God wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. He created laboratories for us to learn how. They are called families.

Picture of the Week 11/15/17

Perhaps the greatest lesson in studying Scripture is questions asked in one part of the book have answers and echoes in other parts – but the sound doesn’t come through clearly unless we lay down our preconceived notions and listen as a little child.

Publication Update: Just Waiting on Congress – Ten Parts in the King

We’re in that tedious part of the final stages of publication: we’ve done all we can do, and now we’re waiting on other people to do their part. Specifically, we’re waiting on the Library of Congress to issue us a control number. That’s the last thing before Ten Parts in the King goes to the printer. Then we get to work with the printer to make sure the proof is just right, and when we’re all satisfied, the print run begins.

Sounds tedious, doesn’t it? But fear not! Every day gets us one step closer to having this work available to the reading public. In the meantime, we’re gathering our thoughts for follow-on articles on this website. With Ten Parts in the King as the foundation, we hope to present a continuing series of posts to expand on subjects we just didn’t have opportunity to cover adequately in the book.

Thomas Jefferson was instrumental in establishing the Library of Congress as the national library of the United States. Now we’re only waiting on the LOC to record our book before it goes to print!

Keep watching this site! We’ll provide updates as the news comes in. In the meantime, if you’re inclined to help finance the first printing, click on the donate button below. We have had tremendous response in the last two weeks, and are only a few hundred dollars short of the full amount. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far!

To donate any amount, please click on the button below: That’s all for now! If you have any questions, please contact us at editor@tenpartsintheking.com. And, help us spread the word!

A Revolutionary Turn, part 2

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, November 6:

The things of God tend to overturn human standards of respectability. Isaiah said as much when he wrote:

It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall be your dread. Then He shall become a sanctuary; but to both the houses of Israel, a stone to strike and a rock to stumble over, and a snare and a trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Many will stumble over them, then they will fall and be broken; they will even be snared and caught. (Isaiah 8:13-15)

Did Isaiah write this about the Messiah? Luke, Paul, and Peter seem to think so since they reference this passage in their writings about Messiah Yeshua (Luke 2:34-35,Romans 9:32-33,1 Peter 2:7-8). Yet prevailing Jewish opinion would disagree – an opinion, by the way, which is rooted in centuries of convincing logic based on sound interpretation of Scripture.

So is Yeshua the Messiah, or not? That is the question Jews and Christians have each settled in their minds through the centuries. None seems to be able to convince the other, although the arguments on both sides are sound.

This is where we need the opinion of someone who has studied both sides of the question. And that is why we have asked Frank Houtz to return to The Remnant Road to continue the conversation we began with him on our last show. In his experience as a co-founder of Congregation Beit Minorah, Dry Bones Restoration Company, Kentucky Covenant Education Corporation, and Jefferson College at Pilot View, and as an Elder for B’ney Yosef North America, Frank has had ample opportunity to study the different approaches to the Scriptures and to Messiah from the Jewish and Christian/Messianic perspectives. What may surprise you is not what each side believes, but why and how those beliefs developed – from the same sources!

Frank will be with us during the second hour. In the first hour, Al and Barry will continue discussion about the monumental events happening around the world in this season, the centennial of history-changing developments that opened the way for the rebirth of the nation of Israel.

Join us for another exciting journey along 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.

Publication Update: Manuscript is Complete! – Ten Parts in the King

We took a major step forward this week with Ten Parts in the King. After months of work, with input from some very dedicated, knowledgeable, and helpful readers, the manuscript is complete!

What’s next? Glad you asked!

This week, we are working with Key of David Publishing to take care of those important legal and financial details to prepare the way for sending the manuscript to the printer. We already have an estimate for the initial print run, and we are very encouraged that it’s about $3,000 – about what we expected. Once we have half of that amount in hand, and have the copyright and other details settled, we can send the job off to the printer. After that, it should take about a month before the book is available.

We have had questions about when we’ll be accepting preorders. We expect to do that as soon as the book goes to the printer. If you are receiving our publication updates, you will be among the first to know!

How long before the book goes to the printer? That is a question you can help us answer!

Key of David is a small publishing company, and doesn’t (yet) have the funds on hand to cover even these modest printing costs. Therefore, we are asking for help from our readers in raising the money for the initial printing. 

