WASHINGTON – The window of opportunity to join hundreds of others on the 2016 WND Israel tour, described as a “supertour” because of the amazing features it includes, is closing quickly.
The deadline that originally was announced is past, but the extension of time to join what “The Harbinger Man” Jonathan Cahn describes as a life-changing trip is coming soon.
Cahn, bestselling author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” has a special message for any believers yearning to see the Holy Land: Now is the time.
The messianic rabbi personally will lead the 2016 Israel Tour alongside WND founder Joseph Farah and promises a “wonderful, incredible and life-changing experience.”
Cahn says the WND Israel Tour won’t simply be a sightseeing excursion but a spiritual pilgrimage, as he’ll be teaching every day of the tour.
Cahn is best known as the author of “The Harbinger,” which stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years. He’s also the inspiration for two films, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” and “The Harbinger Man.”
Many of Cahn’s most important and remarkable teachings are also available in a special video series created in partnership with WND Films.
But nothing can compare to receiving first-hand teachings by the rabbi himself while at the places where the Bible events took place.
“You’re not just going to see the land, you’re going to be getting the Word and the Word is going to be the place,” promised Cahn. “It will be the living, breathing Word of God. The Word of God is going to be alive for you as never before. And when you come back, you will be changed.
“You’ll not only be hearing the Bible but seeing it all around you.”
This unique guided tour of the Holy Land will take place Nov. 10-20. The details are available online at WNDIsraelTour.com or by calling Coral Tours toll-free at 1-866-267-2511.
Cahn urged all believers not to miss this opportunity.
“If you are born again, this is your land,” he said. “The land of Israel, the land of the Bible, the land of salvation, the land of the prophets, the kings, the apostles, David, Elijah, Paul, Peter, where Messiah Himself was born and lived and died and rose. Where God walked the Earth. Where we were saved.”
Of course, there are plenty of other companies and organizations providing tours of Israel. But the 2016 WND Israel Tour is something completely different. Besides the in-depth spiritual instruction from one of America’s leading biblical teachers, the itinerary includes activities you simply won’t find anywhere else.
“I seek to always make it the most incredible experience that you could ever have,” Cahn explained. “We always seek to do things that are generally not done in other tours. Things that will really touch you and change your life.”
These include activities such as sailing on the Sea of Galilee, standing on the mountain ridge overlooking the Holy City, being baptized in the Jordan River, renewing your vows to your spouse or to our Lord under the Olive Trees of Cana, swimming in the Dead Sea, planting a tree in the soil of the Holy Land and having Communion at the Garden Tomb.
Even those who have been on the WND Israel Tour will find something new.
“We’ll be doing things we’ve never done before!” said Cahn. “We’ll be going to the ancient city of Sepphoris they believe that Joseph and Jesus may have helped in building, Gedara where Messiah healed the demoniac, Samson’s city, Mount Gilboah where Saul and Jonathan fought the Philistines, and more.”
Cahn pleaded with believers not to wait, as reservations and openings may be limited.
“Don’t miss this!” he said. “Reserve your seats and bring your loved ones and friends. And see you in the Holy Land!”
