HaYovel: The Point of the Ephraimite Spear - Idolaters and Proselytizers

28 Iyyar 5777
Day 43 of the Omer

HaYovel and their fellow Ephraimites and all their Jewish "brothers" can deny it til they are blue in the face, but the facts are there. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.


The following declaration identifying Yeshu as the deity comes from the website of David and Sonia Bowling who were hand-picked by Tommy and Sherri Waller in 2007 to head HaYovel Ministry's work in Israel in their absence.

Proselytizing (Missionizing)

The same website gives a detailed and glowing account of all their missionary activities in Israel (as well as Jordan) during their stay with HaYovel. See HERE.


The following declaration identifying Yeshu as the deity comes from the website of Mercy Collective Messianic/Hebrew Roots Church where Caleb Waller spoke a month ago and invited them all to come to Jerusalem to "participate" in the "redemptive process."

Proselytizing (Missionizing)

This belief, which is the very foundation of Christianity, is what compels Christians to "share the good news" of "salvation" through their messiah.


During his presentation to Mercy Collective  a month ago in Nashville, Caleb Waller kept alluding to the King - "the King who is coming". He is referring to Yeshu who he believes is returning to rule over the earth (see also above), but he gets a bit carried away and lets slip that he is looking forward to the day when all the nations of the world will come up to Jerusalem to "worship" the King.

In that day, God Almighty alone will be worshiped. (Guess that leaves Yeshu high and dry.)

Proselytizing (Missionizing)

Christians practicing Christianity - it's nothing new. The only thing new here is that Jews, even "rabbis", shepherds of God's flock, are embracing them and bringing these wolves right inside the sheep pen. God have mercy on us all!

And they are spreading their tumah onto everything that we hold sacred. I can't even use the term Hashem anymore because of what they have turned it into. When they say it, they mean Yeshu!
May HKB"H send OUR Mashiach Tzidkeinu quickly - NOW - to deliver us from these wicked people and their lies and all those who collaborate with them against us!


27 Iyyar 5777
Day 42 of the Omer

There is a story of man who was walking through the woods and spotted a target painted on a tree trunk with an arrow straight dab in the middle. He was amazed at the archer’s accuracy. He continued his walk and spotted several more trees with targets and arrows shot dead center. As he continued, he met a man with a bow and arrow and inquired if he was an archer who had made those shots.

“Are you the archer who made those brilliant shots?” the man said.

“Yes, I am.” said the archer.

“I would enjoy seeing you make another shot if you would,” the man replied.

“Sure thing,” said the archer

Stepping back the archer pulled out an arrow from his satchel, attached it to his bow and carefully drew it back as he aimed at an unmarked tree. Firing the arrow it lodge into the tree. The archer then picked up two buckets of paints and brushes and proceeded to paint the target around the arrow.

This oft-told story is a classic example of how Christians, and increasingly more and more Jews, c"v, "fulfill prophecy".

There is certainly no question that there are a great many prophecies in Tanakh which promise the return of the Ten Tribes of Israel who were exiled and completely assimilated among the nations. But, to misuse them to validate the spurious claims of the so-called "Ephraimites" - Christians wanting to reclaim the birthright that their father Eisav spurned - is beyond reprehensible.
And the word of the Lord came to [Yechezkel], saying:
"And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write upon it, 'For Judah and for the children of Israel his companions'; and take one stick and write upon it, 'For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.' And bring them close, one to the other into one stick, and they shall be one in your hand.
And when the children of your people say to you, saying, 'Will you not tell us what these are to you?' Say to them, So 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 place them with him with the stick of Judah, and I will make them into one stick, and they shall become one in My hand.
And the sticks upon which you shall write shall be in your hand before their eyes. And say to them, So says the Lord God: Behold I will take the children of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side, and I will bring them to their land.
And I will make them into one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel, and one king shall be to them all as a king; and they shall no longer be two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms anymore.
And they shall no longer defile themselves with their idols,....
Now, despite the fact that the Christian Ephraimites are a completely separate and independent entity which still practices idolatry - that they are gentiles and not Jews - they claim they are the fulfillment of this prophecy. We are being urged to accept their false claims because they will unite with us "in the end" and will give up their idolatry "in the end". That sounds very much like the stock Christian answer to Jewish assertions that Yeshu did not fulfill the prophecies encumbent upon Mashiach. Oh, he'll finish the job when he comes back, they say - in the end. Uhn-huh.

