New Revelations About Slaves, Slave Trade

 

By David Eltis and David Richardson

 

Story Created: Jan 16, 2011 at 11:40 PM ECT

Story Updated: Jan 16, 2011 at 11:40 PM ECT

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 realise that it was Africa, not Europe, that formed the wellspring of this repopulation process.

In the three and a quarter 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 organised 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 travelled.

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 organised 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 organised 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 US slave trade. New York and Charleston, South Carolina, were also major centres.

A profile of those on board ships 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.

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.

FROM THE DESK OF THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE LAWKEEPERS, CO.:

 

What’s in a Dream / Vision

 

There are many Israelites who claim to have both visions and dreams, this is very probable but what beats me is when these Israelites claim that their dreams and visions are from G-D for the people.

 

Why does this bother me? Well for one thing some of these Israelites claim they are prophets, so what does the Tanakh have to say about this?

 

9. Her gates are sunk into the ground; He has ruined and broken her bars; her king and princes are [exiled] among the heathens, [and] there is no more teaching; moreover, her prophets obtain no vision from the Lord. 14. Your prophets have seen false and senseless visions for you, and they have not exposed your iniquity to straighten out your backsliding, but have prophesied for you false and misleading oracles. Lamentations 2:9,14

 

1. Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the flocks of My pasture! says the Lord.                          א.

2. Therefore, so says the Lord God of Israel concerning the shepherds: You who pasture My people, you have scattered My flocks and have driven them away and have not taken care of them; behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your deeds, says the Lord.                      ב.

3. And I will gather the remnant of My flocks from all the lands where I have driven them, and I will restore them to their dwellings and they shall be fruitful and multiply.                ג.

4. And I will set up shepherds over them and they shall pasture them, and they shall no longer fear nor shall they be dismayed, nor shall [any of them] be missing, says the Lord.                ד.

5. Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, when I will set up of David a righteous shoot, and he shall reign a king and prosper, and he shall perform judgment and righteousness in the land.                     ה.

6. In his days, Judah shall be saved and Israel shall dwell safely, and this is his name that he shall be called, The Lord is our righteousness.                    ו.

7. Therefore, behold days are coming, says the Lord, when they shall no longer say, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,"             ז.

8. But, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up and Who brought the seed of the house of Israel from the northland and from all the lands where I have driven them, and they shall dwell on their land."                 ח.

9. Because of the prophets my heart is broken within me, my bones shake, I was like a drunken man and like a man whom wine has overcome, because of the Lord and because of His holy words.                       ט.

10. For the land is full of adulterers, for because of oaths the land mourns, the dwellings in the wilderness are dried out, and their eagerness was evil and their power not right.                  י.

11. For both prophet and priest are false; even in My house have I found their evil, says the Lord.                         יא.

12. Therefore, their way shall be for them like slippery places in the dark; let them be thrust and fall therein, for I will bring evil upon them, the year of their visitation, says the Lord.                   יב.

13. And in the prophets of Samaria I saw unseemliness; they prophesied by Baal and misled My people Israel.                       יג.

14. And in the prophets of Jerusalem I saw a horrible thing, committing adultery and going with falseness, and they encouraged evil-doers, that none returns from his evil; all of them were to Me as Sodom and her inhabitants as Gomorrah.                        יד.

15. Therefore, so said the Lord of Hosts concerning the prophets: Behold I will feed them wormwood and give them poisonous water to drink, for from the prophets of Jerusalem has falseness emanated to the whole land.                         טו.

16. So said the Lord of Hosts: Do not hearken to the words of the prophets who prophesy for you; they mislead you. The vision of their heart they speak, not from the mouth of the Lord.                  טז.

17. They say to those who despise Me, "The Lord has spoken, 'You shall have peace, ' " and [to] everyone who follows the view of his heart they say, "No evil shall befall you."                   יז.

18. For who stood in the council of the Lord and will see and hear His word? He who hearkened to His word and listened.             יח.

19. Behold a storm from the Lord has gone forth [with] fury, yea, a whirling storm, on the heads of the wicked it shall rest.                    יט.

20. The Lord's anger shall not return until He executes it and until He fulfills the plans of His heart. At the end of days, you shall consider it perfectly.                        כ.

21. I did not send the prophets yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.                           כא.

22. And if they stood in My council, they should have let My people hear My words, so that they bring them back from their evil way and from the evil of their deeds.                 כב.

23. Am I a God from near, says the Lord, and not a God from afar?                  כג.

24. Can a man hide in secret places that I should not see him? says the Lord. Do I not fill the heavens and the earth? says the Lord.                        כד.

25. I heard what the prophets said, those who prophesy in My name falsely, saying, "I have dreamed, I have dreamed."                  כה.

26. How long [will this be]? Is it in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? But they are prophets of the deceit of their hearts,                        כו.

27. Who think to cause My people to forget My name with their dreams that they tell, one to another, as their forefathers forgot My name through Baal.             כז.

28. The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream, and who has My word, let him tell My word as truth. What has the straw to do with the wheat? says the Lord.                      כח.

29. Is not My word so like fire? says the Lord, and like a hammer that shatters a rock?                      כט.

30. Therefore, behold I am against the prophets, says the Lord, those who steal My words from one another.                    ל.(some confirm with others why?)

31. Behold I am against the prophets, says the Lord, those who train their tongues and say, "He says,"                        לא.

32. Behold I am against those who prophesy with false dreams, says the Lord, and they tell them and mislead My people with their falsehoods and with their bewilderment, but I neither sent them nor commanded them, and they have not availed this people, says the Lord.                         לב.

33. Now if this people or the prophet or priest asks you, saying, "What is the burden of the Lord?" And you shall say to them, "What burden? And I will forsake you, says the Lord."                לג.

34. And the prophet and the priest and the people who will say, "The burden of the Lord," I will visit retribution upon that man and upon his household.                 לד.

35. So shall you say each one to his friend and each one to his brother, "What did the Lord reply?" or "What did the Lord speak?"                        לה.

36. And "the burden of the Lord" you shall no longer mention, for the burden shall be to the man of His word although you pervert the words of the living God, the Lord of Hosts, our God.               לו.

37. So shall you say to the prophet, "What has the Lord replied to you?" Or "What has the Lord spoken? "                         לז.

38. But if you say, "The burden of the Lord," therefore, so says the Lord, since you have said this thing, "the burden of the Lord," and I sent to you saying, "You shall not say, 'the burden of the Lord,' "                לח.

39. Therefore, here I am, and I will exile you, and I will forsake you and the city that I gave you and your forefathers from before My presence.                    לט.

40. And I will place upon you everlasting shame and everlasting embarrassment that shall not be forgotten.

 

8. For so said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets who are in your midst or your diviners mislead you, neither shall you heed your dreams, which you cause to dream.                       ח.

9. For they prophesy to you falsely in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord. Jeremiah 29:8-9

 

7. These, too, erred because of wine and strayed because of strong wine; priest and prophet erred because of strong wine, they became corrupt because of wine; they went astray because of strong wine, they erred against the seer, they caused justice to stumble.                      ז.

8. For all tables were filled with vomit and ordure, without place.                        ח.

9. Whom shall he teach knowledge and to whom shall he explain the message? To those weaned from milk, removed from breasts?                    ט.

10. For a precept for a precept, a precept for a precept, a line for a line, a line for a line, a little there, a little there.                         י.

11. For with distorted speech and in another language, does he speak to this people.                    יא.

12. For he said to them, "This is the rest; give rest to the weary, and this is the tranquillity," but they would not listen.                 יב.

13. And the word of the Lord shall be for them a precept for a precept, a precept for a precept, a line for a line, a line for a line, a little there, a little there, in order that they go and stumble backwards and be broken, and be trapped and caught. Isaiah 28:7-13

 

9. We have not seen our signs; there is no longer a prophet, and no one with us knows how long. Psalm 74:9

 

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

 

False assertions or what seems pleasing to the ear. According to scripture the prophets and visions have gone we are in the crucible of fire I am not going to go into great detail for it is not necessary but I will say this do not be swayed by these false assertions see Isaiah 48:10.

 

You have not heard the prophecy unless G-D proclaims it and it will be in line with HIS word, Isaiah 48:6-8.

 

Some even think prophecy has no end Jeremiah 18:18.

 

20. But the prophet who intentionally speaks a word in My name, which I did not command him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.           

21. Now if you say to yourself, "How will we know the word that the Lord did not speak?"              

22. If the prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, and the thing does not occur and does not come about, that is the thing the Lord did not speak. The prophet has spoken it wantonly; you shall not be afraid of him. Deuteronomy 18:20-22.

 

A Test to know if it is real or false did it come to pass? Xtians and many others have false prophecies, vain imaginations as promised by G-D. Israelites are now like the nations in that not only do we follow false gods and are idolaters, but we also have division in practicing our way of life, some follow Sabbath some do not. Some follow false leaders and vain imaginations. This can be compared to Methodist, Pentecostals, j witnesses etc., etc all working from their vain imaginations and proved wrong, time and time again.

 

If we look at some of the dreams/visions in scripture they happened for a specific reason:

 

Genesis  28:10,  Jacobs vision of assurance and protection,

Genesis 31:10-13 The dream tells Jacob the matriarch of Israel how to profit and gives instruction.

Genesis 31:24 G-D warns laban in his dream.

Genesis 32:25-30 Jacob is again assured and given the name Israel

 

Josephs dreams are also given for a specific purpose and what is more Joseph stated G-D interprets the dreams for him, see Shabbat readings-Selah posting for 29th January 2011.

 

Prayer and repentance is the way forward i.e. Exod 32:11-14

Deuteronomy 4:29  to be read in conjunction with above, return and seek HIM do not wait for visions and do not think because we are Israel  we will be saved only a remnant will, see Ezekiel 20, Jeremiah 15:11 and Exodus 32:9-10 if not for Moses we would have already perished and today we have no prophets to plead see Isaiah 64:4-6.

 

What we do have is Torah see Deu 30:11-14, Deu 32:46-47 not visions or prophets but the word. Only by obeying the word can we be saved, the word is the way our CREATOR G-D communicates with us.

 

G-D gave us Torah to teach to our children, and it does not state we learn or are instructed by visions. Did not G-D relate the Torah to Moses verbally? Exodus 20:19, Exodus 23:22.Exodus 24:7-8 Deuteronomy 4:12-14, Deuteronomy 4:26. Moses did not work according to visions, and he was the greatest prophet.   Many prophets did not have visions but, they prophesied.  This prophecy I am referring to is relating to the word and this is the most important thing the prophets could do. It is xtains and Judaism that made it into some magical thing. We are instructed time and time again to obey the word, and teach it to our children, Leviticus 18:30, Leviticus 19:37, Leviticus 26:3, Deuteronomy 4:40 Deuteronomy 6:1-2, Deuteronomy 6:7.

