Jeanne and Jake Rosen of St. Louis are descendants of Abraham! They are Jews! And they worship another Jew … Jesus Christ and are, thus, Messianic Jews.
We together recognize that Jesus, the Son of God, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, has laid down His life by dying for us on the cross to take the punishment for our sins, rose from the dead, and is to return to earth with the surprise of a “…thief in the night!”
Some Related Scriptures …
“But God directed His love for in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us!” (Romans 5:8)
He died freely for us! Jesus said “… do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” [A “legion” is composed of about 7,000, usually in terms of soldiers. So “more” than twelve legions is more than 84,000 angels! Thus, to His followers who did not want His death, he said] “How then will the Scriptures be fulfilled which say that it must happen this way?” (Matthew 26: 53 & 54)
“(God) made (Jesus) Who knew sin to be sin in our behalf, so that we might become the righteous of God in Him.” (II Corinthians 5:21)
“But as many as received (Jesus Christ), to them He gave the right to become children of God … who were born … of God!” (John 1:12 & 13) and Jesus said “… the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out!” (John 6:37)
You can read about Jake as to how most of the family members of the generation just older than him were killed in the “holocaust” – in Europe in the 1940s during World War II – wherein the wickedness of Adolph Hitler and his Nazi political party killed 6,000,000 (million) Jews.
Hear Jake and Jeanne tell powerful stories, such as, his mother being under Nazi oppression from ages 11 – 17. In 1945 at age 17 she was in the horrible Nazi death camp of Auschwitz. Toward the end of World War II, she went into a coma and awoke to have been liberated by the Allied forces, which included soldiers from the United States. Soon thereafter, from Sweden, she wrote other Jews with the same last name, hoping to locate relatives of which there were very few. One of those Jewish young men she wrote proved not to be a relative, for which she was very glad.
She married him … and thus, as a result, we have Jake Rosen!
She also received Jesus, by faith, into her life before she, in the 1990’s, went to Heaven!
Those of us going there will get to meet her one day.
Jake – an accomplished artist – continues to be a co-pastor of Clayton Community Church in St. Louis, Missouri. See www.claytoncommunitychurch.com. He offered leadership that involved his church being a part of the “10 Days of Prayer in St. Louis.” The 2019 prayer events of www.10daysstlouis.com have concluded but, if Jesus has not returned, watch for it in 2020.
The prophet Isaiah spoke about the coming Messiah hundreds of years before He came to earth.
From Isaiah chapter 53, these prophecies:
“For He was pierced through for our transgressions (sins). He was crushed for our iniquities (sins). The chastening for our well-being fell on Him. And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray. Each of us has turned to his own way. But the Lord has caused the iniquity (sins) of us all to fall on Him.” (Isaiah 53: 5 & 6) Written about Jesus … 700 years before He came to earth!
