Who we are . . . .
The "About Us" of this site, is not about Sammy, Deborah, Rachel, or David, Congregation such, or Ministry so. The "us" in this case refers to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who in this day and age have been stirred by the Spirit of Holiness as to our origins, as well as to our destiny. Additionally, having been redeemed and reconciled to our Heavenly Father, through Messiah Yeshua's atoning sacrifice, we now have the Torah written on the tablets of our hearts, as was promised in Jeremiah 31:31-33 and therefore desire to be obedient to its instructions.
As the reawakening House of Joseph (all lost tribes), we are also recognizing that we are at present in the midst of Elohim’s fulfillment of His ancient promise to our forefathers. (He has already started this fulfillment with our brothers from the House of Judah in a way that is unique to His promises to them.) Some of us are sensing that YHVH is calling us to explore together the practical steps, even if initially small, that are needed in order to follow Him on our path of restoration and eventual return to the Promised Land.
Thus the thrust of this site is our national identity as the "stick of Joseph in the hand of Ephraim and all Israel his companions" (Ezekiel 37:19). Those who wish to contribute ideas and opinions are welcome to do so. The success of such an endeavor will depend on the maturity of the contributors, and on the listening skills of all of us. Being of Israel, we all say the "Sh’mah," which appeals to our listening abilities. We must, therefore, learn to listen to others' opinions and ideas, and not take offense if what we express isn't necessarily accepted. If we do take offense, it immediately sets in motion a spirit of criticism, strife, and contention. Scripture says about those who so engage: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual but as to carnal, as to babes in Messiah... for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?" (1 Corinthians 3:1, 3).
This effort is about "us" being joined to our King and to our ancestors; it is about our union with our history and destiny as we stride toward the restoration of our nationhood and return to our inheritance. Our ancestors came into the land as "one man." We are to come back as "one new man," in Messiah.
