**NEW - Messianic Calendar - In Stock**
Our Chosen People Ministries’ Messianic Jewish Art Calendar this year includes the photography of Linnea LeBreton, a current student of the Charles L. Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies, and a talented artist.
These images capture hidden moments and touching details of the Israeli people as they go about their life and work that one rarely sees from a “tourist perspective.” Peaceful landscapes will take you to the Sea of Galilee, the quiet majesty of David's Tower, and much more! As we continue to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of Israel, these photos will inspire you to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and see Israel in a new way.
The Jewish people were seen as a diaspora people, and some thought that it would always be this way. After the tragic events of the Holocaust, it was clear that my people needed a nation to call home. Settling into the land was not without difficulty, especially in the beginning years, but Israel has survived despite every obstacle, and thrived. The modern state of Israel is a great joy to those of us who love Jesus, believe the Bible, and affirm God’s plan for the Jewish people. It is hard to believe that modern Israel was established such a short time ago. Israel’s existence is an answer to the prayers of Jewish people and Christians worldwide, and is a signpost of God’s faithfulness to His covenants and promises.
Until the twentieth century, most people never thought that the Jewish people would return to Israel, our historic and biblical homeland. Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, as Psalm 122 instructs, means that we are praying for the end of terror and missile attacks, the end of the hostility that exists between Israelis and Palestinians, and the return of the Messiah. Perhaps most importantly, we are asking for the Lord to bring personal peace to those who live in the Holy Land by accepting Jesus, the Prince of Peace, as their Messiah and Lord. “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:27).
We hope that these images and accompanying texts and scriptures encourage you and speak to your heart as you go about your life this year, following the Lord as you face both difficulties and joys, valleys and mountaintops. Each one of our days is set before us, and I pray that you experience the presence and joy of the Lord in every one.
