Kibbutz Be’eri, Second Visit

Julie Sironi came to our hotel to join us for breakfast. Such a good time sharing with this lady, now so well known in Israel for her own heart for Israel and for her coordinating the work of Kenneth Copeland Ministries here. It’s so pleasurable to communicate with a kindred spirit.


2nd Visit to Be’eri

Guy, our friend and guide, picked up our little entourage for a second visit to the site of the earliest October 7 terrorist attack. David Cerjan, of FaithWalk International, and Dylon Sironi, Julie’s son, joined Terry, Shelli and me for our trip to Be’eri.

I had no idea what a feat this was until I walked in Jerusalem later and people asked, “How did you get into Be’eri?” I don’t know how Guy pulled it off—first with a tour of 63, and then for our small group the second time.

I just knew I had to go back. For one reason, when we went the first time, we were divided into two groups, with two guides. Shelli told me about all she heard and saw, and I knew I needed to go through with her guide, whose name is Or Yelin. 

Kibbutz Be’eri had actually been established in 1945 with Or’s grandparents a foundational part of its beginning. Or’s father was a leader of the border kibbutzim and a member of the parliament of Israel. 

The people of this beautiful, peaceful kibbutz were those who believed they could live at peace with their close Palestinian neighbors. The ones who took the sick, especially children, of Palestine into Israel for treatment at Israeli hospitals. 



We began near the fence where the perpetrators of the massacre first broke through.

Three heroes were leaving as we entered. Three members of ZAKA. Google their website to discover what these remarkable volunteers do. I copied this short paragraph from there:

True virtue (Chesed Shel Emes)—this is the emotional and highly distressing work for which ZAKA is best known. This is a unique unit with a unique mission—to honor the dead and ensure a full Jewish burial for those who meet a sudden death.

What their eyes have seen, no person should have to view. They have cleaned, with honor, the physical evidence, bodies and blood of the people so unspeakably terrorized and murdered. They have worked to identify what were sometimes just body parts.


Perilous “Safe” Zone

Or took us into homes and told us their stories.

All were heartbreaking. I will share only one here. The family within included the father and mother and several children, including the only daughter who survived.

Theirs was one of the first houses broken into on that High Holy Day Shabbat.
The small saferoom the family ran into became a shooting gallery for automatic weapons fired through the door and the one window into the horrified family.

We listened to the recorded voice messages that the 13-year-old daughter whispered into her cell phone, pleading for the recipients to call for help. She had no way of knowing they were in the same dire circumstances. We listened to several of her messages reporting on what was happening. How she was trying to keep her father alive after he’d been shot in the stomach. How her mother was dying, as well as her siblings. Several of her messages were made after she’d been shot in the legs six times. Repeatedly, rounds of ammunition were emptied into the small room. She and her father were the only survivors.

House after house. Home after home. Person after person. Terror. Torture. Rape. Murder. Kidnapping.

Or told us that the videos the terrorists themselves made revealed how, although they shouted in Arabic, they would switch to Hebrew when it suited them. After terrorizing victims, they would sometimes hold a gun to their heads and shoot them. Before they did, they said in Hebrew, “We do this for fun!”.

Some of the atrocities Or described I just cannot put into this blog.

It is safe to say, the perpetrators were possessed by devils. Like Judas and Hitler, Satan had entered into them. 

Or was in a safe room with his fiancée. She said to him, “Kill me.” She didn’t want to fall into the hands of the demon-possessed men.

Kibbutz Be’eri consists of 380 households.
96 were killed.
A number are missing.
30 were kidnapped. 18 have returned.


Walking Through Be’eri

We slowly walked the streets of this once evidently beautiful kibbutz, lined by well-kept homes and yards. Flowers. Fruit trees. Plants. Life blossomed here.

I am told there was a TV program in Israel some time ago entitled “Billie B’Derek” or “Billie on the Way.” In it, the woman named Billie produced her programs from “places along the way.” From somewhere deep within me, I remembered hearing about that program. And I thought of the “way” in which I was walking. The “way” I was allowed to witness.

First, we met a man and a woman whose family members were still being held hostage. They, like Romi’s father, whom we’d met in Tel Aviv, wore photographs of their loved ones as they walked the streets they’d known as home.


Military Men

Three men in uniform met us and entered into a long conversation. The one who spoke so genially with us, I think Guy said was a General. He took out his phone and showed us an act of his command in Gaza that had just occurred. From the shot, we first saw a long row of buildings in a Hamas headquarters city. Then we heard a countdown. Saw a hand pull a handle. Then building after building over a large area came down all at once.




