What is the difference between these and the B’nei Menashe?

What a fitting way to end the week – and find another footnote to our forthcoming book, Ten Parts in the King (https://tenpartsintheking.com/)! Thank you, Margot, for this timely and encouraging word!

What is the difference between these and the B’nei Menashe?

This was the question that Christine Darg, from Jerusalem TV, asked when she first saw the three Mizos that had accompanied me. We were in the UK and the two girls had missionary visas so the could take the gospel back to the Welsh people, of whom they owed such a great debt. The man was a pastor and teacher at a bible college in Birmingham.

My reply was, “Nothing, except they haven’t converted to Judaism yet, they’re still Christian.”

“What!” she exclaimed, “why hadn’t I been told.” This was her reaction after ascertaining from the three Mizos present that it was indeed the case. The B’nei Menashe were simply a subset of the Mizos [or Kuki, if they come from Manipur] that were no longer Christian, but had converted to Judaism.

Each of the Mizos knew someone who had…

Uncovering the Secret Things

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, October 16:

One of the last things Moses explained to the people of Israel was this:

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)

When we unpack this bit of truth, we realize that anything we can know about God must come from what He explains to us. That’s what revelation is all about – God revealing, or uncovering, things that we had not seen or known before.

Another thing we understand from Moses’ word is the reason for revelation: so that we may “do all the words of this law.” The Law, of course, is the Torah – the unchanging standard of righteousness by which the Creator intended us to live. Our job as human beings is to study the Torah and the rest of the Word of God so that we can live as He intended.

Ardelle Brody has made a habit of digging truth out of the Torah. Her commentaries, published through Living Waters Fellowship, have enriched the lives of many people around the world. To read Ardelle’s commentaries, and sign up to receive them by email. go to this link:

How does Ardelle study the Bible? What motivated her to begin a life of biblical scholarship that is blessing her readers? That’s what we will find out when she joins us on The Remnant Road!

The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.

After the Fox! Two New Projects About the Torah Awakening

Has anyone noticed The Barking Fox hasn’t posted much in recent months? It may be that the only one who has noticed is your humble author. Aside from self-generated deadlines and publication goals, there is no pressure to maintain the pace of posting up to three times each week. That’s very good when other surprising opportunities appear out of nowhere.

Two such unexpected opportunities arrived last spring: a new radio show, and a new book.

Reunion Roadmap

The radio show is Reunion Roadmap, the weekly broadcast by B’ney Yosef North America (BYNA). As reported here, Reunion Roadmap features high-quality worship music, encouraging testimonies of Torah followers from around North America, and uplifting teaching by BYNA’s Elders.

The show came into existence at the invitation of Eddie Chumney, founder of Hebraic Heritage Ministries. He had the idea of establishing Hebraic Roots Radio as an internet broadcasting forum for teaching, worship music, and more. Eddie’s invitation came as we were praying about how to proceed with our vision of connecting the people of the emerging House of Ephraim here in North America. It took two months to establish and refine the concept of the show and prepare for our first broadcast in mid-June. Now Reunion Roadmap is on the air every Saturday and Sunday evening at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Hebraic Heritage Radio, and Saturday at 9:00 p.m. Pacific on Hebrew Nation Radio. Podcasts of the show are available on the BYNA web site at:

https://bneyyosefna.com/category/byna-radio-reunion-roadmap/.

As you may imagine, being part of a dynamic production team preparing a pre-recorded radio show each week is a time-consuming process. That, however, is not the only project eating into the time and energy previously invested in blog posts. The other major project is –

Ten Parts in the King: The Prophesied Reconciliation of God’s Two Witnesses

My friend and colleague Pete Rambo, creator of the blog, natsab.com, had an idea early in 2014 to write a book, “articulating and defending from Scripture the message of ‘The Prophesied Reconciliation of God’s Two Witnesses.’” Pete made that statement in an article he wrote as the inaugural post on our new website, Ten Parts in the King (https://tenpartsintheking.com/).

