Truth or Consequences
The year 2019 is about to begin. Our book The 2300 Days of Hell warns you that in the middle of the 70th week Israel, all 12 tribes would be cut off and be as if they never were. That 70th week is the 70th Jubilee since Moses was commanded by Yehovah to go and get the People of Israel from Egypt at the Great Exodus. We updated you about this very thing with an extra News Letter that was only prepared after the events of this past month. World events continue to march toward those prophecies we have been sharing with you from the Bible.
These 70 Jubilee cycles began with Moses and then the Exodus. It was spectacular and Yehovah’s name was known around the world because of this event that took place at Passover. These 70 Weeks, these 70 Jubilee cycle will conclude with an even greater Exodus and King David will stand at this time. Read it all in Isaiah 11.
Isaiah 11:10 In that day the root of Jesse, who shall stand as a signal for the peoples—of him shall the nations inquire, and his resting place shall be glorious.
In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant that remains of his people, from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coastlands of the sea. He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The jealousy of Ephraim shall depart,
and those who harass Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not harass Ephraim. But they shall swoop down on the shoulder of the Philistines in the west, and together they shall plunder the people of the east. They shall put out their hand against Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites shall obey them. And the Lord will utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt, and will wave his hand over the River with his scorching breath, and strike it into seven channels, and he will lead people across in sandals. And there will be a highway from Assyria for the remnant that remains of his people,
as there was for Israel when they came up from the land of Egypt.
We have just under 1 1/2 years until we know if Yehovah has revealed these truths or if they came of my own volition. If they prove to be true and you have not read the book, what are you going to do? Do you know the truth about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years? Do you even care? Where are you to flee to and when are you supposed to go?
Then a couple of weeks ago I was sent an email about a dream a certain lady had saying that we would be in famine in 6 months time. She said it was from God. Everyone started to get very excited and there were sharing that message. No one can verify what she said. No one can open their bible to double check if what she said is, in fact, true because it was just her dream. And yet they were running with it and warning others.
We have been telling you about 2020 now since 2005. We have shown you from your own bible where to look so that you yourself can double check those things we are saying. We have provided the charts, we have done al the math and shown it to you so that you can also double check our math. We have laid the whole thing out on the line for you to check and to prove yourself. We are warning you of war and famine and rape and death and destruction and few there who share it. But if someone has a dream then it is shared without question. It just blows my mind.
Does anyone really want the facts and the truth or are they all hiding from the chemtrails and chasing the Illuminati?
You can get The 2300 Days of Hell at Xlibris or Amazon or Barnes and Noble. And if you have read the book then please do write a comment and let others know what you thought of it at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It should be a number one seller, but few there are who are talking about it and telling others why they should read it. No, it is not a simple read. It is deep and detailed.
Many of those who have read it are stunned at the truths now before them.
Unable to explain away these simple yet powerful truths. They are left with the knowledge that the Torah is real and that they must act. They can now plainly see that Yehovah has been moving and acting all this time, but they just did not understand before reading our books.
Knowing where we are in these last days is shocking to know we are so close to the end. To then be able to see and recognize the events on the nightly news is also very sobering and causes us to wonder why everyone has not yet gotten their own copy to read. For example, you hear about Extreme weather catastrophes all the time all around the world and have been told that this is Climate Change or Global Warming. You see again on the nightly news the UN making Global Governance and Sustainability soft laws and then hard laws as they just did again this past month with the new rules for the Paris Accord that they just past in Poland in December 2018. They will be hard laws come 2020.
Do you have any clue where these things are told to you in your own Bible and how they are the precursors to the end of this 6th Millennial day of man? Do you know where we are in that 6th Millennial Day? Do you care? Daniel 9:24-27 is the answer.
Can you explain the meaning of this chart and just how close we are in 2019 to the start of the 7th Millennium in 2045?
Those who have read The 2300 Day of Hell can explain this chart now. They get it.
When some people hear this message they are moved to action and some have written bills to make the Lev 23 Holy Days laws of their own nation.
You don’t have to be famous or a great person. You just have to be moved enough to act and do something for the Kingdom and these people did.
We have traveled around the world to the Philippines to explain about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and the end time role they have in these last days.
We have gone to Switzerland to teach these truths.
Our message was extremely well received in the Philippines where even the leaders of that nation want to know more about this understanding.
We were even featured on The 700 Club Asia not once but twice in the Philippines and our message was loved.
In Africa, our message was heard by the Vice President and the President of Burundi, who both are also reading our books.
We explain to the leadership of these nations what is about to happen and why and how it is going to affect their own nation, and where their nation is spoken of in the bible. Yes these nations are mentioned in Isaiah which I just quoted to you above, but did any of you notice that?
These leaders know about Yehovah and they fear and study His words. So our teachings are new to them but they are not foreign. They seek to learn more.
We have worked hard to inform those who can reach still more and help them to see the imminent danger that is coming to those who do not repent and begin to obey. We fully expect those who know these truths to also be reaching out to their own leadership with this understanding. We all have a job to do. Ezekiel 33 warns us not to be found with blood on our hands because of our silence. It is also warning you.
Some of these leaders then come on Tour with us to learn more about those things we are teaching.
The profits we make from the sales of our books and DVDs are then used to give books away and to support this work in Burundi Africa where Bishop Telesphore gives more copies away to those who are eager to learn.
Brother Aike in the Philippines also takes those books and gives them to leaders and teachers who will read and teach these things to their groups.
This is only possible when you purchase our books or DVDs or when you make donations on a regular monthly basis.
New groups are interested in learning these truths and they, in turn, teach it to their own groups and then to others as well. Again this is only possible when we have the finances to be able to share these things. To do so cost money for publishing and shipping and to travel and for lodging and food. We need your support to make all of this happen. We are repeatedly being asked in Kenya to come and teach.