They also completely overlook the fact that God repeats over and over again that HE is going to do this thing, not us. And did you catch that reference to the "Children of Israel"? We were called the Children of Israel when all the tribes were united at Har Sinai. This is how the prophecy says it will be when the Jewish people return to their homeland at the End of Days - all of the tribes will return together, no one knowing really which tribe he belongs to - just Jews. 

And does it say that Ephraim will miraculously regain his memory of his tribal affiliation and return as Ephraim? No! It says, " I will place them with the stick of Judah." In other words, ALL of the returnees, Judah as well as Ephraim, will return together as JEWS - the Children of Israel [Jacob]!!!

Out of the all of the Christians making this claim, I have yet to hear one identify as any tribe other than Ephraim. Strange, no? If this is a "phenomenon" of "the Ruach HaKodesh" how come no one wants to be from Dan or Naphtali or Asher, etc.

We are being told by the gullilble Jews involved with these Ephraimites that we must deal with these people because it is a "phenomenon". I'll tell you about a phenomenon - a REAL phenomenon. Thousands and thousands, multiple entire families - mothers, fathers and children - from across the globe have been quietly, quietly "returning" their souls to Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael. No fanfare, no announcements - just the way HKB"H likes to carry out these truly redemptive processes. So many gentiles are coming to convert in Israel that special conversion schools and courts have been set up all over the country to accommodate the demand. (I could tell you a personal story and maybe I will when this all settles down.)

We are already no longer two nations or two kingdoms. God has already accomplished His will in this matter. So, accept that and reject these usurpers from Eisav.

HaYovel, the "Ephraimites" and Who They Think Israel Is

27 Iyyar 5777
Day 42 of the Omer

Since our series on the Waller-War, sources have been sending in new information which should be of interest to the readers of this blog. The HaYovel 2-week-long "Recognize Jerusalem" Tour begins today and they plan to socialize with a lot of Jews as they tour around the Shomron and Jerusalem. 

Therefore, it is only prudent that Jews take note of a very significant fact. The people associated with HaYovel do not define "Israel" as Jews traditionally do

They are "Ephraimites" - Christians who claim a right of land acquisition in Eretz Yisrael based on their identity as "Israel" which is theirs by virtue of their Christian faith. You will recall from an earlier post an interview in which Rimona Frank, a messianic Jew living in Israel, advised Tommy Waller of HaYovel not to mention the "Ephraimite" identity since Jews would not understand it, but to say that they were from the "Lost" Tribes which is more favorably received.

You might also recall some clips we shared from a talk Caleb Waller of HaYovel gave at a "Messianic/Hebrew Roots Congregation" in Nashville, Tennessee called Mercy Collective just a few weeks ago.

Obviously, Caleb Waller and HaYovel have no issues with what this church teaches. If all these Jews involved with HaYovel and who will be socializing with them and their tour group over the next couple of weeks are so anxious to welcome them as "brothers", maybe they should hear straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak, exactly how they define "Who Is Israel?"

[Note: I only recommend viewing this video if you are already involved with them or are trying to save your fellow Jew from involvement with them.]

Below, John Diffenderfer, the Pastor of Mercy Collective explains, from the Ephraimite perspective, who Israel really is.

If "more and more" people are "waking up" to this knowledge, it's because preachers like this - all over the world - have been teaching it to their congregations for the past 20 or so years!

Waiting For Mashiach

27 Iyyar 5777
Day 42 of the Omer

Unfortunately, we can already see the poisonous fruit that comes from Jews and Christians mixing. The gentiles look and sound like Jews, c"v and the Jews now look and sound like Christians, r"l.

Christianity claims its truth based on misapplication and misinterpretation and outright misrepresentation of Hebrew prophecies. The Greek Testament itself testifies to the fact that Yeshu did certain things "so that the prophecy might be fulfilled..." Nowhere in our entire body of law are Jews commanded to "fulfill prophecy." Prophecy is something that is fulfilled all on its own without any intervention or effort on our part. Attempting to make it happen is a very dangerous business. It may be forced before it's proper time and who knows what kind of tragedies will ensue. It brings to mind the admonition from Shir HaShirim
"I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem; why should you awaken, and why should you arouse the love until it is desirous?"
Do you realize that the worst catastrophes have befallen us in the past because we did not wait?

