Report From Brother Aike
November 27, 2019
Shalom Sightedmoon brothers and sisters in YHVH,
Brother Aike here, reporting from the Philippines, the islands of the sea.
Day in day out, we just keep pounding the hammer on the wall until it breaks. Yeah, that’s what we do here in our ministry in the Philippines. In line with the Torah restoration movement here. You will never know it, I guess until you will come here and join us in this ripe mission field. YHVH Spirit is at work here in a very amazing way. I never thought of this before that this is going to be so real that YHVH Spirit will move people even the President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte to act in favor in bringing the Torah practice to the masses of Filipinos. Through the official appointment of our dear friend and brother, Bishop Butch Belgica, as the only Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs ( PARA), just recently. The agenda is to teach Filipinos who has a population of 90 million Catholics and 15 million protestants, the Feast of YHVH beginning with the Friday night weekly Shabbat celebration.
Take a look a this official manual that Bishop Belgica had developed who then was approved by President Duterte.
By the power vested on Bishop Belgica through the office of PARA, the different government agencies need to comply to this directive. As envisioned by Bishop Belgica, every regions in the Philippines will be visited soon ( 12 regions) and will instruct the Governors and Mayors in each region to bring in 2 representative from each Sitios in every Barangay ( small villages) by the hundreds. They will be taught how to observe the weekly Friday night shabbat gatherings. See the training manual below;
The feasts of Leviticus 23 will also going to be taught. Wow, what a big move by the Spirit of YHVH ELOHYM ! Now we can go around every denominational ministerial groups in the Philippines and tell them about the Sabbath and Holy days of Leviticus 23, without fear and intimidation because we are given authority by the office of the President of the Philippines.
Though this is going to take much work, this is so exciting especially for us who have been working hard in the past years in teaching others, the Commandments of the GOD of ISRAEL. President Duterte by YHVH’s will still be going to our president in the next 3 more years. May YHVH through Yeshua gave him more strength and wisdom. May President Duterte be sorrounded by godly advisers such as the current Presidential Anti – Corruption Commission (PACC) chairman, Greco Belgica, who is the son of Bishop Butch Belgica. As well the director of Anti Red Tape Authority Attorney Jeremiah Belgica, also a son of Bishop Belgica.
The good thing here is Bishop Belgica has appointed me as one of the duly representative of PARA, designated to lecture the different protestant ministerial groups in 12 different regions nationwide. This work is projected within 3 years to reach the full masses of filipino believers nationwide and even those who are working abroad.
As you know Bishop Belgica has been very supportive of Joseph Dumond’s conference in the Philippines both in 2015 and 2018.
Bishop Belgica share the same convictions on the importance of the feasts of Leviticus 23 and their prophetic significance.
This is indeed very good news for all of us. As most of the western world are ignoring YHVH Torah, the Philippines is being led to be a nation under YHVH mercy and love and direction. Our humble nation will be honored because of the greatness of our YHVH ELOHYM. In line of this blessing, after much communications with different groups, I will be travelling to several key cities in the Visayas and Mindanao Islands. This time I will be teaching Leviticus 23 direct to the point. No more Circumventing, as we did in the past. Previously, before we ever be going to teach about the feasts of Leviticus 23, we shared a lot of different topics as eye openers. Such as, the fundamentals of Hebrew language, idioms, mistranslated in the Scriptures. The difference between the Hebrew versus the Greek mindset, hermeneutics etc. Now, we’re going to have the confidence to teach pastors and christians the Feasts of Leviticus 23 straight to their faces without fear and intimidation, because the higher authorities in the Philippine government is backing us up. Praise our Great ABBA father YHVH ELOHYM.
Just to report to you about our latest accomplishment in the field. The guy beside me on my left is Pastor Larry De Guzman. I met him only through Facebook sometime in the month of May. I visited his congregation. We get along with each other nicely so fast. Their congregation named Yeshua HaMashiyach Congregation has just received a fresh revelation from YHVH. They were told to study the Hebraic foundations of their faith. After a few months of communicating. Finally they have their first ever Feast of Trumpets celebration last September 2019 with a successful Jericho march around the city by blowing the shofars as we were encircling the city. Wow !
Watch the video of what took place here on this link: https://youtu.be/6ccWzR9RS7k
In the meantime, we are busy looking for our potential Goshen like place of refuge, for the torah keepers located in Manila the biggest city in the Philippines. There has to be one. We believe we found it. Together with our ministry partners and other torah keepers, a couple of weeks ago, we venture into the most remotest jungle in the western part of Quezon province. It’s so remote that we have to pass by across 15 rivers just to get to the place. The place is very difficult to access via four wheel vehicles but through pump boat its possible . Here are some of the pictures of our spying the land recognizance tour in our potential place of refuge.
We found the only village composed of born again christians. Through the effort of my christian evangelist friend Brother Dale ( the one with the long beard in the pictures above). Brother Dale has been working in this village since 5 years ago, most the local villagers here became believers because of him. There are only very few families now living in this Island village. Due to the far away distance and no electricity and no school available for the children. Accordingly most villagers here are leaving their places and selling their lands for a very cheap price, which is of course advantageous for us. Our team all the four of us will be returning to this Island village to look for the most fertile lands available for our future use. As you can see in the above pictures, there is a huge supply of potable water, there is a large ricefield, lots of coconuts, and huge mountain sides. Almost perfect for goshen. I believe this is the one. We shall return soon. Joseph Dumond and I are intending to put up a legitimate non governmental, non profit organization for our end time preparation and needs. As per Joseph Dumond predictions, millions from the scattered tribes of Israel will seek refuge in the Islands of the Philippines starting in the Year 2020 to 2030. The time to prepare is now or never.
This is not a simple project. This requires a lot of money and resources. I don’t know where the finance will be coming from but I believed by faith that YHVH will provide all that we ever need in Goshen. We just need to be obedient along the way.
I strongly encourage dear readers of sigthtedmoon end time prophetic ministry, to consider supporting this work financially more than ever before. The time is at hand. The harvest are plenteous. It’s like shooting fishes with a barrel. We don’t miss a shot. It’s all going to be worth it in the end. But now, we have to till the ground, plow the vineyard even more. YHVH is so gracious, He will notice every penny that you put in with your heart in it. We will see you soon in our Goshen !
Yeshua’s bondservant of YAH
I love Brother Aike dearly but I am not convinced we need to find a remote place to hunker down in. I believe we need to get the people of the Philippines ready for the end time role they are going to play in relationship to the remnant of Israel. We will have more about this below.
Joktan- Where He Went
I have for a some time been trying to trace the heritage of the Philippine people. I know they began with Joktan and they end up in the Philippines. The journeys in between are the places I am having the trouble and I suspect it is due to my lack of language understanding.
So, I am going to put up my meager notes down here in the hope that someone else who speaks Pinoy can take up this project and connect the dots properly. Everyone can leave what they found to help others in the research in our comment section below.
(26-31) Joktan.—“The little one,” as being a younger son. Of the thirteen divisions of his family, few are of any importance, though several of the names are curious from their connection with the Arabic language. The Joktanite country was Arabia Felix, or Yemen, and as the people led a pastoral life without founding cities, the traces of their tribal names are insignificant. Those worth noting are Almodad, because it has the full form of the article, retained as Al in Arabic, but shortened in Hebrew into Ha. Hazarmaveth, “the court of death,” so called because of the unhealthiness of its climate, is now Hadramaut. Abimael means “the father of Mael.” While in Hebrew and Syriac men took the name of their father, in Arabic they often take the name of a son, with Abu or Abi (“father of”) prefixed. Sheba, the region afterwards famous for its commerce and its wealth of spices and precious stones. A Sheba also occurs among the race of Ham (see Genesis 10:7). Opbir: the name, probably, at first of a district of Oman in Arabia, but afterwards given to some port in India or Ceylon, from some fancied similarity. Havilah: some commentators consider that this is the same district as that previously occupied by the Cushites (Genesis 10:7); others argue that the two Havilahs are distinct, and that this is the region called Chawlân, in Northern Yemen. It is, however, certain that the Hamites possessed this country prior to its being occupied by the Joktanites.
10:15-32 The posterity of Canaan were numerous, rich, and pleasantly seated; yet Canaan was under a Divine curse, and not a curse causeless. Those that are under the curse of God, may, perhaps, thrive and prosper in this world; for we cannot know love or hatred, the blessing or the curse, by what is before us, but by what is within us. The curse of God always works really, and always terribly. Perhaps it is a secret curse, a curse to the soul, and does not work so that others can see it; or a slow curse, and does not work soon; but sinners are reserved by it for a day of wrath Canaan here has a better land than either Shem or Japheth, and yet they have a better lot, for they inherit the blessing. Abram and his seed, God’s covenant people, descended from Eber, and from him were called Hebrews. How much better it is to be like Eber, the father of a family of saints and honest men, than the father of a family of hunters after power, worldly wealth, or vanities. Goodness is true greatness.
The thirteen tribes of the Joctanites or primitive Arabs are enumerated here in Genesis 10:26-29.
(58) Almodad is usually referred to Yemen. The first syllable may be the Arabic article. Mudad is the name of one celebrated in Arab story as the stepfather of Ishmael and chief of the Jurhum tribe of Joctanites. The Alloumaio?tai of Ptolemy belonged to the interior of Arabia Felix.
