By published accounts, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem’s (ICEJ) annual parade was a stunning success. Over 5,000 Christians from roughly 80 nations showed up to show their support.
This year had a record number of participants and was the largest to ever take place. Participants marched in unity to show their support and love for Israel and the Jewish Nation. A Swedish representative summed it all up, “We all have one thing in common: God.”
Reports indicate that a spirit of love, fellowship, and unity filled the air. The sound of the shofar, an ancient ram’s-horn trumpet, could be heard along with songs of ‘hallelujah.’ An Iranian representative showed his support for Israel by waving an Iranian flag from which the Islamic symbol had been removed from the center.

ICEJ was founded in 1980 to recognize Jerusalem’s biblical significance and its connection with the people of Israel. It has expanded since then to include millions of Christians, churches, and denominations from around the world. Its primary purpose is to support Israel in its position as God’s chosen people.
The ICEJ is looked upon as a sort of embassy that encompasses many nationalities. Despite the fact that many Jews have fled to Tel Aviv, it makes its home in Jerusalem.
The parade takes place during the Feast of the Tabernacles, an event that draws people of various ethnicities from all over the world. They go to Jerusalem for teaching, worship, and prayer.
The show of unity from visiting participants was particularly relevant in light of the increasing persecution that Jews are facing around the globe.
