FAQs


What is We Ephraim’s statement of faith?

1.    We believe that Jesus is the Son of Almighty God the Father.  He came as the Messiah to become once and for all the perfect sacrifice as the Lamb of God. He died for all of mankind’s sin so that all that come to him would have eternal life. Three days after He died He was raised from the dead and now sits at the right hand side of the Father making intersession for all who have received Him.
2.    We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues separate from salvation.
3.    We believe in healing, deliverance, miracles, signs and wonders.
4.    We believe in the use of the five fold ministry and the function of each of these five offices within the church.
5.    We believe in the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
6.    We believe in the working of the spiritual gifts that the apostle Paul identified in 1 Corinthians the 12th chapter.

Who are Ephraim and Manasseh?

Joseph’s two sons.

Gen 48:1 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

Jacob blessed Ephraim and Manasseh.

Gen 48:14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
Gen 48:15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
Gen 48:16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

How do I know if I am an Ephraimite?

Usually your heart jumps when you hear the message. In all reality, it does not matter. Throughout scripture the stranger is clearly indicated as being accepted by God. One would have to consider during the Israeli Exodus out of Egypt, some of the Egyptians may have joined them. With the signs spoke of by Moses coming to pass, one would have to consider following the one who brought them.

Isa 56:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
Isa 56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

Who is Prophet Tom Deckard?

Prophet Deckard is a born again Jew that God has called to the office of the prophet. He has established over 160 churches around the world.  God called him to be a prophet sent to the nations and has prophesied to leaders and nations throughout the world.

Here are a few of the prophesies that God gave to Prophet Deckard which have come to pass:
•    Prophesied the coming of the AIDS Epidemic 2 years before it was discovered. He told the people that the government would try to cover it up but in the end they would have to reveal it.
•    Prophesied that Prime Minister Sandiford of Barbados would be resigning from office.
•    Prophesied that the cold war would end and the Berlin Wall would be no more, 1 year before it took place. He also prophesied that the threat during the cold war was not Russia; it would come from the Middle East.
•    Prophesied that the tornado activity in America would become greater than ever before known on record.
•    Prophesied that old diseases that the world thought had been eradicated would return and that they would become immune to our modern day medicines now being used.
•    Prophesied the flooding of the great Mississippi River 6 months before it occurred.
•    Prophesied the coming of the first war with Iraq [Desert Storm], and then prophesied that America would have to go back and finish the job at a later date.
•    Prophesied the beginning of the European Common Market and the struggle that they would have accomplishing the task.
•    Prophesied the events of 911 five years before it occurred.
•    Prophesied that the Islamic religion would become the fastest growing religion in the United States. This was in 1990, and today it is a known fact that this has come to pass.
•    Prophet Deckard has given signs to every nation that he has stepped foot upon that they might know God has sent a prophet unto them:
•    Prophesied that the four year drought would be broken in Central Africa three days after he departed from the nation. This occurred exactly as God had spoken.
•    In the Philippines he prophesied that a volcano which had been dormant for 500 years would erupt as a sign that God had sent him there. This occurred two years later.
•    Prophesied in Guyana, South America that flood waters would flow into the drinking water and thousands would become ill. This occurred shortly thereafter.
•    Prophesied a great drought would come upon the land of Madagascar. This occurred three months later.
These are a few of the prophecies that Prophet Deckard has been given by God.

An angel appeared to Prophet Deckard some twenty years ago and told him to blow the shofar horn and scream “Ephraim come home.” The angel appeared again two years ago and commissioned him to begin gathering the Lost Tribes and prepare them to go back to the land of Israel. Ephraim is being found all over North America and the world.

What is the plague I keep hearing about prophesied by Prophet Deckard?

The bird flu (H5N1) is one of the most closely monitored situations around the world today, yet few know very much about it.  Even the U.S. government has a planned strategy on what to do when (not if) it will hit the world on a pandemic level.  So far, those who contract the deadly virus will only have about a 30% chance of survival.
The bad news is millions of people will die, but the good news is you don’t have to be one of them.  The time to prepare is NOW!  Currently we don’t know when this pandemic will hit, we only know that it will.

Is there going to be a rapture?

There is not going to be a pre or post tribulation rapture.  A little girl having a dream, her pastor bring it forth as “the catching away” is not consistent with God’s Word in how He brings forth revelation.
Deu 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

God’s prophets speak His words and are the mouthpiece of the Father.
The rapture theory was never revealed through a tried and true major prophet of God. Any true prophet of God would know that the rapture theory only troubles their spirit.
1 Cor 14:32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

Is this part of the Messianic movement?

No. This is not part of the Messianic Movement. We are Ephraim. This is an end time movement guided by God according to God’s structure.

Did Paul say to do away with the Law or did he indeed keep the law?

Paul, being a Pharisee consented to his own death if he broke the law. Speaking and teaching against the law is breaking the law. As much as the church of that day wanted to stone him, they could not.
An in depth study reveals Paul kept the law and did not speak or teach against it. What he was teaching was Christ, the Messiah as an extension of God’s Holy Covenant.

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations.

Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Acts 24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

Acts 25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.

By reading the writings of Paul we know that he was not speaking against the law which leaves the reader with questions that must and are able to be answered.

Peter warned us about Paul that he, being so learned in the scriptures will speak over your head if you are unlearned.

2 Pt 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction

Is the Law a burden?

Deu 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
Deu 30:9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
Deu 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
Deu 30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
Deu 30:12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
Deu 30:13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
Deu 30:14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
Deu 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

Rom 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
************************************************************************************************************************

Is the Law a curse as we have been taught in the past?

The “curse of the law” means that the law in it of itself could not get you to heaven. The law was never intended to get one to heaven. The law is first, to get man rightly related to God and secondly, to get man rightly related to each other.
*********************************************************************************************
Are there false Prophets?

If prophets are moved by the Holy Spirit they are never wrong. That leads one to believe those that have been wrong are therefore not led by the Holy Spirit.
In short, real prophets do not miss with prophecy.

Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Jer 48:10 Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.
2 Pt 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Those that do prophesy falsely are either being led by their mind, their flesh or darkness itself.
**************************************************************************************************************
How do I deal with those prophets who do miss on their prophecy?

Ignore them. Pay no attention to them. On the other hand, if a prophet is consistently accurate we should be deathly afraid of the anointing put into their life.

Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
****************************************************************************************************************
Is Sunday the Sabbath?

God himself set aside the 7th day as the Sabbath.

Exo 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Exo 31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

Acts 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,

The Sabbath begins Friday evening until Saturday evening. A “Biblical Day” begins and ends at sunset rather than at midnight.

Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Lev 23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
*****************************************************************************************************************
Why do some spell it “G-d” instead of “God”?

Some feel that writing His name leaves an opportunity for the document to be destroyed one way or another and therefore destroying His name altogether. We neither judge those that use it or those that choose not to use it.
************************************************************************************************************************
Who are the children of God?

The children of God are those that keep the Holy Covenant and the testimony of Jesus.
Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Is new moon the same as a full moon?

The new moon and the full moon have nothing to do with each other. Many calendars have incorrect new moon dates. For correct dates, please visit www.jewishprophet.com/Itinerary.htm

Psa 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

Isa 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

Is it permissible in God’s eyes to celebrate Halloween?

We should ask ourselves, is keeping the festival of Sam Hein, the festival of death, the highest holy day of darkness pleasing the Father? Halloween is absolutely not pleasing to the Father but is seen as an abomination in the eyes of God.

1 Thes 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
Eze 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
Deu 7:26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
