from the Jerusalem Prayer Team

sage body

From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team

Dear Jimmie,

In October of 1983, I went to Beirut. I filled the trunk of the car with food and medicine and ministered to suffering Lebanese people who were being victimized by the PLO. I also took Bibles to share with the U.S. Marines who had been stationed in the city to keep the peace. I witnessed to them, and many were saved. When I asked if they would be going home for Christmas, they said they would not. So I got my cameraman, and we taped holiday greetings to share with their families.

I'll never forget the words of one young Hispanic Marine who looked in the camera and said, "Mom, I know you've been praying that I would find the Lord. I've got a Christmas present for you. I just accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior." That night I slept on the beachhead while the Marines returned to their barracks. Early the following morning, I was awakened shortly after 6:00 by a horrific sound.

A yellow Mercedes truck driven by an Iran-funded Hezbollah operative made its way to the Beirut International Airport where the Marines had set up their headquarters. The truck was not the water truck that was expected, but rather a hijacked truck carrying explosives. The driver turned onto an access road leading to the Marines' compound and circled a parking lot. He then accelerated and crashed through a barbed-wire fence around the parking lot, passing between two sentry posts, and crashed through a gate. He drove into the lobby of the Marine headquarters where the terrorist detonated the truck laden with explosives. It carried the equivalent of 12,000 pounds of TNT.

The force of the explosion caused the four-story building to pancake--one floor collapsing onto the one beneath it, crushing many of those inside. When the terrible rumbling had stopped and the dust-filled air rose into the sky, 241 American servicemen lay dead or dying. Many of them were men to whom I had given Bibles and shared the Gospel with the day before.

I knew I had to get back to Israel, but in the early morning darkness, I couldn't find the right road. I ended up in the middle of a Hezbollah funeral peopled by terrorists carrying a body above their heads. To be in an Israeli vehicle with Jerusalem license plates was like painting a bulls-eye on my forehead. Only through the mercy of God did we get through the crowd.

Our car was targeted by artillery shells, and I was driving as fast as I could....Suddenly, the car sputtered and stopped. We had run out of gas. As we sat there praying that angels of the Lord would protect us, a young Arab man, perhaps eighteen or nineteen, suddenly stepped out of the darkness. We were certain the end had come. He rapped on the window and held up a can of gasoline. He walked to the rear of the vehicle and emptied the can into the gas tank. He then came back and pointed at the door lock. I reached over and pulled up the button. He slid into the seat, and for the next thirty-two kilometers, he directed us by pointing his finger first one way and then another. He did not speak a word while directing us toward the border with Israel.

About fifty yards from the border, he held up his hands signaling me to stop. I stopped; he stepped out of the car, and we pulled up to the border crossing. An Israeeli lieutenant colonel walked up to the car and said, "We thought you were dead. We reported that to the prime minister's office. How did you survive?"

We turned back to look and there was no one on the road. It was an angel of the Lord! The scripture God had given me was from Isaiah 41:10: "Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be discouraged, for I am your God; I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Today I'm asking you to rise up in faith and stand for nation of Israel. It is time for those of us who love Israel and God's Chosen People to stand up in their defense.


We have just received a new matching gift challenge of $100,000! I am rejoicing in knowing we will be able to do even more to help the poor people of Israel and defend the Jewish state...but we can't do it without you. So far 90 loving hearts have responded with $10,400 which will be doubled to $20,800. Will you help today? Your gift will have a double impact, doing twice as much to meet the urgent need.

Israel today stands on the brink of all-out war--a war that will kill or injure thousands of precious Jewish men, women, and children. We must do all that we can to defend the Jewish state and God's Chosen People. These words from Scripture are burning in my heart today:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:13&14)

When you send your gift of any amount, we will send you a copy of my book "The Jerusalem Prophecies." The Holy City is the center of the enemy's attack, and you need to know what God has to say about the future of Jerusalem...and those who bless and curse the Jewish people. If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you this book and autographed copies of three of my books--"Showdown with Nuclear Iran," "Atomic Iran," and "GameChanger." And if you are able to send a gift of $1,000 or more, we will send the books as well as a handcrafted museum-quality large silver-trimmed shofar. Please be as generous as you can when you send your gift today.


There is still time to avert this disaster, but only if we act immediately. I urge you to send your best gift today to help us stand with and for Israel. I want to wish you a Happy New Year and ask for your support to help us protect Israel and our global Jewish family.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

Dr. Michael Evans
