Are You Joining The Dots?

Joseph F. Dumond

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

Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,

Philippines Recovery

We had asked for donations to help our brethren who were hit by the 4 different earthquakes in Mindanao Philippines. They had 4 different tectonic plates shift below them. Then they had the various aftershocks. Dennis wrote to us and thanked us for our help in their time of crisis.


Shalom brother and sister from sightedmoon,

We are humble and grateful for your help brother Joseph Dumond, sister Pauline Reardon-Benjes, brother Ross Boran, brother Matthew Samario, Tita Corett Buri and all the brethren who help us and share there money in the time of our crisis here in Philippine specially here in Digos. Me and the brethren here are very thankful to you all, the money that you give us was a very big help to us to survive many days for our family since our economy was down and no where to make money to buy foods and everything we need. We did buy sack’s of rice and groceries and divided to 78 families here that we know and attending Torah. You don’t know how thankful we are for your kind and attitude to helps us here, May Yehovah bless you more . . . I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Yeshua, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35 Again THANK YOU


Bucket List

Mount Sinai, Nuweiba, And Noah’s Ark

We had asked everyone if they were interested in going to the real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia. When I contacted Andrew Jones about this trip he said our March date would have the Nuweiba, Red Sea Crossing site included in this tour as an extension. We now have a total of 21 people, I think, signed up for this tour. Then, this week Andrew wrote to me and told me to check out his latest extension. From Saudi Arabia we are going to go to Jordan and then take a ferry to Nuweiba and the staring place of the Red Sea Crossing. After that we head up to the pyramids. Then Andrew said we could also go to Noah’s Ark, in Eastern Trukey.

I know there are very few people who have gone to Noah’s Ark. I am one of those few. I also know there are even fewer, right now, who have been to Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia. But I wanted to be one of the few who had done both. Andrew has done both. And now, this option is there for you to be one of the few people in the world who has gone to both of these sites.

Please let me know if you want to go so I can share with you the instructions as to flights and arrival times. There is room for a few more. But after that the door will be closed.

Zoom Meeting Last Sabbath

Last Sabbath we had an online zoom meeting with me being interviewed by the They wanted to know why the Jubilee Cycles were so important and if they could really know when they are. The audience was not always receptive to us and some were even hostile to our views. This is a good lesson for some of you to learn how to approach those who are not exactly eager to hear from you about the Jubilee Cycles.


Keep God Out of California

I saw this sign a few weeks back and thought how profound. California, the most liberal of liberal states. Anything and everything that has to do with Yehovah God they want removed and prevented from having any moral standards over them. Women’s Rights, LGBT Rights, Women’s Choice Rights.

The USA has been in a spiral that is speeding up in recent years. It began, in my estimation, with the removal of public prayers in schools.

In 1963 there started to be some people against the Lord’s Prayer in public schools.

The U. S. Supreme Court issued two bans. One in 1962 and the second in 1963. Both bans were the result of lawsuits against the teaching of religion and religious practices in public schools. Basically stating that organized prayer in schools was a violation of the separation of church and state. It was decided that publicly funded schools were an extension of the state, and that organized prayer or Bible readings were a form of proselytizing. The bans not only banned mandatory prayer in schools but also banned the daily reading of bible passages.

The lawsuits were supported by several organizations but the most outspoken supporter for banning prayer in schools came from Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the founder of American Atheists, Inc.

The Ten Commandments were order to be taken down from in front of City Hall May 1, 2001. This is just one quote, but there are many for every state legislature and court house and even in the schools.

Since 1958, the city of Elkhart, Indiana, has had a six-foot statue of the Ten Commandments in front of its City Hall. Now the Supreme Court is commanding the city to pull a Moses on the tablets. Actually, the Supreme Court is merely letting stand a federal appeals court decision to remove the monument.

With the growing divide becoming more and more visible between the Liberals and the Christian conservatives in the USA I was talking to Pauline about this and asking her about how it is in Australia. It was not long into the conversation that Pauline began to bawl about all the horrors in the news in Australia and how she was begging for the Aussies to repent and return to Yehovah. But she was only mocked and ridiculed over this. Pauline was very emotional about this and I asked her to write the following report straight away. And she did.

Idolaters Killed
Eze 9:1  Then he cried in my ears with a loud voice, saying, “Bring near the executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand.”

Eze 9:2  And behold, six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his weapon for slaughter in his hand, and with them was a man clothed in linen, with a writing case at his waist. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

Eze 9:3  Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub on which it rested to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writing case at his waist.

Eze 9:4  And the LORD said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.”

Eze 9:5  And to the others he said in my hearing, “Pass through the city after him, and strike. Your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity.

Eze 9:6  Kill old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but touch no one on whom is the mark. And begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the house.

Eze 9:7  Then he said to them, “Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out.” So they went out and struck in the city.

Eze 9:8  And while they were striking, and I was left alone, I fell upon my face, and cried, “Ah, Lord GOD! Will you destroy all the remnant of Israel in the outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?”

Eze 9:9  Then he said to me, “The guilt of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great. The land is full of blood, and the city full of injustice. For they say, ‘The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see.’

Eze 9:10  As for me, my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity; I will bring their deeds upon their heads.”

Eze 9:11  And behold, the man clothed in linen, with the writing case at his waist, brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded me.”

Do you see the world and its abominations? Do you mourn over those who commit such acts; knowing they are about to die?

Connecting the Dots

November 4, 2019, Joe sent me a photo and asked me to do some research about Australia and New Zealand with regard to fire and kicking God out of their countries.

I had no idea at the time when I began the research that Australia was about to explode into the harrowing bushfire season we are experiencing now.

The fire season in Australia can vary depending on the region and how much rain there has been during the previous months. This past year has been another year of drought and very dry conditions making for a potentially volatile season. Lakes, riverbeds and reservoirs are severally depleted and farmers in mid and north QLD are struggling to keep their cattle alive. We reported to you about the severity of the drought in our October 5, 2019 News Letter.

When I first started working with Joe, I used to be able to keep up with all the disasters happening around the world; posting lots of them to the Sighted Moon Facebook page. But as time has gone by I’m finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the volume of incidents… floods, tsunamis, earthquakes and slaughtered Christians in the Middle East. When I spoke with Joe about this, he said he has the same problem now. There is simply too much going on. The curses of Leviticus 26 have become a daily news report; but only to those who see it.

