The South Shall Rise Again!

Few people are willing to admit that the civil war didn't have anything to do with freeing slaves, and that Abraham Lincoln was a racist.  The driving force behind anything that the United States of America has ever done historically was and is for the benefit of the slave holders that established this country.  The hypocrisy of the U.S. is that the majority, if not all, of the founding fathers of this nation were at one time or another slave holders.  The “Three-Fifth's Compromise” is a prime example of how freedom for the slaves was the least of the concerns of the leaders of this country:

"The Three-Fifths Compromise, an agreement to count three-fifths of a state's slaves in apportioning Representatives, Presidential electors, and direct taxes.

The three-fifths figure was the outgrowth of a debate that had taken place within the Continental Congress in 1783. The Articles of Confederation had apportioned taxes not according to population but according to land values. The states consistently undervalued their land in order to reduce their tax burden. To rectify this situation, a special committee recommended apportioning taxes by population. The Continental Congress debated the ratio of slaves to free persons at great length. Northerners favored a 4-to-3 ratio, while southerners favored a 2-to-1 or 4-to-1 ratio. Finally, James Madison suggested a compromise: a 5-to-3 ratio. All but two states--New Hampshire and Rhode Island--approved this recommendation. But because the Articles of Confederation required unanimous agreement, the proposal was defeated. When the Constitutional Convention met in 1787, it adopted Madison's earlier suggestion.

The taxes that the Three-Fifths Compromise dealt with were "direct" taxes, as opposed to excise or import taxes. It was not until 1798 that Congress imposed the first genuine direct taxes in American history: a tax on dwelling-houses and a

tax on slaves aged 12 to 50. The Three-Fifths Compromise greatly augmented southern political power. In the Continental Congress, where each state had an equal vote, there were only five states in which slavery was a major institution. Thus the southern states had about 38 percent of the seats in the Continental Congress. Because of the 1787 Three-Fifths Compromise, the southern states had nearly 45 percent of the seats in the first U.S. Congress, which took office in 1790.

It is ironic that it was a liberal northern delegate, James Wilson of Pennsylvania, who proposed the Three-Fifths Compromise, as a way to gain southern support for a new framework of government. Southern states had wanted representation apportioned by population; after the Virginia Plan was rejected, the Three-Fifths Compromise seemed to guarantee that the South would be strongly represented in the House of Representatives and would have disproportionate power in electing Presidents.

Over the long term, the Three-Fifths Compromise did not work as the South anticipated. Since the northern states grew more rapidly than the South, by 1820, southern representation in the House had fallen to 42 percent. Nevertheless, from Jefferson's election as President in 1800 to the 1850s, the three-fifths rule would help to elect slaveholding Presidents. Southern political power increasingly depended on the Senate, the President, and the admission of new slaveholding states."

 

Brother Ezrah Aharone has once again provided us with a thought provoking article.   This time Brother Aharone comments on the Virginia governor's proclamation of last month as a celebration to the confederacy.

Confederate History Month

 

Next year in April commemorates the 150th anniversary of America’s Civil War.  So under the pretext to “encourage tourism” in Virginia, which has over 100 Confederate monuments, GOP Governor Bob McDonnell dusted-off an old proclamation that declares April as “Confederate History Month.”  Not only did he revive it, he removed a clause stating “that slavery was one of the causes” of the war.

 

President Obama called this “an unacceptable omission,” while members of Virginia’s Legislative Black Caucus said the document was “offensive, one-sided, and a revision of history.”  GOP Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi, who declared April as “Confederate Heritage Month” in a similar proclamation which also excluded slavery, said all the fuss “doesn’t amount to diddly.”  But McDonnell apologized and amended Virginia’s proclamation to include and condemn slavery. 

 

The real problem here however, supercedes the omissions and one-sidedness of any single proclamation, including Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.  American history is largely promoted with slanted, bravado narratives of nationalism, whereby the means are always vindicated by glorification of the end.  And when it comes to the historiography of slavery, a taboo-blame of racism is transferred upon African Americans who veer from sugarcoated viewpoints. 

 

As such, Americans are made to think that the Civil War was fought to end the Confederate immoralities of slavery.  But based on unquestioned racism that lasted well into the 1960s, it’s illogical that millions of Whites would actually fight and slaughter 624,000 of themselves over the rights of Blacks way back in the 1860s.  If the Emancipation Proclamation was really predicated upon America’s “goodness of democracy,” why would Democrats and Republicans turnaround and willfully legislate a full century of segregation after so much self-bloodshed?

On the surface, this outlook certainly qualifies for a transferred taboo-blame of racism.  But to lend historical validation, consider a quote from President Obama himself.  As then-senator, he commented to Time Magazine (June 25, 2005) that: “I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.  I am fully aware of his limited views on race.  Anyone who actually reads the Emancipation Proclamation knows it was more a Military Document than a clarion call for justice.

 

Speaking of “omissions and one-sidedness” in proclamations . . . Instead of mandating a unilateral “Military Document” (signed only by him and his Secretary of State), Lincoln and representatives of our forebearers should have jointly agreed and formally signed a binding “Bilateral Accord” that satisfied the ideals and demands of the 4 million “Emancipated” people in question.  That would have been the honorable, non-racist, democratic thing for any offending government to do after nearly 250 years of enslavement.

 

What’s lasting and telling about this affront and disingenuous nature of the Emancipation Proclamation, is the unspoken but undeniable lack of affinity and familiarity that African Americans hold towards it today.  Although it presumably represents our long-awaited “triumph over slavery,” it’s hard to find a Black person who can recite a complete phrase from it.  Simply ask around and you’ll find proof yourself. 

 

The unedited truth is that Lincoln ended slavery in the Confederacy for the same reason it was instituted – to make capitalism more functional.  By the 1860s the Industrial Revolution was in gear.  Northern industrial businesses would outperform Southern agrarian businesses, making it necessary to restructure labor, commerce, and capital investments.  Paying low wages to Black industrial laborers therefore made better economic sense and great social policy for a more civilized face of government.  

 

But since Southern states stood to lose billions in property (enslaved) assets and wealth, the Confederates sought secession and war became an unavoidable consequence of this industrial shift.  While a Confederate victory would have definitely prolonged slavery, this should not be politically misconstrued into the notion that Lincoln’s fight against secession was thereby a fight for the justice of abolition. 

 

To believe that the principal of the Civil War was to “free” Africans from the Confederates is as inaccurate as thinking the current war in Afghanistan is being fought to free Afghans from the Taliban.  Although Afghans may eventually be liberated from Taliban influences as a by-product of the war, the underlying purpose and politics of the conflict are immensely more far-reaching.  And likewise were the driving circumstances between the Civil War and the by-product of Emancipation.

 

But since the facts of American history are slanted with narratives to glorify American democracy, the Civil War is framed to unduly credit and equate the Union with noble motives.  So it’s acceptable to place taboo-blames of racism on supporters of Confederate History Month, since Confederates resided on the opposite side of the war.  Yet, the prevailing miss-characterizations surrounding Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation, now cause African Americans to reside on the opposite side of the truth.

 

By Ezrah Aharone 4/10

 

The following is a copy of the Emancipation  Proclamation.  I think President Obama was right in his 2005 statement to Times Magazine (the theme of this document is military preparedness for rebellion):

A Proclamation.

"Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:

"That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the

Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

"That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States."

Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit:

Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued.

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons.

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages.

And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service.

And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh."

By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN

WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.

So there we have it; the Three-Fifth's Compromise, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil War were not primarily intended to free the slaves and Abraham Lincoln was not the Great Emancipator.  Hummmm......maybe Governor McDonnell and Governor Barbour are correct Confederate History Month is not about slavery it's about the racist history of the United States of America.

Tribute to the New Moon Revised:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

shall remain before me, saith the LORD,

so shall your seed and your name remain.

 

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

and from one sabbath to another,

shall all flesh come to worship before me,

saith the LORD.”

START THE NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF

 

<<< MAY 14,15,16, 2010 >>>

 

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

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons…”

Psalm 104:19

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

***

 

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

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

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

on our solemn feast day.

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

Psalm 81:1 – 4

 

(A Psalm of Asaph, the Seer –

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

 

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

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

Numbers 10:10

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

I Kings 3:15

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

 

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,

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

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

for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth,

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

Exodus 31:17,18

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

and the commandment, which he wrote for you,

he shall observe to do for ever more;

and ye shall not fear other gods.”

II Kings 17:36,37

 

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

 

“REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY”

Exodus 20:8

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

CONCERNING “HOLY CONVOCATION”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

QUESTIONS ON “OLD TESTAMENT” BIBLE TRIVIA TO PONDER:

 

 

QUESTIONS THREE:

 

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

 

If you Fear the GOD of Israel, and you seek to return, name three things we must do to get HIS attention and why?

 

***

 

"And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not."   Exodus 20:20

 

When the Children of Israel were in the Wilderness, the GOD of Israel used HIS Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST to prove them.  What do you think the Holy ONE will use this time to prove us, or should HE use HIS Holy Seventh Day again?

 

***

 

How long after coming out of Egypt did the Children of Israel have to wait before the GOD of Israel gave them Manna?  Was it mere days, a week, a month, or a year?

QUESTION AND ANSWER:

 

THE CREATOR GOD's SABBATH SIGN

BETWEEN HIM AND HIS PEOPLE, ISRAEL

 

"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." 

 

What is the connection between the CREATOR GOD's Holy Sabbath of Complete REST and this Day being a "Sign" between HIM and HIS People, the Nation of Israel?   Let's first look at all the Biblical facts on this topic:

 

"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."   Exodus 31:13

 

"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 32:47

 

"… I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. "   Ezekiel 20:11,12

 

"I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God."   Ezekiel 20:19,20

 

I have pondered this question and this "Sign" between GOD and HIS People the Children of Israel for quite a while but never included Genesis the First Chapter, the true crux of our resting on GOD's Holy Seventh Day, for a full understanding.  Therefore, before contemplating the answer to this question, it is first important to consider the reason for observing the Law of the Seventh Day.  The CREATOR's Holy Seventh Day is the Anniversary of HIS Day of REST after taking six days to Create the Heavens and the Earth and all things 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 God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."   Genesis 1:26 – 28

 

"Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby. For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy."   Leviticus 11:43 – 45

 

I have long since said that the people Created in Genesis 1:26 – 28 are the Israelites in whom the CREATOR GOD of Israel will put HIS LAW (Jeremiah 31:31 – 34).  This is that "Great Nation" the GOD of Israel had told HIS Prophet Moses about (Exodus 32:10).  These people in the First Chapter of Genesis were not only Blessed, but they were made in GOD's Image – unlike the people the CREATOR formed from the dust of the Earth, who were cursed. 

 

We well know that just because people are made in the CREATOR's Image that still no one can be compared to HIM – not even HIS Covenant People.  And indeed, the Israelites did not and will never have the CREATOR's Powers no matter how much Divine LAW is in our hearts.  However, if the CREATOR makes Israel in HIS Image and Blesses them, then and only then can we be considered a "Holy" People unto Our CREATOR GOD of Israel and in HIS Image.

 

Therefore, the connection between the CREATOR GOD of Israel and HIS Holy Sabbath Day of Complete REST stems from CREATION, when the CREATOR establishes a "Holy" People.  That "Holy" People in Genesis First Chapter are the very reason the CREATOR GOD of Israel will never alter HIS LAW and exactly why HE will put it in our hearts so that we will live and do it "for ever".  It was HIS LAW that made the People in Genesis First Chapter in the CREATOR's Image.  And because these People were a part of the CREATION, this is what connects them to the Sabbath "Sign" that exists between the CREATOR GOD of Israel and HIS Covenant People.

 

By the way, the people formed in Genesis Second Chapter cannot be the people in the First Chapter.  Reason being, the Scripture plainly states, "…and there was not a man to till the ground (Genesis 2:5)".

 

Yes, I know; you can't see it.  But just ask yourself, what else qualifies the CREATOR's LAW to be Our "Life"?  And doesn't GOD's Law of the Holy Sabbath Day condemn all who defile it to death?  THINK about the significance of the CREATOR making this Seventh Day Holy!  If the CREATOR's Holy Sabbath stems from CREATION, then it stands to reason why the CREATOR, HIMSELF, makes this Day a "Sign" between HIM and HIS People (Genesis 1:26), the Children of Israel.  Take note that it was the CREATOR that established this "Sign" between HIMSELF and these "Special" People that HE made in the very BEGINNING.

 

At least we should all realize the profound significance of understanding why it is so very important and necessary to observe GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath at Complete REST and to observe ALL HIS Righteous Book of the Law (HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments) without adding to or diminishing from them.  We should never forget that with all the other CREATIONS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, as well was Created in the BEGINNING along with that Glorious "Sign" between the CREATOR GOD of Israel and HIS Covenant People!  Again, now you can see why the CREATOR GOD cannot and will not change HIS "Perfect" LAW.

 

"I will worship toward thy holy temple,

and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth:

for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."

Psalm 138:2

 

"…I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."  

Malachi 3:6

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.

Niacin, a B vitamin, has long been used to increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the "good" cholesterol. HDL cholesterol helps sweep up low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, in your bloodstream. Although niacin is readily available and effective, it hasn't gotten much attention compared to other cholesterol drugs.

A lot of the attention regarding cholesterol has been focused on lowering your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol. That's still an important goal. But boosting your HDL level can be just as important as lowering your LDL cholesterol. Taking niacin — either by itself or along with other cholesterol-lowering medication — may help control your total cholesterol level.

What is niacin?

Niacin (nicotinic acid) is a B vitamin that's used by your body to turn carbohydrates into energy. Niacin also helps keep your nervous system, digestive system, skin, hair and eyes healthy. That's why niacin is often a part of a daily multivitamin, though most people get enough niacin from the food they eat.

You may see niacin labeled in different ways. As part of a multivitamin or supplement, it's often just referred to as niacin. When it's used as a treatment to increase your HDL cholesterol or correct a niacin deficiency, it's sold in higher doses that are prescribed by your doctor. Some common brand names of prescription niacin include:

Niaspan

Niacor

Slo-Niacin

Niacin is found in many foods, including:

Dairy products

Lean meats

Poultry

Fish

Nuts

Eggs

Enriched breads and cereals

Niacin is also available in a variety of different forms as either prescription medication or over-the-counter supplements. However, don't take niacin — even in the over-the-counter form — without discussing it with your doctor first because niacin can cause side effects when taken in high doses.

What impact does niacin have on cholesterol?

Niacin can raise HDL — the "good" cholesterol — by 15 to 35 percent. This makes niacin the most effective drug available for raising HDL cholesterol. While niacin's effect on HDL is of most interest, it's worth noting that niacin also decreases your LDL and triglyceride levels. High levels of LDL and triglycerides are significant risk factors for heart disease.

Why is having a high HDL cholesterol level important?

HDL, or "good," cholesterol picks up excess bad cholesterol in your blood and takes it back to your liver for disposal. The higher your HDL cholesterol, the less bad cholesterol you'll have in your blood.

Cholesterol levels are measured in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or millimoles per liter (mmol/L):

For men, HDL levels under 40 mg/dL or 1 mmol/L increase the risk of heart disease.

For women, HDL levels under 50 mg/dL or 1.3 mmol/L increase the risk of heart disease.

An HDL level above 60 mg/dL or 1.6 mmol/L is considered ideal for men or women.

Having a low HDL level by itself is a risk factor for developing heart disease. That means even if your LDL and other risk factors are normal, having a low HDL level still increases your risk of heart disease.

What about niacin side effects, like flushing?

Niacin comes in a variety of forms, ranging from fast-acting forms to those that are longer acting. Some forms of niacin, especially in high doses — 1,000 milligrams or more — do cause temporary flushing of the skin. The flushing can make your skin redden and possibly feel warm to the touch. While annoying, this flushing isn't harmful. If you have flushing, talk to your doctor about taking an aspirin shortly before you take your niacin. Aspirin can counteract this flushing effect. Also, avoiding hot drinks and alcohol can decrease the flushing. Versions of niacin with reduced flushing effects also are available by prescription.

