A Jewish woman cried out to God for help, lifted her head, and saw a sign that changed her life forever. Read Transcript


Gordon: THE NAME SHE

Gordon: THE NAME SHE

DARED NOT SPEAK.

THE NAME, JESUS, WAS

FORBIDDEN IN THE HOUSEHOLD.

I SAW A LITTLE "T" ON A

BUILDING.

Gordon: HOW A PARKING

LOT SIGN ANSWERED THIS

JEWISH WOMAN'S QUESTION.

THAT WAS A SHOCK TO ME.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WE USE

TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO THIS SHOW.

ON THIS SPECIAL DAY, GOOD

FRIDAY, CHRISTIANS AROUND

THE WORLD ARE TAKING TIME TO

REMEMBER WHAT OUR LORD DID

FOR US.

BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE FOR

EVERYONE.

SOME PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHO

JESUS IS.

AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED ON THE CROSS.

Terry: THAT WAS TRUE

FOR MICHELLE ARMOR.

RAISED IN A DEVOUT JEWISH

FAMILY, YOU COULD SAY SHE

WAS CLUELESS ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY.

ALL THAT CHANGED WHEN SHE

SAW A STRANGE SIGN IN A

PARKING LOT.

THE NAME JESUS WAS

FORBIDDEN IN OUR HOUSEHOLD.

I DID TRY TO TALK TO -- TO

ASK MY DAD A QUESTION.

AND HE TOLD ME THAT THIS

NAME IS NOT ALLOWED IN THIS

HOUSEHOLD.

Reporter: MICHELLE GREW

UP IN JERUSALEM, IN A DEVOUT

ISRAELI FAMILY.

WE KEPT THE SABBATH.

WE WENT TO SYNAGOGUE.

WE CELEBRATED ALL OF THE

FEASTS AND THE HOLIDAYS OF

THE JEWISH TRADITION.

BUT MY DAD USED TO WORK FOR

A TOURIST COMPANY, AND HE

WOULD HAVE A LOT OF

MISSIONARY GROUPS HE WOULD

TAKE AND DROP OFF AT THE

HOLY SITES.

I NEVER KNEW WHAT THEY WERE

ACTUALLY GOING TO SEE.

I THINK IT PEAKED MY

INTEREST BECAUSE I SAW A

LITTLE "T" ON A BUILDING,

WHICH WAS A CROSS, BUT I

DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS A CROSS.

HE WOULD SAY, THIS IS JUST

THEIR SYNAGOGUE, THE

CHRISTIAN SYNAGOGUE.

I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL, AND

WHEN YOU GRADUATE HIGH

SCHOOL IN ISRAEL, YOU

IMMEDIATELY GO TO SERVE THE

COUNTRY, WHEN YOU'RE 18.

SO I WENT TO MILITARY

POLICE AND I SERVED AS A

SERGEANT FOR THREE YEARS.

RIGHT AFTER THE ARMY IS WHEN

I MET MY HUSBAND.

FROM THERE WE MOVED TO

PARIS, WE LIVED IN PARIS FOR

THREE YEARS.

MY HUSBAND CAME FROM -- YOU

KNOW, HE GREW UP BAPTIST, SO

HE KNEW ABOUT JESUS.

BUT, TO ME, THE CHRISTIANITY

AND JUDAISM WERE SO

CLOSE TO EACH OTHER, SO IT

DIDN'T BOTHER ME THAT HE IS

CHRISTIAN AND I'M JEWISH.

Reporter: MISERABLE AND

HER HUSBAND SOON MOVED TO

AMERICA.

THREE CHILDREN LATER, HER

HUSBAND LOST HIS JOB AND THE

BILLS STARTED PILING UP.

THEIR FINANCIAL CRISIS HIT A

TIPPING POINT WHEN MICHELLE

RECEIVED A WARRANT FOR AN

UNPAID TICKET.

I COMPLETELY FREAKED

OUT.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT

HAVING A WARRANT.

SO WE WERE ARGUING ABOUT,

OKAY, WE COULD PAY THE

MORTGAGE, AND NO ONE COULD

PAY THAT BILL.

I JUST LEFT THE HOUSE THAT

DAY.

AND I SLAMMED THE DOOR, LEFT

THE HOUSE.

I WAS CRYING.

AND I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW

WHERE I'M DRIVING.

I JUST DROVE SOMEWHERE.

I PULLED INTO A PARKING LOT,

AND I PUT MY HEAD ON THE

TEARING WHEEL.

I WAS CRYING.

I WAS ASKING GOD WHY, WHY WE

HAVE TO STRUGGLE.

WHAT'S GOING ON.

WHY AM I IN THIS PARK.

PLEASE HELP ME.

AND THEN I PICKED UP MY

HEAD, AND IT FOLLOWED ME.