Like frogs in hot water, not noticing the rising temperature, bubbles and steam… I hear over and over…

  • ‘this is normal’
  • ‘we’ve had lots of ‘insert disaster’ before’
  • ’it’s nothing new’
  • it’s the government’s fault’
  • ‘it’s global warming’
  • ’it’s chem-trails’
  • ‘it’s climate change’
  • ‘Mother nature is angry because we don’t …‘insert green directive’’


Then the disasters are quickly followed by…

  • ‘we can rebuild’
  • ‘we’re strong’
  • ‘we’re resilient’
  • ‘we have a great community, this won’t keep us down’
  • ‘we’re so lucky’

This fire season, people are arguing that it’s the government’s fault for not clearing enough undergrowth or because the Government didn’t do this or that to prepare for the fire season. They say… We’re really lucky it’s not worse than it is.

What everyone is failing to see is; the Government and civilian decisions to cut Yehovah out of their lives, schools and communities and their stubbornness in continuing with idolatry.

Predominantly, Christmas is everybody’s favourite holiday season. In Australia, Christmas means summer holidays, no school, BBQs, swimming and visits to the beach… and eating lots and lots of ham and prawns.

April 25 is ANZAC day. A commemoration of the fallen Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This is a day which begins with a dawn service, wreaths are laid at phallic monuments and red poppies are worn.

But time and time again… everybody fails to see the idolatry of it all. Then to add to that, there are all the new laws that have come into our Australian and New Zealand governments that go against Yehovah’s Covenant made at Mt Sinai. But we will get to that in a minute.

Yes, yes, I know… I’ve just stepped on your toes. Yes, our countries were developed out of war where our freedoms were fought for. I don’t disagree with that. My grandfather was a WWII hero too. But the problem I do have with it… is the idolatry of bowing to the Christmas tree, and the phallic statue at a dawn service, which honours the sun god and Nimrod… It does not honour our Creator Yehovah.

Do you know what that means? It means that no matter how much the forest floor is swept clean of tinder-dry matter, or how often the bush and outback underbrush is back-burned… Yehovah said…

Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

OK, so you think Christmas trees and war memorials are harmless?  Sure… they are completely useless and cannot harm you, just like the Serpent suggested to Eve that a bite of the forbidden fruit would not cause her death, at the time of eating it.

Idols also do not bring anyone salvation. Instead… they are abhorrent too Yehovah! … So what?

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore mongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Warning Against Idolatry

1Co 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

1Co 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

1Co 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

1Co 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

1Co 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

1Co 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

1Co 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

1Co 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

1Co 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

1Co 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for

>>> ensamples:<<<

and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

1Co 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall

1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1Co 10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved,

>>> flee from idolatry. <<<

1Co 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.

1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

1Co 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

1Co 10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?

1Co 10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?

1Co 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.

1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

1Co 10:22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

This is, of course, not to mention all the other forms of idolatry! It goes without saying that all the Catholic churches in Australia that have idols and statues also come under this curse.

1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Are you being stubborn about your lack of obedience to Yehovah?

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Rev 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers*, and whore mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Exodus 22:18  Thou shalt not suffer a witch* to live.


*Witch H3784   (Strong)



A primitive root; properly to whisper a spell, that is, to inchant or practise magic: – sorcerer, (use) witch (-craft).

Please notice that the word ‘sorcerer’ means ‘pharmakos’ e.g. pharmakia which is where the words ‘pharmacy’ and ‘pharmaceuticals’ come from. This is something modern doctors love to prescribe us…. Sorcery and Witchcraft.

Then add to that all the people who don’t keep the 7th day Sabbath, Yehovah’s appointments, don’t go to Jerusalem for the three commanded feasts and don’t keep the 10 Commandments. This makes for a lethal cocktail… and yet we wonder why our rain doesn’t fall in season, why our riverbeds are dry, why our population is sick with incurable diseases and why these fires are so catastrophic.

Exo 31:14  Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

Deu 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

Deu 11:17  And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.

Deu 28:23  And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

Deu 28:24  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

Deu 16:16  Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:

Zec 14:17  And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

Idolatry and adultery are the same thing.

Jer 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks*.

*Stocks H6086   (Strong)



From H6095; a tree (from its firmness); hence wood (plural sticks): –    + carpenter, gallows, helve, + pine, plank, staff, stalk, stick, stock, timber, tree, wood.

Jer 23:14  I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Lev 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.


Let’s look at what Yehovah said to Jeremiah …

Jer 11:10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
Jer 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.
Jer 11:12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
Jer 11:13 For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.
Jer 11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

Dear friends, it has been so upsetting to watch this disaster unfold on the east coast of Australia… knowing that if only they had repented and turned back to Yehovah’s Covenant and were keeping His Sabbaths; this was not likely to happen!

For goodness sake people!!! Please sit down on the Sabbath!!! Stop injecting your kids with ‘vaccines’ that don’t work, STOP committing adultery, STOP your pornographic habit, STOP lying, STOP placating your gay kids, STOP aborting your babies and STOP with the idols!!!


Yehovah sees you! He sees what you do, He sees the decisions you make against him, He sees your stiff-necked obstinacy and hard heartedness toward Him. He sees it when you are lukewarm and halfhearted.

Rev 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth!

You might be the most loving person in the world to those around you… but Christmas presents, dawn services, the LGBTIQ lifestyle, pornography, abortions and vaccines … are ABHORRENT to Him!

SERIOUSLY!!! Can any of us afford to lose any more blessings? Because; that’s exactly what’s happening. YOUR behavior and YOUR hardheartedness, and YOUR stiff-necked belligerence against Yehovah’s Covenant; brings these curses upon yourself as an individual, your family and children, your communities and the country as a whole.

The blessing of rain, water in the lakes and reservoirs, grass for our cattle and water for our crops. Can we really afford to lose these things? If you think it’s ok to buy a coffee or fill your petrol tank on Shabbat, if you think it doesn’t matter if you have sex with your wife during her period, if you think it doesn’t matter if you buy gifts for your grandkids for Christmas… while you piously ‘don’t keep Christmas’ yourself… you are fooling yourself and you need to wake up! NOW!!!


Curse #2 Severe Weather, Drought, Famine, Hunger.

Lev 26:18-20 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I shall punish you seven times more for your sins. 19  ‘And I shall break the pride of your power, and shall make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. 20  ‘And your strength shall be spent in vain and your land not yield its crops, nor the trees of the land yield their fruit.