Yes, I hear many asking for your support on the radio and TV and for the various charities out there. I firmly believe that a change of the heart from not obeying Yehovah to a heart that now wants to keep the Sabbath and Holy Days and Sabbatical years is the best way to rid the world of Poverty and hunger and homelessness. By teaching them the truth they will be blessed by Yehovah and no longer need the charity of others. This does not mean we ignore those other needs, but it does mean we strive to correct the heart matter first. To change it towards Yehovah and obeying before anything else is done.
We are reaching the heads of the nations we are working in.
But more needs to be done. More needs to be prepared and explained in order for what is about to happen around the world to be understood as it was written in the bible millennium ago.
There is an end time work being done right now through sightedmoon.com. We show people where we are exactly in these last days which can only be done when you understand the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles.
It is time to get the books and add your picture to those who now understand the urgency of the times we are in. It is time for you to order your book now and know why these men are so keen on telling others about what Yehovah is doing now. It is also time for you to get extra copies to give to those you know need to learn these truths, that might not be able to fully explain.
Once we arrive at December 2020, sightedmoon.com will no longer publish or post teachings or be available to talk to. If those things we have been teaching do not come to pass at either Shavuot or Sukkot, 2020, then we will shut down the website. If you want any of the teachings then I suggest you begin to print them off now.
If, on the other hand, those things Yehovah has shown us do come to pass then sightedmoon.com may still be off the air due to the destruction that is to come. We will then try to keep the site going through those troublesome times ahead of us if we can. If you want any of the teachings then you will have to have them printed off and saved before 2020 comes. By the end of 2020, we will be either finished or underground hiding.
It is our position that the middle of this 70th Jubilee cycle is Shavuot, Pentecost 2020. We expect things to begin at this time. But there is this one prophecy that is also weighing on us.
Mat 24:40 “And pray that your flight does not take place in winter or on the Sabbath.
The word for flight is
G5437 phuge? foog-ay’
From G5343; a fleeing, that is, escape: – flight.
G5343 pheugo? fyoo’-go
Apparently a primary verb; to run away (literally or figuratively); by implication to shun; by analogy to vanish: – escape, flee (away).
The word for Winter is
G5494 cheimo?n khi-mone’
From a derivation of ???? cheo? (to pour; akin to the base of G5490 through the idea of a channel), meaning a storm (as pouring rain); by implication the rainy season, that is, winter: – tempest, foul weather, winter.
The Rainy Season begins in the 7th Month. There are only two seasons in the Bible, not four as we presume today. There was the rainy season, winter and the planting Season Summer. And as many of you understand there are 4 Holy Days are in the 7th Month. The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, The Day of Sukkot and The Eighth Day Feast.
Now read the meaning of the word for Sabbath.
G4521 sabbaton sab’-bat-on
Of Hebrew origin [H7676]; the Sabbath (that is, Shabbath), or day of weekly repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); by extension a se’nnight, that is, the interval between two Sabbaths; likewise the plural in all the above applications: – sabbath (day), week.
But strongs has made a plunder here. The word Sabbaton does not mean Sabbath. Yes they have said the word is Sabbaton and then sited H7676 which is about the Sabbath, the weekly Seventh Day Sabbath. The word Sabbaton is explained in strongs H7677.
????????? shabbâthôwn, shab-baw-thone’; from H7676; a sabbatism or special holiday:—rest, sabbath.
Now notice everywhere this word is used. It is not speaking about the weekly Sabbath but about the High Holy Days.
The KJV translates Strong’s H7677 in the following manner: rest (8x), sabbath (3x).
Exo 16:23 then he said to them, “This is what the LORD [fn] meant: Tomorrow is a sabbath H7677 observance, H7677 a holy sabbath to the LORD. Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over [fn] put aside to be kept until morning.”
Exo 31:15 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete H7677 rest, H7677 holy to the LORD; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death.
Exo 35:2 “For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete H7677rest H7677 to the LORD; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.
Lev 16:31 “It is to be a sabbath of solemn H7677 rest H7677 for you, that you may humble your souls; it is a permanent statute.
Lev 23:3 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete H7677 rest, H7677 a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a sabbath to the LORD in all your dwellings.
Lev 23:24 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a [fn] rest, H7677 a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.
Lev 23:32 “It is to be a sabbath of complete H7677 rest H7677 to you, and you shall humble your souls; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.”
Lev 23:39 ‘On exactly the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the crops of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the LORD for seven days, with a [fn] rest H7677 on the first day and a [fn] rest H7677 on the eighth day.
Lev 25:4 but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, H7677 a sabbath to the LORD; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard.
Lev 25:5 ‘Your harvest’s [fn] aftergrowth you shall not reap, and your grapes of untrimmed vines you shall not gather; the land shall have a sabbatical H7677 year.
Now, look at the word H7676 which is speaking about the weekly Sabbath and not the High Holy Days. You can look more at this link. I am only going to give you the verse up to the end of Lev 23.
Strong’s Number H7676 matches the Hebrew ??????? (shabbath), which occurs 109 times in 88 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the NASB
Exo 16:23 then he said to them, “This is what the LORD [fn]meant: Tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath H7676 to the LORD. Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over [fn]put aside to be kept until morning.”
Exo 16:25 Moses said, “Eat it today, for today is a sabbath H7676 to the LORD; today you will not find it in the field.
Exo 16:26 “Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the sabbath, H7676 there will be [fn]none.”
Exo 16:29 “See, [fn] the LORD has given you the sabbath; H7676therefore He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”
Exo 20:8 “Remember the sabbath H7676 day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:10 but the seventh day is a sabbath H7676 of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who [fn]stays with you.
Exo 20:11 “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath H7676 day and made it holy.
Exo 31:13 “But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; H7676 for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.
