Hebrew Roots in Israel

"...many missionaries themselves now refer to themselves not as Christians but as 'messianic Jews.' They wear yarmulkes, don a tallit, and even have their own 'rabbis.' The State of Israel is a crucial target for such missionaries, and many so-called messianic Jews are actually born Christians who have given themselves Jewish names and moved to Israel for one reason: to proselytize Jews. This new strategy is illustrated by several recent media articles . . . about 'messianic Jews' who claim that they are discriminated against in Israel - a questionable accusation." [Caspari Center; Messianic Jews; Jerusalem Post, July 3; Haaretz, July 4, 2008 ]

-------------------------------
Hebrew Roots is comprised of Gentile Christians who want to be Jews. I have written a multi-page article published at:
on this belief system. In my article, I quote from Batya Wooten and reference Eddie Chumney. I was recently emailed the followind discourse about how this movement is affecting evangelism to Jews and ironically viewed as antiSemetic by the [real] Jews. Note: the term "messy" in context below refers to "Messianics"; however, this is not the traditional definition of a Jewish born person believing in Jesus as Messiah; the term below is defined as Gentile Christians who are referring to themselves as Jewish believers in context of the Hebrew Roots movement.

"...recently formed is the Worldwide Biblical Zionists - a new organization started by Eddie Chumney, a central figure in messy teaching and 2house theology, is coming to Israel to join with the Likud movement [political] and "unite Ephraim" with his older "brother, Judah". The MIA [Messianic Israel Alliance -2 house - NOT Jewish - Batya and Angus Wooten - neither are Jewish] of the USA is also involved in trying to accomplish this with letters to Israeli officials and all kinds of nonsense.

"...Judith Rood [she is Israeli and a citizen of Israel and the USA - guess why Michael married her, huh? - about 3-4 yrs ago - he is divorced of course], wife of Michael Rood - the most vile evil messy teacher I know, has begun "Lydia World Outreach Project" in Israel as well. Both the Chumney and Rood organizations are promoting taking care of the needy and persecuted messianics in Israel and are begging for lots of donations. Plus, there are tours from other messy camps coming for the feast of Tabernacles [Sukkot], which is a really big feast in Israel.

"...So I am thinking you might run into a few american wanna be Jews - just to give you a heads up. Of course these people think they are the literal "lost" tribes of Israel called Ephramites. The tribes were not lost, they were scattered and the term "Jews" is inclusive of ALL the tribes. Real Jews are not interested in tribal affiliation other than Levitical.

"...I have an attachment on Chumney's new posturing as the info came via email, please take a look at it because this is nationally connected to Israel.

"...Judith now has her own website. Michael is talking in the background [yuk]. He has teachings being aired on skyangel TV as well. They used to live in Israel, but now his office is in Michigan. I have heard rumors that they moved back to Israel but have no proof of that.

WORLDWIDE BIBLICAL ZIONISTS

Dear Mishpochah (family):

This e-mail concerns the plans to start a GLOBAL organization to be called, "Worldwide Biblical Zionists" at the invitation from World Likud in the land of Israel to work with Judah in the land to "build up Zion".

Also to announce a conference in North Canton, Ohio on August 2 regarding this subject.

A Biblical Zionist tour to Israel from November 8 - 18.

In April, I went to Israel for Passover. While in Israel, I met Joel Bell and Sagiv Assulin.

Joel Bell currently lives in Israel with his wife Pam. They have a ministry in Israel called: 'Frontline Israel'. Joel lives in Samaria in the Bibiical territory given to the tribe of Benjamin.

Sagiv Assulin is a member of the Likud political party in Israel.

Joel and Sagiv met while standing with the Jewish families of Gush Katif during the expulsion of Jews from the Gaza in August, 2005.

In January 2007, the Chairman of World Likud, Danny Danon appointed Joel Bell to begin the initiative to unite Bible believers all over the world to work with World Likud to "build up Zion".

World Likud is a non-profit organization established to promote the values of the Likud political party in Israel all over the world.

Joel Bell is on the Board of Governors of World Likud.

The World Likud website is located at:

http://www.worldlikud.com/default_en.asp

At the website, you can watch a 15 minute video interview that Joel Bell conducted with Chairman Danny Danon where Danny makes the invitation for Bible believers to work with World Likud to "build up Zion". It is located toward the bottom of the webpage. The caption reads:

"Interview with World Likud Chairman, Mr. Danny Danon".

The direct link to the interview is located at:

http://flisrael.wmod.llnwd.net/a841/o10/wezDanon.wmv

Since Joel's appointment by Chairman of World Likud, Danny Danon, Joel has been laying the groundwork in Israel to carry out this vision. This groundwork involved the following:

#1) Working with political leadership in Israel

#2) Working with leaders of Gush Katif to support Jewish families who were expelled from the Gaza Strip in August, 2005

#3) Working with business leaders in Israel

At this time, the groundwork in Israel has been laid. It is time to launch the vision to build a GLOBAL NETWORK of Bible believers who want to love and support the nation of Israel and "build up Zion".

The name of this organization to accomplish this task will be called: "Worldwide Biblical Zionists".

Within a year, we want to have 1 MILLION members of this organization.

Joel Bell will be the director of Worldwide Biblical Zionists.

Eddie Chumney of Hebraic Heritage Ministries Int'l will be working closely with Joel to build the network to accomplish this vision.

In the months ahead, we would like to build a GLOBAL TEAM of leaders who want to work to support the vision.

We will need leaders of countries, regions of countries and territories and states within countries.

Joel Bell and the Sagiv Assulin will be speaking at the "Restoration of the Kingdom" conference July 17-20 in Portland, Oregon at the Shilo Inn and Conference Center about the vision of "Worldwide Biblical Zionists" and how you can become an ACTIVE member.

Information about attending this conference can be found at:

Subject: Summer Hebraic Roots Conferences


Dear Mishpochah (family):

I would like to share with you some of the 2008 Hebraic Roots Conferences and events.
There are two special speakers from Israel who will be at the "Restoration of the Kingdom" conference in Portland, Oregon (July 17-20).

They are: Joel Bell and Sagiv Assulin
Joel Bell and his wife Pam have been serving the Jewish people in Israel for the past 17 years. They have stood with their brothers and sisters against the expulsion of Jewish families in Gush Katif. They have given their time, energy and finances to the building up of Zion and teaching the covenant that Elohim has with Abraham, Isaac & Jacob and their descendants to all those who are grafted in to the Olive Tree of Israel, by faith in Messiah Yahshua. In addition to helping the refugees from Gush Katif, Joel and Pam are standing on the front lines in Northern Samaria and Judea and literally laying down their lives for their brother Judah.

Sagiv Assulin is the “Leader of the Young” to the Likud Party in Israel. He is a former Commander in the Golani Unit of the IDF and is still a reserve officer in that unit. Sagiv has served as Advisor to the Minister of Health and is an advisor to leadership within the Likud. He has served as President to “The College Students of Israel” and holds two BA degrees and a Master ’s Degree in Law & Justice. Further, Sagiv has actively stood in opposition to the expulsion of Jewish families from Gush Katif.

These two special speakers will be sharing a "vision" regarding working with Judah in the land of Israel to "build up Zion". This will be your opportunity to meet them. At that time, an announcement will be made which will allow ALL Bible believers to participate in this "vision".

In order to accomplish the vision, we will be launching an organization to accomplish this "vision". The organization will be called: "Worldwide Biblical Zionists". The goal of the organization will be to unite 'Bible Believers' all over the world to become members and join the effort to "build up Zion" in the land of Israel. Please don't miss it.
