Chasing After Visions and Dreams

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 Royal Family of Yehovah,


Shabbat Zoom Meeting

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

What are we doing and why do we teach this way?

We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.

The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.

Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.

Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.

Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teach you and encourage you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.

We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable to explain why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.

We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

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

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

Sabbath January 22,  2022, the room will be open at 12:30 PM Eastern with singing and prayers until about 1:15 PM. You are all welcome to join and watch. It is not recorded. We will have our afternoon service after this. You are welcome to come and join us before during and after we are off the air.

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

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion

If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to January 22, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about

Exodus 24

Isaiah 34-36

Ps 140-143

John 12

If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.


We Have A New Interview

We did an interview a couple of weeks ago on The Weird Christian podcast show with Samuel Delgado. He just posted it today as I go to post this Newsletter. I felt it was a very good interview and we were able to present our teachings in a way so that the Christians could understand. Do tune in to it and share it.


World News

Last year we did an interview with Mark Webb and Cyrus Harding. Cyrus kept looking for something to happen from Russia and the Ukraine. Previously he was expecting his lunar readings to have something to do with China, when in fact what it was was the start of COVID in 2019. His last reading for November again was not Ukraine but Omicron.

Cyrus’s cycle was to end about the new moon at the end of this month if my memory serves me correctly. Take another look at the headlines this week.

China, Russia block US bid to sanction North Koreans at UN

Stuck in perilous moment’: Doomsday Clock holds at 100 seconds to midnight

Biden Expects Russia to ‘Move In’ on Ukraine; Warns of Sanctions

Iran Nears an Atomic Milestone


Passover 2022

We have posted the dates for Passover 2022 on our web site and the rest of the year. We have assumed there wil be an Adar bet this coming month. On Wednesday, February 2, 2022 we expect to see the new moon to begin either the 13th month or the 1st month of the next year. That evening our zoom room will be open as we watch for the New Moon locally. We will already have the news from Israel by then. You are all welcome to join us then about 5 or 6 central time.

 


I Will Not Keep Silent

When I first set out and created this website in 2006, I had picked this scripture as the motto of the website. It was part of my prayer that first year in 2005 as I stood above the Gihon Spring.

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. – Isaiah 62:1

Zion’s Coming Salvation

Isa 62:1  For Zion’s sake I will not be silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until its righteousness goes out as brightness, and her salvation as a burning lamp.

Isa 62:2  And the nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; and you will be called by a new name, which the mouth of Jehovah will name.

Isa 62:3  You also will be a crown of glory in the hand of Jehovah, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

Isa 62:4  You will no more be called Forsaken; nor will your land any more be called Desolate; but you will be called My Delight is in her, and your land, Married; for Jehovah delights in you, and your land is married.

Isa 62:5  For as a young man marries a virgin, so will your sons marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

Isa 62:6  I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, who will not always be silent all the day nor all the night; you who remember Jehovah, do not be silent.

Isa 62:7  And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Isa 62:8  Jehovah has sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of strangers will not drink your wine for which you have labored.

Isa 62:9  But its gatherers will eat it and praise Jehovah; and they who collected it will drink it in My holy courts.

Isa 62:10  Pass! Pass through the gates; prepare the way of the people. Raise up! Raise up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the peoples.

Isa 62:11  Behold, Jehovah has sent a message to the end of the earth, Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.

Isa 62:12  And they will call them, The Holy People, The Redeemed of Jehovah; and you will be called, Sought Out, a city not forsaken.

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. – Isaiah 62:1

It was Benjamin Netanyahu who became the ninth prime minister of Israel from 1996 to 1999 and from 2009 to 2021, who said this prayer in a speech.

He stated this prayer at the UN in a great speech which I encourage you all to watch. It is from 34:34 until the end that he says the prayer I am referring to.

Benjamin Netanyahu: Le ma’an Zion lo ekhesheh, u’l’ma’an Yerushalayim lo eshkot. (For Zion’s sake I will not be silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest. Isaiah 62:1)

I have a homework assignment for you all to do. As you read all of Isaiah 62 focus in on verse 10. Read each word and what it means in Hebrew and pray for understanding. This is such a remarkable scripture.

Do you have eyes to see? Are you aware of the things Yehovah spoke to you today? You read it for yourselves and see what you are told. You do not need me to interpret it for you. Leave a comment after your done.

