Ya’akov, eved (servant) of Hashem and of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Adoneinu Yeshua; To the Shneym Asar HaShevatim (Twelve Tribes) in the Golus, Shalom!
Netzari Faith came about in 2014 with many Personal failures and heart breaks all in Hashem’s timing to my surprise He did not Baruch HaShem! give up on Me .Well here’s My eduth (testimony) story: like many others who seek after Hashem and Rebbe, Melech Ha’Moshiach Adoneinu Isho’s kingdom and his Righteousness, your walk will perhaps change paths much like my own personal journey to the 1st Century Assembly of Jerusalem.
I ‘am the direct descendant from my mother’s lineage, of the family Campos – Garcia my family roots of Hebraic Catholics (Conversos) of Sephardic Jewish descent of Castilian Spanish from Campo de Criptana, Castille-La Mancha, Spain origin that fled Spain and settled in Aleppo Syria– and around the Turkish border then back to Spain in the Late 1700s, With a relative of my Grandfather –Saavedra from the tribe of Levi, burned at the stake in 1558 for reverting back to Sephardim. All before migrating to New Mexico in the mid to late 1800s. Many of my Family members became Nuns and Priests. All firstborn Sons from then on became Priests via tradition. And as for Me:
I was born the first Son on Parashat Kedoshim ,Yom HaShoah 11th day of the Omer and raised Roman Catholic, First Communion, Alter boy, catechism, confirmation so on and so forth however, I have always had an eastern mindset or way of thinking (ie) genetic memory. Sangre Judia” (“Jewish Blood”) This, of course, left me feeling different and sympathetic toward the Sephardim and Semitic ways Not Roman Catholic.
Recent genetic research has shown that many Latinos of the American Southwest may be descended from Anusim (Sephardic Cohanim who converted to Roman Catholicism). Experts on Jewish genetics have said that fewer than 1% of non-Semites, but more than four times the entire Jewish population of the world, possess the male-specific “Cohanim marker” (Not carried by all Jews, but is prevalent among Jews claiming descent from hereditary priests), and 30 of 78 Latinos tested in New Mexico (38.5%) were found to be carriers.
In May of 1980, I was blessed by Yeshua with a Teshuat Olamim (everlasting salvation). Converted to Baptist Two Years Later I was Mikvah Ha Ruach Ha Kodesh , then In mid-1996 I was ordained into the Agape Movement. As Pastor of the Lighthouse in Yucaipa Ca. and went on to founding Yeshua Beth Or and Netzari Faith Movement.
While all along on the path halakha (Hebrew: הֲלָכָה) (Sephardic:) “the path” or “the way of walking” to where I moved into the Netzarim Faith then into the (Lapid Judaism Movement). The same faith (Emuna) of the original followers of Yeshua & his 12 Talmidim of the Jerusalem Synagogue.
Update in 2014-2020 without realizing Netzari Faith was transitioning to where Now, Netzari Emunah has fully embraced Lapid Orthodox Judaism. The torch (lapid). Isaiah 62:1 Spark On
