Greetings and Grace to All!

I have an interesting and exciting opportunity to send your way today...

Right now I am in the process of planning a Bible Pilgrimage unlike anything I've ever done or been a part of before.

Now I have led literally dozens of trips to Israel, as well as several "Footsteps of Paul" journeys to The Mediterranean.

But this trip we are planning will combine both on one trip!

For most of the trip we will be aboard a Celebrity Cruise Ship (with each cabin having its own private balcony).

We will be sharing and teaching in Rome, Athens, Corinth, and Malta.

Then sailing over to Turkey and taking in the amazing and moving site of Ephesus.

That will be followed by cruising down to Haifa, Israel to take in the Sea of Galilee region, after which we will set sail southward and spend our last 5 days / 4 nights in Jersusalem at the absolutely incomparable King David Hotel overlooking the Old City.

The entire trip will take us 18 days (October 19 - November 5).

We will be limiting this Pilgrimage to ninety folks, so if this is something that is of interest to you, you'll need to move quickly!

You can request all the info by clicking on the following link:

I would love to have you aboard on this journey of a lifetime!

Shalom in Yeshua,

Jon


Daily Devotional
June 24
 
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Exodus 20:8–11
 
Having worked four hundred years as slaves in Egypt, the concept of a day off would have sounded radical indeed to the children of Israel. And not to them only, but to the surrounding civilizations as well, for no other society of antiquity entertained the idea of a Sabbath day - a day of rest.

With the Assyrians bearing down on them, the children of Israel set up an alliance with the Egyptians, failing to realize that it was only in God that their help would be found. Ever feel like financial, relational, or physical problems are waging war against you? Ever feel like you can’t get ahead or even catch up? Listen to what God says . . .

For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. - Isaiah 30:15, 21

The bills are mounting; the pressures are building; the Assyrians are coming. What am I to do? It’s only in returning to God and resting in Him that I’ll know. If I consistently take one day of every seven and say, “This is Yours, Lord,” I am saying, “Lord, I acknowledge that what I have and enjoy is not because of my work ethic, my creativity, my business acumen, my energy. It’s all from You. And I’m going to prove that to myself and to my family by stopping one day in seven. In so doing, I am acknowledging that You are the giver of every good gift, the provider of the bread I enjoy, that You are the One who truly holds my life together.”

If I keep the Sabbath, I’ll know which way to go as I hear a voice in my ear telling me how to walk. I’ll experience a fullness in my heart, a richness in my soul. And so will you.