 

Psalm 74 tells us to listen to the word and to make it known to future generations.

 

1. A maskil of Asaph. Hearken, my people, to my instruction, extend your ear to the words of my mouth.                       א.

2. I shall open my mouth with a parable; I shall express riddles from time immemorial.                    ב.

3. That we heard and we knew them, and our forefathers told us.                       ג.

4. We shall not hide from their sons; to the last generation they will recite the praises of the Lord, and His might and His wonders, which He performed.                   ד.

5. And He established testimony in Jacob, and He set down a Torah in Israel, which He commanded our forefathers to make them known to their sons.                         ה.

6. In order that the last generation might know, sons who will be born should tell their sons.                      ו.

7. And they should put their hope in God, and not forget the deeds of God, and keep His commandments.

 

Look what the book of Job has to say:

14. For God answers in one way and in two, to one who does not see it.                      יד.

15. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls upon men, in the slumbers on the bed Job 33:14-15.

 

I have learned in my life that G-D speaks through HIS word and it is put tangibly into my life whether for blessing or curse, and it comes to pass. I always seem to find the answer in the Holy Scriptures. I have dreamed dreams, and sometimes they have been repetitive.  I even believe I have had a vision of sort, but, and I say but, all of these appeared to be either warnings or of a personal nature.  In other words, they were not to be shared with others. What is more, they appear to be accurate.

 

I suppose we had better look at Joel, as many believe these visions and dreams are happening now and that we must heed to them.

 

1. And it shall come to pass afterwards that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy; your elders shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Joel 3:1

 

I cannot make it any simpler as to when this time is.  Read the chapter before and after, that is Chapters 2 and 4, and it sheds some light on when these dreams and visions will occur.

 

What happened to the prophets of old?  Nehemiah 9:36 They killed the prophets who warned us, and it is the same today.  We warn (we are not prophets but just Israelites) but are instead criticised by false prophets.

 

We need to follow Torah not our vain imaginations, and we need to act now and not wait for dreams/visions, prophets, teachers, messiahs, or miracles.

 

The word is all we have to live by, and if it is reiterated by Israelites, then why argue with it? Jeremiah 11:8, Jeremiah 18:12 vain imaginations=mediums Leviticus 19:31 also see 1 Sam. 28:6;15.  We do not hear either. We need to unite in the truth and plead with our CREATOR G-D to heed our cry.  We do not need to rely on dreams and visions which do not reflect what is stated in our Holy books.

 

Prove your dreams before you start speaking!!!!

Tribute to the New Moon:

Current Moon Phases

 

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

 

<<< FEBRUARY 3,4,5 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 JerusalemTHREE 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:

 

“…Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.”   Exodus 24:18

 

How would you explain why this verse is so specific about the time Moses spent in the Mount?

 

***

 

“Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars. She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river. Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her? The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it. Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;”   Psalm 80:8 – 14

 

For what does this metaphor represent?  

 

***

 

Q AND A (QUESTION AND ANSWER)

 

Why is it imperative that Israelites leave the lands of our captivity?

 

There are many reasons why the Children of Israel must leave out of Gentile lands and return to our heritage.  One reason foremost is to serve and worship Our GOD of Israel.  That is a given!  But for another reason, as well, that is equally as important, concerns discerning between right and wrong and becoming a Righteous and Holy Nation of People for Our GOD of Israel.  This is what HE has waited for, and this is what HE so much deserves.

 

“Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.”   Malachi 3:18

 

This verse is just more evidence citing  the significance of Jeremiah 31:341 – 34 and Ezekiel 20:34 – 38 concerning the Holy ONE of Israel taking the SEED of Jacob into the Wilderness and putting HIS LAW in their hearts and CLEANSING them of the heathenish ways that were learned in exile.  Yes, Israelites must leave out for indeed we can only serve and worship Our GOD of Israel in Jerusalem and in HIS Holy Temple when we become a “Holy” People unto HIM, after HE rids us of our sins and inaccurate ways of interpreting HIS LAW.   

 

“…ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.”   Leviticus 20:26

 

“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”   Deuteronomy 7:6

 

Going into the Wilderness is something we should all strive to do, as this is what’s written, and this is what we are destined to accomplish.

 

“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

 

“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 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.”   Jeremiah 32:39 - 41

 

“I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.”   Ezekiel 11:19,20

 

For GOD’s Sake, we must be cleansed in order that our hearts receive HIS Book of the Law with joy and much delight.  If not, then the Holy ONE wants nothing to do with us.  Enough, HE has had to deal with rebellious and idol worshipping Israelites.  Now, HE wants the cream of the crop, i.e., those who have it in their hearts to seek HIM with all their soul and who are ready to do HIS Will in order to return and be HIS Righteous Servants in every since of this matter.   

 

“Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;”   Isaiah 1:16

 

“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:”   Jeremiah 10:1 - 3

 

“…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.”   Jeremiah 33:8

 

“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 36:24 - 28

 

“Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.”   Ezekiel 36:33 – 38

 

We must be a “Holy” People if we ever expect to serve the GOD of Israel according as HE has caused our existence and formed Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel, and his SEED.

 

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

 

We must go into the Wilderness, as it is written.  To object to leaving the lands of our captivity is not an option.  The Children of Israel who choose not to leave out will pay the consequences.  And those who do leave out and will not be obedient to GOD’s LAW will be purged.

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.

What Causes Cancer? 7 Strange Cancer Claims Explained

 

There's little to fear from everyday products like deodorant, mouthwash, and bras

By Megan Johnson

Posted: October 19, 2010

Bras, deodorant, and mouthwash­—just a few of the everyday products that have been linked to cancer at some point during the past several decades. Preposterous? Not at the time, and new suspects have been added to the list. Here's the real story behind a roll call of ordinary household items that have come under scrutiny:

 [Cancer Prevention: Rethink Your Diet as Well as Your Smoking]

 

Artificial Sweeteners

The link: Calorie watchers scored a win when diet sodas were introduced in the early 1950s. Then lab studies suggested that the sweetener cyclamate caused bladder cancer in rats, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned its use. Then saccharin, the replacement of choice, was also shown to cause tumors in rats. Although saccharin was never banned, all products containing the sweetener were required to carry a cancer warning on their packaging.

 

The reality: No evidence has since emerged that either cyclamate, which is used in other countries, or saccharin causes cancer in humans, according to the National Cancer Institute. Although cyclamate is still banned, saccharin was taken off the government's list of possible carcinogens in 2000, the same year in which saccharin products shed the warning label. The sweetener aspartame has come under suspicion, but scientists have found no increased risk of cancer in humans.

[Should the Food Industry Ban Added Salt and Sugar?]

 

Mouthwash

The link: A handful of studies since the late '70s have tied mouthwash that contains ethanol to oral cancer. Investigators theorize that it may make oral tissues more vulnerable to known carcinogens, such as those in cigarettes.

 

The reality: The evidence against mouthwash is weak, according to the American Dental Association. Studies don't show, for example, that brands with higher alcohol content present a greater risk than those with lesser amounts. Mouthwash is safe when used as directed, says the ADA, which, depending on the product, may mean swishing once or twice daily and not swallowing. People who smoke, have a family history of oral cancer, or have other risk factors may want to choose alcohol-free brands to be on the safe side, the ADA says.

Statins

The link: Could these cholesterol-lowering drugs raise the risk of cancer? A 2007 study inspired this belief when researchers investigating the side effects of certain statins—lovastatin, simvastatin, pravastatin, fluvastatin, and atorvastatin—found that participants taking high doses were more likely to be diagnosed with various cancers, including those of the breast, colon, and prostate.

 

The reality: A 2008 review of 15 clinical trials involving statins cast doubt on the initial results; low LDL cholesterol levels, the reviewers found, were associated with cancer, whether or not participants were taking statins, suggesting that cholesterol levels, not the drugs, were to blame. "This study should reassure those taking statins that they are not increasing their risk of cancer by trying to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease," senior author Richard Karas of Boston's Tufts University School of Medicine said in a statement. A separate review of research involving roughly 170,000 participants found no link between statins and cancer.

 

Cell Phones

The link: In 1993, a man suing the manufacturer of his wife's mobile phone claimed on Larry King Live that the device was responsible for her brain cancer. The broadcast provoked a public outcry, a rash of similar lawsuits, and millions of dollars poured into studying whether radio waves emitted by cell phones could be harmful.

 

The reality: The largest study to date, published last spring, could neither confirm nor dismiss a connection between cell phones and cancer. Scientists tracked nearly 13,000 adults for a decade and found a slightly higher rate of one of four cancers—gliomas, a particularly aggressive variety of brain cancer—among frequent cell users. But cell users overall had a lower rate of the cancers than never-users. Participants gave their own estimates of how much time they spent talking, which may have muddied the results. Researchers have now embarked on an even larger study in Europe.

[No Increase in Brain Tumors Seen From Cell Phones]

 

Antiperspirant and Deodorant

The link: A decade ago, an E-mail warning women that using antiperspirant could cause breast cancer went viral. Since then, some research has suggested that aluminum in antiperspirants and preservatives called parabens in both antiperspirants and deodorants mimic the hormone estrogen, which in high amounts can increase a woman's breast cancer risk.

 

The reality: There is no evidence that antiperspirants or deodorants cause cancer. Although a 2004 study heightened concern when researchers found parabens in breast cancer tissue samples, suggesting the chemicals may have caused the tumors, the investigators did not check for the presence of parabens in healthy tissue. Evidence suggests that 99 percent of us are exposed to parabens from numerous sources, including various cosmetics and foods, according to the American Cancer Society. Little evidence indicates they may be harmful. The organization says more study is needed to be certain that there is no risk. A 2002 study of hundreds of women with and without breast cancer, found no sign the antiperspirants or deodorants upped cancer risk.

[How to Limit Your Exposure to Phthalates]

 

Bras

The link: Women got a shock in 1995 when "Dressed to Kill," written by a husband and wife team of medical anthropologists, alleged that those who regularly wore bras had a much higher risk of cancer than women who didn't wear them. They theorized that bras promote the buildup of cancer-causing toxins in the breast.

 

The reality: Experts stress that a link between bras and breast cancer has never been proven. Considerable evidence points to other variables affecting a woman's risk of breast cancer, such as weight, age, and family history. Women who don't wear bras tend to weigh less or have less dense breast tissue, both of which reduce breast cancer risk. Those factors alone, according to the American Cancer Society, "would probably contribute to any perceived difference in risk."

[Breast Cancer Warning Signs]

 

 Hair Dye

The link: In 2008 researchers from the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) revived concern of a hair dye-cancer connection after finding a pattern of bladder cancer in male hairdressers and barbers. They found too little evidence to say whether people who used the products every so often at home were also at risk.


The reality: The IARC finding was based on studies conducted at different times, so any increased risk could result from heavy exposure to chemicals that were discontinued decades ago after scientists discovered they caused cancer in rodents. It's unclear whether the chemicals used in current dyes cause cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. Most evidence, however, does not support a link.

9 Shocking Diabetes Indicators

Posted: October 19, 2010

By Katherine Steinberg, AOL Health

More than 23 million people are living with diabetes in the United States, with 24 percent of cases going undiagnosed, according the American Diabetes Association. You may be at risk or already suffering complications and not even know it. Take a look at some surprising diabetes indicators.

 

Breast Size

If you're a size D or larger at age 20, you may be up to five times more likely to develop diabetes than your flat-chested friends, according to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. This finding is surprising because it indicates that breast size is a significant factor independent of body mass index (BMI). However powerful these findings are, more studies and research remains to be done to be entirely conclusive.

 

Eyebrow Color

Have your brows stayed dark while the rest of your hair has turned gray? You may want to get a fasting-glucose test from your doctor. A German study of 100 men between the ages of 50 and 70 with graying hair found that 76 percent of the men with dark brows had diabetes, compared to 18 percent of the gray-browed men. The theory is that diabetes may inhibit the graying process in eyebrow hair.

 

Birth Month

New research suggests that the month in which you are born could play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes, reports the American Diabetes Association. More than 10,000 children were studied by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Diabetes Translation. The results showed that spring babies were more likely than fall babies to develop type 1 diabetes in the U.S. This trend was strongest in the northern parts of the United States. The reasoning behind this is currently unknown, but may be due to mother's diet or exposure to solar radiation.

 

Hearing Loss

Previously overlooked, hearing loss has now been linked to diabetes as a complication. Hearing loss was about twice as prevalent in people with diabetes as their healthy counterparts; found a study by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, reports MedPage Today. "Complications of diabetes are very widespread and this is yet another one,” says Dr. Judith Fradkin Director, Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology, & Metabolic Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. The trouble is that the population at risk for diabetes is now further at risk for hearing loss.

 

Short Legs

Bad news for some shorties out there, researchers at Johns Hopkins University conducted a study of 3,600 men and found that men with shorter legs were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than their long-legged buddies, reports CBS News. It's not actually height that impacts diabetes risk, but the leg-to-height ratio. This finding hints at something more in terms of diabetes risk and fetal development.

 

Slow-Healing Cuts

If you find that your cuts are sticking around longer it may be a symptom of type 2 diabetes. Diabetics may suffer from a condition called atherosclerosis, which is the thickening of vessel walls and the subsequent thinning of blood vessels. With thicker walls and thinner cells, the blood stream has more trouble carrying white blood cells, the infection fighters, to the site of the cut, thus delaying your healing time.

 

Tooth Loss

If you have periodontal disease or tooth loss you are at increased risk for diabetes, according to the Harvard Schools of Public Health and Dental Medicine, reports MedPage Today. They concluded from their studies that tooth loss raised the risk of diabetes for both sexes by 14 to 29 percent. Periodontal disease is thought to be a complication of diabetes, but perhaps it's actually a two-way street.

 

Hair Loss

Something else diabetics with atherosclerosis may notice is a loss of hair or thinning hair. When there is a thickening of blood vessel walls the blood vessels narrow. This can occur in blood vessels all over your body, including your skin. Narrow blood vessels mean less oxygen, which causes symptoms like hair loss as well as shiny skin and thickened skin. Hair loss is not limited to any one specific area of the body. With circulatory impairment in your legs, you could often see hair loss on your legs say experts.

 

Pesticide Exposure

If you're a farmer, you may be raising your risk for diabetes, considering that long-term exposure to pesticides and herbicides have been found to increase diabetes risk, according to an Agricultural Health Study of Iowa farmers published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. However, the amount of pesticides the population is regularly exposed to are low, and not as powerful an indicator as obesity and family history.

Smoking, Obesity Slowing U.S. Life Expectancy, Report Finds

 

Although U.S. spends most on health care,

life expectancy is shorter than in most other rich countries

 

Posted: January 25, 2011

By Steven Reinberg

HealthDay Reporter

 

TUESDAY, Jan. 25 (HealthDay News) -- Longevity isn't increasing as fast in the United States as it is in other developed countries, says a new report that points a finger at high rates of smoking and obesity.

For 25 years, U.S. life expectancy at age 50 has increased, but more slowly than in most of the other 21 countries studied, including Japan and Australia, notes the report from the National Research Council, an arm of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.

 

Since the United States spends more on health care than any other country, this slowed pace is striking, said report co-author Samuel H. Preston, a professor of demography at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The results are "surprising in terms of our self-concept," he added.

 

"We determined the most likely source of our shortfall is cigarette smoking, particularly the heavy amount of smoking done by American women," he said.

 

"Obesity also appears to be important, but we are less certain of its role," he added. "We are the heaviest country in the Western world."

 

For U.S. women, life expectancy at age 50 is 33.1 years, while it's 35.5 on average for women in Japan, Australia, Sweden and Switzerland, Preston said. "And we are a couple of years behind France, Italy and Spain. Men are not as far behind, maybe 1 to 1.5 years behind the leaders," he added.

 

Fifty years ago more Americans smoked than Europeans and Japanese, and this difference still affects life expectancy today. A similar effect from smoking is seen in shortened lifespans in Denmark and the Netherlands, according to the report.

 

The effects of smoking on mortality rates take up to 30 years to be seen, so life expectancy for U.S. men will probably improve in coming decades because fewer men have been smoking over the last 20 years, the report says.

 

Among women, whose smoking habits peaked later than men's, lifespan increases will likely be slow during the next decade.

 

Although the exact contribution of obesity to shortened lifespan isn't known, it might be responsible for one-fifth to one-third of the life expectancy gap between the United States and other countries, the report says.

 

Moreover, the obesity epidemic could make the years gained by reduced smoking moot, according to the report. However, recent data find the obesity epidemic leveling off and the risk of death associated with obesity may be in decline, the authors say.

 

"It's clear that our behavioral patterns are not what would lead to optimal health," Preston said. "That's partly a reflection of personal decisions. It's perhaps a reflection that we are not doing a good job in preventive medicine," he said.

 

While lack of access to health care also affects lifespan, this is less of a factor because those over 65 have access to Medicare, the report notes.

 

Among aging Americans, cancer and cardiovascular disease remain the main causes of death, and diagnosis and survival rates from these diseases appear to be better in the United States than in most other industrialized countries, the report says.

 

Hormone replacement therapy did not appear to influence women's longevity, nor did social ties seem to have a bearing on life expectancy, the authors say.

 

However, the committee suggested that gaps in research make it difficult to draw hard and fast conclusions about how factors such as diet, physical inactivity and social integration affect longevity.

 

Dr. David L. Katz, director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine, said he believes the shortfalls revealed in the report are indicative of a problem much deeper than personal behaviors such as overeating and smoking.

 

"While we are an affluent country, we tolerate and even propagate enormous economic disparities. A large volume of research suggests that disparities in wealth predictably create disparities in health," he said.

 

What we call a health care system is predominantly a disease care system, focused on the treatment of disease after it develops, Katz said.

 

"Health is more about what happens in communities and homes, schools and supermarkets, restaurants and churches, than emergency rooms and cardiac care units," he said.

 

Only when we confront the widening divide between haves and have-nots in the U.S., and invest in health promotion programming in the places people work and learn and play will this kind of comparison to our peers prove less embarrassing," Katz said.

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.

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:

 

SACRIFICE

IS

THE DIVINE AND HOLY ACT

THAT EXALTS AND MAGNIFIES

THE ONE CREATOR GOD

ALSO

THE CREATOR DESIRES SACRIFICE

FOR WORSHIP OF HIM!

 

“He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.”

Exodus 22:20

 

“…Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them,

nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:”

II Kings 17:35

 

“Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil,

or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest,

nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:

But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God

in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter,

and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates:

and thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God in all that thou puttest thine hands unto.”

Deuteronomy 12:17,18

 

And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish,

thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God.”

Deuteronomy 15:21

 

January 20, 2011

 

 

Today, people still do sacrifice, even all over the world but not according to the ways that delight the CREATOR GOD.

 

The peoples and nations who still sacrifice today, do so by way of their own design and invented religions, not having any connection to the CREATOR GOD, but rather to images and idols made by the hands of man.

 

Nevertheless, there is a True and Living GOD, the ONE GOD that Created the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein, and HE takes pleasure in worship of ONLY HIM by SACRIFICE, for we do know that HE is a “JEALOUS GOD”.

 

“With whom the LORD had made a covenant, and charged them, saying, Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:”   II Kings 17:35

 

To name a few: Abel, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, GOD’s Chosen Priests of the Tribe of Levi, and Elijah all sacrificed to the Most High CREATOR GOD of Hosts.

 

Abel:

“And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:”   Genesis 4:4

 

Noah:

“And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.”   Genesis 8:20

 

Abraham:

“And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.”   Genesis 22:13

 

Jacob:

“Then Jacob offered sacrifice upon the mount, and called his brethren to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount.”   Genesis 31:54

 

“And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon. And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el.”   Genesis 35:14,15

 

The CREATOR’s Ministers, the Priests, that HE Chose of the seed of Levi:

 

“An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.”   Exodus 20:24 – 26

 

“And Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD for an offering of the children of Israel, that they may execute the service of the LORD.”   Numbers 8:11

 

“And 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, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.”   Exodus 28:1

 

“And 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, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.”   Exodus 30:3

 

“And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces. And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire: And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.”   Leviticus 1:1 – 10

 

“This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office; Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations.”   Leviticus 7:35,36

 

“And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering.”   Ezekiel 43:19

 

“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: They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.”   Ezekiel 44:15,16

 

Elijah:

“And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under. And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded. And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.”   I Kings 18:25 – 39

 

That is not the last we will see of GOD’s Servant and Prophet Elijah!

 

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:”   Malachi 4:5

 

The people who know nothing about the CREATOR’s Holy Act of SACRIFICE, and why HE chooses it for worship of HIMSELF, think it cruel and inhumane.  And I am sure members of Animal Rights Groups would have a field day demonstrating against HIM and HIS Ways of worship.  There are many things about the GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Way of Life that HE established for the Children of Israel that Gentiles might find unusual and unacceptable.  But the Truth of the matter is that no one can fight the CREATOR GOD and expect to win.  HE will have HIS Way and will condemn those who stand in HIS Way and who are disobedient and are against HIS revolution that is now in progress.

 

These people will speak against the CREATOR GOD but will uphold institutions that keep human beings oppressed and impoverished.  They will also support a democracy that perpetuates corruption – a fact of the United States, which is exposed time and time again.  They should realize that man’s ways have always led to greed, depravity, deception, injustice, and death.  Ruling powers allow all manner of religions to prevail under their law of “freedom of religion”, be it worship of the CREATOR GOD or worship of images, animals, or a man-god.   The rule is “anything goes”, but not support for the ONLY Divine RULE of the CREATOR GOD.  Nevertheless, people will criticize GOD’s WORD and the worship of HIMSELF that HE has Commanded.  HIS opponents should not forget that HE is the GOD that Created the Heavens and the Earth, the animals, and that Created THEM, as well.  Man has become too big for his britches, and by his country being the ruling power in the world, it in no way deters the CREATOR!  If SACRIFICE is what the CREATOR GOD chooses for worship of HIMSELF, then who is mere man or woman to object and/or demonstrate against it?!

 

Sadly, people do not know or understand GOD’s WORD or HIS Ways of Righteousness written in the Hebrew Scriptures, specifically that which is written for the peoples HE Created that inhabit HIS Earth.  The Truth of the matter is that the CREATOR can Command and Demand SACRIFICE if this is HIS choice.  After all it was HE that Created the clean (kosher) animals HE chose for SACRIFICE to HIM.

 

“And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.”   Exodus 8:22

 

“For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

 

And 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 9:14,16

 

“And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD'S.”   Exodus 9:29

 

“An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.”   Exodus 20:24

 

SACRIFICE to the CREATOR GOD and worship of ONLY HIM according to the Ways of Righteousness that HE has Commanded are all HE has ever wanted of mankind.

 

Although many Righteous people sacrificed to the CREATOR GOD, HE established and Commanded Laws for Sacrifice for HIS Chosen/Covenant People, the Children of Israel, to follow.  This we know because of what’s written in the Book of Exodus.

 

“…The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.”   Exodus 3:18

 

“And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you. And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God. Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither.”   Exodus 10:24 – 26

 

And these Commandments are still relevant upon the return of the Children of Israel from exile.

 

Whether Israelites will resume SACRIFICE in the Second Wilderness is questionable.  Elijah might be needed again with his “test” to strike Fear in our hearts in order that we will accept GOD’s LAWS and follow them in Truth and in Righteousness, as they are written in HIS Book of the Law.

 

Yes, SACRIFICE for me also is something I have to get accustomed to, as this is worship that has been far removed from Israelites today.  However, I am more than willing to please My GOD of Israel with SACRIFICE, since this is what HE has Commanded.  Back in 1999 hen I was shopping at the market in Egypt, I walked passed a calf lying on the floor that had just be slaughtered.  I was so disturbed that I could not finish my shopping.  I told myself that this is our culture, and that I had better learn it and get used to it.  And out of Fear of My CREATOR GOD of Israel, I will get used to it for HIS Sake because I want HIM to know that I have made HIM My GOD forever and will Exalt ONLY HIM with SACRIFICE at the appointed time.

 

Unfortunately, the Hebrew Culture could not be more far removed from this Gentile System and World Order.  Nothing – absolutely NOTHING of this Gentile system is done according to the CREATOR GOD’s Holy Way of Life.  And this is what the CREATOR GOD is about now – CHANGE – change that will call attention to HIM and make people seek HIM and HIS Ways of Righteousness and eventually seek SACRIFICE unto HIM to make HIM know that they want to worship HIM in Truth.

 

Returning to GOD’s Ways of SACRIFICE and worship may seem weird and bazaar and even the wrong things to do.  But we, being Israelites cannot judge and second guess what Our CREATOR GOD has Commanded of Israelites, for we are HIS Covenant People formed to show forth HIS PRAISE and revere HIM and FEAR HIM to comply in earnest and with our whole heart and soul all for HIS GLORY and at time with SACRIFICE when that time comes!  From the days of Abraham, our forefather, there have been SACRIFICES to the CREATOR GOD, and according to the WORDS of HIS Prophets, the Israelites so Blessed to return will again SACRIFICE to this Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and will be ever so glad to please HIM.

 

When we SACRIFICE unto the CREATOR GOD of this Universe, we are telling HIM:

 

YOU Created the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein.

 

YOU Created RIGHTEOUSNESS.

 

YOU are the ONE and ONLY GOD, and there is none else.

 

YOU have the POWER to kill and make alive.

 

YOU raise up Nations and bring them down.

 

YOU heal and make alive.

 

YOU deserve that mankind observe your Ways of Righteousness.

 

YOU provide true Peace and Happiness.

 

YOU ALONE are to be served and worshipped

 

ONLY YOU will Israelites worship and delight in with all our heart, soul, and might.

 

Israelites cannot worship the CREATOR GOD of Israel without SACRIFICE, as this is what is Commanded of them.

 

SACRIFICE of clean beasts (oxen, sheep, and goats) is used not only for daily worship of the CREATOR GOD of Israel but is also for anointing and purification according to HIS Commandments:

 

“Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy. Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually. The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even:”   Exodus 29:37 - 39

 

“And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.  Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about. And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.”   Exodus 29:19 - 21

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke: And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may bring her forth without the camp, and one shall slay her before his face: And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and sprinkle of her blood directly before the tabernacle of the congregation seven times: And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:”

 

“And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of separation: it is a purification for sin.”     Numbers 19:1 – 5,9

 

Make no mistakes the CREATOR GOD has made HIS WORD to be heard, and also do know that HIS Ways of making HIMSELF known, have been like none other person or god.

 

“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; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.”   Deuteronomy 4:33 - 40

 

So much the CREATOR loves HIS People, the Children of Israel, that HE called Abram out of Ur, saved his SEED out of Egyptian bondage, Commanded that HIS Altar for SACRIFICE be built of twelve unhewed stones that represent the Twelve Tribes of Israel, ordered that HIS Levitical Priests bear the names of the Children of Jacob when they minister before HIM, and gave HIS beloved Covenant People the Land of Israel and ordered that it be bordered according to the names of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.  That is how much the CREATOR GOD loves HIS People, therefore, shouldn’t HIS People worship HIM with SACRIFICE, if that is HIS desire?

 

AT PRESENT WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE

FOR SACRIFICE OF OBEDIENCE!

 

Where is our love for this CREATOR GOD that chose us, that doted on our forefathers, and that gave them their hearts’ desires and then some?  How do we demonstrate our love for Our GOD of Israel?  How can we cause HIM to forget Israel’s sins and worship of false gods causing much anger and jealousy in HIS heart?  Heartless prayers and promises are not the answer.  But the CREATOR GOD of Israel does delight in SACRIFICES, and also sacrifices of OBEDIENCE, which is what’s now at hand for us to do rather than animal SACRIFICE, for the Priests are not in place in Jerusalem for this holy manner of worship.  However, we can worship in other ways, and OBEDIENCE tops the list:

 

“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”   I Samuel 15:22

 

For the moment, we cannot sacrifice oxen, sheep, and goats, and the reason is that GOD’s Ministers are not in place.  However, for the time being, we can certainly offer the sacrifices of Righteousness.

 

“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 4:5

 

We can do this!!!

 

Then, when the CREATOR GOD, the Holy ONE of Israel, causes the seed of Aaron to return to HIS Holy Temple, the children of Zadok will SACRIFICE to the GLORY and PRAISE of the Most High CREATOR GOD of Israel AGAIN and in Truth and in Righteousness, and they will be overwhelmed with heartening love and devotion for the GOD of our forefathers, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

 

Let the Most High CREATOR GOD of Hosts hasten its time.

 

“…thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer,

the mighty One of Jacob.

For brass I will bring gold,

and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron:

I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders;

but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

The sun shall be no more thy light by day;

neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee:

but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself:

for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever,

the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation:

I the LORD will hasten it in his time.”

Isaiah 60:16 - 22

 

 “O taste and see that the LORD is good:

blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

Psalm 34:8

 

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

"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."

 

*****

A PRAYER EXTENDED OUT OF KING SOLOMON’S PRAYER FOR ISRAELITES WHO LIVE TODAY AND ARE CAPTIVES IN GENTILE LANDS:

 

Dear Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, GOD and KING of this Universe, and CREATOR of ALL things,

 

We need your help – a spark to generate greater interest in YOU, your LAW, and a desire to return.  YOU cannot imagine the Messianics that are on the Internet.

 

I’m sure you look down at your People and wonder what’s wrong with them that they just can’t worship YOU and come together under your LAW, especially after all that has happened to us.  I wonder, also, Father.  We know your Truth and how YOU are so willing to give us your HELP, yet we still don’t care to be a League and ONE People with YOU in harmony.  Why, Father?  Is it your HAND that is keeping us apart?  And are you again separating and calling for Israelites to “Come on the LORD’s Side”, as YOU did in the Wilderness?  If so, Father, make your intentions known, so that those of us who really and truly FEAR YOU will stop playing games and get serious under the umbrella of your LAW in Righteousness.  It is too late for us to not be without a PLAN that will bring us closer to YOU.  Guide us, Father, and show us your HAND.  As you know, from our wicked past, that always worked – not for long, but even for just a short while, it might be helpful.  Help us, Father, and make us ONE Stick in your HAND!

 

***

 

This world of Peoples and Nations have been deceived, and yes it is greatly because of the sins, transgressions, and disobedience of your Chosen People, the Children of Israel.  YOU established our fathers with love in the Land YOU promised them.  YOU kept your every WORD.  The Children of Israel got the Land of Canaan and possessed it, and YOU even gave them a king, when in fact, YOU were (and still are) their KING.  With your Mighty HAND YOU kept them safe from their enemies but, at the same time, punished them at the hands of their enemies when they were disobedient to your Book of the Law and when they corrupted themselves with worship of false gods.  But because YOU are a Merciful GOD for not utterly destroying us in the Wilderness and for not keeping us in utter darkness in this GREAT CAPTIVITY throughout the world, YOU have clearly forgiven us AGAIN, and have heard our cries, just as you forgave and considered the prayers of our forefathers. 

 

Now, it has been well over 2,000 years since YOU scattered the Israelites and since YOU left to return to your Place and leave us in the hands of our enemies. 

 

Thus, Father, YOU know how the heathens have been heartlessly ruling over us and keeping us repressed and without any power and without self-determination.  Your Covenant People, the Children of Israel, are NOT SAVED – not the People and not the Land, which Europeans have usurped as their own and control with much cruelty and not at all according to your Book of the Law. 

