Yam HaMelach (Salt Sea)

Arrived in Tel Aviv Sunday evening, December 3. Our driver, now 24 years old, was born in Ukraine and came to Israel when he was 3 months old. His grandmother, so tired of antisemitism so prevalent there for centuries, said, when the opportunity came to go to Israel, “I am going. You can come with me or not, but I am going.” Her family followed her.

As we drove the 2-hour drive to the Dead Sea, something so unusual caught my eye. On both sides of the highway, cars were parked parallel to the road, one very close to another, for about a quarter of a mile.

I asked, “What happened?”

Sergiy, our driver, said, “Oh, that’s an army base over there. Those are the cars of reservists called up for duty. And there is not enough room inside the base to park.”

Israel now has 350,000 reservists called into active duty.

Sergiy’s unit is next to be called up if needed. He hopes to be called soon for more than one reason.

For one, he drives small groups through the Land.

On October 6, two friends called and asked him to go with them to the festival on the Gaza border. He declined because he had a client—a New York rabbi—who had told him about the Ezekiel 38–39 war.

One of his two friends was shot in the leg.

We were his first job since October 7. He wants to be called up because the government pays the reservists their normal salary or monthly income. Of course, he loves his country, but he also needs to “make ends meet.”

 

Our Salt Sea Hotel

I have been coming to this same hotel for many years to take advantage of the sun for my skin. So I know very well Elkanah, who works at the desk.

He smiled broadly when he recognized me. He said, “It’s so good to see a smile.”

He lives in Dimona. There was no terrorist activity there on October 7. But he has friends who lived in Gaza. He knows some of the hostages. He said he had a panic attack two days later.

 

Changes at the Hotel

The rooms are so familiar. But everything else has changed. My son Terry, my daughter Shelli, and I are the only tourists.

Everyone in this hotel has been evacuated from Sderot, a town less than a mile from Gaza.

I spoke to one young mother tonight (Monday) at dinner. She has five children, ranging in age from 6 months to 11 years old. She said, “It is hard. Very hard. For years, rocket after rocket.”

I had a question I chose not to ask. I see many young women with children here. I think their husbands must be at war.

Up the hill, in the David Hotel (formerly the Hyatt), the evacuees from Be’eri (a kibbutz about three miles from the Gaza border). The terrorists broke through the fences there early on October 7.

In the liberation of Jerusalem in 1917, the British and ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) broke through at Be’eri to defeat the Ottoman forces.

Our Solidarity Tour is scheduled to visit Be’eri.

The people here at our hotel are quiet. Sober. But the sound of the laughter of playing children tells the story of how the Jews have survived and continue to do so. It reminds me of what God said through Jeremiah, “I know the plan and future I have for you.”

  12. Teri Lee Steijer on December 4, 2023 at 6:39 pm

    Thank you, Sister Billye for sending this blog. I have been praying for you and Brother Max (in Jordan) since November 30, asking our Jesus for safe travel mercies. Actually I have been praying for you, your family, ministry and Brother Max for years, but especially for safety for you (and your tour group). I am enjoying my study of Ezekiel with you and Shelli on 3BI. I also pray with you and Brother Max on Wednesdays. I know the Lord would have me pray with you because, for some reason, I am able to repeat your heavenly prayer language, word for word, just as you are speaking it. The rest of the time, I use my own prayer language. I was able to attend your prayer conference in Brea with your grandson and his lovely wife last June. I rejoice with you that God has blessed them with a healthy baby boy. I just saw an interview with Brother Kenneth and Sister Gloria on YouTube last night. They look marvelous! I used to watch all your programs with Gloria on the Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcasts years ago. I loved the way you called her “Glow” from time to time.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON DECEMBER 6TH!

    God bless and keep you all.

    Such a somber, but meaningful point in time to go to Israel. A special appointed mission of duty, being in the Promise Land and seeing Migdal Arbel come to life. There must be so many mixed emotions and seeing scriptures fulfilled right before your very eyes. I am looking forward to your many blogs Miss Billye and reports on the prayer calls. May God keep you all safe and at peace, a hedge of protection and the blood of Jesus over you all. Much love!!!

    Thanking the Lord for you dear sister. Your courage, faith, and twinkling eyes reveal the Love of Christ in an astounding way. May His presence through you bring them comfort. Shalom Shalom.

  61. Peter Pritchard on December 4, 2023 at 9:16 pm

    Billye, bless you and all your family. The reality of being there gives a real focus . Thx for the update indeed. Here in Australia anti Semitism is prevalent and the government is weak in its support of the Jewish folk and much sympathy floods one way….Gaza. We pray here at home daily for God’s mighty hand to direct the traffic in the conflicts. Many years ago I was a hostage for three days in a jail siege but suffered nothing like the poor folk dragged off to Gaza. During that time I was led to read Ruth 1:16-18. I put Jesus into the text and clung to Him tightly . Right now I plead the Blood over Israel to restore all to God.
    Shalom, Kefa.

