People always seem to have this must do before I die list, and you cannot
even begin to imagine what is on some people’s list. Everyone’s got a right to their own fantasies right? America or bust was one for me at a very yong impressionable age. Now I visit between 1 to 4 times a year. There’s hardly a day/week that passes without the country of Israel getting a mention in the press.Sadly, the contents are not exactly flattering and for ‘gullible’ public, israelis must be these monsters and oppressive people, Israel must be some war zone. People equally have their very strong opinions on her as well and that is not my place to start another arguement. My mother has been to israel twice as a pilgrim and I lurved the photographs. This was in the 80’s. I have since always had the dream (a la Martin Luther King) to visit this place of historical and more importantly to me spiritual significance. For the bible reading and loving people like me, the fact is that Jews (love em or hate em) are people with a convenant and via them and through Jesus, we become people of a convenant. I’ll like to visit my spiritual roots then. I am so excited and looking forward to this. We’ll be making this trip with some 350 people from the Netherlands and My senior pastor who’s also an evangelist will be holding healing meetings in 3 messianic jewish churches! That will be something as we believe to see Jesus the Jew and the Christ manifest himself in miracles amongs our Jewish brothers and sisters in Tel Aviv, Ashdod and haifa. And of course some tourist visits, the Jaffa Gate, Sea of Galilie, the Jordan river et. c
I should hopefully go in full daily blog mode when I get there. Is Israel on your list of would like to visit? have you already been? What’s on your list of must dos?
Shalom my firend.
