From Last weeks News letter we had the following responses.
I have only read a portion of today’s newsletter, and will finish it later when not rushed preparing for Shabbat, but I was so tearfully joyful to hear that Rico Cortez and you had talked, and you were both excited about the other being receptive! Yes! This is as it should be between brothers “midrash”-ing together… this is how the Ruach Kodesh is invited in, and we are then allowed to hear Him! Was blessed to hear that the Vines are looking beautiful from Boaz, and just the general tenor of the newsletter was of LIFE ! Thank you for your faithful obedience Joseph, may I pour myself out in like manor for our Messiah and His plan of redemption, that always was, is, and shall always be.
I do not recall what was said from the past but someone else remembered they had been offensive to me and during this time of repentance they have taken advantage of this to apologize. May her name be found in the book of life for being obedient to Yehovah.
Dear Joe, I’m sorry for being offensive. Please forgive me. I thought lately about Israel being a nation as of 1948, Israel is the 12 tribes not one or two. Just a thought. thank you for all the work you do. Susan
I have also read how many of you are looking inward and examining yourselves. This is a great thing.
I have this past six months gone through some of the hardest decisions I have had to make for some time. I have had to change jobs. But this is not just a change from one job to another although I am still digging ditches.
This move has meant that I will be leaving the source of my income for the past 7 years to return to the ranks of the local Union. I had to prove my skills all over again on a machine I had never operated before with all eyes on my every move for the first week. And it seems I will be going on many machines I have not operated before and expected to perform at the top of my skill level digging around some dangerous underground situations.
It also means I will be selling all of my equipment. I had long ago laid off any personal I was employing. This means no more huge repair bill, and no more enormous fuel bills. No more huge insurance bills and even a rebate. It also mean no more working 20 hour days trying to fit it all in, just to make a buck so I can pay it to the mechanic. It also means I will not have this self-employed income to draw on to support the things I have done in the past. Namely this work.
I see Yehovah’s hand orchestrating this. And although it has been stressful as I tried to figure out what to do and how to do it, I can now see what He is preparing here. Hind sight is always 20/20. We now have about one month before the auction sale and this phase of my life is sold away.
Those of you who say to just sit back and let Yehovah do it all, do not know Yehovah. You are still living with the Christian lies you were raised with. Abraham had to walk from Haran to Be’er Sheba. Many days journey trying to figure out where he was going. Abraham had to take the knife to slay Isaac and the wood and walk a number of days all the time trying to figure out how Isaac would be his heir and yet he was about to kill him. You have to DO thing brethren. Not just sit on a pew and let Yehovah do it for you. You have to make the effort.
You are to work as if it all depends on you to get it done and know that Yehovah is the one that is going to open the doors ONCE YOU GET TO THE DOOR. But you have to bang on the door to see if this is the one.
My life is actually becoming simpler and will be less stressful. Well maybe.
We have just learned, that at the Falls Creek Falls State park we are going to be having Sukkot in, there are two other Sukkot groups there in the other sections. Our section is now down to just 10, 8, 5 spots left with many of the sites already having two or three campers on them.
So once again here is an example of Yehovah doing something. A few women wanted to keep Sukkot together for the second or third year in a row now. They invited a few others to join them.
Then they asked me to come on a lark. After praying about this and deciding not to go to Israel this fall but instead looking for a venue to share the teachings of the Sabbatical years, I said I would come.
We have people coming from South Africa and Canada to this State Park and we also have a film crew going to record the teachings to help share this message. We have had to prepare new teachings that I have not yet shared but one time to our group in Sarnia.
And now we learn that a total of three groups including our own will be keeping Sukkot at the same campsite. There will be shofars everywhere. And we are the only ones to have reserved the one and only hall for the entire time there.
If you want to join us you need to let us know ASAP. Here are the details. http://poasukkot2013.weebly.com
During the 40 days of repentance we come to the first of the fall Feast days. This Feast day comes with just 10 days left from the original 40. This Feast is called the Feast of Trumpets because we are commanded to blow the Shofar on this day.
Lev 23:24 Speak to the sons of Israel saying: In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath, a memorial summons, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no work of labor but you shall offer a fire offering to Jehovah.
Num 29:1 And in the seventh month, on the first of the month, you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no laboring work. It is a day of blowing the trumpets to you.
Now keep this in mind as you study this message out this week.
We are right now in the 40 years of repentance leading up to the time when Satan is going to be locked away in 2033 on the Day of Atonement. Look at the charts in the book The Prophecies of Abraham, and look at this present Jubilee cycle to understand.
We have the tetrad of 4 Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015 on each of the High Holy Days of Passover and Sukkot in both years. This is next year already. And a blood moon is an omen of war coming to Israel. Israel being the USA and UK countries.
