Jewish Teacher becomes a Student of Yeshua!

When I was nine years old, we moved to the United States
from Jerusalem, and the number one song in
the country was Anne Murray, “One Day at a Time,
Sweet Jesus.” And I’ll never forget, my mom comes into the car
and I’m like, ♪ One day at a time,
sweet Jesus ♪ My mom says,
“What did you say?” And I said,
“I’m singing the song.” She’s like, “We don’t say Jesus.” But why? In Hebrew she says, “He’s Yeshu.” I grew up not being able
to say that name. My son at the age of five was
diagnosed with Asperger’s. He was not verbal,
he was very distant. He was the cause of me
going back to school and becoming a
special education teacher. I knew a lot about science. I studied a lot
about everything. But I really never even
opened the Bible. Ironically, I was teaching
Hebrew school as a side job. Teaching the prayers,
teaching the liturgy. I mean, I knew everything. I had seen my father pray the
prayers and put on the tallit, and I know all of the
rhetoric and everything that, you know, goes along
with being Jewish, but I didn’t feel
any connection to God. I would sit at synagogue and I’d try to feel something,
I’d try to feel God. And it was like the Chagall
stained glass windows and everybody around me,
and the bema, and the arc, and the Torah being taken out. And I felt,
I remember feeling nothing. At my school I worked at
an after school program and there was a woman that
had written a book called “Jesus, Can I Talk to You?” So she said to me, “I don’t
have a money to hire an editor, “would you help me edit my book?” And I said, “Well, I don’t
know anything about Jesus.” I do know about writing,
I know about English, I know about commas, I
know about semicolons, I just don’t know
anything about Jesus. It was a lot of stuff
from the Old Testament. And I would see things
like, you know, this is from Ecclesiastes or
this from Samuel or Kings, and I was like,
these are our books. This came from
the Jewish Bible. I’ve never read the Bible. I read about the fact
that He would be pierced, and that’s exactly
what happened to Jesus, and for the first time the
Bible came alive to me. And it’s Isaiah 53 and I
said, how can you miss this? It’s like right there, it’s
right there in the scripture, in our book. Saying the prayer and asking
for him to come into my life and I accepted Him as my Savior. Even though I just became a
believer in the Jewish Messiah but in Jesus whose name
I can’t even say at the private Jewish school. Wow, this is too weird. The grandson of the head
of our Judaic program, in the first year
that he was there he would talk to me
and I would say, “Oh it’s time
to go to tefillah.” Students were required
to go to prayer and you must go to tefillah. He’s like, “I hate tefillah.” I’m like, “Your grandfather’s
the head of Judaic program “of the school.” And so he comes up and he
puts a kippah on my head and he is like,
“You’re like a rabbi.” ‘Cause rabbi in Hebrew
means teacher. He goes, “I can just see it, “one day you’re gonna
become a Hasidic.” And I said,
“No no no, Joshua.” Totally the furthest
thing I’m going to become. Turns to me and goes,
“I don’t understand you. “Do you keep Shabbat? “What kind of a Jew are you?” What do you mean
what kind of a Jew am I? And he goes, “There’s
something different about you. “I don’t know what it is, “there’s something
different about you.” And I said,
“Joshua, sit down. “I really respect you
and I’m gonna tell you “what’s different about me is “that I believe that
Jesus is the Messiah.” And his eyes got wide and he
stood up and he pointed at me, he’s like, “I knew it, I knew it. “You’re always talking
about love and stuff.” And the students know,
they know. I can talk about God all day. See, I couldn’t do that
in public shool. Public school,
you can’t talk about God. But at a private Jewish school, I could talk about God all day. And you know,
sometimes they’ll go, they test me and sometimes
they get really close and they really question
what am I really saying. But if they ever come to me and say, “What do you really believe?” Like Joshua does, or did, I would tell them. I believe that
Jesus is my Messiah. Coming out of the
Messianic closet, that’s pretty much a
good way to put this. I’ve gone completely
against the grain. When you go against the
grain, you get splinters. It’s not easy. It’s not been an easy path for me, especially knowing what I
know and hearing what I hear, how the rabbis talk about Him,
how the students mock Him. And I say, okay, I’m here for you. I wanna stay here. And people ask me,
“Aren’t you afraid “if they find out at your school “that you believe that
Jesus is the Messiah “that you’ll get fired?” So? God will always provide,
he has through everything, and He always delivers. He took it on
the cross for me. Jesus died so that I
can be born again. The greatest pain is to
give up your own child. How much God must have loved us to give up his only Son for us?

