The Gospel is the most important news in the world, the most important thing anyone could ever hear. What a privilege God has given you and me to labor with Him to reach the lost in Israel! But as Carl Henry said, “The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.”
We must never lose our grip on the urgency of evangelism. Now is the time to trust God for more open doors to spread the Word. Can you remember what Yeshua said when He healed the man born blind in John 9:4? He said, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
We can’t just sit by and say, “I know the end is near.” Beloved, it is time to use every available means to tell Israel that the Savior has come.
Over the years, our ministry has trusted God in prayer for creative means to reach the lost sheep of the house of Israel. We are glad to announce that one of the answers to our prayer is here! It is like nothing you’ve ever seen before – not in Israel or the world. It will help us present the Gospel in a unique and engaging way. Wondering what this amazing evangelistic tool is? We are calling it the WOW!BIBLE.
The WOW!BIBLE is a God-given idea to present the ageless truth of the Word of God to Israel. You and I know how difficult it is to come by the writings of the New Testament in Israel. The best you can find in libraries and bookstores are the Old Testament books. The New Testament is considered unacceptable to sell or own!
I am grateful to God that instead of this cultural taboo being a hindrance, God is turning it into an advantage, and we are using the acceptability of the Old Testament to spread the New Testament Gospel in Israel. Our testimony is like Paul’s experience while imprisoned. Little did the believers at Philippi know that God was causing all things to work together for the furtherance of His mission. In the voice of a victor, Paul exclaimed,
“But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the Gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.” (Philippians 1:12-14)
Similarly, God is changing the narrative in Israel with the WOW!BIBLE. The merciful God who saved my soul and yours will cause an outburst of revelation among His people.
The WOW!BIBLE features the Old Testament books of the Bible separated from each other and embellished with unique and artistic illustrations that melt the heart. We are designing this evangelistic tool to creatively link users to the beautiful stories of the New Testament books and fulfilled Messianic prophecies that we have developed into touching video animations.
Every book of the Old Testament will have QR codes linking to passages revealing Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel. When you open your smartphone’s camera and point it toward a QR code, your phone will automatically show you a weblink that with one simple click will open the appropriate webpage. The webpage will contain animated videos of passages in the New Testament that connect to the specific verse or verses in the Old Testament book being read.
We are taking advantage of this unique journey through history to give background to the life of Yeshua. Our compelling presentation of the Old Testament scripture and our creative linking to the corresponding New Testament passage will show readers how Yeshua fulfilled the Messiah’s credentials as prophesied!
Readers will uncover how amazing and how Jewish the New Testament books actually are. We believe many lost sheep of Israel will say, “Israel’s salvation has come!” And you know, it won’t just be a statement of logic; God’s power will convince them to believe this too-good-to-be-true news!
By God’s grace, we will spread the Gospel in a way that builds faith. Like Isaiah prophesied, the non-believers in Israel will arise, shine, and rejoice in the glory of the Lord.
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” (Isaiah 61:1-2)
The WOW!BIBLE will be one of a kind! We are launching with the book of Genesis, and then we will develop and include other Old Testament books such as Exodus, the Psalms, Song of Solomon, Jonah, and Isaiah. Promotion of the WOW!BIBLE will begin in Israel immediately upon completion of the book of Genesis.
Regardless of the current events taking place in Israel, God is equipping us with ideas to reach the unsaved with the message of Yeshua. We are committed to spreading the Gospel until the knowledge of God’s glory fills all of Israel “as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14). Your prayers and donations will significantly help us reach more Jewish people within the shortest amount of time. Remember, “the Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.”
