Secular Jew defends Messianic Jews in Israeli media

“Jews do not have an enemy in Christianity”

Secular Israeli lawmaker Nitzan Horowitz.

This was the conclusion of Israeli Law maker Nitzan Horovitz of the secular Meretz Party. He gave this statement on Israeli TV channel One’s “Second look”. Horovitz was commenting on the fact that Orthodox Jews persecution Messianic Jews.

Channel One’s “Second Look” program compared local Messianic Jews to the anti-missionary group Yad L’Achim, which has dedicated itself to harassing and driving out believers in Yeshua (Jesus).

“They [the Orthodox] are constantly looking for enemies,” Horovitz continued. “But we do not have an enemy in Christianity.”

Throughout the second half of the report were interspersed clips of Yad L’Achim and its Orthodox supporters holding hostile and heated rallies, while Messianic Jews were shown calmly praying for Israel at their places of worship.

The message was clear: Messianic Jews are not a threat to Israel or the spirit of the Jewish nation, but Yad L’Achim just might be.

Yad L’Achim director Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifschitz told Channel One that if the “missionaries” are not stopped, soon “there will be no Jews left here.”

My comment:

Most of the Jews who have picked up New Testaments in Hebrew from my hand, have been secular. They have rejected Orthodox Judaism as a religion that has missed the mark. Still they are truth seekers, who rejoiced the day they heard about the true Messiah.

The true Messiah is not an enemy of Israel. In the end, He and His followers will be the only friends left for the Jewish people.

The Bible explains that there will be a people who are not Jewish, who are called to comfort His people.

Who are they?

Obviously Evangelical Christian friends of Israel, who have embraced the true Jesus of Nazareth.

Isaiah 40:1
[ Comfort for God’s People ] Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.

  1. And it is from these Jewish believers that the Kingdom will be built here on Earth. Now they are being called “Christians” but then they will be called Israel, the Apple of God’s Eye.

    Religious Jews have the most uncanny ability to utter prophecy without even knowing it: “Yad L’Achim director Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifschitz told Channel One that if the ‘missionaries’ are not stopped, soon ‘there will be no Jews left here.’ ” Amen–let it be so, Lord God.

    1. Dear Job 3627.

      Shalom,and love in Jesus.

      The Messianic Jews in Israel have to defend them selves as Jews. They are. From A to Z.

      When they are called to the Home Ministry because their applications and papers have been rejected, they are given a chanse to explain Messianic Judaism. Jesus was a Jew. Born a Jew. Raised a Jew, circumzised and presented for dedication in the Temple. He taught in the Temple and in the synagogues.

      The persecutors in Jerusalem are baffled by their wisdom and knowledge. They are not speaking. It is the Holy Spirit who speach through them.

      Luke 12:11-12.

      11 “When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”

      (end of scritures).

      This verse speak about “synagogues”. I see very few Christians who are able to defend their faith, and absolutely not being able to turn the table on their persecutors, the way Messianic Jews are doing.

      We must ask our selves a question:

      Can a man be a follower of Jesus, if he is not able, as a part of his defence, to explain who his master is?

  2. That is wonderful to hear, Ivar. I have always had great admiration for the ability of Messianic Jews to define and defend their faith. They have had their faith tested in the fires of persecution. This has always been the way of the followers of Our Lord and we have come full circle.
