The genuine grace message of Jesus causes a person to live a holy life, have great peace and joy, and enter into eternal life.


The Priceless Gift of Grace
By Tony KempI have a friend who was diagnosed
with mental retardation, addicted
to drugs, and living in the projects
when he received Jesus as Lord
and Savior in 1982. As he was discipled
into the grace of Messiah Jesus, he was
healed of mental retardation, delivered
from drugs, and given the idea to start
a cleaning business. Later he was given
some other business ideas. By 2007, during
the beginning of an economic downturn,
he was making $140,000 a year. Because he
practiced repentance, lived a righteous life
and developed his intimacy with Jesus, by
2012 he was making a half million dollars
a year, and he was the vice president of a
growing company. The true grace message
of Jesus produces a transformation of
habits, character and life. In order to
access this grace, we must understand
how the apostles interpreted the true grace
message of Jesus.In 2 Timothy 2:15, Paul says, “Be
diligent to present yourself approved to
God, a worker who does not need to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of
truth.”There are so many different teachings
today on the doctrine of grace that it may
be difficult for people to discern the truth
from the counterfeit. The “Word” must be
rightly divided.Some teachers say that everyone will
be saved. Others say people will go to hell
for a period of chastisement, but because
of the love and grace of God, they will be
permitted out and brought into heaven.
Many teach that you can never lose your
salvation no matter how you live your life.Let us examine these teachings in the
light of Jesus’ own words in Mark 9:43-44:
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It
is better for you to enter into life maimed,
rather than having two hands, to go
to hell, into the fire that shall never be
quenched—where ‘Their worm does not
die and the fire is not quenched.’
Jesus is talking to His disciples (see verse 35). Jesus is not talking to the world,
He is addressing His very own—the Twelve!Notice Jesus says to His disciples in
verse 43, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut
it off….”
Jesus is saying that if you [disciples] die
sinning; you will go “into the fire that shall
never be quenched.”

Jesus clearly states that if a person
dies in sin, whether that person is a sinner,
a backslider, or a Christian who died in
rebellion to the Word of God, once you enter
the lake of fire, you are there forever!

The grace teaching of Jesus is very
clear. It warns of eternal damnation for
the person who dies in sin! The grace and
love of Jesus warns people of the eternal
consequences of sin!

There are some who teach and believe
that a loving, kind, and good God would
never condemn a person to the lake of fire.
Let’s look at that belief in light of God’s
Word. John, the apostle of the love and grace
of God, wrote in Revelation 20:10-12, 15 the
The devil, who deceived them, was cast into
the lake of fire and brimstone where the
beast and the false prophet are. And they
will be tormented day and night forever
and ever. Then I saw a great white throne
and Him who sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away. And there
was found no place for them. And I saw
the dead, small and great, standing before
God, and books were opened. And another
book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
And the dead were judged according to their
works…. And anyone not found written in
the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Notice that Satan, the beast, the false
prophet, and all who did not believe and
obey the teaching of Jesus the Messiah
were cast into the lake of fire forever and

Again, John, writing by the inspiration
of the Holy Spirit says in the book of
Revelation 14:9-11:
Then a third angel followed them, saying
with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the
beast and his image, and receives his mark
on his forehead or on his hand, he himself
shall also drink of the wine of the wrath
of God, which is poured out full strength
into the cup of His indignation. He shall
be tormented with fire and brimstone in
the presence of the holy angels and in the
presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of
their torment ascends forever and ever;
and they have no rest day or night, who
worship the beast and his image, and
whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Here the apostle points out the
severity of the judgment of God upon
those whose reject Jesus and accept the
mark of the beast. John makes it clear that
for the person who receives the mark of
the beast, there is no more grace available!

The apostle Paul also states in
Romans 11:22, “Therefore consider
the goodness and severity of God: on
those who fell, severity; but toward you,
goodness, if you continue in His goodness.
Otherwise you also will be cut off.”

Consider the goodness and severity
of God. In order to have a balanced view,
one must see His mercy and goodness
but also His righteousness and holiness.

Tony Kemp is the founding pastor of Embassy Christian Church in Hannibal, Missouri. Tony teaches on the depths of worship wich opens up healing, signs and wonders in your life.

Paul goes on to say to the believers
that they must continue to obey the
teaching of Jesus the Messiah for the rest
of their lives or they will be “cut off.” The
way “you continue in His goodness” is to
obey the word of Jesus!

Paul says in Romans 11:21 to the
believers “if God did not spare the natural
branches, He may not spare you either.”

The genuine grace message of Jesus
causes a person to live a holy life, have
great peace and joy, and enter into eternal
life! Isaiah writes, “Oh, that you had
heeded My commandments! Then your
peace would have been like a river, and
your righteousness like the waves of the
sea” (48:18). For those of us who walk in
the fear of the Lord and the priceless gift
of God’s grace, we will return to Zion with
singing and everlasting joy will be upon
our heads forever and ever! It is time
for the church to arise and shine for the
glory of the Lord is risen upon you! Be
supernaturally empowered by the grace
of God Almighty and do the works of the
Messiah Jesus!

