Why all the rage over Jerusalem?

“How often it is a small, almost unconscious event that makes a turning point.” – Corrie ten Boom

"No other city on earth sparks the controversy that Jerusalem does. The fate of the Holy City is discussed, debated, and fought over more than any other. President Obama is pushing a plan to divide Jerusalem and hand much of it—including the holiest places of Christianity—to the Palestinians as the capital of a new state.

The question arises, “Why the rage over Jerusalem?” The answer can only be found in the Word of God. This is a spiritual battle. Satan declared in Isaiah 14:13-14 that he would wage warfare against God Almighty not only from Jerusalem, but from the Temple site. He declared, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”

Jerusalem is the only city which God claims as His own; for that reason it is called the “City of God.” He declares in II Chronicles 33:7, “In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put My Name forever.” David, the psalmist, wrote in Psalm 102:16, “For the Lord will rebuild Zion and appear in His glory.”

In Isaiah 62:1, the prophet cries out, “For Zion's sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.” Isaiah added another amazing prophecy in chapter 2, verse 3: “For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”

I am praying that God will give us 800 Jerusalem Prayer Team members in the next two days to stand with us in honor of the 800 Jewish people that the ten Booms saved from the Holocaust. Your generous gift today will take the story of Corrie ten Boom and her family—and the stories of hundreds of other loving Christians who helped and supported Israel and the Jewish people—to Jerusalem and the nation of Israel through the Christian Zionist Heritage Center.

However, we now must make the first payment to Disk-In Pro on their work as required by the contract. We have received the invoice for $450,000. I am writing today to ask you to be one of those 800 with your gift to help us make the payment so that the work on the Christian Zionist Heritage Center can continue. So far 625 loving hearts have responded to this need by giving $53,535.

Watch Dr. Evans and Glenn Beck Tell The Story Of Corrie Ten Boom

When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you Corrie ten Boom’s book The Hiding Place.
This is the riveting account of how Corrie ten Boom and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people during WW II. For 35 years, millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now, The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God’s love will overcome, heal, and restore.       
If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you this lovely commemorative clock.
Because the ten Booms were watchmakers, even using clock advertisements in their window to send secret messages, this is a great way for you to remember, celebrate, and continue their work. Perfect for your home or office, everyone who sees this beautiful piece will know your love and commitment to God’s Chosen People.       
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"
