For Such a Time as This, and Being Grateful and Thankful

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.

News Letter 5844-034
15th day of the Eighth month 5844 years after creation

November 15, 2008

Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

I would like to once again welcome the many new readers to this News Letter and this web site. The only web site dedicated to teaching you about the many messages the bible shows us that revolve around the Sabbatical and Jubilee years.

I will soon get back to the Jubilee teachings but I have one more bee in my bonnet that I have to get off my chest.

I have once again been asked to invite any one who would like to have a copy of the DVD The Chronological Order of Prophecies in the Jubilee and does not already have one to e-mail Karen at and she will send one to you for free.

Karen and her husband have come to see how important the information on this DVD is and just as I do they realize that there is just 4 months until the Sabbatical year begins. If people do not keep this Sabbatical year then they will endure the curse of Lev 26:21 of Famine and Pestilence, and will not get to keep the Sabbatical year until 7 years later, which will be much harder to keep for all of us due to deteriorating conditions that will then prevail.

Karen Writes;
Could we – perhaps – reopen the offer of another 15 copies of the DVD – no strings attached? Because you are correct, four months is not much time.


Brethren if you know of any way that we can let many others know of this Jubilee message please do your part and help to open those doors. If you have to write to those religious radio and TV stations then please do so. Perhaps if they receive many requests from different people then they might look at it.

If you want to place an ad in your local paper for people to view it on the web site then do so. Or write the President or your congressman and let them know. Or take it to your local pastor or home group.

We only have four months until the Sabbatical year starts in Mar or April. Those who learn about it now will have to have time to prove it and study it and to stock up on food.

If I sound like I am begging you, then know for a fact I am. I do not get one penny from any of the sales of the DVD. But because the next curse of famine and Pestilence is aimed at our children, yours and mine and your relatives and friends and the people in your own church group. It is because Yahweh has said that He will rob you of your children, if you do not begin to obey and keep the commandments. It is because of this that I beg you to add the names of those you know to the News Letter email list and to tell them to watch the DVD either on the web site or to buy their own or let Karen buy one for them.

If we break the Sabbath, then we get another chance to repent and keep it in just seven days. If we did not keep the Holy Days because you just learned about them, then you have the opportunity to keep them starting at Passover in just 4 months time. They come each and every year. But if you do not keep this Sabbatical year which starts in the spring at Aviv which is when Passover is, then you will not get to prove to Yahweh that you want to obey Him until the next sabbatical year in 2016-2017. This also means that even though you kept the Sabbath and the Holy Days just as the Jews did before Jerusalem fell to Babylon, you and your children will be exposed and not protected from the coming famine and pestilence. You will be playing Russian roulette with their lives.

In the Book of Esther chapter 4:13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Brethren do not think this is my job alone. I can not do this by myself. And do not think that you will escape those things which are surely going to come by remaining silent and hiding in your own home. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and help will come from somewhere else. But you and your family will drink from Yahweh’s curses as He has told us they will come in Lev 26 and you will watch the members of your house hold perish through famine and then pestilence. Yet who knows whether or not you have been called for such a time as this?

Perhaps you can place an ad on the most popular radio station in your area. If you can then you contact them and I will give you the ad. You pay for it for one month or two.

Perhaps you have another idea. Then go for it and put your plan into action. It is time to get off our butts and move forward on this and as we do Yahweh will open the doors that you are knocking on.

Maybe you have the ability to translate the DVD into Spanish or French or Portuguese or Italian or Dutch or German or Swedish or Finnish or Norwegian or some other language.

Yahshua said in Mr 8:35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.
In the movie Peter Pan the alligator could be heard as it went by Captain Hook, tick tock, tick ,tock. Time is going by brethren and when the time is full and the hour come I do not want to be on the receiving end of Yahweh’s punishment. I would rather say to Him I have done all I could do. Will you be able to say the same thing?

Do not let what was said in Ezekiel be said about us. Notice that Yahweh says Sabbaths, which means more than just the weekly Sabbath.
Ezekiel 22:23 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 24 “Son of man, say to her: ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ 25 The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst. 26 Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken. 29 The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger. 30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. 31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord God.

