Resurgence of Faith- An Article by Tommy Waller

The land and the people of Israel have become personal to me. It may have been, at one point, something superstitious––like a rabbit’s foot that I would keep in my pocket to bring good fortune. After all, every good Christian Zionist knows if you hold onto a rabbit’s foot, you will be blessed. I’m not sure when it happened, certainly not all at once. Before I came to Israel, I had no understanding of the importance or value the Land or the people had to me as a Christian. I understood my Christianity originated from this place, but as far as a personal connection, I understood that any correlation I had was done away with almost 2,000 years ago. We now refer to this belief as replacement theology. But then God, as He has in my life over and over, made a presentation. How many times have we thought one way and then saw or heard something that completely changed our view? I’m not sure how God speaks to you. To some, the following may seem extreme. But it seems that God speaks to me more effectively in the extreme. I remember the first time I saw a baby being murdered in its own mother’s womb. Jolted to my very core, I could no longer turn my head while multiple millions of children were legally murdered in our world. And yes, the U.S. influence on Israel in this area has been devastating. Just as much as I was shaken physically and mentally from the presentation of this horrific injustice, I was shaken spiritually when God made a presentation in Israel. It was there that I began to see how far my faith had strayed from the literal Word of God. As gross immorality continues to rise in our world, we are struggling to find biblical ground. Our smorgasbord approach to Scripture has run many good-intentioned Christians into a corner. My point is that not believing, or even being indifferent to, God’s spoken Word/Promise concerning the Land and People of Israel delegitimizes a huge portion of Scripture––including the New Testament. Yeshua quotes from Deuteronomy 8:3 in both Matthew and Luke 4:4: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Many of us would fight fiercely in support of Creation. Why? Because we believe God spoke the universe into existence. The idea that the whole world happened through some crapshoot is ridiculous to many. We now have an amazing Creation Science Museum in Kentucky with many proofs of a created world. But, what happened between Genesis 1-2 and Genesis 12? Was it the same God who spoke in both places? What happened? Were we also confused by the snake when he whispered, “Did God really say…”? Israel exists as a home for the Jewish people because God spoke it. If we compromise on this Word/Promise, then we may as well trash all of Scripture, including all of your pro-life and marriage Scriptures. Our Christian traditions have made replacement theology a difficult hurdle to jump over. The world’s moral crisis is now. Hurdle jumping practice has begun on the Mount of Blessing. If you or your congregation is in need of a resurgence of faith, there is still room to participate in God’s plan for the world as this season of prophecy unfolds in your generation.

What Do Nehemiah & August 5th Have In Common?

Did you know that the 4th of Av (August 5th) marked the beginning of the rebuilding of Jerusalem under Nehemiah’s leadership? “So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days. And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God.” Nehemiah 6:15-16 Right now, HaYovel has an unprecedented opportunity. A generous donor has stepped forward with a tremendous investment opportunity. He has pledged $250,000 to HaYovel – if we can match it. These funds will go to specific projects. You can read more about those projects here. Praise God, we’ve already raised over $100,000 of these funds! Here’s where you come in. By making a critical donation to HaYovel today, you can be a direct part of building up Zion, just like Nehemiah and the people of Israel did. Donate to the Nehemiah Building Challenge TODAY! At whatever level you can give, please consider making a crucial donation today. And remember, every dollar you give is matched, making your gift count... Read MoreRead More

Pulling No Punches with the United Nations

Joshua and Luke are back together broadcasting from the Mt of Blessing deep in the heart of the Biblical Heartland of Israel. Loving Israel’s stones and dust has taken on a whole new meaning for Joshua as he led a group of volunteers in search for the actual site of the Shiloh Tabernacle. Ayelet Shaked is now leading the New Right party in the upcoming elections, and has taken on the daunting task of uniting all right wing parties in the government. In the meantime, Jason Greenblatt recently gave a speech to the United Nations about the peace plan. In his speech, which Joshua and Luke dissect, he pulls no punches with the UN, and proves that the United States is not afraid to declare the truth about Israel, Judea and Samaria, and the united capital of Jerusalem.
