Rivlin highlights Day 2 of #ICEJFeast2015
Tuesday evening the ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles celebration at the Pais Arena in Jerusalem was addressed by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin who quoted the prophesy of Zechariah recalling the great return of the Jews to the land of Israel to worship the Lord together with the nations.
“Just imagine, my good friends,” Rivlin said. “Imagine how hard life was in Judah two thousand and five hundred years ago. Imagine how hard it was to rebuild Jerusalem and how it would echo far into the future! Imagine how difficult it would have been back then to appreciate the glory, the magnificence, the significance of the return to Zion! Friends, the return to Zion would be not a redemption of the Jewish people alone, but should give hope to all mankind. Indeed, it would change the world.”
“Dear friends,” he continued. “Thank you. Thank you for coming up from year to year, to worship the King, the God of Hosts. To celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. Thank you for standing with us! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they that [do], be blessed!”
The President’s speech was followed by the address from Josh Reinstein, Director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, who reminded the audience of prayers of the Jewish nation for fulfillment of a prophecy.
“They prayed, they had faith, they believed that one day there would be a prophesy that would be fulfilled,” shared Reinstein. “A prophesy that promised a better life for their children, that promised a future. That promise was the rebuilding of Jerusalem, and the time when the nations would come once again to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles. That time is today! Let me say, welcome home. As someone who is Jewish, I’m comforted and my spirit is lifted, to be surrounded by men and women of faith, who have always been our true friends and allies.”
