The First Passover

 

Shalom, Shalom Yisrael, the High Holy days of the Passover Season and the start of the Hebrew year are celebrated with the sighting of the New Moon this month.  This is an exciting time for the House of Yehudah and the House of Yisrael to celebrate our liberation and Exodus from the slavery of the Egyptians.  The LawKeepers, Co. has organized Exodus II meetings for the purpose of calling all Yisraelites that have a desire to return to the land of our inheritance, so that we may praise the name of YIHOVAH and celebrate all our holidays as ELOHIM has commanded for us to do.  We as a nation have gone along time without our customs and learned the ways of the heathen and the Gentiles.  It is time to return to the old ways and serve the MOST HIGH righteously in our land. 

 

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.   Jeremiah 6:16

 

So let us read the signs from our Heavenly Father and prepare our hearts for this Exodus II from New “Egypt” (the United States of America) and the slavery that we have endured in it.  Let the scripture that follows from Exodus 12 move you with a spirit to heed HIS call, Shalom:  

 

“The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,“This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you.  Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household.  And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb.  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.

 

“Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.  They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.  Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts.  And you shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn.  In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord's Passover.  For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord.  The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt.

 

“This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.  Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven out of your houses, for if anyone eats what is leavened, from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.  On the first day you shall hold a holy assembly, and on the seventh day a holy assembly. No work shall be done on those days. But what everyone needs to eat, that alone may be prepared by you.  And you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this very day I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day, throughout your generations, as a statute forever.  In the first month, from the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the month at evening.  For seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses. If anyone eats what is leavened, that person will be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a sojourner or a native of the land.  You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your dwelling places you shall eat unleavened bread.”

 

Then Moses called all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go and select lambs for yourselves according to your clans, and kill the Passover lamb.  Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning.  For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you.  You shall observe this rite as a statute for you and for your sons forever.  And when you come to the land that the Lord will give you, as he has promised, you shall keep this service.  And when your children say to you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’  you shall say, ‘It is the sacrifice of the Lord's Passover, for he passed over the houses of the people of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians but spared our houses.’” And the people bowed their heads and worshiped.

 

Then the people of Israel went and did so; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.

 

At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the livestock. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians. And there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where someone was not dead.  Then he summoned Moses and Aaron by night and said, “Up, go out from among my people, both you and the people of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as you have said. Take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone, and bless me also!”

 

The Egyptians were urgent with the people to send them out of the land in haste. For they said, “We shall all be dead.”  So the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading bowls being bound up in their cloaks on their shoulders.  The people of Israel had also done as Moses told them, for they had asked the Egyptians for silver and gold jewelry and for clothing.  And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.

 

And the people of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.  A mixed multitude also went up with them, and very much livestock, both flocks and herds.  And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough that they had brought out of Egypt, for it was not leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared any provisions for themselves.

 

The time that the people of Israel lived in Egypt was 430 years.  At the end of 430 years, on that very day, all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.  It was a night of watching by the Lord, to bring them out of the land of Egypt; so this same night is a night of watching kept to the Lord by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.

 

And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the statute of the Passover: no foreigner shall eat of it, but every slave that is bought for money may eat of it after you have circumcised him. No foreigner or hired servant may eat of it. It shall be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the flesh outside the house, and you shall not break any of its bones.  All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.  If a stranger shall sojourn with you and would keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised. Then he may come near and keep it; he shall be as a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.  There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who sojourns among you.”

 

All the people of Israel did just as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron.  And on that very day the Lord brought the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.”  EXDOUS 12

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

 

 

 

In the last two journals the President of The Lawkeepers, Co posted articles regarding the Wilberforce Museum in Hull. Who was Wilberforce and where is the Hull spoken of in the article.


It is fitting that I write this article as I am a resident of Hull (Kingston Upon Hull) located in the North East of England in Great Britain.  Wilberforce is renown for his work regarding the Atlantic Slave Trade.


William Wilberforce was born in 1759 in Hull and died in 1833. He was a Politician, philanthropist, and it is alleged the leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade. William Wilberforce came from a wealthy Merchant and prominent white family, and he was able to voice his concerns.


He became an evangelical Christian in 1785, resulting in major changes to his lifestyle and a lifelong concern for reform. In 1787, he came into contact with Thomas Clarkson and a group of anti-slave-trade activists, including Granville Sharp, Hannah More and Charles Middleton. They, according to European history, persuaded Wilberforce to take on the cause of abolition, and he soon became one of the leading English abolitionists. He headed the parliamentary campaign against the British slave trade for twenty-six years until the passage of the Slave Trade Act 1807.


That campaign led to the Slavery Abolition Act 1833, which abolished slavery in most of the British Empire; Wilberforce died just three days after hearing that the passage of the Act through Parliament was assured.


 According to European historical records the abolishment of slavery was enforced within Britain as a result of his protest, or was it?


 Both of Wilberforce’s servants prompted him to initiate the movement along with Olaudah Equiano & other black protesters yet they have never really had the recognition for this. As blacks had no voice although it is portrayed they did, it was the White abolitionist who took recognition for this. What one should be asking is how these white abolitionists were in these influential positions in the first place (off the backs of slavery).


In some respect William Wilberforce condoned slavery as slaves where forced into unpaid apprentices after allegedly being free with Wilberforce’s knowledge and slaves who were already in slavery were not freed until 27 years later.  In other words they remained slaves.  

 

Are we any better off today?


Wilberforce’s motives were not solely based on morality, as at the time Liverpool’s economy was thriving due to the slave ships leaving and arriving there.  Hull on the other hand which had at one time been the most biggest and busiest port within the UK was not making any profit from the import of slaves. Wilberforce was not entirely against slavery until he became a xtian in fact his family profited from slavery.


To date many of the wealthy people in Hull like to take recognition for non racism and glory on Wilberforce’s achievement when it is actually extremely to the contrary as is the case for most of Britain.


Laws are enforced, regulations and statutes set up to profit the wealthy and yet they claim they are for Blacks. The infrastructure of the economy and the justice system is set up to protect the wealthy. Human rights supersede G-D’S laws and commandments, homophobia and anti Semitism is promoted over the real problem of racial discrimination and persecution of black Israelites.


To gain funding these organizations set up quango’s amongst their peers (nepotism) and then use the disabled, poor and needy and ethnic minorities for example to justify there spending, how much actually goes to these communities and how much actually makes lasting impact on these communities?

 

Where is our voice and representatives?


When you attempt to challenge the system of political correctness they use it for their own gain against you.  Anything goes with them to keep them in control or so they think (Psalm 75:7(8).  Inverse racism and labeling you as a activist, vexatious litigant or conspiracy theorist. The government’s first priority is to keep in power by stopping “anarchy” and not protecting the people.


Laws are written by wealthy whites and not black people or the poor and the needy, Blacks and the poor and the needy on a whole are misrepresented and have very little say. A recent survey conducted shows that Blacks have the worst Justice in all respects compared to any other peoples. 

 

And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.   Deuteronomy 1:16,17

 

And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.  And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you. And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.   Deuteronomy 19:18-21


I remember being confronted by some poor and needy guy when we were discussing slavery.  He stated that I need to forget about it. To which I replied that every person in Britain benefited from slavery as the whole Empire was built on piracy and slavery, and that if I did not make people aware of it they would not realize that racism still exists unless you are a victim and that I cannot tell people who we are and why it has happened and that there is a chance for the poor and the needy also (Isaiah 56:3-8, Isaiah 45:2-24, Deuteronomy 10:17-19 and Numbers 15:14-16 G-D is fair and both Israelite and non Israelite are accepted so long as we obey).


One misconception of the slave trade is the millions vs. 100 millions who died as a result of this genocide. Another misconception is why blacks sold slaves to whites.  Some but not all of these did this for fear of repercussions, either them or you.  And some did it out of gain, some did it out of stupidity, but this has been highly exaggerated by the Europeans in comparison to the lessened figure of deaths that resulted from slavery.


Slavery affects slaves and their descendants of present day. Much of Africa is exploited. The African economy is damaged and in debt to keep us docile. The West gives charity but in actuality it is returning a minute proportion of what was forcefully taken. Africa is self-sufficient with an invested interest.


It is the same for the Caribbean islands.  They are controlled by White people and exploited. Dictators or Uncle Toms are put in positions of authority as tokenism. An example is how the oil industry has destabilized Nigeria.  The US will try to do the same in Ghana.  This is also mirrored in the coups; particularly Nkrumah’s vision and first West African nation to gain independence. Is there any difference with the Israelites scattered; are we not exploited and do we get a fair deal?


Questions I always ask: why do blacks want to come to the west, and why do they look up to slave traders who despoiled the continent and brought their culture and belief not ours?

 

The reason is that they are the ruling principle.   They think everyone should be like them as if they are civilized. This is according to European History and not World wide history which is not taught. The Justice system is not civilized nor is it fair for both the poor and blacks.


We Israelites need to boast of our CREATOR G-D to all peoples and explain the reason for the injustices in the modern World.

We need Reparations like the Japanese, Native Americans, and Jews, etc, just as the Western World got rich through the backs of slavery and blacks have been mistreated far beyond any other race. This is an infringement on our Human Rights.


Every reparations movement has been declined and rigorously contested by the respective Governments.


