Who is Don Esposito?

Esposito is bringing a group of Ephraimites to Israel on Wednesday May 27, 2009 which will include a "Welcome Home Ephraim" ceremony. He has taken Joel Bell's place as the Ephraimite leader in Israel, from what I can tell. He is working hand in hand with Sagiv Assulin. Ephraim and Judah together again. I am not sure what happened with Joel other than the tidbit on him being involved with a project with the government of Israel and the King of Nigeria. The following quotes give some insight into what kind of person Esposito is

Esposito on Rabbi Akiva and "Rabbinic Judaism"

.....This is when a man called Akiva (or Akiba) came on the scene and set up what is today modern Rabbinic Judaism. In modern Judaism the oral writings of the rabbis are much more important than even the torah and most of these writings come from Akiva. The Talmud is filled with stories of how great Akiva was. There are stories of every great man of the bible praising Akiva, even such great men as Abraham and Moses and even Adam in the garden of Eden talked about how great Akiva was. Clearly these are fairy tales and made up by Akiva himself.

Akiva made the rabbis into gods and gave all authority not only in earth but heaven also to the rabbis. Akiva was also the one who wrote that Yahweh is merely one of 70 rabbis and must submit to the will of the rabbis.

Akiva was also the one who named Simon Bar Kochba as the Messiah in 132 CE. Akiva saw that many Jews were accepting Yahshua as the promised Messiah and knew he had to do something to stop the movement, so he named Bar Kochba as the messiah, well knowing that believers of Yahshua could not fight in a holy war for a false messiah. The punishment for not fighting against the Romans was imprisonment, confiscation of property and also death.

Akiva set up a 4-man tribunal against believers with himself at the head, and sentenced many of our Jewish brothers and sisters to death. This is why by the second half of the second century CE, there were very few Jewish believers left in society. Akiva also wrote evil lies about Yahshua and called him everything from a warlock to a bastard, to a liar. All this is written in the Talmud.

In modern Judaism, Akiva is acclaimed as the greatest rabbi of all time and is worshipped by his rabbinic followers. No wonder there is so much hatred for Yahshua among orthodox followers today. I am sorry to say that modern rabbinic Judaism is a false second century religion made up by an evil man named Akiva.
There are many books such as Dan Gruber’s Rabbi Akiva’s Messiah that can easily confirm these facts as accurate, but the best source to verify these things is to go to the Talmud and the Mishnah themselves and see the evil lies that are said about our King Messiah Yahshua the Son of Yahweh.

This article is not to attack rabbinic Judaism but to show that the origins of it are not scriptural. Certainly when you read the oral law a child can see that it does not go back to Moses but is filled with inaccuracies and fairy tales. In a time when many believers are coming out of paganized Christianity and are naively thinking that rabbinic Judaism is the ancient religion of the bible, the truth must come out.

Even worse, we know of some that are even converting to rabbinic Judaism to be able to stay in the land of Israel. The whole problem of why Yahshua had so many problems with the Pharisees was that of authority. Yahshua claimed full authority from heaven: “Mat. 28:18 And coming up Yahshua talked with them, saying, All authority in heaven and on earth was given to me.”

Quotes from his Doctrinal Statement

We believe Yahweh to be a family name consisting of Yah, Yahweh the Father, and Yahshua Yahweh his Son. We believe them to be two separate beings, but are one in thought, mind, and love by the Holy Spirit. Gen 1:26, and Gen 19:24, shows this duality of beings. Deut 6:4, also states "Yahweh Elohim, Yahweh Echad" (united, supreme). This word echad in the Hebrew shows a duality of Yahweh. We believe that Yahweh the Father is greater than Yahshua the Son, (Jn 5:30, Matt 19:7) in both power and Authority, but commands us to honor Yahshua as we honor him (Jn 5:23).

