Jerusalem World Center project-update

“Look to Jesus and be at rest”  Update by Mike Evans

"We live in the “Me Generation,” where secular humanists, even in the pulpit, have fanned the flames of narcissism, hedonism, and self-gratification. The United States has never had so much stuff and been so unhappy. Millions are looking within for happiness, but the only problem is that doesn’t work. You were not self-created; you can’t tell yourself the purpose for which you were created. There is great truth in the words: “Look around and be distressed; look within and be depressed; look to Jesus and be at rest.”
Victor Frankl, a Jewish neurologist/psychiatrist, was given the opportunity to leave Nazi Germany for the United States. He chose to stay because of the commandment of the Bible, “Honor your father and mother.” In the concentration camp, most of his family perished, but Frankl survived. In his book, A Search for Meaning, honored by the Library of Congress, he states: “If man knows the why of his existence, he can bear almost any how.” Corrie ten Boom found that to be true in her life while she was also imprisoned by the Nazis.

A Gallup Poll revealed that 40 percent of Americans do not think their lives have a clear sense of purpose or are neutral about the question. Frankl’s study revealed that living a meaningful life corresponds with being a giver, not a taker, and that happiness without meaning is characterized by a relatively shallow self-absorbed, even selfish life.

My book, Living in the F.O.G., was written to help Christians see this truth clearly. Living in the F.O.G. (Favor of God), is not about what you can get from God, but what you can give to God: “You, God, created absolutely everything…and it is for Your pleasure that they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11, NLT).

I believe that God brought us together “for such a time as this”—to give our time and energy and effort and resources to stand for and defend Israel and the Jewish people. One of the greatest and most important things that the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center makes possible is the Christian Zionist Heritage Center. The story of Christian love is a story that most Jewish people have never heard. We must tell the story—but we can’t do it without you. I urgently need your help today.

God has opened an amazing door of outreach for us. After months of research, interviews, prayers, and seeking His direction, we signed a contract with Disk-In Pro, a leading Israeli hi-tech company, for the Christian Zionist Heritage Center. Disk-In Pro has done some of the most advanced and cutting-edge interactive displays and museums in the world, and we are working with them to bring the stories of Christian love to life for generations of Jewish people. God is going to use our partnership to share the message of Christian love with so many of His Chosen People.

We have just received the invoice as specified in the contract for the first payment of $450,000. Our income this month is down more than fifty percent. We know that people care—but there is a sense that we have completed our work, and the task is done. But while we won a great victory with the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center, our work is far from done. We must continue to go forward. For the next twenty days, I am on a Daniel fast for this breakthrough. If you are led to join me for a day or a meal I would be grateful. And I am writing today to ask for your help in making this payment so that the work on the Christian Zionist Heritage Center can continue.

When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you a copy of my brand new book Living in the F.O.G.
I wrote this book to share the keys of receiving a miraculous measure of God’s favor and blessing. If you learn these principles and put them into practice, it will transform your life! If you are able to send a gift of $80 or more, we will send you an autographed hardback copy.       
If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you this beautiful “For such a time as this” chenille throw.
This lovely piece features the text of Esther 4:14 and is a wonderful way to share your love and support of Israel and the Jewish people with everyone who sees it.       
We are excited about what will be accomplished through the Christian Zionist Heritage Center, but in order for it become a reality, we must quickly raise the funds so that the programming and design work can be done, and we can begin telling these wonderful stories. Please be as generous as you can when you send your gift today.

Your gift of support for the Jerusalem Prayer Team as we stand with and for Israel and the Jewish people is your personal act of love and kindness to bless God’s Chosen People. Your gift today makes it possible for this great worldwide prayer movement to continue at this crucial and prophetic moment in history.

Modeh ani l’faneykha, melekh chai vekayam; rabbah emunatekha.

I thank you, living and eternal King; great is your faithfulness.
Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans"