Exo 31:14 ‘Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, H7676 for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
Exo 31:15 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath H7676 of complete rest, holy to the LORD; whoever does any work on the sabbath H7676 day shall surely be put to death.
Exo 31:16 ‘So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, H7676 to [fn]celebrate the sabbath H7676 throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’
Exo 35:2 “For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath H7676 of complete rest to the LORD; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.
Exo 35:3 “You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the sabbath H7676 day.”
Lev 16:31 “It is to be a sabbath H7676 of solemn rest for you, that you may humble your souls; it is a permanent statute.
Lev 19:3 ‘Every one of you shall reverence his mother and his father, and you shall keep My sabbaths; H7676 I am the LORD your God.
Lev 19:30 ‘You shall keep My sabbaths H7676 and revere My sanctuary; I am the LORD.
Lev 23:3 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath H7676 of complete rest, a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a sabbath H7676 to the LORD in all your dwellings.
Lev 23:11 ‘He shall wave the sheaf before the LORD for you to be accepted; on the day after the sabbath H7676 the priest shall wave it.
Lev 23:15 ‘You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, H7676 from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete sabbaths. H7676
Lev 23:16 ‘You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh sabbath; H7676 then you shall present a new grain offering to the LORD.
Lev 23:32 “It is to be a sabbath H7676 of complete rest to you, and you shall humble your souls; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.” H7676
Although H7677 Sabbathon is sometimes interchanged with the H7676 Shabbat, H7677 Sabbathon is used to speak about the Holy Days of the 7th Month. Trumpets, Atonement and Sukkot. I have highlighted them above.
So although I believe Shavuot is the middle of this 70th and final Jubilee Cycle, in this 6th Millenial day of man, and the time that the destruction of Israel, all 12 tribes is to begin, we are also warned to pray that our flight is not on a Sabbathon, the Holy Days of Trumpets, Atonement, and Sukkot.
For this reason, I am saying that if nothing happens by the end of Sukkot, we will begin the process of pulling the plug on sightedmoon.com.
But what about you? Are you preparing now as to how you are to flee and where? Are you making preparations or will you be forced to flee on one of the Sabbath owns with little or no preparation? Will you be in a safe place or subject to those that are coming to do the destroying? As always you get to choose how you and your family will spend the 2300 Days of Hell to a certain degree.
If you say you are going to wait and see if those things we have been saying here are correct before you act, then you have made a choice.
I know this is extremely hard. I do know. Am I right or am I not right? Have you proven these things or just followed along for the ride?
You are witnessing the destruction of the homes across the USA right now through hurricanes and tornadoes and wildfires. Homes are being destroyed. Yehovah warns us that He is going to take us out of our homes in Ezekiel 20.
Ezek 20:33 “As I live, declares the Lord God, surely with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with wrath poured out I will be king over you. I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face. As I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, declares the Lord God. I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. I will purge out the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against me. I will bring them out of the land where they sojourn, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
Once again I must remind you of what that Rod is that we all will pass under. Assyria is that rod and today they are known as Germany.
Isaiah 10:5 Woe to, Assyria, the rod of my anger; the staff in their hands is my fury! Against a godless nation I send him, and against the people of my wrath I command him, to take spoil and seize plunder,
and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
The motto on our home page is
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. – Isaiah 62:1
:6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest, and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it a praise in the earth.
When I first began this work in 2005, I had no clue what to do or how to do it. But I read Isaiah 6 which asks who shall we send. I prayed about this and said I would do it so long as Yehovah was with me and I taught the truth. Then and only then would I stick my neck out and be His fool if need be. Only if Yehovah was with me was I going to put up with all those who want to condemn and attack from both the brethren and those we are trying to educate.
We have now come to that time when we will learn the truth as to whether this is from Yehovah of from me. Isaiah 6 goes on to read some more very scary things as to how long this work was to go on for.
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” And he said, “Go, and say to this people: “‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.” Then I said, “How long, O Lord?” And he said: “Until cities lie waste without inhabitant, and houses without people, and the land is a desolate waste, and the Lord removes people far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. And though a tenth remain in it, it will be burned again, like a terebinth or an oak, whose stump remains when it is felled.” The holy seed is its stump.
We pray that we have reached that 10 % and even that 10%, that stump that is left will be burned again and they will know what to do and when to do it. This second trial comes as we have explained many times when the remnant is brought back to the land by the demands of the two witnesses. Then once they are brought back at Passover then the woman flees into the wilderness of Moab where she is hidden for times time and half a time. But the Beast goes and makes war on those who keep the commandments but never fled with the woman. The reason they never fled with the woman is because they are on the wrong calendar. So which one are you to follow? The Crescent Moon or the Hebrew calculated Calendar. It will be decided once and for all at that time.
Will You Obey Yehovah or Do what the World Does?
You now have a few days before the world rings in the new year on December 31, this coming Monday night. Just like Chanukah and Christmas, New Years Celebrations are steeped in ancient mythology and rituals. We are duty bound to once again annually bring you our admonition and warn you about these things.
Deu 12:1 These are the statutes and judgments which you shall be careful to do in the land which Jehovah, the God of your fathers gives you to possess it, all the days that you live upon the earth. You shall completely destroy all the places in which the nations which you shall possess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree.
Under Every Green Tree sounds a lot like Christmas to me.
Deu 12:3 And you shall overthrow their altars and break their pillars, and burn their pillars with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their gods, and destroy their names out of that place. You shall not do so to Jehovah your God. But you shall seek to the place which Jehovah your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even to His dwelling place you shall seek, and there you shall come.
And yet in spite of our warning that I know many of you read, some are still steeped in the Christmas worship. We have been very clear about this. Our telling you to go and spend time with your family was not to celebrate the season but to be with your family and to be a witness should Yehovah open that door to you.
