uncertain times, all of us are all looking for something that we can count
on, something that will give our lives and our families meaning and
stability. At Family Bible Ministries we believe that the only “something”
that will never fail is a SomeOne — Yeshua HaNatseret, the Lion of
Judah, Israel’s King Messiah, and the living Son of

As someone has rightly said, “Wherever there are two Jews, there will be three opinions.” While I view myself as a Messianic Jew, there are those who actually have the audacity to dispute even my own opinion of who I am. Some of my friends [and many of my detractors] who are “very Jewish” say that I am not a Jew at all because I believe that Israel’s Messiah has already come and will come again; others who are “very Gentile” say that I have “abandoned the Christian faith” and turned to “Galatianism” (Legalism — Torah observance to gain salvation). Some others would say that I cannot even be a true “Messianic” because I follow a literal, historical, grammatical, and somewhat-dispensational approach to interpreting the Scriptures. In spite of the fact that the terms “Hebrew,” “Israelite,” and “Jew” are often used interchangeably in the Scriptures to refer to the descendants of Avraham, Yitzhak, and Ya`akov (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob), some have actually informed me that I am not a Jew at all, but rather a “Hebrew” because the term “Jew” literally refers only to the physical descendants of Ya`akov’s son Yehudah (Judah).
suffice it to say that my genealogical record demonstrates that I am a
physical descendant of Avraham, Yitzhak, and Ya`akov (Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob). The blood of the Patriarchs flows in my veins, which makes me
genetically an Israelite, period! Since many Jewish Sages claim that my
ancestor Avraham was “the first Jew,” I have no reservations about
referring to myself as a Jew. I believe that Yeshua HaNatseret is Israel’s
The “Messianic Restoration Movement” is many things, but one of its many key elements is the work to restore the lost Hebraic nature of scriptural faith. Sometimes this is called returning to our Jewish roots and so, in part, it is. But it is more. The Most High gave an eternal style to our ancient faith that would be unmistakable in the world as belonging to Him. His people were to be His own and to be His unique witness to the world. We are to be a chosen people, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.
One of the worst things that could happen to the people of Adonai is to assimilate into the world’s fashion: to think like the world thinks and to follow the world’s lead. Our purpose is to lead the world to worship and obey the Almighty. With such a task before us we must be assimilation proof. We must reflect the ancient ways He gave us, else how can we show that we have something different and better to offer the world.
Please join us in the effort to remain a holy, unique people for the glory of ADONAI. Let us together peaceably fight the good fight against assimilation by this evil world system.
It is the purpose of this web site to present Yeshua HaMashiach as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to both Jew and non-Jew alike, so that “your name may be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
Thank you and shalom.