We are looked upon as not making many contributions to the World as if we are uncivilized, and yet we have a diverse culture and much to contribute.  Were not many ancient civilizations black, and what is more they were the most successful.  Why then is this history not in the text books?


What of the:

 

Black holocaust; it is never referred to as Germany’s black holocaust, and there is no mention of it in Namibia 1890- 1945? Not part of History.

 

South Africa apartheid until recent:

 

Also South Africa developed a biological weapon to wipe out blacks and it affects only blacks.

Overall black oppression is trivialized and we are categorized with for example homosexuals/choice of perverted sexual preference vs. color of skin. One is born black but not homosexual. This is another tactic to label us as lower species and very derogatory.

 

Did they not also class us as animals?  Pygmy Guy exhibited had friendship with little girl and, he died in captivity although he begged to go home. Were we invited to work or brought forcefully?  Other races were not.


Africa is an Overseas dumping grounds for the western world.  Many Nations are using Africa to farm food for their own peoples whilst simultaneously the natives die of starvation. There is a cure for malaria, but has it been introduced into Africa?

We must reflect on this and do something about it, we are servants of the MOST HIGH.


The slave trade is the root to the World‘s problems. No one has ever apologized to this date.  Why?

 

Psalm 14


1. For the conductor, on machalath, a maskil of David. 2. The fool said in his heart, "There is no God"; they have dealt corruptly; they have committed abominable injustice; no one does good. 3. God looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see whether there is a man of understanding, who seeks God. 4. They are all dross; together they have spoiled; no one does good, not even one. 5. Did not the workers of iniquity know? Those who devoured My people partook of a feast; they did not call upon the Lord. 6. There they were in great fear; there was never such fear, for God scattered the bones of those who camp around you; You have put them to shame, for God rejected them. 7. O that the salvations of Israel would come out of Zion; when God returns the captivity of His people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.

Tribute to the New Moon:

 

Earth and Moon Viewer

You can view the Moon from the Earth

 

Current Moon Phases

 

The service of this solar/lunar calendar of TORAH READINGS is by definition using the “LIGHTS” of the sun and moon, according to Genesis 1:14, to number the “days” of each month.  And the dark phases of the moon cooperatively and conveniently provide a break between the months.  If there were no dark phases of the moon, we would have a tough time determining when one month ended and when another would begin.  Hence, because the Commandment is to use the “Lights” in the Heavens for “Signs” for seasons, days, and years, the New Moon Crescent is what provides us with our first lights of each new month and these lights continue waxing and waning until they are diminished to the dark phases.  And then in two to three days, the New Moon Crescent reappears again starting the First Day of another new month.

 

Realizing that even some Israelites use the dark phase of the moon to call the new month, I would like to add one obvious fact.  By definition, there can only be a “New Moon,” per se, after the dark phase interval and when the New Moon Crescent reappears, thus, we understand the concept of having a New moon. 

 

If the dark phase of the moon begins the First Day of the month, then when the New Moon Crescent is “Sighted” that could approximately be as far into the month as the Fourth Day, i.e., the appearance of the “Light” in the Heavens could possibly fall on the Fourth Day.  It makes no sense to start to count the first dark phase of the moon as being the First Day of the month, as this process disregards the use of the “Light” in the Heavens to determine our “days,” as we are Commanded to do in Genesis 1:14.  Consider what King David said in I Samuel 20:24:  “…when the New Moon was come…”  He had to be speaking about the New Moon Crescent, as we are unable to “Sight” the appearance of the dark phase or rather see it “come.”  

 

It’s the absence of seeing the moon for forty-eight or more hours that enables us to identify the approaching Crescent “Sign” in the Heavens (mentioned in Genesis 1:14) that recognizes the moon as being “New.”    And upon “Sighting” this “New” Crescent” we distinguish it as being the “New Moon” and the time of the New Month, as well.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Hebrew New Year is also determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens and not by the “sighting of barley,” as some Black Hebrew Israelites and European “Jews” advocate.

<<< APRIL 3,4,5, 2011 >>>

 

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

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons…”

Psalm 104:19

 

The first “Sign” in the Heavens to provide the start of days, years and “seasons” can only begin with the “Sighting” of the New Moon Crescent - that which we can “see” in order for it to serve as a “Sign” and enable us to begin counting our days and months.   Just imagine not being able to “see” the moon at all.  How then could it be appointed for a “Sign” or for “seasons”?

 

“The natural thought might be that the moon is like a living being.  It is born, grows, reaches maximum size, then fades and dies, going through all these stages in one month.  Even today, we still talk of the thin crescent in the western sky as a new moon and the thin crescent in the eastern sky a month later as the old moon.  Half way between is the full moon.  As I explained earlier, this cycle of phases of the moon established the month as a unit of time, and the first calendars were based on this.”   ISAAC ASIMOV’S GUIDE TO EARTH AND SPACE, pages 79 and 80

 

In that the King of Israel is supposed to be a “Righteous Judge” (II Chronicles 1:11), it stands to reason that he is also supposed to be a “Righteous Role Model.”  Thus, if the King that GOD appoints over Israel observes a “feast” on the day of the New Moon, then wisdom tells the Nation of Israel to do likewise.  King Saul and the anointed David observed this service (I Samuel 20th Chapter).

 

To their and our hurt our forefathers worshipped all manner of symbols:  the sun, moon, stars, and images of gold and silver.  To observe the “Sign” in the heavens as being the New Moon “Sighting” is NOT worshipping the moon, but rather it is doing as we are COMMANDED in Genesis 1:14:

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”

 

Some people feel that the moon has no “light,” but according to GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets, it most certainly does:  Isaiah 13:10; Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 31:35; Ezekiel 32:7. 

 

***

 

“Sing aloud unto God our strength:  make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

“Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed,

on our solemn feast day.

“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.”  

Psalm 81:1 – 4

 

(A Psalm of Asaph, the Seer –

one who should be well informed about GOD’s Ways)

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings,

and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:  I am the LORD your God.”  

Numbers 10:10

 

Contrary to the belief of some Israelites, the moon does indeed shine!  Even if the Moon shines with the aid of the sun, i.e., reflects the light of the sun, IT STILL SHINES!  And the fact that Scripture attests to this fact, is what’s important:  Isaiah 60:19; Jeremiah 31:35; and Ezekiel 32:7.  Therefore, Genesis 1:14 is proof enough that we must use the shining New Moon Crescents as “…SIGNS, AND FOR SEASONS, AND FOR DAYS, AND FOR YEARS:”  

 

Some Israelites, along with White Jews, use the dark phase of the moon to determine the start of a new month.  If the dark phase of the moon lasts for “2-3 days,” then which of these days is supposed to be the distinguishing “Sign” that determines the First Day of the month?  Or do we just arbitrarily select either/or depending on the imaginations of our hearts?  

 

On the contrary, with the use of the sighted “Sign” of the New Moon Crescent in the Heavens we eliminate any confusion as to which day IS the First Day of the month. 

 

“So David hid himself in the field: and WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME, the king sat him down to eat meat.”   I Samuel 20:24

 

At the time of the dark phases of the moon (generally 2-3 days), as previously written, there is no “moon” in SIGHT.  Therefore, I Samuel 20:24 sheds more light on Genesis 1:14.  “WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME,” is clearly telling readers that this is a reference to a visible “Moon Crescent Sighting”  - the light in the firmament…i.e., the “Sign” for (lunar) days.  Thus, if we are to count all the lunar days (29.5) in a month, it only makes sense to start counting from the New Moon Crescent “when the New Moon was come” and NOT from the dark phases at the end of the month, which do not emit any “sign” or “light” in the heavens.

 

The only problem that presents itself when using the “New Moon Sighting” to call the First Day of the month is cloud coverage, as this prevents the ability to see the New Moon Crescent.   Nonetheless, when “Sighted,” one can easily distinguish the New Moon Crescent from all the other phases due to its thin sliver and its low position in the heavens.  And the reason is that no two days or rather phases of the visible moon are alike.  Hence, to use the New Moon Crescent as the “Sign” in the heavens, as we are COMMANDED to do for our seasons, days, and years, negates the belief that the “commandment was given to the luminaries.”  The “luminaries” fulfill GOD’s Commandments:  the sun shines and the moon orbits the Earth.  They have no need to determine seasons, days, and years.  Hence, our New Moons are obviously of more spiritual significance to the Nation of Israel than we are aware.  And for sure, the TRUTH concerning them are in GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets/Seers - not the White Jews or other Gentiles.  All we need do is use wisdom, discern what’s written in Scripture, accept it, and act accordingly!

 

“Then Solomon offered burnt offerings unto the LORD on the altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,

 

“Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.” II Chronicles 8:12,13

 

Unless there is an emergency, please try not to buy or sell on this day.  Conduct all financial and business transactions prior to the day of the New Moon.  Interesting enough, II Kings 4:23,24 constitutes the New Moon as being a day to seek “the man of God.”  Although the New Moon is NOT a Day of Rest, Our GOD did set it aside for recognition:

 

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.”   Psalm 81:3

 

“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 66:23

 

“…When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn?…”   Amos 8:5

 

Probably, the Scripture that most determines and clarifies the fact that our New Moons are Feast Days is Ezekiel 45:17:

 

“And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the NEW MOONS, and in the Sabbaths, in ALL SOLEMNITIES of the house of Israel:  he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the HOUSE OF ISRAEL.”   (Caps. are mine.)

