The House of Yahweh


THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH ESTABLISHED, A LAW OF YAHWEH

With all glory to Yahweh and to our King, Yahshua Messiah, and with the understanding of Yahweh’s Spirit, which is Holy, we dedicate this study to Yahweh and to the advancement of learning for the Saints of Yahweh to help grow into the Holy House of Yahweh. “To the law and the testimony, if they speak not according to this word it is because there is no light in them.”

The Law of Yahweh, is a guide for mankind that brings judgment to those who follow it’s laws, statutes, commandments, ordinances and judgments. Yahweh gave us this Covenant of Peace, which when followed, brings true peace to individuals, communities, states, and nations. The Plan of Yahweh is revealed to those whom Yahweh calls out of this world. When you are called out, you begin to understand this plan. Every serious minded student and teacher of the Holy Scriptures believes what is written, to be the Holy and Inspired Word of Yahweh, which is written for our learning. It is written to guide us into the Kingdom of Yahweh. This book is not written for the unbeliever, or one not called out by Yahweh. Therefore if you are called out, then you understand that everything written in this book is for you! The laws and prophecies point to certain time periods of mankind and reveal to us certain marks and signs that we can know to be true. We find the letters of the Apostles, reveal to us some of the prophecies, which also reveal to us the evidence of the prophetic times we are now living in. The Law of Yahweh brings us to Yahshua Messiah, who provides us with spiritual growth, in order for us to understand the pattern of Yahweh’s Kingdom and the way to salvation. We will examine the Law of Yahweh that reveals the establishment of a House, a family of Yahweh, that is for our benefit and growth. Yahweh shows us the order of His House, the name of His House, and how we can recognize the true House, which furthers our growth into a righteous Priestly family. We can come into unity with Yahweh, becoming a united body of believers, called the House of Yahweh, the living body of Messiah, if we follow with all our hearts, souls, and might the inspired word of Yahweh. Examine every word in this study and let the scriptures interpret the scriptures. Pay attention to the facts concerning the prophecies of the House of Yahweh, and open your hearts and minds to the understanding of Yahweh’s plan for the called out ones of Yahweh. At this time we are shown that there will be a remnant of the House of Yahweh, that will be saved. Not the corporation called House of Yahweh, nor the entire congregation that has been called to Abilene, Texas, but a remnant from that calling. This study will cover as much history as can be found at this time and will reveal to you the corporate 501c3 House of Yahweh, as well as the true House of Yahweh, which is a body of believers!

YAHWEH’ S PLACE, THAT HE CHOOSES!

Deuteronomy 12:5 “But unto the place 4725 which the LORD 3068 your God 430 shall choose 977 out of all your tribes 7626 to put 7760 his name 8034 there, [even] unto his habitation 7933 shall ye seek 1875  and thither thou shalt come 935

The words defined throughout this study will be taken from Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionary, Gesenius Hebrew Chaldee Lexicon and Thayer’s Greek Lexicon.  

The words used in Deuteronomy 12:5 are defined below:

The word place is #4725 and means: a place; place of anyone is his abode or habitation; from #6965 which means: to arise; to stand, fast; to make valid, confirm; to be established, be confirmed; to maintain oneself.
The word Lord is #3068 and means: Yahweh
The word God is #430 and means: mighty, true, judge
The word choose is #977 and means: to choose, elect, decide, to prove, examine, to approve, to select; to be chosen.
The word tribes is #7626 and means: rod, staff, stick so called because of supporting, beating, or correcting; branch, tribe; family; a measuring rod; sceptre;
The word put is #7760 and means: to put, set, or place; to constitute; to place his name; to found; to set, ordain, establish, found, appoint, constitute, make, determine, fix.
The word name is #8034 and means: name, reputation, fame, glory; the Name (as designation of Yahweh); memorial, monument; in the name of Yahweh, by his authority.
The word habitation is #7933 and means: a dwelling; from word #7931 which means: to settle down, abide, dwell, tabernacle, reside; to make settle down, establish; to make or cause to dwell, to lay, place, set, establish, settle, fix; to cause to dwell or abide
The word seek is #1875 and means: to resort to, seek, seek with care, enquire, require; to resort to, frequent (a place), (tread a place); to consult, enquire of, seek; of Yahweh.
The word come is #935 and means: to go to a place; to allow oneself to be enquired of, consulted (only of Yahweh).

So we see the following from the definitions above: “But unto the place, one’s abode and habitation, that is confirmed, established, stand fast and maintain oneself, which Yahweh, your true and mighty Judge shall choose, elect, and approve, out of all your supported, correcting, tribe and family, which is a measuring rod, to put, set or place His name, which is your memorial and your authority, there even unto his dwelling, tabernacle, he caused to dwell or abide, shall you seek with care, enquire, frequent this place to enquire of, seek Yahweh and there shall you allow oneself to be enquired of and consulted of Yahweh.”

Deuteronomy 16:16 “Three time in a year shall all your males appear before Yahweh, the mighty one in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear empty handed.”

We can see from the above scriptures that Yahweh will establish a place for worship, His dwelling, and we must seek it with care, to inquire of Yahweh. There was a place for Yahweh to be worshipped and sought after. A place where the people of Yahweh inquired to learn of Yahweh and His ways. It is important enough that Yahweh made it a Law within His Laws, so that we as a body of believers would seek Yahweh. But we will see in this study, it was not a building or temple built with human hands, that Yahweh wanted for worship, this was man’s idea. Yahweh is the father of the living, not the dead. After the destruction of what is called the Temple of Yahweh, and the establishment of the true House of Yahweh, called Yahshua Messiah, there was never a need for a physical building to inquire of Yahweh.

Acts 17:24 “Yahweh, Who made the world and all things in it, being Creator of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

II Samuyl 7:7 “Wherever I have walked with all the children of Israyl, have I ever said to any of their rulers, whom I commanded to shepherd My people Israyl; Why have you not built me a house made of cedar?”

Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I appeal to you, brothers, by the mercies of Yahweh, that you present your bodies as living sacrifices, holy, acceptable to Yahweh which is your reasonable service.”

There are many groups, who say their place or building, is where you must worship Yahweh. But as we have seen above, Yahweh does not need any buildings made with hands in order to be worshiped. There was a time when Yahweh did place his name in a certain city or place, such as Shiloh and Jerusalem. They were rejected because of sin and godworship! The same goes with us, if we sin, or follow gods, we are cut off from Yahweh, and Yahweh’s Name is not within us. The question that is asked many times, by many people, is where does one go to worship Yahweh in these extreme last days? Where has he placed his name in these last days? Is it one place? Does Yahweh have one building or organization, where we are to go to worship him? As you read this study, hopefully you will understand the answers to these questions by understanding Yahweh’s plan of salvation.

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES IS OUR GUIDE

The Holy Scriptures, no doubt the biggest selling book in the world, that is read by millions and known by billions, is considered by those who believe in it, as the inspired words of Yahweh. Throughout the centuries many have been led by it’s inspiration, wars have been fought over it’s meanings, and now in these last days we have a book that was written to us, for us, and for our learning, to understand the way of Yahweh and yet, we still have wars among people and religious organizations. The book of Yahweh, Holy Bible, Holy Scriptures or whatever title you want to call it, is a book that shows us, the people of Yahweh, who we are, what we are to do, and why we are here. In today’s society we find many religions and religious organizations that claim to be the prophesied work of Yahweh. They claim that their religion is the true faith. There is literally thousands of religions who hold claim to their faith as being the one that grants a person entrance to the Kingdom of Yahweh. They say that you must be a part of their faith or religious group, to understand salvation, and to receive eternal life. There is no doubt that not all of them can be right, as each has their own doctrine or creed. So is there only one way into the Kingdom of Yahweh, and if so, how does one gain entrance? Is it through an established, religious institution, that one receives salvation? Is there personal relationships with the creator? So what is it, that brings wisdom in order to answer such questions? What is it, that gives us insight into our creator and the plan He has for His creation?

II Timayah (Timothy) 3:15 “And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Yahshua Messiah.

We see that the Holy Scriptures makes you wise, through faith, which is only through Yahshua Messiah! We must believe and do what the scriptures say and only through Yahshua can we understand what we read, in order to obtain salvation. The scriptures gives us wisdom. Yahweh gives us understanding. Yahshua Messiah is our salvation!

Wisdom is defined as: Skill; the primary power of this word is judging. The ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight.

So when one lives by and practices the words that are written in the Holy Scriptures they are given skills to judge. They should receive the ability to discern between what is true right and lasting. Reading from the writings of King Solomon, who is mentioned as one who had wisdom, we find the following:

Proverbs 1:1-7 “The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, King of Israyl; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtility to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The reverence of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

The Holy Scriptures give us understanding, knowledge, discretion, increase learning, and attain wise counsel. However, we also need to understand it’s interpretation. In order to understand it’s interpretation, we must reverence Yahweh and most importantly not despise judgment and instruction. Wisdom brings judgment, which leads one to Yahshua Messiah, who brings salvation. Remember this, when reading this law of Yahweh. Also remember that fools despise, judgment and the ability to discern what is true and right.

I Kepha 4:17,18  “For the time has come (and now is), that judgment must begin at the House of Yahweh: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the message of Yahweh? And if the righteous scarcely are saved, where shall the wicked and the sinner appear?”

Judgment begins with us, the living House of Yahweh, as we allow the laws of Yahweh to bring judgment. The Laws of Yahweh bring forth blessings and curses, depending on your choice of life. We are judged through our actions by our decisions. Judgment begins with the family of Yahweh, those whom he has called out. At this time the world is not being judged, because they are not called out by Yahweh.

PROPHECY OF THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH BEING ESTABLISHED IN THE LAST DAYS

Yahweh inspired the True Prophets of Isayah and Micahyah to write of a House of Yahweh, that would be established in these last days. We are shown that all nations would eventually recognize and flow unto it. This House or family, would be called a House of Yahweh, just as it was called throughout the pages of the Holy Scriptures. Reading from Isayah we find the following information.

Isayah 2:2 “And it shall come to pass in the last 319 days 3117, [that] the mountain 2022 of the LORD'S 3068 house 1004 shall be established 3559 in the top 7218 of the mountains 2022, and shall be exalted 5375 above the hills 1389; and all nations 1471 shall flow 5102 unto it.”

The word last is word #319 and means: after part, end; latter part, extreme part; end, issue, event; latter time (prophetic for future time); posterity; last, hindermost
The word days is word #3117 and means: day, time, year.
The word mountain is word #2022 and means: hill, mountain, hill country, mount; the holy mountain of Yahweh; a mountain tract of country.
The word Lord’s is word #3068 and means: Yahweh
The word house is word #1004 and means: house, dwelling habitation; house as containing a family; household, family; those belonging to the same household; family of descendants, descendants as organized body. From #1129 and means: rebuild, establish, to build a house (ie. establish a family).
The word established is word #3559 and means: to be set up, be established, be fixed; to be firmly established; to constitute, appoint; to be prepared, to be founded.
The word top is word #7218 and means: head, top, summit, upper part, chief, total, sum, height, front, beginning; chief, head (of man, city, nation, place, family, priest); chief, choicest, best.
The word exalted is word #5375 and means: to lift, bear up, carry, take; to be taken away, be carried off, be swept away;
The word hills is word #1389 and means: hill (lower than a mountain); as a place of illicit worship.
The word nations is word #1471 and means: nation, a people; usually of non-Hebrew people; of descendants of Abraham; a confluence of men, body corpus.
The word flow is word #5102 and means: to shine, beam, light, burn; to shine; to give light, to be glad, rejoice.

In Micahyah 4:1 the word people is used in place of nations, as mentioned in Isayah 2:2. This word people is word #5971 and means: people; members of ones people; countrymen, kindred, relatives; the tribes of Israyl.

So we see that this scripture has the meaning of:

Isayah 2:2 “It will come to pass in the latter and extreme part of the last time and days, that the holy mountain of Yahweh, Yahweh’s House, which contains his rebuilt family, descendants as an organized body, shall be set up,  established, and founded in the beginning, chief, head, top of nation, family of the tribes, Israyl. The High Priest, the head of man, the best of the House of Yahweh, shall be taken away from Israyl, lifted and swept away to a place of illicit worship, (in these extreme last days, called the United States of America), and all people, relatives and countrymen, the tribes of Israyl, those who are descendants of Abraham, as well as non-Hebrew people, who were a dead body, shall shine, give light, be glad, rejoice and flow unto the House of Yahweh.

The House of Yahweh is the name of the family who worship Yahweh. The House of Yahweh will bring all people together, from all nations, the 12 tribes, both Hebrew and non-Hebrew to worship and rejoice before Yahweh. They will be established in Israel, and taken to a land of illicit worship, which fits the United States of America, in these extreme last days.

Illicit is defined as: not sanctioned by custom or law. Most places of worship today in America are not sanctioned by Yahweh because they are not founded on the Law and Prophets and are illicit places of worship as defined by Isayah 2:2, they are not sanctioned by Yahweh. Also the way the Laws are set up in America, the Constitution prohibits the federal government from sanctioning any State religion. We will see that they have been able to go around this law through, codes and regulations, that allow sanction, through treaty, called a 501c3 corporation. This prophecy shows that Yahweh’s family of Priests, who are after the order of Melchizedek, are taken and called from Israyl and taken to this place of illicit worship. The first one ordained into this Order of Melchizedek is Yahshua Messiah. He is the first House of Yahweh established, the first House of Yahweh built without hands. We will see more in this study of this topic.
It is, Yahweh, who is restoring His family of Priests, who have been scattered to the four winds of the earth at this time. Yahweh’s House is a family, of His people, called Priestly Kings of Yahweh, who are not built with hands, but who are a people, Holy unto Him. According to Isayah and Micahyah’s prophecy, this established House of Yahweh was to be founded in the beginning, chief, or head of the Priestly tribes, Israel, in the last days as prophecy shows and taken to this place of illicit worship. Yahshua Messiah started His work in Yahdah and Yerusalem as the prophecy shows.

Isayah 2:1 “The word that Isayah, the son of Amoz saw concerning Yahdah and Yerusalem.”

Yaaqob (James) 1:1 “Yaaqob, a servant of Yahweh and of the King, Yahshua Messiah, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad; Greetings.”

Yahchanan (John) 11:52 “And not for that nation only, but also that He would gather together in one the children of Yahweh who were dispersed.

Isayah 11:12 “And He shall set up an ensign for the nations (12 tribes of Israel), and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Yahdah from the four corners of the earth.

For thousands of years the 12 tribes of Israyl and Yahdah, the children of Abraham, Yaaqob, and Isaac, have been dispersed throughout the earth. Each going to different parts of the earth, establishing themselves as colonies, states, governments called Nations. In the last days, Yahweh shows through prophecy, that he would rebuild this family, starting with His Son, Yahshua Messiah, gathering the 12 tribes together from the Head, Chief Nation of the family of Priests, in Israyl, where this House was first established and then take it to a place of Illicit worship, not sanctioned by custom or law. The United States of America has separation of what they call church and state, and therefore there is a strong indication of it being the Nation that is mentioned here in Isayah’s and Micahyah’s prophecies towards the extreme end of the last days. What other nation could fit this prophecy? There is no official, sanctioned, state religion here in America. However, in Israyl, the national religion is sanctioned through the Torah and the Prophets and does not promote any other sanctioned worship. For the most part Israel’s State Religion is Judaism, or the teaching of the Law and the Prophets. This prophecy shows these two nations, would be together, in the time period called the extreme last days, to allow the establishment of the House of Yahweh. Let’s get more understanding of these two nations and their religious order.

United States of America

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly forbids the federal government from enacting any law respecting a religious establishment, and thus forbids either designating an official church for the United States, or interfering with State and local official churches — which were common when the First Amendment was enacted. The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads as follows:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


ISRAEL

Religion in Israel is a central feature of the country and plays a major role in shaping Israeli culture and lifestyle, and Israyl is the only country in the world where a majority of citizens are Jewish. Israel was founded to provide a national home, safe from persecution, to the Jewish people. Although Israeli law explicitly grants equal civil rights to all citizens regardless of religion, ethnicity, or other heritage, it gives preferential treatment in certain aspects to individuals who fall within the criteria mandated by the Law of Return. Preferential treatment is given to Jews and their relatives who seek to immigrate to Israel. This serves to increase the Jewish population and provides asylum to people who face religious discrimination in the countries they emigrate from.
The Law of Return does not strictly follow the traditional Jewish religious law (halakha) in relation to the definition of who is a Jew. For example, some individuals who would be considered Jewish under the halakha are excluded from the rights under the Law of Return - e.g. those who converted to another religion; while others are entitled to immigration though they are obviously non-Jewish - e.g. they are related by marriage to a Jew or a grandparent may have been a Jew.
Most citizens in the State of Israel are Jewish, and most Israeli Jews practice Judaism in some form. In the last two centuries the largest Jewish community in the world, in the United States, has divided into a number of Jewish denominations. The largest and most influential of these denominations are Orthodox Judaism, Reform Judaism, and Conservative Judaism. All of the above denominations exist, to varying degrees, in the State of Israel. Nevertheless, Israelis tend to classify Jewish identity in ways that are strikingly different from American Jewry.

CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM

Dishonoring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews. In the past, when the danger of anti-Semitic hostility was a real one, the pious Jews were commanded by their rabbis either to spit so that the reason for doing so would be unknown, or to spit onto their chests, not actually on the cross or openly before the church. The increasing strength of the Jewish state has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: The spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, organized in Kibbutz Sa’ad and financed by the Israeli government is an act of traditional Jewish piety. It does not cease to be barbaric, horrifying and wicked because of this! On the contrary, it is worse because it is so traditional, and much more dangerous as well, just as the renewed anti-Semitism of the Nazis was dangerous, because in part, it played on the traditional anti-Semitic past. However, in recent years, anti-Christian feelings are literally exploding in Israel (and among the Israel-worshipping Jews in Diaspora too) together with the increase of the Jewish fanaticism in all other areas.

Yahweh established the Name of His family, where it all began, a nation called Israel and took it to a place of illicit worship. Why? Because the United States of America, offers freedom of religion, with tolerance to all people of religious faiths. This is the only place where the 12 tribes could be gathered together, with freedom to study, learn, and practice the Laws of Yahweh and belief in Yahshua Messiah, without interference or persecution.  In Israel, a House of Yahweh that believes in Yahshua Messiah as the Savior, would be looked down upon as Christian, and would be persecuted. So Yahweh took His House from the East (Israel) and brought it to the West (U.S.A.) in order that all congregations of the 12 tribes would be able to be gathered, without interference from one major, religious sect. There will be a time when a House of Yahweh, the body of believers, will return to Israyl, but not yet at this time.

Revelation 7:2And I saw another malak ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Father; and he cried with a loud voice to the four malakim, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. And I heard the number of those who were sealed: and there was sealed a 144,000 of all the tribes of the children of Israyl

II Timayah (Timothy) 2:19 “Nevertheless, the foundation of Yahweh stands sure, having this seal: Yahweh know those who are His; and Let every one that names the name of Messiah depart from iniquity.”

The word names is nameth in the KJV word #3687 and means: to name, to utter, to make mention of the name; to bear the name of a person or thing; to utter the name of a person or thing.
The word name is #3686 and means: the name is used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing, remembering, the name, i.e. for one's rank, authority, interests, pleasure, command, excellences, deeds etc. The cause or reason named: on this account, because he suffers as a Christian, for this reason.

The word Messiah is Christ in the KJV #5547 and means: anointed, a mind conformed to Yahshua;

We see in Timayah, that Yahweh knows who are is, and those who depart from iniquity are named into the family, they bear Yahweh’s name, for the rank, order of the anointed ones, the order of Melchizedek, who have the mind of Yahshua Messiah. We can see that they bear the name of Yahweh’s family name. They also will suffer persecution because they have a mind conformed to Yahshua, which is the teachings of the Law and the Prophets.

Psalm 75:2,6,7When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. For promotion does not come from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But Yahweh is the Judge: He brings one down and exalts another.”

Isayah 59:19 “So they will reverence the Name of Yahweh from the west...”

The Name of Yahweh cannot be used in Israel without persecution from the Orthodox Religious community. And Yahweh’s Son, Yahshua Messiah is not accepted by the nation as the Messiah. We will see further in this study that Yahweh revealed this great Family Name, House of Yahweh, to an American/Hebrew named, Jacob Hawkins, who took it from the East (Israel) to a nation west, (U.S.A) where religious freedom was allowed, in order to establish a religious order or family, without any persecution or hinderance, for the gathering of the tribes or nations of the Priestly family, who would be called, House of Yahweh.

Now most people who study the scriptures, know that we are in a time period called the last days. These last days started after the death of Yahshua Messiah, who established the true House of Yahweh, built without hands, and has been leading up to the extreme part of these last days which we are now living in!

Acts 2:16,17 “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Yahyl; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith Yahweh, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”

We can know we are in the extreme last days by witnessing the prophecy of Isayah and Micahyah being fulfilled before our eyes. This Law of Yahweh will reveal these facts to you, concerning these prophecies. Since the death of the disciples and the dispersion of the believers, there has not been a recorded body of believers called a House of Yahweh. Since the founding of the nation of Israyl in 1948, there has been an awakening of the Hebrew people, a calling back of the people back to the land. When Israyl was re-established, the country of Israyl, started rebuilding the nation and the waste places of Yahweh that had laid dormant for thousands of years. Without this re-establishment of this nation, we might have never known that we are in the extreme last days. The House of Yahweh might not have been discovered in Israyl. This is a key to understanding the time period we are in now. In order to understand the present and future, we need to know the past.

TEL ARAD, LOCATION OF THE ONLY EXCAVATED HOUSE OF YAHWEH IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL

Consider that when the Arabs occupied the land of Israyl, the archaeological sites were left basically intact, covered in earth, for thousands of years. Throughout the land, the waste places lay dormant. In the 1960’s Yahweh inspired an archaeologist named Yohanan Aharoni (b1919- d.1976) to make a remarkable discovery in the land of Israyl. This man went to the region of Yahdah, at the southern end of the Dead Sea in 1962, to start excavation at the site of a tel (mount) located near the modern city of Arad. Here is a little history into this great find in our modern times for the believers!

