Bro John Mukanganwa – Israel – Itinerary

Apr 20, 2018   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Bro John Mukanganwa – Israel – Itinerary

 

Day 1 Monday 12th November UK – Israel

This is a unique trip to visit Israel at the middle of their 70th year back in their promised land where they are to stay forever according to Amos 9:15 “And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God”. Israel became a nation in 1948. It will be wonderful to see Israel after 70 years since independence. Our inspiration will be Zechariah 1:12 “12Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?” We are going to bless Israel by spending our time, money and praying in a blessed one-week holiday there as they approach the end of their 70thyear 2018 since returning from Diaspora. Our prayer for Israel will be for God to turn his face again to Israel in line with Holy Scripture EZEKIEL 39:

28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. 29Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD

Zecharaih 10:“And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.” Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?”

The above scriptures will be part of meditation, rededication and prayer while in Israel.

The Meaning of Shrove Tuesday

Jan 22, 2018   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on The Meaning of Shrove Tuesday

As we head towards February there’s a significant date to look out for in the Christian calendar and the day in question is Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the very first day of Lent. There’s a good chance you have heard of Shrove Tuesday, but do you know what this date means, and what significance it has to Christianity? We explain everything here to simplify matters.

What is Shrove Tuesday?

Shrove Tuesday is a day of repentance prior to the beginning of Lent in the Christian calendar. It’s a chance to cleanse the soul and celebrate a little, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the last feast before Lent begins. In ancient times, this was the last day you had to use up all the food you weren’t allowed to eat during Lent, and many people ate pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, which is how it became known as Pancake Day in modern times.

It involves penitence

The name Shrove Tuesday is derived from the shriving rituals of old, where people would confess their sins and receive absolution for them from their priest. This released them from guilt, as they confessed all of their deeds to a holy man, who would then shrive them and absolve them in return.

We use Shrove Tuesday as a celebration

Today, we celebrate Shrove Tuesday by cooking pancakes at home, and for many, this is the last chance they have to indulge, before giving up something for Lent. In the old days, families would use this opportunity to use up food such as milk, eggs or fats, and by simply adding flour, they could make pancakes and celebrate with a fine feast, using up produce that might have gone off otherwise.

Shrove Tuesday is an important part of Christian life, and many families will be celebrating by eating pancakes this year, whilst thinking of the symbolism of this day.

Here at ITS Travel, we understand how significant Shrove Tuesday is, and also know that devout Christians can feel closer to God when they take part in escorted pilgrimages to Israel and all over the world.  For more information about our Christian and Catholic pilgrimages, please contact us today or call us on 0161 839 1111.