Then in 2016 is the next Sabbatical year. You had better plan on keeping it.
The reason being is that the next Sabbatical cycle begins in 2017 and it is the 4th curse of Lev 26 which is war. You need to show Yehovah you will be obedient and keep His commandments. One being to keep the Sabbatical years, and the next one is 2016. But have you proven this to yourself yet?
Lev 26:23 And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me, 24 then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.
Since 2005 I have been telling you this.
What’s more, in the 70 Shabua of Daniel, our next book we show you that this war is climaxed in 2020 when Israel, the USA and UK, are defeated.
We also see this in the teaching we have on the Prophecy in the Law of Niddah and in another book we are working on about the 2300 days of hell and Joseph’s 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine.
All of this pointing to 2020 as an epic turning point in our history.
These 40 days of repentance we do each year typify this actual time that we are living in right now. Last week I showed you how the life of Elijah and Yehshua and Moses all give us clues to this time right now.
But after the war and after Israel, (the USA and UK and her commonwealth nations), are defeated then comes the 5th curse of captivity. We read of this curse again in Lev 26.
Lev 26:27 And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me, 28 then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat. 30 And I will destroy your high places and cut down your images, and throw your carcasses on the carcasses of your idols, and My soul shall despise you. 31 And I will make your cities waste and cause your sanctuaries to be deserted. And I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. 32 And I will turn the land into wasteland. And your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it. 33 And I will scatter you among the nations, and will draw out a sword after you. And your land shall be waste, and your cities waste. 34 Then shall the land enjoy its sabbaths, as long as it lies waste, and you are in your enemies’ land; then shall the land rest and enjoy its sabbaths. 35 As long as it lies waste it shall rest, because it did not rest in your sabbaths when you lived on it. 36 And on those of you that are left I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies. And the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them, and they shall flee as if fleeing from a sword. And they shall fall when none pursues. 37 And they shall fall on one another, as if it were before a sword, when none pursues. And you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38 And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39 And they that are left of you shall putrefy in their iniquity in the lands of your enemies. And also they shall putrefy with them in the iniquities of their fathers.
You will be in captivity. Those of you who think you are in captivity now, have no clue, none once so ever. But should you survive the war and the starvation and the diseases and the cannibalism, and the deportations in slave trains and ships, then, you will know what real captivity is. Then you will know.
This captivity cycle goes from 2024 to 2030. A total of 7 years. It is during this time in 2026 that the two witnesses begin to call for the release do the captives from the Beast power. And it is during this time that it does not rain for 3 ½ years and ¼ of the earth population dies. How are you going to survive that when you are a slave to someone else?
Oh I forgot your going to be raptured out. I do not have time in this News letter to show those who still belief in the “left behind” lies that promote this false teaching. You are not raptured out before the Great Tribulation or Mid Trib or Post Trib. Those Christians who believe in and teach the Rapture Theory will not be Raptured out at all. You will be alive by the very grace of Yehovah if you are alive at all.
How do I know this? Because most of those who believe in the rapture do not keep or believe the Torah, that is how I know. Read Ezekiel 20 and know how rebellious we all are and know that Yehovah is going to purge out the rebellious ones. Those who will not keep the Sabbath or the Holy Days or the Sabbatical years. Notice in the next verse you all will be moved from your present location, but those who rebel will not enter into the promised land. This means you will die along the way.
Eze 20:38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels and those who sin against Me. I will bring them out from the land where they reside, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.
At the beginning of these 7 years of captivity is the year 2024 and it represents the Feast of Trumpets. Just 11 years from now
We arrive at this conclusion by assigning the 8th day of the Feast of Sukkot to the Jubilee year in 2045 and then counting backwards for each of the Feasts and assigning them to years separated by the same number of days the Feast day are separated by.
From 8th Day Feast we count back to the First Day of Sukkot, which is 8 days. In like manner we count back from the Jubilee year in 2045 by 8 years to arrive at the year 2038. 5 days before Sukkot is the Day of Atonement and 5 year before 2038 is 2033. This is the year that Satan is locked away on the Day of Atonement.
When we count back from Atonement 10 days we arrive at the Feast of Trumpets. Again in like manner we count back 10 years from 2033 to arrive at 2024 the year of Feast of Trumpets.
So what does this mean?
In Jewish thought, the shofar is a wake-up call. In the liturgy, and in literature, it is frequently described as a clarion, or as having a clarion call. The shofar, especially on Rosh haShanah, is meant to shock Jews out of complacence and force them to look around and see the world, and themselves, anew. Historically, the shofar was used as a war trumpet in the Book of Joshua. The trumpets that “brought the walls tumbling down” were shofarot, and their sound was said to inspire the Israelites and strike fear their enemies. Again, like a clarion, the shofar was meant to inspire awe.