Tel Arad (Hebrew: תל ערד‎) or 'old' Arad is located west of the Dead Sea, about 10 km west of modern Arad in an area surrounded by mountain ridges which is known as the Arad Plain. The site is divided into a lower city and an upper hill which holds the only ever discovered 'House of Yahweh' in the land of Israel. Tel Arad was excavated during 18 seasons by Ruth Amiran and Yohanan Aharoni. The Lower City And Upper Hill -- The lower area was first settled during the Chalcolithic period, around 4000 BCE. Excavations at the site have unearthed an extensive Bronze Age Canaanite settlement which was in place until approximately 2650 BCE. The site was then apparently deserted for over 1500 years until resettled during the Israelite period from the 11th century BCE onwards, initially as an unwalled piece of land cut off as an official or sacred domain was established on the upper hill, and then later as a garrison-town known as 'The Citadel'. The citadel and sanctuary were constructed at the time of King David and Solomon. Artifacts found within the sanctuary of the citadel mostly reflect offerings of oil, wine, wheat, etc. brought there by numerous people throughout the reign of the kings of Judah until the kingdom's fall to the Babylonians. However, during the Persian, Maccabean, Roman, and early Muslim eras, locals continued to transport these items to the sacred precinct of the upper hill. Markers of these ancient Israelite rituals remain to this day, with broken pottery littering the entire site. Under the Judaean kings the citadel was periodically refortified, remodeled and rebuilt, until ultimately it was destroyed between 597 BCE and 577 BCE whilst Jerusalem was under siege by Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II. Among the most significant artifacts unearthed from this time are ostraca dating from the mid-7th century BCE, referring to this citadel as the House of Yahweh. Habitation of Tel Arad and the upper citadel did not end with the Babylonian siege. During the Persian period (5th - 4th centuries BCE) almost a hundred ostracon and pottery were written in Aramaic, mostly accounts of locals who brought oil, wine, wheat, etc. to the upper hill. Thus, several citadels were built one upon the other and existed in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Herod even reconstructed the lower city for the purpose of making bread. The site lasted til the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and completely expelled the 'circumcised' in 135 AD. Tel Arad laid in ruins for 500 years until the Islamic period when the former Roman citadel was rebuilt and remodeled by some prosperous clan in the area and functioned for 200 years until around 861 AD when there was a breakdown of central authority and a period of widespread rebellion and unrest. The citadel was destroyed and no more structures were built on the site.

Now this House of Yahweh was revealed to Yahweh’s people for a purpose, so we could know the name of the family of Yahweh and what we were called. Now this family name had to be established in order to fulfill the prophecy of Isayah and Micahyah. Just being discovered, didn’t establish it as a work of the Priesthood of Yahweh. It needed a Priest or minister of Yahweh to understand it’s importance and establish it as a work, a family of the Priesthood, which would be called the House of Yahweh, by which all, whom Yahweh called, would be named.

YOHANAN AHARONI, YEHUDAH GOVERIN, AND HOWSHUA AMARIEL, THE ARCHAEOLOGIST WHO PLAY A PART IN THE PROPHECY CONCERNING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH IN THESE EXTREME LAST DAYS

Consider an interesting point of topic, concerning the names of the archaeologist Yohanan Ahroni, and Ruth Amiran, who discovered the only ever excavated House of Yahweh in the land of Israyl, and what his name means: Yohanan--whom Yahweh bestowed, a returning exile.  Aharoni--light bringer, priest of Yahweh, the house of Aaron or light bringer.  Ruth Amiran means: Ruth--means: friendship, desire study of anything, friend of Yahweh. Root word means: to pasture, to shepherd, of ruler or teacher. Amiran-- means: prince, treetop, my nation is joyful, my nation is a song. The founding of the name, House of Yahweh is something that all the tribes of Israyl should be singing about. King David wrote about this saying: Sing forth the honour of His Name, make His praise glorious! The prophet Zecharyah said: Sing and rejoice O daughter of Zion, for lo I come and I will dwell in the midst of you, saith Yahweh. The discovery of the name House of Yahweh should be a joyous occasion for the tribes of Israyl. We should be singing above the top of the treetops about this Name.

After Yohanan Aharoni’s death, the archeologist who carried on his work was Yehudah Goverin, whose name means: Yehudah--praised, praise the name of Yahweh. Goverin--to labor, to work about anything, to produce by labour, to sacrifice to Yahweh; to make or prepare a victim to offer to Yahweh. These two men whose name origins traces back to the Priestly family of Yahweh, discovered, and have carried on the work of rebuilding the ancient House of Yahweh in the land just outside of the modern city of Arad, Israel. Another man, whom the author personally met, has devoted his life to finding the Tabernacle of David, or the House of Yahweh. Howshua Ameriel, an archaeologist, scholar, and rabbi whom lives down in the Negev, has spent the last 10 years researching the House of Yahweh in Tel Arad, Israel. He is the only person in history to make a formal equivalence (word-per-word) translation the Torah (bible) from Paleo Hebraic into English. His name means: Howshua--salvation; family name of Yahshua ben Nun. Amariel--Yahweh has promised. These men’s names and their meanings gives us another clue as to whom Yahweh would bestow the honor of revealing his House to this world in these last days. These men’s name can trace their lineage back to the Priestly family, by the origins of their names. Time doesn’t permit us to go into a geneological background on these men, but I think you the reader should find this of importance considering the great work that Yahweh has blessed them with uncovering and revealing to the believers of Yahweh in these extreme last days.

A HOUSE OF YAHWEH ESTABLISHED IN THESE EXTREME LAST DAYS, THE START OF THE FAMILY NAME, HOUSE OF YAHWEH


JACOB HAWKINS, THE FOUNDER OF THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH, A RELIGIOUS ORDER,  ESTABLISHED ACCORDING TO THE PROPHETS ISAYAH AND MICAHYAH

When The House of Yahweh was discovered in 1962, Yohanan Aharoni did not understand the prophetic importance of his discovery. It wasn’t until June 29, 1973, when Jacob Hawkins came upon an article in the Jerusalem Post, which described the findings of Mr. Aharoni, that the prophecy of Isayah 2:2 was fulfilled. Jacob was living in Nazareth, Israyl at the time, had moved to Israel in 1969, with his family and a small group of believers, to settle and start of work of Yahweh in the Holy Land. He was an ordained Minister and Messianic Rabbi, who had spent his time living in a Kibbutz and preparing his family and this small group of believers to set up a ministry to do the work of Yahweh. In Jacob’s own words he describes how he established and founded the family name, House of Yahweh in these last days.

This excerpt is taken from the Prophetic Watchman Magazine, November 1983 issue:

At the time we went to Israyl we did not carry any title, though we did believe in the name of the creator and his son. We were looked upon as Messianic Jews. Later I began to publish the Prophetic Watchman. It was not until about 2 years later after starting the Prophetic Watchman, that we began to call ourselves the House of Yahweh. This came about in the Friday’s edition of the Jerusalem Post. It was Friday, June 29, 1973 and article entitled, “Unearthing the land” appeared in the Jerusalem Post. This article told about the many archaeological discoveries in Israel. But what caught my eye was this, “At Arad, excavated by Yohanan Aharoni, reference is made to a YHWH...” At this precise time Yahweh began to flash through my mind the many scriptures Yahweh which referred to His people as the The House of Yahweh. Yahweh brought to my mind how the prophets had foretold that the House of Yahweh was to be brought back to the Earth in the last days: “But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the House of Yahweh shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and people shall flow unto it.” Micahyah 4:1 At that time we were living in the new city of Nazareth, the Jewish section. So on Monday, July 2, 1973, I caught a bus down to the old city of Nazareth, and had a letterhead drawn up with these words. Inserted is a copy of the old letterhead.

The HOUSE OF YAHWEH

WORLD HEADQUARTERS            

P.O. BOX 1039

NAZARETH ILLIT ISRAEL


JACOB HAWKINS, WORLD OVERSEER                   PUBLISHERS OF THE PROPHETIC WATCHMAN


At the time the House of Yahweh was established on the high mountains of Israel as was foretold by the prophets, Read Eze. 17/22-24, The word established comes from the word “KUN” and means: “be fashioned”, “be prepared”, “be set in order”, “confirmed”, “make ready”, “ordain”, “set aright”, etc. That very day, Monday July 2, 1973, the House of Yahweh was fashioned, prepared, set in order, confirmed, and ordained back on this earth. That very day the remnant of the 144,000 began to be sealed. The gleaning work had started just where the Apostles of Yeshua had left off. It started in the very city where Yeshua started his ministry, where he grew up. Yes, where he lived with his mother, step father, brothers and sisters, where he played as a boy and preached as a man. The following year 1974 THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH was listed in 1974 Copyright edition of the “DIRECTORY OF SABBATH OBSERVING GROUPS” ON PAGES 143, PAGES 144, and 145 as THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH, WORLD HEADQUARTERS, NAZARETH ILLIT, ISRAEL, JACOB HAWKINS -OVERSEER. It is listed there along with the doctrines and beliefs and it’s goal of publishing and preaching the Evangel among all nations.

The angel who guides the House of Yahweh moved it west of Israyl in 1975 to Odessa, Texas to finish the sealing of the 144,000. The angel guided it to Odessa, Texas because the prophets foretold that it would be set up in a desert, a place called Odessa. Isayah 21:1 the word “burden” is from the Hebrew word, “Massa”, and means a SONG or SINGING, ODESSA IS GREEK FOR “SONG” OR “SINGING”. It was to be in a basin, a place once a sea, but had dried up into a desert. Isayah 21:1 See also Eze. 19/1,14, Hos. 2/14,17. Read Rev. 7/1,8. When this sealing of the gleanings of the 144,000 is finished, the House of Yahweh will return to Israel, from whence it came. When this sealing is finished the great tribulation will start.

In preparing to gather out the 144,000 firstfruits, Yeshua told the Apostles--”Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Matt.4/18. Yahweh foretold through the prophet--”Behold I will send for many fishers (Apostles) saith Yahweh, and they shall fish them; (the fishing work ended with the Apostles), AND AFTER WILL I SEND FOR MANY HUNTERS, (OUR DAY OF GLEANING), AND THEY SHALL HUNT THEM FROM EVERY MOUNTAIN, (RELIGIOUS SECTS), AND FROM EVERY HILL, AND OUT OF THE HOLES OF THE ROCKS.” JER. 16/16. The word “hunt” means almost the same as “glean”. It means “to search carefully after; to seek...” Today we are searching and seeking carefully for the remnant of the 144,000.
  
The article that Jacob Hawkins read in the Jerusalem Post on that July day in 1973, told of an inscription which had the writings “Bayith Yahweh” or House of Yahweh on some ostrica. This was the beginning of a House of Yahweh, that was to be established as a work, family, and name for Yahweh’s habitation, but most importantly this was Yahweh’s revealing to His servants what we are called. For over two thousand years this name had been hidden from the world, as a religious order, or a family name, without anyone having any indication of the importance of calling the faith or family of believers a “House of Yahweh”. The prophecy had to be fulfilled as written by the prophets Isayah and Micahyah, that this would not take place until the extreme last time, called the last days. Jacob Hawkins fulfilled this important prophecy, by re-establishing the family Name of Yahweh, called, House of Yahweh as a religious order promoting the Law and the Prophets.

Isayah 8:20To the Law and to the Testimony; if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

The word testimony is #8584 and means: testimony, attestation, confirmation; testimony, (prophetic) injunction.

Jacob Hawkins attested or affirmed the House of Yahweh to be the name of Yahweh’s family and fulfilled the prophetic injunction of Isayah and Micahyah. This act of founding a House of Yahweh could have been done by anyone, but the fact of the matter is that it was performed, confirmed, and established by Jacob Hawkins.

When Jacob Hawkins returned to the United States of America, he established a religious order, a body of believers, called by the family name, House of Yahweh, and located it in Odessa, Texas. He continued to preach and publish the message of the Kingdom of Yahweh until his death on March 22, 1991.


Notice under his name, Jacob Hawkins, the Hebrew script which is translated:

Yaaqob son of Abraham.

Are you a son of Abraham, or a slave to a man?

Galatians 4:31 “So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

Here is the symbolism on the plaque that is on the grave of Jacob Hawkins. Let’s examine it:
  • The crown is symbolic of royalty, a man of rank; defender of a fortress. One who breached the walls first.
  • Two bells below the phoenix and on top of crown: Power to disperse evil spirits; a hawk's bells denotes one who was not afraid of signalling his approach in peace or war.
  • Phoenix: Symbol of resurrection.
  • The two lions: It traditionally symbolises bravery, valour, strength, and royalty, since traditionally, it is regarded as the king of beasts. Lion is representative of the tribe of Yahdah.
  • Menorah: means, light bringer. All the candles are lit on the menorah.
  • Star inside Menorah: Celestial goodness; noble person; Excellence.
  • Pelican inside Star: Self-sacrifice and charitable nature; When              feeding her young ("in her piety"), symbolizes the duties of a parent or              parental love.
  • The capstone reads: Into righteous waters of rest.
  • Beloved husband and overseer: dear to the heart and One who keeps watch over and directs the work of others, especially laborers.


II Samuyl 22:2 “And he said, Yahweh is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer.”

Psalm 31:3 “For you are my rock, and my fortress; therefore for your Name's sake, lead me, and guide me.”

Isayah 28:5 “In that day shall Yahweh of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty unto the residue of his people.

Revelation 3:11 “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take thy crown.

Zecharyah 14:20In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS  UNTO YAHWEH; and the pots in the House of Yahweh, shall be like the bowls before the altar.”

Numbers 28:5-7, 9 “How beautiful are your tents; O Yaaqob, and your dwelling places; O Israel. Like valleys that spread out, like gardens by the riverside, like aloes planted by Yahweh, like cedars besides the waters. Water will flow from their buckets; their seed will have abundant water. Their King shall be higher than Agag, and His Kingdom shall be exalted. Like a lion they crouch and lie down. And as a lion, who will rouse him up? Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you.

Yeremyah 49:19 “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong: but I will suddenly make him run away from her: and who [is] a chosen  [man, that] I may appoint over her? for who [is] like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who [is] that shepherd that will stand before me?

Amosyah 3:8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? Yahweh our mighty judge, hath spoken, who can but prophesy.”

Micahyah 5:8And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.”

The word Gentiles is #1471 and means: nation, people; usually of non-Hebrew people; of descendants of Abraham, of Israel.

So the remnant of Yaaqob shall be among the scattered 12 tribes from Abraham, as a lion, they will fulfill the prophetic injunction that has been delivered to them by the prophecy.

Revelation 5:5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”

I tell you today, don’t weep, the Lion of the tribe of Yahdah, the lawgiver, Yahshua Messiah has prevailed, and through his death, his testament is now in effect and he has opened the book of the law and has taught us to live by the Law and the Prophets! He never told us to worship him. He taught to worship Yahweh and to look to Him for salvation!

Daniyl 11:7But out of a branch of her roots shall [one] stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail.”

After Jacob’s death, his son, David Hawkins, Odis Hawkins, and John Richey, continued to use the name House of Yahweh, but Incorporated the House of Yahweh as a non-profit corporation, a Jewish Synagogue, in the State of Texas, filed December 23,1991.


This was the beginning of the end for the House of Yahweh of Odessa, as a religious body, that had become a State corporation. These men, did contrary to what Jacob Hawkins taught in his lifetime, in compliance with Yahweh’s law, and that was they incorporated a House of Yahweh which recognized the State as Sovereign, instead of Yahweh. Eventually the members dispersed and the House of Yahweh of Odessa became defunct as a corporate religious organization in 2007. This should be a reminder of the saints of Yahweh, to not incorporate the House of Yahweh, which is against Yahweh’s Laws. By incorporating, you acknowledge men as Sovereign, not Yahweh. E-mail us for a copy of the Law--”Making Treaties with the Godworshiping Nations”, for an indepth study of this abominable practice or go online at www.bayithyahweh.org  for more information.

HOUSE OF YAHWEH, ESTABLISHED AND RECOGNIZED BY THE 12 SCATTERED TRIBES

The prophecy shows in Isayah 2:2,3 and Micahyah 4:1,2 that a House of Yahweh would be established in these extreme last days. What makes this prophecy important for the believers is that the fulfilling of this prophecy starts the beginning, of the extreme last days prophecies concerning, a House of Yahweh and the gathering of the 12 tribes, who will bring in the return of Yahshua Messiah. Once these prophecies are fulfilled/established, then it is only a matter of time before other last days prophecies will be fulfilled and we will usher in the return of Yahshua Messiah. Reading Isayah 2:2 with the Hebrew words defined, here is two interpretations using the Hebrew definitions.

Isayah 2:2 “It will come to pass in the latter and extreme part of the last time and days, that the holy mountain of Yahweh, Yahweh’s House, which contains his rebuilt family, shall be set up,  established, and founded in the beginning, chief, head, top of nation, family of the tribes, Israyl. The priest, Yahshua Messiah, the best of the House of Yahweh, shall be taken away from Israyl, lifted and swept away to a place of illicit worship, (in these last days, the United States of America), and all people, relatives and countrymen, the tribes of Israyl, those who are descendants of Abraham, as well as non-Hebrew people, who were a dead body, shall shine, give light, be glad, rejoice and flow unto the House of Yahweh.”

Isayah 2:2,3 "It will come to pass in the extreme last days, that the Kingdom of the House of Yahweh will be established in the beginning, chief, head, family of the Tribes, in Israyl, and will be exalted and taken and carried to another Nation, congregation, the United States of America, and all the Tribes, family, will gather to it. And many people will go and say; Come let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the House of Yahweh, of Yaaqob, and HE will teach us of Yahweh's Laws and we will walk in Yahweh's Paths. For out of Zion will go forth the Law and the word of Yahweh will depart from Jerusalem."

What you should notice in these prophecies is that all the Tribes, will recognize this last days family, called, “House of Yahweh.” To prove the facts of this prophecy and that these prophecies have been fulfilled, we will see that the scattered tribes, now called, Sabbath keeping--churches, assemblies, synagogues of Yahweh, have recognized the founding of the very first, House of Yahweh in our time period.

Reading from the Directory of Sabbath Observing Groups, published by the Bible Sabbath Association of Fairview, Oklahoma, 1974 edition we find the following information concerning the believers called, “The House of Yahweh”, and their recognition by the 12 scattered tribes, called, Sabbath Observing Groups in the world.





One thing that is important is that this House of Yahweh, was founded by Jacob Hawkins, who is called the world overseer. This House was founded by Jacob Hawkins and there was no other House of Yahweh. His brother Buffalo Bill Hawkins, was not involved, nor mentioned as a co-founder, and as we will read later in this article, is that Jacob Hawkins never identified himself as one of the two witnesses as mentioned in Revelation and Zecharyah, as his brother has taught for many years. He was a witness for the name, House of Yahweh, but did not consider himself, nor his brother as “THE TWO WITNESSES who are spoken of in Revelation 11.

HISTORY OF THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH IN ABILENE, TEXAS

The history of the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas is important to the believers, because it was founded under Jacob Hawkins as a body of believers, called House of Yahweh, with Buffalo Bill Hawkins ordained as it’s Elder. However, Buffalo Bill Hawkins incorporated the name, House of Yahweh, and by doing so, broke the Law of Yahweh, disqualifing themselves as a legitimate House of Yahweh, under Yahweh’s leadership. They became a ward of the State.

The following information was given to the editor by Kay Hawkins, ex-wife of Buffalo Bill Hawkins, now known as Yisrayl Hawkins:

In 1975, when Jacob Hawkins returned to Texas from his 7 year stay in Israyl, he stopped in Abilene, Texas to speak with his brother Buffalo Bill Hawkins, who later changed his name to Yisrayl Hawkins, concerning doing the work of the House of Yahweh of Odessa. However, Yisrayl declined to join Jacob in the work at that time. He had a secure job as a policeman in the Abilene Police Dept. and was also the song director for the local Worldwide Church of God in Abilene, Texas. So Jacob returned to Odessa and continued in doing the work as a minister of Yahweh, preaching and publishing the message of the Kingdom and promoting the family name of Yahweh. It wasn’t until late 1978, after Yisrayl Hawkins resigned his job on the Abilene Police Dept. and realized his position with the WCG was going to be short lived, that he decided to join Jacob Hawkins and the House of Yahweh. The preacher of the local WCG liked Yisrayl and appointed him into position of song leader. But after the minister was removed, Yisrayl left the WCG church shortly thereafter, knowing that his position was at risk of being terminated. He was without a job, without a faith, and set his sights in a different direction. It was at this time period, that Yisrayl Hawkins decided to do the work of Yahweh under his brothers direction. Jacob Hawkins and Oscar Alexander ordained him as an Elder in the House of Yahweh in Odessa and gave Yisrayl the commission, as an Elder, to do the work of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas, which was a branch of the House of Yahweh of Odessa. Jacob came to Abilene at the Feast of Tabernacles 1980 to dedicate the House of Yahweh as a branch of the work from Odessa, Texas. At that Feast, Kay Hawkins and Rachyl McMillan were ordained Deaconess. On March 23, 1981, Buffalo Bill Hawkins, Phyllis Kay Hawkins and Dennis Hawkins incorporated the House of Yahweh as a non profit corporation, a Christian church in the State of Texas. Reading from the incorporation papers of the House of Yahweh.

NOTICE ARTICLE FOUR:

The Corporation is organized for the purpose of maintaining a Christian Church for the worship of God, or for service to God and his people, and for the study of the word of God, and for no other purpose.

There are many who have come to this place in Abilene, Texas and never have seen these corporate papers. In fact, there have been many sermons brought forth by Yisrayl Hawkins and the Elders, who said that Christian churches are evil!

SHOULD A HOUSE OF YAHWEH BE CALLED A CHURCH?

Is the word church a righteous title for any House of Yahweh? There are some who would say that it is only a word. But most scholars know that words have meanings, and meanings are important to the believers of Yahweh.

Since we know that the scriptures were written in Hebrew, then translated into Greek, Latin, and then English, it should be understood that none of the Apostles or Prophets ever referred to their House of Yahweh as a church. Let’s examine this word and see why it is an abomination to call a House of Yahweh, a church, and why Yahweh’s people should not use this word to represent the House that Yahshua built.

Webster’s Dictionary of the Bible says the following about the word church: Middle English-chirche from Anglo Saxon CIRCE, from the Greek, KYRIAKON, the Lord’s House. Notice that this word comes from the word CIRCE. Most all dictionaries and encyclopedias will tell you that CIRCE would transform her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals through the use of magical potions. She was renowned for her knowledge of drugs and herbs. Circe, daughter of the sun, was a sorceress best known for her ability to turn men into animals with her magic wand. The daughter of Perse and Helios, and whose daughter is Aega (goddess of the sun) she is remembered for her encounter with Odysseus and his men, and renowned for her knowledge of magic and poisonous herbs.
When Odysseus and his men landed in Aeaea, his crew later met with Circe and were turned into pigs. Circe's spells however had no effect on Odysseus who earlier was given an herb by Hermes to resist her power. Circe realizing she was powerless over him lifted the spell from the crew and welcomed them in her home. After about a year when Odysseus leaves she warns them of the sirens they will encounter on their journey. Circe and Odysseus also bore a child together named Telegonus who later ruled over the Tyrsenians.Circe also has the powers for spiritual purification as she purifies the Argonauts for the murder of Apsyrtus. Circe was also known as the habitation or house of the Kyros, Lord, master, from Kyros meaning power or might. Church comes from the Greek word, Kyriakon, meaning: House of the Lord. Therefore, Circe was known also among the Greeks and the Anglo Saxons as Kyriakon, the Lord’s House. Lord’s House is English for the Hebrew, Baal’s House or Bet Baal. The English word for Baal is Lord or God. Circe was known known as the habitation or House of Baal, or Baal’s Cave.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the Englsih Language says that Circe or church comes from the Greek and Latin word meaning cave. In Greek mythology, Zeus which was just another name for Baal among the Greeks was known as the father of all the gods, he was the god of the sky and heavenly phenomena, especially thunder and lightning, he was the supreme ruler, the founder of law and order. He was the father of gods and men...Collier’s Encyclopedia, Zeus page 686. Also in Greek mythology, Zeus, the father of all the gods was said to have been born in a cave on the island of Crete. If Circe is Anglo Saxon for church, which means the habitation or cave of the lord, it makes Circe the mother of god or mother of Zeus, Baal, Lord, Kyrios. For he was born in her womb, cave, or church.

