Jerusalem for Passover, two pilgrims’ adventures….

One of the great joys of going up to Jerusalem for the feasts is to gather on the weekly Shabbats at Independence Park.  Some time back, it sort of became an unwritten date on every ephramite’s calendar: 2pm at Independence Park.  Everybody will be there in a huge group talking excitedly, meeting new friends, making contacts and trading stories!  Dozens of nations are represented and multiple languages heard, though English is the primary.

Well, I had a special encounter with Dave McKnew and Rafael Trevino and heard part of their story.  This morning I received a lengthy email detailing their respective trips to Jerusalem, how they met and how the Father knit them together.  Enjoy!!

Going to Jerusalem for Passover

David McKnew and Rafael Trevino

Jeremiah 3:17
17 “At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of YHVH (LORD), and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of YHVH, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts.

I really had no idea why I felt a desire to go to Jerusalem for Passover but after my pilgrimage to the Holy Land it would be crystal clear. The first time I felt a slight desire to go to Israel was in June of 2017 while laying in my hammock in a very remote area of Kauai called the Kalalau Beach along the Napali coast. I had a thought “why have I not visited Israel, I can take time out to come to a beautiful beach like this to enjoy God’s creation but I have not taken the time to visit God’s holy land the only area on earth He
has said to have placed His name forever”. I did not think about it again until some unusual events had taken place just a few months after I had that thought.

August 21st 2017 just a couple months after that thought on the beach, we had an amazing eclipse sweep across the United States from the West Coast to the East Coast. I noticed some very interesting signs which were pointing to Jerusalem when the eclipse shadow
had passed over 7 Salem’s.

    What an amazing g story! As I told you before, I was given the message, “Be in Jerusalem for a Sukkot”.. I have no idea why, but have plane reservations and hotel reservations for September 18 through October 14… no tour group, no plans, but I just know it’s His will for me and my husband to be there. I trust YZhVH with my whole heart, and know when the time is right,.. He will reveal to me the why, just as He did these two. Thanks for sharing their encouraging stories,Pete!

    hello Pete, enjoyed this story very much. Spent time in many of these spots in September and October for the fall feasts last year myself, and met many of the same people and also was invited to the Windows Over JLM apartment for Shabbat by Kimberly and Michael, so I just kept reading and reading !
    Thanks for the connection !
