Not all Jews are against Christians or the Christian faith. But there are a few liberals who are. Please pray for this situation in Israel that our religious freedom would not be hindered. Israel needs to hear the gospel like all others who are now blinded by the devil. Please read this article by Joel Rosenberg.
EXCLUSIVE: Two Knesset members propose legislation to outlaw sharing the Gospel in Israel and send violators to prison – could it become law?
Former Trump-Pence official warns bill poses massive threat to free speech, human rights and religious freedom

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – Is it possible that the Israeli government this year could pass legislation making it illegal for people to share the Gospel message in the very land where Jesus was born, raised, preached, died, buried and rose from the dead?
As Palm Sunday and Easter approach – the two most sacred days on the calendar for those who follow Jesus as both God and Messiah – two members of the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) introduced a bill last week that would ban any and all efforts to tell people about Jesus.
The bill would send violators to prison.
Reblogged this on Prayer A to Z.
So much for them being children of God.
Israel today is as bad as Babylon.
But there are a few who believe in Jesus. And at the end many will believe.
Very few. Why do we need an additional “Testament”? Jesus himself was Jewish. If you want to believe, fine. Do not try to convert people who have a very good religion already. Thank you.
I take it that you are Jewish and that you think that all you need is the Old Testament and not the New Testament. Well, In many places in the Old Testament it points to Jesus and the salvation that He brings. In Isaiah 53:6 it says “All we like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him (meaning Jesus Christ). Again in the Old T. in Ecc. 7:20 it says, “There is not a just man upon the earthy that doeth good and sinneth not.” We all (Jews and Gentiles) have sinned and need a savior. Jesus died to take away our sin. He took all sin upon Himself. He paid the penalty for our sin. But we have to believe in Him and accept His gift of salvation. Romans 6:23 say, “The wages of sin is death (eternal separation from God), but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Yes the Jewish religion is very good, but it is not complete without your Messiah who came to give everyone salvation–forgiveness of sins and eternal life. If you are relying on your good works that is not good enough. Salvation is by faith, not by works. Isaiah said that all our righteousness are as filth rags. So we can’t do anything good without believing in His Son who will take away our sins.
Allow me to disagree that any Tanach reference speicfially is related to a man named Jesus.
Oh, the entire chapter of Isaiah 53 speaks of Jesus. He is the one who grew up before Him (God) like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground (v. 2); and in verse 3, it is Jesus who was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief… Yes, the entire chapter speaks of Jesus.
I will not debate theology.

I can understand that. But I hope you will think about it — about Isaiah 53.
Not many at all. We have a perfectly good religion. No need to pursue conversion policies. Even Jesus was Jewish. Be kind to your neighbor.
Yes Jesus was Jewish. The best way to be kind to my neighbors is to be truthful to them–to give them the loving message that Jesus brings. He said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me. (John 14:6).
Thanks for your like of my post, “The Pretribulation Rapture (Part 1);” you are very kind.