We are told by Paul something very important in; Col 2:16 Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or in respect of a feast, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths. 17 For these are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.
Don’t let anyone tell you not to keep the dietary laws, or the Holy Days, or the Feast of Trumpets which is the only one done according to the New Moon, because they show us something in the future. They are a shadow picture of what is coming.
The New Moon (the start of every month) is the most pivotal date in the Calendar. Without the New Moon, we could not have any of the Holy Days. All the Holy Days revolve around the date of the New Moon. The New Moon tells us which day is the first of the month.
Nowadays many use a set calendar to tell them when the New Moon is celebrated, and thus when all the other days of that month will occur. It was not always like that, and it will not always be like that. This is known as the Conjunction Calendar.
In order for the new month to begin, the Sanhedrin (highest Jewish Court) must declare “Rosh Chodesh.” (The Sanhedrin does not exist today, for technical reasons, but someday it will be reinstated, either after the Messiah comes, or just before the Messiah comes.) Rosh Chodesh literally means “Head of the Month.”
When the Sanhedrin declared the new month that day was Rosh Chodesh, and it was therefore a minor Holiday, with specific levels of holiness attached to it. The Talmud therefore refers to that process as “Sanctifying the New Moon.”
Rosh Chodesh was declared only after two witnesses came to the Sanhedrin and testified that they had seen the new moon (a little piece of the moon beginning to show, the first sliver) during the previous night. If no witnesses showed up by the thirtieth day of the month, Rosh Chodesh was declared on the thirty-first day (the previous month will therefore have thirty days), and all the dates of the coming month were thus set.
If there were Holidays during that month, this declaration also determined which days were Holidays, and therefore which days were holy. There are only two months in which there are Holy Days. They are the First month of the year and the 7th month.
When the Sanhedrin realized that Constantinius, the Christian Caesar, was going to disband the Sanhedrin, one of the most important things they did was to calculate all the New Moons until the year 6,000 of Creation (which corresponds to 2240 C.E.), and made the proper declarations for all of them. This is the current method used by those who follow the Conjunction moon to determine the Feast days.
The Feast of Trumpets is the one feast, and the only feast that takes place on the First day of the seventh month. This means that it must be a sighted moon to begin this Feast. This also means that Two Witnesses must have seen the moon to declare the beginning of the month.
And because there is that chance that no one will see the moon due to it setting to quickly before it becomes visible or it is hidden by clouds, then you never know if the moon is actually going to be seen or not. If it is not seen then the month is a 30 day month and one more day is added to the 29 day count.
And for this reason the Feast of Trumpets if also known as the Feast that comes at a day and an hour no man knows. And indeed no man can know this time until it is actually witnessed by some people. You can never plan for this.
But Paul also said that 1Th 4:13 But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, that you be not grieved, even as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him all those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. 15 For we say this to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall not go before those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
I want you to notice what Paul has said and I want you Brethren not to be ignorant of the times.
16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God.
Judah does not know what this Feast of Trumpets means. Did you know that? We have written on this before and you can read it later at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=176
Who is it that is going to come down from Heaven on Trumpet? Paul is telling you it is Yehovah Himself. Do you comprehend this?
Yehshua said Joh 14:8 Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. 9 Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works.
Yehshua is telling Philip that He, Yehshua was also the Father. They are the same, not two and not three. But one and the same person.
“Behold, this is our God; We have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is Yehovah; We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.” – Isaiah 25:9
The word for Salvation is H3444
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
For I am Yehovah your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior… – Isaiah 43:3
“You are My witnesses,” says Yehovah, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am Yehovah,
And besides Me there is no Savior. – Isaiah 43:10-11
The word Savior here is H3467
A primitive root; properly to be open, wide or free, that is, (by implication) to be safe; causatively to free or succor: – X at all, avenging, defend, deliver (-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save (-iour), get victory.
Read these verses again. Besides Yehovah THERE IS NO SAVIOR. So who is Yehshua?