Let’s remember what Isaiah 66:16 says…

Isa 66:16  For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

In Australia we have whole towns that are nearly out of water. And these are the same areas that are threatened by bushfire today. Check this area against the maps below.

This week I’ve even heard stories where the property owners have given what little water they have in their tank, to the firefighters so they can fight the encroaching flames and hopefully save their home.

Country towns close to reaching ‘day zero’, as water supplies dry up in the drought

Ten towns, including major centres, are considered to be at high risk of running out within six months, if it doesn’t rain and if water infrastructure isn’t improved.

Councils are rushing to put emergency measures in place, but more than a decade since the end of the millennium drought, water security is still almost non-existent for many rural communities.

Parts of this country are so dry that the top soil has been lifted into the air by strong winds, developing massive dust storms. This past month the dust, and now also the smoke in the air, is so bad and so voluminous that a massive cloud has reached New Zealand.

Deu 28:24  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

So much for biohazard border control of possible contamination from Australian soil to New Zealand farmers and the NZ water supply. Ay! Look what Yehovah is doing. Are you joining the dots yet?

And I haven’t even touched on the subject of un-seasonal snow in Tasmania or the fires in Western Australia. Nor have I mentioned the previous floods and erosion from the past years that have caused great heartache and devastation to our famers, crops and livestock; all disasters we are still trying to recover from or still trying to give aide to e.g. ‘Buy a Bale’ for farmers. You can read more about that here…

This following image was posted on Facebook on 9 Nov 2019. All photos were taken in November and demonstrate the extremes happening here lately.

The contrasts in our country are truly crazy. These 4 photos are from NSW alone!

2019 Australian Fire Season

The following videos and articles are just some of what’s been happening. We’ve had so little rain, not only this year but for decades… I can remember going to the ‘Breaking of the Drought’ concert at the Boondall Entertainment Centre in 1995. But sing-alongs with big name bands like Crowded House and Midnight Oil… and money dropped into the donation buckets has made not an iota of difference.

Devastating bushfires burn across Queensland | 7.30

More than 50 homes have been damaged or destroyed, and hundreds more are under threat. Authorities say the early start to the bushfire season is unprecedented and many are burning in regions not used to the threat of fire. (Stanthorpe is inland of Brisbane)

Residents count cost of properties lost in Queensland’s bushfire crisis.

More than 70 fires are still burning across Queensland, engulfing 33,000 hectares of the state in the past week.

Communities in the Gold Coast Hinterland have suffered the biggest property losses in the disaster.

Exhausted locals who have weathered the stress of bushfires for more than a week are moving back home and asking how could this have happened?

But will any of them seek Yehovah? Or will they continue with their Christmas plans?

QLD bracing for long, dry bushfire season

Fewer cyclones are likely to hit Queensland this summer but a “dangerous cocktail” of hot and dry weather will bring more extreme bushfires.

Bureau of Meteorology State Manager Bruce Gunn says fires remain the main concern for the rest of 2019.

The wet weather isn’t tipped to arrive until late summer and much of the state might not get the much-needed rain to turn tinder-dry paddocks green again.

“The rainfall outlook is for well below normal chances of above average rainfall,” he said on Monday.

“So combined with the warmer than average temperatures and the increased chance of heatwaves, on top of the last few years of rainfall deficit, it’s a pretty dangerous cocktail for fire danger conditions for the rest of the year.

“Continued vigilance is going to be necessary.”

Mr Gunn said the cyclone risk for this season is “slightly below average”, and that it was still far too early to make any predictions about when and where they might cross the coastline.

However he warned there was no place for complacency.

“Parts of Queensland will undoubtedly experience major flooding or a tropical cyclone before the end of the 2019-2020 season,” he said.


Lev 26:19  And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:

Friends, I’m warning you too… there is no more time left for complacency. The time to take action, and by that I mean repentance, yes, repentance; back to Yehovah’s Covenant… the time is NOW. Keep the 10 Commandments! Don’t be complacent! Joseph Dumond has proven it over and over, we are in the last Jubilee cycle, the 120th Jubilee cycle since the Creation of Adam. From now until 2045, when the next millennial day begins, all the rest of Yehovah’s prophecies are to take place. Terror, drought, famine, disease, war, and the great tribulation are just ahead of us.


Who will be protected during that time? Those who pray to Mary? Those who give tarot card readings? Those who secretly pleasure themselves in front of porn? Perhaps habitual liars and those who steal? What about the atheists who celebrate Christmas? Or those who burn incense before the Buddha that so delightfully decorates their home? Or the sweet woman who’s just not ready to have a baby yet, so she aborted it? How about swingers? They’re loving, caring and sharing people… right?

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore-mongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Lev 20:1  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Lev 20:2  Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

Lev 20:3  And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

Lev 20:4  And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

Lev 20:5  Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

Lev 20:6  And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

Who can be shielded from the wrath of Yehovah?

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Rev 22:15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

My Refuge and My Fortress

Psa 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psa 91:2  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Psa 91:3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Psa 91:4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Psa 91:5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Psa 91:6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

Psa 91:7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Psa 91:8  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Psa 91:9  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

Psa 91:10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Psa 91:11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Psa 91:12  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Psa 91:13  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Psa 91:14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

Psa 91:15  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

Psa 91:16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

But in the meantime for those that don’t live under the protection of His wings…

‘Absolute tragedy’: hundreds of koalas feared dead after NSW bushfires

Researchers found only two living koalas after fires burned through the native marsupial’s breeding ground in north-eastern NSW


What’s really an absolute tragedy is Australia’s lack of reverence for Yehovah and His Covenant. The people of Australia are the ones that have caused the death of Koalas and all the other wildlife that has perished in these fires. Yet, they will say it has nothing to do with them… they all want to blame someone else… it’s the Government’s fault… it’s the Greenie’s fault… it’s God’s fault.

Sheesh! Give me a break!

Lev 26:14  But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;

Lev 26:15  And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

Lev 26:16  I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

Lev 26:17  And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

In 2013 the forcasted temperatures were so extreme that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology increased the the temperature index to 54 degrees celcius.

Then in 2017 a new fire danger rating was added, increasing the highest severity warning from severe to catastrophic.

But like frogs in hot water, too busy eating another ice cream, no one notices that the cause and effect is our own sin increasing the fire danger, holding back the rain, killing our livestock, flora and fauna. We have done this to ourselves.