Isa 62:10  Go through, H5674  go through H5674  the gates; H8179  prepare H6437  ye the way H1870  of the people; H5971  cast up, H5549  cast up H5549  the highway; H4546  gather out H5619  the stones; H4480 H68  lift up H7311  a standard H5251  for H5921  the people. H5971

Isa 62:11  Behold, H2009  the LORD H3068  hath proclaimed H8085  unto H413  the end H7097  of the world, H776  Say H559  ye to the daughter H1323  of Zion, H6726  Behold, H2009  thy salvation H3468  cometh; H935  behold, H2009  his reward H7939  is with H854  him, and his work H6468  before H6440  him.

Isa 62:12  And they shall call H7121  them, The holy H6944  people, H5971  The redeemed H1350  of the LORD: H3068  and thou shalt be called, H7121  Sought out, H1875  A city H5892  not H3808  forsaken. H5800

As I stood there in 2005, on my first trip to Israel, on the last day there, as I stood above the Gihon spring I said to Yehovah that if He would teach me His truths I would speak about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years which I had just learned about that year. I said to Him here I am send me. So along with Isaiah 62:1 I also made it my motto or mission to keep Isaiah 6:8 but I was not aware of the rest of those passages at that time.

Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord

Isa 6:1  In the year that King Uzziah died I then saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.

Isa 6:2  Above it stood the seraphs; each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

Isa 6:3  And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of Hosts; the whole earth full of His glory.

Isa 6:4  And the doorposts moved at the voice of the one who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Isa 6:5  Then I said, Woe is me! For I am undone; for I ama man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of Hosts.

Isa 6:6  Then one of the seraphs flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, snatched with tongs from the altar.

Isa 6:7  And he laid it on my mouth and said, Lo, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.

Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord

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

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

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

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

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

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

Since 2005 I have done my job and I have shared the scriptures that proven when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are and the prophecies they reveal. I have presented you with scripture after scripture and facts, artifacts and historical facts which anyone can double-check and prove. Anyone can duplicate what I have shown you.

I have provided you with the books to help explain these things, charts and video teachings to help you to understand.

We were the only ones to foretell you of the coming Plague of COVID. We shared this in our video from 2008 with the Prophecy Club. We did it in our book The Prophecies of Abraham. And we showed you in our charts how it was to come in the 3rd and 4th Sabbatical Cycles as it did for the last 6 Jubilee cycles.

We also told you that we expected war to come starting in 2020 as well. But the bombs did not drop and many have left us not believing the rest of the Jubilee teachings.

We have been in a constant battle with the brethren who have a great desire for secret knowledge or Conspiracy teachings. We attacked this subject in our article on January 23, 2016. This was way before there was ever COVID.

The Great Falling Away & The Flat Earth Lie

We again attacked this same sort of thing only by then it was in another form of whether or not to get Vaccinations. Our article was posted on October 9, 2021. Up until 2020, the brethren were taking or getting Flu shots each year, having Chemo or radiation Therapy if they contracted Cancer. If they were in an auto accident and needed a blood transfusion they got one. If they had a headache they took aspirin or if their doctor prescribed some drug to fix an ailment they took it. Or they took insulin shots as they needed them.

The Great Falling Away

But after 2020 they were all experts at the meaning of the word pharmekia in Revelation. And although I and others explained what this word meant and how it was about the mixing of beliefs or religions or the mixing of paganism with Torah as the actual meaning of this word, many cursed me and left again. They joined the cancel culture.

Now we have many brethren who will not talk to those who got the vaccination or those who did not get it. Now we cannot talk about it without it becoming a huge fight so we do not talk about it at all. This is both brethren and in the public as well. Now we get requests for many brethren who are sick and dying and then we are told of those who have died.

Is it a statement on the condition of your faith that you got sick? Why did Yehovah not protect you? Is it a demonstration that you are not faithful if you get sick and die? Why did Yehovah allow them to die? Is it a lack of faith if get the vaccine? Does this show you have no faith in Yehovah?

All of this infighting began because you run to self-proclaiming authorities and become armchair quarterbacks. No one holds their tongues and they all spew out venom, brethren towards brethren. Where is the empathy and concern?

What did Yehshua mean when He said this.

Mat 24:8  All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mat 24:9  Then they will deliver you up to be afflicted and will kill you. And you will be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.

Mat 24:10  And then many will be offended, and will betray one another, and will hate one another.

Mat 24:11  And many false prophets will rise and deceive many.

Mat 24:12  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will become cold.

Mat 24:13  But he who endures to the end, the same shall be kept safe.

