1. church
David   (01.05.09)
This church is a strong counter-example, at long last, to the suggestion that all black churches are like that of the now-infamous Reverend Wright. I'm glad to hear of it. Perhaps Barack Obama was wrong, then, when he said that he could no more disown the likes of that idiot than disown the black community....
2. hmm pretty nice but difficult for me to
AY_Lamb ,   USA   (01.05.09)
trust those evangelicals. When they pray like that they are really praying for the "salvation" of Jews and the fulfillment of their "end time" dogma.
3. People of Bethel Gospel Assembly
Gil ,   Tel Aviv   (01.05.09)
Shalom and thanks for your prayers. Its an amazing and warm feeling to know that you are there for us. Wishing you all the best from Israel... Gil
4. Thank you!!
Yael ,   Tel Aviv   (01.05.09)
Thank you and may G-d watch over you as well. Our soldiers and civilians on the front lines certainly benefit from your thoughts and prayers.
5. Bishop Brown: Thank you for praying for Israel
Zvi   (01.05.09)
You are a true friend. I especially note your visit to Sderot.
6. # 2 - Fearing prayers
Dorothea Killus ,   Loerrach, Germany   (01.05.09)
Don't worry: It is H s S h e m who answers those prayers - the God of Israel who knows what his people needs!
7. AY_Lamb: Do you always spit on a hand extended to you ...
AK   (01.05.09)
or are you a Muslim troll trying to alienate people friendly to Israel. I have noticed a concerted effort by the anti-Semitic Left and Muslims alike to alienate Jews from the Christians friends and vice versa. It's not going to work, troll.
8. Thank you Friends!
Shalom   (01.05.09)

11. To a congregation in Harlem
robin ,   Israel   (01.05.09)
To Bishop Brown and the Bethel Gospel Assembly...Keep spreading your love. In these very dark days, it's nice to know there are still people out there we can call "friends". Thank you for being a friend.
12. Praying for Israel
Lesley ,   australia   (01.05.09)
Thousands of Christians constantly pray for the security and prosperity of Israel, me included.We know the scriptures as well as you and long for the prophecies to be fulfilled also.
13. Thank You, Bishop Brown
Faith ,   Israel   (01.05.09)
Personally, I don't care what the motives are, whether hoping for the Jews "salvation" or whatever - point is, these are good people. Bishop Carton Brown has done more to show support and understanding for Israel than many American Jews I know. He is an amazing human being, and I respect this man.

16. Those who bless Israel
Yehudi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.05.09)
The Torah says "those who bless the people of Israel shall themselves be blessed and those who curse Israel shall be cursed."
17. May God bless you
Yehudi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.05.09)
Dear Bishop Brown, may God bless you and congregation. On behalf of the Jewish people I extend to you our love.
18. Pope prayed for Cruseiders war that time too
Davis   (01.05.09)
He prayed too for american army fiting in Vietnam ...and in Guantanamo ....this dosen't mean that killing children or demolishing houses on fimillies will be remembered as a heroic act
19. # 12 JESUS: "Do not think that I came...
Norway   (01.05.09)
to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. Matthew 10:24 NKJ I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. Luke 12:49,51 NKJ JEWISH SCRIPTURES: If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them, then I will give your rains in their season, and the land shall yield her produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time, and ye shall eat your bread until ye have enough, AND DWELL IN YOUR LAND SAFELY. AND I (HaShem) WILL GIVE PEACE IN THE LAND, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid, and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand, AND YOUR ENEMIES SHALL FALL BEFORE YOU BY THE SWORD. Ye shall keep My sabbaths, and reverence My sanctuary: I am HaShem. Leviticus 26:3-8,2, Isaiah 56:6-8 LEVITICUS 26: Begins with the idyllic blessings that await the Jewish people if they live up to their covenant with God, and then proceeds to the admonition a sobering account of punishments, frustrations, AND CURSES THAT WILL RESULT FROM ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY THE COVENANT. Indeed, though God's underlying mercy prevents all of these curses from befalling Israel in any one unbearable instant, a careful reading of Jewish history, and perhaps the twentieth century in particular - shows that they have taken place at various intervals, before and during the exiles. THE BLESSINGS ARE GIVEN IN GENERAL TERMS, (Deut. 28:1-14, Lev. 26:1-13), THE CURSES, HOWEVER, ARE GIVEN IN GREAT DETAILS, (Deut. 28:15-68, Lev. 26:14-43) because they are intended to awe the people into obedience to God's will. By climaxing the blessings with that of peace, the Torah teaches that peace is equivalent to all the other blessings combined (Rashi, Sifra). (Lev. 26:6) Lev. 26:14-43: These horrendous punishments are meant not as revenge, but to influence people to repent, and for that reason they are inflicted in stages of increasing severity. If the first stage comes and Israel does not derive the desired lesson, the next and more severe stage of punishments will befall them, UNTIL REPENTANCE AND GOD'S MERCY FINALLY COME! And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear night and day, and shalt have no assurance of thy life. In the morning thou shalt say: 'Would it were even!' and at even thou shalt say: 'Would it were morning!' for the fear of thy heart which thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. Deut. 28:66-67 Conditions will become worse and worse, until even the anguish of yesterday will seem preferable to the suffering of today (Rashi).
