Israel Toer 2013

Ons nooi u vriendelik uit om saam met ons na Israel te toer. U sal uself begeef op ’n reis na die mees betekenisvolle land ter węreld, nie net omdat dit die plek is waar vir ons saligheid betaal is nie, maar ook omdat die eindtydgebeure rondom hierdie stukkie aarde [waarvan die Here gesę het dit is Syne], afspeel. U sal geestelik aangeraak en verkwik, met ’n hart vol heimweë, terugkeer! Die Bybel sal vir u ’n nuwe betekenis kry. U sal die prentjie kan sien wanneer u weer in u gemeente na ’n boodskap van bv. Jesus se bediening rondom die see van Galilea luister, want u was daar! ’n Mens reis na Israel met ’n opgewonde, biddende en verwagtende hart!

As ek so na wereld gebeure kyk dan kan ons dalk volgende jaar ons toer verleng want Israel se grondgebied gaan so groot word na die Psalm 83 oorlog dat ons van die Nyl Rivier tot by die Eufraat sal kan toer. :monkeyd:

Deposito betaal! Hier gaat ons...na die Here se land en Sy volk! If you are "Left Behind", moenie worry nie, ek het 'n goeie boek wat julle kan lees. :)




Liewe medepelgrim

Groete in die Naam van die Koning!

Dit is met groot opgewondenheid dat ek u kan meedeel dat genoeg persone registreer het sodat die toer kan plaasvind. Dws as die Here wil!
Baie dankie dan ook aan u elkeen wat so flink reageer het – ons bid alreeds elke dag vir die toer!

Die goeie nuus is dat daar nog plek beskikbaar is, en dat persone steeds kan registreer. ‘n Aantal het dan ook aangedui dat hul dit wel gaan doen sodra hul die geleentheid kry.

Graag wil ek net ‘n paar vrese rondom die situasie in die Midde Ooste besweer:

• Israel is veiliger as Suid Afrika :yes: – al die persone wat alreeds saam met my daar was kan daarvan getuig. Vir Israel is die veiligheid van toeriste prioriteit!
Die gids en busoperateurs is gedurig in kontak met sekuriteit om moontlike gevaargebiede te vermy.
Selfs in die aande is dit heeltemal veilig om busse of taxi’s te neem en op u eie die omgewing te verken, of om in die strate rond te loop.
‘Daar heers net ‘n atmosfeer van veiligheid!’
• In geval van ‘n oorlog sal die toer gekanselleer, of vir ‘n redelike tyd uitgestel word. Indien dit onrealisties is om met die toer voort te gaan sal alle fooie terugbetaal word.
• Indien ons daar is en ‘n onverwagse situasie breek uit word alle onkostes deur assuransie gedek, en sou die toer nie daar kan voortgaan nie – u geld terug!

Soos reeds voorheen gesę: ‘Om na die Here se land te gaan is ‘n saak van gebed!’ ‘n Mens is veranderd as jy daar was!

Kontak my asb oor enigiets wat pla!

Bless Israel and you will be blessed! [Gen. 12:3]

DAY 1: SUNDAY, JUNE 30 NATANYA

http://www.thequietplacebnb.com/cesarea1.jpg
BREAKFAST / CAESERIA
Arrive early in Tel Aviv. We stop for Breakfast and continue to Caesarea, once a proud Roman port city dating back to the time of Pontius Pilate. View the monumental Roman amphitheater built in the days of Christ. Check in hotel. The rest of the day is free to stroll at the city centre.