Is this not the reason we are studying the Temple of Yehovah and learning its rich history. So that you can go there and worship Yehovah at the proper place as you are commanded to do at the proper time as shown to you in Lev 23 and only in Lev 23?
Deu 12:6 And there you shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offering of your hand, and your vows, and your free-will offerings, and the first-born of your herds and of your flocks. And there you shall eat before Jehovah your God, and you shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to, you and your households in which Jehovah your God has blessed you. You shall not do according to all that we do here today, each doing whatever is right in his own eyes.
We are also warned in Jeremiah about following the ways of the heathen.
Jer 10:1 Hear the Word which Jehovah speaks to you, O house of Israel. So says Jehovah, Do not learn the way of the nations, and do not be terrified at the signs of the heavens; for the nations are terrified at them. For the customs of the people are vain; for one cuts a tree out of the forest with the axe, the work of the hands of the workman. They adorn it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers, so that it will not wobble. They are like a rounded post, and they cannot speak. They must surely be lifted, because they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them; for they cannot do evil nor good, for it is not in them. There is none like You, O Jehovah; You are great, and Your name is great in might.
But Israel did not heed Yehovah and they went a whoring after these other false gods and their false traditions. This began with the Kingdom being divided between Jeroboam and Rehoboam, the son of Solomon.
1Ki 14:15 For Jehovah shall strike Israel as the reed waves in the water, and He shall root up Israel out of this good land which He gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the River, because they have made their Asherahs, provoking Jehovah to anger. And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who sinned, and that he made Israel to sin.
We as a nation are no different today and we as a nation will pay that price once again by being defeated and going into captivity. We were warned not to do as they have done.
Deu 20:16 But of the cities of these people, which Jehovah your God gives you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breathes. But you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites; as Jehovah your God has commanded you, so that they may not teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done to their gods. So you would sin against Jehovah your God.
Leviticus 18:3 You shall not follow the practices of the land of Egypt, where you used to live, or the practices of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. You must not walk in their customs.
Leviticus 20:23 You must not follow the statutes of the nations I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and I abhorred them.
Judges 6:10 And I said to you: ‘I am the LORD your God. You must not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.’ But you did not obey Me.”
Yehovah has told us that our year was to begin when the barley was Aviv.
Exo 12:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you.
The Biblical year begins with the first New Moon after the barley in Israel reaches the stage in its ripeness called Aviv. The period between one year and the next is either 12 or 13 lunar months. Because of this, it is important to check the state of the Barley crops at the end of the 12th month. If the barley is Aviv at this time, then the following New Moon is Hodesh Ha-Aviv (“New Moon of the Aviv”). If the barley is still immature, we must wait another month and then check the barley again at the end of the 13th month.
The reason we need Barley is to make the Wave Sheaf offering on the 1st day of the week after the Sabbath.
Lev 23:9 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, When you have come into the land which I give to you, and shall reap the harvest of it, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. And he shall wave the sheaf before Jehovah to be received for you. On the next day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. And you shall offer that day when you wave the sheaf, a male lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering to Jehovah. And its food offering shall be two-tenths part of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to Jehovah for a sweet savor. And the drink offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. And you shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor green ears, until the same day, until you have brought an offering to your God. It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
So we must watch the growth of the Barley to know if the year is going to be 12 month or 13 months. It must ripe enough to make the wave sheaf offering.
Where is Aviv Mentioned in the Hebrew Bible?
The story of the Exodus relates “This day you are going out in the the month of the Aviv.” (Ex 13:4).
To commemorate that we left Egypt in the month of the Aviv, we are instructed to bring the Passover sacrifice and celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) at this time of year. In Dt 16:1 we are commanded:
“Keep the month of the Aviv and make the Passover (sacrifice) to Yehovah your God at night, because in the month of the Aviv, Yehovah your God took you out of Egypt”.
Similarly, we are commanded in Ex 23:15,
“You will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread; seven days you will eat unleavened bread, as I have commanded you, at the time of the month of the Aviv, because in it you went out of Egypt.”
The same is commanded in Ex 34:18,
“You will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread; seven days you will eat unleavened bread, as have I commanded you, at the time of the month of the Aviv, because in the month of the Aviv you went out of Egypt.”
What is Aviv?
Aviv indicates a stage in the development of the barley crops. This is clear from Ex 9:31-32 which describes the devastation caused by the plague of hail:
“And the flax and the barley were smitten, because the barley was Aviv and the flax was Giv’ol. And the wheat and the spelt were not smitten because they were dark (Afilot).”
The above passage relates that the barley crops were destroyed by the hail while the wheat and spelt were not damaged. To understand the reason for this we must look at how grain develops. When grains are early in their development they are flexible and have a dark green color. As they become ripe they take on a light yellowish hue and become more brittle. The reason that the barley was destroyed and the wheat was not is that the barley had reached the stage in its development called Aviv and as a result had become brittle enough to be damaged by the hail. In contrast, the wheat and spelt were still early enough in their development, at a stage when they were flexible and not susceptible to being damaged by hail. The description of the wheat and spelt as “dark” (Afilot) indicates that they were still in the stage when they were deep green and had not yet begun to lighten into the light yellowish hue which characterizes ripe grains. In contrast, the barley had reached the stage of Aviv at which time it was no longer “dark” and at this point it probably had begun to develop golden streaks.
We know from several passages that barley which is in the state of Aviv has not completely ripened, but has ripened enough so that its seeds can be eaten parched in fire. Parched barley was a commonly eaten food in ancient Israel and is mentioned in numerous passages in the Hebrew Bible as either “Aviv parched (Kalui) in fire” (Lev 2,14) or in the abbreviated form “parched (Kalui/ Kali)” (Lev 23:14; Jos 5:11; 1Sam 17:17; 1 Samuel 25:18; 2 Samuel 17:28; Ruth 2:14).
