We were watching and looking to see if indeed the Temple Mount group was in fact going to sacrifice a lamb on the Temple Mount as they said they would in order to bring an end to this pandemic that now grips the whole world.

We looked for any reports that would confirm this. There was an article that said the Knesset was considering allowing it to take place.

But as far as I can glean no such event took place this year.

There was a pink super moon on this second Passover. But it is not recorded in NASA’s lunar eclipses.

The next Penumbral Lunar Eclipse is this coming June 5. The anniversary of the Covenant made with many. The UNEP now called the Paris Accord. As you can see, the moon passes through the shadow of the earth and is what is known as a dark moon and not a blood moon.

But there were the following pictures. So I do not know what to make of these, if anything at all.

A beautiful pic of pink supermoon with Brighton Pier in foreground

 

The night sky put on a spectacular show around the globe on Tuesday evening as the “pink” April supermoon — the biggest and brightest of the year — was visible for millions.
Supermoons occur when the moon is at its closest approach to Earth, making it appear brighter and bigger in the night sky than usual.
Although this supermoon is known as a pink moon, it is not actually pink in color. As the first supermoon of spring, it gets its name from a native North American wildflower that blooms in early spring: Phlox subulata, known as “moss pink.”
As well as the professionals, budding photographers and supermoon fans around the world took to social media to share their best snaps.
This Sabbath is the 17th of the 2nd month. This is the day upon which Yehovah started the flood.

Gen 7:11  In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in this day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the heavens were opened up.

Gen 7:12  And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

If we count 40 days from April 11, that would bring us to May 21. I do not know if this means anything at all. I am merely showing you this. We continue to look for something on Shavuot on either May 3rd and or on May 31st. And now I see something else maybe???

I hope to share it with you next week. Time is now out and I need to finish this news letter.

Day Thirty | Yehovah & His People (Part I) Psalm 78:1-16

Psa 78:1   My people, give ear to my Torah, Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
Psa 78:2  I open my mouth in a parable; I utter riddles of old,
Psa 78:3  Which we have heard and known, For our fathers have related them to us.
Psa 78:4  We do not hide them from their children, Relating to the generation to come the praises of Yehovah, And His strength and His wonders which He has done.
Psa 78:5  For He raised a witness in Ya?aqo?, And set a Torah in Yisra’?l, Which He commanded our fathers, To teach them to their children;
Psa 78:6  That it might be known to a generation to come, To children who would be born, To rise up and relate them to their children,
Psa 78:7  And place their trust in Elohim, And not forget the works of ?l, But watch over His commands,
Psa 78:8  And not be like their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation which did not prepare its heart, Whose spirit was not steadfast to ?l.
Psa 78:9  The children of Ephrayim, armed bowmen, Turned back in the day of battle.
Psa 78:10  They did not guard the covenant of Elohim, And they refused to walk in His Torah,
Psa 78:11  And they forgot His deeds And His wonders which He had shown them.
Psa 78:12  He did wonders in the sight of their fathers, In the land of Mitsrayim, in the field of Tso?an.
Psa 78:13  He split the sea and caused them to pass through, And He made the waters stand up like a heap,
Psa 78:14  And led them with the cloud by day, And all the night with a light of fire.
Psa 78:15  He split the rocks in the wilderness, And made them drink, as from the great depths,
Psa 78:16  And brought forth streams from the rock, And caused waters to come down as rivers.

Today is the third day of the fifth week of seven weeks. Today is the thirty-first day of the counting of fifty days from the day of the waving of the Omer on the morrow after the Sabbath.

Psa 67:1  Elohim does favour us and bless us, Cause His face to shine upon us. Selah.
Psa 67:2  For Your way to be known on earth, Your deliverance among all nations.
Psa 67:3  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim, Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:4  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You judge the peoples uprightly, And lead the nations on earth. Selah.
Psa 67:5  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim; Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:6  The earth shall give her increase; Elohim, our own Elohim, blesses us!
Psa 67:7  Elohim blesses us! And all the ends of the earth fear Him!

Day Thirty-One | Yehovah & His People (Part II) Psalm 78:17-31

Psa 78:17  Yet they sinned still more against Him To rebel against the Most High in the desert.
Psa 78:18  And they tried ?l in their heart By asking food according to their desire.
Psa 78:19  And they spoke against Elohim. They said, “Is ?l able to set a table in the wilderness?
Psa 78:20  “Look, He struck the rock, So that the waters gushed out, And the streams overflowed. Is He able to give bread also? Would He provide meat for His people?”
Psa 78:21  Therefore Yehovah heard, and He was wroth; So a fire was kindled against Ya?aqo?, And displeasure also came up against Yisra’?l,
Psa 78:22  Because they did not believe in Elohim, Neither did they trust in His deliverance.
Psa 78:23  Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of the heavens,
Psa 78:24  And He rained down manna on them to eat, And He gave them the grain of the heavens.
Psa 78:25  Men ate bread of the mighty; He sent them provisions to satisfaction.
Psa 78:26  He made an east wind blow in the heavens; And by His power He brought in the south wind.
Psa 78:27  And He rained meat on them like the dust, And winged birds like the sand of the seas,
Psa 78:28  And let them fall in the midst of His camp, All around His Dwelling Place.
Psa 78:29  So they ate and were completely satisfied, For He brought them what they desired.
Psa 78:30  They had not turned away from their desire, Their food was still in their mouths,
Psa 78:31  When the wrath of Elohim came against them, And He killed among their fat ones, And He struck down the choice ones of Yisra’?l.

Today is the fourth day of the fifth week of seven weeks. Today is the thirty-second day of the counting of fifty days from the day of the waving of the Omer on the morrow after the Sabbath.

Psa 67:1  Elohim does favour us and bless us, Cause His face to shine upon us. Selah.
Psa 67:2  For Your way to be known on earth, Your deliverance among all nations.
Psa 67:3  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim, Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:4  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You judge the peoples uprightly, And lead the nations on earth. Selah.
Psa 67:5  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim; Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:6  The earth shall give her increase; Elohim, our own Elohim, blesses us!
Psa 67:7  Elohim blesses us! And all the ends of the earth fear Him!

Day Thirty-Two | Yehovah & His People (Part III) Psalm 78:32-39

Psa 78:32  In spite of all this they still sinned, And did not believe in His wonders.
Psa 78:33  So He ended their days in a breath, And their years in trouble.
Psa 78:34  When He killed them, then they sought Him, And they returned and did earnestly seek ?l.
Psa 78:35  And they remembered that Elohim was their rock, And the Most High ?l their redeemer.
Psa 78:36  But they flattered Him with their mouth, And they lied to Him with their tongue,
Psa 78:37  For their heart was not steadfast with Him, And they were not true to His covenant.
Psa 78:38  But He, the Compassionate One, Pardoned crookedness, And did not destroy them. And many a time He turned His displeasure away, And did not stir up all His wrath.
Psa 78:39  For He remembered that they were but flesh, A passing breath that does not return.

Today is the fifth day of the fifth week of seven weeks. Today is the thirty-third day of the counting of fifty days from the day of the waving of the Omer on the morrow after the Sabbath.

Psa 67:1  Elohim does favour us and bless us, Cause His face to shine upon us. Selah.
Psa 67:2  For Your way to be known on earth, Your deliverance among all nations.
Psa 67:3  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim, Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:4  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You judge the peoples uprightly, And lead the nations on earth. Selah.
Psa 67:5  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim; Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:6  The earth shall give her increase; Elohim, our own Elohim, blesses us!
Psa 67:7  Elohim blesses us! And all the ends of the earth fear Him!

Day Thirty-Three | Yehovah & His People (Part IV) | Psalm 78:40-55

Psa 78:40  How often they rebelled against Him in the wilderness, And grieved Him in the desert!
Psa 78:41  And again and again they tried ?l, And provoked the Set-apart One of Yisra’?l.
Psa 78:42  They did not remember His hand, The day when He redeemed them from the adversary,
Psa 78:43  How He worked His signs in Mitsrayim, And His wonders in the field of Tso?an.
Psa 78:44  He turned their rivers into blood, And they could not drink their streams.
Psa 78:45  He sent among them swarms of flies which devoured them, And frogs which destroyed them,
Psa 78:46  And gave their crops to the caterpillar, And their labour to the locust.
Psa 78:47  He destroyed their vines with hail, And their sycamore trees with frost,
Psa 78:48  And gave their beasts over to the hail, And their livestock to bolts of fire.
Psa 78:49  He sent on them the burning of His displeasure, Wrath, and rage, and distress, A deputation of messengers of evils.
Psa 78:50  He made a path for His displeasure; He did not spare their being from death, But gave their life over to the plague.
Psa 78:51  And He struck all the first-born in Mitsrayim, The first-fruits of strength in the tents of ?am,
Psa 78:52  Then made His own people go forth like sheep, And led them in the wilderness like a flock.
Psa 78:53  And He led them on safely, And they did not fear, But the sea covered their enemies.
Psa 78:54  And He brought them to the border of His set-apart place, This mountain which His right hand had gained,
Psa 78:55  And drove out nations before them, And allotted them a measured inheritance, And made the tribes of Yisra’?l dwell in their tents.

