The Father "draws" people to come to His Son so they can understand Him and His ways. The Father has His teachers to instruct those He "draws" to His Son. The Merciful Servants of God ministry is one of His teachers.
"No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.
"It is written in the prophets, 'AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me. "Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father." (John 6:44-46 NASB)
"Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go up and join this chariot."Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this: "HE WAS LED AS A SHEEP TO SLAUGHTER; AND AS A LAMB BEFORE ITS SHEARER IS SILENT, SO HE DOES NOT OPEN HIS MOUTH. "IN HUMILIATION HIS JUDGMENT WAS TAKEN AWAY; WHO WILL RELATE HIS GENERATION? FOR HIS LIFE IS REMOVED FROM THE EARTH." The eunuch answered Philip and said, "Please tell me, of whom does the prophet say this? Of himself or of someone else?" Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him." (Acts 8:29-35 NASB)
"How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!" (Romans 10:14-15 NASB)
"Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, so that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar." (Matthew 23:34-35 NASB)
Remember, you can study the Bible for hours and years and never come to the knowledge of the TRUTH.
"Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." (2 Timothy 3:7 NASB)
Notice what David Stern, a Jew, stated about the Bible in his Jewish New Testament commentary:
"Do you understand what you're reading? It is amazing how one can read and reread the Bible without seeing in it the reality of God and his son Yeshua; that was my own experience until age 37. It is my hope that the Jewish New Testament and this commentary will aid Jews and Gentiles everywhere to understand better what they are reading. My special concern is for sincere seekers whose response to the question, like that of the Ethiopian eunuch, is: How can I unless someone explains it to me?"
We will never have a complete understanding of the Bible unless we all humble ourselves like a little child and be willing to unlearn error we have learned over the years about life and the Bible:
". . .Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3-4 NASB)
"Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all." (Mark 10:15 NASB)
"Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know." (1 Corinthians 8:1-2 NASB)
"But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions." (1 Timothy 1:5-7 NASB)

We are looking for people who tremble before God's word. We are looking for people who desire to know why they were born, and the purpose for mankind.
When you come to our meetings (locally or virtually), please bring your Bible and a notepad to take notes. We believe in fellowshipping AND learning from the Bible.
Biblically, what is fellowshipping? Is it just talking to each other or is it much more than that?
"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
The Greek word for fellowship in this verse is koinōnía (koy no ne a).
"κοινωνία (koinōnia). n. fem. fellowship, communion, sharing, participation. A term that conveys a sense of commonality, solidarity, and shared responsibility among households or individuals.
"The most general sense of this term refers to a shared conviction that manifests itself as mutual responsibility and status. Most often, koinōnia refers to the sharing of resources, monetary or otherwise (e.g., Acts 2:42; Rom 15:26; 2 Cor 8:4; 9:13; Phlm 1:6; Heb 13:16). For example, in Rom 15:26 Christian assemblies in Macedonia and Achaia make a “donation” (koinōnia) for the poor in Jerusalem. In this text, the term koinōnia reflects the willingness of the assemblies to share their resources as a way of expressing solidarity with and responsibility for the saints in Jerusalem. Those who choose to willing engage in mutual responsibility are described as having “partnership” (koinōnia) with the body of Christ (1 Cor 10:16), the gospel (Phil 1:5), the Spirit (Phil 2:1), the sufferings of the Messiah (Phil 3:10), or, negatively, unbelievers (2 Cor 6:14). The NT also teaches that believers enjoy “fellowship” (koinōnia) with Jesus (e.g., 1 Cor 1:9; 1 John 1:3, 6). (Davis, D. L. 2014. Assembly, Religious. D. Mangum, D. R. Brown, R. Klippenstein, & R. Hurst (Eds.), Lexham Theological Wordbook. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.)"
"And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Yeshua (Jesus) and Paul taught on the Sabbath and so does the Merciful Servants of God ministry.
"And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days." (Luke 4:31)
"And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures." (Acts 17:2)
"And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3-4)
"For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word." (Isaiah 66:2)
ALL of our teachings are FREE. We do not believe in selling God's doctrines for a price.
God reveals in His word that He has trained teachers to teach His TRUTH to those who desire to know the TRUTH.
"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ." (Ephesians 4:11-13)
God commands His teachers to do the following:
"I CHARGE [you] in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom: Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.
