Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Zoom Meeting

There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our youtube channel.

We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.

We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.

Sabbath June 12, 2021, will be at 1 PM Eastern for our afternoon service. 

We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Two Conferences

This week I was able to be part of two conference sessions in the Philippines. One in Taytay in Central Philippines and the other in Pagudpud in Northern Philippines.

Dennis wrote;

shalom brother. .thank you so much the seminar was so successful from taytay (joel’s group) and quezon. . soon we will send videos and pictures. they were amazed and so glad to hear revelation specially you mentioned that philippines is going to play major rule in the end times

they want to learn more

Torah Meet Up – Quezon held on last June 07-08, 2021 was successful, Thank You Abba for giving us the opportunity to minister to the unreachable even amidst the Pandemic, we would like to thank the following Ministries behind the Torah Meet Up Seminars: Torah Center Digos, LWAM and Sightedmoon. We would like to expand this more and spread more the Torah and the Teachings of the Kingdom of Yeshua during this endtimes. Continue to pray and support our vision to fulfill the commission assigned to us. -Torah Meet Up , Philippines

Leo wrote back to say this once the meeting was over.

Shalom Joe and wow – you did a great teaching among the Pagudpud pastors and that challenge you gave was a fired up to them. They are anxious and eager to celebrate and experience Yom Teruw’ah.

I want to thank all those involved in setting this up and assisting me while I presented.  I also want to thank you, the brethren, who are supporting these endeavours. Randy Cates who did help me do these meetings wrote to say the following.

Brother Joseph,
First of all, I am so thankful and humbled that Yehovah brought me here to Sighted Moon ministries. I have grown so much in the last couple years because of learning and understanding the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles that you teach, and now I teach also,  praise Yehovah again for the understanding! It brings the Bible to life, knowing that these are real people and that you can put an actual date on events that happened in the Bible like when the flood took place with Noah, when the covenant was made with Abraham, and when the Exodus was with Moses, when King David was anointed and reigned as king, etc all leading up to the 8th Day! The Last Great Day!! But now also understanding this, it ultimately brings me into reality of where we are in time now. We truly are that last generation beloved. We know there is still events that need to happen written in the book of Revelations and in the Prophets about end time events still to come. It is paramount that the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles are understood to all believers so that they will not be deceived by the counter/anti-messiah events soon to come that could cost you everything, even the crown Yehovah has waiting for you. I’m asking you to download the charts the books, videos, and whatever material is there and ask Yehovah to open your eyes to understand what is being taught here. All we are doing is counting, with 89 different proofs throughout the charts of what is being said here to be fact. And finally when you do understand, you are to share with another! Thank you brother Joseph for ALL the work you do for Yehovah.
Your fellow servant,
Randy Cates

Our message is simple and direct. We show them how little time is left by explaining the Jubilee Cycles and where we are in them. We explain the COVID curse as being from Yehovah as part of the curses of Lev 26 along with what is today called Global warming. We explain to them why no man can know the day or the hour and if they do not know, then we explain to them why they are part of the 5 foolish brides. We also quickly explain to them how the 70 weeks confirm these things. And finally, we show them where the Bible tells them the role the people of the Philippines have in these end-time events and how they must now prepare for what is coming, mainly about the severe drought the two witnesses will bring on the entire world.

Normally this teaching takes about 40 hours or more. And we jam all of this into a one or two-hour presentation. It is hard-hitting and stunning for those who are not expecting it. But as both Leo and Dennis attest, it is shaking the people up and causing them to want to learn the Holy Days and prophecy and how they can serve Yehovah.

And that is a mission accomplished moment. But these people need more teachings and more follow-ups and more explanations so they can not only just know, but so they can understand and then they themselves go and explain and teach it to others. Pray for more labourers to do this work.

We have more conferences coming up with Dennis in Mindinao and Aike is planning a campaign in the Cebu and central Islands area. We are going to continue to support and help all of these projects to grow and flourish to the best of our abilities. But as we continue to say, the Gospel is free, but it cost money for the venues and the travel meals and lodging that are involved in order to accomplish these events. Please continue to support and donate to so we can help sponsor more events like this.

And I want to add this.

Some of you are stuck in your anti-vaccine mantra. It seems to be the only thing you can talk about. The trouble with your position is that it does not teach anyone Torah. It does not help to support the teaching of the Torah. Those of you going around screaming about the boogyman in the jab or the evil plans of this or that person and the things that others are doing in some backroom, or even those of you claiming the election was stolen, are all wasting your time. I delete you as soon as you begin to talk about that trash. I am not going to waste my time reading your endless stupidities. And you all get so upset at me for not responding to your trash talk. Many of you have been attacking us and spreading falsehoods about sightedmoon as a result.

