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

"God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; Moab is my washpot: over Edom will I cast out my shoe:Philista, triumph thou because of me.

"Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies? 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 60:5-12

Shalom Le-kol Yisrael, We can learn so much from reading about King David, how even in the lowest point of his kingship, he understood his strength and hope was only in the Holy One of Yisrael. Like David, we, the children of Yisrael are also in a time of trouble, Jacobs trouble. Jer. 30, and we too must be ever mindful that our trust and hope is only in the Holy One of Yisrael. This is especially so as we enter into the High Holy Days.

Our history tells us that during the time we were servants and in bondage in Egypt, we cried to the Holy One for him to bring deliverance to us.

"And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage."

"And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covanant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob." And God looked upon the children of Yisrael, and God had respect unto them." Exodus 2:23=25

Notice the verse tells us "God had respect unto them." The hebrew word is actually "yaw-dah'" and it meaning includes " to know, to perceive and see, find out and discern" Other meanings are understand, acknowledge, consider. We know this to be true because the Creator told Moses that "I have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters, for I KNOW their sorrows."

The Creator delivered our ancestors from bondage to the Egyptians with great power and wonders.. Our ancestors also knew it was the God of Abaham Isaac and Jacob that delivered them and not any other false deity or god. In fact he told Moses to tell them that was HIS MEMORIAL UNTO ALL GENERATIONS. Exodus 3:15

Today, enlighten Israelites must only call upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, as our forefathers did, Moses, David, Samuel, Elijah, Ruth, if we expect him to hear us. We cannot exalt any man, woman, stone, rock or anything as we know HE is our only saviour.

I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Psa 18:3

And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.Psa 50:15

And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Isa 12:4

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

What a more appropriate time to call upon our God during the highest of Holy Days, remembering his great hand showed on our behalf. Let this new year begin with us all calling upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob non-stop and even more, as we reflect on our lives this passover season. My prayer is the Holy One will hear our cries and manifest the circumstances for our return home.
Shalom

SOME QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

 

“And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.”   Deuteronomy 10:5

 

“…Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,

 

“Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for witness against thee.”   Deuteronomy 31:25

 

“And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD:  neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.”   Jeremiah 3:16

 

Considering the above Scripture, what do you think will hold GOD’s Book of the Law?

 

***

 

Of all the Holy Feast Days, why did the Holy ONE of Israel Command that “Three times in a year (during Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles) shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose” (Deuteronomy 16:16)?  

 

Please feel free to respond to these questions, and if so, they will be published in the next Newsletter.

HINTS FOR HARDY, HEALTHY HEBREWS:

 

I received a couple of E-mails on the following information.  It might be a good idea to give this article your undivided attention.  One just never knows the makeup of the products manufactured under Gentile regulations.  But you can be sure that they are made based on need and greed and at consumer expense:

 

***

 

NEWS ABOUT TAMPONS AND SANITARY NAPKINS THAT COULD PROVE TO BE VERY DANGEROUS:

 

If you use pads, but especially if you use tampons, read this and pass on to your friends (for the men receiving this email, please forward it to your friends, significant others, sisters, mothers, daughters, etc.)

 

Check the labels of the sanitary pads or tampons that you are going to buy the next time, and see whether you spot any of the familiar signs stated in this email. No wonder so many women in the world suffer from cervical cancer and womb tumors.

 

Have you heard that tampon makers use asbestos in tampons? Why would they do this? Because asbestos makes you bleed more . . . . . if you bleed more, you're going to need to use  more.  Why isn't this against the law since asbestos is so dangerous? Because the powers that be, in all their wisdom Not), did not consider tampons as being ingested, and therefore wasn't illegal or considered dangerous.

 

This month's(?) Essence magazine has a small article about this and they mention two manufacturers of a cotton tampon alternative. The companies are Organic Essentials @ (800)765-6491 and Terra Femme @(800)755-0212.