20. That's really cool!!!
Talula ,   Israel   (01.05.09)
We've got the brothers in the USA supporting us! O happy day, that fixed my choice On Thee, my Savior and my God! Well may this glowing heart rejoice, And tell its raptures all abroad. Happy day, happy day, When Jesus washed my sins away! He taught me how to watch and pray, And live rejoicing every day: Happy day, happy day, When Jesus washed my sins away! O happy bond, that seals my vows To Him Who merits all my love! Let cheerful anthems fill His house, While to that sacred shrine I move.
21. to #2
ilan ,   ashkelon   (01.05.09)
when all the world are againsts us we should be thankful that there are those who dont hate grateful..these evangelicals have done more than you in helping the country..most of the bomb sheletrs in sederot are funded by them,during the gaza pull out they offered not financila assistance but also their time and prayers for the jews.there are so much more that they have done,too long too discuss there..they will encourage u to believe in jesus,but u dnt have to if u dnt want to,they wont hurt u like the arabs!to all d evangelicals,thanks u 4 everything!
22. evangelicals
Brian ,   United States   (01.05.09)
AY-Lamb. Try getting over your difficulty. Evangelicals support Israel because they believe that Israel has God's support. They are unwavering and should be thanked. In regards to their belief in the "end of days" - why should it matter to you? If you belief in universal peace when the Messiah comes, what does it matter if it is His first or second time?
23. Thank you, Harlem
jorge costa ,   lisboa   (01.05.09)
24. Never cease to pray...
nikki   (01.05.09)
AK so true. thank you. Every day I come to ynet to see what is going on in Israel. I am a christian. I am not an enemy. Anyone who reads the scriptures know the covenant between Abraham and God. Anyone who tells me differently, is blinded by the worlds view and does not know God. Its the jews land- read it. You dont steal what God gives to His children. The sadness I have is that His children gave Gaza away (from the pressure of us- i am sorry) and to ones that desire their demise. There is no peace treaties with the evil one. Israel we do pray for you, that God gives you the strength to stand firm, not listen to the world, who's view is what they see on tv and you know how one-sided that is. You are defending God's land. I have seen some harsh jewish replies to christians on here. But that is just a few. It doesnt stop me from caring about them. My friends and pastors who have visited Israel loved it. It is something they will never forget. Someday I would like to go. Peace be with you.
25. A heart warming story
Neil Turner ,   Watford, UK   (01.05.09)
It is wonderful to hear that Christians are prayerfully supporting Israel at this time. Please be assured that many Christians in the UK feel the same way, and uphold the people of Israel in prayer. DOn't be mislead by the media reporting. The 20,000 in London on Saturday were in the manin part fanatical Islamists and members of the hard-left. Most Brits, even those without a strong Christian faith, support your actions at this time I have prayed for Gilad Shalit every day since he was captured, and believe he will be recovered. May the Lord bless you and keep you
26. you dont need that
Observer ,   Palestine   (01.05.09)
You have all these weapons of mass destruction!!!! against few guys with light guns and civilians, youll win on the ground i swear without any prayers, but you proved that you are a bunch of cowards with no morals at all : ) along with the US government who supports you,
27. Blessed be the friends of Israel!
Avi ,   Geneva   (01.05.09)
Bless you brethren!
28. And Milliards are prying for the Palistinians
and against Israel
29. #26
Talula ,   Israel   (01.05.09)
'A few guys with light guns and civilians' You forgot to add the must have accessory item - a suicide bomber belt packed with explosives and nails. Hmmmm, that doesn't sound innocent to me. And further more, these belts have been used by hundreds of Palestinians against Israelis over the years. What about the Grad missiles and rockets being lobbed into Israel? Grow up, and either see things for how they REALLY are or just keep quiet.
30. #20 Talula
Shalom   (01.05.09)
Please don't tell us that you have become a Christian. Find out about what's good in your own religion first.
