June 28, 2008
Shabbat Shalom Family and Friends,
Last week after I sent out the News Letter I received the following two articles. I include them now for your consideration. Remember what we have been saying. Famines, pestilences and then war, these are in line with Lev 26 which is what we have been teaching in these News Letters. You can read them and others in the forum area of the web site.

Corn Hits record Highs on U.S. floods
Corn rose close to a record after floods in the U.S. Midwest ruined some crops and increased the risk of lower production as global demand for food increases. Some fields in Iowa, the biggest U.S. corn producer, got more than 15 inches (38 centimeters) of rain in the past two weeks â€¦.
Corn futures for December delivery rose 4 cents, or 0.5 percent, to us$7.80 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade, the highest close ever for a most-active contract. …
Floods and severe Midwest storms have killed at least 17 people and forced the evacuations of more than 36,000 Iowa residents. â€¦ River levels will match or beat records set in 1993 for a half-dozen communities along a 60-mile stretch of the Mississippi north of St. Louis over the next three days â€¦.
Crop conditions this month are the worst since 1996, USDA data show, and mirror the deterioration in 1993, the last time widespread flooding reduced yields. ” Domestic corn production will drop 10 percent this year ”
U.S. inventories before the 2009 harvest will total 673 million bushels, representing about 20 days of supplies at current consumption rates. That’
I’ve never seen corn and soybeans look this bad in Iowa, said Chip Flory, editor of the Professional Farmers of America newsletter in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Things are starting to straighten out, but there are more risks for lower yields from hot summer weather or a shortened growing season, he said.

rbS issues global Stock and Credit Crash alert
The royal Bank of Scotland has advised clients to brace for a full- fledged crash in global stock and credit markets over the next three months as inflation paralyzes the major central banks. â€œA very nasty period is soon to be upon usâ€”be prepared,â€ said Bob Janjuah, the bank’s credit strategist.
A report by the bank’s research team warns that the S&P 500 index of Wall Street equities is likely to fall by more than 300 points to around 1,050 by September as â€œall the chickens come home to roostâ€ from the excesses of the global boom, with contagion spreading across Europe and emerging markets.
Such a slide on world bourses would amount to one of the worst bear markets over the last century. â€œI do not think I can be much blunter â€¦.
This is about not losing your money, and not losing your job,â€ said Mr. Janjuah, who became a City star after his grim warnings last year about the credit crisis proved all too accurate. â€œGlobalization was always going to risk putting G-7 bankers into a dangerous corner at some point.
We have got to that point,â€ he said. U.S. Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank both face a Hobsonâ€™s choice as workers start to lose their jobs in earnest and lenders cut off credit. The authorities cannot respond with easy money because oil and food costs continue to push headline inflation to levels that are unsettling the markets.
â€œThe ugly spoiler is that we may need to see much lower global growth in order to get lower inflation,â€ he said. â€œThe Fed is in panic mode. The massive credibility chasms down which the Fed and maybe even the ecb will plummet when they fail to hike rates in the face of higher inflation will combine to give us a big sell-off in risky assets,â€ he said.
Before we get started, I have one very special letter to share.
In the Mail
Hey my Brother,
As you know, I do read your newsletters and for me, they have a lot of insight and meaning when I can get it. What that means is I am at the kindergarten stage of this learning and have to go back a lot to try and figure out what message you’re trying to say.
I read about the lady who was keeping the Sabbath and some other stuff, but she asked if it was enough. What I understood in your answer was she had to also keep the year coming up and that it was not enough. This is kind of tough for someone who is just starting to figure it out and how do we catch up. Am I too far behind and not going to measure up or how do I figure out what the days are and exactly what am I suppose to do on these specific days. For example Saturday is the Sabbath I get that but is tomorrow any particular day? You know that for example next month on a certain day you are to fast or eat special things or do certain things. Could you put it in baby steps for someone like me? Not saying to hold my hand through each step. I know to use my brain and to think, but with all the worlds [screwed up religions] it sometimes gets jumbled.
I truly am scared of not knowing that it is right there in front of me but not able to understand what it is I am looking at. A book for dummies could possibly help if I could go to it to reference what you are talking about in the news letters.