http://www.sermonsfromseattle.com/images/clip_image001.jpg
SAFED / ACCRE / MT. CARMEL / NAZARETH / MT. PRECIPIECE
Travel to Safed in the Galilee and walk along the artists quarter. Continue to Accre for a short tour of the old city. Continue to Mukhraka on Mt. Carmel, overlooking the Izrael Valley and the Kishon. The Canaanite inhabitants worshipped Baal and his consort Ishtar who were adopted by the Israelites. Here Elijah the prophet challenged the priests of Baal to prove whose god was more powerful and when he won, the Israelites abandoned the Canaanite deities and the false prophets were slaughtered (1 Kings 18). Mukhraka, the traditional site of the contest, is today marked by a Carmelite monastery, built in 1886. Drive through Nazareth to visit Mount Precipice where tradition hold that an angry mob attempted to throw Jesus off the cliff (Luke 4:16-30). Below the cliff unfold Izrael Valley and from here we can view Mt. Tabor, Gilad Mountains and Megiddo (Armageddon) where Joshua defeated the Canaanite king of Megiddo, a city which king Solomon built and the site where kings Ahaziah and Joshia killed. For Christians, Armageddon is where forces of God will defeat the forces of Evil in the Final Battle at the End Day.
Dinner & Overnight - Tiberias (B,D)

DAY 3: TUESDAY, JULY 2 GALILEE
TABGHA / PETER’S PRIMACY / CAPERNAUM / BOAT RIDE / FISH LUNCH / MT. BEATITUDES / YARDENIT / DATES SHOP
We spend the day around the Sea of Galilee and the north. Visit Peter’s Primacy. Here Jesus met again with the disciples for the "last breakfast" and restored Peter to himself after the disciple's three denials by asking him three times if Peter loved Jesus. Continue to Capernaum that in old times used to be for a border village on the way to Damascus. The Gospel tells about Jesus leaving Nazareth to settle in Capernaum, which became “his own town” and centre of his activities. From its community of fishermen he chose many of his disciples (Peter, Andrew, James, John and Matthew). View the remains of a synagogue 2-3 centuries earlier than when Jesus taught, though most likely on the same site. Nearby are the remains of an octagonal structure, thought to be built on the remains of Peter’s house. Continue to Ginnosar to enjoy a Boat Ride across the Sea of Galilee and hear how Jesus calmed the stormy sea and walked upon these waters. Enjoy a traditional St. Peter’s Fish Lunch. Continue to Mt. Beatitudes. Above the mountain is the traditional spot where Jesus delivered the Sermon, he taught on many occasions and also performed many of the miracles. Continue to Yardenit Baptismal site on the Jordan River, where time will be available for an optional baptismal service – not included in tour price (bring suitable clothing or hire them).
We then visit a unique Dates shop.
Dinner & overnight - Tiberias (B,L,D)

CASEREA PHILLIPI / HAR HABTARIM / MANARA / KIBBUTZ

We start ascending the Golan Heights and view Har Habtarim (we don’t go up there). According to tradition, God made covenant with Abraham and gave him the Promised Land. Ascend Manara by cable car for a spectacular view from the Naftali Mountains over the Hula Valley, Mt. Hermon and the Golan Heights. Arrive early at Kibbutz Kfar Blum. Short visit around the Kibbutz to learn about this unique way of life before enjoying the time at their beautiful hotel..

JERICHO* / QUMRAN* / MASADA / DEAD SEA / BEDOUIN CAMP
Drive along the Jordan Valley for a very short visit in Jericho (* TIME PERMITTING) the oldest city Joshua concurred. In the horizon you will see Mt. of Temptation. Continue to Qumran (* TIME PERMITTING) where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. The scrolls were written by a Jewish sect, the Essenes whom sought the seclusion of the Judean Desert, where they could follow the Law more closely, and wait for the coming Messiah. Enjoy a float in the salty waters of the Dead Sea. Ascend Masada by cable car for a fascinating tour of this mountain where 960 Jewish defenders organized the last resistance to the Roman conquerors.

From here we enter the Old City. Your guide will tell to you about the battle of Jerusalem’s old city during the 1967 war. Visit the Western Wall the most sacred place. Continue to Pools of Bethesda, probably designed at times Herod the Great for the Jewish inhabitants to purify themselves and here Jesus performed the miracle of healing infirm man. We next visit Proturium (Gabbata or Lithostratos). Here you can see a large cistern covered by a later pavement etched with meaningful symbols, including the “game of the King.” Here, many pause in prayer and to recall Jesus’ mocking by the Roman soldiers at the place John called the Gabbata, or “stone pavement” (John 19:13). Walk through the Jewish Quarters to the Upper Room of the Last Supper (time for prayer). We next visit the Garden Tomb, where some believe Jesus was buried (Holy Communion time will be booked).

