Israeli Jew in Israel

Israeli Jew in Israel

Sabra Jews are those born in the land of Israel, particularly since the founding of the Jewish State in 1948. "Sabra" is derived from the Hebrew name of the prickly pear cactus. The allusion is to a tenacious, thorny desert plant with a thick hide that conceals a sweet, softer interior. All Israeli young people, both men and women, receive military training and become part of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).

Ministry Obstacles

Jewish identity is threatened when a Jew acknowledges Jesus as his or her Messiah. Their Jewish identity needs to be enhanced by following Jesus the Messiah.

Outreach Ideas

The gospel is available if the hearts of Israeli Jews are prepared to hear and receive it. TV and radio programs in Hebrew would be helpful.

Scripture Focus

"You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it."  Psalm 139:5-6

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will be in awe of the blessings of the Lord.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Christ's followers among Israeli Jews would be faithful witnesses to their families and friends. Pray that these Messianic Jews would live lives that fully honor the Lord Jesus. Pray the Lord would give Jewish families understanding as they hear about the love of Christ. Pray that the veil over their spiritual eyes would increasingly be lifted, allowing them to accurately see Jesus as their Messiah. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move powerfully among Israeli Jewish leaders.
