Feast Offering

Dear friends,

Starting September 23rd more than 6,000 Christian pilgrims from over 100 nations will gather in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles with us! Many are bringing a special gift for the Lord, as they know the Scriptures say we should not show up in Jerusalem at the appointed feasts “empty-handed” (cf. Deuteronomy 16:16).

For those who were unable to join us in Jerusalem for this year’s Feast, we encourage you to still consider sending a special gift to Jerusalem at Sukkot and thereby express your gratitude to God for another season of His faithfulness towards you.

The Feast of Tabernacles is one of the great harvest feasts of Israel. It celebrates the largest and most precious harvest of the year: grapes, olives, dates, pomegranates and other sustaining fruits and produce. During this time, Israel gathers in Jerusalem to give thanks for another year of God’s faithfulness. Israel also remembers how the Lord provided for them in the Wilderness. Their shoes never wore out and none was sick among them, because God in His goodness met all their needs!
 
As a sign of thankfulness, Israel brought special sacrifices to Jerusalem to express their gratitude. This year again, we look forward to thousands of Christians coming to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles and also to leave something behind – a special offering from their nations to give thanks to the Lord for His goodness.
 
Please join them in faith by sending a special Feast offering to Jerusalem in gratitude for God’s goodness and provision over your life and family. Your gift to the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem will help us give a strong witness of Christ’s love for His own people in the coming year. We have a number of worthy aid projects planned for 2019 and now is the time to sow your seed into the very fertile soil of Israel’s restoration.

Many blessings from Jerusalem, 
 

Jürgen Bühler, ICEJ President
