The Dutch Destroy Themselves

Like every Israelite country stricken with madness as part of our curse for disobedience to the laws of God (Dan. 9:11), the Dutch are destroying themselves through acceptance of illegal immigration. The Dutch are the Israelite tribe of Zebulon. - DBA

Dutch government to naturalise 30,000 illegals

The new Dutch government is to naturalise the estimated 30,000 illegal immigrants currently in the territory of the Netherlands. The new government, composed of Christian Democrats, socialists and the Christian Union, has been vehemently attacked for this by the opposition Liberal party, whose Immigration Minister, Rita Verdonk, made a name for herself for her tough stance on immigration. Mrs Verdonck’s party called the plan “extraordinarily irresponsible.” The Freedom Party led by Geert Wilders has also attacked the plan, saying that it would bring the Netherlands “to the brink” by encouraging “the Islamic invasion”. The proposed naturalisation has a retroactive effect, since it is being offered to all those who made an initial request for citizenship before 1 April 2001, when the new more restrictive immigration law was introduced. The Socialist government of Spain passed a similar law in 2005, providing for the mass naturalisation of illegal immigrants. Commentators have argued that this contributed to the mass influx of new boat people, principally from West Africa, who have been flooding into the Canary Islands ever since the law was passed, presumably in the hope that there will be future naturalisations as well.

President Abraham Lincoln on Jesuit subversives

Were you aware that President Abraham Lincoln exposes a very real Roman Catholic conspiracy against the United States? The subversive Jesuits hate our religious liberty and freedom of conscience with a passion! The bloody Vatican wants to destroy us and supplant truth with their tradition by any means necessary.

Abraham Lincoln regarding the Civil War as found in 50 YEARS IN THE 'CHURCH' OF ROME:

"This war would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis nor anyone of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that, under the mask of Democracy, the money and the arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France were at their disposal, if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are, in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know, on that subject, from the knowledge of the nation; for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would at once, take a tenfold more savage and bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The Protestants of both the North and the South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor Morse has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free."

President Abraham Lincoln continues:

"Is it not an absurdity to give to a man a thing which he is sworn to hate, curse, and destroy? And does not the Church of Rome hate, curse and destroy liberty of conscience whenever she can do it safely? I am for liberty of conscience in its noblest, broadest, highest sense. But I cannot give liberty of conscience to the Pope and to his followers, the Papists, so long as they tell me, through all their councils, theologians, and canon laws, that their conscience orders them to bum my wife, strangle my children, and cut my throat when they find their opportunity! This does not seem to be understood by the people today. But sooner or later, the light of common sense will make it clear to every one that no liberty of conscience can be granted to men who are sworn to obey a Pope, who pretends to have the right to put to death those who differ from him in religion."

Israel in the EU?

Published: 23 February, 2007

Three quarters of Israelis would like to see Israel join the European Union.


Since so many Israelis despise the Holy Land of Israel, God will give them what they want -- with a twist: the fascist EU will pollute Israel and occupy Jerusalem. As the following articles testify, Israel will be in the belly of the Beast:

EU to Conquer Anglo-Saxons and Jews

Paint Israel Black: Jews to Lose Jerusalem!

Grand Master Turns Up The Heat On Jerusalem; Trouble Brewing In The North

Woe to Ariel! (Jerusalem to suffer EU occupation)

Will Bush evict Americans from the Southwest?

Imagine -- God forbid -- Bush blathering we can no longer prevent illegal aliens from taking over the Southwest, so in order to have "peace" with Mexico, we must expel the law-abiding and productive Americans living there and surrender their homes and property and businesses to Mexicans before they start terrorizing the rest of the United States to create their new homeland called Atzlan. After all, we seized those territories with superior force and must now return them to right an alleged wrong. Don't be surprised if our government rewards illegal immigration and the madness goes that far, as part of the curse we're suffering for disobedience to our Great Creator God (Deut. 28:43, Dan. 9:11).

Don't Expel Jews from Gaza!

Christians reject "Palestine" for the Promised Land of Israel

Some strangely proposed a Jewish homeland in Uganda, but common sense and divine will prevailed and the Jews settled upon the historical land of Zion, the historical Jewish homeland, the Promised Land of ISRAEL. How logical.

An Open Letter to Stephen Flurry Concerning "Palestine"

An Open Letter to Stephen Flurry Concerning "Palestine"

Dear Mr. Stephen Flurry:

"Like father, like son" -- for better and for worse! I enjoy your clear writing style, resonant with scriptures, that the fine-tuned ear of the Elect look and listen for, which is why it's so BLARING when you perpetuate glaring error! Your otherwise excellent article in The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine, "Escape from Sodom and Gomorrah" was polluted with the biblically incorrect term "Palestine."

