Welcome to 
Messianic Messages 
a ministry devoted to teaching the predominantly Gentile Church about her Jewish heritage and to instilling a love and concern for the land and the people of Israel through the scripture of Israel.

A Jewish Ministry to the Gentile Church

I am talking to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to jealousy and save some of them. (Romans 11:13-14)
For over two decades, Messianic Messages has brought Jewish light to the Gentile church; through teaching Messiah in the Feasts of the L-rd, the Jewish roots of Christianity, and the significance of the Torah to the Church. buy or trade cryptocurrency Cameroon 2020

Marty Cohen, the principal teacher of Messianic Messages, is a Jewish man. Like Jewish men have for centuries, he sought a relationship with the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And, like thousands of Jewish men and women have, he found that relationship through a personal relationship with the promised Messiah of Israel—Y’shua Ha Moshiach, Jesus the Messiah.

Since 1984, Marty has shared the Jewish roots of Christianity with Churches, Sunday School classes, and Home Fellowship groups across America and beyond. Revealing the Messiah in the Feast of Passover over 250 times, Marty eloquently sheds bright Jewish light on difficult to understand passages of scripture from both the Old & the New Testaments of G-d’s Holy Word.
Through insightful teaching about the Feasts of the L-rd, Messianic Messages will inspire your congregation to "provoke Israel to jealousy" in new and fascinating ways. You will gain a new or renewed fervor to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and to bless the people and the nation of Israel.

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem...
For the sake of the House of the L-rd our G-d."
(Psalms 122: 6, 9)

For sixteen hundred years, the Church has ignored the so-called "Jewish Holidays" --thinking them "not for us", or made obsolete by the coming of Y’shua. However, the Messiah Himself said, "Do not think that I have come to abolish Torah...I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or the stroke of a pen shall pass from Torah." bitcoin trading apps Cameroon 2020 (Matthew 5:17 Jewish New Testament). Reading in that Torah, so highly revered by Y’shua, Leviticus 23 records G-d speaking of the festivals as "My appointed times are these..." (Leviticus 23:2).

In addition to the benefits promised to obedient Israel, Isaiah 56 is just one passage that reveals specific promises to "the foreigner that joins himself to the L-rd." The Feasts of the L-rd are for all of G-d’s people. Most of the Church has been robbed of very specific blessings and of much Biblical understanding because of this lack of "Feast mentality".

How profound are the Words found in Psalm 89:15, particularly in the Amplified Bible translation: "Blessed--happy, fortunate [to be envied]-- are the people who know the joyful sound [who understand the spiritual blessings symbolized by the Feasts]; they walk, O L-rd, in the light and the favor of Your countenance." Understanding the Biblical Feasts of the L-rdand their significance for the Church today is the key to provoking Israel to jealousy according to Romans 11.

Based in Scripture

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of G-d for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. (Romans 1:16)
He said to me, "You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will display my splendor." ...He says: "It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."      (Isaiah 49:3 & 6)

I ask: ‘Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all!’ Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. (Romans 11:11)
Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called "uncircumcised" by those who call themselves "the circumcision" (that done in the body by the hands of men)-- remember that at that time you were separate from Messiah, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without G-d in the world.  But now in Messiah Yeshua you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Messiah. (Ephesians 2:11-13)

I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn G-dlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for G-d's gifts and his call are irrevocable. (Romans 11:25-29) buy or trade cryptocurrency Cameroon tron 2020
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with G-d's people and members of G-d's household. (Ephesians 2:18-19)

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-19)
