Five reasons why every Christian must visit Israel

Israel Christian tours are a must when you want to renew your faith and the best company to set you on your journey is IBMT Tours. We have the expertise to show you the sites and sounds of Israel that will make your holiday one remember it will also be one that is incomparable. Making the trip to Israel is a pilgrimage that anyone of faith should take as your vacation will be filled with historical sites that hosted some of the most important events in Christianity. There are many reasons to make the excursion to the Holy Land, and IBMT Tours will show what you are missing when you have visited the most important country on Earth.

Christian group tours to Israel

•  It is said that when you visit the Holy Land, you will change, your spirituality will be enhanced in a way that you would have never imagined and that is one of the most important aspects of your trip. When you visit, you will encounter a new language and history that you have only read about in books that will come to life before your eyes. When you can see the history first-hand, it will deepen your appreciation for the Holy Land in a way you would have never expected and it brings to life the texts you read when in school. As a world centre, the Middle East has for decades if not centuries has been one of the going concerns on the planet. Events that take place in this complex region reverberate around the world and they have driven geopolitics for as long as Israel has been recognized as an independent country.
•  If you are a student of the Bible, the Good Book will come to life before your eyes. Many have skeptics have called the Bible a work of fiction, but when you take the historical information in context, it becomes a living history of the Holy Land. When we talk about the veracity of the Good Book, many archaeological digs in the Holy Land bear out the text that is written and confirm that many of the prophecies in the Bible were true. The Bible will be the confirmation of the spiritual lessons you learned during the study of the Bible and it will re-enforce your faith in God.

•  As a Christian of faith, your engagement with God is one that is important to you, when you visit the Holy Land, your engagement with God will certainly be different in a positive way. It has been said that God is everywhere, all the time and that God is love, that is a given for Christians. When you are in the Holy Land, you will feel a spiritual awakening, In the Holy Land you be enveloped by the love of God in a spiritual sense and you will be communing with God as prayers will become a natural reaction to the feeling that you are walking with your creator. You can seek the word of God in a way that you don’t in your everyday life. Taking time out for spiritual renewal away from your hectic life is part of the allure that a trip to Israel will entail when you visit the country. You can walk in the footsteps of Christ, from the Sea of Galilee to the road to Calvary Hill. The towns were Christ performed miracles from the feeding of 5000 to the wedding where Christ turned water into wine are just a couple of instances that will help a Christian align with the trails of Christ.
•  As Christians, we interpret the Bible in our own way and we have come to know our savior in a way that may not be consistent with the history of Christ in the Holy Land. A visit to Israel will introduce you to Christ in a way that you have never known him. Christianity in Europe depicted Christ as a fair-skinned man who led an exemplary life – but the reality is that Jesus was a dark-skinned man who was the Messiah for people of the Jewish faith. Jesus said that his father, God, sent him to help the lost sheep of Judaism to renew their faith in God. In order to fully understand the parables and other teachings of Christ, you need to be able to interpret the stories and actions from Hebraic standpoint to fully appreciate the messages that Jesus was conveying when he spoke to his disciples.

•  While the miracles of Christ are well documented during his time, you will see a modern miracle that will leave you with a lasting impression of Israel. After WWII, a country was carved out of the desert, and that country was a homeland for the diaspora of the Jewish faith and Israel was born from the Final Solution. In just short of seven decades, Israel has gone from a Third World outpost with little infrastructure to one of a thriving First World country that leads the world in many sectors of the world economy. As Israel has developed and prospered, the country hasn’t lost sight of their roots and they continue to pay homage to the roots of their faith that brought them to a promise fulfilled by God – a home for his people.

We went on a church group to the Holyland with IBMT Tours and had a great trip, everything was planned for us perfectly. There was over 123 people in four different bus groups and things went smoothly, I thought it was going to be hectic with that many people in the group but IBMT did a wonderful job and made sure the buses did not go convoy, every bus had its own time table and itinerary for the day, our guide Dani was so knowledgeable and loving. We love you IBMT and we will recommend you guys. Thanks for everything you have done for us.

For years, it had been a deep desire of mine to lead a group of pilgrims to the Holy Land.  I’m not sure how it happened (perhaps the grace of God), but I ended up working with Israel Biblical Mission Tours (IBMT) and specifically Ornan Sharaby.   Because I had never led a group like this before, I needed guidance.  Ornan and his team were wonderfully helpful.  They answered all my questions, and never seemed irritated when I called or emailed with what some might have considered a “Silly question.”  Then, when it was close to departure time, I had some apprehensions.  Ornan assured me that he had taken care of everything.  On the day of our departure, we (a group of 27) had no issues whatsoever.  As predicted, everything was “Taken care of.”  The flight experience was good.

Upon our arrival in Israel, the bus and the guide were waiting for us, took us to our Hotel, and we slept well.  We departed on our experience the next morning. 

As we progressed day by day, my wife and I were extremely pleased (as was the entire group).  Every detail of our trip was laid out, and we were treated so very well by everyone.  We experienced no difficulties at all.  It was truly better than we had anticipated.  My compliments to IBMT, and to Ornan and his team.  I simply cannot imagine things going any better.  Our itinerary was wonderful, our bus, and driver were phenomenal, and our guide was friendly, fun, and extremely knowledgeable.  They all made sure that we had an incredible Holy Experience…and we DID!

