Daniel 7:13-14, NIV
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Pray for the believers in Iran to remember that no matter what happens now, they are on the winning side. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give them joy and hope in the midst of the trials they now face.

Hulaula (Jewish) People in Iran and Israel

Curiosity got the better of an Israeli woman who was chatting with an elderly Jewish man at a bus stop in Old Jerusalem, and she asked an impolite question. “You have an unusual accent. Where are you from? I have never heard Hebrew spoken like this.”
The bus was not due to arrive for 20 minutes, so the old man had time to tell her how he left Iran to go to Israel. “My language is Hulaulá, and my people were forced out of Iranian Kurdistan in 1954. Like other Hulaula Jews I was active in the Zionist Movement. Now there are 200,000 of us here in Israel. We are good farmers, and we have started 30 farming villages in this country.”
“And that’s not all. There are still about 300 Hulaula Jews living in Iranian Kurdistan, and most of them are farmers, too. Several of my friends are still in Iran. And their Kurdish neighbors like them more than they like the Iranians! But now that most of us live in Israel, we have turned our backs on Orthodox beliefs; we no longer follow God’s Torah and His laws.” The bus came, and the conversation was ended.

Pray that Christ’s followers in Iranian Kurdistan and Israel will be able to reach the hearts of the Hulaula Jewish people so that they will know the glory of God, His Word, and the saving grace of Jesus.
