- PREPARE THE WAY -
FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2020


“Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” says your God… The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”  (Isaiah 40:1,3)

For 2000 years, the stones of antisemitism blocked the path between Jews and Christians. How do we overcome that?

Forty years ago, a group of Christians from 32 nations gathered in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles just as the last national embassies were abandoning the city. In response, they stepped out and offered a hand of friendship and solidarity to Israel and the Jewish people. From this pivotal moment, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was born.

Today, we continue to follow the path of those Christians who have gone before us. Isaiah spoke of a ministry of comfort and a prophetic work to prepare a highway for the Lord – a work of removing the stones and obstacles that have separated Jews and Christians in the past.

The prophet Isaiah also foretold of a day when a highway would connect Egypt and Assyria with Israel – and become a blessing in the midst of the earth. Today, we are starting to see believers from these nations coming together, and the pages of the Bible are coming to life before our very eyes. The ancient division between Arab and Jew is being reconciled.

“Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; The glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”  (Isaiah 40:4-5)

At the Feast of Tabernacles 2020, the ICEJ will be marking 40 years of comforting and blessing Israel, and of working for reconciliation between the Jewish people and the Gentile nations, and especially the Arab world.

We invite you to come up to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles with us.

Come clear the path; Remove every hindrance between you and an encounter with the God of Israel.

Come celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles …. and what God is doing with Israel and the nations today!

This is your invitation to Prepare the Way.
