TO THE JEW FIRST

ROMANS 1:16: “FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD TO SALVATION FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES, FOR THE JEW FIRST AND ALSO FOR THE GREEK.”

 

 


PROVOKE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO SALVATION

ROMANS 11:11: "I SAY THEN, HAVE THEY (THE JEWISH PEOPLE) STUMBLED THAT THEY SHOULD FALL? CERTAINLY NOT! BUT THROUGH THEIR FALL, TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY (SO THAT THEY MAY BE SAVED), SALVATION HAS COME TO THE GENTILES"

 

 

 

JEWISH PEOPLE ARE NOT JUST 'ANOTHER PEOPLE GROUP'; THEY ARE THE MOST STRATEGIC PEOPLE GROUP

G-D’S CONTINUING ROLE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE

Jeremiah 16:14-16: “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “that it shall no more be said, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. “Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says the LORD, “and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.””

Even though Jeremiah 16:14-16 prophesies the rise of anti-Semitism in the Last Days – and we can all see that anti-Semitism is on the rise across the globe, there is a deep concern for the survival of the Jewish people.

Recently, the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported the following:
“Since 13 September 2015, 40 people have been killed in terrorist attacks, 511 people (including 4 Palestinians) have been injured, there have been 155 stabbing attacks (including 76 attempted attacks), 96 shootings, 45 vehicular (ramming) attacks, and one vehicle (bus) bombing”.

Innocent Israelis and Palestinians are being attacked by pedestrian terrorists, blinded by a mixture of radical Islam and misguided nationalism.

Though some of the most vicious attacks are taking place in Israel and France, anti-Semitism continues to rear its ugly head in other Western countries, especially in the United Kingdom where there were 924 anti-Semitic incidents recorded in 2015.

Now is a critical time to reach out to the Jewish people. And now is the time for Christians throughout the world to take up their G-d give mandate to comfort the Jewish people found in Isaiah 40:1-2: “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned”.

We know that the one who is behind all anti-Semitism is the devil and he is trying to destroy the Jewish people because he understands that G-d has a continuing role for them.

And Almighty G-d does have a continuing role for the Jewish people. We see this in Romans 11:11-15: “I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”

I believe that the turning of the Jewish people to Yeshua will lead to a world-wide revival and to the very return of Yeshua.
I also believe that this world-wide revival that the church is eagerly waiting for will not happen without the Jewish people.

Which is why now more than ever, the Gentile church needs to take up its G-d given role, found in Romans 11:11-14: “But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.”

There is a clear biblical pattern, given by Yeshua Himself in Acts 1:8 to take the gospel out to all the nations beginning with the Jewish people: “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

In Romans 11:25-27, ‘Rav’ Shaul (Paul) writes: “For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins”
All of history is leading up to this great Day of Deliverance. Jewish people will survive because God is faithful to His promises; but that does not mean we will not face difficult times ahead.

So please pray for the salvation of the Jewish people, and if you know Jewish people well, tell them about the good news of salvation and about their Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.
Many Gentile Christians tell me that they love the Jewish people and that they have a number of Jewish friends.
Well if you truly love your Jewish friends, you need to tell the about salvation and Yeshua. If you don’t, I doubt that you love them that much.

True love is found in 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
And if you truly love your Jewish friends, you will give them the gospel so as to ensure that not one of your Jewish friends will perish, but that they all come to repentance and eternal life in heaven.

Now is the time to stand with the Jewish people and to tell G-d’s chosen people about the Messiah, Yeshua.

To those of you who have given Jewish people the gospel and who fervently pray for the salvation of the Jewish people as well as for their protection and the protection of Israel, thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring, standing up and praying for the Jewish people at this time.

 

 

 

THE GREATEST MIRACLE

What is the greatest miracle of our generation?
Is it the fall of Communism; the Electric powered car; the internet and social media?

For Jewish people, indisputably, the greatest miracle must be that after the Holocaust, the Jewish people picked themselves up and rebuilt Jewish life, Jewish communities, and especially, the Jewish homeland, Israel.

Of course, all of this is attributed to the faithfulness of Almighty G-d to His Covenants, His Prophetic Word, and His promises to His chosen people, Israel.

Is there anything more extraordinary than that the Jews, who were singled out for extermination because of their faith, should still want to embrace the same faith and still be Jewish?

Which is why when Rabbis, Jewish leaders, Christians and church leaders tell Jewish people who have come to faith in Yeshua that they are no longer Jewish, they don’t only slap Jewish believers in the face, I believe they slap Almighty G-d in the face.
And for Christian and church leaders who tell Jewish people who have come to faith in Yeshua that they are no longer Jewish, they certainly slap Yeshua in the face as He is the “Lion of the Tribe of Judah of the lineage of King David” – “But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”” (Revelations 5:5).
Like it or not, Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah and the Jewish Saviour of the world.

Jewish people coming to faith in Yeshua, does not mean that we are changing or giving up our Jewish culture and heritage; neither does it mean that we are changing our religion.
The definition of ‘religion’ is: “A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.”

Also, religion is often used by man to manipulate mankind into following a certain doctrine for man’s own purpose…Islam is such an example.
This kind of belief system always brings death – first, spiritual death and, sometimes, physical death.

Which is why I do not follow a religion; I have a personal, intimate relationship with the Most High G-d, the G-d of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.
I follow Almighty G-d, not man or man’s doctrine.

There is only One True G-d, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – The Father, His Son, Yeshua, and The Holy Spirit.

The ‘Tenach’ (Old Testament) begins with these words in Genesis 1:1-2: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”

Genesis 1:26 declares: “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.””

Nothing in the Bible is written by accident, and I find it interesting that the Bible says: “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness””, not ‘Let Me make man in My image according to My likeness.’

Who does the “Us” and the “Our” refer to? Certainly not the angels.
Man is made in the image of G-d not in the image of angels, and angels cannot create.
I believe that Genesis chapter 1 makes clear reference to a Triune G-d. Also, the “Spirit of G-d” (Holy Spirit) is mentioned in the second verse of the Bible in Genesis 1:2.

When I came to faith in Yeshua, I certainly did not lose my love for my people of the flesh, the Jewish people; neither did I lose my love for ‘Eretz Yisrael’, the Land of Israel.
In fact, even though I went to a Jewish school and followed Orthodox Judaism, since coming to faith in Yeshua, I have more of an understanding of the Bible, the Prophetic Word of G-d, and G-d’s heart for the Jewish people and the Jewish Homeland, Israel.

You see, when I came to faith in Yeshua, I never stopped being Jewish. I became more Jewish and I am, in fact, a completed Jew.

Jewish people live by the ongoing miracles of Divine intervention as does the Land of Israel exist by the ongoing miracle of Divine intervention.
And Almighty G-d is continuously performing miracles for you and for me and for mankind. We just sometimes fail to recognize the miracles of G-d.
However, the greatest miracle of all is the miracle of salvation; which is why it is vital to take the Gospel out to both Jews and Gentiles.

To my Jewish brethren, don’t every think that coming to faith in the Jewish ‘Mashiach’, Yeshua, strips you of being Jewish.

The fact is that when you come to faith in Yeshua, you become a completed Jew.
