What motivates Christian Zionists? By Shelley Neese

What motivates Christian Zionists? 

By Shelley Neese 

I am a Christian. And I am a Zionist. But it took me years of being both to realize that I’m a Christian Zionist. Though I consider myself a strong Christian and a committed lover of Israel, out of college I was leery of calling myself a Christian Zionist. My definition of a Christian Zionist was unclear and muddled by stereotypes I had absorbed over time. 

Where I got those stereotypes is no mystery. Any time you hear interviews with prominent Christian Zionist leaders, certain questions are guaranteed to come up: 

“Gary Bauer from American Values, tell us why evangelicals are so eager for the apocalypse?” 

“Susan Michael from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, is church support for Israel merely a tool to convert the Jews?” 

“Earl Cox from Israel Always, do Christian Zionists only support Israel to realize the scenario of Armageddon?” 

The...

The Dead Sea Scrolls Monument By Shelley Neese

The Dead Sea Scrolls Monument  
By Shelley Neese 
 

In 1946 or 1947—no one knows for certain—a Bedouin goatherd nicknamed Muhammad the Wolf led his flock around the cliffs lining the northwest edge of the Dead Sea. As the livestock grazed on sparse vegetation, Muhammad wandered around the boulders. According to one of several variants of the account, he hurled a stone into a cave to startle a stray goat and heard pottery shatter. Too frightened to lower himself into the cave alone, he returned several days later with at least two relatives from his Ta’amireh tribe. Though they fantasized about finding gold and silver, instead they stumbled upon a cache of oddly shaped clay vessels with bowl shaped lids. Inside one jar, they discovered three ancient leather scrolls, intact and wrapped in linen. 

The Bedouin carted their scrolls back to their camp. The tribesmen stored the bundle in a goat skin bag and hung it from a tent pole....

Are YOU A Disciple-Maker?

"The whole world must see that Israel must exist and has the right to exist and is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world"  - Martin Luther King Jr. 

God has called us ALL to be disciple-makers! Paul instructs ALL men of Christ to enter the mission of Jesus Christ and to be an active member of His army, "You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others." (2 Timothy 2:1-2). 

Esthers, you are not alone in his army of Modern-Day Esthers. We are standing with you. We are being trained by God to lead others to spread His word and to glorify His Kingdom. We have been called to create D I S C I P L E S. 

As we celebrate the memory of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., let us take on the spirit of the early church and be active disciples for Jesus. Dr. King preached,...

Experience the miracle of Christmas!

 

"Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men, I bring you good news of great joy to everyone." These are the words the angels said over the hills outside of the town of Bethlehem when they announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds.  That first Christmas is the reason we live with purpose... The precious baby in the manger was proof that God loved us.  

Experiencing a meaningful Christmas is not decorating your home, buying more gifts or taking your children or grandchildren to visit Santa. It is putting Christ first, focusing on what matters most, and then sharing that love with others. 

This Christmas celebration can be a time to be still and reflect on the love that God has for us, and then find a way to share that love with others.   

Jesus is the greatest gift of all! Once that amazing love has been placed in us, (Romans 5:5) we now have full capacity to love like Christ.  It is love that allows us to...

Today’s Mitzvah Monday Challenge: Teach a child how to give joy and be joyful!

Watch this short video about a remarkable little boy who, with the support of his mother, delivered both flowers and loving hugs to seniors in a local nursing home as his New Year’s resolution.  

This adorable six year old clearly understood the impact he was making on these nursing home residents, many of whom were isolated and challenged by memory issues.  He was not being coached to be “cute;” rather, he was truly joyful in presenting bouquets of flowers and hugging and kissing these grateful seniors.  One man was so touched by the kindness of this child that he gently held him in his arms and cried – and this wonderful child fully welcomed the embrace for as long as this man wanted this closeness.  

Children come into this world innocently – as blank slates - capable of learning how to love and how to hate.  What better way to teach Christ-like love by providing our children and grandchildren the opportunity to be a Mitzvah...