  1. Amen! Amen! Amen!
    Wow! I love these…I will keep saying this, until people realize, like this beautiful lady and others (including myself)…hear, actually HEAR…the GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST!
    Another wonderful testimony!
    Thank you!
    I’m blessed because we are all blessed…by hearing testimonies!
    Joy, this is joy! Amen 🙏🏼🥰☺️🥰☺️

  2. I love you. Thank you, our great God and Savior. Can't wait for heaven, well, maybe to get more to know Him, first. Please pray for me. I want to win Jews, Muslims, Catholics, every nation, religion, all to Him. Pray He will open hearts to His word. This is a great opportunity to witness for Him. Pray for the filling of the Holy Spirit. Allow Him to have complete control in your life, hold back nothing and watch Him work miracles in others lives, as well as yours. Speak (write) the truth in love. Be careful, your friends and families will not understand. Pray for others. Pray His words like: Jesus thank you for being my good shepherd, thank you I have no needs but you, thank you that you lead me beside still waters, thank you that you restore my soul, and worship Him. You will be filled to overflowing.

  3. 12 Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— 13 unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
    2cort 3:12-17


  4. I’m still crying. Beautiful testimony! Isaiah 53 is what draws ALL Jews to Christ. My prayer for all my Jewish brothers and sisters in Christ is to bring them back to the fold.

  5. BTW.. How can it be a real sacrifice if Jesus knew in advance that he would only be dead for three days and then receive a promotion in Heaven?

  6. Ask a Jewish priest how to pronounce Joshua the right way. Remind them that "Joshua" was an English Christian invention, but that was not his Hebrew name. This, in chess, is called a fork. Thank you JESUS CHRIST for this wisdom. Everytime they speak of Moses and Joshua they either have to say Joshua the English, CHRISTian way or say Yeshua the same pronunciation of The NAME above every name of YESHUA GOD ALMIGHTY.

  7. Love these testimonies! They make me cry because of my love for the Jewish people. Imagine YESHUA! His people are opening their eyes and hearts…the scales are falling off; the veil is being lifted, HALLELUJAH! Let's continue to 🙏 for the Jewish people!!! Thank you Lord for your unfailing love and mercies which are new every morning!

  8. Isaiah 53 has been taken out of context if you don't know what Isaiah 52, 51, you want to know what's happening in chapter 53. the first question that you should be asking who is speaking in chapter 53 first of all is not even Isaiah and it's not even God you need to be previous chapters and you will see who is saying this this is why when you speak to Judaism they say these Jews will tell you that Christianity has taken Isaiah 53 out of context

  9. Isaiah 53,
    19 Psalms
    7 Isaiah virgen birth
    118 Psalms the Messiah Victorious return….!
    "God's Word dedicated to my Jewish people first and then to the Gentiles" the Appostile Paul

  10. What a beautiful testimony! Shalom from Israel! Believing in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, is the MOST JEWISH thing a Jew can do!

  11. What a beautiful conversion testimony, it brings tears to ones eyes, very moving. It is so overpowering to hear a Jewish conversion to Jesus Christ, they have so much history ingrained into them to prevent conversion. She is one beautiful soul, and look how a male mentor, she thought a lot of, kept pushing her about how she expressed so much love, how do you do this, she made sit and confessed her faith in Jesus the Messiah, wow, amazing story. It blew him away, I am sure.

  12. This testimonies are inspired by the power and love of God is beautiful to hear one more chosen child finds the Lord.

  13. Wow, praise God
    Please pray for Israel my father HOLY Land is your father too ma'am
    I'm reading my bible kjv

  14. I love your videos…they are so encouraging to me. I love to hear the testimonies of the Lord's ancient people, completed in Christ, and am grateful that the Lord has extended grace to the gentile people through Jesus and Jesus alone. The Lord fulfills all His promises, in His good and perfect timing, for His good and perfect purposes, to His glory, for He is faithful to Himself. I pray for the Lord's protection over your ministry, over you and your families, as you boldly proclaim the life-saving, life-changing Gospel of Jesus the Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.

  15. First time I heard a woman rabbi talk and she made me cry of joy. I'm a practicing Catholic, but you guys really give me inspiration for my Christian faith.


  17. Hoping someday their would be a gathering of Jews and like to hear their live Testimonies and worshipping God Yeshua the Messiah,praying and singing Halleluiah to the Lord.😊😊😊

  18. With a perfect Faith I believe what you have said. I am a non Jew but this Jewish Messiah changed my life at 17years of age as a poor English boy in the U.K. I am now 67 and I love Israel and I love Jesus. Thank you for your faith in The God of Israel. X

  19. Amazing story! I’m an American and I dated an sweet and beautiful Israeli girl for a year. I’ve been to Yisrael twice for a total of 8 weeks. I love Israel and the Jewish nation. You put it perfectly when you said it’s in plain sight to see Yahshuah in the Old Testament! Yahweh bless you!