We created the web site to promote our forthcoming book, Ten Parts in the King: The Prophesied Reconciliation of God’s Two Witnesses. It took over three years to come to the point when we could actually write the book, but we finally realized early this spring that the time had arrived. We have worked all summer to write this important work that explains from Scripture who the Two Witnesses are, what they have to do with the Torah Awakening among Christians, and why they are essential to the Kingdom process of redemption.

Who are the two witnesses? We believe they are none other than the House of Judah and the House of Israel, the parties mentioned in the famous New Covenant in Hebrews 8:8-12 and Jeremiah 31:31-34. That Covenant, as explained by Jeremiah, is this:

“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34 NASB, emphasis added)

Our years of study, first as Christians in the traditional church and now as Torah-honoring followers of Messiah Yeshua, has brought us to the conclusion that God’s plan of redemption involves two parts of His covenant nation of Israel: the Jewish House of Judah, and the non-Jewish House of Israel (also known as the House of Joseph and House of Ephraim). The Two Houses are two witnesses YHVH has established to share with the world two distinct testimonies of His ability and willingness to redeem all of humanity.

How does this work? That’s what this book explains!

Our intent is to have Ten Parts in the King available by the end of this year (2017). Even now we are going through that tedious, yet necessary, process of the final copy editing to get the manuscript ready for print. If you would like to know more, visit the web site! There you can sign up to receive publication updates, news about preorders, and notifications of new articles and features. In fact, you can already see how we came up with this peculiar name, Ten Parts in the King. That story is in an excerpt from the book posted here:

https://tenpartsintheking.com/2017/10/10/pictured-in-a-parable/#more-112

And that’s what The Barking Fox has been doing all summer! You may not see a return to the frequency of posts as in recent years, but that’s because Pete and I have combined our efforts to do our part in our God’s redemptive Kingdom process!

Sukkotin’

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, October 9:
What are you doing for Sukkot – the Feast of Tabernacles? The Jewish people have celebrated Sukkot for over three thousand years – finding creative and meaningful ways to mark this special appointment with the Creator. The Torah Awakening among non-Jews has now added a number of new traditions from Ephraimites and others around the world who have begun to take seriously the commandment to mark this time with great joy:
You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress. And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates. Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice. (Deuteronomy 16:13-15)
In this show, Mike and Al guide us through a tour of Sukkot at two different locations in the Southeastern USA. You may be surprised at who turns up as our guests!

Ten From the Nations

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, October 2:

One of the end-times prophecies that is getting more attention these days is from Zechariah:

Thus says the Lord of hosts, “In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'” (Zechariah 8:23)

What exactly does this mean? Are all these people from the nations going to become Jewish? Or does it have something to do with the Torah Awakening among non-Jews? Why are all these people from the nations coming to an appreciation of the Torah, and is there some connection to the final redemption?

Pondering these questions motivated Rivkah Lambert Adler to compile a book about it. The book is called, appropriately, Ten from the Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews. In it she presents testimonies from over 40 contributors, most of whom are non-Jews who have begun to observe the Torah. Rivkah’s book is one of the first attempts to investigate this awakening – not so much to explain it, but to document the breadth and depth of what is happening worldwide. She joins us in the second hour of the show to tell us what she has learned.

To find out more about Ten From the Nations, visit Rivkah’s web site:

http://www.tenfromthenations.com/

Ten From the Nations will be published in October 2017. Sign up from email updates to learn about when and where it will be available!

Even So, A Good Report

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 25:

Jeremiah 31, the chapter that contains the promise of a New Covenant, begins with this word of hope:

Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall take your tambourines, and go forth in the dance of the merrymakers. Again you shall plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant, and shall enjoy the fruit. For there shall be a day when sentinels will call in the hill country of Ephraim: ‘Come, let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.'” (Jeremiah 31:2-6)

This passage contains some surprises. First of all, it links the New Covenant of redemption to Israel’s restoration to the Promised Land. Second, and perhaps most important, this prophetic promise is being fulfilled right now!

