I am the Vine, You Are The Natsariym (Branches)


I am the Vine, You Are The Natsariym (Branches)

YOCHANON (JOHN) 15:5 YAHUSHA said “He was the vine and we are the Natsariym (Branches)” 

To help you to understand the Scriptural application regarding Grafting let us use the Citrus Trees to make it a simple illustration so it will easily be understood. 

Grafting verb [ trans. ] 1 Horticulture insert (a scion) as a graft : it was common to graft different varieties onto a single tree trunk.

• insert a graft on (a stock).

Let’s say we have an Orange Tree and we strip it of all its Orange Branches. What we can do now is Graft in, the trunk of that Orange Tree, a Grapefruit branch, a Lemon branch, a Lime branch and a Tangerine branch. With all these different Citrus branches grafted in the Orange Tree, what kind of fruit do you think they will bare? 

Well one thing they will not bare is Oranges. For each Branch will produce of its own the fruit of its origin. Even though each is getting its life’s flow from the Orange Tree they can only produce of it’s kind. The Grapefruit branch can only produce Grapefruit. Same as the Lemon, Lime and Tangerine. 

However, if that Orange Tree ever produces a Branch of It’s Own Or It’s Own Original Branch Grafted Back In …What Fruit will it bare? What Fruit will it bare do you think? Yes Oranges. It can not produce another Grapefruit, Lemon and so on even if it is giving life to the other branches. The Original Root, Trunk and Branch will produce Only Oranges.

I said all that to say this. 

As taught in John 15:5 YAHUSHA said “He was the vine and we are the Natsariym (Branches)” 

What I see in this picture is, that so many religious denominations, religious organizations and even religious independent fellowships have failed to produce the Life of YAHUSHA on this earth. Though they are connected to The Source they still fail to Produces what the Original Tree and Root is….. They can only produce more of their own particular brand of Religiosity … 

All they have been able to do at best is produce more of what they are of their own kind…. 

Even though they are receiving their spiritual life’s blood from The Vine. 

But look at this…. 

When The Vine itself produces more Natsariym (Branches) of Its own what do you think It will produce? Maybe a people much like Himself?

What Fruit do you think they will produce in this land? 

Perhaps The Fruit of the Set-Apart Spirit. A bunch of Scripture/Torah believing YAHUSHA Followers called Natsariym You Think?


I AM the Vine of Truth, and my Father is the Husbandman.

Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am the Vine, ye are the NATSARIYM: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.


Who Are The Natsariym?

We are the (Branches) Watchmen, The Natsariym, as spoken of by the Prophets (Old Testament) and in the Brit Hadasaha (New Testament). The first followers of YAHUSHA were known of as a sect called the Natsariym (Nazarene). They were not accepted by the teachers of Judaism nor the early Christian church.

1 Peter 4:16: But if one suffers being Natsariym, let him not be ashamed, but let him esteem YAHUAH ELOHIYM in this matter.

If anything I guess it would be something like The Natsariym were known to follow The Way and were easily identified due to their use of the Name. The name of our Elohiym was outlawed and not to be used by those practicing Judaism. The Natsariym used His name regularly as did YAHUSHA. They also did not teach the traditions of Judaism, referred to as the traditions of men. For these reasons the religious leaders of the Jews had YAHUSHA put to death on the Tree. Little did they know this was all to fulfill prophecy.

The Natsariym follow the Torah of YAHUAH and accept the salvation granted by the sacrifice of YAHUSHA. The Torah of YAHUAH did not pass way with the death of YAHUSHA. The Torah is eternal and was followed perfectly by YAHUSHA; making the him the perfect sinless sacrifice for us. Now the Natsariym are coming forward again to guard The Way of YAHUAH and His son YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH.

Revelation 12:17: And the dragon was enraged with the woman and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of ELOHIYM and possessing the witness of YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH (The Natsariym).


1 At the same time, [2185] says YHUH, will I be the Elohim of all the mishpachot of Yisrael, [2186] and they shall be My people-Ami.

2 This says YHUH, The people who were left of the sword found favor in the wilderness; [2187] even Yisrael, when I went to cause him to rest.

3 YHUH has appeared of old to me, saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting ahava: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you. [2188]

4 Again I will rebuild you, [2189] and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Yisrael: [2190] you shall again take up your tambourines and shall go forth in the dances [2191] of them that make simcha.

5 You shall yet plant vines upon the mountains of Shomron: [2192] the planters shall plant and shall treat them as normal.