Adam and Chavah were supposed to wait until Shabbat to eat the forbidden fruit, but they acted on their own and too soon!

Klal Yisrael did not wait for Moshe Rabeinu to come down from the mountain. In fear and lack of faith, they embraced the Golden Calf. If only they had waited just a little bit longer!

The closer we are to the ultimate goal, the greater is the temptation to act when we are bidden to wait.

We are at a similar juncture in human history - right before the geulah shleimah, but there are those among us who are courting disaster by not letting the process run its course; by allowing their egos to tell them that they must bring it, through their own efforts, and that anyone who says "let's wait for Mashiach" is going to stand in its way, prevent its arrival.

The geulah is like Shabbat in that - you can bring it early through effort, but no one can push it off when its time has come. And those "efforts" which can bring it early are the assiduous observance of Torah and mitzvot, not "fulfilling prophecies".

Too many Jews today have lost faith in Mashiach's coming and apparently feel they must rush in to do his job for him...
Laws Concerning Kings
Chapter XI
1. The Messianic King will arise in the future and restore the Davidic Kingdom to its former state and original sovereignty. He will build the Sanctuary and gather the dispersed of IsraelAll the laws will be re-instituted in his days as they had been aforetimes; sacrifices will be offered, and the Sabbatical years and Jubilee years will be observed fully as ordained by the Torah.
Anyone who does not believe in [Mashiach], or whoever does not look forward to his coming, denies not only [the teachings of] the other prophets but [also those] of the Torah and of Moses our Teacher.
Maybe, like their friends and "brothers" - the Christians - these Jews want us to believe that the Messiah has already come!

We've already got a Western anti-Torah government ruling over us and a fake "Sanhedrin" that is assuming authority that is not rightfully theirs and who cannot be trusted, as has been proven, not least of all by their going to the Turkish cult-leader Adnan Oktar. God forbid that they will accept the Ephraimite claims and allow hordes of Christians to settle in Eretz Yisrael!

It is already being reported that as a consequence of the "Sanhedrin's" decision to resume the count towards the Yovel, the day is not far off when the land must be redivided amongst the twelve tribes. And what if we don't know where they are or who is who? Rabbi Hillel Weiss, of this same "Sanhedrin" has the answer...
"Rabbi Weiss explained that not only is this possible without divine help, but it will be a legal requirement incumbent upon the rabbis to assign tribal territories, as was done in the time of Joshua.
“We are required to have twelve tribes,” Rabbi Weiss said. “The land will be divided according to the Biblical territories. Every Jew living in that territory will receive an inheritance and be considered as if he is from that tribe.”
Not surprisingly, the Rambam says something quite different...
3. In the era of the Messianic King, when his kingdom will be established and all of Israel will gather around him, all of them will have their pedigree determined by him, by means of the Holy Spirit that will rest upon him, as it is said, “He will sit as a refiner and purifier.” First he will purify the descendants of Levi, saying “This one is a legitimate Kohen (priest), and this one is a legitimate Levite,” while diverting those of improper lineage to the [rank of] Israelites. Thus it is said, “The governor [Nechemiah] said to them… until there will rise a Kohen with the Urim and Tumim;” from this you can infer that the determination of presumed pedigree and the public declaration of lineage is by means of the Holy Spirit.
As for the Israelites, he will only determine their tribal lineage, that is, he will inform that “this one is of such-and-such a tribe and that one is of such-and-such a tribe.”
We need to be about the business of doing the job we were put here to do and preparing ourselves to be worthy of messianic times. If anything, you'd think people would be looking for a bit more time rather than rushing to bring it all about, as if they were assured their place and position in it.

We could not free ourselves from Egypt and we cannot bring the final redemption.

The people I am describing here are arrogant and presumptuous like Korach. If you can't convince them to do teshuva, then at least get away from them so you don't share in their fate. It won't be pretty. 

