“Stand Your Ground” is a phrase that is receiving great attention from media mongers and news consumers across America. But there are countless unreported killers far worse than George Zimmerman on the prowl; loose in Jewish communities all over the world. They are Messianics who would steal and lie to convert to Orthodox Judaism while still believing in Jesus!
It is a mitzvah to expose these liars and to protect the Jewish people by reporting them. All Jews and righteous Gentiles have a duty to “Stand Their Ground” and expose these would-be pretenders before it’s too late. If these people are successful, how will we know who is truly Jewish? How will we ensure that these spiritual terrorists will not kill the souls of our people (chas v’shalom) by poisoning their minds with foreign beliefs? Our security and that of our children’s who will one day marry be’ezras Hashem is at risk because of the three types of people you will read about below–the Messianics, the apostate Jew who helps them, and the unwitting Rabbi who doesn’t know any better.
So what does the Florida law say about self-defense exactly?
Fla. Stat. § 776.012. Use of force in defense of person
A person is justified in using force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against the other’s imminent use of unlawful force. However, a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:
(1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony
I have reason to believe (along with email evidence and witnesses) that the Jewish community in Dallas, Texas is facing harm because of these malicious intruders. What is worse is that there are others Jews helping them.
I will begin with one man–he is in the category of an apostate Jew who is helping Messianics: Rabbi Bejarano Gutierrez, a.k.a. Rabbi Yochanan Bejarano, a.k.a. Juan Marcos Gutierrez of Dallas gets paid thousands of dollars to knowingly enlist Messianics into a conversion program and then assists these false converts with infiltrating communities all over the U.S. and Israel. He has a shul, which he calls ‘traditional” (Chavurah Zohar Yisrael), in South Dallas County.
Here is a clip from an email where he recently was giving blatant instructions to a candidate on how to sneak into an unsuspecting Jewish community:
This “Rabbi” (if he is really such) is a student at Spertus Center for Jewish Learning and Culture. He has published articles in the Journal of Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian Crypto-Jews (JPPICJ). He serves on a board of JPPICJ as treasurer and is actively working in places like Cedar Hill, Duncanville, Desoto, Waxahachie, Red Oak and probably anywhere else he can get an audience. Hopefully this post will be cast far and loud so that those who are in a position to stop this traitor and heretic can help.
Juan Marcos Gutierrez writes a nasty email to one witness who has now backed out of Gutierrez’s fake conversion program and has left Messianic Judaism altogether :
As you can see, he gets quite disgruntled when confronted with his fraud. But he remains defensive and scrambles to hide under a rock so that he can continue his deception for some perverse cause. But read on…he is willing to use his own candidates as witnesses to “out” other Messianics whom he feels are blackmailing him.
The former Messianic couple mentioned in the email below (whose identity is now protected) was apparently close to finishing Gutierrez’s program. However, as a result of this blog post, they have spoken out about their involvement with Gutierrez and provided proof that they are no longer in his “conversion” scam. They are an example of those who belong in the “Messianic” category–a dangerous group of Gentiles who believe they are a part of the Jewish people and have a right to join a community (and even move to Israel) based on their belief that Jesus is the Messiah (nothing could be further from the truth).
An additional fact that is particularly disturbing about this couple’s situation is that another local Orthodox Rabbi, in addition to Juan Marcos Gutierrez, knew about their idolatrous beliefs. The gentleman once said of this Rabbi, “We talked to (name deleted) [about converting] and he said that if we didn’t believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is divine, he would convert us.” In fact, this Rabbi flew up to Hudson, WI to attend the Messaianics’ wedding. He even gave a shiur in one of the homes of a member of the community. In other words, this Orthodox Rabbi would have helped a Messianic couple become “Jews” who retain a belief in Yeshu. From the evidence that I have, he probably fits into the “unwitting Rabbi” category who needs education and oversight to protect himself and others from the Messianics that come to him.
Rabbis need to know that when they show acceptance of Messianics it feeds their initiatives and emboldens them in their efforts to blend in as Jews and ultimately receive conversion while maintaining beliefs that are anathema to Torah and Orthodox Judaism.
With the help of Rabbi Michael Skobac of Jews for Judaism, Akiva Powers of Magen, Yehudah Ilan of Chizzuk Emunah in Israel, and agencies like Jewish Israel and Yad L’Achim, these false conversions can be stopped and those Rabbis who are knowingly or unwittingly supporting Messianics can be educated and held accountable for their affiliations and actions.
If you are a Jew or a righteous Gentile, you have a role too. Silence means acceptance. If you hear of Messianics with plans to infiltrate or if you read blogs/posts that are suspicious or know of Rabbis with lax conversion requirements, report them! Any of the sources I listed above, including myself, can help you.
