Support God's holy work of Aliyah through Planned giving or legacy giving



By John Prosser, President, OEUSA

My heart’s desire is to make you into a great nation, to bless you, to make your name great so that you may be a blessing. My desire is to bless those who bless you, but whoever curses you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.
Genesis 12:2-3 TLV

At this critical juncture in the history of Israel’s relationship with their God, it is imperative that we fortify our resolve in alignment with His eternal blueprint for the restoration and redemption of Israel and the nations.

Operation Exodus USA (OEUSA), a Christian non-profit ministry, stands at the forefront with a mandate from God to assist our Jewish brothers and sisters in their journey of making Aliyah. We extend a heartfelt invitation for you to seek the LORD to incorporate supporting God’s holy work of Aliyah into your planned/legacy giving.

Such deliberate contributions offer a profound opportunity to make substantial gifts that are not only shielded from estate tax, but also sidestep capital gains taxes. These contributions can be structured as ongoing donations throughout your lifetime or meticulously planned as future bequests, perhaps integrated into

your estate planning. We recommend that you consult your financial advisors for more detailed information.

Your consideration of OEUSA in your estate planning legacy makes a direct and significant impact on the monumental move of Aliyah from our nation. Your sacrificial offerings, in both prayer and tangible support for Israel and her people, are investments that yield eternal rewards.

Let each one give as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion—for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that by always having enough of everything, you may overflow in every good work. As it is written, “He scattered widely, He gave to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.”
2 Corinthians 9:7-9 TLV

Thank you for your prayers, and consideration. Please feel free to call with any questions you may have by contacting the OEUSA National Business Office at 716.681.6300. You may ask for Peggy Perry, Finance Director.

Gifts and Sacrifices

Gifts and Sacrifices in Concert with HIS Eternal Plan NL blog



It was by faith that Abel obeyed God and brought an offering that pleased God more than Cain’s offering did. God accepted Abel and proved it by accepting his gift; and though Abel is long dead, we can still learn lessons from him about trusting God. Hebrews 11:4 TLB

     Operation Exodus USA (OEUSA), at its core, is an active and effectual intercessory ministry. Its Kingdom assignment is anchored in the hope of God’s eternal purpose found in His promise to return and restore Israel and the Jewish people. Through fervent intercession, we are called to exercise today’s faith to both seal the work accomplished thus far and to prepare the way for the work which remains, while actively participating in the daily, practical facilitation of Aliyah. We rejoice in its fruit as it comes – sometimes seen in large waves, but also in His faithful and relentless pursuit of the one – those making Aliyah.
     At OEUSA, we firstly desire to offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord for cultivating in us His love for His Jewish brethren and for calling us to practically demonstrate this love in accordance with His eternal plan of redemption and restoration. There is no greater privilege than to be entrusted to participate in the advancement of His purposes. Secondly, we have enormous gratitude to those whose hearts have borne witness to this call and have given of their lives and resources in support of this work.
     Christians are called to a priestly ministry to offer spiritual 

gifts and sacrifices to God through our High Priest, as each purposes in his/her own heart. We offer our talents, our worship, our intercessions, our time, and our finances. Clearly, this does not refer to the carnal heart, which is defined by self-will, emotions, or intellect. It describes the spirit of man, which when cultivated through a living relationship with the Godhead, yields to His will, His desires, His wisdom and understanding. By implication, that which is offered to God through the yielded spiritual heart is the offering, which is accepted and effectual.

     As we incline our hearts to hear the Lord’s heart, we can have strong confidence that by rightly mixing the faith that comes with this word of hearing, our offerings of intercession, love, labor, and finances will be found acceptable to our God and advance His eternal work. Let us faithfully pursue His heart that, through doing so, we may purpose in our own hearts to offer gifts and sacrifices that bear good fruit of eternal consequence.

Alarming Anti-Semitism



By John Prosser, President OEUSA

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 NIV

The war against Israel continues, driven by the relentless pursuit of the anti-Christ spirit to murder Jewish people and annihilate the nation. This evil threat echoes with unmistakable clarity in the present. The resounding voices of anti-Semitism in the US are displaying a shocking lack of restraint, openly expressing vicious hatred and murderous intent. May the horrific events of October 7, 2023, serve as a stark reminder to Jewish people that only their God can uphold them with His righteous right hand; may the phrase “Never Again” reinforce their resolve to seek their God and cry to Him for His help.

This alarming trend is a harbinger for the greater Aliyah, creating a unique quandary for millions of American Jews unaware of the urgent need to take action. A large percentage of the Jewish population disregards many clarion voices warning them that now is the time to make Aliyah.

