Welcome

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.

Christians for Israel
Prayer Calendar

October - November 2022

 

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

(1 Timothy 2:1-2)

When you receive this prayer calendar it will be a few days after Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), which was celebrated on the 26th – 27th of September. What a privilege to continue in steadfast prayer for God’s people in the new Jewish year. Throughout the years the answers to our prayers have often
been clearly visible: Consider the continuing Aliyah, how Israel has remained standing in the face of her enemies, and the gift of optimism despite persistent terrorism. Another answer to prayer is the growing longing for the Lord God and for the coming of the Messiah. Many feel that this is the core of what it means to live in the land of Israel!


But there are also countless dangers that threaten Israel’s continued existence. Antisemitism is increasing and the constant threat of terrorist attacks from both Hamas and Hezbollah persists, influenced by Iran. Besides these, Israel faces the threat of cyber-terror and the anti-Israel sentiment
and smear-campaign in the United Nations (UN). A less visible danger is the increasing secularization and the desire to be like every other nation, while the Bible clearly says, “You are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to
be His people, His treasured possession.” (Deuteronomy 7:6)


It is as though we are looking at a set of scales. On one side is the fulfillment of hundreds of Biblical prophesies, on the other the precarious existence of the Jewish people and the Jewish state. Which way will the scales lean, towards fulfilling or vanishing? We can hold firm to the knowledge that God will
certainly finish what He has started. You may know the expression, “God doesn’t promise us a peaceful journey, but He does promise a safe arrival.” We see the truth of this expression in Israel’s faith journey.


As intercessors this should not surprise us; after all, we experience the same in our own lives! So let us look for the coming of the Messiah together with them. That is also when the question of whether Jesus is the Messiah will be answered for the Jewish people. As former mayor of Jerusalem
Teddy Kollek said years ago, “When the Messiah comes, the first thing I’m going to ask him is, ‘Have you been here before or is this the first time?’”
