The Israel365 Charity Fund is committed to supporting Israel’s brave soldiers in their mission to defend the Promised Land.
The Bible promises that in the end of days, the time will come when countries will no longer need armies, because we will all live together in peace.
Until this blessed time of universal peace under the reign of Messiah arrives, the State of Israel maintains a powerful army, and drafts its young men and women for mandatory service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The Israel365 Charity Fund assists the brave soldiers of the IDF, especially Lone Soldiers who volunteer for service, far away from their families outside of Israel.
Immediately after leaving slavery in Egypt on their journey to the Promised Land, the Israelites form the first Jewish army, instructed to do so, by God:
You and Aharon shall record them by their groups, from the age of twenty years up, all those in Yisrael who are able to bear arms. (Numbers 1:3)
Later on in Scripture, King David fought many battles against Israel’s enemies in defense of his people.
And David said to his men, “Gird on your swords.” Each girded on his sword; David too girded on his sword. About four hundred men went up after David. (I Samuel 25:13)
After the Jewish people were exiled from Israel following the destruction of the Temple in the year 70 CE, until the return of the People of Israel to their homeland in 1948, the Jews had no independent army.
Today, IDF soldiers are found everywhere in Israel, from public buses to shopping malls. Nearly every visitor to Israel sees Israeli soldiers wherever they travel, from the Golan Heights in the North to Eilat in the South.
And just as King David relied on God in all his battles, the brave IDF soldiers also have our Father in heaven on Whom to rely:
Thanks to many generous, pro-Israel Evangelical Christian supporters, today’s IDF soldiers also rely on the Israel365 Charity Fund to protect them in their important duties.
