Embassy move: “When and how” (CIDI)

Vice President Mike Pence told a New York crowd that “President Trump is actively considering when and how to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.”

And because of friends like YOU, Christians in Defense of Israel is fully engaged in pressuring the White House to make the move. Yesterday we delivered our “Move the U.S. Embassy” petitions with 67,025 signers to the White House and to congressional leaders on Capitol Hill. 

+ + The “hand of heaven” is on Israel

While commemorating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ vote leading to the reestablishment of Israel after 2,000 years, Vice President Pence strongly affirmed U.S.- Israel relations and acknowledged the “hand of heaven” in the restoration of the Jewish state:

“America stands with Israel because her cause is our cause. Her values are our values. And her fight is our fight. We stand with Israel because we believe in right over wrong, good over evil, freedom over tyranny.While Israel was built by human hands, it’s impossible not to see the hand of heaven here.”

This is what we also know to be true …

The biblical and historical connection of the land of Israel (including Jerusalem) to the Jewish people is undisputable. The archaeological evidence–especially within Jerusalem–is overwhelming.

Israel is not an occupier of disputed territories but the rightful possessor of the land. This small part of the world is a beacon of hope for democracy and freedom in the Middle East.

+ + Help Christians in Defense of Israel advance our powerful pro-Israel initiatives!

As you know, God has opened great doors for us in Washington and Israel to defend the Jewish state and foster strong U.S.-Israel relations. While this is a powerful mission, we cannot do it without your support. It’s only because of friends like you that our pro-Israel voice can be heard loudly and clearly.

And the need to speak out on Israel’s behalf is urgent. Ugly anti-Semitism dominates the Middle East. You and I must stand in the gap for God’s chosen people.

Because you are a friend of Christians in Defense of Israel, I need to share with you an urgent financial need.

We closed out November with a five thousand dollar deficit–a shortfall far shy of our monthly need and one we are now carrying into December. These funds are critical to effectively defending Israel on Capitol Hill and elsewhere. 

Will you prayerfully consider what you can do to help?

Click here to help meet this immediate financial need as we advance our shared initiative to get the embassy moved to where it belongs and further the God-ordained mission of Christians in Defense of Israel.

Every gift of every size is greatly appreciated!

Thank you, in advance, for your support!

P.S. Because of friends like you, Christians in Defense of Israel delivered 67,025 petitions to the White House strongly encouraging President Trump to make good on his campaign promise and move the Embassy. But we’re only able to mount this campaign and others because friends like you give. Please donate generously!
