The Third Sabbatical Year of the 119th Jubilee Cycle

Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

I am writing to you from Israel at this time. I have some small points to share before we get this weeks study.

The Kinneret currently stands at 212.81 meters below sea level, 19 centimeters above the recommended red line. Israel’s rainy season is nearing its end. This is occurring as there is already a water shortage in the land of Israel.

On another note I have had premonitions of an earthquake coming to the land of Israel on a High Holy Day. I do not believe in premonitions and I am reluctant to mention it. Many of us have not been able to find accommodations after Passover, forcing us to leave Jerusalem and stay elsewhere. I have found a room at the Maison de Abraham which is at the very spot where Yahshua was murdered and buried in the Tomb of Joseph of Aramathea. Yes this is near the Red heifer and sin altar spot. But I can only stay there until Nisan 14 and must leave after that. As of this writing we are all wondering where we will stay. It is a very strange and wonderful feeling learning to depend on Yahweh as He guides us all to where He wants us to be.

In the news in Jerusalem when I got here on March 21 were reports of two small earthquakes in the North of Israel. As we have said in the past two News Letters, this third cycle is Pestilence and famines and earthquakes. This third cycle began with Aviv 1 on March 17, 2010 at Sunset.

I had to fly to Zurich from Toronto and I was sitting beside an investment advisor. We got to talking and before I knew it I was teaching him about the Prophecies of Abraham and the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles. He had his seat belt on and kept asking questions. I kept trying not to answer them and ended up explain the book for 4 hours of our trip. He is now going to buy it and read it. Good thing he had his seat belt on.

Then from Zurich to Tel Aviv I sat beside a US Marine coming from Germany to speak to Israel Intelligence about certain matters. We again ended up talking about the end of days. I did not bring it up but I did end up explaining these things. Should be an interesting week for sure.

Now that I am here I am hearing of riots at the Damascus gate and how the Temple Mount faithful Movement is in court seeking permission to sacrifice on the Temple Mount the Passover Lamb. If they do this I will be staying in East Jerusalem where the Messiah was killed as I mentioned above. Last year this was the area that erupted when the Temple Mount Faithful stormed the Al Aksa Mosque. That was just days before I was trying to lead a group of tourist up there to show them why the Temple was never built in this area, but in the City of David. We are living in interesting times, that’s for sure. Keep me in your prayers and those whom are her with us.

If you have read the book the Prophecies of Abraham then you will not be surprised by this next news clip. The book can be bought at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=601

Germany: World’s Third-Largest Arms Exporter
The total value of German arms exports has more than doubled since 2005, making Germany the world’s third-largest weapons exporter, behind just the United States and Russia. German weapons sales now make up 11 percent of world arms trade according to the 2009 annual report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

Most of these exports are armored vehicles, with submarines and warships also making up a large percentage. Turkey is the largest importer of German weapons, followed by Greece—despite its economic troubles—South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Austria and Italy.

As we approach the final days leading up to Passover there has been a great deal of talk on the internet about Passover being next month. Many of these people do not realise that you need to have Barley to make a wave offering. If you wait too long the Barley will re-seed itself and then there will not be enough left for the farmers to harvest. This is why we take the first of the Barley to use when it is ripe so that once this is done on the wave sheaf day then all of Israel can go and begin to harvest the Barley. Some of it is now ready in other places it will ripen soon. If we waited then those whose fields were ready now would lose their crops.

Also in these emails has been a lot of abusive slandering of those who teach that the New year begins now with the first barley being available, namely Michael Rood and Nehemiah Gordon.

I must remind you of the one of the 613 laws we just look at last week. Exodus 22:28 28 “Do not revile Elohim, nor curse a ruler of your people. When you slander or defame someone you are speaking as Satan does. Think about it next time you go to bad mouth someone.

Now others are saying they will not follow Nehemiah Gordon because he is a Jew who does not believe in Yahshua. I find this to be the height of hypocrisy. King David and King Solomon were also Jewish and they did not know Yahshua. Yahshua Himself said He did not come to the house of Judah but to the LOST sheep of the house of Israel. Why did He come to find them? Because they were so messed up in pagan teachings. What was it that He has shown us in the past few years? The Torah. Yahshua told us to pray to the Father not to Him. Yahshua told us to keep the Torah not the things that are being taught in most churches today.

What does Nehemiah Gordon teach, the literal Torah. The exact same thing Yahshua said to keep. Those who say they will not follow the crescent moon or the barley because of Nehemiah Gordon are showing their Christian anti Jewish prejudices. This is exactly where this thinking comes from. Instead of realizing that this Jew by the Name of Nehemiah Gordon is willing to teach you dumb ass Ephramites about the Torah without all the additional things that the rabbinic teachings have added. I believe in Yahshua and I have learned much from Nehemiah.

