Prayer Points: Breaking new ground in the U.S.

February 09, 2022

Quick! Name a country where Jewish Voice has ministered. Ethiopia. Zimbabwe. India. Yes, yes and yes. And don’t forget Poland, Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico. The list goes on. However, despite the international nature of our ministry, a burden for the United States, where we are headquartered, has never been far from Rabbi Jonathan Bernis’ heart. We frequently ask you to pray for Messianic Jewish congregations in Africa and other parts of the world. But the Messianic Jewish Movement in ...

Or maybe you’ve been unsure how the Old and New Testaments fit together regarding God’s love for Israel. If so, this collection of Bible verses is for you. It outlines Israel’s place in G...

Israel responds to terror attack in UAE

January 28, 2022

“All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before Him . . .” Psalm 22:27 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. Today, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we remember and honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Those who suffered and died at the hands of the ideological madness of Nazism, and those who were able to escape. Days of remembrance like this are critical. We remember so that we never forget . ...

Prayer Points: Beginning 2022 with greater clarity

January 26, 2022

Like many of you, we have watched with a growing sense of urgency as world events have unfolded these last two years. We have sought the Lord in prayer and are beginning 2022 with greater clarity and priority in several areas. We consider these priorities “apostolic” in nature as they involve the elements of reaching out, sending, and breaking new ground. Four apostolic ministry priorities for Jewish Voice in 2022 are: Scouting to reach “all Tribes” Helping build the North American Me...

Alleged talks between Israel and Libya . . . and what they mean

January 21, 2022

“The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace.” Psalm 29:11 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. No matter what you’re facing today – personal challenge, obstacle to faith or overwhelming brokenness – the Scriptures promise that God is close at hand to bring strength and peace. There’s no greater promise we have from God – which was ultimately realized in the coming of His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), the Messiah. That’s why I hope that, as you claim God’s stren...

January 14, 2022

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem— “May those who love you be at peace!’” Psalm 122:6 (TLV) Shalom, my friend. Peace can seem so far away. Our world is rife with animosity and anger, confusion and uncertainty and even fear of the unknown. That’s why God commands us in the Scriptures to pray. It’s to His glory – and our greatest good – that we lay our burdens at His feet. This week, I encourage you to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. But I also encourage you to pray...

Prayer Points: You can make a difference by praying for our 2022 Outreaches

January 12, 2022

At the start of each year, we go on “scouting trips” to locations we are planning or prayerfully hoping to hold Outreaches. This year, however, will be different than previous years. For the first time, rather than by staff members from our Jewish Voice U.S. headquarters, scouting will be done exclusively by our Africa staff in partnership with local Messianic congregation leaders. We are excited about these indigenous leaders making local connections and doing the “on the ground” investigati...

Buried paperwork, delayed permits and COVID regulations threatened this Medical Outreach to Garamwera, Zimbabwe. But when the Lord opens a door, who can shut it?

It was our first full-scale Medical Outreach in Zimbabwe since before the pandemic, and it was also an important follow-up to our food distribution visit...