Today is the sixth day of the fifth week of seven weeks. Today is the thirty-fourth day of the counting of fifty days from the day of the waving of the Omer on the morrow after the Sabbath.

Psa 67:1  Elohim does favour us and bless us, Cause His face to shine upon us. Selah.
Psa 67:2  For Your way to be known on earth, Your deliverance among all nations.
Psa 67:3  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim, Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:4  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You judge the peoples uprightly, And lead the nations on earth. Selah.
Psa 67:5  Let the peoples praise You, O Elohim; Let all the peoples praise You.
Psa 67:6  The earth shall give her increase; Elohim, our own Elohim, blesses us!
Psa 67:7  Elohim blesses us! And all the ends of the earth fear Him!

Day Thirty-Four | Yehovah & His People (Part V) Psalm 78:56-72

Psa 78:56  Yet they tried and rebelled Against the Most High Elohim, And did not guard His witnesses,
Psa 78:57  But they turned back And acted treacherously like their fathers; They twisted like a treacherous bow.
Psa 78:58  For they enraged Him with their high places, And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.
Psa 78:59  When Elohim heard this, He was wroth, And greatly despised Yisra’el,
Psa 78:60  And He left the Dwelling Place of Shiloh, The Tent which He had set up among men.
Psa 78:61  And He gave His strength into captivity, And His comeliness into the hand of the adversary.
Psa 78:62  And He gave His people over to the sword, And He was wroth with His inheritance.
Psa 78:63  His young men were consumed by fire, And His maidens were not praised.
Psa 78:64  His priests fell by the sword, And their widows could not weep.
Psa 78:65  Then Yehovah awoke as one asleep, As a mighty man who shouts because of wine.
Psa 78:66  And He struck His adversaries backward, He put them to an everlasting reproach.
Psa 78:67  Then He rejected the tent of Yoseph, And did not choose the tribe of Ephrayim,
Psa 78:68  But chose the tribe of Yehudah, Mount Tsiyon, which He loved.
Psa 78:69  And He built His set-apart place like the heights, Like the earth He founded it forever.
Psa 78:70  And He chose Dawi? His servant, And took him from the sheepfolds;
Psa 78:71  He brought him in from tending the ewes, To shepherd Yacaqob His people, And Yisra’?l His inheritance.
Psa 78:72  And he shepherded them According to the integrity of his heart, And led them by the skill of his hands.

 


Emails

Wow Joe ,,,,, the “Haters and extreme liberals “ are out in full force. Anyone who even mentions God, the Bible, commandments or conservatives views gets hammered. Thank you for being the tool God used to my understanding. I can’t imagine how much you have been attacked for your message. Yehovah bless and keep you sir.
Michael Estes

Thanks for saying all this about the conspiracy stuff. It needed to be said and it is a major distraction for the body. Thanks!
Andrew

Blessings to Joseph,

Hello and Shalom to you. I am a rather new and intermittent subscriber. I must say I was rather shocked at your attack on the brethren as you call them who were sharing so called “conspiracy” information with you. It seems you had no value for anything that is not the status quo. While I would certainly agree that spending all one’s time searching out rabbit trails of information is not how a believer should operate, these things cannot just be disregarded anymore than your complete validation of everything you deem to be the truth is acceptable. Understanding man’s evil intentions does in no way diminish the Creator’s All Powerful Hand in everything that happens. Clearly you have the insight to see how it was Yahuah who sent enemies to punish Israel for their disobedience throughout the Tanakh, why should it be any different now? Yahuah uses man as He desires. Many of the so called conspiracies are true. You complained that this leads to no man being trusted. Of course in the end of days, who can be trusted?
If you had done research into the Covid19 you would understand this is an epidemic of fear only. There is no different virus, just a new flu variation, no accurate testing, complete misrepresentation of “confirmed” positives, off the chart hysteria by media etc. etc. As a believer how can you support this? Many are fearful and will look to save their carnal lives above their spiritual lives! Conforming to the laws of the Beast System. This is a “live exercise” as stated by Pompeo. It will serve to conform the minds of people to their new reality as continuing slaves to the Beast.

And you compared Trump to Hezekiah as ” far as Democrats are concerned”. What? You should only point point out there is no connection of any government leader with anything resembling a motive for doing good. You do not need to call out your fellow believers for making many connections that are obvious and real. Truth does matter. What you need to do is acknowledge that these things may well be true and we should trust no man only Yahuah. Yahusha’s first warning was to not be deceived in these days and most will!! A true believer will fall prey to none of the world’s devices, none of the lies of the Beast System. Always point others back to the Word. All your quotations do not prove that the conspiracies are not true, I could argue they prove they are. What is first on the list of those who do not enter the kingdom? Those who are cowards!! We must face up to and know the enemy or we are doomed. This is a spiritual battle. We are not fighting a pandemic, we fight against those in high places who worship Satan and have power in this world.

Again,
With Shalom,
Cathy Fratoni

 

Thank You for your newsletter. The quotations from Nehemiah were very appropriate and sobering. I was able to catch the last hour of last weeks Sabbath zoom meeting.
I do not think I will be able to watch live this week.

I am amazed that people are writing to you with the claim the flu is worse. than this corona virus. What are they, Ostriches? Reminds me of the ancient prayer cited by Ernest Martin in some of his books.
/       “From the cowardice that shrinks from new truth,//
//         From the laziness that is content with half-truths,/
/         From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth,/
/         O God of truth, deliver us.”/
Its the laziness factor here, a trust or belief in their leaders that shuts their brains down.  In Australia we call it the cop-out. We then have someone to blame.

Yes the flu is still with us and many die each year. About 1200 per year in Australia. Why cannot your correspondents accept that it is a different disease with much more rapid deployment and more severe reactions. Widespread in the armed forces, it would put USA/UK/Canada/Australia and New Zealand at full risk The trumpet blows but the armed forces may be unable to respond physically and/or effectively.

Amongst other things,  it is disgusting to see the churches still holding face to face meetings. Recent videos I saw of interviews of people attending was gob-smacking. “I am covered by the blood of Jesus” . One man said his church had no cases, not one, and he would be the first to know because he was the minister.

I am an Australian, and the political infighting in USA does not have immediate impact. We are at shock absorber distance, so to speak. I watch both Fox news and CNN, which are a limited sample to me of what is presented what is said in the dailies. Generally I tend to be a little on the republican side, but also see some of the democrat side. Civility started to decay seriously in 2016, and now is gone completely. In this case I think the doctrines/politics of the conservatives, the evangelists, are really putting many at risk, into denial.

Regardless of what people believe, your latest newsletter shows that we (all of Israel), have now absolutely no say in what is to occur unless we repent collectively. Definitely not possible with the political climate in the western world. Too much blame-game. The warnings and clear messages from God are obscured and hidden by the whisperer.

I repeat, the scriptures you quoted in your newsletter are appropriate and sobering. Also very scary and direct, with no way to evade results of my own culpability and responsibility.  Except if God accepts my repentance and forgives me.

Cheers,
Pat

Hi again,
My sabbath over, and I was watching news.
A clip (a month or so old) was shown of Rush Limbaugh stating the corona virus was just the flu.
This might be one of the sources of those who wrote to you. Unbelievable ignorance to believe a biassed political opinion when, at that time, people were dying an China and Korea.  Particularly from a Trump apologist. And since that time, the huge impact in Italy, Spain and Iran plus others should have shocked your correspondents out of their “this is a
like the flu complacency”.

