Shalom to The Royal Family of Yehovah,
Pray for your Family on the 7th day of Aviv
I shared this article about one month too early. I am sharing it again to remind you to pray now that you have completed your first Sabbatical year. But before we do that, I also want to remind you all about the special prayer that Ezekiel talks about on the 7th day of the first month. I am going to post this article here again for you.
L’Shanah Tovah Brethren! The New Year has now begun. The term “L’Shanah Tovah” conveys the hope for a good year rather than a happy one. May Yehovah shine His face upon you this year and give you more knowledge and more understanding of His ways and His Torah. May Yehovah grant you the Shalom you need to grow in “The Way.”
This Passover marks the anniversary of when Yehovah made the Covenant with Abraham in the 5th year of the 3rd Sabbatical Cycle in the year 2028 after Creation or 1809 B.C. That was 3,825 years ago now.
This Passover also marks the anniversary of the Exodus in the year 1379 B.C. or 2458 After Creation. That is 3395 years ago.
Some of you may be asking how I figure this is the year 5853. Well, Aviv one is the beginning of the new year. When you do the Chronology from the creation of Adam up until they entered the Promised Land you will learn that it was 2500 years. Then when you do the chronology from Solomon down to our time today you learn the rest of what is known and recorded. Gen 6:3 says there will only be 120 cycles of time for man. We explain the rest of the details in our book “Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016”. Get a copy and learn how to know for sure what year we are in and when the Sabbatical years are.
Last year I shared with you a teaching about the 7th day of the first month.
I want to emphasize this important teaching once again this year as we approach the 7th day of the First month, with the new crescent moon having been sighted in Israel.
18 So says the Lord Jehovah: In the first month, in the first of the month, you shall take a bull without blemish, a son of the herd, and cleanse the sanctuary. 19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering and put it on the doorposts of the house, and on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the gateposts of the inner court. 20 And so you shall do on the seventh of the month for each man who goes astray, and for the simple. So you shall atone for the house. (Ezekiel 45:18-20)
It is just seven days after this event until Passover, when the blood is again placed on the door of the house for protection.
We all have spouses, children, parents and family who do not and will not have anything to do with Torah. Yet it is now the Torah that has become your way of life.
Many times you wonder why they do not get it – why you are the only one. All these years and they still make fun of your Sabbaths and Holy Days.
Here in Ezekiel we are told to pray for our household on the 7th day of the first month. “Thus says Yehovah…”
Why? I do not know why – but He said to do this, so I am going to do this again this year and we will see what happens afterwards. We are often instructed to pray and obey. This time you are being told to obey by praying.
I do know that in the 7th month, on the 7th day of that month, is Shabbat Shuva- the “Sabbath of Return.” Is this a connection to that? I can only speculate, but look at the Scriptures you are to read on Shabbat Shuva (for the haf-Torah) and tell me this is not connected.
I also want you to notice what the bullocks are. We have explained this in our video teaching on Daniel 9:
Return, O Israel, unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast stumbled in thine iniquity. Take with you words, and return unto the LORD; say unto Him: ‘Forgive all iniquity, and accept that which is good; so will we render for bullocks the offering of our lips. (Hosea 14:1-2)
It is our prayers Yehovah is wanting; not the sacrifices of animals, but the sacrifices of our lips, symbolized by the bull itself.
Therefore let us go forth to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. 14 For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By Him, then, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, confessing His name. (Hebrew 13:13-15)
O Yehovah, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise. 16 For You do not desire sacrifice; or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise. (Psalm 51:15-17)
For I desired mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. (Hosea 6:6)
Look at what happened in Acts chapter 11 when they prayed:
12 And the Spirit told me to go with them, not discriminating. And these six brothers went with me, and we entered the man’s house. 13 And he declared to us how he had seen an angel in his house, who stood and said to him, Send men to Joppa and call for Simon whose last name is Peter, 14 who will tell you words by which you and all your house shall be saved. 15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16 And I remembered the Word of the Lord, how He said, John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit. 17 If God gave to them the same gift as to us, they having believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to be able to prevent God? (Acts 11:12-17)
Here we have Gentile believers receiving the Holy Spirit and the whole household was saved. Is this not what we all want for our families as well?
Yehovah has given us a specific date to meet Him; for us to plead for our families. Will you take Him up on this opportunity?
28 But Paul called out with a loud voice, saying, Do yourself no harm, for we are all here. 29 Then asking for a light he rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 And leading them outside, he said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, and your household. 32 And they spoke the Word of the Lord to him, and to all who were in his household. 33 And taking them in that hour of the night, he washed from their stripes. And he was baptized, he and all his, immediately. 34 And bringing them up to the house, he set a table before them and rejoiced, believing in God with all his household. (Acts 16:28-34)
In both of these cases it was just one person who believed and then the whole family was blessed. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around this. I cannot imagine having my whole family keeping this walk with me. How awesome would that be? I cry with joy if I think about it for too long.
If you are having trouble praying, here is one prayer that King David prayed that may help you get started:
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him I will trust. 3 Surely He will deliver you from the fowler’s trap and from the destroying plague. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall trust. His truth shall be your shield, and buckler. 5 You shall not fear the terror by night; nor because of the arrow that flies by day; 6 nor for the plague that walks in darkness, of the destruction laying waste at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes you shall look and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because You, O Jehovah, are My refuge; if You have made the Most High Your dwelling-place, 10 no evil shall befall You, nor shall any plague come near Your dwelling. 11 For He shall give His angels charge over You, to keep You in all Your ways. 12 They shall bear You up in their hands, lest You dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread on the lion and adder; the young lion and the jackal You shall trample underfoot. 14 Because He has set His love on Me, therefore I will deliver Him; I will set Him on high, because He has known My name. 15 He shall call on Me, and I will answer Him; I will be with Him in trouble; I will deliver Him, and honor Him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation. (Psalm 91:1-16)
If you keep the Commandments and are striving to walk them out; If you keep the Weekly Sabbath, the Annual Holy Days and you have just kept the Sabbatical Year (all of which are part of the 4th commandment) and if you are walking in Torah – then you are righteous. Even if you are not perfect.
If you are doing this, then you are considered one of the righteous. And if you are one of the righteous, then Yehovah will hear your prayers.