(59) Sheleph is traced in the Salapeenoi of Ptolemy (vi. 7), belonging to the interior.
(60) Hazarmaveth gives name to a district on the Indian Ocean, abounding in spices, now called Hadramaut. This tribe is the Chatramitae of Greek writers.
(61) Jerah occupied a district where are the coast and mountain of the moon, near Hadramaut.
(62) Hadoram is preserved in the tribe called Adamitai Atramitae, placed by Pliny (vi. 28) between the Homerites and the Sachalites on the south coast of Arabia.
(63) Uzal perhaps gave the ancient name of Azal to Sana, the capital of Yemen, a place still celebrated for the manufacture of beautiful stuffs.
(64) Diclah settled possibly in the palm-bearing region of the Minaei in Hejaz.
(65) Obal is otherwise unknown.
(66) Abimael is equally obscure. Bochart supposes there is a trace of the name in ????? Mali, a place in Arabia Aromatifera.
(67) Sheba is the progenitor of the Sabaei in Arabia Felix, celebrated for spices, gold, and precious stones, and noted for the prosperity arising from traffic in these commodities. A queen of Sheba visited Solomon. The dominant family among the Sabaeans was that of Himjar, from whom the Himjarites (Homeritae) of a later period descended.
(68) Ophir gave name to a country celebrated for gold, precious stones, and almug wood, which seems to have lain on the south side of Arabia, where these products may be found. What kind of tree the almug is has not been clearly ascertained. Some suppose it to be the sandal wood which grows in Persia and India; others, a species of pine. If this wood was not native, it may have been imported from more distant countries to Ophir, which was evidently a great emporium. Others, however, have supposed Ophir to be in India, or Eastern Africa. The chief argument for a more distant locality arises from the supposed three years’ voyage to it from Ezion-geber, and the products obtained in the country so reached. But the three years’ voyage 1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21 seems to be in reality to Tarshish, a very different region.
(69) Havilah here is the founder of a Joctanite tribe of Arabs, and therefore his territory must be sought somewhere in the extensive country which was occupied by these wandering tribes. A trace of the name is probably preserved in Khawlan, a district lying in the northwest of Yemen, between Sana and Mecca, though the tribe may have originally settled or extended further north.
(70) Jobab has been compared with the Io?baritai of Ptolemy (vi. 7). Bochart finds the name in the Arabic: yobab, a desert.
25. Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided—After the flood (Ge 11:10-16) the descendants of Noah settled at pleasure and enjoyed the produce of the undivided soil. But according to divine instruction, made probably through Eber, who seems to have been distinguished for piety or a prophetic character, the earth was divided and his son’s name, “Peleg,” was given in memory of that event (see De 32:8; Ac 17:26).
Almodad and the rest of Joktan’s sons here mentioned, come either,
1. The various nations of India, as most think; or rather,
2. The several people that live in the innermost parts of Arabia, who profess themselves the posterity of Joktan, and have a city near Mecca called Jectan. And the Homerites, one sort of them, are deduced from him by divers writers.
And Joktan begat Almodad,…. And twelve more mentioned later: the Arabic writers (o) say be had thirty one sons by one woman, but all, excepting two, left Arabia, and settled in India; the Targum of Jonathan adds,”who measured the earth with ropes,”as if he was the first inventor and practiser of geometry: from him are thought to spring the Allumaeotae, a people whom Ptolemy (p) places in Arabia Felix, called so by the Greeks, instead of Almodaei: Mr. Broughton (q) sets Eldimaei over against this man’s name, as if they were a people that sprung from him; whereas this word is wrongly put in Ptolemy (r) for Elymaeans, as it is in the Greek text, a people joining to the Persians:
and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah: to the first of these, Sheleph, the Targum of Jonathan adds,”who drew out the water of the rivers;”his people are supposed by Bochart (s), to be the Alapeni of Ptolemy (t), which should be read Salapeni, who were, he says, more remote from the rest, almost as far as the neck of Arabia, and not far from the spring of the river Betius. The next son, Hazarmaveth, or Hasermoth, as in the Vulgate Latin, is thought to give name to a people in Arabia, called by Pliny (u) Chatramotitae, and by Ptolemy Cathramonitae, whose country, Strabo says (w), produces myrrh; according to Ptolemy (x) they reached from the mountain Climax to the Sabaeans, among whom were a people, called, by Pliny (y), Atramitae, who inhabited a place of the same name, and which Theophrastus calls Adramyta, which comes nearer the name of this man, and signifies the court or country of death: and in those parts might be places so called, partly from the unwholesomeness of the air, being thick and foggy, and partly from the frankincense which grew there, which was fatal to those that gathered it, and therefore only the king’s slaves, and such as were condemned to die, were employed in it, as Bochart (z) has observed from Arrianus; as also because of the multitude of serpents, with which those odoriferous countries abounded, as the same writer relates from Agatharcides and Pliny. The next son of Joktan is Jerah, which signifies the moon, as Hilal does in Arabic; and Alilat with the Arabians, according to Herodotus (a), is “Urania”, or the moon; hence Bochart (b) thinks, that the Jeracheans, the posterity of Jerah, are the Alilaeans of Diodorus Siculus (c), and others, a people of the Arabs; and the Arabic geographer, as he observes, makes mention of a people near Mecca called Bene Hilal, or the children of Jerah; and he is of opinion that the island Hieracon, which the Greeks call the island of the Hawks placed by Ptolemy (d), in Arabia Felix, adjoining to the country which lies upon the Arabian Gulf, is no other than the island of the Jeracheans, the posterity of this man: the Arabs (e) speak of a son of Joktan or Cahtan, they call Jareb, who succeeded his father, which perhaps may be a corruption of Jerah; and another, called by them Jorham.

And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
26. Hazarmaveth] This name is very probably reproduced in the district of S. E. Arabia called the ?adramaut.
Verses 26-30. – And Joktan begat Almodad. Usually said to be Yemen. And Sheleph. The Salapenoi of Ptolemy, belonging to the interior of Arabia. And Hazarmaveth. Hadramaut, southeast of Arabia (Bochart, Michaelis). And Jerah. Contiguous to Hadramaut. And Hadoram. Adramitae of Ptolemy, or the Atramitae of Pliny (Bochart) And Uzal. Awzal, the capital of Yemen (Bochart). And Diklah. The palm-bearing region of Arabia Felix (Bochart); a tribe between the mouth of the Tiber and the Persian Gulf (Michaelis). And Obal, and Abimael, whose settlements are not known. And Sheba. Vide supra, ver. 7. And Ophir. In Arabia; probably in Oman, on the Persian Gulf (Michaelis, Rosenmüller, Kalisch, Keil), though it has also been located in India (Josephus, Vitringa, Gesenius, Delitzsch). The gold of Ophir celebrated (1 Kings 9:27, 28; 2 Chronicles 9:10, 13, 21). And Havilah. The Chaulan in Arabia Felix, but vide supra, ver. 7. And Jobab. The Jobabitae of Ptolemy, near the Indian Sea (Michaelis, Rosenmüller); but more probably a tribe in Arabia Deserta if Jobab – Arabic jebab, a desert (Bochart, Gesenius, Kalisch). All these were the sons of Joktan. And their dwelling was from Mesha. The seaport of Muza (Bochart); Messene, at the mouth of the Tigris (Michaelis, Rosenmüller, Kalisch). As thou goest into Zephar. Zafar or Dhafari, on the coast of the Hadramut. The difficulty of identifying a seaport town with a mountain is got over (Kalisch) by reading “to the” instead of a mount of the east – the thunderous range of hills in the vicinity.
Among the descendants of Arphaxad, Eber’s eldest son received the name of Peleg, because in his days the earth, i.e., the population of the earth, was divided, in consequence of the building of the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:8). His brother Joktan is called Kachtan by the Arabians, and is regarded as the father of all the primitive tribes of Arabia. The names of his sons are given in Genesis 10:26-29. There are thirteen of them, some of which are still retained in places and districts of Arabia, whilst others are not yet discovered, or are entirely extinct. Nothing certain has been ascertained about Almodad, Jerah, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, and Jobab. Of the rest, Sheleph is identical with Salif or Sulaf (in Ptl. 6, 7, ??????????), an old Arabian tribe, also a district of Yemen. Hazarmaveth (i.e., forecourt of death) is the Arabian Hadhramaut in South-eastern Arabia on the Indian Ocean, whose name Jauhari is derived from the unhealthiness of the climate. Hadoram: the ??????????? of Ptol. 6, 7, Atramitae of Plin. 6, 28, on the southern coast of Arabia. Uzal: one of the most important towns of Yemen, south-west of Mareb. Sheba: the Sabaeans, with the capital Saba or Mareb, Mariaba regia (Plin.), whose connection with the Cushite (Genesis 10:7) and Abrahamite Sabaeans (Genesis 25:3) is quite in obscurity. Ophir has not yet been discovered in Arabia; it is probably to be sought on the Persian Gulf, even if the Ophir of Solomon was not situated there. Havilah appears to answer to Chaulaw of Edrisi, a district between Sanaa and Mecca. But this district, which lies in the heart of Yemen, does not fit the account in 1 Samuel 15:7, nor the statement in Genesis 25:18, that Havilah formed the boundary of the territory of the Ishmaelites. These two passages point rather to ???????????, a place on the border of Arabia Petraea towards Yemen, between the Nabataeans and Hagrites, which Strabo describes as habitable.