Pat

 

The other day Joe and I were talking about our loathing of conspiracy theories. I told him that before I met him I used to investigate things like the Illuminati, flat earth and chem-trails. At the same time I was trying to prove the Bible and figure out what happened to the lost tribes of Israel. Eventually, I was introduced to the Sighted Moon videos and I signed up for the weekly newsletter, having my first message/conversation with Joe in August 2014. I never spoke to Joe about conspiracy stuff, so he never had the opportunity to admonish me personally but I read what he said to others over the coarse of the next few years. His advice at the time was; ‘Take a year off from the conspiracy stuff. Study only the Bible. Keep the Shabbats and Feasts. Then see what you think of conspiracies after the 12 months.’ (I paraphrase)

So I did exactly that. I stopped looking for it. I stopped investigating and watching videos. I went cold turkey.
I’m not sure when the 12 months finished… I lost all interest in conspiracies… the Bible began to make more sense, pieces of the ‘Bible puzzle’ began to fall into place, deeper understanding increased… and a new type of wisdom came to me that I’ve not experienced before… and I can’t really explain… except to say that; it feels like my ‘being/ruach/soul’ grew up a little (or by some measure).

I can’t help but think about the parable of the seeds sown amongst the weeds and stones. Don’t let them choke you out of Yehovah’s nourishing soil. Dig deep and find the goodness He’s buried for you to find; like a beautiful pearl or hidden treasure.

From this experience I’ve learnt it’s much better to eat from the Tree of Life than from the Tree of Knowledge.

Witchcraft Among the Brethren

From my emails and various readings that a number of you have sent me concerning my warning to you about your conspiracy spreading, I see that a number of you have doubled down. You have not taken what I said with any degree of authority nor as a call for you to repent of your ways. And you flaunt your rebellion by sharing even more conspiracy teachings about how Bill Gates created this virus in order to vaccine us all and depopulate the world.

I did receive some who said they had repented after reading my article on the mixing of seeds.

If this was not a problem I would let it go. But you are now the problem and your stupid actions discredit Yehovah and His curses that He has been sending now for this entire Jubilee Cycle. You continue to take what Yehovah does and along with Satan you claim it is created by Bill Gates or George Soros or some other silly imagination that someone on youtube put out.

You try to justify your continual witchcraft and rebellion by mixing it with a few biblical quotes and telling those who don’t believe you to go and read sightedmoon.com as though I was condoning your Lasha Hara sins and gossip.

You need to read about the Rebellion of Korah once again. No I most certainly am not praying for the earth to open up and swallow you. Not at all. But I am trying to get you to see your sins, before Yehovah takes action. We are currently in a Pandemic and this disease that no one can see is killing thousands. This same disease that some of you are even saying is false and not real. then later you said it was real and that Bill Gates was behind it.

At the end of this reading take note of how many died of the plague after they saw what happened to Korah for his rebellion.

Korah’s Rebellion
Num 16:1  Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, took both Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben;

Num 16:2  even they rose up before Moses with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty rulers of the assembly, elect men in the congregation, men who were well-known.

Num 16:3  And they gathered themselves against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, You take too much upon you, since all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and Jehovah is among them. Why then do you lift yourselves up above the congregation of Jehovah?

Num 16:4  And Moses heard and fell on his face.

Num 16:5  And he spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, Even tomorrow Jehovah will show who are His, and him who is holy, and will cause him to come near to Him; even him whom He has chosen, He will cause to come near to Him.

Num 16:6  Do this. Take fire-pans, Korah and all his company,

Num 16:7  and put fire in them, and put incense in them before Jehovah tomorrow. And it shall be the man whom Jehovah chooses, he shall be holy. You take too much upon you, sons of Levi!

Num 16:8  And Moses said to Korah, Hear now you sons of Levi;

Num 16:9  is it only a small thing to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near Himself to do the service of the tabernacle of Jehovah and to stand before the congregation to minister to them?

Num 16:10  And He has brought you near, and all your brothers the sons of Levi with you. And do you seek the priesthood also?

Num 16:11  For this cause you and all your company aregathered against Jehovah. And what is Aaron, that you murmur against him?

Num 16:12  And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab. And they said, We will not come up.

Num 16:13  Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land that flows with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but must you also seize dominion over us?

Num 16:14  Besides, you have not brought us into a land that flows with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance in fields and vineyards. Will you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up.

Num 16:15  And Moses was very angry, and said to Jehovah, Do not respect their offering. I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.

Num 16:16  And Moses said to Korah, Stand before Jehovah, you and all your company, you and they, and Aaron, tomorrow.

Num 16:17  And every man take his fire-pan and put incense in them, and let every man bring his fire-pan before Jehovah, two hundred and fifty fire-pans, you also, and Aaron, each with his fire-pan.

Num 16:18  And every man took his fire-pan and put fire in them, and laid incense on it, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.

Num 16:19  And Korah gathered all the congregation against them, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And the glory of Jehovah appeared to all the congregation.

Num 16:20  And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,

Num 16:21  Separate yourselves from among this congregation, so that I may devour them in a moment.

Num 16:22  And they fell upon their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin and will You be angry with all the congregation?

Num 16:23  And Jehovah spoke to Moses saying,

Num 16:24  Speak to the congregation saying, Get away from the tent of Korah and Dathan and Abiram.

Num 16:25  And Moses rose up and went to Dathan and Abiram. And the elders of Israel followed him.

Num 16:26  And he spoke to the congregation, saying, I pray you, get away from the tents of these wicked men. And touch nothing of theirs lest you be destroyed in all their sins.

Num 16:27  So they got away from the tent of Korah, Dathan and Abiram, on every side. And Dathan and Abiram came out and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their infants.

Num 16:28  And Moses said, By this you shall know that Jehovah has sent me to do all these works, and that not from my own heart.

Num 16:29  If these men die the common death of all men, or if they are visited according to the examination of all men, Jehovah has not sent me.

Num 16:30  But if Jehovah makes a new thing, and the earth opens her mouth and swallows them up with all that they have, and they go down alive into the pit, then you shall understand that these men have provoked Jehovah.

Num 16:31  And it happened, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, the ground under them split apart.

Num 16:32  And the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who werefor Korah, and all their goods.

Num 16:33  They and all that they had went down alive into Sheol, and the earth closed upon them. And they perished from among the congregation.

Num 16:34  And all Israel around them fled at their cry. For they said, Lest the earth swallow us up.

Num 16:35  And there came out a fire from Jehovah and burned up the two hundred and fifty men who offered incense.

Num 16:36  And Jehovah spoke to Moses saying,

Num 16:37  Speak to Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the fire-pans out of the burning, and scatter the fire yonder. For they are holy.

Num 16:38  The fire-pans of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them into broad plates, a covering for the altar; for they offered them before Jehovah, therefore they are made holy. And they shall be a sign to the sons of Israel.

Num 16:39  And Eleazar the priest took the bronze fire-pans, the ones with which those who had been burned up had offered, and they were made into broad plates, a covering of the altar,

Num 16:40  a memorial to the sons of Israel, that no stranger not of the seed of Aaron may come near to offer incense before Jehovah, so that he may not be as Korah and as his company, as Jehovah said to him by the hand of Moses.

Num 16:41  But on the next day all the congregation of the sons of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron saying, You have killed the people of Jehovah.

Num 16:42  And it happened when the congregation was gathered together against Moses and against Aaron, they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation. And behold! The cloud covered it, and the glory of Jehovah appeared.

Num 16:43  And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 16:44  And Jehovah spoke to Moses saying,

Num 16:45  Get away from this congregation so that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces.

Num 16:46  And Moses said to Aaron, Take a fire-pan, and put fire in it from the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly to the congregation and make an atonement for them. For wrath has gone out from Jehovah. The plague has begun.

Num 16:47  And Aaron did as Moses commanded and ran into the midst of the congregation. And behold! The plague had begun among the people. And he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people.

Num 16:48  And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stayed.

Num 16:49  And those who died in the plague were fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides the ones who died about the matter of Korah.

Num 16:50  And Aaron returned to Moses to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the plague was stayed.

Last week I said you were idol worshipping and working with Satan by continuing to share and promote those false teachings. This week I am calling you rebels and slanderers. We are all here to become Kings and Priests in His Kingdom. But unless you repent of this crap you will forfeit your Kingdom.

1Sa 15:22  And Samuel said, Does Jehovah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of Jehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice! To listen is better than the fat of rams!

1Sa 15:23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idol-worship. Because you have rejected the Word of Jehovah, He has also rejected you from being king!

Your outbursts and murmurings over this subject are heard by Yehovah. You rediculing of me is also heard on high. Read what is written in Malachi

Mal 3:16  Then those fearing Jehovah spoke together, eachman to his neighbor. And Jehovah listened and heard. And a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared Jehovah, and for those esteeming His name.

Mal 3:17  And they shall be Mine, says Jehovah of Hosts, for the day that I will make up My treasure. And I will pity them as a man has pity on his son who serves him.

