Yom Kippur Scripture Meditations



October 2019
Abundant Atoning Blessings from Abundant Bread of Salvation:
Yom Kippur Scripture Meditations:
Yom Kippur is a solemn day when Jewish people reflect on their sin from the past year. They come humbly before God seeking forgiveness and His favorable “sealing” for the coming year. Messianic Jews understand that Yeshua (Jesus) is our perfect high priest who sacrificed His own blood and took it into the heavenly Holy of Holies on our behalf. With His blood, He made complete atonement for us.
Here are some Scriptures to help as you worship God on Yom Kippur. May your day be filled with humility, genuine repentance, gratitude and awe.
Yeshua, your atonement
The Jewish roots of the New Covenant come alive in Hebrews chapters 7–10 as they reveal how Yeshua is our high priest, sacrifice and atonement.
Consider what your sin cost Yeshua
* He humbled Himself to save you – Philippians 2:5–8
* He suffered fear, anguish and pain for you – Luke 22:41–44. Luke 22:63–65, Isaiah 53
* He was scarred more than any man – Isaiah 52:14
* He willingly gave His life “for the joy set before Him”: your reconciliation to God – Hebrews 12:1–3

Meditate on what YESHUA/Jesus’ sacrifice acquired for you
* Eternal life – John 3:16, 10:28
* Abundant life – John 10:10
* Peace with God – Romans 5:1
* Redemption – Ephesians 1:7–8
* Atonement – 1 John 2:2, 4:10
* The righteousness of God – 2 Corinthians 5:21
* You are a child of God – John 1:12
* You are a new creation – 2 Corinthians 5:17
* You cannot be separated from God’s love – Romans 8:35
* You are sealed for eternity in God – 2 Corinthians 1:21–22, Ephesians 1:13–14
* There is no longer any condemnation for you – Romans 8:1

Reflect on what Yeshua does for you
* He never leaves you – Matthew 28:20
* He intercedes for you – Hebrews 7:25
* He empowers and strengthens you – Philippians 4:13
* He heals you – 1 Peter 2:23–24, Isaiah 53:5
* He helps you when you are tested – Hebrews 2:18

May you have a sacred and holy Yom Kippur.

Thank you for your prayers for the eyes of our Jewish People to be opened as we daily serve them here in Israel.

To all our Precious friends in Messiah Yeshua,


We want to start this praise report news letter first, by blessing you with His Word, even as He is the Living Word. Read and proclaim this verse aloud personally for yourself. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah  29:11.



And with this above scripture verse, is my very personal life testimony of His faithfulness that I will now share with you. 

I was raised in a traditional but non-religious Jewish family in the San Fernando Valley in California. Before reaching my teens, I fell into a deceptive life of drug and alcohol abuse. As I reached the end of high school, God miraculously rescued me out of darkness to begin my new life of recovery and spiritual discovery with the Messiah Yeshua-(Jesus), in 1987. Incidentally or shall we say by divine appointment, as a result of my new faith, I felt called to reach out to those with similar afflictions and poverty, getting my certification as a drug and alcohol counselor as well my Psychiatric Nursing License. Glory to God in the highest for this testimony! 

Brian's past life as a teen. Now saved by His grace!

 On top of serving over 400 poor and needy people and Holocaust Survivors in our weekly Food Bag Distribution Center, Soup Kitchen, Humanitarian Biblical Trips, Spirit Filled Concerts and Orphanages, we also have a healthy relationship and outreach to a local Bible based Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center in Netanya. We provide monthly food for this rehab. center, plus clothes, shoes and Biblical counselling and teaching as needed. We are always amazed at the awesome testimonies that come from these once homeless and forgotten, that struggle with addictions and praise our Great Healer, when we see smiles upon their faces because of being set free, many coming straight out of years of being in prison. Hallelujah! CLICK HERE, to support and pray for our work and outreach to the broken and addicted in Yeshua's name!       
Please pray today for all the Israeli Drug Addicts and Alcoholics and for their salvation as we reach them with His love!
Yeshua Loves to Redeem His Children
2nd Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation. The old has passed away and behold, the new has come."


I am very happy to share an update regarding the Matching Grant Giving Opportunity. First of all, I want to thank all of you who gave into the Matching Grant to double your funds for July. We almost raised up to the half way mark of $50,000 for July. Our generous donor was so encouraged that he granted Abundant Bread of Salvation an extra 30 days for everyone to be able to give into this double your impact opportunity to reach over and beyond the $50,000 goal. So, please act now to be able to sow abundantly into this amazing opportunity, "For Such a time as this!"


