Why is Tommy Waller excited about this book launch? Because it will help to further the Ephraimite/Hayovel long-term plan for claiming their inheritance in Eretz Yisrael by building relationships that bring Jews and Christians together as “one new man.”

In May 2017,  an interview given by Rivkah Lambert to New Covenant Israel (NCI) Radio* in which she described her book idea and asked for people to send her their stories. She compiled them into this book which purportedly represents the “Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews.”

According to one of the NCI objectives:

Unite, as much as we can, the Whole House of Israel—both Jew and Gentile, made up of the House of Judah and their companions, and the House of Ephraim and their companions—into one Body, and One New Man: New Covenant Israel!

But, the term “non-Jew” can be misleading. The majority of the names of people whose stories are included in this book are associated with the Ephraimite Christian movement like Tommy Waller. And this language – “Torah Awakening” – is used on their websites, except they use the word “Christian” rather than non-Jew.

Those chosen to be in this book, by and large, remain believers in and followers of the Christian man-god Yeshu despite however many years they’ve been in contact with “Orthodox” Jews. They are supposed to be on a “path”, but they aren’t arriving at the truth. And they are supposed to be “awakening to Torah,” but they remain with eyes firmly closed to the Torah’s truth. We were told in 2006 that Tommy Waller was on this same path that turns out to lead nowhere as today he has not budged an inch from his original Christian faith.

Fast forward five months. The book is finished and ready to be launched…

When Mike Clayton** speaks of Christians awakening to or embracing Torah, what Jew would imagine that it’s just another veiled reference to the Christian man-god Yeshu?

It would be funny if it were not so catastrophic. The Jews think the Christians are awakening to the Torah while the Christians think this new openness on the part of religious Jews signals their awakening to Yeshu, God forbid!

Capture

Two thousand years ago, the Maccabees fought a 25-year war to eradicate Hellenism from our land. It wasn’t long before the Greek Hellenism was replaced by the Roman Christianity as the next attempt to assimilate Jews into extinction.

After 1900 years of failure, they finally hit upon the right combination for some success. “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” At first it was called Hebrew Christianity, then Messianic Judaism followed by the so-called Ephraimite movement. Daniel Botkin talks about it in an article he wrote in 2002 called “Jewish People and the Two-House teaching”, meaning the two houses of Israel – Judah and Ephraim:

We should be aware of the fact that Orthodox Jews do expect Mashiach (Messiah) to regather the twelve tribes. Perhaps it could be pointed out to them that the descendants of the tribes are indeed being regathered from among the Gentile nations as they come to Yeshua and into the Messianic Community.

Centuries ago, when virtually all Gentile Christians just lived a typical Catholic or Protestant lifestyle, the suggestion would not have been so feasible. But now that so many Gentile Christians are embracing the Torah, honoring the true Sabbath, and celebrating the Biblical Feasts, the idea may not seem too far-fetched for Orthodox Jews to consider it. (Some already do believe it, by the way.)

And if they are persuaded that many of these “Messianic Gentiles” are really descendants of the ten northern tribes and are awakening to their Israelite identity because of their faith in Yeshua of Nazareth, then they might also be persuaded to consider His Messianic claims more seriously than they did in the past, when they viewed Christianity as just another pagan religion.

So, this “phenomenon” which Rivkah Lambert is so eager to connect Jews with is just another Christian ploy to bring Jews and Christians together into one people under Yeshu.

How unfortunate that she also has the cooperation and apparent approval of some high profile Jewish names to back her up. The back cover of the book lists Rabbi Tovia Singer as a contributor and prominently includes an apparent haskamah with a brachah for the book’s success by Rabbi Alon Anava.

25083-16b3oz

Despite the bold display of the prophetic quote on its front cover (Zech 8:23) ……there is no way the pure words of this prophecy describe the idolatrous Christian connivers featured in the book’s pages.

I pray with all my heart that these misguided Jews will awaken (and soon!) to the error of their ways. As for the rest of Am Yisrael – be aware, be informed, keep your distance and warn others.

WAR AT SUKKOT! (Part 1 – Introduction)

Article by Palm Tree of Devorah

12 Tishrei 5778

In a way it has already started and in a way it has been going on already for a very long time. But, we Jews tend to forget. That’s why “remembering” is a mitzvah.

