News Letter 5845-016
26th day of the Third month 5845 years after creation
The Third Month in the Sabbatical Year
The Second Sabbatical Year of the 119th Jubilee Cycle
June 20, 2009
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
Again this past week I have received many enquiries and phone calls talking about the returning to the land of Israel. We have made some important contacts and have talked to groups who have approached this subject in the past.
My reason for doing so now is because of those things we have learned from the Prophecies of Abraham and the Sabbatical and Jubilee Year prophecies. But I do not have all the pieces to the puzzle. There are some areas that I am just not sure on. This is why I am so willing to quote another who has done the work in that area.
And when you brethren add this all up together collectively, you get a greater over all perspective. Far too many remain inside the box of their own little groups and do not venture out to see what others are saying and teaching.
In light of this I want you this week to read the book by Norman Willis, A Post Millennium Return? at http://www.nazareneisrael.org/studies/The%20Post-millennial%20Return%20Home%20Printable.pdf it is 139 pages PDF but if you’re not going to read it all, make sure you read from page 93 to past 110 if not the whole book.
In the past Norman and I have publicly disagreed about the Jubilee cycle. But I gained a brother in the process. Much of what Norman says in this book does fit in with the Jubilee cycles and the Prophesies of Abraham. In some other areas I am still not sure, but that is OK.
The state of Israel began in the mind of one man in the 1890’s. It became a reality in 1947-1948.
In like manner, we as Ephraim must begin to think together in unity on our own return to our own lands that Yahweh gave to us. Unity, and not individuality.
Here is a brief history of Theodor Herzl from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodor_Herzl
As the Paris correspondent for Neue Freie Presse, Herzl followed the Dreyfus Affair, a notorious anti-Semitic incident in France in which a French Jewish army captain was falsely convicted of spying for Germany. He witnessed mass rallies in Paris following the Dreyfus trial where many chanted “Death to the Jews!” Herzl came to reject his early ideas regarding Jewish emancipation and assimilation, and to believe that the Jews must remove themselves from Europe and create their own state.
In June, 1895, he wrote in his diary: “In Paris, as I have said, I achieved a freer attitude toward anti-Semitism… Above all, I recognized the emptiness and futility of trying to ‘combat’ anti-Semitism.” In Der Judenstaat he writes:
“ The Jewish question persists wherever Jews live in appreciable numbers. Wherever it does not exist, it is brought in together with Jewish immigrants. We are naturally drawn into those places where we are not persecuted, and our appearance there gives rise to persecution. This is the case, and will inevitably be so, everywhere, even in highly civilised countries—see, for instance, France—so long as the Jewish question is not solved on the political level. The unfortunate Jews are now carrying the seeds of anti-Semitism into England; they have already introduced it into America.
From April, 1896, when the English translation of his Der Judenstaat (The State of the Jews) appeared, Herzl became the leading spokesman for Zionism.
Herzl complemented his writing with practical work to promote Zionism on the international stage. He visited Istanbul in April, 1896, and was hailed at Sofia, Bulgaria, by a Jewish delegation. In London, the Maccabees group received him coldly, but he was granted the mandate of leadership from the Zionists of the East End of London. Within six months this mandate had been approved throughout Zionist Jewry, and Herzl traveled constantly to draw attention to his cause. His supporters, at first few in number, worked night and day, inspired by Herzl’s example.
In June 1896, he met for the first time with the Sultan of Turkey, but the Sultan refused to cede Palestine to Zionists, saying, “if one day the Islamic State falls apart then you can have Palestine for free, but as long as I am alive I would rather have my flesh be cut up than cut out Palestine from the Muslim land.”
In 1897, at considerable personal expense, he founded Die Welt of Vienna, Austria-Hungary and planned the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. He was elected president (a position he held until his death in 1904), and in 1898 he began a series of diplomatic initiatives intended to build support for a Jewish country. He was received by the German emperor on several occasions, was again granted an audience by the Ottoman emperor in Jerusalem, and attended The Hague Peace Conference, enjoying a warm reception by many other statesmen.
