Standing with Israel - for Your sake
'HE who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar — the LORD Almighty is his name:
"Only if these decrees vanish from my sight, declares the LORD, will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me."'
YACHAD ( Hebrew for ‘together’) is a loosely affiliated group of established ministries and individuals in Scotland who, in regard to God's covenants with Israel, share the theological position of celebrated evangelical leaders of former times. Robert Murray McCheyne, Charles Spurgeon, Bishop JC Ryle and others held a very clear Biblical position which we believe needs urgently to be revisited by today's Christian community.
Working ‘together’ in His purposes
Evangelical ministries both in the UK and in Israel with which Yachad identifies (and aims to support) have been called to a wide and diverse range of service. There are those that stand alongside believers' fellowships in Israel, while others have been called to minister in the Name of Jesus to people suffering from poverty, sickness, unemployment and the traumas that have afflicted both sides in the long history of conflict. Yet others are variously involved in taking the Gospel to the Jewish people, in facilitating Jewish immigration and in seeking, at the deepest level, to reconcile Jew and Arab.
God’s Peace Plan
We do not necessarily support every political action of any government, including that of the nation of Israel (although it is the only democracy in the region and is fighting for its very survival). However, we pray for the welfare of the nation and its people; and for justice and peace for all who live in that land - Jew and Arab alike.
As God leads, Yachad seeks to bring the prophetic Word of God to the whole church and to address the vexed issue of peace in the Middle East through the one and only true Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.
Note: Yachad (in Scotland) bears no relation to a similary-named but later-established Jewish group in England