 

Unequivocally, our New Moons are included in these “SOLEMNITIES” mentioned in Ezekiel 45:17.

 

“Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the Sabbaths [Feasts – NOT 7th Day Sabbaths*] and in the NEW MOONS.”   Ezekiel 46:3   (Brackets are mine.)

 

Thereby, this verse justifies the First Day of each month being our “Feast” Day.  It should be realized that the Feast Days that Our GOD selected (Leviticus 23rd Chapter) are “Holy Convocations,” i.e., on these days we cannot do any work.  However, because King Saul observed the New Moon as a Feast Day, we have every reason to do so, as well.   We also have learned that our forefathers traveled to the Temple to worship the Holy ONE on the New Moon (II Kings 4:23; Ezekiel 45:17; and Ezekiel 46:1), and when HE has HIS Temple rebuilt, then we will again be able to resume this service and worship.

 

When we return to our heritage and worship YIHOVAH according to HIS Ways, then we can establish our own “Calendar of the Universe,” whereby, the days of the New Moon and all GOD’s Holy Days will be recognized by the whole entire World.  And I am sure that it will be the desire of the Righteous Remnant and ALL the world to make a Feast to the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel every First Day of the Month. 

 

ALSO, I believe that if Lot (Genesis 19:3) and Abraham (Genesis 21:8) can proclaim “Feasts,” then there is no stipulation for NOT establishing Feast Days, as we so desire.  Therefore, to proclaim a feast to EXALT the Holy ONE of Israel on the First Day of each month is quite acceptable - given the Scripture (above) regarding worshipping Our LORD GOD of ISRAEL, Our SAVIOR, on the New Moons.  We should know that throughout the Tanakh Hebrew Israelites called for “feasts” for various occasions.  Therefore, we are within our rights to observe a Feast every New Moon to Our GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.   And those of us who love this WONDERFUL GOD and who choose HIM to EXALT HIM for being the ONLY LORD and SAVIOR can be at liberty to use the day of the New Moon to show forth HIS PRAISE in a “feast” and worship HIM in Jerusalem FOREVER. 

 

“And Solomon awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and [he] made a feast to all his servants.”

I Kings 3:15

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.

and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,

which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar;

The LORD of hosts is his name:

 

“If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD,

then the seed of Israel also shall cease

from being a nation before me for ever.”

Jeremiah 31:35,36

QUESTIONS ON “OLD TESTAMENT” BIBLE TRIVIA TO PONDER:

 

QUESTIONS TWO:

 

In regards to the Hebrew Way of Life, what is the significance of being the Firstborn son?

 

***

 

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”   Jeremiah 6:16

 

Why “Old Paths”?  What does the GOD of Israel mean by “Old Paths”?

 

***

 

Q AND A:  QUESTION AND ANSWER:

 

What issues written in the Hebrew Scriptures pose as a warning for us to take heed to murmuring against GOD’s WORD and especially that which causes contention and strife among Israelites?

 

Sometimes it pays to just keep our mouths shut.  Umpteen years ago my baby brother told me, “If you don’t know what to say, don’t say anything!”  I was so embarrassed, that I now share his sentiments. 

 

If you want to learn something about people, just watch and listen to them.  Let them do the talking.  Not everybody can do this, but sometimes when you listen, you can hear unspoken words, read between the lines, and read body language, as well as see if they are serious or are in the business of playing games.  The ability to listen and learn about people is an art not studied in the educational system.  My daughter learned to do this when she was but a year old when I noticed it.  She had it down to a science.  A children, no matter how young or old, would not be her friend until she could analyze them first.  If for whatever reason she did not like them, she would pinch them.  Yep, that is true.  Children are more observant than we can imagine.  I became more adept at reading people from my profession and old school, you might say.   But anyone can learn this skill. 

 

So, why is it sometimes best for us, Israelites, to keep our mouths shut so that we do not adversely influence others and cause ourselves undo harm?  Miriam never would have been cursed with leprosy had she done so.  The “evil congregation” would not have had to spend forty years in the Wilderness and die there.  The Earth would not have swallowed up Dathan, Abiram, and Korah and their families.  And the “fiery serpent” would not have killed so many Israelites.  We can learn from this, especially since we are going into a Second Wilderness. 

 

We have to start taking GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD even more seriously, and above all, we have to start FEARING HIM to be an asset for HIS GLORY and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake in TRUTH.

 

Some people, if you can believe it, know GOD, but just do not choose to follow HIS Ways.  That decision might prove to be the thing to do, rather than be in the middle of the equation and murmur about GOD’s WORKS and/or play games with HIM.  

 

Hence again, sometimes it is better for us to keep our mouths shut and wait on the Holy ONE to see and experience HIS Love for us.  HE did not utterly destroy the Israelites, and HE took care of them in the Wilderness, and HE will take care of us.  All we need do is TRUST IN HIM and be obedient to HIS LAW.   And it doesn’t hurt to be of a contrite spirit!

 

“The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their trouble The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”   Psalm 34:15 - 19

 

“…Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people. For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”   Isaiah 57:14,15

 

Let us be wiser than our forefathers in this Second Wilderness, for I promise you, the GOD of Israel will have no mercy on those who are there to cause division and contention among us.  As HE has said, HE will purge out the rebels.  Look back at our Biblical history and see that HIS Wrath has done just that and will do so again.

 

“But 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

 

“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

 

Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.   Psalm 37:34

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.

6 Vitamins Every Woman Should Take

 

By Anamarie Shreeves on Mar 25th 2011 11:29AM

Filed under: Women's Health

Nobody wants to lug around a huge pillbox all day, but let's face it: Our bodies do not produce certain nutrition adequately, and we're not making sure the foods we eat are fortified with the necessary supplements.


Even if you eat a proper diet on a meal-to-meal basis, there may be minerals your body rids itself of quickly or a specific condition you must cater to. Supplemental vitamins ensure you are meeting nutrition requirements that your body has set. If the age-old octogenarian pillbox doesn't work for you, invest in something cuter, smaller or more colorful, because you will need it.


1. Echinacea

People commonly grab a bottle of echinacea off the shelves when they feel a cold coming, but this supplement is not only useful when you start to feel a little scratch in your throat. Studies have proven that echinacea does not actually treat a common cold, but it does release chemicals that lessen inflammation.


Unlike most supplements, echinacea is not available in foods and must be taken in pill form or steeped in hot water. Try Natrol Echinacea Goldenseal, $6.99 for 90, vitaminshoppe.com.


2. Biotin

For every woman that recently went natural, biotin has become a part of every meal you devour throughout the day, because drooling over photos of Yaya DaCosta, Melanie Brown and YouTube's favorite Kimmaytube just won't cut it. Biotin is a protein that supports the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism and cells. Try Nature's Bounty Biotin, $5.99, drugstore.com.

 

3. Vitamin D

According to drweil.com, producers of Weil Vitamin D, this vitamin, which is abundant in milk, assists in the absorption of calcium and promotes bone mineralization. Andrew Weil, M.D., an international leader in natural and preventive medicine, recommends that people take 2,000 IU of Vitamin D per day. If milk's not your thing, try Weil's Vitamin D, $9.99, walgreens.com.

 

4. Folic Acid

Folic acid produces red blood cells for the body, which prevents anemia, but medical professionals suggest women of childbearing age consume 400 mcg daily to prevent birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. According to this article on WebMD, these conditions prevent the baby's brain from completely developing and oftentimes leave them paralyzed for life.


Nature Made Folic Acid can be found at numerous retailers for around $6.85 a bottle, but if you're not into pill popping, drink orange juice often -- it's rich in folic acid.


5. Omega-3 Fish Oil

Depending on your daily food choices, fish oil tablets may need to be added to your pillbox. Fish oil, and cold water fish, is a primary source for Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids regulate cardiovascular disease by lowering blood pressure, reducing artery clogs and reducing triglycerides, which are chemical fats in foods. Try Puritan's Pride Fish Oil tablets, $9.99, puritan.com.

 

6. Multivitamins

Kill plenty of birds with one multivitamin stone. Multivitamins contain many of the supplements recommended for women to take each day including Vitamins C, E and B12 as well as thiamin, riboflavin and folic acid.


According to consumersearch.com, a Website that evaluates consumer reviews in online marketplaces, many people that used Optimum Nutrition Opti-Women Multivitamins found it gave them an energy boost and enjoyable feelings. Opti-Women Multivitamins, $21.99, optimumnutrition.com.

CINNAMON AND HONEY

 

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey... However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call "crystallizing".   When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

 

Cinnamon and Honey

Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around.  Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:  It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very

effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.  Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

 

Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.   Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

 

HEART DISEASES:

Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

 

ARTHRITIS:

Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found

that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one  tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

 

BLADDER INFECTIONS:

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

 

CHOLESTEROL:

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.   As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

 

COLDS:

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

 

UPSET STOMACH:

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

 

GAS:

According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

 

IMMUNE SYSTEM:

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

 

INDIGESTION:

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

 

INFLUENZA:

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu..

