I received this "news letter" shortly after the date of this meeting where Ralph Bethea admitted that everything he had said about finding scriptural documents in Iraq was false, thereby making the version called the OSE1 and other names a phony. In other words, he admitted to being a liar and a fraud concerning the word of Yahuwah and His Son Yahushua.
We had a meeting with Dr Ralph C Bethea (aka RaphAH) on the 12th of Feb 2012 in Pretoria South Africa.
I am a fraud and a liar
In this meeting we exposed "RaphAH" of being a fraud and a liar. We proved that he did not find the "Original Scriptures", nor does he have a team of translators working on any "Original Scriptures manuscripts". We proved that he copied and pasted from a old English bible, and then used the "find and replace" function in the word processing program to change a few details to suite his false doctrine.
Here is a post that someone left of the report of the meeting:
"Dear brothers and sisters in The Faith in YHWH, YAH, YAHU, YAHUWsha, Yahushua, Yeshua, Y'shua, The Messiah (Savior). PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF WHAT IS OFFICIALLY & PUBLICLY broadcasted ABOUT RaphAH and The King's Covenant E1 in S.A.
I have just received this very disturbing e-mail with a very serious "Verdict" attached to it for all readers in Afrikaans sent out to thousands of YHWH BELIEVERS IN S.A. This is the 'Official Findings and Outcome' of all the Proceedings and Meetings held between Dr. Ralph Bethea and 40 educated and trusted educated members of The Family of YHWH here in S.A. who all loves Father YHWH and His Son in Blood Covenant with Him. Most of this is in Afrikaans, but the attachments are in English.
In Short it says the following (in great detail below in Afrikaans) translated to English:
That Dr. Ralph Bethea has BEEN FOUND GUILTY to being 'a liar and thief' in S.A. by a 40 member delegate of Elders in The Faith in S.A. who has found much evidence against him personally and his OSE-1 Distributed by him AS The ONLY Original Scriptures "translated" from Ancient ROS Texts.
The Meeting and Delegates Concluded that:
- THERE ARE NO ROS TEXTS FOUND by Ralph Bethea.
- The King's Covenant is NOT THE ORIGINAL WORD OF YAH, and
- The King's Covenant E1 IS NOT COPYRIGHTED in USA, nor IN S.A. which false statements made by Ralph Bethea in the Preface, is another lie in writing in The King's Covenant E1.
- Ralph admitted to using The English Living Translation (An Open Source Electronic Bible) and he has PLAGIARIZE IT himself to produce The King's Covenant E1 electronically on his own computer, therefore it CAN NOT BE COPYRIGHTED anywhere!
- He said originally that 77 Scrolls were found in Iraq, actually 75, which became 240 Ancient Scrolls "found" on his latest statements and RECORDINGS of HOW HE FOUND THEM, also tested to be more lies and inconsistent accounts given.
- There is NO PROOF nor any concrete evidence and Ralph Bethea was NOT IN IRAQ nor in IRAN during the time "HE SAID that HE FOUND THESE SCROLLS" and NO Passport Stamps nor Airline Tickets nor Airline Bookings to confirm his entry in 2001-2002.
- There IS NO TRANSLATION OF PALEO-HEBREW into ENGLISH being CONDUCTED in The Himalaya mountains, which was found to be another lie of Ralph Bethea.
- Ralph Bethea is accused of being A HUGE STUMBLING BLOCK TO MANY YOUNG BELIEVERS AND SEEKERS IN South Africa, and that he LIED AND STOLE IN THE NAME OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, which is shameful and destructive in his spirit and nature. Therefore, Ralph Bethea must now be treated AS A TAX COLLECTOR AND UNBELIEVER in YAHU according to Numbers 25:1-13, Matt 18:5-6 en 1 Corinth 5:1-5 instead of him now hiding behind Matt 18:15-18.
- The Family of YAH in S.A. jointly hereby INFORMS THE PUBLIC in S.A. TO DISTANCE THEMSELVES from Ralph Bethea and his wordless behavior and actions ALL done IN THE NAME OF YHWH, and they call all Seekers and 'young believers in The Faith' to call them for personal counseling and talks about this whole issue and the way forward. 0l>
The GREAT LESSON TO BE LEARNED FROM THIS whole SAGA: "Don't trust any man, even if he comes to you in the Name of YHWH." Remember that Our Faith is NOT based upon any man, but upon our ETERNAL KING YHWH in Heaven.
Now BE VERY careful whom you BLINDLY follow and associate yourself with, in the future. We are instructed to Work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.
Also See the attachments for further insight into the whole matter and the allegations brought before Ralph Bethea and ongoing investigations conducted also in USA by The Family of YAH there.
A DVD will soon be made available with the whole 4 hour Meeting Proceeding on it, for all to see and hear for themselves recorded by brother Dirk. E- mail addresses attached of the Investigators.

We humbly apologize for all the inconvenience and terrible loss we have caused you and your families, by perpetuating lies of Dr. Ralph Bethea (EliYAH, EliYAHUW, servant Raphael), also known as Elder RaphAH BethYAH of YAsarel West (YAsharel) USA.
We thank Abba YHWH for revealing to us in His Way and Perfect Timing, all the secrets and evil works of deception done by the destroyer who only comes to kill, steal and destroy from His Seeking Children.
We are NOT orphans, nor victims, but WE ARE SET FREE BY YAHU and WE WILL OVERCOME ALSO THIS ATTACK from the enemy, together as The Blood Covenant Family of The Most High YHWH.
Shalom and thank you."