While still early in its development, barley has not yet produced large enough and firm enough seeds to produce food through parching. This early in its development, when the “head” has just come out of the shaft, the seeds are not substantial enough to produce any food. At a later stage, the seeds have grown in size and have filled with liquid. At this point the seeds will shrivel up when parched and will only produce empty skins. Over time the liquid is replaced with dry material and when enough dry material has amassed the seeds will be able to yield “barley parched in fire”.
Aviv and the Harvest
The month of the Aviv is the month which commences after the barley has reached the stage of Aviv. 2-3 weeks after the beginning of the month the barley has moved beyond the stage of Aviv and is ready to be brought as the “wave-sheaf offering” (Hanafat HaOmer). The “wave-sheaf offering” is a sacrifice brought from the first stalks cut in the harvest and is brought on the Sunday which falls out during Passover (Chag HaMatzot). This is described in Lev 23:10-11,
“When you come to the land which I give you, and harvest its harvest, you will bring the sheaf of the beginning of your harvest to the priest. And he will wave the sheaf before Yehovah so you will be accepted; on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest will wave it.”
From this it is clear that the barley, which was Aviv at the beginning of the month, has become harvest-ready 15-21 days later (i.e by the Sunday during Passover). Therefore, the month of the Aviv can not begin unless the barley has reached a stage where it will be harvest-ready 2-3 weeks later.
That the barley must be harvest-ready 2-3 weeks into the month of the Aviv is also clear from Dt 16:9 which states:
“From when the sickle commences on the standing grain you will begin to count seven weeks.”
From Lev 23:15 we know that the seven weeks between Passover (Chag Hamatzot) and Pentecost (Shavuot) begin on the day when the wave-sheaf offering is brought (i.e. the Sunday which falls out during Passover):
“And you shall count from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day you bring the sheaf of waving; they will be seven complete Sabbaths.”
Therefore, the “sickle commences on the standing grain” on the Sunday during Passover, i.e. 2-3 weeks after the beginning of the month of the Aviv. If the barley is not developed enough so that it will be ready for the sickle 2-3 weeks later, then the month of the Aviv can not begin and we must wait till the following month.
It should be noted that not all the barley ripens in the Land of Israel at the same time. The wave-sheaf offering is a national sacrifice brought from the first fields to become harvest-ready. However, the first-fruit offerings brought by individual farmers can vary in ripeness anywhere from “Aviv parched in fire” to fully ripe grain which may be brought “crushed” or “coarsely ground”. This is what is meant in Lev 2:14,
“And when you bring a first-fruit offering to Yehovah; you shall bring your first-fruit offering as Aviv parched in fire or crushed Carmel” (Carmel is grain which has hardened beyond Aviv to the point where it can be “crushed” or “coarsely ground”).
All of the above passages have been translated directly from the Hebrew and it is worth noting that the King James translators seem to have only understood the various Hebrew agricultural terms very poorly. In Lev 2:14 they translated Carmel as “full ears” and “Aviv” as “green ears” whereas in Lev 23:14 they translated Carmel as “green ears”!
In summation, barley which is in the state of Aviv has 3 characteristics:
It is brittle enough to be destroyed by hail and has begun to lighten in color (it is not “dark”).
The seeds have produced enough dry material so it can be eaten parched.
It has developed enough so that it will be harvest-ready 2-3 weeks later.
The Dark Side of New Years Celebrations
You have now read the proper time of the New Year according to Yehovah. So what is this celebration the world is doing January 1? To answer that we ask you to read our article on where it began and how. Who is Father Time and who is the New Year Baby? What does the giant scythe mean and how is this connected to the grim reaper? You are about to learn the very dark side of keeping the worlds New Years celebrations.
- Newsletter 5851-044 News Years Day- Father Time
W also ask you to again if you have not already done so to read our article on Christmas and see just how connected it is to The worlds New Years Celebration. You have time right now to read both so please do and then share them.
- Newsletter 5842-009 Are You Worshipping Molech, or just Keeping Christmas?
It is a trick question? Temple like the built one in 1 Samuel? Or tabernacle like the one in Exodus in the desert? Or the dwelling place of YAHOVAH as when he was in the garden with Adam in Genesis? You are going to say none of them right?
Dear brother Joseph,
I stopped keeping Christmas around 2005, still in Sunday system and not in sabbath and feasts of Yehovah. The Ruach was working in me then as I hated it. I watched David Pawson speak on you tube Christ and Christmas? The truth about Christmas. He gave so mu h information about it origins and says Christians should not keep it. Sadly, people who know Jesus, Yeshua, are not willing to let go of their traditions and I have found this when I have spoken out even quoting He will not share His glory with another.
We speak and if they do not want to hear, move on.
Many will come in that day saying lord lord and he will say”Depart from me, I never knew you”
Some are teachable others not. I am not boasting of what I have been shown but grateful to Abba and still wling to hear more from him and listen to other brothers or sisters share.
This was written in the newsletter you linked to this week:
”The tradition of the Christmas tree symbolically portrayed the death and reincarnation of Osiris in his son, Horus.”
Would we want such a thing anywhere near our homes or would we obey Yah and destroy them?
Deut 12:2 “You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3 “And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images with fire; you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place.”
What a pathetic witness for people who drive by and see these symbols of abomination on our property or even sadder for those who visit our home and see these idols standing in the center of our living rooms.
Jer 10:2 Thus says Yahweh: “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest, The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4 They decorate it with silver and gold; They fasten it with nails and hammers So that it will not topple. 5 They are upright, like a palm tree, And they cannot speak; They must be carried, Because they cannot go by themselves. Do not be afraid of them, For they cannot do evil, Nor can they do any good.”