I am looking for help. Will you stand in the gap and help to get this message out? Time is ticking away. I thank you all for the help that many of you have already been in copying and spreading the News Letters and forwarding them to others. I have not forgotten and I do appreciate your efforts too. It is now time for others to step up and add their talents to this message.

I have been advertising on KMLS Radio and soon will be doing ads on the local radio here in Toronto and Calgary. These ads drain my finances very quickly but I continue to do them as I can.

I have also finished the rewriting of the book about the Jubilee and Sabbatical cycle with much more information in it. It will soon be available on line for free for you to download. This too has cost me a lot of money in editing fees. I share this with you again so you know I am not here to profit from those Yahweh is calling. I am trying to reach those not yet called and to share what I have learned with those that are following His way.

I have seen how much prayers help, so please do not stop. I do need help.

Before I ever started this web site I wrote an article for the United News of the United Church of God. It was on giving thanks and I still think it is an article that should be reviewed every once in while, so I ask you to take the time this week and read this article at

Once you have done this I want to add to it, those things I am going to say this week.

I do read every e-mail I get and answer most of them. We, brethren are living in the worst of times and at the same time the greatest of times to have ever lived. This is a great paradox. We get to see just how terrible this world is and at the same time not realize just how corrupted we have become, just by being in this world. In understanding the Jubilee message which this web site is dedicated to we are also privileged to possibly be able to live through until the Messiah returns in just a few more years.

Although I say privileged, I also know and hope you do too, that this will be the worst of any time ever in the history of man. This is why I have been writing these News Letters, in order to let you know just how bad things are getting and how much worst they are going to get. All so you can get yourself prepared spiritually.

The more popular this web site becomes the greater the responsibility I feel to try and make sure you understand the many things taught here.

Isa 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins.

I have received a great deal of emails this week in response to last weeks News Letter.

Excellent writings, thank you. Especially appreciate the list of “obedience” scriptures presented in your first “bee-in-the-bonnet” subject. Very concise, and will be very helpful when called upon to defend my faith and service to YHVH.

Shalom Brother,

Your words are so true once again.
I was worried you had fallen to the illuminati conspiracies. Thanks for writing what you did.

Along with the thank you’s, this week a brother sent me the following email. I have checked with the David letterman show to see if it really was from him and it was not.
It matters not for the context is most appropriate.

Also this week on WDCX out of Buffalo it seemed that each and every religious show was about the subject I am sharing to day. That of being thankful and expressing it, and of not grumbling or complaining as we seem to do more and more.

The Letter starts;
It does say a lot about us Americans and how much we like to whine.

No matter what your political convictions are this is an eye opener….What a thankless people we are!!!
From an unknown writer; (Actually from A Mr. Smith on World News Net daily written in 2005)
‘As most of you know I am not a President Bush fan, nor have I ever been, but this is not about Bush, it is about us, as Americans, and it seems to hit the mark.’

‘The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine and came across some Poll data I found rather hard to believe. It must be true given the source, right?

The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed and 69 percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the President. In essence 2/3 of the citizenry just ain’t happy and want a change. So being the knuckle dragger I am, I started thinking, ‘What are we so unhappy about?’

A. Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week?

B. Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter?

C. Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job?

D. Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?

E. Maybe it is the ability to drive our cars and trucks from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present identification papers as we move through each state.

F. Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter?

G. I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough either.

H. Or could it be that when we wreck our car, emergency workers show up and provide services to help all and even send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

I. Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of Americans who own a home.

J. You may be upset with knowing that in the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus saving you, your family, and your belongings.

K. Or if, while at home watching one of your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with a gun and a bulletproof vest will come to defend you and your family against attack or loss.

L. This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods where 90% of teenagers own cell phones and computers.

M. How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world?

Maybe that is what has 67% of you folks unhappy.

Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S., yet has a great disdain for its citizens. They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about what we don’t have, and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.

I know, I know. What about the president who took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The president who has a measly 31 percent approval rating? Is this the same president who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11? The president that cut taxes to bring an economy out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful brats safe from terrorist attacks? The commander in chief of an all-volunteer army that is out there defending you and me?

