Salvation is of the Jews

Dear Friends of Derek Prince Israel:
50 years have passed quickly, and tonight we find ourselves in Jerusalem in the same apartment we secured in June of 2003. One year earlier Derek Prince had established a new Branch of Derek Prince Ministries, naming it Derek Prince Israel. His invitation to us was to become Directors of this new endeavor, for the purpose of being an encouragement to the Jewish people in various ways.
Having learned that without the Jews we would have no patriarchs, no prophets, no apostles, no Bible – and no Savior we were in a position to humbly and in the Fear of the Lord, accept the call. It is important for us as Christians to acknowledge the truth of what Jesus said to the Samaritan woman. “Salvation is of the Jews.”
We have seen many changes in our short time in Israel. There is greater pressure in all the nations of the world today.
We need to bear in mind that one major factor in God’s judgment of all other nations will be their treatment of the Jews. In Matthew 25:31–46 we have a picture of Christ as King at the end of this age on the throne of His glory, with all nations arraigned before Him for judgment. They are separated into two categories—the “sheep,” who are accepted into Christ’s kingdom, and the “goats,” who are rejected from His kingdom. In each case, the reason given by Christ is, “Inasmuch as you did it—or did not do it—to one of the least of these My brethren” (vv. 40, 45). The nations who show mercy to the Jews will receive mercy from God; the nations who deny mercy to the Jews will be denied mercy from God.” -- Derek Prince, Our Debt to Israel

 

One of the greatest changes we see in Israel is the love for Israel from Christians all over the world, and also the understanding of the Jewish people that Christians are their friends. Over the centuries the Jews have seen little among the Christians that would allow them to trust us. In seeking and praying for the good of Israel, Gentile Christians need to remind ourselves that we are serving not merely the interests of Israel, but even more those of our own nation.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,   to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)

In the Great Love of God,

George and Betty Jackson, Directors,

DEREK PRINCE ISRAEL