 

LONGEVITY:

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink ¼ cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

 

PIMPLES:

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

 

SKIN INFECTIONS:

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts; cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

 

WEIGHT LOSS:

Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

 

CANCER:

Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

 

FATIGUE:

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a

half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

 

BAD BREATH:

People of South America, first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

 

HEARING LOSS:

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Here are excerps from "abchomeopathy" under 'diabetes and cinnamon" I have been taking cinnamon now daily for almost two years...not for diabetes, but for the other health benefits it provides. Cinnamon does, indeed, stabalize blood sugar, and when taken in the morning, supports your blood sugar throughout the day. I was putting roughly one to two tablespoons in my shakes every morning (on top of the almost daily servings of delicious, cinnamon laced Indian food for dinner.) Why so much cinnamon, you ask? Well, as much as I would like to be healthy, when I figured out that cinnamon curbed appetite, kept energy levels up, and helped me lose weight in a more natural way, I got hooked...and started using this sumtuous spice very liberally, especially on days when I did not have time for lunch. About four months ago, though, I started to have peculiar symptoms that were not readily attributed to the cinnamon. I had severe stomach pains, like a stomach ache, but much worse...and at first, I thought I had heart burn, so I cut all spicy food out of my diet for about a week (including my morning shakes,) and I got better. But soon after starting up again, I started to have more alarming symptoms: severe, debilitating chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness (frequently bordering on hallucinations,) cold sweats, facial flushing, pain radiating down my left arm and up my neck, and finally, nausea and vomitting. I found that doing any physical activity at all fatigued me, and that I was suffering from tachycardia almost constantly. I felt sick every time I ate (which people with heart burn usually feel better,) and every time I did Yoga (which usually makes me feel great.) I have done a lot of research, and being a thin, mostly healthy, physicially fit and active 30 year old with no history of heart condition either personally or in the family, I found that I couldn't really believe that I have CHF or angina. You know, it is like when you get food poisoning from your favorite restaurant at lunch, and even though you don't get sick until after dinner, you know that it was lunch that was the culprit. I had this feeling that the cinnamon was making me sick. So, I started reading about it and found this:

 

Essential Oil Poisoning

Journal Journal of Toxicology: Clinical Toxicology

Publisher Taylor & Francis

ISSN 0731-3810

Issue Volume 37, Number 6/1999

Category Original

DOI 10.1081/CLT-100102450

Pages 721-727

 

"Other signs of acute cinnamon toxicity include facial flushing, shortness of breath, tachycardia, dizziness, and abdominal pain, etc." and this:

 

"In their latest paper, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Anderson et al. characterize the insulin-enhancing complexes in cinnamon—a collection of catechin/epicatechin oligomers that increase the body’s insulin-dependent ability to use glucose roughly 20-fold.. Some scientists had been concerned about potentially toxic effects of regularly consuming cinnamon. This new research shows that the potentially toxic compounds in cinnamon bark are found primarily in the lipid (fat) soluble fractions and are present only at very low levels in water soluble cinnamon extracts, which are the ones with the insulin-enhancing compounds. "

 

Generally, we don't ingest the water soluble extracts, but the ground bark which has the Cinnamaldehyde (also called cinnamic aldehyde) and Coumarin. I have already noticed a marked improvement from withdrawing the overuse of cinnamon from my diet. I do not know how long these toxins stay in the system, or when I may start taking cinnamon again, but as I find more information, I promise I will pass it along. I did read that it is best not to have more than half a teaspoon twice a day. The truth is, it is always good to remember the old adage, "Everything in moderation," and that if you use your good sense and judgement, and pay attention to your body when you make dietary changes, you will end up alright in the end. I hope this helps a little! Best wishes! :)

Amazing Benefits of Honey!

 

<!--[if !vml]-->benefits of honey image<!--[endif]-->Discover the enormous benefits of honey; its myriad varieties and host of health benefits. Its versatility and the goodness it can bring into your everyday practical life is WOW!

 

Not only does this delectable liquid stimulate your taste buds and whet your appetite, its unique taste and aroma has sprung off many time honor cooking ideas and recipes such as the cannot-be-missed honey baked ham and honey dips. But is honey really good for you? This caramel-like liquid seems to be full of calories. ...sure it tastes good and has a pleasant texture that coats the irritated throat, but is it no more than just a tasty placebo?

 

The fact is, honey is far better than what most people perceive. Researchers are turning up more and more new evidence of honey's medical benefits in all directions. The benefits of honey don't just stop at satisfying the palate; honey also offers incredible antiseptic, antioxidant and cleansing properties for our body and health, hot beauty and skin care tips for ladies, and amazing healing properties as a head-to-toe remedy, from eye conjunctivitis to athlete foot. Its powerful healing attributes have long been used thousands of years ago and known to promote healing for cuts, cure ailments and diseases, and correct health disorders for generations after generations. The renowned UMF Manuka honey, perhaps the tastiest natural medicine, is commonly cited in many discussions on health benefits of honey. This honey not only fights infection and aids tissue healing but also helps reduce inflammation and scarring. In addition, it is often used for treating digestive problems such as diarrhea, indigestion, stomach ulcers and gastroenteritis. The page, titled "In What Ways have You Experienced the Benefits of Honey?" is filled with eye-popping testimonies about the healing power of honey. I've lost count of the number of times I have accessed that page, but the stories posted there never cease to move and amaze me over and over again. With more and more health experts and theories, such as the Hibernation Diet, supporting its benefits, this oldest natural sweetener just keeps getting better.

 

One of the greatest pleasure and fascination in using honey is understanding the different floral varieties of honey, their appearance and quality, and experimenting with each of their unique taste and distinct flavor, and being able to know which floral variety of honey is most perfect for which kind of foods. The uses and benefits of honey in foods are as diverse as its floral varieties and places of origin. It is almost like acquiring wine knowledge through wine-tasting and getting information on the origin, quality and worth of the different wines. Very intriguing, satisfying, and even infectious! Besides all the pages on benefits of honey, perhaps one of the most well-received topics in this web resource is related to those exotic, tantalizing recipes which I have specially created and developed using honey. I think this is what makes the honey recipes here different from the massive number of honey recipes available out there.....exotic!

 

Bottom of Form

This rich and comphrehensive honey web resource currently has over 240 pages (links to these pages can be found in the pages listed on the menu bar, otherwise, you could also make use of the above easy Custom Search). It sets out to share with all the honey buffs in this world how exciting discovering the uses and benefits of honey can be. (It has become a "Benefits of Honey Wikipedia"!) And since early 2007, it has grown into a phletora of other health and nutrition contents, bringing you news on some of the hottest health-buzzwords like cortisol, natural skin care, lymphatic systems, organic food, antioxidant, and detox - all of which you can find in our Health & Nutrition Resources Index . There you also can find links to some very layman, easy to understand explanations on honey bee products such as propolis, royal jelly, beewax, and bee pollen, and some of the most common health problems such as bad breath, athlete foot, hair loss, sleep disorder, arthritis, acne, and yeast infection - all of which honey has traditionally been used as a natural cure or alternative medicine. For the latest additions and new pages in this website, you can track and find them in the Honey Blog.

 

Come in and be awed by the goodness of honey, get some quick easy honey facts and interesting honey bees information, be introduced to some common bee products and their benefits and uses, scrutinize together the nutrition and properties of honey and its health benefits. Well, I probably cannot offer you medical advice on honey like a medical doctor or promote honey as a substitute for professional medical care, and I don't aim to, but as a honey enthusiast, I am eager to give you all the reasons in the most laymen, simplest language that is easy for everybody to grasp and appreciate - why honey is such a superfood, why we should feel indebted to the tireless creatures which have to visit two million flowers just to provide us with one pound of honey, why everyone should always keep a jar of honey at home, and even why one should consider using it during a fast. Also you will realize with its bewildering number of varieties, this natural sweetener is comparable to tea, coffee, wine in its complexity, and agree that it surely doesn't deserve to be labelled as a mundane or humdrum commodity which has a homogeneous taste and flavour, like water, salt, and sugar.

 

I sincerely hope that what we discuss in Benefits of Honey will change the way people talk about honey and experience honey, turning consumption into a special ceremony, and with its own special tastes, honey will find a new star status as a chic and awe-inspiring golden liquid.

Eating for health has never been sweeter.

Honey Isn't Just Sugar!

 

In my participation of health forums, the misconception of sugar and the negative perception of honey surface from time to time. Here's a typical ranting from supposedly health-conscious netizens:

 

"Honey is sugar super-saturated with water. You got to be kidding yourself if you tell me that it is healthier than any other concentrated sugar product. Sugar is sugar; people eat it because it is a carbohydrate rich in energy. It doesn't matter where it comes from, the cane or the bees, costing more doesn't make it any better. So, do not be so naive and delude yourself, the liquid from the bees is just as fattening like any other sugars and can cause problems like obesity and diabetes. It contains traces of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals but the amount is so insignificant that you need to eat tons of it to benefit from it."

 

How often do we hear such erroneous statements being made, and even many times from the medical profession? The statements above contain the same logical fallacy as this conversation which I picked up weeks back from a lady who was teaching her friend at the pedestrian crossing, "hey, swimming is not good for you, they make you fat. You'll feel so hungry after swimming that you will gorge and consume more calories than you should. So, never include swimming as part as your exercise regime." I was expecting the lady's friend to object to the argument but to my surprise, she acknowledged it politely and even appeared to be thankful about the new knowledge! No wonder some people say common sense is not always common.