I get some of it when I read it and then skip the parts that I feel are way above my head. I do read those parts but they don’t sink in. It is sort of that way with parts of the bible I do read it but lots of the stuff goes right over my head just like words with nothing.
When I learn sometimes I need to watch one part like their hands and then the next time I need them to do the same thing and I will watch their feet, then they do it again and I will watch the whole thing and then finally I could get it. This is possibly a way for newbies like me to get it.
There is so much info that I get overwhelmed but I do keep reading and know that what I am to learn that day is what I am to learn. I have a private tutor because I can just call you but what about others like me that can’t or don’t know how to tell you that they don’t get it. Just a thought.
Keep writing I am getting some of it and for those who are getting a lot of it Blessings to you, I may be taking baby steps but, at least I am stepping in the right direction. I love that you do this Joe, and am proud that your still true to what you have uncovered and learned. May God continue to bless you and teach you how to teach us, understanding for dummies. Love me Your Sister.
This is a powerful letter to me. It is in fact from my sister. And I love the fact that she is trying to learn. So much of what I am saying is new to her and to some of you as well. She is the first one in my family who is reading and getting some of what I am saying. She knows the curses are coming. I wish I had more of my family interested, but I am happy I have at least one.
To answer her question is not easy. We do have a book for dummies already. It is the bible. We all just need to read it a little bit each day every day. It takes time. None of us will learn it over night. But we must do something to learn. That is we each must read.
Once you are finding your self in agreement with the scriptures, notice I said the scriptures, and not some group or special interest group or me. But once you are interested in the scriptures and agreeing with them then there is something we each must do. That is to be baptized and have hands laid on us asking for the Holy Spirit to come into us. We must ask for this. Once the Holy Spirit is in us it is the Spirit that will reveal those things in the scriptures to us. Then, some how, we begin to see things in a different light. I can not explain it any better than that, at this time. But things are different. I can attest to that.
I was baptized by the pastors of the World wide church of God, back in 1984. I began to learn many things and to obey and keep the Sabbath and Holy Days as they taught. Then in 2004 I confessed my sins, and even my secret sins which I could not shake free of. After this these things of the Jubilee all came together for me. 2005 I began to speak publicly about them, which just so happens to be 40 years before the Jubilee takes place. In 2006 I was re-baptized in the Gihon Spring in Jerusalem under the place where the Temple once stood. I was baptized into the Name of Yeshua, by the Assembly of Yahweh. After this I began to teach in earnest those things I have shared on this web site and in these News Letters. In 2007, I again Mikvahed in the Gihon Spring. A re-cleansing or purification rite. I intend to do the same again this year in Jerusalem in 2008.
It is the Holy Spirit that teaches us.
Mt 28:19 therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Lu 11:13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
Joh 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
Ac 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Ac 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
Ac 5:32 And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Ac 8:17 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Ac 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
Ac 15:8 So God, who knows the heart, acknowledged them by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He did to us,
Ac 19:6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
Eph 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
Tit 3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Psalm 119:172 My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
These are the things that the Holy Spirit brings to the table. It is when we obey Yahweh and keep His commandments that we are considered righteous. But it is by renewing or re mikvahing or rebaptizing and seeking forgiveness for our sins on a continual basis that Yahweh is merciful to forgive us and to save us.
But we must ask. We also must be obeying Yahweh and keeping His laws in order to be given the Holy Spirit. The Sabbath and the Holy Days, and the Sabbatical years.
This is a whole lot of teaching on this subject and I do not plan to go down this road today. But know this, as it says in Ephesians above, You trusted in Him then you heard His words or the Torah, with its promise of salvation to those who believe. Then you believed. You must now ask to be baptized in order to receive the Holy Spirit. It can not and will not be forced on you. You must ask, and once you have received it, it will help you to understand and connect the dots in the Torah. We shall discuss this more at a later date.
Many in the Messianic groups are big into the two houses of Jacob, coming back together. That is the house of Ephraim and the house of Judah coming together and becoming one house. This is the teaching of the Two sticks of Israel as told to us in Ezekiel.
Some are trying to make it happen right now in our day and are working towards this cause. What is the truth about this subject and how does it fit into those things I have been teaching on the Jubilee? Much in every way.
Here is where they get the teaching that the two houses will come back together. In Ezekiel 37. When and how is what we are going to explain today.