Did you hear how bad the President is on the news or talk show? Did this news affect you so much, make you so unhappy you couldn’t take a look around for yourself and see all the good things and be glad? Think about it……are you upset at the President because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the ‘Media’ told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind every day.

Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country. They didn’t have to go. They are able to refuse to go and end up with either a ”general” discharge, an ‘other than honorable” discharge or, worst case scenario, a ”dishonorable’ discharge after a few days in the brig.

So why then the flat-out discontentment in the minds of 69 percent of Americans?

Say what you want, but I blame it on the media. If it bleeds it leads and they specialize in bad news. Everybody will watch a car crash with blood and guts.

How many will watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The media knows this and media outlets are for-profit corporations. They offer what sells, and when criticized, try to defend their actions by ‘justifying’ them in one way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J. Simpson to write a book about how he didn’t kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it this way……Insane!

Turn off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times for the bottom of your bird cage. Then start being grateful for all we have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad. We are among the most blessed people on Earth and should thank God several times a day, or at least be thankful and appreciative.’

‘With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, ‘Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?’

The one thing about the preceding is that I wish I had said it. It is most appropriate to us all.

In Exodus we can read about the 10 plagues that the Nation of Israel witnessed and were spared from. These people actually saw the plagues take place and all the first born of Egypt die that fateful Passover night.

Then we read in Exodus 14: 10 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. 11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!” 13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
After all these things these people, our ancestors, still doubted Moses and Yahweh.
In Chapter 15 we read of the people again grumbling having just witnessed the great miracle of the Red Sea being divided so they could cross on dry ground. See the article Exodus Another study of the facts

22 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.) 24 So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?” 25 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.

After now seeing this miracle at the waters of Marah and with the Red Sea crossing still fresh on their minds again our ancestors complained. Exodus 16: 1 The whole Israelite community set out from Elim and came to the Desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had come out of Egypt. 2 In the desert the whole community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. 3 The Israelites said to them, “If only we had died by the Lord’s hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death.” 4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. 5 On the sixth day they are to prepare what they bring in, and that is to be twice as much as they gather on the other days.” 6 So Moses and Aaron said to all the Israelites, “In the evening you will know that it was the Lord who brought you out of Egypt, 7 and in the morning you will see the glory of the Lord, because he has heard your grumbling against him. Who are we, that you should grumble against us?” 8 Moses also said, “You will know that it was the Lord when he gives you meat to eat in the evening and all the bread you want in the morning, because he has heard your grumbling against him. Who are we? You are not grumbling against us, but against the Lord.” 9 Then Moses told Aaron, “Say to the entire Israelite community, ‘Come before the Lord, for he has heard your grumbling.'” 10 While Aaron was speaking to the whole Israelite community, they looked toward the desert, and there was the glory of the Lord appearing in the cloud. 11 The Lord said to Moses, 12 “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God.'”
13 That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. 14 When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. Moses said to them, “It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Each one is to gather as much as he needs. Take an omer for each person you have in your tent.'” 17 The Israelites did as they were told; some gathered much, some little. 18 And when they measured it by the omer, he who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little. Each one gathered as much as he needed. 19 Then Moses said to them, “No one is to keep any of it until morning.” 20 However, some of them paid no attention to Moses; they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of maggots and began to smell. So Moses was angry with them. 21 Each morning everyone gathered as much as he needed, and when the sun grew hot, it melted away.

And then again after all this they again grumbled in Chapter 17: 1 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 So they quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the Lord to the test?” 3 But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?” 4 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.” 5 The Lord answered Moses, “Walk on ahead of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the place Massah and Meribah because the Israelites quarreled and because they tested the Lord saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”

This now brings us up to the giving of the law on the day of Pentecost which was 50 days after they left Egypt. We read in Chapter 19: 16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, the whole mountain trembled violently, 19 and the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder. Then Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him. 20 The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain.

In chapter 20 we read how all of Israel saw this and our ancestors heard it in their own ears. : 18 When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance 19 and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.” 20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.” 21 The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.
22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this: ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven:

In Chapter 24 we read how the people made the covenant with Yahweh and how the elders saw Yahweh and people saw the fire on the mountain. : 9 Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up 10 and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear as the sky itself. 11 But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.
12 The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone, with the law and commands I have written for their instruction.” 13 Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and Moses went up on the mountain of God. 14 He said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. Aaron and Hur are with you, and anyone involved in a dispute can go to them.” 15 When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it, 16 and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud. 17 To the Israelites the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. 18 Then Moses entered the cloud as he went on up the mountain. And he stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights.