We believe Yahshua to be the Messenger of Yahweh in the Tanach (Old Testament) Is 42:1, Ex 3:2, Gen 18:1-33 Ps 110 1:7 Ps 45:1-8, Ps 2:1-7, and also the very Son of Yahweh (Pr 30:4). The Hebrew word "Malak" which is translated into English in most cases as Angel, literally means Messenger. Even men are referred to as Malaks (2 Sam 11:19). Yahshua was the Malak or Messenger of Yahweh, but is not an Angel (Heb 1:5,13) but is also Elohim (Jn 1:1-13).

If this isn't idolatry then I don't know what is.

Only by accepting the blood of Yahshua to pay our death penalty can we be saved.

We believe and observe Yahweh's Sabbath day, as honoring Yahweh and Yahshua as creators of the universe, and believe it to be a sign of Him and His children (Ex 31:12-19). We also honor His Holy appointments with us in Leviticus the 23rd chapter, as they show His redemptive work He is doing with mankind through the blood of His Son.

and this guy claims he is not a xian

A true believer will be a slave to Yahshua, and will share his salvation with others (2 Cor 5:14-21).

So much for non-proselytizing.

We believe that Yahshua is returning to earth for a literal 1000 year reign, and His kingdom will continue forever. We believe those faithful, will be resurrected from the dead, and will reign with Him as Kings and Priests on the earth (Rev 5:10). The wicked will receive eternal damnation. At His return, He will also unite both The House of Judah and the House of Joseph into one (Ezek 37). We believe that the Father is still working with the Nation of Israel, and as believers should be focusing on calling back the lost sheep of the House of Israel. When someone of the Nations comes to faith in Yahshua and is immersed in water he also becomes part of the seed of Abraham and an heir of the Kingdom.

In other words once you become a xian you are part of the "nation of Israel" and inherit the land of Israel which was promised to Avraham.

This is the ultimate replacement theology. Instead of the church replacing Israel, they are Israel or aleast 10/12ths of it.

Sagiv Assulin and the Ephraimites

Don Esposito is a former Roman Catholic now Ephraimite. He lives in Israel with his wife Petra and runs a bible studies school on Kibbutz Ginosar called Hayachad.

Our curriculum is made up of classes such as The Covenants of Israel, Messianic Apologetics, Early Christianity, becoming the complete believer, functional thinking, Leadership and all from a Hebraic mindset.

At Hayahad, Biblical archeology is the cornerstone to proving to the skeptic the truth of scripture. We have had some of the top archeologists in Israel such as Avner Goren, Gaby Barkai, Danny Herman as lecturers at our school. Our students will also be blessed to see first hand ancient pottery, glass and other pieces of antiquity and to visit the ancient sites of actual digs.

Our goal at Hayahad is not only to teach our students to understand the scriptures but how to truly live by them. We are committed to get our students away from thinking from a western Greek mindset and thinking like an ancient Israelite. To this end we will have seminars on Aramaic origins of the New Testament, so students can start to understand the NT in its native aramaic tongue. We will be focusing on teaching men how to be leaders in their communities and women on how to be modest holy women, like Sarah of old. So many people will spend years of their life going to worldly learning institutions to learn secular skills that most will not even be used in the Kingdom age, don’t you think it is worth this short time to learn skills that you will take into our Heavenly Father’s Kingdom?

Esposito has teamed up with Sagiv Assulin and other Knesset members to form the B'nai Ephraim program.

Excerpt from May newsletter

Our dear friend and guest speaker Sagiv Assulin, who will be a member of the newly forming Israeli government spoke in Houston about the B’Nai Ephraim program that we will be starting in Israel.

Due to time restraints, Joel Bell will not be able to be an active part of the program and I have been chosen by the Israeli leadership to be the head sponsor of the program. Joel is going to be working on a big project that the Israeli government will be performing with Africa and actually hosted the King of Nigeria a few weeks back. Joel will be an advisor to me and I greatly appreciate his friendship and effort that he has put out to open the doors that Yahweh is using for us to walk through.

We have posted on our website the objectives for the B’Nai Ephraim program and also the subsidiary program that we will work through called “Partnering with Israel”. This will be the first test of B’Nai Ephraim to show our brother Judah our worth for building up Zion and will consist of helping with humanitarian needs that are most pressing in Israel and also that will help Yahweh’s elect there.

