RACHELLE'S COHEN'S BIO
Rachelle was born in New Zealand to Jewish parents of Russian descent, and now makes her home in Australia. After accepting Yahshua as her Messiah in 1988 she had the desire to establish ‘Messiah Ministries’ in 1995, with a vision of building bridges of reconciliation between the Jewish people and the Church. Through her work in Messiah Ministries she has taught with new insight of the restoration of God’s people where relationships have now developed into a greater understanding of God’s plan for all His children, both Jew and Gentile.
She felt a great call on her life to share Messiah with the Israelites; those directly affected by decades of war, terrorism and isolation. Therefore, Rachelle spent two years in United States and in Israel where she assisted the victims of terrorism.
After a dramatic experience in the Philippines concerning her daughter Michelle, who was lost out in the ocean for three days, Rachelle with her daughter Michelle wrote an account of the amazing salvation of the Lord. This book originally titled A MIGHTY TEMPEST then was changed to ‘SAVED AT SEA’ has been published and distributed in many countries. This incredible autobiography of having of 100% faith in the midst of a storm was released in the USA by Tyndall Publishing. It also featured in Readers Digest book section, which was translated into ten different languages.
Rachelle has also ministered God’s eternal truth in Africa, where the people hungered for the last day’s revelation of the knowledge of the living God. She has been invited to speak at congregations throughout Australia, Asia and New Zealand and just recently returned from four months of international speaking engagements bringing forth prophetic revelations from a Hebrew prospective. Whilst living in Melbourne, Rachelle attended a conference held for the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. The Prime Minister challenged the people of Melbourne, Australia to speak the truth about Israel’s eternal inheritance of their homeland and dispel the lies and deceptions that flooded the media. This powerful speech inspired Rachelle to write the booklet entitled, ‘ISRAEL GOD’S WITNESS.’ This booklet gives an in depth Biblical and historical account of the everlasting Covenant that God has made with His ancient people.
In 1998, Covenant People Publishing was created to produce her latest book ‘THE SOURCE’ Abraham’s Covenant People. This is a Biblical study manual for the teaching of the Church about the Hebraic roots of their faith. This has been acknowledged as a valuable resource for anyone searching for the true path on the highway to holiness. Rachelle has recently completed a series of booklets to reveal the truth to her Jewish family worldwide; these booklets exhort the written word of God and through the Scriptures she explains convincingly who the Jewish Messiah is! These four books are called ‘Hear ‘O’ Israel – Prophetic Epistles to the Jews’. Rachelle is now dedicated and focused on promoting the truth of the one new man to both Jews and Christians to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah and restore biblical truth to all God’s people. She was recently recognized by her peers for her tireless dedication and commitment and was recently ordained as a credible teacher of God’s Word for today.
