Christian House of Yahweh• by Mike Oppenheimer

This Church is not a Christian Church but a mixture of Old Testament law and Some New Testament prophecy teaching. Its focus is on the end and not Christ. They do not teach on walking with the savior but concentrate on the other Church’s as completely wrong and they alone have the true message. Almost all the points of warning about cults are found in this Assembly. They may mean well but good intentions can be just as dangerous, especially for admitted doomsday groups like this one.

  1. I was a member in the House of Yahweh. The women and children there suffer terribly. My sons suffered abuse that has done permanent damage. Females are property bought and sold for maid-servants, slaves, wives, and concubines. Females are severely oppressed. The males can buy as many as they want and do whatever they want to them. The pastor there is like a tick. He sucks the "blood" (the life) out of every member,as every penny must go to the HOY.Brain washing in the HOY is severe, detailed, expert. If governments ran countries like pastor Yisrayl Hawkins runs the HOY, those governments would not have any unpatriotic citizens. HOY members will not leave because they are afraid of the eternal death that the HOY constantly threatens them with.

    More poeple need to come forward, I am desperately trying to keep my .family member from going to the House of Yahwey. She believes that she should follow Yisreal Hawkins, and that these trailors are some kind of religious community. PLEASE give me anything that I can prove to her, there are children involved. Everytime i find a website the page comes up as an error.

  3. Maria Moultrie says:

    I too was member of the House of Yahweh. However, I left after an "elder" told me that he dreamt about me being his wife. I was 17 years-old and a senior in high school. He was a 50+ disabled veteran, married with two teenage children. My own mother was willing to sell me to him so that she was assured a "high place" in the "kingdom." My parents have now sold their home and are moving to Texas to live that life. Don't be fooled by what you have heard. These people are preying on the weak and "strong." My parents are very intelligent college educated people who had very good paying professional jobs. These so called leaders prey on young girls, they are just a bunch of child molesters and bigots. I am glad that I got out when I did. I just feel sorry for those left behind that really beleive that Yisrayl will lead them to the "promised land." He is a parasite feeding on the people that are truly searching for something more than organized religion can offer them. He makes people believe that their own families are evil and as a result, you lose your family members to his doctrine. I have come to realize that my parents are lost and this is their choice. I am just bracing myself for the day I see them on the news DEAD. It is inevitable as we have seen so many cults end in the past. May God have mercy on all their souls.

  4. Former Member says:

    I am also a former member. I also witness many girls as young as 12 years old be married off to grown men where they live a live of slavery. They don't go to school and start having children immediately. They are so closely watched they do not know of another life. Women from other countries are especially vunerable. They stay in the US illegally as wives or sisters and are afraid to leave or unable to get back to their country of origin. The men are encouraged to have multiple wives and women suffer greatly because of it. To object or disobey your "Head" is the same as disobeying the Creator of this world. People live poorly in trailers while the pastor Yisrayl Hawkins lives in luxury. He has a couple of girls he also married when they were about 12 years old and has children with them as well.

  5. Gina says:

    I have two uncles that I have never met because they are in the house of Yahweh. I know they have had childen (my cousins) which to this day I have never met. It upsets me to think that I may never get to know them, or how many there are or if they are still alive. I just wish there was something or some way to find out more about the people in it and if they are okay or not.

  6. Christina says:

    My Sister joined HoY about 9 years ago. She was living in Ca and after going to what they call "feasts" she was told that they had found someone for her to marry. My Mom met him when he came to get her but I didn't. I asked too many questions and after a while we lost contact. She now has 3 sons. The oldest is 7 and the youngest hasn't turned one yet. If anyone has gotten out how or what made you stop believing? Is there any advice anyone has to get her to see what is really going on around her? I would greatly appreciate any advice.