"For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions. As for you, be calm and cool and steady, accept and suffer unflinchingly every hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fully perform all the duties of your ministry." (2 Timothy 4:1-5 AMP)
That time has come. In the 21st century, many people do not desire sound and wholesome Bible instruction and they listen to one teacher after another to satisfy their misunderstandings about the Bible.
God tells us to TEST the spirits because there are MANY false teachers in the world.
"BELOVED, DO not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world." (1 John 4:1 AMP)
The Merciful Servants of God is one of the ministries that is teaching the TRUTH about the Bible. If you desire to be taught the TRUE doctrines of the Bible, then we encourage you to join our group and attend our meetings.
According to Time magazine, there is a movement in Christianity to "Re-Judaize" Jesus. The Merciful Servants of God ministry is a part of this movement. Click "Re-Judaize" Jesus to find out more about this movement.
We Practice PURE Worship
"Pure religion (Greek meaning is "worshipping" - emphasis mine) and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27)
"The [consistently] righteous man knows and cares for the rights of the poor, but the wicked man has no interest in such knowledge. [Job 29:16; 31:13; Ps. 41:1.]" (Proverbs 29:7 AMP)
"They only [made one stipulation], that we were to remember the poor, which very thing I was also eager to do." (Galatians 2:10 AMP)
"In everything I have pointed out to you [by example] that, by working diligently in this manner, we ought to assist the weak, being mindful of the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said, It is more blessed (makes one happier and more to be envied) to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35)
"Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow." (Isaiah 1:17)
"Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, And laid them at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need." (Acts 4:34-35)
If anyone has physical needs, we do the best we can to fulfill them. If we do not have the resources, then we do the best we can to refer you to the proper government agency that can help you with your physical and financial needs.
Is it important to study and read the Bible in the 21st century?
On September 29, 1789, Fisher Ames, who suggested the wording for the First Amendment, stated:
"We have a dangerous trend beginning to take place in our education. We're starting to put more and more textbooks into our schools . . . We've become accustomed of late of putting little books into the hands of children containing fables and moral lessons . . . We are spending less time in the classroom on the Bible, which should be the principal text in our schools . . . The Bible states these great moral lessons better than any other man-made book." (America's God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, pg. 26 by William J. Federer)
President Herbert Hoover stated:
"The whole inspiration of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of American life." (America's God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, pg. 297 by William J. Federer)
The purpose of this church Meetup group, for those who are interested, is to teach the Bible's life changing message and God's wonderful & spectacular plan for Mankind. We are an assembly (church) group. The name of the assembly (church) is the Merciful Servants of God.
We are seekers of the truth which is defined in the Bible as ALL the commandments, instructions & doctrines of God in the Old & New Testaments (Psalm 119:142, 151; John 14:6; 17:17; Matthew 4:4).
Additionally, we study the Jewish background of the Bible because the Bible was written mostly by Jews, and to fully understand the Bible, it is necessary to study Jewish culture during Biblical times. We also do the best we can to practice pure religion or worship (James 1:27).
If you are interested in fellowshipping with people who believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah (Christ) for all of mankind, who keep the Shabbat (Sabbath) on Saturday and Moedim (Holy Days) listed in Leviticus 23 and you understand the importance of consistent fellowship (Hebrews 10:25), then we encourage you to join our Meetup Group so you can receive notifications of meetings in the Columbus, OH area.
The Gospel message is about the following:
(2) Socioeconomics (making a living/surviving-this involves taking care of your financial needs and your body)
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (Yeshua/Jesus-emphasis mine), Because He has annointed Me to preach the gospel to the POOR; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord." (Luke 4:18-19)
We desire to help you spiritually and physically.
Please scroll down to discover who the 12 tribes of Israel are today and to find out more about the Merciful Servants of God and why you should join our group.
Who are the 12 Tribes of Israel?
In these end times/last days, it is very important to understand who the 12 Tribes of Israel are in Genesis 49 and Deuteronomy 33. God revealed information in His Word about each tribe to help us identify them in the 21st century. The ability to clearly understand Bible prophecy requires a complete & accurate understanding of the identity of the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Did you know the throne of David exists in Britain today? The throne of David must exist today because God promised it would (Jeremiah 33:17-22).
Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) will sit on the throne of David when He comes back to take rulership of the world (Luke 1:32). Please look at the video of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth and notice the people shout, "God save the Queen." When there was a British king coronated the people shouted, "God save the King." And, amazingly, in Biblical times when a King of Israel was cornoated the people shouted, "God save the King."
"And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon. Then ye shall come up after him, that he may come and sit upon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah." (1 Kings 1:34-35)
"And Samuel said to all the people, See ye him whom the LORD hath chosen, that there is none like him among all the people? And all the people shouted, and said, God save the king." (1 Samuel 10:24)
This is a fantastic book you can get at the library or read online that goes into further detail about how Britain is linked with the 12 Tribes of Israel.
Fellowshipping with the Merciful Servants of God
When you fellowship with us (locally or virtually), please bring your Bible so you can follow along with us. We use the King James Version as our main Biblical text. However, we use other versions when necessary.
During services, we pray and ask God to heal those who need healing, we ask God to help those going through difficulties and we listen to Messianic music. We have a group Bible study based on the traditional Torah readings. We go by a reading plan that covers the entire Bible in one year. The Bible study usually lasts for 1 hour.
We are searching for people to fellowship with who believe the written word of God consists of the Old Testament (Tanakh) AND New Testament (Renewed Covenant/Agreement).
We desire to keep all of the commandments of Yah (God) (including the Sabbath on Saturday) and the holy days (Leviticus 23) as Yeshua did in the 1st century because He commanded His followers follow His example (Matthew 5:17-19; John 15:10; 1 John 2:3-6; Ephesians 5:1; Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 2:16; Galatians 2:20).
All human beings have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We are not perfect. However, we should strive to do the best we can to obey God's commandments.
The GOOD NEWS is He gives us the power to keep His commandments by the Holy Spirit (Ezekiel 36:27). He gives the Holy Spirit to those who desire to obey Him (Acts 5:32). We can do all things through Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) (Philippians 4:13).
If you desire to understand and believe the entire written words of God and to obey the instructions of God (the Torah-the TRUTH of God - Psalm 119:142, 151, 172; John 17:17; Matthew 4:4) through the power of the Holy Spirit, then you are welcome to learn and study with us.
God states the following:
"Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you." (Proverbs 1:23)
"Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently." (1 Peter 1:22)
Welcome to the Merciful Servants of God. Our assembly's mission is to connect by using Internet technology and other media locally, nationally and globally with those who Yah is calling to be King & Priests (John 6:44-45; Acts 2:38-40; 1 Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6; 5:10; Revelation 20:4-6) and to teach them the TRUTH. Additionally, one of the major goals of the ministry is to help unify the assemblies of Yah (1 Corinthians 1:10; Revelation 19:7). We preach the Jewish Gospel of the Kingdom of Yah-that Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ), who is a Jew (Genesis 49:10; Hebrews 13:8), will come and establish His eternal kingdom on the earth with the saints and all the holy angels on the earth. Peace, for the world and the Universe, will last forever and forever (Mark 1:14-15; Daniel 7; Isaiah 9:6-7).
ALL of Mankind will be given a fair chance to enter the Kingdom of Yah (1 Timothy 2:4; Romans 11:31-32; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Corinthians 15:22-23; Ezekiel 37:1-14). Death, pain, sicknesses and suffering will be eliminated (Isaiah 2:1-4; Isaiah 11; Psalm 72; Revelation 19, 20, 21 & 22).
Merciful Servants of God provides the following services:
(1) Biblical & Spiritual Instruction
(2) Bible Prophecy Instruction
(3) Knowledge about Organic Food and Herbs that strengthen the body
(4) Job Search Assistance
(5) Prayers & Anointing for Healing
(6) Career & Financial Counseling
(7) Marriage Counseling
Merciful Servants of God also helps teenagers develop a better relationship with Yah by participating in a youth camp called Camp Mashiach (Messiah).
The driving force behind our mission is our burning desire to (1) help all the assemblies of Yah believe and speak the same thing, (2) to help restore the true foundational doctrines of Yah in these end times, (3) to warn the nations of the world about the coming great tribulation and (4) to teach about the peaceful world to come (Isaiah 2:2-4 KJV).
“Nevertheless, brothers, I call on you in the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah to agree, all of you, in what you say, and not to let yourselves remain split into factions but be restored to having a common mind and a common purpose.” (1 Corinthians 1:10 CJB)
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV)
