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.

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.
Thank you for your prayers everyday before the sun sets. Please know that on behalf of the Jewish nation and people Jay and I thank you for those faithful prayers that we as a nation LIVE!