In 1902–03 Herzl was invited to give evidence before the British Royal Commission on Alien Immigration. The appearance brought him into close contact with members of the British government, particularly with Joseph Chamberlain, then secretary of state for the colonies, through whom he negotiated with the Egyptian government for a charter for the settlement of the Jews in Al ‘Arish, in the Sinai Peninsula, adjoining southern Palestine.
In 1903, Herzl attempted to obtain support for the Jewish homeland from Pope Pius X. Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val explained to him the Church’s policy of non possumus on such matters, saying that as long as the Jews deny the divinity of Christ, the Church certainly could not make a declaration in their favor.
On the failure of that scheme, which took him to Cairo, he received, through L. J. Greenberg, an offer (August 1903) on the part of the British government to facilitate a large Jewish settlement, with autonomous government and under British suzerainty, in British East Africa. At the same time, the Zionist movement being threatened by the Russian government, he visited St. Petersburg and was received by Sergei Witte, then finance minister, and Viacheslav Plehve, minister of the interior, the latter of whom placed on record the attitude of his government toward the Zionist movement. On that occasion Herzl submitted proposals for the amelioration of the Jewish position in Russia. He published the Russian statement, and brought the British offer, commonly known as the “Uganda Project,” before the Sixth Zionist Congress (Basel, August 1903), carrying the majority (295:178, 98 abstentions) with him on the question of investigating this offer, after the Russian delegation stormed out.
In 1905, after investigation, the Congress decided to decline the British offer and firmly committed itself to a Jewish homeland in the historic Land of Israel.
Herzl did not live to see the rejection of the Uganda plan; he died in Edlach, Lower Austria in 1904 of heart failure at age 44.
Brethren I want you to consider what could be done if we had a group of people who spoke for Joseph and the Lost House of Israel. I want you to consider what could be done if this group numbered in the Millions. I want you to consider the times we are now in. I want you to consider what it would be like to live in the land our Father gave to Abraham Isaac and Israel, our ancestors. I want you to consider what it would be like to live in country where Torah was a way of life and not just something you read about. I want you to consider…….the possibilities.
In Mt 17:11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things.
You have learned that the 7th day weekly Sabbath is the sanctified Holy day of the week, Satruday. We have hundreds of groups who now keep the Annual Holy Days each year. We may differ as to which methodology is the correct one to use whether the Hebrew calendar or the Biblical Calendar, according to the sighted moon and the Barley being Aviv. And we also have the Sabbatical years and many of us are now keeping them as well. We will have differences of doctrines, but we must become united in our desire to return home.
The Spirit of Elijah is now restoring many of these things using many different people. It is now time to be restored to the land. We need your help and your prayers.
This past Shavuot when I was in Jerusalem I went to the large market they have there. I saw huge water melons and radishes the size of your fist. I just picked a radish out of my garden and it is no bigger than any other year and is the size of silver dollar.
Remember what it says in Numbers 13:23 Then they came to the Valley of Eshcol, and there cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes; they carried it between two of them on a pole. They also brought some of the pomegranates and figs.
One cluster of grapes on a pole had to be carried by two men it was so big.
But I also want you to go on and read the end of this story where Israel refused to go into the land and they were all curse to die in the wilderness except for Joshua and Caleb. Remember the 9th of Ab, do not forget this one chapter in Israel’s sad history and don’t you repeat it, don’t you make the same mistake and refuse to do what Yahweh has shown you.
I would also like you all to share this vision with your pastors and leadership as many of you already are.
To listen to an Audio sermon by Don Esposito on Bnei Ephraim go to http://www.coyhwh.com/ and click on the audio section then listen to the audio titled Bnei Ephraim meeting from May 2009. You will have to listen carefully to what is being said, as there is a lot of background noise.
I am willing to work with others who are already doing a work in Israel on behalf of Ephraim and our return. I have contacted many groups this past week and had long discussions with them. I heard their concerns and their hopes.