Yehovah is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29)
15 The eyes of Yehovah are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. 16 The face of Jehovah is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. 17 The righteous cry, and Jehovah hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. 18 Yehovah is near to the brokenhearted; and saves those who are of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but Yehovah delivers him out of them all. (Psalm 34:15-19)
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul. 17 I cried to Him with my mouth, and exaltation’s were under my tongue. 18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, Yehovah will not hear; 19 Surely God has heard; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. 20 Blessed is God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me. (Psalm 66:17-19)
When we do not keep the Torah, when we will not keep the Sabbath Holy nor the Holy Days, when we will not keep the Sabbatical Years… then Yehovah will not hear our prayers and it is those who will not repent that are hurt:
1 Behold, Yehovah’s hand is not shortened so that it cannot save, nor is His ear heavy so that it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have come between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, from hearing. (Isaiah 59:1-2)
Do you remember the Lord’s Prayer? The prayer Yehshua offered to Our Father? In it, we confess our sins. This is what Solomon and Daniel did in their prayers. They confessed the sins of the nation and of themselves. It is then that Yehovah will turn and hear us where we are in our affliction and save us. Go, read these things and know He waits until you repent and then He answers.
11 Let him turn aside from evil and do good. Let him seek peace and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears open to their prayers. But the Lord’s face is against those who do evil. (1 Peter 3:11-12)
We are de-leavening right now, all in preparation for the Days of Unleavened Bread. It is symbolic of putting sin out of our lives. Do not cover up your secret sins, nor walk past the obvious elephants in the room. Take care of them and address them and turn back to the truth and have your prayers heard.
He who covers his sins shall not be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves them shall have mercy. (Proverbs 28:13)
Who can understand his errors? Oh make me pure from secret faults; 13 and keep Your servant back from presumptuous sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:12-14)
Yehovah listens to those who fear Him, who stand in awe of His greatness, goodness and power. Ask Him to expose your secret sins that you do not want anyone to know about and those which you try to hide from even yourself. Get rid of them the same way you are doing now with the leaven in your homes. Get rid of it and do not bring it back in.
16 Then those fearing Yehovah spoke together, each man to his neighbor. And Yehovah listened and heard. And a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared Jehovah, and for those esteeming His name. 17 And they shall be Mine, says Yehovah of Hosts, for the day that I will make up My treasure. And I will pity them as a man has pity on his son who serves him. 18 Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God, and him who does not serve Him. (Malachi 3:16-18)
16 Confess faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much. 17 Elijah was a man of like passion as we are. And he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for the time of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to sprout. (James 5:16-18)
Our Bibles are full of examples of people who prayed and Yehovah heard their prayers and answered them. Repent of your sins and your secret sins and return to the Truth. Let your name be found in the Book of Remembrance as one whose prayers were heard and answered.
Take the time this year, at the appointed time, to pray for your family on Aviv 7, 5853. That falls on Wednesday April 5, 2017 this year.
In the mail
I have two letters I have to share with you this week. There is a third one also – Pauline Reardon, who helps me a great deal with the Facebook Sightedmoon page, was smack dab in the eye of Cyclone Debbie in Queensland this past week. We lost contact with her just as the eye was moving away from her and the roaring winds came back. She has survived and is going to give us an update we hope by next week. She is without power and the whole area is in great hardship with flooding and damaged properties. But Pauline’s home was spared, praise Yehovah.
The first one brought me to tears.
What a beautiful sight to see, what a year! Thank you so much for never giving up on those of us that were first timers, that your voice was out there always encouraging and teaching. I have learned so much and I haven’t written in a long time, but thank Yah He does look upon my heart as I did enter last year honoring all the Holy days and Sabbaths. There were mistakes sometimes as I did this alone and was learning. When I got the email from you today I cried because I know we all did something that our Father is proud of. I am very emotional today with great happiness, humility of heart and gratitude to you the voice crying in the wilderness for us all! Congratulations family, we did it! I am also sending an offering to my Father and Thanksgiving for everything He has done and who He is in my life. Thank you Joseph, you and your team keep up the good work we’re out here, we’re listening and supporting, love to all and many blessings to come!
I cannot tell you enough how much this letter meant to me today. On the first day of this New Year I got my first death threat against me and my family. It was enough for me to go to the police with it. And it caused me to wonder if anyone was listening or learning and if all that we try to do here is worth it or not. Is it worth the aggravation, abuse and of the obvious danger it places me and my family in?
So thank you Reschelle, I needed to read this.
The following was posted by Peachy Daye
At sundown today was the end of my first observance of the Sabbatical year.
I have been in the Church of God denomination since my early ’20s (I am now 61). I started way back in the Philippines with Worldwide Church of God, under Mr. Armstrong. After changes were starting to show, I decided to keep the Sabbath on my own until Global Church of God started with Mr. Adair in the Phil. I started to join this small congregation until we came to Canada. I was with Global until it separated into Global COG and Living COG. I went with the small remnant of Global until the pastor took it over as Restored COG. Sorry for all these transfers but they did happen. A small group of us did not go with Restored COG and formed a small home fellowship. This group included the late Mrs. Norte for those who know her. Our fellowship lasted almost a year until we all went different ways (physically). Then I started to attend United COG, IA. I was happy to become part of another denomination and eventually left for various reasons. I ended up with CGI until last year when I started attending Talmidei Yeshua Fellowship.
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer (stage 4 ovarian) and was given a few months to live. I was miraculously healed (I was scheduled for both chemo and radiation, which I refused). After my surgery, my CGI brethren were very loving, spending weekends with me, kids giving me cards and notes.
One weekend, my friend Joseph Dumond visited me and asked if I wanted to be anointed. I said yes and I got the anointing he has learned from observing things done in the Bible. To make a long story short, I was healed by YHWH instantly through everyone’s prayers. After my miraculous healing, I started looking at my life- being healed instantly and realized I did not deserve it. Yes, I was in all the COG denominations but I was still making a lot of mistakes. I then made an effort to try to be as perfect as our Brother, Yeshua, the Messiah. I changed the way I observed the Shabbat. I changed the way I observed the Holy Days, and for the 1st time, I kept the Sabbatical year, which just ended up a few hours ago! These changes started about a year after my thorough study of Yah’s words. I am happy with my spiritual family now. Not everyone has the exact understanding & beliefs of the Scriptures. We are not here to despise each other. We are here to practice the law of Yah, the 10 commandments, the holy days, the Sabbatical years.
HAPPY ROSH HASHANAH!
End of the Sabbatical Year-Bow Your Ear
Each year starting at the wave sheaf offering we begin to do what is called the counting of the omer. Each year I explain to you that this counting is connected to the Jubilee cycle. Last year we made a special point on the 21st day of the count. This year of 2017 matches the 22nd year that we are now going into.
