SEE THE NEW VIDEO BELOW – NO DANGER IN ISRAEL!
Every Christian should visit Israel at least once, if possible. Israel is a country of unbeatable history, immense natural beauty, world-class culture, and amazing people. The reasons for visiting are countless, but here are 10 Reasons you can and should join us on our upcoming trip to the Holy Land in April 2015:
10. It Is A Religious Experience—Literally!
Israel is the holiest place on earth—holy to Jews, holy to Christians, and holy to Muslims. Each year millions of pilgrims from thousands of religious persuasions visit Israel and its Holy City Jerusalem, which is the site of soul-stirring sights like the Temple Mount, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Wailing Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Upper Room, the Garden Tomb, and the Dome of the Rock. That is where Abraham first offered his son in faith to God. Together we will not only tour the miraculous Land of the Bible, we will also worship and experience the presence of the God of the Bible.
9. It Is Safe, and Israel Wants You and Needs You to Visit!
Many people, based on what they hear in the media, think it’s dangerous to visit Israel. But almost everyone after visiting is amazed how wrong they were. Even during the recent bloodshed in the Gaza Strip, 75,000 tourists still safely made their way to all the major sites without even one of them being injured. In fact, more than 8 million tourists visited the Holy Land over the past two years, and every one of them returned home safe and sound. The Christian travel agency, Imagine Tours and Travel, which is customizing our trip, has led over 50,000 tourists to Israel over the past 30 years without one serious incident. You see statistically speaking, it is safer to visit Israel than any other Western country, including the United States. Furthermore, the government of Israel is confident (We are too!) that the present fighting will have ceased long before we visit and assure us that they will not let us come if it will put us in harm’s way. So join us! Israel needs us to support them with our tourism right now!

8. The Bible Will Become More Alive And Real To You!
This is the land where Abraham trekked, where Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho, where David and Solomon ruled the most glorious kingdom in history, and where Jesus the Son of God lived, died, rose again, and ascended to heaven. After seeing these and dozens of other places where the events of the Bible took place, you will have new faith in the historicity, accuracy, and reliability of the Bible. You’ll also be able to share your faith with greater accuracy, excitement, and confidence, especially when you show them pictures of where it all took place. That’s right! Lots and lots of pictures! So don’t forget your camera!
7. Sun, Sun, And Yes, More Sun!
That may worry you. “After all,” you say. “I don’t do well in the heat!” That’s why April is an ideal time of year for anyone who wants to visit Israel. Average high temperature in Jerusalem in April is 70 degrees with an average low of 50 degrees, and an average of only 4 days of rain the entire month. Desert places like Masada, En Gedi, Qumran, and the Dead Sea will naturally be warmer, but not unbearable. So yes, you can get a tan, but you don’t have to worry about heat stroke. It is sounding better by the moment, isn’t it?
6. Israel’s Natural Wonders!
Many consider Israel’s Mediterranean coast with its unspoiled beaches (despite their proximity to the cities) a wonder! The beach at Tel Aviv, less than an hour walk to Joppa where Jonah fled from the Lord and Peter raised Dorcas from the dead, is spectacular! To the east the Dead Sea beckons with the saltiest water on earth, perfect to float in (You can’t sink if you try!), and the lowest spot on earth (1,388 feet below sea level) where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered and the Qumran community lived. To the north is the Sea of Galilee where we’ll take a boat ride and imagine we’re fishing with Peter, Andrew, James, and John! By the way, did I mention that Israel is small? Only 70 minutes from the Jerusalem to the Dead Sea, and only 98 minutes from Jerusalem to Nazareth! This means we will see all the sights in 14 days, traveling in our own safe, secure, comfortable, and air-conditioned travel coach! And there’s more—so much more!
