Isaiah 42:21

 

“Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:  That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy sons and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.  Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.”   Deuteronomy 6:1 - 3

EXALTATION OF THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL:

 

Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord;

neither are there any works like unto thy works.

 

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

and shall glorify thy name.

 

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

 

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

 

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

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE LAWKEEPERS, CO.:

 

 

ELECTION DAY

 

On November 5, 2002………….All across America registered voters will cast their ballot for candidates and causes.  The evening news on every network will keep viewers informed of all the critical races across the country.

 

Two years ago George Bush stole the election but people still believe in the system.  During his first twenty months in office primarily all that George Bush has done is jump on “Air Force 1” and go politicking for votes for Republicans.

 

The battle in this election is the battle over who will control Congress, the Democrats or the Republicans.

 

This year hopefully, Congress will allow discussion of Congressman John Conyer’s Reparations Bill HR40.  Better yet, Reparations should be on the national ballot next year.  Now that would get voters to the polls.

 

I close with a scripture and prayer:

 

“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],”

 

“Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”

 

“He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”

PSALM 2:2,3,4

 

May the MOST HIGH ELOHIM cleanse us all from our sins, transgressions and iniquities.

 

Forgive us for going astray, a whoring after other gods.

 

Guide and lead us in the direction that you would have us to go.

 

 

YIHOVAH, we pray that you would put within us a clean heart and an up-right spirit.

 

 

Shalom and Shalom,

Tribute to the New Moon Revised:

 

PLEASE TAKE PART IN “SIGHTING” THE NEW MOON

 

<<<The First Day of the Month>>>

 

START THE NEXT NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF

 

<<<NOVEMBER 5,6,7, 2002>>>

 

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.   Just imagine not being able to “see” the moon at all.  How then could it be appointed 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:”

 

***

 

“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!  Whether the Moon shines on its own or with the aid 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.  The only problem that presents itself is cloud coverage that prevents the ability to see the New Moon Crescent.   Nonetheless, one can easily distinguish the New Moon Crescent “Sighting” 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.  Thus, 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, and accept it!

 

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 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 and Ezekiel 45:17), and when HE has HIS Temple rebuilt, then we will again be able to resume this service.

 

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.

SOME QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

 

“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 have good success.”   Joshua 1:8

 

When the Holy ONE had Joshua advise the Israelites to meditate in HIS Law “day and night” isn’t this expressing the seriousness, significance, and consequences of the matter?  And if not, how would you explain Joshua 1:8?

 

***

 

“Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here to day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.”   Deuteronomy 12:8

 

This verse also cautions Israelites NOT to follow the imaginations of our hearts.  That being a given, why should we have leaders who do not follow GOD’s Old Paths (Jeremiah 6:16 and Jeremiah 18:15)?

 

***

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

 

What does the GOD of Israel mean by “seek my face” and “in their affliction, they will seek me early?”

 

***

“Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:”   Deuteronomy 7:12

 

If the Most High GOD of Israel “loves Judgment” and Commands HIS People to use Righteous Judgments, then why do we not “Judge” evil and wicked doers/leaders and those who transgress GOD’s Law?

 

Please feel free to contribute responses to these questions, and if so, they will be published in the next JOURNAL.

HINTS FOR HARDY, HEALTHY HEBREWS:

 

Well, indeed winter is fast approaching if it’s not with us already.  And the month of November let’s us know that it’s right around the corner regardless of what warm temperatures might prevail.  And should colds, coughs, and viral infections be troubling you, try real hard to stay healthy all winter.  I found the following article in WOMAN’S WORLD (10/8/02), and I hope you find it helpful:

 

STAY HEALTHY ALL WINTER!

 

New research reveals 5 simple things

that can keep you from catching colds and flu this year…

 

Ever wonder why you seem to cough and sneeze all through cold and flu season, while your best friend or co-worker sails through these miserable months healthy, happy and sniffle-free?  The secret is a strong immune system – and it’s not something you have to be born with.

 

“Most of what separates those who get sick from those who don’t are surprisingly simple lifestyle habits,” says internist Mary L. Hardy, M.S., director of integrative medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.  “They boost your resistance to cold and flu germs and keep you out of their path in the first place.”