If one incorporates and worships in a church, as Yisrayl Hawkins has done, they are worshiping in the womb of Circe, according to the meaning of the word church. For this reason, we should be able to see why Yahweh’s people, any House of Yahweh, should never be represented by the word, CHURCH, for it’s roots are deep in paganism. Yahweh condemns worshiping in a church.

Isayah 65:2-5I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walks in a way that was not right, after their own thoughts. A people that provokes me to anger continually to my face; that sacrifices in gardens, and burns incense upon altars of bricks. Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh and broth of abominable things is in their vessels. Which say, Stand by yourself, come not near to me; for I am holier than you! These are smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all the day.

The word monument is #5341 and means: to keep, to hide; to be understood of adyta, recesses of the shrines of gods; or perhaps sepulchral caves.

Our Messiah spoke about these.

Mattithyah 8:22 “And Yahshua said unto him; follow me and let the dead bury their dead.”

We have seen that one of the meanings of church is cave. Yahweh condemns those who lodge in churches or circe. Yahweh does not want us worshiping in a church, nor His people called a church, or the place where He places His name to be called a church. Yahshua Messiah and the Apostles certainly did not call their work a church. History shows that they did not incorporate their ministry, nor get a charter from Rome. Corporations started in Rome, and the Catholic Church is the biggest non-profit chartered corporation in the world. It should be no surprise to Yahweh’s people that the Catholic Church doesn’t persecute other chartered corporations. For they know that they are daughters of the church.

When Yisrayl Hawkins incorporated a House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas, this was done without Jacob Hawkins knowledge. Yisrayl Hawkins bold move to incorporate and create his own House of Yahweh as a church, which is an abomination, caused a bitter separation between these brothers. Here is a re-copy of the original letter dated August 4, 1986 where Jacob Hawkins described his feelings about his brothers deception to a member of the faith:

Dear Sister Nancy:
    It was wonderful to hear from you again, and thank you for your tithes. May the blessings of Yahweh be yours.
    I am sorry that you folks found out the hard way about that thing in Abilene. That whole thing up there was a deception from the very beginning. I wrote you over two years ago and explained how Bill right after he was ordained set into take over The House of Yahweh and pull everything and everyone up to Abilene.
    There are some of the questions you ask that I had rather answer in person.  If you folks could come down some Friday afternoon and stay over for the Sabbath, we would put you up for the night, and Sabbath afternoon we would have the committee of The House of Yahweh to meet, for I would like for them to hear about what has went on up there at Abilene.
    I am sending you some pictures of The House of Yahweh people and also a picture of The House of Yahweh committee. In case you wonder about the young men who have only partial beards, it is because that is all they can grow.
    I am also sending you the booklet on the doctrines of The House of Yahweh, as I understand that Bill teaches contrary to most of the doctrines of The House of Yahweh. He also is all messed up on prophecy. About him saying or, teaching that he and I are the two witnesses, no one at this time knows who the two Witnesses are. They will be two men from The House of Yahweh, but Yahweh has not revealed who they are, and you can be assured that they will not be teaching what is taught in Abilene.
    The House of Yahweh in Odessa had its beginning in Nazareth, Israel, in 1975 long before Bill came into it, and while he was a member of the Worldwide Church of God in Abilene. As The House of Yahweh is an Israeli institution, we did not have to take out organization papers in this country. And as long as we are recorded with the city and county, this is all we have to do.
    As to mountain in Micah 4: meaning a nation, this is pure deception. Micah 4:1 tells where The House of Yahweh would be established, the mountains of Israel, as is shown in the parable in Ezek. 17: 22, 29. The House of Yahweh will be exalted in its location above all the other mountains and hills in Israel. This will be when it returns to Jerusalem. Mountains and hills sometimes implies religious sects. You can be sure it does not imply any nation.

I was very sorry to hear that Bill says Yeshua lied in his parables. Yeshua never at anytime ever told a lie to anyone, nor about anything. We are forbidden to lie. Yeshua said to let your yea be yea, and your nay be nay, and anything more than this comes from the evil one, Satan, Matt. 5:37. He also said in Rev. 21:8 that all liars will have a part in the lake of fire. Bill needs much prayer to keep from being lost. You can be sure that The House of Yahweh does not teach people to lie, cheat, steal or any such evil. I knew that when Bill pulled off from The House of Yahweh, that this would take place. That in Abilene is not The House of Yahweh.

    You can be sure that all men you see in The House of Yahweh will have beards, and be wearing a kepah and tallit, unless of course they are visitors. Even then they will wear a Kepah in the Sanctuary. You can be sure that no one will get into the Sanctuary in Odessa drunk, nor will you see any children in The House of Yahweh drinking, nor will you see any person any place at anytime in The House of Yahweh (Odessa) drunk. We do not allow such.  At the feasts, and our fellowship meetings after services on Friday night we have strong drink, but no one gets drunk, nor will you see any child drinking it. Also no man gets ordained in The House of Yahweh for the ministry until they have trained and proved themselves for three years, nor will there be deacons ordained until they have proved themselves for three years, and no unbearded man even becomes a member. If he can’t hold the job he has and wear a beard, he will have to change jobs. We do not condone sin to get tithe. I don’t care how wealthy he might be. We want righteousness in The House of Yahweh and we are very strict about it.
    You ask if Bill was with us when we went to Israel. No. We went to Israel in 1969, and after we went, Bill became a member of the worldwide church of God in Abilene, he and Kay both. Bill was ordained after he came out of Armstrong’s years ago by Elder A.N. Dugger, leader of Church of God (7th day) in Jerusalem. I was ordained again in 1971 in Jerusalem by the Mount Zion Fellowship. I am a Messianic Rabbi.

You ask where was first established in the 60s and 70s. There was no House of Yahweh until 1975, and as I said it was established upon the mountain of Israel, in Nazareth, Israel, the home town of Yeshua, just as Micah 4:1 foretold. Yeshua foretold that when the Apostles who he sent out in his day had finished their work, The House of Yahweh would go to sleep, and be no more until just before his return to this earth. Matt 25:1, 6. Just before Yeshua returns, termed as midnight in this parable, the cry would go forth to wake up the virgins, so that they might come out of Babylon into the newly established House of Yahweh.

    You ask was Bill to carry out this work in Abilene. Yes, he was. But he did not. He deceived me into thinking he would. I have all the letters he wrote against this work here after he was ordained by Oscar Alexander and me. He was ordained for that purpose, to be a Minister for The House of Yahweh in Odessa, in Abilene.
    Sister Nancy, that whole thing in Abilene was wrong from almost the start. The rest of your questions I would feel better answering in person. I hope you folks can come down for a Sabbath and I will answer all of your questions. He is my brother, and I love him, but I don’t love how he does.
    If you folks can come down, I think you will like what you see here, because what you see and hear here is just what we are. We believe in living up to what the Bible says, and nothing else. And you will not hear any evil or lies while you are here, nor will you be told to tell a lie. We do not try to take advantage of anyone.

                                   May Yahweh & Yeshua bless you,

                                                   Signed by Jacob Hawkins
P.S.
If you can come down, bring the other folks with you that you were talking about in your letter George Kovach and Yisrayl Wright. Also would you please send the pictures back.

When Yisrayl Hawkins incorporated the House of Yahweh, he incorporated a Christian Church, called the House of Yahweh. This, without a doubt, displeased Jacob Hawkins, who understood the prophecy and the Law of Yahweh and he never, in his lifetime, incorporated the House of Yahweh. As you can see in the above letter, Jacob did not approve of Yisrayl’s deceptive tactics. He did love his brother as the Law commands, but they never did the work of Yahweh together, in unity, as a body of believers again. Jacob Hawkins, because he loved his brother, allowed him to use the name, House of Yahweh and never sued Yisrayl for stealing the name.

One must remember the House of Yahweh is a body of living souls, a body of believers, a family name of a religious order, called Melchizedek/Messiah. It isn’t a name that is placed on a building, that makes a House of Yahweh. It most definitely is not an incorporated dead body, created by statute of any State or Federal Government. Yahweh does not need the permission of the State in order to show He exists or His House exists, for He is Sovereign above all nations and people. Nor do we need the permission of any man on earth to be called a House of Yahweh.

When researching the House of Yahweh in Odessa, Texas and the charter that they created, there is a letter that is most interesting in the incorporated charter papers. After Jacob Hawkins death, his sons, along with other Elders, were somehow convinced to incorporate their House of Yahweh, in the State of Texas. We have not been able to verify why at this time, but I think it is interesting to add the copy that is attached with their incorporation papers. If you notice, in this document, Yisrayl Hawkins is giving, Jacob Hawkins heirs, permission to use the name House of Yahweh. To the ordinary, casual, reader this would not seem to be a big deal. But to a true man of Yahweh, who proves all things, we can see the sinister fraud and deception, behind this letter. Yisrayl Hawkins, is authorizing and licensing, Jacob Hawkins, and his heirs giving them permission to use the name, House of Yahweh. However, Jacob Hawkins is the one who founded the family name, House of Yahweh, under Yahweh’s direction and inspiration, and it has been proven that Yisrayl Hawkins stole this name by incorporating and copyrighting it. Jacob Hawkins didn’t need Yisrayl Hawkins permission to use this name and if he had wanted to when he was alive, could have sued Yisrayl Hawkins for theft and fraud of the name, House of Yahweh. After his brother’s death, Yisrayl Hawkins gives the impression to Jacob’s children, that he can give authority for Jacob’s heirs to use this name, and has this letter attached to their incorporation papers. This is the evil that befalls people when they think that they own, what is not theirs to own. They use deceptive practices to fool the unsuspecting. The name, House of Yahweh, belongs to Yahweh, given to His Son, Yahshua, who is heir of all things. He has already given permission to the believers to use it, through covenant relationship that started with Abraham. I challenge anyone to prove that any Patriarch, Prophet, or Apostle incorporated the name, House of Yahweh and needed, or received permission from the State, to use it.


Numbers 12:7 “My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine house.”

I Chronicles 17:14 “But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore.”

Isayah 56:5 “Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.”

Hosheyah 9:15 “All their wickedness [is] in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes [are] revolters.”

The above scriptures make it very plain to see that, House of Yahweh, is Yahweh’s House and to incorporate it, would make it the State/Federal Government’s House, which would take the Sovereignty away from Yahweh’s people. To prove this fact, read the attached document of Article 17 of the House of Yahweh, Odessa’s charter.


Notice if the assets are not disposed to other 501c3, churches and non-profit organizations, then the District Court of Texas will dispose of it’s assets. Also the directors, have to disperse all the assets to other 501c3, churches or non profit organizations, not back to the members of the organization. Can you imagine spending your whole life paying your tithes, offerings, and freewill offerings to a House of Yahweh, thinking it would benefit the body of believers, only to find that everything you have put into that organizational body can be given to other churches, or be disposed of by unbelievers who would decide where the assets would be dispensed. Does this appear that Yahweh or His representatives are in control of any House of Yahweh, if it is an incorporated 501c3 organization? Corporations are dead bodies, they are not alive. Yahweh is not a dead body, He is eternal life. Those who are called by His name, are alive and can receive eternal life. Please read our study on the “Law concerning making a treaty with the godworshiping nations.” It can be read at www.bayithyahweh.org under the link Corporations.


YISRAYL HAWKINS AND THE TEACHINGS COMING FROM HIS HOUSE OF YAHWEH

Yisrayl Hawkins says that the House of Yahweh that he founded is the only place of worship to Yahweh, and one of his reasons is because it is directly due west of Yerusalem, Israel. Let’s examine this information a little bit closer. For some reason latitude seems to be important to Yisrayl Hawkins to prove that Abilene, Texas is the place for the House of Yahweh to be located. Years ago he stated that Abilene, Texas was due west of Jerusalem, Israel, which it isn’t! Since he was wrong, he had to revise his directions and say that Abilene, Texas is due west of Abilene, Israel, which it isn’t. If you travel from Abilene, Israel (Ibillin, Israel) 32/49/20.64 directly west to Abilene, Texas 32/26/47 you would be off course 26 minutes. So maybe he doesn’t necessarily mean exactly on the same latitude, just close? So what is the point? If the malak comes from the east and heads directly west with Yisrayl Hawkins co-ordinates, he’ll miss the location by 26 minutes. Can we wait for him to find the right spot? I am not sure I would want Yisrayl Hawkins giving me directions to any place that I needed to be at exactly, on time, would you?

The last days House of Yahweh was not founded first in Abilene, Texas. The extreme last days House of Yahweh, the family name of Yahweh, was founded and started first in 1973 in Nazareth, Israel, and then brought to the United States of America, by Jacob Hawkins in 1975 in Odessa, Texas. Just for the record, Odessa, Texas latitude is 31/51/48, while Jerusalem is at 31/47. That is 4 minutes apart and depending on what part of the city you are in, you could be right on latitude with Odessa’s directions.

We find the following information from the Prophetic Watchman, dated Feb.March-1988.


Jacob Hawkins did not incorporate the House of Yahweh, but founded it in Nazareth, Israyl, in 1973 and then brought this work to the USA and continued it in Odessa, Texas in 1975.

A Christian church, called the House of Yahweh, was started in Abilene, Texas March 23, 1981. Yisrayl Hawkins calls this House of Yahweh the true work of Yahweh, because it is called with Yahweh’s Name. However, we can see that this is an established Christian Church, and cannot at this time be the true work of Yahweh. They say they keep the Feasts, but the problem is they keep some of them on the wrong date. Read or ask for our study on Passover to find out the correct date for Passover or go to www.bayithyahweh.org to read it online to compare the difference between what a True House of Yahweh teaches and what the counterfeit ones teach. Jacob Hawkins wrote in the letter mentioned above, that Yisrayl Hawkins was teaching deception from the beginning. It appears he was talking about the beginning of the incorporation of the name, House of Yahweh, as a State sponsored religion! Most of Yisrayl Hawkins’s followers have no idea how far the deception really is, because most have never read the charter. This Law of Yahweh exposes the lies and deception that Yisrayl Hawkins has propagated to his followers. It is with much prayer, that we hope, that he will repent of the evil he has done, by dishonoring the family name, House of Yahweh, through incorporation, and deceptive practices. If he repents, and brings forth fruits of repentance, then and only then, will he honor the name of Yahweh, House of Yahweh, and will Yahweh forgive him of sin.

Isayah 44:22 “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.”

Yahweh says that he will blot out sins. But in order to have any sins blotted out, one must repent! Yisrayl Hawkins needs to repent in order to have his sins forgiven! He is the overseer, of many people who love Yahweh, and who blindly follow his teachings. They have been outwitted, outsmarted, and conned out of their money, children, and possessions. But mostly, they have been deceived into believing that they are at the true House of Yahweh, receiving salvation, when in reality they are at a Christian Church, called a House of Yahweh, being taught to worship a man, who is a god to them and can do no wrong.

PROPAGANDA, AGAINST WHOM?

Yisrayl Hawkins says that the media and the world preaches propaganda about him. They say Satan inspires propaganda about them? The only propaganda we have been able to find is the propaganda that they spread about themselves. They openly welcome homosexuals into the congregation as revealed in the open letter that was sent to Taylor, Anson, and Callahan County residences, in 2009. The editor, personally witnessed a lesbian being allowed into the congregation in 2010, after she left and came back, 3 to 4 times, over a 3 year period. Each time she returned, she lured many women into a homosexual experience. On her last return, after the Feast of Tabernacles, 2010, she left with an Elder’s wife whom she had lured into a homosexual lifestyle. They now live together as a lesbian couple in Abilene, Texas. Is this what we should be exposing our wives and daughters to?

They have also allowed child molesters into the congregation, who have repeatedly molested many young girls, throughout the years. One such molester was an Elder, who is now serving 30 years in prison for molesting his step-daughter. What most people in their congregation don’t know or realize is that he was never brought up on charges for molesting his biological children. Would you want your children around child molesters? Now he has been promoted to sainthood. The propaganda to protect the child molesters, that Yisrayl Hawkins is promoting can be found in his book entitled, “The Book of Yisrayl 8th book, part II”, of which is enclosed for your viewing. Is Yisrayl concerned with protecting Yedidiyah Hawkins or himself?

The Prophets of Yahweh has warned us about the prophets who dream.

Yeremyah 23:25-28I have heard what the prophets say, who prophesy lies in My Name, saying; I have dreamed! I have dreamed! How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies! Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own minds; Who devise, to cause My people to forget My Name through their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbor, just as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal. The Prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream! He who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully! What is the chaff, compared to the wheat? says Yahweh.”

Continuing from the Book of Yisrayl page 310.
Let’s examine the above mentioned points in this book:

1.) Notice paragraph 2 on the left margin. Yisrayl Hawkins states that it was due to a false accusation that Yedidiyah Hawkins was arrested. This is an outright lie! Yedidiyah Hawkins was turned in by a member of the House of Yahweh, who had heard the testimony of Yedidiyah’s step daughter. This young man, then called the authorities on Yedidiyah Hawkins. The District Attorney’s office felt that there was more than enough facts to convict Yedidiyah Hawkins on child molestation charges. He has now been convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison, in a Texas Prison Institute, and there is no appeal process being done for this Elder by his leader or congregational leaders. He was given a 3rd rate lawyer to defend him, while Yisrayl Hawkins hired the best attorneys in Texas to represent himself at his court hearings, when he was arrested in 2008. Yisrayl Hawkins’s case never went to trial, and he was never convicted, thanks to having the best lawyers in Texas on his case. Yedidiyah on the other hand is serving 30 years in prison.

2.) As for the testimony of the prosecution being angry and bitter, that also is another lie! The witnesses that were called for the prosecution told the truth and the facts, and they were not told in anger or bitterness. The author personally has interviewed some of these witnesses to verify the facts of this case and Yedidiyah Hawkins, was guilty as charged. But most importantly, he was let down by the the hierarchy that he protected. This man should have received some serious counseling and help, from qualified professionals, when he was first accused of child molestation, many years before 2008. In order to protect the institution, or corporation, this book of Yisrayl was written to keep others from leaving the institution and lies had to be fabricated to offset the truth of the matter. Yisrayl Hawkins congregation for the most part is so devoted to what he says and writes that they would believe a lie, and most have bought into this story that is in this Book of Yisrayl.

II Thessalonians 2:3,4,9-12Let no man deceive you by any means; for unless there comes a falling away first, and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, Who exalts himself above all that is called gods, or that is worshiped; so that he, as a god, sits in the House of Yahweh, showing himself that he is a god. Whose coming is according to the energy of Satan, with all power, and signs, and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of sin in those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, Yahweh will send them strong delusion, that they would believe the deception, In order that those may be judged as not having believed the truth, but as having delighted in sin.”

3.) Faithful and reliable witnesses testified on Yedidiyah’s behalf. Another lie! It has been revealed to the editor, that several of the witnesses, who I might add, many were young teenage girls, were prepped and coached on what to say on the stand at the trial. They actually perjured themselves to protect Yedidiyah Hawkins, not knowing the consequences of perjury.

Yisrayl Hawkins, has followed the ways of the gods. He will stop at nothing to protect his 501c3 corporation, which he calls the work. Here is an article that exposes the Catholic Church, see if you can find any parallels with what Yisrayl Hawkins practices in his church concerning his Priests, notice the highlighted part.


Yes, the Priests/Elders of the House of Yahweh protect their overseer, and he protects them, even covering up sin, just like the Catholic Church does. Should we, as a House of Yahweh, do such practices? The Priesthood is protected because their priesthood, brings in money for the corporation. The Corporation is protected at any cost! If the people lose faith in their Priests, they will lose faith in the organization, such is the fear of Yisrayl Hawkins and his Priests. They are the ones who shear the sheep, for their shepherd.

Yechetzqyah (Ezekiel) 34:5 “And they were scattered, because [there is] no righteous shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.”

Zecharyah 13:7 “Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man [that is] my fellow says Yahweh of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.”

Ephesians 5:11,12And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.”

Here is what District Attorney Shane Deel had to say about Yisrayl Hawkins in a news report in the Abilene Reporter News on 1/9/09: “Callahan County District Attorney Shane Deel, however, sees an ulterior motive and said the newsletter is part of a last-ditch, “propaganda effort to attempt to assist Yisrayl Hawkins. “That’s the whole reason for the existence of the corporation — to benefit him personally. I don’t expect this effort to have any impact on his legal proceedings. I think it is actually a sign of desperation.” Think about this article, Shane Deel has never been in the House of Yisrayl, but he hit the nail on the head!  He knows propaganda when he sees it! And notice he mentions this propaganda and the existence of the corporation is for Yisrayl Hawkins benefit!

Here is Yisrayl Hawkins response: Hawkins encouraged Abilenians and others to call or stop by and tour the facilities. “Our phone lines are always open to calls if you have questions about us — The House of Yahweh,” Hawkins said. “Our gates are open to anyone who would like to come to services or to just say ‘hello’ or ‘shalom.’ “See for yourself what we believe and teach, and the simple way we conduct our lives.” Of course anyone who has been to this House of Yahweh, now called the House of Yisrayl, knows this to be a lie. They have security guards at the front gate and around the perimeter of their church grounds, everyone has to go through metal detectors when entering the church building, and security guards monitor anyone who would visit the church unannounced. If you don’t believe this statement, then go and visit this place unannounced. They live in constant fear of what they call, outside persecution. But the only persecution to it’s members, that the editor has seen, is the persecution that comes from within, by their own hierarchy.

They also teach artificial insemination for women. Where can that teaching be found in the Holy Scriptures? Who would be the father of the child, or woman’s head, if she is artificially inseminated? Does Yahweh allow a women the option to have children without a head? Who will guide her and the child? Does that make scriptural sense? Should a House of Yahweh have to protect child molesters and ignore the fate of the children? Where in the scriptures can you find any prophet ever persecuted for being a child molester? The Prophets were persecuted for upholding the laws of Yahweh and for preaching the message of Yahweh!

THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH IN ABILENE, TEXAS PROMOTES YISRAYL HAWKINS, NOT YAHWEH

II Corinthians 10:17,18But he who glories, let him glory in Yahweh. For it is not the man who commends himself who is approved, but the man whom Yahweh commends.

We live in a world where people in authority, without the true spirit of Yahweh guiding them, allow power and money to corrupt their righteous intentions. There is a wise saying that goes like this: “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power, corrupts absolutely.”  This is what has occurred to the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas. It is important to reveal every fact of this organization, so that every House of Yahweh will see the corruption of power, when wise counsel is not adhered to, according to Yahweh’s laws.

Proverbs 19:20 “Hear counsel and receive instruction that you might be wise in the latter end.”

Yisrayl Hawkins and his followers brag on his accomplishments, which is supposed to impress those who read about him. He is bragging about himself, not about the body of Messiah. If one reads their website and magazine, you can see His House of Yahweh is only about promoting Yisrayl Hawkins!

Let’s consider his resume taken from the monthly magazine called PW, dated January 2011 and from their website www.yahweh.com. Here is some information at their website.

