House of Praise and Intercession.
When we were on our way to Israel, leaving the island of MALTA, God told us that we should return to this place and establish a base for our ministry.
This will be a “House of praise & Intercession” and a training center to prepare the Mediterranean for the vision that He had given us of a revival that comes specifically in this region of the world. Read the Vision
As we approached Israel, the vision of this “House of praise & Intercession” became more and more precise with all its specificity. A place to:
- Raise prophetic praise: “Now bring me someone who can play the harp. While the harp was being played, the power of the Lord came upon Elisha, and he said, ‘This is what the Lord says. 2 Kings 3:15)
- Establish a targeted intercession for Aliyah for the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah 19:24: “In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth. For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, my special possession!”
Then, as I was praying for this project, I received this Hebrew name for this place: Beit Tehillah (תְּהִלָּה בַּיִת)
- Beit means house in Hebrew, a place of residence.
- Tehillah is one of the words that are translated into English by praise. It is a form of praise based not on the fact that our situation is glorious, but because HE is worthy of our praise.
We find this term in Psalm 22/2–3: “My God! My God! My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer, and by night, but I find no rest. Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises (Tehillah) of Israel”.
It’s in this kind of praise that God sits in the midst of his people. He is not just present! He is enthroned! This means to exercise authority, to judge, to rule! When we praise God in this manner, we invite him to reign over us and over what surrounds us.
This is the vision of Beit Tehillah: The House of Praise.