 

In fact, tricks like these can help you join the ranks of the super-immune right now, and make you 85% less likely to come down with something this winter:

 

1Try the cold-fighting cocktail

 

A daily glass of wine can make you 40% less likely to catch a cold

 

Spanish researchers have discovered that people who enjoy a glass or two of red wine every day are 40% less likely to come down with colds than teetotalers – even if they smoke, have allergies or are constantly exposed to sniffling, sneezing children!  Wine’s flavonoids – powerful plant compounds found in grape skins – appear to combat the rhinoviruses that most often trigger colds.

 

Not a wine fan?  Ginseng tea is another proven immunity-booster, and European research suggests that as little as one cup daily (or a little as 100 mg. Daily in supplement form) could cut your risk of colds or the flu as much as 40%.

 

2 – Have an immunity-boosting breakfast

Surprising ne British research indicates that people who eat breakfast every day get half as many colds as those who skip it.  Researchers still aren’t sure how a morning meal can keep you bug-free, but they do know which foods offer the best protection:  fruits rich in vitamin C.  European studies indicate that including a serving of C-rich citrus fruit, berries or grapes with your breakfast could slash your risk of viral infections an incredible 85%!

 

Research suggest vitamin C helps strengthn delicate nose and throat membranes, so cold and flu germs can’t penetrate.  And for even more protection, take 400 IU of vitamin E with your morning meal.  Doctors at Boston’s Tufts University say it can boost your immune system’s attack on invading flu viruses all day – cutting your risk 30%.

 

3 – Sleeping in on the weekend

 

Deep sleep helps your body recharge its infection-fighters

 

Numerous studies have shown that the stress of being chronically tired can double or even triple your risk of catching a cold, since deep sleep is your body’s prime time for rebuilding its stockpile of infection-fighting white blood cells.  “And that means that if you make no other changes, just regularly getting a good night’s sleep will give you a stronger, more resilient immune system,” says Dr. Hardy.

 

But don’t worry if you occasionally fall short.  According to researchers at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University, getting a full night’s sleep just twice – say, Saturday and Sunday – could strenthen your immune system so dramatically that it can slash your risk of illness as much as 80%!

 

4 – Wash your hands – and your toothbrush!

Previous research at San Diego’s Naval Health Research Center showed washing up five times a day could cut your risk of respiratory infections in half.  But now Canadian studies are showing doing it seven times a day can slash your risk by 75%!  Simply suds up for 15 seconds before and after every meal, and each time you use the rest room.

 

And for extra protection, rinse your toothbrush in running warm water after use.  Microbiologists say toothbrushes are a surprisingly common source of infection in households; besides being a trap for airborne cold and flu viruses, toothbrush bristles can become contaminated with germs from nearby brushes as well.

 

“Using toothbrush covers and replacing a toothbrush after someone gets sick can also help keep a sick family member from infecting everyone else,” says immunologist Deeba Masood, M.D., clinical research at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare in Illinois.

 

5 – Walk this way

Research at Appalachian State University in North Carolina shows that even small bouts of exercise can pump up your immune system for three hours or more, cutting your risk of colds or the flu in half.  But for extra protection, ask a friend or family member to work out with you – say, with a 15-minute walk during lunch, and another one after dinner.

 

Research at Pennsylvania’s Wilkes University shows the stress-busting benefits of socializing can cut your risk of viral infections up to threefold.  “We used to think you had to avoid people in order to avoid illnesses, but now we know the opposite is true,” says Dr. Hardy.  “People who regularly enjoy time with friends and loved ones have the healthiest minds, bodies and immune systems!”

 

Pros say just enjoying time with loved ones can cut your

risk of viral infections up to threefold!

 

***

 

Already sick?  Try these!

Prescription flue-fighters like Relenza (zanamivir) and Tamiflu (oseltamivir) can knock at least a full day off your suffering if you take them at the first sign of symptoms.  Or talk to your doctor about these natural cures, available at your local health-food store:

 

Kan jang for colds:  Studies show 1,200 mg. Daily of this Chinese herb can reduce sore throats, fatigue and muscle aches by almost 50%, plus completely shut down a cold in as little as three days!

 

Oscillococcinum for flu:  Research shows taking one tube of these homeopathic pellets three times daily ups the odds of a speedy 48-hour recovery by 63%.  “The trick is to let the pellets slowly dissolve in a clean mouth,” says Dr. Hardy.  “So don’t eat anything 15 minutes before or after taking it.”

 

 

Stay Healthy All Winter!