Deu 28:15  But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Deu 28:16  Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

Deu 28:17  Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

Deu 28:18  Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Deu 28:19  Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

Deu 28:20  The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

9:00am: Across NSW there are still 66 fires burning, 21 are yet to be contained. More than 850 firefighters and support personnel remain deployed. Fire dangers are expected to increase over coming days with warm, dry and windy weather returning.

My heart breaks for all the damage and hurt inflicted on the people in these fire areas… I want to pray for them all… but ringing inside my head is…

Jer 7:16  Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.

Jer 7:17  Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?

Jer 7:18  The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Jer 7:19  Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?

Jer 7:20  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

Bushfire warning level: WATCH AND ACT

Currently as at 1.35pm Sunday 10 November, a bushfire is burning in the Booroobin area. The fire is currently contained and burning between Maleny Stanley River Road and River Road.

Let’s look at just one example of who’s in the Booroobin area and how close they are to one of the fires. This wedding reception ad appeared on Facebook as a fire is blazing only minutes away from them.

The fire danger is so bad that we are being told, via TV and radio, that if you live even one hour away from a fire you are still in danger. The embers are being swept along so fast they are starting new fires kilometres/miles ahead of them. Yet, businesses like this are giving the finger to Yehovah and carrying on with business as usual, blissfully unaware of the real danger, from Yehovah.

Are you still sure you should be supporting and placating your LGBTIQ family members?  Yes, I know… it makes you unpopular. Which would you prefer? The favor of Yehovah or that of your family?

1Pe 4:12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:13  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

1Pe 4:14  If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

1Pe 4:15  But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.

1Pe 4:16  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1Pe 4:18  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Forecast for Tuesday November 12: For the first time in history the fire danger level for, Sydney is: CATASTROPHIC.  Actually, all the fire reports and interviews I’ve seen/heard this past week have used words like ‘apocalyptic’, ‘catastrophic’ and ‘unprecedented’

NSW bushfires deemed ‘catastrophic’ as residents are urged to leave their homes before it’s too late

More than 1,300 firefighters have been mobilized across NSW to battle “catastrophic” bushfires.

A catastrophic danger warning has been issued for Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Illawarra for Tuesday.

The Army has been formally authorized to respond and assist residents, who have in turn been encouraged to evacuate.

A week-long state of emergency was issued by Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

Lev 26:17  And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and >>>> ye shall flee when none pursueth you.<<<<

In this next video you can see fire tornados.

Let’s have a quick look at Isaiah 66:15-17.

I’m going to use emojis and bold to demonstrate this scripture passage to you…

Isa 66:15-17 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse*, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

* mouse H5909   (Strong)



Probably from the same as H5908 in the secondary sense of attacking; a mouse (as nibbling): – mouse.

Queensland and NSW fires: residents survey ‘heartbreaking’ damage

Ryan Brooks walks through what was his family’s pineapple farm north of Yeppoon, in central Queensland. ‘All our planting bins, they’re gone. That was one of our sheds, that’s gone. The original farm house has gone’, he says while looking around the scorched remains of the property. ‘Dad’s been here 50 years and never seen anything like that. It’s pretty heartbreaking for us all’.  In northen New South Wales, Thomas ‘Noel’ Eveans  picks through the remains of his home, where sheets of aluminium and glass melted during the intense blaze that destroyed 12 homes in the village of Torrington



12 Nov | Schools Closed

More than 600 schools and colleges will be closed today due to bushfires across New South Wales and Queensland.

The NSW Department of Education said parents may choose not to send their children to school if they have other supervision arrangements in place.

The staggering number of closures comes after at least 60 schools shut on Monday, which impacted students sitting their final day of HSC examinations in NSW.

Education Minister Sarah Mitchell reassured students that those unable to attend the final day of exams due to bushfires would not be disadvantaged.

Ms Mitchell said some schools, such as Bobin Public School on the NSW Mid North Coast, have already suffered “significant damage”.

Hasty Climate Change Demonstration

About 1000 protestors gathered outside parliament house on Macquarie Street for a hastily convened protest demanding urgent climate action this morning.

Protestors carried signs reading: “Scientists were wrong: it is much worse” and “If now is not the time to talk about the climate emergency, when the hell is?”

Simon Clough, the former deputy mayor of Lismore, said fires had threatened his property for weeks, and remain burning on a ridge 5km kilometres from his house.

“I’m a country person, perhaps the leader of the National party would like to know that,” he said. “But I stand with you ‘loony lefties’ or whatever it is, because climate change is real. And we are experiencing it at this moment.”

Speeches were interrupted with cheers of “Up the Fireys” and sustained cheers for the Rural Fire Service.

Fire and Police investigations reports have been telling us about who the fire-starters are from; lightening stricks to a youth playing with a blow torch. But in Scripture tells us…

Deu 32:39  See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

Defence Force silent over reports linking Gold Coast hinterland bushfire to live ammunition training

Residents who almost lost their homes in the Gold Coast hinterland bushfires have expressed anger over reports the blaze may have started during army live firing exercises at neighbouring Kokoda Barracks.

I just want to change the subject slightly here and talk a bit about ‘luck’. So many times we hear people say ‘that was lucky’ or ‘you were lucky’.

But who or what is ‘luck’ from a Biblical perspective?

This is from the CJB translation:

Isa 65:1  “I made myself accessible to those who didn’t ask for me, I let myself be found by those who didn’t seek me. I said, ‘Here I am! Here I am!’ to a nation not called by my name.

Isa 65:2  I spread out my hands all day long to a rebellious people who live in a way that is not good, who follow their own inclinations;

Isa 65:3  a people who provoke me to my face all the time, sacrificing in gardens and burning incense on bricks.

Isa 65:4  They sit among the graves and spend the night in caverns; they eat pig meat and their pots hold soup made from disgusting things.

Isa 65:5  They say, ‘Keep your distance, don’t come near me, because I am holier than you.’ These are smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all day!

Isa 65:6  See, it is written before me; I will not be silent until I repay them; I will repay them to the full,

Isa 65:7  your own crimes and those of your ancestors together,” says Adonai. “They offered incense on the mountains and insulted me on the hills. First I will measure out their wages and then repay them in full.”

Isa 65:8  Here is what Adonai says: “As when juice is found in a cluster of grapes, and people say, ‘Don’t destroy it, there is still some good in it,’ so I will do likewise for the sake of my servants, and not destroy them all.

