Eschatology and this presidential election

Eschatology and this presidential election

www.onenewsnow.com  Sep. 5, 2016

The head of a messianic Jewish ministry believes a Hillary Clinton presidency could hasten the biblical end-times prophecies.

As OneNewsNow has reported, Israel recently received a severe blow with the revelation that Iran was installing highly sophisticated Russian-made air defense missiles to defend one of its key nuclear sites, making it virtually impossible for Israel to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries and host of "Understanding the Times" on American Family Radio, blames the John Kerry-brokered Iran nuclear deal for allowing this to happen. And she is afraid of what will happen if Hillary Clinton is allowed to continue the policies of Barack Obama.

"I think that a Hillary Clinton presidency will speed up the end-times scenario," Markell warns. "Some of these activities happen much more quickly, which is perhaps what God has in mind. We don't know the mind of God; we do know that He has things outlined in the Bible that have to happen."

26th Anniversary Arab Christian / Messianic Jewish Fellowship of Southern CA.
On Saturday, June 4, 5:00 pm – 9:30 pm, over 15 Messianic Jewish and Arab Christian congregations and organizations will be sponsoring the Arab Christian/Messianic Jewish Fellowship of Southern, California. It will be at Life Pacific College in Simonson Chapel at 1100 W. Covina Boulevard San Dimas, California  91773 (Use of Life Pacific’s facility doesn’t necessarily constitute support of or endorsement by them.)

This meeting of Arab Christians and Messianic Jews is rather unique outside of Israel. The fellowship shows that the only true answer to peace between Jews and Arabs is Messiah Yeshua. Over the years, the meeting of 400 - 500 people has brought healing and stronger unity between Messianic Jews and Arab Christians. Also, unbelieving Jews and Arabs who have attended the fellowship have seen a powerful witness of what Messiah Yeshua is doing.

This year’s meeting will be the 26th Anniversary meeting of the fellowship which was started in 1988 by Messianic Rabbi Howard Silverman and Arab Christian Pastor Jamil Fakhoury. Some special activities are planned to celebrate this wonderful milestone. There will be anointed  Messianic Jewish and Arab Christian music, joyful Messianic Dance, powerful testimonies by a Messianic Jew (Sally Klein O’Connor) and an Arab Christian, Scripture readings, small group prayer together and fellowship. 

Messianic Jews, Arab Christians and lovers of reconciliation between the two are welcome to attend. Also, people are welcome to bring those who are not yet followers of Yeshua but are open to such a meeting. No advance reservations are required. There is no charge to attend, but a love offering will be taken at the meeting to cover the expenses. Childcare will be provided for children up to eight years old. During the middle of the evening, there will be a free oneg consisting of a Middle Eastern, Vegetarian Falafel and drink.

SWU choice of venue prompts controversy
www.sdjewishworld.com   April 19, 2016

SAN DIEGO – Swirling beneath the planned May 4 appearance of Pastor Dumisani Washington, a leading African-American advocate for the State of Israel is controversy over the relationship between the Jewish community and the Christians who seek to convert us.  Washington’s appearance, sponsored by the pro-Israel organization StandWithUs, is scheduled May 4 in  Rancho San Diego at the Skyline Church.

No one accuses Washington of wanting to convert Jews, but Skyline Church, a mega-church at which he will be speaking, includes the Tree of Life Messianic Jewish Congregation, part of a Christian movement that tells Jews that they can believe in Jesus as their savior and still be Jews.

The executive director of StandWithUs, Roz Rothstein, told San Diego Jewish World that her organization “does not partner on events directly with Messianic Congregations. Sometimes, however, the Christian partners we work with (because they love and honor Israel), may have their own association with members of a Messianic Congregation. In this particular case, we are holding an event (with a Christian Pastor) at a Christian church that wants to educate its congregation about Israel, and which also happens to have their own affiliation with a Messianic group, unrelated to the work of StandWithUs.”

Messianic Jewish group lobbying for '1-state solution'
Bible is 'Israel's title deed to the land'

www.wnd.com   April 9, 2016

The Messianic Jewish movement has opened a lobbying office in Washington, D.C., that will push the U.S. government to support Israel and ditch the so-called “two-state solution” that has been promoted by Republican and Democrat administrations for decades.

The Alliance for Israel Advocacy will take a different approach to lobbying Congress than any other organization, says the man heading up the effort.

Paul Liberman, executive director of AIA, is leader of Ohav Shalom Messianic Congregation in Palm Springs, California, and the former publisher of the Messianic Times. He formerly worked as the U.S. Department of Commerce’s director of congressional relations under Presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter and has been active in Republican politics since that time.

Messianic Jews believe that Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah and represent a small but unique segment of evangelical Christianity.

Barry Segal—Bringing Messianic Melodies to Ohio This Shabbat
International speaker and leading Messianic recording artist, Barry Segal is on his way to Cleveland, Ohio, to share spicy Middle Eastern sounds mixed with the smooth modern world melodies of his musical stylings in a special one-day event.