"...and though he tarry, yet will I wait for him." No matter how long it takes.

A Deeper Look at COI

26 Iyyar 5777
Day 41 of the Omer

The Commonwealth Of Israel (COI), which is in the second day of its joint Jewish-Ephraimite Conference today, touts itself on its website as a "Reconciliation Project"...
"...bridging the destructive and bottomless void between two factions of the same ‘Family’ – the Nation of the God of Israel. ...The principle behind this Reconciliation Project is for both sides to approach each other in good faith, being willing to understand and respect the other side’s point of view."  
"...We totally shun coercion of souls by our associates and leaders on both sides. While allowing freedom of expression of convictions, we need to take great care not to offend and destroy the Peaceful co-existence which is our main Goal. For this reason we commend the golden principles to “Agree to disagree” on controversial issues, while building on that which we do agree upon."
This is nothing less than the One New Man doctrine brought in the Greek Testament. Jews on one end and Christians on the other, setting aside their differences, focusing on what they share in common and coming together in the middle as "one". 

However, in this scenario, such a union may enhance the gentile, but it destroys the Jew through assimilation. This is Judeo-Christianity, a new religion with the same goal as its predecessor - Hellenism. And it is the same goal Christianity has been working toward for the last 2,000 years.

Under their "Vision" proclamation, COI makes an absolutely astounding statement: 
"...the Main Purpose of God and the Main Theme of the Bible, is to restore the 12-Tribed Kingdom of Israel as that Entity that God will work through when He establishes His Universal Rule on earth."
Dear Jews, do you know what this means? It means "Gee-Zeus can't come back" until we accept the Ephraimite claims and accept them as our brothers. For 2000 years we have rejected all their efforts to have us join them, so now they have turned the tables and are demanding that we let them "join" us, but as equals, of course, and without their need to give up Christianity. 

They are willing to set aside asking us to accept Gee-Zeus, as long as we do not demand they give him up. We will "agree to disagree" on his divinity and messiahship (until they will get well established here in our midst, and then all bets are off). In fact, both the rabbis of Judah and the pastors of Ephraim want to assure us that we can go ahead and move in together and just let God sort out the religion thing afterwards.
(COI): "The Final Redemption can NOT take place and God’s Universal Kingdom can NOT be established unless these Two Houses embrace in Peace and re-Unite."
They claim that this vision of theirs is "shared" by their "associates". Just who are these "associates"?

Israel News Talk Radio (Which features Tamar Yonah who has already done two shows ( 1, 2  ) on this subject in a week.

Azamra - Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum 

Hebraic Roots Teaching Institute - "The one-stop Torah-observant messianic site, your synagogue without walls, passionate for truth" (You're gonna love this.) They have a page on their website called Our Statement of Faith (de rigeur for all Christian organizations) in which they say: " We believe that Y’shua is the Son of God, the Messiah, the Eternal One in Whom all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form,..." But, not to worry. This is probably what COI had in mind when they wrote a preceding disclaimer saying that they do not necessarily agree with everything their associates say. 

And what do you know. They like that "one new man" symbol, too! Ok, let's try to restrict this to Jewish associates or we'll be here all day.

Kol HaTor - Rabbi Avraham Feld

Momentum Israel - Don't know if it is Jewish, but it's anyway Israeli.

In my personal view, any Jew involved in promoting this atrocity is a traitor to both his people and his God and needs to do teshuva without delay. 

Information/Knowledge Is the Main Weapon In The War For Hearts And Minds

26 Iyyar 5777
Day 41 of the Omer

Someone has just informed me that Mike Huckabee is back in Israel and praying at Kever Yosef with Jews. They remarked, "He talks a nice talk, but who knows what his intentions are?"

I think this makes it rather clear...

And speaking of being informed, more information is pouring in from various sources about HaYovel's not-so-secret agenda which we will try to share here, God willing, in the coming days, as well as information that will deepen your understanding of the true nature of this so-called Ephraimite movement. Especially since so many publicly familiar Jewish names are promoting it and telling their fellow Jews that it is a "fulfillment of prophecy" and nothing to "fear".

We've been fighting a low-level kind of war, but now the knives are out and it's kill or be killed. The main weapon in this battle is information and the knowledge it confers. They come to us with a deadly poison - a kernel of truth coated in layer after layer of lies. We will slay them with the pure and unadulterated Truth of our Holy Torah.

