How Can a Jewish Person Find Peace With God?

Dear Jewish Friend,

 

I believe it can be proven that the prophecy of Isaiah 53 is talking about Jesus. He was the true Messiah. The Messiah (Jesus Christ) is the One Who gives you the hope of everlasting life in Heaven. Because of the Messiah a Jewish person can find peace with God. This peace comes through the forgiveness of sins and receiving the free gift of eternal life in Heaven, which Messiah offers to you today.

 

There is something that the God of Israel requires of every Jewish person. You must KNOW what Messiah has done for you personally and RECEIVE His free gift of forgiveness and eternal life.

 

1.   Messiah came to earth to die for your sins. This means that on the cross Messiah took the judgment for all of your sins and now wants to rescue you from hell.

Isaiah 53:5-6, an Old Testament prophecy, says: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities (the Messiah died in your place – taking the judgment you deserved for sinning against God): the chastisement of our peace (peace before God – having a right relationship with God) was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed (you are healed spiritually by receiving forgiveness for all of your sins). All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his  own way (you have sinned against God); and the Lord hath laid on him (the Messiah) the iniquity of us all” (the sin and judgment that we deserved).

 

Isaiah 53:7
"He (the Messiah) was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter (Messiah's willingness to die for His own people), and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

 

Isaiah 53:12 adds these precious words:

“…and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many (the sin of His own Jewish brethren), and made intercession for the transgressors(died as the perfect sacrifice for the sinner).

 

Messiah died in your place, taking the wrath of God for your sins, so you could be forgiven and go free!

 

Psalm 22:14 – Old Testament Prophecy of Messiah on the Cross:

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint (Messiah's suffering): my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.”

 

Psalm 22:16 – Another Prophecy of Messiah on the Cross:

“For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet" (Messiah's crucifixion).

 

Psalm 22:17 – Another Prophecy of Messiah on the Cross:

“I may tell all my bones (Messiah's bones pressing against His shrunken skin): they look and stare upon me (Messiah shame on the cross).”

 

2.   Messiah rose from the dead to give you eternal life with Him forever. The prophecy declares this to be true.

 

Isaiah 53:10 “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him (the Messiah); he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin (Messiah’s death on the cross), he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days (Messiah’s resurrection), and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”

 

 Psalm 16:9-10 is an Old Testament Prophecy about Messiah’s resurrection: 

“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh (Messiah body) also shall rest in hope (of the resurrection). For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One (the Messiah) to see corruption" (the promise of Messiah’s resurrection).

 

3.   Messiah is now at God’s right hand.

 

     

 Psalm 110:1, a prophecy from the Old Testament, reveals:   

"The Lord (God the Father) said unto my Lord (the Messiah – God the Son), Sit thou at my right hand (the Father's right hand), until I make thine enemies thy footstool.”

 

 Psalm 16:11
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life (Messiah's resurrection): in thy presence (Messiah's ascension) is fulness of joy; at thy right hand (at the Father's right hand in Heaven) there are pleasures for evermore."

 

 

Jesus is at the right hand of the Father today. You should believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Who is eternal.

 

Psalm 90:2
"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."

You must also believe what the Bible reveals about the Messiah (God’s Son). Jesus ("Yahweh is salvation") is also eternal because He shares Yahweh's existence.  

 

Micah 5:2, a minor prophet of the Jewish Scriptures:

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”

 

4.   Messiah can forgive all your sins.

 

Micah 7:19, the Old Testament prophet, joyfully writes: “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us (the Jewish people); he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”

 

Zechariah 13:1, another Old Testament prophet, reveals this:

“In that day there shall be a fountain (spiritual cleansing) opened to the house of David (the Jewish people) and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.”

 

Zechariah 12:10 adds these solemn words:

“And I will pour upon the house of David (God's chosen people - the Jews), and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they (the Jewish people) shall look upon me whom they have pierced (the Messiah), and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”

 

These verses declare that only the Messiah can grant you cleansing and forgiveness of sins. If you will admit that you are a sinner and look to Him today, by expressing your faith in Him (the Messiah), you can find the peace that comes from having all your sins forgiven.     

 

5.   Messiah MUST be received or embraced as your personal Savior so you can receive forgiveness of sins and be delivered from God’s wrath (hell).

                    

 

Joel 2:32, the Old Testament prophet, reveals:   

 “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever (any Jewish person) shall call on the name of the  Lord (the Messiah) shall be delivered (delivered from sin’s judgment which is hell and given eternal life): for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.”

 

Important to Understand: Every Jew must call on the name of the Lord (express faith in Jesus the Messiah) in order to receive the forgiveness of sins, be delivered from God’s wrath (hell), and go to Heaven when he dies.

 

Your Decision: Will you by faith put all of your confidence and trust in the Messiah to grant you forgiveness of sins and deliver you from hell?

 

You can say the words of Isaiah 53 in your own heart while reading them and place your faith in the Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ).

 

Are you ready? Transfer your faith to the Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) right now. As you read Isaiah’s prophecy about Messiah’s salvation, you can make these words your own prayer, and receive Messiah’s salvation. 

 

A Jewish Prayer for Salvation and Peace

 

“But he (Messiah) was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Dear God, I BELIEVE what the prophecy says. You can give me spiritual healing and forgiveness for all my sins through the Messiah. You have made Messiah’s soul an offering for my sin, when Jesus died on the cross, but he (Messiah) shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days. I BELIEVE what the prophecy says. Jesus also rose from the dead to give me the free gift of eternal life in Heaven. Thank you Messiah, thank You Lord Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of all my sins, for saving me from hell, and giving me the free gift of eternal life. In Jesus’ name, Messiah’s name, Amen."

 

If you have placed your faith in the Messiah, who is Jesus Christ, you have now found peace, the peace that comes through forgiveness of all your sins and knowing that you are going to Heaven when you die. If you found this peace through the Messiah let me know. I can be reached at the website www.bereaninternetministry.org. Click on the “contacts” button.