By Brenda Kearns

Woman’s World 10/8/02

 

***

I caution everyone about using Chinese herbs, as some of them have been harmful rather than helpful.  Therefore, consult an herbalist and/or your medical doctor and especially when taking herbs in conjunction with prescription drugs.  In some cases this practice is a definite NO-NO!

 

May the Holy ONE of Israel be with us to keep us safe and informed in order that we make wise and healthy decisions.

THE  GREATEST  “SPOIL”  OF  ALL

 

Learn about the Reparations Mass Movement for Descendants of Slaves and how YOU can get involved:  Go to:  www.thelawkeepers.org and click on “Repnow.” 

 

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):

EDITORIAL  PERSPECTIVE:

 

 

RELY ON THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL

AND

SEEK AFTER HIM AND HIS TRUTH

 

“…because thou didst rely on the LORD,

he delivered them into thine hand.

II Chronicles 16:8

 

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble;

and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Nahum 1:7

 

“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

Isaiah 30:1

 

“But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob;

but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.”

Isaiah 43:22

 

“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me,

and I will hearken unto you.

 

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me

with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:12,13

 

                                                                                                                        November 3, 2002

 

I pray that everyone had a most delightful month of FEASTING and Fasting during this past month’s observances for the Seventh Month.  For those who kept the Seventh Month in September instead of October, please know that the weather (to date) in the Middle East is still on the warm side.  That is to say that I pray that those of you who thought that October was too late in the year to observe the Feasts of the Seventh Month will consider (NOT) adjusting the Hebrew Calendar in the future because you think that the year will begin too soon or too late for whatever reason.   One day for sure we will serve and worship the Holy ONE with “One Consent,” and of this there is no doubt.  I just hope it will be soon – BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL AND BLESSED BE HIS HOLY NAME!

 

*****

 

Think back to the time when you knew that something was wrong, that you just knew things were not right in the world, but you just didn’t know what it was or what all it entailed.  In my case, when I was ever so young, there were subtle instances that never ceased to worry me:  first and foremost, my dreams, the “shadow” that was cast on the courtyard where I lived, and the song – “Manana” (“tomorrow” in Spanish) a word that had no meaning to me for a long while.  I just couldn’t understand why these instances among others gave me such a weird and baffling feeling.  I couldn’t understand why Blacks were poor and Whites rich, and why if jc was White, then why couldn’t I be White.  I couldn’t understand the Bible, though I knew that the answers did lie therein.  I couldn’t understand why jc would not answer my prayers but caused me even more problems when I prayed to him.  All these things were a mystery to me when I wanted more than anything to know the True GOD – excluding jc.

 

But now it has all come together.  Now, I know.  Now, we know the whole TRUTH of the matter.  If you, too, had comparable experiences, then now, we know that Our MERCIFUL Most High GOD of Israel was working with us – opening our eyes and leading us to seek after HIM, the ONLY True and Living GOD!  HE waited and protected us until the appropriate time to give us the wisdom we would need to follow HIS Paths of Righteousness, so that we would be molded into a People who would Fear, Hope, Trust, and Believe in ONLY HIM in Righteousness.

 

Throughout the years, I’m sure the Holy ONE has guided you just as HE has guided me, and with these revelations:  knowledge of our heritage and above all, Our True GOD and Savior, and HE has caused us to realize that HE is there for us if we will only turn to HIM.  We know this, right?  Therefore, we must also know that Our LORD and Savior is a Most Jealous GOD and wants nothing more than for us to hope, trust, and believe in HIM and call on HIM with our whole heart when we need help.  That is, we must RELY on HIM (and only HIM) for it is HE that makes our way prosperous and keeps us healthy and safe from all harm. 

 

When you really consider that which is truth, belief, and fabrication, all the facts will point to the Creator, the GOD of Abraham, for it was ONLY HE who Adam, Noah, and Abraham knew to be “The” GOD, the ONLY Creator.  It was this same GOD that made HIMSELF known to Moses and the Children of Israel down in bondage in Egypt, and that saved them out of the hands of the Egyptians.  And again, it was this same GOD that made Jerusalem HIS Holy City and anointed David and his SEED to sit on the throne in this divine place wherein is GOD’s Holy Name.  It is this same Creator and GOD that made a Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and his Twelve Tribes to be their GOD forever.  And that being a fact etched in stone, it is incumbent upon us to RELY on this ONE True and Living GOD that made HIMSELF Our LORD and Savior.  This Creator named HIMSELF the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob after HIS Covenant People!  What a Wonderful Savior we have to love us so much!  HE proved HIMSELF and fulfilled all HIS Promises to HIS Chosen Ones. 