We've been sitting under the palm tree, but the time has come to mount up and ascend Har Tavor. "Mi l'Hashem elai!" Strengthen yourself and help equip others with the knowledge and information they need to win.

Today, the summit of Mount Tabor is dominated by the Basilica of the Transfiguration, erected in 1924 by Franciscans on the site of an early Byzantine church and a later Crusader church. 
This evil plan to flood Eretz Yisrael with goyim, whether it be under the guise of love and friendship and political support or whether it be through a distortion of Torah in an appeal to unite with the ten lost tribes or settle "gerim" here - it's all nothing less than the ultimate final solution, a plan no less devious that that concocted by Bilaam, yemach shmo v'zichro!

I do not exaggerate when I tell you that some of the information which, God willing, we will bring you in the coming days is even more shocking than anything you have seen yet. But, the goal here is not 'shock and awe', but to set your mind and heart on the straight path so they do not stray from the truth. Only thus will we reach our goal of surviving spiritually intact to greet our Righteous Mashiach.

Meantime, enjoy Rabbi Yehudah HaCohen Richter's latest shiur from "The Holy Apple".

The War on Terrorism Has Expanded to Become a War on Extremism

26 Iyyar 5777
Day 41 of the Omer

And that puts authentic Jews and authentc Judaism in danger.

Excerpts from US President Donald Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia:

Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God.
...Later today, we will make history again with the opening of a new Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology—located right here, in this central part of the Islamic World.
...we must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history’s great test—to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism.
...A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive. Them. Out.
DRIVE THEM OUT of your places of worship. 
DRIVE THEM OUT of your communities. 
DRIVE THEM OUT of your holy land, and
But, who defines extremism? Does anyone naively think this is restricted to the religion of Islam? Would it surprise you at all to know that any Jew who believes that Torah should be the law of our land would be defined as "extremist"? 

Avraham Avinu may have been the first real "extremist" - HaIvri. Moshe Rabeinu was an "extremist". Pinhas was an "extremist". David HaMelech was an "extremist". The Maccabim were "extremists". Mashiach Tzidkeinu will be an "extremist". The remnant who survive to live in Days of Mashiach, every one, will qualify as an "extremist" because of their selfless devotion to HKB"H and their unwavering adherence to His Torah.

CNN Documentary Believer with Reza Aslan 4 9 17

Note: The sheer number of fallacies in this report make it impossible to address them here. But, what can you expect? It's an Arab speaking for CNN!

Suffice it to say that no parallels can be drawn between "extremist" religious Jews and the extremists in any other religion, because they act on lies while the Torah is the sole truth in this world. Just saying that and believing that the Jewish people is unique and chosen makes me one of the "extremist" enemy.

Warning To Beware - Events to Avoid

25 Iyyar 5777
Day 40 of the Omer

I had heard, of course, that there is a secular Zionism and also a religious Zionism. And I had heard, of course, of secular humanism, but "religious" humanism???
"Religious humanism is an integration of non-theistic humanist ethical philosophy with religious rituals and beliefs that center on human needs, interests, and abilities." (Wiki)
The Emerging Religious Humanism - Reason and Reverence
A new religious humanism is emerging that offers depth, meaning, and purpose without sacrificing intellectual honesty or the spiritual dimension. ...a religion for the twenty-first century.
Apparently, this is what "Zionism" has morphed into - on both ends of the spectrum. It's much less ethnocentric and much more universal.

As an example, I'll cite two references I saw just today. In one it was reported that US Congressman Eliot Engel praised Israel on the occasion of Jerusalem's 50th year of reunification by calling it "a model of religious pluralism". The Torah actually calls us to be the opposite, but there's nothing of the Torah in this. Unless you want to count the second reference from today, in which Shmuely Boteach was reported to be leading a group to dedicate a Torah scroll to the People of Rwanda saying: “I believe that the Jewish people and the Rwandan people are brothers and share not just a tragic history of mass slaughter, but more importantly a common history of renewed promise,” he said.

