GOD TV Bless Israel 2017 Update
In January GOD TV President and CEO, Ward Simpson led GOD TV viewers to “start the year right” with a special ‘Bless Israel’ broadcast. Funds were raised for GOD TV’s continued broadcast outreach and to support several charitable projects. Since then, the Lord has miraculously increased our viewership and we have been able to support underprivileged Messianic Jews and Christian Arabs.
SOME OF THE PROJECTS WE SUPPORT IN ISRAEL
At GOD TV we know we’re blessed to be a blessing and through the phenomenal support of our viewers we have been able to accomplish the following:
- We are partnering with Together for Israel to bring joy into the lives of many young kids by building playgrounds for children in Northern Israel.
- GOD TV is supporting a Hebrew speaking Messianic congregation, Tiferet Yeshua to expand their outreach. They are doubling their seating capacity from 150 to 300 people and are starting to live stream their services to reach more people with the Gospel.
- We have given to Keren Ahvah Meshihit, a ministry printing Bibles and Christian teaching materials in Hebrew and Russian to make God’s Word more accessible to people in Israel and immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
- Together with our GOD TV viewers, we have supported Reach Initiative International, who serve and offer comfort to Holocaust survivors.
“One of my greatest joys to is being able to hand a check to amazing ministries and organizations that are helping people,” said GOD TV’s Regional Director for Israel, Ron Cantor. “Our viewers from around the world are making a difference in the Land of Israel.”
GOD TV NOW BROADCASTING INTO ISRAEL
Prior to the Bless Israel Broadcast, GOD TV reached the world from Israel but had limited reach within Israel itself. But God did a miracle and we now broadcast to a potential 1.3 million Israeli homes on the Hot Cable Network.
God has also just added 6 million more homes to GOD TV’s broadcast reach in Africa, answering our prayers for us to be on the DStv satellite platform, covering 10 nations in Southern Africa. Click for more information about GOD TV’s Mission Africa.
“God’s Word promises us that if we bless Israel, we shall be blessed and already we see immediate fruit.”
“We thank God for these breakthroughs in our distribution,” said Ward Simpson, “God’s Word promises us that if we bless Israel, we shall be blessed and already we see immediate fruit. We want to see revival come to the nations, we also want to see the nations revived in their support of Zion.”
There are many ways to bless Israel including a visit to the Land of the Bible. Israel thrives on tourism and offers a very warm welcome to pilgrims of all denominations. GOD TV has often taken tours to Israel over the years and a special tour is being planned for 2018 to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the modern State of Israel, which as prophesied, became a nation in a day, in 1948.
Why Bless Israel?
God’s Word is specific about how Christians should treat the Jewish people and pray for the Middle East:
- “For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.” (Romans 15:27).
- “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:1-3).
- “For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.” (Isaiah 62:1).
- “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.” (Psalm 122: 6-9).
- “I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest and give Him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. (Isaiah 62:6-7).