Mal 3:18  Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God, and him who does not serve Him.

It does not say those who feared Yehovah taught conspiracies to their neighbours. Nor does it say they esteemed Prince Philip, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, George Soros or any other person you constantly talk about. It says those who taught others about Yehovah and esteemed HIs name, that these will be written in that book.

You know as well as I do the sword is at the very door. Do you think your rebellion and stubbornness, your witchcraft and worshiping of this idol of secret knowledge from the tree of good and evil is going to escape Yehovah’s judgment that is coming and now here on this whole earth?

Who cares if the vaccines are made from the unborn dead? Who cares if Bill Gates wants you to get vaccinated and to do that he created this virus? Who give a crap about any of these made up conspiracy things you are so passionate to promote day in and day out? Who cares if there are chem trails or if 9/11 was an inside job? Who gives a rat’s arse about any of this crap other than you and the next person you infect with it?

If you want your name to be recorded as one teaching about Yehovah and esteeming His name then TEACH ABOUT YEHOVAH AND HIS LAWS!

REPENT NOW!

Repent now while you still have time to demonstrate to Yehovah you have changed and mean it. That sword is coming fast and furious. I am pleading with you to stop now. I am begging you to stop working for Satan and his demons.

I am begging you for your own sakes. Stop.

Exodus 22:18 You shall not suffer a witch to live.

Leviticus 20:6,27 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people…

If you will not stop then please leave. Please go and follow those teaching about the flat earth. Those messianic so called teachers who teach about conspiracies and mix it in with the Torah. Follow them. Go and support them. Not one of them will teach you about the Sabbatical years. No, none of them will tell you how to know when the Jubilee years are and exactly how close we are to the end. But if you think vaccines and 9/11 conspiracies and NWO are just as important or more so than Torah, then please join these other fellowships and be happy there.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dt_fancy_title title=”PizzaGate” title_size=”h3″ title_color=”accent” separator_style=”double” separator_color=”accent”][vc_column_text]How many of you took part in this gossip and spread it around?

“Pizzagate” is a debunked conspiracy theory that went viral during the 2016 United States presidential election cycle.[2][3][4] It has been extensively discredited by a wide range of organizations, including the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia.[3][4][5]

In March 2016, the personal email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, was hacked in a spear-phishing attack. WikiLeaks published his emails in November 2016. Proponents of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory falsely claimed the emails contained coded messages that connected several U.S. restaurants and high-ranking officials of the Democratic Party with an alleged human trafficking and child sex ring. One of the establishments allegedly involved was the Comet Ping Pong restaurant and pizzeria in Washington, D.C.[6][7]

Members of the alt-right, and other opponents of Clinton’s presidential campaign, spread the conspiracy theory on social media outlets such as 4chan, 8chan, and Twitter.[8] In response, a man from North Carolina traveled to Comet Ping Pong to investigate the conspiracy and fired a rifle inside the restaurant.[9] The restaurant owner and staff also received death threats from conspiracy theorists.[10]

 

On October 30, 2016, a Twitter account that posted white supremacist material and presented itself as run by a New York lawyer claimed that the New York City Police Department (NYPD) had discovered a pedophilia ring linked to members of the Democratic Party while searching through Anthony Weiner’s emails.[12][3] Throughout October and November 2016, WikiLeaks had published John Podesta’s emails. Proponents of the theory read the emails and alleged they contained code words for pedophilia and human trafficking.[2][13] Proponents also claimed that Comet Ping Pong was a meeting ground for Satanic ritual abuse.[14]

The story was later posted on fake news websites, beginning with Your News Wire, which cited a 4chan post from earlier that year.[12] The Your News Wire article was subsequently spread by pro-Trump websites, including SubjectPolitics.com, which added the claim that the NYPD had raided Hillary Clinton’s property.[12] The Conservative Daily Post ran a headline claiming the Federal Bureau of Investigation had confirmed the theory.[15]

Spread on social media

According to the BBC, the allegations spread to “the mainstream internet” several days before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, after a Reddit user posted a Pizzagate “evidence” document.[8] The original Reddit post, removed some time between November 4 and 21, alleged the involvement of the Washington, D.C., business Comet Ping Pong:

Everyone associated with the business is making semi-overt, semi-tongue-in-cheek, and semi-sarcastic inferences towards sex with minors. The artists that work for and with the business also generate nothing but cultish imagery of disembodiment, blood, beheadings, sex, and of course pizza.[4]
The story was picked up by other fake-news websites like InfoWars, Planet Free Will,[10] and The Vigilant Citizen,[16][17] and was promoted by alt-right activists such as Mike Cernovich, Brittany Pettibone, and Jack Posobiec.[8][18] Other promoters included: David Seaman, former writer for TheStreet.com,[19] CBS46 anchor Ben Swann,[20] basketball player Andrew Bogut,[21] and Minecraft creator Markus Persson.[22] On December 30, as Bogut recovered from a knee injury, members of /r/The Donald community on Reddit promoted a false theory that his injury was connected to his support for Pizzagate.[23][24] Jonathan Albright, an assistant professor of media analytics at Elon University, said that a disproportionate number of tweets about Pizzagate came from the Czech Republic, Cyprus, and Vietnam, and that some of the most frequent retweeters were bots.[18]

Members of the Reddit community /r/The_Donald created the /r/pizzagate subreddit to further develop the conspiracy theory.[10] The sub was banned on November 23, 2016, for violating Reddit’s anti-doxing policy after users posted personal details of people connected to the alleged conspiracy. Reddit released a statement afterwards, saying, “We don’t want witchhunts on our site”.[8][25] After the ban on Reddit, the discussion was moved to the v/pizzagate sub on Voat, a website similar to Reddit.[26]

Some of Pizzagate’s proponents, including David Seaman and Michael G. Flynn (Michael Flynn’s son), have evolved the conspiracy into a broader government conspiracy called “Pedogate”. According to this theory, a “satanic cabal of elites” of the New World Order operates international child sex trafficking rings.[27]

Turkish press reports

In Turkey, the allegations were reported by pro-government newspapers (i.e., those supportive of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an), such as Sabah, A Haber, Yeni ?afak, Ak?am and Star. The story appeared on Turkey’s Ek?i Sözlük website and on the viral news network HaberSelf, where anyone can post content. These forums reposted images and allegations directly from the since-deleted subreddit, which were reprinted in full in the state-controlled press.[8][28] Efe Sozeri, a columnist for The Daily Dot, suggested Turkish government sources were pushing this story to distract attraction from a child abuse scandal there in March 2016.[28]

Harassment of restaurant owners and employees

The pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong, was threatened by hundreds of people who believed in the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.[29]
As Pizzagate spread, Comet Ping Pong received hundreds of threats from the theory’s believers.[29] The restaurant’s owner, James Alefantis, told The New York Times: “From this insane, fabricated conspiracy theory, we’ve come under constant assault. I’ve done nothing for days but try to clean this up and protect my staff and friends from being terrorized.”[10]

Some adherents identified the Instagram account of Alefantis and pointed to some of the photos posted there as evidence of the conspiracy. Many of the images shown were friends and family who had liked Comet Ping Pong’s page on Facebook. In some cases, imagery was taken from unrelated websites and purported to be Alefantis’ own.[4] The restaurant’s owners and staff were harassed and threatened on social media websites, and the owner received death threats.[10] The restaurant’s Yelp page was locked by the site’s operators citing reviews that were “motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer’s personal consumer experience”.[4]

Several bands who had performed at the pizzeria also faced harassment. For example, Amanda Kleinman of Heavy Breathing deleted her Twitter account after receiving negative comments connecting her and her band to the conspiracy theory.[10] Another band, Sex Stains, had closed the comments of their YouTube videos and addressed the controversy in the description of their videos.[30] The artist Arrington de Dionyso, whose murals are frequently displayed at the pizzeria, described the campaign of harassment against him in detail,[31] and said of the attacks in general, “I think it’s a very deliberate assault, which will eventually be a coordinated assault on all forms of free expression.” The affair has drawn comparisons with the Gamergate controversy.[32][33]

Politics and Prose was among some of the D.C. businesses that were also harassed due to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.[34]
Pizzagate-related harassment of businesses extended beyond Comet Ping Pong to include other nearby D.C. businesses such as Besta Pizza, three doors down from Comet; Little Red Fox cafe; bookstore Politics and Prose; and French bistro Terasol.[34][35] These businesses received a high volume of threatening and menacing telephone calls, including death threats, and also experienced online harassment.[35] The co-owners of Little Red Fox and Terasol filed police reports.[35]