 

Father, in the past, you have removed all peoples from your Land who have refused to live according to your Ways of Righteousness, so why then do you allow these Europeans to stay in your Land?   Neither do they Fear YOU to promote your Laws, Statutes and Judgments, but rather they boast of their own laws that they call “Judaism”.  And they even block your People who have returned to you from the Land that YOU gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  We are Witnesses and the Canaanites are Witnesses, as well that heathenish people and their heathenish ways will have no place in your Holy Land.  When, Father will YOU take action against those who falsely claim your Land?

 

Israelites have returned to YOU, Father, not all, because YOU did say that only a Remnant will return.  However, some of us fall asleep calling upon your Holy Name and praying daily and nightly for your compassion that YOU show your Mighty HAND for us, just as YOU did for our forefathers down in Egypt.  If for but ten Israelites who seek YOU in Truth, Father of Abraham, return to us, help us, and let us live to show forth your PRAISE and spread your Righteous LAW.  Return to us, Father, because we have returned to YOU.  We are the “Dry Bones” YOU have awakened to life – your LAWS of Truth and Righteousness.

 

Hear us, Father,

 

The world mourns, and it is not at rest.  Everything evil and everything wicked are destroying your planet Earth:  sickness, war, violence, deaths and murder, a plethora of man-made religions, corruption, and all manner of wickedness rule.  Father, we live in days 100 times worse than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, and that speaks volumes, for YOU know all that takes place in the open and done in secret.  Iniquity rules, Father, because the Peoples and Nations of today do not know YOU to FEAR YOU – not even your Covenant People, the SEED of Jacob, for as YOU know too many Israelites yet worship other gods, even the gods of the heathen. 

 

YOU said that because of the sins of the Children of Israel that YOU would cause them to worship all the false gods they desire.  YOU told Israel to see if the gods they worship would help and save them.  Well, these gods have neither helped nor saved your People and no one else, either.  Israelites are not saved, and there is Hell on your Earth.  None of the hundreds of religions and their gods have been helpful or have done anything to change the evil and wickedness that prevails throughout the world.  Only YOU, Father of Abraham, can change the sin and blasphemous acts that exist in the hearts of today’s peoples.  Only YOU, Father, can establish your Truth and your Righteousness in place of what now destroys and deceives the world of peoples who have no knowledge of YOU – the ONE True and Living GOD.

 

Hear ME, My GOD and My SAVIOR of Israel; hear me for we are in great distress.

 

How will people know to seek YOU, Father, if YOU do not remove the veil from off hidden Truths?  How can people find YOU, if YOU keep your Ways of Righteousness hidden, and YOU allow false worship to rule instead of your Truth?  How can people’s eyes be opened, if YOU do not cause them to realize that their ways are really the ways of chaos and assured death?  How can people be saved, if evil, powerful rulers perpetuate their world orders that sustain confusion, division, isolation, turmoil, and mayhem, even with involvement of their religions?  How can Israel be saved, if YOU do not once again show your POWER and your Right HAND to Deliver YOUR People out of captivity and out of the lands of the enemy?  How will your Covenant People learn that the images and crosses around their necks are the works of men who wrote the “New Testament” specifically because they were against your LAWS and against your Righteous Judgments?  How will they know if YOU will not come forth to show them that what they believe is not of your making?  Because of Israel’s evils and wickedness, your world suffers, Father, and now, once again ONLY your POWERS, your SIGNS, and your WONDERS will cause Israelites and all mankind to FEAR YOU in order that you will be able to change this madness into your Ways of Righteousness.

 

Therefore, RETURN, Father, Most High GOD of this Universe, RETURN to your PLACE and re-establish your Covenant People for your Great Name’s Sake, and for your PRAISE and GLORY, make haste.  Reveal to the world that YOU ALONE are the ONE true and Living GOD, and that there is none else, for indeed, YOU speak of none other for YOU have said that YOU are a “JEALOUS GOD”.

 

Make haste, Father, and remember your PROMISES to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to cause their SEED to inherit the Land of Canaan.  And take us into the Wilderness, as YOU have said at the mouth of your Prophets, in order that we learn your LAWS and that YOU put them in our hearts so that we NEVER TURN FROM YOU, EVER AGAIN!

 

Make haste, Father, so that you will once again live in the midst of your People, the Children of Israel.

 

Hear my prayer, O GOD of Israel, for it is in YOU that I trust with all my whole heart and soul. 

 

As YOU said, “Come now, and let us reason together…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”  The Remnant awaits YOU, Heavenly GOD of Israel.

 

Be with us, Father, in the coming months, for some of us are preparing a PLAN to go in the midst of the rulers of this world to seek our FREEDOM out of this captivity.  It is our prayer that YOU will be with us, LORD GOD of Jacob, just as YOU were with our forebears when YOU made yourself known to the Egyptians, so that they would let Israel go out of that House of Bondage. 

 

Show us and the world, Heavenly Father, that your Heart is turned toward your People, Israel, AGAIN and that YOU will again cause our captors to know that our lives and theirs, as well are in your HANDS and that YOU still live for your Covenant People, the SEED of the Biblical Israelites to save us out of their captivity.

 

Show your People, Israel, that YOU are indeed in accord with this Plan, and that YOU will surely save us out of this captivity and AGAIN make a GREAT and AWESOME NAME for yourself, so that all mankind will know to FEAR YOU AND KEEP YOUR WAYS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

 

For a long time, Father, YOU have been an unknown and without PRAISE and GLORY, but now, that can all be changed.  Now, GOD of Abraham, be EXALTED and be MAGNIFIED, and soon, after we come out of the Wilderness, let the Nation of Israel get the attention of the world with trumpets as we boast of your GREATNESS and your Ways of RIGHTEOUSNESS from your Holy City Jerusalem.

 

Let it happen, O Shepherd of Israel, let it happen for your Holy Name’s Sake.  If not, then, Father, what will YOU do unto your great name?

 

“…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.”

 

Yes, Father, your Holy Name is ours, too, for we are named by YOU.  Save us, O GOD of our SALVATION, and show the world once again that the GOD of Israel yet lives and is taking back HIS Universe, HIS Land, and HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and that YOU will be Exalted above all gods upon this Earth.

 

Make haste, Father of Abraham, and let it happen – make it happen now for your Holy Name’s Sake and for your Righteousness’ Sake!

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:

 

THOSE WHO FEAR TO FLEE

 

I know that there were many Israelites who did not want to leave out of Egyptian bondage and even chose for themselves a captain to lead them back to Egypt.  I also know that today there are Israelites who do not want to leave this captivity, as well.  Whether they are afraid, are waiting on GOD to come down, or they just like this way of death and misery - just like the Slaves who chose to remain in Slavery, they have to consider the consequences of not leaving out of Babylon. 

 

If it is fear of the unknown that makes them resist leaving the lands of our captivity, then they are experiencing the same fears of our forefathers.  And I can understand that, but I cannot understand how these same Israelites can boast of the GOD of Israel and speak of trust in HIM, but do not have any desire to return to fulfill prophecy that will, at the end of the day, cause the world to know and worship the Most High CREATOR GOD of Israel.  Now, that, I cannot understand. 

 

Given GOD’s WORD, we are in HIS favor if we are obedient to HIM.  HE has opened our eyes and shown us HIS Truth, and that is reason enough for us to know that it is time for us to do all that we can to secure our Exodus out of this Gentile land.  If Our GOD of Israel is with us, then no one can be against us.  We must leave out of this captivity in order that Our GOD will transform our hearts and souls into the Righteous and Holy People required for serving and worshipping HIM, which HE has been wanting since HE established a Chosen People and called Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees. 

 

We have to want this new and wonderful life, otherwise we are not the ones the GOD of Israel will choose to show forth HIS PRAISE and change this present wicked world system into a world of peoples who will be happy to choose GOD’s World Order if it will end the ever present wars, sorrow, sickness, and unhappiness that engulfs their lives.  Those of us who are sure of going into the Wilderness must be steadfast and strong with absolute TRUST in the GOD of Israel that HE will lead us, just as HE led our forefathers in the Wilderness of Sinai.  It is absolutely crucial that we have Our GOD with us if we will be ONE with HIM!

 

Let’s remember what happened with the twelve men who spent forty days spying out the Land of Canaan.  They came back with wonderful news about the “Land of Milk and Honey”, but they also came back with a negative report.  And because they raised an unnecessary alarm among the Children of Israel, the entire Nation of Israel had to wander forty years - a year for each of the forty days - in the Wilderness.  Moral of this chapter in the Hebrew Scriptures is to Fear the GOD of Israel - not man.

 

We must realize that the peoples of this world are looking for answers.  Many thirst to understand why this globe is in so much trouble.  They want to understand the true Ways of GOD and find relief from the perils of this horrific oppression and persecution.  They are tired of this lifestyle that leads to nothing worthwhile for anyone – not the poor and not the rich, either.  This world has been reeling and swaying and with every movement wickedness is destroying billions who never knew about the CREATOR GOD that made them.  This madness must come to an end

 

It is given unto us, Israelites, to cause the world to know the whole TRUTH, and it won’t be done in captivity.

 

“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.

 

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.”   Isaiah 54:5,10

 

“And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children. In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

 

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 54:13 – 15,17 

 

Thus, there is but ONE THING TO FEAR, and that is the CREATOR GOD of Israel.  HE has lovingly and Mercifully warned us to “Flee” Babylon.  If we don’t, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.  This is just another instance by which the Holy ONE of Israel will prove the Children of Israel again to see if they will heed HIS Warning or no.

 

Find out what EXODUS TWO is all about and participate in prayers to Our GOD of Israel for our SALVATAION and in our Plan for our FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, and REPARATIONS.   And let us be strengthened in the GOD of Israel and in HIS Righteous LAW, for therein is our SALVATION.

 

A SNEEZE vs. ALL SHOOK UP

 

In economics it is said that when the U.S. sneezes, the world catches a cold.  Not of any correlation, but when a Third-World country, like Egypt, that receives billions of dollars from the U.S. becomes embroiled in chaos and serious uprisings that can topple its leader, the U.S. and USIsraelis get all shook up. 

 

While their eyes are on the impoverished peoples of Egypt (who live on less than $2 a day) who are desperately seeking to better their lives, the U.S. and the USIsraelis should be concerned about their own peoples who are deep in destitution and squalor, as well.

 

To believe that the powers-that-be will forever exploit and control Third-world countries is to believe a lie.  The CREATOR GOD of this Universe has a Number ONE concern for Righteousness and for the poor, the fatherless, and the widow, and HE, without a doubt, will take care of those who seek HIS Ways and who cry out unto HIM because of being overwhelmed with poverty, oppression, and suffering!  And it would appear that neither Egypt, the U.S. nor the USIsraelis could give a damn for them.  Their concerns are self-centered and not selfless.

