Welcome to the 2018 Annual Feast of Tabernacles, Christian Celebration, in Jerusalem, Israel!

Enjoy the celebrations of many nations and "participate" in the  2018 Jerusalem March along with 6500 visitors from 100 nations. Watch as they wave their country's flags while wearing their national colors and creating a joyous sound with their instruments. 

You can also witness the "Israeli Guest Evening" as many Holocaust survivors enjoyed the international dancers and local Israeli music. They heard and saw the inspirational reports about the work of the host organization, The International Christian Embassy~Jerusalem. 

Sit back and relax~Enjoy the happiness that decended from the four corners of the earth to the Holy City of Jerusalem. You will be blessed for sure!

We wish you a sweet and blessed Jewish New Year!

To our Jerusalem Vistas Partners and Friends:

We in Jerusalem are wishing you and your loved ones a sweet and blessed Jewish New Year.

We join with our Jewish family in marking this last month of Elul with sincere soul-searching accompanied with repentance. The path always seems to get narrower and steeper but blessed. 

The only hope for Israel, with Iranian forces amassing on our Northern Border in Syria, is Divine intervention. We all know that Israel’s enemies will continue to expand until they are stopped once and for all and that apparently is what the United States and Russia hope to do.  Do you believe it? I hope not. Man is only man. 

Our God who sits in the heavens shall laugh at the folly of men...Psalm 2

Do not for a moment be tempted to think that your prayers and support are not important! Thank you.

John Bolton, US National Security Advisor said recently in a press briefing in Jerusalem; “Putin has told Trump that he “would like to see the withdrawal of Iranian troops from Syria, but he is not able to do it himself.” As the scriptures below forecast, we are living to witness this end time military build up “from the land of the north.”

"Thus says the LORD God, Behold I am against you O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Mehech, and Tubal. I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws, and lead you out with all your army…Persia, (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya…they will come to a land that dwells safely to take a booty…Ezekiel 38:3,5. ”  (Booty-Israel has discovered one of the largest natural gas finds in the world today in their offshore gas wells)

It will be 50 years (as of Oct 2019) that we have been set as “Watchmen on the Walls of Jerusalem,” proclaiming Biblical events in the media as they have unfolded for over half of Israel’s modern lifetime. As you probably know we have been struggling financially for the last six months. We realize that many of our partners are elderly and are on fixed incomes. We are sensitive to these facts so we work to create a new support base, which is difficult because now that we are appealing to internet-based audience, people feel little compulsion to support Jerusalem Vistas.

How well I remember Dr. James Dobson, Founder of ‘Focus on the Family’ and what he did when the ministry was in dire financial need. After seeking the LORD, he wrote to his partners and said: “IF this ministry is no longer supported by its partners, I will have to close it.” 

It was just that simple, and that is exactly the situation that we at Jerusalem Vistas/Israel Vision find ourselves today.  I know that we are not afraid to change. Meridel and I feel very badly that none of our team have been paid their small salaries for the last three months. This has caused tremendous stress, piled upon the added stress of just living here. We cannot carry on in this manner. We have never shirked from ‘following hard after God’ and this crisis is absolutely no different. The truth is, the future of this work lies in your blessed hands.  

If you have any way of helping us to go on, we pray that you will find a way to do so and do it immediately.
In His Love,
Jay and Meridel and team

PM Netanyahu's Message to Every Mother and Father

We Face This Daily In Israel~What Would You Do If This Was Your Child's School?



Text of Video:
This is a message to every parent, to every mother and to every father: 

The other day, Israeli preschoolers were playing in their yard. Out of nowhere, an innocent looking balloon descended upon them. Yet this was no ordinary balloon. Palestinian terrorists attached burning flames to it. 

They turned a child's toy into a weapon of terror. “We smelled a fire,” one preschooler shouted, standing between a sand pit and a red slide. And these beautiful children were nearly burned alive. Their brave teacher led the terrified children to safety just in time. Thankfully, their precious lives were spared. 

Now think about this. What does it say about the terrorists that run Gaza that they try to burn Israeli preschoolers alive? 

And so when you drop your son or daughter off at school today, I want you to hug them. Hug them especially tight. Tell them you love them. Tell them you'll always protect them. Then call up another mother or father and tell them this story.
This is What Israel Defends Itself Against Every Single Day.

Israel Did Assist In The Rescue of White Helmet Volunteers

Picture Captured from the Video Below
There have been varying reports, many saying nothing about Israel's assistance in the covert evacuation that took place over the weekend.

