The Ebionite Manifesto
The Ebionite Community is the living
continuation of the Jewish religious movement of
Jesus. Christianity is the religion of Paul and others, and not part of
the biblical faith and revelation of the God of Israel nor is it of Jesus.
(Please note that we have used "Jesus" to clarify for our Christian
readers. We call him Yeshua or Yahshua, and will use Yeshua from this
point on in the site.)
We declare the man Paul of Tarsus, the false
teacher against the mark of Covenant and God's Torah, to be outside of the
Way taught by Yeshua, the anointed, son of Maria and Yoseif. The Ebionite
Community is the only real "mission to the gentiles."
We call upon the gentiles to repent, to
abandon paganism and the perverse testament, and enter into true covenant
through Torah, circumcision, and immersion in order to submit and prepare
for the Reign of God as brothers exhibiting good works. (How can you talk
about accepting God or His "kingdom" at some future event or time if you
reject His rules clearly given now?)
To follow Yeshua, may he rest
in peace, you must not
worship him or any man, but instead be what Yeshua was, a Jew. Yeshua was a
man who died and was buried, and finding his bones does not effect the
value of many of his recorded teachings, the core of these still buried
beneath Christian additions, alterations, and falsifications. His value to
us has nothing to do with fairy tales and miracles, divinity or
resurrection. We already have the God of Israel so Yeshua is no replacement
for Him nor can Yeshua's words nullify God's commandments.
Yeshua is not a god, not a sacrifice for sin,
or savior. Such beliefs go against God. God's commandments have not been
"done away with" or "nailed to the cross" but instead make up the single
testament and Instructions for life to mankind. We ask you to
honestly consider the fruit of other religions without explaining away
their sins and failures to deliver a godly world; the millions of people
they have murdered for "God" even other denominations of their own
religion; and all the unbiblical ways in which they claim to honor their
god. Deep down you know that neither God or the man Yeshua can truly be
present in these religions. The God of Israel has more to give than
Christianity or Islam (both of which are just altered, weakened versions
of Israel's faith). Biblical faith has more to offer than any other
Is your faith based on a god
that hates you and wants to burn you? You need to keep seeking for the
real God, the God of Israel, Who created you and loves you.
Are you a Jew who has become
indistinguishable from your gentile friends and your Synagogue reminds you
of a church? Have you apostatized from God to Christianity? Return
to God. We will help you.
Yahwism, the faith of the Written Torah of the
by the One God, Yahweh, is a revolutionary system of life with justice that can
supersede all other systems of government and ideologies. The Evyonim
(Ebionites) are Yahwists above all else. It allows for One Ruler, the God of Israel alone,
with none beside Him. God is not man, and no man is divine. No man can
make you right with God except yourself, and only you can atone for your
sins through repentance and reparation to Him and your fellow man. You
will never find God, Yahweh King of the Universe, world within worlds,
worlds without end, in a church or shrine, kneeling before statues,
sticks, stones, or men. Tear down your church. Take the wood and stones
and build houses for the poor; take the sticks for firewood; sell the
treasure and idols to buy food and heal the sick; bring all
men in love to bend the knee to the God of Israel.
the beginning the followers of
Yahshua, Y'hoshua), may he rest in peace,
did not worship him or look to him for salvation. They did not turn away,
add or subtract from God's commandments (Torah). They worshipped only the
God of Israel. In a time when too many of the Jewish elite were conforming
to gentile practices and abandoning or compromising the simple laws of God,
living off of exploitation of the poor as gentiles do, Yeshua came with a
message from God. Like the prophets before him, he identified the sinners,
called for repentance and the return (reform) to Torah as a way of
righteousness and justice.
covenant teaches, to ignore God's covenant instructions (Torah) would bring
apostasy, economic collapse, destruction, and exile to his People, as it had
in the past. The priesthood and the high priest (appointed by the gentile
occupation force of Rome) had failed to be the religious leaders they were
charged to be. The king was a puppet of evil Rome, and had adopted pagan
values and its pursuit of wealth built on the backs of slaves and the poor.
was god and the rich exploited the lower classes to gather offerings to
themselves. Some Pious Jews (Pharisees) tried to keep Torah by
accommodating it to allow living Jewish under the boot of gentiles until
all their effort went to making new laws to study. Some Jews went to the
wilderness, escaping into a world mythological explanations and
remedies, waiting for the inevitable collapse (Essenes). Some became
freedom fighters (or terrorists) against the Romans and gentiles. Many
wished for a messiah that would show them the way to end pagan
domination, usually through armed resistance.
