Spreading the Gospel: Daily Encounters Are Evangelistic Opportunities

At one time, I thought personal evangelism was walking up to strangers on the street and telling them about Yeshua. But as I kept growing in the faith, the Lord opened my eyes to see that I could do more with my day-to-day encounters. A trip to the market or to mail a package could lead to evangelism if I was paying attention to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Look at what Peter said…

Spreading the Gospel: Is It Just Preaching?

A few years back, a young believer asked me how I would define evangelism. I was quick to respond, “The act of spreading the Gospel to the unsaved.” The fellow then responded, “Is that all?” I replied, “Yes, brother. Nothing more.” Before I went to bed that day, the Lord reminded me of the conversation, particularly the question, “Is that all?” Immediately, this man’s response got me thinking. Apart from preaching, what else does evangelism…

Messianic Prophecies in Isaiah: What Do Feet Signify in Isaiah 52:7?

In the Old Testament days, the feet were considered the dirtiest part of the body. There were no shoes. People either wore open sandals or walked barefoot. Interestingly, Isaiah, who lived in this age, described a herald’s feet as beautiful. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isaiah…

International Media Ministries: 5 Must-Have Qualities of a Soul Winner in Israel

The commandment to go into all the world and preach the Gospel is for every believer. Every beneficiary of the new birth has God’s call upon his or her life to reach others with the Good News. This was one of Paul’s emphases when he wrote a second time to the believers at Corinth. “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry…

International Media Ministries: Preaching the Gospel to an Israeli Without Being Pushy

The ability to preach the Gospel without being pushy is a skill every believer needs to add to their toolkit. While there’s a need to be assertive at times, we must learn that honey attracts more flies than vinegar, meaning a gentle approach and a willingness to go one step at a time with individuals is a greatly effective method of evangelism. The Gospel is a beautiful message for all. Paul called it God’s “power…

Spreading the Gospel in a Way that Makes You Say WOW!

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…

International Media Ministries: Reaching the Lost in Israel Without Leaving Your Home

Every believer in Yeshua has the mandate of evangelism. Just before Yeshua’s ascension, He commanded His disciples to go into the world and preach the Gospel. That includes you and me. Paul, in his second epistle to the church in Corinth, called believers in Yeshua “ambassadors for Christ.” It is our responsibility to represent Yeshua well in every interaction we have with others. In the case of the Jewish people, where there are plenty of…

International Media Ministries: You Are Not Too Old to Reach the Lost in Israel

Old age hits people differently. Some people are so full of strength and energy that you are surprised when they tell you their age. But the vast majority are on the other side of the spectrum. It seems their strength dwindles before its time, and they write themselves off from making any further impact in this lifetime or reaching the lost. It should be a different story for those who believed the Gospel. The Bible…

The Messianic Prophecies in Isaiah: Yeshua, the Servant King

The past few weeks have been terrible for Israel, with terror attacks here and there. While the government works tirelessly to contain the situation, things appear to be getting worse. Recently, a Muslim-Arab Knesset member, Ayman Odeh, was found encouraging Arab Police Officers and soldiers to quit serving in the Israel Defense Service. Although that can be discouraging, we should keep hold of God’s promise of protection for Israel (Deuteronomy 31:6). God always keeps to…

The Messianic Prophecies in Isaiah: Eytan Stibbe’s Space Mission and the Life of Yeshua

Life adventures present fresh opportunities to reflect on the fulfillment of the prophetic scriptures, especially the Messianic prophecies in Isaiah. As believers, a simple way to keep the Word of God at heart is to find its relevance in everyday life. With that idea in mind, could the recent space mission of Eytan Stibbe point us to the fulfillment of Messianic prophecies in some way? As part of the Rakia Mission, Stibbe took part in…
