Israel Turns 50

Israel turns 70!

Shalom from Caulfield, in the heart of Jewish Melbourne! We are celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday this year, and Louise and I have just returned from a month of ministry in the Land. The State of Israel was founded on May 14, 1948, and Australia was among the first countries to formally recognise the ‘new’ state, on 27 January 1949.

Justifying Australia’s position, Foreign Minister Evatt stated: Australia’s decision to give recognition to the Government of Israel was as inevitable as it was just… Australia’s one objective was to reach a fair and just solution, and I believe that objective has now been satisfactorily reached.

Pentecost May 2018

Responding to God’s Good Gifts

Shalom and blessings to you in Yeshua our Messiah. As we come to celebrate the Feast of Shavuot, also known as Pentecost in the New Testament, on Sunday 20th of May this year, I am so grateful to God for his good gifts to us through faith in Yeshua our Messiah.
At this Appointed Time we give thanks to God for two most amazing gifts in particular: the gifts of his Word and of his Spirit.

Passover Mar 2018

Did Jesus Celebrate Passover?

We are approaching the Passover/Easter season and I pray this will be a spiritually enriching time for you and your family. Hundreds of Jewish people – both believers in Jesus and seekers – will be attending Chosen People Ministries’ Passover events around the globe.

Your Mission to the Jewish People has produced two new books, which are now available. Both books cover similar material, but the longer book, Messiah in the Passover, goes into greater depth regarding Passover in the Bible, Jewish history, and even Church history. The Gospel in the Passover focuses on the way in which Jesus fulfills the festival.

To the Jews First?

Shalom and a happy start to 2018 to you! I pray you have had a great time of rejoicing with your family and friends over this holiday season as you reflect on all the great things God has done.
I am sure you would agree that salvation is our greatest joy. I ask myself sometimes, “Where would I be today without Yeshua?” All I can say is that as a Jewish young man, I was headed for an early grave and an eternity without
the Lord. But, thankfully, God gave His Son as a perfect sacrifice for our sin. Now my life and yours are filled with goodness, love, peace, and more joy than we could ever deserve.

Hebrew Text

Is Jesus the Jewish Messiah?

Most years around this time, we prepare a special newsletter for our Jewish friends who might not yet believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah.
We also send this newsletter out to both Jewish and Gentile believers who  already subscribe with the hope that you will take this issue and pass it along to a Jewish friend. If you are one of those Jewish friends who has received this newsletter, I hope from the bottom of my heart, that you will read it and be pleasantly challenged to consider whether or not Jesus is the promised Messiah of Israel.

Taberbacles Tomorrow Square

Tabernacles Tomorrow

It is hard to believe another year has passed! The Fall Feasts are upon us, and Jewish people all around the world will soon begin to celebrate the New Year (Rosh Hashanah), the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) – the three great Fall Festivals described in Leviticus 23:23-44.

We believe that each of the Festivals points to Jesus in one way or another, and this is wonderfully true of the Feast of Tabernacles! This Feast, in particular, carries a rich meaning for both Christians and Jewish people alike.

YESHUA THE MESSIAH AND THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES

Luther

Luther and the Jews

The festivities in Germany and around the globe celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation have begun! These great festivities will culminate on October 31, 2017 as this was the exact date when Martin Luther hammered the 95 Theses to the door at the Wittenberg Chapel.

Of course, there is some discussion about the historical accuracy of this event
as he may have simply sent the 95 Theses to the Archbishop of Mainze (in today’s Germany), which were in reality arguments against the system of indulgences practiced by the medieval Catholic church.

Harsh words keep Jewish people from discovering the Jewish Messiah for themselves.
