By Sid Israel Roth
Recently I interviewed one of the top evangelists in the world. He has such a passion for souls and carries Harvest Glory with him wherever he goes, whether it’s a ministry meeting or the grocery store!
But after reading my booklet, The Mystery Law of Evangelism Revealed (required reading for all my TV guests), he had a revelation. He said that he meets lots of Jewish nonbelievers, but he never saw the need to evangelize them before. He has a great love for Israel and the Jewish people, but he was literally blind to witnessing to Jews about Messiah!
Almost all my TV guests give me feedback that the booklet is revolutionary and eye-opening. But the response from this world-class evangelist caused me to take a step back and reevaluate my ministry. Most Christians are blinded like he was.
The Trap of the Devil
There are many lies the devil plants in Christians’ hearts to keep them from evangelizing the Jew. At the same time, the devil puts lies in unsaved Jewish minds to not believe in Jesus. Paul explains the Jewish spiritual blindness in Romans 11:25:
For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery…. for a partial hardening [spiritual blindness] has come upon Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
Partial blindness was true! Because of disobedience we Jewish people were blind to the Messiahship of Jesus and under a spiritual curse. But Jesus tells us when the curse will be over:
They [the Jewish people] will fall by the edge of the sword and will be led away captive to all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (Luke 21:24).
In other words, the curse of Jewish spiritual hardness and blindness will end when Jerusalem is in Jewish possession. After the Six Day War in June 1967, Israel obtained legal possession of Jerusalem!
But in addition to the Jewish blindness, there has been a blindness on the eyes of many Christians that keeps them from witnessing to Jewish people. And most Jews are totally ignorant of even the basic facts of the Gospel or knowledge about Jesus without a witness.
The traditional rabbis tell us, “You can’t remain Jewish if you believe in Jesus!” And our DNA says we must always be Jewish (see Jeremiah 31:35-36). How did God preserve the Jewish people as a distinct people? Even non-practicing Jews inherently know this fact: “I was born a Jew and I will die a Jew!” Do you see the trap the devil has constructed against us?

And Paul further says about the Jewish people in Romans 10:13-14:
For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
It’s a New Season!
But remember the historic Game Changer—the Glory of God! When the Glory hit a Jewish rabbi named Saul of Tarsus (Paul), his spiritual scales disappeared, and his mindset instantly changed. Then Paul immediately went into the synagogue and became a bold witness for Jesus!
Over 50 years ago, God’s Glory touched me too and I instantly began to boldly witness to others about Jesus! This Glory is released every time I speak before unsaved Jewish people and I have seen large numbers profess Jesus as their Messiah as a result.
I have also seen the impact of God’s Glory in my own family. My traditional Jewish Polish father (left), who supernaturally survived when millions of Polish Jews were killed in the Holocaust, accepted Jesus on his deathbed! For his entire life, he hated even hearing the name of Jesus. In the natural his salvation was impossible. But God’s Glory defied all logic! God’s Glory—His manifest Presence—came upon me for seven days, 24 hours a day, just before my dad made Jesus his Lord!
It’s too late to tell me Jewish people are not interested in believing in Jesus! Jerusalem is now in Jewish possession, and I have witnessed thousands of Jews—even in Israel—make public professions of faith in the Lord! My sister and brother-in-law who live in Israel have attended many of my Jewish outreaches there. After one of my meetings, my sister said, “Sid, you were not that good today. So why did so many Jewish people get saved?” It was not me! I can take no credit. Even when I’m not at my best, it’s the Glory of God that wins anyone to Jesus.
Take a look at the visible Glory that someone captured on their camera at one of my Israeli outreaches (right). Watch what happens when a Greater Glory than was on Paul comes on you! What’s coming will be a no-name revival and only God will get the Glory! It’s time for the new season! It’s time for something more! It’s time for the Greater Glory! (Prophesied in Haggai 2:9 and Isaiah 60:1-3.). It’s time to do “greater works” than Jesus! (Prophesied in John 14:12.)
