I first saw the incredible work God is doing in the mountains of Israel in the summer of 2018.

In Israel, mountainside vineyards surrounding Shiloh drip with sweet wine. Israel is filled with breathtaking beauty, and is springing back to life after millennia spent in mourning! Miraculously, God continues to gather the diaspora of the children of Israel from the farthest corners of the earth—just as He promised! (See especially Deuteronomy 30 and the surrounding chapters). But why should Christians worldwide care about all this?

In his phenomenal book Reforesting Faith, Matthew Sleeth keenly observes:

God is close at hand in the fields and woods. Unfortunately, when I was a kid, no one told me so. The theological move to disconnect God from the natural world was well underway by the time I was born.

Sleeth goes on to note God’s special protections for fruit trees during sieges as evidence for God’s care for the natural world. Deuteronomy commands “do not cut them down,” and then continues, almost sarcastically, “are the trees of the field people, that you should besiege them?” (Deuteronomy 20.19).

I believe God cares deeply for everything He creates. When one encounters the beauty of God’s creation, one encounters Him, in just the same way one encounters Van Gogh in Van Gogh’s artworks. If this is true everywhere, how much more so is it true in Israel, the Land God loves? Indeed, God tells the Israelites:

The land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. It is a land the LORD your God cares for; the eyes of the LORD your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end. (Deuteronomy 11.11,12)

The heavens declare the glory of God, the sky proclaims His handiwork. Day to day makes utterance, night to night speaks out. There is no utterance, there are no words, whose sound goes unheard. Their voice carries throughout the earth, their words to the ends of the world. (Psalm 19.1-5)

If this is true of everything, how much more so is it true of Israel, the Land God promises to Abraham and his seed (Genesis 12)? Today, God is re-creating Israel according to and by His Word, and the evidence of this is felt and known throughout the world. As Christians we know that:

Just as no-one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case. The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say “and to seeds”, meaning many people, but “and to your seed”, meaning one person, who is Christ. (Galatians 3.15,16)

The re-creation and restoration of Israel happening today shows God’s amazing faithfulness to His promises!

God has gifted me with a love for the Jewish people and His land of Israel. Part of God’s mission for me is that I bless and serve the Jewish people, especially in the land of Israel. I hope and strive to accomplish this through acts of service and by lovingly and actively listening to the Jewish people and engaging in dialogues that promote God’s peace. Today, God has called me to go to Israel, and serve HaYovel as the Executive Director’s Administrative Assistant to awaken hearts throughout the world to Christian Zionism on a God-sized scale, and promote meaningful discussion and dialogue about what (and even where!) God has made good and beautiful, and why.

I pray to God that with the help of your financial support I can serve with HaYovel, assisting in the ongoing, prophetic work of lovingly serving the Jewish people in Israel and also the work of reaching out to the Church and spreading the good news (the gospel) of how much God loves Israel: His Land and His People.

Will you prayerfully consider investing monthly in me and my ministry?
