The Lord Is Gathering His People

September 22, 2015

Today, on Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement), Joel C. Rosenberg has shared a remarkable phenomenon whereas many Jews are now seeking the Messiah.

A big, untold story: Since last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have begun searching for the Messiah, and for atonement for their sins. The media isn’t reporting this. But it’s worth examining.

The final blood moon of the 2014/2015 tetrad of blood moons is going to occur on September 28, 2015. There is much speculation regarding what significance these events (occurring on Jewish holy and feast days) may have, and many prophecy experts are saying that it MIGHT be a signal in order to prepare us for the great day of the Lord.

Joel C. Rosenberg is one such Bible scholar and prophecy expert. You can read about him on his ABOUT page at his blog.

On that page you will notice several books that he has written (including Jerusalem Countdown) which are labeled as fictional accounts of what COULD happen in the future; based on prophecies in the Bible. It has been interesting to see that in several incidences, his fictional accounts have become reality years later.

For instance, here is a 2013 video interview with Martha McCallum of the Fox News Channel where Rosenberg discusses possible signs of prophecies of the Apocalypse.

Interestingly enough, there has been an even more recent exodus of refugees from the war-torn regions, seeking asylum in several European countries, as well as requests to come to the United States.

One great thing about Rosenberg is that he isn’t a “date setter” nor does he try to be a modern-day “prophet.” He just shares the prophecies in the Bible and what is currently happening around the world. At that video link, he specifically states that there are Bible prophecies that have already been fulfilled (e.g. the State of Israel in 1945) and also the fact that some prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled.  It is amazing how current events are leading up towards their fulfillment!

One example of such leading up via current events is his book entitled “Damascus Showdown,” which is a prophetic novel that depicts the changes in Syria as well as the Iran showdown. It was written back in 2013, and since then, we have seen the rise of ISIS vs. Assad in Syria. We have the controversial “Iran deal” (terribly misguided and awful – IMHO) which could possibly end up in a showdown between the USA and her Allies (especially Israel) and the fanatical mullah leaders who, most likely, would not hesitate exploding a nuclear bomb to hasten in their Islamic Caliphate.

There is a brief article about the novel from March 2013 at CBN.com.

Way back in 2010, Mr. Rosenberg wrote about the connections between blood moons and the Day of the Lord.

I have written about the Four Blood Moons here at Talk Wisdom, and here is a link to those posts.

One of the more fascinating articles is the one entitled, Breaking Israel News – Latest News, Biblical Perspective [Note: I can’t take any credit for the information, but the links shared there are well worth your time to read.]

I have viewed the Four Blood Moons docu-drama several times. Each time, I have gleaned even more information and connections shared by the various scholars in the movie.

One huge observation presented in the movie is that these blood moon tetrads have been signs from God and how He has intervened in history.   Often, the blood moons tetrads are signals given after the Jewish nation,  or Her people,  have suffered a setback or terrible tribulation (i.e. the Exodus from slavery in Egypt, the expelling of Jews from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition, the horrors of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany, the Six-Day War shortly after Israel became a nation again) and resulted in the Jewish people and the little (in size, not stature!) nation of Israel experiencing astounding victories in the face of very pressing odds where defeat might have been been considered the final outcome!

Today, on Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement), Joel C. Rosenberg has shared a remarkable phenomenon whereas many Jews are now seeking the Messiah.

A big, untold story: Since last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have begun searching for the Messiah, and for atonement for their sins. The media isn’t reporting this. But it’s worth examining.

Excerpt:

Since last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have begun a quest to find the Messiah. For reasons I cannot fully explain, Jews are suddenly searching for answers to the deepest and most important questions concerning life and death and God and atonement and eternity, in numbers unprecedented in history. Some are searching through the Hebrew Scriptures for answers. A stunning number are actually reading the New Testament, most for the first time. They are searching on Google for information about the Messiah. They are even watching a new series of videos by Jews who claim to have found the answers. The videos — some of which have gone viral — were produced and posted on a new website called www.imetmessiah.com.

To me, these are fascinating developments. They certainly aren’t being reported by the media. But they are worth examining.

Well worth your time to read the entire post!!!

