Monday July 28, 2014 “Snakes in the Grass”

Nehemiah 13:4,5 & 7  “ Now before this, Eliashib the priest, having authority over the storerooms of the house of our God, was allied with Tobiah. And he had prepared for him a large room, where previously they had stored the grain offerings, the frankincense, the articles, the tithes of grain, the new wine and oil, which were commanded to be given to the Levites and singers and gatekeepers, and the offerings for the priests…. and I came to Jerusalem and discovered the evil that Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in preparing a room for him in the courts of the house of God.”
     Eliashib could represent traitors in the church and the government of a nation for in ancient Israel it was intertwined.  Tobiah was a “snake in the grass” to Israel yet he was given a place from which he could wreak havoc in Israel.
   Please join in prayer today that God raise up people like Nehemiah that will be able to recognize infiltration by the enemy concerning the church and our nation and that people who discover such activity will have courage to expose these evil workers in the land.  Snakes must not be allowed  – they will strike and create crisis and pandemonium.
 Please pray for families of loved ones lost on the Malaysian airliner and that the situation be handled wisely by the world community, especially by our country.  Pray that truth be revealed concerning who was responsible.  Also for Air Algerie flight 5017 which is missing.
Also pray for the crisis in Israel concerning Gaza.  Pray for the protection of innocent lives and that the world community see the situation through the eyes of truth.  Finally, pray that the United States continue to support our strongest ally in that area of the world, Israel, for in doing so we will be blessed.  Gen 12:3
