Meeting between Rabbinical Students and Messianic Jews!
As a result of my two meetings with my professor friend and the rabbinical students, we are planning a first of its kind meeting between rabbinical students and Messianic Jews! The two meetings last week were just a foretaste of more deeper discussions and friendships to come.
As well as sharing my faith we discussed what was in common with Orthodox Jews and Messianic Jews.
They too believe that Israel will be head of the nations; all the nations of the world flowing to the mountain of the Lord, coming to the house of the God of Jacob to worship the Messiah in his temple. They mentioned that a sure sign that we are near the time of the Messiah?s reign in Jerusalem is the American worldwide evangelical interest and support of Israel. Interestingly, they didn?t mention England. They are aware there are 90-100 million evangelicals in America and that some of them are just as zealous as they are for the establishment of Israel as head of the nations.
Please pray for us as we arrange this coming meeting and draw up rules and guidelines.
Last week I became friends with the cultural advisor to the president of Israel, Shimon Perez. Her name is Yael. She and representatives from the ministry of tourism were both so touched by my testimony and presentation that they decided straight away to send me 30 Israeli groups.
Yesterday morning I had a surprise visit from my archeologist friend, Eyal Maron. He brought with him trainee tourist guides. We had a very relaxing and very open two hours together. Many promised that when qualified they would bring many groups.
Our plans with the half way house continues, as well as our contact with orthodox who are showing interest, or are now in the process of receiving Yeshua.
We celebrated Independence Day last Monday. From Isaiah 14:2, we learn that the gathering of Israel back to the land is an ensign for the nations. Ensign means God has set up a sign calling for the nations to come and help. In chapter 14:2 strangers (gentiles) are joined to Israel and they cleave to her.
Blessings in the name of Yeshua
