MYSTICAL TOURS

SOME BACKGROUND TO THE TOURS

Once a year, we arrange a tour to one of three destinations of deep spiritual

significance.  The objective is not to have a relaxing holiday, but to corporately

execute strategic assignments in the Nation we are touring.  

 

It is imperative that those who sign up for the tours are born again followers

of Christ and come in the capacity of servants, willing and available to intercede and sow into that particular Nation, so that God's purposes can be established.  

 

Fun, sightseeing and down time are definitely on the agenda, but more importantly, we are there to fulfil the mandate God has for the trip.

 

We try to do one trip a year. For 2019 we are going to Scotland.

TOURS OF ISRAEL

Ohel Moed is a firm supporter of Israel and we trade into them by interceding and also sowing finances into the Nation and people of Israel.

 

​In Psalm 122:6 it says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure.”

 

God calls Israel the “apple of His eye” which is a term of endearment (Duet. 32:10, Zech. 2:8). God adds a blessing to those nations and people who bless Israel and a curse falls on those who curse Israel (Gen. 12:2-3). God is evidently still invested in Israel, saying in 2 Chronicles 6:6, “Yet I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name may be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.” Wherever God places His name is where He still places His love. Jesus wept over Jerusalem, knowing what their fate held (Luke 19:41).

Why We Should Pray for Israel?

There are many scriptures where the Father says that we should pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).  Not only does this say that we should pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and by extension, Israel, we read that “those who love you, will be secure.” This is a clear signal that God would be pleased that we pray for Israel’s peace and safety because God is not giving up on Israel (Rom 10:1).

 

In the New Testament, Paul prayed for Israel’s salvation, saying, “Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved” (Rom 10:1). If Paul is telling the church that his heart’s desire is to pray for Israel and that “they may be saved” that should clearly be our prayer for them also. Believers today are grafted into the natural olive tree – described as ethnic Israel – for we are “fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household” (Eph. 2:19). Romans 11:24 is clear about this: “After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!”

TOURS OF IRELAND

We have a deep love for Ireland and its people.  Ireland carries a very special place in our hearts, especially as Grant's ancestry is from Ireland.

 

Ireland in our opinion is a nation that is a "Thin Place".  There is a a great spritual awareness in Ireland and when you study the lives of the Celtic saints it is easy to see why Ireland has such a strong spiritual pull.  St. Patrick introduced Christianity to the Celts around 431 A.D. In his attempts to convert the Celts, Patrick highlighted the many similarities between their beliefs and those of the Christian faith, such as the existence of an afterlife. Seeing the parallels, the Celts were easily converted. Their conversion brought to Christianity a perspective unlike that of the Romans.  That unique spiritual perspective still finds appeal to this day.

More on Ireland

Pilgrimage was a very important aspect of Celtic spirituality, and is still very much alive in Ireland.  Pilgrimage is always a search for God and God’s goodness; true pilgrimage has to do with a change of heart. The outward journey serves to frame an inner journey: a journey of repentance and rebirth; a journey which seeks a deeper faith, greater holiness; a journey in search of God. For the early Christian monks, the concept of pilgrimage was closely tied with the Christian notion of penance. Monks would often embark on pilgrimages as a way of seeking out a place which would reveal God to them.

 

Traveling through Ireland, as the ancient pilgrims would have, offers an excellent opportunity to experience one of the other major themes of Celtic spirituality: the immanent presence of God, which means that God is everywhere.

 

For Celtic Christians, God was a key part of all things natural and beautiful. Whereas the ancient Celts worshiped pagan gods for nearly every natural setting, Celtic Christians praised God’s design and creation of all things natural. The hills, the sky, the sea, the forests were not God, but their spiritual qualities revealed God and were connected to God.

 

Places where people feel most strongly connected with God’s presence are referred to as “thin places.” It is in these places where the seen and unseen worlds are most closely connected and inhabitants of both worlds can momentarily touch the other.  For us, then, it is a place where it is possible to touch and be touched by God, as well as the angels and the Cloud of Witnesses.

 

The land of Ireland seems to have endless “thin places.”  We have had so many amazing encounters and experiences while on tour in Ireland. Why not considering coming with us on our next tour?
