Missionary Report

The Joshua Fund

Joel C. Rosenberg

 

It was November 2002.  I had just released my first novel, “The Last Jihad”.  I was doing a telephone interview on a hard rock radio station  -  and the radio host asked me this question “Dude, how can you be Jewish and believe in Jesus?”  Here’s my answer.  It was January 1984 and it was one of those days in the dark of winter in upstate New York.  I was in my room after school and I was having a blowout session with God.  I was mad.  You promise love, joy, hope, peace and happiness.  So either it’s not true, or I totally don’t get it. 

You have to show me if you are real because otherwise I’m out.

  

But I heard God speak to me directly and it shocked me. 

Joel, do you ever really read my Word?   Meaning, do I ever really read the Bible?  And I thought, No I don’t read it on a daily basis.  I don’t study it for myself, no I don’t. 

 Joel, do you really talk to me, do you really listen to me, and do you share your heart with me and talk to me in prayer?  And the answer was No  -  I don’t really spend time in prayer.  And He said, Joel, why would you ever expect to experience my blessings when you don’t even know me?  God had just spoken to me and I was electrified.  That moment, that night  -  changed everything for me.  So, how can I be Jewish and believe in Jesus?  The answer is very simple, actually. Jesus was Jewish.  His disciples were Jewish.  He lived in Israel and He fulfilled all the prophesies that the Jewish prophets had said...that He would die as a suffering

servant and that He would rise again. 

It’s amazing that when Jewish people study the life of Jesus what He said, what He did...we come to the conclusion that Jesus is who He claimed to be.  He is the Messiah that we have waited for.  The most Jewish thing in the world that someone can do is follow

the Jewish Messiah. 

I was raised by a Jewish father and a Gentile mother and came to believe that Jesus is, in fact, the Jewish Messiah.

 

 

Please remember to continue to pray for all of those who are being persecuted and killed for believing in Jesus Christ each and every day.