 

“Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless. If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.”   Exodus 22:22 - 25

 

“And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.”   Leviticus 19:9,10

 

“And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God.”   Leviticus 23:22

 

That’s why the CREATOR GOD is so WONDERFUL!  HE is fair and JUST and requires same in HIS Book of the Law – HIS Ways of Righteousness.  HE prepares for the poor and listens for their cry. 

 

Should countries like Egypt, the U.S. and USIsraelis be concerned?  Well, if they harbor the poor and do as little as possible for them and nothing at all, then, yes, they are guilty as sin! 

 

The United Nations is not making 2011, the International Year for People of African Descent for naught!

Mubarak Steps Down and Upsets the Israelis

 

President Mubarak has resigned his post.  And the Israelis are upset with President Obama, so says the news.  President Obama can’t do anything right.  He gives these people everything they want and then some, and they still are not happy. 

 

The Israelis are afraid that a democracy in Egypt will vote in terrorists.   Now all of a sudden, “democracy” is the bad guy because the people in the Middle East have to vote for leaders the Israelis approve of and ones they can exploit and control.  GOD’s HAND is really working against the Israelis, and there is nothing they can do about it.  When they took control of GOD’s Land, they did not realize what plagues they were bringing upon themselves.  They picked the wrong Land to make a “European Jewish State”.

 

 

JORDAN

 

In Jordan there have also been demonstrations for the same reasons that people are unhappy in Egypt but not at all on the order of what has taken place there.  I have not seen the demonstrations but know they have taken places because of what’s on the news.  Nevertheless, I understand from the news reports that government officials have been sacked and that there are promises to lower some food prices and the cost for propane tanks that are used here for cooking and for heating dwelling places. 

 

I like King Abdullah, as I see him doing more for the poor than what is done for the impoverished in the US.

MARK?

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 loving kindness 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!

 

IT IS GOD’s TURN NOW!

WATCH

CALLS ATTENTION TO HIMSELF,

AND

CAUSES ALL TO KNOW HIM AND HIS TRUTH!

 

THE CREATOR GOD WILL BE EXALTED AND

When a child, I said I would kill whoever killed GOD.

Now, an adult, I know that no one can kill the True and Living CREATOR GOD

but rather must serve, worship, and magnify ONLY HIM or pay dire consequences, and

[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.)

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,

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

REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD IN REGARD TO

HIS SEVENTH DAY SABBATH COMMANDMENT!

 

REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS ANNIVERSARY DAY OF REST,

AND OUR DAY TO KEEP IN REST AND AS A SIGN BETWEEN

HIM AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;

and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:

because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”

Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth

you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place,

let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”

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.

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!

 

MAY OUR SAVIOR GOD OF ISRAEL BLESS AND BE WITH ALL WHO SEEK HIM

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 all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:

and let such as love thy salvation say continually,

Let God be magnified.”

Psalm 70:4

 

“My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day…

“I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD:

I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

“Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things:

O God, who is like unto thee!”

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

Today the Land mourns

For lack of the CREATOR’s Presence,

HIS LAW

HIS Holy and Peculiar People.

Barren of Truth

Void of

Righteousness

Brimming with corruption

Lacking compassion for fatherless and widows.

 

The Heavens and

Earth HE Created

All made “Good” and without flaw.

But FREEWILL of mankind

Invented evil and wickedness

Changed GOD’s Ordinances

Polluted HIS Waters

Defiled HIS Planet

Made unhappy and miserable its Peoples.

 

IT IS WRITTEN

Unto the CREATOR GOD every knee will bow

Let it be, LET IT BE!

Let the CREATOR GOD

Take back HIS Universe

Bring an end to transgression,

The inventions of religious imaginations

Corruption and deception

End the greed

Cleanse the filth

Replenish the Earth.

 

Let the CREATOR GOD

Take back HIS Universe

Let HIM reveal HIMSELF

Let all Peoples FEAR the CREATOR GOD

Let HIM LIVE in the hearts of the SEED of Jacob

Let Peoples and Nations see GOD’s GOODNESS

Let them see HIS Ways of Righteousness

Let them experience HIS Peace and HIS Happiness.

 

Worship the CREATOR of the Heavens and the Earth

Sing unto HIM

WORSHIP HIM

Rejoice in HIS Holy Name

WORSHIP HIM

Visit HIS Holy Place

THAT MADE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH!

WORSHIP ONLY HIM AND LIVE!

CHANGE THE TIMES, HEAVENLY FATHER,

Let your Chosen and all mankind live for YOU Our CREATOR.

For all the evil you have to offer for the wicked

For all the GOOD you have to offer for the obedient

Let the world ONCE AGAIN see your HAND

And be in awe of your SIGNS and WONDERS

 

Let Righteousness prevail upon the Earth

For your Holy Name’s Sake

LET EVERY KNEE BOW TO YOU, MOST HIGH GOD OF HOSTS

Be these knees Israelites or that of the Stranger

LET EVERY KNEE BOW TO YOU!

Mubarak’s planning exile to Tel Aviv

 

According to sources in the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel is making preparations to welcome Hosni Mubarak into exile after  Saudi Arabia rejected overtures.

 

What the heck is going on in the Middle East all of a sudden? Are these multiple middle east uprisings in several nations more irrefutable signs of the EndTime of the Wicked? Seeing how arrogant and bloody Mr. Mubarak thinks he is, no wonder that he has now given his army orders to shoot to kill!

 

However, will the sudden long prophesized appearance of the mighty Madhi (who will set down all tyrants) and His Christ Messiah be next soon to follow instead of a blood bath which is nonchalantly proposed by the corrupt ruler such as Egyptian Depot Mubarak?

Mubarak gives army shoot-to-kill order

 

Jan 30, 2011: Embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has reportedly given his armed forces the authority to shoot-to-kill as anti-government protests gain momentum. Reports say the army has been ordered to shoot when it sees fit. Military helicopters and jet fighters fly over major locations as the numbers of protesters multiply there. Tens of thousands of people have practically taken over the Tahrir Square in the city center despite heavy military presence, a Press TV correspondent reported.

MY PERSPECTIVE AND REACTION

TO

THE UN 2011,

INTERNATIONAL YEAR FOR PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT

 

February 1, 2011

 

I ask that you bear with me, and the reason is that many of you do not espouse to my Spirituality.  Regardless, my heartfelt desires and concerns are for all people of color, and that we must speak in behalf of ALL Blacks who are persecuted, oppressed, and suffering in this present world system.  And because of my Spirituality, it is my conviction and staunch belief that true FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT elsewhere (for those who want it), and REPARATIONS will be acquired and manifest through the WORKS of the CREATOR GOD – the same GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage.  Just in case you never noticed, our predicaments are very much the same.  The difference is that there has not been a mandate stating, “Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river”.  Nevertheless, there are covert instructions to judge Black males and Black females even for the smallest crimes and order them to jail for life.  And let’s not even go into the racial profiling that can get Blacks shot to death or landed in jail on trumped up charges.  Yes, I am fighting for Blacks to be free of this racism and for REPARATIONS for Blacks all over the world for this heinous Slave Trade, which was a crime against Blacks that has us still suffering.  So, whether you agree with my Spirituality or not, we can come together for the betterment, self-determination, and empowerment of all Black peoples in order that our children will not have to endure this present world order that keeps us in darkness, in captivity, and under White control.  

 

***

 

Before writing my perspective to the United Nations’ Resolution concerning the 2011 International Year for People of African Descent, I read through many documents and E-mails related to our fight against racism and our battle for Reparations.  Although there are diverse ideals about how to attain Reparations, it is good that the great majority of us speak out and believe that we are justified in seeking it.  That which is of great import is that we are once again on the road to make this struggle come to fruition.  And this time, we cannot be slow to act, and we certainly cannot give up the fight. 

 

My platform and focus is that we be more aggressive in placing blame, which clearly falls on Colonial and U.S. governments for this cruel and barbaric Slave Trade in which 100 million Blacks died enroute to slave castles, while awaiting slave ships, during the Middle Passage and in the lands of the Slavers.  The United States is to be blamed also for the lynchings and thousands of injustices that followed unto this day without bringing the criminals to justice.  We must also focus on our FREEDOM and “release” from the grips of a system that has taken our forebears in chains and yokes out of Africa and completely ethnically cleansed us of our roots.  Next, we are within our human rights to have the government start RESETTLEMENT proceedings and REPARATIONS to meet the above objectives.  Whatever your concerns, keep the audacity to hope for FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, and REPARATIONS alive in these United States and in all countries and governments that stole Blacks out of Africa.

 

There is no question that savage racism is the makeup of the American Way and is a serious problem for Blacks and all people of color.  However, we have made racism the basis for Reparations without any success.  Hence, we have to consider an even greater approach and stratagem to meet our objectives.  We have to consider an even greater approach to not only resolve the issue of racism for Blacks who are proud to be Americans.  But for those of us who deplore the racism, injustice, corruption, and subjugation that permeate the US systems, and who want better lives elsewhere, we want lifestyles of excellence for our children and progeny.   And we must stand strong before the United Nations and insist upon self-determination - elsewhere - because it will never happen in the “Good Ol’ US of A”.  Thus, we must have our FREEDOM and RESETTLEMENT in stable and friendly countries of our choice that tolerate people of color.

 

We are well aware that the United States has become a country unfit for human habitation – not just because of the ill treatment of Blacks and other minorities but because the country’s waters and atmosphere are polluted beyond any means of remedy.  Thus, the country is diseased with race hatred and carcinogenic chemicals in the water and in the air that we breathe. 

 

I have long since admired my ambitious and goodhearted Black people who are always encouraging excellence in our undertakings.  However, we, as a group, have had little opportunity to accomplish our goals and our dreams, even though some of us are computer programmers, mathematicians, scientists, educators, engineers, doctors, and specialists in all fields.  Few Blacks are president and vice president of billion dollar corporations, and those employed in large corporations do not move up the ladder in positions that matter and salaries as do Whites.  And do not delude yourselves, no matter what the UN puts in writing, nothing is going to change in this country with a foundation built on a Holocaust, prejudice, segregation, and race hatred. 

 

Nevertheless, if we are in control of our own educational system, our governments, and our own social and economical systems, then we can make the necessary decisions for our own well-fare.  Let’s not forget Black Wallstreet.  That was an exceptional accomplishment Whites never intended to happen, and it has not occurred since they destroyed Wallstreet’s complete design and foundation.  Whites were appalled that Blacks could be so successful without their involvement, and they had to put and end to Wallstreet before it got so big that it was in competition with them.  To believe that another Black Wallstreet will happen again in the United States is to believe a lie.  The truth of the matter is that if there were no poor Blacks in the States and no Third-world countries existing in gross impoverishment, then there would be no White Supremacy. 

