I Am Israeli

14 12 2012

On rare occasions I find a way to express my love for and identification to the Israeli people. Today I share a video that does just that. This young lady reminds me of another one that Doreen and I met, in Samaria (West Bank) five years ago, who was amazed and moved to tears by the simple fact that we came… and cared…and loved.

This Hanukkah video is the true report of a real person, Einat Bloch Yefet, a young mother whose brother was murdered by terrorists in Gush Katif. She lived in Gush Katif in Gaza before the “disengagement” when all Jews were removed as a “gesture of Peace”. You know the rest of the story: Hamas took over and now fire rockets into Israel at civilians from closer range with no conscience. So, how do every day Israeli’s deal with it?

It is at times like this that I know that I am Israeli, not by genetics, but by the blood of Yeshua ben Yehovah. We “celebrate” Hanukkah and also Christmas, the birth of the Messiah, not with tinsel and glitter, but with a deep love for God. Yet our celebration is tempered with the sober joy of appreciation for life itself, given to all of us by the ONE Who is the Life-Giver! He is indeed inside of us. He will never leave us or forsake us, even to the end. Thank you Jesus!

“Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace—and one builds a wall, and they plaster it with untempered mortar — say to those who plaster it with untempered mortar, that it will fall.” Ezekiel 13:10

I agree Les, I am Israeli and what a privilege it is.
Thank you so much for keeping us updated and aware of the Middle East happenings.

I recommand people who are teaching or seeking Jewish Roots, to read ” COME, LET US REASON TOGETHER ” by author Baruch Maoz. This book is an effective and appropriate critique of the current Messianic Movement. With all du respect Les, you are not A Israeli ! I believe that it is possible to be both Christian and Jewish without Messianic Judaism. I have found out that as a Jewish Christian, I can retain my cultural identity, without losing fellowship with Christians.

Thank you for your comment. My comment under the video was intended to make it clear that I do not have Jewish genes, but I praise God that I have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby I can say “Abba, Father.” I certainly identify with the dear mother in the video (as JFK in Berlin). Blessings to you!
