Christmas Worship Celebration from HomeJTK
This past Saturday we had a very special Shabbat church service at Home of Jesus the King Church. We lifted up Jesus as the Reason for the Season with a festive and joyful Christmas Worship Celebration! Our church members showed up in droves and the unity of the Spirit was so evident. The Lord was present and we felt His overwhelming love and peace flood our hearts.
We worshipped with traditional Arabic Christmas songs in true Arabic fashion, with enthusiasm, dancing, and shouts of praise! The non-believers whom our church members invited gladly joined in with the celebration and many hearts were touched that day.
We also had the privilege to host a very dear friend of ours from the Netherlands, Pastor Jan Barends and his wife, who is the co-founder of CGI Holland, a ministry geared towards blessing the nation of Israeli churches, both Arab and Jew alike.
He preached a powerful sermon that was very apt for the festive season and our church members were blessed and changed by his moving words. Having Pastor Jan there is also a testimony that God is awakening the plight of the nation of Israel among the nations of the world.
More and more international ministers and churches are getting involved with Israel to bless Arab and Jewish churches, and to sow into the Kingdom of God with their support, advocacy, prayers and visits.
I believe that very soon we will be able to once again receive groups from the nations freely here in Israel, and I look forward to seeing you and your church group here with us in Nazareth. Our doors are always open!