 

“We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

 

How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

 

“For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

 

“Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

 

“Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.”    Psalm 44:1 - 5

 

And for this reason, I am learning daily how to love HIM and rely on HIM (and not any man) for all my needs.  After all, HE is a Jealous GOD, and even HIS Holy Name is JEALOUS (Exodus 34:15)!  Therefore, HE must be served and worshipped and FEARED for HE is the GOD of the Universe, the Creator of all things, the ONLY Savior.  And in TRUTH, THERE IS NONE OTHER!

 

“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

 

“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.

 

And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.

 

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

 

“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

 

The Most High GOD of Israel gave the Twelve Tribes of Jacob the Land of Canaan and chose King David to rule over the Kingdom of Israel so long as HIS People would FEAR HIM and do all that HE required of them (Deuteronomy 10:12,13).  HE proved HIS People to see if they would follow HIS Ways or not.  They disappointed HIM terribly, and then HE moved to show them just how powerful and in control HE really was.  After HIS Chosen People, Israel, sinned against HIM and chose to believe in false gods, HE divided the Kingdom and sent it into chaos, tribulations, famine, wars and into the hands of the Gentiles.  When the Israelites continued to forsake HIM and HIS Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, HE turned their blessings into curses and cast HIS Chosen Ones into captivity in their enemies’ lands to serve them with great affliction and misery (Deuteronomy 28th Chapter). 

 

Every Promise that GOD, the Creator, had made, the blessings and the curses, had been kept.  None of HIS Words had fallen to the ground.   Who or what can manipulate and/or move the Most High GOD from one place to another or fabricate HIS history?   Who or what can simulate the movements of the Mighty and Dreadful GOD that rewards good to the Righteous and Evil to the Wicked?  Who or what can cause PEACE where there is EVIL?  Who or what can cause things to happen, as well as prevent things from taking place?  Who or what can establish Angels, Prophets, and men to speak for HIM and to fulfill HIS Will?  Who or what is there that CANNOT FAIL except this Most High GOD and Creator that has proven HIMSELF to be the ONE True and Living GOD?

 

How many so-called gods have such a track record as the GOD of Israel, the Creator of the Universe?  How many so-called images have a history of creating a world?  What “man” can SAVE as has the Most High GOD of Abraham and Moses?  What “man” has made promises for Salvation and Redemption and has kept them?  How many so-called gods or what “man” have made these achievements and can be compared to this GOD of Israel, the All-Mighty GOD that Created Heaven and Earth? 

 

“They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

 

Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?”   Isaiah 44:9,10

 

Were not these so-called gods of today imagined and then formed by man?  Do not images need to be carried from one place to another?   Was not the “man” jc killed by man?  Did not the “man” jc (as the story goes) leave a world full of iniquity and absolute turmoil?  Did he not leave GOD’s Chosen People in captivity throughout the world serving their enemies?  Did he not fail to complete his mission to bring “peace” upon this Earth?   Have not his words fallen to the ground?  Have not even those who believe in jc been sadly and hopelessly disappointed in his ability to render safety from harm and help from hunger and impoverishment?  

 

Does this “man” jc not have a bad track record?  And that being a given, does it not make sense to say that he and the Most High GOD are NOT “One?”  Does it not seem that there is no truth to this man-made theology called the “Trinity?”  Wouldn’t the GOD of the Universe, if HE had anything to do with this “man” jc, have made him emerge and appear more credible than the “New Testament” portrays.  And if jc were indeed GOD – one of the intricate components of the so-called “Trinity” - wouldn’t he at least echo GOD’s Ways and HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments?   And since he didn’t or couldn’t, then why rely on him when he did not even prove himself to be sent by the Most High GOD?  Who needs a man/god who has led people to believe in lies?  Where is the Kingdom that jc said would be established so long ago during the Roman Era: (“Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” – Matthew 3:2, and “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled” – Matthew 24:34,35)? 

 

There is no question that jc lied, and that he failed in his prophecies.  What does the All-Mighty GOD have to say about false prophets?

