- A Nation of Jews & Gentiles -
Set-Apart Nation of Yisrael
"Let all nations You have made come and bow themselves before You, O יהוה, and give esteem to Your Name."
YAHUAH Elohim is the Maker of the Heavens and the earth. He is Master over the whole universe. He is El Shaddai.
YAHUAH is compassionate and kind, and He desires to bless all of His creations. He wants all people on the earth, both Jews and Gentiles, to be one people. He promised Abraham to make him a father of many nations. When YAH brings all His people together, we are called the Set-Apart Nation of Yisrael.
“As for Me, look, My covenant is with you,
and you shall become a father of many nations.
"And no longer is your name called Abram,
but your name shall be Abraham,
because I shall make you a father of many nations.
“And I shall make you bear fruit exceedingly,
and make nations of you,
and sovereigns shall come from you."
"Let all the ends of the earth remember and turn to יהוה, and all clans of the nations bow themselves before You. For the reign belongs to יהוה, and He is ruling over the nations."
Returning to Yahudah
YAHUAH desires His people to come together as one. A perfect example of this is the story of Ruth in the Scriptures.
Naomi, a Hebrew from Yahudah, was returning to her homeland from Moab when her daughter-in-law, Ruth, a Gentile (Moabite), clung to her and desired to go with her. Ruth desired to return with Naomi to the people of Elohim and to the Elohim of Yisrael.
Ruth 1:16-17 "But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you, or to go back from following after you. For wherever you go, I go; and wherever you stop over, I stop over. Your people is my people, and your Elohim is my Elohim. Where you die, I die, and there I shall be buried. יהוה do so to me, and more also – for death itself parts you and me.”
Ruth became inseparable from Naomi, vowing to go where she goes, stop where she stops, and even to die and be buried where she is buried.
This joining is like a marriage. When a gentile connects himself to the people of Elohim, to cling to them and accept יהוה their Elohim, it is a marriage of oneness with His people.
Ruth continued on with Naomi and met Boaz, a prominent Yahudi (Jew) who became her redeemer. To be redeemed, she had to first return to the people of Yahudah.
She was also blessed as written:
Ruth 4:11 "And all the people who were at the gate, and the elders, said, “Witnesses! יהוה make the woman who is coming to your house as Rahel and as Le’ah, the two who built the house of Yisra’el. And prove your worth in Ephrathah and proclaim the Name in Beyth Lehem."
Ruth, who came from among the gentiles, became the great-grandmother of King David, who reigned over the united kingdom of Yisrael and was the progenitor of the Mashiach.
The United Kingdom
King David pitched a Tent for the Ark of the Covenant to rest (2 Shem/Sam. 6:17).
The Tablets of the Covenant were inside the Ark, and wherever the Word of YAHUAH dwelled, there the Presence and the Name of the Most High also dwelled. Therefore, David’s Tent that housed the Ark, became a Mishkan, a Set-Apart Dwelling Place for YAHUAH.
The Torah, the Book of the Law, was central in the service to YAH. David set up the Tzadokite priesthood to make offerings before the Ark of the Covenant. He made offerings of righteousness and right-ruling.
This new Tent, the Booth of David, was in operation at the same time as the original Mishkan which was still standing at Gibeon. By allowing King David to receive the Ark and place it in the Tent he pitched for it, YAH was doing a new thing in the earth (Yesh/Is. 43:19).
King David reigned over the united kingdom of Israel, when all twelve tribes were unified as one nation under his kingship. David also fought many battles that expanded the borders of the nation and ultimately ushered in a time of peace.
People from many nations came to dwell in Yisrael. Many became converts. Others remained gentiles but worshiped YAHUAH alongside their Yisraelite neighbors.
The Tent of David became the place where both the Hebrews and Gentiles served YAHUAH. Both peoples were keeping the Laws and Commands of Elohim and doing His will.
The Completeness of the Reign
Amos 9:11-12 “In that day I shall raise up the booth of Dawid which has fallen down. And I shall repair its breaches and raise up its ruins. And I shall build it as in the days of old, so that they possess the remnant of Edom, and all the gentiles on whom My Name is called,” declares יהוה who does this."
In the last days, the Tent of David will be raised back up for Jews and Gentiles to worship YAHUAH together. This is the completeness of the Reign of Elohim - the oneness of two peoples, Jews and Gentiles, together.
The ancient symbol below shows the completeness of the Reign. The two lions are similar though not the same, and they lie down together in peace. These are the two peoples, Jews and Gentiles, who are different peoples, yet both keep Torah and serve YAH together in peace as one nation.
The set-apart nation of YAHUAH is made up of the Hebrew people and the Gentiles who join themselves to the Hebrews. When all YAH's people live and serve Him together as one, then His reign in the earth is complete.
