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

ZEALOUS FOR THE ‘GREAT COMMISSION’

Isaiah 52:7: “How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!””

I would like to ask a question: How zealous are you for the ‘Great Commission’?

In 4 books of the bible, the church is given a command to take the gospel to all nations, and in the books of Luke 24:47 and Acts 1:8, we are told to begin with the Jewish people.

Yet how much of the church is zealously fulfilling the ‘Great Commission’ by sharing with people the Good News of salvation that comes through Yeshua?
As believers in Yeshua, we should mix with sinners and be G-d’s instruments to lead them to salvation.

I would like to ask another question: How much of the church is zealous for the salvation of the Jewish people; even though the bible clearly instructs the Gentile Church to “provoke the Jewish people to salvation”.
We see this in Romans 11:11-14: “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.”

In fact G-d showed His intention to use the church to take the Good News of salvation to the Jewish people when He spoke to Moses in Deuteronomy 32:21: “They (the Jewish people) have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation (the church); I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.”

So, are you zealous for the salvation of the Jewish people? Are those of you who know Jewish people fulfilling your G-d given mandate as a believer by taking the gospel to the only people group mentioned BY NAME in the bible regarding salvation – the Jewish people? If you don’t know Jewish people, are you at least earnestly praying for their salvation?

In John 21:15-17 we read the following account: “So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.””

So, who are the sheep that Yeshua is referring to?

It can’t be the church, as there was no church at the time Yeshua spoke these words.
And Yeshua came only to the Jewish people – Matthew 15:22-24: “And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.” But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.” aBut He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.””
Another thing, Peter was called as an Apostle to the Jews.

The sheep that Yeshua is referring to is clearly the Jewish people. And Yeshua is Jewish and His family of the flesh are the Jewish people.
So, are you “tending and feeding” Yeshua’s family of the flesh – the Jewish people?

Again I ask the question: How zealous are you for the ‘Great Commission’?

I end with the following scripture - 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.”

 

 

 

GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS

There is a beautiful song that is sung: “What a faithful G-d have I, what a faithful G-d; what a faithful G-d have I, faithful in every way.”
Another song declares: “Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness; morning by morning new mercies I see…”
How true these two songs are; G-d is so faithful.

G-d has been faithful to His covenant made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and He has faithfully given the land of Israel to “their descendants after them” – the Jewish people.

G-d has been faithful to the Jewish people and Israel – never letting them down … even in the face of their disobedience.

In fact, to this day, G-d’s faithful hand is on Israel. And He is faithfully returning the Jewish people to the Promised Land, just as He promises in His word.
He is also faithfully gathering in His Jewish remnant to salvation.

So, should we be amazed that, though thousands of rockets were fired on Israeli towns and cities over the past month, so few Israelis were or injured?
You see, G-d has always promised to be Israel’s defender and to fight for Israel. So why should we be surprised at G-d’s faithfulness?

In fact, a Hamas terrorist said: “Their G-d changes the path of our rockets in mid-air”.

G-d says in Joel 3:16: “But the LORD will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel”.
And He has faithfully kept His word.

And G-d is faithful to you and to me.
G-d will never let you down. Deuteronomy 7:9 declares: “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments”.

In all situations, trust G-d and be obedient to His will for you.

Yet, there is one battle that you really need G-d to fight for you - the battle for your soul. And it is here, where we see G-d at His most faithful – John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

G-d has, through His Son Yeshua, been faithful to forgive your sins through the work of the cross.
He is also faithful to grant you eternal life in heaven, through the death and resurrection of Yeshua.
All you need do is believe in the death and resurrection of Yeshua; confess your sins and repent of them; receive His forgiveness and invited Yeshua to be your L-rd and “Mashiach”.

And it is when one comes to faith in the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua, knowing that your sins are forgiven you and knowing that your eternal future – eternal life in heaven – is secure, that one truly appreciates the faithfulness of our faithful G-d.
