Worldwide Christian Repentance on 9th of Av
|“Thus said the lord of Hosts: The fast of the fourth month, the fast of the fifth month, the fast of the seventh month, and the fast of the tenth month shall become occasions for joy and gladness, happy festivals for the House of Yehuda; but you must love honesty and integrity.” [Zechariah 8:19]
For many years the Lord has instructed the Jerusalem Channel and Exploits Ministry to be in Israel on the 9th of Av on the Jewish calendar as prophetic watchmen to pray for the Zechariah 8:19 prophecy to come to pass, that the time of Israel’s mourning and fasting will be turned into joy and feasting. YOU can join us by becoming one of those prophetic watchmen in the nations because:
Now the Root Source organization of Orthodox Jew Gidon Ariel and Christian Bob’Odell is actually planning a Christian event on the 9th of Av fast day in Jerusalem which this year will be August 10-11 2019. The intention is for the event to facilitate satellite repentance services simultaneously in the nations.
Much of the prayer activity will be based upon Root Source’s book called “The List,” the largest Christian book to date outlining the many atrocities perpetrated against the Jewish people, and a companion guide written by 40 Christian leaders including Sharon Sanders of Christian Friends for Israel, Tony Waller of Yovel and the Jerusalem Channel’s Christine Darg.
We recommend that Christian leaders in their localities acquire copies of the List and the companion guide, 40 Days of Repentance, with links below in order to organise similar events simultaneously in the nations 10-11 August 2019. For more information, click HERE.
|The LIST is a compilation of more than 800 atrocities committed by Christians, Christian nations, or in the name of Christ, against the Jews over the past two millennia. Never before has this amount of research been compiled into a single volume by Christians, for Christians.The LIST reveals the riveting truth about Christian involvement in not just the Holocaust, the Crusades and the Inquisition, but a massive collection of atrocities you may have never known about.
Besides its breadth of scope, The LIST goes deep as well. You will read Martin Luther’s antisemitic writings which were used as the blueprint for the Nazis during Kristallnacht in 1938. You will read portions of the anti-Jewish writings from our highly respected Church fathers. You will watch history unfold as the Jews are restricted, confined, and even blamed for natural disasters, paying with their freedom, their possessions, and ultimately their lives.
The LIST is well-researched, and is a reference source written without malice. Yet we challenge any reader to enter this book and not to leave it without great pause for ponder. Starting simply, The LIST will begin to pull you into its many stories, as the pace quickens and hatred rises. You will inevitably find yourself asking, “How could this have happened?” followed by “What now prevents its repetition?”
Along with other Christian contributors we write our observations and response prayers to the truth exposed in this volume in the highly-recommended companion volume: 40 Days of Repentance: A Companion Guide to The LIST, also published by Root Source. We pray that this pair of books fulfills for you the words of our Lord in John 8:31: that in “knowing the truth” it will indeed “set you free”.

40 DAYS OF REPENTANCE: A COMPANION GUIDE TO THE LIST
|If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept the punishment of their iniquity: Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.” Leviticus 26:40-42
What is the “iniquity of their fathers”? This passage has often been used by Christians as a prayer of repentance for generational sin in the family bloodline. But could it be that there is another dimension to that phrase? Could it be that the message for today is that it is time to apply these verses over the Church at large?
What IS The LIST? It is a very detailed view through the window of time into the sins of our Church forefathers committed against the Jewish people throughout Christian history. The LIST is comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and almost overwhelming in its scope in revealing the depth and depravity of the sins of our Church forefathers.
Reading through The LIST can be likened to attending a familiar and well-loved church for a long time, only to discover a staircase leading down to a previously unknown basement. As I walk down the stairs I am engulfed in darkness. What should I do? I could just go back upstairs and “ignore” the basement. Instead, I look for and find the light switch (that is, I read The LIST). With the basement now bathed in light, I realise that it is a chamber of horrors and torture that has been used against the Jewish people. In MY basement. Of MY church. It is now beteween me and the LORD to decide what I should do about this.About the 40 Days of Repentance ~ Companion Guide to The LIST.

That day’s meditation then closes with a prayer of repentance.This 40-day devotional can be used as a repentance prayer journey leading up to the 9th of Av or Yom Kippur, and is intended as a Companion Guide to “The LIST.”From the editorial team, it is our hope and prayer that readers will engage with the heart of the Father as each one begins a 40-day repentance prayer journey.