This year when we get to the start of the next Sabbatical cycle we have what the Sanhedrin calls a special moment. And I agree with them.
They believed that the Jubilee began last Sukkot. I strongly do not agree but they did have a short prayer for the start of the new cycle.
Baruch Atah Adonai Elohenu Melech Ha-olam, Asher Kidshanu B’Mitsvotav, V’Tsivanu Al Sfirat Shemittim v’Yovalot.
Blessed art thou, Ruler of the Universe, who sanctifies us in his commandments, and has commanded us to count the sabbaticals and the Jubilees.
Hashana HaZot Hee Hashanna Hasnia La’Yovel Harishon v’Hashanna Hashnia LaShmitta Rishon Bayovel Harishon.
This year is the second year of the first Jubilee, and the second year for the first sabbatical in the first Jubilee.
You can read more at this link. But we are not about to begin a new Jubilee cycle as they say.
In just three weeks time from now, it will be the end of this Sabbatical year. That is, if the barley is aviv by wave sheaf day. So it could be over or it could be another 30 days. And this year we will not know for sure until wave sheaf day on March 19, 2017.
(March 29, 2017 was the official end of the Sabbatical year when the new Crescent moon was seen from Israel to begin the 1st year of the 4th Sabbatical cycle.)
So while some of you have now run out of food, and others are now eating too much as they try to eat all the leavened products they still have, you all have learned many lessons this year. Many of you tried to keep the Sabbatical year. Like a toddler learning to walk they fall down many times as they learn. You have had to learn things this Sabbatical year. Things you only learn by DOING it. As James says, blessed are those that do the law. I will show you my faith by my works, by the things I do in keeping the law.
Jas 2:17 Even so, if it does not have works, faith is dead, being by itself. 18 But someone will say, You have faith, and I have works. Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith from my works. 19 You believe that there is one God, you do well; even the demons believe and tremble. 20 But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Now that the New Year has begun and the Sabbatical year iover, I want you all to say this prayer on your own.
Shalom Yehovah, King of all Kings, King of all Creation, My Husband.
Thank you for the many things we have learned by keeping your commandments. Thank you for the revelations you give us as we walk out your Torah. Thank you for showing us how to keep the Sabbatical year which is now coming to a close. Blessed are you Yehovah for the wisdom and knowledge you show in your marvelous calendar. With the first day of the month of the aviv, the month when the barley ripens, it will be the 22nd year of this the 120th Jubilee cycle.
Thank you Yehovah for revealing these truths to us and for allowing our minds to understand them at this time. Bless you Yehovah and thank you for all that you do for us and all that you have allowed us to know. We pray you remove the veil from the eyes of our brethren so they too can keep the next Sabbatical year in 2023.
And I pray
Yehovah will continue to open your eyes to see the marvelous things from His Torah. To understand the awesome plan of Salvation which is revealed to you in the Sabbath, the Holy Days and the Sabbatical years. All of them woven together like the royal clothes worn by our High Priest. But when one of these Sabbaths is not kept or all three of them it is as if the king has no clothes. Bless these people Yehovah with the Knowledge and understanding of your Torah to depths they had never considered and give them the wisdom to know the difference between your truths and the many false teachings out there.
Protect them from the ravages of war and the pain of drought and crippling diseases that you have promised would come when we did not obey. Keep them in the center of your palm and do not forget us when you go out in fury to strike those who will not obey. Perfect us in understanding your words, have mercy on us when we struggle to understand. And prepare us to serve under King David as he reigns during the coming Millennial rest.
Each of you has now completed the Sabbatical year and the month of aviv has now begun. You are keeping the weekly Sabbath, Friday sunset to Saturday Sunset. You are keeping the Holy Days of Lev 23 and not adding any others to them. This year many of you even kept them 30 days before many others based on your understanding of when the barley must be aviv by. You are now considered righteous by Yehovah.
Jas 5:16 Confess faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much. 17 Elijah was a man of like passion as we are. And he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for the time of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to sprout.
Have any of you ever considered what is the prayer of the righteous?
Okay, how about this? Have you ever wondered if Yehovah even hears your prayers? Consider the following verses.
Pro_15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is a hateful thing to Yehovah, but the prayer of the upright is His delight.
Pro_15:29 Yehovah is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
Pro_28:9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is a hateful thing.
The prayers of the upright Yehovah hears and are a delight to Him. But the wicked, those who do not keep His laws are a hateful thing to Yehovah.
Never think you are not good enough because of this or that sin that you used to do. Rahab was a harlot and she is the ancestor of Yehshua. Ruth was a foreigner as was Caleb. I do not care if you were a biker or doper or dealer or pimp or pedophile or porn addict or prostitute or you aborted your children or you chased the gay lifestyle. Our past does not matter so long as we repent of it and keep the commandments now. Read about the servant that was forgiven much. You have been forgiven much. Now forgive others and grow in the truth.
This is the whole purpose of de-leavening your homes. It represents us deleavening our lives. It represents us as the bride washing or mikvehing before our wedding and cleansing ourselves from the dirt that we have on us. It represents the five wise virgins being ready with the extra oil.
That word Upright is;
H3477 ya?sha?r yaw-shawr’
From H3474; straight (literally or figuratively): – convenient, equity, Jasher, just, meet (-est), + pleased well right (-eous), straight, (most) upright (-ly, -ness).
Now let’s look where this word straight is being used.
Exo 15:26 And he said, If you will carefully listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, and will do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to His commandments, and keep all His Laws, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians; for I am Jehovah who heals you.
Deu 6:17 You shall carefully keep the commandments of Jehovah your God, and His testimonies, and His statutes which He has commanded you. 18 And you shall do the right and good in the sight of Jehovah, so that it may be well with you, and so that you may go in and possess the good land which Jehovah swore to your fathers, 19 to cast out all your enemies from before you, as Jehovah has spoken.
Deu 13:18 when you listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to keep all His commandments which I command you today, to do the right in the eyes of Jehovah your God.
Another scripture to keep in mind as we study this week is Psalm 119.
Psa 119:172 My tongue shall speak Your Word, for all Your Commandments are righteousness.
Righteousness is tsedek. That is doing what is moral and legal. In other words the keeping of the commandments.
H6664 tsedeq tseh’-dek
From H6663; the right (natural, moral or legal); also (abstractly) equity or (figuratively) prosperity: – X even, (X that which is altogether) just (-ice), ([un-]) right (-eous) (cause, -ly, -ness).
In Isaiah we are told more about our prayers.
