Thousands of Ethiopian Israelis protest racism in Jerusalem march

By Max Schindler

Thousands of Ethiopian Israelis and their supporters marched through central Jerusalem on Wednesday to call attention to a recent groundswell of racism and discrimination.

Holding picket signs and shouting “a new generation demands change,” the demonstrators joined a wave of protests triggered by a Channel 2 report last week that a group of homeowners in Kiryat Malachi—a Southern town with a large Ethiopian population— signed a pledge to neither rent nor sell to Israelis of Ethiopian origin.

The news sparked outrage in the Ethiopian community and demands by activists for a response from the government.

Mulet Araru, a 26-year-old university student, led the protest after walking for three days from Kiryat Malakhi, some 60 kilometers from Jerusalem. In a hoarse voice, Araru addressed the crowd, declaring, “I have no other land,” infusing his speech with traditional Zionist rhetoric and slogans.

The protestors marched from the Knesset to Independence Park, with a quick stop in front of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in the neighborhood of Rechavia. At the Knesset, opposition MKs Tzipi Livni (Kadima) and Shelly Yachimovich (Labor) addressed the crowd.

The atmosphere seemed tense at times, with activists sprinting towards Netanyahu’s home. Most demonstrators were students of Ethiopian origin, many of high school age.

With differing and sometimes competing protest signs, the crowd spanned the ideological spectrum. Some demonstrators hoisted Israeli flags while others clutched photos of Nelson Mandela and sharply criticized Israel’s treatment of their community.

One Israeli-Ethiopian man held a sign asking “Is there a future for me in this state?” Others carried posters appropriating phrases and symbols from the American civil rights movement and black American figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X.

Some 120,000 Jews of Ethiopian origin reside in the country, many of them having arrived in three airlift operations in the 1980s and early 1990s. Many continue to face socioeconomic difficulties, racism and other barriers to social integration – including segregation in schools, and challenges stemming from theRabbinate’s refusal to recognize the community’s religious leaders.

Israel To End Ancient African Jewish Custom?

Written by Associated Press on January 18, 2012 8:29 amClick for More Next Post

 

African Jews

ASHKELON, Israel — Israel is closing the books on a rare millennia-old Jewish tradition.

SEE ALSO: Mutombo’s Congolese Gold Scandal

Nearly three decades after Israel began airlifting Ethiopia’s ancient Jewish community out of the Horn of Africa, Israel’s rabbis are now working to phase out the community’s white-turbaned clergy, the kessoch, whose unusual religious practices are at odds with the rabbinate’s Orthodox Judaism.

The effort has added to the sense of discrimination felt by Israel’s 120,000 Ethiopian citizens. These sentiments boiled over this month after a group of landlords in the southern town of Kiryat Malachi refused to accept them as tenants, prompting a large rally planned for Wednesday across from Israel’s parliament.

“We are just like all the other Jews. We don’t have any other religion,” said Kess Semai Elias, 42.

Descendants of the lost Israelite tribe of Dan, according to Jewish lore, Ethiopian Jews spent millennia isolated from the rest of the Jewish world. In most Jewish communities, the priesthood of the Bible was replaced by rabbis who emphasized text study and prayer. Ethiopia’s Jewish kessoch continued the traditions of Biblical-era priests, sacrificing animals and collecting the first fruits of the harvest.

The two traditions diverged so much that the first trickle of Ethiopian Jewish immigrants to Israel were asked to undergo a quickened conversion ceremony to appease rabbis who were dubious about their religious pedigree.

When Israeli clandestine operations rescued large groups of Ethiopian Jews from war and famine in the 1980s and early 1990s, a rabbinic consensus was reached and the newcomers did not have to convert – except for a group known as the Falash Mura, whose ancestors were forcibly converted to Christianity generations before.

The 58 kessoch who arrived in Israel in those early days maintained their leadership role in the Ethiopian Jewish community, and in 1992 successfully lobbied the Israeli government to grant them salaries and status similar to those of government rabbis. But as the aging clergy began ordaining a new generation of kessoch over the past decade, and those new leaders also wanted recognition, Israel’s rabbinate objected.

After public demonstrations and a brief hunger strike, the newly ordained kessoch struck a bittersweet deal last month with Israel’s ministry of religious services.

The ministry would finally implement a 2010 government resolution to recognize 13 of them and give them state salaries. But Israel’s state rabbis made it very clear to the new kessoch: They would be the last.

“It’s for the best,” said Rabbi Yosef Hadana, 63, of the Israeli rabbinate.

Himself the son of a respected kess, Hadana long ago traded the shash, the white turban of his father’s tradition, for the black suit and fedora of ultra-Orthodox Jews.

“After 2,500 years of isolation from the nation of Israel, we have returned. Now we need to find a way to be one people,” Rabbi Hadana said.

Hadana says he holds great respect for the kessoch. They were the ones who once spun tales of Jerusalem’s splendor at evening storytelling sessions, keeping alive the Ethiopian Jews’ religious tradition. But anyone in Israel who wants to continue that tradition, he said, must get rabbinic training. Streamlining their religious practice can help integrate Ethiopian immigrants into Israeli society, he said.

Ethiopian-Israelis have long struggled in Israel, with literacy rates relatively low, the culture gap wide and rates of poverty and domestic violence well above the national average.

Many of the older generation work menial jobs, men as security guards and women as cleaners. Their children, most of whom grew up in Israel’s Orthodox Jewish religious schools, speak fluent Hebrew, serve in the army alongside native Israelis and are increasingly studying engineering and sciences in Israel’s universities. Despite these gains, the younger generation is still struggling compared to other Israelis.

The immigrants have also long complained of discrimination. In the late 90s it was discovered that Israel’s health services were throwing out Ethiopian-Israelis’ blood donations over fears of diseases contracted in Africa.

This is not the first time in history that Ethiopian Jews have been asked to reform. Jacques Faitlovitch, one of the first Jewish outsiders to meet the community, told the kessoch in 1904 they would have to stop antiquated paschal sacrifices if they wanted acceptance in the wider Jewish world.

Polish-born Faitlovitch also pushed them to stop Judaism’s last existing monastic tradition. Ethiopia’s last Jewish monk spent his final days in Israel, secluded in a synagogue annex and preparing his own food for reasons of purity. He died about 10 years ago.

Other traditions, like priestly tithes and huts for menstruating women, were also given up upon moving to Israel.

Still, the kessoch, easily recognized by their ceremonial fly-swatting tassels and rainbow-colored sunbrellas, are not ready to be relegated to history. First-generation Ethiopian immigrants still call on them to adjudicate family conflicts, lead funeral prayers, and slaughter meat according to tradition.

Israel only recently allowed kessoch into butcheries to slaughter their own animals – even though it is not considered kosher by rabbinic standards.

But the rabbis still put their foot down when it comes to marriage. To be legal, weddings must be presided by state-recognized rabbis and include mainstream Jewish practices, like exchanging rings and stomping on a glass.

Despite the country’s secular majority, its Orthodox rabbis strictly govern Jewish weddings. Israel does not recognize civil marriages, intermarriages or marriages performed by rabbis from the more liberal Reform and Conservative branches of Judaism – unless they took place abroad.

Israeli rabbis have now agreed to train the 13 new kessoch to perform marriages the mainstream Jewish way. Nevertheless, for most of the kessoch, the prohibition on marrying is such a slap in the face that they cannot bear to show up at the weddings of their own community members.

Instead, they perform their own pirate wedding ceremonies for the newlyweds a few days later – a modest reenactment of the weeklong marriage celebrations they used to hold back in Africa.

At one nighttime ceremony in seaside Ashkelon, women in embroidered cotton robes bounced their shoulders to African beats. Family and friends greeted the couple with the toot of a golden horn. Honey beer flowed from a steel kettle, and an army of men scooped curried lamb – slaughtered by the presiding kess – onto flat injera bread.

Newly ordained Kess Abiyu Azariya, 44, pushed his way to the head of the dance floor. Wearing a white turban and shawl, he recited wedding blessings in the ancient Ethiopian tongue, Geez. “I am singing these prayers to remind the young people what a wedding was like in Ethiopia,” he told the crowd in spoken Amharic.

But the young people were nowhere in sight. Most of the 300 revelers in the room were of the older generation. The dozen young Ethiopian-Israelis who showed up that evening were outside drinking cheap Israeli beer and fiddling with their smartphones. When asked about the practice, they were ambivalent.

“I hope it continues, but it probably won’t,” said David Nadou, 24, shrugging.

The newly ordained kessoch are trying to work against that tide. Kess Semai says they’re close to ordaining yet another group of 30 kessoch – even though Israel vows not to recognize any more.

“We kept this tradition for more than 2,500 years,” Kess Semai said. “Our community won’t allow in the span of 30 years for this tradition to be erased completely.”

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

 

MAN’S CORRUPT JUSTICE SYSTEM

 

In this month’s journal I will leave you with a short testimony to the CREATOR G-D. I have learned that so long as I stay in this country, England (UK), I cannot expect help from the CREATOR G-D when it comes to the justice system as in Psalm 82:

1. A song of Asaph. God stands in the congregation of God; in the midst of the judges He will judge.

2. How long will you judge unjustly and favor the wicked forever?

3. Judge the poor and orphan; justify the humble and the impoverished.

4. Release the poor and the needy; save [them] from the hands of [the] wicked.

5. They did not know and they do not understand [that] they will walk in darkness; all the foundations of the earth will totter.

6. I said, "You are angelic creatures, and all of you are angels of the Most High."

7. Indeed, as man, you will die, and as one of the princes, you will fall.

8. Arise, O God, judge the earth, for You inherit all the nations.


We see that G-D does not bother with judgment in their arena as this justice is based on man's corrupt ways and not the Justice of the Most High.

 However In Deuteronomy 1:

16. And I commanded your judges at that time, saying, "Hear [disputes] between your brothers and judge justly between a man and his brother, and between his litigant.
17. You shall not favor persons in judgment; [rather] you shall hear the small just as the great; you shall not fear any man, for the judgment is upon the Lord,

 This tells us that in the end the judgment is G-D's, and this we can be sure of.

 Some years ago I lost a family custody case but now the situation is 100% reversed in my favor a turnaround without the aid of man.

 More recently, I received points for speeding even though the court could not prove I was driving. I have come to the conclusion that the MOST HIGH does not always intervene in man’s system even when justice has not been done but does as promised in HIS Word:  HE always corrects the wrongdoing when i) chastisement of the individual coupled with HIS mercy ii) toward the wrongdoer by way of patience until HE decides when and how.

We must never lie and we must always let justice take its course.

Deuteronomy 19:
15. One witness shall not rise up against any person for any iniquity or for any sin, regarding any sin that he will sin. By the mouth of two witnesses, or by the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be confirmed.
16. If a false witness rises up against a man, to bear perverted testimony against him,
17. Then the two men between whom the controversy exists shall stand before the Lord, before the kohanim and the judges who will be in those days.
18. And the judges shall inquire thoroughly, and behold, the witness is a false witness; he has testified falsely against his brother;
19. then you shall do to him as he plotted to do to his brother, and you shall [thus] abolish evil from among you.
20. And those who remain shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer continue to commit any such evil thing among you.
21. You shall not have pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

PROVED!!!!
 I hope you all get what I am relaying here and that you must understand that we need to leave our host Nations as soon as possible.

Tribute to the New Moon:

 

 

Select the Month and Year for Monthly Moon Phase Calendar:

http://www.physics.sjsu.edu/tomley/MoonPhase.html

(Copy the link into your browser.)

 

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 from one sabbath to another,

shall all flesh come to worship before me,

saith the LORD.”

START THE NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF

 

<<< JANUARY 23,24,25, 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

A Tribute to GOD’s “HOLY” Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST - HIS WEEKLY ANNIVERSARY OBSERVANCE and SIGN between HIM and Israelites for HIS CREATION of the Heavens and the Earth:

 

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,

to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:

for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth,

and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”  

Exodus 31:17,18

 

Since we know for a fact that GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath is a “Sign” between HIM and Israel, why take any chance to profane it?  Every passage about the Holy Sabbath of COMPLETE Rest stands strong in support of GOD’s Commandment to abide in our places on the Seventh Day (Exodus 16:29) – ever last one of them – including the passage in Jeremiah where we are Commanded to “Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;”  Jeremiah 17:21   (Please read verses 21 to 27.)

 

Perhaps the wise thing to do would be to define the word “burden.”  But more importantly, we need to determine whether or not Exodus 16:29 is a Commandment or not.  And if it is determined to be one, then we should Fear the GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE has Commanded of us.

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power

and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship,

and to him shall ye do sacrifice.  And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law,

and the commandment, which he wrote for you,

he shall observe to do for ever more;

and ye shall not fear other gods.”

II Kings 17:36,37

 

Why must we debate that which is clearly written for us to do and for very good reason, if we will only consider and think about it?  The Holy ONE wants us to be first to observe HIS weekly Anniversary of Creation, which is to keep HIS Holy Seventh day at REST, as HE did, in order that we might be REFRESHED!  

 

“REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY”

Exodus 20:8

 

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”   Exodus 16:29

 

“And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

 

“Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.”  Exodus 35:1,2

 

“Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation [“HOLY DAY”]; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.”   Leviticus 23:3

 

“Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”   Exodus 31:15 - 17

 

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:2,3

 

Significantly, in the beginning when the Holy ONE of Israel established this Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST and when HE clearly COMMANDED the Children of Israel in the Wilderness to observe this Holy Day, HE MADE NO EXCEPTIONS! 

 

If “ALL” GOD’s COMMANDMENTS are sure, then for sure, we must give credence to Exodus 16:29 and abide in our places on GOD’s HOLY Seventh Day of Complete REST as we are COMMANDED TO DO!

 

“He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.”   Psalm 111:7

 

GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST is not only one of HIS Greatest WORKS of all time, but this Holy Day is an extraordinary “SIGN” between this Most High GOD, the CREATOR and HIS Chosen People, the Children of Israel!  This Seventh Day also marks the Anniversary of GOD ending the Creations of the Heavens, Earth, man, and all that is therein.

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:1 - 3

 

“And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”   Exodus 16:23,29

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.”   Exodus 24:12

 

“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should DO SO IN THE LAND whither ye go to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 4:5 (Caps. are mine.)

 

CONSIDER ALSO the fact that the CREATOR GOD of Israel only Commanded that we go to Jerusalem “THREE TIMES in the year”.  Had the Holy ONE wanted us to travel to Jerusalem on HIS Holy Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST, HE would have Commanded that, as well.  Thus, given Exodus 16:29, we have to realize, understand, and accept the fact that it was never HIS intention for us to travel and/or leave our places on HIS most Holy Seventh Day. 

 

“Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.  Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)  And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.  Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.”   Exodus 23:14 - 17

 

“Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast”   Deuteronomy 16:16

 

There is no Scripture indicating that Israelites traveled to Jerusalem on GOD’s HALLOWED SEVENTH DAY.

 

THE PLACE THAT OUR GOD OF ISRAEL CHOSE IS THE HOLY CITY JERUSALEM.

 

The Israelite Way of Life was set in stone in the Wilderness, as to how we are Commanded to prepare to live according to ALL GOD’s LAW, as well as for HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, i.e., how we are supposed to keep it, as well as the consequences for profaning it.  And there are no exceptions.

 

CONCERNING “HOLY CONVOCATION”

 

The issue stemming from the meaning of “Holy Convocation” written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter is real, and the interpretation is grossly misunderstood.  “Holy Convocation” does not mean “To Gather.”  And the sin committed by traveling and gathering on the CREATOR’s Holy Sabbath of Complete REST has grave consequences (Exodus 31:12 - 18).

 

Conclusive evidence that “holy convocation” DOES NOT mean to assemble is provided in the passage on Passover.   In Exodus 12:16 we are told that Passover is a “holy convocation” but yet, we are Commanded to observe this High Holy Day with our immediate families and only to join with another family if one’s members are too few for the lamb (Exodus 12:4).  This proves without a doubt that “holy convocation” cannot mean to assemble, but rather to keep the holy days “HOLY.”  Some call attention to the fact that because Israelites were Commanded to ”…turn in the morning and go into their tents”  (Deuteronomy 16:5-7) that this is proof of an assembly.  Those Israelite families that joined with others are the ones GOD Commanded to return to their tents.

 

The Holy ONE of Israel DOES NOT contradict HIMSELF!  HE would not COMMAND us to “Rest” on the Sabbath Day of Rest and also Command us to “abide ye every man in your place on the seventh day,” and then confuse us by telling us to “assemble” on the “rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD.”  This would make absolutely no sense whatsoever.  Therefore, if the Holy ONE of Israel said don’t bear a burden on the Sabbath Day of Rest (Jeremiah 17:21,22) and that our asses (used for travel) had to also rest, then for sure we have to “abide in our places…on the seventh day.”  Thus, using our cars and paying tolls and public transportation on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest is absolutely forbidden!  And walking to the Temple or to any meeting place was and still is out of the question all because GOD’s Seventh Day is specifically to be kept as a DAY of  “COMPLETE REST” - Shabatone (as is written in Hebrew).

 

The wise, obedient ones understand the great importance of observing this Seventh Day of Rest exactly as GOD Commanded and will not add to or diminish from this Law of the “Blessed,” “Sanctified,” and “HolySeventh Day Sabbath.

QUESTIONS ON “OLD TESTAMENT” BIBLE TRIVIA TO PONDER:

 

QUESTIONS TWO:

 

1.

“O LORD, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies! For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?”   Joshua 7:8,9

 

“Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.”   Psalm 99:3

 

“For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.”   I Samuel 12:22

 

What is the reason the CREATOR GOD deems HIS Holy Name “Great”?

 

***

 

2.

“And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”   Genesis 32:30

 

How can we explain what Jacob meant when he said, “I have seen GOD face to face”?

 

Q AND A (QUESTION AND ANSWER):

 

“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;”   Isaiah 11:1,2

 

Why is it that JC cannot be the “Branch” as many Messianics and Christians believe? 