So if this is your excuse for not keeping the sighted moon and or the barley for the start of the year, then may Yahweh help you because none of us can? But if you can get past the prejudices that we are taught in Christian churches then you can learn much from those who speak Hebrew and have such great credentials as those like Nehemiah and there are many others who want to share with us Ephramites if we would only listen.

We are now ready to begin our week two of the Triennial Torah Readings which you can copy and print off your own.

Gen 2 Here at the beginning of the bible Yahweh Sets in place the Sabbath The seventh day of the week. As we do our torah readings for the days of Unleavened bread I would like all the new people to take special note of the number of times the first day of the week is mentioned and then remember what we have just read in Gen 2.

In Gen 2 Yahweh has blessed the Seventh Day, The Sabbath, which is Saturday. This week I heard on the radio a number of preachers trying to justify not keeping Saturday the Seventh Day of the week in favour of Sunday the first day of the week.

You will read many times during the Days of Unleavened Bread how it was on the first day of the week for this and for that. This was Sunday. But what so many Christians do not grasp and do not understand is that on this first day of the week it was the morrow after the Sabbath. We get this expression from Lev.23 where we are told that on the morrow after the Sabbath we are to make a wave offering.

It is this wave offering, that is the very first of the Barley, which represents Yahshua as He ascended to Heaven as the first of the first fruits and he also led a host of captives with Him. These captives are the other grains of Barley. It was not just one grain that was offered.

They are saying that because Yahshua ascended to heaven on this First day of the week that this is why they now keep Sunday instead of Saturday as the Sabbath.

These false teachers then go on to use the Day of Pentecost as their other proof for the keeping of Sunday as the Lords Day; Pentecost being the day when the Holy Spirit was given to the Apostles. Pentecost is also the day when Yahweh Himself gave the Ten Commandments to Israel from His own mouth and over two million people heard it. What these false teachers refuse to acknowledge is that Pentecost is the fiftieth day and is also the day after the Sabbath. It too is commanded in Lev 23. As is the weekly Sabbath and all the other Holy Days that they selectively refuse to keep. I believe we are going to read the Hidden Meaning of Pentecost at some point. So you can safe that article for later.

What these false teachers are saying is that Yahweh made a mistake by making the Sabbath the day of rest and after Yahshua was murdered He changed it to Sunday. But what they can’t show you is where Yahweh plainly states that the First day is to be kept as the Sabbath, because when Yahweh spoke from Mt Sinai, He made it very plain which day was Shabbat. Leviticus 23 also tells us to keep the Sabbath and many other annual Holy Days Holy. He also tells us to keep the Sunday which falls during the Days of Unleavened Bread as a wave sheaf day and not as a Holy Day. But again in Leviticus 23 we are told to keep the 50th day after this day Holy which is a Sunday.

Do not be fooled any longer by these lying vipers, who twist the truth in order to keep you from the truth of the scriptures. Stand up to their lies and begin to study and prove the truth which is overwhelming at times.

Also here in Chapter 2 Yahweh tells us of the Garden of Eden. When I was at Noah`s Ark in 2007 I was at the western end of Eden where the water gushes out of the Ground. This would represent the Holy of Holies in the Temple when we compare Eden with the Temple. Just as the Gihon Spring in Jerusalem gushed up from below the Temple and was piped to the Solomon’s Laver, so too in the western end of the Garden of Eden, a river gushed up out of the ground and still does so today. I have drunk from this water. That river was the Gihon but today is known as the Aras. You can read all about the Garden in this article at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=26 This is a great study for all you Moms who are doing Home schooling. A ggreat lesson in geography and how to read your bibles.

At the end of Chapter 2 woman is made and the world has never been the same since. I am so thankful for women, most of the time. LOL.
As I read Joshua 5 I find it interesting after we just did the study last week to once again be talking about circumcision.

I have to jump in here with this one verse at this time. Joshua 5:11 And they ate of the stored grain of the land on the morrow after the Passover, unleavened bread and roasted grain on this same day.

It is this one verse that many people use to justify keeping the wave sheaf the day after Passover. Which is exactly what this verse says. But as you read the rest of this study you will see that this is a ploy that Satan will use to deceive you. Using a scripture and ignoring others. When people say that the wave sheaf is the day after Passover they ignore other scriptures.

Lev 23: 9 And ???? spoke to Mosheh, saying, 10 “Speak to the children of Yisra’?l, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before ????, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it.

These people say that this verse in Lev 23 proves that the Wave sheaf is after the Passover or after the15th of Nisan which is the first Holy Day of Unleavened Bread. If we just had these two verses then they might have a case. But first the word for Sabbath here is Strongs # 7676 which means a weekly Sabbath. If it was a High Holy Day the word would have been Strongs # 7677 Sabbathon which it is not. But then we have the next section in Lev to also read.