It Has To End!

This country, were it not for The Most High, would be sitting like one of those unsafe safe rooms. Israel must be without restraint. Without pressure from the United States. Hamas must be cleared out of Gaza. And Hezbollah from Southern Lebanon.

Pray for the Promised Land and His Chosen People.
Pray for the leaders of Israel.
Pray for the soldiers.
Pray for the people of Israel.
Pray for the hostages.
Pray for their families.
Pray for the economy.

Pray in the Spirit and let the Lord give you the utterances He wants spoken into the earth.

    THANK YOU Billye for these first hand reports from our beloved Israel! It makes one nauseous to see / hear of man’s inhumanity to man. Take special care of yourself dear Woman of God. Abba will have His justice!
    God has had me on assignment since last March (2023) praying against the spirit of DECEPTION across our Nation (& beyond)! Knowing Him & what a God of Order He is, I am certain MANY are doing the same! May God be GLORIFIED!

  10. Joy Theda Bjork on December 20, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    I cried as I read of the 13-year old watching her mom and siblings die. How horrible esp for someone that age! and the ZAKA group! God bless them for their sacrificial work. That is what needs to be reported on the news!!!!!! I listened to Blinken’s Year end speech. I was so proud of him when he stated that no one is condemning the Hamas for the deaths of the palestinians by hiding in their homes and hospitals! What a twisted world we live in! We comman the TRUTH be released and the twisted and perverted lies be shut down in the powerful and Blessed Name of Yeshua ha Machiach! Amen!!!!!! ENOUGH!!!!!

      Thank you, Billye, for this update. CBN News recently had an article of Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann, visiting that Kibbutz shortly after Oct. 7. She had lived there several years ago, and knew some of the people killed. She showed pictures of what a beautiful place it use to be.
      Appreciate the list of things to pray for.
      Will continue to pray for all of you as you spend time in Israel.

  20. Lorraine Rua on December 20, 2023 at 2:24 pm

    These accounts have moved me beyond tears to a zeal and passion to have these truths preached boldly to a Body of Christ who either dont know the Word of God and or His heart for Israel and His land or they have been so indoctrinated by the antisemetic propoganda that has been beclouding their minds and hearts.
    Thankyou Billye for being that true Witness for God

  21. Agnes Hendry on December 20, 2023 at 3:25 pm

    Thank you sister Billye for the updates..praying for the leaders and the people..the promises of Psalm 91..

  22. Donna Medina on December 20, 2023 at 3:37 pm

    Praying for you. The Negev was my project since 2000. My last recount was helping to fund water and playgrounds. Thank you for being there since I can’t. I lost a whole community of “family”. I have a prayer team and we are praying with you.

  23. Donna L White on December 20, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    Thank you so much for keeping us updated. It is just heartbreaking to hear of the terror and deaths that consumed the people. Our prayers to God for healing and strength to surround you and the community there so that the Name of the Lord will be glorified by your visit. May the angel armies of the Most High God surround you and the tour as you minister to those whose lives have been so violated. Praying for a great outpouring of the Spirit of God to bring healing to the hearts and minds of the Israeli people.

  24. Barbara Jo Stephenson on December 20, 2023 at 4:20 pm

    Thank you Billye….thank you for Knowing the Voice of our LORD, for your peace, for bringing us the truth in pictures and word. Thank you for the specific focus for prayer; I will follow your direction. I’m standing in agreement you will have traveling mercies, favor where ever the plane lands, with whom ever you encounter, and for whatever reason. Angels will interveen when ever needed and the joy of the LORD will remain your strength….
    I’m praying our LORD opens the door for me to get my doctorate at 3BI. I’m searching for my credentials as I write…..
    Lord Thank you for HOLDING ISRAEL in YOUR arms; and working for good what the devil meant for evil….in JESUS Name I pray!

  25. Brenda Blaze on December 20, 2023 at 4:35 pm

    Oh Billye I can’t even imagine what it was like to walk down those streets we’ve only seen from a far away distance on the news media! God ordained you to be a witness and gifted and anointed you with such beautiful heartfelt crystal clear utterance and writing! It moves all of us who have walked with you through your Blogs on our knees! We can feel the Love of God pouring out of you for His people ISREAL! May they be Comforted with the Comfort only He can give! May He protect and provide and Shepherd the apple of His eye! Believing that every PLAN AND PROMISE HE HAS FOR ISREAL BE FULFILLED! May He destroy their enemies as He has said in His Word! He keeps COVENANT AND CHESED with His BELOVED! Praying for the Shalom Peace and Wholeness of Jerusalem 🙏💙🇮🇱🧎🏻‍♀️Love YOU BILLYE AND SHELLI❤️ Brenda

  26. Penny McLaughlin on December 20, 2023 at 5:22 pm

    Amen yes it has to end! With the Lord’s help, the host of His warrior angels and Archangel Michael contending over Israel, we pray that good will prevail swiftly. My oh my what a mighty battle at a great price. Thank you sister Billye for sharing what you can with wisdom to fill us in knowing there is soooo much more. Thank you too for the very specific prayer points for Israel. I honour you, Shelli, Guy and your entourage for pressing in and boldly treading where others wouldn’t dare in order to listen, care and love on these deeply wounded people. May the angels pour their healing balm into all their emotional; physical and spiritual  wounds and fill them with His supernatural love and peace to restore this nation exponentially. I pray that you and the ZAKA members will all be protected and continually filled with supernatural joy amidst the sadness. Psalm 30:11-12 AMPC: “You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, To the end that my tongue and my heart and everything glorious within me may sing praise to You and not be silent.”

  27. Kelly Caudill on December 20, 2023 at 5:51 pm

    The Lord reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light. Job 12: 22

    Please keep telling. We were not alive to reveal what the Nazis were doing to the Jewish people during World War II.
    We are alive now to tell the world what Hamas and their allies have done to the Jewish people and what they wish to continue to do to the Jewish people.

    Please keep sharing what you have seen and heard. Please keep sharing. Please keep sharing.

    Let the Lord’s Truth with Great Exposure shine throughout Israel, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Iran. Let this utter darkness of evil be brought forth and broadcast everywhere and in every nation. Let the UN explode with the undeniable Truth of the Lord.

    The Lord sent you to Israel for such a time as this.
    He is sharing the TRUTH concerning the Hamas’ (and allies) evil actions. Judgement has begun.

    His Judgments also includes how people treat Israel and the Jewish people now. Even the words people speak are being analyzed as El Nicamot fills His Hand with lightnings and commands them to strike their mark. (Job 36: 32-33)

    Please keep sharing what you have seen and heard.

  29. Peter Pritchard on December 20, 2023 at 6:37 pm

    Billye, witnessing the demonic attack areas would be so awful. Satan is trying every dirty trick in the book and stealing souls in Muslim nations by using radical extremists . Bless you as you witness. Yeshua please flood Israel with your healing touch. Peter

  30. Nia on December 20, 2023 at 8:21 pm

    Dear Ms Billye, I am so very glad you went back Be’eri. I know the prayer you prayed on that ground this second time around, will start start something so very powerful in that land. From my heart, Thank you for sharing!

  31. Gloria Corn on December 20, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    I have no words! All I can do is pray.

  32. margie on December 20, 2023 at 8:52 pm

    Bless you. I love Israelis, Jews and I’m allowing Holy Spirit during my designated wwp time to pray through me for He knows all. Pray Terry and Max get safely home as well as praying for you and Shelli’ s safety there as you minister to the brokenhearted. And then travel home. I am so glad for your blogs, it brings more compassion for our brothers and sisters there. I love you all. I have seen no negative posts on fb from my friends regarding Israel. I pray they know not to believe the mainstream news here. Pray Congress will have a day of prayer for Israel. And a change of heart toward the people they are supposed to be representing! Merry Christmas to you both , may it be extra special!

  33. Susan Ilbert on December 20, 2023 at 8:56 pm

    Thank you for giving us first hand accounts that we can trust, as you always do. Over and over again I am reminded of the cry of Kim Clement when he was doing his “boots on the ground” prayer watch on Israel’s border!
    “Israel is forever!” God bless and keep you till you return home safe and sound! In the name of Jesus, protected by the blood of Christ.

  42. Silvia Berberian on December 21, 2023 at 9:18 pm

    Sooo heartbreaking and sad to hear of the pure evil done to beautiful people. Thank you for your honest reporting and for keeping us in the prayer loop. I’m certainly in prayer with you for all your points and we will continue (Christmas or not) to pray UNTIL it is over. We are as much part of their army as they are, just on the other side of the world, but one in spirit.
    Safe travels and may you have a Blessed, comforted (It’s not easy hearing or reading about these atrocities) and rested Christmas time there.
    May the peace of God, the comfort of the Holy Spirit and the Grace of our Lord be with you all the way and all the days you are there.