  62. Clare on December 4, 2023 at 9:18 pm

    Peace and blessing while there and always.
    I wonder how I could sign up to volunteer at the farms that were burnt for 3 months or so. Shalom.

    Hi Billye and Team,
    So thankful to see your blog today. We went to Israel in April/May of this year. As you were describing your trip to the Dead Sea I could picture where you were. Also, we stayed at the David Hotel – Beautiful place. Praying for the Peace of Jerusalem and angels around you all as you travel and bless the wonderful people Israel. We thank the Lord for the Blood of Jesus to cover you.
    Again, so Blessed to see your blog on this day and Happy Birthday early!!
    Blessings from your partner in Edmond, OK

    Shalom! Shalom! Dear Lady! Happy to hear that the LORD took you all safely to your Post! I’ve been considering some of God’s Word to you/us from the last Wednesday’s Noon Meeting of 11-29-23. The following Words stand out to me:
    You are to be understand that you are in charge.
    1 Peter 5:2-3 KJV; “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.” (This is really resonating with me as I text, and I don’t want to add to the Word that was spoken, but I see verse 4 as very relevant.)

    The next line says:
    Luke 6:31; And as ye would that men should do unto you, do ye also to them likewise. KJV

    I have been watching Chuck Colson’s reporting on YouTube for honest reports of the Hamas/Israeli War. He moves from various locations, and tonight he and his wife were in front of the King David Hotel and the Y, where it’s all light up and decorated with lights. It was encouraging to see that as I was wondering and praying (as with all of f us), as to your whereabouts.
    Praising the Lord that His MIGHTY Presence is with you all, and that “all is well”! I’m looking forward to hearing how He will move through you in the midst of those in your environment!❤️🙏💯
    It’s 11:08pm here in Kansas
    Love to each of you! Sister Augusta🙏❤️

  67. Catherine Bruce on December 4, 2023 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you for this, I love it. Would have been right there but grandson number 5 came last night, so your blog is very special Dr Billye hearing the stories front line. Shalom

  68. Patti Burian Ingman on December 4, 2023 at 11:52 pm

  69. Keith & Mary Hudson on December 5, 2023 at 12:23 am

    Dear Billye,

    You and Shelly are soldiers of light bringing hope to an oppressed land. Just the courage of you both travelling there while Israel is one of its worst wars ever brings life to people under great duress like those mothers & children from Sderot. The angels are definitely encamped around about you everywhere you go, this is an historic moment. We expect to hear about miracles happening to you everywhere you go in this trip.

    Big Blessings

    Keith & Mary Hudson

    I’ve been thinking and praying over you all, Max and Isreal . Max uploaded a video yesterday as well, I watched. Then I reflect on the words given to us all and God is protecting and guiding you all, how wonderful to know these things “hearing from heaven” I look forward to Wednesday call to do as the father says to listen to my prophet and friend, I feel like you have more insight and direction on the words given last week. Much Love and prayers! Jamie

    Wish I were there…I ask for God’s anointing and Holy Spirit move through you nightly.
    Almighty God draw all to Jesus Christ and make them new! Open up souls to hear and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Messiah. Perform signs, wonders, give visions and dreams, convict them Holy Spirit and bring them out of the kingdom of darkness and into the Light of the Kingdom of God. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it already has been done in heaven. I ask in the Name and authority of Messiah Jesus, King and Lord. Amen.

  89. Marie Snider on December 5, 2023 at 9:29 am

    Thanks for this! I marvel @ the wonder of our GOD. HE directed your plan of THIS TRIP @ THIS TIME–perfect. Your steps are ordered of HIM–awesome. My heart aches to be there with you, but this is our tgafc concert Christmas season (tgafc.org) to see videos of beautiful Chistmas music. I’m beyond blessed to sing praises to Hashem in this 100-voice chorus. Also Prayer Force is very special to me. I have grown & am in the process of being conformed into HIS IMAGE. You continue to teach me much. We sang “THERE SHALL A STAR COME OUT OF JACOB & A SCEPTOR SHALL COME FORTH OUT OF ISRAEL”–Felix Mendelssohn, & I pondered the meaning. Soon, you explained the difference in Jacob & Israel, & cleared my muddle–sooo helpful.
    I am compelled to say that years ago I got sick lots & often. Finally, our fam. Jewish dr. & personal family friend said I must take minerals–zinc, in particular–200mg daily. No more cough, or infection anwhere. That & a few other supplements, (D3) & proper rest keep me WELL. A Scripture in Prov. says, He who does not do what he knows to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide. Not for us!
    Great love, Honor, & HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you. My daughter’s b’day is today, Dec. 5.
    I look forward to “meeting with you in the morning” !😘🎶🎶🎶

  90. Tamee Beachum on December 5, 2023 at 12:22 pm
