Welcome back to day 5 of our prayer journey! God is moving in mighty ways in the land of Israel, and is fulfilling Ezekiel’s prophecy of breathing life, both physically and spiritually, into the people of Israel. We’re following a prayer guide produced by One for Israel, a Messianic Jewish-led evangelical ministry based in Israel. God is using them in a powerfully prophetic way, and we’re invited to join the prayer effort that drives the ministry forward. So, consider this…
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”~Matthew 16:15-16
About a quarter of Israel’s Jewish population practices Orthodox Judaism. However, the study halls are not focused on the Torah (the first five books of Moses), but rather the rabbinic commentary of the Talmud, or the “Oral Law.” While being full of interesting commentary and tradition, Jewish writings often contradict Scripture and elevate the authority of the rabbis above all, even mixing in Eastern mysticism and pagan ideas such as reincarnation. But thankfully, the Holy Spirit is opening eyes in the Orthodox communities like never before. One for Israel’s evangelism and apologetics videos are reaching into these untouchable communities and many are discovering the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua!
Today, pray that more Orthodox Israelis would chose to recognize their Messiah, the Son of the living God.
Pray for this Israeli seeker:
