Subject: Bjoern, Rabbi Schneerson VS. Yeshua Billboads across Israel
I have visited many of the Lubavitch Yeshivas, though Beit Levi Yitzhak is the largest in Israel with 400 students, located in the Sefad. It is known as one of Israel’s Holy cities centering on Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah. It was just after 7am, when I arrived to meet with these amazing young men who study Torah and Talmud 13.5 hours each day. Do you know any Christians who study Scripture that many hours a day?
I walked down another flight of stairs and as I turned the corner I heard the voices of about 20 young Israeli men dancing and clapping joyously in the hallway as they sang a song proclaiming Rebbe Schneerson – “King Messiah of Israel.”
These young Jewish men love studying the Tanakh (Bible) and other rabbinical scriptures.
Yoni who was sitting next to me exclaimed, “Everyone in this Yeshiva believes that the Rebbe is the Messiah. He is the one who will be coming back to bring Redemption for the Jewish people!”
I questioned the young men at the table about Rebbe Schneerson fulfilling all of the Messianic prophecies. I asked, “What prophecies foretold by our Jewish Prophets in the Bible did the Rebbe fulfill? Herschel exclaimed, “He is King Messiah, he is from the line of King David!”
When I asked them what other prophecies Rebbe Schneerson fulfilled, they said that they did not know of any other Messianic prophecies in the Bible. I explained to them that the Messiah had to come riding into Jerusalem on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9), that Messiah was born a miraculous birth (Isaiah 7:14), that Messiah was born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2), that Messiah had to fulfill the time period when he had to be killed (Daniel 9:24-26), and I briefly explained that there are about 30 other prophecies that Messiah had to fulfill besides just coming from the lineage of King David.
And when I asked them what proof they had that Rebbe Schneerson was from the line of King David, one of them quickly responded, “We don’t need proof, this is our tradition and this is what we believe, because it is true!”
History of Lubavitch and the Rebbe Schneerson
Chabad Lubavitch was founded by Rabbi Zalman in the 18th century and today it is the largest sect within Chasidic Judaism. It is rapidly growing in the United States, Canada, the Former Soviet Union, Europe and Israel.
Lubavitch leadership has always been passed down through the family; and the last Rebbe (head rabbi) in the dynasty was Rebbe Menachem Schneerson.
Rebbe Schneerson did not appoint a successor to the Lubavitch dynasty so after his death many of his followers proclaimed him Messiah, King of Israel!
There were about 200,000 Lubavitchers in 1993 when Schneerson died. However, since his death and the proclamation of him being the Messiah, it is estimated that there are now more than 600,000 Lubavitchers and 4000 emissaries/rabbis.
There are 3,300 Lubavitch institutions around the world in 70 countries. They have expanded their outreach on more than 150 university and college campuses worldwide and they distribute literature proclaiming that Rebbe Schneerson is the Messiah.
In many Orthodox and even secular homes throughout Israel you will see portraits or posters of the Rebbe Schneerson. None of my Orthodox Jewish family members are Lubavitchers, however in most of their homes you will see the face of the Rebbe Schneerson on fridge magnets, or a portrait hanging in the dining room or living room.
At Israel’s Ben Gurion airport, the largest billboard is of Rabbi Schneerson with a slogan stating that he is Israel’s King Messiah. And throughout the Holy Land on bus shelters, highways, and buildings there are either billboards or posters proclaiming him as King Messiah of Israel! (see billboard photo on page 2)
I then met Shmuel who also said to me, “Zev you should read Rabbi Schneerson’s writings and you will see that he is the Messiah! You will find peace that you have never had, and all the questions about God and life will be answered.” You will also see all of the Rebbe’s wisdom and realize that he is the long awaited Messiah, and he is alive!”
Lubavitchers are appreciated by most Israelis because they provide aid to the homeless and the sick; they help victims of suicide bombings, provide help to new immigrants, and sponsor summer camps and education for the underprivileged.
|“Our job is to do mitzvot (good deeds). This will usher in the coming of Messiah. Some Lubavitchers outside of Israel do not believe that he is the Rebbe but most of us here in Israel believe he is, and by us doing good deeds, it will usher the Rebbe Schneerson’s return and the Redemption of mankind,” said Shmuel.
More than 200 years ago, before “the modern state” of Israel was birthed in 1948, The Lubavitch sect set up its first community in the Holy Land. Today there are hundreds of Chabad-Lubavitch day schools, high schools, synagogues and yeshivas.
“The Rebbe has my heart and my soul. He is my leader, he is King Messiah of Israel,” Devorah said firmly.
|I asked Devorah, who attended the girls yeshiva, saying, “The ultimate thing in life is to have a relationship with God, and sin separates us from God, so what does the Rebbe do to help you get rid of your sins?”
“The Rebbe’s teachings help me to be a better person which guides me, to not sin as much. And if I don’t achieve a pure soul in this life, then I will come back again and again until my soul is purified and I will then go to heaven to be with God our Father. Even Rebbe Schneerson was reincarnated, but he eventually had a pure soul and soon he will resurrect and come back for the Final Redemption,” Devorah said.
“The Rebbe is our King Messiah and to believe in the Rebbe is to have life.”
Bjoern, as you can see many people in Israel are being deceived by believing that Rebbe Schneerson is the Messiah! They are entrapped by reading his books and believing that he will bring them redemption.
Are you willing to tell them about Yeshua?
I asked all of these young people if they would be willing to read a Tanakh (Jewish Bible) that explains the Messianic prophecies. Almost all of them said that they would be willing to take a look at the Messianic Prophecy Bible.
With your help we can show them Yeshua who came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9); Yeshua who was born a miraculous birth (Isaiah 7:14); Yeshua who was born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2); and Yeshua who fulfilled the time period when the Messiah had to be cut off (Daniel 9:24-26); plus many other prophecies!
|Please make the best gift you can today so we can give Lubavitchers and Jewish people everywhere a copy of the Messianic Prophecy Bible.
Bjoern, also pray for our ministry, as everyday our Israeli Evangelists are sharing the Gospel of Yeshua here in Israel.