Your father [Gerald Flurry] quotes Shmuel Schnitzer lamenting the new Jewish people who are "preparing to deny our [Jewish] rights, both the divine promise and in terms of REFERRING TO THE LAND BY THE NAME OF ITS PEOPLE, "The Land of Israel' -- a land which belongs to the Children of Israel, from then and to eternity..." [emphasis mine] and then, himself, continues in "Israel's Lost Vision" blind to his own hypocrisy, "Let's look back at Palestine's recent history."

Yes, let's look at what name GOD gave the land as an inheritance of all Twelve Tribes of Israel. GOD named it after our patriarch ISRAEL. Satan inspired the Romans to mock God and dishonor our Father by attempting to erase Israel's name off the map! "They have said, 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more'" (Psalms 83:4). Why join with the enemies of God and Israel? Why give credence to an ILLEGITIMATE name? God forbid Israel ever becomes "Palestine"!

Since I truly believe you want to go by the Bible, please do so and refer to the Land of Israel by its GOD ORDAINED NAME -- Israel!

For Zion's sake,
David Ben-Ariel

The Month of Adar: Making Room for G-d

The Month of Adar: Making Room for G-d
The Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem ^ | 02-20-07 | Yitzchak Reuven

By building a place for G-d - a sanctuary, by allowing our hearts to impel us to do so, is to literally invite G-d's presence into our lives. This is true on an individual level. How much more so on a national level. How wonderful would it be for all nations of the world to dedicate their national wills toward the creation of a sanctuary for the one G-d of Israel, so that He could dwell amongst the nations.

Save the City of David campaign

Court orders settlers to leave building in East Jerusalem
By Meron Rapoport, Haaretz Correspondent

The Jewish families being shamefully evicted now, associated with Ateret Kohanim, remind me of those Jewish pioneers of the El-Ad ("To the City of David") organization that I was blessed to visit with as soon as they liberated areas of Shiloach years ago, as mentioned within Conflict in Jerusalem. Later I sat and talked with its leader, David Be'eri, on his lawn about the situation and future.

May a proper Jewish government be brought to power that will respect the Jewish Homeland and strengthen it and appreciate those who love it dearly. Meanwhile, may Jews, Israelis and Christian Zionists, encourage such patriotic souls in Shiloach to continue performing the mitzvot of settling the land and launch a "Save the City of David" campaign to show solidarity.

Israel's sworn enemies have no trouble getting a riot on, so why can't we manage to have an overwhelming show of support for those Jews on the frontlines to restore biblical Jerusalem? May the public have massive demonstrations and put pressure on the government to do the right thing and permit the Jews to remain. Let the yeshivas empty their classrooms and take it to the streets. No more Jewish expulsions!

El-Ad Foundation
The El-Ad Foundation is on the forefront of the movement to strengthen the ties of the Jewish people with ancient Jerusalem - the City of David. Right near the Western Wall, El-Ad is settling Jewish families right where the capital of Israel stood in the time of the Bible, developing archeological sites, and connecting visitors to the ancient City of David.

Blow up the mosques? I'm not the Messiah!

God has seen to it that my unjust deportation from Israel has served to highlight the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi-Muslim occupation before a worldwide audience and further expose the German-Vatican plot to control Jerusalem. Baruch HaShem!

Watch Jerusalem!

The Israelis have installed cameras at the site where the Jews were repairing and improving the rampway to Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount, so the whole world can watch. The Israeli Antiquities Authority, which is conducting the excavations, has installed three cameras that broadcast the goings-on at the site 24 hours a day. One day soon the whole world will watch the work of the Two Witnesses from Jerusalem.

The Choice is Queer?

Knesset Members Demand IDF Reopen Joseph's Tomb

Knesset Members Demand IDF Reopen Joseph's Tomb
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

(IsraelNN.com) 35 Knesset members from various political factions are calling on the IDF to renew civilian access to the tomb of the Biblical Joseph in Shechem. The site, at which Jews have gathered for prayer over the generations, has been closed to visitors for the past three years due to the dangers posed by Arab terrorists in the region...

Knesset Members Demand IDF Reopen Joseph's Tomb

Joseph stands before you!

St. John the apostle versus Rome

Saint John the apostle faithfully kept the seventh day Sabbath, not the Roman Sunday; Saint John the apostle faithfully kept the annual Passover, not the papist Easter, and faithfully observed the Jewish dietary laws (God gave Israel to share with all mankind) -- he didn't give folks a license to sin and pig out on whatever their dark heart coveted or to strangely engage in a cannabilistic ritual of eating blood that the APOSTLES (he was one of them) forbad converted Jews, Israelites and Gentiles at the holy Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 - and continued to keep the "Jewish festivals" the early Church of God (converted Jews, Israelites and Gentiles) kept -- not the Roman hollow days like Christmas (Saturnalia - a rose by any other name...) and the rest of the cheap replacement theology substitutes.

