Yad L’Achim Film Warns Soldiers of Missionaries in the ArmySeptember 08, 2022
An unprecedented film that was released this week by Yad L’Achim warns IDF soldiers of missionaries who were drafted after receiving special training on how to preach Christianity in the army.
The need for the cautionary film became evident after Yad L’Achim revealed a few months ago the existence of an “evangelical combat order for the messianic soldier” put out by the Tzofen organization. This “order” explains to members of the “Messianic Jews” cult how to preach Christianity to soldiers.
It begins: “Dear Soldier, Military service is a special, challenging time filled with opportunity for the believing soldier. The day-to-day interaction in the army opens many doors to preach the gospel… this combat order is meant to give practical tools for how to preach.”
In addition, filmed testimony reaching Yad L’Achim points to another group called Netiva that trains messianic soldiers to hold onto their Christian faith and even to get other soldiers to join them. In one excerpt, a staffer of the organization is seen calling on soldiers to come to a Christian religious event, adding, “Invite your non-believing friends.”
In light of this, Yad L’Achim produced a special film warning soldiers, those doing regular duty and those in reserves, of the activities of missionary soldiers and officers wearing a mask of deceit and lies to conceal their true identity.
“Imagine a group of faithful Christians who believe in J. trying to lure IDF soldiers to convert to Christianity,” says the narrator in the Yad L’Achim film. “Does that sound like a horror film? Insane? But it captures what’s happening in the IDF in 2022!
“Messianic Christians, the American church, and devout Christian groups like ‘One for Israel’ are investing millions to attract IDF soldiers. The missionaries look like Israeli Jewish soldiers, but engage in missionary activities and Christian preaching at bases.”
The Yad L’Achim film ends with a call to soldiers to report this activity when they encounter it: “Dear IDF soldier, you are Jews and were drafted into the IDF to protect the Jewish state! Have you seen this kind of activity? Report it to your personal commander or call us at *9234.”
Soldiers, beware! Missionaries in the IDF. A special film sounds the alarm.