Brooklyn restaurant Roberta’s was also pulled into the hoax, receiving harassing phone calls, including a call from an unidentified person telling an employee that she was “going to bleed and be tortured”.[26][36] The restaurant became involved after a since-removed YouTube video used images from their social media accounts to imply they were part of the hoax sex ring. Others then spread the accusations on social media, claiming the “Clinton family loves Roberta’s”.[37]

East Side Pies, in Austin, Texas, saw one of its delivery trucks vandalized with an epithet, and was the target of online harassment related to their supposed involvement in Pizzagate, alleged connections to the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Illuminati.[38][39]

The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated Pizzagate-related threats in March 2017 as part of a probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.[40]

Criminal responses

Criminal allegations filed against Edgar Welch (full text)
On December 4, 2016, Edgar Maddison Welch, a 28-year-old man from Salisbury, North Carolina, arrived at Comet Ping Pong and fired three shots from an AR-15-style rifle that struck the restaurant’s walls, a desk, and a door.[41][42][43] Welch later told police that he had planned to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory.[44] Welch saw himself as the potential hero of the story—a rescuer of children.[45] He surrendered after officers surrounded the restaurant and was arrested without incident.[46] No one was injured.[47]

Welch told police he had read online the Comet restaurant was harboring child sex slaves and that he wanted to see for himself if they were there.[9] In an interview with The New York Times, Welch later said that he regretted how he had handled the situation but did not dismiss the conspiracy theory, and rejected the description of it as “fake news”.[48][49][50] Some conspiracy theorists speculated the shooting was a staged attempt to discredit their investigations.[51]

On December 13, 2016, Welch was charged with one count of “interstate transportation of a firearm with intent to commit an offense” (a federal crime).[52] According to court documents, Welch attempted to recruit friends three days before the attack by urging them to watch a YouTube video about the conspiracy.[53] He was subsequently charged with two additional offenses, with the grand jury returning an indictment charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.[54][55]

On March 24, 2017, following a plea agreement with prosecutors, Welch pleaded guilty to the federal charge of interstate transport of firearms and the local District of Columbia charge of assault with a dangerous weapon. Welch also agreed to pay $5,744.33 for damages to the restaurant. U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson sentenced Welch to four years in prison on June 22, 2017; at the sentencing hearing, Welch apologized for his conduct and said he had been “foolish and reckless”.[43][56][57]

On January 12, 2017, Yusif Lee Jones, a 52-year-old man from Shreveport, Louisiana, pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana to making a threatening phone call to Besta Pizza, another pizzeria on the same block as Comet Ping Pong, three days after Welch’s attack. He said he threatened Besta to “save the kids”, and “finish what the other guy didn’t”.[58][59]

On January 25, 2019, Comet Ping Pong suffered an arson attack when a fire was started in one of its backrooms. Employees quickly snuffed the blaze and nobody was injured.[60]

Debunking

The conspiracy theory has been widely discredited and debunked. It has been judged to be false after detailed investigation by the fact-checking website Snopes.com and The New York Times.[47][61][62] Numerous news organizations have debunked it as a conspiracy theory, including: the New York Observer,[63] The Washington Post,[64] The Independent in London,[65] The Huffington Post,[66] The Washington Times,[67] the Los Angeles Times,[68] Fox News,[69] CNN,[70] and the Miami Herald.[5] The Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia characterized the matter as “fictitious”.[5]

Much of the purported evidence cited by the conspiracy theory’s proponents had been taken from entirely different sources and made to appear as if it supported the conspiracy.[4] Images of children of family and friends of the pizzeria’s staff were taken from social media sites such as Instagram and claimed to be photos of victims.[61] The Charlotte Observer noted the diverse group of sources that had debunked the conspiracy theory and pointed out that this included the Fox News Channel in addition to The New York Times.[41]

On December 10, 2016, The New York Times published an article that analyzed the theory’s claims.[2] They emphasized that:

Theorists linked the conspiracy to Comet Ping Pong through similarities between company logos and symbols related to Satanism and pedophilia. However, The Times noted similarities were also found in the logos of a number of unrelated companies, such as AOL, Time Warner, and MSN.[2]
Theorists claimed an underground network beneath Comet Ping Pong; the restaurant has no basement, however, and the picture used to support this claim was taken in another facility.[2]

Theorists claimed to have a picture of restaurant owner Alefantis wearing a T-shirt endorsing pedophilia. However, the image was of another person, and the shirt, which read “J’ ? L’Enfant,” was actually a reference to the L’Enfant Cafe-Bar in DC, whose owner was pictured in the image, and which itself is named after Pierre Charles L’Enfant, the designer of much of the layout of Washington, D.C.[2]

Theorists claimed John and Tony Podesta kidnapped Madeleine McCann using police sketches that were, in fact, two sketches of the same suspect taken from the descriptions of two eyewitnesses.[2]

No alleged victims have come forward and no physical evidence has been found.[71]

Responses

Community messages in front of Comet Ping Pong following the shooting
In an interview with NPR on November 27, 2016, Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis referred to the conspiracy theory as “an insanely complicated, made-up, fictional lie-based story” and a “coordinated political attack”.[72] Syndicated columnist Daniel Ruth wrote that the conspiracy theorists’ assertions were “dangerous and damaging false allegations” and that they were “repeatedly debunked, disproved and dismissed”.[73]

Despite the conspiracy theory being debunked, it continued to spread on social media, with over one million messages using hashtag #Pizzagate on Twitter in November 2016.[41] Stefanie MacWilliams, who wrote an article promoting the conspiracy on Planet Free Will, was subsequently reported by the Toronto Star as saying, “I really have no regrets and it’s honestly really grown our audience.” Pizzagate, she said, is “two worlds clashing. People don’t trust the mainstream media anymore, but it’s true that people shouldn’t take the alternative media as truth, either.”[74]

On December 8, Hillary Clinton responded to the conspiracy theory, speaking about the dangers of fake news websites. She said, “The epidemic of malicious fake news and fake propaganda that flooded social media over the past year, it’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.”[75]

Public opinion

A poll conducted by Public Policy Polling on December 6–7, 2016, asked 1,224 U.S. registered voters if they thought Hillary Clinton was “connected to a child sex ring being run out of a pizzeria in Washington DC”. Nine percent of respondents said they believed she was connected, 72% said they did not, and 19% were not sure.[76][77][78]

A poll of voters conducted on December 17–20 by The Economist/YouGov asked voters if they believed that “Leaked e-mails from the Clinton campaign talked about pedophilia and human trafficking – ‘Pizzagate’.” The results showed that 17% of Clinton voters responded “true” while 82% responded “not true”; and 46% of Trump voters responded “true” while 53% responded “not true”.[79][80][81]

Alex Jones and InfoWars

After the Comet Ping Pong shooting, Alex Jones backed off from the idea that the D.C. pizzeria was the center of the conspiracy.[51] On December 4, InfoWars uploaded a YouTube video that linked Pizzagate to the November 13 death of a sex-worker-rights activist. The video falsely claimed that she had been investigating a link between the Clinton Foundation and human trafficking in Haiti. It speculated she had been murdered in connection with her investigation. According to the activist’s former employer, family and friends, her death was in fact a suicide and she was not investigating the Clinton Foundation.[82] By December 14, Infowars had removed two of its three Pizzagate-related videos.[83]

In February 2017, Alefantis’ lawyers sent Jones a letter demanding an apology and retraction. Under Texas law, Jones was given a month to comply or be subject to a libel suit.[84] In March 2017, Alex Jones apologized to Alefantis for promulgating the conspiracy theory, saying: “To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.”[85]

Michael T. Flynn and Michael Flynn Jr.

In November 2016, Michael T. Flynn, then on President-Elect Donald Trump’s transition team and Trump’s designate for National Security Advisor, posted multiple tweets on Twitter containing conspiratorial material regarding Hillary Clinton. They alleged that Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, drank the blood and bodily fluids of other humans in Satanic rituals, which Politico says “soon morphed into the ‘#pizzagate’ conspiracy theory involving Comet Ping Pong”.[86] On November 2, 2016, Flynn tweeted a link to a story with unfounded accusations and wrote, “U decide – NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes w Children, etc … MUST READ!” The tweet was shared by over 9,000 people, but was deleted from Flynn’s account sometime during December 12–13, 2016.[83]

After the shooting incident at Comet Ping Pong, Michael Flynn Jr., Michael T. Flynn’s son and also a member of Trump’s transition team, tweeted; “Until #Pizzagate proven to be false, it’ll remain a story. The left seems to forget #PodestaEmails and the many ‘coincidences’ tied to it.”[87][88][89] On December 6, 2016, Flynn Jr. was forced out of Trump’s transition team.[90] Spokesman Jason Miller did not identify the reason for his dismissal, however, The New York Times reported that other officials had confirmed it was related to the tweet.[91]


 

History of Pandemics and Conspiracies

Why Pandemics are the Perfect Environment for Conspiracy Theories to Flourish

A bioengineered virus, a genetic mutation induced by 5G technology, a big pharma conspiracy, a plot single-handedly masterminded by Bill Gates or Georges Soros. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, conspiracy theories have spread like the virus itself.

