A Day of Remembrance. A Day of Celebration.

Billye Brim Blog

Sunday Evening

May 12, 2024

 

I just came back inside my room. I had stepped outside on this balmy desert evening a few minutes before 8 PM. I knew that a one-minute siren would sound throughout the state of  Israel to mark the start of Yom HaZikaron. In English that’s Remembrance Day. A Day for the Fallen Soldiers of the Wars of Israel and Victims of Terrorism. 

From an editorial in the Jerusalem Post today entitled “Amid an Ongoing War, We Salute Israel’s Fallen”

This year’s events will be unlike any held beforehand. Not only do we mourn the huge number of members of security forces and victims of terrorists killed since October 7, we also pray for the soldiers still fighting in the war against Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as for the return of the hostages—alive and dead—still held in Gaza.

In this Land of the Bible, the days are seen as God created them. The evening and the morning make up the day. So tomorrow at 11 there will be a two-minute siren after which memorial ceremonies will be held throughout the country, most of them at military cemeteries.

Then on Tuesday, the country will remember the 76th birthday of the modern state of Israel. That oh-so-important day in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy is usually celebrated with joyful exhilaration. But this year, it was deemed inappropriate. It will be a more sober remembrance.

From another article in the Jerusalem Post today entitled “From Victimhood to Statehood: The Holocaust’s Legacy and Israel’s Power,” by Joshua M. Davidson

… the calls for an “intifada revolution,” the glorification of Hamas, claims that “Zionists don’t deserve to live” [and I might add, “from the river to the sea”]—these are not protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government or its policies, or even against Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. These are protests against Israel’s existence. And protests against Israel’s existence are protests against Jewish existence.

Back home, families are remembering mothers. And that is right and good. But I am remembering just what this is all about. God said He would bring them home. He did. And He is. And He will establish them in the prophetic future as the head of His coming earthly kingdom. That is very, very soon to be. Satan, the adversary to God and His plans, has launched his all-out effort to stop God and His Word. But he cannot. My heart goes out to the people he is using whom he has duped by his blinding tactics (2 Cor. 4:4).

From my ninth floor mirpeset (מִרְפֶּסֶת = balcony), I watched a young man standing outside his room. Probably he is or has been a soldier. From his lax stance, he snapped to attention for the duration of the siren. 

Just across the Salt Sea are the mountains of Moab where Israel crossed on their way into the Promised Land under the leadership of Joshua. No one could stop them then. And no one can stop them now. 

Soon and very soon, they are going to welcome their King Messiah.

And before that (I believe seven years before), we will hear the command of the Lord. I believe He may say, “Come up hither!” Then the voice of the angel, and the trump of God. 

I trust we are ever in remembrance of that day to come—and living like it is soon and very soon.

    It’s an interesting situation to be in, one we’ve never been in before, where our hearts ache and hurt for the people involved, yet thrill at the prospect of Jesus calling us up soon.
    My heart aches for Him too, but I long for as many salvations as we can get in the meantime.
    With much love,

God did it. And it was beyond spectacular!!!! Shalom !

    As I read your blog it tore at my heart just thinking about what the Nation of Israel and the Jewish people have gone through and still fighting. I am so very thankful for them because they gave us The Word of God and Our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Thank You for your obeying the Lord so many years ago in connecting with the Land and the People of Israel, and for all the teachings you have brought to the body of Christ. Looking forward to your blogs and learning more. Have a very blessed tour. Continuing in prayer for the people of the land and for You and Shelly.

    General Brim thank you for communicating with us . I no longer feel like a civilian. Please remember while you are there it would be expected wicked demons have become entrenched in Jesus’s land of Gaza for 10 years it seems as long as you are there you will cast them out. I hope so.

  19. Karen on May 14, 2024 at 8:09 pm

    Dear Billye,

    Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:13-14

    My heart is heavy. My birth on June 6, 46 will make me 78 this year. But born on a day of war for the USA + 2. Born into a military family; the only child of four that walks with JESUS due to the ignorance of my parents, who didn’t understand God has no Grandchildren. You, Billye Brim, have been a beacon of LIGHT & Life for me so our LORD has led me to stand with you and your ministry. My parents didn’t understand the tactics of the devil; and one of the Powers: Religion did such destruction without breaking one law of the land. Religion however, can break HIS Commandments & His heart. Today as I wait upon my LORD & SAVIOR; my KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDs for prayers I prayed 40 years ago to be fullfilled. I’m encouraged by the battle HE has aligned me with….Israel’s. The day began with prayer; and aligning with WWI is my life’s course. Now I’m at the library getting ready to study the book of Daniel. My prayers include believing His healing balm continue to manifest around, on, and through your body, Billye. HE will have HIS way; where there seems to be no way. BLESSINGS in the journey, Barbara Jo Stephenson

    After the Lord protected Israel from the attack from Iran I have begun to thank and praise God that he will deliver the hostages safe and sound. There is nothing too hard for our God . On the morning prayer call God assured us we should trust His ability. I do like Psalm 2:4 He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. God laughs at the devil because he sees that his day is coming. I am standing on 2 Chronicles 20:10-27 they will rejoice over their enemies. Shout now!

    I love that you send these blog post. Let God ARISE and His enemies be scattered!