Other possible side effects include:

Upset stomach

Headache

Dizziness

Liver damage

Increased blood sugar

However, your doctor may be able to find the right dose and form of niacin that minimizes side effects. Also, taking niacin with food may help prevent side effects. Remember, don't take niacin — even in the over-the-counter form — without discussing it with your doctor first. Niacin can cause side effects when taken in high doses.

Who might consider taking niacin?

It depends. Niacin has been shown to increase HDL in otherwise healthy people who have normal LDL levels, so your doctor might suggest you take niacin, even if your LDL is relatively normal and you're healthy.

However, don't start taking niacin to raise your HDL without talking to your doctor. Niacin must usually be given at high doses to raise your HDL cholesterol, and the use of high-dose niacin needs to be monitored by your doctor to make sure it doesn't cause any harmful side effects.

Lifestyle changes are also helpful in boosting HDL. These include:

Stop smoking if you are a smoker.

Eat a healthy diet.

Start an exercise program, with your doctor's OK.

If you try steps like this and your HDL is still too low, your doctor may suggest you take niacin.

Niacin is usually given along with statins or other medications to people who have high LDL levels and low HDL. Check with your doctor before taking niacin with another medication to avoid any dangerous drug interactions. However, in general, niacin seems to work even better when used in combination with statins, drugs used to lower your LDL cholesterol. In fact, when used with some statins, niacin can increase your HDL level by 50 percent or more, as well as reduce LDL levels more than when just statins are used.

Are over-the-counter niacin supplements just as good as prescription niacin when it comes to increasing HDL cholesterol?

Possibly. Supplements sold over-the-counter (OTC) are not regulated like prescription medications. The ingredients, formulations and effect of over-the-counter niacin can vary widely. Again, it's necessary to work with your doctor if you are considering taking niacin to avoid harmful side effects.

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

April 26, 2010

 

This Message Exalts the Most High CREATOR GOD of Hosts and HIS Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments and proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that HE ALONE is the ONE True and Living GOD of this Universe with the only true Way of Life to live and do.

 

"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…"   Deuteronomy 32:46,47

 

"I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them."   Ezekiel 20:11,12

 

This Message will also prove that the writers of the "New Testament" contrived an imaginary religion, strictly of their own making, and one that actually defies the WORD OF GOD rather than capitalize upon it.  All who read this Message will soon learn that the CREATOR GOD is the GOD of Israel, that HE is a JEALOUS GOD, that HE wants ALL THE PRAISE (rightly so), and that HE WILL NOT GIVE HIS GLORY TO ANOTHER – not to JC and certainly not to any images made by man!

 

Be we Israelites or Christians we all believe that given the signs of the times, i.e., the "latter days", the intelligent and wise thing to do would be to weigh what THUS SAITH THE LORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets (that does not change) up against the supposedly inspired word of the "New Testament" writers and the multitude of Christian denominations, none of which speak on one accord.  

 

The Most High CREATOR GOD of Heaven and Earth and of all things therein that Commands HIS LAW be kept to a "thousand generations" would not revoke HIS Righteous Way of Life for a Christian religion that promotes the worship of flesh.

 

"For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again."   Psalm 78:39

 

If GOD revoked HIS LAW for the teachings of the "New Testament, then there is no evidence or even a suggestion of HIM ever doing so.  On the contrary, we have GOD, HIMSELF, promising to put HIS LAW in the hearts of HIS People upon their return to their heritage and prophecy promising to magnify this very same LAW.

 

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

 

"I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:"   Psalm 78:2 – 7

 

"The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable."   Isaiah 42:21

 

The "New Testament" magnifies JC, and, thereby, it turns peoples' hearts away from the CREATOR GOD of Israel and away from HIS Book of the Law.  Moreover, the "New Testament" in no way mirrors or even parallels the teaching that the CREATOR GOD gave to HIS Prophet Moses to teach to the Children of Israel.

 

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

 

That which is written in the "New Testament" must be researched, as its content cannot be proved to be GOD's WORD.

 

"For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."   Malachi 3:6

 

Therefore, people with questions must research "Old Testament" and "New Testament" content for credibility, i.e., for that which rings of GOD's WORD and of HIS Truth.  Christians cannot say that they believe in the First Commandment, and then make the CREATOR GOD Jealous by praying to JC.  That makes no sense.

 

"I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me."   Exodus 20:2,3

 

This People whom the CREATOR GOD brought out of Egypt were Black Hebrew Israelites, and their descendants were numbered among the Blacks out of Africa who endured the Slave Trade that scattered them into the four corners of this Earth to fulfill Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters.  However, the CREATOR GOD has not utterly destroyed and forgotten HIS Covenant People or the Land of Israel that HE chose for HIS Holy Name's Sake.  HE is attentive to the prayers of those who seek to know HIS Truth – Israelites and the Stranger.

 

Black so-called "African Americans" are talking and questioning the religion forced upon them by the Slave Masters - the religion that touts a man-god called JC that is supposed to save, but yet enabled those who hated them to perpetuate hundreds of years of heartless enslavement, as well as captivity and race hatred that even has lasted unto this day. 

 

"Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."   Isaiah 45:21,22

 

"Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."   Jeremiah 2:11 – 13

 

"Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased. How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full…."   Jeremiah 5:6,7

 

Yes, finally, Blacks are talking and wondering about the True and Living CREATOR GOD and not without good reason, because for sure something is not right with this Christian religion and also with this world.

 

"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."   Malachi 3:16 – 17

 

The CREATOR GOD speaks of the "Dry Bones" being the "Whole House of Israel".  These are they whose eyes are being opened and the very ones who "Feared the LORD" and who are speaking "one to another".   They are seeking the GOD's Truth, HIS WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets.

 

"Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD."   Ezekiel 37:9 – 14

 

"They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea."   Isaiah 24:14,15

 

GIVEN THE GOD's TRUTH,

WHAT IS REQUIRED OF US TO KNOW GOD

AND TO RETURN TO HIM?

 

The one thing that most intelligent people will admit to is that there is a GOD.  They see this Heaven and Earth and all the wondrous WORKS manifest upon this planet, especially mankind, and they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a SUPREME BEING – OUR MAKER.  And this wisdom and insight is the force behind us that makes us seek TRUTH and knowledge of the ONE GENUINE CREATOR GOD in order to be true to HIM and obedient to HIS WORD for our Salvation and our desire to live.  This SUPREME BEING, OUR MAKER does exist, but it is up to us to decipher the Truth from the deception. 

 

We all know that those in power establish gods that look like them.  That alone is a red flag.  White rulers of this world worship a white, blue-eyed man-god, Chinese and other Asians worship one with slanted eyes, and many peoples of Africa worship gods with their features, as well.   But with the Children of Israel this is not the case.  The GOD of Israel flatly refused to appear before HIS Chosen People in any manner of similitude.  Why?  The reason is that HE knew that if HIS People would see any form of HIM that they would make an image of it and worship it – a serious act of abomination against the GOD of Israel.

 

"And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."   Numbers 21:8,9

 

Many years after the Children of Israel went into the Land of Israel, one of their evil acts was to worship this fiery serpent, which was very much against the teachings of the GOD of Israel. 

 

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

 

It is also important to know that for the same reason, not even GOD's Angels would divulge their names.   The names of angels are only provided in the Book of Daniel and in the Books of the "New Testament".  All these writings have been proven to be suspect, even by Biblical scholars.

 

"And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,"   Deuteronomy 4:12 – 16

 

For whatever reason, people want a god that they can see, and the writers of the "New Testament" have made this possible, but unfortunately, this man, JC, is no god.

 

This CREATOR GOD that appeared before the Children of Israel requires that HIS People live according to HIS Ways because HIS Ways are what sustains them and all who seek to know and follow HIM a "Righteous" people.

 

"And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?"   Deuteronomy 4:12,13

 

"Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;"   Deuteronomy 4:5 – 9

 

THE REAL ISSUES

THAT SHED DOUBT ON THE TEACHINGS OF CHRISTIANITY

 

Virgin Birth

JC: Seed of King David

(by way of Ruth)

JC: King of Israel

JC: A Prophet

JC: Sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel

JC: The Lord and Saviour of the World

JC: No man cometh to the father, but by me

Worship of JC

 

The above issues are what make JC the Christian man-god.  But how true are these beliefs, and is the CREATOR GOD, OUR MAKER in accord with this "New" Christian theology whose debut started at the time of the Roman Era.  It is very important to note and well understood that this Christian religion began hundreds of years after the times of the Prophets who spoke in the Holy Name of the Most High GOD.

 

The Virgin Birth…

Never in the history of the WORD of the CREATOR GOD has there ever been any such birth or even the stretch of such an imagination.

 

It was an Angel who told Samson's mother that she would bear a son (Judges 13th Chapter).

 

The Prophet Elisha told a married, childless woman who had befriended him that she would bear a child (II Kings 4th Chapter). 

 

The women mentioned above had husbands, and their husbands sired their babies.  The "New Testament" portrays a virgin birth, which means that this woman Mary begot a son by way of the "Holy Ghost" and without the male seed of Joseph to whom she was betrothed (Matt. 1:18).  The GOD of Israel would never do such a thing, and indeed HE hasn't.  According to Hebrew LAW, when a woman is betrothed to a man, she is as good as being married to him, for if she sleeps with another man, then she will have committed adultery (Deuteronomy 22:23,24.   The GOD of Israel is well aware of HIS Book of the Law that HE Commands HIS People to follow, so why would HE impregnate a betrothed woman?  None of this makes any sense at all. 

 

JC: Seed of King David

THINK!  If JC is supposed to be born of the "Holy Ghost", whatever that is, then it stands to reason that he could not be of the Seed of King David.  King David came to this Earth by way of his father Jesse's seed, and that would mean by copulation – not of the "Holy Ghost".  King David bare many sons, but only one of them was made heir to the Kingdom.  That was King Solomon.  We should know that at the end of the day, King David's Seed will again reign in Jerusalem upon the return of GOD's Covenant People the Children of Israel.

 

"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 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."   Ezekiel 37:24 – 27

 

There is no suggestion of JC anywhere in these Scriptures.  But we can see why we do need Our GOD of Israel.  It is the GOD of Israel that has made the SEED of Jacob, the Twelve Tribes, HIS Inheritance, and it will be these people who will again Exalt, Magnify, and Worship ONLY HIM in Jerusalem.

 

"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."   I Chronicles 16:25 – 29

 

"O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth."   Psalm 96:9

 

When we FEAR before the True and Living GOD of Israel, we will do HIS Will because we want HIS Love and HIS Protection. 

 

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

 

The "New Testament" teaches that JC is of the Seed of King David by way of Ruth.  This also is not true, and the reason is that Ruth is a Moabite.  The Moabites are a cursed people. And under these circumstances, no seed of Ruth could enter into the Congregation of GOD and much less sit on the throne in HIS Holy City Jerusalem.

 

"An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever: Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee."   Deuteronomy 23:3,4

 

JC: King of Israel

First of all, at the time of the so-called "Coming of JC", the Land of Israel was in the hands of the Romans.  Second of all, the Children of Israel were not there.

 

"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting."   James 1:1

 

Thus, JC could not have been King of Israel if the Romans were the true rulers and in total control of the Land.  And the fact that the Children of Israel had long since been scattered into the four corners of the Earth to serve their enemies for forsaking the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW some four hundred years before, there was no Israelite Kingdom.

 

And finally, the GOD of Israel Commanded that all Kings of Israel had to be of the Seed of Israelite brethren.

 

"Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

 

"Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel."   Deuteronomy 17:15,17 - 20

 

JC is not of the Israelite brethren but supposedly of the "Holy Ghost".  The GOD of Israel said nothing to HIS Covenant People about their being "Holy Ghosts", so JC could not have been a King even for that reason.

 

JC: A Prophet

This man called JC the "prophet of Nazareth of Galilee" is all a contrived effort to give credence to the "New Testament" writings and a man-god.  According to the WORD of GOD, all Prophets must come from the SEED of the Children of Israel.

 

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

 

"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."   Deuteronomy 18:18 – 22

 

Also, people should realize that after the GOD of Israel scattered the Israelites from the Land and cursed them to serve their enemies, HE ceased to send visions to anyone – not to the Israelites and not to Christian clergy. 

 

"Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD."   Lamentations 2:9

 

"Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God."   Micah 3:6,7

 

Yet, the writers of the "New Testament" say that they were "inspired" to write these books.  Given GOD's WORD, at the mouth of HIS Prophets, this cannot be true.  The CREATOR GOD was not accessible to anyone – not to the Children of Israel and certainly not to people who magnified and worshipped the false god JC.  GOD went to HIS Place to await the time when people would seek HIM.

 

"They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them."   Hosea 5:6

 

The CREATOR GOD of Israel has not lied.  HE kept HIS WORD to scatter HIS Covenant People, and HE made the Land of Israel a desolation, as well.

 

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

 

"… the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day. Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day."   Jeremiah 44:22,23

 

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

 

Is it not time to seek the ONE True and Living GOD because for sure there is no evidence of help from JC.

 

By the way, if JC were a Prophet, why didn't he know that GOD's Kingdom was not nigh, as he had prophesied (Luke 10:9)?  That, too, is reason enough to realize that he is not a prophet, nor a god or one joined with the CREATOR GOD.  And hence, GOD did not send JC to the Israelites for any reason.  Had GOD sent him, as HE had sent HIS Servant Moses, then JC would have fulfilled GOD's WORD.  In fact, if JC was a prophet, then he was a false prophet.

 

GOD's Prophet Malachi spoke of remembering the Law of Moses and of Elijah's return (Malachi 4:4,5).  So, who inspired the "New Testament" writers to spin this yarn about "Joy to the world, the Lord has come"?  It wasn't the CREATOR GOD of Israel, and that's a fact!  The CREATOR left HIS WORD with Malachi for all living today to "Remember, ye, the Laws of Moses".  If Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Tome, Dick, and Harry had truly been inspired by the CREATOR GOD, then this is what they, like all the Prophets, would have written about.  GOD's LAW is forever, and HIS LAW is about serving and worshipping ONLY HIM!  And, as we well know, Elijah is the Prophet who proved the existence of the ONE True and Living GOD – the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

 

"How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken."   I Kings 18:21 – 24

 

"And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.

 

"And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded."   I Kings 18:25,29

 

"And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God."   I Kings 18:30 - 39

 

"…Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them: 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 17:35 - 37

 

"And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."   Exodus 3:15

 

Prophets are in constant communication with the CREATOR learning what must be foretold.  That's why they are called Prophets.  The "New Testament" wants Christians to believe that JC was a Prophet, but the truth of the matter is that GOD did not inspire him or inform him of any Truth.  JC should have known that the Kingdom was not nigh, and that the Israelites were not in the Land at the time of his so-called "Coming".  His own words completely destroy any credibility of him being a "Son of God", a "Saviour of the world", or even GOD's Prophet.  Israel is GOD's Son, GOD is the SAVIOR, and the world is yet to be saved. 

 

"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

 

JC: Sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel

I think we can deduce that if GOD had already scattered the Children of Israel into the lands of their enemies to serve them, that HE would not have sent JC to the Land of Israel.  We, rebellious Israelites, were scattered to suffer afflictions because of the sins of our forefathers who rejected Our GOD for false gods.  And since this was their desire, the GOD of Israel left us to serve our enemies and to worship all the false gods we desired.

 

"…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."   Deuteronomy 28:64

 

"Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law; And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me: Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour."   Jeremiah 16:11 - 13

 

"As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols."   Ezekiel 20:39

 

"For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines."   Jeremiah 30:12,13

 

"Therefore now thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain; In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?"   Jeremiah 44:7,8

 

So, does it make sense to still put credence in anything written in the "New Testament", if it is not what THUS SAITH THE LORD?

 

JC: The Lord and Saviour of the World

The First Commandment dismisses this concept straightaway, but I prefer to eliminate it with the WORD OF GOD, HIMSELF!

 

"Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God."   Isaiah 43:10 – 12

 

"I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King."   Isaiah 43:15

 

"I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified."   Isaiah 43:25,26

 

"Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

 

"Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any."   Isaiah 44:6,8

 

"… all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob."   Isaiah 49:26

 

"And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me."   Exodus 20:1 - 3

 

Israelites do not need JC, we have a GOD and a GREAT ONE AT THAT!

