Outreach to Israelis through media in Hebrew

Is there a way to reach hundreds of thousands of Israelis for the Lord today? Does the Lord want all Israel to be saved? Of course! That’s why He sent His Son to redeem His people, by dying on the cross.

So how can we reach hundreds of thousands of Israelis? The answer is simple – media!

Since 2010, different Israeli Messianic ministries have been producing Hebrew language videos, including testimonies, teachings, interviews and music video clips. Yeshuachai.tv brings all these together for broadcasting through our own 24/7 TV channel on the Internet, along with our own productions.

Since we started broadcasting on 21 September 2015, we have given away hundreds of physical copies of the New Testament, 40,000 unique users have entered our website, we have reached 80,000 Israelis through our social media pages, and we have just started referring people to local congregations. All this means we are one of the largest outreaches to Israelis since the time of Yeshua.

The breakthrough came when we started using a professional marketing company to advertise the channel through a systematic marketing campaign.

Our great desire and wish is to see all our people saved. As Paul said in Romans 9:1-3:

I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh.

Should we all have the same passion as Paul for the people of Israel? It is understandable why we Israelis have it, but why should non-Jews carry this burden too? Well, Paul explains in Romans 11:12:  

But if their [Israel’s] transgression means riches for the world, and their [Israel’s] loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring! I am talking to you Gentiles.

How wonderful it is that now you too are grafted into that cultivated olive tree with us and are receiving nourishment from it. However, there is much more to come – when we the original branches that were cut off are all grafted back in, it will bring greater blessings and then the Lord himself will return. So, we are waiting for the second coming of our Lord Yeshua, and one of the conditions for His return is that the leaders of the Jewish nation will cry out “Baruch Haba Beshem Adonai” – Blessed is He who comes in the name of our Lord.

In Romans 10:1 Paul says –

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.

Its good to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for the prosperity of the land and for the soldiers, but the most important prayer that we can pray is for salvation.

The vision of Yeshuachai.tv is based on the promise of Romans 11:26, that, “All Israel will be saved”.

I believe that we’ve been called in these end-times to actively participate in a spiritual revolution. With God’s help we need to together awaken Israel to return to the Lord, so that He will return to our world.

Please join us in this revolution by partnering with us.