This New Universal Religion for Modern Humankind will encompass the Eisav-Ya'aqov hybrid aka Judeo-Christianity (a Jewish/Messianic/Ephraimite alliance) and the "peace-loving moderate" Muslims. Those joining themselves body and soul to this unholy amalgam are using this special and unprecedented occasion of the week-long 50th "Jubilee" celebration of Jerusalem's reunification to launch a spiritual war against us. 

The following events are being held as joint celebrations between Jews and Christians and are being used to encourage more Jews to jump on board. Be aware - beware - and warn others what is really at stake here.

‘THE BLESSING OF AVRAHAM’ – THIS is what it is all about – the entire Bible Message – HaShem’s Purpose for Life on earth. This is what is behind the current Phenomena which is engulfing the earth like a fast building Tsunami.
...This Promise, a Divine Blessing, was to Abraham and his descendants – and THIS is where the staggering revealing Truths for our Time come in: a Promise of “Meloh HaGoyim” (Gen. 48:19) – a multitude of nations … countless numbers of descendents, from HIS bloodline, uncountable as the sand of the sea, the dust of the earth (Gen. 13:16). They would be – now hold on firmly – GOYIM = non-Jews by today’s standards of reasoning!!
The Commonwealth of Israel (Ephraimite) Conference starts Sunday, 21 May 2017 and runs through Tuesday, 23 May 2017. It is being held in Jerusalem and several rabbis will be participating on the same program with Ephraimite speakers such as Stephen Spykerman.

This is another joint celebration with Jews, Ephraimites (HaYovel) and Christians all welcome to intermingle and party together in celebration of not only Jerusalem's 50th year of liberation, but the inauguration of Jeremy Gimpel's and Ari Abramowitz's interfaith center in Gush Etzion. Listed sponsors are Jewish Press, Arutz Sheva, United With Israel, BIN, and Israel Video Network. By the time I finish putting all this together, it probably will already have started, but I advise staying away.

HaYovel is bringing Christians, many, if not all, identifying as Ephraim, to join with Jews in celebration and to generally mix and relate and renew the "family" ties as well as getting "reacquainted" with the homeland. It runs for two weeks beginning Tuesday 23 May 2017.

This 2 week experience will include a special celebration of Jerusalem’s liberation, the celebration of Shavuot, (also in Jerusalem), an in-depth tour of Judea and Samaria with local, 5–star tour guides, 1-2 days of volunteering in Israel’s agriculture, a tour of 1-2 wineries in Samaria, and a trip to the Knesset in Jerusalem.

...HaYovel is excited to partner with Israel365 and Rabbi Tuly Weisz for the Recognize Jerusalem Trip! You will notice an updated itinerary below, with some incredible items added to the tour.

We are also excited to be working with Bridges for Peace and Israel365 for the Rejoice with Jerusalem event to be held overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem on May 25th!

The itinerary includes "teaching and study" with Jeremy Gimpel and Avraham Hermon (Assistant to Har Brachah's Rabbi Eliezer Melamed) as well as "volunteering" at Ari and Jeremy's "Farm" (see above); tours of various wineries, more teaching with Missionary Lars Enarson and a meeting with a Holocaust survivor and possibly Members of Knesset. It's my understanding that they will also be attending Tuly Weisz's Prophecy In The News Conference, which is next on our list of things to avoid, but it's not for another couple of weeks.

We brought together a group of diverse Jewish and Christian voices who are at the forefront of creating and reporting on what God is doing in Israel.
Please note that among the listed speakers for their program is well-known and well-respected Rabbi Pinchas Winston. THIS IS IN ERROR. Rabbi Pinchas Winston will NOT be a participant at this conference!

Among the supporters listed for the event are Israel365, The Israel Bible, and The Yeshiva For The Nations (all three of which are Tuly Weisz's personal projects), as well as Israel Media Network, The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding in Efrat and get ready for it... HAYOVEL!!

Put all this together with what President Trump is bringing to town and you could call it an onslaught.

