More than 200 Evangelical Christians are expected to arrive in Israel on Tuesday for the “Jerusalem Assembly,” a three-day marathon of events, celebrating 40 years of the reunification of Jerusalem. The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) partnered with the Texas-based Christian Covenant Alliances to put on the event.
“Celebrating the nearly forty years since the reunification of Jerusalem, Covenant Alliances will bring a delegation of more than two hundred Christian Zionist leaders for the US, Canada, England Africa and Israel who will highlight their love and dedication to the State of Israel," the statement said.
It added that “top Evangelical pastors will take this opportunity to present a love letter to Israel,” a document pledging their ‘undying love’ for the Jewish people.”
The group would also present a ‘Letter of Repentance’ asking forgiveness for the crimes committed by Christians against the Jews throughout history.
- The letter said, “On behalf of millions of Christians who love Israel and pray for her, we would like to repent before you for crimes committed against the Jewish people throughout history in the name of Christianity. We have sinned against God and against you.” The letter will be presented to Knesset (parliament) Members Benny Elon, Gilad Erdan and Orit Noked and to the Knesset Christians Allied Caucus. (Israel Today, 3/27/07)Offer praise to our King of Kings and our Lord of Lords that this day has arrived. Give thanks, too, for the many others who have participated in similar events over the past years. Now that an act of repentance and reconciliation is being offered between Christian and Jew, the door is open to greater works in the days ahead. Praise God!
