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
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
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
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