  20. Israel will have the remnant declare in and around the years 2027-2028 AD……"blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." And he shall descend with the shout of the archangel…at the last 7th trumpet….and so shall Israel be saved….the crucified one( like Joseph thousands of years before sold to slavery and thought accursed and dead but turns out to be the very one who the brothers had sold to slavery to Egypt , who is the one who saved the brothers of Israel from certain famine…) Jesus Christ the ressurected one will return to receive the remnant of Israel…true bloodline jewish people calling upon the crucified , ressurected, and ascended….and soon to return in glory from the clouds of Heaven in one great grand finale….to bring the kingdom of Heaven to the earth….this Jesus Yahoshua Meshiach Christ……crucified, risen, and ascended and glorified and returning in that glory to this planet in 2028 AD.

    He told his prophet Daniel while Daniel was in exile in between the years 597 BC- 490 BC in babylon….it is recorded in the vision of the 2300 years in chapter 8 that began in the year 272 BC when Ptolemy II Philadelphus invaded Jerusalem after winning the 1st Syrian War against Seleucus that year 272 BC….this is the vision Daniel sees in chapter 8 that ends in the year 2028 AD……Also Daniel 12:11-13 ends exactly in the same year 2028 AD…..proof…597 BC daily sacrifice taken away from temple mount by Nebuchadnezzar II + 1290 years= 692 AD( the Dome of the Rock of Islam denies Jesus Christ as being son of GOD the most High) ….thus it is the abomination that causes desolation that year + remaining 1335 years= the end….the glorious return of the messiah…..2028 AD….same end year as in Daniel 8.

  21. Praise Jesus!🙌🏻✝️
    Beautiful testimony!!!✡️
    Christ Crucified
    Christ Risen
    Christ Jesus is coming again!

  22. Jesus is the only name in history to hold AUTHORITY. People always have a reaction. Mostly negative, his named is usually said in blasphemy. That’s how we know He is God.

  23. HALLELUJAH Father and thank You Jesus!!!! You are our Lord and Savior without You we are nothing. Thank you Sister In Christ for your testimony, I'm so glad you didn't fight The Holy Spirit. Be blessed

  24. What a beautiful testimony from a beautiful woman, even though I'm a gentile i can relate to her saying she went against the grain, i was brought up in a very strict Catholic family, one of my brothers is a priest and one sister is a nun, when i got saved in my 20s i tried to explain to my family and the parish priest and was shocked at their reaction, it was as if I'd just murdered someone, i thank the Lord every day for my salvation and when i hear a beautiful testimony like this Jewish woman coming to the Lord.

  25. Your testimony for Yeshua strengthens my soul and soothes my heart. May God continue to strengthen and bless you and your family as you unashamedly and uncompromisingly stand up for Him leading others to the grace and reality of His Sacrifice.

  26. WOW!!!! I have been in awe of all the BROTHERS AND SISTERS Who are watching this. When I was in Israel recording it was so surreal and now I am sobbing tears of joy reading what all of you have shared – THANK YOU THANK YOU IN YESHUA's NAME I am honored to meet you – the members of the WAY and the TRUTH – I am ALIVE through YESHUA – the name means the Savior

  27. Being in Messianic synagogue, I felt the Holy Spirit in worshipping during the prayers. There is such a difference.

  28. Thank you for your wonderful testimony. I know the Lord will bless you and others as you remain faithful to Him.He loves you so much.In the mighty name of Yeshua. Amen.

  29. Titles of Jesus (PBUH) in Christianity

    1. "Slave of Allah" עֶֽבֶד הָאֱלֹהִ֛ים eḇeḏ-hā’ĕlōhîm (Slave/Servant of Isaiah 53)

    2. "Muslim" משלם "One who Submit" to G-d. (Hebrew 5:9 = Perfect)

  30. I love this channel..
    You prompt me to worship Lord Jesus Christ and thank God for the love I so needed. God bless you ❤

  31. We couldn't see the extent of "IT IS FINISHED" the earth quaked the rock split at the foot of the Cross, Yeshua's blood was released by the Roman soldier who pierced his side. While Six hundred years earlier The Ark of the Covenant was moved.. Solomon prepared for its hiding and Jeremiah moved it precisely under the cross yet future! GOLGOTHA.

    THE WITNESS OF THE BLOOD IN THE STARS.. REVELATION 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    The Rabbi's keep the tablets of stone and His blood (testimony) found on the mercy seat!