Call it a “love” invasion, but it is an invasion nonetheless. Hordes of invaders flooding across the borders of Eretz Yisrael seeking to murder Jewish souls with hugs and kisses (and $$$). The invaders themselves find this idea laughable, as do many who identify themselves as Jews, but let me assure you, in the eyes of our Creator, it is no laughing matter.

…If your brother, the son of your mother, tempts you in secret or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your embrace, or your friend, who is as your own soul saying, “Let us go and worship other gods, which neither you, nor your forefathers have known.”

Of the gods of the peoples around you, whether near to you or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; you shall not desire him, and you shall not hearken to him; neither shall you pity him, have mercy upon him, nor shield him.

But you shall surely kill him, your hand shall be the first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

And you shall stone him with stones so that he dies, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. (Devarim 13:7-11)

If this is how we are commanded to respond to those who are dearest to our hearts and fellow Jews, how much more so to those foreigners among the nations! And if this is how we are commanded to respond to one who simply entices us to go stray, how much more so one who actually accomplishes it!

Tommy Waller’s Hayovel Ministry is the tip of the spear in this war because it has managed to do what no other Christian ministry has done. They have infiltratedYehudah and Shomron; practically establishing Christian yishuvim right next to the Jews and have the backing of prominent so-called “Orthodox” rabbis.

In the beginning, we were told that Tommy Waller, his family and his volunteers were Bnei Noach, that they had left Christianity. When we proved they were still Christians, their vociferous Jewish supporters said, “Yes, they are Christians, but they don’t proselytize.” Then, when we brought proof that they were indeed proselytizing, they came back with, “Well, what do you expect, they are just doing what Christians do, but not one Jew has been led astray by them.”

The Torah does not tell us to wait until the Jewish soul is caught in the trap before acting to prevent it. Enticement itself is a criminal act.

This is so much more than just Christians being Christians and wanting Jews to be “saved” by faith in their man-god Yeshu. This is a tactic of Gog uMagog and it always has been. It has always been the Satan’s best plan for assimilating Jews out of existence. He has been working on it and perfecting it over time and if the degree of support they command within the Jewish community is any indication, Hayovel is succeeding beyond imagining.

Gentiles and Jews coming together to form “one new man” has been the stated goal of Christianity since its beginnings. Whereas before the founding of modern Israel, Jews were pressured to cross over to the Christian side and give up their Jewish identity, today, the Christians are crossing over to the Jewish side claiming to be restoring the “Jewish roots” of their faith. Gentile believers in Yeshu are now calling themselves “Messianic Ephraimites” and Jewish believers in Yeshu are called “Messianic Jews.” Together, they are proclaimed to be “one new man” in relationship with the Christian man-god-messiah.

But, this is the same “one new man” the Apostle Paul lauded…

“For [Yeshu] is our peace,…who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two,….” i.e.Jews and Gentiles. (Source: The False Testament)

This is the goal of all attempts to proselytize Jews. Were this ever to be accomplished, it would be the end of Am Yisrael and the end of Judaism. So, yes,this is a war – a war for the hearts and minds of Jews and Hayovel is the tip of the sword at our necks.

The claim that Tommy Waller personally has never proselytized Jews might be true. But, there is ample proof that while he keeps his hands clean in order to make this claim true, others are doing his dirty work for him. (This tactic has worked for many other Christian ministries in Israel as their leadership stays apart from the actual proselytizing, knowing all the while that those under their leadership are doing it for them.) It apparently never occurs to them that they would not have to revert to such subterfuge if their religion were true.

In Tomer Devora’s recent blog post, “There’s Nothing New Under the Sun”, the author explains how Tommy Waller’s latest public apology tour is merely another evangelical tactic straight out of “The Book of Spiritual Warfare According to Paul”. Without belaboring the point, it cuts through the veneer of Waller’s apology by explaining his clever use of verbal gymnastics to delude those who already see Waller as a kosher Santa Claus. Those who are ignorant of evangelical doctrine and tactics are vulnerable to the two-faced Waller. And too many naive Jew are impressed by the crocodile tears of evangelicals.

Missionary activity outside Tel Aviv Savidor terminus 28 Sep 2018, Yovel may not be Hayovel but it’s the same shit different pile non the less.

Waller is as deadly as any crocodile. But he is also crafty. Like all successful evangelicals, Waller mastered the doctrine of wearing a hundred different masks to fool a hundred people. One mask for prostitutes. Another one for robbers. One for the poor. Another for the greedy. And an assortment of masks to trick Jews with kipot. There are even masks to fool Rabbis, Hashem help us! The perverse spectacle of Waller’s apology tour, is a direct result of the effect some of us are having on exposing this issue. Simply put, Waller and his Jewish enablers are terrified of recent revelations (see video below) which expose Hayovel’s true agenda.

