“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann says. “And that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.”

Bachmann also says that “the prophets longed to see the days that you and I live in.”

Her takeaway from the trip, she says, is “that the Jewish state of Israel truly is a miracle of the hand of God.”

Bachmann ran for president in the 2012 cycle but dropped out after finishing in sixth place in the Iowa caucuses.
