Please Pray for Rabbi Yehuda Glick

According to multiple breaking reports out of Jerusalem, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, the chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation was gravely wounded today in an assassination attempt on his life. Briefly, Glick is a student of the late Rabbi Menachem Fromen. He is a very sweet man with a passion to see Jews free to worship and pray on the Temple Mount. After corresponding over the past few years, we finally had the chance to spend some time together last year in Jerusalem. Glick is interviewed in my latest film concerning developments toward the building of the Jewish Temple. Right now, my heart is just breaking for Glick and his family. Reports are that he was shot point blank four times. On his behalf, I am asking that you please remember him in prayer tonight as news continues to come in concerning his condition.

Update: Reports are that Glick was shot in the chest, stomach, and hand. After surgery, he is in serious, but stable condition. More surgeries are scheduled. Doctors have said they expect a full recovery without any disabilities. I would absolutely put this in the category of miraculous. The Lord has more for this man. Do however continue to pray for his full recovery, as well as a powerful revelatory, transformational encounter with the Lord during this time.

On another note, after Israeli police surrounded the shooter’s home, he opened fire on police and was killed. The Temple Mount has been closed. Abbas has called it a “declaration of war.”


The following videos are from my interview with Glick in Jerusalem last year. Most of these clips are not featured in the film. While I do not agree, of course, with Glick concerning the idea that Muslims and Jews and Christians all worship the same God, in light of the abundance of demagoguery in the left-wing media casting Glick as a “right-wing extremist” etc., I thought some of these clips were important to share. Rabbi Glick is a courageous man of faith, but he is most certainly not an extremist. He is a man of peace. The extremists are not only those who sought to take Glick’s life, but also the left wing media that have cast Glick as a radical right-wing agitator before they even took the time to know who he really is. Let us pray that he comes to know Yeshua the Messiah.

    How awful, Joel!

    Praying that God gives him grace and healing to save his life and wisdom for the doctors. Comfort and prayers to his family. Anti-Semitism is front and center and true to your documentary film as evil again raises its ugly head.

    Praying. I heard he was in stable condition now. Is this the same gentleman who met a few years back with Mr. Oktar?

  • Joel

    Yes. That’s how we initially connected.

    You will make it Rabbi. I haven’t stopped praying since I first heard Thursday morning. The same POWER that raised Jesus/Yeshua from the dead will heal your broken wounded body. I believe it. You are a good man of God. Please be well. Shalom from Michigan USA. (met you on a tour when you spoke at the Dan Jerusalem Hotel in May 2014) You WILL see the 3rd temple. Hang in there.

    Thank the Lord that he continues to stabilize and improve. Beyond praying for a full recovery, I’ve been praying that he would have powerful, revelatory, transformational encounter with the Lord as well.

    When I first heard that he was shot four times point blank, my heart absolutely sunk. Who lives through things like this?

    All I can say is, Tupac eat your heart out. Rabbi Glick is the true gangsta.

    There is no doubt, all, God has a purpose for this man and a reason he survived. You cannot survive this kind of assassination attempt without the all-powerful sovereignty of God foiling Satanic efforts. In my opinion, this is God moving through a miracle. Just my personal opinion.

    Hi Joel,
    Here is a prayer meeting in Jerusalem for your friend Rabbi Glick. We thank God for the miracle thus far & continue to pray for his full recovery. We are also praying for your trip to Erbil & the safety of you & your team.

    Be strong in the Lord & the power of His might,
    BJ & Alisa

    Thanks BJ and Alisa,

    Excited about what God is going to do while there.

    Lifted up the Rabbi tonight that God would both continue his gracious healing, and reveal to him Messiah Jesus. I pray for the wind of God’s Spirit that Jesus spoke about to Nicodemus, teacher of Israel. That through the work of God’s Spirit, Rabbi Glick would be given eyes to see the glory of God in Jesus.

    This sheds light on how far people will go to maintain their sincerity.

    Malachi Martin in “The Keys of This Blood” referenced Mao’s poem, “Cold eyed I contemplate the world”, and how some would rather choose death than recant what they believe.

    Sincerity matters, but it is up to others to rescue when a person is sincerely wrong.

    I agree with you that Rabbi Glick’s recovery borders on the miraculous. To be shot multiple times and not only survive and not receive any lasting disability indicates that God’s hand may have intervened.

    If this is true, we must ask why? Might Yehuda be instrumental in starting sacrificial worship in Israel again? Might he encounter Jesus and be one of the 144,000 witnesses found in Revelation?

    Obviously we don’t know, but I plan to watch him closely. Perhaps he will play a significant prophetic role in Jesus’ return? I am praying for his recovery and salvation, and that God uses him for his Glory.

    What a likeable man, I’m glad he’s ok. I suppose he could sell a lot of people on his plan for ecumenism. Would it be bad for a Christian to go and pray in a place like He’s describing in the video clips?

    Sometimes I do struggle, that people like Rabbi Glick still have eyes that have not been opened. He has a genuine passion for the living God. Yet many Christians would greatly benefit the kingdom with a passion like his.

    Just written to a Guardian journalist, regarding his radio interview on temple mount and Rabbi Glick, pointing out that while he incorrectly calls Mr Glick a far right extremist, he tellingly forgot to name the shooter as a would-be murderer. I encouraged him to keep watching the news, as contrary to his belief, the Jewish temple would indeed be rebuilt.

    May the God of Israel,heal Rabbi Glick and keep him strong to finish his destiny on earth as it is in Heaven.

    Our family is praying for his fast recovery! I would like to send him a card and letter of support but nowhere can I find a mailing address. Even the hospital gives no mailing address. Thank you very much…

    You said, “It’s Glick you idiots!”

    This kind of arrogance, and rude behavior will get you no where. Move along.