Isa 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me; I am weary to bear them. 15 And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood.
Take note that those appointed feasts are not the ones Yehovah told us to keep otherwise He would have said MY FEASTS. No these are the ones we have established: New Years, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Purim, Chanukah, and all the others we go out of our way or used to go out of our way to keep and celebrate.
Yehovah did not hear our prayers at that time.
Psa 55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not Yourself from my cry.
Zec 7:11 But they refused to listen, and gave a stubborn shoulder, and made heavy their ears from hearing. 12 And they made their hearts adamant from hearing the Law and the Words which Jehovah of Hosts has sent through His Spirit, by the former prophets. And great wrath came from Jehovah of Hosts. 13 And it will be, as He called, and they did not listen, so they called, and I did not listen, says Jehovah of Hosts.
John tells us again why Yehovah does not hear our prayers. You MUST DO HIS WILL.
John 9:31 But we know that God does not hear sinners, but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.
We were warned of this very thing in Proverbs and in the very first proverb, that Yehovah would not hear us if we did not listen to His commandments.
Pro 1:23 Turn at my warning; behold, I will pour out my Spirit to you; I will make my words known to you. 24 Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention; 25 but you have despised all my advice, and would have none of my warning. 26 I also will laugh at your trouble; I will mock when your fear comes; 27 when your fear comes as a wasting away, and your ruin comes like a tempest when trouble and pain come upon you. 28 Then they shall call upon me, and I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me; 29 instead they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Jehovah. 30 They would have none of my counsel; they despised all my correction, 31 and they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own desires. 32 For the turning away of the simple kills them, and the ease of fools destroys them. 33 But whoever listens to me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
Do you understand what you have now done by completing the Sabbatical year? Along with the Holy Days and weekly Sabbath and the other commandments you have now attained a level of righteousness. Yehovah should now be listening to you and hearing your prayers. When you cast out demons they will heed your command. When you pray for Yehovah to heal the sick they will be healed. But read the very last part of verse 33 above.
shall dwell safely and be quiet from fear of evil.
You will be protected from the evil that is coming. Think about how reassuring this is. Had you not kept the weekly Sabbath, the Holy Days and the Sabbatical years, then hear what Yehovah was going to do to you, but now is going to do to others.
Isa 65:12 Therefore I will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I called and you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear and did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I did not delight.
You were numbered to be among those slaughtered by the sword. And the 4th curse of this next Sabbatical cycle is all about the coming sword Yehovah is sending.
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.
Read the other verse here in Isaiah before we move on.
Isa 65:11 But you are those who forsake Jehovah, who forget My holy mountain, who prepare a table for Fortune, and who furnish the drink offering to Fate. 12 Therefore I will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I called and you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear and did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I did not delight. 13 So the Lord Jehovah says, Behold, My servants will eat, but you will be hungry. Behold, My servants will drink, but you will be thirsty. Behold, My servants will rejoice, but you will be ashamed. 14 Behold, My servants will sing for joy of heart, but you will cry for sorrow of heart, and will howl because of a breaking of spirit. 15 And you will leave your name for a curse to My elect; for the Lord Jehovah will kill you, and call His servants by another name. 16 He who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth. And he who swears in the earth will swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hidden from My eyes.
You have now been given the power of the Holy Spirit. It dwells in you just as it did in the apostles. Be courageous and speak out. Warn the people and be courageous.
Now read and understand what Micah is saying;
Mic 3:1 And I said, Please hear, O heads of Jacob and magistrates of the house of Israel. Is it not for you to know justice? 2 You who hate the good and love the evil; who pull their skin off them, and their flesh from their bones; 3 who also eat the flesh of My people, and strip their skin off them. And they break their bones and chop them in pieces, like that in the pot, like those in the middle of the kettle. 4 Then they shall cry to Jehovah, but He will not answer them. He will even hide His face from them at that time, as they have done evil in their doings. 5 So says Jehovah concerning the prophets who make My people err, who bite with their teeth and cry, Peace! And whoever does not give for their mouth, they even sanctify a war against him. 6 Therefore a night shall be to you without vision; and darkness without divining. And the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. 7 And the seers shall be ashamed, and the diviners ashamed; yea, they shall all cover their mustache, for there is no answer from God. 8 But I am full of power by the Spirit of Jehovah, and justice, and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin. 9 Please hear this, heads of the house of Jacob, and magistrates of the house of Israel, who hate justice and pervert all equity.
This is what happens when you obey Yehovah and keep His commandments. He now hears your prayers and wants to talk with you. You now have the spirit of Elijah in you to stop up the heavens or to flood the earth. Continue to obey so that you remain righteous before Yehovah.
The Priests of Baal at Mt Carmel prayed and prayed all day long and Yehovah did not hear them. But Elijah said a short little prayer and fire came down from heaven and devoured His sacrifice in an instant.
Again read what Yehovah said to Jeremiah just before the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. and note, is it any different than what we now have today?
Jer 7:13 And now, because you have done all these works, says Yehovah, and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear; and I called you, but you did not answer; 14 therefore I will do to this house, which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh. 15 And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, the whole seed of Ephraim. 16 Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up cry nor prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you. 17 Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The sons gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger. 19 Do they vex Me? says Yehovah. Is it not themselves, to the shame of their own faces? 20 Therefore so says Yehovah God; Behold, My anger and My fury shall be poured out on this place, on man, and on animal, and on the trees of the field, and on the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be put out. 21 So says Yehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel: Put your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat flesh. 22 For I did not speak to your fathers, nor command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices. 23 But I commanded them this thing, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people; and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, so that it may be well with you. 24 But they did not listen, nor bow their ear, but walked in their own plans, in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward. 25 Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending. 26 Yet they did not listen to Me, nor bow down their ear, but hardened their neck. They did worse than their fathers. 27 So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you; you shall also call to them, but they will not answer you. 28 But you shall say to them, This is a nation which does not obey the voice of Yehovah their God, nor receives instruction; truth has perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
You, brethren have now completed the Sabbatical year. Like the Sabbath and the Holy Days, the Sabbatical year is a test. They are the sign between you and Yehovah.
Determining whether you follow the Hebrew calendar or the crescent moon & Barley being Aviv one is a test. Determining whether or not to keep the Sabbatical year, whether you are in the land or outside the land, is also a test. Those who say and said it is just for when you are in the land were tested. And have not passed that test.
Exo 20:20And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come to test you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may not sin.
Eze 20:11 And I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. 12 And also I gave them My sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am Yehovah who sets them apart.
