Day 2: Caesarea, Meggido (Armageddon), Mt. Carmel, & Nazareth

Our first stop today was Caesarea. We talked about Paul’s story in Acts 26. We talked about how every Christian is/ should be an outpost of the Kingdom of God. Often we think that our salvation is just for us and is all about our walk with the Lord and how we can grow, etc.. but it’s actually the opposite! God’s plan is from one man to bring the Gospel to the entire world! So know that your salvation is nothing about you, but everything about Jesus and He wants to use you to reach those around you!

Next we went to Meggido (Armageddon) where we discussed Solomon & the importance of not placing our trust in our stuff, our strength, or our self, but instead in Christ.

On to Mt. Carmel where we read over 1 Kings 18 which is the story of Elijah when he asked the Lord to bring down fire to prove that he is the one true God.

Lastly, we visited Nazareth, the place where Jesus grew up. This was the most beautiful view we have seen so far.
