Walk the Walls of Jerusalem with us. A Video for You!

A few months ago we had an opportunity to walk the ramparts on the walls of Jerusalem.

The Walls of Jerusalem

This was a profoundly moving time as we prayed for each quarter of Jerusalem (JewishMuslimArmenianChristian).

In 2018, Israel will celebrate 70th anniversary of the Founding of the State of Israel. We’ll walk the walls again.

Would you like to join us?

What an amazing time to visit Jerusalem and to pray! We’ll do just that during Break Forth Israel & Jordan NEXT Level 2018.

Elsa taking a break along the walk. We won’t rush you.

Please take a look below at a short video we shot while walking the walls just 4 months ago.

If you’re not signed up yet, we’d love to invite you, your friends, your church and your family to join us on this most historic year.

For your free brochure, just email us here.

In Christ,
Arlen, Elsa & Hans

PS – The tour is almost sold out, even though it’s 7 months from now.

006 Podcast: Visiting Tel Dan, where the Northern Golden Calf was worshipped

Path leading to the Golden Calf

Each one of us has been given a free will from God. We are not robots. We can choose God’s wisdom and see the blessings or we can choose our own way and face the natural consequences of this choice.

In today’s podcast, we travel back in time 3,000 years to learn lessons that Solomon and those who came after him had to learn the hard way.

Perhaps when you think of Israel you only think of desert or the Mediterranean or the rolling hills along the Galilee. But, if you head into Northern Israel, you come to the Tel Dan Nature Reserve.

Stark photo we took of the Tel Dan altar location

Here, you can walk through verdant forests with the cascading waters where the mighty Jordan River begins.  Once you walk through the forest, you come to the ancient city of Leshem and then a little further, you come to the actual location where the golden calf in northern Israel was placed. It is a stirring and sobering experience.

That’s where this episode takes place.

A Heart-Warming Word from an Orthodox Rabbi

Let’s all admit it. We’re all tired of everyone ‘yelling’ at each other, whether it’s on Social Media, on the nightly news or in face to face violent protests.

Isn’t it time we listened to each other?

Watch this 2-minute, heart-warming video from our good friend, Moshe (Moses) who runs the Biblical Shop in the Old City of Jerusalem.

We think you’ll be encouraged:

Why don’t you join us in 2018 during Break Forth Israel & Jordan Next Level? We’ll get a chance to share with Moshe heart to heart when we’re in Jerusalem. We’re almost sold out. For your free brochure and all the details, please email us at info@breakforthjourneys.com

004: The World Changes in Caesarea By The Sea: Podcast

The Stunning View of the Mediteranean From the Theatre at Ceasarea Maritima

Today’s episode takes place in Israel in Herod the Great’s mighty harbor city of Caesarea Maritima, which is also known as Caesarea By The Sea. This message takes place on our second day in Israel.  Just before arriving at Caesarea By

This message takes place on our second day in Israel.  Just before arriving at Caesarea By The Sea, we have been in Jaffo where we heard about Peter’s call to the Gentiles. This message is a continuation of Peter’s journey. Right now, we’re sitting in the enormous theater as the wind blows in from the sea.

Caesarea By The Sea was a huge city in the first century. At the time it was the largest artificial harbor on an open sea anywhere in the world. The techniques used to build this harbor were marvels of engineering and construction at the time. It’s almost impossible to imagine the splendour of this harbor city. Just along the promenade alone, there were thousands of beautiful columns which had been imported from as far away as Aswan, Egypt. There were palaces, temples, and an enormous marketplace filled with exotic spices and trade goods from around the world.

Yet, as great as Caesarea By The Sea (Caesarea Maritima) was, it was no place for an observant Jew to be. Why is that? Well, listen on in to hear Hans as he shares why:

002: Jonah Meets Jaffa Podcast

Beautiful Jaffa Port: Where Jonah Fled From God

This message takes place in the morning of one of our group’s second days in Israel.  As we’ve left our tour buses, we pass by the most significant fountain and sculpture in Yaffo – it’s the one of the whale. We are reminded that this is the spot where Jonah fled from God.

As our guests sit in a little alcove in the beautiful city of Yaffo, we can see the Mediterranean in the distance, we hear birds singing around us, the leaves in the trees are rustling in the gentle breeze and our hearts are full of expectation for a message from God.

Listen on in as we hear a different perspective on the story of Jonah that helps us extend more grace to this often harshly criticized prophet. You may find that there is added grace for you as well as you journey through your weaknesses.