The whiff of conspiracy that inevitably seems to trail pandemics is nothing new. When the 1918 flu pandemic hit the Americas, it was blamed on German submarines spreading the virus. During the 1630 plague in Milan, the combination of folk superstitions and widespread anxiety led to the trial, torture, and execution of two citizens falsely accused of spreading the pestilence – a case minutely examined by the Italian novelist Alessandro Manzoni.

In his work on witchcraft, Carlo Ginzburg tells of persecutions against lepers and Jews in 14th century France. According to some chronicles, rumour had it that the Jews, acting on behalf of the Muslim prince of Grenada, had bribed the lepers so they would contaminate public fountains and wells in order to kill the Christians. Clearly, contemporary tales of viral bioweapons build upon a very old theme.

Like conspiracy theories, pandemics are about an invisible and powerful enemy hiding among us. Like pandemics, conspiracy theories are contagious or, as we say today, “viral.” But beyond these superficial similarities, they are connected by deeper affinities.

Apocalypse now

Pandemics are surrounded by a sense of impending apocalypse. Throughout history, they have been understood as final tribulations, a sign of the end time. In 1523, during a plague outbreak, while the richest inhabitants of Florence had scrambled for their countryside villas, those who had remained in the city were barricaded in their homes and trying to make sense of their predicament.

Florentine statesman Niccolò Machiavelli, who witnessed the episode first hand, observed:

Many are looking for the cause behind this affliction, some say the predictions of the astrologists threaten us, others that the prophets had predicted it; there are those who remember some prodigy…so that everyone concludes that not only the plague, but an infinite number of other calamities are to befall us.
Today, only religious fundamentalists interpret the coronavirus pandemic as an omen of the final judgment or end times. Yet, apocalyptic thinking does not necessarily have to be religious or to countenance the end of earthly existence.

Italian anthropologist Ernesto de Martino proposed the idea of “cultural apocalypses” to designate the sense that a specific historical world is ending. For de Martino and his contemporaries in the mid-20th century, this manifested itself in the sense of existential crisis permeating post-war culture and in the actual possibility of atomic annihilation, but he intended the notion to apply to a wide range of historical situations.

We are living through such a cultural apocalypse today, as it becomes increasingly clear that the world as we know it is fast becoming a thing of the past and that whatever lies ahead will be utterly different. We have become the quarantined spectators of an unfolding catastrophe that underscores the frailty of the world we took for granted and of our own presence in it.

When paranoia prevails

The impression that the world is dissolving and our impotence to stop this can make us feel a paralysing anxiety, incompatible with any productive form of social and cultural life. For de Martino, ancient mythologies, religions and even progressive secular cultures have contained this risk by emphasising a future around which a community could exist.

Without this, the apocalyptic experience becomes totally alienating. When all the certainties grounding our existence are shaken, it is easy to feel paranoid. Or, as de Martino put it, to sense hostile forces and feel victim of “conspiracies, machinations, curses.” Conspiracy theories and paranoid visions are the flipside of a cultural crisis in which the idea of a shared future has collapsed.

In an earlier work, de Martino observed that extreme situations of “suffering and deprivation” could trigger such existential crises. He mentioned wars, but he might as well have added pandemics. Self-isolation and quarantine epitomise the idea of being removed from the world and any sense of community. In these conditions, it is easy to succumb to paranoia, especially if it is stirred up by cynical and reactionary politicians.

Unlike religious ideas of apocalypse, the secular version of conspiracy theories offers no element of redemption. Conspiracy theories perpetuate the paranoid sense of disaffection and powerlessness – the idea that evil forces are at work, which one has little power to stop. They further isolate people and deprive them of feeling that they can shape their own world, let alone make it a better one.

The political culture of the past 50 years has failed to offer the vast majority of people a sense of their own worthiness and to protect them against the existential risk of losing their livelihoods – indeed, their world. The current pandemic pushes us into the terminal phase of this crisis. The only way out consists of turning apocalyptic ideas on their head and ensuring that the end we are witnessing will not be an endless agony but a new beginning.

Do Not Grieve the Holy Spirit

I first wrote this in 2016 during the Shemiath year. That year was also a year when many were bitterly fighting amongst our selves because of the split over the calendar. A similar split occurred this year. I want to share this again because it also ties in with what I have been saying about the conspiracy teachings above and how they grieve the Holy Spirit.

Yes I have had many of you write me this past week justifying your continued support for the false teachings you are spreading. I am hammering away at you because of the pushback I got and it showed me how entrenched this idol worship was in you. In many of you. I have not given up on each of you because I know you and love you. But at some point I have to let go and give up. If I have had to do that for my own personal family whom I love, I can do the same for you who also will not repent, who grieve the Spirit of Yehovah.

Have you ever considered this verse and what it means?

Let’s read the verse.

Eph 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed until the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and tumult and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.

How does one grieve the spirit?

When we look up the word it is;

G3076 lupeo?   loo-peh’-o

From G3077; to distress; reflexively or passively to be sad: – cause grief, grieve, be in heaviness, (be) sorrow (-ful), be (make) sorry.

G3077     lupe?     loo’-pay

Apparently a primary word; sadness: – grief, grievous, + grudgingly, heaviness, sorrow.

Paul is quoting;

Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and troubled His Holy Spirit; therefore He was turned to be their enemy, and He fought against them.

The word troubled in Isaiah 63 is the word grieve.

H6087   ?a?tsab     aw-tsab’

A primitive root; properly to carve, that is, fabricate or fashion; hence (in a bad sense) to worrypain or anger: – displease, grieve, hurt, make, be sorry, vex, worship, wrest.

Read carefully what Isaiah is telling us. Those who rebel or those who trouble Yehovah or grieve His spirit, Yehovah will become their enemy and Yehovah will fight against them. And He will fight against you, those of us who are going to grieve His spirit. Those who grieve Yehovah’s spirit are rebellious children.

Isaiah is speaking of the time that Israel came out of Egypt and how they grieved Yehovah who then caused them all to die over the next 40 years.

The way we have treated each other this past month over our understandings of the barley is grievous to the spirit of Yehovah. Think about it.

In the lead up to the destruction of the temple one of the first cities to be destroyed was Gamla. It was a zealous city and one of the cities of refuge. This was the city Yehshua was raised in. Why would Yehovah allow it to be destroyed in 66 C.E. by the Romans, with so many zealous people all seeking to obey Him?

Many of the zealots from Gamla fled to Jerusalem and there they ended up in three different groups of zealots all fighting each other. Each group sought to burn the others food supply in that sabbatical year of 70 C.E. and thus to starve the other group out. When they finally did burn the food supplies the people resorted to cannibalism and the eating of their own children just as Lev 26 warns us would happen. Josephus writes of it and as a first hand witness is mortified.

When Jerusalem fell in 70 C.E. some of these same zealots escaped to Masada. And here again when Rome defeated them in 73 C.E. they committed suicide as many did in Gamla.

Why? Why did Yehovah not rescue them? Why did Yehovah allow them all to die? Why did their zealousness not preserve them, their righteouness?

Why did Yehovah allow the zealots of Gamla and the zealots of Jerusalem and then again the zealots of Masada to all die?

They were keeping the Sabbath. They were keeping the Holy Days. They were doing the Barley searches and they were keeping the Feasts based on the sighting of the crescent moon. They were even keeping the Sabbatical years. This was all before the Hillel calendar 300 years later. So why did Yehovah not save them from Rome? Why did he not intervene and rescue them? Why was their righteousness not good enough? WHY WHY WHY? Does God even exist?

They knew the Messiah had come or was about to come, the same as we also know He is about to come again at the end of this age.

We read in Genesis;

Gen 6:3  And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, in his erring; he is flesh. Yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.