Exo 31:13 Speak also to the sons of Israel, saying, Truly you shall keep My sabbaths. For it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I am Yehovah who sanctifies you.
Exo 31:14 You shall keep the Sabbath therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone that defiles it shall surely be put to death. For whoever does any work in it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Six days may work be done, but on the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah. Whoever does any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the sons of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever. For in six days Yehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.
You have all now kept this commandment and have heard His words to keep the Sabbatical year, the Holy days at the proper time and the weekly Sabbath. You have bowed your ear to Yehovah’s words and now He will hear your prayers.
The Jews say it is 5777, but you say it is 5853, Why?
In our book Remembering the Sabbatical years of 2016 we have this one chapter on the Jewish year as compared to the the years since the creation of Adam.
As of the new year that began with the sighting of the new crescent moon on March 29, 2017 we are in the year 5853 since the creation of Adam. It is the 1st year of the 4th Sabbatical Cycle.
Our year begins with Aviv and ends with Aviv.
Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.
But the Hebrew calendar begins and ends its years with the 1st day of the 7th Month at the Feast of Trumpets. Trouble is, there is no scripture to support this move. It is just something they have done over the past 2000 years. Before that time they used to go by the barley and the crescent moon to begin the years as we are now doing.
This next article is taken from our book and is chapter 26. I have done some editing here for this weeks article.
The Missing 76 Years
This next Abib, which coincides with the beginning of the New Year in accordance with Yehovah’s calendar, which begins in the spring of the year on March29 in the Gregorian Year of 2017, will be the year 5853 since the creation of Adam.
But the Hebrew calendar maintains it will be in the year 5777 After Creation (A.C.) at that time. Which calendar is right? Is it 5777 A.C. or is it 5853 A.C.?
In the Gospel of Matthew we uncover the answer:
(Matthew 1:7-9) Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah.
So do you see the answer? It is right up above in Matthew 1:8.
Actually, if you read between the lines, it is what is not there that is the answer. Between Joram (aka, Jehoram) and Uzziah (aka, Azariah) there are four missing kings.
Those four missing kings are Ahaziah who reigned one year in 841 B.C. Athaliah who reigned six years from 841 B.C.–835 B.C., Jehoash who reigned forty years from 835 B.C.–796 B.C. and Amaziah who reigned twenty-nine years from 796 B.C.–767 B.C.—all of which are missing from the chronology. You can get the years of their reigns from The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings by Edwin Thiele.
There are seventy-six years total when you add up the years they reigned. When you add up the years that each one actually ruled, you arrive at a seventy-six year total. Athaliah, queen consort to King Joram of Judah, and later, queen regnant of Judah, claimed the year Ahaziah died so she gets seven years according to some chronologists, and not six. As a result you get: 76 = 29 + 40 + 7
Now that I have you confused, let us drill down and see what is going on here and how it adds up.
So how is Mathew 1:8 the answer you may ask?
We read in Deuteronomy of a strange curse, but we are not shown anywhere in the Bible any evidence of it having come to pass.
(Deuteronomy 29:16-19) (for you know that we dwelt in the land of Egypt and that we came through the nations which you passed by, and you saw their abominations and their idols which were among them—wood and stone and silver and gold); so that there may not be among you man or woman or family or tribe, whose heart turns away today from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood; and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, “I shall have peace, even though I follow the dictates of my heart’—as though the drunkard could be included with the sober.
“The Lord would not spare him; for then the anger of the Lord and His jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this book would settle on him, and the Lord would blot out his name from under heaven.
Here is the key verse I want you to focus on.
(Deuteronomy 29:20)“The Lord would not spare him; for then the anger of the Lord and His jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this book would settle on him, and the Lord would blot out his name from under heaven.
What was it these kings did to anger Yehovah so much? We read in Deuteronomy 29:20 where Yehovah threatened to blot out the names of those who served other gods. Yehovah also issues a very clear warning in the Second Commandment below:
(Exodus 20:3-6) “You shall have no other gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
In case you missed it, in Exodus 20:5 it says how the sins of the fathers will be visited to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Him.
What wicked king could this be? We read in Chronicles:
(II Chronicles 24:7) For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken into the house of God, and had also presented all the dedicated things of the house of the Lord to the Baals.
Because of this blasphemy, the city of Libnah revolted against Joram.
(II Kings 8:22) Thus Edom has been in revolt against Judah’s authority to this day. And Libnah revolted at that time.
Libnah was one of the cities of the Aaronic Priests.
(Joshua 21:13) Thus to the children of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron with its common-land (a city of refuge for the slayer), Libnah with its common-land,
Obviously they objected violently to Joram’s desecration of Solomon’s temple. For Joram’s blasphemy, Yehovah judged not only his wife Athaliah, but his son Ahaziah, and grandson Jehash (Joash), and great grandson Amaziah.
(II Kings 8:24-27) So Joram rested with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of David. Then Ahaziah his son reigned in his place.
In the twelfth year of Joram the son of Ahab, king of Israel, Ahaziah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, began to reign. Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Athaliah the granddaughter of Omri, king of Israel. And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did evil in the sight of the Lord, like the house of Ahab, for he was the son-in-law of the house of Ahab.
That was the life of Joram who was then replaced by his son Ahaziah. Ahaziah was 22 years old and only reigned for one year. Those years are from 842 to 841 BC. Then in 2 Kings 11 we read about the time when Ahaziah died and what then took place.
(II Kings 11:1-3) When Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal heirs. But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him away from among the king’s sons who were being murdered; and they hid him and his nurse in the bedroom, from Athaliah, so that he was not killed. So he was hidden with her in the house of the Lord for six years, while Athaliah reigned over the land.
I am going to include this whole story here for you to read, as it is essential to obtaining a deeper and more complete understanding.
(II Kings 11:4-8) In the seventh year Jehoiada sent and brought the captains of hundreds—of the bodyguards and the escorts—and brought them into the house of the Lord to him. And he made a covenant with them and took an oath from them in the house of the Lord, and showed them the king’s son. Then he commanded them, saying, “This is what you shall do: One-third of you who come on duty on the Sabbath shall be keeping watch over the king’s house, one-third shall be at the gate of Sur, and one-third at the gate behind the escorts. You shall keep the watch of the house, lest it be broken down. The two contingents of you who go off duty on the Sabbath shall keep the watch of the house of the Lord for the king. But you shall surround the king on all sides, every man with his weapons in his hand; and whoever comes within range, let him be put to death. You are to be with the king as he goes out and as he comes in.”
