This is the New Jerusalem story.
In our Holy Bible, the term New Jerusalem refers to both literal and figurative city that is currently being created in a sense that its inhabitants are still being processed by our Creator God. It is literal in a sense that it is referring directly to the present city of Jerusalem, which is full of abominations and idolatries brought upon by the Gentile nations on earth that have conquered it for many years. Yeshua (Jesus) had allegorically referred to the city of Jerusalem today as ‘Sodom and Egypt’ (Revelation 11:8).
“And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11:8, NKJV).
This verse relates to us the state of the city of Jerusalem at the time that the ‘two witnesses’ died. In spite of the awesome power that the two witnesses have, they would not be able to cleanse the city of all the idols and all types of abominations dwelling there. Would it be too much for them to remove Islam from atop Mt. Moriah?
The New Jerusalem in biblical prophecy speaks of the physical and literal reconstruction of the city that God had chosen to place His name. It is destined to become the throne of Elohim (God) on earth, which is the reason why it has been regarded as the navel of planet earth by the Jews. The city of Jerusalem shall be renewed quickly soon, as quick as quick as the prophecy written on Revelation 3:11, “Behold, I am coming quickly!”
In the book of Revelation, the New Jerusalem pictures the spiritual restoration and divine recreation of the worldly city of Jerusalem today. The renewal of the city of Jerusalem in the Holy Land of Israel would be accomplished through the true remnant of Israel and the elect of Israel that would be gathered by Yeshua from all the countries on earth. There is no one Christian Church organization that could do the cleansing of the city by their group alone. God had already chosen the Church that He would marry when He returns again as Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus) on earth. That Church is the children of Israel known also as the Chosen People of Israel.
Let me introduce who or what the New Jerusalem congregation is.
We are the literal and prophesied fulfillment of the Church in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13). We are so little and so small that we have already ceased to exist as a religious organization. But we still continue performing the work of God even up to this time.
In keeping with the commandments and teachings of Jesus Christ, as it is written, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS…”(Matthew 6:33, KJV), we wholeheartedly pursued the righteousness of God. God rewarded our effort in the year 2004 with the Torah or Law of Moses. Blessed be the Lord our God for He has fulfilled upon us what He had promised to our fathers in the wilderness and what Jeremiah the prophet had prophesied in his book. “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke though I was their husband, says the Lord. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (Jeremiah 31:31-33, Revised Standard Version).
God has already revealed to us the true nature of the Law of Moses. We have renewed the Marriage-Covenant that God has made with our fathers on Mt. Sinai. We are now in complete possession of the true teachings of God and Jesus Christ. God has already put His Law within our minds and within our hearts, as He has promised. It is in our heart because we love that Law that God had given to Moses. Understandably, we are keeping faithfully all of its commandments, statutes, ordinances and judgments. It is in our mind for we literally know what are the commandments and statutes written in the Law from the first commandments to the last 613th mitzvah (Hebrew word for commandment). We have studied the Torah exhaustibly just like our dear and beloved Jewish rabbis and sages.
Unlike the Christian people, we do not simply imagine the Law of God or the Torah as dwelling within our mind and within our heart. We do not fantasize as well that the Holy Spirit is dwelling within our mind and body. We know all of the commandments of God in the Torah for we are laboring in the study of all things written in the Law every day and every week. Our teachers are all Torah giants of Orthodox Judaism and we are sharing them to everyone here on earth.
We have the Shema as well.
“Shema Yisrael, Adonai eloheinu Adonai Echad. Baruch shem kavod malchuto le-olam vaed, Ve-ahavta et adonai eloheika bekhol levavka, ubekhol nafsheka, ubekhol meoydeka” (Devarim 6:4-5).
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5).
We are the true Church of God that is doing the work of God in this end of time. We are the prophesied Church in Philadelphia to whom Jesus Christ declared, “I will keep you from the hour of trial which is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell upon the earth” (Revelation 3:10, RSV). Wherever we are, Jesus will keep us safe from all kinds of dangers and troubles that will come upon the inhabitants of earth. This prophetic message of Jesus Christ is exclusively for the members of the New Jerusalem Congregation, and not for any one who happen to come across it in his bible study.
There are seven church eras in the history of the true Church of God. We are the generation that did the work of God in the era of Philadelphia from 1933 to 2003. The Church of God that fulfilled the marvelous work of God during the Philadelphia era was the Worldwide Church of God founded by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. We are part of that Church when it was the true Church of God that God is using in His work on earth. But we are not the same church that continues with its erroneous established doctrines.
