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!


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.


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.


* New Covenant Israel is a fellowship of believers, both Jew and Gentile, who embrace the love and mercy of YHWH and desire to abide in His New Covenant. We understand that Yeshua regained the dominion of Earth from Satan to re-establish the Kingdom of God on this planet, and that Yeshua passed that dominion on to the New Covenant Believers.

A date for Your Diary

The latest dooms day scenario:


The crazed loon department of Christianity has started up again.

Previous nonsense WRT the blood moons and general spooky stuff click here and here.

For the mean time a date for your diary:

Part of the irony of these references is that this year, September 23, 2015 is the Jewish Day of Atonement. Moreover, the blood moon tetrad has been happening on all the Jewish feasts the last 3 moons, and will fall again on 9/28/15.

The implication is that it is possible God’s wrath will be poured out on the entire earth, starting on the 23rd of September by allowing Satan to have full, unrestrained rule upon the earth (see Revelation 12:12) upon those who have not received Jesus as the atonement for their sins. In essence, those who reject Jesus will have to pay the atonement fee themselves, and that means wrath.

pope alien

The latest is that the new pope will be an alien in fact some wacky groups insist that angel/ demons will in the end impersonate space aliens. Guess who will come to the rescue and save humanity from the aliens? It will the very same shape shifting pope who is an alien!! And all to stop you from believing in Jesus and not just any Jesus but Yeshuwahah or is it Yeshyrashiwah? Apparently the spelling of this name is of vital importance to your salvation too. Imagine, salvation by spelling!!! Here is the evidence of the more believable practice of photoshoping  as opposed to shape shifting:

A Question you Should not Ask

LOSHON5A relationship akin to sleeping with the enemies of the Jewish people is already operating here in Israel. The relationship includes a collusion between Jewish organizations who supposedly support Jews in Israel and the whole missionary industry which covers a wide spectrum of various brands of Christianity. An ongoing unholy alliance between Roman Catholics, Evangelical Protestant groups and the so-called ‘Messianic Judaism” they support is presently becoming more brazen in its efforts to convert Jews to Christianity. The collusion sees a huge chunk of cash being proffered to the money/ power/ prestige hungry leaders of certain Jewish Organizations all under the guise of mutual respect, support of Israel and love of the Jewish people.

Any attempt to address concerns is immediately branded by the recipients of the huge chunk of cash as promoters of Loshon Hara. But the question still remains.

When will we Jews, our politicians, rabbis, business and community leaders snap out of their hallucinations that this relationship, as we ourselves have allowed it to unfold, is anything but poison to our people and country?

The recipients use every means at their disposal to quash any concerns raised about the cash cow they are currently drawings huge sums of money from, after all its not easy living here in Israel!

loshon 2In an appeal by a Rabbi Melamed concerning Rabbi Riskin to judge the Rabbi fairly. Rabbi Melamed quotes the most moderate responses to Rabbi Riskins enthusiam for Christianity:

The most moderate responder wrote: “I was shocked and embarrassed. I really admire you, Rabbi Melamed, and your books, etc … I simply think that you are unaware of Rabbi Riskin’s sympathetic views of Christianity and oto ha’ish (literally ‘that man’, or a euphemism for the Jewish founder of Christianity) … God have mercy … Rabbi, I suggest you have a look at the videos on YouTube where Rabbi Riskin speaks the praises of Christianity and oto ha’ish. The videos are in English. With this in mind, I’d be happy to understand how you could defend Rabbi Riskin.”

Rabbi Melamed supports Rabbi Riskin and discusses debatable details of the video without a broader enquiry. The broader enquiry would ask why in the world would an organization founded and directed by the Chief Rabbi of Efrat, Shlomo Riskin, and staffed by Orthodox Jews enter into the church-building business? Surely it is not a mitzvah incumbent upon the Jewish people to facilitate the spreading of the gospel of jesus christ anywhere in the world, let alone in Israel! But then again, Rabbi Riskin and his rabbinic partners have proclaimed that Christians and Jews jointly share Abraham’s covenant with G-d. Riskin and the CJCUC have also sanctioned everything from Jews engaging in theological dialogue with Christians to Jews entering churches to granting jesus rabbinic “smicha”.

Israel Jewish Council for Interreligious Relations IJCIR

Now at this stage you may hear the cries of Loshon Hara go up to silence the opposition?