And she bare him Zimran
That Keturah should bear children who probably, was a young woman, is not strange; but that Abraham, whose body forty years before this was dead should now have any bore to him, may seem difficult to account for, and only can be attributed to the fresh vigour his body was endued with at the generation of Isaac; and which still continued for the fulfilment of the promise to him of the multiplication of his seed. But if the notion of a late learned bishop F5 is right, there will be no need to have recourse to any thing extraordinary; which is, that Abraham took Keturah for his concubine, about twenty years after his marriage with Sarah, she being barren, and long before he took Hagar; though not mentioned till after the death of Sarah, that the thread of the history might not be broken in upon; and there are various things which make it probable, as that she is called his concubine, ( 1 Chronicles 1:32 ) , which one would think she should not be, if married to him after the death of Sarah, and when he had no other wife, and seeing before he died he had great grandchildren by her, and the children of her are reckoned down to the third generation; whereas there are only mention of two generations of Hagar, as in ( Genesis 25:1-4 Genesis 25:12-16 ) ; and therefore seems to have been taken by him before Hagar, and even when he was in Haran, and the children by her are thought to be the souls gotten there; nor does it seem very probable that he should take a wife after the death of Sarah, when he was one hundred and forty years of age, and was reckoned an old man forty years before this; and Dr. Lightfoot F6 is of opinion, that Abraham married her long before Isaac’s marriage, or Sarah’s death; and if this was the case, the difficulty of accounting for Abraham’s fitness for generation vanishes. The first son of Keturah, born to him, was called Zimran, from whence came the Zamareni, a people in Arabia Felix mentioned by Pliny F7; and hereabout the sons of Keturah settled, being sent by Abraham into the east country, even into Arabia, which lay east of the place where he then was; and very probably Zabram; or it may be rather Zamram, a royal city in the country of the Cinaedocolpites, a part of Arabia Felix, as placed by Ptolemy F8, may have its name from this man: five more of Abraham’s sons by Keturah follow,
and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah:
some think that the first of these is the same with Cahtan, whom the Arabs call the father of their nation; but that Cahtan rather seems to be Joktan the son of Eber, see ( Genesis 10:25 ) . Philostorgius F9 speaks of a nation in his time, called Homerites, who were a people that sprung from Keturah, and inhabited Arabia Felix, and who used circumcision on the eighth day: and Bishop Patrick observes from Theophanes, a chronologer of the ninth century, that the Homerites, who lived in the interior parts of Arabia, descended from Jectan, which he conjectures should be read Jocshan, though perhaps he is no other than the Joktan before mentioned. From Medan and Midian sprung the Midianites, so often mentioned in Scripture; their posterity seem to be confounded together, for the same people are called Medanites and Midianites, ( Genesis 37:28 Genesis 37:36 ) ; from these men the towns in Arabia might have their names, as the Modiana and Madiana of Ptolemy F11: as for Ishbak, there is no tracing of his name anywhere, unless, as Bishop Patrick observes, some footsteps of it are to be found in Bacascami, a town of the Zamareni, who descended from his brother Zimran, and in the people Backliltae, both mentioned by Pliny F12; though Junius think that Scabiosa Laodicea, in Laodicene of Syria, has its name from him; which seems not likely. The name of Shuah or Shuach may be traced in Socacia, Soaca, and Socheher, cities placed by Ptolemy F13 in Arabia Felix: though some think the posterity of this man are those whom the geographers call Sauchites, Sauchaeans, and Saccaeans, who settled in Arabia Deserta, and from whom Bildad the Shuhite, ( Job 2:11 ) , descended; which is not improbable. But others have been of opinion, that the town of Suez, which Pliny calls Suaza, had its name from this Shuah, situate at the extremity of the Red sea F14.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
According to the Bible, the father of the Arabs was Ishmael, Abraham’s son by his wife’s Egyptian maidservant Hagar. The Arab Nation is recorded on the Bible Timeline with World History starting around 1004 BC. Ishmael and his mother were sent away at the request of Sarah after she caught the young Ishmael mocking his brother Isaac. Ishmael’s sons included Nebaioth, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedema . Ishmael and his family settled in the area of “Havilah to Shur”. Havilah’s possible location is the Hijaz Mountains on the coast of the Red Sea, and Shur is on the northeastern border of Egypt.
The 12 sons of Ishmael multiplied and formed their own tribes. Kedar, one of his sons, is said to be an ancestor of the prophet Muhammed. They were the famous Kedarites (Qedarites) mentioned in the stele of the Neo-Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser III as one of the Arab nations/tribes that paid him tribute. Queen Zabibe, ruler of the Kedarites, was one of Tiglath-Pileser’s vassals during his reign. Queen Zabibe was succeeded by another queen, Samsi, who rebelled against Tiglath-Pileser. She was defeated by the Assyrian king and forced to pay tribute as a result of her rebellion.
The inscription of Tiglath-Pileser mentions the tribes who were descendants of the sons of Ishmael, such as Massa’, Tema’, and Adbeel tribes. The nomadic Sabaeans, as well as the tribe of Ephah (a son of Keturah), were also included. The inscription of Sargon II of Assyria mentions the conquest of Thamud people, who lived in central Arabia.
The Arab tribes were under the Assyrian rule until the empire’s decline. Sennacherib and Ashurbanipal were two of the last Assyrian kings who fought against the Arabs during the height of the Neo-Assyrian empire. Other tribes who lived in the Arabian peninsula during that time include the Dedanites (son of Jokshan), Minaeans, Gerrhans, and possibly Hadhramis (Hazarmaveth, son of Joktan; Genesis 10:26).References:

The End Time Role of the Philippines
In 2018 I wrote about where do we flee in these last days. Isaiah tells us all the places the remnant of Israel will be brought back from and one of those places is the Coastlands.
Isaiah 11:11 And it shall be in that day, the Lord shall again set His hand, the second time, to recover the remnant of His people that remains, from Assyria and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Persia, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the coasts of the sea.
We went on in our article Where Do We Flee, to show you how those coasts of the sea were at the ends of the earth and at the corner of the earth. We also then showed you how the only Christian nation in all of Asia was the Philippines, which are at the ends of the earth.
As I watch what is going on in the Philippines, I am amazed to see the hand of Yehovah all over it. Here is a recent news item you may not have seen.
Philippines ranks as third best country for investment
Updated July 10, 2019, 1:00 PM
By Dennis Legaspi
The Philippines landed as the third best country in the world to invest in or do business for 2019, this according to the CEOWORLD magazine. It came after Malaysia in first place and Poland which took silver. Indonesia (No. 4) and Australia (No. 5) completed the top five among 67 countries.
The rankings were based on a survey and statistical data on 11 different factors including corruption, freedom (personal, trade, and monetary), workforce, investor protection, infrastructure, taxes, quality of life, red tape, and technological readiness. Each factor was equally weighted and classified under the general categories of Economic Stability, Government Policies, Skilled Labour Force, Institutional Framework, Education and Research, Market Potential, and Trade Openness.
The Philippines ranked first in Skilled Labour Force (85 points) and Institutional Framework (85 points). It tied at 8th in Economic Stability (78pts), tied at 15th in Government Policies (70 points), tied at 15th for Education and Research (68 points), tied for 22nd for Market Potential (60 points), and tied for 10th for Trade Openness (73pts). The country received the same score as the US in Labour Force. She also tied Turkey and Saudi Arabia in the Institutional Framework.
It is worth noting that Singapore placed 6th and Thailand made it to 10th place.

Each year, CEOWORLD magazine ranks the world based on a variety of categories ranging from the world’s richest people to the best universities, top companies, and top executives.
The Philippine people are being readied for a very special purpose in these last days. They have a role to play in the end times. Lets read Isaiah 60 to learn what Yehovah is calling them to do.
The Future Glory of Israel
Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Jehovah has risen on you.
Isa 60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you.
Isa 60:3 And the nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawning.
Isa 60:4 Lift up your eyes all around, and see. All of them gather themselves; they come to you. Your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Isa 60:5 Then you shall fear and become bright, and your heart shall throb and swell for joy; because the abundance of the sea shall turn to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.
Isa 60:6 A host of camels shall cover you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. All of them from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall proclaim the praises of Jehovah.
This is talking about the remnant of Israel after they have gone through the severe darkness now covering the entire world. Israel will shine bright and the world wealth of the nations will be brought to it. But notice that all of Sheba will come. Not some, not just a few, but all of Sheba. Again in our article we showed you that Sheba was one of the children of Joktan, the founder of the Philippine people.
Look at Psalm 72
Psalms 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Sheba and Seba or is that Cebu and all of the people will come baring gifts in the same way the Magi brought gifts two years after the Messiah was born. This is amazing to read. All of the People of the Philippines will come and as we continue to read Isaiah 60, they come by air and they come by ship.
Isa 60:7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you; the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you. They shall come up on My altar pleasing Me, and I will glorify the house of My glory.
