Pastor John Hagee of Christians United For Israel (CUFI) has said that despite some people remaining skeptical about Evangelical support for Israel, the Christian Zionism movement is growing.
"Before CUFI there was nothing to give American Evangelicals a national voice for Israel," Hagee shared with JNS.org.
"Our main and initial objective was to get thousands of leaders to go each year to Washington, D.C. to engage every senator and congressperson as to why we as Evangelicals support Israel." more >>
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was the keynote speaker at the Night to Honor Israel event at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, this past Sunday night, with Senior Pastor John Hagee calling for fresh U.S. sanctions on Iran for its nuclear weapons program.
"If you wonder why this land of ours exists, it exists for liberty, it exists for freedom, it exists for the right of people to exercise their faith. There is only one country on earth that so mirrors that – it is Israel," Huckabee said at the event, which marked the closing of Cornerstone's three-day Feast of Tabernacles celebration.
Huckabee was joined on stage by Hagee, who is also founder and Chairman of Christians United for Israel, and Maya Kadosh, deputy consul General of Israel to the American Southwest, a press release noted. more >>
NEW YORK -- The president of messianic Jewish group Chosen People Ministries has urged Jewish people to accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah at a conference earlier in October exploring recent Middle East events and Biblical prophecy.
"I believe that Jewish people need to consciously accept Jesus as their Messiah in order to have a place in the world to come," Dr. Mitch Glaser said in his address at Calvary Baptist Church.
"The saving faith grows out of a spirit enlightened understanding of the gospel," he continued. "Often times when I speak about a glorious future for Israel and for the Jewish people, some people misunderstand that, and think that you can have that future without the king – you can't. Yeshua is the key to everything." more >>
Hobby Lobby President Steve Green brought his family's huge exhibit of Biblical artifacts to Jerusalem last week, including several portions of the Dead Sea scrolls and other items from the earliest centuries of Christianity.
"It's a bit of a history of the Bible, starting from the Dead Sea scrolls going through the King James version and many of the artifacts show that timeline," Green shared with Fox News on Monday. "With our collection as a whole, we wanted to encourage people to know their Bible better, whether it be here in America or anywhere around the world."
The impressive exhibit, called the Green Collection, features more than 40,000 antiquities including 4,000 Jewish Torahs, rare illuminated manuscripts, early tracts and Bibles belonging to Martin Luther, and the Western Hemisphere's largest collection of cuneiform tablets, an early form of writing. more >>

Also buried with them are their wives, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah. The West Bank site is under siege by both the Muslim and Jewish Communities who are fighting for ownership. The walls around the Tomb were built by King Herod's men.
