After Israel's re-vote, on September 26, President Rivlin chose Netanyahu, to form a new unity government. Mr. Netanyahu must unite with other parties within 28 days to form a coalition government, but the negotiation for Israel's government is in a difficult situation. If the coalition is not formed by the end of the week, it is likely to hold a third general election again. Father God, let the political parties of Israel unite in God’s word; therefore, it will reveal that God is with Israel and accomplish His promise to Israel toward the Middle East and all nations. The members of Israel’s parliament fear God and cooperate to establish the right leader. Please help Israel carry out all its policies by setting up new government ministers suitable for each department, including politics, economy, military, education, and culture in Israel. Amen.

The day of Trumpet, beginning the evening of September 29, started the Jewish New Year of 5780. From the evening of October 8 to the 9th is “The day of atonements”, Yom Kippur, that all Jews including their children fast and pray for repentance for the sins of the individual, family and country. Not only will all stores be closed and all vehicles will be banned, but the airport will be shut down by banning all aircraft. Father, the high priest had entered the most holy once a year to offer sacrifices for the sins of the people and the kingdom, but Jews now who do not have a temple gather on the Wailing Wall and pray. Be merciful to the Jews who do not know Yeshua, the high priest and Messiah, who redeemed our sins as the Lamb of God. Open the eyes of the Jews to recognize Yeshua Messiah and pour the Holy Spirit to repent knowing sins of disbelief. Father God! Let them repent knowing the truth of forgiveness of sins by the blood, shed on the cross, of our high priest, Yeshua. Enlighten your light of life to come before Lord.

The Feast of Tabernacle, Sukkot, will be started from October 13, coming Sunday and last for a week. Give your grace to Jews scattered in Diaspora to remember the words of God, who said, "Go up to Jerusalem and observe the Feast," and to return to the land promised their fathers. Wash the Israeli, who return to the promised land and celebrated the festival, with pure water; give them new hearts. Open their eyes and ears and give wisdom to understand by heart; pour the new spirit so that they can realize that Yeshua is Messiah.
4. Father God!
In the book Amos 9:15, “I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them, says the Lord your God." We bless Israeli who returned to the land of Israel and celebrate the festival in ‘Jehovah Shalom’. Also, we praise God who takes pity on them and protect them. Make Jews living in other countries return to their homeland quickly and serve God right. Father God! Make Christians from nations who came to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacle repent what they have done wrong to Jews in the past, love and comfort the Jews. Father God! Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem with the mission of the perfect watchmen over the walls. Make us fully responsible for our precious mission of praying until Jehovah God establishes Jerusalem to receive praise from the world. Let us have the faith with full of the Holy Spirit.

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:18-20)

There is a surge in applications for Spanish citizenship for descendants of Jews who were deported from Spain in the late 15th century. According to Spanish law officials, 132,226 people have applied for Spanish citizenship as of September 30, when the Spanish government closed its application for Spanish citizenship for Sephardi Jews living in foreign countries. The majority of the applicants are from South America such as Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and Argentina, with more than 3,000 Israeli citizens. Spain earlier passed a law in 2015 to atone for its medieval "Jewish Exile" and grant Spanish citizenship to its descendants. In last month alone, ending their four-year citizenship application, there were 72,000, more than half of total application. Applicants had to prove their Jewish heritage through family genealogy or notation by rabbi (Jewish law scholar) and also passed tests on Spanish and historical and cultural knowledge. Spain's Ministry of Justice plans to conduct the nationality acquisition review for all applicants in order that those who do not have the documentary evidence can turn in at a later date. The majority of those who want to benefit from Spanish passports are between 25 and 35 years old professionals. The Sephardi Jews were born and raised in the Iberian Peninsula, where Spain and Portugal are located; their name is originated that the Spanish Jews called the Iberian Peninsula "separad" in Hebrew. Today, the number of Sephardians who have formed diaspora groups around the world is estimated about 3.5 million. Father God, let these 3.5 million Sephardi Jews go back to their old land. Let them realize that they cannot be safe even though they have Spanish nationality, so that they can return to the land of promise before the anti-Semitic whip becomes stronger and sharper. Praise be to God, who loves, guards, and protects Israel ever since the time he chose invariably. I thank you, God that Sephardi Jews from all over the world are settling in Your appointed time. Now, let Israel return Act be revised so that they may return more quickly.