 

Isaiah is making a reference to the Kingdom of David.  As it is written, ONLY the GOD of Israel can choose the King of Israel who, by the way, must be conceived by copulation.  JC was supposedly born of the “holy ghost”, which is an invention unheard of in the Hebrew Scriptures.  Therefore, he cannot be of the seed of Jesse, and he certainly cannot be the “Branch”. 

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 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. For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from 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 9:13 – 16

 

“For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.”   Malachi 1:11

 

And how can we explain to others that JC did not and never will have the “Power”?

 

If JC had the “Power”, GOD would not have allowed him to be put upon a “cross”, showing others his weakness and inability to save himself.  Moreover, he would have Judged the wicked even for the short time it is lied that he was on Earth.   But on the contrary, JC is assumed to be a “lord and savior”, when in Truth, there is no evidence that he ever existed, even unto this day for he is proved to be more of an absentee “lord and savior” than anything else.

 

For sure, if JC really had had any power at all, the GOD of Israel would have made it known exactly as HE had done by Moses and by Joshua.

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;”   Numbers 27:13

 

Where has the CREATOR GOD of Israel ever said this of JC?  JC neither had the power of Moses and Joshua nor the “Power” of the CREATOR GOD.  “Power” belongs to the CREATOR to give it to whomsoever HE will.  And when the seed of Jesse encompasses “the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD”, then we will all know that the “Branch” has the “Power” to Judge and to turn nations to the ONE True and Living GOD.

 

“Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.”   I Chronicles 29:11 – 13

 

“The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth…”   Psalm 9:16

 

IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!  LET ONLY THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL BE EXALTED AND WORSHIPPED NOW AND FOR EVERMORE!

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.

Chlorine bleach is a chemical that most of us have in our homes. It's very handy for multiple applications including cleaning and disinfecting; but may not be all that earth friendly. A good alternative to consider is hydrogen peroxide.

 

Most of the debate about chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) stems from its ability to form more toxic byproducts such as dioxin, furans and other organochlorines when reacting with other elements.

 

Hydrogen Peroxide on the other hand, is simply water with an extra oxygen molecule (H2O2) and breaks down into oxygen and water. It's certainly kinder on the environment. H2O2 is produced by both animal and plant cells and is formed naturally in the environment by sunlight acting on water.

 

Many industrial bleaching operations, such as those used in the production of paper, are increasingly moving towards the use of hydrogen peroxide for a greener bleaching process. It's also the active ingredient in many "oxygen" bleaches and is used extensively for lightening hair.

 

Be careful when purchasing and handling this substance as some commercially available "food grade" hydrogen peroxide is 35% pure, highly corrosive and can be toxic or fatal if ingested at that strength.

Hydrogen peroxide should be diluted down to 3% as a base for most applications. It's also readily available in 3% solution from your local pharmacy or drugstore; which is probably the preferable and safer way to buy it, especially if you can take your empty bottles back for exchange/refilling - that can help cut down the cost.

If you choose to dilute a 35% solution yourself, add the hydrogen peroxide to distilled water rather than the other way around and wear gloves, body and eye protection when doing so.

 

Hydrogen Peroxide tips and uses

 

- Keep it out of direct sunlight and in a cool place, as exposure to the sun and heat will quickly break it down into oxygen and water; rendering it ineffective. Store it in a dark bottle and remember to keep it out of reach of children.

 

- Dip your toothbrush in a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide solution to help kill bacteria on the brush after brushing.

 

- A tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution  in a cup of water can be used as a mouthwash - swish for up to 60 seconds once a day; but don't swallow and be sure to rinse your mouth out afterwards. This can also help whiten teeth.

 

- Hydrogen peroxide in a 3% solution applied to a rag can be used to clean benchtops and cutting boards to help kill salmonella and other bacteria

 

- Half fill a spray bottle with a 3% solution and then top it up with water for use as a bathroom and toilet disinfectant and cleaner. This is especially useful if you have a septic, greywater or blackwater treatment system as it won't harm the bacteria in the treatment areas - the hydrogen peroxide would have diluted to a point that renders it harmless by that stage through the interaction with flush water.

 

- Mix a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with two parts water in a spray bottle and use on areas affected by mold. You can try a neat 3% solution for areas like bathroom tiling, but be careful on the strength in relation to painted items as it may bleach them.

 

- Make a whitening toothpaste by mixing baking soda and enough 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to form a paste

 

- Use 3% hydrogen peroxide to sterilize cuts and abrasions - the fizzing you'll see occur is normal.

 

- To help kill bacteria such as E. Coli on fruits and vegetables, add a quarter cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a sink full of cold water. immerse, rinse with cold water and drain. By killing bacteria this will also help keep fruit and vegetables fresher for longer. You can also use a spraybottle containing a 50/50 mix of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water - just spray and rinse.

 

- Add a cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide to your white(s) wash in place of bleach

 

- Remove bloodstains from clothing by blotting stain with 3% hydrogen peroxide, then rinse promptly with cold water to avoid bleaching of the fabric.

 

- To remove yellowing from lace curtains or tablecloths, fill a sink with cold water and add 2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least an hour, rinse in cold water and air dry

 

Hydrogen peroxide can not only be a more earth-friendly replacement for chlorine bleach, but has many more uses around your home!

Herbs and Spices & Diabetes

 

Feb 22, 2011 | By Owen Pearson

 

Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by insufficient production or inefficient use of insulin, according to Phyllis Balch, author of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing." Headaches, fatigue, dizziness, high blood cholesterol and confusion are common symptoms. Although herbs and spices will not cure diabetes, they may help manage its symptoms.

Check with your doctor before using any herb or spice to treat diabetes.

 

Hot Peppers

Hot peppers such as habaneros, serranos, jalapenos and cayennes are primarily known for their culinary uses; however, they may also help manage the symptoms of diabetes. These peppers contain a chemical compound called capsaicin, which may lower blood sugar levels, helping to prevent dizziness and fatigue, according to Balch. Capsaicin may also lower "bad" cholesterol that can contribute to diabetes-related heart disease. Check with your physician before using hot peppers -- they may cause stomach pain and skin rashes.

Meadowsweet

European herbalists brought meadowsweet, an aromatic herb native to Germany, to North America in the early 1800s. They recommended meadowsweet as a remedy for stomach pains and diarrhea, according to Michael Castleman, author of "The New Healing Herbs." German physicians also used meadowsweet for pain relief and fever reduction. Salicin, the primary chemical in the flowers of this herb, may also help lower blood glucose levels. However, studies linking meadowsweet to glucose management are not conclusive. Talk to your doctor if you plan to treat diabetes with meadowsweet. It may irritate peptic ulcers.

 

Uva Ursi

Traditional Chinese physicians have used uva ursi as an antiseptic for more than 1000 years, according to Castleman. Uva ursi is also a diuretic that may help treat kidney problems and water retention. The chemical compounds in uva ursi may also help regulate glucose levels in your bloodstream, preventing the symptoms of diabetes. Consult your physician before using uva ursi to address diabetes symptoms -- chemicals called tannins in uva ursi may cause stomach upset.

 

Sage

The Greeks and Romans originally wrapped meat in sage leaves to preserve it. They also believed that sage could cure memory loss, epilepsy and chest pains. The chemical compounds in sage may also help clear excess glucose from your bloodstream, reducing your body's dependence on insulin, according to Castleman. However, further studies are needed to confirm that sage is beneficial for glucose reduction and diabetes management. Talk to your doctor if you plan to use sage as part of a diabetes management regimen. Sage contains thujone, a chemical that may be toxic to your liver and kidneys.

Turmeric Benefits: Turmeric Benefits Weight Loss and Diabetes!

by Kevin Flatt  


Filed under Diabetes, Nutrition/Herbs/Spices/ Supplements, Weight Loss

 

There may be a new way to spice up your weight loss routine, according to results from a new animal model study by Agricultural Research Service (ARS)-funded scientists and colleagues.

 

The researchers theorized that dietary curcumin (turmeric) could stall the spread of fat-tissue by inhibiting new blood vessel growth, called angiogenesis, which is necessary to build fat tissue.

 

Curcumin is a bioactive component in curry and turmeric that has been consumed daily in Asian countries for centuries without reported toxic side effects.

 

The study was led by nutritionist Mohsen Meydani at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) at Tufts University in Boston, Mass. Meydani is director of the HNRCA’s Vascular Biology Laboratory.

 

Eighteen mice were assigned to three groups of six mice each. For 12 weeks, the mice were fed special diets. A “control” group’s mix contained 4 percent fat, a “high fat” group’s mix contained 22 percent fat, and another group was fed the same “high fat” diet supplemented with curcumin.

 

A mouse typically eats about 3,000 to 3,500 milligrams (the weight of about six or seven paper clips) daily, so the curcumin-supplemented mice would have consumed about 1.5 to 1.75 milligrams of curcumin daily—a relatively small amount.

 

The researchers recorded the body weight and food consumption of the mice twice each week. At the end of the 12-week period, their total body weight and fat distribution were measured.

 

The study found that supplementing the animals’ high-fat diet with curcumin (turmeric) reduced body-weight gain and total body fat, even though food-intake was not affected, when compared to the non supplemented high-fat-diet group demonstrating curcumin's (turmeric) benefits for weight loss.

 

Turmeric Benefits Diabetes

The curcumin (turmeric) treated group also had less blood vessel growth in fat tissue. Blood glucose, triglyceride, fatty acid, cholesterol and liver fat levels also were lower which are all helpful in diabetes management.

 

At this time, it is not known whether the amount of curcumin (turmeric) normally present in food dishes prepared with turmeric is sufficient to inhibit complex fat-tissue secretions that are involved in recruiting new blood vessel growth.

 

The researchers’ next step is to determine the effectiveness of dietary intake of curcumin in reducing weight in humans.

 

The study results were published in the May issue of The Journal of Nutrition.

ARS is the principal intramural scientific research agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Shown to reverse inflammation associated with obesity

and improves blood sugar control

Turmeric, an Asian spice found in many curries, has a long history of use in reducing inflammation, healing wounds and relieving pain, but can it prevent diabetes? Since inflammation plays a big role in many diseases and is believed to be involved in onset of both obesity and Type 2 diabetes, Drew Tortoriello, M.D., an endocrinologist and research scientist at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University Medical Center, and his colleagues were curious what effect the herb might have on diabetic mice.

Dr. Tortoriello, working with pediatric resident Stuart Weisberg, M.D., Ph.D., and Rudolph Leibel, M.D., fellow endocrinologist and the co-director of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center, discovered that turmeric-treated mice were less susceptible to developing Type 2 diabetes, based on their blood glucose levels, and glucose and insulin tolerance tests. They also discovered that turmeric-fed obese mice showed significantly reduced inflammation in fat tissue and liver compared to controls. They speculate that curcumin, the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant ingredient in turmeric, lessens insulin resistance and prevents Type 2 diabetes in these mouse models by dampening the inflammatory response provoked by obesity.

Their findings are the subject of a soon-to-be published paper in Endocrinology and were presented at ENDO 2008, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in San Francisco this week.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has no known dose-limiting toxicities in doses of up to at least 12 grams daily in humans. The researchers tested high-doses of a dietary curcumin in two distinct mouse models of obesity and Type 2 diabetes: high-fat-diet-fed male mice and leptin-deficient obese female mice, with lean wild-type mice that were fed low-fat diets used as controls.

The inflammation associated with obesity was shown several years ago by researchers in the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center to be due in part to the presence of immune cells called macrophages in fat tissues throughout the body. These cells produce "cytokine" molecules that can cause inflammation in organs such as the heart, and islets of the pancreas, while also increasing insulin resistance in muscle and liver. Researchers hypothesized that by suppressing the number and activity of these cells, with turmeric or a drug with similar actions, it may be possible to reduce some of the adverse consequences of obesity.

Curcumin administration was also associated with a small but significant decline in body weight and fat content, despite level or higher calorie consumption, suggesting that curcumin beneficially influences body composition.

"It’s too early to tell whether increasing dietary curcumin [through turmeric] intake in obese people with diabetes will show a similar benefit," Dr. Tortoriello said. "Although the daily intake of curcumin one might have to consume as a primary diabetes treatment is likely impractical, it is entirely possible that lower dosages of curcumin could nicely complement our traditional therapies as a natural and safe treatment."

For now, the conclusion that Dr. Tortoriello and his colleagues have reached is that turmeric ““ and its active anti-oxidant ingredient, curcumin ““ reverses many of the inflammatory and metabolic problems associated with obesity and improves blood-sugar control in mouse models of Type 2 diabetes.

In addition to exploring novel methods of curcumin administration to increase its absorption, they are also interested in identifying novel anti-inflammatory processes invoked by curcumin and in adapting those processes in the development of more potent curcumin analogues.

Warning: Dangerous Diabetes
Drugs Don't Work

How to Halt or Reverse Diabetes with Methods
That Are Natural, Easy ... and Virtually Free

Diabetes Drugs Don't Work   D iabetes is the number-one lifestyle disease of modern times, and tens of millions of Americans are being handed prescriptions for anti-diabetic drugs that don't work. A large-scale study at Duke University School of Medicine and published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that despite serious risks and dangerous side effects, diabetes drugs offer few benefits and simply don't live up to their claims

   Duke researchers found that the combination of the blood-pressure drug Diovan (valsartan) and the anti-diabetes drug Starlix (nateglinide) failed to reduce risk of heart attack at all and that Diovan was only slightly successful in slowing -- but not necessarily preventing -- development of type 2 diabetes.

   Furthermore, practically all anti-diabetic drugs result in weight gain and eventual total dependency upon insulin injections, according to researchers Krentz, Nichols, and Gomez-Caminero in 2 recent articles published in Current Medical Research Opinion and Diabetes Obesity Metabolism.

   Lead researcher Robert Califf of the Duke study said, "This is a sobering confirmation of the need to continue to focus on lifestyle improvements."

   Unfortunately, the medical mainstream has failed miserably to help diabetic patients reverse their diabetes naturally. This failure is inexcusable considering that anyone can reverse type 2 diabetes and stop type 1 diabetes in its tracks in less than 4 weeks with the right plan -- a plan that....

  • Gets your blood sugar under control in 2012
  • Stops type 1 diabetes
  • Reverses type 2 diabetes
  • Eliminates dependence on diabetes drugs
  • Is so inexpensive that it's almost free
  • Is simple and easy to use
  • Has already helped patients and former diabetics all over the world
  • Completely reverses your diabetes, pre-diabetes, syndrome X, and blood sugar woes

   Unfortunately, very few diabetics know what actually does work. And that's because most doctors simply lack the necessary training and knowledge to steer their patients in the right direction.

   Too many doctors don't even discuss nutrition with their patients, and those who do often make matters worse by advising overly restrictive diets or unrealistic amounts of exercise. A recent paper published by the Society for Biomedical Diabetes Research says, "Diabetic patients encounter . . . confusing and contradictory advice from a variety of sources."

   As a result, diabetic patients "exhibit restrictive eating behaviors, they express feelings of dietary deprivation, and rigid dietary control is perceived as the only way to a proper diet and weight management. Binge eating, [excessive] restraint, and body dissatisfaction frequently occur among these patients."

   So if you've tried and failed to manage your diabetes naturally, it's not your fault! Doctors and the media do more to confuse than to clarify, and meanwhile the diabetes freight train leaves a staggering path of heartbreaking consequences in its path, such as the following:

  • Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, nontraumatic lower-limb amputations, and new cases of blindness among adults in the United States.
  • Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke.
  • Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States.
  • A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that at the rate things are going, as many as 1 in 3 U.S. adults will have diabetes by 2050.

   "These are alarming numbers that show how critical it is to change the course of type 2 diabetes," said Ann Albright, Ph.D., director of the CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation. "Successful programs to improve lifestyle choices on healthy eating and physical activity must be made more widely Natural Solutions to Diabetesavailable, because the stakes are too high and the personal toll too devastating to fail."

    The key phrase here is successful programs. To succeed you need to know exactly how to eat foods you love -- and feel satisfied, while still banishing diabetes. And you need to know about inexpensive supplements that help you slash your blood sugar effortlessly, such as . . .

==> The simple mineral that lowers diabetes risk. Researchers at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill conducted a 20-year study of 4,497 people and found that the risk of diabetes was 47% lower among participants with the highest intake of this mineral than among those with the lowest.

==> A well-loved spice that slashes blood sugar. Test subjects took as little as 1/4 teaspoon of this common spice daily, and nearly all subjects with diabetes showed substantial improvement. And the spice and diabetes were clearly connected because when the spice was no longer consumed, volunteers' blood sugar levels started to rise again.

   Obviously, a spice and a mineral alone aren't going to single-handedly reverse your diabetes permanently, but such powerful supplements combined with the right effective, easy, and inexpensive natural methods can put you on your way to ending diabetes. No drug in the world can do that, no matter what Big Pharma promises. In fact, drugs are often worse than ineffective -- they can even make your life miserable or even be more risky than diabetes itself.

   Consider the drug Avandia, once the most popular diabetes drug in the world, which was found in 2008 to dramatically increase risk of heart attacks and death. It took the FDA until last month to finally pull Avandia from the U.S. market.

   Another popular diabetes drug, Actos, has its own array of ugly side effects, including average weight gain of nearly 9 pounds and a higher risk of dangerous and possibly deadly fluid buildups. Furthermore, Actos's heart risks may be almost as bad as Avandia's, and some researchers have linked this drug to bladder cancer.

   A handful of doctors are getting behind the push to educate patients about what really works to cure diabetes. Dr. Scott Saunders. M.D., says natural approaches are the key. "Studying natural medicine is power," he says, explaining that you can absolutely reverse your diabetes yourself with simple steps that ...