Isa 65:9  I will bring forth descendants from Ya`akov, heirs of my mountains from Y’hudah; my chosen ones will possess them, and my servants will live there.

Isa 65:10  The Sharon will be a pasture for flocks, the Akhor Valley a place for cattle to rest, for my people who have sought me.

Now take particular notice of verse 11…

Isa 65:11  “But as for you who abandon Adonai, who forget my holy mountain, who prepare a table for Gad, a god of luck, and fill bowls of mixed wine for Meni, a god of destiny

Now look at verse 12…

Isa 65:12  I will destine you to the sword, you will all bow down to be slaughtered; because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear, but did what was evil from my point of view and chose what did not please me.”

Isa 65:13  Therefore this is what Adonai Elohim says: “My servants will eat, while you go hungry; my servants will drink, while you go thirsty. My servants will rejoice, while you will be ashamed.

Isa 65:14  Yes, my servants will sing for joy from their hearts, but you will cry out from the pain in your heart and howl from an anguished spirit.

Isa 65:15  My chosen will use your name as a curse—’May Adonai Elohim strike you dead!’ But to his servants he will give another name.

Isa 65:16  Thus someone on earth who blesses himself will bless himself by the God of truth, and someone on earth who swears an oath will swear by the God of truth; for past troubles will be forgotten, hidden from my eyes.

From the KJV:

Isa 65:11  But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop,H1409  and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.H4507


Troop H1409 : Gad, a god of luck

Number H4507 : Meni, a god of destiny


H1409   (Strong)



From H1464 (in the sense of distributing); fortune: – troop.

Total KJV occurrences: 1


H4507   (Strong)



From H4487; the Apportioner, that is, Fate (as an idol): – number.

Total KJV occurrences: 1

Gad and Meni

The gods of fate and fortune = The gods of ‘luck’.
Are you still sure you want to keep bidding people ‘Good luck’ and saying how ‘lucky’ you/they are??
By saying those things you are ignoring Yehovah and giving thanks to the god of luck and cursing yourself with your own mouth as you do it.


Now lets have a look at some of Australia’s recent history and some of the significant decisions that have been made. I noticed that in the US the people who are pro and anti certain policies are very vocal about their stance. So much so that there are violent clashes on the streets between said factions. But in Australia, although there are rallies, protests and demontrations, things here are decidedly docile by comparison. As if they are drinking too much floride, they are noisy in their protests but once a decision has been made and the law changed… life goes back to normal. But a new normal. Prayer removed from Parliament, abortion legalised, marriage equality and euthanasia.

Abortion bill introduced as protests rage outside NSW parliament | Nine News Australia

An historic bill to decriminalize abortion has been introduced to the New South Wales parliament, met today with a standing ovation.

It doesn’t matter how much a government decriminalizes murder. It’s still murder! And still punishable by death. The terms of Yehovah’s Covenant are clear…

Lev 20:2  Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

Lev 20:3  And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

Lev 20:4  And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

Lev 20:5  Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

Abortion legalized in Queensland after historic vote in Parliament

Nineteenth-century laws making abortion illegal in Queensland have been scrapped, in one of the state’s biggest legislative reforms.

The Government’s controversial plan to decriminalize pregnancy termination passed through state parliament with a comfortable margin of 50 votes to 41.

The laws mean abortion will be available, on request, at up to 22 weeks’ gestation.

It also allows an abortion to take place after 22 weeks if the medical practitioner performing the termination has consulted with a second medical practitioner and both agreed that “in all the circumstances” the abortion should be performed.

A state of emergency was declared on Feb. 6, two days after the Pigeon Valley Fire began near the city of Nelson. As of Monday, the blaze was still scorching the island’s arid countryside, but as firefighting conditions improved, around 3,000 evacuated residents were allowed to return home.

Since taking over the role in November last year, Labour’s Trevor Mallard has dropped any reference to Jesus in the prayer which opens the start of every session.

Hundreds of people marched to Parliament today calling for reform of New Zealand’s abortion laws, as Cabinet prepares to consider a bill that would remove abortion from the Crimes Act.

Can Ardern Successfully Decriminalize Abortion in New Zealand?
New Zealand’s Parliament voted overwhelmingly last month to advance a bill that would decriminalize abortion and loosen restrictions on the procedure. Under current law, women can only obtain an abortion in New Zealand if they receive approval from two doctors, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern promised to change that while campaigning in 2017. The bill must pass two more rounds of voting before it can become law.

Yanshu Huang: The criminal status of abortion in New Zealand has its origins in the British colonial era. English law, much of which was retained in New Zealand’s legal system after independence in the early 20th century, historically categorized abortion as a criminal offense.


New Zealand had something very significant happen this year. A terrible incident took place in Christchurch. But what was worse than the murder of citizens, was how New Zealand responded to that incident. There are many ways to react to a situation such as this, but bowing to Islam has got to be one of the most abhorrent reactions possible.

Dan 9:11  Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse* is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

*curse H423   (Strong)



From H422; an imprecation: – curse, cursing, execration, oath, swearing.

Total KJV occurrences: 35

Say it out loud… alah is the curse of Yehovah’s blood Covenant.

Christchurch gunman attacks Mosque.
What we know: How the New Zealand terror attack unfolded
Fifty people were killed and 50 others wounded in a terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, police announced Sunday.
The unprecedented mass shootings were carefully planned, and have shocked the usually peaceful nation
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the attack on Friday as one of her country’s “darkest days.” She said that the suspects held “extremist views” that have no place in New Zealand or anywhere else in the world.

New Zealand parliament pays tribute to Christchurch victims
MPs in New Zealand’s parliament have paid tribute to the victims of the Christchurch terror attacks this afternoon, opening the day’s session with a Muslim prayer.

New Zealand bowed to, and gave honour to, alah the curse. And in doing so they have cursed the nation.

Exo 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,

>>>> visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;<<<<<

The Muslim call to prayer sounded out over Christchurch and around New Zealand on Friday, as thousands gathered to remember the 50 people killed by a lone gunman at two mosques a week ago.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joined about 20,000 people standing quietly at Hagley Park, in front of the Al Noor mosque where most of the victims were killed during Friday prayers last week.

New Zealand mourns with you. We are one,” she said in a short speech, followed by two minutes of silence.