Thus says Yehovah: “…They will plead with you, saying: ‘Surely God is in you, and there is no other, no god besides Him.’” Truly, you are a God who hides Himself, O God of Israel, the Savior. All of them are put to shame and confounded; the makers of idols go in confusion together. But Israel is saved by Yehovah with everlasting salvation; you shall not be put to shame or confounded to all eternity. For thus says Yehovah, who created the heavens (he is God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it; He did not create it empty, He formed it to be inhabited!): “I am Yehovah, and there is no other. I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, ‘Seek me in vain.’ I Yehovah speak the truth; I declare what is right. “Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you survivors of the nations! They have no knowledge who carry about their wooden idols, and keep on praying to a god that cannot save. Declare and present your case; let them take counsel together! Who told this long ago? Who declared it of old? Was it not I, Yehovah? And there is no other god besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none besides Me. “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By Myself I have sworn; from My mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’ – Isaiah 45:14-23
“Yet I am Yehovah your God ever since the land of Egypt, And you shall know no God but Me; For there is no Savior besides Me.” – Hosea 13:4
To whom will you liken Me and make Me equal, and compare Me, that we may be alike? …for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, …I bring near My righteousness; it is not far off, and My salvation will not delay; I will put salvation in Zion, for Israel My glory.” – Isaiah 46:5,9,13
For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it, for how should My Name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another. “Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel, whom I called! I am He; I am the first, and I am the last. – Isaiah 48:11-12
Rev 1:10 I came to be in the Spirit in the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. Also, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. 13 And having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands. And in the midst of the seven lampstands I saw One like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet, and tied around the breast with a golden band. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 And His feet were like burnished brass having been fired in a furnace. And His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 And He had seven stars in His right hand, and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. And His face was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying to me, Do not fear, I am the First and the Last, 18 and the Living One, and I became dead, and behold, I am alive for ever and ever, Amen. And I have the keys of hell and of death.
It is Yehovah who is the FIRST AND THE LAST. Yehovah.
Rev 22:12 And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each according as his work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last. 14 Blessed are they who do His commandments, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and they may enter in by the gates into the city.
Deu 6:4 Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.
People quote this and say this out loud and then in the same breath go on to say that Yehovah is a plurality of two or three gods or more. But this is not what scripture says. He is not two gods or a trinity. Yehovah is One and He is the one that we nailed to the tree because of our sins.
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.
Joh 1:9 He was the true Light; He enlightens every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own received Him not. 12 But as many as received Him, He gave to them authority to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name, 13 who were born, not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but were born of God. 14 And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth.
It was Yehovah who was that Word, He was that Torah and it was Yehovah who is the one and only God and it was Yehovah who became flesh.
It is Yehovah who is going to come on Trumpets.
Isa 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also has become my salvation.
Yehovah my Salvation is Yehovah my Yehshua.
Yehshua means Yehovah is Salvation.
Mat 24:29 And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 30 And then the sign of the Son of Man shall appear in the heavens. And then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of the heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
I am telling you that on this Feast of Trumpets in 2024 it is going to be Yehovah that is coming to shake the heavens.
We have a prophecy from Isaiah about this.
Isa 7:10 And Jehovah spoke again to Ahaz, saying, 11 Ask a sign of Jehovah your God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. 12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, nor will I tempt Jehovah. 13 And He said, Hear now, O house of David; is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? 14 So, the Lord Himself shall give you a sign. Behold, the virgin will conceive and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel.
Mat 1:22 And all this hath come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 23 `Lo, the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,’ which is, being interpreted `With us he is God.’
It was on the Feast of Trumpets in 3 B.C. that God With US was born just as Isaiah said he would be. We have explained this in our News letter Conjunction or Sighted Which? https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=22 which proves the day Yehovah was born on which is the 1st day of the 7th Month and is by the sighted moon and He was called Immanuel and Yehshua God with us and Yehovah is Salvation. This is the day and the hour that no man can know. You will also want to read the article about the Return of Yahshua. https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=20
We have just described to you how Israel, all 12 tribes, The USA and UK nations will be defeated and destroyed so that only about 10% will be left alive. Israel is betrothed to Yehovah. These are the marriage vows made at Mount Sinai.
Yehovah is coming back on the Feast of Trumpets to avenge the severe cruelty the nations of the world have done to Israel and to once again rescue her from the Beast Power.
These are the trumpet blast and the vials of Revelation being administered to those on this earth.
Earlier we quoted what Yehshua said to Philip when asked to show them the Father.
Joh 14:9 Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works.
Now read the rest of what He said because many of you are going to send this to me as you either object or wrestle with what I have said this week.
Joh 14:10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the very works themselves.
Again this is what Isaiah has said
“Behold, this is our God; We have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is Yehovah; We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.” – Isaiah 25:9
The word for Salvation is H3444
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
For I am Yehovah your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior… – Isaiah 43:3
John 14:12 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me, the works that I do he shall do also, and greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you may ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
In what name do we ask?
We all used to pray in the name of Jesus. Some of us used to pray in the name of Saint Anthony or Mary or Joseph or Paul and one of the Apostles. But is that what we are told to do here?
Then we learned that Jesus was a Jew! Then we understood His name was Jewish and it was Yehshua, a Hebrew name for Joshua which is SALVATION. Again see H3444 above.
And you have just read again what Isaiah has said on this. Yehovah is SALVATION. Yehovah was the SAVIOR. You just read it again in Isaiah.