Yisrayl Hawkins was raised as a humble farm boy in Oklahoma by sharecroppers who instilled within him the ethics of hard work and service to others, as well as basic moral values. Having the Holy Scriptures read to him daily in his youth, he developed a love and passion for them that would lead to his life-long in-depth study of both the history and the prophecies found therein, from Genesis to Revelation.
While attending college in Missouri, Yisrayl and his brother Yaaqob began their ministry in the surrounding communities. Afterwards, they hosted a radio talk show in Graham, Texas and then later in Eastland. During that time, they taught the prophecies found in the Scriptures. At the age of thirty-three, Yisrayl moved to Abilene, Texas where Yahweh would lead him to establish The House of Yahweh in 1983. It was at that time that he completely devoted himself to preaching and publishing the Message of Salvation.
Since then, he has written over 50 books and booklets relating to the history and prophecies in the Scriptures, as well as many other subjects relating to Scripture, from the Sabbath Day to the health Laws. He publishes a monthly Newsletter and magazine called The Prophetic Word. Besides giving a sermon weekly, he also tapes a weekly program called the Prophetic Word Program that is currently seen worldwide via Internet, and public and satellite television.
Being a teacher and long-time promoter of world peace, he has witnessed to dozens of leaders in the United States, Middle East, Armenia, and Rome regarding matters of concern, especially peace. He has also participated in the following events: The Millennium Forum, United Nations Headquarters, NY; The International Peace Conference-First Session, Ottawa, Ontario Canada; The Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders, United Nations Headquarters, NY; The International Peace Conference-Second Session, Ottawa, Ontario Canada; UN Celebration of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, Rome, Italy. He hosted the Third Global Conference On Peace, Abilene, Texas.
Today, at the age of seventy-five, he still dedicates himself eighteen to twenty hours a day to the service of Yahweh, his congregation, community, the world at large, and the work that he lives for, which is bringing True Peace, Joy, and Abundant Living to all of mankind.

Now when you go to the website that has this resume, of Pastor Yisrayl Hawkins, who is the leader of this large Christian Church in the Abilene area, we see there are numerous pictures of him shaking hands with politicians, children, Hebrew African Israelites, women and other important people. Certainly this would impress the reader that this man is important. You might think that this man was running for some kind of political office in the future. One might also think that this has to be a Holy man, for he is shown with his hands on the Bible, and he is smiling in the pictures, like the people he is with must be life long friends? You can get many impressions from pictures. What do you see? If this was your first time looking at this sight and learning of this man, you would most likely be convinced that surely this man has to be a Holy Man of Yahweh? Consider the resume that is at the site. Would you question and prove what is written to be true or false? Let’s look at some of the accomplishments of this seemingly, great man.
  • He was a humble farm boy.
  • He went to the schools of higher learning, by attending College.
  • He was a radio host.
  • He completely devotes himself to preaching and publishing his message.
  • He has written over 50 books and booklets.
  • He publishes a monthly magazine and newsletter.
  • He gives weekly sermons.
  • He tapes weekly programs.
  • He has witnessed to dozens of leaders all over the world, regarding matters of concern.
  • He participated in many important events, all listed above.
  • He dedicates himself from 18-20 hours a day to the service of Yahweh, his congregation, the world at large, and the work he loves.


These accomplishments should certainly impress upon the reader that this has to be a Holy Man! Certainly someone with so many accomplishments must be sent by Yahweh? In fact, this man seems to be a one man show. He does it all! Now aren’t you impressed with this resume. Certainly if I go to Clyde, Texas and attend this Church, I could receive salvation!  If you look at the pictures of Him, he does look like a Holy Man, doesn’t he? The only problem is that Yisrayl Hawkins doesn’t have a second witness to establish most of his accomplishments. Remember the Law of Yahweh says a matter cannot be established unless supported by two or three witnesses! Think about it! How can you verify any of his childhood? What college did he attend and how long did he attend? Did he graduate and what course did he take? He actually condemns colleges in his sermons, but yet brags about going to college. Most of the books written, supposedly, by him were written by many other members of the congregation, this can be proven by Kay Hawkins, Elders, and even Yisrayl Hawkins himself, admitting to this fact in older sermons, which by the way, have been taken off of the website at www.yahweh.com and can no longer be heard or downloaded. So are we impressed with this resume? Will this man bring us salvation? Is this resume complete truth, or is it a mixture?

As for the dignitaries he has met, I talked to Vicky Michaels, also known as, Riyyah Schneider (Elder Shaul Schneider Hawkins, 1st wife), who went to Israel with Yisrayl Hawkins, when he had these pictures taken in Israel, and which are hanging all along the walls in his church in Clyde, Texas. These pictures were arranged through a media group in Israel, whom Yisrayl Hawkins paid quite well, in order to be able to shake hands with Middle East dignitaries. This was done to build up his resume. As for the conferences and events he supposedly attended, I am not sure all can be verified of his attendance, or him being a speaker. But one thing is for sure, the editor personally attended the 3rd Global Peace Conference in 2001 in Clyde, Texas and to this date, has never seen Dr. Oryamo Johnson, Mr. Ataf Haj, and the Armenian Vice Minister of Education, since that conference, nor any fruits from the work of that conference, that was supposedly being done with them. What occurred to these dignitaries who were supposedly working closely with Yisrayl Hawkins and promoting the Peaceful Solution Program? Since I was in attendance and a speaker, I know that the conference was mostly House of Yahweh members who put on a great show of acting like we someone important, to impress these other dignitaries, when in reality we were just followers of Yisrayl Hawkins and promoting his agenda. In fact, what occurred to all the Peace Groups that were working with Yisrayl Hawkins and the Peaceful Solution Program? What about the Peaceful Solution school that was supposed to be built in Ibillin, Israel? Just more deceptive practices by Yisrayl Hawkins to win more converts and get more money. But having no fruits to show!

Now continuing to look at the website, go to the link:
ABOUT US, and look at the description titled: What is the House of Yahweh: Let’s look at some of what they say about the House of Yahweh:
  • The first and last House of Yahweh were established in a city called Abilene.
  • If you travel from Abilene, Israyl and headed west you would land at Abilene, Texas.
  • The House of Yahweh is known for teaching and practicing the laws of Yahweh.
  • They keep the Feasts.
  • They are hated and there are so many vicious rumors spread about them.
  • Satan has inspired propaganda against them.
  • There is only one thing that truly makes The House of Yahweh unique and that is, we have the only SOLUTION FOR PEACE.
  • We are the only group on earth bringing this solution to the world leaders.
  • The Peaceful Solution is Yahweh’s 613 Laws of Peace written in every bible.
  • We invite you to learn more about The House of Yahweh and experience for yourself the peace, joy and abundant living provided by the keeping of Yahweh’s Laws.
  • Just visit one of our publication pages to download our free monthly magazine, free monthly newsletter, free booklet page or contact us with any questions or comments.


Now to the unsuspecting reader, this would seem to be the place to worship Yahweh. They say their the last House of Yahweh, directly due west from Abilene, Israel. They say their known for teaching and practicing the Laws of Yahweh. They say they keep the Feasts. They say their hated by the whole world. So this must be a righteous place, especially if everyone hates them! They say they are the only group bringing a peaceful solution to the world leaders. They have free magazines, booklets, and you can actually contact them and get your questions answered! Look at the pictures on the site. They have young men helping the older men, young girls helping the older women, and in the middle of them all is their Great Leader and Pastor. This must be a righteous place! Now aren’t you convinced! This seems like heaven on earth! Certainly Yahweh must be in this place! Just look at that big Sanctuary, with all the beautiful sandstone rocks! Don’t be fooled by what looks righteous. We have been warned in the scriptures about such workers.

II Corinthians 11:13,14For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of the Messiah. And no marvel: For Satan, the same, is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if Satan’s ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

Deception has many faces, and media propaganda, can make anything look wonderful or bad, depending on what you want to reveal. Yahshua Messiah said this about such groups.

Mattithyah 23:27,28Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed sepulchers which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead bones and all uncleanness. In the same way you appear outwardly righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and the breaking of Yahweh’s Law.”

FACTS:
  • There is not one scripture in the Holy Scriptures that says that the last days House of Yahweh would be established in Abilene, Texas.
  • They keep the Passover on the wrong day.
  • Satan has not inspired propaganda against them, their sins testify against them!
  • They are not the only group of believers attempting to bring the Laws of Peace to this world.
  • There is not one mention in the Holy Scriptures of a Peaceful Solution Character Education Program bringing peace to the whole world.
  • It is the teaching of the Laws and the Prophets that will bring true peace to the world.


THE WORK OF YAHWEH ALLOWED TO CONTINUE IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE SEED OF THE ESTABLISHED WORK OF YAHWEH

So why did Yahweh allow his Name to be incorporated and carried on, by Yisrayl Hawkins? Will Yahweh allow this falsehood to continue? We all know that Yahweh upholds his Law and His servants who follow His Laws. There is no doubt that the facts show that Jacob Hawkins did find the name, and called it the family, called House of Yahweh. And there is no doubt that Yisrayl Hawkins was allowed to continue to keep this name, “House of Yahweh” alive, after the death of Jacob Hawkins, even though it was an incorporated church. In fact he has copyrighted, licensed, trademarked, and registered it in the archives of the State and Federal Government. But does this mean this is a work of Yahweh or a House of Yahweh because he did all these things? Can a thief own what is stolen and claim ownership to what is not his, to own? Is the House of Yahweh a church? What is the House of Yahweh? Who is the House of Yahweh? For those of you who are not familiar with the Law of a True and a False Prophet/Witness of Yahweh, please email us for a copy, or go to www.bayithyahweh.org for more information on this most important Law of Yahweh in order to understand how Yahweh works with mankind and allows true and false prophets/witnesses to bring forth perfection to his people.

Yechetzqyah 19:23,25,30 “Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? says Father Yahweh; NO, but rather that he would turn back from his wicked ways, and live. Yet you say; The way of Yahweh is not equal. Hear now O House of Yisrayl; Is not My way equal? Are not your ways unequal? Therefore, I will Judge you, O House of Yisrayl, every one according to his own ways, says Father Yahweh. REPENT, and turn from all your transgressions; so iniquity will not be your ruin.

Of course a thief cannot own what he has stolen. He can use and counterfeit what he has stolen, but he will never own the possession that was taken from it’s rightful owner or his heirs, especially if it was done through deception and fraud. It is up to the owner to rightfully claim what has been stolen from him. In this case, of the family name of Yahweh, called House of Yahweh, the true believers will take this name back from any thief, and use it. Yahweh owns His Name and His family Name, House of Yahweh. All one has to do is establish their authority from Yahweh, and show Yahweh that they want to be part of the covenant relationship, through repentance, confession, baptism, and conversion. Yahweh will then recognize them and allow them to be a part of His family. No man on earth can take this authority, nor take the sovereignty away from Yahweh. They can try, but Yahweh will reveal what and who they are, just as this article is revealing to you! That is why Yahweh’s laws bring forth judgment, just as the Prophet Yechetzqyah stated in the above mentioned scripture. This law is being brought forth to declare the right and authority, by Yahweh, to use the name, House of Yahweh, and this is our declaration to the whole world! This is what we say to Yisrayl Hawkins and his house, as the remnant of the seed of Yaaqob and of Yahshua Messiah, should they attempt to destroy, what is being revealed to the whole world.

Acts 5:35,38 “He said to them; Men of Yisrayl, be careful what you intend to do about these men. Now about the case, I advise you: Withdraw from these men, and leave us alone. For if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing. But if it is of the Mighty One, you cannot destroy it, and you might even be found to be fighting against the Mighty One!

The House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas, now proclaiming to be the house of Yisrayl, is a work that promotes a man, named Yisrayl Hawkins, this is fact! It will come to nothing, because it is of men, unless they repent! When it does come to nothing, which is occurring at this time, the righteous people of Yahweh, need to know that Yahweh has not forsaken his people. Yahweh will provide, as he told Abraham on the mountain of Yahweh, just as He is providing for those who have been expelled to this day!

YAHWEH’S LEVIRITE LAW USED TO PROTECT THE SEED OF YAAQOB

Deuteronomy 25:5,6 “If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside of the family. Her Husband’s brother must take her and marry her to perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her. The first son she bears shall carry on the name of the dead brother so his name will not be blotted out from Israyl.”

The Law of Yahweh teaches us that if your brother dies and he does not have a child, then the living brother is to take the widow and bring forth a man/child to carry the dead brothers name. This is shown to us allegorically between Yaaqob and Yisrayl, two bodies, two different houses. Without Yahweh’s revealing, Yisrayl Hawkins, took the woman (House of Yahweh, Odessa) and brought forth a seed (those who follow Yahweh and His Laws) on behalf of Yaaqob’s work, through his teachings, and carried on the Name, House of Yahweh. Now, Yisrayl did not know who the seed/children of Yaaqob was, because it is Yahweh who brings forth the increase. It is Yahweh who has kept Yaaqob’s seed protected, as they would have never been allowed to grow together, had they been known or found out, by Yisrayl Hawkins. These two children, two seeds, two houses under the same name, from the same womb, like Isaac and Ishmayl, have grown up together and now are grown, spiritually. They are separated as it is written: “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman will never be heir with the son of the free woman.”  They carry on the name, “House of Yahweh.”

Hebrews 9:16,17 “For where there is a last will and testament, it is also necessary for the death of the testator (The House of Yahweh under Yaaqob Hawkins) to be established. For a testament takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive.”

Now, the House of Yahweh under Yisrayl Hawkins management, was allowed by Yahweh to continue, so that the name, House of Yahweh, would not be lost or forgotten and Yahweh could keep his covenant promise alive, until Jacob’s seed would grow and mature and be able to reclaim the family name, House of Yahweh. The LevirIte law was necessary and performed by the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas, in order to keep the seed (family name House of Yahweh) alive, the true believers and remnant of Yahweh. Yisrayl Hawkins brought forth a holy seed, a body of believers, for his dead brother, Yaaqob Hawkins, through the widow, or woman, (House of Yahweh) which was protected for a time, until the revealing of the Saints of Yahweh, the remnant of Yahweh could be sealed. For now, as the Apostle Shaul states, the children of the promise are free from the bondage of slavery, which is evident in the House of Yisrayl, called a House of Yahweh in Clyde, Texas. The believers of Yahweh who are scattered at this time, are being brought to a True House of Yahweh, not a building, but converting their hearts and minds, as the prophecy shows. It will be Jacob Hawkins seed, a true established House of Yahweh in these last days, who will bring back a True House of Yahweh to the nations and people. They will come from a House of Yahweh out of Abilene, out from under the incorporated church, as well as from other assemblies and sacred name groups who call themselves believers of Yahweh, or more properly, House of Yahweh. They will join together as the 12 tribes of Israel, and the Gentiles into the family name, House of Yahweh, as the prophecy shows and once again return to Israel, when the time is ready.

Isayah 2:3 “And many people will go and say: Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the House of Yahweh of Yaaqob and he will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Yerusalem.”

This scripture more properly translated means:

Isayah 2:2,3 "It will come to pass in the extreme last days, that the Kingdom of the House of Yahweh will be established in the beginning, chief, head, family of the 12 Tribes, in Israyl, and will be exalted and taken and carried to another Nation, congregation, the United States of America, and all the Tribes, family, will gather to it. And many people will go and say; Come let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the House of Yahweh, of Yaaqob, and HE will teach us of Yahweh's Laws and we will walk in Yahweh's Paths. For out of Zion will go forth the Law and the word of Yahweh will depart from Jerusalem."

The word of Yahweh departed from Jerusalem, when a House of Yahweh, established by Yahshua Messiah, was killed by the House of Yahweh. In these last days in 1975, the family name was taken to Odessa, Texas. And it will be brought back to Israel, once the saints of Yahweh of the 144,000 are sealed. Then the tribulation will begin.

Later on in this study, we will examine more of Yisrayl Hawkins teachings and practices that have brought shame to the family name, House of Yahweh.

THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH, THE SEED OF JACOB’S WORK

The Prophets showed us that we will be taught Yahweh’s ways and walk in His paths from the House of Yahweh, of Yaaqob. I know at this time there are many believers here in the United States and the several states, as well throughout the world, who are sincere in their loyalty to Yahweh. Many have established their own organizations, churches, religious organizations and body of believers, to serve Yahweh. They have many names, but none carry the true name Bayith Yahweh or House of Yahweh, especially the one in Clyde, Texas because that one is an incorporated church, a counterfeit. The House of Yahweh is a prophesied work started by Yahshua Messiah, through Yahweh’s inspiration. Many cannot accept the work called House of Yahweh that is in Clyde, Texas at this time, and rightly so. No true believer should accept a government sponsored church as being the true established work of Yahweh. The true House of Yahweh will continue by expounding, correcting, and teaching from the Holy Scriptures. Those who plant seeds and teach the Law of Yahweh, teach a House of Yahweh, a family of Yahweh, doesn’t require a building, but to build the heart and mind according to the Laws of Yahweh. Jacob Hawkins is physically dead, but the House of Yahweh he founded, is not!

Hebrews 9:17For a testament takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive.

We are not here to exalt Jacob Hawkins, only to establish scriptural facts. This name, House of Yahweh, that Jacob found is what the true believers call themselves. Upon his death, his testament took effect, he left us the revealing of the name, House of Yahweh. We should not be ashamed to be called, House of Yahweh. Are you? This House is not a building, a corporation, or a religion. It is a family name, that is used by those of the family of Yahweh. Should anyone use it to create a business, where one man, or group of men profit, then it is not a true House of Yahweh!

THE TRUE BELIEVERS WON’T HAVE HATRED FOR THEIR BROTHERS

The prophets showed us many scriptures speaking about this family, called House of Yahweh. For those of you who may have a hatred for Yisrayl Hawkins, who is ruling over his church called the House of Yahweh, we ask that you show forgiveness, and pray for your brother or enemy, whichever you choose to call him. For Yahweh will deal with him for his sins, and it may be that Yahweh will grant him repentance. We must remember that this work we are talking about is to fulfill Yahweh’s plan. This plan will go forward and we will not need Yisrayl Hawkins permission, nor seek it. He can either repent and humble himself, like all of us must do in order to enter the Kingdom, or he will be left outside the gates of the True House of Yahweh, like he has done to so many others in his organization. The House of Yahweh is a very special name and the name of a very special family. We should all want to be a part of it. I find it disturbing that when someone hears the name, House of Yahweh, they can’t help but associate it with Yisrayl Hawkins, as if he owns this name. Because he has brought shame to himself, does that mean that the name, “House of Yahweh” must also be shameful to hear or use? We must put off this mentality if we ever expect to come into unity, as believers. I emplore all the Assemblies, congregations, and tribes of Yahweh to join this family name, in bringing forth a righteous government for all mankind. The scattered 12 Tribes of Israyl are waiting on us! Yahshua Messiah is waiting on us! If Yahweh is with us, who can be against us?

Reading some of the prophecies concerning the work of Yaaqob’s seed, we ask that you believe what the prophets have spoken concerning this last days work, founded by Jacob Hawkins, our physically dead brother, but remember the work he started is not dead!

Yeremyah 30:10,20,24 “Therefore do not fear, O My servant Yaaqob, says Yahweh; nor be dismayed; O Yisrayl; for behold, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity; and Yaaqob will return, and will have rest, and be quiet; and no one will make him afraid. Their children also will be as in former times, and their congregations will be established before Me; and I will punish all who oppress them. The fierce anger of Yahweh will not return until He has done it, and until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the last days you will understand it!

Yeremyah 31:11For Yahweh has redeemed Yaaqob, and ransomed him from the hands of him who was stronger than he.”

Isayah 10:20,21 “It will come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel, and such who have escaped of the House of Yaaqob, will no longer depend on him who struck them down, but will depend on Yahweh, the Holy One of Israyl, in truth. The remnant will return, the remnant of Yaaqob, to the Mighty Father.

Isayah 49:6 “And He said; It is not enough that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Yaaqob and to restore the protected of Israel; I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, so you may be My Salvation to the ends of the earth.

Isayah 65:9And I will bring forth a seed out of Yaaqob and out of Yahdah an inheritor of My mountains; and My elect will inherit it, and My servants will live there.

Malakyah (Malachi) 4:4-6Remember the Law of Mosheh My servant, which I commanded through him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Yliyah, (which is the prophets strength of Yahweh), before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh; And Yahweh shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

I Kepha 4:17 “For the time has come that Judgment must begin at the House of Yahweh and if it first begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the message of Yahweh?”

Amosyah 8:11; 9:11,13,14 “Behold, the days come, says Father Yahweh, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Yahweh. In that day however, I will raise up the tabernacle of David that has fallen, and repair it’s breaches. I will raise up his ruins, and I will rebuild it as in the days of old. Behold, the days are coming says Yahweh, that the plowman will overtake the reaper, and I will bring back the captives of my people Israel, and I will plant them upon their land, and they will no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, says Yahweh your Father!”

Yahweh is gathering the believers of His family together. If you are a true believer then you will believe what the prophets have written concerning this last days work, a family called, House of Yahweh! This work will preach and publish the Laws of Yahweh and have the testimony of Yahshua our Messiah. We will have a place and Name within Yahweh’s House.

Isayah 56:5 “Even unto them will I give in my House and within my walls a place and a Name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.”

THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH CONFIRMED TO BE THE TRUE NAME OF THE WORK AND FAMILY OF YAHWEH DISCOVERED AT TEL ARAD, ISRAEL, POSSIBLY THE JEBUSITE YERUSALEM AND THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID

In June of 2008, the editor was blessed to take a trip to Israel with his family. While there Yahweh revealed to him the same information that was revealed to Jacob Hawkins 35 years earlier.  The information that Yahweh revealed, is that the House of Yahweh, which was found in Tel Arad, proved Jacob’s Hawkins testimony to be true. Yahweh had shown the House of Yahweh to me, to verify without my knowledge, that His Family, called House of Yahweh, is for real and that the name of His Family, is “House of Yahweh”. The gentlemen I met, Rabbi Howshua Amariel, who was knowledgeable of the artifacts and history concerning this site, revealed the importance of the House of Yahweh located at Tel Arad. I don’t think it would be fair if I didn’t share his information. And it is my hope that you will believe in the House of Yahweh and that it is the name of our family, our faith! Here is the research that he uncovered in the last decade from research in the area of Tel Arad. This was taken from his site at tcprayer.bravehost.com. Please be aware that some images from his site were not downloaded because they are either not on the site or wouldn’t download.

We first became aware of the house of Yahweh artifacts in 1986 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art special presentation "Treasures of the Holy Land". The show was hosted by the Director of the Metropolitan Museum Phillip Demarbilo, with the help of Martin Weyl, the director of the Israel Museum. This was the first American exabition to survey the archaeological collections of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. However, the show didn't mention where the artifact concerning the House of Yahweh was discovered. Nevertheless this artifact meant to us that the tabernacle of David was found.

The following year we decided to visit Israel to discover the location or area where this piece might have been found. Therefore, when we first arrived in the land of Israel in 1987 the first place we went to was Jerusalem in order to investigate the mystery behind this inscription and to investigate the city.

