What is a One New Man Congregation?
by Messianic Rabbi Eric Carlson
What is a “One New Man” Messianic Congregation? It is a congregation that is bearing fruit which are Jewish people receiving Yeshua (Jesus). A common thread that weaves through and connects “One New Man” Congregations and Jewish evangelism is the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). “For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom” I Corinthians 1:22. Signs and Miracles only come through the Holy Spirit and revelation of the word also comes through the Holy Spirit! The KEY ingredient is the Holy Spirit! Those who are led of the Spirit produce the fruit of the Spirit which are souls for the kingdom. Strict religious adherence to tradition negates the move of the Spirit thereby killing the ability of a congregation to attract non-believing Jews and Gentiles alike.

Messianic Rabbi Eric Carlson and his wife Rabbitzin Barbara of Newport News Va., have been called to spread the Good News of Messiah Yeshua’s Grace and Glory in the United States and in the countries of the Former Soviet Union (having performed Gods work in Hungary, Russia, and the Ukraine).
Active in Aliyah, the world wide exodus of the Children of Israel back to Israel as prophesied in the Bible, Zion’s Sake has sponsored the return home of over 2,269 Jewish people from Russian and the Ukraine. Through a prophetic vision from God, they were called to spread the “Good News’ of the Jewish Messiah according to the Law of Evangelism; To the Jew First. To provoke the Jewish people to jealousy. To reach the lost and hurting through the Love of Messiah and to feed the starving and clothe the naked in Newport News, Virginia, America, and the Nations.
Rabbitzin Barb Carlson Leads the Zion's Sake dancers, a “One New Man” (Ephesians 2:15) Messianic Jewish Dance Team. They are dedicated to restoring Jewish and Davidic Dance. Many of their dances consist of the "circle dance" which represents unity. It is also traditional Judaic beliefs that demonic forces cannot penetrate a circle. They dance before the Lord, sowing praise and worship unto the God of Israel!