 

JC: "No man cometh to the father, but by me":

 

This is the passage in the "New Testament" that I know personally to be an untruth.  I call on the Most High GOD of Israel every single day that HE sends!!!  HE doesn't always respond, but when HE does it is the most thrilling thing in life to know that the True and Living GOD has heard my prayers.  And in no way am I the only one who has been found to be worthy of hearing from the CREATOR GOD.  All one must do is turn to the Most High GOD of Israel in Truth and call upon HIM with your whole heart and soul, and HE will hear you.  But let's see what HE, HIMSELF, has to say about this.

 

"I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies."   II Samuel 22:4

 

"Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people."   I Chronicles 16:8

 

"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;"   I Chronicles 16:11,12

 

"Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me."   Psalm 142:7

 

"The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy."   Psalm 145:18 - 20

 

"And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?"   Isaiah 8:19

 

"Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD. And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible."   Jeremiah 15:19 - 21

 

"Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?"   Malachi 3:7

 

"But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.

 

"I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins."   Isaiah 43:22,25

 

If we want GOD's attention, then it behooves us all, Israelite and Stranger, to CALL UPON HIM, for HE detests worship of other gods.

 

Worship of JC:

 

I know of people who call themselves Christians but say that they do not worship JC.  Do these people know anything at all about Christian theology?  The "New Testament" teaches the worship of JC. 

 

"Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

 

"And he sent them to Beth-lehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

 

 

"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh."   Matthew 2:2,8,11

 

"And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean."   Matthew 8:2

 

"But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,"   Mark 5:6

 

"And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:"   Luke 24:52

 

Often I have asked Christians why they believe in JC.  Unto this day every reason is based on that which is written in the "New Testament" – none of which is based on fact.  The responses are nothing that can be termed proof positive and certainly nothing that everyone will call absolutely true, because even the "New Testament" writers have a difference of opinions.

 

The one thing Christians cannot say with conviction:  JC is the "Saviour of the World" for in no way is this at all proved to be true.  Christians die and suffer mourning, sickness, misery, and heartbreak just like everyone else.  And it would appear that given their numbers, two billion in the world and counting, that they are saved least of all.  Consider the poor Christians in the United States and in other ruling countries and Christians in the Caribbean, in Central and South America, and in the countries on the African continent who endure the worst destitution and death from disease on Earth, even while Christian Missionaries in their midst continue to promote this Christian "Saviour" in efforts to convert and persuade these deprived peoples to believe in the man-god, JC.  And in their pain and suffering, they do turn to this man-god, but they are still left barefoot, hungry, dying, diseased, and in misery without JC's intervention to save them or at least to make things better for them.

 

What I find astounding is that the Christians I encounter have never researched the making of the "New Testament" for credibility, GOD's Truth, and especially the WORD of GOD.  Under these circumstances, they fail to realize that the "New Testament" contradicts the CREATOR GOD, the GOD whose Holy Name is "JEALOUS", the GOD that detests worship of other gods, idols, and images.

 

"Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it."   Exodus 34:14

 

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

 

However, those of us who know the GOD of Israel know exactly why this world is plagued with false religions, oppression, hunger, turmoil, war, disasters, chaos, and with impoverished Christians spread across this globe.  Yes, we know exactly why this world appears doomed with false religions, turmoil, constant fighting, endless disasters, and absolute unhappiness.  But more importantly, with knowledge of the GOD of Israel that Created the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein, we can see what HE has manifest and left on this Earth to prove HIS Supreme Powers.  HE has left HIS Land before the world which stands for a multitude of reasons for us to believe in ONLY HIM and attest to HIS being the ONE True and Living CREATOR GOD of all things.

 

Nevertheless, the main reason to make the GOD of Israel Our GOD is because HE has proven HIMSELF to be the real SAVIOR to those who believe in HIM.  The "Old Testament" is replete with GOD's interactions with HIS Covenant People, the Children of Israel to prove HIS Love for them.  Even with all the abominations the Israelites committed against the GOD of Israel, HE still found it in HIS Heart to save them out of the hands of their enemies, countless times.

 

"Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;"   Psalm 103:1 – 4

 

"Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee. Thou art the LORD the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham; And foundest his heart faithful before thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and hast performed thy words; for thou art righteous: And didst see the affliction of our fathers in Egypt, and heardest their cry by the Red sea; And shewedst signs and wonders upon Pharaoh, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land: for thou knewest that they dealt proudly against them. So didst thou get thee a name, as it is this day."   Nehemiah 9:6 – 10

 

"But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their necks, and hearkened not to thy commandments,

 

"Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go."   Nehemiah 9:16,19

 

"Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not. Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and didst divide them into corners: so they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan. Their children also multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst promised to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it. So the children went in and possessed the land, and thou subduedst before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the people of the land, that they might do with them as they would. And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance: so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and delighted themselves in thy great goodness. Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations. Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies. But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies; And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law: yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear. Yet many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands. Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God."   Nehemiah 9:21 – 31

 

The Israelites failed their GOD of Israel, and this is the reason the world suffers.  The CREATOR GOD established the Children of Israel specifically to show forth HIS PRAISE and to be a LIGHT to the world in order that HE will be renowned the ONE True GOD.

 

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

 

"Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified."   Isaiah 49:3

 

When the GOD of Israel cursed the Israelites and scattered them from the Land and returned to HIS Place in the Heavens, HE left the people of the world to live as they desired.  As a result they made their own gods and worshipped them, and at the same time tese gods proved one obvious ting, and that is that they are no gods. 

 

Thus, this world is like it is because people have no knowledge of the ONE True GOD that CREATED the Heavens and the Earth.  They do not call upon HIM, therefore, why should HE move to help them.  HE has already made it perfectly clear that HE is a Jealous GOD, and that we should have no other gods before HIM, not to mention that HE will not give HIS GLORY to another.

 

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."   Psalm 19:1,2

 

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

 

At this point, let me make it perfectly clear that though the GOD of Israel has a Chosen, Covenant People that HE is the GOD of all who Fear HIM to do HIS Will and who join themselves unto HIM.  GOD's Prophet Isaiah and King Solomon made that perfectly clear.

 

"Also 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

 

"Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name."   I Kings 8:43

 

The CREATOR GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Book of the Law, i.e., HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments will be magnified throughout the world.

 

"The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable."   Isaiah 42:21

 

"Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day."   I Kings 8:61

 

Let your heart be perfect in worshipping the LORD GOD of Israel for vain is the help of man!  JC has proven that!

 

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

 

BUT THE "NEW TESTAMENT" REJECTION AND DENUNCIATION OF GOD'S LAW HAS OVERSHADOWED

THE TRUTH AND THE WORD OF THE CREATOR GOD!

 

SEE NOW, WHY THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL COMMANDED THAT WE NOT ADD TO NOR DIMINISH FROM HIS LAW, AND SEE WHY THIS "NEW TESTAMENT" IS UNACCEPTABLE:

 

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ,

even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ,

and not by the works of the law:

for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."

Galatians 2:16

 

"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."   John 1:17

 

"For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect."   I Corinthians 1:17

 

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."   Galatians 2:16

 

The so-called "Gospel" is NOT GOD's Book of the Law, and it in no way mirrors GOD's Laws, Statutes, and Judgments that HE Commanded HIS Servant Moses to teach to the Children of Israel. 

 

The whole concept of the teachings of Christianity is belief in JC and the teachings of the "New Testament".  These Christian teachings have all but rendered the CREATOR GOD and HIS Ways of Righteousness null and void.  Case and point:  Christians know nothing about the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and what HE has required of all peoples to live and do.  Noah was a Just and Righteous man because he was obedient to GOD's WORD.  Abraham was a Righteous man because he kept GOD's LAW and taught his children to do likewise, and as a result, the GOD of Abraham made a Covenant with him and with his SEED to be their GOD forever.  The Truth that Christians do not realize and understand is that the CREATOR GOD of Abraham never changed HIS Righteous Way of Life.  Why would HE?  What man or men can produce a Divine Way of Life that is greater than that of the CREATOR GOD?  If the CREATOR is to MAGNIFY HIS LAW and MAKE IT HONORABLE, then there is no reason to put any credence in the writings of men who by their own admission said that they were inspired to write.  Given that GOD's WORD is in the "Old Testament", there was no reason for them to be inspired to write a "New Testament" – a "New" Gospel.  All they had to do was reiterate what the CREATOR GOD had already Commanded Moses to teach and let that suffice.  The so-called inspired writings of the "New Testament" have benefited no one. 

 

"For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed."   Isaiah 9:16

 

"Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,"   Isaiah 46:9

 

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

 

"Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments."   Malachi 4:4

 

"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. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?"   Deuteronomy 4:5 - 8 

 

Was not the Land of Israel destroyed because the Children of Israel rejected the CREATOR GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous LAW?  Did not the CREATOR GOD of Israel spue all Twelve Tribes from the Land of Israel for rejecting HIM and HIS LAW? 

 

"Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up; To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head. I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity."   Jeremiah 18:15 - 17

 

And is it not written that the CREATOR GOD of Israel will still cause the Children of Israel to return to the Land when they return to HIS LAW?

 

"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."   Deuteronomy 30:1 – 3

 

GOD has not changed HIS Ordinances - MAN HAS!!!  Mankind has invented everything from cars, trains, and airplanes to democracy, parliaments, and religions.  Worst of all is the one that magnifies a man-god who proves to be much less of an asset than the vehicles and governments.  At least vehicles have a good reason for being.  They enable people to get from one place to another.   Unfortunately the governments, set up by man, aren't much to write home about, but in some respects, they are better to have around than false religions, which serve no purpose whatsoever.

 

"The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left."   Isaiah 24:5,6

 

Now for sure, everyone can understand what is wrong with this world!  The Christian religion and its plethora of denominations are dominant in this transgression and bear much of the responsibility in spreading teachings not cast up by the CREATOR GOD.

 

"Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up; To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head. I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity."   Jeremiah 18:15 - 17

"Hear ye the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel: Thus saith the LORD, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain? Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?"   Jeremiah 2:4 – 6

 

"Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with your children's children will I plead.

 

"Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit."   Jeremiah 2:9,11

 

"Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah."   Jeremiah 2:27,28

"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."

But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: menshall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed."   Isaiah 61:4 – 9

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.

"Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."   Joshua 1:7,8

 

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

 

"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

 

"For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations."   Isaiah 61:11

"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."

 

 

REMEMBER GOD'S WONDROUS WORKS AND BOAST OF THEM:

 

"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."  

I Chronicles 16:9 - 11

 

"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."   I Chronicles 16:12 – 14

 

"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."   I Chronicles 16:24,25

 

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

 

"O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works."   Psalm 71:17

 

"For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

 

"Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof."   Psalm 96:5,11

 

"O 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."   Psalm 105:1 – 3

 

"Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!"   Psalm 107:8

 

"Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;"   Isaiah 44:24

 

"According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things. The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf."   Micah 7:15,16

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

"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."

 

GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD, WANTS OUR LOVE, WANTS US TO CLEAVE TO HIM, AND WANTS US TO SWEAR BY HIS HOLY NAME:

 

"… thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD,

whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:"  

Exodus 34:14

 

"…I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people."   Leviticus 20:24

 

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."   Deuteronomy 6:4 - 7

 

Thus, if our whole heart, soul, and might are focused on the GOD of Israel and FEARING HIM to live according to HIS Book of the Law, then there can be no possible way to worship JC or any other god.

 

"…ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;"   Deuteronomy 11:22

 

"Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen."   Deuteronomy 10:20,21

 

Everything we need to know about the GOD of Israel is written in HIS Book of the Law. 

 

"The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law."   Deuteronomy 29:29

 

There is nothing in GOD's LAW or HIS WORD about a "gospel".   Moreover, given all that the CREATOR GOD has Commanded concerning worship of HIM, it would appear that HE knows nothing at all about JC and much less about his being a so-called "Son of God".   It would also appear that no one in the "Old Testament" knows anything about him, either. 

 

"For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?"   Psalm 89:6

 

That which makes JC of distinguished suspicion is that it is hard to tell who magnifies him more, the writers of the "New Testament" or he, himself.  Not to mention that the "New Testament" would not be so conspicuous and mysterious if it weren't so vastly diverse and didn't so staunchly oppose GOD's LAW and HIS WORD.

 

"Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; And then the LORD'S wrath be kindled against you…"   Deuteronomy 11:16,17

 

"I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God."   Ezekiel 20:19,20

 

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

"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."

 

TRUSTING IN A MAN DOES NOT PAY:

 

"Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,

and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD."  

Jeremiah 17:5

 

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

 

If JC is the "Son of God" and "Saviour of the World", where is his interaction with GOD that HE demonstrated with the Children of Israel in Egypt, in the Wilderness, and in the Land of Israel?  The GOD of Israel begs to differ with JC.

 

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

 

"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 that cannot save."   Isaiah 45:20

 

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

 

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

 

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

"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."

 

WE DON'T NEED JC – WE NEED OUR GOD OF ISRAEL:

 

"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

 

"See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me:

I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal:

neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand."

Deuteronomy 32:39

 

"And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things,

a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

 

And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people,

and the veil that is spread over all nations.

 

He will swallow up death in victory;

and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces;

and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:

for the LORD hath spoken it.

 

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,

and he will save us: this isthe LORD; we have waited for him,

we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation."

Isaiah 25:6 – 9

 

"Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen:

that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he:

before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me."

Isaiah 43:10

 

IF JC IS NOT GOD, THEN THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE IN HIM! 

THE CREATOR HAS GIVEN US HIS PROPHETS,

AND THEY REITERATE HIS WORD WITHOUT ALTERING IT!

WE DON'T NEED JC OR THE "NEW TESTAMENT" TEACHINGS!!!

 

"God is my strength and power: And he maketh my way perfect."   II Samuel 22:33

 

"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 troubles. 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. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate."   Psalm 34:15 - 22

 

"Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him…"   Psalm 37:3 – 7

 

"… the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him."   Psalm 37:39,40

 

"For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession. The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein."   Psalm 69:35,36

 

"Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy."   Psalm 103:1 – 8

 

"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

 

"But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;"   Psalm 103:12,13,17

 

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

 

"Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still."   Isaiah 10:4

 

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

"Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee."   Isaiah 44:21,22

 

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."    Isaiah 49:22

 

"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 49:25,26

 

"Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel."   Jeremiah 3:23

 

"Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth…

 

 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD. And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible"   Jeremiah 15:19 – 21

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 36:23 – 28

TRUST AND HOPE IN ONLY THE GOD OF ISRAEL FOR HELP:

 

"What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart,

and spread forth his hands toward this house:

 

Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do,

and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest;

(for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)"

I Kings 8:38,39

 

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

 

"For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee."   Psalm 33:21,22

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

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

"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."

 

ISRAELITE WORSHIP OF DEITIES PROFANES GOD's HOLY NAME:

 

"As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols."

Ezekiel 20:39

 

When Israelites, GOD's Covenant People, revere and believe in JC or other god, they profane GOD's Holy Name.  Just in case the First Commandment is not clear on GOD objecting to having another god, including JC, before HIM, then consider why the Prophet Moses could not enter the Land of Israel, even after bringing the Israelites out of Egyptian bondage and bearing them forty years in the Wilderness.  At the Waters of Meribah the Prophet Moses neglected to Sanctify the GOD of Israel after HE caused waters to flow from the rock (Numbers 27:14).  You see, the Holy ONE wanted all the GLORY for providing water to HIS People, the Israelites.  As we know from Scripture, the CREATOR GOD of Israel will not give HIS GLORY to another.  And why should HE?  By HIMSELF HE ALONE Created the Heavens and the Earth, mankind, and all things therein.  Therefore, HE will not tolerate worship and/or recognition of anyone or of anything but HIMSELF for HE is the CREATOR, and there is none else.  Hence, is it any wonder why the GOD of Israel cast our forefathers out of the Land of Israel for rejecting HIM and worshipping false gods?

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

"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."