That’s pretty clear and blunt is it not? Oh, but let’s put a carnal spin on it and ignore the first part that commands us not to put a tree in our house and point people to the last verse that says “Do not be afraid of them.” Don’t be foolish and know where your fear should be.
Isa 8:13 Yahweh of hosts, Him you shall sanctify; Let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread.
Pr 1:7 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living Elohim.
Idols of any sort are harmless pieces of wood or metal and scriptures show us they are nothing and should not be feared for their physical makeup. However, their power lies in the demons behind them and the symbolism they carry. Listen to Paul as he quotes Deut 32:1
1Co 10:19 What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to Elohim, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.
I guess you can tell I’m still in shock from hearing you encourage people to follow your example and allow an xmas tree in their house especially after your harsh condemnation of those who celebrate Hanukkah.
As always, I appreciate your newsletter and the long hours and hard work you put into them.
As usual, I allow you to attack me with your misunderstood rhetoric. I have never encouraged anyone to allow Christmas trees in their homes. Sorry, that is a lie. But if you want to believe it and if it will fuel your attacks then go for it. You want to attack those who are doing a work, go for it. You don’t want to go into the churches and teach them that is your excuse not to, then go for it. You say you appreciate the work I put into this. I would really hate to see what you would say if you did not approve of it. I have put into practice those things I encourage others to do and I am pretty beat up right about now during this season after getting told off by family and others not to mention those who claim to be brethren like yourself. So go ahead and kick away while I am down.
In Genesis 34, Dinah, the sister of the sons of Jacob, was defiled (raped?) by an uncircumcised man. The sons of Jacob were furious about this and full of anger, but a peace arrangement was made with the entire community that this uncircumcised man lived such that all of the men of the community became circumcised. However, Simeon and Levi were still angry about these men’s past (who had actually converted to being circumcised) and went and killed them all. Their father Jacob was not happy about this. In Genesis 49, just as with Reuben for another reason, neither Simeon or Levi received the blessing because of this anger. That is why we read so much about JUDAH in the scriptures! Judah was the next in line after those three, and Judah received the expected blessing.
Concerning the paganism at Christmas/Hanukkah, and other times, should we teach through peaceful/gentle methods or forceful anger? I think this subject was addressed well enough last week… however, my thoughts: Matthew 5:9 KJV “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Once again, this does not mean condoning the situation, but rather finding a peaceful and gentle way of dealing with it as a mentor to the spiritually uncircumcised.
2nd Timothy 2:23-26 KJV
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Grandpa Joe DuMond says that one way or another Sighted Moon Site will be closed down in 2020. This fulfills a prophesy. Please read on.
Regarding the next blood Moon occurring next month, in January, reminds me as a warning of the coming spilt blood from all the nations of Israel – “The Whole House Of Israel” – “It is Jacob’s Trouble”.
As Grandpa Joe DuMond has just written in this Newsletter that one way or the other the Sighted Moon Site will be shut down and gone underground, and nowhere to be found.
From what I read in the news about the modern technology introduction of Google Snitch Apps, in Indonesia, I can see and I can forecast the great Famine of the Word is at the doorstep.
Indonesia Launches ‘Snitch’ App Targeting Religious Minorities. Link = https://www.hrw.org/news/2018/11/30/indonesia-launches-snitch-app-targeting-religious-minorities
Read about this Snitch of reporting a Christian to the police in Indonesia. It will soon be applied to the entire world. The Christian lives are at stake – their martyrdom time is at the door.
This modern Snitch App may soon be applied worldwide. Also by Sighted Moon Site closing down one way or another, it will also fulfill the Scripture written in Amos 8:11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD. Amos 8:12 They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it.
The Wave Sheaf.
Do we fully understand the full meaning of the Wave Sheaf celebration as written in Leviticus 23?
Leviticus 23:10 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. Leviticus 23:11 He shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.
Notice that the sheaf is part of the Barley – the firstfruits (Plural) of the barley harvest. This handful of barley was given to the Priest to offer it to the Lord. Therefore the handful of the barley sheaf represents the first handful of the Barley Harvest and not the Priest himself.
What does this Wave Sheaf represent?
It was the Priest in the temple who lifted up the barley sheaf and offered it to the Almighty God. We read in Hebrews 2:17 and Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
Jesus Christ is our High priest, and as our High Priest He could not be both a High Priest and a Barley Sheaf wave at the same time. The Barley sheaf had to be in the Priest’s hand to wave it up to God. Therefore who are the handful of the Firstfruit Barley presented to God the Father in Heaven by The High Priest Jesus Christ?
This Question puzzled me for quite some time.
We know that Jesus Christ is the First who resurrected from the dead at sunset after the end of the weekly Sabbath. We read that there was an Earthquake at the same time of Christ’s killing at 3:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon, as written in Matthew 27:50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Mat 27:51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,
On early Sunday morning, when the angel rolled out the stone, which blocked the cave-grave where Christ was buried, at that same time, there was another Great Earthquake as written in Matthew 28:1 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. Matthew 28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.
Then we connect the following as written in Matthew 27:52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; Mat 27:53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
We know from the Scripture that some saints in the Old Testament were chosen and were given God’s Spirit as we read that David begged God not to take His Spirit away from him as written in Psalm 51:11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
There were only a handful of saints to whom God gave His Holy Spirit, who had died before Jesus Christ’s resurrection.
NOTICE that this was the first resurrection of the Saints who died before the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ had to resurrect First, and then these Saints were resurrected after Christ’s Resurrection the following Sunday morning with a Great Earthquake.
The Question is, Did these resurrected Saints had to have a second death? God forbid.