There is an image (done by Broadman Supplies and copyrighted by Holman Bible Publishers in 1983) shows the difference between the structure of the tabernacle and the structure of Solomon's Temple. However, we were not looking for the Temple of Solomon on Mount Moriah because we knew it to have been destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Romans. Yet, we were looking for the Citadel or fortress which David took and called the City of David (2Sa:5:7-9; 1Ch:11:5-8), and later made a place there for the ark in the tabernacle of David (the House of Yahweh) on Mount Zion (2Sa:6:16-17; 1Ch:15:1), where it was prophesied at Am:9:11:"In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:" and the faithful will come there (Isa:16:5: And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.)   We sat down first before what is called Mount Zion because it is written at Psalms:87:2: "The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob." Then, we looked at the walls around the city call old Jerusalem, which did not extend around the place called mount Zion (place below to the right shows air view of the Jerusalem area from the Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary and copyrighted by MPS). In the Armenian Quarter, David's Tower and citadel are on the westside of the city on one of the high's points in the Old City next to the Jaffa Gate. The Mount of Zion was on the south-west side outside the Old City and had built upon it the Church of the Dormition near the Zion Gate. And also outside of the Old City near the Jewish Quarter and below the Mount Ophel (on the south-east side) is the City of David. But all we knew said that all three of these places are biblically the same location (2Sa:5:7-9; 1Ch:11:5-8; 2Sa:6:16-17; 1Ch:15:1), however presently they are different.    Isaiah 49:14-16 said that Zion should have walls around it.  Secondly, Zion should have a wilderness, waste places, and a desert (Isa:64:10, Isaiah 51:3). Third, Zion would be left alone (Isaiah 49:14-23). Fourth, the scripture which said "Zion which no man seeketh after", Jeremiah 30:17.  Fifth, the scripture which said Zion was said to be foresaken (Isaiah 62:11-12). Also, we verified that modern Jerusalem did have walls surrounding it, but the walls did not extend to the time of David and Solomon (Isa 62:6-8). Nor was it desolate or wasted (Isaiah 1:7, 3:8, 64:10, Jeremiah 6:8), until we return.  Neither was modern Jerusalem in a valley surrounded by mountains (Ps:125:2); and Mount Zion on the side of the north (Ps 48:2).  

So as a result of these discrepancies we started traveling through out all the land of Israel in search of Mount Zion and Jerusalem. That same year in July of 1987 Biblical Archaeology Review published an article concerning the Phoenician Israelite Broad-Room Temples found in Israel. In the article it stated that "the tenth-century B.C. temple from Arad is the only Israelite temple to the Hebrew god Yahweh ever recovered in an excavation." However we had no real evidence to show that the artifact and this place had anything to do with one another.

Nevertheless, in 1990 we did research on the location of Arad in books like 'The Harper Atlas of the Bible' (on the left) that showed a map done by Lane Ritmeyer on page 11 of the ancient site of Arad, twin temples, and the city walls. And on page 53 under the 'Temples in Palestine' section there was shown the holy of holies area in the Israelite temple at Arad. However because the previous discription of the site on page 11 had only the two twin temples in its diagram and did not mention any other temple at the site we concluded that these temples must have been what the previous articles had spoke about. Because this and the other reference (on the right) of Arad did not describe the dimentions of a citadel or fortress, as was said that David took on Mount Zion, we excluded Arad as a possibility. Yet, as you can see the two books that mentioned Tel Arad only spoke of the lower city and doesn't show that their was a citadel built on the upper hill there.

By our Biblical references we knew that the first thing that we were looking for the ruins of a tabernacle within a citadel. It was clear to us that the citadel was built on a long-room plan, and that the tabernacle was a broad-room plan.

First of all, this citadel should be forsaken, which no man seek after and left alone according to Isa:62:4: "Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married" and at Jer:30:17: "For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after." and Isa:49:21: "Then shalt thou say in thine heart, Who hath begotten me these, seeing I have lost my children, and am desolate, a captive, and removing to and fro? and who hath brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where had they been?"

Second, we looked for Millo as it is stated at 2Sa:5:9: "So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward." and also at 2Ch:32:5: "Also he strengthened himself, and built up all the wall that was broken, and raised it up to the towers, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance." According to the Smith's Bible Dictionary, Millo (meant 'filling') was an ancient Jebusite name of a part of the citadel of Jerusalem. And the Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary stated that this was "a mound or rampart built up and filled in with earth and stones to raise the level." "In Judges 9:6, 20 "the house of Millo" mentioned three times probably means the inhabitants of this tower or fortification." The fortification as shown in the image on the left (done by Broadman Supplies and copyrighted by Holman Bible Publishers in 1983) of the city of David with Millo at its gate.

Third, the breaches or benches of the wall of the house was another thing we looked for. Benches or breaches at ancient city gates are quite common, a rectangular structure near the towers or along the outer wall of the great towers (usually 4.5 meters long). This was where the elders of Israel used to sit and the Psalmist speaks of those "that sit in the gate" (Psalms 69:13). A good illustration is given in the Book of Ruth 4:1-2: "Then Boaz went up to the gate and sat down there and behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz had spoken came by; and he said to him... sit down here and he ... sat down... and he took ten men of the elders of the city and said 'sit ye down here' and they sat down." And also at Sodom where Lot sat at the gate of Sodom (Gen. 19:1). As for the tabernacle of David it was said at Am:9:11:"In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:"  

Fourth, another piece of geological evidence that we were looking for was the gutter that David and his soldiers went through in order to capture the Jebusite fortress of Zion. This is like the example on the right (done by the artists Irene Bates, Duncan Mackay, Rex Nichollas and Malcolm Swanston) from page 49 of 'The Harper Atlas of the Bible'. It is stated at 2Sa:5:8: "And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house."
 
Our earliest historical reference comes from the Book of Josephus in chapter 5 'The description of Jerusalem'; pg 552 which stated, "The city of Jerusalem was fortified with three walls, on such parts as were not encompassed with unpassable valleys; for in such places it had but one wall. The city was built upon two hills which are opposite to one another, and have a valley to divide them asunder; at which valley the corresponding rows of houses on both hills end. Of these hills, that which contains the upper city is much higher, and in length more direct. Accordingly, it was called the "Citadel," by king David; he was the father of that Solomon who built this temple at the first; but it is by us called the "Upper Market-place." But the other hill, which was called "Acra," and sustains the lower city, is of the shape of a moon when she is horned; over-against this was a third hill, but naturally lower than Acra, and parted formerly from the other by a broad valley."

Second, shown on the left, is a 17th century A.D. engraved map of the area of Jerusalem which substanciates Josephus description. (Map was not available for download sorry...)

Third, is our earliest map of the area (as shown on the above) is the first atlas of the Holy land by J. Ziegler entitled 'Quae intus continentur' from 1532 A.D. Which shows the Roman name Aelia Capitolina, in the land of Benjamin in the place of the 'Jubusite Jerusalem',Jerusalem surrounded by mountains (Ps ch 125:2)and Zion on the side of the north (Ps ch 48:2),1206 years later after Constantine had renamed the other 'Amorite Jerusalem' Jerusalem.

Geographic references state that Zion should be called a wilderness and a desert according to Isaiah 51:3: "For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody." and Isa:64:10: "Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation." Above is shown a map of the land of Israel divided according to it's desert, forest, and evergreen areas. From these it can be seen what is modernly the desert area of Israel. However Modern Jerusalem is located in the area of a forest.

Also, we were looking for a farmland environment that fit Jer:26:18: "Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountains of the house as the high places of a forest."

A Meteorological sign that would give us the correct areas to consider are those that fit Psalms:133:3: "As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore." Therefore the dew of Hermon would have to travel to this location on a normal basis. This could be identified in the areas of high annual dew amounts in Israel (as shown on the map to the right).


In 1997, we saw an article in the Chicago Jewish Star Newspaper that spoke of another fragment that mentioned the house of Yahweh and was dated to be older than the first we heard about 11 years earlier. Nevertheless, the article also did not mention where the piece was found. It was not until we did further research that year that we discovered the newly released artifact reported in the Nov. 1997 edition of Biblical Archaeology Review entitled 'Three Shekels for the Lord'.

The article spoke of an ancient inscription record of three shekels to the House of Yahweh which they supposed to be a reference of Solomon's Temple. And also just as the previously mentioned article in the Jewish Star the writer stated here that "no one knows where they were discovered-- or as least they're not talking." However, the piece by Hershel Shanks made mention that "..BYT YHWH had been found complete in only one extra-Biblical inscription, a faded ostracon from Arad with an obscure context,.." Finally, the location of the first artifact was revealed! So we decided to take a more careful look at information on Arad.

In May of 2001 Biblical Archaeology Review published an article by Ephraim Stern entitled 'Pagan Yahwism: The folk Religion of Ancient Israel' mentions the house at Arad and shows both a picture of the inner sanctuary and the House of Yahweh inscription next to one another. However the picture displayed of the site resembled a tabernacle, and not a temple structure. Also because the artifact beside it talked of this place being the House of Yahweh this could very well be the tabernacle of David. In addition, the article put up the thought that previous artifacts found like the ivory pomegranate (a priestly object) and three-shekel ostracon were referring to this place.

Also in the same edition of BAR on pg 34 in an article entitled 'Sacred Stones in the Desert' by Uzi Avner, again a picture of the holy of holies was shown with a picture of two artifacts with Ancient Hebrew written upon them. The article stated that "much evidence found at Arad, such as two potsherds inscribed with the names of the Israelite priestly families Pashur and Meremoth, prove that the temple is Israelite." these names were well known priest in the Tanach (Bible) which worked close to the house of Yahweh in the time of Erza and Nehemiah. However, another Pashur mentioned was also a priest in the house of Yahweh, but in the time of Jeremiah (according to Jer. 20). This information was unignorable for the fact that we now saw three artifacts found at the site which had simularities to things mentioned in the Bible around the Jerusalem area. It was then that it became clear that we would have to visit the site and determine for ourselves the truth of the matter of whether or not there was a citadel and the tabernacle of David on this site.
It wasn't until Janurary of 2002 through our internet research that we discovered a web page "The Temple Inscriptions" that we saw both the 'Three Shekel' and the other 'House of Yahweh' artifacts together. Yet on the page it again stressed the location of the second was found in Arad (Tel Arad) in Israel. We could no longer deny the necessarity of a trip to investigate the site personally.

While driving on the road on our way to the Tel Arad site, we couldn't help but notice from a distance the large structure that sat on the highest hill of the site. When we arrived at the gate, the National Park Authority provided us with a map of the site (on the left) that immediately caught our attention. Because in comparison to maps of the site that we had seen in books, this one had one addition to the site which was the large Israelite citadel. One of the maps given to us at the site was even done by Lane Ritmeyer, the same artist of the previous maps, however this map included in it the citadel (in the image on the right). The map also showed that the entire city was surrounded by walls as it is said that Jerusalem should be at (Isa 62:6-8), and also extended to the time of David and Solomon.

The Stronghold of Zion


On the site map was a detail map of what was called the Fortress (as shown on the below). This was the first sign to what we were looking for because the dimension of the citadel was a square or long-room structure facing in the east direction, with the sanctuary or tabernacle within it that appeared to be a broad-room (also facing the east). From the National Park gate we drove up the main road to the east side of the fortress on the site map and walked up the east stairs to the fortress.

The fortress had before it the second thing that we expected to see for Millo as it is stated at 2Sa:5:9: "So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward." and also at 2Ch:32:5: "Also he strengthened himself, and built up all the wall that was broken, and raised it up to the towers, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance." The two towers of the Tel Arad fortress was a good sign because in Judges 9:6, 20 "Millo" probably meant the inhabitants of the tower or fortification.

And as we came to the citadel we saw the third sign which we looked for, the breaches or benches of the wall of the house. Benches or breaches at ancient city gates are quite common, a rectangular structure near the towers or along the outer wall of the great towers (usually 4.5 meters long). This was where the elders of Israel used to sit and the Psalmist speaks of those "that sit in the gate" (Psalms 69:13). As for the tabernacle of David it was said at Am:9:11:"In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:" Therefore, here because they are common we saw them before the great gate which was the main breach and along the walls around the fortress. It was at this place that the people came to pray before the house. So we kissed the stone and made a prayer there before entering what we consider "holy ground".

We walked into the citadel following the path outlined by the provided map from the National Park and walked up to what was called the Hellenistic tower that was one of the heights of the site to get a good view of the lower area. The tabernacle was in the northwest corner of the citadel, and was built with the three level description of the Yard Gate (inner and outer court), door of the Sanctuary, and Holy of holies (for the ark of the covenant).
Outside of the holy of holies is the sanctuary area in which is the stone shewbread table that was in properly called the altar.



We preceeded on to walk the guided path of the map on down to south side of the citadel to one of the tower chambers over the wall of the fortress. Standing there was like standing in presence of David as he wept for his son in this biblically mention place. As written at 2Sa:18:24: "And David sat between the two gates: and the watchman went up to the roof over the gate unto the wall, and lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold a man running alone." and 2Sa:18:33: "And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!"

Right beside this and the rooms near the wall are the rooms that are for the priest. The captain of this citadel has been identified as Eliashib which reflects scriptures concerning the place of Eliashib. As written at Ne:3:20: "After him Baruch the son of Zabbai earnestly repaired the other piece, from the turning of the wall unto the door of the house of Eliashib the high priest." Ne:3:21: "After him repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah the son of Koz another piece, from the door of the house of Eliashib even to the end of the house of Eliashib." It was also interesting to us that Meremoth's name was mentioned as one of priest found written here. And here we were in the identified house of Eliashib that was written about.

The map took us along the wall over on to the west side of the citadel over the gutter area and outside the holy of holies. The gutter was the water channel that came out of the fortress. As we looked at the path leading through the fortress wall we saw a clear picture of David asking his men to go through this channel to get the Jebusites out of the fort. As written at 2Sa:5:8:"And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house." This was one of the signs that we were hoping to see in the citadel of David.

The path of the map continued us on to the inner court yard outside of the sanctuary. From outside it we viewed the court of the sanctuary and the holy of holies area. The storehouse or the inner court yard as written at Ex:40:8: "And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate." and also 1Ki:7:12: "And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the LORD, and for the porch of the house." and at Eze:8:16: "And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east."
As for the altar we observed that it was in its proper place and made of unhewned stones as commanded at Ex:20:25: "And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it."

Our next task after viewing all that the guided path had to offer we had to determine the exact dimentions to the sanctuary in order to see if it fit what was required for a tabernacle.




A holy of holies would only be used for the Ark of the testimony. As stated at 2Sa:6:17: "And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD." However the word tent is stated in 1Ch:16:1: "So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God." Later after this event the ark was moved from mount Zion to Mount Moriah in the temple that Solomon had built. As written in 1Ki:8:1: "Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion." Nevertheless, Solomon still considered the place on Mount Zion a holy place and built this place after finishing the temple. As stated at 2Ch:8:11: "And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh out of the city of David unto the house that he had built for her: for he said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the places are holy, whereunto the ark of the LORD hath come." Presently in this area we saw two incense altars (the right one larger than the left) and two setup stones one of which is raised equal to the other. It was by this that we know that this was a place setup to Yahweh Elohim (Allah-as-from). The setting up of these stones and altars was an ensign for future generations yet was looked upon at that time as an evil act by Eliashib. As noted at Ne:13:7: "And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God."


Plowed as a field


A Wilderness

When we arrived at Tel Arad in 2002 we found the place dry, desolate and in a clear wilderness-like environment. The location of the site was within the geographic & climatical environment that we had expected to find. As was said in Isaiah 51:3, Isaiah 49:21 and Isaiah 49:14-16, Zion should have a wilderness, waste places, and a desert. As we began to gather information we learned that the place was not a wilderness, but had became one. That fit with scriptures of how Jerusalem will be desolate and wasted Isaiah 1:7, 3:8, 64:10, Jeremiah 6:8, until we return. Also that Zion should have a wilderness, waste places, and a desert (Isa:64:10, Isaiah 51:3).

The Area Surrounded by Mountains

The second geographic identified thing that we notice was that the house of Yahweh (or water Citadel) sits at the highest part in the city at 2000 ft above sea level in the northern corner of an area surrounded by mountain ranges on all sides in what is called the Arad Becken. As said in Psalms:125:2: "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever." There are no other locations in Israel that fit this description as well as the area of Tel Arad does.
Nor was modern Jerusalem in a valley surround by mountains (Ps:125:2); and Mount Zion on the side of the north (Ps 48:2).  

The Morning Dew


Clouds, that come from the far north, descend upon the mountains (Har Amasa at around 2500 feet above sea level) down upon the lower land of Tel Arad and the Arad Becken (area surrounded by mountains) creating a cloud on the ground. Yet, at the top of Tel Arad in the house of Yahweh (at the time of the sun rise) one can see over the clouds so that it appears as if the mount and house is high in the sky. It is also this dew in the winter time that allows growth in the area of plant life.  

No man seeks


Fourth, the scripture which said "Zion which no man seeketh after", Jeremiah 30:17.

So now the scriptures which said "Zion which no man seeketh after", Jeremiah 30:17 and Jerusalem "a city sought out" Isaiah 62:11-12 becomes very plain to us and makes perfect sense because our people have refused the house of Yahweh. And therefore fulfilled Mal:3:7: "Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? Mal:3:8: Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Mal:3:9: Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Mal:3:10: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."  

Zion would be left alone (Isaiah 49:14-23). In ancient times the site was buried and left that way for centuries. The site was first discovered in 1968, however since the early 70's, or for the past thirty years, there has been no excavations upon the site. And the only ever discovered house of Yahweh in the land of Israel has been left unpromoted and to this day 80 percent of the site has been left unexcavated.

After inspecting the site, we attempted to get further information on the 'House of Yahweh' within Israel. One source we came across was a tour guide book entitled 'A Pilgram's companion to the Land of Abraham' by Yadin Roman of the Jewish Agency for the Negev Tourist Board and included information from the Beer Sheba Tourist Information, Arad Visitors' Center, Central Negev Tourist Information, and Northern Negev Tourism.

In the section of the book 'The Israelite temple at the Arad Fortress' it was stated on pg 41 that "In 1968, Yochanan Aharoni unearthed one of the most remarkable archaeological finds ever discovered in Israel: an Israelite temple in Arad. This find is unique; to this day, over thirty years later, no other Israelite temple has been found." On page 42 it was said that "the temple at Arad is the only Israelite temple ever found, it gives us an insight into Israelite worship and what Israelite temples looked like."

It also mention on page 41 that "From the epigraphic material found at Arad, we know of at least two priestly families that served in this temple, which was situated in a fortress at the edge of the desert, on the border of the kingdom of Judah. These two priestly families are mentioned both in letters found at Arad and in the Bible." The two priestly families mentioned here we clearly understood to have been Pashur and Meremoth that we had previously seen in the May 2001 Edition of the Biblical Archaeology Review magazine.

They also spoke of how similar the house was to that of the tabernacle of Moses on page 47 stating that " It is very similar to how the tabernacle in the desert looked." The image on the left shows page 45 of the book in which it has both the tabernacle of the citadel above and a drawing of the tabernacle of Moses below.

Also on page 47 it concluded by stating that the citadel was "a site where a series of strong fortresses were built on top of one another, starting with David or Solomon, right up to the Roman Period." From this final note we conclude that this was a tabernacle of David.  

Local Tour guides also helped to verify our results concerning the house of Yahweh. While we were celebrating the 2005 Feast of Tabernacles, a group of tour guides (whom show people the sites in the area), visiting the site, talked to us. The guides supported the 'cleverness' of the conclusion from our research that the House of Yahweh was in fact the city of David.

RESEARCH
The Archaeologist Perspective

This section is for further information on the House of Yahweh, and answers to questions relating to the site (Israelite fortress) that is not normally given to the general public. Found in the 60's and most excavations done in the 70's, the site has since been left buried . Yet, not 80% of the site has ever been excavated til today and only recently have archaeologist been allowed to excavate around the house of Yahweh at Tel Arad. Therefore, from the finds of the past and recent discoveries this section is constructed in order to bring answers to the mysteries of the house of Yahweh at Tel Arad.

In order to understand what the scholarly world's view on the site really was, we had to search for the perspective of the archaeologist on the job. In our investigation we found that Tel Arad has mystified archaeologist, religeous groups, and scholars for forty years ever since it's discovery by Yohanan Aharoni (The Chairman of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures and founder of the Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University). However one thing that we did find was that Aharoni after his excavation of the site wrote two books that he went into detail concerning his finds at the House of Yahweh. The first was 'The Archaeology of the land of Israel' and the second the 'Arad Inscriptions'.

The first season of excavation of the citadel mound took place in the spring of 1962. On page 1 of the 'Arad Inscriptions' Mr. Aharoni stated that "There can be no doubt that the shrine in the northwest corner of the Arad fortress had all the architectual elements of the Jerusalem temple and the Pentateuchal tabernacle: courtyard, vestibule, holy place, holy of holies, altar for burnt offerings, incense altars and even the orientation towards the sunrise." "But one thing should be obvious: the Levitical names in inscriptions found in or around the cultic structure leave no room for doubt that this was a Yahwistic place of worship." On page 229 of 'The Archaeology of the land of Israel' Aharoni stated that "The excavated temple is at Arad, within the royal fortress on the southeastern border of Solomon's kingdom. There is no doubt that this is an Israelite temple in the full meaning of that word, a house of Yahweh in biblical terms, not just a shrine built during the Israelite period."

And in 'The Archaeology of the land of Israel' on page 230 it was stated that "At Arad was found for the first time a king's sanctuary of that type, the like of which was surely to be found at the other royal border centers" On the same page he said that "The cultic artifacts of the Arad temple are basically identical, therefore, to those of the Solomonic Temple and of the Tabernacle.." Yet the details of this came on page 232 as it was stated that "The description of the Tabernacle is, therefore, a precise depiction of the Arad shrine in all of its details, including the measurements with one difference: in contrast to the broad room at Arad, the Tabernacle is described as a long room with its entrance on one of the short sides. It is probable that this detail influenced the Solomonic Temple, in the light of which the Tabernacle was now being viewed."
The fact that the site existed in the time of David, is the first king's sanctuary, and by dimensional structure considered a tabernacle were all very good signs from the leading archaeologist in the 60's. These points made a strong case to us that this was the Tabernacle of David. In addition, Mr. Aharoni stated on page 4 of the 'Arad Inscriptions' that "we have here a rich and unique treasure, that up to now has no equal in all of Eretz-Israel. Its importance lies not only in the variety of inscriptions-- including political, administrative, and religious documents -- but also in their varied dates. On the citadel mound of Arad, six fortresses from the period of the monarchy were unearthed, and on top of them were remains of fortresses from the Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, and early Arab periods." The times of the citadel's reconstruction showed clear collation with many biblical and historical sources. The citadel wasn't just at King David's and his son Solomon's time. But it existed through all of the kings of Judah til the fall to Babylon, and was rebuilt in the time of Nehemiah & Ezra (of the Persian Empire), the Maccabeans (which is the Hellenistic), and from Harod's to Josephus' time (of the Roman empire).