We need to do as the early Church of God did and keep the commandments and holy days of God -- not the idolatrous traditions of men, not the baptized paganism of Roman wolves in sheep's clothing (the Babylonian Mystery religion in Christian drag), so help us God.

Jude 1:3
Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints [in Jerusalem, not Rome].

Jeremiah 6:16
"Thus saith Yahweh, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk there in, and ye shall find rest to your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein."

Celtic-Israelite Commonalities


copyright (c) 2007 by Mr. Yaacov Levi

Excerpt: "Being both Irish and Jewish, I grew up familiar with customs and cultures of both Peoples, Irish and Jews, only in later years becoming aware that they had quite different cultures and greatly varying cultural characteristics. Yet growing up with both cultures, I had noticed similarities even on a casual basis. Over the years I began to see more of this similarity and in recent years I began to collect this data into what I term an Overview which I am still assembling. It is this Overview in differing areas of life that I will discuss here".

YERUSHALIYIM, Israelite Tribal Territories of Judah and Benjamin, Kingdom of David and Solomon, United Israelite Kingdom of Judah and Joseph, Twenty Fifth Day, Eleventh Month ("Shvat"), 5767; Yom Shlishi (Third Day of the Week/"Tues"-day, February 13, 2007), Root & Branch Information Services [mailto:rb@rb.org.il] [www.rb.org.il]:

To those interested in the history of the Celtic Peoples and their modern descendants in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany and Cornwall and their descendants around the world, a subject often raised is possible connections with ancient Israelites, in particular the Lost Tribes of Israel.

The purpose of this article is not to confirm Celtic connections with the Lost Tribes of Israel, but to discuss some of the many common characteristics of modern Celtic Peoples and ancient Israelites. These characteristics I call "commonalities". I am not attempting in this short essay to establish connections which have been addressed in many other volumes. I will point out and discuss a few of the commonalities between these Peoples.

Lost Tribes of the House of Israel

The Peoples we refer to as the Lost Tribes were part of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, conquered by the Assyrians around 740-720 B.C.E. and exiled to areas in Assyria and to the north. This story is told in the Bible in the Second Book of Kings, Chapters 17 and 18. About the same time a contingent from the Kingdom of Judah was also exiled to northern lands. It is these Peoples and their immediate descendants who are also variously referred to as the Lost Tribes, and the subject of many works and studies.

Being both Irish and Jewish, I grew up familiar with customs and cultures of both Peoples, Irish and Jews, only in later years becoming aware that they had quite different cultures and greatly varying cultural characteristics. Yet growing up with both cultures, I had noticed similarities even on a casual basis. Over the years I began to notice more and more similarities and in recent years I began to collect this data into what I term an Overview which I am still assembling. It is this Overview in differing areas of life that I will discuss here.

There are a number of areas that I have been looking at which include: Language, agriculture, religion and taboos, burial practices, music and folk dancing, the traditions and self determinations and self-identification of the Celts and other areas as they arise. I will point out a few items in each category and note that these are just a few of a great many commonalities. I mention them as examples.

Language is one of the subjects that led to my overall interest in the topic as early on I noticed similarities. Considering the long period of time from the expulsion of the Israelites until today, it would seem likely that there should be little, if any, common letters, words or structures. This is not the case. There is much in common.

Gaelic is a member of the Celtic group of the Indo-European family of languages that includes Russian, English, German, Spanish, French, Hindi and Italian. The Celtic group has been confined to the British Isles, part of the French coast and a tiny enclave in Spain.

Linguistic Similarities

The Celtic language group is divided into two divisions which has three languages in each division. Each division makes up its own unique language. The two branches are:

The BRYTHONIC branch which is made up of the Welsh, Breton and Cornish languages.

The GOIDELIC branch with the Irish, Scots and Manx Gaelic languages.

The Breton and Cornish languages are seeing some resurgence after near extinction. The Irish, Scots and Welsh languages are holding their own at this time. Manx is an ancient form of Irish and is considered to be the oldest and purest Irish Gaelic in existence.

Manx is very close to the extinct dialects of nearby Ulster and Galloway. It separated from Old Irish around the Fifth Century B.C.E. Manx occupies much the same relation to Old Irish as Icelandic does to Old Norse. For the purpose of my study I have chosen to concentrate on Manx and Scots Gaelic. I am sure though that an in-depth study of Welsh or other Gaelic languages would provide much food for thought on this issue.

The Gaelic alphabet as well as the ordinal numbers show more commonality with Hebrew than might be expected after 2,700 years of divergence. For example, we have a Hebrew "s" retained in the modern Gaelic. The Hebrew Sheen, pronounced "Sh" is found in the Irish "s" as in the name Sean, pronounced Shawn. Other letters are also similar. The ordinal numbers 6 & 7 are pronounced almost the same in Hebrew and Gaelic.

