Christians have been making pilgrimages to the Holy Land since the first century. We encourage all believers in Messiah to make at least one visit to Israel. In a spiritual sense, the land of Israel is the homeland of all believers. The presence of God permeates the land.
The Messiah is the redeemer of Israel. Through His suffering and atoning death He has already accomplished a spiritual redemption, and when He returns, He will accomplish the physical redemption of His people. Just as Moses, the first redeemer, redeemed all Israel from slavery in Egypt, so too, the ultimate redeemer will redeem Israel from exile among the nations. He will gather the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob from the nations and restore them to the land of Israel.