After the people saw all of this and then they made the tabernacle and all its things of gold and still we read in Numbers 11:1 Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp. 2 When the people cried out to Moses, he prayed to the Lord and the fire died down. 3 So that place was called Taberah, because fire from the Lord had burned among them.
4 The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5 We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost–also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. 6 But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!” 7 The manna was like coriander seed and looked like resin. 8 The people went around gathering it, and then ground it in a handmill or crushed it in a mortar. They cooked it in a pot or made it into cakes. And it tasted like something made with olive oil. 9 When the dew settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down. 10 Moses heard the people of every family wailing, each at the entrance to his tent. The Lord became exceedingly angry, and Moses was troubled. 11 He asked the Lord, “Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? 12 Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their forefathers? 13 Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep wailing to me, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ 14 I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me. 15 If this is how you are going to treat me, put me to death right now–if I have found favor in your eyes–and do not let me face my own ruin.”
16 The Lord said to Moses: “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the Tent of Meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take of the Spirit that is on you and put the Spirit on them. They will help you carry the burden of the people so that you will not have to carry it alone. 18 “Tell the people: ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The Lord heard you when you wailed, “If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!” Now the Lord will give you meat, and you will eat it. 19 You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, 20 but for a whole month–until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it–because you have rejected the Lord, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”‘” 21 But Moses said, “Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, ‘I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!’ 22 Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?” 23 The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you.”
24 So Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said. He brought together seventy of their elders and had them stand around the Tent. 25 Then the Lord came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took of the Spirit that was on him and put the Spirit on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did not do so again. 26 However, two men, whose names were Eldad and Medad, had remained in the camp. They were listed among the elders, but did not go out to the Tent. Yet the Spirit also rested on them, and they prophesied in the camp. 27 A young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” 28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ aide since youth, spoke up and said, “Moses, my lord, stop them!” 29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put his Spirit on them!” 30 Then Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp. 31 Now a wind went out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32 All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34 Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had craved other food. 35 From Kibroth Hattaavah the people traveled to Hazeroth and stayed there.

But this people still did not get it, because we read in Number 13 of the 12 spies who had gone up to the Promised land and had now come back : 26 They came back to Moses and Aaron and the whole Israelite community at Kadesh in the Desert of Paran. There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 They gave Moses this account: “We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. 28 But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites live in the Negev; the Hittites, Jebusites and Amorites live in the hill country; and the Canaanites live near the sea and along the Jordan.” 30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”

And in chapter 14: 1 That night all the people of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. 2 All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert! 3 Why is the Lord bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”
5 Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there. 6 Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes 7 and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. 8 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them.” 10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the Lord appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites.
11 The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.”

Here is the point to all of this brethren. As David Letterman has said “Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S., yet has a great disdain for its citizens. They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about what we don’t have, and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.”

No matter how much Yahweh has done for us we still complain about the things we do not have. The Flesh pots of Egypt and the melons. Yet we have forgotten all the miracles Yahweh has done in front of our very eyes.

The Israelites saw the Red Sea parted and the Egyptians killed. They heard Yahweh’s own voice, and still they complained and were not thankful and they were not grateful. How about you?

On this web site I have shown you repeatedly that it is Yahweh who has sent the Terror to the USA and UK and her commonwealth. That was the first curse.

It is Yahweh who has sent the drought and wild fires and hurricanes and cyclones to the USA and the UK and Australia. Some of them have been biblical in size and depth. This was the second curse. Both of these curses are still going to carry on along with the other curses that I am now going to remind you of again.

Yahweh is the one who has sent this world wide financial crisis, we now find ourselves in and it is going to get worse. Yahweh again is the one who will allow the famine to come upon the world with in the next few years as we have warned you. And it is Yahweh who is going to send the pestilence that will kill your children and be so bad that the streets are empty. This is just the third curse and we are about to enter into it.