As a new Jewish believer, I witnessed the outpouring of God’s Spirit through the Charismatic outpouring and the Jesus Revolution. The least likely became radical for Jesus! And many leaders today trace their roots to this outpouring. The touch I received from God was so real it has kept me on fire for Messiah for over 50 years and counting! And many others can say the same thing!
But compared to what’s coming, we haven’t seen anything yet! No generation in history has ever experienced the Greater Glory described in Scripture! I believe it will be greater than all the moves of God put together. One sign of this new move will be the visible Glory Cloud appearing. It will also be known by deep repentance caused by the Presence of God coming upon believers and nonbelievers! No great singers or anointed evangelistic preaching will trigger this. In fact, God will ask the celebrities to get out of the way!
And when the Glory sweeps a television studio, arena or church building, every sick person will be instantly healed. Many creative miracles will take place on camera like amputated limbs, missing eyes or teeth growing out in plain view! And prophetic words will be at a higher level than those of Samuel in the Old Testament! Not one word will fall to the ground without coming to pass.
If one young Jewish rabbi—the Apostle Paul—could write much of the New Testament and open the door for the Gospel to reach every Gentile, what could tens of thousands of young Jewish Pauls accomplish with even Greater Glory?
I am single minded on the new. I am focused on the Jewish Harvest that will jump-start the Gentile Harvest—one more time. And the catalyst will be the Greater Glory!
Jesus Appears to Jewish Nonbelievers!
Rabbi Jonathan Bernis is a friend I have known for many years. In 1993, Jonathan invited me to be a guest speaker at his first Jewish outreach in the former Soviet Union. It was also my first evangelistic experience with Russian Jews. The government had just allowed freedom of religion. Jonathan and I were shocked when we saw the hunger these Jews had for the Gospel! We both went on to have our own evangelistic ministries among Russian Jews.
But now Jonathan has told me about something new God is doing in the United States. Jewish people are receiving divine visitations from Jesus! Jonathan is pioneering a new Messianic Jewish congregation in Los Angeles, California. Two new members of his congregation sought him out after having such encounters. In both cases, the individuals were Gen Z (mid-20s) who were raised in Jewish homes and had no recollection of ever being witnessed to or of reading the New Testament. Both claim that Jesus came to them in bodily form and told them His purpose for their lives. When Jonathan asked who had shared the Gospel with them, both looked surprised and replied, “No one.” When he told them their testimonies were unique, they again seemed surprised and replied that they had spoken to Jewish friends who have had similar experiences!
Jonathan and I are convinced we are living in a new day when such divine visitations will become more and more commonplace!
Please consider joining our Team Glory. Together, we can pioneer this last and greatest never-ending outpouring of God’s Spirit! It’s time for all hands on deck!

Order Sid’s Temple Menorah Pendant & Book The Mystery law of Evangelism Revealed
In honor of the new, I have designed a new Menorah pendant with seven candlesticks. It’s described in the Bible and represents the fire of God and the seven-fold Spirit of God found in Isaiah 11:2-3:
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord [the seventh Spirit].
The number seven is used to illustrate “completeness” throughout the Bible. When God created the earth in six days, He rested on the seventh day and declared it was “very good”!
Our Menorah pendant is a replica of the emblem of the State of Israel. Although we have offered a similar Menorah in the past, this one is greatly enhanced. It is stainless steel coated with a film of 18k gold and includes a better setting for the faceted stones. I have been wearing mine for six months and it still looks like new!
I find that unsaved Jewish people as well as Christians are attracted to my Menorah pendant, and it leads to great witnessing opportunities. I want to send you this Menorah and chain as you join our Team Glory with your gift of $39 ($51 Canadian) or more.
In addition to the Menorah pendant, you will also receive my booklet, The Mystery Law of Evangelism Revealed, in which I share the best wisdom God has given me from decades of Jewish evangelism. (See offer on page 3.)
By helping us showcase God’s Glory worldwide, you share in the Glory surrounding our ministry. You will be partnering with us as we evangelize the world by going to the Jew first through our TV networks—Middle East Television and It’s Supernatural! Network—and our other outreaches!