==>

Are fast, painless, safe, and natural

==>

Based on proven home remedies

==>

Have zero negative side effects

==>

Will help you save thousands of dollars in medical bills, drugs, and hospital stays

==>

Will free you from stress and fear of diabetic symptoms

==>

Can halt the degenerative side effects of diabetes

==>

Are safe for type 1 & type 2 diabetes

==>

Will improve your overall health and immune system

   If you suffer from diabetes or pre-diabetes, you cannot afford to ignore the truth about how to stop this dangerous degenerative disease. Diabetes can kill you ... if you let it.

   But the good news is you don't have to let that happen. And you don't have to fear blindness, heart disease, chronic wounds that won't heal, or even amputation. And you definitely don't have to rely on expensive, dangerous drugs that don't work! You can reverse your diabetes in less than a month when you watch a free, informative video, and see how to fix the real cause of your diabetes ... using natural, safe, and easy methods that are virtually free.

   Now you can empower yourself with cutting edge information on healing yourself or your loved ones of diabetes. Watch this free video and learn to halt or reverse your diabetes.

5 Surprising Health Benefits of Coffee

 

By Susan McQuillan


Reviewed by QualityHealth's Medical Advisory Board

 

The next time you enjoy a cup of coffee, enjoy the fact that it may be protecting your health.

If you're sensitive to caffeine, there's no doubt that drinking coffee, especially multiple cups of coffee, may have some adverse effects, such as nervousness, restlessness, stomach upset and insomnia.  And if you're a long-time, heavy coffee drinker and you suddenly quit, you may experience withdrawal symptoms like headaches, fatigue, confusion, and mild depression. These are all symptoms associated with caffeine, however, and they are likely to affect you only if you are sensitive to caffeine.

 

Coffee contains many chemicals other than caffeine, including some that appear to be good for you, such as disease-fighting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances. If you drink several cups a day without suffering side effects, you may well be reaping a variety of health benefits. Coffee does a few things you may not know about, such as:

Lowers blood sugar. And as a result, at least eight clinical studies have shown that heavy coffee drinkers are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than nondrinkers and those who limit themselves to just one or two cups.

 

Protects against dementia and Parkinson's Diseases. Since type 2 diabetes is linked to dementia and coffee lowers the risk of developing diabetes, this may be the link.

 

Increases your resting metabolic rate. Your resting metabolic rate is the rate at which you burn calories when you're doing nothing more than sitting around breathing.

What's New and Beneficial About Broccoli

 

Broccoli can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you will cook it by steaming. The fiber-related components in broccoli do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they've been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it's easier for bile acids to be excreted, and the result is a lowering of your cholesterol levels. Raw broccoli still has cholesterol-lowering ability—just not as much.

 

Broccoli has a strong, positive impact on our body's detoxification system, and researchers have recently identified one of the key reasons for this detox benefit. Glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiian, and glucobrassicin are 3 glucosinolate phytonutrients found in a special combination in broccoli. This dynamic trio is able to support all steps in body's detox process, including activation, neutralization, and elimination of unwanted contaminants. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) are the detox-regulating molecules made from broccoli's glucosinolates, and they help control the detox process at a genetic level.

 

Broccoli may help us solve our vitamin D deficiency epidemic. When large supplemental doses of vitamin D are needed to offset deficiency, ample supplies of vitamin K and vitamin A help keep our vitamin D metabolism in balance. Broccoli has an unusually strong combination of both vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and vitamin K. For people faced with the need to rebuild vitamin D stores through vitamin D supplements, broccoli may be an ideal food to include in the diet.

 

Broccoli is a particularly rich source of a flavonoid called kaempferol. Recent research has shown the ability of kaempferol to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body. This kaempferol connection helps to explain the unique anti-inflammatory benefits of broccoli, and it should also open the door to future research on the benefits of broccoli for a hypoallergenic diet.

 

WHFoods Recommendations

Studies have shown that even kids like broccoli and one way to ensure that they enjoy it is to cook it properly by using our Healthy Steaming method. Overcooked broccoli becomes soft and mushy, an indication that it has lost both nutrients and flavor. Begin by cutting broccoli florets into quarters and let sit for several minutes before cooking to enhance its health-promoting benefits. Steam for 5 minutes. See Healthiest Way of Cooking Broccoli below.

 

You'll want to include broccoli as one of the cruciferous vegetables you eat on a regular basis if you want to receive the fantastic health benefits provided by the cruciferous vegetable family. At a minimum, include cruciferous vegetables as part of your diet 2-3 times per week, and make the serving size at least 1-1/2 cups. Even better from a health standpoint, enjoy broccoli and other vegetables from the cruciferous vegetable group 4-5 times per week, and increase your serving size to 2 cups.

Health Benefits

It's no coincidence that more than 300 research studies on broccoli have converged in one unique area of health science—the development of cancer—and its relationship to three metabolic problems in the body. Those three problems are (1) chronic inflammation (2) oxidative stress, and (3) inadequate detoxification. While these types of problems have yet to become part of the public health spotlight, they are essential to understanding broccoli's unique health benefits. Over the past 5 years, research has made it clear that our risk of cancer in several different organ systems is related to the combination of these three problems.

 

The Cancer/Inflammation/Oxidative Stress/Detox Connection

Exposure to potentially toxic substances in our food and water, or in the air we breathe both indoors and outdoors, exposure to allergy-triggering substances, poor general health, dietary deficiencies, use of prescription and over-the-counter medications, and other lifestyle practices can result in a level of danger to our bodies that prompts our inflammatory system to work in overdrive on a 24/7 basis. Researchers often refer to this phenomenon as "chronic inflammation." Often contributing to this level of danger is a weakened detox ability in our body. If our liver, skin, and other organ systems cannot keep up with and detoxify the number of potential toxins that we encounter, too many potential toxins remain at large throughout our body. Once again, the result is a level of risk that prompts chronic inflammation.

 

On a more temporary, short-term basis, inflammation is part of good health. Whether physical or chemical in nature, whenever our body detects a wound, it typically responds by trying to heal with an inflammatory response. That process is healthy, so long as it is not constant and uninterrupted. But unlike the helpful inflammation that takes place we get a simple cut or bruise, chronic inflammation—when it becomes a standard feature of our metabolism—is incompatible with good health. When our bodies are overwhelmed day in and day out with chronic inflammation, many other metabolic balances can get thrown out of kilter, including the balance in our oxygen metabolism. An unwanted imbalance starts to occur in which too many overly reactive, oxygen-containing molecules are formed. This condition is called oxidative stress. The increased presence of these overly reactive molecules can do damage to many parts of our cells, including their genetic material (and especially their deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA). Over time, the constant and cumulative DNA damage inside our cells can pose a major risk factor for conversion of healthy cells into cancerous ones.

 

It's equally possible for this sequence of events to start not with chronic, excessive inflammation, but with chronic oxidative stress. Over time, when overly reactive oxygen-containing molecules cause damage to DNA and other cell structures, our body reads this situation as being highly dangerous and it initiates an inflammatory response to try and reduce the threat posed by the oxidative stress. In either case, we end up with a combination of inadequate detoxification of toxic substances, chronic inflammation and oxidative stress that puts us at greater risk for developing cancer.

 

In a way that might be unique among foods, the nutrients found in broccoli are able to change this set of connections between inflammation, oxidative stress, detox and cancer. In fact, it would be fair to describe broccoli as containing anti-inflammatory nutrients, antioxidant nutrients, detox-support nutrients, and anti-cancer nutrients as well!

7 Best Bone-Building Foods

 

Go Nuts With These Calcium-Rich Eats

By Jill Weisenberger, MS, RD, CDE, LifeScript Nutrition Expert

Published February 19, 2009

 

Women start to lose bone mass in their 30s. But a good diet will lower the risk of a weak skeleton. Here are 7 foods that are great for your main frame. Plus, you can make up for diet deficiencies with supplements, but how much do you know about them? Test yourself with our quiz…


1. Seeds
Think of bone-building minerals and calcium first comes to mind.

Our skeleton is largely made of calcium, but other minerals play a key role too. In fact, 50% of the body’s magnesium resides in our bones.

Low levels are linked to fragile bones and calcium loss, research shows.

All seeds are good magnesium sources, but pumpkin seeds outshine the rest.
Here are a few ways to eat seeds:

Big Pharma Routinely Suppresses Data from Clinical Trials—but FDA Approves These Dangerous Drugs Anyway!

 

January 17, 2012

prescriptiondrugsHelp us persuade Congress to reform the agency with our Action Alert!

Drug research, even from clinical trials sponsored by the federal government, is routinely suppressed, according to a new study in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), an international peer-reviewed medical publication. The study found that less than half of all NIH-funded clinical drug trials were published in a medical journal within two and a half years of the trial’s completion—with fully one-third of trial results remaining unpublished even four years after the trial. Why? Because the drug manufacturers didn’t like the data.

One example cited in the study was the FDA-approved diabetes drug Avandia, which in 2007 was found to increase heart attacks and cardiovascular deaths—even though the drug’s maker, GlaxoSmithKline, had known about the risk before the drug was approved. The BMJ study found that 35 of the drug’s 42 clinical studies had never been published, and were obtained only because a court case required the pharmaceutical company to turn over the data.

Not only does this irresponsible practice harm patients, it also increases healthcare costs. Eugene Carragee, a Stanford University orthopedic surgeon and editor-in-chief of the Spine Journal, spearheaded an unprecedented independent analysis showing that the medical device manufacturer Medtronic—not to mention a circle of orthopedic surgeons who received millions of dollars in royalties from the company—systematically failed to report serious complications with Medtronic’s bone-growth stimulating back surgery device known as Infuse. The results of a crucial clinical trial of the product were not published until nearly five years after the trial had to be halted because unwanted bone was growing around the spines of the trial volunteers.

For two years, Schering-Plough, the maker of the popular cholesterol drug Vytorin, sat on the results of a clinical trial showing that the drug provided no benefit in improving artery health. During that time, the drug was heavily marketed to consumers in TV ads; the marketing was only halted in 2008 after a congressional investigation was launched.

In 2003, a clinical trial of Multaq, a drug that treated cardiac arrhythmias, was stopped because more patients who were getting the drug were dying than those who received a placebo—though the study results weren’t published until five years later. Even so, the drug was approved by the FDA in 2009 as a treatment for atrial fibrillation in certain patients—just not as a means to reduce deaths!

Why does FDA approve drugs whose data have been suppressed by the manufacturer? Is it because FDA depends on Big Pharma for its budget—and needs drug companies to hire former FDA employees. The Wall Street Journal reported that FDA advisers, in a recent vote, said the benefits of four popular Bayer AG birth control pills outweigh the blood clot risk. What the FDA didn’t disclose is that three of the advisers have had ties to Bayer, serving as consultants, speakers, or researchers!

Despite the FDA’s bias in favor of drugs and against supplements, there are tremendous shortages of some drugs (though no shortage of supplements—so far!). This drug shortage prompts some hospitals to engage in price gouging, so a drug that usually costs $26 is being offered for $1,200. Moreover, the FDA artificially inflates drug prices—especially generic drug prices, which should be far lower than they are—as we have reported previously.

The shortage in the US drug market also makes foreign counterfeit drugs more popular. Recently, some 65 million counterfeit pills were seized in China; no word yet on how many of them had already made their way to the US.

If this is the way FDA oversees dangerous drugs, what will happen if we give them the same authority over supplements? It’s not just that the agency doesn’t have the knowledge to properly oversee supplements—they also don’t have the capacity. If they can’t keep up with the hundreds of drugs already under their purview, how will they cope with the thousands of supplements on the market? One way, of course, is for them to drastically reduce the number of supplements that can be marketed—one inevitable result of the NDI draft guidelines that we have been campaigning against.

There must be sincere and honest people working for the US Food and Drug Administration, but it is currently being run in a corrupt and incompetent way. It desperately needs to be reformed. Please help us in our ongoing campaign to overhaul the agency by signing our petition to Congress. As we say in the petition, “Everything about the FDA must be taken apart, reviewed, redefined, and re-created so that it supports, not obstructs, the mission of advancing medical science and vibrant good health for all.” Please take action today!

REGARDING OTHER MATTERS OF HEALTH AND EXERCISE…

 

As always, before starting ANY exercise program and/or diet, check with your doctor and get his approval.  This is all about being safe rather than sorry. 

 

And if you feel you are suffering from depression, do know that there are medications available for you.  Don’t be embarrassed; this malady goes with the RAT RACE.  Therefore, see your doctor, and feel better fast! 

 

Have you started that “Walking” for weight loss and healthy heart routine, yet? There is no excuse for not going it alone, joining with someone, or even forming a group to take that walk at least five (5) times a week and for 40 minutes minimum.  So, stop procrastinating and get started.  Walk to the tune of Scripture or your favorite upbeat music.  And if you prefer the quiet, walk and meditate with the Most High.  Just make sure that you make time for your body and soul.  You’ll see and feel the difference after just two weeks.

THE 52-WEIGHT-LOSS DIET PLAN

 

Recently, I heard on the news that soon people will be spending a dollar out of every five for medical expenses.  But if we are healthy, we don’t have to fall prey to this reckoning.  As we grow older, we gain weight.  I am a witness!  And guess what?  We do not need this extra load we are carrying.  Therefore, I am doing something about it.

 

My friend and I have decided to embark upon a Weight-Loss Plan to lose 52 pounds in one year.  We have started by promising to lose one pound a week.  Thus, we hope to lose 52 pounds by the second week in February 2007.  We have already started, but it’s not too late for YOU to join with us.  So, hop on board and be a NEW HEALTHIER, LIGHTER WEIGHT this time next year!

 

Some of the things we plan to do are:

 

-limit our intake of “white” foods:  rice, bread, potatoes, ice cream, sugar, etc.

-eliminate fast foods and processed foods

-walk at least 3 days a week

-do not eat after 8 P.M. – drink green tea with mint

-eat more fruits and veggies

-bake rather than fry our meats

-drink plenty of water and tea

-weigh in every Tuesday and E-mail the other party the new weight status

 

A weekly journal is kept of weight lost or gained.  And there is no fair or fun cheating. 

 

If you do not need to lose 52 pounds, then adjust the plan to the amount of pounds to lose and time frame appropriate for you.  If you need any help, let me know.

 

The Brothers are welcomed to join in the program.  By all means, do feel free to share your progress.  List your name, the date you started and the weight you lose each week, or if you prefer to only post periodically, then list the date you started and the amount you lost.  If you have any special ways to lose a fast pound here and there, by all means do share.

 

Let’s start having some fun.  The more competition, the more encouraged we will ALL be to stick with this Weight-Loss-Diet Plan. 

 

On my first week, I lost four pounds, and I could feel the difference on my walk as I climbed the hills.  My husband and I both try to walk three days a week for forty-five minutes.  We do about four miles each day.

 

Don’t forget to first check with your doctor!  Better safe than sorry.

 

Now, get started and feel good and look even better!

THE  GREATEST  “SPOIL”  OF  ALL

 

The Israelites received Reparations for their free labor when they left out of Egypt (Exodus 12:35,36, Psalm 105:37).   Note also that Reparations were given to Ezra for the building of GOD’s Temple and for the service of the House of the LORD GOD of Israel (Ezra 7:12 –21).  And it is prophesied that we will again receive compensation for our free labor and bondage in this modern-day Egypt (all the lands that took Israelites captive):

 

“The Lord said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.”   Jeremiah 15:11

EDITORIAL PERSPECTIVE:

 

PONDERING DANIEL FOR GOD’s TRUTH

 

“…the grave cannot praise thee, death cannot celebrate thee:

they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day:

the father to the children shall make known thy truth.”

Isaiah 38:18,19

 

“Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another:

and the LORD hearkened, and heard it,

and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD,

and that thought upon his name.

And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day

when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return,

and discern between the righteous and the wicked,

between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.”

Malachi 3:16 - 18

 

December 2011

 

Quite often I come across Israelites quoting from the Book of Daniel.  And while wondering why, when I find this book so confusing, my thoughts turned to the image Daniel said he had seen in a vision. 

 

I have always claimed that the Book of Daniel raises questions and is not a WORK of the GOD of Israel but of man.  And now, I have even greater reason to believe that this book is nothing more than absolute fraud through and through, and that it is even associated with the “New Testament”.

 

Since the days of Jacob, Israelites have worshipped idols, and since the days of Jacob, the GOD of Israel has warned us scores of times to take heed and obey HIS WORD and to worship ONLY HIM.

 

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

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 

“Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.”   Leviticus 19:1,4

 

“Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger: I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.”   Deuteronomy 4:23 – 28

 

“Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.”   Deuteronomy 11:16,17

 

“Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God. When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.”   Deuteronomy 12:28 – 30

 

“Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them. My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.”   Ezekiel 16:17 – 19

 

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

 

Why was (and still is) Our GOD of Israel so determined to warn us about making false gods/images/idols and serving them?  In that Our GOD has great foresight, wouldn’t HE know that if we built an idol that we would be tempted to worship it – even if it were made by the hands of man? 

 

Consider the fiery serpent GOD had Moses to make and set upon a pole for everyone who had been bitten by “serpents” would look upon it and live. 

 

“And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.”   Numbers 21:5 – 9

 

Years later, if you can believe it, wicked idol-worshipping Israelites burned incense to this image of the fiery serpent.

 

“He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.”   II Kings 18:4

 

Given all that the JEALOUS CREATOR GOD of Israel has said about NOT constructing false gods, not worshipping false gods, and not bowing down to them, would it make any sense at all for HIM to give Daniel a vision about an idol and then have him interpret a dream about it?  Consider how Nebuchadnezzar built an image because of his dream and because of Daniel’s vision, and then think on the WORD of GOD, which speaks against such idolatry.

 

“Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.”   Daniel 2:3 - 33

 

Needless to say that after Daniel interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, this Babylonian King had the nerve to build an Idol to replicate his dream, and then he had people to worship it.  Given all the instances that raise questions in the Book of Daniel, the dream and vision of this image speaks volumes.

