  1. Hello Mike,

    There is a new employee in my office and I noticed she was wearing a Star of David necklace so I asked her about it to break the ice and she mentioned her mother is Jewish, but not her father, and the necklace was a gift from her mom. After a minute she mentioned she’s not very religious.

    What would be a good way to start witnessing to her about Yeshua? My normal plan is to print out Isaiah 53 and ask her to read it and tell me who she thinks it is speaking about (after probing to find out if she is comfortable talking about these things). Then take it from there. But maybe there is something you would suggest before getting to Isaiah 53?

    Thanks Dr. Brown

  2. I know I should be talkin about the topic at hand.. but… I listen via recording right after the show end. I have meetings and hate leaving my desk and missing parts of show.

    I want to particpate in todays offer, but I couldn’t call in to show. Is there a way to still particpate in the deal. If not it is ok. thanks for all your wisdom and knowledge on the shows.

    (and today is my birthday, so I really hope I can partake in the call in offer)

    Thank you & God Bless
    Ty

  3. Dr. Brown (or Bo or any else who may answer)

    U mentioned that Islam beleivers are not praying to the same God or the God of Isreal. But we constantly hear Muslim say, “we worship the God of Abram”, leding to the conclusion that they worship the same God.

    Is your basis for this that fact that they use Quran rather than the OT?

    Thank you for your time and God Bless,

    Ty

  4. Ty, sure, just call the number tomorrow for the special offer. Also, re: Muslims, their understanding of God is fueled by the Quran, and the g/God of the Quran is certainly not the same being as the one revealed in the OT.

  5. Ty,
    Jesus told even people who were explicitly reading God’s Name – the literal descendants to whom Covenants and Promises from that very God – and told them “your father is satan”: merely because you THINK you are worshipping God does not make your god God.

  6. I appreciated Dr. Brown’s show today, even if I have, perhaps, a less gloomy view of Christianity in America.

    His comments on being immersed in the culture have been a longtime challenge for me.

    Dr. Brown is so correct — unless you are a full-time monk, most of your life is spent doing “secular” things.

    I’ve never kept track of my time, as he suggested, but if I spend 45 minutes studying my bible or in personal devotions, it’s a good day. Add to this about three hours a week in church. A couple hours in a bible study group. Maybe another hour a week witnessing.

    That’s not much! I spend way more time eating and sleepiong.

    This has plagued me, even when I was full-time in bible school or ministry.

    A breakthrough, for me, was a pastor who was always in prayer. It was disconcerting to be with this fellow. While he personally conversed with me or was in a staff meeting, he’d seamlessly start praying without a, “Heavenly Father….” introduction. It was as if God was a member of the group. Some parishioners found this so weird, they wanted to fire him (and they did!)

    For me, it was a revelation. This pastor taught me that there is no “secular” or “religious” if God is always present in your life.

    I think the medieval monks may have had this issue right. They made cheese, illuminated manuscripts or brewed beer in the name of the Lord.

    Can one read email in the name of the Lord? Navigate traffic? Watch TV?

  7. Ty,

    >>But we constantly hear Muslim say, “we worship the God of Abram”,

    As much as we hate each other — Muslims, Jews and Christians are “cousins” spiritually.

    We are all part of the monotheistic religious tradition.

    This is not to say that we share the exact same concept of God. But, we certainly do share some of the same concepts of God — at least compared to, let’s say, Hindus, Buddhists or Mormons.

    But, we clearly differ on Jesus.

    I have never heard anyone reconcile this difference.

  8. Ty,

    Read the Islamic Antichrist by Joel Richardson- you can also youtube him – great information on both Christianity, and an insight into islam. The antiparticle view gives great insight into the days we are in.

  9. sorry misspell- i text so much that i really can not spell anymore. It should be anti parallel, not antiparticle.

  10. The Rabbi’s have the upper hand in a debate with Michael Brown. If Jesus came on time, on place- the first time… then does that not mean that he must return on place and on time for the second?

    With that being established is there not a window of this return that Jesus must return?

    If he does not return by say 2020- Then does not Michael Brown believe in a fairy tale?

    Is there credence to the jubilee cycles? 6000 yr plan – a total of 120 jubilees- Abraham was at the 40th Jubilee- Jesus at the 80th Jubilee- and when is the 120th jubilee? For would not the Messiah be on date, on place for his return- It would have to be so- and the debating rabbis need to hold Michael Brown accountable to this!

    When we pass the 120th jubilee when ever that is- at that point Michael Brown needs to call Shmuley and concede the debate to him.