(II Kings 11:9-12) So the captains of the hundreds did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded. Each of them took his men who were to be on duty on the Sabbath, with those who were going off duty on the Sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest. And the priest gave the captains of hundreds the spears and shields which had belonged to King David, that were in the temple of the Lord. Then the escorts stood, every man with his weapons in his hand, all around the king, from the right side of the temple to the left side of the temple, by the altar and the house. And he brought out the king’s son, put the crown on him, and gave him the Testimony; they made him king and anointed him, and they clapped their hands and said, “Long live the king!”
This is the same expression we use today when the King is coronated. If you listen to the recordings of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, they all shout, “Long live the Queen.”
(II Kings 11:13-14) Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the escorts and the people, she came to the people in the temple of the Lord. When she looked, there was the king standing by a pillar according to custom; and the leaders and the trumpeters were by the king. All the people of the land were rejoicing and blowing trumpets. So Athaliah tore her clothes and cried out, “Treason! Treason!”
It is this very same column that today is found under the Throne of the Kings of Britain when they are anointed.
The Stone of Scone Scottish Gaelic: An Lia Fàil) … also known as the Stone of Destiny and often referred to in England as The Coronation Stone.
(II Kings 11:15-21) And Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of the hundreds, the officers of the army, and said to them, “Take her outside under guard, and slay with the sword whoever follows her.” For the priest had said, “Do not let her be killed in the house of the Lord.” So they seized her; and she went by way of the horses’ entrance into the king’s house, and there she was killed.
Then Jehoiada made a covenant between the Lord, the king, and the people, that they should be the Lord’s people, and also between the king and the people. And all the people of the land went to the temple of Baal, and tore it down. They thoroughly broke in pieces its altars and images, and killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. And the priest appointed officers over the house of the Lord. Then he took the captains of hundreds, the bodyguards, the escorts, and all the people of the land; and they brought the king down from the house of the Lord, and went by way of the gate of the escorts to the king’s house. Then he sat on the throne of the kings. So all the people of the land rejoiced; and the city was quiet, for they had slain Athaliah with the sword in the king’s house. Jehoash was seven years old when he became king.
Right now we have the reign of Ahaziah for 1 year and then that of his mother for 6 years or as some do they say she was 7 years not counting her son Azaziah’s one year reign.
We now read how this Joash reigned for 40 years.
2 Chronicles 24:1 Joash was seven years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Zibiah of Beersheba.
(II Kings 14:1-2) In the second year of Joash the son of Jehoahaz, king of Israel, Amaziah the son of Joash, king of Judah, became king. He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
(II Kings 14:19-21) And they formed a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish and killed him there. Then they brought him on horses, and he was buried at Jerusalem with his fathers in the City of David.
We now have Ahazariah for 1 year
Athaliah for 6 years
Joash for 40 years
Amaziah for 29 years
Amaziah had a son and his name was Azariah.
2 Kings 15:1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariah the son of Amaziah, king of Judah, became king. He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem.
This Azaryah was also called Uzziah in II Kings 15:13 and is the very same Ozias of Matthew 1:8.
Today, the calculated Hebrew calendar has the year to be 5777 A.C. starting with the onset of Rosh Hashanah in 2016. If we tack these 76 missing years onto this, we end up with a total of 5,853, which is exactly what the Sabbatical and Jubilee Years show us. But because Hebrew calendar starts at the seventh month and Yehovah’s timetable begins in the spring on Abib, for six months we are 76 1/2 years off. In Aviv of 2017 the year will be 5853 since the creation of Adam.
This should explain the difference between the Jewish years of 5777 and why the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are 76 years further advanced.
Ezekiel 33:1-10Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
“Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: ‘Thus you say, “If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?” ’ Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’
Today there are many people claiming to speak as the watchman for god. Yes small g, because the god they serve is not Yehovah.
Stop and think for a moment like Satan. If people know who the watchmen are then they would learn to heed their warnings. So in order to cause the people not to listen to the watchman set up by Yehovah, Satan will send out many other watchmen all of whom claim to be THE watchman, and all of them making the most absurd and ridiculous claims.
In the end no one would listen to anyone that Yehovah would set up and designate as His Watchman. Satan would then win. He could launch his attack or end time deception and no one would pay attention to those warning of these deceptions.
Satan could also set up his watchmen to all say a similar thing leading the people away from Yehovah. The people would become so entrenched in this false doctrine that they would not listen to the truth when they heard it. Calling those who tell them to repent, all sorts of names.
As long as the people do not obey Yehovah then Satan wins no matter what lies he puts out there.
We are even shown this would happen in the Parable of the wedding invitation.
Mat 22:1-14 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.” ’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Many today are not willing to come to the wedding as we are shown in verse 3. And in verse 5 the people joke about the invitation, make fun of and inslut those inviting them and then murdered them.
They say things like we have been hearing this sort of crap for the past 2000 years and the world is still here and Jesus has not returned. Get lost.
There has been in recent years the 1844 disappointment by the Millerites; The Great Disappointment in the Millerite movement was the reaction that followed Baptist preacher William Miller’s proclamations that Jesus Christ would return to the Earth in 1844, what he called the Advent. His study of the Daniel 8 prophecy during the Second Great Awakening led him to the conclusion that Daniel’s “cleansing of the sanctuary” was cleansing of the world from sin when Christ would come, and he and many others prepared, but October 22, 1844 came and they were disappointed. However, it paved the way for the Adventists who formed the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. They contended that what had happened on October 22 was not Jesus’ return, as Miller had thought, but the start of Jesus’ final work of atonement, the cleansing in the heavenly sanctuary, leading up to the Second Coming
The World Wide Church of God in 1975; The events described were to begin shortly after February 1972, and climax during 1975. Armstrong stated that his church was operating on two 19-year cycles. The second cycle began after January 7, 1953, when The World Tomorrow was first broadcast over Radio Luxembourg, meaning that the second cycle would end around the beginning of February 1972. The article was written during the cold war years when Nuclear attacks were threatened and expected at any moment.
Then we had the Y2K end of the world scenario.
The date was Dec. 31, 1999. As the clock ticked down to the New Year, the world braced itself for the impending apocalypse. Up to this point, computers processed dates in two digits (i.e. 1980 = 80), so 2000 would become 00, the same unit as 1900. When the clock struck midnight, computers would fail, networks would crash and the world would plunge into chaos.
Or so they said.
The government spent billions to exterminate the Millennial Bug, insurance companies sold Y2K plans, and alarmists stockpiled canned goods in anticipation of a world without electricity, heat, or running water. Then the clock struck midnight and…nothing happened.