The word for iniquity is

G458   (Thayer)    ἀνομία     anomia

Thayer Definition:

1) the condition of without law

1a) because ignorant of it

1b) because of violating it

2) contempt and violation of law, iniquity, wickedness

Part of Speech: noun feminine

I think it is Josephus who says that Jerusalem fell because they did not have love for one another. They kept the Sabbath and the Holy Days using the crescent moon and the barley and I have proof they kept the Sabbatical years at the right time. Yet despite all of this they were still wiped out and scattered in 70 AD and thereafter. Because they did not have love for one another. If you read Josephus you will read how there were three factions in Jerusalem and they themselves killed more Jews than the Romans did afterwards.

We are warned about leaving our first love in Revelation, 2 Timothy and John.

Revelation 2:4-5   (MKJV)
4  But I have against you that you left your first love.

5  Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent.

2Ti 3:1  Know this also, that in the last days grievous times will be at hand.

2Ti 3:2  For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Ti 3:3  without natural affection, unyielding, false accusers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good,

2Ti 3:4  traitors, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

2Ti 3:5  having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these.

Joh 13:34  I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. As I have loved you, you should also love one another.

Joh 13:35  By this all shall know that you are My disciples, if you have love toward one another.

We also wrote you on December 26, 2015, about some of you chasing after those who have dreams and visions. We told you then not to follow them and not to follow me. We told you to follow Yehovah and His scriptures alone. HIS SCRIPTURES ALONE!!!!

This is a Test

But just as before, people did not believe our message about the Jubilee cycles and went after a woman who was giving dreams and visions. The brethren wrote up troves of interpretations about the things they said her dreams meant. Many followed her to central America. I forget her name.

Today we have someone else who has had a dream and many of you. Yes, many of you have written to me and asked me what did I think of the NEWEST PROPHECY. Prophecy???? Really???

It comes from Jim Staley and you can watch it at this link. The transcript is here at this link. In just 8 days over 44,000 of you have flocked to this new “prophecy” to learn more secret information. In the same way, many of you flock to read the Apocryphal books, so you can know everything, and the same way you flock to alternative news sources, you have raced to hear this new “prophecy”. Why? And why do you ask me for my views on it?

Miracle of miracles, Jim has a new teaching out just 4 days later where he goes through line upon line and word upon word about the meaning of his cryptic vision. No, I have not listened to the interpretation. Nor am I about to.

You do not have to look very hard to find other dreams and visions that Jim has on his website. If that is what you want then knock yourselves out.

This is not an attack on Jim Staley. It is a severe criticism of the brethren and their seeking after signs and wonders. It is not about Jims dreams. This critique is about you.

The other day in a dream I had, I farted and as the scent waffled up through the air it became 3 distinct colours. Red Blue and Magenta-yellow-turquoise. (yes in my dream that is one colour…I wonder what it means.) As I thought about what the colours meant and how the smell from each one was intoxicating and yet different, I knew the spirit was upon me. With the spirit’s hand heavy on my shoulders, I awoke to find my wife shaking my shoulders and screaming at me for having pooped in the bed.

I wonder what it means? It means I have become old and need a diaper or to be put in a home for the elderly.

Yes brethren I am being very crass with you because….do you really want me to say it?

Isa 28:5  In that day Jehovah of Hosts shall be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, to the rest of His people,

Isa 28:6  and for a spirit of judgment to him who sits in judgment, and for strength to those who turn back the battle to the gate.

Isa 28:7  But they also have sinned through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way. The priest and the prophet have sinned through drink; they are swallowed up by wine; they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble injudgment.

Isa 28:8  For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness; no place is clean.

Isa 28:9  Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Those weaned from the milk and drawn from the breasts.

Isa 28:10  For precept must be on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little;

Isa 28:11  for with stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to this people.

Isa 28:12  To whom He said, This is the rest; cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing. Yet they were not willing to hear.

Isa 28:13  But the Word of Jehovah was to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken and snared and taken.

You might want to pay attention to the rest of Isaiah. Who are you to listen to? What words should you heed?

Isa 28:14  Therefore hear the Word of Jehovah, scornful men who rule this people in Jerusalem.

Isa 28:15  Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and we have made a vision with hell; when the overwhelming rod shall pass through, it shall not come to us; for we have made lies our refuge, and we have hidden ourselves under falsehood,

Isa 28:16  therefore so says the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I place in Zion a Stone for a foundation, a tried Stone, a precious Cornerstone, a sure Foundation; he who believes shall not hurry.

Isa 28:17  Also I will lay judgment to the line, and righteousness to the plummet; and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

Isa 28:18  And your covenant with death shall be wiped out, and your vision with hell shall not stand;when the overwhelming rod shall pass through, then you shall be beaten down by it.

