The arrival of a march designed to show support for Israel’s 70th anniversary added to the large number of people crowded into the Avatiu wharf-Punanga Nui market area on Saturday morning.

 

Members and supporters of International Christian Embassy Jerusalem Cook Islands branch participated in the march, which started from the Avarua Gateway AOG Church in Takuvaine and progressed to Avatiu harbour, before turning around and ending at the market.

The march began shortly after an open prayer breakfast held at the Avarua Gateway where ICEJ Fiji branch national director Pastor Mikaele Mudreilagi was the guest speaker.

Mudreilagi spoke on the issue of why the ICEJ organisation supports Israel as a nation.

“In terms of competing world views, we can be sort of influenced to hate Israel or not understand Israel or see Israel in a different way.

“But for us in the International Christian Embassy, we always encourage Christians to be investigative in a way and just go to the scriptures and see where our alignment is (with Israel),” Mudreilagi earlier told CINews.

“The alignment is to our messiah Jesus.

Jesus mentioned to the disciples that the message would come from Jerusalem to Judah, to Samaria, to the end of the earth.

“For us from Fiji where we believe the new day begins at the end of the earth, we take that seriously.”
