US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, continues to impress with her composure and respect, despite delivering strong and authoritative messages. Her stance with Israel continues to be unwavering as well. Click below to watch her recent 15-minute interview on CBN.
Lela Gilbert went to Israel for a visit…and stayed for 6 years. Her fascination with the land and with the Judeo-Christian-Islamic conflict led to her recently released book, Saturday People, Sunday People.
The premise is one I wrote about in 2015 (When Saturday is Gone, One will find Sunday), and it goes like this: the Islamic agenda is to wipe out Jews (“Saturday people”) first, then Christians (“Sunday people”). Indeed, we are seeing that agenda push forward as radicals take aim at destroying both Judaism and Christianity in efforts to spread Islam.
Lela Gilbert sat down for an interview with CBN in Jerusalem, and you can find that interesting 6-minute interview at Islamist Assault: ‘Saturday Kill Jews, Sunday Kill Christians.’
Take a few minutes to watch, then pray for persecuted Jews and Christians throughout the Middle East.
Almost daily, Israel is accused of human rights violations. The UN sanctions Israel more than any other country on the planet, and neighboring people groups are constantly alleging abuses. But the fact is, since 1980, Israel has provided humanitarian aid to 140 different countries around the world, and her stories are being told on a broader scale than ever before.
I’ve had the privilege of meeting and hearing Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network, talk about his love for Israel. CBN now has a significant presence in Israel, and Jerusalem Dateline has become a trusted source of news out of Israel.
CBN has also produced fantastic documentaries such as The Hope: The Rebirth of Israel and In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem. Both are high-quality, historically accurate depictions of two very key events in modern Israeli history: their rebirth, and victory in the 1967 Six Day War. (You can find them here.)
Recently, they have release To Life: How Israeli Volunteers are Changing the World. We previewed it at the ICEJ/ACLI Conference in Washington DC last month and it left me glued to my seat. Here is the official trailer:
The 1.5-hour movie is astounding, and well worth carving out time to take it in. You can view it for free online, so gather the family this weekend and get a glimpse of the incredible things Israel is doing for the world.
The Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) has ramped up Israel-related coverage in the past few years. They produce regular Jerusalem Dateline segments and have an “Inside Israel” page on their website. As a Christian organization that supports Israel, they are leading the media charge in taking up issues specific to Israel.
Gordon Robertson, president of CBN, was present and spoke at last week’s ICEJ/ACLI Summit in Washington DC, committing to continue efforts to put Israel positively in the news.
Recently, CBN produced The Embassy Move to Jerusalem: What it Means Politically and Prophetically. I encourage you to take time to view the 22-minute report that includes Robertson’s comments at the Summit, VP Mike Pence’s comments at the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC, and an interview with the Guatemalan Ambassador to Israel following the opening of their embassy two days following the US Embassy.
Also, as you know, US Ambassador David Friedman now has a new address. As the United States Ambassador to Israel, Friedman represents the interests of America to Israel, and became the first ambassador to occupy an official embassy in Jerusalem when, on May 14, the US officially moved the embassy from Tel Aviv.
The quiet-spoken, level-headed ambassador reflected on the move in a recent interview with the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN). As we get used to diplomats moving into embassies in Jerusalem, it is no small matter that the US was the first to take the leap.
Listen to Ambassador Friedman’s comments (including a little-known story about President Trump) here.
As the “new” wears off and the embassy staff continues to take the necessary steps to stand with Israel, will you pray for Ambassador Friedman and his staff? Pray God’s richest blessings upon them, and that God’s divine wisdom will guide their plans. Blessings to the ambassador, and blessings to you!
