Prayer Alert, Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe


Israel Vision Thanks you…                                    
March 2019

You do not have because you do not ask.

Ask and it shall be given to you, 

For everyone who asks receives; 

and he who seeks finds; 

and to him who knocks it shall be opened.

James 4:2  Matthew 7:7,8.

Shalom all who want to make a difference in these dark days:

I asked our eldest son, David, over Shabbat, “Which area is the most dangerous for Israel; militant Iran or Europe with its sweeping radical changes?” In France alone, ISIS has murdered 230 people.  Without hesitation, he responded: “Europe.” I agree and the following information will substantiate this conviction.

Our conversation continued: “David, we’ve been working for aliyah, helping to encourage Jews to come home to Israel for 50 years now. And with all of the Jew-hatred worldwide; this call is even more important than ever!  As a family, we created, films, TV shows, books, and lectures. Together we have told the world of Israel’s historic and prophetic place in ancient and modern history. We have also been vanguards for victims in the war on sexual abuse globally. BUT, nothing has changed! If anything, anti-Semitism and sexual abuse continue to grow. We hear daily about the parabolic rise of anti-Semitism globally linked to hatred of Israel. Sexual abuse has never been more prevalent. And right here in Israel, the issues remain basically unchanged… terror threats, hatred and clever smear champagnes from the Palestinians never seem to change.” We have entered a very dark night.

David agreed and shocked me by saying: “The Holocaust could happen again. The stage is being set. Just think, now with the world GPS systems, we would n’t be able to hide Jews. It’s very serious in spite of the miracle that Israel is an island of democracy and sanity surrounded by the growing sea of madness.

I said. “When I read the books Dad and I wrote 40 years ago… the basic issues are exactly the same. The difference is that today the Judaeo-Christian ethic is under fierce attack by the godless Right and Left in Europe; add to this the continued rise of Fundamentalism Islam in both East and West.

David encouraged me with: “You and Dad have always been prophetic; I want to encourage you to arrange speaking engagements. You need to spend time with the people of Europe.  In every meeting it’s important to have question and answer sessions!”

FACTS:

USA: Minneapolis Minnesota according to the FBI is the top hotbed of terror. 45 Somalis left to join ISIS  and El Shabab over the last 5 years. 12 were arrested trying to join ISIS. Congresswoman Ilan Omar was put into office by this radical Muslim Islamic sentiment. This socialist Democrat detests Israel and says so!

UK: Prime Minister Theresa May addressed anti-semitism within the institution of the British Parliament; which has increased 75% nationwide in one year. ISRAEL is the only nation who has signed a 10 Billion Pound trade deal with a Britain free from the restrictions of the EU to go into effect in April 2019.

REMEMBER: THE UK and the USA have been the greatest global Lighthouses for the Gospel in history! Christian Britains have been fasting and praying holding days of prayer for their nation. We must all pray, speak out, warn all you meet. Invite Jay and I to come to your area to speak out and bring clarity.

Together we were used to changing history in the 1980s and 1990s and we can do it again!

Dance of Kindness

Dance for Kindness
Dancing has a way of breaking down barriers of bitterness and hatred, ignorance and isolation. 120 nations joined together with Jerusalem to “dance for kindness.” For the first time ever Gaza joined in. The common thread that stitched these inspiring dancers from across the globe to come together was the character quality of Kindness.
Jerusalem Vistas was called by Adi, the choreographer, and our daughter in law. “Jay, come we need to film this very special event.” Daniel headed the film crew as she led 500 Israelis of all ages in a dance celebrating… yes KINDNESS! They danced to the song ‘Unity’ created by the Solomon Brother’s and played by their Jerusalem Band. The lyrics go like this…

“There is a shining light in every one of us…
Every person in this world is a diamond in the rough.
One soul, one goal, one love, Unity!
Join us. One forever!

Never again! All anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers must see this film.

We put this awful program on our websites for Holocaust Remembrance Day to address the ignorance of all anti-semites and holocaust deniers. My father, and our grandfather as well as our great grandfather, Victor Alloway Rawlings fought and died for this “hell on earth” to be stopped. Warning this is not suitable to be seen by children!

Jerusalem March 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Annual Feast of Tabernacles, Christian Celebration, in Jerusalem. While watching you will be able to participate in the Jerusalem March along with 6500 visitors from 100 nations. Many waved their flags while wearing their national colors and sounding their national instruments.

You can also witness the “Israeli Guest Evening” when many Holocaust survivors enjoyed the international dancers and local Israeli music. They heard and saw the inspirational reports about the work of the host organization, The International Christian Embassy – Jerusalem. You will be blessed for sure.

Harvest in Mid-July!

We have had great weather in Israel this year. From well-needed rain coming at unexpected times to the glorious sun that we almost always have above us. This not only makes life pleasant, but it causes fruits, vegetables, and all plant life to grow and thrive.
Jay and Meridel have always planted, and planted some more, in their small garden. They utilize the borders around the yard and every little corner that a spade of earth can occupy.

The varieties of things that sprout and grow are amazing. Apart from beautiful flowers and trees, one can find bushes of herbal tea to olives, pomegranates, and clementines~there is always something to find and enjoy.

