Today’s story is the first in a series resulting from a recent interview in Nashville. It will continue next week and delve into her work with education in public schools as well as misconceptions known as replacement theology, or anti-Semitism in American churches.
“Moses: ‘Listen, Israel!
The Eternal is our True God — He alone.’ ”
Deuteronomy 6:4 • The Voice Bible
The initials behind Laurie Cardoza Moore’s name may not be seen often. As a Doctor of Theology, a terminal degree in the academic discipline of theology, the Th.D. is an advanced research degree equivalent to the Doctor of Philosophy— which explains the reason she can dissect a global issue with eternal consequences and tell through mass communications, a message most mainstream media outlets are missing or ignoring. She does it on many platforms.
Moore also is a Special Envoy to the United Nations Economic and Social Council on behalf of the World Council of Independent Christian Churches, a non-governmental organization. ECOSOC is one of six principal organs of the United Nations responsible for coordinating the economic, social and related work of 15 UN specialized agencies. The ECOSOC has 54 members. When she talks, people listen. She walks in these circles because first — she listened to God.
Her research, along with her husband’s award-winning documentaries, include American and Israeli dignitary interviews. Her views are currently being broadcast on Daystar Television. “Focus On Israel,” a 30-minute 12-part series explains the history and current affairs as they pertain to the land and people of Israel and their effect on the rest of the world as the children of God — a people under attack with false or no information being disseminated in American churches. Digging deep into the cultural, social and governmental motives behind sensational headlines, Moore is a voice crying in the wilderness making her way into mainstream media.
“I started out thinking I was going to be a television commercial actress, but God — after my first trip to Israel, that’s what changed it. I said, wait a minute this story is not being communicated to the church and most Americans don’t know what’s going on over here. That’s when I came back from Israel in 2003, a gift as a guest of the Jewish Federation, I started doing something,” Moore said during a recent interview.
When the Lord got hold of Moore, she was attending Nashville’s Belmont Church. Rev. Don Finto was the pastor and had experienced his own spiritual awakening sharing with the church about Israel in the early 1990s.
“It’s a Jewish awakening, but more than that, an Israel awakening,” Moore said. “The nation of Israel, the 12 tribes of Jacob, has not been restored since the time of Rehoboam, Solomon’s son. The nation was united under Kings Saul, David and Solomon, then Rehoboam was the last. There was a shift in the country. They were coming out of a time of war. The treasury was depleted, and Rehoboam asked his father’s advisors if he should raise the taxes on the 10 northern tribes.
“Judah and Benjamin (two southern tribes) served Yahweh in the Temple. The 10 tribes did the labor, the heavy lifting. So Rehoboam was going to increase the taxes. His father’s advisors said ‘no.’ Then he went to his friends who said, ‘yes.’ That’s when the split happened. Jeroboam, who was ruling over the 10 tribes, told Rehoboam, ‘no way.’ Jeroboam set up two gold idols for worship proclaiming they had delivered them (the Hebrews) from the land of Egypt. Rehoboam would have nothing to do with the idol worship,” Moore said.
“Hosea, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah all prophesied, ‘Yes to the Jews,’ but warned them, if you do not repent and move away from your idolatry, God is going to give you a writ of divorce, separate you and cast you out. He will be done with you,” Moore said. “But then God promised through Isaiah who foretold that one day, ‘Even though I cast you out, wouldn’t have mercy on you, made you forget your identity and you forgot your name — one day I will have mercy on you and regather you from the four corners of the earth. I will bring you back into your land.”
Israel was established as a sovereign nation 70 years ago this year.
“That is the time we are living in, where all 12 tribes are coming home. The Jews, Judah is there. It is like the prodigal son story. There were two sons, two separate kingdoms. Judah, the Jews, was the son who never left the father, the 10 northern tribes were the ones who went off and prostituted their father’s wealth until they woke up and realized, we had it better in our father’s house. They came back. That is the regathering of the exiles of Israel. Most of the church has been blinded to it, but He’s revealing this now — to our generation,” Moore said.
“And God doesn’t reveal anything until it is time for the revelation of fullness to come. That’s why generations before us, even the 1990s and others, have said this has nothing to do with Jesus dying on the cross. We don’t understand why he died. He died to pay the price of the 10 northern tribes who were dispersed. The law of the Levirate marriage, (comes into play). That’s why Yeshua came, to pay the penalty so the tribes could come back home.”