We are also working on setting up some exchange programs for some of you to come and volunteer in the land. I will personally be working with Sagiv Assulin and other Knesset members that will be named to working on this venture.

They are bringing a tour of Ephraimites for Shavuot and will have an official welcome home Ephraim ceremony.

We are living in these exciting days. Things are starting to develop for the right conditions for Yahweh to start this great re-gathering. In con-junction with the ending of Israel’s captivity and the preparation for their homecoming, we are sponsoring a gigantic Homecoming celebration this next Shavuot 09.

We will have an official homecoming welcome from a government official who will speak to the returning pilgrims and welcome them here. We will also have a march of all the returning pilgrims in the very first land that the 12 tribes originally entered in the Golan Heights region. We plan on having banners from all 12 tribes to participate in this march for a united Israel.

A few things you should know about the B'nai Ephraim program

"Statement of Purpose: To help educate believers in Yahshua to the requirements that it will take to come to the Land of Israel with the purpose of building up the Nation of Israel with our brother Judah."

"....Its sole purpose is to work toward recognizing the tribes of Israel and for preparing and securing the promised land of Israel."

That is preparing and securing the promised land for "their" return.

Don Esposito along with Joel Bell and other Ephraimites have given donations to Sagiv Assulin because they believe he will use his political position to pass legislation to allow for "Ephraimite" aliyah.

"I want to personally thank each and every person that donated and actively took a part in helping to bring into power people who believe in the Torah and want to keep Israel united and want to help to start to bring Ephraim home. I can’t tell you how much Segiv and Joel Bell and some of the others appreciated our efforts, and if someone still would like to donate in the next 2 weeks as there is a fairly large deficit still to make up, you can by either going to www.sagivassulin.com or by sending us a check and telling us it is for the campaign.
These people are not affiliated with the Orthodox, but do fully believe in the Torah and the promises of Yahweh to the nation of Israel."



Enough is Enough

Why do Jews insist on making alliances with xians? It is the new fad. You have government leaders tripping over each other to get the attention of American xians in particular. It is disgusting. Why are they doing this other than the obvious reason of being Erev Rav and wanting to destroy the Jewish people and Judaism by mixing it with xianity? It's all about the money, da dum dum ditty dum dum.

The International Israel Allies Caucus Foundation is having its 2009 Gala celebration.

The International Israel Allies Caucus Foundation (IIACF) is pleased to annouce the 2009 Gala in celebration of Israel's independence on May 3rd and 4th in Washington, DC at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

A closing "Call to Prayer" and worship event for Christian leaders.

This historic event offers Christian and Jewish leaders the opportunity to interact with international parliamentarians on key issues related to the right of Israel to exist in peace within secure borders. Your voice is essential to provide a Biblical perspective on support for Israel. Confirm your attendance today and add your voice to an internationally unified chorus of support for the people and land of Israel!

There is letter to attendees on the website by Benny Elon in which he states

As Christians and Jews we face a shared destiny in the status of peace in the Middle East.

Christians and Jews have no shared destiny in anything.

This day's need is for Christians and Jews to link arms in the support of Israel and to offer parlimentarians and policy-makers new and real solutions. I call upon you to join an international movement to promote Judeo-Christian values and defend the territorial integrity of the Land of Israel.

There is no such thing as Judeo-Christian values. What is referred to as Judeo-Christian values are actually Jewish values that Christians stole and claim as their own, but are willing to share the credit. The fact that so-called religious Jews take Torah ideals and give xians (partial) credit for them is appalling. What is even more unbelievable is that these same Jews use the Torah for a basis to make friendships and alliances with idolators. Israel is not their homeland and they should have no say whatsoever in what happens here. They have no business being briefed and courted by goverment leaders. Very soon, our so-called xian friends will be our worst enemies and because of how some Jews have invited them into our home they will be able to hurt us even more.