Isa 28:19  From the time that it goes out it shall take you; for morning by morning it shall pass over, by day and by night; and it shall be only a terror to understand the message.

Isa 28:20  For the bed is shorter than one can stretch himself on, and the cover is narrower than one can wrap himself in.

Isa 28:21  For Jehovah shall rise up as in Mount Perazim; He shall be angry as in the valley of Gibeon, so that He may do His work, His strange work; and bring to pass His act, His strange act.

Isa 28:22  So then do not be mockers, lest your bands be made strong; for I have heard from the Lord Jehovah of Hosts that a full end is decreed on all the earth.

Isa 28:23  Give ear and hear my voice; listen, and hear my speech.

Isa 28:24  Does the plowman plow all day to sow? Does he open and break the clods of his ground?

Isa 28:25  When he has made the face of it level, does he not cast out the dill and scatter the cummin, and throw in the choice wheat and the chosen barley and the spelt in its border?

Isa 28:26  For his God instructs him to do right; his God teaches him.

Isa 28:27  For the dill is not threshed with a threshing instrument, nor is a cart wheel turned on cummin; but the dill is beaten out with a staff and the cummin with a rod.

Isa 28:28  Bread grain is crushed, but not always does one thresh it with threshing. And he drives the wheel of his cart; and his horses do not beat it small.

Isa 28:29  This also comes out from Jehovah of Hosts, who is wonderful in wisdom, making sound wisdom great.

Go back now to verse 12 and pay attention to the word for rest.

Isa 28:12  To H413  whom H834  he said, H559  This H2063  is the rest H4496  wherewith ye may cause the weary H5889  to rest; H5117  and this H2063  is the refreshing: H4774  yet they would H14  not H3808  hear. H8085

Hn% (Hn%NHh) ac: Guide co: Rest ab: ?: The pictograph n is a picture of a seed representing continuance, the h is a picture of a wall that separates the inside from the outside. Combined these mean “continue outside”. The shepherd would guide his flock to a place of water. Here is water for drinking as well as green grass for pasturing. Once the flock arrives, they are free to rest after the long journey. A guided journey to a place of rest. A sigh of rest. (eng: night – from the German nocht, as the time of rest)

H4496   (Strong)    מְנֻחָה    מְנוּחָה      menûchâh    menûchâh

men-oo-khaw’, men-oo-khaw’

Feminine of H4495; repose or (adverbially) peacefully; figuratively consolation (specifically matrimony); hence (concretely) an abode: – comfortable, ease, quiet, rest (-ing place), still.

Notice the vav is silent and not pronounced. Look in the Hebrew.

Now consider the word for weary

Po% (Po% AhP) ac: Cover co: Wing ab: ?: The wing of a bird that gives flight as well as a covering it and its chicks. (eng: avian – with the exchange of the v and p)

Now notice the second word for rest is the same word as the word for rest before it in the same verse only this word now has a vav

V) Hfn%(Hfn%NWHh) – Rest: [freq. 64] (vf: Paal) |kjv: rest, cease, confederate, down, lay, quiet, remain| {H5117}

But from this rest, you would not hear you would not rest is what he is saying about the word refreshing.

Ocr% (Ocr% RGAh) ac: Stir co: ? ab: Moment: The stirring up of the sea or from a rest. Also a stirring of the eyes in rest or a wink.

af1) Eocrm% (Eocrm% MR-G-AhH) – Repose: In the sense of rest. [freq. 1] |kjv: refreshing| {H4774}

Adam Clarke says;

This is the rest “This is the true rest” – The sense of this verse is: God had warned them by his prophets that their safety and security, their deliverance from their present calamities and from the apprehensions of still greater approaching, depended wholly on their trust in God, their faith and obedience; but they rejected this gracious warning with contempt and mockery.

Because you do not take the rest, the sabbath, the Holy Days, the Sabbatical and Jubilee years seriously. You do not rest on them but are instead involved in stirring up the waters and causing strife you cannot understand the precepts of Yehovah.

Rom 1:21  Because, knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, neither were thankful. But they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22  Professing to be wise, they became fools

Rom 1:23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24  Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.

Rom 1:25  For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

2Th 2:7  For the mystery of lawlessness is already working, only he is now holding back until it comes out of the midst.

2Th 2:8  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming,

2Th 2:9  whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10  and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, (VISIONS) that they should believe a lie,

2Th 2:12  so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.

Yehovah has sent a lying spirit to the people of Israel before. Why did He do it? Could He do it again?

1Ki 22:13  And the messenger that had gone to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets are good to the king with one mouth. Please let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak good.

