“Y’shua .. was troubled in spirit, and testified, “Most certainly I tell you that one of you will betray me.” Our Messiah who was at peace even when His talmidim were in fear for their lives was “troubled in spirit” by the betrayal of Judas Iscariot. Betrayal is, perhaps, the most troubling situation that ever arises among Messiah’s own. Not only was Messiah to suffer betrayal, but He also foretold widespread betrayal of His own during this final generation: “You shall be betrayed also by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends. And they will cause some of you to be put to death. And you shall be hated by all for My name’s sake.” This study of the betrayal of the King and His Kingdom by Judas Iscariot is meant to fortify us to deal with widespread betrayal foretold for the days shortly ahead. Y’shua’s emissaries / apostles were not ready for the evil day. Don’t let that happen to you! (John 13:21; Luke 21:16+17)
No doubt you are closely following the news regarding the country of Israel during these troubled times. We especially feel for Messianic believers in Israel who are facing danger and hardship because of the ongoing war with the terrorists. For that reason we are taking an interlude from our regular series to present this Tsiyon Radio Special entitled: “Bless Israel and Be Blessed.”
In this program we offer comfort and encouragement to our Israeli brethren, we showcase some great Messianic music, and we discuss what the Scriptures say about Israel as relevant to the controversy of our day. We will also have some great suggestions on what we all can do to help our Israeli brothers and sisters at this time.