 

A woman getting her Ph.D. at University of Colorado @ Boulder sent the following: "I am  writing this because women are not being informed about the dangers of something most of us use-tampons. I am taking a class this month and have been learning a lot about biology and woman, including much about feminine hygiene. Recently we have learned that tampons are actually dangerous (for other reasons than TSS). I'll tell you this, after learning about this in our class, most of the females wound up feeling angry and upset with the tampon industry, and I for one, am going to do something about it. To start, I want to inform everyone I can, and email is the fastest way  that I know how.

 

Here is the scoop: Tampons  contain two things that are potentially harmful: Rayon (for absorbency), and dioxin (a chemical used in bleaching the products). The tampon industry is convinced that we, as women, need bleached white products-in order to view the product as pure and  clean.

 

The problem here is that the dioxin produced in this  bleaching process can lead to very harmful problems for a woman.  Dioxin is potentially carcinogenic (cancer-associated) and is toxic to the immune and reproductive systems. It has also been linked to endometriosis and  lower sperm counts for men and for both, it breaks down the immune system.

 

Last September the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that there really is no set "acceptable" level of exposure to dioxin given that it is cumulative and slow to disintegrate.  The real danger comes from repeated contact (Karen Houppert "Pulling the Plug on the Tampon Industry"). I'd say using about 4-5 tampons a day, five days a month, for 38 menstruating years is "repeated contact," wouldn't you?

 

Rayon contributes to the danger of tampons and dioxin because it is a highly absorbent substance. Therefore, when fibers from the tampons are left behind in the vagina (as it usually occurs), it creates a breeding ground for the dioxin. It  also stays in a lot longer than it would with just cotton tampons. This is also the reason why TSS (toxic shock syndrome) occurs.

 

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES? Using feminine hygiene products that aren't bleached and that are all cotton. Other feminine hygiene products (Pads/napkins) contain dioxin as well, but they are not nearly as dangerous since they are not in direct contact with the vagina. The pads/napkins need to stop being bleached, but obviously tampons are the most dangerous.

 

So, what can you do if you can't give up using tampons?  Use tampons, that are made from 100% cotton, and that are UNBLEACHED. Unfortunately, there  are very, very few companies that make these safe tampons. They are usually  only found in health food stores.

 

Countries all over the world (Sweden, Germany, British Columbia, etc.) have demanded a switch to this safer tampon, while the US has decided to keep us in the dark  about it. In 1989, activists in England mounted a campaign against chlorine bleaching.. Six weeks and  50,000 letters later, the makers of sanitary products switched to  oxygen bleaching (one of the green methods available). (MS magazine -May/June 1995).

 

What to do now : Tell people. Everyone. Inform them. We are being manipulated by this industry and the government, let's do something about it! Please write to the companies: Tampax (Tambrands), Playtex, O.B., Kotex.  Call the 800 numbers listed on the boxes. Let them know that we demand a safe product- ALL COTTON UNBLEACHED TAMPONS.

THE  GREATEST  “SPOIL”  OF  ALL

 

Learn about the Reparations Mass Movement and how YOU can get involved:  Go to  www.thelawkeepers.org and click on “Newsletter.” 

 

The Israelites received Reparations for their free labor when they left out of Egypt (Exodus 12:35,36, Psalm 105:37).   And it is prophesied that we will again receive compensation for our free labor and bondage in this modern-day Egypt:

 

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

 

*******

 

EDITORIAL PERSPECTIVE:

 

PASSOVER  PORTRAYS  LIFE,  DENOTES  DELIVERANCE,  AND

EXHIBITS  SANCTIFICATION  OF THE  GOD OF ISRAEL!

