There will be no more extensions. No more second chances. No more delays. If you miss this opportunity, it’s gone forever.
The absolute final deadline for the WND Israel tour is here. With surging interest and unparalleled registrations, it promises to be the most spectacular pilgrimage in WND’s history. But you have to register by Sept. 10 or you are going to be left behind.
Jonathan Cahn, who will join WND founder Joseph Farah on the tour, urged anyone who is still considering joining this sacred journey to take the plunge.
“There is no experience on Earth like going to the Holy Land,” he promised. “It’s so unparalleled that it literally changes lives. God meets His children there in a special way.”
The trip will take place Nov. 10-20, and travelers can get all the details online and by calling Coral Tours toll-free at 1-866-267-2511.
“It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve led tours to Israel, every time is new, every time is different, and every time, God speaks in a different way,” he said.
Guests won’t just tour the Holy Land. Each one will receive in-depth Scriptural teachings from Cahn at the sites where the events in the Bible took place. The messianic rabbi, best known as the author of “The Harbinger,” promises nothing less than an utterly transformative experience.
“It’s one of those rare experiences in life that actually does change one’s life,” he told WND.
WND founder Joseph Farah recalled the hundreds of wildly enthusiastic participants on past Israel tours and similarly vowed, “After this trip, you will never be the same person again.”
Even those who have attended past Israel tours will find something new if they participate in this latest adventure.
“I always seek to make the tour or pilgrimage the most rich, rewarding, powerful, and meaningful possible, and to include things that are almost never done on any tour – as well as things we’ve never done on any tour before,” Cahn said.
“Who can put a price on experiences like sailing on the Sea of Galilee, overlooking the Valley of Armageddon, swimming in the Dead Sea, ascending Masada, going up to and beholding the holy city of Jerusalem, and being baptized in the Jordan River? We’ll be worshiping under the stars in the actual synagogue on which Messiah’s feet walked, taking a safari ride into the wilderness of the Bible, walking through the ancient underground tunnels of the Temple Mount, standing in between the Eastern Gate and the Mount of Olives, worshiping at night in the Garden of Gethsemane, renewing your vows under the Olive Trees of Cana, singing carols under the stars at night over the biblical town of Bethlehem, spending a night in a Bedouin Tent Village under the stars and ushering in the Sabbath on the steps of the Temple of Jerusalem. And that’s only the beginning!”
Attendance is surging and the 2016 WND Israel Tour is all but certain to break every record.
Cahn warned this is the last chance for anyone who wants to participate in what is shaping up to be a truly remarkable adventure.
“The response to the 2016 pilgrimage has been the most overwhelming yet,” he said. “This is something you don’t want to miss. I know it will be especially powerful.”