15 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 16 “As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ 17 Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand. 18 “And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Will you not show us what you mean by these?’– 19 say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.” ‘ 20 And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. 21 Then say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22 and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. 23 They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God. 24 “David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. 25 Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever. 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 28 The nations also will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” ‘ “
So many Messianic groups have made great doctrines out of this one teaching. But Yahweh Himself has said that this will not happen till David is made King over them and they have been brought back from their dwelling places where they have sinned. This means that David will have been brought back from the grave. This means that the resurrection of the saints has taken place and not before hand. So how do we reconcile this with all the rest of scriptures?
This week we shall answer the question of when this is to happen and how it is going to happen, and how this is related to the Jubilee and Sabbatical years. Get ready for an eye opener. Even I am surprised at the things I have shown here, because as I write, other thoughts occur and I incorporate them into the discussion and I too am blown away by some of this.
Before we get started take special note of verse 21: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land;
First it is Yahweh who will bring Israel together, not any group or organized effort to bring this about. It is Yahweh who will perform it and cause it to take place. This is not an Alliyah or a re-immigration to Israel by your choice.
In our past studies we have shown you how Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh, England and the USA, are under the five curses of Lev 26. We have shown you how these curses fit in a chronological order, showing how prophetic events take place at certain times according to the seventh year Sabbatical cycle.
If you have not already done so please do go to Times Up! No More excuses and click on Jubilee file #1 and take it to the printer and make a copy for your self for future reference. On this chart you can see all the curses as they have taken place and when they have taken place in the past and future during this last Jubilee cycle, which we are in. You can see how every 7 years a new curse is added to the previous one.
2008 is the year of this writing and tells us we are in the 6th year of the drought years.
2009 is the Sabbatical year when we are not to plant anything, which means we should have two years supply of food for our family on hand. We need to start putting food away now.
You can then see each of the other curses and when they are to begin to take place as we have discussed over the course of these past six weeks. If you are new to these News Letters, please do take the time to review them. They are important and detailed, and lead up to this weeks study.
2010 begins the series of pestilence outbreaks. It is added to the drought and to terrorism which have been the Head line news during each cycle. Drought is also famines.
In 2017 the sword is released on Israel, the USA and England [Israel according to the bible] will be destroyed.
2024 after the Sabbatical year of 2023 in which the war is over, the main event of these years will be the prisoners of war. The rag tagged remnant of the USA and England and her commonwealth turned into prisoner and abused by the victors. They are to be sold in Egypt, and no one will buy them, according to Isaiah. Have you read Isaiah 11:11-16 where Israel is cross over the rivers a second time on dry ground from Egypt, and Isaiah 43:16.
We have covered all of this in detail in the last 6 weeks, so I will not do so again now.
It is because Israel is already in captivity and no longer is a great power that she is not mentioned in the book of Revelation. She is but a shadow of her former self. A remnant.
1Pe 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
There has to be a time when judgment is ended. From the time when Peter said this Judgment was on the House of Israel.
Let consider what judgment is. It is a period of time when you are given the chance to repent and turn away from the punishment which is to come.
We read in Jonah 3: 4 And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”
5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. 6 Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. 7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water. 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9 Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish? 10 Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.
I asked a brother for some input and he sent me the following on 40 and judgment.
As far as 40 years and probation (after which comes judgment
1. Moshe fled at age 40 and was called at age 80 to deliver Yisrael a 40-year span.
2. Yisrael was in the wilderness 40 years until all fell/died who disobeyed; after this time, those who obeyed entered into the Promised Land! (You do remember/realize the year they entered was the start of a new Jubilee cycle?)
3. Moshe fasted 40 days when receiving the Torah.
4. He fasted another 40 days on ground after breaking the first set of Tables.
5. Yahushua fasted 40 days in the wilderness and overcame in a type of what Yisrael had failed to do after coming out of Egypt. The irony: Yisrael of old had plenty yet failed to overcome, while Yahushua had nothing, yet prevailed marvelously!
6. Yisrael rejected Yahushua and was judged within 40 years as Yerushalyim was destroyed.
7. In 1973 the USA passed Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion. 40 years after 1973 will be 2013. While not setting dates, I suspect America will fall in that year, beginning at least part of the prophesied captivity.