Some have been doing this since 2005. Here is a video of Joel Bell and Sagiv Assulin Go to http://www.israelnet.tv/index.html , then click on videos and watch the one called Biblicalzionist Bell/Assulun
Now I am aware of the problems between Joel Bell and Monte Judah and Eddy Chumney. But it is with Sagiv Assulun that Don Esposito is working with in Israel. So I share these with you to help bring you up to speed as to what is already going on. Yahweh has known of the Prophecies of Abraham for a long time and has been preparing things long before I shared those recent finding with you.
Also here is a site call World Biblical Zionism http://www.biblicalzionist.org/ which I think is Joel Bells site.
The Rabbis in the Sanhedrin know who we are. They know us as Joes. They do have some confusion in separating us from the pagan Christians. They do not want any of that paganism that is rampant in all Christianity. But us Joes, those who practice Torah, those of us who are obedient to Torah, they are interested in. Doors are being cracked open just a little. When they are will you be ready to go through them? Get up to speed on what is happening and pray that Yahweh will guide us to the right door and that we are ready to go forward in faith. Pray for me to continue to share what we know with you all. Pray and fast for these things and for His return and that His bride be ready with her oil lamps full and extra ready.
Now in last week’s News Letter I wrote the following;
Brethren I have been asked many times if I have seen the Daniel Timeline article. The answer is yes I have. I am going to include it here for you all to look at. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4446474795946281935 This is a test. Can you tell where this brother has gone astray? Do you know why his conclusions are off? Can you explain them to him? If you cannot answer these questions after having read the past series of News Letters on the Prophecies of Abraham, and the Sabbatical and Jubilee message, then you need to return to them and read them once again.
This is exactly why many will become confused during the next 7 years as they all get excited about the tribulation that they think is about to start, but they will slowly learn, this false tribulation is not according to scriptures. Let me restate that; that many will think the tribulation is about to start. It is not! It will not be during the next 7 years!
A friend of mine has repeatedly stated that in order to understand those things I am sharing here you have to do the home work and study it out and prove it to yourself beyond all doubt. If you say ‘I said so, or some other teachers have said so’, then you have not made it your own truth. You have not proven it. Once you can prove it then it is yours and it is no longer the person who showed you. Prove all things.
I asked you to watch this video as it was to test your understanding. After this News Letter I received replies from people who were all excited about what Daniels Timeline had shown them. That in the next seven years the Messiah would be here.
Now a test is designed to check your knowledge of those things that you have learned of the subject you are covering. To see how much you know. I had to write those people and tell them they had flunked the test. They got an F. To many of you are reading this News Letter to get your ears tickled. You have not proven those things I have said one way or the other. So then when some other teaching comes along like Daniels timeline you jump on board. You have no idea which end is up and are too lazy to go and look.
2Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
I have done a bunch of the work. All you have to do is go and prove it. Some of you have and you are the ones who know. Many of you have not and you sit there as armchair quarterbacks having never been in the game, but are quick to give me a piece of your mind whenever I confront your beliefs. It is time to stop arguing with me and to get off your couch and prove whether this is in you bible or not. I do not have to prove it to you, you have to prove it to yourselves. The question is well you. Those who have flunked this little test have written to demand to be removed from this News Letter list. Instead they should go back and prove what is being taught on this site. Stop being so gullible and believing every doctrine that comes along, PROVE ALL THINGS AND HOLD FAST WHAT IS PURE.
Here is other news that you should be aware of and watching for. Keep in mind all I have said and warned you about the coming famine. We have seen it in the Sabbatical and Jubilee Prophecies and then again in the Prophecies of Abraham. And keep in mind the scriptures, especially the following;
Le 26:29 You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.
De 28:53 You shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you, in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you.
Isa 9:20 And he shall snatch on the right hand And be hungry; He shall devour on the left hand And not be satisfied; Every man shall eat the flesh of his own arm.
Jer 19:9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and everyone shall eat the flesh of his friend in the siege and in the desperation with which their enemies and those who seek their lives shall drive them to despair.” ‘
Mic 3:3 Who also eat the flesh of My people, Flay their skin from them, Break their bones, And chop them in pieces Like meat for the pot, Like flesh in the caldron.”
