A blessed year of uniting the Church with God's passion for Israel

The year of 2015 has been full of new opportunities, great challenges and tremendous blessing for the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem. Serving as the bridge between the Christians from around the world and the nation of Israel we were privileged to once again leave a lasting impact on the people of this land by fulfilling God’s command to comfort His people and stand fast in His Word. 

 

COMPASSION

The ICEJ continues to progressively achieve the goal of reaching every segment of Israeli society through assistance projects, which target areas of need throughout Israel. Support from Christians worldwide is crucial, and has a profound effect in this special land. Our mission is to be wise stewards of that support; to be the hands and feet of those who desire to bless Israel in practical ways. On the following pages of this magazine you can read some highlights of what great work has been accomplished in 2015.

 

EDUCATION

In 2015 the ICEJ made it a priority to bring a prophetic message to the Church around the world. Directors of ICEJ have traveled to every continent teaching the church about God’s plans for Israel and His covenant with the Jewish people, and encouraging Christians to pray for Israel. The ICEJ continues to host the Envision Conference for pastors and Christian leaders at the beginning of every year. The diverse spectrum of speakers and time for personal connections made the 2015 conference a great success, and we hope to develop this vision even further in the years to come.

 

MOBILISATION

The Church can no longer afford to remain lukewarm regarding matters of highest importance to the Lord of Hosts: The people and the land of Israel. The ICEJ branches in over 80 nations have organized multiple rallies, conferences and other events to demonstrate Christian support for Israel, while also bringing awareness, mobilizing the society, and building relationships with local governments.

None of the ICEJ work would be possible, if it weren’t preceded with prayer. Every project, initiative or event is first brought to God’s throne of grace. At the same time, prayer is what unites us Christians across the nations and links us to Israel. The Isaiah 62 Prayer Initiative has already connected almost four thousand prayer groups with ICEJ, drawing tens of thousands intercessors to pray for Israel. It is becoming a powerful movement of global intercession for God’s chosen people and land.

 

CELEBRATION

The annual Christian celebration of ICEJ’s Feast of Tabernacles was a tremendous success. More than 100 nations came up to Jerusalem in September to celebrate the Feast. This is a unique opportunity to teach and encourage believers among the nations to align themselves with the nation of Israel and God’s purposes regarding His people.

The Lord opened remarkable doors for the Christian Embassy in 2015, and as we approach 2016 we will dedicate ourselves afresh to prayer and diligently seek God’s wisdom and guidance for the year to come. Stand with us in prayer in the month of January! Pray with our staff for Israel and the city of Jerusalem, but also pray for our ministry in this land as we continue to serve this nation.

The Bible promises us that as we bless Israel, God will bless us in return. May you experience tremendous blessing from the God of Israel as you partner with ICEJ - your Embassy in Jerusalem! Your gift today can make a difference!