As we prepare to end this prayer and update letter, there are two more exciting things about to take place. One is that all of Israel's beautiful children are officially back to school starting September 1st. This is our future generation that also need the love of Messiah so much. Please pray for them as they do their utmost under a ton of peer pressure and fear of war in some areas.

Secondly, as you read this, The Jewish New Year, 5780 (Rosh Ha Shanah), is upon us. 
Happy Jewish New Year! Hag Sameach!

How amazing that we can celebrate this fresh start by praying for our Jewish People and the work and impact of Abundant Bread of Salvation and see eternal results and fruit right before our eyes. Amen!

Abundant thanks and todah, for all your prayers and for your Double Impact Matching Grant gifts today.

Read below how you can double your blessing!

August 2019

Shalom Dear Ones in Messiah Yeshua,

This month, August, is an amazing time of rejoicing and new beginnings.  Sometimes having a fresh start comes with its challenges, however, when you know and see the hand of the Lord Yeshua moving with great favor, it is quite encouraging to our faith and walk with Him. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight."

We recently had our annual board meeting which consists of seven faithful, supportive and praying members.  Together, we represent native Israelis, American Jews and Ethiopian Jews.  They are all strong believers, intercessors, world-renowned Messianic musicians, local Israeli congregational leaders and Biblical Hebrew teachers.  I am very proud to have such a team that stands with the vision and future of Abundant Bread of Salvation in practical prayer, encouragement, and support (both in spiritual and financial accountability.)  This enables us to always have integrity and the official approval and certification from the Israeli government of non-profits. 

It was mentioned in our board meeting of the great need for physically expanding the size and location of our crowded office and outreach headquarters.  Our current location has very challenging limitations, namely, our weekly soup kitchen that is packed wall-to-wall with various, necessary items. Many times we must turn people away because of lack of space.  Secondly, we have to cook and prepare all our meals off-site because of lack of a professional kitchen to be able to cook such elegant meals for our precious poor and needy people and Holocaust survivors.  All the dry food that we prepare bags for over 400 people every month many times lie in the middle of the isle walkway disturbing our regular flow of operation.  Our clothes racks and shelves must be kept on the sides and moved each week for proper free distribution and the tables and chairs need to be set up and taken down because of the multiple purposes of our outreach center.

However...A wonderful miracle has happened for you to participate inShortly after explaining to our board about the great need for expansion, we had a donor step up and share that they are willing to do a Matching Grant Giving Opportunity!  This donor stated that they are "willing to match every dollar donated," which would double the impact of your giftfor the next 30 days!  This means that if you give $25 dollars it would instantly turn into $50 and if you give $100 it would instantly turn into $200 and a $1000 would turn into $2000, etc.!  This generous donor is willing to match every dollar up to $50,000 for your donation today!   Please take advantage of this opportunity to double your impact today! Click HERE!
We are also happy to announce that we were able to expand the distribution of furniture and clothes to the poor and needy in a most unusual way. Because we were recently forced to move our humanitarian, 40-foot container, the new location is actually much lower costing than the previous location, which allows us to expand more support to the poor, needy and Holocaust survivors.  Glory to God indeed!  
New Container Location in Netanya_
New Container Location in Netanya_
Sometimes we wonder, are we doing the right thing?  We are then forced to be on bended knee, acknowledging the God we serve, that He is our provider!

The Word of God must be proclaimed here in Luke 6:38, which says, "Give and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and flowing over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Thank you for your prayers and support.  You are His hands and feet helping to bring the Good News of Messiah in the darkest places.

Arise and Shine Dear Supporter of Abundant Bread of Salvation!

We are now well into the summer heat and want to take this time to speak cool blessings upon you as you travel or enjoy some vacation time with family and friends. We, here at Abundant Bread of Salvation, work tirelessly year-round to bring the greatest impact possible to our poor and needy people, both in Word and with our practical deeds. James 1:27 says, "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world."

We consider our outreach to the orphans as one of the highest priorities in the work we do and so, this newsletter's main focus will be for these children and the facility that so amazingly cares for them and their spiritual needs. As the scripture states above, we are called as believers in Yeshua to become personally involved in the lives of these orphans in a tangible way in their distress. Abundant Bread of Salvation has been reaching out for years, visiting, bringing practical aid, and doing prayer walks with those that are willing to join us on location at the orphanage. Please come and volunteer with us and be involved in all the above activities and much, much more!

