IT’S ABOUT ME… A JEWISH BELIEVER IN CHRIST.
Before the foundations of the world were ever made, in eternity past….the Lord knew me! I truly believe we can never understand the depth of that statement.
My mother, a Holocaust Survivor told me the story of arriving at Auswiche with her sister and her children, nine year old Teddy and 11 year old Lillian. The four of them were in one line and a Nazi soldier pulled my mother out of the line and put her in a separate line by herself. My mother left that line 3 times to go back to be with her sister and her children. Each time she was beaten and dragged back into the other line. The last time, she was beaten with clubs and physically could not get back.
My mother didn’t know, that the line her sister and children were in meant death in the gas chamber and that the other line meant life…….but God did. You see my mother, years later was going to have me. God knew me from eternity past and graciously provided me with the gift of faith in His Son so I might have Salvation and someday go home to be with The Lord.
IT’S ABOUT YOU, A CHRISTIAN BELIEVER IN CHRIST.
In Romans 2:29 the Apostle Paul refers to Deuteronomy 30 verse 6 when he tells us, “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly; neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit.” In other words Being Born Again is a matter of the Heart not the Flesh!
The True Church, the Eklesia, the Called Out Ones… is a NEW CREATION in which born again Jews and born again Gentiles have mutual fellowship and union with God through the Messiah, Jesus The Christ….Gods Son.
Have you ever stopped to think how much God loves the Gentiles? God loves Gentiles so much that He Blinded His own Chosen people, whom He said are the apple of His eye, to the Truth about Jesus their Messiah. God did this so Gentiles could receive the Gospel and become part of Gods eternal family.
Jesus is not just the Jews Messiah, but He is also the Messiah of the Gentiles. The term Messiah and Christ both mean “Annointed One”.
IT’S ABOUT CHRIST AND HIS COMMAND TO THE TRUE CHRISTIAN CHURCH:
The Apostle Paul in Romans 11:11 answer’s the people who say that God is done with the Jews. Paul say’s, “has the Jew stumbled and fallen from Gods Grace? No. Through their fall, Salvation has come to you my Christian friend. God calls you, to reach out to His Jewish people and make them jealous for Jesus, their Messiah.”
IT’S ABOUT BIRTHPANGS:
Earthquakes in Haiti, Tsunami’s, Starvation, Disease, Sept. 11th, Suicide Bombers and it is especially about the growing Apostasy of the Christian Church. The ENEMY is not outside the Church, but is within, among us as tares that are choking the wheat so their voice today is but a whisper instead of a ROAR.
IT’S ABOUT PROPHECIES COMING TRUE BEFORE YOUR EYES:
- Israel’s becoming a Nation again after 2,000 years in 1948.
- Jerusalem remaining a Cup of Trembling for the World.
- Israel’s crying, peace, peace and safety.
- The forming of the European Union.
- A New Jewish Temple, ready to be built in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount, providing the very place for the Antichrist to begin the Tribulation.
- The re-instituting of a 3,500 year old Jewish sacrificial system to cover sin. A time when my Jewish people will again cry out to God as Isaac did on Mt. Moriah, “Where is the Lamb”.
- The Jewish Nation Finally after 2,000 years looking up and recognizing HIM whom they have pierced.
- But most of all the promise of Jesus to come back quickly.
IT’S ABOUT YOU AND I WALKING INTO OUR FUTURE TOGETHER.
In Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile. God adopted you and grafted you in the vine of believers in HIS Son Y’shua. You and I are both Children of the King.
- We both have Jewish Roots.
- We both recognize Christ before the Manger in the Old Testament.
- We both have Royal Blood running through our veins.
Together, we stand in Faith acknowledging BOTH the Old Testament and the New Testament as the complete and final Word of God to Mankind.
IT’S ULTIMATELY ABOUT…The LORD who bought each of us with HIS Blood!
Jesus promises – to be with you, always…in every situation…No one can hurt you.
The Bible says “if God is for you, who can stand against you!
Jesus bought and paid for you… your orders are clear…don’t stand on the sidelines …get into the Battle.
Don’t ever be ashamed to say the name of the one who died for you. Don’t ever be afraid to defend HIM when people or worse your friends misuse HIS name. Don’t ever be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Listen carefully to the Wind; for soon you will hear a trumpet and His voice ROARING for the last time…IT IS FINISHED ! ! !
May the Almighty, the Ancient of Days, The Lord of Hosts, The Lord God of Israel and HIS TRUE Church, bless and keep you, strengthening you in these LAST DAYS…as you go forth to do the work each of you have been called to do.