 

“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”   Daniel 3:1 – 6

 

It is GOD’s own WORDS that prove this Book of Daniel to be another phony work of man that deceives the very “Elect” just as does the “New Testament”.  Keep in mind the reason for this 70-year captivity and pay close attention to what GOD told the Judahites to do when they entered Babylon.

 

“And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words, Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.”   Jeremiah 25:4 – 11

 

“And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand. Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:”   Jeremiah 27:8,9

 

“I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live. Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon? Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you. For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you. Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD's house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you. Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?”   Jeremiah 27:12 – 17

 

“And Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan sware unto them and to their men, saying, Fear not to serve the Chaldeans: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you.”   Jeremiah 40:9

 

If the GOD of Israel said it would be well with the Israelites in Babylon, then having to worry about being cast into a fiery furnace and into a lion’s den is obviously contrived!

 

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

 

“For therefore he sent unto us in Babylon, saying, This captivity is long: build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.”   Jeremiah 29:4 – 7,28

 

GOD’s WORD speaks of “Peace” in Babylon during the days of their 70-year captivity.  And according to GOD’s true Prophet, the Israelites had nothing to fear in Babylon.  Hence, the Book of Daniel leads us to believe contrary to GOD’s WORD.  Actually, the truth of the matter is that the Judahites loved Babylonian life so much that less than half of them returned to the Land of Israel after their captivity.  If that does not seem feasible, then consider the fact that many Israelites today, who live in the United States, also have no plans to return to our heritage.

 

If we did not have GOD’s WORD, we would have no wisdom and knowledge to discern right from wrong and to know Truth.  I love relying on GOD’s WORD, and the reason is that within HIS WORD are many revelations, and regarding Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s interpretation of it are no exception.  However, the revelation in GOD’s WORD denounces even the mention of an image, and building one is completely out of the question.

 

“And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.”  Exodus 23:13

 

Considering GOD’s WORD concerning how much HE detests the worship of idols and considering how the Judahites are in fact in Babylon serving out a 70-year captivity, it is wisdom to know that the JEALOUS GOD of Israel would not use and image in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and much less HIS Prophet to present an interpretation of it. Just in case people don’t fully understand GOD’s jealousy of idols and images and HIS First Commandment to have no other gods before HIM, then contemplate the following verses:

 

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;”   Exodus 34:14,15

 

“Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.”   Deuteronomy 13:4 – 9

 

In essence, GOD WANTS ALL THE GLORY!  AND IN TRUTH, HE DESERVES IT!

 

“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. I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.”   Hosea 13:4,5

 

So, now, those of you who feel the Book of Daniel is a work of GOD, then explain why the CREATOR GOD of Israel would use an idol to interpret HIS WORD.

 

Just to add to the mysteries and confusion in the Book of Daniel, understand that given what’s written therein, Daniel cannot be called a prophet because nowhere is it written in this book or in any other book that GOD speaks to HIM.  The communication between GOD and Daniel is all assumed and taken for granted.  Knowing and understanding the WORD of GOD, it is imperative we realize that what’s written in the LAW completely destroys this Book of Daniel.

 

MORE ON PONDERING DANIEL FOR GOD’s TRUTH

 

Unlike Daniel’s visions, we know for a fact that Joseph’s were manifest by the GOD of Israel and for good reason even from the time he shared with his father and brothers about their sheaves making obeisance to his sheaf (Genesis 37:7).  Joseph’s vision proved to also have merit, and the reason is that his dream resulted in his release from prison, resulted in his being ruler second to Pharaoh, resulted in his eventual reunion with his father and all his family, and resulted in a place in Goshen, Egypt until the Children of Israel became a Mighty Nation. 

 

Daniel’s visions panned out to be nothing more than a poor copy of the efforts of Joseph (Genesis 40th and 41st Chapters), that turned out to be nothing more than the imaginations of his heart, which is what happens when men (and women) use their own ideals to make up stories.  The wise know that if the ACTS are not of GOD’s HAND, then for sure, the works of man will prove to be deceptive and confusing and lies about the True and Living GOD, just as what has happened in this Book of Daniel.  The writers of Daniel’s escapades had another agenda in mind, but just as we can see through the “New testament”, we can also see through this Book of Daniel.

 

“For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

 

For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.   Jeremiah 29:8 10

 

So, after the 70-year captivity, why didn’t Daniel return, according to GOD’s WORD?

 

“The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me [Moses]; unto him ye shall hearken;”   Deuteronomy 18:15

 

Daniel was not from the midst of the Israelite brethren, and the reason being is that no one knew about Daniel but Daniel.  The ones who should have spoken of him, namely Haggai, Era, and Nehemiah, didn’t, and to their credit, they did not mention Nebuchadnezzar’s idol or these unfounded “seventy weeks” in this Book of Daniel.

 

If Daniel were a prophet, then what purpose did he serve?  As you will see, Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams, the days, and the years calculated throughout this book do not reflect upon obedience and keeping GOD’s LAW or HIS WORD in preparation for Judah’s return after the 70-year captivity.  And for Daniel to be given the name of a false god, Belteshazzar, only makes the Book of Daniel that much more suspect.  If Our GOD of Israel wants us to live HIS LAWS and understand them, HE won’t use heathenish ways to teach us of HIS Walk of Life, and HE certainly won’t use visions of idols.  Now, as much as the GOD of Israel has Commanded against idolatry and detests images and idols, would HE have HIS Prophet, a leader in Israel, flaunt the name of an idol and have us learn something from this book?  

 

“But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my God, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, saying, O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.

 

“Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.”   Daniel 4:8,9,19

 

More importantly, it is really the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah that prove the Book of Daniel to be a complete farce.  Neither Ezra nor Nehemiah make mention of Daniel being involved in the return to Jerusalem, and Daniel makes no mention of it either.  Now, that surely is a mystery to us all.

 

Daniel’s interpretations were far from being a secret. 

 

“That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

 

“But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.”   Daniel 2:18,30

 

The GOD of Israel did not keep secrets from HIS People, and Daniel should have known that HE had already told Jeremiah about Nebuchnezzar and his fall.

 

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.   Isaiah 42:9

 

“And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him. And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.”   Jeremiah 27:6,7

 

“And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.  And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.  For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.”   Jeremiah 25:11 – 14

 

And the fall of the last of Judah and Remnants of the other Tribes of Israel was foretold in other books of the Hebrew Scriptures:

 

“And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia: To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up.”   II Chronicles 36:19 – 23 (Medio-Persia)

 

“And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.”   Jeremiah 25:12

 

“And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters; I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me. And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him. And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.”   Jeremiah 27:4 – 7 (Babylon)

 

“Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment. All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth? All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it. The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.”   Lamentations 2:14 – 17

 

“The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the day of thine anger; thou hast killed, and not pitied. Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the LORD's anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.”   Lamentations 2:21,22

 

“The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.”   Joel 3:6 (Greece)

 

So, for what purpose were all these visions in the Book of Daniel?  His interpretations were neither secret nor a revelation and NOT only privy to him.  And if they were supposed to be secrets, how was Nebuchadnezzar or anyone supposed to benefit from these revelations, then or now even during these latter days, as it is written in this book? 

 

“But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;”   Daniel 2:28

 

So, according to this verse, in Daniel, we are supposed to know what shall be in the latter days.  Okay, what do we know?  What have we learned?

 

“Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power. And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.”   Daniel 8:22 – 27

 

Let’s see, Daniel was “astonished at the vision, but none understood it”.  I guess not.  It made no sense then, and it makes no sense now. 

 

“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.”   Daniel 9:25

 

Is he kidding me?  “Build Jerusalem unto the Messiah”!  Really?!  What Messiah and since when?  The more you delve into this book, the more it starts to sound like the “New Testament”.  I guess whoever was talking to Daniel did not know that the GOD of Israel chose Jerusalem to place HIS Holy Name there and not for any Messiah.  Another real good sign that this Book of Daniel was not written by GOD’s Prophet, but by someone who did not do his homework is that it connects GOD’s Holy City Jerusalem with a Messiah.  In no way does this reflect GOD’s WORD!

 

“But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:

 

“Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:”   Deuteronomy 12:5,6,11

 

“And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always”   Deuteronomy 14:23

 

At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.   Jerusalem 3:17

 

Building Jerusalem has always, ALWAYS been for GOD’s GLORY, which HE will not give to another. 

 

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

 

Are you aware that this man Gabriel only appeared to Daniel and some other folks in the “New Testament”?  Yeah, and the story about him is not noteworthy.  Well, this man Gabriel, supposedly an Angel, appeared to Daniel (8:15 – 27 and 9:20 – 27).  Get this, Gabriel also appeared to announce the births of John the Baptist (Luke 1:8 – 20) and the birth of JC (Luke 1:26 – 38).  How ‘bout them apples?  That, too, kills this Book of Daniel for LawKeepers because they seek to know the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW to follow it!!!

 

Gabriel supposedly came forth to give Daniel skill and understanding.  However, as it stands, to date, the interpretation is confusing.  Not only that, but the problem here is with this man Gabriel telling folks his name -  something GOD’s Angels never did.

 

I would be remiss if I did not add that this man Gabriel deserves the same fate GOD put upon Hananiah:  “Thou makest this people trust in a lie”.

 

“Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie. Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD. So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.”   Jeremiah 28:15 – 17

 

And why shouldn’t Gabriel deserve the same fate?  Look at what he said:

 

“Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”   Daniel 9:21 – 27

 

Seventy (70) Weeks to end sin, huh?  “…two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed” (Daniel 8:14).  (Include Daniel 12:10 – 12 also).  Okay so, when did the counting of these days start?  Was it when the Israelites left Babylon, because it certainly could not have been before?  The Israelites who returned after the 70-year Babylonian Captivity NEVER made an end of sin!  And this business about taking seven (7) weeks to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince just does not fly.  Jerusalem is and will always be GOD’s Holy City!  HE chose it for HIMSELF, and King Solomon built a Temple for HIS Holy Name, so that Israelites and the Stranger will pray towards it to summon the Holy ONE of Israel.

 

“Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name. If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name: Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near; Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,”   I Kings 8:43 – 49

 

“And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:”   I Kings 9:3,4

 

And do note, there was no end of sin, no confirmation of a covenant, and these weeks and days mentioned in Daniel have no meaning, because the GOD of Israel scattered the Israelites from the Land for their abominations and for their sins after coming out of Babylonian Captivity.  Hence, there is neither rhyme nor reason for Daniel or this so-called Messiah the Prince?

 

More concerns that require clarification if any credence is to be given to this Book of Daniel, albeit, it has already been proven to be a work of man:

 

Why wasn’t Daniel joined with Haggai and Zechariah to rebuild the Temple, which GOD made known to HIS Prophet Haggai to do?

 

“Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them. Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.”   Ezra 5:1,2

 

“In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built.

 

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.”   Haggai 1:1,2,7,8

 

“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

 

Here we can find in the Hebrew Scriptures where GOD said to rebuild HIS Temple, but where is HIS WORD or any reference that HE sent Daniel to the kings of Babylon and to the kings of Media-Persia to tell them about their fall?  And where in GOD’s WORD is it written where “Many of them that sleep in the dust of the Earth shall awake” (Daniel 12:2)?  This couldn’t be talking about the “Dry Bones” (Ezekiel 37th Chapter), as these bones are very much alive folks living in Hell who are without knowledge of GOD’s Truth.  Nice try, Daniel, but it doesn’t fit, and you know what that means.

 

In any case, isn’t that straight out of “New Testament” false teachings?  Believe in JC and attain everlasting life (John 3:16).  See also John 5:28 and Acts 24:15.  And those who believe this man-made religion, consider what THUS SAITH THE LORD:

 

“But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.”   Ezekiel 18:4 – 9

 

In the Book of Ezra, we can learn that Artaxerxes the king supported Ezra’s work to return to Jerusalem and to GOD’s LAW for this was the objective at hand.  (In the Book of Nehemiah, we can also learn that Nehemiah, too, was favored by Artaxerxes and was enabled to return to Jerusalem.)  But where was Daniel?

 

“This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which the LORD God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the LORD his God upon him. And there went up some of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king. And he came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king. For upon the first day of the first month began he to go up from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him. For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments. Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel. Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time. I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee. Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven counsellors, to enquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which is in thine hand; And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem, And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem: That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem. And whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God. The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem. And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the king's treasure house. And I, even I Artaxerxes the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily, Unto an hundred talents of silver, and to an hundred measures of wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much. Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons? Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them. And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not. And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.”   Ezra 7:6 – 26

 

But for what reason was this man Daniel so “greatly beloved”, who like to JC came “a voice from heaven” that said, “This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased”?  Why would the GOD of Israel make Daniel HIS “greatly beloved”, and how is it that GOD was supposedly “well pleased” with JC, the “man” who wants the world to worship him?  Neither man did anything of significance.  Daniel did not return to build GOD’s Temple or the Walls of Jerusalem, which is what GOD wanted (Read Haggai).  And JC neither enforced GOD’s LAWS and Judgments nor followed them.  For example, JC let an adulteress go free, and when he should have been observing GOD’s Holy Sabbath, as it is written to stay in our places on the Seventh Day, he and his disciples were not only in the fields, but were plucking corn to eat (Matthew 12:1) when they should have prepared food for GOD’s Holy Sabbath of Complete REST on the Sixth Day and RESTED on the Seventh, as did the Israelites in the Wilderness.

 

The one thing Our GOD of Israel gave us that we should have confidence in doing is wisdom to use HIS LAW to determine the Right and Just thing for us to do, and that is to use GOD’s LAW to ascertain that which is GOD’s WORD and Commandment and that which is NOT.

 

“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

 

The Book of Daniel is riddled with idolatry and confusion, and  being Israelites who know GOD’s LAW and who know of the constancy in GOD’s WORD and in HIS LAW can discern from what is Truth and what is false in this book. 

 

“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

 

Therefore, this Book of Daniel does not have information or revelation of any benefit for us.  If this Daniel were a true Prophet, Our GOD of Israel would have made his revelations just as noteworthy as HE has made the revelations of all HIS True Prophets.

 

The Book of Daniel connects with the “New Testament” in an effort to make both appear to be of THUS SAITH THE LORD.  Nevertheless, it leaves much to be desired and only opens up another ever so confusing can of worms.

 

Finally, I urge everyone to read the Book of Daniel with GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD in mind and with understanding.  We have been deceived for long enough, but Our GOD will open our eyes if we will seek HIM in sincerity for understanding.  Let THUS SAITH THE LORD prove the Book of Daniel to be the work of man, for in no way does it contain GOD’s Truth, HIS WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets, or HIS Book of the Law!  

 

FEAR AND GLORY THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL AND LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

A PRAYER EXTENDED OUT OF KING SOLOMON’S PRAYER FOR ISRAELITES WHO LIVE TODAY AND WHO 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!

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN

THE “HEATHEN” AND THE “DRY BONES”

 

“…the children rebelled against me: they walked not in my statutes,

neither kept my judgments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them;

they polluted my sabbaths: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them,

to accomplish my anger against them in the wilderness.

Nevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and wrought for my name's sake,

that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose sight

I brought them forth. I lifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness,

that I would scatter them among the heathen, and disperse them through the countries; Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes,

and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols.”

Ezekiel 20:21 - 24

 

“And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them,

and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.”

Ezekiel 39:23

 

“The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made:

in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth:

the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.”

Psalm 9:15,16

 

DRY BONES:  My man, what the heck you doing up in that burnt up tree?  With the weather like it is, you won’t last too long up there, as the wind will get you, if the flood doesn’t. 

 

THE HEATHEN:  I don’t have a boat like you, my friend.  It’s thanks to your GOD for these hard times that I now have neither house nor car, and much less a boat.  First, my house burnt to the ground, and now, my car is washed away by this flood. 

 

DRY BONES:  What do you mean by it’s thanks to my GOD for your hard times? 

 

THE HEATHEN:  For you to be GOD’s Chosen, you don’t know too much about HIM and HIS Powers.  Let me explain something to you.  The CREATOR is the ONE responsible for all this havoc and devastation across the nation and the world. 

 

DRY BONES:  What the Hell you talking about?  JC ain’t never done all this to nobody.  He is a God of love, and he ain’t never failed me.

 

THE HEATHEN:  Yeah, that’s what they all say.  You people are so pitiful that your ignorance amazes me.  Look at who you are calling GOD.  Your JC was beat up and nailed to a cross, and you are calling this helpless coward a GOD.  Give me a break.  If you knew anything at all about the CREATOR GOD of the “Old Testament”, you would know that HE would never, ever let any man HE Created overpower HIM.  If HE did that, HE would prove one thing.  HE would prove that HE is not a GOD, just as JC has proved that he is no GOD.  How can you people be so gullible to actually believe that GOD would allow a man that HE Created to be equal to HIM?

 

Just like your GOD Created the Heavens and the Earth, well, we created your Christian doctrines, my friend, with all the idols, images, and statues to boot.  And that cross hanging on your walls and around your necks couldn’t be more pagan.  And believe it or not, there are about sixteen other so-called saviours who were born of a virgin before the invention of JC.  Hey, don’t look so surprised.  That’s just another reason why I really can’t understand why you all can’t figure it all out.  GOD’s WORD, which was written first, is right there with our lies.  All you have to do is look and read carefully, and then you can discern right from wrong simply by giving precedence to GOD’s WORD.  Another thing you should know is that GOD’s LAW is “Perfect” and without flaws.  Under these circumstances, why would HE change it, and how can anything man write be better than GOD’s written Ways of Righteousness?  As GOD Commanded, no one can add to HIS LAW or take from it.  You all need to understand that we changed all GOD’s Ordinances, and you people ate it all up without questioning anything.  But this is something we had to do in order to keep you in the dark and in captivity and fulfill prophecy.  GOD did not call you “Dry Bones” for naught.  You strengthen the hands of evildoers, you follow people to sin, and, you will believe anything.  It’s unreal!

