YESHUA THE BEST MEDICINE PDF Print E-mail

A Russian Israeli couple, Lana* and Jerry*, now living in Australia reconnected with a local GP who had helped take care of their sick daughter when she was a child. Dr Noel* has since ceased practising medicine and is now a full-time pastor. During the friendly visit the couple asked, "Why do you have such a strong love for Israel." Dr Noel responded, "My Saviour came from the Jewish people, and without him I'm nothing." Lana said that she felt a need to get back to the roots of her Jewish religion. Dr Noel replied boldly, "What you need is Yeshua!" Praise God that Lana agreed, "Yes, I do need Him." Please pray as we begin to minister lovingly to this precious Jewish family.

 
PHILLIP, MORRIS DRAW TOGETHER PDF Print E-mail

New Jewish believer Morris* shared his testimony with young rabbi Phillip* at an Orthodox Jewish event. Since then they have become great friends despite their significant theological differences. Rabbi Phillip continues to invite Morris to shiurim (lessons) and social events, and dialogue about the identity of the Messiah, including watching debates by Messianic apologist Dr Michael L Brown. This kind of friendship between an Orthodox rabbi and a Messianic Jew is a promising sign of the times. Please pray that Rabbi Phillip will soon recognise Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah that the Orthodox community awaits. (*Names changed for privacy)

 
MOVED BY LOVE FOR ISRAEL PDF Print E-mail

At a Jewish Community forum on the proposal to move the Australian embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Elly met an Israeli woman who is teaching Hebrew to a member of her Messianic congregation in Canberra. She asked if Elly was Jewish or Christian. Elly said she'd studied the Tanach (Old Testament), celebrated the feast days and loved Israel. Then the member of the congregation mentioned how she observed Shabbat along with around 30 others who loved Israel and the Jewish people. "Our congregant told her that we are Messianic and invited her to come and celebrate Shabbat with us," Elly shared with excitement. The Israeli woman is now very interested in attending a service and meeting so many who love Israel. Please pray that the Lord will continue to draw her to Himself.

 
ANCIENT RITE TO BLESS BIRTH PDF Print E-mail

 Barry needed to collect a few things at his local Jewish kosher supermarket. Jeremy, the Orthodox shop owner has become a family friend over the past 7 years. Just before Barry left the shop, he felt the need to tell Jeremy that soon he was to become a grandfather. "His face lit up, and as he was walking with me to my car, for the first time in our friendship he asked would I share in a mitzvah (a religious good deed) and put on tefillin to bless the birth." Tefillin are a set of small black leather boxes containing scrolls of parchment inscribed with verses from the Torah. They are worn by male observant Jews during weekday morning prayers. Barry accepted the invitation. "I knew then that God's mitzvah was not only to be presented on my forehead and my arm but He had placed His divine mitzvah upon my heart." Barry said that Jeremy was fully aware that he and his family were followers of Yeshua as Messiah.

 
EVANGELISM IN THE AIR PDF Print E-mail

On a return trip from Israel to the US, veteran evangelist, Doug, was seated next to Yitzhak,* a young Hasidic man. Yitzhak was curious about Doug's book, What the Rabbonim say about Moshiach, and they fell into a deep discussion of the Scriptures. Doug was not only able to look at some of the Messianic prophecies with him, but also to open up the New Testament and read of their fulfilment, and how the Apostles and Jesus applied these prophecies to Himself. A doubly strong picture of Messiah!
