"If I shut up the heavens and there is no rain; if I command the locusts to ravage the land; or if I let loose pestilence against My people, when My people, who bear My name, humble themselves, pray, and seek My favor and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear in My heavenly abode and forgive their sins and heal their land."    II Chronicles 7:13-14

The latter days of the 20th century were perilous times and these early days of the 21st century are treacherous. The comparatively orderly world system of two opposing superpowers has given way to a world fraught with the danger of terrorism and loss of freedoms.

An iron fist in Moscow had controlled the eastern block of the Soviet Union. Many nations and nationalities were subdued behind the Iron Curtain. The ancient hatreds of these subdued nations for each other were kept in check. Ethnic and national stirrings, as well as antigovernment activities, were crushed and not tolerated. Human rights were nonexistent and the power of the secret police was everywhere. Poverty of the working class was paramount. Even with all of this governmental abuse, there was a stability and peace, of a sort albeit at the cost of the loss of human rights.

The western block emerged from World War II led by a strong and powerful United States of America. Human rights, integrity, personal, and religious freedoms were the hallmarks of America. The highest standard of living the world has ever seen was obtained and flaunted before the rest of mankind. The United States is envied, emulated, and hated by the world.

For peaceful purposes, the United States poured out trillions of dollars in foreign aid to nearly every nation on earth, even to its sworn enemies. This was done in an attempt to buy the friendship and love of the nations of the world but, Scriptures states these are "hired lovers." This is a fulfillment of an ancient prophecy:
Hosea 8:9 For they have gone up to Assyria, Like a wild donkey alone by itself; Ephraim 1 has hired lovers." 2

Since friendship and love cannot be purchased, the world has continued to hate the United States while taking its money and plotting its downfall.


The Soviet Union crumbled in the fall of 1989 and has degenerated into a mass of feuding, warring nations as the ancient hatreds emerge to the forefront. Then the area of the former Yugoslavia threatened to embroil the world in yet another world war. Now the Middle East seems is a powder keg with a short fuse and it seems that this will be the trigger for the next and final war.

The United States has lost the "pride of its power" (Lev 26:19) because they have spurned their CREATOR and rejected His way. Therefore, He says to Israel that their enemies:
Ezek 16:41 "...shall burn your houses with fire, and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women; and I will make you cease playing the harlot, and you shall no longer hire lovers."

There is a movement afoot in the United States and Europe to establish a one-world government to bring harmony out of this chaos we see around us. In the process, the once proud nations of Israel will be subdued by forces from within and without and will again go into captivity. 3 These events will culminate in the appearances of the Messiah (Mashiach) and the establishment of the government of our SOVEREIGN CREATOR on the earth. 4 Then there will finally be peace on earth and goodwill among men.

On the Religious Front

There is confusion in the three main religions of the world--Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. All three claim to have descended from Abraham and use the ancient Hebrew Scriptures. 5 Each of these religions are vastly different from each other and each has its own "inspired" set of writings which all differ from each other and supersede the Hebrew Scripture text in the paradigm of each group.

Our purpose is not to prove or to disprove any of the "inspired" books which claim Abraham as the beginning of their religion, but simply to point out that they are all at variance with the Hebrew Scriptures. There is confusion in the three main religions of the world--Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. All three claim to have descended from Abraham and use the ancient the Hebrew Scriptures, yet each of these religions are vastly different from each other. Furthermore, each has its own "inspired" set of writings which all differ from each other and each one supersede the Hebrew Scripture text in the mind set or paradigm of each group.

Judaism

The Jewish people follow the main tenets of the Torah but they also have and follow the Talmud. The Encyclopedia Britannica states:
"The Talmud, the great rabbinical thesaurus which grew up during the first four to six centuries of the Christian era, and with the Old Testament, became the 'Bible' of the Jews. The Talmud consists of the Mischnäh (Heb. '[Oral] repetition, teaching'), a systematic collection of religious-legal decisions developing the laws [to follow] of the Old Testament." 6

In Jewish eyes their own special books can and do supersede the Torah. Once while I was attending a Jewish Sabbath, service the topic of the speaker was "wearing fringes [Heb. tsiytsith]." 7 The speaker stated, "Fringes must contain a blue thread on the hem of a person's outer garment." He then said, "But, in the Talmud the Rabbis decided not to include a blue thread in the fringes; which I might add," he said, "is contrary to the Torah." 8 The prayer shawl I was given to wear had no blue in its white tassels.
Right or wrong Judaism has a separate book, the Talmud, which in their mental paradigm does supersede the Hebrew Scriptures.

Islam

The Encyclopedia Britannica states:
"The Koran is the sacred Book of Islam, on which the religion of more than two hundred million Mohammedans is founded, being regarded by them as the immediate word of 'God'." 9

On the subject of Scriptural characters in the Koran notice what the Britannica states:
"These histories are chiefly those of the Old Testament, but the deviations from the Biblical narratives are very marked. Many of alterations are found in legendary anecdotes of the Jewish Haggada and the New Testament Apocrypha."10
Right or wrong Islam has a separate book, the Koran, which in their mental paradigm does supersede the Hebrew Scriptures.

Christianity

While the Christian community places some value in the Hebrew Scriptures, their greater focus is on the New Testament (NT). As a past member of several different Christian churches I have been taught all my early life the "New Covenant" of the NT completely did away with the "Old Covenant" of the OT and thus all the Laws and Commandments of the Torah are null and void. In fact, I was told "the law was nailed to the cross with 'Jesus'." In any conflict with OT, the NT will be granted preference.

In addition my former Sabbath keeping Christian church would pick and choose and take things out of context to formulate doctrines. They pulled Isa 28:10 out of context:
"Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little."

It was used completely out of context to prove that it was okay to take things out of context -- when the very context of those verses warned not to take things out of context, because:
Isa 28:13 That they might go and fall backward, and be broken and snared and caught."
Right or wrong Christianity has a separate book, the New Testament, which in their mental paradigm does supersede the Hebrew Scriptures.

Of the Mormons, a subset of Christianity The Encyclopedia Britannica states:
"The Church of 'Jesus Christ' of Latter-Day Saints commonly known as Mormons, a religious sect founded by Joseph Smith. ...He said that the angel Moroni appeared to him three times, and told him that the Bible of the western continent, the supplement to the New Testament, was buried on a hill called Cumorh, now commonly known as Mormon hill." 11

The Mormons claim that both the OT and the NT were corrupted over time, and in any conflicts, The Book of Mormon takes precedent.
Right or wrong, the Mormons have a separate book, The Book of Mormon, which in their mental paradigm does supersede the Hebrew Scriptures.

Purpose of This Offering

Nowhere is there an apparent group of people who look ONLY to the Hebrew Scriptures as the single revelation from the CREATOR of mankind without an extra appendage book that supersedes the original writings.

We believe that the Hebrew Scriptures stand alone as the sacred word of the CREATOR of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. As such we feel it is our obligation to ferret out the doctrines of the CREATOR as found within the Hebrew Scriptures and to make them available to Israel.

We believe the United States, most of the former British Commonwealth of Nations, and most of the democracies in Europe have descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. These nations are the lost ten tribes of Israel and are referred to by the name of Israel. The nations of Israel also include the Jews who are the House of Judah.

The mission of United Hebrew Congregation (UHC) is to support, encourage, and educate those individuals whom Name YHWH (ETERNAL CREATOR) has called to the understanding that He is the one true Mighty One of Israel who created the heavens, seas, dry land, and all that in them is.

We feel it is our obligation to tell the peoples of Israel who they are, tell them what ETERNAL states is wrong with what they do, and then warn them to return to the ONE true CREATOR.