 

FORSAKE AND/OR FORGET THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL AND SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES:

 

"In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.

Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation,

and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength,

therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:"

Isaiah 17:9,10

 

"…a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:"   Psalm 78:21,22

 

"Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy. How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:"   Psalm 78:41 – 43

 

"Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images."   Psalm 78:56 - 58

"They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods."   Isaiah 42:17

 

"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. Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart."   Isaiah 42:23 – 25

 

"Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."   Jeremiah 2:12,13

 

"Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

GOD's LAW – HIS WAYS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE PERFECT AND WHAT WE MUST LIVE AND DO:

 

"I will worship toward thy holy temple,

and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth:

for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."

Psalm 138:2

 

"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

 

"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

 

"Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?"   Deuteronomy 4:5 – 8

 

"He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel."   Psalm 103:7

 

"Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

"Hear ye the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel: Thus saith the LORD, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain? Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?"   Jeremiah 2:4 – 6

 

"Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with your children's children will I plead.

 

"Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit."   Jeremiah 2:9,11

"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."

 

OBSERVE THE CREATOR GOD's HOLY SEVENTH DAY OF COMPLETE REST, AS WE ARE COMMANDED TO DO AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE SIGN THAT THE CREATOR HAS ESTABLISHED BETWEEN HIMSELF AND HIS COVENANT PEOPLE:

 

 

"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

 

"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

 

"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou 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, 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 20:8 - 11

 

"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

 

"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. And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God."   Exodus 31:12 – 18

 

"Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest."    Exodus 34:21

 

"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. Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day."   Exodus 35:2,3

 

"Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.  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 5:12 - 14

 

"Thus said the LORD unto me; Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Judah come in, and by the which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem; And say unto them, Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates: 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. And they shall come from the cities of Judah, and from the places about Jerusalem, and from the land of Benjamin, and from the plain, and from the mountains, and from the south, bringing burnt offerings, and sacrifices, and meat offerings, and incense, and bringing sacrifices of praise, unto the house of the LORD."   Jeremiah 17:19 - 26

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

"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."

 

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL MAY NUMBER IN THE MILLIONS, BUT ONLY A REMNANT IS PROPHESIED TO RETURN:

 

"For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel,

and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them,

and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob."

Isaiah 14:1

 

"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 10:22

 

"Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto the LORD, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve the LORD your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you. For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him."   II Chronicles 30:8,9

 

"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.

 

"And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt."   Isaiah 11:11,12,16

 

"Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him."   Isaiah 43:5 - 7

 

"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."   Isaiah 49:22,23

 

"…I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed."   Isaiah 61:8.9

 

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

 

"And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."   Isaiah 65:21 – 24

 

"Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers."   Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

"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."   Jeremiah 30:7 - 9

 

"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.

 

"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."   Jeremiah 31:4,8

 

"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 31:16,17

 

"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 32:39 - 42

 

"And I will bring Israel again to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead."   Jeremiah 50:19

 

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

 

"And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD."   Ezekiel 36:11

 

"And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:"   Ezekiel 37:21,22

 

"Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old."   Micah 7:20

 

"The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel."    Psalm 147:2

 

"…the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish."   Isaiah 2:17.18

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

"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."

 

GOD's PLACE OF WORSHIP IS NEITHER CHURCH, SYNAGOGUE, NOR STORE-FRONT-MEETING PLACE BUT IS IN FACT JERUSALEM – THE PLACE HE CHOSE FOR HIS HOLY NAME AND FOR HIS HOLY TEMPLE:

 

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

 

"That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.  And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive."   I Kings 8:29,30

 

"And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do, That the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon. And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel."   I Kings 9:1 - 5

 

"And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice."   II Chronicles 7:12

 

"For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers. And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed."   Ezekiel 20:40 - 43

 

"For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it."   Psalm 132:13,14

 

If Israelites and Gentiles, those who choose blindness and sleep to the evil and wickedness of this world and reject GOD's Truth and do not face the facts that matter, then there is but one expectation for them, and that is a rude awakening.  The CREATOR GOD no longer chooses to be forgotten – not by the very people HE Chose for HIS Covenant People and not by any other Peoples walking HIS Earth.  The CREATOR GOD's Judgment will fall upon all who continue to reject HIM and HIS WORD, and at that time there will be no chance to repent for it will be too late!

 

"They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed,

that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.

Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?

who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD'S servant?

Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not."

Isaiah 42:17 - 20

 

"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."

Psalm 37:35,36

 

"Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be:

and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth.

Selah."

Psalm 59:13

 

"For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth."

Psalm 37:9

 

"…the transgressors shall be destroyed together:

the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD:

he is their strength in the time of trouble.

And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them:

he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him."

Psalm 37:38 - 40

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:

 

"JEWS" LOVE PRESIDENT OBAMA!

 

Who said that the White "Jews" don't like Black US President?  Are you kidding me?  They are already dropping our money where it matters most just so he will be re-elected, that is, if he chooses to run again. 

 

These "Jews" are working faster than lightning to get these settlements up.  And Netanyahu promises that construction of the settlements in Palestinian territory will continue.  Well, why not?  Ain't nobody going to do anything about it.  Be sure to see FYI in this month's JOURNAL.  You will be quite surprised. 

 

*****

 

TRUTH IN DRIPS AND DRABS ARE BETTER THAN NOTHING,

BUT HERE, I'M TALKING ABOUT A FLOOD OF TRUTH!

 

There is no question that the GOD of Israel has HIS Awesome HAND in the affairs of this world.  When a European "Jew", Shlomo Sands, author of The Invention of the Jewish People, comes forward to reveal to the world that the "Jews" out of Europe who occupy the Land of Israel are frauds, then you know that the pressure on the flood gates is about to be overwhelming and will reveal the GOD's Truth!!!  HALLELUYAH!  The SEED of Jacob is on the highway home!

 

It can't be long now before the Holy ONE of Israel will give us our day to speak out and prove our true identity, so that the world will finally be able to worship the ONE True and Living GOD, and so that genuine peace can come to GOD's Holy Land and to the Palestinians and all others who desire to live there.

LET'S PUT THE BLAME WHERE IT BELONGS –

LET'S BLAME GOD!

 

Oil is flooding the Gulf of Mexico because of an off-shore platform explosion causing millions of gallons to pour into the Gulf waters.  This spill is expected to cause all kinds of major catastrophes: folks are already becoming unemployed, fishermen cannot go out for their catch, and sea animals and all manner of birds are all covered with oil and are dying.  

 

Several men in China have gone around randomly killing young children.

 

A volcanic eruption in Iceland caused countries to lose billions because of an inability to fly out their passengers because of the volcanic ash in the air. 

 

Turmoil is rising up all around the world.

 

So, who is to blame?  Trust me, the CREATOR could have stopped all this from happening.  HE is the ALL-MIGHTY CREATOR GOD, so HE can do anything but fail, remember?

 

But some people would beg to differ with me.  They would say the devil is responsible for all the bad things that are happening to the US and to the rest of the world.  Yeah, right!!!  Well, if that is the case, the next time you go before a judge for some crime, tell him the devil made you do it and see how much compassion he or she will have for you.  If you won't be sent to some psychiatric ward, then you will be buried under the jail.  There ain't enough tax dollars to go around any mo' to support these prisons.

 

Personally, I ain't never seen no devil.  So, I can't agree with that premise.   The world had better wake up and wake up fast!  All these incidents happening today are for a reason.  The CREATOR GOD is calling attention to HIMSELF and is taking back HIS Universe.  HE is doing everything to wake up the wicked and the "Dry Bones", but folks are fighting HIM tooth and nail.  I wonder if they realize that they are in a lose-lose situation. 

 

"Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."   Isaiah 24:1

 

"The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. "   Isaiah 24:5,6

 

"The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 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 24:19 - 21

 

"For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.  Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee."   Isaiah 25:2,3

IT WAS ALL IN VAIN!

 

The United States, under the presidency of Former President George W. Bush, went into Iraq bombing and razing this country with the intention to occupy and control the oil.  It did not happen obviously because the CREATOR does not want Middle East oil in the hands of Americans or Europeans.  What did happen was that the US killed thousands of men, women, and children in their thirst for greed.  Those who did not die suffer psychological problems, wounds of all kinds, miscarriages from the weaponry used upon them, and an infrastructure not fit for human habitation.  It all started in 2003.  What's worse, the religious factions are now causing non-stop chaos and confusion, creating a most unstable environment preventing anyone from living in peace.

 

I read a recent article about an abandoned car filled with explosives in New York that struck many raw nerves.  I'm sure that is quite true.  But has anyone in the States stopped to think of the raw nerves that were struck when day after day the US dropped bombs on another man's land just so Bus, Chaney, Haliburton, and countless others could go in and take over the oil fields?  Instead of taking billions in oil revenues, the US lost trillions.  I wonder if the rulers of the US have done any soul searching or have taken a moment to truly contemplate what they have done and realized the CREATOR GOD's Judgment upon  the United States' because of its deceptive acts to search for weapons of mass destruction and its heartless acts against the innocent peoples of Iraq.

THE SMOKESCREEN

 

We can assume the Universe was established by a “Big Bang,” or we can seek a more intelligent theory.

 

The more intelligent reasoning is that a Supreme Being did in fact Create the Heavens, Earth, and all things therein.  Then the issue becomes, “Did this Supreme Being intend for HIS CREATION to exist in such a chaotic state of absolute Hell, as it is now?”  If not, then it is incumbent upon us to seek answers for the present horrific state of affairs in the Land of Israel and the rest of the Middle East that is capable of spreading to other countries even to the United States.

 

It is not likely that this Supreme Being did not advise the people of HIS Creation IN THE BEGINNING of how to live in goodness and in peace with each other, which certainly entailed how to worship HIM for giving them life.  For there not to exist harmony and happiness on this Earth, it is evident that from the looks of things and from the ever-present catastrophic events taking place on Earth, this Supreme Being is furious with the peoples HE Created.

 

This is where we are now.  The CREATOR is Judging the peoples of HIS Creation and is taking back HIS Universe.

 

History proves that Jerusalem is the Holy City of the GOD of Israel, that the Israelites are HIS Chosen, Covenant People, and that the Land of Israel belongs to HIM, as well.  So, why all the attention given to this area of the world that is proving to be the catalyst leading to the end of this present world system?

 

The Palestinians have been in the land since the reign of King Saul, and the European Israelis have been a State since 1948, opening their doors to other converted Europeans and whomsoever else wishing to take part in this Talmudic process and live off the fat of GOD’s Holy Land.  The Palestinians and the Israelis have been at war ever since.  If these two groups can live together anywhere in the world except in Israel, then there must be a very good reason why.  However, the reason is not one that Israelis desire to make public.  Israeli hatred of the Arabs is not at all the issue.  There exists a more profound reason than that.  Finger pointing at the Arabs is but the ubiquitous smokescreen presented to the world.

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONVERSION TO SO-CALLED “JUDAISM”

 

The world should connect the dots and learn the truth regarding the Europeans who control GOD’s Holy Land.  There is no way the GOD of Israel will accept a conversion process that changes Europeans, Americans, and Middle Easterners into “Jews.”  GOD’s Covenant is with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their SEED.  Accordingly, how can we dismiss the fact that Abraham was called out of Ur of the Chaldeans – NOT out of Europe.  GOD well knows HIS Chosen People, no matter that HE took their identity from them and cast them from HIS Land.

 

And their being scattered into the “Four Corners of the Earth” to serve their enemies has everything to do with the problems in the Middle East, as this crisis relates to the CREATOR GOD taking back HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land, HIS Holy City, and HIS Chosen People.  The Israelis know this.  They see the handwriting on the wall, but they are fighting the CREATOR GOD tooth and nail.  That’s what this war is all about - Israeli control - to keep out the SEED of Jacob whom GOD is calling home.  Hence, the Israelis, even if time permitted, would not give the Palestinians their State for fear the Israelites would seek to live there also.  And just for the record, one can learn about the true identity of the descendants of Jacob by reading what the CREATOR GOD of Israel said would befall them in Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters.

 

The Israelis have a rabid requirement to control all the Land of Israel including the Palestinian territories for one reason and for one reason only, which has everything to do with their “Law of Return.”  The Israelis and their Rabbinute (their religious party) are ever aware that the CREATOR GOD of Israel has a Covenant People – The Twelve Tribes of Jacob, and they know that according to Biblical Prophecy the CREATOR GOD of the Land of Israel and this Universe will restore HIS Chosen People to their heritage.  For obvious reasons, in no way do the Israelis (European converts to what’s called “Judaism,” which is of their own making) want this to happen, for then they will no longer have control of the Land of Israel at all.  However, they know their days are numbered.

 

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:”  

Ezekiel 36:7 – 10

 

Now, the Truth is out.  This is the reason for the decades of turmoil, death, and destruction over GOD’s Holy Land.  And of a Truth, the Israeli powers-that-be have no qualms about their dilemma.  They are prepared to fight to the end, but who are they really fighting?  It all has to do with what prophecy foretells, and what must be fulfilled.

 

Conversely, Israelis are putting too much false hope in their military powers.  When it comes to the Children of Israel, the CREATOR GOD fights their battles, and since it is time for their return, there is nothing Israeli’ weaponry can do to stop GOD’s Commandment from manifesting.

 

The Israelites were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise and to be a light to the world for HIS Ways of Righteousness – HIS Book of the Law (the teachings of the Prophet Moses – NOT the Talmud compiled by European “Jews”). 

 

“Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;”  

Isaiah 42:5,6

 

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

 

And it is for this reason the Supreme Being, or rather the CREATOR GOD of Israel is taking back HIS magnificent Universe and making it a place of Divine Peace, one that Exalts and Magnifies HIM for all HIS Wondrous Works.

 

The CREATOR GOD has held HIS Peace for a very long time, all because of the curses HE put on HIS Chosen People for forsaking HIM for false gods and for rejecting HIS LAW.  Their rebellion caused GOD to cast HIS People into the hands of the heathen, and HE went into seclusion permitting Gentiles to run the world and teach HIS People a lesson that would send them running back to HIM seeking forgiveness with contrite spirits.

 

“I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.”   Isaiah 42:14

 

For a long time people believed that the European “Jews” were really the people of the Bible, but the CREATOR knows HIS Chosen People, the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the men with whom HE made an Everlasting Covenant  (Genesis 17:1 – 21). 

 

From the Slave Trade to world hatred, and enduring racism and discrimination all over the world, Blacks have suffered at the hands of those who ruled over them.  But now, the CREATOR GOD of Israel is awakening the Dry Bones and calling HIS People home to the chagrin and utter dismay of European Israelis who are helpless to do anything about it but who still have plans to thwart the WORD of GOD.  Trust me, their efforts will not end in victory, and nothing since 1948 has even given them hope that they could take the place of the SEED of Jacob/Israel (Genesis 32:28) – neither by conversion nor submersion. 

 

Thus, the reasons for the war for Israeli control of GOD’s Land and the reasons for a world of troubled times, disasters, endless suffering, despair, and many, many tears.

 

The CREATOR is taking back HIS Universe and keeping HIS Everlasting Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Patriarchs of the Nation of Israel. 

 

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

 

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”   Isaiah 11:11

 

“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”   Ezekiel 36:27

 

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.”   Isaiah 66:22

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.”  

Jeremiah 30:18 – 21

 

“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things. For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God. For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.”   Jeremiah 31:1 – 13

 

“The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.”   Zephaniah 3:13

 

“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.”   Zephaniah 3:19

 

And for all HIS Creations, especially man, the ONE CREATOR GOD of Israel will be acknowledged and worshipped by HIS Chosen People and all Nations remaining from HIS Wrath and destruction of the wicked.  The Peoples of this world will revolve around its MAKER!

 

Yes, the All-Mighty CREATOR will liberate HIS Holy Land and will return to HIS Holy City Jerusalem, where once again HIS Holy Priests will minister before HIM and where people of all Nations will visit to Bless HIM for HIS GOODNESS and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.

 

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

 

“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”   Zechariah 14:16

 

FINALLY:

 

“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.”   Zephaniah 2:3

 

WHAT IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE CREATOR GOD?

