Look who’s clinging to Naomi…

 

It’s Erev Shavuot , and time for a little revelation…Joel Bell is in Israel and he is promoting a concept among Israeli government and organizational leaders which has Avodah Zarah stamped all over it. Listen and watch as this missionary leader – who sits on the Board of Governors of World Likud - tells Jewish leaders that, “This isn’t a Christian thing. This isn’t a religious thing…” – and then you decide.

 

PLUS a Jewish perspective on the Christian concept of "grafting". What does “your people shall be my people” mean to an evangelical, and what does it mean to us?...more

 

Jewish Israel wishes Am Yisrael a reflective and meaningful Shavuot.

Chag Sameach!

 

Likud’s Assulin: Opportunist or Apostate?

·  Posted by Jewish Israel on May 24, 2009 at 10:00pm

It’s hard to know what truly motivates a young Israeli politician to embrace a Jesus cult, but on the eve of Shavout - a festival which marks our spiritual redemption from the bondage of idolatry and immorality – Likud’s Sagiv Assulin has chosen to play with a strange fire which threatens to consume the Jewish State.

Assulin has recklessly thrown his support and faith behind the messianic Christian Ephraimite movement and he has embraced the theology and promoted the agenda of Joel Bell – a notorious evangelical missionary leader, who sits on the Board of Governors of World Likud.

Bell has called upon messianic Christians to move en masse to Israel , "buy land in Israel” and lay claim to their “right to own a home” in the Land of Israel, because Gentiles “have been grafted in to the commonwealth of Israel through Melchizedek - Yehoshua HaMashiach (Jesus)”. Israel is, therefore, their “eternal inheritance” which they will share with their “brother Judah” (religious Jews).

And this Shavout , Joel Bell’s World Biblical Zionist organization has a “gigantic homecoming celebration” planned to WELCOME HOME EPHRAIM! - Complete with “an official homecoming welcome from a government official who will speak to the returning pilgrims and welcome them here”

Whether it was a case of political opportunism, a quest for funding, or an ideological journey, Assulin admittedly and wholeheartedly entrusted evangelicals Joel and Pamela Bell with both fully managing his political campaign, and raising funds for him through the messianic Christian Ephraimite movement.

In addition, JewishIsrael obtained correspondence in which Assulin personally solicited funds from messianics and disseminated a link to a speech he gave which endorses and accepts Christian end-times theology and a program which opens the doors of the Jewish State to accepting vast numbers of evangelical Christians as joint heirs to the Land of Israel.

Back in December, JewishIsrael reported that certain messianic leaders had accused Bell of mishandling WBZ funding and questioned his credibility and accountability. It was also reported that eyewitnesses at a pre-election Likud event saw Danny Dannon run up to Joel Bell with an urgent request for heavy funding. At that time it was suggested that the money trail be investigated. It is imperative that responsible Jewish citizens demand transparency on this issue.

 

How entrenched and influential are evangelizing Christians in the Israeli government?

Knesset Caucus Christians deceive authorities:
Missionaries Roy and Mary Kendall, who are active members of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus are boasting via email of having crept into the Jewish state by rather deceptive means…

 

"...we were advised to get new passports so as not to have stamps showing entry into Israel (which we did immediately)… we were advised to "lay low" for awhile ...We've also been advised not to publically write the details (emails are being screened by authorities) so let's just say that Mary's entry agent was overwhelmed by her good looks, and mine was satisfied with a "grunt" when asked if it was my first time here...Nuff said!

Missionary rumble and Messianic rumblings:
Fists and new testaments were reportedly flying in Rehovot last week. Ynet reported that messianic missionaries were attempting “to convince passersby to convert.” which outraged Orthodox residents and provoked a fight. Ynet correctly emphasizes in their article that the messianic movement “has its origins in American Evangelistic churches and its purpose is to convert Jews to Christianity.” But the messianic publication Israel Today puts a different spin on the incident. Meanwhile, Haaretz reports that messianic Christians are taking the fight to Israel’s High Court in yet another attempt to change Israel's Law of Return...more

 

The Post-Pope Postscript:
The people of Israel are clearly suffering from Pope fatigue, but a little closure is called for over this failed multi-million shekel venture, traffic headache, and momentous waste of time and energy. The rabbis featured prominently during Benedict XVI's visit...more
