Blessing Holy Land Tour

Gordon's Calvary

          In September of 2002, Associate Pastor Dick Sutkof led the first Blessing Holy Land Tour.  The annual, seven-day tour takes place each September with only 40 slots available for sign-up.  Last year, Brother Sutkof was accompanied by Brother Barry Blone who gave detailed information about various tour sites in relation to the coming events of Bible prophecy.  Brother Sutkof is generally accompanied by some other great man of God who is versed in Holy Land geography in relation to the Word of God.  Frequently accompanying the tour is Rabbi Mordechai Lemsley Goldberg of the messianic congregation HaQahal HaBen David in Seattle.  The upcoming tour will feature Rabbi Goldberg’s presentation of seven Holy Land sites which relate to the seven Feasts of the Lord.  It is sure to be a dynamic time in the Lord and for those who sign up early to reserve their spot in the limited space available, the Blessing Holy Land Tour will most certainly live up to its name.

Gordon's Garden


You will see Gordon’s Calvary, Place of the Skull, where Brother Gordon got a Holy-Ghost revelation that our Lord was really crucified there rather than at the site specified by man-made traditionalism & religiosity.  Nearby, in the Garden Tomb, you will receive the elements of leavenless crackers & Welch’s grapejuice as a point of contact to release your faith with your mind’s eye on what happened here.  Many have visions right in front of the tomb.  The tour allows for the free exercise of all nine gifts at every site we visit on the tour.  You’ll have a chance to touch the tomb itself as a contact faith-release.  An enticing chance to be saved will be offered at the close of each service held at these sites.  How wonderful to bring your unsaved loved ones on this tour and watch them get saved, healed, baptized, filled with the Holy Ghost, and on fire Baptismal Service in the Jordan Riverfor Jesus!  Hallelujah!

One of the most wonderful experiences you can have is to be baptized or re-baptized as many times as you wish in the Jordan River as a testimony to salvation and a point of contact for you to receive whatever blessing you need.  Brother Sutkof will be joined by Rabbi Mordechai Lemsley Goldberg or some other anointed man of God as they baptize the tour participants in the waters of the Jordan River.  Hallelujah!  Many have been saved, healed, delivered, and filled with the Holy Ghost as they emerged from the Jordan’s chilly waters.  Glory to God!


The Upper Room of the Great Day of PentecostYou will visit the site of the Last Supper and the descent of the Holy Ghost on that first Pentecost and will participate in a Pentecostal, Holy-Ghost, tongue-talkin’ prayer meeting with anointed ministers laying hands on you to be filled with the Holy Ghost.  Imagine the Upper Room strewn with the trembling bodies of those slain under the power of God…  Hallelujah!  What a marvelous time in God in the very site which marks the Birthday of the Church and the supernatural coming of the Holy Ghost in a mighty baptism to launch the church on its mission of evangelizing the world.  What a wonderful way to have your life and ministry revitalized and regain a new vision for harvesting lost souls!


The Sea of Galilee

For some good Christian fun we will spend a day on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, picnicking, worshipping, flowing in the gifts, and receiving faith-filled, miracle teaching.  In the afternoon, we’ll spend a couple hours releasing our faith to walk on the waters of Galilee just as Jesus did in accordance with his promise in John 14:12:  “He that believeth on me the works that I do shall he do also…”  Success in this area has been only sporadic and brief over the years, but we welcome everyone on the tour to exercise their faith muscle as they step out based on the Word.  There is much laughter, humbling, and functioning in the gifts as we take the plunge of faith, but oh the joy when one of us hits the necessary faith-level!

 The Mount of Olives

In a clearing on the Mount of Olives near Bethany, we will have a beautiful praise and worship sunrise service, singing songs to welcome the Lord to return for his Bride.  We will receive prophetic teaching from a well-known Bible teacher and will finish the service with a prayer service asking the Lord to hasten his coming and inviting the unsaved to get their salvation-ticket punched for the great heavenbound glory train.  At each and ever site we visit, we are ever ready to pray for deliverance for the sick and afflicted.  All you have to do is ask.  Our tours are always accompanied by several anointed men of God and you’re always welcome to approach them to receive a touch from God.  After the praise and worship service on Olivet near Bethany we will view the fissures at the foot of the Mount of Olives which serve as a sign of the fast-approaching Second Advent.

 The Valley of Megiddo

One of the most exciting excursions on the Blessing Holy Land Tour for folks who wish to join us is the day-trip to the Valley of Megiddo, the future site of the great Battle of Armageddon where we will join our Blessed Lord in slaughtering the ungodly when we return to earth following the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and the Judgment Seat Reward Celebration which takes place in heaven during the Great Tribulation.  As a foretaste of that great event, those who wish to participate will be provided with everything they need to engage in a paintball war in the Valley of Jezreel near Tel Megiddo.  Those who do not wish to participate may either stay behind in Jerusalem or travel elsewhere at their own expense. 


The Temple Mount

The final day of the Blessing Holy Land Tour will be spent in Jerusalem.  A service will be held, overlooking the Temple Mount, receiving prophetic teaching and reminiscing about the events which are soon to take place on the Temple Mount.  You will receive speculative teaching concerning the when and how of the removal of the Muslim Dome of the Rock which paves the way for the Abomination of Desolation.  We will look at the events of the revelation of Antichrist in the Holy of Holies in the Third Temple and will explore the prophetic unfolding of the events leading up to and taking place during the Millenial Reign of Christ with its renewed Temple sacrifices.  After a short prayer service, we will disband and folks will be allowed to wander the streets of Jerusalem, shopping, eating lunch and dinner, and chatting with the Jerusalemites.  You might even have the pleasure of leading one of them into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!

We know you will be blessed on the Blessing Holy Land Tour this coming September.  Be sure and register as early as possible to reserve your spot among the 40 pilgrims allowed on this tour.  Contact the church office at Faith Confession Tabernacle for more details.  Let the blessing begin!
