!START HERE!

For those coming here for the first time, this site can be a bit overwhelming. There is a lot of content here – much of which may challenge some of the things you’ve believed most of your life. To be honest, much of my own beliefs have been significantly challenged and this site reflects the personal journey of discovery that I’ve been on since about 2010.

 

 

What is the Ephraim Awakening? In short, this is:

Each of those blue and red tags represent individuals and home group fellowships consisting of people from all over the world who – independent of any human leader – have woken up (just as the Prodigal Son in Yeshua’s parable) and opened their Bibles in Genesis and realized there is more to our salvation experience than we’ve been taught most of our lives.

Indeed, this is not a “cult” as some would like to label it. A “cult” has a leader. The only One leading this “movement” is the Holy Spirit. No pastor, teacher, church or denomination started this. No. This is a massive move of YHWH Himself.

Some have labeled this the “Hebrew Roots Movement.” On the surface, the label seems appropriate. Many are going back to the Hebrew Old Testament to discover the “roots” of our faith. In the very beginning, I thought it might be an appropriate term I could identify with. But as this “movement” began to grow and mature, certain doctrines, practices and personalities began to emerge and become synonymous with the phrase, “Hebrew Roots Movement.” And many of those I could NOT identify with at all – such as dissing the Apostle Paul or embracing polygamy or denying Yeshua as the Messiah and a whole host of other things that I wanted no part in – and certainly didn’t want to be affiliated with in any way. Now let me state here that it is only a MINORITY of people who believe that way. However, unfortunately, sometimes the vocal minority can seem to overshadow the vast majority. As such, I didn’t want anything to do with that label and its associated baggage and drama.

Yet, for some reason, everyone seems to need a “label” to attach to themselves and others. But I refused to let that label be pinned on me. So, initially, I started to call myself a member of the “Whole Bible Movement” (which was something I just made up for the sake of creating a label I could feel comfortable using). On August 31, 2013 I posted the following on my Facebook page:


https://scontent-dfw5-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/10846172_10152956244947754_1713854915003221980_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-2.xx&oh=2dd6105141966343b004ddc555348cfe&oe=5CFCF13B

Since I don’t consider myself part of any of the various “movements” and “denominations” out there, I started looking for a new one. Finally, I found it! It’s called the Whole Bible Movement (WBM). What does that mean? It means once you get yourself a Bible, you should start reading right after the Table of Contents at the part labeled Genesis 1:1 and keep going until you finish Revelation 22:21. The only mandatory requirement is that you believe every word written by the Book’s Author (I’ll tell you more about Him in a second). He’s even given every member of this WBM a Helper to guide you to all truth. No commentary or additional teaching is needed. It does however help if you tear out the man-made commercial interruptions as I have done here in this picture (above). Just sayin’.

OK. So this movement is AMAZING! It’s founder is the Author of the Bible. His name is YHWH (pronounced in different ways, such as Yahuwah, Yahweh, Yahovah, Jehovah… some just call Him Yah for short or our “Heavenly Father” – but don’t worry, He knows what you mean). I really liked that there’s just one leader though. That was refreshing. The best part? Membership in this movement is open to everyone! Sa-weet!

This movement has (as the title suggests) only one Book. Yes, it’s called the Bible. Which translation should you get? Great question! Go to your local bookstore and pray to YHWH, our Heavenly Father, the Author of the Book and Creator of the Universe (how cool is that?) and ask Him for the Helper (a.k.a. the Holy Spirit) to point you to the one that is best for you. Trust me, you can’t go wrong if you do that. 

And if you REALLY want a direct connection (sometimes Authors are hard to reach), He’s made a way for you to do so… and it’s 100% FREE – with an eternal guarantee (now how can you beat that?)! The Way to His direct line is through His only begotten Son, Yeshua (some call Him Jesus). Here’s the only catch: He wants you to admit that you’re not perfect. You have to pray, sincerely confessing your sins and then accept Him to be Lord of your life. I know that sounds pretty strange if you’ve never done it. But seriously, what have you got to lose? You only have all of eternity to gain! So just tell Him you’re sorry for all the bad things you’ve done (you gotta mean it though). Ask Him to forgive you, save you and come and live in your heart. He will! Works every time. Once He’s in, you will have UNLIMITED ACCESS to the Author for all eternity. Not a bad deal at all. His direct line is never busy and He answers every time you call. On top of all that, you will experience love and joy like you’ve never known before. Seriously. And that’s just the beginning. There are many, many more benefits that come with having a personal relationship with the Author’s Son. If you’re still not sure what to believe about all that, just go ahead and join the WBM. The Book tells you all you need to know about Him. 

So, if you’ve become jaded by all of the other denominations and movements, this one might be right for you! As you see people “Liking” and sharing this post (and giving positive comments along the way), you will see that this group is quite large and will continue to grow – especially as you pass this notice along on your wall and in various other social media sites. Here’s to a fresh start! Hope you join up. 

Not too long after this though, I began to realize there’s something more going on here. This new revelation came as a result of some discussion we had in our home group Bible study fellowship. The details of that can be found here: http://ephraimawakening.com/leviticus-26-ezekiel-4/
 
This led to the realization that the reason SO MANY people were “waking up” all over the world at roughly the same time – 2009-2010 – was because we may be looking at the fulfillment of a very ancient prophecy. The content on this site is meant to help unpack that prophecy and reveal what it means to walk in the fulfillment thereof.
 
For a very general overview to help you get started, please watch this 2 hour video, which was a lecture I gave during a 2017 Passover conference:

The following videos were not done by me, but they perfectly summarize what I likewise believe and they do a wonderful job of showing why the Torah is still important for us as Believers in Yeshua:
 

And this is just the tip of the iceberg!
 

Welcome to the Ephraim Awakening.