Words with same or similar meanings abound. For example, the Hebrew word for "holy" in common usage according to Halacha (Jewish law) is Kasher. The word in Manx Gaelic for "hallowed" or "holy" is Casherick. The syntax of Gaelic is entirely different from any other European language, especially English. R.L. Thompson, in his work "Outline of Manx Literature and Language" says that "in several respects Gaelic syntax has similarities with that of languages like Hebrew and Arabic".

As in Hebrew, adjectives follow the noun that they describe. For example, "ben vie" = "a good woman in Gaelic. "Rosh ketan" = "small head" or "stupid" in Hebrew. ("Vie" or "ketan" being the adjectives). Word order is also similar in Hebrew in that the verb usually comes first in the sentence, unlike English or many other European languages. These are just a very few of the many commonalities that I believe suggest a definite connection between the two languages and their family streams. This alone should be a subject for a major comparative study.

Commonalities in Ethnic Customs

One of the first areas in which I noticed similarities was in customs, notably folk dancing; and, later, musical instruments. The Hebrew Hora and other old traditional dances are paralleled in many Gaelic folk dances, especially the wedding dance of the Gaels which is very similar to the traditional Ashkenazi wedding dances of Europe.

Musical instruments of the Gaels are found in the Israelite tradition, notably the harp in both Celtic tales and certainly Hebrew tradition as the favoured instrument of the psalmist David (please see the article "The Harp of David and the Harp of Ireland" by John Wheeler in the August-October, 2006 issue of "Origins of Nations").

One of the most intriguing discoveries was that the Irish and Scots pipes with which we are all familiar have their origins in the desert flute played daily throughout the Middle East. The flute of desert shepherds is identifiable in the "chanter" of the Irish and Scots pipes.

Amazing Religious Parallels

The ancient religion of the Celtic Peoples prior to Christianity was generally believed to be Druidism, of which little is known. That which we do know indicates many similarities to Canaanite religions that the Northern Israelite Tribes turned to after they separated from the Kingdom of David and Solomon after Solomon's death. Like the pagans of Canaan, the sacred places of the Northern Israelite Tribes became high hilltops and sacred groves, notably oaks.

Archeology shows many similarities between Northern Israelite Kingdom ritual sites and Druidic sites in the Isles. Additionally, the burial practices of both the Peoples of the Northern Israelite Kingdom and the Celts show much similarity in the presence of Dolmens -- large slabs of stone placed horizontally across upright stones with the graves under them. These are found in areas of Europe through which Celtic Peoples passed and are found also in areas of present day Jordan and Israel where Northern Israelite Tribes dwelt.

After the Roman invasion of the Isles, white cattle were introduced and later used. Until that time red was the preferred color. One of the most famous wars in Irish history was over a Red Bull stolen by a northern Irish tribe. Swine were not raised in early Celtic areas until after they were introduced by the Romans. The Celts had a taboo against eating swine and also against eating scaleless fish such as eels and shellfish. Celts, like the Israelites, were excellent herdsmen and developed identifiable breeds of sheep, cattle and horses, which carried on Israelite traditions.

Other Proofs

Perhaps one of the most telling commonalities is simply the self-identification as Israelites of Hibernians -- name of the Irish, Scots and Hebrides Islands off the coast of Scotland. Milesians, one of the early Celtic Peoples to come to Ireland from Spain, had a tradition that they were of the Lost Tribes of Israel. The name "Heber", "Eber", or "H'berian" is found throughout early literature to describe the Celts as they described themselves to be "Of Eber", grandfather of Abraham.

What I have presented here in greatly abbreviated form just skims the surface of the commonalities between the Celts and Israelites. There is a tremendous amount of information available for those who would like to learn more. A few resources are listed below. This is one of those subjects about which at first one may say "Oh, that is an interesting coincidence".

The sheer mass of such "coincidences" that accumulate after one studies the subject should raise eyebrows. The fact that so much of the languages are similar almost three thousand years later, that customs are clearly identifiable as being related, that religious practices are uniquely similar and that the everyday agricultural practices and crops were similar all along, together with many other commonalities, suggest possible common origin.

For those interested in studying this subject further I wish you well and much enjoyment.

Peace now: Arabs and Jews must go their separate ways

The Jews have always known the covetous Arabs who occupy Israel are identified as Ishmael, and the Arabs themselves know it - even if it possibly became better known to some in the North and West due to Mohammad's confirmation. Besides, who else fits the biblical PROFILE like the Arabs feuding with the Jews over inheritance?

Genesis 15:
18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates- 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."

Genesis 16:12
He [Ishmael] shall be a wild man;His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his [Arab] brethren.”

Genesis 17:
19 Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him [Isaac] as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year." 22 When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.

Genesis 25:
5 Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac. 6 But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.