1Ki 22:14  And Micaiah said, As Jehovah lives, what Jehovah says to me, that I will speak.

1Ki 22:15  So he came to the king. And the king said to him, Micaiah, Shall we go against Ramoth in Gilead to battle, or shall we hold off? And he answered him, Go and prosper. For Jehovah shall deliver it into the hand of the king.

1Ki 22:16  And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure you that you tell me nothing but what istrue, in the name of Jehovah?

1Ki 22:17  And he said, I saw all Israel scattered on the hills, like sheep that have no shepherd. And Jehovah said, These have no master. Let each man return to his house in peace.

1Ki 22:18  And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell you that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?

1Ki 22:19  And he said, Hear therefore the Word of Jehovah: I saw Jehovah sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right hand and on His left.

1Ki 22:20  And Jehovah said, Who shall entice Ahab that he may go up and fall at Ramoth in Gilead? And one said this way, and another said that way.

1Ki 22:21  And there came forth a spirit and stood before Jehovah and said, I will entice him.

1Ki 22:22  And Jehovah said to him, With what? And he said, I will go forth and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And He said, You shall entice himand succeed also. Go forth and do so.

1Ki 22:23  And now, behold, Jehovah has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets, and Jehovah has spoken evil concerning you.

1Ki 22:24  But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way did the Spirit of Jehovah go from me to speak to you?

1Ki 22:25  And Micaiah said, Behold, you shall see in that day when you shall go into an inner room to hide yourself.

1Ki 22:26  And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king’s son,

1Ki 22:27  and say, So says the king, Put this one in the prison and feed him with bread of affliction and the water of affliction, until I come in peace.

1Ki 22:28  And Micaiah said, If you return at all in peace, Jehovah has not spoken by me. And he said, Listen, O people, all of them!

Why did Yehovah do this?

I say the answer is found back in Exodus. He is testing you.

Exo 16:4  Then Jehovah said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the heavens for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain amount every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My Law or not.

Exo 16:5  And on the sixth day it shall happen, they shall prepare what they bring in. And it shall be twice as much as they gather day by day.

Exodus 15:25   (MKJV)
25  And he cried to Jehovah. And Jehovah showed him a tree. And when he had cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a decree and a law for them, and there He tested them.

Deuteronomy 8:2   (MKJV)
2  And you shall remember all the way which Jehovah your God led you these forty years in the wilderness in order to humble you, to prove you, to know what is in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

Deuteronomy 8:16   (MKJV)
16  who fed you in the wilderness with manna which your fathers did not know, so that He might humble you and so that He might prove you, to do you good in your latter end,

The Sabbath and the Holy Days are a Test. Which Calendar are you goin gto keep. The Barley or Hillel. Conjunction or crescent moon. Enoch, Jubilee, Dead Sea or Lunar Sabbath Calendar, It is all a test to see if you Love Yehovah enough to go after these other calendars or can you prove them false. Which calendar does your prophet keep? The Pope also claims to be a prophet driectly from Peter, should you not follow his admonitions? What about the Rabbi that is head of the Sanhedrin. It is all a test. How do you react and how do you show Yehovah your love? By chasing every thing that comes along?

Are you going to fail the test and rush after visions and the interpretations of dreams or are you going to enter His rest and not stir the waters and ponder the scripture precept upon precept? It may not sound as exciting and thrilling as those imaginations of others, but in the end, our Shepherd Yehovah is leading us to His Mishkan, His Beit, His House, His Temple where we will find the rest spoken of in Hebrews 4. The 7th Millennium. Those stirring up the water in discontent, those bringing in doctrines and things that are not found in scriptures, who cannot read line upon line, will not be allowed inside the Chet, the fence, the Tabernacle of Yehovah and if you are not inside then you will not find the water that nourishes or the green grass to eat and to be content which then gives you the Nun or LIFE.

If only people raced to learn about the Sabbaths, Holy Days and Sabbatical years. If only they sought to keep them at the proper times in unity. If only they were as eager for Yehovah’s truths as they are for men’s imaginations.

Does it say we are to heed those who have visions and dreams? Are we to spend all our time evaluating if they are from Yehovah or not. Are we to dissect the dreams to figure out what secret meaning they may hold because they almost always are cryptic?

No.

We are warned in the last days they would happen. Along with fires that turned the moon to blood and darkened the sun. We have seen this take place even in the past few years and it was not good.

Joe 2:28  And it shall be afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions.

Joe 2:29  And also I will pour out My Spirit on the slaves and on the slave women in those days.

