Dare to Dream BIG!

This full day at the Feast of Tabernacles was packed with everything from humble prayer, explosively dynamic worship and inspired teachings from the word of God – all in the marvelous city of Jerusalem.

God’s Sovereign Faithfulness and Grace for Israel – Morning Plenary
At the Feast’s first morning plenary, Daniel Yahav gave a message about Israel that only a native of Israel can deliver – consisting of both hope and reality. He referred to Israel’s amazing history through the millennia, “It’s exciting to hear the words that God spoke with Abraham 4,000 years ago, recorded by Moses 3,500 years ago.” The reality is, however, that God has guided the Jewish nation very much in spite of itself, i.e., by grace, and that believers should have God’s sovereign works as their main focus as they rejoice over the miracles performed for Israel. He drove home his message on the sovereignty of the Lord by stating, “God is not waiting, and He is not dependent on the nations or the UN. Our God is God. He created heaven and earth, and He has decided that this land is the inheritance of the people of Israel.”

The Pulse of Israel’s Local Body - Afternoon Seminars
Getting to know local believers and the situation on the ground is important, and the best source for this is to connect directly with the people of the land. That’s why the ICEJ organized a panel discussion with three Messianic leaders from three different cities in Israel: Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Ashdod. The open and frank discussion gave examples of how to share faith and show God’s love in direct and practical ways. Praying for healing continues to gather momentum both among believers going out to pray and the ones who are being healed. 

ICEJ Headquarter Tours

Groups of pilgrims made a special visit to the International Christian Embassy headquarters to take a look behind the scenes of the ICEJ. The Headquarters here in Jerusalem is a beautiful and unique historical building tucked in the middle of a Jewish neighbourhood. This is the place God has chosen to do his work through a diverse staff from all around the world to bring His comfort to His people. As the visitors came in the gate, they were greeted by one of the ICEJ staff members and were able to enjoy some refreshments in the succah set up on the property of the Embassy. Many of the visitors came in large groups, so they divided into smaller groups according to their language. ICEJ staff gave tours in many different languages explaining the extraordinary miracles God has done through His ministry here in the land of Israel and around the world.  

A Breakthrough Year for Israel - Evening Celebration
An all-star line-up of speakers and performers from Israel and around the world, set the tone for another festive and insightful night in Jerusalem. On the performance side, the evening opened with the powerful pulses of Eddie James’ young performers, who drew energy from the powerful Bible Scriptures they declared with determination for the promises about Israel. With kicks, powerful pumps and superior rhythm, the dancers and singers had everyone in the audience on their feet before the final crescendo of a loud shout for the Lord as they dropped prostrate on the scene to show their humility. 

They were later followed by the smooth jazzy sounds of Togo’s French-speaking worship team, who got the audience going in a different groove. The Togolese group did their thing so well that the audience joined them by dancing onto the stage with their national flags. 

Do not Limit the Holy One of Israel
Setting stage for the evening’s main speaker was a Nigerian soloist, bursting forth with praise to our God with power and elegance. Her song burst forth in power and grace which transformed the arena into a majestic throne room for God. Preparing the way for Pastor Enoch Adeboye, also from Nigeria, he humbly invoked the Lord’s anointing for the evening with a simple hymn, complementing the majestic with genuine child-like affection for our Creator Father, “Holy One of Israel, we worship you – we bow before You.” He encouraged the crowd to revive their faith in old God-given dreams and exhorted them to work hard for them while under no circumstances offending God or limiting the Holy One of Israel. He also explained that sometimes God doesn't fulfill our dreams, because He has something bigger and better for us. He encouraged that crowd to dream a dream that is so big that can only be possible if God makes it happen. Adeboye testified about his journey of faith and dreaming with God, and said, “You know your dream is from God when people laugh at you. And then you can tell them, just wait and see.” He confidently and humbly stated that, "God is not a joker. Whatever God says he will do...he will do!"