6 For there shall be a yom, [2193] that the called out Netsarim-Notsrim [2194] the ones who watch on the Mount Efrayim shall cry, Arise and let us go up to Tzion to YHUH our Elohim. [2195]

7 For this says YHUH; Sing with simcha for Yaakov and shout among the chief of the nations: [2196] publish hallel saying, YHUH, has saved your people, the remnant of Yisrael. [2197]

8 See, I will bring them from the north country and gather them from the ends of the earth and with them the blind and the lame, [2198] the woman with child and her that labors with child together: a great congregation-kahal gadol [2199] shall shuv here. [2200]

9 They shall come with weeping and with tefillot I will lead them: [2201] I will cause them to walk by the rivers of mayim in a straight derech, [2202] in which they shall not stumble: for I AM an Abba to Yisrael and Efrayim is My firstborn-bachor. [2203]

10 Hear The Word of YHUH, O you nations and declare it in the coastlands far off and say, He that scattered Yisrael will gather him and keep him, as a Shepherd [2204] does His flock. [2205]

Jeremiah (Yirmeyahu) 31:1-10 RSTNE


[2185] Age to come.

[2186] Jeremiah 31:1 is a definitive proclamation from YAH , that at the time of Jacob’s (twelve tribes) return from all the lands of their dispersion, YAH will once again be the Master of all the tribes of Yisrael. 

[2187] Salvation, regeneration and unmerited favor, all are found in the wilderness of the nations for both houses, prior to their physical return. 

[2188] YAH speaking to His beloved Yisrael. 

[2189] YAH – not man – does the building. 

[2190] All Yisrael – i.e., both houses – will be rebuilt and return together. Notice Efrayim does not meet Judah in the land, but returns together with them from the nations, in the rebuilding by YAH through His Son. 

[2191] Hebraic dancing and a growth in its interest, is also a sign that the daughter of Zion is being rebuilt. 

[2192] Capital of Efrayim, showing YAH’s full intention to bring Efrayim home. 

[2193] Seventh-Day, or seven thousandth year since Adam. 

[2194] In the course of time, the former northern territory of the land of Yisrael became known as Samaria and the occupants of that land as Samaritans. 

These were a mixed breed of Efrayimite, food-growing landowners and Assyrian colonists. Many Scriptures prophetically speak of a future day in the days around the time of the end of the exile, during which Notzrim will inhabit these same mountains of Samaria. 

These prophetic Scriptures reveal the glorious plan of The Father to turn these idolatrous territories into one of the future home bases of the Notzrim of Yisrael. 

The word Notzrim speaks of watchmen (guards) appointed by YAH and assigned to the task of watching over the restoration of all Yisrael. Scripture refers to the Mountains of Efrayim (Samaria), which will produce the watchmen (guards) of the last days. 

The late Rabbi Isidor Zwirn, of blessed memory, a Messianic Jew, confirmed this in his extensive research on the term Notzrei-Yisrael, which he defined as “Christian believers.” He states: “Isaiah 11:1 clinched my acceptance of Messiah HaNotzrei as the preserver of the twelve tribes of Yisrael and the founding Father of the Notzrim.” 

Another traditional Jew, Ben Cohen, states:

“the way watchmen has been translated in our Bibles, it’s a wonder we can see it right. The word is notzrim and the root is natzar. The real explanation of the word in Hebrew is to safe keep, to keep until a later time, to hide it in a way that will be revealed later. But now take into consideration that the book of Jeremiah, of course, was written before there was Christianity. 

You look for a clue as to how it came about that Jeremiah used a word that was not used in his day at all and it is the word used in Hebrew for Christians today. And it is translated ‘preserved ones of Yisrael’ (Isaiah 49:6, Isaac Lesser Edition) in English.

Elsewhere it is translated as “watchmen.” The word netzer is used only three times in the Bible (First Covenant) and everywhere it is mentioned it has to do only with Efrayim. It’s amazing.” 

[2195] Efrayim will long for and cry out to Judah for a mutual and equitable return. 

[2196] In context, Efrayim as the Nazarenes, or “watchmen” are to cry out in all nations that Messiah has come for atonement and return from the exile. 

[2197] All believers must publish these good tidings. 

[2198] Spiritually. 

[2199] The Hebrew here is kahal gadol, or “a large congregation.” The congregation of Renewed Covenant Yisrael, consisting of the large remnant of the 12 tribes that once stood at Mt. Sinai.

[2200] The “catching away” is the regathering of both houses back to the land. 

[2201] YAH leads us back to the land, not man. 

[2202] Torah. 

[2203] Here YAH states that it is Efrayim (later to become the ten-tribes of Yisrael) that is always and eternally His firstborn. As YAH’s eternal firstborn, he comes to a time of repentance through the Renewed Covenant. 

It is at that time that YAH will be Master over all the tribes, or clans of Yisrael, according to Jeremiah 31:1. 

The one returning as part of the great congregation from the nations is Efrayim, YAH’s firstborn. Hebrews 12:23 confirms the centrality and spiritual primacy of firstborn Yisrael, the redeemed gathering and “congregation of the firstborn, having been enrolled in heaven….” YAH says that all believers make up the membership of the “congregation of firstborn Yisrael,” whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.

[2204] Messiah. 

[2205] All Yisrael will return by the same one who was responsible for the scattering.