As we visit Orthodox communities in New York State, it is difficult to miss the expansion of new housing developments, schools, and even shopping malls. While many thrive in their businesses and commerce, there is a stark contrast and diversity in Jewish life in the tri-state region.

Some Orthodox religious communities live in poverty, just a short distance away from more opulent and secular Jewish communities.

The Church must rise up in persistent and fervent prayers to undergird and support the work of Aliyah in times of great distress. The declaration and proclamation of God’s Word are the only weapons that remove the obstacles on the Aliyah Highway.  Christians cannot afford to remain silent, for silence is the greatest sin of all. 

Aliyah is a holy work that only God can bring about – in His way, in His timing! Wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay! Presently, over half of the Jewish population in the US is expressing fear, feeling less safe than they did just a few years ago. May God give them the understanding that Israel is the safest place for them. As an Aliyah ministry, we continue to evaluate our ability to provide aid in new and unconventional ways in anticipation of a significant increase in Aliyah. At the close of last year, we had several opportunities to assist new Olim in Israel – to help them settle and feel safe in the Land.

Because of the rise of global anti-Semitism, the Jewish Agency for Israel predicts that a million Jewish people will make Aliyah within the next two years, mostly from the West. The LORD promises in Ezekiel 37:12 that He will open the graves of exile of His people and cause them to rise again. Then He will bring them back to the land of Israel.

We invite you, our friends and partners, to stand with us – declaring our unwavering support for Israel and solidarity with our Jewish friends. Together, let us raise our voices to uphold the truth of God’s prophetic Word and the covenant He made with Israel – giving the land to them as their inheritance for all generations. Thank you for your prayers and your support on behalf of the LORD’s holy work of Aliyah.

By Minister Phillip Israelson

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. James 1:2-3 AMPC

Now is the season of winter. Winter can be a time for trimming and pruning trees, shrubs, and plants with overgrowth or dead branches; cutting back rose bushes; putting down the last fertilizer for lawns and plants; then waiting for spring to bring new life and growth to all vegetation. So it is with our spiritual life in Christ.

All of Jesus’ disciples went through spiritual changes during seasons with various trials and tribulations, pressures and sufferings. All of Scripture tells of, or refers to, the trials and tribulations of the nation of Israel. The apostle Paul writes to the Corinthian church, “Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.”  1 Corinthians 10:11 NKJV

Today, both the nation of Israel and the true body of Christ are being refined: Israel through war and antisemitism; and the true body of Messiah through its stand with the Lord for His chosen land and people, as well as personal refinement for purity of spirit, soul, and body.

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. James 1:2-3 AMPC

The word refiner has been defined as “one who refines the precious metals, as silver or gold, by causing them to pass repeatedly through the furnace till their dross is taken away.” The goal of the Lord is to make all His servants pure and mature. This cannot be done without the testing of our faith and repenting of any dead works in our lives.

Can this stump live again?

In my book The Smallest Step of Obedience I relate a vision that the Lord gave me when I was struggling to know if He wanted me to be in full-time ministry or not. I had always been active in church work since the time I was born again and filled with the Holy Spirit at age sixteen – speaking on the street corners of downtown Seattle, Washington, praying for men at a city mission, or visiting seniors in a retirement home. After my wife Carolyn and I were married, we were active in teaching Sunday school, singing, or helping with youth activities after work during the week. We raised our children in church as much as in our Christian home. Our lives were full of church activities.

The Lord began to increase the desire in my heart to be used of Him in a greater way. I was beginning to have more fellowship with businessmen and laymen that God was using to pray for the sick and see them healed. These ordinary men were praying for people to be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues, and it was happening. I desired to be used of God like that.

In prayer one day, I was given a vision of a tree standing in front of me. A tall and beautiful tree with broad green leaves, like an Israeli fig tree. The Spirit spoke to me and said, “Go and pick the fruit on the tree.” I went over and pushed the leaves apart to find the fruit. As I went around the tree, I could not find any. I looked higher and still did not see any. Finally, I looked up to the very top, way above my head, and saw three or four pieces of fruit. I could not reach them and said so to the Lord.

It was silent for a while, and then the Spirit revealed to me that this tree represented my Christian life. My life was full of good church works and other Christian service, but it had not produced fruit that had come from the life of God, fruit that would remain. This was a revelation to me! Then the Lord asked, “Would you be willing to let Me cut down that tree?”

The next picture in front of me was of a stump in the ground. It was excruciating because I understood that the Lord wanted to cut down everything that I had tried to do for Him for seventeen years. I saw the disappearance of my reputation, my way of doing things for God, and, basically, having to start over in the light of this revelation.

