Biblical Significance of Israel, part 02

April 2, 2021

Christian Zionism is often accused of fostering a fear of Muslims and other non-western Christians. By understanding Israel’s role in the last days, that accusation can be countered, and believers will come to a better understanding of “The Biblical Significance of Israel.”

To Live is Messiah
The Lord has a powerful message of encouragement, joy and love for all believers in the epistle of Philippians. The theme is a simple one, "To Live is Messiah!" All born-again believers need to be living our lives for Yeshua! This means to give over all aspects of our lives to the Lord Yeshua. He needs to become our everything in all things. The Apostle Paul brings this message out as he pens Phil. 1:21, "For to me, to live is Messiah, and to die is gain." Paul makes this message very clear but he does it with a strong leaning to his Jewish lifestyle and culture. Dr. Hill's teaching will inspire you to discover all the Jewish roots of Paul's writing. With powerful insight, Dr. Hill takes you verse by verse and keyword to keyword through this dynamic commentary.

Gary Derechinsky discusses an alarming trend that has resurfaced in recent years and has even made the headlines. Even though the United Nations, in its designation of January 27 as an annual day of commemorating the victims of the Holocaust, has rejected any denial of the Holocaust as an historical event, there are still national leaders that support Holocaust denial. Though this is a difficult subject, Pastor Derechinsky feels it warrants discussion.

About Dr. Gary Hedrick

Gary Hedrick has been president of CJF Ministries (CJFM) in San Antonio, Texas, since August of 1988. Prior to that time, he was on the ministry’s board of directors and served as a part-time CJFM field representative. In the early to mid-1970s, Gary had been a minister of youth and music in two Atlanta-area Baptist churches. He later moved to Illinois, where he became associate pastor of the 1,500-member Bayview Baptist Church in Washington, Illinois (1976-77) and met his bride-to-be, Marcia Lee Goldsmith (they were married in 1977). After a term of service as a church planter with the home missions board of the Evangelical Mennonite Conference (1978-80), Gary became the founding pastor of Liberty Bible Church (IFCA) in Eureka, Illinois (1980-88), where Rev. Tom Zobrist is the pastor today.


Gary is a graduate of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina (BA in Bible; minor concentrations in speech and Koine Greek) and was awarded an honorary doctor of divinity degree (DD) in May of 2003 from Antioch Baptist Bible College & Seminary in Marietta, Georgia—the school that bestowed this same degree on a young Jewish Christian evangelist named Charles Halff 35 years earlier (almost to the day). Gary is a member of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) at Boston University, the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS), and IFCA International. He has also served as North American coordinator for the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE), a worldwide network of ministries specializing in reaching Jewish people with the Good News of Jesus the Messiah. His articles appear regularly in the bimonthly publication, Messianic Perspectives, and he is a speaker on the Messianic Perspectives radio network (www.cjfm.org).


Gary and Marcia make their home in San Antonio. Their older daughter, Elizabeth, is married to Brian Nowotny (MDiv, Liberty University) and they have four children, Emily, Owen, Samuel, and Vivian. The Hedricks' son, Michael, is married to a psychologist, Rachel, and he is pursuing a Ph.D. in theology from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. They have a son, Benjamin, and daughter, Eliana. Gary and Marcia’s younger daughter, Sarah, is a graduate of Baylor University and is a civilian employee of a military contractor at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio.