Meir Kahane, former Israeli Parliament member and rabbi (murdered by another Arab terrorist) agreed with Sarah's inspired words to Abraham about the necessity of separation between Ishmael and Israel. Kahane was right: "They must go!"

Mount Ephraim Newsletter (latest)

For the record, I am sharing this Mount Ephraim Newsletter of Stephen Spykerman from Great Britain, even though I am not fully convinced what to think about it. I have my prayerful reservations, but am keeping these things in mind like Jacob did with Joseph's dream (if that is an acceptable comparison) since I am for the prophetic knowledge of the Israelite origins of the West to become known among Jews and non-Jews, among the "Gentilized" Israelites of the North and West, among the Anglo-Saxons and white peoples of Northwestern Europe.

Must the Sabbath-keeping Church of God members (who agree on the basics of what Herbert W. Armstrong taught) agree perfectly with others who profess to be Christians before we can work together? I've encouraged the Church of God to support Yair Davidiy of Brit-Am Israel and he's a Torah-observant Jew who doesn't recognize Yeshua as the One but knows that we (Anglo-Saxons) are his brother Joseph.

May God lead and guide us, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and glorify His Name and fulfill His Word that Joseph and Judah will be reconciled.

For Zion's Sake,
David Ben-Ariel


NO: 5 – Monday, 29th January 2007

Dear Friends,

It was never my intention that our last Newsletter should fall into the hands of the Orthodox. This is especially the case because the content referred to our beloved Saviour Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, and King of the Jews. In my dealings with our Orthodox friends in Jerusalem, I invariably do not refer to the Captain of our Salvation, simply out of the utmost respect and in deference to their faith. Nevertheless, I know that they know I am a believer in Yeshua, and they know that I know that they know. What brings us to agreement is the belief that the Two Houses of Israel, Judah and Ephraim, are destined to come together into one UNITED KINGDOM OF ISRAEL, as prophesied by all of the prophets. We also believe that we live in the very days when these two nations will be reunited into one Kingdom once again.

Judging by the subsequent amazing developments the letter clearly had been placed in Orthodox hands by Divine appointment. Whilst in Jerusalem for the last three days of our stay we were invited to become part of a work which, for the past year, has been witnessing about the imminent return of the Lost House of Israel to none other than the Rabbis of Israel. Whilst this work initially has met with huge resistance the encouraging fact is that by now over 2,000 rabbis have been reached. Can you imagine how significant this is? It is the Rabbinate of Israel that controls the gates into the land – that is, the Gates through which Ephraim will have to enter the Land. Thus through this ongoing work YHVH, the Holy One of Israel, is re-charging/re-activating the mindset of the Rabbinical Gate keepers without anyone being aware of what He is doing behind the scenes.

Imagine my surprise when I received an Email from OvadYah Avrahami, an Orthodox gentleman (an Ephraimite-become-one with Judah) from the so-called ‘occupied territories’ in Israel, referring to our Newsletter in the most glowing terms. Apparently without knowing I had really lit this gentleman’s fire with my Newsletter comments that ‘The message simply has to go to Judah. It also resonates with the Word which states that, the WORD of the LORD shall go forth from ZION! As you may remember, I posed the question; does this WORD GOING FORTH FROM ZION INCLUDE HIS PROPHETIC WORD TO THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL? I then proceeded to demonstrate from the Scriptures that the answer was a resounding YES! Our Orthodox friend was also struck by my comments about the KEY OF DAVID being in Judah’s hands, as Judah ultimately holds the key to the tribes coming back home to the land of their fathers.

OvadYah told me that my statements had opened a window in his understanding which he wished to share with me. i.e. If the reunion of the Two Houses of Israel is not ‘steered’ from Judah, it cannot be Scriptural, for, “The WORD of YHVH shall go forth from ZION!” i.e. His Plan, His Purpose, His Torah & His Kingdom! He then proceeded to tell me about the highly confidential KOL HA TOR Project of which he was the administrative coordinator. I was asked a number of pertinent questions such as my views on missionising and proselytizing the Jews etc. We then entered into an exchange of views, at the end of which he invited me to join a closed group of supporters for the KOL HA TOR PROJECT.

The Kol Ha Tor Project is an end-time prophetic work currently spearheaded by an Orthodox rabbi who is filled with a divine zeal and passion to convey the reality of, and to awaken the awareness of the now imminent return of the Lost House of Israel to his Rabbinical colleagues in the land. He has written a book in Hebrew, which reminds them of the rich layers of proofs to be found in the words of the great Sages of Israel. He also sites the emergence of the Christian Zionist movement and the massive surge of the Hebrew Roots Restoration movement as evidence that Hashem is stirring the Christian/Israelite world to return to Zion. Through his book and personal discussions with rabbis, he manages to quell their fears of being flooded by a proselytizing wave, by assuring them of the new and different spirit which is prevalent in this new ‘breed’ of Torah loving Ephraimites. Thus far some 2,000 books have already been distributed, and it has been officially included in the curriculum of one important Yeshiva with 200 rabbis in training. I can report that as a direct result of his efforts some 1,600 rabbis are now on side about the return of Ephraim, and their numbers are growing each week. Amongst those rabbis there are six who are of major national importance, and our aim is to multiply this number by a factor of at least ten, as it is only when we achieve this goal that the process becomes an unstoppable force for change.