Rabbi Moshe Goldsmith and his wife, Leah, bring a personal testimony of how this prophecy is being fulfilled. As long time residents of the Itamar community in the Shomron (Samaria), they live in the very place where Jeremiah’s words promise the planting of vineyards and the joyful return to Zion at the appointed times of the Lord.

But the sentinels of Itamar, and in other communities of Judea and Samaria (the region much of the world knows as the “West Bank”), often have less joyful reports to announce. Itamar has frequently experienced tragic losses since its foundation in 1984. Those losses include the entire Fogel family, murdered in their beds by Arab assailants in March 2011.

If life in Itamar is so dangerous, why do people stay there? That is what we will learn from Moshe and Leah. Expect a good report from the Land of Israel from people who know it well.

Forgotten No More

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 18:
Among those wise sayings of King Solomon is this one:
Do not move the ancient boundary which your fathers have set. (Proverbs 22:28)
Solomon took this word directly from a Torah commandment – a commandment that comes with a curse for those who choose not to abide by it (Deuteronomy 19:14, 27:17). Tragically, the record of human history is one of blatant disregard for boundaries. This edition of the Remnant Road probes into one of those violations of boundaries that occurred in the United States. In 1838, the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Seminole peoples were removed from their homes in the Southeast and relocated to what Oklahoma. It is an ugly chapter of American history, rightly called the Trail of Tears.
Jesse Running Bear is among many First Nations people who are raising awareness of the Trail of Tears to honor those who suffered dishonor in ages past, and to heal a breach that persists to this day. He and many others will gather on September 17 at Woodbury, Tennessee, to walk part of the Trail of Tears in a commemorative act of protocol. He returns to the Remnant Road to share his understanding of the awakening of the First Nations to regain their identity and the place of authority the Creator assigned them on this continent.
Hanoch Young will join us as well during our first hour, bringing another timely word from Israel. How does Israel connect with First Nations people in America? Listen and find out. You may be surprised!

Seeking Higher Ground

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 11:

Hurricanes are bad news. Or are they?

To those who have lost homes, property, livelihood, and loved ones, it is very hard to find anything good about a monster storm like Hurricane Harvey. A common question might be, “Where was God in all that?”

John McQuary can help us find the answer. He and his wife, Glenda, endured one of the worst storms that has ever come ashore in Texas. Their Houston neighborhood suffered severe flooding, and yet their home remained intact. John will explain, the Almighty’s provision not only during the storm, but in the years leading up to it, positioned the them in such a way to remain safe, and to begin coordinating recovery efforts as the flood waters began to recede.

This is a very special Remnant Road program. John’s congregation, Becoming One Stick in His Hand, is at the center of recovery work in Houston, even though many among them are also in need.

How can you help? And how could you help prepare for the hurricanes even now blowing in from the Atlantic? We will get John’s perspective on these and many more questions in our second hour, and in our first hour will have another first-hand report from Hanoch in Israel.

Diligently Teaching Our Children

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 4:

Children do not automatically develop a biblical worldview. Like all worthy endeavors, training up our children in the way they should go requires active participation, wisdom, effort, patience, creativity, and a large measure of fun.

This is something Tyler Dawn Rosenquist knows from her years of experience as an educator, author, and Mom. She joins us on The Remnant Road to share her insights about instilling Torah principles in young people to prepare them for life. Many of these insights have found their way into Tyler’s five books, the newest of which is Context For Adults: Sexuality, Social Identity and Kinship Relations in the Bible, Volume 3 in her Context For Kids series. Check our her Context for Kids website (http://contextforkids.com/), and her blog, The Ancient Bridge (http://theancientbridge.com/).

Tyler will be with us in the second hour. In the first hour, expect a continuing discussion by Mike, Barry, and Al about the context of Hebraic revival, and an update from the Land of Israel by Hanoch!