 

We have to rise above our plight and be inspired and encouraged to take our expertise elsewhere and establish the likes of our own Black Walstreet in countries that will be happy to receive it.  If Whites won’t invest in Blacks, then let Blacks invest in Blacks, and today we have Ghana, Nigeria, and other countries in South America and Africa with the finances willing to help in this regard, if we can prove our willingness to be successful and excel with the best of them.

 

We must go before the United Nations and seek our FREEDOM on the basis of the forced migration that brought our forebears to these shores and kept us here in this land of misery.  We must go before the United Nations and seek RESETTLEMENT opportunities because of this cruel displacement.  We must go before the United Nations for Reparations to finance our settlements/communities, housing, farms, school systems, and funding for our livelihoods and recreational centers, hospitals and clinics – much needed to give our people the required medical attention.  All these facilities are what will make our people self-supporting and viable citizens in societies that we will have established, as well as make us truly proud to be Black. 

 

The Slave Trade thrived because of the millions who were forcibly migrated to these shores (and to other countries), because of colonial America and the US government that perpetuated the control of many generations of Blacks in Slavery.  On these grounds also, it is our human right for justice to be served, and it is the duty of the United Nations to aid us in this cause and justice for the barbaric and cruel Slave Trade.  Human rights and FREEDOM for all is the basis and duty of the United Nations, and we at this point want justice served for all the atrocities committed against Slaves and against us. 

 

We must also be compassionate towards descendants of Slaves in other countries and speak in their favor, as well.  In this regard, we must cause the United Nations to understand the need for an International Foundation established for contributions from all countries that grew wealthy off the backs of Slaves in order that all descendants of Slaves might benefit from the untold criminal acts against Black humanity that has gone unresolved for far too long. 

 

It is imperative that any UN conferences involving the 2011 International Year for People of African Descent include “African American” representation equaling the same number of UN members addressing this issue.  This is what’s fair and justified on the basis of Colonial Americans insistence on “no taxation without representation” policy.

 

After reading the 2011, International Year for People of African Descent, I am not encouraged.  The idea and purpose are fine, but I read nothing written that will address our requests for FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, REPARATIONS, and an end to racism.

 

Excerpt from the Resolution adopted by the General Assembly:

 

Proclaims the year beginning on 1 January 2011 the International Year For People of African Descent, with a view to strengthening national actions and Regional and international cooperation for the benefit of people of African descent in Relation to their full enjoyment of economic, cultural, social, civil and political rights, their participation and integration in all political, economic, social and cultural aspects of society, and the promotion of a greater knowledge of and respect for their diverse heritage and culture:

 

Who compiled this report?  Are they people who are truly serious about 2011 being a productive year to address Black Agendas?  Everyone who is anyone in this country knows that the powers-that-be are well aware of the inequality, inequity, prejudice, and discrimination we face being people of color since the Slave Trade.  If this General Assembly is not aware, then without hesitation we can spend a two or three years before the United Nations taking turns citing passages in the annals of history involving all the heinous crimes of the Slave Masters and the double standards, isolation, and exclusion from the equal distribution of wealth and the job market, even since the end of Slavery in 1865!

 

Didn’t the person or Assembly Committee responsible for this Resolution know about Affirmative Action that did much of nothing to help our cause but that worked above and beyond for White Women?  Aren’t these people aware of the lily White Senate and AIPAC, another White but Jewish organization, that runs the House of Representatives and the Senate with bribes and that has concern only for White “Jews” and those whom they can exploit?  Isn’t this Assembly aware that these White “Jews” can successfully get their way and everything they want from this government and even have the chutzpah to object to rights that are due Blacks? And aren’t they aware of the KKK, the injustice in the judicial system, and the disproportionate number of Blacks incarcerated than Whites?  Didn’t this Assembly hear about President Bush pulling the US representatives out of the World Conference Against Racism?  Aren’t these people aware that this past December, the UN General Assembly voted and approved a resolution to hold a summit commemorating the Durban Conference Against Racism, and the US voted against this resolution?  There is but one way to fight the racism in this country, and that is to leave it!  There has been no American Dream for descendants of Slaves, no enjoyment or even hope of better lives, and participation in the economic benefits in this country have been nil.  And this “promotion of a greater knowledge of and respect for their diverse heritage and cultureis nothing more than a joke.  The school systems no longer are concerned with Multicultural Education, and when they were, it was mainly about the Jewish Holocaust ad nauseam, as if the Black Holocaust overshadowed their White Jewish thirteen years of pogrom.

 

If the General Assembly wanted to make descendants of Slaves believe that this Resolution is truly intended to make changes for the betterment of Blacks, then it should have implemented buzz words commonly used by Blacks who are fighting for our FREEDOM and fighting against RACISM and for JUSTICE SERVED for the SLAVE TRADE! 

 

The UN General Assembly should know by now that there is not much that will be done when the US government and other agencies are foremost in committing “racial discriminations”.

 

If no one can strengthen the office of the Presidency to be a voice for those who have none, how will anything positive ever be accomplished for Blacks in this place called “America the Beautiful”?  And I fail to understand what “Regional and International cooperation” entails and is in regard to our economic, cultural, social, civil and political rights, etc., etc. 

 

It appears to me that some folks at the UN attempted to write a Resolution that looked good on paper, but they failed miserably, as this document leaves much to be desired.  We must, at all costs, work in conjunction with ALL Committees and Conferences involving this 2011, International Year for People of African Descent, or our objectives will not be met.  Remember and take to heart, it is now time for us to have our voices heard loud and clear that descendants of Slaves are determined to have justice served for the Slave Trade and for the ensuing race hatred and savage injustice that has prevailed since forcing Blacks to this country.  We can no longer stand by and allow the White world governments to sweep the atrocities of the Slave Trade and racism under the rug, as if they never existed.  Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan held demonstrations that we must consider and be as equally as determined to stand strong and be steadfast as have been the peoples of these countries.  Let’s not forget that money talks and peaceful demonstrations walk, if we ever want change in our lives and in the lives of our children.  What have we got to lose?

 

White folks and even some Blacks do not think we deserve Reparations.  If these are the ones who wrote this Resolution, then the first steps for justice have not been served.  Nevertheless, I appeal to the United Nations to give us at least half the wealth the government and the Slavers amassed off the backs of our forefathers, for without their labor, this country would not be the power in the world that it is, dwindling though that power may be.

 

I cannot close without a warning.  Without question, when REPARATIONS are rendered, those who will choose to stay in the US should know that efforts will be made to extend this restitution to everyone but to descendants of Slaves.  Even President Obama, a man, husband, and father that I deeply admire, has said that REPARATIONS can be provided in the form of better educational systems.  Taxes for educational systems are already in place, but just not for the Black ghettoes wherein have lived poor, impoverished Blacks for lack of the necessary education, employment, and salaries to bring them out of this dilemma. 

 

In the words of Dr. Conrad W. Worrill, “We must regain the momentum which the Reparations Movement had in the first few years of this century.”  And he is absolutely correct!

THE UNITED NATIONS AND PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT

            We must regain the momentum which the Reparations Movement had in the first few years of this century. The United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa recognized the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery as a Crime Against Humanity for which Reparations are due!

 

            The U. N. has declared 2011, the “Year for People of African Descent.” There are different activities being planned. As Malcolm X taught us, we must use the international arena to highlight our National Human Rights’ Demand for Reparations! Let us review the work of the December 12th Movement and NBUF leading up to the World Conference Against Racism. 

 

In 1999, the National Black United Front ( NBUF ) joined forces with the December 12th Movement in organizing a delegation of Africans in America to attend the United Nations World Conference Against Racism. The conference was held in Durban, South Africa from August 31st to September 7 , 2001 . We should never forget the impact and significance of this organizing project..

 

            The December 12th Movement International Secretariat, the International Association Against Torture , North South XXI has official Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status with the United Nations. Over the last twenty years, this group has committed much of its organizing efforts to participating in the United Nations Human Rights Commission by presenting numerous issues that impact African people in America. They have been NBUF ’s eyes and ears at the U.N.

 

            As Atty. Roger Wareham of the December 12th Movement recently revealed in an article circulated on the internet, “Since 1997, when the U.N. agreed to hold this World Conference, the United States , Canada, and Western Europe (the WEO Group of countries) have done all they can to prevent it from succeeding.”

 

            In the spring of 1998 , at the African Group meeting during the Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, a Resolution was drafted identifying the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade as a Crime Against Humanity. The United States used all of its influence and blocked the resolution. However, this did not stop the momentum throughout the African World to pursue this resolution’s becoming an official position of the United Nations World Conference Against Racism.

 

            At the African Regional Preparatory Conference, for the World Conference Against Racism, held in Dakar, Senegal ( January 22-24, 2001 ), the African Ministers developed what has been called the “Dakar Declaration.”  In their deliberations, they affirmed, in part, the following:

 

-           Affirm that the slave trade is a unique tragedy in the history of humanity, particularly against Africans— a crime against humanity which is unparalleled, not only in its abhorrent barbaric feature, but also, in terms of its enormous magnitude, its institutionalized nature, its transnational dimension and especially its negation of the human nature of the victims.

 

-           Further affirm that the consequences of this tragedy accentuated by those of colonialism and apartheid, have resulted in substantial and lasting economic, political, and cultural damage caused to the descendants of the victims, the perpetuation of the prejudice against Africans on the continent and people of African descent in the Diaspora.

 

-                      Strongly reaffirm that States which pursued racist policies or acts of racial discrimination, such as slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, should assume their full responsibilities and provide adequate reparations to those States, communities and individuals who were victims of such racist policies or acts, regardless of when or by whom they were committed.

-                       

International law supports the position that the enslavement of Africans was a crime against humanity. The Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal defined crimes against humanity in this manner: “Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against any civilian population… whether or not in violation of the domestic law of the country where perpetuated.”

 

The African Reparations Movement explains that, “Historians and their experts can show, without difficulty, how the invasion of African territories, the mass capture of Africans, the horrors of the middle passage, the chattelization of Africans in America , and the extermination of the language and culture of the transported Africans, constituted violations of all these international laws.” Thus, the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade was a Crime Against Humanity and, it is clear, African people are owed reparations throughout the world.

 

Again, as Atty. Wareham explains, “Before the U.N. World Conferences are actually held, they are preceded by PrepCom (Preparatory Committee meetings) in the various geographical regions of the world where the actual content of the final document , the program of action was worked out, and the PreComs were completed. All of the regional PreComs are over. In Geneva, Switzerland, a working group meeting held March 6 –9 , 2001 to consider a Draft Declaration (the Durban Declaration) and tried to resolve a dispute about whether compensatory relief (i.e. reparations) should even be considered as a theme of the World Conference. This was only an issue because of U. S. and Western European opposition.” The dispute was not settled and another meeting will be held in May in Geneva.