Dear Mishpochah

As I begin to share this
amazing end-time truth, I
am thinking of my Uncle
Jay. Jay was Jewish and a
professional comedian
with a sharp wit. He
would watch Benny Hinn
on TV and mock him. I knew my uncle
loved me, but he would get so angry
when he talked about the Christian
shows he had watched that he would
curse me too. The amazing thing was —
he was watching Christian television and
hearing the Gospel! Family members
told me that even my Orthodox Jewish
father would watch Christian television
when he was alone.Newsletter_SidRoth2.jpg

This is what motivates me to do my
television show. This is why I do not raise
money on the air or talk much about my
Jewish evangelistic ministry. I know the
unsaved are watching and I do not want
to turn them off. I also know believers
must operate in the supernatural to reach
the unsaved. This is why I mentor you in
the supernatural. This is why God gave
me this revelation based on Psalm 122:6
KJV: “Pray for the PEACE of Jerusalem:
they shall PROSPER that love thee.”

The Hebrew word for “peace” is
“shalom,” which means “completeness.”
When will Jerusalem be complete? When
Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, all the
Jews return to live there, all Israel is
saved and Yeshua (Jesus) rules as King!

Today, we are seeing this
completeness being birthed quickly!
At the same time the anti-Christ spirit
is resisting ferociously. Why? Because
the devil knows that every time a Jewish
person is born again, we move closer to
the return of King YESHUA. In Matthew
23:39 Yeshua says to the Jewish people,
“You shall see Me no more till you say,
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of
the Lord!’”

Some Christians believe Jewish
people are saved based on following the
Old Covenant. But God says in Hebrews
9:22, “without [the] shedding of blood
there is no remission [of sin].” And since
the blood sacrifice must be in the Temple
and the Temple was destroyed in A.D.
70, we Jewish people have no atonement
under the Old Covenant.

Other believers think it is not
necessary to evangelize Jewish people
because the Bible says in Romans 11:26,
“And so all Israel will be saved….” But
what about those who die before their
National Day of Salvation? This is God’s
answer in Acts 4:12: “Nor is there
salvation in any other, for there is no
other name under heaven given among
men by which we must be saved.” The
devil knows if he can prevent Jewish
salvation, he can abort the greatest
revival in history!

We are also closer to the “shalom”
or “completeness” Paul talks about in
Ephesians 2:14-16,22 — the formation
of the One New Man! Paul says when
the middle wall of separation between
Jew and Gentile comes down in Jesus it
creates “peace” or “completeness.” This
is what Paul means when he says “having
abolished in His flesh the enmity, that
is, the law of commandments contained
in ordinances, so as to create in Himself
one new man from the two, thus making
peace [completeness]” (v. 15). This
“completeness” of the One New Man
will result in the “complete” presence of
His Spirit manifesting on earth! Not only
does the Hebrew word for “peace” mean
“completeness,” so does the Greek.

This is what Jesus meant when He
spoke about Jews and Gentiles (the only
two people groups at that time) in John
17:21: “That they [Jew and Gentile] all
may be one, as You, Father, are in Me,
and I in You; that they also may be one
in Us, that the world may believe….” This
is happening now and we are about to
see the same miracles as Jesus and even
greater! (John 14:12)

The emergence of the One New
Man will trigger the greatest revival in
history. In Amos 9:11-12, God promised
that when revival hits the tabernacle
(“family”) of David (the Jewish people),
it will cause a revival among the Gentiles.
Verse 13 says that the blessings of revival
will be so great that the reaper will not be
able to gather all the harvest before the
next planting season begins. The plowman
will overtake the reaper. There has never
been a revival in history so great!Newsletter_Mentoring2a.jpg

As you pray Psalm 122:6 for
the completeness of Jerusalem, God
promises to “prosper” you. Yes, it means
in health, family and finances, but the
greater meaning of the Hebrew word for
“prosper” is “heart peace.” There will be
a distinction between Christians who pray
for and work toward the “completeness”
of Jerusalem and those who do the
opposite. This will also be true for
nations. God has shown me those who
are not on God’s side regarding Israel will
not participate in the next, greatest and
last move of His Spirit. They will go into
further error and some will move into
false miracles as the Bible warns.

I am motivated by God’s “Law of
Evangelism.” When God wanted to reach
the world he went to the JEW FIRST
(Abraham). When Jesus wanted to reach
the world, He went to the JEW FIRST. He
said in Matthew 10:5-6, “Do not go into
the way of the Gentiles, …but go rather
to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
When Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles,
wanted to reach the Gentiles, he went to
the JEW FIRST. He said in Romans 1:16:
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of
[Messiah] for it is the power of God to
salvation for everyone who believes, for
the Jew first….”

This is why I go to the JEW FIRST.
When I follow God’s pattern, He opens
up doors to reach more Gentiles than if I
went to the Gentile first! He blesses me in
EVERY area of my life. The foundation of
the Law of Evangelism is found in Genesis
12:3, “I will bless those who bless you [the
Jewish people], and I will curse him who
curses you; and in you all the families of
the earth [the Gentiles] shall be blessed.”

Pray for the completeness of
Jerusalem: (by word and deed) and God
promises you will have heart peace.

“Give the LORD no rest until he
completes his work, until he makes
Jerusalem the pride of the earth” (Isaiah
62:7 NLT).

Shalom and Love,

Sid Israel Roth
