ABOUT US 


What makes the Chosen of Israel God's people?  They kept and keep His commandments and His judgments - this is a perpetual requirement as it is a blessing - we find that this it true since Abraham, to the Gospel of the Messiah, and to the Saints in the Kingdom of Heaven confirmed by the Son of God Himself. We find that the Law and Testimony in Isaiah 8:20 identify God's disciples as the Law and Testimony in Revelation 14:12 identifies the Son of God's Saints. Those who practice Lawlessness (Torahlessness) and deny the Christ will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

By the promise of God Elohim - Keep the Law and Testimony and YOU will become a Chosen of Israel to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

"Look down from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel, and the ground which You have given us, a land flowing with milk and honey, as You swore to our fathers.' This day the LORD your God commands you to do these statutes and ordinances. You shall therefore be careful to do them with all your heart and with all your soul. Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandmentsand his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: "The LORD has today declared you to be His people, a treasured possession, as He promised you, and that you should keep all His commandments;"  and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a 
consecrated people to the LORD your God, as He has spoken."  Deuteronomy 26:15-19

"Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen!"  Isaiah 44:1

"O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones."  1 Chronicles 16:13

"Since the day that I brought forth my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel to build a house, that my name might be there; but I chose David to be over my people Israel.  1 Kings 8:16

"But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend."  Isaiah 41:8

"For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast  not known me."  Isaiah 45:4

"For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for His special treasure.  Psalm 135:4



Do you know why Israel is God's Chosen?  This was ELohim's blessing to Abraham - do you know why Abraham was singled out among all men to receive the Most High's blessing?

God's Promise to Isaac
"Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. "I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all  the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws."  Genesis 26:4 


You will note that our church is not named after any egotistic self-centered individual nor is our name non-Biblical as you find with EVERY man-made false doctrine "church".  The fact is our church is in every respect completely Biblical in name and ministry and it keeps the same doctrines since the days of Abraham thru to the Gospel of the Son of God found in the New Testament and Revelation. The Kingdom of God Church provides The Word of God to brethren at no cost for membership nor for its articles, posts, publications, sermons or videos as scripture dictates. In addition, we have no books, CD's or DVD's for sale.

Church Location
God Elohim does not reside in houses made by human hands. As much as one wishes to share the same faith with brethren, do not be dismayed if you do not find a physical Kingdom of God church in your neighborhood. Those who are called to be of the Kingdom of God are a remnant few - you will be hard pressed to find like-minded followers in your city.

Stephen's Address to the Sanhedrin
"However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: 49‘Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. What kind of house will you build for Me, says the Lord, or what will be My place of repose?  Acts 7:48-49

Bear in mind that the Messiah Himself said, "the Kingdom of God resides within you." Once you know the Truth, it is up to you to persevere to keep it:

"When asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God will not come with observable signs. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."  Luke 17:20-21

Take comfort knowing also that where two or more are gathered, so too is ImmanuEL the Son of God - this is true whether you are together in person or in communication over the Internet.

                   "
For where two or three are assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” 
                                                                                                                               Matthew 18:20 



Abraham - the Father of Israel

There is in reality nothing new about us - we've been around since Abraham first followed God Elohim's statutes and commandments (Law - Torah) which makes our following between 3800-4100 years old and going.  The House of Israel kept Elohim's Law ("Law of Mosheh") and in so doing, were actually keeping Testimony of the Messiah thru the 7 Biblical Feasts that marked His appointed times (Moedim) in the future.

Our Rabbi & Teacher Christ 

The Messiah is our ONLY Rabbi, High Priest and Teacher now - Whether you wish to call yourself a Hebrew, Israelite, Nazarene (of the Way), ALL who keep God Elohim's Law (Torah) and Testimony of the Messiah are ALL brethren 
(Matthew 23:8-10).

The Children of Israel, the Prophets, the Apostles, the Nazarenes, and the Saints in Heaven ALL have ONE thing in common: They kept God's Law (Torah) and Testimony of the Messiah - They are ALL set-apart ones of the Church in the Kingdom of God.
 You see, even the Children of Israel were keeping the 7 Biblical Feasts that were a rehearsal of the arrival of the Son of God some 2000 years before - His 1st Coming marked the completion of the first 4 of Elohim's Biblical Feasts. His 2nd Coming during the Tribulation and what follows will fulfill the final 3 of the Fall Feasts. . These are God's Chosen to enter the Kingdom of Heaven - The Revelation of the Messiah ("Apocalypsis" in Latin America) confirms this beyond any doubt whatsoever. The Messiah was sent for one purpose: to preach His Gospel of the Kingdom of God - and instructed His Apostles and disciples to do so.

