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

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.

 

 

 

THE FATHER’S SON

Psalm 2:7-8: “I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.’”

When I was following Judaism, as an Orthodox Jew I could not conceive the idea that G-d has a Son. It seemed ludicrous; especially when Christians told me that not only does G-d have a Son, but His name is Jesus.
Jesus! He was only a prophet and a Rabbi. Yes, He performed miracles; but G-d’s Son…never!
And some Christians even told me that Jesus is not only the Son of G-d, but He is G-d…blasphemy!

Well here’s the thing, they were correct. Psalm 2:7-8, among many other scriptures, clearly show that G-d has a Son. Not only is He G-d’s Son, but He is Jewish and, when He lived on earth, He would have been called Yeshua, His Hebrew (actually Aramaic) name – which means ‘Salvation’.

Imagine my utter shock and surprise when I realised that Yeshua is not only G-d’s Son, but He is the ‘Mashiach’ – the Messiah – that I, as a Jew, have been waiting for.
How did I discover this? Through many Old Testament scriptures, including the book of Psalms in the ‘Tenach’ (Old Testament): Psalm 22:12-18: “Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me. They gape at Me with their mouths, like a raging and roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted within Me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue clings to My jaws; You have brought Me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded Me; the congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet; I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. They divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots."

How could I deny that these words, written by King David, speak of the crucifixion of Yeshua.
All my Jewish Orthodox background tried to fight against this; however I could not deny what was written in this Psalm. And this is one of many Old Testament scriptures pointing to Yeshua.

Now Psalm 18:35 declares: “You have also given me the shield of Your salvation”. And in Isaiah 59:20 the prophet writes: “And as a Saviour he will come to Zion, turning away sin from Jacob, says the Lord.”

Who is this Saviour who will turn away sin from Jacob (the Jewish people)? Yeshua! And He is the saviour who turns away sin from all who believe in Him and who invite Him into their life.

Scripture records in 1 Peter 2:24, that “Yeshua Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree (the cross).”
Scripture also records that only through Yeshua can mankind be saved from eternal death, to salvation and eternal life in heaven.
John 3:16-17 tells us: “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. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Acts 4:12 clearly says: "For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (but Yeshua)"

To receive salvation, you need to confess your sins and repent of them; then receive G-d’s forgiveness and accept Yeshua as your L-rd and Saviour.

To Jewish people reading this, please catch my heart and my love for you – you are my own flesh and blood; I love you deeply. However, there is no way to attain the forgiveness of sin and eternal life in heaven other than through Yeshua.

Yeshua IS the ‘Mashiach’ (Messiah) that both Jew and Gentile are waiting
for. How do we know this? Yeshua fulfilled ALL that was prophesied about
Him in the Old Testament.
I encourage you; read and study the following OLD TESTAMENT scriptures which all speak of Yeshua: Deuteronomy 18:18, Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 50:6, Isaiah 52-53, Psalm 22:11-18, Daniel 9:25-26 and Zechariah 12:10-11.  
These scriptures are all found in the ‘Tenach’. And when you read them, ask Hashem to show you who they are referring to.

I want to encourage my Jewish brothers and sisters of the flesh; you need to invite Yeshua into your life and accept Him as your ‘Mashiach’, your Saviour in order to secure your eternal future – eternal life in heaven.

I would never ask any Jewish person to stop being Jewish and follow another religion.
However I do want to encourage you to have a personal, intimate relationship with the ‘Mashiach’ that the Jewish people are waiting for – Yeshua.
And accepting Yeshua as ‘Mashiach’ does not stop you from being Jewish.

G-d has a Son; His name is Yeshua.