 

JC hasn’t done a thing for you people, and yet you keep believing in him and praying to him and spending your beautiful Sundays stuck in a church for three or four hours listening to crap.   You can be at home with your families and watching baseball and resting up for Monday’s 9 to 5 or other shifts you are compelled to work in this Gentile society.  Another thing, let me tell you something.  This word “Sunday”, the first day of the week, is a pagan name, just like all the other names we gave to the seven days of the week.  Sunday is my day.  GOD’s Day is the Seventh Day of the week, which we call Saturday, and HE made it holy and a “Sign” between HIM and HIS People, Israel.  It’s been like that ever since your people came out of Egypt and inhabited the land of Israel.  The CREATOR has proven to you all a hundredfold that HE loves you, and that HE is your GOD.  But you dumb people preferred to choose your own paths and your own false gods.  So, now look where it’s gotten you - in the hands of the heathen to serve us.

 

Your GOD shows you HIS WORKS, and you completely ignore HIM and them for belief in a fraud.  If JC were all that love and a bag of chips, would he be allowing all these deaths and destruction to happen?  Wake up and see what’s really happening in your lives!

 

DRY BONES:  Where are you getting all this stuff from?

 

THE HEATHEN:  I know for a fact that you all don’t like to read.  First, we prevented your people from reading, and then when we allowed it, you left it up to your preachers to read to you.  And they mostly read what’s in the “New Testament”, the book that we created.  It’s so strange how it never crossed your minds to wonder about all these different Christian religions.  Do your homework, man.  The Catholic and protestant religions, the Baptist and Lutheran religions, to name a few, were all invented by the heathen.  And we made them all appealing just so you all can take your pick.  Not only that, but we also established schools for teaching our religions and how to spread them throughout the world.  Now, we have missionaries and preachers all over the world, and they are spreading our gospel, which has nothing to do with your GOD, or what HE Commanded for a perfect and righteous way of life.  Trust me, you people don’t know beans about the ONE True and Living GOD!

 

Thus, don’t believe the hype about dying and going to GOD’s Heaven, either.  Why would the CREATOR GOD want evil and wicked people up in HIS Heaven to defile it?   You guys kill me believing that your mommas and your poppas all smile down on you from GOD’s Heaven.  Y’all can’t be serious.  You people really should be ashamed of yourselves for believing such nonsense.  The CREATOR never said anything about dying and going to Heaven.  It’s written that the Israelites who died were always gathered unto their (dead) fathers.  

 

Also, nowhere in the “Old Testament” is it written where GOD sent HIS Prophets to learn how to do HIS WORK, i.e., to learn how to prophesy.  GOD simply called only upon men of Israelite pedigree, mind you, and HE made them HIS Prophets, period, and out of fear of HIM, they did as HE Commanded.  And I’ll bet you did not know that only Israelites can be GOD’s Ministers, Prophets, and Kings of Israel and, more importantly, teachers of Israelites (Deuteronomy 18:15-18,20-22).

 

DRY BONES:  Well, you’ve made it plain enough, but why didn’t you all teach GOD’s WORD instead of your own, since you know so much about GOD and fearing HIM to do HIS Will?

 

THE HEATHEN:  Why would we teach you GOD’s WORD?  As long as you people are in darkness and without GOD’s Truth, it would be impossible to know what it takes to turn to HIM.  As long as we have you calling upon JC, excuse the expression, you are barking up the wrong tree.  Thus, you cannot call upon the True GOD to deliver you out of our hands.  And anyway, we needed you to build cities and make us the wealthiest people in the world.  Can you imagine what free labor did for us?  Actually, you can’t.  But because of the Slave Trade, we became the richest people in the world.  Nevertheless, by your forebears defying your GOD of Israel, you brought all this captivity upon yourselves. 

 

DRY BONES:  You keep saying stuff that doesn’t make any sense.  Why would we bring all this suffering upon ourselves?

 

THE HEATHEN:  You all are really the epitome of ignorance.  I can’t believe that you have not been curious enough to seek GOD’s WORD, and that you cannot see GOD’s HAND in all that has happened to you.  Slavery, for one, should be an extreme eye opener.  Literally, Blacks all over the world are the underdogs and have no control over this world.  When GOD put you all in our hands, HE meant for you all to suffer untold afflictions, which you have.  We are the powers-that-be, and we dictate which nations will be prosperous and which ones we will exploit and will cause to fail.  You don’t see the Rulers of this world looking to JC for our welfare because we know this saviour is sheer fabrication.  We have the bomb and military might.  These are our gods and our defenders. The peoples of the Caribbean nations and Central America and Africa are the poorest in the world.  We didn’t make these peoples Third-World nations for naught.  These peoples were kept uneducated and in squalor, so that they don’t rise up to compete with us.  Don’t be stupid all your life.  Our powers did not come by chance, and believe me, we White folks are not that smart!  We had help in getting atop this world, and it was all because you all were too dumb to obey your CREATOR GOD that did everything for you and only wanted in return for you to make HIM your GOD and live by HIS Laws of Righteousness.  But these were not your desires.  Notwithstanding, we learned the game, and we played it well up until now.

 

DRY BONES:  But again, I ask you, how did we, Blacks, bring all this upon ourselves?  And what do you mean that we cannot call upon our GOD?  We believe in JC and in GOD.  They are One and the same!

 

THE HEATHEN:  I’m telling you the GOD’s Truth, and you still don’t understand.  Okay, let me spell it all out to you.  Surely you have heard of the Children of Israel in the “Old Testament”.  Well, they are GOD’s Chosen People.  HE chose them above all the nations of the Earth to be HIS special people and HE ALONE their GOD.  Whether you believe this or not, it really doesn’t matter, but this is the Truth.  We know this, and this is one of the main reasons we wrote the “New Testament”, which is to convert all peoples to belief in a man – this man, JC, who is nothing but the figment of our imaginations.  He does not exist, and he is no more the son of God and savior than I am.  Actually, he is the biggest joke going, and we have two billion people worshipping this man for real.  And your GOD let us get away with it all because you all forsook HIM.  At the time of the Greeks, we realized that if the True GOD had a Chosen People, that we needed to have a God that would make us feel special, too, and of course he must be a God of love.  Whah lah, we invented JC and a religion to make people believe in him and believe that he is a God of love to counter your “Old Testament” GOD that did not tolerate evil and wickedness and that punished people for their sins.  And man o man, did it ever work!

 

DRY BONES:  You keep saying that this CREATOR GOD is my GOD, and if so, why would HE let you get away with making up a false religion and putting my people in Slavery?

 

THE HEATHEN:  Pay attention, man!  THINK for once in your life.  Think about what I am telling you, and try to look at the whole picture.  Listen; your people are GOD’s Chosen, but HE cursed you all into our hands because you would not live according to HIS Ways of Righteousness.  GOD delivered you out of Egypt, fought your enemies, and gave you the Land of Canaan and the surrounding lands.  HE told your forefathers that if they didn’t live and do HIS Book of the Law that HE would scatter them into the four corners of the Earth to serve their enemies.  Your forefathers were good and stupid.  They did not listen, and hence, your people got put into our hands for punishment.  Because of all your abominations against your GOD, HE even caused your name, i.e., the name of Israel to cease among men, enabling Gentiles to take your name and your land.  The nations around the world don’t know that you all are the true descendants of the Children of Israel.  None of this is a secret, and that’s what I can’t understand.  All I am telling you is in the “Old Testament” – the Slave Trade and even what you people need to do to really be saved out of this captivity.  And you should know that you folks delude yourselves when you believe that JC has saved you.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  You are in our hands, and we control you.  See?  And you are in our lands following our systems and worshipping our gods, all because of your rebellion against your GOD. 

 

Another thing.  There is but ONE GOD, my friend.  HE is a “Jealous GOD” by HIS own admission.  So, please, wake up and smell the coffee.  The First Commandment makes that perfectly clear, and if you have another god before HIM, you have to understand that you are committing one of the worst abominations man can commit against the True CREATOR.  Moreover, the CREATOR GOD said, HE is ”a just God and a saviour; there is none beside me."  And, "Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any."   He also said, "Thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:".  So, JC cannot be GOD!  Get it?  Secondly, the GOD of the “Old Testament” never gave HIS People, the Children of Israel any reason to believe in JC.  The GOD of Israel never mentioned JC or introduced him to the Israelite nation, or used him for any purpose.  IF there were any truth to JC, GOD could have used him to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, but HE used Moses.  And ironically in the very last book of the “Old Testament” - Malachi - the CREATOR GOD says to “Remember ye the law of Moses my servant,” and “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet…” – NOT JC.  Hey, it’s in there.  You don’t have to take my word for it.  Go read it for yourself. 

 

DRY BONES:  You seem to know what you are talking about, so what might we do to be saved out of this captivity?

 

THE HEATHEN:  Turn to your GOD, HELLO!  Only HE can help you.  HE caused all this tribulation because of your sins against HIM.  Your people forsook HIM and HIS Paths of Righteousness, and being here in our land, you have paid the consequences, as well as fulfilled Biblical prophecy.  Oh yeah, stay out of the “New Testament”.  That is my book, and it cannot serve any purpose for you – not any whatsoever.  Anyway, it, too, will be destroyed.

 

DRY BONES:  If what you say is true, then why are you telling me all this?  GOD will take your power from over us if we return to HIM.  That much I do understand.

 

THE HEATHEN:  I am not stupid.  I know what I am up against, and I know when my time is up.  All the turmoil taking place upon this Earth:  the wars, Earthquakes, fires, floods, unrest, sadness, and despair among the powers-that-be is taking its toll on us.  This is of chief embarrassment to us right now.  I can’t believe how idiotic the US government officials are behaving.  They must feel that the end is near, as well, and are doing what they think will prolong their days in power.  But I know better.  My friend, you would be wise to understand that it is obvious that your GOD is listening to HIS People who are pouring out their hearts to HIM for deliverance.  And you would be wise to follow their lead.

 

DRY BONES:  Well, where are they?

 

THE HEATHEN:  Are you kidding me?  They are all over the Internet.  They are all about returning to the CREATOR GOD and keeping HIS LAW, which is what your forefathers should have done when they inhabited the Land in the first place.

 

DRY BONES:  We might be in a Flood, but for me, this has been a good day.  You have given me a lot to think about.  By the way, would you like to come down from that tree?  I can row you to wherever you’d like to go.  That’s the least I can do for all that you have told me about my GOD and my people.

 

THE HEATHEN:  Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that all Blacks are not Israelites. However, the CREATOR GOD knows who is of the SEED of Jacob and who isn’t, no matter the circumstances, if you know what I mean.  And your GOD calls HIMSELF the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and it is ONLY to HIM that you people should pray.  Just so you will know, GOD changed Jacob’s name to Israel, and he had twelve sons who make up the Children of Israel. 

 

DRY BONES:  You may as well explain that, too.  What do you mean?

 

THE HEATHEN:  Look you have to do some serious reading of GOD’s WORD for yourself and learn about HIS interaction with HIS People, the Twelve Tribes of Jacob. And do realize that you cannot find “Thus Saith the LORD” at all in the “New Testament” because none of the “New Testament” writers were prophets.  Makes sense, right?  However, it is found in thousands of places in the “Old Testament”. As you read, you will be better informed.  In addition to reading the books wherein is written the WORD of GOD, research the people who now occupy and control GOD’s Land.

 

DRY BONES:  You mean the Palestinians?

 

THE HEATHEN:  They occupy GOD’s Land, too, but they have not usurped the name of GOD’s Chosen People, as have the Israelis, who also have to pay consequences for this deception.  You see, they have also played a big part in keeping GOD’s Chosen/Covenant People in darkness with their Talmudic teachings that are contrived by so-called Rabbis straight out of European ideology, which so happens to be far removed from GOD’s Book of the Law - the first five books of the “Old Testament”.  Also, they are Europeans and the Mother of all Slavers.  They did their homework and took your identity and even changed GOD’s Ordinances to make sure that you be deceived if you convert to their religion.  My friend, you didn’t have a chance in Hell to make it or be accepted in this world – not even if you called yourself Doo-doo, a common nickname for David.

 

DRY BONES:  WOW, I do have a lot to learn.

 

THE HEATHEN:  You’ve got that right!  And it behooves you to start with Leviticus 26th, and Deuteronomy 4th and 28th Chapters, Deuteronomy 30:1 – 5, King Solomon’s Prayer in I Kings 8th Chapter, and Isaiah 11:11,12, for these passages will give you understanding and hope for a real change in the lives of your people.  After you read them, you will know for sure what the CREATOR GOD requires of all of you.

 

DRY BONES:  Tell me something.  By being so helpful, what do you hope to gain for all this information you have shared with me?

 

THE HEATHEN:  I am sitting up here in this burnt up tree thinking hard about turning to your GOD, and that, too, is prophesied, so what better time than now for me to fulfill GOD’s WORD?  Plus I need to do some serious soul searching.  The atrocities we have committed against Black and Hispanic humanity are unconscionable, and we are now learning daily that these acts against this country and the world are not Mother Nature, but are the HAND of GOD against the heathen for all the evils we have done to HIS People.  GOD is also against all people who continue to defy HIM.  We will all pay, and we will pay dearly for all our horrific acts we have committed, exactly as GOD’s Prophet has said.  Now I know for sure that all nations that took GOD’s People into captivity will be destroyed.  That destruction has already begun.  There’s no question that the plagues and wonders GOD brought down upon Egypt will pale in comparison to what is prophesied for the countries that have taken HIS people into captivity.   It is time for us to let you people go to serve your GOD and with restitution and, yes, compensation for all your pain and suffering and free labor.  And maybe, just maybe by telling you the GOD’s Truth, the CREATOR GOD might have mercy on me.  For now, I will do what’s in my power to return you all to your rightful place, as that, too, is also written for us to do.

 

DRY BONES:  Sounds like a plan.  So do you want a ride or not?

 

THE HEATHEN:  I’ll be all right.  You just find your place in your GOD’s Plan, so that HE will take back HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land, HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and HIS Chosen ones and establish HIS Peace upon this Earth before we be all dead men.  As Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “Let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?”  Listen to the different ones on the talk shows, and you will hear this all the time.  The US is finished, and its people can see the writing on the wall, as it is written in the Book of Daniel.  Oh, by the way, the Book of Daniel is as fraudulent as is the “New Testament”, but the essence behind writing on the wall rings true.  The CREATOR GOD’s Angels never told the Israelites their names because they are secret.  But the “New Testament” and the Book of Daniel profess to know them.  Yeah, right!  And nothing in the Book of Daniel rings true.  The GOD of Israel told the Israelites to build houses, take wives, make babies, and seek the peace of Babylon.  Of a truth, the Israelites had so much fun in Babylon and were so prosperous, that they refused to return to their homeland after their seventy-year captivity.  The Book of Daniel tells a totally different story.  Israelites thrown in the lion’s den and in a fiery furnace.  Where the heck did Daniel get that from?  He got it from us.  We made that up, too.

 

DRY BONES:  You have made me more curious about the Bible than I have ever been before in my life, and now I am going to do some serious research to seek my GOD and yes, pray that HE will reveal HIMSELF to be the ONE True GOD and put HIS Ways of Righteousness before me, so that I will find grace with HIM just as Noah did.  See, I do know a little about the “Old Testament”. 

 

THE HEATHEN:  Yes, you do, but that is not enough, and you only have a short while to learn it all.  So go in peace and pray to your GOD of Israel, and forget about JC!

 

DRY BONES:  JC?  Who is that?

“Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”   Deuteronomy 4:2

 

“When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger: I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 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 4:25 - 31

 

“For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods, And walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made. And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city. And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree: And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger: For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing. Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God. And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them. And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.”   II Kings 17:7 – 16

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.”   II Kings 17:36 – 39

 

“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

 

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.   Isaiah 55:5,6

 

“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

 

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;  But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.”   Jeremiah 23:7,8

 

“The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.”   Jeremiah 30:1 – 4

 

“For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.”   Jeremiah 30:11

 

“For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.”   Jeremiah 30:8,9

 

“I said unto their children in the wilderness, Walk ye not in the statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols: I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.”   Ezekiel 20:18 – 20

 

“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.”   Hosea 5:15

 

“Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden. Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.”   Zephaniah 3:14 – 20

 

“For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.”   Malachi 1:11

 

“Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:”   Malachi 4:4,5

Ezekiel 37th Chapter

 

AND THE HEATHEN SHALL KNOW

THAT I THE LORD DO SANCTIFY ISRAEL

 

“The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

 

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

 

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

 

Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

 

The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

 

And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

 

And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

 

My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 

And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”

 

HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH!!!

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:

 

THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

 

I can’t call this race for the US presidency interesting, but it most certainly is noteworthy.  I have watched one republican debate after another – not all but a good many of them.  I have seen these White men fight like dogs, and when they realize they can’t cut the mustard, they drop out and then endorse one of the candidates they talked about like a dog.  Go figure!  If I were voting, I wouldn’t vote for any one of them.

 

During this campaign, I have listened attentively for word that would give so-called African-Americans a reason to hope and vote.  Not only have I found none, but these racist bigots act as if African-Americans are not relevant in this voting process.  But I do have to admit that the lone female former presidential candidate, Michelle Bachmann, did say that “African Americans were better off slaves”.  She dropped out, and that’s good for the Blacks who love this country.  So that’s one bigot down and at least 200 million more to go. 

 

However, there is another candidate gaining momentum in this race for president who doesn’t like to mention the words African-American, either, but he does make reference to them.  Newt Gingrich is a shrewd operator, but White folks are listening to him.  More than a decade ago he said that the children whose parents are on welfare should be in orphanages.  While running his campaign, Newt Gingrich proposed that broom-pushing students should replace janitors.  Now, you know he was not talking about White students!  And he is up in the polls, if you can believe it.  Who needs people like these to rule over a country?  They all speak of GOD with their mouths, but their hearts are far from HIM.  Each one of these presidential characters would be funny if the Black dilemma in this country weren’t so pitiful, which all stems directly from presidential leaderships that have sustained the racist status quo.  I wonder if President Obama understands that by not making mention of his support of African-Americans that he, too, has extended his hand to suppress Blacks.

