Four Hostages Rescued!

BREAKING NEWS 3:00 SHABBAT AFTERNOON

RESCUE OF FOUR HOSTAGES ALIVE!!! ISRAELIS REJOICE!

In a rescue operation carried out by two Israeli security forces, one young woman and three men were rescued from terrorists. They were used as human shields. All four were taken hostage at the Nova Concert.

NOVA CONCERT SITE

Just two days ago, we stood at the site where they were taken. Hundreds were murdered, kidnapped, tortured and raped in unimaginable deeds performed by undoubtedly demon-possessed terrorists.

Flags and pictures were placed for each individual victim. It is a most emotional experience to move among them. Of the 1,200 Israelis killed in the terrorist massacre, more than 360 were murdered here at the festival and more than 40 taken hostage.

 

KIBBUTZ NIR OZ

This small kibbutz (400 residents) somehow escaped the attention and help of the IDF and the police on that horrendous day, October 7, 2023. They lost, either to death or kidnapping, one-fourth of their people. Rita, a resident who guided us through, knew each one of them. As we would pass by a house, she would tell us who lived there and something personal about them.

 

KIBBUTZ BE’ERI

We went back to this hard-hit large kibbutz. We had gone there twice in December (you can read the blogs of that visit, click here). This time we were guided by Nir, who took us through his home. In a video attached, I asked him to share with you what he’d told us about his own twelve-hour stand and the kidnapping of his son.

 

After most of the group had boarded the bus, Nir shared with a few of us some very personal supernatural experiences he’d had. But when we asked him to repeat them on the bus for all to hear, he told Guy he could not. They were just too personal. One thing he did share with us was that after his only son was taken (he has three daughters as well), he was so worried. Reports were that he was murdered. Then he heard, supernaturally, “He is alive. And he will come back.” A calm came over Nir. And after being held 54 days, his son came home alive.

There is great rejoicing in Israel for the four who came home on this Shabbat!

 

 THE EAGLES

It is sooo hot here at The Salt Sea, also known as The Dead Sea. But it is Shabbat and a wonderful opportunity for this brave group to take a day of rest if they choose. We get to have a day with Israeli families enjoying this marvelous day the Lord set aside for just that—rest and enjoyment.

Thank God for air conditioning!

The heat did not stop several among us, though, from going with Guy to tour Masada, a rock top 1,000 feet above the Sea upon which Herod chose to build a magnificent palace. It was also the last holdout of Jews in the Bar Kochba revolution. Perhaps you’ve heard the account of how they committed suicide rather than submit to the Romans, whom they had watched slowly build a ramp to reach them.

I got a call from Guy from the top of Masada. He was so excited. This hearty group was blessed with a sight that made me wish (almost) that I’d gone with them. Even as we spoke, they were observing eagles flying over them, migrating north from Africa. The large birds ride the thermals (air currents). In all the years I’ve been coming, I’ve experienced it once. It is really something to see!

      I am with you, praying for you, Israel and all that concerns both countries. I remember praying in tongues the day before the captives were brought home! There was something more heightened
      about it, my prayer may have been collected with others to perform this rescue. I rejoice with them! 🙌What a terrible, awesome, extraordinary time to be privileged to live in. I wouldn’t want to live at any other time. So MUCH is being accomplished, on our behalf! Thank you for many, many things you bring and carry, but just for today, the blog! 🙏🔥🇺🇸💖🇮🇱

      American or Israeli. We are all ONE. I am a Jew who is one inwardly. I weep when they weep. I rejoice when they rejoice. I praise the Lord anyway, because he fights our battles and inhabits, indeed lives in our praise, and it Stills the avenging angels.

    • Shelia Gwillim on June 11, 2024 at 6:01 am

      Thank you so much for sharing . I have teenagers and have taught them about the Bible and they honor Israel both of them have said it is so crazy what happened in Gaza. They believe people are out of their minds to think anything bad about the lovely Jewish people. Their social media they say is nuts. I thank God for His Word and Nir telling his story. Tell him please don’t stop people need to know. Thank you for the blogs. My husband and I watched a couple of them together last night. The miracles are powerful and it’s so good to hear God moving in Israel in the IDF in them praying. It brought tears to my eyes. Such joy!! Thank you for blogging.

