Shabbat Shalom, friends! We are approaching Passover (known as “Pesach” in Hebrew), the first of the 7 feasts of Israel. Each feast, in a different way, harkens back to the Jews’ redemption from Egyptian bondage. Yet, each feast paints a beautiful picture of Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of every feast!
In Israel and around the world, Jews will celebrate Passover, beginning sundown on April 10. Yet, did you know that 20% of Israelis live below the poverty line? That makes it virtually impossible to purchase and enjoy the trappings of the Passover meal.
However, one of the annual projects of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) is to share the love of Jesus to needy Jewish families by providing the food source necessary to prepare their own Passover meal. ICEJ exists to provide comfort to Israel, as commanded in Isaiah 40:1-2:
“Comfort, O comfort My people,” says your God.
“Speak kindly to Jerusalem;
And call out to her, that her warfare has ended,
That her iniquity has been removed,
That she has received of the Lord’s hand
Double for all her sins.”
(Read the entire chapter when you have a few moments!)
For more than 30 years, the Embassy has done that! Providing comfort and speaking kindly in the name of Jesus Christ. At a time when every other embassy in Jerusalem moved out, ICEJ moved in to represent the millions of Christians around the world in support of Israel!
Listen to the stories from those who received special gifts from the International Christian Embassy last year. (Click on the image below.)
If you are looking for a way to comfort and bless Israel, as Isaiah 40 instructs, why not join ICEJ in efforts to bless Jews with special meals this Passover!
Blessings…and shabbat shalom!
