What does it mean to bless Israel?

September 21, 2021

“Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for Israel is for their salvation.”
(Romans 10:1 TLV)

I’m so thankful you share my love and concern for Israel and her people. Together, by meeting needs and sharing the Good News with Jewish people,
you and I play a role in fulfilling prophecy!

The Bible tells us that the spiritual restoration of Israel is essential to the return of Jesus and the fulfillment of God’s plan.

In the verse above — Romans 10:1 — you can see that Paul urged the Gentile churches to pray for Israel’s salvation. Today, we are to do the same. And we must not only pray, but take the opportunities we are given to introduce Jewish people to Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah.

So when we pray for the Jewish people and give to help meet their critical needs, we bless Israel. And this opens the door to share the Good News — the greatest blessing!

In Israel, Jewish Voice works with more than 80 partner organizations to meet important basic needs for the most vulnerable, including groceries for struggling families and dental care for Holocaust survivors.

That’s why our goal is to raise $286,650 this fall to bring help and hope to Jewish people in Israel. This is the amount that we’ve committed to invest in this
urgently needed ministry to provide for our partners there.

Please prayerfully consider sending a gift today to help meet urgent needs and open the door to share the Gospel with God’s Chosen People.

And as I write this, Israel has experienced a spike in coronavirus cases as a result of new variants from India and South America. So many are dealing with the consequences of the pandemic — lost jobs, extended sickness, the death of loved ones and more.

But even beyond the coronavirus pandemic, Israel is under constant threat from enemies near and far:

  • IRAN: The Iranian government sponsors terror groups who openly profess their violent goal: to annihilate Israel and the Jewish people.
  • HAMAS AND OTHER TERRORISTS IN GAZA: These radical groups continue to fight against Israel – from using constant smaller attacks to firing rockets on Jerusalem (which led to the 11 days of violence this spring) and destroying the homes of Israeli citizens.
  • WORLDWIDE HATRED: Anti-Semitism has been on the rise and the outbreak of fighting in May stirred up more incidents of violence against Jewish people in Israel and around the world.

You and I need to stand with Israel because God calls us to bless His people. The salvation of Israel is a key part of God’s plan.
