When we arrived in Israel in 1983, a very pretty two-storey apartment with a small garden awaited us. It was owned by an orthodox Rabbi from Canada who saw us "gentiles" as a prophetic sign - that the nations would be coming up to Jerusalem to worship the God of Israel.

My last post was “7 reasons you really need to visit Israel, especially if you’re a pastor and/or Bible teacher." Today’s post is a natural follow-up. It’s for all of you who believe your pastor(s) don’t have enough of a heart for Israel and you want to talk to them about it in the right way.

In the past few months I had the privilege to help launch a new initiative, called “Firstfruits.” The vision is to inspire and equip entrepreneurs in Israel who will use biblical principles, prosper in the marketplace, and be a credible witness.

Ann and I have pastored in Jerusalem for 30 years. We co-founded King of Kings in 1983, and five years later I became the lead pastor, at age 35. You can do the math. If I could live it over again…

Whether black gold or fine gold, to realize its full worth, you have to dig for it. It’s the same way with God’s Word. Sadly, many of us are content to merely read the Bible. Consequently we forfeit the wealth that lies below its surface.

Have you ever met a generous person you didn’t like? Generous people are attractive.Generous souls are relaxed when we are in their home. The generous soul thinks, “what’s yours is mine.” That’s attractive.

You and I have a secret place, and a secret weapon as well. It's right where you are sitting right now. You have a private line to heaven that can't be intercepted.

If you don’t take the time to get alone with God in the solitary place you risk physical and emotional collapse. For some of you, all it would take is just one more light rain, one more committee meeting, one more talk to prepare, one more night-shift at work, to send you sliding treacherously down the mountainside.

We can't really understand Yeshua's profound words and actions at His last supper with his disciples until you understand that He is the Passover Lamb of God. He is the final sacrificial Lamb whose shed blood takes away the sins of the world.

We should continue to let the Holy Spirit make us wholly holy because God has chosen us for a high calling, and holiness is the only way to succeed and fulfill this calling. So all of us are all in ministry. We are all priests. If, as priests, we are called to be people who build a bridge between man and God, then we had better not be a shaky, unstable and unreliable bridge. If people see us as guides to God, then we had better walk straight and not guide people off the path.
