An expression of gratitude from my dear friend Prime Minister Netanyahu

I have been friends with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu for more than thirty years. He fully understands the importance of Christian support for Israel and the Jewish people. Many times he has told me how much he appreciates your prayers for him and for his nation. Here is how he summed up the importance of Christian friends to his nation:

“I don’t believe that the Jewish State and Modern Zionism would have been possible without Christian Zionism. I think that the many Christian supporters of the rebirth of the Jewish State and the ingathering of the Jewish people in the 19th century made possible the rise of Jewish Zionism–modern Jewish Zionism. We always had the deeply ingrained desire to come back to our land and rebuild it. This is a prayer of the millennia of the Jewish people…and the many Christian friends that we had…created the practical foundation, the political foundation for the emergence of Zionism.”

The sad reality, though, is that many Jewish people have never heard this part of the story. Today those of us who love God and the Jewish people have the opportunity once again to do something special as we stand together for the survival of Israel.

The Jerusalem Prayer Team has made our support of Israel and the Holy City plain by building and opening the wonderful Friends of Zion Museum just 600 meters from the Temple Mount. Every day we are telling the true story of Christian love for the Jewish people to hundreds of visitors from all around the world.

How Is Your Angel Doing Today?

By Dr. Mike Evans

A number of years ago on my birthday, a terrorist attempted to kill me. I am certain that had the angels of the Lord not protected me, he would have succeeded. He had already killed two people—a state trooper and a Jewish pawn shop owner. When I was informed of his arrest, a spirit of fear hit me. When he was finally caught, he had my address and my unlisted phone number on the front seat of his car.