A massive protest against the French government's push for a revision of the ‘law on bioethics was held in Paris on October 6. The "anti-family break-up" demonstration was held in protest after the French government, which legalized the same-sex marriage in 2013, drafted a bill to revise the ‘Bioethics Act’ that would allow single and gay couples to receive in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and include them in public health insurance benefits. The revised ‘Bioethics Act’ was passed by the House of Representatives last month; if approved by the Senate, it will become an active law. Protesters said it would break up traditional family structures and deprive families of their father's presence. Also, they insisted on the withdrawal of the bill saying "family with mothers and fathers is a kind of ecosystem that needs protection." However, 65 percent of French public opinion is in favor of the bill. Father God, who blessed the flourishing of human beings through families, I am grateful for holding a rally against the revision of France's Bioethics Act in this era of homosexuality, which runs counter to the principle of creation, which destroys the order of creation. Let French people realize that human rights are only claimed in God's law so that the law of pursuing them will be thwarted. Human society can no longer reproduce or sustain itself if people are guilty of violating the order that Creator God established for human beings. Lord, please let us know that the abominable homophobic laws of all parts of the world especially France, are a cunning trick of the Satan to destroy the family. Let churches recognize that the true human rights for homosexuals are an escape from homosexuality; let them educate and deal with homosexuality. Let them not be in silence and not get caught up in the current of the times.

Praying for the United States
All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. (Psalm 86:9-11)

Pope Francis met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and talked about religious freedom on October 3. Pope and Secretary of State Pompeo are said to have shared the view that they should be dedicated to promoting religious freedom around the world including the protection of the Christian community in the Middle East. At the Vatican conference on religious freedom in the previous day, Pompeo defined China as a country that infringes on religious freedom and criticized the Chinese government's policy of discriminating against minority Uighurs, who are Muslim. Father God, the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church and the U.S. Secretary of State show their move to rationalize religious freedom under the name of peace. I pray that God, who has seen and known everything, will be behind it and will fulfill Your will. Religious freedom and pluralism are spreading like yeast in the whole churches in world. Only Jesus, who was crucified and became the fragrant sacrifice, is the way to salvation, the truth and the life. In this last period of trying to deceive the world with clever words to create peace and freedom without the cross, let the Church in the world proclaim boldly with confidence that there has never given us a name worth saving other than Jesus. Pour the Holy Spirit and the fullness of grace into the churches of the Middle East, especially in the midst of persecution, so that they can finish the race of faith to the end as a winner. Let America realize that there is genuine peace and freedom only through the word of God, Gospel and dwell in the truth.

Ilron Musk, the CEO of U.S. private space developer Space X says its Mars manned mission, the Starship, has been deployed at a launch facility in Texas. The Mars manned mission will be launched as early as next month, which is said to be designed to go anywhere in the solar system as well as on Mars and the moon. "The ultimate goal of SpaceX is to explore Mars and make it the second dwelling planet for mankind. Meanwhile, another U.S. space company, ‘Made In Space’, says it will produce a high-tech optical fiber called ‘ZBLAN’ from next year on the International Space Station. The high-performance ZBLAN fiber optics have been difficult to produce because of the problem of impurities on Earth due to the difference in density, but the International Space Station is expected to be free from defects due to little gravity. ‘Made In Space’ is a company that studies manufacturing technology needed in space and supplied 3D printers to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2015. Also, Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and private space company ‘Blue Origin’, said the Earth should bring space into the industrial economy because earth has limited energy resources and is only available solar energy during the day, while it is available in space for 24 hours. Thus, he's planning to build Amazon's storage in space in the future. So, American space companies are developing technologies that produce special materials on the space station and make the necessary parts directly from space. The development of the space industry is being driven by private space companies hoping to build large-scale factories in space to save the Earth as a clean region. Father God, space in the universe is turning into a factory to save the Earth. The development of science is a great help to human life, but please let people remember that man's reckless challenge to create beyond human ability can be the ‘Tower of Babel’ to confront and challenge God. I confess that the earth and everything in it belong to the Lord. For this generation who seeks to conquer the universe with human power to protect the earth, do not let them commit the sin of man to sit in the seat of the Lord. Let people in the modern society, rich but spiritually poor, know that Jesus is the one who gives peace and joy that the world cannot give. Let them be people who loves Jesus who will come again and never forget the Lord of the Judge.