This word strive is;

H1777   d??yn  du?n  deen,doon

A primitive root (compare H113); to rule; by implication to judge (as umpire); also to strive (as at law): – contend, execute (judgment), judge, minister judgment, plead (the cause), at strife, strive.

Yehovah is grieved because He always has to minister judgment, or plead with us to obey. He has set the limits on how long He would put up with it and as we have shown you we are near the end of that time. He is not going to strive with us nor plead with us nor have to judge us and be grieved because we did not listen in the 7th millennium.

Gen 6:6  And Jehovah repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was angry to His heart.

The word repented is;

H5162     na?cham     naw-kham’

A primitive root; properly to sigh, that is, breathe strongly; by implication to be sorry, that is, (in a favorable sense) to pityconsole or (reflexively) rue; or (unfavorably) to avenge (oneself): – comfort (self), ease [one’s self], repent (-er, -ing, self).

And the word translated as angry is;

H6087   ?a?tsab     aw-tsab’

A primitive root; properly to carve, that is, fabricate or fashion; hence (in a bad sense) to worrypain or anger: – displease, grieve, hurt, make, be sorry, vex, worship, wrest.

The same word used by Isaiah 63. When you grieve the Holy Spirit you anger Yehovah; you make Him your enemy and He will fight against you. Think about all the things Yehovah is saying in the following psalm.

Psa 78:40  How often they provoked Him in the wilderness, and grieved Him in the desert! 41  Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and pained the Holy One of Israel. 42  They did not remember His hand, the day when He delivered them from the enemy; 43  how He had set His signs in Egypt, and His wonders in the fields of Zoan. 44  He turned their rivers into blood, and their floods, so that they could not drink. 45  He sent different kinds of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them. 46  He also gave their crops to the stripping locust, and their labor to the locust. 47  He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycamore trees with sleet. 48  He gave up their cattle to the hail, and their flocks to bolts of fire. 49  He sent on them the heat of His anger, wrath and fury and trouble, by sending evil angels. 50  He made a way to His anger; He did not save their soul from death, but gave their life over to the plague, 51  and struck all the first-born in Egypt, the first of the strong in the tents of Ham; 52  and led His people forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. 53  And He led them on safely, so that they did not fear; but the sea flooded over their enemies. 54  And He brought them within His own holy border, this mountain, which His right hand had bought. 55  He also cast out the nations before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. 56  Yet they tempted and provoked the Most High God, and kept not His testimonies; 57  but they turned back, and acted unfaithfully like their fathers; they were turned aside like a deceiving bow. 58  For they provoked Him to anger with their high places, and moved Him to jealousy with their carved images. 59  When God heard, He was angry, and turned away from Israel; 60  so that He left the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which He placed among men, 61  and delivered His strength into captivity, and His glory into the enemy’s hands. 62  He also gave His people over to the sword, and was angry with His inheritance. 63  The fire burned up their young men; and their maidens were not given in marriage. 64  Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows were not able to weep. 65  Then the Lord awakened like one out of sleep, like a mighty man rejoicing with wine.

You who are of the house of Joseph and who write and promote anti-semitic remarks about Judah and the Karaites, consider what is said next in this psalm.

Psa 78:66  And He drove His enemies backward; He put them to a never-ending shame. 67  And He refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim; 68  but chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which He loved. 69  And He built His holy place like high palaces, like the earth which He has founded forever. 70  He also chose David His servant, and took him from the sheepfolds; 71  from following the ewes great with young He brought him to feed Jacob His people, and Israel His inheritance. 72  And he fed them according to the pureness of his heart, and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

Do not say I am talking about those in the wilderness – no, I am writing this to you who are alive today and think you are more than what you are. I am writing this to myself, also.

Psa 95:7  For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today if you will hear His voice, 8  harden not your heart, as in the day of strife, as in the day of testing in the wilderness; 9  when your fathers tempted Me, tested Me, and saw My work. 10  For forty years I was grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people who go astray in their hearts, and they have not known My ways; 11  to whom I swore in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest.

Over and over Yehovah is telling us ‘it is our heart’ that is the problem. We have a heart condition and we need to fix it now or we end up fighting against Yehovah and if we do, then we will die and we will not BE IN THE 7TH MILLENNIUM. You just read about these people who will not enter into His rest.

Psa 95:11  to whom I swore in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest.

That rest

H4496     menu?cha?h  menu?cha?h

men-oo-khaw’,men-oo-khaw’

Feminine of H4495repose or (adverbially) peacefully; figuratively consolation (specifically matrimony); hence (concretely) an abode: – comfortable, ease, quiet, rest (-ing place), still.

H4494    ma?no?ach    maw-no’-akh

From H5117quiet, that is, (concretely) a settled spot, or (figuratively) a home: – (place of) rest.

H5117     nu?ach    noo’-akh

A primitive root; to rest, that is, settle down; used in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, intransitively, transitively and causatively (to dwellstayletfallplacelet alonewithdrawgive comfort, etc.): – cease, be confederate, lay, let down, (be) quiet, remain, (cause to, be at, give, have, make to) rest, set down. Compare H3241.

We must now look at some more scriptures on this point.

Num 14:22  Because all those men who have seen My glory and My miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not listened to My voice, 23  surely they shall not see the land which I swore to their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked Me see it. 24  But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land into which he went. And his seed shall possess it.

Num 14:28  Say to them, As I live, says Jehovah, as you have spoken in My ears, so I will do to you. 29  Your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness, and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against Me, 30  you shall certainly not come into the land which I swore to make you live in, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

Yehovah hears your words. He know your emails and the things you say to those who are suppose to be your brethren. The hurtful things you say to your brethren and no one repents and no one apologizes. No, no one says they are sorry for the things they said about you.

Deu 1:34  And Jehovah heard the voice of your words, and was angry and swore, saying, 35  Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I swore to give to your fathers, 36  except Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him I will give the land that he has trodden upon, and to his sons, because he has fully followed Jehovah.

Heb 4:1  Therefore, a promise being left to enter into His rest, let us fear lest any of you should seem to come short of it. 2  For also we have had the gospel preached, as well as them. But the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it3  For we who have believed do enter into the rest, as He said, “I have sworn in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest;” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4  For He spoke in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested the seventh day from all His works.” 5  And in this place again, “They shall not enter into My rest.” 6  Since then it remains that some must enter into it, and since they to whom it was first preached did not enter in because of unbelief, 7  He again marks out a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” (after so long a time). Even as it is said, “Today, if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” 8  For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. 9  So then there remains a rest to the people of God. 10  For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. 11  Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief. 12  For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hos 4:1  Hear the Word of Jehovah, sons of Israel. For Jehovah has a quarrel with the people of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. 2  There is lying, and swearing, and killing, and stealing, and the committing of adultery; and blood touches blood. 3  Therefore the land shall mourn, and everyone who dwells in it shall droop, with the beasts of the field and with the birds of the heavens. Yes, the fish of the sea shall also be taken away. 4  Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another. For your people are as those who strive with the priest. 5  And you shall stumble in the day, and the prophet also shall stumble with you in the night, and I will cut off your mother. 6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being priest to Me. Since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your sons, even I.

Our striving with each other, our lack of love we show with each other, are the same as striving with the Priest. We become Yehovah’s enemies even though we think we are being zealous for Him, and we will not enter into that millennial rest if we do not repent, and repent soon. We are constantly judging each other and everyone wants to condemn the others to hell with fire and brimstone and none, none wants to help them understand and grow.

Mat 5:21  You have heard that it was said to the ancients, “You shall not kill” –and, “Whoever shall kill shall be liable to the judgment.” 22  But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be liable to the judgment. And whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be liable to the sanhedrin; but whoever shall say, Fool! shall be liable to be thrown into the fire of hell. 23  Therefore if you offer your gift on the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, 24  leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25  Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; that the opponent not deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26  Truly I say to you, You shall by no means come out from there until you have paid the last kodrantes.

We, those of us Yehovah has called out in these last days, those of us who are understanding the Feasts and appointed times and have repented and begun to keep them, those of us who are studying His word and trying to apply them to our lives are suppose to be His ambassadors on this earth to the rest of the world. And what does the rest of the world see us doing? Fighting, backbiting, condemning people in the faith to hell, praying for them to die, speaking evil of them to others and not talking to them ever again. Exactly the same things those zealots did to each other leading up to the destruction of the temple.

What was wrong with them? Why were they like this? Why are you like this?

Mar 3:3  And He said to the man who had the withered hand, Arise! Come into the middle. 4  And He said to them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill? But they were silent. 5  And looking around on them with anger, being grieved because of the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, Stretch out your hand! And he stretched it out. And his hand was restored whole, like the other. 6  The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.