On the one hand there are the shrill Jews who libel and slander us and accuse us of the same. The ones who refuse to respond to evidence, and have the nerve to accuse of us wrong-doing. They are biting back like wounded predators, with their incessant false allegations of “ruining good names and denigrating Torah scholars”. All of it is untrue.

On the other hand, you have the evangelicals themselves, taking the soft “Brother Esau” approach. Taking the punches in stride, to show humility and understanding. For the intellectually inclined, the facts speak for themselves. But Hayovel’s Jewish supporters are not intellectually honest. And they are emotionally invested in friendships with these people. If they were intellectual about this issue, this would be a non-issue. Our claim is stronger. We have the data to back up our position.

Shame on any Jew whose emotional spine is so bent over, that he actually falls for Waller’s cleverly orchestrated apologetics. Considering the evidence, it is astounding that ANY Jew would have anything to do with these Hayovel swine. Consider the following video from February 2017, when Tommy Waller let down his hair among his “believing” friends. Naturally, Tommy Waller is having to respond to these videos so he is working over-time to give it “context”. On his own Facebook page, they keep removing these videos each time they are posted in the comments section. Why is that? Because these videos expose Waller as a charlatan who will never renege on his evangelical mandate, but will readily change tactics to achieve his results.

Two final points: If certain Jewish “leaders” don’t want us posting pictures of them taking photos with missionaries, they should heed my advice:

Don’t take pictures with missionaries!

And if they were naive and unaware in the past, then they have an obligation to:

1. publicly declare it to be so
2. be humble and educate themselves
3. disengage from any and all similar associations in the future.
But if you take a public photo-op with missionary Mike Isley and you are in the public eye, then you can expect that we will share it with the Jewish masses, because YOUR irresponsible behavior endangers Jews. A Jew who cares for his fellow Jews has no other choice. (For more on Mike Isley: http://jewishisrael.ning.com/page/jewish-sermon-on-the-mount)

To our frightened Jewish and non-Jewish detractors: Your impotent threats and petulance don’t matter to those of us who are committed to this spiritual battle. We will not be cowed by bullying tactics. Our only concern is that the Torah truth prevails. It is NEVER personal or premised on hatred of Jews or decent gentiles. It is always about the halacha, and the inherent dangers of such toxic relationships.

There is One True Judge. One day, all of those tragic Jews who joined hands with Hayovel will have to answer to Hakadosh Baruch Hu for their outrageous actions. The day of Teshuva is upon us. May Hashem forgive those who engage in authentic repentance, and plant wisdom in the minds of those who are in dire need of it. And may The Almighty strike down the destroyers of Judaism, whether they wield the sword, or wield a hoe with the false smile of a distant brother with ill intentions.

“There’s Nothing New Under the Sun”

Hayovel

Tishrei 5778

I regret that the subject of the first post of the new year will be Tommy Waller, but evil doesn’t take holidays. In fact, it seems to ramp up around the holidays. Even now, Xians are pouring into Israel for “The Feast”, as they do every year at this time, and all of them are looking for a weak place through the Jewish armor to reach the Jewish soul and steal it for Yeshu.

A few people have asked my opinion about the new video of Tommy Waller calling on his fellow Xians to renounce “replacement theology.” Sadly, I must tell you that absolutely nothing has changed here.

Since the beginning of their ministry, the Wallers have said that they do not want Jews to become “Xians,” i.e., give up Jewish practice and ritual, but they do want them to be “messianic” Jews, i.e. believers in Yeshu (without giving up Jewish ritual).

Giving up replacement theology simply means agreeing that Jews, as Jews who believe in Yeshu and go to “synagogue” instead of church, ALSO have a place alongside the rest of Christendom. This is just a last, sad and bad attempt on the part of Xians to reel in the Jewish fish by trying to convince them that they can live on the land and yet remain fish.

In the past, a Jew who believed Yeshu was the messiah had to convert to another religion, leave the synagogue forever and go to church. As a demonstration of his sincerity, he was required to eat a ham sandwich. Why? Because, according to the Xians of those times, God was through with the Jews and had a new people known as the church. If a Jew wanted to be counted as part of God’s people he had to give up on being a Jew and become a Xian.