“And I shall sow her for Myself in the earth, and I shall have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion. And I shall say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people,’ while they say, ‘My Elohim!’ ”
The Flag of Family of Messiah
This flag was revealed in a dream in 2004. It is a representation of who we are: two nations, Jews and Gentiles, joined together as one.
The Magen David (Shield of David) on the right represents Yahudah, the Jewish (Hebrew) people. This side includes the Ten Lost Tribes of Yisrael who are awakening to their heritage.
On the left is a very small bronze wheel. This wheel represents the returning ones, those from among the nations who have returned to the Name of YAHUAH and the Torah of Elohim.
The wheel is called the Noach Gate. It is the gate for the righteous gentiles who have committed to keeping the seven laws of Noah. Through the Noahide Covenant, they enter the nation of YAHUAH.
The left side of the flag is a nation in itself, just as the Hebrew people are a nation. They are a separate people who have come back to the Almighty YAHUAH and to His people. They are called Noahides (Bnei Noach) and join with the people of Yahudah to be one people unto the Creator.
Together, both peoples are the one set-apart nation of Yisrael. One group is identified and known as the people of Elohim (Yahudah, i.e. the Jews), and the other group YAH has called from among the Gentiles to also be His people (Bnei Noach).
Both are seated at the same table serving Elohim with the Torah as the common denominator between the two. This is the Whole House of Yisrael, the Tent of David raised up (Amos 9:11).
YAHUAH desires all His people around the world to be one, and this is the foundation of Family of Messiah Assembly.
Set-Apart Temple Banner of Family of Messiah
This banner was also revealed in a dream in 2004. It was a prophecy that came to pass after many more years of seeking Elohim.
The entire banner represents the set-apart ones of YAHUAH in His Assembly. Just like the nation’s flag, the right side represents the Torah-observant Jewish nation (the Hebrew people), and the left side represents the returning ones, the righteous gentiles who keep the Noahide Laws.
In the middle are the set-apart Yisraelites, the priesthood in the last days. They have the Torah of Elohim and serve YAHUAH by doing works of righteousness and making offerings of peace among His people. They serve on behalf of both peoples of Yisrael: Yahudah and Bnei Noach.
Family of Messiah Assembly is among the set-apart Yisraelites in the center. This House of Elohim is established under the priesthood of Tzadok according to the Order of Malkitsedeq (Yehez/Ezek. 44:15; Teh/Ps. 110:4).
YAHUAH has chosen the leaders of this House to stand before Him in prayer for all Yisrael. We are priests who serve in the Name of the Most High, praying day and night for the people of His Covenant, for our communities, and for all the world.
THE UNITED NATION
"For then I shall turn unto the peoples a clean lip, so that they all call on the Name of יהוה, to serve Him with one shoulder."
Family of Messiah Assembly is set-apart to YAHUAH. We are set-apart ones of Yisrael who learn Torah, live it, and teach it. We call on the set-apart Name of YAHUAH and bless His Name always.
YAHUAH has built this assembly as His dwelling place so that His Presence is among all His people, Jews and Gentiles (Shem/Ex. 25:8).
We stand united with Torah-keeping Hebrews, the Jewish people. We vow to stand with our brothers, the Jews, and with all people who have returned to the Torah of Elohim, to His will and His ways. This includes all gentiles who have turned from falsehood and pagan religions to return to the Torah of YAHUAH.
As a united people, Jews and Gentiles, we shall serve the Most High Elohim with one shoulder.
Gen 12:1 And יהוה said to Aḇram, “Go yourself out of your land, from your relatives and from your father’s house, to a land which I show you.
Gen 12:2 “And I shall make you a great nation, and bless you and make your name great, and you shall be a blessing!
Gen 12:3 “And I shall bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.
Gen 48:19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He also becomes a people, and he also is great. And yet, his younger brother is greater than he, and his seed is to become the completeness of the nations.”
Num 15:15 ‘One law is for you of the assembly and for the stranger who sojourns with you – a law forever throughout your generations. As you are, so is the stranger before יהוה.
Num 15:16 ‘One Torah and one right-ruling is for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.’ ”
1Ch 16:24 Declare His esteem among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
Psa 22:27 Let all the ends of the earth Remember and turn to יהוה, And all clans of the nations Bow themselves before You.
Psa 22:28 For the reign belongs to יהוה, And He is ruling over the nations.
Psa 86:9 Let all nations You have made Come and bow themselves before You, O יהוה, And give esteem to Your Name.
Psa 108:3 I praise You, O יהוה, among peoples, And I sing praises to You among the nations.
Psa 102:18 This is written for a generation to come, So that a people to be created praise Yah.
It’s the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 36 and 37, the one stick of Yisrael.
The Covenant of the Most High is completed as written:
Exo 19:5 ‘And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine –
Exo 19:6 ‘and you shall be to Me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl.”