New Zealand unites in prayer one week after shooting
New Zealanders gathered today for nationwide prayers to mark one week since shootings at two mosques in Christchurch killed 50 worshippers. “New Zealand mourns with you. We are one,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a short speech, followed by two minutes of silence.

Lev 26:25  And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

Lev 26:33  And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

Deu 32:41  If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

Pro 8:36  But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.


Exo 20:13  Thou shalt not kill.

This includes the unborn, aged and sick. It’s up to Yehovah when we take our last breath … anything before that is murder and further brings the death penalty of the Covenant upon us.

Gen 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.

Exo 21:12  He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

Lev 24:17  And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.

End of Life Choice Bill

This bill gives people with a terminal illness the option of requesting assisted dying.


Gen 13:13  But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Gen 19:24  Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Gen 19:25  And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

Jud 1:7  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

New Zealand parliament breaks into song after illegalizing gay marriage – video

New Zealand becomes the first country in the Asia Pacific to legalize same sex marriage. The public gallery in parliament breaks into song following the vote, singing the traditional Maori love song Pokarekare Ana. New Zealand is now the 13th country to legalize gay marriage, after Uruguay passed its law earlier in April.

Isaac Newton said:

“What goes up, must come down.”  and   “To each and every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”


Our actions and decisions, regarding Yehovah and His Covenant, determine the response and reaction metered to us.

If we ignore His instructions and thereby demonstration our hate for Yehovah the equal and opposite reaction is…

Terror, fire, earthquakes, severe weather, floods, pestilence, famine, disease and war.

But if we demonstrate our love for Him by our obedience to His Covenant instructions… then the blessings of rain in season, pestilence free crops, plentiful crops and healthy livestock, good health and peace; are ours.

We must choose wisely.

Deu 30:19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Deu 30:20  That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.



  1. Pauline Reardon-Benjes

    Shabbat shalom everyone,
    Just a quick update… today I was blocked from a weather page on Facebook. It’s called Weather Obsessed. They post really interesting images, videos and news about the weather in Australia. Today a post was made, which predicted a heatwave that is expected to be in Western Australia this weekend but the winds are likely to push the heat towards the east coast, which is where Sydney, Brisbane and the fires are. This will bring more dry air to our states and is likely to increase the potential of more fire. In the comments below the post, people’s comments were mocking, saying fairly typical things like… ‘It’s summer, what do you expect’ and ‘Nothing new’. I shared a Scripture. Boy! Didn’t that bring out the haters! For the first time in a very long time, I was told … ‘Just shut up!’. Another said ‘Right, so god the father, who loves us all, is boiling us alive so he (a bloke) can come and rapturously rescue the faithful?”.
    I answered that person and pointed out that the rapture was a lie and that the church had misrepresented the God of the Bible. I also quoted Isaiah 66:15-17 which brought this next comment in response… “How comforting for you to know all this. but it’s a very whacky god you describe.” Then another chimed in… “Thor will save us! Bring on the Thunder.”
    There were more comments, but I only took screenshots of these ones. After that Weather Obsessed blocked me.
    What can I say? It was a modern-day stoning. If they’d had stones they would have thrown them. I’m feeling very blessed to receive such attention. But there is much worse to come though, eh?!
    Mat 10:21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
    Mat 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    • Lidija Rybak

      Hi Pauline!
      My name is Lidija and I live in Australia just like you. I agree with you that it does matter to do Yehovah’s covenant and turn away from our traditions and worldly celebrations like Christmas. The more time goes bye the more I’m starting to hate that time of year. It’s really turned into a hype of Santa Clause and presents. Even on the light fm radio the were talking about how some families cannot effort to give their children presents for Christmas and how the radio station is raising money to give family this gift of Christmas…and listening to it in my car on my way to work I just thought to myself: who cares about presents…isn’t it Yeshua who really matters?! Anyway it is very sad how “Christ” is being overlooked in that word “Christmas” and even though it’s not His birthday on that day nor did He command us to celebrate His birthday at all, it would be nice at times to hear and see the focus on Him at least at that time of year rather than on having holidays as you say and giving presents. Lots of times going to church is a habit at that time for a lot of people but they don’t really grasp the incredible gift and privilege we’ve been given through the death and resurrection of our beautiful Saviour.
      I thank you also for sharing all the videos about the various sins this government has lead us into like homosexual marriage, abortion and euthanasia. It’s not a surprise being we really are irradicating Yehovah more and more from our country, for getting that even the constitution was built on the ten commandments themselve. How ironic that we swear on the Bible at court when most of the population probably don’t even open that book. I must say I have prayed, wept and cried for this country and the people and have had various spiritual encounters where Yehovah revealed what will come but now I have hardly got anymore words to pray than these:”Heavenly Father, in Your judgement remember Your mercy.” And that’s it.
      What else can I possibly pray?!
      I also thank you for the Scripture about luck, I didnt have that revelation so it is good to know that even that is written in the word. I do avoid saying good luck but I admit that occasionally it slips out of my mouth but now I will be careful not to speak these words anymore.
      I commend you for sharing the truth about the weather catastrophes on that website and no surprises about some of the comments. They’re basically the same over and over. Like it says in Revelations:”Anyone who has an ear let him hear.” It’s refreshing and encouraging to read that you feel blessed having so much attention through the comments despite them being negative. A perfect example of a good attitude. Amen. Keep up the faith and good work. Bless you for all the detailed research and may Yehovah continue to give you strength and renew your youth like eagles as you as i t on Him and do His will. Amen.
      Hi Joseph!
      I want to tell you how much I appreciate and value your magnificent effort of research of the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles over the years. You gave a truly unique ministry and all glory to Yehovah that He has equipped you with resilience and endurance to keep teaching this truth despite all the persecution which I can only imagine what you must be facing at times. I have known about you for about two years now but it wasn’t until about three weeks ago that I started watching more of your videos to understand more about the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles. Every time I watch a video I have aha moments saying how it makes perfect sense what you’re teaching and my eyes are being opened more and more to deeper truths and mysteries of Yehovah’s covenant. I also pray for you and your wife to recover fast and to go back to the routine you had before so more people can be blessed through your ministry. I would honestly love to go to the real My. Sanai location but I simply don’t have the finances so unless Yeshovah provides me with a big lump sum I will just read about it and watch the videos you posted two weeks ago. It would definitely be something on my bucket list too. I will also go back to that link to see how I can contribute in avoiding that the sites will vanish as they plan to build a massive city there. What a loss that would be to mankind…
      I also want to support you financially Jo so I will order some of your material very soon. I want to have something in my hands to look up when I have a question in my m kind or from someone else.
      Anyway thank you again for your commitment to what Yehovah has called you to do on this earth and may your blessing be beyond His riches so His Name can be glorified in all the earth. Amen.
      Shalom from Lidija from Melbourne, Australia

