Pray for Operation in the Anointing and Authority of the Lord

May 09, 2019

It’s spring, and for Jewish Voice Ministries International, that means congregational visits. Leaders from our U.S. headquarters travel to Africa and meet with congregations that have “sprung up” as a result of the Good News going forth in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. When we bring medical and dental care in Yeshua’s name to these nations, we also desire to see locally-led congregations form that can provide discipleship and fellowship for the new Believers. It’s happening! Currently, more than 120...

Gunman kills one and wounds three at California synagogue: How should we respond?

Three others, including the congregation’s rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, were wounded. Just hours before he attacked, the 19-year-old gunman had reportedly published an online manifesto, in ...

A Surprising Veteran of Israel’s War of Independence

April 30, 2019

Standing with Israel on Yom HaZikaron – Israel’s Memorial Day “You’re doing the right thing, son,” his mother said as they stood at the door. The young man left his home in England and headed for what was still called the “British Mandate of Palestine.” Since 1922, the British had been responsible for the area and were charged with helping establish a Jewish homeland there. In 1947, they turned the matter over to the United Nations. Until it gained sovereignty, the would-be State of Is...

Your Action Today Can Save Many Tomorrow

April 30, 2019

If you look into the eyes of Ze’ev, you can almost see the horrific images that have etched themselves deeply into his memory. Ze’ev was just 14 years old when World War II broke out. He and his family were dragged from their home by the Nazis - and confined in a Jewish ghetto. That wretched place can only be described as a death trap. Still barely a teenager, Ze’ev witnessed executions, brutal torture and many other things that are simply too terrible to write about. That wretched pl...

Passover Gifts for Holocaust Survivors

April 30, 2019

Holidays can be especially lonely for Holocaust survivors who have no relatives nearby.

Recently, one such event took place when Holocaust survivors were invited to a Passover Seder. They enjoyed a delicious Passover meal and dined to live music performed by a Messianic wor...

Common Heroes

Remembering the Holocaust with Israel on Yom HaShoah One way each of us can fight anti-Semitism is to make sure the Holocaust is not forgotten. The generation of people who survived the Holocaust more than 70 years ago is dwindling. What will happen when they are gone? Many of them fear that the very real and horrific things they went through will fade from public awareness after they are no longer around to remind us. We must make sure that doesn’t happen. That’s why we join with Isr...

The future of Israel's government remains uncertain

April 26, 2019

Benjamin Netanyahu survives tight election, but the future of Israel’s government remains uncertain. Last week Israeli voters reelected Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister of Israel. After an election cycle steeped in controversy and a victory of slim margins, Israel – and even the world – is watching as Prime Minister Netanyahu builds his new coalition and what that may mean for the future of Israel’s government. Many in Israel are predicting a similar coalition as the Prime Minister’...

Messianic Jewish Passover Devotion, Day 7

April 25, 2019

God Gives Us Hope for Today On Passover night in Egypt, the Hebrew slaves were told to eat their meal in haste. They were to be dressed and ready to go, with shoes on and staff in hand. They were to expect God to show up for them at any moment. God wants us to live with that kind of expectancy of Him every day. He is always reaching out to us, always giving, always ready to interact with us. How do we live with expectancy for this day? Remembering how God has “shown up” for us in the past...

Messianic Jewish Passover Devotion, Day 6

April 24, 2019

God Sets Us Free Passover freed the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Each one among the Children of Israel was born a slave to Pharaoh. They knew nothing else until God stepped in and delivered them. The Bible tells us we were formerly slaves to sin (Romans 6:6 NKJV). But now that we have placed our faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), we no longer need to serve the master of sin. We have been given a new nature, the nature of Messiah. Though Yeshua died to set us free from this slaver...
