The Christian groups that were recognized include: The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, Ebenezer International, Ebenezer Hilfsfonds Deutschland, Ezra International, Christians for Israel, the Patmos Foundation, One Mission, and the Kim Clement Center.

These groups were all given special thanks at the closing plenary of the Jewish Agency’s Board of Governors meeting on Tuesday for “helping to both fund and physically assist The Jewish Agency’s Aliyah operations in war-torn Ukraine.”

According to the Jewish Agency, these groups helped rescue Jews from dangerous areas in eastern Ukraine by transporting them through troubled areas and locating the documents necessary for aliyah.

“There is a long history of Christian involvement in our Aliyah operations and it is always appropriate to give thanks, but today, as Christian organizations help us save Jewish lives every day in Ukraine, it is particularly important to show our appreciation,” said Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky.

In 2014, aliyah from Ukraine increased by 190 percent over the previous year due to the ongoing war between the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian separatists. Overall, 5,840 Ukrainian Jewish immigrants made their way to Israel in 2014, the second-highest total from any country, behind France.

    There are a few lasting statements I want to a pro-Israeli Judeochristian before all sites in America that are pro Israeli are shut down by this administration. Scripturally it states their will be a famine in the land the prophets will be silenced we are approaching their shut down at wharp speed. If you understand a few biblical fundamentals you will not be easily deceived. Rev: 17:12 the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as of yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. Those ten horns are the army’s being raised by the U.S. Under the control of what Danial refers to as the little horn. Rev: 17:3…I saw a woman setting on a scarlet beast…having seven heads and 10 horns. The woman had in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthy ness of her fornications….the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. Rev: 17:16…and the ten horns you saw on the beast will hate the harlot, make her desolate , and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with Fire…that would be the Rev18 judgement. Read Daniael 7:9-11 titled the Vision of the Ancient of days…it is the judgement of the little horn who speaks with pompous words. Did Hillary set in motion Rev 17:3? It seems so.
