Comfort my People    

     Comfort My People (known as Hazon Yeshaya in Israel) is dedicated to helping the poor of Israel, offering the care of the Lord to Jews, Arabs, and Christians alike.

     Founded in 1997 by a successful businessman from New York, Comfort My People has grown to a nationwide network serving approximately 400,000 hot meals every month at more than 60 locations. As people like you offer support, these meals--the only meal these people enjoy each day--offer hope to those who have nowhere else to turn. In addition, thousands are blessed by free dentistry, free vocational training (to help many build new lives), and more.

     The lines for help are far too long--so many of the faces are very old (3,500 Holocaust survivors are fed each day) and very young--children from homes of poverty and often abuse. Your partnership will offer hope to such as these... will show hungry men, women, and children that, in the "Promised Land," they have not been forgotten.

      Key Scriptures for Israel:

Isaiah 40:1 "Comfort ye, comfort ye my People."

Isaiah 62:1 "For Israel's sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and her SALVATION as a lamp that burns."

Isaiah 62:6-7 "I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem: They shall never be silent day or night. You who pray to the Lord, do not keep silent and give Him no rest until He establishes and until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth."

International Christian Assembly Jerusalem

     “Comfort ye, comfort ye My People” - The quote is taken partly from Isaiah 40:1-2. It was the “mandate from heaven” given to the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem three decades ago. It also includes an exhortation that appears to be a contradiction, at least if one applies it to the modern day context. This exhortation says:

“Speak comfort to Jerusalem and cry out to her, that her warfare has ended .....” Isaiah 40:2

     For over thirty years the ICEJ has embarked upon a journey of giving comfort to Israel. This journey has involved deeds and compassion and every town, village and city has been impacted, in some way, by our benevolence ministry that has helped the poor, healed the sick, housed the lonely, encouraged the children and cared for the elderly.

     Our Feast of Tabernacles celebration has impacted more than a hundred thousand Christians with the biblical perspective of recognizing the hand of God in Israel’s modern day restoration and the need to work with what God is doing, and bless it. As I have written before, we are thankful to God for His faithfulness. We have not done our work perfectly but we have done it sincerely. “The Day” at the judgment seat of Christ will determine its real value! Of this too we are most mindful and so should we all be!!