  11. Jon,

    You are very naive about what it is that Scripture says. By Scripture I mean, both the First and the New Testament written by Jews as well–for the most part. The first point on which you err is concerning the book of Daniel. It was Daniel that gave the timeline–prophetically laying out the time of Messiah’s appearance as being during the second temple period. It was.

    Secondly, perhaps you’re not familiar with New Testament Scriptures? It is taught to us Mat 24:36 -ESV “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son,* but the Father only.
    Footnote:
    * Some manuscripts omit nor the Son

    That “day and hour” is speaking of Messiah’s return. None of the First Testament Prophets expound on any date either, however, we are told a good bit about the signs of the times. The Lord expounded on this question asked by His disciples:

    3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

    It seems to be three separate events that they believed would happen at the same time. The Lord answers their question by breaking it down.

    Matthew 24
    Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”
    3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
    4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
    9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
    That was in answer to the first question.

    Then to the question of the sign of His coming:

    15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
    22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
    26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
    29 “Immediately after the distress of those days
    “‘the sun will be darkened,
    and the moon will not give its light;
    the stars will fall from the sky,
    and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[b]

    Next, He answers their third question:

    30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.[d] 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
    32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

    Matthew 24(NIV)

    The Day and Hour Unknown

    36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. 42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Some of the same questions are answered in Mark and Luke.

    The Othodox Jews as well as the Messianic, say that the “time of Jacob’s trouble” is yet future (but a remnant will be saved out of it) and that coincides with the book of Revelation and the tribulation.

    Do you not know these things?

  12. well, i have challenged the Rabbi’s they have Dr. Brown in a corner. The messiah must come on place, and on time- I for one know he came the first time, and am excited beyond belief that the second time is around the corner. Interest is building, all are watching. Is Michael Brown nervous? Stay tuned, exciting events are on the way!

  13. These verses are, instead (I believe), in answer to part of the first question about the destruction of the temple:

    32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

    And the “end of days” will most likely, in my assessment, parallel events that the prophets and Jesus foretold. The book of the Revelation of Messiah, Yeshua, tells us of “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” Three and half years of peace and three and a half years of so much sorrow, trouble and pain before the remnant is birthed and Messiah returns.

    Maranatha.

  14. Dear Sheila, i assure you i am of sound mind- and not double minded. i strongly encourage you to become a line of fire supporter by giving to this ministry every month. Dr. Brown has his hands full, the Rabbis will be anxious to have debates with him all over the world. He will need all the support he can get.

    thank you, jon

  15. Sheila, We do not know when the messiah is coming, But can we (should we) not know the window time frame?

    2000 yrs ago, were there not people in the middle east who had a window time frame for the coming of the messiah?

  16. Jon,

    I’ve been a monthly contributor to Dr. Brown for years now.

    Yes, you’re right, we do have the signs of the times and we can be looking for more now that Israel has been a nation again since 1948.

    We should all be looking up!

    Sorry if I was somewhat curt. After reading my post again I see I could have edited it a bit and I hope you’re not offended. I can be somewhat matter-of-factly sometimes.

    And you’re right, I can hear Messiah’s footsteps coming closer!

  17. Sheila, i am certainly glad you are out there, and thank you for participating on this page. What a valuable person you are!

    Think about who and what Blaise Pascal did 400 yrs ago when building a truth upon a truth- he used true lines to figure the shape of the object. If you take the true line of the coming of the messiah 2000 yrs ago, what can be built upon that is a clear line of the truth of it, and the perfection of it. If Shmuely can truly stand upon his line (and he is)- then he could argue that Michael Brown’s line may or may not be a true line. A truth upon a truth- we see clearly the geometrical shape forming. We are at the point in time that the true line will show up. Pascal would have loved to have seen these days, just think 400 yrs ago the king of France knew of one man he could ask for “the clear proof of God>”
    The king knew the one man he could ask was Pascal who built his thesis off of clear lines-
    Pascal answered “The Jews your Highness, The Jews>.”

    Just think 400 yrs ago if Pascal could answer that what do we see with the Jews today? With Israel today? Very clear lines….There is a cler line of the Messiah, if we only will look at the details.

  18. Jewish history is like a 6,000-piece puzzle. At the beginning you dump the pieces on the table and it makes no sense. But as we assemble piece after piece, a picture emerges. A picture that records the action of God in history. And there’s no chance or randomness here. Everything happens for a reason.
    By Jewish reckoning we have assembled almost all of these pieces and have only a few hundred left to go. History is moving toward a conclusion, its final destination.