This work that we are doing in the Philippines and in East Africa and in other parts of the world, that is what is priceless. This work teaching about Yehovah and what He is doing in these last days is what is important. Learning about the deeper aspects of the Torah is what matters. We are laying a solid foundation in Torah for others to build upon. We are not spreading half-truths or lies about things that just do not and will not matter.

Those of you who are experts in what Alex Jones is teaching and his lies are feeding at the tree of knowledge of good and evil and are going to be told by our Messiah when He comes and you know that time is very soon, that He never knew you. You are wasting your time like the five foolish virgins learning things that will not matter next week or next year let alone in 23 years’ time when the 7th Millennium of rest begins.

How sad it will be to have to hear those words, I never knew you, and you miss out on the 7th Millennium of rest because you spent all your time watching youtube videos about the vaccine and this or that doctor and what they say about the evils of the jab. It is time to cut the crap, cut the bull s___ and begin to get serious with Yehovah’s word. If you are not willing to do that, then stop sending me your endless diatribe of lashon harah and filling my inbox with your nonsense.

What we just did as explained above in the Philippines, and what we have been doing in East Africa and what we are about to do in India and China is what counts. Isaiah tells us that the Filipinos will be teaching the Gentile nations in these last days. So to be a part of that work is exhilarating. Come back from being told I never knew you. Come back to and help us to help the Philippines to get Yehovah’s work done. Something big is about to happen in East Africa as well.

I never kicked any of you out. I left the door open for you to come back. I know what I say about what you have been doing makes you mad. So get over it and grow up and let’s all go together moving forward so we all can hear the words, well done good and faithful servant.

Brazil on drought alert, faces worst dry spell in 91 years

Brazil’s government agencies warned of droughts this week as the country faces its worst dry spell in 91 years, increasing fears of energy rationing, hitting hydroelectric power generation and agriculture while raising the risk of Amazon fires.

Late on Thursday, the Electricity Sector Monitoring Committee (CMSE), which is linked to Brazil’s Mines and Energy Ministry, recommended that the water regulator ANA recognize a state of “water scarcity,” after a prolonged drought hit Central and Southern parts of Brazil along the Paraná river basin.

Separately, a weather monitoring agency linked to the Agriculture Ministry issued its first “emergency drought alert” for June to September, saying rains are likely to remain scarce in five Brazilian states during that period.

The lack of rain across much of Brazil has negative implications for grain cultivation, livestock and electricity generation, as Brazil relies heavily on hydro dams for its power. The dry weather could lead to severe fires in the Amazon rainforest and Pantanal wetlands, scientists said.

And here is the latest on the USA drought.

You can compare it to last week.

2021 Solar Eclipse

I took this picture myself Thursday morning just after 5 AM. I was sent the following constellation chart which also is interesting to ponder.

What does this mean?

I do not know. But this is what happened the last time we had a similar event.

On December 26, photographer Elias Chasiotis planned on capturing the solar eclipse while on vacation in Al Wakrah, Qatar, he probably didn’t count on what came next: A sunrise that appears to be two red devil horns over the Persian Gulf just days before the US embassy attack in Baghdad and one week before Soleimani’s assassination.

Only five days later, Iraqi backed insurgents attacked the US embassy in Baghdad. Exactly a week after the sunset was captured, IRGC head Qassam Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike.

It is just amazing to me to know that we are on a planet that is spinning through space at 1700 km/hr and to see the moon spin around the earth is just as fascinating. But when we have a solar eclipse is the only time you actually get to see all of these things in action at one time. You see the sun rising. You actually see the Moon moving across the sun from right to left while the sun is moving up in the sky. And when it is over you realize we really are moving through space.

But more so, I am amazed to see Yehovahs two hands-on His Clock moving. We use the sun to determine the barley ripeness and the moon to begin the month using the sighted crescent moon. It is just amazing to watch a crescent sun.

On Thursday, June 24, 2021, will be our third Super moon in a row this year. The perigee or the closeness of the moon to the earth, reflecting more of the sun’s rays at night, according to Cyrus Harding, is the time when men do crazy things and this crazy cycle remains above 60% which is high. We will have another interview with Cyrus Harding and Mark Webb very soon.

Yes, that is right. 3 Super Moons in a row. April 26, and then another one on May 26, which also was a full blood moon and then this was followed by the Solar eclipse Thursday, June 10. All of this cycle ends with the next super moon on June 24, 2021. Will there be a blood moon on June 24? Watch and see. NASA does not forecast one until November 21, 2021.

The 9th of Av is on June 20, 2021, this year according to the crescent moon and barley calendar, and the Super moon is June 24, 2021. Are all of these events related? Time will tell. Until then watch and observe.