We are the children of Herbert W. Armstrong that have taken our faith and religion to a much higher level. We have returned to the God of Israel and the true religion He had given to the chosen people of Israel. We are no longer living in the fantasy world of the Christian religion, nor are we part of Rabbinical Judaism. We certainly know what the Torah really is, and our connection with Rabbinical Judaism is a work of love. But we are the true religion of Judaism whose high priest is the Son of God or God himself. We have only one King and it is the Lord. We are the true religion of Judaism—Torah Judaism—and the Jewish rabbis are not our ordained leaders. They are all our beloved teachers though at least when it comes to Jewish religious practices, traditions and laws.
We love our fathers, indeed. We even look like them in appearance. And you can easily hate us for that for this present world is truly anti-Semitic.
But what if Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) also looks like us?
We Are Jewish
There are many religious organizations that have broken away from the apostate Worldwide Church of God. It just happened that we are the group that brought the end to both the Philadelphia and Laodicean eras. In the year of 2003 when we went out from that adulterous Church of God, the seven Church eras have officially ended. In that same year God has rejected and removed out of his mouth the Worldwide Church of God and all its splinter-Churches of God. Yet we still continue to work for the re-entry of our Gentile brethren into the commonwealth of Israel even up to this time.
We call that love.
The same thing that occurred to the rest of the seven Churches before the era of Philadelphia is happening or has already happened to all the former members of the true Church of God in both the Philadelphia and the Laodiceans eras. They are swiftly becoming extinct. Many of them have already died.
A Church of God is a true Church of God when God is using that Church in His marvelous and unbelievable work on earth. If the leaders and members of a Church that God is using are sinning and breaking the commandments, God will cease from working with that Church. Once that happens, the Church that used to be true will immediately become a false Church of God.
The Worldwide Church of God under the leadership of Joe Tkach Jr is a Church that God has already vomited out and removed from His presence. In similar way, the major splinter-Churches of God from the apostate Worldwide Church of God founded by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong have also been rejected by God and Jesus Christ. Their works have become an abomination before God in this end of time.
“The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness” (Proverbs 15:9).
Biblically speaking, the wicked people on earth today are the people who are not keeping and observing all of the 613 plus Commandments of God written in the Law of Moses. We are actually keeping more than 614 commandments of God written in the Law of Moses.
Many religious leaders from the Worldwide Church of God today are guilty of the sin of adultery and the sin of fornication. Take the late Garner Ted Armstrong as an example of what the leaders and ministers of the splinters from the WCG have become right now. They know nothing about the true righteousness of God and God is not with them anymore.
“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil” (Proverbs 16:2-6, KJV).
The New Jerusalem Congregation is a Sabbath-keeping Church of God. We do not cook on Sabbath day at this time. We have evolved spiritually already at a much higher plane of existence than all the people that believe in Him.
The New Jerusalem congregation is a true Church of God and very much part of the Church in the wilderness (Acts 7:38, KJV)—the Holy Nation of Israel. We are the true Church of God and Jesus Christ. We are part of the holy nation of Israel. We wear our crown proudly for God is watching over us.
We are Jewish.
We are the true remnant of the Church of God in Philadelphia era that has no need for the call of repentance by Abba the God of Israel and His Son, Jesus Christ. We are always in state of repentance. We are always seeking the righteousness of Adonai Eloheinu and His Kingdom.
We are Jews. We are Israelites. We are the holy firstborn children of Israel, the first fruits of Mt. Zion.
The Kingdom of God
We are the descendants of the lost people of Israel that God had scattered all over the world because our fathers had rebelled against God. Our fathers had turned away from the Law that God had given to Moses. That law is known today as THE TORAH OF MOSES.
We have spent 70 years of spiritual captivity in the religion of Mystery Babylon the Great—Christianity, in fulfillment of biblical prophecy, as it is written, “…That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to RETURN…Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken [listen] unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord: and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive” (Jeremiah 29:10-14, KJV).
We have continued and completed the course that God had directed the Church of God in Philadelphia era, which the late Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong had founded and started. The road to righteousness we followed faithfully until God, Blessed be His name, in His mercy came and lit up our path with His fiery Law.
We have seen the light. And that light is THE LAW OF MOSES.