From my Biblical understanding these resurrected Saints, first walked into the city of Jerusalem and then they went up to Heaven with Jesus Christ when Jesus Christ presented Himself to His Father that Sunday morning at the same time when the priest at the Temple waved the barley sheaf. When Jesus Christ presented Himself to His Father in Heaven, He became the High Priest of Heaven, and as the High Priest in Heaven, He waved and offered to His Father the first resurrected Saints represented on earth by the handful Barley sheaf.
Now we go to the Question: Who are the 24 Elders mentioned in the Book of Revelation?
When the Apostle John was told to write the book of Revelation, the 24 Elders were already up there in Heaven at the Altar of God the Father. It was at the same time that God the Father handed the book of revelation to His Son Jesus Christ to read it, and told the Apostle John to write a record of the Book, which God the Father had written and kept it a secret until that very time.
The Apostle John cried when nobody could read the book in the Father’s hand. And it was one of the 24 Elders who told John not to cry. Revelation 5:4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. Rev 5:5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
The Apostle John stood amongst the 24 Elders. These Elders are not referred to as angels. These Elders are higher than the Angels, and Jesus Christ is also amongst them. Revelation 5:6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
These 24 Elders have already received their reward by having Crowns as Kings on their heads and set on their thrones at the time the Apostle John was told to write a record of the Book of Revelation. Revelation 4:4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
Although they have already received their Crowns ( read also Revelation 3:11 about the Crown ) but they are still waiting in Heaven for the promise to become part of the Kingdom of God as written in Hebrews 11:39 And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise,
They will be part of the Government of God together with the rest of the saints, at the end of the Barley Harvest as represented by the Shavout – Pentecost Celebration as written in Hebrews 11:40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us. Jesus Christ will be bringing these Saints when He returns back to this earth as written in 1Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
Also as recorded in Revelation 20:5 referred to as the First Resurrection, is when the whole Firstfruit harvest of the entire Barley (Saints) will become part of God’s Kingdom all together at the time when Jesus Christ returns back to this earth.
These 24 Elders also offer to God the prayers of the living saints. Revelation 5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
Who else cold these 24 Elders be, except the handful of resurrected saints offered to God the Father by Jesus Christ when He as the High Priest ascended to His Father on the Sunday morning after His resurrection?
My next Question is who will resurrect next and ascend to God in Heaven?
We read in Revelation 11:7 When they (the two Witnesses) finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.
Now we read about another Great Earthquake taking place at the same time of the next resurrection of the two saints. Rev 11:11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Rev 11:12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. Revelation 11:13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Notice that at the resurrection of these two saints thre is going to be another Great Earthquake. Also after their resurrection they were told to go up to Heaven, and those who hated them saw them being lifted up to heaven. This is not the same Resurrection time as mentioned in 1Corinthians 15:23 and Revelation 20:6.
From my Biblical understanding it is at this time that the three and a half years of the Great Tribulation will start.
You do allow people to attack you and your beliefs, which is a testament to your faith in what you teach and your tolerance for other’s opinion. But often you come back the next week with a counter-attack based on scripture and truth. I am sorry you feel I “attacked” yo, whereas I’ve always tried to write factually and not personally, with scripture and not rhetoric.
You wrote: “I have never encouraged anyone to allow Christmas trees in their homes. Sorry, that is a lie.”
If that is true then what you wrote in your Dec 13th newsletter is being misunderstood by myself and others.
Dec 13th you wrote: “When we go to my family or they come to our house, I am there and we talk and play and have fun and eat. But on Christmas morning when they gather around the tree, I do not join in. I stay in my room until it is over and then come out. My absence is noticed.”
I took from that statement you have a tree in your house otherwise, how could “they gather around the tree.” Whether you realize it or not many people on your newsletter list follow what you say regardless if you admonish them to think for themselves. All you have to do is read the comments of that Dec 13th newsletter. If we are misunderstanding the statement you made in that newsletter and you do not allow an xmas tree in your house please clarify. And if that is the case I sincerely apologise and ask for your forgiveness.
Joe, I am sorry to hear that you are beaten down but don’t feel alone for I personally know others who get despondent, lonely and also feel attacked as they try to walk obediently through this worldly season of so called joy.
Let’s fight the good fight and carry on with faith as we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses who suffered far more than what we have so far had to endure.
I think that Joseph should not be accused of lies by one who cannot see the difference between “encouraged” and “allowed”.
Joseph DOn’t let a few nay sayers and the minions of Satan get you down , there are PLENTY of people who agree with the scriptures and you are right on with the proper interpretations proven by the WORD itself. You don’t need justification from a MAN in fact that’s the LAST place to look of it . Follow your GUT and the leading of the Holy Spirit … for YOU and I know whom we serve! Peace and Agape to you and to all the brethren at this grand deception time of year for it can be a lonely time for US.. Shalom Bother.
Greetings Sightedmoon.com family.
The Tabernacle came to my mind as a type of Temple of Yehovah also. I believe the first time The Temple that Solomon built is first mentioned in 1 Samuel but I sort of thought it might be a trick question also.
Mat 24:28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered.
I imagine there a lot of beat up brethren that are sharing these truths this time of year. It saddens me to no end that not only do we have to deal with the world’s traditions we need to tiptoe around some brethren to top it all off. Which I am not very good at. I was told by few people that the Christmas season is not the time to share these things and I ticked off a few people for doing so
I’ve left groups for not allowing brethren to grow in knowledge and have no time for any leadership of any groups that disfellowship for sharing Truths that are urgent in nature.
One of my favorote excuses for people not accepting facts is because of the person’s religious beliefs that is teaching them. How unfortunate for these people who have made it so far only to be swallowed up by their pride and their vanities, so close to actually overcoming the enemy. Examine yourselves brethren. Sometimes we need to prove things that seem to offend our beliefs more so than things that do not.
Sightedmoon.com has been the only place I can go learn that pushes the complete Truth of Scripture and I have a hard time thinking that sometime soon we will no longer have these teachings so easily available to us.
