Just before his departure from the Mount of Olives and his ascension to the Heavens, Messiah left us theses awesome last instructions:

All authority is given me in heaven and earth.
Go you therefore, and teach all the Goyim,
and immerse them in the name of the Father,
and the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh,
and teach them to observe all that I have commanded you,
and here I am with you all the days, to the end of the world.
(Mt. 28:18-20)

This was NOT a commission for Christians to go take a Torah-less version of “Jesus” to the world. I was a commission for Nazarenes to take the Message of Torah and Messiah to the world. Paul fulfilled this commission by teaching the message “publicly and from house to house” (Acts 20:20) or as the Aramaic has it “in the streets and in houses”.

As Nazarenes we should be taking the message of Torah and Messiah to all the Goyim, teaching them in the streets and from house to house. Many Christian groups have discarded house to house outreach as “ineffective”, yet the Mormons and the Jehovah’s Witnesses seem to know better. Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses are amazingly successful at winning converts through house to house outreach. If they can accomplish that much with error, imagine what we can do going house to house with the TRUTH.

Operation Wake Up Call is a wake up call for the world! The world is in a deep sleep of apostasy (Is. 29:10; Rom. 11:8) and needs a wake up call. There is nothing like the amazing power of good old fashioned "house to house" witnessing for Torah and Messiah, just as our Nazarene forefathers did (Acts 20:20). Operation wake up call is a complete support system for full scale door to door outreach.

As Messiah’s Talmidim we need to be fisher’s of men (Mt. 4:19). For some, house to house outreach is like a dog chasing a car, they would not know what to do if they actually caught one.

The Operation Wake Up Call system consists of six simple lessons intended to be given over six visits of less than an hour each. The first lesson is titled “What is Truth?” by the sixth visit “You’re a Nazarene Now” the prospect has become a Nazarene.

Join Operation Wake Up Call now, we provide you with a complete support system.

Reflect on this, even daily, in preparation for Door to Door. I have gone door-to-door coast-to-coast many years, even years at a time.

If you read on Romans 11 we are told that there is a "stoniness" and blindness out there that is to be in place until the "...Gentile world enters in its fullness; (CJB v 25)" which reflects 2 The 2:11 "God will send upon them a strong delusion, that they will believe the lies." This is very important, in each case our Emissary, for Jewish Yeshua the Torah observant Jewish Meshiakh, Sha'ul, is refering to the Jew being in this condition, cut off temporarily.

I have witnessed the same condition for those among the Christian and "Messianic Jewish" adherents - these are huge groups of people cut off from the truth by the lies that they have been deluded to adhere to! This prophetic "law" of insanity on wrongly religious peoples is effective against any following ways fabricated by mankind in rebellion of Torah and Yeshua's effective Jewish identity!

All of these, who suppose to be his, are not his by HIS word, Yeshua: "And anyone who does not take up his execution-stake and follow me is not worthy of me. (Mt 10:38)" So, this is the state of the spiritual depravity that we meet when we go door to door. It should not surprise us when we are rejected. Yeshua says, "How blessed you are when people insult you and persecute you and tell all kinds of vicious lies about you because you follow me! (CJB Mt 5:11)"

REJOICE! And do not quit; remember what Yeshua says in John 10:27, "My sheep listen to my voice, I recognize them, they follow me (CJB)." He also warns us to protect our own salvation, and let go of our ties to those who refuse to follow, refering to the one who betrays him, speaking to Peter, Yeshua says, ""If I want him to stay (alive) until I come, what is it to you? You, follow me!" (CJB Jn 20:22)"

No matter the cost, we must continue. You may see all kinds of disappointment, jesting, even violence on the road, even at the door; that is simple evidence of the truth of our trust. We must continue and not shrink back. I have gone to campuses on Friday evenings to witness to people about Yeshua. I have even discovered that the wicked are so arrogant and energetic about their wickedness that some snuck around ahead of me warning people to stay clear of me even if what I say is TRUE!

It actually took me many years to figure this out. I have even seen this on the Internet - or evidence of it. I even see names and pictures of some who treated me with hatred on this Nazarene site! And, without honest reason except what they have hidden! There is no place for that – particularly by women! These have failed the tests put to them!

Remember, there is no sin that can’t be forgive and we be raised to serve him, except that which is the hidden offense. We can’t help those who hide being offended heal of their sin!

There are other things, much worse, that some have done to intimidate us and humiliate us. We/I were/was not intimidated or humiliated; I believe the ones who attacked me/us were, and I was disgusted, and even more wanting holiness and right family.

DO NOT be afraid! Some who say they believe don't have such experience because their outreach is limited or non-existent! Truly, non-existent, my experience this way began with the first time I did this. When we were taught to go door to door in Bible College we got a list of people from the church that filled out a form, a list of those who wanted contact! That is the easiest start, but we must go the whole world publicly door to door with the truth! Searching for those whom are “called by His name!” Even still, we met desperate parents with suicidal children, drug addicted girls selling themselves for the next fix in wealthy families and poor, those who push such violence on our children and our families are not intimidated by anything. They are socio-paths and out of control with no fear of being caught, because the average person doesn't want to accept the possibility of that in their existence, nor do they want to be involved or report the suspicious activity they witness. WE MUST BE ALL THE MORE FEARLESS!

AND, we must also be CONVINCED that the WAY is the factual truth and not some half baked stone painted the same color or we will quit! I have quit many many times, to be picked up again by Yeshua - HE is faithful and true!

