Israel’s Restoration

 Two Sticks Forming 011st B’Ney Yosef (Children of Joseph) National Congress.  Proceedings of the First Congress convened by believers in Yeshua acknowledging their identity as Ephraimites of the House of Joseph and connection with the exiled Northern Kingdom of Israel.   The Congress took place May 25-27, 2015, at the Eshel HaShomron Hotel in Ariel, Israel.

ARI 01Alliance of Redeemed Israel (ARI).  ARI welcomes you to the reunion of both the houses of Israel, to the place where the two sticks of Ephraim and Judah—and their companions—are being made one stick in the Father’s hand! (Isaiah 8:14; Ezekiel 37:15-28).  We desire to see all Israel restored in the Messiah.  Our hope is to bring great and wonderful changes to Ephraim, to non-Jewish Israel, and help them be a blessing to their Jewish brothers.  In this way, we seek to help build up the Father’s two chosen families, to help them to know that He has not forsaken nor forgotten either one of them—and that He never will! (Jeremiah 33:24-26).

Awakening the One New Man 01Awakening the One New Man.  Whether you are a Jewish person wondering about your connection to people who believe Yeshua is the Messiah, or a Christian who has accepted Him as your Savior you are called.  We are called by God to join together.  God’s plan is for all His children, Jew and Gentile, to join together in prayer, worship, and in righteous acts of service to our community.  By uniting in acts of compassion we are releasing the favor of God and changing the course of each community to focus on worthy causes.  The pathway to peace requires us to overcome our differences and join forces under the banner of the Kingdom of God.  Make the difference.  Be the One New Man.

B'ney Yosef National Shabbat 01B’Ney Yosef National Shabbat.  An idea whose time has come!  The B’ney Yosef (Children of Joseph) National Shabbat is a monthly gathering in North Georgia based on the promise of Hosea 1:9-11 that brings people from fellowships, congregations, and homes to express and declare that we are the people of Northern Israel.

Beit Yaaqov 01Beit Yaaqov.  World Union of the Lost Tribes from Israel, Yehudah and Ephraim and their friends in the reconciliation with the Jews under the Divine Mandate of Messiah Ben Yoseph who we love to call Yeshua Rabbeinu our Mashiach.  President: Gaddi Ephrayim.  Representative:  Ariel van Kessel.  For information please contact Beit-Ya’aqov Representative Ariel van Kessel, Email: watchmenfromisrael@beityaaqov.org, Mobile: +972 545683031, Int. Regd. no: 26538, Address:  Rechov Ein-Karem 10b, 95744 Jerusalem, Israel.

Brit-Am 01Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations.  Ten out of the Twelve Tribes of Israel were exiled and lost their identity.  Their descendants are now to be found amongst Western Peoples.  This is proven from the Bible, Talmud, and Rabbinical Sources as well as from Secular Studies in Ancient History, Archaeology, Mythology, Linguistics, and related fields.  The Prophets spoke of this.  Peoples that emerged from the British Isles (including North America) represent Joseph.  The Jews of the State of Israel and the Diaspora are Judah.  Joseph and Judah are destined to re-unite!  The Tribes will be united in One Kingdom.  Each Tribe shall dwell in its own territory.  This information deserves to be studied and internalized.

Etz Bney Yosef 01Etz B’Ney Yosef can be translated as the stick (or tree) of Joseph.  Ezekiel 37:19 reads:  “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will put them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.'”  We believe that in these End Times, God is fulfilling this prophecy.  

Hebrew Nations Radio 01Hebrew Nation Radio.  Building a nation, not a denomination.  Hebrew Nation Radio is a gathering place for those who believe in and practice Biblical living and culture as expressed through Torah and Messiah.

House of David Ministries 01House of David Ministries, a Hebraic and Apostolic itinerant teaching and worship ministry focused on bringing Jewish and Gentile Christians together as One New Man in Christ Yeshua (Ephesians 2:14-16).  The House of David is the lineage of our Savior, and the Tabernacle of David is the priestly and apostolic governmental authority of Christ; bestowed on the Church and established as the dwelling place of intimacy with our Father.

Israelite Return 01Israelite Return.  Anticipating the Restoration of the Whole House of Israel.  Ephraim and Rimona Frank have been involved in the restoration of the whole house of Israel since 1982.  Ephraim is American born, and has been in Israel since 1978, having lived on a kibbutz for 5 years, he and Rimona were married there in 1982.  Rimona is Israeli born.  Ephraim has been studying and teaching the “Gospel of the Kingdom from the Torah and the Prophets” as a full time vocation.  Rimona has been mainly writing on the “Hebraic mindset” as reflected in Biblical Hebrew.

