J ESUS I S L ORD C HURCH W ORLDWIDE Educational Tour invites you to honor the presence of the GOD of Israel whose salvation is to the ends of the earth!
Come to Jerusalem, the very center of the earth, the capital city of the nations! Ezek.5:5 ~ “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: This is Jerusalem, which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her.”
Like King David, come to the mountain of the Holy Temple which is the place of the Holy Presence, the very place where David cried out to the Lord and where the God of Israel heard David’s cry for help. Psalm 3:3-4 ~ “But You are a shield around me, O Lord; You bestow glory and lift up my head. To the Lord, I cry aloud, and He answers me from His holy hill.” Psalm 5:7 ~ “But I, by Your great mercy, will come into Your house; In reverence will I bow down toward Your holy temple. Psalm 138:2 ~ "I will bow down toward Your holy Temple and will praise Your name for Your love and Your faithfulness " 2 Samuel 15:30, 32 ~ "But David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went "
The Lord who gave His name only to Israel and then through Israel blessed the nations, He is here. The God of Zion, the Holy One of Israel has been waiting for your pilgrimage and worship in the Holy City before the Holy Throne. Psalm 84:5-7 ~ "Blessed are those whose strength is in You, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Bacca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains will also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before GOD in Zion."
Why is He waiting for you? Because His heart, His desire and therefore His plan is to fulfill us in spirit and in body. To dwell with us in spirit and in body. In spirit and in truth. So that in spirit and in body, we will be free from all evil and we will know fullness of peace and prosperity. For such a plan, there is a place where He will both spiritually and physically and even geographically dwell with us. That place is Jerusalem, where Messiah will reign 1000 years on earth as it is in heaven, jut as He taught us to pray. He will return here to the Mount of Olives. Yes, YHWH ADONAI has been waiting for your worship in Zion and to inhabit your praise and move upon your needs. Psalm 65:1-5 ~ "Praise awaits You, O GOD in Zion; to You our vows will be fulfilled. O You who hear prayer, to You all men will come. When we were overwhelmed by sins, You forgave our transgressions. Blessed are those You choose and bring near to love in Your courts! We are filled with the good things of Your house, of Your holy Temple. You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O GOD our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth "
Welcome to the place of the footstool of His Throne. Psalm 99 ~ “Great is the Lord in Zion; He is exalted over the nations … Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His footstool, He is holy …They called on the Lord and He answered them … O Lord our God, You answered them; … Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.” Isaiah 60:13 ~ " to adorn the place of My sanctuary; and I will glorify the place of My feet." Ezekiel 43:1-7 ~ "Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, and I saw the glory of the GOD of Israel coming from the east The glory of the LORD entered the Temple through the gate facing east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the Temple He said, "Son of man, this is the place of My Throne and the place for the soles of My feet. This is where I will live among the Israelites forever."
Yes. welcome to the “forever” dwelling place of God, where Israel and the nations will be with HIM in spirit and in body and in an actual place. Psalm 132:7-8, ~ “Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool – Arise O Lord, and come to Your resting place … For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling. This is My resting place forever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it …”
Welcome to the place of the Throne of YHWH ADONAI, even the place where He will return to reign over all. Zech 14 ~ “Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. On that day, His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem …. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with Him … The Lord will be King over the whole earth. On that day, there will be one Lord, and His name the only name.” Jer. 3:17 ~ “At that time they will call Jerusalem the Throne of the Lord, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the Lord.” Zech. 8:3 ~ “This is what the Lord says, I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.” Mic. 4:6-8 ~ "In that day, declares the LORD, I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame a remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. As for you, O watchtower of the flock, O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you, kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem."
Welcome to the most special, most authentic prayer mountain in the world ~ the Mount of Olives - because here Christ Himself prayed. He prayed here so He Himself could pray towards the Holy of Holies, the Mercy Seat of mercy and grace, the holy Throne where the Divine Presence of YHWH ADONAI dwells. There YHWH dwells for the way ordained for His plan to meet and rule Israel and the nations. Luke 22:39 ~ “YAHSHUA went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and His disciples followed Him. On reaching the place, He said to them, Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” Welcome to the only mountain where it is mentioned in the Bible that Yahshua sang and praised! Matt. 26:30 Welcome to the mountain where Christ will once again take the cup of communion with us. Matt. 26:27-29
Welcome to the place where the God of Israel promises to hear the prayers of the foreigners who come from a distant land; even to hear their prayers to heal their land and nation. 2 Chro. 6:32-33 ~ "As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when he comes and prays toward this temple, then hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name. 2 Chro. 7:12-16 ~ the LORD appeared to him at night and said: "I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices.” When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. (I Kings 8 and 9)
You will come as come as among those who are beginning to fulfill the prophecy that the nations will come to worship the King in Zion. Zech, 8:20-22 ~ “This is what the Lord Almighty says: Many peoples and inhabitants of many cities will yet come, and the inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, Let us go at once to entreat the Lord Almighty. I myself am going. And many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the Lord Almighty and to entreat Him.” Isa. 56:6-7 ~ "And foreigners who bind themselves to the LORD to serve Him, to love the name of the LORD, and to worship Him, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and those who hold fast to My covenant - these I will bring to My Holy Mountain and give them joy in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations." Mic. 4: 1-4 (Isa.2) ~ “In the last days, the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, Come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths. The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” Psalm 102: ~ “So the name of the Lord will be declared in Zion and His name in Jerusalem when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the Lord.”
Let us pilgrimage to the Holy City and bless Israel - for the sake of the brethren and for the sake of the house of GOD, Israel and the Church as one new man. For as long as Jerusalem is not rebuilt in spirit and in reality, the Messianic plan for our redemption will not be completed. For it is in Jerusalem where MESSIAH will return to the assembly of the redeemed, to dwell with us and to reign over us one thousand glorious years (Revelation 20:6) before the eternal reign. Psalm 122 ~ I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel. There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
Yes, this is Jerusalem, the capital city of the Messiah and the central place for the completion of the gospel of our salvation! Isaiah 52:7-10 ~ How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!” Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the LORD returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God. Welcome to the city of our Master, the Great King. Ps. 48:1-2 ~ “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, His holy mountain, It is beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth … Mount Zion.”
Come and be blessed from Zion! Psalm 20:1-10 ~ May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests. Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm. O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
Psalm 134 ~ Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD who minister by night in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the LORD. May the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion. Isaiah 66:10-13 ~ "Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.” For this is what the LORD says: "I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” Psalm 128: 1-6 ~ Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD. May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