No doubt in my mind that some use this website to try get others to their own websites. Vanity and pride are the enemies favorite sins. What will the scoffers do without you Mr. Dumond lol? You can take strength from the people you have reached. I personally have proven these things (Yehovah has proven these things to me) in ways that few would believe by following the patterns Mr. Dumond researched and seen how this pattern of judgment either for blessings and/or curses can be seen in one’s own life when charted out in Jubilee cycle style chart. I am available if anyone would like help in doing their own life Sabbatical cycle chart up for themselves. It just a matter of starting from your birth date and going in 7-year cycles. I personally was blown away by what was revealed to me for taking the time to chart it out and still occasionally find things during years that match up to the Sabbatical Cycle meanings. Once you have the years charted you can start by looking to see what years your children were born. Seeing that is the greatest blessing Yehovah gives us and see where this happened in relation to the research. Maybe look to see what year you first started to keep Sabbath. With my personal life chart, I started keeping Sabbath in the 6th Atonement Sabbatical Cycle which blew me away. The 7th cycle was when I first started to learn about the Sabbatical years rests which lined up with joining the Family of Yehovah. Gave me chills up and down my back when I first saw these things matching the website’s research
Mat 24:19 And woe to those who are with child, and to those who give suck in those days!
Mat 24:20 But pray that your flight is not in the winter, nor on the sabbath day;
It is important to see that there is both a physical side to these warnings and a spiritual one. Brethren just coming to the knowledge of these truths will not have any truth to learn from. We drink spiritual milk as babes and many will not have the truth to grow from which is truly a sad thing to grip.
I have been downloading the websites teachings but it is taking a lot of time and saving the information both on my laptop and an emergency stick/s for just a time as we are expecting to come to pass. It probably will take another couple weeks to get them all downloaded at the pace I am going. I think it is wise for others to start doing the same thing. The teachings are up in the archives section of the website in the files for years they were posted in
My prayers are going out for all the bruised up brethren who are doing their utmost to share these truths this time of year or any other season for that matter. With a special prayer for those sharing this work with others. May Yehovah bless you all mightily for your diligence to His word and to the Truth that is being rejected in so many areas of the world. Hang in there brethren. The events of the news are already proving this work to be true. I actually think Yehovah will give people time to revel and mock before total destruction comes upon Israel so I not turn away from what I learned here for some time into the end of this cycle and possible into the captivity cycle before I would ever think of giving up on this work. Seems to me that could be something to take into consideration before declaring this as a false timeline.
Thank you for your loyalty to the brethren who are seeking these truths, Mr. Dumond. Also to Aike and James and everyone working to share this with the world in their areas. We need each other’s prayers more now than ever!!
Love out to you all from NS, Canada.
Shabbat Shalom all
Mat_8:12 But the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_13:42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_13:50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_22:13 Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_24:51 And He shall cut him apart and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_25:30 And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Luk_13:28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you will see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and yourselves being thrust out.
You are spot on with the admonition to “teach through peaceful/gentle methods” and never, ever with “forceful anger.” And you are just as spot on that we can never condone these sinful situations or allow ourselves to be drawn into participating for convenience sake. I can personally testify to sitting through yelling, weeping and anger while remaining calm as possible and steadily answering the questions with history and scripture. Some have attempted to frame this little discussion about witnessing angrily versus peacefully when, if they were reading carefully, it has been about witnessing uncompromisingly versus placatingly. There is no compromising when it comes to the truth or Torah. When Yahweh sent Israel into the heathen nations He did not want them to negotiate or be conciliatory. Same with xmas, I simply say, “As for me and my house I don’t do any of it and here’s the reasons. I’m sorry you’re upset and angry but my Elohim will not allow any compromise or appeasement on this matter and I aim to please Him and not anyone in this world.”
It a tough road to travel but in the end they respect your steadfastness and faith even if they still hate you. Hopefully, some might see how you practice what you teach and be persuaded to seek out more truth. It comes down to how much do we love truth and how much are we going to have to sacrifice for that truth. Unfortunately for Joe, and others I know personally, they get beat up by family and friends as they attempt to lovely teach them truth even after 30 or 40 years.
2Th 2:10 Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause Elohim shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
There will be tougher trials then xmas coming our way so “Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world” (1Pe 5:8-9).
Greetings David Hemphill,
You wrote: “I think that Joseph should not be accused of lies by one who cannot see the difference between “encouraged” and “allowed”.
Mr. Hemphill, please just re-read the posts and see who accused whom of lies. I don’t believe anyone is telling lies and it bemoans me to think of brothers charging other brothers with lying.
Shalom to all,
Sorry. I saw your statement :You wrote: “I have never encouraged anyone to allow Christmas trees in their homes. Sorry, that is a lie.” I didn’t pay enough attention to what the quotation marks were around.
Please disregard my previous comment.
I have followed your work for a number of years and it is good what you do.
I have a question if you can help with it. Using your charts and jubilee records, if the children of Israel entered the land in the year 2500 and were in the wilderness 40 years (2460) and had left Egypt 2 years earlier (2458). Now Moses was 120 years old when the children of Israel entered the land (2500). That means he was born in the year 2380 (at the end of the 4th cycle) and he is standing infront of Pharaoh at the age of 80 which is the year 2460. That does not tie up, have I missed something?
Can you help on this matter?
Great question Clev. Glad to see someone double checking the math. Yes, you have missed a few critical scriptures on this. I am saying Moses died two years before they crossed the Jordan. And that He went before Pharoah two years before the Exodus. You must read very carefully when Moses was reading the history to the people just before he dies. We do have an article on this very point. https://sightedmoon.com/moses-died-two-years-before-they-crossed-the-jordan/ Let me know what you think of this when you’re done.