Joe 2:30  And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

Joe 2:31  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah.

Joe 2:32  And it shall be, whoever shall call on the name of Jehovah shall be saved; for salvation shall be in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, as Jehovah has said, and in the remnant whom Jehovah shall call.

I know some of you are now going to quote to me about Peter on Shavuot and the Holy Spirit being poured out. So let’s read it.

Peter’s Sermon at Pentecost

Act 2:14  But Peter, standing up with the Eleven, lifted up his voice and said to them, Men, Jews, and all who dwell at Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to my words.

Act 2:15  For these are not drunk as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day.

Act 2:16  But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel:

Act 2:17  “And it shall be in the last days, says God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

Act 2:18  And in those days I will pour out My Spirit upon My slaves and My slave women, and they shall prophesy.

Act 2:19  And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and miracles on the earth below, blood and fire and vapor of smoke.

Act 2:20  The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord.

Act 2:21  And it shall be that everyone who shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Act 2:22  Men, Israelites, hear these words. Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by powerful works, and wonders and miracles, which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know,

Act 2:23  this One given to you by the before-determined counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken and by lawless hands, crucifying Him, you put Him to death;

Act 2:24  whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.

Act 2:25  For David speaks concerning Him, “I foresaw the Lord always before me, because He is at my right hand, that I should not be moved.

Act 2:26  Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue was glad; and also My flesh shall rest in hope,

Act 2:27  because You will not leave My soul in Hades, nor will You allow Your holy One to see corruption.

Act 2:28  You revealed to Me the ways of life. You will fill Me with joy with Your countenance.”

Act 2:29  Men, brothers, it is permitted to say to you with plainness as to the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

Act 2:30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, He would raise up Christ to sit upon his throne,

Act 2:31  seeing this beforehand, he spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor would His flesh see corruption,

Act 2:32  God raised up this Jesus, of which we all are witnesses.

Act 2:33  Therefore being exalted to the right of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured out this which you now see and hear.

Act 2:34  For David has not ascended into the heavens, but he says himself, “The LORD said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand

Act 2:35  until I place Your enemies as a footstool to Your feet.”

Act 2:36  Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God made this same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Act 2:37  And hearing this, they were stabbed in the heart, and said to Peter and to the other apostles, Men, brothers, what shall we do?

Act 2:38  Then Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Act 2:39  For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Act 2:40  And with many other words he earnestly testified and exhorted, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation.

Act 2:41  Then those who gladly received his word were baptized. And the same day there were added about three thousand souls.

The Fellowship of the Believers

Act 2:42  And they were continuing steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine, and in fellowship and in the breaking of the loaves, and in prayers.

Act 2:43  And fear came on every soul. And many wonders and miracles took place through the apostles.

Act 2:44  And all who believed were together and had all things common.

Act 2:45  And they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, according as anyone had need.

Act 2:46  And continuing with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they shared food with gladness and simplicity of heart,

Act 2:47  praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

I have read this section twice in preparing this article. I do not see one place where we are told to begin to follow those who speak in tongues or those who have dreams and visions. I will read it again, but if you see it then please write me and let me know.

Nope still did not see where we are to investigate, ponder and give weight to those who dream dreams. We are told to repent and be baptized.

The 1st 13 verses tell you this was done in the open and many heard the rush of the spirit and many heard the apostles speaking.

I will concede that Joseph did have dreams and that Yehovah used him in that way. I will also concede that Yehovah used a donkey to speak to a jackass. Can Yehovah do that today? Of course.

But far too many of you want to race to the next new thing the next new secret knowledge that only the insiders know and yet you do not know the scriptures. If I had to examine all those who have sent me their dreams and visions and evaluate them and interpret them, then I would never read the word of Yehovah. I study His words. I do not add to them nor take away from them. Yehovah’s word is the only words yo uare to go by. If Yehovah wants me to know a dream, He can send it directly to me. He does not need to go by some other person.

    simply put, wow. Yehovah has used many different ministries in bringing me here. A little truth here, a little truth there. But in all, there was a nagging issue or teaching that was saying, “ok, something is amiss”. I became exhausted in my faith, read some, pray some, do the best I could with what I knew. After all these “saved” years I figured I just was not one of the “called”, but because my heart was hungry, somehow it will work out. Enter this ditch digger…a ditch digger!!!!??? I sensed a light at the horizon, filling and fueling the hunger. And how? By obeying? Thought I was! An insatiable hunger has taken hold due to the vids and teachings at sightedmoon. There are still times when it seems so hard and daunting, I mean the constant depth of ALL these different things! Not to mention at 64 thought it was a little late to start “again”! Little did I know and now realize, Yehovah has been leading all along, a little here, a little there. Precept atop precept, the veil is lifting! What a freeing yet unmistakably simple, huge undertaking in understanding! OK, need a silent prayer of complete thanksgiving and need of peace in knowledge! Simply spiritually prostate before this gracious, loving, Almighty Creator, long suffering messiah and King! Bless you Yehovah!

