Israeli Jewish in Israel

Israeli Jewish 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

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."  Isaiah 55:8-9

Scripture Prayer

Pray that today’s people group will understand that God’s ways are far higher than theirs.

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.
