Israel | Day 3 (part 2)
The second half of the day, we headed to the far north border of Israel (the Golan Heights). In fact, we were in Syrian territory for part of the day.
First of all, let me say that there are absolutely no security concerns. We have seen one person with a gun (soldier). He was eating at a fast food place today. It is completely peaceful in every area we have visited.
Check out this foot washing station outside the bathroom. This was at a national park.
Here is the triangle border where Lebanon, Syria and Israel all meet in the far north. We visited Caeserea Philippi (there are two Caesereas). The yellow sign warns people to not cross border because of land mines.
At this location is where Jesus conversed with Peter about the gates of hell not prevailing against the faith in Jesus. (paraphrase) in Matthew 16. The black hole is the ‘gate of hell’ where people sacrificed their kids to the Pan God. This was a powerful tool that Jesus used to show the disciples that not even the most horrible events in this present world could affect your salvation and power of God.
Here are my new friends!
This pic below is a shirt we found. True!
Pic below is the cliff were the pigs (possessed by demons) plunged into the sea.
