Q. I read your web site with great interest. Thanks for the time you spend in keeping it current. My question regards my half sister who is married to a Jewish man. I did not meet her until I was 22. She is not born again, nor is her husband. She has made it very clear that she does not want to hear about my “religion”. Seems I offended her with a religious Christmas card one year even though she and her family celebrate “all the holidays”, meaning the secular form of Christmas and also Hanukkah. So I honor that by not bringing it up whenever I communicate with her. They have three children, two girls and a boy.
What I am wondering is if when God calls the Jews back to Israel, do you think its possible that this will include their family? I pray for their salvation on occasion, but it would be interesting to see if this is the method God will use to save them (if they are going to be saved). I think it would be exciting if her husband was called to be one of the 144,000.
A. The Bible says that after the Battle of Ezekiel 38, God will begin calling all the Jews back to Israel, not leaving any behind. (Ezek 39:28) You really should consider praying for them more consistently, before it’s too late. During the Great Tribulation, believing Jews will be hunted like dogs. You wouldn’t want your worst enemy subjected to that ordeal. The only thing worse would be if they were not believers at all.
