A few weeks ago a bill was introduced by two ultra-Orthodox Members of Knesset that aimed to outlaw anyone from sharing the Gospel in Israel, and that violators would be punished with prison sentences.
The proposed bill was threatening to the very existence of local congregations in Israel, and to us as believers in Yeshua in the land. And with Christians being Israel’s biggest supporters and friends, it was a bill that was targeting not just freedom of faith in Israel, but jeopardizing our lifelong friendship with Christians all around the world.
The power of unity and collective prayer in the body of Christ is amazing!
The overwhelming outpouring of support and prayer that was raised truly tipped the scale and changed everything.
A few days ago, prime minister Netanyahu issued a clear statement, saying: “We will not advance any law against the Christian community.”
With that, the bill was halted and will not move forward.
Thank you for your prayers!
