FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
As Christians, we are deeply rooted in the Jewish faith. Jesus was a Jew; the disciples were Jews and many of the great patriarchs were Jews. Our Jewish history cannot be denied.
The Branch of Life Christian Fellowship is standing with our brothers and sisters in Israel and all over the world, as they face war, hardship, suffering, and anti-semitism of all kinds. Genesis 12:3 says, 'I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you," in speaking to Abraham and the Jewish people. We will be praying for and supporting the nation of Israel in tangible ways and speak out in their defense against the evil they face.
The Jewish people have given Christianity so much. We have received the Word of God, the first followers of Jesus and the prophets. Jesus said in John 4:22, "For salvation is of the Jews." Support of our Jewish brothers and sisters is not an option for the Christians, but a command. And we will be blessed because of it.
If you would like to join us in our support of Israel and the Jewish people, please contact our church office for further information at 239-464-4803. We will be delighted to send you information on what you can do to make a difference.
"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." Psalm 122:6
May God richly bless you and your family!