 

The reasoning here is not about eating excessively and a wilful bingeing of sugary stuff, which is all straight-forward enough for us to leave that stone unturned. I am talking about choosing honey over other sugars and eating it for health. "Not all fats are equal" seems to be common knowledge for people who are dieting and weight conscious, but "all sugars are not created equal" sometimes seems to come across as bizarre and counter intuitive. People need to know that there are good sugar, bad sugar and even dangerous sugar! And because there are so many guises of sweeteners, and some come in names that you can even pronounce, we must know how to read food labels critically!

 

Think about it. Which sugar amongst all sugars fits this behaviour - it is anabolic, medicinal, antiseptic, anti-cancer, gentle on blood sugar, friendliest to our liver, the most ideal fuel for burning body fats, and has many healing effects? None, except honey. Taste aside (though I vote it as the tastiest sugar, sweetest medicine), I believe bee's sugar is the best, nature-given sugar for our body, yet probably most forgotten and neglected sweetener. While the bees play a critical role as pollinators for many agricultural crops in maintaining a balanced eco-system, they also have one very important work - yielding a sweet sticky liquid that man can eat for health. The healthful substances in the bee food may be minute in quantity, but overtime, when consumed daily, consistently and persistently will bring about a powerful accumulative effect in our health and body immunity that is huge enough to be felt and seen. I believe that if the bees have not added something more special into the nectar they collect to make the natural sweetener different from other sugars, then there would not be so many unsolicited emails streaming into my mailbox raving about the healing benefits of the golden liquid, how it has cured so many ailment including cough, sinus, eczema, infections, arthritis, pains, burns, cuts, and even brought new precious understanding to those who are obese, trying to lose pounds, have high blood pressure, cholesterol issues and diabetes. Hence, if honey is superior to all other forms of sugar or sweetener, surely then, it must be treated differently and its health benefits become common knowledge.

 

If you have never quite known honey or couldn't think of the golden liquid as more than just sugar and calories, hold on, reading on its powerful ability (I am not exaggerating) could mean waking up to some very precious truths related to sugar and opening up a whole new perspective that could bring a huge impact on your shopping and daily dieting habits. The creation and development of this site is emotively motivated by an urgent need to rectify any misconception of honey in the ferocious onslaught of more and more dangerous artificial sweeteners and worrying increasing demand for exceptionally cheap, yet incredibly nasty high fructose corn syrup. Parents, be informed on the effects of different sugars and take action. No one is going to care and plan more for your children's health than you, not the schools, not the food authorities, and not the doctors. I believe this natural sugar can help us and the future generations turn away from refined HFCS and the host of harmful artificial sweeteners that are wreaking much havoc on the human body. Pass the word around about what the bees have given us, convert as many of your friends and loved ones as possible before they get whirled into the confusing and deceptive world of sugars.

 

I'm neither a beekeeper nor a medical doctor (well, I'm not even sure if the latter is on the same wavelength when it comes to discussing sugar…). I am an ordinary consumer of honey who has become frenetic on discovering how intelligent and good this bee food is. And you might be also surprised to know that honey is not natural in our culture; there are no bee farms or beekeepers in my country, hardly any bees, and no fresh honeycomb to eat directly from. Nevertheless, it is perhaps this very depravity that results in an even stronger desire to know more about what God has bestowed through nature and a greater love for what is not available in this place imbued with the ways of a sophisticated city.

 

With over 230 pages, this site is huge. Here are some places that you could start with; they represent some of my most favourite write-ups as they have opened the minds of so many to understand the different behaviours of sugar. Sincerely and earnestly, I hope very page you read would lead you in making some of your most vital, rational, and transformational eating decisions.

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:

 

THE CREATOR’s GREATER AND LESSER LIGHTS,

THE SUN, MOON, AND STARS

ARE SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS

FOR SEASONS, DAYS, AND YEARS!

 

“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:

 

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven

TO GIVE LIGHT UPON THE EARTH:

and it was so.”

Genesis 1:13,14

 

“Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.”

Psalm 148:3 – 5

 

“I have made the earth, and created man upon it:

I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.”

Isaiah 45:12

 

“He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom,

and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.”

Jeremiah 10:12

 

“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb,

I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;

that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;”

Isaiah 44:24

 

March 2011

 

We will never advance in knowledge of our Hebrew Culture if we will not seek to learn about the CREATOR GOD’s WONDROUS WORKS that HE established in the Heavens and made specifically available to all mankind.  As we advance in GOD’s Truth, we will advance in knowledge, and we should not be slack to share what we learn from Our CREATOR GOD and from HIS Creations. 

 

THE MOON

 

I remember well one night in Liberia, walking the road to my house and looking up at the Heavens at the moon that had been changing its phase from night to night.  I thought to myself that, “One day the GOD of Israel will give me the understanding of what these different phases mean.”  Well Praise HIS Holy Name, we are Blessed to now understand that the phases of the moon, called the lesser light in the Heavens, in the Hebrew Scriptures, are of great significance in the Hebrew Way of Life.  Without it (and the sun), we would not be able to count our days, months, and determine our seasons, as per Genesis 1:14,15: 

 

“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: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.” 

 

The moon enables man to keep the cycle of the months even with the cycle of the seasons.  As the moon orbits the Earth, each night it takes on different reflections from the sun called phases.  As the New Moon’s Crescent grows more distinct, it is said to “wax”, and after its Full Moon, it is said to wane.  The Moon Phases are very interesting, and the reason is that with each New Moon Crescent its appearance is in a different place in the Heavens.  In the Spring, the New Moon Crescent will be Sighted in a different place in the Heavens as it is Sighted in a continuous northwesterly position.  In June, the New Moon Crescent is Sighted heading back in a southwesterly movement.

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.”   Psalm 104:19

 

If you will recall, the Most High GOD was quite satisfied living in DARKNESS.  And the reason we know this is that HE did not Create Light until HE determined to Create the Heavens and the Earth for mankind.

 

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”   Genesis 1:1,2

 

THE SUN

 

Another grander WONDER just hanging out in the Heavens, you might say, is our sun, which, according to Genesis, is the greater light of our 24-hour day. If we said that the sun shines day and night, we would not be wrong.  You see, the lesser light coming from the moon is produced by the sun. 

 

The sun not only provides daylight, but it also warms the Earth and in conjunction with rain, it enables all plant life and produce to thrive hardily for our consumption.   Is the CREATOR GOD not AWESOME or what?!  Without the sun, we would not be able to determine the end of each day.  And without both the lesser and the greater lights and stars, we would have no seasons, days, and years.  We would all be living in cold temperatures and in pitch darkness.

 

THE STARS

 

Finally, the entities called stars that we see in the night skies for twinkling, not only provide light in the Heavens, but they also provide guidance on the seas and more importantly avail us of the times of the seasons of the year.  Of a Truth, the CREATOR’s INVENTIONS are second to none.

 

THE SEASONS

 

We pretty much know now about the days, months, and years, but the seasons, well we have to try and learn more about how they are determined, given the lighted “Signs” in the Heavens.  The daylight (sun) and the nightlight (moon) aid in determining our Seasons. 

 

First it is important to know that the sun does not move.  That’s right!  Contrary to our watching it move across the sky and even go down, no, it does not move.  Actually, it is the Earth’s movement that makes the sun appear as if it is moving.  The Earth tilts and revolves around or rather orbits the sun.  This process takes one full year.  At this same time the moon orbits the Earth while the Earth and moon orbit the sun.  Fascinating, right?!  No magic, but just more Great WONDERS the CREATOR invented and performs proving that HE is indeed GOD ALL MIGHTY, and that there is none else!  The next time someone mentions JC, I think I’ll ask them if he has done anything so miraculous as GOD’s Creations.   

 

We have what are called “equinoxes” for Spring and Winter and “solstices” for Summer and Autumn.  These “equinoxes and solstices”, that require the sun, are occurrences in the Heavens providing “Signs” for each season in agreement with the CREATOR’s WORD in Genesis 1:14.

 

SPRING

When the noonday lighted “Sign” of the sun shines directly on the equator, then starts the season of Spring, which occurs on March 20th, at the same set time every year.  At the time this happens, this is called the “Spring Equinox”.  At this time, day and night are of equal lengths.

 

“The path taken by the sun, however, is at an angle to the equator.  The noonday sun shines directly on the equator on March 20th every year, and n that date, night and day are each twelve hours loing all over the Earth.  This day is known as the vernal equinox, since vernal comes fro, the Latin word for spring, and equinox from the Latin word for equal night.” Isaac Asimov’s Guide to Earth and Space, pp. 19.

 

SUMMER

On June 21st, when the lighted “Sign” of the sun shines directly over what’s xalled “The Tropic of Cancer”, it is said to be summer with hot temperatures to confirm it.

 

“From day to day, thereafter, the noonday sun moves northward until, on June 21st, it is shining directly over the Tropic of Cancer, which passes just north of Hacana, Cuba, at which time it stops and begins to drift southward again.  June 21st is therefore called the summer solstice (from a Latin word for “sun stands still”).”  Isaac Asimov’s Guide to Earth and Space, pp. 19.

 

AUTUMN

Months later on September 23, when the lighted “Sign” of the sun is over the equator, it is then said to be the “Autumnal Equinox” with falling temperatures and deciduous trees shedding their leaves to call the time of the year.

 

“The sun then begins to move southward till it is directly over the equator on September 23 (the autumnal equinox) and continues in this direction until it is shining directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, which runs just south of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on December 21st.“  Isaac Asimov’s Guide to Earth and Space, pp. 19.

