Shabbat shalom, friends.
I’m very excited to invite you to a teaching on Saturday night. I know it’s short notice, but if you’re in the El Paso area and are free Saturday night, consider it.
I’m excited, not because I’m teaching, but because of the topic: Why Israel Matters. This is an issue very close to my heart. Because of ignorance and bad teaching, the Body of Christ has too long — at best — ignored our Jewish brothers and — at worst — hated and persecuted them.
“Jesus the Christ” is just a transliterated Greek form of Yeshua the Messiah. Our Lord is a Jew. Yes, IS a Jew — born into the tribe of Judah, observant all his life. His promises of the Kingdom of Heaven were to Israel first. We outsiders get to partake because — at the foundation — it was God’s plan all along. And now, the believer in Jesus is commanded to love the Jew (Romans 11).
Come listen how Paul — the apostle sent to the non-Jews — never let go of his place as a Jew — a Pharisee even — nor his passionate love for his brethren, even those who rejected Jesus as the Messiah promised by all the prophets.
WHAT: Why Israel Matters by Rabbi Saul
WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 19, 7 p.m.
WHERE: Justice House of Prayer
1317 E. Missouri Ave. (79902)
I’ve been wanting to introduce y’all to JHOP, the house of prayer here in El Paso. I will do a post on JHOP soon, but if you’re free, come out Saturday and meet some passionate intercessors who stand before God on behalf of El Paso, Juarez and more.
