Dear Friends: This evening ushers in the saddest day on Israel’s calendar in ancient and modern history. The Jewish people have suffered millenia of incredible losses. Both temples, Solomon’s and Herod’s were destroyed on this day, as was the Jewish Community of Spain in 1492 to name but three disasters. Jews begin to fast from 7 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. tomorrow night with no water. They mourn the destruction and loss. It is also a time for repentance for the sins of our fathers. We weep over what has been lost and pray with longing and hope for the promised coming Redemption. Some Jews believe that Messiah will come on this sacred day, when the people have prepared themselves. We read the book of Lamentations or Ek? in Hebrew. It sounds just like it is written… Ek… say it! Ek! This is literally an expression, even ‘a sound’ that one makes when there are no words… The Rabbis teach that we have suffered destruction because of senseless hatred and evil speaking among ourselves. We …
When Will it Stop? On Friday, 21 July 2017, a family sat down to the Shabbat table to celebrate the Sabbath and the birth of a baby boy. This should have been a time of great joy but turned in to a great tragedy… See full story tap / click here >>
Israel today, in spite of continual attacks, war, terror and prejudice is a miracle of survival. Israel has not only survived for seven decades and overcome great obstacles, it is now one of the most fertile countries on earth. Israeli innovations, especially in medicine and agriculture have impacted the quality of life for a huge part of humanity. “Made in Israel” traces how Israeli inventors have become world leaders in start up companies. Now Israel is becoming known as the “Scale Up” country as more an more innovations are birthed, nurtured and blossomed via Israeli companies. PS, We are close friends with Chris Mitchell, CBN bureau chief here in Jerusalem and he has authorized us to run this movie. Over the years he has used excerpts of our productions for their 700 Club TV show that is broadcast world wide.
12 young girls were assaulted in the midst of a party? The question that begs to be asked is: “How is this possible in broad day light in a public area?” Where are the chaparones, where are the parents? Where? With the whole world in an uproar over the issue of immigrants, look at this! Compassion is one thing, and wisdom is another, but it is time for a reality check. Telling the truth of what can be expected from people who have come out of war zones, not properly vetted, can make all of the difference. Our youth are at risk when those in postions of authority are painfully nieve. The world watched yesterday Canadian Prime Minister met with the US President. Mr. Trump is belittled because of his temporary ban on immigrants from 7 war and terror infested nations, Syria being one of them. Well, Mr. Trudeau has taken another posture. But, as these leaders gave their press conference in Washington DC, little did we know of the firestorm Trudeau left behind in Canada. A Syrian refugee came to Canada …
The modern nation of Israel has deep Biblical and historical roots in ancient Israel. One never knows when or where the next amazing archaeological discovery will be. Archaeologists in Israel have uncovered a Roman amphitheater in Hippos. This ancient city has been unearthed on the salt route to Damascus. It was on this road when Pau, the persecuto, was blinded by a heavenly light that caused him to fall off of his horse. Being the religious Jew that he was, he used an achronym for the unpronouncable name of God, always spelling with capitals. Wonderingly Paul inquired: “Who are you LORD?” The answer came back… “I am Jesus!” He was stunned! That was the beginning of his transformation. The rest is history.
150 years ago, Jewish artists and intellectuals from Central and Eastern Europe, reclaimed Jesus as a Jew to bring him back into the fold. One of the most exciting articles I ever read in the Jerusalem Post was years ago, it was entitled. “When are we going to reclaim Jesus?” There is an awakening here and in the Jewish world now that Jesus is a incredibly significant historical fact, which needs to be reclaimed. See the exhibition.
Media coverage of the Arab – Israeli conflict often dwells on the negative relations between the two peoples while the facts reveal the opposite story. This article is a must read for all.
The Sea is at its lowest since 1972. The entire nation of Israel prays for rain, no matter what their religious persuasion is. We depend upon the former and latter rains to keep us alive here. <a href=”http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/222640″>Read more here on Israel National News</a>
I know and am a witness, says the LORD. Jeremiah 29:23 Kay Wilson is also a witness. Giving testimony at a Stand With Us event in Sussex England, she relives her experience with Palestinian terror. Please do not say, “Oh not again enough!” This is an unforgettable account of innocence lost as she witnessed the murder of a Christian friend right in front of her. Yet she survived against all odds. I want all who watch this to understand, that NOTHING has changed. I pray her voice will be heard or she just crying in the wilderness? For newcomers, here is a little back ground. The Palestinian Authority has not changed its agenda since it started in 1964. PA President Mahmood Abbas, 81, a Holocaust denier, inherited a tradition of tyranny. His predecessor, Yasser Arafat, was also President of the PA for life. Nothing has changed. There are no free elections in the Palestinian Authority. In 2005 I, Meridel Rawlings, did extensive research on abuse in the PA. Living in Jerusalem, I consulted with Israelis, Palestinians and Christian Arabs. …
The earth is reeling today under the threat of terror. Multitudes are numb with grief and pain, prayer for them perhaps is just mute silence. Let those of us who are quiet and at ease, pick up the slack, and remember the suffering in loving prayer. Today the ‘valley of decision’ is crowded with humanity from every nation. We can remember them. Here’s how.