 

“And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.”   Deuteronomy 6:25

 

“When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 31:11 - 13

 

The fulfillment of the above passage is just a matter of time.

WE WANT ANSWERS, BUT CAN WE HANDLE THE TRUTH?

 

What in the world is happening?

 

As people watch and experience frightening and disastrous floods, killer storms, Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, destructive fires, famine, and incurable diseases, they can only ask, “Will my loved ones and I be spared?”

 

As people sit in churches and temples, they wonder, “Why aren’t my prayers being answered?”  And “Who can I trust to spiritually guide me?”

 

As people raise their children, they wonder, “How can I explain the reasons why GOD does not end hunger, impoverishment, race hatred, unhappiness, ubiquitous catastrophes, and bring peace to this Earth?”

 

And “Why would GOD hand HIS Earth over to the heathens?”

 

The ANSWERS to all these questions and many, many more can be found in “The Old Testament.”

In that this book details new revelations and unconventional perspectives about Christianity and so-called “Judaism” (unrelated to the LAW GOD gave to Moses), would you be so inclined to consider the answers and solutions written therein?

 

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

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

[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.

 

13. The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold by Acharya S.

 

14. Gospel Fictions by Randel Helms

 

15. Don't forget that our brother, Moreh Aesh of Baltimore, produces a long list of pamphlets, essays, etc. explaining much to Israelites, including the debunking of christianity and islam, under his Zaqen Publications. You can view the publications available by logging on to www.zaqen.info.


Hope this list is useful. Sorry about its length, although I could have added some more. But you know, "the reading of many books......"


As always, love, peace and blessings to you and yours.


Kol Khavode L'Yehowah,

Naami

A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE “KOY”

 

TAKE DILIGENT HEED…

 

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

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

and to cleave unto him,

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

Joshua 22:5

June 19, 2006

 

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

 

IN THAT…

 

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

 

AND…

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Jeremiah 6:19

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Micah 2:7

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

ISRAEL DOES NOT KNOW!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Psalm 104:33 – 35

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Me and My GOD with me,

REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD IN REGARD TO

HIS SEVENTH DAY SABBATH COMMANDMENT!

 

REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS ANNIVERSARY DAY OF REST,

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

HIM AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!

 

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

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

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

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:

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

Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

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

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

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

Exodus 16:29

 

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

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

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

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

Jeremiah 7:23,24

 

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

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

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

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

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

Jeremiah 11:3,4

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Nehemiah 13:18

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Nehemiah 13:19

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Exodus 19:4 – 6

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

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

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

and in keeping of them there is great reward.”

Psalm 19:7 - 11

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Isaiah 5:25,26

 

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

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

therefrom to the right hand or to the left;

 

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

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

 

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

Joshua 23:6 - 8

 

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

Exodus 15:26

O LORD GOD of Israel,

 

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

 

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

DEAR LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

 

TAKE BACK your Universe! 

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

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

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

for your MAJESTY and EXALTATION ALONE!

 

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

 

TAKE BACK your Holy Land

YOU PROMISED it to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

AND to the SEED of the Children of Israel!

 

TAKE BACK your Holy City, Jerusalem

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

IN TRUTH DURING THIS ROSH CHODESH AND ALL THE YEAR,

 ALWAYS!

A MESSAGE TO ALL MESSIANICS:

 

 WAIT ON THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL

AND

MAKE HIM YOUR

LORD AND SAVIOR - NOT “MAN.”

(Psalm 25:4,5)

 

 

“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God,

and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them,

I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”

Deuteronomy 8:19

 

 

“Whom have I in heaven but thee?

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

Psalm 73:25

 

“Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

 

“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.

 

“I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death:

O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction:

repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.”  

Hosea 13:4,9,14

 

“Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,

and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:

if  I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.”  

Psalm 40:5

 

“But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children,

and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you,

but go and serve other gods, and worship them:

 

“Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house,

which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight;

and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:”  

I Kings 9:6,7

 

THEREFORE, FOR WHAT REASON

DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH,

THE ALL-MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL?!

 

 

“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

 

“He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”    Deuteronomy 10:20,21

 

“That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”   Deuteronomy 30:20

 

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

 

“Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.”   Psalm 107:31,32

 

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:  OPEN THY MOUTH WIDE, AND I WILL FILL IT.”  Psalm 37:10

 

AGAIN AND AGAIN, I ASK:

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH

OUR ONLY GOD AND SAVIOR?

 

“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

 

“To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?”   Deuteronomy 10:12,13

 

“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.”   Jeremiah 31:1

 

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

and let such as love thy salvation say continually,

Let God be magnified.”

Psalm 70:4

 

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

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

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

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

O God, who is like unto thee!”

Psalm 71:15,16,19

 

“And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:  And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above,

or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy

with thy servants

that walk before thee with all their heart:”

I Kings 8:22,23

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

“And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.

Exodus 29:46

 

“And God spake all these words, saying,

 

“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.

 

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”  

Exodus 20:1 - 3

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH,

THE LORD OUR GOD THAT SAVED ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?

 

“…they shall CALL ON MY NAME, and I will hear them:  I will say, It is my people:  and they shall say, The LORD is my God.”   Zechariah 13:9

 

Given all the above Scripture, YOU MESSIANICS should realize that we should not be trusting in or magnifying “man” - not any “man” for the Holy ONE of Israel is a JEALOUS GOD, and HE wants all the Praise and Glory for HIMSELF!  HE ALONE is Our SAVIOR, and there is none else:

 

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

 

“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.”   Isaiah 44:8

 

“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together:  who hath declared this from ancient time?  who hath told it from that time?  have not I the LORD?  And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

 

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”   Isaiah 45:21,22

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

Our Righteous GOD gave us HIS Holy Book of the Law – not the “New Testament” that was established by “man” to support his man-made, very well organized and deceptive religion.

 

WE DO NOT NEED JC!!!

 

The TEACHINGS of the GOD of Israel are found in HIS Book of the Law, and in no way do HIS Teachings even parallel those of JC.  As a matter of fact, the “New Testament” and the teachings of JC were specifically written and embellished to REPLACE GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments - hence, the reason for the word “New” in the title of this book! 

 

This is one of the greatest sins one can commit against the Most High GOD of Israel.  Not only is GOD’s Law to be kept “to a thousand generations” and “FOR EVERMORE” (Deuteronomy 7:9; II Kings 17:37), but no one can add to or diminish from all that the GOD of Israel has COMMANDED that we should observe to DO (Deuteronomy 12:32)! 

 

Equally as important, “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them, And all the people shall say, Amen” (Deuteronomy 27:26).  Perhaps JC wasn’t aware of this Law!

 

The “New Testament” and this “man” JC have not only added to GOD’s WORD, but they have disclaimed GOD’s Ordinances and changed them altogether!

 

“The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.”   Isaiah 24:4 - 6  

 

Every man/woman who serves and worships the All-Mighty GOD of Israel knows to Exalt ONLY HIM and HIS Book of the Law, for through meditating in this Righteous Book, one is made wise and, therefore, learns of GOD’s Truth and magnifies it and nothing else!

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.   Deuteronomy 32:4

 

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee:  turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

 

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shal make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”   Joshua 1:7,8

 

Equally important, the wise will confirm that there is but ONE GOD, the CREATOR, and there is none else!

 

“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”   Isaiah 43:10

 

“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

 

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I amthe LORD, and there is none else.”   Isaiah 45:5,6

 

“But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

 

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

 

Finally, when we realize that NO ONE can deliver out of GOD’s Hand, i.e., reverse the CURSES HE put on the Nation of Israel (or anyone else for that matter), then we will understand why the man, JC, is a farce, and thus, was not able to save the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel,” or establish GOD’s Kingdom.  Thus, we also realize why the writers of the “New Testament” conveniently wrote JC completely out of the picture and into a false doctrine and forged sense of hope that lies in the hearts of naïve and badly informed believers! 

 

The Holy ONE of Israel wants HIS People to SERVE, TRUST, BELIEVE, HOPE, AND WORSHIP ONLY HIM!  AND HE WILL HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY!

 

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

 

WE NEED THE SAME GOD THAT SAVED THE NATION OF ISRAEL

OUT OF EGYPT

TO ONCE AGAIN

DELIVER US OUT OF OUR ENEMIES’ LANDS!!!

 

“And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities,

and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“And also I have withholden the rain from you,

when there were yet three months to the harvest:

and I caused it to rain upon one city,

and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon,

and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

 

“So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water;

but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased,

the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses;

and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils:

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

 

“I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,

and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning:

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.”

Amos 4:6  – 11

 

“For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel,

Seek ye me, and ye shall live

 

“Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph,

and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Beth-el.”

Amos 5:4,6

 

“The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you,

that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.”

Amos 4:2

 

“The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.

 

“Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus;

Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas!

and they shall call the husbandman to mourning,

and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

 

“Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus,

saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.”

Amos 5:2,16,27

(See also Jeremiah 30:13)

 

Why didn’t JC know about Amos’ PROPHECIES?  Why didn’t he know that GOD had cursed the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” (Matt.15:24), and that it would be impossible to SAVE them?  And why didn’t he know that we would still be UNSAVED unto this day?!   I’ll tell you why.  When the tale was woven to establish this false religion, X-tianity, the writers were so busy fabricating what they thought would be a foolproof theology that they neglected to do their homework!  They should have researched what “Thus Saith the LORD,” first!  How long will intelligent people continue to believe in this “man” JC?

 

WE DO NOT NEED JC! 

 

WE NEED THE GOD OF ABRAHAM!

 

“Therefore, behold the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said,

The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel

from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: 

and I will bring them again unto their land

that I gave unto their fathers.”

Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name:  bring an offering,

and come before him:  worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. 

FEAR BEFORE HIM ALL THE EARTH…”

I Chronicles 16:29,30

 

If the Holy ONE of Israel DECLARED that there is NONE TO PLEAD OUR CAUSE (Jeremiah 30:13), then of what value was JC???  Obviously, this man was/is of no value to the Children of Israel at all.  Hence, again and again I urge Messianics to turn to the GOD of Israel and believe, hope, and trust in ONLY HIM for HE is the ONLY ONE that has proven HIMSELF to be able to truly SAVE HIS People out of the hands of their enemies.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

AND THAT THERE IS NONE LIKE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

 

Tziona Yisrael,

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

 

P.S.

 

I live to Exalt the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Book of the Law and all because returning to HIM and serving and worshipping HIM (when our forefathers wouldn’t) will cause Our GOD and SAVIOR to return back to us, HIS Chosen People.  Therefore, the more Israelites involved in this great Mission to return to the Holy ONE and HIS Law, the sooner the GOD’s TRUTH will be disseminated around the world and the sooner the True and Living GOD will be revealed, magnified, and PRAISED by all (Isaiah 43:21).  And LORD knows this “man” JC, or whatever people choose to call him, will have nothing to do with bringing about this disclosure or the Redemption and Deliverance from all the perils upon the SEED of the Children of Israel, as well as the rest of the nations on this Earth for that matter.   And the reason is that the man JC, in the “NT,” is too busy shedding light on himself to give Praise and Glory to the Most High GOD of Israel, which is all that this GOD wanted most from HIS Chosen People.

 

It should be realized that GOD did not let Samuel’s words fall to the ground, i.e., everything Samuel said came to pass (I Samuel 3:19).  But this was not the case with the “man” JC, and yet he was/is worshipped and magnified as if he were the GOD of this Universe.   And indeed many people think that he is.  But if he is a god or if he is “the son of God,” then certainly he should have known that GOD’s Kingdom was NOT at hand (Matthew 10:5 - 7) – a blunder from which he will never recover! 

 

And since JC could not make this significant call that would have proven his identity and godliness, the wise should know that he is as much a lying prophet as was Hananiah who disputed GOD's WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophet Jeremiah who had already said that the Tribe of Judah would be in Babylonian captivity for seventy years.  Afterwards, Hananiah claimed that the Judahites would be captives for only two years rather than seventy.  Consequently, Hananiah paid with his life for making the Judahites “trust in a lie” (Jeremiah 28th Chapter). 

 

Is not this what JC has done?  Hasn't this man-god, be he real or imaginary, made people believe in lies?  He was not "sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel" because they were not there (James 1:1), and GOD's Kingdom was not "nigh".  

 

As well, we should give more thought to the fact that “there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face” (Deuteronomy 34:10).  That kind of leaves the “Son of God” out in the cold; wouldn’t you say?

 

And finally, GOD said, “The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls:  because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert to give drink to my people, my chosen” (Isaiah 43:20).  There’s much to be gleaned from this passage!  But suffice it to say that the beasts of the field know well the identity of the CREATOR, and they know even better that this All-Mighty GOD is the ONLY ONE that deserves ALL THE GLORY.  Unfortunately, these days, when there is a drought, severe storm, flooding, waters in the desert or forest (lightning) fires, crippling dust storms and famine, people, not the beasts of the field, but PEOPLE will credit “Mother Nature” for these weather patterns and not make the slightest connection to the Most High GOD.

 

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”   Isaiah 45:6,7

 

However, for sure great afflictions will cause many people and Nations to turn to the GOD with the OMNIPOTENCE to SAVE and DELIVER out of harms way, and this will be the GOD they will serve and worship (Hosea 5:15).  I don’t think it’s necessary to reveal that this GOD will be the same GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage!

 

“Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.”  

Psalm 96:12,13

 

“What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?  Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?  Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;”   Psalm 114:5 – 7

 

The WISE will understand!

 

FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS!

 

P.P.S.

 

LORD, You were our help during Biblical days, and you did not pass the buck.  You were a Voice and a genuine Worker for us, and from the fruits of your labors our trifling forefathers were indeed saved and redeemed many times from the hands of their enemies, albeit in vain to perpetuate many sins against you.   But things have changed somewhat, and many of us have returned to you.  Therefore, once again, LORD GOD of Israel, save those of us who believe and trust in ONLY YOU to do your Will, but this time save us from the four corners of this Earth for your Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house:  Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.”   I Kings 8:33,34

 

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

 

“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”   Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL!  IT WILL HAPPEN!!!

“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

 

“And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob,

and I will look for him.”  

Isaiah 8:16,17

 

Let us put the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel back into our lives, our hearts, our thoughts, and in everything that we do.  Focusing on HIM and HIS Ways, as we come and go in our daily routines is ever so helpful in maintaining healthy spirits and acquiring strength and knowledge of HIS Paths of Righteousness.   This attitude certainly helps in making us meek, albeit but not weak, ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.

 

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.”   Zechariah 8:9

 

“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him

while he is near:”

Isaiah 55:6

“I will declare thy name unto my brethren: 

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

Psalm 22:22

 

LET US EXALT, PRAISE, AND SANCTIFY THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL IN TRUTH AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE THE WORLD FOREVERMORE!  AND LET US MAGNIFY HIS LAW, WHICH IS OUR ONLY TICKET INTO HIS KINGDOM, SO THAT ALL PEOPLES WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE AND WORSHIP KNOW THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES AND TO SERVE AND WORSHIP HIM ACCORDING TO HIS LAW, HIS WORD AND HIS WILL!

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Poetry and Prose Corner With A Message:

 

  AND THE WAIT GOES ON

 

THE CREATOR formed mankind and gave him a plant to treasure.

All HE required was obedience and Grace with his MAKER.

THE CREATOR WAITS…

 

MANKIND did not listen and did everything his way.

The one of a kind treasure he forfeited and his life he lost,

As he watched everything flood away.

THE CREATOR WAITS…

 

A NEW IDEA was born – one that would surely be successful.

This time the CREATOR would set aside a Special People all to HIMSELF.

SOMETHING WELL WORTH WAITING FOR…

 

IT ALL STARTED with Abraham,

whom the CREATOR brought out of Ur of the Chaldeans.

HE beckoned him on to the Land of Canaan, and told him that this Land

Would be especially his and for his SEED.

The CREATOR lovingly named the place the Land of Israel,

After Abraham's grandson who would come out of Egypt.

EXCITEDLY, THE CREATOR WAITED…

 

THE PLAN was that Israel would be HIS Covenant People

and live in a Land flowing with Milk and Honey,

the Glory of all lands.