 

The New York Times revealed, “A conference on racism this summer could be one of the most explosive meetings this organization (United Nations) has ever held, with moves afoot to cast globalization as a racial issue and to demand reparations for the slave trade and colonialism.”

 

For more than twenty years, the December 12th Movement International Secretariat has fought in defense of the human rights of African people at the United Nations, in both Switzerland and New York. During this time, they have come to help us understand that while we, as African people, may not recognize the importance of the international agency to the progress of our struggle, but the United States and its allies are crystal clear about it.

 

NBUF agrees with the December 12th Movement that we must continue to organize at the international level in bringing the issues of African people before the world and especially the issue of Reparations. One way we can continue this work is to organize around the United Nations declared 2011 “Year for People of African Descent.”

WORTH REPEATING:

 

 

GLADYS AND JAMIE SCOTT

(EXAMPLES OF SAVAGE RACISM IN THE US JUSTICE SYSTEM)

 

The African-American sisters have been in the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility since October 1994 after they were convicted for allegedly stealing eleven dollars from a Scott County convenience store in December 1993.

LINK:  Free Jamie Scott and Gladys Scott

 

The Scott sisters allegedly steal $11 and serve sixteen years in jail.  Chaney’s charges involve $180 million allegedly paid in bribes to Nigerian officials, and the US gets him off the hook, and he neither goes before a judge nor to jail.  Is this the epitome of DOUBLE STANDARDS or what? 

 

By the way, they are free now, but not without a stipulation.  One sister had to give the other a kidney.

 

***

 

BLACK MOM SENT TO JAIL

FOR SEND HER KIDS TO A WHITE SCHOOL

 

If the Scott Sisters case, whereby Sisters stole $11 doesn’t speak loud and clear about the horrific racism in the US, consider another issue of an equally racist nature…the entire article follows below:

 

Convicted felon Kelley Williams-Bolar is sitting in an Akron, Ohio, jail right now for trying to provide a better education and safer environment for her children. Years ago, Williams-Bolar took her daughters from Akron's public housing after their home was burglarized and placed them with their grandfather in Copley Township. Summit County prosecutors contend the move was all a ruse and the girls belonged in Akron Public Schools, not the Copley-Fairlawn district. Williams-Bolar and her father were indicted. She was convicted of tampering with records.

 

Two different cases where Blacks are sent to jail, but not the former US Vice President, guilty of bribery to the tune of $180, and rather than justice be served, the government clears him of his crime – no police, no jail, and no shame.  These are perfect examples of how more Blacks are sent to prisons than Whites.  This is what’s commonly called radically racist “double standards”.   And the government allows this hypocrisy to perpetuate giving Black People no other alternative but to take matters into their own hands.  If issues that plague Blacks cannot be resolved legally, such as jobs for Blacks and quality school systems for Black children and youth, then matters are taken into their own hands in an effort to achieve what Whites receive automatically.

 

***

 

Now, here comes another incident just as racist and without justice served as the others.  Had this police officer been Black, he would have served time and lost his pension.  There is no end to the double standards:

 

Jon Burge, Ex-Cop Convicted of Lying About Black Male Torture,

to Keep $3,000 Monthly Pension

If authorities are looking for a way to erode the small amount of trust African Americans have in the criminal justice system, they seem to have struck gold.


Ex-Chicago cop Jon Burge, recently sentenced to four and a half years in prison for lying about a police torture ring that may have victimized more than 100 black men, will be allowed to keep his $3,039 per month pension, the police pension board has ruled.


Their reasoning is absolutely ludicrous: Burge's conviction, they decided, had nothing to do with his job as a police officer.



That's like saying LeBron James' job has nothing to do with dunking basketballs or that a teacher's job has nothing to do with whether students learn.

Nigeria files bribery charges against Dick Cheney

 

By The Associated Press

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 -- 5:22 pm

dickcheneysneer Nigeria files bribery charges against Dick CheneyNigeria's anti-corruption agency on Tuesday charged former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney over a bribery scheme involving oil services firm Halliburton Co. during time he served as its top official, a spokesman said.

 

The charges stem from a case involving as much as $180 million allegedly paid in bribes to Nigerian officials, said Femi Babafemi, a spokesman for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

 

Halliburton and other firms allegedly paid the bribes to win a contract to build a $6 billion liquefied natural gas plant in Nigeria's oil-rich southern delta, he said.

 

Terrence O'Donnell, a lawyer representing Cheney, denied the allegations.

 

"The Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission investigated that joint venture extensively and found no suggestion of any impropriety by Dick Cheney in his role of CEO of Halliburton," O'Donnell's said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. "Any suggestion of misconduct on his part, made now, years later, is entirely baseless."

 

The Halliburton case involves its former subsidiary KBR, a major engineering and construction services firm based in Houston. In February 2009, KBR Inc. pleaded guilty in U.S. federal court to authorizing and paying bribes from 1995 to 2004 for the plant contracts in Nigeria.

 

KBR, which split from Halliburton in 2007, agreed to pay more than $400 million in fines in the plea deal.

Halliburton spokeswoman Tara Mullee Agard said the company had not seen the new charges Tuesday, but insisted the company had nothing to do with the project.

 

Babafemi said Halliburton, its Nigerian subsidiary, Halliburton CEO David J. Lesar, former KBR CEO Albert "Jack" Stanley and current KBR CEO William Utt all face similar charges in the case. The spokesman said each charge in the 16-count indictment carried as much as three years in prison.

 

Heather L. Browne, a KBR spokeswoman, said in a statement that Utt joined the firm in 2006, two years after prosecutors say the bribery case concluded.

 

"The actions of the Nigerian government suggest that its officials are wildly and wrongly asserting blame in this matter," Browne's statement read. "KBR will continue to vigorously defend itself and its executives, if necessary, in this matter."

 

Stanley pleaded guilty in 2008 to federal bribery charges for his role in the scheme. He is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court on Jan. 19.

 

Nigeria, a major oil supplier to the U.S., long has been considered by analysts and watchdog groups as having one of the world's most corrupt governments. Federal prosecutors in the U.S. have filed a series of charges over the construction of the Bonny Island liquefied natural gas plant under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. That law makes it unlawful for companies doing work in the U.S. to bribe foreign government officials or company executives to secure or retain business.

 

Cheney resigned as Halliburton's CEO in 2000 to run as former President George W. Bush's vice president. Babafemi declined to comment when asked how likely it was that Cheney would be extradited to Nigeria over the charges.

 

"We are following the laws of the land. We want to follow the laws and see where it will go," the spokesman said. "We're very convinced by the time the trial commences, we'd make application for appropriate court orders to be issued."

 

There could be political calculations at play in the new charges. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan faces a coming primary election in the nation's ruling party against former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

 

Critics have tried to connect Abubakar to this bribery case in the past and the charges come as the election looms. Abubakar has denied any involvement.

Criminal or Great Parent: Black Mother Jailed

for Sending Daughters to White School

 

|

 

 

Kelly Williams-Bolar was sentenced to 10 days in jail for tampering with records.

Convicted felon Kelley Williams-Bolar is sitting in an Akron, Ohio, jail right now for trying to provide a better education and safer environment for her children. Years ago, Williams-Bolar took her daughters from Akron's public housing after their home was burglarized and placed them with their grandfather in Copley Township. Summit County prosecutors contend the move was all a ruse and the girls belonged in Akron Public Schools, not the Copley-Fairlawn district. Williams-Bolar and her father were indicted. She was convicted of tampering with records.

This is the county's first-ever criminal indictment accusing a parent of theft and record tampering for usurping school residency requirements. Williams-Bolar maintains that her daughters resided in both residences and provided a power of attorney giving her father guardianship over the girls after the home invasion. That wasn't enough, and Williams-Bolar was sentenced to 10 days in jail and now faces losing her job as a special-needs teaching assistant at Buchtel High School because of the felony conviction. Williams-Bolar, who is one semester shy of completing her education degree at the University of Akron, may also be kicked out of school.

All of this because she sent her daughters to a school district where her father resides? Where are the girls now while she sits in jail? Living with their grandfather. According to Williams-Bolar, there were more than three dozen families who violated the rule, but she and her father were the only family to be prosecuted. She plans to appeal her conviction.

We suppose a misdeameanor and probation would not have sufficed as a legitimate warning? Message received: "Don't send your hood children to our white school district with better funding, educational resources and safety provisions." Even so, separating from her children a woman who is trying to better herself and her family seems silly. If she had left her kids unattended in the projects to get hurt walking home from school, she would be a bad mother. She tried to do something about it by sending them to their grandfather's house and gets punished for it with a felony conviction. With all that's going on in Akron in terms of crime and blight, this is who they choose to prosecute?

Disappointing and absurd, to say the least.

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.

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

·         Posted by TheBlackList on December 25, 2010 at 7:07pm in Call To Action

·         Back to Call To Action Discussions

 

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."

READING FOR THE SOUL TO STRENGTHEN OUR FEAR, LOVE, HOPE, AND TRUST IN THE MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD TO DO HIS WILL:

 

 

 

I CRIED UNTO GOD…

AND HE GAVE EAR UNTO ME

 

“I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

 

 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

 

 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

 

 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

 

 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

 

 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.

 

 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?

 

 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?

 

 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.

 

 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.

 

 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.

 

 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

 

 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

 

 Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

 

 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.

 

 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.

 

 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.

 

 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

 

 Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

 

 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.”   Psalm Seventy-seventh Chapter

 

 

TURN US AGAIN, O GOD OF HOSTS

AND CAUSE THY FACE TO SHINE;

AND WE SHALL BE SAVED

 

“Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

 

 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.

 

 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

 

 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?

 

 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.

 

 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.

 

 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

 

 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.

 

 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.

 

 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

 

 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.

 

 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?

 

 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

 

 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;

 

 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

 

 It is burned with fire, it iscut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

 

 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.

 

 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.

 

 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.”   Psalm Eightieth Chapter

 

 

BLESSED IS THE MAN

THAT FEARETH THE LORD

THAT DELIGHTETH GREATLY IN HIS COMMANDMENTS

 

“Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

 

 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

 

 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

 

 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

 

 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

 

 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

 

 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

 

 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

 

 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

 

 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.”   Psalm One Hundred twelfth Chapter

 

 

LET ISRAEL REJOICE IN HIM THAT MADE HIM

LET THE CHILDREN OF ZION BE JOYFUL IN THEIR KING

 

Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

 

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

 

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

 

For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

 

Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

 

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

 

To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

 

To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

 

To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD. “”   Psalm One Hundred forty-ninth Chapter