We have seen the God that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had met and worshiped. We believe that God is Yeshua HaMashiach prior to His incarnation in the flesh. We believe there is another God besides Jesus Christ and He is higher in authority than Yeshua HaMashiach. We call God the Father as our Daddy or Abba in Hebrew. We believe Yeshua HaMashiach is also a Father to us in almost the same way we consider Abraham as our father as well.
Though we are small, little and insignificant in the eyes of our brethren, especially in the eyes of the whole world, God and Jesus Christ still lead and direct us and those who are with us. The path that we are taking is certainly true and sure, even if some of us have already stumbled and have fallen down.
Jesus is a Jew and those who can truly follow and keep His teachings are all the descendants of the lost and scattered people of Israel for the Mitzvot of Avinu Shebashamayim are not acceptable to the Gentiles. They hate the Law of God and want nothing to do with it. They also despise the Jewish people for they believe Adonai have chosen them as the replacement of the Jews.
Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be ONE FLOCK, one shepherd” (John 10:7-16, ESV).
The gospel of the Kingdom of God is commanded by Jesus Christ to be preached into all the inhabitants of this world. This should be done to bring back all the descendants of the lost tribes of Israel to the Lord our God and the Law of Moses. But it is not only the gospel of the Kingdom of God that Jesus Christ has commanded us to preach to all the people on earth. Jesus commanded us to preach also himself as the Promised Messiah of God to all the children of Israel. We are witnessing today for Jesus the anointed King of Israel, who is both God and man.
The fact is there is no forgiveness of sin for the Jewish people that keep the Torah except through Yeshua or Jesus. Jesus came on earth, sent by God the Father, to save the Jewish people that live under the Law of Moses. There is no salvation for the Christian people through Jesus, as it is written, because the Gentile people of the Christian religion despise the Torah of Moses openly. Only the unlearned and unbelieving Jewish rabbis believe that Jesus Christ had founded and started the counterfeit religion of Christianity.
Read the Holy Bible so you can discover the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Follow me for I follow only the head of the true congregation of Israel—Jesus Christ.
We preach Yeshua (Jesus) for Jesus also preached Yeshua (Jesus) to the Jewish people during His 3 and ½ year ministry.
When we follow Yeshua completely, in spirit and truth, we must obey and observe all the things that He had commanded His Church to do and follow. If Yeshua commanded us to do and teach the Law then by all means possible, let us do what the Law of Moses commands us to do. Let us teach the entire world what’s written in the Torah of Moses.
Join us in bringing the true teachings of God written in the Torah to all the inhabitants on earth.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall DO AND TEACH THEM, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:14-19, KJV).
The words above were said by Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach) before His own Jewish brethren. These words do not apply to the Christian people today for they are Gentiles and do not keep the Torah of Moses or the true teachings of Adonai (God). We are the light of the world for we are Jews like Jesus Christ and His faithful disciples at that time.
The Order of Melchizedek
We keep and observe the Law of Moses, and teach all the people of the earth how to observe and keep the 613-plus commandment Law of Moses, for it was God who made and created that Law, and Jesus Himself kept that same Law during His lifetime. Since Jesus is the Lord and King of Israel, and He is the same God that gave Moses that Law, He will certainly keep and enforce the Law of Moses during His millennial rule on earth. The blessings of God come in great abundance upon all the people who will keep and observe the 613 commandments of God written in the Law of Moses. They shall become the children of light and the children of God. They shall become like God.
We are supposed to be the replacement of the Aaronic Priests of the Most High God for our High Priest Yeshua is a priest after the order of Melchizedek. Those who truly follow the teachings and commandments of God and Jesus Christ can become part of us and part of our work. Yeshua the son of Joseph is the Promised Messiah of God to all of Israel. He has already replaced the priests from the lineage of Aaron from being the priests and servants of God. And we know Him also as the God of the Old Testament period.
As it is written, “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof” (Matthew 21:44, KJV).
You can find on this site the true teachings of God and Jesus Christ. If you want to become a member of the true Church of God—the Holy Nation of Israel—all you have to do is contact us. We will surely visit you when the time comes for the elect people of Israel to be gathered back to the land.
Remember this clearly, Jesus Christ is higher in rank and authority than all of the Jewish sages and rabbis for He is the Son of God and the Promised Messiah to all the people of Israel (12 tribes of Israel). He is also the God who communicated with the people of Israel in the Old Testament, even with Job. Jesus Christ is the same God in the Tanakh that promised the people of Israel there would no longer be any uncircumcised Gentiles walking at the Temple Mount in the World To Come.
