Word from Jerusalem – August 2018

From terror tunnels to rocket attacks to fire kites and explosive balloons, Israelis living in the area around the Gaza Strip continue to endure.  This month’s edition of Word from Jerusalem details the response of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem.  President Jurgen Buhler shares an interesting fact about Israelis living in that chaotic area:

“On our recent visit to the area, our team was astonished to see the resilience of the local inhabitants. Personally, I was concerned that many people would begin to leave the area, but I was surprised to hear that most communities along Gaza are growing! Kfar Aza, for example, is building housing units for 40 more families to join the community. This represents an increase of 30 percent, a remarkable growth rate for a small border Kibbutz in the midst of troublesome times.”
~Jurgen Buhler, ICEJ President

Word from Jerusalem – July 2018

Blessed Lord’s Day, dear friends!

I want to bless you with the latest issue of Word from Jerusalem, the monthly publication of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ).  This month’s e-magazine’s focus is on the impact of Israel’s re-birth.

Yes, it is a very big deal, not only in Israel, but for Jews and Christians around the world, as the prophetic impact is eternal!  In May, Israel celebrated the 70th anniversary of her rebirth, and is enjoying great prosperity…just as Scripture says they will!  (Read Ezekiel 38 for evidence.)

This issue contains articles such as:

  • The Impact of Israel’s Rebirth – written by ICEJ VP and Senior Spokesman, David Parsons.  (David was one of the attorneys who helped draft the Jerusalem Embassy Act that paved the way for the US Embassy’s move to Jerusalem.)

  • Was Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem the Right Thing to Do? – Daryl Hedding (Deputy Director of the US Branch of ICEJ) provides a well-thought commentary on the move of the embassy.

Word from Jerusalem – May 2018

Hey friends, in only a few days the international celebration of Israel’s 70th birthday will take place.  Not only is Israel’s 70th year significant in terms of Biblical importance, but it will be an especially meaningful celebration as the US and others move their embassies to Jerusalem!  Gear up…the excitement is about to begin!

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, which by the way, moved in when every other embassy was moving out of Jerusalem, and had a significant part in the decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel.  ICEJ’s VP and Senior Spokesman, David Parsons, was one of the authors of the original legislation that became the Jerusalem Embassy Act, and ICEJ-US Branch spearheaded a petition campaign and letters to the White House, encouraging the move.

Now, ICEJ has dedicated May’s issue of Word from Jerusalem to the celebration of the US Embassy’s move.  In this issue you will find:

  • ICEJ Prayer 2.0 – article by ICEJ President, Jurgen Buhler, who shares his vision of the tidal wave of prayer sweeping all over the world
  • An Israel on the Rise – highlighting Israel’s resiliency and determination
  • The Christian Role in Israel’s Founding
  • Human interest stories from throughout the land…and more!

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to get an inside glimpse into Israel’s 70th anniversary!  Enjoy!
