LORD GOD of ISRAEL,
"I will declare thy name unto my brethren:
in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob,
glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel."
Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say,
The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel
out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them;
and they shall dwell in their own land.
<> And God said moreover unto Moses, <>
Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel,
the LORD God of your fathers,
<>the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,<>
hath sent me unto you:
<>this is my name for ever,<>
<>and this is my memorial unto all generations. <>
Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen,
which ye have profaned in the midst of them;
and the heathen shall know
that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD,
when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again
the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left,
from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush,
and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from
the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations,
and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together
the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said,
The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north,
and from all the lands whither he had driven them:
and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”

“Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
and thy law is the truth. Thou art near, O LORD;
and all thy commandments are truth Concerning thy testimonies,
I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
Thy word is true from the beginning:
and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”
“Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger,
as for one of your own country:
for I am the LORD your God.”
“For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them,
as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments
so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?”
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,
and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”
“The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake;
he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.”
“Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments,
which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might
do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God,
to keep all his statutes and his commandments,
which I command thee, thou, and thy sons and thy son’s son,
all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
Hear therefore, Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee,
and that ye may increase mightily,
as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee,
in the land that floweth with milk and honey.”

God is a refuge for us. Selah."

Tribute to the New Moon Revised:
The service of this solar/lunar calendar of TORAH READINGS is by definition using the “LIGHTS” of the sun and moon, according to Genesis 1:14, to number the “days” of each month. And the dark phases of the moon cooperatively and conveniently provide a break between the months. If there were no dark phases of the moon, we would have a tough time determining when one month ended and when another would begin. Hence, because the Commandment is to use the “Lights” in the Heavens for “Signs” for seasons, days, and years, the New Moon Crescent is what provides us with our first lights of each new month and these lights continue waxing and waning until they are diminished to the dark phases. And then in two to three days, the New Moon Crescent reappears again starting the First Day of another new month.
Realizing that even some Israelites use the dark phase of the moon to call the new month, I would like to add one obvious fact. By definition, there can only be a “New Moon,” per se, after the dark phase interval and when the New Moon Crescent reappears, thus, we understand the concept of having a “New” moon.
If the dark phase of the moon begins the First Day of the month, then when the New Moon Crescent is “Sighted” that could approximately be as far into the month as the Fourth Day, i.e., the appearance of the “Light” in the Heavens could possibly fall on the Fourth Day. It makes no sense to start to count the first dark phase of the moon as being the First Day of the month, as this process disregards the use of the “Light” in the Heavens to determine our “days,” as we are Commanded to do in Genesis 1:14. Consider what King David said in I Samuel 20:24: “…when the New Moon was come…” He had to be speaking about the New Moon Crescent, as we are unable to “Sight” the appearance of the dark phase or rather see it “come.”
It’s the absence of seeing the moon for forty-eight or more hours that enables us to identify the approaching Crescent “Sign” in the Heavens (mentioned in Genesis 1:14) that recognizes the moon as being “New.” And upon “Sighting” this “New” Crescent” we distinguish it as being the “New Moon” and the time of the New Month, as well.
PLEASE NOTE: The Hebrew New Year is also determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens and not by the “sighting of barley,” as some Black Hebrew Israelites and European “Jews” advocate.
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make,
shall remain before me, saith the LORD,
so shall your seed and your name remain.
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another,
and from one sabbath to another,
shall all flesh come to worship before me,
saith the LORD.”
<<<PLEASE TAKE PART IN THE NEW MOON WATCH>>>
<<<For The First Day of the “HEBREW” Month>>>
And if it’s not the evening of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of
COMPLETE REST or other Holy Day,
please report your evidence (day, date, and time) to:
START THE NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF
<<<JANUARY 15,16,17, 2010>>>
BY LOOKING IN THE “WEST” JUST ABOVE THE HORIZON.
“He appointed the moon for seasons…”
The first “Sign” in the Heavens to provide the start of days, years and “seasons” can only begin with the “Sighting” of the New Moon Crescent - that which we can “see” in order for it to serve as a “Sign” and enable us to begin counting our days and months. Just imagine not being able to “see” the moon at all. How then could it be appointed for a “Sign” or for “seasons”?
“The natural thought might be that the moon is like a living being. It is born, grows, reaches maximum size, then fades and dies, going through all these stages in one month. Even today, we still talk of the thin crescent in the western sky as a new moon and the thin crescent in the eastern sky a month later as the old moon. Half way between is the full moon. As I explained earlier, this cycle of phases of the moon established the month as a unit of time, and the first calendars were based on this.” ISAAC ASIMOV’S GUIDE TO EARTH AND SPACE, pages 79 and 80
In that the King of Israel is supposed to be a “Righteous Judge” (II Chronicles 1:11), it stands to reason that he is also supposed to be a “Righteous Role Model.” Thus, if the King that GOD appoints over Israel observes a “feast” on the day of the New Moon, then wisdom tells the Nation of Israel to do likewise. King Saul and the anointed David observed this service (I Samuel 20th Chapter).
To their and our hurt our forefathers worshipped all manner of symbols: the sun, moon, stars, and images of gold and silver. To observe the “Sign” in the heavens as being the New Moon “Sighting” is NOT worshipping the moon, but rather it is doing as we are COMMANDED in Genesis 1:14:
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”
Some people feel that the moon has no “light,” but according to GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets, it most certainly does: Isaiah 13:10; Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 31:35; Ezekiel 32:7.
“Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
“Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed,
on our solemn feast day.
“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.”
Psalm 81:1 – 4
(A Psalm of Asaph, the Seer –
one who should be well informed about GOD’s Ways)
“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings,
and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.”
Contrary to the belief of some Israelites, the moon does indeed shine! Even if the Moon shines with the aid of the sun, i.e., reflects the light of the sun, IT STILL SHINES! And the fact that Scripture attests to this fact, is what’s important: Isaiah 60:19; Jeremiah 31:35; and Ezekiel 32:7. Therefore, Genesis 1:14 is proof enough that we must use the shining New Moon Crescents as “…SIGNS, AND FOR SEASONS, AND FOR DAYS, AND FOR YEARS:”
Some Israelites, along with White Jews, use the dark phase of the moon to determine the start of a new month. If the dark phase of the moon lasts for “2-3 days,” then which of these days is supposed to be the distinguishing “Sign” that determines the First Day of the month? Or do we just arbitrarily select either/or depending on the imaginations of our hearts?
On the contrary, with the use of the sighted “Sign” of the New Moon Crescent in the Heavens we eliminate any confusion as to which day IS the First Day of the month.
“So David hid himself in the field: and WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME, the king sat him down to eat meat.” I Samuel 20:24
At the time of the dark phases of the moon (generally 2-3 days), as previously written, there is no “moon” in SIGHT. Therefore, I Samuel 20:24 sheds more light on Genesis 1:14. “WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME,” is clearly telling readers that this is a reference to a visible “Moon Crescent Sighting” - the light in the firmament…i.e., the “Sign” for (lunar) days. Thus, if we are to count all the lunar days (29.5) in a month, it only makes sense to start counting from the New Moon Crescent “when the New Moon was come” and NOT from the dark phases at the end of the month, which do not emit any “sign” or “light” in the heavens.
The only problem that presents itself when using the “New Moon Sighting” to call the First Day of the month is cloud coverage, as this prevents the ability to see the New Moon Crescent. Nonetheless, when “Sighted,” one can easily distinguish the New Moon Crescent from all the other phases due to its thin sliver and its low position in the heavens. And the reason is that no two days or rather phases of the visible moon are alike. Hence, to use the New Moon Crescent as the “Sign” in the heavens, as we are COMMANDED to do for our seasons, days, and years, negates the belief that the “commandment was given to the luminaries.” The “luminaries” fulfill GOD’s Commandments: the sun shines and the moon orbits the Earth. They have no need to determine seasons, days, and years. Hence, our New Moons are obviously of more spiritual significance to the Nation of Israel than we are aware. And for sure, the TRUTH concerning them are in GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets/Seers - not the White Jews or other Gentiles. All we need do is use wisdom, discern what’s written in Scripture, accept it, and act accordingly!
“Then Solomon offered burnt offerings unto the LORD on the altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,
“Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.” II Chronicles 8:12,13
Unless there is an emergency, please try not to buy or sell on this day. Conduct all financial and business transactions prior to the day of the New Moon. Interesting enough, II Kings 4:23,24 constitutes the New Moon as being a day to seek “the man of God.” Although the New Moon is NOT a Day of Rest, Our GOD did set it aside for recognition:
“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.” Psalm 81:3
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 66:23
“…When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn?…” Amos 8:5
Probably, the Scripture that most determines and clarifies the fact that our New Moons are Feast Days is Ezekiel 45:17:
“And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the NEW MOONS, and in the Sabbaths, in ALL SOLEMNITIES of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the HOUSE OF ISRAEL.” (Caps. are mine.)
Unequivocally, our New Moons are included in these “SOLEMNITIES” mentioned in Ezekiel 45:17.
“Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the Sabbaths [Feasts – NOT 7th Day Sabbaths*] and in the NEW MOONS.” Ezekiel 46:3 (Brackets are mine.)
Thereby, this verse justifies the First Day of each month being our “Feast” Day. It should be realized that the Feast Days that Our GOD selected (Leviticus 23rd Chapter) are “Holy Convocations,” i.e., on these days we cannot do any work. However, because King Saul observed the New Moon as a Feast Day, we have every reason to do so, as well. We also have learned that our forefathers traveled to the Temple to worship the Holy ONE on the New Moon (II Kings 4:23; Ezekiel 45:17; and Ezekiel 46:1), and when HE has HIS Temple rebuilt, then we will again be able to resume this service and worship.
When we return to our heritage and worship YIHOVAH according to HIS Ways, then we can establish our own “Calendar of the Universe,” whereby, the days of the New Moon and all GOD’s Holy Days will be recognized by the whole entire World. And I am sure that it will be the desire of the Righteous Remnant and ALL the world to make a Feast to the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel every First Day of the Month.
ALSO, I believe that if Lot (Genesis 19:3) and Abraham (Genesis 21:8) can proclaim “Feasts,” then there is no stipulation for NOT establishing Feast Days, as we so desire. Therefore, to proclaim a feast to EXALT the Holy ONE of Israel on the First Day of each month is quite acceptable - given the Scripture (above) regarding worshipping Our LORD GOD of ISRAEL, Our SAVIOR, on the New Moons. We should know that throughout the Tanakh Hebrew Israelites called for “feasts” for various occasions. Therefore, we are within our rights to observe a Feast every New Moon to Our GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel. And those of us who love this WONDERFUL GOD and who choose HIM to EXALT HIM for being the ONLY LORD and SAVIOR can be at liberty to use the day of the New Moon to show forth HIS PRAISE in a “feast” and worship HIM in Jerusalem FOREVER.
“And Solomon awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and [he] made a feast to all his servants.”
I Kings 3:15
*Leviticus 23:24,39 (Sabbaths of Feasts)
A Tribute to GOD’s “HOLY” Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST - HIS WEEKLY ANNIVERSARY OBSERVANCE and SIGN between HIM and Israelites for HIS CREATION of the Heavens and the Earth:
“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,
to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:
for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth,
and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”
Since we know for a fact that GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath is a “Sign” between HIM and Israel, why take any chance to profane it? Every passage about the Holy Sabbath of COMPLETE Rest stands strong in support of GOD’s Commandment to abide in our places on the Seventh Day (Exodus 16:29) – ever last one of them – including the passage in Jeremiah where we are Commanded to “Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;” Jeremiah 17:21 (Please read verses 21 to 27.)
Perhaps the wise thing to do would be to define the word “burden.” But more importantly, we need to determine whether or not Exodus 16:29 is a Commandment or not. And if it is determined to be one, then we should Fear the GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE has Commanded of us.
“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power
and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship,
and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law,
and the commandment, which he wrote for you,
he shall observe to do for ever more;
and ye shall not fear other gods.”
II Kings 17:36,37
Why must we debate that which is clearly written for us to do and for very good reason, if we will only consider and think about it? The Holy ONE wants us to be first to observe HIS weekly Anniversary of Creation, which is to keep HIS Holy Seventh day at REST, as HE did, in order that we might be REFRESHED!
“REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY”
“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” Exodus 16:29
“And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.
“Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.” Exodus 35:1,2
“Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation [“HOLY DAY”]; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.” Leviticus 23:3
“Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.” Exodus 31:15 - 17
“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” Genesis 2:2,3
Significantly, in the beginning when the Holy ONE of Israel established this Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST and when HE clearly COMMANDED the Children of Israel in the Wilderness to observe this Holy Day, HE MADE NO EXCEPTIONS!
If “ALL” GOD’s COMMANDMENTS are sure, then for sure, we must give credence to Exodus 16:29 and abide in our places on GOD’s HOLY Seventh Day of Complete REST as we are COMMANDED TO DO!
“He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.” Psalm 111:7
GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST is not only one of HIS Greatest WORKS of all time, but this Holy Day is an extraordinary “SIGN” between this Most High GOD, the CREATOR and HIS Chosen People, the Children of Israel! This Seventh Day also marks the Anniversary of GOD ending the Creations of the Heavens, Earth, man, and all that is therein.
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” Genesis 2:1 - 3
“And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” Exodus 16:23,29
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.” Exodus 24:12
“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should DO SO IN THE LAND whither ye go to possess it.” Deuteronomy 4:5 (Caps. are mine.)
CONSIDER ALSO the fact that the CREATOR GOD of Israel only Commanded that we go to Jerusalem “THREE TIMES in the year”. Had the Holy ONE wanted us to travel to Jerusalem on HIS Holy Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST, HE would have Commanded that, as well. Thus, given Exodus 16:29, we have to realize, understand, and accept the fact that it was never HIS intention for us to travel and/or leave our places on HIS most Holy Seventh Day.
“Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:) And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.” Exodus 23:14 - 17
“Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast” Deuteronomy 16:16
There is no Scripture indicating that Israelites traveled to Jerusalem on GOD’s HALLOWED SEVENTH DAY.
THE PLACE THAT OUR GOD OF ISRAEL CHOSE IS THE HOLY CITY JERUSALEM.
The Israelite Way of Life was set in stone in the Wilderness, as to how we are Commanded to prepare to live according to ALL GOD’s LAW, as well as for HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, i.e., how we are supposed to keep it, as well as the consequences for profaning it. And there are no exceptions.
CONCERNING “HOLY CONVOCATION”
The issue stemming from the meaning of “Holy Convocation” written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter is real, and the interpretation is grossly misunderstood. “Holy Convocation” does not mean “To Gather.” And the sin committed by traveling and gathering on the CREATOR’s Holy Sabbath of Complete REST has grave consequences (Exodus 31:12 - 18).
Conclusive evidence that “holy convocation” DOES NOT mean to assemble is provided in the passage on Passover. In Exodus 12:16 we are told that Passover is a “holy convocation” but yet, we are Commanded to observe this High Holy Day with our immediate families and only to join with another family if one’s members are too few for the lamb (Exodus 12:4). This proves without a doubt that “holy convocation” cannot mean to assemble, but rather to keep the holy days “HOLY.” Some call attention to the fact that because Israelites were Commanded to ”…turn in the morning and go into their tents” (Deuteronomy 16:5-7) that this is proof of an assembly. Those Israelite families that joined with others are the ones GOD Commanded to return to their tents.
The Holy ONE of Israel DOES NOT contradict HIMSELF! HE would not COMMAND us to “Rest” on the Sabbath Day of Rest and also Command us to “abide ye every man in your place on the seventh day,” and then confuse us by telling us to “assemble” on the “rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD.” This would make absolutely no sense whatsoever. Therefore, if the Holy ONE of Israel said don’t bear a burden on the Sabbath Day of Rest (Jeremiah 17:21,22) and that our asses (used for travel) had to also rest, then for sure we have to “abide in our places…on the seventh day.” Thus, using our cars and paying tolls and public transportation on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest is absolutely forbidden! And walking to the Temple or to any meeting place was and still is out of the question all because GOD’s Seventh Day is specifically to be kept as a DAY of “COMPLETE REST” - Shabatone (as is written in Hebrew).
The wise, obedient ones understand the great importance of observing this Seventh Day of Rest exactly as GOD Commanded and will not add to or diminish from this Law of the “Blessed,” “Sanctified,” and “Holy” Seventh Day Sabbath.
“…we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”
“And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”
“… The LORD God of your fathers,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob…this is my name for ever,
and this is my memorial unto all generations.”
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant
whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me,
and understand that
I am he:
before me there was no God formed,
neither shall there be after me.
“I, even I, am the LORD;
and beside me there is no saviour.”
The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord.
Next, is the keeping of HIS Laws.

“And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven

and LET THEM BE FOR SIGNS, and for SEASONS, and for DAYS, and YEARS:”
“He [GOD] appointed the moon for seasons:
the sun knoweth his going down.”
“Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,
and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,
which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar;
The LORD of hosts is his name:
“If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD,
then the seed of Israel also shall cease
from being a nation before me for ever.”

