American college students are being absolutely bombarded by Antisemitism and hatred of many kinds or our college campuses. Students are being brainwashed by liberal agendas of all sorts, but one that is significantly concerning to me is the work of “Students for the Justice of Palestine.”
Their agenda includes spreading hate and lies regarding Israel, and very actively promoting the BDS movement (among other evils). If you have college-age students or know some, I encourage you to become familiar with what they face, and do whatever possible to guide them in a different direction. Pray diligently for them, speak truth to them and encourage them in the Lord.
Take a look at what they face:
Yesterday I suggested taking advantage of Yad Vashem’s free online course, Antisemitism: From its Origin to the Present. It is a great way to learn more about this Jew hatred. Also, please pray!
Hi friends! I want to encourage you to take advantage of a fantastic opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the Holocaust (what led up to it, how it happened and the impact it had). The Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and International School for Holocaust Studies is offering a free online course entitled “Antisemitism: From its Origin to the Present,” and I highly recommend it.
In 2015 I had the tremendous privilege of attending a Christian Leaders Seminar at Yad Vashem, where I sat under the teaching of the world’s experts on Holocaust study. The online course, of which I also partook about a year ago, was also developed by Yad Vashem staff. It is very well done and, though you may not agree with every classmates’ comments, there is abundant opportunity to engage if you choose to. Teaching sessions are taught online by world-renown experts, and you can access those teachings at your convenience.
The entire course is free, with no hidden charges, though there is an option to upgrade if you want a certificate of completion and unlimited access to course content. For more information or to register, click here. Why not jump in this weekend! Enjoy!
PS: Check back tomorrow to find out why it is important to understand the issue of antisemitism and what you can do to combat it.
Master Sgt Roddie Edmonds – Righteous Among the Nations
In December 2015 I attended a Christian Leaders Seminar at Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and Research Center in Jerusalem. In my class was a pastor from Tennessee named Chris Edmonds, and little did we know what excitement we would experience over the course of those 8 days at Yad Vashem.
We learned early on that Chris’ dad, Master Sgt Roddie Edmonds, had saved the lives of over 200 Jewish-American soldiers in WW2, and that Yad Vashem was nearing completion of the long process of confirming those facts. While in class one day, word came that it was official: Master Sgt Roddie Edmonds was posthumously designated by Yad Vashem as “Righteous Among the Nations,” Israel’s highest honor given to non-Jews who risked their own lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.
The media circus started that day, as Edmonds became one of only a very few Americans to be so honored by Yad Vashem. Chris was immediately bombarded by media requests, the honoring ceremony happened on January 27 (Holocaust Remembrance Day) in 2016, Chris was invited to share his dad’s story at AIPAC 2016, and attempts to garner a Congressional Medal of Honor ensued. Most recently, a movie has been produced about Edmonds’ heroism. Indeed, it is a very fascinating story.
AISH.com just released the 2-minute version (below) of the story. Click the links above to hear more of the fascinating story! (My favorite is the AIPAC 2016 video!) Enjoy!
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.)
- Learning to Remember: A Visit to Yad Vashem – Yad Vashem is the Holocaust Memorial, Museum and Educational center in 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.
- …many other articles highlighting the various ministries and outreaches of ICEJ
Here is the magazine. I pray your are blessed by it!