  6. Diane Lauria on June 10, 2024 at 11:55 am

    Billye, have been waiting for this word since the hostages were rescued. First thing each day I check Israeli news and of course, Amir. I rejoiced to know you and the tour were there in the Land and feeling the joy. I remember Israel is so small it’s like a family but, since it was Sabbath many missed it until later.
    Remember months ago, the interpretation came by Max, “I will keep them alive and rescue them”. Since then I decree it daily and will keep doing the same! Also as instructed I have prayed Psalm 91 over Israel. It’s a grievous thing to see so many young IDF soldiers lost from this life.
    We all are praying for y’all and it’s exciting to realize we are united around the world.
    Isaac is a master video maker. Great work!
    Ditto, thank God for AC . . . I live in the desert.
    Chag Shavuot Sameach,

    • Diane Lauria on June 11, 2024 at 8:47 am

      It’s just me again. These words keep whispering through my mind and heart. Then he heard, supernaturally, “He is alive. And he will come back.” A calm came over Nir. And after being held 54 days, his son came home alive. So precious! How I pray Bibi, Cyrus, our leaders would hear the Word of the Lord and feel peace and encouragement to carry on.

  21. Myrna Williams on June 10, 2024 at 2:57 pm

    Thank you Miss Billye for sharing this tour with us. I don’t have the words to describe what I feel as the stories of October 07 are shared but I do know that Jesus told us at the 0800 Moed last week; Pray for what is coming. These things I declares. Ezekiel 34:16, judgement on the wicked and Proverbs 21:3, justice for the righteous! His Word prevails!

  22. Ray McDonald on June 10, 2024 at 3:01 pm

    Thank you so much for your Blogs, Sister Billye. Very poignant story about the 4 hostage’s rescue and homecoming. Thank you for your wonderful ministry. I send you love from Queensland, Australia. Shalom.

  26. Kelly Caudill on June 10, 2024 at 5:02 pm

    Thank you, Billye, and your group for visiting places of shocking horror and deepest sorrow. What you are doing is SO important. To see that field filled with photos of those who were killed, there are no words to describe my feelings.
    Rain Levy spoke at EMIC last night and he described such atrocities. These acts of violence are not hidden away from the public nor are these acts few and random. October 7th was comprehensively planned months before and Hamas was supported, guided and armed by other political players.
    Please keep sending us this ammunition to use to rebuke those who are involved in or supporting anti-Semitism.
    Luke 17: 7-8 we stand on daily for the quick release of the hostages and strength for their loved ones.
    We pray for Israel 🇮🇱 daily and for all fighting for Israel including your ministry, CUFI, JLH, KCM/EMIC and many more.
    The war is intense but the victory goes to Israel through El Nicamot.
    Glory to God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

  27. Andrea Sandvik on June 10, 2024 at 10:11 pm

    Oh thank you Dr. Billye- It is so important for them to know we won’t forget, not one of them, and what happened. I prayed and fasted God would comfort each one who was being held captive and set them free. Israel is now united just as Netanyahu says. I listen to what Amir Tsarfati has to say on Telegram often.

  28. Sylvia Hayes on June 11, 2024 at 5:05 am

    Such a somber and emotional moment it must have been. A blessed time to be in Israel, to participate in the holy days with God’s people. All of you being there must have blessed so many of the Israelites. Oh, how my heart longs to go back. I hope to go with Miss Billye on her next tour. Continued blessings and safety to all! Shalom Shalom

  34. TC on June 12, 2024 at 5:29 pm

    I am a grandmother of 17 children over half the age of the young people at this festival. I am also a great grandmother of two girls ages six and seven
    Even is my heart is broken and grieved over this situation and this festival, I must submit, but Holy Spirit has said to me over and over, that no one is speaking about how grieved his own heart is because of the sexual and drinking and dancing activity that was so ungodly at this festival! This was in the exact region where God’s friend Abraham made covenant and, God himself, and the covenant were blasphemed and cursed that is Bible. And sadly, the curse fell upon a generation led by greed and grave sin. My tears have been more for my heavenly father , then for the celebrated abomination. Oh God of glory help us to see, and to know what you see, no and feel and your thoughts!

  35. Chrystalle Tylor on June 13, 2024 at 1:23 am

    Dear Billye what a huge range of emotions you must have to ride on a day to day basis, yet above it all, the truth Galatians 2:20 that through our crucifixion with Christ, I live yet not I anymore but Christ liveth in me…. radiates through you.
    We are so grateful for that huge gift of faith God has given you and want to reach out and hug Nir for his bravery, we will all forever be closer to him and his family for his willingness to share. xx

  36. Sharon Stern on June 15, 2024 at 5:28 pm

    I love your blogs, Sis. Billye. They make me feel like I’m part of the work you’re doing in Israel. I just retired last year, and I told my granddaughter that I want to go to Israel with you. Prayerfully I will soon. Love you.

    Shalom!
