[Israel] Rocket fire lights up the Strip

September 17, 2021

“You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light.” 2 Samuel 22:29 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. I chose this week’s verse because it is a powerful reminder that we don’t face the darkness of the world alone. As we look at some the latest news from Israel, I strongly encourage you to focus on the eternal light of God that does not waver or fade. Join me in prayer that as the world grows darker, the Jewish people would continue to be drawn to the light of God and accept Yeshua (...

Yom Kippur – A Profound Time to Explore the Jewish Roots of Christianity

September 16, 2021

Are you missing out? If you read only the New Testament, chances are you are missing the richness of the New Testament visible by understanding its Jewish roots, the very foundation upon which it was laid. God sent His promised Messiah, Jesus, to Earth to live among us within the context of Jewish faith and history found in the Old Testament. Jesus was Jewish. He lived a Jewish life and taught with authority from the Old Testament as the One fulfilling its prophecies. He did not come to star...

Tensions grow with Israel’s neighbors, here’s how you can pray

September 09, 2021

“From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.” Psalm 3:8 (NIV) Shalom, my friend.

Israel is also dealing with continued unrest in Gaza and growing tension with Syria. So please join me and all of us here at Jewish Voice Ministries International in praying for God’s will to be done in Israel – and for His grace, protection and bless...

Prayer Points: Praying in the Jewish New Year

September 09, 2021

The Hebrew year 5782 has begun! Lately, I believe that we’re all sensing, as never before, that we are entering uncharted waters — in our own lifetimes and even in the history of the world. Prophetic voices are already vying to declare what this year will mean and hold, but if we have learned anything since early 2020, it’s that this is a season to expect the unexpected. What remains constant in the midst of change and challenge is our need for the Lord and His faithfulness to meet that nee...

Yom Kippur is upon us

September 08, 2021

This is an especially meaningful time in the Jewish year. We are in the middle of commemorating the biblical Fall Feasts. It started with Yom Teruah — also known as Rosh Hashanah — the start of the Jewish new year, which we just celebrated. Now, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, is upon us. It’s the annual Day of Atonement when God covered and removed the sin of Israel. It’s the perfect reminder that Jesus our Messiah became our complete atonement through His death and resurrect...

What you need to know about Iran’s nuclear threat

September 03, 2021

“Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.” Psalm 5:2 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. Right now, we need to pray fervently. As you’ll read below, the violence along the Gaza Strip continues to escalate as Hamas continues to bankroll protestors and rioters to lash out in violence along the border. And with the nuclear threat of Iran reaching a fever pitch, it’s no exaggeration that Israel – and the entire world – are at-risk. So please join me and all of us here at Je...

The Fall Feasts: Going with God’s Agenda

September 01, 2021

How often do we meet with God in prayer and let Him set the agenda for our time with Him? We quickly come to the Lord when we have a need or experience trouble. We pour out our hearts to Him, bringing our burdens and praying for others. These are all right and valid reasons to draw near to God, and Scripture directs us to do so. (See Hebrews 4:16, James 5:13, Psalm 31:9, Psalm 62:8, Matthew 11:28, 1 Peter 5:7, James 5:16.) But what about when God wants to direct the conversation? It’s exc...