The fact that the citadel existed in the historian Flavius Josephus' time we consider very important. In the 'Arad Inscriptions' on page 4 Mr. Aharoni gives a description of the area of the upper hill citadel and the lower hill city, saying that "The citadel mound of Arad, where the ostraca were found, occupies the southeast edge of the ridge which, in the shape of a horseshoe, surrounds the Early Bronze Age city. A city wall was built along the watershed of the horseshoe and was continued across the open end so as to encircle the town completely." This description clearly described the description made by the Book of Josephus in chapter 5 'The description of Jerusalem'; pg 552 which stated, "The city was built upon two hills which are opposite to one another, and have a valley to divide them asunder; at which valley the corresponding rows of houses on both hills end. Of these hills, that which contains the upper city is much higher, and in length more direct. Accordingly, it was called the "Citadel," by king David; he was the father of that Solomon who built this temple at the first; but it is by us called the "Upper Market-place." But the other hill, which was called "Acra," and sustains the lower city, is of the shape of a moon when she is horned; over-against this was a third hill, but naturally lower than Acra, and parted formerly from the other by a broad valley." Because we saw that the Tel Arad lower hill site's description fit that of Josephus records of the Citadel of David we realize that this was just what we were looking for. T

Nevertheless, the tabernacle of David and citadel that we were looking for was said to have a water source coming from out of the citadel. All of the things that we had read from archaeologist only supported the idea that the water within this citadel was transported up from the lower city well. Most of the writings that we reviewed were at least 30 years old and it was said to us that the site was not 80 percent completely excavated. Therefore, in order for us to get an idea of current work being done with the site we had to go to the present archaeologist in charge of the site. Unfortunately, Aharoni died at the site in the mid 70's. However, there was an archaeologist that had been at the site for almost 10 years attempting to raise funding to continue excavations on and around the citadel, Professor Yehuda Goverin of the Beersheba University. At this point we believed that further excavation would prove that water in fact came from the Citadel to the lower city. We sat down with Professor Goverin and showed him our investigations. When Professor Goverin finally got approval and funding to begin digs on the site he investigated the water channel coming out of the westside of the citadel. He discovered that the water that came through the channel left marks that showed that its direction was clearly on a downward path toward the lower city rather than in the direction of the citadel. Therefore, he concluded that water must have come from out of the citadel. His findings verified what we had already suspected to be true. And this was also one of the signs that we expected to see in the Tabernacle of David.

After reading the words and hearing the conclusion of the archaeologist we still had to go to the root and source, which was the actual artifacts found on the site to understand the thought of our Israelite forefathers from their own words. And as was said by Aharoni in 'The Archaeology of the land of Israel', "The richest treasure of inscriptions was discovered at Arad"

Artifacts Found in the House of Yahweh



The final proof in our research of the House of Yahweh (the true mount Zion), in the place called Tel Arad, came from the words of our forefathers themselves that were written upon the artifacts discovered on the site. The artifacts displayed were all found within the house and mostly in the sanctuary or the holy of holies. Each one has it's own significance to statements made in the Torah and in the history of our people. From seeing these findings and others it is clear to see the fulfilment of the Torah realistically kept and recorded in history. The house of Yahweh was the center point for offerings required by God in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 12. And as Mr. Aharoni stated on pg. 121 of the 'Arad Inscriptions', that "Arad continued to serve as a collection point for the tithes even after the destruction of the sanctuary." The artifacts displayed below come from Yohanan Aharoni's book the 'Arad Inscriptions' and are the nineteen most important pieces that prove our point. The translations are provided within the book, nevertheless the text of the artifacts were re-examined by the Amariel Family.
  1. Ancient Hebrew name of Jehovah and the House of Yahweh written in Hebrew  
  2. Stone inscription found at Tel Arad in the early Israelite period in Ancient Hebrew (hieroglyphic Hebrew) (Ex:20:24: An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.)


Among the artifacts found at the house of Yahweh was inscription 18 (on the bottom left). It was this original artifact that we first encountered that led us on our journey. However the one we first saw did not have the second additional piece to it that completed the letter.

The piece is a letter that calls that place the house of Yahweh that an individual name Eliashib dwelled there. And as it is stated at De:12:4: "Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God. De:12:5: But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: De:12:6: And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: De:12:7: And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee." The famous house of Yahweh inscription begins with greetings to the head of the house at the time of Eliashib and talks of sending of offerings and ends giving peace to him and the house of Yahweh that he dwells (Deut.12:5).

The inscription 16 (on the right) is from Tel Arad and concerns Hananiah who sent offerings to the house of Eliashib and blessed him in the name of Yahweh. This piece shows that this house was dedicated to Yahweh and the handling of tithes (Deut. 12). It is also clear from these inscriptions that the house was blessed of Yahweh. And on the left is inscription 21 which stated that Jucal sent offerings and blessings to Gedaliah at this citadel and spoke of their master Yahweh. These two were also biblically known people mentioned in Jer:38:1: "Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken unto all the people," This shows that this same Gedaliah was mentioned in inscription 21 and received offerings from Jucal at the House of Yahweh.
The Priestly line
Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who was also chief governor in the house of the LORD (Yahweh), heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.") This Pashur was also the father of Gedaliah (Jer:38:1) and it seems that this Gedaliah mentioned with Jucal in Jeremiah are the same individuals in inscription 21 (above), especially considering that the time periods reasonably coincides with one another. With that in mind, in addition to the dating in Jeremiah's time and number of inscriptions found, we concluded that the Pashur who was appointed over the house of Yahweh must have been the same person mentioned within the House of Yahweh at Tel Arad.


The other artifact that we had seen before in Biblical Archaeology Review, Inscription 50 (left) also bears the name of Meremoth (mentioned in Erza 8:33). This priest was mentioned in the Tanach (Bible) which worked close to the house of Yahweh in the time of Erza and Nehemiah.

Israelite Offerings

As we translated the artifacts found at the house we discovered that most were written upon pottery for offerings found within the sanctuary of the tabernacle and the holy of holies. The tithes and offerings spoken of in the law that should be brought to the place that Yahweh has chosen. Most of the pieces found on the site are broken from pottery jars of offerings of wheat, wine, pine, and etc. brought there according to the law (Deut. 12). It was without doubt that the inhabitants of the citadel were halachic and very traditioned in the word of the Torah.

One inscription written upon it had the word 'half'. For half to be written upon an offering jar coincides with the law stated at Nu:15:10: "And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD." and also Nu:28:14: "And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a bullock, and the third part of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth part of an hin unto a lamb: this is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year." Wine was a major offering brought to this house according to artifacts found and according to the law it was commanded bring with the other offerings each month to the House of Yahweh.

Another inscription had written upon it the word 'Holy'. The parts set aside for the sons of Aaron was from offerings marked with this writing. As stated at Nu:18:9: "This shall be thine of the most holy things, reserved from the fire: every oblation of theirs, every meat offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every trespass offering of theirs, which they shall render unto me, shall be most holy for thee and for thy sons. Nu:18:10: In the most holy place shalt thou eat it; every male shall eat it: it shall be holy unto thee."

However, only certain items and offerings were marked to be holy in the sanctuary and one was the anointing oil. According to Ex:30:31: " And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations. Ex:40:9: And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

Offerings from the Nations
Besides the many other offerings sent to this tabernacle from Israelites in the time of the kingdom of Judah, there were also offerings sent to this place from considerably far locations, northward til Gomer to those southward til the people of Ham. Inscription 40 states the sons of Gomer sent their blessings with an offering to the house. And they are foretold to come back into the land in Eze:38:6: "Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee." Also shown on the right is Inscription 11 that states that people from Ham sent wine to this house. In addition to this piece are inscriptions 5 & 31 which mentioned Ham as sending bread.
The Captains of the Citadel

Who was this Eliashib? He was identified in inscriptions 17 (on the left) and various seals (inscriptions 105-107) as the son of Eshiyahu or Ashyahu. And in inscription 51 on the left Eshiyahu or Ashyahu is written to be the son of Ezer and was mentioned in Neh 3:19 as the son of Joshua the captain of the citadel in Hebrew. As stated Ne:3:19: "And next to him repaired Ezer the son of Jeshua, the ruler of Mizpah (citadel), another piece over against the going up to the armoury at the turning of the wall. Ne:3:20: After him Baruch the son of Zabbai earnestly repaired the other piece, from the turning of the wall unto the door of the house of Eliashib the high priest." In addition, the room of Eliashib's house have been indentified in the citadel of the House of Yahweh at Tel Arad.
However the most important thing that we discovered by examining the artifacts concerning Eliashib and his father, who's name is Eshiyahu or Ashiyahu, was our comparison of this with the oldest inscription found that mentioned the House of Yahweh. The man mentioned was named Ashiyahu and was only a generation or so before that of Eliashib of the House of Yahweh are Tel Arad. The fact that we had found several writings that called Eliashib the son of Ashiyahu. These two artifacts are both mentioning the House of Yahweh; the oldest mentioning the name of the father (Ashiyahu), and the latter mentioning the name of the son (Eliashib). We have concluded that both of these artifacts are referring to the priestly family of the captain of the citadel at the House of Yahweh and have found this to be the Tabernacle of David.

The Search for Mount Zion and a call to raise the Tabernacle of David
In continuing our investigations of the site and the surrounding area, we visited the local Israeli libraries to gather information concerning every aspect of the area. We talked to the local Jewish and beduoin that live in the area about the House of Yahweh at Tel Arad. Both groups agreed with our findings. The team was later joined by Aaron Rice, our archaeologist from the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer Research Team that confirmed the conclusions of our research. Finally, the Prayer team was then called in to begin prayers on the site. They consist of men that we refer to as Prayer Warriors, who take a prayer watch at the appointed prayer times of the day and night. The prayer times are Dawn, Morning, Noon, Evening, and Midnight (refer to the Prayer Area). The Prayer Team (each of whom has one of the prayer times each day) prays on the site in order to observe whether those prayers are answered, how quickly, and any other occurrences that take place upon the site during their prayers. However, one of the problems that we had with this procedure was that the site was not accessible in the early dawn, evening, and midnight. Also only one of our Prayer Warriors were able to commit himself to the 270 days that were necessary, Yirmeyah Amariel. Yet this issue was solved by the voluntary efforts of the Research Team to become the Prayer Team. Nevertheless, we could not resolve the problem of gaining access to the site at the right times.

In the mean time, we proclaimed to the K.O.Y (and others in the land) that the Sabbath year had come and proclaimed to their princes that we found the house of Yahweh. We also spoke with Elhanan of the K.O.Y after his son was the first of our people killed as a victim of terrorist. The Spirit led us to say to him that this would be the main reason they would receive status. So at the Passover we acquired a lamb and sacrificed it upon the altar of the House of Yahweh and then for the Feast of Unleavened Bread went into the wilderness in the east to pray. As written in Ho:5:15: "I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early." But by the blessing of God our prayers were answered, afterward, on the 8th day as we presented ourselves at the House of Yahweh. There we met and spoke with the resident archaeologist of the site, Yehuda Goverin, and made a deal with him to voluntarally become the day and night watchmen upon the site for its security. Our job was in taking daily entry fees, keeping the account of financial records, securing the site, and in public promotions with the hope in doing archeological digging, and restoration of the ancient Tel Arad site. So our prayers were answered in that we then had a solution that would allow us to pray on the site at the appointed times. However, all of this took place in the mist of the Israeli government threatening to evict the Dimona community from their homes. Nevertheless, after Mr. Goverin had consulted with the National Park Authority we were approved and were given the keys to the gate surrounding the site. Therefore, we became known as the Watchmen and began praying 5 times daily on the walls of the city for 270 days. Our group of 5 men consisted of Brother Howshua, Eri, Dawneeyale, Yeshiyah, Yirmeyah (all representatives for the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer Organization) that handled the job. This we took as one of the signs that God had blessed and allowed these events to take place. For as it is written in Psalms:84:10: "For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness." So we formed objectives to pray-for, while on the site, and signs to watch-for in order to determine if we were heard by God.

First, we were to pray for the 270 days on the behalf of the Dimona community to receive status after they had been attempting to get status for 35 years.
Second, we were to pray for 270 days and it was said if we were on the right track we would be removed from prayer afterward, according to prophecy.
We were to translate the ancient Hebrew Torah at the site within the 270 days.
And finally, we would obtain a place on Mount Ephraim to inform people of the House of Yahweh and to make a call to raise the Tabernacle of David.

After we were given the keys to the gate of Tel Arad and put in control as the watchmen. We saw that many people didn't realize the significance of the House of Yahweh. There were also many that walked carelessly into the sanctuary and treated the place with much disrespect. This was unlike what was done for other holy places along the Salt sea. In our time at the gate of Tel Arad we decided to advise and make changes, and wrote up a Proposal to Promote the House of Yahweh that was submitted to the National Park Authority. The NPA was advised to restrict entry to the sanctuary for the purpose to prevent desecration and preserve the site. And it was also stated that it would be more beneficial to the National Park to begin promoting Tel Arad not as a Canaanite city but for what it was an Israelite city and put focus on the house of Yahweh. We then, closed off the sanctuary area so that not just anyone could walk into the place without understanding that it is a holy area. This was simular to what was done for a synagogue down near the Salt Sea.

By the end of our 270 days of prayers the two most important signs of the answers to our prayers were fulfilled. Within the days the Dimona community were given the permanent status as we predicted. Also the National Park later removed the closed sanctuary sign, allowed people to enter into the sanctuary and holy of Holies, and requested that we leave from the site. So the National Park sent us a letter that required us to leave the park exactly on the 270th day. After we had witnessed these two things come to happen it was clear that our prayer at the site and in the citadel had a real effect. In the time that we prayed on the site, we watched our people's situation (in this land) change from BAD to some of the best since they arrived in Israel. In addition we have heard a considerable number of people attest to the site being very spiritual without knowledge of where they were. The Prayer Team thus determined that the House of Yahweh at Tel Arad had powerful forces working upon it and that if our people were to make prayers of atonement, forgiveness, and thanksgiving at the place great things could happen.

In conclusion, the result of our 20 year investigation is that we found that there were two Jerusalems:  One in the land of the Amorites and the other in the land of the Jebusites where we found Mount Zion to be in the land that is called Israel, it's called a wilderness and desolate as the scriptures foretold and the Tabernacle of David is in ruins.  Therefore, since the last Sabbath year and the last Year of Tithes, we have constantly putting forth the call to our people in the lands of the North to return and seek Yahweh Allah.

After all of this, the Brothers Howshua and Yeshiyah move to mount Ephraim. From there they sent out letters to the Hebrew Israelite brothers of the surrounding areas and also sent 150 letters to Hebrew Israelite camps throughout the world in order to inform them to come and help them in prayer and in our investigations.
Since then it has been our job to promote and advertise the site over the given Medias. Therefore, some of our team used the web to publish information on the house of Yahweh. We released information and gave updates over the web to people interested in coming to see the House. And in 2003, Watchmen Productions (which is in association with Amariel Family Entertainment) put together a hour long still-picture film entitled "Zion" that was aired in the United States on Can TV. In addition, we sent letters and continuously appealed to the leaders of the house of Israel to bring the people to the house of Yahweh to glorify the holy name Yahweh Allah.

We (The Brothers of the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer) plead to all Hebrew Yisraelites to check, double check, and triple check everything that has been given or told to us in these last days, and reach your on conclusions (according to scriptures.)  Those that have not forgotten Yahweh and His holy mountain (Isa. 65:11), but desire to seek him as we do contact us
The Word of Yahweh instruct his people to seek His face and his truth, Isa. 31:6 "For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto Yahweh our Eloah", Jer 30:17. But to seek forth for Mount Zion (Jer. 50:4-6.)  As it is written in Isa:53:1: "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?"

TEL ARAD, AN AREA WITH SPIRITUAL CLUES FROM YAHWEH, FOR THE BELIEVERS OF YAHWEH

For those who love Yahweh and the family name, called, House of Yahweh, the information presented not only confirms that the Name “House of Yahweh” is the family name where Yahweh established His Name, but that the True Believers of Yahweh, will be called by this Name also in these last days. These findings confirm that there was a House of Yahweh and this is what the tabernacle where Yahweh dwelt is called. It provides information that the people of Yahweh brought their tithes to the House of Yahweh. It shows that Yahweh has a place for you in His Priesthood, called House of Yahweh.

Other interesting facts about this place in the Negev. When the author was leaving he noticed next to this city, a field that had a row of rocks that prevented cars from being driven off the path that was established. I was told that religious orthordox believers come from all over the land of Israel in the spring to take pictures of the blue flowers that grow only in this place, and nowhere else in the land of Israel. Now these blue flowers are next to the city and the House of Yahweh. This should bring to remembrance a law of Yahweh.

Numbers 15:38 “Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders, a ribband of blue.”

It is possible that the blue dye necessary for the fringes or tzit-tzits came from this blue flower, which is located next to the House of Yahweh?

Also when arriving into the city of Tel Arad by foot, the editor noticed a large bird landing at this  site. When told to Howshua Ameriel of this magnificent bird, who the editor thought was a crane of some sort, I was told that it was a stork and that they migrate here every year, and have been for thousands of years. Also while in the city, there is a well and in the well the editor saw birds inside the well sitting on the walls of the rocks that lined the well. The editor was told that they were turtledoves which also live in this barren place, and had also been here for thousands of years. This brought another scripture to my mind.

Yeremyah 8:7 “Yes, the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times; and the turtledove, the crane, and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people don’t know the judgment of Yahweh.”

Here is the well in the city below the House of Yahweh in Tel Arad, that the author took pictures of.
Here is the inside of the well, with the turtle doves sitting on the rocks.


The editor is convinced Yahweh revealed these clues to him, which is more evidence that this is a House of Yahweh, the only excavated one in the land of Yahweh. These clues provide more facts to the true believers of Yahweh, that Yahweh’s House did exist, in what the scriptures calls “The House of Yahweh.” I don’t believe in coincidences, but that Yahweh revealed this to the editor, for you, as a witness and testimony, so that we can believe the prophecies concerning the establishment of the House of Yahweh in these last days, and that Yahweh’s prophecies are true and to be believed. Knowing that we have an ancient House of Yahweh, should convince all true believers of the true House of Yahweh in these last days where we can bring forth the truth of His Laws and His Son, to gather all nations.

Here are other pictures of the House of Yahweh that was taken by the editor:

The incense tables at the entrance to the Holy of Holies.
A view of the House of Yahweh from the southwest side down in the lower city.
Inside the House of Yahweh, I took a picture of the wall not realizing that there was some ancient drawings on the wall, because it was dark inside and my flash revealed this drawing.
The sacrificial altar at the House of Yahweh, exact measurement according to the Law, horns are missing.
Overhead view of the House of Yahweh and the city called David by Archeologist/Rabbi Howshua Amariel.
The water shaft that is described in II Samuyl 5:8 coming out of the House of Yahweh and leading into the city below, where David’s soldiers captured the city?
An article of the House of Yahweh in Tel Arad, where the name of Yahweh was found on ostraca.

One has to remember that the House of Yahweh in Tel Arad and it’s history has been hidden from the world. Concerning it’s importance, which is only for the believers to know and understand, it should be considered as one of the most important religious, archaeological, finds in this modern era for the true believers. The Israeli Authorities call this place an ancient Canaanite Fortress, but the land was dotted with Canaanite sites. The true believers of Yahweh know that this land was given to Abraham by Yahweh and this city which is located only 19 miles due west of Beersheva, and 17 miles due south of Hebron, is located where Abraham and the Patriarchs lived and worshiped Yahweh. Yahweh has kept Tel Arad and it’s treasures concealed from the world until this time period we live in now. Yahweh has revealed this to you so that you can believe what is written is true about the family name, House of Yahweh.

THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH, A SPIRITUAL HOUSE STARTED BY YAHSHUA MESSIAH

Yahweh has told us in no uncertain terms that He has chosen a place to put His Name. So where is it in these last days? And what is it? And who is it? Yahweh answers these questions for us, so that we can know the truth.

II Corinthians 5:1,2 “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of Yahweh, a House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven.”

I Corinthians 3:16,17Do you not understand that you are the House of Yahweh and that the Spirit of Yahweh dwells in you? If anyone defiles the House of Yahweh, Yahweh will destroy him. For the House of Yahweh is holy, which you are.”

I Corinthians 6:19,20 “Or do you not know that your body is the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit in you, which you have from Yahweh, and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price; therefore, glorify Yahweh in your body and in your spirit, which are Yahweh’s.”

I Timayah (Timothy) 2:19 “Nevertheless, the foundation of Yahweh stands sure, having this seal: Yahweh knows those who are His, because: everyone who names the Name of Yahweh departs from iniquity.”

So we can see from the above scriptures that Yahweh has placed His Name in us. We Name ourselves House of Yahweh, being called out by Yahweh, departing from sin, and converting to righteousness. When we do this, we are called a House of Yahweh! The House of Yahweh is Holy, that is, if the spirit of Yahweh dwells in you! For those who think in the flesh, look for fleshly things. But those who have the spirit of Yahweh look for spiritual blessings and for a House that is not built with hands. Our bodies were built by Yahweh and not with any human hands. This is the wonder of Yahweh’s creation. Yahweh wants worship from us and to worship Him. He wants us to perfect ourselves by seeking Him. A building that is built with hands, doesn’t impress Yahweh, nor does He need it for worship, nor do we need it to find Yahweh. People feel secure entering a building to worship Yahweh, maybe because it does keep them out of the elements and it gives people a place to come together. But Yahweh has never asked for a building to worship Him and those who think that Yahweh dwells in buildings, have no understanding of what the Apostle Shaul was revealing to us in the Holy Scriptures, concerning the flesh and the spirit. From the House of Yahweh in Egypt, to the tabernacle in the wilderness, to the House that Solomon built, all those buildings were representing the pattern of a true House, our bodies. Yahweh is the father of the living, not the dead. We cannot find one scripture where Yahshua Messiah built a building to worship Yahweh. If this was so necessary to worship Yahweh, don’t you think Yahweh would have inspired Yahshua to build one? Of course we know he built His House of Yahweh, but it was within Him, not a physical building. Now I am not condemning people who build buildings for people to fellowship and worship Yahweh in. What I am saying is don’t fool yourself and think that the building you enter to worship Yahweh, is somehow Holy and Yahweh dwells in a physical building made from rocks, metal, wood or any other material. Because the first thing you would have to answer is: is it made according to the pattern shown on the mountain? Is it made according to all the specifications/blueprints shown in the scriptures? If not, then how could it be a physical House of Yahweh?

Yahweh through His Son, Yahshua Messiah, has revealed to us the true House of Yahweh. In these last days, he has given us His Name once again! The House of Yahweh! It was revealed to us by someone He chose to bring forth the order of Melchizedek, called the House of Yahweh. This order is for all those who depart from iniquity! Have you departed from iniquity? If so, then join Yahweh by perfecting your House and place His Son in your heart and mind, so you can be called the House of Yahweh! Take Yahweh’s Laws, which bring judgment, and allow them to judge you! Prove yourself worthy to be called with the wonderful and awesome Name of the Most High, Yahweh! Bring forth fruits befitting repentance. We were given a Holy Calling, and there are some who will take another man’s liberty if you allow them. Give attention to prayer and study.

YAHSHUA MESSIAH THE FIRST OF THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK

Yahshua Messiah was the first born of many who are called the House of Yahweh or family of Yahweh.

Romans 8:29 “For whom he did foreknow, he also did appoint beforehand, to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.”

So what was Yahshua the firstborn of?

Hebrews 7:17 “For He testifies, you are a Priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.