To donate any amount, please click on the button below: 

Thanks to generous friends, we already have nearly $1000 in hand. Will you help us go the rest of the way? Join us in this important endeavor by making a donation toward the first printing. Any donations in excess of that amount will be rolled into successive printings. Consider this an investment, not only in Ten Parts in the King, but in the groundbreaking work that is the hallmark of Key of David Publishing! 

The last bit of news is that we are thinking about a book launching event or two. We’ll be able to fill in the details of when and where once we have an idea when the book will be published. For now, the thought is to have the book launching either in Columbia, South Carolina or in Charlotte, North Carolina – or maybe an event in each location!  Please let us know your thoughts!

That’s all for now! If you have any questions, please contact us at editor@tenpartsintheking.com. And help us spread the word!

A Revolutionary Turn, Part 1

This is the week that the world turned upside down.

No kidding. It’s the week of what may be the most significant set of anniversaries in modern history. In previous shows, we have talked about the number of important anniversaries happening in 2017. What we haven’t mentioned before today is that many of them happen this week. Consider this list:

  • October 31, 1517: Beginning of the Protestant Reformation, a shaking of Christianity that is still going on today, and which has had incalculable impact on the Jewish people and the restoration of all Israel.
  • October 31, 1917: Battle of Beersheba, when the Australian Light Horse led the way in defeating the Turkish Army and opening the road to the liberation of Jerusalem a few weeks later.
  • November 2, 1917: Balfour Declaration, in which the government of Great Britain committed to the establishment of a Jewish homeland, opening the way for rebirth of the nation of Israel a generation later.
  • November 7, 1917: Beginning of the Russian Revolution, which eventually led to creation of the Soviet Union – a historical process that eventually resulted in the return of hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews to Israel at the end of the century.

Al and Barry discuss all of these events and more during the first hour.

In the second hour, we welcome Frank Houtz of Winchester, Kentucky, to talk with us about a crucial topic summarized in this passage from Isaiah:

It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall be your dread. Then He shall become a sanctuary; but to both the houses of Israel, a stone to strike and a rock to stumble over, and a snare and a trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. (Isaiah 8:13-14 NASB)

Is this passage about Messiah, or God, or both? Why is there confusion? And why is this important? That is what we asked Frank to address. In his experience as a co-founder of Congregation Beit Minorah, Dry Bones Restoration Company, Kentucky Covenant Education Corporation, and Jefferson College at Pilot View, and as an Elder for B’ney Yosef North America, Frank has had ample opportunity to study the different approaches to the Scriptures and to Messiah from the Jewish and Christian/Messianic perspectives. What may surprise you is not what each side believes, but why and how those beliefs developed – from the same sources!

This topic is so big and so important that we will have Frank back next week to continue the conversation!

You will also hear an update from Mike Clayton from the Connect to Israel Tour. As with everything else in this particular show, the news he brings is something that could (and probably will) turn the world upside down.

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.

What Are These Young People Really Thinking?

Aside from all the technological wonders that absorb today’s youth, how are they different from older generations? Very different – and very much the same. This millennial generation is living in a world that has changed radically since the youthful days of their parents and grandparents, but they, like every generation before them, still faces the same challenges of entering adulthood and defining how their world should be shaped. Thus, while the specifics may be unique, the underlying reality is just as Solomon said:

That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one might say,
“See this, it is new”?
Already it has existed for ages
Which were before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10)

With Mike and Hanoch in Israel leading the Connect to Israel tour, Barry and Al begin the show with a conversation about inter-generational relations. Is there really an insurmountable gap between the rising generation and their parents and grandparents? What makes them unique? How can they find their way, and how can the older generations help – or at least not hinder them?

Cole Davis of On That Day Ministries joins us in the second hour to take the discussion to a new level: what are the spiritual dynamics intertwined with this millennial generation? The conversation takes a highly important turn as we examine how these spiritual dynamics are at work even now in Hebraic believers. In the pursuit of Torah knowledge, what have we left behind – and at what cost?

This may be the most important conversation we have yet had on The Remnant Road. You won’t want to miss it!

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!

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!
