Dear Tabernacle Family,
I hope you are planning to join me and members of the Christian and Jewish communities this evening, starting at 6:00pm at Resurrection Life for “Buffalo Celebrates Israel!”
Pastor John Tonelli, and the wonderful congregation at Resurrection Life, will be hosting this special evening as we gather to demonstrate our solidarity with the Jewish people, join in a wonderful celebration of the Nation of Israel, and express our commitment to Judeo-Christian values that are under assault in our day.
This “Night to Honor Israel” will feature uplifting anthems, powerful worship and other special presentations. Among our many honored guests, our keynote speaker will be Rabbi Jon Hausman from Congregation Ahavath Torah in Stoughton, Massachusetts. You won’t want to miss his amazing insights and challenge to the people of God in this hour.
Beloved, Israel is facing great challenges in the world right now and it is important that you add your voice to those in our region who are expressing Jesus’ heart for His covenant people. Recently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted that Evangelical Christians are “Israel’s best friends.” Speaking to a large Evangelical gathering in Washington, Netanyahu declared, “America has no better friend than Israel, and Israel has no better friend than America.” Then, referring to those in the audience, he continued, “And Israel has no better friend in America than you!”
Wow! As Christians we are absolutely humbled by the Prime Minister’s statement and deeply challenged to demonstrate the truth of these words. I’m asking each of us to prioritize this once-a-year evening and honor the Lord and His ancient covenant people as we gather together. Your presence in this evening’s service will go a long way in communicating Jesus’ love to the members of the Jewish Community.
I’m looking forward to seeing you this evening at Resurrection Life!
Bishop Robert Stearns