 

As you might know, President Obama is campaigning unopposed by another democrat.  Some say he hasn’t a chance because he failed to produce his promises for positive changes in his first term as president.  And some say he can still win a second term.  Personally, I have my doubts, but if the Holy ONE puts HIM in office again, I just hope it is to make Black folks realize that we have to look to Our CREATOR GOD of Israel – not to Obama and not to any man – not even to JC! 

 

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

 

Moreover, why would Israelites, of all people, want to reside in this Godforsaken country and be subject to political and social systems that leave nothing to be desired for Black peoples?  There is nothing for us in this “America the Beautiful” with its ethnocentric White culture that makes life Hell for Blacks and other people of color.

 

“Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. 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 81:8 - 10

 

President Obama said he wakes up every morning pondering how everybody can have access to the American Dream.  With all his education and experience in these United States and work in this government, he still cannot understand that there will never be an American Dream for Blacks in this country.  President Obama is not the first president Blacks have voted for.  Blacks have looked to vote in every election since decades ago, and John F. Kennedy and to Bill Clinton – remember them, were two men who looked like they would finally do something of significance for Blacks.  JFK could talk a good game, and Billy Boy just cooked the books to make it look like he was a White man in place to help Black folks.  He did such a good job that Blacks called him the first (White) Black President.   And then came a real brilliant Black President who is what’s been called a “lame duck” because he can’t get Congress to work with him.  Never mind that…after four more years, if Obama is re-elected, what then?  Same ol’ same ol’, and the beat will continue unaltered.

 

Wake up, “Dry Bones” and Israelites who depend on presidential campaigns to better the Black plight in this country.  Wake up, for we have to seek for more than what descendants of Slave Masters have to offer us, which is literally nothing.   Some Blacks cleave to Christianity, in vain nonetheless, while Israelites cleave to this White man’s customs and ways.  Needless to say, the GOD of Israel is not happy with HIS People’s objective to seek haven in the country that subjected us to the worst religion and most horrendous enslavement in the annals of history.

 

We have no choice but to seek after the CREATOR GOD that brought all this suffering and affliction down upon us.  Our dilemma stems from our forefathers’ disobedience and rejection of HIS LAW.  And our SALVATION and REDEMPTION lies in our return to Our GOD of Israel in Truth.  Why is it we cannot ALL give credence to this fact?

 

“…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

 

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

I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.

And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers.

And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.

And ye shall know that I am the LORD when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.”   Ezekiel 20:40 – 44

 

I know well that Israelites endorse and support President Obama for a second term.  I also know well that even if he is re-elected that his second term will be just fruitless as his first.  Israelites need GOD’s HELP that is long term and that can last FOREVER!  Obama’s term can only last for eight years, if that, and then where will the captive Israelites be?  Let us not forget that Our GOD of Israel knows those who trust in HIM.

 

“For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, LORD, art become their God.”   II Samuel 7:24

 

“But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”   Isaiah 41:8 - 14

 

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.”   Nahum 1:7

 

Hence, our hearts have got to be directed to seek after the ONLY HELP that exists for us – Our GOD of Israel - and fulfill HIS WORD, for HE is the ONLY ONE able to DELIVER us out of the hands of our enemies and out of this captivity.

The LORD’s Side

 

If you know anything at all about what GOD’s Prophet Moses said about The LORD’s Side, then by all means find it and prepare a place for yourselves thereby. 

 

Let the CREATOR GOD of Israel call attention to HIMSELF with HIS awesome SIGNS and WONDERS, otherwise how will the peoples of this world learn HIS Truth and learn to FEAR and WORSHIP ONLY HIM?

Knowing GOD’s WORD is EVERYTHING

 

People can’t figure out what the heck is going on in the Middle East, in particular the ongoing conflicts and turbulence between the Israelis and the Palestinian, which actually has nothing to do with it.  Again, one needs to be aware of the Hebrew Scriptures for this understanding.  Few people know that the “Old Testament” contains prophecy that is yet to be fulfilled.  Mainly that the CREATOR GOD will take back control of HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land, HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and HIS Covenant People, the SEED of Jacob, which means that the Europeans who control GOD’s Holy Land are in serious jeopardy.  And for that reason, Israelis are shaking in their boots because they know that their mighty fighter jets, acquired with US monies, and their missiles are useless up against the Most High CREATOR GOD.  The Israelis made it their business to know the Hebrew Scriptures a long time ago.  This was necessary because any time one usurps the identity of another, one must learn everything there is to know about that person if the deception is to be effective. 

 

The United States and Israelis have to learn that the ALL-MIGHTY CREATOR GOD of Israel still lives, and HE is not JC.

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!

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.)

 

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

 

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

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

A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE “KOY”

 

TAKE DILIGENT HEED…

 

“…take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law,

which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments,

and to cleave unto him,

and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Joshua 22:5

June 19, 2006

 

What exactly does the GOD of Israel mean when HE Commands us to take diligent heed to do HIS Commandments and HIS LAW? 

 

IN THAT…

 

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”   Deuteronomy 30:19,20

 

AND…

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 32:46,47

 

I would think that to take diligent heed means to be extremely cautious to keep GOD’s LAW, read and study it, DO IT, and pray to the GOD of Israel for wisdom to understand it.  And in addition to that common sense would be to either join with others so determined or be alone in returning back to the Holy ONE and what’s required of the SEED of Jacob.

 

This might seem ever so trivial a detail to some, but it means a world to the GOD of Israel.  You see, I used to belong to Ben Ammi’s group, and I left for many reasons, but mainly because he was allowing people to call him JC and “Saviour” and because he was not concerned about GOD’s LAW and much less about taking heed to live and do it. 

 

What truly, truly disturbs me is that there are people encouraging Israelites to join up with Ben Ammi and accept his title – “Messianic Leader,” as well as the blasphemous notion that the True and Living GOD would have such a congregation to represent HIM.  Yes, of course the so-called “KOY” exists, but it does not represent the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, i.e., HIS Ways of Righteousness that HE Commanded of the Prophet Moses to teach to the Nation of Israel.  This group does not in any way signify the Kingdom of YAH, and indeed it cannot in any way portray GOD’s Righteous Kingdom. 

 

The “KOY” is a congregation of people calling themselves Israelites and living according to the Laws of Ben Ammi and the imaginations of his contrary and devious heart.  The wise in the knowledge of Truth know that Ben Ammi’s camp, built on corruption, crime, lust, adultery, and death, cannot in any way be connected with the Holy ONE of Israel’s Divine and Righteous Kingdom or cannot be established to receive the Remnant GOD said would return. 

 

“The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.”   Jeremiah 23:20 – 22

 

“My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.”   Jeremiah 50:6

 

Moreover, King David’s Seed will head the CREATOR GOD’s Righteous Kingdom that will exist upon this Earth, and he will know to be the perfect role model for living GOD’s LAW in Righteousness. 

 

I have never read where Kings David and Solomon called themselves “Messiah.”

 

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.”   Isaiah 11:1 – 5

 

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.”   Isaiah 11:10

 

And this Righteous Kingdom will be all about serving, worshipping, and PRAISING the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and about representing HIM and spreading HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments throughout this world, in order that the CREATOR GOD of Israel will be Magnified and will receive all the Praise and all the Glory, so that people will abandon the “New Testament” and its theology.  Have no doubts about it, the son of David will rule from Jerusalem and the GOD of Heaven and Earth will rule over all (Psalm 103:19). 

 

I find nothing in GOD’s WORD to support an existence of HIS Kingdom in Israel under the control of Gentile Jews.  Ben Ammi has deceived hundreds into believing this lie that he is the Messianic leader of GOD’s Kingdom.  How long are we going to follow leaders who use GOD’s Holy Name in vain?! 

 

Taking heed to keep GOD’s LAW would entail staying as far from Ben Ammi as possible.  And the fact that HE keeps his stores open on GOD’s Holy Day of Complete REST is a darn good red flag and eye-opener that shouts to stay away from this leader, as of a Truth, he does not FEAR the GOD of Israel to do HIS Will.  And what better information exists from Our GOD to prove Ben Ammi to be one who defies the All-Mighty GOD!

 

“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”   Isaiah 8:20

 

This passage is the best gauge Israelites have for determining and for understanding who to accept as a genuine leader or know who FEARS the Holy ONE of Israel.  If Ben Ammi and the people of his camp defy the Most High GOD of Israel, then why join with them, and why take part in their beliefs unfounded in GOD’s LAW and in their disobedience?

 

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”   Psalm 1:1,2

 

“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”   Psalm 26:5

 

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”   Psalm 66:18

 

“Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.”   Psalm 141:4

 

“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.”   Isaiah 1:2 - 4

 

Another perfect incident that serves to explain why we cannot join with people who break GOD’s LAW concerns Jehoshaphat and Ahziah.  And does it ever speak VOLUMES!

 

“And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.”   II Chronicles 20:35 – 37

 

Let’s not pretend we don’t know about our past and how our stiffnecked and rebellious forebears loved to be connected with evildoers and how they encouraged the lawful to follow wickedness.  At least admit to what THUS SAITH THE LORD!

 

At this late day and in the time of Jacob’s Trouble, why would we even consider joining with Ben Ammi or with anyone or with any congregation that does not make GOD’s LAW the Paths of Righteousness to follow and walk?  Our GOD of Israel promises us that if we return to HIM and HIS LAW, that then we can return to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-4).  If people will join with Ben Ammi, then for them GOD’s Promise is made void.

 

“And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.”   Ezekiel 11:12

 

“Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.”   Jeremiah 30:15

 

“And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:”  Jeremiah 32:22,23

 

What a crime!  Ben Ammi was among the blessed to return, but just like his rebellious forefathers, he, too, refuses to be obedient to the LAWS of the GOD of Israel.

 

The WORD of the GOD of Israel also condemns Ben Ammi for calling himself a “Messianic Leader” in order to gather Israelites and Christians into his fold.  But in no way does he emulate the “Old Testament” men of GOD!

 

Was Moses, Joshua, Samuel, the kings of Israel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, or any of the other Prophets who promoted GOD’s Book of the Law and who spoke “THUS SAITH THE LORD” called a Messiah?  Do we need this?  Is this something required of us to have before us?

 

I listened to a Brother in Paltalk Chat go to extremes to contrive a justifiable explanation for Ben Ammi calling himself a Messiah.  The Truth of the matter is that this word is not even connected with Hebrew-Israelite Culture.  “Jews” and Christians and the Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” are very much associated with the word “Messiah,” but not the Israelites who wandered forty years in the Wilderness and inhabited the Land of Israel.  And if Moses was NOT given this C.E. terminology to introduce to the Children of Israel, then there is no reason for us to know about it at all.  There isn’t even ANY information in this Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament” that is essential for Israelites to know and do – none at all.  All that the GOD of Israel required of us to know and do was given to HIS Servant Moses and is reiterated in the books of HIS Prophets who utter “THUS SAITH THE LORD.”  There is no “THUS SIAITH THE LORD” in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.”  Both of these books were written AFTER GOD scattered HIS Chosen People, Israel, from the land.  That being the case, this literature is suspect, and proof of this is the fact that the Israelites were scattered to live in “Darkness” and to serve their enemies.  So, why would the Holy ONE give them any information about seventy weeks or seventy years or seventy anything? 

 

And even if this information is for a time after the Israelites return, the information still makes no sense.  “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…” (Daniel 9:27).  This verse contradicts what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” about HIS Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31 – 34 and in Ezekiel 20:37.  And not one of GOD’s Prophets makes mention of this event in the Book of Daniel. 

 

Just for the record, “THUS SAITH THE LORD” is mentioned more than 400 times in the “Old Testament” but not even once in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.”  That’s no mistake.  That’s for us to think logically and connect the dots!  Therefore, when we do the research concerning the year the Book of Daniel was probably written, we will see that this Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” were written to deceive Israelites, and, thus, we have no reason to accept the information in either of these books as being GOD’s WORD. 

 

GOD’s Covenants – HIS LAW and HIS Promises, as well as the “New Covenant” spoken of in Jeremiah 31:31-34 - will resume upon our return to our heritage.  And there is no other WORD of GOD to have us believe that any one of these Covenants will be one week.  Actually, when you consider what’s written in Daniel 9:27, none of this chapter makes any sense whatsoever.

 

“He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:”   Psalm 105:8 – 10

 

“Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.”   Psalm 106:44,45

 

The Holy ONE of Israel has not only remembered HIS Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but HE has opened our eyes to the fact that WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, but unfortunately, too many of us do not choose to do that which is necessary to stay in HIS good graces.

 

Another serious issue is that certain people credit Ben Ammi with moving Israelites to Liberia and then on to Israel.  The GOD of Israel did not say that Ben Ammi would deliver HIS People.  HE said that HE would, and when HE does, for sure HE wants all the GLORY, every whit!  HE got all the GLORY in the Israelite Deliverance out of Egypt, and HE, unequivocally, will be Exalted AGAIN upon the return of the Remnant of Israel that GOD promises HE WILL GATHER.  To suggest or even think for a moment that Ben Ammi deserves recognition for that which is due to the Holy ONE of Israel leads me to believe that some of us, being Israelites, have truly lost sight of what’s important to know and understand.  It would appear that the Holy ONE is again proving Israelites to determine who will and who will not enter into HIS Glorious Kingdom.

 

And just because people think Ben Ammi to be prosperous and have more than other congregations is no reason to boast about the advancements he has made.  When I hear this, I am constantly reminded of the “green bay tree” in Psalms.

 

“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.”   Psalm 37:1 – 3

 

“I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.”   Psalm 37:35 - 37

 

“They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:”   Psalm 49:6,7

 

“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”   Psalm 127:1

 

It would appear that people don’t yet get the full understanding of the above verse that is loaded with Truth, conviction, and certainty.  Time proves everything!  The Flood of Noah’s Day and the scattering of the Nation of Israel into the Four Corners of the Earth are proven facts that the CREATOR GOD of Israel does not tolerate people taking HIS Name in vain, disobedience of HIS LAW, and the worship of false gods and even of man.

 

Ben Ammi is not “perfect.”  He, himself, said in 1996 that he is doing 60%.  Thus, he isn’t even close to being “the perfect man.”  He is failing and falling fast!  His works and teachings speak volumes.  We have history to probe for what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” and for what required of us.  AND we have read what has happened to Israelites who stray from GOD’s LAW in order to establish their own direction.  We have book after book in the “Old Testament” that gives us all the information we need concerning rebellious Israelites.  We know what the GOD of Israel did to them, and we know that HE has not changed HIS Ordinances one iota, and that HE will NEVER change them.  Hence, knowing all this, and knowing what the GOD of Moses has said about HIS LAW and the consequences for not keeping it (in Deuteronomy 28th Chapter), knowing that HE will MAGNIFY HIS LAW and put it in our hearts, knowing that we were scattered for not observing this Divine LAW, would Our GOD of Israel send such a leader as Ben Ammi who has no regard for HIS LAW but rather for magnifying himself and a bogus “KOY”?  Perfect men of GOD do not grandstand and promote adverse teachings.  They vehemently stress doing the WORD of the GOD of Israel and with “ONE” mindset. 

 

Without question, “the perfect man” FEARS the GOD of Israel to live and do HIS Book of the Law.  It is accepting GOD’s Righteousness and to live by it that is our ticket into the CREATOR GOD of Israel’s Peaceful Kingdom.  It is not Ben Ammi’s veggie and no-salt diets.  Ben Ammi is not concerned about GOD’s LAW, and neither is the GOD of Israel in his thoughts.  This “KOY” in Dimona is really nothing more than the Kingdom of Ben Ammi, and he is no more the “Saviour” that he is called than is the jc of the “New Testament.”  Ben Ammi and the other leaders in his Camp know exactly how to run their game, and those who they beguile either know nothing of the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, or they have chosen to forget the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW and listen to and believe in a man whose foundation is built on lies, corruption, and death.  Therefore, I caution everyone to be very cautious of what is believed, and the reason is that if we CHOOSE to believe in wickedness, then GOD will help to encourage that false belief.

 

“Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.”  

Jeremiah 6:19

 

“Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.”   Hosea 8:11

 

What wills Israelites to turn from the WORD of GOD?  What force is there that can make GOD’s Chosen People defy HIM?  Never mind.  I don’t think I want to know.  In any case, those who join with Ben Ammi should know that you give up your assets and you are expected to conform to the expectations of the Camp, and you will adhere to WILL adhere to their ways or be punished by beatings and losing your flamboyant “title.”  What a scam, the best since the advent of Christianity.  However, only the Holy ONE will prove them a fraud and with the Righteous Remnant HE is calling – HIS Chosen Ones who have determined to serve and worship ONLY HIM.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”   Joel 2:32

 

“For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”   Psalm 10:3,4

 

“My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.”   Psalm 34:2,3

 

“In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.”   Psalm 44:8

 

Is this a time for us to boast?  Ben Ammi is subject to the will of Gentile Jews.  Why is he boasting, and why are others boasting for him?  Is this not a time to turn to the Most High GOD of Israel and boast of HIM and seek HIM for understanding IN HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets?  Should we not thirst and hunger for GOD’s Truth?

 

“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”   Deuteronomy 8:3

 

Ezekiel speaks about the Holy ONE of Israel gathering us and taking us into a SECOND WILDERNESS.  If Ben Ammi, or anyone for that matter, does not observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST, as it is written, will he not be purged, as the GOD of Israel has said?  Can it really be that the CREATOR GOD of the Heavens and the Earth will allow Ben Ammi and his Camp to fast on HIS Holy Day and have his restaurants open defying HIS Commandment?  Come on, People!  Who is fooling whom?

 

“And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.”   Ezekiel 20:34 – 38

 

Ironically, from this passage, Ben Ammi will not enter into the very Kingdom he boasts. 

