On October 4, 1996, I went to Louden, Tennessee, to the Piney Ruritain Community Center for the Feast Of Tabernacles. There was a speaker there by the name of Scott Vaught who was teaching that Yahshua-Christ was of the Tribe of Ephraim rather than the Tribe of Judah. Ever since that time, I have been trying to find the origin of that theory. I have recently discovered from where it emerged. Little did I imagine that its origin is to be found in the “Jewish” Talmud, and that the more famous “Jewish” Cabbalists throughout history have been, and are still, its greatest adherents.
As many of you already know, I have gone to great lengths to steer people away from Eugene (Buddy) Johnson’s venom along this line, for Buddy picked up the ball from Scott Vaught and started running with it and is disseminating it all over the country. I’m not going to waste a lot of time, but give you the documentation I have on this ignominious, heretical prevarication which has its origin from of the very pits of hell!
A friend of mine sent me a small 4"x6", 32 page booklet entitled The Jewish Tradition Of Two Messiahs written by staff writer Kevin Williams of the “RBC Ministries.” While the author uses the usual nominal churchianity rhetoric like “Jew” and “Gentile”, nevertheless, his is a scholarly treatise with documentation to back up his subject. He demonstrates on page 16 how some Jews differentiate between a “suffering” Messiah and a “conquering” Messiah, which is typically a “Jewish” line-of-thought. Unable to reconcile both a “suffering” and a “conquering” Messiah in one being, some of them decided that there must be two.
