There are many excuses not to go to Israel:
- It costs money – true, but not as much as you think.
- It will be there forever – true, though there are plenty of people in the world who are trying to disprove that.
- It’s dangerous over there – not true. It’s safer than Washington, D.C., and many other cities in America.
But here’s one good reason you must go to Israel now: God’s calling you there.
“Israel is the one and only living miracle of a nation,” says WND founder Joseph Farah, who leads some of the largest, most spectacular annual excursions to the Jewish state. “Could your faith need some strengthening? No one leaves Israel with less faith, always more. There’s something about seeing where the Bible all took place, walking in the steps of the prophets and the King of Kings.”
Farah gives as an example a recent archaeological find in Israel.
Nearly 3,000 years ago, Israel’s King Hezekiah was about to be attacked by King Sennacherib of Assyria. You can read about it in 2 Kings 18-20. Hezekiah was a good king. He loved God, rid his nation of idols and tried to lead Israel back to the Lord. On the other hand, Sennacherib was a wicked king who invaded Israel with 185,000 soldiers with the notion of taking Jerusalem.
To prepare for the Assyrian attack, Hezekiah dug a tunnel under Jerusalem to ensure a water supply into the city during the inevitable siege. The tunnel was carved through solid rock, the Bible says. When the invaders arrived, Hezekiah asked God for deliverance from the Assyrian hordes. He consulted with the prophet Isaiah who informed him an angel of the Lord would wipe out Sennacherib’s army. That’s what happened. The corpses littered Israel and Sennacherib went home where was killed by two of his own sons, never to bother Jerusalem again.
That tunnel, built by Hezekiah, was found recently in the City of David – once again, proving the Bible is not just a collection of ancient myths.
You can see it for yourself.
Does that take your breath away?
There are a million more sites like it you should see in Israel – because seeing is believing. You should take people you love to Israel – your spouse, your children, your dearest friends, if you can persuade them.
You should do it this year – with Joseph Farah, an Arab-American hero in Israel and a former Middle East correspondent, along with Joel Richardson, an expert on the region and the Bible scholar who shook the eschatological world with his New York Times bestselling “The Islamic Antichrist,” and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Richie Furay as the worship leader.
Do you need any more reasons?
Here’s one more – the title of Richardson’s newest book. Someday, maybe very soon, a Jew will rule the world from Jerusalem. His name is Jesus, or Yeshua in Hebrew. Don’t you think you owe it to Him to visit Jerusalem before He does, again? Don’t you want to understand the roots of your faith?
That’s what this year’s WND Israel tour has to offer.
- Joseph Farah is a former Middle East correspondent who later ran daily newspapers in major U.S. markets before launching the first independent Internet news service. He also studied prophecy at the feet of Hal Lindsey, collaborating with him on six books over 10 years. He also collaborated with Rush Limbaugh on his No. 1 bestseller “See, I Told You So.” He was dubbed “The Arabian Knight” by a U.S. Jewish magazine for his historical and biblical defense of Israel. In 2013 and 2014, he led two of the biggest U.S. tours of Israel with messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”
- Joel Richardson is the New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist,” “Mideast Beast” and his latest, “When a Jew Rules the World.” In his latest movie, “End Times Eyewitness,” Richardson went on location through the Middle East and Turkey to show prophecy unfolding, interviewing persecuted Christians, Jewish leaders who seek to rebuild the Temple and Muslim scholars who reveal their own end times eschatological expectations.
- Richie Furay is senior pastor of a Calvary Chapel Church in Colorado and known internationally as a member of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame for his groundbreaking music career with Buffalo Springfield, Poco and Souther, Hillman and Furay.
The tour will combine visits to the most well-known and popular sites in Israel with music, prayer, celebration and lots of interaction with Israeli guides and tour leaders.
“Prepare for one of the most exciting experiences of your life if you come to Israel with us,” said Farah. “That’s what we hear over and over again after these Israel tours. It’s a life-changing event whether it’s your first trip to Israel or your 20th. These excursions are simply unforgettable. I am so excited about the opportunity to tour with Richie Furay and Joel Richardson – both so gifted and so devoted to Yeshua-Jesus.”
