The Reasons given below for why Jesus can Not be the Messiah are very easily defeated! I am surprised they could not come up with anything better than that to justify their case for rejecting Yehoshua of Natser. I Love You my Jewish Brethren, Receive Ye the Holy Ghost!! Then you will know HIM Spiritually, and with fulfillment in your Souls! You will know that John the Baptist was right, when he said, ….He shall Baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with Fire! He is the Baptizer, always was, and Still is! You cannot Know him as Messiah without the Spirit!
You can mentally accept the idea, but you cannot know Him!!!!!!!!! Seek the Spirit, and receive the Holy Ghost, you will then have your answers! God Bless You so Very Much.
This is an Email I received confirming my request for the Messianic Prophecy Bible. The content was so poignant, and the burden I felt over the matter was so powerful, that I wanted somehow to share this with all. Please read and let Yehoshua of Natser reveal his Messiahship in a deeper way! Help these folks if you can.
Recently, a Messianic Rabbi denounced his faith in Yeshua (Jesus). He was a strong Believer for more than 20 years and the “shepherd of a flock.” However, he gave into the lies that Yeshua is not the Messiah.
He lives an Orthodox Jewish lifestyle and now he speaks in Jewish synagogues and to individual Jewish Believers denouncing the Messiahship of Yeshua and the power of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).
In Matthew 24:10-13, Yeshua speaks about the End Times saying:
“At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
At our ministry headquarters, we are regularly in touch with Jewish people who previously believed in Yeshua as their Messiah, but who have since given up their faith in Him.

For the past two months, we have been meeting with Daryl, an Orthodox Jew who once believed in Yeshua.
Seventeen years ago, while living in England, he accepted Yeshua as his Messiah, although within that same year, he renounced his faith.
“Yes, I did believe in Yeshua (Jesus), I even spoke in tongues,” Daryl said. “One night, I felt a warm hand massaging my heart. I knew that it was the Lord. At the time, it seemed right that Yeshua was the Messiah.”
Daryl then met some Orthodox Jews who began to explain to him all the reasons why they believe Yeshua is not the Messiah.
Here are just a few of the “Jewish Objections” explained to Daryl:
- The Messiah doesn’t come to start a new religioncalled Christianity.
- Millions of Jews have been murdered because of Christianity. Just look at the six million (6,000,000) Jews who were starved, tortured, and gassed to death in the Holocaust by Nazis who were German Lutheran Christians. And look at the millions of Jews who were murdered by the Catholic Church which created the Spanish Inquisitions and Pogroms. So why would a Jew ever believe in Christianity and Yeshua? The Jewish Messiah doesn’t come to murder the Jewish people: He comes to bring salvation.
- Jews don’t believe in the Trinity. There is only One God, not three. The first commandment is to worship only One God; therefore, to believe in Yeshua is idol worship.
- God doesn’t have a son. The virgin birth was a pagan story before the time of Yeshua, and the writers of the New Testament took this story from Greek and Egyptian mythology.
- The Messiah isn’t divine: he is a just a man, and he certainly doesn’t die for one’s sins. We repent for our sins; a man can’t take them away. Only God can take them away.
- Jews believe the Messiah will come once, not twice. He doesn’t come and then return again.
- If Yeshua were the Messiah, then the Jewish People would have recognized him 2000 years ago. Even today, Jewish people do not accept him as Messiah. When the Messiah comes, we will recognize him.
- When the Jewish Messiah comes, there will be peace on earth, and the Lion will lie down with the lamb. Today, there are wars going on all around the world. It is clear the Messiah has not yet come.
These are just a few of the reasons why Daryl stopped believing in Yeshua!
After Daryl rejected Yeshua, he became a very observant Orthodox Jew.
Daryl loves God with all of his heart, and like all other Orthodox Jews, he is awaiting the coming of the Jewish Messiah.
“I like Jesus,” Daryl said. “Most Jews don’t understand who he was. Jesus was a good Jew, and a holy man. He was a Torah Observant (Orthodox) Jew, and his teachings were good, BUT he is not the Messiah.”