Yeshua pushed the veil of this world
aside to see and teach that there is only God, His Covenant, and People
of that Covenant, and that this relationship could be restored at any
time. It waited in the wings, ready to burst forth whenever people would
accept God's Reign instead of corruptible kings, priests, and retainers
of the gentile status quo driven by wealth and exploitation.

He tried to show that if God's Torah was
internalized―the Covenant renewed and written on the heart―and all other
authority was rejected as invalid, and illegitimate, then coercion,
violence, greed, exploitation, injustice, falseness, and even government
would fall away like scales from our eyes. The blessings of the Covenant
would be realized, Israel would become the light to all the gentiles, and
they too would turn to the God of Israel. In this way, every man would be
anointed by God, as he was, and the spirit of holiness―the heart opened to
the Creator of the universe and to His good creation, world within world,
world without end―would guide us to repair the world and be partners with
God, tending the world like a garden. This man, Yeshua, the son of Yoseif
and Maryam, was a prophet who proclaimed God and His way to save us from a
planet outside of a relationship with God, was embraced by many of the
exploited poor ('evyonim) crying out for God's justice. After his
anti-authority teachings made him a threat to the authoritarian rule of
Rome, he was arrested and executed as most insurrectionists were. His
movement continued after his death, led by a few close followers and his
brother Ya`aqov (James) in economic cooperative communities remembering
and honoring Yeshua as their anointed teacher, prophet, and martyr. This
was a Jewish movement in every way. (And the Ebionites of today are still
biblically observant Jews, circumcised according to Covenant with God.)

But then something happened. We can never be quite sure how it came about
whether due to guilt, psychosis, the desire to bring a merger of Jewish
and gentile culture (Hellenism), a pagan reinterpretation of scripture,
induced hallucinations (or visions), as a scheme to pacify Yeshua's
movement by the Romans, or simply ignorance of scripture, or a combination
of all of these. But as a result came Christianity, a religion devised by
Paul of Tarsus and his followers as a direct perversion of Yeshua's
movement and an attack on Israel and its God. One need only look at
Christianity's pagan theology and syncretistic practices, and its history
of persecution of God's Chosen People, and insatiable hunger for souls,
nations, and wealth; the ruthless imposition of its religious authority;
its imposed censorship of any view but its own; the millions, and millions
of dead sacrificed to its god, and know that the Christian religion is not
Today the Ebionites are
informing people who care about the true mission of Yeshua, and about
the false system of belief introduced by Paul of Tarsus and other deceivers,
and the culture that has grown up around their lies. We are not rabbinic, or Qaraite, nor
messianic, but respect all forms of Yahwism (that is, the monotheistic faith in God
Name is Yahweh). In fact, we encourage Jews to remain Jews, but we instruct
seeking gentiles to attach themselves to the Yahwistic Faith of Israel
whether it be Ebionite, rabbinic, or Qaraite type. (And many have done
just that!) We extend the fringe of our tallits to gentiles who seek
the God of Israel and His holy Torah, and we defeat the Christian
disciples of Paul who missionize Jews and others.
Ebionites are not gnostic; don't be misled by the
Our approach is to show
that Yeshua, may he rest in
peace, was a good man, and righteous man who wanted to bring social
reform, repentance, conversion, and thus bring the Messiah and Reign of
God—not a pagan god-man human sacrifice. Such nonsense is the antithesis
of everything for which Yeshua taught and stood. We do not say this to
condemn any other religion. Nor do we believe that the adherents of other
religions are "damned." Instead, we want to repeat Yeshua's message of
repentance in preparation of the imminent day in which God will rule and all
will be blessed. Christianity and Islam are not faiths of God. But
Christianity and Islam can, with God's mercy, become processes in which
gentiles can learn about God and advance to the Yahwistic Faith. As
religions in their own right, great evil is done by them. For example, the deaths of
millions of Jews, and others, including the attempted genocide of the
holocaust, are the direct result of Christianity and Christian culture. Some
Muslims would perpetrate a new holocaust if left unhindered. The remedy for
such evil is the end of both Christianity and Islam.
fought against the hypocrites claiming to represent God during his own time.
He spoke for victims and was one himself, and continues to be as his message
is perverted by Christians who impersonate Yeshua's followers in order to serve the powerful and victimize the
ignorant. But Yeshua's message is that 'God alone will rule; turn to God.'
We fully believe the message of the Prophets
who preceded Yeshua:
The gentiles (including Christians) will turn
away from their idolatry and sin to acknowledge God and His servant Israel.
YHWH, our only savior, through His
will reign over a world of peace and understanding.
Torah will be written on the hearts of all and
observed with justice and loving-devotion.
The meek will indeed inherit the earth
and the exploitation will end.