We are being told by Yehovah Yehshua to pray in HIS name; that is in the name of YEHOVAH!
John 14:14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. 15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Who gave us the Commandments? YEHOVAH did at Mount Sinai with loud Trumpets announcing HIS arrival and even louder ones just prior to HIS speaking.
Exo 19:18 And Mount Sinai was smoking, all of it, because Jehovah came down upon it in fire. And the smoke of it went up like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly. 19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and became very strong, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.
And what did Yehovah say first of all when He spoke to the people?
Exo 20:1 And God spoke all these words, saying, 2 I am Jehovah your God, who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 You shall not make to yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I Jehovah your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those that hate me, 6 and showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me and keep My commandments. 7 You shall not take the name of Jehovah your God in vain. For Jehovah will not hold him guiltless that takes His name in vain.
We are to pray in the name of Yehovah, not in any other name.
Psa 122:4 where the tribes go up, the tribes of Jehovah, to the testimony of Israel, to give thanks to the name of Jehovah.
We are to give thanks to the name of Yehovah. His name is fearful and awesome
Deu 28:58 If you will not observe to do all the words of this Law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and fearful name, JEHOVAH YOUR GOD,
We are to call upon the name of Yehovah and none other.
Psa 18:6 In my distress I called on Jehovah, and I cried to my God; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before Him, into His ears.
Psa 118:5 I called on Jehovah in distress; Jehovah answered me, and set me in a large place.
Psa 50:14 Offer to God thanksgiving; and pay your vows to the Most High; 15 and call on Me in the day of trouble; and I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.
Psa 86:6 Give ear, O Jehovah, to my prayer; and attend to the voice of my prayers. 7 In the day of my trouble I will call on You; for You will answer me.
Psa 81:7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah. 8 Hear, O My people, and I will testify to you; O Israel, if you will listen to Me, 9 there shall be no strange god in you; nor shall you worship any strange god. 10 I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 11 But My people would not listen to My voice, and Israel would have none of Me.
Psa 116:4 Then I called on the name of Jehovah; O Jehovah, I beseech You, deliver my soul. 5 Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 6 Jehovah keeps the simple; I was brought low, and He helped me.
The Apostle Paul even says we are to call upon the name of Yehovah.
Rom 10:11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone believing on Him shall not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference both of Jew and of Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call on Him. 13 For everyone, “whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without preaching? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things!”
It is interesting that Paul is here quoting from Joel chapter 2. When you read Joel 2 notice how this same chapter is speaking of the day of the LORD, the Day of Yehovah, which is the Feast of Trumpets.
Joel 2:1 Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble. For the day of Jehovah comes, for it is near at hand; 2 a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread on the mountains; a great people and a strong people; there has not been ever the like, nor shall there ever be again, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns. The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness. Yes, and nothing shall escape them. 4 As the appearance of horses is its appearance; and as war horses, so they run. 5 They shall leap like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle order. 6 Before their face the people shall be much pained; all faces shall gather blackness. 7 They shall run like mighty ones. They shall climb the wall like men of war, and they shall march each one on his way, and they shall not break their ranks. 8 And each one shall not press his brother; they each go in his paths. And if they fall behind their weapons, they shall not be cut off. 9 They shall rush on the city; they shall run on the wall; they shall climb up on the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth shall tremble before them; the heavens shall shake. The sun and the moon shall grow dark, and the stars shall gather in their light. 11 And Jehovah shall utter His voice before His army; for His camp is very great; for strong is He who does His Word. For the day of Jehovah is great and very terrible; and who can stand it? 12 Yet even now, says Jehovah, turn to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning. 13 Yes, tear your heart and not your robes, and turn to Jehovah your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He pities because of the evil. 14 Who knows if He will turn and have pity and leave a blessing behind Him, a food offering and a drink offering to Jehovah your God? 15 Blow a trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn gathering. 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, gather the elders, gather the children and those who suck the breasts. Let the bridegroom go forth out of his chamber, and the bride out of her room. 17 Let the priests, the ministers of Jehovah, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Have pity on Your people, O Jehovah, and give not Your inheritance to shame, for a proverb among those of the nations. Why should they say among the people, Where is their God? 18 Then Jehovah will be jealous for His land and pity His people. 19 Yes, Jehovah will answer and say to His people, Behold, I will send you grain, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied with it. And I will no more make you a curse among the nations. 20 But I will remove the northern army far from you, and will drive him into a barren and deserted land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his rear toward the western sea. And his stench shall come up, and his ill odor shall come up, because he was doing great things. 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice. For Jehovah will do great things. 22 Do not be afraid, beasts of the field; for the pastures of the wilderness grow green; for the tree bears its fruit, and the fig tree and the vine yield their strength. 23 Be glad then, sons of Zion, and rejoice in Jehovah your God. For He has given you the former rain according to righteousness, and He will cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten, the locust larvae, and the stripping locust, and the cutting locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of Jehovah your God, who has dealt with you wonderfully; and My people shall never be ashamed. 27 And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am Jehovah your God, and no one else; and My people shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall be afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions. 29 And also I will pour out My Spirit on the slaves and on the slave women in those days. 30 And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah. 32 And it shall be, whoever shall call on the name of Jehovah shall be saved; for salvation shall be in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, as Jehovah has said, and in the remnant whom Jehovah shall call.