Isa 60:8 Who are these who fly like a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?
Isa 60:9 Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of Jehovah your God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified you.
This word to wait for is;
1) to wait, look for, hope, expect
1a) (Qal) waiting (participle)
1b1) to wait or look eagerly for
1b2) to lie in wait for
1b3) to wait for, linger for
2) to collect, bind together
2a) (Niphal) to be collected
The Philippines is eagerly looking for Yehovah in anticipation. They are expecting Him and know when to be looking for Him. They are not asleep. This can only happen by reading their bibles and having Yehovah open their understanding to the many truths revealed in the prophecies about His return.
The people of the Philippines are descended from Joktan the son of Eber, which makes them also Hebrews. But they are not the of the 12 tribes of Israel although some may be through intermarriage. The Philipine people could also be those who build up the walls of Jerusalem. They must know where the Temple was in order to rebuild the walls.
Isa 60:10 And the sons of strangers will build up your walls, and their kings will serve you; for in My wrath I struck you, but in My favor I had mercy on you.
Isa 60:11 Therefore your gates will always be open; they will not be shut day nor night, to bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their kings may be led.
Isa 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you will perish. Yes, those nations will be completely wasted.
Isa 60:13 The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; and I will make the place of My feet glorious.
Many talk about the rebuilding of the third temple. Here Yehovah is talking about His Glorious House being rebuilt. And we have already seen who some of the people are who are rebuilding the walls.
Isa 60:14 Also the sons of your afflicters shall come bowing to you; and all your despisers will bow down at the soles of your feet. And they will call you, The city of Jehovah, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Isa 60:15 Instead of being forsaken and hated, so that no one passes through, I will make you for everlasting majesty, a joy of many generations.
Isa 60:16 You will also suck the milk of nations, and suck the breast of kings; and you will know that I Jehovah am your Savior and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
Isa 60:17 For bronze I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver; and for wood I will bring bronze, and for stones, iron. I will also make your overseers to be peace, and your rulers to be righteousness.
Isa 60:18 Violence will no more be heard in your land, wasting nor ruin within your borders; but you will call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.
Isa 60:19 The sun will no more be your light by day; nor the brightness of the moon give light to you; but Jehovah will be to you for everlasting light, and your God your glory.
Isa 60:20 Your sun will no more go down, nor your moon withdraw; for Jehovah will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended.
This part about the sun not being our light is explained in Revelation. This is the start of the 8th Millennium and the wedding of the bride to our Groom.
Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
Rev 21:24 And the nations of those who are saved will walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
Rev 21:25 And its gates may not be shut at all by day, for there shall be no night there.
Rev 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
Isaiah 60 finishes this way.
Isa 60:21 Your people also will all be righteous; they will inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, so that I may be glorified.
Isa 60:22 A little one will become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I Jehovah will hasten it in its time.
The Islands Wait for His Law to come via His Elect
Yehovah is sending someone, His Elect, in whom His soul delights. and the Islands are going to wait for His Law.
Isa 42:1 Behold My Servant, whom I uphold; My Elect, in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit on Him; He shall bring out judgment to the nations.
Isa 42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
Isa 42:3 A bruised reed He shall not break, and a smoking wick He shall not quench; He shall bring out judgment to truth.
Isa 42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged until He has set judgment in the earth; and the coasts shall wait for His Law.
All of this chapter is stunning once you understand to whom Yehovah is speaking. Read it and ask for understanding. Understand it and begin to prepare to fulfill this prophecy in your time.
Isa 42:5 So says Jehovah God, He who created the heavens and stretched them out, spreading out the earth and its offspring; He who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it.
Isa 42:6 I Jehovah have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand, and will keep You, and give You for a covenant of the people, for a Light of the nations;
What is this covenant and how is it that He is going to give you ( who ever that is) as a covenant of the people? And what does it mean to be a Light of the Nations?
Jer 1:5 Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I consecrated you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
Jer 1:6 Then I said, Alas, Lord Jehovah! Behold, I do not know to speak; for I am a boy.
Jer 1:7 But Jehovah said to me, Do not say, I am a boy; for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Jer 1:8 Do not be afraid of their faces; for I am with you to deliver you, says Jehovah.
The Covenant is that same Torah, the Law that the Coastlands, the Isles of the sea, The Philippines wait for looking for it expectantly. Now read what Paul and Barnabus say about being the light to the nations.
Act 13:46 But speaking boldly, Paul and Barnabas said, It was necessary for the Word of God to be spoken to you first. But since indeed you put it far from you and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the nations.
Act 13:47 For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “I have set You to be a light of the nations, for salvation to the end of the earth.”
Act 13:48 And hearing, the nations rejoiced and glorified the Word of the Lord. And as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
Act 13:49 And the Word of the Lord was carried throughout all the country.
What were they doing? They were preaching the Gospel and the Torah to the nations as a light to the Truth. Opening the eyes of those who were blind so that they could now see the truth. Once you have seen the truth you can no longer be blind to it. They were feeding the hungry, those starving to know the truth of the Torah. And they were clothing them in the righteousness of the Torah so that those who learned and obeyed and began to walk this walk were then putting on the white robes of righteousness as told to us in Psalm 119:172
Psa 119:172 My tongue shall speak Your Word, for all Your Commandments are righteousness.
And it this very same type of righteousness that those Saints who are martyred for His name’s sake are given in Revelation.
Rev 6:9 And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held.
Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Until when, Master, holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?
Rev 6:11 And white robes were given to each one of them. And it was said to them that they should rest yet for a little time, until both their fellow servants and their brothers (those about to be killed as they were ) should have their number made complete.
Those of us who going to teach you about the Torah are being sent by Yehovah to be your covenant and your light to the nations and to teach you to be the exact same thing. A light to the nations.
Isa 42:7 to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness out of the prison house.
By the very power of Yehovah they will make those who do not see nor understand to see and understand and teach these truths. They will also help people to come out of the prisons of religion they are now in, where there is no light and only darkness. By the same token they will also heal the blind and raise the dead from the captivity of death which Satan rules over.
Isa 42:8 I am Jehovah; that is My name; and My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images.
Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they happen, I cause you to hear.
Sing to the Lord a New Song
Isa 42:10 Sing to Jehovah a new song; His praise from the end of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and its fullness; coasts and their peoples.
This verse is speaking specifically to you, those of you in the Philippines. You are being told to SING a NEW SONG from the ends of the earth. Let all 7000 islands of the Filipino people sing in unison to the Creator of the Universe on His Sabbaths and on His Feast Days. Let all 100 Million Pinoy sing with love and sincerety and in all humbleness of heart to their Creator as the birds do at the dawning of the day. Yehovah is commanding you all to sing to Him.
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.
Isa 42:12 Give glory to Jehovah and declare His praise in the coastlands.
Everywhere and everyone in the Philippines, in the cities and in the country, in the valleys and on the mountains are to sing to Yehovah. The Feast of Shouting is to sound like a trumpet. So sing as Trumpet so that the whole world will hear you from the ends of the earth. Especially now when the rest of the world is on the brink of total annihilation. Sing as a Trumpet Announcing the coming of the Messiah to rescue this world. SING for the love of Yehovah.
Yehovah goes out on the Feast of Trumpets to war with the world until Satan is locked away on the Day of Atonement. This is for 10 years- the ten days of Awe.
Isa 42:13 Jehovah goes out as a warrior, He stirs up zeal like a man of wars; He shouts, yea, roars; He overcomes His enemies.
Isa 42:14 I have kept silence from forever; I have been still and refrained Myself. Now I will cry like a woman in pangs of labor, I will pant and gasp at once.
Isa 42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their plants. And I will make the rivers coast lands, and I will dry up the pools.
During this time of the Ten Days of Awe the Two witnesses are at work and there is no rain upon the entire earth for 3 1/2 years. Listen to what Yehovah is doing during the final 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. Two things we are told. First Moab is to hide us and then we are to hide while He pours out His fury.
Isa 16:1 Send the lamb to the ruler of the land from the rock of the desert to the mount of the daughter of Zion.
Isa 16:2 For it shall be as a fleeing bird cast out of the nest, the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.
Isa 16:3 Take counsel, do judgment; make your shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; do not betray the fugitive.
Isa 16:4 Let my outcasts dwell with you, Moab; be a shelter to them from the face of the destroyer; for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceases, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.
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 passed by.
Isa 26:21 For behold, Jehovah comes out of His place to punish the people of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also shall reveal her blood, and shall no more cover her dead.
Isa 63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One adorned in His clothing, bending down in His great power? I who speak in righteousness, great to save.
Isa 63:2 Why is Your clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?
Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no man with Me; for I will tread them in My anger and trample them in My fury; and their blood will be sprinkled on My garments, and I will stain all My clothing.
Isa 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.
Isa 63:5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was no one to uphold; therefore My own arm has saved for Me; and My fury upheld Me.
Isa 63:6 And I will tread down the people in My anger, and make them drunk in My fury, and I will pour their juice to the earth.
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way they knew not; I will lead them in paths they have not known; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. I will do these things to them, and not forsake them.
returning now to Isaiah 42 those who go around praying to statues and idols such as that of Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus are warned here now to stop doing that.
