MR No. 35—How to Win Jews Through our Literature

[Release requested by S. A. Kaplan for use in a tract.]

The time has come when the Jews are to be given light. The Lord wants us to encourage and sustain men who shall labor in right lines for this people; for there are to be a multitude convinced of the truth, who will take their position for God. The time is coming when there will be as many converted in a day as there were on the day of Pentecost, after the disciples had received the Holy Spirit. 1MR 137.1

The Jews are to be a power to labor for the Jews; and we are to see the salvation of God.—Manuscript 66, 1905, 13. (“The Need of Home Religion, May 25, 1905.) 1MR 137.2

There is to be true, sincere missionary work done for the Jews. A little is being done, but it is as nothing compared with what might be done. There is a decided failure to take hold of this work as we ought. Let the people of the Lord meditate and pray over this matter. Letter 42, 1912, p. 1. (To “Dear Brethren,” November 6, 1911.) 1MR 137.3

We are plainly taught that we should not despise the Jews; for among them the Lord has mighty men, who will proclaim the truth with power.—Manuscript 87, 1907, 4. (“Our Duty toward the Jews,” August 16, 1907.) 1MR 137.4

The work Christ came to do in our world was not to create separating barriers and constantly thrust upon the people the fact that they were wrong.... Nor does Paul proclaim to the Jews a Messiah whose work is to destroy the old dispensation, but a Messiah who came to develop the Jewish economy in accordance with the truth.—Manuscript 87, 1907, 2. (“Our Duty toward the Jews,” August 16, 1907.) 1MR 137.5

We must get away from our smallness, and make larger plans. There must be a wider reaching forth to work for those who are nigh, and those who are afar off.... Let there be special efforts made for the enlightenment of the Jews. Every soul converted causes joy in the heavenly courts.—Manuscript 87, 1907, 8. (“Our Duty toward the Jews,” August 16, 1907.) 1MR 138.1