If you want to know more about the constellations you can watch this video by Bob Wadsworth on the constellations.


The 9th Of Av

With the 9th of the 5th month just over a week away, I have for you the history of the 9th of Av and why you should remember this date. This date begins the 40 days of mourning in Jewish tradition for the destruction of both Temples.

This year the 9th of Av is from July 18th, 2021 on the Hebrew Calendar, until August 26, 2021. But for us it will be June 20th, 2021 9th of Av Sighted Moon Calendar until July 29, 2021.

It was on this date that many things in History took place which has caused us to mourn;

  • The Rebellion of the 10 spies, which incurred the curse of wandering in the wilderness for 40 years until they had all died.
  • The destruction of Solomon’s Temple
  • The Destruction of Herod’s Temple all took place at this same time.

I am going to also include here the fall of Samaria, although I have no exact date. Historians agree that Hoshea stopped tribute to the Assyrians in the 4th month of the year 726 BC which then resulted in the siege of Samaria for 3 three years by Shalmaneser until Samaria fell in 723 BC and Hosea arrested and later died in prison.

2Ki 17:1  In the twelfth year of Ahaz king of Judah, Hoshea the son of Elah began to reign over Israel in Samaria, nine years.

2Ki 17:2  And he did evil in the sight of Jehovah, but not like the kings of Israel who were before him.

2Ki 17:3  Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against him. And Hoshea became his servant and gave him taxes.

2Ki 17:4  And the king of Assyria found treachery in Hoshea, for he had sent messengers to So, king of Egypt, and had brought no taxes to the king of Assyria, as before, year by year. And the king of Assyria shut him up and bound him in prison.

2Ki 17:5  And the king of Assyria went up into all the land. And he went up to Samaria and besieged it three years.

We remember this day whether you are a Jew or you are part of the Ten Tribes or a Gentile, it matters not. A great tragedy took place on this date.

2730 years after being expelled from Israel the curse of Ezekiel`s 390 year X 7 prophecy, which began around the captivity in 723 BC. If we begin this curse with the siege and death of Hosea then it ends in 2005 if we use the traditional date of the fall of Samaria in 721 then it ends in 2010. Whichever date you use, the Ten Northern tribes of Israel can return back to the Land of Israel. It is interesting to note that began in 2005 with our understanding of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. We are currently reexamining this prophecy as what I just said is full of holes. But that is the current thinking.

So here is a more complete list of significant events on this date in Jewish history and why it is a time of mourning for the nation of Israel:

Av 9, 1377 BC – The ten spies brought the bad report leading to the wilderness wandering.
723 BC Samaria falls to Assyria Actual date not known Captivity begins 721 BC
Av 9, 586 BC – Babylonians destroy Solomon’s temple.
Av 9, 70 AD – Romans destroy 2nd temple.
Av 9, 135 AD – The Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by Roman Emperor Hadrian. The city of Betar — the Jews’ last stand against the Romans — was captured and liquidated. Over 100,000 Jews were slaughtered.
Av 9, 1290 AD – July 25, 1290 Jews forced out of England.
Av 9, 1492 AD – August 11, 1492 Jews forced out of Spain.
Av 9, 1914 AD – August 1, 1914 World War I Began (The immediate cause of the war was the June 28, 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, by Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Serb citizen of Austria-Hungary and member of the Black Hand. Wikipedia On August 1, 1914 Germany declared war on Russia)
Av 9, 1942 AD – July 23, 1942 – Treblinka extermination camp opened in occupied Poland, east of Warsaw. The camp is fitted with two buildings containing 10 gas chambers, each holding 200 persons. Carbon monoxide gas is piped in from engines placed outside the chamber, but Zyklon-B will later be substituted. Bodies are burned in open pits.
Av 9, 2005 AD – Starting at midnight on August 14, 2005, the entry and presence of Israeli citizens in the areas to be evacuated was prohibited under paragraph 22A of the Implementation of the Disengagement Plan Law 2005. Disengagement from the Gaza Strip was completed on August 22, and from northern Samaria on August 23, 2005.

This is why we read Lamentations at this time.
To understand the root of all of these calamities we must investigate the first event that took place on the 9th of Av. In this week’s Torah portion, Moses starts his final speech to the Israelite people where he rebukes them for their various mistakes and shortcomings throughout the forty years of wandering in the wilderness. One of the incidents of rebuke concerned the sending of the spies. Upon their return, the majority of the spies gave a negative report. This made the Israelite people nervous, and they did not want to proceed into the land of Israel. As it says, (Devarim 1:26-28): “And you did not want to ascend, and you rebelled against the word of HASHEM your G’d. You spoke evil in your tents and you said, ‘Because G’d hates us He took us out from the land of Egypt to deliver us into the hands of the Emorite to destroy us. To where shall we ascend? … A people greater and taller than we …:”

Time of weeping

Earlier (Bamidbar 14:1) the Torah related the return of the spies and the reaction of the people: “The entire assembly raised their voice and the people wept on that night.” Our sages (Taanis 29a) explain that it was the night of the 9th of Av when the Israelite people wept and G’d declared, “You were weeping without a cause. This night will be established as a time of weeping throughout the generations.”