The Order of Melchizedek is an arrangement or position of Yahweh’s Priesthood. Yahshua was the first to enter this House of Yahweh, of this Priestly order. He was the first Priest to enter into the family of Yahweh as a Son of Yahweh. He was, the first of many called, House of Yahweh, because He had the spirit of Yahweh in Him. He did not receive this position until he died and was resurrected. The House of Yahweh is a family of Priests who rule as Yahweh rules. When one understands the arrangement of the House, they understand Yahshua Messiah, who was the example of a living House of Yahweh, is the Head of this House, under the Head of this family, Yahweh. The Law directs us to Messiah, and the order of Messiah, called Melchizedek. This order is an arrangement of Yahweh, called a Holy Priesthood. He sets His House in order! Anyone who has had the opportunity to be a part of a family, understands the importance of a family unit with the father being the head of the family. They understand the importance of headship within a family and that the family is ruled from the top down. The father, mother, son, and the rest of the children in unity with Yahweh, brings about peace and abundant joy in this family lifestyle. Yahweh is our father, the Torah is our Mother and Yahshua is our brother/teacher. What more could we want in a family?

The order of Melchizedek is a blessing and gift from Yahweh.

Exodus 19:5,6Now therefore, if you will truly obey My voice and Keep My Covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation. These are the words you shall speak to the children of Israyl.”

I Kepha (Peter) 2:4 “Coming to Him as to a living stone, indeed rejected by men, but chosen by Yahweh, and precious, You also, as living stones, are being built up into a Spiritual House, a Holy Priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to Yahweh by Yahshua Messiah.”

The order of Melchizedek is not a person, but was a person of an order of the Priesthood called Melchizedek by which Holy Men enter to become Priests to Yahweh. This order is being built into a Priestly Kingdom, where Yahweh is the Head over this family. He has placed His Son, Yahshua Messiah, as the Head over the family of these Priests, who has qualified Himself as the firstborn into this family, called “House of Yahweh.” We are given this same opportunity to be a part of this family.

Hebrews 6:20; 7:1-4 “Where the Forerunner has entered for us: Yahshua, made and having become High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. For this Melchizedek (which is an order), king of Salem, priest of the most high, Yahweh, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him. To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is King of Peace; (this order) without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of Yahweh; abides as a Priest continually. Now consider how great this order is, unto whom event the Patriarch Abraham gave the tentht of the spoils.”

Romans 7:24 “But this order, because this same order continues forever, has an unchangeable Priesthood.

WHERE IS THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH?

So where do we go to find the House of Yahweh? Is it in a physical location? As we have read in this study, Yahweh has proven that he did have a place of worship and it had to be built according to the specification, plans, and blueprints that Yahweh ordained in His Law. But it is now, just an ancient landmark. So do we go there in Israel to find the House of Yahweh. In these last days there is a church outside of Abilene, Texas called the House of Yahweh. So do we go there to find the House of Yahweh? Does Yahweh want us to go to a Christian Church? Yahshua Messiah answered these questions when he was given the same examples.

Yahchanan 4:19-24 “The woman said to Him; Man, I see that you are a Prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain (Mount Gerizim), but you say that in Yerusalem (Mount Moriah) is the place where men ought to worship. Yahshua said to her; Woman, believe me: The hour comes when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain, nor even at Yerusalem. You do not know what you worship; we know what we worship, for salvation is from those who worship Yahweh. But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks just such worshipers to worship Him. Yahweh is a Spirit; and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Yahshua Messiah told us that the time would come and now is, where Yahweh would no longer be worshiped at any mountain or House of Yahweh that was built with hands. So we don’t have to travel to Tel Arad, or Abilene, Texas nor any particular place to worship Yahweh. We worship Yahweh in the present state, in our body, by our examples and through the faith. Now I am not saying that we should not gather together to worship Yahweh at the commanded Feasts as He states in the Law. But to say we have to be in one particular place and that is the only place where Yahweh is going to be, would be going against what Yahshua taught us. There is no House of Yahweh on earth at this time, built with hands, that could please Yahweh. If there is or was, it would have to follow the pattern of the blueprints that Yahweh gave in it’s construction. At this time, there is no physical building, built according to the law. Think on this, when Yahshua was on earth, not even He could enter the Temples inner courts! Because he was not a Levite! He could go into the outer courts, like every other tribe, but He was not allowed to go into the inner court of the Holy and Most Holy Place where Yahweh dwells. Now if He is the son of Yahweh, why wasn’t He allowed to enter? Does that mean because He didn’t, that He was not a son of Yahweh or a Priest of Yahweh? If Yahweh dwells in a particular place which in Yahshua’s day, was Yerusalem, at what is called the Temple Mount, did Yahshua have authority to teach and preach the message of Yahweh? Did He have Holy Spirit? He didn’t serve in the Priesthood in Yerusalem! Not the physical Levite Priesthood. But He did have authority, and that authority came from Yahweh, not from men, or from a physical building.

Now think on this, where did the Apostles followers go and worship Yahweh when the House of Yahweh was destroyed in 70 C.E.? If worship required a physical building, one location, then how could and did they worship Yahweh? The brethren were scattered throughout Asia. If is a fact that the Apostle Shaul did not come to Yerusalem 3 times a year, every year! When we think in the flesh, we are limited to the flesh. When we think in the Spirit, we have no limitations! Yahweh is a Spirit and he has no limitations. He is free to travel and do whatever He desires according to His law. If we are limited to go to only one particular place to worship Yahweh, then what does a believer do when they don’t have the finances to travel to one particular place to keep the Feast? Does that mean that they are not worshiping Yahweh? I have seen believers in the Philippines who have no way of ever financially being able to travel to America to worship Yahweh, if Yahweh was only limited to being in America! So does that mean they can’t keep the Feasts of Yahweh, if we limit Yahweh to one place by our own limitations? Even when Yahshua was talking to the woman of Samaria, He acknowledged that there was at least two places that Yahweh was being worshiped in His day! He also stated that the time was coming where Yahweh wouldn’t be worshiped at neither place.

As you have seen in this study, in these extreme last days, Yahweh has revealed the Name of His family, called House of Yahweh. This name was revealed to us, the body of believers by a man named Jacob Hawkins under inspiration of understanding the prophecy. This was revealed to Him in order for us to know what the family name is called. Yahweh’s Name, House of Yahweh, was given to Yahshua Messiah first, who founded the first House of Yahweh in the last days, and from this first House, we now know what family we belong to and what we are to be called.

Ephesians 3:14,15 “For this reason, I bow my knees to Yahweh, the Father of our King, Yahshua Messiah. From whom the whole family in heaven and earth is Named: the family name Yahweh.

II Timayah (Timothy) 2:19 “Nevertheless, the foundation of Yahweh stands sure, having this seal: Yahweh knows those who are His, because: everyone who names the Name of Yahweh departs from iniquity.”

Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the Name of Yahweh, will be saved.”

Mattithyah 18:20For where two or three or gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

When two or three gather together to worship Yahweh, then they are a House of Yahweh gathered! At this time Yahweh has not called us to one place yet! We must prepare for that day.

The Name, House of Yahweh, belongs to Yahweh and his children, those whom Yahweh calls into the knowledge of the Truth, through His Spirit. It is not reserved for one person, or one group to say we are the House of Yahweh and you are not. Yahweh is the only one who has that authority!

I Yahchanan (John) 5:18-21 “We know that whoever is born of Yahweh does not sin; but he who has been begotten of Yahweh keeps himself, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we belong to Yahweh, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. And we know that the Son of Yahweh has come, and has given us an understanding in order that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, for we are in His Son, Yahshua Messiah. Yahweh is the true Father, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from the defilement of gods.”

Now within the body of believers, called the House of Yahweh, there are many offices and officeholders. These offices are for the building of the body.

Ephesians 4:11- 13 “And He gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some teachers of the message, and some pastors and instructors: For the perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the ministry, for the building of body of Messiah (House of Yahweh). Until we all come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of Yahweh, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness; of Messiah.”

We must come into unity of the Law, and the knowledge of Yahshua Messiah, which the Law reveals to those who understand the Law. We are being perfected through the judgment of Yahweh’s Law, in order to come into an understanding of Yahweh’s Son. When we come into the understanding of Yahshua Messiah, we become a Son of Yahweh, just as He become a Son of Yahweh. The knowledge of Yahshua, is knowing that we must do the following:
  • Keep yourselves from the defilement of gods
  • Be named by the name of Yahweh, being called House of Yahweh
  • Depart from sin and iniquity
  • Come into a unity of the faith
  • Do the work of Yahweh



Let’s consider these things of understanding and look to the scriptures for their meaning.

HOUSE OF YAHWEH, KEEP YOURSELVES FROM THE DEFILEMENT OF GODS!

We can defile ourselves by what teachings we place in our hearts and minds and even by the abominations that we set in our house. When Yahweh had a place to worship Him, they were also warned not to set idols in the place that they worshiped Yahweh at. At the present time, the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas has committed an abomination to Yahweh. Since they carry the family name, this must be addressed, as we are those who protects the family name, House of Yahweh.

Yeremyah 32:34 “But they set their abominations in the House, which is called by My Name, to defile it.”

Exodus 20:4-6 “You shall not make for yourself any carved image; in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them nor serve them; for I, Yahweh your mighty one, am a jealous heavenly Father, punishing the children for the lawbreaking of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me. But showing love to thousands who love Me, and keep my commandments.”


Notice the white buffalo behind Yisrayl Hawkins. This is set up in their church, called the House of Yahweh, on the stage behind their pulpit, as an image, that they believe represents their leader, Yisrayl Hawkins. Now why would anyone want to have a creation of Yahweh in a place of worship for Yahweh, which symbolizes the man they worship? What kind of message does this bring to the masses who worship Yahweh there? How does this painting of a white buffalo, give honor to Yahweh? There is no example of any animals or idols being placed in the Tent of Meeting, the tabernacle of David, or the House of Yahweh, anywhere in the scriptures. In fact we are warned of this abomination in Yahweh’s law.

Exodus 20:4You shall not make for yourself any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in earth beneath, of that is in the water under the earth: You shall not bow down to them, nor serve them: for I, Yahweh your mighty one, am a jealous mighty one...”

THE WHITE BUFFALO

When you enter the gates of the House of Yahweh in Clyde, Texas the idol that represents Yisrayl Hawkins is there for all to see. It even has a plaque under it which states that Yisrayl Hawkins is represented by a white buffalo, and he was hidden, or the hidden one.


Romans 1:21-25 “Because that, when they knew Yahweh, they did not glorify Him as Father, nor were thankful, but became idolatrous; in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools; and exchanged the glory of the uncorruptible Father for images, made to resemble corruptible man, and birds, four footed beasts, and creeping things. Therefore Yahweh gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own bodies between themselves: Who exchanged the truth of Yahweh into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. HalleluYahweh!”

HIDDEN IN A NAME

Here is a picture of the plaque that is next to this white buffalo we find on the House of Yahweh grounds:


Hidden in a name:
Sermon tape 10/2/99 the english word or name "buffalo" actually traces back to a hebrew word written in the holy scriptures in the Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon by Julius Furst, page 1454 shows that in the original Hebrew holy scriptures, the Hebrew word ta and its derivitave means "wild ox" or "buffalo". This same hebrew word ta, which Dr. Furst shows to mean buffalo, is also shown listed on page 1641 vol 2 of Hebrew Aramaic English Dictionary by Marcus Jastrow which shows this word also means "Yahash, has been kept hidden in the compartments of the House of Yahweh". Most people would either ignore this or they would study this no further but there is more to find so the study has to continue.
The name Yahash which Dr. Jastrow says is part of the meaning of the same Hebrew word, ta which Dr. Furst said was translated buffalo, from the scriptures, is listed on page 375 of the Lexicon in Vestris Testamante Libros by Kohler and Bumgaurtner which shows this word or name, is a compound word which combines the name, Yah the syllabilic form of the name of Yahweh, and the hebrew word owash, that became the second part of the name Yahash, is listed on page 691 Lexicon and Vestris Testamante Libros by Kohler and Baumgartner which shows this word means: to restore. So what the hebrew word, which is translated buffalo, actually means (faded words unreadable) Yahweh hid him in order restore the House of Yahweh. Buffalo Bill Hawkins......bibliography as above
If one was searching the computers and the heavens to locate the last days witness one would not be looking for the name Buffalo Bill Hawkins...Yahweh hid him in order to restore the House of Yahweh.

Yisrayl Hawkins is the hidden one, by his statements on this plague. But are we to follow the hidden one? Does not Yahweh say that everything done in secret, will be revealed. Is not Babylon called the Mystery or Hidden religion? Yahshua even stated that you do not know who you worship, but we do! So does the congregation of the House of Yisrayl know who they are worshipping. As an eye witness to their worship of a man, the editor was there at the Feast of Unleavened Bread and at the last day of the Feast 2010, and witnessed the Elders fall down and worship Yisrayl Hawkins. They prostrated themselves going up and down while on their knees, with their arms outstretched and hands lifted high. This went on for at least 30 seconds and Yisrayl Hawkins fell to his knees and worshipped back to them and to the audience. Is this what Yahweh really wants from the body of believers? Is this the form of worship that Yahshua wants? I did not see Yisrayl Hawkins condemn this sort of worship.

Proverbs 28:12 “When righteous men do rejoice there is great glory, but when the wicked rise a man is hidden.

I Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Messiah comes, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of Yahweh.”

Revelation 19:10And I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me: See that you do not do this! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who have the testimony of Yahshua. Worship Yahweh! For the testimony of Yahshua is the spirit of prophecy.”

THE MEANING OF ANIMALS TO REPRESENT HUMANS

For a moment let us consider the meaning of using animals to represent humans, as is the case in Abilene, Texas at the church called the House of Yahweh, where Yisrayl Hawkins (a.k.a. Buffalo Bill Hawkins) is represented by a white buffalo.

Animals may serve as stand-ins for humans or human characteristics, as in the African and Native American trickster tales or the fables of the Greek storyteller Aesop. In some legends, animals perform heroic deeds or act as mediators between heaven and earth. They may also be the source of the wisdom and power of a shaman.

Animals often have a dualistic quality in mythology. They can be helpful to humans or harmful—sometimes both. They provide people with food, but at the same time, they can be dangerous. As sources and symbols, animals represent the mystery and power of the natural world, which can create or destroy.

Connections. Myths, legends, and folktales often highlight the close links between people and animals. West Africans and Native Americans, for example, believe that each person has a magical or spiritual connection to a particular animal that can act as a guardian, a source of wisdom, or an inspiration. Among the Plains Indians of North America, individuals had to discover their spirit animal through a mystical experience called a vision quest. Some Native American religions in Central America include nagualism, the idea that each person's life is linked to an animal or object called a nagual If the nagual is hurt or killed, the person suffers or dies. One myth says that the naguals fought on the side of the Native Americans against the invading Spanish centuries ago. Traditional African religions had secret societies in which men believed they took on a leopard's strength by performing rituals that involved wearing leopard skins.

The Native Americans of the northwestern United States and Canada believe that each clan or kinship group is descended from a particular animal, such as a whale, wolf, or bear. This animal has become the group's totem, a powerful symbol of its identity. People display their identity and status with totem poles—tall standing logs carved with images of mythical animals. Totem poles mark the approaches to villages and the burial sites of chieftains and stand at the entrance of each clan house.

The bull is another animal with a dualistic nature that appears in many myths. It can represent either tremendous energy and power or frightening strength. In Celtic mythology, the bull was a sign of good fortune and fertility. In several Greek legends, bulls were associated with death and destruction. At different times, the hero Theseus* killed both a wild bull that was destroying farmers' fields and the minotaur, a dangerous half-man, half-bull monster. Among Native Americans who traditionally lived by hunting buffalo, myths describe the buffalo's fertility and generosity. The buffalo controls love affairs and determines how many children a woman will bear.

THE MEANING OF THE WHITE BUFFALO

The House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas has transformed their worship of Yahweh, to worshiping a man, whom is represented by a white buffalo. They say that worship is service and have deceived themselves by worshiping a man and calling this worship, service to Yahweh. They have made the buffalo a symbol of the one who they worship. This white buffalo has become an image that represents their leader, Yisrayl Hawkins. Even though this is a prophecy of the Lakota Indians, and has nothing to do with any worship of Yahweh, Yisrayl Hawkins and his leadership have convinced his followers that this Lakota Indian Prophecy, is a prophecy concerning Him and has attempted to make it into a Holy, righteous worship. In fact, He has used it as another way to make money, and many of his followers have this symbol and it’s image on their clothes, in their homes, on their vehicles, on pillows, and have even called their master the great white buffalo! Their cafeteria is called the Buffalo and Buffalette Cafeteria. They even have printed their own money that they call Buffalo money!


Most American circulated money says “In God we Trust”. So is this the God in whom the House of Yisrayl trust?


Let’s see where the children of Israel committed these same abominations.

Psalm 106:20 “By turning from You who they gloried in, they committed a sin comparable to worshiping an ox that eats grass.”

The Lakota Indians view the legend of the White Buffalo Woman as one of its most significant myths, as it serves a spiritual purpose for the Plains tribes. Those who study the myth pay attention to the meaning of the White Buffalo Woman and how she is described in the legend. There are historical and modern day theories surrounding her existence. Other notable parts of the myth include the encounter of the two men are important to note and the importance of the sacred pipe and accompanying ritual. The White Buffalo Woman is often viewed as a "maiden goddess" that suddenly appears from the spirit world. She serves the purpose of bringing an important cultural object to the Lakota tribe (the sacred pipe) and they benefit from her teachings of how to stay in contact with the spirit world. Her connection to the buffalo signifies a significant source of food and clothing for the Lakota. All animals are sacred, but in many traditions White Buffalo is the most sacred. The appearance of White Buffalo is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe is being honored, and the promises of prophecy are being fulfilled. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance and plenty. The White Buffalo is  considered incredibly holy by the Lakota Indians.

Mattithyah (Matthew) 15:18But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart, and they defile the man. For out of the heart, proceeds evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man...”

Mattithyah 16:12 “Then they understood that He did not caution them to beware of leaven in bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”

Romans 10:10For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

The teachings of the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas is contrary to the teachings of the scriptures, when it comes to the worship of Yahweh. They are worshiping a man, Yisrayl Hawkins. Even though they think this is a form of being righteous to Yahweh, it is nothing more than pure deception and godworship! This is being revealed to you, so that you are not deceived into worshiping Yisrayl Hawkins or any man. We should pray for the congregation at Clyde, Texas who worship Yisrayl Hawkins. We should pray for Yisrayl Hawkins. We should pray that they will wake up from the deception that has brought dishonor on the family name, House of Yahweh.

I Timayah 2:1 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.”

They have taught that an ark of the covenant had to be built and so one was built, even though the Prophet Yeremyah prophesied that we would not need a physical ark of the covenant.

Yeremyah 3:16 “And it shall come to pass, when you are multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, says Yahweh, they shall say no more, the ark of the covenant of Yahweh: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done anymore.


THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, IS THE NUMBER OF A MAN, 666, THE HIDDEN ONE

In the book of Revelation, Yahweh reveals prophecy for the believers so that we can know what will come to pass in these extreme last days. Most scholars and bible students have guessed at the prophecies in this book and have attempted to understand it’s mystery. In these last days we as a House of Yahweh, understand that the books were written for us to understand these last days time period. The Holy Scriptures have always been written for the believers. Revelation is no different, it is speaking to the body of believers, House of Yahweh, the family that carries Yahweh’s name. In Revelation we are shown a prophecy of a man. This man is revealed to us in these extreme last days in order to understand, who it is, and what he will do to the called out ones of Yahweh.

Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”

We are shown in this scripture that this will be wisdom, if one understands the number of this beast, whose number is a man. We are shown that the number of this man is 666. The original scriptures were written in Hebrew, not Greek. Yahchanan was a Hebrew and so in order to understand the meaning of this number in this scripture, we will look for a Hebrew word that equals 666 and see what Yahweh is wanting us to see and understand.

The word Sethur is word #5639 in Gesenius and is made up of the following Hebrew letters. Using the Gematria which corresponds Hebrew letters with numerical values we find: Samech=60 Tau=400 Waw=6 Resh=200, which equals 666. The meaning of this word is: HIDDEN.
The root word of Sethur is Sathar which is #5641 and means: to hide; conceal; to hide oneself carefully.
So we can see that the number of this man, who is represented by a beast, has a number that is equal to 666. This word Sethur, in the Gematria equals 666 and means: hidden.

Yisrayl Hawkins through his own writings and defining his hidden name and it’s interpretations, through this beast, the white buffalo, has shown us that he is the Hidden one. This is shown by the plaque under the White Buffalo which greets everyone who enters the gates to his church and states that Yisrayl Hawkins is the Hidden One. This Hebrew word Sethur which equals 666, means Hidden one. Yahweh is showing us the understanding of who this man is. He does not want anyone to worship any man. Yet, Yisrayl Hawkins followers worship him, and have been deceived into thinking that they are worshiping Yahweh through worshiping him. Years ago Yisrayl Hawkins explained in sermons that he changed his name from Buffalo Bill Hawkins to Yisrayl Hawkins because he felt that it would hinder the work of Yahweh. But now he has turned around from his former thinking and uses the name Buffalo Bill Hawkins to glorify himself, utilizing Indian prophecies that have nothing to do with him.

I Corinthians 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until Yahshua comes, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of Yahweh.

Reading about those who have this man as their object of worship and the power he has over them.

Revelation 13:16 “And 2532 he causeth 4160 all 3956, both small 3398 and 2532 great 3173, 2532 rich 4145 and 2532 poor 4434, 2532 free 1658 and 2532 bond 1401, to 2443 846 receive 1325 a mark 5480 in 1909 their 846 right hand 1188 5495, or 2228 in 1909 their 846 foreheads. 3359

So the meaning of this scripture by it’s definitions is: And indeed, He appoints, ordains ones that each, both small in rank and influence, and great in rank, highly esteemed for their excellence; those abundantly supplied and those destitute of honor; one who is not a slave, not obligated, and slaves, devoted to him to the disregard of one’s own interest, to give over to one’s care to follow as a leader and master; a graven image he places as honor and authority, applying this power to Yahweh, in determing to control the destiny of men, indeed against themselves, the same behind the head.

This information is not intended to tear down the believers of Yahweh, but to reveal the sins that are present in this one group of believers who call themselves, a House of Yahweh, led by a man who is in deception at this time. It is the job of every righteous saint to correct their brothers if he sins, so that they may wake up from the deception of Satan. The House of Yahweh started out as a righteous group of believers, who have transformed the worship of Yahweh into worshipping a man, represented by a beast. It is every believers responsibility to protect the name of Yahweh. The information provided here is to show glory to Yahweh and His Name, and to reveal those who dishonor the name, “House of Yahweh.”

IT SHOULD BE OUR DESIRE THAT ALL OF OUR BROTHERS OF ANY HOUSE OF YAHWEH WILL BE SAVED

In the book of Romans we are shown that it should be our hearts longing and desire that all of our brothers can be saved. At this time the 12 tribes of Israel are being called by Yahweh. They are scattered at this time. But because the House of Yahweh, the family name is established now in these last days, we are given an opportunity to come into this family. In Romans we are shown a prophetic vision of what we see going on with some of the scattered tribes down in Clyde, Texas. The body of believers, who started on the righteous path, have been led into the worship of men. Don’t think for a minute that this could never occur within my group of believers. As long as men are allowed to have unrestrained reign and power, and to exercise control over people, then this is a possibility in any group of believers.  

