The saddest day on the Hebrew calendar is known as Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of the month of Av, when Israel lost its central national shrine, the holy Temple, twice on the same day 490 years apart!
The cold-blooded murder of millions of Jews and their exile, persecutions and pogroms, to the four corners of the world, are mourned on this day.
Yet Zechariah the prophet predicted this day of mourning will be turned to joy! For many decades, I’ve believed that part of the prophesied miraculous turning to joy will be facilitated when Christians humble ourselves and repent for the many atrocities that have been committed against Jews by Christendom.
We watchmen upon Jerusalem’s walls are living in special times of the restoration of all things.
Yet it is “no secret or surprise,” says Bob O’Dell, co-founder of Root Source, “that relations between Christians and Jews have not been good, to say the least, for close to 2,000 years.”
“We the undersigned recognize the long and horrific history of antisemitic atrocities committed against Jews in the name of Christ. We repent for these actions, pray to God to continue turning the hearts of Christians to true love for His Chosen People, and submit this declaration to the representative of Israel and the Jewish People.”
I will sign. Glenda Battershell
I will sign in shameful acknowledgement of how the church has demonised God’s chosen people.
We owe the Jewish people so much I’m so sorry for how our forefathers treated you
I feel we.are already reconciled, the Jews we owe them so much, for all the technological advances and sciencetifical Discovery’s , medical advances, and you wouldn’t believe how many every day items we in the west use everyday, hundreds of thousands, but the political correctness society won’t give credit to the Israeli’s for fear of upsetting the Muslims. May God Bless Israel.
Thank you for addressing this issue. I will do my part and encourage others to action.
I will sign. Brasilian government does’t represent me.
I will sign and continually thank our God and Israel for leading the Nations to the only true God.
I will sign. The Govt has not responded to countless testimonies and the church has not taught about Israel and only the Lord can melt their hearts I join with many in the UK who have and do support Israel. I am thankful that the truth of Jesus teaching have been greatly enlarged by the dedication of our Israeli Christian friends from their Jewish heritage, discernment and understanding of the Holy Word Of God, Lord give the Increase Amen