It is mind-boggling how a small group of Israelite leaders could cause a whole nation to lose their faith in G’d who had taken them out of Egypt, split the Red Sea, and revealed Himself at Mount Sinai. As Moses responded (Devarim 1:30-33) “Don’t be broken and don’t fear them. HASHEM your G’d, Who goes ahead of you, He will fight for you, like all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes. And as you have seen in the wilderness that HASHEM your G’d carried you as a man carries his son. And in this matter, you don’t trust HASHEM your G’d?” How can people who experienced daily miracles with the Manna falling from Heaven to sustain them, and the well of Miriam following them throughout their journey in the wilderness, as well as the Clouds of Glory protecting them from their enemies and natural dangers, suddenly lose faith in the One who provided all these constant miracles? How could they even consider that G’d hated them, or, as our sages explain, that they feared that G’d did not have the power to conquer the land of Israel for them?

We also have the Temple again being destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. Why did Yehovah allow this a second time?

You have the curse coming on Israel the first time for not having Faith in Yehovah. You have the Temple being destroyed at this time in 586 BC because they were not obeying Yehovah. And we have the Temple destroyed in 70 AD. because they did not have a love for one another.

The Romans Destroy the Temple

In the year 66 AD the Jews of Judea rebelled against their Roman masters. In response, the Emperor Nero dispatched an army under the generalship of Vespasian to restore order. By the year 68, resistance in the northern part of the province had been eradicated and the Romans turned their full attention to the subjugation of Jerusalem. That same year, the Emperor Nero died by his own hand, creating a power vacuum in Rome. In the resultant chaos, Vespasian was declared Emperor and returned to the Imperial City. It fell to his son, Titus, to lead the remaining army in the assault on Jerusalem.

The Roman legions surrounded the city and began to slowly squeeze the life out of the Jewish stronghold. By the year 70, the attackers had breached Jerusalem’s outer walls and began a systematic ransacking of the city. The assault culminated in the burning and destruction of the Temple that served as the center of Judaism.

In victory, the Romans slaughtered thousands. Of those spared from death: thousands more were enslaved and sent to toil in the mines of Egypt, others were dispersed to arenas throughout the Empire to be butchered for the amusement of the public. The Temple’s sacred relics were taken to Rome where they were displayed in celebration of the victory.

The rebellion sputtered on for another three years and was finally extinguished in 73 AD with the fall of the various pockets of resistance including the stronghold at Masada.

What was the problem with the 10 spies?

Sat 17 June 2017 / 23 Sivan 5777 B”H Dr Maurice M. Mizrahi
Congregation Adat Reyim
Torah discussion on Shlach Lecha

What did the spies do wrong? Introduction

-Moses sends 12 spies to scout the land of Israel, at the request of the people [Deut. 1:22], who are not ready to accept God’s statement that the land is good and that He will grant them victory against its inhabitants.
-Ten of the 12 spies bring back an alarming report about the strength of the enemy and say that he cannot be defeated, which demoralizes the people. -God gets angry and decrees a forty-year wandering so the offenders will die before reaching the land.

What did the spies do wrong? Didn’t they do what spies are supposed to do?

The Lord spoke to Moses saying, “Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel… So Moses sent… [twelve] righteous men of distinction [including Joshua and Caleb]… Moses… said to them: …
“[Find out:] What [kind of] land is it? Are the people who inhabit it strong or weak? Are there few or many? [Is] the land… good or bad? [Are] the cities in camps or in fortresses? Is the soil fat or lean? Are there any trees in it or not?”

So they went up and explored the land… and returned… forty days later. They… came to Moses and Aaron and all… of Israel and [ten of the twelve spies] reported:

“…The land… is flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.
However, the inhabitants are mighty, and the cities are extremely huge and fortified… We are unable to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we… The land… consumes its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of stature… giants… descended from the giants. In our eyes, we seemed like grasshoppers, and so were we in their eyes.”

[Numbers 13:1-33]

The entire community raised their voices and shouted, and the people wept on that night. [They] complained against Moses and Aaron… saying,

“…Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be as spoils. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt? … Let us appoint a leader and return to Egypt!” Moses and Aaron fell on their faces… and Joshua and Caleb [the two dissenting spies] tore their clothes and said: “The land… is exceedingly good… The Lord… will bring us there and give it to us… Do not fear the inhabitants because… their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.”