History of the Jewish Nation
1812 BCE - Time of Abraham begins (Mesopotamian & Egyptian civilization in flower) The World of Abraham By understanding the character of Abraham, the "proto-Jew", one can understand what Jews are all about. Founder of Judaism Abraham gave rise to a nation of Hebrews -- people who live "on the other side." The Promised Land God gave Abraham and his family the Land of Israel as a laboratory where his descendants are supposed to create the nation that's the model for the world.
1712 BCE - Time of Isaac begins 1652 BCE - Time of Jacob begins Isaac and His Sons History repeats itself. Whatever groove Abraham or Isaac or Jacob are going to carve, their descendants are going to get stuck in it.
1544 BCE - Joseph sold into slavery Joseph The story of Joseph demonstrates a classic historic pattern of the Jew in Diaspora. The Jew arrives impoverished, works hard despite deprivation, and rises to the top.
1522 BCE - Joseph welcomes his family to Egypt Reunion Joseph realizes that through the generations, the family has created a rut of hatred among the brothers. To remedy the situation, he sets the stage for a great test.
1428 BCE - Israelites enslaved in Egypt
1392 BCE - Time of Moses begins (Egyptian cities of Pithom & Ramses are built) Moses In an all-time irony of ironies, the savior of the Jewish people is raised in the house of the ultimate enemy of the Jews.
1312 BCE - Exodus The Ten Plagues Most miracles are natural phenomena with awesomely good timing. The Ten Plagues are a notable exception.
1312 BCE - Torah given at Mount Sinai (Canaanites tribes occupy Promised Land) Mount Sinai The encounter between God and the Jews at Mount Sinai was a totally unique event in all of human history. The Golden Calf Only 1/10 of 1% of the Jews participated in worshipping the golden calf. Yet God's reaction makes it clear he is blaming the whole nation. What's going on here?
1272 BCE - Conquest of Promised Land The Tragedy of the Spies The spies story occurred on one of the most significant and tragic dates in Jewish history -- the 9th of Av. Every major disaster in Jewish history is connected to this date. Joshua & the Conquest of the Promised Land This is no
typical war of conquest replete with pillaging and murder. God has said, "If you follow My instructions all will go well."
1106 BCE - Time of the Judges begins (Philistines occupy coastal area of Israel) The Time of the Judges The Jews had no king, but when they needed guidance they turned to "judges," who were both warriors and prophets.
879 BCE - Saul anointed king King Saul King Saul was a great man who committed one terrible mistake, dooming his reign from the start.
877 BCE - Time of King David begins David The Shepherd & The Warrior Still too young to fight in the army, David becomes Israel's champion when he slays Goliath. David The King He established Jerusalem as Israel's capital, choosing a place that Jacob called “the gate of heaven.”
836 BCE - King Solomon begins his rule 825 BCE - First Temple completed (Assyrian empire rising in the north) King Solomon King Solomon, the wisest of all men, built the Temple in Jerusalem and reigned over Israel's golden age.
796 BCE - Israel split into two kingdoms A Divided Nation In response to the king's arrogance, the ten northern tribes secede, splitting Israel in two.
555 BCE - Assyrians overturn northern Israel; Ten tribes are lost. Assyrian Conquest The Assyrians, who conquer northern Israel, introduce a new way of dealing with vanquished nations. It's called exile.
547 BCE - Sennacherib attacks Jerusalem (Babylonians overrun Assyrian empire) The End of Israel Judah lasts another of 134 years before it, too, falls bringing to an end the kingdom of Israel.
422 BCE - Babylonians conquer Israel & destroy Temple (Persians overrun Babylonian Empire) Babylonian Exile The Babylonians think God has abandoned the Jews and celebrate. But they have a surprise coming.
370 BCE - Jews return from Babylonian exile 355 BCE - Miracle of Purim Purim in Persia Another feast celebrating God’s abandonment of Israel puts in motion a plot to annihilate the Jews.
352 BCE - Construction of Second Temple begins The Second Temple The Temple the Babylonians destroyed is rebuilt, but it is never the same – the Ark of the Covenant is missing.