 

“And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.”   Numbers 16:26

 

“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”   Psalm 26:5

 

Surely, we know about Israelites who speak of the Holy ONE of Israel with their lips but have hearts far from HIM.  This is the case with all Israel who acknowledge the Holy ONE of Israel but DO NOT live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.

 

“Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.”   Isaiah 59:2

 

Some of us might think it is all right to join with congregations that defy GOD’s LAW, but this is wholly against doing what Thus Saith the LORD.  The Holy ONE of Israel is not impressed with the direction some of us have taken.  First of all, we do not need leaders.  Our Merciful GOD has brought us out of darkness in revealing to us our true identity and has made us know that we are more than just descendants of Slaves. HE did this because of HIS Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and because we are HIS Chosen People.  Wake up, Israel!  We need Our GOD, the Holy ONE of Israel.  We can call upon HIM for direction, wisdom, and understanding.  That’s why HE is Our GOD.  HE does not tell us to call upon HIM for naught.  HE did not say trust not in a friend for naught.  HE did not say that those who follow after evil leaders will be destroyed for naught (Isaiah 9:16).  Our GOD has always wanted to be the center of our lives and of our world.  And if we are obedient and will devote our lives to HIM, HE will be our LEADER, and for choosing HIM, we will not thirst or want for any good thing.  And at the designated time, HE promises to send us HIS Pastors.  But until then, trust in ONLY Our GOD of Israel and see HIS miraculous WORKS for those HE loves!

 

People have come forward with information on Ben Ammi, and the Brother promoting the so-called “Keys to the Kingdom” is aware of this.  I have also posted information on Ben Ammi and his camp to the LawKeepers Forum.  And if people will still join with him, after learning about this useless kingdom, then they certainly have no one but themselves to blame for whatever might befall them.   More importantly, those who will read this Message and will still seek to join and be associated with the Ben Ammi Camp can’t say they didn’t know and certainly won’t be able to plead ignorance.  They can’t say their leaders are at fault.  They can’t say they believed in a Brother whom they thought knew what he was talking about with some “Keys to the Kingdom.”  And the reason they cannot feign all these excuses is because all GOD’s warnings and counsel are written in HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets. “TAKE DILIGENT HEED…” Also, HE provides knowledge to those who earnestly seek it.  The Holy ONE of Israel is a Most Merciful GOD and SAVIOR and has covered ALL bases, and HE has left out nothing of significance for us to know and do.  Our GOD of Israel has even left us with HIS WORD and good reason why we should not trust in man.

 

“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:”   Psalm 146:3 - 6

 

“Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.”   Micah 7:5

 

I feel like this:  If I am going to fall by the wayside, it will not be because of following some stiffnecked, grandstanding, rebellious Israelite leaders.  In that respect, I have learned what not to do very well and mainly from watching lawless Israelites in Ben Ammi’s Camp and listening to him speak the imaginations of his heart.

 

The Dry Bones have a chance to live and serve and worship the Holy ONE of Israel, but only if we will return to HIM (not to Ben Ammi) to FEAR ONLY HIM and be obedient to the Ways of the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  It has been more than 2,500 years since we lost our heritage.  And the only way we will return to it is by looking to our SAVIOR, Our ONLY HELP. 

 

With Ben Ammi there is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD Our GOD to help us if we will only let HIM.  But we must take diligent heed to follow HIS Paths of Righteousness.  May Our Holy ONE of Israel bless the man courageous enough to speak HIS Truth and stand up for HIS LAW, the ONLY True Path of Righteousness.

 

“Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.”   Psalm 33:18 – 21

 

“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.”   Psalm 60:11,12

 

“Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”   Psalm 124:8

 

Wake up, Israel.  It is a fact that Ben Ammi does not live by GOD’s LAW.  This we know!  And since he doesn’t, the so-called KOY, under the leadership of Ben Ammi is just another Messianic congregation in deep trouble with the GOD of Israel.  As for me, I shall serve the Most High GOD of Israel and strive to be perfect in HIS LAW.  And all those who FEAR the GOD of Israel will do likewise.  Going home in no way entails joining Ben Ammi’s congregation, and if this is what you believe, then you are greatly deceived. 

 

“In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.”   Jeremiah 50:4

 

“O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?”  

Micah 2:7

 

“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, and we will walk in his paths: for THE LAW SHALL GO FORTH OF ZION, AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM.”   Micah 4:2  (Caps. are mine.)

 

WAKE UP, ISRAEL!  Our GOD is calling us, and HE is being very selective.  HE is only taking Israelites who will vow themselves to HIM and to HIS LAW.  For that reason, there will only be a “Remnant” to make it to GOD’s Kingdom – only a Remnant.

 

“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.”   Psalm 4:3 - 5 

 

So, be aware, and TAKE DILIGENT HEED.  This is our last shot to be returned to our heritage. 

 

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.”   Ezekiel 18:20 - 24

 

Thus, it is most critical that GOD FEARING Israelites discern right from wrong and denounce defiance and disobedience to GOD’s LAW.  

 

“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”   Psalm 103:17,18

 

And at the same time we must embrace wisdom and knowledge and abide by it.  Don’t waste precious time on a NOTORIOUS leader who has no respect for the “SIGN” of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST that binds us with Our GOD of Israel.  The last thing Israelites who seek the GOD of Israel need is to hear a philosophy inconsistent with that of GOD’s Book of the Law.

 

What a shame to have people’s stomachs growling from their hunger pains and incessantly thinking of what they will eat when the Sabbath is ended, rather than thinking about the Mercies of the SAVIOR GOD of Israel and giving Glory to HIM for giving us a Blessed Day of REST.  How do I know all this?  I’ve been there and done that!  What a shame to have people not enjoying food on GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath and their giving in to blessed slumber and rest on full stomachs.  WHAT A SHAME!  Ben Ammi forgets that this Seventh Day is the CREATOR’s Anniversary, and it is HE that has COMMANDED, how HE wants it observed.  To his hurt, Ben Ammi does not see it that way.

 

Those who decline from GOD’s Ways of Righteousness can expect to literally go mad and die.  This is GOD’s WORD – not mine!  Ben Ammi initially taught GOD’s LAW and as far as I knew abided by it.  Actually, this was the reason I joined “Abeta Israel,” the Israelite congregation in which he was a member.  But he allowed a former Christian preacher who joined his group to entice him to be the “Messiah” and “Saviour” of the Nation of Israel.  By the way, his congregation does for sure call him “Lord and Saviour.”  I have heard a woman make reference to him as being that, and Asiel, the so-called “KOY” Ambassador confirms that Ben Ammi saved him.  He made this statement in the Paltalk Chat a few months ago.  For this reason, Ben Ammi has gone, not just mad but, stark raving mad.  I feel it is important to inform you that the woman (Rachel) who called Ben Ammi “Lord and Saviour” is now deceased.  And just for the record, the man who is supposed to have “anointed” Ben Ammi is dead and has been dead for a long time, now. 

 

ISRAEL DOES NOT KNOW!

 

“The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.”   Psalm 104:21

 

Why can’t we just seek Our GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE requires of us?  After all, HIS Book of the Law and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets are our Bread of Life.

 

“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;”   Isaiah 44:24,25

 

King David Feared and loved the GOD of Israel with all his heart and soul, and we have him as evidence that we, also, can indeed be people after GOD’s own heart.  Notice his Psalm 101:

 

“I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.”

 

I question the motives of those who promote Ben Ammi’s so-called “KOY” and disseminate information leading people to believe that he is a Messiah.  Ben Ammi’s works judge him to be nothing more than a Lawbreaker who is steadfastly working against the WORD of the GOD of Israel, and who is relentlessly expounding on his books, his diets, his authority, his being a Messiah, and his “Kingdom of Ben Ammi.” 

 

Wake up, Israel, and take diligent heed to the LAW and WORD of the GOD of Israel before it is too late.  Our GOD is taking back HIS Universe, and I PRAISE HIM, for I hate this world system that enables people to live as they choose rather than live by “every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD…” (Deuteronomy 8:3). 

 

“I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.”  

Psalm 104:33 – 35

 

“Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting…”   Psalm 106:47

 

“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”   Psalm 5:12

 

WHO IS ON THE LORD’s SIDE, make haste to return to HIM and to HIS Book of the Law and to live and do it in Righteousness with your whole heart and soul!

 

BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS TOWARDS THOSE WHO SEEK HIM AND WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW!

 

Me and My GOD with me,

REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD IN REGARD TO

HIS SEVENTH DAY SABBATH COMMANDMENT!

 

REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS ANNIVERSARY DAY OF REST,

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

HIM AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!

 

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

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

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

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:

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

Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

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

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

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

Exodus 16:29

 

“…this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways

that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels

and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

Jeremiah 7:23,24

 

“And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel;

Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,

Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth

out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice,

and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:”

Jeremiah 11:3,4

 

As most of you know, I am a firm believer in living GOD’s Book of the Law, and that I strongly stress observance of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath that HE proclaimed a “SIGN” between HIM and HIS Chosen People, Israel.  To strengthen the great significance of GOD’s Hallowed Seventh Day, HE used this Day of REST to prove HIS People, the Israelites, to see if they would walk in HIS LAW, or no (Exodus 16:4).

 

It didn’t take GOD long to find out that HIS Chosen People HE had JUST DELIVERED out of Egyptian bondage by HIS Mighty Hand before their very eyes, did not FEAR HIM to be OBEDIENT to HIS COMMANDMENT of the Holy Seventh Day of Rest.  The Holy ONE of Israel made no comment when the Israelites left the Manna “til the morning and it bred worms and stank.”  But, it was Moses who “was wroth with them.”  However, when some of the Children of Israel went out on the Seventh Day Sabbath to gather Manna, this, without a doubt, deeply upset the Holy ONE of Israel.

 

“And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none. And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?”   Exodus 16:27,28

 

The Israelites had failed their test!  It is obvious that the Holy ONE DID NOT want the Israelites leaving their places on HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST (Shabbatone in Hebrew).  And for some of us, if this is not understood, then Exodus 16:29 makes GOD’s COMMANDMENT perfectly clear without a shadow of a doubt.

 

“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” 

 

The questions now become, Is the Holy ONE of Israel still proving us to see if we “will walk in HIS LAW, or no?”  Is HE still using HIS Holy Sabbath Day as an indicator, and are we at liberty to violate GOD’s COMMANDMENT “to abide every man in his place on the Seventh Day”?  Also, can we be expected to return to our heritage if we do violate this COMMANDMENT?

 

“Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.”   Ezekiel 22:26

 

Perhaps at this point, I should make readers aware of the basis for this particular post.

 

Before the recent “KenesiYAH Conference” in Jackson, Tennessee held on November 12 – 14, a notice was circulated stating, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe!!”

 

Because the Conference called for activities on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Complete REST, I knew that most of the attendees, if not all, would be leaving their places (homes and hotel rooms) on the Seventh Day, November 13, to take part in whatever was being offered on GOD’s Holy Day.  In my heart, I was immediately critical of this Conference for going against GOD’s COMMANDMENT to abide in our places on the Seventh Day of Rest.  Also, knowing fully well that the GOD of Israel is against bearing burdens on HIS Holy Sabbath Day, I thought to challenge the promoter for circulating that “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of the Universe” - words that were clearly construed to draw a crowd but displeased YIHOVAH.  And I wasn’t at all in agreement with charging a fee to attend the Conference, either. 

 

However, I, for some reason, changed my mind about contacting the promoter.  And in the interim, I learned that the Conference was a success and people had really gotten something out of this gathering.  Then I thought to myself how wonderful it is for Israelites to Glory and PRAISE the Holy ONE and rejoice in revering ONLY HIM.  I also thought that the GOD of Israel might have been truly pleased with the Conference and that perhaps HE had changed the WAY HE wants us to observe HIS Holy Seventh Day of REST.  I told myself that perhaps we CAN indeed gather and teach on this Hallowed Day.  Although I had these thoughts, I didn’t seek the Holy ONE for clarification on the matter.    And I left it at that without considering putting this notion of gathering on the Sabbath to the test and without further thoughts about the issue until this past Friday, November 19, just a few days after the Conference ended when the Holy ONE of Israel gave me clarification on the matter. 

 

On this Friday, while going about my daily readings, the Holy ONE showed me that we must keep HIS LAW, as it is written or face the consequences.  And no matter how zealous and passionate we are about our concerns to worship Our GOD of Israel, and no matter how jubilant and how much Praise and admiration we bestow upon HIM in a Conference, in a parade, or in the privacy of our homes, we have got to remain bound and TRUE to HIS LAWS – ALL OF THEM - to remember to do and observe them, as HE has COMMANDED, for this Divine LAW IS OUR LIFE and is to be kept (as it is written) FOREVER!

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 32:46,47

 

“Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.”   Deuteronomy 11:1

 

“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.”   Deuteronomy 12:1

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.”   II Kings 17:36,37

 

The passage the Holy ONE showed me in Scripture that caused me to recall the November 12 – 13 KenesiYAH Conference and the activities held on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest entailed the relocation of GOD’s Ark.  I did not search for this passage.  This passage was brought to me…ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE!

 

“And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.”   I Chronicles 13:8

 

Without a doubt, King David and ALL Israel played before GOD WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT with SINGING, HARPS, PSALTERIES, TIMBRELS, CYMBOLS, and TRUMPETS.  For sure the Israelites made a great tumultuous noise in sincere PRAISE of the Most High GOD of Israel.  And indeed HE was taking notice!

 

I remember many years ago reading this passage for the very first time thinking about how wonderful it was for Israel to Praise GOD and how pleased HE must have been seeing HIS People Exalting HIM with such joyfulness and fervor.  But at that time, as I continued reading the chapter, something happened in the passage that I’m sure has caused Israelites and the Stranger alike to wonder why this GOD of Israel would so severely punish a man, during this moment of exultation and joy of HIM, for putting forth his hand to steady HIS Ark.  I read on with great sorrow for Uzza, seeking a valid reason for his death.

 

“And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.”   I Chronicles 13:9,10

 

The valid reason was and still is KEEP GOD’s LAWS for HE will not forgo punishment if we don’t.  For me, this passage was a tremendous wakeup call that made me realize that no matter what…we, Israelites, must take heed to obey all GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, as they are written.  And when in doubt, rather than assume the wrong decision, err on the side of caution, i.e., err on the side of what's written.   Then we can always say, "We followed the Commandment that is written in GOD's Book of the Law!

 

The Conference of November 12 – 14, I’m sure was well organized with the Holy ONE in mind to draw as many people as possible and to make as much money as possible.  But given GOD’s LAW of the Holy Sabbath Day to “abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the Seventh Day,” has GOD given HIS consent and endorsed leaving our places, driving cars, teaching, and holding a Sabbath Service on this Seventh Day of Complete REST?  Now, since reading the passage about Uzza, I know for sure, the Holy ONE of Israel has not changed HIS LAW of the Sabbath.  It is yet valid, and we are bound to it, as well as to ALL of GOD’s LAWS.  And like Nehemiah, I remind everyone of how our forefathers profaned GOD’s Holy Day of REST even after having just returned to the land out of Babylonian captivity.

 

“Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.”  

Nehemiah 13:18

 

If we are specifically advised to keep GOD’s Sabbath or be punished with death, that our servants, oxen, asses, and cattle are also supposed to rest, as well, and COMMANDED NOT to bear burdens on the Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then we have no business scheduling activities on this Holy Shabbatone (Sabbath of Complete REST Day).  If the Holy ONE wanted us assembling on HIS Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then HE would not have COMMANDED us to abide in our places on this Day of REST!!!  Surely that makes a lot of sense, right?  

 

“But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”   Exodus 20:10,11

 

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”   Exodus 31:13 - 15

 

“Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.”   Deuteronomy 5:13,14

 

“And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.”  

Nehemiah 13:19

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers. But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction. And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein; Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.”   Jeremiah 17:21 – 25

 

“But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.”   Jeremiah 17:27

 

Although there is nothing written above about picking up sticks on the Holy Sabbath Day of REST, GOD condemned a man to death for this act (Numbers 15:32-35).  Doesn’t this sentence of death expound upon the great importance of observing this Holy Day, as it is written and not according to what we feel is acceptable?  Of course it does!  GOD is as serious as a heart attack about our KEEPING HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST and about JUDGING us if we profane it.  Other than picking up sticks on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST, what else might we do to cause Our GOD of Israel to be angry and “smite” or condemn us to death as HE did with Uzza and the man who was found picking up sticks on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath?  What about CARRYING all the books, charts, video equipment, teaching aids, and other paraphernalia we need for instruction and for the operation of the Conference?  Who are we fooling?  All of us are aware of what it entails to organize and hold a Conference.  It takes a lot of WORK, as well as a lot of energy to sustain each day’s agenda, and I am only making reference to the activities that are scheduled on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath. 

 

What about the hot meals served at the hotels or at the meeting place on the Holy Seventh Day when we are COMMANDED to prepare on the Sixth Day the food to be eaten on the Seventh Day of REST?  What about burdening someone to bear even sandwiches and beverages to drink if food is served at the meeting place?  What about getting from the hotel to the meeting place?  What about driving or being driven to the meeting place?  Think about all the work that transpires on a three-day Conference that includes GOD’s Holy Day of COMPLETE REST. 

 

And when we involve ourselves in all these transactions, we say, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe.”  I don’t think so!  As a matter of fact, I know what “Thus Saith the LORD,” and I know better!  According to HIS WORD, HE is not pleased and no more pleased with us than HE was with Uzza, King David, and the others.  I also know that Our GOD is not pleased with our charging a fee to hear HIS WORD. 

 

“The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.”   Micah 3:11

 

I see nothing wrong with Israelites devising ways to raise money, but given the above verse, we should keep GOD’s Ways out of such plans, i.e., don’t make money off of the WORD of GOD.  By all means, create jobs, have dances, parties, sell dinners, plan spring, summer, and winter attractions, and keep them above suspicion, but don’t include a fee if at all GOD’s WORD is involved.  Let us be about following GOD’s Counsel and not that of our own.  And I can’t stress enough that it does not entail charging and paying money to hear HIS Truth.  When our hearts are right, Our GOD prospers our way.  When our hearts are NOT right, there is no peace to the wicked. 

