Shabbat Shalom to our Family around the world
Mail This Week
After last weeks article, I received the following email.
For the past little while, I have had this nagging inclination to send you pictures of my two apple trees and tell you the story of the heated argument that I had with my wife last year during the sabbatical year and the effect that the disobedience has had on the trees this year. I have mentioned in the past that I am a very private person (as you may recall, I produce my books/videos completely public domain and without attaching my name to them), so I tend to avoid engaging in social media such as emailing someone such yourself as much as possible. I say to myself, “what would Joseph Dumond care about my trees in my back yard?” — But, then you go and write about your 50% moldy grapes and your wife having harvested them during the sabbatical year.
So, here’s my story:
My family kept the sabbatical year last year as best we could, with one glaring exception at our home concerning two apple trees in our back yard. During the year, our young trees produced an unusually large amount of apples. Not having a garden last year, it was nice to pick an apple and eat one now and then, and I even picked a bag full of the best looking ones when my wife wanted to make a few deserts with them. Although we had – and still have several leftover — cans of dried apples, the fresh ones were a treat. No big deal.
However, then came the demand by my wife that the ladder be brought out and EVERY apple be picked. I once again for the millionth time explained the sabbatical year again (my children understand, and were tired of me having to re-explain it to her yet again), but I got the “crazy religious freak” treatment yet again. The argument turned bitter, and my wife as usual made me want to hide up in a corner of the attic (see Proverbs 21:9). Sometimes, just to make some sort of peace in the home, I have to just give in to her violent temper. I could go into details here, but I won’t. In the end, every single apple was picked from both trees (although I secretly tossed about hundred out into the field).
Below, you can see two pictures that I shot of these two trees this morning after reading your update on your garden:
As you will notice, the tree on the left is in perfect health and the tree on the right has suffered a blight on the leaves, has been violently attacked by carpenter ants at the base, has begun to lean to one side, and will most likely die and need to be removed. In addition, neither tree has produced apples this year as strong and unusual hail storm came through and destroyed the blossoms earlier in the spring – although you may have noticed that the tree on the right actually has one shriveled up and spotted apple about an inch in size as if that one apple is there just to make a point.
So, yeah, my frustration and eventual thoughts were similar to yours: Go figure.
But, at least we can share some comradery and “Go figure” together.
Israel Tour 2017 Are you Coming.
With James out of the country, I am not able to update the tour of Israel information.
So let me announce it here, that we have canceled our tour this year. It seems that too many thought it was too expensive.
But Aaron Lipken has offered us another tour.
We are looking to do the following.
You book your own flights and you book your own rooms and you look after your own meals. I will provide you with walking tours around the City of David and Jerusalem and Mount of Olives. You will see things and understand your bible unlike any one else has shown you.
We will also provide one bus tour to the Gilgal sites, Joshua’s Altar and Beit El the place of Joshua’s Dream of the ladder to heaven.
- 08:00 Pick up from Jerusalem
- 09:00 Gilgal Argaman
- 10:30 Gilgal Yafit
- 12:00 Lunch on Mt. Gerizim (not included)
- 01:00 Shechem lookout
- 02:00 Ascend Mt. Ebal from Shavey Shomron
- 03:00 Tour of altar
- 06:00 Site of Jacob’s Dream of The Ladder
- 08:00 Drop off in Jerusalem
We are considering still a tour into Jordan to see Mt. Nebo and Baal Peor
So for both tours, the price is estimated to be about $350 per person for both. This may change depending on a number of things. So if you’re interested in joining us for one or both of these two tours please do write us ASAP.
Updates from Burundi Africa
Dear Joseph F. Dumond,Shalom to you all. We are so glad to be visited by James. Since he arrived, he has been teaching to a different group of people such as Bishops, pastors, deacons, lay workers, students of University and government officers. They have seen the errors of what they were taught and been teaching.We are taking this new truth in the Congo, Rwanda, United Republic of Tanzania as well as Burundi. We are building teams in those countries mentioned that will help us to strengthen this new truth to their respective countries. After hearing this new truth and read scriptures with deep understanding, they realized they have been lied to and they have been taught lies. Finally, they have repented.We appreciate both the financial and material support for this new truth in DRC, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya. Please be advised that our country of Burundi is the poorest country in the World. This country has been torn-up for many years due to the inter-conflict war.