        Shalom Lidija
        Thank you for your kind message. You’re welcome, I hope that all the information will be helpful to you when you are talking with others. Yes, the radio is a problem. I have to admit that I don’t listen to the radio anymore, not even in the car… unless I’m not diving. I find the content to be heavily ladened with anti-Bible philosophies, adulterous temptations and paganism. It turns my stomach and makes my head hurt. I have little tolerance for it anymore.
        I understand what you’re saying about prayer: ”Heavenly Father, in Your judgement remember Your mercy.” I have the same problem. I seem to have run out of words and it’s my spirit/ruach that is constantly groaning.
        Regarding Messiah’s birthday… We celebrate His birthday on Yom Teruah.
        Thank you for your words of blessing. May Yehovah also be with you and may He bless us all with wisdom and endurance.

    – – – Thank you Joe DuMond and for your input Pauline about our country Australia. A few days ago we had a fire at South Tamborine, which was not very far from home, but it was brought under control. The firefighters are doing all they can do, they are working very long hours, and are very tired. – – – Have a Great Sabbath everyone. – – –

    • Pauline

      Amain, they sure are George. But they aren’t mighty enough to withstand Yehovah. We have been praying for people like you. Those who keep Torah and those who are seeking Him and those that He is calling. I nearly lost my life, some years ago… then I realized He was calling and I needed to stop sinning. May Yehovah call millions and millions to Him and may they all take action to be obedient to His Covenant.

    Excellent article Pauline. Great job of pulling this all together! You know I use to wonder who was worse. USA is the worse of all. No Canada is. No Australia is. No Israel is. Bottom line is they are all brothers and there descendants all seem to be equally evil and equally blinded and deaf. In Eqypt, YHVH blinded and hardened Pharaoh to accomplish His purpose. He turned his heart over to what he was already hardened into believing. Too blind to see what was happening. Most of the Egyptians were likewise. Now we see it before our eyes.
    “they all want to blame someone else… it’s the Government’s fault… it’s the Greenie’s fault… it’s God’s fault.”
    Sorry to correct you, but according to OUR expert sources, climate problems are Trump’s fault. You name it, it is Trump’s fault. If it happened or started before Trump, then it is the “far right” and their beliefs. lol.
    Yes, it makes me sick to see how people around the world are this:
    Isa_37:29  “Because your rage against Me and your pride have come up to My ears, I shall put My hook in your nose and My bridle in your lips, and I shall turn you back by the way which you came.
    Hab_1:15  The wicked foe has pulled all of them up with a hook, caught them in his net, and gathers them in his dragnet. Therefore he rejoices and exults.
    They are led by a hook. They are brainwashed to whatever “the giants” in gov’t or media tell them. They have lost all ability to reason or think. Has the prior 10 years of texting drained all brain matter from their heads? Has 25 years of the advantages for diversity brainwashed them so they can’t even accept the color of their own skin? White male senators calling white males evil. And YET, these same people lift up a white male for president. And AOC, who condemns white males, is voting for Sanders as she will get a prominent position in his gov’t. So now, white males are okay in this case.
    And this is a legitimate disease now. This is the state of people in the USA.

    Trump’s “lack of political will” is making “climate anxiety” worse for many people, CNN reported Tuesday, citing experts. One professor claimed a student spent two hours crying after learning about global warming.

    Another article was about therapy dogs being allowed in COLLEGE classrooms. Next will be on the job therapy jobs.
    I wrote on FB a couple of weeks ago about that little Swedish twit coming into my conservative Eastern Iowa town (a liberal college town among students). The City Counsel gave in to her threats against them. Another twit who THINKS she is saving the planet. From what I ask? They are utterly brainwashed to the lies of climate change.
    They condemn capitalists and their schemes without realizing it is Al Gore and big banks (and others) that reap billions off this scheme.
    Their right hand doesn’t talk to their left hand. Nothing in the middle.
    They are as deceived as Egypt under the plagues.
    People are hardened to believe what they believe and truth is not able to seep through.
    Hate speech is everywhere. Everyone is upset about something to the point one can’t talk anymore.
    I asked a person from Denmark, I believe, what it was like there. He said everyone looks down and doesn’t speak out of fear of offending someone. This pretty much sums up life for Christians in Arab lands. Don’t look or talk in case a hate crime is leveled against you or blasphemy charge.
    I agree with you Pauline. Very hard when no one is interested.
    NO one is willing to even question if the Rapture is a lie.
    Full speed ahead in trusting in their church pastor and faith in Jesus to rapture them out.
    Curses are gone. That is OT. Therefore the curses are climate change pure and simple.
    As I watch TV at night (trying to go to sleep) every TV show is written to address the brainwashing.
    Every medical show contains 1-3 topics of the need for assisted suicide, the need for medicare for all, and the hardship of illegals and gays in this country.
    Every other show promotes abominations and shows the hardship of illegals.
    This new season of shows is just over the top in brainwashing tactics.
    And I just posted something today about the crop loss here in Iowa and Minnesota. SO close. They were ready to start picking when snow occurred which took a week to dry out and warm up again. Then they started to pick again on Sunday and Artic freeze came in. It’s over. Thousands of acres of corn in the fields from Iowa to MN. Lost income for this year and next year’s planting.
    And THESE are generally Republicans / conservative farmers. BUT, ignorant of Torah.
    The newspapers attribute it to Climate Change and “Mother Nature”. Makes me Sick!!!!

    • Joseph F. Dumond

      Interesting about the big freeze and the loss of crops. Much of this area was flooded in the great flood of the Mississippi Valley was it not?