Daryl has become good friends with our ministry outreach workers over the last two months. They go to his home, usually on Shabbat, to discuss the prophecies and answer Daryl’s objections to Yeshua. Currently, they are spending the next few weeks going over the Messianic Prophecy of Daniel 9:24-26.This prophecy is about bringing an end to sin and bringing in everlasting righteousness. It is associated with an Anointed One who is “cut off/killed” around the years 31-33 AD. Now, who do we know was killed around 31-33 AD? It’s hard to believe that Daryl and all Orthodox Jews reject that this is speaking about Yeshua.
Daryl freely discusses all of these issues in front of his wife and children, as well as Orthodox Jewish friends and neighbors who come to his house on Shabbat. Last Shabbat, there were 13 of his Orthodox friends at his home who eventually joined into the conversation. You can imagine how lively and intense the discussion was…. It lasted for many hours.
Each year, hundreds of Jewish people accept Yeshua (Jesus) as their Lord and Messiah. Unfortunately, each year many Jewish people, just like Daryl, stop believing in Yeshua due to the objections to Yeshua and rabbinical refutations of the Messianic Prophecies.
In most cases, when a Jewish person accepts Yeshua, it isn’t long before their family or friends contact a local rabbi, who then convinces them that they have become a traitor to Judaism and an idol worshipper.
“One Israeli Jewish man said to his brother just this week, “Shmuel, you are no longer Jewish, you are an idolator because you believe that a man is God!”
The rabbi or family member then goes through all of the Jewish objections and refutations of the Messianic Prophecies, and it isn’t long before the person denies their faith in Yeshua.A Jewish person can become emotionally devastated due to the rejection from family and friends. So in order not to feel like an outcast within their Jewish community and circle of friends, they leave their faith in Yeshua.
In some rare cases, new Jewish Believers have even been kidnapped by family and friends in order to “deprogram” them from believing in Yeshua.It’s tragic for a Jewish family when their son or daughter accepts Yeshua. Some parents have disowned their children and even sat shiva (the Jewish tradition of mourning for seven days), as if their child had literally died.
The Kidnapping of Mark
A number of years ago, a Jewish father was involved in having his son Mark, a young adult who just accepted Yeshua, kidnapped so that some radical Orthodox Jews could‘deprogram’ him from his new faith in Yeshua. To these Orthodox Jews and his father, Mark’s new belief in Yeshua was tragic. They believed that Mark was brainwashed and now part of a cult with other Jews who believed in Yeshua. Mark was held captive for a number of days while the Orthodox Jews tried to “deprogram” him, doing everything to convince him that Yeshua is not the Jewish Messiah.
Our Bibles For Israel ministry is not here just to reach unsaved Jewish people; we also have a mandate to strengthen the faith of Jewish people who are already saved.With the Messianic Prophecy Bible, Jewish Believers will be able to answer all of the Objections to Yeshua, and they will no longer be prone to wavering in their faith or denying Yeshua as their Messiah.
In the past couple of years, we have seen hundreds of Jewish Believers leave the faith.Most of them were at one time very “dedicated” and “on fire” Believers; however, the pressures of being a Jewish Believer in Yeshua can be very intense and painful as Jewish family and friends reject you.
Michael, you can help educate Jewish Believers and strengthen them in the Messianic faith
The Bible says in Isaiah 5:13, ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge so there will be a famine in the land.’ Never were truer words spoken. Today’s generation of the Jewish people need the Messianic Prophecy Bible!
With your help, we will one day reach our goal of distributing the Messianic Prophecy Bible for Free to the 5.5 million Jews in Israel. We will also get this Bible out to the Jewish people in America, Canada, Australia and England, as well as to Jewish communities throughout the world.
With many Blessings from Jerusalem,
From all the ministry staff in Israel
We only want the participation of Believers that the Lord is leading to help educate the Jewish people – if you are one of them please click here
