Why Boats Like This? I’ll Tell You Why.
One of the things the Devil loves to do is to mix some Scripture with some of his lies. We saw it occur on the Mount of Temptation and I am experiencing the same thing here on a regular basis. There are those who like to say that Israel will be destroyed and why would you want to bring Jews to Israel if there is going to be a terrible war there?
It is easy for me to tell you that God has called me to this ministry, but if you haven’t witnessed it by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) I would be wasting my time telling you that. I can however tell you that many thousands across the world have witnessed it – and God has clearly spoken to them concerning the re-gathering of the Jews the second time to Israel.
Isa. 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
For those of you who have been with this ministry for the past years [some even over 40 years] know that God spoke to my Jewish heart to prepare to rescue Jewish people because there is coming another Holocaust and this time it will be global. That they would be running for their lives out of Europe and that I have been called to prepare to rescue many. At the time of hearing this from God we had nothing. No money, and no boat and we were barely surviving ourselves here in Jerusalem. God also made it very clear that the rescue would be by boats as there would be no commercial aircraft flying in or out of Israel at that time. Matt. 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
When I told Connie what I had heard so clearly from God her response was, “Well we best get started, God never makes a mistake”. Somehow with God’s help we will get it done. I thought to myself, she just doesn’t understand, we had nothing to do such a work. Once or twice a week we would go to the marina in Tel-Aviv and walk between the boats, praying and asking God to show us the boat or boats. It took all the nerve I could muster to write those on my mailing list and tell them what I had heard from God, believing they would only say, “Jerry just wants a boat”. But to my surprise money started to come in from those who also had heard this same thing from God, and we were able to purchase our first boat. Today we have 2-boats and have established contacts all over the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, in the Greek Islands, Turkey and Cyprus. The word of what we are doing has reached many Jewish communities throughout Europe and I am in contact with some key people. We have established some communications but need much more emergency communications and we are working on that.
Some tell me that we need ships not boats, and I have asked God the same thing; why boats and why has He shown me the type of boats that we must have? The answer is simple. Ships fall under a completely different set of maritime rules and regulations. Private boats have the freedom to move around unnoticed.
The type of boat is a Turkish Gullet.
But there are many boats still within the range of 40 meters over 130+ feet, private and able to move around the Greek Islands and Turkish Coast without drawing attention. They could carry many more people than the boat we now have. They are for sale in many places along the Turkish Coast because of the poor economy there causing the charter business financial problems. Boats that once would have cost over a million can now be bought for around $400,000. These boats have a full set of sails and a motor that can bring them to around 14 knots for a range of over 1500 miles, with low fuel consumption compared to other vessels this size. It’s the ideal boat to save Jewish lives in the days ahead.
This is a 40 meter (130 foot) Gullet in Turkey
You Could Be Crew On This Boat.
How would this Ministry keep a crew on a larger 40-meter boat? The answer is easy many reading this would in fact be the crew. The crew would consist of 6 who would sign on for one or two months, and others would come and take their place when they leave the boat. The boat would move around in the area of the Mediterranean always close to the ports ready to pick up Jews when the time arrived. Never knowing which crew would be on board when everything goes into action so every crew member would have to consider the possibility of being caught in the middle of the action.
There are many other details that could be discussed at this time but better left for those who decide to take the time to respond. Because there are so many who would want to be considered for this part of the ministry those who are supporters over the past year or so would be considered first. But physical condition age and ability would be a factor and I would be the one who decides who comes to the boat.
This is however like counting the chickens before the eggs hatch. We first need to purchase the larger boat and time is running out, no one knows how long the euro or the dollar will hold any buying power, we do know that many of these boats are coming up for sale in Turkey, and now is the time to start looking and moving out in faith.
If there ever was a time for you to consider a large gift to this Ministry now is that time to do that. If you are one of those who could be interesting in being an active part and being a crew member on the boat (we don’t have yet) you can get in touch with me. Experience would be nice, but not necessary, Joel is a great Captain and good teacher you would just have to come knowing the risk and being able to serve others when they are picked up and brought to Israel.
Please keep in mind the $400,000 is just the purchase price, after that the real cost begins when you own such a boat. But if we manage rotating crews on a vacation type of atmosphere we can off set the maintenance cost to a great deal. Our big obstacle now is the purchase price, please pray time is running out and Jewish lives are at stake.
The importance of this ministry is beyond words to explain. If you will pray and ask God to show you His Will in this – asking what He would have you do, the full meaning of what God has called us to do will come to you.
There are enough reading this report today to make this possible within the next week or less. If you would seriously ask God that question, and then be obedient to what God speaks into your hearts. We all know that the value of the dollar and euro are falling and will fall much more and much faster than many believe. Now is the time to take advantage of what buying power is left to bless the Apple of God’s Eye. Gen. 12:3
For those who say Israel will be destroyed they need to read this Scripture. Zech. 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
We know all hell is about to break loose and there will be a heavy price to pay for the sins of the nation. Yet Israel will survive and the Jews will gather here – for it is written – and the Messiah will return to this place and plant His feet on the Mount of Olives.
For those who want to know how to make a gift to this ministry please read the following.

Personal cheques are still the best way to send support by airmail, and if you are concerned about security you can register the letter. You can send Personal or Bank Cheques.
Cheques from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, are physically sent back for approval and the process takes 6 to 8 weeks. So a Bank transfer or Western Union is much preferred from the above countries.
Make checks payable to:

We have now established a way for you to use PayPal to support this Ministry. We are opening up a store STORE We will be selling two of my books “Gifts of The Spirit Through the Tabernacle” and ” Burned Alive”.

It is important to know that Bank Transfers amount over $9,000 requires a lot of paper work and contracts so please keep each transaction with the Banks under that amount. I realize for most of us that is not a problem. Any dual citizen American/Israeli has a hard time in the banks here in Israel. In fact most Israeli Banks will not accept an American who is a dual citizen because of the American regulations that causes them a lot of paper work.
As long as the mail is running personal checks sent airmail and if necessary registered letter is the cheapest and fastest way to send support.
If God has touched you to bless this Ministry in Israel, I don’t need to tell you how important this support is, and if He hasn’t touched you, there is no way I could make you understand.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, jerry golden
