Our Biblical Mandate
Over forty years ago the founders of ICEJ received a clear mandate from Scripture to be a ‘ministry of comfort’ to Israel and the Jewish people, based on the command in Isaiah 40:1 “Comfort, comfort My people says your God”. We recognize the biblical significance of all of Jerusalem and its unique connection with the Jewish people. The restoration of the State of Israel and God’s faithfulness to keep His ancient covenant with the Jewish people continues to be demonstrated today.
In Scripture, we are directed to “bless” Israel (Genesis 12:3), and to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6). In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul also encourages Gentile Christians to “show mercy” to the Jewish people (Romans 11:31-32), adding that we are indebted to them for all the spiritual blessings we have received through Israel (Romans 15:26-27).
A Message from our Director
Thank you for visiting our website. I pray it will encourage and inspire your faith.
We are living in some of the most exciting times in history, and we have the opportunity to partner with God to see biblical prophecy fulfilled. Join with us to comfort, pray and stand with Israel to bless the Jewish people as we build relationships between Christians, Jews, Arabs and minority groups through our ICEJ AID, ALIYAH and ADVOCACY divisions.