The problems that are prevalent in the House of Yisrayl Hawkins is caused by their unbelief. Because they are not grounded in Yahweh’s Laws and don’t have trust in Yahshua Messiah, they have replaced this belief, by being men pleasers. You cannot please Yahweh if you are busy pleasing men, and cannot be a servant of Yahshua Messiah! This is a fact, and is obvious to those who read and understand the scriptures. We must learn from the things we see and we send you this information, not to condemn Elder Yisrayl Hawkins, but to show you the error of his ways, so that none of us become entrapped like this. We must pray for this man! The prayers of the righteous are to much avail.

It is my hope and desire that all of Yisrayl and his house may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for their master Yisrayl and think by doing so, they are zealous for Yahweh. But their zeal is not according to knowledge. Since they, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from Yahweh, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to Yahweh’s righteousness. For Yahshua Messiah is the ultimate result of keeping the Law unto righteousness for everyone who believes. For we like Abraham, believed in Yahweh and this was accounted to us as righteousness. And like Abraham, have faith in Yahshua, and because of our faith, we preach from our mouths what is in our hearts. If Yahweh has raised Yahshua from the dead and He is now alive in the heavens, what need would anyone want for an earthly man to replace Him? For I ask: Did Yisrayl and his house not understand? Not at this time, for Yahweh is provoking them to jealousy by those who are not a nation and they are angry by a foolish nation! For Yahweh has chosen the foolish things of those who will receive the promised blessings, to confound the teachers who are in a Christian Church, and Yahweh has chosen the strong, who appear weak, of the promised blessing, to make ashamed the things, which are of those who wield great influence among men because of their rank, authority, and riches. Yahweh has not cast away his people who he foreknew and called with an irrevocable calling.

THE BRANCH OUT OF THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH

At this present time there is a remnant chosen according to Yahweh’s undeserved mercy. And if this is by undeserved mercy, then it is no longer by works, otherwise undeserved mercy is no longer undeserved mercy. For if it were by works, then it would no longer be undeserved mercy; otherwise, work would no longer be work. Now what we see in Abilene is a faith by Yisrayl Hawkins which is according to works, not undeserved mercy. But it is his works. His name is on everything. What then? That which Yisrayl has sought for, he has not obtained? But us, as the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded? Just as it is written: Yahweh has given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, today! So has the House of Yisrayl stumbled that they should fall beyond all recovery? By no means! But through their fall, salvation has come to us, to provoke them to jealousy! Now if their fall means such riches for us, think what an enrichment will follow their full reinstatement! So if we provoke them to jealousy, in order to save them. And if their being rejected is the reconciliation of the order of Melchizadek, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead? For the dead will rise first in Messiah, then we will be caught up with him. So let us not boast against the branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you! We could say: Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in. That is true, but they were broken off because of unbelief! We stand by faith in Yahshua Messiah. So let us not be arrogant, but be reverent. For our brothers in the faith, have allowed their faith to be dependent upon belief in a man, and we must teach them to have faith in THE MAN, YAHSHUA MESSIAH.

Therefore, behold the righteousness and the severity of Yahweh: on those who fall, severity; but towards us, righteousness, if you continue in Yahweh’s righteousness. Otherwise we also will be cut off. So if our brothers do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for Yahweh is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree? I don’t want you to be ignorant of this great secret, brethren, so that we may not be wise in our own conceits: that blindness in part has come upon Yisrayl and his House, until the full number of the order of Melchizadek has come in. And so all of Yisrayl’s House will be saved, as it is written: “The one who does the part of a kinsman, who brings forth spiritual children for his brother, and passes down the blessings, will enter into the city of David and He will repent, turning back to Yahweh, from sins and transgression against the descendants, family, house of Yaaqob, declares Yahweh.”  For this is my covenant with them, when I take away their sins. As far as the message is concerned, they are enemies for our sake; but as far as Yahweh’s calling for his Holy Priesthood is concerned, they are the beloved for the sake of the order of Melchizadek. For Yahweh’s gifts and His call are irrevocable; For as we were once disobedient to Yahweh, yet have not received mercy through their disobedience, So they too, as a result of Yahweh’s mercy to us, have now become disobedient in order that they, too, may now receive mercy. For Yahweh has delivered them into the power of one man, imprisoning them, in their disbelief, that he may have mercy upon all of them. Oh, the depths of the riches of both the wisdom and knowledge of Yahweh! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!

It is not the intention of this article to judge Yisrayl Hawkins or the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas. But only to expose them and their sins, so that they may repent. The facts presented are to reveal their hidden sins and to be an example to the believers, so that no House of Yahweh will fall into this type of worship or deception. It is our sincere desire that all the branches can be grafted back into the tree! We as a body of believers have been scattered for thousands of years. Now in these extreme last days, unity is needed for all the tribes of Israel/Yaaqob.

THE WORK OF YAHWEH

The establishment of House of Yahweh, a body of believers, has been prophesied and being fulfilled. So why has Yahshua our Messiah not returned? The disciples of Yahshua asked the same thing and wanted to know about the end of days.

Mattithyah 24:3 “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying; Tell us when will these things be? What will be the sign of Your coming and the end of the age?

The sign of Yahshua’s coming.

Mattithyah 24:29,30 “Immediately, but after the tribulation of those days will the sun be darkened, and the moon will not give her light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then will all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

The end of the age.

Mattithyah 28:18-20 “And Yahshua came and spoke to them, saying; All authority is given to Me in heaven and in earth. Go you therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them into the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Yahshua told us we must teach the Laws of Yahweh to the 12 tribes, the order of Melchizedek, baptizing them and teaching them to observe Yahweh’s Laws. The gathering of Yahweh’s people in these last days is being done by Yahweh, through those whom He calls and chooses. There is a work of Yahweh being done, by many of those who love Yahweh and His Son, Yahshua Messiah. We see in the Holy Scriptures that Yahweh does work.

Genesis 2:2 “And on the seventh day Yahweh ended his work, which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

Psalm 64:9 “And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of Yahweh, for they shall wisely consider of his doing.”

Ecclesiastes 7:13 “Consider the work of Yahweh; for who can make straight, that which he has made crooked?”

Yahchanan 6:29,38 “Yahshua answered, and said to them; This is the work of Yahweh, that you believe in Him Whom He has Sent. Because I have come down out of Yahweh, not to do My own will, but the will of Him Who Sent Me.”

Work as found in Genesis 2:2 is #4399 and means: occupation, work, business, something done or made; same as #4397 which means: one sent, messenger, a messenger of Yahweh. As being the messenger of Yahweh and a teacher of the Gentiles.
Work is defined as: Physical or mental effort or activity directed toward the production or accomplishment of something. Something that has been produced or accomplished through the effort, activity, or agency of a person or thing.

The work that Yahshua Messiah did, is the same work that we must do. Yahshua Messiah was the One Sent, to teach us salvation and we must believe on Him. The Law was our teacher up until Yahshua. The Law brought forth judgment and Yahshua brought salvation. We must always allow the Law to judge us, and we most definitely must let Yahshua give us salvation. The work of Yahweh that we must do is to do the work of a minister of the message. We must be messengers of Yahweh. You are the House of Yahweh! The House of Yahweh is not a location, a building, a church, nor is it made with human hands. You are the House of Yahweh, if the spirit of Yahweh dwells in you. You were not made with human hands.

Acts 17:24 “Yahweh, Who made the world and all things in it, being Creator of heaven and earth, does not dwell in Houses made with hands.”

A REMNANT OF THOSE, CALLED HOUSE OF YAHWEH, WILL BE SAVED

A remnant will be saved in these extreme last days. Yahweh showed that they will come from the east and the west and once again be brought back to Yerusalem.

Zecharyah 8:6-8 “This is what Yahweh of Hosts says: Because it will be marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days, should it also be marvelous in My eyes? says Yahweh of Hosts. This is what Yahweh of Hosts says: Behold, I will save My people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they will dwell in the midst of Yerusalem. They will be my people and I will be their Father, in truth and righteousness.”

Yechetzqyah 14:22 “Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, [both] sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and you shall see their way and their doings: and you shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, [even] concerning all that I have brought upon it.”

Yahyl 2:32 “And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Yerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yahweh has said, and in the remnant whom Yahweh shall call.”

Micahyah 2:12 “I will surely assemble, O Yaaqob, all of you; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel...

Micahyah 5:3,7,8 “Therefore, He will give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; Then the remnant of his brothers will return to the children of Israel. The remnant of Yaaqob will be in the midst of many peoples, like dew from Yahweh, like showers on the grass which waits for no man, nor tarries for the sons of men. The remnant of Yaaqob will be among the order of Melchizedek, those of the 12 tribes, in the midst of many peoples...”

In the Law of Yahweh we are shown in the song by Mosheh, that Yahweh’s teaching should fall like rain, for the remnant of Yahweh’s people. And we Yahweh’s people, the remnant of Israel, will be like showers on the grass:

Deuteronomy 32:2 Let my teaching fall like rain. Let my words descend like dew. Let them fall like showers on the new grass; like abundant rain on plants.”

The remnant of Yahweh will not lie, nor do iniquity and they won’t be deceived! But they will be saved.

Zephanyah 3:13The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make [them] afraid.”

Romans 9:27; 11:5 “Isayah also cries out concerning Israel,(The order of Melchizedek, the 12 tribes): Though the number of the children be as the sand of the sea, a remnant will be saved. So, too, at this present time there is a remnant chosen according to Yahweh’s undeserved mercy.”

This remnant of Yahweh will be persecuted.

Revelation 12:13 “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man.”

The remnant of Yahweh, called by the family name, House of Yahweh, will be gathered in these extreme last days to do the work of preaching and publishing the name of Yahweh and teaching the world of His Laws. We will be preaching Yahshua Messiah, who started in the flesh. We will teach those whom Yahweh is calling, to return to Yahweh and to be called by the family name of Yahweh, House of Yahweh.

Mattithyah 24:14 “And this message of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world, for a witness, testimony to all nations (multitude of individuals of the same nature or genus; the family of the order of Melchizedek); and then shall the end come.”

Yahchanan Mark 13:10 “But the message must first be published throughout all nations.”

The message is being preached and published to those Yahweh is calling back to His family. The nations we are preaching to is not governmental bodies. It is the 12 tribes of Israel, which are now called nations, or people grouped together, spread throughout this earth. Yahweh is bringing the message to you! This is being fulfilled before our eyes this day!

Romans 15:4For whatever things were written in former times were written for our learning, that we, through endurance and the comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Romans 11:26 “And so all of Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The deliverer will come out of Zion, and he will turn away unrighteousness from Yaaqob;”

THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP, A BLOOD COVENANT

The true House of Yahweh is under a covenant relationship with Yahweh. This blood covenant was and is ratified by those who accept Yahweh’s laws which bring them to Yahshua Messiah, our salvation to enter the Most Holy Place where Yahweh dwells. This is done by repentance from sin, confession to not go back into sin, baptism, and then conversion to the Laws of Yahweh.

Exodus 24:8 “And Mosheh took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and said: Behold the blood of the covenant, which Yahweh has made with you concerning all these words.”

Hebrews 10:29 “How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished, who has trampled the Son of Yahweh underfoot, and has counted the blood of the covenant, with which he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and who has insulted the Spirit of Mercy?”

Hebrews 13:20 “Now may the Father of Peace, the One having brought up out of the dead, the great Shepherd of the sheep, our Redeemer Yahshua, through the blood of the everlasting covenant.”

In this time period, called the extreme last days, the children of Israel, should be ready to fulfill the promise and prophecy that Yeremyah the prophet spoke concerning this last days work, called, House of Yahweh.

Yeremyah 16:14,15Therefore behold, the days come, says Yahweh; that it will no more be said: As surely as Yahweh lives Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt! But, as surely as Yahweh lives, who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the North, and from all the lands where he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

Micahyah 4:10 “Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in childbirth; For now you shall go forth out of the city, and you shall live in the field, and you shall go to Babylon; there you will be delivered; there Yahweh will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.”

The time is now for the children of Israel to come together! If not now, then when? In order for these prophecies to be fulfilled, we have to believe in them and do what Yahweh commands.

THE TRUE HOUSE OF YAHWEH

As you have seen in this study, there are physical Houses of Yahweh. Most have let sin creep into their work and by doing so, have caused Yahweh to remove his face from them. So is it physical buildings that Yahweh is concerned with, in order to receive worship? Or is it us, the living members of His creation that Yahweh is concerned with? We have seen many scriptures that show you, that Yahweh’s House is not built with hands. He is a living Father, who is concerned with His living children. The scriptures show us that we are the House of Yahweh, if the spirit of Yahweh dwells within you. Yahshua Messiah, was the ONE SENT who established the True House of Yahweh. He was the first, founder of the established, House of Yahweh, a living being, made into the image and glory of Yahweh. Once this House was established, there was no longer a need for a physical building needed to offer sacrifices and offerings to Yahweh. There was no longer a need for a physical Priesthood after the order of Levi. Yahshua established the order of Melchizedek, and was the firstborn into this order. Yahshua Messiah established the House of Yahweh, this was the beginning of the last days.

We are now in the extreme last days, and the House of Yahweh that was founded by Yahshua,, is the continuation of the Priesthood that Yahshua Messiah is now High Priest and High King over. We are now being built into a living body, called the living House of Yahweh.

Romans 12:5 “So we, being many, are one body in Messiah, and every one members one of another.”

I Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the sanctuary, (the Holy Place) of the Holy Spirit in you, which you have from Yahweh, and you are not your own?”

I Corinthians 10:17For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.”

There is a physical body and a spiritual body. Yahweh is building us into a spiritual body.

I Corinthians 15:44 “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.”

The place where Yahweh has placed his name in these last days is in His Son, Yahshua. We can be a Son of Yahweh if we place Yahweh’s Name in us. If we are obedient to the every word of Yahweh and hold fast to the faith in Yahshua Messiah, then we are the Holy House of Yahweh. Where two or more are gathered, there is a House of Yahweh founded.

Mattithyah 18:20 “For 1063 where 3757 two 1417 or 2228 three 5140 are 1526 gathered together 4863 in 1519 my 1699 name 3686, there 1563 am I 1510 in 1722 the midst 3319 of them.846

There is word #1563 and means: there, in or to that place.

Mattithyah 18:20Verily as the case stands, where, two or three, are gathered together, to lead oneself, towards my name, the name used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing, remembering, the name, i.e. for one's rank, authority, interests, pleasure, command, excellence, deeds; into or to that place, I am present, in the midst of himself, them.

Yahweh is present in the place where two or more have established the family name of Yahweh in their lives.

THE WORK OF A HOUSE OF YAHWEH

We see throughout the scriptures that those whom Yahweh has called to be part of the family name, called House of Yahweh, were called to do a work for the Creator. In these last days we have seen that it is our job to continue in this work, in order to bring about the Kingdom of Yahweh and the return of our salvation, Yahshua Messiah. Our job is to preach and publish the Laws of Yahweh, and the salvation of His Son, Yahshua, Messiah. We are the gleaners and the harvest is plenty at this time! All of the 12 tribes of the order, called Melchizedek, are the firstfruits unto Yahweh.

Yeremyah 2:3Israel was holiness unto Yahweh, and the firstfruits of His increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, says Yahweh.”

The 144,000 are the first of the firstfruits. Remember though, that when Yahshua spoke of the harvest, he told his disciples to reap the harvest in their day. The corners of the field and those scattered here and there throughout the field is a type of what the spiritual gleaners are to glean today.

Isayah 11:11,12 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yahweh shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Yahdah from the four corners of the earth.”

Notice the outcasts of Israel are scattered to the four corners of the earth, just as the gleaners were left in the field. The word glean means--”To gather what has been left by reapers; to collect anything slowly and gradually.” This is the meaning of the work of a House of Yahweh in our day. The gleaning today is converting one here and one there, through the message of the Kingdom, as the Prophets foretold.

Yeremyah 3:12-15 “Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say: Return, you backsliding Israel, says Yahweh; and I will not cause my anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, says Yahweh, and I will not keep anger forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against Yahweh your mighty one, and have scattered your ways to the strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed my voice, says Yahweh. Turn O backsliding children says Yahweh; for I am married to you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: And I will give you pastors according to my heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

The children of Yahweh, called the seed of Yaaqob, the 12 tribes of Israel, could not return to Israel before 1948, because there was no land or nation for them to return to. They have been scattered from the land that Yahweh gave them, for thousands of years. The prophecy showed that the tribes would be scattered, and that Yahshua would give them up, until these extreme last days when a remnant will return.

Micahyah 5:3Therefore, will He give them up, until the time that She which travaileth has brought forth: then the remnant of His brothers shall return unto the children of Israel.”

Isayah 66:8 Who had heard such a thing? Who had seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

In one day, May 14, 1948 the nation called Israel, was born. The children of Israel, the body of Messiah, could not return to Israel before 1948, because they had no land, and there was no House of Yahweh before 1973. It was necessary for certain prophecies to be fulfilled in order for the last days work of Yahweh, the family name, House of Yahweh, could be revealed. In one day, July 2, 1973, Yaaqob Hawkins established the family name, House of Yahweh in Nazareth, Israel, the same place Yahshua started his ministry.

Mattithyah 2:23 “And He came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.”

The word Nazarene is #3478 and means: a sprout, a shoot; branch.

Yahshua Messiah was the branch from the tree of life. We are from that branch, if we do the works of Yahweh. Nothing is coincidences, when it concerns the work that Yahweh has chosen to establish. It is our job to uphold the Laws of Yahweh, and to bring forth the righteous Kingdom of Yahweh.

CONCLUSION

The law of Yahweh presented here, has been shown to you about the establishment of Yahweh and His Family called, House of Yahweh. We have revealed the truths and facts concerning the establishment of the believers, called by this family name. We have also shown who the House of Yahweh is, what we should be doing, and the importance of fulfilling the prophecies. Jacob Hawkins established a name, House of Yahweh, that should bring excitement and passion into every believers hearts, souls and minds. We need to put away our differences and gather together in one mind and heart to bring about the prophecies of this last days work. This work is named after our Patriarch and forefather in the faith, who was the father of the 12 tribes, called Yaaqob/Israel. It was established first in these extreme last days, by a man whose name was also, Yaaqob! Let us consider these prophecies very carefully and put away hatred! The 12 tribes have been fighting each other for far too long. Isn’t it time for a Peaceful Resolution!

By reading this Law thus far, it is hopeful that if you are a leader or follower, in any sacred name organization, that you will understand the history revealed to you and understand the prophecy of Yahweh is sure. The True House of Yahweh is alive at this time, a living body, but not yet gathered and organized together as the 12 tribes of the Melchizedek order, unto one place. This Law you are reading, reveals to you that Yahweh named a work here for you to hear, listen, and then believe, all that the prophets spoke concerning a House of Yahweh. The government of Yahweh is being formed at this time by a body of believers, who do not worship any man, and who are working to gather the 12 Tribes of Israel together in these extreme last days. I am urging everyone who reads this to join us in this great work! We believe every minister, Elder, Rabbi, Overseer, Pastor, and follower of Yahweh, has the right to eat the fruits of their labor and work. We are not encouraging you to join together, in order to remove your leadership and authority. We want you to join together in formulating the plan of Yahweh, by joining to the family called, House of Yahweh and fulfilling the prophecies, of this great work, called House of Yahweh. The Bayith Yahweh, or House of Yahweh, which is a seed of the first work of Yahweh in these last days is calling together the tribes of Yahweh at this time. We are hoping that if you love Yahweh, His Great Laws that bring us judgment, and Yahshua Messiah, who brings salvation, that you will join the body of believers, which is the Holy House of Yahweh, in order to finish the work and bring in the prophecies concerning the Last days work, called “House of Yahweh.” Please contact us at: www.bayithyahweh.org and let’s come into unity! Just as King Hezekyah called together the tribes of Israyl in his day, we a House of Yahweh, are calling together the congregations of Yahweh in these extreme last days.

II Chronicles 30:5 “So they resolved to issue a proclamation throughout all Israyl, from Beersheba to Dan, inviting them to come to keep the Passover to Yahweh, the Father of Israel, at Yerusalem, since they had not held the Feast according to what was written for a long time.

Hebrews 12:22-24 “But you have come to Mount Zion, and to the city of the living Father, the heavenly Yahweh Shammah, and to an innumerable company of malakim, to the great gathering for Yahweh’s Feasts and the called out ones of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to Yahweh the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men having been made perfect. And to Yahshua the Mediator of the renewed covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.

We are calling together the congregations of the House of Yahweh, making a proclamation to the family of believers to contact us and let us come into agreement to keep the Covenant of Peace. Let us keep the Feast of Passover to Yahweh together in unity with our Head, Yahshua Messiah, as a body of believers. Each tribe under it’s banner will join together to give Yahweh the praise and worship he deserves. Please contact us! The Proclamation is going out to you. Each Elder, Overseer, and member of the family name called, “House of Yahweh.” FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT US AT: www.bayithyahweh.org and fill out our contact form or email us at: bayithyahweh613@gmail.com



THE PROCLAMATION OF YAHWEH TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAYL


Children of Israel, return to Yahweh, the father of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel. He then will return to the remnant of you who have escaped from the hands of the Kings who dispersed you. Do not be like your fathers and your brothers who trespassed against and wronged Yahweh, the mighty one of our fathers, Who handed them over to desolation, as you see: Do not be stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but submit yourselves to Yahweh. Enter His Sanctuary, the body of believers, which He has sanctified forever, and serve Yahweh your Father, so the fierceness of His wrath may turn away from you. If you return to Yahweh, your brothers and your children will be dealt with compassionately by those who led them captive, and will be permitted to return to the land, for Yahweh your Father is merciful and compassionate. He will not turn His face from you, if you will return to Him. Keep the Feast of Passover to Yahweh your Father, just as it is written in this Book of the Covenant.

LET’S KEEP THE FEAST OF PASSOVER AND UNLEAVENED BREAD LIKE IT HAS NOT BEEN KEPT IN A VERY LONG TIME, AS WELL AS ALL OF YAHWEH'S FEASTS!

About the author:

Kepha Arcemont Hawkins has been a student of Yahshua Messiah since the age of 11. He was born in 1960 in New Orleans, Louisiana and spent 23 years (1987-2010) in a physical House of Yahweh located in Abilene, Texas. He was ordained a Deacon in 1988, an Elder in 1989, and a Judge in 1991. As one of 7 Judges, ordained by Yahweh to bring judgment to the physical House of Yahweh, his stand for truth, against men of perdition, was cause for his unjust removal from this physical House of Yahweh. The above article is from 23 years of investigation and knowledge, in what he found to be true in the physical House of Yahweh, built with hands, by men. He has traveled to Israel in order to verify the existence of a physical House of Yahweh. He is a witness to verify that the family of believers are called Bayith (House) of Yahweh. He has written the above article as a testimony and warning to those who seek to follow men of perdition, instead of the True Teacher, Yahshua our Messiah.
