How to become a Jew (Ester 8:17)
- If you have entered the Noachide Covenant (Gen. 9:1f) and have
accepted Messiah then you are already betrothed to YHWH and you have
But we at the Worldwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim would like to
invite you to take the next step and become part of the bride of YHWH,
We want to invite you to join the Assembly of Israel, the Body of Messiah.
In the book of Numbers we read concerning Am-Yisrael:
From the top of the rocks I see him,
And from the hills I behold him:
Behold it is a people (AM) that shall dwell alone,
and shall not be reckoned among the nations (GOYIM)
In fact one major difference between these two Hebrew words for
"people/nation" is that AM can refer to Israel but GOY refers to the
OTHER nations. GOY is the word which can also be translated "Gentile".
So from this passage we see that there are two logical categories:
Am-Yisrael (the People of Israel) also known as the Assembly of Israel
and the GOYIM (Gentiles).
In Ester 8:17 we learned that many non-Jews in the Persian empire
"became Jews" in the wake of the events of the first Purim. This is
the process of becoming part of the AM of YHWH which are the Assembly
of Elohim. This is the process through which Ruth stopped being a
Moabite and started being part of the People of Israel, as Ruth declared:
For where you go, I will go;
And where you lodge, I will lodge,
your people (AM) will be my people (AM)
and your Elohim my Eohim.
Thus Ruth stopped being a Gentile Moabite and became part of the AM
(people) which are not to be counted amongst the GOYIM (gentiles).
The International Nazarene Beit Din has established a process for
Goyim wishing to become part of Am-Yisrael, wishing to become "Jews".
Persons who complete this conversion process will be halachicly
regarded as Jewish within Nazarene Judaism.
These conversions are NOT accepted for immigration to Israel at this time.
This halacha is for a person to be halachicly regarded as Jewish and
is not a process to make a person "saved."