      • Jan

        Eastern Iowa where I am located now was flooded a few years ago by the Iowa River. And Cedar Rapids by the Cedar River. And Davenport earlier this year, by the Mississippi. A lot of towns are located on major rivers throughout Iowa. And yes, the great Mississippi flood of decades ago. The Mississippi is 36 miles East of me.
        The Des Moines area had one section flooded last year.
        A great flood buried Des Moines back in 1993. Only one way into the city and that was my area. All other directions were buried under water. That was when I met President Clinton. lol. I wouldn’t cross the street for him now.
        Rivers coming out of Canada contribute to the flooding of all these rivers in Des Moines. Two major rivers run through downtown Des Moines. Yes, it is Canada’s fault. lol.
        THIS year is the FIRST year that I recall major crop loss. NOT just one area. ALL of Iowa and ALL of Minnesota. Thousands of acres. Western Iowa never even got crops planted. They have had THREE flooding episodes this year. Iowa’s western border is another river.
        This time last week I thought the Iowa crops were going to be saved. Some farmers had started to pick and the crops are dry and ready. THEN the ice cold and a lot of snow hit a DAY EARLY and all was lost. It is absolutely devastating to the farmers.
        CLIMATE CHANGE and MOTHER NATURE is all you hear.
        (this is national)
        So far this year, producers have reported they were prevented from planting on nearly 20 million acres, a modern record. Indemnities from crop insurance have reached almost $6 billion this year, with more than $3.9 billion of that going to producers unable to plant because of flooding or excess moisture.
        This was back in May 2019 in Des Moines.
        This is western Iowa
        This is Minnesota now
        I don’t find anything in the news yet about Iowa and MN losses for this current snow this week. Still figuring I guess. My doctor in southern MN expounded on how hard the ground is frozen and I know from the newspaper there, they are having trouble getting propane to even dry the picked corn.
        Propane shortage in Iowa and MN
        I know Trump is giving crop insurance to cover some of the problems, but that was mostly directed at spring flooding / late planting.

    Great article what is raising thè question which way we should choose to serve Yehovah instead of the many other variants, people, May think. But what I am really curious about is the following. Here in messianic movements people of the community do drink and eat with there Family members with Christmas as long you don’t give it any religious meaning you’re safe they say. But I have had dreams about me walking alone in the Street while families were celebrating Christmas. And now I am reading this whole article and am reading what I have read myself in thè Bible about eating at thè wrong table. And my question is how do I save God’s glory when at school my little girl is been brainwashed by all of this Idolatry. Here in the Netherlands we also celebrate st. Nicholas a catholic Saint holiday. In October already everything is in store. I do tell the truth about it… But still, I cannot get away from it… because especially because of school that is working with this theme constantly including halloween. I try not to give it much attention at home. I do will pray for all of this horryfying events around the world and hope God will be merciful to the people who got his heart with Him and try to obey the commandments. Shabbat shalom and be safe. Greetings from Zebulon

      Hi Janet, I am from and live in a Caribbean island called Sint Maarten/Saint Martin. I live on the French side of the island, a few years ago, a little before I began my quest to the Truth, I really took stock of the impact of secularism in many aspects. My biggest worry was my children, how do I protect them from the worldly influence, the stupidity of the mass mindset etc.,? How do I promote sound practices in their lifes? That was the moment I decided to seriously consider homeschooling. I began to think about it and what it would mean for my life (I had a full time job and, thank Yah, my mother was my primary baby-sitter, but she was doing that for my then 2 year old). Upon discussing education with a friend , she opened up about an online school she had found. After giving it some thought, I decided to try it. It has been now about 3 years that my kids are homeschooled. They occasionally go to a learning center which doesn’t ascribe to secular celebrations. I have 3 kids in my yohngest has never been in a school. The year I began homeschooling formally, I also decided to be self-employed. Up to a few months ago, i use to work a lot. My field of work allows me to keep my kids with me if necessary so it works out for me. But I have decided, after discussion and debates with my partner, to lessen the time I spent out of our home. So I now work part time and mostly in the afternoons, which allows him to be home with the children. It’s not always easy but I do not regret the choice I made, it lessens our worry as to what impacts our children life. We have a lot of family time and it’s totally worth it. It is a daily learning path though, byt you can correct things as you go. We keep YHWH’s commandments and Messiah’s teaching at the forefront of our life. I choose to use an online school Instead of strict homeschooling because of my family set-up at the time. Do pray and ask YHWH to lead you to the right decision and solution for you and your loved ones. Shabbat shalom.

    • Pauline

      Shalom Janet
      From one Zebulonite to another… Come out of her my people… Out of the UN, out of the Catholic Church, out of pagan traditions and out of the schools that teach it. Do the best you can to teach your children the truth… that may mean homeschooling. But what better way is there for a Torah parent to uphold Yehovah’s instruction to teach the children? If I had my time again as a parent of young children, I would homeschool them. But they are now grown and have to make their own decisions. I praise Yehovah that one of them has repented back to Yehovah’s Torah.
      May Yehovah bless you with wisdom in these matters.
      Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
      Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
      Deu 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
      Deu 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
      Deu 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
      Deu 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

    Despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1962 ruling making it unconstitutional to pray in schools, when I was in the first grade (1966 – 1967) my public school teacher (a strict Sunday-Go-To-Meeting Baptist) had the entire class stand and pray before we went to lunch – – not once or twice, but EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL DAY! Having grown up in what was once a God-fearing small community in North Carolina, no one (not the school faculty, not the parents, or the students, nor the locals) ever complained. Though they worshipped on the wrong day of the week, at least the people stood for something, but those days have long-since passed.

    Greetings family,
    I enjoyed this week’s article a great deal as always. I just want to comment on last week’s comments. They were outstanding. I didn’t read most of them until today. Wow. The brethren are being given astounding gems to share. Thank you to all for sharing such deep thoughts with the rest of us.

    Hi Bertina,
    thankyou so much for your reply, you got this al figured out and respect the way you live it. I know your place, i have a familiar family living at St. Maarten, what a coincidence isn’t it? My daughter, i have 1 kid is in a special school for her autism, she inheritate my own disorder. A simple change is for us sometimes like moving a mountain, and sometimes i just fail and stay with my normal routines. But my heart was catched by this knowledge some how, and i know deep down that all of this crazyness in the world is because of making the wrong choices as a people. And many never learn from it, i am putting my effort and power to understand whats it all about. And i have baptized myself to embrace my faith completely, i was raised catholic… I want to reach this in my possibilities, but I am thinking every day how i should do it. My own resolvement is in completely starting from zero without the influences of traditions of men… I will pray for you and your family, like i pray for all of my brothers and sisters… Although i never find myself worthy enough to be an accepted child for YHWH, because of my mistakes i make sometimes…. My name is still the meaning of Gods grace, shalom and thankyou for your advice.