The exact same thing that was wrong with Pharaoh, his heart had become hard-hearted. Yehshua was grieved because of the hardness of their hearts. Again, they kept the Sabbath and the Holy Days and the Sabbatical years at the right time, so doing all of these things is not what would save them and it will not save you either. He is just as grieved with your hard-heartedness that you show to your brethren.

Stephen also addressed this issue with the people before they killed him.

Act 7:51  O stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so you do. 52  Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you have now been the betrayers and murderers; 53  who received the Law through disposition of angels, and did not keep it.

Yehovah is our redeemer, and He has has paid the redemption price for us. Who do you think you are, who do I think I am to condemn a brother or sister who does not understand as much as I do, or to condemn them because I do not understand as much as they do or because we failed to get all the facts before we opened our mouths or before we pressed send? Yehovah redeemed all of us for His purpose. Why do you fight with those He is redeeming?

What is it that causes us to grieve the spirit of Yehovah? Let’s read the verse again. Yes, each of you, each one of us is grieving the Holy Spirit. Just stop and ponder that for a while.

Eph 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed until the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and tumult and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.

Bitterness is the acrid poisonous words you use against anyone, all in an effort to prove your position right. Many times when someone does not have enough facts to support them, they degenerate to name calling and the conversation turns poisonous and acrid.

G4088     pikria     pik-ree’-ah

From G4089acridity (especially poison), literally or figuratively: – bitterness.

Wrath is to actually slay the other person much like a sacrifice. You slaughter it but in this case it is done with passion that is out of control. Once you look at the secondary meaning of this word you see it is of the heart, mind and soul, only the from the opposite point that you are to love Yehovah with all your heart, mind and soul. Here you are using the same passion to kill, slaughter and maie and not to love.

G2372     thumos     thoo-mos’

From G2380passion (as if breathing hard): – fierceness, indignation, wrath. Compare G5590.

G5590  psuche?     psoo-khay’

From G5594breath, that is, (by implication) spirit, abstractly or concretely (the animal sentient principle only; thus distinguished on the one hand from G4151, which is the rational and immortal soul; and on the other from G2222, which is mere vitality, even of plants: these terms thus exactly correspond respectively to the Hebrew [H5315], [H7307] and [H2416]: – heart (+ -ily), life, mind, soul, + us, + you.

Anger; this word is interesting. In the same way some entertain sexual orgies those in anger are also stimulated or excited by their anger and enjoy it.

G3709     orge?     or-gay’

From G3713; properly desire (as a reaching forth or excitement of the mind), that is, (by analogy) violent passion (ire, or [justifiable] abhorrence); by implication punishment: – anger, indignation, vengeance, wrath.

Tumult-Outcry how interesting. Making oneself heard when really they should be silent and listening.

G2906     krauge?     krow-gay’

From G2896; an outcry (in notification, tumult or grief): – clamour, cry (-ing).

Evil speaking- How many times have I written on this one subject alone.  Lashon Harah, the speaking evil of others. To Yehovah this is blasphemy. Railing on your brethren is Blasphemy. How many of you tell those that are doing this that they are Blaspheming the Holy Spirit? Maybe we all should be warning others of this.

G988    blasphe?mia      blas-fay-me’-ah

From G989vilification (especially against God): – blasphemy, evil speaking, railing.

Malice

G2549    kakia     kak-ee’-ah

From G2556badness, that is, (subjectively) depravity, or (actively) malignity, or (passively) trouble: – evil, malice (-iousness), naughtiness, wickedness.

Eph 4:20  But you have not so learned Christ, 21  if indeed you have heard Him and were taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus. 22  For you ought to put off the old man (according to your way of living before) who is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23  and be renewed in the spirit of your mind. 24  And you should put on the new man, who according to God was created in righteousness and true holiness. 25  Therefore putting away lying, let each man speak truth with his neighbour, for we are members of one another. 26  Be angry, and do not sin. Do not let the sun go down upon your wrath, 27  neither give place to the Devil.

Is this not what we have just done by putting the leaven out our homes? The reason we do that physically each year is to learn a spiritual lesson. To put out of our lives evil and not to bring it back into our lives.

Paul back in Ephesians tells us what to do instead of these evil things.

Eph 4:32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.

These words do not need to be explained. They are very plain.

Mat 18:21  Then Peter came to Him and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Until seven times? 22  Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, Until seven times; but, Until seventy times seven. 23  Therefore the kingdom of Heaven has been compared to a certain king who desired to make an accounting with his servants. 24  And when he had begun to count, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25  But as he had nothing to pay, his lord commanded that he, and his wife and children, and all that he had, be sold, and payment be made. 26  Then the servant fell down and worshiped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me and I will pay you all. 27  Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion and released him and forgave him the debt. 28  But the same servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. And he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me what you owe. 29  And his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, Have patience with me and I will pay you all. 30  And he would not, but went and cast him into prison until he should pay the debt. 31  So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry. And they came and told their lord all that was done. 32  Then his lord, after he had called him, said to him, O wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. 33  Should you not also have pitied your fellow servant, even as I had pity on you? 34  And his lord was angry, and delivered him to the tormentors until he should pay all that was due to him. 35  So likewise shall My heavenly Father do also to you, unless each one of you from your hearts forgive his brother their trespasses.

Imagine if you can, all of us survive the coming horrors and we enter the 7th millennium. We are living in one area, we have survived the end of this age and are now at rest, but none of us are talking to each other and we for the most part hate each other. We all keep the Sabbath and the Holy Days at the same time and the Sabbatical year, but we can’t stand each other because of the way we made our point about some torah portion. Or you felt embarrassed by that person when they made their point. How do you think Yehovah is going to feel to have us all there and to have saved us all just to watch us all be embittered with each other?

Once again we will have grieved the Holy Spirit.

Do you have love for those who are keeping the Torah with you? Have any of you apologized to for anything you have said that offended someone else, ever? I am not able to recall ever getting an apology from someone. I must have, but I do not remember it, it is that rare an event. When was the last time you wrote to apologize to someone?

Are you not talking to brethren because they kept Passover in March? Or are you not talking to people because they are keeping Passover in April this year?

Ladies and Gentlemen, my brethren, my family, I know I argue my positions with all that I can to show and teach you. Many times I offend you with the scriptures. I make no apology for that, but if I have ever called you names or cursed you or insulted you as a person and fellow student of the Torah, then I beg your forgiveness and I repent of doing that ever again. I may call you a big dumb ass, but I do so in love.

Mat 22:35  Then one of them, a lawyer, asked, tempting Him and saying, 36  Master, which is the great commandment in the Law? 37  Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38  This is the first and great commandment. 39  And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

Deu 6:4  Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah. 5  And you shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6  And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart.

Deu 10:12  And now, Israel, what does Jehovah your God ask of you, but to fear Jehovah your God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13  to keep the commandments of Jehovah, and His statutes, which I command you today for your good?

We are to love Yehovah with all our heart, all our soul and all our mind and to keep the commandments. This is how we show Him we love Him. We are to do the exact same thing for our fellow man and especially those of us that are brethren. We are to love each other with all our heart, with all our soul and with all our mind.

Mat 7:15  Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16  You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17  Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruits, nor can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19  Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20  Therefore by their fruits you shall know them. 21  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. 22  Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? 23  And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!

Joh 13:34  I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. As I have loved you, you should also love one another. 35  By this all shall know that you are My disciples, if you have love toward one another.

1Co 13:1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I have become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. 2  And though I have prophecies, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so as to move mountains, and do not have charity, I am nothing. 3  And though I give out all my goods to feed the poor, and though I deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, I am profited nothing. 4  Charity has patience, is kind; charity is not envious, is not vain, is not puffed up; 5  does not behave indecently, does not seek her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil. 6  Charity does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth, 7  quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8  Charity never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be abolished; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be abolished. 9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10  But when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease. 11  When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I did away with the things of an infant. 12  For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall fully know even as I also am fully known. 13  And now faith, hope, charity, these three remain; but the greatest of these is charity.

This year is the Shemitah year. How sad it has begun with confusion. But worse than anything else has been the exposure of our lack of love towards one another. And for this reason, I am thrilled that we have so much confusion. I pray you will show love towards each other. Towards those who do not see things as you do, towards those who use the name of Jesus or God, towards those Yehovah is calling and who have just begun this walk the same as you did just a few years ago. Show mercy and stop grieving the Holy Spirit this Shemitah year and from now until eternity.