 

I’m sure most of us are already thinking and preparing for Passover that is, by the way, only a few weeks away.  This observance always seems to bear more heavily on my mind than all the other Feast Days.  White Jews, and some Black Hebrews claim that “The Day of Atonement” is the highest Holy Day.  I, personally, beg to differ with them.  I believe Passover to be the highest Holy Day, all because the Holy ONE delivered the Nation of Israel out of Egypt and made a much feared Name for HIMSELF in the process.  Not only that, but Passover is without a doubt the most mentioned Feast Day ever in Scripture because of GOD’s Great Hand in this matter+.  And this annual observance is one of the three, whereby, all Israelite males must appear before the LORD in the place HE shall choose (Jerusalem - Deuteronomy 16:16).  The others are “Feast of Weeks” and “The Feast of Tabernacles” (Dwelling in Booths). 

 

Don’t get me wrong, I realize that ALL GOD’s Holy Days are of great significance, but just imagine being in captivity in your enemy’s land serving him, cleaning his filth, and slaving under hard bondage, oppression, and despair.  All of a sudden the True and Living GOD proclaims that HE is your GOD and will deliver you out of this servitude.  And then, HE is true to HIS Words!  You are set free and at liberty to go your way.  Can’t you just imagine how overjoyed and grateful you would be to the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for delivering you (the Nation of Israel) out of 430 years of affliction, pain, and suffering.   Wouldn’t this Deliverance be one that you’d treasure and never forget?  If there is no “Deliverance” for us out of the hands of our captors and a return to our own land, then the other Holy Days lack the spirit of the intended Feast Days.   “How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?”  (Psalm 137:4)

 

That’s not all.  Get this:  after this Great Deliverance the surrounding Nations feared to do you any harm because they had heard of how your Great and Dreadful GOD sent devastating plagues against the Egyptians, Saved you out of Egypt, dried up the Red Sea for your passage, and destroyed your captors.  Now, I ask you, would that make Passover a SUPERB occasion to celebrate or what, and all because your GOD has demonstrated and proven HIS POWERFUL LOVE FOR YOU!?!!

 

I’m sure some of the descendants of the Israelites out of Egypt were too pleased to observe all of GOD’s Feast Days.  But those few (the families of Joshua and Caleb) who remembered their enslavement and that sensational Passover night and who were fortunate enough to enter the Land of Canaan would certainly be ecstatic about observing Passover in their own homeland after all they had endured.  And the reason is that this was the night that the Most High GOD of Israel passed over the firstborn Israelites but destroyed the firstborn of the Egyptians, as well as the firstborn of their beasts.  

 

Passover is an observance of “Life” for the Nation of Israel because the Holy ONE of Israel permitted the firstborn Israelites to live and not die.  Yes, indeed, Passover to me is the highest of all Holy Days, and BLESSED BE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB for all HIS Mercy HE bestowed upon HIS Chosen People Israel in delivering them out of Egypt.  And BLESSED BE HIS HOLY NAME for all the Mercy HE bestows upon those of us who seek to do HIS Will during these latter days.

 

Passover (and the week of unleavened bread) is an observance to be celebrated for three wonderful reasons:  GOD spared Israel’s Firstborn, GOD’s Deliverance out of Egyptian bondage, and the Nation of Israel’s first hand account of GOD’s True Love for them in being their GOD and giving them the Land of Canaan for an everlasting possession.

 

Those of us living today will have another opportunity to experience GOD’s Greatness, Power, Might, and HIS Love for HIS People for HE will again cause the captivity of HIS People to return and will cause us to enjoy our heritage one more time, but it is not unconditional.  We must first return to Our GOD of Israel and be obedient to HIS Law.

 

“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…”   Jeremiah 15:19

 

“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

 

“For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.”   Jeremiah 30:3

 

“…an highway shall be there…

 

“…the redeemed shall walk there:

 

“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 35:8 - 10

 

“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:  they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”   Isaiah 51:10

 

“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

 

“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.”     

Isaiah 10:20,21

 

“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 65:19

 

“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.

 

“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”   Isaiah 61:10

 

Yes, indeed, the Holy ONE of Israel is preparing to bring new meaning to Passover, i.e., the Deliverance out of Egypt will become the Deliverance from all places where Our GOD has scattered us, as well as a full end of all Nations that held us captive.

