Pray For the Lord To Open Doors

July 12, 2018

A few weeks ago, our Vice President of Global Outreach spoke to the Jewish Voice Ministries staff about the open doors before us and the opposition we face. He referenced 1 Corinthians 16:9, which says, "for a great door has opened wide for me, though many are in opposition" (TLV). He underscored not only the great outcomes we’ve had but also some of the big challenges we have faced on recent Outreaches. He asked us to pray that the Lord will make us ready as we work to prepare the way for Hi...

The angel answered … ‘Do not be afraid, for I know you are looking for Yeshua who was crucified. Come, see the place where He was lying.’” ―Matthew 28:5-6 They came bearing spices.

The Roman guards trembled and then collapsed as if dead. “Do not fear,” an angel told the women. “He is not here. He has risen, just as He said.” The...

July 06, 2018

‘While the government chants, “Death to Israel,” Iranian protestors are yelling, ‘Forget about Palestine, forget about Gaza, think about us!’ Protestors filled the streets of Iran for multiple days last week demanding their government stop funding terrorists and improve conditions inside Iran.

Show Your Support For Israel

July 02, 2018

I’ve just spent two weeks in Israel and can report to you that thrilling things are happening there! First, I witnessed the great joy and excitement at the recent 70th anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel. And then all of us who love Israel celebrated the great breakthrough of having the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem – acknowledging for the first time that Jerusalem is Israel’s legal and rightful capital.

Join Us In Prayer As We Seek God's Calling

June 29, 2018

Scripture gives us insight into the importance of planning ahead, from the ant in Proverbs 6:6‒8, to the wise virgins in Matthew 25:1‒13 and the builder in Luke 14:28.

At Jewish Voice Ministries, we have a strong sense of the Lord’s calling and, because of that, we desire to be the very best stewards of time, finances and opportunities. We continually seek the Lord regarding H...

Even as the U.S. made the bold decision to leave the blatantly anti-Israel U.N. Human Rights Council (more on that next week), Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah was refusing to comply with a Russian demand that they leave Syria. "Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said Iranian and Hezbollah forces will not withdraw from Syria until the country is ‘liberated’ and its ‘territorial integrity is restored,’” The Jerusalem Post reported this week. Meanwhile, on the other side of the coun...

Heal broken bodies, restore lost hope, transform precious lives

June 19, 2018

It was one of the worst cases our medical team had ever seen. During a recent Medical Outreach to the Lemba people in Mudanda, Zimbabwe, a woman was brought to the Clinic. Her entire body was covered with sores. She was so sick she couldn’t walk. Her eyes were lifeless and gray. And she seemed completely unresponsive – except when she moved or rolled over, which would cause her to scream in pain! On her first day with us, we prayed for her, and our nurses began to clean her sores. Her ...