 

WINTER

When the lighted “Sign” of the sun is shining directly over the tropic of Capricorn (just south of Rio de Janeiro) on December 21st, it is said to be “the Winter Solstice” with temperatures inviting sleet and snow to mark three months of a cold spell that won’t go away until the cycle again calls for Spring when the lighted “Sign” of the sun is shining directly on the equator – AGAIN - indicating the start of a new year.

 

“On this day [December 21st] (the winter solstice) the sun stops drifting southward and begins advancing north again, reaching the equator at March 20th and repeating the same cycle year after year.”  Isaac Asimov’s Guide to Earth and Space, pp. 19.

 

WHY ARE THESE HEAVENLY ENTITIES  SO IMPORTANT TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL?

 

Israelites must be availed of the times the sun sets or rather be knowledgeable of each evening, whether the 24-hour day is a Holy Day or not.  The evening and the morning are the start of each new day.  Thus, we are able to count our days.  See Genesis First Chapter for the example Our CREATOR GOD demonstrates for us for each day of the week.  The 24-hour day does not begin at Midnight, as is the custom in the Gentile world.  And also, as some Israelites believe, GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST does not start in the morning, but in the evening.

 

“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

 

Israelites have the CREATOR’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath and other Holy Days that we are Commanded to observe.  By knowing when each day and each month begins and ends, we can determine the cycles of each week (via the Sabbath the CREATOR kept in Genesis), each month (via the New Moon Crescents), and each year by the sun (Spring Equinox) and the moon (Beginning of months unto us via the New Moon Crescent).  Knowing the start of each Hebrew New Year is especially important.  Therefore, we must FIRST call the Season that starts the Beginning of Months for Israelites, and then SIGHT the New Moon Crescent in order to call the Fourteenth at Sundown that begins the Hebrew Israelite observance of the Feast of the Memorial of Passover and Unleavened Bread.  The GOD of Israel says nothing about using “barley” to determine the start of the Hebrew New Year or Passover.  This is a myth contrived by White “Jews”.

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”   Exodus 12:1,2

 

In addition to what’s written above, we know that the Hebrew New Year begins in the Spring of the year because of what’s written in the Hebrew Scriptures.  At the time of Passover, when the Children of Israel came out of Egypt, the “flax…was smitten…and bolled” (Exodus 9:31).  That season was the Beginning of months unto Israelites – the time of Passover. However, though we know that flax was in growth indicating a time of Spring, it is the happenings in GOD’s Heaven that we must use as an indicator (Genesis 1:14) to call the Season of Spring.  Hence, we must first await the Season of Spring and THEN await the New Moon Crescent to determine the start of Passover.  Genesis 1:14 makes no mention of searching for flax or barley, but requires that we use the CREATOR’s Lighted “Signs” in the Heavens for “Seasons, and for days, and years”.

 

I know it is hard to imagine, but one day the entire world will worship the CREATOR GOD of Israel and acknowledge HIS Calendar and will observe the Holy Days HE has Commanded of HIS Covenant People.  At that time the Holy ONE of Israel will establish HIS New Heaven and HIS New Earth, whereby all peoples will Fear HIM to worship HIM according to HIS Truth and according to HIS Ways of Righteousness.

 

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make,

shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another,

and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me,

saith the LORD. And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men

that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die,

neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”

Isaiah 66:22 - 24

 

“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

 

 “O taste and see that the LORD is good:

blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

Psalm 34:8

IT IS TIME FOR US TO REMEMBER PASSOVER

AND HOW AND WHY

THE CREATOR GOD DELIVERED

HIS COVENANT PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPTIAN BONDAGE

 

March 30, 2011

 

Passover is upon us, and we will soon be observing the Great MEMORIAL of GOD’s MIGHTY HAND in Delivering our forefathers out of Ancient Egypt.

 

This is the season and time Commanded of us to go into Jerusalem to Feast before Our GOD of Israel and talk of all HIS Wondrous WORKS and PLAGUES that HE demonstrated proving to HIS People, the Children of Israel, HIS POWERS and HIS Love for them.  Of course those in control of GOD’s Land today deny our Hebrew Israelite lineage, and refuse our immigration to Israel preventing our observing Passover in GOD’s Land.  Nevertheless, that does not make us exempt from keeping Passover according to all its “Rites”.

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season. In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.”   Numbers 9:1 – 3

 

Upon Delivering the Children of Israel out of Egypt, HE made a Holy Name for HIMSELF – ONE that the Egyptians, the Canaanites, and the surrounding nations did not forget.  Even after forty years in the Wilderness, the people of Jericho still fainted because of the GOD of Israel’s PLAGUES, WONDERS, and DESTRUCTION of the Egyptians while bringing HIS People out of bondage.

 

“And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.”   Joshua 2:9 - 11

 

Our GOD of Israel wants us to remember the PASSOVER out of Egypt, so that we will look to HIM, Our ONLY SAVIOR and appreciate what HE has done in bringing them out and in keeping HIS Promise to give them the Land of Canaan.  Then, if we remember HIS HAND in their DELIVERANCE, we will also FEAR HIM to do HIS Will to walk uprightly and represent HIM and HIS Walk of Life in Righteousness.

 

Therefore, let us remember that Our GOD of Israel has said that a Righteous Remnant is to return from the “Four Corners of the Earth” this time – not just from Egypt.  And these Israelites and Gentile nations, too, will see GOD’s Mighty HAND and know that there is but ONE CREATOR GOD – The GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and that HIS Peace and Happiness will be a part of all peoples lives if they will serve and worship HIM in Truth and in Righteousness for HIS GLORY.

 

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”   Isaiah 11:10 - 12

 

“Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul. For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.”   Jeremiah 32:37 – 42

 

Let the world soon come to know the GOD of Israel for HIS being the CREATOR of this Universe and to PRAISE and SERVE and WORSHIP ONLY HIM, for HE ALONE is the True and Living GOD!

 

Have a Blessed Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in the Holy Name of the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.

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!

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:

 

THE WAKE – UP CALL

 

Resulting from the events in Japan, this country has been a wake-up call for the entire world.  Just when we think we’ve heard about and seen just about every catastrophe possible, the CREATOR GOD lets us know that HE is not done yet with HIS repertoire of Wraths upon the wicked.  We should remember that when the CREATOR Judges people, HE sets HIS Anger upon the whole nation/empire.     Moreover, if the CREATOR will wreak havoc of Japan (and it would appear that there is more to be revealed), then think about the destruction that is to befall countries that took HIS Covenant People into captivity for four hundred years.

 

“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

 

Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.”   Isaiah 13:6,13

 

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

 

“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 the powers-that-be, there will be no way out!

 

“Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments. For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me. Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know. Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.”   Isaiah 47:8 – 15

 

Hence, know that there will be no deliverance for those who choose to remain in countries designated for destruction.  And there is but one hope for Israelites:  FLEE BABYLON and deliver every man his soul.

 

Instead of trying to thwart GOD’s Judgment upon the lands to be destroyed and thinking to be saved by emergency supplies in these places, get out, as we have been warned and go wherever, but get out of Babylon for its days are numbered.  Once again, Our GOD of Israel is proving us to see whether we will follow HIS Commandment or not.  If we ignore what’s written in Jeremiah 50th and 51st Chapters, the Holy ONE of Israel will have proved that we do not FEAR HIM but choose to continue following our own ways.  As we know, neglecting GOD’s WORD and following our own ways has always led to assured punishment and even death.

 

 

OIL, OIL, OIL

IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD

 

THE POWER OF OIL.  HMMM.  The US isn’t spearheading this call for help out of Libya because of the oil, are they?  Of course not, silly!  The US is helping the Libyan rebels in order that the President of Egypt, Gadaffi, will stop massacring the Libyan people.  Now, that’s quite humanitarian of the US. 

 

But what about the Palestinians who have lost their lands to these humongous walls and are shot at every turn by Israeli settlers and bombed by the Israeli army to keep these people impoverished and with an infrastructure that looks like Hell.  And oh yes, don’t let me neglect to mention how the Israelis bulldoze Palestinian farms and homes, day in and day out.  Surely, the US will help the Palestinians, also, right?  NO, wrong!  Scratch that!  The Palestinians don’t have any oil, and besides the atrocities committed against the Palestinians are done with US consent and with US tax dollars making tax payers accomplices in this violation of Palestinian rights.

 

Okay, but where is the United Nations?  They believe in freedom and in human rights for all.  Take a look at how the Palestinians live in Gaza, and you will know where the UN is.

 

Not until the CREATOR GOD takes back HIS Universe, HIS Earth, HIS Holy Land, HIS Covenant People and Judges the wicked will there be HIS Peace and HIS Happiness upon HIS Earth!  And then oil, if we continue to use it, will be distributed fairly and without greedy intentions.

MARK?

WHAT MARK?

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.”

At a time when people fear for their lives because of the many disasters and the growing possibilities of a nuclear war, it is time to seek explanations that make sense.  Therefore, read the WORD OF GOD that has been hidden for millennia in order that the reign of the heathen may be fulfilled.  Read THUS SAITH THE LORD for knowledge and understanding, as all the world watches GOD’s WONDROUS WORKS unfold bringing an end to the corruption and evils that fill the Earth HE CREATED!

 

IT IS GOD’s TURN NOW!

