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

UNDERSTANDING THE TIMES

If one looks at the world, we see wars and rumours of wars; we see nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; we see terrible terrorist attacks in the West; Muslims are streaming into the West and Islam appears to be taking over the world.

There are famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in many places;
lawlessness is abounding and Christianity is becoming the most hated religion after Judaism with many Christians being martyred just for being Christians and for not denying their faith.
And Jewish people are coming to salvation in vast numbers.

Although most of what is happening in the world today is very worrying, should we be surprised?
Not at all, as this is part of end-time prophecy.

In fact, all of what is happening today is clearly a fulfilment of prophecy and a sign that we are near the end of the end times and the return of Yeshua - Matthew 24:3-14: “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.””

So, do we panic or do we rejoice?

Those who don’t understand the times will probably panic.
Those who do understand the times will rejoice that we are living in the most amazing times other than when Yeshua was on the earth.
You see, we are in ‘That Day’ – The Day of the return of the Messiah, Yeshua, and we have been born in this time to build the kingdom of G-d and to make the difference.

G-d has given the church a commission, an assignment known as ‘The Great Commission’ - to take the gospel to all nations.
G-d has also called Born Again Believers in Yeshua to be a light for Yeshua in this world. In other words, be a living example of Almighty G-d to people.
Regarding the Jewish people, G-d has called the church to comfort all who mourn in Zion and to proclaim to Zion, “Your God reigns”.
In other words, our Heavenly Father has called the church to give the Good News of salvation to the one people mentioned by name in the bible that the gospel must be taken to…the Jewish people - 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.”

And this commissioning begins in the ‘Torah’ 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.”

However, deception is gaining ground within the church and much of the church stands with Israel’s enemies against Israel.

Yes, we are seeing wars and rumours of wars; we are seeing nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and we are seeing terrible terrorist attacks in the West.

Muslims are streaming into the West and Islam seems to be taking over the world; and there are famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in many places. 
Lawlessness is abounding, and Christianity is becoming the most hated religion after Judaism.

However, the good news is that about every nation has been reached with the gospel and Jewish people are coming to salvation in great numbers like never before.
And Jewish people are making ‘aliyah’ to Israel like never before as G-d continues to fulfil His prophetic word to “bring back Zion to their land”.

Understanding the times!
I believe that we are living in the most exciting time other than when Yeshua was on the earth because we are in the end of the end times and Yeshua, our glorious Messiah and Saviour of the world, is on His way.

Let us pray and ask G-d to help us have a full understanding of the times so that we can be the effective vessels He wants to use to prepare the way for the return of the Soon and Coming King, Yeshua.

 

 

THE SALVATION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

I always tell Christians that if they know Jewish people well, they should be sharing the gospel with them – even if they just use their testimonies.

G-d gave the church a mandate, known as the Great Commission, to take the gospel to all nations.
However, G-d specifically gave the Gentile church a mandate to take the gospel to the Jewish people.
We see this in Romans 11:11-14: “I say then, have they (the Jewish people) 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.”

We clearly see in the above scripture that one of the reasons that Gentiles have been saved is to provoke the Jewish people to jealousy (or emulation) so that they will come to salvation.
Sadly however, the Gentile church has fallen very, very short of this mandate.

Even sadder, I know of Christians who work with or socialize with Jewish people on an on-going basis and do not tell them that they are Christians…how sad.
In fact many times, when Jewish people ask Christians why they travel to Israel frequently or why they frequently attend Jewish events, the answer is “we love the G-d of Israel and we love the Jewish people and Israel”.

Do you? Do you really love the Jewish people?
Personally, I believe if you truly love someone, you will do anything you can to keep that person out of hell…even at the cost of relationship.
Also, if a person loves the G-d of Israel, why deny His Son, Yeshua?
And yes, keeping quiet about Yeshua is the same as denying Him.

However, not every Gentile believer knows Jewish people. So, how then do you fulfil the G-d given mandate to ‘provoke the Jewish people to salvation’?

You earnestly pray for their salvation…fervently and regularly. And no Christian is exempt from this.

•    Pray that the L-rd will thrust out workers into the Jewish harvest field.
•    Pray that the L-rd will lift the partial veil off the hearts and minds of the Jewish people regarding Yeshua that He sovereignly placed there.
•    Pray that the L-rd will give Jewish people courage to come to faith in Yeshua as their L-rd and Saviour.
•    Pray that the L-rd will reveal Himself supernaturally to Jewish people.
•    Bind the Religious Spirit from operating in the hearts of Jewish people.
And, if you know Jewish people but can’t get to them, pray for their salvation by name.

And if you do know Jewish people well, take the first opportunity you get to tell them about their Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.

Finally in Genesis 12:3, G-d, speaking to Abraham and his descendants (the Jewish people), says: “I will bless those who bless you”.

And the best way to bless the Jewish people is to either give them the gospel or pray for their salvation.
