The Startling Scriptural Parallel in the Paris Terror Attacks

by | Dec 1, 2015 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Is it a coincidence that Paris, known as the City of Light, was attacked at the same time of year 2,000 years ago when Messiah said in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life?”

Yeshua made that statement a few weeks before Hanukkah (also called Festival of Lights and Feast of Dedication). This year Hanukkah begins the night of December 6.

Yeshua also made powerful statements on the day of Hanukkah written in John 10:22-30. He said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one” (John 10:27-30).

I have seen patterns of blessings and curses throughout history at specific times of the year that fall on God’s appointed days (the feasts). Throughout history there has been a showdown between the One true God (light) and false gods (darkness). John 10:29 says, “My Father is greater than all.”

The devil tries to bring darkness into this world, into this country, and into your life. But our God is stronger and His light brings His glory into every circumstance when we trust Him.

The enemy, who is the god of darkness, thought he won when Yeshua was crucified. Mark 15:33 says, “Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour (mid afternoon).” But Yeshua rose from the grave and His resurrection power brings His light into dark situations.

As we pray for Paris (Paris needs the light of Messiah), the United States, Israel and the world, believe God’s light to shine in darkness as you worship the One true Living God. Know that His light is shining through you to bring justice, healing, provision, breakthrough, and shalom (in the Hebrew means lacking nothing, peace). Worship is a key to allow His light to shine through you to a dying world (Matthew 5:16).

Psalm 89:15 says, “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! The Hebrew for joyful sound means a shout of triumph and a shout of applause]. They [worshippers] walk, O Lord, in the LIGHT of Your countenance.”

Speaking His promises hold another key to breakthrough. Genesis 1:2 says, “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And, in Genesis 1:3, “God said, ‘Let there be light and there was light.'”

In the last days Isaiah 60:2 says, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you.”

His glory will be seen upon you. His light is way more powerful than any darkness. Keep your eyes on Him and watch Him do great miracles in your life and the world around you!
