I wanted to share some of my thoughts with you, as I know you love the Jewish people and support our ministries that bring the message of Messiah Jesus to Israelis and Jewish people throughout the world! It is important to remember that we serve an unchanging God who is a promise maker and a promise keeper.
Our vision for the future is built upon His faithfulness and on the success of the past! Our ministry rests upon four foundational pillars that have not changed since the day Rabbi Leopold Cohn began Chosen People Ministries in 1894:
THE FOUR PILLARS OF OUR MINISTRY
#1 YESHUA IS UNCHANGING
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
#2 THE GOSPEL IS THE SAME
“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received,
that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
#3 THE WORD OF GOD IS PERFECT AND POWERFUL
“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
#4 GOD HAS PRESERVED A REMNANT TODAY AND WILL SAVE THE NATION “TOMORROW”
“In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time
a remnant according to God’s gracious choice.”
So what does God want us to do in light of the glorious tomorrow He has prepared for the Jewish people? I have been charged by the board of Chosen People Ministries to help our staff fulfill our mission statement:
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve the Jewish people and to help others do the same.
We accomplish this by:
- Planting congregations
- Establishing Messianic centers
- Backpacking ministry
- And our web-based Isaiah 53 campaigns
Our outreach to Israelis through our web-based Isaiah 53 campaign is bearing great fruit. Hundreds of Israelis are asking for the Isaiah 53 Explained book in Hebrew, and we are spending $200 per day for the ads on Facebook.
We have ministries in seventeen countries, soon to be eighteen (we will soon add a ministry to traveling Israelis in Brazil!), as by God’s grace we extend the international influence of Chosen People Ministries.
We could not do this without you – our fellow travelers along the way, prayer partners, supporters, and dear friends in the gospel.
Your brother in the Messiah,
