Jerusalem International Convention Center (ICC) Peace Concert
On the evening of Thursday, October 20, the last Peace Concert in Jerusalem was finally held at the International Convention Center (ICC) in Jerusalem. The Peace Concert on the 20th consisted of a concert for Christians and non-Jews in Israel.
Gracias Cantata's performance began with <Chorus of Hebrew Slaves>. <Chorus of Hebrew Slaves> longing to return to Jerusalem. The sorrow of the Hebrews, who had lost their country 2,600 years ago, was felt through the song.
The a cappella group Candlestick sang two songs: <We Wish you a Merry Christmas>, <Angel Praise>. The cheerful and beautiful harmony with the beatbox was enough to delight the hearts of the viewers and give them new joy.
Then, Handel's Messiah stage began. The choir sang <For Unto Us a Child is Born>, <Glory to God>, and <Hallelujah>.
Music praising the birth of Jesus, the Messiah who glorified God, and the resurrection of Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords who rule the human world for eternity, resounded in Jerusalem's International Convention Center (ICC).
Pastor Ock Soo Park, who stood on the podium, preached the gospel of justification through the new covenant through the words of Jeremiah 31.
He said, “No one will be blessed by keeping the law. God loved the Israelites and brought them back to Israel. We are filthy people who have sinned, committed adultery, and have stolen many things, but God loves Israel and us, saying, ‘I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. saith the LORD” Jeremiah 31:34.
God changed the law from the old covenant (law) to the new covenant. He loved us all and said, 'I will remember their sins no more.' He has forgiven all our sins to bless us. He saved us, who were destined to perish, by the great grace of God. I hope that both Jews and Koreans will believe in this gospel and live a blessed life. Thank you,”
The choir continued to perform amid applause from the audience. They sang <Haba Nagila>, <Holy City>, and <Golden Jerusalem>.
The audience, who filled the venue, cheered and stood up and gave thunderous applause.
The message of the gospel resounded in Jerusalem, the center of Israel, at the Jerusalem International Convention Center (ICC).
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of evangelism, we were able to spread the feast of the gospel in Israel where Jesus was 2,000 years ago.