I disagree with the part about the USA falling that year but I left it as it was and did not delete it because this brother does see a pattern for judgment being 40 years. Time will reveal if he is right or not.
What I want to show you here is this.
40 Jubilee cycles from the time the Temple was destroyed is 40 multiplied by 49, not 50. 40 X 49 = 1960. 1960 is the time of Judgment on Israel after the Temple is destroyed. That time or period of judgment to end will be 1960 + 70AD = 2030
When you look on the chart you will see that the period of captivity will end in 2030. Or the time of Israel’s judgment will be at an end.
Last week I reviewed with you the meaning of The Feast of Trumpets. It is the beginning of the 10 days of Awe. The time between Trumpets and the Day of Atonement. A time of judgment on the world, which will end on the Day of Atonement when Satan is locked away.
Trumpets begins the 10 days of Judgment on whom? Israel has already been judged and punished. This judgment is now on the rest of the world. It is as though the world which has now beaten up on the future bride, and now the groom will avenge his displeasure on those who did this to the bride.
This judgment is completed on the Day of Atonement. This is why I reviewed these two yearly Holy Days with you last week. So you can understand. The Jews kept Passover for 1400 years and never understood the meaning of the day. Then when the Messiah came they killed Him.
Don’t make the same mistake with these Holy Days. Understand them.
The Feast of Trumpets represents the beginning of the time of Judgement on the world. Israel is in deep repentance during this time for the sins she has committed. She is in repentance because she is now in captivity and many have died and she is now awakening to how and why she is in captivity once again in our day and age.
This is from 2024 to 2030. A period of seven years according to the Sabbatical cycle. On the yearly cycle this is the first seven days during the days of Awe between Trumpets and Atonement.
I asked you to study this out last week so I will not repeat it here. But you do need to know the meaning of these two Feast Days. If you do not go back to last weeks study and review them.
I have said in the chart that the Captivity ends in 2030. Why? Always be asking why this or that happens and then pray for the answer. The answer is so amazing to me.
Simchat Torah or Simchas Torah is a Jewish holiday marking the conclusion of the annual cycle of public Torah readings, and the beginning of a new cycle. Simchat Torah is Hebrew for “rejoicing with the Torah”. On the morning of Simchat Torah, the last parashah of Deuteronomy and the first parashah of Genesis are read out in the synagogue. Most communities have a special Torah reading on the eve of Simchat Torah. At both the morning and evening services in the synagogue, the ark is opened, and the Torah Scrolls are carried around the synagogue in seven circuits, accompanied by singing and dancing.
In 2005 at the Feast in New England I was first shown this. Then at the Feast in Israel one month later I took part in this dancing with the torah. This was the year I was learning about the Calendar so I kept two Feast this year.
When they were dancing with the torah scrolls, to me it was as if we were dancing with the Groom at the wedding. Yahshua who became the word, and the word which are contained in the Torah Scrolls. It was so beautiful, to watch and be a part of. I look forward to Simchat Torah each year.
This Torah reading is done each week from Feast to Feast. A different parashah each week. Some times the parashah readings seem to match up with prophetic events in our time and in history. On certain days there are special readings.
One such special day is called Shabbat Shuva. Shabbat Shuva is the Shabbat between Rosh Hashana, The Feast of Trumpets and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. It is called thus after the Haftara from Hoshea 14 which reads:
“Shuva Yisrael – Return, O Israel, unto Hashem your G-d.”
During these days we are obligated to do tshuva, to repent. In fact, some people call this Shabbat Tshuva since it is the Shabbat of the Ten Days of repentance. It is customary in all congregations for the Rabbi to give a sermon calling upon the people to repent before Yom Kippur. He also reviews the laws of Yom Kippur.
Hoshea 14:2-10; Yoel 2:11-27; Micha 7:18-20
This Shabbos is known as Shabbos Shuva – the Shabbos of Return because the Haftorah begins with the words, “Shuva (Return) Yisroel to G-d” Gleaned from both Hoshea and Yoel, the prophets describe G-d’s desire to forgive His children, if only they will repent. The fast of Yom Kippur is mentioned as well as the rewards awaiting us if we proclaim G-d in our midst.
The Shabbat that occurs in this period is known as Shabbat Shuvah (the Sabbath of Return). This is considered a rather important Shabbat.
