Vision Christian Tours

Day 23 - October 11:
Home

This morning we were able to sleep in without needing a wake up call to get us moving. It was a nice start to the day especially in light of the fact that there would be an extremely long haul to get home to Australia.

A couple in our tour were heading to the UK for a further month of travelling through England and then Europe, another couple plan to spend another week in Israel before heading home, and the rest were heading back to the land of Oz.

We all had to check out of our rooms at midday and then chill around nearby coffee shops until our tour group contact and bus picked us up at 1:30pm to take us all to the airport to fly back to Ben Gurion, Israel where we would check in again and wait for the first long haul flight to Bangkok and then the final connecting flight to Australia to our respective capital cities.

It’s safe to say that we won’t be the same again after our time in Israel, and the other lands where the Gospel was taken in the first century and from there to the rest of the world...and all the way to Australia where we heard it and put our faith in Christ.

Just one more final thought...

We were able to learn contextual and cultural insights that enabled us to gain much greater understanding about what took place in these ancient historical places, things that have opened our understanding of the Bible and what it teaches that we otherwise wouldn’t have known. Culture and context is really crucial to understanding the Bible and sound doctrine, but where do we find this information?

I realise this is going to sound like a shameless plug, but Vision Christian Store, a resource arm of the ministry of Vision Christian Media, is an excellent place to start and in particular, the teaching resources of the late Dr Chuck Missler. He has produced both Mp3 and DVD commentaries on every book of the Bible as well as topical DVD’s on numerous subjects.

The Learn the Bible in 24hrs is a brilliant resource giving a really substantial survey of the entire Bible and how it all fits together, but commentaries on Daniel, Zechariah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Matthew, John and Revelation cover a lot of material that we were able to touch on during our tour.

Vision Christian Store was established to help teach and disciple believers all around Australia, to fulfil the mandate Jesus gave to Peter when they had breakfast on the beach, when Jesus told Peter to feed the lambs and feed the sheep. That basically meant to teach God’s people the Word of God soundly and effectively and we take that mandate very seriously.

Having consumed the teaching material of Dr Chuck Missler personally for the past decade, I would highly recommend his material and would also repeat Dr Missler’s expectation of all believers to not simply believe everything he, or any other teacher tells them, but to be like the Berean’s, and receive the words with a ready mind, but search the Scriptures every day to test and see if what you’re being told is true.

The Blue Letter Bible (.org) is also an excellent, free online Bible study resource with Strongs numbers for both the Hebrew and Greek words with their definitions and meanings at your finger tips along with studies, commentaries, devotionals and historical backgrounds to help you with understanding and applying God’s Word to your daily life.

Go to it...it’ll change your life! 🙂

Together, we travelled to the Holy Land, we walked the length and breadth of where our faith and the redemption plan for humanity all began and we’re taking what we saw and learned home with us to share it with everyone we know.

Next year in Jerusalem!

Next year Jerusalem - make that 2020, only 18 months time. I’ve had fascinating learning experiences here with Mandy and Ian and can recommend their informative guidance throughout this journey of mine. I feel so different,having seen first hand where Bible events actually took place. I’ve come to love The Jews, God’s chosen people. God willing I will return in 2020. God bless Mandy & Ian and the Vision crew.

Well said Mandy and safe travels home for everyone xx

Hope you all can get some sleep on the way home. It has been great to see the adventures of our new family and friends from Israel & Jordan. 🇦🇺🇮🇱🇯🇴🇦🇺

The trip to Israel with Vision Christian Tours . . was a life changer for me. The tour guides were exceptional - the accommodation was 5star - the hosts Ian Worby, Mandy Worby, Phil Edwards & Joy Edwards has such servant hearts. This should be a trip that EVERY Christian takes at least once in a lifetime! You will never be the same again and your Bible will come alive!!! 😇

Me too thanks guys will do it again for sure

really so interesting so glad you both are home safe n sound.I stayed at the REX top bar was great haha

Why Israel?

Land, Bread and Wine

All God’s instructions to His people are based in and around the land He promised us. So it’s very hard to understand the Bible without some knowledge of Israel itself. In these turbulent times, it may now be more important than ever to get to know the promised land, which, now it’s back in the …Read More