In a previous post written back in February, 2014, I shared portions of Fritz Ridenour’s book (published in 1967), “So What’s The Difference.” Go to that link, scroll down and read the paragraphs that I shared from the chapter describing the differences between Christians and Jews.

Weeks ago, I ordered several copies of Ridenour’s updated book, and in this new version (published in 2001), he shares how (starting in 1967) “Messianic Jews break the mold” regarding these differences.

Excerpt:

For more than 1,200 years it has been assumed on the part of Jewish and Christian communities that a Jewish person simply couldn’t believe in Jesus and stay Jewish.

[In] spite of these cultural barriers, throughout Church history there have always been some Jewish people who came to believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. But something really unanticipated and new began in 1967. At the end of the Six Day War, Jerusalem suddenly came back into Jewish hands after nearly 2,000 years under Gentile domination. Tens of thousands of Jewish people suddenly accepted Yeshua as their Messiah. Citing biblical prophecy (see Deut. 30:1-3; Hos. 3:4,5; Joel 2:28,29; Luke 21:24), some Messianic leaders suggest that the movement of Jewish people embracing Jesus as Messiah and forming Messianic synagogues may be an important fulfillment and indicator of end-time restoration of Israel as a nation. 4

[4 Note: David Chernoff, Messianic Judaism: Questions and Answers (Havertown, PA: MMI Publishing Co., 1990), p.8.]

Notice that the excerpt shares that this “sudden acceptance of Yeshua (Jesus) happened during the period and a tetrad of blood moons and after the 1967 Six Day War!

Joel Rosenberg’s post shares how since the last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have been searching for the Messiah!. This is during the period of the current tetrad of blood moons! Coincidence? I don’t think so!

Mr. Ridenour continues:

Today it is estimated that there are over 350 Messianic Jewish congregations worldwide, with dozens in Israel. More Jewish people have put their trust in Jesus as their Messiah in the last 20 years than in the past 20 centuries.5

These Messianic congregations worship Yeshua and graciously welcome Gentiles, yet retain Jewish forms of worship, feasts, festivals, songs, customs and even humor. They are fond of reminding both Gentiles and Jews of the first-century Jewish origins of Christianity and that, after all, according to the New Testament, believing in Jesus is a very Jewish thing to do.

[5 note: Gary Thomas, “The Lord Is Gathering His People,” Charisma Magazine (April 1997, p. 54.]

[Note from Christine: As I was growing up, it was considered “impolite,” or “politically incorrect,” if not downright “offensive” to even attempt to witness to Jews who follow Judaism! Also, the divide between Judaism and Christianity back then was so great that even “associating” with one another could be a grave issue. Being raised in the Catholic Church by my mother (I am now a born-again, Bible-based Christian), she nearly “flipped out” (to use a term from the 70’s) when she found out that a young, handsome, teenage Jewish boy walked me home from a dance!! Ironically, the dance was held at a Catholic high school!!!]

Mr. Ridenour continues:

Gentile Christians should rejoice in the messianic Jewish movement as a possible indicator of the return of Jesus to the earth and (no less important) as an opportunity to put into practice what the apostles had in mind in Acts 15 and what the apostle Paul had in mind in Ephesians 2. Both of these passages speak of a Church in which the barriers of religious and cultural hostility between Gentile and Jew are boken down through the blood of the Messiah, a witness to all the earth that Yeshua is Lord. As the Messiah of prophecy, He stands ready to receive all who believe in Him. “For there is not difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him” (Rom. 10:12).

Breaking Israel News: Latest News Biblical Perspective

May 27, 2015

The Lord Your Healer

Itamar Hassan’s magnificent photo of the Land of Israel in full bloom.

*******

During a recent search online, I discovered a website called Breaking Israel News. It is a site that covers the latest news from a biblical perspective.  Unfortunately, today’s headline on the front page shares the latest attack from Gaza upon the Jewish State of Israel and how the IAF Strikes Gaza Following Rocket Fire on Israel.

However, the first page that I read there had to do with an interesting article written back in March about “Four Blood Moons Movie”: The Winners and Losers.

Links within the post brought even more fascinating information!