Please send an email today to: volunteer@abundantbread.com, to request your volunteer application. Psalm 102:13 says, "You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her as the set time has come."

Some of the practical things we have been able to do for the orphanages because of your financial help and prayers are as follows:
Y  Taking at least 80 orphan girls on a Biblical trip so see and experience their heartland in the Galilee. Absolutely life-changing!
Y  Purchasing new shoes on several occasions for all the orphans.
Y  Purchasing new clothes and suitcases for the older orphans to enable them to visit host families for Shabbat weekend.
Y  Purchasing school supplies and new bed sets for the new school year on several occasions as well as during the year supplies.
Y  Providing both new and used furniture to bless the hallways and bedrooms of the orphans.
Y  Providing shoeboxes filled with all kinds of practical surprise gifts, toys and hygienic products. Each one received individual boxes filled with different products.
Y  Taking personal time with believers to visit with them as well as bringing in special talent, music and ballet performances by believers. Absolutely life changing!

It says in Proverbs 31:8-9, "Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy."
We are called to speak up for those who need an advocate. As an advocate, your donations and prayers can transform an orphan's future for eternity. Just think about that for a few seconds.


On one of our recent visits with a group of 20 Believers to the orphanage, the question was asked, "Can one of these precious ones be adopted?" The answer is YES! Your monthly financial gift can go towards supporting many of these precious ones. Please pray about the largest monthly gift you are able to sacrifice! Get your synagogue, church, family and friends involved so that these fragile orphans may see our good works and glorify our Father in Heaven.

Thank you ahead of time for your generosity, support, prayers, and for coming to volunteer to hold, hug and embrace one of these orphans.

June 2019
Shalom, Precious Ones of Abundant Bread of Salvation,

We want to take this time to bless you with good health and long life in Messiah Yeshua. It does say in Deuteronomy 5:33, "You shall walk in all the way which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess." On that note, we want to focus this newsletter on the expanding work of practically blessing our precious Holocaust survivors.
We have an urgent Kingdom matter that we must bring to your attention. As many of you know, a couple years ago, we started the Adopt-A-Holocaust Survivor program in order to personally connect believers in Yeshua (Jesus), and to be able to help them financially every month in paying for the most basic necessities (food, dental care, optical help, special help with the loss of hearing and more.) This vision started when over and over again the Survivors would come to me with requests and receipts that I just could not financially fulfill. It always saddened me and many times I would just drop to my knees and weep and pray for a miracle. Just as important in this vision is the urgency of reaching them with the Good News of our Messiah and see them come to salvation before it is too late! Acts 20:35 says, "In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Yeshua (Jesus), how He himself said, it is more blessed to give than to receive."  
Please Adopt any of the above Survivors and others not shown here, today!
We are happy to say that we have monthly sponsors for many of them, however, we still have many dozens that have their personal profile marked as "no sponsor." We want to give you the opportunity to join this urgent vision and personally connect you with these precious souls. If the Holy Spirit is prompting your heart, please do not waste any time! Nearly every month, we are hearing of one or more of them passing on into eternity. The opportunity to reach them is now and we are doing our part here in Israel by physically reaching out to as many as we can. 
Will you join us and "Adopt-A-Survivor" today? Just as important would be for you to share this urgent newsletter with your family and friends that care and pray for the salvation of Israel. Psalm 71:9 says, "Do not cast me off in the time of old age and do not forsake me when my strength fails me."
This news is so important to my team, thus our reason for dedicating this entire newsletter to the subject, plus we have made a special video for you to have an insider's view of adopting a Holocaust survivor. CLICK HERE, to view this new video clip on our website! Isaiah 46:4 says, "Even to your old age I am He and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, I will bear, I will carry and I will save." For instructions on how to adopt, visit our website at www.abundantbread.com, or call us at (213) 265-9796.
This month, we celebrate another Biblical Jewish holiday called Shavuot known as Pentecost when the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh), fell on the Jews in Jerusalem gathered from all the nations in Acts 2:1-4. It is also very significant because of the harvest, first fruits and the giving of the Torah. This same Holy Spirit is alive and active through the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation pouring out to our precious Holocaust survivors the hope of eternity. Thank you for standing with us to reap a fruitful harvest! To Him be the glory forever and ever amen!
