(IsraelNN.com) Israeli tourism is soaring higher than the planes that bring it. A new report issued by the Ministry of Tourism and the Central Bureau of Statistics proudly proclaims December 2009 the most visitor-laden December in Israeli history, in which 225,000 tourists set foot on the Holy Land.
The number is a substantial 11% increase from the same month in 2008.
Overall, 2.7 million tourists visited Israel in 2009, 10% less than in 2008, making 2009 the second highest tourism year on record. The statistics for 2008 were 35% higher than those for 2007.
Why is this happening? You probably already know. 100s of thousands of people (believers or not) know or sense in their spirits that time is short, God loves them and wants to save them, and the Holy Land has a special draw on their hearts.
Look up for your redemption draweth nigh!
Lord bless you today.