Isa 42:17 They are turned back, they are greatly ashamed, those who trust in graven images and who say to the images, You are our gods.
Since Magellan first came to these Islands and brought the Catholic Religion, people have prayed to the statue of Mary and the statue of Joseph and Jesus and other Patron Saints of the Catholic Faith. You have suffered earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding rains, typhoons, volcanic eruptions, mudslides and other catastrophes. In recent years you have seen these calamities growing worse in magnitude and the number of people killed and the amount of infrastructure destroyed. And yet you cling to your statues and continue to pray to them. They cannot save you. It is time to return to the Torah of the Hebrews of whom you are, and to once again worship Yehovah in truth and sincerity with all humbleness of heart.
Israel’s Failure to Hear and See
Isa 42:18 Hear, deaf ones; and blind ones look to see.
Isa 42:19 Who is blind but My servant? Or deaf, as My messenger whom I sent? Who is blind as he who is perfect, and blind as Jehovah’s servant?
Isa 42:20 You see many things, but do not pay attention. Your ears are open, but not any hears.
Isa 42:21 Jehovah is well pleased for His righteousness sake; He will magnify the Law and make it honorable.
Isa 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; all of them snared in holes, and they are hidden in prison-houses; they have been taken, and none delivers them; a prize, and none says, Give back.
Isa 42:23 Who among you will hear this? He will listen and hear for the time to come?
Isa 42:24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to robbers? Did not Jehovah, against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, nor did they obey His Law.
Isa 42:25 So He has poured on him the fury of His anger, and the strength of battle. And it has set him on fire all around, yet he did not know; and it burned him, yet he did not lay it to heart.
Israel, the USA and the UK along with Judah, the nation of the State of Israel and the rest of the 12 tribes of Israel are about to be destroyed for not obeying Yehovah. Listen closely Philippines. The Nations of Israel whom Yehovah has blessed above all other nations has not and does not obey Yehovah in spite of the blessings. He is now calling you to obey for these end times. Those who don’t will also die. Return to the Torah and live and sing praises to Yehovah.
We will soon explain what your role is in these last days.
Yehovah has sent me to the Islands
Listen up Philippines. Pay close attention now. Yehovah has called me from the womb and has made my mouth like a sharp sword. He is making me a light unto the nations and to you. To bring Yehshua, salvation, to you. Listen up to the words of Yehovah.
The Servant of the Lord
Isa 49:1 Listen, O coastlands, to Me; and listen, lend your ear, peoples from afar; Jehovah has called Me from the womb; He has made mention of My name from My mother’s bowels.
Isa 49:2 And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, and made Me a polished shaft. He has hidden Me in His quiver,
Isa 49:3 and said to Me, You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
Isa 49:4 Then I said, I have labored in vain; I have spent My strength for nothing, and in vain; yet surely My judgment is with Jehovah, and My work with My God.
Isa 49:5 And now, says Jehovah who formed Me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob again to Him, Though Israel is not gathered, yet I shall be glorious in the eyes of Jehovah, and My God shall be My strength.
Isa 49:6 And He said, It is but a little thing that You should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to bring back the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You for a light to the nations, to be My salvation to the end of the earth.
This is not speaking about Israel being that light but someone who is going to bring Israel back and who is going to raise up Jacob. Those who are protected during these end times. Read these verses over and over again. They are absolutely stunning the more you think about them. They become even more stunning when you consider what is going on in the Philippines, the Isles of the Sea in the Corner of the earth.
It is a light thing — “It is too little that Thou shouldest,” [Hengstenberg], that is, It is not enough honor to Thee to raise up Jacob and Israel, but I design for Thee more, namely, that Thou shouldest be the means of enlightening the Gentiles (Isa 42:6, Isa 42:7; Isa 60:3).
Here read verse 6 in Tagalog.
(Tagalog AB) Oo, kaniyang sinasabi, Totoong magaan ang bagay na ikaw ay naging aking lingkod upang ibangon ang mga lipi ng Jacob, at isauli ang iningatan ng Israel, ikaw ay aking ibibigay na pinakailaw sa mga Gentil upang ikaw ay maging aking kaligtasan hanggang sa wakas ng lupa.
Now read how others are translating this one verse. And notice what they are saying. This person will raise up and bring back the remnant of Israel. You all know when this is to be done. We at Sightedmoon.com are the only ones showing you when these things are to happen by showing you the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles. NO ONE ELSE IS DOING THIS. Just us here at sightedmoon.com
(BBE) It is not enough for one who is my servant to put the tribes of Jacob again in their place, and to get back those of Israel who have been sent away: my purpose is to give you as a light to the nations, so that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.
(CEV) Now the LORD says to me, “It isn’t enough for you to be merely my servant. You must do more than lead back survivors from the tribes of Israel. I have placed you here as a light for other nations; you must take my saving power to everyone on earth.”
(Darby) —and he saith, It is a small thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel; I have even given thee for a light of the nations, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
(ESV) he says: “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
(GNB) The LORD said to me, “I have a greater task for you, my servant. Not only will you restore to greatness the people of Israel who have survived, but I will also make you a light to the nations—so that all the world may be saved.”
(ISV) he says: “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant, to raise up the tribes of Israel and bring back those of Jacob I have preserved. I’ll also make you as a light to the nations, to be my salvation to the ends of the earth.
(JPS) Yea, He saith: ‘It is too light a thing that thou shouldest be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the offspring of Israel; I will also give thee for a light of the nations, that My salvation may be unto the end of the earth.’
(TLV) So He says, “It is too trifling a thing that You should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and restore the preserved ones of Israel. So I will give You as a light for the nations, that You should be My salvation to the end of the earth.”
(TS2009) and He says, “Shall it be a small matter for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Ya’aqob, and to bring back the preserved ones of Yisra’el And I shall give You as a light to the nations, to be My deliverance to the ends of the earth!”
(WEB) Indeed, he says, “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel? I will also give you as a light to the nations, that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.”
(WEBA) Indeed, he says, “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel? I will also give you as a light to the nations, that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.”
(Webster) And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldst be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation to the end of the earth.
Isa 49:7 So says Jehovah, the Redeemer of Israel, His Holy One, to Him whom man despises, to Him whom the nation hates, the servant of rulers: Kings shall see and arise, rulers also shall worship, because of Jehovah who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, and He shall choose You.
This is all being done not by this servants strength. Yehovah is the Redeemer. Not anyone else. It is all done by the Power of Yehovah.
The Restoration of Israel
Isa 49:8 So says Jehovah, in a favorable time I replied to You, and in a day of salvation I have helped You; and I will preserve You, and give You for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause them to inherit the wasted inheritances;
There is that expression once again. To be a covenant of the people and for the people. They can only inherit the waste places if they begin to obey that covenant. The Philippines loves Israel and want to go there so badly. They can all go if they begin to obey the Covenant and teach it each Sabbath in their homes to their families.
Isa 49:9 that You may say to the prisoners, Go out! To those who are in darkness, Show yourselves! They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
Isa 49:10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; nor shall the heat nor sun strike them; for He who has mercy on them shall lead them; even by the springs of water He shall guide them.
Isa 49:11 And I will make all My mountains a way, and My highways shall be set on high.
Isa 49:12 Behold, these shall come from far; and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.
The identity of “SINIM” with Australia has been explained by us in the past in our previous publications, as shown from the extracts below:
Extracts from “The Tribes”:
The majority of the population of Australia came from Britain and Ireland .
Australia means “Land of the South”, and appears to be called “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12) in the Bible.
“Sinim” is one of the places from which the descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel will return.
AUSTRALIA: Populated largely from Britain and Ireland, Australia is a raiser of sheep, wheat, and cattle and has rich mineral resources.
The most brilliant general of the Allied Forces in World War I and the one whose doctrine led to their ultimate victory, is said to have been Sir John Monash who was an Orthodox Jew from Australia. Australia may have been visited by the Phoenicians and is the Great “South Land” of Legend. Australia is identifiable with the “Land of Sinim” or Land of the South (“Australia” in Latin) from which descendants of the Lost Israelites are destined to return (Isaiah 49:12 and Aramaic Targum). Australia belongs primarily to Joseph.
Extract From “Ephraim”: AUSTRALIA:
“BEHOLD THESE SHALL COME FROM FAR: AND, LO, THESE FROM THE NORTH AND FROM THE WEST; AND THESE FROM THE LAND OF SINIM (Isaiah 49:12).
The Midrash (Tanchuma VaYatzay b:, cf. Lev.Rabah 29:2) says that those exiled “afar” or in a “faraway land” means those who were exiled to Gaul (Gallia i.e. France) and its neighbours.
The Isles of Britain’s neighbor France.
The Israelites will return -“from the north and from the west”, i.e. areas to the northwest of the land of Israel.
They will also return “from the land of Sinim”, meaning (says Rashi and the Aramaic transliteration of Yehonathan) “From the Land of the South”, and according to the Latin Vulgate translation from “Australia” (or “Australis”): “Australis” in Latin means “the land of the south”.
