February"Anti-missionary" Activities Reported
in Hebrew in the Israeli Media:
These are the types of situations the Israeli Body of Messiah
has been bearing alone without raising an outcry

because they want to avoid
the Church, their spiritual brothers, as seeing
their countrymen, their natural brothers, as ‘the enemy.’
“Greater love has no one than this,
that one lay down his life for his friends.”

Howard Bass of Yeshua’s Inheritance Congregation
in Beer Sheva, Israel wrote on March 1, 2007:

“The recent filing of the lawsuit
against the Chief Rabbi of Beer Sheva and Yad L'Achim

has received written media attention in the Beer Sheva weekly newspaper….
It should be noted that the terminology has been changed
from ‘struggle against the mission’
to ‘war against the mission,’ which is what it was in reality.”

[Yad L'Achim is an "anti-missionary" organization that exists to persecute
the indigenous Jewish believers in Yeshua in Israel. The BeerSheva lawsuit involves the
Dec 25 2005 Orthodox invasion and riot at the Yeshua's Inheritance
Messianic Jewish congregational Shabbat service.--dd]

“We again solicit your on-going and fervent prayers
for all of the brethren
who are involved in this matter,
as well as prayers for the salvation of those who presently oppose us
and who seek to prevent the promulgation of the Gospel in Israel.

“As many of you are aware,
there are a number of different battles going on
around the Promised Land over
the issue of believing in the Name of the Son of God.

[See also The Arad Battle, The Citizenship Battle]

“It does seem that the signs of the times are heating up
-- and not just physical global warming! --
as the works of the Sovereign God
straitens us to bring to pass that "which is written".
Your prayers according to His will for all of us are greatly valued,
and we pray for your own watchfulness in your own territories.”

Important Note:
Please remember that whenever you send out information about the case,
or make mention of it through your various forums and media,

that the following be included as a constant reminder:

This case is not against Israel or against the Jewish people.
It is not to be used in any way to foment
or promote anti-Israel or anti-Jewish actions or reactions.

It is already known through the Scriptures that Israel at present
is opposed to the good news of God,
so we are not out to make them out as an enemy.
Nor is our legal action intended to be used by any other minority
or religious groups in Israel to encourage or affirm
anti-Israel/Jewish sentiment.

For the sake of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob,
Israel and her people are beloved by God the Father
for His honor and glory, and for the honor and glory of His Son.

Make a difference in what happens in this critical hour
because the destiny of all nations lies in the ability
of the believing Remnant to fulfill their purpose
as laborers in the Lord's harvest.
You can help them now by
