Touched by Israel
This past February I had the opportunity to join a tour to Israel. To be perfectly honest, I must confess that I was not overly excited to go. Oh, don’t get me wrong—I faithfully prayed for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6), but I had no real desire to go. However, God had something altogether different in mind for me! First God changed my mind about taking the trip, and then Israel changed my heart! Every sight and nearly every individual I encountered served to burrow deeper into my heart. With each passing day, the Land itself cried out to me, “Welcome home!” It felt like home—...
A SIGNAL FOR THE NATIONS
Signs in the Heavens We have a series of extraordinary signs in the heavens: four blood-red moons (lunar eclipses), interspersed with solar eclipses. The lunar eclipses occur on consecutive biblical feast days (Passover and Tabernacles) spread across two years. Two weeks after the blood-red moon on Tabernacles last October we had a partial solar eclipse, then a total solar eclipse on 20 March 15, two weeks before the blood red moon at Passover. “Then God said: ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens… for signs and for seasons…’ ” Genesis 1:14 ESV The Hebrew word translated as “...
Days of Preparation are ending
Shalom dear friends, Watching the tragedies in France last week brought us to a place of deep travail. What a wakeup call this is for all the Jewish people who live outside of Israel, as well as for those of us who proclaim, pray, assist and encourage aliyah. In the article linked below you will read about Yoav Hattab, one of the terrorist victims in Paris, who longed to make aliyah. In honor of this young man and in obedience to God, let’s stand and boldly proclaim God’s truth. Share the need for prayer and finances. Share the hope that aliyah brings to the world. Do this any way you can and...

Latest on the Ukraine Crisis
Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, The escalating unrest in Ukraine is a great concern for our operations in the former Soviet Union. The latest report from Vadim, our onsite leader, shares that the current situation has pushed many Jewish families to make aliyah, or at least seriously consider it: “We have noticed an increased number of Jewish families turning to us for help. In previous months, our regular statistic was helping 3-5 families monthly. However, during March we have provided support to over 60 Jewish families (more than 140 persons)." "Praise the Lord, we have maintained...

Ukraine in Turmoil
We saw a new page in Ukraine’s history open on 30 November 2013. That day special police units forcibly broke up a demonstration in Kiev by political activists, although most of the protesters were, in fact, high school students. Now, just a short time later, we realize that we live in a different Ukraine. The most radical change came in the last two weeks of January with peaceful protests turning into riots in the center of Kiev, and regional administrative offices stormed in western and central Ukraine. In the midst of the protests against the current authorities, some radical and...

'Flee From the Land of the North'
Ukraine is where Ebenezer International’s operational ministry began. In his hotel room in Odessa on 20 December 1991, as he prepared for Ebenezer’s first sailing to Haifa, Gustav Scheller, the ministry’s founder, spoke prophetically about seeing ‘the vision come to pass’. Ebenezer’s birth had taken place at the beginning of 1991, during the first Gulf War, when the Lord spoke to a group of intercessors in Jerusalem saying that now was the time to help the Jewish people return from the ‘land of the north’, which includes Ukraine. The strategic importance of Ukraine cannot be under-estimated,...

Bnei Menashe, Sons of Manasseh, Return from India
Through your financial giving, we are able to support the work of Shavei Israel, helping to bring back the Bnei Menashe from India. The Bnei Menashe are descendants from one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, which were sent into exile in Assyria more than 27 centuries ago. Their ancestors wandered through Central Asia and the Far East for centuries before settling in what is now north-eastern India, along the border with Burma and Bangladesh. Michael Freund, Chairman of Shavei Israel, rejoiced with 53 of this ancient tribe when they arrived in Israel on December 24, 2012. He writes: "It was a...

The Return of the Bnei Menashe
Ebenezer Operation Exodus is supporting the work of a Jewish organisation, Shavei Israel, in helping the Bnei Menashe tribe return to Israel after many centuries of exile in India. Deepa Thomas, our India National Coordinator, explains: The Bnei Menashe, a group of over 9,000 people living in India’s north-eastern border states of Manipur and Mizoram, claim descent from one of the ten lost tribes of Israel who were sent into exile by the Assyrian empire more than 27 centuries ago. Their ancestors wandered through Central Asia and the Far East for centuries before settling in India, along the...

Australia - Praying for Aliyah Highways
Australia has been a safe haven for Jewish people for over 200 years. The expanse of the world’s driest continent, covering 7,600 square kilometres, is sparsely populated with just 23 million inhabitants. Living mainly in the largest coastal cities is a vibrant 120,000-strong Jewish community, many of them descended from immigrants who arrived here in the last century as refugees and holocaust survivors. They have made a profound contribution to Australian society and culture across fields such as medicine, law, music, the arts, science, the military forces, government and business. In...

Germany - Hearts Knitted Together
The first European Ebenezer Conference drew 130 delegates representing 10 countries to Berlin for four days in January. Entitled ‘Prepare the Way’, our hearts were knitted together with the Lord’s for the re-gathering of the Jewish people to Israel from all over Europe. We were encouraged by our co-workers’ reports and challenged and greatly blessed by our guest speaker, Willem Glashouwer, leader of Christians for Israel International (CVI). Referring to Matthew 16:1-3, he said there is an urgent need for us and the churches to understand ‘God’s weather forecast’ in discerning the signs of...
