Mount Carmel, Mount Arbel, Armaggedon Valley

On top of Mount Arbel. Close toe the Valley of the Doves leading down to and overlooking the Sea of Galilee. There were tons of zealot caves dug into white faced cliffs. It was really amazing. Lesson learned here: "Build God's Kingdom & Not My Own!" Eg: Simon Peter. Peter was saved by his faith and decided to follow Jesus. BUT then the next day he was right back in the fishing boat going about his life as usual. He was supposed to start fishing for men, but went back to his routine. He wasn't catching anything. Then Jesus caught up with him, told him to try the other side of the boat and they pull in a TON of fish. SO much they almost sank! That event really changed Simon Peter and he understood his mission was no longer among the waves, but among men. A hard thing to accept! How was he going to provide for his family and himself. He had to quit he day job, you know! Same with us and myself. It's much easier for me to simply work day to day as a designer in my office. It is easy, fun, and doesn't require the faith needed to "lay down our own nets and walk with Jesus.

Overlooking the Sea of Galille.
Picture coming later show us hiking down from up here!!!

The Armaggedon Valley looking down from Mount Carmel.

Mt. Carmel. A pretty intense place. Where Elijah burnt his sacrifice and the killed all the Baal servants and prophets and then demanded that Isreal follow God as the one true God and live with out doubt, or waviering.