HOS 14:1 O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.
We have sinned and been removed from the land for our sins. Yahweh is now calling for us to return to Him. To return to the land of Canaan, to our promised land. He then tells us what to bring;
Verse 2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD:
That is we are to bring the Torah Scrolls with us when we come back to the land
We are told in Joel when this occurs. At the Feast of Trumpets, Blow the trumpet, and at the Day of Atonement, sanctify a fast. Notice where, in Zion. JOEL 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Is this when the bride groom comes out of His chamber? Is this not when the Bride come out of her hiding, her closet? Keep in mind this scripture is talking about two different events which occur on this day. One the return to the land and the upcoming marriage which is yet later.
Take a look at this word closet.

And this word brethren brings us right back the study we did on Noah’s Ark which I have just realized. Some of you might want to look at it at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=163 which is about the covering of Noah’s ark and the true meaning of Gopher Wood. And I also just realized that this word also ties into another study we did last fall about the Tallit which you can also read at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=181 Wow, even I am learning things I had not expected to learn as I sat down to write this. Awesome.
Khaw-faw, khoop-pah a covering or a Tallit or the cloud that covered Israel by day and fire by night. And is also the defined by the day of Atonement when our sins are covered by Yahweh. This is also referenced in the zodiac of Cancer, the sheep fold of protection we covered in a recent news Letter. This has so much meaning and is such an awesome study. Simply amazing what is contained in this understanding.
Before I get to far gone on this rabbit trail I will get back to the subject at hand.
Here is the rest of the Torah reading for Shabbat Shuva.
Micah 7:1515 “As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them [Literally- him, collective for the captives] wonders.” 16 The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; They shall put their hand over their mouth; Their ears shall be deaf. 17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent; They shall crawl from their holes like snakes of the earth. They shall be afraid of the Lord our God, And shall fear because of You. 18 Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy. 19 He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins Into the depths of the sea. 20 You will give truth to Jacob And mercy to Abraham, Which You have sworn to our fathers From days of old.
Again we are told of the second time we are to be brought out of Egypt as captives. We just read in Isaiah the same thing.
Jeremiah 50:4 “In those days and in that time,” says the Lord, “The children of Israel shall come, They and the children of Judah together; With continual weeping they shall come, And seek the Lord their God. 5 They shall ask the way to Zion, With their faces toward it, saying, ‘Come and let us join ourselves to the Lord In a perpetual covenant That will not be forgotten.’ 6 “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; They have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; They have forgotten their resting place. 7 All who found them have devoured them; And their adversaries said, ‘We have not offended, Because they have sinned against the Lord, the habitation of justice, The Lord, the hope of their fathers.’ 8 “Move from the midst of Babylon, Go out of the land of the Chaldeans; And be like the rams before the flocks. 20 In those days and in that time,” says the Lord, “The iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none; And the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; For I will pardon those whom I preserve.
Is Jeremiah not describing Shabbat Shuva. Repentance and forgiveness and returning to the land? Yes, he is most definitely!
Let us read Isaiah who has much more to add to this study.
Isaiah 10: 20 And it shall come to pass in that day That the remnant of Israel, And such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, Will never again depend on him who defeated them, But will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. 21 The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, To the Mighty God. 22 For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, A remnant of them will return; The destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness. 23 For the Lord God of hosts Will make a determined end In the midst of all the land.
24 Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: “O My people, who dwell in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrian. He shall strike you with a rod and lift up his staff against you, in the manner of Egypt. 25 For yet a very little while and the indignation will cease, as will My anger in their destruction.” 26 And the Lord of hosts will stir up a scourge for him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; as His rod was on the sea, so will He lift it up in the manner of Egypt. 27 It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.
Isaiah is talking about the Assyrians, Germany who will come and take us captives. After they have done this, Germany will move down to Jerusalem with the anti Christ. After this we are to return to the land. A remnant will return. And we should look to the Exodus of Egypt for clues.
Isaiah 14: 1 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob. 2 Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the Lord; they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors. 3 It shall come to pass in the day the Lord gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve,
Isaiah is telling us that those people who held us captives, the Germans and the Arabs and others will now become our captives when they bring us back to the land. Exactly how this is to occur, I do not know. But Yahweh is going to cause some mighty events to take place during this time. Those who held us as prisoners and slaves will now become our servants.
