From the Gallicantu pit

In the pit of the Church of Gallicantu

In the pit of the Church of Gallicantu

 

A poignant and unusually private moment with Katharine and me in the pit at the Church of “Gallicantu” (crowing rooster).  This place is considered a likely site of Caiaphas’ house and prison where Yeshua was kept after His arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane, and where Peter denied the Lord. We have been here before with streaming tourists crowding the space and vying for the pulpit. On the pulpit is a book with Psalm 88 written in dozens of languages. Pilgrims come here from all over the world to recite the age-old psalm that heralds the cost for Yeshua to be separated from His Father on the cross to come.

We read it (you will hear it in our series on Joseph) and prayed as the anointed words echoed in the empty pit. What a glorious and compassionate Messiah! What a testimony of restoration in the life of Shimon Kefar (Simon Peter).  What hope for you and me because of God’s mercy..

Early morning at the Garden Tomb

Myles and Katharine, Early morning at the Garden Tomb

Here you see two very tired but very inspired hosts. We are so grateful to be able to bring people to the Land.

Early morning at the Garden Tomb, before opening its doors to the hundreds of international pilgrims who find solace here.  The guides make a strong case for this being the likely site of Yeshua’s tomb. We do know that the site is not as important as the event… the tomb is empty! He is risen and that means hope to all. He is the Messiah of the Jewish people and the Savior of the world. Son of God AND greater son of David…
We hosted 96 pilgrims here last week and our communion service ended the tour. The anointing of the Lord was powerful and made for a perfect day. We began at the Holocaust Museum (Yad VaShem) experiencing the depths of human depravity and closed the day with worship and communion here in the garden. One young man rededicated his life to the Lord.  Another man was baptized for the first time. Israel awakens the deepest longing and points to the One who satisfies that longing in our hearts.

A Kiss from Adonai in the Desert

A kiss from our Lord on the Judean desert.

A visible kiss from our Lord on the Judean desert.

In the midst of Jerusalem’s latest, very challenging strife, we are filming a new television series on the life of Jacob’s son Joseph. The thrust of the series is the mystery of “Mashiach Ben Josef” in relation to ” Mashiach Ben David”–the Suffering One who is also the reigning King.

We are blessed beyond measure to have just led 96 pilgrims through the Promised Land. The testimonies of the pilgrims were outstanding: to a person, they had life-changing experiences. I am very impressed by the spiritual character of our TV viewers and travel companions. We get the sweetest people with us on tour — so flexible, resilient, and God-oriented.

After we parted from them, we began this challenging video shoot. Because of Jerusalem’s unrest, we have not been able to stay with our schedule and are juggling times and locations.

Still, our faithful God released a kiss from Heaven (see the picture) as we taught on the edge of the Judean desert.

Please pray for us as we fulfill the mandate to remove the “Egyptian identity” of Jesus and reveal Him as the Messiah of my Jewish people AND the Savior sent for everyone the world over.

God bless you all — Myles and Katharine

Myles from Mars Hill in Greece

By Myles and Katharine Weiss

Thirty-six pilgrims joined Katharine and Myles for the first leg of the 30th Anniversary Tour.  As we began walking in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul in Athens, Myles delivered a solid reminder of Rabbi Saul’s Hebrew origins and his masterful ability to “become all things to all men.”

The Promise

Immanuel Tours CEO Phillip Meyers

Immanuel Tours CEO Phillip Meyers with Myles Weiss

I interviewed the CEO of Immanuel Tours, our Israel tour land management company, Phillip Meyers. What a story!

He was part of a Hebrew Christian family and was saved from the Holocaust at eight years of age. Raised in England by a Messianic group, he came to Israel to raise his family in faith. Now, he helps host thousands of pilgrims in their life-changing trips to Zion. We are privileged to work with him and his team. We just celebrated Zola Tours’ 30th anniversary of tours to the Holy Land — an outstanding  experience!

With Tommy Waller, modern sign and wonder

By Myles Weiss

In Samaria -- the heartland of Israel

Myles and Tommy Waller in Samaria — the heartland of Israel

Tommy brings his 11 children and 4 grandchildren to plant and harvest grapes alongside Modern Orthodox Jews. Both Jews and Christians recognize the prophetic sign from Joel 2, Amos 9, Ezekiel 36, and Isaiah 49 as the gentiles shoulder the burden of the Jewish return to the Promised Land!

Hundreds come to help each year.

Our Journey Winds Down

By Myles and Katharine Weiss  Holocaust Memorial - wings

Kol b’seder (all good)

Kol d’vash (all honey!)

Greetings from Jerusalem, where the Earth can be heard groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19) and, most importantly, the Mashiach! HE is the captain of the hosts of The Lord!

We are exhausted from a month of leading, teaching, writing, interceding, and TV production in the pressure cooker of Israel. Of course, there is no other place we want to be or other assignment we would request.

If you have prayed for us, our deepest thanks and heartfelt understanding. Only time will tell how often we were carried on the wings of your prayers. Perhaps also how many times we were protected from harm and covered by your involvement.

For now, we are resting. We actually finished our TV shoot as the first rain drops fell—God’s perfect timing—and today (Shabbat) dawned with glorious blue skies and the sun beaming through majestic white clouds. HE is the Master Artist; His creation sings His praises.

We are in awe of how God is orchestrating lives in these days. Our continual prayer is that the international faith community will land on God’s side and stand with God’s plan for Israel and the emerging shared destiny of Jews and Christians. You know us, and you know we also reach for the deliverance of our Muslim friends from any “occupation of the soul” that inhibits their recognition of God’s sovereignty.

I mean Yahweh, THE God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; not Allah, a desert moon god who opposes the Creator and His scriptural, prophetic plan for Earth and its people. Yahweh/HaShem/Adonai is not willing that any perish, but that all come to eternal life.

We have a couple of days left to tie up some loose ends, and we plan to visit Tel Aviv’s Diaspora Museum. It is there, I am told, that we may find info on my relatives who live here or were lost in the Holocaust. Please pray for this poignant and potentially difficult process.

We love you all and are so very blessed to co-labor with you!
Myles and Katharine