Zec 11:9 Then I said, “I will not feed you. Let what is dying die, and what is perishing perish. Let those that are left eat each other’s flesh.”
Rev6:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” 7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
Once the famines start they increase until the end. Each year it gets worst with some reprives.
Crops under stress as temperatures fall
Our politicians haven’t noticed that the problem may be that the world is not warming but cooling, observes Christopher Booker.
By Christopher Booker

For the second time in little over a year, it looks as though the world may be heading for a serious food crisis, thanks to our old friend “climate change”. In many parts of the world recently the weather has not been too brilliant for farmers. After a fearsomely cold winter, June brought heavy snowfall across large parts of western Canada and the northern states of the American Midwest. In Manitoba last week, it was -4ºC. North Dakota had its first June snow for 60 years.
There was midsummer snow not just in Norway and the Cairngorms, but even in Saudi Arabia. At least in the southern hemisphere it is winter, but snowfalls in New Zealand and Australia have been abnormal. There have been frosts in Brazil, elsewhere in South America they have had prolonged droughts, while in China they have had to cope with abnormal rain and freak hailstorms, which in one province killed 20 people.
None of this has given much cheer to farmers. In Canada and northern America summer planting of corn and soybeans has been way behind schedule, with the prospect of reduced yields and lower quality. Grain stocks are predicted to be down 15 per cent next year. US reserves of soya – used in animal feed and in many processed foods – are expected to fall to a 32-year low.
In China, the world’s largest wheat grower, they have been battling against the atrocious weather to bring in the harvest. (In one province they even fired chemical shells into the clouds to turn freezing hailstones into rain.) In north-west China drought has devastated crops with a plague of pests and blight. In countries such as Argentina and Brazil droughts have caused such havoc that a veteran US grain expert said last week: “In 43 years I’ve never seen anything like the decline we’re looking at in South America.”
In Europe, the weather has been a factor in well-below average predicted crop yields in eastern Europe and Ukraine. In Britain this year’s oilseed rape crop is likely to be 30 per cent below its 2008 level. And although it may be too early to predict a repeat of last year’s food shortage, which provoked riots from west Africa to Egypt and Yemen, it seems possible that world food stocks may next year again be under severe strain, threatening to repeat the steep rises which, in 2008, saw prices double what they had been two years before.
There are obviously various reasons for this concern as to whether the world can continue to feed itself, but one of them is undoubtedly the downturn in world temperatures, which has brought more cold and snow since 2007 than we have known for decades.
Three factors are vital to crops: the light and warmth of the sun, adequate rainfall and the carbon dioxide they need for photosynthesis. As we are constantly reminded, we still have plenty of that nasty, polluting CO2, which the politicians are so keen to get rid of. But there is not much they can do about the sunshine or the rainfall.
It is now more than 200 years since the great astronomer William Herschel observed a correlation between wheat prices and sunspots. When the latter were few in number, he noted, the climate turned colder and drier, crop yields fell and wheat prices rose. In the past two years, sunspot activity has dropped to its lowest point for a century. One of our biggest worries is that our politicians are so fixated on the idea that CO2 is causing global warming that most of them haven’t noticed that the problem may be that the world is not warming but cooling, with all the implications that has for whether we get enough to eat.
It is appropriate that another contributory factor to the world’s food shortage should be the millions of acres of farmland now being switched from food crops to biofuels, to stop the world warming, Last year even the experts of the European Commission admitted that, to meet the EU’s biofuel targets, we will eventually need almost all the food-growing land in Europe. But that didn’t persuade them to change their policy. They would rather we starved than did that. And the EU, we must always remember, is now our government – the one most of us didn’t vote for last week.
Prairie ranchers looking at rough year after no rain and cold temperatures
Sun Jun 14, 12:02 PM
By Bill Graveland, The Canadian Press
– Rancher Jon Fox is doing something that he never thought he’d be doing at this time of year -still feeding his 400 head of black Angus cattle near Lloydminster, Sask.
Usually by this time, his animals are out in the pasture, grazing on grass that has greened up after a long winter and moist spring.
