and Jews For Jesus
the article about the ecumenical root of the Messianic
For Jesus was shown to play an integral part. According to
Jacob Prasch's testimony, while being involved in drugs and
being saved in the company of cults, he stabilized when under
the teaching of Jews For Jesus.
I took LSD sacramentally, as a way to become involved with the
metaphysical world. I used psychedelic drugs extensively. And
I believed that the occult had to be investigated
scientifically...I began experimenting with drugs, a process
which soon graduated into an extensive research project. But I
would not believe what I could not prove... I met some Jesus
People, hippies who had gotten saved. ...I got saved through a
crazy group called The Children of God. Then I got involved
with some other crazy groups. I was a very unstable Christian
in the first few years, largely because of these unstable
groups I was in, virtually all of which became cults.
when I became involved with Jews for Jesus at a later point, I
stabilised. But that is another story. I met these Jesus
freaks and they began showing me things in the Bible..."
hotlinks to Jews for Jesus, which fully and openly supports
MJAA and the endorsement is reciprocated. Since his testimony
was posted on the revamped site of Moriel,
(Links Page) we believe that Jacob's support of Jews for Jesus
has not changed, nor his stated intention to establish
Messianic congregations. (About
Us). Jacob states he is against the ecumenical movement,
yet has consistently been part of it.
a critical review, William Greene wrote,
"...[Jew's for Jesus'] tactics are headstrong (sometimes
confrontational) and evangelistic in nature; they are most
famous for their "campaigns,"
during which they go out on the streets of major cities such
as New York and distribute millions of "broadsides"
(folded-over humorous tracts presenting the gospel in a Jewish
manner). They also work in airports; in 1987, they won a
unanimous Supreme Court decision protecting their First
Amendment rights to distribute literature in government-run
airports (the case was argued for JFJ by Jay Sekulow [CNP], who now
heads the American Center for Law and Justice [ACLJ] in
Virginia Beach, Virginia). [William Greene, Ascendance
of Messianic Judaism 12b]
should be noted that Jews for Jesus thankfully makes no
apology for their Christian stance and clear presentation of
Christ. They have also stood against the various errors found
within the Messianic and Hebrew Roots movements. In fact, many
in those movements reject Jews for Jesus for that reason. If
there is concern at all, it is for the ecumenical joining of
these various groups, with those who are against Christ.
For Jesus is strongly linked 12c
with ecumenical groups such as the Lausanne Consultation on
Jewish Evangelism (LCJE).12d
Tuvya Zaretsky is chairman of the LCJE and was in The
Liberated Wailing Wall, a musical team for Jews for Jesus. Mr.
Zaretsky was with Moishe Rosen when Jews for Jesus was
originally incorporated as Hineni Ministries. They were the
Los Angeles branch of the American Board of Missions to the
Jews (ABMJ). The ABMJ became Chosen People Ministries a few

Perlman, on the Board and staff of Jews for
Jesus, was moderator of a panel discussion while, Dr. Louis
Goldberg, of Jews for Jesus, and Dr. Mitch Glaser of Chosen
People Ministries, were speakers. Dr. Glaser’s teachings are
promoted on Arnold Fruchtenbaum's page under "Ariel
Friends" in the book catalog section. Another speaker
at LCJE also found on Ariel Friends listing is Dr. Barry
Newsletters from the 1970’s to early 80’s we were
surprised to find the sale of T-shirts in the “Materials to
Enjoy and Employ” with the words, “Jesus Made me
Kosher,” and “Goyim for Jesus.” Kosher can mean the broad statement of being acceptable to
God, and in this case was a message to non-believing Jews that
Jesus made them acceptable to God. However, for many in the
Messianic or Hebrew Roots movements, those who are suggesting that Jesus makes someone
Kosher is a
false premise. Many Messianics are in fact becoming kosher in what
they eat and do so according to Jewish tradition, not Biblical
wrote in 1 Timothy 4:3-6 "...and commanding to abstain
from meats, which God hath created to be received with
thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For
every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if
it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the
word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in
remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of
Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good
doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. "
2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Regarding being Biblically
also stated that while all things are clean that
are blessed by God, no soul is worth losing, over meat.
For those who believe eating or not eating certain meat is an
issue and the unclean/clean issues, the Apostle Paul
said to not hinder the gospel of Jesus Christ over that.
That needs to be the reason if one chooses to be
Biblically kosher. It's about Biblical obedience and putting
Romans 14:14 I know,
and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing
unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be
unclean, to him it is unclean.

strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to
15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now
walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat,
for whom Christ died.
16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but
righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is
acceptable to God, and approved of men.
19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make
for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things
indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with
21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine,
nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended,
or is made weak.
2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his
good to edification.
1 Corinthians 8:8
But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat,
are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of
yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak... 12
But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their
weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I
will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my
brother to offend.
While the ads for the T-shirts are for witnessing
to Jewish people—there is no explanation provided as to what
non-believing Jews believe the derogatory word “goyim,“ or “goi”
means to them. Part
of what goyim means and has meant in the Talmud is that it is
a term, “mostly applied to non-Jews, or idolators...
Jewish books which treat of Idolatry, worshippers of idols are
often called by this single word Goi.” 12 See:

Prasch and other ministries ring true about being against
ecumenicism, why do we find Jacob, alongside those involved in
the ecumenical ‘Lausanne’
and the LCJE? Ariel and Chosen People are listed foremost
on Jacob Prasch’s endorsed Links followed by Jews For Jesus.