“Land of Sinim” implies ‘Land of the Sini-people’ since the suffix “-im” in Hebrew is the signification of plurality. The SINI were descendants of Canaan (1-Chronicles 1:15), son of Ham, and probably gave their name to the Sinai Peninsula. This is interesting since the Sinai Peninsula is not all desert as often supposed and in Biblical times supported a relatively large population from the Israelite Tribe of Simeon. The Sinai Peninsula was included in the Promised Land of Israel and in some respects is Geographically similar to Australia!
At all events Isaiah 49:12 is saying that amongst the Lands from which the Israelite Exiles will return is the Land of Sinim. We have identified the Land of Sinim with Australia and New Zealand. If this is correct it means that a significant proportion of the Israelite Exiles in the End Times will come from these countries. It also means that all they are kinfolk of the Israelites in Australia and New Zealand must also be of Israelite stock. We have independent evidence showing the Israelite Origins of the British and much of the Irish and others who make up the bulk of the Australian population. The two fields of evidence supplement each other, i.e. if the Australians are Israelites so are their kinfolk overseas and if their kinfolk are Israelites so are they. This seems obvious but it needs to be stated. We have made this “Family Connection” one of our Ten Criteria in determing which nations really are substantially of Israelite descent. The inter-connectability of Brit-Am proofs needs to be emphasized.
“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, o mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted” (Isaiah 49:13).
But here is another thought about Sinim.
Some have even associated Sin with China. Sinim resembles Sinae, the Latinization of Qin, after the Qin (state), founded 778 BC and the Qin dynasty, founded in 221 BC by Qin Shi Huang-Di. At the time of the prophecy there was no one Chinese nation, but many small states. The Chinese associate the origin of their civilization with the capital of ShanXi, namely, Siang-fu (translated Father Sin). In Assyrian records, Siang-fu appears as Sianu.[better source needed]Likewise, the Hebrew suffix -im denotes plurality, meaning the singular of Sinim is Sin, which is a possible abbreviation of Sineh, the Hebrew word for China.
In archaic language nearly identical to that of the King James translation of Isaiah 49:12, Sinim is also mentioned in the nineteenth century Book of Mormon (First Nephi 21:12): “And then, O house of Israel, behold, these shall come from far; and lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.” Current scholarship of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds that Sinim is “possibly [the] land of China”.
And who is it that is going to teach these people from either Australia and or China? It is you Filipinos who wait upon Yehovah.
Isa 49:13 Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break out into singing, O mountains; for the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted.
Isa 49:14 But Zion said, Jehovah has forsaken me, and my LORD has forgotten me.
Isa 49:15 Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
Isa 49:16 Behold, I have carved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are forever before Me.
You can remember the theme of Zechariah by remembering the Hebrew meaning of the three names in 1:1 (and 1:7): Zechariah means, “whom the Lord remembers.” Berechiah means, “the Lord blesses.” Iddo means, “at the appointed time.”
I want you to read this prophecy in Zechariah and I want you to note verse 12. The word for years here is once again Shanah. Yehovah is telling Israel to get out of Babylon before He destroys it and those in it.
A Call to Return to the Lord
Zec 1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
Zec 1:2 Jehovah has been very angry with your fathers.
Zec 1:3 And you say to them, So says Jehovah of Hosts: Turn to Me, says Jehovah of Hosts, and I will turn to you, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 1:4 Be not as your fathers, to whom the former prophets have proclaimed to them, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: Turn now from your evil ways and your evil doings. But they did not hear nor listen to Me, says Jehovah.
Zec 1:5 Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?
Zec 1:6 But My Words and My statutes which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? And they returned and said, As Jehovah of Hosts planned to do to us, according to our ways and according to our doings, so He has done with us.
A Vision of a Horseman
Zec 1:7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, it is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
Zec 1:8 I watched by night. And behold! a Man riding on a red horse, and He stood among the myrtle trees in the ravine. And behind Him were red, sorrel and white horses.
Zec 1:9 Then I said, O my lord, what are these? And the angel who talked with me said to me, I will show you what these are.
Zec 1:10 And the Man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are those whom Jehovah has sent to walk to and fro through the earth.
Zec 1:11 And they answered the Angel of Jehovah who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and behold, all the earth sits still and is at peace.
Zec 1:12 Then the Angel of Jehovah answered and said, O Jehovah of Hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah against which You have cursed these seventy years?
Zec 1:13 And Jehovah answered the angel who talked with me with good words, comfortable words.
Zec 1:14 So the angel who talked with me said to me, Cry out, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
Zec 1:15 And with great anger I am angry at the nations at ease; in that I was but a little angry, and they gave help for evil.
Zec 1:16 Therefore so says Jehovah: I have returned to Jerusalem with mercies. My house shall be built in it, says Jehovah of Hosts. And a line shall be stretched over Jerusalem.
Zec 1:17 Cry out again, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: My cities shall yet be spread abroad through good, and Jehovah shall again overflow with goodness, and Jehovah shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
A Vision of Horns and Craftsmen
Zec 1:18 Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, four horns!
Zec 1:19 And I said to the angel who talked with me, What are these? And he answered me, These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
Zec 1:20 And Jehovah showed me four craftsmen.
Zec 1:21 And I said, What are these coming to do? And He spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man lifted up his head. But these have come to terrify them, to throw down the horns of the nations who lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
A Vision of a Man with a Measuring Line
Zec 2:1 I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold! A man with a measuring line in his hand.
Zec 2:2 Then I said, Where are you going? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its breadth and what is its length.
Zec 2:3 And behold, the angel who talked with me went out, and another angel went out to meet him.
Zec 2:4 And he said to him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited, as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle in her midst.
Zec 2:5 And I, says Jehovah, will be to her a wall of fire all around, and will be the glory in her midst.
Zec 2:6 Ho! Ho! Flee then from the land of the north, says Jehovah. For I have scattered you as the four winds of the heavens, says Jehovah.
Zec 2:7 Ho! O Zion, escape, you who live with the daughter of Babylon.
Zec 2:8 For so says Jehovah of Hosts: He has sent me after glory, to the nations who stripped you; for he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.
Zec 2:9 For behold, I will shake My hand over them, and they shall be a prize for their servants. And you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me.
Zec 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion. For lo, I come, and I will dwell in your midst, says Jehovah.
Zec 2:11 And many nations shall be joined to Jehovah in that day, and shall be My people; and I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me to you.
Zec 2:12 And Jehovah shall possess Judah, His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
Zec 2:13 Be silent, all flesh, before Jehovah; for He has risen out of His holy dwelling place.
You are inscribed in the very palm of Yehovah. That seal upon His heart and in His palms are the same seals with which you are sealed in these last days. By the keeping of the Sabbath and Holy Days. This is what seals you and marks you as His. This is our sign upon our right hand and in our forefeads.
Song of Solomon 8:6 Set me as a seal on Your heart, as a seal on Your arm; for love is strong as death. Jealousy is cruel as the grave; its flames are flames of fire, a flame of Jehovah.
Exo 13:8 And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, This is because of what Jehovah did for me when I came out from Egypt.
Exo 13:9 And it shall be a sign to you upon your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that Jehovah’s Law may be in your mouth. For the Lord has brought you out of Egypt with a strong hand.
Exo 13:10 You shall therefore keep this law in its season from year to year.
Exo 13:16 And it shall be for a token upon your hand, and for frontlets between your eyes. For Jehovah brought us out from Egypt by strength of His hand.
Eze 20:12 And also I gave them My sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I amJehovah who sets them apart.
Getting back to Isaiah 49.
Isa 49:17 Your sons shall make haste; those destroying you and ruining you shall go out from you.
Isa 49:18 Lift up your eyes all around and see; they all gather and come to you. As I live, says Jehovah, you shall surely wear them as an ornament, and bind them on as a bride.
Isa 49:19 For your wastes and your deserted places, and your land of ruins, shall even now be too narrow to dwell there, and they who swallowed you up shall be far away.
Isa 49:20 The sons of your bereavement shall yet say in your ears, The place is too narrow for me; come near to me so that I may dwell.
Isa 49:21 Then you shall say in your heart, Who has borne me these, since I am bereaved, and desolate, turned aside and an exile, and who has brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where were they?
Isa 49:22 So says the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations, and have set up My banner to the people; and they shall bring your sons in their bosom, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.
I want you all to recall my prayers from last weeks Newsletter. Tell me this is not Yehovha answering that prayer that many of us cry out.
Isa 49:23 And kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nurses. They shall bow to you, faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am Jehovah; by whom they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.
Isa 49:24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?
Isa 49:25 But so says Jehovah, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the fearful ones shall escape. For I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your sons.
Isa 49:26 And I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunk with their own blood, as with sweet wine; and all flesh shall know that I Jehovah am your Savior and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
The Philippines Wait Upon Yehovah
The Lord’s Comfort for Zion
Isa 51:1 Listen to me, pursuers of righteousness; seekers of Jehovah: Look to the rock from which you were cut, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.
Isa 51:2 Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.
Isa 51:3 For Jehovah shall comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of Jehovah. Joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.
Isa 51:4 Listen to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation; for a law shall go out from Me, and I will make My judgment to rest for a light of peoples.
Isa 51:5 My righteousness is near; My salvation has gone out, and My arms shall judge peoples; the coastlands shall wait on Me, and on My arm they shall trust.
Isa 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall become old like a garment; and its inhabitants shall die in the same way. But My salvation shall be forever, and My righteousness shall not be broken.
