Also, remember that there are many Jews that are returning to Christ today as well. Many years ago I was a founding member of a Messianic Congregation who played rhythm guitar in their worship band. There are Jews today returning to the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Pray for the Jewish people that their hearts become shot and they see who the Messiah is. I've seen grown Jewish men whole countenance change and dance around happy as can be because they came to understand who the Messiah is - for them - the Old Testament comes alive to them and the they see Jesus throughout its pages!

I have a dear friend who went to Israel and said he hated it. He also told me that the Body of Christ out there is beautiful. When he came back to the states for some reason Jewish people would just come up to him and ask him about Jesus. Just out of the blue.

I pray that God will remove the veil from their eyes and ears as well as their hearts. Some feel as if you lose your Jewish identity if you come to Christ. I'm Jewish, and I know exactly who I am. Especially in Christ.
Jesus died for ALL. End of story.
