Anglican Pentecostal Perspective on Charismatic Leaders Fellowship 2015

Permission for a Christian tent revival in Jerusalem seemed impossible. The mayor of Jerusalem is famous for his dislike of Christians. That obstacle was providentially disintegrated. But then Mr. Blake heard the Lord tell him to get a blessing for his revivals from the Chief Rabbi of Israel. Again, through amazing circumstances Mr. Blake was allowed access to Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, the Chief Rabbi, and had several conversations with him.

Mr. Blake reported that Rabbi Riskin believes that the chief priest of the Temple had a “prayer language” and that that Jesus spoke in tongues! Additionally, Rabbi Riskin believes that all followers of God must trust the Holy Spirit.[4] Blake was not only given a full blessing for the four Israeli revivals, but Rabbi Riskin promised to come to North Carolina and worship with Christians at a planned forthcoming event in the summer of 2015.

All this is astounding, but also in accord with a providential move within Orthodox Jewish rabbis and scholars to appreciate and affirm Christianity and the Holy Spirit in terms that would have been unimaginable just decades ago. Many Jewish Orthodox scholars and rabbis are now of the opinion that the Apostle Paul succeeded where the Pharisees failed – he brought the worship of God of Israel to the whole world. This is a radical reversal of traditional orthodox rabbinical thought which has considered Paul as villain and chief apostate of the Jewish people.[5]

Everyone in the CLF meeting was excited about what Mr. Blake and the Lord had accomplished. We are looking forward and praying for a great revival in Israel this May as Mr. Blake’s tents are planted and he and his team bring healing and the good news of the Kingdom to our brothers in that land.[6]

Rabbi Marty Waldman

Amazing stuff, but it continued.

The next presenter was Rabbi Marty Waldman. He is the senior Rabbi of Baruch HaShem Messianic Synagogue in Dallas, Texas. He is also on the governing board of an organization called “Toward Jerusalem Council II” (TJCII). From its website, the group defines its purpose as:

an initiative of repentance and reconciliation between the Jewish and Gentile segments of the Church. The vision is that one day there will be a second Council of Jerusalem that will be, in an important respect, the inverse of the first Council described in Acts 15. Whereas the first Council was made up of Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus), who decided not to impose on the Gentiles the requirements of the Jewish law, so the second Council would be made up of Gentile church leaders, who would recognize and welcome the Jewish believers in Yeshua without requiring them to abandon their Jewish identity and practice.[7]