      You need to repent and go back to your first love. Who are you to complain about who Yah uses? Like Aaron and Miriam you challenge who Yah uses. Have you gone to Jim Staley first before doing this vulgar newsletter? If not, that would be a start. As a teacher, you must represent Yeshua well. Do you believe this reflects him or your flesh? Think about it. Repent while there is time.

    Hello Joseph,

    I was reading your news letter as far as it got to the part about Jim Stayley and was puzzled that you referred to him having a vision?
    If you had listened, he did not have a vision or dream. He had been in prayer and it was how the holy Spirit was speaking to him.
    He too has been praying about some of the things he had been given and this was in the second video.
    He learned in his prison experience LOVE.
    There are many times when going through your news letters that I feel you lack this, but then I do not really know you. Whilst it is right to speak truth, when it is not done in love it becomes as a clanging cymbal.

    I have purchased two of your books and found them valuable, but I struggle with your news letters at times.

    I came from a very aggressive background and it has been a great struggle to find a more peaceable way of giving information out, so maybe that is why I feel you are harsh.

    With kind regards Sonia

      Last Sabbath, I was in a study with some family and friends a younger person in the group spoke of nephilim in Genesis 6 and how the half-human giants caused the flood. Afterwards, the other adults in the room patted the teenager on the back for such a good summarization of Genesis 6-8.

      Well, I waited a bit for a man in the room to speak up… but, none did. (Nephilim fables are about angels with great big genitals raping women and making babies… totally insane… I don’t know how people who believe fables like that sleep at night.) They started to just move on to studying the first two chapters of the book of John. But, before they did, I interrupted and spoke up to denounce the false teaching of half-human giant nephilim without shaming the teenager in any way, but I did speak boldly that many are deceived by that false teaching and the importance of rejecting false teachings. As an example, I asked the group to name some giants, or great men, in our time… like some of the wealthy men on Wall Street and Hollywood and leaders of various nations… this was done as an example to help the teenager and others understand better. I thought this was a good thing to do.

      After the meeting, I was informed that this behavior of mine could be considered aggressive and harsh as some people in the group might have been offended by my speaking up… that, it’s not nice to speak up on topics that others might have different opinions about. Basically, I was rebuked for having the [testosterone] to speak up. This has annoyed me so much, that I’m taking a week off from studying with them. I don’t want my [testosterone] cut off. They can get by a week without having a scripture teacher like me in the discussion.

      Ironically, the study ended right before the passage in John 2:13-22 where Jesus/Yeshua “cleanses the temple” (ie: takes a big whip and angrily drives money changers out of the Temple). If Jesus/Yeshua were to do something like this in today’s time, I wonder how many would rebuke him for having the [testosterone] to act out.

      This thing that I’m calling [testosterone] is actually called “ZEAL” (see John 2:17 / Psalm 69:9). I called it [testosterone] just to get your attention so you would read my comment (it’s kind of like when Joe title a newsletter recently with the “Mutilation of Uranus” in the title to get you to read it). What you sometimes see Joe displaying is ZEAL. Be glad, be very glad, that Joe does not simply walk away and take time to himself like I sometimes do when people rebuke me for having ZEAL.

      Consider for a moment the influence that our culture is under… Today’s culture simply does not like men to be men. (As a fun example, if you have children who watch Disney movies, ask them to name a strong leading male character… although most every children’s movie out there depicts strong better-than-men female characters, they won’t be able to name a strong male character in modern children’s entertainment.)

      Likewise, today’s lukewarm church does not like ZEAL. Oh, the lukewarm church loves to see men crying like babies at large public meetings… perhaps promising to keep serving their women and church leaders better… but, the church simply does not like men who have Zeal for the Torah.

      Personally, I’m very ok with Joe being a man… with ZEAL. I think Joe needs to feel a bit of that ZEAL to keep on doing what he’s doing.

    Joseph, I agree that it’s pointless to argue about conspiracies. Time will tell. We need to become a family if we have any chance of surviving what is to come. I completely disagree with you on the vaccine. So what? Time will tell. you are anointed, and I may quite likely be wrong. Did we go to the moon? Who the hell cares? We didn’t. LOL.

