, Christ offered himself as an unblemished sacrifice, freeing us from all those dead-end efforts to make ourselves respectable, so that we can live all out for God."


(16-17) "Like a will that takes effect when someone dies, the new covenant was put into action at Jesus' death. His death marked the transition from the old plan to the new one, canceling the old obligations and accompanying sins, and summoning the heirs to receive the eternal inheritance that was promised them. He brought together God and his people in this new way.


(18-22) "Even the first plan required a death to set it in motion. After Moses had read out all the terms of the plan of the law—God's "will"—he took the blood of sacrificed animals and, in a solemn ritual, sprinkled the document and the people who were its beneficiaries. And then he attested its validity with the words, "This is the blood of the covenant commanded by God." He did the same thing with the place of worship and its furniture. Moses said to the people, "This is the blood of the covenant God has established with you." Practically everything in a will hinges on a death. That's why blood, the evidence of death, is used so much in our tradition, especially regarding forgiveness of sins."

(23-26) "That accounts for the prominence of blood and death in all these secondary practices that point to the realities of heaven. It also accounts for why, when the real thing takes place, these animal sacrifices aren't needed anymore, having served their purpose. For Christ didn't enter the earthly version of the Holy Place; he entered the Place Itself, and offered himself to God as the sacrifice for our sins. He doesn't do this every year as the high priests did under the old plan with blood that was not their own; if that had been the case, he would have to sacrifice himself repeatedly throughout the course of history. But instead he sacrificed himself once and for all, summing up all the other sacrifices in this sacrifice of himself, the final solution of sin.

(27-28) "Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christ's death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.”

We can see how this all comes together PERFECTLY if we look through the lens of God’s appointments on His calendar for all of mankind. Jesus fulfilled God's Holy Days, appointed in the Spring, with His death on Passover (Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us. l Corinthians 5:7); his burial during the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Jesus said, “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread also which I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh.” John 6; 51); and His resurrection on the holy day of Firstfruits. (“But now Christ is risen from the dead and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” 1 Corinthians 15:20); Fifty days ( seven weeks plus one day) after Jesus’ resurrection on the Feast of Firstfruits, when His promised Holy Spirit fell upon a gathering of the Disciples and others celebrating God’s appointed holy day of Pentecost, the church as we know it today was born. (Acts 2)

The Holy Days occurring on God’s fall calendar have yet to be entirely fulfilled by Jesus. These days will culminate in the end of days when Jesus comes to establish His throne. The first fall holy day  is appointed on the 1st day of God’s 7th month, the evening of September 10th on our 2019 calendar. Known as the Day of Trumpets, or Day of Blowing, it is the day that Jesus refers to with the word “Watch”. This ancient day announces King Jesus’ imminent return with the heralding of 100 trumpets. https://www.facebook.com/fontanacommunitychurch/posts/2469683926445115

The evening of October 8 on our 2019 Gregorian calendar begins the 10th day of God’s 7th month, the anniversary of the very date the Almighty appropriated a blood sacrifice to cover the sins of His people: The Day of Atonement. More and more Christians are convinced this Day will be marked by the salvation of the Jewish nation as they come face-to-face in repentance before their Warrior Messiah when He comes in triumph to deliver them from imminent annihilation by their enemies.

The last holy day to be fulfilled by Jesus is appointed to begin on the 14th day of the same month on God’s calendar, October 13 on our 2019 calendar. That evening marks the beginning of God’s 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, culminating in the 8th Last Great Day. ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.’” Revelation 21:3. Jesus will rule on earth for a millennium as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

“And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely...