However, according to the laws of Loshon Hara, JewishIsrael has sought through various channels to meet with Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, the Rabbi of the Har Bracha community in the Shomron, with regard to his halachic and hashkafic pronouncements pertaining to the deployment of Hayovel Ministry volunteers in the fields of Yehuda and Shomron (and now in the Golan Heights as well), a service Rabbi Melamed deems as a “fulfillment of prophecy”.  These volunteers are recruited from a number of messianic Christian sects and cults, which are missionary in nature.

On Thursday, October 10th, 2013, JewishIsrael board members met in Har Bracha with Avraham Hermon, whom Rabbi

Melamed assigned the task of meeting with JewishIsrael and listening to what they had to say. The meeting lasted for over an hour, during which time JewishIsrael gave a presentation of what they viewed as the problems caused by the deployment of Hayovel Ministries’ volunteers in Israel. Some of the topics the presentation covered included:

  • The missionary nature of Tommy Waller’s and Hayovel’s past and present agenda
  • Problematic activities and missionary associations, both past and present
  • Contradictory statements relayed to Rav Melamed and Har Bracha representatives
  • Problematic venues of recruitment
  • HaYovel’s present theology and vision

At the end of the presentation, JewishIsrael staff informed Hermon that they planned to go ahead in the near future with publication of the information presented, and that JewishIsrael hoped Rav Melamed would review the material shortly and respond with his opinion.

Stand with usOn Sunday, October 13, 2013, Avraham Hermon conveyed Rav Melamed’s response to the materials they conveyed to him, saying that Rav Melamed retained his position regarding Hayovel Ministries.

Following their meeting in Har Bracha, other prominent rabbis viewed the very same presentation. These rabbis have concluded that the material presented is of great concern, very serious in nature, and requires follow-up.  One rabbi from the Shomron added that he doesn’t understand how Rav Melamed could possibly ignore such vital information.”

Ignoring such vital information is part and parcel of the poison that some of the Jewish people have swallowed in subscribing to the doublespeak currently being banded around and accepted on both sides of the Christian / Jewish equation.

The weird effects of the term follow the money certainly seems to apply with respect to Diane Weber Bederman’s enquiry for a review of one of the funders of the organization StandWithUs; the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ). The weird effects of trying to follow the money also possibly opens up to the rational inquirer the world of doublespeak. Doublespeak with its love of Jews/ Israel and mutual respect promoted by the likes of StandWithUs, perhaps? Kind of like the doublespeak of the left-wing BBC with their mantra that Islam is a religion of peace contrasted with the reality of bombs going off all over the place and hey presto: a piece of you here and a piece of you there, perhaps?

What is really important in the world of doublespeak is the ability to lie, whether knowingly or unconsciously, and to get away with it; and the ability to use lies and choose and shape facts selectively, blocking out those that do not fit an agenda or program.

At this stage in the game we see a gaping dissonance between the doublespeak of not proselytizing and in reality aggressively proselytizing by various Christian organisations. Worst still, some of our Jewish leaders choosing to remain silent, which is the same as consenting to the conversion of Jews. Sadly also that some of our Jewish leaders are more than happy to see the spiritual suicide of their fellow Jews for the sake of financial gain.

Its time for all Jews to make Havdalah using the correct criteria specified by the clear and widely accepted rulings from modern Torah authorities prohibiting interfaith theological encounters which blur the lines between religious faiths. In other words stop taking the money and do the right thing!!

The Mumbo Jumbo Train

Christians are being encouraged via Christine Darg and ‘orthodox’ Jew Gidon Ariel to investigate the spooky matter of apparent coincidents between predictable phenomena of the planetary movements and the weekly parsha! Apparently:

The total solar eclipse will take place over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, coinciding with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year. The particular timing of Friday’s solar occurrence has never happened before in human history.


The weekend Torah portion read by millions of Jews around the world describes the Tabernacle dedicated on the first of Nissan designed by master craftsman Bezalel. According to Gidon Ariel, Orthodox Jew and co-founder of Root Source, the connection to Friday’s solar eclipse runs even deeper.

“The Torah portion describes God choosing the chief architect Bezalel: ‘And Moses said to the Children of Israel, ‘See, God has proclaimed by name Bezalel.’” What’s amazing is that, in Hebrew, the name Bezalel literally means ‘in the shadow of God,’” Ariel told Breaking Israel News.

