The Bethel Witness

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. . . and the street of the city was of pure gold, as it were transparent glass."
(Rev. 21:2, 21)

Shabbat shalom!
Every week seems to bring more horror to our world. 
An interesting perspective from Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
Bonhoeffer believed that the problem of evil could only be understood in light of the Fall of mankind. The Fall caused the disunion of man and God with the result that man is incapable of discerning right and wrong. Modern men have a vague uneasiness about their ability to know right and wrong. Bonhoeffer asserted this is in part due to the desire for philosophical certainty. However, Bonhoeffer urged the Christian to be concerned with living the will of God rather than finding a set of rules one may follow. And while Bonhoeffer was not advocating a direct and individual revelation in every ethical dilemma, he did believe that man can have knowledge of the will of God. He said that "if a man asks God humbly God will give him certain knowledge of His will; and then, after all this earnest proving there will be the freedom to make real decisions, and [this] with the confidence that it is not man but God Himself who through this proving gives effect to His will."

PASSOVER/EASTER 2014

How I love these HOLY days, as they are so totally significant to Judaism and Christianity. Have no doubt that there is no coincidence or conspiracy that PASSOVER and JESUS’ death, burial and resurrection are so closely aligned. For decades, I have been reading various accounts written by individuals trying to determine exact dates and times of all these events. Unless you were present 2000 years ago, it is all pure speculation. Even Josephus, who worked both sides of the street (a Jew who worked for the Romans), is often questionable. You can be sure of one thing, however, this PASSOVER/EASTER season, and that is that by HIS grace and mercy HE set His people free from the horrors of Egyptian bondage. The Bible clearly foretold that HE would came again as MESSIAH and, as it states in Isaiah 53, in HIS grace and mercy, through HIS death, HIS burial and HIS resurrection, He set ALL people free for all eternity. It is a time to embrace The LORD OUR MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST, who is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings.
May you have a blessed Passover and a joyous Easter. JNS 2014

A HOPELESS CALLING?

Pastor James N. Stretchberry

I am often amazed at the response of acquaintances when I tell them of my ministry.  I pray that we are all engaged in work that the Lord validates and that is affirmed by the counsel of our closest brothers and sisters in the faith.  When I began at A.E.B.M., my pastor, a man I hold in the highest esteem (Pastor Ricky Ryan) told me “this work is made for you Jim”.  That comment, along with a lot of prayer and the affirmation of my wife, was all it took.  Imagine my surprise when I recently met with a lifelong friend who commented, “I never knew anyone engaged in a more hopeless work!”  This was my friend’s reaction when he discovered I was involved in a Mission to the Jews.  As I thought about this, I started to see his point.  What could appear more hopeless than to seek to turn the Jew away from his religious devotions?  There they stand, entrenched in thousands of years of tradition, extremely embittered against the Christian faith by countless years of persecution, which continue to this day in the name of Christ.  How could they ever turn to Christ?

Our Vision:

Our primary focus is evangelism among world Jews and bringing Jesus to Israel through the distribution of  literature, radio ministry, small group fellowships and the training of Jewish believers to be sent out as tent makers and missionaries. We also desire to edify Hebrew Christians in the Spirit of oneness with the whole body of Christ, in whom there is neither Jew nor Gentile.
