Wayne Wilks that came 1:55 out of Shady Grove Church is where 1:57 Gateway came out of and that’s one of 1:59 our campuses now it’s all of us coming 2:02 together was that they did said the 2:04 Messier Jewish Bible Institute that was 2:06 initiative actually we at tikkun we were 2:08 part of that travel yeah and Jonathan 2:10 bernis a Jewish voice and this there was 2:12 a revival in the 90s in the former 2:15 Soviet Union but we had no in scores of 2:19 Jewish people came to faith but there 2:20 were not leaders to pastor them so you 2:23 guys are we started the messengers Bible 2:26 Institute but now it’s evolving into 2:29 something different yeah yeah and it’s 2:31 evolving into where we bring that under 2:34 that but we also want to be able to 2:36 somehow be a gathering for Messianic 2:39 Jewish ministries and a teaching place 2:42 for Gentile churches to be able to 2:45 understand that God has a purpose for 2:47 Israel and that God loves his people 2:50 and I think that we can come together 2:52 under that banner and you know we’ve 2:55 seen more Jewish people accept Messiah 2:57 in the last generation than we have in 2:59 the previous 2,000 years so I think this 3:01 is just gonna be one more gathering 3:04 place for what God wants to do you know 3:06 there are pastors all over the world 3:08 they may be they like Israel that but 3:11 they’ve got other things that are more 3:13 important and it makes them a little 3:15 uncomfortable when someone like you were 3:18 saying no you got to get behind theirs I 3:19 got a bless Israel what would you say to 3:21 pastors out there who don’t really have 3:23 what I would call the Romans 11 mystery 3:27 revelation what would you share with 3:28 them well I would say really to open be 3:32 open minded to the scripture I was 3:34 taught replacement theology 3:36 in Bible College and I didn’t know any 3:39 different and it wasn’t until Wayne 3:41 Wilks at Shady Grove and an elders 3:43 meeting begin to take scripture by 3:46 scripture to show us that God still had 3:49 a place in his heart and a plan for the 3:52 nation of Israel and for the children of 3:54 Israel and once you see it in Scripture 3:56 it changes everything and just a while 3:59 back I was with some of the one of the 4:03 largest churches in the world and they 4:05 have multiple campuses all over the 4:07 world and the senior pastor said to me 4:09 what’s the most important thing that you 4:12 could share with us and I just 4:14 immediately I said take the gospel to 4:17 the Jew first Romans 1:16 I’m not 4:19 ashamed of the golf sports the power of 4:21 God in salvation and everyone who 4:22 believes and that’s where many pastors 4:24 stop but it says very clearly to the Jew 4:26 first to the Jew first so we don’t take 4:28 the gospel of gateway to the Jew only 4:30 what we do to the chief first and I 4:33 believe it’s like typing when you give 4:35 the first 10% to God the rest is blessed 4:38 I believe our missions efforts when 4:40 we’ve given the first of our missions 4:42 efforts to the nation of Israel into the 4:44 Jewish people than the rest are blessed 4:46 you know if God TV our three main points 4:49 are Souls Israel and revival yes sir 4:54 si R and you know I was in Israel in our 4:57 CEO or Simpson who’s sitting off-camera 5:00 stood in front of a bunch of Jewish 5:02 people and he said you know whether God 5:03 TV we are never ever going to shy away 5:06 from preaching the gospel but part of 5:09 that for us is standing forever with the 5:11 State of Israel and I continue that 5:13 provoke them to jealousy they were 5:15 hugging him afterwards now as a Jewish 5:18 believer I said that they would throw me 5:19 out but they loved him it was really 5:21 really amazing that’s wonderful pastor 5:24 Robert thank you so much for spending 5:25 time with us and you can see pastor 5:28 Robert on God TV and we’re gonna put 5:30 some information on the screen so you 5:31 can learn more about the Gateway Center 5:33 for Israel thank you so much thanks Ron 5:35 great so you have bless you 5:38 [Music] 5:41 [Applause] 5:42 [Music] 5:52 [Applause]