QUESTIONS ON “OLD TESTAMENT” BIBLE TRIVIA TO PONDER:
"Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him." Deuteronomy 8:6
Why does the GOD of Israel feel that it is important for HIS Covenant People to "FEAR HIM"?
"The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts is his name." Jeremiah 10:16
What does the GOD of Israel mean that Jacob "is the former of all things"?
QUESTION AND ANSWER (Q and A):
What was the reason the GOD of Israel made HIS Holy Sabbath Day of Complete REST a "Sign" between HIM and the Nation of Israel?
For all that the GOD of Israel Created and established, HE is worthy of stupendous PRAISE. That would include HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, as well as the People HE made HIS Chosen. Because the Holy Seventh Day is GOD's Day that marks HIS Hand in CREATION, HE uses it to shed Light on HIS Union with HIS Covenant People, the Nation of Israel, the SEED of Jacob. And this UNION is a prominent weekly occurrence that must be acknowledged and observed, all because it is a "Sign" between the GOD of Israel and the Nation of Israel.
INFO/HINTS FOR HARDY, HEALTHY HEBREWS:
HEALTH REPORT FROM THE DESK OF OUR SISTER T'ZIRAH BAHT YISRAEL:
Thank you YHWH for making me. YOU alone sustain me.
Praise YHWH for HIS majesty, for YOUR mercy, and YOUR patience with me.
I just wanted to thank YOU for making such a wonderful body.
What a creation you made. . My body is a miracle of parts and systems.
Thank you YHWH.
HALLELUYAH! HALLELUYAH! HALLELUYAH!
Praise YHWH the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all HIS benefits-who forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases
O YHWH my GOD, I called to you for help and you healed me.
THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE:
HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CHANGE?
Since the Obama administration is busy attempting to "reform health care", I'd like to canvass those here at The LawKeepers Website to elicit your opinions and/or suggestions about how you think changing the system would work. I would also like for viewers to look at Michael Moore's "Sicko" documentary for some insight into the present American Health Care System.
We all are responsible for safeguarding our health and the health of those of our immediate families. And in the coming days and years we will face some real health challenges. Please send your comments and ideas in so we can discuss health and health care to find real solutions.
I'd like to know about people's experiences with either health care practitioners, e.g., doctors, nurses, Physician Assistants (PA's) or APN (Advanced Practice Nurses), Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNS), Certified Nurses Assistants (CNA's, Nurses Aides), Medical Assistants or experiences while patients are in hospitals, clinics., etc.
In the coming years we will see more and more "walk in" type clinics run by either privately run or individually controlled medical care.
I look forward to receiving your opinions and concerns.
Sister T’Zirah baht Yisrael
[Personally, I am very encouraged by this information. Given the FDA, the various pharmaceuticals, and the medical industry, including some doctors, greed is taking precedent over providing the best foods and medical attention for patients. And we desperately need a competent nurse and someone knowledgeable in holistic healing. We are fortunate, as our Sister T’Zirah serves this purpose, and has desires to see that we heal with the best there is to provide at this time. T.Y., Editor]
CELL PHONE USAGE
I'm sending this to make a special appeal to you all to try to limit your cell phone usage. Although there is still some debate on the matter, here is a blurb from the latest issue of Consumer Reports (Jan. 2010) on cell phones:
"Research into the possible risks of cell-phone radiation continues. A recent article in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, based on research involving about 38,000 people, found a slightly increased risk of head and neck cancer among longtime cell-phone users. But more evidence is needed to understand the link, if any, between phones and cancer. We'll keep tracking the research. If you want to minimize exposure, use a speaker phone or hands-free headset, hold the phone away from the head and body (especially when a call is connecting), and reduce usage, especially by children."
There is more information about this subject, but I don't want to turn this into a lecture. I'm just urging you to please take precautions when using cell phones. I know that it's a wonderful technology (even I feel lost if I ever leave home without my cell phone), but it's not without its dangers. As many of us have experienced and know, industry and/or government won't tell you about the real dangers you face/d until sometimes decades later.
Use your wisdom. Limit your cell phone use, particularly when it comes to our children. It's our job to protect them!
Peace and blessings,
Healthcare bill past banned OTC Vitamins and Minerals
Peace and Blessings;
Well once again we are hit with some very devastating news for this week. Last week, it was the Black's law Dictionary being a Hoax; and for those of you who did not get that information, it is included below, but this week I wanted to take the time out to explain what problems we will have in the future in reference to this new health care bill as it will affect each and every person on this planet.
As some of you may know, we have had a conversation in reference to the government trying to change and/or prevent us from getting vitamins and minerals over the counter since 2007. The Original Codex bill was designed to take every valuable nutrient out of our food and make our supplements less potent. It enabled the doctors to write prescriptions for supplements that were stripped of their health value while making the cost go from affordable to out-of-reach for most people. During that time, many countries passed the same laws without the people finding out until it was too late. There were thousands of e-mails that went out warning others that they are trying to pass the same bill in the U.S., the last place where it was not passed.
After several years of an outcry from the public, it is my regret to inform you that the bill was attached to the new health care bill that was passed on Dec. 25th. We put up a good fight, but the powers that be have pushed it through without any of us knowing any details concerning the issue. Since the bill will come into effect as of Dec. 31st, 2009, tomorrow if you have a health condition or are pregnant and require the use of herbs and vitamins, my advice is to go out and get as much as possible. I find it hard to believe that such a bill will become so effective so soon, however, this is the issue we are dealing with that will affect our way of life from here on out.
Some other key points to the bill include a requirement that all people, legal, illegal, etc., must have health care insurance and pay at least $15,000 towards the insurance each year. Certainly we can see that this is a tremendous burden on the average worker who cannot afford an extra $250.00 per month to provide insurance from their job, if they work and if the job offers health care, but nevertheless, if you do not have insurance, you will be considered a felon and will go to jail. This part of the bill will become effective within 2 to 4 years.
If you owe the government, hospitals, or any other state agency, the bill allows the government to go into you bank account and seize money and assets. That's right! There are no more hospital bills that you can get away with not paying anymore.
We cannot place the blame on Obama; he is simply a figurehead for the shadow government (group of people who control the world), but I will say that we can do a few things to ensure that our way of life will not be as affected by these unfortunate planned events.
Since I have known that some of these things will come to pass, there are a few of us who have been studying ways to maintain self preservation in our own separate society for the past few years. It has become evident to me and the others that living in a society such as what will come in 2010 and on, is not conducive to a natural human being's way of life. I will leave the conversation there until we can all come to an agreement to talk on a conference call or by other means to discuss what we all would like this society to be, but I will say to others who are unaware of the talks, living in this so called "civilized de-mo-cra-tic" society is no longer feasible for our health, well-being, and for our future generations. We must decide if we should maintain the part and parcel side of our relationship with this society. You will always be a part of this land and this government, your ancestors established it for them until you woke up........
Now that you have done so, and it is time because the Willie Lynch time line is up in 2 years, we must come to a consensus as a group of Conscious people as to how we are going to move forward since we will finally be free from the slave mentality syndrome, physically, mentally, socially, and economically speaking.
I admire the powers that be as well as the Asians for planning their future and what they wanted to establish hundreds of years before its existence. A great example is the New World Order, the order we are living in as of 2010. These people have planned this NWO since the 1700's. For over 300 years, slowly the plans have been played out throughout the generations to make this a living slave planet and anything else they see fit. It is time for us to do the same, or we will be at the mercy of someone else's rule. There isn't a document in the world that can get you out of not having nutritious food for your family and a safe place to raise your children without the threat of going to jail over a procedure that was necessary to save your life or your children's lives.
I say let us all brainstorm on some of these issues and come to the table with our findings.
As Always Brothers and Sisters, I bid you:
Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice

REGARDING OTHER MATTERS OF HEALTH AND EXERCISE…
As always, before starting ANY exercise program and/or diet, check with your doctor and get his approval. This is all about being safe rather than sorry.
And if you feel you are suffering from depression, do know that there are medications available for you. Don’t be embarrassed; this malady goes with the RAT RACE. Therefore, see your doctor, and feel better fast!
Have you started that “Walking” for weight loss and healthy heart routine, yet? There is no excuse for not going it alone, joining with someone, or even forming a group to take that walk at least five (5) times a week and for 40 minutes minimum. So, stop procrastinating and get started. Walk to the tune of Scripture or your favorite upbeat music. And if you prefer the quiet, walk and meditate with the Most High. Just make sure that you make time for your body and soul. You’ll see and feel the difference after just two weeks.
THE 52-WEIGHT-LOSS DIET PLAN
Recently, I heard on the news that soon people will be spending a dollar out of every five for medical expenses. But if we are healthy, we don’t have to fall prey to this reckoning. As we grow older, we gain weight. I am a witness! And guess what? We do not need this extra load we are carrying. Therefore, I am doing something about it.
My friend and I have decided to embark upon a Weight-Loss Plan to lose 52 pounds in one year. We have started by promising to lose one pound a week. Thus, we hope to lose 52 pounds by the second week in February 2007. We have already started, but it’s not too late for YOU to join with us. So, hop on board and be a NEW HEALTHIER, LIGHTER WEIGHT this time next year!
Some of the things we plan to do are:
-limit our intake of “white” foods: rice, bread, potatoes, ice cream, sugar, etc.
-eliminate fast foods and processed foods
-walk at least 3 days a week
-do not eat after 8 P.M. – drink green tea with mint
-eat more fruits and veggies
-bake rather than fry our meats
-drink plenty of water and tea
-weigh in every Tuesday and E-mail the other party the new weight status
A weekly journal is kept of weight lost or gained. And there is no fair or fun cheating.
If you do not need to lose 52 pounds, then adjust the plan to the amount of pounds to lose and time frame appropriate for you. If you need any help, let me know.
The Brothers are welcomed to join in the program. By all means, do feel free to share your progress. List your name, the date you started and the weight you lose each week, or if you prefer to only post periodically, then list the date you started and the amount you lost. If you have any special ways to lose a fast pound here and there, by all means do share.
Let’s start having some fun. The more competition, the more encouraged we will ALL be to stick with this Weight-Loss-Diet Plan.
On my first week, I lost four pounds, and I could feel the difference on my walk as I climbed the hills. My husband and I both try to walk three days a week for forty-five minutes. We do about four miles each day.
Don’t forget to first check with your doctor! Better safe than sorry.
Now, get started and feel good and look even better!
May the Holy ONE of Israel be with us to keep us safe and informed in order that we make wise and healthy decisions.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY AND FOREVER:
Let’s keep YIHOVAH and HIS LAW our focus and pray for deliverance and fulfillment of all of GOD’s WORD, so that every Nation will show forth HIS Praise and Exalt HIM above all other gods.
THE GREATEST “SPOIL” OF ALL
The Israelites received Reparations for their free labor when they left out of Egypt (Exodus 12:35,36, Psalm 105:37). Note also that Reparations were given to Ezra for the building of GOD’s Temple and for the service of the House of the LORD GOD of Israel (Ezra 7:12 –21). And it is prophesied that we will again receive compensation for our free labor and bondage in this modern-day Egypt (all the lands that took Israelites captive):
“The Lord said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.” Jeremiah 15:11
HOW DOES ONE RETURN TO
THE GOD OF MOSES?
(Reprinted from 12/98and Revised)
"I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: …"
"For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same
my name shall be great among the Gentiles;
and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering:
for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
"But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male,
and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing:
for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts,
and my name is dreadful among the heathen."
January 6, 2010
Once many years ago, an elder Israelite man told me that the time would come when we would spend much of our time praying to the LORD. Although I believed in my GOD and Feared HIM (though not as much as I should have at the time), I could not imagine what he could have been talking about or what could possibly have me doing so much praying. I cannot tell you what this man's name is nor do I think I knew it at the time, but I never forgot his words. Over the years, especially these days, I have thought about them quite often, as we need Our GOD now, more than ever.
Of a truth, since hearing the words of this man and from year to year, I have been praying more and more to the Holy ONE of Israel. On a regular basis, I pray four times a day, Bless HIM at the top of the hour upon hearing my clock chime, and talk to HIM scores of times throughout the day. Since my arrival in Jordan, it has been like this, and I am encouraged, enlightened, and strengthened by my relationship with HIM and from trusting and turning to HIM.
Am I sharing this information for others to emulate my relationship with the Holy ONE? Does my connection with the CREATOR make me any better than anyone else? To both questions, the answer is, no, not at all. I do what I know that will enable me to reach the Most High GOD of Israel, and, no doubt, I probably lag behind many in meeting this objective. Just the idea that I might find favor with my GOD and the notion that my prayers might help me to return to the Holy ONE is why I pray as often as I do. My prayers keep me from losing hope, and they serve as a means of communicating my love to my GOD and my heart's desires to HIM, as well. My prayers make my GOD know that I am hoping and trusting in HIS Mercy and needing HIM for strength and help during these days and for many, many reasons.
There is no satisfaction or fulfillment in being an Israelite and not being able to seek counsel from Our GOD through prayer. There would be no purpose in having a GOD if we could not endure a divine relationship that would enable us to return to HIM. With the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we are assured HIS guidance, direction, and protection. In addition to being HIS Chosen People and bearing a most honorable identity and heritage, we are also an outstanding people because of GOD's Laws, Precepts, and Ordinances that sustain us a Holy People. This premise stems from the Covenant Our GOD made with our Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Israel to be Our GOD and we HIS People "for ever".
"And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee." Genesis 17:1 – 5
"And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed." Genesis 17:7 - 12
There are many Israelites, but too few who know the GOD of Israel to Fear HIM to do HIS Will in order to return to HIM. Some of us are chosen by GOD from the womb. Some of us find HIM along the way by whatever means and are ecstatic when we do. Unfortunately, for many, the real excitement stops there. We find our true identity, assume ourselves to be "somebody" and then forget or ignore what's important, especially that which establishes a solid path and connection to Our GOD of Moses.
"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Deuteronomy 6:4 - 7
"And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments." Exodus 20:6
"If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land." Leviticus 26:3 – 6 (AND THE LIST GOES ON…)
"Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard. My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him." Psalm 22:23 - 25
That which is important is that when we find out the Truth about our identity and heritage, we should also make efforts to strengthen this Covenant and alliance with Our GOD and by all means necessary. Therefore, we must all make efforts to reach out to Our GOD of Israel and to learn the necessary ways to hold fast to HIM in order to get HIS attention and Mercy, so that we obtain all the inheritance that HE has promised us. It is a fact that too many of us are quite satisfied with being Israelites in exile or even in the Land of Israel but are not doing what's necessary to return to the Holy ONE of Israel in order for HIM to complete HIS Promises that HE made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. One thing is perfectly clear, the GOD of Israel is not happy with our desire to live outside the Land of Israel, for then we cannot worship HIM in the place HIS Chose to set HIS Holy Name - Jerusalem - HIS Holy City, and eat before HIM on HIS appointed Holy Days.
We can delude ourselves, but we cannot delude Our GOD of Moses. HE looks beyond the Hebrew garb, the fringe, the eloquent and articulate presentations, and the assumed knowledge of the Hebrew language. Our GOD of Moses looks at the heart from where our actions and our prayers are initiated and fashioned, and HE can quickly determine who is worthy and sincere, who seeks to follow HIM in Truth, and who is playing games with their own agendas. And HE can easily see who desires to return and who doesn't.
"But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart." I Samuel 16:7
Some of us want so badly for the Holy ONE to be a part of our lives, but we are not quite sure exactly how to reach out to this Most High GOD of Hosts and sustain a lasting relationship with HIM.
"But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them." Deuteronomy 4:29 – 31
One thing we know for sure, making Our GOD a part of our lives involves obeying HIS LAW, Fearing HIM, Loving HIM, and Seeking HIM to please HIM with our whole heart in sincerity according to what HE requires of us (Deuteronomy 10:12). And once we reach this stage, HE will be found of us to guide us further to know HIM and to understand HIS Ways. Then what a Blessing it is to be able to put all TRUST in HIM and be able to see the fruits of believing in the Most High GOD of Israel!
"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." Deuteronomy 6:4,5
I am but a very small servant of YIHOVAH, seeking HIS favor and HIS Mercy to be saved out of "Jacob's Troubles" and to live to Praise and Glory HIM in Righteousness. I want the Holy ONE to know that I am ready to live for HIM and to do HIS Will all for HIS Praise, HIS Glory, and for HIS Holy Name's Sake. I choose to follow after the Most High GOD of Hosts to cleave only to HIM with my whole heart and soul and to keep HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments with all the energies I can muster up. My desire is to HIM, and I want to see what all HE has prepared for the Nation of Israel, HIS Chosen People. And more than that, I want to be joined with others with the same desires.
"For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him." Isaiah 64:4
"The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction." Jeremiah 15:11
Please do not think for one moment that our devotion to the Holy ONE of Israel inhibits our lifestyle. I do not hardly live like a hermit, monk, or eunuch and nor does Our GOD expect this of us for the rest of our lives. But HE does want us to believe in ONLY HIM and to follow HIS Ways of Righteousness. That is the only stipulation. Other than that, HE wants us to rejoice in the peace and happiness HE has planned for us and enjoy our Hebrew Way of life and be happy in the peace and safety HE promises to provide for us.
Please know that our total belief in the CREATOR of this Universe only enhances our lives. When we keep GOD's LAW, we obtain Blessings aplenty, wisdom, and understanding of HIS Paths of Righteousness, we learn how to love and enjoy HIM, and we learn how to love and delight in each other, especially when one corrects another in the LAW. Then and only then are we able to return to Our GOD and find comfort in worshipping and serving HIM. What could be more important in our lives than having Our GOD of Israel to depend upon and knowing that HE is there for us if we do HIS Will?! This is what returning to the GOD of Israel is all about.
We have been such a rebellious people to Our GOD and for so many years, centuries, and millennia that this time, when we are accepted by HIM, we will be worthy, and we will prove ourselves deserving to be numbered among GOD's Righteous Remnant.
"The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid." Zephaniah 3:13
Many times we think the Holy ONE does not hear our prayers, as HE seems so absolutely silent to our requests. Let us not despair. We have no choice but to be strong in our knowledge of GOD's Truth, as HE is all we've got. Know that as surely as we exist, HE is there, waiting, watching, and recording in HIS "Book". If we are sincere, the Holy ONE of Israel responds and is right on time. That is when we know that HE has heard our prayers.
Does this mean go out and play the lottery and pray to win big? Not at all. Been there and done that!!! The Most High GOD of Moses rewards us HIS Way and according to what's best for us at the time. HE sees much farther than we do, is the wiser, and strategizes peoples and nations in ways that we could never imagine. The bottom line is that we must be genuine and caring Israelites who desire to sustain observance of GOD's LAW, as it is written and not as we imagine. And do believe that our rewards will manifest at the appropriate time; we just have to remain steadfast. At the end of the day, when GOD's promises are fulfilled, there may not be any reason to want for anything.
Another item of virtue we must learn is patience and learn to await the Blessings the Most High will indeed bestow upon us as a Nation. Think about it. If we were given our Blessings at this present time, they would be taken up in one tax basket or another or quickly usurped by the Gentile World System of greed and corruption. Therefore…
"Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it." Psalm 37:34
"Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob.And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God." Ezekiel 28:25,26
My constant prayer is that the Holy ONE will be with us to lead and guide us with HIS Mighty Hand and Arm around us and will teach us to keep HIS LAW in Righteousness. Our Fear of Our GOD of Moses encourages us to obey HIS Voice and will enable us to find favor with HIM. But we must be sincere as we seek to follow HIM or otherwise, our way will not be prosperous, and believe me, HE will make you know it.
We have wronged Our GOD, the CREATOR of this Universe, the GOD that made and established us HIS Chosen People. We have committed the worst sins man can do against his GOD. We have not only sinned against Our GOD of Israel, but we have forsaken HIM for that which is not god and have disobeyed HIM ever since the establishment of the Covenant HE made with our forefathers unto this day. And whether those of us living today return to HIM or not, GOD's Holy LAW will serve its purpose. HE will not change HIS Righteous and Perfect Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, and do know that there will eventually be a "Remnant" of Israel to worship HIM exactly as HE has required. We cannot forget that GOD's LAW was Created for these reasons: to make us a Holy People unto HIMSELF, to show the World that Our GOD of Moses is the True and Living GOD, and to prove that there is none other GOD besides HIM.
"Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?" II Samuel 7:22,23
Please understand that no matter how knowledgeable one is about GOD's Truth, seeking the Holy ONE in earnest to return to HIM is something NO ONE can teach us. This is something we must yearn and long for with all our hearts and accomplish on our own by accepting ONLY the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as the True and Living GOD and by getting our hearts in order to FEAR HIM to do HIS Will in earnest. This is obtained through being sincere in approaching Our GOD of Moses and without deluding ourselves with our imaginations and without playing games with HIM and/or with our Brothers and Sisters. In essence, seeking to follow the GOD of Israel is foremost all about living according to HIS Ways of Righteousness and being honest, faithful, and dedicated to HIM and to all that HE loves, especially the apples of HIS Eye. This passion and need to return to the Most High GOD of Moses must come from within – from deep down in our soul and with much supplication and prayer. Remember, the Holy ONE looks within our hearts, and HE is giving us one last opportunity to turn to HIM. And HIS Standards right now are about our proving whether we will follow HIS LAW or not.
The sooner those of us who have journeyed home return to the Holy ONE of Israel, the sooner we will be established as GOD's Righteous Remnant for HIS Praise and Glory.
"This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD." Psalm 102:18
"Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." Isaiah 43:4 – 7
"This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise." Isaiah 43:21
Since we know for a fact that the Holy ONE of Israel is to recover a "Righteous Remnant", let us prepare to be this "virtuous people". Let us be knowledgeable of what Our GOD of Moses requires of us to be HIS Chosen People and of HIS most wonderful plans to restore us to our heritage. We have no time to waste. Our purpose for being here today is to prepare to return to the CREATOR of this Universe with our whole hearts and to obey HIM.
"And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams." I Samuel 15:22
The Most High GOD of Israel has been quite merciful unto us. And I pray that we take advantage of HIS everlasting love while we can and before it is too late. Read the Divine LAW that Our GOD has set before us. This is an original work designed by the All-Mighty GOD – Our GOD, and HE gave it to us (and to the Stranger) so that we would be a Holy People unto HIM. This is our gold mine, our lottery, and right now it is the one thing that we should covet and abide by in order that we return to Our GOD and find favor with HIM and safety during this great movement that involves returning to our heritage.
"Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel." Exodus 19:5,6
"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God." Numbers 15:37 – 41
"My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:1 – 5
READ GOD's WORD that HE had HIS Prophets to write specifically for the benefit of those of us living today, all for the Most High to enlighten us and direct our paths. Within these Hebrew Scriptures, we learn of HIS dealings with our forefathers. We learn of their gross sins against Our GOD and a myriad of other transgressions. We also learn about HIS Love for us and HIS Blessings upon the Nation of Israel if they would only be obedient to HIS Book of the Law. We learn about how Israelites communed with each other and with the surrounding nations. With these Biblical Scriptures, we are greatly informed of Israelite Culture and Israelite dealings with the Levitical Priests' Ministry and GOD's Prophets, whom HE sent daily to them, including many, many other situations and issues of great value to us for learning experiences. Hence, this information is made available to us for our great understanding of Our GOD, HIS LAW, and all that went terribly wrong with our forefathers and their breaking HIS Righteous Covenant. Therefore, let us read whole chapters, discuss them, and share the knowledge. These Scriptures, HALLELUYAH, helped to sustain me my first few very trying weeks here in Jordan, and I continue to read them for inspiration and as a most valuable resource.
Again, I share with you the things in my heart – always for the Praise and Glory of Our GOD, the Most High GOD of Hosts.
"In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah." Psalm 44:8
I look forward to meeting with you in the Wilderness, so that we can prepare to worship and serve Our GOD with "One Consent" and follow the "Old Paths" according to HIS Direction and Guidance in the Land. At the imminent meetings that follow, let us rejoice together for GOD's tender Mercies toward us in opening out eyes and bringing us out of gross darkness.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent." Zephaniah 3:9
"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein." Jeremiah 6:16 (READ ALSO PSALM 25TH CHAPTER)
"Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul. For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them." Jeremiah 32:37 – 42
My dear Brothers and Sisters, this is for what I pray and try to await patiently. Let us make it happen. If Our GOD is our Guide, we cannot fail. Please, let us come together, as soon as possible to go about returning to the GOD of Israel for our Deliverance out of Gentile lands and then into the Wilderness first, as HE has indicated (Ezekiel 20:34 – 38). Remember, Only Our GOD of Moses is in a position to HELP us. It was the GOD of Moses that caused our captivity, and it will be the GOD of Moses that will save us, just as HE saved our forefathers out of Ancient Egypt.

