Can Russia Quell Further Aggression?

February 01, 2019

As a skier in a blue jacket and red pants slalomed down Mount Hermon in northern Israel, two vapor trails and a blast lit the sky. Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system had intercepted a medium-range surface-to-surface missile that Iran had fired into the popular ski resort from Syria. The missile had been fired from a location where Syria had promised not to host Iranian military personnel. Israel contends the missile aimed at Israeli civilians was a message from Syria and Iran: A ...

This is a choice no child should ever have to make!

January 30, 2019

She doesn't know it, but her next drink could literally be the death of her. If only Naomi was not so terribly thirsty. Maybe then she'd think twice before she dipped her plastic drinking cup into the reddish-brown mudhole at the edge of her village. But she can't. She won't. It's her village's primary water supply… and one of the few sources of water for miles around. Naomi has no choice but to drink. Her thirst always wins. Before long, she could be dreadfully sick. With cholera. Or i...

Prayer for Israel – February

January 30, 2019

February 1‒7 Prayer for Israel Believers in Israel Of Israel’s 8.5 million people, only about 2 percent are Believers in Yeshua (Jesus).

He Hid in the Only Safe Place

January 25, 2019

Holding what meager possessions he’d been allowed to carry with him, Bart Stern adjusted to having just been shoved inside a small railroad car for cattle. It was the summer of 1944 in Hungary, and Bart was just 17 years old. He and his three brothers sang songs to lift their spirits as they watched more people herded inside the small car. They must have wondered how things had deteriorated to this. Eleven years earlier, in 1933, Adolf Hitler had been appointed Chancellor of Germany and began...

Pray with us for wide-open opportunities

January 24, 2019

“For a great door has opened wide for me, though many are in opposition.” ―1 Corinthians 16:9 TLV This is an important verse to us at Jewish Voice, and we refer to it often. The English Standard Version (ESV) says it this way: “For a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” In this new year, we are looking at the many doors of opportunity that the Lord is opening for us. We are asking Him to open them wide and that, as we step through, our minis...

Why Messianic Judaism is Good for the Body of Messiah

January 22, 2019

January 22, 2019

But that’s only part of the story… Ballet stared at the clinic workers through empty eyes. His belly was badly swollen. It was clear that death was stalking this child.

The contaminated...

Pompeo Pledges U.S. will Eliminate Hezbollah from Lebanon

January 18, 2019

Iran is keeping the Middle East in turmoil and targeting Israel, charged U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week during half-hour speech at the American University in Cairo. “America’s penchant for wishful thinking led us to look the other way as Hezbollah, wholly owned subsidiary of the Iranian regime, accumulated massive arsenal of approximately 130,000 rockets and missiles,” Pompeo explained. “We won’t accept this status quo. Our aggressive sanctions campaign against Iran is also ...
