“The King will reply, ‘Truly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the
least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”
The backdrop to the scripture above is found in Mathew 25:35, when the Son of Man comes and will Judge the nations according to how they treated his brethren.
So the obvious question arises, who are “the brethren” of the King of the Jews? The Jewish people of course! It is quite obvious that Yeshua is talking to the gentile sheep and goat nations that stand before him in Judgment, just after He returns to Jerusalem to sit upon His eternal throne of His father David.
The sheep on His right hand are rewarded generously as the King declares in vs.34: ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…’
The sheep received this inexpressible eternal reward for the following reasons, because of what they have done while they were alive in vs. 36:“ “For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.”
The sheep responded with amazement when they heard these words of the King. When did we see YOU hungry or thirsty, naked, sick or in prison and helped you?
Please pay attention to the answer of the King who sits as a judge over the nations in vs. 40:“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”
Do you get it? The judgment of the gentile nations and believers, in particular, is based on their treatment of the Jewish people, (His Brethren) especially in their time of persecution and suffering which the bible tells us will be the worst in all of world history before the King returns. It is called the time of Jacob’s trouble, also known as the Great Tribulation – Daniel 12:1-4, Jerimiah 30:7, Mathew 25:15-31, Revelation 12.
Is there any need to even mention the goats in this story? If so, why are they goats? They were supposed to be sheep, but there was one difference that excluded them from the King’s eternal Kingdom in vs. 41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
The goats responded with shock and contempt. Whendid we see YOU hungry or thirsty, naked, sick or in prison and we didn’t help you? I mean we called upon your name, we served you, we had weekly church services to teach others about you, what about our community food programs to feed the poor, we sacrificed all for you!
But the King will answer the goats in His judgment and say, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these (my brethren), you did not do it to Me.’
Isn’t it absolutely clear that Yeshua wanted His sheep to love, serve and lay down our lives in His name for “His brethren” according to the Flesh, the Jewish People? Personally, when I discovered that this was not only my calling as a follower of Yeshua but also my duty as His servant, the purpose of my Salvation became very clear and complete.
Outreach to Turkey after devastating Earthquake ends:
FZS was there almost immediately after the 7.7 earthquake struck and ministered to the hardest hit areas for outreach and aid relief. The first days we were with the IDF field hospital, but because of a terror threat they had to return to Israel earlier than expected. The rest of the time was spent in rural mountain areas where government aid was slow to reach. One memorable experience was working with the semi-underground church in Malatya in aid distribution. The believers from this fellowship touched my heart very much as they had 3 members including a German missionary who were allbrutally martyred by Muslim extremist several years prior and they refused to stop meeting and give into fear! For me, this was true example of real living faith!
Perhapsthis blurry photo sums up our time well in Turkey. Here you can see the happiness and smiles that a little love and caring can bring to the
faces of those who lost everything. PTL!

Of course, our humanitarian outreach continues at FZS in Jerusalem:
FZS in Talpiot, Jerusalem has always been the hub of our activities through our warehouse distribution center for new immigrants (Olim) and those in need such as single mothers, wounded terror victims and those recommended to us by social workers and different congregations in the Land. We have always viewed our aid outreach as just a “cup of cold water” in the name of Yeshua, that we might show His love through helping the Jewish people in their time of need. Nevertheless, it is also on our hearts to help all needy people regardless of who they are or what they believe in.
Here are some stories and pictures of those whomwe have recently helped.
Sharing the Word with Olga
Olga came to our attention from a friend who works at the Hadadas hospital when she saw a pregnant woman crying who was about to do an abortion. She was pregnant with twins and did not want to go through with it, but the father of the twins rejected her and she was alone. We were able to convince Olgato keep the “boys”, Praise God! As a result, FZS has been supporting her monthly to help pay for their rent and food. Recently, she asked for extra funds to pay the lawyer’s fees for the boys’ citizenship. The twins’ father has become abusive and recently she was forced to go the police after he hit her in the mouth. She had hoped that he might change his mind and accept her and the boys, but she now realizes that he does not want her nor the twins. Please continue to pray for Olga and the Twins.
Max, Ira who is pregnant and Liza needed help
Max and his family are Ukrainian refugees that were referred to us by social workers after they were robbed of all their money from the hotel safe where they were temporarily staying. It was all the money they had brought from Ukraine to start life anew in Israel. They needed funds urgently to help pay the first and last month’s rental deposit for an apartment and FZS was able to help them with funds to sign the contract. Max and the family are very grateful and now visits our center for clothing and hopefully our FZS Fellowship.
In closing, we would just like to say once again, THANK YOU very much for your faithful prayers and support that helps us to continue to bless the needy and those less fortunate in Yeshua’s name!
In His Love,
Bradley Antolovich and our FZS staff
