Selah Music – James Block

Pete Rambo reports that talented musician James Block, who has put the Psalms to music that he features on his youtube channel, is showering blessings upon the delegates this weekend in Shomron (Sameria) as they worship and fellowship in preparation to meet officially tomorrow for the first Ephraimite Congress. You will adore his awesome song: First Born.

And here is a link to his playlist of  18 songs:



Do All Roads Lead to September?

Considering Al’s extensive background in military intelligence, his knowledge of world history, and his track record as a dedicated prayer warrior, we would do well to look into these developments.


"Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" Viktor M. Vasnetsov“Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”
Viktor M. Vasnetsov

Is the world as we know it about to change?  How is it about to change?  And when is this change going to happen?

To the first question I respond with an unqualified yes.  To the second I can only say, “In ways that no one expects – not even the most careful and prayerful observers.”  Regarding the third question, I submit that it is changing even now.  As a historian, political scientist, and former military professional, I can assert that the global political, economic, and military system of planet is undergoing a massive realignment such as has not occurred since World War I, and most likely not since the advent of the modern nation-state system in the 17th century.  That is the subject of two blog series published byThe Barking Fox in 2014 (“When Empires Die:  Thoughts…

Fox Byte 5775 #34: Bamidbar (In the Wilderness)


In Surrender of Santa Anna, artist William Huddle portrays the dramatic end of the Texas Revolution with a wounded Sam Houston accepting the surrender of Mexican general Antonio López de Santa Anna.  Houston is remembered for his role in establishing modern Texas, but few remember his identity as a Cherokee.In Surrender of Santa Anna, artist William Huddle portrays the dramatic end of the Texas Revolution with a wounded Sam Houston accepting the surrender of Mexican general Antonio López de Santa Anna. Houston is remembered for his role in establishing modern Texas, but few remember his identity as a Cherokee.

WasSam Houston a Cherokee?  It is a fair question.  The man who won independence for the Republic of Texas at the Battle of San Jacinto had spent many years with the Cherokee nation.  His first contact with the tribe occurred in his youth, when his family moved from their home in Virginia to Tennessee.  He learned their ways and their language, was adopted by a chief of the tribe, and in time represented the Cherokee people to the United States government.  Houston even took a Cherokee wife: Tiana Rodgers, daughter of a Scottish trader who had married…

Community and the Regathering of Ephraim

In 2012 I felt led to ask Abba for the privilege of living in a Torah-based community. Those prayers were answered in a small way when our friend, Nancy, asked Elizabeth and me to share her home in Morganton NC. Every time life we find it necessary to be away from home for a night or two, upon our return home we find ourselves overwhelmed with joy and thanksgiving for the safety and comfort of an environment where Abba’s instructions are received and followed with delight. We three grandmothers count ourselves the most blessed people who have ever lived on the planet because we do not have people in our face every day telling us that we are wrong in embracing the whole of Scripture as instruction for life and blessing. We thank God that as we set ourselves apart unto Him, He made a way for us to be truly set apart unto each other. Now, thanks to Ken, Hanoch, Ephraim, Al, Pete, and others, it appears that we may have an opportunity at some point to be part of a larger community, if not in THE LAND, then, perhaps, in a community of like-minded people. For this my heart pants!


Some would call it synchronicity, I would point to the Ruach (Spirit).  This week has pulled together several very interesting threads that I’d like to share.

En GediFor years, we have desired to live in community with like-minded Torah pursuant followers of Yeshua.  In fact, even before we began keeping the Feasts of Yehovah, the doorway through which we became aware of all of our Father’s commands, we were in regular conversation with some friends bantering ideas about how to come together in community.  I was raised on the missionfield in Colombia, SA living in a community of 60 or so families on several hundred acres hued from the jungle.  To me, the Biblical model has always been a close-knit body of believers functioning as a clan or family.

Recently, I have read and been promoting Al McCarn‘s new book, Give Me A Place Where I May Dwell in preparation…

31 March 1492 Ferdinand and Isabella’s Edict of Expulsion – the Alhambra Decree #otdimjh

On This Day In Messianic Jewish History


The year 1492 is most often associated with Columbus and his discovery of America. But another event of tragic proportions developed that year. It gave the world the Sephardic Jews (so called because Sepharadh was a region of Spain where many Jews had settled). [from]


By 1492, Spain, under Ferdinand and Isabella had just emerged as a defender of the Roman Catholic faith. The marriage of the two rulers eventually united Aragon and Castile, although while she lived, Isabella did not yield her authority to her husband. In Granada, the pair defeated the Islamic Moors, who had long controlled Spain. Spurred on by the cruel Grand Inquisitor Torquemada, Ferdinand and Isabella felt they must remove all heretics and non-Christians from their land in order to purge it of pagan influences and firmly establish the Christian faith.


The fires of the Inquisition had already roared in Spain for twelve long…

10 March 1896 Theodore Herzl meets Protestant Clergyman and Christian Zionist William Hechler #otdimjh

Passing on this amazing post! Reverend William Hechler dramatically affected the course of development of the Jewish state.

On This Day In Messianic Jewish History


Reverend William Henry Hechler (10 January 1845 – 31 January 1931) was a Restorationist Anglican clergyman, eschatological writer, crusader against anti-Semitism, promoter of Zionism, aide, counsellor, friend and advocate of Theodor Herzl as he developed his vision and plans for the return of the Jewish people to the Land. He was “not only the first, but the most constant and the most indefatigable of Herzl’s followers”, according to Paul Merkely – The Politics of Christian Zionism 1891-1948.


Herzl records a meeting with Hechler on 10 March 1896 in his diary:

‘The Reverend William Hechler, Chaplain of the English Embassy here, came to see me. A sympathetic, gentle fellow, with the long grey beard of a prophet. He is enthusiastic about my solution of the Jewish Question. He also considers my movement a ‘prophetic turning-point’ – which he had foretold two years before. From a prophecy in the time of…