But dust bowl conditions and cooler-than-normal temperatures in a huge swath of Alberta and Saskatchewan are threatening producers who may be struggling to find enough feed for their cattle in the months ahead.
Fox has put in an order for feed pellets to help augment his cattle’s diet.
“We put some feed out last weekend and got some rain and we’ve already let a lot of the cattle on to where we normally hay,” says Fox, whose Justamere Ranch covers 1,400 hectares.
“If we don’t get any rain in the next short while, we’re going to have to start feeding all the time and a guy doesn’t want to do that.”
The problem area runs from Edmonton east to Saskatoon and as far south as Calgary to eastern Alberta and western and central Saskatchewan.
“That’s a huge chunk of agricultural area,” said Trevor Hadwen, an agri-climate specialist with Agriculture Canada. “We’re getting reports of water supply shortages on farms which is fairly early in the season. ”
“There’s been very little run-off. There’s a large area where it’s a 1-in-100 year event.”
Hadwen said a large region has received only about 40 per cent of normal rainfall for the area and the situation seems to be getting worse.
“There are some areas that are record dry according to Environment Canada climate records. There’s a fairly large area that has not received very much rainfall in a number of years and that area has been growing into west-central Saskatchewan and southern Alberta as well,” Hadwen added.
“We’ve seen a pattern like this in 2002. In 2007 and 2008 this area was dry as well.”
In 2002 Western Canada experienced the worst drought in 133 years. Hay and grain crops were reduced throughout 75 per cent of Alberta. In Saskatchewan there was a 70 per cent drop in farm income from the previous year.
There were 110,000 tonnes of hay shipped west from Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and two ‘Say Hay’ concerts raised $1 million to help pay for the transport.
“Yeah, I think it’s very similar to 2002 for us. The only thing different is we’re still pretty good for water in our dug outs,” said Fox.
“I think everyone pretty well is in the same boat. I know there are guys even drier than us.”
Fox said there is hay still available but it is poor quality and expensive and likely to get more pricey.
Buddy Leachman from Big Gully Farm in Maidstone, Sask., said things couldn’t be much worse.
“It’s not good at all,” he said. “There is no feed left. Very much like 2002.”
Environment Canada said that while Manitoba has had more precipitation than usual, Alberta and Saskatchewan appear to be in trouble. Temperatures are also lower than normal.
“Temperature wise? We’ve had a very cool winter and early spring,” said Bill McMurtry, a meteorologist in Calgary. “Most locations in southern and central Alberta and Saskatchewan, five of the last six months have seen below normal temperatures.”
McMurtry said temperatures have been lower than normal since December.
The lower temperatures have added to the problems for farmers and ranchers, said Hadwen.
“The producers that we’re talking to are having problems not only with water supplies in the dry region but also forage growth. It’s just too cold to actually grow the pasture,” said Hadwen. “A lot of farmers are still feeding their cattle as if it was winter. The pastures just aren’t coming up because there’s no water.”
The lack of moisture is likely to cause a problem in Prairie forests too.
The fire hazard ranges from moderate in southern Alberta to high in the northern regions, said Anastasia Drummond with Alberta Sustainable Resource Development.
“The further north and east you go the hazard is climbing,” said Drummond.
“Each consecutive day we don’t see organized rainfall that hazard will continue to climb. Add to that we’re also heading into lightning season and that will present a whole new set of challenges. The lightning is when things really start to heat up.”
On top of these two stories this week I also received the following from Rivival List which subscribes to this News Letter and they shared the following chart which you can view at http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachments/2009OutlookFinal_Long.pdf which show you where we are economically compared to the great depression. Forget all the hoop lah that comes from the President and the News. Just look at the facts. Sobering to say to the least.
And as I am about to send this out one more story come in from the United Nations at http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=31197&Cr=hunger&Cr1=
Number of world’s hungry to top 1 billion this year – UN food agency
19 June 2009 – The number of people on the brink of starvation is set to reach a record high of 1.02 billion – or one-sixth of the global population – in 2009, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) projected today.
“A dangerous mix of the global economic slowdown combined with stubbornly high food prices in many countries has pushed some 100 million more people than last year into chronic hunger and poverty,” said FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf, with the lower incomes and rising unemployment reducing access to food for the poor.