J. Stanford’s excellent article on “Messianic
Judaism” is a reasoned response to Arnold
Fruchtenbaum’s book, Hebrew Christianity, which
identifies as well the errors of the Charismatic and
the doctrinal divisions of the Word of truth are taken for
granted, as with most dispensationalists today, a
theological vacuum occurs. Another, more serious, cause of
this vacuum is a result of efforts to blur, if not
obliterate, the doctrinal distinction between Israel and the
Church, Law and Grace.
vacuum is naturally filled on the left by the
non-dispensational Charismatic element, and on the right by
the anti-dispensational Covenant movement.
to its lack of dispensational protection, the Messianic Jew
movement in the States has fallen prey to both of these
detrimental factors--tongues, and law. The entire movement
is based upon the latter--the legal aspect of the Word. The
charismatic integration is mainly due to the Jews for Jesus
of this common denominator of nondispensational error, it is
no surprise that the Messianic Movement is deeply involved
with the World Ecumenical Movement and many other deceptions.
Sincere believers are being snared because of not having the
Biblical foundations to discern what is being pushed forward. It
should be noted that many do not realize the ecumenical goals
of the various groups, but rather join because for many, there
is strength in numbers, but many also assume that what they
are joining with is Biblically sound, because other
'Believers' are involved.

Recalling our previous articles, Joint

speakers for the conference sponsored by The
Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA). The Messiah'99
Conference was no small event displaying all the symbolism
discussed in the
Hebrew Roots series in evidence, and could not have gone
unnoticed, as Mr. Prasch also linked to the Messianic Jewish
Alliance of Australia until only a few months prior to the

"original context of the Bible" is the phraseology
used by promoters of the "Fourth wave" or Hebrew
Roots Movement. It is no different than the phrase,
"getting back to our Jewish or Hebrew roots." The
intent is that we're missing the "true" meaning of
the Scriptures without their scholarly "new/old"
is the Holy Spirit that leads us into all truth, and neither
He, nor the Bible have changed in their intent and meaning.

CNP, which unites
evangelicals, catholics, mormons, moonies, kkk, nazi's and so
on, does it not
seem strange to see involvement of Arnold Fruchtenbaum with
separate e-mailings by Peter Michas and Uri Marcus, the
information was circulated that Musalaha, “an organization
in Bethlehem (which is Palestinian controlled)” has
“Arnold Fruchtenbaum (Ariel) and Susan Perlman (Jews for
Jesus) as advisors on the board.” According to them,
Musalaha means "Christian Muslim", although Musalaha
actually means reconciliation in Arabic. Its
leader, Salim Munayer is reportedly "a proponent of
Palestine, and academic dean at the Bethlehem Bible College,
an Arab evangelical Bible school." 14
Arnold Fruchtenbaum informed an associate that, "... I do
not sit on either the Board of Directors or Board of Advisors
of Musalaha. I have been a guest speaker there (as I have been
at many other places), and I have written articles (two, I
believe) for the periodical, just as I write articles for many
other periodicals. But I have no actual formal relationship
with Musalaha and have certainly never been on their Board of
Advisors. They have never asked me for my advice about
anything and, if they had, I would advise them all to
become pro-Israel Dispensationalists. My only involvement with
them so far has been as a guest speaker and a guest writer. I
suspect that is where the confusion has set in..." 15
Embrace Israel Ministries and other Reconciliation groups 15b,
claim that Musalaha is based in Jerusalem, not Bethlehem, with goals of
reconciliation between Arab and Jewish Believers.16 This
incentive of reconciliation between ‘Arab and Jew’
believers is actually found listed in the goals of “The
Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE)”
The work for reconciliation
between non-believers is a tough goal and an admirable one.
However, what many people
fail to recall is that there is no reconciliation needed between
true believers— regardless of cultural
background. Nor are there any excuses provided in the
Scriptures for hatred towards others, cultural, ethnic or
otherwise. 1 John
saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in
darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth
in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in
him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and
walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth,
because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
has warned that the ecumenical movement, charismania and
hyper pentecostalism, liberal theology, and word-faith
deception are all preludes leading up to and helping set
the stage for this mass backsliding” 17
look to leaders for clear, unmixed signals. Instead today
they are getting mixed signals only compounding the
warnings are real, how come Jacob Prasch is immersed with people
or groups who are part of the ecumenical movement, knowingly
or otherwise? In
fact, as shown in the Update:
Jacob Prasch & Moriel
Revisited, Jacob has recently removed himself from ecumenical organizations
he initially either denied being a part of, or refused to
answer questions concerning his involvement in said ecumenical
Why would "Discernment" or 'Christian' ministries
align with such as these? Indeed, how can two walk together
except they be agreed?
We shall see
whether Jacob Prasch is a man of his published word. Jacob
Prasch has declared:
turned down TV programs offered to me in both America and
Britain because I would not associate with heresy…. The day
I compromise biblical truth to get a platform is the day there
is no further point in me even having a platform as far as God
is concerned.” 18
is proven Biblically false --they are still false, no matter
whom they rub elbows with and call "friend." If
someone is a false teacher or false prophet we are under no
circumstances to remain aligned with or under their influence.
We are certainly not to promote them or their supporters as
good or having Discernment and worthy of our support.
Thessalonians 3:6 " Now we command you,
brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye
withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh
disorderly, and not after the traditions which he
received of us."
Watson stated Charles Spurgeon was right when he said,
I might not stultify my testimony, I have cut myself clear of
those who err from the faith, and even from those who
associate with them"
when we have chosen our way can we keep company with those who
go the other way. There must come with the decision for
truth a corresponding protest against error." 19