Over and over you the people of the Philippines are told you will wait on Yehovah. Your salvation depends upon you trusting in the right arm of Yehovah.
Isa 51:7 Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My Law; do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their revilings.
Isa 51:8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool; but My righteousness shall be forever, and My salvation from generation to generation.
Isa 51:9 Awake! awake! Put on strength, O arm of Jehovah. Awake! as in the days of old, in the generations of old. Was it not You who cut Rahab into pieces, piercing the sea-monster?
Some Filipinos To Become Priest of Yehovah
The Humble and Contrite in Spirit
Isa 66:1 So says Jehovah, Heaven is My throne, and earth My footstool. Where, then, is the house that you build for Me? And where is the place of My rest?
Isa 66:2 For all those My hand has made, and all those exist, says Jehovah. But to this one I will look, to the afflicted and contrite spirit, and the one who trembles at My Word.
Isa 66:3 He who kills an ox is is as if he killed a man; he who sacrifices a lamb is as if he broke a dog’s neck; he who offers an offering is as if he offered swine’s blood; he who burns incense is as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.
Isa 66:4 I also will choose the things that delude them, and I will bring their fears on them, because I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they did not hear. But they did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I did not delight.
Isa 66:5 Hear the Word of Jehovah, you who tremble at His Word; your brothers who hated you, who cast you out for My name’s sake, said, Let Jehovah be glorified. But He will appear to your joy, and they will be ashamed.
Isa 66:6 A sound of noise from the city, a sound from the temple, a sound of Jehovah repaying His enemies.
Rejoice with Jerusalem
Isa 66:7 Before she travailed, she gave birth; before her pain came, she delivered a man child.
Isa 66:8 Who has heard a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will the earth be brought forth in one day? Or will a nation be born at once? For Zion travailed and also brought forth her sons.
Isa 66:9 Will I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth, says Jehovah? Surely I will cause birth and restrain, says your God.
Isa 66:10 Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all who love her. Rejoice for joy with her, all who mourn for her;
Isa 66:11 that you may suck and be satisfied with her comforting breasts; that you may milk out and be delighted with the fullness of her glory.
Isa 66:12 For so says Jehovah, Behold, I will hold out peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like a flowing stream. Then you will suck, you will be carried on her sides and be dandled upon her knees.
Isa 66:13 As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you will be comforted in Jerusalem.
Isa 66:14 And you will see, and your heart will rejoice, and your bones will flourish like the grass. And the hand of Jehovah will be known toward His servants, and His fury toward His enemies.
Final Judgment and Glory of the Lord
Isa 66:15 For, behold, Jehovah will come with fire, and with His chariots like a tempest, to refresh His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire.
Isa 66:16 For by fire and by His sword Jehovah will execute judgment with all flesh; and the slain of Jehovah will be many.
Isa 66:17 Those who sanctify themselves, and purify themselves to go into the gardens, behind one tree in the middle, eating swine’s flesh, and the hateful thing, and the mouse, will be cut off together, says Jehovah.
Isa 66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts; it comes to gather all the nations and the tongues; and they will come and see My glory.
Isa 66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those who escape from them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, drawers of the bow; to Tubal, and Javan, to the far away coasts that have not heard My fame, nor have seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations.
This is where the Philippines comes in. What is the sing of Yehovah? His Sabbaths and His holy Days and His Sabbatical Years. This is the Banner of Yehovah. Will you keep them or will a Tsunami wipe you and your cities away. Will an earthquake bury you and your loved ones for not obeying? Will a typhoon and flooding rains wash you and everything you hold dear away? The choice is yours. If you obey these things will not come upon you. If you choose not to obey then you can expect them just as the rest of the world does. But you are being called now for this moment in time. How do you respond?
Isa 66:20 And they will bring all your brothers for an offering to Jehovah out of all nations on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem, says Jehovah, as the sons of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of Jehovah.
The people of the Philippines this is your duty, your calling. You are to collect and rescue the remnant of Israel and you will present them to Yehovah as a wave offering. Wave offerings are made at Passover and Shavuot only. But in order to make this offering you must be clean and righteous. To be in this state you must be keeping the Torah and the Holy Days and Sabbaths. Then, THEN if you are doing these things read next what Yehovah is going to do with you.
Isa 66:21 And I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites, says Jehovah.
Yehovah is not taking Levites and making them Levitical Priests. That is already their duty. No, Yehovah is saying to you people of the Philippines that He is going to take some of you and make these Filipinos Levitical Priests. When in the history of Israel has Yehovah ever done this? Is this a small thing that Yehovah is giving to you to do? To wait upon Yehovah and to serve Him in His Temple? How unbelievable and how awesome is this end-time role set out for those of you who will obey. You must obey and you must begin to learn what is expected from you. You do not get this job just because you are Filipino, but if you are obeying Yehovah then you qualify to be chosen to be one of those Priests. How blessed beyond words are you?
Isa 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make stand before Me, says Jehovah, so will your seed and your name stand.
I know that when one Filipino does well the whole country is proud because of their success. Manny Pacquaio and the many champions at the SEA games have made all of the Philippines very proud because of their triumphs. How much more so will your nation feel when members from amoungst you serve in the Temple of Yehovah and wait upon Him? Will you be able to contain your beating hearts in your chests? Will you not cry tears of JOY with humble pride? I know you will.
Isa 66:23 And it will be, from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, all flesh will come to worship before Me, says Jehovah.
Isa 66:24 And they will go out and see the dead bodies of the men who have sinned against Me; for their worm will not die, nor will their fire be put out; and they will be an object of disgust to all flesh.
A Filipino Tsunami
My Dearest Brethren in the Philippines, can you now see the important end time role you have to do? Are you able to do that role now? Do any of you know how to perform the duties of the Temple? Are you keeping the Sabbath? Are you keeping the Holy Days? Have you ever kept the Sabbatical Years and let the land rest? Can you teach your brethren the deep meanings that are hidden in the Sabbath and Holy Days and Sabbatical and Jubilee Years that reveal Yehovahs plan of salvation? Do you know them? Can you explain and teach the Calendar issues and how to know which one is the proper one to keep? Can you prove these things? Any of them or all of them?
We at sightedmoon.com have been doing all of this since 2005 when Yehovah showed me the Jubilee Cycles and how they reveal end time prophecy. No one else was teaching on these things and today still no one else is teaching about these things. This is why we are so sure of the times we are in right now. We are coming into the middle of the 70th Jubilee Cycle since the Exodus. The time during which the 12 tribes of Israel were to draw closer to Yehovah. They have not drawn closer and have instead moved away from Him and are now about to be punished.
This same 70th Jubilee Cycle is the 120th one for all of mankind. Once Israel has been punished then the Great Whore of Babylon will be destroyed and at the same time Satan will be locked away. It is during this time that the rest of the world will also be punished and very few men will be left alive.
There is only one way for you people in the Philippines to survive this. That is by obeying Yehovah and waiting upon Him and doing His will. Rescuing the survivors of Israel and protecting them until it is time to give them back to Yehovah in 2030. After that time some of you will be made Priests of Yehovah and serve Him directly. 2030 is just ten years away from now. But the punishment of Israel, all 12 tribes begins after Shavuot 2020.
How many people in the Philippines are going to die because they will not obey Yehovah? How many from your own family and friends?
We want to help you to get ready. No one else is telling you of this great potential before you. It is only told to you from here at Sightedmoon.com. Do you want us to teach you all these truths and much much more? Do you want to learn these things about Yehovah? Do you want to serve Him and be amongst His Priests? Invite us to come and teach you fulltime. Invite our team to come and help you train many more.
We are going to need corporate sponsorships from across the Philippines in order to get the whole nation ready. We are going to need the cooperation of the Government and Radio and TV in order to teach the individual pastors and people across the entire Philippines. We are going to need those Pastors to learn these truths and then teach them to the everyday person on the streets. And using the TV and Radio airwave we need the Philippines to be the Tsunami that sweeps across all of Asia and begins to heal the nations that are going to be caught up in the upheavals that are now going to take place.
To make this Filipino Tsunami ready we will need many schools and many teachers teaching the people all of these truths. And we will need a life size Tabernacle replica here in the Philippines to work with and teach from and instruct from.
Instead of bringing destruction you will bring healing and peace to an already wrecked world. You the People of the Philippines will flood Asia and overwhelm them with the power of the Word and by your example of how to live out this life of Torah.
One man can not do this alone. But you provide the schools, sponsors and the radio and TV stations so that we can reach all of the Philippines, then a few can do a lot. There are already a number of pastors teaching some of these truths in the north Central and Southern Philippines but they need more instruction. They need more teachings on the ground about the Sabbath and Holy Days and Jubilee Cycles. We need more Pastors and we need more to teach the teachers. Will you now stop being a passive supporter of this work and become an engaged and active supporter. Especialy from the Philippines.
Learning the Torah in every home so that all earthquakes and typhoons and floods and mudslides and eruptions stop. So the people of the Philippines can be blessed and become the #1 nation in these last days by obeying Yehovah and keeping HIs laws.
