Jewish Man Converts To Jesus

Jewish man converts to Jesus

There are many Jewish people today coming to faith in Christ. Contrary to Rabbinical teachings, they are believing that Jesus (Yeshua) was indeed the promised Messiah and the Savior of all mankind. Like Glenn Blank says in his conversion testimony, “You don’t have to give up your Jewish identity to believe in Jesus.” He came to faith in Jesus Christ the Messiah while personally studying the New and Old Testament Bible, and the Messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus.

Time is Running Short for America

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I originally published this message in May of 2012. Since then, America has not repented; instead they have continued morally downhill and further rebelled against God. Therefore, more disaster is imminent – perhaps sooner than the year 2015, as Rabbi Cahn predicts in his book, The Harbinger. God’s people need to prepare for the worst economic meltdown ever seen in the history of the United States, as well as other calamities. Only those who seek refuge in God will have any hope. Read Psalms 91 and heed its admonitions. – Pastor Luis Yosefus

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” – Isaiah 9:16

For quite a number of years now, God’s true prophets in the Christian church have been calling America to repent and turn back to God. Sadly, many of these genuine prophetic voices have been drowned out by spiritually adulterous pastors and preachers who falsely reassure God’s people that God is not mad at them. They are like the compromising spiritual leaders of Israel who promised God’s people “peace and blessing” when disaster was looming over the horizon. When the people began to fear God’s judgments, the false prophets and lying priests comforted them by flatterings, showing that God would send peace to them, and not war.

“They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the LORD.” – Jeremiah 6:14-15

One such prophet who is sounding the alarm today is Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He has written an important book called The Harbinger which clearly illustrates the warning signs that God has been sending upon the United States of America. He likens these progressive warning judgments as Shemittahs (pronounced She-mee-tah in Hebrew) of seven-year cycles.

* The first Shemittah was the Terrorist Attack of 9/11/2001 on New York City’s Twin Towers.

* The second Shemittah was the Economic Collapse of 2008

* The third Shemittah will happen in the year 2015.

As these seven-year Shemittahs continue, God’s judgments will get progressively worse upon America. Unless America humbles herself, seeks God’s face, and turns from her wicked ways, God will not heal this nation from all her troubles (2 Chronicles 7:14). We have forsaken the LORD who once greatly blessed this nation. Therefore, because of America’s disobedience God is now sending curses upon America instead of blessing.

God says, “Do not listen to your arrogant leaders who cause you to err.”

After the first and second Shemittah judgments in 2001 and 2008, the arrogant American politicians declared:

“We will rebuild and emerge stronger than ever before!”

Israel’s leaders gave the people the same false assurance: “They said, “We will replace the broken bricks of our ruins with finished stone, and replant the felled sycamore-fig trees with cedars.” (Isaiah 9:10)

But God has a different message for the American people. It is the same message He spoke to the rebellious nation of Israel:

“For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. Therefore, in a single day the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed. The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.” – Isaiah 9:13-15

Unless America repents, God will send further calamities upon this nation which will reach all sorts of persons – both the prominent politicians and apostate church leaders to the lowliest persons that trusted in their lies. He will beat down their vain presumptions of peace and prosperity, by showing that these false prophets, which had fed their vain hopes, should perish, and their false prophecies with them.

Is there any hope for America?

Yes, of course. But only if the American people meet God’s conditions. America must respond to God’s progressive punishments by asking for His forgiveness and turn back to Him with all their hearts. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but ultimately desires that all will come to repentance.

“Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?– Ezekiel 18:23

God is a God of justice and righteousness and so He calls evil and sin what they are. He holds people accountable accordingly. But God is also a God of mercy and love, and desires that all people — even the most sinful and wicked among us — repent and “turn from their wicked ways.” However, when the wicked do not repent and turn, God has no choice but to afflict them with His justice, although He takes no pleasure when they ultimately experience the consequences of their wickedness in death.

So America is at a crossroads: Will she repent of her wickedness and turn back to God, thereby averting any further judgment? Or, will she ignore God’s warning judgments and further incur His wrath until the United States of America (as we know it) ceases to exist?

Desperate Prayer is Effective Prayer.

I believe God is calling His holy remnant to fervently pray and intercede for this nation as never before.