Background 

During the darkest period of his life in the fall of 2009 Dr. Mata-Torres experienced a Job-like experience that saw him lose everything he had worked years to accumulate and held dear to his heart: His family, home, pets, health, business, savings, furniture, credit and faith in God, Dr. Jorge Mata-Torres felt a need to find out what specifically was required to enter the Kingdom of Heaven - an answer he felt was never made clear to him as 
a Catholic or as an Adventist. Rummaging thru a box of old text books, he found a Bible he had purchased years before and began to look for the answer not by beginning to read the Bible from the beginning, but rather by starting at the end of it.  He found his answer a few pages into the final chapter - it is Revelation 14:12 that is mentioned in the tagline on the Home Page. That discovery was rewarded with a job that was offered days afterwards, and since then changed his life from night to day. 

What began as a quenching of curiousity for his own personal satisfaction has since turned into a quest to share his findings with the rest of the world. Having discovered over a dozen scriptures in Revelation that further confirmed his find, many amazing revelations concerning the Bible and the world around us has produced over a dozen on-line publications and many more dozens of articles over the 7 years since with testimonials from individuals from all 4 corners of the world. He has since been offered to broker the translation of Ron Wyatt's archeological finds to Mandarin for the Asian market, teach Bible studies in Kenya and search for the Ark of the Covenant by the Director of the Wyatt Museum.  

Dr. Jorge Mata-Torres is of Sephardic Hebrew lineage with RH- blood (here) Sephardim have a high percentage of Kohanim (CMH) lineage tracing back to Y-chromosomal Aaron:

Y-chromosomal Aaron

Y-chromosomal Aaron is the name given to the hypothesized most recent common ancestor of many of the patrilineal Jewish priestly caste known as Kohanim (singular "Kohen", "Cohen", or Kohane). In the Torah (known as the Old Testament of the Christian Bible), this ancestor is identified as Aaron, the brother of Moses.


The original scientific research was based on the hypothesis that a majority of present-day Jewish Kohanim share a pattern of values for 6 Y-STR markers, which researchers named the Cohen Modal Haplotype (CMH).[1]


Additional early research using 12 Y-STR markers indicated that about half of contemporary Jewish Kohanim shared Y-chromosomal J1 M267, specifically haplogroup J-P58 (also called J1c3). Other Kohanim groups share a different ancestry, including haplogroup J2a (J-M410).

Molecular phylogenetic research published in 2013 and 2016 for haplogroup J-M267 places the Y-chromosomal Aaron within subhaplogroup Z18271, age estimate 2638-3280 years Before Present (yBP).[2][3]

Genetic studies[edit]

Initial studies

The Cohen hypothesis was first tested through DNA analysis in 1997 by Prof. Karl Skorecki and collaborators from Haifa, Israel. In their study, "Y chromosomes of Jewish priests," published in the journal Nature,[4] they found that the Kohanim appeared to share a different probability distribution compared to the rest of the Jewish population for the two Y-chromosome markers they tested (YAP and DYS19). They also found that the probabilities appeared to be shared by both Sephardic and Ashkenazi Cohens, pointing to a common Cohen population origin before the Jewish diaspora under the Roman empire. However, this study also indicated that only 48% of Ashkenazi Cohanim and 58% of Sephardic Cohanim have the J1 Cohen Modal Haplotype.

In a subsequent study the next year (Thomas MG et al., 1998),[1] the team increased the number of Y-STR markers tested to six, as well as testing more SNP markers. Again, they found that a clear difference was observable between the Kohanim population and the general Jewish population, with many of the Cohen STR results clustered around a single pattern they named the Cohen Modal Haplotype:

 xDE[4]xDE,PR[1]Hg J[5]CMH.1[1]CMH[1]CMH.1/HgJCMH/HgJ
Ashkenazi Cohanim (AC):98.5%96%87%69%45%79%52%
Sephardic Cohanim (SC):100%88%75%61%56%81%75%
Ashkenazi Jews (AI):82%62%37%15%13%40%35%
Sephardic Jews (SI):85%63%37%14%10%38%27%

Genetic history of the Iberian Peninsula

Haplogroup J* (J-M304) is found at levels of over 20% in some regions, while Haplogroup E has a general frequency of about 10% – albeit with peaks surpassing 30% in certain areas. Overall, E-M78  (E1b1b1a1 in 2017) and E-M81 (E1b1b1b1a in 2017) both constitute about 4.0% each, with a further 1.0% from Haplogroup E-M123 (E1b1b1b2a1) and 1.0% from unknown subclades of E-M96.[10] (E-M81 is widely considered to represent relatively recent immigration from North Africa, and is rare in the rest of Europe),

Chosen of Israel Church 

The creation of the Chosen of Israel Church is the culmination of Dr. Jorge Mata-Torres' previous efforts in publishing ebooks and articles with the hope to both "revive" God Elohim's true Church and seek more people worldwide to spread the TRUE Good News Gospel of the Kingdom of God that the Messiah preached during His ministry.