Surely, the CREATOR could not contain HIMSELF.

BUT HE WAITED…

 

FINALLY THE CREATOR sent the third generation of Abraham down into Egypt

to make there of HIS People a Nation of Righteous Israelites. 

Then their numbers became their strength,

and the Egyptians feared for their lives.

They made the CREATOR GOD's People Slaves.

THE CREATOR WAITED…

 

AFTER A GREAT WHILE the CREATOR heard what was probably

Music to HIS Ears.  HE heard HIS Chosen Ones crying out to HIM

To Deliver them out of the House of Bondage.

HE LISTENED AND WAITED…

 

SURELY, HE said that this is an opportune time

To make a Holy and much FEARED HOLY NAME for HIMSELF.

The GOD of the Hebrews saved HIS People and led them

Into the Wilderness

where HE gave them HIS Righteous Walk of Life to live and do

and show forth HIS PRAISE for HIS Mighty Hand and ACTS down in Egypt.

AGAIN, THE CREATOR WAITED…

 

YES, THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL eventually gave the Nation of Israel

The Land of Canaan just as HE had promised.

But they failed HIM miserably just as the people HE had destroyed in the Flood.

However, true to HIS WORD, HE did not call for a second Flood.

HE did worse.

The CREATOR scattered the Children of Israel from their Land of Israel and cast them into the hands of the heathens for forsaking HIM and for serving false gods and for rejecting HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. 

They lived in sorrow, mourning, and in great Tribulations.

And the CREATOR returned to HIS Place.

TO WAIT…

 

IT HAS BEEN MILLENNIA, NOW, since the CREATOR scattered Israel

and caused their name and identity to be forgotten among men.  But lo and behold, throughout the four corners of the Earth,

the Children of Israel have awakened and have learned how their great sins effected their loving CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

when they chose to forget HIM and follow false gods that could not save.

Today, the SEED of Jacob/Israel is contrite

and seeks the ONE True and Living GOD of their fathers

for their FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, and SALVATION.

ISRAEL WAITS…

WAS ISRAEL EVER LEGITIMATE?

 

By Jeff Gates

The history of Israel as a geopolitical fraud will fill entire libraries as those defrauded marvel at how so few deceived so many for so long. Those duped include many Jews who—even now—identify their interests with this extremist enclave. 

Israeli leaders are wrong to worry about “de-legitimization.” They are right to fear that a long-deceived public is fast realizing that Israel’s founding was key to an ongoing deception.

The Invention of the Jewish People did not begin with Shlomo Sand’s 2009 bestseller by that title. There was no Exile says this Jewish scholar. Nor was there an Exodus. So how could there be a Return, the core premise of Israeli statehood?

If this patch of Palestinian land never rightly belonged to a mythical Jewish People, what then for the legitimacy of the “Jewish homeland.” And for that depiction by British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour in his November 1917 letter to Lord Rothschild?

Were Christians likewise seduced by Sunday school teachings reliant on the phony findings of Biblical archeologist William Albright? Shlomo Sand chronicles how in the 1920s Albright interpreted every excavation in Palestine to "reaffirm the Old Testament and thereby the New.”

In 1948, President Harry Truman, a Christian Zionist, was advised by Secretary of State George Marshall not to recognize this enclave as a state. This WWII general assured Truman that he would vote against him—and did.

That military tradition resurfaced in January 2010 when General David Petraeus dispatched a team to brief Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the perils that Israel still poses to U.S. national security. Mullen was reportedly shocked. (See: “The Petraeus Briefing”)

He should not have been surprised. Such insights are hardly new. More than six decades ago the Joint Chiefs of Staff cautioned Truman about the “fanatical concepts of the Jewish leaders” and their plans for “Jewish military and economic hegemony over the entire Middle East.” 

In December 1948, Albert Einstein and 27 prominent Jews urged us “not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.” They warned that a “Leader State” was the goal of the “terrorist party” that has governed Israel over all but a handful of the past 62 years.

The Joint Chiefs foresaw the “Zionist strategy will seek to involve [the U.S.] in a continuously widening and deepening series of operations intended to secure maximum Jewish objectives.”

Soon after Truman recognized Israel, his presidential campaign train was “refueled” by Zionist Jews with $400,000 in contributions ($3.6 million in 2010 dollars). Soon thereafter, Israel betrayed the U.S. by allying with the British and the French to invade Egypt.

Though London and Paris soon abandoned the operation, months more were required to dissuade Tel Aviv from pursuing their expansionist agenda then—as now—for Greater Israel.

Outraged by Israeli duplicity, Eisenhower sought help to rein them in.  He soon found that even then (as now) the Israel lobby dominated Congress. Thus the former Supreme Allied Commander appeared on television with an appeal directly to the American people. Then—unlike now—a U.S. Commander in Chief threatened to reduce assistance to Israel.

To revamp Israel’s tattered image, New York public relations expert Edward Gottlieb retained novelist Leon Uris to write Exodus. Jewish Zionists have routinely proven themselves skilled storytellers and masterful mythmakers.

This 1958 bestseller was translated into dozens of languages and quickly made into a movie for the 1960 Christmas season starring Paul Newman and featuring Peter Lawford, brother-in-law of the just-elected President John F. Kennedy. (See: “Time for an American Intifada?”)

The Myth of a Loyal Ally

Phil Tourney survived the June 8, 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that left 34 Americans dead and 175 wounded. The region-wide dynamics accompanying that provocative Six-Day land grab guaranteed the conflicts that remain so perilous to U.S. national security.

It was during this Israeli operation that Tourney gave a one-fingered salute to armed Israeli troops as they hovered in helicopters over the USS Liberty while preparing to rappel to the deck and, he surmises, kill the survivors and sink the ship.

Just then the captain aboard a nearby U.S. carrier scrambled jets to assist a vessel under attack by an “ally.” When Israeli intelligence intercepted the transmission, the helicopters fled only to have President Lyndon Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara recall our fighters.

Soon thereafter, Israeli torpedo boats pulled alongside the USS Liberty to inquire if those aboard needed assistance. Those same boats had just blown a hole in the hull, killing 25 Americans. Israeli machine-gunners had then strafed stretcher-bearers, firemen, life rafts and even the fire hoses—all clear war crimes. Only then did this ally display the chutzpah to ask if our servicemen required assistance.

Had that notorious land grab failed to advance the narrative of Israel as the victim, what might be the condition of U.S. national security today? Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently conceded the duplicity that continues to typify this “special relationship.”

As he confessed: "Our policy on Jerusalem is the same policy followed by all Israeli governments for 42 years, and it has not changed. As far as we are concerned, building in Jerusalem is the same as building in Tel Aviv."

In other words, the 1967 war was neither defensive nor preemptive but an outright taking of land that, one year later, Tel Aviv acknowledged as precisely what concerned the Pentagon 62 years ago.

In effect, Netanyahu confirmed that this relationship reflects multi-decade premeditation. The U.S. has since discredited itself by protecting this “ally” from the rule of law for its taking and brutal occupation of land that rightly belongs to others.

Even now, few know that Mathilde Krim, a former Irgun operative, was “servicing” our Commander-in-Chief in the White House the night the 1967 war began. Her husband, Arthur, then chaired the finance committee for the Democratic National Committee.  

Even now, few Americans know the role in that cover-up played by Admiral John McCain, Jr. Or the role still played in this sordid history by his son, Republican Senator John McCain III. )See: “McCain Family Secret: The Cover-up”)

Are those who champion this “state” the same belief-makers responsible for the myth of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction? Iraqi meetings in Prague? Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories? High-level Iraqi contacts with Al Qaeda? Iraqi yellowcake uranium from Niger?

Was any of that intelligence legitimate? Whose interests were served by deceiving the U.S. to wage war in the Middle East? By the Suez Crisis? By the Six-Day War? By covering up the attack on the USS Liberty?

Adhering to an Enemy?

How are U.S. interests served by treating Israel as a legitimate state? When was Israeli behavior anything other than duplicitous? At what point do we concede the common source of the storylines foisted on an imperiled global public?

Who created the narrative that saw us segue seamlessly from a global Cold War to a global War on Terrorism? Remember the promise of a post-Cold War “peace dividend”? Who induced the U.S. to wage a war whose costs could total $3 trillion, including $700 billion in interest?

Why is debt always the prize? At the end of WWII, the U.S. was home to 50% of the world’s productive power. Were we induced to hollow out our economy by the same consensus-shapers that induced us to wage war in the Middle East? Do these devastating dynamics trace to a common source?

Who benefits from the “Islamo” fascist narrative? Whose storyline—really—is The Clash of Civilizations? Who has long spied on the U.S. and routinely transferred to other nations our most sensitive defense technologies?

Who had the means, motive, opportunity and, importantly, the stable nation state intelligence required to perpetrate such a debilitating fraud from inside the U.S. government? And from inside other governments that joined the “coalition of the willing”?  

If not Israel and its supporters—who? In effect, are those now advocating an “unbreakable bond” with Israel giving aid and comfort to an enemy within?

Israel is right to worry. It was never legitimate. As both an enabler and a target of this fraud, the U.S. has an obligation to concede its source—and to secure the weapons of mass destruction now under the control of this enclave.

Israeli wins French prize for book questioning origins of Jewish people

 

Ha’aretz Israeli Newspaper

3/12/2009

 

Professor Shlomo Sand, the Tel Aviv University history professor and author of a controversial book on the genetic origins of the Jews, this week received a top critics prize from French journalists. Sand, whose book "When and How Was the Jewish People Invented? "ignited controversy in Israel and in Jewish circles, is the recipient of the Aujourd’hui Award, which is given to the best non-fiction political or historical work. The book, which was published by the Resling imprint, spent 19 weeks on the bestseller list in Israel. Though it has been in bookstores for just six months in France, it has thus far sold 25,000 copies, good enough to remain on the bestseller list. Sand’s book deals with questions that remain taboo in Israeli society, among them the ancestral origins of the Jewish people and the genetic lineage shared with modern-day Israelis. more.. e-mail

At NYU, devilish Shlomo Sand predicts the Jewish past

and pastes the Zionists

by Philip Weiss on October 17, 2009 ·

167 comments

Of all the events I’ve covered surrounding Jewish identity and Israel in the last year, none has given me so much pleasure as the lecture last night by Shlomo Sand at NYU on the Invention of the Jewish People. Most events I go to are grinding, awful, heartrending, often with lamentations and pictures of mutilated children. This one was pure intellectual deviltry of the highest order by a Pavarotti of the lecture hall. And while it was fiercely anti-Zionist and included references to the mutilated children, it left me in just an incredibly elated mood. For I saw real light at the end of the tunnel, and not the horrifying dimness that surrounds almost all other events that deal with Israel politics here– for instance with the neoconservative Weekly Standard’s disgusting pursuit of J Street.

This pleasure was entirely Shlomo Sand’s achievement. He walked by me going down to the lectern and I noticed his physical vanity at once. He had expensive shoes on, designer jeans or cords, a zipup black jacket and a black shirt under that unbuttoned to the sternum. He is lean and mid-60sish, and behaves like a player. His beard is cut in an interesting manner, he wears designer glasses. I wondered if he dyed his hair. All glorious devil.

Sand has an excitable, self-referential style, and he began the lecture by breaking his guitar. “Jewish history is not my field.” No, but once he had discovered that the story of the connection of the Jewish people to the Holy Land was a myth, he decided that he would secretly explore the history but not publish until he got tenure for doing other work. Because if he published this first, “there would not be any chance of being a full professor. Not only in Tel Aviv. But at NYU too.”

Everyone laughed, but Sand said, “That is not a joke. I must write the book after I see that no one could touch me really.” More devil. Though Sand is right. This is no joke.

Sand studies European history, but Israel has a separate department in every school for Jewish history, and Zionists run these departments. “I have not a right to write about Jewishness.” The Zionist history holds that the Jews have an ancient connection biblically to the land, and were exiled from the Middle East in 70 AD, in what became the Diaspora. The Jews of New York and Warsaw. Sand began to question this story when he saw archaeologists’ work about the early Christian times and also when he saw scientific data. The exile is absurd. The Romans persecuted the Jews. They didn’t exile them.

At this point came the first interruption by a Zionist. A bald man in the third row or so called out, “What about Bar Kochba?” And: the Jews weren’t exiled because they were killed.

Sand seemed to live for this interruption. He walked up to the audience with his eyes gleaming, and congratulated the man for his knowledge of the Bar Kochba revolt of 135 AD, after the Second Temple destruction, and agreed with him, but also dismissed him. Yes many Jews were killed. And for the rest of the lecture Sand would dance toward this man and tease him that he was Jewish—he was—and urge him to buy the book to discover the gaps in his knowledge, or by the end of the lecture, say that he would buy the book for him himself, to improve him. More deviltry.

Back to the exile myth. The expelled diasporic Jews went in a straight line north to Europe, made a right into the land between the Caspian and the Black Seas, Kazaria, and also north to Russia and Poland; and when they got there in the 1800s they made a u-turn and started back to Palestine. The absurdity of the myth is that there were always Jews in the Middle East. The Jews were peasants and mingled with other populations. The Jews were not passive actors. They were at times a majority in the Holy Land and conquerors of the Arabian peninsula before the Arabs, and of North Africa too. For a time, they did not have a bar against proselytization. The Maccabees were the first to undertake forced conversion. In the 8th century the Jews and the Muslim Berbers were likely the invaders of Spain.

Sand offered very little by way of evidence. You will find that in his “boring” book, he said. This was an aria not a chalktalk. The Jews of the Middle East made several kingdoms over the years. One in Yemen, another in Babylon, another in North Africa, where they fought the Arabs. Sand said he loves the curly hair of the Yemenite Jews. More deviltry, with some concupiscence thrown in.

The Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe originated in Kazaria. They were hugely successful and founded a great city, Kiev. We can claim to have founded Kiev, but not Jerusalem, he said. Because the Jews who lived in the Holy Land stayed in the Holy Land. Many of the people we now call Palestinians were originally Jews. The chance that someone who lives in Hebron today and speaks Arabic is a direct descendant of a Jew in ancient times is 1000 times greater than the possibility that I am descended from a Jew, Shlomo Sand declared.

Let’s move on from the mythology to the issue of national identity. Identity is formed by many many associations. “I don’t deny Jewish identity. I’m not fighting against someone’s identity. There is identity of homosexuals. They are not a people. We are composed of a lot of identities.” Two Catholic share a religious identity, but again, that is not a national identity with a tie to land.

Nationalism took root in human political development in the 1800s. The Germans and French began the project by inventing the idea of a German and French people. The French history books declared outright in the first sentence that the Gauls were their ancestors. It was a way to valorize the nation state, which was an essential part of modernity.

What is a people? A people generally shares a way of life, a language, a food, a geography. There is no Jewish language. Shlomo Sand stumbles proudly in English, while of course many of the people in the audience were Jews speaking English. Food the Israelis have–stolen from the Palestinians—and still you must say that there is an Israeli people. But they are not the Jewish people. They are Israeli people, and the Palestinians are Palestinian people. Both made by Zionism.

The Zionist project began inventing the idea of a Jewish people in the 1870s as a reflection of other nationalisms. The Zionists turned to the Bible for the foundational myth. The biblical myths are taught in Israeli schools from before children are taught mathematics and language–taught about the biblical associations of Jews to this land. But the Exodus is a complete myth. “As a historian, I try and predict the past. I’m not a prophet.” And what are the true predictions of the past: at the supposed time of the Exodus, the Egyptians also controlled Canaan. The kingdom of David and Solomon was not a kingdom at all, but a small settlement around Jerusalem.

Sand had run over his 45 minutes. In the Question and Answer period, his passion and intellectual majesty announced themselves. He sought to engage with the Zionists in the crowd, and did so out of moral fervor. When Sand said that Israel was not a democracy, and a Zionist called out, “It is a flawed democracy,” Sand bellowed. No: a democracy is founded on the idea that the people are the sovereign, that the people own the state. That is the first principle of a republic going back to Rousseau. Liberalism and civil rights are not the core. Yes, Israel is a liberal society. It tolerates Shlomo Sand’s heresy, for instance, and puts him on TV. But it is a liberal ethnocracy.

