Two Olive Trees

Welcome to Etz B'ney Yosef!

Etz B'ney Yosef can be translated as the stick (or tree) of Joseph. Ezekiel 37:19 reads:

Say to them, ‘Thus 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 put them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.”’

We believe that in these End Times, God is fulfilling this prophecy. Similar prophecies appear many times in both the Tanach and the Brit Hadashah.

Consider the Following . . .

“For when Elohim made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, ‘Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you’" (Hebrews 6:13-14). The Elohim of Abraham made a covenant promise to our forefather. It is backed by a very judicial signature, His own Name. The first part of this covenant promise is found in Genesis 12:2-3: “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." When Abram was 99, Almighty Elohim identified Himself again, “I am” and said: “I will multiply you exceedingly” (Genesis 17:2). One life, in one sperm, in one dead womb, of one mother - Sarah - to whom the same Elohim promised: "And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her" (Genesis 17:16).

Anyone who believes in this Elohim of Abraham and Sarah, must in this generation bear witness to the reality of His word and His faithfulness to keep covenant. Replacement theology has made a mockery of Elohim and His Word (Yeshua). The Almighty Elohim has accomplished what He said He would do. The seed/life that was birthed was never meant to be marked by religion, of one kind or another (Judaism, Christianity, or some hybrid of those two). YHVH promised a “nation,” a people living under the government of Elohim. If there is to be a so called religion, it can only be a personal relationship with the Elohim of the fathers, a relationship that issues from a circumcised heart that is obedient to the Word of Elohim.

YHVH’s covenant with Abram was sealed by a sacrifice of animals that were divided into two halves. This was the first evidence of what would happen to the one nation that was promised. Jacob, who epitomized the chosen nation, divided his household into two camps, two peoples, and two nations. This was done because judicially YHVH requires two witnesses who are to bear witness to the One who walked between the sacrifices and swore by His own name - the “I am.” In the past 150 years YHVH has moved and maneuvered nations in order to bring the first stick (Judah) back to the land and establish them again as a nation among the nations. He is now doing the same thing to the lost tribes of Israel. He is saving them, gathering them into families, and the families into communities, and to these communities He is granting or restoring their specific national identity as the Nation/stick of Joseph in the hand of Ephraim.

We cannot take lightly these covenant statements that the Almighty Elohim made with our forefather Abraham and wife Sarah. YHVH will have two nations living side by side in the land that is promised to each of them, and ultimately they will be joined together as one Holy Nation with King Messiah son of David ruling over them to be a blessings to the rest of the nations, fulfilling what He promised: “and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (Genesis 12:3).

If you are one of those from the lost sheep of the House of Israel who knows Yeshua as your redeemer and have the above understanding, then we invite you to participate in the B’ney (sons of) Yosef National Congress which is to take place in Ariel, on the mountains of Ephaim, in May 25 to 27th, 2015.

Hannah's Song: A Gift from Abba

A few years ago, Ephraim & Rimona Frank's daughter, Hadar, received a song from Abba. Later, Devorah Kueng (who attended the First Eprhaimite Congress) recorded it. It is in Hebrew, based on 1 Samuel 2:1-2, 6-7, Hannah's Song. Here is the English translation of the lyrics:

My heart rejoices in יהוה;
My horn is exalted in יהוה.
I smile at my enemies,
  because I rejoice in
  Your salvation.
No one is holy like יהוה,
  for there is none besides
  You, nor is there any
  rock like our Elohim.
יהוה kills and makes
  alive; He brings down to
  the grave and brings up.
יהוה makes poor and
  makes rich; He brings
  low and lifts up.
Listen to "Hannah's Song"
