Jesus Made Me Kosher

WHO IS YESHUA AND HOW CAN HE MAKE ANYONE KOSHER?

Most people assume that Yeshua (Jesus Hebrew name) has nothing to do with being kosher, but that’s not true.  Yeshua is the most Jewish of Jews: He was born in Israel to a Jewish mother from King David’s royal family.  He was circumcised on the eighth day. He was a rabbi who did unparalleled miracles that brought great blessing to the nation of Israel.  He taught that He fulfilled, not set aside, the Torah.

Even though He died 2000 years ago, Yeshua was raised from the dead; He returned to life and overcame death!  He is the Messiah of Israel. And the Savior of the world.  He is the coming world ruler and mankind’s only hope.  He is the only one who can make us kosher (clean, fit, proper) in God’s sight because He is completely kosher in the eyes of God.  He alone is the one who can enable both Jews and Gentiles to have a kosher relationship with god, and with one another.  Only Yeshua can give genuine peace and joy in this life, and everlasting life in the world to come.  Have you said “Yes” to “Yeshua” yet?

Washington State Fair Outreach

We had a wonderful 17 days at the Washington State Fair, September 11-27. This was our second year at this fair which draws over one million attendees! Over 3,000 gospel tracts and gospel bookmarks were handed out. We talked to religious Jews, secular Jews, atheist Jews, Israelis, and Praise God, truth seeking Jews!

I had a great encounter with Stacy. She is Jewish and seeking truth. I told her I would pray that God would reveal the truth through a dream or give her some sign that Jesus is the Messiah. She had tears in her eyes as she walked away. Here are some other names of Jewish people to pray for: Beryl, Bonny, Samuel, Miriam, Adam, Jimmy, Edwin, Valerie, Nolan, Eli and many others.WA1

We also talked with many Christians who were surprised to find out that there were some Jewish people who believed in Jesus. We reminded them that there have always been Jewish believers since Yeshua’s first disciples, who were Jews. We also gave them literature and books to help them share their faith with their Jewish friends and family. Special thanks to Nathan Grapes, Brook Kittle, Rachel and Michael Bielefeld, and other volunteers who helped us man the booth. The hours were long, especially the weekends (9am to 11pm!) and we couldn’t have done it with out help.

California State Fair Outreach

July 2015

Last month Rock of Israel set up a booth at the California State Fair. We manned it between 10 to 12 hours a day for 17 days straight. As you can imagine, we had many people stop by because of all the Jewish products we had displayed.  Just to let you know we LOSE money at these events (due01-CalState-July15 to the very high cost of booth rental space and travel and lodging) but the conversations we have with people are priceless! One was with a Jewish vendor, a young guy maybe 24 named Shmuel (Samuel).  He was very open, listened to the message and took a book offered him by our staff.  He promised to read at least one of the Jewish testimonies in there.  All in all – we had a dozens of conversations with believers and non-believers at our booth. Gave away hundreds of bookmarks and tracts – and filled up pages of believers emails for our newsletter sign-up sheets.