Isaiah 27: 12 And it shall come to pass in that day That the Lord will thresh, From the channel of the River to the Brook of Egypt; And you will be gathered one by one, O you children of Israel. 13 So it shall be in that day: The great trumpet will be blown; They will come, who are about to perish in the land of Assyria, And they who are outcasts in the land of Egypt, And shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.
Yahweh is going to search each and every one of us out where ever we are in Egypt with our Arab task masters or in Assyria with our German masters where we are about to die. It shall be at the Trumpet. The Feast of Trumpets, when we are told to come back to the land of Israel.
It is my opinion that an announcement from the United Nations will declare that all the Americans and English and Dutch and Norwegians and Swedes and other Israelite prisoners will be commanded to be brought back to Jerusalem. The question is why and the answer is also amazing, which we shall discuss next week.
Isaiah 60: 9 Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from afar, Their silver and their gold with them, To the name of the Lord your God, And to the Holy One of Israel, Because He has glorified you. 10 “The sons of foreigners shall build up your walls, And their kings shall minister to you; For in My wrath I struck you, But in My favor I have had mercy on you. 11
The Ships of Tarshish will bring us back to the land from around the world. Again, the question is Why. Next week you shall know.
Here are some more scriptures for this time of the days of Awe. The Days of judgment .
Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”
Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
This takes place at the end of the Days of Awe, which is the Day of Atonement
Joh 16:8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Joh 16:11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
Let me summarize what I am trying to show you with the things contained in this News Letter.
No one else in any group that I am aware of is saying or teaching anything like what I am showing you here. The first time I spoke about it was on the Day of Atonement in 2007 and then again on the Speaking tour with the Prophesy Club. And this is now the first time I have tried to explain it in writing and it may be a little mixed up as I put it to paper for the very first time.
Israel, the USA and England, and her commonwealth, have sinned against Yahweh. He punishes them in increasing increments every 7 years in correlation to the Jubilee cycle. Terror, drought and famine, pestilence, then war and lastly captivity.
At the end of this captivity only about 10% of the population of all these people are left. It will be while they are in captivity that they will once again turn to Yahweh and repent and ask for forgiveness and determine to once again obey Him.
This captivity will end after seven years, in 2030, a sabbatical year as you can see on the chart. Yet at the same time Yahweh is now judging Babylon and the world, starting at 2024. Some how the world will see the difference between what happens to them and what happens to the children of Israel. Much like when they were in Egypt and the first three plagues affected everyone and then the rest of the plagues only affected the Egyptians. Yahweh will have compassion and mercy on His people if they will repent and turn from their rebellious ways.
This is what the Holy Days of the Feast of Trumpets teach us. We know the Judgment is ended when the Azazel goat or Satan has the sins of the world confessed over his head as shown to us in the ceremonies of the Day of Atonement. But we have not reached this point. We are only at the 7th day of the days of Awe, which when changed to the 7 years of the ten years of Judgment brings us to the Shabbat called Shuva.
Between Trumpets and Atonement is always at least one Shabbat and some times two. When we look on the chart of the sabbatical years which are represented by the weekly Sabbath, it turns out to be in the seventh year, which matches exactly the time needed to full fill the 7 years for captivity. It also ties precisely into the next 7 year period for the Tribulation which I will discuss next week.
This Sabbatical year is the same as the weekly Sabbath which falls between Trumpets and Atonement each year and is traditionally called Shabbat Shuva. The Sabbath of return. When we apply this understanding to the Sabbatical year, this year of 2030 which is a land rest year, it is the year of return to the land of Israel from captivity. Those who were you captors will bring you back to the land. Even the ships of Tarshish will gather you and the Arabs will gather you from all over the world to bring you back to the land of Israel.
This understanding has got to be the most revolutionary one I have come across. You may not be convinced of it. That is OK. Weigh those things I have brought forward to date with this teaching and consider it after next weeks teaching.
After all as Paul said we look through the glass darkly. That is, prophesy is not always clear to see. But I do believe the Holy Spirit has brought some clarity to a confusing subject.
May Yahweh bless our eyesight and our understanding of His plans and may we all be ready when they take place.
