Summary

Sid Roth started Messianic Vision in 1977 with the desire to reach the world with the good news of Messiah. It is our passion to reach "the Jew first" (Romans 1:16). By following this "law of evangelism," God opens a supernatural door to reach greater numbers of Gentiles.

In 1996 Sid launched the It's Supernatural TV program featuring guests who have experienced extraordinary healings, miracles and personal encounters with God. In February 2017, we celebrated 40 years of ministry.

Mission statement

Messianic Vision uses the following to communicate its mission:

The Messianic Vision is more than a ministry or a program. It is a desire to reach with the good news of the messiah, "to the Jew first" (Rom. 1:16). Messianic Vision believes that the best way to evangelize all people is to proclaim the Word of God and demonstrate His power through the miraculous.


Statement of faith

We believe:

In the one and only living God - the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - the Creator of heaven and earth.
(Gen. 1:1; Isa. 42:5)

Yeshua (Hebrew for "Jesus") is Israel's promised Messiah and the Redeemer of the entire human race. By His life, death and resurrection, He fulfilled the messianic prophecies of the Old Covenant Scriptures related to Messiah's first coming. The divine Messiah, Yeshua is the fullest revelation of God to man.
(Isa. 7:14, 9:6-7, 49:6, 53:1-12; Psa. 16:9-11)

We believe in the triune nature of God - God the Father, God the Son (Yeshua), and God the Holy Spirit. God made man in His own image and endowed him with a longing for intimate fellowship with the Creator.
(Gen. 1:26, 2:7; Psa. 41:1-2)

Man's disobedience to God's revealed will caused a separation between man and God.
(Gen. 2:16-17; Isa. 59:1-2)

The only provision God made for reconciling man to Himself was through the atoning work of the Messiah, who died as the sacrifice for our disobedience and rose again, manifesting His victory over sin and death.
(Lev. 17:11; Isa. 53:1-12; 2 Cor. 5:19)

The Bible - both the Old and New Covenant Scriptures - is God's Word to man and the only reliable, safe guide to faith and conduct.
(Num. 12:6-8; Isa. 8:20; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)

All who repent from sin and accept God's message of salvation in the Messiah are born again of the Spirit of God. Faith in the Messiah as the mediator of the New Covenant makes us true children of God.
(Jer. 31:31-34; Ezek. 36:24-27; John 1:11-13)

The Holy Spirit indwells the heart of every born again believer. The baptism of the Spirit for anointed service is the positional right of every believer, but is appropriated as a faith experience distinct from the born again experience.
(Acts 8:15-17, 10:44-46, 19:1-6)

All of the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are intended for the body of believers during this age.
(1 Cor. 12:4-11)

The atonement in Yeshua includes both spiritual and physical healing. The blessings of obedience promised to Israel in the Mosaic Covenant are available to any believer under the New Covenant today.
(1 Pet. 2:24; Isa. 53:5; Psa. 103:3)

Those who are born of the Holy Spirit become members of the universal people of God, the Body of the Messiah. This one spiritual fellowship through the Messiah includes both Jews and Gentiles as equal members of this Body - One New Man in Yeshua.
(1 Cor. 12:12-13, 27; Eph. 2:14-16, 5:30-32)

The nation Israel is chosen by God to be a channel of blessing to all the nations on earth. The return of the Jewish people to their land is in fulfillment of biblical prophecy. The day will come when Israel as a nation will accept Messiah Yeshua. Then shall the Word of God go forth from Zion. After Messiah Yeshua returns, He shall establish His worldwide rule from Jerusalem. (Gen. 12:1-3; Isa. 11; Zech. 12:10, 13:1)

History

Sid Roth, a former account executive for Merrill Lynch, was raised in a traditional Jewish home. Yet, religious tradition provided no answers when he hit rock bottom in 1972. With his life out of control and his marriage in shambles, Sid was set free from demonic oppression through a supernatural encounter with Jesus. Immediately, he began to boldly proclaim Jesus as the Jewish Messiah.

In 1977 Sid started a ministry called "Messianic Vision" and a nationally syndicated radio broadcast by the same name. But the Messianic Vision is more than a ministry or a program; it is a desire to reach out with the good news of the Messiah, "to the Jew first" (Romans 1:16). This is not just God's historical order for spreading the gospel, but also His eternal spiritual order. When we follow this "law of evangelism," God opens a supernatural door to reach Gentiles as well. God's heart is to reach all people. His strategy is "to the Jew first."


Program accomplishments

There are many things we are doing that we can't talk about on our It's Supernatural! TV show and Messianic Vision radio broadcasts because we are trying to reach the unsaved. But we thought you might like to know some of these recent, exciting ministry highlights:

Through Project 77 we have mailed over 1.8 million copies of Sid's evangelistic book to Jewish families in North America.

We have also distributed 1.3 million copies of the Russian version of Sid's evangelistic book to Russian Jews in the former Soviet Union, Germany and the United States.

Our It's Supernatural! Network (ISN) is available free on every smartphone, tablet and computer in HD throughout the world.

Each week we receive testimonies of miracles and salvations from viewers and listeners around the world.

Our TV show, It's Supernatural!, airs 37 times a week in Israel. We also broadcast in other Middle Eastern countries like Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, we air 10 times a week in Arabic and English on the most viewed broadcast TV station for the Palestinian people.

The Russian-language version of It's Supernatural! airs on a Russian TV network in 182 countries and is the most viewed program on the network.

We have developed Jewish evangelistic websites in English, Hebrew and Russian.

Sid continues to conduct "Lectures on the Supernatural" worldwide and large numbers of Jewish people are being saved.

We are airing our show across the Spanish-speaking world.

In September 2016 we acquired Middle East Television which broadcasts the Good News to 25 countries in the Middle East with a potential audience of 150 million people.

In February 2017, we celebrated 40 years of ministry! Take a look back at all God has done for us.

For our Spanish speaking audience, we invite you to visit our Spanish site at essobrenatural.com, explore our Spanish courses at It's Supernatural School of Ministry, and watch our programs on our Spanish YouTube Channel.


Needs

Messianic Vision asks that people intercede daily for the following ministry needs and it asks for people to prayerfully consider fasting and praying each Friday for one or more of the needs listed below.

Pray that God strengthen Sid Roth, Messianic Vision staff, and intercessors, both mentally and physically, in the power of His might. Pray that they receive God's wisdom and discernment for making decisions about business, travel, ministry dates and times, and daily living details. Pray that God send angelic forces to gather the harvest; that Sid, staff and intercessors receive according to Matthew 6:6 for the Word, monies and time they have sown.

Hold up before God the working details of Messianic Vision's radio and television ministries. Especially pray for Janie, our Producer, to receive God's direction. Also pray for God to divinely appoint times and circumstances for our listeners, that they have ears to hear and that many would give to Messianic Vision for the promotion of the gospel (Haggai 2:7).

Pray God's blessing on the One New Man booklet that Sid Roth is writing. Pray that believers understand the importance of the One New Man revelation in this hour. Pray that pastors and entire cities come together in this revelation to restore the Glorious Church.

Ask the Lord to give us a spirit of discipline in prayer, worship, and fasting according to our personal callings. Pray that God abundantly provide Sid Roth with quiet times before Him.