In 2011 we had the Harold Camping predictions that gained world attention.
Harold Egbert Camping (July 19, 1921 – December 15, 2013) was an American Christian radio broadcaster, author and evangelist. Beginning in 1958, he served as president of Family Radio, a California-based radio station group that broadcasts to more than 150 markets in the United States. In October 2011, he retired from active broadcasting following a stroke, but still maintained a role at Family Radio until his death. Camping is notable for issuing multiple failed predictions of dates for the End Times, which temporarily gained him a global following and millions of dollars of donations.
Camping predicted that Jesus Christ would return to Earth on May 21, 2011, whereupon the saved would be taken up to heaven in the rapture, and that there would follow five months of fire, brimstone and plagues on Earth, with millions of people dying each day, culminating on October 21, 2011, with the final destruction of the world. He had previously predicted that Judgment Day would occur on or about September 6, 1994.
His prediction for May 21, 2011, was widely reported, in part because of a large-scale publicity campaign by Family Radio, and it prompted ridicule from atheist organizations and rebuttals from Christian organizations. After May 21 passed without the predicted incidents, Camping said he believed that a “spiritual” judgment had occurred on that date, and that the physical Rapture would occur on October 21, 2011, simultaneously with the final destruction of the universe by God. Except for one press appearance on May 23, 2011, Camping largely avoided press interviews after May 21, particularly after he suffered a stroke in June 2011. After October 21, 2011 passed without the predicted apocalypse, the mainstream media labeled Camping a “false prophet” and commented that his ministry would collapse after the “failed ‘Doomsday’ prediction”.
Camping was reported to have retired from his position at Family Radio on October 16, 2011, only days before his last predicted date for the end of the world. However, his daughter later clarified that he had not retired outright, but was maintaining a role at Family Radio while working from home. Camping admitted in a private interview that he no longer believed that anybody could know the time of the Rapture or the end of the world, in stark contrast to his previously staunch position on the subject. In March 2012, he stated that his attempt to predict a date was “sinful”, and that his critics had been right in emphasizing the words of Matthew 24:36: “of that day and hour knoweth no man”. He added that he was now searching the Bible “even more fervently…not to find dates, but to be more faithful in [his] understanding.” After the failure of Camping’s prophecies, Family Radio suffered a significant loss of assets, staff and revenue.
The Mayan Calendar December 21 2012;
The 2012 phenomenon was a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or otherwise transformative events would occur on or around 21 December 2012. This date was regarded as the end-date of a 5,126-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar
Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae were proposed as pertaining to this date. A New Age interpretation held that the date marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants would undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 21 December 2012 would mark the beginning of a new era. Nothing happened.
We then had many for years saying the world was coming to an end due to Global warming or Environmental Issues. This has morphed into the UNEP and today is known as the Paris Treaty which has 192 nations of the world all signed on to this agreement.
This week by chance I found this News letter from Feb 2013. In this News Letter I take on the many Messianic Teachers who were then and still are today teaching the brethren about the Daniel Timeline lie. You bet your britches I heard from them and they surely did not mince their words.

Last year I learned just how entrenched many of you are in the keeping of Passover on the wrong day. So this year I want to get the jump on this and give you time to think this out and be obedient to Yehovah and Keep Passover at the right time. Not according to me but according to both the Torah and those who also kept it with Yehshua. Is Passover on the 13th or 14th or 15th? And how do we prove it?
But before we discuss this subject I am once again going off on the Daniel Timeline.
One School says that the Altar on the Temple Mount must be set up on Purim 2013, which is February 23, 2013.
Another school says that we are going to flee into the Wilderness on Purim February 23, 2013.
Then 3 1/2 years later in 2017 the Messiah is going to come.
And somehow both schools tie into this Daniel timeline teaching Chanukah as well to give it even more justification.
And then there are the Christian Groups who are now watching us like they were watching those who were promoting the Mayan Calendar and then those of Harold Camping group who were to be raptured out. Last Oct 21 and May 21, 2011. They watch us and will conclude we do not know anything either because of this erroneous teaching known as the Daniel Timeline.
Neither of these two holidays (Purim and Chanukah) were kept by any Kings of Israel nor by any Prophets found in the Bible, yet both Purim and Chanukah are supposed to be important dates in the Daniel timeline and then the last 3 1/2 years. According to many of your leading teachers.
Well, I am sounding off on this again warning you all not to get involved with it and be deceived by it. And to add more weight to this notion doesn’t the Pope just up and quit this past week. Bringing on the infamous prophecy of someone who does not keep Torah nor the Sabbath nor the Holy Days nor the Sabbatical years, yet many of you judging by the emails I get do believe what this pagan apostate says. (Apostate-one that leads you away from the Truth of Torah),
So with this information I am going to state some facts. You may not like it, but whats new. Those of you who are supposed to be leading are in fact misleading those who are in your charge. Because you do not keep the Sabbatical years you do not understand prophecy. And as such you invent and ADD to Torah holidays which we are commanded not to add to. Lev 23 tells us which ones to keep and how to keep them. Lev 23 does not tell us how to keep Purim or Chanukah yet many of you insist on keeping them and now insist on adding them to your invented prophecies, which will lead people away from Yehovah and to their deaths.
Because you do not and will not keep the Sabbatical and Jubilee years you are prevented from understanding the truth of prophecy and the timing of Yehovah’s clock. Yet you all claim that 2017 is the Jubilee year when the Messiah is to come. Yet not one of you is teaching any of those who follow you that 2016 would be the 49th year and a Sabbatical year and one that they should keep. Even though you have the wrong understanding; yet with the erroneous understanding that you do have, you still will not keep the Sabbatical year that you do admit to. What a shame and what a pity. Ignorance is bliss and runs amuck.
The great falling away is going to be the result.
If you do not understand the Sabbatical years or when they are then you are just another ignorant bible thumper. If you do not know the reason we need to keep them and what happens when we do not keep them, then you have no clue about bible prophecy and are guessing at best. At best. And all of those who promote the Daniel Timeline Lie and keep Purim and Chanukah have no clue about the Sabbatical years. If you did then you would not be mixing your seeds of the truth of torah and lev 23 and 25 with those things invented and added by men which only confuse the truth with lies.
Either you accept Torah and Yehshua or you reject both the Torah and Yehshua, listen to Yehshua’s own instruction:
“For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me. But if you don’t believe his writings (the Torah), how will you believe My words?” John 5:46-47
OK I think by now you know which side I am on. But I have much more to say and I do inside this News Letter.