15 ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. 16 ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to ????. 17 ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ?phah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to ????.
You are to count 7 Sabbaths; that is 7 Saturdays, and then the next day after the 7th Saturday is this next wave offering of Pentecost.
As we all know Passover can come on any day of the week and in the days of Joshua that Passover just so happened to fall of Saturday and so the next day was the Wave Sheaf day because it was always to fall on Sunday. The wave sheaf represents Yahshua who rose from the dead Saturday afternoon and ascended to heaven Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon Yahshua was allowing people to touch Him where as when Mary saw Him she could not touch Him. Why? John 20: 16 ????? said to her, “Miryam!” She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 ????? said to her, “Do not hold on to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My Elohim and your Elohim

If the wave sheaf is on the 16th of Nisan and can fall on any day of the week, then do the count to fifty from this day, whether it be Monday or Thursday, fifty days later would be on either the Tuesday or the Friday, yet in Lev 23 we are told to count 7 Sabbaths and on the morrow after the 7th Sabbath or the 49th day is the day of Pentecost. But in the example I have used Monday or Tuesday or Thursday or Friday are not Sabbath days.
So the wave sheaf is on Sunday after the weekly Sabbath and not after the High Holy Day unless the High Holy day is on the Weekly Sabbath.
In verse 6 it speaks of a land flowing with milk and honey. Have you ever thought on this; that is on the land flowing with Milk and Honey? What does this mean?

In Numbers 11 the Israelites were grumbling again and yet for 40 years Yahweh gave them Manna to eat. 4 Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: “Who will give us meat to eat? 5 We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic; 6 but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!” 7 Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color like the color of bdellium. 8 The people went about and gathered it, ground it on millstones or beat it in the mortar, cooked it in pans, and made cakes of it; and its taste was like the taste of pastry prepared with oil. 9 And when the dew fell on the camp in the night, the manna fell on it. 10 Then Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, everyone at the door of his tent; and the anger of Yahweh was greatly aroused; Moses also was displeased.

The Manna was the size of Coriander seeds and it was white in colour. And note it came after the Dew fell on the camp. It came in a mist or even in a cloud.

Exodus 3: 8 So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.

Exodus 16: 1 And they journeyed from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came to the Wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they departed from the land of Egypt. 2 Then the whole congregation of the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness. 3 And the children of Israel said to them, “Oh, that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to the full! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.” 4 Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not. 5 And it shall be on the sixth day that they shall prepare what they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.” 6 Then Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, “At evening you shall know that Yahweh has brought you out of the land of Egypt. 7 And in the morning you shall see the glory of Yahweh; for He hears your complaints against Yahweh. But what are we, that you complain against us?” 8 Also Moses said, “This shall be seen when Yahweh gives you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to the full; for Yahweh hears your complaints which you make against Him. And what are we? Your complaints are not against us but against Yahweh.” 9 Then Moses spoke to Aaron, “Say to all the congregation of the children of Israel, ‘Come near before Yahweh, for He has heard your complaints.’ ” 10 Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of Yahweh appeared in the cloud. 11 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, ‘At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. And you shall know that I am Yahweh your Elohim.’ ” 13 So it was that quails came up at evening and covered the camp, and in the morning the dew lay all around the camp. 14 And when the layer of dew lifted, there, on the surface of the wilderness, was a small round substance, as fine as frost on the ground. 15 So when the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, “This is the bread which Yahweh has given you to eat. 16 This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded: ‘Let every man gather it according to each one’s need, one omer for each person, according to the number of persons; let every man take for those who are in his tent.’ ” 17 Then the children of Israel did so and gathered, some more, some less. 18 So when they measured it by omers, he who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack. Every man had gathered according to each one’s need. 19 And Moses said, “Let no one leave any of it till morning.” 20 Notwithstanding they did not heed Moses. But some of them left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and stank. And Moses was angry with them. 21 So they gathered it every morning, every man according to his need. And when the sun became hot, it melted. 22 And so it was, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. 23 Then he said to them, “This is what Yahweh has said: ‘Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest, a holy Sabbath to Yahweh. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning.’ ” 24 So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it. 25 Then Moses said, “Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to Yahweh; today you will not find it in the field. 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, there will be none.” 27 Now it happened that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none. 28 And Yahweh said to Moses, “How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My laws? 29 See! For Yahweh has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth day bread for two days. Let every man remain in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. 31 And the house of Israel called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. 32 Then Moses said, “This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded: ‘Fill an omer with it, to be kept for your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.’ ” 33 And Moses said to Aaron, “Take a pot and put an omer of manna in it, and lay it up before Yahweh, to be kept for your generations.” 34 As Yahweh
