Avram Yehoshua was born in Brooklyn, New York on 24 May 1951 and circumcised into the Covenant
of Father Abraham eight days later. When Avram was 24 years old (October 1975), he gave his life to
Messiah Yeshua and he was Born Again and his heart was circumcised (John 3:3, 5; Col. 2:11). Eight
years later, after four years of graduate work in the Master of Divinity program at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he established and led The Seed of Abraham, the first Hebraic Perspective congregation in Tulsa, OK (1983 to 1999). In 1985 he completed a year of graduate work in Marriage and Family Therapy at Oklahoma State University in Tulsa and Stillwater, OK.
From 1984 to 2009, Avram evangelized his Jewish people by sending out, through postal mail, the Jewish
Newsletters. They went to all the Jews in the greater Tulsa metropolitan area and a smattering into
40 states and a few countries. The Jewish Newsletters, of which there are 36 on this website (at the top of the HomePage, under JEWISH NEWSL), explain a passage in the Old Testament and how the ancient Israelis would have understood it, and then go on to reveal how Yeshua (Jesus) is seen in the midst of it. Avram also
went out into the Jewish community, knocking on all the Jewish doors, presenting Messiah Yeshua to
his Jewish people. There are many churches in Tulsa, but none evangelized the Jewish people.
Avram has taught more than 500 times, in churches in the USA and Israel, on the holiness of Jesus from
an Old Testament perspective, and on The Hebraic Perspective. From 1991 to 1998 Avram was also a
volunteer chaplain in the Oklahoma prison system. He held worship services at four different facilities
every month (one every week); from the maximum facility at McAlester (Oklahoma State Penitentiary;
i.e. Death Row and its maximum prison), to a minimum facility in Taft, OK (Jess Dunn).
In 1995 the Lord Yeshua led Avram and his wife Ruti to live in Israel for 16 years, where they brought
the Great News about Messiah Yeshua to their Jewish people, on the streets and by-ways of Israel. From
1995-1997 and 1999-2013, Avram and Ruti lived and ministered in Jerusalem, Tiberias (on the Sea of
Galilee), Eilat (the southern-most city in Israel) and Ramat Gan (next to Tel Aviv) and witnessed to thousands
of their Jewish people about Yeshua–the Messiah of Israel. While in Eilat, Avram held worship
services and Bible studies in his apartment, and also pastored a congregation of believers from India, and
helped to pastor a congregation of believers from Nigeria and Ghana.)
In April 2013, Avram and Ruti were arrested in Ramat Gan by the Israeli authorities, imprisoned for ten
days and deported from Israel because of their faith and love for Messiah Yeshua and their Jewish people.
You can read about it in Sam the Rock Thrower.
From April 2013 to September 2014 the Lord led Avram and Ruti to travel around the USA by car,
ministering in churches and home fellowships in about 35 states. In May 2015 the Lord led them to
rent an apartment in San Diego, CA, where they began a Bible study/worship service. In September 2016 the Lord led Avram and Ruti from San Diego to Houston, TX, ministering in the states in-between. Currently, August 2017, they reside in Houston, TX and have begun a Bible study/home fellowship.
If you would like for Avram to bring a message on the holiness of Messiah Yeshua and/or a teaching on
The Hebraic Perspective, and/or a teaching on his time of witnessing in Israel, you can send a message to him at the bottom of the HomePage. Messiah Yeshua has called and trained Avram in two primary areas: teaching His Body about its ancient Hebraic heritage and proclaiming the Great News about Yeshua to Jews and Gentiles. This two-fold ministry is reflected in the articles, books and CDs on this website.
Avram also trains and ordains men to begin branch congregations of The Seed of Abraham in their
communities as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors or teachers. If you feel led to seek ordination
in any of those positions, or just want more information, see The Ordination Process. Currently
one man in Kenya has been ordained and there are 9 men in the ordination process.
Avram also teaches The Hebraic Perspective and shares his many times of witnessing in Houston, to Muslims, Jews, Hindus, atheists and Christians via his New Moon email. If you would like to receive the monthly New Moon email or if you have any biblical questions you would like to discuss regarding the articles on this website or how Mosaic Law applies to New Testament Scriptures and Christians, please feel free to send him a message from the bottom of the HomePage.
Avram has written two books; Sam the Rock Thrower and The Lifting of the Veil—Acts 15:20-21.
In Israel, Avram witnessed to thousands of Israelis in personal evangelism, one of whom was
Sam, who almost killed Avram. Not every time of witnessing was that life threatening, but all of them
were very special. Sam the Rock Thrower is a treasure chest of witnessing and biblical insights
on Scripture. Avram also weaves his testimony throughout his times of witnessing, which makes it especially
rewarding because we see a man who loves Yeshua, on his Journey into the Lord’s Refining Fire (Zech. 13:9; Mal. 3:3).
Sam the Rock Thrower can be read and/or downloaded for free.
The Lifting of the Veil is truly a 'must read' for properly understanding Scripture and why Yeshua
wants every Christian to walk out their faith in Him through all the laws and rules of Moses that apply to them (1st John 2:6). The Church, interpreting the four rules of James (v. 20) as table fellowship, completely misses God’s point because of their anti-Mosaic Law theology. Understood from The Hebraic Perspective the four rules form a divine conceptual unit on sacrificial sexual idolatry–how the ancient pagan world worshiped their gods and goddesses. James, in giving the four rules, knew that and was concerned that 'Jesus' would just be 'added' to a Gentile's pantheon and that the Gentile would continue to believe in, and worship, Diana and Zeus, etc.
The four rules acted as a spiritual filter, revealing whether Gentile faith in Yeshua was genuine or not, because Yeshua, as we know, doesn't countenance competitors. These four rules, then, were the first of many (Mosaic) laws,
and not 'the only rules' that the Gentile was expected to observe 'for table fellowship,' as the Church teaches. They were given because of their primary importance, specifically in relation to Gentile salvation, which is why the Council convened (Acts 15:1f.). This understanding of why the rules were given and what the rules actually are form the New Testament's theological foundation, after the resurrection, that establishes Mosaic Law for every Christian. This is confirmed in the next verse because James goes on to say that the Gentiles were going to the synagogue, on the Sabbath day, to learn the rest of the laws of Moses (i.e. Mosaic Law; v. 21).
The Lifting of the Veil can be read and/or downloaded for free.
Since the year 2000 we have given more than $180,000 to Israelis in need of love, food, clothing and Bibles, etc., both to Jewish believers and yet-to-be Jewish believers.
In July 2012 the Lord led us to begin helping what has now become six Kenyan pastor/caretakers, in six
different villages, who have more than 100 orphans under their care. Since 2012 we have sent them more
than $40,000 for food and clothing and have given each of them either a rain-filtering water tank or have dug a well for them, as well as giving all the children mosquito netting and their own personal Bible. Avram also teaches these pastors The Hebraic Perspective, and they teach it to their own children, their orphans, their congregants and other Kenyans—to the glory of Messiah Yeshua! We are currently praying for funds in order to build shelters/homes for the orphans (as they currently live in the homes of the pastors), and to raise up an Army of Orphans for Messiah Yeshua that will bring Kenya to Him and His Hebraic Perspective.
If you would like to thank Avram for his teachings and/or to help him reach out to Jews and Gentiles with
the Great News of Messiah Yeshua and The Hebraic Perspective, and/or to send funds to needy Israelis
and/or our 100 plus orphans in Kenya, you can send a donation through PayPal or ask Avram for bank wiring information.