Now that link will lead you to our old site which is still up and running and teaching new people all the time. In fact it has now reached 2,562,794 people around the world since we first set it up in 2011 to replace our first web site.
So today I am seeing many Christian “Watchmen” on the wall. Men and women who have no clue about the things they are talking about.
They all claim the laws of that old testament are nailed to the tree and that they are no longer bound by them. And then they go on to tell us that on the Jewish this or that Jewish Feast day their words from god will happen. The Rapture is about to take place on this or that date.
1. Rapture doctrine is one of the most recent “new doctrines” in the history of the Church. The only doctrine more recent is the invention of the sinner’s prayer for salvation by Billy Sunday in 1930, which was made popular by Billy Graham in 1935.
2. The fact that John Nelson Darby invented the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine around 1830 AD is unquestionably true. All attempts to find evidence of this wild doctrine before 1830 have failed, with a single exception: Morgan Edwards wrote a short essay as a college paper for Bristol Baptist College in Bristol England in 1744 where he confused the second coming with the first resurrection of Revelation 20 and described a “pre-tribulation” rapture. However Edwards ideas, which he admitted were brand new and never before taught, had no influence in the modern population of the false doctrine. That prize to goes to Darby.
3. Prior to 1830, no church taught it in their creed, catechism or statement of faith.
4. Darby has had a profound impact on religion today, since Darby’s “secret rapture” false doctrine has infected most conservative, evangelical churches. While the official creeds and statements of faith of many churches either reject or are silent about Rapture, neither do they openly condemn this doctrine of a demon from the pulpit.
5. While not all dis-pensationalists believe in the Rapture. All those who teach the Rapture also believe in pre-millennialism. Both groups use Israel’s modern statehood status of 1948 to be a beginning of a countdown to the end.
6. All premillennialists, rapturists and dispensationalists alive today believe the Bible reveals the general era of when Christ will return. The date setters of the 1800’s (Seventh-day Adventists who are date setting premillennialists who reject the rapture, Jehovah’s Witnesses who have set many dates) based their predictions upon speculative arrangements of numbers and chronologies in the Bible. Today’s date setters without exception wrongly believe that Israel gaining state hood in 1948 fulfilled Bible prophecy and that Christ would return within one generation.
7. There are two kinds of premillennialists: Those “Date setters” and “Date Teasers”. “Date setters”, set specific dates which are in fact a countdown clock to the extinction of their own ministries. (William Miller, Charles Russell, Ronald Weinland, Harold Camping, etc.) “Date teasers”, share the same rhetoric of urgency that the “end is very soon”, but refuse to lock into a specific date. (Jack Van Impe, Hal Lindsay, Tim LaHaye, Pentecostals, Baptists, Grant Jefferies, Christadelphians.)
8. Most of the TV preachers who promote rapture and/or “date set” all wrongly believe they are a prophet of God with special illumination. Pentecostals believe they are inspired directly from the Holy Spirit as modern day prophets. Baptists believe they are illuminated with guidance from the Holy Spirit through the Calvinist doctrine of Irresistible grace.
Today we have brethren and christians alike combining all sorts of things together as they guess at the end times. We also have other Christians who will not listen to anyone but themselves and repeatedly quote the scripture in
Mat 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
There are people out there now saying that 2017 is the Jubilee year. In this Jubilee year the start of the Tribulation begins. The Messianic leaders have said this repeatedly each year since 2013, trying to get the Daniel Timeline to fit somehow. They are now adding to this false teaching from the Daniel timeline the fact that Revelation 12 is going to have multiple signs in it this Sept. The moon below her feet and the planets all in conjunction.
Now Christian teachers have swallowed this lie and they too are now jumping on board with the Rapture coming this Sept 23, 2017.
Here watch this very popular teaching that is going viral.
Brethren I have run the program on my own computer and it does happen on Sept 23, 2017.
According to the Hebrew Calendar The Feast of Trumpets in on Sept 21 and Sept 22. As we have told you many times before, this is the feast in which you cannot know the Day or the hour, and because of that even the Jews keep it for two days just in case.
So the claim by the presenter above is out of zinc with the rabbinic calendar. So have the christians now switched to using the crescent moon calendar to guess at prophecy?
We have also shown you repeatedly that the Jubilee has nothing to do with the Balfour Declaration of 1917, nor the Six Day war in 1967 nor with 2017 as what many are calling the Jubilee year. History proves that the last Jubilee year was 1996 and the next one is 2045. 2nd Kings 19:29 also proves this fact.
As we share with you above the rapture is a 18th century invention and is not to be believed in. Not the pre trib, mid-trib. or post trib. The left behind teaching is a joke.
To presume that you can rebel and disobey Yehovah, and then be brought into His Kingdom where those laws will be in place that you said were done away with is laughable except it is no laughing matter.
Not understanding the meaning of the Holy Days leaves these people in a dangerous position. Understanding the Holy Days as many Messianics are supposed to, and to then mix in with them these outside teachings is heresy.
To presume the Jews are going to be wiped out at the same time you christians go up to heaven is naive and ignorant at best. It is so very very sad to see it repeated by so many who have no clue.
Still other Christians look at the year 5777 and assume the three 7’s are telling them this year of 2017 is the year of the rapture. They do not know how to determine what year this truly is. But you do!
So why do get so upset when I see things like this. People just guessing but they will not obey.
It is because of Paul warned us about. Take note of a warning given by Paul to the Thessalonians, speaking about the end of this age. He writes,
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first” (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
He then proceeds to explain this “falling away” in greater detail.
Paul writes that it will involve the revealing of the man of sin.
and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-5).
Some man is going to style himself as greater than Yehovah, pretending to be Yehovah—and people will believe him. Why? Because:
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11).
The “man of sin” posing as god will be performing supernatural acts with the help of the devil, deceiving all those who have rejected Yehovah and whom would not obey the commandments of Yehovah and putting himself in a position to be worshipped by the world.
Yehovah gives these people over to a strong delusion. He does this to them because they did not have a love of the truth.
Are any of you in that category? Do you love the teachings of the illuminati, or is your focus on chem trails and vaccines? Are you yearning for the next secret thing to be revealed by the conjunction of the planets? Are you mixing the things you were taught in your former denomination with the Torah? Or are you one who simply loves Yehovah’s word and study it week in and week out?
Your answer to each of these questions above will tell you whether or not you are headed for this strong delusion in which you will be deceived by Satan or whether you will be protected and sheltered by Yehovah.