This Is The Most Important Blog Post You Will Read Today

25 Iyyar 5777
Day 40 of the Omer

In the run-up to Trump's first excursion to the Middle East, after deciding in the final analysis that the US Embassy in Israel is better left in Tel Aviv, and after the fallout from a US consular official claiming that the Western Wall is in occupied territory, and yet further fallout from the Administration's map of Israel which leaves out not only the "contested West Bank", but also the long-ago-annexed Golan Heights as well, it was announced that...
"US President Donald Trump will repeat his opposition to settlement growth in the West Bank during his first visit to the region next week – and expects the Israeli government to acknowledge that his position has been heard, a senior White House official said on Thursday.
...As a sign of support for Trump’s drive to improve the Palestinian economy, Israel’s cabinet is expected to approve on Sunday a package of economic incentives for the Palestinians." (Source)
But, as if that weren't enough, another nefarious agenda is slowly being revealed.

I thought it an odd thing to say when I read this about remarks made by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked...
Shaked went on to emphasize that she did not believe the American administration has yet solidified a clear plan on the matter. "I wouldn't want Trump's visit to end with bombastic statements, but rather to be a positive courtesy visit aimed at unifying the three religions and a visit that deepens the ties between the two countries." (Source)
But, I began to take more notice when I arrived at this...
US President Donald Trump’s nine-day, four-country, first foreign tour will take him to a Muslim-world summit in Riyadh, a visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall and a meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican. It is being billed as an interfaith itinerary that will include formal addresses by the president in all three countries. (Source)
I don't think this aspect of the "tour" has been emphasized until now. And this is the most telling article of all.

Donald Trump's risky religious pilgrimage
Washington (CNN)Besieged by bad news at home, President Donald Trump is about to get religion, bigly.
In his first foreign trip as President, which begins Friday, Trump has planned a pilgrimage of sorts, visiting the homelands of all three Abrahamic faiths -- Judaism, Christianity and Islam -- before heading to Europe for meetings with Pope Francis and NATO leaders.
In all, it's an ambitious nine-day, five-country tour that will test the religious acumen and diplomatic skills of a President who, beyond courting conservative Christians and casting suspicion on Muslims, rarely talks about religion.
...Trump's national security adviser, called the President's plans unprecedented. "No President has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslims faiths all on one trip," he said at a press briefing last week.
..."What President Trump is seeking is to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress and prosperity," McMaster said.
...the key religious events during Trump's trip.
Saudi Arabia
Where: Riyadh
When: May 20-21
Key religious event: Speech to leaders of 50 Muslim countries
McMaster said Trump plans to deliver an "inspiring yet direct" speech to leaders from Muslim countries on Sunday. The topic is the "need to confront radical ideology" and the "President's hope for a peaceful vision of Islam to dominate across the world." ...
Israel/West Bank
Where: Jerusalem and Bethlehem
When: May 22-23
Key religious events: Speech at Israel Museum, prayer at Western Wall, visit to Church of the Holy Sepulchre [and Church of the Nativity]
McMaster dodged questions about Trump's stance on the wall, saying the President aims to send a religious, not political, message.
"He's going to the Western Wall mainly in connection with the theme: to connect with three of the world's great religions -- and to pay homage at each of these religious sites that he's visiting."...
Where: Vatican City
When: May 24
Key religious moment: Meeting Pope Francis
When Trump visits the Vatican Wednesday, it will be the most highly anticipated meeting between Pope and President in recent memory.

It's looking more and more like US President Donald Trump is coming to promote the One World Religion for the New World Order. I find it quite ironic that the "Nimrodites", in the process of building this End of Days Tower of Babel, are invoking the name of Avraham Avinu - the only man in the world who stood against them in his time. 

I don't know anyone who is looking forward to this. Thank God!

More of these detestable "Judeo-Christian" (combining Eisav and Ya'aqov) signs have been posted all over the Holy City showing USA "dividing" Jerusalem...

This one quotes "Ephraimite prophecies" no less. Hashem yerachem!

The one bright point in all of this is that it shows how very close we are to the "end" - their End, our Beginning!