Down the row from me were two Arabs. I recognized the man from other events I have been to. I noticed how fulfilled they were by the talk, how quietly approving, and it was in this connection that we saw Sand’s passion: on behalf of the Palestinians. This part of the lecture brought tears to my eyes, it was so forceful and unapologetic. The idea that Joe Lieberman has a right to move to Israel tomorrow and a Palestinian whose ancestors have lived there for centuries cannot is an outrage, Sand said. But for 50 years the Palestinian Israelis were afraid to speak out.

“They were afraid because of the Nakba. They were afraid because of the military regime. Today this is a generation of young Palestinian Israelis that stop to be afraid. They become more anti-Israel in their politics the more they become Israelis.”

Ravishing fire.

Sand said that Gaza was just an intimation of the violence that might come when the Palestinians declare that they want a genuine democracy, a state of their own citizens in Palestinian-dominated Galilee. These are young Palestinian Israelis who don’t want to be part of the West Bank or of Gaza. They will be like the Kosovars of Serbia, who when the Serbs started to make an ethnic regime of the former Yugoslavia, did not want to be part of Albania, with whom they share religious connections, no they wanted to be their own country. (And got it, by the way, 60 years after the world falsely promised the Palestinians that they could have a state.) “They will build in Galilee a state of their citizens. That will start to be the end of Israel. Israel won’t let Galilee become a state of its citizens. It will be a mass murder, I’m afraid.”

Don’t we want to get past the idea of the nation-state? Of course we do, Sand said, but that is the era we are in. And tell that to the Palestinians. They want a state. Sand is for the two-state solution because the Palestinians ought to get a state after being denied it forever. As soon as the occupation, which has denied these Palestinians any civil or human rights for 42 years—more fire!—is ended, that is the day we throw ourselves into the project of making a confederation of Israel with Palestine and Jordan. The one-state solution is a utopia. “Utopia has to direct politics. Not replace politics. It’s too dangerous.” (Something like Hussein Ibish’s new book in that.)

When Sand spoke to Palestinian professors at Al Quds University, they told him to speak Hebrew, because they had all learned Hebrew in Israeli jails. And he told them that just because Israel had begun with a great crime did not mean that it had not begun. “Even a child that was born from a rape has a right to live. ’48 was a rape. But something happened in history. We have to correct and repair a lot of things.” The next day the Palestinian papers had his rape line in big headlines.

You have not talked about anti-Semitism, or self-hatred, said another Zionist, with a cap on. “I am anti-racist. And an anti-anti-semite,” he said. “But look at me, do you think I hate the Jewish?” More devil eyes flashing. “I don’t hate myself… I hate the Jewish people? But that doesn’t exist. How can I hate something that doesn’t exist?”

More Zionist claptrap from the claque: You say that a Jew can’t marry non-Jews in Israel, but two men can’t marry each other in this country! Sand laughed. Men should be able to marry each other here if they want to, and anyone should be able to marry anyone else in Israel. Why won’t the state recognize such marriages? Not because of the orthodox. No: the secular Jews gave the rabbis the power over marriage when they founded the Jewish state in ’48. They did so because “they were not sure of their identity, and needed religious criteria.”

What do you think of Israel Shahak, whose work says that ethnocentrism and chauvinism are built into the Jewish religion? Sand said that Shahak was a chemist and a man of tremendous moral force, but he didn’t know the material. (I say he’s right about this; all religious doctrines are interlarded with racism.)

Why are you not on Charlie Rose? asked a man with a beard. The man said, I watch Charlie Rose every night and I’m up to here with the Zionism on the show. He held his hand at his neck. Not just the Israelis, the American journalists who imbibe Zionism. Sand didn’t seem to know who Charlie Rose was. He has been on lots of Israeli TV shows. And been 19 weeks on the bestseller list in Israel. “Also in France.”

I thought, Why has Yivo not asked Sand to debate Michael Walzer? Two years back at Yivo/the Center for Jewish History, Walzer declared that the Jews are a people, a people like no other, without national borders. They have maintained a political community for 2000 years without geographical sovereignty, through a religious-legal structure. Interesting ideas. And it would be a fabulous debate. Where are you chickenshit Yivo, when these great ideas are bursting forth from the Jews who hate what Israel is doing to our identity?

I hope I am conveying something of the power of this event, and its incredible optimism and second sight. Sand challenged every Jew in the room to reimagine the future. “Most of the Jews [in the world today] are a product of conversion… I see the shame. And it is a shame. If you are born in the 20th century, and we were all born in the 20th century– to base your identity on biology.”

I thought as always of the American Jewish project: to end the Israel lobby and to end the myth of Jewish outsiderness. Sand had addressed this too. “The destiny of Israel. And the destiny of the Middle East depnds a lot on you, Americans.” This was a subject for its own lecture. But it was necessary for the Americans now to “save us from ourselves. I’m not joking about this.”

Do you fear for your life? someone asked.

“I’m worried in New York. Not in Tel Aviv. It’s not a joke. Really, I’m not joking.”

End Israel Lobbies Pervasive and Damaging

Influence in US Politics

Debbie Menon Salem-Newsw.com

Support for Israel is not only tragic and immoral, it is also extremely damaging to Americans.

(DUBAI, UAE) - Mark Perry in his recent article in Foreign Policy journal "Petraeus wasn't the First," describes succinctly, the opposition to U.S. support for Israel, the rationale for it, and the cover-up on it among American publishers[1].

"It is extremely valuable reading" recommends Alison Weir, the the executive director of IF AMERICANS KNEW, “it corrects misconceptions that so many Americans have on the causation of U.S. support for Israel - including even some who are otherwise well informed on Palestine” she asserts[2].

Mark Perry is correct in all respects, of course. It is all old history, as he quotes Joe Hoar of reminding him. Yes, please read it... again... but like Joe Hoar correctly said, "What's the news here? Hasn't this been said before?” and hasn’t it all been done before ?

Has man ever learned from history? I think it says something about the nature of Man when you reflect that Einstein said “that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Elements, vital elements, of the US Government have always opposed the concept of a Zionist Israel, ever since State and Defense advised Truman not to sign on... which he did with reservations, qualifications and restricting conditions, which were immediately and have long since been ignored.

Treason by Members of the United States Congress by Anthony Lawson

 

But, none of these vital elements of governance, govern the Zionist Corporate controlled US Press, Entertainment, Academic, and Public (Mis)information Media where the grass roots of American public opinion are planted and from which the contentedly uninformed American masses take their opinions and feelings and the corporate and business advertising budgets which drive them. Nor do they control the free-spending lobbies who buy and sell Legislators and Politicians on Capitol Hill with the same ease with which they trade banks and corporations on the Stock Market. Go figure!

While this is well documented, the sad fact is that many editors, journalists, analysts and publishers even in the so-called American progressive media today either still do not know these facts or have chosen not to inform the public of them.

This, in America, has for long been the province of the Press, Academe, the News and Infotainment Industries and the various commercial and advertising driven "regulated" and mainstream (Mis and Dis) Information services.

Recent "Hate Speech" Legislation in the US Legislature has already eviscerated the freedom of speech guarantees of the First Amendment. Try to persuade me that abuse and vilification of Islam and Christianity will get you the same treatment in Court that open and objective political criticism of Israel will get you, and we shall have a perfect example of the power of legislative lobbies in controlling the Law of the USA, and restricting free speech.

The recent 300-36 vote by the US House Representatives rejecting the UN sponsored Goldstone report on Gaza and the AIPAC initiated “Letter to the President” signed by 76 senators pressing him to back off from Israel, and repeating the “unbreakable bond” mantra, is the best evidence you have of who controls US Middle East Policy and how powerless the US President is to serve his own country’s interests. George Washington warned in his farewell address against "passionate attachment" for an ally[3][4][5].

Yes, it is this ally’s powerful lobbying and its pervasive influence on American politics, policy and institutions that these and other writers have long written valuable books about, and revealing facts about the extent of the stranglehold of the Israel Lobby over US Congress and the US Administration.

It's long past time to end one of the most damaging and pervasive cover-ups in the U.S. today and time for people and institutions to confront Israel’s lobbies.

[GUILT OR NO GUILT, THE TRUTH WILL BE TOLD!  T.Y. Editor]

 

A BILL THAT PROHIBITS SCHOOLS FROM TEACHING CLASSES

DESIGNED TO TEACH STUDENTS OF COLOR ABOUT THEIR HERIAGE AND HISTORY

On May 11, 2010 Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed HB 2281 an ethnics studies ban into law, a bill that prohibits schools from teaching classes designed to teach students of color about their heritage and history. The governor holds the belief –as with many other whites- such classes promote resentment and encourage minority students to want to "overthrow" the U.S. government. Such classes, the bill says, advocate ethnic solidarity instead of treating students as individual people. State schools chief Tom Horne, who has been pushing for the bill for years, said that ethnic studies encourage students of color to believe they've been oppressed by white people. Horne told Yahoo news: Public schools should not be encouraging students to resent a particular race, he said. "It's just like the old South, and it's long past time that we prohibited it," Horne said. A Brewer spokesperson defended the governor's position: "The governor believes … public school students should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate other races or classes of people," Paul Senseman said.

         Within the above story the Arizona governor and her supporter attempts to rationally justify denying non-white students a racially affirming and accurate history of themselves. This story only made national news because of the already heated national debate regarding the Arizona immigration bill with racist implications. While some may see this latest story as being additional evidence that the state of Arizona is very racist, however the Governors held position and subsequent action is not uncommon. It is one held and practiced by many white elites particularly those that are tasked with comprising the U.S educational system.

It’s no unintentional oversight that the U.S educational system withholds 95% of the history and contributions of African Americans from it curriculum.

As a means of maintaining the current statuesque generations of African Americans have been deliberately educated to respect only white culture-- and rendered totally ignorant of their own past achievements and history.  One of the most disheartening experiences is to visit public schools named for honored, Black civil rights leaders and discover that routinely and consistently, Black students from kindergarten through twelfth grade are deliberately educated to respect every culture except their own. 

When America ’s schools were integrated, there were no serious efforts on the part of the local or national governments to incorporate into the curriculum any of the many contributions and achievements made by Africans and African Americans. Therefore, the gravely needed information about Black history and culture, needed to affirm and nurture Black students’ self-esteem and aspirations is deliberately withheld from their educational development. Essentially, the esteem and educational aspirations of Black students are being systematically destroyed by a curriculum and educational system designed to inspire only its White students. Consequently, within America ’s public schools, Black students must not only deal with common peer pressure and personality consolidation but also deal with an educational system that fails to give them racially affirming information about themselves.

Given that children are very impressionable, easily hurt, and discouraged, the lack of attention to Black history and achievements may gravely affect many Black students.  The impact of this exclusion adversely affects the self-esteem, self-perception, and stigmatizes many African American students, leading to crippling self-doubt, and deep-seated self-hatredThis condition far too often eventually gives way to anger and/or resentment towards an education system that belittles Black intellectual ability, causing many Black students to develop poor attitudes towards their education. It is a miracle that any Black student survives such a debilitating school experience in which they are subjected to a curriculum that almost totally omits their contributions to the human story. Who can truly express surprise that some Black students actively resist learning or that their will or ability to learn diminishes given such a racially biased educational setting?

 During one’s school years, the practice of self-love can be difficult for all students, but it is particularly more difficult for African American students who have no access to the kind of education that makes them feel good about themselves, thus inspiring them to develop their potential.  For most African Americans their schools are the places where they first learn how little they are valued in America .  Learning seldom takes place in situations where students are left ignorant of themselves and they are taught to ignore the historical reality of their own unique cultural group.

Moreover, this is not an accident. This practice is an essential factor in maintaining the current social dominance of the ruling class.  For a ruling class to maintain its social dominance over its suppressed group, it must condition its suppressed group from a very early age to accept their own subordinate status and to adhere to the authority of the dominant group. To do so, the education given to the minority group from the time that they are youths must be the type that denies them a racially and culturally affirming curriculum. When the suppressed minority population is denied a racially and culturally affirming education, even the brightest among them may have little, if any, hope of extracting themselves from their assigned low, dominated position in life.

While some African Americans students are able to develop the mental fortitude to complete their education, far too many are systematically mortified by an educational curriculum designed to perpetuate White superiority.

            The American educational system’s failure to adequately serve African American students as is so routinely done for its White students affirms and reflects the reality that the existing educational system is not isolated from the existing cultural-socio- eco-political system of the United States, which is racist.  This is being deliberately done to African Americans because the educational system represents part of America 's institutionalized racism.

 Schools are tools of the government design to mold students’ character accordingly. As students African American are being systematically educated to believe and to accept white superiority.  It is an illusion to believe that the U.S. educational system is race and politically neutral.  Nothing could be further from the truth. The American educational system is not isolated from the existing cultural-socio- eco-political system of the United States , which is racist.  There is no way to separate the educational system from its surrounding racist cultural and political system.  The American educational system is a key part of America ’s institutionalized racism.

Black students are always part of studies on intellectual performance.  However, very few studies focus primarily on their emotional growth and development as it relates to what they are being taught about themselves.  It is widely known in psychological and medical circles that the fashion industry’s promotion of beauty as ‘stick thin’ may be damaging to the self image and health of young girls.  When young girls decide to look like underweight models, it subtly pressures them if necessary, to starve themselves to achieve that look.  It is also well established that young boys, when exposed to numerous images of violence in movies, television, and video games may become desensitized over time and develop violent aggressive behavior because of this exposure.  Similarly, Black students’ psychological distress and related loss of motivation to learn results from forced participation in an immeasurably mortifying and biased educational system.  They are so dependent on it and vulnerable because they are subjected to it for seven hours a day from the age of five through eighteen.  Consequently, they must constantly resist the negative perceptions of being Black implicit in an educational curriculum almost exclusively dedicated to White ideologies, achievements, contributions and history.  Clearly, considerable damage can be done to the mental health of many Black students within such a large time frame.

Dr. Joseph White, a professor in psychology from the University of California at Irvine , found that educational motivation among Black students is apparent during their early school years, but by the third grade many begin to develop disaffection with school.  For some, it isn't until the fourth grade that their teachers start to see the warning signs of a profound disaffection towards their education.  Moreover, by the fifth or sixth grade, many Black students demonstrate a total loss of enthusiasm towards school and even equate academic success with “acting White.” 

 Despite their socioeconomic levels, Black students begin school equally motivated and with test scores equal to or even higher, than those of White students.  However, research shows that the longer they stay in school, the less motivated they become.  And by the time they reach high school many develop a total disinterest with education, fall behind, and subsequently drop out of school altogether. 

 WHAT IS BEING WITHELD FROM THE EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF
BLACK STUDENTS?

The notion that African Americans have not contributed significantly to the world is totally inaccurate.  Despite cultural traumas wrought by the injustice of racism and slavery, African Americans have made significant contributions to society and, indeed, to the world through advances in technology, medicine, science, arts, and the humanities.  The following is an incomplete list of some of the astounding and much needed positive information that is being systematically withheld from the educational development of African American students.  The following are all African Americans, past and present.  Look closely at the modern contributions, and think about why this much needed information is kept from the educational development of Black students.

·        The first open heart surgery was performed by Dr. Daniel Hale Williams

·        Dr. Ralph Bunche was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950 for his work in ending a war between Israel and the Arab nations.

·        In1885, two Black inventors, L S. Burridge and N.R. Marsham, invented the typewriter

            These deliberate omissions in the American educational system deprive African American students of the opportunity to realize worthiness of their own history and one that can serve as a reference for their aspirations.  As such, Blacks are robbed of a vital need in the educational process.  When the impressionable mind of a Black child is not able to see Black people on the pages of their text, this factor operates as a hidden curriculum which insinuates that Blacks contributed nothing at all to their society or the world. 