What Tommy Waller and his fellow “Israel-loving” Xians claim to have suddenly discovered is that a Jew can remain a Jew and still come to faith in their Yeshu, who is also reclaiming his Jewishness in these latter days. They still believe that only those who put their faith and hope in Yeshu will be redeemed, but it includes both those who identify as Jewish as well as those who identify as Xian. The two are “one new man” with their shared belief in Yeshu and together they are equal heirs of the promises made to the forefathers: Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’aqov.

Tommy’s little speech is absolutely nothing new. It’s the same thing Jews for Jesus has been saying for the past fifty years.

See herehere and here.

This is my message to Tommy Waller:

This is just another misguided attempt to convince Jews to take another look at Yeshu, to present him and his message in a more acceptable light. Your problem is – you are still wrong. Yeshu was NOT a good Jew. He was NOT G-d. He was a man who sinned and died for his own sins. He saved no one, not then, not now and not ever. He never was and never will be the Messiah.

There is some perverseness in the hearts of Xians who can come so close to the truth and yet fail to recognize it and embrace it. Your judgment and consequently, your punishment, will be especially severe. I urge you to consider the possibility that you could be mistaken. That is your first step towards real salvation.

25 New ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ Revealed

 25 New 'Dead Sea Scrolls' Revealed

This scroll fragment preserves parts of the Book of Leviticus, in which God promises to reward the people of Israel if they observe the Sabbath and obey the 10 commandments.

More than 25 previously unpublished “Dead Sea Scroll” fragments, dating back 2,000 years and holding text from the Hebrew Bible, have been brought to light, their contents detailed in two new books.

The various scroll fragments record parts of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Samuel, Ruth, Kings, Micah, Nehemiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Joshua, Judges, Proverbs, Numbers, Psalms, Ezekiel and Jonah. The Qumran caves ― where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered ― had yet to yield any fragments from the Book of Nehemiah; if this newly revealed fragment is authenticated it would be the first.

Scholars have expressed concerns that some of the fragments are forgeries. [See Photos of the Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments]

These 25 newly published fragments are just the tip of the iceberg. A scholar told Live Science that around 70 newly discovered fragments have appeared on the antiquities market since 2002. Additionally, the cabinet minister in charge of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), along with a number of scholars, believes that there are undiscovered scrolls that are being found by looters in caves in the Judean Desert. The IAA is sponsoring a new series of scientific surveys and excavations to find these scrolls before looters do.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in a series of 11 caves by the archaeological site of Qumran in the Judean Desert, near the Dead Sea. During that time, archaeologists and local Bedouins unearthed thousands of fragments from nearly 900 manuscripts.

Some of the Bedouin sold their scrolls in Bethlehem through an antiquities dealer named Khalil Iskander Shahin, who went by the name “Kando.” Shahin died in 1993 and his son William Kando now runs his business and estate.

Many scholars believe that the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden in the Qumran caves around A.D. 70, during a Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire. They may have been written by a Jewish sect known as the Essenes.

Qumran and its caves are located in the West Bank, a territory captured by Israel from Jordan during the Six-Day War in 1967. Jordan at times has asserted that the Dead Sea Scrolls belong to them.

Although the term Dead Sea Scrolls usually refers to the scrolls found at Qumran, there have been scrolls found in caves at other sites in the Judean Desert that are considered Dead Sea Scrolls.

The 25 newly published scroll fragments were purchased by two separate collectors. [Gallery of Dead Sea Scrolls: A Glimpse of the Past]

Between 2009 and 2014, Steve Green, the owner of Hobby Lobby, a chain of arts and crafts stores, purchased 13 of the fragments, which he has donated, along with thousands of other artifacts, to the Museum of the Bible. Green is helping to fund construction of the museum, scheduled to open in Washington, D.C., next fall. (A fly-through of the museum can be seen on YouTube).

A team of scholars has published details of these donated fragments in the book volume “Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments in the Museum Collection” (Brill, 2016).

The provenance of this batch of scrolls is not certain.

“Some of these fragments must have come from Qumran, probably Cave 4, while the others may have derived from other sites in the Judean Desert,” wrote Emanuel Tov, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in the book volume. “Unfortunately, little is known about the provenance of these fragments because most sellers did not provide such information at the time of the sale.”

Antiquities dealer William Kando told Live Science that he doesn’t know where the donated fragments originated.