    I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourn for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

    ENMITY exists now the solution is the Fathers witness!

    1 John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believe on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believe not God hath made him a liar; because he believe not the record that God gave of his Son. Rabbi Chaim Richman 3 minutes 56 minutes

    For it is by His grace we are rescued, through faith; and this is not of yourselves, but it is the gift of Elohim. (when opened). 9. Not of works, or else anyone glory (in themselves). 10. For we are His creation who are created in Y'shua the Mashiyach for good works which Elohim has before prepared for us to walk in. 11. Wherefore be mindful that you formerly were carnal Gentiles; and you were called the uncircumcision by that which is called the circumcision of which is the work of the hands in the flesh. 12. And you were, at that time, without the Mashiyach; and were aliens from the Devarim of Israel; and strangers to the covenant of the promise; and were without hope and without Elohim in the world. 13. But now, by Y'shua the Mashiyach, you who before were afar off, have been brought near by the Blood of the Mashiyach. 14. He is Himself our peace, who has
    made the two (become) ONE <– NO ONE TEACHES THIS !!
    and has demolished the Wall which stood in the midst, and the Enmity, by his flesh. 15. And in his flesh (the) enmity and regulations of commands (contained) in his commandments are ABOLISHED that in himself he might make the two into ONE, establishing peace. 16. And has reconciled BOTH with Elohim in one body and has slain the enmity by his stake(of execution). 31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: 33 but this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

    THE VEIL. Second Corinthians 3:6-18 Who has fitted us to be ministers of the renewed covenant, not in the letter, but in the spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7. Now if the ministration of death was engraved upon stones in writing, and was so glorious that the children of Israel could not look at the face of Moshe on account of the glory upon his face which vanished away; 8. How then will not the ministration of the Spirit be still be more glorious? 9. For if there was glory in the ministration of condemnation, how much more will the ministration of righteousness excel in glory? 10. For that which was glorious was as if not glorious in comparison with this which excels in glory. 11.For if that (condemnation) WHICH IS ABOLISHED was glorious, much more must, that which abides be glorious! 12. Seeing therefore we have THIS HOPE, we the more speak with boldness 13. And are not like Moshe, who threw the veil over his face that the children of Israel might not behold the termination of that (condemnation)which was ABOLISHED! 14. But they were blinded in their understanding because until this day, when the ancient Covenant is read, the same veil rests upon them; NOR IS IT MANIFEST (to them), that it (condemnation) is ABOLISHED by the Mashiyach. 15. And to this day, when Moshe is read, a veil is thrown upon their hearts. 16. But when any of them is turned to master YHWH, is the veil taken from him. 17. Now Master YHWH Himself is the Spirit. And where the Spirit of Master YHWH is, there is freedom. 18. And we all, with uncovered faces, behold as in a mirror the glory of Master YHWH ; and are transformed into the same likeness, from glory to glory, as by Master YHWH the SPIRIT!

    Scripture reference regarding the Ark finding.

    I did meet with the archeologist Vendyl Jones in 1983. His person was modeled in the Harrison Ford character. (endy) He at that time believed he had found Zadok's tomb. He was given use of the copper scroll, which was an impression map and located many hidden temple treasures. According to Vendyl the Israelis wouldn't let him go after the Ark and he knew it's location was shown on the copper scroll. Vendyl was the second archeologist to confirm the Arks location.

  32. When you go against the grain you will get some splinters. What a great quote! Wonderful testimony! Thank you for sharing!

  33. Glory be to The Most High! HalleluYah!! Yeshua is Messiah. May our Heavenly Father keep saving Israel. Testimonies like these fill my heart with so much joy. Shalom. Israel you are in my prayers.

  34. Wow!Amazing Testimony!
    TRULY, JESUS is the Messiah, the SON OF THE LIVING GOD!(Matthew 16:16)
    and That at the Name of JESUS,
    Every knee should bow…,and every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord to the glory of GOD the FATHER!(Philippians 2:10-11)
    Amen. 💖

  35. I am becoming disappointed. You ask, "How could you be disappointed after watching such a wonderful testimony?" I have been fighting the good fight to lead lost Jews to their Savior, and I have not heard one word of encouragement from one of their Messianic brothers. What is going on that you can not say one word of encouragement to me. Do you not love me because I am a gentile believer? I need more than just your encouragement though, I need your prayers and support to teach me how to reach your lost kinsmen. I love you and pray for you to be filled with all the fullness of God. ( I hope you did not think by support, I meant your money. I know most did not, but some might. I forgive you if you did, but I pray that God would give you the ability to discern ones heart.) I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I have drawn you. He has put that love in my heart for all.