The entire congregation threatened to pelt them with stones… The Lord said to Moses:

“How long will this people provoke Me? How much longer will they not believe in Me after all the signs I have performed in their midst? I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them…”

Moses said…
“But [then] the nations… will say… ‘Since the Lord lacked the ability to [give Israel the land] He slaughtered them in the desert…’ Please forgive…”

And the Lord said:
“I… forgive… However… how much longer will I have to put up with this evil congregation? … All those from the age of twenty and up… shall [not] come into the Land… except Caleb and Joshua… I will bring [your infants there]… but as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert [after] wandering for forty years.”

[The ten spies] who spread an evil report about the Land died in a plague… The people said: …

“We are ready to go up to the place of which the Lord spoke, for we have

sinned.” [Numbers 14:1-40]

The spies’ report came on the 9th of Av. Mishna: Every major disaster in Jewish history is connected to this date, beginning with the incident of the spies. [Taanit 4:6]

What did the spies do wrong?

They scared and demoralized the people.

Counter: 39 years later, Moses himself said the same to their children, as they were about to enter the Promised Land:

You will be coming to conquer nations that are greater and more powerful than you, with great cities, fortified to the skies. They are a great nation, as tall as giants… [Deut. 9:1-2]

Counter-counter: Moses was saying that to young men, to bring some realism into their enthusiasm.
They doubted God’s power. Their very mission implied doubt about the value of God’s gift and God’s ability to deliver it.
-God said “Send for yourself”, meaning “I am not commanding you, but if you wish, you may send.” Indeed, the people had come to Moses asking for that. [Deut. 1:22]

-Talmud: God told Moses, “I told them that the land is good. By their lives! Now I will give them the opportunity to fall into error through the words of the spies, so that they will not inherit it.” [Sotah 34b, Midrash Tanchuma, Shlach 5] -But spying for military preparations is OK. The Torah does not tell us to rely on miracles. It’s the spies’ presentation that was not OK. [Ramban]

They thought God may have changed His mind.

The spies reasoned that since Israel had sinned with the Golden Calf and in many places, God may not honor His promise of the land.

They asked themselves: “Why is God treating us like royalty when we are not deserving of such treatment?” Because of their sense of unworthiness the Jewish people could not have absolute trust in God. [Chafetz Chayyim]

They did not do a thorough job.

-Moses had tasked the spies: Find out if the people who inhabit the land are strong or weak. Implies physically and morally.
They did not report (or did not try to find out) what the inhabitants thought of them. Forty years later, Rahav in Jericho tells the spies sent by Joshua that the inhabitants feared Israel:

I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that a great fear of you has fallen upon us. All the inhabitants of the land faint because of you… As soon as we heard [of the miracles God performed for you] our hearts melted, no courage remained in any man, because of you. [Joshua 2:9-11].

-And the Jews themselves knew that. Earlier, in their Song at the Sea, they had said:

The people of Canaan will melt away. Terror and dread will fall on them. [Ex. 15:15-16]

-The spies made unwarranted assumptions. They said: “In our eyes, we

seemed like grasshoppers, and so were we in their eyes.” In Talmud,

Rabbi Mesharsheya asks:
The spies were liars. As regards “In our eyes, we seemed like grasshoppers”, very well; but how could they know that “so were we in their eyes”? [Sotah 35a]

How did the spies know how the inhabitants saw ISrael?

Being former slaves, they were fearful.

Their fear was greater than their faith, because they had been slaves. They were not ready to fight battles and be free in their own land. That would take a new generation, born in freedom. [Rambam, Guide for the Perplexed 3:32]

They wanted to continue to live in the desert, in isolation with a direct spiritual connection to God.
Hassidic masters: The spies did not doubt Israel could win battles, they just did not want to lose their unique relationship with God in the desert, removed from civilization and its problems. They did not want to become just another nation. They were not ready to “leave home and launch”.

But God wanted engagement with the world, not retreat from it. [Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi]

They went beyond their mission.

Spies are only supposed to provide hard information dispassionately. They have no business coloring their report with alarmist language or advising on a course of action. [Ramban on Num. 13:1, 13:27; Akeidat Yitzchak (Rabbi Yitzchak Arama, 15th- century Spain and Italy); Malbim on Num. 13:2]

They reported to the whole people.

Spies are supposed to report only to the leaders, not to the whole people!

The leaders then decide what to disclose, to whom and when. [Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, 19th century Germany]

They spoke lashon hara against the land and God.