Once again it will be Yahweh who will allow the fourth curse to come and send to our own shore and to our own country and to our own homes the sword which will not spare anyone young or old male or female. Nothing happens with out his approval. Read Job 1 and 2 again.

And IF Yahweh has allowed your sorry butts to survive all of this, then it is He who will take you and place you into captivity where many more will die.

What is it that He wants from you?

That you appreciate the magnitude of the things He has done for your own good. And that you are grateful for His taking care of you and preserving you.

We can read this in Lev 26 where these curses are explained, but we have to read starting in verse 40 to hear what He wants.
40 “‘But if they will confess their sins and the sins of their fathers–their treachery against me and their hostility toward me, 41 which made me hostile toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies–then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they pay for their sin, 42 I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. 43 For the land will be deserted by them and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them. They will pay for their sins because they rejected my laws and abhorred my decrees. 44 Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, breaking my covenant with them. I am the Lord their God. 45 But for their sake I will remember the covenant with their ancestors whom I brought out of Egypt in the sight of the nations to be their God. I am the Lord.'” 46 These are the decrees, the laws and the regulations that the Lord established on Mount Sinai between himself and the Israelites through Moses.

Read this carefully. We Must humble our hearts and confess our sins. That is repent deeply for how we have rebelled against our creator. And we will pay for our sins. Read it, Yahweh says it twice.

They will pay for their sins because they rejected my laws and abhorred my decrees.

So many think they are saved by grace and then can go on sinning. Not So! To repent is to stop sinning. That is to stop rejecting His laws and abhorring His decrees.

2 Chronicles 7:12 the Lord appeared to him at night and said: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices. 13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.

Ezekiel 14: 12 The word of the Lord came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, 14 even if these three men–Noah, Daniel and Job–were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord. 15 “Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts, 16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate. 17 “Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and their animals, 18 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved. 19 “Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals, 20 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness. 21 “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments–sword and famine and wild beasts and plague–to kill its men and their animals!

Brethren please understand. It is Yahweh who is going to allow and or send the terrible things that are about to happen and are happening right now to our land. Many around us and even some of us will die because of these terrible events that are coming.

But even though we have seen all that Yahweh has done in our lives we can not revert back to complaining about that which we don’t have or never got to have or that we now must do with out.

No, instead of complaining we must be thankful to Him for all we have been able to enjoy, and for where we have lived and the many things He allowed us to have. To do other wise would cause His anger to rise up even more as it did to our ancestors.

Stop using Yahweh as your wish list or your sacred name santa claus, asking for all those things that you want. No we were told how to pray in Mathew 6: 5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

We are not to vainly be repeating the same words the same prayer to our Father over and over like the pagans. I don’t care if this is the catholic version of repetitious prayers or the Jewish ones which get repeated over and over. We are to have an ongoing conversation with Him.

Imagine talking to some one and all they do is repeat the same thing over and over. Now imagine yourself as Yahweh and you had to listen to those who repeated the same prayer each day and night. I would not do it. He wants to have a conversation with you on an ongoing basis, and not just when you get in a jam.

Ask Yahweh how we can be helping Him in bringing His Kingdom about. Tell Him and your self How great is His name. Ask Him how you can help out in doing His will.

Give Him thanks for all He has done for you. List them out once in while, and just count the cost that He has paid for you so far. And above all else stop complaining about what you don’t have. The time is soon coming when you will be thankful you have your very breath, and that will be all you have.

In captivity you will be beaten and raped and starved and killed and you will not have a home or family. You will be lucky to be alive even though you may wish to be dead. It will be Him who sustains you, so be thank full now for all that you now have.

But between now and then you have the opportunity to do a work. So pray for that work to be done and ask Him how you can help do His work. Remember YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN. It is His will that we seek not your own Christmas wish list.

Do be thank full. And lastly, go and do a search of all the times the bibles says the word thank and thanks. We need to be much more grateful than we are now. We have so much to be thankful for. Those of you in North America, just compare what you have to most any country around the world. The many little things you take for granted.

You will soon think back to this time and then realize how much Yahweh has done for you. This will be in the captivity which will be here after 2023. Just 15 years from now.
So be thank full and be grateful for all you now have and get to enjoy now.