It is Yehovah our Salvation, Yehovah our Yehshua that is going to Redeem us. It is Yehovah we are to pray to.
Psa 88:9 My eye mourns because of affliction; O Jehovah, I have called daily on You; I have stretched out my hands to You.
Now that we know once again the Name of Yehovah, if we are keeping the Commandments and repented from not keeping them before, then John 16:24 has a reality that is so sobering.
Joh 16:24 Before now you have asked nothing in My name; ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Even though I have now gone through all of that above and shown you whom we are to pray to and in whose name, that is we are to pray to Yehovah and ask in the name of Yehovah, some will then quote this next verse.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever, 17 the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
This is not a third god as in the trinity. Many of you still hold to the triune god family. God the father and god the son and god the holy spirit based on the above verse. We have already shown you that Yehovah was the one who came and was nailed to the tree and that it is in HIS name, the name of Yehovah that we should pray and be baptized. So what is this spirit of truth? Is it another god?
Well John the Apostle, whom Yehovah loved said the following.
Joh 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him. 24 God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
Yehovah is the spirit of truth. His Torah is the truth. This is not another god or the trinity.
Another scripture many will then throw at me will be the one many Christians also throw at the Jews to prove that Yehovah had a son named Jesus.
Pro 30:4 Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name? Surely you know.
The answer is obvious but when you have been tainted to think like most of Christianity then the answer is not so obvious.
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name? The answer is found in Isaiah.
“For I am YEHOVAH your God, the Holy One of Israel, your SAVIOR” (Isaiah 43:3).
“For I, even I, am YEHOVAH; and beside me there is no SAVIOR” (Isaiah 43:11).
“Verily, you are a God that hides yourself, O God of Israel, the SAVIOR” (Isaiah 45:15).
“… a just God and a SAVIOR; there is none beside me” (Isaiah 45:21).
“… and all flesh shall know that I YEHOVAH am your SAVIOR and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob” (Isaiah 49:26).
“… and you shall know that I YEHOVAH am your SAVIOR and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob” (Isaiah 60:16).
“… lovingkindnesses of YEHOVAH…toward the House of Israel…they are my people…so He was their SAVIOR” (Isaiah 63:7-8).
Are there any New Testament scriptures that say God is Savior just as there are in the Old Testament? Believe it or not, yes.
“And my Spirit has rejoiced in GOD my SAVIOR” (Luke 1:47).
“GOD our SAVIOR” (I Timothy 1:1).
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of GOD our SAVIOR, who will have all men to be saved” (I Timothy 2:3-4).
“Trust in the living GOD, who is the SAVIOR of all men” (I Timothy 4:10).
“GOD our SAVIOR” (Titus 1:3; 2:10; 3:4).
“To the ONLY wise GOD our SAVIOR” (Jude 25).
So we see the One True God (John 17:3) is called “God the Savior” eight times (three in Titus) in the New Testament. It is now clear that God is called “the Savior” — the Father is a Savior God! Yehovah is the Father and Yehovah is the Son.
This ten year time of trouble, The Ten years of Awe, the time of serious repentance that we are now learning to do, will be ended by our Redeemer and Savior. By Yehovah the same one who Saved our ancestor in Egypt and brought them out across the Red Sea.
Speaking of this time we are about to enter into, the time from the Feast of Trumpets to the Day of Atonement, which represents these ten years of severe trial, Isaiah say;
Isa 49:26 And I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunk with their own blood, as with sweet wine; and all flesh shall know that I Jehovah am your Savior and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
Joh 17:11 And now I am in the world no longer, but these are in the world, and I come to You, Holy Father. Keep them in Your name, those whom You have given Me, so that they may be one as We are.
Keep them in the name of Yehovah.
Again in Zephaniah we read how it is Yehovah that is coming in this time of Judgment to pour out His fury just as we were told in Lev 26.
Zep 3:8 Therefore wait for Me, says Jehovah, for the day I rise up to the prey; for My judgment is to gather the nations, for Me to collect the kingdoms, to pour on them My fury, all My hot anger. For all the earth shall be burned up with the fire of My jealousy. 9 For then I will give a clear lip to the people, to call all of them by the name of Jehovah, to serve Him with one shoulder.