“The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much.” – James 5:16

The key to effective praying is fervency. Are you willing to be fervent in your intercession? Perhaps through the multitude of our desperate prayers for America we can help turn the tide and save this nation from ultimate ruin.

May God bless America once again.

Columbus – A Messianic Jew?

Questions & Answers

Questions & Answers

Hello Brother Luis…I heard something today that I thought was interesting and I thought perhaps you might have heard something about it. I heard and saw evidence that Christopher Columbus was actually a Messianic Jew who hid his Jewish identity because of the inquisition. Do you know anything about that? – Donna, Missouri.

– – – – – – – – – –

Yes I do. In fact, I believe it is true. If it is, I am of Jewish ancestry since my ancestors migrated to Cuba from Spain. My last name is also of Jewish origin. During the voyages of Christopher Columbus, thousands of Spanish Jews escaped on Columbus’ ships. The Roman Catholic Inquisition in Spain was in full force – imprisoning, torturing, and killing Jews who refused to convert to Catholicism. I wrote a teaching message about this. You can click on the link below to read it.

Was Christopher Columbus Jewish?
https://yehudafm.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/was-christopher-columbus-jewish

Here is an excerpt: “I recently came across the following article on the Spanish website http://www.Semana.com. This reliable editorial details the latest revelations on the true ancestry of Christopher Columbus (Cristóbal Colón) and the primary motivation behind the discovery of The Americas. It further confirms my own Jewish ancestry that dates back to the migration of Spanish Jews to the island of Cuba and Hispaniola on board the voyages of Columbus. Here are some highlights of these recent revelations…”

Keep in mind that I don’t like to use the term “Messianic Jew.” This term is a modern invention of the Messianic movement. I prefer to simply call them “Jewish believers,” since God’s Word rebukes sectarianism (i.e. denominational labels) which divide the Body of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 1:12-13)

“What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul?

I encourage you to do your own study on these subjects and ask the Holy Spirit to give you further revelation.

Blessings in Messiah,

Pastor Luis Yosefus

Christians Are Not Under the Law of Moses

Christians Are Not Under the Law of Moses – Part 2

    The Mosaic Covenent In part one of this message, we discussed that there is much confusion in the Body of Christ today regarding which parts of the Old Testament laws we should be observing. The Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ makes it clear and consistent: Once a person has trusted in Jesus Christ the Messiah, his salvation and righteous standing before God the Father no longer depends on observing the law of Moses. The animal sacrifices, circumcision, the priestly system, Kosher foods, the stoning of people to death, the eye-for-an-eye, tooth-for-a-tooth mentality, and so on, have been done away with under the New Covenant.

So why are so many Christian people – both Gentiles and Jews, reverting back to the Old Covenant system of Moses?

      I believe that many are attracted by the appeal of learning more about the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. After all, Jesus was Jewish, the early disciples were Jewish, and we need to appreciate our Jewish heritage in order to understand the context of our Christian religion. And that is as far as it should go. Unfortunately, in their enthusiasm for learning more about their Jewish roots, many Christians are lured into attending Hebraic and Messianic congregations that have overstepped their boundaries and have become modern-day Judaisers. These congregations claim they are followers of Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus the Messiah in Hebrew), but instead of preaching the Gospel of Grace that Jesus preached, they preach the obsolete laws of Moses. They forget that the Old Testament laws of Moses have been done away with, and we are now under a New Covenant – the New Covenant of Grace.

The laws of Moses were only temporary “schoolmasters”.

      They were instituted by God only for a certain period of time to teach us about sin and transgression, God’s holiness, and drive us to faith in Jesus the Messiah. But after the laws of Moses served their (temporary) purpose and Jesus came and sacrificed His life for us, they were no longer necessary. God Himself had predicted long ago, that the Old Covenant would one day be replaced by a new and better covenant when Messiah Jesus would come.

“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel [and all people who believe on Me] in the future,” says the LORD. “I will put my laws, statutes, and instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” – Jeremiah 31:33 (JCV)

     When Jesus the Messiah finally came, He did away with the old system, and instituted the new system — a better covenant, that produces personal holiness and righteousness based on faith and obedience to the indwelling presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Jesus now lives inside each of us and tells us how we should live, and what we should do, in order to please God the Father.

–         Luis Yosefus

In Part 3 of this teaching, we will examine the prevalence of religious deception today, and the spiritual dangers of reverting back to the Mosaic laws and falling from grace.