The main objective is to bring awareness to both the Houses of Judah and Ephraim of the need to make peace with each other in this 3000 year old ‘family feud’ between them in order to hasten or to make possible the establishment of God’s Kingdom – which requires the Return of the Shekinah Presence (the direct and visible Presence) of God. For this to happen there needs to be a huge mental shift in the hearts and minds of both the Rabbinate of Israel, (who hold the keys to entry for Ephraim) and the returning House of Ephraim (who generally refuse to pay the Rabbinate the respect they deserve as the Divinely mandated guardians of the Torah. Our rabbi is courageously tackling head on the massive prejudice that exist in the ranks of Judaism against Christianity spawned by millennia of Christian persecution. Through the centuries Jews have thus obtained a terribly jaundiced view of Jesus, the Christian Messiah.

For those religious Jews who live by every precept of the Torah, the name of Jesus has become one of the vilest names under the sun. This is due mainly through the terrible things Christians have done to the Jews in that name, and then persisting in proselytizing them – even under the threat of the sword! They have come to look upon Jesus as an Anti-Christ, or Anti-Messiah. To try and change these ingrained attitudes is humanly virtually impossible, yet we know that with Our Heavenly Father, all things are possible. It is as a matter of correct perspective and awareness that our rabbi manages to influence them positively.

The amazing thing is that the Kol Ha Tor Project has taken up this consummate task of bringing a healing of attitudes between Judah and Ephraim. Our rabbi has started by changing the perceptions of his own Rabbinical colleagues about their Prophetic responsibility towards Ephraim, the reality of the Prophetic fulfillment regarding the Return of Ephraim taking shape at this very time. He does this by pointing out how the original Torah foundation of the New Testament has been suppressed and high-jacked by the Roman State religion in the days of Emperor Constantine, and contrasts this with the current phenomenon of a Return to Torah amongst re-awakening Ephraim.

The rabbi points out that the Gospels are not the raging anti-Semite sources they are made out to be in Judaism’s circles. Jesus, according to the NT record, being Torah observant himself, preached adherence to the Torah, and also that in many of his statements and so-called rebukes of the Jewish religious leaders, he actually upheld the Oral Law in a style similar to normal Rabbinic debate regarding differences of opinion or interpretation. The rabbi points out that, according to NT writings, most of the time Jesus/Yeshua would support the School of Hillel, whereas on occasion he would support the School of Shammai. In his view it was the influence of Rome which turned this sect into the Jew and rabbi hating religion of Christianity.

I must add here that our rabbi emphatically does not accept that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel, and neither does he accept the veracity of the New Testament as being the divinely inspired Word of YHVH. Nevertheless, this man is doing a wonderful work of pointing out to the Rabbis the Halachic Torah base of the NT, and the negative and contorting anti-Semitic onslaught of the Roman authorities against the Jewish influence in the NT. This immediately changes their conception of Christian Zionists and removes for them the threat of the ‘sword’. What is more, he is doing a work only an Orthodox Rabbi can do amongst the Rabbis – hence our confirmation that the Restoration must be ‘steered’ from out of Zion. It is noteworthy here that several attempts have been made towards the Rabbis over the last decade, regarding the promotion of the Restoration of the Two Houses of Israel. These were all driven by Messianic leaders, and they all failed miserably. The Kol Ha Tor project is the first of its kind, to be steered from within Judah, right in the heart of Jerusalem e.g. Zion! This courageous man of God deserves our unqualified support, and we should support him all we can.

It took me nearly a whole day searching on the Internet to find our hotel in Jerusalem. Then on the 22nd January we finally booked into room 712 on the seventh floor. No sooner had we unpacked our cases than the telephone rang and it was Ovadyah Avrahami saying hello from room number 612 immediately below us. It transpired that OvadYah and his wife had been presented with a gift of a whole weeks stay in the same hotel we were in. Another divine appointment if ever there was one!! We subsequently spent many hours over the next three days in discussions with OvadYah and the rabbi, whose name I cannot mention because of the highly sensitive nature of his mission. In our discussions I was invited to translate my “WHO ARE YOU AMERICA?” booklet into Hebrew, so that it too can be printed in Israel. Our message with its dramatic full colour illustrations would then be taken down the same rabbinical channel, as further confirmation of the message about the imminent return of Ephraim.