THERE WAS A SIGN.

AND THE SIGN HAS A STAR

OF DAVID ON IT, WHICH

IMMEDIATELY CAUGHT MY EYE.

AND THEN HE SAID, WE BELIEVE

IN THE TORAH, MOSES, THE

USHUAIA, THE MESSIAH.

IT SAYS ON THE BOTTOM, THERE

ARE JEWISH WHO BELIEVE IN

JESUS IN USHUAIA.

AND THAT WAS A SHOCK TO ME.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES.

SO I FELT A LITTLE LOST IN A

WAY BECAUSE I FELT LIKE I'VE

BEEN CHEATED BY MY PARENTS,

WHO NEVER TOLD ME ANYTHING

LIKE THIS.

THEY WOULDN'T WANT ME TO ASK

QUESTIONS.

AND NOW I HAD THIS MUCH OF

QUESTIONS TO ASK THEM.

AND I ASKED THE PASTOR SO

MANY QUESTIONS IN THAT

CONVERSATION.

SO HE INVITED ME TO COME IN

AND SIT DOWN AND TALK AND

LEARN MORE ABOUT IT.

AND THAT'S WHAT I DID.

I READ THE BIBLE IN HEBREW.

AND WHEN I SAT DOWN AND READ

THE NEW TESTAMENT, I

CONNECTED THE DOTS TO THE

OLD TESTAMENT.

I SAID, I KNEW IT WAS A

CONTINUATION OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

BY GOING TO THAT CHURCH, I

REALIZED THAT USHUAIA IS THE

MESSIAH.

AND I LEARNED ABOUT HIM.

MY WHOLE ISSUE WITH HIM GOT

DEEPER, AND I UNDERSTOOD

THINGS I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

BEFORE.

YOU KNOW, I LOOKED AT THINGS

WAY DIFFERENTLY.

I STARTED HAVING A PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

I STARTED TALKING WITH HIM.

AND MY WHOLE RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD AND

USHUAIA, THE MESSIAH.

SO MANY BLESSINGS CAME TO MY

LIVES.

I COULD TELL THAT THE DAY

I'VE CHANGED AND STARTED

USING MY HEART, THINGS HAVE

CHANGED.

OUR RELATIONSHIP GOT BETTER

AND BETTER, YOU KNOW, BY THE

DAY.

I THINK THAT MOST OF THE

ANGER, YOU KNOW, WENT AWAY

AND LOVE CAME IN TO THE

HOUSE.

AND A LOT MORE PEACE.

FINANCIALLY, HE GOT A JOB.

FOR THE JEWISH PERSON WHO IS

GOING TO LOOK FOR ANSWERS, I

WOULD SAY EDUCATE YOURSELF

AND LEARN AND COMPARE

SCRIPTURES IN HEBREW, FROM

OUR BIBLE, THAT WE LEARN IN

SCHOOL, TO THE NEW

TESTAMENT, IN HEBREW.

BECAUSE OFTENTIMES WE'VE

BEEN TOLD DIFFERENT THINGS.

WE REALLY NEED TO LOOK INTO

THE BIBLE AND THE TORAH, THE

NEW TESTAMENT, TO GET OUR

ANSWERS.

USHUAIA IS THE MESSIAH.

WE'RE ALL WAITING FOR HIM IN

ISRAEL, AND HE IS ALREADY

HERE.

Gordon: TAKE THAT

CHALLENGE.

INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELF.

REALIZE THAT THE NEW

TESTIMONY WAS ALL WRITTEN BY

JEWS.

EVERY SINGLE BOOK.

AND THEY ALL CLAIM THAT THEY

FOUND THE MESSIAH, HOW HE

SPECIFICALLY FULFILLED

PROPHECIES IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, OF HIS COMING,

HIS LIFE, HIS DEATH, HIS

BURIAL, AND HIS

RESURRECTION.

AND THEN THE PROMISE THAT HE

WILL COME AGAIN.

THIS TIME TO ESTABLISH HIS

KINGDOM ON EARTH.

AND SO THAT THINGS ARE DONE

ON EARTH AS THEY ARE IN

HEAVEN.

INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELF.

AND IF YOU NEED HELP WITH

THAT, WE HAVE A SPECIAL ON

cbn.com, WHERE YOU CAN JUST

TYPE IN THE WORDS, "THE

JEWISH JESUS," AND YOU'LL

GET A SEGMENT ON HOW JESUS

FULFILLED THE SPECIFIC

PROPHECIES IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

AND IF HE IS NOT THE

MESSIAH, THEN IT IS GOING TO

BE VERY HARD FOR A COMING

MESSIAH TO FULFILL THEM

ALL.

SO INVESTIGATE FOR

YOURSELF.

