Stealing Jewish Souls.

She wants to comfort the people of Israel: ” Comfort ye, comfort ye my people.” She wants to bring comfort through the love of Yeshua to people; like Holocaust survivors in Israel.

I just read Rabbi Sack’s discussion on parsha Ki Teitse. He explains the difference between rational (not necessarily justified hate ) and irrational hate through the story of the Amalekites. Today the Jewish people face many who do not want us to survive as Jews. They include Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews and their growing organizations, like ICEJ.

Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt. When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and attacked all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God. When the Lord your God gives you rest from all the enemies around you in the land He is giving you to possess as an inheritance, you shall blot out the name of Amalek from under the heaven. Do not forget. (Deut. 25:17-19)

Rabbi Sacks explained: The Amalekites did no more than attack the Israelites once, an attack that they successfully repelled (Ex. 17:13). Yet Moses commands, “Remember.” “Do not forget.” “Blot out the name.” In Exodus the Torah says that “God shall be at war with Amalek for all generations” (Ex. 17:16). Why the difference? Why did Moses tell the Israelites, in effect, to forgive the Egyptians but not the Amalekites? He provides an answer from Mishna, Avot (5:19):

When hate is rational, based on some fear or disapproval that – justified or not – has some logic to it, then it can be reasoned with and brought to an end. But unconditional, irrational hatred cannot be reasoned with. There is nothing one can do to address it and end it. It persists.

The Amalekites attacked the Israelites when they were “weary and weak”. They focused their assault on those who were “lagging behind.” Those who are weak and lagging behind pose no danger. This was irrational, groundless hate.

“My sister and I were raised in Canada in a Jewish, Yiddish-speaking environment where all our friends were Jewish, and Israel was our raison d’être. Christianity was the religion of the outsiders, the faith of anti-Semites and Jew-haters, the creed of the Crusaders, Inquisitors, Persecutors, and Nazis. Yet my mother would remind me continually that ‘Jesus was a Jew.’”

My regular synagogue attendance led me to helping out in Hebrew school, participating in youth groups, and singing in the choir led by a wonderful cantor. In the choir were two Messianic Jews — that is, Jews who believe that Jesus is the Messiah whom God promised to send the Jewish people. They were praying to be able to lead someone to faith in Him…

They began to expound on the ancient prophecies in the Hebrew Scripture concerning the Messiah, but I didn’t hear a word they said. What I did hear was what the Lord spoke to my heart when He revealed Himself to me personally, saying, “Jesus is the Messiah; He is Lord.”

His father is a Holocaust survivor. Here is Neugebauer’s story:

“Jesus Is Messiah: From Conservative Jew to Messianic Jew to Jewish Catholic”

Jackie Clarke is ICEJ Canada Prayer Director & Co-Leader. She was brought on board by Donna Holbrook, Canada National Director ICEJ.

Jackie is an avid Bible scholar who has had a fascination with Israel since childhood. Her love for Israel has taken her there twice. The first visit was in 1995, and then again in 1999. She looks forward to making many more trips in the future. Jackie has been serving as the ICEJ Canada Prayer Director for just over a year. She holds degrees in Theology and Psychology. Her desire is to see the Hebraic roots of Christianity taught in the churches across Canada, beginning with her own congregation, Catch the Fire (TACF) Midtown.

She wants to comfort the people of Israel: “ Comfort ye, comfort ye my people.”

She wants to bring comfort through the love of Yeshua to people; like Holocaust survivors in Israel.

This is comfort for Holocaust survivors.

Jews promoting Jesus are Amalekites. They nip at the heels of the weak and the uneducated.They share “love” for the sole purpose of promoting the love of Yeshua. Bait and switch. They want more Mark Neugebauers.

Among other sacrifices  some evangelicals such as the ICEJ people in order to build their ties with Israel, have toned down their historic commitment to evangelize.” And yet, Jewish organizations accept money from these people. Could it be that ICEJ is always there with a handout?

Jewish organizations must be very good at wilful blindness.

From the Ethics of the Fathers: “Rabbi Tarfon used to say, it is not incumbent upon you to complete the task, but you are not exempt from undertaking it.”

  1. We are fast approaching the 70th week of the Daniel prophesy. Yeshuah (Jesus) really is the messiah. Read psalm 22, Isiah, the suffering servant, What about all the miracles Jesus did? dont they count? He was crucified on the Passover, arose on the Sunday and ascended one week before Pentecost and the Holy spirit (ruach) came upon the Apostles of Yeshuah as prophesied on the day of Pentecost. How can you say we are steeling your religion? We are not perverting Judaism. We believe in YOUR GOD the God of Abraham Issac and Jacob. Read Isiah 61:1 Here you have the Father Son and Holy Spirit in the opening line. God is one but in 3 parts. Always working together in perfect unison. Jesus said I, I AM the Way the Truth and the Life, no man comes unto the Father except through me. Jesus fulfilled prophesy he gave to Eve in the garden of Eden.

      By all means believe in Jesus. But don’t share it with teh Jewish people. We chose not to accept Jesus as the messiah. For one reason, peace did not fill the world. That Christians see three in one is wonderful for Christians but Jews see One God.I dont recall saying that Christians perverted Judaism. I said; enough already with the proselytizing and the underhanded manner in which it is done. Leave us to our beliefs as we leave you to yours. I said you are stealing Jewish souls-reaching out to the weakest of our people and trying to get them to accept Jesus-that is an outrage.

    • You can believe any falsehoods you want, but spelling them out here & insisting that you are right is only going to get you mocked & refuted. There are NO prophesies about Jesus in Torah. Isaiah is about Israel *itself*. The “miracles he performed” are your stories – you;re not going to force them on us. There is no proof of his existence & the rest of the story you are telling has NOTHING to do with who Moshiach will be. THIS is how we can say you are perverting our religion: lying to us about what it encompasses & what it requires. NOTHING in Isaiah is about Jesus – YOU need to red it in the original, or have an actual rabbi read it for you & stoip believing the false interpretations of it. At the very least, you need to stop bothering us with your bigotry.

    ‘Learned’ Rabbis ought to know the Amalekites tried to curse the ISRAELITES, not just the Jewish people. And from that basic error flows a torrent of misrepresentations which makes me wonder WHO’S “stealing” the Jewish soul.
