A Prayer and Prophecy Tour of Israel with Anne Graham Lotz and Special Guest Ray Bentley!
You and I are living in historically significant times! I believe that we have been given the supreme privilege God’s people of all ages have longed to experience—the privilege of living in the generation that immediately precedes the rapture of the church and the subsequent return of Jesus Christ to earth! While this is undeniably thrilling, we have also been given the serious responsibility of living in the light of that truth so that when the sky unfolds, the trumpet sounds and Jesus Himself descends with a loud shout, we have no regrets.
While no one can know the day or the hour, I believe God has given us enough indicators so that we can at least know the generation. And it’s ours! How then should we respond? We don’t have to guess. Jesus tells us clearly in Mark 13:32-37: But of that day or hour no one knows… Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.
In an effort to be encouraged to watch and pray, join me for A Prayer and Prophecy Tour of Israel, July 5-15, 2018. I will share lessons that will refresh and revive our prayer life as we visit many amazing Biblical sites. This focus of our tour will be highlighted as we attend Joel Rosenberg’s Epicenter Prayer Summit in Jerusalem.
But I also desire to be sharpened in the awareness of prophecies that are being fulfilled all around us. To enrich this part of our tour, Ray Bentley, senior pastor of Maranatha Chapel in San Diego, CA, will be joining us in order to share his insights.
Along the way we will have many unforgettable experiences: walking on the hills overlooking Galilee where Jesus often withdrew to pray; sailing on the same sea with just the sound of the wind, sea birds, and waves lapping against the hull of the boat; sitting in a synagogue in a Nazareth village to read the Scriptures; looking out over the valley of Armageddon imagining the armies of the world uniting against God's Lamb; viewing Bethlehem, in awe of the ancient prophecies fulfilled so long ago when “a Child was born, a Son was given”; sitting on the Mount of Olives, listening again to the answer to His disciples’ question, “What will be the sign of Your coming?”; walking from Jerusalem to the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus agonized in prayer before the Cross; taking communion outside the empty tomb; ending on the Southern Steps of the ancient temple where His promise to be with us, even to the end of the age, was fulfilled when He sent down His Holy Spirit …the memories will be rich, full and unforgettable. My prayer is that the combination of rich fellowship with new and old friends, the tour of historic Biblical sites and the focused Bible teaching on prayer and prophecy, will be used by God to give each of us a renewed passion to live each moment expecting to see Him.
So please! Come with me! Let’s look back to where Jesus walked and talked while we keep looking up for His return…from our knees!
