Greetings from India – Meet the Zecharyahs!

Peaceful Greetings!

We are Joel and Anisha Zecharyah.

It’s easier to find a gigantic diamond in your drain, than to find one genuine fellow believer in Yeshua, the Loving and Living Torah.

But, being inspired by our Father when he told Elijah, I have 7000 others who haven’t bowed down to baal. Turns out we’re definitely no special, there are more learned scholars like Beit Yeshua Torah Assembly, that truly makes me celebrate when I wake up each day, with hope and cheer, a complete 360 degree shift from the wilderness phase we’ve experienced in our own lives.

We fell into the truth and got gently pushed into it, and eventually rocked into the stormy waters, and now taking it all in in the comforting and peaceful shore, all by the hands of our loving Father in the year 2020, during the covid break when the work-related hustle came to an abrupt halt due to the regulations in our country.

The Father surely knows how to reveal Himself to the ones He chooses, and he also knows the kind of journey we all need to go through to be pruned through it and made ready for his coming Kingdom.

A bit about us.

We have been married for about 4 years now, and we are 25 years old. We are from the land of India.

We’re super stoked and jolted by an ecstatic feeling that community brings, as we’ve felt lonesome for quite a bit, because we didn’t want to settle for any community but the one grafted in the truth to avoid polluting our minds with any false teachings and traditions. Additionally, it is tough to find Torah-keeping people in India as it is predominantly a Hindu land.

So, we found no one, as yet. It’s been just the 2 of us on this walk.

(Isaiah 52:6 NKJV)

Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: ‘Behold, it is I.’ ”

Competence at the very core.

It’s almost second nature to some people to be a certain way. For example, Anisha and I can’t help but be ideators, creative rebels or whatever you may call our earthly pursuits. We have come across many noteworthy, meritorious men across our journey, all aspiring to be little versions of the Prophet Samuel with a ton of advice (all rooted in a doctrine of extreme worldliness, essentially lawlessness, without the mention of Elohim) up their sleeves. We were repelled by not most, ALL of them. We gingerly slid away together, clinging to YHWH and Yeshua as one should.


Woe to you when all men speak well of you, For so did their fathers to the false prophets.”

 (Luke 6:26 NKJV)

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

(1 John 4:1 NKJV)

We have many failings and go hard on ourselves daily for the areas we never will hit a homerun on. So, my wife Anisha kept seeking to find someone across this double-edged place called the internet. She landed on the not-so-pushed on digital algorithms and not-so-pushy individual, named Mr. Patrick McGuire. After watching some of his teachings in a marathon-maneuver through the truth, immediately, we snapped our fingers and we said THIS IS IT.    We call him Rabbi because Rabbi means teacher in the Hebrew language.

Rabbi Patrick is resourceful, a Bible-scholar, a phenomenal teacher, an enigmatic gentleman who clearly looks content with the path he’s chosen in life. The loved one’s around him are surely a blessing to his fiery wisdom-fueled mind, so that the Scripture can reach, spread and multiply like the parable of the seed in the Book of Mark.

(Mark 4:26-29 NKJV)

And He said,
“The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

I’m sure he had many grim days where he was second guessing to continue this ride through the pessimistic waters within ourselves. But after another meal from heaven, like Elijah and an in-spiriting touch from Above, we’re all supernaturally empowered to continue the indefinite quest and to be filled with fuel to go another bout. Long story short, the resemblances to our ideal vision of a modern-day assembly of believers, just like the Book of the Acts of the Apostles, was uncanny to say the least.


“So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the assembly daily those who were being saved.”

(Acts 2:46-47 NKJV)

We are natural fault-finders.

This comes with being a truth-seeker to see right through the glass for any potential speck of dust. Not claiming in the least bit that anyone can be as perfect as our Messiah, but this particular group and their tight-knit unit striving forward in a day of strife, envy and contention is an exemplary feat of how we must serve no purpose except the scroll from the Kingdom of The Most High God.

Rabbi Patrick is a fearless, ingenious warrior who isn’t afraid to dive deep into the truth. He’s a treasure chest of accurate knowledge, all backed with factual arguments you can’t win against, even if one wore their fanciest costume, with a hat, staff and everything.