Rambam and Ramban were nothing in comparison to Jesus of Nazareth. Rabbi Akiva was nothing in compare to Jesus. But the Jewish sages were a part of us for we do and follow what they taught us to do, in keeping with the commandment of Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:2-3. We need the Jewish rabbis for we need someone to teach and make us adhere to the laws and commandments of God. But there is nothing written in the Law of Moses that says the graves of our righteous teachers can make us holy and righteous as well.
Jesus implicitly said in Matthew 23:2-3 that we should do and observe what Akiva, Rambam and Ramban were teaching us about the Law of Moses but we should not imitate their unfaithfulness on the Son of Man or even follow their teachings that are not based in the Torah of Moses.
Through the New Jerusalem congregation you can be restored into the House of Israel and become a Jew physically and spiritually. Remember the God of the Jews and the God of the Israelites are with us. We are the descendants of the lost ten tribes of Israel and Rabbi Yeshua has brought us back to the true knowledge of God.
There is no such thing as spiritual Jew for if Jewishness cannot be seen and recognized in a person’s outward appearance today he or she is not really a Jew at all. The former members of the Worldwide Church of God and even the Messianic Jews are delusional and without true understanding when it comes to the true knowledge of God. There are many instances wherein the true teachings of God that many people have learned before were forgotten quickly when they encountered winds of doctrines made by men.
Conversion to Torah Judaism
The New Jerusalem congregation is not giving out or awarding Certificate of Conversion to any of its members without going through an Orthodox Beit Din. We lead people to the Kingdom of God that will be established soon in the Land of Israel. When the Temple of God is built again and standing on Mt. Moriah, the people that are affiliated with the New Jerusalem congregation can become the true priests and servants of Adonai who would be dwelling there with us.
May God open up your mind and help you receive what the man with the Spirit of God is saying now!
God bless all the children of Israel and the Gentiles as well who will live under the Law of Moses. “One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you” (Exodus 12:49). The book of Numbers also says, “One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you” (Numbers 15:16, KJV).
We are the true remnant of the Church of God during the era of Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13). In our 70th year of spiritual Babylonian captivity, the Lord our God, Blessed be Adonai Eloheinu, visited us and made us returned to the true religion of Judaism, which is what the true religion of the Hebrew today.
“Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon” (Zechariah 2:6-7, KJV).
For 70 years now, we hold on steadfastly to the Law of God which God had given to us through Moses. We continued observing them even in our captivity. In the year of 2003, the Lord Our God, Blessed be HaShem, visited us and brought us back again to the true religion of His own Son, Jesus Christ. We have become completely free from Christianity—the religion of Mystery Babylon the Great.
“For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest. Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, And her salvation as a lamp that burns. The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, And all kings your glory. YOU SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME, which the mouth of the Lord will name” (Isaiah 62:1-2, NKJV)
As the true remnant of the Church of God in Philadelphia, we have been given the title, which our Lord Yeshua HaMashiach/Jesus Christ has foretold in His very special message to the Philadelphians.
“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the Holy One, the True One, who has the key of David, who opens and no one shall shut, who shuts and no one opens.
“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie — behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and learn that I have loved you. Because you have kept my word of patient endurance, I will kept you from the hour of trial which is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell upon the earth I am coming soon; hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. He who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the NEW JERUSALEM which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches’ “(Revelation 3:7-13, RSV).
We are a Torah-observant Church of God, and we have the Promised Messiah of the God of Israel, as our Lord and King. We also have a Hebrew name for our little congregation just like most of the Jewish congregations on earth.
Get to know now Torah Judaism that is the true religion of the little flock of Jesus—the House of Judah. Learn how to worship God on Sabbath day, New Moon Day and the seven annual Holy Days of the Lord on their proper appointed times and days.
The New Jerusalem congregation under Rav Yeshua Ed has been proclaiming in the internet the gospel about the coming Kingdom of God in the land of Israel since 2003. However in 2011, God had taken away the power to preach the good news about the Kingdom of Israel in the internet from the New Jerusalem. It is like Adonai Eloheinu has simply stop giving the funding for His work through the New Jerusalem group at that time. If you would like to support this work of God at this end of times, you may simply contact Rav Yeshua Ed.
