8,700 More Ethiopians Awaiting Aliyah to Israel

In recent years, over 120,000 Ethiopian Jews have made aliyah (return to the Jewish homeland, Israel).  As you can imagine, the cultural adjustment from third world conditions to one of the most high-tech countries on earth is mountainous.  Yet, there are 8,700 Ethiopian Jews yearning for the opportunity to “come home.”

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has played a huge role in not only chartering flights on which Ethiopian Jews have returned, but also providing resources to help them assimilate.  Now, they are on a mission to bring home the final 8,700!

To that end, ICEJ has produced a documentary entitled Journey of Dreams, and is making it available to those who contribute at least $50 USD toward the effort to bring them home.  Here is a trailer of the documentary:

Against All Odds, How did the Jewish People Survive?

I don’t know if you are familiar with IsraelAnswers, but if not (and you love Israel), you should be!  Have you ever wondered about the Jews’ connection to the land of Israel?  Do you wonder about the whole Palestinian thing?  As a Christian, do you understand why it is important to stand with Israel?

These and many other important topics are covered and you will get answers to your questions about Israel.  Here is a great place to start, so I hope you’ll take a few minutes to discover…

The Jerusalem Post Recognizes ICEJ’s Service to Israelis

Hi friends!  In May, the US moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.  However, if you are a Christian, did you know YOU have an embassy in Jerusalem, and that it was the only embassy in Jerusalem for many years prior to America moving their embassy there?

Indeed, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has been representing Christians from around the world to Israel since 1980, with Biblical purposes of providing comfort and blessing to Israel (Isaiah 40:1, Genesis 12:3), as well as proclaiming God’s steadfast plan to fulfill His promises to restore the Jewish people to their land and to relationship with God (Ezekiel 36:24-28).  They are the “hands and feet” of all of us who love Israel and wish to bless her!

Over the years, the ICEJ has worked tirelessly:

  • Providing care and a place to live to Holocaust survivors (Haifa Home for Holocaust Survivors)
  • Providing dozens of portable bomb shelters to cities along the Gaza border
  • Donating several fire-fighting vehicles to battle the arson fires set by incendiary balloons and other devices from the Gaza Strip
  • Outfitting IDF and police units with body armor
  • Sponsoring numerous plane loads of Jews making aliyah (returning to the homeland)
  • Teaching and speaking all over the world, emphasizing the importance of understanding Israel’s place in God’s plan
  • Hosting an annual Feast of Tabernacles celebration where Christians from around the world come to Jerusalem to worship the King of Kings, and to share their love with Israeli citizens
  • Hosting tours for pastors and for young people, designed to encourage leaders and young people to spread the truth about Israel
  • Providing Passover meals and other food to those living in poverty in Israel
  • Providing basic needs, loving, and caring for orphans, children and at-risk youth
  • …many other humanitarian and educational initiatives

The ICEJ has been praised by the Israeli government, other NGOs, and the people they serve.  Recently, The Jerusalem Post published a glowing article touting the efforts of the ICEJ.  (Find it here.)

If you are a Christian who loves Israel and desires to obey the Biblical command to bless Israel, I encourage you to learn more about the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem and consider partnering with them in prayer and/or financially.  You will be blessed!

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.
~Luke 6:38

Celebrating Israel at the Feast of Tabernacles

2018 Jerusalem March

The nations of the world took to the streets of the Holy City last Thursday!  Christians from around the world were in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, part of which includes the annual Jerusalem March where delegations march behind their nation’s flag, wishing Israeli citizens “Chag Sameach” (Happy Holiday) while handing out small trinkets and candy to Jewish children.

After marching in the streets and inviting Israelis to that evening’s gathering, Christian pilgrims descended upon Pais Arena for the final night of festivities at the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem’s Feast of Tabernacles extravaganza.  The finale is always a very special occasion as Israeli citizens are honored on “Israeli Night.”

Thursday night’s fun-filled festivities were recorded and, though lengthy, I encourage you to enjoy it.  (Perhaps watch it in segments.)  There are a couple of surprises, lots of incredible evidence of Israel’s blessings to the world, and much celebration.

You really must see it, so catch it here if you can!

PS: If you have supported the Haifa Home for Holocaust survivors, there is a significant announcement, so look for it!
