Christmas Gift

The apple above is a variety called Odem, released this year by Ben-Dor Fruits in Yesud Hama’ala, Israel.  Joseph “Seffi” Ben-Dor has one of the only apple breeding operations in the world specifically geared to a warm climate; he cultivates tens of thousands of apple seedlings in his effort to hopefully give the gift of another “Anna apple” to the world.

Two thousand years ago another gift was given in Israel, fulfilling the circa 700 B.C. prophecy of Isaiah that promised

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. ” (Isaiah 9:6-7)

This was fullfilled with the birth of Jesus, sent to the earth by God because “God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotton Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

It is our wish that you accept this Christmas gift.  Merry Christmas