I LIKE TO TELL MY JEWISH

FRIENDS, THE LONGER I'M A

CHRISTIAN, THE MORE JEWISH I

BECOME.

I LIKE TO TELL MY CHRISTIAN

FRIENDS, THAT WE'RE GRAFTED

INTO AN ANCIENT TREE.

AND WITHOUT THE JEWS, WHO

GAVE US THE ORICLES OF

GOD, THERE WOULDN'T BE A

CHRISTIANITY.

IT IS A JEWISH RELIGION.

INVESTIGATE, FIND OUT FOR

YOURSELF, AND REALIZE THE

ONLY ONE WHO CAN CONVERT YOU

USHUAIA, THE MESSIAH.

LOOK AT HIS CLAIMS.

LOOK AT HIS LIFE.

LOOK AT HIS DEATH, HIS

RESURRECTION.

LOOK AND SEE, AND SEE FOR

YOURSELF, AND YOU CAN COME

TO THE SAME CONCLUSION THAT

MICHELLE CAME TO.

AND THEN THE JOURNEY REALLY

BEGINS.

BECAUSE THEN WHEN YOU PRAY,

YOU GET AN ANSWER.

HE WILL HEAR YOU.

HE WILL APPEAR TO YOU.

HE WILL BE WITH YOU.

HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR

FORSAKE YOU.

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THIS,

AND YOU NEED HELP WITH

ANYTHING, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS CALL US.

WE'RE HERE, AND THE NUMBER

IS TOLL-FREE:

1-888-777-1999.

TEREZA?

Terry: UP NEXT, A JEW

WHO SPENT THREE YEARS HIDING

IN A BASEMENT.

IT IS STILL DIFFICULT TO

SPEAK ABOUT IT.

Terry: A HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR RECOUNTS HER LIFE

IN THE GHETTO, WHEN WE

RETURN.

Terry: THERE ARE FEWER

THAN 200,000 HOLOCAUST

SURVIVORS LIVING IN ISRAEL

TODAY.

AND MANY OF THEM ARE

STRUGGLING TO GET BY.

SO CBN IS ON THE GROUND AND

GETTING THEM THE FOOD AND

THE MEDICINE THEY NEED.

Reporter: ELIZABETH

TISHMAN IS ONE OF ABOUT

200,000 HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

LIVING IN ISRAEL.

SHE WAS ONLY 11 YEARS OLD

WHEN THE HORROR OF THE

HOLOCAUST BEGAN TO UNFOLD IN

HER NATIVE RUSSIA.

NAZIS FORCED HER NEIGHBORS

INTO GHETTOS.

TO AVOID CAPTURE, HER FAMILY

TOOK SHELTER IN A FRIEND'S

BASEMENT.

IN THE DARKNESS, SHE

WITNESSED TERRIBLE

TRAGEDIES.

THERE WAS A LITTLE CHILD

WITH HIS MOTHER, AND HE

CRIED A LOT, SO SHE

SUFFOCATED HIM TO AVOID US

ALL GETTING KILLED.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS

LIKE TO LAY ON STRAW WHEN IT

IS RAINING AND YOU DON'T

HAVE A BLANKET TO COVER

YOURSELF.

OR WHEN A NAZI OFFICER COMES

AT NIGHT TO SEARCH YOUR

HOUSE, IT IS A NIGHTMARE.

Reporter: AFTER THREE

TORTUROUS YEARS, NEWS CAME

THAT THE WAR WAS FINALLY

OVER.

PEOPLE RAN INTO THE

TREATS SHOUTING, "WE'RE

FREE."

WE ALL CRIED AND HUGGED EACH

OTHER.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

Reporter: TODAY, LIKE

MANY HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS IN

ISRAEL, ELIZABETH LIVES IN

POVERTY.

WHEN I FIRST CAME HERE, I

HAD ONLY CUCUMBERS, BREAD

AND WATER.

Reporter: CBN HELPED

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS BY

TAKING FOOD TO THEM EVERY

MONTH.

I LIKE WHEN THEY COME.

I LIKE THAT THEY BELIEVE IN

GOD.

IF GOD LED ME TO THIS LIFE,

AND YOU CAN COME TO SEE ME,

THAT MEANS THAT GOD HAS NOT

FORGOTTEN ME.

Reporter: RECENTLY

ELIZABETH'S GAS STOVE

STARTED TO LEAK.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO

FIX IT AND HAD NO WAY TO

COOK.

SO WE TOOK HER SHOPPING AND

BOUGHT HER A NEW STOVE.

I WANT TO THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE

YOU HEALTH AND HAPPINESS.

Terry: SO MANY OF THESE

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS ARE

STILL ALIVE TODAY, BUT WITH

VERY LITTLE TO LIVE ON.
