An Israeli Air Force soldier found Jesus in the Old Testament.
Israeli Air Force Soldier
Alex grew up in a secular home until he served in the Israeli Air Force. Seeing how his friends lived their Jewish lives, he wanted to live out his culture and religion. In search of his spirituality, he began reading the Torah. Alex then approached his mom to learn more about Jewish culture. That’s when he learned that his mom was a follower of Yeshua.
He was so curious about Jesus’ connection with the Jewish people and the Old Testament. His questions were answered when one day, he ran into a Christian who showed him Jesus Christ in the Old Testament. The verse that struck him the most was Jeremiah 31:31.
“The days are surely coming, says YHWH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah” – Jeremiah 31:31
“It was a turning point for me. This is the moment when I start discovering the New Testament… From the Gospels and the letters of Paul. This was the moment I gave my life to Yeshua. I decided to go and follow Him because He’s the real Messiah. He’s the Messiah of Israel, He’s my Messiah.”
Jews for Jesus
After accepting Jesus Christ, his life entirely changed. He soon got baptized in the water and started serving the Lord.
“Since then, I volunteer with Jews for Jesus with ‘Yehudim Lema’an Yeshua’ in Israel. At some point, I started to serve as a minister with them.”
Today, he is helping the Jewish community get to know Jesus and have a relationship with Him.
“I see the change in the Jewish Israeli community. I see more and more people want to hear about Yeshua.”
