JD: So then Meno actually you were able to find Jesus in the Old Testament that then encouraged you to establish a church to let other Jewish people recognize that Jesus was there as well. Is that basically your motivation for establishing a church?
MK: Well yes, the sum of 20 years in one sentence but it took along time. It took time but it is generally the idea.
JD: Have you been persecuted by those in Israel because you are a pastor of a church? In other words, I think I remember a most wanted sign for you because you were preaching the gospel is that correct?
MK: Yes it’s correct. Again when a person is persecuted I’m ashamed to say its compelled to those in China and Africa that some of them were gunned down because claiming the gospel. So it did not come to this way to my life but you know it happened. But you know what it just brought us closer to the Lord and motivated us to do more.
JD: I have to ask this question of course it’s a natural question after what you’ve been telling us. Have you ever done anything in the church that is against the law, a crime in Israel for simply preaching the gospel and trying to win Jews to Jesus Christ?
MK: No, we never did anything we just considered the lesson of the law. The law is very clear that man does not take money from a person in order to change their religion, number one. Number two, do not preach to minors. I do not preach to minors. We teach our children our youth in the church to know the Bible and to be able to share their faith. They do so to their friends at school, those who ask them. So children are speaking with children. Youth are speaking with youth. I do not speak with minors.
JD: Pastor Meno Kalisher from Jerusalem with the details as to why he is giving the gospel to Jews in Israel so that they can convert to Jesus Christ and why it is not illegal to do so.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
This report is evidence that what happened in the first century church in Jerusalem can and must happen today. A Hebrew of the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Romans that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. That the wages of sin is death and whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, that’s Romans chapters 3, 6, 10. In fact the only reason that the Rapture has not happened is that the Lord is not willing that any should perish. He wants all to be saved, that’s II Peter 3:9.