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:
THE MOST IMPOVERISHED NATION
IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE
Haiti is just one of the scores of Third-World countries that the powers-that-be has given to abject impoverishment. Haiti is a stone's throw away from the once most wealthiest country in the world – the country that bears the motto: "In God We Trust". Sadly, the United States knows nothing about the CREATOR GOD, HIS desires, and what HE requires. When the poor call upon the True and Living CREATOR GOD, HE holds them closest to HIS Heart and has respect unto their prayer.
"Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless." Exodus 22:22 - 24
"And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 19:10
"For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment." Deuteronomy 10:17,18
"And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 23:22
"Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor." Psalm 68:10
"When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them." Isaiah 41:17
What would the True and Living GOD have to say to the United States about the poor in Haiti? Would GOD not ask the US, "Why has this small country suffered impoverishment for so long while the rich in the US excel in wealth at the expense of others?"
Years ago when the United States was doing better than any other country in the world, why then didn't it try to trade with Haiti and/or introduce ways that would make this country, which is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, more economically productive in order that Haiti might rise above its Third-World status.
Unfortunately, the powers-that-be are still more concerned about sending Missionaries throughout the world to promote a religion unfounded in the WORD of the CREATOR GOD for people to believe and put their faith in, JC, a man that has not proven himself to be anything but the figment of the imaginations of those who spun the tale of the "New Testament". And thereby, this "New" religion, Christianity, has caused the True CREATOR GOD and HIS Paths of Righteousness and HIS WORD in the "Old Testament" at the mouth of HIS Prophets to be forgotten.
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." Psalm 9:17
YES, HAITI IS POOR, BUT IT ALSO HAS ITS FAULTS…
Few people will admit that Haiti has brought GOD's Judgment down upon it hard and heavy and for good reason. Haitians (and all peoples) must abandon witchcraft, the use of familiar spirits, and the worship of a false god. That which has happened to Haitians is a horrific catastrophe, but the CREATOR GOD wants their attention. As far as I am concerned, HE got it, and I'm sure people around the world are even taking note, as well.
That which has happened to Haiti is but a drop in the bucket in comparison to the grave Judgment GOD has in store for these latter days for Gentile World Powers. Thus, people need to realize that GOD is Judging this planet, just as HE did in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. Only now, HE means for once and for all to save HIS planet Earth out of the destructive hands of mankind. The CREATOR GOD is demonstrating HIS utter disgust for all the evil and wickedness that prevails upon HIS Earth, and HE is dealing with nations, one nation at a time and one day at a time.
Christianity has done nothing to eradicate the horrific Hell and misery on this Earth. And, it is unwise to believe that the CREATOR would Create mankind and not require people to walk HIS Paths of Righteousness in the very BEGINNING of Creation. Moreover, it is incomprehensible that the Wise and All-Mighty CREATOR GOD would forgo HIS Righteous and "Perfect" Ways and wait thousands of years later to introduce a brand "new" religion, one completely different than the Spirituality HE introduced to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
There are the SEED of Jacob in Haiti and throughout the rest of the world, scattered for the sins of our forefathers who indulged in witchcraft, familiar spirits, false worship, and who forsook the GOD of Israel and HIS Everlasting LAW. But in GOD's WORDS, "I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early."
If you have a short but sweet item for "The Soapbox That Speaks“, please contact the Editor of The LawKeepers' Monthly JOURNAL: Afraqueen@AOL.COM
We can assume the Universe was established by a “Big Bang,” or we can seek a more intelligent theory.
The more intelligent reasoning is that a Supreme Being did in fact Create the Heavens, Earth, and all things therein. Then the issue becomes, “Did this Supreme Being intend for HIS CREATION to exist in such a chaotic state of absolute Hell, as it is now?” If not, then it is incumbent upon us to seek answers for the present horrific state of affairs in the Land of Israel and the rest of the Middle East that is capable of spreading to other countries even to the United States.
It is not likely that this Supreme Being did not advise the people of HIS Creation IN THE BEGINNING of how to live in goodness and in peace with each other, which certainly entailed how to worship HIM for giving them life. For there not to exist harmony and happiness on this Earth, it is evident that from the looks of things and from the ever-present catastrophic events taking place on Earth, this Supreme Being is furious with the peoples HE Created.
This is where we are now. The CREATOR is Judging the peoples of HIS Creation and is taking back HIS Universe.
History proves that Jerusalem is the Holy City of the GOD of Israel, that the Israelites are HIS Chosen, Covenant People, and that the Land of Israel belongs to HIM, as well. So, why all the attention given to this area of the world that is proving to be the catalyst leading to the end of this present world system?
The Palestinians have been in the land since the reign of King Saul, and the European Israelis have been a State since 1948, opening their doors to other converted Europeans and whomsoever else wishing to take part in this Talmudic process and live off the fat of GOD’s Holy Land. The Palestinians and the Israelis have been at war ever since. If these two groups can live together anywhere in the world except in Israel, then there must be a very good reason why. However, the reason is not one that Israelis desire to make public. Israeli hatred of the Arabs is not at all the issue. There exists a more profound reason than that. Finger pointing at the Arabs is but the ubiquitous smokescreen presented to the world.
THE TRUTH ABOUT CONVERSION TO SO-CALLED “JUDAISM”
The world should connect the dots and learn the truth regarding the Europeans who control GOD’s Holy Land. There is no way the GOD of Israel will accept a conversion process that changes Europeans, Americans, and Middle Easterners into “Jews.” GOD’s Covenant is with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their SEED. Accordingly, how can we dismiss the fact that Abraham was called out of Ur of the Chaldeans – NOT out of Europe. GOD well knows HIS Chosen People, no matter that HE took their identity from them and cast them from HIS Land.
And their being scattered into the “Four Corners of the Earth” to serve their enemies has everything to do with the problems in the Middle East, as this crisis relates to the CREATOR GOD taking back HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land, HIS Holy City, and HIS Chosen People. The Israelis know this. They see the handwriting on the wall, but they are fighting the CREATOR GOD tooth and nail. That’s what this war is all about - Israeli control - to keep out the SEED of Jacob whom GOD is calling home. Hence, the Israelis, even if time permitted, would not give the Palestinians their State for fear the Israelites would seek to live there also. And just for the record, one can learn about the true identity of the descendants of Jacob by reading what the CREATOR GOD of Israel said would befall them in Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters.
The Israelis have a rabid requirement to control all the Land of Israel including the Palestinian territories for one reason and for one reason only, which has everything to do with their “Law of Return.” The Israelis and their Rabbinute (their religious party) are ever aware that the CREATOR GOD of Israel has a Covenant People – The Twelve Tribes of Jacob, and they know that according to Biblical Prophecy the CREATOR GOD of the Land of Israel and this Universe will restore HIS Chosen People to their heritage. For obvious reasons, in no way do the Israelis (European converts to what’s called “Judaism,” which is of their own making) want this to happen, for then they will no longer have control of the Land of Israel at all. However, they know their days are numbered.
“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:”
Ezekiel 36:7 – 10
Now, the Truth is out. This is the reason for the decades of turmoil, death, and destruction over GOD’s Holy Land. And of a Truth, the Israeli powers-that-be have no qualms about their dilemma. They are prepared to fight to the end, but who are they really fighting? It all has to do with what prophecy foretells, and what must be fulfilled.
Conversely, Israelis are putting too much false hope in their military powers. When it comes to the Children of Israel, the CREATOR GOD fights their battles, and since it is time for their return, there is nothing Israeli’ weaponry can do to stop GOD’s Commandment from manifesting.
The Israelites were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise and to be a light to the world for HIS Ways of Righteousness – HIS Book of the Law (the teachings of the Prophet Moses – NOT the Talmud compiled by European “Jews”).
“Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;”
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.” Isaiah 43:21
And it is for this reason the Supreme Being, or rather the CREATOR GOD of Israel is taking back HIS magnificent Universe and making it a place of Divine Peace, one that Exalts and Magnifies HIM for all HIS Wondrous Works.
The CREATOR GOD has held HIS Peace for a very long time, all because of the curses HE put on HIS Chosen People for forsaking HIM for false gods and for rejecting HIS LAW. Their rebellion caused GOD to cast HIS People into the hands of the heathen, and HE went into seclusion permitting Gentiles to run the world and teach HIS People a lesson that would send them running back to HIM seeking forgiveness with contrite spirits.
“I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.” Isaiah 42:14
For a long time people believed that the European “Jews” were really the people of the Bible, but the CREATOR knows HIS Chosen People, the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the men with whom HE made an Everlasting Covenant (Genesis 17:1 – 21).
From the Slave Trade to world hatred, and enduring racism and discrimination all over the world, Blacks have suffered at the hands of those who ruled over them. But now, the CREATOR GOD of Israel is awakening the Dry Bones and calling HIS People home to the chagrin and utter dismay of European Israelis who are helpless to do anything about it but who still have plans to thwart the WORD of GOD. Trust me, their efforts will not end in victory, and nothing since 1948 has even given them hope that they could take the place of the SEED of Jacob/Israel (Genesis 32:28) – neither by conversion nor submersion.
Thus, the reasons for the war for Israeli control of GOD’s Land and the reasons for a world of troubled times, disasters, endless suffering, despair, and many, many tears.
The CREATOR is taking back HIS Universe and keeping HIS Everlasting Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Patriarchs of the Nation of Israel.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.” Isaiah 10:20 - 22
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.” Isaiah 11:11
“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.” Ezekiel 36:27
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.” Isaiah 66:22
“Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.”
Jeremiah 30:18 – 21
“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things. For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God. For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.” Jeremiah 31:1 – 13
“The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.” Zephaniah 3:13
“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.” Zephaniah 3:19
And for all HIS Creations, especially man, the ONE CREATOR GOD of Israel will be acknowledged and worshipped by HIS Chosen People and all Nations remaining from HIS Wrath and destruction of the wicked. The Peoples of this world will revolve around its MAKER!
Yes, the All-Mighty CREATOR will liberate HIS Holy Land and will return to HIS Holy City Jerusalem, where once again HIS Holy Priests will minister before HIM and where people of all Nations will visit to Bless HIM for HIS GOODNESS and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 66:23
“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Zechariah 14:16
“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.” Zephaniah 2:3
WHAT IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE CREATOR GOD?
“And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:25
“When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 31:11 - 13
The fulfillment of the above passage is just a matter of time.

THUS SAITH THE LORD
BLESSED BE THE MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB FOR HIS MULTITUDE OF MERCIES IN NOT UTTERLY DESTROYING THE SEED OF JACOB!
WE WANT ANSWERS, BUT CAN WE HANDLE THE TRUTH?
What in the world is happening?
As people watch and experience frightening and disastrous floods, killer storms, Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, destructive fires, famine, and incurable diseases, they can only ask, “Will my loved ones and I be spared?”
As people sit in churches and temples, they wonder, “Why aren’t my prayers being answered?” And “Who can I trust to spiritually guide me?”
As people raise their children, they wonder, “How can I explain the reasons why GOD does not end hunger, impoverishment, race hatred, unhappiness, ubiquitous catastrophes, and bring peace to this Earth?”
And “Why would GOD hand HIS Earth over to the heathens?”
The ANSWERS to all these questions and many, many more can be found in “The Old Testament.”
For more respect for the Ancient of Books read
THUS SAITH THE LORD
A Book on the “Old Testament”
In that this book details new revelations and unconventional perspectives about Christianity and so-called “Judaism” (unrelated to the LAW GOD gave to Moses), would you be so inclined to consider the answers and solutions written therein?
At a time when people fear for their lives because of the many disasters and the growing possibilities of a nuclear war, it is time to seek explanations that make sense. Therefore, read the WORD OF GOD that has been hidden for millennia in order that the reign of the heathen may be fulfilled. Read THUS SAITH THE LORD for knowledge and understanding, as all the world watches GOD’s WONDROUS WORKS unfold bringing an end to the corruption and evils that fill the Earth HE CREATED!
IT IS GOD’s TURN NOW!

CALLS ATTENTION TO HIMSELF,
CAUSES ALL TO KNOW HIM AND HIS TRUTH!
THE CREATOR GOD WILL BE EXALTED AND
BILLIONS WILL BOW ONLY TO HIM!
When a child, I said I would kill whoever killed GOD.
Now, an adult, I know that no one can kill the True and Living CREATOR GOD
but rather must serve, worship, and magnify ONLY HIM or pay dire consequences, and
the order of each and every day prove to be the Truth of this matter.

A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE “KOY”
TAKE DILIGENT HEED…
“…take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law,
which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments,
and to cleave unto him,
and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
June 19, 2006
What exactly does the GOD of Israel mean when HE Commands us to take diligent heed to do HIS Commandments and HIS LAW?
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:19,20
“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 32:46,47
I would think that to take diligent heed means to be extremely cautious to keep GOD’s LAW, read and study it, DO IT, and pray to the GOD of Israel for wisdom to understand it. And in addition to that common sense would be to either join with others so determined or be alone in returning back to the Holy ONE and what’s required of the SEED of Jacob.
This might seem ever so trivial a detail to some, but it means a world to the GOD of Israel. You see, I used to belong to Ben Ammi’s group, and I left for many reasons, but mainly because he was allowing people to call him JC and “Saviour” and because he was not concerned about GOD’s LAW and much less about taking heed to live and do it.
What truly, truly disturbs me is that there are people encouraging Israelites to join up with Ben Ammi and accept his title – “Messianic Leader,” as well as the blasphemous notion that the True and Living GOD would have such a congregation to represent HIM. Yes, of course the so-called “KOY” exists, but it does not represent the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, i.e., HIS Ways of Righteousness that HE Commanded of the Prophet Moses to teach to the Nation of Israel. This group does not in any way signify the Kingdom of YAH, and indeed it cannot in any way portray GOD’s Righteous Kingdom.
The “KOY” is a congregation of people calling themselves Israelites and living according to the Laws of Ben Ammi and the imaginations of his contrary and devious heart. The wise in the knowledge of Truth know that Ben Ammi’s camp, built on corruption, crime, lust, adultery, and death, cannot in any way be connected with the Holy ONE of Israel’s Divine and Righteous Kingdom or cannot be established to receive the Remnant GOD said would return.
“The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.” Jeremiah 23:20 – 22
“My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.” Jeremiah 50:6
Moreover, King David’s Seed will head the CREATOR GOD’s Righteous Kingdom that will exist upon this Earth, and he will know to be the perfect role model for living GOD’s LAW in Righteousness.
I have never read where Kings David and Solomon called themselves “Messiah.”
“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.” Isaiah 11:1 – 5
“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.” Isaiah 11:10
And this Righteous Kingdom will be all about serving, worshipping, and PRAISING the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and about representing HIM and spreading HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments throughout this world, in order that the CREATOR GOD of Israel will be Magnified and will receive all the Praise and all the Glory, so that people will abandon the “New Testament” and its theology. Have no doubts about it, the son of David will rule from Jerusalem and the GOD of Heaven and Earth will rule over all (Psalm 103:19).
I find nothing in GOD’s WORD to support an existence of HIS Kingdom in Israel under the control of Gentile Jews. Ben Ammi has deceived hundreds into believing this lie that he is the Messianic leader of GOD’s Kingdom. How long are we going to follow leaders who use GOD’s Holy Name in vain?!
Taking heed to keep GOD’s LAW would entail staying as far from Ben Ammi as possible. And the fact that HE keeps his stores open on GOD’s Holy Day of Complete REST is a darn good red flag and eye-opener that shouts to stay away from this leader, as of a Truth, he does not FEAR the GOD of Israel to do HIS Will. And what better information exists from Our GOD to prove Ben Ammi to be one who defies the All-Mighty GOD!
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
This passage is the best gauge Israelites have for determining and for understanding who to accept as a genuine leader or know who FEARS the Holy ONE of Israel. If Ben Ammi and the people of his camp defy the Most High GOD of Israel, then why join with them, and why take part in their beliefs unfounded in GOD’s LAW and in their disobedience?
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:1,2
“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.” Psalm 26:5
“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” Psalm 66:18
“Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.” Psalm 141:4
“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.” Isaiah 1:2 - 4
Another perfect incident that serves to explain why we cannot join with people who break GOD’s LAW concerns Jehoshaphat and Ahziah. And does it ever speak VOLUMES!
“And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.” II Chronicles 20:35 – 37
Let’s not pretend we don’t know about our past and how our stiffnecked and rebellious forebears loved to be connected with evildoers and how they encouraged the lawful to follow wickedness. At least admit to what THUS SAITH THE LORD!
At this late day and in the time of Jacob’s Trouble, why would we even consider joining with Ben Ammi or with anyone or with any congregation that does not make GOD’s LAW the Paths of Righteousness to follow and walk? Our GOD of Israel promises us that if we return to HIM and HIS LAW, that then we can return to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-4). If people will join with Ben Ammi, then for them GOD’s Promise is made void.
“And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.” Ezekiel 11:12
“Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.” Jeremiah 30:15
“And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:” Jeremiah 32:22,23
What a crime! Ben Ammi was among the blessed to return, but just like his rebellious forefathers, he, too, refuses to be obedient to the LAWS of the GOD of Israel.
The WORD of the GOD of Israel also condemns Ben Ammi for calling himself a “Messianic Leader” in order to gather Israelites and Christians into his fold. But in no way does he emulate the “Old Testament” men of GOD!
Was Moses, Joshua, Samuel, the kings of Israel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, or any of the other Prophets who promoted GOD’s Book of the Law and who spoke “THUS SAITH THE LORD” called a Messiah? Do we need this? Is this something required of us to have before us?
I listened to a Brother in Paltalk Chat go to extremes to contrive a justifiable explanation for Ben Ammi calling himself a Messiah. The Truth of the matter is that this word is not even connected with Hebrew-Israelite Culture. “Jews” and Christians and the Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” are very much associated with the word “Messiah,” but not the Israelites who wandered forty years in the Wilderness and inhabited the Land of Israel. And if Moses was NOT given this C.E. terminology to introduce to the Children of Israel, then there is no reason for us to know about it at all. There isn’t even ANY information in this Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament” that is essential for Israelites to know and do – none at all. All that the GOD of Israel required of us to know and do was given to HIS Servant Moses and is reiterated in the books of HIS Prophets who utter “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” There is no “THUS SIAITH THE LORD” in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.” Both of these books were written AFTER GOD scattered HIS Chosen People, Israel, from the land. That being the case, this literature is suspect, and proof of this is the fact that the Israelites were scattered to live in “Darkness” and to serve their enemies. So, why would the Holy ONE give them any information about seventy weeks or seventy years or seventy anything?
And even if this information is for a time after the Israelites return, the information still makes no sense. “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…” (Daniel 9:27). This verse contradicts what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” about HIS Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31 – 34 and in Ezekiel 20:37. And not one of GOD’s Prophets makes mention of this event in the Book of Daniel.
Just for the record, “THUS SAITH THE LORD” is mentioned more than 400 times in the “Old Testament” but not even once in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.” That’s no mistake. That’s for us to think logically and connect the dots! Therefore, when we do the research concerning the year the Book of Daniel was probably written, we will see that this Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” were written to deceive Israelites, and, thus, we have no reason to accept the information in either of these books as being GOD’s WORD.
GOD’s Covenants – HIS LAW and HIS Promises, as well as the “New Covenant” spoken of in Jeremiah 31:31-34 - will resume upon our return to our heritage. And there is no other WORD of GOD to have us believe that any one of these Covenants will be one week. Actually, when you consider what’s written in Daniel 9:27, none of this chapter makes any sense whatsoever.
“He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:” Psalm 105:8 – 10
“Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.” Psalm 106:44,45
The Holy ONE of Israel has not only remembered HIS Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but HE has opened our eyes to the fact that WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, but unfortunately, too many of us do not choose to do that which is necessary to stay in HIS good graces.
Another serious issue is that certain people credit Ben Ammi with moving Israelites to Liberia and then on to Israel. The GOD of Israel did not say that Ben Ammi would deliver HIS People. HE said that HE would, and when HE does, for sure HE wants all the GLORY, every whit! HE got all the GLORY in the Israelite Deliverance out of Egypt, and HE, unequivocally, will be Exalted AGAIN upon the return of the Remnant of Israel that GOD promises HE WILL GATHER. To suggest or even think for a moment that Ben Ammi deserves recognition for that which is due to the Holy ONE of Israel leads me to believe that some of us, being Israelites, have truly lost sight of what’s important to know and understand. It would appear that the Holy ONE is again proving Israelites to determine who will and who will not enter into HIS Glorious Kingdom.
And just because people think Ben Ammi to be prosperous and have more than other congregations is no reason to boast about the advancements he has made. When I hear this, I am constantly reminded of the “green bay tree” in Psalms.
“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” Psalm 37:1 – 3
“I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.” Psalm 37:35 - 37
“They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:” Psalm 49:6,7
“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” Psalm 127:1
It would appear that people don’t yet get the full understanding of the above verse that is loaded with Truth, conviction, and certainty. Time proves everything! The Flood of Noah’s Day and the scattering of the Nation of Israel into the Four Corners of the Earth are proven facts that the CREATOR GOD of Israel does not tolerate people taking HIS Name in vain, disobedience of HIS LAW, and the worship of false gods and even of man.
Ben Ammi is not “perfect.” He, himself, said in 1996 that he is doing 60%. Thus, he isn’t even close to being “the perfect man.” He is failing and falling fast! His works and teachings speak volumes. We have history to probe for what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” and for what required of us. AND we have read what has happened to Israelites who stray from GOD’s LAW in order to establish their own direction. We have book after book in the “Old Testament” that gives us all the information we need concerning rebellious Israelites. We know what the GOD of Israel did to them, and we know that HE has not changed HIS Ordinances one iota, and that HE will NEVER change them. Hence, knowing all this, and knowing what the GOD of Moses has said about HIS LAW and the consequences for not keeping it (in Deuteronomy 28th Chapter), knowing that HE will MAGNIFY HIS LAW and put it in our hearts, knowing that we were scattered for not observing this Divine LAW, would Our GOD of Israel send such a leader as Ben Ammi who has no regard for HIS LAW but rather for magnifying himself and a bogus “KOY”? Perfect men of GOD do not grandstand and promote adverse teachings. They vehemently stress doing the WORD of the GOD of Israel and with “ONE” mindset.
Without question, “the perfect man” FEARS the GOD of Israel to live and do HIS Book of the Law. It is accepting GOD’s Righteousness and to live by it that is our ticket into the CREATOR GOD of Israel’s Peaceful Kingdom. It is not Ben Ammi’s veggie and no-salt diets. Ben Ammi is not concerned about GOD’s LAW, and neither is the GOD of Israel in his thoughts. This “KOY” in Dimona is really nothing more than the Kingdom of Ben Ammi, and he is no more the “Saviour” that he is called than is the jc of the “New Testament.” Ben Ammi and the other leaders in his Camp know exactly how to run their game, and those who they beguile either know nothing of the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, or they have chosen to forget the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW and listen to and believe in a man whose foundation is built on lies, corruption, and death. Therefore, I caution everyone to be very cautious of what is believed, and the reason is that if we CHOOSE to believe in wickedness, then GOD will help to encourage that false belief.
“Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.”
“Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.” Hosea 8:11
What wills Israelites to turn from the WORD of GOD? What force is there that can make GOD’s Chosen People defy HIM? Never mind. I don’t think I want to know. In any case, those who join with Ben Ammi should know that you give up your assets and you are expected to conform to the expectations of the Camp, and you will adhere to WILL adhere to their ways or be punished by beatings and losing your flamboyant “title.” What a scam, the best since the advent of Christianity. However, only the Holy ONE will prove them a fraud and with the Righteous Remnant HE is calling – HIS Chosen Ones who have determined to serve and worship ONLY HIM.
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Joel 2:32
“For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.” Psalm 10:3,4
“My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.” Psalm 34:2,3
“In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.” Psalm 44:8
Is this a time for us to boast? Ben Ammi is subject to the will of Gentile Jews. Why is he boasting, and why are others boasting for him? Is this not a time to turn to the Most High GOD of Israel and boast of HIM and seek HIM for understanding IN HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets? Should we not thirst and hunger for GOD’s Truth?
“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” Deuteronomy 8:3
Ezekiel speaks about the Holy ONE of Israel gathering us and taking us into a SECOND WILDERNESS. If Ben Ammi, or anyone for that matter, does not observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST, as it is written, will he not be purged, as the GOD of Israel has said? Can it really be that the CREATOR GOD of the Heavens and the Earth will allow Ben Ammi and his Camp to fast on HIS Holy Day and have his restaurants open defying HIS Commandment? Come on, People! Who is fooling whom?
“And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 20:34 – 38
Ironically, from this passage, Ben Ammi will not enter into the very Kingdom he boasts.
“And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.” Numbers 16:26
“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.” Psalm 26:5
Surely, we know about Israelites who speak of the Holy ONE of Israel with their lips but have hearts far from HIM. This is the case with all Israel who acknowledge the Holy ONE of Israel but DO NOT live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.
“Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.” Isaiah 59:2
Some of us might think it is all right to join with congregations that defy GOD’s LAW, but this is wholly against doing what Thus Saith the LORD. The Holy ONE of Israel is not impressed with the direction some of us have taken. First of all, we do not need leaders. Our Merciful GOD has brought us out of darkness in revealing to us our true identity and has made us know that we are more than just descendants of Slaves. HE did this because of HIS Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and because we are HIS Chosen People. Wake up, Israel! We need Our GOD, the Holy ONE of Israel. We can call upon HIM for direction, wisdom, and understanding. That’s why HE is Our GOD. HE does not tell us to call upon HIM for naught. HE did not say trust not in a friend for naught. HE did not say that those who follow after evil leaders will be destroyed for naught (Isaiah 9:16). Our GOD has always wanted to be the center of our lives and of our world. And if we are obedient and will devote our lives to HIM, HE will be our LEADER, and for choosing HIM, we will not thirst or want for any good thing. And at the designated time, HE promises to send us HIS Pastors. But until then, trust in ONLY Our GOD of Israel and see HIS miraculous WORKS for those HE loves!
People have come forward with information on Ben Ammi, and the Brother promoting the so-called “Keys to the Kingdom” is aware of this. I have also posted information on Ben Ammi and his camp to the LawKeepers Forum. And if people will still join with him, after learning about this useless kingdom, then they certainly have no one but themselves to blame for whatever might befall them. More importantly, those who will read this Message and will still seek to join and be associated with the Ben Ammi Camp can’t say they didn’t know and certainly won’t be able to plead ignorance. They can’t say their leaders are at fault. They can’t say they believed in a Brother whom they thought knew what he was talking about with some “Keys to the Kingdom.” And the reason they cannot feign all these excuses is because all GOD’s warnings and counsel are written in HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets. “TAKE DILIGENT HEED…” Also, HE provides knowledge to those who earnestly seek it. The Holy ONE of Israel is a Most Merciful GOD and SAVIOR and has covered ALL bases, and HE has left out nothing of significance for us to know and do. Our GOD of Israel has even left us with HIS WORD and good reason why we should not trust in man.
“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:” Psalm 146:3 - 6
“Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.” Micah 7:5
I feel like this: If I am going to fall by the wayside, it will not be because of following some stiffnecked, grandstanding, rebellious Israelite leaders. In that respect, I have learned what not to do very well and mainly from watching lawless Israelites in Ben Ammi’s Camp and listening to him speak the imaginations of his heart.
The Dry Bones have a chance to live and serve and worship the Holy ONE of Israel, but only if we will return to HIM (not to Ben Ammi) to FEAR ONLY HIM and be obedient to the Ways of the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It has been more than 2,500 years since we lost our heritage. And the only way we will return to it is by looking to our SAVIOR, Our ONLY HELP.
With Ben Ammi there is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD Our GOD to help us if we will only let HIM. But we must take diligent heed to follow HIS Paths of Righteousness. May Our Holy ONE of Israel bless the man courageous enough to speak HIS Truth and stand up for HIS LAW, the ONLY True Path of Righteousness.
“Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.” Psalm 33:18 – 21
“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.” Psalm 60:11,12
“Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:8
Wake up, Israel. It is a fact that Ben Ammi does not live by GOD’s LAW. This we know! And since he doesn’t, the so-called KOY, under the leadership of Ben Ammi is just another Messianic congregation in deep trouble with the GOD of Israel. As for me, I shall serve the Most High GOD of Israel and strive to be perfect in HIS LAW. And all those who FEAR the GOD of Israel will do likewise. Going home in no way entails joining Ben Ammi’s congregation, and if this is what you believe, then you are greatly deceived.
“In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.” Jeremiah 50:4
“O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?”
“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, and we will walk in his paths: for THE LAW SHALL GO FORTH OF ZION, AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM.” Micah 4:2 (Caps. are mine.)
WAKE UP, ISRAEL! Our GOD is calling us, and HE is being very selective. HE is only taking Israelites who will vow themselves to HIM and to HIS LAW. For that reason, there will only be a “Remnant” to make it to GOD’s Kingdom – only a Remnant.
“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.” Psalm 4:3 - 5
So, be aware, and TAKE DILIGENT HEED. This is our last shot to be returned to our heritage.
“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.” Ezekiel 18:20 - 24
Thus, it is most critical that GOD FEARING Israelites discern right from wrong and denounce defiance and disobedience to GOD’s LAW.
“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.” Psalm 103:17,18
And at the same time we must embrace wisdom and knowledge and abide by it. Don’t waste precious time on a NOTORIOUS leader who has no respect for the “SIGN” of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST that binds us with Our GOD of Israel. The last thing Israelites who seek the GOD of Israel need is to hear a philosophy inconsistent with that of GOD’s Book of the Law.
What a shame to have people’s stomachs growling from their hunger pains and incessantly thinking of what they will eat when the Sabbath is ended, rather than thinking about the Mercies of the SAVIOR GOD of Israel and giving Glory to HIM for giving us a Blessed Day of REST. How do I know all this? I’ve been there and done that! What a shame to have people not enjoying food on GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath and their giving in to blessed slumber and rest on full stomachs. WHAT A SHAME! Ben Ammi forgets that this Seventh Day is the CREATOR’s Anniversary, and it is HE that has COMMANDED, how HE wants it observed. To his hurt, Ben Ammi does not see it that way.
Those who decline from GOD’s Ways of Righteousness can expect to literally go mad and die. This is GOD’s WORD – not mine! Ben Ammi initially taught GOD’s LAW and as far as I knew abided by it. Actually, this was the reason I joined “Abeta Israel,” the Israelite congregation in which he was a member. But he allowed a former Christian preacher who joined his group to entice him to be the “Messiah” and “Saviour” of the Nation of Israel. By the way, his congregation does for sure call him “Lord and Saviour.” I have heard a woman make reference to him as being that, and Asiel, the so-called “KOY” Ambassador confirms that Ben Ammi saved him. He made this statement in the Paltalk Chat a few months ago. For this reason, Ben Ammi has gone, not just mad but, stark raving mad. I feel it is important to inform you that the woman (Rachel) who called Ben Ammi “Lord and Saviour” is now deceased. And just for the record, the man who is supposed to have “anointed” Ben Ammi is dead and has been dead for a long time, now.
ISRAEL DOES NOT KNOW!
“The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.” Psalm 104:21
Why can’t we just seek Our GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE requires of us? After all, HIS Book of the Law and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets are our Bread of Life.
“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;” Isaiah 44:24,25
King David Feared and loved the GOD of Israel with all his heart and soul, and we have him as evidence that we, also, can indeed be people after GOD’s own heart. Notice his Psalm 101:
“I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.”
I question the motives of those who promote Ben Ammi’s so-called “KOY” and disseminate information leading people to believe that he is a Messiah. Ben Ammi’s works judge him to be nothing more than a Lawbreaker who is steadfastly working against the WORD of the GOD of Israel, and who is relentlessly expounding on his books, his diets, his authority, his being a Messiah, and his “Kingdom of Ben Ammi.”
Wake up, Israel, and take diligent heed to the LAW and WORD of the GOD of Israel before it is too late. Our GOD is taking back HIS Universe, and I PRAISE HIM, for I hate this world system that enables people to live as they choose rather than live by “every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD…” (Deuteronomy 8:3).
“I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.”
Psalm 104:33 – 35
“Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting…” Psalm 106:47
“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” Psalm 5:12
WHO IS ON THE LORD’s SIDE, make haste to return to HIM and to HIS Book of the Law and to live and do it in Righteousness with your whole heart and soul!
BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS TOWARDS THOSE WHO SEEK HIM AND WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW!
Me and My GOD with me,
Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake
REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD IN REGARD TO
HIS SEVENTH DAY SABBATH COMMANDMENT!
REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS ANNIVERSARY DAY OF REST,
AND OUR DAY TO KEEP IN REST AND AS A SIGN BETWEEN
HIM AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”
Genesis 2:1 – 3
“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth
you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place,
let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”
“…this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways
that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels
and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”
“And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel;
Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,
Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth
out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice,
and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:”
As most of you know, I am a firm believer in living GOD’s Book of the Law, and that I strongly stress observance of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath that HE proclaimed a “SIGN” between HIM and HIS Chosen People, Israel. To strengthen the great significance of GOD’s Hallowed Seventh Day, HE used this Day of REST to prove HIS People, the Israelites, to see if they would walk in HIS LAW, or no (Exodus 16:4).
It didn’t take GOD long to find out that HIS Chosen People HE had JUST DELIVERED out of Egyptian bondage by HIS Mighty Hand before their very eyes, did not FEAR HIM to be OBEDIENT to HIS COMMANDMENT of the Holy Seventh Day of Rest. The Holy ONE of Israel made no comment when the Israelites left the Manna “til the morning and it bred worms and stank.” But, it was Moses who “was wroth with them.” However, when some of the Children of Israel went out on the Seventh Day Sabbath to gather Manna, this, without a doubt, deeply upset the Holy ONE of Israel.
“And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none. And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?” Exodus 16:27,28
The Israelites had failed their test! It is obvious that the Holy ONE DID NOT want the Israelites leaving their places on HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST (Shabbatone in Hebrew). And for some of us, if this is not understood, then Exodus 16:29 makes GOD’s COMMANDMENT perfectly clear without a shadow of a doubt.
“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”
The questions now become, Is the Holy ONE of Israel still proving us to see if we “will walk in HIS LAW, or no?” Is HE still using HIS Holy Sabbath Day as an indicator, and are we at liberty to violate GOD’s COMMANDMENT “to abide every man in his place on the Seventh Day”? Also, can we be expected to return to our heritage if we do violate this COMMANDMENT?
“Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.” Ezekiel 22:26
Perhaps at this point, I should make readers aware of the basis for this particular post.
Before the recent “KenesiYAH Conference” in Jackson, Tennessee held on November 12 – 14, a notice was circulated stating, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe!!”
Because the Conference called for activities on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Complete REST, I knew that most of the attendees, if not all, would be leaving their places (homes and hotel rooms) on the Seventh Day, November 13, to take part in whatever was being offered on GOD’s Holy Day. In my heart, I was immediately critical of this Conference for going against GOD’s COMMANDMENT to abide in our places on the Seventh Day of Rest. Also, knowing fully well that the GOD of Israel is against bearing burdens on HIS Holy Sabbath Day, I thought to challenge the promoter for circulating that “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of the Universe” - words that were clearly construed to draw a crowd but displeased YIHOVAH. And I wasn’t at all in agreement with charging a fee to attend the Conference, either.
However, I, for some reason, changed my mind about contacting the promoter. And in the interim, I learned that the Conference was a success and people had really gotten something out of this gathering. Then I thought to myself how wonderful it is for Israelites to Glory and PRAISE the Holy ONE and rejoice in revering ONLY HIM. I also thought that the GOD of Israel might have been truly pleased with the Conference and that perhaps HE had changed the WAY HE wants us to observe HIS Holy Seventh Day of REST. I told myself that perhaps we CAN indeed gather and teach on this Hallowed Day. Although I had these thoughts, I didn’t seek the Holy ONE for clarification on the matter. And I left it at that without considering putting this notion of gathering on the Sabbath to the test and without further thoughts about the issue until this past Friday, November 19, just a few days after the Conference ended when the Holy ONE of Israel gave me clarification on the matter.
On this Friday, while going about my daily readings, the Holy ONE showed me that we must keep HIS LAW, as it is written or face the consequences. And no matter how zealous and passionate we are about our concerns to worship Our GOD of Israel, and no matter how jubilant and how much Praise and admiration we bestow upon HIM in a Conference, in a parade, or in the privacy of our homes, we have got to remain bound and TRUE to HIS LAWS – ALL OF THEM - to remember to do and observe them, as HE has COMMANDED, for this Divine LAW IS OUR LIFE and is to be kept (as it is written) FOREVER!
“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 32:46,47
“Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.” Deuteronomy 11:1
“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.” Deuteronomy 12:1
“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.” II Kings 17:36,37
The passage the Holy ONE showed me in Scripture that caused me to recall the November 12 – 13 KenesiYAH Conference and the activities held on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest entailed the relocation of GOD’s Ark. I did not search for this passage. This passage was brought to me…ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE!
“And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.” I Chronicles 13:8
Without a doubt, King David and ALL Israel played before GOD WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT with SINGING, HARPS, PSALTERIES, TIMBRELS, CYMBOLS, and TRUMPETS. For sure the Israelites made a great tumultuous noise in sincere PRAISE of the Most High GOD of Israel. And indeed HE was taking notice!
I remember many years ago reading this passage for the very first time thinking about how wonderful it was for Israel to Praise GOD and how pleased HE must have been seeing HIS People Exalting HIM with such joyfulness and fervor. But at that time, as I continued reading the chapter, something happened in the passage that I’m sure has caused Israelites and the Stranger alike to wonder why this GOD of Israel would so severely punish a man, during this moment of exultation and joy of HIM, for putting forth his hand to steady HIS Ark. I read on with great sorrow for Uzza, seeking a valid reason for his death.
“And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.” I Chronicles 13:9,10
The valid reason was and still is KEEP GOD’s LAWS for HE will not forgo punishment if we don’t. For me, this passage was a tremendous wakeup call that made me realize that no matter what…we, Israelites, must take heed to obey all GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, as they are written. And when in doubt, rather than assume the wrong decision, err on the side of caution, i.e., err on the side of what's written. Then we can always say, "We followed the Commandment that is written in GOD's Book of the Law!
The Conference of November 12 – 14, I’m sure was well organized with the Holy ONE in mind to draw as many people as possible and to make as much money as possible. But given GOD’s LAW of the Holy Sabbath Day to “abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the Seventh Day,” has GOD given HIS consent and endorsed leaving our places, driving cars, teaching, and holding a Sabbath Service on this Seventh Day of Complete REST? Now, since reading the passage about Uzza, I know for sure, the Holy ONE of Israel has not changed HIS LAW of the Sabbath. It is yet valid, and we are bound to it, as well as to ALL of GOD’s LAWS. And like Nehemiah, I remind everyone of how our forefathers profaned GOD’s Holy Day of REST even after having just returned to the land out of Babylonian captivity.
“Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.”
If we are specifically advised to keep GOD’s Sabbath or be punished with death, that our servants, oxen, asses, and cattle are also supposed to rest, as well, and COMMANDED NOT to bear burdens on the Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then we have no business scheduling activities on this Holy Shabbatone (Sabbath of Complete REST Day). If the Holy ONE wanted us assembling on HIS Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then HE would not have COMMANDED us to abide in our places on this Day of REST!!! Surely that makes a lot of sense, right?
“But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Exodus 20:10,11
“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” Exodus 31:13 - 15
“Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.” Deuteronomy 5:13,14
“And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.”
“Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers. But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction. And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein; Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.” Jeremiah 17:21 – 25
“But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.” Jeremiah 17:27
Although there is nothing written above about picking up sticks on the Holy Sabbath Day of REST, GOD condemned a man to death for this act (Numbers 15:32-35). Doesn’t this sentence of death expound upon the great importance of observing this Holy Day, as it is written and not according to what we feel is acceptable? Of course it does! GOD is as serious as a heart attack about our KEEPING HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST and about JUDGING us if we profane it. Other than picking up sticks on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST, what else might we do to cause Our GOD of Israel to be angry and “smite” or condemn us to death as HE did with Uzza and the man who was found picking up sticks on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath? What about CARRYING all the books, charts, video equipment, teaching aids, and other paraphernalia we need for instruction and for the operation of the Conference? Who are we fooling? All of us are aware of what it entails to organize and hold a Conference. It takes a lot of WORK, as well as a lot of energy to sustain each day’s agenda, and I am only making reference to the activities that are scheduled on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath.
What about the hot meals served at the hotels or at the meeting place on the Holy Seventh Day when we are COMMANDED to prepare on the Sixth Day the food to be eaten on the Seventh Day of REST? What about burdening someone to bear even sandwiches and beverages to drink if food is served at the meeting place? What about getting from the hotel to the meeting place? What about driving or being driven to the meeting place? Think about all the work that transpires on a three-day Conference that includes GOD’s Holy Day of COMPLETE REST.
And when we involve ourselves in all these transactions, we say, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe.” I don’t think so! As a matter of fact, I know what “Thus Saith the LORD,” and I know better! According to HIS WORD, HE is not pleased and no more pleased with us than HE was with Uzza, King David, and the others. I also know that Our GOD is not pleased with our charging a fee to hear HIS WORD.
“The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.” Micah 3:11
I see nothing wrong with Israelites devising ways to raise money, but given the above verse, we should keep GOD’s Ways out of such plans, i.e., don’t make money off of the WORD of GOD. By all means, create jobs, have dances, parties, sell dinners, plan spring, summer, and winter attractions, and keep them above suspicion, but don’t include a fee if at all GOD’s WORD is involved. Let us be about following GOD’s Counsel and not that of our own. And I can’t stress enough that it does not entail charging and paying money to hear HIS Truth. When our hearts are right, Our GOD prospers our way. When our hearts are NOT right, there is no peace to the wicked.
When GOD did not pardon what Uzza did while King David and the Israelites were rejoicing before the Holy ONE giving HIM Praise and Glory, then what imaginations of our hearts think we can be pardoned for breaking GOD’s Law of the Seventh Day when HE distinctly COMMANDED us to “ABIDE YE EVERY MAN IN HIS PLACE, LET NO MAN GO OUT OF HIS PLACE ON THE SEVENTH DAY”? Is this not a COMMANDMENT? If you agree that it is, then how can we justify leaving our places on this Holy Seventh Day of REST to participate in any kind of service - Conference, Unity Shabbot or other function? We have more than enough time to schedule get-togethers and have spiritual assemblies. None of these gatherings should be scheduled for the Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST. And regardless of what different Messianic leaders or Prophets or Levites might say to justify it, there is NO Scripture to support such meetings on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day. The Children of Israel did not gather or assemble on the Seventh Day in the Wilderness, and they are dead wrong to do so now! The GOD of Israel does not change, and HE is not going to change HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day that dates back to the end of HIS CREATION. The Law of the Seventh Day Sabbath is to REST and keep the day “Holy.”
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” Genesis 2:1 – 3
“Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments: And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:” Nehemiah 9:13,14
GOD’s Holy Seventh Day is an anniversary in remembrance of the Six Days it took HIM to CREATE the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein. Therefore, regardless of how much we invest in this day being of spiritual significance in Conferences or other affairs to show forth HIS Praise, we are so wrong to do so. And it’s simply because Our GOD wants us in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath. By the way, if the Conference is on a weekend, there is nothing wrong with staying in our hotel rooms when the Sabbath begins and until it’s over.
After GOD COMMANDED us to abide in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day, as we know, a man thought it was all right to gather sticks. Today many Israelites feel it’s quite all right to drive cars and use other means of transportation to ASSEMBLE and give Praise and Thanksgiving to Our GOD on HIS Holy Seventh Day, but when we do, we are ever so wrong. Actually, we are dead wrong!
GOD’s LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets speak volumes, and unless GOD stipulated changes, there are no exceptions to HIS Ordinances. Throughout the “Old Testament,” we find that GOD sent HIS Prophets and instructed them to rise up early to go to the Israelites to urge them to return back to the LAW that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses. I only reiterate that which has already been COMMANDED of us. And we can either accept GOD’s LAWS or contrive justification to circumvent them. If we are in agreement to accept GOD’s LAWS, then we cannot dismiss the LAW to abide in our places on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST. It’s just that simple. Throughout GOD’s WORD, we learn that we must follow GOD’s LAW or face repercussions.
“But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.” Deuteronomy 30:14 - 16
“Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.” Jeremiah 11:8
Let us not forget that OBEDIENCE to GOD’s LAW should be our highest priority IF it is our intention to return back to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-3 and I Samuel 15:19).
“Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”
Exodus 19:4 – 6
“But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.” Deuteronomy 4:29 – 31
“And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.” Deuteronomy 27:9,10
“If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.” Deuteronomy 28:58 – 61
“And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day. And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.” Deuteronomy 30:8 – 10
“Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.” Isaiah 42:23,24
Thus, I urge everyone to consider ALL GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, especially in regard to holding Conferences, teaching, and doing any other activities on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST since we are supposed to abide in our places on this Holy Seventh Day. NO ONE is in favor of coming together to sing and give Praise to the Holy ONE of Israel, Our GOD and SAVIOR, more than myself – NO ONE! But I would make arrangements for such an occasion to be held on any day but GOD’s Seventh Day of REST! And we have six other days from which to choose for assembling and gathering for Spiritual Reunions.
Enough of seeking the imaginations of our hearts and devising new means and ways to divine and worship Our GOD of Israel. The GOD of Israel has already established how HE wants us to serve and worship HIM: according to HIS LAW and with our whole heart and soul and in Righteousness. Therefore, seek GOD’s Counsel and abide by HIS Ways that HE left written for us to follow. If revelations and the imaginations of our hearts that we embark upon are not in accord with Isaiah 8:20, then these teachings, persuasions, endeavors, events, and doings are not encouraged by Our GOD of Israel.
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
We must not ever forget that although we are GOD’s Chosen People, “LIFE” is not about the Children of Israel. The ideal “LIFE” (style) is about keeping GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments and, in doing so, enjoying peace, happiness, and prosperity in our heritage with Our GOD in our midst! This “LIFE,” per se, is the panacea, the Divine Utopia that all peoples upon this Earth should seek for keeping GOD’s Ways of Righteousness and serving and worshipping HIM is with great rewards.
Like many of us, I seek to return to our heritage, and it will only happen when we decide to be OBEDIENT to GOD’s LAWS that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses for us to live and do. So eager we are to be accepted, recognized, and joined with others, but is this what matters? We must be extremely cautious in all that we do. Praise is comely only for the upright. We can have a thousand with us, but if the Holy ONE of Israel is not with us, then, let’s face it, we are lost!
“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:
the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:
sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is thy servant warned:
and in keeping of them there is great reward.”
Psalm 19:7 - 11
FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH AND HONOR AND KEEP ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, LAWS, STATUTES, AND JUDGMENTS!
AN UPDATED SPECIAL NOTE ON GOD's HOLY SEVENTH DAY OF COMPLETE REST!
I can understand how we would have questions about certain passages, and the reason is that not every single thing written in the Hebrews Scriptures is crystal clear. I have found that over the decades, some revelations have actually taken that long before I could come to a full understanding of what's written. Also, we must understand that the Holy ONE does not give us all that we should learn at one sitting and not even in one year. It truly takes time to internalize all the facts and Truths of the LAW and GOD's WORD and the enlightenment behind them. For that reason, we must continuously read the TORAH and GOD's WORD to HIS Prophets on a yearly basis.
However, given some passages that are crystal clear, I cannot understand how some of us can read into what's written that which is not there. I bring into issue GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST (called a Shabbatone in Hebrew) that we are Commanded to observe in order that we, our animals, and our servants will be refreshed.
"Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed." Exodus 23:12
Just the above verse is enough to make us understand what Complete REST is all about. But no, it really isn't. One would think we would be ecstatic to have a day off recognizing the Glorious "Sign" between Our GOD of Israel and the Children of Israel, doing nothing but sleeping and sitting on our behinds Praising the GOD of Israel with THANKS for not having to work – some literally like a slave. Unfortunately, Israelites want to use this day for just about any and everything but for Complete REST. And if the above Scripture is not enough we have others that are even more precise and to the point and without confusion:
"See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day." Exodus 16:29
"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed." Exodus 31:12 - 17
Some Israelites honestly believe that the Sabbath Day of Complete REST doesn't start until in the morning, i.e., from morning until evening – disregarding the fact that the CREATOR started each new 24-hour day in the evening (Genesis First Chapter) which gave us our foundation for determining each day of the week.
As I have pointed out Isaiah 30:29, makes mention of "the night when a holy solemnity is kept". That verse also tells us that Holy Days are kept in the night. But then there are other Scriptures, as well:
"I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons." Psalm 16:7
"Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge." Psalm 19:2
"At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments." Psalm 119:62
If the Holy Sabbath of Complete REST is not observed at night, then what about all other activities that occur at night? Or do we just pick and choose which ones to observe at night? What about the sacrifice that is left to burn into the night? Do GOD's Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, Ordinances, revelations, and dreams bestowed upon us cease to have credibility in the night season? Hopefully, now when we think about it, starting Holy Days from morning to evening makes no sense at all. However, it does make sense that GOD's Ways and Ordinances DO NOT cease in the night season. All HIS Ways must be observed AT THEIR APPOINTED TIMES, and even in the night.
My hope is that all of us will seek a better understanding of GOD's Truth regarding HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day Sabbath because those who profane it are subject to death, as Exodus indicates.
I have had several debates on the topic of when and how we should observe GOD's Seventh Day Sabbath. The when: Friday sunset to Saturday sundown. The how: In your places, wherever that might be and without holding classes, traveling, picnicking, cooking, spending money, and fulfilling pleasures – in essence, keeping this day "Holy" and at "REST".
Recently, I had a debate on the Sabbath that was about "holy convocation". It seems many Israelites seem to believe that although the GOD of Israel Commanded Complete REST for us and our animals that given what's written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter makes it all right to have an assembly of worship on the Sabbath Day.
"Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings." Leviticus 23:3
Some people do not take into consideration that, ONE, we are Commanded to abide in our places, and TWO, we are also Commanded to REST. They seem to think that "holy convocation" means to gather, just like church folk do on Sunday, and hold Sabbath Service. They could not be more wrong! It is impossible to enjoy Complete REST while in travel and while teaching.
"Holy convocation" does not and cannot mean to assemble. My proof positive is found in the Book of Exodus, where the GOD of Israel tells the Israelites to observe the First Day of Passover:
"And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save thatwhich every man must eat, that only may be done of you." Exodus 12:16
The key point here is that on the First Day of Passover, the Children of Israel were Commanded to stay in their "households" and consume their lamb or goat.
"Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:" Exodus 12:3
"Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover." Exodus 12:21
"In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof." Exodus 12:49
Hence, the Children of Israel were not Commanded to assemble, and "holy convocation" could not mean to assemble for Passover. And by the same token, Israelites cannot use "holy convocation" as reason to hold a Sabbath Service.
Why are we still like our forefathers, that is being Hell bent on deviating from what's written and leaving us to our own confusion? Check the Hebrew Scriptures. Of all the Holy Days mentioned, the two that remarkably head the list are GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, which is, by the way, a "Sign" between HIM and the Children of Israel, and HIS Awesome Passover – both for HIS GLORY and HIS Holy Name's Sake. The Holy ONE of Israel has made the Sabbath "Sign" for HIMSELF for being the All-Mighty CREATOR GOD and for establishing CREATION in the BEGINNING all by HIMSELF. HE has established the Passover Memorial for HIS Great and Holy Name's Sake that all the world will remember it FOREVER because of HIS Powerful Hand that brought our forefathers out of Ancient Egyptian bondage! Therefore, not under any circumstances can we err by profaning these Holy Days, or any other Holy Day for that matter. And we should always strive to observe them with utmost sincerity and heart, exactly as they are written in the LAW.
Remember, Our GOD of Israel formed us for HIS Praise. Thus, when we demonstrate HIS Ways of Righteousness and observe HIS Feast Days that then we do HIM Justice and encourage others to follow our lead. For that reason, GOD's Commandments for keeping HIS Holy Days are not encrypted and need no interpretation. It only must be in our hearts to do what's written.
"If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it." Deuteronomy 30:10 - 16
At some point, it has got to be in our hearts to FEAR the Holy ONE of Israel to follow HIS written LAW, and until it is in our hearts to do so, we are not ready to fulfill Deuteronomy 30th Chapter. And worse, at GOD's set time when HE will recover the Remnant of Israel exiled throughout the world, not all of us will be among that number.
"And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live." Deuteronomy 30:1 – 6
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness." Isaiah 10:20 – 22
"Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there." Isaiah 65:8,9
After leaving out of Ancient Egypt and forty years in the Wilderness, the Children of Israel walked into the Land of Israel as a Nation. This time the "he goats" will be first to arrive and prepare the way for the Nation of Israel, as each arrives. But where are they? And where are Israelites who will fulfill the Second Great Exodus that Our GOD of Israel will bring to fruition?
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth." Isaiah 11:11,12
"…behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land." Jeremiah 23:7,8
According to these passages the CREATOR GOD confirms exactly what HIS Plan entails - ONLY A REMNANT will be recovered!
Those of us who desire to be in that number, let us come together to make a pact to follow the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, as they are written with fasting and prayer, so that Our GOD of Israel will hear us and Deliver us speedily into the Wilderness where we will be encouraged in HIS Ways of Righteousness.
“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”
IT IS IN VAIN TO SEEK PROSPERITY AND RELIEF IN THIS CAPTIVITY!
Our afflictions result from the curses Our GOD put upon us, and nothing we do will alleviate this misery in America. And sooner than later, we will all come to know this truth. The death, sickness, suffering, and despair among us is too great for us to bear. Thus, it is incumbent upon us to get Our GOD’s attention to hear our supplications and change the times, in order that we will return to HIM and to our heritage and live according to HIS Ways of Righteousness. No one lives for the True and Living GOD. No one is in Jerusalem professing HIS Holy Name and Exalting HIM. And no one is making the sacrifices and offerings HE loves. IF things are to change, then we must start the process. After all, we were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise BUT in the land where HE has ordained Israelites to serve HIM (Ezekiel 20:40,41), and the United States has nothing to do with it! In America, Our GOD won’t let us forget that we were exiled to serve our enemies in their lands for our great sins against Our Loving GOD that gave us everything and more than that. When will we wake up to realize the power of our actions. Our love for our GOD and HIS LAW got us in the land flowing with milk and honey, and our transgressions against HIM got us enslaved under ruthless Gentiles. BUT if we use our energies to live according to GOD’s Book of the Law and appeal to ONLY HIM for Deliverance, rather than succumb to life in Gentile lands, then we can expect, through GOD’s Blessings, a dramatic change in our lives.
“HIS Hand is stretched out still,” and it’s up to us to determine our destiny. The “Dry Bones” CAN live but only if they will turn to the Holy ONE of Israel and live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.
“Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people,
and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them:
and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them
from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:”
“Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is
written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside
therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
“That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you;
neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:
“But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.”
Joshua 23:6 - 8
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”
O LORD GOD of Israel,
Spare the Elders of Israel. Open their eyes, Father, and cause them to fear you to do your Will. Have Mercy, O LORD GOD of Israel and cause the world to know your TRUTH. FORGIVE, Father of Abraham and remember your Covenant with Jacob and your Promises to the Children of Israel. Remember your Holy City Jerusalem and remember King Solomon’s Prayer for you to hear us when we pray toward your Holy City. Save us, Father, for ONLY YOU have that power. SAVE us as you saved our forefathers out of Egypt by your Awesome SUPREMACY and MIGHT. Don’t leave us to waste away in the lands of our captivity.
In your own words, LORD GOD of Israel, “Let us reason together.” We need you, LORD GOD, like we’ve never needed you before. Make haste, Dear Father of Israel, Save the SEED of Jacob and let us LIVE FOR YOU in Righteousness.

"O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary. We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name." Isaiah 63:17-19
LORD GOD of Abraham, be with those of us who have the desires to return to your Lawful Ways, Your Book of the Law, that you gave to your Prophet Moses and give us the courage, wisdom, and power to be re-established in your Holy Name. Let us show the world that YOU, the Most High GOD, the CREATOR, the Holy ONE of Israel are still in control of this Universe. Give us a steadfast heart and determination to be True only to YOU and not to falter or waiver from your desires for the Remnant you have called to return, so that YOU may perform your promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Establish that “GREAT NATION” YOU told Moses about, FATHER, – the Israelites who will be totally devoted to YOU, your Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, and who will establish your Holy Kingdom in Truth and in Righteousness.
LORD GOD of Abraham, re-establish your Holy Temple, so that all peoples may come to worship before you and learn about your Ways of Righteousness and your Merciful Kindness towards all peoples who seek to know your Truth.
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL IS JUST AND GOOD!
MAY OUR SAVIOR GOD OF ISRAEL BLESS AND BE WITH ALL WHO SEEK HIM

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,
which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:
and his rest shall be glorious.
“And it shall come to pass in that day,
that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time
to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria,
and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam,
and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
“And he shall set up an ensign for the nations,
and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
Isaiah 11:10 - 12
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel
from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them:
and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”
O TASTE AND SEE
THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL IS JUST AND GOOD!
“And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”
“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you:
and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
And I will give you pastors according to mine heart,
which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
“At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem:
neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.
In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel,
and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land
that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.”
IF WE SINCERELY WANT TO BE A RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE, THEN
WE MUST FOLLOW AND LIVE GOD’S RIGHTEOUS LAW,
AND TO CHANGE EVEN ONE LETTER OF THIS DIVINE LAW
IS TO MINIMIZE THE SIGNIFICANCE AND PURPOSE OF GOD’S
ALREADY DECLARED PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid,
that the temple might be built.”
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL
IS RIGHTEOUS, JUST, AND GOOD!
LET US FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS TO BE OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW FOR OUR DELIVERANCE!
“Who is wise, and he shall understand these things?
prudent, and he shall know them?
for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them:
but the transgressors shall fall therein.”
Be wise to know that Our GOD gives us wisdom and knowledge when we keep HIS LAW!
“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
“Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say,
Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS JUST AND GOOD!
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and
it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice:
for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.”
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them that trust in him.”
LORD GOD of Israel, remember your Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and observe that some of us seek you with our whole hearts to accept and live by ALL your Righteous and Glorious LAW; therefore, Heavenly Father, make haste to TAKE BACK YOUR UNIVERSE and re-establish the SEED of your Chosen Ones for your PRAISE and GLORY and for your Holy Name’s Sake.
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, SO SHALL YOUR SEED AND YOUR NAME REMAIN.
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”
“For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same
my name shall be great among the Gentiles;
and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering:
for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.”
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
“But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob;
but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.”
“Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou,
that thou mayest be justified.”
HEAR, O ISRAEL, the LORD Our GOD is ONE LORD! And it’s our duty to show forth HIS Praise for indeed this is why we were chosen and formed!
“And they shall spring up as among the grass,
as willows by the water courses.
“One shall say, I am the LORD'S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD,
and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness,
I declare things that are right.”
“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:”
We have no time to waste!
FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS!
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD, OUR GOD AND ONLY SAVIOR
IS GOOD AND MERCIFUL TO ALL WHO TURN TO AND TRUST IN HIM TO DO HIS WILL!
LET THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF THE RIGHTEOUS REMNANT ALWAYS AND FOREVER!
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD
AND THAT THERE IS NO OTHER GOD LIKE UNTO HIM!
Let us return to the very same GOD that Created Heaven and Earth and that saved our forefathers out of Egypt for HE is the True and Living GOD, and there is none else.
“…I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt
will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.”
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that
I may assemble the kingdoms,
to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger:
for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.”
“I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
”Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
“At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth,
when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.”
Zephaniah 3: 18 - 20
HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH!
FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS!
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD AND
THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT HIM!
BLESSED BE THE MERCIFUL MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL, THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE SAVIOR TO THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM!
“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive;
I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”
“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? Ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? Yea, there is no God;
I know not any.”
“I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.”
For those of us who truly Fear Our True and Living GOD, let us be blessed with answers to our prayers that HE will deliver us out of bondage just as HE saved our forefathers out of bondage down in Egypt. We also pray that Our Holy ONE will deal with the Rulers of this World and call HIS Chosen Ones home to our heritage where HE will once again live among us and be Our GOD of gods and LORD of lords and where we will be a LIGHT to the World and show forth HIS Praise and Glory in Truth and in Righteousness FOREVER.
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD, OUR GOD OF ISRAEL, IS JUST AND GOOD to all those who Fear and seek HIM in Truth and in Righteousness!!! The Holy ONE was with Abram, and HE will be with us, as well if we will just turn to HIM with our whole heart. I am a Witness!
Let’s be ready for the Day of the LORD for therein lies our DELIVERANCE and our return to our heritage if we return to Our ONLY LORD and SAVIOR and be obedient to HIS LAW.
FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH AND HONOR HIS BOOK OF THE LAW ALWAYS!
“FEARING” YIHOVAH and “OBEDIENCE” to HIS Ways is “Key” to our attaining everything we need to know, do, and accomplish. And for that, BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL FOR EVER AND EVER!
I PRAY TO BE JOINED WITH THOSE WHO SEEK YIHOVAH IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, BE NUMBERED AMONG HIS SAINTS, AND BE A LIGHT TO THE WORLD FOR HIS FAME AND GLORY. I PRAY TO BE JOINED WITH THOSE WHO WILL DEMAND THE KEEPING OF GOD’s BOOK OF THE LAW AND WITHOUT ADDING TO OR DIMINISHING FROM IT!
BLESSED BE THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES AND EXALTED BE HIS HOLY NAME ABOVE ALL FOREVER AND EVER!
GLORY YIHOVAH, CLEAVE TO HIM, AND EXALT HIM AND HIS BOOK OF THE LAW ALWAYS!
A MESSAGE TO ALL MESSIANICS:
WAIT ON THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL
MAKE HIM YOUR
LORD AND SAVIOR - NOT “MAN.”
“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God,
and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them,
I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”
“Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.”
“Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.
“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
“I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death:
O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction:
repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.”
“Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,
and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:
if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.”
“But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children,
and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you,
but go and serve other gods, and worship them:
“Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house,
which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight;
and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:”
I Kings 9:6,7
THEREFORE, FOR WHAT REASON
DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE
THE ALL-MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL?!
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.
“He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.” Deuteronomy 10:20,21
“That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:20
“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
“Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.” Psalm 107:31,32
“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: OPEN THY MOUTH WIDE, AND I WILL FILL IT.” Psalm 37:10
AGAIN AND AGAIN, I ASK:
FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC
OR ANY ONE ELSE
OUR ONLY GOD AND SAVIOR?
“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
“To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?” Deuteronomy 10:12,13
“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31:1
“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:
and let such as love thy salvation say continually,
Let God be magnified.”
“My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day…
“I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD:
I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
“Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things:
O God, who is like unto thee!”
“And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven: And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above,
or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy
with thy servants
that walk before thee with all their heart:”
I Kings 8:22,23
FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC
OR ANY ONE ELSE
“And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.
“And God spake all these words, saying,
“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,
out of the house of bondage.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
Exodus 20:1 - 3
FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC
OR ANY ONE ELSE
THE LORD OUR GOD THAT SAVED ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?
“…they shall CALL ON MY NAME, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.” Zechariah 13:9
Given all the above Scripture, YOU MESSIANICS should realize that we should not be trusting in or magnifying “man” - not any “man” for the Holy ONE of Israel is a JEALOUS GOD, and HE wants all the Praise and Glory for HIMSELF! HE ALONE is Our SAVIOR, and there is none else:
“I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” Isaiah 43:11
“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 44:8
“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:21,22
FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE
Our Righteous GOD gave us HIS Holy Book of the Law – not the “New Testament” that was established by “man” to support his man-made, very well organized and deceptive religion.
WE DO NOT NEED JC!!!
The TEACHINGS of the GOD of Israel are found in HIS Book of the Law, and in no way do HIS Teachings even parallel those of JC. As a matter of fact, the “New Testament” and the teachings of JC were specifically written and embellished to REPLACE GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments - hence, the reason for the word “New” in the title of this book!
This is one of the greatest sins one can commit against the Most High GOD of Israel. Not only is GOD’s Law to be kept “to a thousand generations” and “FOR EVERMORE” (Deuteronomy 7:9; II Kings 17:37), but no one can add to or diminish from all that the GOD of Israel has COMMANDED that we should observe to DO (Deuteronomy 12:32)!
Equally as important, “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them, And all the people shall say, Amen” (Deuteronomy 27:26). Perhaps JC wasn’t aware of this Law!
The “New Testament” and this “man” JC have not only added to GOD’s WORD, but they have disclaimed GOD’s Ordinances and changed them altogether!
“The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” Isaiah 24:4 - 6
Every man/woman who serves and worships the All-Mighty GOD of Israel knows to Exalt ONLY HIM and HIS Book of the Law, for through meditating in this Righteous Book, one is made wise and, therefore, learns of GOD’s Truth and magnifies it and nothing else!
“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 32:4
“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shal make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:7,8
Equally important, the wise will confirm that there is but ONE GOD, the CREATOR, and there is none else!
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” Isaiah 43:10
“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I amthe LORD, and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:5,6
“But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
“Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.” Jeremiah 10:10,11
Finally, when we realize that NO ONE can deliver out of GOD’s Hand, i.e., reverse the CURSES HE put on the Nation of Israel (or anyone else for that matter), then we will understand why the man, JC, is a farce, and thus, was not able to save the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel,” or establish GOD’s Kingdom. Thus, we also realize why the writers of the “New Testament” conveniently wrote JC completely out of the picture and into a false doctrine and forged sense of hope that lies in the hearts of naïve and badly informed believers!
The Holy ONE of Israel wants HIS People to SERVE, TRUST, BELIEVE, HOPE, AND WORSHIP ONLY HIM! AND HE WILL HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY!
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” Nahum 1:7
WE NEED THE SAME GOD THAT SAVED THE NATION OF ISRAEL
OUT OF EGYPT
TO ONCE AGAIN
DELIVER US OUT OF OUR ENEMIES’ LANDS!!!
“And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities,
and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me,
saith the LORD.
“And also I have withholden the rain from you,
when there were yet three months to the harvest:
and I caused it to rain upon one city,
and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon,
and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.
“So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water;
but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me,
saith the LORD.
“I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased,
the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me,
saith the LORD.
“I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses;
and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils:
yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
“I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning:
yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.”
Amos 4:6 – 11
“For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel,
Seek ye me, and ye shall live
“Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph,
and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Beth-el.”
“The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you,
that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.”
“The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.
“Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus;
Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas!
and they shall call the husbandman to mourning,
and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
“Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus,
saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.”
(See also Jeremiah 30:13)
Why didn’t JC know about Amos’ PROPHECIES? Why didn’t he know that GOD had cursed the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” (Matt.15:24), and that it would be impossible to SAVE them? And why didn’t he know that we would still be UNSAVED unto this day?! I’ll tell you why. When the tale was woven to establish this false religion, X-tianity, the writers were so busy fabricating what they thought would be a foolproof theology that they neglected to do their homework! They should have researched what “Thus Saith the LORD,” first! How long will intelligent people continue to believe in this “man” JC?
WE DO NOT NEED JC!
WE NEED THE GOD OF ABRAHAM!
“Therefore, behold the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said,
The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel
from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them:
and I will bring them again unto their land
that I gave unto their fathers.”
“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering,
and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
FEAR BEFORE HIM ALL THE EARTH…”
I Chronicles 16:29,30
If the Holy ONE of Israel DECLARED that there is NONE TO PLEAD OUR CAUSE (Jeremiah 30:13), then of what value was JC??? Obviously, this man was/is of no value to the Children of Israel at all. Hence, again and again I urge Messianics to turn to the GOD of Israel and believe, hope, and trust in ONLY HIM for HE is the ONLY ONE that has proven HIMSELF to be able to truly SAVE HIS People out of the hands of their enemies.
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD
AND THAT THERE IS NONE LIKE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!
Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake
I live to Exalt the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Book of the Law and all because returning to HIM and serving and worshipping HIM (when our forefathers wouldn’t) will cause Our GOD and SAVIOR to return back to us, HIS Chosen People. Therefore, the more Israelites involved in this great Mission to return to the Holy ONE and HIS Law, the sooner the GOD’s TRUTH will be disseminated around the world and the sooner the True and Living GOD will be revealed, magnified, and PRAISED by all (Isaiah 43:21). And LORD knows this “man” JC, or whatever people choose to call him, will have nothing to do with bringing about this disclosure or the Redemption and Deliverance from all the perils upon the SEED of the Children of Israel, as well as the rest of the nations on this Earth for that matter. And the reason is that the man JC, in the “NT,” is too busy shedding light on himself to give Praise and Glory to the Most High GOD of Israel, which is all that this GOD wanted most from HIS Chosen People.
It should be realized that GOD did not let Samuel’s words fall to the ground, i.e., everything Samuel said came to pass (I Samuel 3:19). But this was not the case with the “man” JC, and yet he was/is worshipped and magnified as if he were the GOD of this Universe. And indeed many people think that he is. But if he is a god or if he is “the son of God,” then certainly he should have known that GOD’s Kingdom was NOT at hand (Matthew 10:5 - 7) – a blunder from which he will never recover!
And since JC could not make this significant call that would have proven his identity and godliness, the wise should know that he is as much a lying prophet as was Hananiah who disputed GOD's WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophet Jeremiah who had already said that the Tribe of Judah would be in Babylonian captivity for seventy years. Afterwards, Hananiah claimed that the Judahites would be captives for only two years rather than seventy. Consequently, Hananiah paid with his life for making the Judahites “trust in a lie” (Jeremiah 28th Chapter).
Is not this what JC has done? Hasn't this man-god, be he real or imaginary, made people believe in lies? He was not "sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel" because they were not there (James 1:1), and GOD's Kingdom was not "nigh".
As well, we should give more thought to the fact that “there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face” (Deuteronomy 34:10). That kind of leaves the “Son of God” out in the cold; wouldn’t you say?
And finally, GOD said, “The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert to give drink to my people, my chosen” (Isaiah 43:20). There’s much to be gleaned from this passage! But suffice it to say that the beasts of the field know well the identity of the CREATOR, and they know even better that this All-Mighty GOD is the ONLY ONE that deserves ALL THE GLORY. Unfortunately, these days, when there is a drought, severe storm, flooding, waters in the desert or forest (lightning) fires, crippling dust storms and famine, people, not the beasts of the field, but PEOPLE will credit “Mother Nature” for these weather patterns and not make the slightest connection to the Most High GOD.
“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.” Isaiah 45:6,7
However, for sure great afflictions will cause many people and Nations to turn to the GOD with the OMNIPOTENCE to SAVE and DELIVER out of harms way, and this will be the GOD they will serve and worship (Hosea 5:15). I don’t think it’s necessary to reveal that this GOD will be the same GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage!
“Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.”
“What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back? Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs? Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;” Psalm 114:5 – 7
The WISE will understand!
FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS!
LORD, You were our help during Biblical days, and you did not pass the buck. You were a Voice and a genuine Worker for us, and from the fruits of your labors our trifling forefathers were indeed saved and redeemed many times from the hands of their enemies, albeit in vain to perpetuate many sins against you. But things have changed somewhat, and many of us have returned to you. Therefore, once again, LORD GOD of Israel, save those of us who believe and trust in ONLY YOU to do your Will, but this time save us from the four corners of this Earth for your Holy Name’s Sake.
“When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.” I Kings 8:33,34
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.” Jeremiah 16:14,15
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL! IT WILL HAPPEN!!!
“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
“And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob,
and I will look for him.”
Let us put the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel back into our lives, our hearts, our thoughts, and in everything that we do. Focusing on HIM and HIS Ways, as we come and go in our daily routines is ever so helpful in maintaining healthy spirits and acquiring strength and knowledge of HIS Paths of Righteousness. This attitude certainly helps in making us meek, albeit but not weak, ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.” Zechariah 8:9
“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him
while he is near:”
“I will declare thy name unto my brethren:
in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.”
LET US EXALT, PRAISE, AND SANCTIFY THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL IN TRUTH AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE THE WORLD FOREVERMORE! AND LET US MAGNIFY HIS LAW, WHICH IS OUR ONLY TICKET INTO HIS KINGDOM, SO THAT ALL PEOPLES WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE AND WORSHIP KNOW THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES AND TO SERVE AND WORSHIP HIM ACCORDING TO HIS LAW, HIS WORD AND HIS WILL!
EXPOUNDING ON WHEN THE CREATOR’s 24-HOUR DAY BEGINS:
I happen to be talking with my husband regarding when each new day begins. And his input was much like that of Brother Kweli’s. In essence, he said:
In The BEGINNING there was only “Darkness.” Therefore, because “Darkness” preceded “Light,” it stands to reason why the “darkness,” which was initially first, begins the new day and not the “morning.”
“In the beginning…darkness was upon the face of the deep… And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Genesis 1:1 - 3
In my opinion, adding to this belief is the CREATOR’s pronouncement of the use of “Darkness,” or rather evening, when ending and beginning each new day:
“…And the evening and the morning were the second day.
“…And the evening and the morning were the third day.
“…And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
“…And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
“…And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis1:8 - 31
If we cannot recognize when to begin our 24-hour days, how then can we observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbaths to rest and be refreshed, and how then are we to observe HIS Holy Feast Days, as we are Commanded? Hence, it behooves us to read GOD’s WORD and take note of all the Scriptures as to when our forefathers observed each new day. The information is there, if we will only accept it. There are several specific passages that cannot be ignored.
Genesis First Chapter is already suggested. Another passage is in Judges where Samson tells the Philistines to solve his riddle “within seven days.” And “on the Seventh Day before the sun went down,” the Philistines told him the meaning of his riddle. Point being that the Philistines knew that had they waited until AFTER sundown, then they would have been in the Eighth Day and too late to receive the reward Samson had promised them (Judges 14th Chapter).
More evidence is in Nehemiah 13th Chapter. Nehemiah is angered by people profaning the Holy Seventh Day by selling their wares to the stiffnecked Israelites who did not hesitate to buy them. So, “…when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark BEFORE THE SABBATH,” Nehemiah “commanded that the gates should be shut…” Hence, Nehemiah wanted to prepare for the impending Holy Seventh Day to be sure that no sins would be committed after sundown, which is when the Sabbath or Seventh Day would obviously begin. Again, this is more evidence that the new day begins at sundown/evening/darkness.
I would be remiss if I did not also include the fact that Scripture is clear on Passover and the Day of Atonement beginning in the evening at sundown.
PASSOVER: “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.” Exodus 12:18
THE DAY OF ATONEMENT: “It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.” Leviticus23:32
The GOD of Israel is and always has been consistent in teaching us HIS Commandments. HE would not tell us to begin some Holy Days at sundown and to begin other days in the morning. There is nothing intelligent about such a directive – only confusion. T.Y., Editor

A Psalm to THE NATION
Hear oh Ysreal, for I Cry,

The children of Ysrael are blinded and Dumb,

Peace be upon us all and All Praise to YHWH and His Holy Name
THE DRY BONES
(Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters big as life)
Rebellious disobedient, and shameful.
Cursed, forlorn, and forsaken.
Captives, controlled, and dominated.
Enslaved, confused, and deceived.
Rejected, forsaken, and forgotten of their GOD of Abraham.
Brittle, fragile, and cracked.
Gloomy, dead, and dark.
Empty, ignorant, and blind.
GOD's Wind, HIS Breath, and Life.
Arise, live, and return.
Awakened, enlightened, and Sanctified.
"…Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say,
Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves,
and cause you to come up out of your graves,
and bring you into the land of Israel."

"And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone,
and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel;
and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations,
neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces,
wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people,
and I will be their God.
And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd:
they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant,
wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they,
and their children, and their children's children for ever:
and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant
with them: and I will place them, and multiply them,
and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,
when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore."
Ezekiel 37:21 - 28

FOR YOUR INFORMATION (FYI):
I just received this email and read it and was moved when I was done. A DAY OF REMEBRANCE for the ancestors of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. It is my belief that this is the prophecy come true of The Most High of Y’israel to befall his people due to their disobedience but if we humble ourselves and return to YHWH then HE will hear us and restore the Apple of His Eye. We are the children of YHWH who was placed into captivity but this is my prayer to Yah that we wake up Jacob and become the Y’israelites we were called to be for you Abba Yah. Please read and let me give you a chapter and verse that just fell on my heart….
1 Kings 8:48-52 (King James Version):
And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:
Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,
And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:
For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.

The LARGEST FAMILY REUNION EVER!
Giving all praises to YAH the Redeemer and Holy One of Yisrael, the Mighty One of Abraham, Isaac, and Yisrael.
We of the National Day of Remembrance Committee greet you in the spirit of shalom. We are in the beginning stages of this extraordinary endeavor of holding a National Day of Remembrance on September 18, 2010 honoring our ancestors of the Atlantic Slave Trade for their legacy, struggles and their YAH blessed endurance. On that day we would like to say thanks to the millions of our people, men, women and children who endured more than we could ever imagine. We want to thank the Most High for His Mercy and blessings that allowed them to continue to multiply and not succumb to the worst atrocity ever to be forced upon mankind. They were taken from their land, having their tongue, their loved ones, their heritage, knowledge of their God, and far too often their life cruelly taken from them. They and their children and their children's children were forced to work this land of our captivity under the most inhumane conditions never to reap any benefit of their labor. Let’s face it had it not been for their endurance and their sacrifice, there would be none us. It will also give us the chance to cry out to YAH collectively seeking his forgiveness for our ancestors as well as for ourselves.
Although tentatively the main gathering will be held at Jamestown, VA., the call is going out asking for everyone’s participation by having every state to hold their own rally at each state capital throughout the United States. We will synchronize our times so that we will all be meeting at the same time.
At this stage we are reaching out to all volunteers whom YAH has blessed with the skill of blowing the shofar. We will need at least fifty blowers, one to cover each state. We will need at least fifty Torah-based key speakers. They must know the TNK from the Hebrew perspective but also have knowledge of the entire book because as we know, the majority of our people only read from the New Testament. They must possess strong oratorical skills knowing the words of the prophets and how they pertain to our modern day captivity. We will need a speaker to cover each state.
We are also seeking enough volunteers to cover fifty states that YAH has blessed with the gift of praise, song and dance to perform on the day of the event. We would like for at least fifty people to come forward whose tongue YAH has restored for we would like to have the event open with prayer spoken in our native tongue (Hebrew) and then have it spoken in English. There are many videos depicting Deuteronomy 28 and how it pertains to our history. We are asking for those which think they have produced the most profound video and are willing to have their video shown on the day of the event please come forward. We would like to have a TV monitor set up behind each podium showing whatever video is chosen to be used depicting Deuteronomy 28 so that the world would be able to look upon our history that day. Therefore we are asking for technicians to come forward and volunteer their skills, time, and equipment. We would like for all of our efforts to be coordinated and synchronized so that all fifty states collectively will be speaking the same message at the same time so that it will appear that we are speaking as one voice to the valley of dry bones which is the whole house of Yisrael. We are also seeking our wailing sisters who are strong in Torah and Whom YAH has blessed with the spirit of knowledge of His word, compassion for these dry bones and have the skill to organize. We are asking you to please come forward.
Again, due to its historical significance, tentatively the main gathering will be held at Jamestown, VA. If there are any that receive this email and that live in the state of VA. would you please contact this committee so that we can begin to collect information as to what we would need to do in order to host our main rally there. At the appropriate time we will be sending out fliers electronically and will be asking for each state to duplicate the same, only filling in their state information announcing this event. We need telephone monitors, technical support, technicians and sponsors for each state. We would like to coordinate all of our efforts so that this event will be nationwide with all of our movements being synchronized. We are asking for everyone to wear white that day. These efforts are not the result of any religious or political group. Nooooooo, we are just a voice crying in the wilderness on behalf of all of our ancestors letting them know that they have not been forgotten. If there are any that would like to volunteer their service and would like to become part of the planning committee please contact:
The National Day of Remembrance Committee @ 314-494-9431 or 314 353 8917
or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so looking forward to not only hearing from you but also working with you.

Red Cross: Quake May Have Killed Up to 50,000
(Jan. 14) -- As hundreds of thousands of earthquake refugees lay sprawled in Haiti's streets with aftershocks still rumbling beneath them, President Barack Obama today announced an immediate $100 million in aid, saying "the largest relief effort in our recent history is moving toward Haiti."
Later in the day, Obama told House Democrats that $100 million will be "for the basics," such as lifesaving equipment and food, and the U.S. investment will grow as Haiti rebuilds.
The first American fatality to be identified is Victoria DeLong, who worked in Haiti as a cultural affairs officer at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince. "It's a tragedy for the State Department and for our family in the public diplomacy and public affairs world," said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley.
Two days after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook apart most of the country's infrastructure, the full scale of destruction is only beginning to emerge. A Haitian Red Cross official in the capital Port-au-Prince estimated the quake's death toll at between 45,000 and 50,000 people, according to Reuters, while stressing that precise figures remain impossible to confirm.
The Red Cross says three million people -- a third of the entire population -- need help. A spokesperson also said that the aid organization estimates that the quake destroyed roughly 200,000 houses in Port-au-Prince alone.
The U.N. mission in the capital described damage there as "massive and broad," with the national cathedral, presidential palace and hundreds of thousands of homes all destroyed. "Electricity supplies have been interrupted. Water is in short supply," the U.N. said in a statement. "Haitian services are visibly unable to cope."
Thousands prepared to spend a third straight night outdoors – rich and poor singing hymns or sobbing, survivors sleeping alongside the dead – afraid to shelter under the odd building left standing. People walked gingerly over bodies shrouded in blankets on sidewalks. It was difficult to tell the dead from the living. Men crafted homemade gurneys out of wheelbarrows and mattresses to transport the injured. But to where? Most of the city's hospitals are damaged, and without electricity or staff.
Official U.S. Response
Obama, flanked by top figures from across the government, addressed the Haitian people from the White House, saying "You will not be forsaken, you will not be forgotten. In this hour of your greatest need, America stands with you, the world stands with you."
He has tapped former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to help lead relief efforts, news agencies quoted a White House official as saying.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said she fears "tens of thousands" are dead, and vowed to do everything possible to help Haiti overcome its "cycle of hope and despair." She appeared on several morning news shows today after cutting short a trip to Pacific nations to return to Washington and help with relief efforts. Some 45,000 Americans in Haiti are among those affected by the quake, Clinton said.
U.S. military planes carrying the first batch of aid touched down in Haiti overnight, and troops from the Army's 82nd Airborne Division were expected later today. By Monday, the U.S. Army says it will have as many as 5,500 infantry soldiers in the area.
The Department of Health and Human Services has deployed 250 of its personnel to Haiti so far, and will send up to 12,000 more people in the next few days.
British rescue workers flew to the Dominican Republic and were heading toward Haiti with sophisticated equipment to detect sounds of life under wreckage. A 60-member Chinese search-and-rescue team also arrived with sniffer dogs. French President Nicolas Sarkozy is sending a 400-member team of civil guardsmen and security personal that should arrive in the next 48 hours. In addition, French military ships, including a hospital boat, are en route to Haiti.
Haitian Red Cross spokesman Pericles Jean-Baptiste said his organization -- accustomed to working in a nation blighted by poverty, war and natural disasters -- was overwhelmed and out of medicine. "There are too many people who need help," he told Reuters. "We lack equipment, we lack body bags."
The FAA announced that it has suspended flights to Haiti, after the government there said Port-au-Prince's airport ramps were full and that no fuel is available for the planes already on the ground. Further hindering aid efforts, CNN reported that three ships filled with much-needed supplies have been turned away from a badly damaged cargo pier in the capital.
Among those buildings destroyed in Port-au-Prince was the headquarters of the U.N. mission there. So far, 36 U.N. workers have been confirmed dead, and 200 of the mission's staff remain missing. About 100 of those were inside the building when it collapsed.
"This is much worse than a hurricane," said doctor's assistant Jimitre Coquillon. "There's no water. There's nothing. Thirsty people are going to die," he told The Associated Press as he worked at a triage center in a hotel parking lot.

The first airlifts carried food and medical supplies, while later flights would bring heavy machinery to begin clearing debris. But before they arrived, Haitians used trowels and bare hands to sift through cement chunks in hopes of freeing victims whose faint calls were audible under the wreckage.
Pleas for Help
Voices believed to be those of students and teachers trapped inside a collapsed five-story building were heard by rescuers late Thursday, CNN reported.
With phone lines severed, Haitians sent macabre pleas for help from wireless handheld devices, in some cases literally from under the rubble.
"Haiti is still shaking!! HELP!!" read one appeal from Carel Pedre, a popular Port-au-Prince radio DJ, on the micro-blogging site Twitter. "The last aftershock was short but there are thousands of people homeless and helpless on the streets," he wrote.
Pedre used Twitter to contact friends and family. "Any news from the Magik9/Canal11 building? Any news from Gerald and Bernie?" he wrote. "They are safe," came the response in another tweet.
But such relief was rare today in Haiti, with most people still not knowing whether loved ones were alive.
A U.N. worker with access to a satellite phone made a distraught call to relatives in New Zealand overnight to say her husband and three young daughters were missing and she was struggling to find help amid the chaos, according to her hometown newspaper in New Zealand, The Nelson Mail. Later the woman, Emily Sanson-Rejouis, called back to say one of her daughters was found alive under the dead body of her father, but the couple's two other children remain missing.
Laura Bickle, an American working at an orphanage in Port-au-Prince, described the scene before her: "All the parks are filled with people - they either have no home to go to or they are too scared to go home," she told BBC Radio. "They are pulling people out of the rubble, literally, blood running in the gutter like water."
The epicenter of Tuesday's quake was only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince, which is home to about four million people. Aftershocks continued Thursday, some as powerful as 5.9-magnitude.
Relief efforts were truly global in scale. China sent 10 tons of tents and medical equipment, the European Commission pledged $4.37 million in aid and Israel is sending an elite army rescue unit of engineers and doctors, AP reported.
The coordinator of U.K. rescue work in Haiti, Mike Thomas, told the BBC his priority was to identify places where people might still be alive under the rubble. "We're hoping we can get our dogs there quickly, they'll be invaluable in helping target those areas," he said.
Another Twitter user, identified as RAMhaiti wrote this message this morning from somewhere in the chaos of Port-au-Prince: "St Gerard Church and the school behind it are destroyed. People are alive in the rubble. I look at the sky, see the stars, and it's as if nothing was wrong. The singing, the praying and the sirens bring me back to reality."

Theological Themes in the Book of Isaiah
The theological content of the Book of Isaiah is one of the high points of the Old Testament. Paramount in the book is Isaiah's stress on the holiness of God: God is called "The Holy One of Israel." God's holiness is the foundation of all his dealings with the world. Because of this, Judah could rest secure; God would never do anything that was not just and fair. Isaiah tried to draw Judah's attention to the covenant (binding agreement) that God had made with his people. They were His. He might find it necessary to judge them for their sins, but he would never abandon them. If they got carried away into captivity, a remnant would return to pick up where their ancestors left off. In wrath, God would remember his mercy. Perhaps the most prominent theme in Isaiah's message has to do with the coming Messiah, God's Servant. Four extended psalms, or poems, deal with the Suffering Servant of God. In them the ministry of Jesus is foretold; at another level they are descriptive of Judah, too, which as a nation was also God's servant: 42:1-7; 49:1-7; 50:4-11; 52:13-53:12.
The Servant is to suffer for the world, establish justice, provide salvation for the nations, be a light to the Gentiles, teach the truth to all who will listen, give sight to the blind, offer release to the prisoners, be a covenant to the world, treat the weak with compassion and care, dispense God's Spirit, bear the sins of the world, make intercession for sinners, provide the knowledge of God to those who seek it, and secure peace for all people. All of these dimensions have been fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
Finally, the Book of Isaiah offers a promise of salvation in some of the most beautiful imagery in all of the world's literature. The message concerns God's forgiveness and mercy, freely offered to all who respond in faith.