 

“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 18:22

 

If jc is a “Saviour,” then where are the saved in this world from the most horrible deaths and destruction ever recorded since his so-called “Coming?”  Who needs this man jc who cannot stand by his words?  And who needs a “man” who turns Nations and Peoples from the Ways of GOD and HIS Righteous Book of the Law that HE established so many, many hundreds of years ago?  jc says that all it takes now is to believe and have faith in him and be saved.  Did not GOD COMMAND that we must Fear HIM and Keep HIS Law or be cursed?  According to the “NT” jc told the world to believe in and worship him rather than to believe, hope, and trust in the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Law?  Indeed he did!  jc also rejected GOD’s Laws and Judgments (John 8:3 – 7). And there is no question that jc took all the fame and Glory from the Most High GOD, the Creator and exalted himself and his ways. 

 

“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

 

And if you know anything at all about what “Thus Saith the LORD,” then you know that Hananiah the Prophet also defied GOD’s Word to save the Judahites out of Babylonian captivity, just as jc did in his attempts to save the “LOST SHEEP” of the House of Israel (Matthew 10:5,6) AFTER the Most High GOD had cursed the Judahites into captivity. It’s interesting to note that the GOD of Israel condemned HIS Prophet Hananiah to death for this grave blunder! 

 

“For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

 

“Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.

 

“Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD.

 

“So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.”   Jeremiah 28:15 – 17

 

I don’t have to tell you that the Judahites stayed seventy years in Babylon (Jeremiah 25:11,12; II Chronicles 36:20-23) just as GOD had decreed and not two years as Hananiah had prophesied (Jeremiah 28:1 – 4; Jeremiah 29:10). 

 

Take caution:  if X-tianity is the religion that you will live and die for, then at least know its foundation and whether it is of GOD or a fabrication of man specifically to reject GOD’s Ways and HIS Paths.  Also know and realize that because of Israel’s rejection of the Holy ONE and HIS Law, that HE proclaimed that HE would “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).  Just in case you are asking, “Well, why would the Most High GOD tell HIS People to serve false gods?”  Realize that the Holy ONE gave them exactly what they wanted.  And now that they have the false gods of their choice, they should understand that these deities (including jc) are of no merit.

 

“…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

 

GOD DID NOT LIE!  Numbered among these false “gods” mentioned above is the “man,” jc, the false god of the “New Testament” – the one that is supposed to make up the “Trinity” (a product of the Ecumenical Council organized by Constantine – See “The Nicene Creed.”

 

GOD’s Chosen, the Children of Israel are today in the lands of their captors because of their/our disobedience and great sins against Our Holy ONE of Israel.  But know of a certainty that the world will know and learn of another Exodus – a “Second Time” - one even greater than the one out of Egypt (Isaiah 11:11;Jeremiah 16:14,15; Ezekiel 34:11 – 31) for many will and have already returned to the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Book of the Law.  AGAIN, GOD, THE CREATOR, GOD ALL-MIGHTY, i.e., the GOD OF ISRAEL DOES NOT LIE!  HE will recover HIS People, the “Dry Bones will LIVE, and these Chosen Ones will serve and worship the GOD of Abraham in Truth and in Righteousness according to HIS Ways just as HE planned it in the beginning (Jeremiah 31:31 – 34).

 

WE AND THE WORLD NEED A GOD THAT CANNOT FAIL!

WE NEED THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD, THE CREATOR,

THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES TO TAKE BACK HIS EARTH!

 

We, Israelites, and the Strangers who choose the GOD of Israel (Isaiah 56th Chapter), need a Spirituality and Way of Life in which we can believe and hope.  If jc cannot produce a means of TRUTH and a Way of Holiness, righteousness, and Peace on this Earth, then we do not need this “man” who so conveniently forsook the world and left it in total chaos and confusion without a reliable means to improve matters among the evil and wicked Rulers that prevail and thrive.  What he did leave though were umpteen religious ways that determine how he (jc) should be worshipped:  Protestant, Episcopalian, Baptist, Methodist, etc., etc., and all having its own concept of worshipping this “man” the world calls jc, “The Savior of the World.”  If all this is not confusion, then what is?   The All-Mighty Creator established but ONE Law, and the World is destined to return to it and serve this LORD and SAVIOR with “One Consent.”

 

“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:”   Jeremiah 32:39

 

“For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.”    Zephaniah 3:9

 

It’s time we all come to realize the Truth and RELY on the Creator, the same GOD that X-tianity put on the back burner - the GOD that saved HIS Chosen People out of the land of Egypt - the GOD that creates darkness and evil and makes peace (Isaiah 45:7). This is Our GOD.  This is the GOD that established the ONLY Righteous Path that exists and wrote this HIS Book of the Law for Israel and the World to follow.  This is the True GOD, and there is none other! 