Every single member of our trip was overwhelmed with the experience, and went out of their way to tell me that their Holy Land Pilgrimage exceeded their expectations. 

Finally, on our last day in Israel, our driver and our guide, expressed their appreciation to us, and made sure that we arrived at the airport on time, and then our guide took up to the right place and helped us get checked in. 

I therefore, with no trepidation whatsoever, very highly recommend IBMT and Mr. Ornan Sharaby when you plan your Holy Land experience.  You could not be in better hands.

This was an incredible tour of Israel with IBMT Tours and I loved the additional trip to Petra as well. We had a very knowledgeable guide from Israel who gave us an extensive explanation of everything we saw in Israel. All of the hotels I stayed in were great with comfortable beds and wonderful buffet breakfasts!!

Dear Brother Ornan and Brother Thomas,

You have fulfilled our great expectation to visit the Holy Land. We all appreciate for your well arrangement for excellent hotels, Tours and the tour guide and the drivers as well. Especially we appreciate for your kind arrangement from Canada even we were on the Tour in Israel and the warmly and kind assists of Mr. Thomas Portmann who taking care of us as his family. We really enjoy the trip with IBMT. And this year, we will be going to Israel with your Tour again. I would like to invite you to visit and present about the upcoming tour at our KBCUSA annual meeting which will be held in Buffalo in July 23-15, 2015. We expect about 500 people at the conference. 

Thanks and God bless you.

My trip to the Holy Land Israel

It is a dream trip is a desired journey, but God is the one who knows when your turn is and when is your time. Since I was at a young age I always wanted to know the world. I thought where Jesus was born, my love for God and my faith; it grew and grew inside of me and with it to know the steps of Jesus. I dreamed about knowing of what I have always heard where Jesus was born, where the Angel Gabriel came to the Virgin Mary and to know where Jesus was born and suffered so much on his way with the cross. Well my dream came true and even more because I received a wonderful grace of the Lord that I know that everyone that visit those distant and blessed lands of the lord receive with open arms and those who seeks him receive his blessing if you come with open heart. It happened I went in the search of my heart to have an encounter with the Lord and I found it, I meet where he walked, where he suffer, where he celebrated his last dinner even where he was born and was happy healing the poor and those who knew of him.

One day my daughter Paloma tells me Mom go to Holy Land, go to Israel she said because she knows that in my heart I knew that I had this thirst the one that it will not heal with any water only with the water that only the Lord knows how to take away. I stared at her and I said to her ok Paloma I want to go, she stood up like guided by the Holy Spirit and immediately started to make arrangements. I still did not understand that God used her so that I can go in search of him, that he had plans for me.

She like the Sheppard contacted Mr. Ornan at Holyland Tours and it was the best decision since we wanted to find the right person to do a religious tour, but I turn up short because it was not only a religious tour with the content discipline and knowledge of the history that our tour guide made this experience masterly

I know that everything was prepared by this gentleman, the attention, the good service offered by Mr. Ornan, and after arriving to my first destination Tel Aviv I was to be reunited with my group and to begin our crossing it was something wonderful a trip that I will never forget and without being afraid of being wrong with my age 47 years old it was the best trip I ever had.

1. The places we visit like Caesaria, Haifa Acre, Tiberías. Capernaum, Banias, Nazareth, Beit Shean, Jerusalém and Massada. These where places that where impregnated in my heart and specially the Old City where I had the divine experience with the lord, where I felt that God touched my heart where I felt that I was not there by accident that I was in this place because God had a plan for me.

I invite everyone that have not yet been to visit these holy places and the land of God to go, to give yourself this wonderful gift because this will change your life and heart, we know how we arrive but we do not know how we will leave. It is so that I assure you that if you arrive with your hearts open and are willing to let god fill you with love you will receive his blessing not only for yourself but for your family as well, give yourself this gift and let god heal you and blessed your heart and give yourself the opportunity to Walk in the Footsteps of Jesus

Dear Thomas:

It was my intention to write to you upon returning from Israel, to tell you how awesome and wonderful the tour turned out to be.

Thomas, I am still in awe of the modernity and beauty of Israel , even though I know that my level of enjoyment and excitement there could have been much less were my cousin and I not fortunate enough to have the intelligence, knowledgeable and dedicated tour guide that Doron Kaufman was / is. I took a total of 1,750 photos; I will be making a photobook from them.

About our guide Doron — He was always pleasant (smiling) and caring, the best tour guide I have ever experienced. His impartation of what he knows about Israel is in its own ilk and he made every trip seem special.

It will interest you to know that I’ve been selling Israel to all my friends, work colleagues and family, telling all how safe I felt under the guidance of your representative and for them to be sure to book a trip there at some time via IBMT Tours’ Thomas Portman. I also encouraged each to ensure t that their tour guide be none other than Doron Kaufman.

So, until my next trip to Israel and with warmest wishes and kindest regards.
