Back from Israel

23 02 2015

20150212_143814This wall in Megiddo has stood for over 3,000 years. It was part of the northern Israel palace of King Solomon. Israel itself is still standing after 3,000 years. Our trip was a joyous discovery of the foundations of the land and the people who Yehovah God chose as His own. We saw with our own eyes the incredible restoration and even resurrection of Israel. Only one hundred years ago it was a desolate “God-forsaken” desert land, as witnessed by Mark Twain in Innocents Abroad. This was the result of 400 years of Muslim Ottoman Turk rule where they even taxed trees, leading to the deforestation of the land. Since the Ottoman defeat in WWI, Jews have planted over 240 million trees. Today Israel again shows signs of the Garden of Eden.

We prayed and proclaimed Yehovah’s purpose everywhere we traveled, from the coast to the Golan and Mt. Hermon, where we played in the snow. We worshiped on the Jesus boat on the Sea of Galilee and held a Mikvah (baptism) as the “preparation of the bride”. We even visited the site where John the Baptist immersed Yeshua, the necessary “preparation of the bridegroom”.

We saw Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. We ascended Masada and walked down the Roman ramp. We rode camels in a Bedouin camp, visited Abraham’s well in old Beersheva, and even picked up smooth stones in the stream near David’s victory over Goliath.

Our four days in Jerusalem had too many highlights to list here, but walking on the Temple Mount was unforgettable. We were harassed by Muslims somewhat, but understood the significance of the holy location for Jews and Christians. The Dome of the Rock now dominates the skyline, but check out this scale model of the Temple compared to the scale model of the Dome. What a wonder of the world the Temple would have been.

20150218_145041We read Psalm 133 on Mt Hermon as a declaration of God’s purpose today to bless Israel and Zion with life forever!

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there Yehovah commanded the blessing—Life forevermore. Psalm 133

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!
