“We declare the establishment of a Jewish State.”

“We declare the establishment of a Jewish state”  Rev. Mike Evans

Dear Rev. Robert

Sixty eight years ago today (on the Jewish calendar), the first Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, declared the rebirth of an ancient nation dead for nearly 2,000 years. Such a thing had never happened before in human history…but God’s prophetic Word is never broken, and Israel was reborn just as He promised. The Israeli Declaration of Independence ends with these words:

ACCORDINGLY WE, MEMBERS OF THE PEOPLE’S COUNCIL, REPRESENTATIVES OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF ERETZ-ISRAEL AND OF THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT, ARE HERE ASSEMBLED ON THE DAY OF THE TERMINATION OF THE BRITISH MANDATE OVER ERETZ-ISRAEL AND, BY VIRTUE OF OUR NATURAL AND HISTORIC RIGHT AND ON THE STRENGTH OF THE RESOLUTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY, HEREBY DECLARE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A JEWISH STATE IN ERETZ-ISRAEL, TO BE KNOWN AS THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

PLACING OUR TRUST IN THE “ROCK OF ISRAEL”, WE AFFIX OUR SIGNATURES TO THIS PROCLAMATION AT THIS SESSION OF THE PROVISIONAL COUNCIL OF STATE, ON THE SOIL OF THE HOMELAND, IN THE CITY OF TEL-AVIV, ON THIS SABBATH EVE, THE 5TH DAY OF IYAR, 5708 (14TH MAY,1948).
The next day, Israel’s first war began when massed Arab armies poured across the borders of the new nation to try to destroy it. And that effort continues today. Terrorist groups and nations alike are united by their evil hatred of the Jewish people…but together we can win the spirit war for Israel’s future.

Together, we are hard at work on building the Friends of Zion Heritage Center, both as a wall of defense for Israel and the Jewish people in the spirit war that is raging, and as a headquarters for practical outreach to meet the needs of the poor of the house of Israel, especially the poor elderly Holocaust survivors. We need your help today.
