Sukkot 2017 – Calling the Sons of God –
It Is Time for the Two Sticks to Become One in His Hand!
“What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
As He says also in Hosea: “I will call them My people, who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ there they shall be called sons of the living God,” Romans 9:22-26.
I was amazed last week when I listened to an Israeli giving a lecture on the history of the ten tribes ending with a call that Ephraim has to return to Israel so that Israel can enter into her prophetic destiny!
The mystery of the Church and Israel is manifesting as gentile believers who are grafted into the tree of Israel realize their identity as part of the commonwealth of Israel, the fullness of the gentiles is eminent……… and when this happens all of Israel will be saved. These are the days we are living in!
“I want you to understand this mystery, dear brothers and sisters, so that you will not feel proud about yourselves. Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. And so all Israel will be saved.
As the Scriptures say, “The one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, and he will turn Israel away from ungodliness. And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins,” Romans 11: 25-27.
Jan Willem van der Hoeven who is the founder of the ICEJ and ICZC has walked for 44 years with this vision in his heart. When he opened the Christian Embassy in 1978 an old Jewish man came to him with two sticks and said; “This is your calling, to bring Judah and Ephraim together” – the same happened again when Jan Willem opened the Christian Zionist Center in 1996.
It is time for us to prophetically manifest Ezekiel 37 in the Hinnom Valley during the Feast, the two sticks becoming one in His hand.
That is why we are calling the sons, the first peoples of the nations and all those who carry the highways of Zion in their heart to come up to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles 2017.
Enjoy the memories of Feast celebrations below as we invite you to the Hinnom Valley and the Heartland of Israel to be part of this historic Feast of Tabernacles 4-12 October 2017; …………….. this year in Jerusalem!
Shalom and blessings,