This week the grapes along the arbor and around the fence are more than ready to be harvested. The birds have already noticed and begun their own picking. Early in the morning, Jay and Meridel pulled out the ladders and clippers to began bringing in the luscious clusters of sweet, beautiful grapes to munch on and make into juice.
Enjoying the fruits of one’s labors is very satisfying. When the “harvest” takes place in the early morning, when the dew is barely dry, the air fresh and cool, it adds to the overall joy of the event. A time of laughter and joy and fellowship!

…Here it is!
The first glass of freshly pressed grape juice!
Pure, Natural Goodness from God’s Own Land!

Dear Friends and Partners

Last week I made some long distance phone calls to our friends and partners in Canada and the USA, HOPING to raise support.  We did have fellowship, I prayed for each one~But~I was shocked and saddened at how many were in a health crisis and in desperate need of prayer for their physical conditions. What is happening to our army of helpers?

Many of our long-term prayer partners were nearly incapacitated. This made me realize two things. First that we must keep up our morning prayer watch for these sickly saints to be made well. Second, we must reach and inspire the younger generation to partner in our faith-based media work.

For forty-nine years, Meridel, myself, our sons and co-workers have done our very best to publish the “Good News” from Zion to a worldwide audience.

Yes, we have regularly changed our format from 16mm film to various video standards to now “digital” materials on the Internet.   We must make these changes to keep current. Thank God we still have the same message.

“TO TELL THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD CONCERNING ISRAEL TODAY.

HELP US TO SHINE THE LIGHT OF BIBLE PROPHECY INTO OUR DARK WORLD.

TO ACHIEVE THIS WE HAVE CREATED THE JERUSALEM VISTAS ONLINE LEARNING CENTRE. 

Our sons are busy creating programming for the younger generation. It’s time! 

Each program will feature GEMS of Biblical truth in the background of the folly of ‘fake news’.  We will separate the facts from the fantasy. You can make it possible for our team to film on location in ISRAEL and GREECE.  These topical, snappy and easy to digest portions are for the internet and social media that aim to educate and inspire!

YOU CAN BE a part of this new venture!  What topics would you like us to highlight? You can help to sponsor us~see below for how you can join. Summer is brutally hot here in the Middle East and the crops could not survive without the dew. Likewise, we need daily, weekly, and monthly “dew” support to keep our studio up and running in this “dry season”.

The budget for this project is $50,000. We have just received a $5,000 gift toward it. Praise God!

Please take a few minutes right now to send your gift and become a JVOLC Sponsor! We Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Together we can move forward!

For out of Zion shall go forth the Teaching (Torah)

and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem…Isaiah 2:3b

Thank You, In His love, Jay and Meridel, and sons

We need your support

Joel 2 begins with the thrilling cry, “Blow the trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm on my Holy mountain.”

The rams horn “shofar” has always been the trumpet sound around which the Jewish people have been called into action, for battle, and for holy work, and worship.

For nearly 50 years now we at Jerusalem Vistas and Israel Vision have been sounding an alarm via the media. We have made hundreds of documentary programs during half of the modern history of Israel. That is quite an achievement, but we could not have done it without the sacrificial financial help of YOU our partners.

Our programs have been designed to be interesting and topical, following current events in the light of Scripture. Our prayer for these programs has always been to awaken and inspire our viewers into action, for the Lord and of course for Israel.

Yes, we are living in prophetic times, the signs are all around us. But we are not called to be mere observers.  We can be a part of what God is doing in the earth today by our prayers, our actions and by our giving.

Here is a brief summary of some of the recent programs that we have broadcast around the globe via the internet.

http://israelvisiontv.blogspot.com/2018/05/jerusalem-vistas-summarythis-is-what-we.html

These shows represent 100’s of man-hours of work. We are glad to do this for you and of course the Lord but we require your help to pay the bills including the salaries of our team.

Over the years we have experienced that summertime is often a downtime forgiving. However, our expenses carry on regardless of the season so I am asking you to make a special sacrificial offering to us TODAY.  Thank you.

May the Lord bless you mightily as you stand with us.

“I will bless them that bless you”…Genesis 12: 1-3

Thanks for helping us to sound an alarm. Prayer and anointed action are needed in this region as never before!

Revisiting Sderot on the Gaza Border

Yes, this is an old film, but, we are re-posting it for a reason. In recent weeks Iran has become even more antagonistic towards Israel. As a result, the ruling elite in the Gaza strip have begun to once again rear their heads with threats to annihilate the state of Israel.
When the IDF went into Gaza in 2009, Jay, David and Daniel drove to Sderot, a small town on the border of Gaza to see what the people were going through. They heard the explosions, spoke to the citizens and toured the spots where rockets had struck. The idea that citizens had “15 Seconds” to find shelter was sobering. How do you even teach young children to run for a bomb shelter??
During this time, Earl Cox, an international broadcaster and journalist was also in Sderot. He was there to support the people. One evening he even purchased pizzas and drinks for the soldiers of the IDF who were on active duty along the border.
Mr. Cox invited David Rawlings and the Mayor of Sderot to Washington. David was able to record the Mayor as he gave his thoughts on the situation in Israel and thanked the American people for their support.
Now, in 2018 as you watch this, please take note~time has indeed passed, but nothing has really changed~Israel’s enemies continue to surround her and threaten the annihilation of the world’s only Jewish State.