Kol Ha Tor 01Kol ha Tor. Kol ha Tor undertakes the dissemination of knowledge, news and facts on the topic of the great division between the two Houses of Israel (i.e. Judah and Yoseph/Ephraim, the Northern kingdom of the ancient 10 Tribes of Israel).  This End Time re-identification process for the reconciliation of the 2 Houses of Israel and the formation of a re-united 12-Tribed Kingdom of Israel forms the main theme of Biblical Prophecy.  It entails the total and complete concept of Redemption.  It is the main theme of the Bible Message which has been faithfully preserved in the Scriptures of the Bible.

March of Remembrance 01March of Remembrance, a simple prayer walk and / or event taken annually since 2007 on Yom HaShoah (Day of Holocaust Remembrance) to “honor, educate, remember, & engage”.  The March of Remembrance seeks to honor Holocaust survivors and their families, educate the public about the reality of the Holocaust, remember the tragic consequences of silence, and engage people in battling indifference and prejudice.  We choose that day as a clear stance against anti-Semitism and as a powerful symbol of what happens when people remain silent about abuse, prejudice and righteousness.  The March of Remembrance is a sister to the March of Life (Europe).

Restoration Down Under 01Restoration Down Under Ministries. This Australia-based network had its beginning in 2012 and exists as an independent ministry facilitated by a group of believers who mutually and willingly agreed to develop and oversee the ministry while contributing to it with their gifts and abilities.  We clearly see in the Scriptures that YHWH (the LORD) is revealing His plan of restoration of all things (Acts 3:21).  Our responsibility is to return to and walk according to His Way as we are convinced that salvation is by our Heavenly Father’s grace through faith, and is the fruit of repentance that leads to following the Messiah Y’shua’s (Christ Jesus’) example of obedience.

Shaar Israel 01Shaar Israel.  Throughout the Torah God inspired instruction and guidance for Israel to be understood in the latter days.  According to the Hebrew calendar, we have entered the final years of man’s dominion.  At this time all the tribes of Israel are called to awaken to their identity, return to Torah and its Covenants, (Mal.4:22), pray for the two houses of Israel, (Jer. 33:24; II Chron. 7:14), and follow the prophetic directives in the books of the Prophets of Israel.  All the tribes of Israel will be regathered toward brotherhood with Judah (Gen. 49:10; Zech. 8:20-23) who alone has kept his name and has been faithful to the God of Israel (Hos.11:12; 14:8-9).  Shaar Israel provides “an Internet community” for those who identify as a “remnant of Israel” according to these basic Biblical tenets.

United2Restore 01United2Restore.  United 2 Restore is a mission, even a vision, to unite those who identify with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and His Israel.  While we understand there will always be diversity of opinion and we acknowledge each individual’s right to come to their own understanding, we hold the view that Judah (the Jewish people) and Ephraim (found mainly within Christianity), after 2700 years apart, are slowly being drawn toward each other and will soon return to a land promised as one United House of Israel. We are not seeking to create a sect or denomination; rather, we prayerfully seek to network with like-minded servants of the Most High.

About That Second Stick: Positive Harbingers

IsraelAre we really about to see the restoration of all Israel?  And what exactly does that mean?  If the Bible says that it means all twelve tribes descended from the sons of Jacob constituting a national entity in the Land YHVH promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, then perhaps we should be looking for that very thing.  That is what the apostles meant when they asked Yeshua when He would restore the kingdom to Israel.

The restoration means both Houses of Israel – the House of Judah, whom we know today as the Jewish people, and the House of Ephraim, also known as the House of Israel or House of Joseph.  Ephraim consists of the Ten Tribes of Israel’s northern kingdom which never returned from exile.  Most of the Bible is incomprehensible if not viewed in the context of the Two Houses.  Who they were in ancient times, how they separated, and the promise of their restoration form the framework of the Gospel of the Kingdom which is supposed to be preached to the whole world before Messiah comes.

Would it be a surprise to realize that the end of the world as we know it means the beginning of the reign of Messiah over His reestablished Kingdom of Israel?  Christians have anticipated the Great Tribulation and the end of this age, but have seldom considered what is on the other side of that Tribulation.  Jews have considered what is on the other side, but have seldom considered that much of the nation of Israel would be coming from Christendom.  And yet that is just what we are seeing today:  the beginning of the reconstitution of Ephraim, largely through the awakening of Christians to their identity as Israelites based on the covenantal promises of YHVH and the redemptive work of Messiah Yeshua.  The “Torah Awakening” is a major component of this process as Christians are beginning to realize that the entire Bible, including the Feasts of the Lord and the Sabbath (Shabbat), are still applicable to all of God’s people.

