WASHINGTON – What happens when two “Saturday Night Live” alums get together for a stand-up comedy gig in Flint, Michigan?
They talk about Jesus.
That’s the scoop from tea-party doyenne Victoria Jackson about her reunion with fellow SNL cast-mate of the late 1980s and early 1990s Jon Lovitz last week, from which she urged all her fans to pray for America on the National Day of Prayer, May 1.
Noting that Lovitz always says, “You can’t be Jewish and Christian,” she pointed out that one of the keynote speakers at last Thursday’s event in Washington was Jonathan Cahn, bestselling author of “The Harbinger,” which is about to hit 150 weeks on the New York Times list.
The movie version of that message, “The Isiah 9:10 Judgment,” produced by WND, was the No. 1 faith film of 2012 and 2013. Cahn is Jewish – a messianic rabbi – known for his inspiring teachings that bring Christians to their feet all over the country.
Jackson quotes Cahn from a recent interview on WND-TV: “If ever America was ever in need of prayer, it is now. There is a pervasive sense among many believers that America is in grave danger of God’s judgment. Every day brings a milestone on the road of America’s moral and spiritual descent.”
“As I always say, ‘the Bible is the most Jewish book in the world. Jesus was Jewish, his disciples were Jewish, most of the authors and characters in the Bible are Jewish,’” writes Jackson.
“Some Jews believe Jesus is the Messiah. Other Jews are still awaiting the Messiah; they ignore the myriad Old Testament prophecies that Jesus fulfilled – born in Bethlehem, of a virgin, David’s seed, vinegar for thirst, died for sinners, 30 pieces of silver, etc. Complete List here. Fulfilled prophecies sermon here.”
She concludes with a scripture reference: “II Chronicles 7:14: “If My people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Victoria Jackson’s book, “Is My Bow Too Big: How I Went from Saturday Night Live to the Tea Party” and the video documentary of her appearance on the “WND Tea Party at Sea” cruise, are available at the WND Superstore as well.
