American Board of Missions to the Jews provides an efficient channel through which the Gospel message may be heralded to Israel of the world dispersion. We are in Jerusalem; we are in Poland, in Latvia. And we. have been forwarding financial sustenance to Jewish Christian brethren in hate-ridden Germany and in blasphemous Russia. All these world undertakings in addition to a nation-wide and well inte­ grated system of Gospel preaching here in America. We do not believe the true child of God 066 #$' to be asked to fellowship in prayer and gift in so important a ^sector of His work and program. On the contrary, we are convinced that ignorance, of God’s pur­ poses for Israel is the only reason why any child of God does not help Jewish Mission work. Sooner than we think, we .shall be ..caught up to be with Him in the air ; and together with the mystical 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel, we shall Join in that beautiful celestial chorus, thè song of Moses and of the Lamb. And our fellow singers in. that heavenly choir will be Jews ! And our blessed Lord will look to us with eyes ■ so pitiful, Jewish eyes, and ask, “What did you do for my brethren?” Then think of your joy, when you will be able to say, “Yes,, thank God, when I was down on the earth, I did love them, I did pray for them, and I did help with my money to tell them of their Messiah !” Use the coupon if the Lord so leads you. You will receive “The Chosen Peo­ ple” regularly each month, and thus be kept in touch with the work all the year round. May God reveal to you His will concerning the seed of Abraham, the scattered sheep of the House of Israel. AMERICAN BOARD OF MISSIONS TO THE JEW S, INC. 31 THROOP AVE., BROOKLYN, N. Y.