There are many to read, but here are the ones I have read so far:

1. New Blood Moon Revelation Claims to Reveal Date of Biblical Exodus

Excerpt:

O’Dell offered Monday night for the first time a new, comprehensive theory that he says fits all of the available astronomical data and is consistent with Biblical scripture.

O’Dell claims that the Blood Moons are not a sign of Divine Judgment, but a witness in the sky that God has not forgotten His covenant to restore His people to their land.

As such, the Blood Moons should be seen as “God’s gift to the Jewish people” and a sign of celebration and not a cause for fear, as each of the waves of Blood Moons occurring on Passover and Sukkot throughout history signaled a mini-Exodus.

By using this new model, O’Dell, with the help of several Jewish friends including his Root Source co-partner Gidon Ariel, also began to see patterns throughout history going all the way back to the original exodus from Egypt.

Previously overlooked patterns in Jewish history linked to Blood Moon tetrads.

2. Exclusive: Friday’s Solar Eclipse Linked to Fateful 1492 Blood Moon.

Here is another exciting discovery that could not have been realized until the age of computers came along!  This portion was truly eye-opening:

“My mouth nearly dropped to the floor when I discovered the path of the 1492 solar eclipse.”

NASA has tracked the path of the solar eclipse of April 26, 1492, which began in the Pacific Ocean south of the equator and traveled northeast crossing the thin land bridge where, years later, the Panama Canal would be built. On the Jewish calendar, April 26, 1492 corresponds to the fifth day of Passover (20 Nissan), which the Bible states is two days before the Exodus from Egypt and the splitting of the sea.

Screenshot from NASA website on the path of the solar eclipse of April 26, 1492.

After then clipping the very top of South America, the path of the 1492 solar eclipse headed southeast in the Atlantic Ocean very close to the shortest crossing point between South America and Africa.

“It is almost like it was a signpost being placed on earth for later generations to see, once the age of computers would arrive,” O’Dell explained to Breaking Israel News.

“God could have been saying to the world, that yes, you can expel the Jews from Spain, but I am going to open up the Americas so they would have a place of refuge until their ultimate homeland was ready to receive them.”

 

3. CUFI Denounces Journalist for Article Attacking Pastor John Hagee

As with anything else that a Christian Pastor presents as evidence of the God of the Bible, Pastor Hagee was attacked by a Huffington Post writer who apparently wrote an untruthful screed against Hagee; accusing him of anti-Semitism!

Go to that link and read the truth about Hagee and his decades long friendship with Israel!

Excerpt:

Hagee has long enjoyed a close relationship with the Jewish community and was honored in 2013 by leading Jewish organizations for his “years of support and humanitarian endeavors on behalf of Israel,” including more than $80 million in donations by John Hagee Ministries to Israeli charities, which is a separate entity from CUFI [Christians United For Israel].

 

Just goes to prove…you can’t believe everything written on the HuffPoo site!

 

4. Root Source is a website started by a Jewish founder and CEO named Gidon Ariel. The Christian co-founder is Bob O’Dell.

What is Root Source?

Today, more and more Christians and Jews are hearing the divine call to wake up and engage with one another.

Root Source is answering that call: Knowledgeable, Orthodox Israeli Jews teaching Christians around the world online about Jewish concepts, ideas and thought, to more deeply understand the roots of their faith, in an informal and loving manner.

Root Source enables and encourages dialogue and relationships between Christians and Jews, and empowers Christians to learn like Jews have been learning for centuries. Our Israeli Jewish teachers know you are a Christian, and respect your identity and your faith. Root Source gives you access to world-class Jewish biblical teaching online, helping you learn deeper and reach higher in your Christian faith, with the opportunity to ask any question openly.

Our members are often surprised at how quickly they can learn deeper biblical truths from Orthodox Jewish teachings and directly and practically apply those teachings to their own Christian faith.

I can attest to the fact that when Christians learn about the Jewish Feasts Days and their significance (as well as how they point to the Messiah – Jesus Christ!); our faith can be exponentially increased!

For example, read my post from Good Friday of this year (which fell on the first day of Passover!) How the Passover/Seder Reveals Jesus Christ!
