While we have your attention we would like to briefly explain a little bit of our history and purpose. The twelve sons of Jacob became tribes, then a nation during slavery in Egypt. Exodus 1:13 "And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:" Verse 14: "And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour." From the hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt, we could see a true representation below of the ancient Hebrew Israelites (Jews) laboring in hard bondage (slavery). That nation became the chosen people to whom God promised the Kingdom of Heaven. Fast forward to today, their children are ignorant of their past and inheritance. Our purpose is to reveal the hidden identity and gospel (good news) to our people. Colossian 1:26 "Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:"
At that time our lives were in disarray, we lost many families and friends to heresy. All the work we put in previously was lost (websites, location, etc..). The congregation had to begin from scratch; especially addressing the heresies online.
Our intentions was to have an internet presence; for those that were looking for the 12 Tribes of Israel that existed in Harlem. Also to warn and explain the scriptures to those that would come in contact with the heresy. What transpired was more than what we expected. A network of people, tools, or online resources that taught many. Such as the Apocrypha download, newsletters, audio lessons (podcast), hundreds of reports, and etc..
We were not web developers initially. It was out of necessity that we began to do it. At that time Flash was the popular technology for websites. Rapidly that changed, as mobile devices began to have access to the internet. Our massive site became outdated and we realized the security implications of using flash.
Besides the outdated technology, we were paying the price literally for using outside providers. We were hacked a few times (no personal info was compromised) however it caused many outages. Our providers did nothing to correct this and they did not help to restore important parts of our site. Therefore we decided to take on a huge project of building an infrastructure and updating the site by getting rid of all the flash pages. Now we are our own content provider, modernizing all previous reports, and using mobile friendly technology. We ask that you be patient with us not only because we are restoring pages daily, but we also expanded to other websites.
Why three websites? Our efforts and desire is indicated in the web addresses. RiseIsrael.com was created as an house of learning, with easy to understand reports especially for those that are new. However the hundreds of reports were not enough, many brothers and sisters wanted more than just reports. Rightfully so! An offline and online 12 Tribes Network is needed. We must fellowship, faith comes by hearing, we want to see, and to be kept informed. Yet in our travels we encountered a few hurdles, those RiseIsrael.com reports need to be in other languages and they must be also expounded to give a more advance level of understanding. We need a universal website, hence 12T.CO, a new short easy to remember web address that represents the name of the congregation. See, Genesis 49:28, Matthew 19:28, and Revelations 21:10-12. Helping us to remove the barriers of language, religions, and false nationalities as we teach our history and prophecies of the Holy Scriptures. This way we could reach a lot more people and possibly help future generations. Jeremiah 30:20 "Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them." In short, by separating the websites we could keep a certain quality, expectation, and purpose for each one.
If you are sincere reach out and see the beauty of fellowship, brotherhood, and the fulfillment of prophecy.