    My point being is none of us have all the answers and all of us are wrong. We need to accept this (accept each other) and move forwards to hasten HaMashiack.

    The homework is: Us, “the woke”. Matheew 24:45-51 “Who then is a trustworthy and wise servant, whom his master set over his household, to give them food in season? “Blessed is that servant whom his master, having come, shall find so doing. “Truly, I say to you that he shall set him over all his possessions. “But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant shall come on a day when he does not expect it, and at an hour he does not know, and shall cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites – there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    Sincerely,

    Dean

    Dear Mr Dumond,

    we actually fail to see how you on one hand can insist on going by the purity of scriptures but yet
    you also consult mainstream news to edify your teachings and bring in others such as cyrus harding
    and many others you deem suitable to enhance your teachings.
    If your teachings are already verified and fortified by scriptures already, then let them stand on their own
    and there is no need to fortify them with the use of others input or work. Lead by example is what I think
    is lacking. Maybe then, others will see it and know that your words are true and you will not have to get angry
    so often. Cheers and shalom to you and your wife.

      seems to me the vids on astronomy are well explained in the vids! Stated amazement at the correlation of different studies coming together is not using comparisons to prove points. They state that.

    Hi Joe, I see after we chatted and you acquiesced to the fact Jim’s words weren’t NOT a dream here on your newsletter to the world you are again indicating that it was a dream.

    Sad Joe, I’m worried about you.

    Every little detail must be dealt with in truth and not deceit by changing the facts and giving a false witness.

    The truth does not need help with untruth.

    Praying for you brother. I guess I was right that you wouldn’t be able to receive. Oh Joe 🙁

    Here’s a handful false teachings that have misguided people in recent times:

    Nephilim prophecies – the false teaching that man’s seed/dna can be corrupted to make half human half demon people. Sounds stupid, I know… but, very popular. Among the results of this is that many refuse medicine, including vaccines, because they don’t want to catch the mark of the beast from medicine. I personally know someone who recently died because of this, so I am listing this one first.

    Hannukah prophecies – This false teaching takes an ancient Jewish revolt against Antiochus IV and turns it into a prophecy about current times. This is much like calling the signing of the American Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia is a prophecy about the church of Philadelphia in the book of Revelation. A result has been for people to pick up the pagan winter solstice beliefs associated with Hannukah and do them in their own homes and thinking it has a prophetic meaning.

    US President prophecies – It seems that many United States presidents have been labelled as both the Messiah and the Antichrist. A result has not only been division, but people who have brought this idea into their politics have lost credibility with the peers and are less effective witnesses of Christ and His scriptures.

    Mark of the Beast prophecies – Bar chips, chip implants, numbers on your credit card or telephone, secret government forced labor camps, etc — this is the idea that the government is going to trick you or even force you into taking the mark of the beast. A result is that Christians have no idea about the Sabbaths as being the Mark of Yehovah and rejecting His mark results in accepting another.

    From reading some of these comments, the impression comes across that this main point of this newsletter is being missed because people do not like the zeal of the messenger. Let me give you an example from my childhood… when I was growing up, my youth pastor stood up in 1988 and prophesied to the church about a great earthquake coming and that the rapture that was about occur. It did not. You see, he had recently watched a video with Hal Lindsey’s prophecy about the planetary alignment in 1988 and combined that with prophecies from a Nostradamus video. My youth pastor had taken false teachings/prophecies and became a false teacher/prophet himself as a result. This newsletter is giving a recent example and telling very bluntly you not to do the same.

    If anyone has other examples of false teachings/prophecies that they would like to take this opportunity to expose, please reply to this comment.

      I soon as I started keeping the Sabbath in 2005 I learned about the unclean ingredients of vaccines like monkey blood and aluminum and mercury. Would Yehshua allow that stuff in His body? I don’t think so.

      Since we are a body of numerous members isn’t true that certain believers will never keep the Laws of Moses? They just won’t they believe the Laws are unnecessary yet they continue to work in the churches doing things the Bible commands us to do.

      I am all about the ways of Yehovah. I agree that we shouldn’t chase after this guy or that guy etc. I just want the truth.

      Teach on Daniel 8 please ya know truth will be thrown to the ground. Expand.

      Its hard to judge others opinions. Its easy to read the Bible and learn truth from lies.

    While Yah doesn’t typically speak to me using dreams and visions, I need to be careful about dismissing others who Yehovah uses to speak. I should not be so prideful to think that others can’t hear from Yehovah in this way. What we should NOT be doing is chasing after signs and miracles.