The Talmud says:
-It was taught: Rabbi Eleazar ben Perata said, “Come and see how great is the power of an evil tongue! From where do we know [its power]? From the spies, because if this is what happens to those who bring an evil report against wood and stones, how much more will it happen to one who brings an evil report against his neighbor!”
How does it follow? Perhaps it is as explained by Rabbi Hanina ben Papa… who said: “A stark thing did the spies say in that hour, as it is written: ‘For they are stronger than we.’” [The implication being “stronger than God”, since God is with us.] [Arachin 15a]
-Rabbi Yochanan said in the name of Rabbi Meir: The spies began with a true report and then spoke ill, because any piece of slander needs some truth in the beginning to be heard through to the end. [Sotah 35a]

They were affected by their people’s attitude.

When one represents another, he is affected by the mindset of that other. Israel was distrustful of Hashem, and this colored the spies’ judgment.

Today we are just about to begin the greatest event in history and many of you are scared to move forward. We shared with you last week about the Second Great Exodus that is going to take place in the very near future. But first, there must be another great captivity, which means that many millions in the 12 tribes of Israel are about to die.

The Lord Will Restore Israel

Eze 20:33  As I live, says the Lord Jehovah, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, I will reign over you.

Eze 20:34  And I will bring you out from the people, and I will gather you out of the lands in which you are scattered among them, with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured out.

Eze 20:35  And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face.

Eze 20:36  Just as I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, says the Lord Jehovah.

Eze 20:37  And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.

Eze 20:38  And I will purge out from among you the rebels and those who sin against Me. I will bring them out from the land where they reside, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.

Eze 20:39  And you, O house of Israel, so says the Lord Jehovah: Every man go and serve his idols, and do so from now on if you will not listen to Me. But never again defile My holy name with your gifts and with your idols.

Brethren these are very strong words to ponder. And when you consider just who that rod is that you will pass under….

Isa 10:3  And what will you do in the day of judgment and in destruction, of ruin when it comes from afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you leave your glory?

Isa 10:4  Surely they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. In all this His hand is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

Judgment on Arrogant Assyria

Isa 10:5  Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger!And the staff in their hand is My fury.

Isa 10:6  I will send him against an ungodly nation, and against the people of My wrath. I will command him to take the plunder, and to strip off the spoil, and to trample them like the mud of the streets.

Isa 10:7  Yet he does not plan this, nor does his heart think so. For it is in his heart to destroy and cut off not a few nations.

The nations of Israel are about to pass under the Rod of the Assyrians. What this means is that every tenth one is holy or set apart while the other nine are for slaughter.

Isa 13:6  Howl! For the day of Jehovah is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Isa 13:7  Therefore all hands shall be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt;

Isa 13:8  and they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them. They shall be in pain like a woman who travails. They shall be amazed at one another, their faces like flames.

Isa 13:9  Behold, the day of Jehovah comes, cruel and with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land waste; and He shall destroy its sinners out of it.

Isa 13:10  For the stars of the heavens and their constellations shall not give light; the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not reflect its light.

Isa 13:11  And I will visit evil on the world, and their iniquity on the wicked. And I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the pride of tyrants.

Isa 13:12  I will make a man more precious than gold; even a man than the fine gold of Ophir.

I believed it was to begin in 2020. Instead, we were sent COVID. Now the nations of Israel seem to be coming out of the COVID curse as more and more are being vaccinated. The economies are opening up. President Biden has pledged a billion dollars so the rest of the world can get vaccinated and then we can return back to normal. Or the way we were in 2019.

But not one of the 12 tribes of Israel is repenting. No not even one of the states or any of the provinces in any of the 12 tribes are falling on their faces and praying to Yehovah asking for forgiveness and then turning and returning to keeping the Torah. No NOT ONE!

There is no one calling for fasting and prayers at this time.

Brethren, you know these things. I have explained this and much more to you many times now over the past 16 years, through videos, books and endless newsletters. You all know and understand just how few years are left in this 6th Millennial day. You all know.

And you all know what you are being told to do in order to protect yourself and your loved ones from the fury of Yehovah that is coming.

Lev 26:23  And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:24  then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:25  And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

Lev 26:26  When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.

Lev 26:27  And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:28  then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

Lev 26:29  And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.

Isa 26:20  Come, my people, enter into your rooms and shut your doors around you; hide for a little moment, until the fury has passedby.

I have told you many times to look up the Hebrew word for rooms and to compare it to the Kedar in Isaiah 42.

Isa 42:11  Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, the villages where Kedar dwells. Let the dwellers of the rock sing, let them shout from the mountain tops.

Yehovah has called you and brought you to this site and to understand the things we have taught you here at Yehovah brought you here. Yehovah gave you this understanding. He called you to this point to do a work. He has called you and blessed you to be able to help do this end-time work.