WATCH

AS HE TAKES BACK HIS UNIVERSE,

CALLS ATTENTION TO HIMSELF,

AND

CAUSES ALL TO KNOW HIM AND HIS TRUTH!

 

THE CREATOR GOD WILL BE EXALTED AND

BILLIONS WILL BOW ONLY TO HIM!

 

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

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

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

the order of each and every day prove to be the Truth of this matter.

[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, 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.

 “And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law,

and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 2:3

 

“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you:

and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 

And I will give you pastors according to mine heart,

which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

Jeremiah 3:14,15

 

“At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem:

neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. 

In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel,

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

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

Jeremiah 3:17,18

 

IF WE SINCERELY WANT TO BE A RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE, THEN

WE MUST FOLLOW AND LIVE GOD’S RIGHTEOUS LAW,

AND TO CHANGE EVEN ONE LETTER OF THIS DIVINE LAW

IS TO MINIMIZE THE SIGNIFICANCE AND PURPOSE OF GOD’S

ALREADY DECLARED PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

 

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid,

that the temple might be built.”

Be wise to know that Our GOD gives us wisdom and knowledge when we keep HIS LAW!

Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”

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.

 

Now, here is where the GOD’s Truth explodes brilliantly:

 

“And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:”   Deuteronomy 28:64,65

 

“Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god thatcannot save.”   Isaiah 45:20

 

“Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. 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. To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish. Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth. They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.”   Jeremiah 6:18 – 23

 

“I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.”   Jeremiah 9:16

 

“Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.”   Jeremiah 13:24

 

“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.”   Jeremiah 17:7

 

“A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.”   Ezekiel 5:12

 

“Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries. And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.”   Ezekiel 6:8,9

 

“And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.”   Ezekiel 12:15

 

“And all his fugitives with all his bands shall fall by the sword, and they that remain shall be scattered toward all winds: and ye shall know that I the LORD have spoken it.”   Ezekiel 17:21

 

“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 20:23,24

 

“Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.”   Jeremiah 10:11

 

GOD’s WORD came to pass.  HE scattered HIS People into captivity into the hands of heathens, who even now control this world of savage evils and untold wickedness, for the Children of Israel defying HIM and for turning to false gods.  And, as HE said would happen, the Israelites became Slaves and lost their identity.  It was at this time that the same heathens, the people GOD said would be the enemies of HIS rebellious People, took the Israelites (and all Blacks) as Slaves and converted them to the false religion - Christianity - to ensure that they would never call upon the GOD of Israel again.  Since the Slave Masters converted Blacks to this false religion, Blacks have devoted the pagan “Sunday” to worship of singing and praising this man-god, JC, who has done absolutely nothing to end the misery and suffering of Black folks.  And if they say otherwise, they delude themselves.

 

Thus, since we know that the GOD of Israel said that our wicked forefathers would be scattered into the hands of our enemies and heathens, then how can Israelites accept with conviction this religion that our cruel and barbaric captors have bestowed upon us?  Israelites were Commanded to separate themselves from the Canaanites and not marry them or give their sons and daughters to them in marriage, all because these people worshipped false gods and lived heathenish lives.  And the GOD of Israel knew that once they joined unto the Canaanites that they would worship their gods and forget HIM and HIS Righteous Walk of Life.

 

“And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”   Deuteronomy 7:2 – 6

 

Therefore, if the GOD of Israel said HE would cast us into the hands of our enemies/heathens (as HE certainly did), the last thing we should do after coming into the knowledge of HIM and HIS Truth is embrace their religions. 

 

The Slave Masters had a fool-proof plan for converting their Slaves to Christianity.  It was to make the Slaves believe in life and freedom in heaven and to continue with their miserable and oppressive fate without rebellion.  The Slave Masters had tasted economic gain, power, and superiority over Black Peoples, and thus, their greed and thirst for continued wealth was their every desire and their reason for living.  To have their Slaves believe in a false god was a welcomed idea, especially if it would advance and facilitate their agendas.  And they knew that if their Slaves turned to the CREATOR GOD of Moses, that HE would save them just like HE Delivered the Children of Israel out of their captivity.  The Slavers’ Plan worked well, too well, because now, these Blacks won’t let that fraudulent religion go.

 

Let the Children of Israel believe in THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL and in the things we know.

 

We know:

- We know that there is but ONE CREATOR GOD, and HE is the GOD of     Jacob/Israel.

- The GOD of Israel will gather HIS Covenant People from the “Four Corners of the Earth”.

- The GOD of Israel will take HIS People into the Wilderness.

- The GOD of Israel will return the SEED of Jacob to our heritage that HE promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the    people of HIS Name’s Sake.

- The GOD of Israel is OUR ONLY SAVIOR and REDEEMER!

- ONLY the CREATOR GOD that brought these curses upon us for our transgressions against HIM has the ability to end the  suffering and affliction that we endure.

- Calling upon the ONE True GOD of Jacob/Israel and following HIS Ways of Righteousness is our only means of SALVATION.

 

It is easy for us to be numbered among the Righteous Remnant, but is only possible if we are serious and want this with all our heart, soul, and might.  And then it will only come to fruition if we embrace the GOD of Israel and walk HIS Righteous Paths.

 

“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

 

“For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

 

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.   Isaiah 43:3,11

 

These are all the more reasons why Israelites who love the GOD of Israel with all their heart, soul, and might should be striving to leave out of the countries that hold them in captivity, as well as seek after Our GOD of Israel to again show HIS Mighty HAND in our DELIVERANCE and our RE-ESTABLISHMENT for HIS Holy Name’s Sake. 

 

“And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say, The LORD will be magnified from the border of Israel.

 

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 1:5,11

 

As we now know all too well, Our GOD of Israel will indeed punish us if we do not serve and worship ONLY HIM.  We should realize that HE will hold us accountable to the Covenant Joshua and our forefathers made to serve and make HIM Our GOD.

 

“Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you. When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.”   Joshua 23:15,16

 

Why believe the JEALOUS GOD of Israel that was against serving and worshipping other gods is now promoting the worship of this man-god, JC?  Where in the Hebrew Scriptures is such a thing found in HIS WORDS?  If the GOD of Israel was against the worship of other gods when the Israelites were in the Land of Israel, then for sure HE is against Israelites worshipping false gods in the lands of their captivity.  The First Commandment makes worship of the ONE GOD of Israel perfectly clear. 

 

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”   Exodus 20:1 - 6

 

THINK!  The CREATOR GOD scattered HIS People from the Land of Israel for rejecting HIM for false gods!  Shouldn’t we be looking to HIM for Deliverance and for SALVATION?

 

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.

Jeremiah 31:10

 

“If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good. And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the LORD. And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses. Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel. And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey. So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem. And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.”   Joshua 24:20 - 27

 

“But 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

 

WE (AND ALL PEOPLES) HAVE GOOD REASON TO HOPE IN THE GOD OF ISRAEL:

 

“…the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.”   Isaiah 56:6 - 8

 

“…Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.”   Ezekiel 11:16,17

 

“But 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

 

GOD’s WORD IS CLEAR; HE IS OUR GOD AND SAVIOR!

 

HENCE, WE DON’T NEED JC!

 

And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Jeremiah 30:22

 

Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders. And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me. Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.   Isaiah 49:22 - 26

 

Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.   Jeremiah 31:2 - 4

 

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.  Jeremiah 31:6 – 10

 

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. And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD. Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD,  that thy children shall come again to their own border.   Jeremiah 31:11 – 17

 

For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.  Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.   Ezekiel 36:24 - 28

 

And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.  Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.   Ezekiel 36:35 - 38

 

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

 

And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward. 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. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.   Ezekiel 39:21 – 29

 

THE JEALOUS GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB

WILL HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY!!!

 

Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant, Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance; When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it. And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people; He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place. Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth. Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein. Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

EXPOUNDING ON WHEN THE CREATOR’s 24-HOUR DAY BEGINS:

 

I happen to be talking with my husband regarding when each new day begins.  And his input was much like that of Brother Kweli’s.  In essence, he said:

 

In The BEGINNING there was only “Darkness.”  Therefore, because “Darkness” preceded “Light,” it stands to reason why the “darkness,” which was initially first, begins the new day and not the “morning.” 

 

“In the beginning…darkness was upon the face of the deep…  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”   Genesis 1:1 - 3

 

In my opinion, adding to this belief is the CREATOR’s pronouncement of the use of “Darkness,” or rather evening, when ending and beginning each new day:

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”   Genesis1:8 - 31

 

If we cannot recognize when to begin our 24-hour days, how then can we observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbaths to rest and be refreshed, and how then are we to observe HIS Holy Feast Days, as we are Commanded?  Hence, it behooves us to read GOD’s WORD and take note of all the Scriptures as to when our forefathers observed each new day.  The information is there, if we will only accept it.  There are several specific passages that cannot be ignored. 

 

Genesis First Chapter is already suggested.  Another passage is in Judges where Samson tells the Philistines to solve his riddle “within seven days.”  And “on the Seventh Day before the sun went down,” the Philistines told him the meaning of his riddle.  Point being that the Philistines knew that had they waited until AFTER sundown, then they would have been in the Eighth Day and too late to receive the reward Samson had promised them (Judges 14th Chapter).

