Beloved Watchmen on the walls of the nations,
We bring you greetings in the excellent name of our precious savior and soon coming King –the King of Righteousness, our Lord Yeshua Messiah.
We are about to enter the 11th lunar cycle of 2013, which also is a time of a major solar eclipse. There is a solar eclipse on the day of the new moon (November 3rd). We need to continue to watch and pray in the remaining months of 2013. The Lord is looking to us to watch with Him over the nations and over His purposes. As we do so, He will take care of us and crown the year with His goodness for all who are faithful to watch and pray (Ps 65:11).
This new month is the Jewish month of Kislev—the month of Benjamin. As you can recall, at the time of Benjamin’s birth, his mother died. As she was dying, she named him ‘son of my sorrow, (Genesis 35: 16-19)’ but his father Jacob renamed him ‘son of my right hand,’ that is, ‘a son that is very dear to me, set on my right hand for a blessing, the support of my age, like the staff in my right hand.’ By changing Benjamin’s name, Jacob stood in the gap and brought him out of the pit of sorrow into the place of favor and joy. As we prayed for deliverance from the toils of our fathers’ houses in the last month of Manasseh, let us pray for deliverance from the sorrows inherited through our mothers this month. Let us pray asking our heavenly father to arise over us and remove the covering of doom and sorrow from our lives in Yeshua’s name, amen. Also, let us pray like Nehemiah in this month of Kislev (Nehemiah 1) for favor to receive resources that we need to repair the broken walls in our lives, families, communities, nations, the Church, etc. Let us ask the Lord to raise Benjamites like Apostle Paul in our generation, apostles who are called and sent forth by the revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal 1:11-16).

The solar eclipse:
As mentioned above, the 11th new moon will occur on November 3 at 12:50 UT. Shortly before the time of the 11th new moon, a total solar eclipse will begin at 10: 04 UT. The eclipse will be visible in eastern North America, northern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The eclipse begins over the northern Atlantic Ocean (east of Florida) and quickly transitions to a total solar eclipse. After crossing the Atlantic, the eclipse enters Africa at Gabon and crosses R. of Congo, DR Congo, and Uganda. Complete darkness caused by the eclipse will occur in Guru, Uganda. From Uganda, the path of the eclipse moves to Kenya and crosses Lake Turkana. It then enters Ethiopia and exits land surface through Somalia in the Horn of Africa into the Indian Ocean. Partial eclipses will be visible from the Atlantic Ocean south of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, and throughout Africa and some part of Europe (Spain) into the Middle East. Over a period of 3 and half hours, the path of the eclipse travels as follows:
10:04 UT: The partial phases of the eclipse begin in the Atlantic close to Florida and Bermuda.
11:05 UT: Total phases of the eclipse begin.
12:46 UT: The point of greatest eclipse occurs in the Atlantic, approximately 330 kilometers southwest of Liberia. At this instant, the axis of the Moon's shadow passes closest to Earth's center. The maximum duration of totality is 1 minute 39 seconds. 14:27 UT: The total phases of the eclipse end.
15:28 UT: Partial phases end.
Implications of this Eclipse Path
Please recall that Eclipses usually are harbingers of judgment on the territories along its path of travel. This particular eclipse path crosses major ancient trading paths: the Atlantic slave trade (the Americas and West and Central Africa), the trans-Saharan trade, and the Roman-India spice and slave trade routes (connection of North and East Africa, India and Europe through the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea). There are injustices on the eclipse path: slavery, greed, religious and political wars, persecutions, bloodshed, etc. It is a path of traffic for the spirit of Babylon-- Rev 18:11-13—the judgment of the Lord upon mystery Babylon.
11 “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore— 12 cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; 13 cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.”
What we should do
The Wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23a). Let us repent for any role the church played in the atrocities committed in these trading activities. Let us cry to God for mercy, let us pray that He will establish Micah 7:19 in our lives and situation:
"He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depth of the sea."
Remember the word of God says if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness - 1 John 1:9. Ps. 6; 32; 38; 51; 102; 130; 143, etc.
