Dear Faithful Friend,
We are at the end of the season of the Fall Feasts and life in Israel has been busy with the observance of these Biblical appointments. We celebrated the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShana) and the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). We are now just ending the festive and joyous celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth).
The Bible declares in Zechariah 14 that after Yeshua returns and establishes his Kingdom on earth, the nations will come up to Jerusalem every Sukkot to celebrate the Feast and remember, declare and rejoice in God's love and faithfulness. In a foretaste of that, Jerusalem has been filled to capacity this week as believers from the nations of the earth gather here to prophetically fulfill this commandment.
The celebrations have been extensive and wonderful. We have had the joy of attending some of the Feast of Tabernacles Conference put on by the International Christian Embassy. Over six thousand believers from eighty nations of the world gathered together in honor of this Feast and appointment with God. On Monday evening, we had the privilege of spending several hours at a VIP gathering with some non believing members of the Israeli government and business world. The food they served was great and the privilege of sharing the love and testimony of Yeshua with several of Israel's VIPs was even more wonderful.
I am also grateful to the ICEJ for asking me to participate. On this past Shabbat, Salim, a dear faithful Arab brother and I led the Communion Service at the Garden Tomb with over 2,000 people in attendence. Tuesday afternoon I shared a message on Sukkot with believers from all over the world. What a blessing it was to have this opportunity! It had rained heavily in the morning and the Succah where I was meant to speak was wet! After drying the chairs off, the sun came out and as soon as I finished speaking, the rains started again!
ICEJ Conference in Jerusalem
Last Saturday we had an intercongregational celebration of Sukkot. There were over 600 in attendance, this time mostly local believers. It too was really amazing. The presence of God was poured out upon us and by God's grace, we are confident that it will pour out from all of us onto the unsaved of Israel and all the nations of the earth. Join us in praying for a flood of God's Spirit in Jerusalem as we continue to grow in unity and we will join you in praying for that same flood in the town where you live. Together we will see the wonder of God's End Time promises fulfilled in our day. He who promised is faithful!
Welcoming the King of Glory Conference
And for the first time in Messianic history, the Israeli Body of Messiah hosted an International conference: "Welcoming the King of Glory. All this week over 1,000 believers from the nations and Israel have gathered in Abu Gosh, an Arab town close to Jerusalem. The presence and power of God that has been present in every meeting has been awesome. We praise God that we as saved Israel have been able to host and bless so many people from all over the world. (Over 90% were from the nations). The final meeting is being held this morning in the heart of Jerusalem. Pray that as we are joined together in unity it will be a step forward in God's End Time purposes and requirements. The Bible is clear that this unity between Jew and Gentile must occur before His return. Only if we stand together, will we be able welcome the King of Glory home.
Welcome the King of Glory Conference
