Israel update with Ambassador to Israel

by Greg Laurie on May 9, 2019

It seems a day can’t go by without Israel making it into the headlines. Just the other day I saw on the news, that the Israeli people had been hit with 700 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip.

In Zechariah 12:2 it says, “Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples.” Every day it seems this verse is coming true!

I am currently in Israel right now. I had the pleasure to sit down and talk with David Friedman, who currently serves as the United States Ambassador to Israel. David Friedman and I got to chat about the current state of the Israeli people, and the struggles the nation faces in the Middle East right now.

Israel and its people face many challenges, and today it seems they have more enemies than ever before. We need to remember to keep the nation of Israel in our prayers, that God will move in protection and salvation for them. Watch the video below to see the full conversation I had with David.