James Relf is still here in Burundi keeping doing the teachings. I have featured the work he is doing in Burundi on this you-tube and some photos attached of the students attended.Blessing you allBishop Telesphore NtashimikiroCountry of Burundi
This is another group in Tanzania.Shalom to you Joseph. This the is the brief report of James Relf’s visit to Burundi.REPORT FOR JAMES RELF’S STAY AND MINISTRY IN BURUNDI FOR THE TWO WEEKS.Relf’s teachings
Venue: Transworld Radio Conference HallNumber of participants: 67Categories: Bishops, Pastors and government officers.Keys points in the teachings:Torah, the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Sabbatical years and Jubilee Cycles, numbers, bread, Feasts of Yahweh etc…To note: After the teaching of the day, participants gathered together in their categories to go through what was taught that day and think about the truth around it. They were given opportunity to ask questions where ever they did not understand or misunderstood the trainer. A majority of them accepted that they have taken away a part of the Bible, the Torah and have been misleading people.The good news was that they accepted to consider the whole Word of Yahweh and will be reading and studying it and therefore will be teaching it in whole especially in mastering the Torah which is the cornerstone of the really Bible teaching.Another praise report is that many welcomed the trainer after the teaching to go speak and teach in their churches which he accepted gladly.On the afternoon of Thursday July 13th; James Relf, Bishop Telesphore and Bishop Diomede were privileged to visit the Burundi Vice president in his office and discussed a lot about this Truth. After the briefing of Mr. James Relf to the Vice –President about the teachings, the Vice-President has so much appreciated these teachings that he has never heard and the Vice-President has concluded that he will be involved as he realized that this can save and change the Nation of BurundiThey had great and valuable time together speaking on a variety of items. We leave him to talk about the visit when he returns home.James’s teachings on Friday July 14th, 2017Venue: Transworld Radio Conference HallNumber of participants: 66Categories: Bishops, Reverends, pastors, 2 priests and Government officers.Keys points in the teachings:Hebrew alphabetThe Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Feasts of Yahweh, Torah etc…It is note that after the second day of teaching, participants made a pledge to be reading and studying the Whole Word of Yahweh and use the supportive materials to help them understand it better.James Relf’s teaching on the Sabbath 15th, 2017Venue: Church of Kinama/BujumburaNumber of participants: around 82Categories: Bishops, Reverends, Pastors, Evangelists, Teachers and Lay members.Keys points: Torah, Blessings & curses, Sabbath and Messiah.After the teachings, Bishop Telesphore took it as an opportunity to speak with the participants. It is to be noted that those who have already been indoctrinated with the Truth of considering the Torah, keeping the feasts and Sabbath as Yahweh instructs us in the Torah, many bishops, pastors and teachers are looking into having this be with their members.Many have shown how they really value the Word of Yahweh in its fullness as they have been teaching part of it (mostly the New Testament) due to ignorance.They all agree that much effort needs to be put in these teachings as they seek to reach many with this very Truth.In general, many participants have been repented for being taught and taught heresies to their flocks.PRAYER REQUEST1. We have the leading team which is trained by James and Telesphore which is able to teach in various churches here in Burundi as well as in DRC, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda. We need more prayers and support to reach the whole Africa with this valuable ministry that Yahweh has revealed us.2. My dream is also in long term, we will need a Training Center equipped with all materials in the capital city of Bujumbura, Burundi so that many can come to visit our center and read the books with questions and answers. That Center could be called “ TORAH’S TRANSLATION CENTER”.3. We have a problem of means of transport when we go to teach in countryside. To rent a vehicle is too expensive.4. Last but not least, I have a team that is able to translate the main materials in Kirundi, Swahili, French, Kinyarwanda and Lingala for this Great Lakes Region. They need more prayers and support if there is any possibility.CHALENGES FACING OUR WORKAlthough, many church leaders are awakening from their ignorance of teaching the heresies. We have also negativists who still fight against to know the really Sabbath, Torah and food to eat. They don’t like to leave their Sundays worship and keep the Feasts of the Lord. Curses are behind them.REPPORT OF THE VISIT AND SEMINARS OUTSIDE OF THE CAPITAL CITY OF BUJUMBURA ABOUT 170 KM BY OUR TORAH TEAM AND FACILITATED JAMES OUR GUEST.On the 20th of July 2017, we rent a vehicle and left Bujumbura the Capital City towards to the Province of Ngozi about 170 km. We reached there in the afternoon. We stayed in Monastery where we rented rooms. We were a team of 7 people.The teaching session started on Friday morning, where the teacher James revived many who were sleeping in the New Testament. Many questions have been raised about Christmas, Feasts, mark of the Beast, Passover, calendar; lows on food etc… all have been convinced by the answers from James. We continued the whole day to cover the New Moon and the start of the month. Unfortunately, we did not finish with our guest James because he abruptly felt unwell in the afternoon and went back to the hotel for rest as he was teaching without resting. Our leading team continued to teach and receive many questions from the audience.On the Sabbath, we went back in the morning without him and many were repented and were prayed after realizing that all we were taught them were the pure truth while before they were offering nothing to their flocks but heresy.As James his health was becoming bad, we took him back as soon as possible back to Bujumbura in the evening for medical treatment. We were so much afraid for his health condition.Key points : The Feasts of the Lord, Passover, unbelieved bread, Pentecost, Day of the Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feasts of Tabernacle, the 8th Day, the Dietary laws, heresies etc….APPRECIATION: We appreciated very much the teacher James who really understands what he teaches and able to answer all questions. Everybody who got chance to hear and being taught this teaching is fond of continuing this teachings and the trained leading team is committed to continue with the teachings using the materials left behind by James. The leading team its mind is opened and are capable to do more research to go in deeper and deeper to understand Yahweh’s word.Beyond that, the sighted moon website by Joseph F. Dumond is more helpful for those who visit it.Photos attached and youtube
A Huge Door being Opened
Rev 3:7-13 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,
“These things says He who is holy, He who is true, ‘He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’
When they arrived, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them, and how He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
Every day this past week I was being sent text messages by James almost like he was giving me a play by play of what was going on. He was making my head spin.
