JUNE 4, 2017
Christians United for Israel Sunday is an opportunity for Christians around the world to unite in prayer and action in support of Israel.
Just as Israel is the apple of God’s eye, Jerusalem has always been the heart of Israel. The City of David is precious to the Jews and beloved by Christians as the center of our spiritual inheritance. When Israel was reborn in 1948, Jordan attacked and took control of East Jerusalem. But during the 1967 Six Day War, Israeli paratroopers liberated the Old City and restored Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount and the Western Wall for the first time in 2000 years. God gave Israel back its heart, just as He promised He would. In 2017 we rejoice in Jerusalem’s Jubilee as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Zion’s restoration.