This is surely a momentous development – to me it is the fulfillment of a dream! Thousands of rabbis are BEING WOKEN UP to the extraordinary news that Judah’s long lost brothers of the House of Israel are in the spiritual process of being re-identified to their ancient Hebraic ancestry. For the moment we are concentrating our message on the religious leaders of Israel, and there will come a time when we will impart it to the secular leaders also. For the moment though the decision is to hold fire on this, as Israel is currently cursed with the worst anti-Israel & anti-G-d government in its history.

Can we not understand their fears? They are afraid the Jewish society is going to be swamped by Christians with an evangelizing zeal to make converts of Jews. They are also most afraid of assimilation, as their sons and daughters are swept away in marriage to the newcomers. The Tanach (O.T.) prophesied that this kind of reaction would occur. Ezekiel prophesied that in the end times Judah would fear the return of her wayward brothers to the point where they will not want to receive them: “Son of man, your brethren, your relatives, your countrymen, and all the house of Israel in its entirety, are those about whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Get far away from the LORD; this land has been given to us as a possession.’” V17 Therefore say, “Thus says the LORD GOD: “I will gather you from the peoples, assemble you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.” V19-20 “Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them, and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.” Ezekiel 11: 15,17,19-20. The prophecy is that they will be given the land of Israel. Notice it does not mention that they will be given the land of Judah. In other words those returning Israelites will be given the former territory of the Northern Kingdom of Israel to dwell in. This fact alone should make Judah feel a whole lot better. This is the very point our rabbi makes to the rabbis he speaks to.

Yeshua in his parable of the ‘Prodigal Son’ in Luke 15:11-32 speaks of a certain man who had two sons. The allegorical interpretation is that of a father who had two sons, e.g. one representing the House of Israel and the other the House of Judah. The son representing Israel asks to be given his inheritance, only to go away and waste his inheritance on riotous living. He end up totally destitute taking care of another mans pigs. He then comes to his senses and returns to his father’s house where he is received with great joy. His father orders the fatted calf to be slaughtered and makes a great feast for his prodigal son. The story then goes on to relate that the faithful son who had stayed at home with his father, e.g. Judah was upset and would not join the party. The parable goes on to relate the fathers words to Judah: “Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found!”
Can you imagine what a celebration there will be both in heaven and in all the earth when both the Houses of Judah and Israel become One again, having been separated for 2,700 long years? Can you imagine what a party that will be when finally Messiah Ben David rules over the REUNITED KINGDOM OF ISRAEL?

Did Y’shua not ask his disciples to pray “THY KINGDOM COME?” Well, with this Kol Ha Tor Project now in full swing in Judah we can do a lot more than pray. We can become doers of the word and not hearers only by generously contributing to this vital groundbreaking work. At the moment our project to the Rabbinical Gate keepers of Israel has barely a score of supporters who finance the operation. Some months there are only enough funds to print just a hundred Hebrew books, when we need to print thousands more. The rabbi in question also has considerable other responsibilities, and he needs to take on administrative staff to lighten his almost impossible load, so that he can spend more time on the work that matters to us all.

The work of Mount Ephraim too needs the funds to translate our publications into Hebrew, so that our confirmatory message may go down that same Rabbinical trail, thus hugely reinforcing the message already given. It will go to rabbis who have already been mentally prepared to receive it. Yet, despite all of this, none of us can accomplish anything if others do not jump in to help us. Now is the time to really get behind this work, not just with your prayers but also with your tithes, offerings and funds. I estimate that only some $ 25,000.00 is needed to complete this phase of our work. By the way, for those of you who wondered about the meaning of Kol Ha Tor – it means – ‘The Voice of the Turtledove.’ That same voice is right now calling for your support!

Yours until the reunification of the whole house of Israel,

Jewish homes Ariel Sharon destroyed

Read and weep for the Israeli Jews of Gush Katif/Gaza, on whose behalf I wrote before their illegal expulsion by the bribed Ariel Sharon and criminal company working for foreign interests. Many of them remain homeless, depressed and basically abandoned by their lying government -- their former homes history, stripped bare and destroyed by marauding Arab enemies who are now fighting among themselves, one terrorist group (Hamas) against another terrorist group (Fatah), as the daily newspapers and television reports confirm.

Don't Expel Jews from Gaza!

Israel called to build the Temple of God

There is a spiritual temple that true believers compose and then there is the physical temple that God commands Israel to build. They serve different purposes. The physical and spiritual temples complement one another, they do not compete against each other.

King David and the Prophets had the Holy Spirit. They were the spiritual tabernacle/temple in their days, but it didn't stop their great respect and understanding that the physical temple in Jerusalem had its God-ordained purpose, such as a place for the nation to worship together, and a place for foreigners to come and worship the God of Jacob. God commands Israel to build His House of Prayer for All Peoples to again serve that transcendent purpose. Will Israel soon fulfill their calling to do so?

