ISRAEL

Shalom – Manishma? Tov? – Todah.
 
I am trying to put in words of what I have experienced in Israel. There are no words to describe of what I’ve seen and what I’ve experienced. Till this day, I am still in shock that I had the opportunity to walk where the God of Israel – Yeshua (Jesus) walked! I am forever humbled by this trip.
 
Prior to the trip, the team met and were able to pray together. Many from the group had great expectations from the LORD and had reasons to go. As for me, I cannot say that I had a great revelation that the LORD told me to go. I did not have any expectations, but I did go with an open heart and allow the Lord to work in me.
 
The LORD Yeshua LOVES his people – Israel – He longs and yearns for them. God had shared his heart concerning Israel – his most beloved – the LORD was able to open my heart to Israel, its people, to the Jewish, and to the Arabs/Muslims in a way that me being a follower of Yeshua (Jesus)- my heart and love have changed for his greater purpose for his people and for his will to come forth.
 
I have encouraged many to go to the Land of Israel and join SOM (possibly) for a greater understanding of the purpose of His WORD. 
 
We have visited many places were Yeshua walked.
 
We went to the Sea of Galilee, Mt. of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Nof Ginnosar, Boat Museum, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Prayer overlooking Lebanese and Syrian borders, Golan Heights, Israel Museum, Abraham’s Ridge, Temple Mount, Shrine, Western Wall, Southern Steps, VaShem Holocaust Museum, Judean Desert, Masada, Ein Gedi, Qumran, Swimming in Dead Sea, Garden of Gethsemane, Bethesda, St. Annes, Garden Tomb. We had tour guides sharing us the aspect of history and also its biblical importance.
 
And when we weren’t touring, we had an intensive teaching on the nation of Israel, Prophecies being fulfilled, Prophecies, and many other interesting topics that will literally open your eyes in a deeper way. My heart was opened to the things of the Bible and to the things that were written in a clearer way! So many moments that were an eye opener, revelation of the living Word that was written in the Bible! What an honor and priviledge it is to believe in Yeshua (Jesus) during this time. He is more REAL than ever now!
 
I can’t possibly write down what I have learned in the teachings. There were so much that I am still processing the things that were shared! I can’t express of what I have learned but what I can possibly bless others is to share the CD that were recorded. A lot of teachings that were shared outside the recording session were also remarkable! Maybe, I can be able to share one on one if you’re interested in hearing in some! 🙂
 
Surprisingly, many from our group had felt the same way that while we were in Haifa, Israel – it reminded each one of us of the places we all visited or have seen – for example, for some, Haifa reminded them of Southern California, etc.. and for me, it reminded me parts of Malaysia, Philippines and the US – It was interesting how Israel literally had all kinds of trees, flowers – I felt like it represented the nations in one land (Israel!)
 
I just wanted to share some in pictures of where we had went. As a group, we had prayed, laughed, ate, and wept together while we were in Israel! It was an incredible experience ever. I would LOVE to go back to ISRAEL again! May the Lord of Israel bless you!
