The Word: Our Watered Oasis

 
 

Through the Knock and Talk ministry, God rejoices our hearts week after week with encounters, touching stories, and sometimes with the privilege to pray with His people. We also witness some of their personal suffering. Some of these Jewish people we have met were eagerly hoping in the soon coming of Messiah. They understand and believe, each to varying degrees, that with his coming, pain would end.

When the Lord first opened my eyes to His Word, I became deeply passionate about the Scriptures and great healing started to take place in my life. Though I first attended a mainstream church, the Jewish perspective of the Scriptures kept drawing my attention. I had so many questions and the Lord systematically answered me through the messianic perspective of the Scriptures, reaching me through different media and platforms. It disturbed me greatly though, to hear so much rhetoric out there that treated the Jewish people in such condescending and anti-Semitic fashion… even from the Church. These days I have such a burden for the Church of God, and I pray for sound shepherds and sound doctrine to echo throughout the pews everywhere. May we all be found on the right side of the Word’s intent, and receive His blessings as a result: I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed. Genesis 12:3

 

It took a while before God brought me to the messianic congregation I now attend. Through Scriptures such as Romans 9-11, I began to see how God cherishes His people like the apple of His eye and how the believers of the nations are blessed by God through these deep teachings. A Jewish perspective of the Word waters the reader like an oasis and feeds them by the green pastures as it refreshes the heart and mind of those who seek the depths of Scripture. The Word works on our new nature which brings us to grow in holiness. It produces great joy as we discover the depth of His love.

 

When I consider a Jewish person coming to faith in their Messiah, it is as if I hear a banquet in the skies with a thousand in attendance.

 

I thank God for His people; they are very close to Him because His is so close them. May they understand this great provision of blood atonement supplied through Him who is the Way , the Truth and the Life. May the necessity of that blood atonement be remembered now! May they fully comprehend why there has not been a Temple for so long.  Let them arise from their sleep to the great realization that salvation for the world has come from the Jews. When this will happen as a nation, the whole earth will rejoice in gladness, showered by the waters of His Life.

 

We thank the Lord our God that He has sent His Word into so many Jewish homes. We pray that in this Covid isolation period when synagogues are closed, His Spirit would meet them, convict them, and guide them.

 

May God bless and protect each person He has reached through this ministry. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God.” May they come to know Yeshua and spread this Good News around them.
