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


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.