Gershon Salomon called to build Temple

G-d Appeared to Gershon in the Field of Battle and Anointed Him to Build the Temple

Since 1948, Israel has been attacked seven times by her Arab enemies. Seven times, 300 million Arabs with the backing of a billion and a half Muslims and many nations were defeated by the small Israeli nation and her small
army. How could this happen? The answer is very clear. As in the biblical times and in the time of Gideon, the G–d of Israel became the General and the Commander of the Israeli Army and fought together with them in all the fields of battle: "Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle" (Zechariah 14: 3). There are many stories among Israeli soldiers who have felt the presence of G-d and His angels among them in battle and many enemies have seen angels fighting with the Israeli forces...

Hitler was a preview!

Hitler was a type, a preview, of what's to come in Europe but this time THE BEAST will target the British-Israelites and Jews. Nazi Germany fought against the American and British peoples, but it was our Jewish brethren who were targeted.

Even as Satan made pharaoh afraid of the deliverer who would be born to Israel, and Herod was paranoid about the Messiah who had been born, so pagan Gentile European leaders, under the Roman Catholic Cult's influence, know that repentant and converted Joseph and Judah (due to the special rescue mission of the Two Witnesses) are to ultimately rule the world and will desperately try and prevent us from ever succeeding. Thankfully, as the first chapter of Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall assures us -- Survival Guaranteed! -- God will spare us some Holocaust survivors who will rise to the occasion.

Review what was written and beware the German-Jesuits are that much closer to sealing their deal in Jewish blood that will deliver the goods of Israeli sovereignty over
Jerusalem to foreigners.

No Jewish leaders?

William Manchester's book, The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill; Visions of Glory, is quite remarkable considering its principles pertain to Israel's situation today. Winston Churchill was considered an "enemy of peace" by those who failed to recognize the growing German threat. Churchill was basically abandoned in a political wilderness until the time came for him to come out in the spirit of the Judges of Israel and deliver Great Britain from the Nazi menace.

Don't we, the Sabbath-keeping Church of God, realize that whenever we warn about the prophesied Beast power rising in Europe -- the final revival of the unholy Roman Empire of the German Nation -- that we'll be falsely accused of hating Germans, Europeans, and Catholics?

Years ago certain ones on AOL accused my book, Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise & Fall, of hating Roman Catholics and German-bashing. I replied then and it's still true today, that it's actually because I LOVE THE GERMANS, I love the Europeans and I love the Roman Catholics that I want to help warn them to not blindly follow their leaders!

It's not only because I love our British-Israelite and Jewish brethren that the biblical warning message must go out: both Israelites and Gentiles must be warned if we're to fulfill our Christian duty as watchmen. The Church of God must warn the world or suffer severe consequences!

For the record, I'm of German descent, in part. I certainly don't hate the Germans, but I do hate what the Nazis did and what Bible prophecy clearly says a German-led Europe will do again on an even greater scale! This time their Satan inspired hatred and murder won't just be against our Jewish brethren but against Joseph: the Anglo-Saxons.

Consider this excellent quote from The Last Lion:

Speaking of the type of leader necessary to stand up to Hitler:

"England looked for another Alfred, a figure cast in a mold which, by the time of the Dunkirk deliverance, seemed to have been forever lost. England's new leader, were he to prevail, would have to be everything England's decent, civilized Establishment had rejected [sound familiar? those impotent ones who worry about reputation and remaining polite and respectable aren't effective in facing the Challenge]... Their successor would have to be a passionate Manichaen who saw the world as a medieval struggle to the death between the powers of good and the powers of evil, who held that individuals are responsible for their actions and that the German dictator was therefore wicked...Like Adolf Hitler he would have to be a leader of intuitive genius, a born demagogue in the original sense of the word, a believer in the supremacy of his race and his national destiny [not one who has forgotten or miserably doubts his Identity], an artist who knew how to gather the blazing light of history into his prism... Such a man, if he existed, would be England's last chance. In London there was such a man."

The question begs to be answered whether or not there's such a man in Jerusalem today (as its cauldron is filled with crooks and thieves and murderers selling out Israel); whether Israel will finally have a truly Jewish leader who will boldly reclaim Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount, and will refuse to tolerate Amalekites claiming Jerusalem as their capital; A strong leader who knows and understands that the Holy Land is promised to Israel and not to Ishmael.

If not, and Zion and Jerusalem fall to the German-Jesuit Europe because we've failed to heed Churchillian warnings, and shamefully despised those Christian-Zionists and Jews who delivered them, then King Messiah will surely save us out of the dreadful "Time of Jacob's Trouble" -- but we'll have first suffered the greatest tribulation to strike planet Earth.