On October 3, National Foundation Day, from Gwanghwamun to Shoongryemun in Seoul, a large crowd of people gathered for mass rally to condemn the Moon Jae-in government. It was conducted by six groups: the broad conservative protest group and Christian simultaneously. Two Christian groups led blocks of ally: ‘10.3 Step down Moon Jae-in Nationwide Battle Center’ by Jeon Kwang Hoon, the chairman of Christian Council of Korea and minister, and the "Korean Church Praying Day". People gathered from all over the country to defend the "liberal democracy" of the Republic of Korea's Constitution, and many were Christians. After the rally, some participants spent the night in front of Blue house staying on the street, repented for their country and asked for God's help. They decided to hold another rally at the Gwanghwamoon on October 9. Meanwhile, on October 4, Pastor Jeon Kwang-hoon, the chairman of Christian Council of Korea, leading ‘the broad Korean nation’s fight center’ was sued for inciting and violating the anti-protest law. Prior to this, on September 28 and October 5, there were candlelight vigils for the reform of the prosecution in front of the Central District Prosecutors' Office in Seocho-dong, chanting slogans supporting Justice Minister Cho Kuk and calling for reform of the prosecution. Father, thank you for making Christians seek repentance and prayer facing a holistic crisis that cannot be cured in any human way. May the LORD rule this situation so that there will be no mishaps in the assembly. God of the promise to the Republic of Korea will rule this land with good and benevolence. Please take pity on the Republic of Korea, facing total crisis. Enlighten the light of hope to the land of Korea in the suffering of the harmful effect due to the fall of politicians’ leadership, the ideological debate, cynicism, demagoguery, individualism, generational conflicts, and economic stagnation. All the confusion and chaos in our society today are the seeds we sow and the result of Godless in national management and our lives; let all the people repent. Only God is the one who save and unite us. Restore this country and this land like new with Your compassion and mercy.

The Korean tourism industry is working hard to attract Muslim tourists as part of its "multicultural policy." According to the Korea Tourism Organization, the number of Muslim tourists to Korea stood at 870,000 in 2017 and 970,000 last year, but the number is expected to surpass 1 million this year. In the meantime, ahead of the 2019 ‘Korea-Asian Special Summit meeting’ on November 25, Busan University and Busan Tourism Organization will hold a launching ceremony on November 4 to help develop tour-products to attract the growing number of Muslim tourists. Also they will design tour packages customized to Muslim. According to the National Statistical Office (NSO), the total number of Muslim is 262,453 in 2018; the Muslim population was consisted of legal Muslim 187,453, about 10,000 in marriage or naturalization, about 71,000 in Korean Muslims, and 4,000 in Muslims. If the illegal residents are added to this number, it is estimated at about 300,000 in Korea; the number of mosques or musala (worship place) where they lead religious lives were counted up to 200. Multicultural policies are that all cultures respect and protect each other peacefully in the 21st century when many cultures must exist together. Even though many European countries that changed laws and systems to do their best for the welfare of Muslims declared the failure of multicultural policies due to Islamic terrorism and other violent crimes, Korea still has a strong multicultural policy, which has led to activities for Muslimization. Father God, give Your Grace to the 300,000 Muslims so that they know that only God and Jesus Christ, the one He sent, is the only way to receive eternal life and come to You. Let the Church serve them with the love of Jesus Christ so that they can change migrant workers, including Muslims, with gospel. Make Korean Churches wake up to face reality and deal with it so that they can stop Islam's missionary strategy in Korea where Islam is expanding.