Here is a choice prayer by Yeshua who prays in John 17 to His Father, "2 just as you gave (your son) authority over all mankind, so that he might give eternal life to all those whom you have given him."

We are looking for those that our Father will give to us!

He continues, "3 And eternal life is this: to know you, the one true God, and him whom you sent, Yeshua the Messiah."

And, not Torah-less imposters... see Acts 15:19-21, Torah has always been and always will be the way.

"6 "I made your name known to the people you gave me out of the world. They were yours, you gave them to me, and they have kept your word."

They kept what? HIS WORD? Oh, that is Torah, right? LOL YES!

There was nothing else to keep at the time people!

"8 because the words you gave me I have given to them, and they have received them. They have really come to know that I came from you, and they have come to trust that you sent me."

Is it HIS word that we carry? Let's make sure!

"9 "I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given to me, because they are yours. 10 Indeed, all I have is yours, and all you have is mine, and in them I have been glorified. 11 Now I am no longer in the world. They are in the world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, guard them by the power of your name, which you have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we are."

PEOPLE, he made known what name and GUARDS us with what NAME? Is that the same name he was murdered for "blaspheming"? YES! No one used that name but the Cohen HaGadol at the right time and place.

AND, please don’t let anyone tell you that they named their son Yahweh – see below. It’s out there that the Messiahs name must be Yahweh! Don’t accept it!

"12 When I was with them, I guarded them by the power of your name, which you have given to me; yes, I kept watch over them; and not one of them was destroyed (except the one meant for destruction, so that the Tanakh might be fulfilled)."

LOL joy! What might be fulfilled? The Tanakh! We must tell them what the true word is!

"13 But now, I am coming to you; and I say these things while I am still in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves. 14 "I have given them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world -- just as I myself do not belong to the world. 15 I don't ask you to take them out of the world, but to protect them from the Evil One."

If he takes us out of the world there will be no voice. Though we are here yet, if the Evil One takes our exercise away, there is no voice! We must go!

"16 They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 17 Set them apart for holiness by means of the truth -- your word is truth."

We don't belong to the world so we don't need to be tempted by what they allow themselves to do against one another and against god. We should prepare by developing a vision of the life we desire in HIM, and think on that rather than get jealous when disappointed. Be prepared people!

"18 Just as you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world."

HE is sending us! This door to door thing is FOR HIM! WE LOVE HIM, right?

"19 On their behalf I am setting myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of the truth. 20 “I pray not only for these, but also for those who will trust in me because of their word, 21 that they may all be one. Just as you, Father, are united with me and I with you, I pray that they may be united with us, so that the world may believe that you sent me. 22 The glory which you have given to me, I have given to them; so that they may be one, just as we are one -- 23 I united with them and you with me, so that they may be completely one, and the world thus realize that you sent me, and that you have loved them just as you have loved me 24 "Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am; so that they may see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. 25 Righteous Father, the world has not known you, but I have known you, and these people have known that you sent me. 26 I made your name known to them, and I will continue to make it known; so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I myself may be united with them. (CJB, crosswalk.com)"

If you are not confident in this before you go door to door, becoming confident in this is what your goal is; and you'd best be with people who are truly convinced until you are.

I would read this prayer, which is the entire chapter of John 17, before all door to door time you do. And, remember whom we serve!

What are their names?

"There is but one name by which men may be saved. (CJB)"

"On the eighth day, when it was time for his b'rit-milah, he was given the name Yeshua, which is what the angel had called him before his conception (Lk 2:21)."

And, Acts 2:21, "Ac 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved (AV, On-line Bible: free download)."

What name?

Acts 4:12, "Ac 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (AV, On-Line Bible)".

WHAT? There is no other name by which we MUST be saved? YES!

YESHUA is the name and our Father YHVH or YahVeHey is HE!

Baruch HaShem, B'Shem Yeshua HaMeshiakh!

I'm mostly in favor of what you're trying to do with this operation wake up call. I like the door to door, although it would be a stretch for me, to be sure. I like that you're preaching the Messiah. It's good to get people engaged in these kinds of discussions.

I do have a problem with a few things, however.

1. Study guides 4, 5, & 6 are 0k when I download them. It might be my side, but I did try several times.

2. I don't think that the great apostasy can possibly refer to most Christian denominations. For one, the Gentiles have been doing this thing just about the same way since the beginning of Christianity. It's not an end times thing, as far as I can tell.

2b. Torah-less: Most Christians do not reject the Torah in full. They reject categories, such as food laws. A common rule is that if it's not reiterated in the NT books, they were for the actual sons of Abraham, not those grafted in. If that qualifies as without Torah, I will be surprised. They keep the law of love, both toward God and each other. If I'm not much mistaken, unless we're perfect, keeping that is the summation of the Laws and Prophets.

2c. I think the great apostasy will amount to something a lot closer to the theory of Evolutionism or things that might stem from that. It's a lot more modern, and it is something that has Christian churches falling away. It's certainly something that we have to overcome in order to come to grips with the Torah, especially Genesis.

3. It seems like these pamphlets are targeting those who already have a commitment to Christ, albeit a tainted Christ. I'm not completely opposed to having people learning Torah and keeping it, or even leaving their fellowship to join yours, but it seems like these discussions wouldn't go as far with a Hindu or an Agnostic professor. I think they're more in need of this stuff than those who keep all but the Sabbath and food laws.

I don't mean to stir up trouble, but I know that the people who read these things are more than capable of answering my concerns. I look forward to hearing good answers to hard questions.