Tikvat Israel Messianic Synagogue located in Lyndhurst, Ohio, is hosting a Messianic Jewish Worship Concert featuring the acclaimed member of the husband-wife duo, Barry and Batya. Your chance to experience their music live, in person will be this Shabbat, Saturday, March 19, 2016, at 10:30 a.m.

With hits like, “On Your Walls O Jerusalem” and “Esa Einai” Barry and Batya Segal are not only one of Israel's leading Messianic recording artists but well-loved and known internationally for their ability to proclaim the Word of God in their music.

Blending rhythmic praise with ethnic overtones and mixing the Hebrew and English languages, the music of Barry and Batya’s albums, such as “Sh'ma Yisrael,” “Day 7” and “Go Through the Gates" will create in you a new and passionate expression of worship towards "The Holy One of Israel.”

But—music isn’t all Barry does. He is a journalist and the host and producer of the television series Roots & Reflections as well as the President and co-founder of Vision for Israel, a non-profit organization at the forefront of what God is doing in Israel and the nations. This ministry was created by the Segals in 1994 out of the desire to help build and restore the Land, and freely provides aid to the poor and needy people, both Jewish and Arab, living in the nation of Israel today through The Joseph Storehouse, an international humanitarian aid center operating in the Judean Hills just outside of Jerusalem.

Barry grew up in the USA and discovered Yeshua (Jesus) when he was a young musician living a colorful lifestyle in Detroit and Cleveland. Returning to Ohio for this special praise and worship event at Tikvat Israel is a full-circle event that you will not want to miss.

Visit tikvatcleveland.org to learn more about attending this event and stop by visionforisrael.com to sample some of the musical stylings of the Segals and to find out more about what Vision for Israel has planned for the rest of the year .
U.S. in the business of terrorist rehab?
www.onenewsnow.com   March 14, 2016

The head of a Messianic Jewish ministry doesn't agree with the plan of a district judge to allow four terrorists to go through a "de-radicalization" program.

According to The Star Tribune, U.S. District Judge Michael Davis has ordered four Twin-Cities area men facing federal terrorism charges to participate in a first-of-a-kind de-radicalization program. This will be facilitated under the supervision of Davis and a German expert on Islamic terrorism, who will visit Minnesota next month.

The defendants — who face potentially long prison sentences — have pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

Davis says an evaluation by the German scholar would help him understand their motives — and their potential for rehabilitation.

Please lift up Rabbi Cahn as he humbly and boldly approaches this miraculous opportunity to shine the Light of Messiah before the UN.
Trump’s neutral stance on Israel questioned
www.onenewsnow.com   Feb. 29, 2016Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s continued lack of understanding about the difference between Israel and the terrorists who control the Palestinian territories is deeply troubling to one leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry.

During the latest GOP debate in Austin, Texas, the GOP frontrunner reiterated that he would take a neutral stance in disputes between Israel and the Palestinians.

Olive Tree Ministries Founder and Director Jan Markell, who hosts American Family Radio’s “Understanding the Times” program, believes that evangelicals who support Trump need to re-evaluate their position.
Trump says he would remain neutral on the Israel-Palestinian conflict because ...
He believes it's a non-issue
He can say anything and not lose support
He doesn't understand the ramifications
He doesn't support Israel
He really intends to do so
VoteView ResultsPolldaddy.com

"This is a bedrock evangelical position — not to be neutral when it comes to the Middle East conflict,” the Christian leader explained. “We have many churches now caving to replacement theology, which says the Church is the new Israel.”

Merkel cannot understand anyone’s argument to equally support Israel and the Palestinians in their longtime dispute.

Rabbi Stuart Dauermann speaking in Agoura Hills, California
Rabbi Stuart Dauermann will be speaking on Shabbat, January 16th and 30th at Beth Emunah Messianic Synagogue in Agoura Hills, California.

Convinced that Yeshua of Nazareth is Israel’s Messiah while attending Manhattan School of Music (MSM) in the 1960’s, Rabbi Stuart Dauermann continues to speak and teach about Messianic Judaism to this day.  

Dr. Dauermann has spent the past fifty years using various media to encourage people to revise their assumptions about Jews, Christians and the One whom he now calls “The More Jewish Jesus.” These media included music, with his Messianic Music sung all over the world; radio, an interview radio show on KRLA-Los Angeles, Shalom Talk: Conversations for Change; publications like his dissertation on The Rabbi as a Surrogate Priest, and monographs about a new vision for Jewish Christian relations and a different kind of future for Messianic Jews. He now directs Interfaithfulness, with a mission statement, “Upgrading Spirituality and Relationships for Christians and Jews.”

Rabbi Dauermann describes his upcoming discussion at Beth Emunah as follows: The impact of Yeshua of Nazareth includes the sending forth of his Spirit to inhabit and interact with his followers. He said we would be enabled to do the same things he did, and even greater. But this must not be interpreted as an invitation to act weird. Therefore this workshop is about getting well instead of getting weird!

If you want to know more about what this means, why it matters, and how it can be real in your experience, attend the two part workshop,  “Being Naturally Supernatural: Experiencing the Companionship of the Holy Spirit Without Getting Weird” taught by Rabbi Stuart Dauermann, PhD. Shabbat, January 16 and 30. Bring your Bibles and something to write with.
