Remembrance of key events in the modern history of Israel is a powerful way to preserve their significance. The “Exodus 1947” ship arrived in Palestine in July 1947 with 4500 hopeful new immigrants only to be intercepted by the British Navy. Most were turned back to Germany. It was a tragic event that added strength to the longing for and creation of the new State of Israel on May 14th 1948. This event was remembered by the unveiling of a bronze memorial to the ‘Exodus 47″‘ immigrant ship in Haifa harbour 70 year later. This touching event was attended by survivors of the ship now in their late 70’s to early 90’s.
Israel today, in spite of continual attacks, war, terror and prejudice is a miracle of survival. Israel has not only survived for seven decades and overcome great obstacles, it is now one of the most fertile countries on earth. Israeli innovations, especially in medicine and agriculture have impacted the quality of life for a huge part of humanity. “Made in Israel” traces how Israeli inventors have become world leaders in start up companies. Now Israel is becoming known as the “Scale Up” country as more an more innovations are birthed, nurtured and blossomed via Israeli companies. PS, We are close friends with Chris Mitchell, CBN bureau chief here in Jerusalem and he has authorized us to run this movie. Over the years he has used excerpts of our productions for their 700 Club TV show that is broadcast world wide.
Israel is a land wealthy in the artifacts of antiquity, giving historical proof that Jews have always dwelt here for millenia. One of the ongoing wars at present is the loss of ancient treasures, stolen and sold to antique dealers around the world.
The modern nation of Israel has deep Biblical and historical roots in ancient Israel. One never knows when or where the next amazing archaeological discovery will be.
Archaeologists in Israel have uncovered a Roman amphitheater in Hippos. This ancient city has been unearthed on the salt route to Damascus. It was on this road when Pau, the persecuto, was blinded by a heavenly light that caused him to fall off of his horse. Being the religious Jew that he was, he used an achronym for the unpronouncable name of God, always spelling with capitals. Wonderingly Paul inquired:
“Who are you LORD?”
The answer came back… “I am Jesus!”
He was stunned! That was the beginning of his transformation.
The rest is history.
With so many prophets proclaiming the coming war in Israel, I am exercised. I MUST take this opportunity to bring a word of encouragement. Trust in the written word of God, it cannot fail. Let us dig a little deeper for a fuller picture that eclipses all of the doom and gloom.
Here are my thoughts on possibly an even wider conflict than the miserable Syrian war according to Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.
Now with President elect Trump coming into office on January 20th 2017, he will surely have to address the situation in Syria.
Putin has a “hook in his jaw” just as it is written by Ezekiel. He just cannot stay out of the Middle East, whether he is wanted or not!
His wicked plans and shrewd manuevers are unfolding like a chess game. He is a very strong adversary working all over the earth.
There has to be a confrontation IF, he, President elect Trump will make good on his campaign promise to “destroy ISIS swiftly in Syria and Iraq. World opinion due to the tragic situation in Aleppo will mitigate this. Meanwhile militarily, Putin has propped up the Assad regime along with Iran’s backing, known in history as Persia. These countries are on a collision course with the West.
Iran and Russian harbor hatred towards Israel, see Ezekiel 38. “Gog comes down to take a plunder and a booty or spoil” (perhaps huge natural gas reserves in Israel). Ezekiel 39:3 is very clear. It says, God Himself will “knock the bow (missiles) out of Gog’s hand” by incredibly powerful natural forces. Could this be the armies from the north, including Russian & Iranian men and missile? Lebanon and Syria will be neutralized, Israel will live! Am Israel Hai!
Putin is the major threat at the moment. Also, PRAY for President elect Trump to resist any aggressive moves in Cuba. Remember the Soviet’s 1960 attempt to plant Nuclear weapons 90 kilometers from America in Cuba’s Bay of Pigs? This previous strategy cannot be repeated. It is high time for Biblical principles to be employed by the White House such as …“resist the enemy and he will flee from you.” I believe the LORD God of Israel is looking into the affairs of the nations to bring glory to HIS Name!
Our work is to BELIEVE God’s Word. We all must lay aside our criticisms and jugements and PRAY for President elect Trump. This man is richer than all 44 preceding US Presidents combined, yet he has chosen to take a salary of US $1.00 and give his Presidential salary to charity. He has placed more Christian advisors around him that ever before in American history. PRAY that these anointed men and women give him the divine strategies found in the Eternal Word of God. Let us look up and not faint. We are standing on the edge of the greatest revolution our world has ever seen. Let God be God and all men liars!

I know and am a witness, says the LORD. Jeremiah 29:23
Kay Wilson is also a witness. Giving testimony at a Stand With Us event in Sussex England, she relives her experience with Palestinian terror. Please do not say, “Oh not again enough!”
This is an unforgettable account of innocence lost as she witnessed the murder of a Christian friend right in front of her. Yet she survived against all odds. I want all who watch this to understand, that NOTHING has changed. I pray her voice will be heard or she just crying in the wilderness?
For newcomers, here is a little back ground. The Palestinian Authority has not changed its agenda since it started in 1964. PA President Mahmood Abbas, 81, a Holocaust denier, inherited a tradition of tyranny. His predecessor, Yasser Arafat, was also President of the PA for life. Nothing has changed. There are no free elections in the Palestinian Authority. In 2005 I, Meridel Rawlings, did extensive research on abuse in the PA. Living in Jerusalem, I consulted with Israelis, Palestinians and Christian Arabs. Professor Moshe Sharon of the Hebrew University was my advisor. My masters thesis was entitled: Abuse of Children in the PA. Nothing has changed. Everyday children in the PA are taught on TV, radio and the Internet to hate Israeli’s and to kill them! This is called incitement and Abbas does nothing to stop it.
Speak up! You can make a difference.
