Dr. Jeff Johnson: Three Palestinians Killed, 'Over 300 Wounded" in East Jerusalem and more - Israel Today Ministries
Three Palestinians Killed, ‘Over 300 Wounded” in East Jerusalem, West Bank - Haaretz.com, July 21, 2017
Riots in the streets, and on the Temple Mount. Protests in Jordan against Israel, Hezbollah (Lebanon) moving military equipment towards their southern border preparing for the next war, and Hamas (Gaza) ramping up rhetoric with threats against Israel. The Old City has been closed, and only Muslim men over 50 and women are allowed to come for prayers, and metal detectors have been placed on the Temple Mount
Once again, a wave of anti-Semitic hatred crashes throughout the Land. We were in Israel during the war with Hezbollah in 2006, and then during the war with Hamas in 2012. Often, we arrive providing food right after the bombings and rockets fall, or at times, right before these things happen. We are going back again in a couple of days. Your donations have empowered us to provide food for 250 children for approximately 2 months as summer ends and autumn begins. We go to Israel 2 – 4 times each year, spending 2 weeks, up to 2 months at a time there. And, throughout the years your partnership has afforded us to provide over 140,000 meals for children, Holocaust survivors, and families – Thank you!
As hatred for the Jew grows in this fallen world, and as a growing number of churches embraces the dastardly teaching of Replacement Theology*, let us stand tall and be counted amongst those who love, support, and believe in the Abrahamic Covenant*.
Thank you for your prayers as we travel to the Holy Land once again, and bless God’s ancient people. We leave this weekend and will return in a few weeks.
May God, bless you in profound ways as you bless God’s ancient people through Israel Today Ministries!
Shalom, Until He comes, we are Together Under His Wings,
* Replacement Theology teaches that the Church is the “New Israel”, and that all the blessings and promises of the Abrahamic Covenant now belongs to the Church, and not to Israel.
* Abrahamic Covenant can be found in Genesis 12:1-3; 12:7; 13:14-17; 15:1-21; 17:1-21 and 22:15-18. It is a Covenant between God and Abraham where God promises to bless Abraham, and that through Abraham’s seed all the nations will be blessed, namely, because of Messiah. Also, God promised Abraham land for his descendants. God ratified the covenant with Abraham. God never changes His mind; therefore, the Abrahamic Covenant is eternal. It depends on God fulfilling His part, and not on Abraham’s part. It is between God and Abraham – not the Church.