The connection between the Torah portion and this week’s solar eclipse is clear to O’Dell. “It just goes to show how much higher are His ways than ours. God is truly incredible and the ultimate hero of every story.”

And the ‘orthodox’ Jewish approbation by non other than Gidon Ariel:

The sign of the Blood Moon and solar eclipse are, for Ariel, a sign of greater things to come between Jews and Christians. “In our generation, we are noticing an outpouring of teshuva (repentance) on the part of many righteous Christians, recognition of the historical crimes perpetrated by Christians against Jews, and attempts to right those wrongs.”

Wake up and smell the $tarbuck$ folks!!

Now this is where they tell Menashe to shut up. The problem is that this week’s parsha coinciding with 20 March 2015 is Parshat Vayikra which does not have a mention of Bezalel, in fact the whole of Leviticus (Vayikra) does not have a mention of Bezalel either! It was in fact last week’s parsha which included mention of Bezalel.

Christians currently being confused by the superstitious mumbo jumbo which relegates the Torah to the level of a pack of Tarot cards are blissfully unaware that several ways of reading the Torah have been utilized by Jews in centuries past! Included in the several ways of reading the Torah was to read the entire Torah over a 3 year period. Now how about that? How is that going to be abused by Christians and those who erroneously encourage them for the sake of a profit?

We may say with respect to the profit currently being derived from the latest matching up of the Torah portion also adds to and is currently married with the previous deception of blood moons:

Ariel believes that the Christian fascination with the Blood Moons is particularly instructive and a lesson God is using to teach the Jews.

Well profit Gidon Ariel our book and even the Christian New Testament says otherwise.

The fly in the ointment or the elephant in the room is that even the New Testament actually discredits and disproves[see Rev 6:12-13, Mat 24:29] missionary celebrities’ claims about blood moons. Even Christians with lesser bulging waistlines and/ or multi-million dollar budgets are not blind to the nonsense that plops out of the organs of the missionary celebrities’ agenda to love and ble$$ Israel.

The elephant in the room of course is the often glossed over principle of understanding a passage with respect to immediate context and wider context. If you are averse to immediate context and wider context and do not want facts to get in the way of what you want to believe stop reading here, otherwise:

Immediate context:

Before them the earth quakes, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness. .. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD…. The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine. Joel 2:10, 31, 3:15

Wider context:

7 When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light. 8 All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you; I will bring darkness over your land, declares the Sovereign Lord. Ezek 32:7,8

From the above verses it is patently clear that any kind of blood moon and the coming messianic age and the dreadful day of the LORD is accompanied by earthquakes, the sun, moon and stars becoming dark. Present day blood moons (lunar eclipses) are not a fulfillment of biblical prophecy because absent are the accompanying earthquakes, the sun, moon and stars becoming dark etc…

Scientifically during a blood moon or lunar eclipse, the earth’s atmosphere scatters out shorter-wavelength light (green through violet) leaving mostly longer-wavelength light (red, orange, and yellow) in the earth’s umbra. This is why sunsets and sunrises generally are red, and why most lunar eclipses ‘blood moons’ are red.

Mark Blitz and John Hagee use the term Blood Moon to apply to the full moons of a ‘very rare’ ongoing tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons) which began on the night of April 14-15, 2014 followed by next Blood Moon eclipse of October 7-8, 2014. In attempt to hype things up and increase book sales thereby, Darg, Ariel, Hagee and Blitz ignore that lunar eclipses are not that unusual or ‘rare’; there are in fact 39 lunar eclipses in the twentieth century that coincide with Passover or Sukkot which is approximately one-sixth (39/230) of the twentieth-century lunar eclipses.

In sum the most glaring omission of Hagee and Blitz and now with profits Ariel and Darg is that the blood moons of the Jewish Scriptures, in the context of the approaching day of the Lord are accompanied by earthquakes, the sun, moon and stars becoming dark. That nothing like this has happened so far means that the blood moons (lunar eclipses) we presently experience are part and parcel of the predictable and observable pattern of the effects of natural movements of the sun, moon and the earth. Given that the eclipses of April 14-15, 2014 and October 7-8, 2014 have already passed without incident and that the solar eclipse does not match up with the current parsha of Vayikra, what else needs to be said?
