Questions are answered by the pastor Messianic community in Israel Leon Mazin (Haifa):

Whether you share words of known Russian philosopher Vladimir Solov'ev that if Jews were really Jews, and christians were christians, they would be brothers?

- Yes, I believe these words and even frequently I use them in explaining materials. And those, and others should scoop the belief and force from an olive tree, with which Jews were connected by a precept and promise of God from times Abraham, and to which gentiles have taken root through belief in Yeshua Messiah. Those from Jews who ate juices of this tree from antiquity, have learned(found out) in come 2000 back Messiah the promised Deliverer.

Not believed could not be kept on this tree, but in Romans is promise, that in one day they will be take again because of God will visit Israel and belief will return them on the places in an olive.

In Tanakh (Old Testament) the right of Israel people to have their land is fixed; Israel is God the granted land to Jews. Old Testament, as is known, the same God inspired the Book as the New Testament. So why so the voice of the christian world is such weak in protection of Israel?

- Jer. 31:35-37 speaks about the eternal obligation of the God to Israel people:
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

A satan tries these or those ways to lower authority Divine Words and the Divine promise. Therefore he uses any things to destroy Jewish people as the nation on the one hand, and on the other hand - to discredit opinion on Jews among peoples. Misunderstanding of church of the sources, i.e. the Jewish roots of belief, does(makes) their vulnerable for "error". Therefore, in the first, many christians from time immemorial considered, that with Jews the God has finished and Church has replaced for the God Israel. Therefore about " to the land Hanaan promised Abraham and his physical children ", it is possible to forget.

Today this true clears up. Many christians through the Word and revelation of Spirit understand importance of existence of Jews as the nation and the State Israel as their land in plans Divine. The Scripture speaks, that Messiah will return, when His people, i.e. Jews, will appeal to Him from Israel and it will be "by Day" for all believers on all land. Also it is written, that from lack of knowledge people perishes. This lack of knowledge also prevents many christians to lift the voice for to Israel and as result of it many of christians live in problems which " obedience to the Word " eliminates immediately. It is necessary to learn(teach) christians about sense of existence of Israel, about what the Bible speaks

And the borders of Israel specified in Tanakh (Old Testament), whether coincide with territory of present Israel?

- No. But not in it a problem. A problem that peoples try to divide and that small, that at us is. Israel today about 800 kms in length and in narrow place, in width, about 60 kms. It is absurdity also it to divide. As to full borders state Israel - I think it will be in time boards Messiah.

And last question. What now a situation with the sermon of the Word in Israel? On the part of whom you feel support? Who prevents?

- As well as at all times, in Israel is opposition, and there is an openness. Today is ultra - orthodox groups frequently completed with former "communists" which stand up as always for " repressions of heterodoxes ". On the other hand, in people there is a famine on True and people are rather open to the sermon of the Good News. Today many are asked a question: who is the true Jew and how to be the true Jew? And many also understand that rabbinical Judaism in this aspect of the answer not gives.
