Outreach in Israel and the Messianic Jewish Community

“…my heart’s desire and prayer to God on behalf of my fellow Israelites is for their salvation.” (Romans 10:1, NET)

  • Outreach in Israel

    To date, sharing Yeshua the Messiah with Jewish Israelis is legal in Israel and a variety of means can and have been used in proclaiming the Good News.  Two laws restrict Messianic outreach: One pro­hibits the evangel­ism of minors without their parents' con­sent; the other prohibits the use of "material inducements" to encourage a change of faith.  While neither of these restrictions need deter a vigorous but ethical approach to evangelism, the va­garies of the "material induce­ment" clause have led to concern within the believing community: Could giving a book or inviting someone to dinner be construed as using "material inducements?"  

    Outreach in Israel has been carried out using a variety of methods, including literature distribution at concerts or on the streets; adver­tisements in local news­papers for free Bibles or other literature; and by canvasing neighborhoods or entire towns offering the Jesus film in He­brew and Russian.  Nowadays the use of electronic media and the internet is the most effective way to make contact with the 18-35 age group which is most eager to find spiritual answers to life’s greatest questions. Nevertheless, ultimately personal contact with Messianic believers and a sensitive exposure to the truths of the Scripture (for example through small group evangelistic Bible studies) are crucial in leading seekers to faith. 

    Opposition to Outreach

    While Messianic outreach is legal, local officials and police are often unaware of this fact and when prodded by hostile religious ele­ments they have treated Messianic believers as illegal "disturbers of the peace" or even as “threats to the Jewish people”!  Since Israel is still without a Bill of Rights and prejudice against believers extends even to the judiciary, we have limited possibility of legal redress for any harassment or attempted in­timi­dation by zealous but ignorant individuals or groups.

    In the last 20 years so-called “anti-missionary” activists have stepped up harassment of believers and Messianic congregations.   In Israel’s Knesset (parliament) various bills have been proposed with the intent of outlawing any “preaching with the purpose of changing another person’s religion.”  Several religious Knesset members have promised to continue to propose and support such bills until all forms of evangelism are declared illegal.  Though the Lord has blocked these attempts to silence the Good News so far, hostile elements in the Ministry of the Interior continue to use administrative authority to harass and even expel believers from the Land, including those who have received Israeli citizenship.  Please make these different threats to the Gospel a matter for serious prayer.

  • The Messianic Jewish Community in Israel

    Why "Messianic Jews"?

    The term "Messianic" (Hebrew: Meshichi/ משיחי) is the direct equivalent of "Christian" in its literal sense, "a follower of Christ (i.e. the Mes­siah)."  This term is used to avoid the very negative connotation of "Christian" within the Jewish community while at the same time emphasizing the cultural and national identifica­tion of Jewish believers with our people.

    Just as "Christian" in modern English can refer to many groups which are hardly Christian in the biblical sense (hence the common use of "born-again"), so the common He­brew term trans­lating "Chris­tian" (Notzri) denotes a non-Jew who is considered a part of the Church (any branch) either by choice, birth, or historical asso­ciation.  Naturally Jewish believers who, like Paul, see them­selves as part of the modern day remnant of Israel (Rom. 11:1-10) will not use a term which both eliminates their Jewish identity and associates them with an institution (the "Church", i.e. Christen­dom) which is mostly unbelieving and, historically, has been res­ponsible for the most heinous waves of persecution that have come against the Jewish people in the last twenty centuries.

    The Messianic Jewish Community in Israel

    The size of the Messianic Community in Israel today has been var­iously estimated as ranging from 5,000 to 15,000 or more.  These believers are organized in over 100 Messi­anic con­grega­tions spread throughout the Land and ranging in membership from 20 to 300+, though the average size would be about 50-70 adults.  Many non-Jewish believers are also members of these con­gregations, either as spouses of Jewish believers or out of a desire to be connected with the Messianic Jewish movement.

    Messianic congregations in various areas of the country have been targeted for harassment and physical attacks by anti-missionary organizations in an attempt to intimidate the believers and silence their testimony.  These groups have frequently hired spies to infiltrate Messianic congregations as supposed “new believers”, gather names, and report back on the activities of the community generally.  Large demonstrations against the Messianic congregations in different communities have been given legal backing and protection by the police and courts.  When these demonstrations have become violent, the perpetrators are typically released without charges being brought.

    In many cases local congregations do not receive consistent, in-depth biblical instruction and therefore their members tend to be spiritually weak.  The lack of biblically trained and/or spiritually qualified leadership tends to pro­duce “leader-centered” and/or “experience-based” congregations rather than “Messiah-centered, Word-based” ones.  This opens up the Body in the Land to dangerous winds of doc­trine and threatens to neutralize the ability of con­gregations to be effective lights in the darkness.  Pray for the protection of God's people and that their spiritual leaders would "preach the Word" consistently (II Tim. 4:1-4) so that God's truth can continually rekindle the Messianic community’s spiritual lanterns.

What's in a NAME?

Why the Name Change?

In 2001, a former associate decided to pursue a course of ministry which was not consistent with the principles of ministry laid out by Trumpet of Salvation’s Board of Directors.  Unfortunately, this individual chose not only to break with the organization but also to co-opt our name, incorporating his own “Trumpet of Salvation to Israel” in a number of countries (outside the US) and establishing a large “footprint” in that name on the internet.  This situation created considerable confusion, especially for those seeking to learn about and support our own ministries.

For this reason…

For this reason Trumpet of Salvation’s Board of Directors has added “Horn of Salvation” (Hebrew: “Keren Yeshuah”) as an additional official organizational name.  We respond to either…or both!

Keren Yeshuah (קרן ישועה), literally “Horn of Salvation,” is a biblical metaphor for the Messianic Redeemer-King whom God would raise up to save His people, Israel (Ps. 132:17; cf. II Sam. 22:3).  The title was incorporated into the ancient Jewish prayer called the Eighteen Benedictions (or simply “The Prayer” התפילה), which concludes its call for the coming of the Messiah with: “Blessed are You, O Lord, who causes the Horn of Salvation to spring forth.”  Similarly, the prayer of Zecharias, father of John the Baptist, anticipates the birth of Messiah Yeshua with the words: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited us and accomplished redemption for His people, and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of David His servant” (Luke 1:68-69).

therefore...

Horn of Salvation represents our commitment to proclaim the coming of God’s salvation in Yeshua the Messiah to our people Israel.  We invite you to join with us through your prayers, encouragement and support.  For more information see “Partnership”.
