Yeshua called us to follow him and to become “fishers of men”. As a follower of the Messiah, do you see yourself as a fisherman or woman?
We have found God has given us a great net to use – the internet! And we are always thrilled to hear each and every message that comes in from people responding to what they have seen in our videos and websites. Praise God with us for the great catch of fish he is bringing in! Who wants to go fishing?
Please take a moment to watch my message below.
FISHING ON THE INTERNET
“Hi, my name is M, 25 years old. I am Jewish, and come from a Modern Orthodox family. I have been watching your videos for a while now, and I’m curious to find out more about Jesus. Because of my background I have to be careful in my search. I would like to speak to someone if possible. Thanks.”
Since receiving his message, we have reached out to “M” and provided him with an email address he can contact. Please pray that we will be able to plug him into a believing community nearby, and that he will find the truth he’s earnestly searching for.
This one came last week from ‘Hagar’, a law student in her twenties from Tel Aviv:
“I researched your website, watched a million of your videos, and now want to take an active part in order to learn more and adjust my life in accordance to what you are preaching. Can you please connect me with someone who can give me more information?”
Three more messages like this came in two days after we released a video about the real origin of the rabbinic oral-law. These are exciting days for the gospel in Israel!
Please pray for Hagar, Lilian, David and Gina who got in touch with us asking to be connected. Pray that they would find their Messiah, Yeshua, and be rooted and established in love among other believers in their area.
Some people argue that Isaiah only said a “young woman” would give birth, rather than specifying that she would be a virgin. What does the Hebrew word used in Isaiah 7:14really mean? “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the ‘alma’ shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”If this was about a married woman who got pregnant, there would be no value to the “sign”. Women get pregnant every day. But the prophet is predicting something unusual; he is prophesying that “the alma shall conceive.” Continue reading…
PRAYING LIKE DANIEL PRAYED
It was the first year of King Darius’ reign, and the long exile of the people of Israel in Babylon would soon come to an end. Daniel was reading Jeremiah. Then, the penny dropped…“I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.” (Daniel 9:2-3)
He realized that the prophecy was going to be fulfilled very soon, so he rolled up his sleeves and got praying with all his might. But why? If he knew that God would do this anyway, why did he have to ask for it?Continue reading…