 

HE is the GOD that saved Israel out of ALL their tribulations.  HE is the GOD that we must all turn to and RELY on.  If HIS Prophets say that HE is our Salvation, then this is what we must believe and accept.  And we must SANCTIFY HIM and HIS Holy Name in the process!

 

“And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee:  though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

 

“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.”  

Isaiah 12:1,2

 

“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

 

“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

 

“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”   Jeremiah 29:12

 

It is time to ask, “Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt” and pour out our hearts to HIM with fasting and supplication, so that HE will hear us when we cry and then rely on HIM to save us out of the hands of those who hold us captive and who cause our continuous misery and suffering.  It is time to return to the True Creator, the ONLY Savior, the Holy ONE of Israel.

 

“If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.

 

“And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.

 

“Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.”  Jeremiah 4:1,2,4

 

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

 

“Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.”   Hosea 6:1

 

Our GOD of Israel is Fair and Just, and above all HE is Merciful to all Peoples who RELY on HIM and Fear HIM to keep HIS Ways.  Thus, we must be strong and of good courage and about fulfilling prophecy.

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)

 

 

“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

 

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

 

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!  

 

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 32:46

 

“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

 

The Holy ONE of Israel wants HIS People to SERVE, TRUST, BELIEVE, HOPE, AND WORSHIP ONLY HIM!

 

“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!!!

 

“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 brougt 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

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

AND THAT THERE IS NONE LIKE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

Poetry and Prose Corner With A Message:

 

HOW MUCH LONGER, O LORD, MY GOD?

 

How much longer before we will behold your Prophets?

How much longer before your Righteous Prophet Elijah will return?

 

Is he not to “turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers?”  Is he not supposed to come “before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD?”  Is not this that time, Heavenly Father?  Then, how much longer, LORD, must we wait for your Righteous Prophet Elijah and your Pastors who will teach us assured Ways to keeping your Law and to serving and worshipping you in Righteousness?

 

“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

 

“And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Jeremiah 3:14,15

 

“And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

 

“And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:3,4

 

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

 

How much longer before we are established in the Wilderness, as were our forefathers after you took them out of Egyptian bondage?

How much longer before the rebels are removed from among us -  your People?

 

How much longer before you will reveal yourself to us as you did to the Israelites down in Egypt?  How much longer, O LORD, My GOD, Heavenly Father before the Dry Bones will obediently become the Righteous Remnant of Israel?

 

“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

 

“And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

 

“And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

 

“Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.”    Ezekiel 37:21 – 23

 

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

 

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”    Joel 2:27,28

 

How much longer before ALL THE WORLD will recognize YOU as the ONE and ONLY genuine GOD of the Universe – The GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?

How much longer before the Nations will pray to YOU, Most High GOD of Hosts?

 

How much longer before every knee will bow to you, Heavenly Father of Abraham, Moses, and King David?  How much longer, LORD before the Nations will send representatives to your Holy City Jerusalem for your Glory and Praise?  How much longer before YOUR PEACE will be established on this Earth, My LORD and Savior?  How much longer before your Righteous Judgments are known and practiced throughout this Earth, LORD GOD of Abraham?

 

“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.    Isaiah 2:11

 

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

 

“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.”   Zechariah 14:9

“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.”   Isaiah 61:8

 

How much longer before the “Day of the LORD?

How much longer before you will destroy the evils that plague your planet, All-Mighty Creator?

 

How much longer before you will cause all Nations/Peoples to know you?  How much longer will it be before ALL THE WORLD WILL SANCTIFY YOU AND YOUR HOLY NAME?  How much longer before you will destroy idols and idolaters and worshippers of false gods?   How much longer before you will punish the Rulers of this wicked world for all their deceptions and frauds to change your Ordinances?  How much longer before the Gentiles will know YOU to be the Most High GOD of Abraham and Moses?  How much longer, LORD, before you will destroy the heathen who will not recognize your People, the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and your Righteous Paths – YOUR Laws, Statutes, and Judgments?