Rabbi Patrick and his beloved congregation fill the fallible side we inhabit as two 25-year-olds, to not know the minute fabric of facts, and guess what? We’ll never reach the level of understanding and knowledge he has, as he is uniquely called for this purpose. But, the Father has placed this spiritual father-figure to in-spirit us with in-depth spiritual and scriptural insights topped with historical knowledge, fueling the fight within us, with an instrument of sure-footed wisdom and understanding.

A powerbank to our limitations.

It’s safe to say, he, along with his highly collaborative congregation are bound in LOVE, TRUTH and PURPOSE. Our discouraged and downcast days have been manifold, there are no bells and whistles, roses and marigolds in this pursuit of truth.
But HOPE has hit us like an endearing boulder after we discovered and got in touch at an ordained time, with someone in a completely different sphere of the four-winds. It’s the iconic event where the internet has been exploited and the scattered flock has been gathered together by the Master of Hosts.

If there’s anyone we’d like to fall behind and subject ourselves to, it’s Rabbi Patrick and his congregation. Mr. Mark, his administrative powerhouse and all his beautiful Bible study partners, have truly strung a chord of grit and vigor within us to get even more factually straightened up. It’s safe to say… We are students of Rabbi Patrick and his assembly that’s set apart, and deeply-rooted in the truth. We love you Beit Yeshua Torah Assembly and will always turn only to your channel for any scriptural guidance.

We know the word of the Father never fails and will go to and fro the earth, through whatever means as we’re all potential instruments of glory or objects of wrath in His hand. We can attempt to influence the depth of our predestination, and exploit the present day interconnectedness for the double-edged sword, The Torah to cut through the 4 winds of the earth, convicting many in the truth and achieving the Messiah’s actualized vision of a grandeur table spread with the righteous, His subjects that He will testify in favor of and attest to.


“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’


(Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV)

For those wanting to start out, but don’t know how, a statement from us, worth reflecting upon –

It’s good to know a little of the Torah. Rather than know a lot of Bupkis. (Alongside many intellectual truths, we learnt this informal word from Rabbi Patrick.)
Packing it all in with a poetic punch –

A Teacher, Not A Preacher
A teacher, not a preacher
Is a Rabbi we dearly know
Scripture-bound truth-seeker
No fuzzy emotional sermons in his flow.

Many proclaim “peace-peace”
Baseless love alongside.
Rabbi and his congregation are exemplary,
The path’s anything but “Wide”.

Our Torah-Train Pilot
The Narrow Path
Appears dark and lonely,
Especially in the start.

The Book of Samuel,
Even the bulls made wise
Swaying not to the left or to the right,
Maneuvering through the well-concealed lies.

We must sign up
For being obedient bulls,
Rather than being wolves
A bunch of half-fulls.

Exhilarating milestones,
Arduous journey of rewarding handcarts.
Rabbi Patrick our teacher, his assembly
Hold a place of high-regard in our hearts.


Anisha and I always choose solitude over a room full of men the world considers meritorious. We were quite skeptical about ourselves at times, whether we weren’t being tolerant enough, or if we were being too hardlined. We slammed many doors behind us though the adversarial voice
within us screamed CYNICAL!

But we chose the brutality of truth rather than the honey-laden costumed lies masquerading as The Truth.

In all honesty, we’re not big on soothsaying or soothsayers. I’d use whatever means to get rid of any latching on of a liar.

And YHWH said to me, “The prophets’ prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart.

(Jeremiah 14:14)

We do not want this piece to be misconstrued and brushed away as an account of flattery, rather we want it to be received as what it really is. Which is – Our honest declaration of what we found to be true, after coming across a bunch of insincere and lying thieves using the faith as a means to earn a quick buck.

This write-up is for the reader to sift through the noise of prosperity- preachers, sugar-coating teachers and blasphemy bearers, all speaking volumes with no substance or even a whiff of truth and factuality. All talk, and no substance.
This is for those interested, to follow our trajectory to speeden-up the process of deep-diving into the truth. But please feel free to do your own due-diligence and testing as it’s not Sunday mental-candy for everyone.

So, once again, going all in, into what we have conclusively and introspectively discerned, Rabbi Patrick and Beit Yeshua Torah Assembly to be the go-to place and we will draw out every ounce of collaborative and contributive energy to further strengthen mighty-warriors like his
congregation and team.

With finesse,

Anisha & Joel
