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…

Tracking the Tribes

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, May 30:

160530 Crossing

Margot Crossing is back! Our Australian friend recently completed a lengthy visit to India where she continued her investigations into the whereabouts of Israel’s Lost Tribes. Her first stop was in Kashmir, where she expanded her connections with Muslim academics who understand the Israelite origin of many of the tribes of India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. On the other side of the Subcontinent, Margot enjoyed a sojourn with the Bnei Menashe (Children of Manasseh) in Mizoram, and along the way she found time to visit awakening Hebrews in the city of Hyderabad. This will be another information-packed show! Join us for news about the restoration of the House of Joseph/Ephraim in South Asia.

Foundations of Ephraimite National Identity

Bney Yosef National Congress BannerThe first day of the Bney Yosef (Sons of Joseph) National Congress has concluded with great promise.  The delegates gathered at Ariel, Israel, among the hills of Samaria, are united in the understanding that the time has come at last for the Lord God to fulfill His promises to restore all of Israel in preparation for Messiah’s coming to establish His throne in Jerusalem.

It was my honor and privilege to present the first address to the Congress.  This presentation on Israelite identity met with a positive reception from the assembly.  I share it here as a glimpse into the matters we are deliberating.

May 26, 2015

By this time I hope that all of us have had our first “moment” here in the Land. You who have enjoyed such an experience know what I mean: it is that instant when you know you are home at last. On Shavuot I had the honor of being present when such a moment came upon one of our brethren at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem. Another brother shared his moment at the Har Bracha (Mount Gerizim, the Mount of Blessing; Deuteronomy 11:29, 27:12-13; Joshua 8:33) yesterday. My moment came last week at Caesarea. Allow me to share it with you.

The Shemitah and The Yovel:  Examining The Relevance of God’s Appointed Times, Part VIII

Walking Through The Open Gate

The Vision of the Dry Bones is the most graphic illustration of God's promised restoration of the Kingdom of Israel.  The establishment of the State of Israel opened the way for Judah (the Jewish portion of Israel) to return to the land, but to the way for Ephraim (Northern Israel) is only now beginning to open.  (Ezekiel's Vision, The Coloured Picture Bible for Children, available on Mannkind Perspectives.)

The Vision of the Dry Bones is the most graphic illustration of God’s promised restoration of the Kingdom of Israel. The establishment of the State of Israel opened the way for Judah (the Jewish portion of Israel) to return to the land, but to the way for Ephraim (Northern Israel) has remained closed until now. (Ezekiel’s Vision, The Coloured Picture Bible for Children, available on Mannkind Perspectives.)

An Enduring Standard

We see from Scripture that the Creator’s processes are lengthy, thorough, and often completely different from what humans desire or expect.  This should not be a surprise.  YHVH says quite plainly that His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts.  Nevertheless, He does tell us what we need to know, and He reveals things at the appointed times to those who bother to seek Him.  What we often learn is that the answer has been there all along, but we have never understood it correctly until the right time and until we approach with the right heart.  When it comes to the purpose of the Lord’s processes regarding His people Israel, the answer has been staring at us for about 3,000 years.  He spoke it through Moses to prepare the people for their first great meeting with Him at Sinai:

In the third month after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on that very day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.  When they set out from Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of the mountain.  Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel:  You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself.  Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.”  (Exodus 19:1-6 NASB, emphasis added)