Charactering it as a “silent hunger crisis,” he said that it threatens world peace and security, highlighting the need for a broad consensus on eradicating global hunger.
I have had many phone calls this past week and emails too.
One sister said that now that I have asked for donations I had to be transparent and show how those donations are spent. Another brother said you should not muzzle the ox that is doing the work. Then another brother called who has been reading the News Letter’s almost since I began them in 2006. It was this brother who strongly and gently rebuked me for the way I have been not allowing some to assist me. It boils down to my pride. Please forgive me.
I have never wanted to bother the brethren, and I had a good job and could afford the expenses that have come with doing this web site and teaching those that write in. But now like many of you I find myself working only 2 or 3 days a week and finding it difficult to make ends meet. I do not want to burden the brethren, nor do I want to do as this brother suggested and deny the brethren the opportunity to help and to be blessed by Yahweh for doing so.
Then this week I get this letter from a sister:
I wanted to let you know about this.
As you know I had not had any work since February, and I closed out one of my accounts for Petra.
Well for some reason I checked on that account, and it was a little short of what I had sent. I transferred some more money from a savings, it appeared you had not yet tried to cash that check. It is covered.
The next morning I had a call from some one who needed a live-in caregiver, though I do not do live-in, they asked that I fill in. So I filled in for a couple of days, the job paid what I sent plus one and a half times more.
They liked me so much they wanted me to fill in on week ends, I told them thank you but I do not work on the Sabbath day, from Friday night to Saturday night. Since they are hiring a new person they are going to ask her to take Sunday and Monday for her days off. If she accepts I will have a job. (pays cash)
Thank you Joseph for the opportunity to donate for Petra.
I suppose you will be getting a lot of these reports.
Please forgive me brethren. I had not considered that I was not giving you an opportunity to be blessed.
I have also set some goals to reach and I am unable to reach them by myself. Those goals are to turn the Prophecies of Abraham into a DVD which is going to now cost about $5000 down from the original $12,000. To set up a food processing business in Israel, cost unknown at this time. To lease some land to farm and house the brethren, and the cost I estimated would be less than $50 million. I am hoping to do this through this Ephriamite movement we are working on.
So let me share with you my cost and expenses and the donations received to date.
To set up the web site including start up and maintenance up to the present time, cost about $3000. I have forgotten exactly, All paid by myself. My IT guy has done a ton of extra work in helping me to bring to you the Prophecies of Abraham. Also the web site is almost maxed out again. We have to go to a bigger server again and this is going to cost money on a regular basis just to keep it up. Some of you may notice that the current site has a few bugs in it. This is due the volume coming in and size of this server. We will soon be at 400,000 hits.
The printing of booklets cost about $40 for each of the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycle books which I cannot sell. Each of the smaller booklets of those articles I have sent out cost about $20 each to print. So when I send out a complete package with these booklets and DVD it cost about $120-$150 each time. Postage for this cost between $30-$60 depending on how far they have to go.
I have sent out about 100 of these packages to many of the leaders of other groups, all paid for by myself.
The Editing of the Chronological Order of Prophecies cost about $2000 which was done with a single Mom in the faith, again all paid for by myself. This book is still not put together and is ready to be published. To self publish the book well cost about $4000. Then I would have to mail each book and I am guessing the postage to be around $15 and I still believe I could not sell them.
The material I have given away when I speak at the Holy Days cost between $20 for a booklet up to the $35 for the books of Noah’s Ark, again paid for by myself. There are about 20 people at each Holy Day.
My computer has crashed three times in doing this and we have replaced them each time at about $2000 cost with each upgrade.
Each News Letter requires about 20-40 hours of my time in research and writing and editing. This is on top of the regular job I used to do where I left the house at 5Am and returned at 7:30 Pm. This would not include the time spent doing the radio shows which has now ended. At the CAW each person was paid about $72 per hour. In construction the gross wage package for each employee is about $48 per hour. If I work just 20 hours each week on the news letter and answer emails, and I pay myself a wage of just $25 that would be $500 per week and if I calculate this since July 2006 to July 2009 it comes to a total of $78,000 of which I have not received or paid myself any wages.
