“Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”
Isaiah 66:8 KJV
Out of the ashes of the Holocaust Incinerators rose the State Of Israel under impossible odds, but God ordained and undergirded. It had to come to pass…A Nation Born In A Day!
Longstanding Israeli residents in Palestine from the 1850’s & beyond, Settlers from the Baron De Rothschild’s Days, along with Holocaust Survivors came together to declare their Independence, May 14, 1948!
Recently, the prophetic event was celebrated on April 18th, 2018 as Israel’s 70th Anniversary fell on that date according to the Jewish Hebraic Calendar (360 Days), 18 Iyar 5778.
Special ceremonies were held across the globe and will continue thruout the whole year. We plan to attend several of these special events while in Israel Nov 12-21, 2018 Hosting an MJR HolyLand Tour.
In Chicago, MJR represented the UPCI MultiCultural Ministries and our churches-at-large at a closed Gala Event hosted by the Israeli Government at the “Standard Club” attended by 700 Invitees.
While continuing our strong relationship with the Israel Ministry Of Tourism. We also were special guests of the Midwest USA Israel Consul General, Aviv Ezra (Former Israel US Congressional Lobbyist).
Attending (Pictured Below), were Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, Former IL Senator Mark Kirk and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. (Also, Chief Rabbi Michael Siegel, Jewish United Fund Leaders Mark & Susan Sachs, IMOT Dir Jill Daly And Many More Luminaries.)
We discussed the UPCI’S support that was secured on our IMOT/UPCI MJR Israel Tour in May, 2014 where we stood with Israel’s “Right To Exist”, “Right To The Land”, “Right To Defend Itself” and “Right To The Biblical Prophetic Fulfillment’s” God has in store for them.
Somber April 17th HaZikaron Ceremonies commemorating those killed in the Holocaust, victims of Acts of Terrorism and the establishing & defending of the State Of Israel. Reminders of Antisemitic madness.
Then, The Celebrations Of HaAtzmaut began with the “5 L’s” that I have coined: 1)Live, Don’t Die 2)Love, Don’t Hate 3) Laugh, Don’t Cry 4) Learn, Don’t Repeat & 5)Look, For Messiah!
April 18, 2018 will forever live in our memory as 70 is a special birthday for anyone, let alone a nation. But, IL Gov Rauner said it so well in his speech reminiscing on his trip to Auchwitz, Poland…”Never Again!”
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”
Psalms 122:6 KJV
Yom Huledet Yisrael… Happy Birthday Israel!
