Israel needs help

"There is no question that Israel is at war. The Jerusalem Prayer Team is uniquely positioned to help meet the urgent needs of the Jewish people at this crisis moment. Because of our long history of meeting needs in Israel, the people there know we can be trusted and depended on to respond. I need your help today to meet this crisis need.
The terrorist attacks from Gaza, which Israel’s military is desperately trying to stop, are reaching further and further into Israel. Warning sirens sounded in Tel Aviv—forty miles from the Gaza border—as at least two Iranian-made long-range rockets were fired at Israel’s largest city. The escalation has led to the mobilization of Israeli ground forces. Though the government of Israel has tried to avoid direct ground intervention, it may prove to be necessary to halt the increasing violence against Israeli civilians.

At the heart of the problem is the unwillingness of Hamas and other terrorist groups to accept the right of Israel to exist. The Hamas charter calls for the destruction of Israel. This is not some splinter band of radicals taking action against the will of the majority; this is the Palestinian plan for Israel…for the Jewish people to be killed and Israel destroyed.

We must stand against this great evil. My heart breaks at the suffering the people of Israel are enduring. Children can’t go to school, and parents must either leave them alone at home or miss work. There is just 15 seconds warning of an attack on southern Israel—just fifteen seconds to find shelter before the missiles strike. I will never forget talking to one Israeli mother during the last round of increased attacks who told me she never went out with both of her children because she couldn’t be sure of getting them both into a shelter in time. It’s a tragedy.

Together we can show the Jewish people that they are not alone and abandoned in these difficult days. Together we can give them the help and hope they so desperately need. Please when you send your generous gift for the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center today, add a little extra so that we can respond to this crisis.
It is wonderful to know that no matter how difficult circumstances may be today—politically, socially, militarily, emotionally, economically—our God reigns. Our future is bright. I’ve never been more aware of that than today, as we are approaching the next payment on the Jerusalem World Center. You and I will soon be the owners of the largest property in Israel that is privately-owned by a US-based Bible-believing ministry!

This five-story building is not even 500 yards from the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. In days to come, it will be the intercessory center for millions of Christians who will come from every nation on earth to pray 24 hours a day. It will also be home to the first Christian museum in the nation of Israel to tell the story of Christian love, and so much more.

You and I are part of something that has eternal significance in the city on which the spotlight of Heaven shines. Heaven and earth met in Jerusalem, and will meet again. Everything began prophetically and will end in the only city in the world in which God wrote His name.

What a joy it is to focus on things of eternal value and to live our lives in the light of eternity. In Psalm 102:16, it says, “When the Lord shall build up Zion, then shall He appear in His glory.” I just have to think that what you and I are doing in Jerusalem is building up Zion. Isaiah declared, “The Word of the Lord will go from Zion. The law will go out from Zion and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3).

That prophecy will be fulfilled in the Jerusalem World Center as the Word of the Lord goes to all the nations of the earth. Be encouraged today. Will you cast your prophetic vote in favor of God’s purposes with your gift today?
Jerusalem is Ground Zero for spiritual warfare in our world. It is the target of the enemy, and it is vital that you and I do our part to not only pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but to speak out in support of Israel's right to her capital city. One of the most important tools for us to fight and win this battle will be the Jerusalem World Center.

This wonderful facility in the Holy City will be a lasting witness of God’s love to the Jewish people and a center of ministry and outreach to them that will truly be life changing. We have made every payment on the building so far—all praise and glory to God—but we must make another payment of $777,777 this month. Will you be part of this great miracle with your generous gift today to make the Jerusalem World Center a reality?

A dear friend has stepped forward to match your gift in November. In other words, if you give $77,777.77, it will be doubled to $155,555.54. Or if you give $777.77, it will be doubled to $1,555.54. If you give $77.77, it will be doubled to $155.54. This is a huge answer to prayer! Please know that whatever you can give will also be doubled in Heaven in your Kingdom account.

Thus far 865 people have given $81,400. Those gifts will be matched 100% so now we have $162,800. We still need to raise $307,488.50 which will be matched to make $614,977. We have 14 days left. Please pray with me right now for supernatural favor that this need will be met.
When you send your gift of any amount to help us with this need, we will send you this set of “Comfort Ye My People” note cards. They are a great way for you to share your love of God’s Chosen People with others.        
If you are able to send a gift of $30 or more, we will send you the note cards and a copy of my newly-revised and updated book Living Fear Free. In these days of constant threats and troubles, God wants His children to live in perfect peace—and I want to show you how you can know that peace without fear.       
With your gift of $100 or more, we will send you the note cards and this beautiful set of six Scripture placemats. Perfect for framing or for your table, these colorful scenes will be a great reminder to you to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
If you are able to give $1,000 or more, we will send you the note cards, and your name or the name of someone you wish to honor or remember will be added to the Wall of Righteous Gentiles—a lasting legacy and testimony of your love carved into the stone wall of the Jerusalem World Center.
Everyone who enters the building will see your name and give thanks for your generosity and love. God says, “See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me” (Isaiah 49:16).       
Today I’m asking you to stand up and be counted—to join the line of heroes down through the centuries who have done their part to deliver the Jewish people from destruction. I am asking you to make a generous, even sacrificial gift to help make the Jerusalem World Center a reality and to help the Jerusalem Prayer Team to do all we can to defend the Jewish state and the Jewish people around the world.

Barukh ha -mevarekh et ammo Yisrael ba-shalom.
Blessed be He who blesses His people with Peace.
Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans "
