New Revelations About Slaves and The Slave Trade

 

By David Eltis and David Richardson, Special to CNN

January 5, 2011 9:01 a.m. EST

 

Editor's note: David Eltis and David Richardson are co-authors of the "Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade." Eltis is Robert W. Woodruff professor of history at Emory University and co-editor of the Transatlantic Slave Trade database. Richardson is the director of the Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation at the University of Hull, England.

 

(CNN) -- Most students of American history understand that a dramatic re-peopling of North and South America began in the years after Christopher Columbus first landed in the New World. But they may not realize that it was Africa, not Europe, that formed the wellspring of this re-population process.

 

In the 3¼ centuries between 1492 and about 1820, four enslaved Africans left the Old World for every European. During those years, Africans comprised the largest forced oceanic migration in the history of the world. Who were they? Who organized the slaving voyages? Which parts of Africa did they come from? How did they reach the Americas? And where exactly did they go?

 

Strikingly, we can now provide better answers to such questions for Africans than we can for European migrants. The African slave trade reduced people to commodities, but commodities generated profits, and where there were profits there was generally good record-keeping.

 

Since the onset of the computer revolution in the early 1960s, early modern business and government records have allowed historians to retrieve information on 35,000 slave voyages from Africa to the Americas and make the information available on the internet. For many of these voyages, we have rich detail on the slave ship itineraries, as well as who was put on board, who survived and how they traveled.

 

A new "Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade" draws on five decades of research in archives around the north and south Atlantic to provide 189 detailed and sumptuously drawn maps that answer many questions.

 

These maps show that almost every port in the early modern Atlantic world organized and sent out a slave voyage, and that the bigger the port, the greater the number it sent out.

 

Such ubiquity suggests that before the abolitionist era, there was no moral outrage or public disgrace associated with trading in African slaves. The maps also show that almost half of all voyages were organized and set out from the Americas, not Europe. As a result, bilateral (that is out and return) itineraries were almost as common as the famous "triangular voyage" pattern based on voyages dispatched from Europe.

 

Within the United States, we now know that slave voyages left from almost every port and that although Rhode Island might be well-known as a slave trading region, it was far from synonymous with the U.S. slave trade. New York and Charleston, South Carolina, were also major centers.

 

A profile of those on board ship as well as the conditions to which they were subjected also emerges from the pages of the Atlas. Thus, Samuel Adjai Crowther, liberated from a slave ship as a child in 1821, became the first Anglican African bishop and was largely responsible for creating the first written version of the Yoruba language. Remarkably, he married Asano, whom he had first met as a girl on the slave ship from which they were both rescued.

 

The Atlas also contains the story of Mahommah G. Baquaqua, who was enslaved probably in what is now western Nigeria in 1845 as a 20-year old. He was first taken to Recife in Brazil, and after a ship's captain purchased him in Rio de Janeiro, he was taken to New York where he escaped, fled to Haiti, and after returning to New York to study and then moving to Canada, he wrote his autobiography.

 

For most there was no escape. As another captive, Ottobah Cuguano, wrote in 1787 in his own narrative, "the misery of that of any of the inhabitants of Africa meet with among themselves is far inferior to those of the inhospitable regions of misery which they meet with in the West Indies, where their hard-hearted overseers have neither regard to the laws of God, nor the life of their fellow men."

 

Some of the survivors lived on into the age of photography. Photographs of Crowther as well Cudjoe and Abache Lewis, who arrived on the last slave vessel to come into the US (the Clotilde in 1860) are displayed among the maps along with stories and paintings of some of their 18th century predecessors, such as Venture Smith and Phillis Wheatley.

 

The Atlas also charts more general patterns among captives such as their age and sex and, for two regions, evidence of ethno linguistic origins. The maps show that both mortality and voyage length in days declined over the slave trade era, but, as with ports in Europe from which free migrants left, risk of death was persistently greater from some regions of departure than from others. Captives leaving from what is now eastern Nigeria were particularly at risk with, on average, almost one fifth of those embarked dying on the Middle Passage.

 

But the major contribution of the Atlas is to make it clear that the slave trade was not a random process. Systematic connections between Africa and the Americas can be tracked in the same way that people have been doing for years between Europe and the Americas.

 

Particular ports and regions in Africa were linked via winds, currents and political circumstances with particular islands, regions and ports in the Americas. For example, Angola supplied four out of every five captives in the very large branch of the trade that went to the southern cone region of South America (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay). The United States drew a larger proportion of its slaves from Senegambia south to Liberia than any other region in the Americas. And Amazonia drew almost all of its captives from what is now Guinea-Conakry.

 

Where a given part of the Americas drew on a number of African regions, it tended to do so in sequence. Thus Jamaica drew heavily on what is now Ghana and Benin in the 17th century before switching to first eastern Nigeria and then northern Angola and the Congo region. Such transatlantic links bear an uncanny resemblance to the patterns established by free migrants leaving Europe for the Americas.

Finally, the Atlas shows that the Atlantic slave trade remained strong until it was suppressed. Like the institution of slavery, the traffic that supplied captives did not die a natural economic death. The maps establish that in all the major importing areas of the Americas, the volume of the traffic peaked in the years just before its suppression. This pattern held for Brazil, the United States, and the British Americas as a whole.

 

It is becoming commonplace to claim that there are more slaves in the world today than ever and that large-scale trafficking in people continues. The "Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade" suggests that such claims tend to obscure the horrors -- unique in human history -- of the Middle Passage from Africa to the Americas. It is indeed hard to imagine circumstances in which any parallel to the transatlantic slave trade could ever happen again.

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.”

Isaiah 66:22,23

START THE NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF

 

<<< JANUARY 5,6,7, 2011 >>>

 

BY LOOKING IN THE “WEST” JUST ABOVE THE HORIZON.

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons…”

Psalm 104:19

 

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.”  

Numbers 10:10

 

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.”  

Exodus 31:17,18

 

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”

Exodus 20:8

 

 

“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 “HolySeventh Day Sabbath.

QUESTIONS ON “OLD TESTAMENT” BIBLE TRIVIA TO PONDER:

 

QUESTIONS TWO:

 

“And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.”   Isaiah 13:11,12

 

What does the Holy ONE of Israel mean when HE says, “I will make a man more precious than fine gold”?

 

***

 

“And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”   Genesis 26:4,5

 

What is meant by, “In thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed”?

 

Q AND A (QUESTION AND ANSWER):

 

Can you think of a time in the past or present involving any situation or anyone, Israelite or Gentile, whereby, GOD’s Righteousness was employed to work evil?

 

When this thought first came to me, I was and still am at a loss as to how any of GOD’s Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments can be used to commit wickedness.  Thus, I must admit that this has to be impossible.  I know that water and oil do not mix, and so also GOD’s Ways of Righteousness cannot mix with sin, iniquity, malice, evil, and/or any manner of wickedness.  Thus, the reason GOD’s Ways of Righteousness are indeed “Holy”.

 

“The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.”   Psalm 145:17

 

“…what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?”   Deuteronomy 4:8

 

“With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

 

Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.”   Isaiah 26:9,10

 

“Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.”   Isaiah 45:8

 

When the Slave Masters converted the Blacks out of Africa to their religion, they employed Christianity, and even the so-called “Jews” used the teachings in the “New Testament”.  Had the powers-that-be taught the Slaves to Trust in the CREATOR GOD and live by HIS LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets, the Slaves would not have prayed to the man-god, JC, and that manner of conversion would have ended their enslavement.

 

The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.”   Psalm 34:17

 

“The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.”   Psalm 14:2 - 5

 

“O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.”   Isaiah 26:13 

 

Let us not break the LAW of the Holy ONE of Israel and assume that HE will still be with us, because that is not the case.  The Holy ONE of Israel does not wrest Judgment.  Lawbreakers will face the consequences.

 

“Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.”   Deuteronomy 16:19

 

“…I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.”   Isaiah 61:8

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.

600,000 die each year from passive smoking: study

By Marlowe Hood (AFP) – Nov 25, 2010

PARIS — Second-hand tobacco smoke kills upward of 600,000 people every year, nearly a third of them children, according to a first-ever global assessment released Friday.

Unlike "lifestyle" diseases, which stem largely from individual choice, the victims of passive smoking pay the ultimate price for the health-wrecking behaviour of others, especially family members.

Among non-smokers worldwide, 40 percent of children, 35 percent of women and 33 percent of men were exposed to second-hand smoke in 2004, the most recent year for which data was available across the 192 countries examined.

When added to the 5.1 million fatalities attributable to active smoking, the final death toll from tobacco for 2004 was more than 5.7 million people, the study concluded.

Nearly half the passive-smoking deaths occurred in women, with the rest divided almost equally between children and men, said the study, published in the British medical journal The Lancet.

Some 60 percent were caused by heart disease and 30 percent by lower respiratory infections, followed by asthma and lung cancer.

All told, passive smoking accounted for fully one percent of worldwide mortality in 2004.

Adult deaths caused by second-hand tobacco were spread evenly across the spectrum of poor-to-rich nations.

But for children, poverty made things much worse, the study found.

The adult-to-child ratio of fatalities in high-income Europe, for example, was 35,388 to 71.

The ratio in Africa was nearly reversed: 9,514 to 43,375.

"Children's exposure to second-hand smoke most likely happens at home," the researchers noted. "Infectious diseases and tobacco seems to be a deadly combination."

The tragedy of children felled by others' smoke is even greater when calculated in years of life lost, rather than lives lost.

One reason twice as many non-smoking women die is simply because they outnumber their male counterparts by 60 percent.

But they are also, in the developing world, 50 percent more likely to be exposed to harmful smoke.

Passing and enforcing smoke-free laws for public spaces could significantly reduce passive smoking mortality and health care costs, said lead researcher Annette Pruss-Ustun.

Currently, only a small fraction -- 7.4 percent -- of the world population lives in areas with serious smoke-free laws, and even in these jurisdictions compliance is spotty.

Where laws are enforced, exposure to second-hand smoke in high-risk settings such as bars and restaurants is cut by 90 percent, earlier research has shown.

Anti-smoking regulations also lower cigarette consumption, and improve one's chances of kicking the habit.

The researchers recommend fully applying the World Health Organisation's (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, which includes tobacco tax hikes, advertising bans, and the use of nondescript packaging.

"There can be no question that the 1.2 billion smokers in the world are exposing billions of non-smokers to second-hand smoke, a disease-causing indoor pollutant," note Heather Wipfli and Jonathan Samet of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

"Broad initiatives are needed to motivate families to put their own policies into place to reduce exposure ... at home," they say in a commentary, also in The Lancet.

Dangerous Objectives for Mass Vaccinations in 2011

As you embark on the New Year, please consider the following:

 

Meanwhile, laws are being enacted by state governments to abolish parental consent for vaccinations---under the auspices of preventing sexually-transmissible diseases.


Toxic HPV, hepatitis B, and soon-to-be AIDS vaccines are destined to be administered to all children under 18 years old without PARENTAL CONSENT!

 

Is Your Newborn, Toddler or Teenager in Danger?

FREE eBOOK! The Case Against Hepatitis B Vaccination: Prevent Your Newborns & Infants from Being Permanently Injured, by Kevin A. MuhammadHep B


How did the hepatitis B vaccine come to be federally "recommended" and administered to newborns in hospitals, clinics, and birthing centers throughout America?  Fraudulent health statistics had a key role. It opened the door for herded or widespread vaccination. Who did the lying?


The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is primarily responsible for the numerous vaccines being injected into infants, teenagers and adults throughout America.
A mere 15 people (so-called experts in fields associated with immunization) makeup ACIP. This committee makes recommendations for mass vaccinations. Perhaps the most disturbing reality is that the decisions of a mere 15 people affect the lives of 300 million U.S. citizens. They have more power than the U.S. Congress. Even more alarming is that these persons have ties to the pharmaceutical-controlled medical industry.

The CDC's Diabolical Vaccination Schedule for Children

FREE CHAPTER from the book, Against Compulsory Vaccination (Vol. 2), by Kevin A. Muhammad

ACV_2

The CDC recommends that children between the ages of 0 and 6 years old receive more than 50 vaccines (35 before they are 2 years old). Can you believe this?

 

Through enforcement by state governments, the bodies of millions of children are being saturated with "secretive" genetically-engineered pathogenic substances that come from different species of animals and insects; industrial chemicals; other types of chemicals; various kinds of drugs; and neurotoxic metals, such as aluminum and mecury. This destroys their human potential and puts them on the path to chronic disease and early mortality.

A Common-Sense Analysis of "No Parental Consent Required" Vaccination Laws Proposed and Enacted by State Governments
A FREE 40-page Investigative Report by Kevin A. Muhammad

Laws are being proposed by state legislatures that allow children to be vaccinated and medicated without the consent of their parents---under the auspices of preventing sexually-transmissible diseases.


Neither will parents know that their children were vaccinated. In addition, parents will be responsible for injuries suffered by their children, as a result of these medications and vaccines
.

 

HIV vaccines are destined to enter the market, and will automatically be administered to all children when these laws are enacted. How many parents want their children infected with HIV viruses through
vaccinations?

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!

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

EDITORIAL  PERSPECTIVE:

 

DETERMINE A GOD BY

HIS CREATIONS

HIS POWER

HIS ACTS

HIS JUDGMENTS

HIS WORD

HIS MERCY

 

“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound:

they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.

In thy name shall they rejoice all the day:

and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.

For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.”

Psalm 89:13,14

 

“Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,

we should have been as Sodom,

and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.”

Isaiah 1:9

 

“I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever:

with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.”

Psalm 89:1

 

December 15, 2010

 

Determine a GOD by HIS Creations, Power, Acts, Judgments, and HIS WORD.  If one’s god has made no Creations, but was itself made by man, then it is no god.  If one’s god does not demonstrate Power and other Acts of authority, then it is no god.  If one’s god cannot pass Judgment upon one’s enemies, then its word is proved fictitious, and it cannot be a god.  If one’s god cannot show Mercy and save out of captivity and out of the hands of one’s enemy, then it is not a god!  The one time that JC had the chance to prove himself worthy of worship, i.e., if he were a god was during the Slave Trade.  After all, this is the man-god the Massas gave their Slaves to believe in.  And for more than 300 years of enslavement they called upon him, and he did nothing to save them out of their cruel and barbaric bondage and savage injustices and prejudices that sustained them the underclass peoples of the world.

However, when you choose the True and Living CREATOR GOD, then nothing is greater than this feeling of assurance, satisfaction, consolation, and protection when realizing you worship the Most High GOD of Heaven and Earth, and that formed man and all things Created in the waters and on land.  Knowing this GOD and knowing that HE knows you, also, is not a wonder but is GOD’s Plan for all human beings (Israelites and the Stranger) in order that all peoples of the Earth will FEAR HIM and be obedient to HIS WORD and HIS Ways of Righteousness.

 

“O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.”   Isaiah 26:13

 

“For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.”   Isaiah 66:18

 

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”   Psalm 118:8

 

“Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.”   Psalm 118:26

 

“Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”   Psalm 118:28,29

 

“Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah. Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.”   Psalm 50:5 – 7

 

“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”   Isaiah 25:8,9

 

“For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.”   Isaiah 33:22

 

“Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.”   Jeremiah 30:10

 

“But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.”   Jeremiah 46:27

 

“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.”   Hosea 13:14

 

Christians do not have the satisfaction and splendor of having this Great GOD.  They look to and believe in a “man” and believe that he is the one who saves them and who will enable them to go to GOD’s Heaven.  Wisdom is knowing that none of these beliefs are supported by GOD’s WORD at the mouth of HIS Ministers the Levitical Priests, HIS Prophets, or HIS Angels.  Christians know their prayers are not answered by this “man”, but they flatly refuse to abandon him.

 

JC,

WORSHIPPED BY MANY

BUT TO NO AVAIL

HE SAVES NOT ANY!

 

“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

 

They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.

 

They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place,

and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him,

yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.”

Isaiah 46:5 – 7

 

***

 

“Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:

And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”

Psalm 50:14,15

 

“Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me:

and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.”

Psalm 50:22,23

 

“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD,

in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day:

and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength:

and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. For the LORD is our defence;

and the Holy One of Israel is our king.”

Psalm 89 15 - 18

 

Nevertheless, not only do Christians believe in this “man” JC, but they also believe that he makes up the “us”, i.e., GOD and JC, in “Let us make man in our image”.  Nothing could be more ridiculous.  In the BEGINNING, even before man was formed and before JC was ever imagined (by man) to have been born and in the minds of wicked men, he supposedly helped the All-Mighty CREATOR GOD.  WOW, here we have a man, not yet born, and he exists in the BEGINNING to help the CREATOR GOD, nonetheless.   MY question is why is it that JC sat back in the cut and only came forward supposedly to help with making man, the last of all things Created?  Why just man?  Why not help with all the Creations?  And why didn’t the CREATOR give JC any credit in this CREATION? 

 

“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”   Genesis 1:31

 

The Truth of the matter is that by GOD being the All-Mighty and the CREATOR of all things, HE needs no help from anyone, and most certainly not JC whom HE never once singled out  for a task or defined him a Prophet, a Priest, an Angel, or anything, period.  GOD not only Created the Heavens and the Earth all by HIMSELF, but HE did so with the BREATH OF HIS MOUTH!

 

“For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.”   Psalm 33:4 – 6

 

Nevertheless, the point I want to expound upon is in reference to a question:

 

If GOD had JC to help HIM make man, why didn’t HE also employ JC to help in other matters? Instead of using HIS Angels to go to Abraham and to Lot, if JC is what he’s cracked up to be, he could have gone?  Why didn’t GOD have JC bring the Children of Israel out of Egypt, instead of sending Moses?  Why didn’t the GOD of Israel have JC prove to the prophets of Baal that the GOD of Israel is GOD rather than HIS Prophet Elijah?  If JC is all he is cracked up to be, then why didn’t the GOD of Israel choose him and not Ezekiel to see the visions of the New Temple (Ezekiel 41st and 42nd Chapters)?  And perhaps the most definitive question of all is why didn’t the CREATOR have JC prophesy to HIS People, the Children of Israel, instead of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and all the other prophets?  Of questions concerning JC, we should know that there is no good reason to sing and magnify him instead of the CREATOR GOD. 

 

Of a Truth, it would appear that the CREATOR really had no knowledge of JC.  Reason being, GOD’s Book of the Law that HE wants HIS Covenant People to live and do makes no mention of JC nor does the GOD of Israel ever introduce him to HIS People the Children of Israel. 

 

What we do know is that the CREATOR GOD doesn’t want people magnifying JC, because HE has Commanded that we worship no other god and that HE is a JEALOUS GOD whose Holy Name is JEALOUS.  Furthermore, the CREATOR GOD of Israel left no stone unturned when it came to worship of ONLY HIM.  And for our examination, we can see that the “New Testament” is replete with passages about people “worshipping JC”, but which Christians and Messianics are paying attention?

 

The Most High GOD of Hosts wrote for us and all the world the FIRST COMMANDMENT:

 

“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. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”   Exodus 20:1 – 5

 

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”   Exodus 34:14

 

Now, these verses make sense – even all the sense in the world.  The CREATOR implanted worship of ONLY HIM in every aspect of HIS Way of Life:  HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses to teach to the Children of Israel.

 

“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

 

“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

 

And this Great and All-MIGHTY GOD even wants all the GLORY:

 

“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”   Isaiah 42:8

 

Let us not forget that it was the CREATOR GOD of Israel that chose for HIMSELF the seed of Zadok from the Tribe of Levi to Minister before HIM and only in HIS Holy City Jerusalem in the Land of Israel, which is where all HIS Covenant People must go to worship HIM on HIS designated Holy Days. 

 

“…take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office…”   Exodus 28:1

 

“And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them. And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy place.”   Exodus 29:29,30

 

“And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office. And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God. 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.”   Exodus 29:44 – 46

 

“…the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel went astray, which went astray away from me after their idols; they shall even bear their iniquity. Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister unto them. Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall bear their iniquity. And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed. But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein. But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:”   Ezekiel 44:10 – 15

 

As we can see, the CREATOR GOD of Israel chose and set up HIS own Ministers, and it was not every Tom, Dick, Harry, and Jane who chose to preach and teach before HIS People and the world, and it most certainly could not have been JC, either.  All Ministers, Kings, Governors, and Prophets had to be born of the Children of Israel.

 

“I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”   Deuteronomy 18:18.19

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; 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. And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.”   Jeremiah 30:18 - 22

 

“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”   Isaiah 43:21

 

Again, it would appear that the CREATOR GOD had no knowledge of JC, the man allegedly born of a “virgin”!

 

“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.

 

But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.”   Deuteronomy 12:1,5 – 7

 

Even King Solomon’s Temple was for the GLORY, FAME, and PRAISE of the GOD of Israel and HIS Holy Name.

 

“…it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel. And the LORD said unto David my father, Whereas it was in thine heart to build an house unto my name, thou didst well that it was in thine heart. Nevertheless thou shalt not build the house; but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name. And the LORD hath performed his word that he spake, and I am risen up in the room of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.”   I Kings 8:17 – 20

 

“For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things.”   Ezekiel 20:40

 

Thus far, given all GOD’s WORD presented herewith, there is no suggestion of the existence of a “man” called JC nor the likes of any man in the Hebrew Scriptures like him.  So why is it that two billion people worship him, given that the CREATOR GOD shows no indication or knowledge of him or affinity to him.  Does it not hold merit that the GOD of Israel said HE will not give HIS GLORY to another? 

 

“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”   Isaiah 42:8

 

And given that it is the CREATOR GOD that manifests all the Power and Judgment and only wants people to worship HIM, doesn’t it make sense that to imagine another god who has not been proved as such is not only abomination but is knowingly believing a lie and allowing oneself to be deceived? 

 

What bears more Truth and more authority:  Is it GOD’s WORD in HIS Book of the Law, or is it man’s so-called “inspired” word in the “New Testament” that contradicts GOD and HIS Commandments in the “Old Testament”, nonetheless?  The answer is obvious.  But just in case there is not enough facts supporting Truth provided thus far, the following Hebrew Scriptures, are completely oblivious of JC and his teachings, and thus totally dismiss the mere thought of him being a JC man-god:

 

WHERE ARE THE LIKES OF THIS “MAN” CALLED JC IN THIS MIX?

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses…

 

“… in very deed for this cause

have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power;

and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.”

Exodus 9:13,16

 

“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.”

Isaiah 43:10,11

 

“Put me in remembrance: let us plead together:

declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”

Isaiah 43:26

 

“Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts;

I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”

Isaiah 44:6

 

People want to believe in JC, but to their chagrin, their man-god of a supposed “Trinity” cannot even be compared to King David or to his seed, Solomon, and much less to the CREATOR GOD.  The Children of Israel were compelled to live according to absolute worship of the GOD of Israel and by HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments.  So, where can the worship of JC be found in this mix?

 

King David’s word to his son, Solomon:

 

“…keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.”   I Kings 2:3,4

 

GOD’s WORD to Solomon:

 

“And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.”   I Kings 3:14

 

“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.”   Psalm 119:1

 

“Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

 

Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.”   Isaiah 26:4,8

 

-       GOD Created the Heavens and the Earth and Commanded that there be no other god before HIM.

 

“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

 

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”   Psalm 121:1,2

 

“Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

 

Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.”   Isaiah 26:4,8

 

“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;”   Isaiah 44:24

 

“Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.”   Isaiah 45:8

 

“I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”   Isaiah 45:23

 

“Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.”   Nehemiah 9:6

 

“…the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.”   Psalm 89:5 – 7

 

NO ONE, not even JC, has been able to invent a Universe and all things as has the CREATOR GOD of Israel.  

 

“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?”   Isaiah 46:5

 

-       GOD said HE is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and made an Everlasting Covenant with them and their SEED.

 

“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.”   Genesis 17:7,8

 

“He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.”   Genesis 17:13

 

“And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.”   Genesis 17:19

 

“…Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:”   Exodus 4:22

 

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.”   Leviticus 18:2

 

“He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant, Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;”   I Chronicles 16:14 - 18

 

This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”   Isaiah 43:21

 

 

“Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.”   Isaiah 46:3,4

 

“For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.”   Isaiah 54:5

 

-       It was the GOD of Israel that DELIVERED the Nation of Israel out of Egypt, that punished them, and that will DELIVER them out of all lands where HE scattered them for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.”   Isaiah 48:9 - 11

 

“But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen, among whom they were, in whose sight I made myself known unto them, in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.”   Ezekiel 20:9

 

“But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen, in whose sight I brought them out.”   Ezekiel 20:14

 

“And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers. And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.”   Ezekiel 20:42 – 44

 

“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.”   Ezekiel 36:20 - 28

 

-       GOD gave the Israelites the Land of Canaan, a Land flowing with Milk and Honey.

 

“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.”   Genesis 13:15 – 17

 

“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.”   Genesis 17:7,8

 

“And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.”   Exodus 3:7,8

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:”   Exodus 33:1

 

“Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.”   Deuteronomy 1:8

 

“And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.”   Deuteronomy 34:4

 

“…Stand up and bless the LORD your God for ever and ever: and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.

 

Thou art the LORD the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham; And foundest his heart faithful before thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and hast performed thy words; for thou art righteous:”   Nehemiah 9:5,7,8

 

“When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;”   Deuteronomy 8:10 -14

 

-       GOD said HE is the SAVIOR, and that the Children of Israel are HIS Witnesses.  They saw HIS WORKS in Egypt and in the Wilderness and can attest to GOD’s love for the Nation of Israel and attest to HIS Judgments upon the evil and the wicked.  For these reasons, only the Children of Israel can be called GOD’s Witnesses. 

 

“And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.”   Exodus 14:31

 

“Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.”   Exodus 24:9,10

 

“And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.”   Judges 2:7

 

“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.  I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.”   Isaiah 43:10 – 12

 

WHAT OTHER PEOPLES UPON THIS EARTH HAVE BEEN WITNESS TO THE GOD OF ISRAEL’S GREAT ACTS AND WORKS BUT HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE – THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL?!

 

-       GOD chose Jerusalem for HIS Holy Name’s Sake and the place for HIS worship.

 

“But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.”   Deuteronomy 12:5 – 7

 

“Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD: And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you.”   Deuteronomy 12:11,12

 

“But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.”   Nehemiah 1:9

 

“…the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.

 

“…God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:”   II Chronicles 33:4,7

 

-       GOD said, thou shalt know no god but ME and to worship ONLY HIM.

 

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”   Exodus 20:4,5

 

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”   Exodus 34:14

 

“Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.”   Deuteronomy 4:23,24

 

JUST HOW SERIOUS IS THE GOD OF ISRAEL ABOUT HIS COVENANT PEOPLE SERVING AND WORSHIPPING OTHER GODS?  The following passage speaks volumes concerning this most important matter.

 

“If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.”   Deuteronomy 13:6 - 9

 

“Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.”   Joshua 24:23

 

“Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.”   Hosea 12:6

 

“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.”   Hosea 13:4

 

“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.”   Hosea 13:9

 

-       GOD gave HIS Servant and Prophet Moses HIS LAW to teach to the Children of Israel.

 

“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

 

“These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.”   Numbers 36:13

 

“Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.”   Deuteronomy 8:6

 

“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

 

Just as our forefathers were told that they must live according to GOD’s Righteous Way of Life (HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments) before they entered into the Land of Canaan, so also are we now in this same situation.  Therefore, it is paramount that we accept the GOD of Israel’s conditions to live according to HIS Ways if we want to return and live in HIS Holy Land in HIS Peace and in HIS Happiness that has so long time eluded us.

 

“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.”   Deuteronomy 8:1

 

“Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 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 shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”   Joshua 1:6 - 9

 

 

-       GOD said to FEAR HIM and Keep HIS Commandments and cleave to HIM.

 

“That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

 

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 6:2,5 - 7

 

“Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.”   Deuteronomy 8:5,6

 

“Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.”   Deuteronomy 13:4

 

“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. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods.”   II Kings 17:36 - 38

 

-       GOD said forsake HIM and HIS LAW and be scattered from the Land of Israel and bring destruction upon it.

 

“Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger? Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt: For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them: And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book: And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.”   Deuteronomy 29:24 – 28

 

“But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!”   Deuteronomy 32:15 – 29

 

“And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city? Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.”   Jeremiah 22:8,9

 

-       GOD, the MERCIFUL, SAVES the Israelites and said that it is HE that blots out sin.

 

“Thou art the LORD the God,

 

“…many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands. Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God.”   Nehemiah 9:7,30,31

 

“Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

 

We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea. Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.”   Psalm 106:1 – 3,6 - 8

 

“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.”   Isaiah 43:25

 

“I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.”   Isaiah 44:22

 

“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”   Jeremiah 31:34

 

“And I will bring Israel again to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead. In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.”   Jeremiah 50:19,20

 

O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity. Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips. Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy. I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

 

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.”   Hosea 14:1 – 4,9

 

-       GOD said HE would cause the Children of Israel to return to their heritage.

 

“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. And fields shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans. Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south: for I will cause their captivity to return, saith the LORD.”   Jeremiah 32:37 - 44

 

“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.”   Ezekiel 20:34

 

“And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: 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 13:8,9

 

-       GOD to put HIS LAW in the hearts of HIS Covenant People and forgive them for their sin.

 

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”   Jeremiah 31:31 - 34

 

“…I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.”   Jeremiah 33:7 – 9

 

“Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”   Isaiah 26:2,3

 

“(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. For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it? Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;”   Deuteronomy 4:31 - 37

 

-       GOD to cause the Branch of Jesse, David, to return and reign in Jerusalem.

 

“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

 

“I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.”   Psalm 89:3,4

 

“I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.”   Psalm 89:20 – 28

 

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.”   Jeremiah 23:5

 

-       The Nations are to Exalt the CREATOR GOD of Israel.

 

“The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 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. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”   Isaiah 2:1 – 4

 

“I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”   Isaiah 45:23

 

“For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles. And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.”   Isaiah 66:18 – 20

 

“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

 

“Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.”   Zechariah 8:22

 

“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.”   Malachi 1:11

 

-       GOD said HE will establish a New Heaven and a New Earth and HIS Covenant People.

 

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.”   Isaiah 65:17 - 19

 

“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

 

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.”   Jeremiah 33:14 - 16

 

“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 28:26

 

“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 34:26 - 31

 

“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.”   Zechariah 14:9 - 11

 

In these Hebrew Scriptures we have seen the WORD of the CREATOR GOD, and we have read about manifestations of HIS WORKS, POWER, ACTS, JUDGMENTS, and MERCY towards HIS People the Children of Israel.  In these passages, the CREATOR GOD provides no evidence of the teachings of the Christian theology – ONLY HIS WORD, HIS LAW, and CONSEQUENCES for rejecting HIM (for other gods) and HIS Ways of Righteousness.

 

From these Hebrew Scriptures wherein is the WORD of the CREATOR GOD, we should realize by now that we must all, Israelite and Gentile, turn to this Most High CREATOR GOD during these latter days that HE is calling attention to HIMSELF or experience HIS Judgments and HIS Wrath.  We cannot straddle the fence.  We have no choice but to decide to accept and live according to the CREATOR GOD’s Truth or by man’s imaginations – the works of the “New Testament” that magnifies and worships the JC man-god, and that would include all other false theologies that influence people to bow to images, idols and countless other false gods.  These gods did not Create the Heavens and the Earth, therefore, they cannot be gods.

 

“Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel,

which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God,

even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.”

II Kings 19:15

 

“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,

Deuteronomy 6:4 - 7

 

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else;

I am God, and there is none like me,

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying,

My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country:

yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:

I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry:

and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.”

Isaiah 46:9 – 13

THE NEW ADDITION TO THE LAWKEEPERS, CO.

TELLING HER STORY

 

O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Deuteronomy 5:29


I must say I find this somewhat difficult - not because I have nothing to say but because my writings have been a personal outlet for me.  I will say that I have been searching all my life for something that was missing.  Even as a child I cried myself to sleep begging something or someone to take me home, I had understanding that the house I was in and the bed that I woke up in was not where I belonged. 


As I grew and entered into the first grade I joined The Good News Club, and they would pick me up on Sundays for Sunday School.  Now I know that this must seem trivial to most, but I grew up in a home with Mother and Grandmother and they were agnostic.  They had no understanding of the Most High and stated many times that hell was here on earth, and we were all in hell.  I went on to study with the Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Holy Rollers, Pentecostal, Baptist, Southern Baptist, Holiness, Jehovah's Witness, Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Hare Krishna, and finally with The World Wide Church of God at the age of 20.


It was during my time with the World Wide Church of God that I was introduced to the idea of a 7th day Sabbath and the Holy Days versus the Holidays. Many years had passed and I had observed many things in the Church that didn't seem righteous.  I found there were many cliques, many people that weren't the right color, or didn't drive the right car, or didn't have the right clothes were excluded or even ridiculed.  I left the church after many years of watching people being mistreated by our so-called righteous leaders. 


Long story short, I went through a rebellious time in my adult life shortly after my marriage ended.  Drinking, partying, I wasn't the kind of example that I wanted to be but had no strength to avoid it, I was weak.


I met a man one night at the Elks club little did I know he would be very instrumental in changing my life.  He opened the book for me and introduced me to the name of the Most High, and he sparked an interest in me that would set me on fire for the Most High God of Yisra'el.  I became more amazed as I read every chapter in every book.  When I discovered that Abraham was a Hebrew and not a white supremacist I was overjoyed that all my suspicions were right. I read Deut 28 and wept because I knew who they were and who I was, and finally I fit. The Bible became alive for me, it wasn't that book of death and condemnation all those other church pastors preached. It was a book of life and for the first time in my life I had direction, structure, Laws, Holy days, Sabbath days that made sense. I found I had a conscience and inner strength I never knew existed in me.  I had the strength to get a job, move my children to a better home, and provide a safe environment.  Most importantly I was joyful and happy on the inside.  I could leave all that negativity behind and press forward. 


The Most High brought me out of the depths of my own hell and showed me a better way - a new way.  I've lost a lot of people and things along the way that would have driven any worldly man over the edge, and through it all HE saved me out alive.  HE has shown great mercy towards me and my family.  Today my daughters are students of the Law and finding their way, my son is still running but we know you can run but you can't hide. 

 

This is my story, and if it weren't for the Most Holy One of Yisra'El I wouldn't be here today.  As I reach older years I have found that Most High is all I have, with all that has been stripped away I find that which has been restored is so much more.


One love brothers and sisters.

THE WEATHER

 

If not snow, it was floods somewhere all over the world wreaking havoc, killing folks, and causing major upsets in world economies to the tune of billions of dollars.  The East Coast of the United States and Great Britain were paralyzed from three feet and more of snow.  In some places, planes could not fly in or out due to the snow and ice.  Airports had people stranded for days with thousands of cancellations.  Watching Australia’s flooded Queensland reminds me of New Orlean’s Katrina, and it is not over yet.  From the flooding, Queenslanders have to fear poisonous snakes and crocodiles and stinking sewer waters in and around this residential area.  Can you imagine what these people must be experiencing and knowing that these hundreds of flooded homes are now fit for demolition (just like the homes left from Katrina).

 

GOD’s Mighty Hand sends Messages loud and clear, but is anybody taking note?   By the way, I am not surprised at how the White rich and wealthy countries speedily go to the aid of other White rich and wealthy countries neglecting the people of color around the world who die by the millions annually from disease, hunger, and other tragedies. 

 

The US wasted no time sending help to Australia while, at the same time of this news report, I heard on CNN International about a widow woman (among thousands of other poor literally living in squalor) in Afghanistan who lost her baby to the freezing cold.  Her daughter, five years of age, walked around wearing only socks gathering paper and other trash for fire for cooking and warmth in their one-room shelter covered by plastic.  WOW!  Where is the US and other wealthy NATO countries that have turned this country upside down.   

 

These are just some of the main events surrounding snow storms and flooding and “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” that I am sure caused the rich and famous to do some serious soul searching and ask, “Why me?”  

 

With very few people giving any real attention to the True and Living CREATOR GOD and the well-being of others, well, “Why not, you?”

 

US Sheen

 

I was watching the news about the US trade lagging behind China and India and heard a man from India, a country with unimaginable destitution and “Untouchables”, say, “The US has lost its sheen”.  I could not believe my ears!  I never would have expected someone from India to make such an assessment.  What did Hillary Clinton and President Obama tell them when they recently visited there?  They weren’t over there begging were they?

 

Israeli Apartheid

 

Last month I wrote about Israeli settlement sewer water flowing through the Palestinian camp.  It is unreal that these “Jews” can be so cruel and get away with their sinful treatment of the Palestinians while the US and other world powers turn the head and in doing so, strengthen the hands of these evil doers. 

 

Archbishop Desmond Tuto of South Africa, a staunch supporter of Palestinian rights, has said:

 

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

 

According to GOD’s WORD, the Children of Israel were compelled to love the Stranger because they were Strangers in Egypt.  Israelis, not only hate the Palestinians, but they want to see them dead!

 

Gaza:  Two years after the horror by Haidar Eid wrote:

 

…While in Gaza, the convoy’s activists will undoubtedly hear stories that will curdle the blood.  During the massacre, one Israeli soldier commented, “That’s what is so nice, supposedly, about Gaza:  You see a person on a road, walking along a path.  He doesn’t have to be with a weapon, you don’t have to identify him with anything and you can just shoot him.”

Opinion, 27 December 2010 – 2 January

 

Trust me, when you read about how White Jews were so adamantly in favor of Slavery, you will understand why they were just as ruthless at that time, as well! 

 

Remember the sanctions on South Africa?  Remember how the Blacks there had to be out of town before dark?  Remember how they did not have running water and electricity?  Remember how they were not at liberty to travel in their own country?  Remember how they had to carry ID papers?  Well, guess what?  These same cruel and racist conditions exist in Gaza and in the West Bank where other Palestinians live.  What’s worse, if the Palestinians want to build housing and/or upgrade their property that the Israelis bombed to Hell two years ago, they can’t because the Israelis will not issue them building materials and permits.  And if the Palestinians go ahead and build shelters for their families, the Israelis bulldoze their property.  This is insane!  Where is the United Nations???  Do the Israelis control this world body, as well?

 

And what’s worse is that my tax dollars support this pain, suffering, and racism heaped upon a defenseless people.  Is it any wonder that nations want the same bomb and power that the Israelis and Americans covertly and overtly flaunt with their many acts of aggression.  In order that the CREATOR GOD will be magnified and revered, it won’t be long before HE deals with the arrogance of tyrants who make the lives of the poor and helpless absolutely miserable.  And right now is not a minute too soon to start.

 

NUCLEAR ARMS TREATY

(STrategic Arms Treaty)

 

I guess you heard that the US and Russia both signed the Nuclear Arms Treaty (START).  Congress approved for the US, and the Russian Parliament is soon to approve on its end.  But get this:  Although Russia signed the Treaty, they made an announcement they are about to spend $600 billion on military.  Hold on to your hats.  And China is about to build an AIRCRAFT CARRIER!  What the heck is going on, right?  Hey, the US invaded Iraq and now occupies Afghanistan and bombs the Hell out of it and even parts of Pakistan, and so maybe countries are wondering if they are next. 

 

FATHER OF ABRAHAM, TAKE BACK YOUR UNIVERSE!  The powers-that-be do not mean well for the minorities and Third-World countries, and there is no sign that the wealthy and rulers of your world have it in their hearts to help the poor and improve living conditions and the education of the impoverished who suffer terribly.  And you know, FATHER, that YOU have always had a sympathetic and compassionate HEART for the poor.  My prayers are that you will show yourself to your people, take back your Holy Land, cause the SEED of Jacob to return, and that YOU will return back to your Holy City Jerusalem where every knee will bow to YOU.  Make haste, FATHER, before the enemy attempts to put “Every [Israelite] son that is born …into the river” or does some other obscene criminal act to cause the death of the SEED of Jacob and make attempts to prevent him from returning to his heritage.

 

WIKILEAKS ARE CAUSING A FLOOD OF THEIR OWN

 

There has been much hype about Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange.  But should he get the glory, or does the GLORY only belong to the CREATOR GOD?  Ask yourselves, folks, are these leaks an act of Julian Assange, or are them an act of the MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD? 

 

Come on, folks, these are the “latter days” and the times of “Jacob’s Troubles”, but fortunately, “he will be saved out of it”.  Assange was just a means to an end, and not a bad one at that!  The CREATOR is the best at introducing the true understanding of “transparency”!  Right?!  HALLELUYAH! 

 

So, now, all we have to do is go to the link and read what the powers-that-be don’t want us to know anything at all about.  These are those days in which the CREATOR GOD will enlighten us, if we will only take note and listen!

 

BIRDS FALLING AND DYING FROM THE SKY

AND

FISH DYING

 

So, what the heck is going on?  We know that the CREATOR GOD has HIS Hand in all things, especially during these latter days, so what Message is HE trying to send to us.  Earthquakes are occurring more frequently and strange weather patterns surround us all, and all kinds of fires are happening all over the globe.  Also, the “Dry Bones” are flexing their muscles, if you know what I mean.

 

I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. 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 2:30 – 32

 

Recently we have seen the moon turn to blood, a forest fire in Israel, where the Land is more desolate than flourishing, birds falling from the sky in the thousands in Arkansas, and let’s not forget the 100,000 dead fish found ashore just 200 miles from the dead birds.  It is even reported that dead birds have also fallen in Louisiana.   

 

TRULY it is time to CALL UPON THE HOLY NAME OF THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

 

EXODUS TWO

 

Could all GOD’s WONDERS and WORKS across the globe causing lunar and solar eclipses within days of each other and absolute devastation in the US, Israel, and in Australia (not to mention war-torn and Third-World countries) be about sending the powers-that-be a message?  After all, they do know about Black Hebrew Israelites seeking once again to return to their GOD of Israel and Exodus out of this gross bondage, suffering, double standards, prejudice, and discrimination.

 

And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.   Exodus 3:20

 

And could it be that the CREATOR GOD is fed up with the powers-that-be who instigate and exploit and deceive and spread false religions and false hope around the world.  Without question, resulting from their corrupt deeds and thinking, religious violence and unrest are rampant and spreading throughout the world and with much death accompanying it.

 

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”   Isaiah 45:7

 

Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.  And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.   Isaiah 13:6 – 11

 

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.   Isaiah 24:21

 

PARDON FOR POLLARD

 

Netanyahu obviously thinks he has complete control of the US Presidency, just as he does over the Palestinians.   He has written a letter to President Obama asking him to pardon the imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard.  None of the previous presidents since 1980 would do so.

 

Now, I know President Obama has been bowing to the American Jews and to the European Israelis, but if he does grant clemency to Pollard, after his spying on the US, I don’t think too many people will have any respect for him.  The Israelis literally get by with murder, and how the US is as thick as thieves with them is beyond my comprehension, especially after they bombed the USS Liberty in 1967 killing over thirty people.

 

Hey, these are the “latter days” and the “times of Jacob’s Troubles”, so really, anything is possible and anything can happen. 

 

But, come on now, Obama, yelling “UNCLE” in this case will not help your image or your legacy.

 

WAS HANNUKAH DESIGNATED BY THE GOD OF ISRAEL?

 

During the month of December, I saw notices about Israelites celebrating Hannukah, and because evidence proves this holiday to be man-made, Israelites should not be keeping it.  Herewith are reasons why this holiday cannot be one the Nation of Israel was given to observe. 

 

First of all, the Holy ONE of Israel had already outlined what HE Commanded of the Children of Israel - ALL TWELVE TRIBES - to observe for HIS Holy Days.  Hannukah was not one of them.  At the time of Hannukah (around 200 B.C.E), the majority of the Tribes of the Nation of Israel - the Ten Tribes - were in captivity in Gentile lands.  Thus, GOD’s establishment of an Hebrew observance at this time would make no sense.

 

“Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.”   Micah 3:7

 

Another more important fact to consider is that at the dating of Hannukah, the Israelites could not have been in the land, and it is the Hebrew Scriptures that prove this point.   When the GOD of Israel scattered the remnants of Judah and the other tribes, who numbered less than 45,000, HE went to HIS Place (Hosea 5:15).  It was at this same time that the GOD of Israel ceased to send HIS Prophets to HIS People.  Reason being is that the curses of Deuteronomy 28h Chapter were in play.

 

“The Lord hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied: he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the ground: he hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof. He hath cut off in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he hath drawn back his right hand from before the enemy, and he burned against Jacob like a flaming fire, which devoureth round about. He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire. The Lord was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation. And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest. The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast. The LORD hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Zion: he hath stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: therefore he made the rampart and the wall to lament; they languished together. Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.”   Lamentations 2:2 – 9

 

“The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thineenemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.”   Lamentations 2:17

 

“Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the LORD'S anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.”   Lamentations 2:22

 

We have to believe that all Israelites were removed from the Land of Israel

IF

none escaped nor remained”!

 

The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah are dated around 430 B.C.E., and at that time we know for a fact that the Israelites in the Land were already under the control of their enemies, due to their continued disobedience and rejection of GOD’s LAW.  The GOD of Israel had kept HIS Promise to cause their return after the 70-year captivity in Babylon, but the Israelites who returned, Judah and remnants of the other Tribes took NOT HEED to return to GOD’s Ways of Righteousness - HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments.  

 

“Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly: Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them. For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works. Behold, we are servants this day, and for the land that thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it: And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins: also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.”   Nehemiah 9:33 – 37

 

Also, consider this: The dating of the Book of Malachi, the last Prophet, is around 430 B.C.E..  Hence, we have to ask the question, if Malachi was the last Prophet and Hannukah is dated 200 B.C.E., then what people were so inspired to take it upon themselves to imagine and add an illegal observance to GOD’s customary Holy Days? 

 

That was a rhetorical question, for as we know the European Jews are the ones who boast of this observance.

WHAT MARK?

 

Does your forehead bear GOD’s Mark?  If it doesn’t, then you might have good reason to worry.  If history repeats itself, then we will want GOD’s Mark in our foreheads because this Mark speaks volumes and could save your life.  It pays to read our Hebrew Scriptures!

THE SMOKESCREEN

 

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;”  

Isaiah 42:5,6

 

“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

 

FINALLY:

 

“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.

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.”

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!

[I am too pleased to add the following list of more enlightening books presented by our dear Sister Naami baht Lewi.  By all means, please indulge and be the wiser. T.Y., Editor] 

 

1. Breaking the Chains of Psychological Slavery by Na'im Akbar (a very short book, but it's chock full of good, good stuff);

 

2. Africans and Their History by Dr. Joseph E. Harris (the book is not a big book either and there's even a paperback edition. Yet, it is one of the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow books on Africa that I've read);

3. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Dr. Joy Learey (in my opinion, this sister, even without an Israelite perspective, has produced the definitive work on explaining some of our behaviors, thought patterns, etc. She also offers some practical solutions that can be adopted and are even more applicable because we know the origin of our pathological behavior);

 

4. Capitalism and Slavery by Eric Williams (even though Dr. Williams speaks mainly about West Indian slavery, he offers a comprehensive perspective as to why we should not embrace our oppressors - particularly when we understand what they have done to us and their mindset on the whole institution).

 

5. Holy Land, Whose Land?: Modern Dilemma, Ancient Roots by Dorothy Drummond (she offers an interesting perspective on the question and she offers both the scientific and historical explanations as to why this is so);

 

6. The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker. This is a great reference book for explaining many of the pagan origins of beliefs, practices, etc.

 

7. The Penguin Dictionary of Religions, edited by John R. Hinnells;

 

8. The Penguin Dictionary of Symbols, by Jean Chevalier and Alain Gheerbrant;
Both of these reference books offer a wealth of information as to the origin or certain religious beliefs, how these beliefs were founded, and how various symbols are derived from paganism, etc.

 

9. Anything by the late Dr. Amos N. Wilson, particularly the following: The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child; Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children; & The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness.

 

NOTE: Dr. Wilson was an inspired, if sometimes soporific lecturer, although his lectures were mainly delivered in the vernacular of the common man. His books are written is some common language that is easily comprehensible, while also including language that may be difficult for some to follow (i.e., written in academic language). However, folks who are good and/or avid readers will gain a lot from his work.

 

10. The Hidden History of New York: A guide for Black Folks by Tingba Apidta, the 3rd in a series of The Reclamation Project, Boston, MA. (This book is for those who mistakenly believe that slavery and Jim Crow were Southern U.S. phenomena.)

 

11. African Perspective on Colonialism by A. Adu Boahen (An African's view of his continent's conquerors. Very interesting and informative.)

 

12. *The Jew and the Christian Missionary: A Jewish Response to Missionary Christianity" by Gerald Segal, KTAV Publishing House, Inc., NY, 1981.

*Please note that this book may be completely out of print. When I ordered mine on amazon.com a few years ago, (The Strand and other out-of-print publishers did not have a copy) it cost me $53 (other copies were being sold for as high as $250!). A congregation might want to track this publication down and pay for a copy and then distribute without charge, copies of sections, citing the source, of course. This way, they don't infringe on copyright laws. It is one of those remarkable books that once acquired, you don't let out of your possession.

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.”

Joshua 22:5

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? 

 

IN THAT…

 

“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…

 

“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.”  

Jeremiah 6:19

 

“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?”  

Micah 2:7

 

“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,

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.”

Exodus 16:29

 

“…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.”

Jeremiah 7:23,24

 

“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:”

Jeremiah 11:3,4

 

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.”  

Nehemiah 13:18

 

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.”  

Nehemiah 13:19

 

“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.

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:”

Isaiah 5:25,26

 

“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.”

Exodus 15:26

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.

DEAR LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

 

TAKE BACK your Universe! 

Don't let your enemies and the rebellious triumph over your wondrous WORKS!  This is your planet. 

YOU CREATED it, and you alone deserve ALL the PRAISE and GLORY!

Establish your RIGHTEOUSNESS for a world of Peace, Truth, and Happiness

for your MAJESTY and EXALTATION ALONE!

 

SHOW THE WORLD THAT YOU STILL EXIST!  LORD, TAKE BACK YOUR UNIVERSE!

 

TAKE BACK your Holy Land

YOU PROMISED it to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

AND to the SEED of the Children of Israel!

 

TAKE BACK your Holy City, Jerusalem

YOU established it for your Praise and Glory and for your Holy Temple,

Wherein, all Nations will bow to you and worship YOU ALONE.

 

TAKE BACK your Holy People, GOD of Israel, and Save those of us who seek to follow your Book of the Law, as it is written!  Save the Righteous Remnant

 

Save the Great Nation that YOU told Moses about - those special ones who will know only to serve and worship YOU, and who will have it no other way!  And forgive us our sins, and forgive our forefathers for theirs, as well.  They did you wrong, Father of Abraham, and too many of us, today, also do wrong by you.  But we are waking up, and we are turning to YOU.  For that reason, GOD of Israel, be Merciful, forgive, and cause THY FACE to shine upon us.

 

Save those of us who seek to follow your Book of the Law, as it is written!  Save the Righteous Remnant for your GLORY and PRAISE!

 

LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

SAVE your Chosen, the SEED of Jacob, The Remnant you are Calling for Your Holy Name's Sake!

 

SAVE US JUST ONE MORE TIME, HEAVENLY FATHER of Abraham!

 

SAVE US, so that we may Glory in your PRAISE and your EXALTATION!

 

Re-establish THY Holy Temple, so that all peoples may go before you to worship YOU and learn that YOU ALONE are the True and Living GOD of this Universe and that all people must live according to your Laws, Statutes, and Judgments if we are to enjoy your Peace and Your Happiness on your Earth!

 

"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!

IN TRUTH DURING THIS ROSH CHODESH AND ALL THE YEAR,

 ALWAYS!

A MESSAGE TO ALL MESSIANICS:

 

 WAIT ON THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL

AND

MAKE HIM YOUR

LORD AND SAVIOR - NOT “MAN.”

(Psalm 25:4,5)

 

"…and thou shalt know

that I am theLORD:

for they shall not be ashamed

That wait for me."

 Isaiah 49:23

 

 

 

“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.”

Deuteronomy 8:19

 

 

“Whom have I in heaven but thee?

and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.”

Psalm 73:25

 

“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.”  

Hosea 13:4,9,14

 

“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.”  

Psalm 40:5

 

“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

BUT YIHOVAH,

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

BUT YIHOVAH

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 God be magnified.”

“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!”

Psalm 71:15,16,19

 

“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

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

“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.

Exodus 29:46

 

“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

BUT YIHOVAH,

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

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

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.”

Amos 5:4,6

 

“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.”

Amos 4:2

 

“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.”

Amos 5:2,16,27

(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.”

Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

“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!

 

Tziona Yisrael,

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake

 

P.S.

 

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.”  

Psalm 96:12,13

 

“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!

 

P.P.S.

 

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.”  

Isaiah 8:16,17

 

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:”

Isaiah 55:6

“I will declare thy name unto my brethren: 

in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.”  

Psalm 22:22

 

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

Poetry and Prose Corner With A Message:

 

JC HAD His DAY, AGAIN,

AND

THE WORLD IS STILL IN CRISIS

 

On the Gregorian calendar the man JC was born,

December 25th he came into the world to save all who mourn.

 

This annual celebration has been going on for 2,000 years,

And those who mourn experience continued fears and tears.

 

Where is this man, JC, called “King of the Jews”,

Is there any truth to him or have folks been used?

 

For him church bells ring and houses are all aglow,

With songs all about JC and flashing tree lights magnifico.

 

People thinking about JC and unable to get him off their minds,

But where is he in this mix of Christmas birthday grind?

 

Doesn’t he realize that people are calling upon him,

Forsaking the CREATOR’s Holy Name with vigor and vim?

 

It seems folks believe the son is greater than the father,

So, they call upon the son and with the father, they don’t other.

 

Could this be the reason the world is in crisis,

From worshipping a man-god and not the GOD of Genesis?

 

Fires, Floods, quakes, wars, and violence engulf the globe,

With many an image, idol, JC, or other god to probe.

 

It is obvious that the CREATOR’s Wrath pervades the soul,

Arousing fear in the hearts of men by HIS WORKS to extol.

 

But is anyone paying attention o JC’s lack of interest,

And GOD’s Mighty HAND to call attention to HIS Righteousness?

 

JC had his day, and the world continues in crisis,

Nothing is getting better, only ubiquitous and intense avarice.

 

Let the True CREAOTOR GOD come back to HIS Place,

Back to HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and to HIS People, Israel, to face.

 

Only the GOD of Israel can change what the evil and wicked have done,

And establish HIS Earth and Universe as at first I had begun.

 

HE can cause the world of peoples to learn the Truth of the matter,

That the CREATOR is the GOD of Abraham and Jacob and Israel, the latter.

 

This GOD will make people understand that this world abides by man’s ways,

That they rejected HIM, created gods, and are now at the end of heathenish days.

 

O’ let the CREATOR GOD return and Judge the disobedient and wicked,

To end false worship and to establish HIS Ways once again instead.

 

Let there now be ONE GOD, HIS NAME ONE, and ONE WAY,

Let HIM reign over HIS WORLD and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake have HIS Say!

“Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

 Thus saith the LORD,

Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven;

for the heathen are dismayed at them.

 For the customs of the people are vain:

for one cutteth a tree out of the forest,

the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers,

that it move not.

 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not:

they must needs be borne, because they cannot go.

Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.”

FOR YOUR INFORMATION (FYI):

 

 

[I am absolutely amazed at how European Jews have taken over the US and at how they rewrite history.  According to authoritative documents, they indeed were the “Mother of all Slavers”, but they spue so much loud propaganda and rhetoric that they have people disbelieving what they well know to be truth.  Check out what these people have the nerve to put in print when their own people have written a plethora of books to the contrary.  If you have not bought a copy of The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (documented mainly by White Jews), written by The Nation of Islam, then you must get your copy, like NOW, and see for yourself White Jewish hands promoting the Slave Trade and keeping the Black man down!  The article on David Duke also documents White Jewish involvement in the institution of Slavery – Black Enterprise.

 

Nevertheless, read the following article also by White Jews, and see how they tout “hatred” against Jews for people having the justified audacity to say that they, TOO, were Slavers and brutal chiefs among them.   Also see, by their admission that they started the NAACP.  And I’ll bet that it is their donations to NAACP that keep those Blacks well bought and on the straight-and-narrow for White Jewish concerns.  They always have to know what we are about, and for good reason, I might add.  The GOD of Israel is awakening up the “Dry Bones”.  By the way, they run and control the Human Rights Watch.  It’s no wonder we don’t hear from them.  T.Y., Editor]

THE MID-EAST DISPATCH

WEEKEND EXTRA - No. 003 - 18th January 1996

This week MED looks at an oft-repeated claim, that Jews have been in the vanguard of the slave trade and other racist activities against black Africans. The following article was prepared under the auspices of the Simon Wiesenthal Center by Dr. Harold Brackman of the Center and Professor Mary R. Lefkowitz of Wellesley College. Although written from the perspective of US history, and freedom of academic thought within the USA, its arguments are of general interest.

JEWS AND SLAVERY IN THE SOUTH

If a hate speaker were to come to your campus or organization, what would you do? There was a time when this question would have been largely theoretical; but now the problem of how to deal with hate speech affects everyone at every level of our society.

The First Amendment protects the rights of all of us to state our opinion. We think it is important for all of us to be as well-informed as possible about the issues, and to confront racist speech not with violence or unreasoning hostility but with information.

Our focus here is one group, among a range of groups, that has been targeted for attack. In recent years, campus speakers have made new and astounding accusations against Jews, specifically in relation to the history of Africans and African Americans. Many of these charges concern events about which most people have little detailed knowledge.

In this Fact Sheet we try to show why these accusations are wrong, and to suggest resource materials for anyone who wants to study the issues in detail. We hope that you will read these materials with an open mind, and judge the issues for yourself.

FACTS VS. FICTIONS

Q. Did Jews "Dominate" the Slave Trade Within Africa?

A. Between the years 1650 and 1900, ten million or more Black Africans were carried by slavers either north across the Sahara or east over the Red Sea/Indian Ocean route.

This trade was under the control not of Jews but of Muslim merchants who also helped supply the Atlantic slave trade Professor Orlando Patterson of Harvard University in Roots and Branches:
Current Directions in Slave Studies, ed. Michael Catron (New York: Pergamon Press, 1979), p. 287: "The kind of structure which Islamic imperialists imposed on that part of Africa over the centuries . . . [created] a structural pattern that was highly predatory . . . which, in the long term, distorted, even prevented, regional development. One might even go a step further, and say that the resistance to European penetration might have been much stronger had it not been for the underdevelopment of Africa, due to that earlier slavery."

Q. Did Jews "Dominate" the Atlantic Slave Trade?

A. Jews were barred from the New World colonies of Spain, Portugal, and France. The British and Dutch generally allowed them to settle, but limited their participation in the international slave trade. "New Christians" of Jewish descent were more involved until they were persecuted and driven to the sidelines by the Spanish Inquisition. Overall, the role of slave traders of Jewish faith or family origin was minor.

Professor David Brion Davis of Yale University in Slavery and Human Progress (New York: Oxford Univ. Press, 1984), p. 89: "Whatever Jewish refugees from Brazil may have contributed to the northwestward expansion of sugar and slaves, it is clear that Jews had no major or continuing impact on the history of New World slavery."

Q. Were Jews Major Slave Traders in the Old South?

A. Jews were never prominent in the domestic slave trade within the American South from states like Virginia to the fields of the Cotton Kingdom. For example, the Davis brothers - small-scale operators - were one of three Jewish-owned firms among seventy in Richmond.

Rabbi Bertram W. Korn, "Jews and Negro Slavery in the Old South, 1789-1865," in The Jewish Experience in America, ed. Abraham J. Karp (Waltham, MA: American Jewish Historical Society, 1969), Vol. 3, pp. 197-98: "None of the major slavetraders was Jewish, nor did Jews constitute a large proportion in any particular community. . . . Probably all of the Jewish slavetraders in all of the Southern cities and towns combined did not buy and sell as many slaves as did the firm of Franklin and Armfield, the largest Negro traders in the South."

Q. Were Jews Prominent Among the Major Slaveholders in the Old South?

A. Only ten percent of the 150,000 American Jews at the time of the Civil War lived in the South. Southern Jews who owned slaves were overwhelmingly "smallholders" concentrated in cities, not in the plantation districts containing ninety percent of the enslaved population. For example, there were only four Jews - less than one-tenth of one percent - among the 11,000 Southerners who in 1830 owned fifty or more slaves.

Rabbi Bertram W. Korn, "Jews and Negro Slavery in the Old South, 1789-1865," in The Jewish Experience in America, ed. Abraham J. Karp (Waltham, MA: American Jewish Historical Society, 1969), Vol. 3, p. 180:

"[There were] Jewish owners of plantations, but altogether they constituted only a tiny proportion of the Southerners whose habits, opinions, and status were to become decisive for the entire section, and eventually for the entire country. . . . [Only one Jew] tried his hand as a plantation overseer even if only for a brief time."

Q. Did Jews Shun the Antislavery Movement?

A. Prominent Jews joined the manumission societies that gradually ended slavery in the North in the generation after the American Revolution. The militant abolitionist movement of the 1830s - led by "born again" Protestants --frightened off some Jewish support. But by the 1850s, German Jewish immigrants were flocking to the antislavery Republican Party at the same time as other immigrants became firmly wedded to the anti-abolition Democrats.

Maxwell Whiteman, "Jews in the Antislavery Movement," Introduction to The Kidnapped and the Ransomed: The Narrative of Peter and Vina Still (Philadelphia: The Jewish Publication Society of America, 1970), pp. 28,42:

"Antislavery strongly appealed to the Jewish concept of the universal freedom of man. Hence, the hundreds of Jews who believed in the God of Israel . . . gave their energies to the antislavery movement . . .[despite] the Christian-martyr complex of many abolitionists, the evangelism of others, and the exclusiveness of still others."

Q. Did Jewish Rabbis "Invent Racism"?

A. Judaism is a universalist religion that embraces people of all colors and never imposed racial or ethnic limitations on conversion to the faith. The Old Testament instructs Jews to "love the stranger," and the biblical story of how Noah, angered by his son, Ham, cursed Ham's son, Canaan, has nothing to do with race.

The rabbis who compiled the Talmud, the pre-fifth century commentary on Jewish law, did not link slave status with black skin as part of a "divine curse." This linkage was made centuries later by Islamic and then Christian writers to justify the slave trade in non-white Africans.

Dr. Ephraim Isaac of the Institute of Semitic Studies, "Genesis, Judaism, and the Sons of Ham'," in Slaves and Slavery in Muslim Africa, ed. John R. Willis (London: Frank Cass, 1985), Vol. 1, p.76: "Notwithstanding the fact that few monolithic Rabbinic teachings exist about any subject, there is always a general trend of thinking that can be extracted . . . . On that basis, it should be stated affirmatively that in Biblical or Rabbinic thought it cannot be said that the curse of Noah directly affected the whole family of Ham, nor can it be said that black people are regarded as the descendants of Canaan who was the accursed son of Ham."

Q. Was There a "Jewish Conspiracy" to Spy on African Americans?

A. During the 1920s, "Back to Africa" advocate Marcus Garvey sought a political alliance with the Ku Klux Klan at the same time as he castigated Jewish civil rights activists as "spies for the rest of the white race." Now, Garvey's charges have been revived specifically regarding the World War I activities of NAACP Board Chairman Joel E. Spingarn.

The facts are that, once the US entered the war in April 1917, Spingarn shared W.E.B. DuBois' controversial view that "Closing Ranks" behind the still-segregated military efforts was the best way to advance the civil rights cause.

Spingarn toured the country urging black college students to become officer candidates because it was time for "colored heroes who are lieutenants, captains, colonels, and generals." He enlisted and, in 1918, was assigned as a Major to Military Intelligence in Washington. He ultimately failed to convince his military superiors to create a special "Negro Section," in which DuBois would also be commissioned, with the dual purpose of discouraging antiwar activity and promoting patriotic enthusiasm among African Americans.

During and after the war, the Army used black intelligence agents to conduct domestic political surveillance, but Spingarn (who was reassigned to a combat regiment in France) had no significant part. His wartime role, however viewed, had nothing to do with Spingarn's negligible Jewish identification and organizational involvement.

Mark Ellis, "Closing Ranks, and Seeking Honors: W.E.B. DuBois in World War I," Journal of American History, Vol. 79 (June, 1992), p. 105: "[Spingarn] proposed propaganda initiatives aimed specifically at black opinion, and he called for federal action to redress grievances such as lynching and segregation. He claimed this dual approach had military relevance, since it would guarantee black participation in the war. But in linking a war for democracy' fought in France and the extension of democracy at home Spingarn was trying to further the aims of the NAACP as much as the war effort . . . . only two of his projects produced any results. In June 1918 he succeeded in having . . . hearings [held] on a wartime antilynching bill, and in July he persuaded the Committee on Public Information to organize a conference of black editors."

Q. How and Why Did Jewish Involvement in the Civil Right Movement Develop?

A. In 1909, when four Jews were among the sixty multiracial signers of the Call to National Action resulted in creation of the NAACP, the Yiddish newspapers on New York's Lower East Side were already equating lynchings of African Americans in the South with pogroms against Jews in Russia. During the next half century, organizational bonds and political cooperation between African American and American Jewish communities gradually matured.

The culmination in 1964 was Mississippi Freedom Summer when over half of the white students who journeyed south to fight for black voting rights are estimated to have been Jewish. Those drawn to the civil rights movement gave diverse reasons, and selfless idealism on behalf of others coexisted with enlightened self-interest in uprooting prejudices that also victimized Jews.

Martin Luther King, Jr., from a 1965 interview, in A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings (1986), p. 370: "How could there be anti-Semitism among Negroes when our Jewish friends have demonstrated their commitment to the principle of tolerance and brotherhood not only in the form of sizable contributions, but in many other tangible ways, and often at great personal sacrifice. Can we ever express our appreciation to the rabbis who chose to give moral witness with us in St. Augustine during our recent protest against segregation in that unhappy city? Need I remind anyone of the awful beating suffered by Rabbi Arthur Lelyveld of Cleveland when he joined the civil rights workers there in Hattiesburg, Mississippi? And who can ever forget the sacrifice of two Jewish lives, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, in the swamps of Mississippi? It would be impossible to record the contribution that the Jewish people have made toward the Negro's struggle for freedom - it has been so great."

JEWS AND SLAVERY IN THE SOUTH

 

*****

 

Since White people are routinely condemned for 200 years of slavery in America, why are Jews not condemned for their leading role in slave trade over the last 2000 years?

4/21/2008

“The White race is to be condemned in the liberal press for having had slaves over a 150 years ago in the United States. Why are the Jewish people not condemned for their leading role in the slave trade over the last 2000 years?”

Another question for David Duke and his answer!

Mr. Duke, you mention the White role in slavery, but please bring up the historic role in this nefarious practice. You wrote about it so powerfully in Jewish Supremacism. Most scholars say that far more Blacks perished in the slave trade itself than from conditions in the Americas. “If the White race is to be condemned in the liberal press, why are not the Jewish people condemned for the world’s leading role in the slave trade over the last 2000 years?”–Dr. E Brian

That’s such a good question Dr. Brian. It is one that has an interesting and obvious answer. One must look at the identity of the people doing the condemning. The historical Jewish domination of the slave trade is revealing about the entire structure of the Jewish-Gentile conflict and the propaganda to which we are subjected. I will never forget when, as a young boy, I watched the Ten Commandments with that great Gentile icon Charlton Heston playing Moses. In the audience of the Pharoah, Moses stands up and condemns him for slavery.

Only thing was, he didn’t mention the fact that the Hebrews had slaves too. In fact in the Old Testament, none other than God himself commands that no slaves will be made of your own people, but you can make slaves of other peoples as your inheritance forever! In Jewish Supremacism and My Awakening I give the entire verse word for word. I have got to be careful here, for simply by quoting the verse I can be condemned as condoning slavery — which I don’t. For simply quoting that verse, my friend Sam Francis lost his job as editorial page editor for the Washington Times.

Jewish Supremacism also quotes major Jewish historians bragging about their domination of the slave trade since ancient times. And many more recent writers of Jewish history actually boast of their incredible domination of the triangular slave trade between Africa, the West Indies and the American colonies. When Nation of Islam researchers began quoting what the Jews had written for Jewish consumption, Minister Farakhan and others were condemned as “anti-semites” for falsely saying that Jews controlled the historical slave trade!

Of course, the closest thing that approximates the ancient slave trade to the present day is the White slave trade (prostitution) including the forced abasement and torture of hundreds of thousands of Eastern European women. As readers of the David Duke Report are aware, this nefarious activity is almost completely controlled by Jews and much of it is based in Israel. But somehow the Jews get no bad press from this. Again, it really is not hard to understand when one understands who controls the press!

Here are some excerpts from Jewish Supremacism on the subject. (Footnotes appear at the end of the text in order)

The Slave Trade

44 As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are round about you…

46 You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession forever; you may make slaves of them, but over your brethren the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness. (Leviticus 25:44)

Although the institution of slavery existed throughout most of human history, trade in human flesh has never been looked upon as a noble occupation. Compassionate men and women have long decried cruel mistreatment of slaves, especially of women and children, by slave traders and holders. Many agreed with Christ’s admonitions to slaveholders to treat their slaves kindly. In contrast to the benevolent image assigned to them by the media, Jews historically dominated an international institution that embodied the darkest evils of human exploitation: the slave trade.

My introduction to the important Jewish role in slave trading came from an article about Jews written by a leading Jewish historian and apologist, Jacob Marcus, in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Marcus casually remarked about the Jewish control of commerce in the Middle Ages — particularly in the slave trade.

In the dark ages the commerce of western Europe was largely in his [the Jew’s] hand, in particular the slave trade. . . .

The Jewish mastery of the slave trade did not go unnoticed to Christian writers of the Middle Ages. I read poignant accounts of European children who suffered sexual and other abuses from Jewish slavetraders who acquired them. In Roman times they often followed the path of the conquering Roman army and enslaved enemy soldiers and civilians. Chroniclers of the ancient and medieval periods wrote of their preference for fair women and children, and of their frequent sale in the Levant. The Jewish slavers were more than happy to satisfy darker men’s taste for White flesh. Horrified by reports of abuse of Christian women and children by Jews, a number of Christian principalities issued edicts detailing these abuses and forbidding Jews to own or trade in Christian women and children. Jews, in writing their own histories, have matter-of-factly acknowledged the Jewish role in slave trading, looking at it as simply an extremely lucrative Jewish commercial venture. In A History of the Jew: From Babylonian Exile to the End of World War II, published by the Jewish Publications Society of America, the author writes very emphatically:

Jews were among the most important slave dealers [in European society].

It really surprised me when I found out that Jews played a prominent role in American slavery. In the early 1970s, I came across a book called Who Brought the Slaves to America by Walter White. I could understand the role of Jews in the slave trade of the Mediterranean region, but it seemed unlikely to me that the very small Jewish population in the early American Colonies could dominate such a large enterprise. I had also retained at that time Hollywood’s image of White men, perhaps even Southerners, sailing to Africa and rounding up Black natives for the slave trade. In movies, articles and books, slavers were Anglo-Saxons with names like Smith or Jones. Usually, they were hard-drinking, uncouth, Southern types. Later I learned that slavery was ubiquitous in Africa among native Blacks themselves, and that they were seldom rounded up by Whites. Usually, Black African slaveholders were the ones who sold them to the slavetraders.

Who Brought the Slaves to America steered me to the library collections that housed the records of the slave ships, contemporary accounts, and a number of Jewish historians who documented the role Jews have played in slavery (also see the Barnes Review, Sept. 97). The Jewish writers I read were prideful in their accounts of the great Jewish slave traders. A good case in point is Marc Raphael’s Jews and Judaism in the United State: A Documentary History.

Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.

This was no less true on the North American mainland, where during the eighteenth century Jews participated in the ‘triangular trade’ that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which in turn was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750s, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760s, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760s and early 1770s dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent.

In North America, the slave trade had its most powerful center in Newport, Rhode Island. Newport formed a pivotal part of the triangular slave trade of rum and molasses from New England to Africa for slaves and back to the West Indies and the Colonies with the human cargo. I discovered that it was no coincidence that Newport, center of the slave trade, had the oldest synagogue in America and the largest thriving Jewish community in the American colonies.

Aaron Lopez, a Portuguese Jew of Marrano descent and a resident of Newport, was one of the most powerful slave traders in the Americas. He owned dozens of ships and imported thousands of Blacks into the Western Hemisphere. In an account of just two voyages of one of Lopez’s ships, the Cleopatra, at least 250 Blacks perished. Such horrendous loss of life in such a dirty business did not prevent Jewish chronicler Jacob Marcus from praising Lopez: “What can be said about this most attractive figure.?” Although Lopez acquired riches in the Colonies, he violated the anti-British non-importation trade agreements during the revolutionary period, supporting Britain’s interests rather than the Colonies.’

Jews dominated the slave trade not only in the American Colonies but all over the New World. In a major Jewish history of the early Americas called, New World Jewry, 1492-1776, one can find the following passage:

They came with ships carrying African blacks to be sold as slaves. The traffic in slaves was a royal monopoly, and the Jews were often appointed as agents for the Crown in their sale….[They] were the largest ship chandlers in the entire Caribbean region, where the shipping business was mainly a Jewish enterprise….The ships were not only owned by Jews, but were manned by Jewish crews and sailed under the command of Jewish captains.

Many Jewish writers chronicled the Jewish role in slavery, often boasting of their shrewdness in the business.

The West India Company, which monopolized imports of slaves from Africa, sold slaves at public auctions against cash payment. It happened that cash was mostly in the hands of Jews. The buyers who appeared at the auctions were almost always Jews, and because of this lack of competitors they could buy slaves at low prices. On the other hand, there also was no competition in the selling of the slaves to the plantation owners and other buyers, and most of them purchased on credit payable at the next harvest in sugar. Profits up to 300 percent of the purchase value were often realized with high interest rates….If it happened that the date of such an auction fell on a Jewish holiday the auction had to be postponed. This occurred on Friday, October 21, 1644.

Although certainly indefensible by today’s moral standards, slavery in the United States was many times preferable to the incredibly cruel and murderous conditions of African slavery. The greatest inhumanity of Black slavery is associated with the passage to America. Some say that 10 to 15 percent of Black slaves died in the cramped and filthy conditions on the ships. Since the Jews have dominated the slave trade from ancient times, I realized that it is not only Blacks who have suffered from those inhuman conditions, but also untold numbers of White people of the Mediterranean region. It should also be pointed out that not only were Jews the principal slave traders, they had a markedly higher per capita holding of slaves than non-Jews.

All through the eighteenth century, into the early nineteenth, Jews in the North were to own black servants; in the South, the few plantations owned by Jews were tilled with slave labor. In 1820, over 75 percent of all Jewish families in Charleston, Richmond, and Savannah owned slaves, employed as domestic servants; almost 40 percent of all Jewish householders in the United States owned one slave or more. There were no protests against slavery as such by Jews in the South, where they were always outnumbered at least 100 to 1….Very few Jews anywhere in the United States protested against chattel slavery on moral grounds.

Considering that less than 10 percent of all colonists owned slaves, Marcus reveals that individual Jewish households (40 percent owned slaves) were far more likely to own slaves than were Gentiles. With their comparatively greater numbers in the Mediterranean world, Jews constituted disproportionate slaveholders in the ancient and medieval world just as they were in the Colonies. The importation of slaves to America is a relatively recent historical phenomenon that lasted about 200 years. From before the time of Christ to the African trade of the 1700s, most of the slaves owned and bartered by Jews were White.

When I learned of the Jewish role in the slave trade, it seemed to me that it could have certainly added to the resentment against the Jews felt by their host populations. Being known as the greatest perpetrators of the slave trade is not the best of public relations for Jews. It is no wonder that the Jewish-dominated media have avoided the issue. Only Jewish scholars, who faithfully record Jewish history, primarily for Jewish readers, are allowed to travel on to such forbidden historical ground.

After my first efforts on national television in the early 1970s to expose the Jewish role in slave trading (on PBS’s — Black Perspectives on the News), the Nation of Islam also did extensive research on the issue. Their historical research department came up with a tremendous amount of documented material on the subject that they published in the book called, The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews.

Today, simply by repeating the words of prominent Jewish historians on the Jewish role in slavery, one becomes guilty of “anti-Semitism.” It was only when the public began to learn some of the little-known facts previously reserved for Jewish scholars, that the ADL found it necessary to counter such “anti-Semitic” propaganda. The ADL and other Jewish organizations have responded by trotting out a number of prestigious Jewish scholars who have publicly announced that the Jewish role in the colonial slave trade was “minimal.”

In Spielberg’s blockbuster movie on the slave trade, Amistad, there was hardly a Jew to be found in the film. Although the Jews dominated the Newport, Rhode Island slave trade, all the slavers in the film seemed conspicuously Christian. A number of articles that discussed Amistad and the slave trade, including Time and Newsweek, went out of their way to deny a major Jewish role in slave trading. Unfortunately, most of their readers were not told what prominent Jewish historians themselves wrote about the matter before it became an embarrassing public issue.

Few will read the words of the editor of the magazine of the American Jewish Historical Society; “Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated. This is no less true on the North American mainland…”

White Slavery

Prostitution, or White slavery as it is aptly called, is another institution as old as civilization. Even in ancient times, the fair-skinned beauty of European women and little boys and girls brought a premium from the purveyors of perhaps the most brutal kind of slavery of all: the sexual defilement of one’s body. The subjection of countless innocents to the filth and pain of sexual degradation is a crime of enormous magnitude.

Just as they dominated the organized slave trade, Jews dominated prostitution. It originally came about as a natural adjunct to slavery, as it took no special commercial acumen to realize that a female or young boy slave could be rented out for sexual abuse. And fair European maidens could fetch great prices from the sultans of the darker nations.

From the days of the concubines of King David to the modern “madams” Xaviera Hollander and Heidi Fleiss, Jews have dominated the sex business. The Talmud is obsessed with sexual “connections” of what it calls “natural and unnatural” kinds, of sexual relations of adults with little boys and girls, with bond maidens and with harlots. In the modern age, Freud and his colleagues in academia brought this perverted view of our natures into the classrooms and living rooms of America. Freud, with the help of the Jewish-influenced media, told Western society — with a straight face — that sexual and excretory organs are the most important factors in life and that every male secretly desires to have sexual relations with his mother.

In looking into the history of prostitution, I read about a maleficent deception Jews used in Central Europe during the last century. During times of famine or economic hardship, well-dressed, fast-talking Jews would go into peasant communities and tell the parents of attractive Christian teenagers that their children could have a better life in America, which had a shortage of household labor. The Jews told the parents that after a short time their children could pay off the cost of their passage and begin a new life in the land of freedom and plenty. In spite of the pain of being separated from their children, some of the parents would consent to such an arrangement, wanting the best for their daughters. Instead of finding a bright, new life, tens of thousands ended up suffering in the brothels of the New World.

In his book Prostitution and Prejudice, Jewish historian Edward Bristow writes about the world prostitution network and clearly shows the prominent Jewish role. It is not hard to conceive of the reaction of many Eastern Europeans to the Jewish enslavement and degradation of tens of thousands of Christian girls. Bristow reveals that the center of the Jewish trade in Gentile women from Poland and surrounding regions was a small town called Oswiecim, which the Germans called Auschwitz. That simple revelation can bring much understanding of the recurrent Jewish and Gentile conflict.

Jewish domination of White slavery continues. In fact, it is on a larger scale now than ever before in history.  The Times-Picayune on January 11, 1998, ran an article titled “Slave traders Lure Slavic Women.” It (written by Michael Specter and distributed by the Jewish-run New York Times News Service) documents a Jewish-run White slave operation of huge proportions. The piece begins with a poignant story about how a beautiful blonde Ukrainian girl hoping to escape the poverty and despair of her village life answered an ad in a small newspaper in her hometown promising work and opportunity abroad. She wound up a sex slave in Israel.

She was 21, self-assured and glad to be out of Ukraine. Israel offered a new world, and for a week or two everything seemed possible. Then, one morning, she was driven to a brothel, where her boss burned her passport before her eyes.

“I own you,” she recalled his saying. “You are my property, and you will work until you earn your way out. Don’t try to leave. You have no papers and you don’t speak Hebrew. You will be arrested and deported. Then we will get you and bring you back.”

In Israel the government does little to end the brutal slave system other than deport a small percentage of the girls they find with no immigration papers. Almost 1,500 Ukrainian women have been deported from Israel in the past three years. The deck is completely stacked against the Gentile woman and in favor of the slavemasters, for if they file a complaint against the slavemaster, they must remain in prison until a trial is held. Specter quotes the prison director at Neve Tirtsa as saying she did not know of a single girl who chose to testify against her Jewish slavemasters. The White slaver is thus protected by the Israeli system, while the victims are punished.

Specter identifies both the prostitutes and their masters. He quotes an Israeli White slave master, Jacob Golan:

The women who work there, like nearly all prostitutes in Israel, are Russian, their boss is not.

“Israelis love Russian girls,” said Jacob Golan. . . . “They are blonde and good looking and different from us,” he said, chuckling.

Of course, Israel is not the only destination of the Eastern European women. The Jewish gangs in Russia have strong connections with Jewish organized-crime syndicates all over the world. According to the Ukraine’s interior ministry, an estimated 400,000 women under the age of 30 were lured from the Ukraine in the past decade — and that is just one of the former Soviet states. Specter quotes the International Organization for Migration as estimating that 500,000 Eastern-Block women are trafficked into Western Europe and around the world annually. It is a tragedy of huge proportions that gets very little press.

Moment magazine, the “Magazine of Jewish Culture and Opinion,” had an article on page 44 of the April, 1998 edition, called “Hookers in the Holy Land.” In it they discuss the thriving prostitution of blonde Russian girls as a “national institution.” It goes on to talk about the customers who even include rabbis riding bicycles to the whore houses.

A good percentage of the customers — or Johns, in the lingo — are ultra-Orthodox Jews, pious men whose lives are guided by halachah (religious law), which tells them when they can or cannot have sex with their wives. So, on Thursday afternoons, (boys night out in Israel) busloads of Orthodox Jews travel from Jerusalem, Haifa, and points beyond to Tel Aviv for a few precious moments of passion in a massage parlor, behind a sand dune, or in an alleyway. Other customers are accountants, lawyers, policemen, and politicians. “The entire spectrum of Israeli society is keeping the hookers in business.” Claims Detective Shachar, a cynical veteran on the Tel Aviv vice detail…Tel Baruch is so very absurd and so very Israel.

It blatantly goes on to describe the girls, who are mostly East European Gentile women along with some Palestinians, as virtual slaves who are put on a slave auction block.

Once the girls arrive in Israel, the crime bosses take over. The girls are usually taken to an “auction house,” where the owners of the various massage parlors can bid on the talent — each one offers a price, and the highest bidder gets the girl.…The girls are virtual slaves.

The article goes on to note that many of the prostitutes in Israel, especially those of Arab descent, encounter physical abuse from Jews who abuse them as an expression of their “racial-nationalist fervor.”

…find that their Jewish customers only come to them after a Palestinian terrorist act to get their own brand of sexual revenge laced with racial-nationalistic fervor. “…and they do it with hate and anger.”

In discussing the forged documents used to smuggle the girls into Israel, Specter notes that they have often been obtained from “elderly Jewish women in the Ukraine.” Even so, Specter casually refers to the Jewish perpetrators of this international White slavery ring as “Russian crime gangs” or “Russian mafia.” It would be bad for Jewish public relations if The Times-Picayune had titled the article “Jewish Slave traders Lure Gentile Women.”

Jewish writers on anti-Semitism never mention the Jewish domination of the slave trade or of prostitution over the centuries. They never point out that such Jewish activities could understandably lead to unfavorable attitudes toward Jews.

Imagine the world-wide media reaction if Gentiles were enslaving hundreds of thousands of Jewish girls, putting them on auction blocks, and subjecting them to indescribable brutalities? Consider the outrage that would bellow from the Jewish media. Yet, with millions of Christian girls becoming the victims of Jewish criminals, there is no moral outcry — no international cause trumpeted by celebrities and politicians.

After my discussion of these issues on the national PBS program Black Perspectives on the News, attacks on me as an “anti-Semite” became even more shrill. As a young man, when I read about slavery in the South, my heart was touched by the tales of cruelty and suffering, so much so that I felt guilty. But as I learned the truth about the slave trade, I noticed that the same Jewish writers and producers and publishers who had instilled guilt in me never once suggested that Jews had any “collective guilt” for a 2,000-year record of plying their trade in human flesh.

Apparently, in the new morality of the Jewish press, learning about White exploitation of Blacks is “history,” and learning about Jewish exploitation of both Whites and Blacks is called “hate.”

San Fran Ban (Circumcision)

December 14, 2010

By Joyce Schur

 

San Francisco, go figure. Jews and Muslims may be divided on Jerusalem, but the Golden Gate Bridge city has managed to bridge the divide on a different issue of common interest: circumcision!

San Fran, known for its tolerance, has a proposed ballot initiative to ban circumcision. No joke, there really is one! If it passes, those who violate the ban could be fined (up to $1000) or jailed (up to a year) under the proposal, which would make it a misdemeanor to circumcise anyone below the age of eighteen.


What's particularly ironic is that San Francisco has one of the country's highest metropolitan rates of cumulative AIDS diagnoses.


And yet, the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2007 endorsed male circumcision as "an important intervention to reduce the risk of HIV". Three studies in particular were carried out in Kenya, Uganda and South Africa where results indicated that circumcision reduced the risk of HIV infection by 60%. It's even been predicted that circumcision, as a national health practice, could save three million lives over the next twenty years.


Similar results are turning up in the US as well; a team of researchers from CDC, John Hopkins, and the Baltimore health department examined the records of 1,000 HIV+ men and found uncircumcised individuals were 50% more likely to be infected.


Routine circumcision has long been controversial in the US.  San Francisco is not the first city to entertain a ban proposal, and yet there's increasing evidence to correlate circumcision with:


-A reduced risk of urinary tract infections

-A reduced risk of STDs

-Protection against a rare form of cancer in men, reduced risk of cervical cancer in female

partners as well as HPV (the human papillomavirus) in both partners

-Prevention of balanitis and balanoposthitis

-Prevention of phimosis and paraphimosis


Even the American Academy of Pediatrics, which does not recommend "routine" circumcision or consider it "essential", officially acknowledges the existence of enough scientific evidence to demonstrate potential medical benefits and advantages.


The San Francisco proposal has a long way to go, requiring 7,100 signatures by April 2011 to appear on the November 2011 ballot. Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Community Relations Council, the Board of Rabbis of Northern California and the American Jewish Committee have issued a joint statement calling brit milah, the covenant of circumcision, “of fundamental importance in the Jewish tradition.”


The OU has weighed in with a letter commending Mayor Gavin Newsom's opposition to defeat such a proposal. Newsom has been quoted as saying that if the measure became law it would make San Francisco look "out of touch".


Nathan Diament, Director of Public Policy for the OU's IPA (Institute of Political Affairs) in his letter to the Mayor noted, "A ban on circumcisions below the age of eighteen would be a violation of the First Amendment rights of many, including Jews and Muslims who for religious reasons circumcise children. Such a ban would effectively tell Jews and not only Orthodox Jews, but Jews of all denominations, that they are unwelcome in San Francisco. This is not the America, or the California that we hold up to the world" (to read the full body of the letter, click: OU Writes Letter to San Francisco Mayor or visit:

http://www.ou.org/public_affairs/article/orthodox_union_writes_letter_to_san_francisco_mayor_newsom_regarding_c/).

Intactivist Lloyd Schofield, the man behind SF's proposed circumcision ban was quoted by the San Francisco Chronicle as saying, "The base of our argument is you're spending incredible amounts of money doing painful and damaging surgery to an unwilling patient."


But as an observant Jewish mother who circumcised her sons, I can't help but wonder. What about all those professionals who routinely convince parents to spend incredible amounts of money doing painful and damaging surgery (extracting healthy permanent teeth), to unwilling patients who are then tortured over a period of years with mouthfuls of sharp metal objects?


So what's all this fuss about circumcision? I can't wait to see a San Fran ban on orthodontics!

See my message on Hannukah in The Soapbox Speaks.  T.Y., Editor]

The Story of Chanukah

Chanukah is a Jewish holiday, also known as the Festival of lights. Hanukkah is a Hebrew word meaning "dedication". (It also has other spellings in English, such as Chanukah, Hannukah, Hanukah, Chanuka, Chanukkah, Hanuka, Channukah, Hanukka, Hanaka, Haneka, Hanika and Khanukkah.)

 

Hanukkah begins on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, and the holiday is celebrated for eight days. Since in Jewish tradition the Hebrew calendar date starts at sunset, the first evening of Hanukkah starts after the sunset of the 24th of Kislev. This is usually the evening before the date shown for the first day of Hanukkah on the Gregorian calendars that include it. The start of Hanukkah usually falls in December but occasionally is in late November.

 

Always an important holiday to religious Jews, Hanukkah gained unusual importance with many assimilated secular Jewish families in twentieth century America, who did not consider themselves religious, yet wanted an alternative to Christmas celebrations that often coincide with Hanukkah.Hanukkah commemorates two main historical events:

 

1. The triumph of Judaism's spiritual values as embodied in its Torah (symbolized by the Menorah) over Hellenistic civilization which had attempted to Hellenize (culturally assimilate) the Jews away from practicing Judaism's commandments.

 

2. The victory of the ancient Jewish Hasmoneans over the Seleucid Empire when Judah Maccabee and his brothers defeated overwhelming forces and rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem, almost two centuries before the common era. However, because Jews do not glorify war and because of Judaism's dislike for the Hasmonean later ungodly behavior, the holiday has never emphasized these military aspects but has concentrated on celebrating the rededication and the associated miracle of the Hanukah lights as described in the Talmud.

 

The festival is observed in Jewish homes by the kindling of special Hanukkah lights on each of the festival's eight nights.

 

The story of Hanukkah is preserved in the books of 1 Maccabees and 2 Maccabees. These books are not part of the Hebrew Bible, but are part of the deuterocanonical historical and religious material preserved in the Septuagint; this material was not later codified by Jews as part of the Bible, but was so codified by Catholics and Eastern Orthodox. Another, probably later, source is the Megillat Antiokhos - a text ascribed to the Maccabees themselves by Saadia Gaon, but more likely written around the first or second century CE.

 

In the Talmud

The miracle of Hanukkah is referred to in the Talmud, but not in the books of the Maccabees. The Gemara, in tractate Shabbat 21b, says that after the occupiers had been driven from the Temple, the Maccabees discovered that almost all of the ritual oil had been profaned. (They needed ritually purified olive oil to light a Menorah to rededicate the Temple.) They found only a single container that was still sealed by the High Priest, with enough oil for a single day. They lit this, and miraculously, that oil burned for eight days (the time it took to have new oil pressed and made ready). A story similar in character, and obviously older in date, is the one alluded to in 2 Maccabees 1:18 et seq., according to which the relighting of the altar-fire by Nehemiah was due to a miracle which occurred on the twenty-fifth of Kislev, and which appears to be given as the reason for the selection of the same date for the rededication of the altar by Judah Maccabeus.

 

The Talmud presents three customs: lighting one light each night per household, one light each night for each member of the household, or, the most pious method, where the number of candles changed each night. There was a dispute over how the last option was to be performed: either display eight lamps on the first night of the festival, and reduce the number on each successive night; or begin with one lamp the first night, increasing the number till the eighth night. The followers of Shammai favored the former custom; the followers of Hillel advocated the latter. As is the case in most such disputes, Jews today follow Hillel. Except in times of danger, the lights were to be placed outside one's door or in the window closest to the street. Josephus believed that the lights were symbolic of the liberty obtained by the Jews on the day that Hanukkah commemorates. Rashi, in a note to Shabbat 21b, says their purpose is to publicize the miracle.

 

The Story of Chanukah

Around 200 BCE Jews lived as an autonomous people in the land of Israel, which at this time was controlled by the Seleucid King of Syria. The Jewish people paid taxes to Syria and accepted its legal authority, and by and large were free to follow their own faith, maintain their own jobs, and engage in trade.By 175 BCE Antiochus IV Epiphanes ascended to the Seleucid throne. At first little changed, but under his reign Jews were gradually forced to violate the precepts of their faith. Jews rebelled at having to do this. Under the reign of Antiochus IV, the Temple in Jerusalem was looted, Jews were massacred, and Judaism was effectively outlawed.

 

In 167 BCE Antiochus ordered an altar to Zeus erected in the Temple. Mattathias, a Jewish priest, and his five sons John, Simon, Eleazar, Jonathan, and Judah led a rebellion against Antiochus. Judah became known as Judah Maccabee (Judah The Hammer). By 166 BCE Mattathias had died, and Judah took his place as leader. By 165 BCE the Jewish revolt against the Seleucid monarchy was successful. The Temple was liberated and rededicated.The festival of Hanukkah was instituted by Judah Maccabee and his brothers to celebrate this event. (1 Macc. iv. 59). After having recovered Jerusalem and the Temple, Judah ordered the Temple to be cleansed, a new altar to be built in place of the polluted one and new holy vessels to be made. When the fire had been kindled anew upon the altar and the lamps of the candlestick lit, the dedication of the altar was celebrated for eight days amid sacrifices and songs (1 Macc. iv. 36).

 

A number of historians believe that the reason for the eight day celebration was that the first Hanukkah was in effect a belated celebration of the festival of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles (Macc. x. 6 and i. 9). During the war the Jews were not able to celebrate Sukkot properly. Sukkot also lasts for eight days, and was a holiday in which the lighting of lamps played a prominent part during the Second Temple period (Suk.v. 2-4). Lights were also kindled in the household, and the popular name of the festival was, therefore, according to Josephus (Jewish Antiquities xii. 7, § 7, #323) the "Festival of Lights" ("And from that time to this we celebrate this festival, and call it Lights").

 

It has been noted that Jewish festivals are connected to the harvesting of the Biblical seven fruits which Israel was famed for. Pesach is a celebration of the barley harvest, Shavuot of the wheat, Sukkot of the figs, dates, pomegranates and grapes, and Hanukkah of the olives. The olive harvest is in November and olive oil would be ready in time for Hanukkah in December.

Who Were The Maccabees?

 

The tenacious, deeply faithful Judah Maccabee and his band of four brothers are the heroes of the Chanukah story. But who was this fivesome and how do they come to lead the Jewish people to national and religious freedom during the 2nd century BCE?

 

Their story began when a Greek ruler tried to forces Mattathias, a Jew from the priestly class, to offer a sacrifice to a pagan god. Not only did Mattathias refuse, he murdered the Greek official. The Greek king Antiochus launched a series of reprisals, including desecrating the Holy Temple in Jerusalem by filling it with statues of Greek gods. Mattathias and his five sons rose up against these actions and fought for Jewish liberation of Judea.

 

Mattathias' sons can to be known as the Maccabees, which comes from the root of the Hebrew word for "hammer" since the band of insurgents were said to strike hammer-like blows against their enemies.

 

The patriarch Mattathias was killed shortly after the fighting against the Greeks began. His son Judas (also known as Judah) took over as the leader of the rebels as is credited with great tactical ability and unparalleled bravery. By the end of the war against the Greeks, the only brother to have survived was Shimon (Simon).

 

The heroes of the Chanukah story, the Macccabees, more commonly known as the Hasmoneans, were guided by their fierce and steadfast belief in G-d. In fact, Jewish sources credit the Maccabees' faith for their tenacity in driving out the Greeks from Judea. Immediately upon their victory, the Maccabees rededicated the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which had been desecrated by the polytheistic Greeks during their rule of the city.

 

In the longer-term, the Maccabees' victory preserved the right of Jews to practice their monotheistic faith and reestablished the national independence of the Jewish people in Judea for one hundred years, until 63 BCE.

WikiLeaks affair: Why truth matters

 

Osama Al Sharif

 

IT is not a leak but a deluge. This is how the release of 391,832 classified intelligence documents on the whistle-blower website WikiLeaks, last week, on America’s war in Iraq looked like. The information dump is the biggest of its kind in history. It will take many months for researchers and investigative journalists to sift through this and successive releases in order to piece together missing clues on what exactly happened in Iraq since the US-Anglo invasion of 2003. But the revelations have been stunning concerning the actual civilian death toll, cover-ups of torture in Iraqi prisons, Iran’s sinister role in arming Shiite militias, the transgressions of private contractors, the implication of incumbent Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki in running death squads and inflaming sectarian violence, among others. The implications will be far-fetched and will last for many years to come. It is no wonder that the Pentagon and the State Department have denounced the release of this information as they did in previous cases. Their allegation that making such information public will endanger American lives and help the insurgents is preposterous. If anything the WikiLeaks war diaries will become the foundation for future investigations into one of the most controversial, unjustified and unethical wars in modern times. The revelations do only deal with what was actually taking place in Iraq at the height of the war, but bring to light distortions and lies concerning American motives, military conduct, political cover-ups, flawed administration policies, corruption and others.


The wealth of information of day-to-day observations and actions in the field by US military officers will make the Iraq War along with the ongoing one in Afghanistan one of the most documented military adventures in history. The wars are not seen through the eyes of embedded reporters, investigative journalists and future historians, but through hundreds of thousands of written communications produced by combatants in the battlefield. Never before has the big picture been so available through the reconstruction of minute details. The saying that truth is the first casualty of war aptly applies to Iraq. Public opinion and world governments have been led astray by US politicians who lied, fabricated facts and amplified fears about Iraq’s alleged WMD capabilities.


Even in the absence of a clear UN mandate to wage war against Iraq, the US and Britain invaded a sovereign country, toppled its government and presided over a systemic dismantling of the state and its infrastructure. In the process the US occupation of Iraq triggered an internal and regional power struggle that sucked Iraq into an inferno involving Al-Qaeda terrorists, insurgents and sectarian militias. The brutal fact is that the number of civilian deaths, as the WikiLeaks documents reveal, was five times larger than was first announced. At least 15,000 civilian deaths have not been unaccounted for.


The Obama administration would like to make us believe that the war in Iraq has come to an end. But this is not entirely true. The country is still on the brink and the prospects of civil peace and reconciliation are as remote today as they were few years ago. The reality is that the United States has abandoned Iraq and the Iraqi people, leaving them to battle internal divisions and regional interference. The WikiLeaks affair presents an interesting precedent in today’s complex world. For starters it tells us that it is difficult to withhold the truth about something as big as a war in a foreign country in this digital age.


WikiLeaks would not have survived if it was not for the marvels of the information technology. The Internet has proved itself as a potent weapon in the hands of activists who have dedicated themselves to digging up the facts. It is difficult to doubt the veracity of digital documents, videos, voice recordings and classified messages. In addition, the prevalence of the Internet makes it impossible for any government to cover up the truth. The instance the war documents were released on WikiLeaks the information became available to billions of people all over the world.


By the same token the brilliant success of WikiLeaks is a triumph for investigative journalism in this day and age. It is further proof that press freedom is one of the biggest accomplishments of human civilization. This trove of information will be studied and analyzed and will bring to light details about atrocities and war crimes, conspiracies and cover-ups, that governments and perpetrators hoped to bury forever. It is also a triumph for the universal ideals of freedom and justice, of a system of checks and balances and of the right of the public to know and make others accountable. Even though the West is responsible for the calamity of Iraq and its troubles, it is also the source of hope and change in our world. Western tenets have allowed something like WikiLeaks, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and others to appear and make governments accountable. It is a message to the rest of the world that democratic societies still work in spite of the many flaws that bedevil the system. But it will be naïve to think that all wrongs will be corrected simply because of the WikiLeaks revelations.


The United States is still waging a controversial war in Afghanistan where mistakes and crimes committed in Iraq are repeated. It is advocating Israeli policies of land grab and ethnic cleansing in Palestinian territories. Its policies in Sudan and Yemen remain questionable and may in the long run cause the death of millions. It is ironic that the WikiLeaks affair has created reverberations all over the world but hardly in Iraq itself. The incumbent prime minister accused the independent organization of attempting to sabotage the formation of a new Iraqi government. Truth should matter to the people of Iraq, especially as they find themselves on the edge of a dangerous chasm!—Arab News

Wikileaks: the truth is not treason

Ryan Gallagher, 3 December 2010

"There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy." – Joseph Pulitzer.

At approximately 6pm on Wednesday, Amazon ousted wikileaks.org from its servers after concerted and aggressive political pressure from America’s Homeland Security Committee.  The move came after three solid days of ‘Cablegate’ – the largest intelligence leak in history.  251,287 dispatches from more than 250 US embassies and consulates, to be published slowly but surely in the weeks and months ahead.  Among them are allegations of corruption, cover-ups and secret collusion between US and UK officials; dirty tactics exposed on a grand scale.  Politicians, diplomats and corporations across the world must now be trembling.  Could they be next?


Wikileaks' co-founder and spokesman, Julian Assange

As international reaction testifies, the repercussions of Cablegate are massive. Wikileaks is changing the world without invitation, and the political establishment does not approve.  A global witch-hunt for Julian   Assange, Wikileaks’ co-founder and figurehead, is now in full swing.  Assange should be "hunted" and "executed" say prominent American politicians, who want him extradited and charged under the country’s 1917 Espionage Act, a law introduced to combat socialists and pacifists during the Red Scare.  “Obama should put out a contract [to have Assange assassinated] and maybe use a drone or something,”said Professor Tom Flanagan, a former advisor to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.  While in France, the birthplace of the Enlightenment, Wikileaks was described as a “threat to democracy”. 

Even David Cameron, a devout convert to the church of “A New Politics”, has strongly condemned Wikileaks for their hand in Cablegate.  “We condemn the unauthorised release of classified information," his spokesman said on Monday.  “Governments need to be able to operate on a confidential basis when dealing with this kind of information.”  Yet it was only 10 months ago, in February, that Cameron stood before an audience and proclaimed his commitment to open government and transparency.  “Sunlight is the best disinfectant,” he said at the time

In February, though, Cameron was not Prime Minister.  He was still masquerading as a fresh faced candidate for change – a new alternative to the ugly political past.  He could afford to pontificate about wild things like “open government” and “transparency” because there was no way to test him on it.  He could tell the public what they wanted to hear, and then backtrack from his position once in government – the oldest trick in the book.  His Cablegate position confirms this is indeed what he has done, quite blatantly, on the principle of “transparency”.      

So far Cameron’s strategy on Cablegate has been one of avoidance and denial.  "We are not going to get drawn into the detail of the documents," said his spokesman.  The Prime Minister was instead in Zurich yesterday alongside David Beckham and Prince William, making a failed bid to host the World Cup in 2018.  But he cannot evade the encroaching reality of this exposé for much longer.  According to the cables released so far, British officials not only promised to protect US interests during the Iraq inquiry, but also made a deal with the US to allow the country to keep cluster bombs in the UK despite the ban on the munitions signed by Gordon Brown.  The cluster bombs issue, it is said, was deliberately concealed from parliament and was approved by then Foreign Secretary David Miliband. 

Clearly this raises serious questions about what appears to be a festering culture of backroom democracy across the western world, in which Britain is complicit.  Diplomatic secrecy, as critics of Wikileaks argue, may well be in some cases entirely justified and necessary – however not if it means nurturing what Assange himself describes as the “corruption of governance".

The central problem, it seems, is that this “corruption of governance” runs so deep.  It is embedded within the very DNA of the political class and has been for generations, hence the high-level, across the board political resistance and opposition to the brand of total transparency advocated by Wikileaks. 

Yet as politicians and other powerful figures call for the head of Assange, in their haste they have forgotten he is merely the figurehead of the organisation.  The human face of Wikileaks, he is bold, brave and deeply principled.  His commitment and dedication to truth and justice should be applauded.  But they could hang, draw and quarter Assange and Wikileaks would still survive – thrive, even.  “You can kill a man but you can't kill an idea,” as the civil rights activist Medgar Evers once said. 

And an idea is precisely what Wikileaks has become.  It is no longer simply a website – it is a pure expression of democratic ideals, a philosophy realised by the force of technology.  The powerful may condemn and attempt to repress Wikileaks and all it represents, but the situation has long since spun far from their control.  Facilitated by the internet, a new battleground has been established.  All traditions now hang in the balance and all bets are off.

The ADL and UN-Watch call on countries to boycott 'Durban III': but who is racist?

 

According to this yesterday Jerusalem POST article, the US-based ADL and the Geneva-based UN Watch call on countries to boycott 'Durban III'.


Earlier the same day, the UN general assembly voted and approved a resolution to hold a summit commemorating the Durban Conference Against Racism. The US voted against this resolution.


The ADL and UN Watch claim that Durban has been hijacked by Africans and Arabs.
But who is racist and who is hijacking the word "racism"?

 

They accuse the Durban Conference to be antisemitic simply because it likened Zionism to racism.


But in a series of reports in the Jerusalem Post, we discover that many demonstrations against Africans take place in Israel.


For instance just last Tuesday, 
as the JPOST reports, hundreds of Tel Aviv residents demonstrated against African refugees and migrant workers.


The same article reports that many of those demonstrators had taken part in a rally against Arab-Israelis just the night before; they accuse the Arab-Israelis of a large scale attempt to seduce Jewish girls.


They claim they are not racist, yet they want to displace all the Africans to remote location and they eventually use the derogatory Hebrew term "Kushi" to denote African origin.


They claim they are not racist, yet they vow to protect "Israel as a Jewish state and a state for its citizens".


And the paper quotes a statement of the Hotline for Migrant Workers saying “Israel is facing a wave of hate crimes, crimes whose main motive is the hatred of foreigners.”


The article continues and I quote:


"[On Saturday, three teenage girls born to African migrant parents were attacked and severely beaten by a mob of teenagers while walking to their homes in the Hatikva neighborhood.


That same night, someone tried to torch an apartment in Ashdod housing seven Sudanese citizens. The assailants set a blazing tire outside the front door of the apartment, and five of the seven residents were lightly hurt by smoke inhalation before they managed to break the burglar bars and flee through a window.


Tuesday’s protest came around four months after a group of 25 rabbis from south Tel Aviv neighborhoods released a letter warning Jews not to rent their homes to illegal immigrants and foreign workers.

...
They live better than us and they don’t have to pay taxes or national insurance institute
.]" (end of quotation)


But what it means for Africans who have to leave their home countries while foreigners have the best positions and even control-advice their government and economy?


According to
another JPOST article, the Interior Minister qualified the "African infiltrators" as "an existential danger to Israel".

 

He was before a Knesset Committee on Foreign Workers whose chairman described the African immigration as "a malignant cancer that spreads to the entire country."

GLADYS AND JAMIE SCOTT

(EXAMPLES OF SAVAGE RACISM IN THE US JUSTICE SYSTEM)

 

Gladys and Jamie Scott are returning home for the first time in 16 years.


This evening, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour suspended their sentences -- handed down in the extreme and biased ruling of Judge Marcus Gordon that condemned each of the women to double life sentences for an $11 robbery.


The moment I landed in Jackson, Mississippi, Governor Barbour called to tell me about the suspension. And as I prepare to meet with him tomorrow, along with Derrick Johnson, President of the Mississippi State Conference of the NAACP, I want to be clear about one thing: This vindication is because of [the public outcry against the racism in America].


The Scott sisters have read [many] notes and letters of support. Now please join me in welcoming them home. Sign the NAACP's welcome home card to Gladys and Jamie:


Jamie and Gladys always described the moment the police arrested them as a nightmare. Not just for themselves, but for their family -- for their children.


So we united together. We fought the injustice -- just as the NAACP has done for more than 100 years.


When we couldn't visit the Scott sisters, we wrote letters and notes to let them know we remembered them. When we wouldn't be heard by the political and judicial powers that be, we spoke louder. And because of that perseverance the nightmare is finally over.


Celebrate this victory for Gladys and Jamie, and also for the NAACP community, by sending them a welcome home message. They would love to hear from you:


Last time I was in Mississippi was to file the petition for clemency with the Scott sisters' lawyer, Chokwe Lumumba, and Charles Hampton, Vice President of the Mississippi State Conference of the NAACP.


Today, I get to return to show the world that the NAACP will not stand idly by as our sisters and brothers are wrongfully accused.


I am humbled by how far support has taken the Scott sisters on the road to justice and freedom. And with every step forward, we will secure a brighter future for their children, our children and our children's children.

Britain's Brainiest Family is Black and Has 9-Year-Old High School-Bound Twins

These kinds of stories just make you proud! A set of 9-year-old twins, Paula and Peter Imafidon, prodigies who are about to enter high school and make British history as the youngest to do so. The couple's oldest daughter, Anne-Marie, is now 20, but at age 13, she won a British government scholarship to take undergraduate courses at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Christiana, 17, their other daughter, is the youngest student ever to study at the undergraduate level in any British University at the age of 11. Youngest daughter, Samantha, now 12, passed two rigorous high school–level mathematics and statistics exams at the age of 6. When brains were handed out, the Imafidon family were certainly out there front and center.

FOR IT IS NIGH AT HAND

 

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

 

A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

 

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

 

The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

 

Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

 

Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

 

They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

 

Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

 

They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

 

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

 

And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD isgreat and very terrible; and who can abide it?

 

Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

 

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

 

Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?

 

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

 

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

 

Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

 

Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

 

Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:

 

But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.

 

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

 

Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

 

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

 

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

 

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

 

And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 

And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

 

And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

 

And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

 

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

 

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 Second Chapter

 

 

SHOW US THY MERCY, O LORD,

AND GRANT US THY SALVATION

 

“LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

 

Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

 

Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

 

Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

 

Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

 

Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

 

Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

 

I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

 

Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

 

Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

 

Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

 

Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

 

Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.”   Psalm Eighty-fifth Chapter

 

 

AMONG THE gods

THERE IS NONE LIKE UNTO THEE, O LORD;

NEITHER ARE THERE ANY WORKS LIKE UNTO THY WORKS

 

“Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.

 

Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

 

Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.

 

Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

 

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

 

Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

 

In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

 

Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

 

All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

 

For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

 

Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

 

I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

 

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

 

O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

 

But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

 

O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

 

Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.”   Psalm Eighty-sixth Chapter

KING SOLOMON'S PRAYER

 

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: Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.

 

Therefore now, LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me. And now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified, which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father.

 

But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

 

Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day: That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.

 

And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

 

If any man trespass against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to cause him to swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house: Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.

 

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.

 

When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

 

If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpillar; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house: Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)  That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.

 

Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for thy name's sake; (For they shall hear of thy great name, and of thy strong hand, and of thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house; Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.

 

If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name: Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.

 

If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

 

Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; 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.

 

For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.

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.”

Proverbs 22:6

 

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.”

Deuteronomy 29:29

 

“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.”

FATHER, remember your Covenant with Abraham and to his SEED

And remember

Your promises to those who seek YOU in Truth

And who acknowledge and observe

Your Book of the Law

And your WORD to your Prophets.

Father, remember that

YOU are a GOD of Multiple Mercies

And SAVE us for your Holy Name’s Sake.

 

***

 

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!

 

ENJOY!

 

(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.”

Exodus 3:15

 

"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 31:12,13

 

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…681 - 690 for the JANUARY 2011 LAWKEEPERS JOURNAL… for ages ten (10) and above:

 

681.

What element did the CREATOR GOD of Israel use to humble the Children of Israel in the Wilderness to prove them?

 

682.

Other than because the GOD of Israel gave the Children of Israel the Land of Canaan, why did HE drive out the Gentile nations?

 

683.

How long was Moses in the Mount when he received the Two Tables of the Covenant?
