The Coming War Over Peace

November 09, 2018

With Tuesday’s mid-term elections behind us, many believe the Trump administration is turning its attention to unveiling a proposal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. In fact, The Times of Israel reported in late October, “If U.S. President Donald Trump does not present his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan next month, France’s President Emmanuel Macron will issue a proposal of his own.” Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas seems to be indicating that he isn’t listen...

What is Jesus’ Name in Hebrew?

November 08, 2018

We read “Jesus” in our English Bibles, but what is Jesus’ name in Hebrew? Jesus’ name in Hebrew is Yehoshua (Yeh-HO-shoo-ah), which, over time, became contracted to the shorter Yeshua (Yeh-SHOO-ah). Yehoshua, and therefore Yeshua as well, means “the Lord is salvation.” In the Greek New Covenant, the word used for Jesus is Iesous (ee-ay-SOOS). Iesous is not a translation of Jesus’ name in Hebrew, but rather it is a transliteration. A translation takes the meaning of a word in one languag...

You touched thousands of lives in Mudanda, Zimbabwe

November 08, 2018

An 86-year-old woman came with her son to the prayer room at the Jewish Voice Medical Outreach in Mudanda, Zimbabwe, this past summer. Members of the prayer team prayed for their needs and then asked them what they knew of Yeshua (Jesus). “We know of Him,” they replied. Outreach Partners told them more about Yeshua and shared the Gospel message. The mother and son understood and made the decision to place their faith in Him as their Messiah. Through the compassionate care they’d received a...

Pivotal Biblical moments will come alive

November 07, 2018

It was one of the most pivotal conversations Yeshua had with His disciples. He began by inquiring who people believed Him to be. Then, He asked them directly, “Who do you say that I am?” “You are the Messiah,” Peter declared, “the Son of the living God!” From that moment on, things changed. While Yeshua told the disciples not to tell anyone else that He was the Messiah, He began sharing plainly with these chosen few that He must suffer, die and be raised on the third day (Matthew 16:...

Unbridled Anti-Semitism

November 06, 2018

The Nazis called them “demonstrations.” But Kristallnacht, “the night of broken glass,” was far more than simple protests; it was a nationwide spate of violent, unbridled anti-Semitism. On November 9 and 10 in 1938, across Germany and in other territories controlled by Hitler’s regime, an estimated 7,500 Jewish-owned businesses were vandalized and looted. Nazi soldiers and Hitler Youth invaded Jewish homes, intimidated and assaulted families, and murdered Jewish men and women who would not co...

Do You Have a Last Will and Testament?

November 06, 2018

Do You Have a Last Will and Testament? If you were to die tomorrow, would you want the government to decide how to allocate your estate? That’s what happens without a will or trust. You’ve made thoughtful choices throughout your life concerning finances. You’ve worked hard to grow and protect the assets God has given you. We’re confident you’d also prefer to decide what happens to them when you’re gone. None of us knows when our last day on Earth will be. That’s why it’s so important...

And it’s true. When someone is enduring a difficult, painful time, it’s hard for t...

You can help 'Vanquish the Forces of Hate'

November 02, 2018

Last Saturday’s massacre in Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue did more than kill 11 innocent people and injure six more. It represented the unavoidable truth that no country – including the U.S. – is immune to the global rising tide of anti-Semitism. Like a volcano that smokes and sputters in the days before it spews its scorching lava, Robert Bowers was but another symptom of the simmering hate in our country as he yelled, “All Jews must die.” It’s up to you and me, my friend, to cool t...

A peek inside our prayer closet ...

October 31, 2018

Several weeks ago our staff here at Jewish Voice Ministries International participated in a ministry-wide week of prayer and fasting. We have done this twice annually for the last couple of years. It has been a powerful experience, both concerning what the Lord does in our own hearts as well as in us as a ministry. This time was no exception. Although the work of ministry continues during these special weeks, the work of prayer increases as we have worship and prayer times available every hou...