In fact, Israel did assist in transporting approximately ninety-eight Syrian White Helmet Volunteers along with three hundred-twenty-four of their family members to a safe location in Jordan. 

The four hundred twenty-two refugees will be resettled in Canada, Germany, the UK and several other countries who have agreed to take them in and assist in re-homing them and starting them off in their new life.

The secret operation was carried out in the middle of the night. The Syrian refugees, whose lives were under threat of death, were met at different locations, and brought across the border into Israel. Once they were all accounted for they were taken to buses and then escorted safely to Jordon.

One report stated that a pregnant woman went into labor. When they feared she would not be able to make it, an emergency Cesarean Section was performed on the Syrian side of the border resulting in the delivery a baby boy. The mother and son were then both transported to Israel. 
 
"Standing on the border and receiving the families, mostly women and children, was an emotional experience,” said the commander in charge of Operation Good Neighbor. “Families that arrived were fearful, but when they reached the border with Israel, their eyes were filled with tears of happiness, knowing that they have gotten their lives back. I'm proud to be an officer in an army and a country that carries out an operation filled with values of humanity and compassion...This is the essence of our work, and this moment is invaluable."  

Israel is a very tiny country, but, Her Heart is Huge. We pray for Israel and the men and women of the IDF who devote their lives to their mission of protecting and assisting all people while defending our borders.

Jerusalem Vistas Online Learning Centre Project

Dear Friends and Partners

Last week I made some long distance phone calls to our friends and partners in Canada and the USA, HOPING to raise support.  We did have fellowship, I prayed for each one~But~I was shocked and saddened at how many were in health crisis and in desperate need of prayer for their physical conditions. What is happening to our army of helpers?

Many of our long term prayer partners were nearly incapacitated. This made me realize two things. First that we must keep up our morning prayer watch for these sickly saints to be made well. Second, we must reach and inspire the younger generation to partner in our faith based media work.

For forty-nine years, Meridel, myself, our sons and co-workers have done our very best to publish the "Good News" from Zion to a worldwide audience.

Yes, we have regularly changed our format from 16mm film to various video standards to now "digital" materials on the Internet.   We must make these changes to keep current. Thank God we still have the same message.
"TO TELL THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD CONCERNING ISRAEL TODAY.
HELP US TO SHINE THE LIGHT OF BIBLE PROPHECY INTO OUR DARK WORLD.

TO ACHIEVE THIS WE HAVE CREATED THE JERUSALEM VISTAS ONLINE LEARNING CENTRE. 
Our sons are busy creating programming for the younger generation. Its time! 

Each program will feature GEMS of Biblical truth in the back ground of the folly of 'fake news'.  We will separate the facts from the fantasy. You can make it possible for our team to film on location in ISRAEL and GREECE.  These topical, snappy and easy to digest portions are for the internet and social media that aim to educate and inspire!

YOU CAN BE a part of this new venture!  What topics would you like us to highlight? You can help to sponsor us~see below for how you can join. Summer is brutally hot here in the Middle East and the crops could not survive without the dew. Likewise, we need daily, weekly, and monthly "dew" support to keep our studio up and running in this "dry season".

The budget for this project is $50,000. We have just received a $5,000 gift toward it. Praise God!

Please take a few minutes right now to send your gift and become a JVOLC Sponsor! We Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Together we can move forward!

For out of Zion shall go forth the Teaching (Torah)
and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem...Isaiah 2:3b

Harvest in Mid-July!

We have had great weather in Israel this year. From well-needed rain coming at unexpected times to the glorious sun that we almost always have above us. This not only makes life pleasant, but it causes fruits, vegetables and all plant life to grow and thrive.

Jay and Meridel have always planted, and planted some more, in their small garden. They utilize the borders around the yard, and every little corner that a spade of earth can occupy.

The varieties of things that sprout and grow is amazing. Apart from beautiful flowers and trees one can find bushes of herbal tea to olives, pomegranates and clementines~there is always something to find and enjoy.


This week the grapes along the arbor and around the fence are more than ready to be harvested. The birds have already noticed and begun their own picking. Early in the morning, Jay and Meridel pulled out the ladders and clippers to began bringing in the luscious clusters of sweet, beautiful grapes to munch on and make into juice.





Enjoying the fruits of one's labours is very satisfying. When the "harvest" takes place in the early morning, when the dew is barely dry, the air fresh and cool, it adds to the overall joy of the event. A time of laughter and joy and fellowship!




...Here it is!


The first glass of freshly pressed grape juice!