 

“Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel:  for lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

 

“For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee:  though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee:  but I will not leave thee altogether unpunished.”   Jeremiah 30:10,11

 

It will be all about Righteousness, Deliverance, Redemption, Salvation, Rejoicing, (a true and heartfelt) Thanksgiving, and GOD’s assured Peace all in one.   I don’t know if there exists “one word” to define such inconceivable bliss, but you can believe that I am praying to experience it.  The Holy ONE of Israel said that the Biblical Israelites were worse than their fathers.  We can change all that by turning to the Most High GOD of Israel in Truth with our whole heart and soul and by keeping HIS Law.  Let us all prove Our GOD of Israel to see if HE will once again follow through with HIS Promises to us.

 

“…prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”   Malachi 3:10

 

To everyone, Hebrew Israelites and Gentiles alike who seek GOD’s Paths to live and do HIS Law in Righteousness, I wish for you only the best for this upcoming Passover season.  May the Holy ONE of Israel grant you good health and peace of mind this New Year and lead and guide all of us who believe in HIM and hope in HIS Mercy.  And may Our GOD hasten our Deliverance and our return to our heritage.

Poetry With A Message:

 

MORE  THAN  ONE

 

Some men take more than one wife because of the opportunity;

But with more than one wife comes a great responsibility.

Before you marry, talk to each other and have a clear understanding;

Because having more than one wife is physically and financially demanding.

The husband is responsible for all needs to sustain life;

Letting none of these diminish from his first wife.

Take as many as you want, we are all grown.

I'm not for sharing, I want a husband of my own.

Yah, our Father, created Adam then Eve,

to be as one and to go and conceive.

From out of man, the woman came,

to be as one in Yah's holy name.

How can one man, today, support more than one wife?

Here in the U.S., where we can barely sustain life.

Remember in the Bible, those men had an abundance of wealth;

And they were prosperous in substance, wherever they dwelt.

Having more than one wife is for the commandment keeper.

Every man is not capable, especially the booty seeker.

Are we to learn anything from Sarah and Abraham's mistake?

Whereas they didn't dwell in harmony, even for peace's sake!

For Sarah gave Hagar unto Abraham to wife;

But when it didn't work out, Hagar was the ultimate sacrifice.

Sarah told Abraham to send Hagar and Ishmael away.

They both left together that very same day.

Abraham gave them a bottle of water and some bread;

Leaving her to raise their son, without Abraham, their head.

Where was Abraham's responsibilities and his obligations?

He was the father of that child no matter what the situation.

What about Jacob and all of his wives?

No need to explain the problems that were in their lives.

Jacob served Laban for seven long years,

hoping to marry Rachel, whom he loved so dear.

Rachel, whom he loved, was the apple of his eyes,

but he ended up marrying Leah, whom was despised.

Leah accused Rachel of taking her man;

But Leah knew Jacob loved Rachel, what didn't she understand.

It was all her fault, tricking Jacob to marry her.

He didn't love her at all, this didn't just occur.

Knowing that her husband didn't love her at all;

She gave Rachel some mandrakes to lie with Jacob, what gall!!

Let's look at David, coveting another man's wife.

He desired her so much, he up and took a man's life.

Yah gave him his master's wives, but that still wasn't enough.

When will man ever learn when enough is enough?

Solomon, David's son, loved many foreign and strange wives.

Sacrificing unto their deities daily in each of their lives.

They turned Solomon's heart from serving Yah;

When he sacrificed unto their deities, both near and far.

Man, if he chooses, may have more than one wife;

But every woman knowing this, may not make that sacrifice.

Sometimes a man's wants, may overcome his needs;

So think about your circumstances and the mouths you have to feed.

 

Halleluyah!!!!

THE  LORD  GOD  OF  ISRAEL  AND 

SERVING  AND  WORSHIPPING  ONLY  HIM,
