The death of George Floyd at the hands of police in the summer of 2020 shocked the nation. As riots rocked American cities, Christians affirmed from the pulpit and in social media that “black lives matter” and that racial justice “is a gospel issue.”
But what if there is more to the social justice movement than those Christians understand? Even worse: What if they’ve been duped into preaching ideas that actually oppose the Kingdom of God?
In this powerful book, Voddie Baucham, a preacher, professor, and cultural apologist, explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and Critical Race Theory—revealing how it already has infiltrated some seminaries, leading to internal denominational conflict, canceled careers, and lost livelihoods. Like a fault line, it threatens American culture in general—and the evangelical church in particular.
Whether you’re a layperson who has woken up in a strange new world and wonders how to engage sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race or a pastor who is grappling with a polarized congregation, this book offers the clarity and understanding to either hold your ground or reclaim it.
There is an excitement in Israel right now – so much so, that top rabbis are congregating at the Western wall and surrounding a young rabbi and lining up to kiss his hand. His name?
Rav Shlomo Yehuda Be’eri Shilta
A video about the Rabbi’s life:
This video is presented in commemoration of our teacher and rabbi, the Yanuka’s 33rd birthday. My gratitude is given first and foremost to the Creator of the World, that we merited the tzaddik, foundation of the world, the Torah genius, the Yanuka, Rav Shlomo Yehuda Be’eri Shilta, who has now reached 33 years of age. May Hash-m prolong his days in goodness and pleasantness, in order to magnify Torah and ‘restore the crown to its former glory.’ The video before you captures moments in the life and ways of the Yanuka; fascinating records from the unique childhood of a prodigy who climbed and succeeded reaching spiritual peaks despite unconventional conditions and difficult winding roads. Leading rabbis testify, “A neshama like his descends once in many generations.” And now, we merit discovering a small portion from the childhood of a Torah giant who grew out of a generation in upheaval – into a pure world of yearning and longing for Hash-m. From his youth he paved his way in acquiring the Torah in its complete entirety and spreading its light on ways of peace; becoming a magnet which draws and retrieves, and further irrigating the assembly who ‘searches out Hash-m,’ those thirsty for water. I am full of thanks to Hash-m for giving me the privilege of presenting the finished product and quenching the viewer’s thirst to know and be warmed by his light. Special thanks to all, who because them, I was able to gather the material for the video: Moshe Davidovitch, the magazine: Mishpacha, Y. Shalom for the rare pictures, S. Kalman for the footage and documentation, Y. Moses for the rare material, D. Freidman, and to all who wish to remain anonymous. With blessings, Aryeh Gold
At this point I feel led to republish an article I wrote several years ago:
After I was saved in 1983, I called a Messianic Congregation in my area and spoke to a lovely lady – a fellow Jewish Christian. She was so excited over my coming to know Yeshua as my Savior! We must have talked for well over an hour, but the thing I remember so vividly was when she brought up Isaiah 53. She asked if I had ever read that portion of Scripture. I had not – but promised that I would after we hung up.
To say that I was shocked would be a gross understatement. I remember reading the words over and over. I wondered why I had never heard this in my synagogue.
It was a clear picture of our Redeemer – Yeshua – and why He went to that Cross to suffer and die. I’m sure that most of the readers of this article have read Isaiah 53 numerous times. But for those who have not – I am placing it here:
*All bolded words are for emphasis for the reader.
“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53: 1-12).
Perhaps you have Jewish friends for whom you are praying. Showing them this passage of Scripture is very powerful! But please pray for the Lord to show you the right time to do this.
As we read this chapter of Romans, it is clear that the partial hardening of the Jewish people towards Yeshua, was instrumental in opening up heaven to believing Gentiles. It also says that my people will become jealous of the Gentiles and their relationship with God. I believe that we are seeing this clearly today.
This Scripture always made me understand that Jesus did not just come for His people Israel – but ultimately for the whole world:
“Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3) (emphasis added).
ISRAEL: A man is coming who will deceive you. You will think that he is the long awaited Messiah, but he will be indwelled by Satan. You will sign an enforcement of a seven year treaty with this devil. I pray that you will never forget these words. NEVER.
The Lord is Good and True and Righteous; and His Word never changes!
