TJCII Israel

"Return to me, and I will return to you, says Adonai-Tzva'ot."

OH, ISRA’EL!

Christianity is bound up with Israel (The Holy Land), like the history of Israel is bound up with Christianity. It is a bond that dates back to the birth of Christ.

HOLY LAND

Jerusalem is the home of the Golgotha, the historic site of Christ’s crucifixion, the site of Christ’s death and the place where He is said to be buried.

Israel stirs our hearts – uniting Jews and Gentiles.  Every lover of the Bible and the G-d of Israel identifies with the Father’s love for this land and people.

Throughout TJCII’s 18-year history, the Executive Board has been meeting in various parts of Israel once a year or more.  Always desiring to be attentive to the direction of Adonai, several years ago, the TJCII Intercessors and Executives jointly acknowledged G-d’s timing for moving into Jerusalem on a permanent basis.

While continuing to pray and work out the practical aspects of our structure internationally, the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) has guided us to focus our attention on ascending (aliyah) to Jerusalem.

Then, in 2011, the Ruach HaKodesh emphasized that the next year would be a year of change – a paradigm shift.  So, for the first time in October 2012, the TJCII executive committee held its meetings in Jerusalem. We began our time together at Kiriath Jearim (outside of Jerusalem), where we had met from 2009 to 2011.  This is the place from which David brought the ark up to Jerusalem. There, in the garden of the conference center, theTJCII Executives and Intercessors began with prayer.  This was very significant!  At this very place, in 1998, TJCII Executives Benjamin Berger and Father Peter Hocken anointed the stones which were laid during a prayer and fasting week which they had helped to lead. That meeting in 1998 prepared the way for moving into Jerusalem in 2012.

From Kiriath Jearim, we traveled to Jerusalem and to Christ Church. 

There Canon Brian Cox surprised us all by presenting a key to the church as a symbol of restoring and honoring our Jewish brothers to the place of authority in Jerusalem, the City of the great King.  We understood that the Almighty was urging us to progress in the work begun in 1841 when the Anglicans established Christ Church as a prophetic sign of God’s purposes for the Jewish people, and installed Michael Solomon Alexander (a Messianic Jew) as the first bishop.

Leaving Christ Church, we went to pray on the steps south of the Temple Mount.  All of the Executives went forward together to pray at the Kotel, the Western Wall, leaving their jointly written prayer in a crevice in the wall. This was not just a change of meeting place, but a decisive forward move in the TJCII vision.  TJCII is no longer just “Toward Jerusalem,” but TJCII is now in Jerusalem!