PRAYER POINTS FOR THE ECLIPSE EVENT AND THE NEW MOON
a. Praise and worship the Lord God Almighty (Ps. 136, 148, 8, etc). Thank God for His mercies.
b. Declare the Lordship of Yeshua over all things (Col 1:15-16, Ps 24:1, etc.): yourself, family, community, job/business, Israel, Australia, Africa, America, Asia, Europe, the Pacific, the Church, thrones, altars, principalities, powers, witchcraft, occultism, water spirits, satanic princes and watchmen, the moon god worshipped by the children of the bondwoman, sun, moon, stars, the solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, etc.
c. Lamentation and Repentance:
PERSONAL SINS (Ps 15, 24:3-4): lies, rebellion, hatred, anger, unforgiveness, jealousy, pride, anxiety, fear, prayerlessness, etc.
SINS OF THE SOCIETY: (2 Chr. 7:14, Dan 9:3-19): Idolatry, the acceptance of the false worship religion of the children of the bondwoman, witchcraft, oppression, injustice, war, destruction of lives and properties, shedding of innocent blood through war and abortion, pride, greed, lawlessness, corruption, etc.
SINS OF THE CHURCH (Matt 21:12-13, Is 56:9-12): sleeping and slumbering, ignorance, injustice, hypocrisy, pride, disunity, sexual immorality, love of money, witchcraft, idolatry, etc. Ask the Lord to forgive us.
d. Ask the Lord for mercy and bring atonement by the blood of Yeshua (Ps 51, Heb 9:12-14, 1 John 1:7)
e. Speak to the heavens with the voice of the blood of Yeshua (Heb. 12:24) and deprogram every evil (darkness, shadows, instability, spiritual slavery, mind control, backwardness, delay, wars, famine, poverty, diseases, lukewarmness, etc.) that the army of satan has programmed into the heavens during the eclipses that have passed over your life, family, nation etc.
Use the blood of Yeshua to blot out this evil handwriting Col 2:14. Ask the Lord to disarm the works of the army of satan over your life, nation, the Church, etc. Col 2:15
Sprinkle the blood of Yeshua on the PATH of the solar eclipse: northern Atlantic Ocean (east of Florida) Gabon, R. of Congo, DR Congo, Uganda, Guru, Uganda, Kenya, Lake Turkana, Ethiopia, Somalia, the Horn of Africa, Indian Ocean.
Ask the Lord Yeshua, who is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE to reign over this eclipse PATH. Ask the Lord to turn this path into a Highway of Holiness (Is 35:8-10)
f. Fasten the blood of Yeshua into the eclipse and the ring of light of the eclipse created through the alignment of the sun and the moon. Pray from Is 60 that you. Your family, nation, etc. will 'arise and shine out of darkness."
Let us blow the trumpet in the new Moon (Ps. 81:1-3) and ask the Lord to deliver us as He did deliver Joseph (Ps 81:5-7a).
g. Pray that the sun and this new moon will bear witness against the army of satan who stand opposed to the counsel of the risen Christ in matters pertaining to the Church, you, your family, business, community, etc. to judge Global occultism and Islamic fundamentalism through this eclipse event and to bless his Church.
"...proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;" (Isaiah 61:2). Invalidate the dominion the wicked seek over the solar eclipse in the name of Yeshua.
h. Ishmaelite/witchcraft: Use the blood of Yeshua to cancel the satanic agreement between witchcraft/Ishmaelite spirit and the crescent moon (Is 28:14-18). Use the voice of the blood of Yeshua to silence the enchantments, invocation, volume of words spoken 5 times a day into the heavens etc. by the army of satan during this eclipse (Heb 12:24).
Ask the Lord to visit all satanic altars in the heavens (the square and the compass of occultists, the pentagrams of witches, rolling stones, etc) with fury, anger and fire. Let the Lord uproot and destroy them (Is 64:1-4, Ps 144:5-6, etc)
Pray against shadow sorcery: the shadow of the moon will be swept over the earth during the solar eclipse. Witches and occultists will bring out their "book of shadows" to program into this event. Release the fire of God on these evil books. Pray against all manners of shadows and darkness. Psalm 91 says "We shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty God" and our inheritance will not be buried in shadows of darkness.

With the key of David, shut the heavens against all satanic watchmen (Rev 3:7). Receive the following promises: Deut 33:13-17, Ps. 121, Deut 28:1-14, etc
j. Pray for Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; pray that the two sticks of Judah and Ephraim will become one (Ps. 122, Ez. 37).
k. Proclaim the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever, Amen. (Rev. 4, 5, 11:15)
l. Sound the Shofar!
