Christians for Israel is a non-denominational movement. We believe that Christians of all denominations and backgrounds should be united in their love for the Jewish people, in their support for Israel and in their collective repentance because of Jewish suffering throughout Church history.
Our mission is to bring Biblical understanding in the Church and among the nations concerning God's purposes for Israel and to promote comfort of Israel through prayer and action.
Our vision is to establish a global network of Christians having local impact, for the blessing of the nation of Israel, the Jewish people and the church.
Our strategy is to equip Christians in the nations to understand God’s purposes with the Jewish people and the nation of Israel, and to stand in the gap between Israel and the Church.
For the next two months, you will find a section from the Haftara Reading on Saturdays/Sabbaths. This reading is the concluding reading during the Sabbath service after first reading from the Torah. Usually, this reading comes from the Prophets. It is not yet fully understood what led to the creation of the Haftara Reading. One theory is that the Haftara Reading originated when the Greek ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes banned Jews from reading from the Torah on the Sabbath in the second century BC. The rabbis then looked for a way out and devised to read a portion from the Prophets which matched the topic of that week’s Torah reading. Fortunately, the situation is different now and Jews in Israel have been living in a country where they are allowed to learn freely from the Torah.
Over the next two months, you will find points of thanksgiving for God’s great faithfulness to His people. We’ll continue to pray for God’s protection against all external threats.
