Evangelism campaigns are a powerful tool for reaching Jewish people with Yeshua’s message of salvation. We are preparing a powerful gospel campaign to be held in Jerusalem during the upcoming Shavuot feast (Pentecost), giving people in that region the opportunity to hear the gospel for the first time in their lives. It is both a privilege, as well as our calling to be the torch that carries God’s light to those in darkness,
Shavuot is known in the Bible as Day of Pentecost or Festival of Harvest (Firstfruits). It is also known as Festival of Weeks because it counts precisely 7 weeks or 50 days from Passover. Pentecost means “fiftieth day” in Greek and celebrates the harvest’s first fruits.
After rising from the dead, Yeshua appeared to his disciples, instructing them to stay in Jerusalem to wait on the “Promise of the Father.” No time frame or day was given as to how long this wait would last, only the request of obedience.
The fact that 50 days passed before God poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem is no coincidence. It had to happen on Shavuot (Pentecost), marking the commencement of His harvest. Yeshua spoke about the harvest often, describing the fields as white and ready for Harvest and emphasizing the importance of praying to the Lord of the Harvest to send out more workers into the fields. The Holy Spirit’s release on Shavuot was a sign that God’s spiritual harvest had begun.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!
We view Shavuot as a powerful sign from God that the gospel needs to be preached continuously and His harvest needs to be cultivated and collected. This is why we are so passionate about preaching, evangelizing, and reaching the lost. At our last Shavuot Evangelism event in 2022, 950 people heard the Gospel for the first time. Over 800 people were seen praying out loud, asking to receive the Lord into their lives. This is a powerful movement of God!
As believers in Christ, carrying His message of redemption and restoration is a tremendous blessing and responsibility. Sowing into the salvation of Israel means ensuring our own lamps are well-oiled and prepared for the day our Lord returns.
Please consider donating and supporting our ongoing evangelism campaigns, such as this one on Shavuot. Your support helps brings us closer to the day when “all of Israel will be saved.” as foretold in Romans 11:26.