In my library of books and DVD’s, and tapes are roughly about 300 which all cost about $30 each. I have bought these over the past number of years as I searched for the truth on many subjects which also include many on ancient history. I do have many other books but I do not include them in this count. Each of these books and each DVD and tape has to be listened to and studied. I do not know how much time is spent on this.
In making the DVD with the Prophecy club, they were to take care of everything. But the day before I was go on this tour I was asked if I would cover the airfare otherwise the tour would not happen. I did. By the end of the tour I was owed over $4000 dollars. This includes my expenses and the donations the brethren had given to me which they collected each night and never passed along to me. To date I have been given 50 DVD’s and one cheque which just came a couple of months ago for $500. At the Day of Atonement this fall in this Sabbatical year I will write the Prophecy Club and advise them that the debt they owe me is wiped clean as we are told to do in Deuteronomy 15:1-5
1 “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. 2 And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the Lord’s release. 3 Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up your claim to what is owed by your brother, 4 except when there may be no poor among you; for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance– 5 only if you carefully obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today.
None of the profits from the DVD’s sold by the prophecy Club comes to me. Each of the DVD’s I give away cost me about $10-$20 in postage.
To date I have received in cash or donations since 2005, $700 dollars up to Passover of this year. I also have in the last couple of months received $720 in donations from various brethren around the world.
These totals are, in one US account $795.61 and in the Canadian account $2790.33 of which is $2000 from my own funds to go to the Feast this year.
Let me make this very plain. I am extremely grateful for any help I have received from brethren. I thank you all for your help. I have been happy to reach into my pocket and pay for those things that had to be done in order to share these teaching with you all. I do not regret one thing. But I can no longer afford to do so.
In 2004 I prayed for Understanding and knowledge and wisdom too. I had read how Solomon had done this and I thought it a good thing to do. So I began to pray for these things.
In 2005 I remember that my prayer many times was a question I had. I had just shown the Leadership at United Church of God the understanding of the Sighted moon. I then came to understand the Jubilee cycles and wanted to show them this too. But they would not hear me.
So I prayed. Father what is the point of me learning all these things and understanding so many of the scriptures if I can’t share them with anyone. Then I was given the opportunity to speak not once but twice at the Feast in New England in 2005 and met many will grounded brethren.
I continued to pray and ask what use is it for anyone to gain all this knowledge of His Torah and not be able to share it with others. It was vanity and useless. It would be better not to know anything, if you cannot share what you learn with others and them with you.
Then in July of 2006 United asked me to not come back and I began the web site that same week. It was a blessing in disguise and I only figured it out two years later. Yahweh had answered my prayers and given me a worldwide audience to share what I had and would later learn. I never expected this. I never went looking for it. But it is exactly what I had prayed for, an opportunity to share what I had learned.
I have not done this to gain fortune or fame. I just wanted to or felt I had to warn who ever would listen, about the things I had learned in the Jubilee message and now the Prophecies of Abraham.
Many of you tell me I am a watchman, and the verses in Ezekiel scare me enough that I must speak out. This is my motivation. This is what drives me. So the expenses have not concerned me, as I was able to take care of them. I am no longer able to do that.
As you can see I have spent far more than I have been given financially. I do not regret this. But now we are at a new frontier, on the verge of the 7th millennium when Yahshua will rule. 5 of the brides are asleep and have not studied to build up their supply of oil. The other 5 are preparing and have their oil full by studying. Which one are you? Which bride will you be, the one who is asleep when He comes or the one who rushes out to greet Him? We have much to do, and you can see just from the little work that I have done how far around the world it has gone. How much greater a work could be done if we all pulled together? I can’t even begin to imagine.
I will share with you how the finances are each month so you can know what your money is doing and how we are using it. I have shared with you these things as some brethren suggested I do so, so that you know how much it cost and how much is being sent in.
May Yahweh watch over you and keep you during these difficult years about to come upon us all.
