Transforming The 10/40 Window Nations Through The Power of Prayer

Window Kids July 2013

Hi WindowKids!

We are halfway through the year, and our journeys through the Middle East have been very exciting.  There is no journey as exciting as ours will be this month!  Wait until you see where we are about to go!  This month we are visiting ancient Israel.  Enjoy your journey.  These pictures will speak for themselves.

templemount

Temple Mount: There is a long history to the Temple that the Lord first instructed King Solomon to build.  It is referred to as “Solomon’s Temple,” and it was built with clear instructions from the Lord.  However, it was totally destroyed by the Babylonians approximately 370 years after it was built.

The Temple was rebuilt, and then destroyed again by Antiochus III.  He tried to impose the teachings of the Greek gods in the Temple, and the Jews revolted.  Today, a Muslim mosque sits on the Temple Mount, and it is called the “Dome of the Rock.”  It is difficult for Jews to share this sacred place with a temple honoring another god.


nazareth

Nazareth: After the death of Herod, Joseph dreamed that an angel instructed him to move his family back to Israel from Egypt, to a city called Nazareth  (The Bible,Matthew 2:19).  This town near Galilee was the childhood home of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Matthew 2:23).  It is a beautiful city nestled in the hills of Israel, where a cool breeze often blows, even in the summer heat.

bethlehemBethlehem: This town near Jerusalem was the birthplace of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Luke 2:4). Micah, the Prophet, even prophesied that Israel’s ”ruler” would come from Bethlehem (The Bible, Micah 5:2).   It was also the place where Rachel (the wife of Jacob), died (The Bible, Genesis 35:18-20).
qumramQumram Caves: Although the Qumran Caves may not be mentioned in the Bible, it is very important that we mention it on our journey through the Land of Israel.  In 1947, or late 1946, a young shepherd boy was looking for a lost animal near the Qumran Caves.  He threw a rock into the opening of the cave, hoping to find his animal.  Instead, he found something much more important. When he threw that rock, he heard the sound of a pot shattering.  Imagine his surprise!  After looking further, he found 2,000 year old scrolls of the Bible!  What an incredible discovery! sea of galileeSea of Galilee: WindowKids, this is an amazingly beautiful region in Israel.  Many wonderful stories in the Bible have occurred here.  It was here that Jesus called the fishermen Peter and Andrew to be His disciples (The Bible, Matthew 4:18).  It was near the Sea of Galilee that Jesus healed the man who was deaf and mute (The Bible, Mark 7:31).  Who can forget when Jesus fed the crowd of 5,000? (The Bible, John 6:1). That miracle also happened near the Sea of Galilee!
