Bob just finished a whirlwind trip to Israel, and together with Gidon met a LOT of Israeli VIPs and made much progress in Root Source!

We will drill deeper over the next few weeks, describing some of our meetings, but for now we will just list [most of!] them:

Shlomo Kalish, founding partner of Jerusalem Global Ventures, one of Israel’s leading technology investment firms

Christine Darg and the 2016 Watchmen & Women on Walls New Year Intercessory Convocation

Dave Zwebner, CEO CommStock Trading Ltd., Ashkelon Properties, Christian-Jewish relations leader, and tour guide extraordinaire

Tim King, one of the founders of the ICEJ and currently Vice President of Administration, University of the Holy Land

Aviel Schneider, Publisher of Israel Today magazine

Dave and Lesley Richardson, good friends in Jerusalem, Dave wrote the classic love song Wildflower

Trey Graham, lead pastor at First Melissa Church, Texas with his group of first and veteran visitors to Israel

Becky Brimmer and Cheryl Hauer of Bridges For Peace

The Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, as well as nearly a dozen Knesset members (!)

Josh Reinstein, Director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus

Pastor David Decker, our very good friend at Covenantal Alliances

Merv and Merla Watson, pioneer Christian Zionists

Rabbi Tuly Weisz, Publisher of Breaking Israel News

Rabbi Dov Ben Shor of the nascent Sanhedrin

Whew! And all that is not counting the meetings we had with our Root Source teachers, and of course the time we had working alone, just the two of us!

We thank you for your prayers and are overjoyed to be putting in this effort for our Root Source members and students.

Here is the last video we produced during the trip, it is a little longer than the three minutes limit that Gidon usually likes, but maybe you will like it too!

    Is this a fulfillment of the prophecy in Isaiah ch65 verse24-And it shall come to pass, that before they call I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Todah Rabah.

    Hello Gidon, My own “pet” term for what you have called a “God Moment” is a “providential serendipity”. Serendipity has become one of my favorite words. One way of explaining it is the act of finding something unexpected while in the pursuit of something else. My whole life has been a providential string of serendipities, each one adding to and compounding the previous ones. Two of those serendipities are two books. One is “The Two Fears” by Chris Poblete. The tag line is “You can fear God…or everything else”.

    About the same time I got a magazine which I had subscribed to which had an article which stated that the most oft repeated command in the Bible is “fear not”. That is the flip side of fearing God, but of course not being afraid.

    The second book (which had set on my shelf unread for years) was an audio CD copy which I ran across and bought. I have listened to it some five or six times. It is the relatively short classic by A. W. Tozer entitled “The Knowledge of the Holy”. It is a book on the attributes of God, but it is a book of worship not a theological text.
    These two books have had a greater impact on me in the last couple years than I can probably express. I grew up a horribly intimidated introvert. Essentially all of the intimidation is gone now thanks to God’s leading through a whole series of providential serendipities.

    Finding Root Source itself by the way was another one since “Israel First” was one of those pop up teasers on Amazon that I checked out which led me to the web site. It may have popped up because I had gotten two of Jonathan Cahn’s books. As I remember finding the “Harbinger” was a providential serendipity.

    I surely don’t believe in the myth of the biogenesis of the digitally encoded information and control codes that are the basis for all life on this planet. Life is not an accident. As the Apostle Paul says in Romans 8:28, “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” That verse does not say, however, that all THINGS themselves are good.