 

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

 

“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

 

“Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.”   Isaiah 13:6,9,13

 

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

Isaiah 24:21

 

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

 

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”  Joel 2:31,32

 

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

 

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.    Joel 3:15,16

 

“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”  Zephaniah 3:17

 

“And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

 

“Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

 

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

 

“And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.    Ezekiel 37:25 – 28

 

“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.”  

Zechariah 13:9

 

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

 

How much longer, O LORD MY GOD before we will worship you in your Holy Temple?  How much longer before men, women, and children will sing your Praises and Exalt your Holy Name?

 

How much longer before we will be glad and sing with joy for your Mercy, your Righteous Paths, and for your Peace on this Earth?  How much longer before there will be an end to suffering, mourning, and endless tears?  How much longer, O LORD before you will reward those who hope in your Mercy and seek to follow you according to your WORD?   How much longer must we wait before we can worship you in Jerusalem in your Holy Temple just as our fathers did so many hundreds of years ago?  How much longer, O LORD?  GOD of Abraham, have mercy, and for your Holy Name’s Sake don’t prolong the days.  Let us and let the world PRAISE and GLORY YOU, Heavenly Father of Abraham!

 

The Rulers of this world do not Exalt you, and they deceive many in order to hide YOUR TRUTH.  Your enemies hold your people captive and deny them true freedom to worship you in your Holy Land.  How long, LORD will you allow the Gentiles to govern and make decisions for your People – Your Chosen?  How long will you allow these Nations to cause the suffering of the fatherless and the widow – people that you wholeheartedly support and represent?   How long, LORD, will the poor be subject to sorrows, endless crying, unhappiness, and savage injustices?  How long, My LORD and Savior?  How long before the Host of the High ones will be brought down for their sins against YOU?

 

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

 

“For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.”   Zephaniah 3:8,9

 

“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.

 

“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 20:41 - 44

 

GOD of Abraham, have mercy and for your Holy Name’s Sake don’t prolong the days.  Let us and let the world PRAISE and GLORY YOU,

Heavenly Father of Abraham, NOW AND FOR EVERMORE!

 

YOU have made us know you.  Now, let us serve you and worship you according to your Righteous Ways!

 

Please remember your Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and your promises to recover a Remnant. 

I need you, Heavenly Father of Israel;

we need you!

 

Return Israel, O LORD GOD of Abraham to our heritage for

your Holy Name’s Sake!

“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:14,17

 

 

Let us mold our hearts and future NOW and succeed where our forefathers failed.  Let us be obedient to Our Holy ONE of Israel and live and do HIS Book of the Law AS IT IS WRITTEN IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Let us turn to Our GOD of Israel with our whole heart and soul and cause HIM to see that this time, we will keep our promise to make HIM Our ONE and ONLY GOD in Truth and serve HIM according to HIS Ways and Paths of Righteousness that HE decreed to HIS Prophet Moses!

 

“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:”

Deuteronomy 30:1 - 4

“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.

“I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

“And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.

“Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.”

Ezekiel 36:24 - 31

 

“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

 

*****

 

“Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not:  behold, your God will come with vengeance even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

 

“And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion

with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: 

they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”

Isaiah 35:4,10

 

“For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: 

I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

 

“Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee:  therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.

 

“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;”

Isaiah 43:3 – 6

Old Testament Word Search

by

Tziona Yisrael

 

***

 

Some words are truly challenging to find, so be very careful.  Words are written vertically, horizontally, and diagonally.

 

Only a good “eye” will enable you to find all the words!

For neatness and legibility, use a single line to cross out each word found

rather than circling it. 

 

Parents, you might want to copy just the “Word Search” and take turns with your children to complete this puzzle.  And to make the fun 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.

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.

NOW, see who can rack up the most points.

 

ENJOY!

 

***

“When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an ax against them:  for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man’s life) to employ them in the siege:

 

“Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued.”

Deuteronomy 20:19,20

THE BENEFITS OF FASTING AND RELYING ON

THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL FOR

HIS MERCY AND HIS HELP

 

 It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.  Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazon-tamar, which is En-gedi. 

 

 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.  And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. 

 

And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,  And said,

 

O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?  Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?  And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying, If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.  And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;  Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.  O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.  And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.  

 

Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;  And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.  To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.  Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.  And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.  And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high. 

 

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.  And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.  For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

 

 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.  And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

 

 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day. Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies.  And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD.  And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel.

 

 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.  And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.  And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the LORD.  Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers.

 

 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.

 

 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 Ezion-gaber.  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.