Through Brother Aike, in Manila, we both need to hear from you about support for us to teach your Pastors in schools and support for us to be on the Radio and TV every day from now until the Messiah comes and that day is not too far off. Will you help us? Will you supply those things we need to do this? Do you know of those who can and will? It is time now to begin to prepare for the greatest event in the history of the world. The coming of the Messiah and the start of the 7th Millennium of rest. It is time now to begin.
I eagerly await your reply.
Hi! Bro Joseph. I’m more than willing to help. My name is Benedict Bueno, I’m a Filipino and we are already Facebook friend.
Shalom Be Be, yes we do have many Filipinos who want to help and will help. This is very inspiring. What we need are places to school pastors and do a daily radio show to teach all of the Philippines. And these things take sponsorships. So we are hoping to find those who will support this work from the Philippines and help us to help teach more teachers and send them out to teach still more.
This was an inspiring and uplifting newsletter. My visit to the Philippines confirm that the people are awaiting the Law of Yehovah. It’s amazing to know that President Duterete supports the work. With you, I believe that the Levitical priesthood will be raised up from there. It’s wonderful to see.
And I want to thank you for last week’s newsletter. I was expecially moved by your prayers. You spoke to many of the issues I struggle with. Considering all of the fearful events talking place around the world it’s good to focus on the positive outcome Yehovah is bringing about.
Shalom to all, on this Sabbath morning – – – –
Those who follow Christ are called Fishers. Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
We find written by the prophet Jeremiah 16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
Now the time of the Fishers is just about over. The time of the hunters is just about ready to start – – maybe June next year 2020. The writing says MANY HUNTERS. The hunters will ferret out those in the underground bunkers,(holes of the rocks).
The Scripture also tells us to FLEE – – FLY, like birds, Swift – – Fast, without hesitation, far away from these Hunters as written in Proverbs 6:5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
“There are only very few families now living in this Island village. Due to the far away distance and no electricity and no school available for the children. … Almost perfect for goshen. I believe this is the one. We shall return soon.” Brother Aike.
J.Dumond responds: “I am not convinced we need to find a remote place to hunker down in. I believe we need to get the people of the Philippines ready for the end time role they are going to play in relationship to the remnant of Israel.”
I add: It’s a strong motivation to seek off-the-grid survival in isolated locations, beyond the clutches of “the hunters” of Jerem. 16:16. In my longtime recollection, church (and secular) leaders have off-set such existential risk via “hunkered down’ in physically-defendable geographic solutions. Jordan’s tourist-destination, Petra, was a naive favourite of the now-dissembled, Protestant-aligned, Worldwide Church of God until the mid 1970s. Replaced now by the more likely prophesied escape from Satan’s wrath of the believing Remnant to Jordan’s Bozrah [Micah 2:12-13; Revel.12:6,13-17.] Nevertheless in the transitional interim [2020 to 2030 C.E.], a more centralised urbanised Philippine venue would reflect J.D’s conjecture noted herein, thus enabling “salt” [Matt.5:13] to do it’s widely-dispersed food-savouring [population-enlightening] job.
What an outstanding study this week. I never dreamed I would ever have such knowledge back when i was still in the traditional Christain mindset. It always excited me to learn more about Yehovah’s plan for this world. I am humbled to given such gold throuygh this website and it’s ministry. Thank you so much, Joseph. I look forward to what others come up with about this study.
I got a real cool Sabbath greeting from a brother that was sent to him from a sister and wanted to share it seeing it was such a wonderful thought
“There once was a man that challenged the Faith of thousands of people by walking a tightrope….
In the Summer of 1859 a man named Charles Blondin performed this feat, while pushing a wheelbarrow in front of him, 160 feet above Niagara Falls. Several times he went forwards and then backwards between Canada and the United States as huge crowds on both sides looked on with shock and awe.
This feat made him famous, but what he did next struck at the very soul of each person.
It is said that he asked his audience, “Do you believe I can carry a person across this tightrope in this wheelbarrow?” Of course the crowd all shouted that Yes, they believed!
It was then that he posed the question – “Who then will get into the wheelbarrow?”
Of course…no one did.
This story illustrates how it is one thing to confess our Faith and another to act upon it.
The crowd had watched his daring feats. They said they believed, but their actions proved they truly didn’t.
There will be times when our Faith is tried by extreme measures and it will be then that we realize it takes more than mere words to believe….it takes trust.
So, if today jumping into a wheelbarrow comes your way, be strengthened in knowing that God can push you across every obstacle, and keep you safe despite the height of what you may be facing!

Love out to all the brethren from NS Canada
The God Culture researchers (from CANADA) already did the research about the migration of the Israelites, both the Kingdom of Judah and the “lost” 10 tribes of Israel. They have also identified some of Hebrew sounding names of places in the Philippines, the source of King Solomon’s gold and the location of Ophir, Tarshish, Havilah and Sheba. Lately they have put out a new YOUTUBE video of YAH’s SPRING FEASTS.
I heard about the group a year ago and watched their many, many, EXCELLENT videos, both in ENGLISH AND TAGALOG (Philippine language). I do not know how they are funded but they did not respond to my offer for donating to the cause.
Some suggested that they come to the Philippines to do conferences BUT some cautioned that they do not because of the dangers of what they are teaching. They came anyway to the Philippines and started the conference in many areas. Pastors and Local officials have sponsored conferences and some viewers have also volunteered to donate for renting large halls/arenas.
PLEASE Enjoy “RISE UP SHEBA” VIDEO.
Following is their FACEBOOK page.
……….. I believed BROTHER AIKE attended one of the conferences. This is their website:
PROVE ALL THINGS………RESTORING ANCIENT TRUTH.
YAH Bless all those doing HIS work.” DIFFERENT LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING AND LEARNING FROM ONE ANOTHER BUT NOT CAUSING DIVISIONS”.
Thank you Joseph for sharing your prayer with us last week. I have prayed it several times. One thing I add is to firmly hope that, as these things become more apparent, our families will realize our understanding has substance. In a way, every Sabbath and then this christmas season are times when our family sees us and asks questions. I have been praying for the right words and meekness. Now, with your mentioning Chrislam, I did some checking and took notice(!) while I listened to my sunday service online. My husband has been zealous for the traditions of men (sunday). However he is very ready to reject Chrislam. I plan to share 1 John 2:4 and Revelation 7 seal the bond-slaves. Unless we can walk together, I am looking at Revelation 13:10.
If there was ever a time to reiterate this, I believe it is now!
“YOU NEVER KNOW YOU’VE BEEN ASLEEP TILL YOU WAKE UP!”
WAKE UP ISRAEL!!! YEHOVAH IS SOUNDING THE ALARM!!!
Thanks for your newsletters and constant updates to reflect what is yet to come. We are long time supporters and have read all your works. Can I ask what you perceive the role of Melchizedek priests to be especially with regard to Levitical priests? I was under the impression via Matt Nolan and Dr David Perry that those who keep Moedim, Sabbath, dietary laws etc are Priests of the Order of Melchizedek and that Levitical Priests were only initiated to ensure the Children of Israel adhered to the ‘tutor of imposed law ie a kingdom ‘with’ priests. Because of the Blood of Yashua we are now a Kingdom ‘of’ Priests?? I understand that some nations may be Levites and therefore be natural Levites however, if they are also living a set apart life are they not also Melchizedek Priests by virtue of Yashua’s redeeming blood and their commitment to Torah? Hope you can help. Shalom Debbie and Gary Cunliffe
Mr Nolan is the one who gave you permission to eat and drink on the Day of Atonement. Directly contrasting what Lev 23 says about not eating or drinking on that day. So I do not value anything he puts forward. Sorry.
And that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD has spoken to them by the hand of Moses.
Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so you shall observe to do.
And the Levites shall speak, and say to all the men of Israel with a loud voice,
And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it to the priests the sons of Levi, which bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and to all the elders of Israel.
They shall teach Jacob your judgments, and Israel your law: they shall put incense before you, and whole burnt sacrifice on your altar.
The Levitical Priests are to teach and to serve Yehovah.
It is an interesting question. YOu can maybe find your answer here https://hoshanarabbah.org/blog/2014/09/09/levitical-vs-the-melchizedek/
As for me. Each of us has a job to do. No matter whether you are of the order of Zaddock, or Mechezedeck or Levitical priests. Each of us is to spread the warning message to this dying generation that time is now up. They either repent and return to His Torah or die. When we are given our rewards by The Messiah then we will know which order we belong to. To get worked up over this subject at this time does not help you to do this work now. But then that is my opinion.
So, here we are at the twilight — the eleventh hour — of man’s work at attempting to make a civilization in a world contaminated by sin. Is it any surprise that a nation such as the Philippines, which some might consider the least of nations being a group of islands on the edge of the world, is being setup by our Heavenly Father to be among the the first to bring an offering when this earth is visiied again by Him at the next resurrection? Let us hope and pray that the people listen to and answer the call.

This I will share with pastors I know.
Salamat. Gracias. Thank You, for opening my eyes.
P.S. I want to buy ‘Remembering Sabbatical Years…’ how much is it in Philippine pesos?
Shabbat Shalom Antonio, make a donation for whatever amount you think is fair to PayPal in Peso’s and I will send you the e-book right away. Sound fair? It does require you to use Paypal. Let me know if this is a problem.
