About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

A Review of the Awakening video from Jews For Jesus

Jews For Jesus, as their name indicates, is a group of Jewish people (with support from non-Jewish people) sharing the fact that Jesus is the Messiah with Jewish people. They have about twenty branches around the world. JFJ has every earthly reason to be indirect, but they aren’t. For heavenly reasons, they purposely keep things right up front. Even in the streets of New York City. 
That’s what they’ve been doing since 1974 and that’s what they’ll be doing this summer. The JFJ annual Summer Witnessing Campaign will hit the streets and subways of NYC in July. For 2012, the campaign title is Awakening. With passionately committed and courageous young people (and some not so young), JFJ will make Y’shua (Jesus) the Messiah an unavoidable topic of discussion to as many people as possible. 
There are roughly two million Jewish people living in NYC, making it the most diverse and highest Jewish population of any city in the world. JFJ is taking the gospel of Jesus Christ the Lord to these Jewish people and also to the non-Jewish. NYC is likely the most challenging and opinionated environment for Jewish evangelism, other than Israel. 
Some organizations exist to funnel money to Jewish people, but exclude the gospel of the Messiah. JFJ makes the messiahship of Jesus the highest priority message, mode and method. They know that the best help to offer anyone is to help them to be reconciled to the Messiah. JFJ excels at doing that highest good for the Jewish people. 
Awakening is a creative campaign involving literature, music, drama, secular media outreach and social media evangelism. JFJ will soon release their Awakening video. The Awakening video is a lively, well done introduction to the Awakening campaign where they will display their theme on their t-shirts and openly ask the all-important question, “Who is He?” The Awakening video is an inspiring look at their valiant effort to communicate the messiahship of Jesus in English and Hebrew. JFJ will attempt to hand out over forty thousand gospel tracts with contemporary, humorous and very concise messages with impact. QR (Quick Response) codes on the backs of some t-shirts are shown directing those that scan them to introductory videos to JFJ and the Messiah. The Awakening video shows the campaigners carrying JFJ labeled shoulder bags full of tracts. Pep talks are shown often ending with the uplifting words, “Give ‘em heaven!” Some of the seasoned members of JFJ are shown preparing the current generation of future JFJ leaders. You’ll see weekly meetings where all are invited to learn more about the Messiah Jesus. Sometimes a rabbi will attend to challenge them. You’ll witness their daily devotional times where JFJ campaign workers recharge their batteries for their long days. The Awakening video lets you see the “Sortie Cards” used to gather information from the few willing people on the streets. “Sortie” is an appropriate word, since JFJ is attacking against Satan’s position in people’s lives and souls.