Remnant Road 01If this is so, then how far along is this restoration?  Well, within the past year we have seen the Torah Awakening accelerate around the world, and we have seen people begin to identify themselves as Ephraimites in a very public way.  That was the purpose of the First B’ney Yosef National Congress held in Israel in May 2015.  The process has continued throughout the summer, and it promises to continue and expand in the coming months.  That was the subject of a conversation on The Remnant Road, the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  In a broadcast that aired on September 7, David Altman from the Alliance of Redeemed Israel (ARI) talked about the awakening of Believers to their identity as returning Israelites according to the promises of Scripture.  The conversation started with developments since the Congress, and then covered ideas on how to strengthen the ties among individuals, congregations, and communities now identifying as Ephraimites.  David also discussed the upcoming North American Ephraimite Summit, planned for March 4-6, 2016, in Orlando, FL.  To listen to the broadcast and learn how you can get involved please click here.

Another perspective on this process comes from Ephraim Frank, a key organizer of the B’ney Yosef Congress.  In a recent post on his blog, Etz B’ney Yosef, Ephraim provided some interesting and encouraging observations about what we are seeing even now.

Positive Harbingers

Ephraim Frank

Posted on Etz B’ney Yosef September 6, 2015

Shalom Fellow Israelite,

On 12th of May 1948 a decision on the name the newly formed State of Israel had to be voted on by ten council members.  The choices were Yehuda, Tsyion, Tsabar, and Erets Yisrael.  Most assumed that it would be Yehuda, but a divine harbinger manifested in a last minute suggestion by David Ben Gurion, and that was the name “Yisrael”.  Seven of the council members voted for that name, which was a prophetic sign of the future return of all the tribes of Israel. The order of the restoration and return in Ezekiel 37 places Yehuda/Israel first, and thusly Yehuda’s dry stick became at that time a nation once again.

Perhaps you are not aware that also in 1948 a contest was held by the temporary government for a national emblem.  One hundred and sixty-four individuals submitted 450 ideas.  The one chosen, which the State of Israel adopted, on February 10th 1949, was designed by two brothers, Gabriel and Maxim Shamir.  Their suggestion included the seven candle branch Menorah with two olive branches on each side.  The final draft, however, did not totally resemble the brothers’ original design, as the committee decided to incorporate a few other features into it and changed the shape of the Menorah to the one depicted in the Arch of Titus (in Rome).  The two olive branches which flank the Menorah, were meant as peace symbols, and only later were associated with Zechariah 4:11.  I believe that this design was another harbinger of the restoration of the two sticks of Ezekiel 37:16.

BFB150909 Emblem of Israel

In his book The Harbinger, Jonathan Cahn makes mention of the significance of trees in the Bible.  He specifically notes the two cited in Isaiah 9:10 – the sycamore and the cedar, both in relationship to the 9/11 terror attack in New York, as being symbolic of judgments upon the United States.  In an interview about his latest book, The Mystery of the Shemitah Unlocked, he noted how Shemitah years are associated with judgments and changes, both positive and negative.  The rise and fall of nations in connection to Shemitah is one example he brings up in this book.  Hence, if the USA is indeed spiraling down, and if that began in a Shemitah year (2001), what about the rise of the nation of Yehuda in 1917 (another Shemitah), or the reconstitution of the second stick/nation of Yosef/Ephraim in the current Shemitah?  Is the latter also a harbinger of this eventuality, with the first Yehuda-Yosef “United 2 Restore” group marching in the Jerusalem Succot parade last year and then with the convening of the first B’ney Yosef National Congress on Shavuot?  Is this the Shemitah year in which the second stick/nation of Joseph/Ephraim is beginning to bud?  By the same token, should many of the harbingers of judgment be also interpreted positively, in that YHVH is going to bring back and restore the whole House of Israel?  The branch of Yehuda in the national emblem is fully leafed, but what about the second branch in that national emblem, what should it look like at this time?  Here is my rendition:

Yehuda’s stick has become a nation.  Yosef’s is just beginning to bud.

Yehuda’s stick has become a nation. Yosef’s is just beginning to bud.

About That Great Sabbath Debate

BFB140430 Sabbath

As expected, the debate between Jim Staley and Chris Rosebrough gave us two full hours of very lively and informative discussion on the question of whether Christians should keep the Sabbath.  The link to the archived debate is now available from Passion for Truth Ministries here:

First of all, I compliment Jim Staley and Chris Rosebrough for their courage and candor throughout the debate.  Both men prepared well and acquitted themselves as one would expect of brothers in Yeshua who disagree on a matter.  The debate did get heated in points, reflecting the passion both men hold for the question of the Sabbath, but it never degenerated into a name-calling shouting match, such as we have become accustomed to seeing in political debates and cable news opinion pieces.  That alone is reason to applaud the participants.  As moderator, Joseph Farah had little to do but state the rules, keep the time, and wrap up the discussion at the end.
