Excerpt from Rock of Israel

God's Promise

All people feel lost deep down in their hearts. They wonder why they are here, why so much evil happens in the world. The Bible explains why: we want to run our own lives and do not accept God's help when we need it. This selfishness affects every person, every family, every nation, the entire human race. But God cares. He promised he would send his servant, the Messiah, to free us from ourselves and give us new and joyful hearts. God made this promise first in the Torah, the books of Moses: a promise not only to the Jewish people but to everyone around the world.

That promised Messiah is Jesus -- Yeshua in Hebrew -- who has has transformed the hearts and lives of millions of people. What is more, God has a plan for his people, Israel: to draw them to their Messiah and help change the world. Everyone is included in this plan: Jews and Gentiles, Israelis and Arabs, Russians or Americans or Europeans or Africans: for Messiah obliterates all the dividing lines between people and unites them in God's love.
