Current events.

This past week in Israel was a very difficult one. It started with an attack on an Israeli Army base near Gaza, continued with the kidnapping of one Israeli soldier, then a young Israeli man was kidnapped as well and later he was murdered. As a result the Israeli Army is now back in Gaza and the tension in the area is very, very high.

My heart is saddened as I see the pictures of one more family who has lost their dear one, when I see the Israeli Army back in Gaza, when I think of the mothers who don’t sleep at night as they worry for their children who are in the front lines. I grieve for the families in the Gaza area who live in constant fear of being bombed and finally when I think of the people who live in Gaza who are victims of fanatic people — people who are being used by the enemy who try to destroy God’s plan.

What can we the Body of Messiah do? How should we respond?

I am reminded by the beautiful words from the Book of Isaiah:

“How lovely on the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who announces peace And brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, And says to Zion, “ “Your God reigns!” Is 52:7

It is very important for us followers of Messiah to step us and bring to the people of this hurting world the Good News that there is hope for peace, that there is a way the one man can live in true peace with its neighbor. But before one man can live at peace with his neighbor first one man needs to be at peace with God. The only way to be at true peace with God is through faith in Yeshua the Messiah. It is written in John 14:6 “Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.”

The people in the World are so focused on the blood that is shed on the streets all over the world — blood that brings division, anger, hatred, and unforgiveness. God called us His followers to focus on His blood, the blood that was shed for you and me, the blood that brings healing and peace – the blood of our Messiah.

We need to pray not only for the “peace of Jerusalem” but for the salvation of all people who live in Israel. The true peace that Messiah brings to us will only come when the people who live in Israel will turn their eyes back to God.

God told us that when the Children of Israel will turn to Him and repent of their sins, that He will hear us and come and heal this hurting land.

“ and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chr 7:14

If we truly want to see true peace in Israel, we need to pray for the children of Israel to turn back to God. We need to stand together as One Body and proclaim the Good News of the peace of Messiah.

  1. When God first revealed His Name to me, He also did impress upon my heart … to the Jew first… meaning that Jews don’t need to become Christians. Christians need to become Jews, true Jews, Jews who believe in the name of the only begotten son of YHWH, their Messiah, who came not to abolish the law but to give perfect judgement through the great magnification of the law to ALL those who will take hold of his covenant,
    that we will be lively stones built to the completion of God’s house of flesh. I believe this is what He will do now, in us who believe , so that we will no longer be Jew nor Gentile, but One in His Spirit.

    All of the apostles were Jews , commissioned by Yahoshua , and they turned the whole world upside down with this great gospel. I believe it can happen again if we will turn to Yah with our whole heart and learn to fear His mighty Name.
    We can see by the gravity of events that are taking place, not only in Israel but in the US and the rest of the planet, what Dyer straights all of humanity is in, because of trying to fix things by using mans own logic and reason in the vanity of our minds.

    That’s why the Holy Spirit was given first ( first fruits) to the apostles, and was promised to their children and to their children’s children and to all those who were afar off ( us) so that we can cease from using our owner judgment by submitting to His Spirit, thus becoming true sons and daughters of Abraham.

    Isaiah 56

    1. Dear Mary,
      You are absolutely correct that the Gentiles were grafted into the Tree of Israel, which means that Jews don’t need to become Christians in order to follow Messiah! However, Gentiles do not need to become Jews in order to be grafted into the Tree (please see Acts 15). As you wrote, everything must be grounded in the Holy Spirit who leads both Jew and Gentile into becoming true sons and daughters of Abraham.
      Thank you for engaging with our material and participating in the work of the ministry!

      Blessings,

  2. Thank you for pointing me to Acts 15, and for your kind words. I’m encouraged in reading the lessons on your website.

    In Acts 15 I believe that Peter corrected the wrong judgment of certain Pharisees . He brought to light that the gentiles didn’t need to be circumcised because God gave them the Holy Ghost too(the purpose of the Holy Ghost is that , by submitting to His Spirit , we may ( and we must) circumcise the foreskin of our hearts, ( both Jew and gentile), purifying our hearts by faith.
    I believe that Jews (physical seed ) have the earthly promise (their land that Yahweh gave them ) AND the promise of the Holy Ghost for those Jews (spiritual) who will have believed in their messiah and are waiting for his coming.. in the near future ( in the twinkling of an eye .. 1 Cor 15:52 … Isaiah 26:20
    Then, 7 years later
    ( at the end of the time of Jacobs trouble) Yahoshua will return with His armies from heaven, (physical coming) to judge all nations as to how they have treated Israel and to redeem the Jews who will believe in their Messiah at his physical coming.
    Rev. 19:14-15

    We are no longer Jew or gentile but One in the Spirit. In that way, I believe that ALL believers become spiritual Jews (Oneness)
    We are being born again by the washing of the water of the word, being One in Messiah. The Messiah was a true Jew.

    Gentiles (cut from a wild olive tree by nature)must be grafted into the good olive tree, (Spiritual Israel), thus becoming true sons of Abraham.
    The natural broken off branches …(physical Jews ) are to be grafted back in, thus becoming spiritual Jews, true sons of Abraham.
    The apostle Paul tells us that Abraham is father of Us all.
    Isaiah 56 -1 Thus saith Yahweh..

    Isaiah 56: 6-7..
    Also the sons of the stranger, ( me) that join themselves to Yahweh ( God of Israel), to serve him, and to love the name Yahweh to be His servants, everyone that keeps the sabbath (to cease from doing his own works ; cease from using his own judgment) from polluting it , and taketh hold of my covenant ; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer : their burnt offerings and their sacrifices (magnified to mean prayer) shall be accepted upon mine alter; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.
    8 -The God of Israel, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, yet will I gather others to him, beside those who are gathered to him.

    Hebrews 3:6 for mine house (spiritual temple) shall be called a house of prayer (house of flesh) for ALL people.

    Malachi 3:16 YHWH hearkened and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared YHWH and that thought upon his name.
    17..And they shall be mine saith Yahweh of hosts in that day when I make up my Jewels; and I will spare them as a man that spareth his own son that serveth him.