Could I trust that the Lord would make something happen with this stump in the ground? The thought scared me! Was He able and willing to cause this stump to be a tree again and bear fruits of righteousness His way? At this time, I chose to believe that God was able to do it. With all my heart, I wanted to be a fruitful life in God’s hand.

And though a tenth [of the people] remain in the land, it will be for them destruction [eaten up and burned] like a terebinth tree or like an oak whose stump and substance remain when they are felled or have cast their leaves. The holy seed [the elect remnant] is the stump and substance [of Israel]. Isaiah 6:13 AMPC

A warning to the Hebrews and God’s chosen people

In the book of Hebrews, the writer emphasizes the need for messianic believers to separate themselves from the old Mosaic covenant of works for righteousness and to have a clear understanding that there is now a new and better covenant in Messiah Jesus: ‘Jesus is our righteousness. Works for salvation will not get you saved. There is now a new and living way to daily live unto God, through faith in the work that Jesus did on the cross once for all.’ In the fifth chapter, the writer is alarmed and stops his continuance of this wonderful revelation, realizing by the Spirit that the readers are “dull of hearing.” He must go back and remind them of elementary doctrine in the sixth chapter.

The first elementary teaching there is “repentance from dead works.” This is a good reminder today for all servants of God. Take time and reflect on your whole journey with the Lord. In all seriousness, how much of your life is filled with righteous fruit that remains? Are you satisfied that you have fulfilled what the Lord called and chosen you for? Are you daily leaning on Him to live by the Spirit?

The biblical definition of a “dead work” is anything that does not have the life of God in it. We are living in a time of refining within the true believer in Jesus. As the Hebrew writer exclaimed, “We have much to say about this but…many are slow to learn” (5:11). At present, many of God’s people and churches are filled with dead works like those mentioned in the book of Revelation’s letters to the churches. Any program or decision should be birthed in prayer, by praying in the Holy Spirit. In local churches and organizations, whenever appointments are to be made, leaders should select only Godly men and women full of the Holy Spirit – not just with speaking in tongues, but full of the Spirit.

Look at the life of Jesus. His works were not His own. His words were not His own. The only way to live a life without dead works is to live a life filled with the Holy Spirit. “…and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey Him.”  (Acts 5:32 KJV) The Holy Spirit will not allow Himself to be mixed with sin and fleshly desires.

Let’s look at our own individual lives and see what is not working. Survey your life in honesty: Is there anything not working in my life? In my marriage? In my business? In my service with God? In my relationship with others?

Repent from dead works and live with faith toward God.

Let’s pray: “Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name and ask that you show me any dead works in my life. I submit to the refining fire to burn out any dross in my heart and life, so that there will be life in all I do and say! Amen.”


what will the lord do? what will you do?



Know therefore this day that the Lord your God is He Who goes over before you as a devouring fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall dispossess them and make them perish quickly, as the Lord has promised you.

Deuteronomy 9:3 AMPC

As I write this article, “What Will The Lord Do? What Will You Do?”, Israel is at war! It is under attack by formidable enemies whose sole mission is to annihilate Israel. Militant terrorists have carried out the deadliest attack in Israel’s history, perpetrating barbaric acts of violence against Jewish men, women, and innocent children. The Jewish people have not witnessed such violence and loss of life since the Holocaust. This act of war against Israel has propelled the world to great instability and great danger. These are indeed perilous times. 

This is the time, This is the day, This is the hour for “we the people” – those who believe and trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – to stand and raise their voices in prayer and support for the Jewish people and for their nation – Israel. Just as God called Moses and chose him to be an instrument in His hand to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, to free them from slavery and lead them into their Promised Land, we too must stand in intercession for the Israelites. We must plead with the LORD for the sparing of His people as we read in Deuteronomy 9:26: “And I prayed to the LORD, O LORD God, do not destroy Your people and Your heritage, whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand.” (AMPC). Our intercession must be like Moses’ cry before God. We must identify with their suffering and pray that they will cry out to their God to save them! The LORD is faithful to answer their cries,

We are witnessing the buildup of world events that will bring about the culmination of the second exodus. The mighty Hand of God orchestrated the first exodus, and He is orchestrating a mass Aliyah to bring His people home to their Promised Land – Israel. Today, many are asking, “What will Israel do?” to defend itself against its mortal enemies? I believe the most crucial question to ask now is, “What will the LORD do? What is His plan?” We have full confidence, and we trust that the God of Israel will deliver His people from this present-day enemy – for His great Name’s sake! “For the LORD will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you a people for himself.” (1 Samuel 12:22 ESV) 

This is a time for action to help God’s people as they face the perils of this wicked war. Our personal responses to the LORD’s call to service will greatly impact our own personal lives and the lives of our Jewish friends. The needs will be great, and we will work together with Ebenezer Operation Exodus International to provide help and relief to Jewish people in new and unique ways!