With the arrival of Yehovah on the Feast of Trumpets in 2024 there is another event that takes place in this year.
We talked to you about the Covenant made with many in News letter http://www.sightedmoonnl.com/?page_id=868
We mentioned the 2300 days begins when this Covenant is finished in 2020 when Israel is defeated. At the same time this 2300 days begins the 1290 days also begins.
Dan 8:13 Then I heard a certain holy one speaking, and another holy one said to that one who spoke, Until when shall the vision last, concerning the daily sacrifice and the transgression that astounds, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled? 14 And he said to me, For two thousand, three hundred evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be vindicated.
These two Holy Ones are the two witnesses of Revelation.
Here in Daniel 8 we are told the time when the 2300 days begins. It is the time when the daily sacrifices are taken away. These are the prayers of the Saints, the bullocks of our lips. When we the people of Israel, the USA and UK and her commonwealth nations will be destroyed and killed. It is from this same point in time that the 1290 day count also begins.
On both accounts this time is Shavuot in 2020 as we shared in the News letter on the Covenant with many. 1290 days from Shavuot in 2020 takes you to two days after Christmas in 2024.
Satan will make this statute because of the imminent arrival of Yehovah just three months before when He appears in the Heavens.
Rev 13:13 And it does great wonders, so that it makes fire come down from the heaven onto the earth in the sight of men. 14 And it deceives those dwelling on the earth, because of the miracles which were given to it to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth that they should make an image to the beast who had the wound by a sword and lived. 15 And there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might both speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads, 17 even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name.
IN this first year of Captivity, satan will cause a statute to speak and men to worship it as Yehovah is seen in the Heavens and pouring out His plagues. This time will be so hard to know the truth from the lie.
Here is a little something extra for you to watch about the name.
We have many things taking place on the Feast of Trumpets in 2024 the beginning of the 10 years of Awe. This too falls during the 40 days of repentance and these last Ten days are the most severe and require our deepest reflections. We now know that Yehovah is not two or three gods. Yehovah is One! Many of us have something else to repent of now.
Triennial Torah Cycle
We continue this weekend with our regular Triennial Torah reading which can be found at?https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/files/TriennialCycleBeginningAviv.pdf
24/08/2013 Deut 32 2 Chron 33-34 Revelation 18-19
Moses’ Prophetic Blessings on Israel (Deuteronomy 32:48-33:29)
Just before his death, Moses proclaims prophetic blessings for the tribes of Israel. Similar prophecies for all the tribes were given by Jacob, which Moses recorded earlier in Genesis 49. In one of Moses’ blessings here, he actually quotes Jacob, in using the words, “on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers” (Deuteronomy 33:16; Genesis 49:26).
In attempting to locate the various tribes today, such prophecies are invaluable. The easiest tribe for most people to identify is, of course, Judah—almost universally believed to be the ancestor of the modern Jews. Considering the history of the Jewish people, including the modern state of Israel, the prophecy that the Jews would have many enemies has certainly proven to be valid (Deuteronomy 33:7). But what about the other tribes?
Though still not commonly recognized or believed, many have come to the realization that most of the tribes of Israel later migrated to Northwest Europe following their Assyrian captivity (compare 2 Kings 17; The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy).
The primary peoples of all the tribes of Israel would be those of Joseph. The father of Ephraim and Manasseh (Deuteronomy 33:17), Joseph was given the birthright, after Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, disqualified himself (Genesis 49:3-4; 1 Chronicles 5:1). Among those who accept the truth of the Israelite migrations to Northwest Europe, Joseph is commonly understood to be the forefather of the English-speaking peoples of the United States and the former British Commonwealth. Identifying the other tribes is more difficult, as there are not nearly as many biblical and historical clues to go on. Nevertheless, they apparently may be found among such nations as France, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland. Simeon (not mentioned in Deuteronomy 33) and Levi were to be scattered throughout the other tribes (Genesis 49:5-7)—though Levi was given the job of teaching God’s truth to His people (Deuteronomy 33:8-10).
Verse 27 contains a wonderful promise to Israel that certainly applies to the spiritual people of God today and always: “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” This reminds us that God will be there to “catch” us when we fall, if we devote our lives to serving Him.
Purging the Land (2 Chronicles 34:29-33; 2 Kings 23:1-20)
“Josiah’s humble, obedient response to the book was and remains a model of how all people should respond to God’s revealed Word. Josiah listened to Scripture, allowed its words of truth to judge him, and humbly confessed that he had neglected God’s commands (34:18, 19). After learning more about its truths (34:21), he shared the Scripture with others and led them in following it. He had the book read before the entire nation and led the Israelites in recommitting their lives to the Lord (34:29-31)” (”INDepth: The Book of the Law of the Lord,” Nelson Study Bible, sidebar on 2 Chronicles 34).