 

More evidence is in Nehemiah 13th Chapter.  Nehemiah is angered by people profaning the Holy Seventh Day by selling their wares to the stiffnecked Israelites who did not hesitate to buy them.  So, “…when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark BEFORE THE SABBATH,” Nehemiah “commanded that the gates should be shut…”  Hence, Nehemiah wanted to prepare for the impending Holy Seventh Day to be sure that no sins would be committed after sundown, which is when the Sabbath or Seventh Day would obviously begin.  Again, this is more evidence that the new day begins at sundown/evening/darkness. 

 

I would be remiss if I did not also include the fact that Scripture is clear on Passover and the Day of Atonement beginning in the evening at sundown. 

 

PASSOVER:   “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.”   Exodus 12:18

 

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT:   “It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.”   Leviticus23:32 

 

The GOD of Israel is and always has been consistent in teaching us HIS Commandments.  HE would not tell us to begin some Holy Days at sundown and to begin other days in the morning.  There is nothing intelligent about such a directive – only confusion.  T.Y., Editor

“For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

 

Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?

wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail,

and all faces are turned into paleness?

 

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble;

but he shall be saved out of it.

 

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.

 

Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed,

 O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity;

and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.”

Does Obama Owe Anything to the Black Community?

Does the Black President Owe Anything to the Black Community?

Tue, 03/15/2011

— Kamau Franklin

For the first time in generations, a presidential election campaign saw virtually no demands from the Black side of the electorate. Two years into Barack Obama's term, a code of silence remains in force. "Are we so wrapped up in the symbolism of a black president that we can't hold him accountable to the demands of a community that voted for him upwards of 97%?" And why this peculiar behavior by Black people? "Other communities don't give up their right to make demands on political leaders they vote for."

This article originally appeared on Mr. Franklin's web site.

"Did the black community give up its rights to make demands because the president is black?"

Recently I read several articles from black intellectuals, pundits and politicians whose goal, it seems, is to inform black people that Obama is not the president of "black America" but of "all America." Therefore, they argue that we should not expect him to do anything "special" for the black community. A byproduct of this is to let us know that any sentence that has the words "Obama," "black" and "demands" – except if it states "Obama demands Black people…" – is a no-no and you will be branded with the number one insult in the black community (besides being labeled a snitch): "a hata." I have great respect for some of these authors because of their history of work in our community. Yet there are other writers that think that if they stand next to two or more black people, they are in the ghetto and need to make a move before some gang shit happens. However, they all insinuate that to make demands or to criticize Obama makes you a hata. I would rather be a hater than a fool; the President owes the black community, not the other way around.

To be honest, anyone who knows me realizes that I am not a supporter of the US government; yes, I've burned a few flags in my day. I think that in the long-term, black people must control the political and economic institutions that hold sway over our lives. In the short and medium term, I strongly believe that anytime you pay taxes to a government entity, you have a right to make demands on how those taxes are spent. If the system says "vote for me and I will do the people's bidding," (you know, a representative democracy) then you have a right to demand that the elected official(s) you hire work in your interest. There may be other interests, other promises that also have to be fulfilled, but that does not mean your demands or needs as a community should be ignored.

"The President owes the black community, not the other way around."

Since when does making demands on a politician make you the sell-out? Are we so wrapped up in the symbolism of a black president that we can't hold him accountable to the demands of a community that voted for him upwards of 97%? Did the black community give up its rights to make demands because the president is black? That seems to be the argument that is being articulated by black mainstream pundits. It's the familiar Democratic refrain that usually comes from white Democrats: don't speak up too much because it will scare white folks. So instead we should remain silent, even as white folks are already scared that they are "losing their country" to the Muslim socialist from Kenya. But if the vast majority of the voting black community pulled the lever for him, then they should expect something back besides some speeches and chastisement on failing to be good parents.

Other communities don't give up their right to make demands on political leaders they vote for. Latino communities have made demands on immigration reform; the gay community has made demands on changing "don't ask don't tell"; Wall Street and the ruling class make demands – well, they really control the joint so that may not be accurate – and Jewish communities make demands for Israel (formerly the homeland to a few million Palestinians). Obama himself speaks eloquently on equal rights for women. Without any prodding, he uses his daughters as examples of why it's important to create an equal playing ground in education and career opportunities. His first act was to sign into law equal pay rights for women (which is of course needed). This is not to suggest that some demands that are made don't affect members of the black community, it is to point out that the demands are not led by black groups and leaders professing them to be part of a black agenda. No one says that any of the above groups have no right to make demands. People are skeptical that some of these demands will actually be met, but no one suggests that the communities or constituencies is "hatin" because the demands were made.

"Jesse Jackson was probably the last of the black mainstream pundits, politicians and intellectuals to have a sincere platform of black demands."

The question that is asked by the mainstream black pundits is: does the black community have demands? We are not monolithic so there are no "black" demands. Haven't we heard this tired line long enough? As if the leading social indicators of lack of wealth, poverty, health care, housing, unemployment and incarceration don't scream of the groundwork for coherent demands for any group. There is not a negative social or economic indicator in which black people have not been at the bottom of since well, slavery. Jesse Jackson was probably the last of the black mainstream pundits, politicians and intellectuals to have a sincere platform of black demands. It was Jesse who led the demand for an urban Marshal plan to rebuild the cities where black people live and create jobs. Other coherent black demands that can be made include school and police decentralization, having parents and community members have a real say in who gets hired and fired in the classroom and in the precinct. The government could offer block grants to facilitate the turning over of public housing to the residents to create a layer of wealth as opposed to destroying this housing. The creation of land trusts to keep housing stable in various communities. More moderate demands could be set asides for black business or businesses that employ a certain amount of so-called minorities. More federally sponsored health clinics in black communities to deal with issues including infant mortality. There are many more, this is just a sampling of demands that could be made.

Most are not new, they are demands from our movements in the 60's and 70s and even prior to this. When some uncritically attack that history they do so at our peril. It was then that we were at the height of our understanding of what needed to happen in our community. Coherent demands were being made to the political class while at the same time the call for "nation time" was taking place with serious institution-building being developed. It was then that the movement was killed mafia-style and the various voices silenced, to be slowly replaced by corporate media engineered spokespeople with none of the out molded ideas of black community control instead they offer the power to distract, destroy and separate, aka, the rise of the mainstream Black pundit.

"The movement was killed mafia-style and the various voices silenced, to be slowly replaced by corporate media engineered spokespeople."

The black middle class, what there is of it, falling back down to the ghetto after the foreclosure of your house, how y'all doin? We missed some of y'all in Albany Projects in the BK! Nice to see ya, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. Don't complain though, don't be hatas, just put a picture of the president on your wall. Now doesn't that feel better? Hey! Last hired first fired black working class, those unemployment numbers look like the Jefferson's, "movin on up" to depression era highs, but keep that ass quiet. Don't hate just cause you can't find a job! Here…wear this Obama t-shirt until you figure out a way to buy some new clothes. Hey poor people, well ya'll was fucked anyway, so keep it quiet while you are getting profiled. Be like Skip Gates and just get a beer with the cop after his shift, don't sue or anything that may bring attention. Here, wear this Obama button, it may stop a bullet, we got a symbol to protect.

These Black mainstream identifiers of what time it is groom their opinions to appear relevant to corporate media to be safe and within the margins of debate. Their job is to continuously tell you that there are no black demands, only the liberal wing of the Democratic Party speaks for us. Most importantly, they don't defend the right of black people to control and own the economics and politics in our community. Rarely if ever do we hear statements about building black-run and -controlled institutions, about ownership, about black demands on elected officials. They tell us that we must debate these things like good moderates who have no racial interest anymore. We would not want to lose that paycheck and speak truth to power anymore, because power pays.

Such an intellectually dishonest position, but for some it pays the bills. And when we are tired of defending the symbol of hope, they tell us to move on to other important newsworthy topics in black life. I love the new kings of Hip-Hop and R&B – Eminem and Justin Bieber. Well maybe we got some shows on BET. Wait, I think it has been about a decade since that was black-owned, but I think the programming is better – hmm…. Whew, there is always Oprah. Hey, if we can only stop saying nigga, we would be alright. I guess all we have is the symbolism of a black president we hold onto so tight until that moment, every now and then, that you remember you can't eat it or put it on a resume so at the end of the day it's just a feel good brain fuck.

"Here, wear this Obama button, it may stop a bullet, we got a symbol to protect."

Meanwhile, who has the most serious movement-making demands as our black mainstreamers talk it up and we let ourselves and those who speak about us push us into this box of just being grateful to have a black president – the rich and the majority of the white working class. Look at the crazies in white America (and they are crazy) both rich and poor shaking up the Republican Party, making demands for smaller government, lower taxes, reducing the debt, keeping their guns and kicking that symbol (how many ways can they say "nigger" without using the word) out of office. Look at the Republican Party going nuts (and they are nuts) to accommodate these constituents. I have not read any story that asks the question: who are these white tea partiers to make demands on the government? People may think they are being brought and paid for – and they are. Some on the left may think that the white working class is turning against their class interests, and they are, but no one suggests they don't have interest. The white working class has always had demands, nine out of ten times those demands make a right, not left, turn and it's easy to explain – the left don't have jobs to offer or a special place for the white working class to think they're closer to God than anyone else, especially you-know-who. The white working class sides with the money most of the time.

The black community, which is historically to the left of the majority of white people (that's why the communists always have us on the cover of their pap