The prophet Jeremiah is one of the best-known figures in the Old Testament because of the biographical detail to be found in his book. In most other instances the man is subordinated to the message so that little is known about the preachers as individuals. In Jeremiah's case, his life was so woven into what he said that it is hard to separate the two.
Jeremiah lived during the darkest days of Judah's history, spanning the reigns of five kings, and ending with the destruction of Jerusalem in 587 B.C. He called for a national renewal of faith during the days of Josiah (640-609 B.C.) and was partly successful. When Josiah was killed in battle, he was succeeded by a king who submitted to international blackmail. Jeremiah continued his stern message of repentance, urging the people to accept the heavy hand of God as punishment for their sins. For this he spent many of his remaining years in jail. When the nation finally fell to the Babylonians, Jeremiah was spared and allowed to live in the rubble that was Jerusalem, where he continued to preach. Ultimately carried off to Egypt as a hostage, he died in exile.
Theological Themes in the Book of Jeremiah
Jeremiah the prophet is a triumph of faith and courage. In the midst of terrible difficulty, he spoke with conviction and strength. He was virtually the only one who saw clearly what was going on. His dedication to the call of God was such that he never wavered. Because of this, he is a monument for all times of how to live when darkness surrounds us.
The foundation of Jeremiah's message was his conception of God as sole creator and ruler of all that is. God acts according to his own will, he knows human hearts, he helps those who trust him, he loves his own. He demands that his people respond with obedience and faith. Because God knows what he is doing, the desperate situation in which Judah found itself was not outside God's knowledge or plan. If the people of Judah would only accept God as Lord, God would show himself as their deliverer in due course.
A second point stressed by Jeremiah was human responsibility to God. The people had no one to blame but themselves. They were trying to put the blame on their parents, the surrounding nations, the prophets who pointed out their faults, or even on God, but never on themselves. Jeremiah wanted them to see that restoration can come only when we are able to accept the fact that we are accountable for our own lives. Granted that all those things might be factors that influence us, they can never be used as excuses for our wrongdoings.
Jeremiah also urged Judah to trust in God alone. For too long the people had been trusting in their military abilities, their money, or even their own religiosity. They thought that mere attendance at religious services was enough to make them pleasing to God. It was a rude shock to be told that God was not impressed with how much money they had or whether they "went to church" or not. God would allow no rivals, Jeremiah said.
Finally, Jeremiah opposed the false religion and preachers of his own day. Truth must exist within our hearts. Someday God would make a new covenant with his people (31:31), which would write the law inside their lives, not on tablets of stone. Jesus came to introduce that new covenant and establish true religion forever.

Although the Book of Lamentations is anonymous, there has never been any real doubt that Jeremiah was its author. It was written by an eyewitness of the destruction of Jerusalem, lamenting that fact, hence its name, Lamentations. It is a funeral song, written in the rhythm and style of ancient Jewish dirges. The first line of the two-line couplets has three parts to it and the second line only two. The repetition of this rhythm, with the third element systematically missing, is a stylistic reminder of the absence of the loved one, in this case, the city of Jerusalem.
To the Jews of the Old Testament, Jerusalem's fall was the loss of everything: their temple, priesthood, sacrificial system, capital city, nation, and large numbers of their loved ones. For the survivors of the destruction, it meant a forced march of about 2,000 miles to Babylon, where they then had to live in exile, servitude, and misery.
Theological Themes in the Book of Lamentations
The spirit of the Book of Lamentations goes beyond merely weeping over the past. Here we have an implicit warning that to transgress is to invite disaster. The prophets had predicted that God would judge the sins of his people if they did not repent. Now, the ashes of the city were testimony to the fact that God had spoken and was true to his word. History was thus a vindication of God and his righteousness. It was also a declaration of the wrath of God, never a popular concept. Most people choose to emphasize the softer side of God, and properly so, but that understanding must never obscure the fact that God is not to be trifled with. When we ignore the needs of those around us, trampling on justice, God will step in to right those wrongs. It is a grim reminder that it does not pay to rebel against God.
Lamentations has another side, however. Although the nation of Judah is cast down, it is not without hope. The people may yet trust God and find pardon. God is one whose mercies are renewed every morning, whose faithfulness is great (3:19-39). We see the value of patience, prayer, and confession of sin. God does not hold grudges and is willing to start over anytime we are willing to acknowledge our errors and resubmit ourselves to him.

READING FOR THE SOUL…
MY SOUL THIRSTETH FOR GOD,
FOR THE LIVING GOD
"As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Yet the LORD will command his loving kindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Psalm Forty-second Chapter
FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD;
BEHOLD, I, EVEN I,
WILL BOTH SEARCH MY SHEEP,
AND SEEK THEM OUT
"And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.
Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet? And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle. Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad; Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them. And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.
And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.
Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord GOD. And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD." Ezekiel Thirty-fourth Chapter
I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU,
AND CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN MY STATUTES,
AND YE SHALL KEEP MY JUDGMENTS, AND DO THEM
"Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people: Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about;
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.
For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded: And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations; Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord GOD. Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord GOD.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman. Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it: And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.
But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD." Ezekiel Thirty-sixth Chapter
YE SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD,
WHEN I HAVE OPENED YOUR GRAVES, O MY PEOPLE,
AND BROUGHT YOU UP OUT OF YOUR GRAVES
"The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore." Ezekiel Thirty-seventh Chapter
HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH,
FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER!!!
O Israel, there is hope that we will return, but we must first
Fear the Holy ONE of Israel to live before HIM in Righteousness
and to be obedient to HIS LAW without adding new ways to serve
the ONLY GOD capable of SAVING the House of Israel!
O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL
IS JUST AND GOOD!
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and
HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.”
“Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit,
WHICH LEADETH THEE BY THE WAY THAT
THOU SHOULDEST GO.”
The All-Mighty GOD of Abraham and Moses did not choose another people but fulfilled all that HE said HE would do for our forefathers. HE kept HIS promises to the Biblical Israelites and made a name for them and for HIMSELF in the process, AND HE WILL DO IT AGAIN for this Holy ONE of Israel does not lie!
“We are thine: thou never barest rule over them;
they were not called by thy name.”
“My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”
“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
“Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall
tread down our enemies.”
“For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.”
BLESSED BE THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB FOREVER AND EVER!
PARENTS’ AND CHILDREN’S CORNER…
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.”
The works in this section of the JOURNAL are for our children. I am delighted to include them, as these activities will serve to enlighten our youth about the “Old Testament” GOD of Israel and HIS concern for HIS Ways of Righteousness and for HIS Love for HIS People. I encourage parents to read and interact with their children as they make efforts to answer the questions, complete the Word Search, and read the stories in this section. Now, monthly, we really do have appropriate literature and activities for our Hebrew Israelite children. In time, I shall add other things for them to do that will increase their knowledge and make learning fun.
Feel free to copy this section and staple it together in the form of a booklet. Take the time to design a cover page (even using Clip Art) and TYPE your child’s name at the bottom. Make the activities fun and challenging as you get involved with them.
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
“And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
“And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children,
and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house,
and when thou walkest by the way,
and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
Deuteronomy 6:4 – 7
“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever,
that we may do all the words of this law.”
“Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
“And that their children, which have not known any thing,
may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land
whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”

"And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves,
O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live,
and I shall place you in your own land:
then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it,
saith the LORD."
Words are written vertically and horizontally and some are truly challenging to find – maybe because some are written backwards or might have two words that take on two directions.
Only a good “eye” will enable you to find all the words. For neatness and legibility, you might want to use a single line to cross out each word found rather than circling it, and consider giving each player a different colored pencil.
Parents, you might want to copy the “Word Search” and take turns with your children to complete this puzzle. And to make the fun even more exciting, play with a one-minute timer, as you search for each word. If players cannot find their words within the allotted time, then it’s the next player’s turn and the unfound words can be used by the next player(s).
Reward one point per word found. Let the youngest child start first. Each player selects his/her own word, or the words can be written on small pieces of paper and randomly pulled (with eyes closed) from a bag or hat. To encourage vocabulary development, for certain words give one extra point to the children who can define their words. Parents will determine which words are to be defined.
NOW, see who can rack up the most points!
(By all means, do copy the puzzle and use the “Font Size” that suits your purpose.)
In the future, if Brothers and Sisters would like to create a “Word Search” of their own, I would be delighted to include it in the next JOURNAL. And even suggestions for a Word Search are always welcome.
HOW MUCH DO OUR CHILDREN KNOW
ABOUT THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL (THE CREATOR GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB),
THE HISTORY OF THE HEBREW ISRAELITES,
AND OUR RIGHTEOUS WAY OF LIFE?
“…God said moreover unto Moses,
Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever,
and this is my memorial unto all generations.”
"Gather the people together, men, and women, and children,
and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn,
and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
And that their children, which have not known any thing,
may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God,
as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it."
This added portion to The LawKeepers JOURNAL is to enlighten our children and provide parental/child interaction with regard to important events in the “Old Testament.” It is my hope that these questions will provide the means for parents and children to study Scripture and enjoy quality time together.
THE QUESTIONS ARENA IS FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS TO RESEARCH, REFLECT, AND DISCUSS TOGETHER:
QUESTIONS TEN 591 - 600: January / FEBRUARY2010 JOURNAL for ages ten (10) and above:
Why did the GOD of Israel tell Moses that he and Aaron could not bring the Congregation of Israel into the Land that HE had given to the Children of Israel?
What is the name of the place where Moses caused water to come from the Rock giving Glory to the Holy Name of the GOD of Israel?
Name the group of people, brother to the Israelites who would not allow Israel to pass through their country.
The GOD of Israel stripped Aaron of his garments and put them on whom?
In which Mount did Aaron die?
How many days did the Congregation mourn for Aaron?
When there was no bread or water, and the Israelites spoke against the GOD of Israel and Moses what was their punishment?
The Congregation asked Moses to pray to the GOD of Israel after they had spoken against HIM and Moses, when there was no bread or water. What did GOD tell Moses to do to end the deaths among the Congregation?
Why was Balak, the son of Zippor, King of the Moabites, in fear of the Children of Israel?
Why did Balak send for Balaam?
By all means, Parents and Children should feel free to respond and send answers to me for posting in the next LawKeepers’ JOURNAL. And do include your name, city, and state. By the way, the answers must be in the form of complete sentences. Afraqueen@AOL.COM
On one side of index cards, have children write individual questions, and on the other side write the answers to the questions. Just imagine how knowledgeable our children will be after researching for the answers to all these questions. CHILDREN SHOULD BE SURE TO TAKE THEIR ANSWERS FROM THE SCRIPTURES WITHOUT IMAGINING THEM and include the book, chapter, and verse where the answers were found. From time to time, they can shuffle the cards and go over the questions to see if they are able to recall the correct responses. This activity should not be a chore, but children should have fun with the questions and challenge their friends and siblings to see how much they know about the “Old Testament.” By the way, the numbers of the questions need not always be in order.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,
that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
CHILDREN’S SHORT STORY…
The following children’s story is for young brothers and sisters, five (5) and older to read with their parents…
(ON VACATION FOR A WHILE)
Please see previous JOURNALS for Children’s Stories.
Since starting to write Children’s stories for The LawKeepers JOURNAL, I have grown to love this task for they also Exalt Our Holy ONE of Israel, and they tell rose-colored stories in the process because, with GOD’s Blessings, we will indeed lead better and happier lives upon our return to our heritage. I believe this with all my heart! Then, we will enjoy the Righteous lifestyles that you read about in these stories and live in a tranquility, Peace, and Happiness that only the Holy ONE of Israel can bring to fruition. And accordingly, we will one day guard this utopia that will thrive in the LIGHT of GOD’s LAW, and we will eliminate those who threaten its existence. This won’t just be about FEARING the Holy ONE to follow HIS Ways, it will be about tasting a divine lifestyle and having it no other way.
All the children’s stories are posted on The LawKeepers Website. Each JOURNAL contains one Children's Story. The JOURNALS are posted at the following WebSite:

If you would like to contribute your short stories for our youth, please feel free to submit them for publication. The only requirement is that they are in accord with the teachings of the Most High CREATOR GOD of Abraham and Moses.
CLOSING SCRIPTURE EXALTING THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL:
"God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy:
for thou renderest to every man according to his work."
"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice."

MOTHERS WITH SONS IN PRISON
MWSIP (Mothers with sons in prison) is striving to embrace all mothers of different races, color, creed and nationalities worldwide to bridge the gap that separates them from their sons within the prison systems with unconditional love.
A Mother's Release Day
Freedom not only comes physically, but it originates from the heart. The anticipation of the release day for your son is also the release day for the mother. When your son goes into prison, you as his mother go in with him without even being aware of it until it's time for him to come out.
There's tons of unexpected emotions that happens when it gets near the release day for your son. You have occupied for the duration of his time that small little corner within the spiritual walls of that prison. A small voice from above speaks to you near that time and tells you "you can come out now".
Severe fear sets in and you find yourself glued to a placed that your hearts been in for the time he has been there. You fear you're leaving him! How can I come out and he's still there? The small voice speaks again..."you can come out now." the fear intensifys and you begin to cryin uncontrollably. Your inside screams... "I CANT' LEAVE HIM, I'M SCARED!" After forcefully shaking until your bones start to hurt, with a light that shines beside you, you step forward into the silhouette, and immediately, your son steps out behind you.
Joy unspeakable! You're at the finish line on your mark waiting for the green light, then waiting for the gun to go off to fly. A mixture of emotions starts from joy to gladness to anticipation to fear to being elated to just plain ole crazy inside.
You've been there for him every minute, everyday, even his day of release, you want to be there not realizing until it hits you that this is your release day too. Words will never be able to explain or capture that moment in your heart what you feel. You give up on trying to describe the feeling. You simply result to "just happy". Every minute is so special to you as well as him. All past events are just that, past events. They don't mean anything anymore.
The pain leaves your eyes; the wisdom sets in along with experience. Now the dove inside you and the eagle inside him is released-----GO FLY!!!!!!
A Mother's Day In Court
The first time I ever experienced screaming from the inside out. You're helpless. You've lost all control, the mercy lies on the court. But what can you do? This is the most helpless time you can experience. The Life of your child lays in someone else's hands, a total stranger. A person who has no knowledge of the heart of your son. It's like someone literally snatches a baby from your arms to do with him what they want to do with him. You can only scream from the inside out. Heart wrenching as it is, again, what can you do but beg for the mercy of the court. "Somebody's mercy, anybody's mercy"!
Everyone in the courtroom are strangers. They only know the crime and the crime knows them. But everyone, this place, this dream, you are unfamiliar with. All of the decisions without my permission come through the court.
What about my decision, my suggestion, my opinion or even my thoughts? This is my son! No body cares, nor do they want to hear them. All I want to do is take my boy home with me, but fate is not on my side this time. The worst day of my life was the day in court, because a part of me was taken away to a cold, unsafe, non-caring place of nowhere. Now my son is gone.
A Mother's Travel
The road to your left is the road of sorrow and grief. The road that veers off to your right is the road of heartbreak and pain. The road that goes toward the north, is the road of fear, the road that goes south is the road of unfamiliar. All these roads curve, twist, and turn.
They eventually end up merging into the one-way street that the mother travels during the entire time her son is in prison, which leads toward his heart. Roadblocks are in the millions all across these roads. Dead end streets are deceitful, because they are without warning. Where is the end of the road and when will I get there?
The end is there but is it near? Is the end of the road bright or is it dim? Who will judge that? Some roads are under construction, they take forever. Some have detours, which brings on confusion. Some are full of red lights. No matter where you travel to, to see your son, believe that there is an end to those long roads. The road will end in this world but never in your heart.
I traveled miles to visit my son and miles to be that voice on the outside for him, as well as support. You don't support the crime committed, you support the love for him. If I had to do it all over again, I would travel those same roads all over again. I would go down those same streets. It was the beginning of our destiny.

It’s a sad state of affairs to have to be one of these mothers. It’s even more of a poignant matter knowing that more often than not, the fathers of these boys are right there with their sons, strung out on drugs, or dead. But there is hope:
“Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.”
“I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee,
and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison,
and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”
Remember those incarcerated…contact them…encourage them in GOD’s Truth…T.Y. Editor
DON’T COUNT THE INCARCERATED BROTHERS AND SISTERS OUT!
In my last correspondence with Brother Malakim, he informed me that brothers, as young as sixteen years of age, are being incarcerated. He wants his freedom in order to counsel our youth. The following is what he wrote concerning this most poignant issue:
“…I want to do more because there are so many young children coming to prison now. They are locking them up at 16 years old now. They are building two more prisons, and they are not for me, because I’m already here. The young people should wake up and see what’s gong on, and I don’t understand why they will not do that.
I want to render myself to them because they do need someone to look up to.
The LORD GOD of this whole universe is so good to me. I have to do the right thing.”
It has been suggested that we get out to the prisons and befriend those in the jails [across the country] and, of course, give them reason to hope, for we know that Our Holy ONE of Israel can indeed obtain their release if they will turn to HIM and be obedient to HIS WORD.
“Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me?
lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.
“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant,
that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD,
and stay upon his God.
“Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks:
walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled.
This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.”
Isaiah 50:9 – 11
“Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them,
that ye may prosper in all that ye do.”
Turning to the CREATOR GOD couldn’t be more what prospering entails. And “obedience to HIM and to HIS LAW” is the pinnacle of success - not the imaginations of our hearts that will in the end only prove to cause us great pain and suffering. What we “think” would be the last thing the incarcerated would need to hear, and they’d probably see through it anyway.
Should you take the time to visit with them, PLEASE, PLEASE show these Brothers GOD’s Way of Life, and share the reasons for our downfall with them and what Our CREATOR requires that we do to rise out of this Hell.

Sister Naami has noted they are all in need of written materials including Bibles and Tanakhs. However, please write to them first to find out if there are any special instructions for sending them packages. And even if you have no packages to send, write to them encouraging messages to ease their burden of confinement.

Subject: Urgent Need for Yisraelite Leaders and Teachers
Thank you for your inquiry. I am responding to you and to all Yisraelite leaders and teachers.
There is indeed an urgent need for teachers and leadership at area prisons. At this time, however, I do not have any inmates that I am corresponding with at an Ohio prison. If you do know of any incarcerated in Ohio, I would be happy to add them to our newsletter mailing list.
To provide some background, my name is Peninnah Baht Zion. I am the Director of Daughters of Zion, Inc. and editor of the Beth OR prison newsletter. We publish a monthly newsletter and provide tanahks and other Yisraelite publications for them.
We have been publishing the newsletter for a little over a year now and the one theme that is always expressed by the inmates is the need for leadership.
The inmates who are reaching out to us are dedicated men, who have by some unfortunate turn of events found themselves in the belly of the beast.
I know from their correspondence that it is a hard life, especially for adherent Yisraelites.
The brothers and sisters are striving against insurmountable odds to keep the laws of Yah in captivity within captivity.
Struggles with dietary issues and the need for instruction are major concerns. They need local advocates to assist them.
They need leadership to stay strong in prison. Christian and Muslim organizations are strong in the prisons. However, the Yisraelite population has no organizational structure to influence and advocate for them. This is primarily because, thank Yah, their numbers are very small.
Listed above is a contact person for each of the facilities that we are in communication with. If your camp is located near one of these prisons, please arrange a visit to teach a group. They would be happy to receive instruction for one day, one week, or one hour a month.
Please respond if you can help.