Scientists are conducting tests on the donated fragments to help determine if any are forgeries, said Michael Holmes, executive director of the Museum of the Bible Scholars Initiative, in a statement sent to Live Science.

The results will be combined with an analysis of the writing to help determine what the chances are of the different fragments being forgeries.

“The results will be incorporated in our future museum exhibits, inviting visitors to grasp and engage with issues involved with assessing authenticity,” Holmes said.

Martin Schøyen, a collector from Norway, owns the other batch of the recently revealed Dead Sea Scrolls. The texts from those fragments are detailed in the book “Gleanings from the Caves: Dead Sea Scrolls and Artefacts from The Schøyen Collection” (Bloomsbury, 2016). Also detailed in the book are other artifacts related to the scrolls, including a linen wrapper in which one of the Dead Sea Scrolls was found. [Photos: Who ‘Penned’ the Dead Sea Scrolls?]

Schøyen, who has a vast collection of antiquities, began collecting biblical manuscripts in 1986. “The ultimate challenge had become to acquire a fragment of the Dead Sea Scrolls with a biblical text,” Schøyen wrote in the book. “It was for me a ‘Mission: Impossible.'”

His determination paid off as, gradually, he was able to track down scroll fragments that were for sale by a number of sources. He bought several from a family collection that is now in in Zurich (the name was not published) and several more from the descendants of tourists or collectors who had purchased scrolls from Shahin’s shop in Bethlehem in the 1950s. He also purchased a few fragments that were once owned by two scholars who had worked in the Qumran caves as students in 1948 (the students got the fragments as gifts from a bishop who supported the work).

“The quest that started as a ‘Mission: Impossible’ in 1986, gradually proceeded to become a collection of [about] 115 fragments from around 27 different scrolls,”  Schøyen said. He added that some of the fragments in his collection come from caves 1, 4 and 11 at Qumran, while some come from other caves in the Judean Desert.

A highlight from the newly published Museum of the Bible collection is a fragment from the Book of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 2:13-16).

The fragment tells of a man named Nehemiah who lived during the fifth century B.C., at a time after Jerusalem had been destroyed by theBabylonians in 586 B.C. The Persian Empire had taken over Babylon’s territory and the Jews, who had been forced to leave Israel by the Babylonians, were allowed to return home.

The fragment records Nehemiah’s visit to a ruined Jerusalem, finding that its gates had been “consumed by fire.” According to the fragment text, he inspects the remains of the walls before starting work on rebuilding them.

Scholars have noted in previous studies that archaeologists hadn’t found any copies of the Book of Nehemiah in the Qumran caves. How this fragment came to America is unknown, and scholars say they can’t be sure it’s from Qumran.

“It is assumed to come from Cave 4 [at Qumran], but in the final analysis it must be said that the provenance of the fragment remains unknown,” wrote Martin G. Abegg Jr., a professor at Trinity Western University who led the team that analyzed the fragment, in the book “Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments in the Museum Collection.”

A highlight from the Schøyen Collection is a fragment containing part of the Book of Leviticus. In the fragment text, God promises that if the Sabbath is observed and the Ten Commandments are obeyed, the people of Israel will be rewarded.

“If you walk according to my laws, and keep my commandments and implement them, then I will grant your rains in their season, so that the earth shall yield its produce and the trees of the field their fruit,” part of the fragment reads (translation by Torleif Elgvin).

“I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down untroubled by anyone; and I will exterminate vicious beasts from the land, and no sword shall cross your land,” the fragment continues. “I will look with favour upon you, and make you fertile and multiply you.”

Schøyen published a note from William Kando saying that the Leviticus scroll fragment was once owned by his father who got it from Bedouin in 1952 or 1953 and it was sold, along with other fragments, to a customer in Zurich in 1956.

Anti-Semitic Sculpture Outside Luther’s Church Creates Controversy

The highly anticipated 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation is coming up in 2017 and the epicenter of the Reformation, Wittenberg, Germany, has been preparing for years. Visitors from around the world are already trickling in to visit historical sites such as the Castle Church where Martin Luther is purported to have posted his 95 Theses condemning the Catholic Church’s sale of indulgences.

However, St. Mary’s, or the Town Church, in Wittenberg, where Luther regularly preached, married his wife Katharina von Bora, and baptized their six children, is currently drawing greater attention because of a challenge to remove a 700-year-old anti-Semitic sculpture from its facade:
