Holocaust Miracle

January 24, 2018

Quietly, they hid ‒ and feared for their lives. Eight-year-old Marcel Drimer, his little sister and their mother lay down on a stretch of ground where a wheat field met a line of trees. The forest was some 300 meters from the neighborhood they’d just been warned to leave in Drohobycz, Poland. An “aktion” was taking place in town, and if the Germans found them, they’d deport them to a concentration camp and kill their hosts.

What is “Jewish” about JVMI?

January 11, 2018

Jewish Voice Ministries brings the Good News – the Gospel – of Yeshua (which is the Hebrew name of Jesus) to people whom are Jewish according to the flesh. That is, those who are descendants of Abraham through Isaac, whether through the blood line of the mother or father. We help them understand that those who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua will never disown or separate themselves from their Jewish identity or heritage. On the contrary, they remain sons and daughters of Israel....

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 8th Night

December 19, 2017

The contrast between God’s holiness and the state of the desecrated Temple greatly disturbed the Israelites. They earnestly desired to set things right and present to their Holy God a renewed and pure dwelling place for Him. Through the miracle of the oil, God Himself made it possible for His people to rededicate the Temple to Him. Scripture tells us that we, as believers in Yeshua, are temples of God (1 Corinthians 6:19). His Spirit dwells within us. Chanukah entreats us to examine our h...

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 7th Night

December 18, 2017

Everything in the Temple attested to God’s holiness and purity. That’s why the desecration of His dwelling place was so grievous. Even the oil burning in the menorah had to be pure and consecrated. The presence of idols in His holy Temple along with false worship and impure sacrifices was so offensive to the Israelites that they were eager to make things right. When there wasn’t enough oil to last more than one day, God affirmed the desire of His people to honor Him, and He provided the way. ...

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 6th Night

December 17, 2017

God used the Maccabees to take back His Temple for Himself and His people. The Temple was where God dwelled, and where the Israelites drew near to His presence. When there was not enough oil to keep the menorah lit, He provided it through a miracle. When one day’s oil burned for eight days, He enabled Israel to once again come into His presence. God made the way. Through His promised Messiah, Yeshua – the Light of the World – God provided the way for each of us to draw near to Him in fell...

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 5th Night

December 16, 2017

When the Jewish people won their freedom from the oppression of Antiochus Epiphanes, they were eager to set things right and purify God’s dwelling place. But they didn’t have enough oil to sustain the Temple lampstand for the eight days required to make and consecrate more. God stepped in with His divine power. He took what they had and enlarged it. He received their “not enough” – offered in faith and reverence – and He made it enough. God does the same with us. Though we could never be e...

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 4th Night

December 15, 2017

The Temple menorah was to burn continuously. With God’s provision, it did. When there was only enough oil for one day, it kept burning for eight while the Israelites prepared more. Yeshua is the Light of the World, and He said that we are, too. When He sent His Holy Spirit to live within Believers, we became temples of God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Yeshua’s light lives in and shines through us to draw others to Him. On this fourth night of Chanukah, we consider what it means to reflect the ...

Messianic Jewish Chanukah Devotional – 3rd Night

December 14, 2017

The Maccabees faced overwhelming odds. But they could no longer endure the weight of a defiled Temple, forced idol worship and violent persecution from the empire ruling them. They’d had enough. It was time for their freedom. And God gave them victory over their oppressors. Galatians tells us that when the time was right, “God sent out His Son, born of a woman and born under law, to free those under law so we might receive adoption as sons. So you are no longer a slave but a son – and if ...

Pray with us this Chanukah

December 13, 2017

It’s Chanukah, the Feast of Dedication that commemorates the rededication of the Temple after it was desecrated in a time of great darkness. Also called the Festival of Lights, Chanukah marks the miracle when a day’s worth of oil for the Temple menorah burned for eight days, enough time to prepare a new supply. What a wonderful time this is to reflect on Yeshua (Jesus), the Light of the World, and our heavenly Father, who is the Father of light. It also prompts us to consider what it means fo...
