Join us along with Encounters Network, Nashville House of Prayer, and Worship City Alliance and many others on October 6th at 6:30pm at Grace Center in Franklin, TN. This will be a time of unified worship and prayer to bless Israel and the Jewish people. Worship will be led by Grace Center’s own Luke Finch.
“The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets” (Psalm 50:1).
“The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears, and I have not been rebellious; I have not drawn back” (Isaiah 50:4-5).
My interest in Israeli politics has greatly increased since our last trip to Israel. We arrived during the recent time when rockets were being fired daily into the area near Gaza. We called one of the young congregational leaders in the south and found that he was coming to Jerusalem later in the day, so we planned to meet for coffee.
This week one of our brothers in Israel told of a donation made by Christians in the US to an Israeli group that aggressively persecutes believers in Yeshua/Jesus inside Israel.
“I have no problem with a donation that aims at blessing Israel,” he said, “yet I have to question why funds are being donated to ones who have clearly set out to persecute and even kill local Jewish believers. Who is actually funding this persecution?”
Remember the words of Yeshua,
“By their fruits you shall know them.” May the Lord continue to make all of us people of lavish generosity, but may He also direct us through His Holy Spirit to whom we should give.