So I have to ask you. Why do so many of you sit there with your talent, whether one two or five talents all stuck safely away in your pockets? Why are you not helping us to do this work? Why do many of you waste your time studying things that just do not matter?

I wrote you earlier this year an article “So Now What?”. In it, I told you what I was going to do. I am charging ahead and I will prepare that room, that chamber, that Chedar.

We also just published a video this past week. Aleph Bet Gimel Dalet and Chet. I have not heard any of you comment on it. I think you all should go and watch it if not for the first time then watch it again a second time. You did not get the connections. I think the connections we make in this video are absolutely stunning.

Again I tell you to look up the Hebrew word Chedar in Isaiah 26:20. Here is the Pictograph meaning of the word. Chet Dalet Rosh.

2150) Rdh% (Rdh% HhDR) ac: Surround co: Chamber ab: ?:The surrounding walls of a chamber providing privacy and security. [from: dh – as surrounded by walls with a door]

V) Rdh% (Rdh% Hh-DR) – Surround: To encircle. [freq. 1] (vf: Paal) |kjv: enter| {H2314}

Nm) Rdh% (Rdh% Hh-DR) – Chamber: A place surrounded by walls. An inner place as hidden or secret. [freq. 38] |kjv: chamber, inner, inward, innermost, parlour, south, within| {H2315}

Mat 13:34  Jesus spoke all these things to the crowds in parables, and He did not speak to them without a parable,

Mat 13:35  so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”

I wonder at times why I bother to share these things with you all. And then I am reminded of the things I said to Yehovah way back in 2005 when I said here I am, send me, to speak about the Jubilee Cycles. When I read the rest of the verse in Isaiah I am saddened to know these things are coming true. People get excited but will not change and will not return to Yehovah and be healed. Maybe this is why so few step forward and help to do this work. They have faith but no works.

Isa 6:8  And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, Here am I; send me!

Isa 6:9  And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know.

Isa 6:10  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed.

Isa 6:11  Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation,

Isa 6:12  and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Isa 6:13  But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return and be consumed like the terebinth and like the oak being felled, yet has its stump; the holy seed is its stump.

Israel did not believe Yehovah would do mighty works for them so that they could have entered the land two years after the Exodus. And because of that, they had to spend the next 40 years waiting in the wilderness for that whole generation to die.

You have a decision to make. You get to choose which way you will go. Or you can come up with all sorts of excuses and logical reasons for going back to Egypt. But they all come down to one explanaition. You have no faith in Yehovah.

I have no clue how this is all going to work out. I do know how little time it left. And I read the scriptures the same as you can. I am choosing to use the knowledge the scriptures has given us and to help be part of preparing a people that have a job to do. And at the same time get myself and my family out of the line of fire that is soon going to begin.

    Couple questions comments

    Moses was 80 at the burning bush and 120 when he died, how does the Exodus plagues, one year in the desert for Tabernacle, and 40 year sentence all fit?

    Also, why does sightedmoon predict war and devastation by 2020 but what we got was covid? Was our punishment relented? Maybe we had a good leader at that time?

    You can be very harsh in your newsletter implying the people who read it are in disobedience. Why don’t you just speak to the specific group or person who is out of line and not lump us all together? Not all of us will be in these concentration camps you speak of. Not all of us will die the death of the wicked. Not all of us are ignorant and stupid. Not all of us are in the same circumstances. Shalom

    • Joseph F Dumond

      Shabbat Shalom Robert, to answer your first question about Moses being 120 year old, we have this article for you to consider.
      In brief, the Moses was 80 at the Exodus and then two years after the Exodus the curse begins. It did not start the day that Yehovah issued the curse as 5 months had already passed. No, the curse began the following Aviv. The article should help you to understand this better.

      As to sightedmoons prediction of war in 2020. I have not had an angel come and speak to me nor Yehovah tell me in a dream or vision what is to come. All I have is the very same thing that every one else has and that is the Bible. So I quote it in all the things I say. If I am wrong then I have misquoted the word. But the 4th curse of Lev 26 states the following.

      Lev 26:23 And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me,
      Lev 26:24 then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins.
      Lev 26:25 And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
      Lev 26:26 When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.

      YOU will notice the first part of this curse is the sword followed by the second part of plague and then the third part of famine. In the curse that follows this one the famine increases to the point where cannibalism takes over.

      So based on that verse I fully expected war to come first. These same three curses Yehovah cave to David and asked him to choose one for his punishment. David chose the plague.

