CAESAREA BY THE SEA
What a moving day we had on our first day. Standing in the same place where Paul defended the Gospel before Agrippa. He was in changes but made a convincing argument. Agrippa responded to him, almost you persuaded me to be a Christian. Paul was them sent on a ship to Rome. We had a teaching session in the same place about the seven Herod in the Bible. That was just the beginning of the Day.
We then went to Mount Carmel where Elisha challenged the prophets of Baal. The place where he called down fire from heaven to prove that Jehovah Shammah is always there (presents). Jehovah is the one true God who answers by fire. What a moment it was as I stood there overlooking the Valley of Megiddo located in the Jezreel Valley. The moment when the reality of the final war and the practicality of the war registered. The valley is a vast area of land and is prepared for the last showdown at the end of this life. This is where the battle of Armageddon will be fought.
The reality of the Bible came alive today. The trip to Nazareth was just amazing. We stopped at the Synagogue Church. This was the place that Jesus when and read from Isiah 61:1 & 2, referenced in Luke 4:16. It is said that the floors are the same floors that were there in Jesus’ time. What a moment of worship we had and following the reading from Luke 4:16. We left that location and went down through Nazareth to the Church of the Annunciation. This is believed to be the place where Gabriel told Mary she was going to be the mother of Jesus. Wow!! What a moment to stand in the location of this great revelation. We moved from there to the Mount Precipice. At this location, the Bible told us that the people of Nazareth tried to throw Jesus off the Cliff, but a miracle took place, and Jesus escaped without harm.
We ended our day with a one hour drive into Tiberius at the Sea of Galilee.
Food was excellent and all you can eat! The fellowship was enjoyable and refreshing. The teaching was enlightening and inspiring.
Day 2 is coming…