 

When GOD did not pardon what Uzza did while King David and the Israelites were rejoicing before the Holy ONE giving HIM Praise and Glory, then what imaginations of our hearts think we can be pardoned for breaking GOD’s Law of the Seventh Day when HE distinctly COMMANDED us to “ABIDE YE EVERY MAN IN HIS PLACE, LET NO MAN GO OUT OF HIS PLACE ON THE SEVENTH DAY”?  Is this not a COMMANDMENT?  If you agree that it is, then how can we justify leaving our places on this Holy Seventh Day of REST to participate in any kind of service - Conference, Unity Shabbot or other function?  We have more than enough time to schedule get-togethers and have spiritual assemblies.  None of these gatherings should be scheduled for the Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST.  And regardless of what different Messianic leaders or Prophets or Levites might say to justify it, there is NO Scripture to support such meetings on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day.  The Children of Israel did not gather or assemble on the Seventh Day in the Wilderness, and they are dead wrong to do so now!  The GOD of Israel does not change, and HE is not going to change HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day that dates back to the end of HIS CREATION.   The Law of the Seventh Day Sabbath is to REST and keep the day “Holy.”

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

“Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments: And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:”   Nehemiah 9:13,14

 

GOD’s Holy Seventh Day is an anniversary in remembrance of the Six Days it took HIM to CREATE the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein.  Therefore, regardless of how much we invest in this day being of spiritual significance in Conferences or other affairs to show forth HIS Praise, we are so wrong to do so.  And it’s simply because Our GOD wants us in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath.  By the way, if the Conference is on a weekend, there is nothing wrong with staying in our hotel rooms when the Sabbath begins and until it’s over. 

 

After GOD COMMANDED us to abide in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day, as we know, a man thought it was all right to gather sticks.  Today many Israelites feel it’s quite all right to drive cars and use other means of transportation to ASSEMBLE and give Praise and Thanksgiving to Our GOD on HIS Holy Seventh Day, but when we do, we are ever so wrong.  Actually, we are dead wrong!

 

GOD’s LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets speak volumes, and unless GOD stipulated changes, there are no exceptions to HIS Ordinances.   Throughout the “Old Testament,” we find that GOD sent HIS Prophets and instructed them to rise up early to go to the Israelites to urge them to return back to the LAW that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses.  I only reiterate that which has already been COMMANDED of us.  And we can either accept GOD’s LAWS or contrive justification to circumvent them.  If we are in agreement to accept GOD’s LAWS, then we cannot dismiss the LAW to abide in our places on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST.  It’s just that simple.  Throughout GOD’s WORD, we learn that we must follow GOD’s LAW or face repercussions.

 

“But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 30:14 - 16

 

“Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.”  Jeremiah 11:8

 

Let us not forget that OBEDIENCE to GOD’s LAW should be our highest priority IF it is our intention to return back to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-3 and I Samuel 15:19). 

 

“Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:  And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”  

Exodus 19:4 – 6

 

“But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”   Deuteronomy 4:29 – 31

 

“And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.”   Deuteronomy 27:9,10

 

“If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.”   Deuteronomy 28:58 – 61

 

“And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day. And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.”   Deuteronomy 30:8 – 10

 

“Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.”   Isaiah 42:23,24

 

Thus, I urge everyone to consider ALL GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, especially in regard to holding Conferences, teaching, and doing any other activities on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST since we are supposed to abide in our places on this Holy Seventh Day.  NO ONE is in favor of coming together to sing and give Praise to the Holy ONE of Israel, Our GOD and SAVIOR, more than myself – NO ONE!  But I would make arrangements for such an occasion to be held on any day but GOD’s Seventh Day of REST!  And we have six other days from which to choose for assembling and gathering for Spiritual Reunions. 

 

Enough of seeking the imaginations of our hearts and devising new means and ways to divine and worship Our GOD of Israel.   The GOD of Israel has already established how HE wants us to serve and worship HIM:  according to HIS LAW and with our whole heart and soul and in Righteousness.   Therefore, seek GOD’s Counsel and abide by HIS Ways that HE left written for us to follow.  If revelations and the imaginations of our hearts that we embark upon are not in accord with Isaiah 8:20, then these teachings, persuasions, endeavors, events, and doings are not encouraged by Our GOD of Israel. 

 

“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”  Isaiah 8:20

 

We must not ever forget that although we are GOD’s Chosen People, “LIFE” is not about the Children of Israel.  The ideal “LIFE” (style) is about keeping GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments and, in doing so, enjoying peace, happiness, and prosperity in our heritage with Our GOD in our midst!  This “LIFE,” per se, is the panacea, the Divine Utopia that all peoples upon this Earth should seek for keeping GOD’s Ways of Righteousness and serving and worshipping HIM is with great rewards.

 

Like many of us, I seek to return to our heritage, and it will only happen when we decide to be OBEDIENT to GOD’s LAWS that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses for us to live and do.  So eager we are to be accepted, recognized, and joined with others, but is this what matters?  We must be extremely cautious in all that we do.  Praise is comely only for the upright.  We can have a thousand with us, but if the Holy ONE of Israel is not with us, then, let’s face it, we are lost! 

 

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:

the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

and in keeping of them there is great reward.”

Psalm 19:7 - 11

 

FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH AND HONOR AND KEEP ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, LAWS, STATUTES, AND JUDGMENTS!

AN UPDATED SPECIAL NOTE ON GOD's HOLY SEVENTH DAY OF COMPLETE REST!

 

I can understand how we would have questions about certain passages, and the reason is that not every single thing written in the Hebrews Scriptures is crystal clear.  I have found that over the decades, some revelations have actually taken that long before I could come to a full understanding of what's written.  Also, we must understand that the Holy ONE does not give us all that we should learn at one sitting and not even in one year.  It truly takes time to internalize all the facts and Truths of the LAW and GOD's WORD and the enlightenment behind them.  For that reason, we must continuously read the TORAH and GOD's WORD to HIS Prophets on a yearly basis.

 

However, given some passages that are crystal clear, I cannot understand how some of us can read into what's written that which is not there.  I bring into issue GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST (called a Shabbatone in Hebrew) that we are Commanded to observe in order that we, our animals, and our servants will be refreshed. 

 

"Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed."   Exodus 23:12

 

Just the above verse is enough to make us understand what Complete REST is all about.  But no, it really isn't.  One would think we would be ecstatic to have a day off recognizing the Glorious "Sign" between Our GOD of Israel and the Children of Israel, doing nothing but sleeping and sitting on our behinds Praising the GOD of Israel with THANKS for not having to work – some literally like a slave.  Unfortunately, Israelites want to use this day for just about any and everything but for Complete REST.  And if the above Scripture is not enough we have others that are even more precise and to the point and without confusion:

 

"See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day."   Exodus 16:29

 

"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed."   Exodus 31:12 - 17

 

Some Israelites honestly believe that the Sabbath Day of Complete REST doesn't start until in the morning, i.e., from morning until evening – disregarding the fact that the CREATOR started each new 24-hour day in the evening (Genesis First Chapter) which gave us our foundation for determining each day of the week. 

 

As I have pointed out Isaiah 30:29, makes mention of "the night when a holy solemnity is kept".  That verse also tells us that Holy Days are kept in the night.  But then there are other Scriptures, as well:

 

"I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons."   Psalm 16:7

 

"Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."   Psalm 19:2

 

"At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments."   Psalm 119:62

 

If the Holy Sabbath of Complete REST is not observed at night, then what about all other activities that occur at night?  Or do we just pick and choose which ones to observe at night?  What about the sacrifice that is left to burn into the night?  Do GOD's Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, Ordinances, revelations, and dreams bestowed upon us cease to have credibility in the night season?   Hopefully, now when we think about it, starting Holy Days from morning to evening makes no sense at all.  However, it does make sense that GOD's Ways and Ordinances DO NOT cease in the night season.  All HIS Ways must be observed AT THEIR APPOINTED TIMES, and even in the night.

 

My hope is that all of us will seek a better understanding of GOD's Truth regarding HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day Sabbath because those who profane it are subject to death, as Exodus indicates.

 

I have had several debates on the topic of when and how we should observe GOD's Seventh Day Sabbath.  The when:  Friday sunset to Saturday sundown.  The how:  In your places, wherever that might be and without holding classes, traveling, picnicking, cooking, spending money, and fulfilling pleasures – in essence, keeping this day "Holy" and at "REST".

 

Recently, I had a debate on the Sabbath that was about "holy convocation".  It seems many Israelites seem to believe that although the GOD of Israel Commanded Complete REST for us and our animals that given what's written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter makes it all right to have an assembly of worship on the Sabbath Day. 

 

"Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings."   Leviticus 23:3

 

Some people do not take into consideration that, ONE, we are Commanded to abide in our places, and TWO, we are also Commanded to REST.  They seem to think that "holy convocation" means to gather, just like church folk do on Sunday, and hold Sabbath Service.  They could not be more wrong!  It is impossible to enjoy Complete REST while in travel and while teaching.

 

"Holy convocation" does not and cannot mean to assemble.  My proof positive is found in the Book of Exodus, where the GOD of Israel tells the Israelites to observe the First Day of Passover:

 

"And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save thatwhich every man must eat, that only may be done of you."   Exodus 12:16

 

The key point here is that on the First Day of Passover, the Children of Israel were Commanded to stay in their "households" and consume their lamb or goat. 

 

"Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:"   Exodus 12:3

 

"Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover."   Exodus 12:21

 

"In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof."   Exodus 12:49

 

Hence, the Children of Israel were not Commanded to assemble, and "holy convocation" could not mean to assemble for Passover.  And by the same token, Israelites cannot use "holy convocation" as reason to hold a Sabbath Service.

 

Why are we still like our forefathers, that is being Hell bent on deviating from what's written and leaving us to our own confusion?  Check the Hebrew Scriptures.  Of all the Holy Days mentioned, the two that remarkably head the list are GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, which is, by the way, a "Sign" between HIM and the Children of Israel, and HIS Awesome Passover – both for HIS GLORY and HIS Holy Name's Sake.  The Holy ONE of Israel has made the Sabbath "Sign" for HIMSELF for being the All-Mighty CREATOR GOD and for establishing CREATION in the BEGINNING all by HIMSELF.  HE has established the Passover Memorial for HIS Great and Holy Name's Sake that all the world will remember it FOREVER because of HIS Powerful Hand that brought our forefathers out of Ancient Egyptian bondage!  Therefore, not under any circumstances can we err by profaning these Holy Days, or any other Holy Day for that matter. And we should always strive to observe them with utmost sincerity and heart, exactly as they are written in the LAW.

 

 Remember, Our GOD of Israel formed us for HIS Praise.  Thus, when we demonstrate HIS Ways of Righteousness and observe HIS Feast Days that then we do HIM Justice and encourage others to follow our lead.  For that reason, GOD's Commandments for keeping HIS Holy Days are not encrypted and need no interpretation.  It only must be in our hearts to do what's written.

 

"If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it."   Deuteronomy 30:10 - 16

 

At some point, it has got to be in our hearts to FEAR the Holy ONE of Israel to follow HIS written LAW, and until it is in our hearts to do so, we are not ready to fulfill Deuteronomy 30th Chapter.  And worse, at GOD's set time when HE will recover the Remnant of Israel exiled throughout the world, not all of us will be among that number.

 

"And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live."   Deuteronomy 30:1 – 6

 

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.  The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness."   Isaiah 10:20 – 22

 

"Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there."   Isaiah 65:8,9

 

After leaving out of Ancient Egypt and forty years in the Wilderness, the Children of Israel walked into the Land of Israel as a Nation.  This time the "he goats" will be first to arrive and prepare the way for the Nation of Israel, as each arrives.  But where are they?  And where are Israelites who will fulfill the Second Great Exodus that Our GOD of Israel will bring to fruition?

 

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."   Isaiah 11:11,12

 

"…behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land."   Jeremiah 23:7,8

 

According to these passages the CREATOR GOD confirms exactly what HIS Plan entails - ONLY A REMNANT will be recovered!

 

Those of us who desire to be in that number, let us come together to make a pact to follow the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, as they are written with fasting and prayer, so that Our GOD of Israel will hear us and Deliver us speedily into the Wilderness where we will be encouraged in HIS Ways of Righteousness.

IT IS IN VAIN TO SEEK PROSPERITY AND RELIEF IN THIS CAPTIVITY!

 

Our afflictions result from the curses Our GOD put upon us, and nothing we do will alleviate this misery in America.  And sooner than later, we will all come to know this truth.  The death, sickness, suffering, and despair among us is too great for us to bear.  Thus, it is incumbent upon us to get Our GOD’s attention to hear our supplications and change the times, in order that we will return to HIM and to our heritage and live according to HIS Ways of Righteousness.  No one lives for the True and Living GOD.  No one is in Jerusalem professing HIS Holy Name and Exalting HIM.  And no one is making the sacrifices and offerings HE loves.  IF things are to change, then we must start the process.  After all, we were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise BUT in the land where HE has ordained Israelites to serve HIM (Ezekiel 20:40,41), and the United States has nothing to do with it!  In America, Our GOD won’t let us forget that we were exiled to serve our enemies in their lands for our great sins against Our Loving GOD that gave us everything and more than that.  When will we wake up to realize the power of our actions.  Our love for our GOD and HIS LAW got us in the land flowing with milk and honey, and our transgressions against HIM got us enslaved under ruthless Gentiles.  BUT if we use our energies to live according to GOD’s Book of the Law and appeal to ONLY HIM for Deliverance, rather than succumb to life in Gentile lands, then we can expect, through GOD’s Blessings, a dramatic change in our lives.

 

“HIS Hand is stretched out still,” and it’s up to us to determine our destiny.  The “Dry Bones” CAN live but only if they will turn to the Holy ONE of Israel and live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.

 

“Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people,

and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them:

and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them

from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:”

Isaiah 5:25,26

 

“Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is

written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside

therefrom to the right hand or to the left;

 

“That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you;

neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:

 

“But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.”

Joshua 23:6 - 8

 

“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”

Exodus 15:26

O LORD GOD of Israel,

 

Spare the Elders of Israel.  Open their eyes, Father, and cause them to fear you to do your Will.  Have Mercy, O LORD GOD of Israel and cause the world to know your TRUTH.  FORGIVE, Father of Abraham and remember your Covenant with Jacob and your Promises to the Children of Israel.  Remember your Holy City Jerusalem and remember King Solomon’s Prayer for you to hear us when we pray toward your Holy City.  Save us, Father, for ONLY YOU have that power.  SAVE us as you saved our forefathers out of Egypt by your Awesome SUPREMACY and MIGHT.  Don’t leave us to waste away in the lands of our captivity. 

 

In your own words, LORD GOD of Israel, “Let us reason together.”  We need you, LORD GOD, like we’ve never needed you before.  Make haste, Dear Father of Israel,  Save the SEED of Jacob and let us LIVE FOR YOU in Righteousness.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD

IS MERCIFUL AND GOOD!

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

 

TAKE BACK your Holy Land

YOU PROMISED it to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

AND to the SEED of the Children of Israel!

 

TAKE BACK your Holy City, Jerusalem

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

"O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary. We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name."   Isaiah 63:17-19

 

LORD GOD of Abraham, be with those of us who have the desires to return to your Lawful Ways, Your Book of the Law, that you gave to your Prophet Moses and give us the courage, wisdom, and power to be re-established in your Holy Name.  Let us show the world that YOU, the Most High GOD, the CREATOR, the Holy ONE of Israel are still in control of this Universe.  Give us a steadfast heart and determination to be True only to YOU and not to falter or waiver from your desires for the Remnant you have called to return, so that YOU may perform your promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Establish that “GREAT NATION” YOU told Moses about, FATHER,  –  the Israelites who will be totally devoted to YOU, your Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, and who will establish your Holy Kingdom in Truth and in Righteousness.

 

LORD GOD of Abraham, re-establish your Holy Temple, so that all peoples may come to worship before you and learn about your Ways of Righteousness and your Merciful Kindness towards all peoples who seek to know your Truth.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL IS JUST AND GOOD!

 

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!

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,

which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:

and his rest shall be glorious.

 

“And it shall come to pass in that day,

that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time

to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria,

and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam,

and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”

and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land

that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.”

Jeremiah 3:17,18

 

IF WE SINCERELY WANT TO BE A RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE, THEN

ALREADY DECLARED PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

“I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.

“At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you:  for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth,

when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.”

A RENEWED MESSAGE TO ALL MESSIANICS:

 

 GOD’S TRUTH EXPLODES BRILLIANTLY

 

For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:  

Exodus 34:14

 

March 2011

 

In that JC did not save the Slaves out of Africa and has not saved the descendants of these Slaves out of this captivity, I ask, pray tell me then at what point is he supposed to stand up to his name?  It has been well over 2,000 years now and this world of peoples mourn, suffer, starve, die  in the millions at young ages from sicknesses, impoverishment, malnutrition, and even despair, not to mention that there is no peace and happiness not even with rich peoples and nations.

 

While this is a serious matter, there is another topic of even greater concern and import that wholly questions the credibility of the man-god, JC, and the “New Testament” that idolizes and magnifies him. 

 

Let’s first look at why the GOD of Israel scattered HIS People, the Children of Israel.  Throughout the Hebrew Scriptures, we learn that the Israelites repeated rejected the CREATOR GOD of Israel for false gods and rejected HIS Righteous Way of Life.  They knew well that they were forbidden to add other ways of worship to GOD’s Book of the Law, as well, they could not change it either.  For these reasons the GOD of Israel said HE would scatter HIS Chosen/Covenant People, the Children of Israel, throughout the “Four Corners of the Earth” into the hands of their heathenish enemies.  And in these lands, they would serve gods that are no gods – gods that cannot save.