This week James was picked up by the Vice President of Burundi, Sindimwo Gaston. He was taken to the Hall they are going to use and by order of the President they want James, me and Telesphore to come back Sept 1 and Sept 2 to teach all day on both days. The day we arrive we will go and meet Pierre Nkurunziza President of Burundi, for a private meeting. His picture is the feature for this article.
Then on Friday and Saturday, they will have about 1000 people from all branches of Government there to hear what we have to say. They are also inviting Gov. Leaders from Rwanda, Tanzania, the District Republic of the Congo, Zambia, and Burundi. Tents will be set up outside for the overflow crowd. They will have simultaneous translators in French and Kirundi and Swahili, as well, and all of this will be a televised event and also sent out over the radio to all of those countries already mentioned.
In North America, I could only get between 20 and 150 people to come and hear this message. And now in Africa in one of the poorest nations on earth, Yehovah has called a Bishop to these truths through our books and teachings. He has in turn taught over 250 pastors and Bishops in Burundi alone and now plans to move out into the surrounding countries. And Telesphore has also reached the leadership of this one small nation and they are excited to hear what we have to say. And they are now organizing for us to come and share with them not just the doom and gloom, but how they can turn around their nations by obeying Yehovah. I have also been told that the Prime Minister will be including a portion of funding into the next budget to assist the Bishops and Pastors get the truth out to all Burundi and stop the curses that have been plaguing their country for decades. Impressive.
When you stop and think of all that has just happened, you have to go away and wonder why Yehovah is working with a ditch digger in one of the poorest nations on earth. What is He doing? But you cannot deny Yehovah is doing a work here and I have no doubt it is about to shake all of Africa.
This is HUGE!!!! What other Torah teachers are speaking to the leaders of a nation as we did in the Philippines and now again Yehovah is opening this door in the Heart of Africa. Name just one. I am telling you Yehovah is doing something here through sightedmoon.com. We are the only ministry that teaches you to keep the Sabbatical year. We are the only ones that have kept the past two Sabbatical years as well as the Holy Days according to the crescent moon and the barley being Aviv.
We have been attacked and ridiculed and ostracized and we kept the faith. We stood alone when we had to. And now this door is being opened.
Brethren, we broke the bank to send James to Burundi this time and to get him home this coming week and we borrowed to get it done. I am once again calling on each of you to help raise the $5000 US that we now need to fly both of us back to Burundi for this High-Level Meeting that is being set up. Would you, could you find a way to help sponsor this trip?
I recently saw a messianic ministry announce they had $1.4 Million so they could buy this building. And they were asking their members for an additional $1/2 million to renovate it. We at Sightedmoon have never had that kind of money. But with the $20 and $50 donations that some of you send in, we have been able to do a work that blows my mind. Just look at the reach we have had.
We are not buying buildings nor paying my mortgage. We are doing a work that is producing fruit. We are asking you to help us so that we can raise up still more fruit. Will you seriously consider joining us now at this time? Will you send in an additional donation and for many of you, your first donation to help us do our part to get to this important meeting in which we can reach the leadership of the heart of Africa? Please do pray about this and ask Yehovah to bless the words that are to come out of our mouths. To bless these people who have suffered from the curses for so long that they now want to obey and be blessed. And they are ready to do what they are told.
Indeed the very parable we have been saying for years is coming to pass. this message is going out to the nations and they are answering the call that Israel, the 12 tribes would not answer.
Mat 22:1 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.” ’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
We are asking you to be a part of this and help us.