In 2 Kings 23:3 Josiah makes his covenant standing by a pillar—or on a pillar, as it could also be translated. This is referred to as his place in 2 Chronicles 34:31. It appears to be the coronation pillar stone mentioned in the crowning of Joash (see 2 Kings 11:14).
Josiah then essentially imposed God’s law on the people. Imposition may seem harsh, but we read in these passages that 18 years after Josiah came to the throne, there were still plenty of pagan traditions and idolatrous practices throughout Judah (2 Kings 23:4-20). This chapter highlights again how far the nation had sunk.
According to The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, although the Hebrew word translated “perverted persons” in verse 7 “denotes the ‘male shrine prostitutes,’ probably the term is used generically for prostitutes of both sexes who were employed in the heinous Canaanite fertility rites” (footnote on verse 7). Even though God forbade the practice (Deuteronomy 23:17) and reforming kings abolished it, it always came back.
The references in 2 Kings 23:8 to Geba (northern Judah) and Beersheba (southern Judah) show that high places (a generic term for worship places, not necessarily elevated) had to be rooted out everywhere. Josiah then takes steps to root out the most heinous remains of pagan worship, defiling Tophet, the place of child sacrifice in the Valley of Hinnom, and removing the idolatrous objects from God’s temple: “Apparently, the references in [2 Kings 23:11-12] are to various ceremonies involved in the worship of the sun, moon, and stars. Chariots and horses played a big part in the worship of the sun, probably because of the idea that the sun god drives across the sky in his chariot. In the literature of other nations, the sun god is pictured riding a winged chariot. Here, the horses and chariots mentioned were probably large statues, though they may have been miniature figurines used in astral worship. Rooftop shrines like those described in verse 12 were also related to this same pagan cult, which was introduced by King Ahaz” (Russell Dilday, Mastering the Old Testament, 1987, Vol. 9, p. 484). Indeed, in excavations “small horses with solar disks on their foreheads have been found both at Jerusalem and Hazor” (Nelson Study Bible note on verse 11).
Josiah started his reforms by defiling the cult places of worship and filling them with human bones (verses 14-15). Then he carried out what he had been prophesied to do by name long before in burning human bones on the pagan altar at Bethel, defiling it forever (verses 16-18; see 1 Kings 13:1-3). And he did likewise with the pagan altars throughout the land. It should be noted that this was done throughout even Samaria (2 Kings 23:19), the territory of the northern kingdom, which was recently occupied—starting about two years before the current major purge—by a major contingent of Scythians, that is, Israelites.
John sees another messenger coming down from heaven having great authority and lighted with much esteem crying with a mighty voice, “Babel the great is fallen, is fallen…!” It is filled with all manner of uncleanness due to her whoring and riotous living.
John hears another voice from heaven then saying, “come out of her My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”
Elohim is remembering her unrighteousness and they have piled up so that they reach to heaven. She is destined to receive double in recompense for her iniquities. All of her payment for her sins shall visit her in one day. Death, morning , and starvation all at once and she is to be burned with fire.
The sovereigns of the earth shall weep and mourn over her and be amazed because all the judgments are come upon her in one hour.
All the sovereins mourn because they can no longer benefit from all her merchandizing and her riches. They stand at a distance and are amazed at her judgment: the swiftness and totality of it all. Elohim completely avenges all the set apart ones who felt her wrath in this life. Then great rejoicing in heaven will take place at her destruction and demise.
John hears the voice of a large crowd rejoicing in heaven and praising Elohim for His great Deliverance! He has judged the great whore and avenged their blood upon her. HalleluYah, HalleluYah! The twenty-four elders and the four creatures fell down and worshipped Elohim. Much, much rejoicing in heaven and praises to the mighty El Shaddai is heard.
The marriage of the Lamb has no come and the Bride has now prepared herself. She receives her dress of fine linen, clean and bright. John is instructed to write, “Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!”
John saw heaven opened and a white horse was revealed. He who sat on him was called Trustworthy and True, and in righteousness He judges and fights. His robe has been dipped in blood and His Name is called: The Word of YHWH. The armies dressed in fine linen from heaven followed Him and they too rode white horses.
Out of His mouth goes a double edged sword and He is King of kings and Lord of lords. The birds of prey are called to a great feast, to feast on the flesh of the ones who followed the beast and the whore and took the mark of them. The beast, the sovereigns, their armies and all gathered to fight against the King of kings. The beast was seized, and with him the false prophet. They were thrown into the lake of fire burning with sulphur. The rest were killed with the sword which came out of the mouth of Him who sat on the white horse and all the birds of prey were filled with their flesh.
