Lost in Time

(London)

I believe I am one of the lost tribes that settled in the Southern state of Kerala. We call ourselves Nasaranis followers of Christ. We used to have many of the Jewish customs until the Portugese destroyed our history.


One day we will be discovered, and until then we are waiting to be found. Many of us have discovered that we carry the DNA of Jewish descent. We wait to return back to Israel, but until then we are lost in time.

Our forefathers came to this land with the destruction of the Second Temple. We use to then help the Kings defend their lands. We were classed as warriors in those days, and many of the Rajas wanted our presence at their courts.

That is why we were once from the tribe of Gad. We still dream one day of coming home, as we sit here and remember Zion, for we were carried captives to Assyria. How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?

The Apostle Thomas visited us and converted many of us to Christianity. We now are Messianic Jews who would still like to make Aliyah. I remember my gran, when she was alive, who used to celebrate passover. Those old customs are gradually being lost as our people forget where we have come from as we sing the Lords song.

Now I wait to make my journey back home.

Nazarenes Will Be Back
by: Dahvid

We Nazarenes are the most unassuming people, we love Israel with all our heart, but Israel never sees us. One day, Israel will call us, we are waiting.

I hope they never differentiate us by saying we accepted the Mosiach, we are not going to reject him.

Israel needs friends in this crucial time in modern history. Hope you are found in time in the historical connection. Israel is a great nation.