Parashat Behar-Bechukotai 5777

23 Iyyar 5777
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Day 38 of the Omer
"According to Alshich, the Torah relates the observance of Shemittah to Israel's arrival in the land that I give you to counteract the normal human feeling that someone's property is his alone, especially the land that he works with sweat and travail. The Torah emphasizes, therefore, that it is God who gives the land." (Torah commentary on Parashat Behar)
Interestingly, it is on the very verse (v. 10) which deals particularly with HaYovel - the Jubilee year - that the commentary states...
"The Jubilee laws bring home to people that the land and freedom are Divine gifts and that ownership reverts to whom He wills it."
After a long discourse on the laws concerning HaYovel, the Torah says...
"For the Children of Israel are servants to Me, they are My servants, whom I have taken out of the land of Egypt - I am HASHEM, your God. You shall not make idols for yourselves,...for I am HASHEM your God." (Vayikra 25.55-26.1)
This is followed immediately by Parashat Bechukotai and the chilling tochachah...
"This Sidrah begins with the idyllic blessings that await the Jewish people if they live up to their covenant with God, and are thus worthy of God's esteem. It then proceeds to the tochachah, Admonition, a sobering account of punishments, frustrations, and curses that will be the inevitable outcome of any attempt to destroy the covenant. Indeed, though God's underlying mercy prevents all of these curses befalling Israel in any one unbearable instant, a careful reading of Jewish history - and perhaps the twentieth century in particular - shows that they have taken place at intervals, before and during the exiles. Just as the curses have come, however, so the final blessings will come, for the final words of the Admonition are God's irrevocable oath that He will remember His covenant with the Patriarchs and redeem His children." (Torah Commentary)
And if anyone remains in doubt, for those who believe that they can set aside the Torah and put their own reasoning ahead of God's clear commands, our haftarah gives some strong advice...
So says HASHEM: "Accursed is the man who trusts in people and makes mortals his strength, and turns his heart away from HASHEM.* He will be like a lone tree in the wilderness and will not see when goodness comes; he will dwell in the arid desert, in a sulfurious, uninhabited land. Blessed is the man who trusts in HASHEM, then HASHEM will be his security. He will be like a tree planted near water, which will spread its roots alongside brooks and will not see when heat comes, whose foliage will be ever fresh, who will not worry in years of drought and will never stop producing fruit." (Yirmiyahu 17.5-8)
[*If a man puts his trust in people, his heart will turn away from Hashem.]

Yirmiyahu HaNavi then makes an interesting observation: "The heart is most deceitful of all and it is fragile; who can know it?" (Yirmiyahu 17.9) Good Jews can go wrong because their hearts lead them astray. They feel misplaced mercy and compassion where the Torah demands justice and reason. They choose the heart over the mind: "I, HASHEM, plumb the heart and test the mind; to give a man according to his ways, like the fruit of his deeds." (Yirmiyahu17.10)

Reward and punishment, the curse of exile and the promise of redemption. And the war for hearts and minds. That is our parashah this week. 

And it has been the focus of this blog all week, as we have fought a hard battle for the hearts and minds of Am Yisrael to shun idolatry and cease dependence upon idolaters and to close the door firmly in the face of it. 

The time for learning our lessons is over. Now, we are sitting our final exam. Who will pass, who will fail? It's all up to you!

The Waller-War and Why It Matters - Part 5 (Final)

22 Iyyar 5777
Day 37 of the Omer

Part 1Part 2, Part 3, Part 4

One Ephraimite leader put it like this. He said the Ephraimite movement is a process: 1) the "Spirit" called the ten tribes; 2) they became fascinated by Jewish things; 3) they began to establish relationships with Jews; 4) now, they are ready to "come home".

HaYovel is a major part of that "process" which they have been patiently building upon. I almost said "selflessly", but that would not be true. They have benefitted, not only spiritually, but materially, from their work in Israel. (See here if you missed it.)

But, above the emotionally-manipulated masses of Christians who are already deluded by their false religion (what's a little more delusion after all?), there stands a more sinister agenda. I'll let the following video clips speak for themselves. 

You tell me, what is the difference between this and the Ephraimite vision of Christian Ephraim and Jewish Judah coming together as "one" in the Commonwealth of Israel?

There's no difference. The "mystery" of the "One New Man" is just another way of describing Jewish annihilation.

I'll leave you with a final clip of Rosemary Schindler who is an ordained minister. She married into the Schindler family and capitalizes on Oscar Schindler's name and memory among Jews to further her Christian cause. 

This concludes the series on HaYovel, but there will be a final word on the matter tomorrow, God willing.