This suppressed information is vitally needed in the educational development of Black children because it allows them to find themselves upon the map of human geography; it is where they reference their potential and capabilities – gaining pride in themselves and their race – thus inspiring within themselves the ability to pursue their highest potential in spite of obstacles.  When we fail to teach Black students about their significant contributions as a race, they grow up besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy, ignorant of themselves, distrusting themselves, doubting themselves, sub-consciously hating themselves, and, invariably, fighting among themselves.  Whether it is deliberate or not, an attack has been mounted through the educational system against Black students -- an attack that assures progressively weaker generations.  Unless there is a deliberate strategy to suppress Black people and maintain White superiority, why else do they feel the need to conceal the significant contributions of Black people in the educational development of Black children?  Why did they find it a necessity to remove Black people from the respectful commentary of the record of world history and then proceed to teach Black children from an educational curriculum that destroys their self-images? 

The American educational system’s failure to adequately serve African American students as is so routinely done for its White students affirms and reflects the reality that the existing educational system is not isolated from the existing cultural-socio- eco-political system of the United States, which is racist.

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

 

 

O BLESS OUT GOD, YE PEOPLE,

AND MAKE THE VOICE OF HIS PRAISE TO BE HEARD

 

"Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.

 

Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

 

Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

 

He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him. He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

 

O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard: Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

 

For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

 

Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

 

I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows, Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble. I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

 

Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.

 

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me."   Psalm Sixty-sixth Chapter

 

 

O GOD, TO WHOM VENGEANCE BELONGETH,

SHEW THYSELF…THOU JUDGE OF THE EARTH

 

"O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud. LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

 

They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage. They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless. Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

 

Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see? He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

 

The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

 

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

 

But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

 

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

 

When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

 

Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off."   Psalm Ninety-fourth Chapter

 

""   Isaiah 26:10

 

 

I SAID UNTO THE LORD, THOU ART MY GOD:

HEAR THE VOICE OF MY SUPPLICATIONS, O LORD

 

"Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man; Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war. They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah. Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.

 

The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.

 

I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD. O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle. Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.

 

As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

 

Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him. I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence."   Psalm One hundredth fortieth Chapter

 

 

I WILL EXTOL THEE, MY GOD, O KING;

AND I WILL BLESS THY [HOLY] NAME

FOR EVER AND EVER

 

"O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us:

but by thee only will we make mention of thy name."

                                                                            Isaiah 26:13

 

"…LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee,

in heaven above, or on earth beneath,

who keepest covenant and mercy

with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart:"

I Kings 8:23

 

"For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD?

who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?

God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,

and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him."

Psalm 89:6,7

 

"I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

 

One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

 

The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

 

The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

 

The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

 

My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever."   Psalm One hundredth forty-fifth Chapter

 

 

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

 

"Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee:

hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

 

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth

for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood,

and shall no more cover her slain."

Isaiah 26:20,21

 

"The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

 

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

 

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

 

O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

 

Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers. Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots: Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.

 

Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

 

The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

 

And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

 

And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.  And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

 

And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

 

In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

 

 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?"   Isaiah Second Chapter

KING SOLOMON'S PRAYER

 

LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart: Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:

 

For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron: That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.

 

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

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,

he will not depart from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

 

The works in this section of the JOURNAL are for our children.  I am delighted to include them, as these activities will serve to enlighten our youth about the “Old Testament” GOD of Israel and HIS concern for HIS Ways of Righteousness and for HIS Love for HIS People.  I encourage parents to read and interact with their children as they make efforts to answer the questions, complete the Word Search, and read the stories in this section.  Now, monthly, we really do have appropriate literature and activities for our Hebrew Israelite children.  In time, I shall add other things for them to do that will increase their knowledge and make learning fun. 

 

Feel free to copy this section and staple it together in the form of a booklet.  Take the time to design a cover page (even using Clip Art) and TYPE your child’s name at the bottom.  Make the activities fun and challenging as you get involved with them.

Words are written vertically and horizontally and some are truly challenging to find – maybe because some are written backwards or might have two words that take on two directions.

 

Only a good “eye” will enable you to find all the words.  For neatness and legibility, you might want to use a single line to cross out each word found rather than circling it, and consider giving each player a different colored pencil.

 

***

 

Parents, you might want to copy the “Word Search” and take turns with your children to complete this puzzle.  And to make the fun even more exciting, play with a one-minute timer, as you search for each word.  If players cannot find their words within the allotted time, then it’s the next player’s turn and the unfound words can be used by the next player(s). 

 

Reward one point per word found.  Let the youngest child start first.  Each player selects his/her own word, or the words can be written on small pieces of paper and randomly pulled (with eyes closed) from a bag or hat.  To encourage vocabulary development, for certain words give one extra point to the children who can define their words.  Parents will determine which words are to be defined.

 

NOW, see who can rack up the most points!

 

ENJOY!

 

(By all means, do copy the puzzle and use the “Font Size” that suits your purpose.)

 

***

In the future, if Brothers and Sisters would like to create a “Word Search” of their own, I would be delighted to include it in the next JOURNAL.   And even suggestions for a Word Search are always welcome.

HOW MUCH DO OUR CHILDREN KNOW

ABOUT THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL (THE CREATOR GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB),

THE HISTORY OF THE HEBREW ISRAELITES,

AND OUR RIGHTEOUS WAY OF LIFE?

 

“…God said moreover unto Moses,

Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers,

the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,

hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever,

and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

Exodus 3:15

 

"Gather the people together, men, and women, and children,

and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn,

and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:

And that their children, which have not known any thing,

may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God,

as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it."

Deuteronomy 31:12,13

 

This added portion to The LawKeepers JOURNAL is to enlighten our children and provide parental/child interaction with regard to important events in the “Old Testament.”  It is my hope that these questions will provide the means for parents and children to study Scripture and enjoy quality time together.

 

***

 

THE QUESTIONS ARENA IS FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS TO RESEARCH, REFLECT, AND DISCUSS TOGETHER:

  

QUESTIONS TEN…631 - 640 for the MAY / JUNE 2010 JOURNAL… for ages ten (10) and above:

 

631.

In which year after the Children of Israel were come out of the Land of Egypt did Aaron the Priest die?

 

632.

Where did the GOD of Israel Command Aaron the Priest to go and to die there?

 

633.

How old was Aaron when he died?

 

634.

When Aaron was stripped of his garments, on whom did the Holy ONE say to put them on?

 

635.

What did GOD Command the Israelites to give to the Levites of their inheritance?

 

636.

What are Cities of Refuge?

 

637.

Why is it so important to have Cities of Refuge?

 

638.

How many Cities of Refuge were given to the Levites?

 

639.

How were the Cities of Refuge divided among the Israelites?

 

640.

How many cities in all were given to the Levites?

 

***

By all means, Parents and Children should feel free to respond and send answers to me for posting in the next LawKeepers’ JOURNAL.  And do include your name, city, and state.  By the way, the answers must be in the form of complete sentences.   Afraqueen@AOL.COM

 

SUGGESTION:

 

On one side of index cards, have children write individual questions, and on the other side write the answers to the questions.  Just imagine how knowledgeable our children will be after researching for the answers to all these questions.   CHILDREN SHOULD BE SURE TO TAKE THEIR ANSWERS FROM THE SCRIPTURES WITHOUT IMAGINING THEM and include the book, chapter, and verse where the answers were found.  From time to time, they can shuffle the cards and go over the questions to see if they are able to recall the correct responses.  This activity should not be a chore, but children should have fun with the questions and challenge their friends and siblings to see how much they know about the “Old Testament.”  By the way, the numbers of the questions need not always be in order.

 

***

 

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,

that thou shalt be no priest to me:

seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”

Hosea 4:6

Since starting to write Children’s stories for The LawKeepers JOURNAL, I have grown to love this task for they also Exalt Our Holy ONE of Israel, and they tell rose-colored stories in the process because, with GOD’s Blessings, we will indeed lead better and happier lives upon our return to our heritage.  I believe this with all my heart! Then, we will enjoy the Righteous lifestyles that you read about in these stories and live in a tranquility, Peace, and Happiness that only the Holy ONE of Israel can bring to fruition.   And accordingly, we will one day guard this utopia that will thrive in the LIGHT of GOD’s LAW, and we will eliminate those who threaten its existence.   This won’t just be about FEARING the Holy ONE to follow HIS Ways, it will be about tasting a divine lifestyle and having it no other way.

CLOSING SCRIPTURE EXALTING THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL:

 

"And thou didst divide the sea before them,

so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land;

and their persecutors thou threwest into the deeps,

as a stone into the mighty waters.

 

Moreover thou leddest them in the day by a cloudy pillar;

and in the night by a pillar of fire, to give them light

in the way wherein they should go.

 

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:

 

And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger,

and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst,

and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land

which thou hadst sworn to give them."

Nehemiah 9:11 – 15

 

"Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God.

 

Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty,

and the terrible God, who keepest covenant and mercy, l

et not all the trouble seem little before thee, that hath come upon us,

on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets,

and on our fathers, and on all thy people,

since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.

 

Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us;

for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly:"

Nehemiah 9:31 - 33

MOTHERS WITH SONS IN PRISON

 

MWSIP (Mothers with sons in prison) is striving to embrace all mothers of different races, color, creed and nationalities worldwide to bridge the gap that separates them from their sons within the prison systems with unconditional love.

 

***

 

A Mother's Release Day

 

Freedom not only comes physically, but it originates from the heart. The anticipation of the release day for your son is also the release day for the mother. When your son goes into prison, you as his mother go in with him without even being aware of it until it's time for him to come out.

 

There's tons of unexpected emotions that happens when it gets near the release day for your son. You have occupied for the duration of his time that small little corner within the spiritual walls of that prison. A small voice from above speaks to you near that time and tells you "you can come out now".

 

Severe fear sets in and you find yourself glued to a placed that your hearts been in for the time he has been there. You fear you're leaving him! How can I come out and he's still there? The small voice speaks again..."you can come out now." the fear intensifys and you begin to cryin uncontrollably. Your inside screams... "I CANT' LEAVE HIM, I'M SCARED!" After forcefully shaking until your bones start to hurt, with a light that shines beside you, you step forward into the silhouette, and immediately, your son steps out behind you.

 

Joy unspeakable! You're at the finish line on your mark waiting for the green light, then waiting for the gun to go off to fly. A mixture of emotions starts from joy to gladness to anticipation to fear to being elated to just plain ole crazy inside.

 

You've been there for him every minute, everyday, even his day of release, you want to be there not realizing until it hits you that this is your release day too. Words will never be able to explain or capture that moment in your heart what you feel. You give up on trying to describe the feeling. You simply result to "just happy". Every minute is so special to you as well as him. All past events are just that, past events. They don't mean anything anymore.

 

The pain leaves your eyes; the wisdom sets in along with experience. Now the dove inside you and the eagle inside him is released-----GO FLY!!!!!!

 

A Mother's Day In Court

 

The first time I ever experienced screaming from the inside out. You're helpless. You've lost all control, the mercy lies on the court. But what can you do? This is the most helpless time you can experience. The Life of your child lays in someone else's hands, a total stranger. A person who has no knowledge of the heart of your son. It's like someone literally snatches a baby from your arms to do with him what they want to do with him. You can only scream from the inside out. Heart wrenching as it is, again, what can you do but beg for the mercy of the court. "Somebody's mercy, anybody's mercy"!

Everyone in the courtroom are strangers. They only know the crime and the crime knows them. But everyone, this place, this dream, you are unfamiliar with. All of the decisions without my permission come through the court.

 

What about my decision, my suggestion, my opinion or even my thoughts? This is my son! No body cares, nor do they want to hear them. All I want to do is take my boy home with me, but fate is not on my side this time. The worst day of my life was the day in court, because a part of me was taken away to a cold, unsafe, non-caring place of nowhere. Now my son is gone.

 

A Mother's Travel

 

The road to your left is the road of sorrow and grief. The road that veers off to your right is the road of heartbreak and pain. The road that goes toward the north, is the road of fear, the road that goes south is the road of unfamiliar. All these roads curve, twist, and turn.

 

They eventually end up merging into the one-way street that the mother travels during the entire time her son is in prison, which leads toward his heart. Roadblocks are in the millions all across these roads. Dead end streets are deceitful, because they are without warning. Where is the end of the road and when will I get there?

 

The end is there but is it near? Is the end of the road bright or is it dim? Who will judge that? Some roads are under construction, they take forever. Some have detours, which brings on confusion. Some are full of red lights. No matter where you travel to, to see your son, believe that there is an end to those long roads. The road will end in this world but never in your heart.

 

I traveled miles to visit my son and miles to be that voice on the outside for him, as well as support. You don't support the crime committed, you support the love for him. If I had to do it all over again, I would travel those same roads all over again. I would go down those same streets. It was the beginning of our destiny.

It’s a sad state of affairs to have to be one of these mothers.  It’s even more of a poignant matter knowing that more often than not, the fathers of these boys are right there with their sons, strung out on drugs, or dead.  But there is hope:

 

“Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.”

Psalm 142:6,7

 

“I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee,

and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison,

and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”

Isaiah 42:6,7

DON’T COUNT THE INCARCERATED BROTHERS AND SISTERS OUT!

 

In my last correspondence with Brother Malakim, he informed me that brothers, as young as sixteen years of age, are being incarcerated.  He wants his freedom in order to counsel our youth.  The following is what he wrote concerning this most poignant issue:

 

“…I want to do more because there are so many young children coming to prison now.  They are locking them up at 16 years old now.  They are building two more prisons, and they are not for me, because I’m already here.  The young people should wake up and see what’s gong on, and I don’t understand why they will not do that.

 

I want to render myself to them because they do need someone to look up to.

 

The LORD GOD of this whole universe is so good to me.  I have to do the right thing.”

 

It has been suggested that we get out to the prisons and befriend those in the jails [across the country] and, of course, give them reason to hope, for we know that Our Holy ONE of Israel can indeed obtain their release if they will turn to HIM and be obedient to HIS WORD. 

 

“Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me?

lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

 

“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant,

that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD,

and stay upon his God.

 

“Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks:

 walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled.

This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.”

Isaiah 50:9 – 11

 

“Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them,

that ye may prosper in all that ye do.”

Deuteronomy 29:9

 

Turning to the CREATOR GOD couldn’t be more what prospering entails.   And “obedience to HIM and to HIS LAW” is the pinnacle of success - not the imaginations of our hearts that will in the end only prove to cause us great pain and suffering.  What we “think” would be the last thing the incarcerated would need to hear, and they’d probably see through it anyway. 

 

Should you take the time to visit with them, PLEASE, PLEASE show these Brothers GOD’s Way of Life, and share the reasons for our downfall with them and what Our CREATOR requires that we do to rise out of this Hell.

Subject: Urgent Need for Yisraelite Leaders and Teachers

 

Shalom,

 

Thank you for your inquiry.  I am responding to you and to all Yisraelite leaders and teachers.

 

There is indeed an urgent need for teachers and leadership at area prisons.  At this time, however, I do not have any inmates that I am corresponding with at an Ohio prison.  If you do know of any incarcerated in Ohio, I would be happy to add them to our newsletter mailing list.

 

To provide some background, my name is Peninnah Baht Zion.  I am the Director of Daughters of Zion, Inc. and editor of the Beth OR prison newsletter.  We publish a monthly newsletter and provide tanahks and other Yisraelite publications for them.

 

We have been publishing the newsletter for a little over a year now and the one theme that is always expressed by the inmates is the need for leadership.

 

The inmates who are reaching out to us are dedicated men, who have by some unfortunate turn of events found themselves in the belly of the beast.

 

I know from their correspondence that it is a hard life, especially for adherent Yisraelites. 

 

The brothers and sisters are striving against insurmountable odds to keep the laws of Yah in captivity within captivity.

 

Struggles with dietary issues and the need for instruction are major concerns.  They need local advocates to assist them.

 

They need leadership to stay strong in prison.  Christian and Muslim organizations are strong in the prisons.  However, the Yisraelite population has no organizational structure to influence and advocate for them.  This is primarily because, thank Yah, their numbers are very small.

 

Listed above is a contact person for each of the facilities that we are in communication with.   If your camp is located near one of these prisons, please arrange a visit to teach a group.  They would be happy to receive instruction for one day, one week, or one hour a month. 

 

Please respond if you can help.