This war also has the potential to bring dire consequences to America, placing Jewish people in grave danger. They need our prayers and support as never before as anti-Semitism continues to increase radically and grow louder throughout our nation. Are you prepared to answer God’s call to serve Him and His chosen people in perilous times? Let us join our voices to the LORD in thanksgiving and praise! “Sing to ADONAI! Praise ADONAI! For he rescues those in need from the clutches of evildoers.” Jeremiah 20:13 CJ 


In His mercy, God has arisen to fulfill His prophetic promises and to display to the world that His appointed time to favor Zion has come.



But You, ADONAI, sit enthroned forever. Your renown is from generation to generation.
You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her,for the appointed time has come, for her stones are dear to Your servants, and they cherish her dust. So the nations will fear ADONAI’s Name and all the kings of the earth Your glory.

Psalm 102:13-16 TLV

As Israel celebrates the 75th anniversary of her rebirth, we see her former desolation now cultivated, vineyards are flourishing on the hills of Samaria, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited by the exiles who have been regathered to the Land. In His mercy, God has arisen to fulfill His prophetic promises and to display to the world that His appointed time to favor Zion has come. This past May, God initiated a move that has brought into focus His everlasting love story with Jacob. If properly stewarded, this move will intensify and accelerate His parallel plans for the restorations of Israel and the Church – both of whom He has declared as holy nations set apart for Himself.

For the three weeks preceding Shavuot (Pentecost), many in the worldwide Church responded to a call to fast and pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the fulfillment of God’s covenant to redeem and restore Israel. Isaiah 62, the foundational Scripture for this call, details God’s plan for the restoration of the Land and His people, as well as the pivotal role the Church is to play in advancing His purposes. In this passage, the Church is depicted as fulfilling its call to administer God’s government in the earth through intercession. The intercessors’ relentless Israel’s glorious restoration is complete.

The hope of restoration rests not upon the faithfulness of the people, but upon the perfect faithfulness of a covenant-keeping God. He has staked the holiness of His name upon His triumphant restoration of all things. When He initiates something, its birth is exciting, but its maturity is His purpose. We see Him imparting to His Church His love for Israel – the Land to which He is married – and His people in whom He delights. Simultaneously, we see Him imparting to the heart of His Church its desperate need for His government. The maturity of these parallel initiatives will yield Isaiah 62’s fulfillment – His Church with His heart for His people, aligned with His purposes, establishing His Word in the earth under His authority.

How does a people who by nature seek to self-govern according to their ways and thoughts be transformed into the administrative assembly of God’s government according to His ways and His thoughts? Let us consider the declaration of the psalmist: “How precious is Your loving kindness, O God! The sons of man take shelter in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your delights.” Psalm 36:7-9

To whom does this offer of shelter apply? “Sons of man” indicates that all who bear the nature of man are included. It is not exclusive. These sons and daughters can come with their thoughts and their ways to Him and take refuge under the protections His government affords. He draws the sons of man to abide in the shadow of the Almighty, where His impenetrable wings protect against every external force. However,  a far more glorious provision than just protection is offered. He affords all that He has and all who He is to those who choose to partake from the abundance of His house and the river of His delights (or pleasures). There, He desires to share Himself – His delights, His purposes, His ways, His thoughts, His character, His righteousness, and His peace.

By necessity and by call, God is leading His Church to take refuge in Him, abide there, be sustained there, and be transformed there. Let us yield to His drawing and avail ourselves of His banquet table. There, we partake of His nature and cultivate a sophisticated palate able to discern the delicacies of His Kingdom and prepared to reject the cheap imitation. As He shares from the river of His delights, we encounter that which delights Him – what He loves, who He loves, and to what He remains zealous.

The Blood of His covenant has set us free from the wells that never satisfy. Let us take hope in the increase of His government, return, and abide in the shelter of His wings. Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord by feasting on the abundance of His house and drinking from the river of His delights. Let us press past the repetition of repentance that stalls at refreshing, and yield to the restoration to which He has committed the glory of His name.

These past 75 years have demonstrated that these are the days God has appointed to favor Zion. The Isaiah 62 prayer movement calls for the Church’s restoration to be established through its yielded participation in the restoration of Israel. He is imparting to His servants His love for her stones as He rebuilds them, and His compassion on His people born of her dust, who in His acceptance are restored to life from the dead. He is calling His Church to incline their hearts and minds to His call to active alignment with His revealed promise of restoration. This Isaiah 62 prayer movement indicates that now is the appointed time for the Church to arise in harmony with Her King to favor Zion.
