The Prophet Isaiah inspired at least one Christian American volunteer to come to Israel during the Thanksgiving holiday to assist Israeli firefighters in extinguishing hundreds of fires that raged last week around the country.
Billy Hirth, Chief of Operations of the Emergency Volunteers Program (EVP), USA, was one of several volunteers who recently came to Israel from America, many of whom are Christians and feel called to stand with Israel. Hirth credited Isaiah 40 as his inspiration for lending a hand.
From the very beginning, I believe that God commands us to stand by them, that we’re to be an advocate for Israel – love them,” Hirth told CBN News in a story by Chris Mitchell. “My first trip here I was given a word, a prophetic word, [from] Isaiah 40: ‘Comfort My people.’ So it means everything to be part of their lives.
