Thought this book would be one I could give a Jewish friend in hopes of leading him to Christ. More his testimony with no real connection between Judaism and Christianity to convince one to believe in Christ.
Rabbi K. A. Schneider tells his personal story of God's supernatural revelation of Jesus the Jewish Messiah in his book "Awakening to Messiah." The book is written to help the reader find their true identity and to become aware of Yeshua (Jesus) as a spiritual reality.
Schneider writes from personal his experience of supernatural encounters with Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) and shares the lessons he learned from these experiences. It is his hope that the reader will be enriched with a fuller understanding of the indwelling spirit of Christ as they move forward in their faith journey. He encourages the reader to incorporate their study of the written Word of God with their experience of intimacy with the living Word, Jesus (Yeshua). His revelatory insights into Messianic prophecies, our bodies as the dwelling place of God (His temple), the inner presence of Jesus and the resultant transformation, wholeness, and peace are profound and confirmed with scriptural evidence.
"Precept upon precept" Rabbi Schneider equips the reader with an understanding of multi-cultured ministry, witnessing strategies for sharing Jesus as Messiah, conquering objections, and meeting people where they are. I was specifically challenged by the illustrations of sitting at the feet of Jesus in a leisurely expectancy allowing Him to accomplish His purpose in His timing.
"Awakening to Messiah - A Supernatural Discovery of the Jewish Messiah" is designed to point Jewish people to a personal understanding, recognition and experience of Jesus (Yeshua) as Messiah and to provide an understanding of the Jewish culture, its people, and history to Christ followers. He then challenge them to become intentional in seeking out Jewish people with the express purpose of introducing them to Yeshua.
