It’s a remarkable time for the nation of Israel.

The year 2017 is full of anniversaries and commemorations for the Jewish state. It is the 50th anniversary of the retaking of Jerusalem, the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which set in motion the plan which led to statehood, and the 70th anniversary of the U.N.’s approval of the plan that returned Israel to statehood after almost two millennia.

And now, you can experience the living miracle of Israel during one of the most remarkable times in history.

But time is running out.

The 2017 WND Israel Tour is filling up. The tour will take place from November 2-12, 2017, and will be led by WND founders Joseph and Elizabeth Farah. Because of unprecedented demand, the previous cutoff for registrations on July 2 has been extended. However, there is now a new problem – flight prices are set to increase on Monday, July 31.

This means it is absolutely critical for anyone thinking about joining this extraordinary pilgrimage to act right now and register – before prices increase and before it’s entirely too late to come. Call Coral Tours at 1-866-267-2511 or go to WNDIsraelTour.com so you don’t miss this opportunity!

And why should believers come?

Mark Biltz, the author of “God’s Day Timer” and the discoverer of the “Blood Moons” phenomenon, argues extraordinary signs in the heavens show incredible events are on the way for Israel and the world.

The pastor says seeing the sacred locations described in Scripture and walking in the literal footsteps of Messiah can have a life-changing effect on Christians. For those looking to radicalize their faith and recharge their spiritual energy, a trip to the Holy Land isn’t a vacation or an indulgence, but a pilgrimage and a necessity.

“It is vital for all believers to go at least once to the Promised Land,” Biltz told WND. “It will radically change your life and your biblical perspective. This year could be one of the most prophetically charged years in history!”

Biltz also urged the Jewish state to stop trying to satisfy a hostile international community and instead stand up in defense of itself.

“I would hope that this would be the year the nation of Israel would finally stand up for righteousness’ sake and finally not worry about the opinions of the nations of the world,” he told WND. “Israel should be more concerned with what God thinks.”

Of course, the man who more than any other will determine the future of Israeli policy is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – and he, along with U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, is an invited guest speaker for the tour. This is a priceless chance not just to live out your faith but learn firsthand about the geopolitics of the most important region in the world.

WND Tours to Israel are utterly unique. Over the last four years, the founders of WND.com have led some 1,200 people in tours of the Holy Land, with many rapturous travelers joining the program again every single year. And you will see sights and experience events no other tour can offer.

You will also have the opportunity to hear a lecture from WND founder Joseph Farah, author of the new book “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.” Farah explains the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith, reveals the Bible’s continued emphasis on the coming Millennial Kingdom and provides an entirely fresh look at the exciting promises contained within Scripture. And you can experience this incredible intellectual journey in the very place where the Millennial Kingdom will be established!

Experience the miracle. It’s one of the most important anniversaries in Israel’s history – and this will be an experience unlike any other. Fulfill the dream of generations by embarking on a pilgrimage to Israel. Join us on the 2017 WND Israel Tour led by Joseph Farah. It’s a life changing experience – and, more than ever, one you can’t afford to miss!

IsraelThree

After breakfast, visit Sepphoris, an ancient city and its wealth of beautiful artifacts (over 60 mosaics!). Sepphoris was site of the largest construction project in Israel in the first century. Because of its proximity to Nazareth, it is certainly possible that Joseph and Messiah, as carpenters, may have helped to build it. At Kibbutz Misgav (the northernmost kibbutz in Israel), stand on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, see the Hula Valley and the Good Fence. At the northern shore walk, the ancient city of Capernaum, the town where Messiah ministered and drew His disciples (Matthew 4:13). Visit the excavation of the House of the Apostle Peter and the Ancient Synagogue of Capernaum. For lunch you will be able to experience the St. Peter fish (tilapia) from the Sea of Galilee. Continue to Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). At Kibbutz Ginnosar study the ancient 1st-century, wooden fishing-boat, the “Jesus Boat,” excavated from the mud floor of the lake and now on display in the museum dedicated to its preservation. At sundown, cruise the Sea of Galilee under the stars, worshiping the Lord in song – one of the most memorable evenings of your tour.

Dinner and overnight: Return to your hotel in Tiberius, near the Sea of Galilee.

Day 5 • November 6 – Monday:

Magdala – Tel Dan – Caesarea Philippi – Golan Heights – Yardenit, Jordan River

Your first stop today will be at Migdal (Magdala), the home of Mary Magdalene. Visit the extraordinary archeological find recently discovered during construction of a hotel – the village’s first century synagogue! As Jesus visited the synagogues all around Galilee, he was likely standing on the very stones at this site! Then, drive north again to Tel Dan, an important biblical city and a breathtaking Nature Reserve. The Bible mentions the city a few times: “From Dan to Beer Sheba,” indicating the full length of the kingdom of Israel. Continue to Banias, site of the ancient Caesarea Philippi. It is here that Peter made his confession of faith in Jesus (Matthew 16:13). View the waterfall. Continue on for a panoramic view of the Sea of Galilee from Mt. Bental in the strategically vital Golan Heights. End the day at the baptismal site Yardenit in a special baptism in the waters of the Jordan River (baptism optional).

Dinner and Overnight: Return to your hotel in Tiberias, on the Sea of Galilee.

Day 6 • November 7 – Tuesday:

Gideon Spring (Ein Harod) – Tree Planting – Abraham’s Well – Dead Sea

Embark on a journey from the Galilee of northern Israel to the wilderness of the Negev in the south. First stop, Ein Harod – Gideon Springs, the site of the selection of 300 from Gideon’s 22,000 warriors as the fighting force God would use to defeat the Midianites (Judges 7: 1-25). Drive to the western slopes of the hills of Judea, near the biblical city of Modin, the very town in which the Maccabean revolt against the Greeks was born. Here, you will be able to take part of prophecy by planting a tree in the Holy Land at Neot Kdumim: “When you come to the Land, you shall plant trees” (Leviticus 19: 23). Continue to Beersheba and explore the water cistern and Abraham’s Well (if time permits). Your final destination of the day will be a beautiful resort on the Dead Sea where you will have the opportunity for an afternoon to “float” in the sea, relax on the beach or by the pool or enjoy a spa treatment.

View the tremendous scale model of the city of Jerusalem modeled to reflect the state of the city 2,000 years ago.

For the first time, WND Tours offers time to explore the world-famous Machne Yehuda market (the shuk) – feel like a native Israeli as you walk the aisles of this huge local market: spices, nuts, seeds, baked goods, locally grown fruit and vegetables, wines, and Israeli wares. Sample the delicious cuisines: Israeli, Ethiopian, Arabic and more. Watch sesame seeds being ground by a mill into delicious Tahini, Israel’s beloved condiment. Later, you’ll take in Ben Yehuda Street, named after the man whose life-long passion was responsible for reviving the Hebrew language (fulfilling prophecy). This charming street, blocked from automobile traffic, is packed with quaint shops and restaurants, a perfect place to find gifts for your friends and family.

Dinner and Overnight: return to your hotel in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem

Gather in charming St. Anne’s Church, the acoustics of which will make your heart soar while listening to and joining pilgrims from around the world who come to sing hymns in this 12th century church. Reflect on our Savior’s ordeal while standing on the very paving stones where Messiah was taken before Pilate. Walk the streets of the Old City and through the Ancient Cardo to the Jewish Quarter. Approach the holiest site in the Jewish world and pray at the Western Wall. Enjoy the privilege of bringing in the biblical Sabbath in Jerusalem with a special service on the actual Steps of the Temple where Messiah Himself walked.