      So although the war did not break out in 2020 as we expected it. the Plague came in 2020 the very year we had been warning you about since 2005. And the fighting between the left and the right, the black and the white, the conservative and the liberal all broke out MAy 31st 2020. So we got the year and the very day things would happen. We did not get the order they would come right. But war is still coming. And the destruction of Israel has not changed. So I must still shout out that warning.

      And as to the final point you make about me going directly to the people involved. Some I have spoken with privately and others have heard the message before. But we have new people joining us and we have others getting sucked into the propaganda that is out there. So a general newsletter written to all is appropriate. One of the most responded to newsletter was the one about vaccines all of them condemning me for having another opinion that did not line up with them.
      If the gloves fit we must convict. But if the things I say do not apply to you then they do not apply. But some brethren most assuredly will be concentration camps. And some brethren who are obedient will die. Remember the hairs in the corner of Ezekiels talit, that are taken out and cast into the fire. And yes unfortunately some of the brethren are ignorant and foolish. And it is to each of these and others that I write. But for those who are wise, and for those who obey Yehovah and do not mix His truths with falsehood and lies, then it does not apply to them. Correct.

      And yes sometimes I am harsh. Some people are just plain stubborn and do not take the gentle prod so a harder one is then applied. It is done so that all will come to be in the Kingdom and none left behind. I do what I can and never ever wanted to be in this position of teaching others. But here I am.

      Deuteronomy 2:14 Now the time that it took for us to come from Kadesh-barnea, until we crossed over the brook Zered, was thirty-eight years; until all the generation of the men of war perished from within the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them.

    Robert from Paul Joseph is only telling you what YAHOVAH has put in play it is His way of doing it it is His words that are telling us me you what is coming from Yah and to be doing it His way not the way we think shabbat shalom Paul

  3. cosmos1947

    As you, J.Dumond, confessed: “We did not get the order they would come right. But war is still coming. And the destruction of Israel has not changed.”
    A/ from ‘cosmos1947’. Indeed to illustrate your point: prophetic Scripture often does NOT follow strict time sequences. Using only one such instance: you often quote Levit. 26:21-33 which outlines the Tribulation punishments for disobediences. Then we read the completely out-of-context future Kingdom-Age blessings for humility in Levit. 26:34-35 and 40-45. That is mixed up with more irrational (FEAR-based), essentially self-punishment, Tribulation [Levit. 26:36-37] which is also part of the 4th. curse .

    J.D. again: “I have not had an angel come and speak to me nor Yehovah tell me in a dream or vision what is to come.”
    B/. Neither do you have a bevy of articulate, supportive ‘second witnesses’ ready and able to fend off the veritable ‘army’ of research-willing readers who apparently overload your inboxes. Undermining you hard-won credibility: that resented overload of negativity requires you, as the overwhelmed ‘sole trader’, to instantly DELETE their salient cool-headed commentary.
    So sad that you cannot organise a 2021 C.E. equivalent to Jethro’s administration solution for overwhelmed ‘sole-trader’ Moses [Exodus 18:17-26.] Nor can you organise a panel of “wise men” [1Corin.6:5] capable of ameliorating highly-contentious issues like ‘vaccine NON-safety’! As a result your worthy outreach is embarrassingly nobbled and an unnecessary disenfranchisement [echoing John 16:2] for us ‘critical-thinkers’.

    C/. Recently you encouraged readers to enact a ‘High Priestly’ role, yet you routinely castigate readers for their ‘non-compliance to Torah’. How about you, J.D., acknowledge for the first time, the Torah-CENTRALITY of discerning (socially, politically and medically) between ‘the clean and the unclean’! That is [within time and capability balances], we should first study and then DECLARE judgements re the admittedly-confusing ‘tree of good and evil knowledge’ [Gen.2:17]…. as did the dutiful Levitical priests [Levit. ch.11 and ch.13].

    The likely result of allowing for these concepts A/, B/, C/ above? Your nowadays-‘STINKIN’ in-box would then smell much sweeter. Currently, you’re trying to get ‘sweet water’ [readership harmony] from a ‘bitter well’ [deleted commentators] [James 3:11].
    But why should you, a reluctant yet high-profile ‘teacher’, bother with this low-life ‘cosmos1947’ guy who started his international lecturing/administration career in the 1960s?

  4. Zimmermann

    Robert, Tzadik brother :
    As royal family we need to identify with our bretheren as Yeshoua has done in Atonement and prophete to call to Teshuva/Repentance.
    Joseph has this heart he prepare the way to come back to OBEDIENCE to all the Family (the 12 tribes and the grafted in and the goym and the prostitute whom will devance many of us/pharisee in the Kindom…)
    Be blessed in your desire to understand

  5. Stephen

    Shalom and thank you for being able to be a servant of YAH and resist all the things it could bring.
